be true that few of Edgefield's pa

been in the habit of meeting every h
emergency, overcoming every ob- P

Though his resignation might en- ?

confident a vast majority of our f

SENATOR HARRIS DEAD.
United States Senator John G.
Harris, of Tennessee, died at
"Senator Harris was last in the
senate chamber about ten days ago,
but was unable to stay for any
length of time, and had to be taken
home in a carriage. During the
past six months the senator had
been unable to attend to his du
ties only at intervals, having been
away from the city several times
endeavoring to recuperate.
Probably no man in public life
had been identified with more of
the history of *this country than
had Senator Harris. He had al
most completed his 79th year, hav
ing been born in February, 1818
and first became a member of con
greas in 1849. His congressional
career thus began earlier than that
of any member of either house,
antedating Senators Morrill and
Sherman by seven years, and Hon
Galusha A. Grow, now a member
of the house from Pennsylvania,
by one year.

HOW TO BE ELECTED.
Our sometimes level headed
contemporary, the Abbeville Press
and Banner, (and we are all level
headed at times) has the follow
ing to say of the last and the pres
ent Senatorial campaign :
"We have no sort of doubt that
John Gary Evans lost his election
because he submitted to personal
abuse and iusult. It is fair to
presume that he did ao, as he sup
posed, in obedience to a public
sentiment. In this he was mis
taken. If he had resented the
insults offered him at Abbeville
the election returns would have
been quite different-in this coun
ty at least. This added to the
fact, that Earle refused to take
that sort of talk changed the pop
ular vote. If Evans had defend
ed himself as Earle did,.he would
have been overwhelmingly elected
on the first ballot That is our
opinion, based on the evident re
sult of the canvass at Abbeville.
At present there is no sort of
doubt that McLaurin would lead
all the other candidates-even if
he could not poll a majority over
But if he proposes to take in
sults on every stump in the State
he will not be elected.
Tne Executive Committees at
the different places of speaking
should demand the observance of
the amenities, and failing to do
so, the insulted candidate should
hit somebody's nose, or quit the

To the President of the Senate and
Speaker of the House Represen

In the creation of Greenwood
county it was found necessary to
further mangle old Edgefield for
that purpose ; and by so doing that
portion that was required, therein
lived and had tneir residences,
our then Senator J. M. Gaines, and
Representative YV. H. Ye!Idell.

THE CAMPAIGN OPENS HOT.
ONLY TWO CANDIDATES AP
PEAR, BUT THERE
Irby Grows Personal and He
and McLanrln Nearly
Come to Blows.
SUMTER, S. C., July 5, 1897.
The first m jeting of the campaign
for the democratic nomination for
United States senator to fill the
place now occupied by J. L. Mc
laurin hy Appointment from Gov.
Ellerbe, was held here to-day and
proved sensational in the extreme.
It* opened, quietly in the opera
house, which was only comfortably
County Chairman Pur ly intro
duced Senator McLaurin as the
first speaker. The senator's address
was conservative. He paid tribute
to the memory of Senator Earle
and gave an account of his own
political stowardship. Mr. Mclau
rin was warmly received and sat
down with the pleasing assurance
of having made a good impression.
Then the storm broke. Ex-United
Senator John L. M. Irby was in
troduced, and for three-quarters of
an hour was enacted as exciting
scenes as perhaps have ever been
witnessed at a campaign meeting
in this or any other State. Things
looked serious time and again. At
one time Irby and McLaurin were
only prevented from clinohing by
interference of those on the stage,
irby in bis speech applied the se
verest language tc McLaurin and
be came to the front. When Irby
rose the cheers for McLauriu were
deafening. He made an opening
sally, McLaurin made an apt re
mark aside and the cheering was
such that ?rby, despite repeated
efforts, could not go on. Then
whet" Chairman Purdy quieted tho
crowd, he ?tarted out again by
chargiug tte crowd with trying to
bowl bim down. He said he knew
that it was all fixed in this hot-bed
of Haskell ism and conservatism.
Pretty soon he said he did not care
how many of these city henchmen
tried to prevent him from speak
ing. Chairman Purdy advanced
then and said that it was their de
sire to give Irby a respectful hear
ing, and he asked that he not re
peat that insulting language. If
he could not be respectful they did
not waut to hear.him, The com
mittee was not responsible for the
outbursts cf feeling. Irby replied
that they had insulted him first.

Irby went on then and charac

fou can't insult me in that way." 8
The two men faced each other. ,
irby repeated what he had said
md added : "I say further that if

At this juncture Editor Appelt
ushed up to Irby and told him be 1

iff, money and the Dispensary,
On the tariff I hold that the two
great political parties keep a check
on each other. .The Republican
party has always plundered the
people, The Democratic party has
always sought to protect the rights
of the masses. If the Democracy
departs from the principles which
have been held since tho days of
Calhoun and condones on the
ground, of equalizing it, there be
comes to that extent a party wh.chj
builds up one class of its citizens!
by helping to plunder the other/
classes. We are all agreed on the
money lines and I believe in ad
dition that that we should have a
more flexible system. I will de
velop this system more fully later
on. On the Dispensary my posi-f"
tion is pretty well understood, i]
will take a positive stand on. l:he/

Ex-Governor Evans arrived iii
the c.ty on the noon train, but es?
caped the vigilance of the Regi
ter correspondent. He had n^t
registered at any of the hotel
ncr could he be found at the plac
he usually stays while here. Some
said he had gone to enjoy the
breezes on Sullivan's Island, au.l
that is probably where he was.

ing will b'j held.
THE CAMPAIGN MEETING.
The ouiv thing out of the usual
run at the Senatorial campaign
meeting thin evening was the in
cident between Ool. Irby and Edi
tor Appelt of the Manning Times
When Senator Irby got up he sail
ed right into Editor Appelt, who
was sitting in the audience. Col.
Irby said he had always made i
a rule in life whenever hit to hit
back. He had been gratuilously
insulted, and proposed tobit back.
He did not accuse Mr. McLaurin
of the wrong, and d.d not believe
him guilty of such things. He
said the insult appeared in an af
ternoon paper, and was an inter
view from Mr. Appelt, who was
McLaurin's great friend. He s.iid
he had no one following him about,
aud did not want to have any one
going around with him, as he could
lake care of himself. He needed
no striker. He sa d he noticed in
an aftertioou papor an interview
with this friend, for he must l e a
friend as he was called "My Dear
nppelt." (Much laughter.) Now
Mr. Appelt had, without cause or
occasion, offered him a gratuitu
ou"? insult. He was among almost
strangers, and be bad sarci and
preached thal I would not carry.
Laurens County. Now that was
said to injure me, and when it is
indecently and cowardly naid that
I cannot and will not carry my,
own county it is too muoh of ai
good thing. - ^^m'r'''

Mr. Appelt went on to say that

aid what he bad said was a joke

enied the interview.
The audience broke out into ap
lauso, many crying "Irby!"
Chair. Barnwell said: That's
Qougb ; he's explained. He meant
Col. Irby answered the applause,
ad then cried out: "Then that fe
m tam ou nt to saying the report
aB a lie."
There the incident closed.
Col. Irby went on to say that
1 he wanted was fair play, and
tat he expected to have or die in
ie attempt. This provoked much
jplause. . ^. ^^w
geaaWr Irby charged that lhere
as a deep plot afloat which if
?ccessful would raise sectional
leling and ruin Charleston. He
lid be wes in the fight to a finish,
id could not be bulldozed, and
3 would fight on. Tbe first ten
leetings may demoralize candi
ites, but when be got up into the
luntry where the rivers ran,
lings would bo diffeieut.
He tried some ridicule on Mc
aurin's record, and said he made
is first Congressional speech do
inciatory of tije apis tocracy of
)uth Carolina and said in Berke
V that McLaurin was even a
eater Reformer than Tillnan,
it to-night he was different.
McLaurin had the crowd and
mfiued himself entirely to the
riff issue, explaining very fully
s views and vote on lumber, Jgng
itton and rice. These sentiments
ok well. McLaurin is ill and
ill be unable to go to Colleton

His Dispensary views were very

A message was read from John

Mr. Evans was not at the meet
