A called meeting of the Orangeburg
Court House Democratic Club was
bold in tbe Engino Hall on Tuesday
evening last, Vice-President A. S.
Hydrick in Ibo chair. After reading
tbe minutes of tbe last meeting, tbe
President instructed tbe Secretary to
read a letter of Mr. B. Frank Slater
resigning tbo Presidency of tbo club.
On motion tbo resignation of Mr.
Slater was accepted and Dr. A. S.
Hydrick, elected by ballot to fill the
vacancy. Col. J. C. Edwards was
elected by acclamation to fill the po
sition of First Vice-President made
vacant by the promotion of Dr. Hyd
rick to tbe Presidency. By voto of
the club it was ordered that the Exe
cutive Committee increase its number
if necessary, to five members and to
appoint such additional members to I
I the working Committee of tbo club asl
tho'exigencies of tbo service demand.?
The business for which the mcotingB
was called being finished, and a fnul
attendance in tbo house, tbo following ?
gentlemen wore call on to address the 1
meeting : Hon. S. Dibblo, Capt. F. 1
M. Wannamakcr, Gen. Jas. F. Izlar, I
Col. M. 1. Browning, S. R. Milli
champ and H. G. Sbcridan. Each of
the speakers made eloquent appeals
to tbe Democracy of Orangeburg and
urged every man to lay aside person
al prejudices und to address himself
zealously to tbo work before him. The
importance of the prcseut crisis was
fully presented and tbe earnest atten
tion of the audience and the frequent
applause which greeted tbe happy
points of the speakers bore unmista
kcable evidence of the enthusiasm
which existed. Thcro is no longer, if
it ever existed, a trace of apathy or
luke-warmness in the Court House
Democracy ; and tbo party's majority
at this precinct will be a harty well
done to their faith and zeul in the
cause of good Government in Orange
burg County. Tbe club will meet a
iiain on next Tuesday evening at

Oim Sentiments.?We fully agree
with the Greenville News in the fol
lowing paragraph: "If shooting a
man is ever justifiable?as we believe,
it is?the attempt to shoot Day at'
Hunt8ville will certainly meet with
goneral approval. A man who nsea
bis power as an editor toblast the
charaeted of a woman because she is
connected with his enemy, deserves to
die. We hope the South will never
become 'civilized' to the extent of
discountenancing swiftj and sure ven
gance on the journalist or other men
who attacks a woman's person or
name. It is the highest crime recog
nized in the Southern code of morals
and should remain so. .He who com
mits it is tbe most cruel ot assassins,
and the basest of cowards."
