TWO NEGROES DROWNED.
Died in Broad River Near Strothers
Were Removing Logs From
A meager report has been received
of the drowning of two negroe men
in, Brond river. on Monday last, near
the bottoms at Strothers.
They were removing logs from the
water when the flat capsized.
One of the drowned men was a
ferry-man named Lloyd McKinstry,
and the other is one of two unknown
negroes from Fairield county who
were assisting him in his work.
I take this method of returning
my hearfelt thanks to the people of
Newberry county for the very hank
some vote they gave me on Tues
day, which I am glad to accept as
a flattering endorsement of my offi
cial conduct as Master of Newberry
county. With two opponents of such
character and ability as were in the
race against me, my election on the
first ballot is peculiarly gratifying to
me. The confidence of my fellow-citi
zens is profoundly appreciated and
my efforts shall be to deserve it.
H. H. Rikard.
Card of Thanks.
Please allow me space in your pa
per to thank my friends, every one of
them individualy for the support given
me at the ballot boxes yesterday.
Serious illness at my home prevented
me from canvassing very actively dur
ing the -last three days preceding the
election, howeve:, in the hour of de
feat and anxiety at a sickbed, I feel
a deep sense of satisfaction in the
consciousness that my entire canvass
from beginning to end, was open,
clean, and honest. I said in my
speeches, and I repeat it here, and I
have no word of complaint to utter.
i-'n people !.ice ryolren and I am sat
I am gratefully yours,
Thos. E. Wicker.
To the Democratic Voters of New
My Fellow-citizens:-To say that I
thank you would be indeed feebly
expressing my gratification at the re
sult of the primary on yesterday. I
believed that I would be elected. The
flattering vote which I have received
makes me more than ever the humble
servant of my friends. Against
those who opposed me honorably I
have no ill will. Those who fought
me under cover and have been igno
miniously defeated can look to their
own conscience for censure, as I have
none to offer.
I shall endeavor by hard work and
study to make for you a faithful and
efficient officer. I shall endeavor to
lead such a life that my example will
be of benefit to others.
I pray God's richest blessings upon
every man who cast his ballot for me
