Judging from the violenut opposition
a similar cniactment provoked in
En"gland a few years ago, it might
be surmised that thes( Sucker Statt
politicians are c"breedling seabs."
Hayes Sceks a Conference with
President Hayes has addressed a
duplicate letter to Governor lanip
ton and to Chamberlain, requesting
each oi them to confer with him in
Washington upon the condition oJ
affairs here. Chamberlain, it is maid
is anxious to accept the invitation,
whether as a more piece of toalyisnm
or as a fitting excuse for fleeing the
State, is not known. Tih Ex-Cover
nor naturally turns toWashington,as
the sunflower turns to its God. le
has turned thither often before. He
knows what it is to draw inspira
tion from the fountain head of Radi
calism and to (3teor his political craft
by the north star. The national
capital is just now a more congenial
place for creatures of his ilk than
Columbia. So that an aceep
ance of Hayes' invitation by him is
3ut whether Governor Hampton
will dleeml it adlvisabhle to visit Wash
ington at this juncture is inivolved in
uncertainty. Strong reaisons ex it
both for, and against, this course,
and the matter nmust rest will thie
Governor himismlf, who has
mn'nfested sinigulair saigac ity and
wisdom in all the trying' crises of
the past six months. If tihe lettar
fronm Hayes la anl assumpi11tionl, on his
part to act as supremue arbiter in ow
State affairs, his initerference shouild
be epmined with dis~dain. Long

As the Staito however, is a coin
ponent part of the Union, it would
be well, in order to maintain friend-.

nation, to receivo recognition by the'
States, either through their local
governmenits, or through the ad
ministration at W'ashngton.. A
recognition from Presideit Hayosiis
simply a matter of convenienceo;not
of, necessity. Hampton would still
be Governor, de jure and de facto,
in any event, and should the people
st and firmly together, all the at
tempted interference at Washing
ton would be powerless to foist the
pietender, Chanmberlain, into the
Executive ciair. . Truatworthy
reports frcin Washington however
all agree the question there is not
whether Hampton is governor, but
whether lie will protect Republicans
from murder and maltreatment. To
settle this, Governor Hampton is
invited to Washington. lie must
decide whether to accept the invita
