WEDNESDAY, NOV. 13th, 1895.
55,000 votes for governor in the re
cent election in Ohio.
It is predicted that there will not
be another Democratic National Ad
ministration in the next twenty years.
Congressman John L. McLaurin
delivered an address to the Confeder
ate Survivors in Horry county to-day.
The attendance was immense and the
brilliant young representative was
greeted with great enthusiam. We
will endeavor to publishihis eloquent
address next week.

There will be another effort made
in the Convention to increase the pay
of its members, but we hope it will
fail as it should. Every member of
that body was elected with his eyes
wide open; the work was accepted at
two dolars per day and it should re
main so. To now increase the per
diem would be taking undue advant
age of the people and they will not
submit meekly either. We honestly
think the legislature should have
fixed the per diem at more than two
dollars per day, but they saw fit
to make it two dollars and the mem
bers accepted on tnat basis. If they
have made a bad bargain they must
stand to lit. They certainly have no
moral right to make an increase o
their pay. f
Now that the convention is through
with the suffrage ordinance the edu
cational ordinan will be the next
problem for the members to solve.
The people are anxiouslyflooking Ito
the Convention for an improvment in
the'present school system;th~ey want to
get value for their money. Will the
Convention give it to them? The
white people pay nine-tenths of the
school tax and we think the oppor
tunity is at hand to give them what
they deserve. Some of our public
thinkers are advocating the abolish
ment of the South.Carolina College and
the Citadel and take the money which
is being appropriated for those in
stitutions and put it to the common
schools; tbeu there are some who
want the constitutional tax eliminat
ed upon the ground that it is unfair
. for a citizen to be taxed for the edu
cation of another (citizen's children.
'We do not agree with either of these
Spropositions; for the reason, that it
would be a step backwards to tear
down any educational institution;
" rather let us have more and them
better [equipped, then our oppo
sition to eliminating Ethe2constitil
tional tax is, that it would be exceed
ingly dangerous to leave the school
r tax to ;the whims, of a legislature.

the people are craving and should
have; it is what they are being taxed
for. If enough money cannot be
raised to run the colleges and the
free schools, one or the other must
shut up andiinthatievent the people
would prefer every college in the
State closed hard and fast rather
than have the free schools interfered
The Constitutional Convention has
~'fnished its work on the suffrage mat
trand in our judgment they could
not have done better under existing
*conditions. We see no reason why
any white man should be disfran
chised by it, and we think Senator
Irby was either unnecessarily alarm
ed inhis zeal to be "the poor man's
friend,"or that he was making his
fight against the suffrage plan for
political buncombe. He certainly
has not helped himself to any great
extent and has very probably wrap-.
ped about him a shroud in which he
will be politically buried. The day
has come when a man cannot
proclaim from the housetops that he
has "drawn his sword and thrown the
sicahbard away" unless he shows up
some good sword exercise. This we
do not think the distinguised Sena
tor has done; he simply said with a
great big noise that he was against
the sufrage plan of the committee,
and naturally the people expected,
that the time had arrived for Irby to
display his statesmanship; they ex
pected him to step forward with a
plan which would show him to be a
wise man and truly "the poor man's
-friend',, but what did he do? He
flikered out like a candle when a drop
of water strikes the flame-it was a
siz,siz,siz, and darkness came upon
the scene and over Irby's political
future like apall. When aman hon
ored aslrby has been announces his
opposition to such an important mat
te- the suffage plan, and goes so
far in his opposition to charge the
aathors of the plan with ingratitude
and treachery he must first prepare a
better plan; if he had a better plan
and it was defeated in the Conven
tion, he then could come before
the people for an endorsement, but
without having offered anything ex
cept his bare announcement that he
was "against it," leaves him with
nothing for the people to endorse. We
had expected more of the distinguish
ed gentleman, for he is a magnificent
campaign leader. He has led the
the Reform cause on to victory time
and again, and to his credit be it said
that his loyalty to the Democracy
the and Reform cause has never been
questioned. As a politician he ex
hibited brilliancy and dash, and his
reputation went up like a rocket and
illuminated the political sky, but as a
deep thinker on questions of public
policy and statesmanship he has
came down with a dull thud.

WORK OP TE CONVENTION.
Summary of Its Proceedings at the
Close of Last Week.
CoLUMXA, Nov. 9th, 1895.
The Convention finished up the sufirage
article last night. When it came up on its
third reading Senator Tillman moved to
amend section 1 by adding the following:
"Each of the two political parties casting
the highest number of votes at the preced
ing election shall have representation on
the board of managers of eleetion at each
polling precinct and on the board of county
canvassers in each county."
Senator Tillman supported the amend
ment in a strong speech.
Several othet speeches were made for
and against the amendment.
Mr. Bradham of the suffrage committee,
wanted the amendment adopted because it
was right, that is all. The people of South
Carolina do not want and do not need any
thing that looks like fraud. We cannot af
ford to do anything but what is fair. He
expected the day would be here when the
white people will divide and he was not
afraid of it. He was astonished to hear so
much about fair elections. The time has
cO e,ith'this plan to let every registered
r cast his ballot and have it counted.
After further debate the amendment was
rejected-yeas 51, nays 76. Those whc
voted for this amendment were:
Anderson, Barker, Bates. Bellinger, Ber.
ry, Bradham, T. W. Brice, Bryan, Cantey,
Dudley. Farrow, Fraser, Gage, Garris, J.
L. Glenn, Harris, Haynsworth, D. S. Hen

Kennedy, Klugh, Lee, McGowan, Miller,
Mitchell, Mower, Oliver, Otts, Patterson,
Patton, Peake, Prince, Ragsdale, Read,
Reed, Rowland, Sheppard, Sloan, R. F
Smith, Stribblin Sullivan, B. B. Tillman,
G. D. Tillman, merman, Von Kolnitz;
Wells, A. H. White, S. E. White, Wigg.
The suffrage article was then adopted
as a whole-yeas 78, nays 41.
This morning's session was taken up in
discussing two matters-the section provid
ing for codification of the laws, and the one
providing special punishment for sheriff
from whom prisoners shall be taken out
The section as to codifying was at last
fixed so as to require annual revisions, and
a codification every ten years. The com
missioner is to receive an annual salary not

prisoners may be lynched caused a long
discussion, wnich was not ended when the

Mr. Bellinger, the author of the section
made a strong speech in its favor. There
were several other speeches on each side.
Capt. Braham said that he felt that he
ought to express himself ass shaeri. Ho
did not think this ought to be struck out

As we passed Foreston on our return from
Charleston last Saturday morning we saw a
man standing in a store door with one of
the most woe-begone countenances we have
ever beheld, and it was some little time be
fore we could recognize the face; its down
cast appearance had almost entirely wiped
out the familiar lines. Had that man just
received a telegram from Now York to
"please deposit two hundred dollars, Janu
ary 8.24" after he had invested the day be
fore at 8.75, we might have understood the
cause of his apparent melancholy. This
man is a personal friend and naturally
we were worried about him; at the first op
portunity to see some one from Foreston
we inquired for news from that quarter.
It came: it was that Mr. W. T. P. Sprott
became the "daddy of another -bounmg
