At the request of the Committee

surrendered two months of Rev.
W. T. Matthews' time to be put in
the Edgefield group of churches.
He went down there the first of
June with the intention of preach
ing oue month then and putting
in the other month later, but after
wards decided to put in both
mouths while there. Last week
we made mention of his return
and this week we will pub
lish a brief outline of his work,
which information Mr. Matthews
kindly furnishes us. The field
had greatly run down and could
nos support a pastor. Meetings
were held at Edgefield, Johnston

united with the Presbyterian
church and among them were some

Honor to Whom Honor.
Mr. W. H. Lawrence, in the Co
lumbia Register, has the following
to say of Edgefield officials:
Your notice of my report of col
ecting taxes for Edgefield county
lor 1895-6 fiscal year, does not give
all credit to whom credit belongs.
Under our law for the charging and
and collecting of tuxes, the audi
tor, who does his duty, is clearly
entitled to most credit because he
alone is charged with the duty of
making up the books from which
the treasurer collects. This col-1
lection evidently shows that the
auditor, by co-operation no doubt
with the treasurer and sheriff,
eliminated nearly or quite all
errors, double entries or non est
entries irom the tax duplicate for
this particular year, and whatever
of unpaid taxes went into execu
tion, the sheriff and his deputies
must have worked earnestly to
collect same within time prescribed
by law. I am sure the treasurer
did his duty, and well, but he can
not be entitled to any more credit,
perhaps as not as much praise as
auditor or sheriff. All deserve
praise, and should be proud of

LET US ELECT OUR OWN
To the People of Edgefieid
If right is to prevail, if justice
is to be done, if th* Constitution
and the laws of this land ara lo
govern this country, we the people
of Edgefield county are entitled lo
one State Senator from this county
and three members of the House
of Repr?sentatives, and are e rual
in ever}' other respect in political
rights to the citizens of every other
county in the Stale.
In every other instance in the
formation of new counties in this
State, (and there have been sev
Bial), elections have been held to
fill the vacancies created in both
the new and the old counties, ex
cept in Edgefield. We have been
cut up, slashed about, and robbed
Df our territory, but with her his
tory, traditions and glories of the
past we stil 1 have left the proud
name of old Edgefield.
We know our rights and propose
to have them . . know the reason
whv. Wr . " a county are entitled
to as ^uch representation, accord,
ing to the Constitution, as any
other county in the State, and we
accept no other basis than a basis
of equality. We want that or
Taxation without representation
is a tyranical wrong that this gov
ernment, in its incipiency, was
born fighting, and its unjust prin
ciples are as adverse to the true
8entimouts of liberty, and as ob
noxious to tho honest patriotism
of the descendants of to-day as
they were to the ancestors in tho
times of yore, who now sleep the
sleep of a heroic dead, on the
battle fields of this great country,
from Bunker Hill to- Charleston
harbor, and though the King be
against us we do not propose to be
wronged without protest. The
iron heel of oppression will never
be placed upon the necks of Edge
field people with the humble sub
mission and obedience of slaves.
The Constitution of this State,
which those high in authority have
sworn on their oaths to rule the
people by, says in these words :
"The Senate shall be composed
ot one member from each county."
Art. 3, Sec. 6: "If any person
chosen a member of either house
shall refuse to qualify and take
his seat, or shall resign, die, de
part the State, accept any disqual
ifying office or position, or become
otherwise disqualified to hold his
seat, a writ of election shall be is
sued by the President of the Sen
ate or Speaker of the House of
Representatives, as the case may
be, for the purpose of filling the
vacancy thereby occasioned for the
remainder of the term for which
the person so refusing to qualify,
resigning, dying, departing the
State, or becoming disqualified, was
elected to serve."
Now, where is the member
"from" Edgefield? Mr. Gaines ie
not from Edgefield. He is ''from'1
Greenwood county, a county with
its own officers elected and in the
discharge of their respective dutief
as complete and independent ci
the county of Edgefield as is the
county of Charleston, and Mr
Gaines has no more rieht to repre
sent Edgefield in the State Senat?
than a citizen from the county oJ
Charleston has. Mr. Gaines an<
Mr. Yeldell cannot vote in th
county of Edgefield and they hav<
no right to hold an office here.
Now, the opinion from the Attor
ney General's office admits tba
Mr. Gaines is a qualified elector o
Greenwood county and not o
Edgefield county, but states tha
"this change was not voluntarily
made by Mr. Gaines." This is no
so, for Mr. Gaines has been work
ing for years to get in the ne\
county of Greenwood. But wha
has voluntary got to do with it
It looks to me like when a man i
in a certain place, it matters no
whether he voluntarily walks ou
of it or is put out of it by opera
tion of law he is not "in it," an
the place must be vacant. Accord
ing to this new doctrine of "volur
tary" aud "involuntar " vacatiuf
if a Senator should commit BU
cide, which would be "voluntary
death, the President of the Senal
could forthwith order an electio
to fill the vacancy, but if the Set
ator should involuntarily die, tin
is be much opposed to dying, as ;
the usual case with a Senator, the
and upon this event, the Presider
of the Senate oould not order a
election to fill the vacancy withou
waiting to get a vote of tho Senal
to see whether or not the place wi
vacant. I think that this opinio
that come from the Attorney Gei
eral's office must have been writte
by the porter in that office.
This opinion expressly state
that it does not decide the matti
or give any opinion as to whethi
or not there is a vacancy in ti
senatorship of Edgefield, it doi
not say but what there really is
vacancy, but advises the Preside]
of the Senate to let the Senate a
in this matter. Well, unless v
have a representative there who
going to bring this matter up b
fore the Senate? And if it
brought up what will be the ui
if we win we will have no one
represent us there. Would it n
have been much better to have ?
lowed us to have legally elected
man at the same time at the p:
mary for the nomination of a Ur
ted States senator on the 31st
August inst? By this course R
Gaines would not have lost any of
his rights if he is entitled to the
place, and tbe people of Edgefield
county would have been placed in
a position to try their rights be
fore the Senate if that be the proper
tribunal, but by this opinion the
interest and rights of a whole
county is subrogated to the person
al interest and greed of one man.
The secret of tbe whole thing is
that the two Jacks they already
hold suit their hand and they do
not want to make another draw.
It is not the object of this article
to argue the points of law in this
case, I propose to do that later ou
before the courts, but the object of
this article is to suggest to the peo
ple a plan to secure our rignts.
There were three shots that I in
tended to fire at them, thinking
that I might be able to bring them
down with one out of the three.
The first I have fired, aud I did
not get them, this was the letter
to Mr. McSweeney. The second
shot at them will be a mandamus
proceeding in the courts, that is, I
will make an application to the
court for a writ of mandamus
against the President of the Senate
to compel him to issue the writ of .
election, or show cause, if he eau,
why he should not do so. But on
account of the delay incident to i
proct .^ingp in' court, I do not 1
think I eau get the matter deter- e
"?nined before the 31st of August, ,
and in case the coutts fail to give
us relief, then I waut to be in a }
position to fire one more parting J
shot at them, aud that is this: I ]
take the position that the senator- y
ship from Edgefield is vacant, and j
one seat in the House of Repre
sentatives from this county, and I 1
want some good meu to announce 1
themselves as candidates and inn j
for these offices, and be elected/by ,
a majority of the votes cast in the ^
coming primary. The people will
have to go to the polls anyway and
it will not be any additional j
trouble to vote for our own repre
sentatives. If we give our men a
good majority, it is true it will not
be technically a legal election, but
it will express the will of our peo
ple. All that it will lack will be
the writ of election, aud with our
record showing that we have done
all that we could to get that, and
it is no fault of ours that we
haven?t.got it, I believe that each
house will waive this irregularity
and seat our representatives.
So I hope some good meu will
come out and run for these posi
tions, and I take the pleasure and
liberty, without his knowledge or
consent, of nominating for the
senatorship from Edgefield Dr.
Robert McKie, of Colliers, who is
a Christian gentleman aud able
mau, and not an o?T?ce seeker, and
I think that he will make us a
good Senator and hope he will con
sent to run.
Of course, we feel very grateful
towards tho Hon. J. M. Gaines
and the Hon. W.H. Yuldell for
their seeming interest in our wel
fare and wau ting to save us the
trouble of an extra election, but it
would have been very little addi
tional trouble to vote for our own
representatives whiln we were
voting fora United States senator
, and then when it comes to princi
ple we do not count the cost. Es
i pecially do we feel grateful to
wards the Hon. W. H. Yeldell for
his interest in our welfare. He
sought the world over for a better
job and having failed he uow feels
it ?3 his patriotic duty to come
back and squat on Edgefield. Well,
while we appreciate the broad pa
triotism of the distiuguished gen
tlemen, we do not need him in our
These renegade statesmen and
tramp politicians must shake their
heels of Edgefield dirt and crawl
in their own native holes. The
only consolation we have is that
we have been cut off from them,
and we do not propose to be robbed
of that coiiHolatiou.

Some New Thoughts on an Old
Mr. EDITOR: Born of necessity
there is bound to bo a change ir
the road working system. Oui
roads, generally speaking, are ?
shame to the county. More espO'
cially cnn this shame be appliec
to the westorn and southwester!
portion of Edgefield. The plan '.
propose, although not altpgethe
materialized, is this: Let a law bi
passed, for Edgefield county a
least, making it imperative upoi
each and every land hoi der to worl
or have worked all roads, both pub
lie and settlement roads, runninj
through sn id laud-holder's prem
Should a road be aline, then le
those who own the land on eacl
side of the road work the road
not forcing any one to work an;
specified lime, but simply requir
roads to be kept in goodconditior
Let ? fine be imposed on any on
who refuses or fails t:> keep thei
roads in good condition.
Let the county chain gang kee
all bridges in gond repair an
macadamize the worst places i
the roads that are the most trave
By th's plan I believe rao?tpe<
?le would take a pride in having
?ood roads on their premises and
?"ie with pach other in seeing who
aas the best roads.
"Every man sweep before his
)wn door and the streets will be
ilean." What will be the result
in ten or fifteen years? Doubtless
;ood roads everywhere and a groat
leal of macadamized puolic high
ways. This is a progressive age
md we should progress. Civiliza
tion is known and judged by its
How much better are our roads
;han they were fifty years ago?
By the above plan what will be
;he improvement fifty years hence?
Many settlement roads are travel
id as much as the public roads,
md there are numbers of farms
hrough which no public road
'uns, hence the requirement and
necessity to have settlement roads
To show the necessity of a
hange in the road law I will men
tion this as an example:
Part of the public highway lead
ng from here to Augusta has not
seen worked this year unless work
id within the last fifteen days.
People went six miles out of the
vay to avoid this road. The pub
ic road leading from hore to the
Red Oak Grove church was not
vorked this year until court week
,n Angust, and is still almost im
passable. I would be glad to hear
from others on the road question
for 'tis a vital question and con
cerns us more than the tariff or
the "Greenwood gentlemen."
I hope this question will be ag
itated by the people and by the
legislators, the merits and de'
merits of the above plan discussed
aired and modeled into a good law.
Dunghills fight better on their
own domain and I think road
workers would work better on their
own stamping ground.
