FRI PA Y, SEPTEM RKK :i, 1880.
We propose in this issue to say a
few words about the ticket noniinat
vd on lust Wednesday by tin (.'ounty
Democratic Convention. We have
no doubt that most of the nominees
.are well known to the voters of the
('ounty, but at the same time a brief
reference to each may not bo inappro
priate in the outset of the campaign.
We will commence with the nomi
nee for State Senator, Gen. das. F.
Gen. I/.lar's popularity in the
-County is unquestioned, lie has
been the acknowledged leader of the
Democratic party of Orangeburg for
many years, and has always been
noted for his conservatism and dis
cretion. His nomination therefore
at the head of our ticket is a guaran
tee that the Democratic principle of
equal rights to all classes and races
will be inviolably maintained.
To proceed next with our nominees
Dr J. W. Summers is well known
as a thorough and successful planter
of Middle St. Matthews, and a
gentleman of enlarged views, w ho
will be heard from w hen (he time
comes, knowing as he does the needs
of our people.
Dr. J. C. Ilolman of the Fork, is
widely known all over the ('ounty.
and has a host of admirers. Asa
scientific agricultural writer, he has
doncntiich good to his neighbors. Ul
is a clear thinker, and is generally
found on the right side on all ques
tions. He will talk too whenever it is
Augustus Find is a large planter
of Lower St. Matthews controlling
the richest plantations on the Sant.ee.
Possessed of menus and intelligence,
he will, douhtlesw, eariA" many votes
for the ticket.
Dr. 1J. II. Kuotts is a popular citi
xen of the Fol k, and a young man of
energy enterprise and hard practical
sense inherited from a most worthy
sire. lie is w ithal a ti ne and liberal
Democrat,and a skilful fanner.
Alexander brown, the colored
nominee for Representative, is an
honest, hard working and sensible
man, and has shown that he is a free
man indeed, and dares boldly to do
right. He has been true to the Demo
eratic party ever since his entrance
into it and commands the respect of
Joseph F. Robinson, the nominee
for Clerk of Court, is a farmer in the
bull Swamp community. He was
elected to this olllcc in 18715 over a
number of very popular candidates,
and held the ollico only a few months
when he was ousted by the inlllixof
Radicalism. He was again nominal
eil by the Democrats for t he oilicc
in 1870, but the whole ticket was
then defeated, or counted out. lie is
a one armed Confederate soldier, ami
A. McQueen Sal ley, the nominee
for Sliorilf, is a son of Dr. A. S,
Salley, who is so universally beloved
all over the Count}'. He is a young
man of vim, pluck and remarkable
fairness of character, and iscmicntly
suited for the duties of the ofllce to
which he is nominated.
Henj. J'. Izlar, the nominee for
Probate Judge, is well qualified l>y
education, and by the general char
ncteristics of heart ami mind, for the
olliee for which he is nominated.
Honest, fair, and well balanced, he
will make a good judge, and a faith
ful guardian of the interests of the
Of the nominees for ('ounty Com
missioners, ('. G. Dnntzlcr is a son
of the gallant and lamented Col. O.
M. Dant/.ler, w hose name will never
he forgotten in Orangeburg County.
Mr. Dnntzlcr is a planter near Lowis
villc, and is a young man of educa
tion and promise.
dos. A. Panning is a representa
tive fanner of the Upper Fork.
Practical, energetic business-like,
and familiar w ith the wants of the
County, he will make a capital
Marshall Jones is a colored man
living near Caw-Caw Swamp. He is
not untried in ollico. He has for
many years held the positiou of
School Trustee, and has discharged
the dut ies of the olliee with ability,
fairness and satisfaction to all. He
has the sense to see the blind folly
of the followers of the Radical ring
masters, and the independence t<>
think ami act tor himself.
J. L. Heidtman, the nominee for
Coroner, is wcli know n to our citi
zens. He is already familiar with
the duties of this olliee, and bong
attentive to business, honest 61* pur
pose, and courteous to all. h<- is the
right man in the rigid place.
Speaking generally, although no
systematic effort seems to have been
made to give the different sections
their proportionate representation,
each man voting for his preference
regardless of sections, the ticket is
pretty generally scattered throughout
the (Ounty, which is certainly a
source of congratulat ion.
Again the ticket is conservative.
There is not a man on it w ho will not
give fair play and equal justice to
all classes and races of our citizens.
It speaks for the Democracy that the
rights of all men will he protected.
THOUGHTS FOR THE COLORED
It seems passing strange that the
colored people can't see w hat is best
for them. A majority of them still
persist in hanging to w hat is called
the''Republican party." And what
is this so-called "Republican party?"
It is nothing more nor less than a
ring of a few cunning leaders in each
("ounty who are joined together for
the purpose of getting tlie votes of
the ignorant colored people to secure
them in olliee. These few men run
the whole machine, for if they
could'nt run it. they would have the
would leave the party immediately.
They have no earthly use for it, ex
cept so far as their own benelit is con
cerned. They are a "mutual admir
ation society ." They fall out some,
times, but make up as soon as their
mutual interest requires it. They
control conventions just as they
please, putting out every time the
same old delegates and the same old
ticket. The poor man who works in
the corn Held is expected to do the
voting, but not to have the ofliees.
They are entitled to the bones, but
iho big guns must have the meat.
Rut y ou say you can't trust the
Democratic parly. They won't give
you your rights. Where is the truth
iti this? The Democrats olfercd you
an equal share in the olliees, if you
would come in ami help in the work
for good government, ami not only
have I hey made the promise, but they
have more than kepi ii. In response
to their offer, a number of colored
men came in. and so anxious were
they to fulfil their promise, that they
have, given more than the number of
names enrolled entitled them to.
They have given you Marshall Jones
and Alexander brown, both hard
working, able and honcsl colored
men, and. if the ii u in hers of colored
men enrolled had justified it, they
would have given as many more.
It is the wish of the Democrats to
harmonize, and for the races to work
together for the common good. They
don't waul a man's politics to be de
cided by the color of his skin.
And what good do you get by op
position lo tin- whites? Does it do
you poor men in the corn fields any
good if you i ringleaders (ill their
pockets w il b money?
Let the thing; turn out ns it may,
the State government is going to be
Democratic, and a Democratic Legis
lature is going to make your laws,
and Hugh S. Thompson will run
Give up your stupidity and your
power will he felt. As Col. Goch ran,
the purest and ablest Republican in
the Stute says, in Virginia ami in
Georgia, where the Republican party
is virtually dead, the Democrats are
courting ami utilizing your votes to
your own good.
It is a blind ami prejudiced infatu
ation with a silly idol, the so-called
Republican party, hut nothing but a
scllish, greed loving ring, which is
perfecting your ruin. Hreak from it.
and you will he freemen.
It is folly for you to suppose* that
ignorance can control this govern
ment. It never has done it in any
land, and it will never do it here.
The only wise course is for you to
help us to win our victory in order
that you may share with us in its

Next week the teacher's work com
mences again. Let us go to the Held

bler calling than that of the teach
er, ami if at times our lot seems a
hard and ungrateful one, let us look
for our reward in the consciousness
of duty faithfully done. We will
reap the harvest in due season, if we
faint not. The trainingof the young
heart and mind for the battle of life
is a grave responsibility, and great
will he the reward if we accomplish
it well. As the sculptor brings forth
purer white winged angels Trout the
rough and unsightly stones in his

You also state that I am opposed
to the State appropriations to the
University. This is a great mistake,
as no citizen of Orangeburg has a
greater interest in the prosperity of
Clnllin University than myself.?and
no taxpayer in the State is more
anxious to have the State pay its just
debt to the State Agricultural Col
lege, and all the appropriations made
by the State for this purpose have
met with my hearty approval.
