f TRI-WEICKLY EDITION. WJNNSBORO. S. C,, N O~ \IMBER, 94,1895.
It Doesn't Do _N ci, But It Took a
i:ng T.-me to Adjourn.
The ion etiftitU:tl conention re-as
.embled at S 'clock T':-da evening
rafter its three-d ays rec* s and once
more resumed the cot sideration of the
suffrage article. taking up the unim
portant.sections. Tihee was not more
than a bare quorum of the members
present, yet a late session resulted, an
adjournment only bing reac-hed after
it was iound that tiier' was "no
quorum" in the hall.
The only matter of any consequence
a cted upon was the striking out of the
.provision for representation for both
;political parties on the boards of elec
tion managers and canvassers of re
turns. An attempt was made to allow
property-owning women to vote in
-municipal elections on questions of in
creasing the public debt, but it failed.
A proposition was introduced to defer
the assembling of the legislature from
the last Tuesday in this month to the
second Tuesday in January.
The suffrage article was taken up,
and sections 5, Fi, 7 and i were adopt
ed. t follows:
Section 5. Any perrson denied reg
istration shall have the right to appeal
to the court of common pleas, or any
nudge thereof, and thence to the
supreme court to determine his right
to vote under the limitations imposed
in this article, and on such appeal the
hearing shall be de novo, and the gen
eral assembly shall provide by
law for such appeal and for
the corection of illegal and fraud
ulent registration, voting and all
other crimes against the election laws.
Section 6. The following persons
are disqualified from being registered
First, persons convicted of burglary,
arson, obtaining goods or money un
der false pretenses, perjury, forgery,
robbery, bribery, adultery, bigamy,
wife beating, housebreaking, receiving
stolen goods, breech of trust with
fraudulent intent, assault with intent
to ravish, miscegenation and larceny
or crimes against the election laws:
Provided, that the pardon of the gov
.ernor shall remove such disqualif-ca
Second, persons who are idiots, in
saue, paupers supported at the public
expense. and persons confined in any
Section 7. For the purpose of vot
ing no person shall be deemed to have
gained or lost a residence by reason of
his presence or absence while employ
ed in the service of the United States
nor while engaged in t'he navigation
of the waters of this State, or of the
United States, or of the high seas, nor
while a student of any institution of
*See. 8. The general assonbly shall
provide by law for the registration of
all qualified electors, and shall pre
scribe the manner of holding elections
and of ascertaining the resit of the
same; provided, at the first registra
tion under this Constitution and until
the 1st of January, 1898, the registra
tion shall be conducted by a board of
three discreet persons in each county,
to be appointed by the governor, by
and with the advice and consent of the
senate, for the first registration to be
provided for uudet this Constitution
The registration books shall be kept
open for at least six consecutive weeks
and thereafter from time to time, at
least one week in each month up to :30
days next preceding the first election
to he hold under this Constitution.
Section 9 was then taken up and the
Ksection was given several small amend
ments, Gov. Sheppard having the word
"election" in lines 1 and 4 changed
Thie amended section and the substi
tute were then read, the former being
in this shape:
Section 9. The several counties in
the State shall be divided into polling
districts, with one precinct in each. of
the same: at which alone the voter
registered for that precinct can cast
his hallot. Provided that a voter may,
upon a change of residence be trans
ferred from one polling district to
Quite a debate occurred on this
election, and finally Mr. Wilson move:1
to adjourn the debat.e ou the section
and the substitut e ntil later. This
was agreed to.
Section 10 was then adopted as fol
Section 10. The general assembly
shall pro" ide by law for the regulation
.& t party primary elections and punish
i t raud( at the same.
When section 11 was called Governor
S Ieppard offered the following amend
Add to the section the following:
['hereafter the registration books shall
bpublic records, open to the inspec
tion of the public."
Mr. Fitch offered the following:
Add to section 11 after the word "in
teriu." on line 3, "or to correct any
mistake. error, omission or f'raud of the
hoard of r'egistrat!in. and add after
word "'election" on line 2 the following:
"And they shall be 'open for public in
spection one week thereafter, prior to
th'- election, and be placed in the clerk
of court's offce for such inspection."
There was quite a discussion over the
maitter of these amendments, and the
section wa then passed over, the
a:edet being ordered printed in
'-ectioni 12 was adopted as follows:
:Section 1: Eletors in municipal
e'lectionis 'sh'll possess all the qualifica
tio)"s "and be unbect to all of the dis
.,uiiiadons herein prescribed. The
production of a certificate of registra
tion from the registration officers of
the county as an elector at a precinct
included in the incorporated city or
town in which the voter offers to vote.
is declared a condition prerequisite to
his voting, and in addition he must
have been a residr -t within the incor
porated limits at least four months be
fore the election, and have paid all
taxes previously due and collectable.
ANOT3E WOMAN*S St'FFRAGE FIGHT.
Section 13 was called up, reading as
Section 13. At any special election
in incorporated cities and towns of
this State for the purpose of bonding
the same, all resident owners of pro
perty of the assessed value of $300, in
said cities and towns, who are other
wise qualified electors under this Con
stitution, shall alone be entitled to
vote. At such election the voter shall
produce a receipt for all taxes, county,
State and municipal, due and collecta
ble, for the previous year as evidence
of his right to vote.
Mr. Meares rose and offered to
amend by inserting after "electors"
on the fourth line, the words "except.
as to sex," which was to allow women
to vote. He spoke at length to his
proposition. This was a different
thing from the proposition already
fully discussed and voted down. This
was a kind of an election that might
not occur in many years, and it was
but right that the women should be
allowed to have a say about their pro
perty. The convention should meas
ure the matter.
N'r. D. S. Henderson said he was
the one member of his committee who
was against it- It was simply the
question whether they were going to
make an entering wedge and allow wo
men to vote at all or not. He was 4p
posed to it. A. lively debate followed
but the convention adjourned for the
night on learning that no quorum was
A VITAL MATTER AT ISSUE.
Shall the State Have the Right of
Change of Venue?
On Wednesday, the 40th day, the
convention completed the discusSion of
the suffrage article and the whole
thing has now been sent to the third
reading. A vigorous effort was made
to prevent the possibility of fraud in
the handling of the registration books,
but a provision looking to this was
killed. After an extended debate the
ordinance providing for an issue of
State bonds to enable the several
counties of the State to do business on
a cash basis was killed.
The convention at night took up the
section of the article on jurisprudence,
allowing the State to secure cbang
of venue from one county to another
in criminal cases-giving the State the
same right as is allowed the defendants.
The real meaning of the proposition is
that the State wishes to try men
charged with violations of the dispen
sary law in counties other than their
own. This was developed in the de
bate. All the lawyers have been
turned loose on the vital question and

does it up completely, so as to give
civilization a fresh chance. A lot of

years taken high rank in furniture and
finishing factories on account of its
softness, adaptability to shop work. its~
lively color and figure. When plain

any onk, although quarter sawed white
oak is more expensive. According to
the Northwester'n Lumberman this red
oak belt In Wisconsin is not wide, and
at the rate the timber is being cut oft
it will probably not last more than six
or seven years. In the northwestern
part of the State. which is not yet op
ened up by railroads, there is a heavily
timbered area which may contain much
red oak. but it will soon h'e traversed
by a railway from Duluth.

A Farmer's Find.
-John Stauffer has made an impor
f~ tant discovery of anthracite coal on
-his farm, back of Cherry Run, W. Va.,
a twenty miles sonth of Hagerstown.
d With the aid of his son and one hired
man he has mined during the past two
or three months twenty tons of coal,
and landed the same at the top of a
y sixty-foot shaft by hand. The coal
n was carefully covered, ani the mining
t went on in the strictest secrecy by the
.t light of an ordinary coal oil lamp.
-Stauffer has now started from the bot
k tom of the shaft to tunel into the
s mountain. The vein is very thick,
-and the coal has been pronounced
-equal to the Shamokin Valley product.
t Stauffer's tract embraces 1000 acres,
s but his land is poor and his means are
d tlimited. Some time ago options were
,secured on neighboring lands, but
- prospecting met with no results. Be
n fore Staufier had investigated, the ex
kitent of the vein he is now working he
tried to enlist the aid of local capital
ee ists in the formation of a company,
1 but was not successful. After this he
. started right in to work, keeping his
rmovements secret and making sur
e prising discoveries.--St. Louis Globe
