Mr, J. M. Steward was called upon
and made a speech against woman

A motion was made and seconded
which carried that J. A. McArthur call
tho candidates together nftor the pri
mary election to elect a chairman and
secretary of the County Contral Com
mittee. The convention thon adjourned aud
everybody felt good the way that the
convention wus run, aud it certainly
looks like the Democrats wlllcontiuuo
in power after tho November electiou.
Some of tlio members of tlio con
ventlon who were not there at 1:30
accused tho chairman aud secretary of
calling tho convention before tho time
set, which was not dnuo, and thought
thut a steam rollor had been run over
them ou the way that the delegates
were elected and the resolutions adopt
ed. Wo will say to these inon making
this accusation that 't'time aud tide
waits for no man," and also that trains
leave the station ou the time set for
departure, und that was the way the
convention started in the afternoon,
promptly at 1:30. It is better to be
early than late, gentlemen.
About forty of the Democrats from
this city attended the convention. The
day was an idoal one for a convention
as it was very cool and comfortable.
