The new council held their first
meeting since their installation, Mon
day night. The intendant and all the
wardens were present. After the
adoption of the minutes of their pre
vious meeting, the newly elected clerk
presented his bond, which was duly
approved. Considerable business was
transacted in the nature of devising
plans by which members of council
might understand each other, and
work together harmoniously for the
welfare of the town.
A board of health was elected, con
sisting of Dr. W. E. Brown, S. A.
Nettles, and B. A. Johnson.
Council instructed the clerk to look
i into several matters and report same
at the next meeting; among which to
inform himself on all of the ordi
nances relating to the closing of stores
on Sunday, and to obnoxious persons
loitering about the streets at night.
They decided to open a new street
in the rear of the lots known as "jail
lots." They appointed a committee to
confer with the property owners to
see if a street could not be opened to
the depot, running through lands of
Mrs. W. A. Barfield and others. An
other committee was appointed to
look into the matter of procuring a
site for a town hall, and the advisabil
ity of building said hall.
Council passed a very important or
dinance, prohibiting the erection of
any wooden building within 300 feet
of the court house fence, without a
special written permit. This ordi
nance will have a good effect, as it
will give the council the right to know
what kind of a wooden structure a
person contemplates building, and if
hey think it to the best interest of the
town, to refuse to grant a permit.
This council has started out with a
determination of giving the citizens a
progressive administration, and if we
are not greatly mistaken they will
soon have our town on the road to
compete with other growing towns.
A Compromise With the Pinewood Saf
R. 0. Purdy, Esq., of the Sumter bar rep
resenting the Atlantic Coast Line, was in
town Monday, and by appointment met Mr.
James D. Childers, whose wife was killed
at Lhe Pinewood railroad accident on the
12th inst., and Mr. Nelson Griffin, whose
little son Shuford was so badly hurt in the
Mr. Griffin, in accordance with an agree
ment to compromise, applied to the Judge
of Probate for letters of guardianship, which
were granted, whereupon he receipted to Mr.
Purdy for two thousand dollars the sum he
had agreed to accept against all
damages done him and his son. One half
of this amount was awarded to the father,
and the other half to the son. Mr. Griffin
says that the railroad company have done
all in their power to alleviate his sufferings
and treated him with great consideration.
Mr. Childers in accordance with his com
promise agreement made application for
letters of administration which will be
granted on the 8th day of May, and as soon
as he qualifies the bank cf Manning is au
thorized to pay him the sum of two thou
sand five hundred dollars, whereupon he
will sign areceipt against the damages done
him in the taking away the life of his wife.
The railroad company will also pay all
expenses incurred by these parties, in con
sequence of the accidents.
Political Meeting in Salem.
Mr. E. S. Kennedy was in town
last Friday, chock full of emthusiasm
and gratification at the result of the
convention held in Columbia last
month. He says that he is heart and
soul in favor of endorsing the "sug
gestion" and the whole platform
adopted at the convention, and that
the people of Salem are all, like him
self, thoroughly aroused and will con
tinue to be so until news i-eaches
them that Tillman has received the
nomination for governor. He also in
formed us that a citizens' public meet
ing will be held at the Hicks store,
near New Zion church, Saturday, April
26th, for the purpose of discussing
the political situation and to adopt
resolutions endorsing every step tak
en by the Farmers' Convention. The
committee in charge of this meeting
are Dr. I. M. Woods, W. D. McFad
din, E. S. Kennedy, W. 3. Turbeville,
A. J. Castine, and S. C. Turbeville.
The general public is invited, and
with the above named committee to
manage things a pleasant time may
be looked for. Every arrangement
will be made to make the meeting
one of enthusiasm and jollification,
and speeches, chickens, barbecues,
and other good things will be on the
program. Those that have had the
pleasure of attending large gatherings
in Salem can understand what will be
done, and no people know how to en
tertain and have a big time better
than the people of Salem.
This is to be the opening political
meeting in the campaign for this coun
ty, and a large crowd will be there to
shake the hand of the smiling candi
date, who would not for any consider
ation absent himself on this day.

Having become convinced from ob

persons in the county who are not now
taking the MANNxG TDMs simply be
cause they are unacquainted with its
many merits, and that if they once
contracted the habit of looking for
ward to their county paper every
week, they would not be able to do
without it, we have determined to
send out the paper on a "trial trip" at
special rates To all subscribers not
now on our list who will pay us the
sum of FIFTY CENTS in advance,
we will send the M.&ssma TIMss from
the date of said payment until Nov.
15, 1890. As the regular price of the

seen that this offer, now made solely
for the purpose above mentioned, is
indeed a generous one. The date of
expiration, Nov. 15th, is named in
order that these special subscribers,
should they decide to discontinue at
this time, will be able to obtain any
way the full election news, for it must
not be forgotten that 1890 will doubt

to enumerate at this time, one of the

Col. and Mrs Hudgins have felt proud last
night, as they received the congratulations
of the many friends who had been invited
to celebrate the joyous occasion. Everybody
in Foreston had been invited, and every
one who could possibly attend was there.
Col. Hudgins was the happiest person there,
and his every action and look gave evidence
that he felt as young and happy as he had
fifty years before. No pains or expense
had been spared to make the pleasures of
the evening befitting the occasion. Every
room in the house was thrown open to the
guests, and chinese lanterns lighted up the
yard. Song and music and laughter and
good will prevailed everywhere. All had
gone there expecting a most enjoyable ocea
sion and none were disappointed. Three
long tables were literally loaded down with
all the delicacies and tropical fruits the
market would afford, and the choicest wines
were free to all. All was joy and mirth.
The happy couple were recipients of a
number of valuable presents.
Col. Hudgins is a native of Union county,
S. C.; Mrs. Hudgins, of Mt. Vernon, Maine.
They have two sons, both living: one is in
business in Foreston; the other in Ken
During the evening all the guests assem
bled in the main parlor, and Rev. J. C. Bis
sell made a short speech and a prayer. At
ter supper as all were about to depart, at
the request of Col. Hudgins, all again as
sembled in the parlor and joined in the
song, "God be with you till we meet again."
This song was well rendered, and was beau
tifully appropriate and touching.
