A pcrrsnl of the il.iilv papers with ref erence to Kiibi'i'ti'itoiial matters in this State, discloses tlie fact that the friends of lion. nines A Harris are exceed injr- ly wrath, and are moved to tnnkedivera nnd Huudry observations concerning the uiH'.er-ai)dd methods with which the friends of lix-Goveruor Robert L. Tay lor lire flmrced. Numerous conventions have convened in diff. tent comities, having for their ob ject the selection of delegates to attend the btate convention to nominate a can didate for governor. Some of the coun ties have instructed for Mr. Harris and others have instructed for "Onr Bob." I'he Harris followers have been pleased to term a large number of the meetings so held "snap" conventions; but it is significant, however, that this soothing appellation applies only to those coun ties that have lusti noted for Mr. 1 avlor. Tlie oh ail man of the County Demo cratic Executive Committee of lieuton County issued a call March 5 for a muss convention to meet at Camden Monday, March Ifj It is well understood here that the T.'iends of Mr. Harris will do all in their power to have the delegates instructed for the comptroller. , lour correspondent behoves that a large majority of the Democratic voters of lieuton Countv are for Bob Taylor. This being true, his friends should be on hand next Monday to see that ho is rep resented in the convention. Tin ti out, Democrats, in force, and use every endeavor to have the delegates to the State convention instructed to rep resent the will of the majority be he Harris or Taylor. The writer "of this not only believes tlie majority of the voters of the county are tor Bob Taylor, but ho is practically the choice of the Democracy over the entire State. Up to this date, out of the action taken iu 2J counties, Mr. Han is has revived by instruction nnd endorse ment, 14i votes, while iu like manner Hob Taylor has received 2-101. giving him a majority of sarao of 225 votes.
