STATE CAMPAIGN MEETING.
The campaign meeting of the State
candidates held in this city Friday
last, was highly entertaining to the
large audience gathered tor the occa
sion, and was, to all appearances, alto
gether satisfactory to the candidates.
During the forenoon the audience
numbered, probably, 800. .Many la
dies were present. In the afternoon
threatening clouds made their appear
ance in the west and the crowd dwin
dled considerably; hut every candidate
was heard by a fairly good audience.
The meeting was held in the grove of
the Patrick Military Institute. The
day was as near ideal as a mid-summer
day could he. Slowly moving clouds
now and then shut off the sun's rays
and stirred the atmosphere, making
the live hours patient listening a pos
sibility. The meeting was almost
painfully orderly. The two Colonels,
Talbert and Tillman, relieved tht
tedium somewhat by a ??ghL show of
beligereucy toward one another, but it
didn't last long enough nor go |fnr
enough to bo very entertaining to an
Anderson audience. The question be
tween them was concerning Col. Tal
bert's scheme of applying taxes to the
public schools. Tillmnu wasattarking.
Talbert innocently interrupted by re
marking, "I do not know the remedy,
1 want to know it."' Tillman replied,
?arcaatically, "You should inform
yourself, then." Talbert sprang to his
feet, advancing toward Tillman and,
shaking his finger at him, said, appa
rently laboring under great excite
ment, "I never want information from
such a source as you are." With sang
froid sarcasm Tillman replied, "I
thank God Almighty that He endowed
me with enough brains not to seek in
formation from such an ignoramus as
you." At thiB juncture there were a
few scattering shouts for both Tillman
and Talbert, but the incident between
them wnB closed.
Another Blight wave of excitement
was started by Col. Tillman being in
terrupted in his remarks about the
negroes being robbed of two-thirds of
the taxes they pay for school purposes.
J. D. Harris, of Helton, demanded tk
proof. Tillman undertook to explain.
Mr. Harris cut him oil' by insisting on
having the proof before ho spoke
further. Chairman Watkins rose to
quiet matters, but Tillman snid to him,
"Don't worry nbout me, captain, I can
take care of that snphead." Then
turning to Mr. Harris he said, "can
you tell me how much money is pnid
into the State treasury ? You can't tell
me that, and until you know, you bet
ter keep your mouth shut." There
were shouts for Tillman and counter
shouts for Harris, and the incident
The meeting was called to order by
County Chairman H. H. WatkinB at 11
o'clock. Divine blessings were in
voked by the Rev. M. B. Kelly, of the
St. John's Methodist Church, this city.
The program placed the gubernatorial
candidates lir. t.
('apt. D. C. Heyward was introduced
and was greeted with much applause.
He spoke in glowing terms of the prin
ciples of Democracy. Complimented
Anderson on the splendid record the
County bad mad-u iu the cause of De
mocracy, especially iu 1870. He had
never been a candidate for office?was
comparatively a Btranger here, but
South Carolinians are never strangers.
His own County hnd unanimously in
dorsed him without his solicitation.
He is in favor of tdspeusnry; of im
proved school facilities; morestringeut
laws against trusts and monopolies;
liberal pensions for old soldiers; leav
ing matter of soldiers homo to be de
cided by them: in favor of child labor
laws. If elected, would justly enforce
the law. Paid glowing tribute to the
ladies, made mauy friends, a good im
pression on every one, closed amidst
hurrahs for Heyward and received
Hon.W. .1. Talbert was next intro
duced. He pnid a brief tribute to the
ladies and then took for discussion tin:
"great principles of the "Alliance," the
motto of which was, "equal rights to
all and special privileges to none."
Great principles never fail. Monopolies
and trusts are the greatest danger now
confronting us. We need improved
method of assessing property for taxa
tion so that burden will fall equally
upon all. Taxes paid by whites should
go to educate white children. Negroes
should educate their own children and
manage schools as they do their
churches. Absolutely opposed to tax
ing whites to educate negro. Capital
and labor should be interd?pendant.
Ther- should be laws to protect weak
against the strong. In favor of liberal
pension to Confederate Veterans.
In favor of dispensary law prop
erly and carefully euforced. Col.
Talbert was listened to attentively and
received hand-clappings and applause
and flowers at the close.
Lieutenant Gov. Tillman came next.
He was greeted with "Jim, have you
got your sword yetf "Yes, and will
keep it rat her than give it to Roosevelt
to give to Hooker Washington," he re
plied. Proceeding to speak Col. Fill
man remarked that the prayer of Rev.
Kelly that only God-fearing, truthful
men be elected to office was hi accord
with his views, and he, stood ready to
be measured by 'hatyard stick, but he
wanted it iu the hands of that kind of
a maty and not iu the hands of Iviog
newspapers. I'rotn .this he proceeded
t<? pleasantly criticise and ridicule lira
competitors and their chances of elec
; tion. When lie reached Col. Talbert
his remarks became somewhat caustic,
and Col. Talbert couldn't keen his
Beat, but aroso and enacted Iii? part of
tbe Bceue above mentioned. Tillman
accused Talbert of completely ebang- I
iug his position on the negro school I
question. Thin Talbert llatly denied.
The discussion bi t ween them was
warm and amusing to the audience.
Hot h received cheers. Nothing was
said by Col. Tillmau concerning the
Senate ruling and Bword incident upon
which an opinion as to merits or de
merits could be based.
Dr. W. II. Timmermau was then in
troduced. He said he was asking oliice
on Jus merits and the record he had
made iu his many years ot service lor
the State as Treasurer and presiding
oflicer of State Senate. He claimed
that because of hin experience he was
better qualified Tor the position of
Governor than his competitors. Wants
position for one term only, and thinks
it reasonable request to gratify lauda
ble ambition. In favor of better school
facilities, better roads, better laws
agaiuBt the trusts, liberal pensions, &c.
He criticised Capt. Hey ward as gentle
man of elegant leisure, throwing
aiound cigars and possibly a little
brandy, while he (Timmerman) was
"working hard for my country.1' He
closed amid applause. The Dr. made
a good impression in Anderson. When
Dr. Timmerman was introduced a
little ten year old Miss in the audience
turned to her father and said, 'Tapa, is
that the old gentleman who always
Bits for the pictures of I'nelo SainT"'
M. P. An Bel, the last of the guberna
torial candidates, came next. He met
with a flattering reception. Many of
his old friends had been impatiently
waiting to hear him and some were
rude enough to call for him while one
or more preceding him were speaking.
He made a capital speech, covering
briefly all the important measures of
the times?increase of pensions, better
public schools, better laws against
trusts und monopolies, bettor roads,
and an effort to obtain government aid
in road building. Is in favor of the
dispensary as the best solution of the
whiskey question. He. was listened to
attentively and were frequently inter
rupted by cheers and roundly applaud
ed when he closed.
Candidates for Lieutentant-Gover
nor came next and was limited to live
minute? each. The candidates for this
office are Hon. F. B. Gary, Col. John
T. Slonn, Hon. Cole L. Mease. There
are no issues between them. All are
honorable and worthy men. Mr. Gary,
of Abbeville, has served as speaker of
the House for six years prior iTthe
last Legislature, and has made an ex
cellent reputation for ability, fairness
and affability. Mr. Sloan, of Colum
bia, but a native of Anderson County,
Peudleton being Iiis birthplace, has
never held office, but is among the
youngest of Confederate Veterans
lie was in the race for Lieuteunnt
Governor two years ago and came out
second best. He thinks that if there
be nuythiug in the logic of politics he
will be elected this time. Mr. Hlease,
of Newberry, hns served in the Legis
lature for a number of years, favors
biennial sessions, was original dispen
sary advocate, is friend of common
schools and agrees with Col. Talbert
on negro education.
Olliee of Attorney-General came
next. Bought for by Mr. X. IT. Gunter,
of Columbia, and Hon. W. P. Steveu
Bon, of Chesterfield. The only ques
tion to be settled as to these gentlemen
is which is the more capable or better
fitted for the position. They are
throwing a little sand at each other
about going before certain committees
while holding positions which made
the act inconsistent and their motives
somewhat questionable, but the dis
pute appears to be of little interest to
the people. Mr. Gunter is at present
assistant Attorney-G?n?ral, Mr. Ste
venson is a lawyer of considerable
reputation, has been a member of the
Legislature for several years and two
years ogo was elected Speaker of the
Messrs. o. T. Gfintt, of Columbiu. J.
Hnrvy Wilson, of Sumter, and J.
Thomas Austin, of Greenville, are
seeking the office of Secretary of State,
Mr. Gantt has served as assistant in
this office for four years. He claims to
have made a good record and to have
engineered a bill through the Legisla
ture last session whiidi brought into
tbe State Treasury $40,000. Mr. Wil
son claims to be a farmer, a Confed
erate Veteran, ^vaa member of Legisla
ture and introduced and had. passed
the bill above referred to as prepared
by Mr. Gantt. *lr. Austin is an old
tried Democrat, has served in the Leg
islature, nud was a member of the
Wallace Hou se. His home people have
always indorsed him whon he asked
Next came candidates for State Su
perintendent of Education. Mr. O. 11.
Martin, of Greenville, and Hon. J. J.
Mc.Mahan, the present superintendent,
presented their claims for this posi
tion. Both addresses were good. This
is the. first appearance of Mr. Martin
asking office of the people, lie made
many friends in Anderson. M v. Me
Maban has served two terms and made
au efficient superintendent.
For the office of Comptroller-Gcu
era), Messrs. N. W. Brooker, of Colum
bia, A. W. Jones, of Abbeville. \V. H.
Sliarpe. of Lexington, and G. L. Wal
ker? of Greenville, are contending.
Fach made a very nice speech in the
time given them. There are no issues,
and each promises to do his duty if j
Next came the candidates for the po
sition of Adjutant anil Inspector Gen
eral. Capt. Geo. D. Bouse, of Charles

Col. J. C. Boyd. of Greenville, Mai.
Paul E. Ayer. of Anderson, and Col.
J. D. Frost, of Columbia, present as
sistant in this oil-ice, are competitors.
Capt. Bouse waa absent because of ill
ness. Capt. Patrick gallantly gave
his time to the other speakers, this be
ing his home. The others addressed
the meeting. There was no mud sling
ing and each acquitted himself well.
For the position of H nil road Com
missioner there are nine earnest seek
ers. Eight of them addressed the
meeting here Tuesday. Messrs. J. C.
VVilborn, J. G. W?lling, James Cann
ier, B. L. Caughman, W. Boyd Evans,
A. C. Jepson, H. J. Kinard and Hon. J.
G. Mobley. Mr. H. H. Prince was ab
sent. Each one gave good reasons why
he should be elected. Mr. J. C. Wil
born is present incumbent This is a
highly important office and calls for
the exercise of sound judgment in mak
ing a selection. The meeting closed
with the addaesses of candidates for
this office. A good rain fell almost im
mediately after the meeting closed.
At night there was a meeting held at
Mill ville by the operatives of the An
derson Cotton Mills and the candidates
were invited to add res?; :!iem. Those
u tio availed themselves of the im ita
tion were Messrs. Tillman, McMuhan,
Frost, Patrick, Evans, Mobley, Caugh- J
man, Jepson, Brooker, Cansler, Wil- '

More Men Wanted For the Navy.
Washington, July 13.?Uncle Sam
will soon call upon South Carolina to
aid him in recruiting the 3,000 men
that comprise the addition to the en
listed branch - of the service author
ized by cougress in the recent naval
appropriation law. Instructions have
been issued to D. C. Haurahan, now
stationed at the Brooklyn navy yard,
to make a tour of the south this sum
mer with a recruiting party to make
enlistments. Ensign Hanrahan ex
pects to reach Columbia about the
latter part of this month and will
spend at least a week in tho capital
city where he will open a recruiting
station. The party will first go to
Lynchburg, Va., where they will es
tablish a station on July 19. From
there thoygo to North Carolina, stop
ping at Charlotte and Raleigh and
thence to Columbia. After making
enlistments at the latter point the
programme calls for a stop in Char
leston Aug. 4, remaining there until
Aug. 9, when they cross the line and
spend some time in Georgia. Ala
bama will be tho next State visited
and thence Ensign Hanrahan and his
party will open rendezvouses in Mis
sissippi, Louisiana and Tennessee.
So successful was tlia party which
visited Columbia last summer in eharge
of Lieut. George G. Mitchell in mak
ing enlistments for the navy that it is
expected Ensign Hanraban will find
South Carolina a fertile field for work
ing, and should the number of enlist
ments guarantee it he will prolong bis
stay in Columbia in order to give as
many as desire it an opportunity to
All applicants will be required to
stand a physical examination and if
successful they will be immediately
enlisted in the service and dispatched
to a training station, possibly Port
Royal, which tho navy department has
been using for that purpose recently.
The new ships for which men will
be required are the battleship Maine,
now Hearing completion at the .vorks
of Cramp tfc Sons, Philadelphia, and
the monitors Arkansas, under con
>uaction at Newport News, Va., the
Nevada, which the Bath Iron Works
are building at Bath, Me , the Florida,
ready for her preliminary trials, built
by Lewis Nixon, at Elizabethport, N.
J., anu the Wyoming, building at
S.in Francisco. Resides the torpedo
boat destroyers already accepted, there
are thirteen which will shortly bo
turned over to the government. Sevon
torpedo boats are also soon to be de
livered to the government and it is a
problem where sufficient men are to be
obtained to enable the placing in com
mission of all these new vessels. It
is estimated that there are 869,000
inhabitants in the citieswhiehEnsign
Hanrahan will visit and the depart
ment hopes to obtain from this num
bor a fair percentage of recruits.
Formerly it was the policy of the
navy department to work only the sea
faring population of the United States
for recruits but all idea that suoh re
cruits are better suited to the servioe
was abandoned some time ago and now
the department scours the .country,
sea coast and inland, to obtain men
for the navy. That the servioe may
be made as att ractive as possible steps
have been ta'.en to improve the status
of the blue jaokets. Gun captains
are hereafter to be eligible to advance
ment which will be quite an induce
ment for enlistment in the servioe.

There are Bargains
Are Bargains !
But, Oh ! Such a Difference.
A Bargain has been defined a "gai nful transaction," because it produces
profit or advantage to the purchaser. Some.folks are deceived by what they
are led to believe are Bargains until they fail to find the profit?the advan
tage which is not and never was there. "Sorrows remembered" may "sweeten
present joys," but that won't recoup the money squandered. There's no de
ception in this Store's Bargains, unless it be that Goods are better than our
claims for them But it makes people good natu red to be deceived that w?v.
Here is a Bargain that you cannot duplicate elsewhere for the same styie
and quality of Goods :
Egyptian Tissues and Foulards,
Sold for 20c and 25c yari reduced to 10c.
These Goods are of this season's make, no old stock or hard stock. We don't
want to carry these over, hence tho reduction.
You will find many, many other Bargains in this Store that will be worth
your while to take in. This is the season for price reductions, and* yon will
be surprised at the big values we offer.
You will always find our Stock thoroughly up-to-date.
Summer styles in Millinery are of dainty, graceful shapes, with * wide
range of trimmings.
Pretty effects in Parasols for those who want protection from the sum
rays. A big assortment of?
Gloves, Fans, Hosiery, Underwear, Etc.
In fact, you can find almost anything you want in Summer wear at pleas
Oxford Ties, Slippers and Shoea.

ters. Good, wearab?d Shoes, etc., for all sorts of occasions.
