THE FAtMERS' CONVENTION.
The Farmers' State Convention met,
accomplished the work for which it
was called and adjourned. Whethel
the methods used in the accomplish
ment of this purpose were right and
proper, and whether when accom
plished, the action was wise, there i
diversity of opinion. One of the object,
of the Convention was to make nomi
nations. Nominations for Governol
and Lieutenant-Governor were made.
The call for the Convention was mad(
to those who were in sympathy with
the Farmers' Movement as expounded
in the call of Capt. Shell, of Laurens
In , majority of the counties in which
con ventions were held for the purpos(
of electing delegates to this State Con.
vention, the farmers were opposed tc
the Convention making nominations
It seems that in the State Conventior
when the vote was first taken on mak.
ing nominations, that a majority of the
delegates were opposed to nominations
evea including Mr. Farley, a citizen of
Laurens, as part of the Spartanburt
delegation, the vote being 116 for
nominat ions and 117 against, but b3
sharp tactics several votes were au
nouneed as changed and the result wa:
declared in favor of nominations. Ther
four of the Pickens delegates voted for
nominations when their County Con
vention had in;tructed them againsi
Then there were several counties it
the State that were not represented is
this Convention at all.
We do not believe that a majority o:
the farmers of this State favored nomi
nations by this Convention.
But the nominations for Governoi
and Lieutenant-Governor have beer
made, and a platform adopted, and the
question now arises will the farmer.
endorse the action, and support the
nommnees in the regular State Demo
cratic Convention. If they do, then
can be no doubt that they will be the
norniuees of the regular Democrat<
The platform adopted by the Con
vention is a moderate and rather con
servati'-e document. We have nevei
thought there was any special necessit3
for a constitutional convention, but i
the people want it, and are willing t<
go to the expense, we have no objee
TIhe agitators of this movement have
been abusing ring rule and "cut anc
dried" conventions, and caucus nomi
nations. The proceedinigs of this Con
vention impress us very much as i:
everything was "cut and dried" for the
purpose. Mr. Tillman says he wrote
the platform and brought it to the Con
vention in his pocket, and it was re.
ported to the Convention even before a
committee on platform was appointed
Everything was rushed through t<
carry out the purposes for which the
Convention was calied.
But the Convention is pledged tc
abide the result of the action of thE
regular Democratic State Conventiou.
As to the nominees we have very
little to say. We are frank to admit
that Mr. Tillman is not our.choice foi
Governor. Mr. Coit has not signined
whether he would accept the nomina
* tion tendered him or not. Many peo
pIe are disappointed in Mr. Tiliman.
He has time and again, when charged
with having in view the Governorship
* in his agitation said that he did not
want any office, that he was working
solely for the good of his brethren, the
farmers; but now that he enters the race
for Governor many of his friends are
,sadly disappointed. He has a right to
run for this office, as any other man
has. It is a laudable ambition in any
man. But Mr. Tiliman has so often
disclaimed any purpose of wanting
office that his friends are disappointed.
We have only this to say, we did not
believe that the farmers of the State
were in favor of making nominations
at the March (Convention, and we do
not believe that a majority of them ap
prA'e such action now, but they are
made. We did not believe that such
action would be wise, and the work of
the Convention has not changed our
opinion. But if the regular Democratic
Convention approves the action of the
M1arch Convention, and puts forward
Mr. Tillmnan as the nominee for Gover
nor, we shall support himi, although he
is not our choice. We have great con
fidence in the patriotism and good
c>mmnon sense of our people, and vi
believe that if the people, when they
come to consider the situation seriously,
believe it best to sustain the action of
the March Convenfion, they will do it,
andI if it is thought best not to do it,
they will as readily repudiate it. If
they (do Mr. Tillnman and his followers
miust make up their minds to bow
gratcefully to t he action of the people in
their regtular C'onvention assembled.
It is a long time yet before the time
for tli* meet in<r of the regular State
Deor.i Cnenin There will

At the citizens meeting last Friday,
it was decided to refer the matter of
nominating a Mayor and Aldermen of
the town for the ensuing year to a
Democratic primary. The rules gov
erning the primary are published else
where. Three candidates for Mayor
have signed the pledge and are in the
race-J. K. P. Goggans, E. C. Jones
and Jno. C. Wilson. The race promises
to be a spirited one. So far the canvas
has been active but all in good spirit.
The candidates are all good men and
any one will make a good Mayor. The
election will be held to-day. There
has been about 400 voters registered.
Only Democrats will be allowed to vote
in the election to-day. The regular
election will be held next Tuesday.
There will hardly be any Republi
can ticket in the field, yet a good many
negroes have registered.
It has been difficult to get candidates
for Aldermen to enter the race. but we
believe all of the present Aldermen
have consented to run, and they will
have no opposition. They are, Ward
1, L. M. Speers ; Ward 2, Wm. John
son ; Ward 3, T. E. Eptiug; Ward 4,
G. A. Langford. We trust the fight
will continue to be a friendly one.
The majority plan is to rule in the
primary to-day, and if a second elec
tion is necessary it will be held on
A great deal has been said and writ
ten lately about retrenchment and re
form, and extravagance in the man
agement of affairs in South Carolina
has been repeatedly charged. Now it
is a very easy matter to make whole
sale charges of extravagance, and to
cry reform, and to deal in generalities.
Our people are in a state of unrest and
seem to want something, and it is a
popular thing to preach extravagance
and to talk about the reforms that are
needed in a general way, and many
pretended friends of the farmers are
riding this hobby because the mass of
the people are pleased and tickled with
such stump oratory. We want to see
this matter brought down to facts and
figures. What reforms are needed?
Please specify. Let us know where
there has been extravagance, and where
there can be retrenchment and reform.
The editor of The Herald and News
claims to be a reasonably reasonable
man, and he is sure that he favors the
strictest economy in the management
of the affairs of State, that will secure
to the people an honest and efficient
Now if these so-called reformers will
just specify and show us where there
is extravagance and where there can
be reform, we will give the influ
ence of this paper to show up the ex
travagance and bring about the re
forms. But we want more than whole
sale charges and generalities.
The only thing that we have seen
specified is salaries of State officers.
If the State officers, as some one has
said, would work for nothing there
would be no appreciable difference in
the rate of taxation.
The question that should engage the
attention of our people now is the fund
ing of our State debt, a large portion of
which falls due in 1892. Nearly all of
the State tax that we pay goes to pay
the interest on the State debt. We are
now paying six per cent. interest on
this debt of about six millions, which
makes $360,000 annually. Now if this
six millions of debt can be funded for
four per cent. there will be a saving to
the tax payers annually of $120,000.
This is an item that would be an appre
ciable saving to the tax payer, and in
forty years would be a saving nearly
equal to the whole debt.
It is thought that the State debt can
be funded for four per cent. if wise
counsels prevails. But if we throw
our State in confusion and shake the
confidence of the financial world in the
stability of our State government, it
will be difficult to fund the debt at a
low rate of interest.
We need financial statesmanship
now. This is a big question and one
that should receive the attention of
We shall expect Mr. Tillman in his
canvass of the State to specify what re
forms can be made and what he pro
poses to make.
GRADED SCHOOL BUiLDINGS..
We publish elsewhere a notice of an
election to be held in Newberry on the
14th instant on the question of issu
ing bonds to the amount of $10,000 for
the purpose of erecting suitable build
ings for the use of the Graded Schools
in Newberry. We also publish in this
connection section 7 of the Act estab
lishing Graded Schools in Newberry
which authorize the issuing of bonds.
This is an important matter. If we
are to have a system of Graded Schools
in Newberry as we have determined to
have, there can be no doubt there can
be no- doubt that suitable buildings are
needed. There is nothing that we can
do as a town that will help more to
build us up in material advancement
than a first-class system of schools, and
no one will question the need of suita
ble buildings. Then let us go to work
and have the buildings and start the
schools off right in the beginning.
We trust there will be little or no op
position to this measure.
"sc. 7. In the event the Board of Trustees
hereIn provided for shall deem it necessary
to erect school buildings for the use of schools
therein, or to purchase property for a like
purpose, it may be lawful for them to submit
to the qualified voters resident in said schiool
district, at an election to be held for that pur
pose, after ten days' public notice, the ques
t,ion of authorizing the Issue of bonds not
exceeding the amount of ten thousand dol
lars. bearing six per cent. interest and pay
able in twenty years (the proceeds of which
bonds shall be used by said Trustees in pur
ba.sing or erecting suitable school buildings,
in repairing or improving school buildings,
nd in providing suitable furniture and ap
parat us for same), and t he levy of an an nual
tx of six-tenths of a mill to pay the Interest
on said bonds. The Board of Trustees Is I ere
by empowered to appoint three managers to
onduct any such election, to declare the
result of the same. and is authorized to exe
cute and deliver the bonds so aut horized to
be voted, in the event that the majority of
persons voting at said election shall be in
favor of the same. and the interest annually
aerung on the said bonds shall be paid by
the County Treasurer out of the proceeds oif
aid special tax-anysurplus remaining after
te pyment of the annual interest to be
applied to the redemption of thie bonds
i'ud uder direet:on of thesaid Trustees."
The big pension bill amendment has
been killled. It was too big a grab even
for the Republicans. Under its pro
visions it would have taken about
300,000,000 to pay the arrears of pen-1
sons. It provided that pensions on
acount of wounds or injuries or dis
ease, conmmence from the dleathl or dis
charge of the soldier.
Mr. B. R. Tillman was quoted in th
News and Courier as saying in hi
speech before the Convention in C'
lumbia last week: "If you ask ne t
lead this fight you call on me to lead
forlorn hope; but you will have
your head the only man who has th
brain, the nerve, and the ability to of
ganize the common people against th
aristocracy." Some of the delegatt
have told us that Mr. Tillman did n
use the language attributed to him. i
are glad that Mr. Tillman has settle
the question and tells us what he di
say. He says the acoustic propertit
of the ball are bad, and probably th
reporter did not catch his words full\
He says that he used this languag(
"and if I am the only man who ha
the brain" &c. He qualitied his e)
pression with an "if." This "if" dot
not help the matter much. It seen
to us now that he first assumes that h
is the only man who has the brain, &c
and then says if he is the only man, &
It reads to us even with the "if' as
there was still a good deal of egotist
about the matter. Possibly he is t1
only man to lead this fight.

We hoped against hope until thela:

Tillman was right. We thought hir
a somewhat extreme and violent mar
but believed that he was entirely cot
scientious, and was induced to mak
rash statements and take positions h
could not hold by honest zeal for tb
good of his State and the righting <
wrongs. When he declared at the b<
ginning of his career that he was a car
didate for no office, but trustee of a
agricultural college and desired n
other, we swallowed it whole and hi
lieved it im'licity. We have resente
and repelled the charges of oppositio

We I elieved that we had at last foun

The dream is over; the idol issha

during the last five vears to give sha r
to. The Farmers' Movement, for t1
farmers, of the farmers and by the fa
mers, has been twisted into a Tilllma
movement for Tillman, of Tillman an
by Tillman. What we thought wf
patriotism we find to be politics. V
can only ask the Columbia Regist(
and other esteemed contemporara
