and was accused of fainting in his
fitst and only battle. And il is with

The True Polioy. ?
No course seems so "Clearly indi
cated as the proper one for the Dem
ocratic parly of Orangeburg to pursue
in the present campaign as the
straight-out policy which won the
Statu in 187G and retained it in 1878.
A 6trict adherence to the same princi
ples is destined lo establish Demo
cratic control (irmly and permanently
in every county of the State at the
approaching election. The best men
should he selected as candidates for
otllee and with reference only to their
fitness for the duties lo be required
of them and their acccptibility to the
groat bodv of Democrats proper.
The polic}' prevailing in some sec
tions of the Slate of running a man
because of his availability with the
colored people without reference
to fitness is ruinous in the first de
gree. Whilst n few votes may be
gained from this quarter, more than
enoug^i will be lost in enthusiasm
aiming our own people and in actual
injury to the cause to balance any
gain we may suppose to accrtu from
such a course. Good men, who hold
the general interest of the govern
ment and the welfare of the people
near at heart, cannot and will not
approve such nominations; because
it ia at variance with every principle
which should actuate the intelligent
voter and diminishes the dignity of
the party without increasing its prob
abilities of success. Nor will tam
pering with galvanized Radicals of
the last six years manufacture be less
endured by those who desire an hon
est government and mean to woik
zealously for the success of the Dem
ocratic party during the present cam
paign. Such folly is patent to every
thinking mind, because the man who
had once dipped his fingers in the
Republican pie, or tasted the sweets
of plunder and spoil or wallowed in
the pool of Radical mire, cannot for
get the flesh pots of Egypt or wipe the
stains of guilt from his hands. Gal
vanized as they may be, they are not
the pure metal und will corrode by
contact with temptalion and crime,
lietter leave them on t'e stool of re
pentance at least a century.
The Club Meeting.
One of the best and most encour
aging signs of the limes is the gener
al rallying of Democrats in and about
the town at the club meeting on
Tuesday evening, anil the unanimity
which prevailed during the entire
proceeding. The meeting was lull?
one of the largest we have ever at
tended. Merchants, whose business
engagements arc pressing, laid them
aside and were out in force ; young
men, who were actively engaged all
day, manifested their appreciation of
the importance of the issues involved
by a general attendance and uctive
participation in the proceeding ; law
yers, even on the threshold of Court,
week, placed aside their piles of legal
pnpcis and devoted themselves lo the
advancement of the cause; farmers
left their homes and their work to en
courage and aid their fellow Demo
crats in devising means and planning;
for Hie coming victory ; indeed every
one that could get out was there, en
thusiastic, hopeful and determined to
light il through to the last ditch. So
far as we have heard from the coun
try clubs the same prompt attend
ance und unity of action prevail
among the members of the party .here
au here. This general muslcr of
Democrats all along the line is more
than eiicouragicg, und means that our
people are politically alive and deter
mined that their best and dearest in
terest shall not.be put (o the hazard
again without au earnest effort lo se
their ultimate triumph. The charac
ter of the delegations means that
there shall be no pandering with
principle; but straight-out Democra
cy mubl fight the battle and win the
victory in the present campaign. It
all means that rascality must hide its
menu head bcfoic the march of hon
esty; that corruption and ignorance
must give place to purity nnd intelli
gence ; and that compromise or bar
tering with simon pure or galvanized
Radicuh) must not and shall not be
swallowed by the Democracy of to
day, and we arc glad it is so,
The Radical Convention.
On the first page of this week's
issue wo publish the proceedings of
the Radical County Convention, and
propose in this article to give ex
pression to tho thoughts suggested to
<?ur mind by tho manner in which
these proceedings were conducted
aud tho appearance of the delegates
aIio took an active part in them.
As a matter of course permission
was. obtained by our reporter to re
main within the hall during the s s
;on, not, however, without promts
I tug that a fair report would be given
and no burlesque wantonly indulged
in at the expense of the assembled
wisdom of the colored race.
By the published list of delegates it
will be seen> that a majority of the
members of this body urc the same
old party hacks and chronic office
seekers who figured in the days of
"good stealing" and political slavery.
There were others here it is true, but
not of the advanced type of our col
ored population who are prepared by
culture to give tone to a public meet
ing or character to those they repre
sent. Indeed wc were standing by
representatives of this class who
seemed as thoroughly disgusted with
the wild disorder nnd savage yelling,
prevailing very nearly all the time,
as any reasonable men could be.
From indications manifesting them
selves on every side, we were led to
conclude that the power and influence
of white leaders, as Boliver and
Webster, were on the deel inc,amount
ing almost to nothing. This is con
firmed by the easy victory achieved
by Strakcr over both these old lead
ers. The election of J. 11 Livings
ton as a delegate was due in the main
to the very creditable indorsement
given him by Strakcr and not to any
personal influence possessed by that
gentleman over the colored delegates.
The days in the career of white Radi
cals are numbered in Orangeburg,
and for the sake of the negro we are
glad of it.
Another noticeable feature in this
Convention is the indisputable fact
that whilst the colored people have
improved, under the four years of
Democratic rule, in general appear
ance and material prosperity, they
have not advanced one step in poli
tics. They are the same narrow
minded, prejud ced creatures to-day
they were eight years ago, when they
yielded a slavish obedience to the
dictation of unscrupulous loaders and
were the willing tools of dishonest
aspirants lo ofliec. Tho same disor
derly conduct cha: actcrizes their po
litical meetings and the greed for of
fice is aa universal among them to
day as then. They arc not disposed
to allow political liberty to any of
their color more than is found in the
Republican party, and that is slavish
enough, heaven knows. A colored
Democrat is as much condemned ami
ostracised by the average colored
Radical as he ever was?it amounts,
in many cases, to" hatred. Political
reticence and treachery toward their
white neighbors seem still to be a ne
cessary element of Radicalism, espe
cially of the old school,and the only in
dependence of thought is found among
those whose associations bring them
in contact with a culture superior to
that possesseil by political leaders
and olllce seekers. As the party now
stands there can be no hope for the
country if the contiol of its govern
ment f.dls again into the hands of the
Radicals. The stealing of the past
will be increased in a tenfold ratio
and will be ns unlimited as the ignor
ance aud prejudices of the masses
and llie dishonesty of their leaders.
Experience is no teacher for the ne
The Anti-Third Termer's Conven
tion of the Republican party will meet
in St. Louis on the Gth of May next.
It is thought that an address will he
issued to the Republicans throughout
the country, setting forth the dangers
that threaten the nation by the elec
tion of Gen. Grant for u third term.
Whether they will go fuither and
nominate a President is not decided,
yet there is a large percentage of the
party in favor of any thing and
any body rather than Gen. Grant.
From the complexion of the Radical
delegations thus far elected, South
I Carolina is not likely to be represent
ed at St. Louis. There are only a
few Anti-Third Termers here. Now
j and then, but few and far between,
an honest Republican of independ
jence and more thnn ordinary political
pluck may be met who is out-spoken
in his opposition to Grant and the
Third Term movement. If the Radi
cals of Orangeburg reflect the general
sentiment of the party in tho State,
to speak against Grant is more than
a man would dare to do and call him
self a Republican. Ostracism would
be the inevitable, result, yet there are
a few Republicans among us?a few
only?who think for themselves and
will act for themselves.
Change of Offices.
Since our last issue wo have read
tlie Protest signed by the bar in the
matter of changing tho Clerk of the
Court's office noticed in our last.
The bar sets forth the following rca
sons why the change should not be
made, all of which wc believe lo be
just, fair and valid reasons: uIt is
proposed by the change to furnish the '
Clerk but a single room for the keep
ing of Records of the Courts of General
Sessions and Common Pleas, embrac
ing the Equity Records besides the
Records of the office of Register of
Mesnc Conveyances (which last of
themselves require a room of consider
able size and are constantly accumu
lating.) It will be utterly impracti
cable for the Clerk to transact the
business of the two olllccs of Clcik
and Register, and keep his records
arranged conveniently for that con
slant reference which is made to them
in a single room. Resides we are on
the eve of n session of the Circuit
Court, and the moving of the records
at this time, and the consequent eon
fusion will greatly interrupt the mem
bers of the bar, and the officers of the
Court in their preparation of the bus
iness of the term. We therefore pro
test against any disturbance of the
records at Ibis time, and against re
stricting the Clerk to one room for his
A report to this effect will be made
at the next term of the Court, and it
is quite likely that the order of Judge
Prcssley will be recalled and the of
fices allowed lo remain undisturbed.

Republican State Convention.
This august body assembled in the
House of Representatives at Colum
bia, on the 27th instant, and organ
ized by electing E. W. M. Mackey
President. From the News and Con
ricr we learn that the Convention is
eomposcd of eighty-two negroes and
thirty-six whites. The counties of
Lexington and Horry failed lo send
delegates, and there were some ab
sentees from other counties. q( the
negroes nearly one third appear in
the fraud committee's report as
thieves and bribe-takers, and the
white delegates, with scarcely an ex
ception, either are, or have been (and
hope to be) Federal olficcholdejs.
In addition to the delegates, there Is
a small army of hangers-on who.have
swarmed in the lobbies all day. The
doughnut stands, which have been
conspicuously absent from the State
House for some years, reappeared to
make the picture complete.
Resolutions pledging the delegates
to Grant were adoplVd without much
Some of the negro members de
nounced the white Radicals of the
State, saying that they had deserted
the colored people, and was only seen
among them when offices were to be
given out. As usual, however, the
white members came in for their full
share of the honors, as the following
list of delegates elected to go to Chi
cagowill show, tho first seven of
whom arc white: D, D. McCall, S.
T. Poiner, C. C. Bowen, W. N. Taft,
W. M. Fine, E. W. M. Mackey, E.

How Watches are Made.

X examine a Socio GOLD Watch, that
aside from the necessary thickness for
engraving and poli&hiug. a large propor

portions in piace. and supply the neces
sary solidity and strength. The surplus
gold is actually needless so far as UTILI

al, specially adapted to the purpose, has
two plates of sol.ll> GOLD soldered one
on each side. The three are then passed
between polished steel rollers, and the
result i.- a strip of heavy plated composi
tion, from which the eases, backs, cen
tres, bezels, &C. arc cut and shaped by
suitable dies and formers. The gold in I
these eases Is sufficiently thick to admit
of all kinds of chasing, engraving and
enamelling; the engraved eines have
been carried until worn perfectly
smooth by time and use without remov
ing the gold.
