Saluda Wants a New County.
DEAR ADVERTISER: Fora score
.or more of years there has existed
a strong sentiment among the peo
ple of our Saluda section favoring
a division of our "mammoth"
! county. Any man who knows any
thing whatevi r of the geography
of Edgefield county, and who is not
enveloped in a covering of pure
selfishness and old fogyism is
obliged to acknowledge the reason
ableness of this desire.
A few years since a hard fight
was made on the "division" ques
tion, aud as every one knows, the
people of Saluda would to-day be
enjoying the innumerable advan
tages incident toa close proximity
to a court-house had it not been
for some unreasonable and useless
opposition from certain quarters.
We modify the above by saying
that from our standpoint it was
unreasonable and useless, for we
are not base enough to charge dis
honesty of motive to any Edgefield
The same sentiment that pre
vailed years ago is Bl ill prevalent
and has grown stronger with the
passing years. The same argu
ments adduced in by-gone days
still bold good.
Our isolated position, the enor
mous proportions of our county a6
it at preseut stands, the unanimity
of the people upon the question
within the prescribed territory |
coupled with a thousand other rea- i
sons that might be given appeal to .
all fair-minded men in strongest |
terms for a fair consideration of ,
this oft discussed question and a ,
speedy settlement of it upon the ,
high plane of "the greatest good (
to the greatest number." Smaller (
counties are sure to come. They '
must come. The progressive spirit ,
of the age proclaims it. Isolated ?
sections demand it. Men of brain ?
see the need for it, and realizing (
this necessity as patriotic, philan- j
thropic, unselfish personages, are
self-committed to a never-ending j
warfare favoring them. <
There is not a man in our county j
who will gainsay the energy, the (
pluck, and the patriotism of the (
Saluda people. Everyone must ]
also admit that we have borne j
with heroic silence the ?uconceiva- ?
ble disadvantages incurred from ,
our "far away" diptance from a ,
county sear. ]
^Wfl call attention to another
fact: Saluda's sons have never
turned a deaf ear to a single call
made by the people of any section
of our county. But like true, no
ble, patriotic men that they are.
responded with a heartiness that
has surely won for them the ad
miration they deserve.
This is campaign year. The peo
ple of Saluda not only want, but (
need and must have a new county. ,
And right here let me call their at- (
tention to this fact: If we don't
work with all our might and main
for it through the coming months (
and have things in shape for tho
passage of an act at the coming
Legislature giving us a new county
we are eternally doomed 1 The
people of Greenwood are not dead
but merely slumbering. Unless
something is done and done quickly
"Greenwood" county will be a
reality. If we will go to work in
earnest, hold a meeting at an early
day, appoint the various necessary
committees, and work with the
friends of the Greenwood county
movement, success will be attained
by both for both.
Remain indifferent or rather in
active and Greenwood will get hers,
no territory will be left from which
another can be carved, and we will
be left on a narrow strip between
the southern line of Greenwood
and the northern line of Lexington
to eke out a miserable, isolated ex
istence aud transmit to coming
Saluda generations an heirloom
which will forever be a sad and
shameful memento of their eternal
Now or never.
"There is a tide in the affairs of
men which if taken at the flood
leads on to fortune." The "tide"
for a new county has for years
been swelling. We can't help but
think it has reached its height.
Shall we take it at its "flood" or
idly gaze upon it while it abates?
Oh for a leader, a helmsman to ride
us safely on the bosom of this
wave! Will not our county press
be generous enough to aid us in
this fight and thus reciprocate in a
large measure the bountiful sup
port each has and still receives
from the people of our section?
Among the many aspirants for
legislative honors in the coming
campaign how many will hesitate
to agitate this question, pluck the
honore, win the4fight, and leave as
a monument to their memory the
country of "Saluda" and forever
receive the blessings and lauda
tion of a grateful people? "If any
speak, for him have we offended."

GEN. J. A. EAELY DEAD,
The Deathbed Scene One of
LYNCHBURG, Va,, March 2.
United States Senator John W.
Daniel walked into The News office
it ll o'clock to-night, and, in a
3ad voice, announced that his old
commander, General Jubal A.
Earl)', at whose bedside he has
been a constant watcher for some
days, had gone to his eternal re
General Early died at 10:30.
He passed away quietly, in- the
presence of his family and
physician, his kindred and several
intimate friends The old gentle
man seemed aware of his ap
proaching end early in the day.
Before noon he called ' for the
morning peper, as was his in
variable custom, and attempted to
read, but found that, his eye
sight was failing. Soon after ho
extended his hand to Senator
Daniel and calmly said, "1 want
to tell you gocd-bye, Major." He
then told his nephew, Cabell Early
farewell, after which ho dropped
into a quiet slumber. jLater in the
day the dying veteran asked
Senator Daniel not to leave th?
r nom, as he wanted to talk with
him about certain arrangements;
but from that time ho suffered such
intense pain that he did not revive
the subject. He met death un
flinchingly, with his hand resting
in Senator Daniel's.
No arrangements have been
made for tho fuuerel, and none
will be made before to-morrow.
Telegrams have been sent by Sena
tor Daniel to many of General
Early's ex-Confederate comrades
to-night, many of whom no doubt
will come here to attend the burial.
It is thought that General Early
has left a good estate, though he
was amandi astonishing generosity
especially to his numerous re
latives and needy comrades.
A Death-Like Silence.
A special io thc News and Oou
rier dated 21st inst., says that our
Governor was talked to in a rough
manner by a man at the dinner
station at Kershaw. Tho Gover
nor was tired and reclining in the
car when this man spoke roughly
to him, and, of course, like a sen
sible man he paid no attention to
the bully. The News and Courier,
however, always ready to catch the
sloppy drippings that may be
thrown at Governor Tillman slur
ringly, headliness this special with
"Rudeness to That Good Man-A
Citizen of Kershaw Abuses Till
mau to his face." By its headlines
it approves the act of a drunken
bully, and seems to take pleasure
in proclaiming to the world that it
isihe proper thing for bullying
curs to abuse and viii if y anybody
connected with the present admin
istrat.ion. But when one of its
own followers is charged with rob
bing the p'eople there is no Haming
headlines proclaiming its disap
proval. There is a remark aide
stillness Let a State constable do
his duty and raid a dirty whiskey
den a howl goes up. Let a drunk
en loafer meet Governor Tillman
and show him disrespect and that
papei ciaps it hands with delight.
Let one of the former editors of
the News and Courier pilfer the
?chool funds, and a death-liko si
lence follows. It is all right to
violate the law, curse and abure
the State's chief magistrate, and
that paper will give its readers a
full and racy account of it. Then
when its own kith and kin are
shown to be guilty of theft and
forgery that paper becomes like
the little boy the calf run over.

for inventions and improvements in

labor, time, and expense. The political
change in the administration of the
rovernment does not affect the progress
jf the American inventor, wi o being
in the alert' and ready to perceive the
existing deficiencies, does not permit
the affairs of government to deter him
from quickly conceiving the remedy to
