I GEORGIA CONVENTION
' WAS STORMY AFFAIR
TOM WATSON GOES TO BALTIMORE
AS A DELEGATE.
He Lost His Fight to Control State
Convention??ar Clash Between
Watson and Felder.
Atlanta, Ga., May 29.?Tom Watson
lost his fight to control the Democratic
State convention today, but ne won a
place on the Baltimore delegation.
Even this victory is a doubtful one, as
the Georgia delegation goes to the national
convention bound by the unit
rule and controlled by men who are
Watson's avowed enemies.
Though balked at every turn, Wat
eon tried valiantly to Drean ine power
of tlie socalled "ring." Watson was
spoiling for a fight while the leaders
were bent on having harmony even if
they had to use a bludgeon on Watson
to get it. The McDuffie delegate
was made a delegate at large in recognition
to his services in behalf of
Mr. Underwood, but he was denied a
voice in the naming of his fellow
"Watson was not treated very court
eously by the convention, Wiien ne
tried to speak in opposition to the
election of delegates at large by acclamation,
he was hissed and jeered
at from pit to gallery.
"You can't hiss and ihoot me down,"
he defied his opponents. But they did,
Watson giving up the struggle after
pitting his voice against the tumult for
15 minutes. The episode furnished
one dramatic moment?a moment

Watson and Thomas B. Felder appeared

JDach of the 12 districts held caucuses
and selected four delegates.
Thus the convention sends to Baltimore
56 delegates, with half a vote
each. No alternates have been namedThe
resolutions adopted strongly indorse
Oscar W. Underwood for president
a^id instruct the State's delegation
to vote for him "until his nomination
shall be secured." The resolutions
committee still was in session
with a large number of resolutions
proposed by Watson before it when
the convention adjourned.
At a meeting of the delegates to Baltimore,
after the convention, C. R
Pendleton of Macon, editor of the
Telegraph, was elected chairman of
the delegation. Mr. Watson's name
also was presented, but withdrawn a:
his own request.
Clark Howell, editor of the Atlanta
Constitution, was re-elected as n itional

VfiyD, RAIN AND HAIL.
A Heary Blow, Accompanied by Hard
Rains and Some Hail, in the County
A severe wind storm, accompanied
by exceedingly heavy rains and some
hail, swept over sections of Newberry
countv late Monday afternoon. The
wind and rain were especially heavy
in the Jalapa neighborhood and the
surrounding community. At Mr. Oscar
Mayer's place the rain was one
of the heaviest in many years, and
was accompanied by hail, and the
wind was high. Shingles were taken
off Mr. Mayer's roof, a portion of his
piazza taken away, and other minor
damages done to buildings on the
place. Other places felt the effects of
the s torm, and big trees' were uprooted.
A stable was blown down on the old
Lake place, rented by Messrs. B. E.
Julien and C. W. Buishop. Some stock
were in the stable, but they were released
without serious injury.
In the city the heavy clouds caused
a good deal of alarm, but they passed
off without any very heavy blow, and
there was very .little rain.
Xo injuries to persons have-been reported
in the county.
