WEDNESDAY, A?G. 16, 1906.
On The Hustings.
ii The candidates aie almost on
the home stretch, the election
being less than two weeks off. Only
one more meeting is yet to be held,
and that will be in the court house
on the 23rd inst. As the time
grows Fhorter the campaigning
Some of the voters rou~d about
Ropers vere either very busy on
their farms on Thursday la&t or
are taking no part or parcel ?in
politics. The attendance upon the
meeting at that- place was vtry
Email. Even some of the candidates
came up missing. However, a very
barroouious aud }. leasact day was
spent by all who wero presfiut.
Ou Friday, at Rehoboth, oue ot
the best of the series of meetings
was held. The attendance, while
not large, was very representative.
A more intelligent, good-natured
aggregation of voters is seid m
seen. Crops in that vicinity witb
some exceptions are exceedingly
good, consequently most of the
farmers were in a mood to enjoy a
Tibe roll call of. candidates
would scarcely, have revealed
missing place iu theil ranks. Gen
erally speaking, they are a fine
looking set of fellows. The good
pasture upon which the racers have
been browsing during the past few
weeks has greatly improved
them. They are better groomed
their hair looks better-th? ir an
gles are not ~eo sharp-the emile
which they wear for everybody,
though assumed at first, now
Beems to be entirely natural. In
deed, sc well do the'present "pie
bunters" compare with tht.se of
past campaigus, that we want
them all to assemble in a group
on the court: housf steps OD the
day of the 'meeting at Edgefield
aud have their pictures "struck."
By all meaos let this be done be
fore the election. If it is done
after the votes aro counted, some
will then be so puffed-up over
their victory aud others so down
cast over their defeat that they
will not look like themselves.
The speeches at Rebobotb,
shewed a marked improvement.
While practically the same ground
was covered by those who spoke,
yet the speeches were clothed in
different language and were de
livered in an easier, more graceful
and more effective ia an uer. The
writer took notes and expected to
report the meetmg somewhat in
detail, but, hav'ug to publish the
very leDgthy report of the grand
jury this week, we have not the
space for a full report. The can
didates for the House, Superin
tendent of Education and Couuty
Supervisor spoke on this occasion.
Two candidates for congress, B.
B. Hare and G. L. Toole, also ad
dressed the audience in the after

A thoroughly cooked, delight
fully - seasoned barbecue dinner
was served on a long table under
the spreading oaks. Those who
partook of this bountiful dinner
pronounced Jack Whatley, the
chief ccok on this occasion, to be

of "soft drinks," Jim Gilchrist
can't be beat.
Presentment of Grand Jury, Au
_ ?Tust Court.
To his Honor, J. C. Klugb, Pre
siding Judge, At the August term
of Court. 1906:
Wo have passed on all Bills of
Indictment handed out to us and
made our report of findings to the
court. The committees appointed
to examine Books and Accounts
of County Officials, Roads,
Bridges and Ferries and Jail and
Public Buildings have made their
reports to us and their reports are
presented herewith as a part of
We recommend and call upon
the Copnty Supervisor aod the
County Board of Commissioners
to rescind the contract made for
an iron bridge over Stevens creek
at Price's mill. Our recommenda
tion in this matter is made be
oauee we see that the company
contracting to furnish the materi
al for this bridge has not complied
with its contract as to time it was
to finish the bridge. The bridge
was to be finished by July 1st,
1906, and at preseut no material
has been delivered for the bridge,
and for the further reasons that
we do not believe that the couuty
should incur the expanse of an
hon bridge at this point, as it isl
not one of thc main thoroughfares
of the county, and we do not see J
that the couuty is in financial
condition- to nay for the work
when it is done.
We note the settlement sheets
have been preparrd by the county
Auditor aud witnessed by the
Comptroller Geueral in which
there is charged as a balance due
by Ex-Trnasurer, C. M. Williams,
"to Edg*?fi?ld county the sum of
11433 95. We recommend that Ex
Treasurer, C. M. Williamp, be rf
quired to pay luto the county
Treasury this amount, and if same
is not pa-rdjn a reasonable time
that Bait bs brought os his bond
for the recovery of this sum !for
It appears from the settlement
made Ly County Treasurer J. T.
Pattison up to October 15th. 1905,
that this officer has put up more
money than the correct amount nf
bis shortage and wej recommend
that the County Supervisor be
authorized to draw his warrant ou
the Couuty Treasurer "in favor of
J. T. Pattison for the amount of
$1433.95, which seems to te the
amount he was recfuired by the
Comptroller General to put up In
excesB of his shortage.
The committee on Poor House
j and Couuty Farm will defer their
I report until the "October term.
We desire to express our ap
preciation for the assistance and
(courtesies extended to us during
'this term by His Honor Judge

A. E. PADGETT,
[Report of Committee on County j
Edgefield, S C. July 25th, 1906.
Po the Grand Jury of Edgefield
At the August Term of Court, 1906:
The Special Committee appoint
ed at the March, term of Court by
you to examine the booka and ac
counts of county officers, began its
work on July 12th and worked
eight days examining the book?
and accounts of following officers:
Master, Judge of Probate,County
Superintendent of EducdtioD, Clerk
of Court, Sheriff, Auditor, Supervi
sor and Treasurer.
From the books of Master's office
we found that he had on hand trust
funds aggregating $1619.21, and it
was ascertained that this offic? r
had this amount to his credit in
banks as Master.
Tho accounts of the Judge of
Probate's office showed that he lum
trust funds aggregating $124179,
while his balances in banks footed
up $ 1254.80, the difference being an
outstanding check for $13 Ol, mak
ing rn exact balance.
The books of Couuty Superinten
dent of Education showed (hut he
bad approved school warrants for
scholastic year ending July 1st,
1906, amounting to $18,080 21 and
tbtl there was an unexpended bal-|
ance ot cash and 1905 06 apu'-'ttiou
ment totaling $1358.16 still to thc
credit ot the various districts in the
county. The hooks lu this office
showed that this officer and tb*
trustees in the districts throughout
the couuty were disbursing the
school fund with conservati, n ami
good judgment, and the books abd
vouchers were in good shape.
In the Sh? . iffs. office we found no
funds belonging to the county, the
deputies having tax executions for
collection not hiving made their
returns. All books seemed prop
erly kept and the office furniture
had been served with a new dress
ing of pain ',.
From the office of Clerk of Cou
we found that fines had been co -i
lected amounting to $250.00, and
.icenses to amount of $27.50, all...
which had been.paid ove* to Coun
ty Treasurer. I
Our attention was called to the
fact, by the Clerk of Court, that |
the recommendation of the Grand
Jury of 1905 in reference to the ne
cessity of having a hew index pre
I pated for Abstracts of Judgmeut
and for deeds of Conveyance from
1839 to 1369 had .iot yet been car-1
I ried out. We recommend that the
present Clerk of Court have this
work done and that the Supervisor
issue his warrant in payment for
he work when completed. We be-j
Iieve that the present Clerk of I
Court will have the work neatly
and accurately executed in the
best form. The records in this
office seemed, witt\ the exceptions
named above, iu good shape, and
we noticed that the clerk is intro
ducing the best up-to-date record
From an examination of tb.3 Su
pervisor's office we found that the
books and accounts are in good
form and that the accounts render
ed in this office have been properly
entered and filed, evidencing a gen
eral improvement. We recom
mend that a record book be opened
in this office giving a complete
record of all notes issued by the
County Commissioners. It is now
customary for them to borrow
money, and they sometimes issue
notes for machinery and slock, and
a record of these should be kept
separate from other claims show
ing the maturity of such notes,
and in order that the amount of
such indebtedness can be ascertain
ed at any time belore maturity ol
the notes. We found that this
office has approved J id paid claims
for year 1906 amounting to $11,242 69
and that it has bo/rowed from
banks money aggreg : ting $13,000.00
These claims cover the expenses ol
the county for the six mouths end
ing July 1st, 1906. The tax levy on
property for this year will raise
about $18,000.00, and the commuta
tion tax will be added to this, ll
assessed at $1.00 will raise about
$3200.00, if at $2.00 it will raise

A Statement From Ex-Treasurer
C. M. Williams.
Mr. Editor:-As the report of
the Grand Jury will appear in
your paper thia week aud a part
of it may be misleading to many
people who do no'tknow ihe actual
facts regarding tine shortage in the
Treasurer's office, I deem it but
justice to myself to make the fol
lowing statements as to facts iii
lu ihe report of the Grand Jury
some people will get the idea that
no one ie short but myself. The
facts are that the present Treasur
er was agaiu found short on the
transactions of this year $1,010 00
His friends put up the money and
no mentiou was made of the short
age in the report of the Grand
If I had a milliou dollars at my
command I would not yet put up
one cent on the amount of short
age claimed against me. For the
reason that I have never been
asked to help in any of the if -
vet-tigations in the Treasurer's
office, except by the Grand Jury
Committee for 1905. Af. the re
quest of tbs Grand Jury commit
tee for 1905 I came to Edgefield
to try to give them possession of
my calculations and settlement
made when I left the Treasurer's
office. I told the committee that I
had left all ray settlement papeie
in the hands of the present Treas
urer. He said that he could not
find the papers aud knew nothing
about them. For that reason the
Grand Jury Committee did not
pasB on my settlement iii 1905,
and has never yet pus-sed ou it.
Yet presentment is made this year
based on investigations made by
other parties, who were interested,
and not on findings Jof their own
I have been told that Dr. Patti
son is showiug to the people a let
ter written by Comptroller Jonee
stating that shortly after Dr. Pat
tison weut iuto office he, Jones,
received letters saying that some
thing was wrong in the office, and
asking Jones to como over and
straighten out the matter. The
Auditor and thepreseut Treasui
er have also stated on the stump
at Red Hill that they were the
first ones to find out the shortage
in the Treasurer's office before auy
such thing was found by auy
Grand Jury Committee, and that
they reported it at once to the
Comptroller by letters. Now, Mr.
Editor, I am prepared to show
?hat nothing was ever wrrtteu or
telegraphed to the Comptroller's
jfficc about this matter until on
rhe 8th of August after the matter
dad been found by the Grand Jury
Jommittee in July and called to
the attention of both the Treasur
er and Auditor. 1 have certified
copies of all letters and telegrams
.vritteu by the Auditor and Treas
irer to the Comptroller, and am
prepared to prove that no mention
?vas ever made by them until Au
gust 8th, 1905, and Iben it was uni
dated that there was any short
go, aud I am prep ired to further
.rove that the Comptroller w?ie
lever askpd to catan over to Edge
iold a tit il September 18th, 1905.
vhich was about ihe time th
iraud Jury Committee were t<
.jake up I heir final report on I h ic
natter for the Oalub r c jurt.
The f.cts ar-* that t bi * short a#
.vas found oy the Grar.d Jury Com
mittee in July 1905, and would
have* been reported tb ibo Au
aust-Court 1905, but ?)r. Pattison
liskod^the Grand Jury to give bim
more time, which they did. So,
Mr. Editor, tbe claims made by
thete men are to say the leaet not
Dr. Pattison is claiming that he
has put up money for my shortage.
He hae never intentionally doue
any such thing. After bping sus
pended by the Governor on the
report of the Comptroller, hf was
required to put up the amount of
$4187.73. This was factly the
amount the Comptroller's account
ant bad found him short. See re
port of Comptroller to General
Assembly 1905, part II, page 253.
In this report it was claimed that
I wasshort $1557.12 and that Dr
Paitieou was sh Vrt $4187.73. He
was required to put up $4187.73
just what the Comptroller had
found him short, not one cent on
what it wis claimed I was short.
11?. had to do this in order to be
reinstated. The public ought to
1-now that he would not be re
quired to put up anything olaimed
N >w. Mr, Editor, I lia ve not
been treated fairly iu this matter.
My papers left iu the office show
ing what settlement I had made
were not forthcoming until Jbe
first part of this year, 12 months
after I had left the * flice, in the
noan time investigations had been
going on for several months. If 1
am justly due one single dollar,
I am, after proper investigation in
which I am present oi repn S'uted,
ready to sacrifice every piece ol
property I have to pay the 6ame
I do not care for any newspaper
controversy over this matter, I
felt that I was due it to myself
aud to my friends to --stale these
facts. I ara prepared to prove
everything I havo stated herein.
