C., May 31.-The State Democratic Convention met at noon to-day in the hall of the House of Rep resentatives and was called to order by Chairman Wilie Jones. Three hundred members were present and much time was sp?ut in calling the roll and re vising it. * v In place of J. H. Tillman, of Edge field, the name of T. H. Kain Rf on1 was substituted, and of J. W. Moou,, jf Hampton, the name of Col. Wilie Jones. Col. Wilie Jones and Governor Mc sweeney were nominated for chair man, but the governor withdrew and Colonel J ones was unanimously elected. Thomas E. Hawes and J. T. Parker were elected secretaries. The following vice-presidents were elected: First district, .J. W. Dunn, Charleston; Second district. Dr. W. C. Smith, Barnwell: Third Dietriot, A. J. Sligh, Newberry; Fourth district, W. L. Mauldin, Greenville; Fifth district, I J. E. McDonald, Winnsboro; Sixth ! district, A. H. Williams, Williams j burg; Seventh district. W. B. Scar I borough. F. M. Mixou waselected sergeant-;: t I arms and J. E. Bogga treasurer. j DISCUSSION OVER RESOLUTIONS. I A long discussion inane tl over a reso j lution introduced by D. S. Henderson, i of Aiken, providing that all resolutions ! Bhould be referred without debate to a committee composed of ono member of each county delegation. W. D. Evans, of Marlboro, opposed the resolutions, and offered a substitute that two com mittees should be appointed, one to act upon platform and resolutions; the other to act on constitution and rules. Those committees will each be com posed of one member from each dele gation. After some debate this was adopted. A number of resolutions were then Submitted and read. Among them were a D?mocratie platform by G. R. Rembert, of Richland, an expression of congratulation to Coba by Col. James A. Hoyt, of Greenville; a condemna tion of Senator McLaurin's course in forsaking the Democratic party by T. J. Rogers; a condemnation of trusts by G. Duncan Bellinger, and another simi lar bill by Mr. McCalla. Two protests against child labor in the mills were introduced by Solicitor J. Wm. Thur > mond and Mr. T. J. Croft, of Aiken. I TIIE LOCK-OUT PEOPLE. I In Mr. McCall a's resolution was cm ! bodied a clause deploring the condi ! tion of the locked-out employes in thb Horse Creek Valley millo. Another resolution along the same line was in I traduced by Mr. Cole L. Blease, of Newberry. It reads as follows : "Whereas, This convention has heard with profound regret that the opera tives of the cotton mills of Horse Creek j Valley, in Aiken County, are in dis tress, caused by the action of the cot ' ton mill presidents in ordering a lock out in aaid mills, because of a strike in a cotton mill in the State of Georgia. "Be it resolved, That this convention hereby extends to the . operatives of Horse Creek Valley, on account of their loyalty to the Democratic party in the past, every assistance possible to relieve them from the screws of. op pression. "Resolved second, That we condemn the acts of the said mill presidents, as heartless, unwarranted and unjust, causing untold Buffering and distress among the people who constitute one third of the entire population of Aiken County. "Resolved third, That we call upon all law-loving citizens who feel that the poor laboring whito men of our State aro unjustly prohibited from earning an honest livelihood, to extend to the people of Horse Creek Valley moral and financial aid. "Resolved fourth, That we demand of our law-makers the enactment of such laws as will relieve and forever protect tho laboring people of the great State of South Carolina, who are the bone and sinew of our land, from such unlawful treatment in the future, and such other laws we demand as will prevent the crippling of values of real estate and other property by combina tion of capital." SENATOR TILLMAN THERE. Senator Tillman, who is a member of the convention, was present in the Edgefleld delegation. THE PLATFORM. At ll o'clock to-night the platform waa presented and adopted without debr *e. The three points covered were impe rialism, monopolies and tariff for reve nue only advocated. The resolution expressing sympathy for locked-out cotton mill employes in the Horse Creek Valley, and condemn ing the mill owners for their cruelty, was finally adopted by a two to one vote. The pledge fixed for candidates for the Senate and House of Representa tives requires them to stand on tho party platform and to vote with their colleagues on party questions. It was not as extreme as had been anticipa ted. A resolution welcoming Cuba into the world of nations, declaring that she would be welcomed as a State in this union if she applied of her free will, and in the meanwhile declaring T VJU I ehe should have the beno?ts of recip rocity, vf aa adopted amid cheers. M'LAURIN CONDEMNED. Without remarks o. protest, a reso lution of a dozen words, condemning the course of Senator McLaurin, waa passed. By a standing vote, resolutions im pressively read by Seuutur Tiiiman speaking of Wade Hampton's service to his State in the highest terms were unanimously adopted. resolution condemning child labor in mills and declaring the age limit should not be less thau 12 years, was adopted, after some debate. After the convention adjourned ot a late hour, Senator Tillman was call 1 upon and addressed the body. THE TKUST PLANK. I The trust plank contains tho follow ing: I .Resolved, by tho Democracy of South Carolina in convention assembled, that wo re-affirni and endorse the platform of principles enunciated by tho State Democratic Convention of 1000, with especial stress upon the following sec tions: "That we view with alarm the power which the trusts, through tho Republi can party, are exercising over legisla tion and national politics and their ability to control the price of tho ne cessities of lifo without regard to tho law of supply and demand. Wo con demn the hypocritical attitude of the Republican lenders who abuse trusts and combines, while they uso tho money obtained from them and extort ed from the people to debauch the ig norant voters of the country. "That wo re-a til rm and endorse tho correlated sections of tho Kansas City platform upon the subject of trusts and imperialism." The convention decided to provide for two series of campaign meetiugs, one to include candidates for State offices, the other for candidates for federal ?nices. Senator Tillman, who had it all his way, spoke upon national Issues. Col. Wilie Jones woo re-elected State Chairman. FROM THE NATION'S CAPITAL. From Our Own Correspondent. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 20,1902. The attempt to Morganize the small national banks of the country mnde by the Republicans of the House Commit tee on Banking and Currency when they reported the Fowler Currency bill, which among its many objectiona ble features provides for branch na tional banks, was virtually killed for the present session at a conference of the House Republicans held last week* although no vote was taken and the conference adjourned to meet again qext week to consider the same bill. The death blow was given the bill by Representative Power, of Maine, who directed his attack especially upou the branch bank clause of the bill, of which he said: "It will Morganize our na tional banks, this plan for branch banks. The small banks of the coun try will either have to liquidate or go into branch banking." He told how the branch banking law of Canada had. reduced the number of banks in the entire Dominion of Canada to 85; and of how the law worked in the little Canadian town of Woodstock just ncros-. the border from his home, Honiton, Me., Mr. Powers said: "There were two private banks there. When the law for branch banks was enacted in Canada these two banks were ab sorbed by the great banks in Montreal and the interest rate, instead of de creasing, went up." Tho Republican bosses may try to put this bill through at tho next session, but it has been made plain to tuent that it will be too dangerous to try to do so before tho Congressional elections. The old bur usually successful'plan of using patronage to buy off opposi tion to administration measures is be ing used by Mr. Roosevelt on tho Re publican members of the House who aided the Democrats to overthrow thc bosses and add ibo amendment repeal ing the differential duty on relined sugar to tho Cuban reciprocity bill. Tho Sugar Trust has ordered that amendment killed, because it would decrease its profits about 98,000,000 a year. The Republican bosses in the Senate have told Mr. Roosevelt that they can kill it in the Senate, and he is now trying to secure the Republican votes needed to get the House to agree to the bill as it will be passed by the Senate. There is some very desirable Federal patronage that is now or soon will be available, and this Mr. Roose velt is offering to give the Republican kickers of the Honse to reverse them selves and vote as the Sugar Trust wishes them to vote. If Mr. Roosevelt succeeds in this dicker, as now seems probable, the kickers may find them selves called to account by their con stituents. This isn't a good year for Congressional wobbling. It is difficult to shake off the bossing habit. After President Palma had been duly inaugurated President of the supposedly independent Cuban repub lic Secretary Root ordered him by cable, not to receive tho credentials of the British Minister to Cuba, who was in Havana, until after the U. S. Minis ter, who was detained in Washington by tho delay of tho Senate in confirm ing his nomination, had delivered his. Tho minif *.er whose credentials aro first uiujy AAA? JJ.-SSV, 4?. received will become the dean of the Cubau diplomatic corps. Palma will obey, of course-he cannot afford to do otherwise-but such bossing is not cal culated to make either him or other intelligent Cubans love this govern ment. Senator Pettus, although one ot the oldest members of the Senate, is one of its hardest workers. A visitor to his committee room found him at work at 7 o'clock the other morning, and asked, him if ho wasn't at work unusually early. Ho replied: "Oh. no, I go to bed reasonably early every night and then I get up at 5 o'clock in the morn ing, so that I am down here by seven. ! I am eighty-one years old and sound i in mind and body. The only thing I lack is money, and yet I don't know as I ought to complain. I notice that the men who made money and then retired are all dead. Retiring from business seems to be falal. Themen who live long aro tho men who like myself, are poor." Charges have been filed with the Civil Service Commission alleging that money has been habitually used by low grade employes of the Pension Burean to secure promotion, and the Commis sion is alleged to bo making a quiet investigation. Such investigations are always quiet, because then if they hap pen to go against those with too mr?sh pull to bo fought they can be husUeri up without public scandal. Three and a half million dollars were added to tho Omnibus Public Build ings bill by tho Senate Committee, and tho bill now carries $20,041,180. The whole bill is ono o? most daring log rolling Bchcmes over put through Con gress. Men who are fully cognizant of the dan ger of the precedent sot hythe bill have allowed themselves to be silenced by appropriations for build ings in which they aro interested. It will not be surprising if some of them live to regret sanctioning this measure. Appropriations of public mouey should not be made in this way. The only rigat way is for every appropriation asked of Congress to stand or fall upon its own merits-an impossibility with an Omnibus bill. It is now regarded as certain that this session of Congress will extend well into July and possibly into Au gust. No vote is expected in the Sen ate on tho Philippine bill before the first week in June. Then the Nicara gua Canal bill will be taken up, ar d will require anywhere from two to ih o weeks to be disposed of. After that tho Cuban reciprocity bill will be brought forward, but that measure is surrounded by so many uncertainties that nobody is attempting yet to guess how much time it will require. The Republicans are trying hard to place the responsibility for prolonging the session upon the Democrats, bnt there is really no reason for such attempts. Whatover responsibility there may be belongs to the majority and wil te placed upon them by tho people. - ? F ???? Eureka Items. The lemonade party given by Mr. and Mrs. Bud Smith at their pleasant home at this place Saturday evening was a brilliant social event. Forty persons accepted invitations and were present.
