Why It is Important to Elect Good,
Men as Lawmakers.
Twenty five years ago when
the hue and cry was raised in
This State that "ring rule" was
in the ascendency, one of the
little side yelps was that Charleston
county had too much power
in the Legislature, and was ruling
the Commonwealth. That
Charleston county had more
power than other counties was
true, but the explanation in the
main part of it was plain. Beginning
with 1878 or 1880, when
the Democrats regained control
in Charleston, the county sent
to the Legislature such men as
the late Charles H. Simon ton,
Edward McCrady, Rudolph
Seiglintf, George Land) Buist,
Augustine Simons, John F.
Kieken and Simeon Hvde, and
kept them year al ter year and
term after term. There were
few weak men in the Charleston
delegation in those days and
any of the men named would
have been prominent and influential
in the Congress of the
I'oifo/I Sit. fit till 111 Sit !1K
tin.*v were in the legislature!.
()f course they exerted immense
power. Trained brains can't be
kept down anywhere. Other
counties sent able men, but it
was seldom that one of their
represent at iqt s remained in office;
more I ban t wo or four years.
After ls'.io Charleston ceased to
send powerful delegations,
though a t ew good men were
b 'altered in them, consequently
t he count v's influence decreased.
Spartanburg county, which has
twice the Democratic vote that
Charleston has, commands
1 - Iw. I ...r
J llilK' lUOle IIUUH'IIW' III mi ur^islature
that docs the average
county for the reason that no
Spartanburg man serves more
than two tonus, and tho really
bijx men of the county, barring
raro exceptions, refuse to j^o into
A strong delegation in tho
1 -otiislat u re is of ureal value to a
county, and a week delegation
is a handicap to it This applies
not only to politieial affairs, but
a I s? i to business. Were the
State about to establish a new
college or other institution, the
county without strong men in
the Legislature would have little
chance to secure it. Some of
these days, five years or twentyfive
years hence, South Carolina
rn.'iv ndnnt a nolicv State; it is
the starting and creating county
with influential legislators who
will have the better chance to obtain
a part of the assistance first.
The Legislature is the most,
important body in the State.
We laugh at it and make jokes
at its expense, but it is the real
government of the State, it is
the starting and creating {mint
in the State, county and city
government, and nowhere else
can a man do so much for bis
jM'Ople as there. No man is re
Hir> a wormy ciiizcn u iuimhw
selfishness prevents him from
running for the Legislature,
and the truth is that the man
who is too I>ito go into ik?!itic*s
is actually too small.
What tin* people ought to
learn is th;?t when men of character
and hrainft offer for the
Legislature, t.hev confer a favor
(lfh>11 the people and the voters
ought to encourage such men to
enter the primaries. Such men
do not like to run for office,
cause they resent being placed
in th?' |M?siliun of beggars when
they know it to l>c. a false posi
lion. At tin- same time, tin*
best men arc those who will serve
their county ;tn<l their State,
,however they are made to appear
t)mt thev ar?* seeking pre
ferment though they know that
they are dointf nothing of the
kind.? Laureus Advertiscr.

Fanrilv Reunion.
On Tuesday, the 28th instant
the children of Mr. and Mrs.
I. II. Simmon gathered at his
hospitable ho i u in tho Ambler
section of 1,0 county, to do
homage to their .parents. It
was an i al day, a pleasant
crowd a' 1 an enjoyable time.
Asi(lt> fl'i .11 f.hn fnni. !
ily t her were present Mrs. E. J.
Youn, jlocxl, Mi*s. Dorsey
Youn blood, J. E. Medlin and
dau<>,itei\ Miss Sunie, and son,
Robert, and Miss Lizzie
Si'unions the only sister of
I H. Simmons. One of
Mi. Simmons, children, Mrs.
Mary Finley. of Greenville
county, was unable to be present.
The morning was spent in
pleasant conversation and singing.
Praver was offered by Bro. J.
E. Medlin, the guests were
marshalled under the spreading
oaks where a long table was
set with all the substantial as
well as the delicacies of the season
and each and every one did
luiiijuoui/i; iu tin; iu|;ani.
Those of the children presont
were: J. D., Mrs. Texie Finley,
S. L., J. L., and Mrs. Martha
Ho'der, together with their families.
After dinner, Mr. J. K. Med]
i 11 made a good talk on the;
beauty and harmony of dwelling
together in peace and contentment
and iii the fear of the
Lord, and eulogized the idea of
the family reunion, drawing a
comparison from the temi>oral
gathering to thai of the heavenly
hosts who will assemble together
and dwell in peace and
harmonv and that loye that
passeth all understanding.
After singing "1 low Finn a
Foundation," the children and
invited guests ;dl left for their
homes, glad of the day thus
well spent and wishing for Mr.
and Mrs Simmons man v ret urns
of the happv occasion.

Dear Sent,inel .Journal: As I
haven't seen anything from tJiis
section lor some time, 1 will
try to ^ivo your valuable paper
and many readers a few lines,
telling what news I know of.
W e had nearly a solid week
of wet weatlier last week, hut
we are having a fine, week for
work now, and you can bet the
farmers are rolling up their
sleeves, laying haek their eai'S
and walkimr into it- from soon
until late.
Cotton is very small and sorry
this vear. irenerallv. so far as I
know. People want blossoms
by the 1th of July, but, if it
comes out a heap, it will do well
to blossom bv the 4th of August.
Some few are not done
thinning yet.
Corn is just medium irood.
Health of this section is ^ood
to what it has been.
Hen Tillman Winchester has
been very sick but is much better
now, under the treatment of
Dr. J. A. Cannon.
We are jrlad to state that Mrs.
\V. A. Davis is much bettter at
this writing. She is under the
care of Drs. J. A. C;mnon and
J. L. Bolt.
