who represented the minority in the
discussion of the measure. During the coming debate on Hawaii, Mr. Finiey will prQttably deliver a speech in the house. 7^ " The news that the Ganson Dry Goods company is no more, will be received with regret throughout this section of the country, and hundreds of people will extend to Mr. M. F. Jones their deepest sympathy in his regretable complications. From the first, Mr. Jones has been the head and soul of the Ganson Dry Goods company. He came to Yorkville a stranger, and with much more limited capital than the public has ever known. With hard work, push, enterprise and commercial intelligence the like of which is rare, he built up a flourishing business. There were others interested in the comDanv. and there came a time, not a great while ago, when it became necessary to settle on a basis of buy or sell. Mr. Jones bougbt, and be paid a price in 100 cents values, that was based upon the healthy conditions of the business be had established without reference to the unforseen contingencies of the future. The trade was made at a time when the probable business of the next few months could only be estimated on a basis of the actual business during the same months of the year before. It was necessary for the purchaser to risk all bis reserve, and this he did. Then came the drought, the crop shortage and the shrinkage of business from natural causes. In spite of these things Mr. Jones was able to meet his obligations by an arrangement with a bank. The failure of the bank, however, renewed the embarrassments of tbe situation and accentuated the lack of confidence natural under such circumstances. Although his property was in the hands of the court, during the past few weeks Mr. Jones ceased not for a moment his efforts to save the situation. His struggle was heroic. He came so near to an arrangement as to most vividly illustrate tbe tantalizing vexations of the situation. But at last the end came and the stock went to sale. Tbe high price it brought is unquestionable confirmation of Mr. Jones's high abilities as a merchant. Never in the history of this section, do we rememl>er of such a large stock having brought such a large price at a forced sale. With it all deep sympathy goes out to Mr. Jones, and among those who best understood the whole ' n / i ?l situation, mere is a wen iouuueu wuviction that no matter what changes may take place, the commercial life of Yorkville has sustained in his misfortune a severe blow. We hope it will be so that Mr. Jones and bis excellent household may be able to remain in Yorkville, that Mr. Jones may be able to regain the commercial position which he has held with such great credit.

At bis residence it is not known just how long he and his family will remain at Atlantic City ; but it was thought perhaps they might remain for some time.

The senator, however, has been kept closely confined to his duties in the senate during the present session, and has been worked quite hard, which is said to be the cause of bis present condition.

Increasing the Cotton Acreage. Savs a Columbia disoatcb : The farm ersin several counties have, by resolution, boycotted the fertilizer trust, but the sale of fertilizers this year is nearly oue-half more thau last year. The inference is that the acreage of cotton has been increased proportionately. Hard freezes have injured small grain, of which there was an increased acreage. Farmers, inspired by prevailing prices, are turning back to cotton. All available land will be planted. The income from the 25 cents per ton tax on fertilizers for the present year to date is but $7,348 short of the income for all of last year. The total number of tons sold last year was 264,496, while this year's sales are estimated at 391,675, Dearly a half more. AT THE CHURCHES. BAPTIST.

To the Good People of Yorkville and Vicinity : In my deep regret at the unfortunate circumstances that have severed between you and I relations extending over several years, I beg to thank you for the ever kind, considerate and hospitable treatment you have accorded to me. During a business career extending over a great many years, it has not been my fortune to be thrown among a more intelligent, generous and upright people. I have found you ever ready to give credit where credit was due. I have found you trt i n ft era of t.hn morit-S of Ill 11^ W Ul^OWuv w? jMwhv w. w pro positions, and of motives, and of the sincerity of actions. I have found you ever appreciative of all well-meant efforts to serve you, and I assure you that the attachment that has grown up within nte for you, is much stronger than I can tell. The exact nature of the circumstances that have brought about the present, to me, very regretable situation of rny business affairs, it is unnecessary to attempt to explain. Possibly it was caused, to a certain extent, by miscalculation and bad judgment on my part, possibly it was aided to a very great extent by the failure of last year's crop upon which so much depended to me. But the details are unnecessary. Whatever direct responsibility may attach to me, I say unhesitatingly that no share of it attaches to you. Although as yet I have no definite plans to announce, I beg the people of Yorkville and vicinity to accept assurance of my highest consideration and esteem, and to believe me when I say that whether I should ever be in a position to serve them again or not, I shall always remember as the most pleasant of my life those business years I have spent as manager of the Ganson Dry Goods compauy.

January 10 w tf NEW MM, NEW BUSINESS! To the People of York Ti " - ~WT-? , TTT ville and v lcmity w e Send Greeting. WW COIIE TO PROFIT AND TO PLEASE! I And On Our Merit We'll Ask For Welcome! By this time, no doubt, many people of York county have heard that on Tuesday 1 i " *" -1 -.n 1 i.1 111 gin, iviarcn la, we uecame iiie purcuascio of the stock of THE GANSON DRY GOODS COMPANY. To those who had not yet heard this news, we hereby announce that such is the fact. We bought this stock not alone because it was cheap; hut because of our desire to engage in and develop a large mercantile business in Yorkville. Although the stock of the Ganson Dry Goods Company might be considered by many as being a pretty extensive one; although it is a fact that the stock includes many thousands of dollars worth of choice goods that are well worth ONE HUNDRED CENTS ON THE DOLLAR, we desire it to be understood that our purchase of it was merely as a side issue, like, and we propose to consider it, not as a basis of something to build to; but merely as a remnant. COMMENCING TODAY and CONTINUING THROUGH THE NEXT THIRTY DAYS, or at least the balance of this month, and the first week in April, we propose to conduct an unheard of slaughter of the entire Hniifirtn stnplr inr?liir1injr EVERYTHING TT CONTAINS?superior, good, bad or indifferent. It is our desire to literally scatter these Goods to the four winds, and to every purchaser who brings a dollar, we propose to give him as nearly as possible SOMETHING LIKE TWO HUNDRED CENTS OF VALUE. We might take up considerable space in naming prices; but up to this time we have been too busy to systematize the stock and designate the figures that we propose to quote. But that is unnecessary. WE KNOW WHAT CHEAP MEANS, AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS, and for the present that is sufficient. Come and see. Immediately after getting possession of the stock and store of the Ganson Dry Goods Company, our Mr. J. M. HEATH left for the Northern Markets, where he will purchase carloads of seasonable Dry Goods of every description, including CLOTHING, SHOES, HATS, CAPS, SILKS, PRINTS, RIBBONS, DRESS GOODS, LACES, AND, IN FACT, EVERYTHING. By the time this has been circulated among the people of this county, these Goods will have begun to arrive, and they will pour in from now on continually. We will have ANYTHING and EVERYTHING IN DRY GOODS AND NOTIONS anybody can want, and in prices and values we w ill compete with the world. This is all we have to say today. We will give you more particular details later on. In the meantime, if you are looking for BARGAINS, GREAT MONEY-SAVING BARGAINS, don't rush off too quickly to Chester, Rock Hill, Gastonia or elsew here; but COME TO YORKVILLE AND SEE J, M.
