En reve t Pieens FstoMce as Second CUa
Kill Matter
Really the fight between
Jones and Blease is between
reformers. They were both
Tillmanites in the 90's The
conservatives of that period
have no special claims upon
either of them, neither have
they upon the conservatives.
He stands by the grafters.
Although it has been proven by
*_the testimony of several that B.
-Atothart, chief dispensary
consible in Charleston, has
rt.ceived money from the blind
tigers of that city to keep the
constables from raiding them,
the governor keeps him in of
fice and, we suppose, the graft
ing goes merily on.
We have faith enough in the
people to believe that they will
stand for the right. That they
will *ote for clean men for
office. That they will votejpA
honest men for office. ey
will repudiate t after and
those who staif by the grafter.
,4-t awbreaker, and the
murderer. Surely South Caro
linians will stand for the right.
It is hoped that the County
candidates will not be required
in the campaign to publicly de
Clare their preference for any
other candidate, and if the
.matter is pressed upon them or
any of them we hope they will
have manhood enough to de
cline so to express ~themselves.
- ' business as 'to
who any man votes for or is in
favor of. The only, or at least
the proper and most important
consideration is the man's fit
-ness for the position he seeks.
In hisbeech at Winnsboro
Juy22nd., Gov. Blease corn
pared .tiielf to a fox.
SIn a spat~ between he and
SJudge J3nes he said:
"I wouldn't hit you for any
Fthing. If I were to jump across
Sthei-e :and~ hit you, they would
say that I struck a poor old de
crepit man and that would elect
you. That's what you want
me to do, to hit you, but I'm too
smart an old fox to be caught
in your trap."
And a fox is mighty sly and
cnnning and hard to trap.
May be thats the reason the
dictaeraph lost thi trail.
.Lawlessness Encouraged.
One of the strongest reasons
why Gov. Blease should not be
xe-ie~d s. that he encourages
lawlessness. He has proved
this in several ways but not
more strongly than in his speech
on the State House steps on
the night of the 19th of July.
In that speech he is reported as
In speaking of 0. M. Watson
and 3. N. King of Greenville,
S. C., who recently issued a
signed statement saying that
they had been insulted at the
governor's mansion when they
attempted to secure a reprieve
for a condemned negro, he is
quoted as saying: "I would
gladly pardon any man who
would kill King and Watson if
they should come to his house
in the same condition and use
same language which they did
at the mansion."
If such a thing as this should
occur it would be murder. Is
Gov. Blease in favor of people
murdering each other? It seems
so, and if he has been correctly
quoted in the above he is. The
law, which he as chief Magis*
trate is sworn to uphold, obey
and enforce. plainly declares an
act of this kind to be murder.
Under the law no one is excus
able for committing murder ex
cept whee - t is necessary to
save life or body from serious
harm in self defence.
A Prophecy.
The old sayings that "still
water runs deep," and "the
brighest hour is just before day"
and "the darkest cloud has a
silver lining," and "there is a
calm before a storm." is about
to come to pass in Pickens.
For some time the town has
been rather, on the stand-still
order like many of the other
owns and cities. Few enter
)rises have been undertaken,
-ery little material progress has
>een made; we have been on the
lark side of the cloud, but the
ilver lining ii coming into view,
the rumbling noise of approach
ng progress and material ad
vancement is heard and ere
long the wheels of industry
will be heard singing the sonu
of prosperity. Very little is be
ing said about these things but
we venture the prophecy that
before another twelve month
rolls around dirt will be broker
and the erection of another cot
ton mill will be well under way
We predict that within tha
period the. Pickens mill will
double its building and capacity.
and that the few empty houses
now in town will be occupiec
and a demand for more that
can be furnished. WATCH.
The Senatorial Candidates.
The candidates for the Unite<
States Senate will address th<
voters of this county at Picken
next Monday, August, 5th
There are only three in thi
race. Hon. B. R. Tillman
Hon. W. Jasper Talbert an<
Hon. N. B. Dial. Senator Till
man has not been with th
campaign party at any of th
meetings 'on account of il
health and will not, it is though
be here. It is presumed th
candidates for congress wil
present unless it is Hon
Wyatt Aiken whose duties wil
probably require his presence 11
It is very, very noticeable a
to the manner of these gentlE
men, in their campaign ds cow
pared to that of the candidate
for State officers. These mei
have pitched their campaign o:
a high plane and are cOnductin
themselves as high-toned gentlh
men. They indulge in no pei
sonalities, mud slinging c
abuse of e tch other. They o<
casonally amuse the crowd
with an innocent joke and caus
a laugh, but not yet has onec
them passed the lie, said har
things or reflected upon tb
character, either public or pri'
ate, of any man. They discus
the issues in a calm. busines
like way and each receive
respectful hearing by the pe<
pe. There is no hurrahing
jeering or howling down (
whooping up. This is the wa
to conduct a campaign. It
very commendable in thes
men to set such a high standar
in politics. The candid ates f(
State office have a 1: orthy e>
ample before them. We nee
to get back to the days c
statesmenship: the days whe
men ran on their merits an
not the demerits of another: I
the days when brains and n<
demagoguery was the chib
consideration. Let us get bac
to the days when men will n<
be ruled by passion and spli
and a spirit of revenge. Ever
good citizen should spurn th
demagogue and penny polit
cian.~ The man who loves h
country and wants it to prosp(
and rank high in the eyes of th
world should turn his back upo

The fellow who is always jurn]

"Clean Up the Bowels and
Keep Them Clean"
There are many remedies to be
had for constipation, but the diffi
culty is to procure one that acts
without violence. A remedy that
docs not perform
by force what
- should be accom
plished by persua
sion is Dr. Miles'
S Laxative Tablets.
~- j~/ After using them,
fi Mr. N. A. Waddell,
3 I5 Washington
St., WVaco, Tex.,
"Amosa t all my
(''life I have been
troubled with constipa:tion, and have
tried many remedies, all of which
seemed to cause pain! without giving
much relief. I finally tried Dr. Miles'
Laxative Tablets and foun~d them ex
cellent. Their action is pleasant and
mild, and their chocolate taste makes
them easy to take. I am more than
glad to recommend them."
"Clean up the bowels and keep
them clean," is the advice of all
physicians, because they realize the
danger resulting from habitual con
stipati'on. Do not delay too long,
but begin proper curative measures.
IDr. Miles' Laxative Tablets are a
new remedy for this old complaint,
and a great improvement over the
cathartics you have been using in
the past. They taste like candy
and work like a charm. A trial
will convince you.
Dr. Miles' Laxative Tablets are
Isold by all druggists, at 25 cents
a box containing 25 doses. If not
found satisfactory after trial, re
turn the box to your druggist and
he will return your money.
