The Keowee Courier proposes that

receive the endorsement of that county
in the State nominating con vention.
This is a novel plan, but may work
well. There is nothing like trying it,
but as the Greenville News sugrgests it
wouldI not be a good idea to tie the
hands of the delegates to the men re
eeiving a majority at the primary, for
they might stand no chance of nomii

unot be a.llowed to participate in the se

tndr this head the Atlanta Consti
tution Of a reenlit (late has an article
that gives some information as to sta
tisties that In:y be of interest. New
York, New Jersey, Connecticut and
Indiana are classed as doubtful States
in national elections. The Democrats
carried all four of these States four years
ago, and elected Cleveland and Hen
(rick.. The Republicans count as eer
tain the S electoral votes secured by
Blaine four years ago, and if so need
only uiineteen more to make sure the
election of their ticket this year. In
diana has fifteen, New Jersey six
and Connecticut nine. Any two of
these, with the IS" votes they count as
certain, would assure the success of the
party, or with the vote of New York, ]
without these three, they could elect.
But we do not believe they can claim
as too sure the 182 votes given Blaine
four years ago. They count on doing
this, and the selection of their ticket
indicates that it is their intention also
to carry New York and Indiana. They
have taken an Indiana man and a New
We believe Cleveland will carry New
York by a larger majority than he did
four years ago, and with the solid
South-153 votes-will give the Demo
cratic ticket 1S9 electoral votes, and
then we will only need twelve more
votes to give a majority of the electoral
To the doubtful States this year
might be added California and possibly
one or two others. In speaking of the
four States named here as doubtful, the
Constitution well says:
"These have now more reason than
ever to re-affirm their faith in the )em
ocratic party, for it has given them the
honest administration for which they
voted, and has relieved the govern
ment from the bondage of Republican
corruption, which relief was brought
about by the unanimous electoral votes
of the so-called doubtful States."
We believe that all four o)f these so
called doubtful states will vote as they
did four years ago,and that neither one
of the Republican nominees will carry
his own State.
The Republican party made its first
campaign in 18.36, and the following
table shows how these States have voted
in every national campaign since that

TRUE TO HIS NATIVE STATE.
Some Facts in the Life of the Rev. A. Coke
Smith, D. D., of Wofford College.
[From the Williamsburg Herald.]
There are some facts in the history of
the Rev. A. Coke Smith, D). D., that
are not knowvn to the public. While
pastor of Trinity Church, Charleston,
he was oflered the p)astoriteofa leading
church in New" York with a salary of
$5,000 per annum, but declined even to
consider a proposition to leave his na
tive State. A bout the same time he
had the refusal of a church in Baltimore
on a salary of3,000, and again declined.
Later on ~he received an official commun
nication from the stewvards of the First
Methodist Church in Atlanta offering
to have him transferred to the North
Georgia Conference and stationed there
at $2,500 a year, but he determined to
remain in the Palmetto State and de
vote his strength to the good of the
people among whom he was reared.
'hese are not all the offers he has had
made him during thle last few years.
Since his election as professor of mioral
philosophy in Wofford ('oliege he has
refused the same chair in one of the
leading universities in the South, with
a salary twice that for whlich he no0w
serves. Dr. Smith is under 40 and has a
bright career ahead of-him.

How a Negro Near Prosperity was Cut to
Piec-a by Another Negro.
[Special to the News and Courier.]
PROSPERITY, July 17.-On Sunday
night, July 15, while returing from
church, a negro named Harrison Gall
man was cut and( stabbed by another
negro named Riley H utehison. Harri
son has sixteen wounds. one of which
is about eight inches long, reaching
from the back, of the neck, on the left
sie of his face, to Ils chinl. A warrant
was issued by Trial Justice Hair and
Riley was arrested, but got away from
the constable and is now at large with
handcu1fs on. The constable shot at
him, but he did not hit him. Riley is a

WAsINToN,July 10.-The report of
Mr. Randall's serious illness, when re
ceivedl in the house this mnornling, was a
shock to every one, as he was present
yesterday. He has been in bad health
for some time, and just before his
speech on the tarift issue, he had a sur
gical operation performed, from which
hemorrhage of thle bowels resulted
at an early hour this mnornling. He
wvas all t<-day a very 111 muan, and the
chances between life and death were
about even. The doctors say should he
have another hemorrhage he cannot
live, but if he escapes from that he will
recover. There is much anxiety among
members about his condition, for al
though he differs wvith the majority of
his party on tf e tariff issue, there is not
a more popular man, personally, on the
floor of the house.
MiR. RAND)ALL D)oING WELL
WAShINGToN, July 17.-Mr. Rail
dall's conditioni is faily satisfactory to

symtoms this morning, but they were
pronptly overcome, andl he continues
