Wilson today vetoed the army appro

it contained from discipline for retir

tion opposition of the war department. A new
bill will be necessary and may, delay

Representative Hay, immediately
after the vetoed bill was returned,
reintroduced the bill, striking out not
only the exempting clause, but the
entire revision .of articles of war in
which it was contained. This compli
cates the situation.
There have been broad inlftnations
that the proposed exemption from-dis-cipline
was put into the measure for
the benefit of a certain retired officer,
who has long been waiting a chance
for a public attack on the army. This
officer while in active service was
very close to congressmen framing
legislation and was recognized as a
power in army legislation.
CATTS AT ANTHONY
Editor Star: You are "agin" Catts

OCALA NEAR THE
RICHEST LAND IN AMERICA
.We take the following from the
current issue of the Manufacturer's
In May, 1912, the writer visited a
land reclamation operation some 10
or 15 miles from Ocala, Fla., where
the course of a river, was being
straightened and 5000 acres of land
which ordinarily were tinder water
were being drained. The plan was an
attractive one, and even at that date
gave promise of remarkable success.
Land which had been under water
waist deep had even then been reclaim reclaimed

cultivation. This develepment gave
promise of showing what could be

a letter to the Manufacturer's Record
from Mr. Edward A. Wright, editor
of the Florida Grower, who writes:
"Ocala, a town of ; 5000 or 6000 pro progressive
gressive progressive citizens, is very properly
termed the center of the agricultural
and stock-raising section of Florida.
' "What is without doubt the richest
body of land under cultivation in
America is located about fifteen miles
southeast of Opala, in the abandoned
river bed of the Oklawaha river. ThL
property is known as the Young &
Ford farm, personally owned by
Messrs. Young & Ford, and is for the
first time this year planted on a large
scale to corn. An elbow in the course
of the river has made it possible for
this tract of land to be drained. A
canal has been cut from each point of
the elbow and the river course-divert-ed
into this canal. The old river
course now serves as a drainage for
these lands, and the lateral ditches are
drained into the old river bed. A dike
is formed at one end, and not only is
drainage obtained, but by the manipu manipulation

all that could be desired.
"Receding back from the vast

American farmer has heard for a

compared to the wonderful production
of such land as is to be had in the

Some Sensible Suggestions from the
Ex-Governor in Regard to the
Editor Star: It has been published
that "Mr. Catts has stated that a de
tective has discovered that the boxes
were opened at midnight," referring
to Greenville precinct. Mr. Knott
states, "I have in hand correspondence
and affidavit that leads me to the con
elusion that if any ballots were tamp
ered with in Madison county, the
emissaries of Mr. Catts deliberately
did it, or had it done, in order that he
might charge than it was done in my
behalf, arid might now use it as polit
I claim that it is" the duty of Catts
and Knott to make known to the pub public
lic public whatever information they may
have in relation to such matter. If
the information warrants it, a special
session of the circuit'eourt, in and for
Madison county, should be held at
once, in order that the guilty parties
might be indicted, tried, and if guilty,
convicted. The governor of the state
should issue a reward of at least
$5000 for the arrest and conviction of
the guilty parties.
It has been published that 75 men
signed a statement that they voted
for Catts in the June primary. In
the recount a much less number was
shown to have voted for him in the
said Greenville precinct, Madison
county. It has also been stated that
some of these 75 did not live in that
precinct. This is the precinct above
referred to. This should be cleared
up. It was claimed that there was a
fraud in .the recount in a certain pre-,
cinct in Suwanee county. Knott's
friends have secured a statement in
which the requisite number have stat stated
ed stated that they voted for Knott. No one
as yet has disproved .the accuracy of
their statement. The Greenville pre
cinct should be thoroughly shown up.
The governor has at his disposal" suf sufficient
ficient sufficient funds to at least try to show
up this fraud, "let the chips fall
where they will."
I notice that a prominent citizen of
Jacksonville, a supporter of Catts,
has written that it would be absurd to
claim that any of Catts' friends could
select one ballot box out of over 10,000
which would be recounted. After a
mandamus has been requested to
count the ballots in three or four pre precincts,
cincts, precincts, it is not very difficult to select
one of those three or four boxes.
After it was shown that the ballot
box of the Watertown precinct would
probably be recounted, it has been
published that said ballot box has
been stolen. If such box has been
stolen, a reward of $5000 should be
issued for the arrest and conviction of
the guilty person..
Under our law, the second choice
votes count as much as the first
choice votes. The second choice votes
were intended to obviate the necessity
of a second primary. Formerly, the
voters who cast their votes in the
first primary (it being their first
choice votes) for candidates who were
defeated, cast, in the second primary,
what was really their second choice
votes for one of the two high candi
dates who survived the first primary.
When we had two primaries, the sec second
ond second choice votes, the same being cast
in the second primary, usually de determined
termined determined the election. Now, in one
primary, the second choice votes are
of as much importance as they.were
formerly, when we had two primaries.
Every one knows that it was very
difficult to instruct the voters as to
how to cast their second choice votes.
As the second choice votes now count
only when the voter cast his first
choice vote for one of the defeated
candidates and his second choice vote
for one of the two leading candidates,
it is very difficult for untrained in inspectors
spectors inspectors to accurately count the sec second
ond second choice votes. In the original
count of the second choice votes,
Catts received about 3000, and Knott
about 8500, about two and a half to
one in favor of Knott. Copies of the
tally sheets used by the inspectors of
the election were sent to the county
judge and to the supervisor of elec election

are public documents, and under the
law, are subject to inspection. When

True religion should enlarge and

Editor Star: When I closed my last
number the 1st regiment was still
encamped near Orangeburg and al
though the discipline was strict and
the routine of camp duties enforced
to the letter the environments were
such that the men enjoyed it and had
the most delightful time they ever
had while in army life, and that is
saying quite a good, deal, for while
what Sherman' said of war is true
when viewed in the concrete, yet
when taken in the abstract army life
even when taking part in a great war,
is by no means all bad. All along it
is punctuated by many very pleasant
and enjoyable scenes and affairs-
beautiful flowers along with the
thorns. At least it was so with me and
looking back now after more than
fifty years, memory unrolls and
throws upon the screen pictures fit
many very delightful and enjoyable
scenes and gay and jolly occasions;
and now, after so long a time, though
the vases are broken "the perfume of
the flowers hang round them still.1
I have no doubt that my visions are
very near akin to those of many of
the old veterans who are still on this
side of the dark river.
Meantime up in Virginia, affairs
were reaching a crisis. Federals and
Confederates were manouvering pre
paratory for the first great battle of
the Civil War, whichy took place at
Manassas on the 21st day of July 1861
with such disastrous results -to the
federal army under. Gen. McDowell.
Just before this battle came off the
1 1st regiment was temporarily relieved
from duty subject to recall, on short
notice, and. the men allowed to go to
their homes. Quite a number of the
men took advantage of this and went
on to Virginia and attached them
selves to any company they could and
took part in the fight at Manassas.
Among those going were Johnson
Hagood, colonel of our regiment, and
twelve members of the Edisto Rifles,
two of whom were older brothers of
mine. Of course they could not en
list as members of any company in
Virginia as they were all mustered in
in the 1st regiment and subject to be
called together at any moment, but
tbey attached themselves to some one
or more of the South Carolina com
mands there, and went into the fight
as. privates and fought with muskets
from Col. Hagood down. There were
a number of commissioned officers

burg. Orangeburg. Meanwhile, the governor of South
Carolina had called the 1st regiment
to colors again and ordered it to mobi mobilize
lize mobilize at Summerville, S. C, on the 20th
of July, so that those who had gone
to Virginia had to hurry back the day
after Manassas and join their respec
tive commands at Summerville. This
place is 22 miles west of Charleston.
The men gathered rapidly and with
alacrity. The result of the fight at
Manassas had blown the already flam flaming
ing flaming fires of patriotism into white heat
and numbers of men rushed down to
enlist in the several companies of our
regiment, while new companies were
being organized all over the state and
regiment after regiment was rapidly
formed. There was no trouble get
ting volunteers or recruits in those
days. Indeed our men seemed to
think that if they did not rush they
would not find any vacant place for
them to get into service. And it was
not only so at the beginning of the
war, but the same patriotic and heroic
spirit kept up through all of the long
and sanguinary 'conflict, even when it
became apparent, as we were without
supplies of any kind to carry on the
conflict, and no source from which to
fill up. our ranks, that we were just
wearing i ourselves out whipping the
other fellows.' And the same spirit
animated the. hearts of the "Women
of the Confederacy." Brave, patriotic
women! Doing, all things, hoping all
things, enduring. alL things to the bit bitter
ter bitter end! No land or country since the
morning stars first sang together,
ever produced nobler, purer, lovelier
and more heroic women-than lived in
our Southland in those days and on
and on until the cfack of doom will
any land ever produce their superiors!
History will keep bright through all
the ages to come, their noble worth,
their heroic accomplishments, their
patriotic endurance, their uncomplain
ing sacrifices, their unsurpassed love
liness and their noble and queenly
bearing. May God bless those still
living and men must hallow the mem
ories of those who have crossed over
the silent river!
But to resume. While at Summer Summerville,
ville, Summerville, on the 22nd day of August, the
regiment was mustered into the Con
federate service, in to-what was palled
the Provisional Army of the Confed
erate States, under act passed by the
Confederate congress on 28th day of
February, 1861. This mustering in
was only for one year and at its ter
mination we all reenlisted for three
years or the duration of the war. As
I have already said, while at Summer
ville, John H. Felder, first lieutenant
of the Edistos, died of typhoid fever
at his home near Orangeburg. HeJ
3 lit- 1- T
was buried with military honors, a
squad of the company under command
of Lieut. James F. Izlar was sent up
to perform the ceremonies. Lieut.
Felder was a genial, courtly gentle
man, a graduate or Yale, and was
liked by the whole company.
In the latter part at August the
regiment was ordered to Cole's Island,
situated at the mouth of Stono riv river,
er, river, one of the water approaches to
the city of Charleston. We went by
rail to Charleston, marched through
the city and took river steamers and
through the ; inland waterways were
transported to our destination. We
disembarked at the eastern end of the
island and marched westward toward
he center of it until we reached the
point which, had been selected for us
to pitch our tents. That is it was
near the center in the length of the
island, but much nearer the water
front than to the-inland border of it.
The place chosen for the encamp
ment was thick with bushes about as
high as a man's head and it required
a good deal of pretty hard work to
get the place in good shape, but it
was not long before we had cleaned
and worked out into a nice decent
camp. On Cole's Island there was an
old fort called Fort Palmetto, built of
sand, shell, concrete and turf, which
was called the old "Spanish Fort,"
because it was supposed to have been
built by the Spaniards long years be
fore, but a good South Carolina histor
ian now living, says that supposition
is a myth, as we had no Spanish set
tlements or forts in South Carolina
and that this old Palmetto Fort was
built by South Carolinians in 1812
when we had our last tilt with Eng England
land England I guess the historian is correct
about it. Anyhow, we found it there.

tions. regulations. They had been there long
enough ahead of us to have wooden
barracks, commissary, etc built for
themselves and their supplies.
,Ot course when .we got there Col.
Hagood being the ranking officer, was
in command of the post, but our
troops and the "regulars" were not
allowed to intermingle, but we could
easily stand inside of our lines and
watch the "regulars" drill not at
their artillery drill, but out on the
field drilling as infantry. It was
profitable and a pleasure to see them
for they worked with the precision of
machinery which was good to look at,
while at the same time it created a
desire on our part to so improve our
selves as to be able to do likewise.
It was a stimulus to us which had good
results, for while we never did attain
the proficiency of the "regulars" we
did make great improvement. I said
we were not allowed to intermingle,
and as a rule that was the law, but to
this general rule there was one ex
ception, the why and wherefore
of which I do not recall, if I ever
knew. There was one of the "regu
lars" who "was not auite richt in the
head," and was the driver of the gar
bage cart of Lucas' Battalion, and
never took part in any drills, guard
duty or anything else, but just drove
that cart and hauled what he was
told to load with. When not at work
he wandered into our camps without
hindrance. In fact our boys used to
like to have him come over so that
they could tease him. Although
light-witted, he sometimes made a
point that turned the laugh on the
other fellow. His name was Jackson,
a rather big, rawbony, redfaced, good good-natured
natured good-natured fellow. In memory's mirror
I can see him now. One day he wan wandered
dered wandered over into our quarters and one
of the boys (I assure you dear read reader
er reader it was not I) said to him, "Hello
Jackson! Are you a regular?" To
which he promptly replied, "Yes, reg regular

that, and don't you know the rest of
our boys raised a whoop and yaw,

dirt, turf and sand-bag battery on
Goat Island, a small island separated
from Coles' Island by a small creek,
and when completed and the guns
mounted and munitions stored in the
magazines, it had lo be manned, and
as the "regulars" could not spare
the men from their garison. Col.
Hagood determined to detail a com company

charge of it. He chose the Edisto

long to do it, arid we rather felt a lit

course in practicing to make ourselves
as efficient as possible we had to
practice firing the pieces at a target
that was set afloat out in the bay.
Maj. Lucas or one of his officers took
charge of our training until we got
the thing pretty well in hand, and
when we got so that we hit the target
oftener than the regulars, we won
their praise and admiration. One day
