has been very much retarded the last ten

on full time. It is the most complete ar

cotton in the hopper 'from the wagon; the
elevator takes it up to the gins; you drive
under the seed box, and your seed is all

packed and delivered in your wagon: you
don't see your cotton after it leaves your

PIcnics, Politics, and Nonsense.
Enrron MAssISG Toxs:-Some time ago
Mr. "One Eye," or General Speaker, in giv
ing an account of "Picnic and Politics in
Sandy Grove," says, giving vent to his feel.
ings, he started for the picnic at Mr. J. J.
MleFaddin's. After an acute observation he
found that some of the "outs" were there.
No doubt Mr. "One Eye" felt that he was
out of his pew, for he was among men that
knew him too well to see with both eyes,
and fortunate for him he only had one eye, or
he could have seen politics and picnics ina
Idifferent light, but we excuse him as he only
can see one side.
Mr. "One Eye" saw somebody from
neighboring county with the wisdom o:
Solomon, but Clarendon ought to see her
aspirant and "General Speaker" displaying
his wisdom and compare him with the "long
nose" man and you would conclude that
greater than Solomon was there. Acute ob
server has found the record of '62 and '63 o:
the "long nose" man and says his nerve
won't do now. WVell those who know hin
best will admit that he must have "nerve'
or he could never be farmer, mechanic, or
ganizer, general speaker, '.11 with "one eye.'
Now if you don't believe "One Eye" has
nerve just let him entertain you one night
at his home and see if he has not nervE
enough for anything.
IIf Mr. "One Eye" has not found the pres
ident of Sandy Grove club, he can find hin
by searching the records of the outs. We
hpthtater the convention of the 29t1
inst. "One Eye" will be honored with
permanent occupation in his native ele
ment. L.. i'.

WHEREAS, we the Trinity Alliance believe
that the recent sudden decline in the price

keep the price down until the poor farimers
have been forced to sell their cotton crops at
disastrous prices to them; therefore be it
Resolved, That we the Trinity Alliance
appeal to our managers in authority to de
vise some plan by which the farmers can
meet their obligations, upon deposit of their

the present ruinous prices.

peal to the members of our order through
out the cotton States to hold their cotton
crop as long as possible until the prices are
remunerative to the farmers.

Republican County Convention.
The Republicans of this county met in
the court house last Saturday, and were
called to order by their county chairman,
Syfax Milton. He was also made perma
nent president and Julius DuRant was
While the committee on credentials were
at work examining the credentials of the
delegates the chairman invited speeches
from the delegates. Revs. McDutlie and Tor
rence made speeches, and both were very
conservative in tone and manner.
The committee having finished their
work reported a certain delegate to be strick
en from the list of the Packsville delegation
and in his stead the name of some one else
to be placed, on the ground that this dele
gate took part in the election of delegates at
the Manning precinct election. The report
Chairman Milton then announced that an
election was in order for a county chairman
to serve for the next two years, and re(uest
ed Gilbert Henry to take the chair, after
which he retired from the hall. Rev. A. E.
Torrence nominated Syfax Milton with a
very sensible and complimentary speech,
which was seconded by 1. A. Stewart. Lee
David placed in nomination Gilbert Henry,
but Henry asked David to withdraw the
nomination, as he was not a candidate for
the position. David declining to withdraw
the name an election was entered into, re
sulting almost unanimously in favor of
Milton. The chair appointed a committee
of two to wait upon the county chairman
elect and notify him of his election.
The newly made county chairman was
escorted to the chair, and in accepting male
a long speech, taking to task some of the
members of the convention who were op

Edmund Deas, the chronic candidate for
G. 0. P. congressional honors, was called
upon for a speech, and in response to the
invitation he arraigned both factions of the
Democratic party. He did not favor putting
a ticket in the held, but predicted that tLw
time was not far off when they would be
able to elect a ticket. He said that the nig
ger had had his day, the aristocrat his, and
now the poor buckra was going to have his,
although Mr. Tillman, who was their leader,
had sprung from the best stock of England,
yet now claiming to be one of the common
It was then announced that an election
would take place for State and congression
al delegates, wyhen one of the members de
manded that the call from the State conven
for this election be read. Chairman Milton
stated that he was not in possession of the
call and had never seen it, whereupon a
charge was made accusing the postmaster at
this place with intercepting the call. This
brought about such confusion that the c'n
vention was unable to proceed, and they
took a recess until Monday amorninig.
On Monday when the convention re-c-on
vened R. A. Stewart the party charge-d with
intercepting the letter containing the call
from the State chairman obtained the floor
on a question of privilege and in an emo
tional theatrical manner proceeded to ex
plain his connection with the call. He was
frequently interrupted by delegates asking
"de priviledge ob askin' de gemmen one
The interrogations were very ludicrous
and annoying, and at times pandemonium
reigned, however Stewvart showed that thc
charge against him was not only nntrue but
that it emanated fronm jealous piolitical en
Delegates to the State and congressional
conventions were then elected. T1he State
delegates are Syfax Milton, Madison Cantey,
and Gilbert Henry. The congressional del
egates are Rev. W. W. McDuflie, Lee Davi,
A. S. Boston, and William Dozier. After
the election of delegates a resolution was of
fered to endorse Webster for State chairman.
This brought about a great many speeches,
the principal orators being R. A. Stew-art,
Rev. A. E. Torrence, and Julius Duliant.
Stewart made an eloquent appeal to the
convention against the e-ndorsement of
Webster and advocated sentding the dele
gates to the convention uninstructed. His
speech had the desired effect and the con
vention by a large vote refused to endorse
A collection was then taken up to pay the

rtsoiution adopted by said coninittee:
1's 1cd. Thiat Capt. P. P. Gaillard be re
quested and directed to call upon all the
iifnimbers of thi executive contunittee exist
ing prior to Sept. S, iS90, of tile Deiocratic

Sutter C. 11. Sept. 19, at 12 o',ock, noon,
forii tlie purpose of reorganizing thle Demo
eratic party of Sumiter county, inl accordance
with tire provisions of then Stat' constitution
adopted by the September convention of
iv order of Executive Committee.
JonN L MI. Inny, Chmn.
G. DUNN. r.iNGER, Sec.
In answer to the question what ie would
do in regard to it, lie said that he was no
longer chairman of the county execntive
committee; that Dr. John S. lughson had
been elected to that position by the conven
tion held here on Sept. 8, arid that he had
no right whatever to usurp Dr. HugIhson's
authority in calling together the committee.
He will have nothing to do with it.
In a conversation - with Col. Earle this
morning lie gave the following to your cor
respondent as his view of the action of the
State conve.'ntion held in Columbia on the
10th inst. In his own la.nguage lie said:
"I do not regard the State convention as
legal because a majority of the nieubers
excluded from the dieliberations of that
body, for io just cause, the delegation from
Sumter. It is miy opinion that the Democ
racy of the State has no right to act so as to
bind the body when they completely ignored
the Democrats of a county. Such revolu
tionary action in my jndgment releases any
Democrat who did not take part in the pro
ceedings from any obligation to support the
ticket set up by them. While this is true,
I will not favor any movement looking to the
defeat of the ticket by the aid of the negro
vote. White supremacy imust be sustained,
even if we sufler wrong at the hands of a
port'on of the Democracy."
"In reference to county aftfLirs, the county
has already been regularly organized, and
if re-organization be attempted by Col. Irby, I
it will probably result in the placing of two
tickets in the field, and the Antis will not
be responsible for it."-- Cialeston WOrld.
SUMTER, Sept. 13. --The action of the State
convention in refusing to seat the delegates
from this county has been the cause of much
comment and criticisn here. It looks like I
the convention saw that it could not seat the t
Tilhuan delegation and, therefore, would
not seat the Straigltouts.
Our county polities remain in statu quo.
If the State executive committee shoutld re
fuse to recognize the regular executive com- I
nitttee of this county, of' winch Dr. John S.
Ilugh-;on is chairman, there may be some
trouble. It is hoped that the issue will not
be forced. The people are beginning to I
turn their attention to the primary which is
to come off on the 25th inst. As yet candi
dates are not very numerous. Messrs. Al
tamont 'Moses and A. K. Sanders are candi
dates for re-election to the Legislature, and
Col. 11. E. L. Peebles, who was a member of
the House 1882 3 is also a candidate. The
Hon. Marion Moise is a candidate for-re
election to the Senate, and is opposed by
Col. W. D. Scarborough, who is a prominent
So far no Tillman candidates have been
publicly announced, although the air is full
of rumors concerning them. This matter
will probably be decided by them when
their convention reassembles on the 20th
inst. Of course, it is not known yet wvheth
er the Tillmanites will participate ill the
primary that has been ordered or not, as
they ignored the county convention last
Mo0nday.--Nes .l i aw
Sr'Mmn, Sep. 13. - Thet Tillmanite county
executive commnittee met to-day to decide
what action it wouldt take in regard to the
prinry election ordered biy the Straightout
executive comimittee for Sep.. 25. The de
cision arrived at was that it would have
nothing whatever to do with the primary,
since according to its way of thinking, and
according to the decision of the comnmittee
on c'redlentials of' the State convention, both
the conventions held in Sumter on Sep. b
were illegal and unconstitutional, anid the
action of the executive committee elected by
either convention was not binding on the
Democrats ot' the cofultv. 'The Tillinanites
appointed on the hoards of matnagers for
the several election precincts will not serve.
Foi' the rest they will meet, as a caucus, on
Saturday, Sep. 20, as agreed upon at their
convention on tire 8th, and will then decide
what future course to p~ursue. This will
