The State Board Will Pay Claims.
The directors of the State dispen
-ary have decided to pay all of the
outstanding claims which shall be re
ported to be just. In determining the
justice of the claims the board will
be governed by the advice of the spe
cial attorney, Mr. J. E. McDonald.
There are said to be $675,000 in these
unpaid claims and in a lot of in
stances the liquor has been sold. The

-elaim on which the liquor has been
<disposed of. If there is not money
enough in the State treasury to meet
fhe elaims, the deposits are to be ap
plied on a pro rata basis to settle the
claims for whiskey already sold. In
addition to this. Mr. J. E. McDonald,
the special attorney. will investigate
the 4ther claims to see if somb or all
are Just. Upon his renort the other
-clainis will be paid or suspended. The

Orangeburg. Special.-The State
campaign meeting was held- in the
county court house here. About 600
people crowded into the court room

of the different candidates. At 11
o'clock County Chairman Robert Lide

van. Sellers. Summersett and Cansler
bit hard at Col. Wharton, who came

disprove allegations made by his op
ponents. For, Lieutenant Governor,
Mr. Thomas G. McLeod was very hap
py and grateful over having no oppo
sition. Mr. McLeod believes in a per
fected State dispensary.
Scores Col Ansel.
Mr. McMahan, if elected, would
stand for the stern enforcement of
law. He would not permit any city
to nulify the law. He is running as
an independent and believes the vot
e-s will cast independent ballots. He
is the candidate of no clique or com
bination. He is a free 'lance. Mr.
McMahan said he realized that per
haps in Orangeburg he was in a man
ning stronghold. The Raysor-Man
ning bill had Mr. McMahan's moral
support but, on the other hand. the
Morgan bill met with his disapproval.
He feels that Col. Ansel's plan would
leave the liquor question unsettled.
He feels that a good name for Col.

Blease Attacks Manning's Record.
Mr. Blease claims to have stood up
on his platform for 16 years. In
speaking against the appropriation
for being instrumental in cutting
down the appropriation for this col
lege. When Mr. Blease made an at
tack on Mr. Manning's record, the
rowd shouted ''Hurrah ,for Man
ning.'' Mr. Blease claims that Mr.
Manning, in 1892, called Tillman a
despot and spoke disparagingly of
the judiciary of South Carolina; that
Mr. Manning's platform is inconsist
ent with his dispensary recoerd. The
crowd gave long and loud cheering
to Mr. Blease as he continued his at
tack on Mr. Manning's record and he
was loudly cheered when he finished.

Georgetown. Speial.-The cam
paign party had a fair turnout of
voters here Saturday to listen to
about the usual speeches.
Although the county is a dispensary
one, the prohibitionist got some ap
plause. Mr. Joel E. Brunson said
that all of the candidates except Mr.
Blease admitted the corruption in the
dispensary and all proposed a compro
mise. It was a debauch of the morals
of the grand old State and an admit

Candidate A. C. Jones said that
while a prohibitionist he believed in
voting the dispensary out county by
county. He said he had produced
proof of the dishonesty in the dispen
sary and any ,member of the State
board of directeors receiving a cent
over $400 per year stole it.
Mr. Richard L Manning. who was
well received, facored no radical
changes except those necessary by
changed conditions. While apreciat
ing the evils of liquor he recognized
that prohibition was a failure. He
took off his hat. to Mr. Brunson and
his work and would aid in it, but the
matter would not be settled that way
in our time. The profits of George
town amounted to about $25,000 and
the necessary evil might as well be
made to yield this to the State.
two of the other candidates pro
ceeded to have fun with Mr. Ansel.
Mr. John J. MeMahan said he was an

could not give us prohibition.
