MR. MILLER'S RE
PLY TO MR. MARTIN
The following article by Editor Mar
tin appeared in the Easley Progress of
November 22 and is in reply to an ar
ticle written by Joel H. M'llor:
"We publish this week another com
inunication from Mr. Joel H. Miller,
which speaks for itself. Bro. Miller is
andeavoring to enlighten the people of
Pickens county through the columns
Af The Progress, which we believe is a
much better way than as lecturer of
'he Pickens County Farmers' Alli
ince. We trust, however, that his
,ommunications will not have as dis
ietrous effect on The Progress as his
ectures seem to have had on the'Alli
ince. Bro. Miller seems to hoot at
he idea of his having received any
'tini cups." We stand corrected. It
vas a gourd and a green one at that,
hat he and his fourteen disciples got
it the recent General Election when
hey bolted the Democratic ticket and
toted for Cole Blease in place of Gov

tastes bitter, but stick to it. Bro. Mil

hings. I will carry you back a little to

talls the writer a fish hooked out. of

Bro. Martin misrepresented the
vriter in saying that Miller after be
ng elected with a handsome vote then
vas defeated and then went over to
he Populists trying to make the im
oression that my defeat ran me to
he Populists. I have asked Bro. Mar
in, as a gentleman to correct that
vrite-up of his. I voted for the Popu
ist ticket before I ever ran for office.
Will you correct that please? or show
he record of the election. That will
'cleasee you from under this fals
1harge. Brother Martin tried to
nake the readers think I first went
