Tm. RICULAND Democracy turned
out in imposing numbers ol Saturday,
and Governor Ilumpton imadc an earn
e0t appeal to his native county to
achieve a gloi'ious victory. Richliand
is all right.
Indiana, Ohio and Iowa hold elec

and Cjongressme are elected. Three
tickets are in the field in each State.

has nine liepublicanis, hIdiania niine

Move Up in Solid Column,
One would su1ppose from the serenity
existing in the county that the election
was over and the Democratic cand1f
dates safely inducted into~ olflcc. It is
a cheering fact that this complacency
exists on account of a fixed b)elef that
the county will assuredly roll up a
heavy Democratic nmajority; but over
contidence Is sometimes dangerous.
The Democrats will inevitably sue
.eed Itf they go to wvork to carry the
election, but success is Impossible
without work. Many Democrats are
confident because they believe the
Radicals will make no opposition.
This Is a fond delusion. What mean
the groups of Radical leaders on the
street corners, the numerous meetings
they are holding under the guise of
religion, the boasts that are occasion
ally heard from the miore comnmunica
tive of the party? What does the
experience of other counties teach?
In Anderson the Radicals have held
their convention. In' Marion, Lau
rens, Chester, and we believe in other
counties, they have made nominations.
They have displayed the best of tactics,
and adopted the only possible plan for
success. Having for eight years
spurned contemupluously every man
that was decent, they now manifest
great solicitudle to select an unexcep
tionable ticket, and to effect their
ostensible p)urpose they are nominat
ing respectable Democrats In the hope
that behind them asq a mask the old
Radical party may go forth once more
to plunder. The gentlemen nominat,
ed hIteyoi'y instance -we have.heard of
.have Indignantly spurned these over
fures' But the Itiidicals ivIll go. on,
ho'ping. at last..to find some man base
enough to'servo as their,.tool, in their
*crusade against truth, hono, itegr.
ty and even civilization itself. Tilet
Radicals of Fairfleld have lain low in
order to allow the Democrats to make
their nominations, in the vain hope
that dissensions might arise. Disap
pointed in this, it is extremely proba-1.
ble that they will soon assemble a 1
rag-tag and bob-tail convention togeth
or, and, as a last resort, nominate a
ticket having same good men on it c
interlarded with some of the cattle
who have heretofore been the shining
lights of Radicalism. This game is1
not going to work, because they N
cannot get any person of self-respect
to go along with their crowd. The
twelve hundred and fty Democrats!
who voted in the primary election
are voluntarily bound by the most
solemn pledge to support the Demo- I
cratic nominations, and we believe
that the few who have not enrolled I
themselves would as soon lose their N
right hand as to have anything to do
with Radicalism. But it is the duty
of the Democrats to make such a show i
of strength and determination and y
enthusiasm as to deter the Radicals
from even making this attempt. With I
tile Radical masses, political determi- c
nation means a hurrah and an excite- '
inent; so that they may mistake quiet
oil the part of Democrats for apathy I
and want of interest, in which case they I
will be emboldened to make an eilbrt. I
But their nature is to be o1 the strong
side. Let them therefore see the con
fidence aind elthusiasil of the United
Denocracy, and they will leave their
self-constituted leaders to go to 'ruin
alone. With the election less than a I
month off, this is no time to mince
matters. Whie the masses of the
colored people should not be harshly
dealt with, it is a matter of necessity ]
to tell the old time Radical . leaders
that they are playing a dangerous
game in endeavoring to array race
against race in order that they he6m
selves may have a chance to steal a
little more, and that they bad better
lie low and keep dark. The day for
mealy-mouthed measures with such
Creatures is past. They must be -
shown up iI their true colors as viola
tors of the peace, fomenters of strife
and elemles of tile State. Inl order to
impress them with with a due appre
henslon that we mean what we say,
the Democrats must begin a lively,
active, aggressive campaign, and if
the enemy are flglting behind masked t
batteries let their lurking places be
hunted up. We must move oi from c
now to the 5th of November in solid c
column, so that Radicalism and bar
barism ma be f6rever crushed out.
