Primary, or Convention?
The County Democratic Conven
tion which meets to morrow, (Wed
nesday) will determine whether we
are to have the primary system of
nominating officers or the old plan
of nominating by conventions. The
indications point very -decidedly to
the adoption of the primary system.
The subject has been talked of a
great deal recently, and most of the
delegates will come instructed as to
bow they are to vote on the ques
tion. The convention plan has be
come very obnoxious to a large
portion of the Democratic party in,
the County-for reasons that it is
not necessary to state-and there
are many who while believing it the
better plan of the two will favor the
primary for the sako of harmony,
thinking a change will give satisfac
tion.- As we have said before, it is
unfortunate that nominations should
be made by clubs in any way, but
there is a political necessity for it
now- on account of the peculiar cir
camstances that surround us. The
negroes, as a race, combine togeth
er, and in order to prevent their
getting the offices or putting men
in that are unfit, the whites must
combine against them. It is really
a fight between negro government
-and white gover-nment in this State.
There is no alternative left the
whites in the present condition of
affairs but to combine in organiza
- -tions ; it is their only safety. And
we confess, with regret, that it is
so, that we see rio other alternative
in the near future. This negro
element will continue to be a trou
blesome feature in politics. These
things being true the Democra.ts
should see to it that the club organ
izations are not abused. The or
iginal and real purpose of organiza
tion must not be forgotten ; which.
is to place the best men in office.
it is solely upon this understanding
that the great majority of Demo
crats have consented to ignore pri
vate preferences and to submit
their judgment to the judgment of
a majority of their fellow Democrats.
They have entered the clubs from
patriotic motives-not to advance
themselves, nor to advance their
friends. They have no axes to
grind, and they do not propose to
turn the grindstone for - others'
axes. They have no personal nor
partisan ends to subserve. Their
-membership in the clubs costs
them sacrifices-sacrifice of time
and means, and a sacrifice, to some
extent, of the free exercise of suf
frage. These sacrifices they are
willing to make so long as the or
iginal purpose of the organization
is observed. But they demand fair
-treatment, and if they don't get it
The Democratic organization will
f-all to pieces. They don't propose,
after all their'sacriflees, to be used
by eliques and combinations, and
they are not disposed to waste
their time or to put themselves to
extra trouble in trying to prevent
wire-pulling and log-rolling. This
cIess of men compose the great
-mass of the Democratic party.
They are content to work in har
ness so long as the Democrats are
organized only against the Radicals,
but when Democrats combine
against Democrats the object of
party organization is perverted and
defeated ; the professional politician
and the demagogue then capture
the "machine", and run it in their
own interest. it is just such abuse
of party organization that has cre
ated so much dissatisfaction, and
that accounts for the political leth
argy that now prevails. The only
true principle upon which to vote
for a man is upon his~ merits, wheth
er it be in a primary election, or a
nominating convention. This prin
ciple should be r-igidly observed
and enforced. in the coming cam
paigl. The first man, and every
man, detected in an attempt at "log
rolling" should be nipped in the
bud- It is all well and proper for
a candidate to work for himself, or
for his friends to work for him, in
n consideration that that club will
mupport its candidate, they practice
s fraud upon the rest of the party,
mnd are paving the way to a swift
lestruction of party orgapization.
We hope there will be noihing of
the kind in this campaign ; and
that every Democrat will in nomi
tating candidates support only men
whom his own best judgment selects
is-most competent and deserving ;
that every candidate will come be
fore the party on his own merits
alone. If such be the case it mat
ters very little whether the primary
or the convention system be adop
ted: either will give general satis
faction. All there is to fear is a
perversion and abuse of the Demo
cratic organization ; and this can
be prevented if every Democrat
will resolve to do his duty, and not
be made a tool of to advance the
interests of scheming office-seekers
and political understrappers.
Hill and Hampton on Kellogg.
The contested case of Spofford,
Dem., vs. Kellogg, Rep., in the
United States Senate is again under
discussion. The facts of the case
are, briefly, these: Kellogg was
elected Senator by the "Packard
Legislature" in January, 1877, for
the term of four years, beginning
March 4, 1877. This election took
place -while the Kellogg government
was upheld by the United States
army ; the pretended Legislature
did not have a quorum, and many
of those claiming membership had
never been elected. Kellogg used
bribery, even in that spurious body,
to secure his election. Louisiana
was in precisely the same condition
as this State was while the contest
was going on between Hampton and
Chamberlain, and between the
"Wallace -House" and the "Mackey
House". When Hayes removed the
troops from Louisiana the Nicholls
government assumed command and
the so-called Packard Legislature
vanished, those who were entitled
to seats going to the legal Legisia
tur4 the rest going home. The
legal Legislature elected Spofford
Senator. Both claimants presented
their credentials in the Senate, and
they were referred to the committee
on elections, which committee.*re
ported the 26th of November in
favor of Kellogg-there was a mi
nority report in favor of Spofford.
The reports were discussed for
many days. On the 30th of No
vember following a vote was taken,
and. the Senate by a strict party
vote, (the Republicans then being
in the majority,) adopted the fol
"That . William Pitt Kellogg is,
upon the merits of the case, entitled
to a seat in the Senate of the United
States from the State of Louisiana
for the term of six years, commen
cing on the 4th March, 1877, and
that he be admitted thereto upon
taking the proper oath.
"That Henry M. Spofford is not
entitled to a seat in the Senate of
the United States-"
After the Democrats secured a
majority in the Senate the case was
reopened, and an attempt is now
being made to oust Kellogg and
put in Spofford. The question has
been discussed very fully ; but the
most notable speeches yet made on
the subject were those of Hill, of
Georgia, and Hampton, of South
Carolina, the former in favor of un
eating Kellogg, the latter in oppo
sition-both delivered last week.
Hill, who is one of the brightest
minds of the country and a splen
did debater, male one of the finest
efforts of his life. He took the
ground that the body that elected
Kellogg was not a Legislature,
which is true, and -that allowing
him a seat is in violation of the U.
S. Constitution, which declares that
"The Senate of the United States
shail be composed of two Senators
from each State, chosen by the Legis
lature thereof." That Kellogg hav
ing been seated in violation of the
Constitution he cannot plead res
adjudicata, because an unconstitu
tional act can give no rights. That,
to allow Kellogg to retain his seat
would beto deprive Louisiana of~
the right to elect her own Senator,~
and to place the election in the
hands of the Senate itself.
Senator Hampton, and the few
other Democratic Senators who
agree with him, acknowledge that
all this is true, and that Spofford
ought to have been seated instead
of Kellogg ; but they maintain that
it is too late now to undo the
wrong ; that Kellogg having been
seated on the merits of the case it
vould establish a dangerous prece
:lent to turn him out now ; that
ifter a claimant has been thus
;ted the contest should end :that
>n the minority side Wonld be in
ecur' in his st:lt and would hold
t at the will of the majority.
There are strong arguwuts On
)oth sides. and it is hard to decide
vlhi-h side is right. On one side.
t is an outrage on Louisiana to
'orce unon her a Senator that she
ias not elected and that she does
>ot want to represent her ; on the
)ther side, to turn him out after he
2as been regularly seated would be
:o establish a precedent that might
.cad to most disastrous conse
plences. It is a question between
On the same side with Hampton
ire Butler, of South Carolina. ior
lon, of Georgia, Lamar, of Missis
sippi, Bayard, of Delaware, and sev.
eral others of the most distinguish
ed Democratic Senators. The Re
publicans, of course, are on the same
side, for party reasons ; and Kel
logg will hardly be turned out.
Senator Butler, of South Caroli
na, spoke Thursday, 19th, against
unseating Kellogg. He did not
think the Senate had the legal and
onstitutional right to unseat a
member who had been seated on
the merits of the case, except by
expulsion. It would be dangerous
to establish a precedent by which
an appeal may be taken from one
majority to another. It is to the
public interest that there be an end
to litigation ; b t if the decision of
one majority is to be reversed by
another a case may never cud.
Both Ham)ton an d Butler "went
for" Hill with gloves off for his
impertinent solicitqde for the honor
of South Carolina.
Hampton's speech was a plain.
sinmple, manly and straight-forward
talk ; Butler's was more elaborate
and more argumentative, and he
argued the question of res adjudica
with great-legal ability, as Hill had
done before him on the opposite
A 4Governors Prerogat ivets.
There are certain prerogatives
incident to the office of Governor :
among them the' pardoning power
and the appointment of Auditors
and Treasurers. Whether these
prerogatives should have been given
to the Governor is a question for
debate; but there is no question
that so long as the law places them
in his haw'is he shouldi not shirk
the responsibility of exercising
them. As to the pardoning power
our present Governor has adiopted
a very convenient rule, hut wve (dont
think a good one; he will not inter
fere with any sentence unless the
Judge who tried the case recoma
mends it. This virtually throws
the responsibility npon the Judges,
and gives to them the pardoning
It has been the custom of County
Conventions to name the Auditors
and Treasurers, and in many cases
the ex:ecutive appointment has
been simply a mantter of formn. We
think both offices should be elect
ive ; but so long as the law says
the Governor shall appoint them
he should shoulder the responsibil
ity and exercise his own discretion
in the matter, getting the necessary
information from whatever source
he deems best. If he should ask
County Conventions to recommend
suitable per-sons for the offices they
might, with propriety, do so'; but
for them to dictate to him whom
he shall appoint is not courteous,
and he should ti-eat such unsolicited
dictation as impertinent. ~This
manner of selecting officers is nei

note their sagacity and wisdom in se

GENERAL IJAGooD'S LETTER.-WC
ask attention to General Hagood's
letter in another column of the Press
and Banner. He speaks in a man
ner to command the respect of the
people of South Carolina. While no
manI in South Carolina served a more
gallant part in the war, his modesty
has prevente-d either him or his
friends from parading that fact before
the public. Politically we endorse
General- HJagood. We have, ho wever,
felt .called upon ir. the past to eriti
cise some ofr his oftcial acts in at
tempting to fasten what we thought
an excessive and unjust assessment
of the property of Abbev-ille county,
but for all this, if no third man
can be brought into the field, we
should favor his nomination for Gov.
ernor. Since General Gary has man
fully pronounced his views on the
subject of Independentism, we have no
doubt of the election of the nominee,
whoever he may be. General Gary's
speech last S-aleday at Edgefield has
mollified much - of the strong opposi
tion which then existed against him,
and his friends and foes alike respect
him more now than before his speech.

sights of that busy and beautiful city

noted of these sights is the foologicali
Garden, where an uncommonly large
and fine collection of animals may be
seen. Some of cur party showed a
decided preference for the monkey
