Ladies Left
The following is a description of
which the candidates for Governor fron
part :
The campaigners have left the State
of Suth Carolina as it were, and are
now in "the State of Edgetield." They
are likewise no longer " on the fence "
- if sensitive ones will pardon this ex
pression, which only means that they
are now on '' The ltidge.'' This is a
famous fruit and peach ridge, the fame
of which has spread far beyond the
borders of the State, as has the patri
otic and sometimes startling record
contributed to the universe in general
by historic old Edgefleld. The candi
dates are not seeking peaches on this
peach ridge-they are earnestly seek
ing that other juicy and delicious fruit
for which this centre-this vineyard
this orchard---is equally famous-" po
litical plums." The tree this season
has only about ten plums-even the
fertile soil of old Edgelield can do no
more.
Plum seekers and plum dispensers
gathered in the old court house here
the scene of much 1Edgefleld history
at 11 o'clock to hear discussions on
fruit harvesting, with especial refer
ence to securing plums. Promptly at
11 o'clock County Chairuian ainsfoi d
cal!ed the meeting to ord.er, appropri
ate prayer being made by the Rev. G.
W. Davis. Ice wat,er and fans weic
among numerons evidences of the
thoughtful reception extended here.
Some of Col. Talbert's friends met
him at the station and made pleasant
cries for their particular favorite. Lib
eral cheers in the audience at the men
tion of ,John C. Sheppard's name.
Mention of old soldiers was always a
signal for cheers. Plums were eagerly
sought--some of the brethren " shin
nying around" at a l.vely rate; others
placing ia -patent-extension step lad
der at the foot of the tree--a tree
which stretched in the wrong direction
-even as fast as grew the tree of
Jack the Giant Killer.
The court house was full when the
meeting began, many of Edgetield's fa
mous beauties being present. The
listeners he'ad with that interest al
ways shown on this subject by an
Edgetield audience.
It was expected by knowing ones
that this Edgeflld meeting would not,
except in its reflex action, be a sol
emn occasion. In genuine Edgetleld
spirit, long conlined and non-riven
asunder, it surpassed, so the old cam
paigners affirm, anything ever seen in
South Carolina. 1'his was occasioned i
by the mouthy and most vociferous 1
tempest war of mouths and of noise I
between the rival factions of Tabert t
and Tillan. For exactly 43 min
utes after Col. Tiliman was introduced, t
this howling and yelling was so per
sistently maintained as to effectually
stop even attempts at speaking. Many
times when the roar of howling voices
wore at the utmost extreme of frenzied
shrieking it was perfectly patent that1
what was once popularly supposed to
have "broke loose in Georgia'" had
permanently established headquarters
in Edgefield court, house, South Caro
lina. The yelling began immediately
at the close of Ansel's speech and for
some time cheers and counter cheers
for Talbert anud TLiliman prevented 1
Hleyward, who was to follow, from
speaking. He did speak and when he
stopped and said, "My honored friend
Talbert cane to my town and spoke,
so did my distinguished friend Till
man, and no one yelled for Hecyward "
-the cheers of the house greeted
him. Col. Talbort was received with
most cordial enthusiasm but the coun
ter cheering for Taibert andi Tillman
grew 59 turbulent and confusing that
not one word could be heard before he
stopped speaking.
Lieut. Gov. Tillman was received
with long continued cheering and ap
plause. By this time, however, the
rival factions were wrought to such
frenzy that Chairman Rainsford, Tal..
bert andl Tillman could do absolutely
nothing. No appeal had any effect.
The noise grew louder at frenzied in
tervals and then decreasedl when
throats could no longer bear the strain;
to yell again when renewed strengt,h
came. For exactly 43 mInut,es Col.
Tillman faced the crowd and only
stopped when it became easily appar
ent that the rival factions had no idea
of stopping their hooting and yelling.
There were a few drunken men In the
crowd but not much anger was visible,

great that in a few minutes Talbert's
friends came up and bore him out in
similar manner. Your correspondent

the campaign meeting at Edgolleld, ii
that county bore a most conspicuout
of dynamita and giant powder washed
down with a tabasco cocktail, to dc
justice to what transpired, but some
details will be seen below. A cyclone
shook the plun tree which, however,
is still standing.
At the very tip top of this plum tree
there is a plum of dignity and honor, a
revolving light house variety, being
dazzling at times and totally invisible
at others. This gubernatorial plt'm

today. Candidate Ansel first gave a
lesson on fruit harvesting and presor.

the pupils and voters but these had

first speaker. After a look at the plum

livered his mesRage; told his record;
stated his platform and was closely
heard. He looked at the tree again,
told of Brother Jrawford again, was
well cheered and closed.
Cheers and counter cheers for Talbert
Imd Tillman now reigned, cheers for
ralbort predominating, in spite of
chairman Itainsford's efforts to pro
:luce order. Some semblance of order
was finally securet aftor continuous
)ounding of the chairman's gavel. The
hival factions were very noisy. Col.
r'albert then got the floor and asked
,or quiet, and the continuance of the
)rogramme.
Capt. 11 eyward was greeted with
*heers and enthusiasm; then again
heers and counter cheers for Talbert
tnd Tiliman with some few for Hey

Col. Talbert and the chairman again
isked for order. Col. Talbert asking

Japt. Heyward spoke to a talkative

ffhenever the speaker was applanded,
here were cries for Talbert and Till.
nan. Heyward's allusion to the con
rast between this and former meet
ngs was greeted with genuine Edge
ield cheers. Capt. IIeyward, contin
iing, held the attention of his. hearers,
vinning applause, which was always
net by counter cheers for Tillman and
['albert.
Capt. Heyward made his speech,
was heard better and better by an
udience that was noisy in persistent
uterruption during the greater part of
lib'delivery. He defined his position
inaf,y, amid close attention from much
he larger portion of the audience.
lome one in the audience about this
iine said, " Talk forever."
Capt. Heyward closing held the un

speaker.
Col. Talbert made his usual speeTh
Lip to this ploint with more than usual
vigor and was enthusiastically cheered
mt various int.ervals, these ringing out
loud and always mingled with some
arles for Tillman. The air rang with
sheers when Col. Talbert announced
hits unalterable opposition to taxing
white men to educate negroes. Hats
were waved and cheers were redoubled.
Pandemonium reignedl again, Telbert,
could not be heard amid counter cheers
for Talbert and Tiiman. This was
the most persistently noisy dlemon
stration of the meeting up to this
time. Col. Talbert stopp)ed his speech
amid this absolute Babel of mixed
noises, lie was presentedl wit,h flow
ers and retired.
Air splitting E~dgeflold yells, loud
andl continued, greetedl the appearanre
of Col. Tillman. Again counter cheers
for Tillman and Tlalbert greeted the
ears with vehement r'ar. The chair
man's gavel was of no avail and for a
long time Col. Tillman faced the
cheering, noisy crowd. The continu..
ous beAting of the chairman's gavel
added to this with no qjmieting effect.
At last silence reigned momentarily
and Col. Tillman thanked the friends

The town of Saluda, in the prosperous
new county of that name, gave a joyful
welcome to the State camlpaigners on
the Vourth of .1uly, and the crowd in
attendance was Imuclh the largest
which has yet greeted the candidates
On their rounds.
All of the candidates were well re
ceived and many new friends were
made. The crowd might properly be
termed nobody's crowd ; they were cer

Was a plenty of close listening, but no
enthusiastic cheering, Col. 'T'albert
having most of the applause given any
of the candidates.
'1'le same old glorious Fourth rose
here clear and cali, but soon the sun
retired behind clouds, at performiance
never voluntarily undertaken by the
average candidate. Only live years ago
the site of the present county seat was
the forest primeval ; today its former
woodland quiet reechoed the eloquence
of the South Carolina campaigners.
The place is a quiet little hamlet which
seemed nearly deserted until all caudi.
dates were stirring.
Soon the voters were stirring and it
was evideat that the woods were full
of themt. 'T'hey came from every di.
rection, but with unanimous consent
moved towards one objactive point.
This was the pine grove just on the
outskirts of the town, where the meet
ing was to be held. The acting county
chairman, Mr. Carroll J. Rtamage, was
busy all the morning arranging for the
comfort, and convenience of the candi
dates in which he was assisted by all
the citizens of the town. The party
was entertained most hospitably again,
all receiving such welcome as was most
pleasant. This was the birth place and
home of William Barrett Travis and
Bill Bowie of Alamo fame, and also of
Bloody Bill Cunningham. The county
is thickly populated judging from the
number of substantial homes being on
the road side.
The people are hospitable South (.ar
olnians and gave such cordiul greeting
to the campaign party as made themi
feel qiuite at home. Polities naturally
bubbles over in this scetion. Many
visitors were here from neighboring
counties and towns. An old-fashioned
gathering awaited the speakers. Men,
women and children, and babies way
up in the hundteds were under the
spreading green wood tree, the ladies
being almost as numerous as voters.
A barbecue or so was in constant
progress of preparation and (lisappear
ance, tables and ice cream churns were
in every direction, and the scene had
the appearance (if a large picnic. The
audience numbered between 1,500 and
2,000 persons and the interest was
great. The;ciowd was never quiet ex
;ept just at speakera' staud, ne parti
cular speaker claiming the attention of
all. At half past 10 o'clock the acting
chairman, Mr. C. J. lamage, in appro
priate remarks, called the ueeting to
order.
The crowd was always moving on
t,he far outer edges, but voters were
banked thickly around the stand when
gubernat,orial candidates were ian
nouned(. Capt,. IIeywvard was [lie first
speaker and1( camei forwatrd amnid ap
plause and hurrabs for Hleyward. le
paid lune tributes to t,his worthy child
of Edgehleld and of South CarolIna and
to [lie large number of ladies present.
Issues were clearly (discussedl in detail
as previouisly reported. Capt. Hey
ward was heard with und(ividled atten
tion andl at, various times " llurrah for
Ileyward '" wore heard from [lie audi
ence.
Congressman Tal bert, came for ward
amid applause and 'cheers for " Tal
bert." Was glad to meet citizens of
t,he count,y lie had worked for, eveni
when lie was a cit,izen of [lie other
side of ICdgetlld. .No controversy
about [lie issues of our latformi, but
you have a right to know how we
st,and. So, reahzin g resp)onsibiti es
involved, lie discussed issues as before
recorded. Col. Talbert received [lie
closest attention, was cheered and1( ap-.
plaudedl, especially when lie again ex
p)ressed himself as being absolutely
opposed to taxing [lie white men to
educat,e [lie negro. Col. T1albert
closed with cheers and applause, some
cheers for Tillman.
The chairman next introduced
" Lieutenant Governor Tillman,a mani
whose name is a household word in
t,his section." (Col. Tillman received
sonmc cheers and ap)plauise, with hur
rahis for T1albert. An interchange of
more or less goodt naturedl chafling
marked this speech. Col. Tillman too
made his usual' speech with variations
caused by interiuptions. Referring
once to D)r. Timmerman, a voice cried:
" Let old Doe, alone, g~ive it to Tal
bert." Col. Tlillman -Is no advice
on this subject as is i.eli known, lie
charged T1albert, with dlrawmig $16 a
(liy working for hinself instead of his
constituents. lHe is only in Washing
ton on "p)ay (lay." " Yes, lie will be
in Columbia pay day," said a voice
from [lie crowd. " My friend," sol
emnly re plied Col. Tiillmman, " If you
are dlepeniding on Col. Tialbert for paiy
day, look for the poor house." Hie
asked Col. Tralbert after '24 years of

Dr. Timmerman came next, and was
received with most pleasant familiar
ity and evidences of good feeling. lie
emplhasized his greater interest in this
county and his greater claims for their
ounsideratiou. Dr. 'T'imimerman an

"no new fangled notions to present." t
Spoke of taxes remaining as they I
were, needed no s,eech here, it was
about dinner time, people were tired I
and would close. Never a politician
never a wire-puller, never a diima
gogue. Dr. Timmerman had a grati
fying reception, had many encourag
iug remarks from the audience, and
concluded by saying "he did not go
around to get up a drunken crowd io
yell and whoop for me and as long is
I am a man with any manhood, I sha.l
not do this."
The audience had thinned out con
siderably when Mr. Ansel was intro

for his competitors. in answer to my
distinguished friend (Tillman) I want
to say if I had been at home I would

GAunter declared Mr. St.evenson was
not only unworthy of the office lhe

GAunter renewed former assertion
that Mr. Stevenson sold out, office of
