JAMES L. SIMS,
Lock Box No. 116, Orangeburg, S. C. .
No man can be a safe leader in a new
movement like the farmers' who has a
political hatchet to grind. To be use
ful in any cause, one must practice
A card published in the Chester Re
porter, July 1, nominates Rev. E. J.
Meynardie, D. D.. for State Superinten
dent of Education. We hope Brother
Meynardie will let politics alone, and
attend to his preaching.
With the primary system of nomi
nating candidates every tub stands on
its own bottom, and if a fellow is left
at home he must not get mad, as the
people has only given him a little inti
mation that his services are not need
It would not be a bad idea for those
papers that have been howling so over
the acquittal of Fergerson in Abbev'lle
to give some attention to the acquittal
of Dr. Rellinger in Charleston. The
only difference we can see is that Fer
gerson killed a white man and Dr.
Bellinger killed a negro.
The President signed the bill restor
ing General Fitz John Porter to the
army from which lie was unjustly dis
missed. For years he has been a pa
tient, suffering martyr, and now, in
his old age, he is vindicated. We con
gratulate the government that it has
at last done him partial justice.
It is said that Mr. Randall's tariff
bill raises the duty on clothing and re
duces the tax on tobacco and whiskey.
Well, we rather think this is putting
the cart before the horse. Why not let
the tax on whiskey and tobacco remain
as it is and lower the duty on clothing
and other articles of prime necessity ?
The Greenville Xews thinks that
? Capt. B. R. Tillman should be a mem
ber of the no t Legislature, and savs
it.is hard to understand how he can

Wte notice on one of the numerous
State tickets floating around the press
the name of Gen. Jas. F. Izler for At
torney-General. We have no idea that
General Izlar would accept the nomi
nation if offered him, but the State
could get no better Attorney-General
than he would make if he was called
to the position.
Colonel John Peter Richardson,
Gen. John Bratton, Colonel W. C.

Occasionally we feel called upon,
to do a little missionary work with the
Xews and Courier, and when it howls
out about punishing men for com-'
mitting murder we feel encouraged.
But unfortunately its spasm'of virtue
does not last long, and we soon find it
very easy on a murderer who is just
about as guilty as those it wanted
The Augusta Chronicle says that
Mayor Courtenay's little "booinlct" for
the Governorship seems to have died i
out simultaneously with Iiis departure
for Europe. It lasted until he reached
New York. Generous Bob ITemphill
has published a letter from the Mayor
lately, written just before he left Char
leston, but this was doubtless done to
let the "boom" down easily and pre
vent an explosion.
The Senate Committee has declined,
by a large majority, to recommend the
confirmation of Matthews to succeed
Fred Douglass, ;ts Recorder of Deeds
for the District of Columbia. The
ostensible reason assigned is that
Matthews is not a citizen of the Dis
trict, but the real reason is said to be
the hostility of the Republican Sena
tors to Democratic negroes. Matthews
was rejected on a party vote, all the
Republicans voting against him.
Sexatou Hale seems to be of the
opinion that the President is undigni
fied and trivial in preventing small
peculations in the form of fraudulent
pension bills, and that he might to rise
to the sublime height of Maine states
manship and favor the abstraction of
millions from the public treasury, to
be given'away as subsidies. At the
last Presidential election the country
'decided in favor of honesty in all tilings,
both groat and small, and against the
Maine statesmanship in which Mr.
Hale is forced to believe. Honesty is
never undignified and trivial.
Our Martyred Dead.
Orangeburg County is one of the few
counties in the State that has no monu
ment to commemorate the heroism and
gallantry of her sons who fell in the
defence of Southern liberty and self
government. Amid the carnage of
war no braver or truer men followed
the fortunes of the "Lost Cause" than
the gallant and patriotic sons of this
grand old county, and none laid down
their lives more willingly than they did
in defence of this just and righteous
cause. It is true that the banner that
these noble and chivalrous spirits laid
down their lives to uphold has been
"furled forever," and the cause for
which they fought and died has been
crushed by the stern arbitrament of
arms, yet their memories live, and will
live as long as our men and women
are true to their God, to their country
and to themselves. Such bravery and
heroism as they displayed, cannot die.
Though we refuse to do our duty by
neglecting to erect a monument to
their memory or. decorate their graves
with sweet flowers, the deeds of these
noble, self-sacrificing patriots will not
be forgotten, but will be handed down
from generation to generation, and
our children's children will be taught
that no braver or more heroic band of
patriots ever went forth to battle for
home and liberty than the Confederate
soldier. With these sentiments inspir
ing us, we were glad to see that the
second regiment of artillery at its re
cent reunion tit Branchville had deter
mined to move in the matter, and take
steps to erect a monument at this place
to the Confederate dead of our county.
It is a movement in which the pro
jectors should have the worm support
of all of our people. This matter has
been neglected too long already, and
now that the surviving comrades of
our martyred dead have determined to
remove this reproach from our county,
let us all fall in and go to work, and
never cease until a monument second to
none in the State is reared tn com
memorate the virtues and heroic deeds
of Orangeburg's martyred dead. We
assure the committee of the hearty and
willing support of this paper in their
praiseworthy and noble work.
The Democratic Party ami the Farmers.
So far as we are concerned, we are
perfectly willing to trust the destinies
of the Democratic party of the county
to the farmers. They have always been
true to the best interests of the county
and State, and we do not see why any
one should feel the least alarm about
the present movement. As taxpayers
they should take a lively interest in
public affairs, and the fact that they
are doing so is one of the most hopeful
signs of the future. Let the farmers
come to the Democratic Convention
with well formulated plans for carry
ing into operation their views, and they
will have no trouble in executing them.
Majority rule is the fundamental prin
ciple upon which the Democratic party
is built, and the farmers being largely
in the majorty in the party, have a
right to rule its counsels, and no good
Democrat lias a right to object to this,
as the minute he does so he ceases to be
a Democrat. This being the case, we
say to the farmers of Orangeburg
County, elect your very best men to
represent you in the County Conven
tion which meets on the 22d instant. K
needs be, instruct these delegates to
pursue a certain policy to carry out
your views. In this [way you can do
what you please, and put in the offices
whom you please. We would advise the
fanners, however, to shun deinogogues
and take as leaders men of their calling
who are successful in their business.
Men who claim to be farmers, but who
do not demonstrate the fact by a suc
cessful career on the farm arc hardly
the men to lead us out of the wilder
ness. These men arc place hunters,
and it makes no difference to them how
they secure it. Our farmers should be
represented by the most, successful of
An Editors Duty.
Amid all the conflicting elements of
life, the editor has a hard time of it.
What to do under till circumstances
often perplexes Iiis mind. Policy dic
tates one thing, principle another. In
tegrity suggests one course, and ex
pediency suggests another. What then
must he do? The editor who "rifles
the fence," on any subject, sooner or
later comes to grief. Expediency will
serve him but for u season. The path
of honor and truth, is the path for him
to tread. He must walk in the path of
duty in the fear of no man. He must
"do good and eschew" evil, and ever
stand up and speak out boldly for the
good, the true and the pure, and always
against the wrong and the impure, and
have no thought for the consequences;
God will take care of them. Let the
editor pursue this course, and he can
laugh at criticism, for then he will
know that the path of duty is the only
path of safety. The editor who does
not follow this course, will lind out
that his work is a failure. This is the
course we have worked out for our
sslves. and despite whatever may cross
i our path, we intend with God's help to
I wall; in it. We intend to speak the
? truth in advocating the right and cou
: dimming the wrong; to "hew to the line
j let the chips fall whore they may." with
I malice toward none. If this does not
suit anybody, we can't help it. The
above from the Sumtcr Advance states
! the position of the editor so well, that
we transfer it to our columns in toto.
It expresses our sentiments exactly.
The Telephone Investigation.
The resolution reported by the ma
jority of the Pan Electric Congression
al investigating committee declares
emphatically the conclusion already
reached by all impartial people who
have followed the investigation. Not
a fact has been brought to light that
gives any reason for questioning the
integrity or the honor of any of the
federal officers connected with the Pan
Electric Company. Mr. Hale, who does
not concur with the other Democrats
in the whole of the report, joins in re
porting this resolution. This fact
shows how maliciously the Bell tele
phone organs have misrepresented that
gentleman's position. The resolution
will doubtless be adopted by a party
vote in the House, since the Republi
cans appear determined to make a par
ty matter of the charges. Meanwhile,
however, the suit will go on, and the
desperate effort made by the Bell com
pany and its organs to scare the ad
ministration into abandoning it will
fail. The manifest fright of the BeB
people gives some reason to hope that
the public may be relieved from the
burden now imposed upon it by this
Some of the North Carolina papers
oppose the "all tobacco" theory as
strongly as the South Carolina'papers
lo the "all cotton" theory. The Win
ston Progressive Farmer expresses as
its opinion that "it is only a question
of time when the great bulk of those
who raise tobacco, to the neglect of
home supplies, will be in the hands of
the sheriff." The Danbury Reporter
brings the figures to bear as follows:
"It is estimated that the work required
to grow 100 pounds of tobacco on new
ground, worth in many cases not more
than 85, will produce 25 bushels of
corn, which is worth almost any year
825, yet many people say that tobacco
is the only money crop.. The true
theory is to make home supplies the
main object, and then devote what at
tention you can to money crops. When
our farmers do this there will be no
use for the lien law._
Bull vs. Mule.
The Darlington News mentions that
a diversified specimen of advanced
farming was seen in that town recent
ly from the farm of Capt. P. Whipple,
being a registered Holstein bull draw
ing a cart loaded with wool from
Southdown sheep. This is a good deal
better than a Kentucky mule drawing
from town an Ohio wagon loaded with
Virginia hay, Chicago meat, Indiana
corn and Minnesota flour, with a little
North Carolina tobacco, all to be tjsed
in making a little 8 cent cotton. Jy.et
us have a little more of the bull and the
wool in this country.
Some of the papers speak of Gover
nor Thompson's elevation in alluding
to his appointment" as Assistant Sec
retary of the Treasury at Washington.
We fail to see the elevation. As a
State Rights Democrat we think the
Governorship of South Carolina a more
elevated position than an Assistant
Secretary of the United States Treasury,
Taste will differ about such things
Ix Halifax, Nova Scotia, the voters
have learned the art of stealing and
stuffing ballot-boxes and counting in
their candidates. They justify their
conduct on the ground that the same
thing was done in America a few years

beneficiary of the office of President
with the advice and consent of the
United States Senators.
