Theke has been a reduction of 267 in
the clerical force of the United States
Treasury Department under the pre
sent administration and yet there are
people who say that Republican rule
Is as good as Democratic rule.
TnE fact that the county officers of
Colleton County oppose the primary
plan of nominating candidates would
lead an outsider to infer that these
geutlemca are not willing to trust the
people of that grand old county.
"Washington papers say that Gen
eral Logan has 200 letters everyday.
This is 174 more than there are in the

are true. _
The Danes have rigidly stringent
laws against bogus butter. There may
be something tainted with destructive
oxidation in the State of Denmark, but
it won't be the butter, not if the Folke
thing of the Royal Ragtag or Rigsdag,
or whatever they call it, knows itself.
So far as we are informed the mass of
the people are in favor of a clean sweep
of Republicans from office, and the
Augusta Chronicle need not fear that
it is alone in advocating such a policy.
It is a fact that those men who cry the
loudest for the continuance of the civil
service humbug were the first to secure
fat places for personal friends.
Year by year the conflict between
capital and labor grows* stronger and
stronger; year by year the fact grows
plainer that some means are necessary
to regulate and render more amicable
the relations between the two. This,
above everything else, is the great
question which ourlaw-rnakingpowers
will be forced to meet. *
The Chattanooga Republicans are in
more trouble than ever about the col
ored vote. The darkies are actually
bolting from the grand old party, and
propose to hav'e their part of the coun
ty offices or defeat the Republican
nominees. Two negroes have already
announced themselves as independent
candidates for Circuit Court Clerk and
The suggestions of Dr. W. C. Wan
namaker, chairman of the, Board of
Health of Orangeburg* to the City
Council in reference to the sanitary
condition of our town are wise and
timely, and our City Fathers should 1
give them their careful and serious I
consideration.. No money value can be 1
placed upon the health of a communi- 1
ty, and a little outlay of money should
not stand in the way of preserving the
lives of our citizens from disease. 1
The statistician of the New York
Commercial Advertiser figures out that
"in all h uman probability the300,000 war 1
pensioners now on the Washington j
roll will be increased to over 1.000.0CO 1
in the coming hall* century. The 11,324 1
men engaged in the war of 1812 left
17,892 widows and they increase year- '
ly." This pension business is one of
the hugest swindles of the age, and if a
halt is not called pretty soon it will
bankrupt the country.
The Millennium has arrived in Ga
lena, Kansas. Forty-seven citizens of
that town have petitioned the editor of
a local paper to allow them to give him
a benefit at the opera house, assigning
as a reason that he has never failed to
give his columns to the assistance of
home entertainments, civic orders,
churches, schools, charities, or organi
zations of every description. Now
what scoffer will dare to say that there
is no appreciation in this world, and
that the just will never receive his re
ward ? _
A Buffalo newspaper pinches Senator
Edmunds pretty hard when it calls upon
him to square his record in respect to
confirming old soldiers. The point
rests thus: Mr. Edmunds urges his as
sociates to reject the nomination of
Hon. ;i. V. Smalley, as Collector at
Burlington, Vt., on the ground that he
replaces an old soldier, but he voted to
confirm Charles A. Gould, appointed
Collector of Buffalo by President Car
field. rue Major Tyler, a one-armed
soldier, removed without a cause. Mr.
Edmunds is classed us a great states
man, but it seems to make as much
difference to him as to an ordinary
politician who displaces the old soldier.
Since the inauguration of President
Cleveland we have ha.l no elections in
any of the pivotal States to Indicate
"whether the Democratic policy, as
pursued in the communities there, was
holding its own, gaining ground
or losing supporters. After passing
through the stirring political events of
the last year, the people very naturally
would desire to know if the policy, re
ceived with so many misgivings at
tirst, was receiving still the hearty
support of its friends after one year's
experience of its operation. This in
formation was furnished by the result
of the municipal elections, held on the
13th instant, in the cities of Albany.
Hoboken, New Brunswick and Jersey
City, as far as these communities may
indicate the popular sentiment of that
section of our great country. In each
of these cities a very pronounced Demo
crat was chosen Mayor by handsome
majorities; and in Albany, X, Y., Mr.
J. B. Thacher was elected by an in
creased majority over that received by
Mr. Cleveland in the Presidential elec
tion of 1884.
We cannot, of course, count too much
upon these facts, but there are many
malcontents and political cranks in
every quarter of the United States,
who have left no stone unturned by
which they could depreciate the policy
of the present National Administra
tion and who have been trying to prove
that its course has been such as to
hazard the success of the party in 1888.
They have been dealing especially in
very unfavorable criticisms of Mr.
Cleveland's policy as regards the Civil
Service lteform, his independence of
party rule and almost stubborn dis
regard of their own peculiar notions as
to his conduct in office. To these
gentlemen, therefore, these elections
in the pivotal States of New York and
New Jersey point a significant moral
and, in the future, may adorn a doleful
We rather admire partisanship in the
ordinary political affairs of life and
would not object seriously to it in
matters of county and State politics,
but when we come to such an office as
the Presidency of a great Republic like
the United States, we would infinitely
prefer statesmanship to partizanship in
the conduct of National affairs. It is
the soul of a political party and with
out it a party cannot live. Statesman
ship is the outgrowth of genuine
patriotism and if the latter exist in the
rank and file of a party, the former
will control it and perpetuate its
power. In the administration of Mr.
Cleveland during the last year, there
are many elements of a pure and exalted
statesmanship which will compare
favorably with the days of Calhoun,
Webster and Clay?tho period of the
greatest glory and power of our party.
But when love of country yields to love
of spoil then statesmanship must give
place to partizanship and the country
is on the high road to mob-rule and
anarchy. Under the principles that
control the policy of Mr. Cleveland we
are assured that the Democratic party
will live on to bless this nation with
liberty, prosperity and union in spite of
the croakings of cranks and th-j opposi
tion of anti-administration journals.
An election to-day would give Mr.
Cleveland his office by an undoubted
majority, and if no greater sins be com
mitted than those laid at the doors of
Mr. Cleveland now, the election of 1888
will give the same result. .The Demo
cratic party is still victorious and will
grow stronger as wisdom controls her
councils and statesmanship directs her
The Fanner's Convention.
It is difficult to imagine what course
the Farmer's Convention, when assem
bled in Columbia, will pursue. Having
no power to decide finally upon any
question, it can only review, discuss
and afterwards memorialize a higher
body in which is vested the power to
net. In this limited capacity, however,
it can do much to restore peace and
establish confidence among the various
classes of our citizens. There is no
questioning the fact that our people
have been thrown into a state of un
rest and dissatisfaction by Mr. Till
man's letters and the discussion,
through the papers, of the topics pre
sented by them. Charges have been
brought against State officials, the
members of the Legislature have been
arraigned for neglect of duty and mis
appropriation of funds and depart
ments for misapplying them, and the
farmers of the State are called upon to
organize themselves for defenoe. These
charges need to be investigated and
ought, in all Tairness and justice, to
receive the attention of the convention
until the bottom facts are brought out.
If our State officials have been remiss
in duty or have not been faithful to the
trust reposed in them, we ought to
know it and the ofiicer ought to be
named and in connection with the
crime charged; and if the members of
the Legislature have been neglectful,
such neglect ought to be designated
and the guilty ones published. The
citizens of the State should be put in
possession of the facts as they really
are, in order that this unrest and dis
satisfaction may cease and our society
return to its normal condition. This
is one ot the legitimate duties of the
convention, and we hope it will not be
We do not think the convention
I ought to adjourn .without preparing a
platform, to be submitted to the State
Democratic Convention for' approval,
embracing all the principles, methods
and whatever else the farmers may
deem necessary for the advancement
of their interest. Every redress and
reform needed should be sought for at
the hands of the Democratic party anc
without it, should nothing be done.
This is the right of the farmers and we
know of no better way of securing it
than through the convention to meet
on the 29th instant. It is to be hoped
then that onr county convention, on
Saturday next, will send delegates in
full sympathy with the State Conven
tion and who will see to it that the
.farming interest be properly cared -for
before that body.
A Change of Base.
The labor troubles in the West seem
to have taken a new direction and the
battle will probably be fought out on
a new field without further blood-shed,
violation of law or destruction of pro
perty. The large quantities of freight,
accumulated during the strike, are be
ing moved as rapidly as possible under
the protection of soldiers and trains
are sent out to all points and received
from them without molestation on the
part of strikers.
Mr. Jay Gould has instructed his at
torney to enter suits to recover dam
ages against all persons who engaged
in obstructing business and destroying
property, and Mr. Powderly, the Master
Workman of the Knights of Labor,
has published a latter foreshadowing
the course to be pursued by that
organization in case no honorable
settlement of the troubles be arranged
by a certain time. This time having
passed, Mr. Gould will be met in the
courts with a number of suits the re
sult of which will expose his methods
and the manner by which he has ac
cumulated his vast fortune. The best
legal talent in the country will be en
gaged and in these trials verdicts will
not be bought or any undue influence
be brought to bear upon jurors.
Business men may now breathe freelv
again and the country wait patiently
until Mr. Powderly lays open through
the courts the methods by which Mr.
Gould has become a law within himself,
"an American citizen"with no accounta
bility save to his own conscience and
the center of a monopoly from which
radiate a thousand curses throughout
the whole country. We hope the courts
will be equal to the emergency and
justice once more may be measured
out without being controlled by money
or the personal influence of captalists.
The Barnwell People of last trt^k,
says: . '
"The people of Johntown are bent on
having a railroad. They perfer its
coming to Blackville but if substantial
aid is Lot given them this side of the
Edisto they will accept the overtures
of Orangeburg. If the road goes down
the ridge, there will be so little trade
and travel across the Edisto that the
new, Holman's and Binnaker's bridges
may as well be abandoned. While
Blackville may not be specially benefit
ted by being made the southern termi
nus of the road, it certainly seems that
would be a less evil than to be effects
ally and everlastingly side tracked.
The business men of'the commercial
metropolis of the county' must answer
Orangeburg made a big mistake when
she refused to help build a railroad
from this place to Elloree or some other
point in the Santee country, and some
of our best andshrewdestJjusiness men
now admit the fact. She is now called
upon to say whether she will allow
another section of her legitimate terri
tory to be tapped by a railroad inimical
to her commercial interests, or whether
she will stretch forth her hand and aid
the people of Johntown to build a road
to this point. The extract from the
People shows how important this road
is to Orangeburg. If it is built that
journal thinks that there will be so
little travel and trade across the Edisto
to Blackville that the bridges across
that stream may as well be abandoned.
This is strong language but we believe
the facts warrants it. This is Orange
burg's opportunity. Will she improve
it? Or will she allow herself to be bot
tled up by the towns on the other
branch of the South Carolina Railway.
The grave of "Stonewall" Jackson,
whom Col. Dodge, of Boston, an ex
Federal soldier, pronounces the ablest
"Lieutenant of our civil war," is un
marked, and it is proposed that a
monument shall be erected there by
small contributions from every part of
the South. No specified sum is asked
for, and the cost of the monument will
be whatever is given. Large gifts
from individuals are declined, the in
tention of the association being that
the monument shall represent the
Southern people generally and be built
by a multitude of small contributions.
The County of Orangeburg should con
tribute a small amount at least to this
work of love, and we hope that some
of our old soldiers will interest them
selves in the matter and see that our
people have an opportunity of honor
ing the memory of this Southern hero.
The New York Star makes the
charge that Joseph i'ulizer, the editor
of the New York World, an alleged
Democratic paper, while he was a
Democratic candidate lor Congress
contributed S5,000 toward the Blame
The Library Kill.
The News and Courier never misses
an opportunity to assail the Hon.
Samuel Dibble, and when an oppor
tunity does not present itself that
journal with its usual enterprise pro
ceeds to make one. as it did recently in
discussing the National Library Bill.
\ attacking this bill the News and
ourier took an unfortunate text, as
the bill had been thoroughly discussed
in the House this session as well as
during the previous session. Instead
of blaming Mr. Dibble for the passage
of this bill as it did if our cotemporary
had taken the trouble to enquire it
would have found that Senator Butler
is ?i member of the Special Senate
Committee in charge of the bill, while
in the House it was in charge of the
Joint Committee on the Library. In
the Senate there was a "special com
mittee on additional accommodation
for the library," composed of three
Democrats, Senators "Voorhees, of Indi
ana, Butler, of South Carolina, and
Gibson, of Lousiana. and two Republi
cans, Morrill, of Vermount, and Miller,
of California. So it will be seen that a
Democratic majority was on the com
mittee in the Senate, and if the News
and Courier wanted to pitch into any
body why did it not attack Senator
Butler instead of Mr. Dibble, who was
not on the House Committee even.
From the fact that President Cleve
land promptly gave the bill his ap
proval by signing it dhows that it was
a meritorious measure, and we hope
this fact will have the effect of cooling
down the indignation of our Charles
ton cotemporary on this raid on the
treasury, as it was pleased to term the
appropriation for the National Library.
Rhode Islam! Gone Dry.
There is great excitement in Rhode
Island over the result of the recent
election in that State. Wetmore, the
Republican candidate, .for Governor,
was elected by a majority of less than
1,800, while Edwin Metcalf, the Demo
cratic and prohibition candidate for
Attorney General, has a majority of
1,784. Attorney General Colt's defeat
was not a great surprise to anybody,
but the adoption of a prohibitory law
by over three-fifths of all the votes cast
is the sensation of the hour. 'The li
quor dealers' association did not realize
the great work done by the "Woman's
Christian Temperance Union until
three days before election, and then it
was too late to stem the tide. The la
dies of the union, wearing blue ribbon
badges, were at ;dl the voting places,
and to .them is due in a great measure
the election of Colonel Metcalf and the
passage of the prohibitory law. The
liquor dealers are dumbfounded and
can scarcely realize that their occupa
tion is gone. On the other hand mass
and prayer meetings are being held all
over the State for the purpose of giving
thanks and rejoicing over the result of
the most memorable political contest
that ever took place in the State. The
most enthusiastic temperance advo
cates never dreamed that they would
win, and their gratification can be
imagined when they learned that they
not only secured a majority, but had
complied with the law, which requires
that au; change in the constitution
must be by the casting of three-fifths
of idl votes polled._
The Manufacturers' Record in a re
cent article, draws a parallel between
taxation North and South very favor
able to the South. The estimate is
based on the per capita tax. The gen
eral average of the Northern .States
proper is .58.53; of the Western States,
$9.97, and of the Southern States, 62.46.
This showswt prodigious difference be
tween the per capita tax of the New
England, in fact of all the Northern
States, and the Southern States in favor
of the latter. Among the Southern
States North Carolina is the lowest,
being ?1.37 per head, and Virginia at
.53.07, is the highest. South Carolina
is rated at$1.85 per head. Among the
New England States Vermont, at "55.25,
is the lowest,fand Massachusetts $13.94,
is the highest. Among the Western
States Kansas, at .55, is the lowest, and
Illinois, at 86.24. is the highest. Among
the Pacific States Oregon, at -86.37, is the
lowest, and California, at 514.60 per
capita, is the hightest These statistics
have been taken from the last census.
The arrest of the New York alder
men in bulk on Tuesday week caused a
big sensation at that city. Four of the
men arrested are County Democrats,
three or four are Tammany Hall men,
two are Republicans, and the others are
Irving Hall or doubtful, so that none
of the policical factions have any ad
vantage in this matter over the others.
One of them is a janitor, several are
liquor dealers, one is a rag dealer,
another is a manufacturer of paper
boxes, and three or four are best de
scribed by the term "professional poli
ticians." Of the 24 members of the
board of aldermen in 1884, two are dead
and only two others living voted
against the franchise, they beiner II. J.
Grant, now sheriff, and John C. O'Con

men arrested, and they were put under
