Under the call of our County Chairman the various Clubs of the Democratic party in our County will meet on or about the 1st of May to reorganize the Clubs by the elect ion of oltieers, and to send delegates to the County Convention to meet iv*. Orangeburg the second Saturday in May. These Club meetings arc very important because they arc the lirst meetings in the campaigns, and much will depend upon the action taken at them. OUlcers will have to be elec ted by each Club to se ? ve for the next two years, and it is . cry necessary that active, zealous and faithful Democrats should be put in these places, as upon them the vigor of the campaign to a great extent depends. Delegates will also have to be elected to the County Convention, and, as this Convention has important mat ters to discuss and deckle, it is very proper that our best men should be sent to the front. The kind of delegates to soud up are strong-minded men who have independence of character enough to think for themselves, and don't re quire leaders to think for them aud tell tbeni bow to vote aud what to do. The best security against the evils which have been complained of is for the Clubs to turn out in full numbers, at these meetings, and for each man to realize the importance of his vote, and to think well before he casts ii Indifference wont do in this mailer. Tt is folly to soud i\p any man who happens to get up and signify Iiis willingness logo to the (Convention. There should he a regular electiou, and not a mere appointment I>y the President. There is no other way of getting a fair and free expression of the wilt of the people. Let every Democrat he out and do his duty. Thoughts on Ihc Canvass. As the campaign is about opening in Orangeburg County, as well as in the State, a few stray thoughts on the subject may not be inappropriate. There are in the County a number ofolllees to till, and. from the indica tions we already see, there will cer tainly be a greater number of candi dates than there are places. To all such we would say submit yourselves entirely to the wishes of the people. Don't press your claims by undue intluences. Rethem her it is unbecoming and unworthy of a t rue citizen to electioneer. Legitimate dis cussion of the merits of candidates is proper on the part of friends and op poucnts, In!*, the candidate himself should he silent and inactive. What ever may be the practice, i> is ivronif; The olliee should seek the man aud not the mail the olliee. Whouainan seeks an nil lee. it i.-. an evidence that be is not the proper man for it. The usual mode of inlltictieing voter-is also wrong. The voter ought to be. left to his own free choice. Ali lie wanis is to linderst and the issue, and to have lbe facts laid lie lb re him, and then he should be left to liimsvif to do as bis conscience die tales. Again t he praet ice <>i" I lie combina tion of dill'ereiit elements and the score! making up of tickets is alto ?feiher wrong. I he w ill of the people x-an never be obtained in Ibis way. All siieb practices an- unworthy of good citizens and should be condemn ed 1>\ i hem v. herover found. We do not make those remarks because we suspect tiny such practice in oiir County, bill merely as a warn ing to evil doers, arid as ? hint to good eiti/ans to be awake to the interest < if I heir homes. The National Aspect. So far as matters stund at present the indications are thai Grant will be the Republican noininee. and Bay ard the Demoeratie nominee for President. Most (if the Bepublican Slab- Conventions have sent (leant deh'.gates to :he National Convention, In spite of Grunts unpopularity with conservative Republicans, ho is the choice of the extreme Republicans, who want a man whom they suppose will have the effrontery, like Hayes, to take the ['residential chair whether he is elected lo it <>r not. On lite Democratic si?le Bayard is the favorite at present, 'there is no doubt thai he is the embodiment of honor for which he is respected nil over the United .States by friends and foes. With Graut and Bayard there is no doubt that the lines will he most dis tinctly drawn between the military and the civil phases of government, between peculation and plunder in olllce on the one side, if we may judge from Grants previous terms, and honest and economical govern ment on the other side. With such au issue and such standard bearers opposing each other there would be something to work for. Who Shall Be Governor I The contest for Gubernatorial hon ors liesat present between Gen. Gary and ton. llngood. The latter is the Conservative candidate and as such we prefer him. We regard Gen. Gary's sentiments as entir ly incon sistent with true Democracy. What effect the old song of "up*' and ''low"country will have upon the choice, however, it is hard to say. Wc cannot sec why the selection of Governor should be confined to two men. We believe that there are many other men who would fill the ollice just as acceptably and ably, and we believe too, that the harmony of the party would he advanced by hiking up .'i third man. But if i; must he either Gary or ".Iuguod, we prefer the latter, both ima man .?;;."! :>..* a Co:. iTvalive. Gen. Uarj. Ai r<hs, writing in the "Nt ?.- au 1 Courier" of Wednesday, makes a glowing and forcible presentment of the claims of Gen; M. W; Gary for I Governor, and we freely admit the correctness of the statement. (Jen. j Gary has done some excellent things, and when we look at his public re cord wc tire "almost persuaded ? but not rptite. We believe him to be honest, faithful, moderate, far sight*: 1, and deserving of our grati tude, hut his utterances are not Dem ocrat ie. No man who takes the exclusive j ground that he does should represent j tin Democracy of South Carolina, j The Work of the Pistol. The unfortunate affair in Edge field or. Monday, an accou nt of which appears; in another place, is but another illustration of the evil of carrying deadly weapons. \\ c don't believe in compromises of any kind. There must either be law or no law. If we arc to cut, slash and kill, and take our protec tion in our own hands, what is the use of nil tin? expensed!'law; but it we pretend k? be a law-abiding and law loving people and are burdened with die costly machinery of govern ment, why don't thai government see thai ih citizens are protected. This protection cannot lv given if the citizens are allowed lo carry the weapons of protection w hich should alone ho in lite hum!.-, of the govern ment. There tire few men w ho are so beastly and cowardly as to kill ntiot her with deliberate purpose. Most murders tire committed on the spur of the moment, and in the heat of passion, or under the inlltienec of whisky. In either cose, if the pistol was not present, no harm would he j done. I .. . . . . . , j hvcry instinct el humanity and justice prompts the enforcement of j the law in rufen nee to carrying con Coaled weapons. The safely of the 1 columnilily depends upon it. J it is unfortunate for Edgollold that so ninny of lliese ugly occur rence!? should Hike place v. ii bin Its borders. We fear that some evil influence is working upon the < om miinity which it will require the sharp asid decisive Condemnation of the hotter classes lo remove. Tilden Out of tlicJVay. It bus been reserved for a corres pondent of the Boston Herald to an nounce that Mr. Tilden is no longer a candidate for I he i'n aideney in the coining" election. Mr. Tilden says ! to ihe interviewer, "I do not liiiiid ' telling von frankly thai the lime has I now COIUC when I don'l care a conti ncntal penny for cither polities or politicians.*' This will be joyful news to the consolidated Southern opponents of tlie sage of Gramerey, anil we hope J that Iiis ghost will never rise again to give them uneasiness. Bloodshed in Ettgeilcltl. At the municipal election in Edge- j field on Monday a bloody riot occur red, in which Dr. Bland and Mr. Clisby were shot in the h.?weis, sup- | * . - posed mortally, and Mr. Glover was shot iu the thigh. The iillhir grew out of a dispute tis to the manage ment of the election, Clisby having coalesced with the colored people, to reduce the lax on whisky, and the straight-out Democrats putting up an opposition. It is an unfortunate ullair, and has thrown the communi ty into considerable excitement. The Ways of Politicians. The Abbeville Medium and Mr. C. II. Moise of Sunder, who is a self constituted candidate for Comptroll er General, have charger! Gen. Hu good with taking Insurance fees, which should have gone iuto the State Treasury, and putting them into his own pocket, by taking an undue advantage of a Radical law. The Columbia Register undertakes to answer the charges and set Gen. Llagood right. The Register pays that the law is on tin- statute books, ami that it is a Democratic law and that Gen. llagood has a perfect and legitimate right to the fees. Surely the ways of politicians are oast finding out. The ."Medium is for Gary. Moise is for Moise, and the Register is for llagood. We confess we don't alto gether relish this fee business, but wo suppose Gen. llagood is not un like other men. The Cotton Factory. OitAXGEBUltG, April 13lh 1.^0. Editor Orongeburg Timrs : It is lo be hoped that the silcuee which precedes the Factory meeting advertised for the second Saturday in May is a propitious omen of a .storm of material success which will then burst upon our County. With the statistics- beftfreVs, it is bard to see how any one who has any amount to invest can fail to .->eizo the opportunity of benefiting both himself and the community. It has been clearly shown by the articles published in the News and Courier, which have since been published in pamphlet form by the State Agricul tural Bureau for free dist ribution, that from Ks lo per cent, have actually been realized by the Factories al ready established in South Carolina. What better exhibit do we want V Any man whocau gel lOpcreent. on his money is doing well. So much for the matter as a successful private business investment. But again wc must leok to the benefits in a general or public way. Dr. Cooke's address before the Agri cultural Society, in which he de monstrated how the prosperity of Massachusetts, naturally poorer than Souih Carolina, was built up by its factories,should eonviecall. Here lie- the key to the future sue cess of the South, 'l'he North has prospered because every thine; i> made at home aud the money is kept there. As soou as the South realizes this truth, and establishes her own manufactories, prosperity is sure to follow, ami with public prosperity comes private prosperity also. They arc one ami inseparable. There is no County in the State that enjoys greater advantages for a Factory than Orangeburg. The victory is half won. Bet us strike while the iron is hot. Let every one come up to the meeting ill May prepared to say how many shares he will take. Wc want action not talk at this meeting. F.NTKUI'UISK. - .mil ???m.-' [For th*- Orangchur?
