The Republicans wrecked a train loaded
with the Democratic speakers in Hampton
County last week. Fortunately no one was
hurt, and the Democratic boom keeps grow?

In voting see that the namo of each of

Every citizen of South Carolina owes
his whole influence and effort to his Slate

It is now evident that the next Con?
gress of the United States will be Repub?

this fact will be more than likely to make
honors easy by electing a Democratic
President. So long as the country dis?
trusts both parties, as it evidently does,
it will punish both by giving neither full
control of the government.
_ The New York Herald says that the
Democrats are wondering what has
struck them since the October elections,
and volunteers the information that it is
the "solid South" that has struck them.
The Herald is mistaken. The South has
struck no one yet, but will proceed to
knock the bottom out of the Republican
bucket on the 2nd of November.
The Supreme .Court has decided the
Simpson-Willard contested election case
for the Chief Justiceship in favor of
Judge Simpson. The opinion, which is
very voluminous, was rendered by
Judge Hudson, and is said to be one of
the ablest, documents ever presented in
our Courts. Tho opinion was filed on tbe
15th inst., and was concurred in by tho
Because you have nominated a County
ticket for the Anderson Democracy, do
not feel that you have discharged your
duty to yourself or your State. It is im?
portant to have tho County ticket elected,
but eveu that is a matter of very little
importance compared with the success of
our Electoral and State ticket. It would
'bo better for oar wbole County ticket to bo
beaten than for a single nominee on our
Electoral or State or Congressional ticket
to be left ont. It is. therefore, of the ut?
termost importance for every citizen to
vote and to vote the whole ticket straight.
The success of the Republican party in
Ohio and Indiana has decided the Na?
tional Executive Committee to make a
determined effort to break tho Demo?
cratic solidity of the South. Their efforts
will be directed mainly to the First, Sec?
ond and Fifth Congressional Districts in
this State, and the doubtful Districts in
Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama,
Florid ;, Tennessee and Mississippi. Sam.
Lee, the representative on the Committee
from this State, gave a picturesque ac?
count of the situation in South Carolina
at its meeting in New York last week,
asserting that with proper efforts the Re?
publicans could carry the State for Gar
field and Arthur, and that their nomi?
nees for Congress in the First, Second
and Third Districts could also be elected.
There is no doubt that the Republicans
mean to exert their every effort this year
in the'South, and it behooves the Demo?
crats to not only to be on their guard,
. but to work with all their energy and de?
termination for the election of their Con?
gressional and Electoral nominees. We
should not lose sight of a single point,
nor should we be the least discouraged by
tho defeat in Indiana and Ohio, as there
is a reasonable bpoe that at least tho first
named of these States will go Democratic
in November. Let there be work?de?
termined, petslstent and untiring work

A very disastrous fire occurred in the
city of Charleston on last Sunday after?
noon in which abont $500,000 worth of
cotton, real estate and shipping was de?
stroyed, nearly all of which, fortunately,
was covered by insurance. The fire
originated on tho North Commercial
wharf from a pipo or cigar, it is sup?
posed, and before assistance could be
obtained sufficient to extinguish the
,- flames they spread to "Vanderhorst wharf
and to several steamships lying hard by.
When first discovered tho firo was con?
fined to a singlo bale, and if it had been
during tbe week, when the streets and
wharves are crowded with people, in all
probability the burning balo might have
been moved in time to avert the disaster.
As it was, however, assistance could not
be procured in time to prevent the spread
of the flames, which as soon as they got
once fairly started were soon driven by
the strong wind with lightning rapidity
3q the mass of cotton in the sheds, and in
ive minutes after the first alarm the firo
was almost beyond control. Several se?
rious accidents occurred during the day,
me of which proved fatal, Mr. William
Hinter, the second mate of the steam
ship "Rcdford," being killed by a falling
timber while directing tho work of ex?
tinguishing tho flames that wero fast
consuming his vessel. Just at this time
the work of the fire is a heavier loss to
Chaileston than it would have been at
any other season of the year, as the
?wharfs destroyed were important to her
cotton shipping interests.
OHIO AND INDIANA.
Tho October elections are over, and
they have gone strongly against tho
Democrats. It is a disappointment to
many, but tho close observor for months
past has seeu the evidence of shrewd,
cunning and skillful- Republican work
in Ohio and Indiana, which must have
made him, however strongly he desired
it otherwise, dread a Republican victory
iu these States in October. Tho Demo?
crats have as usual mado a good fight in
each of these States, but tho Republicans
have carried them, and the causes arc
very easily noted. Tho Republicans
havo conducted an aggressive campaign,
while the Democrats have plodded along
trying to avoid wounding any person's
feelings, and therefore fearing to pleaso
any person particularly. The Demo?
crats in Indiana made a very unfortu?
nate nomination for Governor, Landers,
their candidate, being toe much of a
Greenbacker for tho hard money men,
and not quite Greenbacker enough for
the real Greenbackers. He is a weak
man, a poor debater, and even unpopu?
lar in his owu party- Then, Mr. Eng?
lish is also unpopular in many portions
of Indiana, so that his presence is a load
instead of an advantage to the ticket.
On the other hand the Republicans se?
lected a strong, popular and unobjection?
able man for Governor. They prated
over tho "solid South*' and floated the
"bloody shirt" until they obtained all of
the benefits it could confer, and then
dropping it at the last moment they
seized upon the tariff issue and by hold?
ing up the dangers of free trade to the
largo Western manufacturing and min?
ing interests they made votes upon it.
To cap the whole work, they voted
crowds of negroes and spent quantities
The result places the Presidential elec?
tion in doubt. If Indiana votes differ?
ently in November there will bo no trou?
ble in electing Hancock, while if it votes
for Garfield the voto will still bo very
close, with chances slightly favoring
Hancock. There is no cause for discour?
agement in these elections. It is simply
an extra inducement to close ranks and
go to work. The next two weeks will
probably change the whole result.
An Address to the Indiana Democracy.
Indianapolis, October 15. .
The Democratic Executive Committee
have issued the following address:
2b the Democratic and Independent Voters
of Indiana :
The result of the election last Tuesday
is a deep disappointment to us all. The
extent of the success which the Republi?
can party has achieved in this State is as
much a surprise to the Republicans as it
is to the Democrats, and proves that the
majority of the Republican party were
as ignorant of the means which their cor?
rupt leaders were employing as we were.
The temporary loss of our State is a
calamity which time will enable us to
retrieve, but the injury which our free
institutions will sustain resulting from
the frauds and corruption practiced by
Republican leaders to secure their tri?
umph is incalculable. The causes
which enabled the Republican party to
succeed in the election are now plain.
They were the partial success of their
scheino to Africanize our State for politi?
cal purposes, the corrupt use of money
for the purpose of obtaining votes, the
importation and use of repeaters pro?
tected by deputy marshals, and the aid
derived by them from the use of the
Federal machinery of election nnder
pretense of supervising the election of
members of Congress.
In the Presidential election we will
not have to encounter these forces to the
same extent as in our State election.
The corruption fund will have to be
divided among many States. Thoir re?
peaters will be all at home, and those
who were discharged from arrest by
deputy marshals on straw bail will not
be likely to make their appearance in
iu our State soon again. "We shall have no
Federal marshals or Federal machinery
to contend against. We aro thoroughly
united in our counsels; whatever our
adversaries may say to the contrary is
untrue. We therefore call upon you not
to relax any of your efforts. Put some
new life and energy into your County
and township organizations, and take all
measures in your power to bring out
your full strength to the polls. The same
vote polled by us in October if polled in
November will secure to us the State.
The average majority against us at the
late election will not exceed 4,000, and
may fall below that figure. This major
ty can and, in our opinion, will bo over?
come in the Presidential election. A
change of three voters in each precinct
will accomplish it. Romember you havo

a retreat, and he commands an army

To the Democrats of the Union.
The Democratic National Executive
Commirtee havo issued the following ad?
To the Democratic and Conservative Voters
of the Country:
The election of President and Vice
President is now before you. State and
local dissensions are eliminated from tho
issues of the day. The magnitude of a
victory or a defeat can ouly be estimated
by the force and means employed in se?
curing it. By fraud and corruption the
people of the country wore defeated in
their purpose in 1876, and tho rightfully
elocted President was kept from office.
With the combined capital of the Repub?
lican party, aided by repeated assess?
ments upon the army of officeholders,
with the power of the Fedoral govern?
ment represented by United States mar?
shals at the polls, with intimidation,
fraud and a resort to every corrupt appli?
ance known to Republican methods con?
centrated in two States, our adversaries
have succeeded in procuring tho proba?
ble return of their local candidates. Can
it bo possible that in every state through?
out this broad land the same methods
can be brought to bear that were used by
the Republican managers in Indiana and
Ohio ? Can tho great States of Now York,
New Jersey, Connecticut, California,
Colorado, Nevada and New Hampshire
be bought, intimidated and defrauded?
Even without tho vote of Indiaua, which
we believe will be redeemed in Novem?
ber, with Now York and New Jersey and
the States that are conceded to us, in?
cluding Maine, tue election of our candi?
date is assured.
The Republican party have put in
nomination for President and Vice Pres?
ident two men who, by tho admission of
their own party and press, arc unworthy
of your confidence and your suffrages.
It is impossible that fifty millions of
intelligent and patriotic peoplo will con?
sent to place themselves upon the hu?
miliating level thus prepared for them by
the Republican managers.
Fellow-citizens, tho first day's repulse
at Gettysburg ended on tho 3d, with
Hancock in tho front in glorious victory.
Tho victory secured us our Union. The
question is not the preservation of the
Union, but of constitutional government.
Hancock is now, as then, in front. The
repulse is now, as then, an omen of vic?
tory, which will secure to coming gener?
ations the inestirnablo blessings of civil

THE TARIFF BUGBEAR.
A Letter to Gen. HuncocU and Ills Itcply.
Morkistowx, Oct. 11, 1880.
My Dear General: My attention is called
to-day to an interview or reported inter?
view had with you by a person represent?
ing tho Paterson Guardian of this State.
As I read tho report it seems to ino you
were very imperfectly understood or in?
differently reported. I came to this con?
clusion because of my knowledge of your
views upon tho tariff question. Tho re?
port does you injustice. The subject is
one which our manufacturing friends are
very solicitous about, and very properly
so. I regret that your views upon the
tariff question as I understand them to
ho had not found fuller expression in
your letter of acceptance. If the mis?
representations of your tariff view s con?
tinue would it not bo wise and just to
tako some occasion to put yourself right?
Very truly yours,
Theo. F. Randolph.
Gen. W. S. Hancock, Governor's Island.
Governor's Island, N. Y., October 12.
My Dear Governor?I havo received
your favor of tho 11th instant. In my
letter of acceptance I expressed my full
sympathy with our American industries.
I thought I spoko plainly enough to
satisfy our Jerse}' friends regarding my
tariff views. Iain too sound an Ameri?
can to advocate any departure from the
general feature of a policy that has been
largely instrumental in building up our
industries and keeping Americans from
the competition of tho underpaid labor of
Europe. If we intend to remain honest
and pay the public debt, as the good peo?
ple of all parties do, and if wo mean to
administer the functions of government,
then wo must raiso a revenue in some
way or other. With a reunited and har?
monious country we shall certainly in
time pay off the public debt, but the ne?
cessity of raising money for the adminis?
tration of the government will continue
as long as human nature lasts, All par?
ties agree that tho best way for us to raise
a revenue is largely by tariff. So far as
we are concerned, therefore, all talk
about free trade is folly. But tho tariff
question will probably be treated with
justice to all our interests and people by
some such bill as Eaton's. I believe
that a commission of intelligent experts,
representing both the Government and
American industries, will suggest tariff
measures that will relieve us of any
crudities and inconsistencies existing in
our present laws, and confirm to us a
system which will bo judicious, just,
harmonious and incidentally protective,
as well as stablo in its effect. I am very
Winfield S. Hancock.

Hem v Ward Beecher's Latest Abuse of
This is .what that sanctimonious old
hypocrite, the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher,
said in his political harangue at the
Cooper Institute, New York, on Tuesday
Gentlemen, the sword may slay, but it
cannon convince, and Southern men are.
just as much besotted with State sovereign?
ty to ('ay as they were before the war. The
Southern mind is unchanged on this sub?
ject. Will you stand up to the doctrine
you vindicated with your swords? The
doctrines of Calhoun are taught in every
principal seminary of the South, just as
when Lee led on - the rebel hosts. Now
they Siave taken to themselves the rem?
nants of the Democratic party. If they pet
?possession of the country we will have to
stand Democratic doctrines. They will
never prevail, though they may have a
victory to-day or to-morrow. There will
never be peace on this continent until
peace is founded on right principles. If
the Democratic party, with the South, goes
into the possession "of the government we
will r' upon the verge of further troubles.
Republican principles must be the heart
ana soul of this country in the future, as
they have been for the last twenty years.
The South for fifty years administered the
institutions of this country, and I must say
she administered them pretty badly. For
more than fifteen years before the war her
councils were a series of blunders. Just
now t ie South seems determined to make
one more great blunder. She drewoffsul
lenly after the war and refused the right
hand of Republican friendship. Not one
State in all the South would take tho prof?
fered hand of President Hayes. [Cheers.]
That was a gigantic blunder. If she had
been willing to accept the situation there
would have been no difficulty to-day.
But they went with the Democratic party?
these two defeated fanatics cost their
fortunes together. And we, as one great
determined State, are resolved that they
shall ..ot deprive us now of that which we
fought for and won. We will fight it cut
on this line if it takes twenty five summers.
[Applause.] You cannot inocculate this
country with the virus of State sovereignty
that suckled at the black bosom of Slavery.
[Cheers.] You cannot do it.
The County Treasurer of Hampton
On Thursday night, the 7th inst., Major
W. J. Goodiug, our County Treasurer,
was tho victim of a bold robbery, under
the following circumstances:
Upon reaching the home of Mr. Charles
Terry, at Gillisonville, on the night
above mentioned, Major Gooding and his
assistant, W. R. Hammond, Esq., put
up for the night. The valise, conta ining
funds to the amount of ?3,000 and valu?
able County papers, besides clothing,
etc., was placed under the bed in the
room which the treasurer had occupied
on several occasions previous. While
Major Gooding, Mr. Hammond and the
family were at supper thieves entered
through a back window and made off
with their boot3\ As soon as tho loss
was discovered immediate steps were
taken to catch the thieves and recover
the treasure, but tho night being dark
and tho rain falling steadily, nothing
could bo accomplished be}'ond examin?
ing and tracing the tracks of two persons
to a cane-brako or s?vamp not far distant
from tho house by tho aid of lanterns.
One track wan that of a bare foot and the
other apparently that of a No. 9 shoe, as
well as could be discerned in fhe heavy
falling rain, which foot-prints were
doubtless boina: rapidly obliterated.
Skilled detectives were summoned as
soon as practicable, and it is thought the
robbers will ere long be in the hands of
the law. Suspicion points to certain par
tics, butis thought best to ventilate tho
subject no further at present.
It is hardly necessary to say that
neither the State nor tho County nor the
sureties of Major Gooding will lose any?
thing, as ho has mrdo arrangements by
which, as he states in his card, "every
dollar will bo reported and paid out as
usual." The sympathies of every citizen
of Hampton County are with Major
Gooding in his misfortune, and his self
sacrificing course demands respect and
admiration. During the years of his
public service, as well as in the affairs of
private life, his record has been bright
and clear, and this loss commands our
heartiest sympathy.?Hampton Guardian.

Tho address issued by the National
Republican Committee oil tho 15th inst.
congratulates the people of Indiana and
Ohio, and the Republican party all over
tho country upon tho success of tho par?
ty in Indiana and Ohio, and also upon
the bright prospects of victory of the
national ticket in November. At the
same time it improsses upon tho people
everywhere tho importance of not relax?
ing their efforts in tho least, but of press?
ing their opponents, whilo they are suf?
fering from their recent defeat, and mak?
ing thoir victory next month doubly
sure. It adds that if every Republican
will go earnestly to work, Garheld and
Arthur will receive tho olectoral voto of

discouraged by tho defeats In Indiana

routine round of duties with undis?
turbed countenance and in good spirits.
In response to a question whether he
thought that tho Republican -dctory in
the Stnte election in Indiana was any good
reason lor believing that tho Stale would
go Republican in tho Presidential elec?
tion, "No reason at all," was the emphat?
ic reply. "There were local issues at
stake in Indiana which would have no
effect in a national political contest.''
Sherman and Hampton.
Washington, October 10.
Secretary Sherman to-day furnished for publi?
cation the following correspondence, consisting of
four letters, which have passed between himself
and Senator Hampton, of South Carolina :
Doggers Springs, September 17, 1S3C?Ilou.
John Sherman, Secretary of the Treasury: Sir?
Some days ago I saw a report of your speech at the
conference held by the National Republican Com?
mittee at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, New York, aud
you were quoted as having used the folio wing lan?
guage: "And now you aro asked to surrender all
you have done into the hands of Wado Hampton
and the ku klux and the little segment in the
North that is called the Democratic party." May
I ask If you used these words, and if you did so,
did you mean to connect mo directly or indirectly
with what is known as the ku klux klan ? Re?
questing an early reply, addressed to me, care of
August Schell, Esq., New York, I am, very respect?
fully, your obedient servant,
"Washington, D. C, September 21.?To Hon.
Wado Hampton, New York: Sir?Your noto of
the 17th inst. is received, in which you inquire
whether at the conference held by the National
Republican Committee at the Fifth Avenue Hotel,
New York, I used the language attributed to me
as follows: "And now you are asked to surrender
all you have done Into tho hands of Wado Hamp?
ton and tbo ku klux, and the little segment in the
North that is called the Democratic party." In
reply I hare to advise you that whilo I don't re?
member the precise language, and presume the re?
porter correctly slated in a condensed way his idea
of what I said, I no doubt spoke of you as a leading
representative of the Democratic party in tho
South, and referred to the ku klux klan as a rep?
resentative of the barbarous agencies by which the
Democrats have subverted tho civil and political
rights of the Republichns of the South. I did not
connect you personally with the ku klux klan.
Indeed, 1 know you had in one or two important
instances resisted and defeated its worst impulses.
I appreciate tho sense of honor which makes you
shrink from being named In connection with it.
Still you and your associates and leading men In
the South now enjoy the benefits of political
flower derived from atrocities of the ku klux klan,
n which I include numerous aliases by which it
has from time to timo been known in the South.
Your power in the Southern States rests upon the
actual crimes of every measure in the code of
crimes, from murder to the meanest form of ballot
box stuffing committed by the ku klux klan and its
kindred associates, and as you know some of the
worst ol them committed since 1877, when you und
they gave most solemn assurances of protection to
the freedmen of the South. These crimes are all
aimed at the civil and political rights of the He
publicans in the South, and as I believe but for
these agencies the very Stato that you represent,
as well as many other States in tho South, would
be represented both in tho Senate and House by
Republicans. But for these crimes, the boast at?
tributed to you that the 138 solid Southern votes
would be cast for tho Democratic ticket would be
but idle vaporing, but now we feel that it is sober
truth. While I have no reason to believe that you
or your Northern associates personally partici- |
pated in the offenses I have named, yet while they
enjoy the fruits of these crimes, yon may, in the
logic of morals, be classed as joint copartners with
tho ku klux, and the policy which thus far has
been successful in securing political power in the
South and which it is hoped by tho aid of a small
segment of the Democratic partv in the North,
may be extended to all departments of the govern?
ment. In this sense I spoke of you, tho ku klux
aud the Northern Democratic party. Permit me
in conclusion in frankly answering your question
to say that the most fatal policy for tho South
would be by such agencies as I havo mentioned to
secure again the political ascendancy in this coun?
try, for I assure you that tho manhood and inde?
pendence of the North will certainly continue the
struggle until every Republican in the South shall
have free and unrestricted enjoyments of equal
civil and political privileges?a fair vole, fair
count, free speech and a free press. Agitation
made necessary to secure such results, may greatly
effect injuriously the interests of the people of the
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Charlottsville, Va., October 13, 1880.?Sir:
Your letter has been received, and as you don't
disclaim the language to which I called your atten?
tion, I have only to say that in using it, you uttered
what was absolutely falso, and what you knew to
be false. My address will be Columbia, S. C. I am
your obedient servant,

Sir: I havo to acknowledge the receipt of your
note of the 1st instant, handed me unopened by
Mr. C. McKinley a lew moments ago, after my re?
turn from the West. I bad this morning read
what purported to be an extract of a speech made
by you, published in the Charleston News and
Courier, and upon your general reputation as a
gentleman had denied thatr you had mado such a
speech or written such a letter as is attributed to
you in that paper. What I stated to you in my
letter of September 21st, I believe to bo true, not?
withstanding your denial, and it can bo shown to
be true by public record, and as a matter of his?
tory. As you had, long before your letter was de?
livered to me, seen proper to make a public state?
ment of your views of tho correspondence, I will
give it to the press without note or comment, and
lot the public decide between us.
