"When the People Complain the
People are Always Right."
MR. EDITOR: It is hoped that
the committee appointed by the
grand jury to investigate the books
of county officials will publish
their r3port so formulated as to
give the citizens of the county
something tangible. Especially
should they be informed about the
county indebtedness, hov/ much is
current expenses and what amount
of back debts due one or two
years ; and also what arrangements
have been or arc to be made to pay
each. Ask the citizens generally
about these mattere and you get
the reply "don't know."
Some will say the county is two
or three years behind, leaving you
to infer that any claims may be
postponed till such debts are first
paid. Those having claims being
uninformed as to arrangements to
cash their claims are thus imposed
upon by the speculator who stauds
ready to discount at lates ranging
from 65 to 90 cents 011 the dollar.
It is an outrage for the citizens
to have to take scrip at all iuKtead
of cash that proper laws and offi
cial operations and efforts sbould
provide, but to keep the people in
ignorance to be imposed upon both
as taxpayers and claimants by
speculators requires wordrf strong
er than I can use to characterise it.
Surely the clerk, tlje auditor, the
treasurer, the commissioners, our
home representatives and the bor
rowed "Holdtight" fellows cannot
lopger suffer the people they love
so dearly at times to be" imposed
upon by these big discounts and
increased taxes. They cannot
afford to be silent witnesses to'
these discounts and impositions,
but on the contrary should endeav
or to keep claimants correctly in
formed and to make substantial
protest against such actions. Yes,
I am persuaded these officials will
willingly aid any committee in
publishing a tabulated report
showing current expenses for the
year of salaries, court escpenses,
road or bridge claims, etc., the
back indebtedness for one or two
years of the same, and what ar
rangements for paying same have
been made. Surely this commit
tee or the county officials can give
the information why it is necessary
to pay the various expenses of
county goverumout in scrip in
stead of cash.
. Were I a county commissioner I
would urge a substantial protest
against all discounts of claims un
der my supervision by refusing to
honor any claim that had been
discounted out of any funds which
cost the county interest to obtain
or any sinking fund borrowed. I
would declare tnat only those
claims that were in the hands of
original claimants should be cash
ed by a borrowed fund. It is not
right for taxpayers to have to pay
one interest, if possible to avoid it,
much less to pay interest on loans
and the discounts too. The people
of the county should be informed
what amount of the county's debt
is paid to speculators instead of to
the original claimants, how many
claims were made larger in view
of thc fact that no cash was to be
had from county sources, and what
per cent, increase was allowed
credit or discount claims.
Let the people have such in
formation so that common sense
will urge them to take proper steps
to stop this swindling of honest
claimants and taxpayers.

.'A Travesty on Justice."
MK. EDITOK: Why in the world
did you allow that Gaiues-Yeldell
apologist to BignfJuetice" to his
article in defence of tho noxious
ly shabby conduct of those noto
rious "Greenwood gentlemen?" Of
course the writer knows that nei
ther Gaines or Yeldell, of Green
wood county, have any right, legal
or moral, to hold au Edgefield of
fice-an office, to hold which.
Gaines himself says "does not at
all accord with my own ideas ot
propriety." Avaunt, Mr. "Justice,"
for your man Gaines pleads guil
ty-admitting that his sense of
decency, his s^nse of right, his
sense of justice, his ''ideas of pro
priety," does not admit of his re
siding in Greenwood county and
claiming to be the State Senator
for Edgefield county. "Justice'?
pleading in behalf of ? an alien
when that alien is alre ady self
condemned by his ow D admis
sions! "Justice" in this instance,
in his efforts to bolster rap these
'Holdfast and Holdtighl " gentle
man, makes a vain argujment-a
mere travesty on "JusticeV" as it
were. And "Justice's" friend Yel
dell, in running for clerk -bf court
of Greenwood county, and \ trying
to get the appointment of* State
Liquor Commissioner, virtually
admitted that he too, a resident of
Greenwood county, had no yight
to be swinging on to an Edget?eld
office. And had he been elected
to either of the above mei.ticked
offices, he was seeking so asaic?u
ously, he would have kicked h^?
Edgefield office away from him
with a heartless vim, regardless^
of the wishes of "Justice," and
tho "representative men from dif
ferent sections of the county,"
whom "Justice" so eloquently
quotes, and totally regardless of
the now much-written-about an
noyance and inconvenience of ihe
dear people. Yes, that's what
.Pony" would have done, as "Jus
tice" well knows.
"Justice," telling how some of
those "representative men" talk ,
in reference to some of your cor
respondents, says: "Some say:
If Yeldell aud Gaines would throw
a few bonos to those fellows, they
would quit barking at them."
Don bl let-s that is a good scheme,
as ?hat ifi the way runk?r has it
that the Greenwood boys fondled
Brother Yeldell, by giving him a
Hood "tip"-and who knows but
that Brother Y., acting perhaps
from practical experience, cast a
'bone" to "Justice" as a prompt
er of that article for the defence?

MR. EDITOR: I notice thc re has
recently been a great hue and cry
raised in your paper about Messrs.
Gaines and Yeldell's not resigning
their commissions as representa
tives for Edgefield county, and an
outsider judging from the wail
ings of these muke believe politi
eal .benefactors would think that
proud old Edgefield was in great
danger of being plundered, stolen
and carried over to Greenwood
county to be distributed among
the poor offspring of its motht-r
county, by Messrs. Gaines and
Yeldedl. These same would be
benefactors are trying to make the
people of old Edgefield believe
that an overwhelming majority of
her voters are in favor of asking
these gentlemen to resign. In
fact, judging from the vehement
and abusive advectives used in
describing the villainy of these
imaginary political renegados I
was almost persuaded to believe
that a majority of the people of
old Edgefie d, not only wanted
them to resign, but, that they were
so wrought up over the matter,
that if these gentlemen didn't
make haste about the matter they
were in immediate danger of be
ing hanged for political treason,
so I began to look around to see if
the people were really in earnestt
and.to my utter surprise, in all of
my meanderings I found only a
man here and there who thought
they should resign their offices.
I'm afraid the few I did find, were
probably influenced by certain
ambitious politicians, and over
anxious newspapers around and
about Edgefield Court House.
I was talking to a prominent
physician not long since, whose
practice extends over a pretty cou.
siderable portion of Edgefield
county. He said, that in all of
his rounds he had not heard a sin
gle protest against Messrs. Gaines
and Yeldell's holding on their full
terms, and tba1, he believed the
people were perfectly satisfied with
present state of affairs; that these
gentlemen would represent the
whole people of Edgefield just as
they would have done, had they
remained with us. Some person
or persons are not only trying to
bias the people against Messrs,
Gaines and Yeldell in our own
county through our own county
newspapers, but we suspect them
of asking or seeking help from
neighboring county newspapers, a
Newberry paper for instance, to
help run this game of bluff. The)
will find in the end that their ef
forts have been worsted, for Messrs
Gaines and Yeldell are not so easi
ly bluffed as some peoplo would
Now, Mr. Editor, tjie people un?

on them who probably would not
represent the wishes of a majority
of Edgefield's voters. We recog
nize the whole matter as emana

lawyers and court house politi
cians, and a few "me too's," who

Mr. Editor, is it not a little unu
sual for ex-Governors to retrograde
so far as to seek admittance to our
state senate. Isn't it a fact that
certain ambitious lawyers living
not a thousand miles from court
house square would like very
much to try on Chief Justice Mc
Iver's shoes next winter, when t?e
weather gets cold. I simply ask
these two questions for informa

on Gaines" "Hold on Yeldell,"
'till the mists have rolled away.

LAFAYETTE'S FAMOUS VISIT.
There Wa? Great Excitement Over His
Trip to tho United States.
Jean Fraley Hallowell, who writes
in The Ladies' Home Journal of " When
Lafayette Rode Into Philadelphia," |
e.iys that "it is difficult to understand
at this late day what a furore of ex
citement passed over this country when
Lafayette urrivid once more in Amer

remembered while memory endures.
Luring President Monroe's second ad
ministration the Oni ted States extended
its invitation to Lafayette. He arrived
al; Staten Island on Aug. 15 (Sunday),
1324, accompanied hy his son, George
Washington Lafayette, and also by his
son-in-law. A formal reception took
place on the following day, the first
fruits of the moat abundant harvest of
welcome which Lafayetto was to receive
during his year of travel through the
"Lafayette was 67 yean old when he
visited America as the nation's guest
and carried his years lightly. His head
was shaped like that of Burns. He had
a high forehead, long, aquiline nose
and a rather thin face. His hair waa
sandy and quite plentiful. His eye?
were dark gray, restless and twinkling,
his eyebrows light in color, but heavily
marked. His mouth was firm, and his
lips smiled courteously at the holiday
crowd assembled to do him honor. The
general was not very tall, but well
made. Hts face was distinctly pleasant,
and its expression was an odd mixture
of shrewdness, decision and gay good
humor. His costume was a swallow
tailed coat and trousers of dark brown,
with a great display of white waistcoat
and neckcloth. A bunch of seals hung
from a broad black ribbon at his waist
Over his shoulders hung a cloth riding
cloak, greenish blue in color and lined

When urine stains Unen it is positive
evidence of kidney trouble. Too fre

WHAT TO DO.
There is comfort in the knowledge
so often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp Root, the great kidney remedy
fulfills every wish in relieving pain in
the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and
every part of the urinary passages. It
corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain in passing it, or bad
effects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to get up
many times duringj the night to
urinate. The mild and tne extraordi
nary effect of Swamp Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its
wonderful cures of the most distress
ing cases. If you need a medicine ycu
should have the best. Sold by drug
