That Summer Encampment.
The Capers Light Iufantry held
their regular annual election at
Parksville on Saturday last. The
following are the officers: Captain,
Jas. H. Tillman ; 1st Lieut., H. W.
Doboy; 2nd J. W. Johnson; 3rd
Jas. Reece; 1st Serg't, H. A.
Adams ; 2nd W. S. Middleton ; 3rd
Chas. Strom ; 4th J.J. Nixon ; 5th
P.S.Reynolds; Color Serg't, Jas.
Moultrie ; Quartermaster, W. A. D.
Blackwell; Ordnance Serg't M.
Bonham Moultrie; Chaplain, Rev.
G. W. Bussey; Surgeon, D. A. J.
Bell, Jr.; Judge Advocate, L. F.
Dorn ; 1st Corp'l, John Wash ; 2nd
Will Mallett; 3rd J. P. Nixon.
This command is in a most flour
ishing condition; having, it is
said, the largest membership of any
company in the State. Fifty monj
uniforms were ordered in prepara
tion for encampment at Centre
Spring this summer beginning 14th
of Aug. and closing on the 17th.
The company will bring with them
their brass band of fourteen pieces
to enliven things. The other com
mands of the county are contem
plating xhe same step and will
probably join the Capers Light Iu
fantry at the springs. Edgefield
county has perhaps tho best militia
of any county in the State, and by
all means let them come together
in a yearly encampment for their
mutual improvement. It would be
time well spent. The people of
our town should offer special in
ducements to have them come.
A Mountain Creek Boy.
A Washington dispatch says:
"Capt. J. M. Berry has returned
from Great Britain and the conti
nent, having visited Liverpool,
in the interest of direct trade from
Augusta, Ga. Captain Berry has
appointed ?eliable agentn in those
places for the sale of his flour mill
product. Shipments will be made
direct from Port Royal, Savannah
and Charleston." Capt. J. M. Ber
ry, or Jilefc Berry as he is known
in Edgefield, was born and reared
on Mountain Creek in this county.
The poor boy has become a mer
The Greenville correspondent of
the News and Courier says in that
paper, June 12th : "The leading
topic of interest to our people for
the last week or so is a revival of
the proposition to construct a new
railroad through Edgefield county
looking to Charleston and Port
Royal for its' destination on the
coast, and the Northwest via Green
ville in the interior. It is no vio
lation of confidence to state that
a representative of a strong com
pany has recently passed along this
route, with what instructions is
not known, but he was evidently
much pleased. Two lines have
already been surveyed from Green
wood, one to Edgefield C. H. and
the other to Johnston via Trenton,
and a proposition has been mae'e
by a construction co: pany to
grade either of these lines for a to
tal of $29,000. This proposition
was made when times were flush.
It can be done riow, it is believed,
at a cost of $20,000. Very little
more is to be done than to shape
the roadbed, as it is a ridge all the
way. The route contemplated
north of Greenwood is by Ware's
Shoal's, on Saluda River, near
Cokesbury, which is one of the
finest water powers in the country,
and only awaits access to be de
veloped into use. The construc
tion of this road would open a fine
section of country and give the
shortest possible route from the
mountains to the seaboard.
Edgefield at thc Citadel.
Two Edgefield boys graduated at
the recent commencement of the
Charleston Citadel. Cadet E. L.
Ready, son of the late Senator W.
J. Ready, and Cadet J ames E. Peu
rifoy, son of D. B. Peurifoy of Sa
luda late member of the House
from Edgefield. The News and
Courier refers to their essays in
the following compli entary terms
"After another intermission filled
with music Cadet E. L. Ready was
introduced as the second orator of
the evening. His Siioject w .s
"Man" He drew a picture of the
uncertainty of life, the limited
range of knowledge and the frail
ty of all things human. The de
scriptions of men, their acquire
i lents and their knowledge, were
delivered with spirit. The speak
er displayed an eloquent command
of language..and . great earnestness
In the moral which he desired to
point. He closed his address with
a fervid appeal to his hearers to
liveaud strive for the right, work
ing faithfully and steadfastly to
achieve their highest ideals.
* * * * ? * *
Cadet Jas. E. Peurifoy was next
introduced as the valedictorian of
the class of 1894. His address
was a most excellent and appro
priate one. After bidding farewell
to the members of the faculty and
to his fello v studen's he turned
and spoke in a feeling manner to
the audience. He referred to tho
relations between the students and
the citizens of Charleston. They
were, he said, bound together by
the closest ties of friendship. No
student of the Citadel Academy,
no matter what distance rr time
separated him from Charleston,
could ever forget the warm-hearted
hospitality, the never-failing kind
ness and courtesy and the sincere
and devoted friendship and affec
tion with which Charleston people
had met and treated him. He re
ferred eloquently to the treatment
of the students by the citizens and
the city after the burning of thc
institution two years ago, and that
the kindness then extended the
cadets had been characteristic of
the people and their treatment of
the Citadel boys. The address was
an admirable one and was well re
ceived by the audience."

last Sunday in a public address
that one of the sublimest senten

consists of niue words of one

was light." If the preacher had
given the exact translation--the

the sentence would have been

not forgotten the abuse received at

most of the candidates anticipate

Children's Day at Barr's Chapel.
The pastor failed to come, and
bring the speakers, and the Sun
day school failed to get the pro
grams and everything looked like
it was at sea. But Miss Agnes
Morgan who teaches school there
had prepared the children with
pieces of her own selection, and I
must say that tho recitations were
not only good, but showed the
good judgment of the teacher in
all being appropriate to the occa
sion. The children had only three
days time in which to memorize
and practice. They did remarka
bly well. We also had addresses
from young J. P. Mealing, son of
Rev. John Mealing, and from S.A.
Branson, the Superintendent of
the Brunson Sunday school ; and
if we did not have a preacher and
those who were to address the
school for the da}', we had a nice
time and one that any one could
have enjoyed. You know it is very
trying to bo called upon to get up
without any notice and make au
address, but the speakers showed
that they were not only willing,
but able to do full justice to the

Thc Tillnian-Butlcr Contest.
The development of tho State
campaign, which opens at Rock
Hill Monday with preliminary
sparring between the two Senatorial
candidates, Governor Tillman
and Senator Butler, may be justly
anticipated with eager interst and
curiosity. Tho interest is intensi
fied by the general impression that
the two men aro not unevenly
matched. It must be said that in
the State campaigns heretofore
conducted according to tho Till
man idea the farmer-statesman
did not mistake his peculiar field
of ability, and that he has out
classed those who have opposed
him with his chosen weapons aud
mode of warfare on the hustings,
in former contests.
The Edgefield ploughboy, who
was unknown to fame until he wras
near on to forty, sprung into the
arena which he had dictated, like
the fully-panoplied warrior from
the brain of Jove. His prepara
tion for the conflct though re
stricted was for that reason of a
concentrated and more powerful
character. With a little change
of phraseology the thought of
Tennyson in the lines
"Here about the fields he wandered.
Nourishing a youth sublimej
With the fairy tales of science
And the long results of time."
might appropriately be applied to
There was the instinct of a
socio-political wrong and his
savage fancy brooded over it for
want of other food and a wider
field of experience and latitude for
the expendtture of his sullen
energy until the wrong was exag
ageratedinto au abuse of intoler
ble proportions-just such an ex
eggeratioii as was necessary to ex
cite and ignite the kindred instnet
in tho popular bosom and to in
lame the State "with his idea.
These are the elements which con
stitute popular revolution, and it
is not strange that the popular
champion, swept all opposition be
fore hinj. The impediment of
speech disappeared before thc
buming^ necessity for utterance
and the untutored tyro became at
once the iccomplishcd orator
s four years ago and the
eyer than to remedy them. A four
years' administration should fur
nish some handle for praise or
blamo which Governor Tillmau's
previous uneventful life failed to
afford his opponents originally.
Senator Butler opposes to bis
antagonist the trained and oft ap
proved characteristics of the ex
perienced athlete as against the
rustic wrestler whose native vigor
and hardiness has been somewhat
improved in the school of affairs.
Both candidates are sprung
from the same Edgefield soil.
Neighbors, with an intimate
knowledge of each other's personal
and public foibles, no doubt, and
both versed in the public qaestions j
of the day, State and national,
they are prepared to meet* and
combat each other, whether on
grounds of personal merit or of
public measure. "With everything
to incite them to put forth, each
man, his best efforts, the public
expectation that the campaign
about to open will be fraught with
unusual interest would not seem
to be unwarranted. ~
