They were talking about the
beef, which was very tough. Some
one suggested that it was from an
old cow. "It seems strange," said
Mrs. G., "but the tenderest beef I
ever saw was from a cow 16 or 17
years old." "That's easily . ex

COLUMBIA, September 25.-Spe
cial: The Convention of Demo
crats that meet here on the 17th
and adjourned subject to the call
of the Convention was called to
re-assemble here to-night at 8
o'clock. At midnight, when this
preliminary dispatch is written,
the caucus preliminary to the Con
vention is still in session. At 5
o'clock, when the caucus met, in
structions were given, in compli
ance with the resolution of the ex
ecutive committee, that no one
excepting duly elected or appoint
ed delegates be admitted. The
newspaper men who applied or
presented themselves for adinis
sion were not admitted.
Mr. Fishburne, of the Charles
ton delegation, moved to admit
the newspaper men upon the same
condition as last time and explain
ed that those papers that were op
posed to nominations would no
doubt be all right should nomnina
tioas be made, but objection was
riised and the newspaper men not
deleketes were left out in the cold.
The New,8 and Courier correspond
ent receivbd instructions to cover
the caucus Na. fully as possible and
has given the facts condensed and
as best obtainable i a legitimate
way, notwithstanding guArds, etc.
A SMALLER ASSEMBLAGE THAN THE
LAST.
The caucus when it assembled
did not have over 164 delegates
present. At the last Convention
224 delegates voted on the question t
of making nominations. A num
ber of additional delegates arrived
on the night trains, but the Con
vention was not as large as on the
17th. So far as can be understood
Sumter, Kershaw and Marlboro
had no representatives in the hall.
Col. Graham and Mr. Altamont
Moses, of Sumter, did missionary
work against nominations. When
the caucus met the delegates were
admitted by rolls.
GEN IIAGOOD IN COMMAND.
Gen. Johnson Hagood took I
charge of the convention. It was
soon developed that the conven- <
venition was excendingly delibera-t
tive. It did not get to work un-i
til (6 o'clock, when the secrereali- 1~
ties began getting up the roll of
delegates in attendance. About
the-flrst resolution introduced, so c
far as can be heard on the outside, 1:
was one by Editor Williams, who
proposed that the executive coin- v
mittee be empowered to name a t
candlidate for Governor two weeks v
in advance of the election. His r
resolution did not favor anything v
other than the nomination of a r
Governor. The resolution was vo- e
ted dowvn upon a division, and 1:
Mr. Williams withdrewv his rosa- e
lutions. After discussing the sit- -u
uation briefly at 7 o'clock the cau
cus took recess to 8 o'clock with- (
out having done a thuing. The a
dlelegates were worried about the a
length of the session.
THiE NIGTS sEssI5ON wIThI LOsED (
DOORS.
At the niight session the caucus t
still had its doors closed and uponi
motion the diffeurent delegations
weore called uponu to maike rep~orts
as to the p)ossibilities of a Statie
ticket in their counties favored
nominations or niot. There wvere
inl maniy instances reports from a
county each of them (differing as
to the secntiment of the county.
COUNTY DEL.EGATIONs D)IVIDED.
For instance from Abbeville
Mr. Graydon wan tedl nonmiinationis
but did not think it could carry
the couuty, Mr. McGowan opposed0(
nominations andI alid not think
the ticket would be able to carry
this county. Barn well 's deleoga
tion was (divided. Beauford
Senator Verdier wanted nomina
tions, so 'tis saidl, and thought the4
county could be carried. M r. Ful-.
1er on the other hand thought it
just as likely that the county
could not be carried for another
State ticket. Trho report from
)harleston was specially interest
ng. Gen. Mcrady and the rest
)f delegates except Mr. Fishburno
Yore earnestly opposed to nomina
ills.
iI'CRADY SPEAKS FOR FOR CHARLES
TON.
Gon. McCrady explainod what he
lbought to be tho attitude of the
)eople of Charleston, and that the
wo Senators, the mnimbers of the
Rlouse and many others regarded
bhemnselves a pledged to the regu
Lar nominees already in the fiold,
md that a full voto could not be
)rought out for a new State ticket..
SIr. Fishburne presented the other
uide of the picture and thought a
itrong vote would rally to another
icket. So it went and the coun
ies kept up their reports, varying
ore and there. May be at another
lime something will be said about
Jhese reports.
The summary of the reports
vary. One of the most careful
lelegates told me that eight coun
ies reported favorable to nomina
ions, fourteen against nomina
ions, eight doubtful and four
ounties not reporting or present.
Unother report vas Ihat seventeei
ounties were in favor of making
kominations of a full ticket.
,LL CoUNTIEs REPORT ANn TALK nIE

At 9. 25 the reports from the
arious counties were till in - and
hen began a debato ahout how
C let each of the dolegates talk.
L motion to limit the debate to
Dur hoars and to allow every dele
ate present tenminutes time to
obate the advisabilit.y of making

THE QUESTION OF NoMINATIONS.
Mr. Saunders, of the Spartan
airy delegation brought things to
focus by makin a AIr on that
Lolinfatiols should not be m(ade
t this time. Then the oratorical
iyrotochnics began, and at 12.40
he debate is still in progress.
THE SPEAKERS FOR ANn AGAINS1.
From what can be heard- the
?rincipalidebaters against nom ina.

t was fruitless.
HE cAUcUS DEcLARlEs FORl NOMINA

At twenty minutes t~o 2 the can

*y a majority of 83.
A delegate, from the low country
rho has just left the hall, says
hant tihe vote was 90 to 128 in fa
or of nominations. The infor-.
iation is that the deldegations are
ory much dividecd. Had Marlb~o

Later delegates coming from tho
lonvontion give dii fferentI results
a to the voto on the question, "Re

nake nominations at this time."
)ie delegato said it was 123 to 90,
nother that it was 90 to 123, hut
he majority was given at '28 or 33.
As soon as the vote was an

Ho0w THE COUNTIES STOOD.
It is now semi-officially announ
ed that eighteen counties report
d that they could not carry their
~ounties, thirteen that they could
~arry their counties and four were
~oported as doubtful. It natural
Ly depends upon which of the
sounties are included in each
of the totals to form any iea ol
the probability of carrying the
election in November.
