S. P. STHIULIXO. Thc Boston Herald has been study ing thc results of thc recent elections. As thc result it declares that th ero has boen no year since tho war-not even that remarkable one of 1874, which was followed by seventy or eighty Democratic majority in Con gress-when tho local elections showed smdi steady and sweeping gains against thc party in power as they have shown in thc North, the centre and thc East this year-ev erywhere, indeed, in which thc pco plo have voted. Jt indicates not only a widespread feeling of dissat isfaction on thc condition of tho tariff, but an emphatic disapproba tion of thc course of President Har rison, thc action of Speaker Heed, and thc unscrupulous effort, as seen jn thc Montaiin election and in other instances, to overthrow thc influence of tho people in our form of govern ment. Thc Democratic party never had more important work to do, nor more encouragement to enter boldly upon it. A. RI. Turner, general manager of a big farm in Rlartin County, N. C., made* quito a record last hunting season as a sportsman. Ho killed 37 wild turkeys, 815 wild ducks, 18 deers, 20 foxes, 7 otters, 3 beavers, 17 'coons, 10 'possums and a large humber Qt partridges) squirrels and rabbits lt . is. said also that he catches a bushel of ilish every day, Conference of the Atitl-Tillinnn t Formers.

On motion of Major Younians it wns determined to appoint a com mittee to prepare an address lo thc Democracy of South Carolina, such committee to report an address nt 5 v. M. Nominations were made from thc lloor, and thc following gentlemen were elected : John J. Dargan, of Sumter, L. W. Kounians, of Barn well, Iredell Jones, of York, Thos. W. Woodward, of Fairfield, and C. S. Land, of Clarendon. At 12:20 c. M., thc Conference took a recess until 5 p. M. Tl IK AKTKKNOOX SKSSIOX of thc Conference was, like thc earlier one, open to tho public, and a large number of leading business men, upon ascertaining that they could sec and hear tho proceedings of the meeting, attended and took seals around the large room, which, (turing one session of tho Legisla ture, while tho interior of thc State House was being reconstructed, served as tho Senate chamber. Ad ditional supplies of chairs were brought in for tho conferees, who, at 5:22 v. M., had arrived and taken their places in thc center of the roam. President Jones and Seorotajy Dargan sat side by side at a long table ami were Hanked by reporters. Tho Chair at the hour named called thc Conference to order and request ed Coi. L. W. Younians, thc (./'hair man of tho committee appointed lo prepare an address, to submit lin committee's report. Col. Younians produced au assortment ol' letti; sheets, bearing inscriptions in three or four handwritings, eloquent evi dence that the address bad be brought to the Conference in no body's pocket, and read slowly and with deliberate emphasis tho follow ing paper : "Tho situation of political affairs in South Carolina demands the im mediate consideration of every good citizen. As Democrats and farmers, seeking no personal gain, but infill* enccd by strong convictions as to the good of our State, wc desire lo pre sent our views to thc Democrat ic voters of the State, nod to ask for these views a fair and thoughtful consideration. "The Democratic party is indicted by some of its own members for favoritism, for relinquishing its func tions to an oligarchy of aristocrats, for betraying thc confidence placed in it by thc people, for wasteful ex travagance, even for corruption. Your natural foes have not alleged so much. Men within tho party, claiming to represent 80 per cent of tho Democratic voles and having aspirations for office, have not sub mitted their claims according lo thc usual methods upon their merits to thc judgment of a Democratic Con vention; but upon fictitious pretexts havo formed a party within their party, hold a Convention, adopted a platform, practically nominated a candidate for Governor, and by moans of an organized campaign committee propose to force their candidate upon tho ?3tatt) Demo cratic Convention in thu name of the fanners of South Carolina. "In this departure from the usual mothods, in our judgment, there ?s an innovation pregnant with great danger to thc unity and harmony of thc Democrat ii; party. Conscious of thc fact thal the purity and integ rity of our institutions depend upon thc solidarity of tho party, we view with tho greatest apprehension thc delib?rate declaration of the candi dato, which, in our opinion, arraya caste against casto, ami, dividing tho whito pcoplo, ondangors Anglo Saxon supremacy. Helioving that upon tho perpetuity of tho Demo cratic party in ?South Carolina as at present constituted depends the peace and prosperity of tho State and thc general welfare of tho people; believ ing that tho methods of nominating State ?ffic?ttl by that party in tho past havo been fair, honorable and just to all classes of our citizens, regardless Of occupation or calling; believing that thc administration of tho Slate Government has been in tho past and is at present able, pure, honest and free from corruption; believing that an attack upon thc party under these circumstances is fi reflection upon thc intelligence and integrity of thc people; believing that thc party's mott ., in thc future should be as it has been in thc past, 'Equal rights to all, special privileges to none,' wc, thc undersigned, farmers and Democrats, desire lo enter our solemn protest against thc unusual, unprecedented 'and revolutionary action of thc Shell Convention. "As Democrats wc cannot witness without protest thc control of our party by a faction; as agricultural ists wc will not permit our honorable occupation to bo degraded into a spoilsman's 'machine;' as citizens wc will not be silent, under misrepresen tation. Wc believe that itt these declarations wc voice the sober opin ions of a majority of our Democratic farmers. Thc success of tho 'Till man movement' under thc 'Sholl' call would mean tho discredit of thc Democratic party by itself; it would declare slander truth and reward thc slanderer. It would embroil thc party, make local quiet impossible, and check the industrial develop ment of thc Stale. In tho oyes of thc country it would be a verdict against thc Democracy of South Carolina. Wo confidently appeal to that Democracy to arouse itself, and to support our protest against the aggrandizement of ono man at such great cost lo thc State." Tlie address was signed by thc fol lowing members, all of whom were present: [redol? .Iones, President ol thc Conference, York; John J. Dar gan, Secretary, Sumter; L. K. Camp bell, Ahdorson; L. W.

Tho Conference punctuated tb address with applause, cspooinll; that part expressing thoir tletcrmi nation not to allow tho agricultura interests to bo degraded into a spoils man's ''machine." There was mor applause at tho close. Thc questio of tho adoption of tho address wa put, and Col. Youmans, speaking t it, made a strong but short speed Ho said that thc address presente thc views entertained by thc commit Icc and, he believed, held by all c tho members of tho Cohforonc present. Thal South Carolina ha been ruled by an oligarchy of aristo orals; that Hampton and his assoc ates and successors had not repr< sen ted thc common people of tl: State as well as others; that ot Government had been inefficient < corrupt, were assertions which coul not bo sustained and which the Coi foronco would feel bound to rojee Since 1870 tho Government of Soul Carolina has been as pure and patt otic as any which ever presided ov< any organization of civilized heine [Applause] Tho committee hf been conservative in its report, b with a tolerance for differingopinioi of some of tho brave mon who hf sustained thc State in its new deel ration of independence in 187C, felt warranted in challenging pro of tito charges against tho Dothoor oy which had boen made to dolu< them-charges which, as tho ropo had stated, exceeded those mudo 1 |our natural foes. [Applause.] Thc address was then unanimous adopted. President Jones stated th twenty-one counties were represor cd in this Conference, but tho tin afforded for the preparation hi been so short that in cases who gentlemen invited to attend h; boen unable do so it had not bo I practicable to invite others to tn thoir places, but lie cou'."! announce that in only two eases had tho nu? swore been unfavorable. Soino of tho replies from those who wore un ablo to bo present woro so pleasant that ho would ask tho Secretary to read extracts from them in evidence of the interest and approval of thoso who woro compelled to bc absout from tho Conference.

Oconcc-John VY. Shelor, Tu galoo : "1 fully endorse the Confer ence you suggest, and it is with great reluctance I write you tho above excuse. I have looked upon tho Shcll-Tillman movement from its* origin and conception as sensa tional ami calculated to do much harm and little good, except to ad vertise tho originators of the move ment and bring them lo thc front, and when you analyze tho whole matter you find self-aggrandizemenl at the bottom with no merit at al! to sustain it."

"If nothing prevent I wil lill your appointment on thc 28d.'* ?). Lancaster-John B. Erwin Lancaster: "Lancaster sent dele gates (myself among them) to th Shell Convention to oppos nominations as (langerons to ibo in tcgrity of thc Democratic party ii South Carol ?ha. * - ' - I do no regard thc Shell Convention as farmers' convention. Tho mnjorit of thc farmers present voted again* nomination. Thc measure was cai ried only by thc assistance of th men from Charleston. This dostroj cd tho farmers' strength. Tho as peet at present is a dissatisfied win of tho party against thc regain Democratic organization and, I ma add, tho civilization of tho Stat? tho supremacy of thc whites. Tili you, gentlemen may succeed in d< vising some plan whereby to dofet the scheme of this arrant demagoga is most desirable, but how to net fe thc best under tho circumstances, think, will require much thought an prudence." Col. Dargan then spoke briefly ail earnestly. It had been stated c tho floor of thc Shell Convention, 1 said, that thc people needed politic education and wished public que lions to be discussed before them c tho stump. This wish thc mon wli were herc to-day proposed to mc to thc fullest extent. Our pcoplo i need political education. That demonstrated by tho fact that movement like that of Capt.
