counties of the Piedmont, Captain Ca

Captain Capers, "who have come here
from North Carolina and Tennessee

Captain Capers said that he esteem

the latter was not in a position to do
much for the district.
"If the voters of this congressional

said Captain Capers, "I will be of
great value to them. I will secure
public buildings, for one thing."
The republican nomination is made
by convention and not by the demo

a disreputable organization. I have

which the republican party stands are
as dear to me as my personal integ

the stigma which attaches to the
name of republican in South Carolina
by establishing a respectable party."
Captain Capers said that the title
"lily whites" was a misnomer, as
negroes would not be entirely ex

she was born, on the sloping of the
little cemetery, in Oxford. Mass.,
