Mass Meeting in Court House.
Pursuant to the call, a large num
ber of citizens met in the court house
Saturday afternoon to consider mat
ters pertaining to the Dixie Highway.
The meeeting was presided over by
Supervisor R. N. Broadwater. Upon
motion of Hon. B. E. Nicholson it
simultaneously agreed that a Coun
ty Dixie Highway Council be select- '
ed which will be done as soon as the
necessary instructions are received.
The matter of locating the High
way from Edgefield to Greenwood,
whether by way of Pleasant Lane or
by way of Dr. J. H. Self's, was fully
and freely discussed. Supervisor
Broadwater stated that he desires to
be perfectly fair to all parties at in

After giving the matter serious
consideration, I have decided to
yield to the solicitations of a num

of represefitatives and have decided
to serve in that capacity, if chosen
by the people of the county. Owing
to the great demands upon my time,
I will probably be unable to make
a thorough canvass of- the county,
but it will afford me pleasure to

A Ringing Call for AH Patriots
to Support Tillman.
.Editor The Augusta Chronicle:
Governor Manning's letter to Sen
ator Tillman, printed in the Chroni
cle a few days back, giving his rea
sons for urging Congressman Lever
to get in the race for the United
States Senate against Senator Till
man. Now, in my judgment, his rea
sons are not sufficient to convince
'the people of South Carolina that it
?was altogether necessary for Con
gressman Lever to have done so. I
I do not know Governor Manning's
motives-he may have been perfect
ly honest in his intentions to do
some good-but, nevertheless, it was
a grave mistake for him to have done
so in this day and time. We need no
divisions in our ranks at a time
The war of liberty and freedom is
ours and it is necessary that all of us
stand firmly together if this fight is
to be won; and win we must, at all
, I believe that Governor Manning
and Congressman Lever will have a
hard job in getting the people of this
state to believe that it was the prop
er thing for Congressman Lever to
?do at this time.
One of Governor Manning's reas
ons for urging Congressman Lever to
enter the race was that he was fear
ful of Tillman being able to defeat
Blease for the United States senate,
Tillman's age barring him from
stumping the state in his own interest
Now, I believe that this is another
grave mistake for Governor Manning
to make. This race for the senate at
this time, according io my views, .is
a question of loyalty or disloyalty
to our President and to our country.
In my estimation any man who
thinks or says that Tillman could not
defeat Blease in this race for the
senate casts a reflection upon every
loyal man in this state and should at
once make them an apology. No, sir,
never! I have an abiding faith in the
people of South Carolina doing the
right thing at the right time, and that
is to elect Ben Tillman to the United
This is no time for petty politics.
Let us all remember that the United
States is now fighting one of the most
bitter and righteous wars ever fought
by any nation on earth and our boys
"over there" shedding their life's^
blood every day that we may gain
victory. They are standing under the
folds of Old Glory, pleading only
that our government and people
stand back of them until the victory
Now I say, friends, there is no bet
ter way to do so than to elect Tillman
to the senate to succeed himself. He
has been tried and not found want
ing. He has been faithful to our state
and by all means let us send bim
Then, boys, listen! The bugle call
is being sounded. It is coming from
South Carolina's old Confederate
Veterans. They are writing from
Georgia-from as far as Texas and
from the mountains of South Caro
lina-asking the people to reelect
Tillman. "Give us Tillman! Send Till
man back to the senate!" That is
Now what are you, their sons and
grandsons, going to do about it? No,
for surely you are going to gratify
these brave old heroes' desire and
send Tillman back to the United
The writer is somewhat of an old
Confederate and I love my state
and nation better than I love any
man or set of men. Aye, better than
I love my own life, for I stand ready
at all times to lay it on the altar of
my country. And I wish to say right
now that I have never seen the day
since Tillman went into the United
States senate that I could not seek
my humble bed at night and calmly
lay my head upon my pillow and rest
feeling confident that South Caroli
na's interests were safe in his hands.
And I believe it will ever be so just
as long as he is there.
One of the most powerful and
(most convincing articles that I have
seen stating why Lever should not
enter the race for the senate at this
time was written by thc editor of the
Augusta Chronicle a month or so
back. I consider it unanswerable. By
all means secure it and read it.
Respectfully yours for the interest
of our common country and to lick

other day and I have seen DeLoach
again. He says he likes the Navy fine.
We were issued mosquito nets the
other day as the mosquitoes were
about to carry us on a furlough.
There are four boys to a tent, and
we have three druggists counting my
self, one from Georgia and the others
from South Carolina. We only have
eight druggists in our bunch, so we
all lined up and made some kodak
pictures the other day.
1 only get liberty now on Satur
days and Sundays from one in the
afternoon to one that night and I
always go to church on Sunday night
as it is my only chance. At first
things were dull but I have met lots
of girls and things are more interest
ing now. The boys that are not in
uniform are out of luck here.
There arc some funny names in
the Navy. We never say going to
meals. It is always going to "chew",
and we never say "going on leave,"
but "going ashore." I am liking the
Navy better every day and if I ever
get home again and the cook quits,
or the house-maid 1. ?ves, you will
not have any trouble for I can do
anything now and I believe I could
do housekeeping as well as a lady.
I have been vaccinated and have ' '
had all three doses of the typhoid se

I am feeling fine.
We have five more weeks of school

hoping" I will get home once more
before I go. They are sending men j '
