We hope all ol our citir-cns will altead
the meeting in Anderson on Wednesday
night. It will be the only chanco they
will have to see and hear the candidates
before the primary election.
We are requested to announce that
there will be a meeting of the citizens of
Ceoterville Township at 3 o'clock, this
(Thursday) afternoon, at Hunters Spring,
to hear the candidates before the Prima
ry election. Every citizen of the vicini
ty is urged to be present, and ali of ibo
candidates are invited to address the
meeting.
The Democratic and Greeuhnck State
centr/d committees of Iowa have held a
Bocret session and decided to mako a
fusion on the electoral ticket, tho Green
backers tak:o?? six and the Democrats
seven of tho candidates for electors.
This action of tho Democrats of Iowa
deserves defeat for them. Thero is ;io
principle in combining with tho advo
cates of Butlerism in order to divide a
State vote in the electoral college. For
tunately these fusions will not occur in
any State in which the Domocrata have
any chance of victory?.
Tho Newberry Observer, of last week,
says:
The Observer extends hearty congratu
lations to the Anderson INTELLIGENCER
and the Laurens Herald on recent nomi
nations.
The Gluer vcr'o 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
the nomination with which we were
connected resulted in the selection of a
candidate who will give us an honest and
industrious representative. The public
interests have not suffered, and the
INTELLIGENCER is satisfied with the
result. We hope everybody else Is, and
that concern and harmony may reigD
once more.
A dispatch from Augusta, Maine,
says:
The Kenuebec Journal to sorrow will
say : "Much feeling bas been excited in
this community by an event of extraor
dinary character. Io the-well known
cemetery lot of the Stanwood family an
infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Blaine lies
buried. The child died in July, 1854,
. and its resting place is marked by a
beautiful memorial of marble, erected in
1865. on which the dates of birth and
death were plainly inscribed in raised
letters. About two weeks ago it was
discovered that tha 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
nrdetective on the track of the perpetra
tor who has hot yet been discovered, but
?it is believed a clue bas been fouud in.
the fact' that directly after the mutilation
. of the 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 cf vandalism is scarce
ly apparent. There is great indignation
among all classes of people over the
sacril igloos act."
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 ia unfortunate that
the date referred to should have been
Ciisejed away, for it might be of impor
tance to him to have the date authenti
cated by the monnaient. It could not be
of any value to his political opponents to
erase the date, While It might ba desirable
for Mr. Blaine to hs?e it suppressed. It
will not; therefore, do for Mr. Blaine to
pose as a persecuted mas io thia way, lor
lt Is hot in the line of haman action for
bis political enemies to have Indulged In
such a' dastardly action. It ls more
. probable that some party friend bas done
it to arouse a sympathy for Mr. Blaine,
or for some other purpose.
-:- ' . mm, , ' .
Littio by Hub tho fearful sufferings of |
the Greely exploring party are coming to
light, and shocking esposares of want
hud the horrible consequences are coming
to light. One of the party, however,
private Henty, waa shot by order of|
Lieutenant Greely for. stealing the pro
visions of tho patty, to which act he waa
doubtless driven by the dire promptings
of hunger. It was, ' however, necessary
lor the preservation of ibo 'party that
oyeryresource should be husbanded, and
therefore'.any ra?n who prevented this
economy waa a publie enemy, and his
death ". tinder tho circumstances waa a
necessity. The saddest part of the tale,
. however, br tho fact that the suivivora of
this fa'-?d party are conelurfvely proven
to hare -been"guilty of cannibalises aa
a meabaof eubalalleg during their terri
ble experience, ?pd as their ?rapa^loea
tiled the flees waa taken ?rmn their Umba
.arid bodies for the living to ata?cU??
Hfo upon. There la nothtag to show that
' thero vf ai? any foul pity in tho pariy, bot
tho: rovoHhtg fact retnainVthat
Wvo osen ?eot tvut by our Governt
the interest of?clenco Wero forc*d
dire estroKiiiiea of ?omLshsd asia*?
ve upon the flesH of thai*; d??d
friends aud companions. It must bave
been a fearful experience. Living far
beyond tbe haunts of men, with no ade
quate means of sustaining life, yet bop
ing to bo rescuod, they saw dsys 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. Tho end began to draw near,
and death from starvation began lo re
duce tho party. Frugal of every possi
bility life, tho very corpses of their
dead companions were sparingly dealt
out to the survivors, who lived on and
thought of home, boping for rescue, sud
yet knowing not which one must die next
to alford the means of life to tho little
party which was struggling bravely, yet
to all appearances, hopelessly io survive
until some human help might reach
them. The life was but a living death in
which the greatest agony was the living.
The extremities of these men are revolt
ing in tbe extnmo, and yet who can
censure? The pity and sympathy of all
people goes out to tho fated men who
have been called on to sacrifico 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
io scientists to get additional particulars
of tho frozen North, and is a aourco of
pride to tho intrepid commander who
can show the flag, as Oreoly did recently,
which liss been further North than any
other flag, but all this empty show does
not compensate for tho waste of life and
treasure which is involved in an Arctic
expedition.
The cn nv ns s before tho primary elec
tion in Anderson County is about over,
and in our opinion has been conducted
entirely upon settled issues, to the exclu
dion of more valuable topics of discussion
before the people. We do not mean to
take sides between tho candidates person
.d'y in thia or any article which bas ap
peared in the INTELLIGENCES, for we have
friends in the race who take di?crcut
views of tho University and Canal ap
propriation. Tbe influence of tho INTEL?
LIOENCEB has been used to prevent tho
canvass from being taken up with tbeso
issues, but tho candidates have seen fit
largely to confine themselves to them.
We hope, however, that tho voters of tho
County will not be controlled by the
views of any man on these mattem, but
1 select the four brat mon who aro named
for the position. It muatbe remembered
that the men who represent Anderson
County will have to vote on-all questions
?lint come before the legislature. They
mi "lu vote to suit the people on tbe
7 ,'eraity and tho Canal, but at the
ss.tr ot imo voto couti cry to tho wishes of
tho County on all other important mat?
tera. Thc sr are tbo questions that have
been discussed. No one knows, however,
now they would vote upon a bill to pun
ish tho violation of agricultural contracts,
ur a bill to c?mplete tbe State Uouao, or
to refund the State debt, or to improve
our mothods of collecting taxes and
assessing property, or to improve our
road law, or to put County convicts to
work upon our roads and Btreeto, or to
provide a system by which our taxes
could be collected in the Fall, thereby
saving the Ave per cent penalty and the
trouble of the Spring collection, or to
employ the convict labor of the otate 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 the 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 upon any
two measures. Our interests are too
great to be thus staked on single ques
tions. The interests of our CVmty de
mand that we send the men who will
best represent us on all questions, and it
is dwarfing tho 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 bow our delegates vote.
Our people, we are sure, will not commit
such a mistake aa to elect men simply on
these issues, but will select the four men
who can best represent them on all
questions. Snob Representatives should
he honest, intelligent, progressive men.
Wo believe any of the candidates before
the people will make faithful Repreaen
tatives. Out ouly desire is that tho se
lection shall be made on the merits of
the men atfd not on any views that they
may have upon two settled issues.
A ORKEN BACKER TAMM.
Tbc Pickens Sentinel, of lost week,
taya:
"Mr. W. W. Russell, the greenback
leader in this section of the State, waa
In town last Monday. In a conversation
with us he stated that he was for Blaine,
for President, and in favor of the protec
tion policy of the Republican party. He
expressed satisfaction at the nomination
of Col. Aiken for Congress from - this
District, and said he had written him a
letter of congratulation, in which he
?romtsed him ois support in the election,
fe said they would nominate no candi
date in opposition to Aiken, nor to any
of Ute other Democratic candidates for
Congress in the State, except in the 5th
District, where a caudidate would bo put
in opposition to Hemphlll, but who the
man would be ho did not at thia time
know, but ho was certain it would not bo
Dash. Be informed os, however, that he
had never registered, and consequently,
could not vote for anyone. So Blaine
will be abort one vote, at least, io South
Carolina, on account of the registration
law.?
'Thia would put Mr. Ruwcll in thc
Republican party, for as a G reen backer
ho would have to support Gen. Butler.
Two yean ago we pointed ont the fact
that all independent movements in the
Sooth tended to tho Republican party,
and here we have the proof of it. We
take tUoJiberty, however, of cay ing that
KO have no idea that Mr. RUMO!I ia going
into the Republican party. Ho made a
grave mistake In 1S82 by going into Ute
Greenback' movement, and ls reluctant to
admit it so soon, but ho dosa not legitl?
|?Bte!y betong to the Republicana. Re
ought to join nts old D?mocratie Club
and get. back to first principles. After
ho thinks ?he present canvass over care
fully, we b aye no doub 11 h at be will favor
ibo Democratic nominees io both Nation?;
ni and State politics. This is a good
time for bim to correct "bb former error.,
atad wo do cot believc that ho will so far
lose i?? j?Q commit a ?Mil greater error)
now. Even the better class of indepen
dent Republicana are supporting Cleve
land instead of Blaine, and it ia an op*
portune time for all of our citizeos who
went with th? Greenback parly two yea?
ago to come back lo us now.
A Charleston Lady Cites lier Life lo
Save a Drowning Child.
A tragic occurrence at Sullivan's
I.iland yesterday afternoon illustrates
anew the heroism and sclfaacriiice of
which woman is capable.
Between 2 and 3 o'clock in thc after
noon a number of children went in
bathing in front of Dr. Kinloch'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 the place. Miss Ella
Benjamin, a resident of Charleston, who
was boatditife, ut Mrs. Walker's house,
went in to bathe with the children.
Julian Reid, a little son of Mr. Lough
ton lt. Reid, waa among the children
who were bathing.and the little fellowgot
beyond his depth and was in imminent
danger of lofting his life. Miss Benja
min at once saw the peri), and beii:g a
good swimmer we?t lo his rescue. She
reached the drowning child, caught him
tn her arms and held him above the
waves for nearly fifteen minutes until a
boat in which wero two colored men
came up.
The little boy was rescued hy the col
ored men, who also made au 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 thon sank. Every
efTort was made to recover her body, but
it was fully twenty minutes after the
drowning wh n the search was successful.
At the ezpirk.ion of thal limo 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
terment.
The information given above was ob*
fained from a gentleman who reached
tho city on tho y-30 p. m. trip of tho
Sappho from Ike Island last night. Tho
distressing occurrence has cast a gloom
over the island, which is not lessened by
the thought that, in Miss Benjamin, one
moro woman has immortalized herself,
and so added yet another bright page to
tho history o? woman's love and devo
tion.-News and Courier.
The Black Matriel.
In regard to tho policy of running a
Democratic candidate for Congress
against SmallH in the Black District,
which policy it remarks is advocated by
the Palmetto 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, tho Georgetown Enquirer says :
"If the people of the various counties
composing tho Black District are oppos
ed to the nomination of a Democratic
candidate for Congress, we do not think
the committee bas any right to orce
them into the fight. We are inclined to
think that tho vaat preponderance of
opinion in thia District is hostile to such
a course. An estimate of the voting
population of tho Seventh District on
the basis of ono voter to four ard a half
inhabitants places the white voto at
7,000 and tho colored vote at 31,000. In
the face of auch tremendous odds as these
it is folly to ?peak of carrying the district
for the Democracy by any legitimate
moana. If the plan cannot be shown to
oder a reasonable prospect of success it
would be worse than useless to involve
our people in the expense and trouble
which auch a cooteat necessarily implies.
When the State was rediatricted in 1882
it was universally conceded, as the name
of tho district implies, that it would al
waya be an impregnable Republican
stronghold. Nothing bas occurred since
that time to change the situation." The
Enquirer adds that thc Sumter Watchman
and Southron takes the same view of the
matter, and that tho Berkeley Gazette,
while occupying practically the same
ground, suggests that the Democrats
should give their support to the most
respectante colored candidate, being
satisfied that such men as S. J. Leo, Tom
Hamilton and Bruce II. Williams could
bria;; out the entire white vote of the
district.
Hormon Massacre.
NASHVILLE, TENN., August 14.-A
dispatch from Ceuterville confirms the
mulder 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 iu
progress. Forcing the door, they were
encountered by Condor armed with a gun.
In an effort to disarm bim one of the
raiders was struck with the gun unmask
ing him, but be drew bis pistol and shot
Conder in the bowels. Condor was shot
again by ono of the party, with buckshot
and instantly killed. At the same time
another of tue attacking party fired upon
a Mormon elder named Gibbs, who waa
partly hidden behind the wife of Condor,
killing Gibba aud severely wounding
Mrs. Condor in tbe thigh. The party
fired again upon a Mormon elder named
! Berry, who was biding behind a bed.
killing bim instantly. Another Mormon
elder Tn the house, who ran out by the
back door, was pursued by the atiackiug
Carty stationed outside. They fired ou
im as he ran, but it is not known
whether or not he wau killed. After
killing Berry, the masked men started
out ot the house, and just aa they got out,
J. R. Hudson fired and killed Dave Hin
son, on? of the masked men. One of
the Hinc?n party stood over, the body
, and fired two loans of bucksbot at Hud
son, literally, riddling bim. Tho Mor
mons, in fear of another attack, did not
make a> ttcaroh until Monday, when they
found th? Mormon who ran away from
Condor'? dead. It is rumored that the
other mifwing elder baa been found dead.
The Mormon elders claim they have been
sent hero direct from Utah to make con
vert? and establish churches.
- The largest cotton plantation in Al
abama is said to be that of Messrs.
Bobette ? Salter, near Union ?oringo.
These two yoong men have In the last
four years cleared over 800 acres of land
and dug 25 miles of ditches.. Work on.
the planation is regulated with military
precision, and the "banda" go to and
return from labor at the sound of a bell.
The small army of laborers and their
families on the farm, numbering some
800 souls, are comfortably boused and
are apparently very contented. Each
family bas its garden apart and raises
pigs, chickens, ac. Although cotton is
the principal crop, a large amount, of
corn is raised for food. Actual experi
ment shows that thia crop eau be raised
at a coat of 10 cents per bushel. It ia
estimated that the yield thia year will be
900 balee of cotton and 95,000 bushels of
corn, the former worth $-10,500 and the'
?latter 321,260-total #91,760. Tho cost
of making these crops is put at $28,000,
which leave? a profit of $38,760. The
number of regular laborers employed ls
892, and there are 159 mules and horses
and 65 farm wagons.

Cleveland's Manly Stand.
A gentleman in New York City has
received the following letter from Gov.
Cleveland's private sacretary, in answer
to one written on Saturday deprecating
private slander as a political means, and
notifying tho 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 boH sent the letter of Co!.
Lamont to tho press. It is as follows :
"ALBANY, N. Y., Aug. 12.
DEAS Sin: In his absence from Al
bany it is duo that I should say in answer
to your letter that dov. Cleveland has
most earnestly and persistently protested
against thc publication of tho matter to
which you refer. In respect to any pro
position of the sort that has come to bia
knowledge, he has insisted that he aud
his supporters might better bo defeated
than sLC'czd by uttacking the private
lifo of .iic 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 thc State debt and election
laws.

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.
- Lognn and Hendricks accidentally
met iu tho dining room of the 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 tho experience
of Methuselah who did not marry until
bo was ono hundred and eighty-six years
old, and then lived to be nine hundred
and sixty-nine.
- A rose bush at Antioch, Mich., has
bloomed this season without a bud. The
petals have developed iu regular order
around the stalk, and the effect is singu
lar and beautiful. They seam to have
crown 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. Pasteur in connec
tion with finding a euro for hydrophobia
baa reported that its investigations de
cisively confirm the correr-* jess of the
distinguished scientist's theory.
- The New York World has discov
ered a cat in the meal tub in the fact
tb?*t Elgins, Blaine's manager, ?B partner
w.-.i Beast Butler (the anti monopoly
candidate) in a land speculation in the

involving 800,000 acres of public lerrito
?7
- The Hampton Guardian says :
"We still report fine prospects for a good
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 sh?rt time."
- The Abbeville Medium sayB : "The
Stock and Agricultural Association that
was formed here last week is a step in tbe
right direction, and we truly hopo that it
will grow and prosper. A large county
like Abbeville, with its 40,000 inhabi
tants, needs such an association in order
that abe may ebow what she is doing,
a,:d in order to encourage her sturdy
farmers *o renewed efforts."
- The convicta in tho 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

' - Th ? Newberry Observer says : "An
improvement in the foelinga of businest
men bec mies more noticeable as the
sesson advances. The outlook for a good
fall trade was never belter. The crop
news from all portions of our county u
very flattering indeed. We are having
neither too much nor loo little of sun
shine and showers, and the crop yield
promises to be the most abundant we
nave bad in years."
-- Governor Knott haa just pardoned
a young man ont of the Kentucky peni
tontiary after ten years confinement. Il
seems that the unfortunate couvict wai
innocent of the crime with which he wai
charged, and he waa released upon thc
?tat?mente of the prosecuting witnesses
After losing ten of the best years of bil
life this man has practically no redress
The State of Kentucky is not liable ic
damages and the only remedy available
is to soe the prosecuting witnesses.
- Mr. Thornwell McMaster, who hai
returned from a business trip to Sumter
?tates that he saw the Mason cottar
picker operated in a field where then
were a few open bolls, and the pieket
passed by the nnopen bolls and picked
the cotton from the open bolls with the
judgment of a human, being. The Masor
gin, he believes, will also bea grand roo
cess, and the sawing off of tho honda and
arms of feeders ot gins will soon be i
thing of tbe past-Columbia lUgispr. .
. -- Pinkerton, the great detective, on ct

- Senator M. C. liutler ha? recently !
returned from New York, where he had
been on the sub naval committee. He
think?, from what ho heard from promi
nent men in both parties North, that the
Gorman voto will be solid for Cleveland,
and that the Democratic outlook is hope
ful, 'i bo campaign bas not yet develop
ed, and it is difficult to forecast the events
of the next two months. Ho mentioned
the fact, however, tlmt several prominent
Republicana with whom he talked were
not sanguine as to blaine's success. Thc
sub committee meets again in a short
lime, and tho Senator will return, ile
