BQU TK?s arc in no tray responsible for the
viaca or opinions of our Correspondents.
Oar remark, in our lust/issue, that
greenbacks were more powerful in
Patterson's Convention than eloquence
or truth, seems to have touched a sore
point with our neighbors over the way,
who have given us tho benefit of over a
column of reading matter, and called
upon us to show our authority for the
expression, a task which wo shall per
form cheerfully, and.as briefly and
plainly as the English, language will
We expressed o?r belief that money;
was used to influence this Convention
upon the same priuciple that weassort
our belief in most of tho important
events of time, and that is upon the con
current testimony of surrounding wit
nesses. In Courts of law if a man
steals our pocket book, it is not neces
sary that we should seo him steal it
ourselves in order to convict him, but
if we find others who say they saw him,'
we have strong proof Of the theft. So in
the case before us, as our neighbor has
much to say about hearsay evidence,
we shall gratify him by lejecting every
thii.g of this nature, as well as oveiy
thing Democratic, and confine our
selves solely to the testimony of Repub
licans, and only of such too as were
delegates in the convention, and there
fore witnesses to its proceedings.
Such testimony is certainly the best
that could bo given, cither in court or
out of court, and will be accepted by
every reasonable man; and if it is
strong enough to produce belief, and
therefore to justify our assertion, our
case is made out.
Fi re t, here is the calm and deliberate
statement of tho Executive Committee
of Independent Republicans signed by
E. B. Seabrook, T. C. Dunn.and others
all of whom were Republican delegates
in the Convention:
"Fellow Republicans, the hopes you have
lately entertained that a genuine and tho
rough reform would be inaugurated by this
Convention have been most cruelly disap
pointed. Men for the beggarly pittance of
? few dollars have deliberately betrayed the
confidence you have placed in them."
Solicitor Seabrook, one of the Repub
lican delegates who signed this address,
was once an associate in business with
the junior editor of the News, as well
as, a law partner of Mr. Chamberlain.
His distinguished ability is acknowl
edged, and we have never hoard his
integrity called in question.
This evidence is enough to settle
the case of itself, but we go further.
A member of the Charleston delegation
said publicly at the Orangeburg depot
in tho presence of several respectable
gen;lemen, that he was in the Conven
tion and knows that the only man on
the Charleston delegation who voted
for Chamberlain was paid $100 for his
vote. We havo all the names in this
matter, and will furnish them to any
one calling at our office.
Again, here are the words of Samuel
Lee one of the Sumtcr delegation in
his speech in Sumtcr on Sept. 19th:
u\ would say, as a fact, that there were mem
bers ofthat (Sumtcr) delegation, who were
offered no le.-s than nine Tiundered dollars
for their vote, but fiom first to last they
proved themselves true to their trust."
We could produce more proof, but
wo have already taken up teo much of
our space, and it is unnecessary. It will
be seen that it is all Republican. It
wont do to say that it is the testimony
of bolting delegules; for it would bo
manifestly unfair and ridiculous to
expect us to get anything out oi the
Chamberlain delegates against their
candidate, and Democratic testimony
will be rejected.
The summary of tho whole matter is
Tho Independent Republican Exec
utive Committee, and other Republi
can delegates say that money was used;
the Orangeburg News, the supporter
of Chamberlain here, says it was not.
Which are tho people, who woro not
at the Convention, to believe?
We bclicvo tho former.
What was said by our neighbor in
reference to flic disgraceful character
of the proceedings of I he Convention is
simply too weak to require an answer.
We hope our readers will pardon us
for devoting so much space to this
matter, but it seemed to be our duty to
show that our belief and consequent
expression of it, was not at random, but
based upon the most satisfactory evi
dence, that we know of, which is Re
publican testimony against Republican
Tho attention of the people is earn
estly "dircctod' to the chl)p to be found
in another qpluinii, for all who desire
honest government, to mcctin Orange
burg ou Monday October tho 6th, to
send delegates to n Convention to bo
held in Columbia on October tho 8th.
To this Mass Meeting all who are op
posed to the election of*Chamberlain
arc invited to come, bo they white or
black, Ropublicnn . or Democrat, tax
payer or non-taxpayer.
*"t It i? emphatically a people's meeting
in opposition to the Hing and the riug
candidate, and therefore none arc ex
cepted in tho invitation but members
of tho Ring and their sympathizers,
and nil who uro working for Chamber
lain and expect to vote for him.
The call was made through tho
ageucy of the Tax-Union, merely as a
channel through which to reach tho
people, which does not affect tho popu
lar character of the meeting in any
degree, and it is hoped that it will be
conducted by: the people in opposition
to cliques and rings of every descrip
tion whatever. We earnestly appeal
to all to lay aside apathy and indiffev
euce, which is gradually lending us to
ruin, and mako one more united and
determined effort to break the power
of tho infamous Ring.
Don't stay home and croak about
high taxes and official robbery ,but conic
out boldly and lend your presence and
counsel in an honest effort to throw off
oppression. Wo lose nothing if we
fail; whereas, if wo succeed, we redeem
tho State, and bring happiness to the
cottage of tho poor and oppressed. It
is worth tho trial. Come out and do
Mr. Editor:?When I last wrote
you the Radical Convention had just
perpetrated their nomination of Cham
bcrlaiu by n vote of 73 against 50 for
other parties. This was a respectable
opposition, and we may expect to hear
from them in Convention assembled.
I am glad to see that they arc having
mass meetings in various ports of the
State, and their "following" is in num
bers quite large enough to command
the respect of the Chamberlainites.
They claim too, that tnc nomination
was attained from the Convention by
means neither fair nor honest, ovd
they ought to know. Bo this as it may.
I would like for the Conservatives to
bo prepared to meet the demand for a
fulfillment of the pledge made by their
representative pross, viz: that if any
portion of tho Republicans put up one
of their honest influential men for
Governor, we would givo them the
support of our full vota. Rest assured
that this fulfillment will be demanded
of us by the "Honest Republican Con
vention" soon to meet in Charleston.
Arc wo ready? Wo ought to be. Wo
must be. The exigency of our case
admits of no further delay, and we
therefore presume that every man, who
has not allowed himself to become dead
to the welfare of the State, has made
up his mind and is ready.
It is evident that tho bent of "Hon
est Republicanism" inclines to put
forward Judge J. T. Green, who, if they
do, will answer our requirements. If
Judge Green is what he is represented
publicly to bo, we shall have offered
for our endorsement, an honest intelli
gent and truthful leading Republican.
Wo do not suppose that the fact that I
Judge Green was truthful enough to
say that he approved the Civil Rights
Bill, will bo weighed for one moment
against him, by any intelligent Con
servative. Wc presume that every
true Republican agrees with him, and
wo have agreed to take a Republican.
Wo ought to prefer him for this truth
fulness, as it is rather promissory of
honesty, this being tho quality so long
denied light by the dominant faction.
His party nfliiliation, private record,
social connexions nil bespeak honesty,
besides tho fact that wo know for
whom wc arc voting. Outside of his
political opinions, wo do not suppose
that an objection can bo made to Judge
Green, nud wo have consented to wnivs
all objection on that score Wobolieve
that our State has better men, but
Judge Green will most probably be
the Republican response to the Con*
scrvativo appeal for 'at least honesty,'
and he fills the bill. Ramiiler.
A rousing meeting took^ place in
Sumtcr September 19th, showing tho
feeling of Republicans of four counties
against the Ring Candidate and in
favor of Green. Speeches were made
by Johnson, Lee, Dunn and others,
and tho meeting was perfectly orderly
Mit. Editor:?In your lust issuo
there socius to be soniq doubt in your
mi fid us to who ore . tho champions,
Orange or the Swamp Angel baso ball
ciub. I presume it is ignorance of the
rules governing games played under
the championship series, rather than a
desire to take irom Orange club its
well earned laurels that prompted the
inquiry, Orange club was beaten by
the Swamp Angels two out of thrco
games by tho following scores:
1st. game?Orange Club......08
** " Swamp Angels.42
2nd game?Orange Club....".27
" ". Swamp Angels.29
3rd gamo?Orange Club.48
" " Swamp Angels...73
In this mateh the Swamp Angels were
victorious and wero then champions,
and if we had had a Champion Flag
it would have been delivered over to
them. In August, Orange club, not
being satisfied to remain in the position
which defeat had placed them, chal
lenged their former opponents for an
other test of three games, which was
accepted. In the first game played,
the Orange club stood 71, against the
Swamp Angels 15.
The (Second game was then called
for and time appointed, but instead of
meeting Orange club,a communication
was received through Mr. J. B. O. Bet
terson, Secretary, stating their iuability
to play and forfeiting the game and
requesting us to proceed according to
rules and score game 9 to 0. Orauge
club being winner of two out of three
games, champion series, their laurels
were handed back to. them, and aro
now held as proudly as ever; and if
the Swamp Angels, or any other in this
county doubt their ability to hold the
championship, we shall be pleased to
hear front them.
