COLUMBIA, S. C., Dec. 20 -Wben t he
redistricting bill was called, the cues.
tion being on the motion of'Mr. Brea
zeale to reconsider th.- bill, there was a
great deal of confusion. A balf dozen
members of each iside were on the fi or
all at once, discussIng how the ma ter
should be considered. They made all
sorts of proposit ions to each other as
to the conduct of debate, some sort of
agreement being flnally arrived it t o
the cffect that the debate continue for
Mr. Bacot, of Charleston,opened the
deb te. He made a ringing speech in
behaif of Charlesto' Hesaid that tbe
Republicans had taken up the cr.v th at
the city of Charleston will have to Ie
represented fairly by a Repub
lican and unfairly by a Dt m
ocrat. God fornid that wel
shall ever have to use fraud at the
ballot box. My heart is in this tnatter.
I believe that the good of this SIate
calls for the representat ive of this ilis
trict by a white man, having the inter
Got of tk;# State at heart, The City of
Charleston stands toJay a your only
metropolis. Will )ou see her stiffer for
political ends? 'he people of our city
have time and again neen cast down
but thank God we have never been des
troyed. We can ind will, %aith a heart
for anything, learn to labor arid to
Mr. Kirkland, of Kershaw 'said that
he has been content to vote. Ile did
not think he could say anything new.
He for one would not raise the black
fag over Charleston as an emblem of
factional victory. I take it that it has
been distinctly called an act of retalia
tion. I am unwilling to guerrymander
the State against my own people. I do
not believe Charleston can manago
such a district. I have pride in the
city of Charleston, my ancestors caine
from there. I would not put her into
this mud hole.
Mr. bturkie, of Orangeburg, favored
the measure and held that Charieston
could carry the district. He had been
tulWthat Maj. Brawley bad said that,
he- could carry the Seventh district.
You are aware how the Democrats of
Charleston and 11ch1and have opposea
the platform of the party In control of
this State. It seems to me that Char
leston is not only content to send her
man to Congress, but she wants to put
her hands onthe rural districts and say
you shall have no voice in Congress.
In our present condition we have no
voice In the national counsel. This
change would give Charleston her man
but suppose It did not, but which is
the most Important a man to look after
the port of Charleston or a man to look
after the Denjocratic platform adopted
by us In May, 1892. Under present conI
ditions we. have no reprcsentative in
Congress. All we want is the saine
chance that Charleston has. If I were
in the position of Charleston anJ Rich
land I Would not ask for the defeat of
this bill; you all know the Orangeburg
representative in Congress stands with
us. I will ask you to stand by us and
ask will you stand by Charleston and
slap us in the face. Will you keep us
in a position where we can never se
cure a representative in Congress.
Mi. Thomas, of Rtichland, wanted to
tuow whether the memib-rs can recon
mile It to their duties to reconsider this
'atter. What change has come over t
us to change our votes. Are the mem
berm mere puppets to be pulled by a
string as desired. I believe the people t
of Carolina are free men yet. Sonme of h
the appeal have been utterly un worthy y
of the men. tL'ome of the men deliber
ately say It Is to humiliate the proud
old city. Because they differ and ex -
ercise their judgment is no reason to
make them suffer.
I say that the arauments in favor of
the bill are: ist. The, old city needs h
punishment, and ha'not acted right.,
and 2nd, that Chi &~ton could contin- r
nie to get her r,resentative, even if r
p .4t in the Bla - district. The policyc
of 'th% ma c;ty in that district are car
tied out byits present members. Tfhey
are exercising their rights. Has the h
minority nto right to representation.
The Democratic principles we sustain
ed are far better sustained by the Con.
gresamen from Charleston than the a
one from Anderson. Are the minority c
to have no rights at all ? The voic, or.
30,000 or 40,00 ought to be heard. Why jj
should we come bere and try and give e
no effect to the votes of Charlest on?y
We simply ask for justice to Chart s- 0
ton. Her interests are ours-.
Mr. Watson, of Anderson, miade a set c
spech n fvorof the hill1. lHe said e
tha hedidnothear reflections ab)out ()
men changing their votes. The other i
ports of the State have as much right di
as Charleston. While you have always
been true to platforms, this is no time h
to go back. We have made a platforrm a
and it is for all of the people of the o
State. I maintain here that the pro- t~
duce of the farmers bring all the mon
ey into this State. I
Col. Hlaskell-They own only one- ,
third of the property in the State and
do not bring all the money in the t
Mr. Watson--There Is no question ly
that Msj. Win. A. Birawley is dictating y
most all the office-holders. Hie hap
pens to be in elbow touch with the ad
ministration. is It not fair that Win. 1)
II. Brawley should not consult the ca
other Congressmen of South Carolina. y,
He did not carry the electoral vote of 11,
8onth Carolina for Cleveland nor did J.
Charleston do so. It was the work of ni
the true Democrats of South Carolina. Li
Mr.8Skinner, of Barn well, was oppos- m
ed to the present bili, but he favored a Si:
bill to r nlate (harleston by white St

with Edgefle'ld and Barnwell. If you W

. M. D. A. J. Sullivan, of Charleston,t
said that there was no spirit of fair- b
nesabu the proposed bill that Char- h
leeton had been as faithful to the De- a
mocrctio party as any part of the State u
and that at this time especially would a
40 be unkind to p lace her in a possi bill
of a represstative that sha did not v
gra to have. The last election in Char- 4
Imaton was as fair if not fairer than the
ajity of the elections in this State. tb
M. as.of Lexington, said that 1,- t
.600 out of 3100 votes are for a change. t
