Eonest and sincere in wanting to get
the people together and for them to

tipns are much more evenly divided as
to numbers now than they were then.
For such a small majority to keep on
talking about getting together, and at
the' same time insinuating that the
small majority is the law and order
crowd^ and the other fellows are lawless
and everything that is bad, is not
a very good way to get peace and
harmony in the ranks. We have always
been conservative, and we have
always been willing to concede some
right of opinion to the fellow who did
not happen to agree with us, and wften
we have been defeated we have accepted
the result without murmur or
complaint. We do resent the insinua
tion that all the virtue and tall the
patriotism and all the law abiding
elements tare on the other side. And
we will never get the people together
by claiming that the only salvation
of the State was the election of Manning
and that "the tin-horn gamblers,
all the blind tigers, all the red lig&t
iiabitues, all tne criminals ana near
criminals," were against him, intimating
that only those with "stainless",
records were with him. That is too
severe an arraignment of those near j
70,000 white folk who did not vote for J
frim and it puts about half the peo-;
pie of the State in that class. iMr. j
Tillman forgets in his old age fcowj
ibitter he was. iAmd that old bitterness
still lingers in his system.
We wiant to see the people get toether,
but in order to do so there;
must be mutual concession. The
Manning people in this county drew
the lines much more closely than the
other side. Even on down to the
smallest office. Such a policy will not
help to bring about the brave days
"When the rich man loved the poor
And the p/or man loved the great;
When none was for a faction
And all were for the Sitate."
This is the ideal to which we must
An editor approached St. Peter at
the Golden Gate and handing him a
long list of delinquent subscribers
said: "Look this list over carefullyand

of them inside, but a fellow slipped
through here the other day who took l

There is some sort of State law
which requires the county to put up
the signs that you are talking about,
and we would be glad to see the law
enforced. If we could ever get
through with the everlasting liquor
question law then we might have
some time to look after other laws.
It is a good thing to have the roads
posted. We have frequently felt the
need of such posting.
How about using the split log drag
on some of the roads after the next!
rain. It would help them wonderfully
and it would cost very little.

this proposition, with no purpose to

but with the hope of collecting some

Until the first day of October we

date every name on our list that is in
arrears will be taken off, without regard
to any consideration or respect

without we get pay for it, and we can
at least save the cost of white paper.
This is final. i
The price of cotton is good and there !
is no excuse for not paying for your

granted their request. This is' written
in all kindness and good vill, but
it takes money to buy paper. The

will show to date you have paid. If
there are errors they will be gladly i

I thank my friends for again placing

gratitude in my breast for those of my
friends and sup-porters who have always
been loyal and true. In continuing
the work of the office I shall,
as ever, discharge my duties impartially
and to the "best of my abirtv, with
