The Senatorial Camepign
Meeting In Columbia.
Along with the seething,
sweating, surging mass of hu
manity, all white except just a
sprinkling of colored, the editor
of The Southern Indicator found
himself on the inside .of the
opera house to hear the speak
ing. He feels that he can speak
dispassionately. He heard all cf
Mr. Jennings' speech and the
major part of Mr. Pollock. Mr.
Pollock made the better speech.
The audience was a represen
tative one, running from the ven
erable and distinguished Dr.
Joynes of the South Carolina
University to a little white boy
sitting near the writer in "the
peanut gallery"-a little fellow
not more than 8 years old who
constantly interrupted the speak
ers by yelling at the top of his
voice-"Hurrah for Coley".
His father had brought along
the little girl, apparently about
six, and these two were as quiet
as mice. No one undertook to
quiry little fellow or a bigger
one just behind the writer, who
had a good voice, and lustily
yelled smart sayings at the two
speakers when they spoke a
gainst his idol, "Coley". In
quiring and information about
the sayings of the other two
speakers, Senator Smith and
Governor Blease, lead us, to say
to our colored readers, none ol'
them represents the sentiments
of the best white people of
?South Carolina toward the
colored people. The sifting pro
cess going on is demonstrating
that that class is very small in
South Carolina. The writer
knows all four of these men by
sight, and knows Capt. Poilock
personally and have employed
him in civil business. He is by
birth and training what we call
a gentleman. Senator Smith is
the brother of the late A. Coke
Smith who was a polished chris
tian gentleman and a personal
friend of the writer, "Coke"
Smith was one of the most popu
lar eloquent and successful
Methodist preachers, and one of
the most lovable characters,
South Carolina ever produced.
Mr. Jennings is one of the
boldest, and most successful law
yers in Sumter County and is
very popular. Governor Blease,
everybody knows. He is a chip
of the old block, his father's son.
None of these men can fill the
place South Carolina needs to
have some one fill in the senate
chamber. To the colored people
when it comes to looking out for
the good of the people outside of
color, of the people of the entire
country, VV. P, Pollock will make
the best senator,. Jennings and
Smith appear to be in the same
class. Senator Smith is evident
ly a Methodist backslider. If he
could come to himself, be less
profane and more guarded in his
public utterances, he has by in
heritance and training elements
to make him a potent figure and
seryiceble public servant. Gov
ernor Blease is in a class to him
self. There will be but one Ben
Tillman. There will be but one
Cole Blease. As far a3 the col
ored people are concerned Cole
Blease is an improvement in every
way on Ben Tillman.
In the final analysis it will be
found that any one of these four
men will do the colored people
about as much good as the other
in the United States senate. So
keep cool, and mind your busi
ness, and on the first Monday in
August go and register and pre
pare to help redeem poor South
Carolina, for 'the Huns and Goths
are now sitting on the throne of
Poor South Carolina
Once South Carolina, Virginia
and Massachusetts were a trio of
states, arjy one of which stood
for what was thought to be great
and noble in the Union of states.
The traveler in this or any other
country hailing from one of these
states felt proud to let his citizen
ship be known, and usually re
ceived special recognition. It is
not so now with the citizens of
South Corolina, white or black.
Every decent citizen, irrespective
of his color or politics, feels a
shamed of his state. If what
these white leaders of each fac
tion is saying about one another
be true, if it were possible for
the earth to open and swallow
the whole "bunch" the people
the Christian people of the Unit
ed [States would fervently take
off their hats and wipe their nos
es instead of their eyes, and say
"The Lord gave and the Lord
hath taken away. Blessed be
the name of the Lord."
