An Oft Told Tale,
The News and Courier of Satur

tigating Comiitten giving the comn
pleto history of the passage of the
validating bill, the Bilu Ridge scrip
bill, and the financial settlemet
bill. The first legalized the fra~i.

mado ia settleoment with %im01)pton,
allowing him several hundred
thousand dollars as his share of Ihe
plundor. Parker, Chamberlainm,
Scott, Patterson aind Kimpton were
all interested in one or another of
these bills, and co'libined to ef teeL
their passago. Pattorson issuod tihe
following order to Parker, which
oxplains itself :

The N1ational Greenback Party.
Thi1o communication from Dr. V.
P. Clayton, published in Tm Nsws
AND HlEIIALD, announcos the pro,
granmno of thoso gentlomon who
havo orgimized a National Green -
back club at Foas torville. From it
we learn four things : that a club
of sixtoon membors professilng ad
herence to the new party has boon
formed ; that theso Lmimbers "ex
poet to remain inside of the Demo-.
cratic ranks until the fall elootions
in this Stato aro held;" that after
this time they will "dissolvo all
connection with with either of tho
old parties and work Only in the
interest, of the National Grooinback
l ty of the IUited Stats;," an1d
that "this work [tihe now party]
tlhey conlfidently exploet to puh to a
su1cessful issue in 1880."'
It Irs beeni tie clustom of Tuaam
NEws I AND HEuRL) n1o to tako sido.4
inl (lisctussiois betwooni individuls
or sections inl Fairliold, -whero all
pa1arties ar inl strict accord with the
funam ental principles of the Do
mocracy. Bu'at its duty is to combat
all i.asiiis that tend to the injury
of tie Democrat ic . party ; an d it
therefore cannok, forbear saying
somnethiig in rogard to the movO
ment of which Dr. Clayton appoars
to be the exponeut. We will give
tihe miembers of thii new club the
cielit of being siniciaroly desirous of
the welfare of the peole of Faiiriiold,
and will point out thme d ugmor both
to themselvos and theoState at largo
of imugurati.g a iew party at this
Since the d tys of Thomis Jfl'r
son the princi ples of Dem ocracy have
been actively advocated by a large
proportion of tho voters of thoUnited
States. For anl unibroken period of
more th1:mi seventV-fiv3 ye.rs the
Denmocratic party h:as ma inltained a
i ggle algainsi powerful adversaries
Though several I imos defeated, it ims
never failed to regaini the aseeni len
cy. Other pirties have died ati
soon as de feated. The Democratio
pairty is porennial. It is therefore
i-leo to siy the Damn cratic pairty is
deadi. It has pamssed thmrough most
thle w-tr and Recontruct ion, only to
railly in 187d, aind to poll the largest
p~opulair voto ever cast for any presi
denitial c'andidaite, anid a majority of
a quart er of a million of all thme voter~s
in the United States, and a million
majority of white voters. It has
the Houso nmy, anu I wvill control the
Senato in 1879. That does not look
as if the Demnocratic party' had
either outlived its usefulness or its
success. There is, therefore, no
reason to beOlievo thait tho Demo
cratic party will not bo0 strong:
enough in 1880 to succeed, and con
scequently no need on this scare of
tachming oneo's self to anm o~hlemeral
organization on a mero pmossibility of
The strcngth of the Demiocr-atic
p)art~y being acknowvloil:, it fol -
lows that tihose who join other
part ies must join not becauso they
fear the weakness of the Democratic
party, but beOcauls they are opposed(5
to Demmocraitic principles, aud desire
to destroy that party through
which the g:>vernment, and tho
South especially, has mado a lastingC
record of glory. Ini fact, we are
i nformod1 thait the members of the
National GrConback p)arty intend,
if possible, to destroy the D-nio:
c ra tic party in 1880. .^.As far as this
is concernodi, the Nationals and the
Ral~dicals stand on the same platform.
.Eachm wishes to stamp out the
Decmmocracy. Are the 1)001)1 of:
South Carolini pre'pared for this ?
Do they desiro thoe death of the
Demnocratic party, or do they intend
to stand by their guins as they have
stood since the days of Calhouni ?
Any running after strange gods
has.2 the tendeney .to .divide
our people, and destroy the unity of
the "Solid South." The Southern
States are solid on Dunmocracy-.
Thoy will not. be soli o any other
imue. Why then fritter away om
strength at the biding of suin
people as Beast Butler, Uriel
Poincroy, Shupe, Dezinis IKearno:
and the Mollie Miguirei of Penn
sylvania ? Good mon are foun
within the National ranks-equall3
good exist in the Republican par ty
Biu the loaders of both aro dis
tinguishod chiefly for hatred of the
South, and the attemptod subversior
of the Constitution, so that th<
triumph of either means the wrest
ing from tihe South hor present
strength in the Union.
Again, every one must know thai
South Carolina canl be kopt saft
only through the porfeot harmon3
of all the good people, and mor<
especially of the white Voters; anI
that any secOssion from the Demo
cratic party, whether by bolting
Democrats, Independents or Na
tionals, means the suocess, direct
or indirect, of Radioalism. Let
tihe whites of Fairfield put twc
tickets in the field. The Radicals
will either run in their own ticket,
or (lso will tack to that crowd that
opposes the regular Doniocratic
nomiitco. 'Tle Nationals, as well as
the boltors, in) other Southern
States havo depended entirely upon
thoi negro vote for success. We
know the hearts of our Fairfield
friends too well to believe that they
desire any sneh consumination.
Let them pause and consider
whether the Radicals will pot all
become Nationals if they see no
success in remainiing Radicals. In
that event it would be very dis..
t:asteful to be a National,
What do0 these geutlemon wanllt
that the Democratic party does not
give them? We presmmo they Ire
chie-y interested in the0 financial
questions. The Democratic party
will givo thom all lawful relief. It.
fought against resumption, against
contraction, and gave the country
the silver dollar. The platforms of
the Democratic p:urty ought to
satisfy every one who walts ollsy
money-unless lie wants a free gist
of live hundlred dollars, as the
Pennsylvania Nationals do, The
Democratic party has alwa.vs
favored the people, an(1 stood by
the working class-hecause in the
North it ii backe.l ohioly by that
class, while in the South it is back
ci by all classes. It can afford
relief, and, better still, i4 can Winl.
Thoe Nationals can only pol11 eunuga
votes to let the Radicals step) into
the National governmen t. That
would indeed be refi eshing to the
South --to have Grant ensconced in
the White House again by a sp)lit in
the Demo(cratic party, just as
Lincoln rode in between Douglass
and1 Breckenridge. This Nationmal
p)art~y will mnot (d0 for South Cairoling
or for Fairfield.
Lastly comes tihe very i mportan t
question whether merubors of the
National Greenback pairty can he
considerca active members of the
Democracy, entitled to participate
in its primaries. If a mn cannot
he a member of two Democratic
clubs at the samne time, he can
sea,:ely he a mnembler of a D~en.
cra~tic club, and also of club that
proposes to thraih that Democratic
club inl 1880.
We know that our Fensthrville
friends have the good of tihe county
at heart, and would not do any,
ibing willingly to injure it. We
therefore ask them to reflect whethy
oir they have not been a little too
hasty. Let them defer the orgamni
zation of their club unitil 1880, as
they (10 not priopose to make a jigh~t
ti then. By that time the iNionrm
al party will have developed itself~,
and they can see whiat it really
means. ,In tihe meanitimo let them
continue in the Democratic club
and help tihe party inl selectinig good
.tadartjl -be'arers for the presen t
campaign. There are nio~ enough
white lmen' in tihe State .to form two
parties. Th le Demnocracy nood( all
the whites and a sharp sprinkling
of coloredl men, to i~oot,, in~ ordor to
"Hiolon's Babios." This wyork is
xacknowledged to bo the beet .selling
article in our bookstores.. .Drug.
gists, however, say that Dr. Bull's
Baby Syrup solls better than any
otheor medicine. It is perfectly
hailess and always reliable. Price
