Richmond Ready for Vets.
Richmond. Va.-With the proverbial
outstretching of welcoming arms,
Richmond, the center of all that true
overs of the South and the Confed
eracy, hold dear, Is ready and eager
to play host to the fast dwindling rem
nant of the "thin gray line," the van
guard of which descended on the one
time capital of the Confederacy with
the arrival of every -train from the
furthermost stretches of Dixie.
While the lanes leading from the
South ar-e lined with the oncoming
throng the roads from the West and
North, too, are bringing a great gath
erng of grizzled Confederate vetet'
an, their sons and daughters, grand
sons and grand-daughters, who have
strayed far from the shadow of the
Southland during the last few decades.
The reunion of 1922. probably the
last that ever will be held in Rich
mond, is taking on an unwonted mag
altude, because this city was the heart
of the Confederacy, the headquarters
of its government and the site of fa
milar spots made famous by 14. and
Jackson, Stuart and Davis, which na
tive Richmonders pass over with but
scant thought, but which are hallowed
ground to the Confederate veterans
who are coming fired by a return of
the old impulses that made their love
fb the Southland and all that It repre
seated so great in 1861.
Richmond never has and probably
never again will be host to such a
gathering as will be within its con
fines. The city from one end to the
other is in gala attire and the holi
day spirit is in the air.

CANDIDATES FOR GOVERNU
FOR SUPPORT AT F1
Mr. Editor: Some years ago the
writer organized and drilled a Comp
any of High School Boys known as the
Mt. Zion Cadets. When trouble
threatened with Mexico they were too
young for service.
During the World War twenty
eight were old enough to enlist.
Three were turned down by the Medi
cal Board; twenty five joined the
army and navy. Of this squad nine
were commissioned officers, four non
commissioned officers in the army and
two were Ensigns in the navy. This
record made proud the heart of him
under whom they received their first
military training. The Cadets are
scattered now, some. have pitched
their tents in distant States, and to
day their old Captain wafts them the
love and God-speed of the folk who
live in hearing of the old clock.
Sixty six men from the Town of
Winnsboro served in the last war.
Those of us who know them and love
them are proud to believe that each
man performed every task assigned
him. This belief is founded on the
faith we have in them, because if
any one of them has ever told of his
deeds it was when he whispered his
story to his mother; their modesty
and devotion equaled their courage.
In the years to come, on the long cold
nights around the ingleside, maybe
they will tell their sons their tales of
flood and field, when, forming part
of the Army and Navy which helped

R PRESENT CLAIMS
RST MEETING IN COLUMBIA
The State-.Canidates for state of
fices opened the county campaign in
Columbia yesterday, the meeting be
ing held at the Columbia theater.
The meeting began at 10 o'clock and
continued until after 9, more than
four hours being consumed by the
speeches of the aspirants for the dif
Those offering for governor were
heard first, these being allowed 20
minutes each. All others spoke ten
minutes each, with the exception of
candidates for congress, who were al
lotted. 15 minutes, but this period was
not consumed by the latter incident
to the lateness of the hour.
Between 600 and 700- voter s wbre
in attendance at times. There was
little enthusiasm and the meeting was
wholly devoid of personalities. A
number of candidates limited them
selves to the margins of typed manu
scripts, each setting forth in general
terms the policies to -be advocated in
the event of election. Few voters re
mained to hear the final speeches.
Blease Speaks First.
Cole L. Blease was the first of the
candidates for governor to be heard.
He expects to be the governor of all
the people if elected. Differences
which have divided the people here
tofore will be forgotten. No appeal
is to be made to factionalism and no
attempt is to be made to array class
against class. "I shall not engage in
personalities unless such a policy is
forced upon me by some candidate of
standing .in the race. N ither do I
propose to, make any ference to
factionalism unless the ishue -of fac
tionalism is dragged in b other peo
ple," he emphasizd.
He would abolish aH useless offices
and commisoan in *ffort to relieve
A system for pardoning and parol
ing of convicts, similar to that in fed
eral prisons, was urged, "so as to re
lease convicts on the merit system,
allowing each one by his good behav
ior so thereby relieve the governor
of the worry and burden imposed xp
on him in such matters."
Among other things he advocated a
purchasing board for state institut
ions, a water power tax, biennial ,ee
ions, a water power tax, biennial ses
sions of the general assembly and a
one mill tax levy for free schools.
He advised all women to put their
names on the club rolls and prepare
to cast their ballots.
John T Duncan said it was an easy
matter to tell the voters that useless
offices should be abolished. Few ::an
didates, however-, would ever say just
what offices and how many offices
should be abolished.
George K. Laney of Chesterfield
prefaced his remarks with' a brief
statement that he was brought out by
tno ceique and was 'he creature of no
machine. "I am a free lance in this
race just as I have,- been a free
lance for 20 years in the two houses
of the general assembly. I'm ied t)
no man or woman."
Mr. Laney made a vigorous speech,
stressing with particular emphasis
irecsures looking to relief in taxation
and the enforcement of laws. The'
condition of the people was not inci
dent to the legislature. No thinking
man would blame the legislature for
the financial straits in which the peo
ple found themselves. It is due to
the war, followed by the stern mea1 -
ties of deflation.
Mr. Laney pointed to measures
which the last general assembly had
passed in effort to distribute the bur
den of taxes. He called attention to
the state income tax, inheritar.:e tax
and gasoline tax measures. The
trouble was there wlas too much tax
on visible propercy. "If succeeding
general assemblies continue this ef
fort to tap hitherto untouched sources
the time will come when a levy on
this for state purposes will not be
necessary, thus leaving such levy
wholly for county purposes," he said.
The thing that is needed, he said, is
