Argument in over. The time for
action tai ar.ived. Six weeks hive
been spent ia arnost preparation, and
the Rreat battlu ta to be foujjht today.
The blacks and the whites.the vagrant
and the tixpiyer meet at the polls to
day. How shall the contest end?
Jast as the Democrats elect will the
election result. They have the ma
jority, and if they will exerc'se it as
they have done for the pait sixteen
yean, a g'orloua victory will be
chieved. Then let all work today
with that onergy and enthusiasm
which hupe carrlod the August elec
tions for sixteen years. Men who
would willingly restore the dreadful
past the negro ru'o that prevailed
when the taxpaying whites
were disfranchised will have their
forces marshaled today. They must
not b) allowed to succeed. Every
Democrat who fails to do bis duty by
not voting, helps tbo Republicans,
He gives ail and comfort to the ens
my. We must carry the county by a
rousing majority. 1( those who op
pone negro role and favor white su
premacy, will do their duty, the vie
tory will be overwhelming. If the
Republican ticket succeeds there will
be no lest than half a Aosm negroes
a, the Courthouse as ofliolals, deputies
and aes'stants. Tosscura this object
the negroes are united in compact,
so' id niisi on the color line. Bucb a
spectacle shou'd arouse every man in
whose veins flows the warm blood of
the Caucasian, and In whose heart
throbs the genuine love for the white
race. Every Democrat should feel
that the election depends on his indl
viliul work, and not only vote
but work for the tickot and thus aid
in electing it by a majority that will
be decisive and crushing. Thors is no
excuse for indifference, for the ticket
has the indorsement of publio senti
ment. The business men of the city
are undivided in its support, and its
auccjsa at the ballot box today de
pends outlis individual ollorts of those
who know it 6nght to be elected.
The Yatoo delta is famouB as one of
the most fertile districts upon the
banks of the, Mississippi river, but
such ia its situation that the people
there have always bad serious difficul
ties to contend with, princlpa'ly
through the extreme want in the river
country of means of intercommunica
tion and interior travol. Railroads are
now penetrating this rich region, and
a procpfct is opening for an era of
prosperity such aa has long been
ardently desired. This brightening of
future possibilities carries with It
changes which the people there must
be prepared so to meet as to derive
the greatest possible amount of benefit
from the new opportunities offered,
and to remove or diminish all obstacles
to a permanent Improvement of the
condition of the Yasoo delta. The
Greenville Timti publishes a
call for a convention to assemble at
that place in December, for consulta
tion upon tho most practical measures
lor Improving the agriculture and ad
vancing the industrial development of
the delta, so aa to augment the pros
perity of its occupants. Such a con
vention cannot but be of great utility,
as organiza'ion and union of effort
will produce satisfactory results more
speedily and effectually than can be
accomplnhed by individual efforts,
which are Mow in operation and too
often discordant as to objects and

Liberia, in Africa, is wbere a colony
of American colored people are etriv
iagtorpread civilizing influences with
in the dark continent. As the influ
ences exerted are American In or gin
and chatacter, and ai the cjlony was
a development of American philan
thropic, Liberia must always be a
place of interest to us. Gen. Lewis,
the American Consul at Sierra Leone,
has recently mado a report to our gov
eminent that gives the latest informa
tion of what is going on there. The
traveler along the west coast of Africa,
eays tho report, finds at the French
colony of Benegul railroads, telegraphs
and the busy routine of commercial
and political life. The prospect of
the French among the natives, how
ever, is not cheering, as they are op
posed to French pretensions and ef
forts. An American trading houso on
the Gambia river is doing a successful
business. There are other French,
Portuguese and German settlements.
Sierra Leone is seeking an extension
of territory under British protection;
there is an aoti-Amerlcin house here.
On the Manna river, 200 miles from
Sierra Lsone, begins Liberia. It extendi
400 miles a'ongths coast to Sin Tiedio
river.and Is considered one of the most
fertile of the West African settlements.
It is accomplishing a great work for
that pirt of Africa. The people have
a constitution modeled after our own,
with an executive, a legislature and
civil service. The religion is Protestant
and most of the eecta have schools and
clin ches there. Acollege established
by Boston citizens is, as yet, hardly a
success. The resources of the country
are rich, and with cipiUl could be
very productive. Liberia coffee is
In repu'e, the land and climate
are favorable to its growth, which
is extending. Immigrants from tho
United Slates have of late given it
much attention. Some of the
Llhorian firmers, nil colored, have
made money, and occasionally
tike their trips to Europo on
business or pleasure. Fifty thou and
intelligent negroes are wanted to pep
ulnte the country ilf y miles from the
coast. The imports and exports are
becoming important but the country
has cipac'ty to double them easily,
Steamors call weekly at some of the
port, yet, although the settlement is
American, there is not an Amrican
trading house in any part of the Re
public, but American vessels occa
sionally trade, along tho coast. The
Consul deairoa to see Americau enter

believes effort a would bo successful and
remunerative, besides being of great
advantage to the country. For young

The acquisition by foreigners
millions of acres of land in this conn
try has for some time attracted the
attention of our people, and measures
are before Congress for abating the
evil. The United States Conail at
Dundee, Scotland, Mr. A. B. Wood, in
a report to the State Department, has
made known facta obtained on that
aids of the water, showing how exton
stve and threatening this abuse is,
He finds that capitalists in Dundee
have 117,500,000 invested in property
in this country. Furthnr inquiries
brought to his knowledge the exist
ence of forty-two trust, investment
and mortgage companies, twenty
three cattle and land companies, and
sixteen mining companies, having a
total capital of $300,000,000. These
Investments are paying from
to 12) per eent in moat
instances; one mining company was
paying IS per cent. Though nnable to
obtain a full statement, the Consul
traced up ownerships of 11,973,452
acres of land in fee simple, and 1,467(
666 acres on lease. There is enough In
all this to arouse the attention of every
American citizen. The New Orleans
Pteoywwvroferring to these facts, says
"It is evident that ws are going to
landlordism of the worst phase. It is
Infinitely preferable to have that land'
lordisn which Is composed of Indi-
vidua! landlords than thai sort made
up of heartless and soulless corpora
tions. We have been grandly talking
for fcalf a century about the great
evils of landlordism in Ireland and
England, and meantime the landlords
are coming over here in corporation
form and investing in our own toil
directly and indirectly the earn
irgi which they have saved."
When the spread of population
causes much of this foreign held land
to become valuable, what ia to pre
vent these foreign landlords running
whole village;, and even towns, and
exacting extortionate rents from herd-
working farmers? It looks as if the
rackreot Irish system was to be re
peated upon our own soil. Perhaps
the reader says that American citi
zens will resist, they will never sub
mit to the yoke that has so long been
i i ye ted around Irish necks. Snpposo
their resistance be successf al, at what
price would success be bouglit? Vio
lence and bloodshed. Shall we allow
a system to continue that bos such
consequences before it? By attention
to the mat'.er now we may save untold
evil and suffering in the future. In
the struggle that would, ia the end,
follow the corporate landlord system,
some of Mr. George's ideas might be
deemed app'iuablp, and euch a possi
bility should stir up all our home land
owners to oppose vigorously the
monopolizing of onr land by foreign
capitalists and corporations.
There is both principle and money
in voting the Dsmocratio ticket today
tho principle of preferring whit9 to
negro rule the supremacy of I nielli
gent white men to the rule of ignorant
negroes. And money will be made by
defeating the reckless, irresponsible
party which has ruined wherever it
uled in the South.
Meeting of (be Ntate Convention at

leader of the movement, B. R. Ermore

For eeveral months pest Mr.
Tilden bas enjoyed unusual health for
