MK. TH OS. J. ADAMS,
Former Editor of The Adver-|
tiscr, Passed Away Friday.
On Friday afternoon lastlo
Mr. Thomas J. Adams diedj?
at the home of his daughterjb
Mrs. Julian L. Minis. Hep
had passed, by several|
months, his fifty-sixth birth
Mr, Adams had an apo
plectic stroke about 3 years
ago. This partial paralysis
yielded to treatment and he
apparently recovered. For
more than a year, however,
he has been in failing health.
"The decline for severall'
months'has been very rapid.|
His symptoms indicated a dis
ease of a deep seated nature
and but little hope for his re
covery has been entertained
by those who have daily and
hourly watched over and min
istered to him.. The immedi
ate cause of his death was
heart trouble which resulted
from Bright's disease. As
usual with this dread disease,
the end came very suddenly
and*without a struggle or a
pain. He was conscious and
engaged in conversation with
those about him up to within
a few moments before, his
death. Mr. Adams bore up
un.der.the long months of sick
ness and suffering with an un
usual degree of patience. He
was hopeful of his ultimate
recovery and never became
despondent over his condition
until several days preceding
the end. He expressed him
self as resigned and not afraid
to face death.
One by one the veterans oi
the Civil war pass over the
river. Mr. Adams enlistee
at the beginning of the wai
. and served for the entire foti]
years, receiving wounds ir
two battles, one in ead
hand. Since the furling o:
the flag at Appomattox th?
old battle scarred veteran:
sity of Virginia; later he tool
a special course at Unior
college, Schenectady. Nev
5?<rrk. - While taking this
post-graduate course he
served the college as adjunct
professor of mathematics.
Having completed his edu
cation he traveled for a time,
spending one year in Brazil
Then after teaching severa,
years in Florida he came to
Edgefield, read law and was
admitted to the bar. He was
actively engaged in the prac
tice of law until he purchased
the EDGEFIELD ADVERTISER.
For nearly thirty years Mr
Adams was editor and pro
prietor of the ADVERTISER
It was largely through his ef
forts that this paper won the
prestige it has enjoyed for
years It was ably edited and
judiciously managed. The fi
nancial success which he
achieved attends but few
Mr Adams was born ant"!
reared in the Limestone sec-fc
tion of this county, but for?
more than a generation hasr
been actively identified with]
the affairs, of the town of
Edgefield. Mr. Adams never
sought political preferment,
on the- contrary, being of a
retiring disposition, he avoid
ed publicity 01 every form.
But few understood his life.
Charities were frequently dis
pensed by him of which the
outside world knew nothing.
Mr. Adams was anxious to
see Rev Dr Gwakney, hi
former pastor, when he visit
ed Edgefield, but this privi
ege and pleasure was denied
lim as he passed away a short
while after Dr. Gwaltney ar
Mr,, Adams' only sister.
Mrs W ? Duckworth, of Bre*
varcif JS" C, was with him dur
ing the last/&ays of his illness
and when /he passed through
the valley of the shadow of
death./Her presence and sym
pathy/helped him greatly to
bear up under the awful mal
acjry. His only brother, Mr. H
/Q^Adams, of Ridgeland, was
unavoidably absent and coulds Ur
not be present at the funeral,!*T
which was he.d on Saturday!^
afternoon from the Baptistj*h(
church, Dr. Gwaltney ofri-|he,

'RIMAR t VS THE
Despite the action of the
;tate Democratic convention
vhich placed the election oil
lispenser by" primary under
he ban there are many who
entertain the belief that the
lispenser should be elected
oy the people. THE ADVER
TISER, after due considerab
an, concurs in this opinion, lt
is contrary to Democratic
principle to divest 1500 or
more electors of this county
of this inalienable right and
delegate it to three men, or
?more properly two, for a ma
jority vote of the board pre
vails. We cast no reflection
upon our county board for it
lis a good one.
The people of a county
should haye tlueright to choose
by ballot those who shall fill
the offices in the county and
whatever precludes this is sub
sersive of government by and
prejudicial to the best inter
ests of the people. This, as
all other salaried offices of a
county, should be open to
competition to all good men
who aspire to fill it. Let the
people pass upon their fitness
and uot leave it to a board to
choose in some cases favor
lites or, as is the case in some
counties, the man who has
the strongest political "pull".
It is fallacious and specious
argument to say that keeping
this office from thc people
keeps the dispensary out of
politics. The iniquitious busi
ness was conceived in politics
and has been directed by pol
iticians since its inception.
A county-board-elected dis
(wan tioTTC-CO ~?UH*?ly 111]Ti/
dreds. In which case is the
formation of a political ring
the more probable ?
A dispenser secure in his
position and in tne affection
)f a board can use his iaftu
:nce to defeat candidates for
other offices whom he may
chance to dislike. Whereas,
if his holding office depends
upon the suffrage of the peol
pie, he dare not do this.
It is a gross insult to say
?that the people cannot bel
trusted to choose a competenl
man in the primary. They
[choose competent men for the
other offices, why not for
Is it just and equitable toi
'require aspirants to the other|
offices to incur the "heat and
burden,*9 to say nothing of
the expenses of a campaign j
and not require it of the mani:'1

salary, a much larger one|c
than some other officials re
The dispensary, while we
admit that it has accomplish
ed some good, is a colossal po
litical octopus whose body is
in Columbia, but whose ten
incles are fastened upon ev
5ry community in which a
iiapensary is "located. Thel
political power of this vam
pire is augmented in propor
