THE STATE CONTFNTION.
The Delegates Gathering-A Caucus of
the Tillmavites-What was Done-The
Probablo Action of the Conetion.
COLU31BIA, SePt 10.- The August
convention was the first State Conveu
.ion I ever attended. This is the see
ond. Nearly all of the delegates ar
rived in the city yesterday and last
inight. There are also here quite a
number-who are not delegates.
THE TWO Co31r EnS Co 31PROyISE.
Yesterday afternoon a conference was
held between Col. Irby and Col. HOYt
at which a compromise was agreed
upon, which was endorsed by the re
spective committees that met after
wards. It is agreed that both Cols
Hoyt-and Irby shall occupy the Speak
er's place to-morrow, and Col. Hoyt
shall call the Convention to order and
have the Secretary of his committee to
read the call for this Convention and
then Col. Irby shall have his Secretary
to read the call issued by his committee
ratifying the Hoyt call, and that nei
ther shall nominate a temporary chair
man, but that nomination shall be
made from the floor and the gentleman
makingthe nomination shall put the
motion himself, and the gentleman so
nominated shall take the speaker's
place without any words of introduc
tion from either Cols. -Hoyt or Irby.
The gentleman selected to make this
nomination is W. D. Evans, of Marl
boro. This action of the two commit
tees was stated to the caucus last night
and and agreed to without opposition.
I understand that there is some oppo
sition to this on the part of some of the
Straightouts." They claim that Col.
Hoyt is State Chairman, and that it is
his duty to call the Convention to
order, and that he should not recognize
the Irby committee. The compromise
strikes me as the best thing that could
be done, and will meet the approval of
the conservative men on both sides.
There is also some oljection to this plan
on the part of some of the Tillmanites,
as they claim that Irby is State Chair
man and it is his duty to call the Con
vention to order.
A caucus of the Tillmanites was held
last night in the hall of the House of
Representatives. It was' held with
closed doors- and only delegates or such
as could furnish proper credentials
were admitted. Hon. J. A. Sligh was
made president, and J. T. Duncan, sec
retary, both Newberry inen. Maj. H.
A. Meetze, of Lexington, was selected
' as temporary chairman of the Conven
tion to-day, and he will likely be per
manent chairman. No secretary was
selected, but it is likely that J. T. Dun
-can-will be one of them.
Dr. Pope offered.a resolution that the
caucus prepare a slate for the Conven
tion to-day, but after some discussion
the resolution was indefinitely post
poned. -This action was taken proba
bly from the fact that< there are more
than one candidate for some of the
zoffices on the Tillman ticket, an' 1
caucus did not care ta antagonize the
rins of any of the candidates and
thus throw the responsibility of de
ciding on the Convention.
The matter of the contesting dele
gates from Sumter rud Fairfield was
also before the cauccus, and the evi
deuce of the Tillman delegates was
heard and a motion made to seat them
on the Convention to-day, but the mo
tion was tabled after debate, inasmiuch
as the members of the caucus desired
to hear both sides befo-e deciding, and
this matter will be settled by the Con
venuion. without having been prne
judged by a caucus, I understand
there will also be a contesting delega
tion from Berkeley.
Another matter that created some
discussion in'the caucus was the re
cent appointment of commissioners of
election by the Governor. It is claimed
that he has appointed all anti-Tillman
ites and without following the custom
-heretofore observed of consulting the
var-ious county chairmen and receiving
suggestions from them. A committee
of five was appointed with Mr. Gray,
of Greenville, as chairman to wait
--upon the Governor and ask him to re
- al his appointments, I suppose with a
view of having some Tillman men ap
pointed. I (10 not know whether this
matter will come before t he convention
The caucus was in session abo.ut three
As to the tieket that will be nomi
nated, there seems to be little or no
dloubt about fiv~e of themi. They are:
For Governor--B. Rt. Tillman, of
Lieutenant-Governor -- Eugene B.
Gary, of Abbeville.
Attorney-General--Y. J. Pope, or
Secretary of State--J. E. Tindal, of
- Adjutant and Inspector Genera!
Hugh L. Farley, o,f Spartanburg.
It wa stated positively last night
that Capt. Courtenay would not ac
cept the nomination for treasurer, and
the impression seemied to be that Dr.
WV. T. C. Bates, of Orangeburg, had
been decided upon. I understand that
Dr. Pope was urged by a number of
dlelegates to acept the nomination for
Comptroller-General, but positively re
fused. It was thought that Mr. Benj.
B. Stokes, of Colleton, wvould likely be
nominated. For Superintendent of
Education I find that Col. Rice has a
number of friends among the delegates
and I had about made up my mind
-that his chances for renomination were
good, but those who know say it is
likely to be D. A. Townsend, of Union.
That I believe concludes all the places'
to be filied.
Igwaasreported on the train yester
~ em~ning down that Col. D. K.Norris,
a candidate for Congress from the
bhird Distriet, and who was on- board,
~would be a candidate for Lieutenant
~Governor, but the boom hardly lasted
until we got to Columbia. The aptis, I
suppose, will put a ticket before the
of the Convention. They are to hold
a conference this morning.
I think after the convention is per
manently organized its action will be
harmonious and quickly done. It will
meet to-day at 12 o'clock and nothing
will likely be done further than the
election of temporary officers and the
appointment of a committee on creden
The adoption of a platform and the
nomination of a State ticket will not be
reached until to-night. It ought not
to take long to do this as there is no
chance of a deadlock. Of the Newber
ry delegation Messrs. Capers, Hardy
a-nd Hughey are absent, but Messrs. C.
L. Blease, P. H. Koon and S. M. Dun
can are here to take their places.
The proportion of Tillman and anti
Tillman delegates in this convention is
about the same as it was in the August
Convention. The delegates are largely
the same as in the August Convention.
The proceedings of the caucus as
given above I think are about correct.
I believe that all the candidates are
here. The candidates for Congress
from the Fourth District are also all
here. E. H. A.
THE TEMPORARY ORGANIZATION.
COLUMBIA, September 10-2.30 p. m.
The State Convention was called to
order by Col. James A. Hoyt at 12.05
p. m., and Secretary Wilie Jones read
the call. Col. J. L. M. Irby then called
the Convention to order and Secretary
G. Duncan Bellinger read the call of
Irby's committee confirming the call
of the old committee.
Maj. H. A. Meetze, on motion of Mr.
Evans, was elected temporary chair
man, and J. T. Duncan, of Newberry,
and G. D. Bellinger, of Barn well, were
elected temporary secretaries.
Col. A. C. Haskell, on behalf of the
Richland delegation and others, entered
a protest against the compromise made
between the two committees as irregu
lar, illegal and void.
On motion of Dr. Sampson Pope, a
committee on credentials, composed of
one delegate from each county, was
appointed. Rev. J. A. Sligh represents
Newberry on the committee.
The Convention then adjourned to
meet at 4 p. m.
There are contests from Berkeley,
Sumter ahd Fairfield, and the creden

WVAsmYOTON, Sept. 1, 1890.-To the
Baltimore Sun: In a dispatch of yester
day from this place one of your corre
spondents has placed a construction on
a few remarks made.to him by myself
which is utterly erroneous. I did say,
with no idea, howevar, that I was
being interviewed, that the recent meet
ing in Columbia was merely a con
ference, with no power to make any
compromise, and that the two factions
in the State had not come together. I
expressed my fear that a conflict of
authority might occur when the regular
convention met, but I said not one
word which could possibly justify your
correspondent in saying or supposing
that I entertained the slightest idea of
entering upon a contest for re-election
to the Senate. That matter is in the
hands of the people of South Carolina,
and they must settle it without any
advice or suggestion from myself. I
have never asked for an office, and I
eertainly shall not do so now. So that

ALL ITS TRO. LE END)ED .
rhe Three C P Said to boe AL Solid a a
- [From the News and Courier,.",d]
A prominent and well-informed
financier yesterday stated to a repor er
for the News and Courier that, in
3pite of all reports and some appear
ance.z to the contrary, so far front being
on the eve of collapse the Three L'A
Railroad Company ison a sound finan
cial bas:s. The company has more re
6curces at the presen. time than ever
before. It is true that for some months
the operatiols of the company in South
Carolina have beet embarrassed for the
want - f r ady money, but this has
been due to local and temporary causes.
Contracts for the completion of a large
sention of the road that had to be fin
ished in Tennessee within a limited
time to save valuable rights required
extraordinary payments, and these, in
the stringency of the money market in
New York that has prevailed for seve
ral months, made it difficult for the
company to realize upon its large re
source and to meet all the demands
in this section with those in the West.
The section referred to has been com
pleted, adding still more to the re
sources of the company, atid, at the
same time, the money na rket is easier,
so that the road's difficultie, are about
over. As evidence of this. work on
the rest of the line in Tennessee and
Virginia is being rapidly pushed, opera
tions on the Augusta division are being
continued, many obligations have been
met, and all the indebtedness of the
company wili soon be paid off.
When asked if the troubles over the
township bonds were ended, the gentle
man stated that he thought that they
particularly were, though not nomi
nally. Notice of appeal from the de
cision of the United States Circuit
Court had been given, but the appeal
bo'nds had not been filed, and be did
not believe that they could be perfected.
The difficulty has been to find sureties.
The decision of the United States Cir
cuit Court following so closely that of
the Supreme Court of South Carolina,
both of which were unanimous, makes
it almost certain that the Supreme
Court of the United States, if the cases
ever reach that tribunal, will sustain
the validity of the bonds, and that the
only result of more litigation will be a
bigger bill to pay. Under the circum
stances, and knowing that their finarr
cial responsibility will be subjected to
rigid scrutiny, and that they will render
themselves liable to accruing interest,
costs, and probably to damages for
promoting vexatious litigation with no
means of idemnifying themselves from
the -townships or anybody - else, and
with nothing to be gained, gentlemen
are not rushing forward to assume the
position of bondsmen.
Besides, the possession of the bonds
at this time would not affect the com
pany. Had it secured them three
months ago they would not have bene
fited it, for the embarrassment arose,
not from -lack of resources, but from the
difficulty of real izing upon those already
in possession. Money could have been
raised at any time by inakinga sacrifice,
and many of the friends of the com
pany have blamed it for not doing this.
But whether right or wrong, such has,
been its policy, and upon this policy
the company has lived through its
troubles, with the result that all of its
securities will in future possess a much
higher value than they could have had
if any of them had been sacrificed to
meet a temporary exigency.
Having persisted in t his policy under
the most trying conditions, the comn
pany would not permit itself to be
forced to compromise these debts, if
the bond cases are carried up, and thus
the only reason for an appeal falls.
The company has already sustained all
the damage that can come from with
holding the bonds and now finds itself
in a position to carry them as a good
paying investment, with the certainty
of drawing an income from -ny gentle
men who may be s . "urortunate as to
become s Ieties on the appeal bonds.
Inct, these bonds are valuable assets
under any possible conditions. Even
the failure of the comi any would not
release the townships nor their sure
ties from these obligations.
"No, sir,,' concluded the gentleman,
"I do not think that any financially
responsible person will care to pull
these chestnuts out.of the fire for some
body else. If my hands were in the
fire now I should pull it out and leave
An Editor Nominates IIimself.
[From the Greenville News.]
Misguided opponents of Candidate A.
B. Williams, just announced as a can
didate for the Legislature, are accusing
him of inconsistency. They say he has
persistently declared that he would not
bea candidate for anything and has
now gone squarely back oni that declar
But the truth is, Mr. Williams is
run on a platfornm of inconsistency, and
the motto of his canvas is "motley's
the only wear"-an expression origin
aly introduced by one Shakspeare, now
deceased, and the significance whereof
lies in the bearings of it. He has seen
individuals achieve the topmost pin
nacles of popular glory and become
objects of worship by the simple pro
cess ofsaying they would not do cer
tain things and doing them, p)roclaimi
ing principles and then going squarely
back on them. With that example
before him he appears to have felt
justified in the assumption that the
more thoroughly inconsistent he can
be, the more readily he can break
promises and abandon p)rinuciples, the
more profusely he can blackguard his
betters, the faster he canm take the back
track, the more readily he ca n alternate
from swagger to whine and from the
pretence of patriotism to the fact of
bossism the better his chances for elec
tion will be. Earnestly and consistent ly
opposing Williams' election, we urge
that that his opponents do not under
take to beat him with any such argu
ment as has inconsistency, this year.
There is an abundance of other rea
sons why he should not be chosen to
represent the county of Greenville in
the Legislature of South Carolina. He
is a stockholder in the Greenville Daily
News; he is guil y of other political and
personal crimes and misdemeanors too
tedious for detailed recitation. A matter
of less moment in tihe present campaign,
but not worthy of collateral and inci
dental consideration, is the fact that he
is a fool. Mr. W. M1. Rodgers says so
and if there is a man on this earth who
ought to be a good, sure, trustworthy
judge of a fool it is Mr. Rodgers. F.ur
thermore, he has about as much fitness
(and desire) to be a menmberof the next
GJeneral Assembly as he has to be the
leader of a Wesleyan Methodist nmis
sionary emibassy to Timbuctoo.
We have no hesitation, therefore, in
advising every voter to seratch Mr.
Williams deeply,darkly andl vehement
ly whenever he wishes to vote for any
cndidate for the House beside Mr.
Bellinger. Use Wiliiams only when
you desire to engage in the reprehmensi
ble practice of "single shotting" and
not otherwise. Swallow Fulenwider,
absorb B3urgziss, but in the name of the
purity of the press and any other con
sideration that mtay occur to the voter
let the name of Williams be elimiated.

Colonel Ashbury Coward was born
in Charleston County and is about fifty
six years old. In 1854 he was graduted
from the South Carolina Military
Academy, and in 1855, together with
Gen. Micah Jenkins he established the
King's Mountain Military School, near
Yorkville. These gentlemen conducted
the school successfully until the break

Colonel Coward was a gallant soldier
and was promoted to the Colonelcy of
General Jenkin's old Regiment, the
Fifth South Carolina. General Lee in

compliment to Colonel Coward, saying
that he was one of the best Colonels in
At the close of the war Colonel Cow
