A MUTUAL FRIEND
Slakes a Statement in the Matter
of the Whitc-WillUvms
Editor Edgef?eld Advertiser:
Much to ra}' regret I fiud il nec
essary for me to say t-omething to
the public through your paper in
behalf of W. H. Yeldell, so fur
as he is supposed to be concprned,
or in any way interested in the
late L. D. and J. V. White tragedy.
Now, Mr. Editor, I want lo say
that h. D. White was ono of the
v* ry best friends I had, and I loved
him as a brother. I was raised
near him and have always known
him to be one among the beet men
of our rotinty, .ana besides our
persona! friendship, be married a
first cousin of mine, Vudie Cheat
bam, daughter, of John T. Cbeat
hara, a cousin whom I always
loved as a sister and one of the
best women in our county.
As everybody knows Luke, as
I always called him, ran for the
Legislature in 1896. As soon as I
saw his-name in the papers asa
candidat?! I wrote him and begged
him no; to run, saying that his
chances for election were slim, and
I thought too mujh of him to have
him run and be defeated, and used
evt-ry means possible to have him
withdraw from tho race, but all to
I saw Luke at EdgefieJd C. H.,
after writing him and he thanked
me very kindly for the interest I
had taken in him regarding his
election, and said he thought of
acting upon ray advice. But that
his conservative and reform
friends had advised him not to
withdraw from ihe race, that they
were satisfied of his election and
they did not think his running
would interfere with the election
of Yeldell ; and also said that he
did not believe he would get any
of Yeldell'6 votes, even if he was
not in the ra.ee. Then it was that
I foresaw the sad, sad thing that
has happened and begged him not
to run on that account. I knew
Williams and I knew Luke and I
dreaded the end. But he did not
seem to think there would be any
irouble along that line and per
sisted in running, and the world
knows tho end.
Now, in behalf of Leon Wil
liams, I have known him f- r a
long limo. While I havp never
been intimately associated with
him, yet I have always kno vii him
to 1 ?ti a perfect gentleman. Have
had some bus?uees dealings with
bim and found him such.
I come now to my old friend und
neighbor, aud one of our best rep
resentatives, Mr. Yeldell. Being
a close friend to all parties, anda
relative of L. D. White by mar
riage, naturally I was interested
in the election, and a.t Mountain
Creek church at a political meeting
I had a talk with Mr. Yeldell
about tho race and he expressed
himself this way: That while he
believed t L. D. White ' would get
some ot bis voles in the county,yet
he did not believe that he (White)
thought, il w mid interfere with his
(Yeldell's) election at all, and
that he and White had talked the
matter over and the very nesr of
feeling existed between them. Mr,
Yeldell did some surveying for me
^hxmt two months ago and he and.
. .stains, but
auuwmg ?ir. Veldell asl do, and
having talked with him as I have
already stated, and having talked
with some of Mr. White's most
intimate friends and relatives, I
feel honor bound to say in behalf
of Mr. Yeldell and in behalf of my
cousin, Mrs. L. D. White, that Mr
Yeldell is as clear of 'taking any
action in this affair, other than
what he thought, was for the best
for all parties, as an angel in
heaven, and further, I am satisfied
that he entertained tho very best
of feeling f.?r Mr. White.
