Wednesday, July 26.
Warrant Issued and Served.
Actuated by the belief that the law
should be allowed to take its course
in such cases, Miss Evelyn Edmunds,
a daughter cf Mr. A. A. Edmunds,
appeared before Magistrate J. B.
Tompkins Saturday and had a war
rant issued for Sheriff W. R. Swear
ingen, charging him with assault up
on, her father on Saturday, July 15,
?with intent to kill. The warrant was
issued end served by Judge Tomp
3dns, who fixed the bond at the sum
of $500 for Mr. Swearingen's eppear
ance at the October term of court
of general sessions.
Club Books Closed.
The time fixed in the rules of the
party for the enrollment of voters
for the primary election closed last
night, the last Tuesday in July. Just
what the enrollment has been in the
county is purely a matter of conjec
ture at this time. Possibly the rela
tive number of the two clubs here at
Edgefield, 1920 vote in the primary
compared with the 1922 enrollment,
may serve jto give some idea as to the
enrollment in the county. In the pri
mary of 1920 Edgefield Club No. 1
cast 179 votes and the enrollment
this year is 325. The number of votes
- cast in Edgefield Club No. 2 in 1920
was 169 and the enrollment this year
is 255, the totals of the two clubs be
ing 348 two years ago against an en
rollment this year of 580, which is
about 70 per cent more, but of course
not all who registered will vote.
Transferred to Penitentiary
The negro woman, Annie Quiller,
about whom the unfortunate diffi
culty between Sheriff W. R. Swear
ingen and County Supervisor A. A.
Edmunds occurred about ten days
ago, and which would have been re
ported in The Advertiser last week
had not the editor been sick in bed,
will be transferred from the jail to
the penitentiary today. The woman
was convicted of manslaughter at
the March term of court and was sen
tenced to a term of two years in the
penitentiary or for a like period in
the county jail. Since March she has
been in jail and her board has been
costing the county about $16 per
month. Supervisor desired to save
the county this expense is why he
contended that she be transferred to
the penitentiary. The attorney gen
eral, the superintendent of the peni
tentiary and the county attorney
have advised that the matter should
be decided by the supervisor, and
acting upon this advice Mr. Edmunds
will have her sent to Columbia today.
Must Decline to Publish.
The Advertiser has received this
week for publication a well written
article urging the election of a cer
tain one of the five candidates for
the house of representatives. It is
-contrary to the policy of The Adver
tiser to permit a correspondent to
.either favorably present or adverse
ly criticize any candidate for office.
We believe in equal rights to all can
didates and special privileges to
none. Therefore we have declined to
?publish the article in the news col
umns. It can only appear in The Ad
vertiser as a political advertisement
and the other candidates then would
have the same privilege, none of them
ieing placed at a disadvantage. The
candidate whose cause was espoused
in the article is a good man, being
highly esteemed by the people who
know him, but we can not permit any
-candidate to be singled out and
'"boosted." We rather admire the loy
alty and enthusiasm of our corres
pondent for his friend, but must de
cline to depart from our policy of
twenty years' standing.

McCormick, July 21.-The hand
some residence of Mrs. M. L. Carroll
here was destroyed by fire early this
morning. The origin of the fire is un
knows, but ome of the occupants of
the home heard some one in the kitch
en about one o'clock z 1 when the
fire was first discover?, out one
hour later the kitchen v n flames.
At the time of the ( arroll
had visiting her, her u ,? Mrs.
Paul Thompson, of Greeaviut, Tex
as, and Mrs. W. W. Adams, of Edge
field, and her son, Floyd Carroll of
Augusta. The residence was a large
two story home, which was built just
20 years -ago of very good lumber
and the residence has been used for
some years as a boarding house, be
ing located just one block from the
depot and just across the street from
I the People's Bank which was practi
cally destroyed by fire two months
McCormick is without waterworks
and had there been water the build
ing could easily have been saved af
ter the fire was discovered, but the
large number of people who respond
ed to the alarm could do nothing
more than remove a few goods and
sit with folded hands and see the
building" go up in flames. The loss is
?estimated to be approximately $30,
000, which is only partially covered
I by insurance.
