The editor of The Duily Intelligen
cer bus received from Col. J. I'. Glb
roii of Hcnncttsville u personal letter
in which lie very bitterly assails Mr.
Pollock for mentioning the "calico
ticket," proposition. Col. Gibson
says the charge ugulnst him is In
The only charge was that he is a
member of Gov. Blouse's stuff and that
his name was on a ticket in 1KS0 along
with some negroes who were candi
dates for office. Quite a number of
Anderson people saw the ticket and
auw tho name J. P. Gibson. Mr. Pol
lock made no attack upon Mr. Gibson,
merely made a statement.
This was done, not to humiliate Col.
Gibson, as we judged the incident, but
to make sport of Gov. Please who had
been decrying tho negro and any one
tu would associate in politics direct
ly or indliectty with negroes. Mr.
Pollock In ether words, merely "re
plied in kind" and used no offensive
language uuuut Mr. Gibscn.
Mr Gibson bas sent this paper a two
column article from a paper In which
he gives the history of his political
career and declares that in 1880 ho
was a candidate on tho democratic
tocket and that his name, was put on
the republican "calico" ticket without
his knowledge or consent Mr. Gib
son Bays in part:
"Now I will explain the.existence of
the "calico checked hack ticket," which
was sent to Mr. Follbck from this
county and which 1b being exhibited
by him In the upper part of the state.
' That' cnecked hack ticket ! was not bur
! ticket. - If I had to-go ?nxo judgment
this moment I did not know anything
about the existence? of that republican
ticket with our names on * it, until I
went to Brightsvllie on the day of
"Mr. D. D. McColl who was my per
sonal friend as long as he lived, and
who. waB the father of the present
democratic chairman of this county,
told mo after the election in 1880, that
he and other white republicans In this
county had advised the republicans to
pl xce our names on their ticket. My
name was placed there without my
consent or knowledge, and any Inti
mation ar declaration, that I havo ever
catered to or affiliated with the ne
groes or republican party 1b an abso
lute falsehood as black as perdition."
We publish this much of Mr. Glb

At the age of f>F> he received his
diploma from the University of South
Carolina. This is because he left the
institution in the spring, while be was
a member of the senior cIiibs, and
commanded a company of cadets In
the first operations around Charleston.
Later he performed one of the moBt
Jf1P.rWHuJt acts of courage in the
iBory of the war, riding in an open
boat across Charleston harbor under
lire of the enemy, with dispatches for
the detached Confederate forts. For
this gallant work he was given a com
mission In the regulur army of the
Confederacy, and, If we mistake not,
he served in the regulars throughout
the war. He never returned to col

In 187G he was true to hlB- people
and in later years he was loved, hon

He lived at a typical Southern home
"Strawberry Hill," and we doubt if
the door was ever shut, except per
haps in severe weather. Hospitality
and charity radiated from its very
presence. ' Capt: Jones possessed the
social elements such as are not per
mitted to many men to enjoy, and was
by nature endowed wit h a love of
music. As a violinist he had few
