Columbia, S. C.. Aug. 27.—0n1y one year j
since 1890 has there been so much inter
est in on election as there is in the bat
tle of ballots to bo woced in South Caro
lina to-morrow —that was the contest for
United States senator between John Gary
Evans and Joseph 11. Earle.
While the tight to-morrow is nominally
dispensary against prohibition, it is in
reality the dispensary, backed by nil the
power of the administration and Senator
Tillman, against all anti-dispensary peo
ple, whether they he Prohibitionists, high
license men or the element of ex-saloon
keepers. The anti-dispensary forces are
following Col. Ja- A. Hoyt of Green
ville for Governor, while the other side
is represented by Gov. McSweeney. Frank
B. Gary, A. Howard Patterson and G.
It Is generally conceded that hut three
of these candidates have a chance of re
ceiving the nomination. They are Col.
Hoyt. Gov. McSweeney and Mr. Gary. In
the first primary the vote will probably
be in the order named. None are so
hopeful as to expect victory to-morrow,
but the Hoyt people think they will
have a long lead over the next highest.
In the second primary to settle the ques
tion, the highest two will compere, and
unless the Hoyt vote is near the major
ity line to-morrow, the chances for the
dispensary man will be decidedly the best.
There are more candidates for county
offices than ever before known in the
state, and on this account, am well as the
interest in the gubernatorial contest, the
vc.te is likely to be lorge. There are
twenty-nine candidates on the state tick
et. and there is not a county in the* state
with less than thirty aspirants for honors
and emoluments, while the average is
over fifty. In Richmond there are seventy
county candidates, while her neighbor,
Lexington, has eighty-four candidates.
On the state ticket only two men are
unopposed, r. R. 'Cooper for secretary of
state, and G. Dunean Billinger for attor
ney general The latter had an opponent,
but he withdrew*.
There are three lively congressional con
tests. Joe Johnson of Laurens, is oppos •
ing Congressman Wilson of Spartanburg,
and there are no odds offered on Wilson.
In the Sixth District. Lieut. Gov. Scar
•borough, J. E. Ellerbee and Congressman
Norton have had a ho* triangular fight—
nnd there also, the issue is very uncertain.
Congressman Finley is opposed by ex-
Congressman Strait, whom he defeated
two years ago. It is thought the chances
ere best for Finley.
But there is extraordinary interest in
the vote to be received to-morrow by Sen
ator Tillman, although he has no opposi
tion. The Senator had declared and reit
erated on the stump that if he does not
get a majority of the votes he will not
jollow the Legislature to consider his name.
there are very few, if any,
persons who believe the Senator will fall
to get a majority, there is great uncer
tainty in this election because of the
quiet work being done by almost every
Baptist and Methodist preacher in the
state, both for Col. Hoyt and against Sen
ator Tillman. The strength of the church
will bo demonstrated, as it has never been
before, in an election in this slate, and
until that strength is revealed there is
an element of uncertainty in the result.
While no really open work has been done
to get voters to scratch Tillman, it Is be
lieved he well r un 12,000 or 15,(MX) behind
the ticket. That this falling off will reach
30,000 or 40,000 Is hoped by some of his op
Big counties in South Carolina have
heretofore made it very difficult to receive
prompt returns on election night, hut the
spread of long distance telephone systems
and epecial arrangements for rushing re
ports from backwoods precincts make it
probable that the result will be known
tomorrow night, unless the vote is very

Kind Friends—l have got some, of the
people here thinking there must be some
thing in the Spring. I gave a carboy to
a poor man who is in bed with Kidney
(rouble. (No worse than 1 was.) 1 am
certain it will help him. If so, friends
are to send him and wife to the Spring.
Mr. Pocock, prep. Hotel Hartford in
this city with daughter and son is to go
there as soon as he can fix business up.
A banker was here; also, two other
w’ealthy men; I toid them to go at once
to Suwanee; explained the benefit there,
more than at home. Still they wanted
the’water to use until such times as they
could get away. That is why I sent for
the five carboys. I have no idea what
amount of water I can sell, but I will
do what I can. but 1 would sooner see
people go to the Spring
Had a short note from Rev. P- V. Har
tigan. He is improved, and said, my next
vacation will be spent at Suwanee. In a
business letter from Mr. Nathen, he said,
my wife is fine. Had she remained at
the Spring two weeks longer she would
be sweet sixteen again.
Well, it is certainly wonderful; all get
benefited by the waters. Chances are
Suwanee will catch all again

PAULDING OF LONG ISLAND CELE
BRATED PIPPIN APPLE CIDER.
This pure elder la served on steamers on
the American line, and at the Waldorf-As
toria and leading family grocers In New
Paulding's Pippin cider is made from
the pure Juice of hand picked apples from
his own mill on the premises. It Is abso
lutely pure apple juice, and all the effer
vescence is natural, and we guarantee 1*
to be the choicest cider In the world.
Leading physicians In New York and
Brooklyn recommend this cider to their
patients, its perfect purity Is guaranteed.
In Paulding's Pippin cider, only Long Is
land Newton's Pippins ate used. The ap
ples are left on the trees until late In Oc
tober when they are hand picked and
placed In a dry roctn to ripen.
Paulding says "the apples are thorough
ly crushed in his own mill and the juice
pressed out and run into sweet clean
casks" The difference between crushing
and grinding apples Is very great.
You will know the difference between
crushed app es and ground apples if you
take some stems and chew them, you will
find that bitter taste which is not with
Paulding’s crushed apples. This cider has
not the extreme sweetness of the Russet
cider, and everyone will find the Pauld
ing's Pippin older just right to take with
