rHOS. J. ADAMS, ..... EDITOR THURSDAY, JUNE 1,1893. Cotton forms are reported in Hampton county by the Hamp ton Guardian. ? From last accounts- Levelle, the Charleston wife murderer, was stringing beans in the penitentiary. The Florida Senate has passed a bill appropriating $28,000 for a State exhibit at the World's Fair. Better late than nfever, we suppose. "Probably not more than one third of the counties will have dis pensaries at first, and yet there are prohibitionists who oppose the law. _ . The Cadets of the Citadel will make their summer encampment at Aiken. They will come up on the 1st of July and remain in camp two weeks. Thc meeting of the Teachers' Association will be held in Spar tanburg on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th I of August instead of the time heretofore published. The Belgium minister at Wash ington has written to Gov. Tillman for a copy of the Dispensary law. The king of that country has been an anti, but the passage of this law has made a Tillmanit? of him. A correspondent says: It is only a question of tyne^ as to how long it will take a man, to get in the poor house at makiog cotton at 6 cents a pound to pay for bacon that costs him 12? cents to make the cotton. A citizen who went to Corumbia Wednesday says that the object for which the carnival was held in that city was to attract a crowd and get rid of their liquor before the Dispensary law goes into effect. -Rock Hill Herald. There have been eras, or epochs, of lynchiny in South Carolina. Once it was very fashionable to lynch people for stealing horses. Now? it is fashionable to lynch for another crime, but the necessity then and now is the same. The directors of-the Columbian Exposition have decided to open the Fair on Sundays hereafter, although by so doing they forfeit \ show should be olosed on Sun days. "Senator Irby has been invited to make an address before New Prospect Sunday School in Lau rens county next Saturday, when the School will celebrate Children's Day.

To-day, Wednesday, the remains of the great chieftain Jefferson Davis, will be consigned to their . last resting place in Richmond, Va. The funeral train made stops at Montgomery, Atlanta, and Raleigh, where brief ceremonies took place. All along the route the people paid tribute of flowers and tears to the idolized hero. The services at the grave in Hollywood Cemetery were simple, and there the great soldier and statesmen awaits the final roll call. The committee of druggists who called on Governor Tillman to find out the practical working of the Dispensary law and its effect upon them received the following infor mation: Manufacturing druggists will get alcohol at absolute cost and carriage, provided they buy in barrel lots. Retail druggists who buy at retail or less than a barrel will pay 10 per cent, ad vance. They will also be requested to furnish their own cans and to send their orders through their County Dispensers. If there is no County Dipenser druggists will be unable to purchase alcohal at all, thus compelling them to buy their tinctures and all other alco holic substances from manufac turing pharmacists. Massachusetts is moving in the '' matter of having a Dispensary law j very much like that of South Caro- ' lina. A bill has been prepared for introduction into the Legislature, < accompanied by a petition signed 1 by such distinguished prohibition- i i sta as Edward Everett Hale and i Mary A. Livermore. We believe j that the Dispensary law that will 1 soon go into operation in this State 1 will ultimately be adopted by all ! the States, just as soon as the men i who don't drink see that under ? this law the bulk oMhe taxes will i be paid by the men who driuk. ] This arrangement will satisfy the ' " men who drink for they'll get good 1 liquor chat won't give them the j "delirium tremendous."

A correspondent of the Reform Signal published at Darlington thinks the "Straightouts" will run D. H. Chamberlain for Governor in 1896, and some prominent ne gro for Lieutenant Governor. That is the reason they are making so much of the negro now. "The Press and Banner, the Greenville News, and the Newberry Observer would better understand now, once for all, that the Straight outs of 1890 will exact equal rights with any other Democrats with whom they may co-operate, and that any serious attempt to insult them, to slight them, to put them in the position of subordinates or ?penitents who may not open their mouths without permission, will inevitably make them seek the re demption of the State in their own way."-The State.

Will and Joe, and Mrs Petty john drove over to Butler's place, after getting three guns and several pistols, as he thought that Butler would probably at tempt to kill him when he went to get the cows. When he arrived at Butler's place he found there was no one there and he and his sons drove the cows to his place only a short distance from where they were penned. He was just about to relate how the shooting occurred when the wound in his side commenced to pain him terribly and \he doctors caused all visitors to ' vacate the room in order that the patient should not be excited. Mrs. Pettyjohn was seen a little later and she stated that Butler had fired on them before they could stop the drag and get lout, that when they first saw him I he was standing behind a tree j with his gun in his hand ready to j fire when they had passed by. She also stated they did not go over to Hamburg to have any trouble with Butler, but went there simply to get their cows, and went armed because they knew tha) he would try to kill Mr. Pettyjohn when he learned of their intentions. Mrs. Pettyjohn was very cool and collected while talking about the affair and expressed no regrets over what had occurred. MR. BUTLER SEEN. Later iu the afternoon Mr. But ler was called upon and seemed to be suffering very little from his several wounds, and consented to give his side of the affair. He said that he and Pettyjohu had been good friends up to a short time ago, when they had some trouble over a man whom Pettyjohn had hired, when he knew that he was under contract to work for him (Butler) that he had called Pettyjohn a liar, but that did not have any thing to do with yesterday's rouble. He said that yesterday morning he found twenty-eight of Petty john's cows in his oat patch and that he had the right to pen them and demand pa}rment for the damages they had done, so he had all of the cows driven into his lot and notified the owner of i JJ-1-ta-iii out that Mrs. Getsen, his .sister, was pasturing the cows for Petty john, and that he sent her word as she was responsible for the damage they had done he would not charge ber anything, and that if she sent for the cows she would have no trouble in getting them. He stated that in the meantime Pettyjohn, his two sons and about five other men came over to his place while he was away armed to the teeth with pistols and guns and took the cows without saying a word to anyone. He said that he was then told that Pettyjohn and his crowd were out gunning for him and that they had said they were going to kill him on sight. Upon learning this, he said that he armed himself in case they would try to carry out their threat and when he went down to Shinall's saloon he had no idea they were going to drive by in a short time. He stated that he did not see the Pettyjohn crowd until they were getting out of the drag, but that when he saw they were in for a fight he waited until they were all on the ground and then he fired the first shot before Petty john could fire himself. He said that he was very parti cular in waiting for Mrs. Pettyjohn to get out of the way and did not fire until he knew that she was out of the range of his bullets; that he never shot at the youngest boy, but paid attention to the old man and Will. He stated that he [would not have had the trouble with Petty john but that he (Pettyjohn) had been looking for him all day for , the purpose of shooting him down ? and when he shot Pettyjohn he ( considered that he did just exactly ] svhat any other man would have . done under similar circumstances. ' Mr. Butler was also very cool ? and calm over the shooting and ^ ?eemedtofeel that he was per fectly justified in doing what he j pid. , m LATER. i Joseph Pettyjohn proprietor of 1 the Arlington Hotel, died at 3 i Relock on Sunday morning, the 28th inst. Before his death he t raade the following post morten 1 statement. "Some considerable time back Mr. Butler 6hot one of my cows. [ gave $50 for her. I tried to get ilongwith him in peace knowing \ Amt he was a sort of a ruffian and ? arow-beat and bulldozer. So a 1 few days ago when I had this trou- 1 3le over thorp, there were twenty 1 )dd of my cows let loose out of i Mr. Getzen's pasture where I was keeping them in pasture. In the meantime I employed a mon by the name of James Ford. I. did not know that he had ever seen Butler, or that Butler had ever seen him. I knew nothing of it at all. Tom Butler came up to where I was, and abused this young man foi everything he could think of ex ceedingly abusivel must discharge Jim Ford, that the laws says $500 penalty if I kept him. So Jim Ford said to me that he never had hired himself to nimby the year Butler told him he was a darn:; liar, he had. I then told Mr. But ler that I did not care to have an j difficulty with him. So I came tc the house and discharged the young mau, and showed Harrisor Butler that I had discharged him So a few days ago I got a?elephone message. I do not know fron whom but it was from Hamburg stating that Tom Butler, hac twenty-two of my cowf, and hac them penned up. I carne to the conclusion immediately that Ton: Butler had them turned out him self, and I felt so exaspated that he should attempt to extort monev -$22 out of me-so we loaded uj some double-barrel shotguns with the intention to take the cows b} for?a. The top wire of the fence was a barbed wire. Jim Ford. Mr Adams, and myself and Will Petty john, we looked at the fence alic came to the conclusion that thi cows had been turned out; tha they did not get out on their owi hook, but had been turned out. S< we carried the cows up into my lot Mr. Adams said that Tom Butte] and Gardner would certainly com< up there and take them back by force, so we staid up there for som< time after dinner. As Butler anc Gardner did not come,we started back home, myself and my wife and Will Pettyjohn, we all in the buggy. We immediately saw Ton Butler run behind a large tree there in front of the barroom. We intended to turn round and Jgc back. But just about that time Will jumped out of the buggj and Tom Butler shot at him- Anc then I jumped out. I stood oui there in the middle of the ground and shot at him, and he was behind the tree. And finally I thought one of my shots struct him on the right side of the face I do not know, my eyesight is verj poor. He ran into the barroom,anc I ran in after him. Then he shoi me in the head ; I had already ?loji'ttuu-snoumgi.1 1 P?gynTOTi could never stay over there and have \any peace at all, and so 1 thought we had just as well fight it out, and be done with it." I should have mentioned another thing. I was out there one day buying some chickens. Har rison Butler hailed "me and said he wanted to thank me for some thoroughbread eggs I had given him-Leghorns. While Mr. Har rison Butler was talking to me, Tom Butler came up-him and Mr. Doolittle was in a buggy to gether-and Tom Butler said, .''Mr. Pettyjohn, I want to see you a minute. I want to tell you that if you hired Jim Ford I am going to sue you and make it hot for you." I said. Mr. Butler there is nothing to prevent you if want to sue. Go on it's all right." Then I said to Mr Butler, -I do not want to have any difficulty with you. Mr. Ford denies posi tively that he had hired to you by the year. I never was in favor of negro slavery, and I am certainly not in favor of white slavery. He said if anybody said Jim was not hired to him by the year he was a har, referring to me, of course. I said, "Mr Butler, I will have you arrested for that. It is not necessary for you to call a man of my age a liar." He said, You would not dare to have me arrested sir," shaking his finger in my face. I said, "You hold still and I will show you thai; I will have you arrested." I came in the house, and going to a bell-boy, I told him to go out and get an officer. I told the officer Mr. Butler, had called a me liar andi wanted him arrested. Mr. Butler said he did not sall me a liar, and if anybody said fie did not hire Jim Ford by the pear, he was a liar." I said, "Oh, (veil, if that is the case just let it ilone, I do not care about it ;oing any further. We would not hav?i fought him if he had let us gone back. We >vould have gone back out of Iiis ?ray. We wouldn't have gone back :here to shoot at him. Butler shot arst. This statement, taken at 12:20 i. m., Sunday, May 28th, in the presence of Dr. Thomas R.

Incorporated, 1848. Its Policies are the Most Liberal Now Offered to the Public. Is the only existing Company whose policies are, or can be subject to the MAINE NON-FORFEITURE LAW. ! WHAT IT IS. The Maine Non-Forfeiture law protects policies from forfeiture by reason of default of payment of premiums. It provides that, after three years' premiums have been paid, failure to pay any subsequent premiums shall not forfeit a policy, but it shall continue in force for its full amount until the reserve (less a small surrender charge) upon the policv is exhausted. The reserve is a sum made up of portions of each and every pre mium paid upon a policy in anticipation of its maturity. Beginning with a small portion of the first premium, it is increased each year by the addition of each subsequent premium grows larger year by year, until, at maturity, it exactly equals thv. faca of the policv. When a policy is discontinued therefore, there is in the hands of the Com pany a reservo, greater or less, according to the character and age of the policy. Instead of permilting the Company, upon non-payment of premium, to confiscate this reserve, the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law requires the Company to continue the policy in force until the policy holder receives an equivalent for it. in extended insurance. How IT WORKS. If a person, aged 35, pays three years' premiums upon a twenty pavment Life policy and then discontinues payment, the policy wil be'eontinued 4 years and 257 days longer; if he pays five premiums, and then disco'.'- ..ues, the insurance will continue 7 years and 357 days longer If tbV .cy is a twenty year endowment, same age, three years' payment' .A give an extension of 8 years and 150days; five year ' paymen years, 300 days. If the policy is a 15 Year Endowment, ($1,000) same age, three years' payments will secure insurance to the end of the endowment period and $13.68 in cash if insured lives till that time, and in like manner ten years' payments secures insurance for the full 15 vears and $592.17 in cash. These extensions vary with the age of the insured, the class of ?pvnuy, in jia.ie auu uajrp, -mi cauii txtrmvoY- Ot' paymeui?,' HO*~thl&TrTBe" policy-holder knows at a glance exactly wljat he is entitled to if he discontinues his payments at any time. What it Has Done. The Company Has Paid over Two Hundred Death Claims, in con sequence of this law, aggregating in sums insured more than Four Hundred Thousand Dollars. In every case there had been a default in the payment of pre mium,* and, except for this law, the policies would have been of little or no value. Instead of this, the insurance in each case was extended to the time of death, and the Company was required to pay to the beneficiaries under the policies the sum of $418,335.77. fbi Vie o? lie Lav Extensions as Cowed WTTH iPATD-TTIP VAXJTTES. It is the custom of many companies to provide in their policies that, upon discontinuance of payment of Premium., paid-up policies will be given, without the option of extension. This was the practice of the Union Mutual before the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law was en acted, but it now Substitutes for paid-up values the more advantage ous plan of extended insurance. The objection to the paid-up system is that the amount of paid-up insurance which is given upon the dis continuance of payments upon a policy, unless it has been in force a great many years, is insignificant, and of little or no value as protec tion ; and it leaves the insured who ceases payment without adequate insurance at the very time he needs it the most. The great advantage of the extended insurance afforded by the Maine Law over the most liberal paid-up system is strikingly shown by the following comparison, and it will be observed that the paid-up value is insignificant in comparison with the amount actually paid by the Union Mutual. The result of two hundred and twelve policies was this: If the ins?red had received paid-up policies instead of ex tended! insurance, the Company would have had to pay in Settlement of the claims only. $98,197.50 Whereas, inrfact, it did pay under the Maine Law, $418,344.77 Making a difference in favor of the beneficiaries under Two Hundred and Twelve policiei of $320,147.28 The policies are free from a# restrictions, and incontestible after ONE YEAR. A grace of one month is given in the payment of premiums. .1 For further information call on, or address, B. B. EVANS, Manager for South Carolina, j . Office, No. 1, Advertiser Building, 4 .3D, - S.
