WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18, 1902.
Are the people of Edgefield
county unfit to select a coun
ty dispenser ? NO.
When the people by a ma
jority vote in the primary sug- j
gest a man lor dispenser to |
the county board what harm
can come of it ? None ! '
What may be very proper
ly called the first campaign]
meeting was held at Don
ald's, Abbeville county, on
Saturday last at which the
candidates for governor, fort
the United States senate and
for congress spoke. The
meeting was not as largely
attended as was expected.
Everything passed off quietly
and pleasantly. The candi
dates discussed measures in-j
stead of men. The cause of I
education,especially the com
mon schools, was champion
ed by every aspirant for gub- j
ernatorial honors. This is
well. We trust and M?ev'-:
that much good will :
this agitation of the :-n ?
school que tion. If this, the
first meeting of the campaign,
is a fair specimen of what
those that follow are to be,
much good will result from
them instead of much evil, as
has been the case for a dozen
years and more.
The first campaign meet
ings according to the regular
schedule were held on yester
day-State in Sumter, F?d?r
erai in Columbia.
The meeting was called to
order by Chairman Rainsford
at the appointed hour. N G
Evans, Esq., was at his post
as clerk. The first business to
receive the attention of the
committee was the state cam
paign meetings. An invita
tation from J W DeVore,Esq,
to hold these meetings in the
grove near his home was ac
cepted. A suitable platform
for the speakers and seats for
the audience will be erected
at the proper time.
A resolution introduc
ed by Mr W W Adams pro
viding for the selection of dis
penser in the primary was,af
ter some discusi?n, pro and
con, adopted by a decided
majority. It was not the
spirit of- the majority to dig
regard the action of the state
convention. I n their judg
ment, however, th? people
should, on the ground of local
self government, choose the
m*n to fill this place.
TkftM ir? the assessments
made upon the candidates:
Candidates for Governor from
this county $5 ; Congressmen
from this district $5 ; House
of Representatives $2.50 ;Dis
penser $5 ; Audi' ir 5 ; c.
intendent of Education
Treasurer $5 : L r
$2.50; Probate Judge 5.00;'
County commissioners 1.00;
Supervisor of Registration
i.00. Half of the amount re
ceived from the defeated can
didates to be returned to them
Candidates must pay their
assessments and file their
pledges on or before 12
of August sth.
Gen. >i; C. Butler bas recently
made speeches in Augusta, at tb>
Charleston Exposition, ai Raleigh,
N. C.,and elsewhere in advocacy of
a public awakening on the road
subject. Here ls something he said
at Raleigh, which should command
attention in Edgefield as nowhere
"If something is not done in my
section oHhe county-I do not
know how it is with you-the de
population of the country districts
will be complete; the people ure
not going to live where they can
not get about. The young men will
come to tho towns and cities: the
tendency is everywhere towards the
concentration nf population and
the depopulation ofj the country
districts; but d?cent roads will ob
viate this to a great degree".
I have recently been trying to press
this important view to the atten
tion of the people of Edge?eld
county. Asl have before urged,
and as Gen. Butler says, if some
thing is not done soon "the de
population of the country will be
complete." I cannot understand
how some people can sit down and
see their property depreciating in
value every day and be unwilling
to do anything to stop it. As I have
before called attention to the fact,
in many parts of our county there
are fewer white people now than
there were before the war. The
county along the railroads though,
have generally increased in popula
tien. Laud in the interior of the
county worth twenty years ago $101
and $12 an acre, with the people
rich who owned large plantations,
now goes begging at $5 and legs.
Why ? Because the people hate
shifted ; some land has gone up
(on the railroads) a:id interior
land has gone dowu. Because of
this decline in value our people
have beeu impoverished to a great
degree ; a great many of them have
had to mortgage and sell their
land, some has been sold
by the sheriff, bringing little for
their all. This isbecause4of the con
dition of the roads - the trauspor-l
tation facilities. As Gen. Butler!
says, people are not going to live
where they can't get about. They
gradually go to better localities in
th'f?\v own county or elsewhere The
? oi'ia;i lil iv?* and it inp o
. -- ?jjtn go svhrtre they can
gei the mos! und best. It costs three
and four times as much to do haul
ing in Edgefield that it should
cost,aud that it costs in good roads
sections. We drag aloug with little
loads of a half ton, while in the
Staion with good road? from two
to four tons are hauled : we travel
on our uneven, bumpy, rutty roads
with their holes at from 3 too m ilea
and hour while ia good roads sec
tions they go at from 8 to 10 miles
and their vehioles are a little hurt.

so is Aiken County-claying her

The Advertiser does not arro
gate to itself the credit for the
action of the Executive Committee
in putting the dispenser in the
primary but we are glad thc t said
action is an endorsement of ourj
views as set forth in kn editorial

Last Sunday was set apart
and observed as children's

have answered to his name.
