The List of Candidates.
The Iistf of candidates is growing,
y not so^ fast as we would wish, but it
.. grows appreciably. Since our last local
allusion td the names in our persimmon
pole column, we have added to the list :
^. J. H. Edwards for the House of Repre

on list Friday. Professors Lanham,
Rankin, and'Spessard have left a very
pleasant and indelible impression, of
themselves and their work, on our

Tillman had anything to do with ir.
Mr. T. L. -Mirior, of Coopers town

cotton blooms. Master George Reece,
son/of our fellow townsman Mr. J. W.
Reece, also sent us one on the 20th

about reducing the acreage in cotton?
?. It ia beginning to dawn on us-as such.

been doing good so long that his

he cannot hide'his light under and

mean. I was walking along whe:

An Interview With Gov. Tillman
in The Columbia State.
In talking of the Third party
danger in this State connection
with tho national situation,
Governor Tillman said that he
foresaw before he loft here that
there was almost a certainty of
an electoral ticket of the Third
party being placed in the field in
this State. Continuing, he said:
"But whether we can keep it off or
not I cannot attempt to say. I
can't say what is going to be done,
but I fear that wc are going to
have a Third party attempt. I
will fight it because I believe it
means unlimited trouble and
disaster to the peeple of;the State."
He called attention to the edi
torial appearing in the Cotton
Planta -Jew days ago which was
Third party ism all over, and
remarkod thaC "Stokes is pledged
to support the ticket, as all tho
rest of us are."
When aaked if he thought the
Sep?t,'mher convention woald
endorse the nomination of Cleve
land, he said: "Of course it
will-that is, that's the way it
looks to me now. However it is
entirely too early for me to give
any opinion other than my own,
which is, that I ' will support the
ticket. I can't say anj'thing else
now, but let me attend this week's
campaign meetings, and feel the
public pulse, although the section
of the State to which we are going
this week 'is not so much
impregnated with Third partyism
as the other portions, I can bettor
be able to review the situation."
In regard to his stand against
Cleveland, Governor Tiilman said :
"I fought Cleveland's nomination
because I thought his policy was
wrong; ^because he prejudiced
several Southern State, and'
because I believed that he could
not carry New York. But now I
give up my opposition as he is the
nominee, and will fight for his
In regard to the Third party, he
requests that the statement be made
that he reiterated all <iiat he has
ever said concerning the dangers
involved in such a movement in
Goveanoi Tillman said that he
did n it , believe Cleveland's
nomination would have any effect
upon South Carolina State politics.
When asked whether, in his
opinion, Clevelaad would be elected
or nott he -aid there were ..too
many contingencies ahead for
him at this time to feel warante.d
in giving an opinion. It wonld be
depend on the treatment that
would be accorded the New York
D?rnocracy by Cleveland.
When asked how the delegation
had been treated in Chicago.
Governor Tillman said: "We
were treated with as much
consideration and courtesy as we
could have expected." '?
AND TALBEBT IS STRONGER STILL.
W. J. Talbart has also returned

now than the Governor, so those
that have talked- with him say,
and says that the Alliance will

having granted much more of the
Alliance demands than could have

Thes tereotyed report of over
whelming and overpowering num
bers which came up from lost
battlefields called out from Mr.
Lincoln one of his best anecdotes.
An old Illinois friend ofMr.Lincoln
who had two sons in the army of
the Potomac called to see him at
the White House in the summer
of 1S92, and feeling a parental
solicitutde about the safety of his
sons and their chances of success,
asked Mr. Lincoln how many men
he thought Jeff Davis had in the
the field. Lincoln'erspondedthat'
Jeff Davis had 3,000,000 men in
the ' field. This startled the old
man. After regaining his
composure he asked Mr. Lincoln
how he knew this fact, he replied :
"I have 1,000,000 men in the field
and whenever one of my generals
get whipped down -in Virginia he
always says that the rebels had
three men to one. Yes, sir, I have
1,000,000 in tho field and Jeff
Davis has 3,000,006."-New York

"Is there a man in all this audi

continued, folding her arms, and
