SATURDAY, JULY 25, 1874.
When ttio Ku Klux, around with
brand aud bludgeon,, hunted the Re
publicaus of the up country by night,
through swamps and unto death?when
our local authorities stood powerless in
tho presence of organized murder aud
?rson, und the Fcniociatie party ua?
?appealed to, to put a stop to such crimes,
thoy mocked nt our c .latnitioa and re
f'u.?ed U3 any relief. It was in those
dark, days that we appealed to the Na
tion fur help, which was granted, and
it was in this the winter of our discontcut
that we swore to stand by the llepubli
can parly and honesty. Now nu eleu
tion is near at ban-', and it becomes us
to look about ourselves. Republicans,
have you forgotten the opposition o'
Democrats to you? Their buruing-i,
their murderings aud their blaokcr
"It is often fiippautly said that al!
these ciimes aud horr. rs arc p issed, and
it is absurd to attempt to uainl.vn a
political party on the memory of them
Perhaps so. Rut would it not be insane
to trust a political party that could so
readily forget thorn ? It is not magnaui
nious, it is indeed hardly manly, to per
secutc men fur sins of which they have
really ?repented. Rut that is not re.pcn
tance, it is liypocvasy, which profoi-sci
to repent of sins and does not forsake
them, but embraces worse ones. Such
is the anomalous repentance displayed
by the Democratic party. Tt never
ccasrs to denuunee the Republican party
fur what it has dune or is Irying lo do,
but it straightway thunders with fiercer
denunciations of what the.party has not
done and is determined sha'l not be
dune. The moment Democrats forgot to
decry Republican policies thoybogin to
belie Republican motive!". For twenty
years they doomed it: sufficiently npprn
briotis lo call Republicans "Radical*;"
now they claim lo bo radicals themselves
and denounse Republicansns raseils.
If that part y feels it to be unkind to
remind it of its paFt career, how must it
feel to'he ro.nindcd^,ti>r i'8 present atti
tndc? Onco ils members profossed dis
tinct principles; all thfit coul Ibe objec ted
to them was that thoy professed the
worst principles extant. Rut bid as
they were, thoy were more becumin^
than this utter abjuration of all prtnei
pies. You may not like to employ, biu
you do not wholly despise, the zcahd
who consistently asserts that sarsaparil
la will euro every disease and so urges
it upon every patient; but wh-> can re
spect tho charlutati who petsiste itly cries
to the sjck."givc me your moneyaml you
may take what rcmelifS vou please?"
And now wc are about to clict. n?w
members to the Legislature. We
earnestly entreat tho p irty in this
County to send the best aud ablest Re
publicans we have. But wo entreat.
you not to send wire pullers and men
who have no other object iu view but
the emoluments of office. Thero is no
use in electing Democrats, or effete Re
publicaus. Give us the pure stuT, if
you do mean to rotract tho past. This
is the only way to t^o forward.
It is sometimes said tho mission of
the Republican party is accomplished,
If by that no more is moant than th it
the party has discharged every trust
heretofore committed to it, we admit it.
It has been thought when one was
found faithful over a fow things th it
was a good reason for trusting htm with
rnt)ro things. Ct:n you do better than
be instructed by such tin oxample ?
Especially ?dnce you must employ either
the party which you say has fulfilled
every trust, or employ that only other
party which has betrayed every trust.
The occasion for political effort has
noteuded. Other labors lie before you
lighter perhaps, but not light.
Ydu.have to see that what is done
fdiall not.be undine. Republicanism
offers you the best security against re
Then we say, on with the good work,
und never stop until the mission of the
Republican party shall hare been fully
achieved. The Orangcburg News
pledges for its help in the struggle.

of French cologne spirits, burnt sugar,
