The Jewish New Year.
This evening comnaences the Jewish New
Year, or Rosh Hashona, one of the two most
hox days in the Jewish calendar. This was
one os the days that, in ancient times, as
many of the people as possible were wont
to gather at the temple at Jerusalem to pray
for the remission of their sins. Ten days
intervene between this day and Yomn Kippur,
the day of atonement, which are called the
ten pcnitential days. In olden times these
days were scrupulously -regarded, and
w're devoted to preparing the mind for
the day of atonement. This latter is the
mnost imp:,rtant, and is celebrated by entire
abstinence fromi food and drink from sun'
set to sun!1et, or twenty-four hours. The
time is passed in open confession and fer
vent prayer. Following this comes the
Feast of TIab~ernacles3 which, to a great ex
tent. winds up the holiday season for the

SuevnmnroS, Sep. 16.-Cotton picking
has been very much retarded the last ten
days by tL. constant rains, and if it contin

Brock & Rutledge's ginnery is running
on full time. It is the most complete ar
rangement I know of. You deliver your
cotton in the hopper 'from the wagon; the
elevator takes it up to the gins; you drive
under the seed box, and your seed is all
dumped in your wagon; your cotton is
packed and delivered in your wagon: you
don't see your cotton after it leaves your
wagon until it is ready for market.

is to take place. The Hampton Light Dra

Lesesne's company, at Silver for inspec

been engaged to furnish the music; and
Mrs. Edwards will be the caterer. Young

The colored folks had much display to
day, fixing up things. Hog, rice, lemonade,

has surprised us to know what a fine dinner
they could fix up. They seem to enjoy life.
They evidently deserve much credit for be

whereby to obtain a foothold, the colored
people here were massed in the pleasures of
a sociable picnic.

Picnics, Politics, and Nonsense.
Eron MAssrING TxxEs:-Some time ago
Mr. "One Eye," or General Speaker, in giv
ing an account of "Picnic and Politics in
Sandy Grove," says, giving vent to his feel
ings, he started for the picnic at Mr. J. J.
\McFaddin's. After an acute observation he
found that some of the "outs" were there.
'No doubt Mr. "One Eye" felt that he was
out of hew, for he was among men tat
knew him too well to see with both eyes,
and fortunate for him he only had one eye, or
he could have seen politics and picnics in a
different light, but we excuse him as he only
can see one side.
Mr. "One Eye" saw somebody from a
neighboring county with the wisdom of
Solomon, but Clarendon ought to see her
aspirant and "General Speaker" displaying
his wisdom and compare him with the "long
nose" man and you would conclude that a
greater than Solomon was there. Acute oh
sierver has found the record of '62 and '63 of
the "long nose" man and says his nerve
won't do now. Well those who know him
best will admit that he must have "nerve"
or he could never be farmer, mechanic, or
ganizer, general speaker, 9.11 with "one eye."
Now if you don't believe "One Eye" has
nerve just let him entertain you one night
at his home and see if he has not nerve
enough for anything.
If Mr. "One Eye" has not found the pres
ident of Sandy Grove club, he can find him
by searching the records of the outs. We
hope that after the convention of the 29th
inst. "One Eye" will be honored with a
permanent occupation in his native ele
ment. L. P.

WHEEEAS, we the Trinity Alliance believe
that the recent sudden decline in the price
of cotton is due not to an overstocked mar

keep the price down until the poor farmers
have been forced to sell their cotton crops at
disastrous prices to them; therefore be it
Resolved, That we the Trinity Alliance
appeal to our managers in authority to de
vise some plan by which the farmers can
meet their obligations, upon deposit of their
bale cotton, without being forced to sell at
the prespnt ruinous prices.
Resolved, That we the Trinity Alliance ap

out the cotton States to hold their cotton
crop as long as possible until the prices are
remunerative to the farmers.

Republican County Convention.
The Republicans of this county met in
the court house last Saturday, and were
called to order by their county chairman,
Syfax Milton. He was also made perma
nent president and Julius DuRant was
While the committee on credentials were
at work examining the credentials of the
delegates the chairman invited speeches
from the delegates. Revs. McDutlie and Tor
rence made speeches, and both were very
conservative in tone and manner.
The committee having finished their
work reported a certain delegate to be strick
en from the list of the Packsville delegation
and in his stead the name of some one else
to be placed, on the ground that this dele
gate took part in the election of delegates at
the Manning precinct election. The report
Chairman Milton then announced that an
election was in order for a county chairman
to serve for the next two years, and request
ed Gilbert Henry to take the chair, after
which he retired from the hall. Rev. A. E.
Torrence nominated Syfax Milton with a
very sensible and complimentary speech,
which was seconded by 1. A. Stewart. Lee
David placed in nomination Gilbert Henry,
but Henry asked David to -withdraw the
nomination, as he was not a candidate for
the position. David declining to withdraw
the name an election was entered into, re
sIting almost unanimously in favor of
Milton. The chair appointed a committee
>f two to wait upon the county chairman
elect and notify him of his election.
The newly made county chairman was
escorted to the chair, and in accepting made
a long speech, taking to task some of the

Edmund Deas, the chronic candidate for
G. 0. P. congressional honors, was called
upon for a speech, and in response to the(
invitation he arraigned both factions of the
Democratic party. Hie did not favor putting
a ticket in the hleld, but predicted that the
time was not far off when they would be
ble to elect a ticket. He said that the nig
ger had had his day, the aristocrat his, and
now the poor buckra was going to have his,
although Mr. Tillman, who was their leader,
had sprung from the best stock of England,
yet now claiming to be one of the common
It was then announced that an election
would take place for State and congression
al delegates, syhen one of the members de
manded that the call from the State conven
for this election be read. Chairman Milton
stated that he was not in possession of' the
call and had never seen it, whereupon a
charge was made accusing the postmaster at
this place with intercepting the call. This
brought about such confusion that the c in
vention was unable to proceed, and they
took a recess until Monday morning.
On Monday when the convention re- con
vened R. A. Stewart the party charged with
intercepting the letter containing the call
from the State chairman obtained the floor
on a question of privilege and in an emo
tional theatrical manner proceeded to ex
plain his connection with the call. He was
frequently interrupted by delegates asking
"de priviledge ob askin' de gemimen one
The interrogations were v-ery ludicrous
and annoying, and at times pandemonium
reigned, however Stewvart showed that the
charge against him was not only untrue but
that it emanated from jealous politicaml en
Delegates to the State and congressional
conventions were then elected. 'The State
delegates are Syfax Milton, Madison Cantey,
and Gilbert Henry. The congressional del
egates are Rev. WV. W. McDuffie, Lee David,
A. S. Boston, and William Dozier. After
the election of delegates a resolution was of
fered to endorse Webster for State chairman.
This brought about a great many speeches,
the principal orators being R. A. Stewart,
Rev. A. E. Torrence, and Julius Dullant.
Stewart made an eloquent appeal to the
convention against the e-ndorsement of
Webster and advocated sendling the dele
gates to the convention uninstructed. His
speech had the desired effect and the con
vention by a large vote refused to endorse
A collection was then taken up to pay the

for the purpose of reorganizing the Demo

G. )1-e\ R% 1:msxuA Enl, Sec.
In answer to the question what ie would
do in regard to it, hie said that. he was no
longer chai rman of the county execntive
committee; that Dr. John S. Hlughson had
been elected to that position by the conven
tionl held here on Sept. 8, aid that he had
no right whatever to usurp Dr. Huglison's
authority in calling together the c'omimittee.
Ile will have nothing to do with it.
In a conversation with Col. Earle this
morning he gave the following to your cor
respondent as his view of the action of the
State convention held in Columbia on the
10th inst. In his own languaige' hie said:
"I do not regard the State eonvention as
legal because a majority of the members
excluded from the Ideliberations of that
body, for no just cause, the delegation from
Sumter. It is my opinion that the Demnoc
racy of the State has no right to act so as to
bind the body when they completely ignored
the Democrats of a county. Such revolu
tionary action in my jndgment releases any
Democrat who did not take part in the pro
ceedings from any obligation to supportthe
ticket set up by them. While this is true,
I will not favor any movement looking to the
defeat of the ticket by the aid of the negro
vote. White supremacy iust be sustained,
even if we suffer wrong at the hands of a
portion of the Democracy."
"In reference to county afthiirs, the county
has already been regularly organized, and
if re-organization be attempted by Col. Irby,
it will probably result in the placing of two
tickets in the field, and the Antis will not
be responsible for it."-harkston Wrld.
SUnTEn, Sept. 13. --The action of the State
convention in refusing to seat the delegates
from this county has been the cause of much
comment and criticism here. It looks like
the convention saw that it could not seat the
Tilhuan delegation and, therefore, would
not seat the Straiglitouts.
Our county politics remain in statu quo.
If the State excentive committee should re
fuse to recognize the regular executive con
imttee of this county, of which Dr. John S.
IHugh-on is chairman, there may be some
trouble. It is hoped that the issue will not
be forced. The people are beginning to
turn their attention to the primary which is
to come off on the 25th inst. As yet candi
dates are not very numerous. Messrs. Al
tamont Moses and A. K. Sanders are candi
dates for re-election to the Legislature, and
Col. 11. E. L. Peebles, who was a member of
the House 1882 3 is also a candidate. The

So far no Tillman candidates have been
publicly announced, although the air is full
of rumors concerning them. This matter
will probably be decided by them when
their convention reassembles on the 20th
inst. Of course, it is not known yet wheth
er the Tillmanites will participate in the
primary that has been ordered or not, as
they ignored the county convention last
SVmnET, Sep. 13. - The Tillmanite county
executive commiittee met to-day to decide
what action it would take in regard to the
primiary election ordered by the Struightout
executive comniittee for Sepi. 25. T1he de
cision arrived at w~as that it would have
nothing whatever to do wvith the primary,
sine according to its wvay of thinking, and
according to the decision of the comnmittee

Russell, who took such a prominent part in
the independent movement in this State
some years ago, came to the city a few days
ago and began to fl-I the Straightout pulse.
He approached a well-known Anti-Tillnian
itt, and said he wished to t:lk sense and
reason. Ife the-n m11ade a proposition, as
follows: Owingt to the dissatisfactio . the
Straightout felt at theI notion of swallow
ing Tillujan, he sail. it seemied to him that
it would be better f-r them to put out a
ticket and endeavor to beat him. This, he
said, could be done. le then said that his
party could carry sixty thousand votes in
the State, and proposed th:t they would
give the Straightouts these votes if the
Straightouts would in return give their par
ty the Congressman in the 4th district. The
Straightout heard him through, and then
quietly declined to be a party to the
