The Hon B R Tillman, Washington, D. C.?
Dear sir and Friend : According to the oon-1
Btltutlon of the Democratic party of South
Carolina the State Democratic Convention
will confene In Columbia, on Wednesday,
May 16,1900, to elect delegates to the National
Convention, a member of the national
Democratic executive committee, and to
make such changes and amendments to the
constitution of the Democratic party In this
State si may seem desirable for the proper
oondoot of the coming Stale campaign.
TheobJeetof tJMs communication Is toasjt?nnr
nnlnlnn M. If) the BrODrlety ftBu "tl6
slrabllliy of amending A 'nf tbe con-1
tltatloo of theDemoorjiifi'party of this Bute, |
which reada u folioj^r
"Article 11; RjrfVn the election in 1886, and
each election tjJMfcfter, the stale Democratic
executive ccJftDlttee shall issue a call to all
caoaldaiea^pr Slate otfloes to address tbe
people oC fw different oountles of this State,
fixing vne dates of tbe meetings, and alao Invlilrvg
the candidates for Congress. CJalced
States Senate and for solicitors In tbelr respective
district and circuits to be present and
address the people. At such meetings only
tbe candidates aoore set forth shall be allow/ed
to gpgftk," *
The above article la mandatory. It requires
tbe Slate Democratic exeftutlve committee to
formulate tbe schedule for tbe a;bole State
campaign without giving tbe oounty
executive committees of the various counties
any voice In the arrangement of tbe time and
place of meeting ror tbelr reapeottve oountles.
Quite a number or peopie?aoa wimt
good reason?lb Ink that thin 'article of the
party conatltnllon should be either' entirely
abrogated or at least bo amended as to give
tbe Individual conntles a voice lb making
tbe schedule of tbe meeting. Tbe most potent
reasons adduced In bebalr of 8Qcb change or
amendment Id tbe constitution of our party
are these: . V
First. Tbe county exeoutlve committee of
the several counties-, knowing tbe desire and
tbe need of tbe people in their respective
conntles better than Is possible /or the State
Democratic executive committee to know,
should have tbe privilege of Axing a time and
a place for tbe State oompalgn meetings of
their respective counties. Jl'\
Second. Many of tbe meetings In tbe last
two campaigns were mere farces. They were
forced upon communities it Inopportune
times and ai places where nd meetings were
desired. This should be avoided In the
future.
Third. It is Impossible to run. a campaign
of education on tbe old plain. When all candidates
are required to attend tbe meeting at
a certain time and place tbe great number
preHent to address tbe voters preludes tbe
idea of intelligent discussion or g^ave public
questions in tbe brief spaoe of live, ten or
nfieen minutes allowed eacb speaker.
Fourth. Tbe newspaper reports of tbe
various meetings are virtually ine game auy
after day, and are usually bat mere
atereotyped skeleton o a skeleton argument,
and in no case sufficiently elaborate to express
clearly the vlewo of the speaker or to
enlighten the bearer. Therefore, If tbe meetings
are to be ednoatlonal. tbe will and the :
convenience of tbe people must be consulted
in appointing the campalgu meetings, so thai
larger audiences will be attracted and longer!
time given to speakers.
Filth. Tbe proposed change in the constitu- j
tlon would give each candidate tbe greatest i
possible latitude and liberty In conducting '
his own campaign and would give tbe respec- j
live counties the rlgbt to regulate and direct
tbelr own political appointments and to In-;
vlte whomsoever they desired to be present, j
whenever and wherever tbe people wished to
hear them.
Sixth. Under tbe old plan a meeting is
scheduled for each county, whether desired or
not, and each candidate must follow the profession
throughout the State regardless of ex

on lees ''something better" oa/a be substituted
for It. Too Dave stated the ffefeclain the present
system none too atrongiy, and there are
others which ooeur to rae, which you have
not mentioned. For instance, It vai never
conceived possibly that* man would offer as
a candidate for high position simply because
of vanity or bis being a oipnk, still less tban
anyone would enter sujh a race with no
hopes of being elected, bat simply with the
view of defeating anoihef man. There can be
no UmltHtloD as to the< number of persons
who shall run for any oBoe if they comply
with the prerequisites. 'The Join discussion
was luteuded to Rive tire people an opportunity
of hearing both sliies and of allowing
the candidates to presebt their views directly
to the voters.
THE GKEAT MISTAKE
that has been made wa* the attempt to divide
the time pro rata, or apportion It out among 1
all the candidates. Ti.uk, as you have said,
there was no chance tor a candidate to mafee p
a speech ordo himself any credit, and the
people were disgusted to that extent that ,
they refused to turn out to the meetings. I ^

outline policies, but are largely administrative
officers, while the Governor not only Influences

appointing power and veto controls public
anairs, true should ne a man or any lorce

tbe plan of having no meetings under tbe
auspices of the Slate committee, but turn all
tbe candidates loose and let them arrange

who get up plcnlo invite tbem to, but until

way to have tbls done except through
the medium of publtc debate.

ORGAN RECITAL. ,
On last Thursday evening long before the
liour announced for the Organ Recital, the
Methodist Church was being well filled, so
that when the appointed hour rolled around
the church was crowded to Its utmost capaolty,
even the vestibules and aisles were packed
to overflowing. Many people from the
surrounding country were present. The program
bo carefnlly made up of select music
waf carried out fully, to the entire satisfaction
and great pleasure of all present The
*0i6? long oy Miss Corrie McClung and Mrs.
McMil)aa,were most charmingly and beautifully
rindfcjted, as well as the duettes sang by
Messrs. Jones and Cochran. Miss Kirby, the
organist, was perfectly at home and played
with unusual trace and ea^e. while her very
soul seemed thrilled as her fingers flew over
Lhe keys bringing out so skilfully and sweetly
the deep rich tones of the magnificent
jrgan. Miss Kirby as an orgacnst, and
pianist has before her a brilliant career. Miss
bucy White played the accompaniment for
Miss McClung. and by her sweet and skilfull
louoh showed her proficiency in music, and
sailed forth the praise of the large and appreciative
audience. This was an occasion of
anuBual pleasure and was efijoyad by every
)ne present, and H goes without saying that
.beorgan recital wasagr&pdsuccess and the
ludlence only wait'atftt Wlah tpr a similar oojaaion.

LABGE CONGREGATION ? SPLENDID SERMON
7 AND FINE SINGING.
On last Sunday night Dr. Daniel preached
a tine practical sermon, bis subjeot was "Protect
tbe home." His remarks showed from a
blblcal standpoint that God's commands to
the Jews in regard to the bnlldlog of battlemeats
around their homes was today just as
binding upon us. and that God would hold us
responsible for tbe dangers coming to those
around us, being caused by our negleot or
carelessness just as certainly as He did tbe
j|ws under the Mosaic dispensation. Therefore
it behooves every one to place battlements
around bis bouse forprotectlon against
ne many evils and temptations of tbe day.
He said place high up in from of your borne
"Reverence for God's word" then place equally
hlgb oo tbe right "Observance of tbe Sabbath,"
then high upon tbe left "Cburcb Loyalty,"
and lastly upon tbe rear wall "Prayer."
Any home surrounded by these battlemeuts,
with a strict observance tbereto would be a
protection and safe guard to any home, and
would save manv of tbelr inmates from
lemptattoDB luto which they are dally falling.
His central Idea with homes thus surrounded,
and filled with good, healthful literature
and music and otherwise made beautiful
and attractive, would become that happy
Ideal home from which the Inmates would
not likely stray. His words were pertlment
and afforded much room for thought, as it is
too true these battlements tbat should be
around every home, are too truly negleoted
in this day and generation. Make home happy,
then there will be no place on earth like
"Home, Sweet Home."
