INVESTIGATE THE CLUB ROLLS.
At the last Democratic County
Convention Dr. I. M. Woods a
delegate from New Zion made
an earnest effort for the appoint
ment of a committee on creden
tials to ascertain and report to
the convention the representa
tion each club was entitled to, in
order that justice might be done
all clubs. Dr. Woods' remarks
were treated with derision by
the controlling majority, but
nevertheless what he said to the
convention was the truth, and
he oniv asked that Clarendon's
Democracy be not converted into
an engine of fraud and oppres
sion, and we say, unless the
present system of obtaining a
large delegation based upon a
stuffed club roll is stopped, our
political affairs might as well be
turned over to a small coterie at
the county seat, and relieve the
the people of any part or parcel
in them. A continuation of
methods to get into convention
with so large a delegation from
the county seat as to control,
will become so distasteful that it
will be difficult to get desirable
men to accept public office, be
cause, a man with a proper re
gard for his manhood will not
care to become the beneficiary of
a clique, who by a padded club
roll have captured the party
machinery and thereby become
the political referees whereby
none can obtain position without
the approval of the clique. It
was to prevent such a condition
that Dr. Woods was striving for,
and when the country clubs
which send delegations based
upon an actual membership get
into convention, and find them
selves confronted with an over
whelming force from a club at
the county seat, they will real
ize the importance of Dr. Woods'
contention at the last conven
tion, especially when they see
no decrease in the delegations
from country clubs; the question
will occur to them, how is it that
-this club is entitled to such a
large represention? If it is not
based upon a genuine member
ship it is an unjust advantage
taken of the country clubs for
the purpose of obtaining control
of the party machinery. If the
club roll from which this great
big delegation was 'elected, con
tains names which should not be
there, either dead. moved away,
or belong to other clubs, it is a
cheat, and naturally it will be
thought there is a purpose in it.
The duty of the convention is
plain, and every fair minded
member of that body must real
ize the danger of permitting such
a condition to exist, The mat
ter resolves itself to whether- or
not the convention is willing to
surrender the rights of the peo
ple into the control of a few
power-seeking politicians, that
they might become a close cor
poration as it were. so that none
but their favorites can commune
at the political altar: place such
power in their hands and they
can say '"He who does our bid
ding shall have joy and place,
but he who will not shall be
dammed;" a dangerous power to
coilar, and we caution the peo
ple against it-it is all we can
do. Tne convention is all power
ful and can remedy this evil if
there is a sincere effort made,
but if the few who do want to
give justice permit themselves
hoodwinked by the sophistry of
professional politicians .then
there is no hope, and we caution
the convention to not permit
themselves misled by any one
seeking to prevent a cutting
down of delegations.
It is unfortuinate for a condi
*tion to exist which mzake people
feel that an unjust advantage is
being taken of them, and it was
just such a condition which be
gun the revolution of 1890. The
politicians through the apathy
of the people had become so em
boldened in their control that it
became burdensome, and it only
*needed a- leader to step to the
front. The leader came in the
person of 1B. R. Tillman and the
people followed him blindly be
cause they were dissatisfied with
the then conditions. Tillman
termed the politicians in control
"An Oligarchy," and he smash
ed it, and ,-their methods into
smithereens. That "-Oligarchy"
was a close corporation, made so
by a few politicians who secured
control by a manipulation of
clubs and conventions, and by it
-became the dictators of our polit
ical affairs. Again the people
have become apathetic, and
again have our political affairs
become stagnant, so. much so
that our methods are worse than
existed, when Tillman aroused
Endurance and patience are
characteristic of our people,
they bear ills a long time but
there comes a time when it
ceases. and then loud and earnest
is the demand for justice. There
is one party, and every white
sented voice in it, this is impos
sible where delegations to con
ventions are tolerated that are
larger than a genuine member
Clarendon has about 1650
white voters, and its convention
should not exceed 66 delegates,
but when a club sends 16 dele
gates based upon a membership
of 400, when it is a known fact,
and which an honest investiga
tion will prove, nearly one half
of that number of names are
members of other clubs, dead or
moved away, something is radi
cally wrong and shows up in
letters of light the truth of Dr.
Woods' assertion "Tbere is a
false representation in this con
vention." Shall this condition
continue? It is for the conven
tion to decide. There is nothing
now to distract the minds of the
people, which makes it an op
portune time for the convention
to render a valuable service. An
honest endeavor on the part of a
committee should at this coming
convention call for the club rolls
of the Farmers Platform, Man
ding, Clarendon, White and
Davis clubs, and others where
duplicates are probable, and
if it does not find enough
duplications to cut off a con
siderable number of delegates
we will treat the whole conven
tion. We specify these clubs,
not for the purpose of reflecting
upon its officers, -they are not
necessarily to blame; the system
is alone to blame, because it
gives a man the right to vote
where his name is enrolled with
out limitation as to the number
of enrollments he may choose to
make, and men without any
fraudulent intent who come to
town frequently for convenience,
have their names put on a town
club without taking the trouble
to have the erasure made at
their own clubs, then also 'we
know of the names of gentlemen
who live in Manning that are on
two clubs, and in the coming
convention there are delegates
whose names are upon one club
and they are sent as delegates
from another. These are facts
and we give them for the infor
mation of the convention in the
interest of justice. Oh! says a
designing politician 'this can be
remedied after the convention
adjourns by a committee." No it
cannot. The convention should
remedy the evil, and it is its duty I
to do so before a permanent or
ganization is completed, if you
wait until the large delegations
capture the party machinery,
and by this we mean the county
chairmanship, and executive
committee, you might as well
throw up your hands and tell
the control-seekers to help them
selves. By permitting false
representation in the convention
it amounts to appointing a Board
of Control, to manipulate and
barter away the rights and lib
erties of the people, a condition
calculated to breed corruption 1
