WEDNESDAY, AUG. 19, 1896.
When the announcement was made
on last Tuesday by the attendiug phy
sician that "Alvin Hart could not live
twenty-four hours," many a prayer
went up to the Throne of Grace that
this might not be; and when on Wed
nesday morning it became known that
.the dread prediction was a reality, thai
he bad passed away during the night,
the news came upon our town as a
calamity not to be estimated not to be
measured or indicated by words alone.
"Our foremost citizen has fallen;'1
"the most useful member in all this
community;" "hewill be missed more
than any other man would have been
missed" was the universal acclaim.
Duing life men are often judged by
what they say, what they promise, and
what they are expected to do. After
death they are judged by t heir fellows
by what they have done. Measured by
thisstanlard our friend and brother
stood pre-eminent among us. As a
merchant and in his private business
.he was cautious, economical, exact, and
always conscientious, but in matters
of public conc.ern he was bold, urgent,
and vigilant not counting the cost to
himself but pressing on right on to
fruition. Tnis enthusiastic and con
tinuous interest in works for the pub
lic weal ls testified to in our very
midst by those mute tut not inglori
ous monuments, the Hotel Edgefield*
The Edgefield Opera House, The Bank
of Edgefield, and last and greatest, the
Edgefield Baptist church. In this last,
the Edgefield Baptist church, all Edge
field will see day after day as the days
go by a memorial of his patience, his
business tact and talent, his liberality,
his courage and his love for, and joy
in, doing good works. In these mat
ters be may have been ambitious to be
; first, to be foremost but if so, it never
appeared, for when success bad been
achieved in any of these or other en
terprises he invariably left the emolu
ments, if any, for others. He took noth
ing for himself, the joy in the achieving
:H>d the achievement, the GAUDAMEN
J K RTA MINIS, seemed to be enough for
H'm. li be was ambitious, it was au
ambition commendable and to be imi
tated, an ambition "to scatter plenty
o'er a smiling land, and read his his
tory in.a peoples' eyes."
.And yet, Alvin Hart's best traits
were not exhibiten in his public deeds
nut in his private relations with kin
dred and friends; to these he was ever
tender, loving and helpful and they
held ni in in their heart of hearts as its
1 rst and best treasure.
That be was a christian we may
know from an incident of his last ill
ness, A few hours before bis death
be called a friend to his bedside who
bowed his head to -bear these last
-words, almost inarticulate: "1 am
perfectly calm and rational. I know
that I m ust die, and Lam willing to go."
Here is hope, here is assurance that be
was ready to "cross the bar"-to make
- "Twilight, eveuing bell,
After that the dark;
And be no sad farewell
When I embark
For though beyoud our bourne of time
The billows bear me far;
1 hope to meet my pilot face to face,
When I have crossed the bar."

fast passing away. Dr. Clint Tomp

JIM HILL, as he was familiarly
called, is dead ; it is hard to 'real
ize that iie is gone and oh how he
will be missed by his neighbors,
for he was ever ready with hand
and purse to extend a favor to auy
charitable object and he was
a friend to every mau he thought
honest and deserving friendship.
JAMT?S RICHARDSON HILL was
about 62 years old-died at his
brothers, Dr. Walter Hill of Edge

Gassawiy near Richardsouville
where he was born and raised, and
both places he loved and cherish

was spent at the latter plac? clerk

appointed iu a love affair and nev

He was a member of the Methodist
church t.t vjras8away. Such men as
JAMES R. HILL are rare in this
world and the inscription on his

act and when his mortal remains
were committed to the dust we
felt that we had lost earth's dearest
treasure-a true and faithful
Farewell dear JIM-may the turf

To THE PUBLIC : We learn that
Mr. J. E. Strom made a statement
that he signed the announcement
of Mr. L. I). White for the Legisla
ture expecting him to withdraw
his name; that he intends making
some statement through this weeks
issue of an Edgefield paper be
ing the last week before tho elec
tion. From the fact that Mr. Yel
dell visited Mr. Strom on Saturday
last we infer that there must be
some combination to injure Mr.
White and knowing the people of
Edgefield love fair play and frown
upon unfair methods we place be
fore them the following certifi
Ido hereby certify that I pre
sented Mr. White's announcement
for tho legislature to Mr. Strom for
hi;; signature. He at first decliued
siguing, but when I started off, he
without persuadion on ray part,
called to me tn stop, saying "Mr.
White is my i.^ighbor and a good
man" and that li?; would sigu it
and vote for him.
W. P. Winn.
I hereby certify that I was pres
o t and heard the conversation be
tween Mr. Winn and Mr. Strom
and that Mr. Winn's statement as
above made is correct and true.

what I was Jed to expect, that is,
to show 'bat Mr. White's election
is desired by th-i reformers of thie
community with a view to accom
plish the defeat of the Hon. Wm.
H. Yelldell. I deny this and deem
it my duty to Mr. Yeldell and to
myself, and for the information of
the voters of the county, to explain
how my name became attached to
tho announcement. Two of my
neighbors came to my house and
asked me to sign it, which I refug
ed to do, stating that I could not
vote for Mr. White, and therefore
could not ask to run for the office
by signing his petition or announce
They then said to me that "Mr.
White" did not intend to make the
race now, and only desired to be
announced in this way with the
hope that it wouid help bim in his
race two years from now, and that
he would come out in a ?ajd de
clining to run" and that, "if I
would sigu it with that under
standing, one of the party said
that he would allow me to write
his entire ticket in the coming pri
mary," which proposition I accept
ted and signed it. I dislike to ap
pear in print, but a sense of duty
requires me t > make these state
ments of facts in order that justice
may be done.
