Tt is a matter of encouragement to
see that the people of OrniigeWrg
have taken the initiatory steps in the
matter of a cotton factory. A con
eiderabld amount in money ami cotton
"was subscribed at the last meeting of
the Agricultural Society for the pur
pose! owl the following Committee
?appointed to carry the enterprise
Harpin Higgs, T II Zimmerman,
"NV P Hadlcy, James Stokes, \V A
Mackay, )>, J C Hotmail, lion. M ,J
Keller, Judo Robinson, W W Culler
?and W T Mullet*.
It is likely that the next step will
he the f illing of a meeting of the
people "to consummate arrangements.
At this meeting every citizen, outside
of his own pecuniary interest, who
cares-tbv tho welfare of Oraugoburg,
ought to be present. We especially
expect the men who control the
capital of Oraugoburg to come out.
Tt don't do to say that tho people ol
'Orangeburg are too poor. This is
tho way to make them rich. Besides,
in the days of our "greatest poverty,
during Radical ascendency, the peo
ple oi Oiangeburg had $80,000
deposited in the Savings Hank. Now
it is evident that we are worth three
(<imcs as much at this time. If we
laid a.-ide 880,0 jO Ubco,. we can
easily lay aside 8250,000 now. How
easy then will it be for us to invest
$25,000 in a cotton factory which is
certain to pay from 'JO to 30 per cent
on the investine.it.
Wo expect all to co-operate in this
There is no surer way of building
up the South than by factories. As
soon as thoy arc scattered over the
laud the South will begin to blossom
with prosperity. This is iio idle
boast, but the .experience.;.of every
country that has added ur.iuu Ijioi uro s
to agriculture. Every consideration-*
of interest and patriotism should
infuse life into this euierpriso.
A III under and a Wrong.
We heartily endorse the editorial
of the Augusta Chronicle aadtCori*'tiiu
tionalist in another column,'headed
4 A Mistake.'* We think the Demo
cratic party made an egregious blun
?der in being decoyed by Republi
cans into killing Mr. Tilden. The
greatest wrong over perpetrated inn
so-called frco government was the
fraudulent scaling of Mr. Hayes in
the Presidential chair, and had this
wrong been kept before the people,
and the victim of it been upheld, the
Republican patty would have receiv
ed its severest blow. There would
have been no heller issue on which to
enter into the coming campaign, with
the same ticket, than the "?/real
ream/.'' It should have been the key
noto of the campaign. We have
foolishly burn', tho bridge which car
ricd us safely across the stream. 'Pi 1 ?
den was the first Democrat elected
President since James Buchanan, and
yet we have falsely abused him That
he did not take his seat, was id fault
of Iiis, but of the Democratic Sena
tors who consented to the iniquitous
"Electoral Commission."
The Lynching.
Lynch law is always dangerous,and
when it is tco indiscrimiiiatelyjapprov -
cd may h ad to great wrongs. Put
there arc crimes w hich .-com to ho t< o
heinous Io await the slow processes of
the Courts, with the chances of escape
through a false, sense of pily, or
through the technicalities at which
lawyers leap. The gratification ol
brutal lust upon innocent victims
comes under this class, and as such
tli3 action of the citizens of Georges
Station in their summary dealing with
the villain Kinder will not be con
demned. The perpetrators of such
deeds miifrt h': taught, that they can
not commit them with safety?
The National Democratic Conven
tion tncete at Cincinnati in June
Cnn Bayard Wf.n ?
\Vc fco! no hesitancy in saying thai
I he speech inaiic by Mr. Bayard dur
ing tliu war in 18G1, advocating
peace, and expressing a belief in tho
practicability of two co-o.piul Con
fedcracies living side by hide in per
fect Imrmony ^ and--favoriii)^
mediate recognition of the Southern*
Confedeiacy;will bo fatally damagiug
to Ids availability as a PrcsideatiALj
candidate at the North.
It will bo remembered that in 18G?
Gen. Geq^TB.,jMciClelUin was,.put up j
us (bo peace'candidate,)u opposition
to Abraham, Lincoln, and although
the horrors of a war, tho results.of j
which were yoi. doubtfu', were-griev
ously opprosing the masses, and tho
desiro for peace was stroug and
general, McClellan was badly beaten.
Now that the war party has won,
and IhcrJ is no motive of self interest
to influence, as in 'G4, is it likely that
a candidate who favored the losing
side, and who was willing that the
Union should be dissolved, will carry
a NortJhcru State ?
To look at the matter calmly and
practically, in view of the sectional
spirit of the North which will never
die out, and the efforts which will be
made by the bloody-shirt stalwarts to
intensify this sectionalism for partisan
purpose?, we do not think that a can
didate wlro espoused this unpopular
and losing cause, however great his
honesty and ability, will be likely to
draw votes from among a people who,
despite their boasted enlightenment,
exhibit far less libera'ity of senti
ment and feeling than the conquered
If Mr. Bayard is the Democratic
candidate, Blnine and the rest of the
& Uli warts would w ml no better text
for the Northern ear than the little
paragraph from Mr. Bayard's I>over
speech : "Why then may not two
American Confederacies exist side by
side without conflict?" This will be
construed as championing the cause
of tho Southern Confederacy, and the
author will be put in the same catc
gory with Jefferson Ha via.
We honor Mr. Bayard, and would
delight to see him above all others in
the Presidential chair. We honor
him for his honesty, his consistency
and bis independence. His Dover
speech is entirely in harmony with
his humanity and bis nubility of
charaettr. We endorse every word

U'is very certain the South cannot
elect a President alone. Two or three
Northern States are wanted. The
than who can carry these States is
the man for the Democrats to nomi
We have often said that the South
.co.ught to have very little to do with
Preciden:-making. Denve this to the
North and it will be better for us.
The goid ol the masses of the South
is far more important to them than
the elevation of favorites to office.
Tho Democratic nominee should
be as little hampered as possible
with the idea of sectionalism, aud in
order that it may be destroyed, it
would be best for the South to do
little talking, but stalwart voting.
We have very little choice as to the
particular candidate for President.
All we want is the success of the
Demon acy,
liken for Governor.
We see the name of D Wyatt
Aiken suggested in some of our ex
changes for Governor, and we must
say that we like th : nomination. We
like it because he is a practical far
mer und is identified with tho bust
interest of the people. Wo like it
because he is a practical and onorgot
ie man. Whatever ha tin lertVtes
he does thoroughly. As Congress
man he has been assiduous in his
duties, devoting himself unreservedly
and untiringly in the intercut of his
constituents, as his roc >rd sho t<. Us
record as a granger is also another
evidence of his working character
islics. His zeal in this cause knows
no bounds. We like him also bocau.o
ho thinks for himself and does not
,vail to take snulf until other people
succ'.e. He is a man of sol id i I y and
intellig ?nee, aud wo believe would
make a Governor for the people
W. P. Kellog is blackmailing Sen
ator Hill for trying to unseat him.
He has sued Mr. Hill for seducing
Jessie Raymond, of Atlanta, in 1877.
The Two-ihtrds Rule.
Ever since 18;5? tho rule has boon
observed to make the vote of two
thirds of the delegates present iu a
Democratic Convention necessary for
the choice of a nominee for^President.
It is now proposed by the National
Democratic Executive Committeo to
""chhhgc this rule so that a majority dan
nominate. It is urged that by the
tworthirdrf fruMfiiA J^r^gatef 6it?in
gel fired out, aud thus from indidcrr
.euc,o, a.^negat^vc^cr^rdi'mry candi
date runs in. Tho small fry it is said
depend ,on this-. H'e think however
that tho majority rule is'opcn to a
greater danger. Under its workings
a hasty, and precipitate nomination
may.be mado.
Werathor prefer tho time-honored
custom. If it is more tiresome it is
less precipitate and gives ample room
for consultation and conciliation, if
necessary. The idea that tho majority
rule would give the South mure pow
cr, and cuablc her to dictate the can
didate, we think has little weight,
because wo think that, even if the
South had this power, she ought not
to use it. Such dictation would give
tho candidate a scctioual character,
which would weaken him materially.

The Hope of the South.
The hope of the South consists in
the building up of its material inte
rests. As longa? we devoto our
selves altogether to agriculture wo
will be poor. We must combine '
manufacture with agriculture if wo
wish to prosper. To make our cotton
and then pay to the North all its
proceeds for clothing ami wares is
suicidal. We must put up our fac
tories i and Railroads; and immigrants
will be sure to follow. We have a
better soil and a better c'.im.ilc than
the North, and why are wo not us
prosperous. It is because all our
money goes there to buy manufac
ture 1 articles ? When we realize this
truth the South will omen snco to
grow and get as rich aud prosperous
as any section ol the Union.

was the cause of the act. He was a

Wouldn't it be a pretty mess of Halt
if the Republicans were to nominate
little Alex Stephen? for Vice-Presi
dent with Grant for President? And
it is by no means impossible. They
are shrewd and mean enough to do
it. Alieady they are hurrahing for
him in Congress, because Alex is a
kind of unruly boy,and won't obey

The enormous advance in the price
of printing paper has caused an effort

The publishers at Chicago have made
a strong appeal for the removal of the
