The Laurens Baae-Ball boys attended
tho Greenville tournament last week.
Much interort .icm centered In the tenm
from Lauren?. Prevlou? to th?
first game?, bet? wore made freely on
Laurens, and sometimes with odds.
But the first game playea with Honea
Path, paralysed all who had ventured
to back tbolr judgment on laurens.
The score stood 27 to 2, against us, on the
6th Inning. Suoh a score does not, in
fact, clo our boy? justice. Although
Hones Path has sn excellent nine and
made a good record, the Laurens nine
entered the diamond under disadvan
tages, and after a fe t round? two of our
men wars disabled, and Mr. HARKNKSS
was without a support. This is un
doubtedly the cause ot our fsilure. But
despite the Injuries which two of our
men received, they worked hard to the
last and wera loath to loave the Ao'-d
.van when after the hatti? was lost sod
lt was impossible fen them to play Ion

lint the big gama of tba tournament

"Greenville hos a very bad attack of
base bal) fovur and is wild over* the
Ramo, tin? interest having been sudden
ly dovoloped by the One contest of yes
terday afternoon. It will bo well for the
pop?le to remonibur, bowovor, that our
Laurens visitors are untitled to half tho
crodlt for the bonuty of tho ' gnmo re
forrod to. When scores sre tied at the
inst inning, victory bocouies very much
a matter of luok. Tho Laurens people
have as much cause to bo proud of tholr
club as we havo to glory in our's."
Mr. HARKNESS, who singued with
Laurens, was dooidedly the flnest pitch
er on the grounds, and lt is unfortunate
for him that ourcatchor, Mr. CHEWS, be
carno disabled. Thoroputation of HARK
NESS hf s not sulfured however, bv the ill

to say that JESSIE HAHKNKBB is tlie heft

The following Resolutions, adopted

Convention, were Introduced by G. W.
Duvall and were Adopted by the Con
Resolved, That the delegates to the
State Convention be instructed to sup
port snob resolutions as will tend to sc
ours an amendmont to tho constitution
of the democratic party of this State
whereby tho basis of tlio representation
In all conventions of the party will be so
changed as to pr?vido fora more equi
table and truer expression of the democ
racy in said conventions, that is, upon
the the basis of the democratio voting
strength of tho soveral counties.
WM KU i:AS, the constitution of this
State provides that a census of the peo
ple shall oe taken each ten years for the
Fiurpose of apportioning the representa
lon of the several counties tn the House
of Representatives; and, whereas, the
time for taking said census as provided
in the constitution, arrived in the ysar
1886, and, vv herons, a bill to carry out the
law was almost unanimously passed by
tho House of Repr?sentatives, the com
position of which hody was tobe changed,
and, whereas, said bill was deloated by
the Senate, therefore bo it
Resolved by this County Convention,
that the action of the majority of our
Stato Senate, In this matter meats with
our Unqualified disapproval and con
demnation; that we regard such viola
tions of the fundamental law as revolu
tionary in their (endenoles, and injuri
ous to a popular form of government;
that we disapprove such legislation be
cause it ls partisan in its snoot, retain
ing abnormal representation to eertaln
count lo?, therby depriving other coun
ties of tha representation to w hich they
are Justly entitled ; we declare that auch
legislation violates the principios of our
?avMr?.*tt<nfc, In that wo are to be taxed
without Just representation, snd that our
money ls to be appropriated without our
consent and In violation ol the written
law; we further doola.e that the action
of the Stat? senate merits condemnation
because as a result of suoh conduct our
next legislature will be oom posed in a
manner not provided for by law, and
tending to engender a feeling of distrust
and suspicion between the sons of a
oom m on Ststs. For these ransons we
deeply regret the action of the majority
of our Stale Sonata, sud feel that a fla
grant wrong has been done. We pres
ent this as a grlovnme, without hesita
tion, and In foll conlldencu that the next
legislature will Ism lo the law and right
the wrong that ha? been done.

On tho 18 ult. a few young people
of this section, joined Waterloo in
a pic nie, at Smith's Old Bridgo

present.. . The prospect for a cotton
crop ls anything but favorable in
this community. Thc plant is very
small for this time of year. Corn
on upland is very good where it has
been well worked; but unfortunate
fora good many farmers their corn
was on bottoms.Base Ball is all

the gentlemen who compose the
present Honorable Board of Com?
missioners for this County were
through this section, and with
smiles and hearty hand-shakes,
promised us that if we would sup
port them in the election, we should
have good bridges and roads. What
have they dorie towards fulfiling
their promise tons? If either of
them have been in this section
more that) once from that day to
this, I have not heard of it. Per
haps they have forgotten that Sul
livan Township is n part of Lau
rens County. Maddox Bridge, on
Saluda River, stood in a dangerous
condition for over six months be
fore it was washed away by thc
late freshets, and people crossed
every day at the risk of their lives,
when for the sum of one hundred
dollars It could have been math?
a safe bridge, and doutless would
have been standing to-day had it
been repaired in time, anti we would
not be necessitated the trouble of
traveling 5 or 10 miles out of our
way to reach the railroad.
We claim tito Maddox bridge is 1
as any on the river, or even In tito '
County, anti we pay our taxes as
promptly as any Township, and as
the bridgv? was not repaired in
time to save it, we ought to have
a new one at once, now (?entlemen
