ntered atthe Post Ofce at Plicken as
Noxt Tuesday the voters of Pick
en County will have the privilege
of voting on the question of a con
stitutional convention and upon
the exorcise of that right may do
-pend the welfare and progress of
the State of South Carolina for
many years to come. It is, there
fore, worthy of the boat thought
and most careful consideration,
laying aside all partisan feeling
and looking only to the good of
the State and the best interests of
the citizens. The history of the
State for the last four years teaches
soimo important lessons and con
veys the most patent warning to
the white people to look sharply af
ter the preservation of their liberty
and the protection of their propor
ty rights. Haskelism and inde
pond'entism sliould cause every
lover of white supremacy to shudi(1
der at the thought of a repetition
of tho humiliation and distress,
which the white peoplo ondured
under the rule of the negro and
white adventurer. Now is the time
to fortify against a recurrance of
such calamities and to take carn of
thOe Interests of the pormanont and
native citizen, beforo the irrospon -
sible and reckless political piratos
again take possession of tho Stato
governmnoift. and squander the pro
perty of the peoplo.
In this issue of the JovtaNAL is
publlished the a(ldross of the cam
paigh committee of the Democrat- I
ic party and it, is corn nmimded to I
the serious thought of every nman,
who Jovos his country and tile gov- c
erimont, of this Stato by the whi to a
people. It is especially interost- I
ing and suggestive to the Reform- .t
era, as somne of the bost talot and i
most devoted hearts in the move- t.

happiness of the people Don't be
carriod away by the flattery of
those who have always boen
against you, but reason with your
friends and stand together oi this
question as.5 you have stood beforo,
and keep South Carolina for your
solv~os anmd v'our child ron.
Nearly overy Reform lIppe in
the Stato is in favor of a constitu
tion al conivenltion and the Cottoni
Plant, which is above all of them
the friend of the farmers, has mnyu
editorial remarks, showing the
wisdom of holding the convention
and the inconsistent and abisurd
position of the anti convent ion ad
vocatos. Th~e Piedmnont Head

is quite an object of adoration and
worship with the conservativoe

Dr. WV. A Cox, son of Mr. S. M.
Clox of Pickens County, died at his
home in Hart County, Georgia, on,
the 11th ult., and tho remains weore
brought to George Creek Church,
from which they were interred on
the 13Lh ultimo, Rev. J. Jones, of
Greenville, conducting the funeral
services. A large congregation of
relatives and friends were p~resbnt,
to pay the last tribute of respect
and love to the departed one.
Dr. Cox stood high in his pro
fession and was much esteemed asi
a citizen. He had been a pious
and exemplary member of the
Baptist church since the age of
sixt'een years. He leaves a wife

Let us-have a constitutional con

pledged to it, [and rightly I think.]
I believe all the other Southern
States have thrown off the consti
tutions forced on them by the gen
eral government when it was in a
very bad humor with us. We may
be a long time in getting another
chance. In voting for the mem
bers to the convention, if you de
sire it, can pledge them as to the
two mills school tax, etc., I want
a clause in it prohibiting Stato,
County or rownship subscriptions
to railroads; we could have saved
some $250,000 it such a clause had
have been in the present one. I
would, with a raco of poople of one
color, prefer to have the constitu
tion submitted to thon for their
approval, but in our situation with
the bad fooling amongst us, and
with the ignorant colored popula
tion to be appealed to, I do not

since the War no. outheirner ht
come to the front who had a trui
and more intelligent love of h
section than Henry W. Grady. B]
was a broad-minded patriot wlh
devoted his best thought and moi
earnest activity to the prosporli
and welfare of the South. In tli
very zenith of his brilliant caro<
death cut him off, but his word
are with us yet, to ibe of weightei
our couiseld and value in our dE
liber-ations. At this tiine, When
few defeated and disgruntled pc
liticians are seeking to load th
minority faction out of the Don
cratic party, it will not be amis
to quote from Henry W. Grad,
upon the xicessity of white unit
in. the Southern States. His word
will be as a voice from the grav
to warn the hesitating -against fol
lowing those unwise leaders wh
are willing to risk the peace an<
prosperity of the State to .accoi
pllish their own political aggran
dizomont. Henry Grady said:
"The white people of the Soutl
are banded in a doo)p and abiding
necOssity. Here is.this vast igno
rant and purchasablo vote, clan
nish, credulous, impulsivo and Pas
sionate, tempting overy art of the
demogougo, but .insonsil)lO to the
appeal of the statesman. It lacks
political conviction and even that
information on which coivictioln
is based. It must remain a fac
Lion strong enough in every coi
munity to control oin the slightest
livision of the whites. Under
hl1at (livision it hmcnes the prey
>f the cunning and unscrupulous
)f both parties. Its credulity is
mnposed on ; its passions inilaid:
ts cupi(ity temipte)d': its impulses
nis-directed, and even its super
tition made to pla its part in a
ampaign inl which overy interest
f society is joopardized and every

That is an admirable summing
