The New Election Law,
the new election law makes sev
"eral changes from the law now ex.
istiing. They are briefly as follows :
Two boxes shall be provided, one
for )'pderal and the other for State
"elections, and the boxes shall be
kept in separate apartments.
Two boards of election commis
sioners shall be appointed by the
.governor, one for State and one for
Federal elections. Both political
parties shall be represented.
The precinct managers shall re
pdrt in three days-each to its re
-ieotive board of election managers.
-The governor shall appoint an
Sedditional board of State canvassers
to aount the votes for Federal offi
The polls shall be open from
'eight o'clock, a. m., to five o'clock,

Maj. T. W. Woodward.
In another column will be found
~n extract from the minutes of
'okson's Creek Club, containing a
resolutioni proposing Matj. T. WV.
Woodward for Congress. This is a
deserved compliment. No man in
South Carolina has labored more
bonetezntly or zealously for the
rehabilitation of the State through
the triumph of Democracy than
Major Woodward. His ability and
inte'grity are unquestionied. T wo
yeais ago Major Woodward led
uniformly in the triangular contest
in the Congressional Convention ;
and he failed t;o secure the nomina
-tio4 only through a combitmation
against him, Should Major Wood
ward be chosen as the standard
beaver of Democracy in the fourth
district, he will inahe a rattling
campaign, and will btury any un
fort;nnate Radical that may run
against him, so deep with Demo-.
cratie votes that even the last
truzzip will fail to resurrect him
without the ad of a telephone. We
would be pleased to see Major

Congressman there iay be a con

the county should be deliberately
expressed in favor of some candi

Hon. A. H, Stephens,
The Charleston Journal of Com
merce pays its respects to Mr.
Stephens in the following manner :
Mr. Stephens vas a States Rights
man in 1832, but he opposed the
nullification of the unconstitutional
tariff of 1828, the first great lesion
on the Constitution. He was a
States Rights man in 1851-2; but
he opposed actioh to prevent the
unconstitutional exclu3ion of South
ern men with their property from
the territory acquired from Mexico
by blood and taxes paid by the
people of the South. He was a
States Rights man in 1860, advo
cating the right of Secession, but
was opposed to the remedy against
a revolutionary sectional party
coming into power. When Presi
dent Grant, throu,h J-dge Durell's
midnight order, and Marshal Pack
ard's United States troops as a.
possa, overthrew the State gov
ernment of Louisiana, elected by
a clear majority of from 8,000 to
13,000 votes, Mr. Stephens came to
the rescue of what the Radical
committee of privileges and elec
tions, consisting of Messrs. Morton,
Carpenter and others, pronounced
in February, 1873, a Usurpation
and a fraud. In a volunteer letter
he undertook to justify President
Grant and his use of the United
States troops. Mr. Stephens
always argues correctly in advance
but when the time comes to con
summate by action what lie has
declared, he does not come to time,
but invariably disappoints expecta
This review of the great com
moner's record is not out of place
in view of his recent action in
bolting the Democratic caucus. If
the report is true, which is circu
lated, despite Mr. Stephens' dni-.il,
that lie was pL.iting with Hayes to
defeat the Potter resolution, and
promised to take twenty..two
Democrats with him, his offence
against the Democratic party is of
a very serious nature.
A STRANGE CEREM~ONY.-A strange
and rather solemn ceremony took
place a fow days ago at the town
of Harrisonville, the county~ seat of
Case county, Missouri. Tis wae
the burning of a large number of
county bonds, known as the "bloody
bonds," on account of the tragedy
and crime connected with them.
They were part of a fraudulent
issue made a few years ago, wvhich,I
in the end, caused the oneder of
one of the cormy comi)ionlers, the
*iu:cide of anothe'r, and a state of
terrorism which for a time made the
h iw powerless. Finally, the county
brotight suit for the recovery of the
fraddlant bonds, the suit was
success ful and the bonds were
ordered to be publicly burned.
This wvas done a few days ago, in
the presen~ce of a large concourse
of people, two per'sons designated
for the purpoea calling off the
numbers of the bonds and the
sheriff consigning thei to the
flames. As the last one w'as burned
the crowvd sent up a shout of satis
faction that justice had at last been
done in the matter of "the bloody
