The entire Independent ticket is
therefore elected and will serve fur
the ensuing term of two years.
After the Ituttlc.
It will be a matter of surprise to
many of our readers abroad, and
throughout the county, that the muni
cipal ticket nominated by the Demo
cratic Club was defeated on last Tu es
day. As soon as the regular Demo
cratic nomination was made eonside
able opposition arose and developed
in strength every day. The politic
al line was not accepted by ilie oppo
sitiou, but various issues of a differ
' cut character were eilcocssfully
sprung, which completely divided the
w hi top, whilo tho blacks were solid on
the color line. A panic, was also got
ten up on tKc subject of prohibition
which had its effect. The parly ques
tiou was ignored although eve
ry cflort; was made, on the one side, to
keep it prominently forward. If mit.
takes have been made, let us endeav
or to profit by them in the future. So
far as the majority of the ticket elect
ed is concerned, we have no doubt
that the affairs of the city will bepro
perly administered; but what will be
the future politicaleffect of the elec
tion it is hard to calculate.
lint, ho?>ever this may bo, wc hope,
if any animosities or bitter feelings
have been engendered between Dem
ocrats in our little contest, that time
may heal them all. and that wc may
present a united front in the next
charge upon a common foe.
The Hen Law.
The Lancaster Lnhjer thus speaks
on the above subject in connection
also with the Fence and Prohibition
"This is the most important and
perplexing question that our legisla
tors will have to deal with at the en
suing session. The prohibition and
fence questions sink iiAo insignifi
cance beside it. South Carolina to
day has the best liquor law of any
State in the Umoii?the State of
Maine not excepted. Under the pro
visions of the present law the sale of
all intoxicating drinks is confined to
cities, incorporated towns and vil
lages, and is optionnry with the citi
zens of such places to permit iis sale.
The question of fencing the stock
should, and no doubt will remain a
local issue. Hence, our law makers
will in their wisdom yu slow upon
these two issues.
But, upon the repeal of the li?u
law there is a diversity of opinion.
Recently the State Grange, and the
State Agricultural and Mechanical
Society, held a joint meeting at
Greenville, The sentiment express
ed at this meeting was for the im
mediate repeal of the lien law. These
two Societies arc composed of men of
wealth, principally hind owners, sind
consequently never experienced the
pinching necessities of the small fat
liters. One year stgo we were in favor
of the repeal of the lien law, but. the
present condition of the country wili
not warrant it."

The Work of the Comiuit^ioa.
The Commission appointed by the
Legislature to suggest changes to the
Constitution have finished their la
bors und arc ready to present their
report. The majority of the Com
mission oppose the calling of a Stale
Convention for altering the Constitu
tion, but prefer the means which
'?the Coustitut'on itself provides for
its own amendment, which is simple,
inexpensive, easily understood, and
which cun obtain, a, full expression
oftheopinion of the people thereon,
and at the same tinic guard against
tcude, hasty ami impatient lcgisla
The following are the suggestions,
or proposed alterations, which will
be submitted to the Legislature and
hen to the people lor ratification or
Fist; that '.he Judges be elected
to Servo during good behavior. This
wc think will be a great improve
ment ou the present system. The
idea of a Judge condescending at
every recurring election to court the
favor of the peoplein order that hemay
continue iu his oilicc, is contrary to
every principle of the administration
of justice. It is a terrible thought
i for a Judge to become a wire-puller
and intriguer in ord?r to 1 eta in or
secure his position. If there is any
public official who ought to be uii
Iraintiieled and free from every in
j (luctiCC it is-the Judge. The making
j of his term for life or during good be
havior will lift him above such in
llucnees and enable him to dispense
justice with an even hand. The sug
gestion of the Commission on this
head is a good one and we hope and
j believe will be adopted.
Second; that among the crimes
which disfranchise .1 voter, "burg
lary" should be substituted for "rob
bery," hud that larceny, perjury and
forgery should be added. Wc also
commend this alteration, and every
thiug that protects the virtuous
against the vicious of society.
Third; that the Governor and all
the State ofllecrs, and Senators and
111 embers of the H<*use.of Representa
tives should be elected for four in
stead of two years. This provision
we also think a good one as it will
save us from such frequent elections
which tend so much to distract the
co tin try.
Fourth: that County School Com
missioners be appointed by the Stale
Hoard of Education instead of-elect
ed by the people. The object of ibis
j is doubtless to Secure greater intelli
gence and adaptability to the re
sponsibilities of this iiiiportant^illlcc.
in counties where incompetent men
are elected, and especially in Radi
cal counties, this will bean improve
Other suggestions have befell made
by the Commission which we will not
touch upon at this time. Upon, the
whole, we regard the recommenda
tions as good. We a rep uly surpris
ed that nothing bus been done look
ing to the perpetuation of good
government which the people expec
ted but we will O'iiy hope for the best.
