Hon. Geo. D. Tillman's Opinion
of Gen. Gary.
? short ii me ago the Press and
Banner published the remarks of
Senator B. R. Tillma' made in the
Constitutional Convention of 1895
in reference to the part'Q'en. M. W
Gary took in the campaign of 18V6.
Further light is thrown upon this
question by the folio wing' quotati on
from the speech of ?on. Geo. D.
Tillman on taking the chair to pre
side over the mass meeting held at
Edgefield, S. C., on the 20th day of
June 1881. shortly after the death
,of Gen. Gary:
'"But what should preserve Gary's
.memory fresh and i inmortal, in the
hearts of our people, is what he did
for the County and State in 1870
towards throwing efl: the miserable
carpetbag tyranny that then tramp
led us in the dust.
''Until several weeks after the
election, and not until envy . and
jealousy had had time to do their
work, no one ever heard of Gary's ?
right to the palm of being styled
the Rupert of the campaiim called
"Gen. Butler s name was the only
one, sometimes mentioned as being
entitled, to divide the first honor
with him;'and candor compels me
to say, that, in my judgement, he
was the only leader that deserved
to be mentioned at all, in such a
."'Gen. Hampton w|s. enthusias
tically and justly praised -for the
tact.-moderation and wisdom, with
which he .managed affairs before
and especially after the election
but what color or pretext of title
would or coiild Hampton and the
other candidates for the State
offices, have had to their places, but
for the large and unexpected ma
jority of .thirty-three hundred
achieved by Edgetield.
"Many other conspicuous leaders
were deservedly extolled, for the
part they bore, but "Gary's policy
Gary's example, and above all
Gary's astounding majority in
"Edgetield, obtained by your .un
flinching and enthusiastic support, <
decided the contest i;n the State. ]
"Ile had always contended, that a t
straiphtor.t fight would win, and. ?
??S a result, Gary was followed,
? chsiilted, and obeyed, almost like

Boles Mountain Farm.
? A prominent and-ivery attractive
feature of the Pair on Friday was
the . cotton parade, composed of
thirty wagons loaded with 100
bale? of cotton from the farms of
Hon. W. A. Strom. The procession
was headed by a decorated wagon
in which was seated the Limestone
brass band of about twenty-pieces.
Next came Mr. Strom in his buggy,
to which was hitched a beautiful
pair of home-raised colts, only three
years old, each of which was cover
ed with a blanket bearing this in
scription, "The Boles Mountain
Farm." Little Harry, Mr. Strom's
oldest son, drove a little yellow
mule to a small wagon, upon which
was loaded a bale of cotton covered
with white cotton goodi. Besides
being loaded with two to four bales
of cotton, each wagon had from
two to five colored people upon it,
representing the makers of the cot
ton. The .cotton in the parade was
worth something over $7,000 00,
not including the value of the wag
ons, teams and drivers. After driv
ing around the public square and
flown Main street, the Cotton Pa
rade went over to the Fair grounds
and made a circuit of the arena, to
the delight of the hundreds of
?l>eclators. The sight of thirty
teams and 100 bales of cotton with
?bout that number of negroes upon
the wagons, was quite unusual and
very-novel. Late in the afternoon
the cotton was unloaded at the de
pot for shipment to Mr. Strom'?
factors in Augusta.
