In this huge list of names It is
impossible that we have not made
some mistakes. Names are perhaps
wrong in a few places; and other
?maller mistakes may have occurred,
but when you bear in mind that all
these names were taken down In a
hurry, and that in reading the writ
ing of others mistakes are liable,
these mistakes will be overlooked. If
in any particular our attention is
called to an error we shall be
pleased to correct it.
Our thanks go to the various sup
erintendents, and Fair officials, who
aided us very materially in getting
this list prepared for today's paper.

FAIR ABOOT OVER
HAS EXCEEDED THE EXPECTA
TIONS OF EVERYONE.
Sixteen Thousand People Go in the
Gates During the First Three Days,
.Yesterday Negro Day.
It can now hr- said that the Or1
angeburg County Fair is about tner.
Yesterday after?loon signs of this
were apparent frdm the fact that ex
hibitors were taking their exhibits
home. The judges had made their
decisions, the exhibits had remained
over three days and were being tak
The management of the Fair have
every reason to be congratulated
over the successful termination of
the venture, which when it was first
started last summer was regarded as
very doubtful. But the managers
went ahead, and did everything in
their power to give Orangeburg the
best county fair in the State, and
they succeeded, despite the fact that
they had only a few months in which
to get the buildings, the grounds, and
every detail arranged.
How weU the work had been done,
and how thorough had been the prep-(
aration was made plain to everyone
who visited the Fair on any of the
last four days. Praise has been uni
versal, and many were heard to say
that next year they would have ex
hibits in also, but that they were
afraid this time it would not be
worth while. The various schedule
events went on with precision and
the visitors were kept entertained.
Financially, the Fair has undoubt
edly done excellent for the first year,
and it will surprise many if it has
not at least made its expenses and
run even for the first time. With J
this start, and the impetus that it
will surely give, there is no reason
why the Fair should not only keep
going and expanding, but at the same
time be run at a profit to the stock
As an advertisement for Orange
burg, it is the best she has had in
years. And each year that it Tuns
Its advertising power will increase,
and with the increasing prestige of
Orangeburg's name must come more
development and improvements. The
Fair therefore will help the City to
a great extent and will help each in
dividual in. it.
One Fair is just about ever, but
the plans for the next will soon be
started, and next year an even great
er Fair will draw crowds to Orange
burg. There can be no possible reas
on why fhis Fair cannot in time be
made to take its place as a comrade
to the State Fair and the Charles
ton Gala Week.
The attendance at the Fair on the
first two days was about five thou
sand each day, while on Thursday
it went over six thousand?Thurs
day being the largest day. Yester
day, being the day for the colored
people, was not so largely attended,
but several thousand at least must
have been present. Throughout all
the days order was very good, and
only on one occasion did any serious
break occur in the good order of the
Fair. Then a drunken man began
shooting a pistol on the grounds,
and according to a report wounded a
man slightly, and shot several pigs.
Otherwise the conduct of the crowd
The judges have completed their
awards, and a list of them is pub
lished in another column. Also a very
nearly complete list of the Confed
erate Veterans who attended the
PHASE OF J. J. JONES' CASE.
Stated Appeal Pending and Probably
Argued ^Next Month. i
It was stated on Thursday that
the appeal of John J. Jones, the
Branchville attorney who was con
victed at Orangeburg last January
of the murder of Abe Pearlstine at
Branchville and sentenced to ten
yearB' and one month imprisonment,
will be argued before the Supreme
Court in December. Jones is in the
Penitentiary, and has been there for
some time awaiting the outcome of
his case, which will be argued in De
Those familiar with the case will
recall that Jones and Pearlstine be
came involved in a fist fight at
Branchville in the postofiice and that
(after the Ifight 'had ended, Joncls
turned as he was about to reach the
door and shot Pearlstine down. The
case was tried before Judge Mem
minger, at Orangeburg, and result
ed in Jones being found guilty of
manslaughter and sentenced to ten
years and one month's imprisonment
in the Penitentiary. Following the
conviction, Jones remained in the
jail at Orangeburg for two weeks and
was then removed to the Peniten
tiary, where he now is. He is not
in stripes and much comment has
been caused by this fact, for it was
generally thought that the appeal to
the Supreme Court had been aban
It is now stated, however, that an
appeal to the highest judicial tribu
nal is pending; that the record in
the case is not complete, owing to
some conflict which arose between
attorneys for the defence and prose
cution as to certain matters, which
have been submitted to Judge 'M'era
minger for settlement and his de
cision has not yet been made known
It is stated as soon as he renders a
decision and the case Is returned It
will be filed with the Supreme Court.
Da\'idson Defeats Clemson.
In a very fair game of football at
the Orangeburg County Fair gridiron
Davidson College defeated Clemson
College before a record-breakfng
crowd by a score of 21 to 5. The
game was a sno.ppy one.
THE OL? CONFEDS.
Attend the Fair Thursday and Greet
One of tho most appropriate recog
nitions miade by the Fair management
was their setting apart of one day?
Thursday?as. Con federate Veterans'
Day, during which all the old vet
erann Were admitted free of charge.
About one hundred and twenty-five
attended, and although some ex
pressed surprise that there were not
more, it must be remembered that
the war began just about fifty years
ago, and boys who were only thirteen
years old then are now 63. Thinner
and thinner gets the gray line, but
upon most occasions the citizens of
the present day are prepared to rec
ognize in them men of the first rank,
who were not found wanting when
I the test canie.
Among the veterans who regis
tered some had entered the Confed
erate army in Alabama and other
States; some entered with their
fathers as cooks?being too young
to fight?but were mustered in dur
ing the last months of the struggle.
Old acquaintances were renewed and
lall of the veterans enjoyed the day.
Arrangements had been made at
The Times and Democrat's booth for
all old soldiers to register, also with
what company and regiment they
served during the war, but owing to
the fact that they were all made to
register at the gate, there was some
confusion and only about forty gave
in their names. The names and the
companies with which they served
