The State. The call from "Headquarters of the Union Republican party of South Oarolina, rooms of the executive com mittee;" published last Wednesday, puts the Democratic party on notice hat Repablicans are trying to make i show' of fight. The advertisement ipportioning representation from the :ounties and congressional districts is interesting. The call is signed by Joseph Tolbert, chairman, and H. H. Mobley, secretary. The reorganized party plainly is to be a Tolbert ma :hine. Tolbert's "tried and true" Re publicanism has been vouched for by a "Jeffersonian Democrat." , Of special, not to say ominous, ignificance in the call is the timing f the convention. Tolbert's commit We might have met in May, when the democrats were reorganizing, and called a convention in July or August. While the Democratic campaign has een in progress the Tolbert Repub licans have remained quiet. Their convention will meet Tuesday, Sep tenber 19. That will be one week after the second Democratic primary. U any Democratic candidate shall imagine himself ill-treated, swindled, shehed, steam-rollered, his , dis aVpointment and indignation will be abouf September 19. Tol *,Convention - will be in session. bein a frame of mind to con it may lend a. loving ear to the nga of defeated Democrats. J. ewell knows that there is .partyat any time ex ivision of the white he will gain his conveutin flemocratic pri Rothing by it. ,s his date Tolbert is tnnjhe On'a'ntrnbe owe men of higher standing in the state are Republicans. None of them, how ever, has a testimonial from Demo crats. Tolbert's orders are said to be that his party must poll 2,500 to the congressional district. Indorsement of independent Democratic candidates might make it easy. This Tolbert JRepublican party is not "lily white". Its convention will contain many negroes. Observe, though, that the Republicans stick to the :onvention plan. They will hold no primary. Their convention will n t be organized on the basis of Demo.ratic state conventions. A Demcratic state convention contains two county delegates for each repre sentative and senator in the General Assembly, 340 members. Tolbert's convention will have one delegate for each member of the lower house of the General Assembly and none for senator. So it will be a small body, having 124 members. The result of this plan will be that delegates from the populous counties of the Up-country will nearly have a majority. Tolbert has heard that a few heads of corporations in the Up country are protectionists, Republi cans at heart. Twelve counties in the Piedmont will have 42 delegates or more than one-third of the whole number. They will be Tolbert men, "tried and true". The 12 counties do not include Charleston and Richland, doubtless safely under the control of Tolbert's federal office-holders, and they will have 13 delegates. Fourteen counties of the 46 would give Tol bert 55 of the 124, or eight less than a majority. In the Up-country are reported to be a few men, very few, say four or five, chiefs of corporations, protec tionists and Republicans at heart, wi have money and, secredtly, might give money to split the Democratic organization. Joe Tolbert will be in a position on the 19th of September to take care of his friends. The second1 Demo cratic primary will be held Tuesday, September 12. If there should be no second Democratic primary for gov ernor andl other important offices there would be no danger to the Democ rats from Tolbert's convention. The ladies of the town assembled in the Community building last Mon lay afternoon and -.ere greatly ben ~tt-i by a talk by Mr. J. E. Mc Donald. county chairman, who in structedl them in the method of vot ing preparatoin of ballots, and other maitters, which mnight he confusing on CALLED FOR THE ING FOR ROAD BOND ISSUE Only a small number responded to the call of Mr. R. A. Meares for a meeting Monday in the interests of good roads. Although the number was small, it was fairly representa tive of the different parts of the county. The spirit of the meeting seemed to be not superfiicial enthus iasm, but determination' to have the rcads without waiting or quibbling over the manner of getting them. For the information and refreshing of memory of those present, Mr. Meares stated what had transpired at the preceding meeting and took up briefly the points and differences brought out then; stating that this meeting should find some way of har monizing the several details argued before. Practically every phase was again discussed. After a general and informal discussion 'the following res olution was intrdouced by Mr. Mc Meekin, which sets aside all previous action and purposes to remove any objections to the bond issue which were raised formerly: "Resolved: That the county chair man call a convention under the rules of the party; said conyention to map out roads to be worked, name com mittees to be appointed, and submit same to the voters in the general election; the amount of bonds to be issued to be not less than $500,000. Said convention to be called on some suitable date hereafter to be design ated by the county chairman." SHELTON MAGISTRATE MAKES STILL RAID. In a raid by magistrate C. A. Dye, constable W. H.

Mr. Editor:-Your editorial en dorsement of the Hon. G. W. Rags dale for circuit judge should meet not only the approval of the people of the Sixth Judicial District, but the approval of the people of the entire State. Mr. Ragsdale is not only abundantly equipped and qualified for- the judic iary, but his spoltess character, in tegrity and honorable record would add influence, prestige and strength to the judiciary of South Carolina. Mr. Ragsdale is strictly of a ju dicial temperament, which only law yers who practice in the courts can fully appreciate.
