THE CAMPAIGN MEETING.
The Senatorial and Congressional
candidates' meeting was held here
yesterday. The candidates for Sen
ate spoke at the grove of the Patrick
Military Institute in the morning, and
the candidates for the lower House of
Congress spoke in the Court-room in
the afternoon. At the morning meet
ing there were present about MO peo
ple, and about 400 at the afternoon
It was so arranged at the morning
meeting that Messrs. Latimer and
Evans spoke last, and up to that point
the meeting was without any incident
of interest. At the close of Mr. Lati
mer's address Mr. Evans, from the
start, began to handle Mr. Lalimor's
record with the gloves off, and soon
had Latimer to his feet making de
nials. A ripple of ezciiemeui ran
over the audience, which increased to
the point where there were hurrahs
for Latimer and counter hurrahs for
Evans and a pretty general moving up
to the stand. The question was the
distribution of f.ee passes by Latimer.
The remarks of Evans were full of
withering sarcasm, but Latimer held
his own well. He exhibited pome
confusion, but the acclaim of bis fol
lowers in the audience soon brought
him round alright.
The first address was by Hon. George
Johnstone, and it was decidedly the
best address delivered. His principal
theme wac government by the people
as against paternal government, and
his remarks on this subject were
broad, learned and eloquent. He
spoke of the great und varied indus
tries of this country, and the necessi
ty of electing a mou broad enough to
aid in placing his party on that high
plane which protects and fosters all
without favoritism to any.
Mr. Henderson followed, referring to
the war of 1SG1-G5 as being fought to
the finish and ended, but called atten
tion to the industrial war which has
been in progress since 1S0">, exhibiting
itself specially in the iniquitous tariff
law of the Republican party, which
protects the interest of the East to
the detriment of the industries of the
South. He touched upon the Philip
pine question, condemning the Repub
lican policies there, which are actuated
- by politics only.
Hon. J. J. Hemphill spoke next.
He made an excellent address, illus
trating the protective tariff in its
operation as a tax upon the people,
referred to his record in Congress, told
a few pleasing anecdotes and drew
Hon. William Elliott was the next
speaker. He deprecated the cry that
the Demoeratic party was down in the
dust?their opportunities for victory
were never greater since they came out
of power nix years ago. He related
how the Democratic minority in Con
gress had so often defeated the Re
publicans in important measures that
it Was now no longer exciting to defeat
them. He referred to the services he
had reudered in Congress, in the civil
war, and later in the State in estab
lishing white supremacy. He plainly
showed that he had never turned loose
any work for the good of the people
he had undertaken until it was finish
ed, and thought what he had accom
plished entitled him to the position
of Senator. And, indeed, few men
could have accomplished what I*?ir.
Elliott did in Beaufort, the very centr?
of the black district, and that almost
Hon. A. C. Latimer next addressed
the audience. He led off with a
criticism of Mr. Henderson's remarks
on the protective tariff, endeavoring
to show how futile it is and what a
waste of time to attempt the discus
sion of the protective tariff, as the
Republicans are in power and ad
dresses would be to empty seats. That
practical business sense should obtain
among Congressmen, as in all business,
and that got which could be got?ap
propriations to the agricultural de
partment for bulletins for distribution,
garden and feed seed and appropria
tions for buildings. His speech was
devoted principally to the defence of
"charges" against him and in antici
pating remarks of Mr. Evans who was
to follow him. It cannot be said that
Mr. Latimer made a fine speech, the
opportunity and lack of time were
Hon. John Gary Evans followed
next. Mr. Latimer had remarked that
he was the only farmer running against
five lawyers. Evans led off by char
acterizing this claim as the "baby
act," and his mimicing ridicule con
vulsed the audience with laughter.
Mr. Latimer took on ^.ho colors of a
boiling lobster, aud when Evans, with
withering sarcasm, referred to his use
and d/stnbutron of free passes, seed
di?jtribution and the putting his son
in office, Mr. Latimer sprang to his
foot, denied the free pass <ii>
tribution and demanded the proof.
Kvans replied that he had a letter in
his pocket from a gentleman offering
to make affidavit that passes had been
given by Latiiner, but the letter was
not produced. There were cries for
Latimer and counter cries for Evan?,
with occasional flings from the audi?
ence at both. Continui?g Mr. Evans
said men should be elected who could
stand up and fight the Republicans for
the rights of democrats, and not play
the "baby act" before the brains
of the nation in Washington.
A more patient aud respectful crowd
never assembled in Anderson to listen
to campaign addresses. ?Evcry candi
date was listened to attenively and
every one of them were applauded.
Ail the candidatss had warm friends
in the audience, but Mr. Latimer ap
peared to have the maiority of ibern.
He was warmly applauded aud re
ceived aiauy beautiful flowers.
THE AFTERNOON MEETING.
Notwithstanding the oppressive
heat the interest in the campaign
meeting abated but little in the after
noon. There were at leaBt 400 pres
ent in the court room. Addresses
wers delivered by W. J. Stribling, K.
F. Smith, Wyatt Aiken, I. H. McCal
la, Oeo. E. Prince, K. M. Rueker, Jr.,

We have not the space this week to
report the speeches. There were no
issues under discussion. Every one
of the candidates stands on the same
Democratic platform and the only
question involved is qualification. All
the addresses were good aud delivered
in that fairness and manly style char
acteristic of each of the candidates.

JUST now we are making another "raid" on Prices, and) ou> every arti
cle of Summer Merchandise we have CUT the PRICES so- cleae until there
hcidly remains enough profit for living expenses. So it naturally follows
that there is money in it for you.
A great many people, 'tis true, are under the impression that when a
Merchant advertises a lot of Cut Prices on seasonable and staple goods that
thei e is a catch somewhere, and are wary about taking in these Cut Price
Sal.'B. x'o those, especially, who are of this opinion we aek that you- visit our
Store, yet cur prices, note well the quality of our Goods, and we> promise to
convince you beyond a doubt that there are such things as Cut Priced.
Advertising Cut Prices and Bargains is not a "hobby" of ours, for only
twice during the year do we advertise these things, for since we have been ia
business we have established a reputation of selling the best Goods at close
prices tho year round, so when we do advertise Cut Prices and Bargains you
will find that they are unusually good ones.
Business so far has been VERY good this Summer, and to make the
rest of the Summer monthB busy ones with us, we are offering unusual Bar
gains in our different departments. Run your eye over this list, and if there
ia anything on it that you will need see us before purchasing elsewhere, you
will be doing the right thing to keep money in your purse :
