Mr. Stevenson on taking the chair I
thanked the convention for the honor,
doubly an honor coming from such a
grand old Stato as Sonti Carolina.
Tho convention was meeting on the
transition from one century to an
other, to elect delogates to name a
standard boaror to ushor in the now
century, a loader standing in the
shoes of Thomas Jefferson. Ho look

lina's great growth in taxable proper
ty, in cotton manufacturing, second
now to Massachusetts, and in tobacco
growing. Wo now have a united front
and have rolled Uack the dark cloud
of Negro domination. Rairoads are
being .uilt here faster than in any
other State. It is a phonomenal ro
cord for a decado.
The convention appointed com

ator Tillman as chairman, and con
stitution and by-laws wvith Mr.
DeB3ruhl as chairman.

Every one who is iL StatO or national
politics, who has b, oa in it and wants
to got back, and t ose who want to
got a tasto of poli- ics now or in the
future, were hero. It was a regular
lovo feast in pohtio.. Conservativs,
straightouts, roforror-, Tillimanitos
and al I were i a tt tidance and voted
for each other anId .-,t ted each other
on the back.

States had played no unimportant
part. Cuba had been freed from
Spain's yoke and had a republican
form of governmen't for the people,
of the people and l>.y the peoplo.
