LAURENS, S. Cm Aug. 13, 1895.
The nominees, as thoy now stand for
tho Constitutional Convention, for the
various counties, will, In all probabil
ity, constitute tho body. It thoroforo
1b not altogether lie practicable to
mak-of ?s tho intelligent body of medi
cine men express it, a diagnosis of tho
outlook. First, it transpires just now
from Tillman's forecast, that tho Mis
sissippi plan of regulating tho sutlrago
has already boon udoptcd to bund, and
oxcopt in matters of detail and adap
tation to local coudltlons, tho ground
work is laid. But let us look baek a
little. The last Constitutional Conven
tion 3lttlug in South Carolina, com
posed of tho oducated white pooplo, sat
In tho Baptist Church iu Columbia iu
1805, called by Provisional Govornor
Porry, during tho administration of
Andrew Johnson, and intended to meet
tho extraordinary conditions resulting
upon tho conclusion of tho war. it was
a very ablo body of representative
Carolinians. Tho trouble now lies In
tho fact that it would uppoar that wo
aro not to soo their liko again. Judgo
Wardlaw, of Abbcvlllo, proslded .ovor
tho body. The suggestion of a few
names recalled from memory and with
out tho record will givo some idea of the
"giants in those days :" James L. Orr,
David Lowl8 Wardlaw, ox-Govornor
Frauds Plokons, (tho war governor,)
Dawkins, of Union, Burt, of Abbeville,
rlso up to confront tho memory, shad
ows now, but mighty spirits. It Is true
that Orr, liko Saul, towered hoad and
shoulders abovo all tho rost, but thoro
were mighty men at his elbow, com
posing tho body of tho Convention.?
Howovor, It was Orr's Constitution
when made, on all except the minor
details. I\ion. of Fair-field, then coming
up to fTtlknianhood. was Iiis first lieu
tenant. yVfl^^iavc said, the
body of tho OT^Jfc^on cgnta/inod :?.uch
ability and great oxporlencu, while as
a band of Stato patriots unexampled,
as provon on tho tented field.
Whllo comparisons aro odious, odo
rous or inodorous, it is lamentable
that tho compositum of tho coming
Convention as now dovelopod In quality
of ability, oxperionee or patriotism, Is
infinitely below that of the mon wo
have namod and described. A recur
rence to tho porsoncl of preceding
conventions In tho Stato would moro
glaringly minlmlso tho llguros that
aro to represent tho sovereignty of
South Carolina In tho convention to
assomblo at Columbia, in tho Hall of
the House of Roprosontatives, In tho
ponding September. "'Tis true, and
pity 't'.s 'tis true." Take, for Instance,
tho tlmo of '112 and exorcise tho groat
forms of Chovos, Calhoun, McDuHic,
Harper and Proston, and then look on
- this plcturo : Tillman. Talbert, Evans,
Latimor, Wilson. You must conclude
what a mlsorablo failure was Swift In
his dollnoation of the giants of his
great island as Llleputlans, notwith
standing every incentive of disap
pointed ambition, stimulating tho
prlncollost ability to paint tho picture
approximately to the life. When tho
body assomblos in Columbia it will
stand unexamplod as a parliament of
trained mediocrity In tho annals of
logislatlon. As we have hinted, it goes
Into oxlsteneo with the right kind of a
rabbit foot, the loading spirit having
adopted tho Mississippi solution of tho
most vexed problem', leaving but minor
quostions for tho Independent settle
ment of those woighty solons. A large
number of theso men have been to tho
"forefront" of tho battle In political
lifo In South Carolina, and the meas
ure of tho longth of thoir intellectual
_, lasts has bsen taken with accuracy In
tho Stato. Third-rate ability and lirst
rato sharpness may be act opted as an
accurate description of thoso who may
bo anticipated as the leading and prom
inent actors as formulators of provis
ions and debaters on tho lloor. Strange
ly, liest and in a group, the two Tlll
mans, Sheppardand Talbert, Edgolleld:
Barker, Mitchell, Nathan, Bryan and
Farrow, Charleston: Sloan, of Rich
land; Hondorson, of Alken ; Tho Wil

with tho skirmish line, and at tho

Harris LitMa Water.
The most remarkable Water on the Market to-day which
Shown by its Analysis and Testimonials of the Most
Noted Physicians of the Country.
Road what a prominent merchant of Columbia, S. C, has to say for
Harris Lithia Water.
"I had Ion"; been a fleeted with kidne) troubles. I had tried all the
mineral waters from Saratoga to Porter Springs. I had tried the
Western waters and all others that I could hear of, and I have no hesi
tancy in saying that none have benefited me even appro imatcly as
much as the Harris Lithia Water. I was using the Buffalo Litttfa Waje?
when I heard of this. I do not expect to use the Buffalo Water again.
"When 1 went to Harris Lithia Springs, I had to be assisted out of
my chair. After remaining two weeks I could get about as'good as
anybody. It acted on me like a charm?quickly and effectively. This
water is now being largely sold in Columbia, and I think every person
who has tried it will agree with me in the belief that it is the most re
markable water in the country. From a simple interest in suffering hu
manity, I would like very much to sco it given a trial.
C. A. BALDWIN, Columbia, S. C.
Harris Lithia Water Co., Harris Springs, S. C.
Ashkville, N. C, September;, r>, 18O3.
Mr. J. T. Harris:
We have been selling the Harris Litbi.i Water for some time, and
find it a ready seller; those who have tried it are 1. id in its praise. The
doctors here regard it superior to cither the Buffalo or Londonderry
Waters. We predict for it a wonderful sale when the merits become
more generally known.
Yours very truly, RAYSOR & SMITH,
Prosperity, S. C. Fob. 28, 18?4.
Mr. J. T. Harris:
I have been under the treatment of several physicians, and been to
different watering places during the last ten years for kidney disease. It
affords me pleasure to say that I have received more benefit from the
use of Han is Lithia Water than all remedies combined.
