A Sad Death.
Yesterday (Monday) morning, be
tween 9 and 10 o'clock, Mr. Levi E.
Folk shot himself in the rear of his of
fice with a pistol. He never spoke af
ter he was shot, but lived until 10
o'clock last night. Mr. Folk had been
sick for two weeks past, but was nearly
well again, and appeared to be in good
spirits. It will never be known posi
tively whether the shot was accidental
or intentional. We are clearly of the
opinion that it was an accident. A few
weeks ago, in speaking to Dr. Gilder,
his step-son, lie said that when he (Dr.
G.) should move into his new house he
would leave him without any weapon
of any kind on the premises; and he
spoke of buying a pistol to keep in the
house. Last week he went into Mr.
Boozer's store to look at a pistol, and
said he would take it Monday morning,
giving the same reason for wanting a
pistol that he had stated to Dr. Gilder.
Monday he got the pistol, and in a lit
tle while the shot was heard. When
found he was sitting down with the pis
tol in his hand on his lap, and the blood
was oozing from a wound in his fore
head above his right eye. There were
no powder marks about the wound. It
is very probable that he was examining
the pistol, it being a new purchase. and
being awkward with his one hand it
went off accidentally.
The death of Mr. Folk is a serious
loss to this community, and to his im
mediate family and friends inexpressi
bly sad. He was universally liked and
respected. He had been Auditor for
this County since June, 1877, and dis
charged the duties of the office with
marked care and ability and with per
fect satisfaction. Mr. Folk was born in
Newberry County, and was fifty
years of age. At the breaking out of
the war he was living in Georgia; he
enlisted in a Georgia Regiment and re
mained in service until he lost his arm
at the battle of Spottsylvania, May 12,
Mr. Folk was twice married. He
leaves by his first wife three sons, all
grown, Dr. J. Wm. Folk, Charley and
Christian; and by his second, who sur
vives him, four boys, all small. His
family have the sincere sympathies of
the community in their sore affliction.
The funeral services will be held this
(Tuesday) afternoon at half past 4
'clock, in the Methodist Church; the
emains will 'be buried at Rosemnon t
emetery at 5 o'clock.
The Newberry Lutheran Conference
Held its session in the Lutheran
hurch in town Friday and Saturday.
Several subjects of practical interest to
h Church were discussed. The most
nteresting subject was, whether the
resent style of preaching the gospel is
he most effectual. Rev. Hawkins open
d the discussion-we did not hear his
~tddress. Rev. Bowles, who followed,
nsisted on plain, simple and practical
ermons. He said that ministers were
oo solicitous to please their congrega
~ions; were too much afraid of offend
ing the people. He also opposed writ
Rev. J. A. Sligh said that when a
ninister made it his first object to please
his congregation, and begins to consult
bout the best policy he becomes inef
ective. A minister is dependent, to
ome extent, on the people for his liv
ing; but he should be more mindful of
his account to God than to his congre
ation-he should have more regard for
the souls of men than for their good
pinion. One objection to the common
style of ..reaching is that there is too
uch effort at the beautiful, the logical
nd the sublime. This sort of preach
ing pleases, but it does not strike or
wound. He didn't think a minister
bould confine himself either to written
r to extempore sermons.
Rev. R. A. Pair, of the Presbyterian
Church, was called on and took part in
Rev. J. D. Shirey preached the Sun
day morning sermon to a large congre
gaton. In the afternoon Rev. H. S.
Wingard delivered an address on the
ubject of Sunday Schools.
Coroner E. C. Longshore held an in
quest Wednesday pye r, egro child
three days old that died from an over
dose of morphine administered by its
mother, Hester Harris, who lives in
town. Testimony was taken, and the
examining physician, Dr. gilder, testi
fied that death was caused by an over
dose of laudanaim. The mother ac
knowledged that she gave it laudanum,
but only a drop, and to keep it quiet, as
it was sicik and fretful. The verdict of
the Coroner's Jury was, that the child
came to its death by an overdose of
ladanumn administered by its mother,
Hester Harris, thriough ignorance.
This was the woman's fifth child, and
none has eyer lived beyond seven
months. She has never been *ar.ried.

The Democratic County Convention.
This body met in the Court House
the 26th ultimo to elect delegates to the
State Convention. The session was
characterized by the utmost harmony
and by a unity of feeling and action that
presages a successful and satisfactory
campaign. In the selection of a
COUNTY EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
the Convention displayed good judg
ment. This Committee, taken as a
whole, is well qualified for the arduous
and responsible duties that will devolve
upon it. Its Chairman, Mr. Jno. C.
Wilson, is a hard worker, is level-head
ed, conservative and prompt; and he
will find a ready and able support in the
We will not let this occasion pass
without a word of appreciation of the
former County Chairman, Mr. J. F. J.
Caldwell. It is expressing the univer
sal sentiment of the Democratic party
of this County when we say, that during
his term of office he discharged his du
ties with marked ability, with unselfish
and unpartisan zeal and with perfect
The Convention made a mistake in
the selection of
OFFICERS OF THE CONVENTION;
we don't say it didn't select good oiii
cers, for Mr. Hardy makes a first-rate
President-he is well posted oa parlia
mentary rules, is fair, prompt and pa
tient, and no better selection could have
been made. Dr. McIntosh, the Vice
President, is one of the best presiding
officers we have ever seen; and Dr.
Folk, the Assistant Secretary, is labori
ous and pains-taking. The mistake
consists in electing these officers for
two years. The Constitution says: "The
County Convention shall not be a per
manent body ;" it further says, "Each
Convention shall elect its own officers,
which shall be a President, a Vice
President and an Assistant Secretary."
The election of these officers for two
years was an oversight, which can be
remedied at the adjourned meeting.
The only permanent oflicers are bhe Ex
ecutive Committee, the Secretary and
the Treasurer. The Convention ne
glected to elect a Treasurer; but this
omission can be supplied when it meets
again. The resolution in regard to the
expresses the sentiment of this County,
and was properly adopted by a unani
mous vote. A strong and determined
effort has been made by certain sections
of the State to force the nomination of
State officers at the June Convention,
which meets to-day, (Tuesday); but we
think the opposition will be strong
enough to prevent such an unwise step
-unwise, because it would precipitate
upon the people a long can.vass, that
would interfere very seriously with
their material prosperity. The State
needs repose; the business interests of
the people, and especially of the farm
ers, require it. It will be impossible to
defer the campaign after the nomina
tion of State officers; and, therefore,
these nominations should be deferred to
as late a period as is consistent with
safety. "A short, sharp and decisive
campaign" is best, anyway.
We think, however, that the Conven
tion made a mistake in not sending del
egates to the
CONGRESSIONAL AND THE JUDICIAL CON
not because these nominations should
e made in June, for we agree with the
Convention that they should be deferred
till after the State nominations. But
the Convention should have provided'
for every emergency. Several other
Counties in this District send delegates;
Anderson sends a delegation pledged
solidly to Orr; Oconee and Pickens
send uninstructed and divided dele
gations; Richland sends an uninstruct
ed and uncertain delegation. Laurens,
Abbeville and Lexington send solid
Aiken delegations. Newberry ought to
have done the same, with instructions
to postpone the nomination if possible,
but if not, then to cast the vote of the
County for Aik.en. We don't think a
nomination will be made to-day ; but it
is always better to be on the safe side.
If the opponents of Aiken should find
themselves in the majority to-day they
might force the nomination. .A reso
ENDORSING CONGRESSMAN AIKEN,
and recommending his renomination,
caused some debate. A motion was
made to table the resolution; but it was
lost by an overwhelming vote. The
view held by those who opposed the
resolution was that it wvas out of place;
that it did not come within the line of
business for which the Convention had
assebled. This view of the case, we
think, was entertained by a large pro
portion of the Convention; it was cer
tainly entertained by some of Col. Ai
ken's 'warmest admirers and supporters.
But the resolution having been offered
to have tabled it would have given to
the outside pub4lic thje impression that
Newberry County was opposed to Col.
Aiken's re-election, which is by no
means the case. To prevent such an
inpression going abroad many dele
gates voted for the resolution who re=
garded it as out of place and ill-timed.
The County Constitution says the Con
vention "shall be called together for a
specie purpose or purposes, which shall
be stated in the call, but it may, with
ut previous notie, at upon any mat
ter,.of detail or any unforeseen exigen
cy." There was nothing in the call
which authorized such a resolution; it
was not a matter of detail, and it was
not a matter of unforeseen exigency; it
ight ~gave properly coe uer the
lact h~.~t1 if' *1u~ flrrn~pntInn had sent
having been introluced, however nn- 0F
wisely, it became necessary, in justice
to Col. Aiken, to adopt it-which was da
done by a vote almost unanimous. The n
practice of Conventions lauding public an
officers is a bad one-it has a deniwral- M
izing tendency, and is calculated to ra;
make an officer more careful of gaining ph
popularity than of doing his duty. The ini
line of duty is not always the line of hii
popularity, and herein lies the danger.
A representative who does the best he Lu
can only does his duty, and the con
sciousness or having done this, added to
the emoluments of ofice, is a sufliient ij
recompense. These remarks are not
made with :ny special reference to Col. 0
Aiken. Those who have read the HER
ALD know that it has been a consistent
supporter of Col. Aiken "tbrough thick Oi
and thin"; that it has time and again
commended his course in Congress, and
advocated his re-election. In common
with, we believe, nine-tenths of the vo
ters of New berry County we hope to see
Col. Aiken renominated and re-elected;
but we are opposed to indiscriminate
and unnecessary laudation by County
Conventions of any public officer- as
whether he he Col. Aiken or Senator 1
Hampton, or any other man.

Mr. Thos. W. Blease, who lived in
Edgefield County, was shot and killed Pr
by Andrew I. Gardner yesterday (Mon- e
day) morning, the weapon used being
a double-barrel shot-gun. The shoot- V
ing occurred in Mr. Blease's store
and was the result of a personal
difficulty. Gardner was Mr. B.'s
son-in-law, having married his daugh
ter last January. Gardner formerly
lived in this County, and acted for a Th

thinking he had gone to the field. As
he entered Gardner fired a load of buck- im
