It is reported that the negroes had a

ed meeting there was several speakers,
among whom it is said was Robert A. Stew
art, of this place. A correspondent of the
Columbia State from Oakland, a province
in the republic of the Fork said that an op
position ticket would be put out in the
general election in this county. He
seemed to be very confident about the mat
tr. This correspondent may have the ear
of the leaders who met at Liberty Hill re
eently. If our memory is not djficient, the
Fork has not given the regular Democratic
ticket a majority since 1889. and inay
give an opposition ticket considerable sup.
prt this year. However, the Fork is not
the whole of the county, and Liberty Hill
can be thrown in for good measure, and
hen the regular nominated Democratic
ticket will win with a beautiful majority.
BLOCKING THE SIDEWALKS.
Profane Language Used by Street
The town council's attention is called to
the number of idlers that loiter about the
street corners and block up the sidewalk
on Boyce street about the business houses.
It is very often the case that ladies will
not attempt to pass through this crowd of
idlers when they want to do shopping in
some of the stores. Then some of
these loiterers, if not blocking the side
walk, are leaning against the fences or
store-fronts, and indulge in all kinds of
oaths and language unfit for ladies and
children to hear ; besides that they run in
and out of alley-ways - some of them
playing and some of them throwing bricks,
bottlea and other missiles.
Last Satuiday one of them threw a bottle
from out of an alley, which came very
near doing serious damage to a gentleman
and his horse.

Captain George Fiagg Trescott Dies
at His Home in Manning.
Captain George Flagg Trescott, the ven
erable father of W. A. Trescott, died last
Monday at his son's residence in Manning
in the eightieth yaar of his age.
Captain Trescott was born in Charleston
in the year 1816. and from early life fol
loed the sea. He had traveled all over
the globe. Before the war, and for many
years, he held the position of United
States inspector at the Charleston custom
house. When the war broke out he be
sought the occupation of his life and
entered the service of the Confederacy to
run the blockade out of Charleston harbor,
and while thus engaged he was captured
and taken to Fort Wvarren in Boston har
br, and there held prisoner twenty-nine
After the war he was made chairman of
the board of pilots for Charleston harbor.
Captain Trescott came to Manning with
his son William, with whom he lived about
ten years ago. His years of experience as
a ailor made hien an entertaining talker,
and he made friends with those who
came in contact with him. He was a de
voted husband and parent, a good citizen
and surrounded by an affectionate family.
The funeral took place yesterday. Rev.
James McDowell conducted the services at
the house, after which he was interred in
the Manning cemetery.
What causes bad dreams is a question
that has never been satisfactorily answered,
but in nine cases out of ten frightful
dreams are the result of imperfect diges
tion, which a few doses of Ayer's Sarsa
parilla will sffectually remedy. Don't de
lay-try it to-day.

mystery of the murderof 3. O .Carson is
to be cleared awa~ and a young man

may be apprehended, as warrants have
been issued for their arrest.
The klling is one of the blackest
that has ever occurred in this county
and the direct cause which led to the
deed is far more black thau the crime.
It is rumored that Mrs. Carson and
Green have been on intimate terms for
some time and that Green became jeal

get him out of his way. It is said that
the suicide theory is all a myth and
that it was arranged to shield the

that J. B. Pain, a white man, has con

Green, her paramour, did the killing.
Green promised Pain $100 not to inform
on him. Pain, Mrs. Carson and Green
have been arrested and lodged in the
Spartanburg jail. It was with difficul

riated mob from lynching the prisoners
on the way to jail.

Last Thursday night, or rather Friday
morning, between ane and two o'clock, Mr.
Zack Godbolt was returning home from a
trip into Salem, and when he was about
the ccnter of the causeway near Manning
he was stopped by what he took to be one
white man and two negroes. The white
nian was 'the leader and did the talking.
Mr. Godbolt was unarmed and, cf course,
when ordered to halt, he did so. The
negroes got into his vehicle and examined
everything he had, but the only thing they
took was a melon. There was corn and
other things in the wagon.
The white man remained on the ground
uttering some words which 'Mr. Godbolt
did not understand as he is very hard o
hearing, but fiom the gestures of the n:an
be took it for gnated that he was being
threatened. Whtn the gang saw no money
or .anything else they wanted they pulled
out and left.
