here on Satur day of this week is called
fo)r the purlpose of reorganizing for the
ranpaign, and for the adoption of a
co nstitution1 for the I'emocratic party
of Newberry C(ouity.
We understand that it is the purpose
of manny persons to elect delegates to
tie State Convention, which mteets in
('olunbia on 'eptentber loth, at the
county (onventio i to be held here on
Saturday. There is no qu' stiont that
hie 'Iillm:an mlen will onohtrol the (on
veition: on Saturday by a very large
majority. We are also satisfied that the
eleetioti of delegates to the State Con
vention was not contemplated in the
rall issued for this County Convention.
It has never been customary in this
county to elect delegates to a State
Convention .0 long before the Conven
tion meets, and we do not see how they
catn he elected on Saturday without
to)tally disredarding tle coIstitUtionl
of the Dernocratic party in this county,
and why should they be elected so long
before the meeting of th' State Con
vention. Surely the Tillman men are
not afraid of a teant ion of public senti
ment in the county before the first of
Now let its see what the constitution
says on this point:
''he State ('onstitution of t he Demo
e atic party says in regard to the elee
tion of delegates: "Any county, if it
see tit, may at the same time choose
delegates to attend Iwo difleret't State
'onventions: P roridrdd, The same he
heltd not more than four months apart:
1,Orie-d (d5o, That notie of the same
be given in the cal! to elect such dete
gates." This is an amnendInent passed
September 6th, 1 The clause pre
(edinlg this priii-es that each State
Convent ion shall be (otpliosed (of new
lV elected delegates.
Te preSent Coun11tv Constitution,
whieb~ has been in e:w sinice 1's, pro:
vides that a County (-ivention "shall
be called for a specilie purpose or pur
p.)ses which shall be stated in the call,
bat it may without previous notice act
upon any matter of detail or any un
toreseen exigency." Now we ask, is
the election of delegates to the State
Convention a mere ruatter of detail, or
has any unforeseen exigency arisen 4
We (10 not believe the D)emnocrats of
Newberry will go in the face of the
cons5titutiti of the party, and con
trary to all precedetnt ini the Democratic
party, anid elect delegates this long be
fore the meeting of the State nomina
ting (Tonvention. What is to be gained
by it ? If it is dotne the conclusion will
be inevitable that the leaders of the
Tillman men in the Convention will
be afraid to risk the educating in
tluences of this "campaign of educa
tion." Otherwise why should they de
sire to elect at this time ?
But there is another phlase of this
qluestiotn to which we desire to direct
attention. Shall we elect (iur dele
gattes bo primary election ? And if not,
why ntot 'u Thi question will be left
to the decision of the Tillman followers,
who will largzely conitrol the Conven
tiont on Saturday, andl the responsibili
tv of its (decision will rest with them.
Mfr. Tili man, in his public speech at
Greenville, as we und erstood it, and at
other points, said lie wanted the people
to speak in this matter, and said this
was the first time the people ever had
had the opportunity to hear and see
the catndidates for Governor before
their election was assured, and lie
urged the electioni of dleegates to the
State Conventioni by primtary election.

oiut thle provWisionls of the 31arch Con

the expressed preference of MIr. Tillmtan

refused to go into an agreement with
Gen Eatle on thle sublject of a primiary.

The State Campaign for the first
week closed at Newberry on the 13th.
Last week meetings were held at Ab
beville, Anderson, Walhalla, Pickens
and Union. We endeavored to give a
full report of the meeting at Newberry.
The speeches at all the places are very
much the same with varying incidents.
Our space is not equal to anything like
a report of the meetings.
At Abbeville and Anderson the re
port is that the crowd was tolerably
equally divided between the Tillman
and the anti-Tillman men. At Wal
halla. and Pickens the Tillman men
were in the majority, but a respectful
hearing was given all sides. At Union
the meeting was a decided Tillman
meeting, a(. there was not much dis
position to hear from the other side.
The meetings opened this week at
Columlia on Tuesday.
At Anderson Capt. Tillman retracted
and apologized publicly to Col. .1. J.
I)argan for what he had said of him
when there before.
At Walhalla he said those Senators
who voted against reapportionment
were injudicious legislators. Senator
Bieman was present. The meeting at
Pickens was an orderly and quiet one.
At Abbeville Capt. Tillman refused
to agree to the appointment of an ex
pert to examine the books of the ComI
missioner of Agriculture, although
Gen. Earle proposed to pay all the ex
At Union lie refused to agree to
Earle's propocsition to have a primary.
The editor of this paper has under
stood he was advocating that plan.
The Columbia meeting was looked to
with much interest. Senator Hamp
ton was there and made a good speech
and received quite an ovation. J. C.
Haskell also spoke, and in reply to
Tillman, but Tillman did not remain
to hear him.
There was a considerabe crowd pres
ent. The World says Tillman had the
day. The other papers, and gentlemen
from Newberry who were there say it
was a decidedly anti-Tilhnan meeting.
G;en. Pope and Col. Farley who were
to speak at night declined to remain
and went on1 to Lexington.
Tfhere was an accident at the Cjoluni
bia meeting caused by the explosion of
a cannon by which three young men
were severely hurt: J. M. Stork, and
W. H. Casson, Jr., of Columbia, and
W. Olin Barre, of Lexington. Mr.
Barre died. MIr. Stork had to have his
right arm amnputated. 3Mr. Casson was
not so badly hurt.
The mass meeting yesterday was at
Lexington, to-day at Edgefield and to
morrow at Aiken.
THE OLb AND THE NEW.
We publish this week on the first
page of The Herald and News the old
Consttution of the Democratic party
in this county as adopted in 1878, and
the new cons-itution prepared by the
Executive Conimittee under direction
of the County ('onvention held in 188S,
and to be proposed for adoption, aniend
ment or rejection, at the Convention
on Saturday. They are side by side
ad convenient for comparison.
The old one we take it is of force
now, but there have been a few amend
mets dutring the ten years of its ex
istenic. The only amendiment that
we have been able to find is the one
adopted at a county convention on 12th
of August, 18S2, increasing the memu
brship to 222 delegates and making the
apportionlimnt among the several town
ships, as proposed in the new constitu
t'n This apportionment ought to be
chaiged now as sonie of the townships
likelv have more and some less Decmo
cratie voters thiain in] 1882. But this
matter will come before the convention
saturday. All that we desire to do is
to direct attention to the old and the
new constitution so that dlelegates may
be preparedl to p)ropose such amend
ments as they desire, and1 inl doing so
Ihave both 'onistituitionis before them.
The State Constitution of the party
was puiblished ini The Herald and News
a few weeks ago.
We understamid that Capt. B. R. Till
mani, candidate for Gbovernlor, and who
"ight get into the U nited1 States Sea
ate" as the successor of Wade Hiamp
ton, is decidedly opposed to what is
known as thle sub-treasury bill, and
that lie and his brother Gleo. D). Till
man, now a Congressman, are both
"thoroughly satisfied that thle sub
treasury idea is arrant nonsense." We
are glad to agree with these gentlemen
on this subject. Ini this connection we
desire to call attention to certain qjues
tions propounded to the candidates for
ongress from this district, by the
Alliance. lt is tehe platform referred
to in The Herald and News several
weks ago, as being adopted at the
Belton convention held in February by
delegates fromi the several county
allilances in this d i5trict.
Thle sub-treasury scheme, in our
opinion, is a very wild one and imnprae
ticable, not to speak of its constitution
aitv. We do not b'elieve it will ever
h~eomne a la~v.

The following is reported as havin!

Mr. Tiihlnan'. Charge Against the So-Callet
To the Editor of The Herald and News
Mr. Tillman urges with peculiar erierg
the charge that the people of the Stat<
have not hitherto had the goveroinent co
the State. but that that government lia:
been in the hands of an aristocracy. Ho
has not, so far as I have heard him o1
read the reports of his speeches, under
taken to define the term as applicable t(
our affairs, but has contented himself witl
saying in general words, that it is a gov
ernment of the many by the few, an'
with referring to two or three matter,
which, he insists, show the applicatioi
In his speech at Newberry, on the 13t1
instant, he dwelt earnestly upon the oli
Parish System, as it is generally called
by which certain sub-divisions of coun,
ties (or districts as they were then called
in the low-country, were allowed such
representation as gave each one of thos
districts a greater namber of senator:
than was allowed up-country districts
And he instanced the District of Charles
ton as having ten Senators, and Beaufor1
District four senators, while Newberr)
and Edgefield, and all the upper districts
had each but one senator. That was quit
true until soon after the close of the war
But ever since 1868 there has been al.
lowed but one senator to each county o
the State except Charleston County
which has two senators.
I do not assert that Mr. Tillman in
tended his audienee to believe tha1
Charleston has had more than two sena.
tors, or Beaufort more than one senator
within the last twenty years, but he
should, in fairness, have gone on to sa}
that that old system had been abolisheL
more than twenty years ago. and should
have stated, as I have just done, what it
the representation in the Senate now
Now whether Charleston ought to retair
two senators is a point about which muel
may bc said. I do not think it is any greal
matt-r: but I. for one, freely admit thai
I think that county ought to be broughi
down to one senator, like the rest of the
counties. And I think I go beyond Mr
Tillman in this; for I have not under.
stood that he wishes to cut down Charles
ton to one senator.
But he goes on to discourse about sc
many officers being elected by the Legis
lature, or nominated by conventions. The
only officers elected by the Legislature,
or that have been elected by the Legisla
ture for the last twenty years, outside ofI
its own officers, are the Judges of the
State, 'United States Senators, Trustees
of the 'University, six of the thirteen
Trustees of Clemson College, two mem
bers of the Board of Agriculture, the
Penitentiary Board of Directors, and per
haps some officers whose duties are con
fined to the coast-country. Of all these
officers there are but two sets. whose hon
ors or salaries (some of them get no pay
at all) would at all warrant a candidacy
before the whole people of the State;
which two are the Judges and the 'United
States Senators. Now, does Mr. Tillmai
wish these two kinds of officers to be
elected directly by the people? If he
does, why does he not say so? And if
their election in this manner is important,
why did he not put the matter into the
platform which he wrote and carried in
his pocket to Columbia in March?
But this is not what Mr. Tillman de
mands: and it is very doubtful whether
he desires the people to have any sub
stantial enlargement of their powers or
franchises- In his platform in March he
demanded a primary election of delegates
to the State Nominating Convention. In
his earlier campaign speeches he made
this demand, but now it is univer
sally understood that he seeks to be
made Governor by a convention not
itself elected by the people, but
elected by delegates from clubs. His
platform demands the nomination ol
Railroad Commissioners by a convention
elected by primaries : but as he has
dropped all demand for that sort of con
vention, this pretense of love for the peo
ple's rights falls to the ground. His plat
form demands primary elections for all
others than State officers. Why not for
State officers too? One would'imagine
that this man who rants and raves be
cause, as he says, the people are not al
lowed to elect their officers, would consent
for the people to hold primaries for the
nomination of state officers. Mr. Till
rnan is, therefore, no democrat, accord
ing to his own definition, for he sayvs
democracy implies the government of the
people by the people, and the filling ol
all offices by the vote of the people. Mr.
T illman is not weilling to trust the peopl
with the filling of all the offices. H e ic
therefore, by his definition, in favor ol
aristocratic government, at least to a cer
But it suits that gentleman to preaeb
generalities; and lie has found that it in
flames the people to tell them that they
have not had their piroper share in the
government: he therefore deals out an
ient history liberally, and rants about
the rights of the peop)le, without telling
them wherein he proposes to improve
their condition. He especially dwells
upon the charge that the people of the
low-country have for a great length ol
time appropriated public offices, to the
exclusion of up-countrymen. Now he ie
either very ignorant of the history of his
own State, or very indifferent about the
truth. He ought to know that for more
than fifty years-if not longer - up
countrymen have held more State and
Federal offices than low-countrymen
have. During that period but three low
countrymen have been in the Unite]
States Senate. unless he calls Darlington
low-country, and then there would be but
four of them. Calhoun, McDuffie, Pres
ton, Judge Butler, Chestnut, Hammond,
Hampton, 31. C. Butler, who have been
senators in that time, have all been up
countrymen. Judge Huger was the only
low-countryman elected in that time (un
less Judge Evans be so classed), and he
served but about two years..
Mr. Barnwell, the second low-country
man, was appointed for an unexpired
term, and served but a few months. A:
thur P. Hlayne, the third low-countryman.
was appointed by the Governor for the
few months of an unexpired term. And
against this DieSaussure and Elmore, boti:
up-country-men, were appointed for simi
lar unexpired terms.
In the Confederate Senate there were
Judge Orr from the up-country, and Mr
Barnwell from the low country.

of the Judges have been up-countrymen

Error as to Mr. Sligh Corrected. I
To the Editor of Tlte Herald and jil
News: I have learned t hat J was in r.
error in including Mr. .. A. Sligh (in re
my article in your paper last week) tli
anong the members of the Legislature pl
who voted against the bill to provide tl
for the enumeration of the inhabitants (;
of this State for the purpose of re- nj
apportioning representation in the m
house of Representative-, origimating in
in the House in 1s5. I had not the m
Senate Journal for that year, and in I te
iy article repeated what I had heard %
fromt persons who, I then supposed, hal tr
examined the journal, or had personal cc
knowledge of the fact alleged. My at
tention being called to the matter
since, I have examined the journal,
and found that my informant was
mistaken. I take pleasure, therefore.
in correcting the error, and in stating
that Mr. Sligh voted against the Io- T
1 tion to strike out the exacting clause of T
the bill, and thereby, so far as can be
judged from the vote on such a miiotion, tI
ildicated a feeling favorable to the
enumnerationi. .1. F.J.. C hue isi:u.t re

To the Editor of The Herald and ti
News : I have read Mr. ('aldwell's sy
article published in The Herald and oi
News of last week. We have no ob- in
jection to his managing the campaign tl
on his side, but when he attempts to n
manage that of his opponents he reck- of
ons without his host. Our reply to
him in plain vernacular is "shinny on sl
your own side." He says that he sees tu
nothing on Mr. Tillman's side but "a ic
compound of platitudes and personal- s
ities with nothing of substantial im- se
portance to the people." It seems that p
the people see very diflerently from tf
him. They are not looking through la
his glasses ; they are for the first timie
doing a little seeing and thinking for vc
themselves ; they see that this is a
campaign which looks to a more ceo- al
nonical government ; a campaign that
teaches them that they are the masters li
and the office-holders are the servants ; tl
that teaches them that a change in the h<4
office-holders will do good, if no other
good will teach the office-holder that a:
he mlust step dowi and out without fa
saying harsh things about the repre- di
rentatives of the people in this cani
paign or without getting up to such a tr
pitch of fury as to rend his gar"ients. of
The "lawyer lieutenants" seen i.> be a.
doing eftective work for the cus,, and
this attempt on Mr. C.'s part to array fu
the masses against then because they pl
are lawyers is to do the very thing er
that Mr. C. has claimed that Mr. Till- SI
man has done. These gentlemen are A
upon the ticket as citizens working for F
the common good. Mr. Caldwell ought
to be convinced that the county is
strongly Tillman, and the people have
made up their minds and cannot be So
Mr. Caldwell alludes to Mr. Sligh S
and myself in connection with the vote
on the census and reapportionment.
He places Mr. Sligh on the wrong side,
as lie voted all the way through for
a census and reapportionnment. As for
myself I voted in 1884 for a census Ti
based oii the U. S. Census of 1880). I
thought then that the Constitutiot:
would admit of it. I think so yet. 'rThe
Constitution then read as follows:
"Section 4. The House of Represen
tatives shall consist of one hundred cc
and twenty-four members to be ap- E
portioned among the several counties at
according to the number of inhabitants is
contained. An enumeration of the in- su
habitants, for this purpose, shall be cc
made in eighteen hundred and sixty
nine, and again in eighteen hundred or
and seventy-five, and shall be miade wv
in course of every tenth year thereafter, or
in suech mannerVJ a s shLa/ bc by law pr
directed ** *"7 in
Trhe italics are mine. I took the di:
I osition in 1884, when a bill was intro- w.
ducect to have the enumierationi made p1:
and the apportionnment had fromi it on ot
a basis of the U. S. Census of 188I), that
it was proper to make it in this way, St
and that the Legislature was made by Ia
the Constitution the judge of the mat- th
ter, and thereby the cost of a census av
would be avoided. We were defeated in
the House. In 1S85 (December), the
census bill came before the House and
I opposed it for two reasons-one wvas
its cost, the other was that the Con- Ps
stitution directed the Legislature to
providle for the taking of the census at
the session 1884, and this not havinig 1
been done, that under section 5 of the
Constitution the right to take it [sad
passed fronm the Legislature to the
Section 5 reads as follows :"I f the i"
enunerationi herein directed shall not
be made in the course of thbe year ap- e.v
pointed for the purpose, it shall lie the h
duty of the Governor to have it ef f'ected ar
as soon thereafter as shall be practical." on:
That the Legislature could only be 1
called upon by the Governor to appro- sa
priate the mioney neces.sary, and that a,
the Legislature having failed to pa:ss a
laxw taking the census, it was in eu
the poxver of the Governor to do what a"
the Legislature might have (lone, simu-'
ply have a tabulation made from the w.i
census of 1880, xvhich, xwhen transmit- tt
ted by him to the Legislature xwould
become the basis upon01 which to realp- I.]
portion the House, or failing in this wi
le could have a census taken ab~ initio, g"
and call upon the Legislature for an s.
apropriation1 sutlicient to defray the sa
exenlse. I therefore voited against the "ii
bill, it passed the House, but was w
killed ini the Senate. Then the Consti- us
tution was anmenided so as to allow the
census to be taken in 1591 froni the
United States census of 1590), and its I
take it, sooner if the Legislature satw
proper to do it. Enditer this change of Ti
the Constitutiont another attempt wvas
made to use the census of 1880) as the s
basis of apportionment. The bill passed 1.n
the House by a small nmjority, tu t was
killed in the Senate. I supporteid it. i
When the cenisus biil passed the 1House ih
in 1885 it hiad but six oppoetnts, two
of whom, MIr. Sebiumpert and mtyself, so
were fronm N ew berry. '
