Edgefield, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, OCT. 22, 1902.
Walhalla is to have a
"horse swapper's" convention
during court week in Novem
ber. Edgefield's "bone-yard"
should send a delegation.
Some of our street traders,
however, do not need further
schooling in the ways that are
dark and tricks that are vain.
The grand lodge ot Penn
sylvania is making elaborate
preparations for celebrating
on Nov. the 4th the one hun
dred and fiftieth anniversary
of George Washington's initi
ation into the Masonic frater
nity. President Roosevelt,
who is a member of the Oys

At a Republican rally in
Aiken on Saturday last W. S.
Dixon, of Barn well, was nom
inated for congress. Every
Democratic voter in the sec
ond district should turn out
and cast his ballot for Col.
George W. Croft in the gen
eral election. The election
may be contested so let us
make the majority unpreced
entedly great. "
The Southern Christian Ad
v?catele organ of the Meth
odist denomination in South
Carolina,is now published in
Crangeburg but will at an
early date be issued from the
press of the Spartanburg Her
aid. The Advocate compares
very favorably v/ith the lead
ing religious papers of the
country and we trust that this
irinerancy will be promotive
pf its welfare rather than re
sult in detriment to it. We
ci ay be considered presump
permanent home for the Ad

Leaders of the "?mart set"
of some of-the large cities are
smarting under the prickings
of the pen of Henry Watter
son. His editarais are not
overdrawn but pictures of the f
real condition. They simply
enable some of the "four
hundred" to see themselves
and their doing as others see
them. Mr. Watterson has
turned on the search-light
and exposed to the gaze of
the world the multitude of
social pr "sawciety" sins that
money has heretofore covered
so effectively. That many of
the society leaders are in
return showering anathemas
upon him for condemning
wickendness in high places
is to be expected,,
' Uncle Sam should provide
a house of detention for all
fanatics of the Carrie Nation
type. Their roaming over
the country without let or
hindrance is a great nuisance.
That Mrs. Nation continues
her "hatchetation" is shown
by the following incident : A
few davs ago she entered a
saloon in Austin, Texas, with
the avowed purpose of de
molishing its contents, but the
proprietor, an alderman of
the city, being present and
taking in the situation also
took Mrs. Nation by the nape
of the neck and cast her out
bodily. What a spectacle,
and after all what good comes
pf it ?
Reforms are needed, especial
ly in Mrs. Nations chosen
field, but there are right ',
ways and ,wrong ways of
bringing about reforms. The
course she persues brings re
proach upon the cause which
she endeavors to advance.The
writer, along with millions of
others,wou?d rejoice at seeing
every barroom in the land
dispensaries included - d e
stroyed in toto but the modus
operandi of some temperance ,
workers who labor to this end 1
is far from what it should be, !
The end, although a laudable ,
one, does not justify the .
THE STALE FAIR
In less than a week crowds
will be flocking to Columbia
from every point of the com
pass to attend the annual state
fair to be held October 28-31.
Many people have been for
years regular attendants upon
this festive occasion. It af
fords a pleasant surcease from
the regular routine of life's
. Every section should, as a
matter of county and state
pride, be represented among
the exhibits. We do not know
to what extent the produce
and resources of our county
will be exhibited but we trust
.that she will send her full
quota-a very great number
-of visitors. Take the school
children down for a day;they
would be greatly benefitted
by the trip. Send the boys
from the farm ; besides break
ing the monotony of farm life
the splendid exhibits of farm
produce, hogs, sheep, cows
and horses would be a stimu
lus or incentive to them for
months afterwards. The
! merchants should give their
clerks a day off for the fair.
On their return they would
greet customers with brighter
faces, having something new
to think and talk of. Let the
farmers, doctors, lawyers,
merchants, the loafers and
laboring men, one and all,
with their wives, daughters or
sweethearts,pay tribute to the
fair by attending at least one
day. Such/a trip will give
length to your days and
breadth to your mind besides
aid and encouragement to
the promoters of the fair.
The time for the general
election, November 4th, is
drawing near. The Demo
cratic voters, not only of Edge
field county and South Caro
lina but of the entire South,
should vote with the same
eagerness and persistency in
this election as they did in the
primary. Many will be neg
ligent or indifferent about go
ing to the polls simply because
their friends were defeated or
elected, as the case may be,
in the primary, deeming it not
worth their while.
This, in a sense, is a sel
fish view to take of it. We
should be actuated by a high
er motjye, thai: of the welfare
Damocles, the threat, by the
party in power, to reduce the
South's representation in the
national congress. We do
not believe that there is any
probability of this being done,
butin order to preclude the
possibility of it we should
vote our full strength. It be
hooves us as citizens who love
the southland, every inch of
which has been hallowed by
the blood and sacrifices of our
fathers, to do our full duty.
Especially true when the duty
in question is simply that of
casting our ballot.
Now that the Republican
party in the State has nomi
nated candidates in several of
the congressional districts, it
is all the more incumbent, in
fact, imperative, that the
Democratic citizens bear in
mind the*general election. Of
course it matters not what
contingency may arise the
Democratic majority will be
great but it will be greater,
vastly greater, if every one
who should,will vote. Vote,
vote, and again we say, vote
on Tuesday, November 4th.
