ince his defeat he has shown that he

THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION.
The Meeting on Saturday-Newberry In Fa
vor of Standing by Democratic Prin
c1ples, But Opposed to Another
State Ticket at This Time.
The mass meeting of Democrats, as
called by Mr. ThomasW. Carwile, met
in the Courthouse here on Saturday
last. There were about one hundred
persons present, some, perhaps. only as
Col. 0. L. Schumpert called the meet
ing to order and nominated Col. J. C.
S. Brown as chairman. He waselected.
Mr. W. Aug. Shealy was elected seere
Col. Brown, on taking the chair,
said this was the second time he had
been called upon to preside over a con
vention of Demo -rats, and he thanked
the convention for th-) honor con
ferred. This body of Democrats had
come here to consider matters that
would be for the good of the party and
the State, and he considered and felt it
an honor to be called upon to preside
over their deliberations. He hoped
they would go at the business In hand
with earnestness and conservatism.
We should organize and be Democrats
and stand up to Democratic principles,
and then t bose who do not think as we
do will know where we are at.
The secretary read the call as issued
by Maj. Carwile.
Senator Mower said that, in order to
bring something- definite before the
convention he would pffer the follow
ing resolutions, which' were seconded
by Maj. M. H. Gary:
Be it resolved that it is.the sense of
1. That such steps should be taken as
will result in the organization of the
Democratic party in strict alignment
with sound Democratic doctrine as set
out in the National Democratic plat
form of 1892, and in keeping the State
in the Democratic column In 1896.
2. That a State ticket should not be
3. Thate the convention called for the
17th should adjourn without taking
any action in the premises to some day
later than the 19th.
4. That delegates should be elected
to the convention on the 17th in entire
sympathy with these resolutions.
5. That the delegates elected under
these resolutions are hereby instructed
to withdraw from. the convention in
the event nominations are determined
It was decided to take up the resolu
Dr. McIntosh said that he would
like to have the resolutions modified.
He was not in favor of binding the
hands of the delegates to the extent of
withdrawing from the convention in
case nominations were determined
Prof. Evans said they only gave an
expression of the sense of the meeting,
and unless the last was adopted the
delegates would not be bound.
Dr. McIntosh: 1 It strikes me we are
going Into a movement that we dont
know much about, and when we send
delegates they will be able to know more
about the true situation than we are
able to know here and now, and those
delegates ought to be free toet ac
co ding to their best judgment with
the new lights that may be around
them. My judgment is one way and
the coanty convention is another way.
We ought to send delegates and leave
them free to decide for what Is best for
the StaWe under the circumstances after
they get to Columbia.
Col. L. P. Miller: Ordinarily I would
agree with Dr. McIntosh. This is one
of the' meat'critical periods in the his
tory of this State through which we
are now passing. This movement in
its logical sequence means an appeal
to the negro- to settle our differences.
Newberry is unalterably opposed to
anything that looks like that. You
know my history. Four years ago I
was opposed to Mr. Tillman and his
methods. The first speech Ilever made
In Newberry County was in opposition
to the farmers' movement for as I saw
It, it was simply a first class movement
to put second class men in first class
positions and my position then In the
light of subsequent events was almost
prophetic. I want to be coDsistent and
do thne best thing for So.uth Carolina,
and the best thing f r the conservatIves
to do who have indignities heaped
upon them is to forbear. I told the
editor of the News and Courier four
years ago that the people of Newberry
wanted to do right but as long as they
were opposed and fought as they bad
been, the "movement" was given the
only cohesive power It ever had. I
want to see the time when each can
didate can- go before the people on his'
Individual merit. I have always op.
posed instructing delegates but this is a
peculiar time. The conservative peo
ple of my township begged me tocome
here and make this protest for them.
We can do nothing unless we can get
hold of the conservative element in the
Reform faction. This movement means
that we are going to array the Reform
ers so much the stronger against us.
This movemebt originated In a confer
ence held in the Interest of Senator
Butler. He is my old officer and I have
great affection for him, but above my.
affection for him I hold the interests of
South Carolina. Sometimes when In
the heat of passion, after one indignity
upon another has been heaped upon us,
I feel like we ought td do something,
but in calmer moments I feel that this
movement is a mistake and our dele
gates should be Instructed to opos
nominations, and I hope the resolu
tions will pass.
Mr. Sale: It seems to me that the
discussion will more properly come up
on the last resolution.
Dr, McIntosh: I think the discussion
comes up on one as well as another. So
far as the negro Is ooncerned, I am not
thinking about the negro. So far as
Senator Butler is concerned, I am
standing up here representing myself
and my propry Iam interested in
my pocket. We have been standing
up making a tight on side issues, and
the time has come when we must fall
in line with the National Democracy.
There has been no better time to stand
up for Democracy than the present.
The National Democracy is the party
of economy. We support our State
government by a tax ef $1.00 per head.
The general government costs $7.00.
Who has heaped up this tax upon us?
The party eupported by trusts and
monopolies and combinations. Grover
Cleveland, in spite of the abuse heaped
upon him, has stood between us and
Wall Street and the sugar trust, and he
has managed to get a bill through Con
gress-the tariff bill-which saves us
money. In the matter of pensions, the
last Congress was asked for $165,000,000
kiqt that did not quite meet the expedi
tgme 4nd $1.5,00,000 more were ap
propriated. When Hoke Smith came
in wben the present administration
came into offlee, this appropriation was
cut down to $140,000,000. Ia aounts
to about tti00,000 saving to- South
Carolina. Cleveland and the Dem
ocratic party have saved this State
about this amount. We sholud forget
these little divisions that have been
thrust upon us in the last four years
and we should stand up with the
Miational Democratic party and fight
Sr Democratic principles. Our dele
tes should not be tied when they are
pt to 'is convention in Columbia.

for Cleveland. As regards the
ate object I am with Dr. Nc
h; only I want to stop this foolish
which keeps us apart.
Col. George Johnistone: I came in as
spectator and did not intend to take
assy part. I doubt if the resolution is
understood by the body. One Conven
tion meets on the 17th and the other
one meets on the 19th. Suppose the
Convention of the 19th should affirm
allegiance to the National Democratic
platform and adopt a platform upon
which every Democrat can stand.
There is no difference among the people
about standing upon the principles of
Democracy. Suppose this convention
should do this, would it be wise for
any assembly of gentlemen to oppose
that? The question is whether or not
it is wise for us to forestall the conven
tion of the 19th. If it should adopt the
Republican platform, or anarchist, or
communistic, principles of course no
Democrats would go with them.
The first four resolutions were then

Mr. Geo. B. Cromer: As this is an
advisory meeting, gentlemen should
not cut off the discussion.
Mr. J. W. Scott: I am in sympathy
with the resolutions adopted. I have
gone that far, but will go no further.
If weare going to gag the men who goto
Columbia, just lets send the resolutions
down. Col. Miller intimated that this
movement emanated from a candidate.
I am not here in the interest of any
candidate. Democracy is sbakjng and
tiembling and needs repairs. Gentle
men have intimated that we must not
divide the white people. My God, if
they are not divided now they can't be
divided. I don't claim to belong to
any party but the Democratic party.
I don't come here asa Coaservativeor a
Tillmanite, but as a South Carolinian.
If we can do anything to solidify the
white people, I will -lend my aid. I
think we should elect delegates in sym
pathy with the resolutions passed, but
we should not adopt the fifth redolu
Mr. Cromer: Whileithe argument on
tariff reform and the sound principles of
Democracy all meet with my sympathy,
we are not met here to engage in a
tariff debate, or whether we are sound
in the Democracy or not. I have been
doing all I can ia my humble way for
the last sixteen years to promote the
principles of Democracy as I have seen
them. I do not claim to have any
greai amount of political sagacity
and others here may think the same
way. I have tried to look at the situa.
tion in a quiet and calm way. This
convention bhould send its delegates to
Columbia to do what it wants done.
Two conferenees have met in Columbia
-two secretconferences-and Tne State
paper says that every man but one at
these conferences was in favor of nomi
nating a State ticket. For the last four
years we have not had free and untram
meled Democracy in this State. Why
should we reorganize the Democracy
now. It reminds me of the boy who
wanted to jump a ditch. He went back
to get a good running start and by the
time he got to the ditch he was so tired
that he judhped right into it. When
the question is not open let the dele
a tes be instructed to do what you want
one. You say that the Sheppard move
ment brought over reform votes. Would
anybody undettake to say that the
Haskell movement has not been a
handicap to us ever since 1890. Let
your delegates go uninstructed and you
will have projected a movement which
cannot succeed. I am not here to dis
cuss the grievances against Tillmanism,
although we have enough of them.
Looking matters squarely in the face,
this movement will not only solidify
Tillmanism. but it will divide the Con
servatives. I do not believe that it will
get 500 Conservative votes in Newberry
County. Are you ready and willing to
precipitate such a movement. There
is only one way by which it can suc
ceed, and that is to let the negro come
in. The situation here is serious. If
we let tbe negro elect the ticket, we
put him between the two factions and
they .will never come together again. I
am not in favor of eight delegates going,
down to Columbia and pledging the
Democracy of this county to any such

with a few negative votes.
