Democratic State Ticket!
JOHN GARY EVANS,
For Lieut. Governor :
W. H. TIMMERMAN,
The income tax will soon be on
It is reported that Texas has the
best prospect for a good cotton crop
that it has had in ten years.
That light in the West, is a Jack
O'Lantern. We hope Gov. Tillman
will not fix his hopes on such moon
Another big strike is on in Mas
sachusetts. Eleven thousand cot
ton operatives went out on Monday
of this week.
Out of 1,800 votes cast on Satur
day in Marion county for governor.
Ellerbe received 1,795 of them.
This was his home county.
President Cleveland will sign
the tariff bill, and Speaker Crisp
says Congress will adjourn within
twenty-four hours thereafter.
Au extra session of the Supreme
Court will probably be called at
an early day to pass upon the con
stitutionality of the dispensary
law under the act of 1893.
The House of Representatives
has accepted the Senate Tariff bill,
and so we have Tariff reform, such
as it is. Camphor and borax will
go lower, and sugar, coal, iron, etc.,
Capt. Wm. E. Earle, a prominent
lawyer and politician, formerly of
Greenville, but since 1878 a resi
dent of the city of Washington, D.
C., died on the 13th instant, after
a short illness in Portland, Maine.
It is reported that the farmers of
Indiana, for the first time in the
State, are feeding wheat to their
hogs and selling their corn. Wheat
is bringing 43 cents a bushel at the
railroad station, while corn can be
sold for 45 cents a bushel.
Gen. Farley has written a two
column card withdrawing from the
race for Congress in the Spartan
burg district. Gen. Farley can say
nothing more gracefully than most
" writers, and that is exactly what
he has done in the card referred
Mrs. Debs says of her husband,
the ex-strike agitator, that "he
doesn't go to any church at all.
He's an infidel. We are a family
of infidels, every one of us. Col.
Robert Ingersoll, whom we all
know and admire, ?B our only
The Populist forces are weaken
ing everywhere. The reasons are
not far to seek. This party has no
monopoly of issues that are not
equally as available to the other
two parties, and it has no leader of
force and character. Tom Watson,
of Georgia, who is the ablest of
the lot is so lacking in other essen
tials that he has lest his grip even
in his own State. Populism, like
the greenback craze of a few years
ago, has its days numbered
We see no reason why John Gary
Evans shouldn't make a good Gov
ernor. He has sense enough, and
we don't believe he'll play any
"fantastic tricks before high
heaven," although some of his
enemies do accuse him of being a
high stepper. Our advice to John
Gary is to go slow. He will be
judged more by what he does and
the way he does it than any Gov
ernor of this State within the
memory of maD. There will be no
glamour about his administration
as there was about that of Tillman.
The ardor of pursuit is over, and
Reformers even will judge matters
and events as cold, substantial
The Manufacturers' Record pub
lishes letters from two hundred
Southern bankers, scattered all the
way from Maryland to Texas, in
regard to the business conditions
and crop prospects in the South.
These letters report an unusually
satisfactory outlook for agricul
tural and general business inter
ests. The decline in the price of
cotton two or threoyears ago fo:oed
Southern farmers who could not
continue to borrow money in ad
vance on their crops as freely as
before, to pay more attention to
the raising of their own food sup
plies. The result has been a steady
decrease in the indebtedness of
Southern farmers. Added to these
favorable conditions, they have the
prospect of the largest aggregate
crops, taking grain, cotton, fruitB,
and all else into consideration,
ever produced in the South,
A World's Fair is on the tapis
for Atlanta next year and that city
has obtained an appropriation of
$200,000 from Congress for that
A grand nephew of the bloody
Robespieire has been discovered in
Paris in the person of Maximillian
de Robespierre, a worthy, law
abiding tile manufacturer.
The corn crop of sections of the
Northwest is almost a total failure,
especially in Kansas, and our ad
vice to Edgefield farmers is to
husband their corn crops with
great care. This cereal is already
worth a dollar per bushel in this
market and may go higher. It is
a source of great congratulation
that the corn crop in this county
is so excellent, and so extended an
SOME GOOD ADVICE.
The Greenville News advises all
the conservatives to lay aside their
differences and vote in the pri
mary next Tuesday for the State
ticket as selected by the reformers,
in the following language :
The conservatives and all other
citizens have the right to deter
mine foz themselves whether they
will vote in the general primaries
on the 28th and thereby bind them
selves to vote for the nominees of
that election or whether they will
hold out of the primary and vote
as they like at the general election
Our advice to all white men is
to vote at the primaries. There is
not a possibility of defeating the
so-called democratic nominees in
November. We had better do what
we can to make those nominees as
good as possiblo. If the conser
vatives will vote solidly they may
be able to make the next legisla
ture an improvement over the

How to Act.
Secretary Tompkins is sending
out the following circular letter to
all constables appointed in vari
ous parts of the State :
INSTRUCTIONS TO STATE CONSTA
STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA
Columbia, S. C.
In resuming operations under
the dispensary law of 1893, con
stables, while exercising all the
powers and duties conferred by
that act, will be careful to avoid
any unnecessary friction or get in
to any brawls. They will seize all
contraband liquors and make ar
rests under evidence sufficient to
convict, the same as heretofore.
When necessary, they will apply
to the sheriff of the county for as
sistance in making arrests or
searches. When these are not
convenient they may apply to
mayors and intendants of towns
for search warrants and for the aid
of the police. Any refusal on the
part of the mayors or intendants
and police to co-operate must be
reported promptly to the Governor.
Constables will not search express
cars without specific instructions.
But if they see any contraband li
quor in one they can order it to be
detained and carried to the local
express office for examination.
Freight depots may be entered and
searched whenever open for busi
ness without a warrant: and
freight cars which are being un
loaded may also be searched. In
opening suspicious packages care
must be exercised not to injure the
All saloons and other open
places of business where contra
band liquor is supposed to be sold,
may be searched without a war
rant. Constables will wear their
badges at all times.
B. R. TILLMAN,
He is Thankful That He Will
Soon Leave Columbia.
COLUMBIA, S. C., Aug. 20.-By
request Gov. Tillman delivered to
night an address on Main street
to about three hundred people,
about half of whom were re
formers. He was well received,
though at times he received many
jeers. He *poke of the city of Col
umbia m a caustic way and ridi
culed its management as being
under the domination of men who
were antagonistic to the whole of
the rest of the State. He said ho
proposes to critscise President
Cleveland as often as he violates
the Democratic platform which he
had spit upon. That Cleveland
betrayed his party and had baulked
thc Democratic senators and re
presentatives :.n Congress in their
desire to carry out party pledges.
That Cleveland was in league
with the powers of the northeastern
section of the country who were
intent upon keeping the volume of
currency as small as possible That
he thanked God that he would
lenve Columbia in a few months,
but that his place would be filled
by a man who wonld keep the peo
ple down as he had tried to do.

A LIFE POLICY IN THE
OF PORTLAND, MAINE,
ls T/JEBEST iMESTflE/tTA M AN CANUAKE!
Tue Union Mutual is the only company that is
sues policies giving the benefit of the Non-Forfeit
ure Law, and specifying in definite terms by its
Policy contract that there can be no forfeiture of
insurance, by non-payment of premium, after three
years' premiums have been paid, until the value pro
vided for is exhausted in Extended Insurance.
The Union Mutual
Has been in business over Forty Years, during
which time it has paid to its policy-holders over
Twenty-six Million Dollars.
It Pays Its Losses Upon Receipt of Satisfac
tory Proofs, Without Delay or Discount?
There can be no more certain provision for your
family than your policy in The Union Mutual.
The Union Mutual Policies
Are the most liberal now offered to the public ; they
are incontestable after one year from date of issue
and free from limitations as to Residence, Travel,
Suicide, or Occupation-Military and Naval Service
in times of war excepted. After the payment of three
full years'premiums in cash they are protected'by
the popular Maine Non-Forfeiture Law, the provi
sions of which can apply only to policies written by
this company. ?
The Union Mutual
Is a purely mutual company; its resources belong
to the policy-holders and are utilized in giving to
them a maximum of benefits consistent with absolute
security, there being no stockholders to absorb large
profits. Each policy is stock in the company. Its
officers and agents are paid their salaries and com
missions, and they BABN THEM, 'I hese are included
in the current expenses. Every dollar of the profit
goes to the POLICY HOL DEBS ONLY.
The Union Mutual
Issues a policy which is as safe as Government
Bonds, and far more profitable.
It is not subject to taxes.
It isjnot subject to administration.
It is your financial safeguard.
It keeps a man's NAME GOOD even beyond the grave.
It goes where you wish it togo; is outside of all
controversy, will or no will.
It requires none of your time.
It requires none of your attention.
It causes no care or worry.
It is absolutely YOUBB. No doubt about TITLE.
It is looking out for "number one."
It is "nailing down" something; "salting away"
something for YOU and YUCKS beyond the emergencies
and risks of ordinary business.
It ASSURES the success of that for which you are
striving. It makes your future a certainty.
It is the only property you can buy by simply loan
ing a per cent, of its value yearly for such number of
years as you may elect.
It gives a constant satisfaction that no other prop
erty can produce for you.
It is the only property that will surely cling to you
through all financial storms.
It is your LIFE-BOAT which may prove in later life
a SHIP Of PBOSPEBITY.
In fact, as said above. A LIFE POLICY IN
The Union Mutual,
OF PORTLAND, MAINE,
Is the Best Investment a Man Can Make!
The undersigned, General Manager for South
Carolina, respectfully, and with the utmost con
fidence in this company, (calls the attention of
the people of Edgefield, and of the State, to
the solid merits of THE UNION MUTUAL. And
those wishing Insurance, or any information re
lating thereto, will have their wants cheerfully
