The sentiment is being ver;
generally expressed that it woul<
be well to leave both McLauri
and Tillman at home.
it is announced that Mr. Fes
therston, who ran for governor i
'98, will be a candidate for th
senate. Gov. McSweeney wi
also be in the race.
The general verdict seems t
be that the public will regret tb
resignations of Senators McLai
rin and Tillman more than eith
of them before it is over.
Governor McSweeney now h:
a great opportunity if he will bi
rise to -t, viz., the appointmei
of disinterested parties to su
ceed McLaurin and Tillman.
The monument to the Soul
Carolina dead at Chickamaun
was unveiled Monday. Gen. C.
Walker and Governor McSween
both made addresses on that c
With so many officers elect
in the primaries, and with the

it is a great misfortune for t
State to have an extra prima
this year.
If a debate between McLaul
and Tillman should suggest t
educational influences that ma
seem to think such a debate v
have, why could it not be h<
next year, as well as this? C
tainly it will not be educatio
enough to pay for the cost of
extra primary.
Col. Wilie Jones, the chairn
of the State Democratic Execut
Committee, when he heard of i
resignation of McLaurin m
Tillman, stated that the prim

When one sees what a fine ci

of Mr. Doty, viz., that he is
After the wheat field, Mr.
Turner's garden was fully viewed.
About one-third of an acre of
onions in a continuous combat to
crowd each other out of the drill
is first seen. Mr. Turner said
that he had planted these four
inches apart in the drill so that
they would meet in the row and
this they are doing yet, though
off of this small patch he has al
ready sold about $25 worth, and
even with the decreased price he
should be able to sell more than
he has already sold. Ye cotton
tots, just think of it; one-third of
an acre yielding at the rate of
$150 per acre and that in one-haf
of a year.
A patch of cabbage of about
the same size is next taken in,
and judging from their fine ap
pearance it does not appear that I
they have lacked fertilization,
work, or water. From this fine
lot of cabbage Mr. Turner has
been cutting about 200 pounds
0 every day for the past eight or
e ten days and were it not for the
old sta!ks one would not imagine
,r that they had been interfered
with in the slightest.
So far Winnsboro has been Mr.
s Turner's only market for the
it products from his garden, and
t fortunate indeed is it that the
-people thus have an opportunity
of getting their vegetables so
fresh. Later vegetables will be
I supplied in season.
a After a stroll over an oat field
[. of which Mr. Turner is very fond,
y the bee yard (the apiary) of Mr.
c- Gantt was next visited. The
writer felt very much at home in
this place though he had never
d visited it before. At home he is
se always among the bees, for from
s, the time he was six years old he
e has spent many a day from early
ry morn till dewey eve in their midst,
and he could count the stings he
- has received from them by the
he thousands. In fact he had nol
been long in this yard till on(
y tried on the back of his head t(
11 see whether he was still thor
r- oughly inQculated with a sufficieni
ra quantity of formic acid as to pre
an vent the injected poison fron
taking effect. - And he stood the
test. But with all the stings the:
ian have given him he still feels i
ive great debt of gratitude to thes<
bhe busy little bees, for to theL botl
Ind he and three of his brothers an<
ry sisters are indebted very largel;
rs for the funds for their colleg
t. education and from them stil
funs f
it .Mr. Gantt o
I- most of which are appar
ry ently in good condition. Thes<
are nicely located in a little grov<
that is well suited for the pur
his pose. A look into several of th<
Lat hives showed that this had beei
est a fine honey season. In additioi
at- to the very fine honey he is get
Ihe ting in his one-pound sections
iis Mr. Gantt is getting up a displa;
re- for the Charleston exposition
s. Every old glass jar and all kind
his of glass ware including the ol<
of Palmetto bottle are being brough
ib- into service for getting up thi
ng collection. The writer has n<
ws hesitancy in saying that in thi
effort he is succeeding admirably
for it has never been his privi
se lege to see any finer specimens c
be hoiaey. Mr. Gantt finds read;
ect sale for his honey right here il
Ley the home market.. The hone;
ne this year has been gathered ver;
ich largely from the blackberry an<
ile is unusually well flavored.
nd It is encouraging to see thes
ith small industries taken up by th
on people of this section. In true:
dy farming and in bees there is goo<
for money for enterprising citizen
OW who will takee the time to buil<
n up a trade. But the writer want
all to see another industry added ti

To the Democratic voters of the
Fellow Citizens; Ai extraor

State, and -as I am. mainly re
sponsible for this., I .feel that a

an explaiation of my actions and
Eleven years ago by a very
large rote you elected me go.v
ernor of tfie Stati,. and two years
afterwards I was reelected by an
overwhelming majority. . Ii '94 I
was sent as your representative
in I the congress of the United
States as one of the. senators
from South Carolina. After six
years' service in that body I was
last year chosen without op Ps
tion to be' fy own successor. I
was sworn-in on 'March 4th, last
for the six years term'ending in
1907. The ink has hardly be
come dry upon my oath of office
and yet I' have tendered my resig
nation to take effect September
15th next. My colleague has
also tendered his resignation to
take effect the same date, and
thus there will be two vacancies
to be filled by appointment of the
governor until the legislature can
elect our- successors in January
next. I - desire to announce my
candidacy to succeed myself and
shall ask you to vindicate m
action by your votes in' the pri.
mary, which will be ordered by
the State Democratic committee.
This is an off year in politics an.
but for the conditions which hat
come-about my action in precipi
tating a politiel campaign, an<
primary election would be inex
cusable. A brief review of recen
political events will be necessar;
to give that explanation. My col

these gentlemen who proposed t

unlimited moriey furnished by hi
Republican allies, -or McKinle
a Democratic folloyrers in Sout
Carolina and his purpose was t
go up and down the. State unoi
posed. and unanswered to organiz
his new.political machine. Thi
was the situation up to the Gaf
ney meeting and I was confronte,
.with the question of. what wa
Smy duty under the circumstances
Recollect that I am a member c
the national Democratic commit
tee,.as your representative; I wa
on the committee on platform 1i
both of the last national conven
tions and.helped frame the decla
rations of principle and policy
upon which we went to battle,
and I was chairman of the com
mittee on platform in your last
State convention.. Remember too
that both at Charlotte and At
Greenville, directly andindirectly,
[ had been. assailed by Mr. Mc
Laurin and you will. understand
why I was anxious to meet my
colleague at Gaffney, - and whl -
invited- by a- large number of citi
zens of Cherokee coun I wil
lingly accepted. The result of
that meeting is now well -known.
Mr. McLaurin was unexpectedly
brought face. to . face with the
question of resignation and ap
peal to the people whose confi
dence he had abused and whose
trust he had betrayed. He tried
to dodge the thrust, by charging
that I was attempting to dictate
and boss the people and inter
fere in a race . with which I had
no concern and was safely es
conced in my. seat for six years
and lhad nothing to lose, but
could well anord to. lay down a
code of moral ethics, for anothcr
which I was .unwilling to follow
myself. I saw the opportunity
to preeipitate a battle at once
rather than wait fifteen months
and I offered.to resign if.he would,
and the result you know. I acted
from impulse it is true, but I
have always acted upon impulse
and as a public man I can affirm
with the sacredness of an oath
that all of my impulses -have been
to serve the best int'erests of the
people who have h6ored me. I
had every opportunity.:to weigh
the consequences of my action
and to et out of it without dig
credit,tut I felt then and still
feel that my duty was to force
the fighting and rid- the party of
all traitors. The situation as I
understand it, is this. The peo
ple who are interested in having
two senators at Washington to d
. their will and stand by theii
t principles will have in oppor
r tunity of being honestly and hon
.oably represented. This ha,
a not been the case during the las
two yease, and as Mr. McLauriJ
remains in the senate it could no
L be the case.
