Executive Committed by acclamation.
He returned bis thanks for tbe honor
conferred on him and said he would
: do all be c <nld to advance the inter
ests of ths Democracy. He paid a
tribute to the fi dality of the Orange
burg Democrats, who he said cast the
olggest vote of any county in the
Sbt** kt, the last general clco'Jon. Tain
eomplecea tue routine business and
the convention was ready to go iato
tne consideration of other business.
Hon. 1. W. Bowman intrucucsd a
-hort preamble aid tome resolutions,
which caus d some dlscussloD, ano
brought aboui the only div sltn dur
log toe meeting. The p:eamble an:.
resolutions read as follows.
Wherras, Hon. B :i j tmln R Till
man, United States Senator from
South Carolina, has by bis work in
?.bis Sta e, and by his course in con
gress proven uimself the great expo
uent of tne Democracy of ih.s S^aie,
Whereas, By HI* fearless and con
splcuous ability in the United State*
Senate, the greatest deliberative body
of the world, he has replaced Scuib
Carolina among the i; adirg States of
chls great Union, where slo properly
Re olved, By the Djm c *acy of 0 ?

sembled, thai we, believing th3 S'ate
D:spensary system to he the best so
lutlon of the liquor q leation, do here
oy endorse in tjto *.ae stand on tnat
quss.ion taken by Soaator Ti lman
Re&uived, That we enaorse tbr
course of Senator Tillman in the
Uaited Statt s Senate on rai road rate
hill, and on every other question in
R solved, That we pledge him our
support in the ensuing primary elec
tion to succ&d himself as Uni ed
Mr. T M. Dantzler, of Providence,
precipitated a warm discussion by
moving to strike out the resolution
referring to (he dispensary.
Capt. J H. Fanning, of Spring
field, moved that the whole preamble
and resolutions be laid on the table.
He said he was opposed to the conven
tion telling the people what they
must do as they were anply able to
take care of the dispensary and all
other questions without any tugges
tlons ficm this convention.
Dr. J. H Pice, of Limestone, seo
onded Mr. D*ntzier's motion to sir ke
out the resolutsten referring to the
dispensary. Ha said he was not in fa
vor of the convention passing on the
dlspersary question, and though t'te
people shoulu b? allowed to settle the
matter in the primary, as it had been
referred to tr em ty ti.e members of
the legis ature.
Col. D. O. Herbert made a strte
ment in referei co to the position of
the members of tbe legislature from
this county on the dispen ary ques
tion He said evary member of the
delegation with the excepslon, of one
voted every time for the dispensary,
and did all they, could to pass the
Raysor- Manning bid, whlon he
thought would have gone a long way
to purify the dispensary. He though'
the convention h.da perfect right to
pass the preamble and tesilutions,
but such aotion, would not oind the
iadividual voter, wao had the right
to vote for or against tbe di pensary
In the prlmiry as he saw tie rega d
less of tbe action of the convention.
Mr. T. M. Dantzler said he bad not
made the motion to lay taereao ution
oh tbe tab e out of hostility to S ma
ator Tlilman, as he was a warm sup
porter of tnat gentleman, and would
dead he could to send him back to the
Senate. His oopo*ltion was to tne
disp nsary, aid he tojei thai th
convent oo wouid agree with mm on
tbe matter and kill the dispensary
Dr. Price and Capt FanniDg both
agreed with Mr. Dantzler thai it was
qo fight on Sena or Tillm in. Tney
were opposed to the dispensary ar d
did not toink the convention sh< u d
pass cn the question in advance of tue
people in the pilmary.
The question was brought uoa vite
by some one moving to lay Mr. Dm
z er's motion on the table, which was
dore by a vote of 96 to 25. The crl
gleal preamble and resolutions as in
troduced by the Hon. 1. W. B iwman
was then passed by a Urge majority.
The discussion of the matter was
spirited but in the best Of human, not
a ?vord belog said that any one could
take the least exception to. T~e appo
ints of the dispensary did not think
tnat Senator Tillman had any busi
ness to Interfere ii the dispensary
fight, and that is the reason they ob
jected to the passing of the resolution
referring to the dispensary. A reso
lution slcnpiy endorsing S nator Till
man would have, we belie ve, passed
After tne resolutions had been dis

They had made a gallant fight

Sunday night at the iome of her
mother, Mrs. J. W. L iwmnn, In this

ed lady in the broadest sense of that
term. She was a mu.-lcljn and artist

had taught in several scuuos and
cilleg^s with great success. She was
a beautiful character and was greatly
beloved by all who knew her, and will
nut only be missed at her home cir
cle, hut by many who knew and ap
preciated her genuine worth as a
Christian. She was only thirty-live
years of age. She had b. en for years
a con-ecrated member uf the Baptist
enure i and her going awiy was like
une falling asleep. Her death Is
peculiarly sad, in that, hhe leaves a

Saturday. The meeting was oalled to
order by President Waonamaker at
eleven o'clock, and the association got

of business the president read a letter
from Maj jr J 0. Hemphlll, editor of
the News and Courier, saying it was
impossible for him to attend the meet

that had called him away from home.
The regret was general that Major
Hemphlll ould not be present and ad

successful farmers, opened the hog and

as Mr. Fairey is up-to-date, In bis
Prof. Hwper, also of Clemson Col

makiDg of a g >od corn crop. All in all
his was one of tbe best meetlr gs ever
held by the association in this county.
