?RANGEBUU?, August 19.?The Con
gressional Convention of the First Dis
trict met here to-day and finished their
labors alter an hour's session, which
was characterized by remarkable har
f inony amf unanimity. As anticipated,
I there was no candidate offered in op
f- position to Mr. Dibble, and the latter
p was unanimously and enthusiastically
re-nominated to represent this district
' in the United States Congress.
The Charleston delegation reached
here shortly after H o'clock, on the Co
lumbia train, and upon their arrival
were met at the depot by the Orange
burg delegation and driven in car
riages up to Fairy's Hotel where break
fast was served. *
A heavy rain fell here last night,
which had a cooling effect upon the
temperature, and the weather wsis
found very pleasant indeed lor the
A caucus of the Charleston delega
tion was held at the hotel room after
their arrival, and it was found that all
the members were either present in
person or represented by substitutes.
At 11 o'clock the delegates assembled
in the Courtroom of the Courthouse,
where the Convention was to be held;
and a few minutes later the Convention
was called to order by Mr. George 1).

''It giyus the executive committee great
pleasure to see present so large a represen
tation of the counties composing this Con
gressional District. You are called together
to-day to make the nomination of a Demo
cratic candidate for the First Congressional
District, and also to transact any other
business that yon way deem proper. The
other business in the call of the committee
is directed to the recent amendment of the
Constitution, making it optional with each
Congressional District to have their nomi
nation by the convention system as hereto
fore practiced, or to nominate the candi
date for Congress by a primary election.
You will have, however,.to call a special
convention to consider that question.
"These are the only matters before you
to-day. At the lequest of the committee, 1
would ask the lion. George Lapib Buist to
act as temporary chairman, and Messrs. J.
Brooks mngard, of Lexington, and J. M.

such a large and influential gathering of
the representatives of our various constitu

It gives me great pleasure to rise to nomi
nate as the Democratic candidate from this
Congressional District one who has served
us faithfully and well for a long period of
time. In watching his course we are all of
us convinced that he hits left nothing un
done which was for the best interest of this
district. Not only has he exerted himself
for the best interest of the "City bv the
Sea" m getting appropriations and in "look
ing after the wants of his constituents there,
but he has also looked after, and very par
ticularly so, the mail service throughout the
country districts. Mv information leads
me to know that he has established the
best routes throughout this whole countv,
which have materially facilitated commu
nication between the inhabitants of this
district. He has always stootl in the fore
front in those things which are for the ma
terial advancement of this district and
which are for the material advancement
and glory of the Democratic party in Con
gress. [Applause.] It gives me" peculiar
pleasure to bear this testimony at this day,
because I can look back to innnv years ai;?
in the City of Charleston when 1 first nomi
nated the gentleman for our representative
in Congress. At that time it was no idle
light. The serried black ranks of our foes
stood before us. ft was no child's play to j
elect a member from this district then. You j
will remember what a gallant tight lie
made in the halls of Congress for his seat,
and how, after he was ousted, lit1 again
came forward and made the fight for us. [
To-day we stand victors on this soil with
the representative of our choice in the halls
of Congress. [Applause.] It is unneces
sary forme to speak fuither than to give
you the name of the Hon. Samuel Dibble,
one who has ever been faithful to the
Democratic party, and who, I am sure, will
never permit anv dishonor to the rest upon
The announcement of Mr. Dibble's
name called forth long- and continued
applause, after the subsidence of which
speeches endorsing and seconding his
nomination were made by Mr. F. C.
Fishburne, chairman of the Colleton
delegation, Mr. T. \V. Bacot, of Charles
ton, and Dr. A. S. Hydrick, chairman
of the Orangeburg delegation.
Mr. Gilliland then moved that .Mr.
Dibble be unanimously elected as the
Democratic nominee for Congressman
from the First District, and that the
chairman be authorized to so cast tb-i
vote of the Convention. The motion
was unanimously carried, and the
chairman, having cast the vote of the
Convention for Mr. Dibble, declared
him unanimously elected, amid loud
applause on the part of the delegates.

During the absence of the committee

A. S. Hydrick read the following
preamble and resolutions relating to
the death of Adjt. (Jen. Manigault,
which were seconded by Gen. J. F.
Izlnr and unanimously adopted by the
Convention by a standing vote :
Mr. Chairman: As a question of privilege
I rise to offer the following tribute, imper
fect, yet justly due to the memory of him
whose rest is* won at last in the bosom of
his dear old Charleston. The sad tidings
reach us that Gen Arthur M. Manigault
died at his plantation home on the 10th
instant, and his funeral services were per
formed in Charleston on yesterday, the
18th. While the State feels a bereavement,
which calls forth universal regret to such
of us whose privilege it was to know him,
this is an occasion for deep sorrow. Gen.
Manigault's epitaph might be written in
two words?the' Patriot and Gentleman !
Iiis services to the United States in the
fierce conflict with Mexico fixed him in the
public mind as a gallant soldier. We re
member him again in the walks of modest
life, the dignified, hospitable, courtly
gentleman, and, again, when the tocsin
sounded for the sons of the South in 18(31 he
was in the van. There he stayed, maimed
yet defiant, until his flag was lowered in
Johnston's surrender. Hopeful, though
suffering from his wounds, he returned to
the peaceful pursuits of the citizen, and
while none was more loyal to the "Lost
Cause." in principle and in deed, yet, when
the arbitrament of the sword folded its
banner, he renewed his allegiance to the
nation's flag, and none more true. There
is a pathos in such a life, a legacy in such
an example. His urbanity and gentleness
were beautifully perspicuous as they stood
out in modest grace. A delicate sensitive
ness rather bridled the forces of both mind
and heart; yet a constant concern for others
showed the generosity of his great soul. He
did not vaunt his services, but when needed
the) were as valuable as they were freely
given. There was a loyalty inseparable
from his career that stamped him With
individuality. Like a pure stream it flowed
on to bless. * He was loyal to the weak, to
his friends, to his country, to himself?a
loyalty that gave purity to enthusiasm, re
pelled* selfishness ami dignified chivalry.
Iiis services to the State, as adjutant and
inspector general, arc ioo well known and
valued forrepelition. Just as he was about
to enter a third term of honorable office, he
is stricken down?not having recovered
from a serious wound received in 18U4 in
the battle of Franklin, Teno. Therefore,
RESOLVED; by this Convention, that we
record our sorrow with that of the State of
South Carolina at the grave of her gallant
That we enshrine his life, soldierly deeds
and services as a public legacy to posterity.

After a short absence the committee
returned and escored into the hall the
lion. Samuel Dibble, who was presented
to the Convention amid enthusiastic
cheering and applause. '
As soon us the uproar had subsided
Mr. Dibble addressed the Convention
"Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the
Convention : The occasion of the nomina
tion to a public office such as this is an im
portant exeecise of citizenship. It is the
selection by the members of a political
party of one of their number to maintain
the tenets and principles of that party in
the eanv;iss, and if, elected to office, to
represent them in his official career. It is
the prelhhinaiy presentation to the public
of a private citizen with their suffrages to
represent them at times and places where,
Irom the nature of things, the great body
politic cannot be present, and while his
constituency are pursuing their usual avoca
tions, to maintain their rights, guard their
liberties and to advance their political and
"It has been my privilege, a high and
honored privilege I have esteemed it, to
have fulfilled this duty for the best interests
of Hie constituency which 1 represent; to
have acted, as it were, under the power of
attorney from the people of the First Con
gressional district in the Fedeial halls of
legislation in Congress. Looking back
upon tluit career, I Unit many shortcomings,
but 1 can only say that they "have been not
of the heart, luit owing to that natural in
ability ol human nature to do all that it
ought to do. Rut there has been no lack
ing in the desire that I have ever felt to
represent this constituency in its true inter
est, and 1 have ever felt that my position
was that of a public servant, serve their
interests ffhd not my own. [Applause.]
"Mr. Chairman, from the bottom of my
heart I thank you to-day. 1 thank this
Convention. I thank the constituency,
whose sentiments they have so cordially
presented lo me, for this renewed mark
of their confidence and esteem. It shall
sustain me in the canvass and shall sustain
me in all the duties of Federal legislation,
and I hope that my right hand will forget
its cunning and my mind will forget its
power if I ever forget that in that field 1
am there to serve the best interest of the
First Congressional district of South Caro
"We meet, lellow-eitizens, under circum
stances rather different from the past. The
Congressional Convention meets for the
lust time in many years to nominate can
didates to support the Administration of
the Democratic party at Washington. As
I believe that on occasions like this it is
proper for those who are honored with the
public trust to announce their position, 1
will say of the Administration at Washing
ton that 1 have ever given to the Adminis
tration of President Cleveland cordial,
hearty and earnest support, amfl trust to
do it in the future as 1 have done it to the
best of no, ability in the past. [Applause.]
Loyal from birth, tradition and education
to every principle and tenet of the great
old Jeffersonian Democratic party. 1 stand,
as we all stand, upon every plank of the
National Democratic platform and of the
State platform as announced at the recent
Convention of the party. We stand to
gether in Democratic doctrine. We stand
together in Democratic unity, in Demo
cratic unity ami Democratic doctrine I feel
confident, fellow-citizens, that we will
stand together in Democratic triumph.
"The present is a period when many
grave questions engage public attention,
when the best thought of the country is
upon the problems which now agitate the
public mind. The day of war issues is
posing away. The bloody shirt is no
longer waved with the ferocity and fury of
a few years ago. The issues of to-day are
practical issues. The question of the cur
rency, sound money and sound credit, the
question of the relations of labor to capital,
that labor shall not be subservient to capital
nor capital to labor, but that they shall
work hand in hand, promoting the common
interest of both and the common prosperity
of the country; the questions of direct and
indirect taxation-and the removal of the
burdens which were introduced in a time
of war and have been continued in a time
of peace; the foreign relations of this great
Government with other powers of the earth:
commercial relations, relations involving
questions of international law and inter
national right; all of these and many other
questions are now in front, and "it is a
period when practical legislation is very
much needed. In your interest and in the
interest of the common country I pledge
myself to the faithful consideration of these
questions and to decide and act upon them
to the good of my constituency and the com
mon gor jf our country. 'Thanking you
again for this mark of your faith, I shall go
forth in this canvass cheered and sustained
by the events of this day."
Mr. Dibble's remarks were frequently
punctuated with enthusiastic applause,
and at their conclusion were followed
by long and continued cheering.
EXDORSIOG PRESIDENT CLEVELAND.
Mr. Bryan then rose and said that it
gave him great pleasure to hear an en
dorsement of President Cleveland's
Administration by our representative
in Congress. That Administration had
done much tor the Democratic party.
It had done so much, in fact, that he
believed the Democracy would be again
successful two years hence, lie thought
that this was in a great measure due to
the wise and conservative ability dis
played by Mr. Cleveland, and he thought
that in this national convention, for it1
was a national convention, they should
take some recognition of the service
which he had rendered his party, and
that, too, in a direction which few
supposed would be carried out when
the civil service plank* was put into the
Democratic platform two years ago.
He would, therefore, offer a resolution
that this Convention endorse civil
service reform as enforced by Presi
CONVENTION VERSUS PRIMARY.
Mr. Dryan's resolution was unani
mously adopted. He then called the
attention of the Convention to the re
cent amendment made by the State
Convention to the constitution of the
party, making it optional with the
Congressional districts whether the
nomination of the Congressmen should
hereafter be made by primaries or by
convention as at present. He said that
he would like to have; the sense of the
Convention in this matter, as a guide
for them to act by in ealling future
conventions. Hearing no expression
of opinion on the subject, he said that
he would offer the following resolution:

Convention that the conventional system
heretofore used in the nominating of Con

for the primary system because he
really believed it was the best thing
for his county, but that in the hdniinat-i

plan was the best.

vote and unanimously adopted.

come a tower of strength, and has been
well earned by the untiring devotion of

astonishing prosperity hast provoked attaeffs
