OSTAD TO THE PARTY.
The Democratic party of South Car
na met in convention in the city of
PV nmbia the tenth day of September
under the call of the regular
P5 ' htout and only legally consti
Democratic executive commit
t the.very same body that has a!
called together all of our nomi
abgconventions since the memnora
daysof 76.That convention was
eopsdof regularly elected dele

ta party and by Democratic
~v4es represent the party and the
in making nominations for a
Stieket. The delegates carried
~u~heir instructions by putting for
~articket to be voted for in the
bigeral election, and the people had
a.vry assurance that once the nomina
were made all opposition would
and thus put an end to
political battle. But such is
case. A few men who were
~eposed to the nominations made by
~polassembled in Columbia on
lis 9th of this month and bade defi
1he wishes of the majority by
anther ticket in the field,iwith
- that the colored vote would
'to assist them in prevent
~itemajority of the Democrsey
electing their choice. We cer
did not expect such a condition
~ttignevertheless it is here. .
~<nhfirst place the affair is to be
~ertoinasmuch as the instigators
~'ci movement are men that we
2keheretofore always held in high
readand were the last from whom
b~etsuch conduct. In the see
4&3aeit brings about a condition
4thnsthat the white people have
lasfetduty bound to prevent.
~efoewe should stand by our
iniesand not encourage a set of
ae i their efforts to disrupt our
~pryorganization. The will of the
has already been expressed,
iis our duty to see to it that the
-ifof the people is not thwaited. Let
am stanid to and redeem our pledges
~made to thracy.
It be borne in mind thati
enaman consented for his name
hafte placed on a Democratic elub
mil1he did so under the rules of the
party, and one of the principal rules
was pledging himself to abide the
aeiion of the party and to discoun
sassince all opposition. This was re
4ired in order to prevent the very
:anatina of-things that is now upon
and to keep the party intact, that
jwieman's supremacy might be and
ami a certainty. This rule has al
~ways been recognized and adhered to
with strict fidelity by all true Demo
erate, and it is to be hoped that the
few who now refuse to abide the de
sion will have asmall following. If
we were not pledged to stand to the
anminatins, then why was it that our
leaders, yes, some of the very men
who are now foremost in this inde
pendent movement, insisted on the
people's frowning down independent
wun, and raised the cry that an inde
pendent is an enemy to our State and
worse than a radical? They taught us
this, and experience teaches us it is
We are aware of the fact that these
gntlemen claim themselves to be
"true Democrats," and give as a reason
for their conduct that everything done
by the Democratic convention was ir
regular, and being irregular relieves
them from any obligations heretofore
umade to the party. Yet they recog
zized theregularity of the convention
by participating in its proceedings.
The true secret lies in the fact that
they were defeated! In our judg
ment they have a lame excuse for
boltingthe nominations whether reg
ular or irregular. Now if they had
refused to participate in the conven
tions and had not allowed themselves
to be represented, then possibly their
reasoning might be of some force, but
the fact is they did participate in ev
econvention, either as delegates or
bdelegates chosen by the respective
conty conventions, and these dele
ates represented them in these bod. I
es and made nomiuations in accord
anee with the call of the proper au
thorities. Yet they claim they are
not bound! How they can make up
their minds to believe themselves un
bound is certainly a mystery beyond
our comprehension. t
The question may be asked, by f
whose authority was the Haskell ticket
nominated ? and the only answer that
can be truthfully given is that a few t
men, not even all representative men, (
met together and selected themselves I
to go to Columbia to put out a ticket. i
There was no public call inade for the
purpose in this county, and there was
no invitation extended to all "true!
Democrats" to assemble together to
discuss the advisability of such ac
tion. It was simply a meeting of not
over a dozen men that took the privi
lege of assuming the right to show t
the Democracy of Clarendon that
they would not be bound by the party j
pledge, and rather than submit to the
will of the majority of the white peo- 1
ple they would try to bring about a t
condition of things that for years we I
have been fighting to prevent. I
To these men we can only say that
we regret the stand they have seen fit
to take, but the people will always
know, yes, their children will know, ]
and only death itself will ever drive
away the remembrance of the men
who endeavored to arrogate to them- i
selves the right to snatch from us our
rights and liberties, in order to grati- t
fy a spleen and carry into execution t
the threat of Jos. W. Barnwell that t
Tillman should never be governor.
As we have already said, we regret t
this condition of things. We hoped t
for something better, but whether it is t
simply a difference of opinion, or a I
damnable scheme prompted by the i
bitterness of defeat to sell us out to (
the Radicals, it is our duty to give our t
views, and call upon the people that s
want to uphold the regular Democracy (
now and forever, to lay aside all other I
matters and work for the cause. i
It is not our purpose to be extreme v
and stir the minds of the people to a c
high pitch of excitement, but we feel e
it to be onr duty to hoist the danger c
signal and to send out a warning to
the Democracy of this county, that a
division in our ranks would be estab- t
LshiDg a precedent that is bound to
result with disaster to the future pros- e
perity of the party whose principles t
we hold dear. It is the duty of every
Democrat to rally to the standard of
Democracy, the regular Democracy, a
the Democracy that made its nomina- 1
Lions on the 10th of September, and
to whose support every Democrat is
pledged. The election of Haskell,
were it possible, matters not how a
much he is personally admired, would 3
ot be voicing the sentiments of a ma"
ority of the party, and would but
bring about such a condition of things
is would take years to reconcile.. t

er, -tober 31, 1878.V
Senator Butler Gires liis Views of the r
Senator Butler has freely expressed d
himself on the political situation, and a
below is a part of what lhe had to say:
"The Democratic convention met in.
Columbia on the 10th of September t
ast to nominate State officers. It was C
convened in pursuance of a call, reg- t
alarly made by the properly consti
sted authorities of the Democratic -
party, to wit, its executive committee.
. thorough canvass of the State had
been made by the candidates, and the
convention by a very large majority t
put a ticket in the field. I shall sup
port that ticket. Whether it is a bad
or agood ticket it is not for me to I
say. A majority of my party associ
ates have selected it and that is C
enough for me. I am not better than
my party. No man is-speaking of
the party in the aggregate. Whenever
the policies, principles, or member
ships of the Democratic party becomea
so odious to me that I cannot main- fa
ain my relations with them with self- f
respect, I shall withdraw and join
some other party. There is no middle
ground in this State, no half-way
house. A man must be either a Dem- ~
oerat or a Republican."
Senator Hampton says he is oppos- 1
ed to Haskellism, and will support the
regular Democratic ticket. Of course
he will, for Hampton has said inde- r
pendentismi is worse than radicalism. I
Tihe Republicans of this county I
have issued an address, published in a

Best Houses to Deal With.I
When you visit Charleston be sure and
call upon C. W. Blake & Co. You will tind
them under the Academy of Music. They
have recently opened, and they carry a very
complete line of stoves, ranges, lamps,
house furnishing goods, &c. These gentle
men are young, active business m en. and
are anxious to open up a trade with the
people of this section. Read their ad ver
tisement and write for prices.
ODonnell & (o. are among the largest
merchants in the city of Sumter. They have
a very extensive patronage among the farm
ers of this county, and especially among
the members of the alliance. They have a
very large stock this year, which they offer
to the purchasing public at prices that defy
H. Harby, of Sumter, has received a fine
lot of horses, mules, wagons, road carts, &c.,
which are advertised in another column.
Mr. Harby is well known to our readers, and1
when in need of anything in his line don't
fail to give him a call.
Win. M. Graham, of Sumter, has a large
stock of wagons, carts, buggies, carriages,
surreys. p)hmtons, and harness, and his sta
bles are always filled with a large number of
horses and mules. You can go to his estab-1
ishment and buy what you need in his line
at satisfactory prices.
Mr. L. E. LeGrand, whose advertisement
appears in another column, has recently
opened a first class jewelry store in the city
of Sumter, and he invites our readers to
visit him and inspect his stock. He carries]
an elegant line of clocks, watches, chains,
ear-rings, breast pins. scarf pins, and sleeve
buttons. He also has a repairing depart
ment connected with his establishm ent, and
the most careful attention is given to all
work entrusted to him. Give him a call.
R. W. DuRant & Son, of ,Sumter, keep a
magnificent line of hardware, .utlery, and
all kinds of farming implements. This is
a rehable house, and ciar readers will do H
well to give them s call when in need of
