The Fa~rmer's TI r ii b u n e (Des

on the situation: "The greed and

starvation can the millions be
taught any new ideas of govern

reason with him, brit a hungry

ease, and bring him to time, so let
him alone. When they see things
in their true light they will recog
nline the fact that they must vote
together or perish, and in order to
do this they must investigate, and
choose the right. C.

GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATRs ARE
COLUMBIA, July 8.--Special: The
Reformers are watching .with a
great deal of interest the special
meeting of the executive commit
tee, which has been called to moot
here on Tuesday. One can hear all
kinds of suggestions about what
will be done, and wagers that the
committee will abandon the pri
mary plan which was ordered.
There seems to be possible danger
ahead in the event of the declina
tion to abandon the strictly par
tisan primary as well as in stand
ing by it.
The situation, to a non-partisan,
looks something like this: The
contest for the Gubernatorial con
test has every appearance of being
between John Gary Evans on the
one side and the other three candi
dates on the other. John Gary
Evans is considered to have the
support of the orthodox and ultra
Reformers, while Ellerbo is genor
ally credited with being the Alli
anco champion. Secretary of
State Tindal is just now the candi
date of no particular faction, but
has the support of the more liberal
minded Roformers, and Dr. Samp
son Pope, who is running as the
"Orphan boy candidate," has no
special class of allies.
Now the campaign has boon jog
;ing along for over two wooks and 0
,he candidatos, or rather their
7riends, are beginning to count
:hances, as indicated by the met
ngs. The friends of Mr. Tindal
.ocognize that if the Conservativos ty
tro going to voto at all that he dr
vould got more of their votes than or
nost of the other candidates, and ca
vithough Mr. Tindal is not asking
or those votes, that is the general of
tupression as a result of the style ha
f the man and his campaign. f
Now as betwoon Evans and El.
irbo the friends of Eilerbe recog
izo that ho will get more of the
onsorvative or liberal vote than c
vans if the general primary is ct
sortod to, and the selection or
iggesting is not made by a close d
>mbination. Ellerbe's friends
-e as a result not set againat the

Masons and effect come out and P
avocate the plank There does ts
ot soomi to be ally questioni about aI
hd fact that the Evans crowd on t
ho executive committee will do t

urpose to change the existing I
ule with reference to the "suggest- E
It looks very much as if the de
~ision of this question will be one
>f vital importance to the Reform
irs, and there can be no question
a.bout the fact that which over -way
the matter is deoided it will be a
bitter pill for the opposmng faction.
Whether this smart under defeat
will have any permanlent effect
would be entirely problematic. It
may. Then the fight will very
probably be much more interest
ing than it is at p~resenlte.
There is conlsidorable surprise
hereabouts at the dlevelojpmnlt of
Mr. Ellerbe as a stump speaker.
It was not expected that he would
undertake such an aggressive cam
paign, and f.rom indications there
is every probability of' its getting
moreoso.--Nows & Courier.

ANDERoN, July 7.--Major E. B.
Murray was drowned this after
.noon. in a. small pond in front of
his house. He aad . Miss Felicia,
his daughter, Miss Mary Preer and
Miss Helen Sloan were in bathing.
After being in about an hour Maj.
Muriay carried a boat out near the
middle of the pond for one of the
young ladies to dive from. She
dived and swam ashore and while
standing on shore they noticed Mr.
Murray strugling in the water at
some distance from the boat. His
daughter asked if she must come
to him. He shook his head. She
then went out to him with Miss
Preer. Major Murray caught hold
of each of the young ladies and
would have pulled them under but
that they caught hold of the boat.
They called for help but before any
assistance arrived he sank in wa
ter about ton foot doop. The
2ews sproad very rapidly and a
argo crowd soon gathered. Wil- t
ianm Gilos, after sovoral searches, a
ound the body and after several
fforts brought it up and carried it
) shore. Doctors Harris, Wilhite
nd Frierson wore at work exerting
rory offort to resusciato him, but t,
tr working more than an hour
toy found no signs of life. The
)dy was in the water about twen- T
minutes, It is thought by the yi
ictors that ho was attacked by wt
amp or vertigo. His death ti,
used the depost sorrow and uni- jin
real gloom here. si
Hle was one of the loading mon

rd work for the State. He was to

for the candidates bothering us so
much. They are so many in num
ber that just as soon as one leaves
we see another coming, they are
powerful good and kind to us boys,
and if wo haven't a. pass they will 6
go all the way to town and get it
for us. Now that you have a pass,
will you kindly think of us when
the election comes on?
Well as for us boys, we hardly
know, We would love to stop and I
study a while or count them to see
how many there wore. Will you
pleaso tell them to just be quiet,
we will do the bast we can for them
under the circumstances.
Wo had quite a pleasant time
on tho 4th, Uncle Willis Garrett

illowod us to carry our "best girl,"

ery pleasant for awhile, but our
Dolings began to chainge, and we
alt like going to the parlor for a 0

oung people gathered around the R
rgan for a singing. We spent
ome time in singing, which the g
Id people seemed to enjoy very 01
aiuch. About 5 o'clock in the
