SPCIAL cONVENTIoN TO B

The call from "Headquarters of the
Union Republican party of South

mittee;" published last Wednesday,
puts the Democratic party on notice
hat Repablicans are trying to make
i show' of fight. The advertisement
ipportioning representation from the
:ounties and congressional districts
is interesting. The call is signed by
Joseph Tolbert, chairman, and H. H.
Mobley, secretary. The reorganized
party plainly is to be a Tolbert ma
:hine. Tolbert's "tried and true" Re
publicanism has been vouched for by
a "Jeffersonian Democrat." ,
Of special, not to say ominous,

We might have met in May, when the
democrats were reorganizing, and

While the Democratic campaign has

convention will meet Tuesday, Sep
tenber 19. That will be one week
after the second Democratic primary.

men of higher standing in the state
are Republicans. None of them, how
ever, has a testimonial from Demo
crats. Tolbert's orders are said to be
that his party must poll 2,500 to the
congressional district. Indorsement
of independent Democratic candidates
might make it easy.
This Tolbert JRepublican party is
not "lily white". Its convention will
contain many negroes. Observe,
though, that the Republicans stick
to the :onvention plan. They will
hold no primary. Their convention
will n t be organized on the basis of
Demo.ratic state conventions. A
Demcratic state convention contains
two county delegates for each repre
sentative and senator in the General
Assembly, 340 members. Tolbert's
convention will have one delegate for
each member of the lower house of
the General Assembly and none for
senator. So it will be a small body,
having 124 members.
The result of this plan will be that
delegates from the populous counties
of the Up-country will nearly have a
majority. Tolbert has heard that a
few heads of corporations in the Up
country are protectionists, Republi
cans at heart. Twelve counties in the
Piedmont will have 42 delegates or
more than one-third of the whole
number. They will be Tolbert men,
"tried and true". The 12 counties do
not include Charleston and Richland,
doubtless safely under the control of
Tolbert's federal office-holders, and
they will have 13 delegates. Fourteen
counties of the 46 would give Tol

there would be no danger to the

CALLED FOR THE
ING FOR ROAD BOND ISSUE
Only a small number responded to
the call of Mr. R. A. Meares for a
meeting Monday in the interests of
good roads. Although the number
was small, it was fairly representa
tive of the different parts of the
county. The spirit of the meeting
seemed to be not superfiicial enthus
iasm, but determination' to have the
rcads without waiting or quibbling
over the manner of getting them.
For the information and refreshing
of memory of those present, Mr.
Meares stated what had transpired at
the preceding meeting and took up
briefly the points and differences
brought out then; stating that this
meeting should find some way of har
monizing the several details argued
before. Practically every phase was
again discussed. After a general and
informal discussion 'the following res
olution was intrdouced by Mr. Mc
Meekin, which sets aside all previous
action and purposes to remove any
objections to the bond issue which
were raised formerly:
"Resolved: That the county chair
man call a convention under the rules
of the party; said conyention to map
out roads to be worked, name com
mittees to be appointed, and submit
same to the voters in the general
election; the amount of bonds to be
issued to be not less than $500,000.
Said convention to be called on some
suitable date hereafter to be design
ated by the county chairman."
