come to charleston.
First of all, (for that i* uppormost in
my mind), it should be known in Lau
ron? that all Laurene is expected to
come to Charleston on tho twenty-sec
ond of April, when tho re-union of Con
federate survivors Is held. Thousands
of old "Confeds" from every county and
8tato will be horc and tho occasion
will bo ono of tho greatest events since
tho war. Never since the "boys in
gray" wero together with muskets In
their hands will thero have bcon su. a
an assemblage and "rebel yells" will
bo heard even in Laurcns by those
who arc uuwiso enough to stay at
A oue cent a mile rate has been se
cured and tho opportunity for a visit to
Charleston "when tho flowers aro in
bloom" and the city is at her best will
be a great one. So everybody, old men,
pretty girls, (all tho girls between tho
Saluda and tho Enoree arc pretty), tho
sixteen year old boys and the babies
aro expected and a grand welcome
awaits them. It will bo the idea": sea
son for excursions to the Island, to the
Magnolia gardens, and the dozens of
other beautiful and historic prints in
and around Charleston. Tho State
Press Association is to bo in session
here at that time. General Clement A.
Evans, of Georgia, is to address tho
survivors and a distinguished editor Is
to inako a speech to the editors. There
willl ha plays at tho theater every
night, prize drills, concerts, and addi
tional attractions too numerous to men
I wish 1 could write about something
else than politics, butpolltCS is all that
an editor Knows and only guesses at
that. In tho language of arr ox-rc
former of ext inction, "the situation is
peculiar." From my standpoint it is
tunny. I notice that my friend Pet
Smith is announced for sheriff, 1 recall
that at the campaign meeting of 180-1
or 1802, ho introduced one of tho speak
ers as "the peerless Tillman," and It
did not seem to me, (a poor reporter
for a Philistine' and conscienceless
newspaper) that it was an accurate de
scription. But perhaps it was. 1
thought then that Tillman had peers
but now the winds from Laurons waft
me that even Col, Irby Is looked upon
as having peers. It's a bad mix up.?
It is whispered that some of those who
were fond of Col. Irby to distraction
then, are dear lovers now of I hose who
don't love Irby. If my reform friends
in Laurons will take my advice, they
will undertake a peace and unity cam
paign, True the "conservatives," tried
it in 1SD2 und it wouldn't work worth a
cent, but tho need for it now Is far
greater than it was then. I'm u friend
of "peace and unity" and it would be
charming to see i . given another trial,
ft would be delightful to behold Jin
aged and seedy theory dressed up in
new toggery und obtaining vindication.
Vindication is the thing,?this State
is crammed with people who need vin
dication and it is to bo hoped tin '
thousands of them will get it this year.
Sometimes I permit my Imagination
to run away with my better judgment
und the thought comes unbiddon that
perhaps the wicked ADVERTISER has
been right all the time. I fancy that
even the sub-treasury was not the
greatest and best project that ever
Sprung from mortal mind. Who knows?
You all remember how beautiful and
blessed and promising it was, how it
was loaded with chunks of sweetness in
1800 and 1802 and oven In 1894. You
have heard it described by others in
the court house many a time. Where
is it? Has it a grave? Was there
principle In it'-' Principles never die.?
"Truth crushed to earth will rise
again." Were even tho poor ghost of
the sub-treasury to rise from the cold,
damp sod, shaking Its coremonts to
mournfully tell us that wo Antis wore
wrong and wicked, perhaps I could be
lieve it. But whore is your ghost of
the sub-treasury? I font* that the corpse
did not receive Christian burial and
tho ghost itself is hiding its shamed
That other thought comes unbidden
that perhaps tho advertiser was not
so far wrong years ago when it insisted
that Tillmanfsm would not make tax< a
lighter. Is it true that this year taxes
arc higher and that they seem to grow
like .lack's bean stalk? Can it bo that
two-thirds or throe-fouths of the voter8
of Jaiurens have been mistaken all this
time in tho belief that Tillman could
run tho government cheaper than
John Peter Richardson? Why are taxes
higher? Why? Tho interrogation like
Uanquo's apparition will not down,
It has always been my opinion that
Tillman was a far abior and indeed,
with all his faults; a better man than
most of his assistant lenders. Between
Tillman and .lohn Gary Evans, for In
stance, the difference is incomparably
great. But for that very reason Till
man is tho more dangerous. He is am
bitious and ho is more. He has the
power to mislead, ff Tillman had not
been a demagogue, had he been com
paratively patriotic, the best mon
among the Anti-Tillmanitos would
havo been working with him by this
time. Hut they understand him too
well. They have observed him and
learned that, while in some rospCCts
he may be u superior mmi to his subor
dinate spokesmen, he is A self-seeking
politician and will not scruple, toi lolte
political mischief and confusion in or
der to achieve his own private ends.
Many readers of tho A DVERTISER
will remember thftt one ovonlng in the
fall of'on Bon Tillman arrived from
Columbia and made a speech from the
East Court House stops. Capt, Shell
Introduced him OS t ho "head-devil of
thorn all." In those days how lovely
was tho alliance between the three lca
dors of the party, Capt. Shell, Capt.
Tillman and Col. Irby? Then tho.AD
VERTISER WOiS fighting them bard, it
was spokon of as a "bittor paper."
Is thero any ono of those throo great
men to-day loss blttrtr towards each of
the others than was tho ADVERTISER
thon towards thorn all?
I don't supposo that Col. Irby, for in-j
stance, holds tho ADVERTISER in hiy#i
OBtoom,?it would not bo natural if jfo
did but 1 suspect that ho has jus mtfdi
eonfldonco in tho ADVERTISER asfho
has In Bon Tillman. The samo thing
may be seid of either of tho othor/ I?
thosh loaders so mistrust each o/ner,
may it not bo that they wore all wrong
all the time? Ponder the question.
Hy the way. On one occasion above
all others Col. Irby was useful to Till
nian. When the March Convention of
1890 was on tho point of rejecting the
Froposition to make nominations, Col.
rby saved the day, and saved Tillnian.
Tho vote was alradst a tie. How Irby
rushed to Chairman Talbert and had
the announcement of the voto with-held
until he could turn tho tido is historic.
That moment was tho only crisis,
(until now), in Tillman's career. But
for Irby ho would havo beon hurled
back to Kage?eld und probably would
have boon a defeated soro-heud unto
thlsdav. But Irby plucked him from
beneath tho chariot wheels.
8ouator Tillnian does not want Sona
tor Irby to bo re-elected to tho Seuato
but ho is grateful to John Gary Evans.
Senator Tillman is a grateful cuss, any
how. In 1891) was John Gary Evans a
Tillniauite or an Antl or what was ho?
Tho anti-Tillmanitcs havo nothing to
do with tho scullle among tho Tillman
itcs. They should keep out of it. If it
were possible to olect four mon of
brains and honesty aud sterling inde
pendence to tho legislature from Lau
rons, whoso votes for United States
Senator would bo given to tho best
man who otters, whoever ho may bo, it
w ould bo to the a .tvantage of tho wholo
In my opinion Senator Tillnian is un
do!' binding obligations to help oleet
Senator Irby as his own successor. Hut
tho Anti-Tiilnuuiites are under no ob
ligations to oither Irbv or Tillman.

Waterworks in Laarens.
Au Arto9lan Well is ono sunk
into the earth until the internal
pressure is sufficient to force the
water out in a continuous stream
like a fountain. The name is de
rived from the town of Artois in
France where the first well was
bored. Trading with us is like
digging a well?you dont have to
do it but once. After that you will
understand why it id that huudreds
of people give us the endorsement
of their steady patronage. There
aro many reasons for this fact, the
principal ouo Is that our prlcos are
right. .We dont claim that we can
Rave you monoy on everything.
Some things have an established
value the world over. Nothing is
more certain than that no ono house
can always soil the best goods at
prices lower than every ono else.
But there are many thjngs on
which wo aro unquestionably the
lowest and if you will take our en
tire lino, up ono side and down the
other, averaging our prices, It al
ways boils down to that little net
dllTerencc of 5, 10, or perhaps 15
cents on the dollar which you save
from our economical way of doing
business. A small store but a large
capacity for serving you acceptably.
In April and May take Harsaparillu.
Wo have all the best kinds and
none of thoother kinds. Wo have
it at fifty cents, scvonty-fivo cent--,
ninety cents, or ono dollar. Wo
sell our own make and that made
by others. Take your choice but
remember "a little Sarsaparilla
flavor, a smell of sarsaparilla and
a sarsaparilla lablo on tho bottle,
dout make the kind that cures,
though it may make the kind that
sells" (to those who dont know any
better.) The ingredients of our
Sarsaparilla are open to the knowl
edge of all. No secret nostrum
about it. There's lots of health,
energy and appetite bottled up in
it. Come In and talk tho matter
over. Glad to see you whether
