This is the Spot Gash
You have heard so much about. The
Store where Credit is unknown. The
Store where Reliable Clothing is sold
at a small martin of profit, smaller by
far than any Credit Clothier can afford.
We have told you this before, and we mean every word
of it. If we weren't doing this very thing, instead of a large
and prosperous Clothing Store you would find here simply an
empty place. i ?
The trade wouldn't come to us and pay Cash if they could
get the same Goods at the same prices on a credit.
People don't come here to trade because they like us.
They have found out that it pays them to trade here.
And it'll pay you, too.
More customers are coming every month, and our busi
ness is by far the largest we have ever known.
Our Fall Clothing is here, ready for your inspection. .
Here are some of the values we offer :
la i loy*
Istfce lowpfioe we^lace onabigline of Men's and Young
Hen's Suits. Blue and Blaok Cheviots, also Cassimers in
Checke and Plaids. Every ono of them excellent value, and
we doubt if a Credit Store can match them for a dollar more.
Is the small price we place on an excellent lineo? Hen's
Suits in Bine and Black Worsteds, Blue and Blaok All Wool
Cheviots. Also, Cassimers in Stripes, Checks and Plaids.
These Suits are not usually sold at $7.60, but here you save
at least a dollar to a dollar and a half on them.
At $10.00, $12.50, $15.00, $16.50, $18.00 and $20.00 you
will find an assortment that would do credit to a much larger
?ity. These Suits have to bo seen to be appreciated. But
you can take our word for it that there's a saving for you at

Columbia, Sept. 12.-The State Dem

night and officially declared the result.
A sub-conimittee, consisting of Gov
ernor Mcsweeney, J. G. Richard. Jr.,
J. M. Grier, A. J. Parrott and Cole M.
Blease, was appointed to tabulate the
vote. While they were out Col. .Jones
called the attention ot tho committee
to the fact that there were two or
three constitutional amendments to he
voted upon in the general election and I
suggested that the committee print
tickets therefor. This was agreed to.
No one seemed to be very familiar with
the purport of the amendments, except
that allowing special legialation as to
Col. Crews made a motion that here
after when a voter made a mistake in
depositing a State ballot in a county
box, or vice versa, that it be counted.
Messrs. T. Y. and L. J. Williams and
Governor Mcsweeney warmly opposed
this motion, declaring that it would |
open the way to fraud. Governor Mc
sweeney said that instead of making
the rules lax they should be made
more stringent and, on a viva voice
vote, Col. Crew's motion was lost by a
Mr. Blease offered a resolution call
ing to the attention of clubs that they
must organize previous to an election

tion. It was stated that a number of

After the tabulation committee had
reported Governor Mcsweeney offered
resolutions thanking Chairman Jones
and Secretary Park for their splendid,
untiring and fair work in conducting
the primai/ and irr their uniform
courtesy to members.
Col. Jones replied, thanking the
committee for the resolution and their
expression of esteem and added that he
had been born a Democrat and ex
?ected to die one. He spoke highly-of
iv. Parka's assistance.

Again the Short Line to the West.
Again a project is on foot to utilize
the gap through the Blae Ridge Moun
tains on the northwestern edge of
South Carolina in order to make a
short railroad line from the west to
the South Carolina seaboard. And on
the face of it the pian looks more
feasible than those that have been
heretofore presented. The route in
dicated by the projectors would make
almost an air line from Memphis and
Chattanooga to Columbia and from
Cincinnati to Columbia. Many miles
will be saved. Furthermore it looks
from the connections at each terminus
that the Southern railway might be
more or less interested, though noth
ing is known here as to what interests
Tho application fer a charier for the
new company was filed with the Secre
tary of State yesterday. The company
ie to be known as the Tennessee,
Georgia and South Carolina Railway
Company, and is to be capitalised at
(250,000 with the privilege of increas
ing to $1,000,000. The corporators are
Wm. B. Frink, of Chicago, Merrill
Skinner, of Bine Ridge, Ga., and Co
lumbus B. Baugb, of Mineral Bluff,
Ga. In this State the proposed rail
road line ia to have the city of Ander
son as one of the termini and tho other
at some point on the Chattooga river
in Oconee county, passing through the
townships of Centerville, Anderson
and Fork in Anderson county and
Center, Toogaloo, Wagner and Chat
tooga in Oconee county, going on via
Clayton in Rabun county, Ga., through
Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee
to Charleston, Tenn., just outside the
city of Chattanooga, a point on the
Southern's southwestern main line
from Lynchburg, Va., to Chattanooga,
Tenn., and below. Anderson, West
minster and Walhalla will be points
touched in South Carolina. It will be
noted that at Anderson the connection
with the Southern via the Columbia
and Greenville division will be made,
and at Charleston, Tenn., the Memphis
divisions of the t>ame line will be made,
and the link will be almost an air line
through the mountain walls, enabling
trains to come throogb without going
around by Knoxville on the one hand
or Atlanta and Spartanburg or Augusta
on the other.

ators whose names are attached to the
application for the charter tiled.-Co
