Tuesday, August 5. : 1890
FOR GOVERNOR :
The County Convention.
We publish in to-day's issue of THE
NEws AND HERALD a full report of
the proceedings of the County Con
vention of 2nd inst. The outcome is
of course a matter of much regret to
I every honest and thoughtful Democrat,
and it is difficult to fcrccast how far
- reaching may be the results of Satur
days work. The intelligent public is
r entitled to judge of the merits of the
issues upon which the secession in the
L Convention were based.
In order that the question may be
squarelyputtoourreaders we will re
produce so much of the proceedings as
I relate to the issue. Heretoforewehave
Shadno contests among the clubs onthe
subject of proper representation in the
County Convention; we have had no
serious issues upon which our people
were divided and hence the inecessity
o f such a fight never arose. In the
fresent battle the lines were sharply
drawn and the contending forces have
be - e aly_equal in strength,
ence the maz Tero"opralir1ct'ite
.apportionment of delegates among the
Iseveral clubs was obviously an in
The Constitution of the party pro
vides that each club shall be entitled
to one delegate for every twenty-five
enrolled members. In anot her section
of the party law, it is provided in sub
stance that the several clubs of the
e >unty shall operate uinder the control of
the County Executive Committee. Thbe
clubs are to enroll, representation is
based on enrollment, and the County
Executive Committee, under the
authority of the section of the Cennty
Constitution quoted, called upon the
clubs to send up their respective rolls
five days before the meeting of the
Convention, and appointed a comimittee
to revise and correct the same and re
port to the Convention the result of its
work. Thie was done by a sub-com
mittee composed of representatives of
The work of the committee was the
work of each and every member, and
as the report itself shows was con
curred in by all -the gentlemen com
prising that body. The comm'ttee
was in session all day Frida1, sat with
open doors, received and heard all
testimony offered and thereupon
made up its report, which was the
bone of so much contention on Satur
As we understand it, the Tillman
forces wanted to ignore the action of
the committee and to have first of all
a committee on credential~s appointed.
The op,position took the ground that it
was premature to appoint such a com
mittee until there had been an enroll
ment of the clubs and their delegates
on the basis of the action of the Exe
cntive Committee. 'that from this re
port alone could the Covention base a
temporam y organization. The anti
Tillmanites desired an enrollment of
the legally existing clubs and that the
finding of the Executive Committee
should only be the law of the Conven
tion in its temporary organization.
They did not oppose the appointment
of a committee on credentials, but took
ground that there must firsat be a body
with members to move, aud members
to vote, an,d members to be appointed
on such committee. Chuair-man Gail
lard held that the findings of the Exe
ctive Committee were priaafacie cor
rect and must tbe the basis of tempo
rary organization. The ruling when
stipped of all parliamentary language
simply meant that the Convention
must first be organized by and made
up of delegates whose seats were in no
wse contested; that if contests were
to be heard and determnened there
must be first of all some body consti
tuted anid organiz ed to hear them;
that no one should sit in judgment
upon his own case.
LU. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 7, 1889.
Executive : Committee, coming as it
did with the full sanction of the party
constitution, entitled to respect, and in
a measure the obedience of the Con
ventiou,- but it afforded the only evi
dence whereby the Convention could
determine prima facia the number of
delegates each cub was entitled to.
The Tillman delegates withdrew
from the Convention because,
Chairman Gaillard in his honesty and
wisdom decided this question adverse
to their partisan views. Capt. Gail
lard was the lawfully elected and
qualified County Chairman, and as
such it was his duty to construe and
annource the party law as he under
stood it. This he did and for nu other
reason the Tillmanites withdrew from
Surely no position could be moze
untenable or less defensible. Many of
the more conservative of their num
ber, we feel sure, regard the actior
taken as ha,ty and ill-considered.
We shall confidently expect thal
sober reflection will briig back ow
friends to the authority of the party aj
expressed in its constitution and voicei
by its mouthpiece, the (Cunty Chair
man. Capt. Gaillard is right, ouw
friends are wrong. When they see i
