AFTEF. THE CONVENTION.
How the Action of the Convention Ap
pearg to One Who Saw it Through -
The Need of the Hour.
SAEm, VA., August 1 .-I saw and
heard the late South Carolina Demo
cratic State Conventiou from begin
ning to end. I left Columbia the day
it adjourned and came here. I have
not seen a South Carolina paper since,
nor a South Carolinian with whom to
talk over the situation. I have not
heard what action was taken by those
delegates who withdrew, although I
understood they were to hold a confer
ence on Thursday and issue an address.
I think I was an impartial, though in
terested spectator of the proceedings of
the Convention. Interested asall South
Carolinians ought to be interested, to
the extent that home rule, honest
government, and white supremacy
should prevail in South Carolina. To
my mind, the situation is one that de
serves serious consideration, and a
patriotism that can rise above petty
faction and personal success. What
has developed since I left I do not
know, and it would not help the pur
pose I have in view in this article to
Now a few words as to the Conven
tion itself. I suppose The Herald and
News n ill contain this week the gist of
what was done, and I will do no more
than a'lude to it.
For convenience I will designate the
two factions in the Convention Till
man and anti-Tillman. There can be
no question that the Tillinanites had
largely the majority. They carried
thirty out of the thirty-five counties
with solid delegations, and from one
other county they had half the dele
gates, giving them 261 out of the 320
delegates in the Convention, leaving
the minority only 159 delegates.
This fact of so large a majority threw
upon the Tillnianites a responsibility
which they should have appreciated.
They threw aside the custom hereto
fore prevailing of permitting the chair
man to name the temporary president
of the Convention. This they had a
perfect legal right to do under the con
stitution, and it seems to me it would
have been better for Chairman Hoyt
simply to have called the Convention
to order and permitted it to have
selected its own temporary oficeers, for
this the Tillmanites had determined
upon any way. Th~ey were determined
to have everything or nothing, as one
of the de'egates said on the floor. I do
not think it was wise in the Tillmanites
to try in this way and others to aggra
vate the minority, but I have no com
plamnt to lodge on this score.
The committee on credentials deter
mined to throw out the Bratton dele
gates from Fairfield. From what I
could gather from the evidence and the
speeches, I think the B3ratton delegates
ought to have been given their seats,
but the Convention thought otherwise.
Mir. Douglas, of Fairfield, made an
eloquent speech for his side. A lot of
time was consumed in these matters,
which was unnecessary so far as result
wa concerned; yet, I like to see men
contend for principle, and although
they know the majority is against
That was a very unfortunate occur
rence between Dr. Pope, of New berry,
and 3Maj. Woodward, of Fairfield, and
it wvould have been a great deal better
if MIaj. Wood ward would not have said
what he did. I desire to say here that
in my opinion Dr. Pope was making a
fair and temperate statement of the
case from his standpoint, and the in
terruption of MIaj. Woodward wvas
altt gether out of p)lace, and uncalled
for. I know that Dr. Pope is enthusi
astic, and1 deeply in earnest, and from
my way of looking at the situation not
always right, but I believe lie is
thoroughly honest, and I know he is
incapable of willfully miisstating the
After these contests wvere settled the
permanent organization was effected.
It was then late at night, but the dele
gates were determined to finish the
work before adjournment was had.
The Convention was called for the
sole purpose of deciding the question
of primary, but that seemed to he of
The committee on resolutions re
p)orted a new constitution. This is wvhat
stirred matters to the highest pitch.
Here is where the Tfillmlanlites made a
mistake. If they had not insisted upon
the adoption of this constitution, the
anti-Tillmianites could not have found
the slightest pretext upon which to
hang an excuse to withdraw, except
that they were in the miinority. And
now I ask wvhat wis.domn was there in
forcing the adoption of thuis constitu
tion ? Whaut good can they expect to
accomplish byi?Tey might have
proposed it, and had it p)rinlted so that
the people could see what it contains,
and given notice that they would adopt
it at the next State Convention. That
senms to me would have been the wvise
eaurse. A constitution should be a
very important document, and should
n> t be hurriedly adopted.
They had a perfect legal right to elect
a new executive committee, alther'oh
I (d0 not think it wise to have done so.
The mninority has withdrawn. What
will be the effect of this I can't say. I
do not think they ought to have with
drawn under any circumstances. They
ought to have protested against what
ever was prpoe that was wrong and
revolutionary, and protested vigorous
ly, but they ought to have remained
in the Convention, and it would not
be lotng before the conservative people
would have commended their course.
The white people in South Carolina
cannot atlord to divide.
I do not believe the conservative
people of South Carolina, and I believe
tiey constitute a inajority, will ap
prove, on serious consideration, the
lion. [ may be wrong, but I think not.
The whole trouble is just this: There
are too many extreme men in both
factions who are, some how or other,
leading. The Tillmanites speak of
themselves as "we t he people,' and re
fer to the other faction as "the enery"
or as one delegate on the floor of the
Convention said, "the damnable
enemy," but afterwards modified it by
saying "the inveterate enemy." Then
the anti-Tillmanites speak of them
selves as the "straightouts," or as being
the regular Democratic party. These
things are all wrong. One faction is
no more "the people" than the other,
and there are true Democrats in both
factions. What we need on both sides
is more toleration and more considera
tion for the opinions and preferences
of each other.
The crying need of the dear old State
now is for a statesman, or half a dozen
or more men, to lead in both factions,
who have patriotism enough, and such
broadness of view, as can rise above
petty factions and prejudices, and look
the situation squarely in the face, and
say to these hot-headed leaders, that
the good of South Carolina and her
people shall be paramont to the success
of any faction or any individual.
If 3 majority of the white people of
South Carolina want Ben Tillman for
Governor, for God's sake let them have
him. The minority surely can stand
it for two years. I am no more in
favor of Tillman now than I was two
months ago, but if a majority of the
people want him, we had better take
him than split the Democratic party.
The white people must stand together.
But I do think the majority ought
to show more consideration for the
rights of the minority. There are many
true and good men in the minority,
and no set of magnanimous men will
oppress simply because they have the
Just before .the minority withdrew
from the Convention it looked as if
everything was going to be settled
amicably, but the leaders threw the
thing further apart.
I hope the conservative people will
get together and have everything fixed
up before the September Convention.
In my opinion the minority be
haved better in the State Convention
than I expected. They neither said
nor did anything rash until they with
drew, which they ought not to have
done. The speeches were pleas for
peace and harmony.
I have written this in the first per
son, and over my own name, and in
the interest of no faction or party, but
with the good of South Carolina in
mind. So far as I am concerned, the
success of one faction will help me no
more than the success of the other;
but as a citizen of South Carolina, I
want to see her honor and dignity
maintained, and as a Democrat, I
want to see the party united. The
unity of the Democratic party means
home rule and white supremacy, and
any citizen who remembers the days
of 1876 and before, and will throw any
thing in the way of the unity of that
party, the success of which means so
much, is not a true son of South Caro
lina. This is the way it looks to mc.
This country is on a general boom.
But a poor country editor does not im

CHARLESToN, S. C., Aug. 14.-The
action of the Tillmanite convention in
Columbia last night in trying to usurp
the places of the State Democratic exe
cutive committee has caused a tumble
in the stock market here.
Despite the fact that the convention
passed a resolution promising to look
after the debt of the State with as much
care as it has been looked after by the
State heretofore, nobody seems to have
confidence in their promises. A large
holder of Brown consols udloaded to

The withdrawal of the straightout
Democratic delegates from the conven

the breach in the party. In this section
of the country everybody is red hot for

The convention to nominate State
offiers occurrs in September, and the
straightout Democrats are organizing

CoL.UMUlma, August 15.- -The addres
of the Straightout delegates who with
drew from the State monvention ves
terday morniug was given to the pre'
to-day, and is as follows:
To the Democracy of South Carolina
We, the undersigned delegates fron
the counties of Sumter, Beaufort, Rich
laud, Charleston and Georgetown t<
the Convention of the Deiocrati(
party which assenibled in Columbij
on August 131, 189-, hereby annouie
to our fellow Denocrats the reason!
which compelled our withdrawal fron
The Convention assenibled unde:
the call of the State Executive Con
mittee, "for the sole and exclusive pur
pose of determing whether delegates t(
the State Nominating Convenion t
be held on the 10th day of September
or thereafter, should be elected by pi
mary election, to be held on a certah
day throughout the State, and for no
other purpose whatsoever.
The Convention, after its organiza
tion, instead of transacting the buisi
ness for which it had been suim[one(
proceeded to take action looking to tho
adoption of a new constitutio.. ;',r tii
party in this State, making m1any im

Against this action we made such ar
gument as was possible in the limitet
time allowed for debate by the ma
jority of the Convention. We pointe(
out that under the general rules o
party government, as laid down by s
distinguished a parliamentarian as thi
Hon. J. G. Carlisle, late Speaker of thi
House of Representatives of the U nite(
States, "when a convention is callet
for a special purpose, its authority i
necessarily linifteu by the terms of thi
call itself ;" that "it can have no gen
eral authority to bind the party by it
action on an any other subject, for thi
obyious reason that its members ar
simply delegated to do a particulai
We pointed out that this genera
rule as to party conventions was in ex
act accordance with the decisions o
our State Courts in the analogous casi
of the power of a convention of thi
people called under an Act of the Leg
islature for a specific purpose.
In the celebrated case of McCrady v!
Hunt, decided by the Court of Appeal
Judge O'Neall used the following lan
guage: "A convention a:semblizi
under the constitution is only the peo
pIe for the purposes for which it as
sembles; and if they exceed those pur
poses their act is void unless it is sub
mitted to the people and affirme(
by them. It is true the Legislatur
cannot limit the convention, but if th
people elect them for the purpos
of doing a specific act or duty pointe<
out by the Act of the Legislature th
Act would devine their powers, for th,
people elect in reference to that an<
Judge David Johnson concurred ii
this opinion, and Chancellor Harper
in his opinion, uses these words: "Cer
tainly the Convention was not the peo
ple for any other purpose than that fo
which the people voted and delegate<
them. To conclude that the people in
tended to invest the Convention witl
their authority for any other purpos
than the purpose specified would b

We stated these views fully, and ap
pealed with all the earnestness in on
power to the majority, as fellow D)emo
crats, not to force us into a positiol
where we would be compelled, in v'iev
of the limited authority conferred upox
us by our constituents, to refrain froni
participation in the further proceed ing:
of the Convent ion.
Notwithstanding thbese appeals, usurp
ing powers not delegated to themi, am
in o^pen violation of the law govermii
the subject, the majority proceeded
under the operation of the previou:
uestion, to take action upon the adop
ton of anew constitution for the Demo
cratic party of the State. We therefor<

wiiing to allow tile DemnocraLts wvhoni

precedent so dangerous and illegal.

committee had been superseded by the
action of the Tillmanite faction and

He promptly replied that his con

powers and duties were unafMeted, and
that the action of the Tillmanites was
unconstitutional, null and void.

serioUs. The railr(Zad authorities, how
ever say it is only a teiporary trouble,
which we hope it is, but then it doel
not look as well as it night. They
seIt m101eeV down here recently for
their employees, and paid one nwionth'
arrears, ani owe for two or threc
1uoths vet." It is said that the road
is indebated to other roads, and that
they cannot get their pay. Tle entir
diflliculty, as far as can be ascertained,
is in Iegtiatilg their bonds, but, at
present it seeils they are quoted at a
discoiunt. and the road wants to sell
then at par or a very simill discount.
Every onle hopes the Three C's toad
will tide its Iresent financial troubles.
