Dear Sir: The undersigned con

October 9th, 1874.
Gentls: Tour letter of this date
informing mxe that I had been -'uuani
tuously chosea by the convention or
a:ized at Newberry C. H , as the
andidate for Congress for the Third
Congressional D)istriet" was delivered
to me this day and I auswer at once.
The first e:notion is that of grati
tude for the confidence i:nplied in the
o:iuation, but along with that feel
ingz comes a deco sense of the respon:
sibility imposed' an:d of nmy inability
to fulfil the just expectations of the
entlemen of the convention. I feel
hat after all my efforts,sI may fail in
being the true exponent. and represeu
tative of the large and honorable body
politie which put moe forward. A seat
in xaCong~ress is always ant imnportant
ofhee, but at this time in the peculiar
condition of the State it is immnensely
imnportant to all .honest conservative
ctiaeus, who are struggling for a vaie
in r ublie affairs with a view to reform
the'administ rationt of Government. I
Idid net seek the nomnination, having
beeni so lone uneo)nnected with public
affairs-I had lost all taste for politics
and thought that~ I wa.s not fitted to
m iake a political campaign as conaductedz
n th etime's no;r to discharge~ satis
acoiythe delicace duties of the high
office. 'Tihe g.tuventiont thought otheCr
wise, and, without solicitation, has put
me in noinafltiont. I alccep't. the call
as a commnand and wi!! e' deavor~ to do
my duty. It can hardly be necessary
for me to make a personal canvass of
(the wh1le Congressional District. I
Ihave lived here all my life and I sup
pose every voter, either fro:n personal
knowldge or informxatin, knows who
I -m ands what are my antecedents.
They knIow that I am a mnoderate conz
servatice c,tizen. and ever since the
war in favor of peace and fraternity
between the seedons and justice and
idliness between the races.
Permnit mie, at the outset, to make
IonC suggecstion. In the conastituiency
to wiich appeal is made there are in
flammabj.l 'e elemxents, composed as it is
of two racecs nearly equal in nu.:ber.
IThese classes have a comimon interest
n the resunlt and have equal rights at
te vols If eieeted, I feel thamt I shall
be herepesetatveof' both. From
na:tural te Q.p:r:IiienIt, as well as from ai
sense of duty. I am opposed to thle least
violence or injustice, and I accept th1e
nomnaton and undertake to makze the
canvass with the earnest hope that we
are t.i have a fair ceetion, and that
every manti shall be allowed to east his
vote~for the candidate of his choice
wihout fear or favor and with perfect
impn'ity. If injustice is done let it
at be on our part. We thiuk we hav'e
merits upou which to rest and upon
those alone do we rely,. This is our
deteriation and we pledge oursel les
to i. Wehope our o:ppon)ents will be

wr anything wh-ch will hell) to inflame

i parsuing that palicy has done more

f a communication which ai)peared
uder the signature of "Gomos" in the
'rogrcssive Ayc, as best helps it at this
mneture, and straightway makes capital
f it, and says that-according to
Gomos"--"the planter can once more
ring out his 'hlacksnake whip,' and

eyed no such meaning, but was simply
xtreme in recommending the policy of
browing out of employment one-third

node of getting rid of the present dis

that "if I live till next planting time
I will prut in more corn, make that the

that give all the attention which can

HOMICIDE IN THE DRY CREZK SE(

from a mill. The young men werei

the two yournger Snipes men an
Wadle Lott of one part, and Fran
Simons of the other. Sinmous quitte
the part y after a little while, and gain
ahead, soon returned, with a brothe.
named Shields Simonms. Hereupot

Wade Lott shot Frank Simons and th
