LAURENS, S. C, SEPTEMBER l<>. 1908.
SENATOR fi. I). SMITH.
Years have elapsed since South Caro
inla has seen such a campaign as was
ended last Tuesday by the sweeping
election to the United States g< n < o of
Hon. B. I). Smith, of Florence tip
posed to him was probably the mos1
widely known campaigner, perpetual
candidate, in the State; a representa
tive of 1902 Tillmanism, the legislator
of dispensary fame, an ox-governor,
the erstwhile farmers' friend, but more
recently the business man's candidate.
Many people honestly believed that
John Gary Evans would go to the senate
this year, but THE PEOPLE said not.
The people rule. Mr. Smith received a
most flattering vote a handsome ma
jority, of which he maybe justly proud.
While we by no means especially ad
mire Mr. Smith, still we are convinced
that he has been and is giving carnc t
thought and labor in behalf of the farm
er; because of this alone he is entitled
to our respect and commendation. Mr.
Evans is the farmers' friend during a
campaign. Mr. Smith has been hon
ored by the people cf hi Stale; we
hope, ami in fact we believe, ho will
prove himself worthy the trti t.
TWO YEARb HENCE.
Says the Spartanburg Journal:
The candidates for governor two years
hence will probably be ('. C. Feather- I
atone of Laurens. Richard I. Manning 1
of Sumter, It. Goodwyn Uhett of Char
leston and Cole L. Blcaseof Newberry.
And there may be others.
Just why the Journal thinks Mayor
Uhett will be a candidate for governor
two years hence, we cannot say. Ml*.
Uhett would make just as good a gov
ernor as senator, and he would do for
South Carolina what he has done for
Charleston, and more; but we hope he
will not offer for the governorship In
Mayor Uhett should go to the senate
four or six years hence, but he does not
need the governorship as a stepping
stone. His campaign just closed was one
of the most remarkable in our recollec
tion. Comparatively a stranger in the
state, he entered the lists and made a
clean clear cut campaign, running oil
his own merits; the vole he received
was a compliment to such methods and
had he been better known the result
might have been different; let him offer
for the senate again.
As We see it, the candidate who can
best base his claim:; for gubernatorial
honors in 1910 is Hon. C. C. Feather
stone, of Laurcns. The people of South
Carolina have indicated in the election
of 1906 and 1908 their sentiment oh the
whiskey question, of course they will
not stand for Cole L. Blcase, nor what
he represents; and while Hon. Richard
I. Manning is a clean, strong man, his
views on the state dispensary have been
turned down by the voters. Stronger
and stronger is growing the sentiment
that SoUth Carolina BhouW no more lic
ense her counties to sell whiskey than
that she herself be n whiskey dealer.
Mr. Fcathorstono is the logical candi
date for governor in 1910.
W*0 are not disposed to crow over any
success or victory such is not our idea.
But we do say it, and without reserve,
that the prohibitionist in Laurens should
feel encouraged over the successes just
achieved. Now for the November i lec
tion! There must be no let-up in our
activities if Laurens county wishe s to
free herself from her public disgrace.
Every voter should re-register, no
matter if you did vote last Tqe day
without re-registering; you cannot do
so in November.
Our congratulations to the successful
candidates. To the defeated wo say
try again: remember Joe Johnson.

den. A. P. Stewart Dead.
BUoxi, Miss. Gen. Alexander P.
Stewart, one of the last two surviving
lieutenant generals of the Confederate
States Army, died at his home here
Sunday. Although in his 87th year and
suffering from the infirmities of old age
Gen. Stewarts death was sudden and
came as a distinct surprise to relatives
A native of Tennessee, Gen. Stewart
lived the greater part? of his life in that
State but os late had been making his
home in Biloxi, where he found the salt
air and pine woods of great benefit to
He was born at Itogersyille, Hawkins
county, Tennessee., Otc. 2, 1821, and
received his early education in that
state. Later he was appointed in the
United States academy at West Point,
and graduated from that institution in
At the outbreak of the Civil war he
was commissioned as a brigadier gen
eral in the Confederate States army,
made a major general in 18G3, and re
ceived his commission as a lieutenant
general one year later.
The close of the war found him in
command of the Army of Tennessee.
Only three months ago, Gen. Stephen
D. Lee, commander in chief of the Uni
ted Confederate veterans, who held the
commission of a lieutenant general in
the Confederate army, answered the
last roll call, and his death left only
two officers of the Confederacy of equal
rank. These were Gen. Stewart and
Gen. Simon Bolivar Buckner of Kentu
cky. Gen. Stewarts death Sunday
therefore leaves Gen. Buckner as the
only surviving lieutenant general in the
Confederate States Army.
The body was shipped shortly before
midnight to St. Louis, Mo., where Gen.
Stewart lived for a number of years.
The funeral was held in St. Louis

Lawyer Duncan Is Disbarred.
The supreme court on last Friday
handed down a decision in the disbar
merit proceedings against .John T. Dun
can, ordering Duncan's certificate
license to practice before the courts of
the state cancelled. The decision is
based on the ground that Duncan pre
sented false affidavits to the court in a
case in which he was attorney for a
negro. The negro, Hunter, had been
convicted of shooting a* member of a
sheriff's party and the false affidavit
introduced was one purporting to have
been made by another negro, one Tay
lor, in which the latter confessed that
he had done the shooting, and oxhunor
ated Hunter. The decision also states
that any hesitation as to putting Dun
can's disbarment is dispelled by the
facts that a number of reputable mem
bers of the Columbia bar swore at the
hearing that they would not believe
Duncan on oath and that seme years
ago Duncan was summoned he fore the
supreme court to show cause why he
should not be disbarred. At thai lime
the court took a linientview of his case
and dismissed the charge after adminis
tering a reprimand to the defendant.
In 1896 Duncan opposed ex-Governor
John Gary Evans for the nomination
for United States senator.
