WJNNSBORO, S. C.
Wednesday.'July 7, - - - 1S97,
The election of Professor Woodward
as President of the South Carolina
College will meet, we believe, with
great favor among the friends of the
institution. Though, we mav have
had personal reasons for desiring the
election of Prof. R. Means DaviV, we
now accept the election of Professor
"Woodward as a happy solution of the
situation. Professor -Woodward is
progressive, in the prime of manhood,
and a scholar fullj* up to the standard J
of the former presidents of the college.
Winnsbcro will recall hi? magnificent
lecture on Shakespeare delivered
here. Those who heard it
ca;: testify to the type of his scholarship.
Prof. Woodward tills the chair
cf Eoglish, snd he has no superior i:>
the South in his special branch. He
is fall of energy and srubitious. His
executive ability is 10 he tested, but
from our knowledge of the man we
believe that ihe college will move
forward under his administration.
The chief thing for which the friends
of the institution should be thankful
is the defeat of Mr- Mu*; field. His
name was not presented, because he
found thai be could not count on the
support of a majority of the trustees.
The opposition to Mr. Mavfield increased
the more it was agitated. It
originated not for the purpose of injuring
him, but that the college might
not be injured by his election. After
it was ascertain d that be could not be
elected, it was a wise thing then and
there to elect a president. A postponement
until next vear might have
resulted in the election of Mr. Mayfield.
Tbe personnel of the trustees
might be changed by the Legislature
at its ncr* Region, and in the interval
between now and the next annual
meeting of the board of trustees the
college would have^been plunged into
politics, and next year beiDg a general
election veai\the position might have
been one for trades. There is such a
thing as choking off a candidate for
some particular o?ice by giving him
anchor ofhce. some prospective senatorial,
or congressional candidate might
have been saddled on the college,
without regard to his fitness, but merely
r*?*-?to spcve-thc cuds of some politician or
politician?. The college has . had a
narrow shave, but we believe it is all
the stronger for it. The defeat of Mr.
Mayfield tends to establish all the
firmer that no retiring politician shall
take refuge to the presidency of this
institution, when he has run his po

Ex-Sbxatoe Ieby, in an
interview uith a reporter of the
Columbia State, says that he
wlil run for the Senate if no Wrue
blue" Reformer enters the race. He
/ takes the position that the Reform
movement has been betrayed by some
men who have been more cr less
prominent in it. Ex-Gov8rnor Evans
-was in Columbia ai the same time as
Ex-Senator Irby. lie said that it did
not suit him to run for the Senate,
and in au$wer to a question about Mr.
Iiby, Mr. Erans said: "He has a
great many more friends than we have
credited hie with." Evaus will be
at the opening meeting in Sumter.
A man m winnsooro tens us inai
Irby will positively be in the race
It will be remembered that a lew
weeks ago, Larn Gantt paid *'a social
visit" to Irby. The Headlight then
had an editorial eulogizing Itby, and,
in substance, said that Irby was not
dead, poli-ically, and that the people
would call him into service again.
It looks like Irby has received "the

Twenty-nine miles bolow

some distance above. We traveled
from Knoxville to Chattanoog?one
hundred and eleven mnes?in me

several hours on account of a trainja

I voutlv, none other than the cold sceptic
could have done otherwise. I saw
the procession on Thursday, and had
duty or patriotism demanded ehould
have been in the ranks, notwithstanding
the intense heat and the raiD, but
I had my share of military show and
parade thirty odd years ago. I did,
though, what was better?hold your
ear down so wife will not hear?I held
my umbrella over the Nashville
beauty, who represented South Carolina
at the head of the column, while
she sat on her steed in the broiling
hot sun for half an hour perhaps, and
she seemed to appreciate it. I think
Tirinorlaca ?inrl Rpatv WPre in
it for a while, but retreated when the
rain came on.
Nashville is a great city, said to contain
about one hundred thousand inhabitants.
It is called the "Rock
City," as yon know, and it is well
named, for it not only stands on soil
liteially underlaid with lime-rock,
but is in a great measure built of the
same material, which seems to be a
most excellent building stone when
placed in a wall, but used as a step or
+*rtv onv nnvnnsA that-. reonires a broad
face exposure to the sua and rain, it
seems to be subject to disintegration,
and like our granite when exposed to
fire, scales off and cracks and crumbles.
These are the impressions I received
of it from observation and not
from hearsay. Nashvil'e stands on
both sides of the Cumberland River,
which Hows for some instance nearly
north and is navigable for some distance
above for good sized steamboats.
The eastern portion of the city is
iTnr\TT*n oo TToct Vnchvil 1a_ r>r Edo-fifield
and the two are connected by the
iron bridges Street cars aud electric
lights abound. I think they have the
finest system of the former I have ever
known in any city. Yon may get on
in any part of the city, pay your nickle,
run to the transfer office and change
cars for whatever point you wish to
reach, and without any additional pay
or even a transfer ticket, go to the end
of the line, no matter how fir. Nashville
is, moreover, noted for its fine
buildings and beautifnlly laid cff and
decorated grounds. Tee capuoi is a
magnificent .building on the highest
point ia the city, with well laid off
grounds. The postoffice is also a gem,
built in 18S7. She Southern Methodist
Publishing House is perhaps
among the largest of its buildings,
and being 'favorably located at ibe
northeast corner of the public square,
has lor a number of years been a paying
institution, the net earnings of
which are annually distributed
nvrmno-sf the different conferences for
the benefit of the superanuated and
wcrnout preachcrs and the widows
and orphans of deceased ministers.
But my letter would be incomplete
if I failed to mention Vanderbilt University,
situated on Broad street out
toward the southwest part of the city,
whose magnificent main building, together
with its numerous appurtenant
buildings and its lovely grounds,
shaded with an uncommon variety of
fine trees, presents to the eye of th<>
' v.iVinlrlrt" n ?h?ncr of rare orahdenr and
There are also many fiue church
buildings belonging to the different
denominations of Christians. I can
not venture on this line. The court
house too is a gem of itsgkind. There
are so many sights in ana around this
magnificent city that I must necessarily
omit many. Tne centennial exposition
grounds are lovely indeed,
and in them natural features exceed
those of Atlanta, but of the exhibits,
from my observation, I cannot say
they are superior or even equal either
in number or quality. But my letter
is getting too long, and yet the halt
has not been told. Through the kindness
of a friend I was favored with a
ride eleven miles out on the turnpike
road to the Tennessee Soldiers' iL-me,
where there are about sixty-five old
veterans well cared for, housed and
clothed and fed; those of them who
are able work the garden, attend to
the stock and do the cooking and
house work. They have a fine large
j brick house, and hi every way seem

from the class of 1846, and one |
from the class of 1840, Maj. S. S.
Tompkins, formerly of Edgefield,
now of Columbia.
It was fitting that those present
J should be reminded of the oldest livI
ing alumnus of tbo college, and Prof.
I R. Means Davis, with his usual grace
of manner and speech, arose and spoke
of Capt. Thomas M. Lyles, of Fairfield,
who graduating in the class of
1831, (sixty-six years ago?before
Victoria was Queen ef England), today
still lives at his plantation home in

young manhood still, as for the pa3t
sixty-six years, bis ready helpmeet ana
cheerful companion. They have raised
a family of eleven children, and since
the marriage of the youngest, fifteen
years ago, have lived as they began
when fresh from college and boarding
school?alone, happy in each other,
and actively interested in life. Capt.
Lyles, always a graceful rider, fond of
exercise, still rides each day over his
fields, and his wife is, as always, the
finest gardener, chicken-raiser and
house-keeper in uhe country.
Before the days of "female colleges,"
Barbamville?a few miles in the
suburbs from Columbia?was a famous
seminary for young ladies; and thither
in thOBe'days it was the highest ambition
of wealthy and fashionable young
Kirls to 4,go off to boarding-school."
Here came Eliza Peav, only daughter
of Col. Nicholas Peay, of Fairfield,
whose magnificent plantation extended
for ten miles along the Wateree River,
and here the South Carolina College
student wooe3 and won his school-girl
bride. Their experiences in common
dating from these days seventy years
ago, tbc current of their lives being a
long one, have made the man aud
woman more truly one than it is often
permitted husband and wife to be,
and now even the state of health of
one is an index to the state of health
of the other.
The alumni adopted a resolution
congratulating Capt. Lyles and his
wife upon their continued health and
happiness, and regretting that he could
not be present as he was at the meet
ing tour years ago.
It may be- interes.iug to note that
Capt. Lyles' an:estors were the first
settlers cf Fairfield, and he still owns
the "Lyles' Ford" plantation on Broad
River and Beaver Creek where Ephraim
Lyles was murdered by Indians
and Tories, and where the outlines of
an old fort are still to be seen. It is
remarkable also that this honored couple
reared seven sons, sending six into
the armies of the Confederacy, two to
die in battle and sleep in unknown
graves under Virginia's sod.
Think of the changes to our State in
the last seventy years. The pride and
prosperity of thi earlier days, the
tragedy, humiliation ana poverty 01
tbe last thirty odd years!
Here are a couple who have lived
through the great epochs in our history
and are living on as everyday folk like
ourselves, cheerful and hopeful; yet of
them we might almost say, (speaking
ot the glories of Fairfield County, I
whose prosperous past seems to U3*a |
tale of romance,) they stood by her
cradle and they followed her hearse!
Columbia, July 3, 1897. j. j. m. j
Mr. Editor: It seems that some ot
our citizens are becoming very much
interested in the condition of the public
roads. I must confess that lam
rauch pleased lo see our people are at
last waking up to and see the necessity
of grading our public highways and
putting them in a condition that we
mar travel with some speed and comfort
to oursclvea, and it will be a great
: saving to our stock and vehicles. With
our roads in good condition two mules
can do the work of four with much
greater ease and less danger than when
- ? a ? iLA..
mey are almost impavbiuxc as mcy at c
now. That the roacU should be put in
better condition all will agree, but as
to the plan no doubt there will be
many. As one very much interested I
have been giving the subject considerable
thought for some time, and will
submit the following or something on
that order: That we first instruct our
representatives to levy a two-mill tax
for road purposes. If I mistake n >t
that will place into the treasury about
six thousand dollars. With that
amouut per year we can place three
roa't machines, three road plows,
eighteen mules, and three hands to
operate each machine, These three
with the one owned by the county will
give us four machines at work. Place
one in ea?h section of the county and
the first year work all the worst roads
and continue to do so from year to
year until they are all worked. In
addition to the three hands with ?ach
machinc I would suggest that while
the machine is working a section the
hands of said section liable to road
duty be placed on the road at that time.
I believe that our representatives now
have the power to levy a two-mill tax
for road purposes, but no doubt that
they would like to be backed by the
voice of the taxpayers, and in order to
get at some conclusion I would suggest
that a mass meeting b9 held in the
court house some time in Au_g*st, say
the second Saturday, an^ give all a
chance to speak out or forever hold
their peace. Let the taxpayers from
different sections have the matter
agitated and all come together and
then we will be prepared To act intelligently.

does not prohibit him from carrying
out recommendations, especially since
the court did not transcend its powers.
The Governor thinks that the publication
of the court's action is sufficient
reprimand of Gen. Watts, but there
are many people in South Carolina
who must beg to differ with him.
Ellerbe, as Governor, has blundered
before and as commander-in-chief of

FARMERS AND THE TARIFF.
The needs of the farmer and the effort
to bring better prices for his products
were largely exploited on the
fliw of the Senate." and there was mnch
anxiety displayed to find out where
they could put in a iif'i; legislation lor
the farmer so that it would do the most
good, not specially to the farmer, but
io the political party in charge of the
government. Luckily for the llepublicans,
a batch of Southern Senators
had a ready-made trap for the unwary,
and they demanded the imposition of
duties upon foreign cotton, which was
readily granted by the Republicans,
who were looking a little ahead of this
demand. Now, there was no earthly ,

the frieuds of the farmers, especially
the Senators from South Carolina, who
have been closely identified with the
farmers in their poiitical contentions
for a number of \ ears. I* was unnecessary
for them to hunt up a new
battle-cry in order to make themselves
in accord with the farmers, and it was
still more useless for them to suggest
a new protective idea in order to cilch
the eye and ear of the farmer. t3ut so
it is that Senators Tillman and M>

including cotton, and the Republican
Senators at once accepted the proposition,
with a sly wink at each other
that the manufacturers must have a
'compensating duty" to place them on
an equal footing with the producers of
cotton.? Greenville Mountaineer.
