THE DEMOCRATIC NOINAT1ONS.
As the Hera'd and News i- being
closed up for the press on this the first
day of the National Democratic gath
ering at Chicago, the indications are
unmistakable, though they have in no
wise been unexpected, that the great
convention will to-morrow annouice,
on the first ballot, the nomination of
Grover Cleveland as the enthusiastic
outcome of its patriotic labors. This
result has been looked for, with widely
different kinds of expectancy, however,
by both great national parties, Mr.
Cleveland's wonderful hold upon the
consciences and support of the masses
of the American people being patent to
all. It is quite as plain that, contrary
to the experiences of great statesmen
generally, -Mr. Cleveland's popularity
has clung to him through every phase
of his public career, and his party has
now, with even greater persistency
than before, for the third time sum
mioned him to leadership as its candi
date for he Presidency. No Democrat
having 'faith in his organization and
its great principles will doubt his tri
umphant election. The signs of the
times so presage.
The dispatches from Chicago also
foreshadow the selee,ion of Governor
Gray of Indiana for Vice-President.
The next issue of the News and Herald
with contain the whole story.
It looks like Cleveland at Chicago.
He has over ->00 votes, which is a ma
jority, but under the two-thirds rule
it will take inerly 6n votes to noml
inate. Every eiiurt is being used to
beat Cleveland. It seems to be Cleve
land against the field, or the field
against Cleveland. The Hill men are
using every means at their command
to defeat the nomination of Cleveland.
One of the strangest arguments, it
seems to us, is the claim that Cleve
land will cairy the independent vote
of New York. That we have always
considered a v4rv important factor to
Democratic success in New York, and
the fact that Cleveland will carry this
vote seems to us wouli be in his favor.
Besides, all the Tam many men say
they will stand by the party, it mtat
ters not who is nominated. So much
the reason then that Cleveland shouid
be nominated if he can carry the inde
pendent vote. He is undoubtedly the
choice of two-thirds of the Democrats
of the country. But there is no telling
what will be done until it is done.
The Register almost goes into hys
terics over the report that Col. You
mans had a pistol on his person at
Kingstree, but if the Register has ever
said a word about Attorney-General
McLaurin having one at Greenville w. e
have failed to see it. Besides, General
3IcLaurin was asked about that pistol
the other day, and his reply to his
questioner was: "It's none of your
business." The Register surely did
not see any of these reports.
The habit of carrying a pistol is not
only wrong, but is against the law, and
we do not approve it; but why agonize
so over the rumor that Col. Youmnans
had a pistol when Geni. 3IcLaurin
says "It's none of your business," if
he, the highest peace officer in the
State, goes stalking around over the
State with one in his hip pocket'.
President Stokes threatens a bolt
from the Democracy if Cleveland is
nominated. MIr. Stokes is entirely of1
the track when he says any large per
cent, of the Democrats in South Cato
lina will go into the Third party in case
Mr. Cleveland is nominated; though it
would be in accord with the teachings
of Mir. Stokes himself. He says, howv
ever, that he is not going into the
party himself; which, of itself, is pretty
conclusive evidence that MIr. Stokes
does not believe the Third party would
have any great followving in South
Carolina; for, if he believed it, he
would be going along with the move
Our Governor says 5e, as Governor,

quest of the State Prohibition Conven
tion recently held in Columbia by
placing a box at each primary election
precinct in wbhich the Democratic elec
tors may express their wishes upon the
questioni of Prohibition or no Prohibi
ion. As the chairmian of the State
Democracy I can only recognize the
request of the State Prohibition coo
vention, atnd while I think it would
have been better to carry out the idea
of catechising the candicates, yet I re
alize that Mr. Nettles could not bind
the State convention which met after
wards. Conseguently I shall bave the
boxes placed over thme State, without
demanding any conditions of the Pro
hibition element. If any un pleasant
complicationts arise, I think the Demo
cracy wvill bie st rong enough to take
care of itself.

[Special to News and Courier.]
(ot.IlA%, .Iuie 2'.-There is soie
cheerin g news to-dlay from the tield of
battle in regard to the Conservative
cause. It seems that there has been
almost a complete change of feeling inl
all parts of the State.
'1o-lay State Chairman I)ibble, of
the Democratic executive committee,
arrived in the city and says that he is
on his way to a conference of the Con
servatives of several counties, which is
to be held in the southeastern portion
of the State to-day. The conference is
but one of a series of such conference.;
alrtady held in various sections of the
Mr. Dibble is known to be one of the
quietest and most successful workers
in the State, and when he makes up
his mind to talk he generally knows
what he says and is a>le to prove it.
He spent to-day in the Conservative
headquarters iei this city, and he and
Secretary J. Q. Marshall went over very
carefully the reports of the progress of
the eamtpaigl in all portions of the
State. The work was arduous, but
well worth the I ime consumed. When
questioned later by the correspondent
of the News and Courier lie talked
very freely. He said that there had
been, as shown by the reports, "sub
stantial gains over the State." He
stated that ev; ry series of these reports
invariably improve on the estimates
previously made by himself and the
In regard to the result of the cam
paign meetings so far held, he said:
"So far as we are concerned we are
abundantly satistied with the results
of those meetings. We are getting re
ports from the field behind each meet
ing, and the seed sown at every point
is taking root and developing with great
rapidity. We are now much more
hopeful than ever before. We certain
ly and surely expect to carry the State
without any trouble. This is not an
idle boast, hut is a statement based on
the facts before us. The State is now
thoroughly organized with the exeep
tion of only one or two counties. You
can say that I don't think that there
is the shadow of a doubt that the ma
jority of the white people of this State
are unalterably opposed to the re-elec
tion of B. R. Tillman as Governor of
South Carolina. The only problem
that now confronts us is to get the peo
ple out to the polls at the August pri

I tried the CUTrcuRA Rx~EDIES and they did

everything I could think of, and finally I tried the
doctor, but nothing helped me. After reading your
wivertisemer.t, I thought I would try C'TrICcaA

week after I began using them my sures dried up,
and I have not had them since.

Cuticura Never Failed
I have been using your CLTiccaA REMEDrES for
several years, especially the CuyI'cuaA, and it has
never failed to do what is claimed for t. It is about
the only remedy I keep in my house all the time.
I would not be without it for money. I think it is
the best skin cure in the world. I use It for all
kinds of sores, new or old, and It always cures
them. Paor. J. W. PORTIS,
