Death of Rev. A. C. Stepp.
This prominent Baptist divine died sud?
denly at his borne near Honea Path laBt
Thursday afternoon, and the announce?
ment was a great t-hock to bis many friends
throughout this section. Tbe following
notice of bis death is clipped from the
Greenville Mpuntaineer of the 24th inst:
"The news of the sudden death of Rev.
A. O. Stepp will carry sorrow to many
households In Greenville and adjoining
Counties. He bad been to Glenn Springs
recently for his health, but was not much
improved by the vMt, and while there
was anxiety among his friends no one ex?
pected that death was so near. Thursday
afternoon he passed away quite suddenly
at Honea Path, where he had been living
for several years. Mr. Stepp was born
just across tbe line in North Carolina, but
was raised in the upper section of Green?
ville County. He was educated at Mossy
Creek, Tenn , and in early life entered the
Baptist ministry. He taught school for a
number of years, and finally settled in tbe
lower portion of Greenville County, where
be married and raised a large family. He
served Churches in Laurenp, Greenville
and Anderson Counties, and his preaching
was always clear, pointed and logical. He
was endowed with unusual gifts in public
speaking, and was a writer of uncommon
vigor and acnteness. In whatever sphere
he moved, Mr. Stepp wsb always known
and recognized as a man of strong convic?
tions, which be was ready to defend with
ability and zeal. He took an active part
in politics now and then, and represented
this County in the Legislature some years
ago. He frequently attended political
conventions, and in 1876 he was a delegate
to the convention which nominated Hamp?

Death of Mr. Barr.
The announcement of the death of Mr.
William F. Barr, which occurred at his
home in this city Tuesday morning at'?>
o'clock, was a great shock to his numer?
ous friends and acquaintances, many of
whom did not know that he was seriously
ill. About two weeks ago he was forcod
to take his bed on account of a severe
attack of dysentery, which gradually
grew worse until inflammation of the
bowels set in, which caused his death.
Dr. Nardin, the attending physician, ex?
hausted all of his skill and knowledge in
attempting to relieve the sufferer, and did
not give up hope until Monday morning,
when he saw that death was inevitable.
Mr. Barr was 03 years old, and was a
son of Leroy Barr, deceased, who was a
well known*citizen of this County in hi3
day. He was born in this city, and spent
his boyhood days in the Brushy Creek
section of the County, where bis parents
settled after they left Anderson. In bis
young manhood he returned to Anderson,
and for a number of years clerked in the
stores of our venerable citizens, Messrs.
8. Bleckley and B. F. Crayton. He
served throughout tbe war, having en?
listed in the Palmetto Riflemen, and was
a brave soldier. Since the war and up to
two or three years ago be has been con?

this city. In the spring of last year he
was appointed Postmaster for Anderson,
and was a most efficient and accommo?
Mr. Barr possessed a mostgenial, clever
disposition, and was very popular with
all of his friends and acquaintances. For
more than thirty years he was a faithful
and consistent member of the Presby?

Lillie Hubbard, who preceded him to the
grave about five years ago. Four daugh?

Death of Col. John T. Sloan, Sr.
The Colnmbia State of the 23rd inst.
contained tbe following notice of the death
of a venerable citizen who was well known
and most highly esteemed by the older
citizens of this section :
"At the ripe old age of 84, Col. John T.
Sloan, Sr., a venerable and highly respect?
ed citizen, passed peacefully away at 6
o'clock yesterday morning. His last ill?
ness began some ten days ago, and al?
though there was at one time an apparent
improvement in his condition, be was too
feeble to withstand tbe shock of illness and
so passed away full of years and honors.
"Col. Sloan was born near Old Pendle?
ton, on Cane Creek, May 24, 1811- He
graduated from the South Carolina College
In 1829, standing very high in a large class.
Only two of hia class survive him?Mr.
Porcher, of tbe low country, and Mr.
Lyles, of Fairfield, being the two.
''Col. Sloan was elected clerk of the
House of Representatives in 1854. He
was re-eleoted continually after tbe war
and continued to be clerk until the Re?
publicans came into power in lt'68.
<aIn 1876 he was again elected clerk and
continued in office till 1890, when he was
not a candidate for re election.
"Col. Sloan married Miss Benson, of
Pendleton, who died before him on De?
cember 18,1889, leaving surviving her two
daughters, Misses Alice and. Eliza Sloan,
and six sons, Senator John T. Sloan, of
this County, Mavor W. McB. Sloan, of
this city, David B. Sloan, of Fort Hill, Dr.
Henry M. Sloan, of Edgefield, Dr. Gourdin
Sloan, of Horry. Barnard C. Sloan, of
Scbenectady, N. Y., 20 grandchildren and
four great grandchildren. All four of the
great grandchildren live in Anderson.
"There were born to Col. and Mrs. Sloan
15 children?eight of whom survive.
"Col. Sloan was the clerk of the Seces?
sion Convention, of tbe Constitutional
Convention of 1665, and of the famous
Wallace Howe. On tbe fiftieth anniver?
sary of bis marriage tbe House of Repre?
sentatives, then in session, presented Col.
Sloan with a handsome gold watch and
chain, appropriately engraved, as a testi?
monial of his lone and faithful service as a
public officer. He was s, member of tbe
Legislature from Pendleton district before
the war, his grandfather being one of the
earliest Senators from Pendleton district.
' He was at one time a man of large
means, bis faith in tbe Confederate cause
led him to Invest largely in Confederate
bonds, selling lands and- other property to
do so. He moved to Columbia In 1865 to
educate his family and continuously re?
sided here since.
"He was quartermaster general of the
State during tbe war and just before the
oity was destroyed by Sherman be succeed?
ed in removing others, saving many valu?
able State records. He was a member of
Governor "Manning's staff before tbe war.
"Col. Sloan, In tbe course of his long
life, bad made numbers of friends all over
South Carolina. His long service in the
House of Representatives brought him in
frequent contnet with many of tbe beat
minds of tbe State. His knowledge of the
political history of the State, thus derived,
made him useful as a public officer and
very entertaining in conversation. Many
of hia personal recollections would form
valuable contributions to rhe biatory of
the times in which he lived
* C>1. Sloan was a capable officer and *
good citizen. He was of a kindly dispo
sition, ready at all times to do for others
His decliningyearB were made yright by
tbe consciousness of a well spent l<fe, and
by tbe affectionate offices of the sons and
daughters whose welfare had always be?n

A Card from H. M. Prince.
Editor of Intelligencer: Please allow
me space in your columns to express-my
thanks to mv friend of the ,4rfrocare for
bis high and very disinterested encomi?
ums on my speech in his issue of the 19th
inst., and to express my deep regret that
he allowed so much error and Inaccuracy
to be mixed up with his compliments.
We are sure that all who know his high
regard for truth, will readily exonerate
him from all responsibility in tbe matter,
and conclude that it was a mere lapsus
pennea or misprint of his devil, (who is
usually regarded as the father of such
things), for surely my learned friend
well knows, with all who were present,
that Messrs. Sullivan and Prince did not
meet nor answer my arguments, but
shied around them like a mule avoids a
bole in the ground. Both of Mr. Sulli?
van's speeches were simply personal
attacks on me and vague charges against
the Conservative party, and Mr. Prince's
first speech was a tissue of generalities,
not at all conspicuously glittering, wisely
keeping out of my reach 'till assured of
safety. I hope my usually courteous and
obliging friend will maka. tbe necessary
correction. H. M. Prince.
