-THE PERMANENT ORGANIZATION.
* On motion of Mr. Blease, the tem
porary organization of the convention
was made permanent.
Mr. Dominick, in thanking the con
vention for his election as chairman,
MR. DOMINTCK'S ADDRESS
Gentleman of the Convention: I heart
ily thank you for the double hono,r youi
have paid me, in electing me bothb
your temporary and your permanent
chairman. The convention is called
in accordance with the constitut ion of
the Democratic parby to provide for
the beginning' of another campaign in
democratic history. South Carolina
has always stood out pre-eminent
amngo the galaxy of States composing
this Union, on account of its unique po
sition, its ha-ing thoughts of its own,
and fearing not to put them into ex
ecution. We have today reached a
time when we do not have the same in
terest in our conventions as formerly.
Once upon a time we were all governed
by them, in that all affairs were man
aged by them. Today they are only
called for putting party machinery
into operation and providing for the
primary. But when that primary is
provided for certain safeguards have
to be thrown around it and that is one
question which comes before you to
day, whether you shall instruct your
delegates to the State Convention as to
what they shall do insofar as the com
ing primary is concerned.
We are all familiar with what has
been going on in this State for several
years past. At one time we were
alarmed lest the bulwark of democracy
should be battered down and we should
once more be under the heel of the op
pressor. Even if the bubble has burst,
as a morning paper has said, even if
the chief opponent of democracy in
South Carolina has decided not to en
ter the lists, I say that the duty is
more strong that we should go on re
cord in stamping out the republican
ism from our ranks, and saying that
none but Democrats shall run in a Dem
ocratic primary. [Applause ] Since our
junior Senator has been eliminated
from the race there is all the more
reason that our State convention should
put itself on record and prescribe the
.tandard of condidates who run, for
now since he has gone out of the race
a resolution of this character could be
passed and no one can stand up and
say it is persecution of one man. But
it is for you to say whether or not our
delegates shall be instructed.
Tiaere are other matters which will
come before you, and one to which I
desire to call your attentiion is the
resolution passed last year providing
for representation in this convention
for one delegate for every fifteen mem
bers of a club. In my humble opinion
the proportion and ratio as fixed by the
State Convention is large enough. We
now have too large a Convention.
Again, I thank you.
On motion of Mr. Blease, Messrs.
J Y. Culbreath - an-i C. T . Wyche
were unanimously elected vice-pres
idents of the convention.
STATE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEEMAN.
On motion of Mr. Jno. Henry
Chappell Cole L Blease wea elected

PRESENTING REGISTRATION CERTIFI
Mr. Blease offered tbe following re
solutions in behalf of the delegation
representing the Factory Democratic
Resolved, Thbat we oppose any change
in the rul s governing the primary
that will require voters to present
their registration tickets, and request
our delegates to the Sta*te C.onvention
to oppose any resolution looking tc
Resolved, 2nd, That we favor the
amending of the pled ge so as to require
all voters to pledge themselves to sup.
port tbe nominees of the Democratic
party. both national and state.
Mr. Blease said that in t wo counties
they had instructed their delegates to
introduce a resolution in the State
Convention looking to the amending
of the rules so that no one can vote in
the primary save those who present a
registrati.pn certificate. We have been
taught that the primary is for the pur
pose of learning the will of a majority
of the white people of South Carolina.
He spoke as the representative and
delegate of 350 voters, 260 of them bein g
operatives in the Newberry Cotton
Mill 'This was a movement placed on
foot to disfranchise a certain class who
are as much entitled to vote as any peo
ple. And reachin'g back into the farm
ing districts it would say to tha farmer,
after he has ridden two or three miles
and has forgotten his certfficate, that
he can not vote. It is the duty of
every citizen to register, but because
he does not dolt is noreason why he
should be disfranchised.
Hon. Geo. Johnstone said that he
apprehended full well that in the pres
ent condition of the people of South
Carolina it is of supreme importRnee
t!at every citizen who is entitled :o
vote should be registered, particular:y
in vxw of the fact that there is at pr -
ent a movement on foot in the national
coLgress looking to the cutting down
of tie representations of the v-rious
Stuthern States He said ttiat it was
of supreme importance that every
white man in every Southern S!ate
should be registered and suoull vo)te on
the day of the general election, in or
der that ihe arguments that are now
being used to cut down their repre
sentation in the National Corgress,
based upon the slender poll at our gen
cral elections, should not have the
weight with Northern audiences that
thay now have. He was in favor
of keeping up interest in t.be primary,
but he wanted to see more interest
taken in the general elections. But
he could see w by those resolut ions had
been introduced by the factory club.
They are not a settled people. They
are hardly ever located at the same
place for twelve months, and he
thought it would be well for the Con
vention to favor their appeal.
The resolutions were then adopted.
MR BLEASE ENDORSED
Mr. W. G. Peterson introduced the
following resolutions, which were
adopted by the Convention with xat dis
Resolved, That we, the members of
the' Conuty Democratic Convention, of
Newberry County, do hereby endorse
Cole. L. Blease, Esq , for bhe office of
Lieutenant Governor of South Carolna,
and recommend him to the Democratic
voters of this State as one thoroughly
competent to discharge the duties of
said office and worthy of their confi
dence and support.
A NEW COURT HOUSE.
Mr. J. B. Hunter stated that he had
been requested by the Supervisor to
call the the attention of the Conven
tion to the advisability of placing at
each poll during the primary a ballot
box, in which the voters might put
their ballots saying whether or not
they wanted A new court house. The
regular way to go about the matter
was for the Legislature to pass an Act
ordering this course to be pursued, but
in tbis manner they could get the voice
of the people and it amountedi to the
same thing. The old court house had
not long ago caught on fire, and there
was 88,900 insurance on the buildtin
and the Supervisor has ia his hande
$2,000 which can be used for repairs.
He made a motion that the ballot boxes
as above stated be placed at each p:ill.
The motion was adopted.
THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. -
The milmes of tne members of the
executive com mittee as suggested by the
various clubs were c alled by the sec
retary, and the memobers elected. The
names appear iuthe report of the pro
eedings of the committee.
IN MEMORY OF HAMPTON.
The following resolutions upon the
death of Wade Hampton; were offered
by Col. George .Johnstone, on behalf of
a committee appointed, consisting of
himself as chairman, Col. 0. L. Scbum
pert, and Mr. W. G. Peterson
Resolved, That the County Demo
cratic Convention of Newberry County
most deeply feels the irreparable less
which the people of this State have
lately suffered in the death of Gov
ernor Wade Hampton. Firm in con
viction, resolute in the right, profound
in his wisdom, his unselfish patriotism
led us to victory in 1876, and created an
ep' ch not only in the history of his
state but in thbe history of the A merican
Resolved, That in his death South
Carolina has lost one who, under all
circumstances, was ever true to her
traditions, her history and her people,
one to whom she turned for comfort
and for guidance in the hours of her
supremest sorrow, and ever felt safe
whben her interests were in his keeping.
In his wisdom, his unswerving devotion
to duty, and his self-sacrifice, he has
lefLt us a heritage that will be cherished
throughb all time.
Mr. Johnstone, in presenting the reso
lutions said that there were many present
who were strangers to the scenes of '76,
many who have been born and are
grown to manhood and have married who
were born since then. It is only those
who were at least ten years of age who
remember the scenes and troubles through
which we passed. There are but few
now, for the years are rolling on, who re
member the scene in the city of Columbia
when this one man moved as a piece of
machinery, the entire democratic party
of this state. There are many here who
remember the flocking to Columbia that
took place when it was understood that
the ~Hampton administration was in
danger. A single word from the great
leader, that now was not the time for a
disturbance, but if the people were
willing to trust him, he would ask them
to return to their homes with the assur
ance that their voice and their votes
would be respected, and he would be
Governor of South Carolina, or by the
eternal God there would be a military
government; and Columbia -vas desolated.
He has lately gone to his last resting
place. In view of these occurrences, in
viev of our great struggle i '76, we have
offered these resolutions out of respect to
the memory of the leader of this party in
those days. Mr. Johnstone spoke for
several minutes. He was eloquent and
IN MEMORY OF W. C. CROMER.
The same committee presented the
following resolutions upon the death of
Mr. Wallace C. Cromer:
Resolved, That in the death of Wallace
Cline Cromer, since 1888 Auditor of New
berry County, this Convention realizes
that the Democracy of the county has
lost a most thorough, efficient, courteous,
able and conscientious officer.
Resolved, 2nd, That we point. to his
career as one worthy to be followed and
as doing honor to the constituency that
>placed him in office.
Resolved, further, That a copy of these
resolutions, expressive of our spmpathy
in their bereavement, be furnished by the
secretary of this convention to his family.
IN MEMORY O CHAIRMAN BOYD.
The folllowing resolutions were offered
by Mr. B. B Leitzsey:
Resolved, That the Democratic party of
NL\ewberry County. in convention assem
bled, has heard with profound sorrow of
the death of Calhoun F. Boyd, Esq., late
County Chairman, and that it extends to
his afflicted family its sincere sympa'hy
in their bereavement.
Resolved, futher, That the Secretary of
the Convention transmit to the family of
the deceased a copy of these resolutions I
and the county newspapers he requested
to publish them.
Resolved, further, That as a particular
mark of respect to the memory of the de- -

services to the party, this convention do
B B. Leitzsey,
J W. D. Johnson,
Fred H. Dominick,
Mr. Blease, in seconding the resolu
tions upon the death of Mr. Boyd, said J
that the people 'of Newberry County
knew his worth, knew his merit, had hon
ored him with one of the most important
offices within their gift, and there was
little for him to say. He also seconded
the resolutions on the death of Wade
Hampton, and he hoped that~the resolu
tions on the death of these two men.
one giving his services and his life
to the county, the other giving his
life and his all to his State, would be
adopted by a rising vote, and the young
democracy and the old democracy would
clasp hands in remembrance of the ser
vices of Calhoun F. Boyd and Wade
Mr. Schumpert spoke eloquently in
seconding the resolutions upon the death
of Mr. Cromer, saving that the people of
Newberry County had all known him and (
had'all loved him. He also spoke of the
resolutions upon the death of Mr. Boyd
aid Gov. Hampton. ]
Mr. Johnstone said that he had known
Mr Boyd in every walk of life. He had
also known Mr Cromer since 1876, and
he knew his heroism, his perseverance,
his uprightness in every walk of life, and
the patience with which he bore the fell
disease which caused his death.
The resolutions were then each unani
mously adopted by a rising vote.
The convention then adjourned.

Mr. W. Y. Fair's gravel pit, was killed

was almost instantaneous. F:y was about
