snagging itself so badly that it was
necessary to have it shot.
Mr. John J. Holladay, one of the

Newsy Letter from Silver.
SILVER, June 9.-I am somewhat
overwhelmed with the idea that pro
gress in more ways than one charac
terizes the present age. The build

was never more apparent than now
improvement all along the line, social
ly, religiously, and financially. Silver
is noted for its quiet demeanor.
The good ladies want to build a
chureb, and to this end they toil and
work. It was a happy omen on Sat
urday to see so many of them assem
bled at the depot, selling ice cream,
cake, &c., the proceeds to be applied
to the church. I never witnessed a
more pleasant gathering. Another
festival will be given next Saturday
afternoon, the 24th.
A Democratic club will be organ
ized here next Saturday. It is believ
ed by many that to wait till the 2nd
of August to organize would prove
disastrous. This part of the county,
as I have said before, are strong Till
manites. They say "to be forewarned
now is to be forearmd." Considera
ble discussion is indulged as to the
motives and intentions of the execu

reached by the executive committee
has strengthened the cause of Tillman.

Mr. John J. Holladay, a life-long
friend of ours, died suddenly at his
home on Thursday morning. Mr. Hol
laday was a quiet, unobtrusive citi
zen, an uncompromising Democrat, a
strong pillar in our church. He has
quietly passed away from devoted
sons and loving daughters to the bet
ter land. We mourn his loss; we
deeply sympathize with his bereaved
children, and commend them to the
source of all heavenly comfort.
Capt. W. M. Knight sustained a
considerable loss in getting his mill
and machinery burned on Thursday
night. It is said to be the work of an
incendiary. Mr. Knight had just
commenced the operation of his mill,
and the citizens generally sympathize
with him in his loss.

to-day. I suppose he is looking after
Sambo and inspecting crops.

Joseph Stuart Nettles died in
Charleston June 5th, 1890, in the
ninetieth year of his age. He was an
earnest and devoted Christian, and

was a brother of the late Rev. A. Net

three brothers and two sisters, who
have all died within the past five years
and whose average age exceeded
eighty-five. Stephen Nettles, the fath

Killed by his Brother.
A horribly sad accident occurred
ast Friday afternoon, about two miles
from T\fanning, in the household of
Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. McCall. They
nd some of their neighbors had
united in a picnic near by, and were
all having a pleasant time, when Mr.
McCall's son, Dinkins, who is about
ten years old, and had been left at
home to take care of the place and
ounger children, came running up
terribly frightened, and told his moth
er that while he was in the field some
thing terrible had happened in the
house, but he did not know what it
The parents hurried home, to find
a most horrible sight: their little four
year-old boy, Charley, whom only a
few hours before they had left well
and happy, was lying on the floor,
struggling in agony, one side of his
head torn away, and his finger nails
worn off tearing on the floor. A gun
near by told the sad story. Surgical
aid was procured as soon as possible,
but to no purpose, and in a few hours
the little fellow died.
An effort was made to get Dinkins
to tell how the accident happened,
but for some time he would not, say
ing at first that it occurred while, he
was in the field, and then that the
little fellow, had shot himself. Finally
by much persuasion from his mother,
and amidst the deepest sobs and grief'
on his part, he told them. He had
taken a small gun in the house to
play with, and thinking it was not
loaded, had pointed it at his little
brother, telling him he was going to
shoot. Having no caps, he got a box
of matches, and used the heads on
the tube. The little fellow was sit
ting on the floor, laughing and whit
tling with a knife, when Dinkins, but
a few feet away, aimed the fatal shot
at the little fellow's head. The trig
ger wvas pulled, and one side of his
head was shot away.
An inquest was held Saturday, and
a verdict of accidental death was ren
dered by the coroner's jury.
Set on Fire by Lightning.
Manning was visited yesterday af
ternoon by a cloud burst, and for an
hour the rain poured in torrents. yust
about the time the rain began, light
ning struck the stables in rear of B.
A. Walker's store, setting them on
fire. These stables were very low,
and it is a surprise the lightning did
not strike some higher object. Mr.
Walker's horse was in the stable at
the time, but was not hurt. Although
the rain was pouring, yet in a few
minutes a large flame was burning
the stables. Several went in the rain
to the fire, and a lot of salt, hides,
etc., stored in one of the rooms, was
saved. It wvas a peculiar sight to see
a great flame burning so fiercely in a
deluging rain storm. Adjoining fences
aid stables were torn down, and in a
half hour the fire was under control.

Manning would have it to be. I noticed
in the Xes anid ier of June 4th
an article written, as I take it, for the
purpose of deluding those who are
not up with political trickery of the
paesent time. The author of that
communication is another one of our
dreamers, and I think it is very prob
able that he had two or three drinks
of very bad liquor to have made him
dream such an untruthful dream, for
I don't see how any man who has
eyes to see and ears to hear, could
write such an article as that, meaning
it as a correct report. I, as well as a
great many others, were in Manning
that very day and if I know anything
at all it was just to the reverse, for I
am sure and I am perfectly conscien
tious when I make the assertion, that
Tillman has at least three-fourths if
not four fifths of the voting strength
of Clarendon county. This reporter
seems to think that the stand taken
by the gentlemen whom he mention
ed in his article signified a good deal.
So it may, but there are others in the
county whose stand may signify a lit
tle something too. We don't propose
to sneeze at the sniffing of snuff every
time. The names of the gentlemen
that he mentioned represent probably
at least half of the opposition to Till
man in this county. We are all living,
as I think, in a land of liberty. These
gentlemen have a right to their opin
ion, and we have a right to ours.
I notice another article in the Co-,
lumbia Rcgister, copied from some
Atlanta paper, claiming that Tillman
ism is bound to split the Democratic
party. Now I would like to call par
ticular attention to this point. Who
is it that is having so much to say
about the split., if it is not the Anti
Tillmauites? We have always said
and continue to say tuat we will abide
by the decision of the regular nomi
nating convention; now then, who is
it that is thinking so much about the
split in the party if it is not the Antis
and political tricksters? These are
the men we fear that are going to
make the split; these are the men
who we think will Fdraw off and run
an intkpendent ticket, and put in a
bid for the negro vote. Now, gentle
man, all we want is fair play. I call
the attention of the Tillmanites to a
trick of the Antis: They are slipping
around trying to dishearten the Till
manites by asserting that Tillman is
losing ground every day. ,Don't pay
any attention to this, boys; just go
ahead and do your best, and we will
show them where they are in Septem
ber. It is rot men that we are fight
ing for now: it is a principle; it is
measures. PANO.A FAn.MER.

The Tillmanites assert that they consti
tute 80 per cent. of the party; the best judges
of polities in the State, connected with the
opposition to him, concede Tillman's
strength to be about 60 per cent. of the Dem
It would look, then, as if Tillman wa
sure of winning in any emergency; but that
is not the case, for in politics, as in war,
organization counts as well &s numbers.
To win, Tillman's forces must be suffic
iently strong in the differert counties and
sufficiently well Ied to make it too danger
ons a game to have anything but a fair,
square deal at the primaries.
The plan of campaign against him is now
defined, and is to trot out as mmy candi
dates as possible, and to draw to them as
devoted a following as personal popularity
and local pride may allow; then in the con
vention, when erhusiasm for the man of
their choice has been excited to a pitch, by
every artifice which the opposition can bring
to bear upon the Anti-Tillman crowd, the
mass will be stampeded to some man, prob
bly with such a character as to have never
excited any enmities.
The galleries, on the occasion of the con
vention, will be packed with a crowd bitter
ly hostile to Tillman, and, if there are any
timid men for him, they may be influenced
by the storm of cheers which will perpetu
ally punctuate every peroration against
Tillian's side of the question.
All during the convention at odd inter
vals the chairman will probiably threaten to
clear the galleries, but the chances are that
the whoop of the opposition will continue
throughout the proceedings.
An accurate knowledge of parliamentary
procedure wvill be no contemptible aid to the
opposition, and it will be found that wvhen
ever the instructions of the executive com
mittee may be evaded with success, they
will be, while they will assuredly be quoted
against Tlman wvhenever they suit.
Above all money will, in all probability,
be spent lavishly, and money is a powerful
factor in polities, fo'r, while it is not proba
ble that any individual will prowl about the
State, distributing greenbacks, yet there are
a thousand ways in which the influence of
money can be made to tell in politics.
Let no friend of Tillman imagine then1
that he will have a walkover, for he has
callenged a powerful organization to light
for its existence, and no fight is as desperate
as that which is for existence.
Every candidate w~ho comes out for the
nomination comes out tirst and forenmcst as
an Anti-'Tillman candidate. We repeat,
whether hc comes from up-country or lowv
country, whether he be lawyer, farmuer, or
doctor, he comes at "Old Guard's" suggest
ion, carrying a dagger for Tillman.
Whe-ther', then, the candidate is the Doc
tor Mauldin of Greenville, the Lawyer Earle
of' Sumter, or the Farmer Bratton of Fair
field, every vote cast for any of them is a
vote cast to perpetuate the existing state of
affairs and against a change.
It' by any accident or neglect, then, Till
man should be beaten in September, it will
be idle to dream of any attempt at a change
for at least ten years.
WHAT IT COSTS
Must b~e carefully considered by the great
majority of people, in buying even necessi
ties of life. Hood's Sarsaparilla commends
itself with special force to the great middle
classes, because it combines economy with
great medicinal power. It is the only medi
cine of which can truly be said "100 Doses
One Dollai'," and a bottle taken according
to directions will average to last a month.
Bargains at M. Levi's.
M, Levi has a tremendous stock of
ladies', gents', and children's shoes
which he proposes to sell at very low
figures in order to unload.
His stock of hats, clothing, and dry
goods cannot be excelled by any gen

He will sell a fine assortment of
dicevs, which consists of a collar,
pair ~of cuffs, and shirt front, for 30
cents, former price 50 cents.
The finest lot of neck ties and cra

ten cents up to 75 cents, former
prices from 25 cents to $1.25.
A fine lot of bicycle shirts of all
