Report of Mr. Giles D. Mims'
As it waa impossible for The
Advertiser's representative to be
present when Mr. Giles D. Mime
spoke last Thursday, we publinh
the following report which appear
ed in the Augusta Chronicle, being
written by Mr. W. P. Calhoun, its
"Mr. Giles D. Mims of the west
side of this county, in accordance
with his pullished notice that he
would address the people of Edge
field today, carried out his pro
gram. There was a fail crowd
present to hear him. The speaking
was at the fair grounds. His ad
dress was temperate without un
necessary verbiage, and on needless
changes in the laws. Mr. Mirna
was an announced candidate for the
state senate, but withdrew from the
race for personal reasons, and his
aim today was to explain his views
to the people.
"He waa introduced by Mr. S.
"Mr. Mims announced his head
ings to be as follows: Good roads,
suppression of carrying concealed
weapons, the establishment of a
bureau of information for teachers
in the office of the state superinten
dent of education, the veto power of
the governor, the recall as it related
to our courts and the Bristow
amendment to the federal constitu
"He was of the opinion that we
had to abandon our old system of
working the public highways, and
that we had to adopt a new system
under the charge of competent en
gineers. The people demanded
good roads and they were going to
demand the delivery of the goods.
"He thought that the carrying of
concealed weapons was a mania,
and that the surest remedy was the
passage of a law requiring every
man to register his pistol and the
penalty for failure to do so, ?100 or
"The teachers bureau should be
put in the charge of the state sup
erintendent of education to take the
place of the teachers' employment
agencies which requiren the teacher
to put up so much money with the
application and who had to pay the
agency five per cent, of the salary
earned. He wanted to cut out that
"He was satisfied that a governtfr
was not more wise than the general
assembly, and that the veto power
should be taken from him and giv
en to the supreme court which was
much more competent to pass on
the passage of laws thai? an individ
"The speaker was1 very much op
posed to the recall as it related to
our courts, and especially the su
preme court, claiming that if poli
tics got mixed up in our courts,
that trouble would follow, placing
the courts between ihe devil and
the deep sea.
"Mr. Mims was bitterly opposed
to the Bristow amendment to the
federal constitution and pictured
the danger of our election precincts
being guarded by federal bayonets
as was the case ?H this state pre
vious to 1878. He called it one of
the most dangerous propositions
ever submitted to our people and be
urged his hearers to vote for legis
lators who would oppose its ratifi
cation by the South Carolina legis
lature. He was not opposed to the
election of United States senators
by the people, but, he was opposed
to federal supervision.
"Mr. Miras was applauded at.the
close of his address."
Fourth of July..
The glorious Four th. waa. quietly
observed ir Edgefield. The banks,
stores and other places of business
were'cloded for .the day. In the af
ternoon . a game of baseball was
played at the fair grounds between
the Aiken and Edgefield teams, the
score being 8 to 4 in favor of Aiken.
At the close of the game Hon.
Hany D. Calhoun candidate for
congress from the 2nd district ad
dressed the crowd. .Mr. Calhoun
was present by invitation from some
of his friends. He only touched
lightly upon national issues, stating
that later in the campaign he will
meet "cur people and present his
views in detail upon ',the issues that
are before the ?public mind. Mr.
Calhoun has a large number of
friends in this section.
