Fire at Trenton.
Mr. J. B. Norris, of Trenton, had
the misfortune on last Sunday
morning to lose his store and con- j
tents by fire. It was insured in one '
of Mr. G. B. Lake's companies, but
we do not know the exact amount
of insurance. Since writing, the

The Isham Glover Homicide.
After the failure of the first Jury
of Inquest to find a verdict in the
Isham Glover case, as published
in these columns last week, Solic
itor Nelson promptly organized
- another jury, stopped the funeral
corrtege and held a second inquest
This second jury found the follow
ing verdict: "We find that Isham i
Glover came to his death from gun
shot wounds inflicted by C. H.
Anderson." In the meantime Mr.
Anderson had surrendered to the
Sheriff and is still in jail, and we
hear will apply for bail this week,
having employed Messrs. Sheppard
Bros and W. C. Benet, of Abbe
ville as his counsel.
Bile Dem Cabbage Down.
Last week Ed Colgan came from
Trenton to Edgefield with a load
of cabbages for sale, but they
would not se] I. The colored brother
and sister would walk by the
wagon, look at them longingly
and say: "Boss,we wants 'em, but
we ai nt got no meat to bile wid 'em
when wo bile dem cabbage down."
An idea struck Ed. He was offer
ing his cabbage two heads for a
nick, but they wouldn't go without
the grease, so he went off and
bought 10 cents worth of bacon,
cue it in six slices, and laying a
slice on each of the heads offered
them at 5 cents a head, with the
"rasher" of bacon thrown in.
Right here we ring the curtain
down. No use to tell anymore of
it Everybody must know the re
sult. Those cabbages with the
streak of grease, went like hot
cakes. Ed. sold every one he had
and they clambered on the wagon
wheels, coupling pole, hounds, and

space to make a correction con
corning a report that has gained
currency in our section, based upon
i a communication in the Lexington
1 Dispatch, entitled "Why Tillman
' Wont do and Sheppard Will.'1
That title, invented by the Dis
patch, tends to make people be
1 lieve that I am a Sheppardite. Such
j is not the case, I simply took oc
casion to mention a few objections
to Ben Tillman as a man, but had
no fault to find with the Adminis
tration so far as he is concerned.
\ I have always been an advocate
; of the Farmers' Movement, and
. that is why I voted for Tillman
1 two years ago, and because of
those same principles I shall, vote
for him again. I did not say Shep
pard would do any better than
; Tillman would, and as my objec
! tions to him (Tillman) are merely
? personal they do not prevent rae
from supporting the movement.

A Tillman Mun Turned Ont oi
Mn. EDITOR : The following let
ter and comments thereon appeared
in the Johnston Monitor a week oi
two since :
It would be idle to even attempt
to contradict all the campaign
slanders that are scattered abroad
in this sad day. But" now and
occasionally something bobs up
that is so easily knocked into a
summer sigh, that we are compelled
to give it a lick in passing by.
Recently a report has been cir
culated in this county to the effect
that Mr. J. W. Timmerman had
been discharged from Pelzer fac
tory because he was ? Tillmanite.
Now, we- don't know who is re
sponsible for the report, but certain
it is that somebody has told "one
of them things."
The following letter, from one of
the factory officers to Capt. T. R.
Denny, will explain the situation :
PELZER, Aug. 1st, 1892.-Dear
Sir : Your favor of the 29th ult, to
Capt. E. A. Smyth, president, re
ceived. Capt. S. is away for a few
days, but I reply at once and state
that J. W. Timmerman gave his
notice to leave himself, and worked
out same and left of his own accord.
He was not discharged for politics
or anything else. Yours very truly,
W. E. OWENS.
Now I wish to state to the pub
lic and to the many enquiring
friends of Mr. J. W. T., especially
those of the Kirksey section who
are wishing for a true statement
from him as to why he left Pelzer,
that he is at my house quite sick
with fever and is unable to meet
the people as he desires and to
make a full and true statement as
to why he had to leave there.
It will be noticed that Mr. W. E.
Owens in his reply to the Hon. T.
R. Denny, most positively - denies
Mr. T's having been discharged
directly or indirectly, but says that
"he gave notice that he intonded'.
to leave and worked out same."
Now, the truth of the matter,
Mr. Editor, in the shortest way it
can be told, is this :
They passed an obligation
through the mill for the operatives
to . sign, pledging themselves to
> vote for Sheppard and Orr. Mr. T.
1 refused to sign it. Tho following
1 day his children were discharged
and offered their time at once. He
asked that they be allowed to work
a notice, which is two weeks time,
1 thinking that in the meantime he
might be able to make arrange
I ments elsewhere. Now this is the
? way he gave notice to leave. He
: informed me that he would have
i to leave Pelzer, and I at once tele
graphed him to remain there if
possible. He then went to Capt.
Smyth and informed him of the
condition of his family, (his wife
being an invalid and unable to be
) moved,) and asked him to be
i allowed to remain there, this was
i refused him and he was compelled
> to move.
I have two request's to make of
i my honorable friend, Mr. Denny,
L inasmuch as lie is so much inter
t ested: First, :hat he ascertain
i whether there was an obligation
passed through the factory requir
1 ing the hands to sign, pledging
i themselves to support Sheppard
and Orr ; second, whether or not
any Tillmanite who signed such
pledge has left Pelzer from any
cause. Will he be so kind as to
do that and give his information
to the public.
I will say in conclusion that as
Boon as Mr. T. is able to go out he
will give the public a true state
ment, under oath, of the whole
affair, and give the names of a
number of other men who were
treated as he was.
