E. H. AULL, 1'DITOR~.
AS TO POLITICS.
The state democratic executive
committee has issued the call for the
state convention, and the county
executive committee will meet soon
to call the clubs together and to ar
range for a county convention.
Then the political year will begin.
There is little probability of
any of the state officials having Op
position, except the one member
of the board of railroad commis
sioners whose term expires this
vear. It was never known that an.v
man succeeded himself without op
position when seeking re-election
on this board. It is'a six-year term
office and therefore longer than two
terms in any other state office.
The state convention will ha\e
little to do except to elect delegates
to the national convention. The
people of South Carolina so far as
we have heard expression. are not
united on any candidate for the
nomination. a(l no one who has
been mentioned seems to be an
especial favorite. The democracy
of this state should be willing to
take any good and clean democrat
who might be offered and who
would have a chance of winning.
Mr. Hearst has some friends and
supporters. but it appears now tnat
Judge Parker would be preferred.
Mr. Gorman is not considered se
riously as a candidate. With the
Bryan wing and the Cleveland
wing of the party refusing to agree
to anythhig that does not suit their
respective views, there would seem
to be but little hope of democratic
success, and there seems less hope
of getting these factions together
on men or platform. If the demo
crats would unite this year on can
didates and on platform they could
carry success next November.
In county matters, it is to be
,hoped we shall have a pleasant and
agreeable campaign and so. cond
ucted as to be free from bitterness
and to give instruction and pleasure
to the people. It will not be many
days now before the candidates will
begin to announce themselves for
the positions to which they aspire.
it is not probable that any of the
places will go begging.
We have heard of no opposition
to Congressman Aiken.
Solicitor Sease wvill in all proba
bility be opposed. In fact. Hon.
R. A. Cooper. of Laurens, has al
readly been in Newherry announce
ing his desire to act as the prose
cuting attorney for this5 circuit.
