THOS. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 12,1894. Gov. Tillman has commuted William Carpenter's sentence to life-time in the penitentiary. In some sections of the State the army or poid worm is actually eat ing up German millet patches. Col. Lawrence W. Youmans, of Barnwell, has already gathered one hundred bales of cotton from six j hundred acres. It has been rumored that Gov. Tillman will call a special session of the Legislature, but we don't be lieve a word of it. The State Democratic Conven tion will meet in Columbia on next Wednesday, the 19th instant, after that, the deluge Judge Presley died at his home in Summerville last week. Judge Presley was pure and able. The Cato of South Carolina 2)0st bel lum judges. The Alliancemen of North Caro lina are "getting there." They are going to build cotton factories in every available town in the State, and in order to do it, they are rais ing money in monthly payments from the members. They are on the right line, and their example might be followed with profit by members of the order in other States. How much better is this than to dabble in politics. Sundry Florence county Demo crats, without regard to faction, have issued a call for a county convention at Florence on Sept. 20th. The call is addressed to "all Democrats who are opposed to the manner in which the Democratic party is now managed in Florence county." The Times, the leading paper of that county, thinks it too j late. One or two or three other counties are moving also in this matter of kicking against the pres ent order of things. [For the ADVERTISER. Etliered?re Items, Miss Bettie Watkins is visiting her sister, Mrs. John Etheredge, at Trenton. Miss Sallie Wyse, of Batesburg, has just returned from a visit among relatives and friends in this community. Come again, Miss Sallie, and lot us have another peep at you. Rev. C. P. Boozer preached at St. Marks last Sunday, in the ab sence of our pastor, Rev. O. B. Shearouse. Rev. Boozer was our pastor for many years, he is a good preacher, and we always consider it a great privilege to sit under the sound of his voice. Mr. J. C. Drafts, manager of the Alliance store at this place, is now ready to supply Alliancemen with jute cotton bagging at 7 cents per yard. Call and see him. Dr. J. S. Black, after a brief va cation to better the condition of , his health, has returned to resume his practice. ' Pulling fodder and picking cot- 1 ton .are all the go on this side now, 1 and it is well that protracted meet- 1 ing and barbecue goings are all over, if it were not so we fear the c people would fail to gather the 1 good crops which a wise Providence 1 has so richly given. Let them be ? as enthusiastic to gather their crops ? as they were over the late campaign, 1 and we venture to say they will * make a clean shucking, no seed s will be left in the field for a vol- J unteer crop. 1 We wonder if our little lawyer 1 friend of the Conservative side is ? "all smiles" since the election is r over. r At a meeting of the patrons of ' Pleasant Grove School, held last Wednesday, Mr. Henry D. Sease, ? of Pomaria, S. C., was elected * teacher for the ensuing year, not- * withstanding the many applica- ' tions, Mr. Sease was unanimously elected. We know him personally and feel safe in saying he will make the people of this commu nity proud of their choice. He is a graduate of Newberry College, which alone is all the recommenda tion any one needs. Boys if you want to be successful in life go to Newberry College. She needs your help and you need her instructions The other day an old darkey was asked for his opinion about the state of affairs in this country and in reply he said : "This world am a fleeting sure. If all our sins are forgiven, there is not an honest man on earth, and but few in heaven." Can't somebody invent or dis cover something to destroy mos quitoes by the thousands? SWARTZ. Etheredge, S.

THOS. W. CARWILE, Chairman Democratic Conference Committee. To the Democrats of South Caro lina : Whereas, Under the guidance of those so-called Democrats, or a ma jority of them, who have control of the party machinery in this State, the leaders of the rank and file of the party have attempted to com mit them to tho Third party and to Populist doctrines, have alien ated us from our fellow-Democrats of the Union, and have brought the party in South Carolina into reproach as to its alignment with the national Democracy, adopted false and undemocratic principles md promulgated them in the name ind under the banner of Democ racy; and Whereas, The Democratic masses )f the State have been grossly be layed by men charged with the jarty management who have usurp id the rights and used the machin >ry of the party for selfish ends, a J najority of the so-called State Democratic executive oommittee ictually permitting another self- . ionstituted committee (only claim- < ng to represent a faction of a fae- : ion) to assume control of the ?arty management, and in the i nost flagrant and offensive man ier to disfranchise thousands of rue Democrats ; and Whereas, A Ring has been or ;anized and is exercising most ar >itrary and tyrannical power, to he utter subversion of the will of he people, and thereby depriving hem of their political rights ; now herefore be it Resolved, That we as true, loyal, ind uncompromising Democrats, epudiate the Third party platform epeatedly (and at the recent Au gust State convention of the fac ion now in power) forced upon ?ur party, and hereby pledge our ?ontinued allegiance to true Dem ?cratic principles as enunciated at he last National Democratic con rention. We feel the absolute i iece86ity of a complete reorgani- I :ation of the party in this State md invite all true Democrats to I issist us in its rehabilitation and n the organization of Democracy n South Carolina squarely in line | rvith sound Democratic doctrine; 30 it Further resolved, Th.it we here Dy invite the Democrats of the State of South Carolina to assem Dle at tho court-houses of their .espective counties on Saturday, he 15th day of September, 1894, i Dr at such other place and manner : is they may determine, for tho . purpose of selecting delegates (two for every representative for the lower house and the Senate, to which the county is entitled) to meet in Columbia at a convention to be held on the 17th of Septem ber, at 8 P. M., for the purpose of reorganizing the Democratic party in South Carolina, considering the political situation of the State and taking such action as their collec tive wisdom may suggest for the public welfare.
