f Nominees and a Regular Love Feast All
^ Columbia, S C.,Aag.lG.?The State
Reform nominating convention was the
great event of interest in South Carolina
yesterday. It was all Evans from
jump to finish. John Gary Evans was
nominated for Governor by an overwhelming
vote, and Dr. Timmerman
was declared the nominee for Lieutenant-Governor
by acclamation, but no
State ticket was put up,though it came
dangerously near winning.
Altogether, the convention was one
of the largest bodies that ever gathered
In Columbia, and more business was
done in the same length of time than
I at any of the conventions of recent
L jearsl While most of the talkers were
wan thou mannered to make things
FHT uo n uivu^vuv^ ?..W..WQ?exceedingly
lively and interesting. It
was 12.13 o'clock when Chairman Sligh
L called the convention to order, and
without any preliminary talk called
for nominations for temporary chairman
of the convention.
Mr. 0. C. J onion nominated Mr. W.
Glbbes Whalev, of Charleston. The
k nomination was received with cheers
and applause. It was heartilv seconded,
and Mr. Whaley was unanimously
elected, amid vociferous applause. Mr.
R. L. Gnnter of Aiken was then nominated
by Mr. Jordan for temporary
secretary, and was unanimously elected.
The credentials of the delegations
were then called for, and the several
chairmen handed them up. On motion
w. . of Mr. Sligh, Col. F. M. Mixson of Columbia,
was made assistant secretary.
The roll was then made up and the
convention was ready for business. A
L, motion was made to make the temporary
organization permanent, which
caused considerable confusion. There
* * v Ji?nfi on
WBk was eviaenuy muea m?au3iavuuu
' with Mr. Whalev on account of his
Bain voice. Mr. Whaley stated that he
RK. could not preside over the convention
on account of Ids physical condition.
Mr. M. R. Cooper, of Colleton, was then
nominated. He was forthwith elected.
On taking the chair he thanked the
convention for the honor conferred on
him on behalf of the people of Colle!ton,
the originators, of the Colleton
idea,which they were here to carry out.
The temporary secretaries were then
elected permanent secretaries.
Mr. W. A. James, of Sumter, offered
the following resolution:
Resolved, That the chairman of the
? State Reform faction committee be instructed
to request the Democratic
State central committee to place an
extra box at each polling place in the
Democratic primary election to be held
on August 28th inst, for the purpose
of getting before the public a fair and
positive expression of opinion from the
white voters of the State on the dispensary
law. In said bos. voters who
favor tha-dispensary plan as a solution
of the whiskey problem to vote "yes,"
.and those who oppose the same to vote
l ^ "no." After considerable debate tha
resolution was tabled.
^ Mr. W. D. Evans, the president of
W" the State Farmers7 Alliance,men peered
the Ocala platform with a few alterations,
as the platform and principles
governing this convention and the
Reform party. The platform was adopted
Mr. Colcock, of Charleston, moved
that the convention proceed to the
work which it w?s called to do?to the
nomination of a candidate ior Gover>
nor and Lieutenant-Governor.
Prof. Marchant started a first rate
rampus when he offered as a substitute
for Mr. Colcock's motion, a resolu
tion "that the convention nominate
' a fnli State ticker, in block, by ballot,
_ includtDg three candidates tor railf
road commissioners." Some one
' promptly moved to table this.
Mr. Colcock refused to accept the
Mr. McCravy, of Laurens,stated that
bis delegation bad come here nninstructed
and be would l;k^ to Na- this
matter of nominations fully discussed.
Mr. II. J. Donaldson saia his delegation
came here instructed to make
nominations for Governor and Lieu
tenant-Governor, that done,let the wisdom
of the bcdy decide as to anything
Mr. Cunningham moved to lay the
j substitute on the table.
At this juncture things began to get
very lively. (Japr. bteaaman, 01 ine
Aiken delegation, rose and exclaimed
r rather dramatically: "Before you go
k further, I would like to inform you
L. that this man, who offered this resolution
(Prof. Marchant) has done so
against the instinctions given him by
the aonvention which Jsent him here."
fc-v (Loud cheering.) Then there was
W much excitement.
T Trof. Marchant bounced up out of
his chair, lie looked a little wild and
in the most dramatic manner, waving
his arms, he exclaimed: "1 deny it. 1
deny it He has made an assault upon
me. I have acted for the people of
Aiken according to the instructions

was quite an uproar and in the midst
. of it the chairman put the motion to
I . lay Prof. Marcbant's substitute on the
table, Capt. Steadman all the while apJS
pealioe to the convention to be allowcd
to reply to l'rof. March ant. The
substitute was tabled.
IflQk Senator \V. I). Evars then asktd the
IHBP secretary to read just at this juncture
some resolutions, which were adopted
m by the Marlboro county convention by
by a vote of 57 to 11. The resolutions
deemed it inexpedient to make any
nominations at all at the convention,
V and instructed the delegation to carry
out the convention's ideas. This was
received by the convention as informaHr
tion. Marion and Florence counties
endorsed the Marlboro resolution.
R| Mr. Brice entered lor the Fairfield
Ml delegation a protest against making
any nominations whatever. lie said
two-thirds of the Reformers in his
county were opposed to it.
^ a dolnt of order was raised. Mr.
Colcock'3 motion was adopted in the
& confusion and nominations were called
Hl Mr. Garris, in order to get to work,
said he would be brief and simply
flgft place before the convention the name
B of the Hon. John Gary Evans, of Aiken
;or Governor. (Cheers.)
S i-r. Appelt said it was not right to
HA stirie expressions from delegates. Mr.
mm Brice, of Fairfield, had never yielded
MP the floor and he should be allowed to
n . proceed. Mr. lirice answered some
B question and said that only one-third
of the Reform voters in his county had
participated in tne primary ana mey
B wanted no nominations. It was time
B to pause and think. They were tired
9 tm of iiissention. There was danger ahead
L^Kthe lleform movement. Let us be
Kted. Time was called on him and
K Duncan got the floor. The point
H Braised that, no vote had been taken
Be. Colcock's motion. The chair^ j^Taled
that the motion had already
- been carried. Mr. Duncan explained
WF*" that the very call for the convention
outlined what it was to do.
Mr. O. C. Jordan, of Aiken, said he
rlid not understand all this. All Knew
what the convention had b^en called
to do. Ccming from Aifcen as he did
he, however wanted the matter thoroughly,
openly, fairly and honestly discussed.
lie spoke in behalf of trie candidate
from Ms county. It had been
charged that there was a disposition
to gag by certain men on the lloor.
Xow, it seemed to him, this was the
nlir?p tn xneafe of anv ODUOSiliOu. If
those delegates instructed to oppose
nominations did not present their protests
tcey would be recreant to their
Mr. Hrice replying to the allu3ioa to
"gagging,"called Mr. Jordan's attention
to the fact that the Falrlield delegation
was tor Evans. ;
The chairman again rultd that the
Colcock motion had been adopted. Mr.
Colcock pleaded for it to be put again I
to allay all feeling. Mr. Pettlgru called !
for the ayes and noes. The chairman 1
stated that the record showed that he '
was right but that he svould put the :
motion again. Tne chairman of each ;
delegation cast the vote for his county. :
The motion was then adopted by a
vote of 282 to 38, the counties of Fairfield,
Ilorry, Marlboro and Florence
voting in tbe negative.
THE NOMINATIONS MADE. \
Nominations were then called for for i
Governor and Mr. 0. G. Jordo:a rose, j
He said for the high aud exalted post
tion of Governor of South Carolina, he '
desires to place before the convention (
the name of one who was a ma:3, a noble
man, a perfect man, a man in every
sense, Mr. Jordan said: "In Cokes- J
bury, in the county of Abbeville, on ,
October 15, 1863, while the war was
raging, there was born a black-eyed ,
boy?of the union of Gen. X. G. Evans, |
a gallant soldier, and Ann Victoria Gary.
This boy grew up to become the
Hon. John Gary Evans. He received j
bis early training at the old Cokesbary (
conference school. When he grew up
he went in 1880 to Union College at j
Schenectady, in the State of Xew York.
He was elected in his junior year presi- j
dent of his class, a marked compliment |
for it was the first time a Southern boy
had been thus honored. Tne youog ;
man was a great favorite of his uncle, j
Gen. M. \V. Gary. After returning
from college he went into the law oflice
of Gen. W. T. Gary in Augusta, Ga.
He remained there reading law until |
iSRfi whpn he returned to his State to
cast his lot among bis own people at ,
Aiken. In a short time th& people
called upon him and sent him to the
Legislature to represent then in 1888. (
Then in 1890, when the Reform move- (
ment was inaugurated, he cast his lot ,
with it, and he has stood by it as grandly
and honestly as any man in South
Carolina. In 1892 the people raised ;
him higher and sent him to the Senate.
He ha3 served there with signal ability
for the pass two years. Now we call i
upon you to raise him higher and put .
him in as Governor of this noble old
State. The nephew of Martin Wither
spoon Gary, he inherits all of his many ,
noble traits." (Prolonged cheering) ,
Six or seven counties seconded Evans'
Senator \V. D. Evans then took the .
floor. He said: "Upon an occasion J
like this, while we are all here as true ,
and tried Reformers, I am not one of
those who have anything within ma
but a feeling of pride at anything the j
Reformers do when they ac:. Yet, in
obedience to the small minority vote
that has been cast. I wish to put in ,
nomination the name of a man just
as true as the man who will be Governor.
(Cheers.) I wili not go into past <
records, but simply present the name
of the Hon. W. H. Ellerbe of Marion,
as a candidate for the nomination of j
Governor of South Carolina. (Applause) ,
The nomination was seconded by Mr
Cunningham and the Marior. Colleton
and Hampton delegations.
Mr. E. X. Iledfearn of Chesterfield
then presented the name of the Hon.
James E. Tindal of Clarendon. Mr.
Tindal's nomination was seconded by
The usual motion that nominations
close was passed and the convention
proceeded to vote. As th9 name of
each county was called the chairman of
the delegation announced the vote of
his county. The vote for the candidates
stood as follows:
For Evans?Abbeville, 12; A:^eo, 8;
AndersoD, 12; Barnwell, 12; Beaufort,

For Tindal?Chesterfield, 6; Clarendon,

On motion the nomination of John
Gary Evans was made unanimous by a
rising vote. There waa vociferous
cheering all the while.
On behalf of Marlboro, Mr. W. D.
Evans made the motion, which was
seconded by Mr. Kedfearn for Clarendon
Mr. Jordan moved that a committee
of three be appointed to wait on Mr.
.&vans and invite him to 'the hall, after
notifying him of his nomination.
Mr. Appelt moved that the committee
be selected from the counties which
voted against Mr. Evans. (Cheers and
Mr W n TC trans hprft stated that It
would be best to proceed with the nomination
of a Lieutenant Governor lirst.
He nominated Dr. W. H. Timmerraan
?who received the nomination for
Lieutenant Governor by acclamation.
Mr. Gantt moved that Messrs. Eller
be and Tindal be also waited upon aud
invited to sears on the tl>or of the convention.
A committee of Ova was then appointed
to wait on Mr. Evans and Dr.
Ximmerman, notify them of their nomnatioD,
and escort them to the hall; and
invite Messrs. Tindal und Ellerbe to
seats on the lloor. The committee
consisted of J. C. Ivlugb, D. J. liradham,J.
C. Ellerbe, O. C. Jordan and
W- D. Evans.
OUR NEXT GOVERNOR.
After a while the committee returned
escorting J no. Gary Evans and Dr.
Timmerman to the stand. Evans came
in on the arms of Mr. Ivlugh and Mr.
Jordan. He seemed to be pretty well
satisfied. As soon as order could be
obtained, the chairman said: "it is
now ray pleasure, gentlemen ot the
convention, to introduce the future
Governor of South Carolina." (Prolonged
Air. Evans stepped up to the front
cleared his tnroat and began to speak,
lie was mcst attentively listened to
ana at times was interrupted by vociferous
applause and cries of "Bravo!"
Mr. Evans was so enthushed, that before
he finished the perspiration rolled
from his brow in huge drops. He
spoke as follows:
Gentlemen of the Convention and Fellow
The feelings of the human heart cannot
be expressed by word of mouth.
As sweet music is the language of the
soul so is the sympathetic glance of
the eye, the hearty shake of the hand
and the brotherly embrace, and true
language of the heart. To say that I
thank you sesms cold and is but a
poor expression of the heart that goes
out to each and every one of you. An y
, words I might say to you intended to
represent my thanks to this boly would
be inadequate. There Is gentlemen, a
trite saying that the heart speaks most
when the lips move not, and I am sure
that is recognized by every member
here when 1 attempt to t xoress ray apDrciation
of this nomimiiun which
meaos an election to the highest ofiiee
uMfhin vrmr pift. There Is in my tiomi
nation an expression of ihe people,
which means more than any pen can
write or any human lips confess. I represent
that element in the Inform faction
which was born during or since
the late conlli v. of arms between the
Xorth and South, that element of the
young Democracy which now must carry
the older element?our grandfathers
and fathers?upon our shoulders as
i-Eaeas did the old Aachises?a precious
burden. It has been truly said that the
hope of the State is m our young men,
bus no less true is it that the pride of
the young men is the history and the
traditions of the old men who have
made this country glorious. (Cheeks
and voices, "That's so; every word of
I stand here as a representative of
Reform and a rebuke to your enemies
who have attempted to say that the
Reform movement is to array class
against class. I stand here to defend
the principles of my father and your
Fofhoro?that-, nrinmola for which they
LQUUVAU UUMW r _
fought, bled and died, that principle
which is dear to our hearts, that prinjiple
which has been denied to us, but
which has been recognized by the lieform
movement of South Carolina?
"Equal rights to all, special privileges
so none." (Cheers.) Treviously, a man
without ? history, without war record
in South Carolina was thought to
be ineligible to office in this State.
While 1 am here as a youDg man and
I don't mean that in the seuse which
that word has been a stigma in South
Carolina, but I stand heie as a young
man who was born since the lafe coutlict,
and I have grown old ia the experience,
which has enabled you, fellow
citizens, to stand here as representatives
of pure Democracy, demanding
that the will of the majority, when
fearlessly and honestly expresssed,

to array class against class,

principles of South Carolina are
founded upon animosity and prejudice,
in my nomination, you have a contradiction
of such perversion of its principles.
The Reform movement is a
movement of the people and one of its
fundamental principles is that the majority
must govern, giving a due respect
to the minority when honesilv
Now, gentlemen of the convention, I
take it that it will be improper for me
at this time to outline to you the policy
which shall govern me in the future;
I take it that the people of South
Carolina have spoken through you to
the world, and i take it that the people
of South Carolina through their
endorsement of me have endorsed the
administration which has preceded me.
Our past administration has been conTm>h

that should satisfy the most hypercritical,
and has set the pace for our sister
State of the South and West, which
must finally result in the disenthrallment
of our people from the oppression
from the money power ot the
East I shall .endeavor in 'my administration
to brim? about this consummation
so -devoutly to be wished for. I
say to you and to the world that the
Reform administration shall have but
one object, ana tnst 13 me uapymcss
and prosperity of the people. This. I
am sure, is the sentiment which has
been expressed by the Reformers and
which has resulted in my nomination.
There has been one law which has
been ; fought more strenuously than
any other in the history of our legislation?that
is the dispensary law.
The overwhelming sentiment of the
people of South Carlma is that that
law has in view the happiness of the.
whole people, and the voice of the people
must be carried out, let the consequences
bs what they may. The
people have spoken by their representatives,
and 97 per ceat. of the honest
white men of South Carolina have
spoken in favor of it GentlemeD, that
voice shall bs heeded by me; the enforcement
of that law shall be my
prime object, and I believe I have behind
uie toe honest men, the virtuous
women, and even the little children of
South Carolina. (Cheers.)
I shall not attempt to outline my policy?that
will be given later, when I
shall have the pleasure of addressing
the people of South Carolina as a unit.

mony are the great objects to be desired
and to be obtained by all civilized
governments, yet you must recognize
that in South Carolina, where
there has been but one party, such an
idea is an ideal conception. " There can
be no such thing as unity in the midst
of political dissensions. Our principle
is that the majority of the white citizens
must rule and the minoritv must
submit. Gentlemen that is the only
cause of dissension today in the politics
of South Carolina.
What are the principles of Reform?
I shall not enter into them. You know
them too well; you know I have tried
to be the exponent of them. You kaow
I have loved those piinciples; you know
I have voted for those principles. The
only opposition in South Carolina today
to the principles of the Ilefjrm
movement is based on prejudice. No
reasonable man, especially no reasonable
while cif.z-m can object to the
principles of the lieform movement in
South Carolina, xnsy cauuuo.^atcio.;
Those principles are laid down even by
our statesman, John C. Calhoun, as the
grandest to perpetuate popular government.
and embodied in the Farmers'
Alliance, principles upon which I might
3ay, depend the success and prosperity
of the agricultural people. (Cheers.)
Can there be any objection to that?
Can there be objection to that interest
upon which we are dependent? We
are dependent upon the agricultural interests,
and must rocognizi the principle
upon which depend the life of popular
government in this Union. A
combination of the South and West
alone will save popular government in
this Union, and that will bd expressed
in iif mv indcm^nt amonnts to
anything. (Cheers.) The combination
ol' the power of wealth against the
combination of the agricultural interests
and laboring interests is today
concentrated in the East. That concentration
can only be defeated by the
solidity ani unanimity of the South
and West, expressed through their organization,
which is the mouthpiece
and which speaks for the bone and sinew
in our land. (Cheers.) And when
1 hear my countrymen oppose it 1 feel
like saying to them. "God pity them;
they know not what they do."
Now, fellow citizens, united in our
ranks, we are confronted today by opposition
which has not reason behind
it; an opposition that cannot succeed
under the laws of God nor under the
laws of man, because that opposition
is fouDded upon a Disis wuicn c&u
never succeed. Your principles must
prevail, because they are far removed
from sectional and class privileges, and

Washington, Aug. 13 ?The News
and Courier correspondent to-day had
the following interview with Senator
' What is the outcome of the State
canvass in South Carolina?"
"Do you mean to say that all political
parties are at sea V"
"That is exactly what I mean to say.
The Democratic party is divided into
two factions,the Conservative and Reform
factions The Republican party is
showing some animation and appears
to be getting ready to take advantage
of the Democratic split. The Third

So you cau see what Tillmanism has
done for the Democratic party in South
"What will the Conservatives do?"
"Saw wood and say nothing. They
are thirty-live or forty thousand strong,
and nave been disfranchised, so far as
the nomination for Governor is concerned,
by the ring in control of the
fifty thousand Reform faction. Do you
suppose that many white men will submit
"Do you say the Reform faction is
controlled by'a ring?"
"The most unscrupulous ring that
ever dominated the politics of any
country, but I am not alone authority
for tiro charge. You may remember
that my colleague, Mr Irby said in most
emphatic terms last wiuter or spring
that there was a "State House ring" in
Columbia. Reformers have, duringl&e
recent canvass, iterated that there was"
a ring in the Reform faction. Every
intelligent man in the State knows it is
true, and masses of the Reformers are
kicking volently against the ring and
Its ilagrant methods. The Reform
rtftndidatas who have been and will be
slaughtered by the ring are very mush
outraged, and 1 do not believe will
' What will be the upshot of these
"In my jugment the Conservative element
will in due time come to the
front and bring order out of chaos, and
give us relief from the confusion
an<J wrangling which the ring has
brought upon our politics. Oa the
stump and otherwise I have warned
our people of the dangers of division.
So havd Messrs Tindal, Ellerbe and
Pope, lleform candidates for Governor,
and other Reformers. The ring rulers
have met appeals with scorn and deris
on, ana the aay 01 recKomng ior mew
will come in the near future.
' YVhat about the dispensary V"
"Oh, well, the di3pensary is a huge
political machine which has borrowed
the livery of temperance and morality
to serve the ring in. It is honeycombed
with corruption, and if its management
is ever investigated and the facts disclosed
you will see a seething mass of
corruption that will astonish the people
of the country. It has been reopened
without the consent, as It ha3 been reported
without the consent, as I am informed,
of two of the three members of
the State board of control, and I have
no douot is to be run in the interest
and for the benefit of the ring candidates.

0.1 Saturday, the 9:;h instant, the Re
form clubs were to meet and elect delegates
to a County Convention. This
Convention is to meet on the 13 Dh and
send delegates to a State Reform Convention
to meet in Columbia on the
16th. The State Convention is expected
to nominate for Governor and Lieutenant
Governor. Mind you, now, the
Conservatives are to have no voice in
this business, but, as 1 have said, are
disfranchised. Then there is So be a
primary on the 28ih of August, not to
vote for Governor and SGate officers,
but to appoint delegates to a State
Convention to meet some time in September
to nominate candidete3 to be
voted for at the general election in
November. Follow this problem
through and you will see that tbe people
are cut off from giving a direct vote
for any otlicre except at the November
election. 1 have stated tne case as I
understand it, and if a more adroit
scheme could be devised to bamboozle
the people and defeat a free expression
of their wisheB I should be obliged to
have it suggested. And yet we are
told one of the cardinal features of the
Reform Mov ement was to give theprimary
for all public offices. Satan could
not have hit upon a more effectual method
to usurp tbe people and turn "them
over, bound hand and foot, to a handful
of selfish, corrupt ringsters."
' Senator, you seem to have survived

"Oh, yes; I was never in better kelter
in my life. 1 spoke in every county, at
every campaign meeting and extra
"Was there as much excitement as
represehted in the papers?"
"I do not think that there was more
excitement than usually attends a political
canvass. The accounts were
greatly exaggerated and sensational. !
With a few exceptions the meetings
were quiet and orderly?not very large
?and the people listened attentively
and respectfully Of course at some
places a few drunken fellows would
create a disturbance, but they were
generally attended to by the special constables
or committee of arrangements
and soon suppressed. Personally I
have no cause of complaint except on
three occasions, when two or three
rowdies attempted to interfere with
me. I had no trouble in thrusting
thetn aside and in proceeding with my
speech. Everywhere the committees
and the people ?7ere as Kind and hospitable
to me as they could possibly be
and appeared anxious to hear me
speak. The canvass has had a* good
effect in shaking things up and, as I
have said, I believe order will come out
ot the political chaos into which ring
rule has brought us. And I want to
say another thing: Some of the stump
speeches were as fine and instructive
a31 ever listened to?notably so with
several ot the candidates for State
oilices, whose names t will not mention
as I do not care to discriminate."

proceedings in tue Ssnale were ol a most
inlets Ling and exciting character, invol?n?as
thev did the succs3s or dtf?at
of ail tiia IdrifT work of the season; and
it was only by the casting vote of the
Vice President that the Democratic
party was saved from a bad repulse, if
not a complete overthrow.

resolution cffered on Friday by Hill,
instructing the Ssnate conferees on the
tariff bill to report whether thee Daterees
of the two IIou3es were likely to asree,
and if not to report a disagreement.
Hill modiGed his resolution by inserting
an additional clause requiring the
bill to be handed to the secretary of
the Senate for such action as the Senate
might desire to take upon It. The
significance of this clame was that it
the bill were so delivered to the Sanale
the House could noL have the
chance (which has been rumored as one
of the possibilities of t*;e opposition) to
agree to the Senate amendments, and
thus have the bill sent to the President
.without any farther action on the part
of^c-i^nate. The debate for nearly
two hours war-tilcpfted to that phase of
the question. At last action wa3 precipitated
by a motiou made by CWufeil to
proceed to the consideration of executive
That motion was i ustly regarded by

These were taken and were watched with
the most intense interest and excitsment
by Senators of all partits and by an im
mense crowd of spectators in the gal.'ir"
ies. The result was announced by the
Vice President as yeas 35. nays 35, and
he promptly cave his vote in theiafflrmalive,
thus defeating the fltll resolution
for the lime being. It has now gone to
the calendar, whence it can only be taken
by a majority vote, although a 8im;lar
resolution may be oflered at any time.

Senators. Hill and Murphy,

other Democratic Senators remained
true to their party fealty.
The most iclense interest and excitement
prevailed on the lloor and in the
galleries as the vote progressed. Whea
a pair was announced between Irby
and Wilson (Rep.) of Iowa, Hill appeared
to doubt the defection of his supposed
ally, and demanded the authority
for pairins: him with a Republican. Tn"e
authority was soon forth cominsr. Jones

A BITTER ATTACK
ON MR. W. G!B3ES WrfALEY BY EDITOR
Or the Colombia Rssiater, Who Declaies
that the lWorm Km? la Charleston is a
xnonsana ximss none inan mo v?>
Columbia.S. C., Aug 10.?The Register,
of last Tuesday, published the
following bitter attack on Mr. W.
Gibbes Whaley, of Charleston, which
was the cause of tbedlfliculty between
Editor Koester, of the Register, and
Mr. Whaley, on Wednesday in the lobby
of the Hotel Jerome. The following
is the article:
If man7 debates to the State Reform
Convention wer^ elected by methods
as rotten as those U3ed in Charleston
no true Reformer in the State will
hava any respect for that Convention
or will consider himself bound by its
action. The Register Is devoted heart
and soul to the Reform movement, but
it will be just as outspoken in condemning
rottenness and unfairness tn
that movement as in condemning tbos9
<? > tha r?nnn?1Mnn. If SUCh
UOllllC O 1U vuv -
noxious weeds are allowed to grotf unchecked
in the Reform garden they will
soon choke and kill its valuable plants.
Any Reformer who sees wrong doing
by Reformers and allows it to go unrebuked
is derelict to his duty.
We do not accuse Mr. John Giry
Evans of any participation in the affairs,
but his managers in Charleston
stole the delegation from that county
to the State Reform Convention by
methods so outrageous as to be condemned
when their blood was cool by
some who took part in them. Sheriff
Hugh Fergunson the boss riagster
of Charleston, could learn lessons in
politicjl manipulation from W. Glbbes
Whalay and his satellites. He never
dared go one-thousandth part as far in
disregard of the rights of other men as

Reformer,?. If Reform is to grow and
exDandin South Carolina, or even to
retalQ its present strengto, Informers
will have to disown and condemn such
political dishonesty as wa3 enacted in
Charleston under the name of Reform.
The machine Dart of the Charleston
Reform faci-i^ii needs most radical reformation.
It would take the combined
waters of the Ashley and Cooper,
with large assistance'frpm the Atlantic,
to wash it even approximately
Reform Movement was aimed
and designed to bring about such political
conditions as would secure fair
and square play among the white men.
With that purpose as its main object it
rapidly gained sf.rength; it that purDose
is lost sight of, it will just as rap
idly lose strength. Those men in <jnarleston
who claim to ba Reformers and
who last Saturday night acted in such
utter disregard of this most vital principle
of Reform should be pilloried before
the gaze of the people of the State
by the Reformers; if the Reform party
is ta shoulder responsibility for such
action, there are many men who will
leave tbe Reform party.
A little description of the way things
were manipulated in Charleston will
not be amiss. Some of the leading
Reformers there say that W. Gibbes
Whaley, who has represented Charleston
County on the State Reform committee,
was only self-elected to that
position: that he was never chosen by a
meeting of Charleston Reformers. Cer
hoa in nn w&v acted as he
oaimj ug uuv .. ^
should have in that position. The Reform
committeeman from each county
was expected to act as a head to the
Reformers in his county, to direct
work to organize and strengthen them.
Mr. Whaley has done absolutely nothing
in Charleston to develop the
strength of the Reformers there. In
fact it looks as if he had no desire to
strengthen the Reform faction there; it
appeared as if he preferred to keep it
weak so he could more readily get his
The State Reform committee ordered
f.hat the Reformers in the various pre
cincts should meet on the 11th instant
aud elect delegates to their County
Convention, which wo aid elect delegates
to the State Reform Convention.
In Charleston Mr. Whaley was given
the power to say whether the .Reformers
of that city should all vote in one
central club, or should vote in their
precinct clubs. A central club was
formed, but on Friday, the day before
the electioD, Mr. Whaley had not decided
whether the votes for delegates
to the County Convention should be
taken in the central club, or in the
twelve precinct clubs, and no public
notice was ever given of his decision
on that subject. The voters were left
in doubt on a material point, and their
doubt was not dispelled until after
Ringmaster Whaley had manipulated
thiogs to suit himself.
We have referred to a Central Reform
Club in Charleston. It was formed
after slight notice and never held another
meeting after that on which it
fnrmfid. which was attended by
forty or Gfty people. The secretary
elected at that meeting is a maa who
has always afliiliated with colored Republicans
The club never met again
until Saturday night, but its roll grew
in that time, according to the statements
of Its officers. These additional
names were never passed upon by the
club, but were simply put upon the roll
by Its ofllcer?, as was right and proper,
Messrs. Therreli and Thomas were put
upon the roll in this manner, and the
editor of the Register heard the secretary
of the club and Mr. Wbaley assure
Mr. Therreli, who was out of the city
when the club was formed, that he had
''"na t>n that was necessary to make
UVUV Mtk V-W- .. ? _
him a member of the club in full standin?
and that he could participate in
the meeting on Saturday night. There
was no rule passed by the club at its
only meeting that members could only
be admitted on a vote of the club,
When the cluo met on Saturday night
its second meeting, Messrs. Therrell
and Thomas, the leaders of tbe Ellerbe
and Tindal forces respctively, were admitted.
When the roll was called thej
answered to their names just as others
who had been put on the roll since the
lirst and only previous meeting. The?

' CeediDgS UD111 U was seeu wcj wcic
not Evans, wben Mr. Whaley arose and
moved that they be excluded from the
: halJ, which was done. The Mr. Whaley
who had them excluded was tbe Mr.
Whaley who assured one of them that
. he had done all that was necessary to
make him a full member. His excus*
for having them put out was that tbej
! were not members, the ciuo never nav
ing passed upoa their applications for
i membership. The club had nevei
adopted a rule that members could onlj
be admitted on a vote of the club.
Moreover the other men whose names
had been put on the club roll, like thost
| of Messrs. Therell and Thorras subse
, quent to the first meeting were not
excluded from participation in the
The chairman of the meeting wa3 th<
Reformer who Governor Tillman ap1

1 for Charleston County last fall anc
whose appointment he revoked as sooc
I as he made It. The chairman's ruling*
< were most arbitrary. He gave otbei
men Ihe floor when Mr. Thomas was
most clearly entitledto it.
The call for the meeting Saturday
night invited all those in Charleston
who were in sympathy with the objects
of the club to attend. Acting on this
invitation from one hundred "and fifty
and one hundred and seventy five as
good citizens as there are in Charleston
went to the hall where it was to be
held. The meeting was to begin at 8:30
P. M., but those who arrived as early
as 8 P. M. found the doors guarded and
nobody was admitted whose name was
not on the roll. Those who were not admitted
stood on tbe narrow piazza where
the heat was simply frightful. As their
numbers increased crowds were formed
along the sidewalk in front of the
building. The police in Charleston
never allow two or three men to stand
together on the main street?, which are
veiy small. The police told the men in
front of the hall to "move on," and
they had to "move on" or get arrested.
It is natural that they preferred to
When Mr. Whaley had run his slate
through new members were admitted,
bat it was too late.
Under Whaley'a directions the club
elected forty delegates to the Count?
Convention. Oa its roll were only 120
names, which entitled it to six delegates
to the County Convention. Whaley attempts
to justify the election o? forty
delegates by saying that the representation
was basfld upon the city Reform
club rolls. Yet the men excluded from
the meeting were all members of the
city Reform clubs, and were willing to
pledge themselves to support the nom
iaees of the State Reform Convention.
Mr. Whaley said to an outsider that
the men whom he excluded were not
there in good faith. lie was promptly
told that he was too big a coward to repeat
that slander to any one ol tho3e
men face to face.
Such tactics as those described above
are contemptible and should b8 spat
upoa by litformars. TQ3 man wao
were excluded from the Ciarlestoa
meeting will vote for whom they please
and hope that Tindal and Ellerba will
refaseto be bound by the ac:ioa of the
Convention aod will go to the Democratic
voters in the primary.?Columbia

and the next Chief Executive of

on Monday and published in the Register
yesterday left no doubt at all, and
the friends "of the Game Cock were p

showing which their favorite has made.
It was feit generally on Sunday that
Mr. Evaus would be the nominee and
the feeliag which has existed for soo^f
time between the friends of the ri vac v
leading candidates appeared to become
more bitter. There were threats of not
supporting the nominee and all the
wild talk of revolt which usually fol- , - - -0*

is fast dying away and bitterness is
ceasing. There will be no revolt from
any source and Mr. Evans will be the
A number of Columbia Conservatives
yesterday got It into their heads throush
some source that General : ^
Ellerbe would withdraw his name 'M
from before the Ileform State convention
which meets on Thursuay and
would run before the regular primary,
doing this on the ground that frauds
had been practiced against him. These
people do not know General Ellerbe.
He has got as much grit iu his make
up as any man in the world and would rather
suffer death than $o be put
3own as a traitor to any cause which*
he espouses. He will stand to the
nominee, and If necessary will stump
the State for him. ?General
EUerbe returned to the city
yesterday from his home in Marion, %
where he has been since the ending of 7
the campaign. A Register reporter
saw him and asked him for an expression
of opinion on Saturday's election.
His remarks were characteristic of the
"Well, l'ailicked," he said, "and I ,
know it, but I am not doing any kicking.
I am going to support Mr. Evans
and I advise and urge all my friends
to do so. It is this business and the duty
of every true Reformer to uphold
the action of Saturday's primaries. I
snake in every county in the State except
one, and that was becauss I could * M
not get there. I went into this business
in good faith and I am going to
stand to the rack, fodder or no fodder." -"J
All of General Ellerbe's friends?that /

have fallen into line and will fight

They will fight Dr. Pope
or any man who comes out before the ^

independent candidate. -Ifeere was a
good deal of talk yesterday about an
independent candidate, one who \FdoM1HMK??
receive the Conservative vote and the ^^
vote of the dissatisfied Reformers, if
there be any of that faction. Some of
> the warmest friends of Senator Evans
believe that there will be strong opposition
to him yet. If this should be
the case every Reformer will be needed.
One thing which has caused more
comment than all others is the extremely
light vote polled in every _
county. A great many people have
attributed it to the opposition to the
convention plan. The Alliance is
charged with having held back and
with not; narticiDatinir. the object being
' to be in a position to do as it saw fit

: Ellerbe's friends take t*ie ground that ..
the vote is a silent and strong protest
i aifainst the convention plan.
? Governor Tillman was yesterday
asked his pinion on the vote. He said
, that the people had never seemed much
; interested in the gubernatorial fi?ht
but that all interest was centered in
, the Senator! fight. They did not care .
' much who was nominated for Governor.
Another thing was that the
! farmers were taking advantage of the
1 sunshine to work their crops, rain foe
over a month hiving delayed them and
i having given the grass a big hold.
f Talking on the result of the election
i Governor Tillman said that he believed . ; |
I the Dispensary was the chief issue and
j that that was the trump card on which
t Senator Evans had been victorious. A
. newspaper reporter who was present
I suggested that the Governor hlmseii <.
had been the trump card on which Ev.
ans had been nominated. '
l The Governor answered this hint by
1 saying that he had never written aline
or 3aid a word in favor or against any
- of the candidates in the race. He again
7 repeated that he had held hands off and
! charged the Conservative newspapers
i with being responsible fer the wids>
spread opinion that he was backing
. Senator Evans. He reiterated that the
Reform movement is as solid as the
f rocks of Gibraltar.
5 The people of Marion County must
j like General Ellerbe as few men are
liked in their counties. They turned
| out overwhelmingly on Saturday and
1 gave him 1,795 votes. Tindal got 5
t and Evans 0. This was the largest
5 vote polled in any county in proportion
1 to the number of Reformers. In fact
it came near being the full Reform vote T; :
of that county. No more compHment
