It "will be noied that Mr. J. \Y. Nor-:
wood does not offer liis reward oi I
$5,000 for the apprehension and eon-1
eviction of the party who assaulted;
Dr. Mcintosh but for the party who j
instigated the deed.
A meeting was held in Columbia the
other day to ask that some of the can- j
didates for governor who are against
the administration get out or that
some arrangement be made w hereby i
the opposition could centre on one;
man. The candidates didn't bite at i
the bait a: all. In fact net sufficiently j
to attei.-l the meeting In fact would j
not such a proceeding be in violation j
of the constitution of the party? If i
a caucus should decile on a certain ,
candidate and he should accept would
mrvt hp thp candidate of a faction?
It is all very funny. 'Want to get rid
of factionalism and yet trying to centre
on a candidate for a faction to support.
What's the matter with Simms
and Richards and Irhy? Aren't they
pretty good men? Wouldn't any one
of them make a good conservative gov~

State would be safe by the election of
any one of the candidates who has any
cliance of election of whatever faction.
They are all good men and patriots
who would serve their State faithfully
and well. Dr. Cromer issues a statement
that a committtee of three has
been appointed to take up the matter
of plimination or of centreing on I
some one. What will the others say?
There has never toeen any difference
between Gov. Blease and Dr. Mcintosh
as to the statement made "by Drs.
Knowlton and Mcintosh. The statement
read by Gov. Blease at the Abbeville
meeting is the statement filed
in his office and has the signature of
Drs. Knowlton and Mcintosh. We do
not suppose it ever for one moment
entered the mind of Gov. Blease that
the signatures would be questioned.
If the signature is not genuine both
Dr. Mcintosh and the governor have
been imposed upon in a most outrageous
We have known Dr. Mcintosh for
many years and we know him to be
an honorable and an upright citizen
and one who speaks the truth and in
this case there could be no motive for
sneakine anvthinsr else. He is not in
politics and we ftnow him wel enough
to believe that he would not make a
false statement to help or hurt any
one. He is not that type of man.
Might it not be possible that the statement
which he says was written ai
the penitentiary in pen and ink was
written and signed and then another
one was written, which was signed by
Dr. Knowlton which Mr. Earle says
is the genuine signiture of Dr. Knojvlton?
In any event ther eis no issue between
Gov. Blease and Dr. 'Mcintosh
this matter whether the signature
is genuine or a forgery. In reading the
statement at Abbeville the only comment
made by Gov. Blease at Ab/bevillle
was to speak in the most complimentary
terms of Drs. Mcintosh
k'unwltnn O* r-niir?p if mnlrAc a
difference to Dr. Mcintosh whether or
not his name has been forged, but that
raises a question with some one else.
As to the intimation that Dr. Mcintosh
shot himself, $f it were not such
a serious matter it would be too ridiculous
to mention or notice. "Why s: aid
tie shoot himself? The very thought
is absurd. Afraid to meet Gov. Blease, [
why? Nothing to be afraid c? and besides
that he nor his father before
him is not built in that mould that
they would be afraid to meet any one.
. t only illustrates to what depths some
will descend in politics when they
think it will help or hurt the cause
The shooting of Dr. IVIelntosh was a j
very um rtunate taing ana we arc
'.".ad ihat the wound is not a serious
ne and hope th.it he will soon be
c it again. It is sincerely to be hoped
that the coward who did ii may b" ! \:
apprehended and given t'.ie punishment :
>ijcii a dastardly act deserves.
We cannot sec w :ere it can or will
have anv effect one wav or the otn<ir .

Washington, July 24.?A. P. Thorn, !a

The Southern railway has acquired i c
4.000 feet of waterfront in the Mag- J ?

the first unit of a coal pier. Daniel j r

4*I can not say just when the pier
will be ready for coal," Mr. Thorn
said. "However, the money for the
development has been arranged for
and the company will proceed with a
the work as rapidly as possible. It
intends to afford every facility to the |
coal producers along its various lines." ,
As to whether the new pier would
be open to coal hauled to Charleston \
on railways other than the Southern
Mr. Thom said he was not fully advised,
but he felt sure the Southern c
would offer operators on other rail- c
ways an outlet for their product.
The rate from Black Mountain arid 1
adjoining Virginia fields to Charles- ^

as charged to Norfolk and other r
