way, declined. There was a number of
applications from srlendid men for the
delegation to consider, and it is a pleas
ure to know that any one of the appli
cants could with sincerity be reco
mmended. but as only one could be
chosen, the delegation reached the con
clusion that inasmuch as the Supervisor
comes from the Salem section, the va
ancy should be filled from the section
from where the vacancy occured. and
therefore it was decided to recomniend
Capt. J. A. James of Summerton, a man
who has had experience with railroad
building, and who it is believed will
take an active interest in certain work
in the western partof the county where
it is sorely needed.

this week, and from what we can gh

of dismembering Clarendon to gratify
the speelators interested in Olanta.
One prominent citizen told us that it is
practically impossible for the Olanta
project to succeed, even if every vote in
Salem should be cast for it, because the
new county cannot get the necessary
wo-thirds vote in the other counties,
as those people are as much opposed to
he Olanta scheme as is THE TDDLS
editor. Then why should our people
sign the pesitions and bring about the
expense of a survey and an election to
be paid for, not by the promoters of the
new county, but by the taxpayers. who
are not to reap any benefit even if they
sneed. Let the petitions alone is our
The patrons of Rehobeth school on
Santee are considerably agitated over
te conduct of Miss Rebecca Bagnal, a
ughter of Mr. James Bagnal. It ap
pears that Miss Mabell Flagg, the teach
er of the school, had occasion to punish
Mr. Bagnal's little boy for some infrac
tion of the rules, and on the next day
his sister Rebecers committed an assault
upon Miss Flagg with a stick. The com
munity is incensed at the conduct of
the BagnA's, and the trustees have or
dered the I discontinuance at the school,
hey have also proscuted the girl who
ommitted the assault upon Miss Flagrg.
We are told that the teacher is awfully
humiliated at the treatment she receiv
ed and while the stick was being applied
to her she was shocked so that she of
fered no resistence. Miss Flagg is an
excellent young lady, not very robust
and strong: that the people of that sece
,ion are indignant is notsurprising. This
it is said, is not the first trouble this
family of children have had at school,
they gave trouble at Trinity and at
Jordan, and now again a:, Rehobeth.
Jst what will be the outcome remains
o he seen, but it should be made clear
that school teachers are ent'led to pro
tection from the law.

Was It Set?
Sunday night about 10:30 fire broke
out in the prize house of the Pepe
Tobacco Warehouse, and before the fire
engine could get a stream of water the
flames had gotten such headway that it!
was impossible to do more than save the
fire from spreading and destroying the
thickly nestled houses in the vicinity,
s it was, a tenant house belonging to
Mrs. F. E. Brocginton and occupied by
a Mrs. Nichols was carried away by the
The prize house was filled with hay1
belonging to Mr. W. P. Legg, about
forty tons, and this was entirely destroy
ed. Mr. Legg has $500 insurance which
of course will not compensate for the
loss. The building was insured for $600,
it was a three story wooden structure,I
and would cost several times the amount
of insurance to rebuild it. considerable
damage was done to the fencing belong
ing to Mrs. Brockinton, and also to the
lurniture of the people living in the
nearby houses who were forced to move.
Had the wind been blowing the other
way the loss would have been much
greater. Sparks and pieces of burning
wood was carried fully one-fourth of a
mile, catching the barn of Dr. Geo. L.
Dickson, and an outhouse belonging to
Mr. F. W. Dickson. There was a veri
tble rain of sparks in the cemetery.
There is grave suspicion that this fire
which came near being very disastr'ous,
is the work of some devilish flecd. Some
months ago a fire occured in a tenant
b ise close to this prize house within
a short time after the Clark wareh,,use
was destroyed, and it was only because
of a favorable wind, and the hardest
work that the prize house which was
burned Sunday night, was saved then:
it was the opinion of some at that time
that the fire was start~ed in the tenant
house to get the prize and warehouse,
now again the same place is visited by
the tire fiend, this time the suspicion is
een stronger, because there was no way
o fire getting into the building without
being caried or originatin~g there, the
windows were all nailed up, and the
dissecurely fastened, therefore it was
work of an incendiary or spontane
Ou combustion, the former theory is
the general sentiment.

A Former Citizen of Clarendon Snicides.
The Sunday New, of the 4wh ist..
contains zn account of the sef-dtu
tion of a man who was at one time a
citizen of Clarendon, and who afterwards
moved to Sumter. "*Bill Sparks" for a
number of vears lived at Foreston and
frequently came to Manning. lie was
of a rovingr disposition and had traveled
all over the L'nion working at his trade.
The last time we saw Sparks he was do

Thursday evening. W. A. Sparks. of No.
15 John street, a foreman carpenter.
died at his home Saturday morning. The
coroner's jury. which held an inquest
over the body Saturday afternoon at 5
o'clock. at the McAlister undertaking
establishment, on Meeting street. bring
ing in a verdict to the effect that the
carpenter had died of laudanum poison
ing, the fluid having been imbibed with
suicidal intent during a fit of temporary
aberration of the mind.
Sparks had been living at No. 15 John
street for several months and was well
known in contracting and carpenter cir
cles in the city. The news of his death
was received with surprise Saturday
mornin. He is said to have filled ser
eral contracts since first coming to Char
leston. and was considered a model car
penter. Friends of the dead man, how
ever, claim that he very freouently dur
ing the last few weeks complained bit
terly of the fact that he was unable to
procure enough work. and they believe
that the cause of his self-destruction can
he traced to this. Th L. the contractor
had made up his mind o die by h-s own
hand was evidenced by a note, which r.e
left to the coroner. and which he evi
dently wrote before taking the dose of
poison, which resulted in his death Sat

A Platform and Statement.
To the Voters of the Town:
I stated in the announcement of
myself as a candidate for Mayor that
I would briefly state my views to the
voters of the town for their consider
I ne word first as to how I was got
ten into the race. For the last three
terms I have been approached by the
father of the leader of the present op
position and urgzed to allow :ay name
to be used for Mayor, assuring~ melI
would have no opposition. I p1--ad
pressure of my own affairs as an ex
cuse for declining. Again, several
weeks ago I was urged by the spokes
men of the present opposition to r-un,
and consenied, so I take it those who
will vote against me will do so. not
because of a want of fitness, but for
other reasons, among them being the
popularity of my opponent, he being
a most excellent gentleman.
As I understand the real ground
and reason for any opposition, how
ever, is because I was opposed to the
'block ticket' system. Not opposed
to the men on the proposed ticket,
they being doubtless my personal
friends, but to the principle of selec
ting the ticket for the citizens to voto-.
they being in my judgment. compe
tent to select their officers themsel ves,
and certainly they ought to be inter
ested enough to get men into the race
from whom a selection might be
made. In short I contend our primary
system is good enough for town elec
tions, and that there should be only
one ticket upon which the names of
all candidates for Mayor and Alder
men should be printed, and that the
voter should scratch those he does
not wish to vote for. It was argued
this 1:as not good politics-maybe
not- but it is the wa.-y to select the
best council. for by it every man
stands upon his merit.
Notwithstanding the fact that I
was good enough for their ticket un
ti1 the above di fference developed, no
sooner had I announced myself than
it was stated upon the street that I
had said, "if elected, I would saddle
the sewer system. of which Comnpany
I am President, upon the town.'' To
the thoughtful I need not state. that
entering upon a race, with any hope
of election. I would not be such a
simpleton as to make such a fo':' .h
statement. The statement, however,
is not only utterly false in every par
ticular. but I have never even dream
ed of such a thing. This may be bet
ter politics than my idea about the
selection of a council, but it was
sprung too far ahead of the election,
As I have stated to some, I now rett
erate as a pledge, that if elected May
or this shall never be done while I am
in office, except over my solemn p~ro
test, and I hope all candidates for Al
(erman will be similarly pledged.
One more word as to my platform:
I shall give the same careful study to
to the town's needs and business ams I
try to give to my private business.
and expect to spend a portion of each
day that 1 atm in town in the town

Every ordinance up-:n the statute

jstice meted o'2t to everyone coming
before mec judicially. Only the law
breaker need be afraid.
I shall stand for a clean and hmeat
thy town-not only for clean streets,
but for clean back lots and premnises.
From what I understand is the con.
dition of the town finances, v'ery lit
te can be done for several years in
the way of a forward movement, or
in permanent public improvements,
but by careful economy I should hope
to make possiblt .1 a few years some
If the finances should not warrant
the publication in a newspaper of
every item of town receipts and ex
penditures, I should advocate the
pa:.,-ge of an ordinance requiring the
town clerk to tile on the last day of
each month an itemized 'tatement of
such receipts and disbursements for
the month with the Clerk of Court,
or some other public official, where
any citizen could examine the same
at any time.
I would much prefer discussing
these and other matters in person be
fore the voters, but such in brief is
my position. Respectfully.

We nave rec--i'ed from our old boy
hood friend a letter which will he of in
terest t.> many in this county. and for
that, reason it is reproduced in these
columnsi. Mr. Hugiins and the writer
,pent many happy ..ays together in the
-;ection he refers to. his recalling it to
us forces our mind back to days where
we can truthfully wish that "time would
turn backwards," and bring back the
happy hours of youth with such souls as
our correspondent. then a happy go
lcky medical student, now a devout
"Sky P:lot." It will be gratifying to
many to know that Mr. Huggins will he
'i-ar. and that we can occasionally hear
h m admonish us when we st ray from the
soaight and narrow path, it would he
still more gratifying if he would be call
ed back to Uarendon to remain. The
writer may be regarded by some as ca!!
ous to'.he things spiritual. but if he was
known to them and understood by them
as well as he is known and understuM-d
ov ''Bzie" Huggins. we believe the.%
would at 'east give him credit f.r some
virtue But we Qtarted out to publisi
