THE SENATEC RACK.
The Laurens Advertiser reviews th
race for the United States Senate in it
last paper in a coluwn In regard t
the several candidates Editor BalI give
his opinion -s to their strength at thi
writing. Of course it is only an opin
ion. As to Mr. Latimer Editor Ba:
says: "The impression now is that Lat,
mer is Tillman's favorite. It is said o:
the other hand that Latimer is nc
strong in his own county * * Johr
stone is strong, undoubtedly stron
throughout Latimer's old district " "I
is thought this district will divide b4
tween Latimer and Johnstone." "Ter
are men in t1fe race,'' says M r. Bal
"with whom Latimer will not measui
in attainments or speaking power, bi
he has pertinacity, dogged pert inacit,
and is a stayer." Mr. Ball considei
Jno. Gary Evans a factor, but says it
certain he cannot be elected. As y
Mr. Evans has not filed his p!edg
though he has until noon of nei
"As to Mr. Henderson, an impressic
is abroad," says Mr. Ball, "that be
one of the two leading candidates *
He is an able lawyer, a good speaker,
delightfully pleasing gentleman %% ho
to know one must like." But it
thought as he hails from the same se
tion as Col. Elliott they will divi
their strength, and as he is not know
in the Piedmont he will no; have ti
voter there that Johustone and Lai
mer and Evans will.
Mr. Ball considers Mr. Hemphill I
no means out of the question, becau
he is well equipped, and though for :,1
past ten years he has maintained h
residence and law office i:j Washingto
still bis legal residence has been
Ches:er County, this Stae
As to Col. Eiliott, Mr. Ball say
"Col. Elliott, like Mr. Evans, we b
lieve has no chance. Be is a first cla
man too, an absolutely straigbt man
Of Mr. Johnstone, Mr. Bali sayt:
"George Job ustone is a man of pow
-one of the half dozen very ablest mE
in public life in the State. He has
in him to-give to the campaign a zeE
a dat2h and go tbat no other candida
can give it. He is a great speaker at
marvelously resourceful. He has d
voted friends and devoted eneii
plenty of botb. How he is known
the old Third District which he repr
sented in congress one term and h
caanvassed several times has alreat
been said. In Columbia, Laurei
Greenville and Spartan burg he is as
lawyer almost as well known as met
hers of the local bars. It is possib
that Johnstone will make the pa
throughout the running an 1 make it
hot that it will fret every other canc
date to stay on his trail. But Joh
- stone is not regarded as a cautious
especially shrewd politician. He mig
win in a rush or he might be distanced
Of course th is covers only the opinia
of one man, and in considering it
have endeavored to be fair to all of t
candidates, for personally we like all
* them They are clever and hightoni
gentleman and the State would not1
hurt with the selection of any one.
Newberry ('ounty, of course, is f,
Col. Johnstone, and desires bis ele

member of the constitutional conve
tion told us a ' ear or more ago I bst
was just then beginning to see andr
alize more than ever before the gre
ability of Col. Johnsetone in the po0
tions on tbe debatable questions whis
were before that convention, and t1
almost absolute correctness of those r
sitions and thc wisdom and foresig
with which Co!. Johnstone could me

Newberry will press Col. .Johnsto:
for the exalted and honorable positi<
of United States senator because he
fit ted to fill it with credit to biose
his State and his co)untry, and will
able to bold his own with any of ti
giant intellects in the greatest deliber

This newspaper expects to have ye
little if anything in its columna in t:
way of reports of the State Campail
meetmeis, as we are sure our readers a
,not interested in the speec bes of the ca
dates to any great extent. Every new
paper in the state should refuse to use
columns to advertise these candidat<
for no cne is berefitted except the offi
seekers themselves -Bamuberg H eral
We do not agree with our cotenmpora
entirely in this position. Some of ti
candidates do try to impose upon tl
newspapers, but the newspaper al
owes a duty to its readers; at les
to the extent of giving them su<
information in regard to the m<
who are seeking their suffrage that th<
may form an intelligent conclusion at
be able to choose the best men. It
true this is not always done even wh<
the information is at hand. Lookit
at the question from this viewpoint
have from time to time published son
facts in regard to the men who were see
ing the votes of the people of this count
We admit the newspapers print a gre
many things for which they should r
ceive pay and for which many times the
do not even receive thanks. The new
paper must use a little judgment as we
as other people.
The State campaign opens next Tue
day and for six weeks on a dead stretc
the patriots will walk abroad over ti
s+tat Some of them mayr he small an
some great but then it is not given to n
every man to have ten tallents and some- p
times the nan with one tallent is worth p
more in a1 the essentials of true manhood a
than the one who imagines he has s
many and endeavors to dictate. Let all
the candidates have a fair deal. 5
The comniencement season will be s
with us next week and in accordance
s with our custom for many years we will
give up our columns largely to the com
mencement orator and the young men
. and young women. It is a great day
2 for the young folks and we always try to
t enjoy it with them. Let us all help
_ them to be happy.

e one considlerationi to its importance But
.simiply education, my (dear friends, d *n't
. make a mar a good citizen, neither does
t it make reputation and character There
-is a willful neglect of a little more moral
y tr iining, even by some of the very pil
s- lows of our church, who are certainly ad
11 vocating secular training and saying but
very little about morality. If you want
to make good and useful citizens out of
syour children open the WVord of God be
h fore their eyes. Spread it wide, impress
e Iit upon their minds We must x.ot de
d I end too much upon secular training We
iust let our souls be subject unto higher

nd they that resist shall receive to them
elves damnation, sayeth old St. Paul.
The death of Miss Carrie Wicker, the
,oungest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Da
,id Wicker, of near Pomaria, was quite a
hock to this conimunitv. About ten
lays previous to her death she was taken
vith bilious fever, and last Friday morn
ng her physician left her doing appar
Ltly well, but her mission on earth was
,nded, the day of separation had come.
n the evenning of the same day she was
:aken very suddenly with conjestion,
mnd in a short time the soul returned to
3od who gave it. The funeral services
vere conducted by her pastor, Rev. J. A.
3igh, at the home or Saturday even
.ng following her death, after which
:he body was laid to rest in the cemetery
)f her dear old church, St. Paul's. Her
ge, as we learn, was about 18. Another
)ne of the very blooms of life have not
nly faded, but died. Dear young friends,
as well as to the old, what does this mean
to you? A warning. Be ye therefore
ready, for in such an hour as ye think
not the son of man cometh. The dear I
parents have our deepest sympathies.
May God help them to meet their dear
daughter in that brighter and upper land
where pain, sickness and death is felt no
