From all we can learn we believe
that Mr. Dibble will be renominated

is but a just tribute to his energy, and
ability as a Congressman. He is the
right man in the right place.

Notwithstanding the efforts of
the county officials to defeat it, Colle

The editor of The Times and
Democrat has no favors to ask of
the people of Orangeburg County so
far as office is concerned. He is not a

worker, embued with the pardonable
ambition of making a success of his
calling. So, if the people of Orange
burg County wish to testify their good
will toward him they can not do it in
a more appreciative manner than by
helping to extend the circulation of
the journal which he has the honor of
The News and Courier announced
la.st week the death of Capt, 1$. W\
Tomlinson, of Xew York, who was at
one time on the editoriajl staff of that
journal. The News and Courier says
Capt. Tomlinson was a thoroughly
trained journalist and a von charm

pleasantly remembered, and was im
mortalized in a joke which was pub
lished at the time that he was attacked
by a colored member of the Legislature

County Tt-iicherV Institute.
In another column will be seen the
notice of our .School Commissioner for
a County Institute for white teach
ers to commence in the city of Orange
burg August 30th, and continue one
week. An able faculty has been se
cured, distinguished teachers have
been invited, and there is every
promise of a most profitable time for
the teachers of the County and for the
public generally. Board has been put
at such a reasonable rate that no
teacher who takes any pride in the pro
fession can let so trilling an item of
cost stand in the way of so excellent an
opportunity for improvement. These
County Teachers' Institutes are of in
calculable benefit to the cause of educa
tion. We believe they are more useful
than the State Institutes, because they
come nearer to the teachers and reach
a greater number. Teachers, as a class,
are poor, and many of them cannot
alford to attend the State Institutes.
But the County Institutes are within
their reach and means and they ought
to attend them. Many of our country
teachers have not the means of travel
ing and observing the methods of the
best and mcst advanced teachers.
Here these advantages are brought to
their very door, and they will not be
true to themselves, to the children over
whose educational training they pre
side, and to the community in which
"they live if they neglect thein. School
Trustees and patrons throughout the
County should use their influence to
get all the teachers up to this Institute.
The citizens, too, of the city of Orange
burg, should, and we believe will, do
their duty in encouraging them and
giving them a hearty welcome. Teach
ers, come up and spend a pleasant and
profitable week within our gates.
The following article which we clip
from the Columbia Record and change
to suit our locality is published for the
benefit of our voters, who we hope will
peruse it attentively. In little more
than a month from now the primary
election of the Democratic party for
Orangeburg county will take place.
This will afford a reasonable time for
the claims of the respective candidates
to be presented to tho people and lor
the latter to make up their minds
whom they will vote for. Each indi
vidual Democrat will have the oppor
tunity to express his choice for each of
the county officers that have heretofore
been nominated by the county conven
tions, and if all the Democratic voters
in the county turnout and vote there
is no doubt that the result will be the
choice of the majority. The plan
adopted by the Executive Committee
is substantially the same as thnt which
Lsas tola! ml m'Qsomwh-wtis?cz..
tion iu other counties. The responsi
bility of selecting good county officers
is now no longer on delegates to a con
vention, but rests with the rank and
file of the Democracy of Orangeburg.
This is no small matter, and it behooves
them to be very careful in discharging
the duty. Let them guard against the
arts of the politician and the preten
sions of the demagogue, and endeavor
to ascertain who will make the most
efficient and faithful public servants.
Every attempt by a candidate or his
friends to gain votes by questionable^
means should be frowned down by
public opinion, which is the only cor
rector and punisher of such abuses in a
nominating primary; indeed, it is the
ultimate safe guard of purity in elec
tions generally. This is the people's
plan of choosing their public servants
and it is for the people to find out and
correct all its imperfections. Experi
enc9 is as essential in the art of self
government as it is in any other art,
and we doubt not but that the Demo
crats of Orangeburg will learn by ex
perience how to guard against every
abuse to which a primary election is
Texas lias the War Fever.
The ease of editor Cutting, of El
Paso, who has been siezed by the Mexi
can Government and imprisoned, has
got our Texas friends terribly worked
up. The case seems to be a very sim
ple one. Cutting, after denouncing
his rival. Medina, and being forced to
apologize by the Mexican officials,came
over the river to El Paso, and there
published a reiteration of his charges
against Medina and challenged him, in
violation of the American law. The
government is looking after his rights,
but he appears to be a rather unworthy
hero of an international incident, and,
in the language of the New York Star,
we would advise our friends in Texas
to keep cool. The weather in the
neighborhood of Dallas and Port
Worth must be very sultry, an 1 the
valuable citizens of Texas might spend
their time much more usefully than in
cultivating perspiration. The fact is,
in our opinion, that altosrother too
much fervor is squandered in this Cut
ting affair. We begin to perceive a
deliberate plan on Cutting's part to
do a little trading on the situation, and
it is borne in upon us that (.'Utting is
perhaps a person whom the Tinted
States is under no obligation to coddle,
certainly not to quarrel about, Several
circumstances point to this conclusion,
and conspicuous among them is Cut
ting's refusal to accept bail. The ac
counts we iiad received of Cutting's
loathsome prison, the vision we had
nourished of chains and manacles and
cruelty?these were rudely shocked by
the announcement that the victim had
been offered his freedom and had de
clined the opportunity. We received
the impression that Cutting's captivity
was not so grievous as we had thought
and that Cutting's plans- included a
good deal of posturing as a martyr.
And when we add to this the very seri
ous doubt whether Cutting has been
outraged at all?the dawning appre
hension that the Mexican authorities
have perhaps treated him exactly as he
deserved?it occurs to us that the coun
try had liiuch better slow down on
Cutting's grievances. One thing is
very certain : Our Texas friends may
make themselves perfectly sure that if
the smallest indignity or wrong has
been put upon an American citizen,
this government will iissert itscdf in
the most conclusive fashion. Mr.
Cleveland does not intend to'occur for
his administration the reproach of in
difference to the rights, the pence and
the welfare of the citizen, und it is be
yond any question that the State De
partment is conducting all its opera
tions upon that basis. Our Texa.
friends will be quite safe in cultivating
a confident tranquillity of temper
pending the action of the government.
If Mr. Cutting has been imposed upon,
the most abundant reparation will be
exacted. If, on the contrary, he is
merely a mischievous and disreputa
ble adventurer, who, having defied the
laws and outraged the hospitality- of
Mexico, is now endeavoring to profit
by the errors and misrepresentations
growing out of the imbroglio, we as
sume that most .sensible and fair-mind
ed people will be glad to sec him treat
A Bellow from ISnll SwMiU]?.
Editor Times and Democrat:
As the Convention has announced
the time and plan for holding County
elections, it is but just and fair, that
the voters should be informed, squarely
and openly, by candidates, (especially'
those for the general assembly,) how
they stand upon important questions
that directly affect the people's, pocket.
The nominees to the State nominating
Convention, were asked to define their
position on several subjects before a
vote was taken, and; so should the
forth-coming candidates. No room
should be allowed for dodging. We
want to know exactly the settled,
finally established opinion of every
man who seeks authority to spend the
people's money. Then, if we elect him,
we have a hand in the job, whether for
good or evil.
The farmers, who are the back-bone
of the country, are complaining?have
a just right to complain, but, s they
ought to remember, that "its all their
own doings." They elect our law
makers. Then why not elect siuih as
are in accordance with their views and
their interests. Nor, should /they

such men as are known to be directly
interested in their calling and elect
them to assist in making our laws.
Then, and not until then, will the
down-trodden farmer have his load
lightened, and be able "to smoke cigars"
and "wear good clothes" like other pro
Pleasant smiles, high-pressure hand
shaking and great interest in your
wife and children's health, can't keep

watchfulness, and, more than all, less
expenditure of the people's money,
thereby decreasing office-holding arid
I trust that the men elected from
this County will have well-known
ideas of retrenchment and reform.
That they will consider seriously the
many leaks which are continually
draining our treasury, and the many
privations and "big drops of sweat"
that are required to keep it running.
They should never forget "that little
drops of water make the. mighty ocean,"
that camparitively small" sums here,
