MK. GAINES SAYS
"That to Hold Out the Terra
Would Not at all Accord With
His Ideas of Propriety,"
EDITOR ADVERTISER: AS there
seems to be some concerti as to
what I will do in reference to my
position as Senator, I submit the
following statement :
Greenwood county goes into
operation as to its local affairs to
day (June 4th), and though I have
not changed my residence, yet by
action of law, I become a citizen
of Greenwood county.
So far as the letter of law is con
cerned, I have the right to hold
out the term of four years as Sen
ator from Edgefield county, but to
do so would not at all accord with
my own ideas of propriety. The
'uily question I have deliberated is
as to when it will be best for me
to band in my resignation. As the
office was created for the benefit of
the people this question should be
decided solely with regard to their
In the campaign last summer
this argument was used against
me by my opponents, viz : That if
I should be elected to the Senate
I would have the legal right to
hold for four years, and that if
Greenwood county should be es
tablished, and I did not resign,
Edgefield would be represented by
an alien Senator. Or, that if I
should^ resign before the next regu
lar election the people would be
put to the expense and vexation of
holding a special election to fill my
place. So far as I now recall, I
answered these points in every
speech I made in the campaign,
stating that should I be elected,
and should Greenwood county be
established, I would neither hold
the term out nor throw the people
lof the county into a special elec
tion, but would resign so ss to
throw the election of my successor
into the regular campaign of 1898.
At that time, however, I neither
expected Greenwood county to be
put into operation as early as it
bas been, nor did I expect it to
have any representation in either
branch of the General Assembly
until after the next regular elec
When the bills to establish the
new counties came up in the Sen
ate at the last session it was de
cided that under the tarins of the
Constitution, the Legislature was
required to put new counties into
operation as early as practicable,
and also decided that while there
could be no change in representa
tion in the House of Representa
tives until the next regular elec
tion, each new e.ounty was entitled
to a Senator. At that time I felt
sure that a special election would
be necessary in Edgefield county
aside from my position.
Under these conditions I felt
that so far as I was personally con
cerned I should not of my own
motion hold the position of Sen
ator from Edgefield county longer.
In discussing tho matter with
prominent citizens of v/hat yet re- '
mains as Edgefield county, I found
them to oppose my resignirg be
fore the beginning of the next
campaign, and the following are
among the reasons urged :
1st. That the statements I made
on the stump as to when I would
resign in case of the establishment
of Greenwood county, are regarded
by many of my supporters as a
pledge aud compact which I should
not. disregard by forcing the people
to undergo the trouble and expense
of a special election, and espe
cially now, as this election would
be held for the purpose of filling
my place alone.
2nd. That the people are engross
ed with their business aud public
interest not actively directed to
public affairs, that in a special
election there would be no cam
paign, no public discussion of mo
mentous questions, nothing to
bring out the views of candidates,
nothing to arouse and crystalize
public sentiment, nothing to bring
out the vote of the people, ah\
hence no guarantee that the can
didate who might receive the ma
jority of the few votes cast in a
special election would be either the
choice of the mass of the people or
represent their views.
3rd. That in the campaign I
stated my views on public ques
tions and my election by a ma
jority of the votes cast in what is
now Edgefieli county, indicates
that the}* are approved by the ma
jority of the people of the county.
That on these views the people of
?the county entrusted me with the
seuator8hip, with the understand
ing that if Greenwood county
should be formed I would return
the trust to them at the beginning
of the campaign of 1898, so that
every candidate for my position
shall be required to go squarely
before the people, present their
convictions on vital issues and
give the whole people a fair oppor
tunity to name the man of their
That it is probable that the cam
paign of 1898 will involve ques
lions of far reaching and even vital
importance to the people, and if
so it will be of the utmost import
ance that the next General Assem
bly shall be as nearly all fresh
from the people as possible, that
the will of the people as expressed
in the election shall be raflected
in the action of the Legislature.
That such being the case I would
not be filling the measure of my
obligation to those who entrusted
me with the senatorship to thrust
it back on them, and force them to
the trouble and expense of a spe
cial election at a time when public
sentiment is unsettled on vital
public issuee and conditions un
favorable to bring the will of the
masses to bear in an election.
4th. That: ray being, by action
of law, thrown into Greenwood
county, neither changes my con
victions on public afiairs nor les
sens my interest in the welfare of
the mass of the people. That the
active part taken by me at the last
session of !;he Legislature, both in
originating, drafting and pushing
measures for the-special benefit of
Edgefield county, and discouraging
legislation against her interests is
sufficient proof of my concern for
the interests of the people of the
That there could be no question
as to my fairly representing the
interests of Edgefield county un
less some question should arise
involving conflict of interest be
tween Edgefield and Greenwood
counties, and about which there
would at the same time be room
for doubt as to my duty in the mat
ter. But that the act establishing
Greenwood county covered all de
tails of tho separation, and there
is no prospect of auy such ques
5th. That they believe this posi
tion to accord both with the inter
ests of the people of the county
and the wishes of those who sent
me to the Senate, and it shall be
endorsed by every aspirant for my
place who wants to go to the Sen
ate only a3 the choice of the ma
jority of tho whole people and who
does not want to take snap judg
ment on the people in a special
electiou and walk into the Senate
as it vere by default.
Now, Mr. Editor, those who
know anything about my private
business recognize that there will
be no gain to me to serve at the
next session of the Senate, and if
I were merely a politician, pei
sonai interest would suggest th?
it would be perhaps good poli*
for me to resign at once. Inde
if I had been merely a politici
I would have resigued and run
the Senate in Greenwood couti
I have been in no hurry to dec
my course of action, because there
is no occasion for hurry, and I
have desired to decide in accord
with the welfare of the people of
the couuty and my obligation to
those who elected me to the Senate
on the statements made by me in
For the reasons above stated I
have decided that duty demands
that I shall serve as Senator from
Edgefield couuty till the close of
the next session of the Legislature
when I shall resign so that my
successor may be chosen in the
regular elections of the campaign
of 1898. J. M. GAINES.

EDITOR ADVERTISER: I am re
minded of the words of a poet
which I memorized when quite a
child, and although they may not
be appropriate or applicable?^ the
cause which prompts the writing
of this lotter, I will use them for
wha1; they are worth :
"A raven once an acorn took,
From basin's tallest, stoutest tree,
And laid it near a limpid brook,
And lived another oak to see."
I had not seen a copy of the
Edgefield ADVERTISER in more
than six years till yesterday, when
your last issue, Mr, Editor, was
handed rae. The dear bid journal
looked quite familiar, and I scan
ed its pages with no small degree
of interest. My attention was
specially attracted to the short ar
ticle under the caption ''Who
Saved lt." The reading of this
article in which my name ls prom
inently mentioned elicits this ef
fort on my part, to explain and to
some extent correct the writer "E."
in what might become construed
in the wrong light and thus cause
a ruffle of discord in this day of
I was born in old Edgefield and
quite half of my past life has been
spent within her borders. For
three successive years, 1888,1889)
and 1890,1 taught school in the I
Big Creek section, at what is known
as "Shiloh Academy." During ray
residence there I joined the Trav
wick Chapel Alliance.
It was during the time in which
a great deal was being written and
said by many with regard to the
united efiorts of the County Alli
ance in a proposed project to es
tablish one or more co-operative
stores in Edgefield county. I con
ceived the idea that upon similar
principles as proposed for the es
tablishment of these imaginary
stores a County Alliance bank
might be established. I drafted a
resolution in accord with my ideas,
offered it for acceptance and adop
tion in my home alliance, which
was done. It was then that I was
authorized by the Traywick Alli
ance, under a resolution, to write
the action of said alliance, as fa
voring the establishment of a
farmers bank to that of a corpora
tive store, also requesting all sub
- . ' ? ?
I (/'.".? : .i ij.?t??? O?!QM. I. ?'i'L'
aud myself attended the call meet
ing at Fruit Hill as representatives
of Traywick Aliiance, several other
alliances were represented. Sen
ator Tillman, (then known as
Capt. Tillmau) attended and was
choser to preside over the delib
erations of the meeting. In that
meeting I offered the resolution as
adopted at Traywick, which was
received after some discussion and
adopted, with the recommendation
that the same he considered by the
next meeting of the County Alli
ance. I was present at the next
meeting of the County Alliance,
and as will be remembered by
every interested allianceman pres
ent, and as record will show, I
presented the same resolutions,
which called forth a heated dis
cussion, as many favored the pro
posed system of stores. I insisted
upon the adoption of tho resolu
tion with all my ability, outlining
in detail my feeble ideas as to the
advisability of such an enterprise.
It was ('apt. W. S. Allen who first
joined me in the discussion, then
Dr. W. H. Timmerraau, Hoo. W.
J. Talbert and Mr. A. E. Padgett,
possibly others, but the resolution
was adopted, unchanged from the
original wording at Traywick, ex
cept "twenty dollars per share';
was substituted for "len dollars
per share." A charter was applied
for and granted. The bank organ
ized and was at work in a short
It was you, Mr. Editor, thal

clothes and incipiency "a boy" and
mentioned Timmerman, Rains

fathers, aud you will remember c

the father of anything, and as thc
real father of the "boy" was nol
definitely known, that under ai
old law made and provided thal
every citizen of the county be call
ed upon to support tho child till il
was full grown.
Now, Mr. Editor, the foregoing
is a matter of record, and deeervet
to be made public. It was Tray
wick Allianeo instead of Big Creek
otherwise "E" was correct.
