soou the flames began to make such
headway as to make it impossible for
us to go any further. We saved a
trunk and could have gotten two others
out of the second-class waiting room,
but did not know, until too late, that
, they were there."
The sounding of the fire alarm
brought nearly the whole town out to
the scene of the fire. Along about
dusk it looked as if there were nearly
? 1,000 people around the burning building.
The firemen did the best work
that was possible under the circum
stances, and the only accident that
occurred was to a negro boy who at*
- tempted to pass before the stream from
the nozzle after the pump had been
started. The stream struck him iu the
head and knocked him silly; hut did
J? l:
ol> injure uiui sdiivuoij.
As good luck would have it, there
was not a considerable quantity of
freight in the depot at the time of the
4 fire. Among the most valuable items
were 150 sacks of meal, about 1,000
pounds of cotton yarn, and some
agricultural implements. Some of the
burned freight was still in possession
of the railroad company, and some of
it belonged to the consignees who had
paid transportation charges ; but neg*
lected to take out the goods. It is
understood that the railroad company
carries a blanket policy on its whole
line, and all the losses connected
with this fire are fully covered by
insurance.
Since the fire, the old warehouse,
next to the depot, has been pressed
into temporary service. It is probable
v ^ that permanent arrangements will be
made at the earliest possible moment.
As to which was the bolt of lightning
that caused the fire is not definitely
known. It was evidently from a
distance, however, as there was no
thunder in this immediate vicinity at
the time. A blackened window facing <
at the point where the "Three C's"
wire enters the Western Union Telegraph
office, shows where the bolt,
which was evidently a heavy one,
passed that point.
LOCAL LACONICS.
Until January 1st, 1901.
The Twice a-Week Enquirer, fill*
ed with the latest aud moSt reliable
news, will be furnished from the dale
of this issue until January 1, 1901, for
76cents.
Refreshing Showers.
There have been good rains in different
parts of the county during the
past week, and although these have
not been at all general they have added
considerably to crop conditions.
At Wotk on the Highways.
Various county candidates have been
doing hard work during the past week
making bouse to house canvasses.
Judging from reports the, county is being
work as with a fine toothed comb.
The Way It Onght to Be.
So far as The Enquirer has information,
the York county campaign is
cleaner this year than in some past
years. We have heard of but few vicious
rumors about candidates.
They Did the Work.
There were about 60 people at Beer
sheba la9t Friday morDing in answer
to the call for assistance in clearing off
the cemetery, etc. The cemetery and
church grounds were handsomely
cleared up.
Enroll Your Name.
Is your name on the club roll of
your precinct club? If it is not you
had better see that it is put there pretty
soon, or you will not be allowed to
vote in the approaching primary election.
It is only necessary that you
call the attention of your precinct
secretary to the matter. He may have
enrolled your name already ; but if he
has not done so, he will attend to it at
once.
At Barnett's Mountain Tomorrow.
As has been previously announced,
officially and otherwise, the regular
' county canvass opens tomorrow at
Barnett's Mountain iu Bethel township,
with a big picnic. The Bethel
people never fail to make this meeting
the occasion of a great gathering, and
they never fail to have an abundance
of good things to eat. If permitted to
make a prediction, we will 9ay that
^ if the first meeting of the campaign is
not the best, then the best will cer- J
tainly be something for the community
in which it may be held to brag
about.
Watching the Cat.
A gentleman who attended the cam..
paign meeting in Gaffney, recently
said that up to that time not one of
the legislative candidates had expressed
himself on the liquor question.

Indeed they formed an iron bound

thing that will some day smash the primary
system and force issues into the
general election.
The Carolina and North-Western.
Manufacturer's Record : The proposed
extension of the Carolina and
North-Western railroad into Tennessee
is attracting much attention in the
towns which the line reaches. A com>
pilation of industries recently made
shows that on this road are 37 cottou
factories, five cotton oil mills and G4
other industries, representing an investment
of nearly $6,000,000. From
these plants the company derives an
annual freight traffic of nearly $6,000.
It is understood that one of the principal
reasons for the exteusiou into Tennessee
is to reach coal mines with the
view of supplying fuel to the mills re
ferret! to; also for carrying it to tide- T
water for bunker fuel for steamships ch
and export. The proposed extension m
will be about 40 miles in length, termi- j^1
nating at Butler, Tenn., for the present. ar

Greenwood correspondence Columbia
State, August 12 : Most of the
members of the state campaign party
came in last night and today, to be on
baud for the meeting tomorrow. They w<
all believe in making hay (votes) while
the sun shines, even if the sun shines
on the Sabbath day; but they go about
their work in different ways. Some of
them went to church and others mingled
with the Sunday loafers in the

Death of R. K. Scott.
Greenville New^f Tuesday : The 8.'
telegraph announces the death, at Napoleon,
Ohio, yesterday, of Robert K.
Scott, a name once famous and infajnous
in South Carolina. He was one
of the horde of carpet baggers that ?,(
came down here from the north just
after the war when the state was in
the hands of ignorant and vicious Ne- ?
groes and their aiders and abettors?
the carpet baggers and scalawags. R.
K. Scott was one of the most promi- ch
uent of the former. He served as Sa
governor of South Carolina for two co
trrms?from 18GS to 1872. A great br
deal might be said of him ; but in
saying it The News tfould be com _
pelled to do violence to that very
excellent maxim, "Nihil de mortuis
nisi bonum." tr<
Conditions at Lockhart. do
The Jonesville correspondent of the TI
Columbia State sends that paper the m<
following: Your correspondent vis- w>
ited Lockhart this week and fouud f?]
President Carey and Superintendent
Williams both in their offices and
the mill moving along nicely. Captain
Carey has very strict police regulations
in this town. Blind tigers can't stay ,
there. Captain Carey allows no . hog
pens or waste places within the town, Qn
and the place is well drained, and the js
result is there is but little sickness in
the place. The operatives are of the m,
best class of people. The company is \y
building a new office, which is a, large a
two story brick building, which will an
be one of the most convenient, roomy th<
and well arranged offices in the coun- cat
try. The company, with some help, to
is building a neat Presbyterian church de:
of brick. The Baptist denomination ar<
has a church, aud the Methodists will bu
no doubt build one in the near future.
The school facilities are also good, and 1
then the railroad is a great'conveu- an
ience, having its track alongside of ^
the mill aud warehouses, makes
Lockhart a very lively and desirable (
mill town. ^
A Family of Officeholders.? __
Frank B. Gary, Senator Tillman's cau- ^
didute for governor of South Carolina,
|is finding some difficulty in meeting ^
'the curious charge brought against
him by his rivals for the Democratic
nomination that he belongs to a family py
witb an excessively developed appetite J.
for office. The fumily record is cer- an
tainly a startling one. Mr. Gary is fr<
himself a member of the house and ^
the speaker; Ernest Gary, a brother, coi
was promoted from the house to be u cai
circuit judge, a place he now fills ;Eugene
B. Gary, a brother, was likewise all
advanced from lieutenant governor to th<
be associate justice of the supreme ?*(
court, where he now is; Johu Gary ,n.
Evans, first cousin, was a member of <
the house, then promoted to the sen- P"
ate, then made governor, and finally
rau against Earle and then McLauriu Mi
for United States senator. John Gary toi
l... ? 1 c .1? na,.%, fo<
wans, ailOLUer U1 LUC uuusc VI um j ,
was assistant adjutant aud inspector T1
general, then adjutant general of the
state; W. D. Evans, another of the Bj
blood, a member of the railroad commission
; Barney B. Evans, of the T
same line, is a candidate for ruilroad
commissioner; H. H. Evans, another g0
of the house of Gary, was promoted M
from the legislature to be a member of
the state board of control ; W. Boyd 1U(
Evaus, of the same blood, was the last cr<
governor's private secretary, aud was aP
afterwards made state agent to collect
war claims. Evidently the next play 0f
of the Garys and Evanses in South to
Caroliua politics will be to orgauize an
air-tight office holding trust.?New ']

To Convene Congress.?There (is
no concealment of the anxiety of the
administration over the Chinese situation
this morning. As reluctant as
the president aud his advisers are to
have congress called together, it is r<
not apparent how an extra session can
be avoided, unless there is a very
sudden change in the attitude of the
Chinese with reference to the advauce J
of the relief force. l\
Conger says that for the ministers fo!
to leave Pekin for Tien Tsin under 1(J
Chinese escort would mean certain i
death. Li Hung Chang says that the
advauce of the relief force upon rekiu
means war. These two things
put together are a formula for guu- 22
powder. There is no doubt among
the officials at Washington that the
Chinese intend to contest every foot
of the way to Pekin. At such a rate tn
of loss to the allies as that at Piet- 1,1
sang, the allied forces would be terribly
depleted before they could come M
up to the gates of Pekin. ^
Expenses of the National Ma
chink.?The volume of appropria- ~~
tions, new offices, etc., required by T(
law to be prepared and published at the
end of such session of congress J
under the direction of the committee
on appropriations of the senate and j*
house, has been completed for the first
session of the fifty-sixth congress by
homas P. Cleaves and Jas. C. Courts,

the right party, I offer at private sale
it tract of land on the southwestern
tskirts of Yorkville, known as the Dr.
F. LINDSAY PLANTATION,
rhis plantation includes 321 ACRES,
ng on both sides of the Pinckney road,
lich runs nearly through the centre,
le S. C. it G. Extension railroad passes
rough one corner, and the C. & N.-W.
R. runs within about 200 yards of the
stern boundry. The northeastern line
within lj miles of the courthouse, and
3 town is accessible over either the
lester or Pickney roads,
rhere are under cultivation and in
sture about 200 acres, and the balance is
woodland, most of which is original
est, including many THOUSAND
)RDS OF FIREWOOD, and more or
a valuable timber. That portion of
id which is under -cultivation is highly
proved, including a morougu syaiciii
terraces cast along scientific lines and
from seven to ten years' standing. All
a land lies well.
The Iniildings include a ONE STORY
iAME BUILDING, 5 rooms, in fair reir,
suitable for overseer, on the Pincky
road, just two miles from the courtuse,
a good barn and four outbuildings,
th a well of good water. There are on
3 place FOUR TENEMENT HOUSES,
?h near a spring, and on the place
: springs, all of which are convenient
one or the other of the different culated
fields.
Several of the fields have, with favorle
seasons, yielded an average of a
VLE OF COTTON TO THE ACRE,
d one four-acre tract has a record of
1VEN BALES. This plantation was
proved by the late Dr. J. F. LINDSAY,
ring a period of 25 years, and most of
3 local public is aware that, especially
ring the last ten years of his life, he
ide on it heavier crops at less expense
in were made by any other farmer on
y.other plantation in this section of the
anty. All of the land is as good or
tter now than it has ever been.
[ ask for this plantation $25 AN ACRE,
am farming the place this year and
mid want to give possession January
, 1901; but in the meantime the puraser
would be at liberty to build, cut ,
iber or do anything else that would
t interfere with the cultivation or gathng
of the crop.
The situation of the property makes it
luable as a place to run a PUBLIC
N, and one has been successfully run
3re for years. The gin house is well
ilt, covered with metal and iu good
3air. The ginning outfit consists of a
horse power engine, 60-saw Van Win3
gin, condenser, feeder and a press?all
good running order. If a sale is made
time to enable me to arrange to put my
ck, etc., on another place for next year,
vill put this ginning outfit in without
arge to the purchaser.
