THE SUMTER SPIfUT.
A man who has once been a citizen
of the Game Cock Cit} and has be?
come imbued with tbe Sumter spirit
never loses Lis love for Sumterand
-ins pride in her progress and growth.
It is a great spirit and is the bed rock
of our s access.
The finest illustration of the spirit,
that has come under our notice recent?
ly is furnished by the following let?
ter from a citizen of Sumter who is
now a resident of far away California.
It shews that his heart is still in Sum?
ter and that he has more confidence in
her future than some of those who
h&ve their domicile here.
The letter which is addressed to Sec?
retary E. I. Reardon should be an in?
spiration to the finance committee and j
a spur to the liberality of those who
have not yet. Jojosend their purse j
strings. No resident of Sumter should
I? less liberal and public sprited than
James R. Ligon, who feels the call to
be up and doing for Sumter clear
across th? continent. The letter is as
fellows:
Redlands, CaL Sept. 22d, 1904.
I note, through our home papers,
that you are making a fine effort to
get up the proposed carnival, and I
wish ror you and through jon, our
thriving little city every success.
It is a matter of keen regret to me ?
that I am unable, to be present and ac?
tive in such a grand enterprise. I,
none the less, regret that I am finan?
cially unable to be of mach assistance,
but, if the committee wi il be so good
as to consider small donations, I
would be glad for you to put me down
for ten ($10.C0) dollars.
Again wishing you every success, I
sincerly yours,
Jas. R. Ligon.
THE RRST BATTLE FLAS.
sting Reminiscences cf an Historic
incident fey Coi. J. D. Blandina.
Since Col Blanding's return home
he hasfound among his papers some
penciled reminiscenses which we have
requested of him for publication. He
says his memory for recent events,'
say, ia thc last forty yeats, is so bad
tfc&s he is loth to publish anything
.of occurrences within that time.
Those antecedent to secession and
^even nullification he readily recalls,
but he givres us this Sag sketch :
Tbe first and only public delivery
"T 'o? toe battlenags of the Confederacy
was made by Gen. Beauregard at Cen
. terrille, Va, soon after First Man
assas, and was most impressive. It
aroused a decided war spirit in the
bay St and will be readily retailed by
the few survivors left. One incident ?
particularly created wild enthusiasm
and will bear relating.
His Division (soon after corps) was
'Hrawn ap en masse, the Colonels of
'Sxgjmeats cn order, dismounted,
1 marched to the. front and stood in line
i 20 paces before Gen. Beauregard and
his staff. As the number and State of I
* each regiment was called by his A. A. J
General, its Cot stepped to within
ave paces of the General, who, taking
"froni one of his aides holding them,
MD?&of the battle flags in hand, briefly
-addressed a few martial words to him,
-and waving? delivered it to the Col?
ane:, who of course was expected to
respond, briefly, of course.
The ground color of the flags was
different, though the Southern cross
cf stars and bars was the same,on
all. One of them with a pale ground
was delivered to a ColoneL I think
of a Georgia regiment. Returning
Sits thanks with the usual pledge that \
ii should be carried to the front,
ncr erer have one stain of dishonor
oe iu ?c., &C., he added, "I have
butene objection to.it, its color is
indicative of fear, and looks too much
like a flag of truce." To which Gen.
Beauregard in bis nervous manner and
.military tone quickly answered, **I>ve
*it red, sir! ?ye it in blood sir!"
f-*To which the reply came. ** It shall
'? ? "fee sir. It shall be, in the blood of the
-enemy. General. And as quickly
esme the response, "In your own,
sir, if necessary" "Aye! Aye!! Gen
<eral5"
This raised a shout, or rather a yell:
! "which from its f requency soon became
I well known to both sides as the " Re?
bel yell'?

Mr. Editor: To giv<? you an idea
how Sumter is progrt ssiog, I wish to
record certain observations of the past

ously, dav and night, for the past two
weeks. Besides, he is forced to send

Mr. Skinner told me this niorrir~
that he had cot had a wink of sietp in
the past 48 hours.

_
Frcm the Daily Item, Sept. 28.
Yesterday atl o'clock, J. H. Ford?
ham, of Orangeburg, the district chair
i man, called to order the Seventh
District Republican convention.
The meeting, which was held in
! the court house, was largely attended
by delegates from Bichland, Lee,
Ornageburg, Lexington and Sumter
counties, and enthusiasm ran v*?ry
high.
The meeting was temporarily or?
ganized by the election of R. H.
Richardson, of Wedgefield, Chairman
and Jacob Moore, of Orangeburg, sec?
retary.* On a motion, which was
unanimously carried, this organiza?
tion was made permanent.
J. H. Fordham moved that the con?
vention. proceed immediately to the
nomination of a candi cate for the
Seventh Congressional District. The
motion was carried.
H. B. Thomas, of Orangeburg,
placed in nomination A. D. Dantzler,
of the same county. R. H. Richard?
son put before the convention, Rev.
C. C. Jacobs, of Sumter. After the
appointment of tellers a vote was
taken, which resulted in the nomina?
tion of Jacobs by a vote of 16 to 13.
The vote was afterwards made un?
animous. A resolution was offered
and adopted to prosecute the fight
against Congressman Lever with all
the zeal and energy of which the Re?
publican party in this district is cap- ~
able.
Several speeches pertaining to the
conduct of the campaign, and the
prospects of Republican success were
greeted with outbursts of enthusi?
asm, accompanied ? by vociferous
cheering.
On account of a vacancy in the dis?
trict chairmanship, caused by the re?
signation of J. H. Fordham, H. B.
Thomas, of Orangeburg, was elected
to that position.
The following district committee?
men were elected :
L. C. Scott for Richland, R. H.
Richardson for Sumter, A. T.Butler
for Lee, A. D. Webster for Orange?
burg, and A. W. Johnson for Lexing?
ton.
Ber. C. C. Jacobs made a speech of
acceptance, in which he expressed his
thanks for the confidence that the con?
vention had placed in him, and
pledged himself to work hard and
earnestly to carry out the will of the
convention-the unseating of Con- ?
gressman Lever.
The convention adjourned at 5
o'clock p. m.

Aiburtus Seymour Hurt.
Monday night a most dastardly act
was commited in Sr.mmerton by some
unknown person, upon Mr. Seymonr
the engineer of the Wilson and Sum?
merton Railroad. Mr. Seymour was
sitting on the piazzn of the Branson
House witb some ladies and children
when without any warning he was
struck twice with brick bats, one hit?
ting him on the head, and the other
over the eye. His injuries were so se?
rious that a physician was called to
him, and he advised the patient not
to undertake to carry out his train
yesterday morning. There is no clue
to the perpetrator of the deed, and the
people of Summerton are shocked
that such cowardice should be perper
tated in their town. The occurance.
was reported to Capt. Thomas Wil?
son, and at his request Capt. Joe
James manned the engine, took charge
of the throttle and ran the train to
Wilsons, where an engineer met it.

The World's Fair is now in progress at St. Louis. It opened the first of May and close?
the first of December. How many paid admissions will there be during the entire period V
Every customer of The Royal Tailors-every man. woman and child placing an order with
us through anv of our authorized dealers, at any time from now until Nov. 15 next-is enti?
tled to make one guess for every dollar (or fraction part of a dollar) he or she pays for Royar
tailoring. The man who pays 815 for a suit may make 15 guesses? the woman who pays $10
for a skirt may make 10 guesses; the boy who pays 87.50 for a suit may make S guesses, and
soon. And every time you order you have the right to make additional guesses. With an
opportunity to secure one of our valuable prizes, you should look ahead and see to it that
the entire family is provided with wearing apparel, not only for fall and winter, but for next
spring as well'.. ? , . ,
Our Automobiles have all been bought and the person who guesses nearest to the total
number of paid admissions to tho World's Fair will receive that grand machine-the 84.000
Peerless Touring Car; the person who makes the second nearest guess will receive the su?
perb 83,000 Touring Gar. and so on until the 10 automobiles listed above have been distribut?
ed. In addition to these 10 automobile prizes, we also offer eight cash prizes of 8100 each, for
the nearest guesses made each month, from Feb. 15 to Nov. 15.1904. except that at the close,
the time from Oct. 1 to Nov. 15 will be considered as the final "month. In explanation of
these cash prizes for guesses during a'gi ven month, please bear in mind that every guess
has reference to the total number of paid admissions during the entire period of the \\ orld's
Fair, and that we are not asking you to guess what the attendance will be during any single
month or week or day. For instance, it is apparent that during the month of August some
one will make a closer guess on the total number of admissions than anybody else does (in
August), and while it is possible that this guess may not win an automobile prize, still the
person making it will receive our check for 8100.
. The official report of the Secretary of the World's Fair, showing the total number of
paid admissions, will be made immediately after the close of the fair and will determine
who are entitled to the prizes.
The total paid admissions to the World's Columbian Exposition, held in Chicago in 1S93,
was 21.4*0.141 ; the total paid admissions to the Pan-American Exposition, held in Buffalo in
1901, was 8.295.073. How many will there be at St. Louis V
This grand prize contest closes Nov. 15. and no estimates made after that date will be
considered. This statement is made with tlwe understanding that the World's Fair will ex?
tend over the period of time now contemplated. Should the fair officials make any change
whereby the time is to be either curtailed or extended we may decide to change our time
limit for estimates, and due announcement will be made of such change.
No person will be entitled to more than one automobile. Should two or more persons
make exactly the same guess and that guess be a "prize winner." the value of the prize will
be divided equally between them.
Guessing blanks are supplied by all Royal dealers throughout the United States, and cus?
tomers must make their guesses on one of these blanks and have it sent to us by the dealer
when he sends the order. Upon receipt of guesses we will issue certificates, which will be
duly forwarded to dealers, who will deliver them to customers.
Get your guesses in early.' Then1, is nothing to be gained by waiting. There is no prob?
lem about it-nothing to "figure out"-it is guess work, pure and simple, and the figures you
make today are just as likely to be be thc good ones as those you make tomorrow or next
week. And don't forget that notwithstanding the immense outlay contemplated, by this
grand offer, our prices for made-to-measure garments will continue to be always the lowest
for high grade individual tailoring servir?. We guarantee every customer entire satisfac
tion on each and every order-latter values always than can be had from any other house
in America. That's strong talk, and that is just what we mean.

FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR THE
FESTIVAL.
City Coancil Appropriates a Handsome
Sum io Help the Good Work Along.
City Council held a regular meet?
ing at 8 o'clock Wednesday night .with
Mayor Geo. W. Dick, and Aldermen
Barnett, Finn, Haynsworth, Hood,
Howland and Stubbs present.
Mr. Sam F. Osteen came to request
the privilege of rolling a house
through Kendrick street a distance of
75 yards and the request was referred
ta the committee of public works with
power to act.
H. C. Haynsworth, Esq., appeared
on behalf of Mr. Perry Moses, Jr.,. to
ask that earth removed in grading,
sidewalks on North Main street be
dumped on a lot belonging to Mr.
Moses, which is the nearest low lot to
the excavations. Referred to the com?
mittee of public works with power to
act. i
Dr. J. A. Mood and Messrs. Marion
Moise, fl. F. Wilson, D. J. Chandler
and fl. G. Osteen of the Fall Festival
committee asked for an appropriation
of $500, towards the expenses of the
Festival. They all expressed the
opinion that the appropriation would ;
b? a wise investment for advertising :
the city and attracting many visitors
to the city-and which, in time, i
would be profitable. The matter Was j
discussed at length and on motion of
Messrs. Finn and Bow land Council j
decided to appropriate Four Hundred j
Dollars ont of licenses collected from j
shows and other sources of income in- '
aident to the Festival, and from the
cireuse licenses on October 26th.
Mr. W. D. Shaw, on behalf of the
letter carriers, asked that the streets
now known as Red and; White No. 1,
and No. 2, be changed to avoid con?
fusion in delivering mail and mer?
chandise. Referred to the committee
of public works with power to act.
A petition of J. L. McCallum and
T. B. Kennedy for opening a street
from Broad street northward was re?
ferred to thc committee with author?
ity to open the street with a suitable
?ame upon execution and delivery of
titles to the laud to be used as such
street.
A letter was read fro.ii the Sumter
Light and Power Co., asking Council
to remit a charge against them for
Lights not barning on April 7th, caus?
ad by a shut down made necessary by
contact with falling telephone wires.
Referred to finance committee with
power to act.
Mayor Dick stabed that Mr. J. A.
Schwerin had erected a number of
small bill boards on sidewalks of
which some complaint had been made,
and Mr. Schwerin desired to know if
this is in violation of Council's orders!
to keep bill boards off the sidewalks,
his understanding of the orders being
that they applied to large boards that
might be dangerous. Council reaf?
firmed the former resolution as includ?
ing all bill boards of any size.
The police committee advised that
policemen and other employes of the
city be hereafter required to keep
their bicycles in repair at their own
expense. They reported, also, the
number of electric lights not burning
from Sept. 15th to 21st. The report
was adopted. Messrs. Hood 'and Finn
were opposed to requiring officers to
keep bicycles repaired when used in
city service. -,
The finance committee reported that
they had examined the Clerk and
Treasurer's books and found them
correct for September. They had dis?
posed of all bills referred to them, and
called attention to the increase of ex?
penses.
The committee of public works re?
ported progress in street work. They
stated that there is a deposit of sand
rock with 3 to 5 miles of the city j
which is said to make excellent roads j
and that the county athorities are
willing to bear half t he exoespenf ex?
perimenting with the rock and in pur?
chasing a crusher iu case it be found
in sufficient quantity aud good
enough quality to warrant the expen?
diture. The committee was authorized
to further investigate and experiment
with the rock.
The fire department committee re?
ported the repair of No. 3 Hose Co's,
stalls at a cost of $3, and that the
Steamer had been repaired and is now
in good condition, except for some
parts to be renewed.
Mr. Haynsworth reported that he,
with tiie committee of public works,
had conferred with Messrs. Neil
O'Donnell and Marion Moise in ref?
erence to their claim to a part of
Green street without reaching an agre?
ement. And that those gentlemen
have since enclosed with a fence what
has been thc sidewalk of that street.
He asked for instructions.
The committee was directed to assert
the city's claim to the land in ques
tiori and to take such steps as may be
necessary to establish the city's title
thereto.
Mr. Finne ailed attention to the fact
that there are many long trains of cars
j now stopping in Sumter, which neces?
sarily stop on street crossings, and
I which cannot be handled within the
i time allowed by the ordinance against
j blocking street crossings, and that 15 ?
minutes at least shoudl be allowed in ?
such cases. He asked for moderation I
in enforcing the ordinance, as he
thinks no engineers or conductors wil?
fully violate its provisions,
i Council then adjourned.
j Impressions Made Upon a Visitor.
? - "ii
It's bin nigh on to four yers since I
waa in Sumter, Mr. editor, but me !
and Buck Edge taken a trip np to
your town last week, and I was so j
mightly pleased, I jest thought I j
; would write you ? letter about it. ?
j Sumter has surely growed a heap sence
! I seen it. The people was all a mov- !
j ing about in a mighty big burry, and !
all ov em seemed to hava sumthing to I
j do. This was a good sign. I never
seen a town in my life that didn't go
to rack ef most of the men set aronn
whittlin sticks. Sumter is sure got a
move on her. Them big show win?
dows taken Buck's eye, and I had i
farely to pull him along to git him
away furn em. We didn't drink nothin
but soda water thc day we was up, and
wc was told that a man cou ld nt git a
drop onless he went to see Zeke
Windana. I think Buck sneked in
and got jes a bite towards evenin. He
was in a powerful good ynmor on the
i way home. We staid over nightman
; foun good lodgins, au I'm glad I made
the visit.
Ther was some things that sorter set
me a tninkin, an I aint never got em
right strait in my mine yet. ~A feller
come along drivin a young mule, au
run into a lot o buggies an wagon all
spread out in the street in front of
somebody's stable, and I thought to
my self seen, a thing ort not to be al?
lowed. To block up a street with
wagins an things, and make it so a
man cant scarcely?pass, ort to be agin
the law in any fust class town. I won?
der why the town counsel dont make
a mle perhibitiu any sech thing. I
dont believe it would be allowed down
here in kingstree Streets is public
property, an the law ort to require a
stable keeper to shet up the buggies
an wagins in his yard, and not leve
em spread out all over the streets.
About the porest thing sen in Sumter
was the lectric lights. Buck sed them
big lamps on the streets was ekal to
2000 candle apiece. But Said I to
myself, I says, that's a lie, ef I know
one when I hear it or see it. The lit?
tle lights in some of the stores wasnt
much botter. Buck and me was look
in at a pair of shoes in one of the
shops, an all the lights was a burnin,
and, dog my cats, ef the clurk didut
have to bring in a lamp so we could
tell whether the shoes was sowed or
pegged. And Buck sed some of the
stores paid $8 and ?10 a month for them
little lamps. Seems to me I'd be a
raisin a row ef I was bein bamboozled
in sech a way, an payin me money fer
it too.
One funny thing happened. Buck
wanted a patch put on to his shoe, an
a policeman sed a shoemaker kep right
down ther on Liberty street, back o
Solomon's old stand. So we seen a
sign, and a man told us that was
Shoemakers, an in wc went. A bushy
headed feller come ont to meet us.
and ast ef we wanted to buy a organ
or a fiddle. No, says Buck, I want to
git a patch put on this here shoe.
Weil, says he, I dont work on shoes ; I
sell orgins. Come to find not, the
man was named Shoemaker, and that
policeman had jest guyed me an Buck
into goin to a music store to get a
shoe patched.
Ef you have the Karnival, you may
count on me an Buck coming up. I
want to see your old town at its best.
I hope by that time you'll have the
wagins moved off the streets and the
lights will be so a man kin tell wheth?
er a shoe is sowed or pegged. Give
my love to Tom Sumter and Bill
Jones and Bill Seal. They are all kin
to me, and I aint shamed to acknowl--;
edge neither. Aleck Game well.

The Leap Year Dance.
-From the Daily Item, Sept. 30.
The young ladies of Sumter gave a
very enjoyable dance last evening in
honor of their young gentlemen
friends.
Scbumaker's Orchestra had been en?
gaged to furnish the music : but on
account of Prof. Scbumaker's inabili?
ty to return to the city, the remain?
ing members of the orchestra failed
to keep the engagement. This was
certainly a nice predicament to leave
the young ladies in, but they hustled
around" and secured Westberry's or?
chestra, which rendered very satisfying
music from ll until 2.30 o'clock.
