Machinery Democratic Party Set I? Mo
and He) ward Endorsed.
The State Democratic Convention
was held in Columbia Wednesday. It is
said to have been one of the most har
monious State Conventions held in years.
The Convention was called to order at
noon by Col. Wilio Jones, Chairman of
the State executive committee. Col.
Robt. Aldrich of Barnwell was elected
temporary chairman of tho Convention.
In assuming the chair, Col. Aldrich
briefly thanked the Convention for the
hnnnr Vwat-nwcvl <*r\A ttipn called for
nominations for permanent chairman.
Hon. J. W. Thurmond of Edgefleld was
nominated and elected by acclamation.
Mr. Thurmond expressed his appre
ciation for the high honor. He regarded
it as a high honor to be elected as Chair
man of the Democratic Convention. He
appreciated the honor because he was
to preside over the white man's party.
The Republican party is the party of
trusts, although it could not be trusted.
He said the President and the Republi
can party had evidently made a deal
with the trusts. Senator Tillman has
exposed that combination. (Applause.)
He was particularly eulogistic of the
old soldiers who were in the city and
members of the Convention.
Hon. T. S. Sease of Spartanburg was
elected one of the vice presidents.
Gen. J. Walter Gray and Mr. J. T.
Parks were chosen as the secretaries,
Col. J. S. Wilson, sergeantat arms,and
Col. Thos. C. Hamer, treasurer of the
On motion two permanent committees
were appointed, one on platforms and
one on constitution and by-laws. Each
county selected its own members of the
committtees, Mr. Clarence Cuningham
being chosen by the Laurens delegation
as a member of the platform commit
tee and Col. T. B. Crews of the com
mittee on constitution and by-laws.
As a part of the general agreement
none of the resolutions affecting the
dispensary situation in any way were
taken up, whether referring to an en
dorsement of the dispensary or any
other phase of the situation, and by
agreement nothing on this line was read
to the Convention so as to avoid any
precipitation of a fight on the floor and
in order that the committees might
map out things so as to avoid any fights
The Convention adopted without dis
cussion a brief resolution commending
Senator Tillman. The resolution reads:
"Be it resolved by the Democratic
Convention of South Carolina, That the
fearless, able and consistent course of
our senior Senator B. R. Tillman in the
United States Senate commands our
approval and we tender to him this ex
pression of confidence."
The Convention, at the instance of
Mr. J. G. Richards, of Kershaw, did the
very sensible thing of having one cam
paign party in the approaching cam
paign. U nder the party rules there are
usually two rings in Senatorial years,
but under the resolution of Mr. Rich
ards, there will be but one campaign
this year, which is to begin on Tuesday,
GOVERNOR HEYWARD ENDORSED.
Another timely resolution presented
to the Convention, through the entire
committee, but which was suggested by
Mr. J. G. Richards of Kershaw, was
one endorsing the successful adminis
tration of Governor D. C. Hey ward. ?
The Convention voted for this resolu
tion with unanimity and zest, because
all hands are pleased with the adminis
tration of Governor Heyward.
THE PARTY PLATFORM.
The Convention adopted without dis
cussion the platform of the party sug
gested and reported by Mr. J. Adger
Smyth on the part of the committee.
It is as follows:
"We believe that the executive, judi
cial and legislative departments of gov
ernment should be forever separate and
distinct from each other, without the
right of either to usurp or encroach up
on the functions of another.
"We believe that honesty in the pub
lic service and economy in the expendi
ture of public funds are essential to
good government; no taxes should be
levicdnor tariffs imposed upon the peo
ple beyond the actual necessities of the
government economically administered.
We therefore urge such reasonable re
vision of existing tariff that manufac
turers shall not obtain a higher price
for their products at home than they
demand for such products abroad. Also
such further revisions will admit free
of duty products that are manufactured
within the United States by trusts and
"It is essential to the material inter
ests of the people and the development
of the incalculable resources of our
country that there shall be no unjust
restrictions upon healthy industrial com
petition. We therefore demand a rigid
enforcement of all laws enacted for the
prevention of trusts and combines and
a speedy trial and punishment of per
sona engaged in their violation.
"The rights of labor and capital are
identical. They are entitled to equal
protection under the law. Evidences
exist in other parts of the country of
growing hostility between these two
builders of national wealth. We be
lieve these conditions will be amelio
rated under a system of government
granting no privileges which enhance
the profits of the rich and increase the
cost of living to tnc consumer."
United States Senator B. R. Tillman,
who was a delegate to the Convention
from Edgefield did not attend, the first
State Convention he has missed since
1888. He could not get away from his
duties in Washington.

Court ot Qeneral Sessions.
To His Honor Charles G. Dantzler,
The Grand Jury beg to submit the
following as their final presentment for
1. We have carefully examined all
bills handed to us by the Solicitor, and
have acted upon same as in our judg
ment was just and proper.
2 As recommended in our last pre
sentment, we again call the attention
of the County Supervisor to the fact
that a sewerage system is badly needed
in the courthouse and jail buildings, and
that such sewerage be put in and com
pleted by the next feotm ?f court:, r?r ?h
soon as tho Supervisor can conveniently
3. The committee appointed to ex
amine the premises, buildings, etc., at
the County Home, beg to report that

vided for, and express themselves as
being kindly treated by the Matron,
Miss Jane Starncs.
4. The committee appointed to in
vestigate the books of the county of

able to make the investigation as yet,
but will do so on the 30th of June next,
in connection and with the assistance of j
the County Auditor.
5. We would call attention to the
fact that this body deem it advisable
that the wood on the county farm be
used only for the use of the County
Home and the chain gang.
6. We recommend that Will Boyd,
Arthur McGowan and John McGowan
be prosecuted by the Solicitor, and that
a warrant or indictment be issued
against them for unlawfully carrying
deadly weapons as was brought to our
notice in inquiring into the cause of the
killing of Hosea McGowan.
7. In conclusion, we desire to thank
your Honor, the Solicitor and other
officers of the court for various courte
sies shown us during this session. Also
ask that we be discharged from further j
attendance upon this court.

Why Was Latimcr Neglected?
Did the State Democratic Convention
forget that Soutli Carolina is repre
sented in the United States Senate by
more than one person.
The strong affirmative endorsement
of Senator Tillman cannot but make
conspicuous the quiet, calm teetotalism
with which the name of the Hon. As
bury C. Latimer was kept out of the
proceedings. Indeed, there is danger
that persons of sourish disposition may
construe the contrast in treatment of
the two Senators to mean that the el
der, not to say better, statesman was
in need of the injection of some heroic
elixir of encouragement from home.
In our own opinion, the Convention
out of the benevolent impulses of its
heart, simply could not but cry
?'Bravo!" to a lusty fighter in the stress
of combat, and cheer a "strong swim
mer in his agony."
Nevertheless, one canr.at but discern
a curious chilliness towards Senator
Latimer on the part of the South Caro
lina Democracy, and we arc inclined to
think that the Convention unwittingly
made a mistake in neglecting to bestow
a few gently approving pats upon his
broad shoulders. ?News and Courier.

"Oh, I AML SO TIRED!"
Is heard daily from old and young, rich and poor. Did'you over stop and consider
the cause of this remark? We will venture to say nine cases out of ten are
caused by improper digestion. This, or other symptoms of Indigestion such as
nervousness, nausea, heart-burn, sour stomacn, flatulency and despondency,
should be a warning to you who are in danger of having indigestion, the great
est enemy of American health to-day, fasten its merciless fangs on your health.
Remember, "A Stitch in time saves nine", and a bottle of the celebrated
Kellum's Sure Cure for Indigestion has saved untold misery to people in many
parts of this broad land, by curing them permanently of this miserable disease.
Yes, not like the pepsin digestives that help for a time, but cures permanently
by causing the digestive organs to perform their functions. Nature being such
a great rectifier of its own ills, with the assistance of this powerful medicine,
gives you a healthy stomach and removes indigestion and its symptoms perma
nently. Sold on a $5.00 guarantee. 50 cents and $1.00 per bottle at
