That letter of Senator Tillman's
Governor Ellerbo, which was the
auso of so much talk and nows
apor agitation, has boon repro

tublished at last. There was not
talf as much in it as was general

The main subjects troatod in
hat celebrated opistle are tho Ag

effrontery which gives out so much
smoke and so little fire. He mero
ly dips his syringe into the gutter
of filth and slimo emanating for
the lust three years from the Newvs
and Courier, thre State, the Spar
tanburg Herald and the Groen
ville Dailey News, with which the
people have been so disgusted, and
spatters me along with others with
its contents. He, however, winds
up with a reiteration of the cry:

insinuations against miy honesty.
'When these Stato slanders ab~out

were put in circulationi by the

Now tho cry is "Investigate," and
while Gantt, and no one else has,
or can, give any satisfactory rea
son why my administration of the
dispensary should bo invostigated,
I desire to ask the Governor to so

any inquiries made, and I doubt
not that overy other man connect

the contingent fund, and the mat.

think, to warrant the outlay.
