'John Marsh, our young friend who
clerks for Mr. E. J. Norris, tells us that
after the speaking at this place on

clares that if Farmer Ben be defeated

In answer to Mr. Jas. S. Smyley's

less," to hear them as they met in

so far lost confidence in him and
respect for him .that only about
one thousand people including
women and children went out to

The editor of one of the other
county papers in commenting on
the resolutions adopted by the
members of the Huiet Democratic
Club, said, "The Denny Democra
cy didn't expect anything." Well,
the reason is plain enough why
"they didn't expect anything."
After waiting and hoping and
"expecting" 'for fourteen long
years of ring-rule and getting
nothing, how can the Editor of
the Monitor blame "the Denny
Democracy" for not "expecting
anything?" With a decade of
crushed, mutilated hopes, anx
ieties and "expectations" staring
them in the face from such mental
giants as Hampton, Thompson,
and Richardson, seriously, would
they not have been mighty foolish
to "expect anything" from sol
"weak," "insignificant," "idiotica"
sort of fellow as Ben Tillman?

on the 18th in response to a
telegram sent him by the citizens
of Newberry. Mr. Sheppard
spoke in the opera house to a large
audience, composed of advocates o?
both parties. In his speech he
spoke of the extravagance of the
present administration, and
intimated that it was the cause oi
the present pricev of cotton. Mr,
Sheppard said he was in favor ot
taxing the people according tc
their wealth. At tho close of hil
speech the applause was vory great
for both parties.
