MAYOR RHETT NOW
This Is (he Opinion of One Who Has
Kept Tab on the Senatorial
Following is an interesting interview
to Tho Clieenvillo News by Mr. Jas*
Hoyt, the Columbia correspondent to
Tiie News and Courier. Mr. Hoyt was
in Greenville n few clays last week and
when Approached made the following
"Mr. Khett. is making a splendid im
pression whorevor lie goes," said Mr.
Hoyt last night. "I attended the meet
ing at Union Saturday and Columbia
yesterday and at both places be gained
friends and votes. At Columbia B
friend of mine said to me that before
the meeting he had said he did not
think he could vote for Khett but after
hearing him speak he went up to Mr.
Khett and declared be would not only
vote for him but do anything ho could
to help him.
"If all voters in the State could hear
Mr. Khett and neo what U man he is be
would be elected on the first ballot, de
clared this man.
"In my opinion," said Mr. Hoyt,
"the only thing Mr. Khett has to fear
at this time is that some of those who
would like to see him elected may not
think he has any chance and for that
reason they may become indifferent or
may even cast their votes for another
candidate in order to defeat some other
candidate. To all such I would say that
if my judgment is worth any thine; at
all they are losing a splendid chance to
put in the senate a splendid man, for I
have kept up with the situation and Mr.
Khett is gaining every day and is re
garded as one of the leading candidates.
"The fait that Mr. Khett came out
late has been interpreted by some op
posed to him as an indication that lie
cannot win but there is no good logic
or reason in Ihis, Mr. Khett was well
known all over the State before lie be
came a candidate for tho senate, and
he had his friends who went instantly
to work when he made his announce
ment, lie was known as a safe busi
ness man, well equipped and a student
of affairs. His campaign speeches
have served to strengthen tho already
g.I impression ho had made through
out the State. The fact that nearly all
the other candidates are attacking Mr.
Khett, not really because of his politics
but because be is strong, is of itself
sufficient indication of bis growing
"Reports that Khett is not in it are
put out by those who don't want him in
it, and that is all there is to it. To the
people of the up-country who may not
know Mr. Khett so well you can say he
is a sound Democrat, a most conscien
tious public servant and a man of the
highest character and ability."
After a two weeks' visit to his father,
Mr. .). C. Miller, of the I lopewell sec
tion, Mr. W. I?. Miller was in the city
Monday afternoon returning to his home
in Austin, Texas, where he has been
engaged in business for the past ten
years. lie gave us a pleasant call
while in the city and from now on Tho
Advertiser will 00 a weekly visitor to
Mr. Miller's adopted home." While here
Mr. Miller traveled over a considerable
portion of the 't?te and he says that
the crop prospect is much better than;
in Texas, taken as a whole.

The Piano and Organ Man
A few words which you cannot help believing;
unless you are prejudiced.
SELL AS RENOWNED PIANOS for tone, quality, elasticity
/-J| of touch and skilled workmanship as are made. I have no
schemes to sell a piano. When I sell a piano it is direct
from the factory to the purchaser, there being no unnecessary ex
pense. The price is the very lowest possible and the profit shorter
than of any dealer in this section, I do not have pianos drayed
around and left on trial, which adds to the cost and the buyer
pays it. If you know these facts and do not buy of me (for I sell
for less) then you simply prefer to pay from $75 to $150.00 more,
whHi is nothing but robbing one's self or of your loved ones.
