With a few seemingly "to be continued"
threatening*), the wet weather has apparently
left us lor a Reason and with It our anxiety
In regard to the safety of our crops, especially
that of the bottom-land corn. We are exceedingly
grateful for the few days ot sunshine
-we have bad, and hope they may continue
awhile. Pretty weather like this puts
new life, new hope, and new Joys into our
souls, dispelling all the cares aud gloom that
have settled in them.
Sociables are still in vogue in our little
town. There was one at the residence of Mr.
J. D. Fooche on Monday night, the 6th iust.,
and one at Mr. J. 8. Anderson's on the following
Wednesday night. At first we had a small
attendance as the weather was very unfavorable,
but had a very pleasant lime. At the
second all our young people were present and
spent u very enjoyable evening together.
We had something new last Thursday night
at Mr. David Aiken's home. It was a rainbow
party, in which each young man present
hemmed some young lady's apron. A prize
is given to the one who hems best, and we
had that night, Mr. Editor, a perfect Illustration
of the danger of foreign (?) cen: petition.
Mr. Coleman, ol Edgefield, a stranger to most
of us, won the prize. Though be is a stranger
to most of us, and though we are not well
acquainted with him, we venture the assertion
that he has been keeping one of those
halls where men."have to" learn to sew. Af
ter the sewing we played several games, partook
very freely of the iced lemonade and |
cake so nicely served, and left for our homes,
much Indebted to our kind host and hostess
for a very pleasant evening.

Mr. F. E. Hodges of Cokesbury assisted
some In the meeting.
Messrs. Will it Ice, Jeff. Coleman and Robert.Stuart

and Miss Agnes Kice spent ttie day at Harris'
Springs one day last week. Another trip has
been spoken of, but not yet fully decided.
The writer has very pleasant recollections oi
a day spent there last summer, and hopes
that ere the season closes, the young people
will gooverand spend another day there, If

Mr. H. E. Bonner will have Mental and
Moral Philosophy and Astronomy In addition
to other work.
Miss Annie B. Gay will have Literature.

with the school for the past two years

guarantee of the work she will do in the future.
She was educated at Holllns Institute.
Miss H. P. Crawley, who was a member of
the faculty the past year, will be connected
with the school again. Miss Crawley Is one
of the most thoroughly equipped teachers the

to teach almost anything In the course,
her preferences are Mathematics and Lntin,
and her work next session will be mainly In
these two departments. Miss Crawley is a
graduate of Danville (Va.) Female Seminary.
Miss Carrie F. Bell, a full graduate of the

EVIDENCE OF PKOSPEKITY,
An Immense Clothing1 House to be

The citizens of Abbeville and surrounding ,

Cohen, representing three ol the largest and
most reliable clothing concerns In this county,
will open an exclusive Clothing and

that so rich and so competent a dealer has

at a Political Cancuas ? Nobody
Whether or not to put out an Independent
ticket and to call a State convention was the
subject of the hottest kind of a discussion In
the big conference of the Butler leaders last
night. The conference was held In the dining
room of the Hotel Jerome and there were
thirty or forty men present, supposed to represent
a large number of the counties of the
All day yesterday the old familiar faces of

at the (Jnion depot coming in on every train
?pale, anxious faces; expectant, cunning
faces; fat, well-fed faces; emaciated, hungry
faces ; all, the faces ot those Intent upon saving

From Edgefield were Major Carwlle, W. R.

Among oilier newspaper men on band were
J. Wilson Glbbs, W. W. Ball, of tbe Journal,
and Kobn of tbe News and Courier.
The conference was In session until 1 o'clock
this morning, and when it adjourned it was
stated that a resolution had been passed not
to give anything to tbe newspapers. Certain
newspaper men, however, were not dependent
on wbat was to be given tbem.
IL is known that a chairman and a secretary
were elected nnd that a series of resolutions
were introduced. These resolutions
precipitated a discussion lasting for hours.
It is not known what they contained, but
from the windows of the dining room of the
hotel could be heard the discussion in progress.
The longest and hottest discussion was. as
stated, on the question of calling u convention
aud putting out a ticket from governor
down. There seemed to have been strong opposition
to this course, but tbe men against it
were evently in the minority, because when
a speech in favor ol a convention was mode
the cheering and applause was loud and
hearty. All the indications point to a ticket.
It is known that three men are being considered
for the nomination for governor. The
name of Judge Hudson Is among the number.
Tbe opposition to him is that he is too old to
make a light. |
During tbe discussion many outer tnings
were said about the Tillmanltes and tbe majority
of the speakers urged a fight no matter
whether ihey were defeated or not. One man
said that he was In favor of beginning tbe
flscbt now and passing resolutions afterward.
He said he believed in going at tbe business
with a rush and making a practical fight and
a hard light. Another said that the conference
ought not to attempt to commit those
present to any course. He wat'. In favor of requesting
the people to meet at their respective
county seats and deciding whether they
were In favor of an independent movement.
If they were, then a convention could be
t>e called and a ticket put out. Uutil this was
lone he was against the passage of the resolutions
calling a convention.
Senator Butler made a speech during the
evening. Amongother speakers was Captain
Uapers. Some man wanted the resolutions
read by section and adopted that way, but
'aptuln Capers was opposed to this and waDt;d
the resolution adopted as a whole. Adsther
man took the ground that tbe passage
ind publication of the resolutions would lose
irotes to the movement.
A great talk was heard aboui "the democracy."
and the conference seemed to consider
that It was the only gathering of democrats
In the State. National democracy played an
important part in the talk.
Reports were made from the different counllesol
tbe State and about tbe prospects of
winning. Some of those present took the
position that It would be better to make the
the tight only In counties where there was a
chance of winning and leave the others alone.
Tbere was muob talk about tbe small vote
cast, at tbe reoent primary and Aug oat Kobe,
of tbe News and Courier, arose and said tbat
be bad sent bis paper a tabulated statement
of tbe vote by counties. Tbe total In tbe State
was about 58,000, a tailing off of many thousands
from two years ago. Mr. Kohn aid not
express any opinion on Ibis light vote, but allowed
tbe conference to Judge for Itself.
Tbe conference gave signs of being
mucb Impressed and believed tbat la tbat
light vote lay all tbe chances of an lndependmovement
One speaker, with a great deal of entbUBlasm,
said tbat in 18T6 they had been at first
urged not to say or do anything but they bad
fought and won. They would fight and win
this time if tbe democracy would back them.
Captain Capers reported tbat be had received
many encouraging letters. He gave
tbe names of some of those from whom the
letters bad been received. At tbe same time
e reportea mat mere was some opposition to
tbe movement among men who were expected
to be Its friends. In one Instance a father
and a son expressed directly opposite views
on the matter.
After tbe conference bad adlonrned a member
said that tbe resolotlonB which bad caused
so mncb debate had been passed and be
talked confidently of winning. There is littie
doubt that tbe reformers and those conservatives
who believe in standing to the
rack will have to fight an independent movement
of tbe worst sort aid will have to fight
a ticket composed of strong men.
It Is understood that offers of financial assistance
have been recalved from varioni
Before the conference adjourned a committee
from different counties was appointed to
remain in the city and bold a meeting at ?
o'clock this morning. This committee will
probably formulate an address to the voters
of the State and make public tbe resolutions
From everything that can be learned it Is
believed tbat these resolutions call for a convention
for tbe nomination of .a State ticket.
It could not be learned what date for tbe convention
has been fixed, but tbe hot heads
want It right away and want to begin without
preliminaries. In the language of the gentleman
who spoke so beartllv, "Let's start tbe
tight and resolute afterwards."
A flghtis what they want and a light Is
what they will gel.
