.'that it is rumored in Abbeville that the

1promise bet ween Gen. Y. J. Pope, of
Newberry, and Col. E. lB. Gary, of
Abbeville, both of whom are candi
dates for Attorney General on the
-Tillmnan ticket. It is said that Col.
Gary would likely be tendered the
Lieutenant Governorship on' the Till
man ticket with a view to leaving the
ffield clear to Gen. Pope. We have
heard nothing further of the rumor.
We publish elsewhere what the Press
jand Banner said. I
The Herald and News so far has not
expressed its preference for Governor (
among the various candidates who
have been mentioned, as likely to be in
the race. We presume that we mightt
be permitrted that privilege. Ex-Gov-.
ernor John C. Sheppard, of Edgefield,
is the man of our choice, and we hope
to see him enter the race.

will remember that the mass meetingc
appointed for this place on June 13th,
is neither a Tillman meeting nor an
auti-Tillman meeting, but that it is a

desired than that of Attorney-'*enera!.
from the fact that if the Tillnan ticket
is elected. the Lieutenant-Governor
would possibly become the (;overnor
after the fourth of next March. The
success of the Tillman faction would
bring about a revolution of political
sentiment and a breaking up of old
lines of policy. For this rea.son Senator
Hampton would find opposition to his
re-election. and Governor Tillmsn
would likely be nothing loth to taking
the place which Senator Hampton now
