A HIGH OLD TIME.
The Rads liiet in Columbia on
Wednesday, and, after the usual lur
moil and bluster sent delegates to
Chicago to vote for (?laut. Speeches
were made denouncing white Radi
cals, and Corbin w as snubbed. There
is a strong disposition to draw the
color lim- strictly.
I tile camden journal and gen.
The editor of the Camden Journal
works himself up into au alarming
state of excitement because we said
that we regard the sentiments of
Gen. Gary as entirely inconsistent
with true Democracy, and calls upon
us to explain quickly what we mean.
It is with much pleasure that we
hasten to relieve the anxiety of the
Journal. Instead of the Orangeburg
'Pi.mi:s ''budding and blossoming too
fust, for spring," we Tear that the
''straightoutism" of the Journal bus
risen so high that it has forgotten
the platform of the party. We would
advise you brother to look at the
chart, and lake your reckoning once
more before you wander oil'too far
into strange seas.
An examination of the Democratic
platform ami of the speeches of Sena
tor Hampton recognizing the politi
cal rights ofthc colored man and in
viting him to a participation in the
buttle for good government, and n
comparison of the same with the
utterances of Gen. Gary, would prob
ably develop the inconsistency of
which we speak, and show the editor
of the Journal at least, "something
new under the sun."
1 As we. have often said, we admire
much in Gen. Gary. We like his
boldness and independence. He is
(dear-headed and brilliant. As a
legislator he has almost invariably
been found on the right side, and hi'
has had the honesty and manhood,
unlike many others, not to he afraid
of being found inn minority.
For nil these things we like him,
hut if his sentiments and utterances
are correctly reported, they are at
variance with the Democratic plat
form, both Stale and National, and
therefore inconsistent with true
Democracy. If we have been incor
rectly informed we stand ready to be
We stand by the Democratie plat
form and the promises of Governor

to the colored people that we arc sin

a Noisy drew.
The Radical Convention which was
advertised in the''Southern Doom'
met at the colored engine house in
our Rurgon Saturday. The meeting
was called to order by County ( hair
man Duncan, although it was a very
short time that iL was kepi in order.
The Secretary J. L. Williams of
St. Matthews having completed the
roll of delegates, it was announced
by the chairman that the Convention
was organized und ready for busi
ness. The permanent organization
was then effected by the election of
the same ofllecrs. It was then an
nounced by the chairman Hint :i con
test existed between the following
delegates from Orangeburg claiming
seats in the Convention :
K. A. Webster, .lohn Thompson,
I). A. Strakcr. II. Anderson, C. Flem
ing, and I). J. Amaker. A Committee
of 11 was appointed to investigate
the matter and report who were en
titled to scuts among the worthier
11 was then mo\ cd that t he < 'om
inittcc be confined to 2<t minutes in
which to make their report. The
Committee went out, and. instead of
staying only 20 minutes, did not re
turn for over an hour, to report a
compromise allowing each of the
contesting delegates a half vote. This
report being made, the entertain
ment commenced in earnest as soon
as the announcement was made that
the Convention was prepared to hear
nominations for delegates to go to
Columbia, livery body wanted to
make n little speech in putting up
his nominee, but nobody wanted to
listen. In the midst of the bedlam
that ha I broken loose we caught the
following names of nominees :
Christian Caldwell, S. L. Duncan,
I). A. Shaker, K. A. W< bster, J. II.
Livingston, Kllis Forrest, R. L.
Arthur, II. II. IIaynes and F, Simp
son. Then came t he side shows on
the motion to close the nominations.
A saddle colored delegate from Lewi:
vi lie could be heard above the din
and confusion insisting that his sec
tion had been ignored. Delegates
were mounted on the bucks of
benches or on every elevation that
could be found haranguing the little
groups around them. In the menu'
time the chairman was making him
self hoarse trying to restore order,
but to little purpose. The command
was repeatedly given to ''squat," but
there was no permanent ''squatting.''
In the midst of the wildest confusion,
which lasted about an hour and a
half, the election was held, and after
the smoke of battle had cleared
away it was developed that the fol
lowing were elected the delegates to |
go to (Columbia :
S. L. Duncan, I). A. St raker, R. A.
Webster, J. II. Livingston and Rev.
E. A. Arthur.
A spirited contest was kept up a
long time between the last delegate
and Christian Caldwell, which result
ed, as is shown, by Christian being
left out in the cold. This was a rather
hard blow upon St. Matthews, which"
thus received no representation.
After a resolution by I>. A. Straker
instructing the delegates to vote for
('raid delegates lo go to the National
Republican Convention, the Conven
Webster of New England and
St raker of Bermuda seemed to be the
ruling spirits. The same old hacks
came up on the surface, the names
being almost identically the same
that go to Columbia in every cam
paign. We wonder if the eyes of the
colored people who work in the corn
and cotton fields will ever be opt lie I
t<> this fad. Will they ever sec that
the Republican party, as it stands in
Orangcburg County, is nothing else
but a machine to run certain old
hacks into office?
A GOOD BEGINNING.
One cannot fail to be ph ased with
the enthusiastic and harmonious
opening of thi' Democrat ie campaign.
The club meltings have been hum '>
attended, and so far as we know,
everything has been done with satis
faction and harmony. Co mi bleth
ers as you have commenced, and you
limy look for victory. The prospect
is bright with such a spirit.
A TRAGEDY I NET HE ASYLUM.

lunatics would be allowed to occupy
the same room together. A heti.T
