The Confederate Monument.
The Ladies' Memorial Association
of Colnbia is n:4king a final effort
to complete the purchase of the
monument to be erected in memory
of the Confederate dead. For
years, the ladies have been engnged
in this labor of love and patriotic
devotion, undaunted by obstacles,
and undismayed by continued dis.
appointment. Through the long
night of Reconstruction they re
mained faithful to the memories of
the past, and now that the State
is again rehabilitated, they fool that
the result they have striven for so
long should be achieved without
further delay. To consummate
their purpose they will have a grand
fete in Columbia, beginning on the
7th of June, by which they hope to
liquidate the debt of eighteen hun
dred dollars still remaining. They
will not erect the statue, which has
for some time been delivered, until
it is fully paid for. Then, with
appropriate ceremonies, they will
place it on the capital square in
Columbia. This patriotic effort
should be rewarded with success;
and although times are hard, still
a mite from each of those who
remember the past, and honor the
brave spirits who died for their
country, will raise the required
In connection with this fete,
polling places have been erected at
different points for the election of a
queen of the fete, -and the ballots
are rated at-ten cents each. It is
the desire-of the managers that each
county vote for. some young lady.
and forward the r.sult, with the
money, to the managers in Colum
bia. These elections have been
found to be a most pleasant means
of raising money for charitable
purposes. It. is rather late in the
day to begin in Fairfield ; but polls
will be opened for a few days at the
store of Messrs. McMaster & Brice,
and all who desire to aid the ladies.
in their laudable work can have a
chance also to display their gal
lantry. We hope some response
will be given to the appeal. Let
the monument be erected at once.
The State Executive Committee.
The Abbeville P'ress anel Banner
bensures the State Executive Con
rmittee, undeservedly, in our opin
ion, because of its reconmmendation
~that candidates and voesbe re
quird t pldgethemselves to
.nupor al patynominations. W
,ments, an u eifin their
wisdom, that we shall say nothing
further on that subject. The
pledges required of the candidates
are nothing more or loss than the
Isighth Article of the Conatitution
.of 1876, which was adopted in man.y
.of the counties-whether in Abbe
ville or not, we are unable, at pres..
ent, to say. But we submit that
-several members of the Executivo
,Committee have had more oxperi
ence in dealing with independent
movements than the editor of the
.Press and Banner has had ; and
4< when they gi,ve it as their experi
ence that the exaction of a pledge
unity and defeatieg outside comn
binations, it is rather severe to
fdon," or-with the.purpose of "dis.
franchising a private citizen if he
refuses to submit to such oaths as
snay be concocted in Columbia *by
one or two ruling regulat~ors." In!
what way these oaths and pledges
are 'mp9strous" we fail to discern.

oaths and pledges have been gen-),
orally adopted in those counties
that have heretofore been compelled
to deal with or to apprehend iude,
pendent movements. This circum
stance alone should cause the op.
ponents of the measure to suspend
judgment a while until they shrtll
have experienced the delights of a
bolt for themselves. In our humble
opinion the course of the Commit
tee has been characterized by
patriotism and a self-sacrificing
devotion to duty. They spent their,
time and money freely for the
State ; and although one or two
may have been rewarded by office,
the balance have had no recompenso
save a consciousness of duty earn
estly performed. We cannot sea
any evidence of a dictatoriul spirit,
or of a desire to disfranchise any
good Democrat. None but those
who rofuse to support party nomi..
nations will be dobarrel from
participating in nominations ; and
these, however good citizans they
may be, are not good Democrats.
As to any porson.l differences be
tween the Press and Bannr and
any of the Committee, we have
nothing to do. Bat we cannot see
