Two weeks of the campaign have been
completed. Tillman and Talbert have
livened up a little and had a passage or
two, but otherwise the gubernatorial
candidates are dwelling in harmony, ad
vocating the same doctrines, inciuding
the dispensary, and complimenting the
ladies. Dr. Timmerman talked back to
Mr. Tillman the other day and Mr. Tal
bert is advocating the doctrine that the
tax of the white people for schools
should go to the education of white
children, and the tax paid by the negro
should be all that the negro children
should have. Apart from these inci
dents and slight differences it is a har
monious and a unanimous campaign
among the candidates for governor.
From the reports it looks that Mr.
Heyward is the favorite, but then it
should be remembered that the party
has been in his section of the State.
The candidates for Lieutenant-Gover
nor have been getting on very well ex
cept the passages between' Mr. Blease
and Mr. Gary. They do not seem ex
actly to agree as to how the other one's
record has been on the dispensary. We
understood two years ago that Mr.
Gary was something of a local optionist.
Mr. Blease seems able to hold his own
in the passages while Col. Sloan goes
ahead and does not clash with his op
Mr. Gunter and 11r. Stevenson are
still sparring though the reporter says
it is strictly parliamentary.
The candidates for Secretary of State
seem to be moving along smoothly.
Col. J. Harvey Wilson is from Lee
County and has been a member of the
Legislature for several years. Mr.
Jesse Gantt is from Spartanburg and is
at present chief clerk in the office of
Secretary of State, and is familiar
with the duties of the office and entire
ly competent. The other candidate is
Col. J. T. Austin of Greenville, who has
also seen service in the Legislature.
For Adjutant General is Col. Jno. D.
Frost who is a born military man, a
graduate of the Citadel, served in the
Spanish war as adjutant of the first
regiment, and is at present assistant ad
jutant general, and has done good work
for the department. Col. J. C. Boyd,
of Greenville, has long been prominent
in the volunteer service, and Col. J. M.
Patrick, of Anderson, who has a mili
tary training. Mr. Paul Ayer, also of
Anderson, and George Douglas Rouse,
For Comptroller General is A. W.
Jones who was a clerk in the office in
Columbia, but who resigned when he
became a candidate, and who was for
several years Auditor of Abbeville
County, a very efficient man. Col. N.
W. Brooker who made the race two
years ago and was for a long time in
the office of Secretary of State. Sena
tor W. H. Sharp, of Lexington, is also
a candidate and he is a good stump
.speaker. Mr. G. L Walker, of Green
ville, and at present one of the clerks
in the office, is also a candidate. He
served Greenville as county treasurer
before he went to Columbia. These
gentlemen as well as those for Adju
tant General are making a harmonious
For Railroad Commissioner there are
about ten candidates. We do not know
all of them personally. Mr. J. C. Wil

years wantls six more. Then there is
'Senator Ban~ks L. Caughman, of Saluda.
Mr. J. G. Wolling, of Fairfield, who is
a farmer and a merchant and at one
time worked in the shops at Helena.
Mr. Jno. G. Mobley, also of Fairfield,
who is a member of the legislature.
Mr. W. Boyd Evans who was Governor
Ellerbe's private secretary. Mr. Cans
ler, of York, Mr. Jepson, of Florence,
and Mr. H. H. Prince, of Anderson,
and Berry, of Darlington, and Mr. H.

member of the Legislature.

Mr. A. B. Cargile, editor of the Lee
County Leader, in writing of the Sena
torial campaign meeting in that county,
after reviewing the speeches of the
several candidates comes to the conclu
sion to give his support to Col. George
Johnstone, and has the following to say:
"His opening speech at Columbia was
a veritable gem. We have known Col.
Johnstone personally for fourteen years,
and no man is more appreciated at his
home. A prominent gentleman said of
him: 'He is a fluent, forceful speaker,
a bold and aggressive debater, able to
hold his own with any man or set of
men, and best of all. he is a lifelong
and staunch Democrat, and possesses
a thorough, liberal and finished educa
tion.' Having lived but fifteen miles
apart for several years, we can not be
censured for supporting Col. Johnstone,
practically an old neighbor. When
aught is successfully established,against
him, we'll drop him, 'instanter."
Today is dividend day and the holders
of stocks and bonds will be made happy,
provided their stocks are dividend pav
ing. The State of South Carolina will
pay out about $175,000 in interest. In
Newberry the Newberry Cotton Mills,
the National Bank, the Savings Bank,
and the Commercial Bank will pay out
$25,000 in dividends today. That is not

The correspondent of the Greenville
News, in reviewing the Senatorial can
vas in Sunday's paper has the following
to sz.: of Col. George Johnstone:
"Hon. George Johnstone is the orator
of the party. Hi, word pictures are
sp lendid. His oratory, however, never
impresses one a.; bombast, but is sus
tained throughout and has the ring of
sin,;rity back of it. Col. Johnstone's
speeches make fine impressions, and he
possesses the confidence of the people
wherever he goes."
In the changes made in the Atlantic
Coast Line railroad by its purchase of
the Plant System, we are glad to note
the promotion of Mr. W. J. Craig, for
merly of Augusta. He was passenger
and freight agent of the C., & W. C.
He is now made general passenger
agent of the Atlantic Coast Line with
headquarters at Wilmington, N. C.
Mr. Craig is a first-class railroad man
and always the courteous gentleman,
and the Coast Line has done well in giv
ing him this promotion.
With Mr. Cleveland speaking at the
Tilden meeting for harmony and speak
ing of a large part of the Democracy as
husks, and Mr. Bryan coming back at
him in strong language, the prospect
for harmony in the ranks is not very
encouraging. If there is to be harmony
in the Democratic fold there must be
a mutual understanding among the
leaders, and there must be compromise
without a sacrifice of principle. Neither
side must think it is the w'ole Demo
cratic party or the ermodiment of
Democratic principles and that every
thing else is husks for swine.
Sam Jones says: "Democratic har
mony is an impossibility this side of
some burials in the Democratic ranks,"
political burials, of course.
Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Bryan and Mr.
Watterson, the brilliant editor, repre
sent three classes who are all mad with
each other, and it looks, if we are ever
to get together in sufficient harmony to
win a victory, we must hunt a new
leader. Down here we are all Demo
crats and are likely to remain such for
a long time to come.
We do not see how the action of the
Newberry bar in the matter of Mr.
Stevenson's appointment to hold an
extra court should have any effect upon
the race for Attorney General. It is a
fact that some of the bar did not care
to have the court at the time named.
It is also a fact that some of the cases
which it was desired to try were
against the Seaboard Air Line of which
road Mr. Stevenson was at that time
attorney, and of course the lawyers
would not have consented to go to trial
with these cases before a judge who
was at the time attorney for the road.
But that fact was no reflection upon
Mr. Stevenson as a man or a lawyer.
Mr. Stevenson and Mr. Gunter are both
good men and good lawyers and either
one is fully capable of discharging the
duties of the office to which they as
Because Mr. Gunter has been ,the
Assistant Attorney General is rio bar to
his aspiring to the position of Attorney
General. We know him to be capable
and efficient and a student, and the
State will not suffer if he is elected,
and it now looks that he is going to be
Mr. George R. Koester, in a long in
tervie w in the daily newspapers, has
given what he considers the reasons
why his appointment as internal revenue
collector was not confirmed by the Sen
ate. He was appointed by the Presi
dent on the 21st of last October, when
Congress was not in session, and has
been in charge since the 4th of Novem
ber. The Senate has not confirmed his
nomination, and when that body ad
journs his commission will expire. He
does not expect reappointment.
The main reason he gives for the ac
tion of the Senate in refusing to con
firm his nomination is the charge that
he took part in the Gaston lynching af.
fair in 1893, first made by the State,
and then taken up by Deas and other
negro politicians. He had satisfied the
President of his innocence and the
President had stood te him. He thinks
that Senator Tillman did him more
harm than Deas, The State, or any one
else. "He dared not openly fight me
on the only charge aga.inst me, for his
lynching record is too well known. He
was too shrewd to weaken himself at
home, for his success proves that a
majority of the white voters of this
State agree with him in favoring lynch.
ing as a punishment for one crime, so,
with characteristic shrewdness, he
made his 'negro in the sand' and other
violent speeches in the Senate, even as
serting that he favored lynching for
rape, and then in conversation with Re
publican Senators would say he wanted
me confirmed, that I was 'his sort of a
man,' that I was a lyncher like him and
he would vote for me. That cooked my
goose. The Republican Senators did
not want to expose themselves to
taunts from him of having voted for a
man he told them was a lyncher."
Mr. Koester will in the future devote
his time to his duties as manager of the
Record Publishing Co. He does not ask
nor expect reappointment from the

Mr. Thomas A. Hallman, of Winston,
*N. C., and Miss Josie S. White, the
efficient assistant teacher of the West
End schcol, were married in the West
End Baptist church Thursday evening.
June 26th. 1902, in the presence of a
large crowd of relatives and friends.
The cei emony was performed by Rev.
G. A. Wright, assisted by Rev. N. N.
Burton. The church was most beauti
fully decorated with potted plants and
ivy. The pyramid of palms forming the
center back ground, was of itself a most
beautiful and artistic piece of work.
Promptly at half past eight o'clock
the bridal party entered the church,
marching to the strains of Mendels
sohn's Wedding March, played by Miss
Blease in a most charming manner.
First came the little flower girls, Azile
White and Gladys Hicks, nieces of the
bride, dressed in white, bearing baskets
of white roses, leading the way to the
altar as gracefully as white doves. Then
followed the ushers, Messrs. W. L.
Devore and 0. R. Casey, M. A. Outz
and George Addy, and these by Mr. B.
B. Hallman and Miss Hattie Johnson,
Mr. Lewis Jones and Miss Lucy Jones,
Mr. John Morgan and Miss Mattie
Hallman. Then came the bride who
was most beautifully gowned in white
organdie, with trimmings of chiffon
and satin ribbons, and carrying a bou
quet of bride's roses. She was leaning
on the arm or her maid of honor, Miss
Della Foster. They were met in front
of the altar by the groom, supported
by Mr. John T. Hutchison. The bride
and groom met under a lovely four leaf
clover made of field daisies, and while
standing under this emblem of good
luck the holy bonds were tied.
The bridesmaids were dressed in white
and carried bouquets of pink roses. The
ceremory was very pretty and impres
sive. The whole scene was a most
After the ceremony the bridal party
and a few special friends were delight
fully entertained by the bride's aunts,
the Misses White, in their home.
The bride and groom left last Friday
for their future home in Winston, N. C.
