C JuDez MAQSEy is a regularly en
rolled member of the Chester
Democratic Club. $e favors pri
mary elections as being the most
satisfactory mode of nominating.
A GENTLEMAN of great political
experience, lately returned from the
North, says that Grant will be the
Republican presidential nominee in
1880, and that the c,mtest will be
very bitter. Much will depend on
the control of Congress.
CHARLESTON'S new artesian well is
nineteen hundred and twonty.-f.vo
feet deep, and pours out about two
hundred and soventy-five thousand
gallons of water daily. The con
tract price was $16,500, but the
actual cost was $22,500. The News
and Courier favors the boring of
four such wells, so as to afford the
city a full supply of good water, of
which great scareity now prevails..

THE ANNUAL ADDRESS before the
South Carolina Historical Society
was delivered in Charleston on
Monday eveninp by Mr. J. P.
Kennedy Bryan, a son of Judge
Bryan. The subject was the history
of the State in its relation to civili
zation. The speaker forcibly de
picted the triumph and develop
ment of moral order in human
history from the earliest time to
the present, and especially the part
South Carolina has borne. Mr.
Bryan, in this work, is a profound
thinker and an accomplished
rhotorician, and his effort on this
occasion was masterly.
The State Convention.
The State Democratic Executive
Committee has called the State
Convention to meet in Columbia on
Thursday, the 1st of August. This
will give three months for the
regular State campaign, much
longer than is necessary. The time
is fixed thus early to gratify the
wishes of those who desire a long
campaign. In our opinion the 1st
of September would have been early
enough. The difference, however,
is not important. County officials
and Legislators can be nominated
The Election for Sheriff and County
At the general election this fall
the people of Fairfield, besides
voting for State officers and a Con
gressman, will elect three members
of the House, a probate judge, a
pchool commissioner and a coroner,
these oflices becoming vacant this
year. Owing to the inscrutable
wisdom or excessive stupidity of the
0onstitbutional convention in fixing
the tenire of offRce, it so happens
that the termn of the sheriff and
the eounty commissioners will not
expire until the summer of 1879,
e.nd that of the clerk in 1881; so
that if elections be hl at the time
vacancies occur, the people of
Pairfield will be required to under
go the excitement and demoraliza-.
tion of a campaign over~y year, until
the constitution is amended'. This
would be a great anrnoyance to~ the
people, and an actual injury to. the
material interests of the county.
As every gqod citizen should takQ
sa active interest in all political
.uestions for the present, it is
esential that these q.uestions be
~ ~ . rsented as seldom as possible.,
Ano in two years is enough to call
Ao voters out. In this cone
ition' of affairs, it seem~s that much
biennial general elections, and
filling, then, not only the vacancies
immediately pOnding, but also
those that will occur within a
twelve-month. No earthly cause
prevents the election, by
the people of Fairfield, of a
sheriff and of three county
commissioners this fall who shall
assume their dutie in August or
September, 1879. No law exists
compelling an election within a
month or two of the expiration of a
torin. It is better, of course, as a
general rule, to observe this prac..
tice, in order to got officials frosh
from the people; but this reason,
has not a straw's weight in con
parison with the throwing of a
county into a political turmoil. In
the case of Congressmen it usually
happens that a member does not
assume the duties of his office for
more than a year after his elec iion.
Why should not a sheriff or county
commissioner also possess his so ul
in patience ?
The good peoplo of Fairfield are
bound to undergo considerable
electioneering this fall. Why shall
they not take the infliction in a
lump ?. It is almost as easy to
shake a hundred candidides. by the
hand as fifty. Besides, the opening
up of four new offices to be filled,
would diminish the pressure at
present existing, and greatly ielieve
the voter who has more friends.
than there are vacancies.
For all those reasons it secms
expedient that the. people shall
make a wholesale business, and fill
all the offices at once, so they may
be unmolosted till the grand contest
of 1880. TIIE NEwS AND HERALD has
no axe to grind, and this measure
is advocated with no occult design.
But it does believe it a matter of
importance to save the people, in
their impoverished condition, from
all unnecessary worry and dis
traction from business, The miatter
rests with the proper authority
whether to call an extra election or
not. The people should decide one
way or the other,, as. their wishes in
the premises will be gratified..
A SINGULAR LAWSUIT.-Genoral
Grant's visit to England has given
riso to a singular lawsuit. The
corporation of Sunderlanci enter,
tamed him when he was in the
North, and charged the ratepayers
with the expenises of a rpecial train,
the ringing of bells and the music
of bands. WVhen it was done there
was the bill to be paid, and it was
straightwamy charged to the borough
fund. Some acute ratopayers ob
jected to the payment of the ex
penses out of thme borough fund,
on the ground that the money col
lected wvas directed by the statute
to be applied to certain p)uriposes,
of which the reception of General
Grant was not one. The Queen's
Bench Division upheld the objection
to the payment, and consequently
the gentlemen who p)romoted the
recep)tion will be gratified with the
opportunity of paying the expenses,
not over $500, out of their own

The Red Sea would reach from

"Ah I been here often, have you ?"
