IKun ded nbov,
We take it that a ' g . d Demecra'." is
one that will abide by the action of the
party in convention assembled, and ret
pitt his individual opinion against the
representative men of his party. If the
proper representatives of the party de-
eide upon a line of action in local mat-
ters that in no way affect the funda
mental principles of the party, a guod
Democrat will yield his individual opin
ions and po with his party. It is the
same in State and National politics.
Whatever the .State convention, or Na
tional convention, decides as beet for
the party, the "good. Democrat" will
fall in line and supp-ri it. n" mutter
what his individual ''pinion.
Now this "pood Democrat" ought to
know something of the condition of the
political parties in this county. He
ought to know that the Republicans
have an evern helming majority, and if
he has kept posted he ought to know
that there are internal dissensions in
this, party, brought about, it is charged,
by bribing and corrupting delegates to
their conventions, and that these dis
sensions, have grown into two distinct
factions. One of these factions, the
conservative element, we believe, oilers
to unite with the Democrat in electing
members of the General Assembly and
countv officers. The case stands thus:
party say to the Democrats, "we intend
to rule this countv: we will nominate
just such men as we want for county
officers and send Green and Hussev to
the General Assembly and we don't
care whether you like it or not: in fact,
the more you dislike our ticket, the
harder we will work to elect it: we
hate Democrats and hate everything
that they like. "
The conservative element of the Ke-
publican party say to the Democrats:
We havu a ''rule or ruin" element in
our party : we can not hold a convention
w"o tnem witnout a row. mey win not
consent to a fair convention, but bribe
cauuiuateo ror ice cenerai issemuiy
and we will meet in mass convention
and endorse the ticket. "
J.-j . t , li
Now, we suppose this "good Demo
crat,"" being a good deal like tho radical
element of the Republican party, would
have rejected and treated such a pr po
sition with contempt. He would have
replied, "No, give us all or we will

and after fully discussing the matter
the names of C. C. Clark for the enate,

But it seems that this particular
Democrat is solicitous about Mr. Clark 's
position on county g overnment. If so.
was it not just as easy to find Mr. Clark s
office a that of the I'r-vc Tt"n7 Bn.ti't.7
We have not interviewed Mr. Clark on
this matter, but we know the fact that
his fitness for the positi n was thorough-
ly discussed by the
anj that Mr
Jair.es A. Bryan.
, . , , . , ,
chairman of the board o. county cona-
missioners, and a man whose position
on county government is well known in
this county, warmlv advocated Mr.
Clark as the proper man to put upon
this ticket for the Senate.
Now tho way for this I'emocrat to
vote the coalition ticket, is to set: that
his name is on the registration book and
go to the polls on the 1st Tuesday in

The shock of the earthquake ua.- felt
first at Charleston on Friday. August
iTth. It was slight in that city and
other points, but at Summerville, the '
following from the -Vices and Courier
of the next day gives thia information. .
The reader will notice that this was on '
Friday preceding the fearful shock of
the Tuesday night following:
"It was about half past v o'clock in .
the merning. the weather being fair i
and with not the slightest indication of j
what was in a few minutes about to
transpire. All of a sudden aDd without !
the slightest premonition wf disturbance
or danger, the shock of an earthquake :
was distinctly felt. It produced, of
course, the utmost consternation, as it '
lasted for several seconds. People left '
their houses and ran out into the streets I
to avoid the imminent crash of a falling j
house or a roof tumbling in on the in- j
mates. lhe 6hock was particularly
severe down by the depot, where, in
some of the stores, Lowery's, Emanuel's
and others, the articles were shaken
from the shelves of the store to the floor.
The shock allected a very large terri
tory, inasmuch as every house within
the town was shaksn, and reports have
been received, covering a radius of at
least four milea from Summerville
which Btate that the shock was every
where felt within that limit.
"Some of the people from Summer
ville who talked on the subject yester
day, said that a rumbling sound was
first heard in a northeasterly direction
from the town, and that that sound was
was followed by an explosion resem
bling that of cannon at a distance. From
this circumstance it is said by some of
the people of the town that the shaking
up of the houses was caused by the ex
plosion of a meteor in the neighborhood
of the town. This, however, would
have been accompanied momentarily
by a sudden blaze of light which, ac
uording to trustworthy authorities, did
not take place. The prevailing opinion
is that yesterday's disturbance was a
That the English goyernment is one
of the shrewdest on the globe there is
no mistake. Michael Davitt. who has
been in the United States about two
months lecturing on the home rule
question in the interest of Ireland, has
discovered that he has been followed by
a short-hand reporter in the pay of the
British Government. All of his speeches
and some of his private conversation
were taken down in full by the inde
fatigable agent. The fact has just
leaked out. Of all his utterances so
go far, Mr. Davitt has the credit of hay
ing been very temperate, and unless the
speeches are misrepresented, the Eng
lish authorities will find it dilncult to
make any charges against him.

Long before the usual Office
hours he was hard at work sys
tematizing and arranging relief
measures and ascertaining on his own
account the extent of the calamity.
One of the first steps was to constitute
as a relief committee a joint committee
of the chamber of commerce, the mer
chants' exchange and the cotton ex
change, appointed by the city council.
The several exchanges are represented
on the committee, and mayor Courte
