NO NOMINATIONS MADE.
The convention of Democrats that
was Ealled to meet in Columbia on
Monday and to which Newberry sent
delegates was held.
The convention was called to con
sider and in its wisdom deeide what
was best to be done. One of the chief
questions to be discussed was the one
of nominating a State ticket to be
voted for in opposition to the one to be
nominated tolay by the State conven
tion. On that 'i a
News and Newberry County are on
record. Our delegates had positive and
A oonference was held before the con
vention met to consult together and
determine upon the best course to be
pursued after getting the united wis
dom of those wbo'were present. The
convention was composed for the most
part of earnest, patriotic men, who
wanted only to subserve the best in
terests of South Carolina.' After fully
conferring and consulting it was decid
ed not to make nominations at least
for the present.
The Herald and News is glad this de
cision was reached. Our opinion is un
changed that it would have been a
great mistake to have nominated a
State ticket and really we do not be
lieve that any good practically will re
t from holding'the convention at
tbiStim. -et it is a fact that many
good and true men from all parts of the
State were heartily in favor of making
a straight fight in the general election,
and many of them quiet and deter
mined men, who are not seeking office
or political preferment.
We sincerely trust that the conven
tion which meets to-day will be m
erate and temperate in tone, and as a
Democratic convention, will do noth
ing unDemocratic, so as to give excuse
for another convention. This is a criti
cal period in the history of this State,
and great responsibility rests upon the
organized Democratic party and the
members of the convention to meet to
day should be patriotic enough to -rise
above prejudice and. factional divis
ions and plant itself flatly and squarely
upon Democratic principles.
The Herald and News does not want
to see another convention called,and we
hope there will be no provocation for
Our people have had enough of poli
ties and conventions and we want to
get to business. There is no sense in
this continued strife. There is need to
bear and forbear with one another. The
conditions now are not similar to the
conditions in 1876, and-ast white men
and brethren who differ let us settle
these differences. Much depends on
the ,action of the State Convention
which meets to-day. May it be coin

other counties as well.
If the State Convention which meets
to-day'will just adopt a Democratic
platform and put the State Democracy
in line with the National Democratic
party all will be well. Otherwise we
very much fear there is trouble ahead,
and lots of it. The convention which

peace and quiet in this State, and we
say this standing square against the

nomination of another State ticket

The convention on Saturday did the
wise thing in putting itself against
Snominiations and it was the united wis
dom of a majority of the delegates who
assembled in Columbia on Monday
that it would be unwise to nominate a
State ticket. It was well that New
berry sent delegates, for if those-coun
ties that opposed nominations had-re
mnained away, nominations would have
been precipitated and a hupeless and
useless fight been forced.upon us.

summed up the situation by saying,

said "that it was most critical and
ioubtful," others again were of the
opinion that there was no question
regarding the sentiment 6f the Con

jority at this time is favorable to nom

gratifying circumstance is that there
is the fullest and freeest discussion o:

The Jerome Hotel was the rendez

of the leading delegates were staying
at the Jerome, and this must have been
the inducement for the delegates to

bied early. It was one of the strong
et here and was active against making

vould be inexpedient at this juncture.

During the morning, and before

~gitimate question for discussion before

CHBERLESTON AGAINST NOMINATIONS.
The Charleston delegation was as
free as the air. It came without in
structions and went around, with its
ears and eyes open, to see what-was the
outlook. Gen. McCrady was at the
head of the delegation, and it is an
nounced that he is unalterably opposed
to nominations at this time. The
delegation is free to conviction, but,
with the lights before it prior to the
conference being held, thought that it
was best not to make nominations. Mr.
Fishburne, of the delegation, is said to
be inclined to making nominations if
there is any prospect of electing the
ticket put out in the field.
The Orangeburg delegation so -far as
could be learn, d was !diametrically
opposed to making nominations, and
some of the delegates from that county
say that they came here for the sole
purpose of opposing nominations being
made at this time.
REPORTER PRICE AND HIS TEMPORARY
Perhaps one of the most interesting
incidents of the preliminary caucus
was the discovery and ejection of the
enterprising reporter of the Register.
When the caucus was called to order at
5.30 it was desired that there should be
a free conference among the delegates.
The call announced that fact, and those
reporters who asked for admission
were unceremoniously allowed to listen
to the proceedings, but Mr. Price
thought he would run his own news
paper camp aign. Some of the delegates
anticipated such a move and a com
mittee of investigation went to work.
The first place visited was the foot of
the hall of the House of Representatives.
There some unknown man was found,
but the committee was not satisfied that
this was the only man on the lookout.
While in search for some one else one
of the committee broke a bele through
be ceiling of the hall and had a narrow.
escape from failing to the floor. The
committee kept up its search, and after
awhile found Mr. Price perched upon
the roof trying to cover the trap door.
It remains to be seen whether the
Register's efforts were of any avail. The
discovery was made before the Conven
tion had organized. That is the way
of the reporter.
After considerable debate at 2 o'clock
a resolution was introduced which
solved the problem satisfactorily, and
after several fine speeches, by a vote of
120 to 104, nominations for State offices
were postponed but not abandoned, the
sense of the meeting being to await
certain developments. The vote upon
the question of nominations was as fol

THE RESULT SATISFACTORY.
It would be very interesting to give
the world what made the turn in the
tide, but that will be developed later
and be satisfactory to all. As it is the
result of the caucus is entirely satisfac
tory to everyone.
TH E CONVENTION CALLED TO ORDER.
At S o'clock the caucus adjourned and
the regular true blue Convention met.
Upon motion Gen. Johnson Hagood
was selected as chairman of the regular
Convention. He thanked the Conven
tion for the honor and remarked that

Just as soon as the Convention was
organized Chairman Carwile, of the
conference, took tbe floor and proposed
to the Convention the resolutions that
had solved the problem for the Conven
tion. They were not read in Conven
tion, but were given the press. They
are as follows:
MAJOR CARWILE'S RESOLUTIONS.
Whereas, men prominent in the
affairs of the State, claiming to be De
mocrats, seine of whom are now seeking
nomination for high offices as Demo
crats, have deelared themselves bound
by the principles announced at a Con
vention held at Ocala in the State of
Florida on the 3d day of 'Decemnber,
1890, as paramount to all other political
principles whatsoever, which principles

And whereas, othersso now claiming
to be Democrats have allied themselves
with members of-a new party styled
the Populist party, and have declared
themselves ready to abandon the Demo

favorable to the success of the so-called
Populist party shall present itself;
And whereas, under such circumi
stances it becomes the duty of the De
mocratic pry in this State, through
its officia representatives in Conven

position in regard to these disturbing

of tL'e State, demands of the Conven

under the call -f the executive commit

as heretofore organized, explicitly to
declare the true and loyal allegiance of
the whole Democratic party of the
State of South Carolina to the princi

Democratic party, and to repudiate and
rescind the action of the State Con

one to office who is not in full accord
with the principles of the National
Democracy, nor one who acknowledges

the principles of the Populist party.
3. That the nomination by the Con

THE CONVENTION ADJOURNS.
As there was nothing more to be
done at 3.15 a. m., the Convention
adjourned, subject to the call of the
chairman. The actual Convention did
not sit for over a quarter of ao hour
and was a model for a harmonious con
vention. Indeed, the whole thing was
done in the most decent and sober
The division as to the advisability of
making nominations at this time was
sharp, and not until the vote had fairly
progressed did many of the delegates
see that the prevailing idea of the
evening would be defeated. To two
speeches especially, as well as to the
aracter of the resolutions, which by
he way were from Charleston, was the
turn in the tide brought about. It was
a complete surprise to many, but no
one is sore about it.
There was a greaj deal of earnestness
about the Convention, and when the
banner is raised, if at all, there will be
a gallant and loyal army to march
under its folds. There is no question
When the next Convention is held
it is hoped every county will be
represented. During the Convention
Editor Williams introduced, but sub
sequently withdrew, a resolution re
garding the Constitutional Convention.

their homes on the early morning

A Trip to the Springs.
To the Editoi of The Herald and
News: I feel like I want to give you a
short history of my trip to West
Springs and Glenn Springs, which was
brief but very delightful. West Springs
is good water and certainly did my wife
a great deal of good. She improved
rapidly. We used both waters more or
We left West Springs last Friday,
the 14th, with the understanding that
we spend the day and night with our
nephew Petis D. Boyd, who lives near
Cross Keys, on our way home. On ae
count of late start and rough road it
was after 12 o'clock when we drove up
to his house.. He was there waiting
and watching for us; he met us with a
broad and hospitable smile; helped me
unharness and then* turned my stock
into stall with the troughs loaded with
corn and racks- filled with fodder; then
to the house, and after a kiss of greet
ing, an hour's rest, we were invited to
the table, which was loaded with good
tbings, such as kid, hashed~and baked,
fried chicken, rice, vegetables, honey,
pies, and milk and butter. "Pet"
knew I was fond of kid as his 'wife
prepared it, so he dressed one for my
special benefit. Now, you may guess
how we indulged ourselves with the
dinner after drinking the West and
Glenn's water about two weeks. Well,
after I stopped eating; I said to C--,

me." From the table we repaired to the

Ls,but not least, my attention was
directed to his old milch cow, which
has gone with him to all the circuits
he has served, four years on Clinton
circuit, four at Jonesville, and this is
the third year at Cross Keys. He said
this cow had given him from two to
three gallons of milk per day for more
than ten years. I want to make a rea
sonable estimate of her value. Milking
her 250 days per year,and over 10 years,
two gallons per day, would amount to
5,000 gallons of milk, besides the hun
dreds of pounds of butter. He has sold
about $100 worth of heifers and beef,
and now has two Lilce heifers, one with
a young calf. He thinks he can sell
them at $25 each. She surely has been
a valuable cow and is still good-look
