ARINENT IN POLITCAL
LIFE OF THE STATE
Resident of Pickens County.-Been
in Declining Health For a Number
of Years.-Of Much Inluence in
Political Life of South Carolina.
News reached Pickons Tues
day morning of the death of
David Franklin Bradley, of this
county, his demise occurring at
his home in Easley that morn
ing at about two o'clock.
*Mr. Bradley was one of the
best known and highest esteem
ed citizens of the state and has
Played a great and important
part in the development of the
state of South Carolina. During
war days and immediately fol
lowing the war and on down,
until the time he retired from
the active work of the State Mr.
Bradley was rne of the foremost
characters in Ra '
,-mioos fe went to
Florida from which state he en
tered the Confederate service in
April 1864. He was a memberi
of Company "A" Second Florida
Regiment, known as the Pensa
cola Rifle Rangers. He served
in this regiment until the battle
of the Wilderness, when he lost
his arm. After this misfortune,
he remained in the hospital for
a month. He was assigned to
duty in the enrolling department
of Florida, but while enroute he
was intercept ed by General Sher
man and forced to return home.
In 1865 Mr. Bradley resumed his
studies in school and until 1868
he studied and taught alternate
ly. In 1868 he was elected School
Commisioner of Pickens county
in which capacity he served for
six years. Later he helped to
found the Pickens S ntiniel of
which he was sole editor until
1885. In 1874 Mr. Bradley was
elected to the legislature where
he served two terms, and in 1878
he was elected to the State Sen
ate. To him, during his legisla
tive term fell the lot of making
this a prohibition county, and
from, and by, that one act, the
state of South Carolina, has, on
divers time, tried to make of the
Pickens county prohibiti.on law
a state law. To him also, is the
state indebted for the "no fence"
or "stock law," a measure which
he formulated and put through
as a local measure. applicable
only to Pickens county, but its
good effects were seen by other
counties and later it was made
a state law. To this act alone,
is the state indebted for its first
advancement and continued im
provement as a producer of fine
stock-horses, cattle and hogs.
Before the passage of that act1
the stock was turned out on the
"range" and allow~ed to shift for
itself. But after its passage all~
stock had to be fenced up. This
necessitated feeding, and feeding
brought on good stock until now
this state produces as good stock
as can be found in the United:
States. He was appointed by
President Cleveland because of]
his ability to the office of Inter-]
nal Revenue Collector, for South1
Carolina in the year, 1885, and
he served in this offi(ce for four
years. He was anmenber ofthe<
penitenti:ary directors of So'uth
Carolina, and during the last
three years he seve he was
chairman of that body. He was.
.. froI the
ir ioved his mem
..4p and he was buried on
Wednesday at high twelve in
Westview cemetery at Easley
by the brethren of this lodge
with lodge honors, assisted by
Bates lodge and other lodges of
Major Bradley, who was an
interesting character in the his
tory of South Carolina, was
nearly seventy years old, and
bad been in declining health
for a year.
Peace to his ashes.
GEORGE LEGARE GETTING WELL.
He is Coming Home Soon, But Must

The announcement, made in a
letter to The News and Couriez
from the chaplain of the United
States Army General Hospital
at Fort Bayard, New Mexico,
that George Legare is almost re
stored to health again, and that
he will return to South Carolina
before very long. will bring the
most genuine pleasure to thou
sands of Ipeople in this St ite.
Congressman Legare's work
has not w
.. aiIgton this winter, but
because everybody loves him
personally there will be general
rejoicing that he is fast recover
ing his health, and now needs
only to regain his strength to be
his normal self again. How
ever, the chaplain writes more
to offer a word of timely warn
ing to Mr. Legare's friends.
His letter follows:
To the Editor of The News
and Courier; If the unforeseen
does not occur, we shall ere long
restore to the nation, to the
State of South Carolina, to the
City of Charleston, to his family
and to a host of friends, your
distinguished fellow citizen,
the Hon. George S. Legare.
He did not come here a mo
ment too soon, and he has made
splendid progress towards per
manent recovery. He has been
up and about for some time and
is getting on beautifully. But
being solicitous for his welfare
I would write a word of caution
to the public reached by your
paper. What has been done
may be easil y undone by excite
ment and by a too early return
to the exactions of social, poli
tical and official life. Mr. Le
gare's trouble was not contract
ed in a day, but was the result
of long confinement indoors
nnd deficient ventilation in
crowded halls. Full strength
may be expected to return slow
We love this genial Southern
gentleman, and you and we
would have him long spared
to the service of his coutry,
amily and friends.
Dear peop!e of Charleston,
please be considerate of this
princely man lest in your joy
mnd thanksgiving over his re
urn vou unintentionally do
iPm much harm. He ma.y look
ell and be much less strong
han he appears to be.
You can best show your re
.ard for him and his family by
permitting him to remain in
comparative quiet for some
nonths after his return.
He has won all hearts here;
3e has been a maodel patient and
las made it his religious duty
o get well, and1 so far as human
kill can see at present, he has
