about over and a considerable quantity
has been lost by tlie rains.

L~ookinag to a Settlemaenht Adopted by

The following resolutions were
adopted at a meeting of the Rlidgeway
D)emocratic Club No. 2--September

club that'the interest of the Demo

that' the split now existing be termi

manner and spirit of fair dealing to
2. To that end this club directs its
president ad commiteemnto exr
the following plan, to wit: That the
County Chairmen of the respective
factions and their executive committees
be induced to unite upon01 a date for
the holding of a County Convention to
be composed of delega ms representing
each club now existing in the county.
:1. That the colored urembership of
anyW club shall not be considered in
-tixing its nnu-uber of delegates.
4. That the rolls he revised by a
- ~ sub-committee equallyv constituted of
mie:nbers of the respective Executive
Committees, to be appointed by their

convention resign, the convention to
elect immediately a permanent County
Chairman for the whole Democracy.

point under control of~ a temporary

resignations of the two present chair
It is suggested, if advisable, that the
convention proceed also to make such
amendments to the constitution as

A EEVIEW OF THE CA USES
Which Led to the Present Complicationa
Calm and Clear Diicussion and Logica
Messrs. Editers: It is certain tba
the convention that met in the Cour
House on August the 9th, was Ak
It is certain that the chairman o
the Demuocratic Convention, (then an(
there and by every one acknewledget
to be the chairman of the Denocrati4
party of Fairfield County,) .i coi
pel/ed to decide a parliamentary ques
tion. It is certain that no act of thi
convention prior to the decision o
this question changed the chairman
ship, or altered the character of tb
convention as the Democratic Conven
vention of Faiitiald County.
It follows, therefore, necessarily tha
either that decision altered the charac
ter of that convention, or that, if i
did not, that any persons vtithdrawing
from that convention, withdrew fron
the De-wertic Conr'ention of Fairfiel
County, and lft ttil wcnciaion un
In order 4or that decision to altei
the character of that conventior , il
must have in~aired the rights of the
delegates as Democrats, beyond remedy
by the delegates in the convention,
necessitating action by them in a sepa
rale convention for the maintenance ol
such rights in their integrity.
What is the right that, it is claimed.
was imperilled by that decision?
The only right that it can be claimed
was i-perilled was the right of each
clnb to representation in proportion to
its membership, as prsiled for ly /he
('Ountly Denocratic Constitution.
The same constitution that provides
for this representation4 provides that
"the cins in this cosuit sha.1 be held
together and shall operate, under the
control of a: County Executive Com
mittee."-KaT. IV. One act of "tne
control" tfius vested in the Executive
Committee was a provision that all
clubs should file wit! the Secretary of
teIuxecutive Commit tee a roll of its
memibership, a certain uninbetbof days
prior to the assembling of a conven
tion (<ufficient to enable the coin
mittee to ascertain the nuanber of dele
gates to which each club is entitled.)
This act was either within the scope
of the powers vested by the consti
tution in the committee or beyou'1 the
scope. Which was it ? In all repre
sentative governments, the con.ti
&ntion provides the ratio of iepresen
tation, (i. c. one representative to so
many people,) and the method of ascer
taining the number of 'people within
any' given territory, there by detertmin
ing the numiber of representatives to
which the pecple in that territory are
entitled. The machinery for making
this numerical estimate is under con
trol of the executive department.
Therefore the Executive Committee
ments. It being clearly then within
the scope of the committee's powers, to
require the filing of these rolls, to re
view and, to the extent of its infor
mation, correct them, we arrive at th~e
parliamentary question which the
chairman of the cenvention, before re
ferred to, was compelled to decide, to
wit, was the temporary organization
of the convention to be made on the
basis of membership as ascertained
and declared by the committee? Un
less the reasoning preceding this can
be shown unsound, I cannot see how
he could have acted othern ise than so
decide. This basis of organization is
not in conflict with a committee on
credentials' work, but preliminary to
it: this determines the number of dele
gates to which any club is entitled, the
other, the personel of the delegation.
But, it will be objected, while the cenm
sus bureau furnishes the basis of re?
resentation. its results are reviewed by
the respective bodies to be affected by
the enumecrations, and the reapportion
ments are orderetd by the bodies them
selves. Thik is true, hut the body
that paasses on the enumeration and
reapportionment ' is not that body
which shal! be," but the old body before
there are any e./vuefs 'n t he represent a
tion, and in the absence of such old
body, ttnchanged, can only he done by
he Exectiv e Committee. T1herefore
our constit ntion especiativ proviudes in
A rticle IV: "The cubs in this count y
shall be held together and shall operate
ud~er the control of a County Execu
tive Coummtittee. And here the matter
mighlt end. . But in order to meet any
frt her objections, there are three
met hods by whuich the re'prc-entation
of clnbs might he deterinaed, hv the
cnW' msimple va-:en.eni, by t he Execu
tive Comnmit tee, by the convent ion
itself. The acceptance tf the club's
own stat' men~it is openI to the objection
that in1 imes (f excitemnent, the roll
might be enlarged by enrollment of
negroe s not entitled to join tunder
Democratic usages, or talsifled, or
former members un-vittingly retained
after thoir real membership had been
changed. The determinationi by the
convention itself is liable to the ob
jection, that clubs having a common
oject could join forces, and on a comn
mittee, to pass on their representation,
mutually support each other, or hav
ing the chairman in accord with them,
secme a committee composed entirely
of the' majorty's way of thinking.
All c-f these objections are met by leav
ing the determination ina the hands of
the Executive Committee where each
club is represented equally, where
there is ample time and where the
bias of partisanship is most. effectually
of-et, the committee thus being to the
conventtiont, in some respect, what the
Senate is to the ltonse. There is less
liability to frand or errocr therefore in
leavinag this matter where the consti
tution ruts it, in the Executive Comn
mittee. Should traud creep ini here
all clubs are repres.ented, and it can be

AMe concluded, therefore, that
the tempomary organization of the
Democr-atic Convention was ordered
on lines, in accord with reason, and
the precedent oi representative gov.
enent, and consequently it follows;
1. That any delegates withdirawinc
from such convention, left the onl~
Democratic Convention in Fairfield
Connty. -. That all acts done by thn~
a convention, within the scope of its cal
were done by the Democratic party o:
Fairfield County. 3. That these con
chtsions are not affected by the com
parative number of withdrawing oi
remaining delegates. 4. That dele
gations withdrawing ceased to repre
sent their clubs in the Democrati
party; and that a convention of sucl
1 delegates can never be the Dinocratic
Convention of Fairfield County
t 5. After their clubs ratify their with
drawal, such delegates would repre
t sert their clubs in a convention, bul
n not in the Democratic Conveition of
Fairfield County, an'i might represen

county, but not the majoritr of Demo

"We are confronted nith a ,,oil

What is that condition?
Two Executive Committees, - two
gentlemen claiming to be the Exe

mouth four conventions have asscin
bled and four sets of delegates elected
to two State Conventions.
The division in the party ranks
grew out of differences in the Countsy
Convention of the second of August.
The friends of Gen. Uratton con
I tended for one plan of organizition;
the triends and supporters of Capt.

In the humble judgment of the
writer, there is but one, arid that is to

persons, outside of tile State, the de

two first Conventions was legal and
which County Chairman and Execu
tive Committee is the party authority

Let the Lyles committee select one
referee, the Gaillard committee another
and the two gentlemen thus selected
choose a third. Let the court' of

Gaillard is held to be the County

decision is the other way, let Mr.
Gaillard resign and his5 committee take
their seats in the Lyles committee.
This would be -an honor-able adjust

conceive of none other. Can any one,
whno may be sincerely desirous of
uniting the p)arty, enter an objection
to it. If each side rests in the strength
of its position, it is the proper plain.
