[WEDNESDAY, NOV. 14,1894.
Elections were held on Tuesday
in forty-one States and four Terri
Evans's majority over Pope was
something like twenty-five thous
Dr. Pope has announced his in
tention of contesting the election
in this State.
The annual conference of the
M. E. Church, South, will meet at
Laurens on Nov. 19th.
Senator Hill says every dog has
his day, but there wer? not enough
Democratic days to go round.
A bill has been'introduced in
the Georgia Legislature now in ses
sion, to give that State a dispensary
law patterned after our own.
Senator Hill, of New York, says
"Republicanism feeds on failures
and fattens on financial distress."
But Senator Hill spoke too late.
So great will be the Republican
majority in the next House of
Representatives that it is appre
hended that Tom Reed will move
that body to make it unanimous.
Just like Tom to do this.
An order was received at Wash
ington, Ga., a few days ago from a
Chicago firm for fifty bushels of
corn. It could not be filled, as the
people of that section only raise
corn for home consumption.
The Constitutional Convention
went through by something like
three thousand majority. The
votes are being tabulated to-day,
Tuesday, and the exact figures
cannot be given until next week.
Talmage has finally severed his
connection with his Brooklyn con
gregation, as he says he cannot ask
them to build another tabernacle
for bim. He may be fireproof in
the next world, *but certainly fire
follows him in this world.
It is significant that all of the
candidates for Governor and all
the candidates for Senator in this
State and Georgia are for the free
and unlimited coinage of silver at
the ratio of 16 to 1. None of them
own silver mines, but they all
know what honest money is.
Cotton posted men say that the
Texas crop this year will be two
and three-quarters or three million
bales. And as much of it is made
by German families who raise their
own provisions and do their own
work and don't have to buy fertil
izers, some Christmas money will
be left in the lone star State.
Capt. Wm. A. Courtenay, of New
berry, was in the city to-day, and
when asked about the political sit
uation was brief and to the point.
He said that he was out of th?
current of politics, but it seemed
to him that the Tillman-Irby
Evans combination was in absolute
control, that Butler from the first
never stood a ghost of a show that
Pope did not amount to a row of
pins, and that Charleston would
never be "in it" until she ceased to
do foolish things.-Charleston
In speaking of the annual con
test of the Calhoun Literary So
ciety, which took place while he
was there, Gov. Tillman spoke in
the highest terms of the efforts of
the young men participating.
Speaking of Mr. J. S. Garris, who
won the medal for oratory on his
effort, "Progress and Education,"
he said: "They hada youngman
there twenty-two years of age, a
raw young fellow out of the huck
leberry swamps of Colleton, who j
delivered an oration which aston
ished every one. It was the most
polished piece of oratory I have
ever listened to in this State. Pie
was a winner of his medal 'hands
down." The debaters' medal was
won by Mr. C. M. Mauldin, and
the declaimers by Mr. J. E. Leach,
who spoke 'The Polish Boy.' "
The answer to the question,
"Why the Republicans made such
sweeping victories in so many of
the States?" is to be found in the
simple fact that the National
Democratic party lied to the peo
ple. We promised tariff reform
and we gave them not even a half
a loaf. We promised free silver
and we took away even that which
they had. We promised better
times and we have given them
worse. We promised bread to the
hungry and clothes to the naked,
and we have given them stones and
rags. Let it be written
And it died !
Of course we do not mean ex
actly that the grand old Demo
cratic party is dead, eternally dead,
"but that she has an awful case of
jim-jams and may go off at any
Our November court is in session
and will probably last three weeks
or longer. Judge Benet presides
with grace and dignity. This be
ing his first appearance here as
Judge our people were naturally
anxious to see him, and we have
heard nothing but golden opinions
of his fairness and impartiality as
a presiding officers.
A very fair quality of cheese is
being made at Clemson College.
The editor of the Greenville News
partook of it and pronounced it
Senator Palmer, of Illinois, is
greatly disappointed at Mr. Cleve
land's silence in the recent cam
paign. "All parties in Illinois are
embarrassed by want of effective
leadership," he eaid on last Friday.
"Mr. Cleveland, who must be re
garded by the country as possess
ing many eminent qualities, has
failed his party in declining to
lead it in this effort to secure what
was accomplished by the last Con
gress. In the struggle to maintain
it Mr. Cleveland's bugle blast
would have been worth a great
many thousand men.
A jury of twelve men in George
town county, where the case was
tried, have awarded damages to
the State against the county of
Florence for the looting of the dis
pensary at Timmonsville during
the Darlington riot. The amount
awarded is $223.75, all that was
asked for by the State.
There is another case of like
character still pending. It is the
suit of the State against the county
of Florence to recover from the
county damages for the destruc
tion of the dispensary at Florence
city. This case was continued by
consent, owing to the absence of
some material witnesses.
When so many hitherto Demo
cratic States have gone over to the
Republicans our own State is to
be congratulated on a sweeping
victory for the party. We have not
only elected the full State ticket,
but every Congressman elected
from this State is a Democrat. In
this connection Allen W. Thur
mond, of Ohio, a sou of the "old
man eloquent" Allen G. Thurmond,
for so long our leader in the House
of Representatives, speaking of
South Carolina says: "The whole
country seems to have got the pot.
There is but one bright spot ap
parent-South Carolinastill stands
Gentleman may cry fraud ! fraud !
but there is no fraud, at least not
more than in past elections, elec
tions that stood the test of the
courts and public sentiment. There
are always frauds in elections, in
deed there is fraud eveiywhere and
in everything, more or less, ac
cording to the exigencies and op
portunities for its perpetration
even in higher places than grovell
The erv of fraud, all at once, a
simultaneous outburst in all the
opposition papars, snacks too
much of a su^pc-ed iiecessity for
such a cry on the part of some
body whose schemes have all play
ed them false; the emoluments,
the salary, the fame of it, the
good-fellowship of so many years
all are slipping away, going, going,
Ah! the sands in my bands,
How they creep through my fingers
* To the deep.

ORANGEBURG, NOV. 10.-Since
our worthy county treasurer was
assassinated two attempts at night
time have been mad6 to rob people
on the way home.
Several days ago a white man
was held up and shot at in Four
Holes Swamp, and now comes the
report that the Messrs. Felder, two
highly respected young men, were
forced in this same swamp to give
up ii ll their money at the point of
two double-barrel shotguns pointed
directly at their heads. As a mat
ter of fact they yave up everything
that they were in pessession of,
which was $50 in bills and cur
rency. The young men had pistols
with them, but the sudden com
mand from the thick swamp came :
"Halt, throw up your hands." As
they peered forward two glittering
guns were pointed directly at them.
They threw up their hands and the
brutal, cowardly assassins came
forward masked, and while one
kept his gnu cocked on them the
other rifled their pockets of the
contents, which was the amount
stated above. These young men
are poor, and had sold three bales
of cotton the day of the robbery.

Having obtained charter privi
leges to operate "THE PEOPLES
MUTUAL FIRE ASSOCIATION"
throughout the different counties
of the State of Georgia, and the
State being a very large one, con
taining 137 counties, have decided
to sell the remainder of my terri
tory at very low figures.
This plan of insurance has been
operated in this (Edgefield) county
and throughout the Stute of South
Carolina under the name of "The
Farmers' Mutual Fire Association."
There is no change in the plan of
insurance only a slight change in
the name. The price of counties
range from $50 to $100 each, owing
to the size of the county and the
number you buy. Now all I aBk
is that you find out from the treas
urer of your county association
how much insurance was written
up in this county and multiply
that by 50 cents per hundred (the
amount the agent collects), and I
am sure you will be convinced that
you cannot find a business that
will pay you near so well.
I can refer you to quite a number
of men now at work in Georgia if
you require it.
