Oamden, July 21.-The campaign
passed the half mile post, today
<lassic Camden, rich in historic
Here is the momlment to the Con.
orate dead, in honor of the gal.
't Dickinson, lieutenant colonel 01
Palmetto regiment, who was as
cious to got a place in the picture
or the flashing of the guns as any
her member of the fiold or staff.
Hard by Hampton park, whero the
'ndidatos spoke, stands the well
own monument in memory of
aron DeKalb, who gave his lifo for
is adopted country.
INear by is the range known as
obkirk hill, where Green so success
lly met the British. And not more
an six miles off is the field of the
ttle of Camden, where Gatos met
ith his inglorious defeat-Gates,
bf whom it was said he never drew
' his horso until he reached (Ulhar
fto for battle, in which ho ex
;Ohanged his northern laurels for
southern weeping willows.
? Another feature of this place is
the opportunity which the candidat.,
enjoyed of sojourning at Upton
Oourt, so well known not only as ia
winter sanitarium, but as an agreo
a eable inn at all times.
Though I write with a running
pen, reference should be mtade to
the memories which the town's come
tery affords, memories connect.I
with such men as Kershaw and Ken
nedy,- and other knightly herons of
the lgdt cause.
" Ani tp crown it all, this is'a com
munity known for the graces of its
womanhood and the excellent cha r
acteristics of its manhood, illustrated
in the field and in the fornm over
since revolutionary days. Memorins
here of church, memories of State,
memories of war!
The candidates were entortained
at the expense of the county exoc
tive committee, and in Mr. T. J.
Kirkland's hands they fared well.
The meeting was a small one, there
being only several hindred porsontH
present, but as an evidence of the
era of good fooling, I am told that
there were present a score or so of
those who have not attended a po
litical meeting in this county for
THES RAILRIOAD) SEXTET.
Mrt. Berry spoke first. le thonghtl
ho could fill t lieo 0ico of railroad
commissioner as a practical business
an. He did not believe in oppress
!ig the roads. There wore no boys
r nning for this position. They are
all men wth records, which records
the people should sift and vote forn
the best man. As an insurance man
for many years he had settled mn
financial matters, andl was able te
arbitrate betwoen the people and the
Mr. Evans yielded to no man when
it came to a business transaction.
The interests of the peopie nud the~
railroads were linked, andl he wa.n

Mr. Giarris said lie never coul
joke when talking politics, and( hi.
face showed it. Hoe know somothlin~
about the burdens of the people and
the discriminiation of the rail roads.
He warned the crowdl that when
candidate told them that any olliet
wvas beyond the capacity of the or
dinairy jurymuanr, that office shonhl
be abolished, because any rancamlit
committed therein conl not he
caught up with.
Mr. Thomas unrolled his map and
declared he spoke from the rec.ords
showing that he kept his oath to ac
jnst ice to the people andi ihe roads
Tho other members of the board ima
made a trade with thie roads, saying
you work tihe fertilizer rate and we
will recoupI you hy at raise oni othe,
articles, and he hatd protested ag- inis
it. He presented himself as an ab.
unolutely clean and irreroahaiha

could not afford tq fight his col

Mr. Gray replied by ra ling from
the records a resolution of ored by
Thomas to the offect, that tho fort.i
l:zor rato b) roluced 25 per cent.
and that the rail roads r0copl) t.hin
Holves by raisilig time rates on mer

tried to fool the people by "evening
up" things with the railroads.

Mr. Stansoll, the gentiall gen tleman1
from .Ivllko, was beamning wiih smiles
as ho spoke. I am no sIlvor toiguted

fresh from the field of Barnwell

candidiato for railroad roninissioier.
