The farmers held a convention in the
Court House last Saturday. Delegates
were present from all the townships in
the county except 73, and s. Upon
motion of John T. Duncan, W. D.
Hardv was made chairman of the
meetng. Mr. J. T. Duncan then nom
inated J. C. Gary and then M. M.
Buford, to act as temporary secretary
but both declined. The same gentle
mTai then nominated S. M. Duc.tni
and he was elected.
Chairman Hardy stated he was not a
delegate to the convention, but it was
decided that that did not make him
ineligible to preside over its delibera
tion. He then stated that the meeting
was called in pursuance of a call pub
lished in the county papers to elect
eight delegates to a State Convention
to be held in Columbia on 27th inst.

ships were then enrolled. The follow

J. T. Duncan then made a motion
that.-the convention proceed to elect
eight delegates to represent Newberry
County in the State Convention.
John WV. Scott thought that the dele
gates to the State Convention ought to
be sent untrammelled, or each delegate
who was proposed should express him
self before the ballot was taken.
M. H. Gary moved that the delegats
elected to the State Convention be in
structed to oplpose the normination or
suggestion of a State ticket.in said conl
This resolution elicited quite an ani
John T. Duncan said that the reso
lution proposed was going directly in
opposition to the wish of some of us,
especially when taking into considera
tion the purpose for which the State
Convention is called. He thought there
were no delegates present who would
be willing to go to Columbia to oppose
the very thing for which the State Con
vention is called. "I think Ispeak the
sentiment." said Mr. Duncan, "of the
rank and file of the Democrats of New
berry County, when I say that trie
party needs to be cleansed. There is no
harm to come out of this movement.
The proper way for us to cleanse the
party is for us to work within the party.
Thre is no danger in the movement.
We are pledged to abide the result of
the regular Democratic State Conven
tion. One way to cleanse the party is
for the farmers to put forth the men of
their choice. I think the sentimient of
Newberry County is for nominations
at the Miarch Convention."
M1. H. Gary said that his reason for
offering the resolution was that he
though t the sentiment of a majority of
the farmers of Newberry County was
opposed to nominations at the March
P. C. Smith said that he seconded
the resolution for the same reason. He
believed the farmers of New berry were
opposed to March nominations.
J. F. Batnks said that he had very
decided viewvs on the question. "I am
sorry," said Mr. Banks, "according to
the expression of opinion by Mr. Dun
can that I am in the minority on this
(uest ion. [ am not in favor of nomina
ting candidates at the March Conven
tion. I see a necessity for the March
Convention. That is to adopt a plat
form ot principles upon which any
honest man can stand. No political
aspirant has anty business here. The
rai who is willing to get upon that
platform wvhen adopted is the man we
want. WVe are opposed to monopolies
and have been fighting monopolies,
and we should not nowv try to create a
political monopoly. If we can find a
man from our owvn ranks who is comi
petet we should take him, but if there
is one outside of the farmers who is
more competent and who is willing to
get on our platform, why not take him.
I am not in favor of taking a man sim
ply because he is in our ranks. I am
in'favor of sending delegates who are
willing to adopt a platform of prin
e;lples, but not for making nominations.
We can go within the regular D)emo
ratic Convention anid capture it. We
are in thme majority. What have we to
J. T. Dnncan said: "The adoption of
a platform arnounts to nothing in our
trammelled position. In the last cam
paign we adopted a platform in which
we asked the privilege of having a
State canvas before the election. That
privilege was allowed us. But that
plank has been taken out of the plat
form of the reg.ular Denmocratic party.
This resolution and the nominatIon at
the March Convention is to force a
state canvas before the regular Demo
ratic State Convention. There is no
other way to get it. XVe have been
abused Liv the press (if the State from
all sides, but I am glad to say we have
some friends left. Every opportunity
has been taken to abuse the men who
are at the head of this movement.
Some in one way and some in another.
Sorneanticipate great danger in the
movement. It is time for the farmers
if they ever want to make a square I
tight to suggest a State ticket and come
before the people. There is no dan:cer
of the farmers splitting ott from the
Democratic party. We are the party.
We comprise SO per cent. of it. Don't
tell us we are a close corporation. We
have nothing to conceal in this move
John W. Scott said: "I don't see any
grcat big 'booger' in the March Con
vention. I have not seen it yet. I
don't see any harm the March Conven
tion will do. Some think it is to make
a genuine straight out nomination for
us to vote for in the general election.
If that were the case I would be afraid.
You tell us to build a platform of prin
ciples. That is what we ha' e been
doing. What is to hinder a man who
wants to be elected to office from stand
ing upon any platform we may build
if he thinks he can secure his el.etion
by it. When a man lends money he
picks his men. He does not lend just
to any man who is willing to sign the
note. If we are to have a plat form let
us say who is to stand upon it. Why
should we not h,ld a convention and
just suggest a ticket. That is all that
it is proposed to do. -They say' we
have the numbers and can :control the
regular Democratic Convention and
why not put our ticket out at that time.
We have never done it yet. When the
politician fires his artillery into us we
scatter like a covy of partridges. The
object of the meeting to-day, and of the
State Convention, is to brin_ about or
ganization. We have not done any
thing because we have not been united.
We do not propose to take one of our
farmers simply because he is a farmer,
but we propose to take a good man,
whatever profession he may follow,
who will honestly carry out what he
proposes. I don't believe a word about
this movement splitting the I)enmo
cratic party. The farmers will not
split the party. They will always
respond to the call when necessary.
They have always respond to t he call
when necessary. They have always
done it. The danger will come from
among the politicians. They are the
ones who will split the party and try to
get others to split. We will always
stand together when necessary."
P. C. Smith: "If we send a delega
tion instructed for nominations and
this March Convention puts a ticket
before the regular Democratic State
Convention, and suppose the regular
State Convention does not adopt that
ticket may, we not expect a lot of sore
heads among the friends of that ticket,
and would not this likely result in a

the action of the regular Democratic
State Convention. In our primary
elections in the county we frequently
have bad blood and sore heads, but at
the general election we all vote the
John T. Duncan: "We reiterate our
pledge to abide the result of the regular
Democratic State Convention. We
propose to fight the issue out within
the ranks of the Democratic party."
J. C. S. Brown: "I did not intend to
say a word. But this thing is going to
cost the polities of this State a great
deal. The last Legislature gave us
everything we asked. We got the col
lege. We had better go about these
measures in the regular way. We had
better handle this thing with care. I
am a Democrat and I am for Demo
crats first. The Farmer's Association
is a defunct organization. Cannot a
farmer be a radical? What right would
we have to exclude him from participi
tion in this meeting?There is no farmers'
organization in existence in this State
except the Alliance, and it has no
polities in it. I am willing to send
delegates to the March Convention, but
I am not willing. to instruct them for

The resolution was defeated.
J. T. Duncan then moved that the
delegates be instructed to vote for
nominations in the State Convention.
This resolution was adopted on a
division by a vote of 24 to 22.
The following names were then
placed in nomination as delegates to
the State Convention:

Messrs. Buford, Scott, P. C. Smith,
Banks, Workman, Hunter, Connor,

Holloway and Brown declined.
The vote for delegates was by ballot,
voting for eight delegates on one ballot.
The eight ieceiving the highest num
ber of votes were declared delegates,
and the others alternates.
The chair appointed J. T. Duncan,
M. M. Buford and J. F. Banks tellers
to collect and count the vote.
The following is the result of the
ballot, the first eight names being the

Th~e Convention then adjourned.
The discussions, though animated,
were all in the best of spirit and tempel)r
and the proceedings were harmonious.
As the delegates are instructed for
nominations we tried to get an ex pres
sion of opinion from themi as to their
choice for Governor.
Hardy and Duncan favor the nonmi
nation of B. R. Tillman; Kibler and
Smith had not made up their minds.
We have b'eedl anable to see Sligh,
Nel, and Stockman. Keitt was not
present at the Convention Saturday,
but tells as since, that he does.not favor
the nomination of a ticket at the
March Convention, but that if he at
ends as a delegrate will follow instruc
tions. He has not yet made up his
mind as to his choice for Governor.

On Monday afternoom about four
o'clock the alarm of tire was sounded.
It was discovered that the residence of

on fire. Tfhe fire department responded
promptly, but the fire was so far under
way that nothing could be done for
Mrs. Havird's house. The firemen
worked bravely, however, and saved
the houses in the vicinity. It was
found that the fire engines could be of
no assistance, as there was no cistern
near enough for them to reach the fire.
The firemen, however, and the Hook
and Ladder company did faithful work.

least ought to he on hand. But what
we want to say is that the Spring
attire can now be putt on by the male
population, and thus entice the merry
maiden along with her sunshine and
showers. Smith & Wearn, the "New
berry Clothiers," are performing their
part of the progranmme. They have
a magnificent lot of clothing. You
won't be forcing the season by getting
into a nice suit at once. See thier ad.
