The kepublicans of Clarendon Decline to
Vote Witih Fliher ienocratt. or Inde

in Support of T'heir Intention.
The executive committee of the Republi
can party of Clarendon county, S. C., met
on Saturday the 8ti inst. After attending
to urgent b'usin-ss they discussed the pre.:
ent political situation in the State. The
matter was wisely and ably debated by each
one. They deemed it but casting "pearls
before swine" to vote for Tillman, because
Mr. Tillman said he did not want the negro
vote. Further Mr. Haskell deemed it i sac
rifice of Democratic principles to accept a
Republican nomination, so they deemed it
a sacrifice of Republican principles to vote
for hitm. Again to vote for either would
create lasting race friction and thus cause
bloodshed, havoc, and devastation, and
many homes filled with brave defenseless
men, women, aid children would be subject
to night raiders, thirsty for blood, becawse
the negro had helped one fellow Democrat
to dethrone another, and they were unwil
ling to sacrifice life when there was no prin
ciple involved or to be made dupes by eith
er party, and they considered, as the wchiles
would, that the negro that could be bought
by one could be bought by the other if a lit
tle more money or office were offered.
They voted unanimous, except Andrew
Boston, to deem any Republican a traitor
who would vote for either or influence an
other to do so. They further denounced
Rev. W. D. Chapelle, Presiding Elder, who
although a re. ident of Columbia, yet claim
ed in the Morris Convention that he was a

ances that we would support Haskell were

and takes every advantage that will prove a
benefit to his customers. Just go into his
immense establishment and see the tremen
ous stock of goods he carries, and you will
at once be convinced that no ordinary mer- i
chant can conduct such a large business.
His purchases are necessarily large in order
to meet the demands of his patrons, and
this year with his usual watchfulness he
realized the fact that a very large number of
ur people made their arrangements so that
they would be able to buy what they want
ed for cash. He went to the Northern and I
Eastern markets and bought direct. from the
manufacturers, so that he might save the
profit of jobbers and middle men. This
gave him an advantage over other mer
chants, and at the same time placed him in
a position to give his customers the benefit.
There is no doubt that Moses Levi with
the facilities at his command can sell goods
as cheap as any house in the State, and if
people will call at his establishment he will
convince them that it is useless for them to
go elsewhere to buy.

News fromt Greeleyville.
A political newspaper in giving an account
f an attempt at political bribe~ry beginis
ith the sentence, "Here is a pretty kettle
f fish." This was intended as a figurative
expression, illustrative of the variety of
aces, persons, and complexions concerned.
The significance of the intended figure is
ompletely destroyed by the use of the
word ketue instead of kiddle. Thbe former is
a vessel used for culinary purposes; the lat
ter is an obstruction in a river for entang
ing and capturing fish. Fish so caught
onstitute a "kiddle of fish." Both words
arc sometimes corrupted into "kittle." The
ifference between a lot of fish caught in a
iddle, and another lot placed ina kettle to
e prepared for food is not hard to imagine.

Many that are now in the Independent

pressions to the sawie etiect.
What else can you term this movement,
when the leader of the same was a delegate
to the State Democratic nominating conven
tion. caUed expressly for the purpose of
nominating St.te officers, and in which ho
participated up to the moment of making
nominations, when he was ridenocratic
enough to say that lie would withhold his
vote, and not make the nomination unani
mous, as had been customary in previous
conventions, even though when it was plain
to be seen that that convention was over
whelmingly in favor of certain candidates.
It lias been stated without refutation that
four years ago the farmers lacked only about
forty votes in convention of nominating
their chi-ice, two years ago twenty, but each
time the nomination was male unanimous;
they worked for and elected the ticket. But
behold ! what do we now see? That the rule
or ruin principle is only to; true.
Comaon sense tells us that the set of men
put forward by the Independent movement
c.nnot expect'to be el. cted by the white
votcs of this State, and their only hope is to
Ippeal to the colored pe-ople to use their votes
to kill white Democratic ones. This is no
imilar case to '76, as has been claimed by
the Opposition. Then it was that the col
:>red votes were solicited to cancel Republi
.an ones. But now do yo. think for a mo

A Venture of Voodoismt ini Sumter.
No sooner had the excitement over the
illing of Hurst begun to subside than the
ommunity was again aroused by news of
he killing of a negro named Primus Jones
t Beulah colored church on the Bell Mill
>ace, owned by Mr. Toumey. It seems
hat quite a protracted religious meeting
as being carried on among the coloredl
olks, and the greatest sort of exeitementt
reviled. The whole plantation nearly
ent crazy. The news at first was that
~rimus had been ofta~red up as a sacerifice to
e Holy Ghost because of his i-neredulity.
On Sunday last Deputy Coroner S. A.
~orris held the inquest att the church. Trhe
estimony showed that in a perfect frenzy
f fanaticism the deceased was killed by
1ev. A. H. DuRant, the colored piastor, andi
me icha-:d Campbell, a proiiinent mem
>er of the church, because the deceased had
xpressed his doubts about the supernatu
alt powver of the said minister to kill and re
store to life, and this was to be a test case,
)ut the experiment failed. This is perhaps
he clearest case of voodoismn that has ever
ccurred in our county. A large number
>f Dullant's congregation believed until his
alure in this case, that he p~osessed super
atural power. 'The jury which was comn
>O.sed of colored men was it good one and
(as ompliimented by the comoner. The
nding was "that Primius Jones was killed
md murdered.by icehard Campbell and A.
[i. DuRant." The dlefendanits are in jail,
where they are apt to remain, being unable
o give bond.-Sumter Wu'tchman.
