IN Hi1s Prcu at Spartanburg,
General Gary nominated Hancock
and Hampton as the Domocratic
team in 1880.
THE EDOEFIELD Adlertiscr put on
its war paint last wook. The whole
edition was printed in red ink, in
honor of the exploits of the red.
shirted Democracy on the 12th of
August, 1876. It was illustrated
with a wood cut of Gen. Martin
Witherspoon Gary, the 13ald Eaglo
of Edgeliold. Radicalism can neyer
again raiso its head in Edgetiold as
long as the rod shirt flutters de
fiantly from tho mast head of the
ALEXANDEFR H. STEPnENS has been
been ro -nominated for Congress by
-the Democratic Convcntion. As
Mahomet would not go to the
knountain, the mountain yankod
itself bodily over to Mahomet.
Alex is greator than this party. In
the recent contest the Chronie-le
and constitutionalist took a manly
and creditable stand. Basing its
argument solely' on the Casey letter
in which Mr. Stepliois announced
his intention of running eyon if the
convention failed to n omi nate him,
this paper protested against a
nomination of Mr. Stephens by the
convention, as undemnocra tic, uin
manly, and contrary to all rules of
party discipline. It yields now to
the convention, as all good Demo
crats should. Had the people of
that district been as staunch as the
Ch roniele and Gon stituat ionalist,
the great commoner would have
received a nverited rebuke, and
would have been compelled to throw
himself into the arnas of the Radi
cals or else subside. No politician
should be suffered to defy a party as
Mr. Stepons has defied it, and still
live. Georgia may yet rue the clay
she truckled to Stephens.
The Democratic State ticket has
been in the *lold nearly three weeks,
and the campaign should be already
.fairly under way. Yet up to this
time no signs of life have been seen,
and the State Executive Committee
have h~ad buit one meeting-- morely
for o.rgeization. TEhis is not the
way in which the ball was set roll.
ing in 1876. Are there any reasons
for this apparont apathy? I s the
State safe? Is Radicalisnu deadi
By no gleans. The Radical party
is thoroughly reorganizing at this
very rooment. In oyery cpounty
runners are going about now
among the masses, rallying themt for
the Congressional and ILegislative
Aghts. And every day given them
to rally adds a certain amount to
the strength they arq accumnulat~ing.
The meetings are beh~l in secret, in
prder that no Democrats may be
present to diyiele ti:9 and expose
the villainiy of the leaders. It will
* be a unattor of suirprise if any large
publio meeotings of Radicals are
Aeld this fall. JBut the work is
going on silently and stealfh~ily, all
1tl~e same. In 1874 it was almost
amnosihlo for Radical leaer to
got up motings, and yet tho vote
polled for Chamberlain that year was
something prodigious. This will be
the history of the present campaign
unloss tho Democrats wako up at
onco and by a show of enthusiasm
and disciplino hack the opposition
bofore thoir scattered cohorts are
re-united. Yet we are slooping
tranquilly. Peoplo are discussing
tho success of the different candi
dates in ,he lprimary olection, with
out stopping once to consider the
big election that is to como after
ward. Since the Democracy of
Fairfield aro now united it would be
well to havo the primary elections
over as soon as the County Execu,
tivo Committoo can arrango pro
liminarics, and then to organizo a
rousing Democratic campaign over
tho whole county. Until the pri
mary has boon hold all the canvass
ing will be dono by the candidates,
and other Democrats will sit idly
down ; but the nominations having
boon mado, every Domocrat will
throw hiinsolf into the broach ill a
dotormined onset on Radicalism.
Lot us awako and got to work.
Fairfield must roll up at least a
thousand majority for the State,
Congressional and county tickots.
She will not (do it if sho 8loops.
AX VVX IAXATI ON,
Mllessrs. -Editors : In order that
I milay not bo placed inl an improper
light, I ask of you a suflicient space
inl your pper to correct ai error
which I notico in tho list issue of
TimE NEWS AND HEALD. I ain report
ed as "comimenting severely on thero
being no school at White Oak, while
Winisboro ran a good school. I
mado no such comments, never
lnltiolninr Winniisboro on1ce. I did
say that wo of vnito O.k had Vt
to roccive our first dollar of the
public fund. I have many Wiari
friends in Winnshoro, and would
not, if I could, deprive them of any
thing to which they are justiy en
titled. I hope yet to see the day
when there will be a good school
not only in Winnsboro, but in eyery
neighborhood in Fairfield county.

Vilnson to say wvhat was at.trilbuted
to him. Wo are glad to learn that
our reporter was mistaken.]
Me'cses. Edlitors :In )iis Fes
terville speech, Hion. HI. A. Gaillard,
in reliy to tihe charge that lie had
voted for the Phosphate Bill, posi
bively asserted that he had not voted
for~ thje bill, but had "fought it from
beginning to ond" (I think these are
bis own words) ; not agrecing
that he even voted for it on the
third reading ; as ho is given credit
for, in his p)ublishled speech, but
yielding that much in explanat ion
long after the close of lis doefense,
when hie was reqnested to find his
vote as recorded in the Legislativ'e
House Journal. But let's go the
record fur a settlement of this ques
tion ; on page 697, Hlouse Journal,
we find that Mr. Gaillard voted for
this bill to be .engrossed for a third
reading ; on samQn page, we find a
double-barreled motion, to reconl
sidor the above naentioned vote, angl
to lay the motion to reconsider on
the table ; the motion to table wuas
carried by the aid of Mr. Gaillard's
vote and many others, for the vote
stood, yeas 74, nays 18, this was an
exceedingly friendly motion to tihe
bill, and was made by a friend of the
measure, in order to prevent its
being reconsidered, and making its
passage secure. While the vote on
the third and final reading is not
.recorded, Mr. G. assures us that he
again agaih voted for it. Now,
Moe~ss. Editore, I do not pretend to
argue tie mots of this measure,
but simp)ly wish to correct any error
that Mr. G. or any of hearers may
have fallen into, and justify the
charges made by members of the
Fea storvillo Democratic club. Just
here I wish to ay what I have done
ini the Greenback cause, and oxplain
mny position on that question, as I
find my niotives are being miscon
strued by some of my friends. I
resigned .the presidency 9f the
Denmocratic club, bu~t not wey .mem

THER 1 PUBLIC A OADS.
.ACssrs. Editors :-I noticed ir
your last issue a gentle reminder oj
the condition of some of the road.
in our county, and especially of th
hill west of Ellison's crook, and alsc
that the comm issioners had alroad3
contracted for the improvemeilt oj
the samo. Now, Messrs. Editors,
we have just such a hill, and it is
situated on the section of road ovoi
which I ami overfoor, a part of thc
"Cowthorn" roamd, about live and v
half Miles south of Wininsboro. I
hayo workod my section of the rqad
onco, and since working it, it has
boeen reported. With the force,
tools and timo I have to work thiis
road, together with the awful con
ditioni of thi s hill, it iq inmpossilik
for moe to render it fit for traveling
over, andI if the public complain, I
Ifeel no res)onsibility. From top to
base the hill is about one hundred
yards long, and is a bed of solid
and loose rocks-the bed of the
road being washed down Rbout six
fcot. deep, just the width of a wagon,
with largo rocks projecting ol
either side, rendering it utterly
impossible for more tlall ole
vehielo to pass at a tipo, ami that
vehicle must be d"awn by a good
team. The bed of the rqad is
washed full of deep ruts, which run
in various zigzag 'courses, as the
dirt, has been wva:ihed from betwon
the nmorous large rocks which are
tirmul;y embedded in tho earth. The
ditches which of necessity, must 4e
cut on the sides of the road for
drainage, or rather for provemtin
the water from flowinig over the
road, will have to be eut, each one
hundred yards lon"', and cannot be
cut, straight without the uso of
blasting powder. owing to the imi
pledimCnts in the shape of granite
rock. Will not our efcient county
comnmissioners 'ive out a contract
on this hill and let us havo a good
ro.d ! I Was appointed overseer
on this section in tihe early part of
this year, but found the - hill in
question in such a bad contdition [
could not do it nilc good: They
have been haulii g ponderous rocks
over this hill for tle last fivo year's,
and to my certain knowledge it,
hasn'.t had a thorug h working for
six years past. Wo \You d earnestly
call the attention of the counity
coflinisioners to this hill, and
would also hint that we, of this
section. are tax'.payec ?hpto.
4 BRA~vE ou'r. -Friday aftern ooni
about 5 o'clock, wvhile a number of
colored boys were bathing in the
"wash -hole" in the Savannah River,
just above Wecst Boundary .street,
Jake Hill, about fourtegn years of
age, got beyond his depth, and,
being unable to swim, went undeor.
J-Io wvould have drowned but for
the presence of mind and bravery
of a one armed colored youth,
named Theo. Johnson, who swamn
to him as rapidly as possible and
caught him just as he was going
under the third time. Holding i~he
nearly <trowned boy with his one
arm, Johnson managed to struggle
,to shore with bini, and ihus gaved
his life. No one else made any
effort to save Hill or to help John"
son get him to the bank. Johnson
has saved four boys, one white and
three colored, from drowvning.
