JAMES L. SIMS,
Lock Box No, 116, Orangeburg, S. C.
Mayor Rhett, of Columbia, has been
renomiriated for a third term by the
Democrats of that city. "We congratu
late the people of Columbia on their
good judgment in this matter. They
know a good officer when they get him.
'?Formerly,? says the New York
Sun, "when a member of Congress died,
his remains were interred in the Con
gressional Cetnetary east of the Capi
tol, and ^ plain and inexpensive granite
monument was erected over the spot
of burial." But that was .before the
days of parlor cars with a buffet at on.
Capt B. It. Tillmau says "the far
mers" movement in this State is not
aimed at the Democratic party; that
the farmers who are interested in this
movement are Democrats, and will
fight their battles inside the party
ranks at the primaries and in conven
tion, and that If they are whipped they
will vote the Democratic ticket and try
to be more successful the next time."
Mrs. Virginia Thompson, who is
making a hard fight for a third term in
the Louisville post office is a lady with
an exceptional gift for politics. She is
remarkable not only for being a daugh
ter of Alexander Campbell, the famous
preacher, but for strong Republicanism
joined to a disposition so' provident of
the future that she contributed liberal
ly in 1884 to the campaign funds of
The New York Star, the only real
leading Democratic paper in the great
commercial and political centre, has
good hope that the President will pro
tect the Constitution and veto the Edu
cutional Grab bill if it should pass the
House. It will certainly prove Mr
Cleveland's opportunity, but whether
he is grounded enough in the bed rock
principles of Madison, Jefferson, Jack
son, Calhoun and Black to use his pow-.
er in the endeavor to prevent a great
evil we cannot anticipate.
One branch of the Signal Service
system deserves special encouragement,
and Southern people are directly inter
ested. It is the proposed < method of
predicting and flagging cyclones and
tornadoes, and if it can be developed
into anything like reasonable certainty
new appropriations should be made.
The subject is profoundly interesting
and valuable, because it is claimed,
much property and life may be saved
by the service. By all means let us
have the tornado signal.
A member of the South Carolina
delegation says he has information of a
syndicate which is being formed in
Washington to purcha.se all out stand
ing claims against the Government
which come within the scope of bills
now pending before Congress, provid
ing for the payment of captured and
abandoned property. A corps of agents
will be sent through the Southern
States with instructions to buy up all
cotton and other claims provided for in
the bill mentioned. There are three
bills of this character, and it is said
that favorable action is likely to be
reached on one of them during the
In one of the Norfolk papers is told
?and very properly with high com
mendation?the story of a colored man
now living in that city, who has dis
played an amount of honor in the high
est degree ereditable to any man. Pre
vious to the war he agreed with his
master to purchase his freedom at the
price of 81,300. When manumitted by
President Lincoln's proclamation he
had paid SSOO; but feeling bound by his
promise, he has labored all these years
to earn the remaining S500, and has
just succeeded in paying the last in
stalment which makes him "now a
freeman, indeed." In conclusion, the
Norfolk paper says: "His name, which
deserves to be recorded everywhere, is
The Charlotte Observer has been
publishing some very interesting ac
counts recently, showing the unlimited
extravagance of members of Congress
and Senators at the expense of the gen
eral government. Its latest publica
tion is the expenses of the committee
appointed to attend the funeral of the
late Ifon. II. B. Anthony. They were
only gone three days, and to give some
instances of expenses in that line, there
was :?70.00 spent for telegrams, $80.00
for kid gloves, hotel bill $369.00,
amount paid for twenty-lour silk sashes
S144.00. These are only a few of the
many sums charged up to the govern
ment. It is said that the expenses of
the f .moral of Senator Miller will not
fall far short of twenty thousand dol
lars, and all from the pockets of the
The Labor Trouble.
The war, which has been going on
for years in the old countries between
labor and capitahhas at last,opened up in
its most horrid shape at our own doors.
Millions of dollars have been locked up,
other millions have been criminally
destroyed, thousands of laborers have
been idle consumers, the law has been
openly violated and the courts have
been powerless to redress the wrong,
perpetrated, the lives of our citizens
have been put in jeopardy, the business
of whole sections has been paralized
and further excesses have been threat
ened which if carried into execution
will certainly involve our people in
deadly strife. Every good citizen,
whether capitalist or laborer, deplores
not only the present condition of af
fairs but looks with horror upon the
possibilities of the future; and the ad
justment of grievances, whatever they
may be, will be hailed with joy through
out the whole country. We, therefore
read with more than ordinary interest
the address of Mr. Powderly, the chief
of the order of Knights of Labor, and
hope his better and wiser counsel will
prevail among the members of that
large and powerful organization. The
good his policy of arbitration can ac
complish is incalculable, and the evil
of pursuing the present excesses is pro
portionately vast in its results. The
tendency in powerful organizations is
more in the direction of brute force
than in sober reason, and we fear unless
wisdom and temperance control the
advice here, every department of in
dustry, including our farming interest,
[ will suffer at the hands of men injudi
ciously managed. Loss and suffering
in this case must result and anarchy
and blood-shed may. Such possibilities
are reasonable and lead us to believe
that the present trouble in the We3t is
no trifling matter and that our people
should treat it with the consideration
it deserves. Forewarned is forearmed
and preparation for a fight is half the
battle. Whether arbitration is the
proper remedy remains to be seen, it at
least argues that wrong exists some
where, and the finding of that wrong
and its proper adjustment constitute
the problem of the hour.
The Battle Ended.
Xot unexpected, as some think, the
contest with President Cleveland end
ed last week by the passage of Senator
Edmunds' resolutions in the Senate by
a strict party vote. The salvation of
the Republican party has always de
pended upon a perfect organization and
a close adherence to party faith, and
wherever weakness manifested itself
the party lash has been most vigorously
applied to bring the traitors back to
duty. In this contest the old method
was the final resort and all such men as
Senator Hoar and a half-dozen others,
who have been silent and by that
silence led the public to believe that
they were opposed to the contest, have
been made to realize that greater
power rests in a party mandate than in
the law, the constitution or the wel
fare of the country at large. They
have been literally driven at the end of
the lash to vote for a measure their
better judgment could nor, approve.
There, was not enough of patriotism or
manhood in their composition to make
I a firm stand for right and honor a pos
sible thing. While we pity this exhibi
tion of human weakness, we dispise
the corrupting influences which made
the degradation a humiliating reality.
This vote, however, decides no ques
tion, gives advantage ground to no
body and does not change the position
of the President in the smallest particu
lar. He will continue to suspend, re
move and appoint officers as he thinks
best for the public service; the Senato
will, we suppose, continue to reject
and confirm as the majority think best
for the Republican party, and thus we
shall go on to the end. Mr. Edmunds
will hold the party reins and drive the
faithful steeds to the journey's end, ap
plying the whip when they are jaded
and coaxing when restive. Mr. Blaine,
perhaps, may be induced to play the
role of attendant in order that he may
be in close proximity and to keep him
self acquainted with the methods ne
cessary for an expert manager. In the
mean time the Democrats will hold
the offices and see that the country
suffers no detriment while the Senate's
Majority under Mr. Edmunds carries
the party to deeper depths of shame.
Wake Up !
The meeting of the corporators of
the Orangeburg and Lewicdale Rail
road at this place last Tuesday was
quite enthusastic, and encourages the
friends of this enterprise to hopo that
at no distant day work will be com
menced oil the proposed road. The
building of this road is a matter of
vital importance to the town of Orange
burg and our citizens should take a
lively interest in it. Blackville is mov
ing for a road in the direction of Lewie
dale, and if Orangeburg does not do
her duty, we have no doubt but that
our Lexington friends will find a ter
minus for their road at that place, as
we learn that our Blackville neighbors
are willing to raise quite a sum for the
purpose of securing the connection, so
Orangeburg must wake up and go to
work, if she wants to retain the trade

To Correct a Wrong Impression.
"The Orangeburg Agricultural So
ciety, by a vote of sixteen to twelve,
adopted a resolution favoring the
holding of a county Convention to send
delegates to the proposed State conven
tion of farmers. A resolution 'that
this societv does not favor or sympa

Mr. B. R. Tillman, Hamburg.

Gen. Lee's College being what I most
desired to read. On receipt of youi
previous letter, I promptly visited
some of our leading planters, (several
of whom heard your speech at Bennett
v?le>and after a careful review of all
your published articles, taken in con
junction with that speech, we were
forced to the conclusion, that your po
sition was in antagonism with the en
tire State Administration and could
not be endorsed by. a conservative
spirit. Under these circumstances we
decided to lay the matter before our
Agricultural Society without comment
and the reported discussion that ensued
is an unreliable and feeble version of
the sentiments expressed. The fact
was plainly dsvoloped that such a col
lege was earnestly desired, but many
like myself were skeptical of the plan
by which it was to be secured. Since
our meeting the sentiment of the mass
of producers outside of the society has
been freely expressed, and if a county
convention was held to-morrow it
would enthusiastically endorse your
Call your convention and this county
"We have no idea who wrote the above
letter, but we hardly think that the
members of the Agricultural Society
will bear out the assertion it contains
that "the reported discussion that en
sued is an unreliable and feeble version
of the sentiments expressed." Our re
porter tried to report the meetiug as
fully as the space at his command
would permit, and that he did his duty
fairly and truthfully, we have no doubt.
Our columns are open to this corres
pondent to show wherein "the report
ed discussion that ensued is an unrelia
ble and feeble version of the sentiments
expressed." The action of the Society
may not have been what this corres
pondent desired, but the cold facts are
that it did exactly what is reported
above, and this correspondent or no
one else cannot deny it or disprove it.
The Revival Meetings.
The revival meetings conducted by
Messrs. Moody and Sankey at the Agri
cultural Hall in Charleston steadily
grew in interest until they left that
city for Columbia on Monday morning
last. We were fortunate in being able
to attend these services on Saturday and
Sunday, and we bear testimony to the
great work done by these earnest and
consecrated gentlemen in the few days
appointed for them. There was a deep
current of religious feeling pervading
the entire congregation assembled on
each occasion and particularly was this
noticeable among the younger portion,
especially the students of schools and
cadets of theMilitary Academy. There
was no excitement such as is often ob
jected to on such occasion, but the gos
pel, presented as only Mr. Moody and
others of his character can present it,
was doing a great work by appealing to
the honest convictions and sober rea
son of the people. Ministers and lay
men from every portion of this State
and Georgia were in attendance and
we do hope that these persons imbibed
much of the spirit and sentiment of
this meeting, so that they may scatter
their influence in every portion of the
State. The preaching of Mr. Moody
and the singing of Mr. Sankey cannot
fail to reach the hearts and consciences
of their audience and result in bless
ings to every one.
Jay Gould was asked last week if the
Missouri Pacific company might sub
mit to a compromise, rather than pro
long the contest. He replied: "There
can be no compromise; I am bound to
light this question to the bitter end. I
have asked the opinion of Judge Dillon
as to our legal rights. He says: "The
company has a legal remedy against
the Knights of Labor in suits for dama
ges." We shall sue members of the or
ganization, and the papers in the case
are being prepared. We propose to
recover damages from every member
who has any property."

Au Unknown Snug.
- We seem to have been steered against
an unknown snag, by an unknown per
son and in an unknown way. In the
last number of The Orangeburg
Times and Democrat there is a string
of questions in the shape of a com
munication signed "Paysan." As well
as we can understand these questions,
they are intended to show that every
body in this State except the interlocu
tor is profoundly ignorant of the tariff.

wilderment we find the last two to be?

to "Paysan;" neither do we understand
the why or whereof of his allusions to
