Friday Morning, Jnae 17,1870.
TU? Work ot tb? Reform Convention.
Tho Reform Convention assembled on
the evening of Jone 15, and completed
ita work by 6 o'clock p. m. on yesterday.
Our readers will observe elsewhere the
Declaration of Principles and tho name
adopted. It will be found that the Con?
vention planted itself upon liberal
ground. It will be seen, also, that Judgo
Ii. B. Carpent r and Gen. M. C. Butler
have been nominated for the offices of
Governor and Lie atenant-Go vernor.
Bovoral of Gen. Butler's personal friends
were disposed not to allow tho use of his
name, but at the instance of tho colored
delegates, his name was put before, tho
Convention and ho was unanimously no?
minated. The President of tho Conven?
tion was authorized to appoint an Execu?
tive Committee of Thirteen.
Tho Union Reform Party, with its
platform and its standard-bearers, is now
in the field. The movement for KEFOHM
has now boen put formally in motion.
We do, of course, cordially com mond
the movement to general support. Tho
aotion of the Convention has been, in
our judgment, the best that was possible
ander all the circumstances of tho case.
The remarks of tho delegates, both
white and colored, were generally earnest
and to the point. Let us now indulgo
the hope that our expectations will be
realized. For the reform moromeut, tho
Convention bas given tho platform and
the men. Let thc work now be carried
on to its logicnl consummation. Let our
people, from the upper to tho lower
country, do their duty.
The Convention met at 10 n. m., in
B. K. Kinloch offered a resolution,
regulating the seating of delegations by
Counties, tho Secretary calling tho roll
Bernard O'Neale offered a resolution,
that tho vice-Presidents be seated on
M. C. Butler, Chairman of Committee
on Platforms, read the report, request?
ing that it lie on the table for tho pre?
Tho Chairman of thc Committeo on
Platforms report Gen. Wagener's paper,
and advise that it be printed with pro?
ceedings of this Convention.
Tho Committee on Platform beg leave
to submit the following report:
This Convention, representing citizens
of South Carolina, irrespective of party,
assembled to organize tho good people
of the State in an effort to reform the
present incompetent, extravagant, pre?
judiced and corrupt administration of
the State Government, and to establish
instend thereof just and equal laws,
order and harmony, economy in public
expenditures, a strict accountability ol
offieo holders, and the election to office
only of men of known honesty and in?
tegrity, doth declare and announce thc
following principles npou which meu ol
all parties may unite for tho purposes
1. The fifteenth amendment of thc
Constitution of the United States having
been, by tho proper authorities, pro?
claimed ratified by tho requisito numbei
of States, and having been recoived ant
acquiesced in as law in all tho States ol
the Union, ought to bo fairly "aclminis
tered and faithfully obeyed us funda
2. Tho vast changes in our system o:
Government, wrought by tho iuternn
tional war between the two sections o
the States, and following in its train,
are so fur incorporated into thcconslitu
tious and laws of the States and of th<
United States, as to require that tbej
be regarded accomplished facts, havinj
tho force and obligation of law.
3. This solemn and complete reoo^ni
tiou of the existing laws brings tb*
pooplo of South Carolina into au entir
harmony upon all questions of civil auc
political right, and should unito ?il
honest men in nu earnest and detcrmin
ed effort to establish a just, equal nm
faithful administration of tho Govern
mont, in tho interest of no class o
clique, but for tho benefit of a unite
Tho committoo also recommend th
adoption of tho following resolution:
Resolved, That this organization b
known ns tho Union Reform Burty c
South Carolina. Respectfully submit
ted, M. C. BUTLER,
Ch ni rm ;iii.
On motion of Mr. Ellison S. Keitl
tho report of the Committee on Pltitfon
was taken up for discussion.
E. W. Seibels, Chairman of Cominillo
un Resolutions, reported no resolution.1
W. T. Gary, Chairman of Commit te
on Manner of Voting, reported, fir.->l
that voting bo viva voca; second, tb?
each County be entitled to tho numbe
of votes it is ontitlcd to ju the lowe
bouse of the General Assembly; an
third, that tho Chairmau of euch delegi
tion, upon the call of his County, rit
in his sont and announce thc vote.
The Secretary read tho proceedings (
yesterday, which were approved.
E. S. Keitt moved to take up the n
port of tho Committee on Platform, nn
proceeded to discuss the rccommondi
tious of tho roport. He held that Prov
denco controls all human affairs, slaver
no less than freedom; and from tl:
annlogy between Egyptian anti Amer
can emancipations ranged tho latter i
tho class of progressive movements that
au ould mest the approbation of mankind.
J. B. Kershaw,!rose to explain tho in?
tent and purpose of the paper reported
by the Committoo on Flatform? He
deprecated the issue between tho tiro
races, and detailed the trickery through
which tho colored raoe has been alienat?
ed from the white. This movement is
designed to lift South Carolina to a posi?
tion higher than she has ever held. Tho
colored maa mast be convinced that this
is a bona fide aad honest advance made
to tho colored race. Wo may uot be able
to defend every point of recoastructiou
as iu every respeot resting upon consti?
tutional construction; but, what is
better, we mean to carry them out, both
in letter aod spirit. Upoa the point of
making nominations, ho was fully in
favor of it; holding that for this Con?
vention to adjourn without nominations,
would bo to scatter tho movement to tho
E. S. Koitt objected to tho report,
upon tho ground that it is confined to
tho past and present, while it should look
as well to the futuro, so ns to secure the
cementing powor of hope to the diverse
elements of our State.
M. C. Butler rose to second the posi
tiou tLiken by Gen. Kershaw. Tho occa?
sion is full of solemn earnestness. Mis?
rule is running riot in our State; and
gorging vultures are eating out our pros?
perity. This results from the antagonism
between the races; aod for this the whites
are responsible. They have not mot the
issao as they should. Gen. Lintier gave
a resume of the events since the war;
criticised the course of the Demooratic
politiciaas, showing ifs faulty policy and
defended this movement as thu true oac.
In answer to tho query, why uot entor
the Union Leagues, he replies: becauso
that course is a device to bind the freo
citizeu in political chains worse than tho
African slavery from which the negroes
bave been freed. If this movement does
1 not succeed, it willbe.becausc it does uot
deserve success. What is tho objection
to tho Republican administration iu
South Carolina? It is not Republican.
The Governor, electod by negroes, has
neglected tho interests of that ruco.
Wheo ho wants dirty work done, at SIG
a mouth, ho employs a negro; but when
he waots a man to do nothing, at $00 a
mouth, he seuds to Ohio for a white man
to do it. Tho imported leaders of tho
radicals do uot wish us to make nomina?
tions. They want us to lio supiue while
they fill their pockets. The spirit o?
progress is advancing in Europe. Spain,
France, Russia, and Prussia, are emanci?
pating all serfdom. If the Exoeutivo of
South Carolina can prove the charge1
agaiust him to be untrue, wc may with?
draw our opposition from him. The
murder of Randolph was a political trick
and the fate of Tolbert is u murder bj
tho authorities of tho State. If tho Go?
vernor know that tho Ku-Klux killed
Randolph, why did ho not hang them foi
tho crime? Where aro the homes that
the Land Commissiouer has purchased
for the poor men of the State? As tc
what the Couventiou should do, Gen. B,
maintained that nominations should In
made; el60 the movement will fall ti
nothing, for wont of a standard-bearer,
E. S. Keitt rose for a third word. L
in favor of nomiaatious.
Jonas Bird (colored) spoke on th<
movement. He thought it unfortunate
that it was not iuaugurated sooner; bettei
late than novor. Endorsed every won
that Generals Butler aad Korshaw hav<
said. Has all confidence ia thc peopli
of South Carolioa; whatever a Soutl
Carolinan says, bo means aud will do
Tho speaker holds that his owa interos
aad that of his race are identical, ant
with this thought in view ho conies t<
tho Coaveotioo. Detailed tho origia o
tho carpet-baggers, their penniless ad
vent and their present wealth. Rcferre<
to tho 390,000 stolen, iastcad of givea ii
lauds to the poor. These waetchos tuki
tho negro by ono hand, and pat tho otho
iuto his pocket. Vontillates tho phos
phate bill, showing how it was bough
through the Legislature and grinds th
poor man; but 800,000 goes into th
pockets of Legislators, whilo tho negr<
may (os far as they caro for it) go to tb
deuce. The speaker showed how th
Inst election was carried by promises o
lands and mules and corn and offices
J. P. Thomas roso to express hi
hearty appreciation of the scatimonts o
tho speaker. Endorses fully tho report o
tho Committee on Platform. Tho move
mont rises above the level of party worl
to the dignity of a grand reform
march irrespective of party and of rac?.1
It aims to elect a Governor neither o
tho whitu mau nor of tho negro, but o
the wholo people. The speaker arraign
the Executive of tho Stato for mal-atl
ministration, and the General Assembl,
for corrupt legislation. Ia order to giv
point and edge to this movement, nomi
nations must bo made-tho moremen
must bo matlo persoual ami tho issue me
Fenwick (colored) rose to express hi
pleasure at tho faut that light is begin
ning to dawn iu South Carolina.
J. B. Korshaw askod leave to arnon?
the report, hy strikiug out "verities,
and inserting "accomplished facts.
Leave granted. Geu. K. proceeded t
explain why tho movement is so hito.
