CoI.UMBIA, S. C., September 24.
The Rep1ublican Convention assembled
at 9 o'clock a. m., but the Committee
on Credentials still being unable to
roport, all adjouvrnot until 2 o'clock
was taken. At. that time another re.
cos was taken until 4 o'clock, wv hn
the committee came in and submitted
its report in the contested cases. The
committec recommended the seating of
the regular delegates from Abbeville,
Richland and Colleton, and the report
was adopted without discussion. In
the Charleston case the majority re
ported in favor of seating both delega
tions, giving a half vote to each dele
gate. A minority recommended the
seating of the delegation lleaded by
Postmaster Taft. In the Sumtcr case
the report recommended the seating of
the delegation headed by Richardson.
Freeman, of the Taft. Charleston dele
gation, took the floor to advocate the
adoption of the minority report. lie
began by explaining the manner of the
election in Charleston and got along
easily until the opposing delegates be
gan to put questions to him. IIe an
swered' very promptly for awhile, nntil
becoming excited, he charged political
rascality upon it. L. Smith, the color
editor of theg Palmetto Prcss. Smith
was one of' the opposition, and attemp
ted to ilterrupt the speaker. Another
delegate interripted Slith, and theu
followed Ia scene only witnessed in
Reptublican conventions and at negro
minstrel shows. Coats were thrown
o,l; oaths were freely indulged in and
for some moments an old-fashioned
knock down and drag out appeared
imilinent. After considerable eil'ort
quiet was restored and Freeman con
eluded. Slmitll followed. lie produic
ed nalnerotus aflidavits to prove that
Taft's crowd had stuflled the hallot
boxes a'ud thus def'eated the will of tile
liepubliean voters of Chlarleston coun
ty, and he appealetd to the conlvention
not to endorse such infmilnotis practices
by seating the delegation. Taft took
the iloor, he said, not only to put himi
self right personally, but, as county
chairiall, to defend the Republican
party, which had ben besmirched
worse by these meu than had ever been
done by the Democrats. ie went on
then to show the clean record of his
party under him as chairman, and con
eluded with an appeal to the conven
tion to seat, his delegation.
At the conclusion of Taft's speech,
Miller, of Bcanfort, presnl ted ill invi
tiation to the convention to attend the
memorial services in honor of R. B.
Elliott, and moved an adjournment of
one hour and a half for the purpose of
allowing the members of the conven
tion to attend the services. The
motion was ahnost unanimously de
fcated. Pinckney, a coal black' dar
key, answered Taft and produced evi
deuce to prove ie charue augainst the
Taft crowd. lie was followed by Mc
Kiulay, of Charleston. and Paris Sim
kius, of Edgeield, as Clairmul of the
Committee on Credentials, closed the
debate. The vote was taken on the
minority report seating the Taft dele
gat iou. The report was rejected hb a
vote of 6 1 to 48. Taft arose and said
that, as an h1olorable Republican, le
could not accept tie majority report,
giving each of the delegations a halt
vote, and lie wol withdraw; you
maly take your palcked conlvenItionl,
with the revenuo ring. "'You lup-couni
