It is said that E. M. Brayton is after

see Brayton sent to Congress from the
Seventh District. "Why don't the color

worth a thousand such men as Smalls

There is no form of newspaper lying
so utterly disgusting as the various re

alive. So many of these tales have been
told that a vast deal of anxiety has been
aroused, as if it was a common impend

folks have for years followed up every
Story of the kind that they have found
in their exchanges, giving names and
dates, and so far every one has proved
false. We cannot say that such events
are impossible, but it is safe for our
readers to disbelieve every such item
Dn. j. W. Summers in a speech be
fore the Agricultural Society several
days ago announced that he was not
an available candidate for any position
in the State. This literally construed,
means that Dr. Summers is out of poli
tics. This is to be regretted, as we
very much doubt if Orangeburg County
. ever had a more conscientious or faith
rul member of the Legislature than
Dr. Summers. He was always at his
post, and voted on every question that
came up in an open, manly way, and in
his voluntary retirement from public
life our County loses the services of
one of her ablest and most useful sons.
Tin: Palmetto Post s;iy.s some of the
Republican politicians are already lay

nomination from the Seventh District

has a store near Sheldon or Toiuotley,
where lie is cojoling the negroes for
Brayton in view of the coming conven
tion. Boweu is working at the other
end of the line to secure the Berkley
delegation for himself. Altogether
they say Smalls is to have a lively time,
and can't get the nomination. It is said
that Whippcr, Miller und others here
abouts have soured upon Smalls be
cause they have worked enough for him
without pay and very little glory. Bray
ton, it is said, will spend ten thousand
dollars to get the nomination.
A Farmers' Moses.
We very much fear that the farmers,
by the general tenor of Air. Tillnian's
letters, have been made to believe that
they have been wronged and that they
must organize and select a Moses to
lead them out of all their troubles to si
rich and fertile land. The hardness of
the times, their financial condition and
deprivation of educational facilities,
have been paraded as signs of oppres
sion; and their number and wealth
have been cited us indications of their
power to control, and the taxes they
pay, given as a title to all the privileges
enjoyed by other professions. Now,
we believe these are fancied wrongs,
and, if they exist at all, exist only in
the minds of those who wish to ride
into power on the backs of the people
they wish to lead, and this would be a
greater wrong than any yet enumerat
ed'bythem. We readily concede that
the farmers labor under financial
troubles; but the mechanic, lawyer and
physician suffer from the very same
cause and these pay their taxes as well.
If, therefore, one is an oppressed class
so are all- oppressed and we stand' ex
actly in the same category. This, then,
being the case, we cheerfully join in
the farmers movement and will use
every effort to secure relief from trou
bles which afflict all classes of our citi
zens alike. As we understand the
situation, know the causes and feel the
effects, relief may be obtained by sup
plying the following needs: cheaper
and quicker justice, less crime, multi
plied industries,increasein the amount
and value of farm products, improve
ment in educational and transportation
facilities. Everybody wants these and
whatever class of men is able to bring
them about will confer lasting bless
ings upon the entire community. By
virtue of their number, wealth and
experience in close economy, the far
mers, as a class, are better calculated to
accomplish these results than any other;
but it cannot be done except by the co
operation of all the individuals in the
class. Let them meet in a State Con
vention to calmly consider general
topics and to adjust local with general
issues, and when they have perfected a
plan, if it be wise and calculated to ad
vance the public good, we and every
other good citizen will support it to the
extent of our ability. The conserva
tive and hard common sense of the far
mers expressed through such a Con
vention can do no possible harm to
anybody or class of our citizens; be
cause the Agricultural inteiest of the
State is the key-stone of every other
interest. Knock that out the fabric,
and the prosperity of ministers, physi
cians, lawyers, mechanics, clerks, mer
chants and even editors fall in one
Farmers constitute the conservative
element of the State?they are the de
mocracy of South Carolina and it is their
right to speak to the people without
being dictated to by any other element
in the community. Xo charge of
treason, heresy or conspiracy can lodge
at their door, if this convention meet
and discuss the politics of the State, not
as political partisans, or a faction, but
as the Democracy of the State?the
conservative element of it. Good
would naturally result, for what will
conduce to the prosperity of the far
mer, will conduce to the prosperity of
every profession. Besides this, the
farmer would learn their true position
and strength, and this alone would
lead to better feelings among all call
ings and classes.
We have often heard men say, that if
it was not for the debts by which they
were burdened, they could get along
and make something for themselves
and their families. We know of no
more inexorable master than debt, and
the man who is unfortunately its slave
is in a most wretched condition. He
looks upon the mortgage on his lands
and sees how frail is the tenure of his
home. He works his fields and sells
their products at the bidding of the
creditor. His wife and children cat
the food and wear the clothes given to
them as monthly rations by the mer
chant. He thinks and moves and has
his being under the keen lash of the
lien law. Such a condition is not an
honorable one; it breaks the spirits and
benumbs the senses of a man and places
him on the highroad to ruin about
which shadows fall, sorrows cluster,
independent thought is a stranger and
horrible night-mares haunt the sleep
less bed. We fear many of our citizens
to-day live under just such circum
stances and why? needs but the simple
answer of reckless obligations, or debts
injudiciously contracted. To all such,
and especially farmers, the 'Priority
Lien is an emancipation proclamation
and directs them to happiness and ma
terial prosperity. Economy should be
practiced and further indebtedness
avoided if possible. Duty to yourself
and right to your fellows teach that
you must want nothing unless you can
pay for it. If, however, the want be
imperative, sell something you can
spare and supply it and adopt the mot
to, "pay as you go." A few years of
such economy will wipe out past debts
and nut the honest man on his feet
again without injury to a .-ingle credi

How They are Conducted?The Desire for
a Change General.
Editor Times and Democrat:
In your issue of Feb. 18, is a commu
nication from East Goodland Swamp, in
which the writer seems to condemn
the primary system of nominating
As the primary method has never
been tried, in this county it may not be
I generally understood by the voters, and
as no question can be intelligently and
profitably discussed before its funda
mental principles are understood, we
will attempt a synopsis of what the
primary plan really means.
The first step is for the County Exe
cutive committee to call a convention,
composed of the usual number of dele
gates from, each club, or double that
number if preferred; for the purpose of
deciding whether the primary or con
vention plan of making nominations
shall be adopted. The call should state
this distinctly as the object of the
meeting, in order that the matter may
be fully before the people and argu
ment heard both ways. Then it is op
tional with each club whether Its
delegates are sent with instructions for
or against primary or go nninstructetl.
If "this convention decides in favor
of the primary plan, there is yet one
other question, which variety of the
primary plan, majority or plurality,
will be used, and a short explanation
of each may not be out of place. But
before explaining further we will re
mark that either the majority or plu
rality plan gives every patriotic Dem
ocrat of Orangeburg, who is eligible to
ollice, a chance to offer his services to
his county. Whether the citizens are
appreciative enough to accept his ser
vices or not, the test of the primary
With the majority plan the various
candidates announce themselves, a rea
sonable time is given them in which to
canvass the county, then an election is
held. The two for each office getting
the highest number of votes respective
ly are required to run the race again,
all the other names being dropped. Of
course if any candidate gets a majority
of all the votes cast at the first election
he is declared nominated, and need not
be voted for in the next election.
The plurality plan requires that the
candidate for each ollice receiving the
most votes shall be declared the nomi
nee, and only one election is held.
Such details as the pledges required
of the candidates, who shall be allowed
to vote, the time and place of voting,
rules governing the election, managers
and their appointment, may be decided
by the same convention which decides
the question of the primary, or may be
left to the County Executive Commit
tee. Each of these primary plans has
its advantages, and both may be open
to criticism. The majority plan results
in having the candidate the choice of
more than half of the Democratic
voters of the county, while with the
plurality plan a full set of candidates
might be nominated by one or two
strong voting precincts combining on
a "slate" just on the eve of election, too
late for districts more remote to learn
of and checkmate the move. On the
other hand the majority plan is more
tedious, requiring' two elections, the
candidates longer before the people,
thus prolonging the political excite
ment; while the plurality plan is sim
ple, only one election being required.
Hither plan judiciously carried out will
procure a tolerably well-defined choice
of the people, and" presumably slop the
cunt about a "ring," etc.
We do not express an opinion as to
whether there is such a tiling as a
political ring in Orangeburg County,
but. the primary will give the gen
tlemen accused of being in a ring, a
splendid chance to prove thsir popu
larity With the people. Wo have talked
with representative men from various
sections of the county, and the desire
for a change in our method of making
nominations seems general.
The objections urged by your Good
land Swamp correspondent* seem to us
rather an abuse of the system than a
fault in t! system. If the convention
plan is retained there is nothing to
binder "theseslick-tongucd candidates"
from stopping "the plowman" as effect
ually as the candidate before the pri
mary; with this additional considera
tion that candidates before the con
vention have only to manipulate the
various clubs., and this is done through
a few leaders, with each one of whom
he can spare the time to talk "half a
day" even though he does not "pass the
bottle round." With the primary plan
he has so many to see he cannot spare
much time to annoy any particular
one, even at chinch. We hope to see
the matter fully discussed in your pa
per. Very truly,

GEMS OF THE UNITED STATES.
The Product of Precious Stones Surpris*
lugly Small?Groups of Silicates.
The recent volume on the "The Mineral
Resources of the United States," pub
lished by the government, contains an
interesting paper by Mr. George F. Kunz
on the history and production of gem
stones in America. For a country so
otherwise richly endowed with mineral
wealth as the United States, her product
of precious stones is surprisingly small.
The total value of gems mined in tliis
country during 1884 amounted to but
$82,975. Almost two-thirds of this sum
was for minerals valuable only as cabi
net specimens, and therefore not strictly
to be classed under the head of gems. In
addition, the value of the gold quartz
withheld from reduction for use in jew
elry and as specimens is calculated to be
Though in point of quantity and value
among the most insignificant of the en
tire list, the diamond, as the atone of all
stones, naturally receives the first con
sideration. Probably the largest one
ever found in this country is the Man
chester diamond, which was unearthed
by a laborer at Manchester, Va, about
the middle of the century. The gem was
not recognized at first, and by way of ex
periment was placed in an iron furnace
at Richmond. After remaining at a red
heat for two hours and twenty minutes,
it was unimpared and brighter than be
fore. When recognized, it was valued at
$4,000. As the atone is off-color and im
perfect, it is not worth to-day more than
from 9300 to $400. The gold regions of
North Carolina have produced a number
of small diamonds. Among the first dis
covered was a fine octohedron from
Brindletown creek, valued at $100.
Some of the finest American diamonds
come fr??Ol California, though their size
is generally quite small. Professor Whit
ney states that the stone is found in
fifteen or twenty diiferent localities, the
Largest that lias come under his notice
having been discovered at French Corral.
It weighed 7 1-4 carats. Among the
sapphire gems, a number of excellent
specimens have been found, particularly
in North Carolina. Probably one of the
finest known specimens of emerald green
sapphire was found at Jenks mine, in
Franklin county. It is the transparent
part of a corundum crystal, 4 by 1 1-2
inches. It would probably furnish gems
to the amount of 100 carats. Being very
rare, its value is over $1,000. Fine speci
mens of chrysoberyl and spinel have been
found in various localities in New Eng
land, New York, and the southern states.
The Platte mountains, in Colorado, have
afforded the best crystals of topaz. On
of these weighs 125 carats, and is as fine
a gem of any kind as America has ever
In garnets, America has produced
stones comparable with the best products
of Africa and the east. Though smaller
than those found in the diamond mines
of the capo of Good Hope, the garnets of
the Colorado river plateau are unsur
passed in color and clearness. The cape
garnets retain their dark color by arti
ficial light, but in American nothing but
the clear blood color is visible. It is in
the group of silicates that wo find the
largest value among American gem
minerals. In transparent quartz, par
ticularly fine crystals have been found in
New York. The purple variety, the well
known amethyst, is quite common in
New England, one specimen found near
Cheshire. Conn., being almost equal in
color to the much praised Siberian gems.
The most remarkable native amethyst
is that recently deposited in the National
museum by Dr. Lucas. It is a turtle
shaped prehistoric cutting, which meas
ures 2 3-4 inches in length, 2 inches in
width, and 1 1-2 inches in thickness.
The whole stone is transparent and with
out a flaw. Smoky quartz has returned
the largest revenue of any of the gem
stones, amounting, in 1884, to $10,000.
The finest specimens are those from Bear
creek, Colorado, where finely developed
crystals, from an inch to over four feet
in length, have been found. Quartz
crystals containing fluid cavities with
moving bubbles are of particular inter
est, and have been found in a number of
localities. The beautiful green variety
of feldspar known as Amazon stone,
which has been found in fine crystals at
Pike's peal:, is much prized as cabinet
Numbers of minerals also, which have
but a nominal value in themselves, are
made up into attractive articles. An

the same purposes, only that the pipes sell
for $1 to $20 apiece, according to the
carving, and circulate strictly :uuong
A Couple of Time-Honored Puns,
One of the "society" papers recently
exposed a fiction which had become
widespread. When Sir Charles Napier
took Sind, it was stated that he sent
home to the government the punning
message, "Peccavi," to inform them that
"I have Sind." This is not a bad pun,
but the credit of it is due, not to Sir
Charles Napier, but to Punch, in the
pages of which periodical it appeared
soon after the announcement of the tak
ing of Sind. The pun is of the same
order as Lamb's "Docet" Latin for Thou
teachest." and intended, to designate a
