WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 1890.
The avowed policy of the "Straight
outs" has been to fight to the last
ditch and to die game. These are
some of the terms in common use
by the Antis, but we confess our ina
bility to comprehend their meaning.
It is certainly not "dying game," when
at the very first defeat in the cam
paign, as was the case at the county
convention last Saturday, they quietly
and submissively retreat from the
field. Such is assuredly a great back
'down from 'fighting to the last ditch.'
But as we said above we cannot com
prehend the language of our friends,
the Antis. They claim to be "Straight
outs," and yet they are the only ones
who now or have ever talked of a
split in the party. We can explain it
enly by believing that "Straightout"
with them now means, "continue us
uninterruptedly in office, or 'by the
eternal' we shall march straightout of
the Democratic conventions and out
of the Democratic party; rather than
suffer defeat in our personal and fac
tion issues, we prefer to see the party
disrupted, and will by our talk espec
ially bend our every effort to further
the destruction of the old Gary idea
of straightout Democracy." If the
above definition of Anti Straighoutism
is not correct, then we are at a total
loss to know what is meant.
No, No; according to our idea of
the terms in the first sentence of this
artic'e,if our Anti friends claim to be
straightout, to fight to the last ditch,
and to die game, they should fight
within the party, and even, as last
Saturday, when defeat lowers on their
banhers, they should stand by their
guns till the last round was fired and
the last hope of success had fled.
They should never so early retire
from the field.
ERis a principle of the Democratic
party that the majority must rule. It
-is not the first time in our history
that the line has been tightly drawn
and one faction has been defeated.
There must be no split. Had the
Tillman men gone down, they would
have risen with the cry, "Hurrah for
Democracy! The white man must
and shall rule !"
THE COUNTY CONTENION.
After carefully and calmly reviewing
the proceedings of the county conven
tion last Saturday, we are confirmed
in the opinion that its actions were
conservative and free from mistakes.
We much regret the course pursued
by the minority, for we cannot believe
it was proper. The majority honestly
believed they were right in protesting
clubs that they felt morally ceitain
were too largely represented, and in
throwing out Calhoun Precinct and in
reducing Clarendon, Deep Creek, and
New Zion, they but did what they
believed was right, and what probably
But the minority in withdrawing
--showed a sprt 'p~a~ objectiona
Zle justaths4 T'~~he action of
~ii~Ol~etiitin throwing out these
~dlgtscertainly cannot be attribu
tany desire to gain an advan
tage, for without such action the con
..vention would still have had a major
ity of more than two to one, and thor
oughly organized. Such being the
facta in the case, and with the high
mnoral tone of the gontlemen compos
ning the committee on credentials, we
$are fbreed to the natural conclusion
ttat the action of the convention in
adlopting the report of the majority
-was right and proper.
SThe convention was throughout
eheaterized with conservatism. It
trnatdsuch business only as it
s called for, and the two important
things the Antis did not want done,
the convention left undone: electing
Rdlgtsto the September conven
tion and nominating county officers.
(There was no attempt or desire on the
Spart of the convention to do anything
ildhawould give offense to any one,
ilenu in the resolutions they were as
ni~endTempertats it w'as possible
SWe are proud of Clarendon. Om
-people have in their every action dur
jing the campaign been as conserva
tive, as gentlemanly, and as true Dem
oerats as our heart could desire.
A -caucus was held last Saturda3
morning by both factions, and th4
presumption is each mapped out
Splan of action. Th~e Antis must have
determined on withdrawing from th<
Sconvention, for when one started al
the others followed in regular order
The only remarkable thing abou'
the convention last Saturday was the
withdrawing of about one-third th<
members, because two-thirds of the
convention decided that the Calhour
Precinct club had been illegally or
ganized and therefore was - not enti
tied to-representation in the conven
tion. Xt lies with the Calhoun club
and is their duty, if they believe thei1
lub was legally organized, to shov~
the facts to the public. The Tm
offers themi all the space they may de
sire to fly ventilate the matter.
.Last night the Democratic Stat4
execntive committee met in Columbia
and a resolution was introduced t<
the effect that the call for the Septem
ber convention be rescinded, so tha
nominations might be made by thiu
convention, but the resolution wai
not acted upon as a majority of th<
ommittee was not present, and i
was deemed advisable that a majorita
of the committee should be present t<
act on the resolution. W. H. Braw
ly, of Charleston, and Chairmax
Hoyt are said to be in favor of the
resolution for the good of the party

Chairman Davis then announced that the I
convention was ready for temporary organi- t<
zation, and called for nominations for a term
porary president. S. A. Nettles was nomii
nated and unanimously elected. Mr. Net- d
ties on taking the chair, after thanking the 0
convention for the honor done him, an-;t
nounced that all present were Democrats, c
and counseled harmony and good feeling. ii
Louis Appelt was then nominated for secre
tary and J. Elbert Davis for assistant secre- t:
tary. Both were elected without oppo- d
As soon as the temporary organization c
was completed Dr. I. M. Woods made a mo- c:
tion that a committee on credentials be ap- fi
pointed consisting of one delegate from
each -uncontested club, which was adopted. S
On motion of E. G. DuBose it was decid- 0
ed that the president of each uncontested
club select the member from his club to
serve on this committee. The following 1
was announced as the committee on cre- c

The following clubs were contested: Al
colu, Calhoun Precinct, Clarendon, Deep i
Creek, Sandy Grove, New Zion, and Trin-|z
ity. The first five are Anti clubs; the last
two Tillman clubs.
On motion of Dr. Woods it was decided
that the convention take a recess until theC
committee on credentials was ready to re
port. After a recess of about three and a
half hours the convention was reconvened
to hear the report of the committee-.
Capt. D. J. Bradham, chairman of the
committee, presented the majority report,.
which in substance 'was as follows: That I
te tnti~~Precinct elub being a new club 2
ad not having biit''48bann -naoe members I
on its roll, a less number than is required *
by the constitution, is not entitled to repre-,
sentation in this convention; that the Clar
endoni club be reduced from four delegates
t three; that the Deep Creek club be re-I
duced from three delegates to two; that the
New Zion club be reduced from four to
three; and that the Abcoln, Trinity, and
Sandy Grove clubs are entitled to the num
ber of delegates reported to the convention.
Joseph F. Rhame, Esq., prcsented an .
oral minority report, objecting to the throw-t
ing out of the Calhoun Precinct club and to
reducing the delegation from the Clarendon
When Mr. .Rhame concluded his argu
ment in favor of the minority report, Col.
H. L. Benbow in behalf of the Calhoun
precinct club made an'able and eloquent
argument against the majority report.
Immediately after Col. Benbow finished
his argument in favor of seating his dele
gation, M1. C. Galluchat, Esq., moved that
the delegates from Calhoun Precinct and
Clarendon clubs be seated. He said that
while he favored the report of the majority,
yet he made this motion in the interest of
peace and harmony, and as the Tillmanites
would not be affected by the seating of (
these delegates he hoped his motion would
prevail. When Mr. Galluchat finished Col.
Benbow said that he appreciated the mo
tive that prompted Mr. Galluchat's motion,
but that the delegates from his club did noti
come to the convention on trembling knees
nor to ask for anything at the hands of this
convention, but that his club roll was a true
and correct one, composed of true and triedi
Democrats. He would not accept a seat on
thin floor unless he was legally entitled to it.
IJ. F. Rhamie, Esq., J. S. Wilson, Esq., and!
I. C. Ingram also made speeches in behalft
of these clubs.
On motion it was decided by a large ma
jority to table Mr. Galluchat's motion. :1
Capt. Bradham moved that the yeas and t
nays be taken on the adoption of the major
ity report. Maj..C. S. Land offered as ain
amendment that the contested clubs be al
lowed to cast the number of votes allowed
them by the majority report, and that the
chairman of each delegation announce the,
vote of his delegation. Capt. Bradham ate
cepted the amendment. The yeas and nays.
were then taken, and the majority report
was adopted by a vote of ?1 to 24.(
At the announcement of this vote Joseph
F. Rhame, Esq., stated that he offered his
protest against the action of the convention,
mld submit though he considered that an
justice had been done the minority. He
en withdrew from the convention follow-!
by the entire Anti delegation.
During this debate there had been some
tle feeling, and each speaker had been
stily cheered, but although the hall was
erally full all were in a good humor and
der was kept. When, however, as if Iy
econcerted arrangement, the Antis began'
file out of the convention, the hall rang
ith loud and continued cheers for Tillman.
rter this there was no opposition, and the
mainder of the session was characterized
ith harm6nious unanimity. -
The chairman announced that the next
isiness was to make the temporary organ
ation permanent. S. A. Nettles was elect
I president; A. W. Thames, Sr. and L. H.
esChamps, vice-presidents; Louis Appelt
id J. Elbert Davis, secretaries.
On motion of J. R. Dingle, Mr. S. A. Net
es was unanimously elected County Chair
an for the ensuing two years.
The convention then confirmed the elec
on of the following county executive coi

As all the Antis had withdrawn the com
tittee of course had no Anti representation
at on motion the executive committee was
athorized to receive as members of that
)mmittee the duly elected member from
ay regularly organized club.
The chairman announced that the next
siness was the election of delegates to the
tate convention, whereupon Louis Appelt I
Erered the following resolutions:

Forty and two years old was he when

MRS. S. A. NETTLEs.
"Let your home," wisely wrote Mrs.
Beecher, "stand first before all other
things. No matter how high your
ambition may transcend its diies. no
matter how far your talents or your
influence nmy -etach bveyoid its doors,
before everything else buill up a true
honie. Be not its slave; be its minis
ter! Let it not be enough that it is
swept and garnished, that its silver is
brilliant, that its food is delicious,
but feed the love in it, feed the truth
in it, feed thought and aspiration,
feed all charity and gentleness in it.
Then from its walls shall come forth
the true woman and true man, who
shall together rule and bless the land."
Is this an overwrought picture? We
think not. What honor car be great
er than to found such a home? What
dignity higher than to reign its undis
puted, honored mistress? What is
the ability to speak from a public
platfori to large, intelligent audi
ences, or wisdoin that nav command
a seat on the judge's bench, compared
to that which can insure and preside
over a true home, that husband and
children "rise and call her blessed ?"
To be the guiding-star, the ruling
spirit, in such a position is higher
honor than to rule an empire.
APE PiE-Stew well-grown green
apples, mash. and strain. To every
pint of apples add half a tea-cupful of
sugar, a tea-spoonful of butter and
the beaten whites of two eggs; flavor
with lemon and nutmeg; line pie-pans
with puff paste, fill with the apples,
bake very quickly, cover the top with
meringue, and set in the oven one
minute to brown slightly.
A RESULT OF "THE UNExPEcTED."
There was nothing in the larder but
some cold dressed beefsteak ("mock
duck," we called it, with humble apol
ogies to the original,) and the remains
of a cheese custard. Consternation
reigned in the bosom of the family.
The unexpected had happened once
more. Visitors had arrived and had
evidently "come to stay." Something
had to be done, and I was chosen to
do it. "Eva," cried the mother, "you
are fond of 'making things out of
your head,' as you call it; here is a
brilliant opportunity to distinguish
yourself-grasp it!" "I would rather
grasp the wretched butcher who has
made us conspicuous through his ab
sence," was my indignant reply.
However, there was no help for it, so
I left the merry throng feeling that
my doom was sealed. I cut up the
meat and dressing with a sharp knife,
and this little word ringing in my
ears-"hash! hash! hash!" Now,
there is something about that same
word which takes away my appetite.
It is so prosaic-so commonplace.
It reminds one- irrepressibly of the
dreadful concoctions of a third-rate
boarding-house. My soul rises above
it. I have been told that my ideas
were larger than my purse. Be it so.
There is. true nobility in high ideas,
in great ideas. If it had to be hash
or an experiment I would choose the
last and lesser evil. Now for the ex
periment wvhich was called "A ragout
of mock duck with potato croquettes."
I poured a little hot water into a
saucepan and mixed in the cheese
custard with a dash of pepper and
salt. Next a couple of onions were
chopped, fried a crisp brown, and put
in. Some flour was sprinkled in the
frying-panr to brown, then sufficient
boiling water added to make a nice
gravy. When this and the finely cut
up (not chopped) meat had joined thre
other ingredients in the saucep:in, the
ragout was covered over and placedl
on the back of the stove to simmer.
The potatoes were boiledl earlier than
usual, and nicely mashed with butter,
milk, and seasoning. Taking a small
but long wine-glass, I filled it with
potato, turned out into a buttered
pan, and proceeded in the same man
ner till all the potato had changed in
to little white cone-shaped peaks.
these I put into the oven to browvn,
then placed carefully on a large meat
plate, pouring the ragout over all.
The efTect was pretty, and, in thus
daintily serving, I felt that the first
half of the battle was won. I hatd
made a pineapple trifle, a good cup)
of coff'ee, with some biscuits, which
were now ready, piping hot, and so
light they very nearly floated off their
pretty china plate, and behold a re
past of which not even that proverbial
grumbler, the dyspeptic, could disap
