A copy of the Edgefield Advertiser
of August 15, 1878, printed in red ink
in honor of the second anniversary
of the great political meeting at Edge
field on August 12, 1876, at which
time "Edgefield enunciated that Rad
icalism should go no further in Soutl
Carolina," has fallen into the hands of
The Herald and News. At that time
the late lamented James T. Bacon
'was editor of the Advertiser. The old
files ot the Advertiser were burned,
and there are very few copies of this
historic "red" issue or the Advertiser
in existence. Senator B. R. Tillman
has a copy, and Mrs. Carrie Gary, of
Abbeville, a sister-in-law of General
Mart Gary, who took so prominent a
part in the meeting which the issue
commemorates, also has a copy. The
one now in hand makes only three in
existence today, so far as is known
This issue of the Advertiser was
-brought to The Herald and News of
fice by Dr. J. William Folk.
August 12, 1876, was the day fired
by the Edgefield Radicals again to
open an election campaign. Chamber
lain, Mackey, Smalls, Hayne, Jillson
and other leaders in the Republican
rTanks, were invited to edliveir ad
dresses, and reached Edgefield that
morning. The Radicals turned out in
great numbers. The Democrats, un
der the leadership of General M. C.
Butler, who acted as marshal of tMe
day, and General Mart W. Gary, "the
bald eagle of Edgefield," who deliver
ed the principal Democratic speech
of the day, also began pouring into
Edgefield early in the morning. Fr-nm
the banks of the Saluda and from the
banks of the Savannah, and from
every other portion of the county,
they came, and they demanded that
the Republican meeting be turned in
to a joint debate, .thirty minutes be
ing allowed a Republican s'peaker,
and then 30 minutes be given to a
Democratic orator. The result was that
the Republicans were forced- to ac
dede to this demtand, and when Gen
eral Gary and G-eneral Butler had
concluded their orations the Radicals
were thoroughly cowed, and from
their standpoint the great meeting
which had been planned resulted in
ignominious failure. T'he meeting
was brought to a close -oy the break
ing down of the speaker's stand. The
Radicals departed broken mn spirit,
and sadder but wiser.
Two years later, in commenora
tion of the great event, which played
so important a part in the redemp
tioni of South Carolina, Col. Bacon
printed his newspaper, the Advertiser,
in red ink. The account written by
Col. Bacon of the meeting two years
before, handled in his inimitable style,
was rep-roduced, and the issue carried
the -following account of the great
cele'bration' of the second anniversary
'of the occasion:

Further in South Cjarolina."-The
Old Advertiser Puts on the Ried
Shirt in Honor and in Memory of
the Glorious Democracy of the True
Banner County of South Carolina!
Monday last was the anniversary
of the great day on which Edgefield
enunciated that Radicalism should gc
no further in South Carolina. And
that she did enunciate this mandate
is an indisputable fact of history. And
that she kept the faith after the enun
ciation-courageously and splendidly
-is equally an undeniable fact of his
tory. And that her action on the 12th~
of August, 1876, was "the first thing
that made Hampton a possibility.'
(Tudge Mackey said so in his speeh)
s alike in.controvertibl1e. She wtore
the Red Shirt in those memorable
das and in it she fought andl won
the prize. And today-in honor and
in memory of Edgeflid in the Red
Shirt-we print the old Advertiser in
red, and dedicate it to the glorious
SOUTH CAROLINA'S HISTORY. *

Democracy of the true Banner County
of South Carolina.
As to the great .nd brilliant meet
ing of Monday last, we will not de
scribe it in detail,' as we often do such
meetings. It. is unnecessary. Our
people were present, and saw with
their own eyes, and heard with their
own ears, and rejoiced in their hearts
of h1earts. Well nigh all of our 32
clubs were represented, splendidly
mounted, and many of them wearing
the historical red shirt. And there
were representative citizens-ladies
as well as gentlemen-present from
all sections of our vast county, even
the most distant. Brigadier General
Bnj,in E. Nicholson was ihe &.rand
marshal of the day-a handsome and
knightly man, whose own war record:
is high and clear, and in whose veins
flows the noble blood of the patriotic
Emily Geiger. The Edgefield Rifles
were en grande tenue; and the Edisto
Rifles, under their staunch and brave
old leader, Major Lybrana, manfully
upheld the honor of tne sturdy yeo
,nanry. The music was glorious! The
procession was magnileent! And
when Hampton, the great and good,
mounted the stand, the enthusiasm
rent the heavens. He was followed
by Bonham, and Mackey, and You
mans, and Tillman, and Moise, and
Gary, and Sheppard, and representa
tives of the Register, and the News
and Courier, and the Monitor, and the
Advertiser. And fair women-the
fairest of the fair-and 'decked, in all
of fashion's. bravery-smiled, and:
cheered, and waved their lace hand
kerchiefs, and clapped their kidded
hands. And the vast grove was a
grand kaleidoscope of animated beau- i
And all our guests spoke with full
hearts 2nd tongues of flame--nobly,
generously, dau~ently! This week it
is totally im~possibly ror 'us to give
their speeches. Next week it shall be
our pleasing duty to do so.
An~d in every campaign year, in the
great future, let Edgefield and the
Advertiser put on the Red Shirt, and
mark the day that gave her a glory
as impe.rishable ' as the everlasting
