A Son of North Carolina Selects a
South Carolinian Daughter.
The receutannouncement of the
coming marriage of Miss Sallie
Bailey to Rev Mr Wilkins, of
Cly do, North Carolina, was a sur
prise to the many lriends of Miss
Bailey. The wedding will occur
on Weduefdav, the 29:h of this
m ?nth, at the bowe of Dr T M Bai
ley,in the city of Greenville. Mies
eg Grace nod Lillin-May Bailey
will act as maids' ol tiunor ou ihi*
Mr Wilkins is a nephew of the
honored Dr A C Wilkins, of Bat^e
burg. Beside* being a very mag
netic and handsome young man,
Mr Wilkius has attained promin
ence in the Btate of North Caroli
na by his great energy, accompan
ied bv unusual versatility of tal
ent. He resides in the beautiful
mountain town of Clyde, in west
ern North Carolina, in the romn
tic "Land of the Sky," and haB
charge of* the ''Sykland Baptist,"
and also is principal of the flour
ishing school at that place. In ad
dition he is pastor of ihe Clyde
The depaiture of Miss Bailey
will be deemed a great loss by
Edgefield, but we cannot help re
joicing over the good fortune of
Mr Wilkins in gaiuiug a prize of
such rare value.
The Citizens Interested Held a
Mass Meeting Last Friday
On Friday last the representa
tive men of Pickeus and Wise
townships assembled i^ the court
house in reply to the following
called meeting :
Some time ago Honorable J C
Sheppard, Mayor W W Adams,
President A E Padgett, S McG
Simkins,Esq.,and Mr R A Cochran
were appointed a committee to
take into consideration the ques
tion of the bonded indebtedness of
Pickeus and Wise townships, aud
were requested tojreport to a sub
sequent meeting. Now, that tho
time for the payment of taxes has
expired,"} and no rail road taxes
have been paid, so far as we know,
and the legislature is soon to cou
vene, it is important that the peo
ple of the two townships shal again
meet and consider this most im
portant and serious matter. We
therefore respectfully request our
fellow citizens of Pickeus and
Wise townships to meet in the
Court House at ll o'clock a. m. ou
Friday, the 10th of January, 1902,
for the purpose of cousidering
what shall now be done nuder the
Hou^rable Thomas Rainsford
. was cal led to f.he chair and Mr M
Johii O Sneppani. sharman
co. cn 5ii i tte, offered a resolute a .?? -
questing the i^g.sialiVs di legah -
of Edgetield to Lave au act passed
authorizingonr couuty authorities
to refund the bonds past due and
issue new bonds to run 30 years at
5 per cent.
There was a division of the cit
izens as to the resolutions adopted
by tho committee and Solicitor
Thurmond offered the following:
u Resolved, That our members
in the legislature secure such leg
islation as will.enable the people
of Pickeus aud-*vVise Townships,
to issue new bonds to pay by com
promise or otherwise, the railroad
bonds, if a commission consisting
of three from each .Township to
be named iu the Act, decides that
they shall be settJed."
Mr Thurmond, in discussing his res
olution among other things, said :
I conclude from the resolution offer
ed by the Committee, that it contem
plates issuing new bonds at one nun
di ed cents in tho dollar, for the ola
ones, without delay. Our Supreme
court has declared township RR bonds
unconstitutional unless the road has
been completed through the township,
and this was our our Supreme court's
construction ol our own statutes aud
constitution. Now, che comity be
tween the State and Federal courts re
quires the Federal courts to follow the
decisions of any State Supreme court
on the construction of the .statutes and
constitution of such State. The Fed
eral courts have refused to follow our
Supreme court's decisions in th*? bond
cases, and now there is a clash between
It is admitted law that the Federal
courts tan enforce a judgment for tax
es, as in our case, only through our
County ofiioials. and have no power to
send a marshal to enforce it.
The legislature, following the deci
sions of our Supreme courts, passed an
Act forbidding all officers from levy
ing or collecting this railroad tax, and
our Supreme court bas recently issued
an injunction against the County of
ficers of a certain county, and forbade
and enjoined them from collecting the
sa d tax, and the motion for a perma
nent injunction is pending, and I fa
vor a law that will enable us to issue
the bonds if we have it to do, but am
against paying these bonds until our
own oourt says we hive them to pay I
favor exhausting every means to de
Mr McG Simkin8 made a speech op
posing the adoption of the committee's
and m favor of the Thurmond iesolu
tion. He said that one meant to shut
off all chances of compromise and pay
tbs debt dollar for dollar, while the
other left the way open for a compro
m se,.afld at the same time provided
for legislation authorizing the refund
ing of the debt even though a compro-:
mise was not perfected, ile express-:
ed the opinion that if our State Su
preme court granted the injunction
asked for in the Greenville case, that
we should also ask- for poe. and that
if we showed a determined right tlje
pond holders woijld eventually eena-:

P Sneppard,A E Padgett S B May
son and-A g Tompkius on the one
aide, and j W Thurmond, B, E
Nicholson, James H Tillman aud
S McG Simkina.
We have not thc resolutions of
tine committee, but really there is
put little difference in the tpeau?
ing of the two. The resolutions
prepared by the committee were
adopted by a vote of 23 to 25.
