Manning's inventor Mr. Chas. r.

the model has the appearance of being
just what is claimed for it. If there is
nothing like i,tana it is a success,thcre
Is no doubt that Mr. Harvin has a fot
tune in his invention, because. with
the tendency to force railroads to have
better safety appliances on their ears
the railroad managements are looking
for the very latest and best there is to
be had: if Mr. Harvin has hit what the
railroads need, and it looks very much

I The Democratic convention assem
bled in the court house Monday in ac
- cordance with the constitution of the
party. and every club was represented.
The County Chairman A J. Richbourg
having left that morning to attend the
Confederato reunion at Jacksonville
Fia., was not present to call the body
to order, and the same was done by
State Executive Committeeman C. M.
Davis. Mr. Davis was made the tem
porary president and J. M. Windham
secretary of the convention; when the
temporary organization was completed
by enrolling the delegates from the
several clubs, by a unanimous vote the
temporary organization was made per
Aftev the permanent -rganizationwas at
fecte motion waslmiade; that a committee
on credentials be appointed. thisproposi
tion was opposed on the ground that it
could not be done, because the conven
tion had already accepted the member
ship of the convention when they made
the temporary organization permanent,
the only way it could be done would be
to recoisider the vote by which the
organization was made permanent; at
this suggestion the motion was made
to reconsider, and on a roll call of the
delegates the motion to reconsider was
It was fortunate that it was so, be
cause,had the motion to reconsiderpre
vailed,it would have brought on a long
and tedious session, with perhaps a
great deal of unpleasentness among
those interested, and possibly created a
community feeling that would have
been difficult to allay, even though the
vote was reconsidered in the matter of
the ditTerence between the Midway and
the Oakdale clubs it would not have af
fected the result in the convention,
but the trouble was th^re were other
clubs which would h.ve been ques
tioned, and there is no telling the ex
tent of the trouble had the door been
opened for it.
In the matter of the Midway club
and the Oakdale club, the question of
controversy was whether Oakdale and
Midway were entitled to the number
of delegates they came to the conven
tion with, and 1t grows out of the fol
lowing: Midway is the parent club, on
the day for the reorganization, after
having given notice in the usual way
and for the club to meet at the usual
time and place its proceeded to reor
ganize and elect its delegates on a
basis of its roll; after the meeting ad
journed the President of the club re
ceived a card from the President of
Oakdale club informing him that he
had organized a new club, but there
was nothing in this notice indicating
what members of the old Midway club
should be stricken from its roll, there
fore the President of Midway took the
position, first, the notice came to him
after his club had acted, and he had no
authority to reduce his delegation,
second, there was nothing in the notice
he received which would have author
ized him to remove names from his
The convention decided to seat al!
delegates that presented themsel ves.
thus avoiding possible friction. There
was some trouble in connection with the
reorganization,at Turbeville in which it
claimed that club did not hold its meet
ing at the usual hour, but met consid
erably earlier, and when the members
arrived they were informed the club
had already met and elected its dele
gates, this irritated many of those who
felt that a snap judgment had been
taken, and they went and organized a
new club made up of the membership
of Douglas, elected officers and a dele
gation, then too, there was murmuring
about Alcolu; it was stated that this
club did not reorganize on Saturday as
the constitution requires, but on the
night before. But all of this trouble
was avoided by the convention not per
mitting itself to haye a patidora's box
opened on it. Had every matter of
protest or contest been considered by
the convention it would not have
affected the result so far as the election
of delegates is concerned.
Before the delegates were elected
Hon. C. M. Davis was unanimously re
elected a member of the State Execu
tive Committee, this election showed
the magnanimous spirit of the major
ity, in, that although they were fully
aware of the status of the convention
and earnestly urged another to permit
his name to be presented, the compli
ment was declined on the ground that
if Mr. Davis desired re-election he
should have it, as he was in full sym
pathy with the movement to oppose
any rules which will have the effect of
depriving or putting white men to ex
traordinary trouble to vote in the
Another indication of friendliness
was manifested when the convention
on motion of one who was considered
a prominent leader for the majority
placed in nomination S. Oliver O'Bryan
Esq., for County Chairman, but to the
surprise of the majority tbe oppoition
did not accept the tender of the olive
branch and placed in nomination Hon.
A. C. Bradbam, we are told that Mr.
Bradham was not consulted nor did he
give his consent to have his name pre
sented, Mr. O' Bryan was elected by a
nice majority. Mr. Jos. E. Davis
was also put in nomination, but he re
quested that his natme be withdrawn.
and was not considered a candidate.
When the vote was announced, the
convention made the election of Mr.
O'Bryan unanimous on motion of a
member pf the Summerton delegation.
The following preamble and resolu
tions were adopted unanimously by
the convention after having been pre
sented and read by Louis Appelt the
The Democrats of Clarendon County
in convention assembled place them
selves on record as being opposed to
any rule or regulation which will have
the effect of discouraging, depriving,
or inconveniencing any white man who
is a citizen of this state from partici
pating in the primary elections of the
Demortic party. We believe it is for
the best interests of the state and wel
fare of the par ty that bitterness shall
cease and for our people to continue
united; all differences whether the
same be of measures or men adjusted
by submission to the express will of the
majority at the ballot box, without de
priving any white citizen of nis privi
ledge as a voter:
Resolved:- That It is the sense of
this convention; a rule should be adopt
ed requiring those entitled to partici
pate in the primnary to be enrolled in
the township in which they reside or
the nearest club to their residence, and
the name of the voter shall only be en
rolled upon one club roll. In cities
that are divided into wards the name
of the voter shall only be enrolled in
the ward where the voter has his place
of residence, and only on one club
Resolved: That the basis of repre
sentation to future county conventions
shall be one for every twenty-five votes
cast at the next preceding primary
election, instead of the present scheme
of one for every twenty-five on the club
Resolved: That we are opposed to
the proposition to abolish the state
campaign meetings, because, we think
the people should have an opportunmty
of seeing and hearing those who are
seeking high office at the hands of the
voters. To abolish these meetings
would in our opinion be destroying one
of the fundamental principles of dem
ocracy, and finally result in bringing
-on a demand for the convention and
Resolved: That we note with pleas
ure the effort of the Representative of
the First Congressional District of
South Carolina to secure legisration by
Congress, "for the establishment of a
drainage fund to reclaim wet, over
flowed, and swamp lands in the United
States, in promotion of the general
welfare to prevent the dissemination of
SImalaria and other diseases among the
Iseveral States" and that we wish him
such legislation will greatly benefi
this State in health, and in the devel
opment of the vast acreage of wast
Resolved: That it is with much prid(
we endorse the administration of Pres.
ident Woodrow Wilson, having ful
faith and confidence in his wisdom, pa
triotism and statesmanship.
Two sets of tickets were presented
for delegates to the State conventicu
which meets in Columbia on the 20th
of this month. The vote was by ballot
which took some time as the rule adopt
ed the delegates could only vote as
their names were called, but it was the
best and surest way to prevent con
fusion, and to avoid any possible voting
by non-members of the- convention.
The following are the tickets and the
vote each delegate received:
E. 11. Kennedy 80 0. C. Scarborrough 62
Louis Appelt & Jos. E. DavLs 61
E. B. Gamble 81 D. L. Green 63
L. S. Barwick 82 H. B. Richardson 62
J. M. Windham 80 J. M. Montgomery 62
W. E. Gibbons 80 Jas. F. Dickson 6
J. M. Davis 81 F. P. Burgess 64
R. H. Davis 81 L. M. Jones 63
The president declared the result and
the delegates receiving the majority
vote will represent Clarendon in the
State convention. We will state here,
if it should so happen that if any of the
elected delegates will be prevented
from going to Columbia they will make
the same known either to The Times
editor Messrs. E. B. Gamble or J. M.
Windham. so arrangements may be
made to fill the vacancy.
Just prior to adjournment a motion
was made that the elected delegates be
uninstructed, but the position was
taken that the convention had already
expressed itself without a dissenting
voice when it adopted the.resolutions,
to turn back and undo by indirection
what it did directly, would be childish;
the resolutions do not do more than let
the delegates know the sentiment of
the convention, and they, as honorable
men will be guided by them absolutely,
even though the language in the reso
lution does not say "pledge"
The convention was one of the most
harmonious we have attended in years,
everybody was in fine humor, those
who were successful, naturally felt el
ated but if their was any soreness with
the opposition it was confned to a very
few. Every consideration was shown
the minority. There was.no attempt to
run rough shod, what was done was
>pen and above board, each side knew
the other side would have a tick
et, and both sides acted accordingly.
In this connection we will say that
while all of the delegates have hereto
ore voted for Governor Blease, they
were not elected as partizans, because
the only issue presented was the matter
>f restricting the primary. and the
bolishing the county-to-cc-:nty canvas.
here was no need for an issue between
Blease and Smith, or for any of the
ndidates for Governor, that matter
bad no place in this convention, and
hose who were working among the
Jelegates on those lines did not under
tand the real questions involyed.
As we have time and again stated in
Oese columns, conventions do not al
ways represent the true sentiment of a
Suntv, this was demonstrated two
rears ago when the Jones faction car
-ied the convention by storm; when the
writer was defeated as a delegate, it
was featured in the newspapers, but
what did it amount to any more than to
rive some opponents of the writer a
momentary exultation, but when their
Iream was over, and they awoke to a
-ealization of what happened to them.

L Happy Social Event Made Happier Still.
Miss Essie Vinson was hostess yes
terday afternoon at one of the most en
jovable social functions that has ever
taken place in Tarpon springs.
Invitations had been issued to a liner
shower complimontary to Miss Iva Al
baugh who will be married at an early
date to Mr. Harold Lenfesty, of Tam
The guests were cordially received
by Miss Vinson, assisted by Miss Ether
May Hope, Mrs. Levin Vinson and
When all the guests had arrived, the
company was favored with a charming
vocal solo, beautifully rendered by Mrs
E. L. Zimmerman, who responded to
encore with another appreciated solo.
This was followed by an exqusitely
rendered vocal solo by Miss Mary
Wolf, who also gracefully responded to
encore by singing another selection.
Heart-shaped cards were then dis
tributed among the guests, each of
whom was requested to write a few
words of advice to the bride-elect.
These cards were collected and then
distributed for reading by others than
those who wrote them and created
much merriment by their witty and
apropos suggestions. *
The company was then invited into
the dining room where punch was serv
ed, Mrs. King presiding at the punch
Wbile the punch was being served
some one was busy in the parlor, as
upon returning, the guests discovered
a large umbrella attached to the ceil
ing. This was formed of pink and
white crepe paper and was an exquis
itely beautiful creation. Mrs. Levin
Vinson lowered the umbrella and it
was found to be filled with beautiful
gifts, which were passed on to Miss
Following the distribution of the
gifts, ice cream and wafers were serv
ed in the parlor and while they were
being consumed came the surprise of
the occasion. Little Melissa Vinson
entered the room personating Cupid,
with bow and arrow and carryin a
diminutive post bag at her side. From
this were taken envelopes which were
distributed to the guests. In each~was
found a card, heart-shaped, and on
which was written just one word.
The guests read their cards aloud in
turn, and the complete message
brought by the dear little Cupid read:
"Mr. and Mrs. Leven Vinson announced
the engagement of their daughter,
Essie. to Mr. Arthur Jones "
Congratulations and expression of all
good wishes followed and the delight
ful entertainment was ended.
All of Tarpon Springs will feel an
interest in the intelligence of this en
gagement. Miss Vinson is one of Tar
ron Springs loveliest and most popU
lar young ladies, while Mr. Jones is
held in high esteem in both business
and social circles.
The announcement of this engage
ment made at an entertainment in hon
or of another of Tarpon Springs' popu
lar brides-elect made the entertain
ment of double interest and pleasure to
the friends of both who were present,
and the rose-colored decorations, with
the beautiful flowers under the soft
light from pink electric bulbs made a
picture of loveliness not soon to be for
