PRIMARY FOR (ONG R EM.
It is very desirable that the pri
marv system of election be adopted
for nominating congressmen. Only
in this way can the choice of a larg
portion of the citizens be expressed.
If the nomination be made by con
vention, the entire issue. in this
county at least. will be centered in
the fight for two men : or that is the
present indication. The contest will
be as to which of the two candidates
in the field shall get a majority of
delegates in the county convention
which shall send delegates to the
congressional convention. The lpeo
ple of this county can well imagine
what kind of a contest that will be
it will be bitter. The county will be
divided into partisan factions over
the two candidates, and in all proba
bility the unpleasantness of 1, l
will be' repeated. Primary election
will obviate this.--Newlerry Obscreer.
We have no objection to the pri
mary plan of nominating congress
men if the people want it, and if it
be practicable in the present caln
paign. W\e find, however, that the
Constitution of the Democratic par
ty of South Carolina provides only
for nomination by convention :
ARTICLE vi. The mode and man
nor of nominating candidates for
county offices or for the State. Ju
dicial and Congressional Con.en
tions, shall be regulated in each coun
ty by the respective county conven
ARTICLE vii. The State Convention
shall be composed of delegates from
each county, in the numerical pro
portion to which that counrty is~ en
titled in both branches of the Gene
. AnrE xiii. Representaion inJu
dicial and Congressional Co'nventin
shall be on the same basi, as in State
Conventions. A majority of deleh
g'ates shall be present at a conven
tion to constitute a quorum for nom
inating a candidate either for con
gress or solicitor. * * * As1
soon as a Congressional or Judicial
Convention has nominated the party
candidate for congress or solicitor. it
shall adjourn sinie (ie :and whenever
a candidate to fill an unexpired term
of either office, has to he nominated,
it shall be done by a new convention
of delegates fresh from the peoplde.
The executive committee of e'ach
congressional district or judicial cir
cuit shall consist of the severl coun
tv- chairmen of the respective couni
ties and parts of counties comp~osing
such District or Circuit. * **
It shall require the consent of a mna
jority of the whole executive comn
mittee in any district or cirenit to
call a nominating convention.
This certainly shows that anmi
nation of congressmen and solicitors
by the primary plan was not contem
plated when the Democratic party in
convention adopted the present Co~n
stitution. The only article of the
Constitution that could possibly b e
construed to give the congressinonal
district the power to change from the
convention plan of nominating to the
primary is article vi., qjuoted( above.
And this evidently has reference to
the manner of electing delegates to
the Congressional, State, .Judicial
and County Conventions, and of nom
inating candidates for county oflices,
which may be done by prmr ec
tion. In Charleston County del egate.s
to the State, Judicial and Congres
sional Conventions are elected by
primary-, and it is perfectly compe -
tent for each and all of the several
counties comp)osing the Third Con
gressional District to call their Coun
ty Conventions together and iamnend
their constitutions so as to conform
to the primary mode of electing dcl
egates, each cotty would have to
act separately in the matter and one
could adopt p)rima~ry and anoth er
continue the convention plan, but to
vote directly for a candidate for Con
gress. W~e believe. (as we statted on
April 28th in the HEREDu .xU NEW5)
that it would be necessarv for the
Democratic party of the State to
meet and so amend the present Con
stitution. as to give the Congression
al District the powr. to vot" byV
primary in nominating a candidate
for Congress: the same would have
to be done to enable them to vote
directly for State officers. If this is
to be done the State Executive C'om
mittee should call a convention at
once and settle the einest ion. The
primary it seems is de'sire.d by. the
p)eole,l( and they certain]yr Lauv. t
- power to control the miachin&ry of
the~ party if a majority of themn
agree upon a play', but if a ae
Convention was called and a majo.ri -
ty of the delegates should vot e to
J.AK J Di4 %
continne the convention plan. it
would necessitate callii i another
convention to nominate siate offi
ei rs which would take a great deal
of their time and we have thought
that it wuld i" impracticable
for us11 i! t1" pre-en;it campaign,
however if hlele are willing to
'i Ve, tle time t: holding County and
State Conventiols in order to adopt
it. we are willing and shall render
such asi-tane as may be in our
tower. to bring about this result: at
the same time we are not alarmed by
what the U1,srver says about the un
pteasantIess of 1 N4 being repeated.
We can speak for one of the candi
(ates antt can say\, that he has never
been the cause of any unpleasant
ness. which has occurred in a con
Vention of the Democratic party in
Newherry County. either in 1 4, or
any" other time. We refer to Capt.
JaLs. N. Lipscomb. If our construc
tion of th? Constitntion is not cor
rect, we w tu be glad to have the
ilmatter explaitneU. The primary plan
of eieetitg delegates would enable
the counties to agree uponl one of
their cai ldattes or to elect delegates
favorable to the candidates of
anlother cuitnty ; and in c,uinties where
no cain1didates were p!reseited. they
could Vote for delegates who would
suplp] ort the calit=:ate , a majority
of th. voters of the couity or Cottn
tie'. We believe this would be the
most acceptable pl:I1 after all. As
the "[retty large contingent of voters
in Newberry County who (the Obser
ver savs) do not want either Mr. John
stone or Mr. Lipscomb." can get up
a ticket for any candidate they pre
for "from another county."
The objection to a direct vote by
primarr for a candidate is that the
larger counties would have the ad
va itlge of the smaller if there were
but one cani?ndate from each county
and the plurality plan adopted.
There art also other objections which
we will point out if .a Convention is
L'0r AR IIlH)T.
Several papers in the Third Con
gress ion al District have stated thet
strong solicitat!uu is being presented
to Judge J. S. C=thran. of Abbeville.
to indce him to enter the race in
the Third Congressional District for
the purpos' of retaining the repire
sen tativye ini Abbeville County. Judge
Cothran is a charming, able and
popular man. andl would make an
acce pt:dl e anti distinguished rep re
sentativl. He has high qjualification
f or that kind of work. We admire
his genius and his worth, but we do
not think he shion1id consent to make
the race which i.s urged upon him.
Abbe.ville County has had the repre
sentative for ten years, and there is,
in our judgment, no justification for
(alling on a Circuit Judge to enter
the race to keep the other counties
from having the Congressman

Whose History Shall We Ye?
We have just received a copy of a
"Grammar School History" of the
United States, written by Miss L. A.
Field, of Georgia. We have not had
time to examine it carefully, but
think from what we have read in it.
that we will be highly pleased with
the book. It is written in a plain,
comprehensive style and seems to be
well suited for common schools.
We should be very careful in de
termining, at our next meeting, what
history is best adopted to meet our
wants. The committee in their re
port recommended Swinton's series.
not that it is faultless, but that it is
the best of the list from which they
had to select. We don't doubt that
the series is very good, but we know
that the author lived "across the
line" and therefore could not have
been in full sympathy, with the
Southern people, in the "lost cause."
It is true that sectional jealousy
should be smothered, and that States'
lines should be forgotten. Genera
tions, however, may come and go;
the political face of our country may
be changed; the fraternal ties of
friendship may bind our people to
gether, but the time is in the far fu
ture when a Southern man will fail
to delight in reading, from a South
ern standpoint, the brave and chival
rous deeds of those who follow d an
unsullied but unsuccessful banner of
a noble people.
The Teachers' Association met
Saturday 5th. On account of un
favorable weather the attendance was
rather small, but, as usual, a lively
interest was manifested. Only one
of the lecturers, Miss Mamie Whites.
was present who read a well prepared
essay on "Map Drawing." She clear
ly showed that this subject demands
more attention than is usually given
to it: that to understand geography
thoroughly, it is necessary to devote
much time to the study of map
drawing. The teachers, generally.
expressed their opinion that it is
highly beneficial, but not always ex
pedient in our country schools, where
there are so many children, and so
many wants to be supplied.
The subject of holding a conven
tion of two or three days during the
smmer was brought up, but it was
deemed best to wait until the next
meeting to decide when it shall be
held. We hope that the next meet
ing of the Association will be well
attended, since we have postponed
the subject of text-books until that
Teachers are beginning to feel
that the holidays are near, for the
time for commencements and school
exhibitions is at hand. The closing
exercises of the Female Academy
will take p)lace this week, and will
doubtless be well attended, for the
young ladies of Capt. Pifers school
never fail to draw large crowds to
their exhibitions. The exerci.V of
the Prosperity High School will also
take place this week. We would be
pleased to attend both, but of course
cannot, since they are at the same
time. On next Sunday the College
commencement will begin with the
preaching of the Baccalaureate ser
mon by Rev. Dr. Alleman, of Penn
sylvania. On Sunday night Rev.
Dr. Grier, of Erskine College, will
address the students. On Monday
and Tuesday there will be exercises
at the Opera House, and on Wednes
day the class of 18863 will bid fare
well to their alna mater.

We thank the young gentleman of
Wofford for an invitation to their com
