To the Voters of Anderson County.
For reasons not fully existing when I
icceptod tho nomination, I fool it my duty
to withdraw from the canvass for a seat
lu tho Hou8eof Representativos. To my
many friends I regret to mako this an
nouncement, and hone atsome future lima
JO Hcrvo them, should a majority of my
"oilow-cilizuns desiro it. lu accepting tho
ionization I desired only to represent
mob interests ns I had in common with
my countrymen. These interests oun
?rnee tho taxation of property and the
.".location of our children. It takes more
.han half our Stato tuxes to pay tho in
terest on our public dobt. To rod ncc this
interest is of paramount importance in
jrdor to reduco taxes. To this end it
will require wholesome legislation in the
ulministrotiou of tho government. This
would give confidence to capitalists, and
mable us to reduce the interest on tho
lebt from six LO, perhaps, four per cont,
i saving of one-third of the taxes for thia
>bject. A large portion of this debt ma
uros in 1888, and tho rcmaiuder in 1893,
ind to roplaco this debt at a low rato of
nterost should engage our Loglslaturo In
Any increase of tho public debt, or
ivcakoniug the rasources of tho State,
.rould defeat, in & measure, the desired
inject. This will have to ho met at tho
?ext session of tho General Assembly,
?partanhurg, und aoven other Counties,
rave involved themselves largely in
Minded debts to build railroads, and noW
lesiro tho State to como to their old to
oiiovo thom from thoir embarra ?suienta.
The movement is being led in Spartan -
nirg, and when onco begun will bo taken
ip by all.
Onco establish the precedent of the
itnte assuming, either directly or indi
ectly, the burden of these debts, i m pos -
d as thoy are hy the reckless voting of
axes for railroad purposes, we may
lever hope to reduce the present rate of ]
ntorest, and the present rate of taxation.
I Constitutional Amendment is now on
he way to prevent the Counties from
reating any debt oxeoeding olght por
eut of Its taxable property-. If ii is
irrong to exceed olght per cont, it is
rrong to exceed five. This proposition
or the State to assume tho County debts,
nd all kindred measures, should be met
lythe Legislature with firmness, so as | |
a plant the credit of the Stato on a foot
ag with that of our sister Stato of Coor
ia, and place our debt at four per cent,
3 Georgia has. Then, and not before,
lay we begin to look for relief from high
ixoH, which is demanded from all quar
3rs of the State.
Tho Stato having already taken its
tann on education, bhe will not likely
ake any step backward. I thought that
ire might well have dispensed with tho
iitadel Academy, leaving those who
/ere not satisfied with higher education
t tho University to pay their own tuition
t King's Mountain Military, or such
ther like schools as they de??rod. The 11
lability of our government, tho preser
ation of our Institutions, and tho hap
lincas of our people depending upon the
ntelligonce of i La citizens, it seems to mo
mt right that thoso of its citizens who
re rich In this world's goods, should
ontribute of their means to oducato the
hildren of thc Stato, as a small return
br the rights of personal security, perso
lal liberty, and private property guaran
ced to them by tho laws. My vi ow:; on
his subject having been expressed in
irivate, I am requested to furnish them
br publication, which I do with dlffl
lence, as I seldom I in poso my views on
be public by expressing them in print,
["boy are submitted now only because of
ny withdrawal from the cauvaas, and the

if these statements are entirely without a
badow of truth to sustain them, and I am
onfldent that the people of Anderson

AXOTHKB RJCSCUE rao? DEATH.-In 1631
while sewing on a machine, my wife was
taken with a severe paiu in her side, which
was soon followed by hemorrhages from
ber lungs, severe cough, fever, and she
could neither eat or sleep, and in a few
weeks she was reduced to a living skeleton,
lier stomach refused to retain any food, and
the physician thought ono of her lungs was
entirely gone. At a final consultation of
two physicians her case was pronounced
hopeless. I tried Brewer's Lung Restorer
by advice of one of the physicians, and she
began to improve after tue third dose. She
continued the medicine, and is now in ex
cellent health, and is better than she has
been in several years. 1 belicvo Brewer's
Lung Restorer saved her lifo.
