STATE CAMPAIGN.'
The Progress the Candidates Are
Making in the Canvass.
; GETTING LESS PERSONAL.
Patterson's Charges Against GovMcSweeney
Fall Flat What
the Other Candidates
Have to bay.
Since our last report the candidates
have visited the counties of Dorchester,
Charleston, Colleton, Beaufort, Hampton.
Barnwell and Bambere, in each of
which they were cordially received and
given a patient hearing. The speeches
made at all the above places were substantially
the same as published k*t
week. At Walterboro Mr. Patterson
took a hand primary to see how many
supporters he had in the crowd of three
hundred. About thirty hands were

as he did not a3k for the negative side
of the question.
At Beaufort, Capers said McMahan
was an imperialist, in that he wanted
to appoint county superintendents and
faculties of the county normals; also
that State summer school faculty are
vUWikUCxii bcauucio.
MoMahan replied that there was a
movement to take elections of county
superintendents ou*; of the hands of the
people in order that "jack-leg" politicians
could not keep out trained and
expert teaohers. Ihis would not affect
efficient superintendents now in offiee.
W. D. Evans rendered an account of
stewardship. Ee had served six
years. A fellow in the gallery had objected
to a marriage because he wanted
the "gal" himself. That was the way
with his opponents.
? Col. Wharton referred to Beaufort's
record in overcoming large majorities.
"Let them move hell if they want, but
don't let them move the dry dock," he
said, in paraphrasing another candidate's
joke.
B. B. Evans said that'Beaufort'shar
bor is useless as a point of shipment,
as the town is "bottled up by the Coast
Line. He renewed his charge that W.
D. Evans had written to Lucas, presi
dent of the Laurens mill, that he was ;
not responsible to the legislature but to j
the people. He had the applause. ,
The gubernatorial revenue cutters }
then got under headway, chasing blind j
tigers. McSweeney was well received, j
He hadrlived in the neighboring county,
had rn.aa.ried in Beaufort county and ?
had always stuok by E?.aufort in her \
trials. His speech was about the same (
as at Charleston. He made an appeal (
against lynch law. He would have had $
the notorious scoundrel Thomas tried ^
and hanged long ago, and he decried de- g
lays in court in sacn neiaoas crimes. ?
flo advocated an improved arsenal for j
^*he Beaufort artillery. (Cheers). He ]
jpKed any of his opponents to have one
single word against his official record. x
Col. Hoyt told of his record since j
1876, through 1890 and down to the ]
present day as a servant of the Demooratio
party, without asking Tor office. (
He had been one of those to petition ]
for the prohibition election in 1S92 f
whieh led up to the dispensary law. ]
He opposed high license as he op- j
posed the dispensary (Cheers.) There <
is now ten times as much liquor drunk ^
in Greenville oounty'outside of the city ,
as under prohibition. The blind tiger3 ,
buy liquor from the dispensarv. The
h demoralization of upper Carolina is
forty timeB as great as under saloons.
Mr. Patterson without much prelimi
naries began to discuss the issues in
the campaign."' He made the dispensary
the main topic and defended it as
"hfl diil at Oraneetmre. Col. Hovt had
asked him did nine tenths of the" Bap- 1
tists of the State drink liquor, and Patterson
in the course of remarks said
that a lot of them do and if all the Baptists
who drink liquor be turned out
there would not be many left in that
church, He wanted to know if it were
worse for him, vice president of the
Baptist convention, to advjcate dispensary
than for Col. Hoyt who had been
president to advocate coalition between
prohibition and high license as he did \

McSweeney rwith evading the dispen- 1
eary issue and covering it up with local
matters. When he said there were only
four constables in Charleston some fellow
said that was too many (Cheers.)
Patterson showed that 20 persons in
.Beaufort use revenue licenses. This is
evidence of violation of the dispenary
law. His speech was very nearly the
original, but the sensational parts were
left out and itvas better therefor.
Mr. Grary made a speech along the I
usual lines. Yesterday Col. Hoy t had
charged that he, liary, fcad not voted
f for the Robinson local option bill. He a
did not recall the purport of that bill ,
but had voted for the Archer bill, (
which i9 almost identical with his platform.
Gary's applause was next *.hat )
of McSweenev.
The candidates for lieutenant governor
then took the stump. About 15 ,
voters and the negro band were left for
them to talk to and it was nearly midnight
when Capt. Jennings pronounced
the benediction. (
The campaigners organized in order
to allot the time for speaking at the
several points to be visted. Col. Hoyt
was selected as chairman and Ellison
"*1 Capers secretary. The candidates are
never quite satisfied with allotment of
time.
Hampton County had her campaign
meeting Thursday. Governor
JMcSweeney gave a cordial welcome to
the candidates to the homes of Hamp?
ton. He made no speech, but simply
asked the people to take him on his rec
ord.
Col Hoyt was greeted with hand-clapping.
A number of ladies in the audience
were supplied with beautiful bouquets
and this evidently inspired Col
Hoyt, for be made a very earnest speech
and, as was suspected, he was the
favored of the fair sex.
In regard to his editorial of last winter,
in which he had advocated the
coalition of all opponents of the dispensary,
he said that he had agreed to it
on account of the Prohibition minority
of 25 to 140 in tne .Legislature, .tie naa i

The following is the weekly bulletin
of the condition of the weather and
crops of the State issued last week by
Director Bauer of the South Carolina
section of the United States weather
bureau's weather and crop servioe:
Daring the week ending 8 a, m.
Monday, June 18, the temperature
averaged slightly warmer than usual,
but was free from extremes, *and was
highly favorable to crop development
* There were widely scattered showers
every day in the week, generally light,
but heavy in the was tern portions, on . Wednesday,
Saturday and Sunday,- where
the ground was still wet from the
previous week's heavy rainfalL On
Saturday and Sunday the showers were
more general, covering the entire State.
Except in the western portions, where
the rains hindered cultivation, and in
portions of Bamberg, Barnwell and
Orangeburg counties, where the ground
was still wet from previous rains, the

Crops of all kinds made favorable
progress under the above weather conditions
except in those sections where
there has been an excess of rain, making
the soil too wet for cultivation, and
fields are becoming grassy.
Corn is small for the season, but has

Woodward made a break and escaped.
He went quickly to his farm, secured a

Caipet-Bageers in Cuba.
A disp&tch from Havana says it is
probable that Eates G. Bathbone, the
raspended director of posts, trill be ar ested
within the next few days. The
costal inspectors assert that they have
jvidenoe implicating him beyond any
question. Mr. Rathbone's replies in
ihe course of the examination Thurslay
before Fourth Assistant Postmas
?r G-eieral Bristow, and the inspec;ors,
were regarded as very unsatisfactory,
more than establishing the suspicions
that have been forced upon the
nvestigators during the past few
reeks, until proof has accumulated to
inch an extent as to compel them to
ook upon Mr. Rathbone as guilty. It
s also understood that the authorities
