LAURENS, S. C, MARCH 4, 1908.
J. D. M. SHAW.
The editor of this newspaper is not
yet a very old man and feels as though
he had only been at work for a few
years. Ten years ago it was a com
paratively uncommon occurrence for
one of his comrades, one of the men
with*whom he mingled in business and
other affairs, to drop out of the ranks,
but it seems now that they are gonjg.
every month and evejy..wj>$k:^-"'
Shaw was a much
older man than the writer; Col. Shaw
fought for the Confederacy; but it was
our fortune to know him well, to have
pleasant business relations with him,
and to feel for him the warmest affec
tion. We acknowledge that as the
years DasS the men whom we trust
grow less and less in numbers (not al
ways because they die) and we have
come to feel very keenly the loss of a
man who is faithful to his friends; who
does not know how to be a double
dealer and who does not set too great
iitore by a mere dollar. Time was when
Col. Sh w and The Advertiser were
very far apart on account of political
differ' ncet^; we doubt if he had any
parti* ularjadmiration for its editor then,
and tin n we lacked the appreciation of
him that 'pe later had during many
years. W . are thankful that a warm
regard gie v up between us. Take him
for all in ail. we set it down as our be
lief that hi was one of the finest fel
low.^. ^^"Laurens. There are men of
bs^irtffr culture, of keener and better
trained mind, whose opportunities have
been better and who hold themselves
far higher, who yet were never his
equals, who are not worthy to be men
tioned by the side of him, because, af
ter all the sterling virtues of truth
telling and truth acting are so rare
when one seeks them in the stress and
warfare of business and political life.
Col. Shaw had a great heart; if he ever
did a mean and small act we never
heard of it; and we have heard of
many, many good things that he did
for those who needed help. There has
been no more hospitable home in this
county in all its history than was his.
He was a good husband and father and
a kind master to his servants. He was
one of the best farmers in South Caro
lina; he was public spirited; and in all
things he did his duty as he saw it.
His name is high in the bright roll that
the angel writes of those "who loved
THE DELEGATES AT LARGE.
Supposing that South Carolina sends
to the national Democratic convention
in Denver a delegation instructed to
support Mr. Bryan (which it ought not
to do) it should send delegates who are
Bryan men, who know why they are
Bryan men and who may be depended
upon to stand by Bryan first, last and
all the time. While we are opposed to
the nomination of Bryan and to instruc
tions to delegates we suggest a ticket
for Bryan delegates at large.
One of the delegates at large should
be Congressman Joseph T. Johnson.
He is the most dyed-in-the-wool Bryan
man in South Carolina and understands
Mr. Bryan's doctrines better than do
most men. He has studied them.
John Marshall, of Charleston, is as
faithful a Bryan man as is Congress
man Johnson and has studied his poli
cies in the same way. Mr. Mai shall,
moreover, knows Mr. Bryan well, per
sonally, and is just the kind of man to
be useful to him in the convention.
Besides, Mr. Marshall is an able man,
a good speaker and has a wide acquaint
ance not only in this but in other States,
North and South. He would be of
great credit to South Carolina in Den
Another delegate should be William
E. Gonzales, editor of the Columbia
State. Mr. Gonzales is of more service
to Mr. Bryan than is any other South
Carolinian. The News and Courier is
opposed to Mr. Bryan's nomination;
The State favors it; without The State
Mr. Bryan's cause would lack a news
paper champion of influence throughout
South Carolina. Common gratitude
should car.?c the Bryan followers to
send Mr. Gonzales to the convention ?
to send him whether he shall be a can
didate or not. Without The State the
Bryan men would be sadly in need.
For the other place a man who is
probably not at heart a Bryan man,
who is a luke-warm, pale, hesitant,
don't care sort of Bryan man only be
cause he believes that the Democrats
are resolved to nominate Bryan will be
sent, though he will be of more or less
danger to Bryan unless real Bryanites
are there to watch him. We allude to
Senator Tillman. If we were for
Bryan we would vote to send some
other man in the Senator's place, but
as Senator Tillman is to be sent any
how we have no objection to his going.
But Johnson, Marshall and Gonzales
are the ablest and truest trio of Mr.
Bryan's friends in South Carolina.
FOR RAILROAD COMMISSIONER.
Mr. Frank C. Fishburne, of Charles
ton, is a candidate for railroad commis
sioner. He is a good business man, has
plenty of ability and education, and is
a sterling Democrat who was a hard
worker for Democracy in 1876 in Colle
ton county, his native home. While we
aro not yet prepared* to advise our
friends as to whom they should vote for
for this office we do not know who is
going to run ?we hope that he will not
be forgotten in Laurens.

$100 paid by Dr. Shoop for any re

tics- is certainly complete. It's $100
against 25 cents?pretty big odds. And

Teachers Paid Too Little.
The city of Atlanta finds increasing
difficulty in securing competent teach
ers for its public schools. Owing to
the meager salaries teachers prefer to
go in other lines of business or go to
cities where better salaries are paid
teachers. Superintendent Slaton says
that this diffeulty is constantly grow
ing, and that unless salaries arc in
creased the trouble is likely to assume
serious proportions in time. Efforts
have been made here to secure in
creases, but so far without results.?

Mr. J. Williams Jones died at his
home, the old Irby mansion, in Lau
rens, on February l'J, 1908, from the
effects of a most violent attack of
grippe. Another good man has been
laid to rest in that <populous "City of
the Dead." It has been said that "The
good die young," but we are glad to
know that it is not always true, that
many "good" are spared to a long life
among us who need and love them so,
making the world so much better for
their having live.I. "It is after death
we measure men," and this man so
measured comes up to the standard set
by a long line of noble ancestry. His
race is run and we can stand at the
end and, as one who has known him
since a boy, can see no blot on the
clean, pure life of this Christian gentle
man who has been a worker in God's
vi ieyard more than fifty years. From
a boy he was the main prop and stay of
his old parents?a most dutiful son,
t3nder as a woman and yet strong to
provide and care for their wantu, A
loving husband and father and a gocd
friend. True in his relations in life and
always prompt in business. What a
blessed thought to loved ones left
beb?"'! that he had no wild oats sown
II) the past and_no regrets ta look back
Upon in remorse of conscience when
the end came. He had only to answer
the call to "Come up higher." The
Bible has been his study always, but
especially during the last several
months would he sit poring over its
precious promises as if he had some
prescience of what was coming.
Mr. Jones was born at Laurens C. H.
and was in the 69th year of his age.
He was the son of (Jen. Thomas Fos
ter Jones, who was at one time a
wealthy merchant and planter, as well
as prominent in political circles, having
represented this county in both Houses
of the Legislature for twelve years.
His mother was Miss Emily C. Thomp
son, a daughter of Judge Waddy
Thompson and sister to Gen. Waddy
Thompson, who was minister to Mexico
from this government.
Mr. Jones was twice married - blessed
in both cases with most excellent wo
men who fully understood the sacred
duties of wife and mother, and made
his home a place of peaceful happiness,
as like unto the Paradise as we can im
agine on earth. His first wife was
Miss Antho T. Gary, daughter of Dr.
Charles Gary and granddaughter of
Gen. John King Griffin, who represent
ed this District in the national Congress
from 1830 to 1840, when he declined re
election. His second wife, who sur
vives him, was Miss Tallulah Irby,
daughter of Col. James Irby, a very
distinguished lawyer of Laurens, and
at one time lieutenant governor of this
State. They, like himself, were de
scended from the house of Thompson.
This dear wife and four children sur
vive him. The sons are Prof. Thomas
F, Jones, principal of Woodruff school,
and J. Williams Jones, Jr., of Green
ville. The daughters are Mrs. Alex
Brunson, of Columbia, and Miss Cather
ine Jones, at home with her parents.
His only living brother is Mr. Henry T.
Jones, of Rome, Ga., the only remain
ing member of a very large family.
