THos. j. ADAMS,.EDITOR
RATS!
Gov. Richardson has not yet
found the elusive vouchers for that
$1,200. The Governor's dilemma
in this matter reminds us of the
following Edgefield history: Some
' years ago the colored parson of one
of our churches was entrusted
with three hundred dollars in
green-hacks, the same having been
collected to build a church. Well,
when the brethren and sisters got
ready to build their church they
called on Brother for. the
three hundred dollars. He searched
high and low, but nary green-back
did he find, and after due and
prayerful c?flKgation reported
to the chu reheat "he hadwrapped
that money up^keerful, tied it with
a cotton string, and put it in the
bottom of his ch i st, but when he
went to look for it it wasn't dar."
The church heard this statement,
but desired to know of the brother
whom he suspicioned.
"Who I 'spicion? Well, to tell
you the Gawd's truth, brethren, I
'spicions rats. Rats eat dem green
backs up."
Now, if Gov. Richardson will
say that he "'spicions" rats of eat
ing up his vouchers the whole
State will respond "rats."
A MASTER SPEECH.
The speech of Mr. Mayfield,
State Superintendent of Educa
tion, is the ablest defence of the
Tillman administration yet pub
lished, and is absolutely unan
swerable. It is so strong a presen
tation of the actings and doings
of the Tillman administration
that the anti papers are scared to
death, and will not publish it or
any part of it. We defy any Shep
pardite in the county or State to
read it and answer it if he can,
and the columns of the ADVER
TISER are offered for that purpose.
We are ablo to publish only a por
tion of this masterly argument, in
in this issue, but will conclude
the paper next week.
May fiel d's argument is irrefuta
ble, read it.
Read Hayfield's speech, oh ye
antis, and "pull the veil over your j
faces."
Tillman says he "religiously <
believes he will carry every county
in the State, Richland and Charles-1
ton not excepted."
If persistent lying can accom
plish anything, jthe anti newspa-l
pers will certainly work wonders
for they have been persistent.
The cost of running the State j
Penitentiary is $1,125 per month j
less under Tillman than any pre
vious administration.
The income from the fertilizer
tax last year under Tillman was
$14,249.25 more than the year be
fore under Richardson.
The income from the Sinking
Fund Commission last year under
Tillman was $11,294.47 more than
for the previous year under Rich
ardson.
t:
Mayfield has not the fire and
snap and eloquence of Tillman, -
but he has put all the facts and
figures and logic of the antis in r
the soup for all time. v
7t
We invite Capt. Hamb Brooks, ]e
and Tillman Denny, and Dr. Shaw, th
and Jas. Callison to read Mayfield, ai
and if they want, to tear him all to
pieces through the columns of the -
ADVERTISER they are welcome to
do so. ^
"Alie well stuck to."seems tobe re
the mott? of the anti papers. They *o
are actually claiming two-thirds of n?
the counties, when they are not ro
certain of one single county in the |
whole State.
C(
The increased enrolment of pu
pils in the public schools under!
Tillman is 6,419 greater than that [
of Richardson's administration,
and yet the expenditure for school
books are $20,000 less.
Mayfield^ speech shows and
proves that Richardson's adminis
tration spent $24,001.71 more than tin
it collected, and left %|^M0 debt T
to be paid, and it waa^paid,. by wi
Tillman's administrJHHBP tu
Mayfield shows that Tillman, . -
Btarting out with receipts $56,- th<
165.65 less than the year previous, JJ
closed up the books at the end of Al
the year with $13,829.30 to the J???
credit of the State, while his pre
decessors came out $24,001.71 be- of
hind.
Any reasonable man, be he Till- m
maoite, Sbeppardite, or Haskell- "
ite, who will read Mayfield will
come to the conclusion that Till- i
man has carried out all his pledges
and fulfilled all promises wherever co\
possible, and an angel couldn't do eaf
any more than this.
Every anti in Edgefield county
ought to read Mayfield, if for no
other reason, just to see how your
newspapers have maligned and lied
about Ben Tillman and hood
winked you.
Superintendent of Education
Mayfield's speech,'published to
day, snows a saving in every single
department of the State goveru
menfe-withou-t a :8mgle exception^
and a total saving of $35,000 per
annum.
The increase in income to the
State last year under Tillman
from the fertilizer tax, Secretary
of State's office,Sinking Fund Com
mission, and Insurance License,
four minor departments of the
government, aggregate $26,438.85.
and the decrease in the expenso of
running the government was, fon
the same year, $35,428.18, showing
a balance in favor of the Tillman
administration of $61,867.03. Can
a reasonable man ask for more
evidence in favor of Tillman than
this?

MR.EDITOR: Many friends from
different clubs in Edgefield county
have solicited _ me to stand for
nomination for legislative honors,
and others express surprise be
cause my. name has not been an
nounced as a candidate.
Permit me to say that I have not
lost interest in the affairs of the
county and State, and I shall ever
be grateful for past honors con
ferred. At the same time I stand
where I stood, politically, in 1886,
when I first appeared before the j
people of Edgefield, and when
they gave me such a flattering
vote. I stand for a horizontal re
duction of salaries and an aboli
tion of useless offices.
Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for
past kindness.
I am respectfully,
C. P. BOOZER.

pears to be the record of a drum

parently, what each girl said:
"Boston girl: Mr. Bunkerill,

We know that many read

he advertisement which an
tounces goods at cost ; and
uch distrust is a wise skepti
:ism on the part of the public,
br no merchant can sell goods
:t "cost and meet his own bills,
vhen presented for payment.
\nd yet we are going to ofter
mr stock of Shoes-one thou
nd dollars worth-at actual
ost, less the freight. These
?hoes are of all grades and

ig at cost are, first, we can
s well afford to sell at cost as
3 keep them at cost ; and
econdly, we propose in the
ature to do only a grocery
usincss, and must dispose of
veryfhing we keep, except

These two reasons ought to
