Andrews of Raleigh.
[Columbia Register, 25th.]
A meeting of the Board of Directors
of the Columbia and Greenviile and
the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta
Railroads was held yesterday at the
office of the president to take action on
the resignation of President V. E. Mc
Colonel McBee made a v.rbal tender
of his resignation of the presidency. of
the road, stating that he did so with
much regret, but that his duties as
General Superintendent of the Georgia
Railroad made it a necessity in justice
to himself and the road'.
On behalf of the directors of the Co
lumbia and-Greenville Road Colonel F.
W. McMaster oflered the following
Resolved, That the T)irectors "of the
Columbia and Greenville road have
.heard with regret the necessity of a
separation from their popular Presi
dent, Col. V. E. McBee, and under the
circumstances are forced reluctantly to
yield to his request to resign.
Colonel W. C. Sibley of Augusta, on
behalf the Directors of the Charlotte,
Columbia and Augusta Road, offered a
resolution of the sorrow felt at parting
with so kind and efficient an officer,
and that the resignation be accepted
On motion of Colonel Sibley, Colonel
A. B. AndreWs was elected a director,
and on motion of Colonel MIcMaster,
Colonel Andrews was elected to the
presidency of the two roads.
President Andrews is -probably the
best know railroad manager in the
South. He was for a long time Third

D-mville system in the South, with
headquarters at Raleigh, N. C., where
he will still continue his headquarters.
A DUAL CONVENTION.
The Charleston Democrats Now Have Two
[Special to the Register.]
CHARLESTON, S. C., July 28.-The
unterrified Democracy of Charleston
went to pieces to-day without blood
shed, but with more bitterness than
was ever kt.own even in the days of
active Republicanism. A dual conven
tion was held and two executive comn
mittees are now in the field. The re
formers with large numbers of bogus
delegates met in another par. of the
city and marched down to Hibernian
Hall in a body headed by ex-Mayor
W. A. Courtenay. They rushed in the
hall, capturing most of the chairs, and
started in to elect Courtenay chairman,
before the chairman of the Democratic
Executive Committee had called the
convention to order. The chairman,
however, called the body to order and
then left the chair with nobody to pre
side over the convention. The regulars
jumped in then and elected B. F. Mc
Cabe chairman and captured the books,
records and gavel. The reformers then
elected Courtenay chairman and the
two conventions p)roceeded on with
Futile efforts were made by conserva
Lives to bring about a compromise.
The regulars offered to elect a reforme
:hairman if both McCabe and Courte
nay would vacate. Courtenay declined
and the two conventions went on, both
n the same hall, and elected each an
executive committee. WN. A. Boyle
was elected chairman by the regulars
mud F. D. Jervey by the reformers.
The sp)irit in the party is nowv re
;arded as hopeless and feeling between
the two wings is intensely bitter. It is
regarded as almost certain that twc
:ickets will be in the 1ield for t1 e
nayoralty. Courtenay probably wvill
ead the reform wing anid Bryan the
regular. Both wings will endeavor to
