Gen. E. W. Moise, of Sunder, and

spoken of as Democratic candidates for
the nomination for Congress from the
It is not fair for candidate or news
paper to pitch into a candidate just be
fore the election when the person at

ware of insinuations and charges made
in such a way.
The South Carolina Republicans are
playing possum. They think by ab
staining altogether from politics for a
few years that the Democrats will be
come divided, and then they will walk
in and take charge of matters. This is
a pretty good scheme, but it won't
A Rattling canvass is expected in
Tennessee where the Democrats have
nominoted for governor Dob Taylor, ;t
liddling, fun-loving man of the people,
and the Republicans have nominated
for the same office Alfred Taylor, Dolt's
brother. One advantage of the ar
rangement is that the ancestors of the
candidates will be free from the attacks
of the opposition press.
EVEitY man should exercise his free
und untranuneled will in making up
his ticket for the primary. Shun slates
and combinations us you would a
pestilence. They are always gotton up
to entrap the unwary, and should be
squelched every time. What we want,
and we must get, is an honest expres
sion of the will of the people, not the
echo of a ring or clique.
Berkeley county politics are queer.
At a recent mass meeting to select
municipal officers for the town of
Mount Pleasant it was decided, to
satisfy everybody, to give two places
'on the ticket to Americans, two to
Germans and two to the negroes. There
seems to be an idea there, accepted
generally, that German citizens and
negroes are not Americans.
Fon once in their journalistic lives
our esteemed cotemporarie.s, the News
and Courier and Columbia Register,
have found something they agree about,
and that is that the Richland County
delegation in the late State Conven
tion voted wrodg in supporting some
of the candidates they did. If our
friends will keep up the kre-feast
long enough it might ripen into, endur
ing friendship. Who can say ?
The News and Courier may blow just
as much tis it pleases about civil ser
vice in South Carolina being popular
and all that, but we will wager a hat
that four-fifths of the Democrats of the
State on a direct vote would be in
favor of President Cleveland's turning
the last Republican out of office and
tilling his place with a good Democrat.
That is the kind of a civil service re
form we want, and the quicker we get
it the better.
Mit. blaine is about to satisfy a
long-felt doubt, The news comes from
Maine that he is about to take advanced
ground in favor of a strict enforce
ment of the prohibitory law, and he
has come to the conclusion that tem
porizing is no longer practicable. Well, J
this is honest at all events, and, so far,
admirable. The Republican party, suc
cessful on a total abstinence plank,
however, would be in power just about
one year. At the end of that time it
would have drunk itself to destruction.
A Connecticut constable started
with a prisoner to Iladdaui jail last
week, and on 'he way both got so
drunk that the jailer could not tell
which wits constable and which con
vict, and had to lock them both up until
they had sobered off. And this till hap
pened in the "blue law State" where
everybody is good by statue?where on
Sunday even the roosters refuse to
crow, the hens neglect to lay, corn
ceases growing and water hesitates to
run down hill. It must be that the
story is a lie driven out of Rhode
Island by thirst.
Tue Savannah News is well pleased
with the President's action in filling
the Custom House and Post Office in
Savannah with good Democrats. Doth
are solid citizens, and have been tried
and found true in peace and war. They
will make excellent officers. The
Augusta Chronicle, from which the
above is taken, says that is the kind of
civil service reform it likes, and which
even the Savannah News has grown at
last tu love. We congratulate our
Augusta cotcmporary upon the con
version of the Savannah News and
hope it will now turn its attention to
the News ami Courier and win that
journal from the error of its way.
The Spirit of the Primary.
It is proper for the voters of Orange
burg County, ia adopting the primary
system of selecting candidates, to con
sider well, the additional responsibility
thrown upon each individual member
of the Democracy. Heretofore, a Dem
ocratic club would select one-twelfth
of its membership, ami send as dele
gates to a County Convention, charged
with the duty of choosing the Demo
cratic candidates to be voted for at the
regular election. Now, instead of the
convention method the mem hers of each
club will assemble at its place of meet
ing and will ballot directly for the can
didates themselves. According to the
one plan, the individual members of
the various clubs entrust the duty of
selection of candidates to a certain
number of picked men from each club,
who meet together in one place, and
confer, and make up a ticket, Accord
ing to the other plan, there are as many
separate places of voting, as there are
clubs, and there is but little opportuni
ty of one club's knowing what the
other clubs are doing at the same time.
The spirit of the primary system is to
be found in this feature?the absence
of combinations and mutual agree
ments. In the convention, there is the
opportunity of members from differ
ent sections conferring together, and
interchanging views, and each know
ing what the other is likely to do. Jlut
in the primary, when a man casts his
ballot, he has no opportunity of inquiry
beyond the limits of his own club, and
he must therefore be very particular to
exercise his own judgment, in voting
for the best men; for if he is going to
rely on the representations of others,
he might as well have let those others
have settled the whole matter for him
in a convention. In fact, the primary
system is the assertion of each voter's
individual views of the candidate pro
posed, and the candidate who is satis
factory to a majority of the voters, is
entitled at the regular election, to the
entire vote of the party. There is the
same honorable obligation upon every
voter, who casts a ballot at the prima
ry election, to vote the full ticket se
lected, that there is in every enrolled
Democrat to support the nominees of a
Democratic Convention. When ;i Dem
ocrat votes at the primary election, he
thereby binds himself as a man of hon
or, to vote at the regular election, even
if it should happen, that not a single
candidate whom he voted for at the
primary, succeeds in getting a place on
the ticket. This being the case, it
makes but little difference how the
candidates are selected. The Demo
crats of Orangcburg County can be re
lied on to nominate good men, and to
unite manfully in their support on
The New Silver Certiflmtes.
Congress, with singular unanimity,
passed a law during its last session,
providing for the issuing of silver cer
tificates of the denominations of one
dollar, two dollars and five dollars.
Heretofore no silver certificate were
issued below ten dollars. This was a
measure which must have been satis
factory to the gold men, and the silver
men, and the bi-metallists, who believe
in both gold and silver, for under the
rules of the House, a single objection,
or the raising of a point of order, would
have prevented the consideration of
the matter at all. This means that in
stead of carrying silver dollars about
with you, you let the government keep
your dollars for you, and give you cer
tificates for them, and whenever you
want the dollars, you can get them in
exchange for the certificates. Of
course, everybody will take the certifi
cates, and they will buy anything that
the silver dollars will buy. It is esti
mated that the loss of weight of coined
money by wearing away while in use,
is so great, that the saving of the wear
of the coin by abrasion will be suflici
ent of itself to build, twice over, the
vaults for storing the silver on which
the certificates will be issued. The
certificates will be ready for issue about
the first of November. They are to lie
of very handsome design, and will re
semble greenbacks in appearenee. .
The .Mexican t?niliru|;lio.
Secretary Jlayard bus sent Mr. A.C.
Sedgewick, of New York, to the seat
of the trouble in Mexico to investigate
the matter and report to him. The
mission is in no sense one of a diploma
tic nature, but is simply to secure for
the department full information in re
gard to the case, and until a report is
made, our war-like friends will have
to keep cool. Mr. Sedgewick, in addi
tion to securing records, will look up
all the facts in the case and study its
legal features, reporting fully and early
to the Secretary. No further steps are
contemplated by the department until
his report. We hope the mission of
Mr. Sedgewick will prove successful,
and that there will be no cause for a
war between this country and Mexico.
War is a bad thing, and we trust that
there will be no hasty action to pre
cipitate matters. Aside from tlie idea
being falacious that it would be a kind
of frolic for us to clean Mexico up, it
would cost us thousands of lives, and
make thousands of widows and
orphans. With these facts before us,
we cannot get up one iota of enthus
iasm for war until all peaceful methods
have failed. We would only advocate
war as the last extremity to uphold
our national honor. j

The Spirit of the Farm of Nashville,
Term., claims that when a farmer he
comes a politician he ceases to be use
ful on the farm. It is neglected and
goes to waste and ruin. The farm de
mands the whole time and attention of
its followers, and it is the same with
politics. The one or the other must
succumb and as a rule it is the farm
which sufl'ers. To this the Tobacco
Leaf, of Clarksville, Tenn., responds
with the assurance that the Spirit of
the Farm need not confine its remarks
on this subject to farmers. There is
no vocation that does not demand full
time from those who engage in it. The
merchant who dabbles in politics linds
after a time that his neighbor, more
attentive to business than he, gets the
lion's share of the trade while the law
yer returns to his ollice after a season
at the State or National Capital-to Imd
the-bulk of his practice in other hands.
But, on the other hand, if the olliccs
are not placed in the keeping of good
men the country goes to the demni
tion bow-wows and the individual goes
with it. Something is demanded of
every patriot, and the patriotic farmer
-can serve his country as faithfully as
the lawyer, in whose breast the love of
country burns as a consuming fire.
The misfortune just now seems to be
there are more patriots than olliccs.
Do Your Duty.
We trust that every Democratic

to attend tin; meeting appointed in his
section of the County for the discus

primary is based on universal knowl
edge of the requirements of the situa
tion. But the people must not expect
that the primary system will make
crops grow hotter, or cotton bring a
higher price, or give every man a for
tune or an ollice. It must be remem
bered that nearly all of the Counties
of the Slate, have had the primary sys
tem for some time, while Ornngeburg
has had the convention plan, and our
public ollicers have done as well as
any of the others, and our County is
as well oil' to-day as'our sister Coun
ties. The great object of either the
primary or the convention system, is
to keep the good government that we
have attained at so much cost in the
past, Good government preserves our
rights, but our own private pluck and
energy and hard, work makes our pros
Death ufCicii. Sluiiigault.
General A. M. Managault, the Ad
jutant anil Inspector General of South
Carolina, died at South Island, last
Monday afternoon. As the News and
Courier truly says this news will be a
shock to :the State, whose people hlrve
thrice honored Gen. Manigault with
the important and responsible office
which he held at the time of his death,
and were about to pronounce tin em
phatic "Well done, thou good and faith
ful servant," by electing him to the
.same high position for the fourth time.
General Manigault was a hero of two
wars, having' served his country both
in the Mexican and the Confederate
wars, in the hitter of which he was
twice wounded. He was a good and
true man, and his death is a great
loss to the State, which he has faith
fully served with credit and honor to
We may expect, as a result of the
primary system, that our roads will

that the roads are put in line travel

Tin: great merit of the primary sys
tem is that a man does his political
work himself, and does not entrust it
entirely to others to do for him. The
same principle should be extended to

to make big crops for him; he should
have a primary in the corn field und
the cotton patch, and do some of the
agricultural voting himself with the
plough-ballot and the hoe-ballot, if he

As the time for holding primaries i he
throughout the County is drawing
near, it would be well for the voters of
the County to steer clear of all combina
tions. I was told by one who was ad
vocating the claims of a free tuition
candidate for the Legislature that his
man could get the nomination by
forming combination with candidates
for other offices. I trust that there is
no such men candidates for ollice in
our County, and if there is such, those
opposetl to free tuition should let them
severely alone. For one who will
barter principle for ollice is dangerous.
Let those opposed to free tuition stand
firmly together in voting for mem
bers of the House of Representatives
and there can be but one result. Op
position to free ttttion do not mean
opposition to higher education, but let
those who want it pay for it.
