The Convention Can Be Non-Partisan.
The constant appeals of the Con
servative press to keep its constitu
ency out of the Democratic primary
has had the effect of bringing Sen
ator Tillman out in an interview, in
which he charges the Conservatives
with not keeping faith with their
agreement, and that he is not dis
posed to trust them with an equal
division of delegates in the Consti
We have all along thought Senator
Tillman went too far in promising
an equal division of the delegates
because we did not believe that he
could deliver the goods, no matter
how much he tried or how sincere
his efforts in that direction would be;
but we do think the conference with
the Conservative leaders had the ef
fect of keeping down considerable
bitterness, and had not Judge Goff
come upon the scene, we are satis
fied more Conservatives would be
elected to the convention than will
be because, as soon as Judge Goff is
sued forth his edict declaring our
registration laws invalid and there
by forcing upon us a tremendous
negro vote, most of the Conserva
tive press, together with some of the
most trusted leaders of that faction,
ran upon the housetops and shouted
therefrom: "Keep out of the prim
aries; we are in a position now to
make demands and not to ask for
In other words, that press and those
leaders snapped their fingers in the
faces of the Reformers and in effect
gave them to understand the con
vention would be controlled by the
Conservatives and no Reformers
Senator Tillman knew this and,
being of flesh and blood the same as
his fellows, he feels that the magna
nimity displayed by him has not
been appreciated, and that he no
longer is bound by the agree
It will be remembered the editor
of THE TDIEs advocated in the
"Forty" conference an equitable
division of the delegates instead of
an equal division, which was the
underlying principle of the "Forty"
movement, and we still believe the
matter will finally settle down to
that sort of a division yet.
We personally see no objections to
a division because we are satisfied
there are Conservatives who can be
selected that will give satisfaction
to Reformers, and from the Reform
faction men can be selected who
will be satisfactory to the Conserv
ative side. There being no factional
issue at stake, we see no reason why
the people cannot select representa
tives from each side, and it would
be still better if the people will not
allow the matter of faction to figure
at all when they go to select their
delegates for the convention and
make their selections with a view to
getting the best qualified men for
This is what we would like to see,
and we believe the people prefer set
ting aside factional differences in this
matter, but when leaders of the Con
servative side were making all kinds
of unreasonable demands - backing
them with darkly hinted threats
to go the negro - the Reformers
w: m not at all pleased, and
whir the decision of Judge Goff
was reversed retaliation would have
set in were it not that the Re
formers are disposed to be generous
and give their friends of the Con
servative side representation in the
The Reformers do not hold the en
tire Conservative faction responsible
for the threats and demands of some,
because they know that there is a
class of Conservatives who deplored
the decision of Judge Goff as much
so as did the Reformers, and they
sincerely rejoiced when Attorney
General Barber and General Mc
Crady succeeded in lifting Goff's
oppressive heel from our necks. It
is this class of Conservatives the
Reformers would like to have repre
sentation, and it matters not what
committees or conferences or conven
tions may do, the people will settle
this matter to suit themselves, and
will make such selections as they see
Peace cannot be had by the major
ity giving way to an intolerant mi
nority, but peace can and will be
had by treating a reasoning mhinori
ity with fairness and justice. Sena
tor Tillman is opposed to trusting
those who felt secure with Goff's de
cree and in the bargain made with
the "Colored Ministerial Union," and
who scorned the concessions offered
by Reformers; and so are we.
There are plenty of men in the
Conservative faction who could not
be persuaded away from their white
brethren when a dark cloud was
hanging over them, but on the con
trary, these men, seeing their breth
ren in distress, brushed 'iside the
petty differences of the past and
came manfully forward to render as
sistance and to stand or fall by their
own race. Reformers, those are the
men you can trust; these are the
men that are Conservatives in fact,
not merely in name, and as for one,
we will support and advocate for the
people to support a division of the
delegates w'ith such men. The peo
ple do not care, nor should they,
in th is matter, which faction a man is
allied with; what they want to know
and should know, is the man aspiring
to a seat in the convention qualified
for the place, is he in sympathy with
the p~eople, is he in favor of making
white supremacy an assured fact,
will he see that no wvhite man is dis
franchised, will he work to better
our school facilities so the white chil
dren can receive their just portion of
the tax money ?
These and other things that the
they will consider, and not whether
the candidate voted for Tillman or
Earle, or Bratton, in 1890. An equal
division of delegates we believe to be
impracticable, except in counties
where the factions are nearly
equally divided; but where one fac
tion largely predominates, the pre
dominating faction will be sure to
have a majority, and if men are se
lected who will not let factional ad
herance influence their actions, it
will not matter which side has a ma
jority in the convention, especially
so when we take into consideration
the fact that for the convention no
factional issue is made, and the
things advocated by Reformers are
endorsed by the Conservatives who
want the heavy black cloud no w
hovering over us dispelled. We ad
mit there are some Conservatives who
prefer holding this cloud over us
because they hope to gain by it in
the future, but they compose a mi
nority of their faction and are a con
stant menace to the majority portion
of that faction.
Who Made the Break First 1
From an editorial commenting on
Senator Tillman's interview in last
Monday's News and Courier we clip
the following paragraph :
We shall take up the subject again, but
we wish to urge upon the Conservatives
to-day that there is not the least occasion
for excitement. The primary elections
will not be held for some weeks and the
election of delegates will not take place
until September. A good many Things
can happen in a very short time, and we
feel sure that something will happen of
very great interest to the Conservatives be
fore very long. The registration cases are
not ended yet, and this is a point that
Senator Tillman should not overlook in
his rejoicing at Judge Goff's discomftare.
Speaking of his decision in the Goff in
junction matter in Chicago on Friday l.st
Chief Justice Fuller said : "The merits of
the law were not at issue in the case."
We agree with our contemporary
that "a good many things can hap
pen in a very short time," and would
recall to its attention that some
"things" have already happened. A
conference of prominent gentlemen
was had and a certain unauthorized
agreement was entered into, but the
result of that conference, although
evidently intended to forestall an
other conference to be held later,
did some good toward keeping down
After both conferences had been
held and everybody seemed willing
to shake hands a man who, it is said,
commanded negro troops during the
war was brought from West Vir
ginia in the capacity of a United
States judge, and he endeavored to
place upon our necks the black heel
of ignorance and vice which, a few
years ago, brought so much misery
to our people.
When this judge delivered himself
of his decree a certain element of
the faction which the News and
Courier represents thought the op
portunity had arrived to dispossess
the Reformers of the possession of
the State government.
A "Colored Ministerial Union" was
taken into confidence and a bargain
made to control the Constitutiornal
convention, giving the friends of the
"Colored Ministerial Union" minority
representation for their support.
Conservative newspapers and prom
inent leaders came out boldly and
advised ignoring the Democratic
primary, and to put men forward in
the general election who would allow
minority representation to the
friends of the "Colored Ministerial
Union" and who would submit the
ork of the convention back, so that
the friends of the "Colored Minis
terial Union" could assure themselves
that the negro's franchise would be
Among the other "things" that
happened was an element of the Con
servative faction, feeling assured of
success with the backing of the "Col
ored Ministerial Union," became very
intolerant and told the Reformers
they would not be satisfied with an
equal division, but would take con
These things wvere not very palat
able to the Reformers and to the
peace-desiring Conservatives, but
nothing was said, as the hands of
the Reformers were in the lion's
mouth, and they concluded to leave
the animal alone until the time came
Another "thing" happened : A
young man from the State House,
whose name is Barber-whom the
epublicans and their new allies will
always remember-went before the
Chief Justice of the United States
and two other judges, and with a
ampson-like blow smashed Judge
Gff 's decision and the hopes of a
certain element of the Conservatives,
together with their friends - the
"Colored Ministerial Union" - into
ow our esteemed contemporary
in its disappointment comes to the
cnclusion that 'something will
happen of great interest to the Con
servatives before very long." Per
haps so. The "something" cani not
happen too soon; that is if that
something" means the repudiation
and cutting loose from that element
of the Conservative faction which
is a festering sore to its body politic.
We say the sooner it happens the
better, and w~e believe the Reformers
would receive with open arms all
oservatives having the courage of
thir convictions that will repudiate
and cut loose from that element that
wa illing to make coalitions with
the negro. The trouble with our
friend is that its plan to play the
"spider-and-fly" business might have
worked were it not that its jealous
friends gave the snap away.
The Legislative committee having
in charge the examination into the
management of the State dispensary
hav concluded their labors and
theirreport shows the institution to
be in excellent condition. It shows
the dispensary under Col. Mixson's
supervision to have been managed in
a thoroughly business-like mannier,
aiid that every dollar disbursed and
received was accounted for wvith ex
actness. Col. Mixson should feel
proud of this report, for it is seldom
that such an immense business makes
Programmes are out for the tweii
tv-fourth annual iueeting. of the
State Teachers' Association, wlhiil
will be held this year at Converse
College, Spartanhurg, leiiiniig
June 30 and continuing until .1 uly -1.
The programme is a varied and in
The News and Courier is disposed
to rob the Reformers of their glory
in the recent victory over Judge
Gioff and the hired enemies of the
State. In last Saturday'; issue it la
bored hard to prove the Victory was
not due to the administration. but it
was I that did it with my little edito
rial hatchet. A(ccording to this great
newspaper, Barber. Me(rady. and
Mower were "not in it," but it was
"1: I : Me: that told the Administra
tion what to dci.
Some people seem to think it terri
ble for Senator Tillman to ask the
people to see to it that "no inen bce
allowed to come to the Constitutional
convention, who, during the dark
days following Judge -off's decree.
showed any gratification or inade
any threats." We do not think it
was necessary for the Senator to
send out this warning: the people
had already made up their minds on
that score, and the determination to
keep such men out of that conven
tion is not confined to the Reform
faction eitheir. The conservative
element of what is called the Conser
vative faction is as much opposed to
men of the Columbia State and Spar
tanburg Herald school as is lie most
orthodox Reformer. The peace ele
ments of both factions realize that no
peace can be had unless the disturb
ing elements are sat down upon, and
the only way to effectually do this is
to gc into the primary and stand by
In response to the call of the chair
man of what is known as the "forty"
committee we went to Columbia last
week. The committee issued an ad
dress urging the people to put aside
factional differences and to fall in line
with those counties that have al
ready declared in favor of an equal
division of delegates to the Consti
tutional Convention. The address
is in another column and speaks for
itself, but as some of the Conserv
ative newspapers seemi to think the
"Forty" are holding themselves in
readiness to put forth a ticket in
the general election in case an equal
division will not be had, we will say
that such an idea is false. The
"Forty" have set out to bring about
peace in the State, and they have al
ready declared that all of their acts
will be in subordination to the
Democratic County and State Exee
ative Committees. Therefore this
talk of the extreme Conservatives
that the " Forty" wc~ill not go into
the prinmary is p)oppy-cock. The
'Forty" are not only going into the
primary, but are going to assist in
putting forward the best and wisest
tnen-irrespective of faction-inl that
primary, and then, when the result
is announced, they are going to work
to elect this ticket in the general
eection. If such were not the oh-.
jet of the "FPortv" wve would wash
our hands of it at onee.

GEORGIA UNIVERSITY ROW.
May Result in Chancellor iHcggs' Defeat
ATHENS, Ga., June IS.-There is a
fight on at the state university, and it
may result in the defeat of Chancellor
Boggs for re-election. For some time
there has been a feeling against Dr.
Boggs, who, it is claimed, is not practi
cal in his management. There have
been animosities between him and some
of the professors, and this has been ac
cen uated by trouble between the board
of visitors, who side with the chancel

made an attack on Dr. Riley's compe
tency, and the trustees are strong for

tlemen are prominent educators.
WHITE HOUSE AT GRAY GABLES.
rhe President and His Private Secretary
Take Up Their Summer Residence There
WASJINGTON, June 18. - President
Cleveland, accompanied by his private
secretary, Henry T. Thurber, (who has
leased a cottage near the president's
seaside residence for himself and fam
ily) and by Dr. Robert M. O'Reilly, of
the United States army, who has so
frequently acted as the confidential
travelling physician of the president,
left Washington yesterday to pass the
rest of the summer at Gray Gables,
Buzzard's Bay, Mass.
The White house carriage containing
the three gentlemen was driven from
the south side of the executive man-i
sion, which is rarely used for public
purposes, at about 6:30 a. in., and, pass
ing rapidly down unfrequented streets,1
reached the Pennsylvania railroad sta-1

President Cleveland and his compan-4
ions entered the station by that means,
passed through the open gateway,
manned only by waiting railroad offi
cials, and at once entered a very limit
ed special train which had been pre
pared for their accommodation. It
consisted of vice-President Thompson's
private ear, which was occupied by the
distinguished guests, and Senator Cal
in S. Brice's private car, which was
simply thrown in as ballast. Mr.
Brice's car was needed by the Ohio
senator in New York, and it was conse
quently attached next to the engine, to
take off some of the smoke and to give1
extra weight to the presidential train.

It is no longer a question whether business
