THE OLD AND THE NEW.
Jmlice Mrfluwan Again a Private
Citizen ? Colonel CuKnt1 H. Harj
Taken Hi* Place on the Supreme
Bench.
Kver since the earliest days In the history
ol the Stale, Abbeville cuun'y has always
taken a conspicuous part lu everything thai
pertained to the welfare and glory of the
country.
She ha* been distinguished for the ability
and Integrity of her lawyers; her representatives
on the Bench have been renowned
for iheir learning and uprightness
of character; her statesmen have stood
in the forefront, with the giants of the nation;
her warriors have been as brave as ttie
bravest, and In civil life her citizens have upheld
the fame ol her leaders.
Tnere never has been a lime when Abbeville's
citizens did uot take a conspicuous
pari in all the ailalrs of the Stale, ana today
iney are preserving iuc uiaujrit; icuiiu.
None bave been more distinguished, or been
tried in wore fields of usefulness than Samuel
McGowan, and none have more consistently,
or lor a longer lime, shed lustre on Ibe
county of bis adoption.
Judge McUowau, wbo has so long been recognized
un one of tbe ablest Jurists lu tbe
Stale, last Saturday laid aside tils official
robes, and retired to private life.
He will now in bis old age. after tbe excitement
and labors Incident to a long and
busy life, euter Into tbat peaceful rest to
which his assiduous labors and his wonderful
accomplishments so justly entitle him.
In full health, and In manly courage, be enters,
so to speak, the Indian summer of life,
with a strong heart and unbroken spirit.
Having tasted all the sweets of lUe, and having
hid the fullest confidence of his fellow
countrymen, during a long and eventful
career be retires from active service with
the love and good will of all.
Judge McGowan Is a man with a history,
whose unfailing success, In whatever position
clrcumstauces or inclination may have put
him, should be an incentive aud an inspiration
to tbe young men of today. His success
was not attained except by hard work, and
by a strict observance of the rules which
characterize the highest Integrity.
Judge McUowau came to the Abbeville Bar
lu tbe "forties," aud his success and his history
Is known of all men.
By biB uniformly kind disposition and a
willingness, from his abundant fortune, to
relieve tbe distress of those who were embnr- ,
rassed, be has done much good to his fellow- (
man, and his neighbors love and honor him
lor It. I
He has never failed at anything:. When he
was at tbe Bar, he was considered one of the
be?t of lawyers, and bis practice was accordingly
lar^eand|remunerative.
As a legislator be gave abundant satisfaction
to his constituency for twelve years pre- .
cetllng the war.
On the breaking out of the war, to which be j
was opposed, he enlisted In the battles ot (
tils couutry, and his worth then, as in peace, ,
was recognized. He was elected Colonel of (
oue of tbe Regiments, aud tor a long time before
the cioee of the war was one of Lee's (
most trusted Brigadier Generals. On the soil .
of Virginia, whlcb is rich with southern blood,
Id many a bard fought battle he and bis
gallant brigade bravely faced all the dangers
of war.
When grlru vlsaged war had smoothed Its
wrinkled front, he came home, crippled In
estate, but with a heart which has never
Known discouragement, he opened bis law
office, aud was rewarded with a lucrative
practice, and he soon regained bis lost estate.
Atone iltue he was elected to Congress, but
because of disabilities incurred by bis honorable
and distinguished participation In tbe
rebellion, he was not allowed to lake the seat
to which his country men had elected him.
For several terms after the war he was elected
to the lower house of the Legislature.
About fifteen years ago tbe Legisture, in
recognition of his ability aud legal
attainments, elected him Associate Justice
on tbe Supreme Bench, which position
he has held ever since. His decisions
will remain and be of record tor the Stale and
4 credit to old Abbeville county.
He Is now seventy-live years of age, and
winds up a career which, for success and
usefulness, is not surpassed by that of auy one
In this county.
He tias ample fortune, good health, aud an
undaunted spirit.
Having conferred honor on his countrymen,
lie now luys down his robes of office as
spotless as when he took luem up. He
has preserved the pride and integrity of his
country. By his learning In the law and
Ills unconquerable determination to do Ihe
right, he has made a record which is a rioh
heritage lor those who are to follow him, and
praise the name which he Iihb made historic
lu tbeanuals of Abbeville county.
And bow as to his successor in office? he j
who Is to wear the ermine which his distinguished
predecessor has Just laid down. I
Like Judge McGowan. Associate Justice
Eugene B. Qary is an example of what pluck, ,
sagacity and energy can accomplish. Like
Judge McGowan, he cau look back irom (he fi
blgii position which he now holds,aud review
the Incidents in a career ol unbroken success. ?
He may recount the steps from the beginning
till the way up to the exulted position upou (
which he now stands.
Though young in years he has bad greater
honors and higher trusts conferred upou blm ,
than has fallen to the lot of many.
As a lawyer he was successful. AsapollU- {
tslau we believe he never met defeat, and bis
record as a public servunt has been one of ,
steady advancement.
As presiding officer, whether in heated con- .
tests between contending parlies,or as President
of tbe Senate, his sagacity and quick ,
perception, have enabled him to win com- (
mendatlon even in the discbarge of mostdifHcult
duties.
As a Judge we doubt not that his readiness
to grasp the fuels and the law as presented to .
IiIiii on the Beuch, will enable blm to till the v
office ol Judge with satisfaction to all.
Judge Gary, like Judge McGowau, Isaciti- .
r.en of Abbeville county, having been born at '
Cokesbury about forty years ago. ,
With his native ability and (he example ol
a long line of distinguished predecessors be- .
fore blm, we doubt not that Judge Gary will,
like Judge McGowan, win the well done ot
tiis country men. (
NOT A "BOILER."

Editor Prost and Banner:
1 see in your last week's issue, the announcement
by "many voters" ol my name
[which discontinue) lor the House of Repre
sentatlves. While it is true mat I am sometime
sanguine lor the suceess of others?I am
t?y no means an aspirant for office, and were
I ever so qualified to represent the people at
this critical moment, I cannot respond 10 the
mil?-Justice to mysell and home forbids. I
am grateful to "many voters" and friends
who have beeu urging me to make the race,
lor the confidence manifested, but I most respectfully
decline. Not that I am anytheless
a reformer, for as one whose avocatlou Is solely
larmlng, none can better appreciate the
need of reform measures more than I do.
We need them at home on the "farm," we
need them both in Stale and National Legislation.
The stringency of the times demand
them?the prosperity of the country depend
upon them.
And to best bring about these results, we
must have men to represent us of pure mo Ives?of
honest Judgment and are identified
with our interest. Change the time lor
the meeting of Legislature to January, and
most all professions would be benefitted lu
selecting and sending their best representative
men. As It now Is many cannot or will
not make the sacrifice. Tuls is the time at
home for gathering, collecting and settling
business generally. However, there Is most
always plenty ol go^xi material In the field
from which to select.
But I disagree with "Tillmanlte" as to the
"boiling down" process, at leant, when there Is
no party opposition with which to contend.
It has the appearance of discontentment and
fighting among ourselves. He will remember
that this plan was pursued two years ago
and It brought discord mid dlssaiisfaction Into
our ranks, much talk of knifing, combines
?nd ringlsm. And now when we have no
enemy or opponent lu the field, let us cease
rt /vktlltor a?.4 an tat thli n/>llu OnH U hu 11 At
for the best representative men. There will l
be less probability of bringing "reproach up- i
uq the movement" than to boll bown. There 1
are extremists In all parties, but we are
neighbors and friends?men of honest convictions,
Interested in good government, and
mast we cultivate dlssention ? Let us be citizen-like.
Let every one vote for the best Interest
of the country. Vote for measures and
uot men. M. B. (Jllnksoales.

ancJ NlHiiUererN of Abbeville.
Atlanta, Ga., July 26,1894.
Mr. W. C. McQowan, Abbeville, S. C.:
Dear SirI have your favor of the 21st. In
reply, I beg to state that there Is no truth In
the report that we ei pect to abandon the shops
at Abbeville, but, owing to the extremely dull
times, It has been necessary for us, like all
business enterprises, to reduce our lorces at
all points. There has been no increase of
forces anywhere on the line, but there has
been a constant decrease. We will only keep
such forces at any oi our shops as are absolutely
necessary to keep our ^equipment It)
running order. (
I am sure that all business meb will appreciate
the necessity of economy in these dull
limes, and I am sure that no one In Abbeville
can accuse us of bad faith, simply for the reason
that we have found It necessary to de- ,
crease our forces at that point.
Yours truly,
John H. Winder,
General Manager.

stairs struck twelve, our hero was suddenly
itartled by remembering that his horse was
litched in the grove at Mt. Morlah five miles <

t without disturbing his host who would per- I
laps never been any the wiser but for the ex>lanatlons
which necessarily followed the
Indibg of a strange horse in his lot on Sun- i

A finer or more intelligent looking set of .
sandidates we haven't had in a loug time.
Jol. McCalla was the first to arrive. He was
n fine trim, and talked freely and fluently to
Us Reform friends, having but little to say
.otbeantis. If they heard anything it was
jy hanging around on the outskirts of the
{roups. Tlie Colonel carries the "McCalla
ilan" In his vest pocket, aud reads and comnents
on it at intervals to the amusement of
lis friends. He says he went to bed last Tueslay
night an ordinary every day farmer, but
iwoke Wednesday morning, the best, brightest
and biggest Reformer In the county, all
rom the transforming touch of a "Tillmanr"?r'
It** mill It lit liu f rilu hu
jack numbers of the Medium. He will not
lepart from the time houored custom of doclore
refusing to take their own medicine.
That which he compounded for the antls two
fears ago, is not good lor Reformers uud he
ion't propose to lake It.
Mr. McUaila spoke kindly of General
Hemphill, and said If he deleated him he expected
to see that the old battle scarred veteran
of Refoim was provided for. He only
told one Joke on the General Illustrating his
knowledge of farming. Said he: "General
Hemphill Invited Governor Tillman and myself
out to see his farm, on which there was
nothing In the world but a heifer calf and a
bunch of bullrush."
When the Geueral and others came In a lit
tie later, they caught Mr. McCalla In compauy
with Tom Riley, which thuy seemed to i
roll under their tongue as a sweet morsel, but
Mr. McCalla was stopping at the hotel, and '
Riley Is always atteutlve to his guests. No
man having received more than General
Hemphill.
The General was in fine spirits. Said he
would be perfectly satisfied to hold his own
In Greenwood. He intermingled und tatked
with the autls, as though they were folks and
us good as himself.
None were more bouyantand pleasant than
Hon R. K. Hill, who by accident came with
