WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY I,. 1888.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
We send out to-day a letter to all
our subscribers who are in arrears,
and we earnestly ask that every sub
scriber who gets one will at once re
ply. If it is impossible to send the
money at once, and a delay of four or
five days must be had to raise the
money, then please send us a postal
card, stating when you can send the
money. If it is impossible just now
to send all the money, then send as
much as possible, and let us know
when the remainder can and will be
sent. We cannot continue sending
the paper indiscriminately to any one
whose name may be on the list. We
must conduct our business in a more
B1usiness-like way. We will send the
paper to any one, for the cash in ad
vance; or we will send the paper for a
reasonable length of time to any relia
ble person: but we must draw the line
somewhere, and we cannot continue
sending the paper to any one who
owes for as long as a year, uiless he
makes us a remittance for at least a
part of what he is now due.
-*We have sent a very polite letter,
l'ontaining not one word calculated to
give offence, and we hope that we will
.be treated as courteously. We desire
to retain every subscriber we now
have, but in such a large number there
will necessarily be found a few dead
beats who never pay anything they
can avoid. We hope this latter class
is small, but our former newspaper
experience teaches us to be watchful.
The amount of subscription is small
-only $1.50 a year, and any one who
cares to read his county paper, can
pay that small sum.
We again ask attention to that letter
we send out.
DIRTY ELECTION WORK IN MARION.
The town of Marion has been great
ly excited over a recent town election
The managers of the election were C.
C. Evans, Jr., E. B. Wheeler, and P.
A. Wilcox. At the close of the elec
tion, C. D. Evans proposed that he
count the ballots and that the other
two managers should keep tally. Af
ter counting the ballots they announc
-ed the result, and it appeared that of
the four wardens eected, W. J. Mc
Kerall had been elected in place of the
regular nominee, .W. S. Foxworth, by
a vote of 77 to 24. Not being content
,with the election, P. A. Wilcox in
company with E. T. Wilcox, that night
recounted the votes, and found that
W. J. McKerall had received only'43
votes and that W. S. Foxworth had
received 84. He made affidavit to
*this effect, and Foxworth contested
the election. Eminent counsel was
employed on both sides, and numer
ousa~idavits were fied. There had
ben129 votes in alcast, and-of these
votes 112 were identified by the par
ties who voted them showing,
conclusively that they were the
original ballots that had been voted
at the election. Of the 129 voters,
eighty-two, seventy of whom were
.~white, swore they voted for Foxworth;
-aid seventy-four swore they did not
vote for McKerall.
The Marion Pee Dee Index says :
"No further testimony was offered.
No effort was made to account for the
difference in the vote as declared by
the managers and by the Council. No
one was charged with changing the
ballots af er they were count:d by the
managers and deposited in the box.
Mr. McKerall's lawyers expressly ex
onerated Messrs. P. A. and E T. Wil
ox from any suspicion of making anyv
change in the ballots while they were
in their possession. Not so much as
the shade of a shadow of suspicion
attached to these young gentlemen
whose honor and integrity are unim
"Arguments were made by J. Md.
Johnson and W. J. Montgomery for
Mr. Foxworth, and by F. .D. Bryant
and G3en. W. W. Harilee for McKerall.
The arguments were concluded about
hlf past ten o'clock Friday night, and
the Council iwmediately retired to
make their decision. In a few min
utaes.they returned and the Intendant
announced that without any' preju
dice in the case, upon the evidence
given, they had decided that Mr. Fox.
worth had been elected and was en
titled to be sworn in as a Warden of
the town of Marion. On motion of J.
Md. Johnson, Esq., Mr. Foxworth was
sworni in and the great contest was
over, the suspense ended."
Taking things just as they appear
nibove, we cannot conceive of adirtier
*ind inore .disgraceful piece of work
than Ahat election. We feel proud
that the town of Marion has had the
manhood to unearth such a fraud, and
to wash the stain from her fair name,
.Bumt the damned spot will not out till

South Carolina is having a genuine
boom, and millions of dollars is being
javested in cotton factories, railroads,
and other enterprises. There is ap
parently a bright day ahead for us.
But, on the other hand, crime and

Grandma Mary Slaton, who now re
sides in Dallas, Texas, was born in
Georgia, September 7, 1785, one hun
dred and three years ago. She had
twelve children, the youngest of
whom has been a Methodist preicher'
for fifty-five years and is still living.
This old lady is said to be healthy
and active, 'and able to take care of
herself vet. Her maiden name was
Lowe. Few such remarkable cases
are on record.
A sad shooting affray occurred in
this city last Tuesday night in which
Mr. William O'Brien, of the firm of J.
W. O'Brien & Bro., was dangerously
wounded. Andy O'Brien, brother to
the wounded man, was engaged in a
war of words with a Mr. Robert F.
Moseley, when Mr. William O'Brien
grasped his brother and made an ef
fort to take him off. Just then, Mose
ley pulled a pistol and fired three
shots in quick succession at Andy, but
William O'Brien fell dangerously, if
not mortally wounded. In his ante
mortem statement Mr. O'Brien says,
he had no words with Moseley and
saw no just provocation given to just
ify the shooting. Moseley says, how
ever, he shot at Andy O'Brien in self
defence and 'regrets having hit the
Mr. O'Brien is a pious, peaceabic
man and president of the St. Joseph's
Temperance Society, which position
he has filled. or five years. He has a
wife and three children, the youngest
of which is just a month old. Mose
ley is in jail.
In clearing away the debris of the
old county jail a part of the walls top
pied in yesterday and buried beneath
its ruins, James W. Brock, and Rob
brt Lynn (white). It was with some
difficulty the men were extricated and
so terribly crushed and mangled were
they that they could scarcely stand
being carried to their homes. Their
piteous appeals for their loved ones
to be sent for, were heartrending in
the extreme. The extent of their in
juries is unknown and they are now
resting under the influence of- an
esthetics surrounded by their fami
lies and friends.
Two of the "bo-hoys" of another
town were out painting Princess
street red Wednesday night when
they were accosted by a charming
looking lass who prevailed upon them
to escort her home. After spending
a couple of hillarious hours with their
newly made acquaintance, whose win
some smiles and winning ways had
fairly caught them, they returned to
their hotel and made the discovery
that their little "wootsy-tootsy" had
lass-oed thirty-five dollars of their
loose change. A suspension of oper
ations on the part of the painters fol
lowed with one of the quietest finan
cial panics that ever pealed a pocket.
Our visitors left next morning, wiser
(and it is to be hoped) better men.

Mr. Leopold Furchgott, a member
of the firm of Kohn, Furchgott & Co.,
was married on the 17th inst., to Miss
Julia Meyerheim in New York city.
The bride is a highly educated lady'
of rare talent, having received the ad
vantage of a European as well as an
American collegiate training. The
couple are the guests of Mr. Herman
Furcgott of Charleston, at present,
but will leave for Jacksonville, Fla.,
their future home, in a few days.
Rev. C. H. Yatman, the distinguish

Mn. EnrroE: Allow, me to congratu
late you upon your return to the tri
pod. I trust you will find the seat no
less pleasant than that of a pedagogue.
In fact fact they are naturally com
bined. In both the occupant is a
teacher. The pupils in one school,
and the readers in the other, alike
look to you for instruction. The re
sponsibilities are great and too often
not fully realized; the benefits ineal
Iculable and seldom appreciated. The
privileges of both positions are often
abused and evil instead of good re
sults, May wisdom and understand

'and win the crown of success.

A Trial Justice court was lately
held at Greelevville. After the jurors
were sworn the foreman suggested to
the Justice, that in view of carryingI
concealed deadly weapons, and of re
cent disastrous events resulting there
from in courts of justice, he would do'
well to examine the parties in suit,
and not allow them to enter with such
weapons on or aibout their persons.
The request was complied with, no
weapons were found, the litigants were
in peace and friendship with each oth
er, and the court proceeded witu no
prospet of a bloody tragedy before
their eyes. Now, if thjs justice had a
right to do what he did, have not all
the judges the same right? If a judge
has a right to punish a man for inter
ruptig his court by words or gestures,
h is he not ti e right to prevent the
admission of weapons which may be
used in a moment to the destruction
of members of the court, witn<.s es,
and spectators? And having this!
right, is lie not criminally negligent
when he does not exercise it ? Sures!
in one place and at one time the laws|
of th Sta mnay bi enforced for the
prevention of crime and bloodshed, if
the judges will exercise their rights.

Mn. EITOR : The TIMEs is very
popular and has many friends up here.
Under its tormer managemuent, being
so long a contributor, I almost thought
I was one of the family. But you are
a live newspaper wan and I doubt
not but you will make it even a better
paper. I cannot forget little "Ben:"
his jovial countenance carried so much
pleasantry. I ever felt at home when
seated in his sanctum. It is hard to
break up old associations, especially
when those associations were so agree
able and filled with such delight. You
say I must write; that you are anx
ious to retain all of the TI.Es's corres

nity is shown by its progressiveuess.
Everything seems to have an upward
tendency around Panola. A tremen

with money and supplies is being put

A large area has been phmtne 1 in
oats. The fall planting looks vigor

Numbers of farmiers are planting now.
This has been an unusual winter for
small grain ; we have had no cold to
seriously damage small grain crop.
This is one reason why the oat crops
are so promising. We have had an
abundance of rain, and as a conse
quence, our roads are difficult to
travel, being boggy and full of water.
I believe up.n the whole, the public
roads are in as good condition in this

The fall trade is fairly. over, the rush
of cotton to this market has subsided
and the town relaxed into its usual

over the heavy trade that followed a

other year. It is safe to say that the
people of Clarendon are more pros.

family that it be stated that there i~s
no eviaernce of premeditation on his

The internal tax on tobacco will
doubtless go, and there ought to be a
reduction on the sugar tax. But we
can see no reason in the world wvhy
the tax on liquors should be repealed
and the g'overnment lose $56,000,000
Ithereby. What article can bear such~
a tax better than whiskey, and who
Ihas to pay it except those who con
sume it ? The same may be said of
the tax on tobacco. It is absurd to
say that the repeal of that tax is going
to bcnefit the planters, for the corsum
er foots the whole bill in that matter
as well as in the case of whiskey. To
baco sold just as high when the tax
was 32 and 25 cents as it does now
when the tax is only S cents. If the
tax is abolished altogether
does now, and will depend altogether
upon the state of the market. But
tle tobacco tax, nevertheless, is on
one of the agricultural products of
the country, and consequently there
are strong reasons why it should be
repealed, with a loss to the govern
ment of $17,000,00.0. But if we
give up the whiskey tax and the e#
tire sugar tax then any modification
of the taiff on articles of consumnp
tion will be impossible, and those who
now bear the greatest burden of op
pressive taxation will have to go with
out any relief whatever.-Lynchburg

this end, we shall require that every lesson be learned, if not iu time for ti
class recitation, then elsewhere. No real progress can be made so long a
the pupil is allowed to go on from day to day reciting only half-perfect lesson
