The Club Meetings.
Under the call of our County
Chairman the various Clubs of the
Democratic party in our County will
meet on or about the 1st of May to
reorganize the Clubs by the elect ion
of oltieers, and to send delegates to
the County Convention to meet iv*.
Orangeburg the second Saturday in
May. These Club meetings arc very
important because they arc the lirst
meetings in the campaigns, and much
will depend upon the action taken at
them. OUlcers will have to be elec
ted by each Club to se ? ve for the next
two years, and it is . cry necessary
that active, zealous and faithful
Democrats should be put in these
places, as upon them the vigor of the
campaign to a great extent depends.
Delegates will also have to be elected
to the County Convention, and, as
this Convention has important mat
ters to discuss and deckle, it is very
proper that our best men should be
sent to the front.
The kind of delegates to soud up
are strong-minded men who have
independence of character enough to
think for themselves, and don't re
quire leaders to think for them aud
tell tbeni bow to vote aud what to do.
The best security against the evils
which have been complained of is for
the Clubs to turn out in full numbers,
at these meetings, and for each man
to realize the importance of his vote,
and to think well before he casts ii
Indifference wont do in this mailer.
Tt is folly to soud i\p any man who
happens to get up and signify Iiis
willingness logo to the (Convention.
There should he a regular electiou,
and not a mere appointment I>y the
President. There is no other way of
getting a fair and free expression of
the wilt of the people. Let every
Democrat he out and do his duty.
Thoughts on Ihc Canvass.
As the campaign is about opening
in Orangeburg County, as well as in
the State, a few stray thoughts on the
subject may not be inappropriate.
There are in the County a number
ofolllees to till, and. from the indica
tions we already see, there will cer
tainly be a greater number of candi
dates than there are places.
To all such we would say submit
yourselves entirely to the wishes of
the people. Don't press your claims
by undue intluences. Rethem her it is
unbecoming and unworthy of a t rue
citizen to electioneer. Legitimate dis
cussion of the merits of candidates is
proper on the part of friends and op
poucnts, In!*, the candidate himself
should he silent and inactive. What
ever may be the practice, i> is ivronif;
The olliee should seek the man aud
not the mail the olliee. Whouainan
seeks an nil lee. it i.-. an evidence that
be is not the proper man for it.
The usual mode of inlltictieing
voter-is also wrong. The voter ought
to be. left to his own free choice. Ali
lie wanis is to linderst and the issue,
and to have lbe facts laid lie lb re him,
and then he should be left to liimsvif
to do as bis conscience die tales.
Again t he praet ice <>i" I lie combina
tion of dill'ereiit elements and the
score! making up of tickets is alto
?feiher wrong. I he w ill of the people
x-an never be obtained in Ibis way.
All siieb practices an- unworthy of
good citizens and should be condemn
ed 1>\ i hem v. herover found.
We do not make those remarks
because we suspect tiny such practice
in oiir County, bill merely as a warn
ing to evil doers, arid as ? hint to
good eiti/ans to be awake to the
interest < if I heir homes.
The National Aspect.
So far as matters stund at present
the indications are thai Grant will
be the Republican noininee. and Bay
ard the Demoeratie nominee for
President. Most (if the Bepublican
Slab- Conventions have sent (leant
deh'.gates to :he National Convention,
In spite of Grunts unpopularity with
conservative Republicans, ho is the
choice of the extreme Republicans,
who want a man whom they suppose
will have the effrontery, like Hayes, to
take the ['residential chair whether
he is elected lo it <>r not.
On lite Democratic si?le Bayard is
the favorite at present, 'there is no
doubt thai he is the embodiment of
honor for which he is respected nil
over the United .States by friends and
With Graut and Bayard there is no
doubt that the lines will he most dis
tinctly drawn between the military
and the civil phases of government,
between peculation and plunder in
olllce on the one side, if we may
judge from Grants previous terms,
and honest and economical govern
ment on the other side.
With such au issue and such
standard bearers opposing each other
there would be something to work
Who Shall Be Governor I
The contest for Gubernatorial hon
ors liesat present between Gen. Gary
and ton. llngood. The latter is the
Conservative candidate and as such
we prefer him. We regard Gen.
Gary's sentiments as entir ly incon
sistent with true Democracy.
What effect the old song of "up*'
and ''low"country will have upon the
choice, however, it is hard to say.
Wc cannot sec why the selection
of Governor should be confined to
two men. We believe that there are
many other men who would fill the
ollice just as acceptably and ably,
and we believe too, that the harmony
of the party would he advanced by
hiking up .'i third man. But if i;
must he either Gary or ".Iuguod, we
prefer the latter, both ima man .?;;."! :>..*
a Co:. iTvalive.
Ai r<hs, writing in the "Nt ?.- au 1
Courier" of Wednesday, makes a
glowing and forcible presentment of
the claims of Gen; M. W; Gary for I
Governor, and we freely admit the
correctness of the statement. (Jen. j
Gary has done some excellent things,
and when we look at his public re
cord wc tire "almost persuaded ?
but not rptite. We believe him to
be honest, faithful, moderate, far

The unfortunate affair in Edge
field or. Monday, an accou nt of which
appears; in another place, is but
another illustration of the evil of
carrying deadly weapons.
\\ c don't believe in compromises
of any kind. There must either be
law or no law. If we arc to cut,
slash and kill, and take our protec
tion in our own hands, what is the
use of nil tin? expensed!'law; but it
we pretend k? be a law-abiding and
law loving people and are burdened
with die costly machinery of govern
ment, why don't thai government see
thai ih citizens are protected. This
protection cannot lv given if the
citizens are allowed lo carry the
weapons of protection w hich should

ment. There tire few men w ho are
so beastly and cowardly as to kill

Most murders tire committed on the
spur of the moment, and in the heat

Bloodshed in Ettgeilcltl.
At the municipal election in Edge- j
field on Monday a bloody riot occur
red, in which Dr. Bland and Mr.
Clisby were shot in the h.?weis, sup- |
* . -
posed mortally, and Mr. Glover was
shot iu the thigh. The iillhir grew
out of a dispute tis to the manage
ment of the election, Clisby having
coalesced with the colored people, to
reduce the lax on whisky, and the
straight-out Democrats putting up
an opposition. It is an unfortunate
ullair, and has thrown the communi
ty into considerable excitement.
The Ways of Politicians.
The Abbeville Medium and Mr. C.
II. Moise of Sunder, who is a self
constituted candidate for Comptroll
er General, have charger! Gen. Hu
good with taking Insurance fees,
which should have gone iuto the
State Treasury, and putting them into
his own pocket, by taking an undue
advantage of a Radical law.
The Columbia Register undertakes
to answer the charges and set Gen.
Llagood right. The Register pays
that the law is on tin- statute books,
ami that it is a Democratic law and
that Gen. llagood has a perfect and
legitimate right to the fees.
Surely the ways of politicians are
oast finding out.
The ."Medium is for Gary. Moise
is for Moise, and the Register is for
llagood. We confess we don't alto
gether relish this fee business, but
wo suppose Gen. llagood is not un
like other men.
The Cotton Factory.
OitAXGEBUltG, April 13lh 1.^0.
Editor Orongeburg Timrs :
It is lo be hoped that the silcuee
which precedes the Factory meeting
advertised for the second Saturday
in May is a propitious omen of a
.storm of material success which will
then burst upon our County.
With the statistics- beftfreVs, it is
bard to see how any one who has any
amount to invest can fail to .->eizo the
opportunity of benefiting both
himself and the community. It has
been clearly shown by the articles
published in the News and Courier,
which have since been published in
pamphlet form by the State Agricul
tural Bureau for free dist ribution, that
from Ks lo per cent, have actually
been realized by the Factories al
ready established in South Carolina.
