Even the negroes of Edgefield Coun
ty, the majority of them, are not in
sympathy with Dargan. They say
that he, Dargan, wants an ollice. Capt
Stan Ryan says that he has heard a
number of them say that "Dargan
ought not to be allowed to stir up strife
between the whites and blacks when
we are getting on so well."
The Newberry Observer says: "We
liave had no sympathy whatever with
the ideas recently expressed oil the
hustings of Col. John J. Dargan, of
Sumter, which it seemed to us, hada
tendency to inspire the negroes with
the hope that there is a possibility of
social equality. Therefore, we bave
no comments lo make on his treatment
at Ed ge li eld."
Altd so does the Lexington Dispatch :
"The silencing of (Jul. Dargan was not
a suppression of free speech within
the meaning of the Constitution, out
only the prevention of an incendiary
from hurling his burning brand
among Mitlam mable material; it was
but an emphatic and effective protea
against an effort tend?i g toward a
conflict bot ween the races; it was but
the strong arin of the law stretched
forth to prevent riot, and the prompt
action of the Sheriff and his advisers
will receive the commendation of ev
ery thoughtful man in the State irre
spective of race or party affiliation."
The Southern Cultivator says:
"Sweet potatoes may be set out during
the entire month of July, tlie latest
planted slips making the smoothest
and best keeping potatoes. Even the
first of August, if the season is suita
ble and the varietv, the quick matur
ing kind, like the St. Domingo, the po
tatoes will mature before frost. Vines
can also be cut from the earlier plant
ed slips which are beginning to run?
and when planted in short lengths,
one eye below and or e above ground,
root very quickly."

S??cT?ri--Ouzts Rises to a Ques
MR. EDITOR: I beg a little more
space to say a few words in reply
to Mr. Bacon, of the Chronic?*?, 5lr.
Bacon usjs s mie pretty strong lan
guage denouncing those who might
have acted so indecently in or near
his office in tho presence of his
nieces, but none too strong. He
basjust cause for complaint and to
denounce in the strongest language
such conduct us he reports was
perpetrated on that occasion, as
every good citizen and Christian
gentleman should. There is no man
deprecates the occurrence more
than I do, and that was the very
thing that prompted the commit
tee that waited upon Col. Dargan,
at the Chronicle office early in the
morning. They were trying to
avoid such and perhaps other
things which might have occurred
of a more serious nature, if possi
ble. There was no indecent lan
guage used upon that occasion by
either one of the committeemen.
There was nothing unpleasant du
ring the interview, nothing said or
done as far as I could hear or see
but might have been said with
propriety in any gentleman's par
lor and in the presence ot the
most refined ladies-nothing at all
objectionable, which each of the
committee will substantiate.
Mr. Bacon should have endeav
ored to ascertain the facts before
proceeding lo pour out his venom
on innocent heads. He speaks of
the committee as being a lawless
mob of Tilmanites, invading his
sanctuary, acting ungentlemanly
in every particular, and holding
them responsible for everything
that was done during the day.
That is, in my opinion, exactly
what, is 'he matter with Mr. Ba
con. He has let his prejudices
run so far on what he calls "Till
manism" until he has become a
rebellious maniac, doing every
thing possible to overthrow the
State government. Every mean
thing done is doue under the in
fluence of Tillmanism, le would
have you believe. I believe in do
ing the right thing to all men al
all times, regardless of politics.
The people of this county know
me too well to believe any of the
vile epithets which he seeks to
place upon me.
He say fi, speaking of the com
mittee, that anything we could
give would not appease bis venom,
but would contaminate his soul,
which has already boen de
monstrated, is that the spirit
which should animate the breast
of a Christian gentleman? If Mr.
Bacon, ns I have above mentioned,
really desired to have done ?be
right thing and done justice and
give fair dealing wi th every one, he
would not have gone off in such a.
The truth of this whole matter
is, that Mr. Bacon himself is more
to blame than any citizen of this
grand old county. In the first
place, it was through bis utter
ances in his paper about Col. Dar
should contain a high p
insure the largest yield an
of the soil.
Write for our " Farmers' Guidi
is brim full of useful information foi
will make and save you money. A
gan, when ht? saw that he was
to speak at Edgefield, that gave
h'm encouragement to come here,
for instance, he spoke of him as
"The bravest man in the State."
"a man that straight-out Democrats
could safely follow," ua represen
tative of the true blue Democra
cy." But alas, he invited every
body to come to hear the patriot
and" then deserts bb brave andi
cherished friend at such an i nop-j
portune time! He should have
been there aiding and assis1 ing in
preserving the peace and good or
der of the town and preserving the
body of his beloved friend from
bodily harm, protecting and de
fending h'.s nieces from insults
and indecencies, and if unable to
do this, he should have informed
tho officials and the citizens of the
town who would have gladly as
sisted him. That is the way a true
and brave gentleman would have
acted instead of going two miles
away as he himself says to see'an
old wrecked engine. A pitiful ex
cuse to offer. You can't fool
Edgefield people; they know full
well that you deserted your of
fice and friend.
Mr. Bacon, you ought to have
postponed going to se- the old
wrecked engine and have been
looking after matters which might
have led to the wrecking of our
grand old county anil State, turn
ing it over into the hands of scala
wags and negroes-for which the
people would in some measure
hold you responsible. This is the
type of the man that attempts with
the stroke of his pen to brand as
outlaws six reputable, law-abiding
citizens, destroying, if possibh
the good name they bear in the
county which took a life time to
hui i d up.
However I feel sorry for Mr.
cou; b^ should be pitied to some
extent rather than censured for
his past conduct, poor fellow! Iiis
mind is becoming so clouded he
only sees dimly theough his glass
es and can't see any into the fu
CODICAL No. 1.
In conclusion will sa}', that this
reply is not written in that ma
licious spirit as was Mr. Bacon's
unwarranted attr.ck which elicited
the reply. I would still try to ex
hibit that magnanimous spirit of
right and justice which no one
knows better than himself is one
of my chief characteristics. I will
not cloBe the doors to all the ave
nues, as did Mr. Bacon, when he
said that "anything we could give
would not only contaminate his
hands but his soul," whieh may
lead to a better state of feeling be
tween us and also a reconciliation
of our "vast" connection and
friends, of which he speaks in so
bold and fearless a manner, invi
ting as it were their ill will to
wards him unnecessarily.
Pi or fellow, as I have already
said tia is more to be pittied than
censure?',. His prejudices have
dethroned him of his reason. His
mind is beclouded. He has sui
cided his interest. Nothing is now
left but the little frai!: sinful body
which he carries and i would not
be surprised to bear thaf- he had
taken ;hat by his own haut!?.

Card From I>. Ii. Durisoc, Esq.
MR. EDITOR: I have read Sher
iff Ouzts' card, published above,
and I h< arti ly eudorse the same.
It is a sufficient refutation of Jim
Bacon's slanderous villification of
our committee, but as the follow
ing paragraphs, from an article I
had also prepared in reply, are
pertinent to the matter I will
thank you to allow them space in
For three score years and
longer Jim Bacon and myself have
sojourned down the path of life
together-from our happy school
boy days, all along the ups and
down of life, to ripe old age-but
always, as I have ever thought and
felt, with our boyhood friendship
unbroken! And under these cir
cumstances. Mr. Editor, it would
hardly have been possible for Jim
Bacon to have so provoked me as
to cause me to make an attack
on him so unwarranted aud un
kind, and so totally void of truth,
as the vindictive editorial in the
last issue of Iiis paper in reference
to the conduct of the committee
appointed to wait on Col. Dargan
whilst in his office.
* * *
The idea of Sheriff Bill Ouzts
and Capt. Bill Stevens and E. R.
Steadman and Pick Holloway and
Elbert Ryan and myself, inva
ding his private office and acting
ungentlemanly ! Bah ! A far-fetch
ed fallacy and a malignant whim !
A spiteful after-thought! And no
one knows better than Jim Bacon
himself that no member of that
committee had the faintest thought
of offending him or any member
of his family. Nor did they do it,
by word, deed or act, directly or

As to thp ugly conduct of tho half
dozen young meu, (surrounded as
they were by some thirty-five or
forty lookers on) in jeering, abus
ing and cursing Col. Dargan, we
have no apologies to offer; but re
gret the occurrence, inasmuch as
some young ladies unfortunately
overheard some of the rough lan
guage bef-towed on the doughty Ool
nel. But tho committee were in
no way responsible for any ill
treatment that Dargan received,
as even bo by knows, and ho who
says aught to the contrary, utter?
a willful falsehood. Jim Bacon,
in bringing his friend Dargan
here, is as much if not more, re
sponsible for the day's disturbance
than any one else.
* * *
But enough. Jim Bacon's friend
Dargan-the fellow who says "I
for ot.e hrtve gone to I he nigger
and glory in it," and "I lavor plac
ing negroes on each county ticket,"
and wants negro wom<->n to vote
was not pt-rmitted to disseminate
his poisonous doctrines in Edge
IHd, and departed hence, without
bodily injury. The boys-"the
howling devils" as Jim Bacon calle
them-had a bit of fun, and went
home happy. And therefore "All's
well, that ends well."
