Tho Democrats of Edgetield County
havo agrreed to mako an equal division
of the delegation from that county in
tho Constitutional Convention between
tho Reform and Conservative factions
of the party. Senator TUlman, as we
believe, is largely responsible for this
desirable result. Tho Democrats of
Alkon County havo agreed to make an
equal division of tho delegation from
that county. Govorno*- Evans, as wo
bollove, deserves credit for thiB result.
There aro othor strong Reform coun
ties in tho State that will probably fol
low tho same patroltlo plan, but in or
der to obtain a non-factional Conven
tion It is necossary that there shall bo
an equal divisiou "in tho wholo Conven
tion." This Is what tho Tillman-Barn
well Conforonco agreed upon, nnd wo
are satisfied that no othor plan will bo
aocoptablo to tho patriotic, peace lov
ing pooplo of tho Stato.
Thore seems to bo a disposition on
the p&rt of tho Roform loadors In sonio
of the counties to aggruvato tho pres
ent unfortunato differences among
white Democrats, and to peovont a re
union of tho whito people of tho Stato
upon anything liko equltablo torms.
This it> notably tho caso In Lauretta
County, where Senator Irby controls
the looal party maohinory. Ho hus said
? ? from the start that ho did not desire
poaco, and that ho would resist to tho
last any and all efforts to bring about
a better understanding among the peo
plo. At a mooting of the oxecutlvo
^ committee of Laurens County on Mo?
^^h^T*?*tho following resolution was
"Resolved, That in the election of
delegates to the Constitutional Conven
tion, and In order to Ignore factlonul
Solltlcs, we recommend that all candi
atos who will go boforo tho pooplo In
tho Democratic primary pledged to
submit to tho will of tho majority of
the white Democrats in Laurons
County, nnd in tho primary that tho
pooplo vote for such candidates Irre
spective of past factknul differences,
provided that such candidates aro
known to havo boon loyaband subservi
ent to white supremacy and Demo
cratic principles in tho past."
In this resolution Mr. Irby shows his
hand and wo aro glad that he has made
it so plain. The only division which the
Conservatives of Laurens County
should accept is an equal divisiou?
half and half if tho numbor of dele
gates from that county Is uneven num
ber, or one less than tho Roformors
shall have in tho Convention if the
numbor of delegates is an uneven
number. We hopo that the Conserva
tives of Laurens will insist upon an
equal division and accept nothing less.
The right way to "ignore factional
politics" in tho Constitutional Conven
tion is to mako tho factions >n that
Convention exactly equal, half and
half, eighty and eighty. This is the
Tillman-Harnwoll plan, and wo say
again that it is "tho working plan."
Senator Tlllman has proved his
willingness to carry it out in good faith
by agreeing to an equal division of
delegates from his own county of
Edgefleld. Governor Evans has proved
his willingness to stand by tho plan by
agreeing to an equal division from his
-. ob'unty of Aikon. It remuins to bo
seen whether or not Senator Irby shall
be permitted to permanently divide
tho whlto people of the Stato by stand
ing out against tho only basis upon
which they can moot in tho Constitu
?"tflta-l Convention. Wo aro satisfied
thttttbo Conservatives almost to a man
desire'tinLpeaee. and prosperity of the
State, that^tej|jn'e tired of lighting,
that they woukt-J^K?P 1 u any honorable
compromise at this^po for the pur
pose of keeping factional politics nnd
factional issues out of th^^CoiistitbV
tional Convention and out of^TCConsti
tution; but wo do not beliovo that any
of them will give any aid or comfort
to Mr. Irby's plan for perpetuating
strife in South Carolina, Unloss Sena
tor Tlllman shall Issuo an address to
tho Roformors of tho State urging them
to stand by his agreement with tho
Conservatives, thore is danger that tho
efforts which havo b3on mado will
prove of no avail. Tho Conservatives
desire a non-factional Convention, thoy
bollovo in whito supremacy, thoy stand
for honest elections; let senator Tlll
man and his aldos bring tho Roformors
into lino. The timo has come for de
finite action.?News and Courier.

We roproduco an editorial from tho
Charleston Nows and Courier to-day
and we do so without other comment
than to ask its careful consideration
by Roformors and Conservatives (or
antis, as you please.)
The IjUI4^BKhB^*-'heek of mankind
BBUju^hoi on*.' at every j&rrn especi
ally is 10 in little Hontii Carc
lii.a. Thoro has scarcely been such a
disturbance as she kicked, up in I860.
It was all about not being williug to
Kubinlttotho rulo of tho majority.?
Hamilton, Webster, Clay and ali that
school of Republicans held to that doc
trlno and urged it with great power.
Calhoun and Thomas Jefferson and
their Southern following thought min
orities had .some rights and tho people
of this state were so insistent that
when the majority elected Lincoln
Preeidcnt thoy with their Southern
colleagues submitted tho quostlon to
the arbitrament of the sword. This
majo. ity rulo principle is tho first and
ia t pro]M)8itlon in tho catechism of the
Republican or Radical organization.
Now, tho dominum element in this
State udopt this Radical plank, and
plumo them8olvcs as Joifersonian
Domoerats. lu this tho assumption
must be that all aro fools excopt them
selves; we would not for a moment
chargo it to tho ignorance of tho a- -
sumptionists. It is clear that tho min
ority hold to the Bound democratic
fait h. in claiming that a minority may
havo some rights. To illustrate: Tho
majority of whlto voters In these
Unltod Statos aro and havo been Fed
eralists and high tnritf advocates.?
Notwithstanding, tho socalled demo
crats in South Carolina and other
Southern States do and havo done
all in tholr power to circumvent tho
policies of thoso big majorities in
tho Northorn and Western States.
Now to fair minded men wo think,
this is enough to make clear tho point,
that tho majority Is not always right
and tho further point that tho dominant
olemcnt, f.s In many other ways, are
sliding over to Radicalism, without
knowing it, or showing u deal of cheek
about lndependentism. Now it hap
pens that South Carolina is peculiarly
situated with two factions among
her whito people, and a power
ful negro clement in tho State,
when it is proposed to roform her fun
damental law. The Conservatives, so
called, who aro sound democrats op
posed to destroying the State, by giv
ing tho Fcdoral Government control
of mines, mining, railroads, tele
phones, telegraphs, and what not; in
plaiu terms lighting with their fathers
Against Radicalism, republicanism, so
ciiism and nihilism, are alarmed and
insist that minorities have rights. In
this spirit thoy beliovo that tho white
peoplo of tho State should in this emer
gency got together; and In this spirit
for tho good of the State the liberal
broad minded and patriotic "10''
proposed an equal division of delegates
for tho constitutional convontlon.
Read and inwardly digest.
A lion, goat, heifer, and sheep hunted
together and agreed to divide the catch.
A lino fat stag fell into a trap set by the
goat. The Liou divided tho stag Into
four parts, saying:
This is mine, as I am tho lion: this is
mlno us I am tho s .rongest; that's for
tho most valiant; and as for tho fourth
part touch it if you dare.
Moral: Bo careful with whom you
agree to hunt.
Many of tho Counties in this State
will divido tho delegates, and thoro
will bo peace in tho State. The people
will get togother. Thcro will not al
ways be war. A wise man foresccth
the event. We now warn tho leaders
in Laurens and call their attention to
tho interpretation of the llttlo Hebrew
word that forms the caption to what
wo are saying. For convenient re
ference, Daniel, V. 21.
