principal surprise was the entry of Mr.
A. C. .tones, former Prohibition chair
man, as a candidato for thc Tinted
States .sonate, ti. Walt Whitmnn failed
to ante with his $r>(> because of his ina
bility lo raise the money, and conse
quently was not allowed to outer the
Qovornor McSwoouoy was tho first
speaker. He reviewed bis record ns
Governor, discussed the Impracticability
of prohibition and defended bis admin
istration of the dispensary law. The
Qovornor was well roooived und ut che
conclusion of his speech was e.hoorcd
Go) on ol Hoyt was roooived with warm
applause, but was not allowed lo make
his speech without continuous interrup
tions. Ile followed the general line of
his recent address to thc Prohibitionists
of the Stato, arguing against tho princi
ple of lin- State's engaging in the bqttor
business. Whoil bc closed be wns the
recipient of Howers and various pledges
Mi. A. ll. Patterson told bow be had
formerly hoon fl Prohibitionist : but had
boon convinced of the impracticability
of prohibition in the light of further ex
perience and had reformed, tlc charged
Gololiol Hoyt with favoring a coalatioa
between thc Prohibitionists and thc high
license crowd, and cited the position of
thc Columbia State on the question ns
proof. Ile then jumped on Qovornor
McSwooncy, charging him with d?robe
hm, nf duty in nol attempting to sur
press thc blind tiger business in (maries
t,m Inn actually conniving at violations

charge to thc effect that thc Qovornor is
a patron ot blind tigers, and claimed
?hat Hie Governoi was irving to suits!
tl i KO tin State press bj an unlawful use
ot the contingent fund for tho paynton!
ol subscriptions to countrypapors. The
(tovernoi denied that he was a patron of
blind tigers. Ile tohi Mr. Patterson
that ever j Qovornor from tlngood down
had subscribed for the county papors,
