The General Assembly wound
up its work late Saturday night,
and then took a recess until
March 3rd, to elect a United
States Senator for the unexpired
term made vacant by the death
of Senator A. C. Latimer. The
law makes it mandatory that
when a vacancy occurs in the
United States Senate while the
generr.i assembly is in session,
an election must be held begin
ning the second Tuesday' after
the official notice of tne vacancy
has been transmitted to the gen
eral assembly, therefore it is
necessary for the vacancy to be
filled by an election, and cannot
be tilled by appointment.
The death of Senator Latimer
is a great sorrow to the people
of South Carolina. He no doubt
would have had much opposition
this summer as all men in public
life have, but he would have in
all probability succeeded him
self. But be that as it may, his
untimely death is sincerely de
When the news reached Col
umbia that Senator Latimer was
dead, it was immediately follow
ed by the swooping down upon
the Capitol of a flock of candi
dates to succeed him. the scene
was disgusting to us, the corpse
was not cold before there was a
scramble for his shoes. It sim
ply was a disgraceful exhibition
of disregard for the dead. Greed
for office was uppermost: decen
cy and the common proprieties
of life totally disregarded, and
by the time the body was o its
way to its last resting place,
there had been mucli election
eerin g done, and agreements
attempted. Those who had
previously announced a deter
min ition to enter the com
ing primary have suggested
they will not go before the leg
islature, if those who do go be
fore that body will agree not to
ente: the primary, but if no
agreement as to such a pledge is
reach~ed, then those seeking the
lons. term will go into the iight
befc re the general assembly,
and should they, we predict a
dead9 lock such as this State as
not seen since the George D.
Tillrman Congressional and John
S. Wilson Solicitorship dead
locks in the convention days:
there~ is no telling how long it
will last,and the longer the more
bitter will the contezs become.
In~ our judgment no man qnal
ified for the high honor of Unit
ed States Senator should agree
to !.he suggestion of not going
into the primary. Why should
the legislature wish to send a
man to the United States Senate
that should not go before the
people for endorsment? The pol
iticians should not be considered
in this matter, this office belongs
to the people, and we assume it
is the duty of the general assem
bly toelect a man for this great
honor who will be endorsed by
the people. The proposition to
exact a conditional pledge is
preposterous, and is entirely a
presumptuous interference on
the part of politicians, and is
without authority of law or from
There has been a number of
names mention for the United
States Senatorship, some of them
would make excellent represen
tatives, then there are others
who, in our opinion, would have
to beg the senior Senator to show
them the way to the cashier's
desk on pay day. unless adver
dupcoise is to -be considered in
stead of brain.
AKnong the names mentioned
to succeed the lamented Latimer,
is that of Hon. LeGrand G. Wal
ker, State Senator from George
town, a scholar, stateman, ora
tor, and a man who has the
happy faculty of making friends
with out resorting to hypocrisy.
The selection of Hon. L. G. Wal
ker would indeed be one that the
State could feel proud of, and,
one which would mean something
of benefit to the State. He has
served in the general assembly
many~ years, and has always been
considered one of its foremost
members. His conservatism has
savedi the State much bad legis
latica and his powers of persua
sive argument is the crowning
featvre of his success. He is a
mas'er of english, and a logician
of v' ry hign order: in debate he
is cc ?rteous and fair, and his
reps stee discomfits an opponent
with gut leaving a sting of resent
men . LeGrand Walker can
kno< iz one down, and force the
falloi one to lift his hat and
thar him for the olow.
He was born January 28, 1850,
at G-.eorgetown. prepared for
college at the high school in Mar
ion South Carolina, graduated
at P- nceton University, class of
1872 He read law under the
late udge A. J. Shaw at Mar
ion. ad was admitted to the bar
in 1>3. He taught school sev
eral ea-rs, and ever since then, he
has en the leading attorney of
the leading attorneys in eastern
South Carolina. his name has
been frequently mentioned in
connection with the supreme
bench. He has been the scua
tor from Georgetown since 1894,
and there is no man in that body
who is held in higher esteem.
The main reason why LeGrand
Walker is not on the supreme
bench today is his own modesty.
He is as modest and gentle as a
lady, but fearless and deter
mined in the discharge of a duty.
He would make South Carolina
a magnificient United States
Senator, one in whom the seniec
Senator would have a ready
helper in matters for the good
of the Stateand one who would,
by his intellectual force disting
uish himself before the country,
as a broad, liberal, student and
thinker, legislator, and states
man. South Carolina's Gener
al Assembly would honor itself,
and the people of the State by
electing LeGrand G. Walker,
United States Senator.
All legislation for Clarendon
has been successfully accom
plished. The delegation worked
harmonously, and .there is no
reason for the people to com
plain. There will be a great
deal more money for road pur
poses at the command of the
county commissioners, and the
county tax levy remains the
same as last year, that is for
county purposes; of course, we
pay an additional mill for court
house. It has been arranged for
the commissioners to borrow
$5,000 of surplus funds in the
hands of the treasurer, to pay
off one of the bank notes, and
the balance to go on the roads,
which balance will amount to
about $1,800. Then there will
be a $10,000 bond issue, out
of which another note-will be paid,
leaving about $6500 to go to
road building, making in the
neighborhood of $8,300, with
which the -commissioners can
use for road building, and if this
does not relieve conditions we
will be at a loss to know what
In publishing the bill for the
court house, by an oversight,
the names of the commissioners
were left out.
The Commission to build the
new court houselis D. W. Alder
man, W. Scott Harvin, C. M.
Davis W. C. Davis and Charlton
DuRant. These gentlemen are
well known, and we are satisfied
their selection is approved.
The board of registration is
now composed of J. J. Epps, E.
D. Hodge and W. T. Kelly. The
only change is Epps in the place
of Worsham. The delegation
decided that inasmuch as it is
recognized that Salem should be
represented on this board, to
leave the selection to Dr. Woods
and his selection was confirmed
by the delegation.
The "Appelt liquor drummer
tax bill" never reached consid
ration in the House, and it was
filly tabled along with about
200 or more other second read
ing bills chat were hung up on
the Calendar. Had this bill
ever reached consideration it
would now be law, however I
shall if I live, reintroduce it
at the next session. There was
no liquor legislation at this ses
sion, the feeling prevailed, that
as the matter would be an issue
in the coming primary to let the
matter rest until next session.
The present session h'as de
veoped considerable politics,
and Governor Ansel although he
has, made a splendid record, and
notwithstanding the very proper
custom of giving a Governor a
second term, the political tape
worm is too strong in some pol
iticians to withstand the tempta
tion of being lured into the com
ing campaign to ride upon the
crest of a prohibition wave,but in
our humble judgment they will
awake to find their mistake.
Governor Ansel will be re-elect
ed and he should be. If the
Prohibitionists are sincere, the
legislature is what they want,
the goveror has no vote. and so
far as being in sympathy with
their cause is concerned, he sure
ly is not antagonistic to it. Per
sonally he is a sincere Prohibi
tionist, so pronounced, but elect
ed on a Local Option platform on
which the Prohibitionists joined
him, and we think we can safely
say, that as a matter of political
sagacity, aside from the matter
of right and justice, it would be
political wisdom on the part
of Prohibitionists to frown down
all opposition to Ansel, and con
centrate their efforts upon the

friends were so insistent that he
consented to accept if the posi
tion were tendered him, but that
he would not be an applicant.
As soon as it became known
there was a probability of Mc
Leod being made Solicitor, a
rumor got abroad that Governor
Ansel had said he would not ap
point McLeod as long as Sena
tor Blease was Presiadent pr-o
tem of the Senate, because it
would elevate Blease to the
Lieutenant governorship. This
report was calculated to make
Governor Ansel's friends feel
embarassed. as it would surely
injure the Governor in many
counties where Lieutenant Goy
ernor McLeod is very popular,
and we do inot believe he ever
said any such thing, but the re
port is based upon the known
antipathy Senator Blease has
manifested towardis the Governor

by show we are correct in our
estimate of the man, when we
say he is too big, too patriotic,
and too just a man. to permit his
judgment to be warped by the
antagonisms of the Senater from
Newberry, or any other man
whose manifest desire is to dis
credit Governor Ansel's admin
istration. We believe, at the
proper time Governor Ansel will

enant Governor, but because he
is qualified, and that he is the
choice of the circuit.

Again we turn from the busy
scenes of life to the contempla

fore that enemy which has so
mysteriously and unexpectedly
stricken from our midst one of
Hawkins county's best citizens.
A. D. Hutchinson was born
May 19, 1850 and died Nov. 10,
1907. He was married Dec.. 11,
1898 to Miss Lida Wright of
Rogersville. He professed faith
in Christ when a very young
man and joined tae Presbyterian
church at New Providence,
His death was the result of a
very sad accident but in this sad
event we were permitted to see
the hand of God from the fact
he at once gave himself fully to
Him and sought his pardoning
grace and love, and left a bright
testimony that all was well.
For a number of years he was
a stock trader, and was for
twenty years a partner of the
la.te W. W. Legg. During this
time he spent many winters in
the town of Manning, S. C.. and
there made a number of warm
friends, who mourn his loss. He
was widely known in this and
adjoining counties and number
ed his friends by the score.
Of this man it may be said he
was a sterling, honest, manly
man. One who may be spoken
of as a man honest to the core,
true to principle, true to friend
and to duty. A man who hewed
his way through life- without
asking odds of any. Who never
hesitated to strike when it was
a duty to strike and who never
inficted a needless hardship or
wrong upon any man consciou~sly
or knowingly. He possessed
untiring energy. and did every -
thing well that he undertook.
He possessed that gallantry
and chivalry of the knights of
old that made his presence a
welcome everywhere he, moved.
His sunshmny disposition, which
always brought cheer to the
saddest hearts was so emblemat
ical of the happy, sunny flowery
month of May, the month in
which he was born, and such a
contrast to bleak. dreary Nov
ember that robbed us of - this

which he was reared. He was
a friend to the fatherless, the
widows and the orphans and
