numbers will swell as the campai

is a campaign fund of $100,0

changes occur elsewhere alo

We fear that there is too mu
truth in the above, and Son
Carolina has only escaped heil
in a like predicament by the ma
agement,-thefine8se and the ner
of B. B. Tillman.
The election is over and tl
statement can in no wise aid
electing Tillman, but it is tra
and should be blazoned abroa
that but for Gov. Tillman and h
coadjutors, our old State wou.
to-day be engaged in a deal
struggle with Third party ism an
Republicanism, with the odds a
against her. We say death-stru,

what it would be-and no ma

A VOICE FROM NEW YORK
John R. Abuay, JEsq., now
prominent lawyer in New Yor
city, is on a visit to Edgefield, hi
old home. Mr. Abney will on hi
return go by way of Oklahoma
where he has some important prc
fessional engagements. In a shoi
interview we were glad to lear;
that Mr.'Abney did not think Gov
Tillman to be so black a devil (?
as the antis have painted him
and that while he didn't agre
with him on some subjects, h
certainly did in his advocacy o
the- $3 poll tax, the Agricultura
College, and the industrial achoo
for girls, and in his opposition t<
the financial theories of the Wal
street magnates. Mr. Abney think
that Gov. Tillman is sincere, hil
intentions honest, that the plat
form on which he has gathered hi
followers to be of sound timber
but that some of his methods ar*
at times faulty.
DEATH OF DR. GARRETT
The following account of th<
death of Dr. H. C. Garrett, a highlj
esteemed son of Edgefield, we eli]
^ from the Augusta Evening News
Dr. Henry C.Garrett, after ar
illness of four weeks with typhoic
fever, died at ll o'clock thii
His condition has been critical
for the past week, and the end,
which peacefully and quietly
came, has been momentarily
looked for several days.
The doctor waa a native ol
Edgefield county, S. C, and lived
there up to two years ago, when he
bought a lovely home and moved
He was 57 years old, and a
* graduate of a New York Medical
He was a brother of Mr. W. A.
Garrett of August, who was with
him at the time of his death, also
a brother of Mrs. W. J. Talbert,
Mrs. Collier Hammond, and Mrs.
W. Holmes, all of Edgedfield.
The Doctor leaves a wife and
six children. His only son is now
desperately ill with typhoid fever,
and there are grave fears of his
recovery. ^Dr. Garrett was a
prominent, citizen, and was well
known and generally admired. He
was a cultured and refined gentle
man and liked by all.
Dr. E. W. Bailey of Beaufort,
S. C., a prominent druggist of that
town, was m Macon yesterday.
. He said to the News that no matter
who wins in the' primary next
. Tuesday in that State, there is
going to be a bolt, and that one of
the hottest and most bitter cam
paigns ever known in modern
political history will be waged
between the Til Im?n i tes and Shep
It is feared that when this bolt
does come that there will be blood
shed in our sister State.

We know that many read

the advertisement which an

such distrust is a wise skepti

to keep them at cost ; and
secondly, we propose in the

everything we keep, except
