('OL. ELLISO.N S. REITT DEAD.
End of a Long Life Came on His
Enoree Plantation Yesterday-Fun
eral in Columbia This Afternoon.
Col. Ellison S. Keitt died Thursday
morning at 6.45 o'clock at his home
on -his Enoree plantation, on the Broad
river side of Newberry county. He
had been in- failing health for a long
time, and, while his death was not un
expected, it is none the less sad.
Col. Keitt was born in Orangeburg
county on July 3, 1831, and he would,
therefore, 'have reached his four-score
years if 'he had lived until July of
this year. Col. Keitt married a Miss
Wadlington, daughiter of Col. Thos. B.
Wadlington, one of the wealthiest
planters of this county before the
war. Mrs. Kei'tit died in 1862, while Col
Keitt and 'his wife w?ere residents of
Richland county, near Columbia.
During the War Between the Sec
tions, Col. Keitt commanded Company
M, Mounte! Rifles, 20th regiment, S.
C. V. e'pr the war he moved to
Newberr%.,,county, and lived on his
plantation, which is known far and
wide as the Enoree plantation.
Col. Keitt took an active interest in
public affairs, and was a. close stud
eat of political history, and was prob
ably one of the best informed men of
his day. He represented Newberry
county in the legislature 1864-1866,
along with such men as Gen. A. C.
Garlington and Major C. H. Suber. He
was probably one of the most eloquent
stump speakers on political questions
that this tate has produced, and his
services were freqiently in demand
in national campaigns. He spoke
throughout the North,and East dur
ing -the first campaign that Grover
Cleveland made' for the presideney,
and other national , campaigns prior
to and after that time. He was also a
liberal contributor to the press of the
country on politicall questions, but
principally on the financial question.
For many years he has lived quiet
ly on his Enoree plantation, devoting
his .time and energi s to the manage
ment of his large farming interests.
He is survived by his daughter, Mrs.
L. P. Miller, who in riecent years has
made her hone with him, and two
sons, Mr. Jos. L. Keitt, .a s'uccessful
farner of this county, and Prof. Thos.
W. Keitt, of Clemson college. Anoth

promise, died many years ago in bis

THE CAREER OF "BILL" GILDE.1
Mr. Hipp Paid Fine Imposed by City
But Liquor Law Violator Was
Bill Gilder, colored, the hero of the!
"moonshine" court on Saturday night,
who was sentence:d to pay a fine of
$100 or to serve sixty days in two
cases of violating the city's liquor or
dinances, was released from the
town's custody upon the payment ofl
$75, the fine having been raduced byI
Mayor Langford at the urgent solici
tation of Mr. Jno. C. Hipp, for whom
Gilder is working, on condition thalt
Mr. Hipp take him out of town im
mediately, and was immediately re
arrested on a warrant sworn out by
State Constable T. P. Adams charging
him with the offence under the State
statute, holding him for trial by the
Mayor Langford at the meeting of
council on Tuesday night, brought the
matter to the attention of council
with the statement that Mr. Hipp
wanted his $75 returned. Council
took no action, holding that the police
docket was a matter entirely with the
Gilder bas been before the mayor
charged with viqlating the dispensary
law on a number of occasions in the
past several yes,rs, and has become
notorious, in this respect.- His usual
course has been to give bond and
appeal to the circuit court. When he
was arrested on Saturday. night by
the police officers and convicted by
the mayorfi Constable Adams expected
him to take this action, and he swore
out a warrant, and bad Chief Biehop
appointed as constable to serve it as
soon as Gilder should be released
from the custody under bond.
Mayor Langford stated to council
that Mr. Hipp bad tried to get him to
reduce the fine to $50, which he re
fused to do, but had told .Mr. Hipp he
would reduce it to $75 on condition
he should take Gilder out of town
immediately. Mr. Hipp paid the $75.
Chief Bishop released the -negro from
the city's cusody and rearrested him
under the other warrant.
Of course, should Mr. H-ipp receive
his $75 back, it would amount to re
lieving Gilder altoegether of the pun
ishment to 'which he was sentenced
by the city. Had Gilder served his
time under the citl's senkjence hie
would still have been subject to ans
wer to the charge in the circ,uit;
