TIlE TALLER KID.
The Columbia Record of last Sat
urday, in about a column editorial,
gives vent to some groans and grunts
and in endeavoring to show how
weak our defense of Governor Eller
be was, it gives the public a song and
- dance on matters irrelevant to the
subject, and it tries to lead its read
ers off, that they may not have an in
telligent idea as to the nature of the
defense we made of the Governor.
The Record says, " 'My Dear Ap
pelt' rushes to the defense of Gover
nor Ellerbe. The i'ecord has no ob
jection, for it would be pleased if a
clean bill of health could be made out
for the Chief Executive." THE TnES
will always be found endeavoring to
hold up the bands of any official who
is performing the duties of his office
honestly. When we see newspapers
taking advantage of every occurrence
to make political capital against an
official for no other reason than some
private spleen we feel it a duty to e:
pose their hypocrisy, if we can. It
would not teke a wise man to see that
some personal matter actuates the
nagging editorials against Governor
Ellerbe in the Record. We do not
think the public has any desire to
know what th'tt personal matter is, as
it has "iroubles of its own."
The Record is welcome to all the
glory it finds in dragging Jobhn Gary
Evans into its editorial- and our sup
port of him in 1890. We did sup
port Mr. Evans for the United States
Senate against Judge Earle and gave
him-a hearty support then, and would
have done so again had not a person
al filend entered the race against1
him, because we did not believe there
was any truth in the charges of cor
raption that were made against him.
Mr. Evans represented what we re
-gatrded Reform principles and Judge
Earle did not. This year when John
L. McLaurin entered the race we
gave him our support against Evans
and we would have given him that
support against any man in South
Carolina. Mr. Evans professed to
scorn the tactics of those who opposed
him in 1896 and undertook to win
sympathy for himself by reminding
the people that he was defeated by
falsehood. He ~was defeated by' un
fair methods, we believe, but when he
resorted to the same methods he dE
stroyed wvhat good there was in his
plea. He went upon the stump and
slandered Col. W. A. Neal iu an out
rageous manner and it was for this
that we repudiated him. The editor
of the Record may be a noble "dog,"
and we are glad to see that he, at
least, is proud of being a dog that
'pulled down the stag;" that is the
kind of pulling he does, is it? It is
well he informed us, for wve might
have mistaken him for the kind that
nulls down hen nests or the kind that
pulls the legs of prominent men.
The editor of the Record must
have borrowed a feather to tickle
himself into the idea that he had any
influence in the Sixth District and he
displays a powerful lot of cheek or a
mountain of ignorance when he at
tempts to create the impression that
he is a "kingmaker." But as a mat
ter of fact THE MAINCG TIES sup
ported Hon. J. E. Ellerbe against a
half dozen other candidates and the
people of Clarendon endorsed the
candidate of THE TIMES by giving
him 75 per cent. of the votcs and by
giving Candidate Norton less than 10
per cent. Other counties did bet ter
for Mr. Norton and our- caudidat~
failed to get into the second race.
The iight then came between Norton
and Johrnston and Claiendon gave
Norton her vote. THE TIMrxs, in ac
cordance with its promise, was "hands
off' in the second race. For ibe in
formaion of the Record we will state
that our choice only fell short of a
few votes of getting into the second
race and these few and more were
lost to him in this countyv on :account
of iWO funerals which k-ept molre!!,a

ATLANTA, Nov. 22.-Mr. John Ryan,

one of the richest and most widely
known men in the south, died at his

Mr. Ryan made a great success as a
business man in Atlanta, and up to his
retirement his name was as well known
in the great commercial centers of the
country as that of any man in the
south. For 40 years he was engaged
in the-dry goods business on Whitehall

A SHOOTING IN ATLANTA,
To Men Probably F'atally Wounded by
an Outraged Husband.
ATLmT, Nov. 22.-W. A. Sharpton,
a switchman for the Southern railroad,
living in BeJlwood, surrendered himself
to the police after having shot and
probably fatally wounded Ralph Gibson
and Henry Joyner, two white men em
ployed as operatives in the Exposition
cotton mill. Sharpton's wife was the
cause of the bloody affair. He was
jealous of Gibson and went gunning for
him and in the fusilade Joyner was ac
Gibson has four bullets in his body and
may die at any time. Joyner is not
badly wounded and will in all proba
bility recover, though being wounded
in the face by the discharge from a shot
gun, he will be horribly disfigured.
Sometime ago Sharpton was a patient
at the Grady hospital. having been sent
there to have his head dressed after be
ing hit by a negro with a rock. WVhen
there he claims Gibson played the de
voted to his wife and when he got out
he warned him to let her alone, but
Gibson did not heed the warning, al
though it was repeated at the muzzle of
Sharpton and his wife moved to a dif
ferent boardinghouse and Gibson fol
lowed. Several days ago the husband
asked the mill boss to discharge his
wife, so he could get her to leave town
with him. While out walking with her
in Belwood they met Gibson, who com
menced to upbraid Sharpton for his con
duct in asking for his wife's dismissal
from the mill.
At this Sharpton, who said he had
warned Gibson never to speak to him,
drew his pistol and emptied it at Gib
son. Three bullets struck him. Then
he ran to his brother-in-law's store and
getting a shotgun came back and fired
again at Gibson, and this time Joyner,.
a bystander, was also shot.

CONVICTS TO RAISE RICE.
The Latest scheme of the North Carolina
RALEIGH, Nov. 20.-The penitentiary
directors desire to employ convicts at
Navassa rice plantation, near Wilmning
ton, provided it can be operated in con
nection with the state convict camp at
the phosphate mines at Castle Hayne.
The penitentiary has bought the phos
phate property. The Navassa company
wishes to secure the entire output.
It is possible that some bottom lands
in Bladen county will also be used for
rice culture, an option having been se
cured en 1.500 acres there, but this also
is conditioned upon the practicability
of operating with the Castle Hayne
camp as a base. A 20J-acre farm ad
joining the penitentiary. belonging to
the Boylan family, is leased and is now
being put in cultivation.
The contract with S. P. Hildebrand
of Cohoes, N. Y, to furnish him con
victs to make shirts in the prison is
signed. He is to pay 24 cents a dozen
for the labor on the shirts.

Fifteen-Year-Old Lad Is Crushed Almost
WELBORN. Fla., Nov. 20.-News has
just been received in this place of a
shocking accident at the cotton ginning
establishment of T. J. Summeral, who
lives near Falling Creek.
While all the workmen were busy
packing cotton in the press, Mr. Sum
mcral's little 15-year-old boy, Tommie,
managed in somne way to get in the
press unuoti-ed by any one, and the lit
tle fellow was not missed until the bale
had been sewn up and thrown out on
the way for shipment.
Search was made for the missing boy,
and, as he could not be seen, the men
cut the bale of cotton open, and found
him crushed beyond recognition. His
form was pressed flat, and his head al
most split o en, being flattened. It was
a horrible bght, and two of the men
who prepar- d the body for burial fainted
at the grewsome task.
