Assistant Attorney General U. X.
Gunter, Jr., will be a candidate for
Attorney General. He is well qualified
to fill the position and his connection
with the office makes him
thoroughly familiar with his duties
He has been for several years Secre
fcary of the Democratic executive j
Committee, and consequently is in
close touch with the people of the
State. It is reported that Speaker
Stevenson will be a candidate also,
but this cannot be confirmed.
It is not known whether Comptroller
General Derham will be a candidate
again or not. Even if he is, ,
there are indefinite reports about .
several gentlemen throughout the
the State, who fill the poeition of (
county Auditor or Treasurer, who
will be candidates. But no definite (
announcements have been made.
Treasurer JenniDgs will again be a
candidate, and is not known whether
bo will have opposition.
General Floyd is thinking of running
for Congress in the Fifth district.
In case he does, it is said that
Colonel Frost, Mr. G. Douglass
Rouse of Charleston and perhaps
others will be candidates. It may
be that General Watts may take another
flyer at the job. (
So, from this it will be seen that j
there will be a considerable shaking
up at the State house next year if 1
present plans are carried out.

There was an unusual caller at the
executive office yesterday morniDg.
The caller was a very respectable
looking colored woman, and she was
accompanied by her mother. She
wanted to ask the Governor to get
her three-year-old child from her
brutal husband who lives in Lexington.
She stated that he had for the
fifth time recently beat her with a

come back to her mother. He bad !

Judge W. C. Benet, recently in the

to the grand jury on the finding j
of no bills in dispensary cases.
The remarks were occasioned by j
the handing of several indictment J

Judge Benet reminded the jury that
in all the other indictments given
the cases were thrown out, adding :
that the witnesses in the former
cases were the same as in the present

West Indian Exposition by the South
Carolina commission, created by act
of the laBt General Assembly.
I am dow ready to begin the work
of collecting the county exhibit?, and
aek your most earnest aid in this undertaking,
for it is obligatory upon
us to have this State's resources fully
exhibited because this is "The South
Carolina Exposition" and by its success
or by its failure will we be judged
by the world.
Please permit me to urge that
you personally begin now to solicit
specimens for your county exhibit, for
the time is passing for some itemp,
especially sheaf grain. The only
expense a county will incur in mak
ing an exhibit is the collecting and
loading into a car, or cars, and the
arranging of the exhibit in the Palace
I will meet with your board between
now and the first of August to
give you all the aid and information
you may need. Can I count on your
support? Very truly yours,

i article must say that it certainly is i
very annoying to the citizens of <
Brookland and vicinity to be so mis- ,
erably misrepresented in tbis so
| called smallpox epidemic. We con- j
j fe83 that when the disease first api
peared in the form of mild chicken- ,
pox the board of health perhaps did ]
not take steps at once that probably
they should have. But soon as the
disease got a little more severe, and
i the state board of beaith was notified
of the fact, they sent beaith
officers to investigate, and they pronounced
the disease smallpox, and 1
left instructions to stamp the disease
out. The local board of beaith and
j the local physicians took up said ini
structions and carried them out as
best they could, in which I think j
they have been very successful, as it v
appears that at the time the health ^
; officera were here, about si? or seven
weeks ago, there were about seventyj
five or eighty cases in the t)wn and
a few outside the incorporation. ^
| Since that time and during this f
! last excitement of the last week, the
