SEND E, 0. SMITH TO THE SENATE
Some Good Reasons Why He Should
Represent South Carolina in That
Some of the politicians have
pharged that Hon. E. D. Smith
has used the Southern Cotton
Association as a means of riding
Into office, but the thinking
man, the farmer (the real pro
ducer of wealth), and even the
business man, must admit that
the work done by E. D. Smith
throughout the South, and in
South Carolina particularly, has
brought more nim ney to the
farmer, the merchant, the doc
tor, the lawyer and to every
other class, than that of any
other man who has espoused
the cause of the South. His
work has brought results in the
increased price of cotton which
Mr. Smith and his associates are
largely responsible for. bringing
about, has made the people of
South Carolina-all of them
more prosperous than they have
ever been before.
Mr. Smith attended,the Uln
versity of Sout~bet-rolina, and
is an alqinwda' of Wofford Col
'le receis ed his master's
degree at Vanderbilt University,
the great Methodist institution
of the South.
He comes of distinguished an
cestors, being a brother of the
lamented Bishop A. Coke Smith.
Mr. Smith is an orator of na
tional repute, and would be able
to hold his own with the
"giants" of the Senate.
With Smith in the United
States Senate, South Carolina
would again come into hor own
and be heard from by the rest
of the country. Mr. Smith has
a world of energy; he would'not
only hold his own on the floor
of the Senate, but his energetic
work in the committee room
would count for South Carolina.
*Every farmer should realize
that he has something at stake
in the second primary. The
question is whether your can
didate will win- or be defeated.
With your help he will win by
a. very large majority, but if
you fail to do your duty and
remain at home on the day of
election, of course he may loose.
He is your candidate, becausee
he is one of you. H e is a farmer
like yourself. He plants corn
and cotton just as you do. Your
interests are his interests, be
cause when the price of corn
and-cotton and other farm pro
ducts goes down, -It hurts him
just as much as It hurts you.
Buit what does Evans'cate about
the price of farm productsl He
k wyer and the legal repre
~ehtahr~of one of the largest
'totions in the world. His
i~t~stsare . all against 'the

A=( Dy tne way, ta1nen whe
one of your number has ie
an* honest living on the farp"all 1
of his life and by the sweat of
his brow and the work of is
brain placed himself front an4
foremost among the leading,
men of his state, don't you think
it is your duty to support him I
in a fight like this? If Smith
can't win this fight because he
is a f irmer, then why are you
taking the trouble to educate
your boys? Smith must win,
and you must help him.
Hon. George S. Legare, con
gressman from Charleston, who
is in Pickens, is urging the elec
tion of Hon. E. D. Smith for
congress. This, of itself, should
insure him a large vote in Pick
ens county, as Mr. Legare is
very popular here, and a great
deal of credence and weight is
given to his utterances and
A vote for E. D. Smith for
congress does not mean any
broken promises, but it means
that the best interests of the
state of South Carolina will be
taken care of, and any legisla
tion that will help the farming
class, as a whole, will be per

To the Democratic Voters of
Through the kindness of the
voters throughout this circuit in
the first primary election, I am
in the second race for Solicitor.
I desire to express my thanks for
this generous support, and shall
always be profoundly grateful
It has been suggaoted that I
am too young for this office. I
am twenty-five years old. At
that age Hon. W. A. Barber
was elected Attorney General of
this State, and so distinguished
himself that he was reelected
without opposition. Hon. Thos.
S. Sease of Spartanburg was
elected Solicitor of the Seventh
Circuit when he was younger
than I am, and he is recognized
as one of the ablest prosecuting
officers In the State. Hon. Geo.
Bell Timumerman was elected
Solicitor of the Fifth Clrquit at
the age of .twenty-three, and so
well has he preformed his duties
that he has just been reelected
I feel myself fully competent
to discharge the~duties of the of
fice with credit to .myself and
with full iregard to the public in
terest. That I am thus judged
by the lgeople who know nie best
is demonstrated by the fact that
I led the ticket In my old home
county, Anderson, and in the
City of Anderson, where I form
erly lived, and in the City of
Greenville where I now live.
I not only read law In the
offlee of of lawyers of wide rep
utation for legal learning and:
who are among the leading law
yers of the state, but I took a
course In' the law school of the
University of North Carolina,
a.nd have for several years been
In the actiye practice of my pro
fession in Greenville.
Againe xpressing my appre
clation of the handsome vee
given me, and assuling you of
my gratefulness for -your vote

election, I am,
Yours very truly,
Proctoi, A Bonhami.
