WEDNESDAY, MAY 9,1894.
Everybody thought last year's
cotton crop was a small one, and
yet seven million bales have been
marketed and the receipts for one
third of the year, up to Sept. 1st.
still to hear from.
The Florence Messenger nominates
Judge Hudson for governor. The
Messenger seems to think that Josh
Hudson made the Dispense to
stand still as Joshua of old made
the sun do likewise.
Port Royal grows rapidly. The new
direct route to Liverpool is attract
ing the attention of captalists and
investors in all parts of the coun
ty, and new people are flocking in
and opening up all kinds of busi
ness. The Monckseator, a freight
ship which will carry S,000 bales
of cotton to Europe is now b? mg
loaded, and the British King,
earring 12,200 bales, will arrive in
a few days and commence loading.
The Columbia State thinks that
the Supreme Court wiU decide that
we have "absolute prohibition'' in
South Carolina, and says "we have
good reason for believing this."
We have no cause to distrust our
contemporary's judgment or source
of information ; he is near the
fountain head. But how the court
can get over this snag, as embodied
in its decision anent the dispensary
law we cannot understand:
"Before, therefore, the sale of in
toxicating liquors can be declared
unlawful there must be some valid
statute declaring it to be so, and
we must say that we have been un
able to find any buch statute on the
statute books of this State."
Now there has been no legisla
tion since this utterance of the
Supreme Ccurt, and if no statute
making the "sale of intoxicating
liquor unlawful" could be found
when that deliverance was made
there can be none now.
Delegates from nearly all the
Democratic clubs in the county
met in the court-house on Monday
- morning of this week, and after a
full discussion of the whole mat
ter it was determined, (inasmuch
as there was a conflict between the
State and county constitution as
to the time for holding the conven
tion,) to rescind the action of the
county executive committee and
declare this the May Convention
to be non comatibus in stcampo.
This was probably the beet solu
tion of a problem which had be
gun to rattle us all, Conservatives
and Reformers, ramrackers and
pluttercrats alike. Now all is
" peaceful and serene.
This action, however, left the
assembly with nothing on their
hands to do, and, to use the lan
guage of one of the delegates, "we
resolved ourselves into an experi
ence meeting with J. M. Gaines as
chairman." By this time a good
many had left. Enough remained,
however, to do a good deal of good
speaking, which lack of space pre
vents our publishing. The follow
ing resolutions were introduced by
Hon. J. B. Suddath, and ably sec
onded by J. Wm. Thurmond, Esq.,
and adopted by the meeting :
- WHEREAS certain defeated and
dissatisfied persons are calling up
on the people to organize so-called
Democratic clubs to be known as
Cleveland Democrats ; and, where
as, we believe the purpose of the
said defeated persons is to weaken,
if not to destroy the organized
Democracy of this State; there
fore, be it
Resolved, That we the Democ
racy of Edgefield county in mass
meeting assembled renew our
pledges and affirm our adhesion to
the Red Shirt Democracy of 1876,
believing as we do in the same
principles that we did then, viz.:
a straightout white man's govern
ment of the people, by the people,
and for the people.
The following, introduced by P.
B. Mayson, Esq., were adopted :
Resolved, That we the people of
Edgefield County in mass meeting
assembled do hereby renew al
legiance to the Reform Movement
and heartily endo. 3e the p : ? it
administration. That we emphatic
cally coudeL n the efforts of a cer
tain minority to bring our present
administration and laws into dis
repute and failure.
That we heartily commend the
action of the Edgefield Militia in
their prompt response to the call
of the Chief Executive to uphold
the laws of the state.
That we condemn the un soldierly
action of those companies that re
fused to respond to the call of the
Governor to uphold the law and
That wc pledge to Gov. B. R.
Tiliman our support for the U. S,
That since Hon. W. H.Timmer
naan declines to become a candidate
for Governor, we being anxious tc
eee him serving the people, know
ing his fidelity and fitness, name
him as our choice for his present
position of Lieu tenant-Governor.
That we endorse the Hon. John
G. Evans for the position of Gov
That we endorse the Dispensary
lawas the best solution of the
OUR POLITICAL CHART.
