WINNS3ORO, S. a.
Tuesday, May 28. 1878. -t XZ4AXB DATIB, EDITOR. .nX0 A. XZOLDa, AssooIATE EDITOR. Ta DEMoRATs, of Pennsylvania, have nominated Senator Dill for governor. The Philadelphia Times says he will be defeated. The Washington correspondent thinks differently, but says that his nomi. nation is the result of a combination between Senator Cameron for the Republicans and Senator Wallace for the Democrats, by which both will be re-elected to the Senate. TaE REPUBLIOANS IN Congress endeavored to make capital by as, serting that the Potter resolution was meant to despose Hayes. Yet the very next day when Harrison, of Illinois, introduced a resolution pros viding for an investigation in Oregon and South Carolina, and asserting the validity of Hayes' title, the Republicans refused to vote, thereby defeating a quorum and preventing the passage of the resolution. This closes their mouths effectually. The fact is, there are more Republicans in Congress than Democrats who would like to see Hayes pulled out of his seat, and it is rumored that they are really the ones pulling the wires in the investigation. WE HAVE RECENTLY had nothing to say on the European question, be cause nothing worth mentioning has transpired. One day there are rumors of war ; the next, rumors of peace. Count Schouvaloff, the Russian Minister to England, has been on an errand to the Czar, and has returned. It is now 'thought that the prospects of peace are brighter. England and Austria are pronounced in full accord, while the Czar will yield in the matter of Bessarabia but is bent upon erect ing the State of Bulgaria. The war policy of Disraeli has just been sustained in the Commons by an immense majority. This is not an indication of hostilities, but an assurance that if war become neces sary England will enter into it with the greatest vigor. OF ALL SUDSTANOEs and com pounds in the world, nothing is more harmless, in the general opinion, than stove polish. One * ~ would as soon dream of beating out1 a man's brains with a tallow candle, or running him through the body with a handful of soft soap as to endeavor to end his days with stove polish. But a recent event in New York eity showvs that one kind of stove polish at least is as dangerous as dynamite or gunpowder. A few weeks ago, a Mrs. Cole, who had been married but three days, in assuming charge of her new home was engaged in polishing the parlor stove with a compound known as "Boyntoni's Liquid Stove Polish,' when the stuff ignited and exploded with such violence as to envelope her in flames, and to inflict ftal injuries from wvhich she died in a short time. At the coroner's in. quest it was ascertained that the polish was a compound of naphtha, gasoline and black lead, and that it 4 would explode if brought within half a foot of a flame. The mer chant who sold the stuff knew its dangerous properties but neglected to give any caution, and in conse-. quence a life is lost, People cannot be too careful in using unknown compounds, especially such as betray the presence of kerosent, benzine or any other substance c f the petroleum group. More Troops. Straws show which way the wind bloive. Several announcements have been made that Hayes will no longer fight his party. He is also reported as saying that the South has treated him badly, and occa sionally we hear that he is going to get even with her. Coupled with all these oomes@the startling state mont made upon' o door of the Ronee by' Congres an :Ellie, of When asked to particularize he asserted that two districts in South Carolina, three in Mississippi and some in Louisiana, beside others, would be invaded. Without giving his authority he pledged his word that his phophecy would be verified. Of course the possibility of such a theory was scouted by the quid nunces. It would'have seemed pre posterous a short time ago. But Hayes has backed down from his former policy so completely, of late, and has evinced such a desire to get into the fold, that we may well fear his acquiescence in the plots of his party leaders. With them the control of the next House is a necessity, and to gain it they will use every method of intimidation possi, ble. A facile president is all that is needed to bring back Ruger, Merrill and Detrobriand to the scenes of their former disgrace. Those who argue that the Radicals "will not dare do such a thing," should have learned experience from 1876. Then Grant and his party stopped at nothing, but were guilty of outrages, the mere sug gestion of which a short time before would have consigned anyone to prison or the mad-houso. It is therefore not at all improbable that troops will be sent to the doubtful districts of this and other States whether they are asked for or not, and that attempts at intimidation will be freely made by the Radicals. Let us not rest too secure. We are still in the midst of a revolution. Peace will not come finally except over the grave of the Republican party. The National Democratic Com mittee met at the Arlington House last Wednesday, Senator Barnum in the chair and the Hon. F. D. Prince, of Boston, acting as secretary. The committee was full. The members in convention were unanimous in giving a hopeful account of the prospects for the fall campaign, especially those from the South and West. Those from the North and East thought they could hold their own and possibly make some slight gains. They regard the Potter resolutions with favor.
