Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Mr. J. C. Myers circulated a petition
in Newberry Monday, which he got
numerously signed, calling for a pablic
meeting of citizens in favor of organ
izing a society for the prevention of
cruelty to animals. We are truly glad
to see this, and The Herald and News
gives the movement its heartiest sup
port. It is a step that should have
been taken long ago by our humane
men, but better late than never. We
know there are enough apostles of
Burgh to carry on the movement to a
success and that there is enough nobil
ity of sentiment among our peoplegen
erally to sustain them in their under
taking. There have been cases of
cruelty to animals in this town that
should have been punished. We hope
to see heartless and cruel offenders of
this 'haracter henceforth speedily and
severely called to account. Don't de
lay, but let the good work go on; give
it your warm and earnest support;
strike while the iron is hot, and let it
have the ring of the right metal.
The meeting will be held in the
courthouse at 6.30 p. m. on Friday, the
12th instant. Let there be a full at
tendance and a rousing meeting.

A HOT DAY AT WHITMIRES.
Small Crowd but Good Order-County
Chairman Blesse Refuses to Intro
duce Dr. McIntosh but the
Crowd Calls for Him.
The regular county campaign meet
ing for No. 4 Township was held at
Vhitmires. It was appointed foi
Cromer's Store, but that was called in
and the meeting was held last Friday
at Whitmires. This is on the extreme
edge of the township and very near the
Laurens and Union lines, and as a con
.equence there was a good sprinkling
of Laurens and Union voters present al
The meeting was held in a littlE
group of pines within the corporatE
limits of the town, and the sun shonE
through the pine-needles with all it
A wagon was improvised as a stand,
and some persons said it was a Shep
hord wagon, but it seemed to hold ul
the Tillman speakers with equal gract
and ease as it did the Sheppard men. ]
might remark in passing that all thos
who desire to be with the people-thal
is the majority of the people in New
berry County-had better hasten them
selves upon the Sheppard wagon, be
fore all the good seats and even stand
ing room is occupied. The tide it
running in that direction and, by the
30th of August, all the boys will be ir
line and a great big majority will be
rolled up for the restoration of peace
and harmony among the Democrat
of Newberry County, and the disturb
ing elements in our politics will be
relegated to t.he rear. I was surprised
to find so many Sheppard ment in No.
4 Township. I should not say sur
prised either, knowing the good people
of that section, but it was different
from what I had heard.
There were only about 150 persont
present with a majority of Tillmar
men possibly, but if the Laureus an
Union contingents had been taken oul
there would have been a pretty equa:
division of forces.
There was a base ball game in the
afternoon between the Whitmires auc
Santuc nines, and there is no doubt
that a game of this kind can get uI
more enthusiasm than a political meet.
ing. It was so on this octasioo. TbE
game was called after four innings
when the score stood 21 to 40 in favor
HON. GEO. S. MOWER.
The speaking began about 11 o'clock
and the first speaker was Hon. Geo. S
Mewer, a candidate for the State Sen
ate. He spoke of the subject of taxa
tion and showed from the record thal
the gr V t burden in this line cam(
from t Federal government in the
shape of an indirect tax, which .wai
five times greater than the State and
county taxes. He thought taxatior
should be limited to the necessities el
government,economically and honestly
administered. The only plan to re
duce our State tax was to refund oui
State debt at a lower rate of inter
est. He was also in favor of educatior
and of Clemson College as he had al
ways been. There was no telling the
loss to the 800 or 1,000 young men wh<
had been knocking. for admission tc
this institution since last February
when it was promised the college
should open. It was a great misfor
tune that the college - did not open,
though he did not criticize any one.
He was in favor of the common school
and thought that the property of the
country should bear the burden of the
tax for the support of them.
ME. J. A. SLIGH.
The next speaker was the Rev. J. A.
Sligh, a candidate for delegate to thE
State convention on the Tillmar
ticket. He said some people needed
one kind of talk and some anothei
kind, and he did notknow just what tt
talk about, but he wanted to talk or
those things that would be of the most
advantage to the people; The questior
is what is, best for the people and whal
wilt restore harmony among the people
We wanted inore money of the right
kind and more people of the righi
kind, and in our.Democratic primaries
we wanted free speech, a free balloi
and the rule of the majority. He
thought the Alliance doctrine was
right, but the Alliance did .not want
cheap money as had been accused. HE
did not mean that the bill known ai
the subtreasury in its details was the
thing wanted, but the principles of thE
subtreasury were right. The people of
South Carolina are too much governed
by prejudice. We need a thrifty and a
industrious population that wilt makE
this country blossom like the rose. I.
he had his way he would put a thrifty
intelligent and industrious populatior
in that section of the county. In hi,
section, the lower part of the county,
he would leave it as it is for they havE
already a thrifty, intelligent and in
dustrous white people, who own theim
own homes. He believed in free speech
u free ballot and the rule of the majori
ty among Democrats. Is the Democ
racy threatened in this gountry? HavE
you not heard of the Third party? Il
a man lives on yo'lr place and is undel
obligations to you, don't deprive himo:
free speech and the right to vote as hE
pleases. I am here as one of the Till
man electors. It is not Tillman the
opposition is after. It is not the met
but the measures they represent. Il
Sheppard occupied the position that
Tilman does, the Sheppard men now
would be fighting Sheppard. Speak
ing to the ladies present Mr. Sligh saic
that he was proud of the stand he hac
taken for the Winthrop Traininj
School. He was also proud of the fac1
that N. G. (%nzales, the then corre
spondent of the News and Courier, and
now editor of The State, had shaker
his hand and congratulated him or
the speech he made in favor of th~
Winthrop School. Mr. Sligh though
the politicians were the bane of thi
I did not hear the other speeches ex
cept in broken doses and will not un
dertake a synopsis. Speeches wer
made by Messrs. Johnistone. Miller
Blease and Wilson, cau.didates for the
Legislature; and Sease and Hill.
DR. .TAMES M'INTOSIH.
Just before the close of the meeting
calls were made for Dr. James McIn
tosh, but Mr. H. H. Blease as count3
chairman refused to introduce Dr
McIntosh and adjourned the meeting
The crowd did not disperse, however
and the calls for Dr. McIntosh weri
renewed and he responded without in
troduction and was given a most at
tentive and interesting hearing.
He said he had come to speak it
place of Mr. Goggans, one of the elec
tors on the Sheppard ticket. TherE
was one point to which he desired tc
direct their attention, and that was the
sale of the State lands. He had been
told by Col. Gibbes, in the'Secretary oI
State's office, that during the past fif
teen months 350,000 acres of this land
had been sold in South Carolina by the
Sinking Fund Commission, and that
on the first of August 30.000 acres were
sold. He said that he had examined
the Register, the News and Courier,
the Greenville News and The State
and had failed to see any advertise
ment of this land and it-had not been
properly advertised. Mr. Gibbes said
that after the sale the 1st of August,
they would sell no more land until late
in the fall and then have it better ad
vertised than they had done. Does
any of you know when that land was
sold or where one acre of it is? You, as
citizens of South Carolina, own that
land and it has been sold without your
knowledge. And most of it sold from
15 to 20 cents an aere. If any of it was
ever appraised I have not been able to
find out when, or where, or how. This
land was sold in the months of June.
July and August, when the law does
not permit administrators and execu
tors to sell land at this. season of the
year. I don't say this land is worth
ten cents, or fifty cents, or $1.00, or
$5.0 pne acre,- r Ihave never seen an
acre of it and know personally nothing
about it. It has been represented to
me as good timber land-good cypress
swamp land-swamp land-pasture
land and marsh land accordingly as i"
was located. But whatever the land
may have been worth-the mode of
selling was wrong, and I do say it has
not been properly sold. Not sold as a
set of business men would have sold
land. Not sold as executors or admin
istrators would have sold estate land.
No man's land should be sold without
his knowing it. Who in this assembly
has ever seen a notice of sale of one
acre of this 30.000 acres sold August 1,
1892; or of this 350,000 acres sold pre
viously? Not one of us, and the whole
State is in as great ignorance as we are
on this matter. Our land-your land
and my land-we all own it-is gone
it has been sold from under our feet
and we know nothing at all about it.
This land is under the supervision
of the Sinking Fund Commission,
which is composed of the Governor,
Secretary of State, the Chairman of the
Ways and Means Committee in the
House and of the Judiciary Committee
of the Senate.
The points that Dr. McIntosh made
were in brief these:
1st. This land had never been ap
praised before it was put on the mar
ket, as is done by the United States
and all the States that have State land
to s;ll: and it should have been witb
drawn from sale if it did not bring the
2. This .land had not been properly
advertised and sold so as to realize its
3. If, as has been said by Mr. Gibbes,
these lands were sold to get them back
on the .tax lists, what does it amount
to to sell 1,000 acres of land at 15 cents
an acre-only $150, and the tax on that
would be say only $1.50.
The State sacrifices her land and
when it is put on the tax list, the taxes
at last amount to nothing and the
State loses her land and gets no return.
Dr. McIntosh said he wanted Gov.
Tillman to explain it. He was only
stating facts as he had received them
from the Secretary of State's office in
There were several questions and a
good many interruptions during the
speech. It was evident that this was
a new and unexpected issue and no
one present seemed prepared to meet
it or to answer it.
COUNTY CHAIRMAN H. H. BLEASE
was called for and mounted again the
Sheppard wagon, but did not reply to
Dr. McIntosh further than to say that
it was a very remarkable thing to him
that Dr. McIntosh would get in his
buggy and ride eighteen miles simply
to say that some few thousand acres of
State land had been sold. He thought
it was better to ?ell it at a low price and
get it on the tax books, than to let it
stand as it has been and pay no
taxes to the State: He then
talked about Richardson's administra
tion being in debt and Sheppard's bank
charging 10 per cent. At the conclu
sion of this the crowd repaird to the
base ball ground and gave vent to their
enthusiasm by applauding for their
There were quite a number of ladies
present at the meeting and every thing
passed off serenely.

Writes or those Meetings.
GisTs, August 3.-Assembled hereare
about 200 persons. Of this number a
goodly per cent. are ladies. Candidates
are very plentiful. Indeed, it is the
best turnout we have had at any meet
Speeches were made by Messrs. Jno.
T. Duncan, W. D. Hardy, J. M. John
stone, L. P. Miller, Jno. W. Scott, Jno.
C. Wilson and Cole. L. Blease, and
Messrs. Mower and Sligh, and T. S. 1
Col. Walter H. Hunt, Jr., was called
to represent Geo. B. Cromer on the con
servative ticket. The Rev. J. A. Sligh
had the reply.
Besides these, very prominent was
citizen "Snib" Ruff, also a good little
crowd from No. 10. In short, this was a
very political meeting. While there
was plenty of life and stir in the crowd
-the very best of order prevailed. The
two factions were well represented. In
fact these are the best fighting grounds
in the county.
The speeches were good, yet nothing
new. Nothing out of the common run.
The only noticeable feature is that the
Tillmanite speakers make it an em
phatic point to draw the lines sharp
and deep. Also, to their shame, some
of them delight to criticise and censure
Wade Hampton. But to the people's
honor these taunts always fall flat.
The meeting was held in the grove at
Mr. Thos. W. Keitt's, a grand place for
such an occasion. To add to its beauty,
the weather was "perfectly grand."
Col. J. C. S. Brown acted as chair
man and presided with justice and ease
until Chairman Blease arrived. Thirty
minutes are allowed to every speaker.
The meeting ended with considerable
enthusiasm over the speeches of Col.
Hunt and Rev. Sligb. As the sun was
near setting we adjourned to meet
again to-morrow at Mt. Pleasant, No.3

night." Ah, well.
I'm not talking of the night alto
gether. You may brag of nice people,
good treatment if you want to, but I
can tell you once for all time to come,
that you won't find a place like Mr.
Albert Gibson's every day in the week.
To say that we enjoyed ourselves would
be to say very little.
With reluctance we departed, and
here we are. It is a beautiful place.
The grand old oaks knit their mighty
branches together into one powerful
Assembled here are about 100 ladies.
Sweet ladies too, for they all brought
baskets and we had a grand old picnic
Chairman Blease called the meeting
to order and made some very appro

introduced Messrs. Geo; S. Mower, W.
D. Hardy, J. M. Johnstone, L. P. Mil
