NEWBERRY. S. C,

the faithful work of our firemen tbe

W'e will not say, "Phonix-like, we
have risen from the ashes," ftr thai
sort of talk is threadbare, and then w(
had nothing burned.
We could more appropriately say,
"Duck-like we have risen from th(
water and we propose to keep abov(
the waves," for surely the engine
poured a deluge of water into our office
and for this we are thankful, for th
water was far preferable to the fire
% Water was what we wanted and watej
we got, thanks to the fire department
and our office was saved.
We hope to be on time and will b
on time with live news of local an<
general interest for our subscribers.
The office was badly torn to pi

_ omew r order and
will move forward. Our purpose is to
publish a first class newspaper that can
stand on its merits as such, and in this
purpose we shall not falter one whit,
let come what will.
We desire to express our apprecia
tion of the kindness of The Observer in
offering us the use of its presses until
we can get straightened out. The edi
tor's office for the present is in the
office of Moses & Garlington, diagonal

THE THIRD DISTRICT PRIMARY.
The result of the primary election,
in -the Third Congressional District on
last Friday pits the second race be
tween Colonel George Johnstone, of
Newberry, and Colonel D. K. Norris,
Mr. Norris is the candidate of the
Alliance and the lnrg. vote he received
is due to the fact that he was the alliance
candidate more than to-anything else.
We have .nothing to say against Mr.
Norris, but it seems to us that the
voter ought to consider the fitness of
men for the positions they aspire to
i' fill and select the best possible man.
Tevery flattering vote received by
M.Johnstone was by force of his abil
tyand capacity. New berry did nicely
by him last Friday, but on to-morrow
she ought to do ev.en more. We should
consider that he is our own home man,
has had 4xyiencee Ygislatl~in,anid
when a member of the State Legisla
ture, was one of its most influential
members, and one of whom all New
berry could feel proud. His ability is.
unquestioned. Even this hi.s personal
and political eneinies admit, and if he
should receive the nomination from
this District for Congress would repre
sent it with credit to himself and to his
We have no hesitation in saying that
-: the interests of the farmers would be as
safe in the hands of Mr. Johnstone as
any other man thst could be sent.
Newberry County should give Mr.
Johnstone practically a solid vote cn
What reason or sense is there in run
ning out of the County to vote for a
stranger when we have one of our own
county men, known to us all, that we
We do not advocate sticking to a
-county man simply because he is a
eb)unty man, but when we have one in
the race who has the ability and fitness,
we say stick to him. We should have
that much county pride.
The editor of this paper has not been
a personal friend of Mr. Johnstone for
some years, but we are willing to lay
that aside, and would like to see him
receive the nomination. We mention
this fact simply to show that we are
not advocating his election on personal
grounds, but because he is a New berry
man, and we recognize his ability.
We believe in having some county
pride, and then we want a man of abili
ty in Congress as our representative.
Mr. Norris may have the ability, but
it has not been demonstrated, and he
has no experience.
If the South really needs men in the
next Congress, as she certainly does,
who have the ability to wvatch her in
terests, and the brains to cope with
Congressmen from other sections, the
voters of the Third District should not
hesitate to vote for Mr. Johnstone.
Let Newberry at least do her part by
her own fellow citizen.
"A HUMOROUS CAMPAIGN."
The Greenville News on Tuiesday
had an editorial on the campaign of
.the Third District, headed "The
humors and the lessons of a peculiar
result." Our contemporary says "it is
humor of the incongruous and the un
expected," and that the campaign con
veys the idea that several thousand
farmers had combined to perpetrate on
a certain day a huge practical joke on
everybody, and then speaks of the
several candidates in the race for Con
gress from this District. Murray,
Benet and Bowen, our comemporary
says, had done work and had records
behind them, and some right to ex
pect something. So had Johnstone,
but the News continues:
"Mr. Johnstone has not so much
right to complain, lHe alone received a
majority of all the votes cast in his own
county and he is given the opportunity
for a second race with good prospects
The fact that adds to the humor of
the case on one side and to its bitter
ness on the other is that the man who
beat everybody, who carried counties
against residents of them who should
be strong. in ordinary conditions is a
new man with nothing belfind him
but the Alliance endorsement and the
sub-treasury bill which-if the opinions
ofhJe fi.iancie4s, ststesmen, politicians
ndarax.icea busniness men of all
tion. on Colonel Norris. He may be
man of great ability and be may be will
ing and able to do much good services
He has not, however,had the oppor
tunity to prove his abilities or his pur
pose, and, so-far as our informatioi
goes, he has not during this campaigt
or at any time before it, given any evi
dence of remarkable talent or knowl
edge or independence of thought. 11
is contrary to all precedent- among ou:
people to entrust important duties likq
those of representative in Congress t
men without experience or record an(
with no special claims to consideratioi
beyond endorsement of one or two pro
posed measures of legislation, th<
swallowing whole of a platform pre
pared by strangers in St. Louis and
promise to ignore his party caucus."
Another amusing feature that strike
our cotemporary is the relation of thi
Alliance voter, who does the bidding c
a few, to caucuses. It is really a mys
tery what the relation of certain voter
is to caucuses and how they look a
them and what they think of them
The News says:
"More than 4,000 sturdy Democrat
most of whom would resent with i
blow the accusation of being a bolte
voted against all others for a man wh4
declares in advance that his conviction
of his duty will lead him to bolt hi
party caucus if it does not go his wal
on certain questions. The humor c
the situation is further heightened b,
the evident fact that a large number c
those votes were cast in obedience t
the demand or suggestion of an All
ances caucus. Men who are themselve
bound by a part primary vote
against their naturaY .rsonal and pc
li f&J I Ucu
litia,1g gge -ence w -
uirements for a man pledged not to
be bound by caucus. The series of in
ons;stencies involved in this act is too
complicated for easy analysis, but it is
very funny. It is an entanglement a
good deal like some of the situations in
comic opera and the Alliance voter in
the Third may easily bring on head
ache by trying to puzzle out whether
he is more of an Alliance man or a
Democrat an to determine his relations
to caucus-whether he is its slave or a
rebel against it and where he would be
should the claim of two of the three
caucuses in which he is involved
The way out of this tangle is for
every voter to go the poles to-morrow
and vote as he pleases. To exercise his
right as a free white man in a free
country. That is the object of our
Democratic primaries. To rid the peo
ple from domination by any man or
set of men.

THE "STRAIGHTOUT" CONTENCE.
The Straightout Conference met in
olumbiaSon Tuesday night to consider
what action they should adlopt and
what course they would pursue. It is
said that there were about four hun
dred present, all the counties in the
State except two or three being repre
sented. Newberry had no representa
tives. A part of the conference was
held with closed doors.
A long preamble and two short reso
lutions were adopted.,- The preamble
sets out the necessity of the white peo
ple controlling the government, and
that in the judgment of the conference
the new State constitution adopted at
the August Convention is illegal, null
and void, and condemns the leaders of
the majority in the August Convention,
and concludes with the following reso
Resolved, I. T hat this conference of
Democrats hereby puts on. record its
solemn and emphatic protest against
the illegal and usurpatory action of the

The conference then adjourned. It
was thought that it would suggest a
ticket to be put before the Septenmber

conference did nothing so far as is
given to the public, and no harm can
come of it. No ticket is suggested, and

Yesterday as the road neared the

fulfilling the contract became more
marked and last night another despe

finished to-day guaranteed by shot

SOME FACTS IN THE CASE.
Colonel Bowen Wants Them Upon the Re
cord of the Race in the Third.
'o the Voters of the Third Congression
I desire to express my thanks to the
oters who had the manliness to vote for
ne against the combined influenee of
ertain men of the District Alliance
vho assumed to represent the whole
In their address they were so eager to
nake it strong they deviated slightly
rom the facts. They said the sub-treas
iry plan had been universally endorsed
)y the county and sub-Alliances of the
vhole country, when the facts are that
nany sub-Alliances, to my knowledge
ts an Alliance man, had not endorsed
They say that before endorsing Mr.
Norris the District Alliance considered
;e position taken by each of the candi
lates. Serious objection is made in their
lailure to pledge themselves to support
kIliance demands, uninfluenced by
>arty caucus. They say Mr. Norris is
he only candidate who has complied
vith the request and pledged himself
,o support the demands; and the Dis
,rict Alliance has unanimously en
lorsed him as their candidate for Con
Yress and every true Alliance man is
arged to give him his hearty support.
[t is known that the County Alliance
>f Abbeville positively refused to en
Jorse Mr. Norris. Another slight mis
From my standpoint I don't think
any honest Democrat could pledge
himself to support any measure unin
fluenced by party caucus.
The more the sub-treasury plan is
discussed the objectionable features are
so apparent that almost every man is
fast becoming unqualifiedly opposed
I did not care to have any newspaper
ontroversy during the camlpaign, but
think it well to have the facts made
part of the record.
I will be obliged if the newspap)ers of
the district will print this so that it
ay be seen by all my friends.

THE SECOND RACE.
Colonel Johnstone WVili Make a close Rtace
for Mr. Norris in Anderson.
[From the Greenville News ]
ANDERsoN, S. C., Aug.:2.-Interest
now centres in the coming contest for
Congress between Col. K. D. Norris
and Col. Geo. Johnstone. The latter
gentleman was here last Sunday and
Sonday. He will probably poll a
heavy vote in this county next Friday
as it is thought that Colonel Norris
polled his full strength on the first elec
tion and Colonel Johnstone will get the
bulk of Maj. Murray's votes. Tihe con
test will be very close, but the frienas
of Colonel Johnstone think he will get
ABBEVILLE FOR JoHINsTONE.
GREENWOOD, S. C., August 2~>.-The
much talked of primary for the ThirdI
Congressional District has come and
gone, and the result was nothing more
than expected, a victory for the Farm
ers' Alliance and sub treasury fraud.
The vote which Abbeville County
gave Colonel Norris is proof that she is
less in favor with the suu treasury bill
than any county in the district.
The latest report hereabouts is that
the second race will be run by Colonel
Johnstone and Colonel Norris. The
entire vote cast against Colonel Norris
in the first primary in this county will
go against him in the second. Abbe
vlle voters will be glad to support Col.
George Johns tone. His handsome run
in the first race and his close second of
Mr. Benet are ample proof of his popu
larity in the county.
The second primary will come off 0on

gentleman who is familiar with the
Exdition of the crops oni the va

very conservative estimate of the prob

products the Penitentiary will get b.alf
as the share of the State, except on the
Lexington farm, which is operated
solely for the benefit -of the prison and
which is really more of a convalescent
camp than a farm. The fodder hay,
peavines, potatoes, which will be miade
and are sure to be of considerable value
are taken account of in this estimnate.
