Mr. August Kohn, Hie versatile Co
t?mida corresponden! Of * 11 ? - News and
('.niiicr, writing under rocolil dale, gives
Iiis reasons tor ('?inking radical reform
?is demanded in i li. primary election ays*
tem throughout the Stdio. Ile oughl lo
know what IK; LS talking nhotll loi he luis
followed ami reported the Mate iain
paigns ever since Ihej were established,
There cati he no i|iicstion about the
disgust ami dissatisfaction \\ iih the pi i
mary system as at present in olVecl in
this State. There w i '. 1 have lo lie radi
cal changes in the system or it will go
to pieces. If il is kept up IIS at present
it ought to go into disrepute and obliv
ion. lt isa humbug ami a farce to have
candidates go around Ibo state abusing
oaeli other (?Md liol discuss issues, lim
ing the last campaign the speakers con
sumed seven long and weary bonis day
after day, and there was hui one song,
self or Ihpior. Thc campaigns have
been thought to be instituted fol' a dis
mission of political and industrial issues,
and not for abuse ami the discussion of
one issue. [)ay aller day the candidates
generally made the same Speeches, many
of them did not so much as chango the
dotting of au "i,' or the mossing of a
"t," and yet it is urged that this is a
a campaign of education, lt is mu so.
'These same speedie.; could liavC been
printed am1 circulated tin.nigh tin
mails, if the newspapers were md g.1
ty enough mediums, and have rondo d mon
voters interested, lt may be sai.I tba!
all voters cannot rend; that may be so
but those who do not read generally fol
low others who eau read, anyway, am
V. the proportion is small.
Ono great trouhlo is Hint substantial,
gund business men, snell as ought to ho
elected to ofliccs in tliis Slate, are not
coining oui for (.bices. Timi is generally
speaking, They are nat ni ally annoyed
bj tbe liumbug ol lite tedious campaign.
Tho) know that if they want a Stale
ellice, or even h county ofllco, they have
to plod along from stump to stump, and
in addition lo making the sacrifice of
Serving tho people, they have to lose
from two lo lliree months in canvassing
tho stale for a state oihce. This is valua
ble lime ti> a busbies man: it makes lit
tle di llei euee to the political hacks, who
h ive nothing else lo do. Then there is
the cost, which is never less than from
- '..?.' * tn ^ i1 ni for a Sta to campaign, not
counting the expenses of literature,
church funds ami tho like. Then, above
all, when a man nowadays goes Into a
state campaign for a stale ofllco Im has
to leave bis feelings behind and he will
ic to stand almost any amount of mud
I slinging, li .oes not follow that there
will heany truth in thc charges and in
sinuations, hut tho political atmosphere
seems to he such thal the greater the
number of opponents Um more the cer
tainty that some of the candidates will
th i ow mud against whomever maybe re
garded as the leading man, and if a nub?
slanted business man should cuter the
field would it liol be almost certain,
judging by precedent, that the ni nd -
slingers would get In their work against
The question tho business mau asks
himself, when he is approached to run,
say, tor Railroad Commissioner, is: Will
it pay to make snell a rac?? Will it pay
to have my character and reputation as
sailed by some irresponsible candidate
who bas Ihc protection of thc State com
mitten, and thon, with MM; questions and |
insinu?t inns, go down in defeat?
lt is the same way all along the line J
and the question now is, whether the
tendency is not for good, business men,
successful men, to keep out of thc politi
cal mess that sectus to he. so perennial in
this State, when it ought to he so differ
Tiler?! were about twenty-seven candi
dates this time for the various ollicos.
In the llOXt campaign there are likely to
be more, unless the opposing interests
liohl conventions and nominate full
State tickets, as has been indicated in
Senator Tillman's interview.
The general expectation is that there
? ill be a full line bf candidates for pretty
much every ellice in the State House, as
di of thc Incumbents, willi the excep
tion of ('apt. Jennings, will have served
LWo terms, and that generally means a
rull line of opposition, and with (hat
Kondition there is every reason to expect,
twice the number of candidates that,
were in the Held this year. Ami this
iloes not include thc array of candidates
that are sure to be after the Senatorial
toga of Senator Mel.antin,
Then, of course, there aro (he stock
candidates, such as Mr. Whit man, whose
chief virtue is that he can make a pretty,
good speech, Ile eau never gol over a
thousand votes, yet he can, ami does,
consume over half an hour at every cam
paign mooting,and would like very much
for the time limit, to be cul h ely re m o veil,
as he has superb lungs and eau never
lindi his celluloid collar.
One thing thc State ('on vent ion will
nave to do is to rostrlol tho campaign to
candidates for sut h offices; as will entitle
them if elected to have sonto inti nonce on
the policy of the State, and who ought
to discuss issues, and not allow a dozen
Candidatos to consume time ami "cuss"
eatdi other, when tho law prescribes their
linties and they have nothing to do willi
making or executing the laws.

MONEY IN PRIMARY ELECTIONS.
Rough Draft of an Act which Proposes to Fur
thor Purify in Primary Eloctlons.
To tho Editor of Tho Stato: During
thc rocont county campaign a groat deal
was sn id concerning tho use of money in
primary elections. Now that tho elec
tions uro over, tho timo is ripo for a
thoughtful and intolligont discussion of
tho subject, with tho view of scouring

Tho criminal codo of South Carolina,
Revised Statutes, 1803, Vol. 2, declares
tho buying or tho soiling of votes by
indirection or otherwise to bo a criminal
offon80. Tho oldest of thoso election
laws was passed in 18?l), yot^Jt is ?v re
markable fact that thero aro on record
no decisions of our Supreme Court con
struing any of thoso enactments, indi
cating that lhere liavo hoon few prosecu
tions, if any at all, for misconduct in
These criminal statutes aro intended
to regulato the conduct of tho candidate
and tho voter, bul no mention is made
of the middle man, tho "influential"
political henchman, who, for a consider
ation, undertaken to induce others to
vole for thc man whoso leg, as it wore,
he has so successfully pulled. It is bad
enough for a candidato to uso money un
lawfully, bul after all he is simply a vic
tim of circumstances; it is oven worso
for a voter to reccivo pay; thc hired pro
fessional henchman, however, reaches
the climax of political corruption, and is
the most dangerous element in modern
politics, lie is something new, and has
grown up iii recent years Uko a mush
room, as (ho natura1 -esultof tho mod
ern tendency in political lifo.
Our statutes on this subject aro noto
riously inolTootivo; they have been con
tinuously ignored. Possibly two-thirds
of the voting population do not even
know that such laws exist. After a care
ful s' idy of the matter it has occurred
to mo that perhaps hy making tho pen
ally for tl o violation of election laws
similar to thc penalty for a violation of
the dueling law, a better effect might bo
had. With this omi in view the follow
ing, culled in part from thu statutes of
various Slates, is suggested as a substi
tute for the. present statutes:
AN ACT lt HOC LATINO KM?CTIONS.
Any person who, with tho intent to
promote the election or nomination of
himself or any other person toan elective
or appointive of?lco:
1. Furnishes entertainment to tho

or agrees to compensate any person, for
procuring tho attendance of voters at
the polls of such election; or
.I. Contributing money for any pur
poses, other than for printing and circu
lating campaign literature, or conveying
voters to the polls, or music or rent of
halls, is guilty of a misdemeanor, and
shall for every such olVeiise, upon con
viction thereof, he deprived of tho right
of suffrage and bo disqualified fror, hold

ever, in tho Stato,and shall bo imprisonod

Any person, who directly or indirectly,
by himself, or through any other person:
I. Pays, lends or contributes, or offers
or promises to pay, lend or negotiate
any money or other valuable considera

other person, to induce such voter to

mary or general election or nomination,
for or against any particular proposition
submitted to voters, or on account of
such voter having voted or refrained
from voting for or against any particular
person or persons, or for or against any
proposition submitted to voters, or,
.J. fi. ! vanees or pays, or causes to bc
paid, any money or other valuable thing,
to or for the uso of any other person willi
the intent that the same, or any part
thereof, shall be used in bribery at any
election, or knowingly pays or causes to
be paid ?1113' money or valuable thing to
any person in discharge or repayment of
any money, wholly, or in part expended
in bribery at any election, is guilty of a
misdemeanor, and shall pay for every
such offenso, upon conviction thereof, be
deprived of the right of suffrage, and bo
disqualified from holding any lillico of
honor or trust whatever in this State,
etc., etc., eic.
A n v person, who, directly or Indirectly,
by himself or through any other person:
1. Receives, agrees or contracts for,
before or during any general or primary
election or nomination, any gift, money,
loan or other valuable consideration, for

account of himself or any other person
having ...ted or refrained from voting
for or against any particular person or

tion or nomination, or for or against any
proposition submitted to velors at such
elect ion, or on account of having induced
any person or persons to vote for or
against any particular person al such
election or nomination, or for or against
any particular person at such election
or nominal ?on, or for or against any pro
position submit ted lo voters at such elec
tion, is guilty of a misdemeanor, and
shall for every such olfonsc, on convic
tion thereof be deprived of tho right to
vote, etc., etc., etc.
:'>. A person offending against any pro
vision of the foregoing sections or
against any other election law, is a com
petent witness against another person
offending against, any of said provisions
or other laws, and may be compelled to
testify on ?my trial, hearing or proceed
ing, or investigation in tho saiuo mau
nor ns nuy other poison. Tho testimony
so given shall not ho usod in any prose
OUtion or proceeding, civil or criminal,
against tho porson testifying. A poison
so testifying shall not ho Hablo to indict
ment, prosecution or punishment for the
offense with reference to whioh his testi
mony was given, and may plead or provo
tho giving of such testimony accordingly,
in har of such indiotmontor prosecution.
For a violation of any of tho provis
ions of such an net tho offondor would
bo forever disbarred from oflico and for
ever deprived of tho right to voto. It
would touch a soro spot; it would ap
peal to a tender yearning, and destroy
a valued privilcgo, dear to tho heart of
ovory citizen. Such a provision, aided
by a growth of wholesome public senti
ment, has forever destroyed dueling in
South Carolina. Could not tho regen
eration of polities be effected in a similar
With tho exception of the ponai ty fea
turo similar statutes aro in force, hut
not enforced in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Now York and other
States. Like our laws those statutes aro
altogether iuoffoctlvo, and aro practically
null and void.
lt will bo furthor obsorvod that a por
son giving evidence in a prosecution
would bo freo from punishment. This is
also a decided improvement on tho pros
ont law. Tho merits of such a provision
aro too obvious for discussion.
In addition to tho provisions abovo
named it might also bo provided that
each voter, as he presonts himself at tho
jadis, be required to swear that ho has
not received pay for his voto. Thc
pledge of candidates might, ho amended
so as to include a promise to usu only a
certain amount of money, and not for
illegitimate purposes. Such provisions
aro most too harsh, perhaps, but would
certainly he effective. A man wotiid
hesitate a good deal boforo stultifying
himself, for the violation of an oath is
dishonorable, and honor is a quality less
elastic than honesty.
It is a woll known principio that ig
norance of the law excuses no ono. Hut
waiving this, tho Legislature, with a ton
dor regard for the frailties of and ignor
atio?) of human nature, might require tho
publication of election laws in a news
paper of each county for several weeks
preceding each olootion, so as to warn
against misconduct tlioso few who do
not happen to bc hampered by such ti
thing as honor. However, thc dema
gogue would consider such a schomo too
Sumo might argue that matters of this
kind aro beyond tho ken of legislators,
and must be regulated by tho Democra
tic party. Hut this is a mistake. Tho
Stato through tho Oenoral Assembly has
as much right to suppress criminality in
politics as sho has to guarantee personal
liberty to every law-abiding citizen. Tho
courts have frequently taken cognizance
of primary elections. Tho constitution
ality of such provisions could not bo
Tho evils of tho day are tho result of
political corruption in 18*70, which was
then rogardod as a necessity. Hut tho
necessity no longer exists, and wo aro
now reaping tho whirlwind. In tho
light of thc present day it is decidedly
questionable whether the expedients of
tho past were j US ti Hod.
Hut South Carolina is not alone in this
matter; by an examination of legal au
thorities in other States, it will bo found
thai prosecutions for criminal offenses
under election laws have been remarka
bly few. In Canada and F.ngland, how
ever, the courts have been very active.
In F.ngland a candidate is spoken of as
"standing" foran office; in tho United
States ho "runs," and if ho expects to
get. on the band-wagon must run swiftly
and scatter money as ho goes, lu the
palmy days of Homo tho path of the can
didato was strewn by others with Howers, j t
hut thc modern Cincinnutus must him- ! jj

not spring np full grown; it must ho
cared for and encouraged like a tender ? 11
plant, by suitable and effective legisla
tion, and by the gradual cultivation of a
wholesome public, sentiment among the
masses. There is no reason to be dis
couraged, and thine is every reason to

A drummer joined tho crowd of

waited patiently until the laugh (
jaused by tho last story had died

Irummer had only caught the last

Tho Horses Remembered Him.
YONKKKK, N. Y.-Jason Gillespie,
)f Wilson Valley, who was in this
oily yesterday, told an interesting
incident of the power 01' memory of
horses. "Seven years ago," he said,
'I sold a team of young horses that
I had raised. I had broken them
myself, had always been very kind
ind genlli' to them, and they gavo
avery evidence of affection for me,
whinnying when I approached their
stalls and rubbing their noses against
me and nipping al me lovingly when
I went near them. I was fond of
ibo animals myself, and hated to
part with them, but times were hard
und 1 couldn't alford to keep them.
I sold them to an over-the-mountain
man, and had forgotten all about
"Tho horses had not, however, for
gotten trio, for on Thursday I was in
i little town outside of Albany and
ivas tying my horse under an ad
joining shed when 1 heard a familiar
whinny, and felt a horse's head rub
tgaiust minc. Looking around I
saw thc team I had sold seven years
tgo, a little the worse for wear, but
still easily recognizable. Holli of
them were giving lillie whinnies of
pleasure, and lugging at their halters
is if anxious to give further proof of
heir delight at seeing me.
"There was no mistake about their
recognition of me, and when I rubbed
Lhcir noses and palled them they
li<\.ime, if anVthing, too demonstra
tive. ? rewarded them for their
memories by :i few bites of apple*
