How Woul You Have State Governed?
Your vote next Tuesday will show
not so much what man you want to be
governor of South Carolina as it will
show in what manner you desire to see
the State governed. The people had
four years of Governor Blease's ad
ministration and they have had nearly
two years of Governor Manning.? Now
which of the two gave the people the
most satisfactory administration? Place
their records side by side and then

Criminals Will be Set Free,
lt is still fresh in the minds of the
people of South Carolina how verdicts
of honest jurors and sentences of the
courts were set at naught during the
four years prior to Governor Manning's
administration. Something like 1,500
criminals were given their liberty du
ring that time, and if Ex. Gov. Blease is
elected to a third term is it not reason
able to expect a return of this horrible
condition of affairs?
That criminals and the crimina! class
over the State very earnestly desire
Mr. Blease's election is proven b$ an
incident which occurred in this county
on the day of the first primary. As a
representative citizen of this county
went to the polls last Tuesday, travel
ing the road where convicts were
working, two members of the chain
gang whom he knew appealed to him
to vote for Mr. Blease. They said, in
effect: "If Mr. Blease is elected we
can get a pardon. Some white men
already have the money waiting for
him to be elected governor". These
two convicts asked two other men the
same day to vote for Mr. Blease, giving
the same reason.
This incident reveals, in advance, the
condition that will prevail for the next
two years, if Mr. Blease is elected.
Criminals who were regularly tried and
convicted by honest, jurors at consider- i
able expense to the taxpayers will be
set free to resume their criminal course,
and the criminal class all over the
State will be made bold by believing
that they have a friend at the seat of
government who will give them?their lib
erty if caught in the meshes of the law.
We have a law providing jail or
chaingang sentence for blind tigers,
without alternative of fine, and every
unprejudiced man must admit that this
law now has a deterrent effect, but if
Mr. Blease is elected blind tigers will
feel assured that he will pardon them
when convicted, which will practically
nullify this very effective law.
Mr. Cooper's Manly Statement.
As soon as the result of the first pri
mary became sufficiently known to de
termine who would be in the second
race for governor, the Hon. R. A.
Cooper issued a strong and manly state
ment to the effect that he would give his
undivided.support to Governor Manning.
The position which Mr. Cooper has
taken has strengthened him with a
large number of people.
Instead of sulking in his tent or re
maining neutral, Mr. Cooper has allied
himself with''the people who desire to
see law and order prevail in South
Carolina, and we confidently believe
that the vast majority Of Mr. Cooper's
friends will follow his very worthy ex
ample. We believe they will go to the
polls and cast their ballots for the Hon.
Richard I. Manning for governor.
Vote Next Tuesday.
Unless providentially kept away from
the polls, every voter whc has enrolled
his name for the Democratic primary
in Edgefield county should vote next
Tuesday. It is a duty that every white
man owes society and the State. No
patriotic citizen will allow private bu
siness to keep him from the polls. He
should make every reasonable sacrifice
for the public good, especially when
South Carolina is facing so grave a
Go to the polls next Tuesday and let
your ballot be on the side of good gov
ernment, law and order. Your vote
or your failure to vote, will have its
weight in determining whether South
Carolina will be properly or improperly
governed for the next two years. Not
only go to the polls yourself but urge
upon your neighbor the necessity of
his doing likewise. If all of the citi
zens of South Carolina who stand for
good government, law and order, will
vote next Tuesday, IT IS PRACTI
CALLY CERTAIN that South Caro
lina will be properly governed for the
next two years.
Do not disregard this appeal to YOU
to DO YOUR FULL DUTY next
Retaliatory Measure Adopted.
Congress has done within the past
few days what it should have done sev
eral months ago, and that was to enact
a retaliatory measure striking at the
allied blacklist and British interference
with American mails. England's treat
ment of America and American inter
ests has not been altogether blameless
and it has appeared at times that those
in authority in this country have been
rather too| slow in calling her to account.
This is especially true of the black
listing of certain American export
ers and the seizure of United States
However, congress has finally acted
in a way that will lead to a change of
policy on the part of (the British gov
ernment. The act just passed gives
?he president the power to "deny the
use of mails, express, telegraph, wire
less and cable., facilities to citizens of
nations which do not accord the Ameri
cans all facilities of commerce." It
also vests the president with the power
to withhold clearance to all vessels that
discrimnate against American ship
The enforcement of this act will
make England feel the effects of the
policy adopted some months ago that
has worked a hardship on American
interests. It] is merely paying her in
her own coin.
Interested Outsiders Locking On.
Race track gamblers in the North
and distillers who compose the whole
sale liquor trust will as eagerly await
telegraphic news from the South Caro
lina election next Tuesday as will any
interested citizen in this State.
The horse racers who have been out
lawed in all except two or three States
would like to see the election of Mr.
Blease so they can resume their raze
meet near Charleston in violation of
the laws of South Carolina. These
parasites have made no attempt to con
duct the races since Governor Man
ning went into office. The why is too
evident to state.
The wholesale liquor dealers are hop
ing that Mr. Blease will win in order
that blind tigers over the State, espe
cially in the cities, may resume busi
ness. The return of blind tigers means
increased shipments of whiskey into
the State by the liquor dealers of other
Will your vote be on the side of the
racetrack gamblers and liquor dealers
or will it be on the side of continued
enforcement of the laws of the State?
We believe a majority of the people
of South Carolina stand for the con
tinued enforcement of the laws.

Benefactors of the Farm.
The young men on farms to-day j
have many worthy examples among
those who have devoted their lives
unselfishly to make farming more
profitable and home life more en- I
joyable. Here in the Southwest we
have many whose life work and
achievements for the men who toil
will live after them.
We have reached a time in our
civilization that we should not con
fine our examples of chai acter to
men in public life, to statesmen,
writers, warriors, etc. As a nation
that loves peace and prosperity we
should strive to emulate the worthy
characters that make life's burdens
easier. The men who make this
world a better place to live by
breeding plants and animals, those
who help the poor get homes and
give their lives for the education
and enlightenment of their fellow
citizens, should be honored.
We want our young men and our
young women to remember those
who make the soil more productive
and the people who live after them
to have more of the comforts and
conveniences of life.
We must live from the soil.
Those who till the soil must pro
duce the food and clothing for the
people of this country. Let those
who deserve it be honored. This
will be an incentive for young peo
ple to be "victors of peace" and ben
efactors of the farm.- Farm and

Card of Thanks.
I take this means of expressing
my profound appreciation for the
support given me in the past prima
ry, and to thank the people general
ly for their hearty welcome at every
turn of the campaign.
The expressions and experiences
of the campaign have been pleasing
as well as profitable, and unless an
unknown reason presents itself I
will be before the people again ask
ing their suffrage.
W. M. Wright.
Card of Thanks.
Please allow me space in your
paper to express to my neighbors
and friends my appreciation for the
vote I received in the recent prima
ry. Though defeated I am not the
least sore. My opponents all treated
me in a straightforward gentleman
ly way. My appreciation to the peo
ple for their kindness during the
campaign is beyond ray expression.
If I know my own heart I love
the people of Edgefield. Better peo
ple never lived.
James M. Bell.
Card of Thanks.
I wish to express my thanks to
the people of Edgefield couuty for
their consideration and many cour
tesies extended me during the cam
pain. I have been informed since 1
the election that the Blease issue 1
was used against rae, it being said '
that I was a Blease man. This was .
a mistake, as I am not and never .
have been. However, I am not one
of those who think it a reflection
on a man's character to be a Blease '
man. This is a free country and
every one has a right to vole for the
m*n of his choice. I supported
Cooper in the first election and will
now support Manning.
