It has reached the ears of the Sena
tor of this county that there is an im
pression trying to be created by certain
of his political opponents to the effect
that in the last session of the General
Assembly he senured the passage of a
bill to place the clerk of court's office
on a salary in lieu of fees, ostensibly to
save money to the people. when in fact
he had the law so framed that it would
increase the Senator's charges for ad
vertising by giving his paper more ad
vertising to do. In order to intercep~t
such an ~ wr-ession we will state that
under tile adlvertising arrangemenrt the

Editor The Manning Times:
News, fresh, sad or gay, if it is true
I know you will appreciate as edi
tor of your valuable and interesting
paper which is circulated so far and
wide, and its readers learn from its
columns each week the doings and
sayings of both county and State.
We wish to report the news of the
military investigation held at Packs
ville on May 24th, and in doing so we
shall endeavor to render unto Ca!sar
the things that are Ciesar's. As you
have stated before in the columns of
THE TIMEs there was trouble in the
camp of the Connor Mounted Rifles
brought about by Capt. D. E. Wells'
efforts to take his men to Privateer
to man(muver and withholding the:
State's appropriation from the com
pany. This trouble seemed to rise
to a terrible pitch until the Adju
tant General directed Capt. D. E.
Wells and the command to assemble
at Packsville on May 24th, and as,
the sun rose higher in the morning
the troops began to fill the pleasant
little village of Packsville until it re
minded us of days of war; here and
there in squads of soldiers you couid
see them and hear them discussing
the coming issues with a determina
tion in the eye of every soldier. Cap
tain Wells with some if his men from
Sumter was a little apart and seemed
to be prospecting for the coming bat
tle which was delayed by the disap
pointment of the general not getting
off at the old Manchester depot as
agreed. We directed the convey-,
ance back to Packsville with notice
that he would come on the 3 o'clock
train, and as the train slowed up at:
the station there was a rush to see
the general. each vieing to greet him.
first, but the general was not able to
come and he sent Colonel Frost to
represent his office. This young of
ficer was escorted to the Packsville
Academy, where the issues were
joined by two attorneys, Capt. V.
C. Davis, representing the Connor
Rifles, and Mr. Mark Reynolds, rep
resenting Captain Wells. By this
time the academy was filled to over
Capt. W. C. Davis opened the case:
with an able and forcible address.
His military training proved a valu
able factor on this special occasion.
Coupled with his legal ability he
demonstrated that the only alterna

sign his commission and deliver un

Rifles, ase o captain could success

ould, but all to no avail.
Colonel Frost directed that every:
ember of the company who was on
he inspection roll (which he called
t the time) that was opposed to go
ng to Privateer to drill alternately
with Packsville to stand up and 29
tood up. Thme negative vote was:
ptut and 7 stood up. The remaining:
ortion of the company could not
vote as their names were not on the
inspection roll. A good number of
the members that were on the in
spection roll wvere absent, I suppose
:id not learn of the meeting in time.
It appears that forty-odd names of
the company was signed to a peti
tion to the Adjutant General asking;
for the resignation of Captain Wells:
long with other complaints this w~as
anded to Colonel Frost. Captain
Wells handed up a copy of THE MAN
NIN TIMEs to Colonel Frost, asking
iim to correct the error published in
that paper by your correspondent;
:ne week previous, when it stated
that the Adjutant General was mis
led as to the drilling at Privateer,
etc. Colonel Frost stated that the
paper lhe read from was THE TIMEs,
edited by Senator Appelt, and he
would say that the statement was
Captain WVells presented his wvrit
ten resignationi with agreement that
e was to deliver the property and;
appropriation of the cor'.inpany to the'
proper authority (except a small'
amount for gloves and band expen
ses of the committee which went to
Columbia). It appears that Captain
Wells had a barbecue at Privateer
nd an effort was made to charge thei
mount against the appropriation,
but it failed. After Captain Wells~
resigned, the petition asking for his
resignation was not read.
It is just to say that Colonel Frost
did his best to be fair in his decision
and kind and true to his fellowv sol
dier, and we extend to him our high
est app~reciation for so many kind
words for that grand and memorable
old company. the Connor Mounted
Rifles. He told them lie would soon
ship them new uniformns and Krag
rifles and equipments, and from all I
could learn newv life and fresh vigor
has set in with that grand old corn
pany and wvhen the next inspection~
comes it will, as ini the past, be see
ond to none, but always ready to
obey orders as true soldiers for their
county and State.
I notice in the Sumter Herald that
Captain Wells at the barbecue at
Privateer had raised a comn
paiiy of fifty men there. Captain
Wells said that only two lieu
tenants wvere elected there to fill thme
vacancies in the Connor Mounted
Rifles and men to swell the ranks of
the old company. Col. Frost told
theim however if they raised the coin
pany commissions wvould be issued.
He mnade an earliest apmpeal for unity
and thanked them for so many cour
tesies and bade the soldiers good-bye
and Mr. Reynolds and Colonel Frost
took the cannon ball express in the
way of a dump car to Sumter the
sanie evening and calmness soon set
tIed over the busy little village again.

ALL THAT LOUD TALK
ABOUT THE CHEAPEST STORE
Might be very confising and misleading if people did not have a good test
to apply, and that is, judge a merchant not by what he says in his advertise
ments. but by what he does in value giving. That's just the basis upon which
we ask people to judge our store.
We like to have our advertisements read. for they are our store news, but
we don't ask people to take them as proof that we give the best values. That
proof awaits our customers at our store.
