Our Edgefield marshals deserve
great credit for their efforts in pre
serving good order on last Thursday,
and their acts are praised alike by both
factions for the impartiality shown.
Those candidates who are making a
practice of carrying whiskey to church
and treating with it, had better, look
out, as by so doing they make three
enemies to.one friend. It is both poor
morals and poor policy.

Meriwether and Hibler.
The Edgefield county "antis" had, in
the beginning of this campaign, ' a
fighting chance in only two townships
out of the whole number of townships
in the county-those two townships
were Meriwether and Hibler, the first
named ?the birth-place and home of
Tillman, and the second the birth-place
and home of Sheppard. We are able
to announce that these two townships
wrllboth go for Tillman beyond any
The Day at Sand Ridge.
At a meeting of Alliancemen at
Sand Ridge, on Saturday, th? 9th inst.,
notable speeches were made by. Fresly
Ouzts, Dr. Price Ti m merman, Maj. J.
W. Aiton, and JJ H. Edwards, Esq.,
the last named, a candidate for the
Legislature. Mr. Edwards's speech
was so well received as to have cap
. tured even the few "antis" that live in
that vicinity. It was temperate,
thoughtful, and well delivered.
The Clarion Tongued Watson.
Col. R. B. Watson, the silver-tongued
orator of all Edgefield, adheres stead
fastly to his original declaration not to
run for any o Alee, notwithstanding
the pleadings of his friends, and their
name is legion. However, his voice
will not be silent, bnt will be heard
ever and anon during the progress ol
the campaign, and always for Tillman
and Reform. Col. Watson's presence
would grace any deliberative body and
very many hope that he will yet con?
senflPberve his district in the National
balls, and at no distant day.
A New Trick.
The latest trick of the "antis" to wu
Totes in Edgefield county, is to circa?
late the reports that Mr. So and So
Col. w. Maj. B., etc., all ardent Till
manites, have abandoned the Tillman
camp and are converts to Sheppardism
These tales are told to Tillmanites ir
order to indnce them to do likewise
But if you trace these reports up, yoi
will find there is not a word of trutl
in them, ard that on the contrary Mr
So and So, Col. W, and Maj. B. st il
muster in the Tillman ranks and ex
peet to do so until the c-o-w-i

Another scheme of the "antis" t<

?tructed to select four Tillmanites, bi;
friends, and work on ftTem in ever:
way he can to change them to Shep
pard. This is what is known as tb
"Dibble still-hunt." It is an old racke
among Repubobllcans and in Repub
Hean States, but is an entirely nev
thing in this State where the peopl
are supposed tobe enlightened fror

Insulting The Reformers.
A correspondent, writing from
Greenwood, says that Chairman
Dibble recently visited that town
and held one of his Sheppard
glorification meetings. One of the
speakers boasted that the vote he
cast for Judge A. C. Haskell was
the proudest act of hie life ; and
during the discussion the sup
porters of our State administration
were compared to "curs" and
We would like to know with what
sense of propriety can these ring
rule candidates, groomed by Dib
ble, now come before an audience
of South Carolina Democrats and
farmers, begging their support,
while uttering such dire and
infamous insults about them? We
are surprised that the ticket
representing the "culture" and re
finement" of our State would wish
to be placed in office and power by
the votes of "curs" and "coyotes I?
As nine-tenths or more of the far.

vile comparison was made, they

When Judge Haskell made thc
race against the nominees of the
Democratic party he was ar

nothing else of his candidacy
And it certainly comes with pool
grace from one of Sheppard's most
blatant supporters to boast of hh
voting against the nominees of hie
party in 1890, and then seek tc
cast ridicule one such sterling
Democrats as Tillman, Irby am
I. Talbert, because they accepted the

The Conservatives Sick of Their
Editor Register : Says the News
and Courier in a long, leading
edi toral :
"The conduct of the friends and
supporters of Governor Tillman at
the laet three campaign meetings
proves, we think, that they do not
want to hear the issues or the
campaign fairly discussed by the
candidates,and it is very question
able, therefore, whether any more
of the joint discussions, so-called,
should be held."
The Register has on various
occa8ions,from time to time,
warned the opposition press and
party that they were pursuing a
false and foolish policy, the
legitimate outcom? of which
would be that the people would
soon arrive at that point when
they would no longer tolerate a
campaign of abuse. Its warnings
have been unheeded, and now
that they find that they cannot
drive Governor Tillman from the
field by such tactics as they have
purused, but that a justly
indignant people have at last, just
as was anticipated^ refused to
tolerate such a campaign as they
were conductings. With blind folly
they pursued the Governor, until
at Florence "the lion turned and
put his foot upon the mouse ;"
but still governed by a fien dish
h a to, they followed him to Colombia
and repeated their outrage in the
face of the whole State keeping
the Governor and the whole
audience stading for two and a
half hours t;? listen to Colonel You
mans as he vainly and weakly ex>
hausted himself of his venom.
Governor Tillman stood undaunted
but the people could and would
stand it no longer. At Orangeburg
they utterly refused to hear Shep
pard or Youmans either; at Aiken
they listtned to everyone else, but
refused to let Youmans speak ; at
Edgefield Youmans'3 speech caused
all the trouble and at Lexington
they boldly announced that he
should not speak, that they would
hoot and driye him from the stand
if he tried to speak without
guaranteeing that he would not
indulge in his personal abuse and
Sheppard a*nd Orr had already
failed ignomiously to meet their
antagonist or to make any im
pression upon the people, and they
fell back upon Youmans as the
only resource left. His vanity
prevented him from seeing that he
was duped into putting his head in
the lion's mouht. Now they all see
it,and whipped and beaten at their
own game of howling down, they
begin to cry, "Stop the campaign?"
One of the speakers at Lexington
said to the speakers of the opposi
tion ; You see that you can make
this campaign whatever you want
it to be. No matter what plane
you pitch it upon, we must meet
you." This is true beyond doubt.
Orr and Governor Sheppard
commenced with abuse, but were
quickly made to abadon it as
foolish and unwise, and that part
of the programme was left to
Colonel Youmans.Although utterly
routed and discomfited at various
points under the flattery and
encouragement of a few bitter
partisans and Hask'ellites and the
opposition press, he persisted until
he found in his week's campaign
that he woula\no longer be tolerated
He is but the dupe of the opposition
and his own inordinate vanity,
and we cannot but feel sorry for
So far as its effects upon the peo
ple are concerned, the campaign is
already over. It has been fought
and won, and ended with the Col
umbia meeting-and outrage.
If the opposition wish to continue
the farce they can do so, but they
will first have to assure the people
that they have abaudoned theil
policy of hate, ab"se, slander and
Nothingelse will do. They must
do this and confine themselves to
the issues of the campaign or with?
draw from the field. They can with?
draw Colonel Youmans or not, ai
they see fit, but the campaign ol
abuse, not education, must be stop
ped or it is over.
The poeple see who is to blame
and will have no more of it. Thc
responsibility for all that hat
occurred, and that may occur, is or
the shoulders of the opposition, be
cause it is the result of their policy
It is a clear case of 'Tnt up or sh ul

SHAKEN BY EXPLOSION.
Destruction of Immense Powdei
Works Near San Francisco.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 9.-An ex
plosion occured at the Giant anc
judson Power Works, near Wes
Berkeley, shortly after 9 o'clocl
this morning, destroying the worki
and much property for severa
miles around. Five shocks were fel
in this city within a few minutes
the last four being of terrific force
shaking buildings, cracking a num
ber of walls and breaking plat
glass in buildings eight block
away from the water front. Th
scene of the explosion is twelvi
miles from the city.
The giant powder works wen
completely destroyed. One hudre<
and eighty men, principally Chin
ese, were employed there. It is noi
believed that one hundred and fou
persons were killed, iuelucLn;
three white men. The explosion se
the adjoining buildinings fire, an<
owing to the danger of additions
explosions no one is venturing nea
the works to stop the progress 0
the flames. The fire is close to 1
magazine containing 3.000 ton
of powder, and fear is expresse*
that it may be destroyed.
Among the white men known t
killed are Wallace Dickerson, Chai
lei Can hurdy and John Bow. Th
body of a Chinaman was found 0
the railroad track half a mile fror
the works. The remains of -a boj
frightfully mangled, were found |
near the scene.
Every window in the county jail
at Oakland was broken by ihe ex
plosion. All the windows in the I
residences in the town of West \
Berkeley were broken and several
buildings were reported destroyed.
At the office of the giant powder
company, in this city it was
thought that the Judson works,
which are located at Labelle, about j
three miles from the giant works,
were safe. The giant works are lo-1
cated at Point Isabelle and High
land near Stege, and comprime five
buildings and three magazines. Of.
these buildings the acid and nitro
glycerine were destroyed, and at
least one magazine is blown put
The other buildings not ijnme
diately destroyed tooK fire. The j
loss on the property wilL be great.
The explosion shattered the |
window all over San Francisco,
blew in the skylights, broke the |
plate glass on Montgomery avenue,
California stree. Monigomery
street, Kearney" street and othe
thorough fore and causedpeople to
rush into the streets as though the
convulsion was about to tumble all
the buildings about their ears.
Consternation was still at its
hightwhen.there followed two more
shocks, little less severe than the
terrific one which had just been felt
Glass rattled into the streets. ail
over the ci ty,and. nob a few build
ings, according to their inmates,
came near collapsing. The menin
the tower of the fire alarm station
were sure that that struicure was |
going to collapse.
The intensity ot the shock can
be appreciated when it is Known
that it was distinctly, felt at
Secramento, eighty miles distant,
and that windows were cracKed at
Napa and other points along the
bay shore, twenty-five miles from
the scene of the explosion.
??The powder company decline to
give particulars regarding the
number of men employed, but
three white men, heretofore men
tioned, are believed to be all the
whites Killed. As to the Chinamen
no definite information can be had
but the figures heretafore given
( 101 Killed) are probably exagger
ated. One magasine, containing
300 tons of giant powder and dyna
mite/escaped destruction.^ Even'-1
thing else wont. The loss .is be
tween $150,000 a - d $200,000.
A Good Point.
A darkey and a white man were
discussing the liquor question the
other day, when the white man
said the way to stop the whole
thing is to make more and take
the tax off. The darkey with. the
air of a philospher, said, "Boss,
dat's like piecin' a dog's tail to
make it shorter."-Clinton Cau
_ ov. Tillman gave the Rev.
T~. Richardson a poser at Florence
last Thursday when the reverend
gentleman asserted that Florence
was too religious to vote for a man
who would use "cuss" words. . 'He
asked the brother if Florence was
religious enough to vote for a
member of the Baptist church who
drinks and gambles. And that
preacher has concluded that it is
dangerous to fool with a buzz-saw.
