The Spartan burg lawyer who re

Hon. George Bell Tirnmerman

Solicitor Tirnmerman has in every
sense measured up to the expec

His Money Talked.
The Advertiser can now under
stand why Governor-elect Brown
did not utter a word publicly dur
ing the recent Georgia campaign
bis money talked for him. Au

Brown's campaign expenses at

Mayor Rhett Enters Race.
In this issue will be found the
formal announcement of Mayor
R. Goodwin Rhott as a candidate
for the ?Dited States senate. Al
though a man of large business
interests, Mr. Rhett has devoted
much of his time to the study of
the public issues that so vitally
affect the people. He is a lawyer
by profession, also the president
of a large bank and bas twice
beep elected Mayor of Charleston,
being elected the last time with
out opposition. Besides possessing
very decided depth and breadth
of mind, Mr. Rhett is eminently a
business man of sound judgment.
Should Buy on Local Market.
The Advertiser has never been
able to understand jusc why mills
frequently supply their needs for
raw material by shipping cotton
from a distance, instead of pur
chasing on the local market di
rect from the men who produce
While the writer was iu conver
sation with a prominent cotton
factor in Charleston last week, the
latter, incidentally, spoke of one
or two mills in the Piedmont sec
tion that had comparatively re
cently shipped cotton from Char
leston. It is poseible, indeed
probable, that this same cotton
was grown- in the upper part of
the state. The freight was paid to
Charleston by the producer or by
those who purchased it from the
producer, aud now the mills ip
the upper puii of thu tUte are
shipping it back, thus addiug. the
freight both ways to th? price.
We have heard complaints from
the Piedmeut section to the effect
that, liotwitbstanding the great
number of mills in that part of
the state, the prevailing price of
the staple is nearly always lower
than in other sections. Because
of the many thousands of bales of
cotton annually required by these
mills, one would naturally expect
the price to be better than iu sec
tions where very few mille have
been established, but it appears
that such is not tho case. It is al
leged that this condition exists
because-the mills only supply a
portiou of their needs from the
We believe that the iuterests of
both the producers aud mauufac"
turers could be best promoted by
the purchase of raw material first
hand from the farmers wherever
practicable. Let the railroads be
paid for transporting the manu
factured product but why pay
them unnecessarily for hauling
the raw material?
Closing Exercises of Zoar High
School.Prof. T. E. Dorn,
.The closing exercises of Zoar
Sigh School began on Friday
evening, 'the 5th inst.,^ at 7:30
o'clock. The evening's program
consisted of recitation?, playp,
drill?, etc., by the students, last
ing three hours and a half.
On Saturday morning splendid
addresses wore delivered by Hon.
Geo. W. Johnson, of Newberry;
Co!. R. B. Watson- of Ridg*
Spring; Prof. Stile? R. Melli
champ, of Orangeburg; .Tuo. M.
Dauiel. Esq., of Greenville; Mr.
Wideman,- of'Ridge Spriug, and
Rev. Mr. Bodie.
On Saturday evening the ex
ercises were similar to thoee of
tho preceding evening, lasting
each evening from three to four
hours. Music was furnished every
eveniug, and also on Saturday,
by a string?d hind, ac
companied by piauo. It was de
lightful and most charming to the
ear. A barbecued dinucr sud all
the cool drinks hearts could wish
were served. The stage was most
beautifully decorated, being a
perfect picture. The audience was
estimated at from 1.500 to 2,000
Commencement Bermon was
preached at Z.ar church by Dr.
J. C. Roper on Sunday morning
at ll o'clock. There was also a
sermon in the afternoon by? a
young minister from Saluda, C.
H. These sermons were exceed
ingly able aud inspiring. They
have 90 pupils enrolled, with 3
assistant teachers. The commence
ment was considered by many to
be one of the grandeet school en
tertainments ever witnessed in
The principal, Prof. T. E. Dorn,
bas had advantages at the best
colleges and univere'tie6 of
America, besides years of experi
ence as teacher in common, high
schools, and college work. Fur
thermore, his wife, who is bis firs*
assistant teacher, has had good
advantages of common school and
college training, and is of great
assistance to him iu conducting
Prof. Dom's ability as a teach
er is evidenced by the fact that
he has taught the Zoar school
seven years in succession, and
they have employed him for the
eighth year, raisiug his salary
each year. The trustees are now
erecting au eight-room building
which will be equipped with the
most modern and up-to-date ap
pliances. The new building will
be ready by the fall session. The
people of Zoar should feel greatly
indebted to Prof. Dorn for his
able and faithful service in teach
ing and training their children
for the du'ies of life.
There is an impression that the
soil of Zoar will soon be marked
with a college and be the central
point iu that section of the coun
try for the equipment of boys aud
girls. Prof. Dorn will be the
fouuder of said college.
Some of the graduates of Zoar
High School have obtained first
grade certificates and are success
fully engaged in teachiug. Some
are holding high positions as
book keepers. Some have won
scholarships to the university of
the state and others are engaged
in other pursuits.
Now a word for tbb people of
Zoar; They are kind, generous,
energetic and progressive. They
have the best crops I have seen
When it is all summed up aud
our niiuds wander back to the
history of Edgefield county.'we
can but -Bay it was all inherited
from our grand old county, Edge
field. While it is now in Saluda,
yet Edgefield gave birth to that
portion of Saluda and is mother
of all that faleut. While Prof.
Dorn is now a resident of Green
wood, yet he was born and reared
in Edgefield on the bubb'ing
waters of Turkey Creek. When
Greenwood county waa established
it was cut oil' from Edgefield, so
Edgefield claims the talent that
is being developed at Zoar High
school and we wish them God

MAYOR R. GOODWIN RHETT
ANNOUNCED FOR SENATE.
Charleston's Executive Makes
- Formal Statement of Kis Can
didacy-Solicits Support of
Democratic Voters. His De
cision Something of a Sur
Special to Thc State.
Charleston, Juno 10.-Mayor
Rhett announcer, hip candidacy to
night for United States Senator
and wi!! file his pledge to-morrow.
Following a conf?rerez at. his
office at the People's National
bank he gav9 out the following
"To the Democratic voters of
South Carolina: I have deter
mined to be a candidate for
'ULIvou otates senator at.the ap
proaching primary election. I
shall to-morrow file my pledge
with the State Democratic com
mittee as required by the rules
of the parly and will abide by the
rules of the primary electiou. I
respectfully solicit the support of
Ihe Democratic voters of the state.
"R. Goodwin Rhett."
The announcement of the can
didacy of Mayor Rhett will bein
the nature of a Burprise to the
voters of the state, as his nara1)
has not heretofore bean mention
ed in co.mectiou with the office.
He and ex-Gov. Hey ward have
been close business and personal
friends for years and with the de
cision of the latter to forego mak
ing the race on account of his
health, Mayor Rhett decided to
enter the rac?.
Further than the statenr-mt
given above Mayor Rhett said to
night that be had nothing to say
hut that .i) th*? npxt few dave ho
will probably make a statement.
Maj'or Rhett is one of the be*t
known and regarded mwn in the
state and it is admitted that his
candidacy is a strong one. Hy 1?
one of the most, successful busi
ness men in Charleston, having
large financial interests but these
have not interferred with a cloe?
study of public questions and on
these matters he is particularly
w=?ll qualified to discuss and make
the raen for lhe office that be
seeks. He was a delegate at large
to the Democratic natiocal con
vention four years ago.
He entered upou his second ad
ministration as mayor of Char
leston last December, after hav
ing served several terina as an
alderman aud has held othei po
sitions of public trust. Mayor
Rhett bas spoken before comuier
cial organizations in Columbia,
Auderson and other cities in the
iLterest of the slate, where he bas
many strong friends and support
ers. His discussion of financial
and railroad questions have es
pecially impressed bis knowledge
ot matters of tho kind. This was
particularly iu evidence in the
consideration given to bia views
rec?utly on the proposed reform
of currency legislation by govern
ment officials and writers on finan
Mayor Rhett ia a good speaker
and be promises to make a hard
fight for the office that he seeks.
He will endeavor to enlighten the
public on the questions of the day
and will make the race ou the
merit rather than on auy attack
on account of candidates. It is
thought that he will get a good
portion of Heyward's strength
throughout the state.
Many Dead Dogs in Greenwood.
The policemen of the town of
Greenwood are killing all dogs
seen upon the streets Without
being muzzled. A. S. Tompkins,
Esq., was in Greenwood last week
for several days and says h? saw
a wagon load of dead dogs. While
en route to Edgefield, Mr. Tomp
kins stopped over in Augusta for
a night, and a Herald reporter,
hearing him relate his Greenwood
observation, published the follow
ing in tbe Augusta Herald:
"A. S. Tompkins, Esq., a well
known lawyer of Edgefield, pass
ed through the city to-day ou his
way home from Greenwood, where
he has been at court for several
days. He relates a remarkable in
stance of "hydrophobia fright"
which goes to show that ''Little
Old New York" is not the only
town on the map that is afraid of
the terrible disease.
"A few days ago," be said,
"somebody's dog went mad, and
bit more than a score of othpr
dogs in Greenwood before its mad
career was brought to an abrupt
termination. When the nows went
abroad, people grew uneasy, and
several dog-owners voluntarily
killed their pets.
"There ie a city ordinance in
Greenwood that requires police
men to shoot at sight all loose
dogs that wear no muzzle. The
town marshal is game to the core,
and when the 'mad dog scare'
took hold on the people, be re
ceived ordere to rigidly enforce
the law, without fear or favor. .
"Well, the result was what
might have been expected. The
marshal simply loaded up for
dogs, and shot every oue he s:iw
without a muzzle. He didn't stop
to argue, the matter at all. He
slow without respect for persons.
And they hauled out dead dog*
by the wagon load. It was th" first
time r had ever seen so many dead
dogs in oue b?ap. Many owners
of fine dogs remonstrated bu1 it
was no use. Tho war of extermi
nation went on, and now Green
wood is minus several dozMii dogp,
both desirable and undesirable."
