It is insisted that I refused to

Senate, ‘‘subject to the Democratic
nomination.” A verbal announce
ment by my friends placing my
name in nomination before the con

Schley was informed before the
die convention assembled that the
Sumter delegation nnd Mr. Mo
cking, or the Macon delegation,
would not confirm the nomination
made by Schley, which was a dc^
parture from tho rule heretofore
practiced, with the single excep
tion of tho convention of 18??: and
even in that instance the candi
date named by Schley -was con
In the exercise of her rights she
has by a unanimity almost unpara-
lellod chosen me as the defender of
nuv“ those rights, and in obcdlcnco to
her wishes, oflloisUy expressed, I
accede to her demands, and nceept
the nomination nt tier hands.
It is charged ns a reason why
tho departure wos had that l was
antagonistic to the city ot Ameri
cas. My reply is, that ever sinco
I have been a man grown, with tho
exception of tho years 1870 71,
Americus lias been tbo place where
my business lias been transacted.
1 have sold my uotton and buugbt
most of my siidplics in that city,
and even no further back than last
April I hauled a lot of cotton, con
taining twcnlv-llve hales to that
tributed whatever of influence 1
had to that end. I should even
now submit to tho outrage and
eonlcnt myself with a silent dis
approval of the wrong, had 1 alone
been the suiferer. But my county
feels that her choice has been dis
regarded, and bor known rights
denied, contrary to precedent snd
in violation of tho plighted faith of
the Democracy of tho 13th Sena
torial District, and in defenso of
her rights she enters her protest
and with great nnanimity begs mo
lo accept tbo nomination so warm
ly tendered mo by her citizens.
It is believed by Schley that the
result of the Senatorial Convention
did not speak the voice of the
counties of Sumter and Maeon,
but that tbo Convention was the
work of those who wished to ac
complish ends not avowed. How
ever this may bo, Schley feels that
she would bo untrue to herself and
to the Democracy she has so uni
formly supported were she to sub
mit to the wrong without entoring
her protest in a manner not soon to
Pormit me, fellow citizens, in
conclusion, to say.that.I am a
Democrat, organized Democrat,
and ono in whose heart heats no
other political emotions than that
the Democratic party should tri
umph, from the clectior. of the
Presidency down to ihe most un-
d’limbic olllce in tl.c gift of tho
If 1 should lie successful in my
candidaoy, I pledge you that all of
tho charges hatched up against me
shall meet such a flat denial by my
votes in tho Senate as will lorevcr
put to shame those who havo so
repeatedly given them cireulation.

How a President Is Fleeted.
Strange as it may appear, many
thousands of voters In the United
States have but vague and often
erroneous ideas in relation to the
manner In which the highest office
in the gift ot the people is filled.
Under the provisions of tho Fed
eral Constitntion we do not vote
direotlv lor a President and Vice-
President, but tor an immediate
body of eleotors, of which each
State is entitled to as many as it
has in both houses of Congress.
Thero being at present 32fi Re
presentatives in Congress and 76
Senators, the Electoral College
consists of 401 members, of whom
201 constitute a majority.
Tbo elcctorial nominees having
the highest number of votes in any
State, even though that number is
not a majority of all the votes cast,
sro legally elected. It may thus
happen that the eleetorlal votes of
a State may be divided between
two or more nominees. This, how*
ever, is a very rare occurrence.
The electors meet in their respect.
Ive States, and their vote, dnly
certified, is forwarded to Wasbllig-
ington, where the formal vote
takes plase in presence of both
branches of Congress.
Should any Presidential nominee
obtain a majority of the eleetorlal
vote, he Is declared dnly elected.
Otherwise it devolves upon the
House of Representatives to obooso
a President from among the three
candidates having the largest num
ber of eleetorlal votes. When an
alternative of this sort arises, caoh
State mnst vote rs a unit. Should
the election of 1884 bo thrown into
the House, tho vote of twenty

If wheat growing becomes general,
the Caucasian races can III afford
to compete in the market with a
product that is so cheaply raised.
Tho possible area for wheat culti
vation is immense. In considering
the possible product from tbit great
wheat territory, tho fact mast be
homo in mind that the soil Is very
rich, and that at least two crops
can be raised’on It every year.”

Last week an experienced work
man came to Athens, for the pur

as be learned that onr city had no
free schools bo went to Atlanta.
Public schools have done more to
