JOHN GARY ?V ANS.
fjpartanburg's Candidate for
United States Senate.
Backed by People of All Classes With,
out Regard to Past Factional Af.
filiations the Ex-Governor En
terb the Senatorial Race.
(From The Spartanburg Journal.)
Spartanburg'8 candidate for the
United States senate to succeed John
L. McLaurin is ex-Governor John Gary !
Evans. In a residence of several years
he has established himself in the es
teem and good will of the people oMhis
count}' to such an extent that he Is re
garded with no less aff?clion and inter
est, that would be the case were he a
native born Spartan. His popularity
extends to all classes. Some of his
closest political and personal friends
are to be found among those who were
formerly his strongest opponents.
To know^Governor Evans has been
to appreciate his fine qualities, his
sterling honesty and hlB eminent qual
ifications as a statesman and citizen.
He carried thiB county by largo major
ities for governor and senator, and he
will carry it this year by a much larg
er majority than ever; Indeed, it might
almost be said that ho will receive tho
unanimous democratic vote of the
county, so great Is the local interest m
his candidacy. His personal popular*
Ity extending from Spartanburg County
as a basis, is radiated all over tho
Piedmont section of the state and in
every profession, trade and calling
Governor Evans is looked upon as a
splendid type of a South Carolinian.
His Strength Is With All Classes.
His friendship and aid have ever
been extended to the large agricul
tural interests of the state, and our
large and growing industrial popula
tion has come to regard him as a
staunch and sincere friend. At the
same time Governor Evans has never
been regarded as hostile to capital
and corporations in any sense, and
has many friends and supporters
among those who have large invest
ments in cotton and other manufactur
ing industries. While there can hard
ly be said to be any logic in politics,
Governor Evans is nevertheless the
logical candidate to succeed McLaurin,
by reason of the vigorous and won
derfully prophetic fight he made on
the commercial statesman five years
ago. He then said McLaurin was a
republican, and that gentleman has
himself since proven the charge be
yond a doubt. Governor Evans was
not the only prophet In that Une, how.
ever, but he was the only man who
made a fight on McLaurin tnen who is
now a candidate before the people as
h'.B successor. He evidently knows
a republican when he sees one, and
this !s some assurance, if any were
needed, that his own democracy ts
Has Been Faithful to Every Trust.
Governor Evans' equipment and
Qualifications for the senatorship are
undoubted, and his services to the peo
ple of the state certainly give him a
claim upon their earnest consideration
of his candidacy. He has ever been
faithful to the trust reposed in him by
the democrats of South Carolina, and
retains to the utmost the respect and
confidence of those who know him.
The very fact that he has held the
support of those who were his political
associates in times when there were
sharp Unes drawn between the faction
al affiliations of our people and has
since the effacement of those lines
drawn to himself the good will ana
friendship of those who formerly op
posed him, shows him to be a man
who is steadfast in character and eml- j
nent in. ability. He Is strongest where
he Is best known, and is backed by !
the support of the thickly populated
Piedmont counties and he is sure to
be a formidable factor in the race.
Tillman Hands Off.
. In view of numerous reporta abojxt
this man and that man betas "tin
man's candidate" for thq sear^e. a
statement made by Senator Tillman in
Washington recently may prove of in
terest to those watching South Caro
"There is really no reaaon why I
should mix up In this race," said Sen
ator Tillman, "nor do I intend to take
the slightest part in it one way or tho
other. It is true that before Evans
entered the race there was but one
candidate in the field, Representative
Latimer, who had not at one time op
posed me. For this reason, thinking
to hurt Representative Latimer's
chances for election, the report has
been circulated that I was backing
Latimer. It is untrue to say that 1
am backing any one of the candidates.
Now that Mr. Evans has definitely an*
nounced his candidacy for the senate,
there will be two of my former sup
porters in the race. Another reason
why I am not called upon to take ?
"But it should be remembered that
none of the candidates lu the race ara
running for the senate tfgatnst me.
They are after the Junior senatorship,
and because In the past the other can*
dldates?Mr. Elliott. Mr. HempbiU. Mr.
Henderson and Mr. Johnstons?have

t Al;fe00*n we no?ced the Editor of our
Intatligencer thore, and know that be
noticed all that was going on, we cannot
yet be deterred from saying a word about
Pelzer and lta Fourth qf July.
The entertainment for the masses was
the best the writer ever attendod-that Is.
the best with the least trouble and dis
turbance, and with ?u uniqueness that
would make the shades of Wa?hluKton
Jefferson, end later. Davis and Lee, turn
in their grassy bed* witb jealousy that
they could not attend tho heat of the pa
We have never Eeen snob fireworks,
such an abundance of the genuine ' .bid'
nor saw fireworks, with all legal and*
deadly intents and purposes, do tbe de
stroying vengeanoe which these did at
Pelzer. The way the shara battle terror
ized the Yankees, tbe way their blue
ooats lit out from the h moke and fire of
the gray, and landed, all who did not fall
or enter capture, far, as we supposed, on
the other side of Hull Ron, witb their
faces turned from Manasaas, was an in
spiration to tho Southern young idea who
Is learning to shoot.
We, the women, unlike tbe soldier wo
men of tbe old days who rooked the
cradle or read the blood-stained letters In
tbeir quiet cabins?we. tbe women of
the United States of 1002, took our posi
tion upon the battletield forming a side
batallion on tbe grand stand, ready to
cheer the vlotorp, which, aa in the old
M amtssas, were our own. ready with oar
nrrnn-a pair of them?or our handker
chiefs as tlags of truce or bandages, to
arrive from our resterve position to the
thick of the tight; we were ready bat
were not called upon, and expended our
barbaric force In the Inhuman wish that
tbe light would last longer, or that tho
Johnnies would do it again. We never
even quailed when within a hundred
yards of the cannon'** mouth?to the side
?wbere tbe Rev. Russy, or Mr. Wood
side, or both, or uuder their command,
the monstrous throat of tbe cannon was
stuffed with waste from tbe mills and
Andersou Intelligencers and Greenville
Newses, gun powder and luctfer matches
and was pounded with a ramrod that
looked like a pile driver down to its
larynx, we never even quailed, and
when tbe mammoth outburst shot forth
from that cannon we held our breath Just
a moment, stood with our "arms'' and
under our mullled breath cried?now let
them have it!
We need not tell the Intelllgenorr, for it
was there, how many thousand* were
assembled at Pelzer, nor need wo tell
many around tbe vicinity of Anderson
city, for a number of tbem were there,
and we know personally that they read
tbe Intelligencer, and a number of our
people at Piedmont were there, and
crowds from Greenville and Greenwood
and Relton were there as quickly aa the
looomotivea could putt them in; but we
do tell every bod who oould not come, and
who.won't forgive themselves until next
Fourth, that thousands and thousands
were there, only, we were too busy look
ing at the pretty hats and handsome men
and gallant soldiers and thinking of the
barbecue of everything that stood on four
feet and was good to eat, supplied by the
Pelzer Co. for tbe old soldiers?our sol
diers?to think of enumerating a people
whose number would rua into five fig
Our soldiers say they feasted like a
Nero In his aromatic groves Somo of
tbem aatd tbey remembered an old friend
in tbe 'OO's who, a.'tor the war, dined
sumptuously with friends. Having fared
to the last crumb of hlsfcapaolty aod still
seelag more oa the table became out
rageous; it always made him mad, he
said, to see anything left and would try
still auother last crumb. Tbe soldiers of
tbe Pelzer Fourth might feel this way !*
deference to the old starvation days; but
still the accumulations on the tables
would not down before the devouring
element of crumbs or basketfuls, and
huge joints antire were compelled to be
carried away. Another feeling of more
aesthetic nature pervaded their spirits?
that tbey were, bv themselves, altogether
and alone, the only "old soldiers" under
tbe big trees that day at Pelzer. There
were no brethren, nor sisters, nor sons,
nor daughters of this or tust commin
gled with tbem to mar tbe joy of their
true old time fellowship. Tbose gray
beards know that the mustaches of brown
and yellow oannot feel tbe scars la their
hearts, tbe wounds in tbeir bodies, tbe
lameness of their wooden oratcbes, and
tbe numbness of tbeir empty sleeves; so
when tbe call to banquet or arms is given
"old soldiers" tbey want to know that
the reunion means "Tbem."
The old fellows marched through the
streets of Pelzer, and we have seen some
of tbem that looked younger after
tbe march, so great is tbe rejuvenating
power of patriotism. Tbey said tbe day
was hot and tbe dust dry, but my! how
glowing they were in tbe aheek, how
right In the eye and light in step, and
we don't believe, ?fier all. that should a
war in the same prlnolple ocour again to
morrow, that tboy would stay la the
house or oomplala of rheumatism or
cratohes. We doa't, someway, believe
that the war Is fought?but that it is yet
to be fought aod won?and we believe
that the dissatisfaction In their hearts is
the ohlef glow of youth aod prop of
strength which brightens and upholds
them for some future mystical, unllned,
bat, in faith realized day when righteous
ness shall cover the earth as the waters
cover the ses.
We bad left our own Piedmont Jost
that oar own In family might be with
the old soldlers, bat great as was the
attraction of the Fourth's celebration at
Piedmont, we are not sorry that we were

'and at the same time opening a bottle of any other, and you
will be surprised how muck longer WHITE 8TONE L ITH IA

you can make of the softness of this water, that it does not have
the sharp, burning sensation on the tongue or stomach when
drinking it that most carbonated waters have. If you will give
