There is no question that Gen.
Johnson Ilagood is the choice of
?i'?ugcburg for Governor, and. that
be will receive the unanimous sup
pout of our delegation in tho dune
Convention, if the nomination should
bo made at that. time.
Con. Ilttgood's business talent,
manly qualities and quiet unobtru
sive manner wins for him the suppoit
of the people.
His recent letter declining an in
vitation to address the Democratic
Club of Ncwberry is in perfect keep
ing with his character. He is not
willing to assume the role of a seek
er of the olllee as the acceptance of
stich an invitation would imply.
We believe that there is nothing
to prevent the nomination of (Jen.
Ilagood for Governor, unless it
should l>e the centering of delegates
on a third candidate on the ground
of the harmony of the party being
impaired by the bitterness of the ad
herents of the two candidates now
most prominently before tho State.
Nor do we imagine thai such a
contingency would arise for Gen.
Gary has proved himself to boa man
of genuine patriotism and magna
nimity; and believe, before he would
see the harmony of the party endan
geied that be would, w ith his charac
teristic manliness ami fairness, cn
dorsc'Gcni Ilagood in the Conven
t ion, and wo urge bis friends to unity.
We do not anticipate the len d dan
ger to the parly unity in any event.

The New York uTribune" say
that Hampton is the first Democrat
who has had the honesty to conic out
in a speech in a favor of keeping the
agreement made between the friends
of Kellog and Holler in the Senate.
This sounds to us like very si range
talk. Can it be possible thai a bar
gain or agreement was made between
Senators as lo the seating of one ol
their number? And, again, if such
a bargain was made against the

A TERRIBLE SCENE.
A most unfortunate and thrilling
accident took place in Atlanta, Ga?
one day last week,
It seems that a number of young
ladies and gentlemen had assembled
at the Opera House for a public ex
hibition. Some ten ladies, just be
fore the commencement of the per- I
lb finance, wore assembled in the !
dressing room. They were attired,
in (lowingtaletons with wings person
ating angels. The wings of ouc of
the young Indies happened to touch
:i gas jet, when the Hann s soon com
pletely enveloped her. In her cx? 'de
ment and moving about, the lire was
communicated to others in the room
and the result was that some four or
live of the performers were most se
verely burned, from the eiltet cd'
which two of the unfortunate ones
have since died.
All the help possible was rendered
by gentlemen present, but it was to
little purpose: We trust that it may
be n wholesome warning to all to be
careful tinder similar circumstances.
One of the young ladies, AI i - s
Mnyrant, was a native of Charleston.
THE KELLOK-SPOFF?RD CASK.
The recent speech of Senat?, r
Hampton on this subject in the Sen
ate has awakened a fresh interest in
this eontro> ersy.
It will he remembered that in l?S7ti
?Judge Spotlbrd was elected Senator
from Louisiana by the legally elected
Nichol's Legislature; and at the same i
time K el log wn:-sent up by the bogus
and fraudulent I'nckard Legislature.
The I'nited States Semite being, at
thai time, Republican by a small
majority, K el log sera pet I in and the
legally elected Senator was not ad

The < om in it tec, niter investigation
\:-.\ > the merit'- of the case, reported,
recommending that the usurping
Kellog be unsealed, and that Judge
Spotlbrd, who was elected by the
legal Legislature, now recognized
and existing, be seated.
This report immediately created a
howl. The cry of bad policy was
l:e.i I'd Oil every side.
Mr. Hill,of Georgia, made :i most
al b-ami convincing speech in sup
port of the Committee's report.
Ma iv I ' 1:0-rats, however, have tak
en an op| o-ite position, and among
(hem Senator Hampton. They think
i' is had policy, and that the Demo
crats w ill lose by it.
Senator Hampton, in his recent
I trreal speech, takes the ground that
1 he matter win si tiled by a previous
Sei aii < "ii mitlee and that it cannot
now be re opened; that if a Senator's
seat is liable to hi- unsettled every
lime the Senate changes its political
C inplexioii then- can lie nothing

It seems to us, however, that this
is a w long light in w hieb to \ ii IV the
matter. We agree with Senator
Hampton that "we should rise above

not condescend Lothe idea that the
Demonrtt3 art iui?i\'iting Mr. lieiiogj

are proposing to unseat hiiio because
he is not the legally elected Senator
from Louisiana, and Judge Spotiord

If Kol log is not Senator?and we
would ask, where is the Legislature
that elected him??then he ought not
to be allowed to bohl his seat, no
matter what may be the dictates of
policy, or what may be the conse
quences to the Democratic party. We
cannot endorse the sentiment or
idea that a Senators seat should be
so linn and unshaken. His seat is
always subject to good behavior, and
fraud is the worse, kind of behavior

The Columbia ''Register11 says:
"No one who knows Senator Hamil

Gentlemen, w hat's the aim of this
imvss int abuse of old man Tilden?
You have killed him as n Presiden
tial candidate, so w hat else do you
want? lie was elected President of
the United States, and if he was
traded otf or tricked out of his seat
it was no fault of his. The sin aud
cowardice was not in his submitting
to the Electoral Commission, but in
Democrats permitting such a fraud
to be created. As a Presidential
candidate he is now u dead cock in
the pit. so can't we let him alone and
harp on another string.

/Sditor Orangcburg 'lime*:
Please announce Mr. Charles B. Glover
as a candidate for the above office. It is
useless to say anything in his favor,as his
ability is already displayed by the manner
in which he has discharged the duties of
that position during his term of service.
We further iirgo onr claim in his behalf on
the ground, that the incumbent of that
oflicc ought to have considerable experience
Li tin- practice of law. as the oflicc is not
ministerial, but is beyond a doubt, judicial.
Any persons, deciring to satisfy themselves
on this point, can do so by referring to the
Constitution of our State, '"Article 4, Judi
cial Department, Sec. 120." Also Ueviscd
Statute-, pages 57- to 57S, ''Title I, Pro
hate Court," and to the''Rules of Court."
In nominating Mr. Glover through your
columns, we pledge him and ourselves, to
abide by the decision of the Democratic
Co'tutv nominating Convention.
