WEDNESDAY, J TIA' 21, ison.
Only Au if.
IF the conservatives ol' Edge
field County will turn out on next
Tuesday and vote as they ought,
their full voting strength, they
will elect two if not three conser
vatives to the constitutional con
vention. Will they do it?
If they do not, they can never
in the future point three fingers
at anybody else and say "b3hoId
he did it,"' but rather it eau be
said of them as Nathan said unto
Offices of Regristration.
In a communication to the Co
lumbia Register recently, J. Wm.
Thurmond, Esq., of the Edgefield
bar made the point that under the
law the office of Supervisor o: Reg
istration should be open ou every
fi 1 st Monday during tho year ;9?.
This letter was shown iho Attor
ney-General and ho agreeing with
Mr. Thurmond, has issued the
following instruction to County
"The registration law provides
that in off years the books of reg
istration shall be kept open tho
first Monday in every month. In
election vea rs they shall be kept
op..n each month until the first
Monday in .July. Tho constitu
tional convention election being a
special election the books must bo
krpi open until the first Monday
of the month, preceding the elec
tion." In accordance with this the
Attorney-General has instructed
tho Supervisors of Registration to
keep their books open on the first
Monday of August.
Tho Conservatives Act.
The twenty names of Edgefield
County conservatives who signed
the resolutions hereunto appended,
represent as much genuine worth,
as much, character, andas much
patriotism as any twenty names ID
tho Slate. We hope these resolu
tions and this action will bo tho
beginning of the end ot unseemly
contention in our county and the
means of cementing our people in
one vast brotherhood.
EDGEFIELD, S. C.. /
July 20, r0?. \
A meeting was held to-day at
Eegefield Court House, at which
various conservatives were present
from all parts of the County, and
was called to order by the selection
of Capt. T. Ii. Clark as president,
- and A. S. Tompkins as Secretary.
After some discussion the body
adopted the Marlboro Resolutions,
as follows, to wit :
liesolced 1st: That it is our
judgment and we hereby recom
mend to ali Conservative Demo
crats, in the county, that we go in
to and vote for the men of our
choice, running in the primary
2nd: That we have confidence
in and rely upon the good faith of
our Reform friends, when they
have often heretofore expressed
their intention to vote formen of
boihfactions withoutregard to past
differences, hereby declaring our
acceptance of their expressions of
a desire for harmony and good
faith. The above resolutions were
signed personally by the follow
ing citizens :
T.H.Clark, Chairman; A. S.
Tompkins, Secretary; L. F.
Dom. J. JJ. Jones. C. C. Fuller, G.
M. Smith, J. JJ. Norris, J. C. Long,
W. W. Adams. Ii. II. Townes, L.
D. White, S. P. Mathews, P. B.
Call ison, R. M. Cochran, J. T. Pat
tison, M. Lott. J. H. Bouknight, M.
P. Wells, John Briggs, J. C. Shep
On motion of Mr. Callison, it
was resolved that these proceed
ings, bo printed in all three of the
cou m y papers.
Third Term Talk.
The Journal takes no stock in
the talk of Cleveland being a can
didate for ,1 third term. Itis ab
surd, it may be possible that he
would like a third term in the
white house, it may be : but he is
not so foolish as to become a can
didate, if he doe?. When Grant
was defeated for a nomination
for president for a third term, an
unwritten law, as unalterable as
that of the Medea and Persians,
was fully established. It had
bee'/ established before that, when
Washington declined and Jeffer
son; but this was ti ie filial touch.
No man has lived who had a
stronger following 'han General
Grant; but with all el'his popu
larity he was unable to overcome
the decree of the peop.'o against a
third term. Grover Cleveland
knows all this and he is not going
to array himself against publie
sentiment in that way.
He knows that such a contest
would end in certain defeat. Un
der all the circumstances, with!
the party divided upon leading]
questions, wi iii a strong faction
of his part}- bitterly opposed to
his policy he could not bo f-lncted,
even were it a second instead ol a
third term to which he was aspir
ing. Ho is WA su blind that he
does rn/: see these things. Uo will
not br> a candidat" fur a third
term, lie will retire from public
life at noon on the fourth da y of
March. 1895 and will no more be
come an occupaut ol' the White :
House. The republicans could <
wish for nothing easier than lo see i
Grover Cleveland nominated by
bis party fora third terra ; but
they wi?l not have that pleasure.
He will not want to be a,candi
date, unless the contention in the
ranks ot* his own party might take
such a shape that he could get
even with his enemies only by
such a course.-Knoxville Jour
EDITOR ADVERTISK? : Thereseems
to be a disposition on the part of
ngODcl many Democrats regardless
of faction in our county, to send
the best men to the constitutional
convention, this is emphatically
right. I therefore nominate a gen
tleman of undoubted integrity, a
statesman of ability, as all must
agree-and one who for his high
qualities as a mau-a statesman
and a soldier-is beloved 'ali over
this great country-from the great
Lakes to the Gulf and from the
Atlantic to the Pacific. We mean
the Hon. M. C. Butler.

Mit. EDITOR: This .question,
while not definitely settled, is vet
in a far better and more hopeful
shape than when 1 wrote you last,
week. I was pleased to read in
tho "State" this (Tuesday) morn
ing, that some twenty representa
tive conservatives,-good men and
true,-had met in your town on
Saturday last, and resolved to vote
at the approaching Primary; and
what those gentlemen say I know
they intend to do. True, Capt.
Lake, in sending the Resolution as
adopted by the conference to the
"State," takes occasion to sa}' : "In
my judgment the larger portion of
Simon-Pure Democrats will not
vote in irby's primary." But, Mr.
Editor, I am prone to believe thal
the action of the Twenty Confer
ence will be more generally en
dorsed than Capt. Lake's "judg
ment" leads him to imagine. The
members of the conference may
not be quite up to Capt. L's im
maculate conception of the '"Simon
Pure," but there is no taint of Iu
depeudantism JU their make-up,
nor will there be later on. Be
cause they have been taught to be
lieve, like the rest of us, that "An
Independent is worse than a Rad
ical," and they adhere to that opin
Therefore, Mr. Editor, now that,
it is probable that the conserva
tives will vote at the Primary, I am
better satisfied, and will march up
to the polls and deposit my ballot
with six names written thereon
part Reformers and part Conser
vatives-and will abide the result.
And am sure that many other?,
without regard to party lines or
party faction, will clo likewise.
So hurrah for the "Better time
a'coraing ! And

People are now beginning to
talk as to whom they will send to
the convention. Well, it's time t:
talk if they have anything to say,
aa its only ten days until the pri
mary. Some favor Mr. Mack Sim
kins, who passed by here this
morning on his way to Good Hope
to attend the meeting to be held
at that place to-day. Many re
formers favor Mack and will vote
for him regardless of the way tho
so-called conservatives treated him
in the last election. They com
mitted a great wrong and treated
him badly. It is hard for reform
ers to know and tell what to do in
regard to conservatives. Some of
their boss leaders advise them not
to go into the primary nor have
anything to do with it at all, so
reformers don't know whether or
not to vote for any of these. Judg
ing by their actions in the past it
appears that nothing short of turn
ing over the State government to
these will satisfy them. I am not
willing to go that far, but favor
peace and unit), and give to them
representation in the convention
according to the number of votes
they cast. That is all they can

I know that they have a light to ask

Editor Bacon fool 3d the people
badly this week. They were eager

he would have lo savin reply to

paper arrived they opened it. and
scanned closely each column, brit
they did not find the slightest al

not replying; they had thought
that Editor Bacon would hold
