Mr Kvunn stood calmly to one side,
the crowd effecting a separation be?

a moment or so after the sheriff arose.
Officers were on band and it was prac?
tically Impossible fi r Mr. Evans and
Sheriff Sample to get together. This
made It posslh'e for the little side
fight that caused such a stir.
If heat be a feature, the meetign to?
day was a corker. In the hottest lit?

Mr. glmog Coatee, who had some

who thrust him aside. Mr. Sample,
however, was separated from Mr.
Evans by many others. In fact, Mr,
Sample's advance was the signal for
the onrush of a great crowd. Depu?
ties were soon on hand, but nothing
was done. Attention was rivited up?
on Messrs. Evans and Sample; moan
while the near-annihlllatlon of Mr.
C'oates took place.
There werg some pistols on the

He laid down the general proposi?
tion that the principles espoused by
Bleaae were diametrically opposed
to those he advocated, Mention of the

continued for a time. There was no
concerted effort to howl down the

Judge Jones to speak connectedly,

has been secured and without doubt
the factory will be established, pro?

throughout the country. The total

The factory will furnish all seed

to those who may enter Into the con?

manager of the factory will assist the
farmer in every way, both in plant?

ever his advice is requested. The
main produce needed will be toma?

All other produce will be taken care
of without contract and at prevalent

mer is now requested to signify to
the Secretary of the Chamber of
Commerce or to Mr. R. B. Heiser,
director of this department, how
many acres of each product he will
plant. The banks will also be fur?
nished with cards to be filled out 1
the farmers for the same purpose.
Those farmers who may think of
taking up this proposition should re?
member that under the contract that
they will be expected to sign later,
that the factory agrees to take every
bushel of produce grown upon the
acreage agreed upon and at the prices
named. The farmer at the same time
agrees to sell to the factory at the
prices, agreed Upon, every bushel of
produce that he may grow thereon.
It Should also be borne in mind that
while the prices named may seem low
for the early produce that it is de?

/stopped there and the Tim
/ie Guards were marched
abo./d while the train was at that
busy little town. The next stop was
Sumter where the local men joined
the other companies on the train
and the Orangeburg company also
got aboard here, being moved by
rail from Orangeburg to this place
to join the regiment here. The oth?
er companies from Edgefield, Co?
lumbia and Camden joined the regi?
ment at Columbia, where the regi
ment was divided into two parts and
moved over th^ Columbia, New
berry and I-aurens road as far as
Clinton. Here the trains were taken
in charge by the Seaboard which car?
ried the troops on to Atlanta. From
Atlanta the men of the second regi?
ment will be taken in charge by the
Southern, which runs them on into
Anniston to the encampment ground*.
The train when it left Hartsville
was under the command of Liuef.
Col. C. B. Yeadon, but Col. C. P.
Lipscomb assumed command at Co?
lumbia when the regiment assembled
'at that place. All arrangements for
transportation had been practically
completed previously and the sched?
ule for the special train on which
the Sumter company l>?ft was carried
out as arranged.
1 Each company is required to have
at least ^s men on the encampment.
The Sumter Light Infantry will havt
4 2 men from Sumter. The officers of
the company are: Captain Geo. C.
Warren; 1st. Lieut. P. M. Brown;
Second Lieut. Wayne Mellette; 1st.
Sergeant Ed Bradford. Former 1st
Sergeant B. O. Cantey stood the of?
ficer's examination last week and, af?
ter a successful examination, was ap?
pointed battalion quartermaster and
commissary. He will be missed from
the company of which he has been
first s-rgeant lor several years.
I Besides the company officers and
the members of the company who
have always taken an enthusiastic
part in the encampments and dis
'played much interest in the work on
'the national guard, Sumter has con?
tributed a number of the regimental
staff and line officers, furnishing sev
leral aide and successful oiiicers in
this regard. The line officers from
Sumter are Lieutenant Colonel C. B.
j Yeadon ami Major .1. YY. Bradford of
the third battalion; on the Staff are
Capt. Geo. W. Hutchcson, regimental
Quartermaster in charge of trans?
portation; H. P. Mii^, regimental
!Sergeant major; K. M. Hall, regiment?
al quartermaster sergeant.
The nu n expect to have a line time
on the encampment. Reports of the
men from other regiments who have
returned have reached them that
there will not be so much march?
ing, as the area for the manoeuvers
is not so extended as at Chicka?
