The Democratic and Greenback State
1 central committees of Iowa have held a
secret session and decided to make a
fusion on the electoral ticket, the Green
backen taking six and the Democrats
seven of the candidates for 'electors.
i This action of the Democrats of Iowa
deserves defeat for them. There is no
. principle, in combining with the advo?
cates of Butlerism in order to divide a
State vote in the electoral college. For-1
tunately these fusions will not occur in
any State in which the Democrats have

lations to the Anderson Intelligencer
and the Laurens Herald on recent r^i
The Observer's gratification as to recent
nominations does not disturb us in the
least, nor are we surprised at its manifes?
tation. We can, however, accept those
congratulations without any pique, for
i the ? nomination with which we wera
connected resulted in the selection of a
candidate who will give us an honest and
industrious representative. The public

Intelligencer is satisfied with the

A dispatch from Augusta, Maine,
The Kennebec Journal to morrow will
say: "Much, feeling has been excited in
this community by an event of extraor?
dinary . character. In the well known
cemetery lot of the Stan wood famHy an
infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Blaine lies
2 buried. The child .died iu July, -1854,
.and; its resting place is marked bra
' beautiful memorial of marble, erected in
1855, on which the dates of birth and
death were plainly inscribed in raised
letters. About two weeks ago it was
discovered .that the date of the child's
birth had been carefully chiselled away.
It was quickly discovered and an inti?
mate friend of the Blaine family placed
er detective on the track of the perpetra?
tor who has not yet been discovered, but
it is believed a clue has been found in
- the fact that directly after the mutilation
. of th-j memorial a person whose name is
known had copies of the alleged record
sent to newspapers in various parts of |
.the country antagonistic to Blaine. The
motive for this act of vandalism is scarce?
ly apparent There is great indignation
among all classes of people over the
This desecration cannot be charged to
political motives, for it is an act of van?
dalism which could not possibly benefit
any opposing party to Mr. Blaine. In
view of the scandal recently published
against Mr. Blaine it is unfortunate that
the date referred to should have been
chiseled away, for it might be of impor?
tance to him to have the date authenti?
cated by the monument It could not be
of any value to his political opponents to
erase the date, while it might be desirable
for Mr. Blaine to nie it suppressed. It
will not -therefore, do for Mr. Blaine to
pose as a persecuted man in this way, for
it is hot in the line of human action for
his political enemies to have indulged in
such a dastardly action. Xt is more
probable that some party friend has done
it to arouse a sympathy for Mr. Blaine,
or for some other purpose.
Little by little the fearful sufferings of
the Greely exploring party are coming to
light, and shocking exposures of want
and the horrible consequences are coming
to light. One of the party, however,
private Heory, w**: shot by order of j
Lieutenant Greely for stealing the pro
. visions of the party, to which act he was
doubtless driven by the dire promptings
of hunger. It was, however, necessary
for the preservation of tbe party that
every resource should be husbanded, and
therefore any man who prevented this
economy was a public enemy, and his
death under the circumstances was a
.necessity. The saddest part of the tale,
however, is the fact that the survivors of
this fated party are conclusively proven
to have been guilty of cannibalism as
a means of subsisting during their terri?
ble experience, and as their companions
died the flesh was taken from their limbs
?and bodies for the living to maintain
life upon. There is nothing to show that
'there was any foul play in the party, but
the revolting fact remains that these
brave men sent out by our Government
in the interest of science were forced by
the dire extremities of famished nature
to live upon the flesh of their dead
friends and companions. It must have
been a fearful experience. Living far
beyond the haunts of men, with no ade?
quate means of sustaining life, yet hop?
ing to he rescued, they saw days and
weeks and weary months pass by with
no appearance of rescue, and no means
of supplying their scanty allowance of
provisions as they were being gradually
consumed. The end began to draw near,
and death from starvation began to re?
duce the party. Frugal of every possi?
bility of life, the very corpses of their
dead companions were sparingly dealt
out to the survivors, who lived on and
thought of home, hoping for rescue, and
yet knowing not which one must die next
to afford the means of life to the little
party which was struggling bravejy, yet
to all appearances, hopelessly to survive
until some human help might reach
them. The life was but a living death in
which the greatest agony watt the living.
The extremities of these men are revolt?
ing in the extreme, and yet who can
censure? The pity and sympathy of all
people goes out to the fated men who
have been called on to sacrifice so much
to the ends of science. From these facts
we are driven to inquire what benefit has
all this been ? It is no doubt gratifying
to scientists to get additional particulars
of the frozen North, and is a source of
pride to the intrepid commander who
can show the flag, as Greely did recently,
which has been further North than any
other flag, but all this empty show does
not compensate for the waste of life and
treasure which is involved in an Arctic
The canvass before the primary elec?
tion in Anderson County is about over,
and in our opinion has been conducted
entirely upon settled issues, to tbe exclu?
sion of more valuable topics of discussion
before the people. We do no", mean to
take sides between the candidates person
j ally in this or any article which has ap?
peared in tbe Intelligencer, for we have
j friends in the race 'who take different
! views of the University and Canal ap
! propriation. The influence of the Intel
| LigencEr. has been used to prevent the
j canvass from being taken up with these
I issues, but the candidates have Been fit
[largely to confine themselves to them.
We hope, however, that the voters of the
County will not be controlled by tbe
views of any man on these matters, but
select the fouif best men who are named
for the position. It must be remembered
that the men who represent Anderson
County will have to vote on-all questions
that come before the Legislature. They
might vote to suit the people on the
University and tbe Canal, but at the
same time vote contrary to the wishes of
the County on all other important mat?
ters. These are the questions that have,
been discussed. No one knows, however,
how they would vote upon a bill to pun?
ish the violation of agricultural contracts,
or a bill to complete the State House, or
to refund the State debt, or to improve
our methods of collecting taxes and
assessing property, or to improve our
road law, or to put County convicts to
work upon our roads and streets, or to
provide a system by which our taxes
could be collected in the Fall, thereby
saving the five per cent penalty and the
trouble of the Spring collection, or to
employ the convict labor of the State to
develope our material resources by work?
ing upon public enterprises, instead of
enriching private persons by hiring them
to individuals to compete with honest
labor, or upon propositions to raise the
salaries of our public officers, or to enact
a prohibition law, or to repeal tbe rail?
road law, or any other matter of equal
importance. Our people, therefore,
must see that it is folly to elect any man
because he will vote yes or no npon any
two measures. Our interests are too
great to be thus staked on single ques?
tions. The interests of our County de?
mand that we send the men who will
best represent us oh all questions, and it
is dwarfing the issue to endeavor to make
it turn on one or two measures?particu?
larly to let it rest on two measures which
are.definitely settled and cannot be al
. tered, no matter how our delegates vote.
Our people, we are sure, will not commit
such a mistake as to elect men simply on
these issues, but will select the four men
who can best represent them on all
questions. Such Representatives should
be honest, intelligent, progressive men.
We believe any of tbe candidates before
.the people will make faithful Represen
? tatives. Out only desire is that the se?
lection shall be made on the merits of
the men and not on any views that they
may have upon two settled' issues.
a GREENBACKElt talks.
The Fickens Stntinel, of last week,
1 "Mr. W. W. Russell, tbe greenback
leader in this section of the State, was
in town last Monday. In a conversation
with us he stated that he was for Blaine
for President, and in favor of tbe protec?
tion policy of the Republican party. He
expressed satisfaction at tbe nomination
of Col. Aiken for Congress from this
District, and said he bad written him a
letter of congratulation, in which be
promised him his support in the election.
He said they wouid nominate no candi?
date in opposition to Aiken, nor to any
! of tbe other Democratic candidate's for
Congress in the State, except in tbe 5th
I District, where a candidate would be put
? in opposition to Hemphill, but who the
! man would be he did not at this time
know, but he was certain it would not be
Cash. He informed us, however, that he
had never registered, and consequently,
could not vote for anyone. So Blaine
will be short one vote, at least, in South
Carolina, on account of the registration
This would put Mr. Russell in tbe
j Republican party, for as a Greenbacker
i he would have to support Gen. Butler.
Two years ago we pointed out the fact
that all independent movements in the
South tended to the Republican party,
and here we have the proof of it. We
take tbe liberty, however, of saying that
we have no idea that Mr. Russell is going
into the Republican party. He made a
grave mistake in 1882 by going into tbe
Greenback movement, and is reluctant to
admit it so soon, but he does not legiti?
mately belong to the Republicans. He
ought to join his old Democratic Club
and get back to first principles. After
he thinks the preseut canvass over care?
fully, we have no doubt that he will favor
the Democratic nominees in both Nation?
al and State politics. This is a good
time for him to correct his former error,
and we do not believe that he will so far
lose it as to commit a still greater error
now, Even the better class of indepen?
dent Republicans are supporting Cleve?
land instead of Blaine, and it is an op?
portune time for all of our citizens who
went with the Greenback party two years
ago to come back to us now.
A Charleston Lady Gives Her Life to
Save a Drowning Child.
A tragic occurrence at Sullivan's
Island yesterday afternoon illustrates
anew the heroism and self-sacrifice of
which woman is capable.
Between 2 and 3 o'clock in the after?
noon a number of cb" iren went in
bathing in front of Dr. k'inloch's house
on Sullivan's Island. The spot has
always been considered a dangerous one,
and it is said that several persons have
been drowned near tbe place. Miss Ella
Benjamin, a resident of Charleston, who
was boarding at Mrs. Walker's house,
went in to bathe with tbe children.
Julian Reid, a little son of Mr. Lough
ton R. Reid, was among the children
who were bathing, and the little fellow got
beyond his depth and was in imminent
danger of losing his life. Miss Benja?
min at once saw the peril, and being a
good swimmer went to his rescue. She
reached the drowning child, caught him
in her arms and held him above the
waves for nearly fifteen minutes until a
boat in which were two colored men
Tbe little boy was rescued by the col?
ored men, who also made an attempt to
rescue Miss Benjamin. The prolonged
efforts to save the life of the child, how?
ever, had evidently exhausted her
strength. She kept afloat until the little
boy was safe, and then sank. Every
effort was made to recover her body, but
it was fully twenty minutes after tbe
drowning when the search was successful.
At tbe expiration of tbat time Miss Ben?
jamin's boy floated to the surface and
was taken ashore. The body of the lady
will be brought to the city to day for in?
Tbe information given above was ob?
tained from a gentleman who reached
tbe city on the 9:30 p. m. trip of the
Sappho from the Island last night. The
distressing occurrence has cast a gloom
over the Island, which is not lessened by
tbe thought that, in Miss Benjamin, one
more woman has immortalized herself,
and so added yet another bright page to
the history of woman's love and devo?
tion.?News and Courier.
The Black District.
In regard to the policy of running a
Democratic candidate for Congress
against Smalls in the Black District,
which policy it remarks is advocated by
the Palmetlo Post and Kershaw Gazette,
and is reported to have been favored by
the general sentiment of the State Exec?
utive Committee at its meeting held in
July, the Georgetown Enquirer says:
"If the people of the various counties
composing the Black District are oppos?
ed to the nomination of a Democratic
candidate for Congress, we do not think
the committee has any right to force
them into the fight. We are inclined to
think that the vast preponderance of
opinion in this District is hostile to such
a course. An estimate of tbe voting
population of the Seventh District on
the basis of one voter to four and a hs.lf
inhabitants places the white vote at
7,000 and the colored vote at 31,000. In
the face of such tremendous odds as these
it is folly to speak of carrying the district
for the Democracy by any legitimate
means. If tbe plan cannot be shown to
offer a reasonable prospect of success it
would be worse than useless to involve
our people in the expense and trouble
which such a contest necessarily implies.
When the State was redistricted in 1882
it was universally conceded, as tbe name
of the district implies, tbat it would al
ways be an impregnable Republican
stronghold. Nothing has occurred since
that time to change the situation." The
Enquirer adds tbat theSumter Watchman
ana Southron takes the same view of the
matter, and tbat the Berkeley Gazette,
while occupying practically the Baioe
ground, suggests tbat the Democrats
should give their support to the most
respectable colored candidate, being
satisfied that such men as S. J. Lee, Tom
Hamilton and Bruce H. Williams could
bring out tbe entire white vote of the
Nashville, Tenn., August 14.?A
dispatch from Centerville confirms the
murder of the Mormons in Lewis county
by masked men last Sunday morning.
The raiding party numbered about forty.
Thirteen attacked the house of Martin
Condor, where a Mormon meeting was in
progress. Forcing the door, they were
encountered by Condor armed with a gun.
In an effort to disarm him one of the
raiders was struck with the gun unmask?
ing him, but he drew his pistol and shot
Conder in the bowels. Condor was shot
again by one of the party, with buckshot
and instantly killed. At the same time
another of the attacking party fired upon
a Mormon elder named Gibbs, who was
partly hidden bebind the wife of Condor,
killing Gibbs and severely wounding
Mrs. Condor in the thigh. The party
fired again upon a Mormon elder named
Berry, who was hiding behind a bed,
killing him instantly. Another Mormon
elder in tbe house, who ran out by the
back: door, was pursued by the attacking
party stationed outside. They fired on
him as he ran, but it is not known
whether or not he was killed. After
killing Berry, the masked men started
out of tbe bouse, and just as tbey got out,
J. R. Hudson fired and killed Dave Hin
son, one of the masked men. One of
the Hinson party stood over tbe body
and fired two loads of buckshot at Hud?
son, literally riddling him. Tbe Mor?
mons,, in- fear of another attack, did not
make a search until Monday, when they
found the Mormon who ran away from
Condor's dead. It is rumored tbat the
other missin.g elder ban been found dead.
The Mormon elders claim they have been
seat here direct from Utah to make con?
verts and establish churches.
? The largest cotton plantation in Al?
abama is said to be that of Messrs.
Roberts & Salter, near Union Springs.
These two young men have in the last
four years cleared over 900 acres of land
and dug 25 miles of ditches. Work on
the planation is regulated with military
precision, and the "hands" go to and
return from labor at tbe sound of a bell.
Tbe small army of laborers and their
families on the farm, numbering some
800 souls, are comfortably boused and
are apparently very contented. Each
family has its garden apart and raises
pigs, chickens, &c. Although cotton is
the principal crop, a large amount of
corn is raised for food. Actual experi?
ment shows that this crop can he raised
at a cost of 10 cents per bushel. It is
estimated tbat the yield this year will be
900 bales of cotton and 95,000 bushels of
corn, tbe former worth $40,500 and the
latter $21,250?total $91,750. The cost
of making these crops is put at $28,000,
which leave* a profit of $33,750. The
number of regular laborers employed is
392, and there are 159 mules aud horses
and 65 farm wagons.
? Professor Austin Pbelps, D. D.,
says that death is to all minds alike a
dread, appalling presence, from its first
conception to life's close. Say what men
may of it, all men fear it. He declares
tbat tbe most devout Christian and the
most sensuous skeptic recoil from it,
resist it, put it out of sight, struggle to
forget it to tbe last. "It is the one over?
whelming terror of every human life."
? R. B. Elliott, the notorious negro
politician who once disgraced this Stale
in Congress, died in New Orleans last
Sunday of malarial fever.
The Primarles in Oconee.
Walhalla, August 15.?The follow?
ing is the result of the primary election
held by the Democratic party io Oconee
County yesterday : For State Senator,
D. Biemann; for Representatives, A.
Lay and 0. M. Doyle; Clerk of Court,
James Seaborne; Probate Judge, Rich?
ard Lewis; School Commissioner, Isaac
Wickliffe; Treasurer, J. W. Holleman;
Auditor, J. J. Smith; Supervisor of
Registration, J. C. Mickler; Coroner,
H. A. H. Gibson; County Commission?
er, M. Nicholson. No candidate was
nominated for Sheriff, and two of the
County Commissioners not having re?
ceived a majority of the votes cast, a
second election will be held on the 2lst
inst. for those offices. The total vote
polled was 2,094, against 1,196 two years
ago. Of the 2,094 votes polled Mr. Bie?
mann, who was nominated for tbe Sen?
ate, received 1,086 votes.
Cleveland's Manly Stand.
A gentleman in New York City has
received tbe following letter from Gov.
Cleveland's private secretary, in answer
to one written on Saturday deprecating
private slander as a political means, and
notifying the Governor of threats to
publish statements charging immoralities
in early life upon Mr. Blaine, and ask?
ing his aid, in the interest of public de?
cency, to discountenance that kind of
warfare. The threatened publication
having been made at Chicago on Sunday,
the receiver has sent the letter of Col.
Lamont to the press. It is as follows:
"Albaity, N. Y., Aug. 12.
Dear Sir : In his absence from Al?
bany it is due that I should say in answer
to your letter that Gov. Cleveland has
most earnestly and persistently protested
against the publication of tbe matter to
which you refer. In respect to any pro?
position of the sort that has come to bis
knowledge, be has insisted that he and
his supporters might better be defeated
than succeed by attacking tbe private
life of tbe opposing candidates."
? The crops in Fairfield County have
been worked out in every section and are
now looking well and promising.
? The Virginia legislature has met in
extra session, and is engaged in arrang?
ing defects in tbe State debt and election
? Reports from Newberry County are
to tbe effect that upland corn is very
good, but that the bottom corn is not
doing so well.
? The democratic congressional con?
vention of the second Maryland district
has adjourned after taking 2,408 ballots
among three men.
? Logan and Hendricks accidentally
met in tbe dining room of tbe Fifth
Avenue hotel, New York, on Friday
morning, and had a pleasant conversa?
tion. Politics was not mentioned.
? A German medical journal has dis?
covered a means whereby life can be pro?
longed. It is based upon the experience
of Methuselah who did not marry until
he was one hundred and eighty-six years
old, and then lived to be nine hundred
? A rose bush at Antioch, Mich., has
bloomed this season without a bud. The
petals have developed in regular order
around the stalk, and tbe effect is singu?

grown from the stem like common leaves,
but form splendid crimson roses.
? The French Government commis?
sion which has been making experiments
similar to those of M. Pasteurin connec?
tion with finding a cure for hydrophobia
has reported that its investigations de?
cisively confirm the correctness of the
distinguished scientist's theory.
? The New York World has discov?
ered a cat in the meal tub in tbe fact
that Elgins, Blaine's manager, is partner
] with Beast Butler (the anti monopoly
3 candidate) in a land speculation in the
West, the two being defendants in a Buit
involving 800,000 acres of public territo?
? The Hampton Guardian says:
"We still report fine prospects for a good
i yield in all crops where they have been
well worked. Cotton is holding its fruit
and looks remarkably well. Our farmers
are busy gathering fodder, and prepara?
tions are being made to begin cotton
picking in a very short time."
? The Abbeville Medium says: "The
j Stock and Agricultural Association that
was formed here last week is a step in the
right direction, and we truly hope that it
will grow and prosper. A large county
like Abbeville, with its 45,000 inhabi?
tants, needs euch an association in order
that she may show what she is doing,
and in order to encourage her sturdy
farmers to renewed efforts."
? The convicts in the Kentucky
penitentiary made a desperate effort to
escape on Thursday, headed by a young
man of good family who is a convict.
He knocked down a guard with a bottle
and led a rush for the armory. A despe?
rate fight ensued, citizens being summon?
ed to aid the guards. Several guards
were wounded and a number of the
convicts escaped before tbe mutiny was

There is only 1 Revolutionary widow
from Mississippi, 1 in Massachusetts, 3
in South Carolina, 4 in Ohio and New
York, 5 in Maine and New Hampshire,
7 in Vermont and 8 in Pennsylvania.
? The Newberry Observer says: ' 'An
improvement in the feelings of business
men becomes more noticeable as the
season advances. The outlook for a good
fall trade was never better. The crop
news from all portions of our county ia
very flattering indeed. We are having
neither too much nor too little of sun?
shine and showers, and the crop yield
promises to be the most abundant we
have had in years."
? Governor Knott has just pardoned
a young man out of the Kentucky peni?
tentiary after ten years confinement. It
seems that the unfortunate convict was
innocent of the crime with which he was
charged, and he was released upon the
statements of the prosecuting witnesses.
After losing ten of the best years of his
life this man has practically no redress.
The State of Keutucky is not liable in
damages and the only remedy available
is to sue the prosecuting witnesses.
? Mr. Thornwoll McMaster, who has
returned from a business trip to Sumter,
states that he saw the Mason cotton
picker operated in a field where there
were a few open bolls, and the picker
passed by the unopen bolls and picked
the cotton from the open bolls with the
judgment of a human being. The Mason
gin, he believes, will also be a grand suc?
cess, and the sawing off of the bands and
arms of feeders of gins will soon be a
thing of the past.?Columbia Register.
? Pinkerton, the great deteciive, once
adopted a novel plan for establishing the
guilt of a suspected murderer. He was
employed to work up a case against
Johnson, a colored mau, in South Caro?
lina, who was supposed to have commit?
ted a very brutal murder. Johnson was
not arrested, but one morning when he
went to take bin plow to the field ho
found it spattered with blood. In the
field he found little pools of blood.
When he went back to the stable he saw
the bloody imprint of a human hand on
the door. Every hoe and rake had blood
on it. By nightfall the murderer was
paralyzed with fear and afraid to go to
bed. He believed that the spirit of his
victim was haunting him. The next day
be cut his throat from oar to ear, and his
suicide was regarded as rrnchnive pro< f
of his guilt. j

and that the Democratic outlook is hope?
ful. The campaign has not yet develop?
ed, and it is difficult to forecast the events
of the next two months. He mentioned
the fact, however, that several prominent
Republicans with whom he talked were
not sanguine as to Elaine's success. The
