STATE PRESS ASSOCIATION.
Immediately upon my return from
the meeting of the State Press Associ
ation at Georgetown, I had to leave to
attend the meeting of the North Caro
lina Synod at Enochville, N. C. I re
turned this morning, after travel
ing all night, very tired. Still, I want
to say something very briefly of the
meeting at Georgetown, and express
my appreciation of tht kindness re
ceived at the hands of the good -people
of this beautiful and historic old town.
These annual gatherings of the ed
itors of the State always result in good.
An exchange of opinions, and a dis
cussion of the practical, as well as the
theoretical, phase of the profession, will
enlarge one's views of things, not to
speak of the social features.
- The hospitality of the citizens of
Georgetown seems to have had no
bounds. A committee of the Board
of Trade, with the president, Mr.
S. Ehricb in charge, met the
train at Lane's and took us in
charge, and we were entertained
right royally at private residences.
Of this special committee was Mr.
Josiah Doar, editor of the Times,
and also Sheriff of Georgetown. This
committee, under the direction of the
Board of Trade, had entire charge of
the entertainment and did their work
The association was well attended
and much interest manifested, and
many practical questions discussed.

A PLEASING INCIDENT OXTH
-GThRGETOWN, S. C., May 1.-At the
State Press Association banquet last
night Mr. E. W. Stephens, president of
the National Editorial Association, re
sponded to the toast of "Our Country,"
and in the course of his speech an allu
sion to Gen. Wade Hampton brought
forth the wildest enthu'siasm from his
bearers. Indeed, every reference to the
great hero evoked loud and ringing
cheers. The assembled company testi
5ed its noble sentiments of love and
idmiration for the distinguished ex
Senator; and every word of straightout,
.enuine Democratic doctrine arousod
,he most pronounced approval.
Truly, the press banquet was an old
ashioned Democratic assemblage, and
,vould scarcely have afforded any pleas
ire to a latt.er-day political faith.
The assocation appropriated $100 to

of the unterrified democracy of Charle

will be heard all over the land. Th
city denocratic convention which mE
in Hibernian hall at noon consisted <
110 out of the 114 delegates elected. I
the ranks of the delegates were man
of the men who answered to the rol
call in 187, and quite a number of th
young democrats who have grown u
since. The object of the conventio
was to endeavor to heal the breach no)
existing in the party. it was preside
over at the outset by Major Edwar
Willis, the chairman of the municipf
democratic executive committee, wh
in calling the conventiou to ordej
"I believe the best interests or Lh

your deliberations will be such as ma'
spare the citizens of Charleston ani
dissension, bitterness and excitenen
likely to grow out of the long vampaigi
which is before us.
"It is the duty and privilege of th,
municipal democracy to so alter ou
rules as to adopt whatever there ma'
be in the rules of the State democrati
committee which will enable us to ac

We owe it to the members of the de

On motion of State Senator A. T

from each ward, was appointed to con
sider and report what changes, if any
were necessary in the constitution o

other words every concession was madE
to the demands of the alleged reformers.
After electing an executive committeE
the convention adjourned subject to a
recall of the committee.
Another convention under the auspi
3es of "Ockty" Cohen will be held on
Monday next. At this convention the
delegates will be selected by the demo
,ratic ward clubs recently organized in
the city and it is expected that a muni
aipal ticket will be put out.
The regular democracy will not nom
inate its ticket until the fall. It
should be mentioned that a considerable
aumber of the democrats of Charleston
Jave enrolled themselves in the newly
>rganized ward clubs. It is not improb
ible that the may convention will be
,aptured by the regular democrats,
>etter known as "ringsters." There
tre in the city not over 3,500 registered
7oters, whites and blacks, democrats
tnd republicans. At the democratic
5rimaries yesterday nearly 1,300 votes
were polled. No report was made to.

who voted at the ward club meetings

largely made up of solid citizens. Thi

some weeks to plunge the pestiferous u
fly into the Centennial ointment. The t
Centennial committee pledg d the peo- o
ple of the State at the inception of the i
great undertaking that there should be t
no politics in the affair. Occurrences
and publications within the past few
days, however, indicated to the com
mittee that a few people, at least, did
not intend to help the commnittee to
e.rry out its wishes. *Therefore the
committee passed to-night the follow- tl
ing resolution, which was given out

the centennial there be o political li
matters nor any dev s of the same l
which shall give e centennial cele- P
bration an itical aspect. It is to be fl

BENNETSVILLE, S. C., May 1
Judge C. P. Townsend delivered
Alliance address to a small crowd, L
Saturday evening, about nine mi
north of town. His speech was a
r4de of abuse against the money pow,
and calculated to prejudice the count
people against the town people. I
told his audience that the .farmers
Marlboro Covnty were financial
worse oft now than they were fifte
years ago, and told them that t
Bennettsville people were buildii
brick stores, fine residences and layil
off elegant flower yards with t
money which they should have. E
speech was a continual chain of e
travagant assertions, calculated to
much harm, and will, if believed, bre
much prejudice and animosity. It
unfortunate that the Alliance will
vite such speakers to address them, .
fortunately the citizens of Marlboro i
no longer influenced by such speech
