Edgefield, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, MAR. 5, 1902.
Tillman and McLaurin are
the cynosure of the eyes of the
world, but their office is not a
sinecure by any means.
Admiral Schley made a
*'retrograde movement" when
he appealed to the President
from the findings of the court
of inquiry, as much has been
lost and nothing gained there
by. Admiral Dewey and the
people have accorded him the
honors in one of the most
notable naval victories record
dd in history . If these be for
him v ho L'*r <-'--.- f Mr* ~
THE ACADEMY GROVE.
The place around which so
many historic reminiscences
cluster, known as the Acade
my grove, should receive at
tention. Time has thinned
out the once numerous and
beautiful trees. The remain
ing oaks that are bowed and
broken under the weight of j
years have echoed and re-ech
oed the eloquence of many
of Carolina's intellectual gi
ants at public convocations.
"The playful children just
let loose from school" should
have a shaded playground.
Thh Edgefield youth should
have a trysting place when
pleasure bent, and those re
doubtable knights, candidaies
for office, must be furnished a
field of contest in which to
win or lose their spurs as the
case may be.
In short, it behooves the
people of our town, until our
public squre is again suitable,
to provide a place for open air
assemblages. Fifty trees
should be set in the old grove.
Some may say that " the

Bpjvitation to Sen
ator Tillman to a reception
, given in honor of Prince Hen
ry. After Senator Tillman
was adjudged in contempt of
the senate, the President with
drew the invitation, assigning
as a reason for the withdrawal
that it would be an act of dis
courtesy to the senate and his
guest to have one present who
_^Jiad been deprived of the pri
vileges of a senator. In con
sequence of and retaliation
for this seeming affront to
Senator Tillman, Colonel Jas.
H Tillman last Thursday wir
ed President Roosevelt re
questing a withdrawal of his
acceptance of an invitation to
present a sword to Major
Mich Jenkins, who was a gal
lant member of the "Rough
Rider" regiment from South
Carolina during the Spanish
American war. The presen
tation was to have taken place
during the President's visit to
the Charleston Expositon
^ about the middle of March.
BfcfVhether Colonel Tillman act
ed wisely or not,he personally i
had a right to withdraw an j
invitation which he had ex i
tended to the President, but i
he exceeded his authority
when he signed his name as
Lieutenant Governor of South
Carolina to the withdrawal of
the invitation, thereby appar
ently making every citizen of
the State particeps criminis in
the indignity to the President.
Ta correct this erroneous im
Jltesion Governor McSween
tm Wired the President that
HKIonel Tillman did not speak
officially for the State or the
people, but it was purely
personal matter. .
A fitting sequel to the above
is that Major Jenkins has wir
ed Colonel J H Tillman that,
under the circumstances, he
declines to accept the sword.
Being engraved, it is now an
elephant, a huge one, too, on

The Senate has disposed of the
natter by passing resolutions cen
raring them for "their disorderly
behavior and flagrant violations of
;he privileges and dignity" of that
body. After this reprimand the
H der adjudging them in contempt
ffas withdrawn. Both of the son
atore are so accustomed to being
the target of caustic langusge that
it is doubtful whether or not the
resolution had any sting to them.
It was an instance of "Greek
meets Greek" when Tillman
and Roosevelt crossedswords,
or rather pens, in the invita
The postal authorities have
decided upon a new stamp of
the denomination of thirteen
cents. Certain persons pos
sessed of superstitious scru
ples with reference to the num
ber 13,would consider a pack
age ill fated if it bore a stamp
of this unlucky number.
The business men of Au
gusta are, through the recent
ly organized Chamber of
commerce, doing some solid
\v->rk for the upbuilding of
i. ...;; com acres .
aaa industrial lines. When a
cause is championed by such
an invincible phalaux of rep
resentative citizens, success
will crown their efforts. Ma)'
this organization accomplish
for our sister city across the
river more than its most san
guine promoters anticipate.
A site of live acres in the
suburbs of Augusta has re
cently been purchased by cap
italists who will build thereon
a $100,000 cotton seed oil
plant with a soap factory an
nexed. Certain refuse pro
ducts of the mill are to be
(Utilized by being made into
?soap. With increased manu
facturing capacity so near us
will come increased demand,
which, in turn, should bring
increase in price of cotton
seed. This is an omen of good
to those who are in the habit
of selling their seed.
An election was held in
Rome, Georgia, a few days
ago to decide whether or not
the barrooms be abolished
and a dispensary established.
.Twnia wilt exose ' meir doors
and a dispensary will be open
ed. If the quantity of liquor
consumed and the crime and
misery resulting therefrom be
reduced in proportion to the
number of places at which in
toxicants are offered for sale,
the dispensary ,thus far, will
prove a blessing.
Methodist Facts and Figures.
The following from a circu
lar letter issued by Rev.G.W.
Davis, pastor of the Edgefield
Methodist church, to be sent
to the members, will prove of
interest to our readers :
Twenty-five years ago the
M. E. church, South, occu
pied but one foreign field, and
had in that field but two Mis
sionaries,three native preach
ers, four Bible women and
seventy-four native communi
cants. The contributions less
than $100 for all puroses.
Today our church occupies
six foreign fields-China, Ja
pan, Korea, Brazil, Mexico
and Cuba. In them it has 193
missionaries, 100 native trav
elling preachers, 11,000 mem
bers, 65 Bible women; over
5,000 women and children un
der instruction; six hospitals
n which more than 13,000
patients are treated annually.
In iQoo the church abroad ,
*aised more than $31,000
tor all purposes. These fig- ,
ares are inspiring, and figures ;
n religious work do not tell ?
lalf the story. 1
If I could give the figures
-dative to our Domestic Mis- ,
sions, I doubt not they would <
3e fully as cheering. God is i
ising the Sanctified gifts of '
tlis people, and at home and j
ibroad, is giving precious \
;ouls in exchange for gold. 1
Conviction grows on the 1
;hurch that our Missionary I
issessments, representing as
hey do a minimum of need,
ihouldbe paid in full. Seven
mnual conferences paid theirs
n full last year. In Confer
eces that did not, a number
