An exchange remarks that ''whenever
Ihe country is more than williag to give
the Democrat* coitfpletc control of the
iTovefnment. they sacrifice^ve^thingby
personal and factional s^uabbies;'.^ We
regret that the above is. true.... No-long
er than a week or tvfo ago, the AT?tr* and

National Conveutfoi?jy putting in their
"tariff for revenue^only'Vj^lahk; there
would be a b?ft"from fiie Democrat
ic party in 1884 sufficient to defeat its
nominees. This is altogether wrong.
The minority must submit to the major
ity, or our party organization is worth
jess. While we firmly mid conscienti
ously believe that the best policy for the
Democratic party to. pursue in the next
Presidential campaign is lo hold the
tariff question io abeyance until after
the election and make the fight upon the
issue of civil service reform, we shall not
bolt if the tarill is made the issue. We
want to see a Democrat in the White
House, and beside this all other desires
jade into insignificance. We are willing
to subordinate all of our views to this
One grand and glorious result. We-waut

Why then should there be any bolt from

enemy, and theu the needed reforms can

Xo Govoriirucut. Telegraph for Us.
A report comes nVm Washington that
a bill will be introduced in the nexl Con
gress authorizing the Government to is
sue $100,000,000 of twenty year three
per cent, bonds to purchase the telegraph
plants of the country. This will be only
another turn in the sorcw of centralisa

Ci^^en^jjaifBt'iy- but effectually stolen
fromMhem by the Republican party, but,
. as the next House, is Democratic, we
hope the scheme will be nipped in the
bud, Iff h ii movement is successful, the
i>\\t step-will l>e to gobble-the railroads^
and possibly 'fife newspapers, and then
where arc the1 liberties of the people.
/--With the mails, the telegraph and the
railroad8 in' the. hands of the Govern
ment, we would be completely in the
power of a set of unscrupulous and de
signing politicians who may chance to
be fn authority.- Those of us who know
the uses to which the posiofnee aud
revenue departments of the Government
ip the South have been put during the
last twenty years by the Radical party '
can't look with any degree of serenity
upon the proposition to put the tele
graph Hhe3 of the. country under their
control, to be prostituted for political
purposes. The telegraph companies are
huge corporations, wielding immense
>litical and financial power, but they are
lore tolerabl^and less dangerous to the
institutions of the country than a
political telegraph monopoly manipulat
ed by the Radical politicians would be.
We, therefore, trust that the Democrats
in Congress will promptly squelch this
pet scheme of the Radicals.
The Immigrant Question.
i Considering tho great advantages of
< \he South in good soil, mild climate,
large resources, and fair educational
facilities, it is a matter of surprise lo
many that we arc favored with so small
a sprinkling of foreign immigration. To
our mind, the reasons are not far to find.
In the first place, mauy of our farmers
prefer to make out with inferior labor
than to pay stood prices for better work.
Then again, the white immigrants want
more comfortable houses, better fare and
[ social comforts which many arc slow in
giving. But, still more, foreign immi
grants, in the face of these facts, arc no
disposed to compote against negro labor.
We must improve in these respects if we
wish to soe tho tide of immigration set
ting in Southward, which is far mors im
portant, both iu the political and agricul
tural espect, than, many seem to have any
conception of. D' the people of the
South would awake to their true inter
ests in this matter, and have agents in
Europe to bring the immigrants directly
to Southern ports, we would get a better
class of people, and the future prospects
of our section would be very much
The Cotton Thx.
The cotton tax levied by the United
States government many years a^o by
which millions of dollars were unjustly
wrenched from the Southern States, has
been declared by the Supreme Court to
be unconstitutional, and yet not one dol
lar of the stolen money h.is been restor
ed. The portion 3tolen from South
Carolina alone was $4,172,420. The
South arks no favors. All she wants is
t the verdict of the Court should be
?.yed and the money restored that was
taken ?Vay. If this simple act of justice
ja done, slie will put herself on her feet
with her own money.

Road* vs. Railroad*.
Gen. Edward MeCnidy has written a
letter to Senator, Butler making some
Valuable suggestions on the subject of
public roads. He thinks 'that our people
make a mistake In trying to build mils
roads which they cannot afford and1
which are only mads to'be gobbled up by
capitalists. He shows by statistics of
New England and the .Western States
ihAt no railroad can be operated with
profit in a section with lessthan S5? in?
habitants U* a tntte of road. In South
Carolina statistics show that instead of
830 to.the mile wo have scarcely 553?
Weare;able, according, to the; calcula-.
tion, to'ruu-wHh profit only 1,171 miles
of railway, instead of which we are now
running 1,500. with a prospect of 300
more soon which aie in process of con
struction. He thinks it would be far
more profitable to put our mouey ou the
public roads, which concern everybody,
than on the railroads that effec t only-the
few, He says i
$itC Poor's Manual for 1882, the cost
of constructing a niile-<?f railroad is put
at" $25.000. Governor Bonliam, in hia.
last reports, puts the cost per mile in this
State at $1.6.335.20. I havo made a
calculation upon the figures giyen by\
JudiieT-awreuce in his letter published
by you on the 26th July, and fiud that
the splendid turnpike roads in Ohio cost
on an average $2,136 per mile. Now
can't you convince our people tliafc for
I the preseut at least it will be wiser, rest
j ing contented with the railroads they
have, to build twelve-miles of first-class
turnpike than one of railroads. Thimc
what a change in our condition such
roads would make ? What s saving it
would cause in horses and vehicles?
?? ? ? Then again, let us remember
that our capital and work expended on
our couutry roads are in no danger of
being taken from is; that there is no
danger that our roads will be managed
by directors of foreign corporations and
diverted from' the purposes for which
they will be built as our railroads are;
that when built they will ne open to all
to travel upon them, and uot confined to
the monopoly of a single corporation;
that they will permeate our whole State,
and not benefit only a few who happen
to be in the immediate neighborhood of
depot*. As you have well said, the
ereat preseut point is to have a com
mencement. Why not allow our coun
ties by vote to issue bonds to build turn
pikes, as the State has allowed them to
do in several instances for railroads?
One or two counties building first-class
turnpikes would soon demonstrate that
good roads are quite as beneficial to our
people as railroads, and the rest of the
State would follow as they did about the
! Fence law; The money wo have saved
In doing away with fences ir. this State
would of itself go a great way to put our
roads hi first-class order."
We think Gen., McCrady talks very
sensibly on this public road question,
and his views deserve the serious con
sideration of-the publm. We hardly
realize what an advantage to trade and
travel, and what a saving in rolling stock
good turnpike roads through the country
would be. The benefits of a little money
spent in this direction would be seen and
Tho Birth of I.ether.
The tenth of November will be the
four hundredth anniversary of the birth
of Martin Luther. The event will be
commemorated in. all parts of Europe
and by hundreds of thousands of Luth

representatives of tliat government at
foreign courts that they should see that
the day is fitly celebrated joy the Luth

the United States the aniversary will be
observed with unusual interest by ap
propriate exercises in every Lutheran
Church. In all the leading cities, as
well as in many of the rural districts,
the Sunday Schools will indulge in pro
per festivities for the chindren, and the
grown people will be entertained by dis
courses relating to the life and works of
Luther, his infiueace upon the religious
thought of the age and the progress of
the Lutheran Church. In some places
the anniversary is being celebrated by
the erection of churches and chapels with
money raised and laid aside especially
as a commemorative fund. We sup

Will the Register Do It?
The Columbia Register quotes from
the St. Louis Republican an attack upon
Hon. Samuel J. Randall and commends
it to Messers. Tdlman and Dibble as well
as to the Chronicle, which is infcrential
ly accused of not being a Democratic
journal according to the Georgia stan
dard, whatever that may mean". Now.
we notice that none of the quasi free-trade
papers, like the Register, and none of
the papers opposing Mr. Rondall's candi
dacy publish that gentleman's own dec
laration of principles on the tariff, as
embodied in his speech in the House of
Representatives and in the platform of
the Pennsylvania Democracy. Mr.
Randall is uot a protectionist for the sake
of protection, but he does favor a tariff
for revenue with incidental protection to
American labor, iust as the Democracy
of North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Indi
ana and many other States do, and iust
as the National Democracy of the Union
will at their next convention. Mr. Ran
dal., Mr. Tillman, Mr. Dibble, the
Chronicle, and the great majority of the
Democrats of this Republic stand" on the
subject of the tariff where the soundest
Democrats have stood for forty years.
Let the Register publish Mr. Randall's
speech and the plank in the Pennsylva
nia platform made by him. Let the
readers of that paper have an opportu
nity of judging between the Democracy
of Mr. Randall and those who assail him
directly and by proxy. The Chroniele
is not afraid of the issue, now or to come.
We dare say that Mr. Tillmau aud Mr.
Dibble tire equally well prepared to face
the music. In a recent interview. Me.
Ilendricks, who is esteemed a very
stauuch Democrat, said "there must be
a tariff until the dehtjwas extinguished,
and probably afterwards for current rev
enue, aud that tariff should be wisely
adjusted to protect home industry with
out fosteriug monopolies, and to afford
good return fbt labor without unequal
taxation " In other words, Mr. Ilen
dricks simply repeated, in a condensed
form the doctrine of the Pennsylvania
Democracy as laid down by Mr. Randall
himself. If the Democracy of this Un
ion propose to array themselves against
the announced policy of Ohio. Penusyl
I vania, Virginia. North Carolina aud the
undoubted policy of Indiana, New Jer
sey, Connecticut and New York, no
prophet need come from the dead to
predict that overwhelming disaster will
befall them and their candidates. But,
as an antidote to the assumptions of oth
er men, who assail Mr. Randall, let that
gentleman be heard in his own defense,
and let the record of his true Democracy,
which is that from Washington to Polk,
he. placed alougside the fabrications of
his accusers. Many papers attacking
Mr. Randall have not dared to publish
what he himself has said on the subject
of the tariff. They know too well that
their guns would be spiked. We shall
see whether the Register has the courage
of its conscience as well as of its opin
ions.?Augusta Chroniele and Constitu

cum.-Mr. H. C. ERMINGER of the firm
of Erminger & Goldsmith, large Candy
manufacturers Atlanta Ga., cheerfully and
gratefully gives us the following wonderful
facts: "I reached Westminister August the
19th? that night 1 was seized with a violent
attack of Cholera Morbus.1 Fifteen actions
on the bowels occurred in less than four
hours. The pains kept on increasing and
the actions on my bowels were more fre
3uent. The usual remedies, Paregoric,
araaica Ginger, &c, were promptly, vigor
ously and persistently used, but without
avail. The symptoms were growing worse
and these remedies were more than useless.
Bv a lucky and happy thought NORMAN'S
NEU TRALIZING CORDIAL was procur
ed and one dose, in a few minutes, brought
marked relief and four or five more effected
a complete cure. Before 1 began the use of
this medicine, I was In the greatest agony,
my bowels unchecked, and I was so com
pletely exhaused as scarcely to be able to
speak: above a whisper. Tne relief was so
sudden and so complete, that I could hardly
realize it, and I knew no bounds to the ex
pression of my gratitude, for the remedy
that saved me from impending death I
now feel, I am doing a service to my fellow
men in letting them know its merits that
they also may have its aid in time of their
danger. The traveling salesman of the
Wholesale Grocery firm of A. C. Wyly, At

prietor, and others will cheerfully testify to
the above facts."

as to regulate all the derangements and ir
