COL. JNO. 0. BALLENTUTE
Nominated for Congress on tho
When we went to press last week
the convention was in great turmoil
It was then doubtful whether it
would be able to organize. The
committee on credentials labored
all day Wednesday and nearly all
night. The convention met and
adjourned Thursday morning. In
the afternoon the following resolu
tion was adopted:
Kksolvbd. That all persons in this
body claiming to be delegates to this
convention hereby pledge themielves
to abide by its action and support its
nominett; and, that. - all candidates
whose names may be proposed for the
nomination shall be pledged to the
same e fleet.
About 4 o'clock the committee on
credentials was announced. A
unanimous report was submitted as
to all delegates except those from
the 5th, Cth and 9th districts of
Maury county and one or two in
Williamson. The Hancock vote
was adopted at a Dasis ior voting
upon preliminary questions.
w. A. Stewart or lawrence pre
sented the majority report as to the
contested districts from Maury, rec
ommendin2 the recognition of the
Jno. II. Henderson of Williamson
presented the minority report.
I he contestants from each dis
trict were allowed 15 minutes each
to present argument and proof be
fore the convention, except the Co
lumbia contestants, who were al-
owed 25 minutes each. The argu
mentas to the 5th district then com
menced. Judge Jones moved that both
sets ot delegates be admitted, each
to cast half the vote; that the ma
jority report as to the Gth district
be adopted; that the list of dele
gates lrom the Vth headed by
Barclay Martin be also admitted.
It wa never put, being lost in a
confusion of amendments and mo
tions in lieu, all of which ware final
ly declared out of order.
II. 1. Figucrs called for the vote
on admitting the delegates lrom
S. C. Mitchell moved that the
delegates from the th and 9th be
excluded from voting.
tjguers moved in lieu that
the uncontested delegates from
Maury be allowed to cast the vote
of the county.
Mitchell moved to lay it on the
table, which was carried by a vote
by counties GO J to G0j.
Delegates from Mayry asked the
chair to state how many votes
Maury would be allowed to cast and
the chair decided that she should
cast 33, less the number entitled to
be cast by the 5th, Gth and 9th
Mr. Taliaferro moved that the
Henderson report be adopted.
Mr. Figuers moved in lieu that
the Burke delegates be seated.
The motion in lieu was lost by
G9 to 60.
On motioa of Mr. Taliaferro the
majority report as to the Oth district
Jlr. Mitchell moved that the Hen
derson report as to the 9th district
The argument then proceeded
and was carried on with exceeding
bitterness for two hours or more,
until it seemed that the conven-
ion would burst up without even
organizing. A vote would certain-
have seated the anti-Whitthorne
delegates from Columbia, but it was
asierted that it would endanger the
ucccss of the party in Maury and
woul4 engender strife and rebellion.
Judge Jones finally moved in
lieu that both sets of delegates be
admitted and on call by counties it
carriedby a vote of 102 to 22, Mau
ry herself casting the Tl votes.
. FRIDAY MORNING.
Giles changed her vote on last
motion to 16 ayo and 10 no.
The counties then named the loir
lowing committee on permanent or
ganization: Dickson, M. H. But

Judge Thos. M. Jones introduced
tho following resolutions.
Kesolvkd, That the following rules
and regulations are hereby adopted for
the government of conventions which
may be hereafter called to nominate

of the legislature in this congressional

The committee on permanent or
ganization reported, recommending
Judcre Thos. M. Jones for chair
man and Geo. W. Currin of Wil
Iiamson for secretary. Adopted.
Jude Jones was escorted to the
chair and addressed the convention
at some length, counselling modera
tion and harmony.
The committee on basis of repre
sentation submitted two reports,
the majority favoring the Hancock
vote and the minority the Wright
and Wson vote. Ihe majority re
port was adopted by a vote of 66!
A resolution was introduced by
Mr. Johnson of Williamson endors
ing Gen. Wm B.. Bate and pledging
the delegates to this convention to
his support. It raised a storm of
opposition from the Bate demo
crats, who based their objection to
its adoption upon the ground that
this was a federal convention and
that slate issues should not be in
troduced because of the fact that
the Columbia convention- had in
vited Fussell democrats to partici
pate in this convention and they
had come here under that invita
tion and had been received, and
now they should not be hampered
by a resolution to compel them to
renounce opinions which this con
vention had agreed to waive when
it invited their co-operation. Many
protests were entered by Bate dem
ocrats and the resolution was de
feated by a vote of 66 no to 63 i
aye. It was specially understood
that this resolution was defeated
solely upon the grounds stated, the
delegates in no wise renouncing
their allegiance to the democratic
nominee and platform, but waiving
it out of consideration for the Fus
sell delegates, who accepted it upon
t. ii. Hemphill introduced a reso
lution pledging the delegates to
support the nominee. Adopted.
On motion the convention adop
ted the two-thirds rule.
The chair announced nominations
in order and ordered a call of coun
ties. When it come to Williamson,
John II. Henderson presented the
name of Col. Nicholas N. Cox. S.
C. Mitchell of Giles and W. L.
Grigsby of Dickson seconded the
nomination. There were no other
nominations and the roll was or
dered. In giving the ballots we on

The last few ballots were badly
confused and the excitement was
intense. Motions to adjourn were
made and voted dorn and delegates
were hurrying to and fro, until the
59th ballot, when Dickson changed
her vote solid for Ballentine and
the other counties came rushing to
him and his nomination was made
unanimous. This was about 1
o'clock. Amotion had been adop
ted at the outset of the night ses
sion resolving not to adjourn until
a nomination was made. About
midnight Mr. Taliaferro raised the
point of order that a motion to ad
journ to a stated time meant that
the body would adjourn at that
time if not sooner, and that a mo
tion to adjourn at any time was not
excluded by the resolution. The
chair ruled that the point was well
taken, but the convention refused te
adjourn. When the climax came
there was the wildest excitement.
Col. Ballentine was loudly called
and came before the convention
and accepted the nomination in a
ringing speech, promising toj carry
the banner to victory and to make
a vigorous canvass.
Speeches were made by the
chairmen of the different delega
tions endorsing and applauding the
nomination and piomismg vigorous

tion endorsing its actioa, and Mr.

men headed by Mr. Creorge buttle,
jr., went to the negro s nouse and
found him a short distance away
in a thicket playing cards with two
other negroes, ms aiannea expres
sion gave him away at once.
He was taken to Elkton and
the preliminary trial deferred to
Tuesday so that all the evidence
might be adduced and his guilt or
innocence clearly proven. Mrs
Rogers was at the trial and identi
fied the negro. She knew him well
and had given his name before and
there was not the least shadow ol
doubt that he was guilty. That
clearly established, there was but
one thing left to do, and that thing
s exactly what Giles county men
will always do.
The beast was taken to the high
iron bridge over Elk rtver, a rope
was adiusted aooit his necx and
the other end made fast to the rail-

long will it take these lustful fiends
to find out that hanging is their
sure fate? This negro was recently
ia the workhouse for some offense.

direful vengeance does not remove
the pangs of the dreadful outrage,

A Woman's Devotion.
This beautiful and pathetic play
was presented at Antoinette Hall by
the famous Huntley Dramatic Com
pany Tuesday night and elicited
great applause from a large audi
ence. The scene is in California in
'49, and the play depicted a woman's
devotion and another woman's fri
volity, a man's nobility and anoth
er's 'treachery, all illustrating the
varied intermingling of diverse
characters brought together in
rough times. Miss Florence Ken
nedy sustained to perfection the
character of Claire LeMoyne, ex
hibiting with true and touching ef
fect the purer side of woman's
character and the strength of her
devotion. Mr. Huntley as Joe ex
hibited his usual strength of acting
in showing the purity of character
that sometimes sparkles like a gem
under a rough exterior. Mr. Jno.
W. Blaisdell played Reuben Craig
spendidly and with extra effect.
The other parts were well rendered,
showing the company to be strong
in all its parts. Last night's per
formance was well attended.

Judge Jenei' Flan.
We call the attention of the
country to the resolutions intro
duced by Judge Thos. M. Jones be
fore the late convention. The
necesity for some other method was
so enormously apparent in this
stormy convention that no argument
is needed to commend any. other
plan. We believe that Judge Jones
has hit the best method that can be
devised. The convention did not
take any action because they were
not pressed to a vote nor discussed.
Of course it could not adopt any
method that would govern the party
or be binding anywhere, but they
were introduced for the sanction of
this convention so that the party
officials would take cognizance of
them. It is too early to discuss
them now, but when the time comes,
if we should have a voice and no
other or better meais are suggested,
we shall call attention to this plan
ana urge us adoption.
