vote in a primary and they wanted to
choose delegates as they saw fi:. They
were satisfied for the Reformers tc
choose two of their factio:n by any
means they see fit, and the Conservr

that a gentleman who was in a posi

had said that there shall be no peace in
South Carolina until after the election
for United States Senator comes off,
bat this was no ieason why people
should not come together. Ie argued
that there was fraud at primaries and
would be again. Ile also argued that
the third highest man at a primary
was elected no matter what faction he
belonged to and the law would entitle
him to his Feat.
There was a cross-firit:g of remarks
by several at this point, and Mr. T. K.

a resolution that five men from each
faction be chosen by their respective
factions who would be voted for at a

ground that it was not binding on the

faction may desire) to be voted for at

with the understanding that each voter

Tillmanites-the two highest of each
faction to be the candidates at the gen
This was pas-ed unanimously with
the exception of two votes, viz., Maj.
Woodward and Mr. John Morrison.
After the resolution passed, Major
Woodward arose and said he would
do nothing to oppose the operation of
the resolation, when Mr. T. K. Elliott
said: "I move that you go one stop
frther, Major, and say to us that you
will advocate it." Then Major Wood

there was no other course he could
ightly pursue, for he had T-ted on the
resolution and was bound by it.
Mr. W. R. Rabb then offered the
fillowintg resolution, which was
Resolced, That the chairman of this
