MEETING OF TIE DEMOORATIc CLUD.
-An adjourud meeting of the
Democratic Club of this township
will be hold on Monday evening the
9th instant. Pors->ns desirous of
joining the club unst be on hand
to join that night, if they wish to
participate in the primaries. The
constitution provides that none
but regularly enrolled Democrats
can vote at the primaries, and the
Winnsboro club will consider an
amendment on Monday night re
quiring fifteen days' membership to
entitle one to vote. It is of great
importance to every individual and
to the party at large that every
person in smpathy with the Demo
cratie party should have a voice in
the nominations. This can be dlone
in only one way, by joining the
club. We hope for a .full atton
HYMENEAL.-TIe Associate Re

THE EXAMINATIONS.-The exami
nations for teachers in Fairfield will
be held some time in October. The
questions for each grade will be
different, and an applicant must
choose the grade for which to
apply. As the questions are sent
from Columbia it will be necessary
to have but one day for examina
tions in each grade. After the
questions have once been made
public they cannot he used again,
and a new set will not be prepared
before the lapse of months. Last
spring the County Board conducted
examinations on seven or eight
different occasions. The present
rule prevents this. And the Board
are only required to meet twice a
year. Applicants must therefore
appear punctually on the day ap
pointed, or lose their opportunity.
Notice of the time and place will be
given. Another thing : quite a
number of applicants made the
plea last spring that they had made
no preparation. This excuse will
not avail now. All have had notice
of yearly examinations, and they
are expected to prepare for thoem.
No person who will not prepare for
examinations should be suffered to
teach. The examinations will be
conducted in reading, writing,
spelling, arithimetic, geography,
history and grammar. Algebra
will not be required this year. Any
good text book on the subject will
do for preparation, but applicants
are advised to procure the books
prescribed by the State Board.
The Salaries of Public Offlcors.
Misapprehension seems to exist
in the minds of many concerning
the salaries of public oflicers, the
work of the Legislature in remorse
lessly cutting down the enormous
rates fixed by the Radicals not
being generally appreciated. Pub
lic officials earn their salaries pretty
fully, and some are underpaid.
From an examination of the law in
some cases and inquiry in otherE
we estimate the salaries of thc
officers in Fairfield as follows:
The sheriff and clerk of court, from
fifteen hundred to two thousand
dollars each. Their fees and costa
have been greatly reduced and their
pay can be only .guessed at. On<
item in the clerk's office is that of
liens, which constituted the chiol
surce of emolumnent. Instead ol
charging a dollar and a half foi
recording each, he now gets fifteeu
cents for; entering it. The shorifi
loses by the late act a number 0:
sales wvhich he formerly made.
The auditor gets seven hundred
dollars and is allowed four hundrei
for clerk hire. The treasurer re
ceives commissions not to exceesJ
eight hundred dollars, is allowed
no clerk, and is entitled to som(
costs on executions, which, by the
way, are generally on nulla bon
returns. The judge of probat<
reeives about six hundred dollari
a year in fees and costs. Th<
county commissioners are limnitei
to two dollars a day for seventa
days' work, a maximum of one hun
dred and forty dollars. The schoo
commissioner and tihe trial justicei
fare worst of all. The latter living
in the country are not allowed t<
exceed a hundred dollars a .year
and many fall below, while th<
costs of those living in towns hav<
been so reduced as to amount to a
very few hundred. We knowv o:
two causes lasting several hours
each, for hearing which the trial
justice received only twenty-five
cents each. This is sta'rvatiot
wages. The school commissionei
used to get a thousand dollars s
year. He is now allowed pay for
not more than two hundred days
at not more than three dollars s
day, and he is compelled to mak<
out an itemized account of his ser
vices, sworn to as correct, and then
it rests with the two county ex.
aminers an~d the auditor to approve
or disapprove the account, or te
reduce the per diem if they deem
the work on any day not worth
three dollars. .The board limited
the work of the present school
commissioner to one hundred and
twenty offiee'days and thirty days
for visiting the country- schools, a
maximum of four hundred and fift
dollars, with a redluction if all the
days are not occupied in the desig.
natod work. It will be seei that the
amount of the school commission,
or's salary rests with the county
board. Those figures show that
the officials are not getting bloated
'with pap, and when the Legislaturo
propitiates the dear people by re
ducing its own pay, South Carolina
may boast of one of the cheapost
governments in the United Statos.
