Lock Box No. 116, Orangeburg, S. C.
Alderman Jaehne of New York
was sentenced by Judge Barret to nine
years and ten months in Sing Sing last
Thursday. Jaehne was the first of the
Aldermen convicted of receiving a
bribe in connection with the granting
of the Broadway franchise to Jake
?Sharp's surface road. This is the way
the Democratic party serves its rascals.
The News and Courier of Tuesday
publishes side by side the expressions
used in Congressman Tillman's last
letter as to ths present relations of the
Southern people to their fellow-citizens
of the North, and those used by Senator
Butler upon the same subject in his re
cent speech to tho Dragoons. The com
parison places Tillman in an unenviable
Senator Beck's zeal for the confir
mation of the Republican postmaster
of Louisville is untempered. "Why
should a Republican woman be appoint
ed to office in preference to a Democrat ?
And why should Democrats ask for
such an appointment? Willis, the
Blairite of the House, caused the ap
pointment, aided and abetted by Sena
tor Beck. It is a very censurable pro
cedure and deserves rebuke.
Charleston thinks it outrageous
that she should be represented in Con
gress by a man from a country town,
and is anxious to send one of her law
yers to look after her interest there.
This is pardonable enough, but the
gallant sons of Charleston did not want
the position when it required hard
work and money to get it. A country
man was good enough then, and unless
we are very much mistaken will have
to be good enough for some time to
As will be seen by an article publish
ed elsewhere in this issue from the
Charleston Sunday Dispatch, it is likely
that Mr. Dibble will be opposed for
re-election to Congress by Mr. W. II,
Brawley, of Charleston. Mr. Brawley
is no doubt a most excellent gentleman,
but we rather think he is too much
interested in railroads and other corpora
tions to make a good representative of
the people. There are too many such
men in Congress now, and we hope
South Carolina will not add another to
the number already there. We fully
endorse every word the Dispatch sa3*s
is reference to Mr. Dibble.
"Yes," remarked the Hon. Posey
Stubbs of the wire grass district, "I
managed to get $60,000 out of the River
and Harbor boodle for the improve
ment of BearwaUow Creek, but my
constituents have not risen to the
emergency, I am sorrv to say." "How
isthat?" asked the stranger. "Why,
they write me that they can't find the
d?d creek," cried Mr. Stubbs in dis
gust. "Did you ever hear of such
stupidity ? I telegraphed the blooming
innocents at once to rechristen a con
venient watering trough." The above
pretty well illustrates on what flimsy
ground appropriations are made by
Representative Ward, of Indiana,
says the Democrats will lose that State
in the next election unless the present
War Tariff is reduced. They will be
hurt in other States than Indiana if
the blood sucking is not cut down. On
the other hand it is claimed by some
Democrats in Washington that they
will gain two members in California
and ono each in Louisiana, Tennessee,
Missouri and Illinois. But they are cer
tain to lose heavily in Ohio, Iowa and
Michigan. If the Democrats do not
hold their own in the South and gain
in New York they may wake up in
November with a consciousness that
something has hit them and that the
next House will be Republican.
Up to this date the President has in
all sent about 2,100 nominations for
civil offices to the Senate. Of these
1.7U0 have been confirmed and only 13
rejected. The remaining 400 will be
disposed of in a comparatively short
time, and it is not expected that the
proportion of rejections will be in
creased. The nominations of Mr.Cleve
land, therefore, are treated every whit
as well by a Republican Senate as if
made by an executive of their own
party. Pennsylvania nominations it
had been anticipated would meet
with much objection, but of the entire
150 sent in all have been confirmed
with but two or three exceptions, and
these are still pending and will go
through. Nearly all of these nomina
tions were made at the instance of Mr.
Randall, and Senator Don Cameron has
taken as much interest in having them
confirmed as if they were his own per
sona- and political friends.
The comaionly accepted political
maxim, that two great parties are
absolutely necessary in a Republic like
ours, may be true of a nation of extend
ed territory with varied interests and
a mixed population; but we are dispos
ed to doubt its application to a state of
narrow limits like South Carolina,
where the population and interest are
so nearly hcincgoneouij. -There are
only two elements in our population,
thj white and the colored, and the
interests of both are identical, based
upon agricultural products and upon
whatever system of government that
will yield the greatest protection to life
and property. These elements, there;
fore, left to themselves, would very
naturally unite into one great political
party for mutual protection. That
they have diverged is due not to any
principle of action belonging to either,
but to outside influences directly op
posed to the best condition of both.
After the war Northern fanatics found
them standing in abeyance to each
other and saw that it was for their in
terest, both religious and political, to
keep them so. Hence every effort was
made by "these people" to array the
races against each other in order that
I they might reap an abuneant harvest
of plunder and spoil by the division.
These influences were checked in '76 by
exposing the dark ways of the thieves
and murderers who controlled them,
and have been made comparatively in
effective since then by the experience
of those who were used as tools to
further their nefarious designs. The
inside history of penitentiaries may
give the subsequent lives of many of
these gentlemen and a just social ostra
cism stamps the rest as unworthy of
the respect, to say nothing of the con
fidence of the people among whom they
live as self-condemned criminals. Their
former tools are already supremely in
different as to their fate, and as wealth
and- comforts multiply, under Demo
cratic rule, around the homes of our
colored citizens, they will despise the
very memory of their bondage to such
vile miscreants. All the requirements
of the community and every feature of
our social condition point, at this time,
to political unity and it will be worse
than folly?suicidal for any class of our
citizens to think of division in the
Democratic party. Its principles are
broad and liberal and, when properly
used, conduce to the well-being of
every citizen. Its aim is the best gov
ernment at the least cost to the govern
ed; and, if this result has not been
reached, it can only be obtained by
unity of action, particularly on the
part of the controlling element of our
population. The colored voters hold
the balance of power and, in case of a
division among ?the whites, will join
that faction which promises them the
largest share in controlling the govern
ment. The success of such a scheme
would make the division permanent
and once more put in jeopardy the best
interest of the whole State. In this
crisis, therefore, when new problems
are being solved, new schemes are being
devised and new patriots are seeking to
enter the approaches to office, our peo
ple had better think seriously before
they hazard the unity of the Demo
cratic party. Our interest being one
and our aim being the same, safety and
prosperity for every citizen lie not in
division but in the political union of the
whole population. It cost too much to
wrest South Carolina out of the hands of
political thieves for us ever to abandon
her again to their tender mercy. The
type of patriotism which finds its origin
in the commingling of French, English
and German blood in the veins of the
citizens of Orangeburg will not suffer
so ruinous a disaster to befall the State.
Mr. Tilliiuin ltcplle*.
"Farmer Tillman" rises this week to
reply to the many criticism of the peo
ple and press on the recent convention
and its results. He emphatically denies
that it was "Tillman's Convention all
the way through," that he controlled
its deliberations or appointed its com
mittee on business; but he asserts posi
tively and boldly that it was a repre
sentative body of the farmers of the
State and that time would prove the
truth of his assertion. He indulges a
prediction that the farmers of the
State will ratify most if not all the acts
of the convention. In meeting the ob
jection made to the Agricultural Col
lege that it will cost two much, Mr.
Tillman declares that an appropriation
of $75,000 and $25,000 tax on fertilizers
which can be used the first year to
build and equip it, are all the funds he
wants for present purposes. He pro
poses to use convict labor where-ever it
can be utilized, also the chemical labora
tory of the board of agriculture and to
make up the library out of the agricul
tural books of the State library and
with these helps he guarantees that the
college can be opened on the 1st of
We admire the candor of Mr. Tillman
and his positive manner in dealing

that these topics will engage the best

matters, but let us work cautiously

The New Bishops.
The General Conference of the Meth
odist Episcopal Church South, in
session at Richmond, last week elected
the following Bishops: The Rev. Dr.
Win. Wallace Duncan, the Rev. Dr;
Charles B. Galloway, the Rev. Dr. Eu
gene Russell Hendrix and the Rev.
Dr. Joseph Stanton Key._It_will
afford .tho-^ghesF~gTatlfication to
-the''Methodists of our State to see
that it has been honored in the
selection of one of their ablest, most
eloquent and most beloved, ministers
to the office of Bishop, in Lhe?person of
Rev. Wm. Wallace Duncan, D. D. The
distinguished honor could have fallen
upon none more worthy to wear
the responsible robe of that office.
Bishop Duncan, we believe, was born
in Virginia, from which Stats he came
in youth with his distinguished father,
when the latter came to take a profes
sorship in Wofford College, Spartan
burg, which he filled with so much dis
tinction to the day of his death. Bishop
Duncan also filled a chair in the same
institute for many years, and for sev
eral years past has been the efficient
and successful agent of the College,
and by his eloquent appeals in its be
half has done much to place it upon a*
sure .mancial foundation. He is re
cognized as one of the most progressive
and eloquent preachers of the South,
and his indomitable energy will intro
duce an infusion of vigor into the
College of Bishops, which will aid it to
meet the demands which the rapidly
expanding interests of the church need
[ at this time. The newly elected Bishop
is the brother of Colonel D. R Duncan
I of Spartanburg, and of Colonel D. P.
Duncan, President of the State Agri
cultural Society and Railroad Commis
T??e Georgia Canvass.
The political campaign over in Geor
gia between General Gordon and Major
Bacon is waxing exceedingly warm.
At a meeting in Augusta last week
where a joint discussion was to have
taken place between the two rivals, the
crown refused to listen to General Gor
don and forced him to take his seat by
yelling for Major Bacon. We have no
particular interest in this Georgia
fight, and want our friends across the
Savannah to settle the matter to suit
themselves without any outside help(
but when a meeting undertakes to
silence charges against its favorite by
insulting an honored rival candidate,
we would warn it that it is on the
wrong track, and are doing its candi
date more harm than good. That Au
gusta meeting will make thousands of
friends for General Gordon, and a few
more such meetings will put him in the
Gubernatorial chair by an unpro?Bdeutr
ed majority. When Major Bacon failed
to get up at the meeting and rebuke
the crowd that were insulting his rival
he lost a golden opportunity to make
thousands of friends, not only in Geor
gia, but everywhere where justice is
recognized and fair play considered a
Another Job Sqnelched.
In the house on Thursday the bill to
appropriate 8800,000 for subsidies to
American steamship lines, already
passsd in the senate was defeated in the
committee of the whole by fifty-six
majority. The announcement of this
vote elicited round after round of ap
plause from the opponents of the
amendment and evidently rattled its
friends. When they came to the vote
in the house many of them changed
and the vote showed nearly eighty
majority against the amendment. This
caused another burst of applause.
Twenty-four republicans voted Against
the amendment, more than twice as
many as were expected to do so. On
the other hand the number of Demo
crats supporting the amendment was
unexpectedly small. Georgia voted
solidly against it. The only votes it
received from the South were those of
Tillman and Small, of South Carolina,
Blanchard and (Jay, of Louisiana. We
are glad that the Democratic House
squelched this Republican Senate job.
Tin- lteuson We are Poor,
The Greenwood correspondent of the
Tress and Banner has been getting up
some figures on the amount of groceries
sold by the merchants of that place
since the beginning of the present year,
and his figures are no doubt correct.
He says the following figures will show
the amount of groceries sold therefrom
1st January to 10th May: 57 car loads
corn, 22 car loads bacon, 9,560 bushels
meal, 2,391 barrels Hour and 445 barrels
molasses. There is not an article
enumerated in the above list but what
could have been raised right there in
the neighborhood. With such facts as
these staring us in the face should we
wonder that we are an impoverished
people, and that the cry of "hard times"
goes up from one end of the State to
the other. The idea of raising cotton
to buy meat and bread is so preposter
ous that it does seem that it would re
quire no argument to demonstate the
fact to our farmers. But somehow
they fail to see it.

In the Dispatch several issues past,
it was given as a rumor that Major
Wm. H. Brawley was mentioned as a
probable candidate for Congress from
the First District, so ably and energet
ically represented by the Hon. Samuel
Dibble. That rumor it seems had a
solid foundation, for it is now admitted
by Major Brawjey's-friends.-and-tt 'ls'
saidTm'rierTiis'recognition, that he will
be a candidate in opposition to Mr.
Dibble, and has so notified him. It is
true, that the Dispatch is in sympathy
with the movement for a new deal, stili
it does not favor a change of officials,
when it is not necessary for good and
sufficient reasons. Major Brawley is a
most courteous gentlemen, able lawyer,
and invaluable citizen, and would make
a most excellent congressman, because
of his thorough acquaintance with
public details, and his admitted healthy
patriotism. Thesestriking q ualifications
?however, cannot make his candidacy a
strong one with a large number of citi
zens, or capture the support of a suffici
ent number of followers to warrant the
belief that his candidacy will be suc
cessful. The reasons are, that Mr.
Dibble has proven an able and active
member of Congress, and has not been
found wanting in any public duty that
he knew to be his, or was brought to
his attention by any one of his consti
tuents. There is, therefore, in the]
judgment of the dispastionate citizen
no substantial cause to displace a rep-1
resentative known and proved to be j
good and efficient, merely to experi
ment with a new man, or to gratify a
whim of a few people, however worthy
and excellent they may be. Mr. Dib
ble richly deserves the consideration of
the people of this city, and of this en
tire district, and indeed of the whole
State; for there is no portion of the
people he has not willingly and at all
times served to the best of his appre
hension of their wants. The city of
Charleston is especially indebted to him
for the liveliest interest in all that has
effected her welfare since he has been
her representative. It needed but an in
timation from an individual or public |
body, to receive his aid in formulating
or executing any project of public good.
He is a true and faithful public
servant, and richly deserves the well
done of his constituency; and as far as
lies in the power and influence of the
Dispatch, he shall most assuredly get
what he merits.?Charleston Dispatch.
A Curiosity of Polities.
Among the. many changes in the I
political world one turn is most pecu-1
liar. Ex-United States Senator D. T.
Patterson, of Tennessee, and son-in-law
of ex-President.Tohnson, was on Thurs
day appointed postmaster of Home,
Green County, Tennessee. The place
is worth 8140 per year. Ex-Senator
Patterson was recommended by Senator
Witthorne, who was a clerk in the post
office department when Mr. Patterson
was in the senate. Thus, an ex-postal
clerk as a United States senator recom
mends an ex-senator for a postal place
hardly worth one month's salary of j
such a clerk. The people of Hornel
wished ex-Senator Patterson to take
the place, although he is a very old

The Supreme Arbiter of the universe,
whodoeth all ??ngs well, and before whose
decrees we should always bow with humble
Christian submission, having seen fit, in
His Inscrutable wisdom, to remove fiom
earthly scenes our beloved brother and
deacon, John Asbury Zeigler, and thansfcr
him to the courts of eternity, it is proper
that we, as a church, should give some ex
pression of our appreciation of his virtues,
and place on record a brief sketch, at least,
of his life and character.
Brother Zeigler was born in Orangeburg
County on the 14th of November, 1833, and
died at his home in our town on the 3rd of
May, 188C, in the 53rd year of his age.
Dnrlng his early manhood, the war be
tween the States commenced, and in obedi-1
ence to convictions of duty and the call of |
patriotism, he took up arms in defence of
home, and discharged his duty faithfully
and conscientiously as a Confederate sol
dier to the end of that lamentable strug
During the war, he was horn again to
newness of life in Christ Jesus, our Lord,
and was baptized by Rev. .0. \\*. Whilden.
In 1S70, he was elected Superintendent of]
our Sunday School, an office which he held
up to the day of his death. In 1**4, in con- ]
sequence of failing health, he desired to
resign this office, but so greatly was he be
loved by teachers, officers and chihired that
Ins wishes were overruled, and he was
continued in the position, and the active
duties of the office were transferred to an
assistant. In October, 1S7U, he was ordain-1
cd a deacon. It will thus he seen that he
was twenty-five years a member of the
Baptist Church, and over fifteen years dea
con and Sunday School Superintendent.
In commenting upon the character of the
subject of this sketch, it is not our intention
to indulge in fulsome eulogy. It is our de
sire only to record facts which all our hearts |
can fully attest. To say that brother Zeig
ler was a good and honest man, is but to |
echo the sentiment of the entire community
in which he lived. And what more could
we say? Only this?and that the highest
eulogy that mortals can receive?the testi
mony of the church, that he was a Christian.
As a citizen, he was conscientious, houcst
and true; as a soldier, he was faithful and
brave, but, as a Christian, he tiuged all the I
other relations of life with a halo of celes* |
tial beautv, holding up his Lord and Mas
ter Jrsus Christ, so that all who look might
Although our brother has been removed
front us, he has left us a legacy in his
Christian character. This life is but a jour
ney to an unending one that lies befere us,
and, in the weary pilgrimage,
"Our dim eyes ask a beacon, and our weary
feet a guide,
And our souls of all life's mysteries, seek
the meaning and the key;
Lo ! a cross gleams o'er our pathway?on
it hangs the Crucified?
And He answers all onr yearnings by the
whisper, "Folllow Mc!"
Our brother heard, obeyed and followed
this gentle whisuer. Like him, may we,
too, obev the sweet wooiugs of the Cruci
fied one", and find peace beyond the river.

Died suddenly, in Orangebure County,
May 8th, 1886, Mn. Jebemiah Riley, in
the seventy-ninth year of his age. In early
life he gave himself t? Christ, joined
Antloch Baptist Churm, and was baptized
by Rev. Thomas Adams, shortly after
wards he joined the Four Holes Baptist
Church, and remained an active member
thereof-for many years. He united with
others in constituting Walnut Grove Bap
tist Church, and remained a consistent and
useful member of said church until his
death. As a deacon for many years, he
discharged his duties faithfully. All who
knew him respected and esteemed him for
his many virtues. As a citizen, neighbor
and friend, a galaxy of amiable qualities
cluster around Iiis character. Ever ready
to discharge the duties of life promptly and
faithfully?kind, benevolent and sincere,
admired'for his integrity. In his domestic
relations, he possessed many excellencies
worthy of imitation, a devoted husband
and an indulgent parent. As a professor
of religion, humble, sincere and devout.
For manv years he was an active member
of the Charleston Baptist Association, and
took a deep interest in its deliberations; ever
zealous for the advancement of Christ's
Kingdom, and for his own growth in piety.
He lived to see many of his children occu
pying prominent positions in the church;
beloved for their zeal and usefulness.
In his death, Walnut Grove Church has
lost an exemplary member, and the com
munity a bright Christian light. He has)
passed away, leaving a record without a
stain. Another sheaf has been gathered
into God's great garner, for he was truly
ripe for the harvest, He has gone to rest.
He has left a devoted wife, many children
and friends to mourn their irreparable loss.
May God sustain and comfort them in their
bereavement. "Blessed are the dead, who
die in the Lord." D. W. C.

THE SUCCESSFUL CAREER OF
the Mutual Reserve Fund Life Asso
ciation 5s marvellous in the annals of. life
insurance enterprise. Its name has be
come a tower of strength, and has been
well earned by the untiring devotion_o?_
President Harper and his associates. Its
astonishing prosperity has provoked attaclis
which are best repelled by a frank and full
exhibit of its greatly increasing line of
business. Up to July 1,1885, this shows a
gain of no less than ?13 214,580 over that
of the corresponping period last year.
In June alone its mortuary receipts ex
ceeded ?250,000, of which over ?60,000 went
into the Reserve Fund?that triple buttress
upon which the association justly prides
itself. This reserve now amounts to 3425,
000, and is employed for three purposes
onl- -to pay death claims, if any should
occur in excess of the American Fpperience
Mortality Tables; to make good any poss
ible deficiency in the Death Fund Account,
and to bo apportioned among those who
have been members of the Association fif
teen years, etc. As the first and second
contingencies named are not likely to arise,
the third object is the one upon which the-'
fimd is practically expended. It is full of
other good points, among which may bo
mentioned the economical salary list?less
than 850,000 for carrying on the whole work
of the vast institution?and payments to
widews and orphans at tho rate of over
?2,000 cash eash day.?From the old and
