which set all the boys fermenting like
their own yt-ast, and sent theln all
head over heels Into the flour barrel,
and inaugurated a series of "larks"
that almost took the roof off the house,
but resulted in two loaves of broad
that a French bako- need not have dis
owned. Whereupon Miss Susanna
caine down handsomely with two silver
watches that were much appreciated,
and henceforth bad bread was a thing
unknown in that household. By devices
like these the ball was sot rolling, and
once set rolling rolled on with momen
tum of its own. In a few years the

pride, the standing joke of Winnvlllo.

under Mrs. Morgan's supervison, and
sewed, and pressed their own suits,
and worked their own button-holes,
like so many little tailors, having,
indeed taken lessons from Mrs.

by laughing at then, of courso. It
went on to wonder at them, and talk
about them to any extent. It ended
by admiring and respecting them.
M s. Morgan came to be regarded as
the wisest of women and mothers.
So many people complimented her
upon the good dispositions, reputa
tions, and characters of her "girls,"
and their various remarkable ach icvo
muents. that she in time quito lost
sight if liss Susanna's share in it
all. She formulated the system,
she lectured upon it, and mildly met
every d.ssontlent objection with a
" Look at my seven !" that was tin

Miss Susanna even, " Bring up your

One of her "girls " is a bank Preii

other is a successful mining engineer.

A NEW DEMOORATIO PARTY.
IT IS STARTED BY A FICW MEN
The Object. is to ilgit the Itegular
iDenocracy-A Squaro Issue Matde
vor the Future.
The Conservatives of Richland
County held a meeting on Saturday to
decide upon their course in reference
to entering the Democratic primary
and a granting a division with the Re
formers. Thirty-five or forty persons
were present., a number of whom were
delegates to the Democratic county
convention which met just afterwards,
und majority of whom approved the
plan of dividing with the Reformers.
No action was taken in the meeting
of the Conservatives, but it was an
nounced that a new Democratic party
would be organized in opposition to
the regular party. The proceedings
are looked upon as the beginning of
the now movement, and the following
report is copied from The State:
Col. F. W. McMaster was elected to
the chair, but declined. Mr. J. M.
flawlay was then elected as chairman.
Mr. 1'I. J. Watson was requested to act
Mr. W. H. Lyles was the first
speaker. ie had but very little to say.
HM said his mind had long been made
up that the bo-called Doemocracy was a
delusion and a snare. The dragging
over the State of men by armed men
and mending men to the penitentiary
without a trial was most undemocratic.
The primary scheme of the State comn
mittee was tyrannical. He believed
that the time had come for the men
who fult as ha~ did to get to work and
organIze and see what the people's
sentnclnt was. HeI was in favor or re
organizing the l)emocratic party of
thme State. (A pplau~se.)
The chairman said he wished all to
understand the object of the meeting.
T1he idlea wvas to organize a State D~em
ocratic Consaer'vativoe coinmmittee, and
the action of this body would govern
the action of the Conservative dele
gates in the subsequent convention.
Mr. Lyles called attention to the
dual attitude of many of the members
present, they having been elected
dlelegates to the other convention also.
lie thought they should not go ahead
on this line, but they should find out
who were willinug to reorganize the
C~ol. I". W. McMaister then took the
lloor, and said lhe agreed with the
general remarks of M r. Lyles, but was
forced to attend the county conven
tion. H~e would, however, add his
opinion to what Mr. Lyles had saidl.
" The dominant part of the D~emo
cratic party in South Carolina con
tains nIl classes of white ,mnen, known
as Tillmanites and Reformers. T1his
faction embraces all creeds and polItics,
from Popumismi upl to true Democracy,

"' ThIs faction for the last live years
has retarded the naturai progress and
prosperity of the peCople of t-he State

tacked corporations and turned away
and driven capital fromi the State ; re
p~ressed anld wripled our' p hoophate in
dustries ; has by force and perjury in
terfered with the elective franchine of
the citizen ; have fradulently mnanip~u
lated the ballot boxes, so as to give
the majority of votes in favor of a
constItutional cnion, contrary to
votes of the majority of voters; has
wilfully and corruptly defrauded Dr.
L'opoe, one of their own party, of sonie
thousand votes, because he had the
manhood to oppose the (dictation of the
lAting. Trhey have slandered, abused
and degraded some of our best judges
and placed in their stead avowed poli
tical partlsans. The executive depart
ment has been adlminlstered with re
morseless tyranny and laws and edicts
of judges dlisregarded. The will of
the people in Richland and Charleston
counties bave been set aside and friends
)f the Ring put in their places. They
have, by at harsh and cruel law, made
the State the big grog shop of the
sountry and appointed a multitude

sitizens until the blood of innocent
men has be en shed-all because a

the function of trade which belongs to

Mr. N. G. Gonzales thOn expressed
his viewg along the line purbued by
Mr. Lyles. There were. many who
were id favor of talking about throw
ing off the Irby yoke, but, they would
do nothing. Last fail tliero was a con
vention whioh decided to ropudlate the
Irby committee, but those there had
backed out when it came to the test.
In a short time a new Demoeratic
party would be formed in this State
on these principles:
Support of the established piuci plest
of the National Democratic party.
White supremacy by honest means.
No subordination to the Irby organ
ization, no entrance into its primaries
or conventions, but, on the contrary,
a denial of its right to to represent De
mocracy in this tate and constant and
indomitable resistance to its rule.
This party will boar the name
" DLemocratic." with such prefix as may
be desirable in case a more distinctive
name should be deemed necessary.
It will provide that only those who
will pledge themselves to its principleo
can become members.

thing today on account of the dual
position of many delegates. But he
would give the assurance that such a
party as le had outlined would be

on the same line with the preceding
speakers. They went into the county
convention, and were sent to the lFerty
convention. Having gone into that
convention we are bound and cannot.
do anything now. Mr. 3rennen moved
that they adjourn sine die.
Mr. Gonzales said that those who
went into the Forty convention did
not go into it on any understanding
that they should participate in the
Feorty primary. It was an ei.deavor to
get together flrst. He was invited
there not as a delegate, but as a news
paper editor. Mr. Sligh's resolution
did not bind them to go into the pri
mary. We are in no manner bound to
go Into the primary.
Mr. Lyles said that if tbings turned
out as they expected, a call would be
addressed to individuals, asking them
to express their sentiments as to the
new organization, and state in writing
their willingness to pledge themselves
to the principles of the new party.
The convention then adjourned sine

result was announced. " A formal dis
