Sometime ago the town decided to open a
new street to run through the lands of Mrs.
L. M. Barfield and others to the depot.
thereby giving a street for the convenience
of people living beyond Ox Swamp. Intend
ant Bradhami was authorized to purch'ise
the right of way, but when he, found that
the price asked was more than it was worth,
he submitted the matter to the council for
their consideration, and they decided not
to purchase the right of way at the very
high price asked. The intendant is anxious
to have this street opened as it would be of
great convenience to a number of persons
hauling to and from the depot, and it would
also open up a number of building lots and
otherwise improve the town.

An Anti Conference.
In the Furstenburg hall last Saturday a
number of gentlemen from different sections
of the county congregated, and held a pri
vate meeting. We dlid not learn who had
the honor of presiding over this august
body, nor what the object of the meeting
was, but baying the honor of being acquaint
ed with these gentlemen and knowing the
subject that is now agitating their minds,
we can safely say that they did not congre
gate privately for the puipose of organizing
a joint stock company, a bank, a trust, or
any kind of industrial enterprise by which
the laboring man would get more work and
the merchant more trade. No, these gentle.
men were weighted down with politics, and
being strong and powerfully of the Anti
Tillman persuasion we think it likely that
at their little private consultation, caucus,
onference, or whatever it was, they wanted
to know "who would bell the Tillman cat;"
and as we believe that the conference was
of political significance we imagine that a
plan of action was formulated for the con
vention next Friday, and we also imagine
that bottles of eloquence were opened; and
in order to carry out the resolvable mania
they adopted a resolution resolving to be
resolute in purpose of preventing TLillnman
from being governor.
Last Saturday at the Jordan club meeting
a paper was read, the first part of which was
a nonice signed by D. G. Shorter, J. M.
Shorter, and R. H. Gaymon in which they
requested that their names should be strick
en from the Jordan club roll. Below this
was a certificate, signed by .J. M1. Shorter
and R. H. Gaymon, in which it was stated
that they did not desire their namnes strick
en fromn the club roll, and that their signa
tures to the notice above had been obtained
by gross and malicious misrepresentations.
Dr. S. C. C. Richardson's name was in some
way connected with this paper, probably be
cause he had carried the paper to Mr.
Shorter's to be signed, and it was stated
that the misrepresenatation was, if Tillman
should be elected all the p~roperty of the
rich would be divided out among the poor
farmers. As Mr. Shorter is possessed of
considerable property, he was, it is claimed,
thus influenced to sign the certificate to
leave the club. In yesterday's News and
Courier are afiMavits from the three gen
tlemen above first named, in which they
swear that no such gross and malicious
misrepresentations were made to them or
infuenced them to sign the first notice; and
'they also state that they were not in any
wis influenced by Dr. Richardson to sign
the first notice; and Messrs. J. M. Shorter
and R. H. Gaymon further state that they
did not know what they were signing when
they signed the second certificate, but sup
posed it to be simply a certificate that they
desired to remain uienjbers of the Jordan
There is something about this transaction
that looks exceedingly fishy, and shows a
iece of dishonest politics, for which sonme
bdy is iesponsible. No one for a moment
ould believe that Dr. Richardson was
aity of so dishonorable an act, as in any
way to grossly and maliciously deceive a
fellw mn an nd the Doctor's many frends
are naturally indignant at the charge.
Somebody is, however, as we said above, re
sponible, and we think it is due both to
Dr. Richardson anzd to the members of the
.Jordan club that the matter lhe properly in
vestigated. The aflidevits are, however, as
complete a vindication of Dr. ltichardson as
he could desire, though it is to be gr-eatly
regretted that his name should indiscreetly
have been given so unenviable an d uncalled
for publicits as to publish these affidavits
in a paper out of the county, and it was
done without the knowledge or consent of

News from Silver.
Sr.vr., Aug. 25.--It has ben said that
the -cye i: never satisfied with seeing noi
the ear with hearing." This is pretty iiinh
the case withr your correspondent. It would
be utterly imnposille to describe a recent
visit made to Vanis on the 21st over the
C. S. & N. Railro i, to affiliate with brotlher
Masons in a 'Masonic pienic. Ouir pirty
from Silver was greatly augmented as we
boarded the train. Some from Snmter and
others picked up from Silver added to the
pleasure of the brethren. Col. Fowler was
aboard and seemed to pososs all the reqni
sites not only of a railroad man but also of
a Mason. Sumter's Anditor, Capt. Ddlgar,
.\r. Altamont Moses, Mr. 3lartin. who is
auditor for the road, Mr. Rosendorf, Mr.
Levy, J. 11. Mahoney, and your scribe con
stituted the visitors. A cordial reception
awaited us from every Mason, in fact Dr.
Sheridan, and the Worshipful Master,
Brother Avinger, were all enticing in their
efforts to make the occasion pleasant.
The colored brass band from Sumter was
on hand, and charmed the spectators with
fine music as they headed the Ilaonic pro
cession to the beautiful grove, sone half
mile distant. As we gathered around the
stand and looked upon the faces of the fair
and lovely women we could but exclaim,
what a beautiful scene. Speeches weire nmade
by Brothers Moses, Delgar, Fowler, Sanders,
and Thomas. The dinner was most bonn
tiful. The evening was spent in social con
versation. The hour at last came for the
pleasant good-by, and we were soon aboard
We stopped at Holly Hill, a small town,
but rapidly growing to a city. It is incor
porated with its most objectionable feature,
two bar rooms. The inhabitants are peaeta
ble and quiet, except now anid then when
some one gets on a bender that forces the
policemen to assert their proper authority.
This is our first visit to Holly Hill since a
town. When a boy we visited these grounds
but years have passed since that time, and
heads have grown gray, so that many of our
kinsmen did not know us.
To say something of our home matters.
We looked in on Silver the 23rd. Delegates
were elected to the county convention to
meet on the 29th; the same sent before weire

large picnic, attended by several hundre d
persons. Dancing with them seened to be
the ruling passion. Their deportment was
quiet and orderly. County polities is hot;
caudidates are still looming up. The field
is full of them. What will be the result is
easily to be seen. Cotton picking is all

Einon MANsING Tnirs:-The great polit
ical war in South Carolina is nearing its
close- a war on the one part headed and led
by B. Rt. Tilliman, of Edgetiel, nominated
by the farmers of South Carolina in conven

Combinations may help to fill the pockets of
sOMe. aInl llay also assist others to office
and to power. If however these combina
tion. intend jnstice to all men, and are har
m1ioniously Deiocratie and united with the
Denincrati party. of our country (not as
dictators), they must Inevitally assist in till
in' the hearts of the people with patriotic
devotion to the "rights of man." I have no
respect for Northern combinations if they
are not Democratic to the very core. There
is no hope for true liberty in this country
except in the strong arim of Aierican Deml
oeracvy. Shakcspeare tells us: "Oh ! it is
excellent to have a giant's strength, but it is
tyrannous to use it like a giant." We Ion't
expect any Letter treatment at the h:inds of
tile radical giant of these United States.
But our great Democratic giant, standing
as it does upon the pure foundation of patri
otisni, while it oppresses none, will be sure
to use its giant strength for the peace and
happiness of the whole country, and also
for the perpetuation of the best and the
safest form of government upon the face of
this earth. Oh ! it would be so grandly glo
rious indeed to see every Diemocratic cubi
nation, North and South, marching at the
tap of the Deinoeratie drnm1 to the great
American temple of liberty erected by the
isdom of our ancestors. Men who rule
and give political voice to the majority, if
guided by patriotism, will never embitter
that majority against the minority. And the
same may j ust as truthfully be said of those
who shalie the political creed of the minor
ity. Exasperate the one agaiust the other,
anId the result will be political trouble. The
majority in a free government always rules
by vote. But their united wisdom based
upon patriotisim is iiperatively demanded
by 'the rule of ri.t" in order that the vote
t:f the imiajority may not trespass upon the
rights or the minority.
When neither wili' obey the wisdom of
both then a very weak miniorit' nust either
compromise with or submit tothe majority.
But the minority alike an infant natioa is
more apt (especially when all involved live
in a Republic) to be justly disposed towards
their fellow-ien than the majority, not be
cause the minority is any better by nature
than the majority, but simply because their
very weakness lakes hold of their better
feeings from downright necessity. This
conflict between the majority and the inor
i tv way -o on fur years, with the oppressors
rd applied to the' inioiarity, util it becoIe~s
