Till: CONVENTION TO-HOttROWT
The first meeting of the campaign,
on the purl of the Democrats of the
County, will take place tomorrow.
The delegates will conic up fresh
from the people thoroughly imbued
with the spirit and views of their
constituents. If therefore these dele
gates net in accordance with these
views, and breathe this spirit, they
will give utterance to the voice of the
people, and the action of the Conven
tion will bo the will of the Demo
eraey of ?rangeburg County. The
attainment of this will should be the
solo aim of every delegate. He
should feel that he is acting not alone
for himself, but for the Democrats
who sent him. He has a duty to
perform with which he cannot tri tie,
and which be cannot turn over to
another to perform lor him. It is
the duty of a'delegate to be guided
by his own sense of rigid and the
known wishes of those whom he re
presents, and not by the dictation or
advice of other delegates. Kneh
delegate should do his own thinking, i
and not gel another delegate, how
ever prominent, to do his thinking for
It is ;i source of much gratilieation
to note the harmony, unity and
bright auspices under which the
campaign has opened, and we have
every reason to hope that these
favorable symptoms will continue to
It is not. our intention to presume
to oiler any advice to the able body
Which will assemble to-morrow.
We will do nothing more than
direct the minds of tlic delegates to
the work which lays before thene
and leave them to their own thoughts.
The question of the repeal or con
tinuance of the two-third rule by
which the Democratic parly has been
governed in National Conventions,
as well a6' that of the* propriety of
nominating a Stale ticket in the
June Convention, will have to be
grappled with and decided by the
delegates to-morrow's Convention
Bends to ('oltimbin.
To us it seems that the changing
of the two-thirds rule which has car
ried us safely through so many
Presidential elections in which the
Democratic party has been successful,
Would bo inadvisable at litis junet
ure, when it is so important, in view
of the momentous struggle before us,
to keep down every question which
might agitate, and disturb the har
mony of the party. This con
sideration alone, outside of the real
merits of the ease, which we do not
propose here to discuss, .should cause
us to let well enough alone.
In reference to the nominating of
:t Stute ticket in the J line < on vent ion,
various opinions are expressed, hut
we are inclined to think thai there
is more force in Gen. Butler's view
than in any other, that a long cam
pnign would interfere with ?ie crops,
would wear mil the enthusiasm, und,
worse than till, would give time for
sore-heads, ollico seekers tiud indep
endents to concoct plans against the
success of the party.
Another important duty the ('(in
vention to morrow will have to per
form will be t he selection of a County
Chairman. A man is needed in this
position who has executive ability,
sagacity, fidelity and indomitable
energy. It won't do to have H man
in this place who will sit down on his
dignity, and leave the campaign to
luck or chance. Our future Chair
man must not only be an able, bill a
We believe the Convention which
assembles to morrow represents the
people Itlld will have (he wisdom to
net for the best interest of fhe Demo

Since the report of .Congressman
Alken a visit to nn Oleomargarine
Factory at the North, the subject has
been bl'Ought very prominently be
fore the country, and a disposition is
excited to know something about it.
The "Scientific American" pub
lishes full plates of the extensive
works, and gives a thorough account
of the process by which "buttcrinc"
is manufactured. ?
There are thirteen manufacturing
companies of this kind now existing
in the United States.
Tue matter originated about twelve
years ago with the French govern
ment commissioning their distin
guished Chemist, M. Mege,to investi
gate certain questions of domestic
economy, which led to a special study
of beef fat with regard to its dietet
ic uses. The beef fat was found to
contain the principle ingredients of
butter, and, by the processes carried
through in the oleomargarine facto
ries, it undergoes all of the changes
which take place in the udder of the
cow resulting in butter.
So extensive has the trade become
that 11,000,0(1(1 pounds of the article
arc now annually exported frow New
Tin* "Scientific American" speaks
highly of the article, and says ''that
oleomargarine ehielly interferes with
the sales of common grades of butter,
to which it is far superior, and it is

who raise an outcry against the new
On the 27th March 1880 Congress
through Hon. Morgan K. YViso, of
the Committee on Manufactures, ad
dressed a letter to Prof. Charles I-'.
Chaiubei', President of the New York
Hoard of Health, inquiring if the
article known as oleomargarine or
butterine is wholesome or unwhole
Prof, ('handler replied at length,
stating in substance that "the mate
rial from which it is manufactured is
perfectly fresh beef suet; that the
manufacture is conducted with great
cleanliness; and thai there is no
sanitary objection whatever to the
unrestricted manufacture and sale of
We have collated the above in for.
mation in reference to this article,
which seems destined to revolution
ize trade in this line, for the benefit
of our readers.

angeburg, we arc not informed; and
whether it will be a blessing to the
country or not. we are not prepared to
GARY IS HIMSELF AGAIN.
It will be remembered that a few
days ago Gen. Gary and Speaker.
Shcppard were defeated in their own
Club at Kdgciicld as delegates to the
County Convention, and it was be
lieved that he was stabbed in his own
home and killed as a Gubernatorial
The County Convention, however,
"hieb met on Monday, ordered oth
erwise, and (Jen. Gary ami Speaker
Shcppard were sent as delegates to
the State Convention by a compli
mentary vote. 'Fhe delegation to
Columbia is solid for Gary.
This much was accomplished by
(he agitation, as the Anti-Gary men
say, "Gary was made to show his
hand." lie made a speech to the
('(invention stamping as a falsehood
the statement that he intends to run
as an Independent, and reiterated his
determination to stand by the action
of t he State ( 'oiivontiotl.
IT NNvVoIt GARY.
We make the following extract
from the na cut speech of Gen. Gary
before the Kdgclicld County Conven
tion, which, however true il maybe,
sounds funny for (Sen. (lory :
" Flu1 rule of the aristocratic oligai
ehy who governed this Slate for the
lust otic bundled years is al an end.
The parish system of representation
ha been abolished. The Hank of the
Slate I he great fiscal agent through
which tin- taxpayers of the State were
roblu-d by these aristocratic loaders
before the \\ a i, is an i nst it ul ion of the
past. The South Carolina College
has been or w ill be opened upon a
dill'crcnt basis ; it wj 1,1 no longer be
supported by taxing the poor man to
educate the rich man's soils; il w ill
be open alike to I he rich and poor
w hite youths, free of charge. The
policies, measures and principles of
these "ruh- or ruin" leaders will never
be fastened again upon the people of
PISTOLS AND WHISKY. ^
Ther? is no' doubt that a healthy
public sentiment; is rapidly develop
ing itself on the above subject, and
finding practical illustration. The
toWns of Beaufort und Bnrnwcll have
both passed acts prohibiting the car
rying of concealed weapons, and even
Gen. Gary, Senator from Edgelield.
has promised to see that a general
law is enacted by the Legislature to
the same effect. ? And now again the
Grand Jury of Orangebarg has
spoken on the subject.
We are gratified also to hear that
Rev. O. A. Darby, pastor of the
Methodist Church in our town, took
up the matter in his sermon on last
Sunday morning, and pressed it w ith
his well known fervor and ability.
When the pulpit, the press and the
people thus work together in tin*
battle against crime and error, new
hopes may be indulged for the eleva
tion of public morality. -*?
TIRED OF POLITICS.
It is said that Gen. Joseph E. John
ston, of Virginia, has become dis
gusted with the corruption of politics,
and has declared his determination
not to consent tore-election as Repre
sentative from Virginia.
Gen. Johnson is a quiet old gentle
man, and we are not surprised at his
disgust with Washington Society,
especially around tin* Capitol.
