Three cheers for Hon. John E.

proud pf him.
It hai been announced that

Wbeneverthere are political con
tests anywhere . in the state in
which Edgefield men are involved,
you can bet your boots that Edge

those who have an abiding mter
egtiin the welfare of the old Ship
of State to note that there has
bean a general raising of the
standard among those who are. to
assemble in Columbia in January
to make the laws under which we
shall live. The counties in which
the standard has not been raised
are exceptions, and not the rule.
other counties and names could |
likewise be mentioned.
The Advertiser does not doubt
for a moment that Hon. John E.
Swearingen will make good at the
head of the educational depart
ment of South Carolina, and
there are 61,287 other persons in
the state, of the same opinion.
The loss of sight will only handi
cap him in performing with his
own hands the , clerical work of
the office, and this, in fact, is al
ways done by clerks instead of by
the State Superintendent of Edu
Through, nat aral endowments
of heart and . mind, through
training at college and through
experience of-nine years in the
school room, Mr. Swearingen is
eminently fitted to plan and di
rect* the educational system of
the state, fhe Hon. John J. Mc
Mahan, a prominent attorney of
Columbia, who formerly filled the
office of State Superintendent of
Education for four years with very
distinguished ability, published
an-article in the daily papers just
i prior to the election in the inter
eat of Mr. Swearingen's candida
cy. After writing of Mr. Swearin
gen's ' phenomenal achievements
while a student at 'fhe South Caro
lina college, Mr. McMahan had
the following to say in the closing
paragraph of the article:
"It cannot therefore, be feared
that Mr. Swearingen's blindness
will prevent his measuring up to
the fullest requirements of the
office of State- Superintendent of
Education. This is an office, not
of mechanical routine, not of
physical inspection cf details of
work, (as is largely th? office of
superintendent of a school or even
ol a county.) If redu ed to this,
it is a farce. It should be an office
of inspiration aud leadership
through moral and intellectual
power, rare personality. As com
pared with such a force, always
needed to blazon the outlines of
progress, eyesight is of insignifi
cant value. Eye-J are common aud
cheap. Cut off from much that
ers away thought and life,

ability the ? constructive

If the white-voters of South
Carolina cast over 110,000 ballots
in the primary, that number, or
mors,should be cast in the general
election in November.
It is difficult for Georgia to tell
where she is at politically. The
Democrats, Republicans, Prohibi
tionists, Populists, and the In
dependence party are all at work
iu our sister state.
Edgefield's daughter, Saluda,
j polls more votes than the old
! mother county. Saluda's vote iu
the last primary is placed at
2,052, which is 300 more than
Edgefield's vote in the first pri
After all expenses of the cam
paign- were paid, Oraugeburg's
Democratic executive committee
contributed $100 from the.amouut
left in the treasury to the. Bryan
aud Kern fund. We do uot know
what balance Edgefield's execu
tive committee had left after pay
ing a'.l expenses of the campaign,
but it would have been a very
graceful act could they have made
a contribution to the national
fund as did Orangeburg.
Edgefield Agricultural Club Or
ganized Under Favorable
In response to the call of Gen.
M. C. Butler twenty-five or thirty
farmers and business men met in
the court house ou. Saturday for
the purpose of organizing an
agricultural club. Gen. Butler
was, on motion of B. E. Nich
olson, elected temporary chairman
and Mr^ L. Wigfall Chealham
secretary. Gen. Butler decliuedto
accept the presidency of the club,
aud Mr. James R. Camelon was
elected president, Mr. Cheatham
being permanent secretary.
Dr. WV E. Mealing, seer? tary
and treasurer of the associated
farmers clubs of the Savanuah
valley, waB present by invitation,
and was called upon to give an
outliue of the work of the Schultz
Hill club and theother clubs that
compose the association. He spoke
of the benefit derived from the
experiments that had beeu made
by the members and uf the ad van
tages; derived from the social
feature. At the regular .mouthly
meetings topics of vital interest
to the farmers are discussed from
a practical standpoint. Dr. Meal
ing also referred to the friendly
rivalry that existed among the
clubs, arising from the exhibits
at the Georgia-Carolina Fair. Ile
urged the newly formed Edgefield
club to compete for the grand
prize of $100 in cash to be award
ed to the club having the best ex
hibit of agricultural products at
the Georgia-Carolina fair to be
held during the week beginning
November 2nd. The Georgia-Caro

$100 toward defraying the expen

agricultural club, conducted along
the lines of those of the Sa

be of incalculable benefit to the
farmers of this yioinity. Give

L. W. Cheatham, and assist in
making the club a success.
By a unanimous vote the thanks
of the club were extended to Dr

Last Monday night the worst
typhoon that has been known out
here tore part of the roof off the
hospital building, throwing some
of the debris through the floor of
the second story and onto my bed
and in my face as I lay sick in the
men's ward on the first floor. It
did other damage to this splendid
new building and wrecked many
houses and sunk many boats in
and "near Hong Kong, causing the
death of many hundreds if not
thousands. A similar one here
two years ago is supposed to have
killed two thousand people. This
time we had telegraphic warning,
which saved thousands of lives.
In the former one I was ou a
river boat, about a hundred miles
from here aud had to remain on
the boat for twenty-four hours be
fore the boat would dare to go on.
The boat itself was injured some
what. Episcopal Bishop Hoare, as
you may remember,_was also on a
missionary journey near Houg
Kong at the time and his boat was
capsized and his body never re
covered. So you see what kind of
storms wo have out here.
A few miles from Hong Kong,
which, as you know, is an island
in the Pacific, is another islaud
called Cheuug Chow. On that
several missionaries are resting
during the hottest weather.- Some
of their homes were wrecked

Statement From Mr, E. . S. John
Mr. Editor: Please allow epace
in y?ur paper thia w^k for me to
irjatlre statement relative to state
ment m ade by Mr. W. VV Adams
calliug iuto question my veracity.
I made aliidavit in regard to
i.be weighing ot 25 bales of cotton
?old by J fl Roel to W VV Adams
in the spring of 1905, in which I
stated that 1 had settled, as 1
thought, /'the loss in weight on
this lot of cotton satisfactorily
with Mr. W W Adams. This affi
davit waa posted at Edgefield
about 1 o'clock on September Stb,
190?. Under my affidavit Mr. W
VV Adams wrote the following:
"if Johnson collected any money
from Keel" ho did so without au
thority from me, and has not paid
me one cent." This raises the
question of veracity between Mr.
Adams aud myself. The question
ie, who told the truth? Did I not
tell it? Is Mr. Adams tbe only
man who can tell the truth? Why
did I have to get authority from
him to collect money from Reel.
Tf I had paid over money to
Adams, which be bad numerous
timrg demanded of me on account
of the lot of cotton, 25 b<tles, sold
to him by Reel, wljy did I bave to
set authority from him to collect
this money from R el? ^He save
rbat I have not paid bim one
cent. I will give to the-public
verbatim his receipt sign-id by
him and written out entirely in
his handwriting aud then h.t. the
public judge, and I will also stttte
that Mr. J 'Ii -Reel paid over to
me this amonut of money, after
I had paid it lo Adams. Here is
Adams receipt to me which I eau

"Received of E S. Johu.?G4K4-and
3-100 dol?ate for the ka A of 53
pounds of cotton as above." This
