CONVEN~TION, OR PRIA tY ?
One of oi'r correspondents has
expressed t'.e desire to know why
the congressmen should not be
nominated by Primary Election,
if the Primary Election is the best
mode of nominating county officers.
It would be hard to explain why.
Personally, we dislike the Primary
Election; or, rather, we dislike the
canvass that immediately precedes
It. It is a very heavy drain upon
the political enthusiasm of the
country, and we believe that it pro
vokes ill-feeling between neighbors.
and causes private enmities that
will last a life-time. In our county
the canvass has been altogether too
long, and it has not been properly
managed-in truth, it has not been
managed at all.
While we dislike the Primary
Election as a mode of making nom
Inations, we cannot close our eyes to
the truth that it is more demo
cratie than the nominating con
vention, and gives more general
satisfaction. We cannot, therefore,
oppose it, And we do not hesitate
'to say, that if' the Primary Election
is the best thing for county purpo.
ses, it is also best for the purpose
of making congressional nomina
tions. Recent dead-locks in con
gressional nominating conventions
seem to indicate that the people
will have to discard the convention
and resort'- to something else, if
they want the nomiajees to repro.
sent their choice. By holding the
Primary -Elections in the various
counties composing a Congression
al District, on the same day, t he
oongressman could bd nominated
without additional trouble.
Artemus \iard said, with quaint
drollery, "It would have been ten
dollars in Jeff Davis's pocket if he
had never been born." Just so.
And it would have been ten dollars
apiece in the pockets of several of
our fellow citizens if they had
never entered the primary canvass.
Mr. W. W. Russell, the leader of
the Greenbackers in the upper partI
of the St'ate, is pleased withAiken's I
nomination and will support him.

On the day of his election as
3overnor of New York, Grover
Dleveland wrote a private letter to
als brother, in which he used this
"The thought that has troubled
ne is, Can I well perform my c:uties,
md in such a manner as to do some
rood to the people of the State ? I
will tell you, first of all others, the
policy that I intend to adopt, and
that is to make the matter a busi
aess engagement between the pec.
ple of the State and myself, in
which the obligation on my side is
to perform the duties assigned me
with an eye single to the interest
of my employers."
That means personal and official
integrity; and it means that public
office is a public trust. The letter
was not intended for the public,
and it reveals somewhat of the pri
vate character of the man who
While James G. Blaine held the
important and very influential po
sition of Speaker of the National
House of Representatives, he lent
his official aid to certain legislation
in favor of a railroad in Arkansas.
He afterwards wrote private letters
to certain men connected with the
road in a business way; called to
their attention the service that
he had done them; - and told
them that, if they would allow
him to participate in the new rail.
road enterprise, he felt that he
would not prove a dead-head, as he
"saw various channels in which he
could be useful."
That means personal dishonor
and official corruption; it means that
public office is to be bartered and
sold for private gain. It means,
in the language of Carl Schurz,
"official power offering itselt for
prostitution to make money." These
letters, which were not intended for
the public, reveal somewhat of the
inner life of "that man from
WHAT THEY ARE MAKING .
Each of the Railroads in this
State has, in common with the bus
iness people, felt the exceeding
tightness of the times. A compari
son of the earnings of the different
roads for June '83 and June '84,
has been made with the fol!owing
result : Of the seventeen roads,
ouly four show a trifling gain; one,
the Chester and Lenoir, of $1,750,
while the Cheraw and Darlington
show the small difference of $7.
The o:her thirteen each have fallen
short. Our own road, the C. & G,
show the considerable shortage of
$2,558. The aggregate increase in
the whole State is $2,503, and the
decrease $28,994. This is a melan
choly rendering. We summarize
this from that admirable paper, the
Newcs 4- Courier. '1 hose of our read
ers who are unfamiliar with the
names of these roads are informed
that they are the A tlanta and Char
lotte Air Line, the Ashville and
Spartanburg, the Augusta and
Knoxville, the Central of South
Carolina, the Charleston and Sav

Normal I astitate, which began its
interesting work on the 15th uit.,

results were satisfying. There were
over 200 regular attendants, who
gave good heed to the 200 lessons
embraoed in the 100 hours of in

Mr. E. Giardeau Chandler, stood
the test of a two days' rigid exami

The Indianapolis Seattinel is in
hot water. It published an attack
upon Blaine, in which it assailed
the honor and good name of his

kept in hot water. It is t-ad enough
to nose about and unearth private
scandals that affet the candidate
exclusively, but to invhde his home
and seek to blight the fair name of
his wife is simply infamous.
Good friend, before you fall out

and proprietor of the horry Pro

Scarborough as assistant editor.
Judging from his sensible saluta

mise of a useful career in the ranks
of journalism. We wish we had
space to quote in full his article,
which glistens with brilliant gems
of truth and logic. In it he says:
"Journalistic life is an attractive
oue to many ; and while we may
covet its honors and distinctions,
we dread its burdens. Many have
arioen to fame and renown through
this avenue of life, while many a
bright intellect has been eclipsed
in the effort to acquire distinction
as a 'Knight of the Pen."' May

than a passing thrill of delight to

have climbed over almost insur

and hearty support. It is no little
work to build up a daily paper.
The Register is a better paper now
than it has ever been, and we hope

CARD OF THANKS.
I return my thanks to the citizens
of my native County for the generous
support given my candidacy for Clerk
of Court. Especially do I thank, and
feel grateful to, the good ladies of the
County for the deep interest they were
so .kind as to manifest in the suc
cess of one whose privilege it has
been to serve them in a different
field of lambor for over a quarter of
a century; and I beg to assure all
my fellow citizens of Ne wberry Coun

highest ambition, by faithful d'scharge
of duty,to endeavor to deserve the con
tidenice reposed in me by my niomina
tion to the responsible position of
Clerk of Court. My Fellow Citizens,
grateful to you all for the honor con
ferred, it shalt be my highest ambition

A RELIGIOUS REIVVAL.
BnIOOKSVILLE, MISS., Aug. 12, 84
Messrs. Editors :This little town
to-day is as quiet as possible after
the close of the late revival meet
ing in the Baptist Church, which
was one of uncommon interest, as
it exceeded all previous ones in the
depth of feeling it excited in the
breasts of all kinds of people. Mr.
Grey, a young Baptist preacher
not known here before, preached
every sermon during the meeting of
two weeks, two sermons each day,
and moved the hearts and con
sciences of the people as they were
never moved before, perhaps ; and
yet his manner was quiet though
earnebt, not denunciatory but plead
ig and persuasive, never once
holding forth the terrors of the law
and future punishment, His sue
cess was most gratifying, as he held
the large congregations, composed
of all ages and denominations al
most suspended by his words.
Trwenty-three persons were united
to the church, some by letter and
restoration and eleven by baptism.
The rite was administered in the
church last night before a very
large audience, after an earnest and
solemn charge to the converts. The
music and singing and the selec
tions were quite good.
The houses of business were
closed during the hours of service
every day during the second week
of the meeting.
On the first Sunday in this month
a colored Methodist Bishop, Lane,
was invited to preach in the Metho
dist Church by the pastor at 5
o'clock, p. m. T1he church was filled
mostly with the white people, but
the colored people had a limited
space allotted to them. The preach
er, in. som.ue preliminary remarks,
modestly deprecated criticism upon
the grounds of the want of early
education and training of himself
as well as the rest of his race, and
said he did not presume to be able
to edify the white people. His text
was Phil. iii: 8. He used good lan
guage and was even eloquent to
wards the last of his sermon. The
connection, or logical sequence I
suppose 1 might call it, was very
well preserved throughout his ser
There has been no rain here for
nearly two weeks now, and the far

The second Primary Election
will be held on the second day of
September. After that day, we hope
that there will be no kickers, mug
wumps, no political sore-heads,
and, above all, no independents in
Newberry County. Let us forget
personal preferences and private dis
agreements, and roll up a handsome
majority for the nominees. It was
impossible to nominate all the can
didates, however anxious we may
have been to vote for all.
A FREMONT REPUBLICAN -Henry
C. Bowen, proprietor of the New
York 1ndependent, writes to Gov.
Cleveland as follows-: "I have been
a Republican since the Fremont
campaign of 1856, and from that
day have always voted with my
party. Had the late Republican
convention at Chicago been wiser
in its action I should have remained
steadfast in the party. But it has
gone astray and I cannot foliow in
its path. I most sincerely rejoice
in your nomination, and assure you
that I shall do what I can with
voice and pen to secure your elec
tion, as I have your nomination."
