An Old Colored Woman in Salem.
Salem claims the oldest inhabitant in the
county. Fannie Brand, who lives near New
Zion, being considerably older than a hun
dred years. Her great grand son, Tim
Baker, with whom she is now living, is for
ty-fve years old.
She is described as light brown colored,
walks erect, talks splendidly, and appears
to be good for twenty years yet. She is not
less than one hnndred and five years old,
according to calculations worked up by
Billy Brand, but it is confidently believed
that she is considerably older than that.
She was born in North Carolina, and
when a young girl was carried by her mas
ter, a Mr. Raspberry, to New Orleans, where
she remained some time. She remembers
a war and seeing soldiers dressed in red
and riding fine horses, but does not recol
lect what war it was. While in New Or
leans her young mistress, Elvey Raspberry,
was married to John Brand. Fannie was
given to the young bride, and shortly after
wards Mr. and Mrs. Brand moved to South
Carolina, carrying Fannie, who continued to,
live with the Brand family to the close of
the war, when she went to Charleston,
where she staid till about four years .go.
During her stay in Charleston she was for
the most of the time an inmate of the poor
John Brand above mentioned was the
father of Billy Brand, who died about fif
teen years ago at an advanced age.

of Manning, preached an eloquent sermon

Read This Offer.
Having become convinced from ob
servation that there are many
persons in the county who are not now
taking the Mi.XN TIES 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 Mmum TDrES from
the date of said payment until Nov.
15, 1890. As the regular price of the
paper is $1.50 per annum, it will be
seen that this offer, now rmade 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
less prove, for reasons too numerous
to enumerate at this time, one of the
most important election years which
has been known in South Carolina
since the war.
Str o, June 2.-We have been hav
ing more rain the last week than was want
ed by those that had grass in their crops.
but if we can have a few days dry weather
the farmers will catch up again.
The game of ball between the Henpecks
and the Dudes on last Friday evening was
attended by a good large crowd and enjoyed
by all. There was some good playing
though the players were not in practice.
The henpecked nine were: J. C. Lanham,
S. Dingle, Joe Broadway, Will Sparks, Press
Brock, Sam Sparks, P. G. Bowman, Charley
Mason, and Quince Mathis. The Dude

21 to 22 in favor of the Dudes.
The ice cream festival at Maj. Briggs's the
same evening was very pleasant and profit
able. Net proceeds about sixty dollars.
Childrens' day at the Presbyterian church
was attended by a large crowd, and the pro
gram was very entertaining. The music
was fine, led by Mrs. R. R. Briggs. Mr.
Richards, the evangelist, delivered an ex
cellent and appropriate address. Dr. Bar
gess, the superintendent, conducted the ex
ercises and gave the children a nico little
talk at the closing of the exercises. Mr.

The Unveiling at Richmond.
RiCHMOxD, V.., May 29, 1890.
1litor Moiwwj Zines: --According to prom
ise I write yon from the capital of the Con
federacy. I left Manning Tuesday the 27th,
and wvent to Greeleyville to spend a day
with wy daughter, came back next morning
on the train and net the boys from Man
ning, arrived at Simter 9.40 A. M.., arranged
for the trip through the day, and lett Sui
ter 6.30 r. .m. for Richmond. Our party
consisted of 2 in nunber, 12 fronm Claren
don and l6 fron Sumter. The veterans
from Clarendon we-re S. J. Bowman, M.
Levi, A. M. Urailsford, T. A. Bradham, and
your humble servant: sons of veterans, .
H. Rigby, W. T. Wilder, B. A. Johnson, T.
J. Hogan, J. 1I. Lescne, and Dr. W. M.
Brockinton. After a long ride we arrived
in this City about 8 A. w., 29th.
Now, then, I do not know wyhere to begin:
people from everywhere, all ages and aIl
colors. Our crowd was met by the commit
tee of veterans from Lee Camp, No. 1, cs
corted to a large dining room on Main street,
No. 1213, where over 3,000 persons were fed
during the morning. Everything a hungry
man wished for was before us, and I assure
you, Mr. Editor, our crowd "took the cake."
After eating we seattered and commenced
to take in the city. Your scribe soon found
a boarding house for himself and several
others on North Seventh St, No. 109, where
we were well cared for during our stay of
three days. After a bath I proceeded to the
var residence of Gen. Lee on Franklin St.,
where I found out the whole line of march
would pass on their way to the statue, and
took position. It took the crowd just two
hours and fitteen minutes to pass, steadily
moving forward. I recognized a number of
old leaders in the column: first the great
e ivalry leader, Fitzhugh Lee, whose hand
I had the pleasure of shaking; next our own
Wade Hampton; then Jos. E. Johnson, Juba'
Early, Longstreet, Ransom, and Bradley T.
Johnson of Maryland. When Gen. John
son came in sight I announced his name,
whereupon cheer after cheer went up for
him, he with his smiling faee, hat in hand,
bowing on every side as he passed. When I
said, "South Carolina thanks you for your
help in '76," he bowed again and passed on.
I cannot describe the unveiling, 75,000 to
100,000 people present, cheering and
whooping, old soldiers with their tattered
fiags, and uniforms of gray with gold lace
trimmings iore than a quarter of a century
old with bullet holes and blood stains on
and through them: what a sight! You could
see hundreds of one-legged and one-armed
men, and thousands of others with honora
ble scars received in battle, fighting for
what thry believed, and still believe, was
right; some of them having traveled as far
as 4,000 miles to get here.
Alter the speech by Col. Anderson, of Va.,
the old hero, Gen. Jos. E. Johnson, unveil
ed the grand monument erected to the great
est man that the world has ever produced.
As the veil was removed such a yell wentup
as will never be heard again in this or any
other country. A sham battle was then
fought on the field just in rear of the statue.
The cavalry charged the artillery, defended
by the infantry, and I assure you, Mr. Ed
itor, it looked natural with their great com
mander looking down upon them. After
the fight we felt like Richmond had been
recaptured, and the Confederacy restored;
so much so that a gentleman from Boston
inquired for the next train to the United
States! About the hospitality of the city,
grand and superb. The like was never
equalled is the only way I can express it:
plenty to eat, cigars to smole without
price pressed upon you from ever~y side, no
liquor however. I have only seen one drunk
man in this vast crowd. At night grand
display of fireworks, but your scribe was too
tired to attend, and is now engaged in pen
ning you these lines.
Friday morning. May 30th: City still
crowded; troops marching: hands play ing
"Dixie," "Bonnie Blue Flag," "My Mary
land," etc., can be heard on every side. I
approached an old veteran from Texas with
his tattered flag, and took him by the hand,
when lie shouted, "South Carolina ! God
bless you, and God bless everybody !" with
tears running down his face he could utter
nothing more. In the afternoon I went to
Hollywood, to the decoration of the soldiers'
graves. Great crowd, 70,000 or more pres
ent. A fter the tender hand of woman had
placed flowers upon the graves, many of
them unknown, the crowd gatheried around
the speakers' stand to hear th(' speeches.
There were only eight persons on the stage:
Dr. Hoge, of Richmond, who made the
opening prayer; Gov. Fowle, of North Car
jolina; Fitzhiugh Lec, of Va.; Gov. 3I'cin
ney, of Ya., chairman of the meeting; and
good old Dr. Minnegerode, of the Episcopal
church, who was President Davis's ana Gen.
Lee's pastor, while in Riichmond; Misses
Mildred and Mary Lee, daughters of Gen.
RI. E. Lee; Mrs. Fitzhugh Lee; and Mrs.
Gov'. Mclinuney. Gov. Fow'lc made the Iirst
speech. I discovered in this eff'ort of his
that there were "silver tongued orators" in
other States as well as South Carolina. Next
Fiizhugh Lee, who I believe received more
honor and attention than any other man at
thisu great gathering. After his speech,
which was grand and sublime, the ci'owd
called for Hioge ! Iloge ! Hoge ! Good old
Dr. Hoge certainly has a warm place in the
hearts of the Richmond people. He tried
to excuse himself, but they continued to
call, when he came forward and made the
grandest speech of the occasion, lie said
some men can dlescr'ibe histoi'y, other rmen
nr'rke history, but in his friend, Fitzhugh
Lee, we had a man who had made history
and who could also describe history. He
further said that lhe had great love for the
Confederate soldiers: without great follow
er's there never could have been great lead.

I would like to go on, but this article is

What Tillmanism Is.
EDITOn MArINac Trzs:-After having
written one or two articles for your estima
ble paperin regard to Tillman and Tilluan
ism I now propose to try to define or explain
what Tillmanism means. I consider that it
means more than I can very well command
language to explain: It means freedom and
libprty. It means that each and every one
of us should exercise our own judgment
and not be lead astray by these professional
politicians, but to stand square up to the
man or men who espouse or propose to ad
vance the agricultural interest, as well as all
other interests of the State, and to help us
io free ourelves from ring rule and bossism,
for there is ring rule in South Carolina be
yond a doubt. It is a fact that can be proven
oy history; and if there is any fairness o
justice in this kind of a government I would
like to know wherein it comes, for we all
pay our money in the way of taxes, and why
n t one man have as fair chance as another?
Put here is where the trouble comes in, my
f.iends. A great many people imagine that
bcause their forefathers held some position
ii the county or State that they must neces
snrily have an office too, regardless of their
qualifications. But I do not hold with any
such presumption, for presumption it is,
and we, the people of Clarendon county, as
well as of the State, should put our foot
down upon it and stamp it into the earth if
possible, for we are all free and we propose
to do as we see fit.
Therefore I advise you friends, one and
all, to keep your eyes open to the workings
of politics, especially during this campaigu.
Don't allow yourselves to be duped or mis
led by these old politicians, who are on the
fence and have been for sometime; and why
are they there? Simply to wait to see what
we people of the country are going to work
up out of this matter. My advice, friends,
is when they get down let them stay down.
The laborer is worthy of his hire. I claim
that Capt. Tillman has labored and labored
faithfully, and he, as well as any other man
who has done likewise, should have his re
ward. Some say that Tillman is rather
harsh; others say he is an extremist: well
I'll admit Capt. Tillman has said some
pretty hard things, but it seems that so far
he has been able to give proof for all that
he has asserted. Some say, again, that he
has accused all of the State officials of being
corrupt. If Capt. Tillman bas ever made
use of any such assertions I never have seen
them in print. Others say that his accusa
tion amounts to the same thing when he
says that a continuance in office breeds cor
ruption. I consider that part of his declar
ation as facts beyond a doubt, for I think we
can prove that, in nearly all cases, a contin
uance in office will breed corruption. This
position is sustained by modern, as well
as by ancient history. Glance back to the
ancient and even more modern rulings of
the kings and queens, and when was there
ever a more corrupt people? And what
made them corrupt if it was not ring rule
aid bossism handed down from generation
to generation ? These are facts, friends,
beyond a doubt; and this is the time and
this is the year for us to shake off the yoke
of ring rule and bossism in old South Caro
lina. Therefore, work, for the night is com
ing when man's work is done.
Farmers, Stand Together.
Enrron MANNING Trnms:--There seems to
be a good deal of excitement over the sug
gestion of Capt. Tillman for governor. I
would like to ask if 80 per cent. of the vot
ing people want Mr. Tillman for governor
does it not seem that the other 20 per cent.
could put up with him one term ? No; there
are some that had rather be under negro
rule than see the farming class of people get
into possession of the reins of government.
All this ridicule and abuse that is being
heaped upon Tillman is not because they
think that he is so unfit for that position,
but it's simply because he has been sug
gested by the farmers. It would have been
the same thing had it been any other man.
They claim that we are splitting the party by
simply suggesting a candidate: why if that
will split the party there must be a thin
place in it. Are we going to have a State
I see the Anti-Tillmnan faction at their last
conference are in favor of having two other
gentlemen announce themselves candidates
for governor. W'e have no objection: then
we will see who the choice of the people is.
If we are to have a State primary to decide
the candidate for the September convention
that will give us a chance to make our choice
--what we have been wanting for a long
time. I see a gentleman of Marion has of
fered to bet fif ty dollars that Tillman will
not be the next governor; also, to bet fifty
dollars that Tillman will not carry Marion
county. We do not propose to carry the
farmers' movement so far as betting or gam
bling. We have opened the fight: now we
must work with all our might.
It has been said that the farmers' move
ment would not avail anything because the
farmers will not stick together, and that
they might start anything they choose but
cannot earry- it out. Now let me say to you,
brother farmers, let this be one of the times
that you stand firm to your principle, for if
we bolt this time we had about as well give
it up for the confidence in us will be forever
blasted. Let's put good level-headed farm
ers in the field for senators and members of
the legislature and then elect them, for that
is where the relief must come. If we sim
ply elect Mr. Tillman Governor, that alone
cannot and wvill not bencfit us much as he
can only execute the laws that are made by
the legislature. If we should elect Mr. Till
man governor and cannot perceive any par
ticular benefit during the first term of office.
do not even then become disheartened but
strive the harder to put the right men in all
the offices: then the relief will come.

Enrron MArsox TnZms:-I lend this
feeble pen in expression of some of my
honest convictionse as regards our political
situation. There is great opposition to the
farmiers' reform movement, and many are
shooting ostensibly at Capt. Tillman, mea'a
lug though to down the reform movement,
but which will, however, succeed sooner or
later. Now while Capt. Tillman may not
fill our bill altogether, to whom do wve owe
so much ? Besides, lhe is the suggestion of
the Farmers' Association, and unless the As
sociation means nothing wve arc bound to
take notice of its recommendations. Never
go Lack on Tillman at this late time of the
Ncw it the reformers wish to elect a can
didate for the next term, and being as I be
lieve in the majority and constantly in
creasing, I do think it out of place for the
opposition to make such strenuous efforts
to defeat our man, and I understand that
they will not lea':e a stone unturned to de
feat us "Tillmianites" as they choose to call
us. There is little wonder at the State of
ficials and their numerous clerks, for they
have been enjoying a good time, working
indoors and not allowing either wind or sun
to strike their fair complexions, besides be
ing mighty well paid. Bu:t for some of our
leading men and papers to take such a stan d
against a majority of the people is certainly
unaccountable. I don't think Hampton
will allow himself to be trapped in this dlow
It strikes me if the legislature would re
duce the salaries of many (f our officials
there would be less contention for the places.
We wvant an economical govern menit run on
the very least expensg -at is consistent
with the diguiity of .: tate, taxing our
people only for th:L, which is absolutely
necessary. Look at the style in which ma:iy
of our oflicers andl their clerks live. Com
pare it with that of the hard working farm
er, his threadbare clothes and taned skin,
living on only bacon andil corni bread, not
actually able to educate his ch ildren. I know
of soame who lived in no more comfort than
we farmers before they were given the places
which they asked of the people. But now,
oh ! the diffehrenee. I can't see why any of
these positions should pay more than nee
essary to a comfortable living.
Hoping that the cunpaign will end in a
more quiet way than the aigns now indicate,
