CANDIDATES FOR STATE Of
UP IN T
Marion, July 25.-Candidates for
state offices aroused considerable in
terest here today, particularly those
in the race for governor. Chief in
terest centered about the charges by
State Senator George K. Laney of
Chesterfield that machine politicians
were attempting to elect the govern
or of South Carolina and the reply by
Thomas G. McLeod of Bishopville
that the only ring behind him was
that composed of the men and women
of the state, a ring into which the
other candidates were attempting to
break. He believed that ring was
composed of the majority of the peo
Mr. Laney was the third of the
candidates for governor to be heard.
After reviewing his consistent fight
for appropriations for Winthrop Col
lege through his 20 years of service
in the general assembly he told the
women they would have to wipe out
that record to scratch his name. He
hoped they would retain their individ
uality and not be herded by any ring.
LThere was no ring behind him and
if elected he would be the governor
t of all the people. Men and women
I who voted against him would have
I to wipe out his record for the white
boys and girls of the state. Would
they vote for a machine candidate,
he asked. "I'm no rhachine candidate.
Are you a machine people? There
are such people around. I've seen
some of them today, who are talking
about the best man to beat Blease
Mr. McLeod, who was next introduc
ed, said: "You've heard this talk about
rings: There's only one ring behind
me, and in it I believe are the ma
jority of the men and women of South
Carolina. It is into this ring that
other candidates are trying to break.

SPECIAL 2-MILL LEVY FOR
ROADS AND COMMUTATION TAX.
The 2-mill extra tax for roads for
1921 was put up with the.ordinary
tax as collateral when the County
borrowed $40,000 for County expenses
Owing to the fact that a large a
mount of tax money for 1921 has not
been collected the County still owes
$7,000 of the amount borrowed.
The 2-mill extra levy for 1922 was
also mortgages with the ordinary tax
to secure the $40,000 loan for 1922.
Until the balance for 1921 is paid the
Board of County Commisioners can
not spend one dollar of this money.
The 2-mill extra for 1922 and all col
lections from this sourc6 must be ap
plied on the debt of the current year.
Every school district gets credit for
its commutation tax as it is reported
by the Treasurer.
