Get Good Magistrates.
(Columbia Record.)
No public oftice is inconsequential.
No pu' lie office is without its respon
sibilities. Tho measure of their re
sponsibility is largely the amount of
personal contact between the olllcial
and tho public. Por example, take
the office of magistrate. There is no
position that affords more opportu
nity for making good citizens out of
bad QUOS, or of making disgruntled
oittsf?t?s but bf c?ttfelted Ones. ;
There is no office in tho Stn le in
which the people" should exercise
moro care in the selection of men. lt
is not so important Gmt the magis
trate should know law, although be
should know some law or somewhat
of the processes of the law. Hut tho
principal essential Qualification
should bc common sense. Chief above
all ol' tho requisites of tho ellice of
magistrale 18-C H ARA C TER. .
Look over all the candidates care
fully, in all the counties, for magis
terial responsibilities in the State.
See thal the men chosen are depend
able. There is no telling what con
ditions may arise, and honest, trust
worthy and fearless magistrales can
be of great, service in keeping tho
people of the State in good humor
and within tho hounds ot' tho law.

Thousand in Homo County.
Mr. MoCravy, yesterday at Bick
ens, discussed cotton futures and im
migration, and declared that the
price of cotton was often depressed
by excessive gambling on the stock
market, and the farmers and people
of the South were caused to lose mil
lions of dollars. Ho said that ho was
not running on the sins of Mr. Domi
nick, hut that he had tho right to
deal with his record, for that ls pub
lic property. Ho took Mr. Dominick
to task for what ho terms his incon
sistency in his opposition to tho ag
ricultural bloc, which ls a non-par
tisan organization of Senators from
the South and West. Ho said that
Mr. Dominick was trying to make
the impression on the minds of the
people that this agricultural vbloc
was a high tariff organization, and
said that Mr. Dominick was in error
when ho undertook lo make such
impressions, and asked his audience
If tiley bolioved that the Senators
from Georgia, South Carolina and
other Southern States would bolong
to an organization like that? He
stated that tho farm bloc .was tho
only organization that had sought to
do anything to relieve this financial
depression. Ile also lanibastod Mr.
Dominick for having lils brother,
Harry, on the Congressional pay
roll, and said that his information is
that Mr. Harry Dominick runs an oil
mill at Newberry and doos nothing
for the government in return for tho
salary ho draws. He closed amid
great applause and an ovation was
given him.

Crowd W?M Present.
, -
According to schedule, tho Stato
candidates reached Walhalla Mon
day morning and prosented (their
claims bofore an audionco of approx
imately twelve hundred peoplo at
tho High School Auditorium. Tho
weather was lino, wator plontlful,
candidates generally in good humor,
and the crowd reasonably patient.
There wore two very gratifying fon
tures-a largo number of ladies wero
present, and if there was any disor
der of any kind, wo have not hoard
of lt. Murrah for Oconeo county!
Tho Fun Bogies.
At lu o'clock County Chairman J.
M. Drown, in his usual happy man
ner called tho meeting to order and
requested all spitters, if such should
he present, to walt until thoy got
outside to go into action, but what
ever they did, not to ruin tho floor.
Ho then proceoded to introduco tho
speakers, lu tho order provided by
their program. Thoro wore so many
of them, that wo aro unable to glvo
even a synopsis of their remarks in
dividually. All expressed a sincere
desire to reduco taxes, but offered no
specific remedy, oxcopt in a yory
goneral way. When the campaign
has boen finished tho pooplo of tho
State should bo thoroughly informed
ns to our appropriations and oxpon
ditures, schools and colleges, roads
and brldgos, soldiers and sailors,
convicts and ox-convicts, paroles and
non-paroles, thoso that aro patriotic
and thoso that are not, and ono or
two other subjects that happened to
pop into tho minda of the candidates
as thoy wandered around ?in the
fields of their fortilo imaginations,
for we have boon told positlvoly by .
one candidate that certain things
aro true, and by another, In just as
convincing terms, that tho roverse is
true. So what's a poor clltzon and
ordinary mortal, not endowed with
tho wisdom, foresight and hindsight
of a candidate for political profef
mont, to do, after all?
We aro at least familiar with "tho
systom" and tho "Coluinbin canal,
matter!'--whatever they ;>ere^.-j^tUU.
we are satisfied that tho safety br
tho Stale depends upon their f*Sr%
root manipulation.
We were pleased to note one dif
ference between some candidates and
the boll weevil. The boll weevil bores
tho cotton ami the candidate boros
tho voter, but both will survive un
der proper treatment-that is, tito
cotton and tho voter.
We wore glad to note that all Hie
candidates all favor appropriations
for education, especially in the com
mon schools, for good roads, and for
tho old soldiers. Tho> ire to be
commended for this. Then too, wo
learned that they favor \k\\ enforce
ment. That IS linc, and wo hope that
they practice, what they preach.
Tho audience was apparently very
sympathetic and was quite generous
in encouraging tho poverttl speakers
by liberal applause. The ladies in
the race for Superintendent of Edu
cation seemed to loud spirit,- and
?pico and variety to tho program and
mndo numerous friends among their
hearers, lt might bo woll to men
tion tho controversy bclweon two of
tho ladies as to whether an Oldsmo
bile ls a limousine, or vice versa, and
whether it ls really ' proper or Im
proper for lady candidates to attend
tho political meetings over tho Stato
in Oldsmozlnes or limobllos, But wo
have failed to find out just what
bearing tho question has upon tho
educational system of South Carolina
and tho welfaro of our children. Mi,
ho! What next?
The anecdotes and illustrations
rangod all tho way from tho sublimo
to the ridiculous-some good, somo
not, some now, many stale, but most
of them ?had tho desired effect, and
drew good laughs. Tho audience was
In a laughing humor any way, and
most anything amused them so that
thoy would smile aloud now and
then.
To tho clone observer lt was very
easy to seo who the favoritos were
with tho "crowd. That pleased tho
favored ono and scorned to put "pop"
Into tho others, so lt mado a mighty
fino gathering.
After sitting for flvo and a half
hours and listening to tho pleas of
tho several candidates tho audience
Eidjoruncd in as good humor as they
carno, and all agreed that lt was ibo
finest campaign meeting that has
over boon held In Oconoo.
Wo are betting on tho winnors, so
go to it, boys!
And Just a final word to the vol
ers of Oconoo county: If you at
tended thc campaign mooting you
probably know as much-or ns lit
tle-as to tho goneral fitness of tho
several candidates for tho offices thoy
seek to fill. Thoro is one safeguard
that each of us can tako refuge bo
hind. That is tho individual conscl
snce. Let us take the next r the
casting of the ballot-with ?rl
Dusnoss, consider ns best wo c. . tho
roal man and tho real woman that
