Mnii JEDITOR: I wish\ space in
your columns To correct certain
false reports now being ciculated
in the County, which inay prove
prejudicial'-to" m'y candidacy for
(Cleric of,Court, where my political
views are not so well-known as
they are to both factions in tliis
community. One report, in circu
lation in the north eastern section.
of the County, to the effect that I
was present at ??. caucus . of vthe.
Conservative or 'Sheppard party
on Monday, the 11th instant, in
Governor Shepp?rd's office, is a
bald-faced slander and an
unscrupulous falsehood, concocted
by some one totally d?void of
honor or veracity. I was present
on that day, ras-many" can - testify,
at.a conference of the Reform or
Tillman party in the Court House.
The other, report'" promulgated in
the eastern portion of Gray town
ship, that I had promised if Gov
ernor Sheppard was nominated at
the March , convention that I j
"would support him during the
campaign, is as false and erroneous
as the first report hereinbefor'
less with evil intent.
Were I in concert with the
Conservative or Sheppard party, it
would be my pleasure to do all' I
could in a fair and honorable way
to-further the cause of that faction.
But, as many.of the people of the
County well know, I hav*> been in
full sympathy and accord with the
Reform 'or Tillman movement
from its earliest incipiency ; and
those who know me best, know that
if I have a single.notable A charac
teristic it* is my persistent adher
ence to my own political and
other opinions when once formed.
I believe in every man standing
square to the front with one fac
tion or the other, and any intima
tion or report that I have acted
otherwise is an untruth, unwar
ranted by any act, word or deed of

Elmwood Budget-Sad Death
of an Estimable Young Man.
MR. EDITOR: When I give you
my last communication I hadn't
heard of the . illness of Mr. Wi Hie.
Walker, who I am very sorry to say
died at his home on Thursday, the
7th, and was laid tenderly to rest
'neath the spreading oaks of
Berea Church the following day.
H?8 funeral was preached by the
Rev. P. P. Blalock fo a very large
number of sorrowing relatives and
friends. To lose Willie is sad
indeed. "He was greatly loved by

new house last week.' I suppose
he killed the fatted calf. You see
I don't say much in praise of Felix's
dinner because he selfishly with
held from me and all Elmwood

ajlic Pride pl jEdgefield.
.MiL^rdTou'.^it'h'ns always boc
a characteristic of our Edgefiel
people that they took a.great dej
of pride in havitg bold, brave, an
able political leaders, and it is
fact that no-"time perver" or "p<
litical trimmer," has ever bee
able to take a peri: nent hold o
thc affection, or admiration, of on
people. Look back over the lon
list of distinguished, men wh
? MK* - fa Wi N.
have represented* us and you ca
easily see that this is true; the
their positions and principles wei
well defined and well known, an
that anything like dodging an
"shifting, and swallowing anybody3
politics or platform ' to get offic
has been scorned and resented b;
our people. Not only this, bu
when en Edgefield man was airead;
in the field, in State, or Nations
politics, the others hali the manli
ness to'uphold and support, in
: stead of trying to defeat him.
Loor at the situation now. . -1
few years ago, R. Tillman trie<
to'-make ex-Gov. Sheppard, th
Governor of South Carolina, am
our people, gave him .a warm an<
cordial support, and if 'he was no
nominated or elected, it was no
due to any treachery at home. Hi
ev allowed the farmers' platform
but we folmd it impossible for u:
to make the rest of the State swill
low him. . ' .
In 1890 Edgefield.overwhelm
ingly nominated and supported
B. R. Tillman, but ex-Gov. Shep
pard was not among those wh<
were pushing his late friend anc
"advocate. What was the real cause'i
Was it envy and jealousy, or'was
'it pure political treachery, thal
made him. prefer Joseph H. Earle
to B. R. Tillman his own country
man and friend. Now "-'len Gov
ernor Tillman ia the Governor, and
according .to'all'the rules'br pre
cedents in this State, entitled tc
his Becoud term, this man allows
himself to'be used as his opponent,
to divide Edgefield county. Edge
field has always condemned unfair
play, double dealing, and-political
treachery, and sile will do it again,
Let vis compare the, two men,
and see which represents the brain,
and brawn, 'the pluck, and fail
play."of Edgefield the best, and
which is entitled to our support,
Has not John C. Sheppard always
been known as an "artful dodger':
and "political trimmer," and is
not Ben Tillman exactly the re
verse of such a character? Shep
pard as a "self-seeker," was ready
to, and virtually did, betray Gen.
Gary in 1880, and endorse thu
nomination of'Hagood,. wheivit:
was prematurely and unfairly if
not 'frau?ul?ntly forced on our
people in the May convention ; and
yet some of the oldest and best
friends of Gary are allowing them
selves to be used by Sheppard. Is
it not a fact that John C. Shep
pard- has just been dying to be
elected Governor of South Caro
-lina, and failing to get there by the
help of Ben Tillman is now allow
ing himself to be used by the op
position and the enemies of Gov.
Tillman in this county, as well as
'in theState, to try to defeat hiraji?
Our people know both of these
men, their habits,- character, and
capacity, Gov. Tillman, when
Sheppard compared him to Scott
and Moses, challenged him to a
comparison for honesty, integrity,
morality, etc., and said what we
all know to be true, that Sheppard
was "not his equal."
? great deal has been said about
".running," and Gov. Tillman's
"courage." Does not all Edgefield
know that Sheppard cannot bear
a comparison in that line any more
than he can in any other.
Look at the conduct of our
meeting the other day, when the
coolness and. courage and self
poseession of Gov. Tillman saved
us from a riot. We all know that
he is a conservative man, and does
not want any blood shed among
his friends and neighbors, but that
in real danger he would be as cool,
and as brave as a lion.
It was fortunate that the notice
of the Edgefield meeting was not
generally known, for had cur peo
ple been out in force they would not
only have resented the bringing of
a Barnwell bully and braggart here
to abuse an Edgefield man, but
would have been.hard to control in
their indignation against other
things that occurred that day.
Finally let it be said for Gov.
Tillman, that he has inaugurated,
and indeed created, a great move
ment for the education, relief, and
advancement, of our people. He
was warmly encouraged and en
dorsed by Edgefield in this great
work, and all of us who encour
aged and aided him before are in
honor boud to stand by him now
when treacherous friends and bit
ter enemies are trying to break
down his work and his adminis
tration before it is completed.
Let brave old Edgefield stand by
her colors, and sustain her bold,
brave, original son, and she will
but add another star to the bright
galaxy which .already adorns her

As Lhave written before, I have
been greatly puzzled at the many
phenomena of State politics this
year, but at last, I have arrived at
a satisfactory conclusion concern
ing the opponents of Gov. Till
man. My coBclusion is this : Gov.
Tillman is a great man. His mag
nanimity is not excelled in the
State of'South Carolina. Chris
topher Columbus startled the"jold
world by discovering a new world.
Many great philosophers have
been criticised and abused.
Michael, the arch angel, could not
convince all men of his justice,
should he condescend to reveal the
truth to them. How can we be
amazed at tbe abuse heaped upon
our -present Governor, when all
great men are hated by those who
try to rival them? This alone is
ehough to convince us that Gov.
Tillman is a great character.
The so-called Conservatives beg
for peace aud harmony, but wh?re
is the peace and harmony? Where
is that March convention? What
are its results? By it peace and
harmony were thrown overboard
and now strife and rivalry reign
throughout the State. How we
long to see the election over and
every true citizen enjoying the
blessings of a good result.
I am very glad to see so many
interesting correspondents to yom
