The announcement that an exami- j
nation will be held for the postmas- ^
tership .at Edgefield is causing much ^
speculation as to whose pole will be ,
long enough to reach this political
plum. Owing to the change of admin
istration in Washington, the filling ?
of postoffices seems to be largely a i
matter of politics. Mr. C. M. Melli- 1
champ, the present postmaster, has I
many friends, as was indicated by the i
recent largely signed petition, who I
hope that he will be re-appointed. He i
has labored faithfully to give good J
and satisfactory service to the pa- j
trons of the office. . t
