INFORMATION NOT "JAUNDICED."
We noticed the comments of the
Columbia Record of last Friday,
and for the information of the
editor of that paper we will as
sure him, all we have written
with regard to the recent prim
ry is the truth, the whole truth
and nothing but the truth, and
that it is our sincere belief
we were not defeated but de
frauded. We have made state
ments in these columns which
have not been contradicted; we
offered $100 in gold, for the pro
duction of the names of legal
white voters going to pro ce that
we have the number claimed to
have voted together with the
number of those who did not
vote,and no one has attempted to
earn this money.. We believe, in
fact we know, the vote in the
second primary showed up large
ly in excess of the white voters,
in the county. In 1892 w -
citement ran h' , and every
voter was urged out, the vote
cast was 1556, but it has never
rreached that many since, until
this year, when in the first pri
mary with a largenumber of can
didates for every office, and these
candidates making house to
house canvasses, with the ex
ception of the writer, (he did not
make a canvass nor did he at
tend all of the campaign meet
ings,) which was calculated to
bring out a full vote, the returns
showed up about 1600. In the sec
ond primary many additional
names were added to the rolls, and
with fewer candidates to vote for,
the vote went up to 1773;from eve
ry club comes the report of num
bers of men staying at home be
cause they were not interested in
the second race as their friends
were left in the first and for other
reasons. A count made, warrant
the estimate of about 250 voters
who stayed at home; we are firm
ly convinced there were not over
1450 legal white votes cast in the
second-primary, out of which we
are credited with 809, the largest
vo'te we have ever received, and
we have never been defeated be
fore. If the editor of the Re
cord will go back to the files of
his paper he will see the records
confirm our estimate of Claren
don's vote. The census will not
show over 1600 white persons in
Clarendon over the age of 21
years. We will also state for the
information of the Record. the
vote given to us was from sub
stantial citizens of the county,
the purchasable and floating ele
ment did not vote for us.
Now the Record's editor can
see whether it is through "jaun
diced glasses" we look, if he will
take the statement we make here
compare it with former votes,
and then make for his own sat
isfaction, an inquiry from disin
terested persons who are famil
iar with the county, he will not
use the words, "if true." We have
never been defeated before, re
ceived more votes this time than
ever before, had the world, the
flesh, and the Devil to contend
with, and if there had not been
the most flagrant fraud the peo
ple of Clarendon would not have
been robbed of their choice. An
other thing we can call the Re
cord editor's attention to, Clar
endon and Charleston were the
only counties that polled more
votes in the second primary than
in the first. Was there fraud in
Charleston? The only difference
is, that in Clarendon it succeed

delegation will devise a plan to

The outlook for a Democratic
victory in the Congressional
elections is bright from the Dem
ocratic press standpoint, but
aside from this the concensus of
opinion is the reverse. Senator
Morgan of Alabama in an inter
view recently expressed views
similar to our editorial expres
sions sometime ago. We do not
see anything to be gained with a
Democratic majority in the lower
House, with the Senate Repub
lican. In fact, we believe it
would be to our party's disad
vantage, we would become the
party of obstruction instead of
construction. In our opinion, it1
'wi show more wisdom to let the
Republicans have the House, and
keep our ammunition dry for the
presidential election. With a
Republican president and a Re
publican Senate what in the
world can a Democratic House
do but obstruct.

The New York Gubernatorial
contest is becoming interesting,
and it smacks somewhat of a
South Carolina primary cam- 1
paign. The Democrats are put
ting Governor ODell on the de
fensive by charging him with
being a stock holder in a grocery
concern which during his regime
is the beneficiary of the contracts
to furnish the penal and chari
table institutions with supplies.
It reminds us of the time when
Governor Tillman sold cows
from his plantation to the State
asylum at $40. per head and the
tax books showed they were r - -
turned at less than $10. The
charge against the New York
governor has not reached the
stage of taking advantage of his
position to charge greater prices
for these supplies than they are
worth, but the purpose is to
create such a suspicion in the
minds of the voters. In South
Carolina charges such as these
have been made but with little
effect, because the candidate
against whom they were made
was riding on the top of a revo
lutionary wave, and the people
paid little attention to it: we
guess it will be the same in New
York. Odell has made his ad
ministration popular, and the
Republicans have got the Em
pire State firmly grasped, to
such an extent that in the lan
guage of Senator Platt "the
nominee of the party, if he was a
yellow dog" can be elected this
The Democrats of New York
may rant and snort about Odell's
groceries, it will only intensify
the Republican support to him,
just as the South Carolina scan- 1
dals exposed by the "Anties,"
intensified the Reform support
to Governor Tillman. If Odell
is selling groceries to the penal
and charitable institutions of
New York it is his right, unless
it can be proven that he is get
ting more for his goods than
dthers will furnish for, just as it
was Governor Tillman's right to
furnish our asylum with cows at
840. per head if they were worth
The Worst Form.
Multitudes are singing the praises
of Kodol, the new discovery which is
making so many sick people well and
weak people strong by digesting
what they eat, by cleansing and
sweetening the stomach and by
transforming their food into the kind
of pure, rich, red blood that makes
you feel good all over. Mrs. Cranfill
of Troy, I. T., writes: For a number
of years I was troubled with indiges
tion and dyspepsia which grew into
the worst form. Finally I was in
duced to use Kodol and after using
four bottles I am entirely cured. I
heartily recommend Kodol to all suf
ferers from indigestion and dyspep
sia. Take a dose after meals. It di

The annual convention of the South
Carolina Woman's Christian Temper
ance Union met at Leesville October
-12, 1902. in College Chapel.
Each place has its own individuality,
clored by its natural peculiarities.
Leesville certainly cannot be surpassed
in the charm of her surroundings or in1
the graciousness of her hospitality: this
was equaled by the sympathetic co
operation of all the churches in pro
viding for the comfort of the body.
One has said, truly as well as beauti
fully, -that " The temperance cause is
the noblest expression of the highest
life of the modern wvorld, and sounds the
keynote of a symphony yet to be. which I
is to awake and sweep into majestic
harmonies all the chords of purified hu- I
man thought and feeling around the<
globe-love, trust, joy, service, adora
tion, blending and rising toward the
throne of God."
Coming to meet with our beloved
president, Mrs. L. B. Haynes, all were
made to feel that this session was to be
truly a home-coming. On leaving the
cars one could surely breathe the at- I
mosphere of purity throughout the con
vention, and were forcibly impressed
with the earnest and patient teachings
of temperance in their town. Espe
ciallv was it noted among the young
menand everywhere thc little knot of
white ribbon was in evidence. No
doubt every delegate and visitor wvill
return to their homes filled with fresh
inspiration and a determination to go
forward and try to make their respec
tive towns like dear old Leesville.
The business sessions were held in
the chapel, and the decorations were
very pleasing-festoons of' white rib-1
bon~ and appropriate mottoes adorned
the walls. Our president delivered, in
a gracious manner, an excellent ad
dress, and it contained a special mes
sage for busy mothers.*
The convention was honored by the
presence of Mrs. M. E. Cartwright,
State president of North Carolina and
she proved of valuable service: also
preached on Sunday morning in the

present, and very encouraging reports

nother year, and Anderson was the
