Lock Box No. 11(5, OranKCburg, S. G.
The late Democratic State Conven
tion was one of the finest looking
bodies of men ever assembled in this
State, and it did its work hormonious
ly and well. -
The unanimous renomination of
Cromptroller-General W.'E. Stony was
a well deserved compliment to a most
excellent gentleman and thoroughly
efficient officer. We congratulate him.

It is rather soon to be talking about
the Presidential outlook for 'bb, Lint the
Washington correspondent of the
Richmond State predicts that the
?'coming man" will be from the West,
and that the team will be Morrison, of
Illinois, ami Hill, of New York.
Tnosr who think that the farmers'
movement is dead because Governor
Sheppard was not renominated are mak
ing an egregious error. The farmers
made no united effort on Sheppard,
the vote he received was not a criter
ion of their strength in the State Con
vention by any means.
It is said that the Republicans of
Berkeley, realizing that that county is
no longer overwhelmingly Republican,
are about to propose a compromise
ticket in the coming campaign, but
that the Democrats, confident of victo
ry, give the idea little encouragement,
and will, probably, reject it.
President Cleveland deserves the
plaudits of every true patriot for the
manly stand 'he has taken against
extravagance and corruption in his
vetoes of pension and other plunder
ing schemes. lie stands as a grand
bulwark against the public robbers
and in this line, must be truly appreci

While there is no doubt that Col.
Rice, the nominee for State Superin
tendent of Education, will make an
excellent officer and give entire satis
faction, great regrets are felt for the
defeat of Col. Coward, who taking the
office under pressure has certainly suf
fered in his private interest in conse

withal, been faithful, conscientious
and efficient in the discharge of his
We would like to know why there is
so much hostility exhibited towards
Charleston by some sections of the
State? As the metropolis of the State,
we should all take pride in building
her up, but instead of doing so it seems
to be the delight of some sections to
pull her down. Charleston is a grand
(dd city, lull of good people, and she
shall never need an outside friend to
defend her as long as The Times and
Democrat is under its present
Ix the State Convention slips were
distributed showinir the relativ?; gains
and losses to the several counties
under the Greenville idea. By it we"
noticed that Orangeburg County would
gain one delegate and from this fact,
no doubt, it was expected that our
delegates would favor the political
rape, but we are glad they did not.
()rang:dmrg is jealous of her dues, but
not to the extent of robbing other
counties. The present arrangement
suits us well enough.
Tin; Republican Senate, it will be
remembered, refused to confirm the
nomination of James 0. Matthews,,
colored, of Albany, New York, to be
Recorder of Deeds for Washington
District. Now that Congress has ad
journed, however, Cleveland has taken
it upon himself to appoint him 'any
how. Here we have a conspicuous ex
ample of a Republican Senate refusing
to give ollice to a colored man, and of a
Democratic President insisting upon,
and doing it. These are things, how
ever, that colored people don't general
The State Convention.
The work of the Democratic State
Convention will commend itself to the
Democracy of the State. The. candi
dates put in the held are in every way
worthy of the honor conferred upon
them and will lie triumphantly elected
by the people. As will he noticed, the
Convention has given us almost a new
deal, only two of the old State officers
' being- renoininated for the positions
they now hold. It is true, Col. Richard
son is one of the present ollicers, but
we believe that he owes his nomina
tion to the fact that he was opposed
by the present Governor, who was
seeking a renoniination, and, this be
ing the case, he can.also be classed as a
new deal man. Altogether the ticket
is a most admirable one. aud will be
enthusiastically endorsed all over the
State. The Convention,which was truly
a representative body, was very con
servative in all of its actions, and re
fused by very ^decisive votes to make
any radical changes in the laws govern
ing the party. The attempt on the
part of some of the up-country dele
gates to rob the low country of its fair
representation in the councils of the
party met with the defeat it so richly
deserved. We hope this will be the
last attempt of the up-country to
throttle the low country. Such a thing
can never be brought about, from the
fact that men love justice too much to
permit such an outrage to be perpetra
ted on this section of the State, and for
this reason, if no other, this attempt
at political rape should be abandoned
by our Greenville friends, who seem to
be the leaders in the movement. The
Convention, by voting this measure
down decisively, put its seal of con
demnation upon the sectional howl
that has been coining down from some
parts of the up-country for a long
time, and we hope it will be the means
of stopping this ceaseless* nslaugh on
this section of the State. All we ask
is our just rights, and we are certain
that we will take nothing less.
AUthe lccent Demoeratic Coevcntion,
held m Columbia, eight of the delegates
from Oraugeburg saw lit, for reasons
best known to themselves, to oppose
the uoniinatiou of Mr. Miles for the At
torney Generalship of the State; and
this, our esteemed friends of the News
and Courier, calls a "defection" and
rather chides Orangeburg for ingratitude
because Mr. Dibble has received the
unanimous vote of Charleston three
times as the Democratic candidate for
Congress. We do not know what mo
tive the eight delegates had in view
when casting their votes for a candidate
competing with Mr. Miles before the
Convention, but their right to do so is
plain, aud the fact that they did exer
cise such a right is no reason why
Oraugeburg should be charged with
ingratitude to Charleston. Especially
does it come with bad grace from that
quarter, when it is remembered that
the Hon. M. P. O'Connor received the
entire Democratic vote of Oraugeburg
from the beginning of his career to the
end; that Judge Prcssley who presides
over tho First Circuit to-day received
the support of the Orangeburg delcga
gation in the Legislature; and that the
Democrats of Oraugeburg have given
Solicitor Jervey an undivided vote from
the historic campaign of '7C dowu to the
present time. We do not see, there
fore, how the failure of Mr. Miles to re
ceive the vote of eight delegates can
constitute a "defection" or the abandon
ing of a candidiate or duty by Orauge
burg, nor do we understand the implied
charge of ingratitude iu (he face of the
facts above,?all we do see is the sim
ple exercise of a preference on the part
of these gentlemen aud uothing more.
Orangeburg is no political apostate and
Charleston will continue to support Mr.
Dibble so long as he continues to prove

Trouble with Mexico.
Ucccnt events seem to indicate that
this government is on the eve of anoth
er war with our sister Republic of Mex
ico iu consequence of the arrest on
United Suites soil, trial and punishment
of Editor Cutting for committing a crime
in his own country aud the killing of
one Asscsures by Mexican officials,
both of whom are accredited citizens?of
the United States. We are willing to
leave the matter in the hands of Secre
tary Bayard, who is both manly aud
wise and sufficiently jealous of the honor
ot his country to see that she sutlers no
indignity at the hands of another govern
ment. It does not matter whether Mr.
Cutting is an adventurer or Mr. Asscs
ures is a profligate, so they are citizens
of this country and wronged, they should
be protected by their government, and
the South is willing and ready to do her
full part iu giving Mexico a second
thrashing if it be needed.
Under this caption the Rock Hill
Herald published the following article,
which would seem to require some
explanation from senator Hampton.
If any man has been made much id' by
the press it, is Hampton, and it looks
pretty rough to get such treatment in
return. The editor of the Abbeville
Press and Banner says that while the
members of the Press Association were
in Washington they were treated cor
dially by all the South Carolina repre
sentatives except Senator Hampton.
Our Abbeville contemporary says:
"Senator Hampton, although he
boarded at the house where we stop
ped, spoke to but few of us. One of
our party, not being willing to return
home without speaking to him, sent up
his card. The Senator in reply told
the servant to tell him he (Hampton)
was not in his room. A member of
the Press Association heard the Sena
tor give this instruction to the ser

Shot by a JeuloiiK Lover.
Logaxsport, Ind., August 2.?AtI
8 o'clock this morning a young man
named Arthur O'Brien drove to the
residence of Thomas McDeuah, in
Wayne Township, Fulton County sever
al miles North of here. He walked into
the McDeuah residence and engaged in
conversation with Miss Xewbaugh, a
young woman who had been stopping
at McDcnah's house for several weeks"
O'Brien has been keeping company
with Miss Xewbaugh for the past year,
and his visit tins morning was looked
upon as nothing unusual by either Mc
Dcnah or his family. After the two
had talked together a short time the re
ports of a revolver were heard, and Miss
Xewbaugh ran out of the house scream- j
ing. ''I'm shot!" Several members of
the McDeuah family started alter her.
and when caught it was found that ]
O'Brien had shot her in the right arm
and in the face, just below the right eye.
He then fired a bullet into his own head

a Full Vindication of Dr. Bleyuardie.
When the rumors concerning Dr.
Mcynardic were atloat in the com
munity, the Dispatch could not, in the
face of his recognised piety and learn
ing, give them countcuancc. That the
position of this paper was the correct
one has been proven by the reccul rigid,
and yet calm investigation .nude at the
instance of (he church by eminent min
isters "Oimected therewith. These
ministers were the Rev. 0. A. Darby,
D. D., Rev. Thos. G. Herbert. Rev. J.
Marion Boyd, and Rev. S. B. Jones.
D. D., all Presiding Elders. They met
at Trinity Church Parsonage, in this
city, under appointment of of Bishop
John C. Kecuen, and called every wit
ness' who could possibly throw light on
the case. What has been the result?
Exactly what conservative sentiment
believed would be, and that is, that Dr.
Meyuardic's character has upon it no
stain of immorality; that whatever ncr-l
viucs and opiates he uses arc necessary
to his health, and arc taken medic nally.
under the direction of a skilled physician.
This result is exceedingly gratifying to
the community in which Dr. Mcynardic
has labored so faithfully and zealously

THE FATE OF A DRUMMER.
His Skeleton Unearthed in 1 lie Yard of a
House of 111 Fame.
Atlanta, Ga., 0.?Early yesterday
morning workmen sinking a water main
on Collins street unearthed the skeleton
of a man, and now the police depart
ment, aided by the oldest inhabitant, is*
taking a careful retrospective view of
the past fifteen years.
The house which covers No. 17. on
South Collins street, is a large two
story building, and for years past has
been the property of Lizzie. Clifton, a
woman who paid semi-annual visits to
the courts of Fulton County to answer
indictments returned by the grand jury.
Several months ago. however, the house
became vacant, but on account of the un
savory Iacallty tenants were not abun
dant. Two or three weeks ago. however.
Madame Abbic Howard, who has been
on Line street for years, found it ne
cessary to vacate her place, and at the
same time leased No. 17 Collins street.
Soou after perfecting the lease she be
gau improving the place. The carpen
ter was put to work, and when the
souud of the saw and hammer ceased,
the painter appeared with his brush.
The building was given a handsome
modern color and the gas plumber and
water meter men were put to
work. Hay before yesterday the water
pipes were led up to the fcuce inclosiug
the front yard, and yesterday morning
when the men resumed work they be
gan di T just inside the front yard.
For an uour or two their work went
along with the usual monotony attend
ing the work of digging in the earth.
About Id o'clock, however, when one
of the men threw out a shovel of dirt
something white and hard showed its
self upon the ground. At first the man
paid no attention to it. but when it re.
sisted his shovel he stooped down, and
in removing it, found that it was a bone.
The bone, too, proved to be a hu
man bone, aud beside it another was
found. This. too. was lifted out. and
another was found. When the third
bone was picked up the workman called
the attention of others to it, and an
examination of the ground was made.
The examination showed more bones,
and the work of laying the pipe ceased
temporarily, and the men began hunt
ing lor bones. The search was kept up
for a half hour, and as bone after bone
was removed they were placed together
until linaily the complete skeleton of a
man?skull, arms, legs, breastbones,
toes, lingers, and till were accumulated.
This caused quite a commotion among
the men, and a messenger was sent to
poiice headquarters and an officer re
sponded to the call.
The intelligence of the discovery went
over the city, and iu a short time many
rumors of all kinds were in circulation.
One was to the efi'ect that the skeleton
was that ol a stranger who disappear
ed iu Atlanta in 1*72. A man who is
now a butcher, but who was a member
of the police force in '72. says that dur
ing that year a New York drummer
Lpamed Yewell came to Atlanta and
?topped at the American hotel. One
evening he left the hotel without his
baggage, but his absence was not ob
served until friends from Now York
came to haut him up. His baggage
was still at the hotel, but nothing more
was ever heard of the drummer. The
cx-pollceman says that an opinion pre
vailed at that time that the drummer
bad been foully dealt with, and yester
day said that he would uot be' surprised
to know that the bones were from the
skeleton of the man.
Captain F. AV. Dawiwn and IS. It. Tlllniau
Meet in Augustu.
Columbia, S. C, Aug. 5.?The
correspondent ot the Augusta Chronicle
in writing about the Stale Convention
says: Oue night in June last Capt. F.
W. Dawsou, of Charleston, and Capt.
13. It. Tilltnan, of Edgeficld, met at the
Globe Hotel in Augusta and held a loug
conference. Their presence was known
iu Augusta at-the time. It was soon
noised in Carolina (hat the meeting had
taken place and the fact was mentioned
a hundred times in this couventiou.
lJoili gentlemen have repudiated any
idea of a combination. Captain Tilltnan
declares that he is only seeking agricul
tural reforms and is not responsible for
the political movement. Captain Daw
son says that he is supporting the Till
mau reforms only so far as they affect
the farmers. What they talked about
on that clear, calm night, no one knows,
but the rumors growing out of the con
ference have shaped this convention and
changed the personnel of the Stale ticket
entirely. The meeting of the highlands
aud low lands was not relished by the
claus, and the rumored combination
has been laid very low. As for Gov.
Sheppard, he is a young man with a line
practice at law. He has a long future
and a bright one. He was thrust into
the canvass by forces which he did not
control. Edgeficld has made a gallant
fight and the Chronicle regrets the over
throw. The Tilltnan element has not
played a leading part. Their caucus
decided to support no candidate as a
body, leaving the farmer delegates to
sustain their individual preferences.
Tillmau made a gallant fight for hi?
disthlguised county man, but' failing in
this, he did uol attempt to dictate a
choice of candidates. Richardson aud
most of the nominees have uot been iu
sympathy with the Tilltnan movement
as many ol the State politicians under-1
stood it, but the farmers' agitation is
not without its good cll'ccts. although it
has been too violent and extreme in
some of its features to command support
from the Stale at large. Many of the
planks ol the Tillmau platform are
sound and strong, and a* far as it looks
for the better education ami enlighten
ment of farmers, it will be helpful, not
