Thero is an annual distribution of this

County Democratic Convention.
On yesterday tho County Democratic
Convention mot in tho court house pur
suant to the call of tho Executive Com
mittee, tho object being; the reorgani
zation of the party for the ensulug two
years. Tho reprosoutatlon was not
full owing to the inclement day no
doubt. Laurons Township olub No. i
"1" was for some reason uuropresentod, i
although thirteen] delegates had boon
elected for that club.
A temporary organization was
promptly had by tho election of O. P.
Goodwin as President, J. Androw
Jonos, vlce-Presidont and Jno. M.
Hudgens, Secretary and Treasurer.
Tho"verlflcation of the delegates took
some time and on tho roport of a com
mitteo on credentials tho .organization
was made permanent. Tho executive
committee raon wore reported to tho
convention, one from each club, and
confirmed by the convention.
This was cloarly unnecessary
and the Convention had no
power in tho matter, tho Constitution
giving tho right of each Club to elect
d member of tho County Executive
Committee. The business of the Con
vention about concluded, Mr. G. P.
Smith moved, that Sonator Irby being
in the city, he be invited to address the
Convention which was ordorcd and a
committee consisting of throo dologutcs
soon oscorted tho Senator to tho floor
of tho Convention introduced by dolo
gato J. W. Yoargln. At this tlmo tho
bouse, was very thin, but after tho Son
ator had spoken but a few moments tho
large court room was comparatively
crowded. Tho Sonator oftor being
greotod with choers procooded In u
calm way to say that it was not his In
tention to mako a speech; that ho was
chairman of tho party in this State and
that a canvass was now actlvo and to
discuss tho issues would bo improper,
in him. Ho howovor drifted along
over, as it wore, tho shallows,and finally
drifted Into deep water, and made a
speech covorlng a largo Hold of Fede
ral and Stato polities and touching
many things. Without attempting to
give a roport of a speech of an hour,
tho following aro salient points of a
spooch extomporc and not cut out for
Aftor Congross adjourns ard after a
short visit to Now York ho would ro
spond to an Invitation to mako a speech
In tho county In this or noxt month.
If 1 woro to speak here to-day I might
bo inisroprcsontod; only a stenographic
roport of a spoech ought to go out; In
twenty minutes what I havo to say
would flash over tho wires tho length
and breadth of this land, it is an eas
ier thing to start a Ho on him than on
any man In tho Unitod States. When
ho wont into politics ho did not ex
pect to bo electod to tho legislature
Ho had tho fortuno. of Laurons; Lau
rens had furnished many loaders and
prominent men for tho country. To
secure tho rights of tho people it was
necessary for him to run for tho legis
lature In 1880. There were all around
wolves In shoop's clothing posing as
tho friends of the people He said ho
had been a quiet modest man In con
gross. When necessary for tho pro
tection of tho working men ho had al
ways been at his post; when necessary
for tho protection of your interests I
will bo there. Tho proposed tariff law
is a humbug and fraud and but for the
McKinley law ho would not support it.
Ho had not caucusscd with his party
because of the sugar trust contamina
tion. Two yoars ago he was opposed
to Cleveland; told them thoy would get
nothing out of Cleveland's administra
tion; Cleveland a hypocrite and fraud:
Cleveland no Democrat, but an aristo
crat, all his associations boing with the
money power. Ho himself was a full
blooded Domocrat, (emphasized) tho
party in this State was purely Demo
cratic, the South was Democratic; he
would be tho last man In South
Carolina to leavo tho party; Tom
Watson was a very bright young fel
low, but Incapable of leadership and
all tho South if handled right would
bo right and with South Carolina Dem
ocrats, (moaning Tillman). The South
and West must get together and with
Boies and Tillman or Stevenson lio be
hind a log in 185)0, and down tho Clove
land Ites. Thero is but one party for
tho South; tho Democratic. Drive out
Cleveland and stick to the party. In
ten yoars wo will havo relief. I saved
tho Democratic party in this Stato two
years ago from disolution. Stand by
tho Reform party, It Is your salvation.
Butlor has been kind and courteous to
mo always and I havo no complaint
against him personally, but Tillman
roprosonts your views and support him
for tho Unitod States Sonato.
This Government belongs to tho
white man, and must and will bo gov
orncd by whito mon. It was right that
a negro should roprcscnt tho 7th Dis
trict; it was set apart for him: tho no
groosaroall rogistorcd in that District:
everything tho last four yoars had been
fair, no fraud In cloctlons, all had their
rights, and the negroes would voto
with tno Tillmanltos.
Very pleasantly ho said there was
danger of tho antis joining them and
named two present eonvorts In Laurcns,
but thoy would soon bo for kicking him
and Tillman out. An effort had been
mado last Spring to oust him from tho
Chairmanship but he hung out In tho
interost of tho party: had boon twice
olocted and would sorve out his term.
Tho spoech was delivered in the best
of temper, tho speaker showing vicious
only wlien ho named Cleveland, and
terribly In earnest when ho claimed he
was a Domocrat and those ho repre
sented. While ho claimed ho repre
sented all tho party In this Stato.
