THE CONVENTIONS WORK.
Well and Quickly done-Uninstruct.
ed Delegates sent to Chlctgo-The
old State Ticket Renominated-Full
list of Electors and Delegates..
CoLUMBIA, S. C., June 26.-The
State Democraite ' Convention
which met here to-day proved to
be one of the most remarkable po
litical assemblages that South
Carolina has ever seen. It accom
lished more work in five hours
than simailar bodies generally per.
form in three days. It was a mod
el deliberative assemblage. Its
personelle was admirable. Its
smooth working was due largely
to the tact of its presiding officer,
Colonel Charles H. Simonton, of
Charleston, who is, perhaps, the
ablest parlimentarian in the State.
Everything ran along smoothly,
and not one incident happened to
mar the harmony of the proceed
ings. There was a notable ab
sence of speeches, and the entire
session was taken up with work.
The program had been clearly
mapped out by the executive com
mittee, and it only remained for
the Convention to ratify its re
commendations. The following
were elected delegates at large to
the National Convention:
Wade Hampton, of Columbia.
Christopher Suber, of Newber
ry
Leroy .F. Youmans, of Colum
bia.
F. W. Dawson, of Charleston.
The following are the district
delegates:
First*--W.' St. Julian Jervey, of
Charleston, Jas. F. zlar. of Or
angebu rg.
Second.-J. W. Moore, of Hamp
ton, and ). S. Henderson, of Ai
ken.
Third.-W. Z. McGee,of Ander
son, and J. C. Cary, of Oconee.
Fourth.-W. B. Stanly, of Col
umbia, and J. B. Cleveland, of
Spartanburg.
Fifth.-Giles J. Patterson, of
Chester, and E. M. Boykin, of Cam
dlen.
Sixth.- -B. L. Breeden, of
Georgotown, and A. T. Harlee, of
Marion.
Seventh.-Joseph H. Earle, of
Sumter, and C. E. St. John Sin
elair,. of Beaufort.
The following' is the new execu
tive committee:
W. TI. Brooker, George W. Croft,
A. J. Norris, W. J. Gooding, John
L. Allen, George W. Mower, D. F.
Bradley, Wiley Jones, William
Munro, IR. P. Todd, T. H. Clark,
E. C. McClure, C. E. Spencer, J.
M. Johnston, Joseph T.. Rhamne, .J
W. Williamson, R. D. Lee, Josiah
Doar, .James Tr. Izler, George D;
Bryan and S. H. Rodgers.
TH!!E P1R EsIDENTIAL PREFERENCE.
(onversations with such of the
delegates as are in Columbia to
night disclose the fact that while
Bayard is held by them in the
greatest esteem, they regard (leve
landl as the most available candi
date. All efforts to pass resolu
tions pledging the delegates fail
ed, andI they go untrammelled by
instructions. An earnest effort to
adopt the unit rule likewise failed,
and the individual rnembers of the
delegation can vote as they please.
The question of nominating State
officers was productive of a lively
debate, but it was determined to
make nominations and the entire
State ticket was nominated by %e
clamation. All the present incum
bents were nominated unanimous
ly amid thundering applause.
THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTORS.
The following were nominated
as presidential electors:
At large-Isaac X. Bryan, of
Greenville, nnd John C. Naskell?
of Columbia.
First district.--B. H. Rutledge,
of Charleston.
Second district.-Johnson Ha
good, of Barnwell.
Third district.-W. C. Benet, of
A bheville.
Fourth district.--John E. Bacon,
of Columbia.
Fifth district.-W. L. T. Prince,
of Chesterfield.
Sixth district.-John L. Man
ning. of Clarendon.
Seventh .district.-James D.
Blanding, of Sumter.
A resolution was adopted au
thorizing the executive committee
to supply any vacancies that
might arise. An immense amount
of work was done in a brief time,
and the result gives general satis
faction.
At seven the Convention took a
recess till nine, to give the com
mittee on -platform time to com
plete their work. At that hour
they were not readfy to report.
Qovernor Thomnpson, Lieutenant
Gov.S Opard, Secretary of State
Lipscomb, General Youmans and
Captain F. W. Dawson made glow
ing speeches. The platform was
finally adopted. It is substantial
ly the same as the platform of
1880, with a few minor modifica
tions. At alate hour the Conven
tion adjourned.
WASHED AwAY.-The bridges
on the Enoree river at Woodruff's
and Kilgore'., in Spartanburg
county, were washed away on

August freshet of 1p52. Reports
from 'Laurens cotinty state that
the bottoms 'on the -Enoree and
Saluda rivers and on Rabun
creek are overflowed and the corn
drowned out, and it will be neces
sary to replant in nearly every in
stance.--Dai ly News.
