DEMOCUATS, TCUN OCT.
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.
Camden, March 11.
