didate For Railroad Commissioner
and Has His SnhHt Well la Hand?
Ills Argoments Are Logical.
I come into this race for Railroad
Pomaii?sioner fresh from the people;
notas an officeholder, nor one who
bas aspired for State office heretofore.
t bare oever run for Stats office iu
South Carolina before this time, but
bay been contented to remain at
home, making a living as a private
citizen. All of my opponents in this
race, except two, are today office hold
ers and have held offices for many
years. When only 16 years old I left,
the farm in old Marion County and
entered Wofiord College, where 1 re
mained for four years under the train
ing of that venerable old gentleman,
I>r. James Carlisle. After that time
I took a two-years' law course at the
South Carolina College, and have
since been practicing law in the oity
of Columbia. While in those institu
tions I was not therein luxury, but
every dollar that I spent while at those
colleges I made myself. After Mr.
Cooper's death that Chrietian gentle
man, Gov. Ellerbe, made me his pri
vate secretary, and 1 served him faith
fully until his death. I have collect
ed and turned over to the Spanish
American War soldiers over twenty
thousand dollars, and have claims
now on file io Washington for $30,000
more which as yet are unpaid. I will
collect this amount sooner or later.
As to my opponents' personal or
private charaoter, I have nothing to
eay. I am not making this race on the
bad character of my opponents, but an
my own merit. If I cannot receive i t j
in this way, I do not care to have it.
The Railroad Commission of the
State of South Carolina .is more im
portant to the welfare of her citizens
than any other department of her gov
ernment. In the wise and equitable
management of our great avenues of
commerce lies- the secret of our pro
gresser our downfall. That commis
sion is charged with the duty of regu
lating, adjusting and enforcing our
laws relative to traffic and commerce.
They are a board of arbitrators be
tween the people and the corporators,
between labor and capital, between the
toilers of the sod and the opulent mil
lionaire. They are harnessed with
tbe power of meting out equity, and
fair dealing as between men and trusts.
Our laws have been wise, and all we
want is their proper execution. You,
tbe people, want nothing but "ustice
and equity?"equal rights to all and
special privileges to none."
You should have an equal footing
with the corporations, whioh you have
created. Why were they created?
Were they not given their powers by
the people that they might subserve
the necessities of the people? They
are a necessity. We could not do
without them. Yet, when they grew
so great as to defeat the very object, of
their creation, they must be restricted.
Corporations are powerful and thrifty
slaves, but they are oruel and tyranni
cal masters. They must not be per
mitted to use their powers to buildup
one man, and pull down his brother.
They must not strangle the life breath
from you while holding the oup of
plenty to your neighbor. What you
wan., what the people want, my friends
is to regulate these railroads, to tame
them like tho wild horse, and make
them split the middles true. They
will make you a better crop if you
take some of their wildnetes and ous
sednt-i-s out of them.
To do these things, you have orea
ted our Railroad Commission. This
couuuisriio'i has done much for. you,
but it has failed todomuoh. It should
be composed of men fitted by exper
ience, training and capaoity to meet
and 3olve the problems which arise.
Its members should represent every
phase of our citizenship. All farmers
won't do. All politicians won't do.
All lawyers or doctors won't do.. ?ut
h should have one farmer, to know
what the farmers want and it should
have one business man t> know wha&
the commercial interests need, and it
eertainly should have one lawyer,

The freight rates- are .presumed to

Promulgated by the railroads, under
jo direction of the Railroad Commis
ooD. My friend, A|r. Wilbourn, has
Jjrved t*o terms, eight years, on that
?"Omission, and is now running for a
~>rd term, whioh hv six years more.
j16 has received in salary for that of
ce about $2O..00O, and it is now time

jje eise. There are other men ic the

n there long enough to be perfeotly
^?har with the workings of the of
eei and he ought alBO to be able to
k j t0 you "*n* *k nab oeon ^one
, ??dly; why he has j allowed over
ages on freight rates; why he has
owed your claims, tied up for
tlve or fifteen months, when they
should be paid up, uuder the statute
law of the State within sixty days; j
why he has allowed the railroads to |
charge yju demurrage when your]
freight happens te remain at the dvi
Eot longer than you anticipated; why
e does not make the railroads pay its
customers demurrage when they prom
ised to ship you a carload of goods on
a certain date, and it is two weeks or
more after that time before you v get
them. "It is a poor rule that won't
work both ways."
Let me show you how unjust the
rates are?how we are robbed within
the borders of South Carolina : A
carload of hay, shipped from Augus
ta, Ga., to Orangeburg, S. C, costs
(23 freight, and the same oarload of
hay shipped from Jackson, S C, a
smaller station in the State, au J.near
er to OraDgcburg, the freight is $30.
Robins, 8. C, to Orangeburg, S. C,
is fifty-five miles, and the freight
charged a citizen of Oraugebnvg on a
oarload of hay from Robins to Orange
burg was $14.08. Jackson, S. .,
to Orangeburg, S. C, is 68 miles, and
the freight on a similar oat-load of hay
from Jackson to Orangeburg was $30 i
So you sec, Jaoksoo, 8. C, is only
thirteen miles further from Orange
burg than Robins, S. C, yet the rail
roads oharge you $15.92 for hauling it
only thirteen miles further.
It is eight times as far from Atlan
ta, Ga., to Monck's Corner as it is
fronj Charleston to the same point.
Yet the freight rate from Atlanta and
Charleston to Monck's Corner is about
the same. *
Augusts, Ga., merohants can sell
goods oheaper in Winnsbpro by 3 per
per cent than Columbia merchants can,
although Augusta is eighty miles fur
ther distant on the same line.
The freight ohsrges on a barrel of
flour from Columbia, the railroad hub
of the State, to Greenville, 130 miles
distant, is 41 cents, j Greenville can
buy flour in Cincinnati, Ohio, 800
mileB distant, and have it shipped for
58 cents. The railroads oarry the
flour over 600 miles for only 17 cents,
when it travels through other States.
The rate from the same point, Cincin
nati, to Sumter, a smaller place than
.Greenville, is 68 cents, though Sum
ter is the nearer.
It costs 75 per cent more to haul a
hundred pounds of fruit from Edge
field County to the capital of the
State than it costs to ship the same
package from Columbia to Baltimore,
seven times the distance.
Right here I wish to say a word as
to my friend Caughman, who is run
ning on what is known as the "Jim
Crow car" bill. This bill was intro
duced into the South Carolina Legis
lature four years before Mr. Caugh
man ever became a member of that
body; and if he did help to pass it, he
did no more than "ais duty, and should
have no more credit for it than the
other 163 members of that honorable
body who worked shoulder to shoulder
with him to aid its passage. I am
glad we have it. It is a good law, and
had I been a member of the Legisla
ture at that time I would have done all
in my power to have had it passed,
and any good citizen of the State/who
had the welfare of the good women of
the State of South Carolina at heart
would have done the same thing.
South Carolina manufacturers cow
consume 40 per cent more cotton than
is used in the State, but they can't
use their own cotton, beoause the
freight rates are teo high, and they
are compelled to go out to Mississippi
to get cotton to spin; and the South
Carolina farmers they can't sell to the
factories of their own State, beoause'
they can't ship it to them without
paying half again as much freight as
they would to ship it to Norfolk, Ya.,
and Savannah, Ga., and Wilmington,
N. C. And all of the wharves in old
Charleston are rotted down because
the railroads have passed upon her the
ban of high rateB. There ia not a
farmer in South Carolina who lives
more than fifty miles from Charleston,
who can ship his cotton to Charleston
any cheaper than to Savannah, G a.,
Wilmington, N. C, or Norfolk, Va.
Why is it? Beoause the interests of
the citizens of the State have not
been proteoted. The railroads have
Serpetrated these outrages upon onr
t?te under the very sanction of my
friend Mr. WHbourn, who has been
there for eight years, and who has had
the opportunity to adjust these
wrongs. Yet for eight years they
have existed, and now he trios to jus
tify himself before you and asks you
to elect him for the third term.
There is a keen popular distrust to
figures as arguments, for it has been
shown often that, with proper train
ing thej can be put through evolu
tions that are really acrobatic Ad
vocates of trusts can show to many
places of decimals that any increase
in the wages paid to workmen would
be prohibitive of dividends, and that
even the present rates are an exces
sive burden upon these great corpora
tions. Give any of these high officials
in railroad circles a pencil and paper
and ho will produoe forthwith an argu
ment for lower wages aod longer
hours that will be overwhelming, until
one supplies ,tho common knowledge
of arbitrary freight rates and inflated
capital stook. We do not want to op
press the railroads, but we do
not want them to charge the peo
ple suoh high freight rates as to pay
them dividends on watered oapital
stook. We are willing for them to
live and prosper, but at the st* a ? time,
let us live and prosper.
Traffio has greatly increased in
South Carolina within the last fow
years, and they can now afford to lowe
the freight rates, and yet make more
money.- We want better accommoda
tions, better depots. The farmers
want sheds built at the depots, so
that their fertilizers will not be
thrown out in the rain. Small towns
and places that have no competition
should not be made to pay enormous
freight rateB in order to let the
I freight rates . be lowered at competi
Aa long as oar local freight rates
are kept high, how can our home in
dustries expect to prosper? Oar
wholesale houses -can not compete
with those of Baltimore and Cincin
nati. Oar small manufactures are
stifled and driven out of bunincss on
this aooount. Why pay all these high
rates? Our consumers?you and I,
who have to buy; the masses of the
people have them to pay!
Now in conclusion, when yon go to
caat.vrur hallet... ?; kl?? 26th day of
August, in the primary, if you believe
that I am tho man that should be
elected railroad commissioner, I shall
appreciuc j your vote. If you think I

The Fatal Cattle Fever Dreaded in the
To the Editor of The State:
Cattle fever is the general name of a
disease among our osttle that the
stock raisers of this State are only too
familiar with, it occurs every summer
and fall and is known by several
names, the prinoipal being Southern
fever, Texas fever, Spleuetio fever,
Bed Water and Tick fever?Southern
fever because it originated only in the
southern States, Texas fever because
Texas is the greatest cattle .raising
State and the most southern, there
fore his more coses than any other
State; Red Water fever because of the
hemorrhages from the kidneys during
the last stages of the fever; Splenetio
fever because post moriems show the
sploea to he excessively enlarged and
discolored; Tiok fever because the
United States bureau of animal indus
try insists that the cattle tiok is re
sponsible for the disease.
The bureau has issued many bulle
tins and oited many instances to prove
its theory, but, unfortunately for the
southern osttle raiser, all treat of the
disease in the territory lying north
of the quarantine lino, and nearly all
the in?estigatioos of the bureau have
been confined to the territory affected
by the transmitted disease and not in
the territory of original infection.
We do not deny that the tick transmits
the disease to northern cattle in north
ern territory and to a certain extent
in southern territory, b?t the experi
ence of 12 years of close study in the
home of the disease proves to us that
the tiek is not responsible for the dis
ease in the southern States. The
writer has inspected many herds of
cattle iu this State and has found the
fever raging in herds that never car
ried a tiok. and, vice vena, has found
herds, every head.of which was cover
ed with ticks and fever never prevail
ed. In ooe herd of Chester county
the loss from fever each year for a
number of years Was from five to fif
teen head and there was not a single
tick to be found; a close study of this
herd was made, individual animals
were noted as they grazed and record
kept of where they grazed mostly; six
cows were noted as going to a certain
place in the pasture (pasture contain
ed about 300 acres) every morning and
grazing until satisfied, and these were
the first to contract the fever and had
the most violent attacks, three of them
dying. This -spot of about an sere in
extent was fenced out of the pasture
and not another case occurred that
year, 1890, nor has a case occurred in
that herd since, though -the same pas
ture is used year after year.
This led to the theory that the germ
was received from the soil and the
same measures of prevention have
been used dozens of times all over the
State and have not failed a single time
in 12 years. Herds that were visited
every year by the plague have been
free from it since the pasture was in
spected and tho poisonous spots fen
ced out, some herds carried ticks and
some did not, some havq them now
and some have not, but none have
The disease is more prevslent this j
year than usual and promises to be
come raging later in the summer and
fall unless conditions ohange mate
rially; the object of this article is to
bring to the attention of the stock
raisers of this State the faot that
nothing is being done by us or by the
government to lessen the losses or to
prevent the annual occurrence of the
fever. The governmentthas devoted
practically all efforts to the north
ern territory where the disease never
originates but is always transmitted
and has done very little, if anything,
for the south where the disease orig
inates but is transmitted to a very
limited degree. We find the north
ern cattle protected by a set of strin
gent quarantine laws whioh prevent
the northern movement of southern
oattle exoept during a-few certain
months; this is fair for the northern
cattle raisers, but it is most unfair to
the southern raisers for it leaves him
to the tender mercy of the fever with
out the knowledge of how to fight it
and at the same time shuts him out of
the northern markets and deprives
him ' of the benefits of the higher
prices to be obtained there.
v This is the only disease and the only
reason that prevents the south becom
ing a great oattle region, for we osn
pasture our osttle the year round and
raise more beef and ohesper beef than
sections that have to feed part of
every year, but our farmers hesitate
to invest their money in oattle when
each year sees hundreds of heads car
ried jbff by this plague and nothing
done to remedy the evil. This dis
ease can be stopped and we trust the
farmers and the stook raisers of this
State especially will unit? in demand
ing, through our representatives in
Washington that the government will
expend some of its energies in the in- !
footed districts and give us relief from
this disease, that we may raise, at
least, enough beef for home consump

A Funny Story.
A monologue artist once told this

wife ou the subject. "It's out of the
question. I haven't been to a ball in
"Bat you will go just to please
your wifey, dear," she persisted.
"I'm crazy about the ball. Just this
one time," and she completed his sub
jugation with a pleading kiss.
"I'll go," Mr. Bungle reluctantly
consented. "But it's the last time,
remember. I know I've outgrown ray
evening suit," he added as a forlorn
"Oh, never mind about that," bis
wife cheerfully responded. "That's
a smell matter. We oan make it fit,
I'm sare. I'll get it out this after
noon and have it pressed up nioely
and the creases put in ibe legs. Never
you mind about the evening suit."
"A small matter, eh. ' soliloquised
Mr. Bungle as she left the room.
"Yes, I guess she's about right on
that score. It's muoh too small, I
The evening suit was a little pre
vious, as a matter of faot. Mr. Bun
gle got red in the faoe when he tried to
bntton it about his rotund figure that
night. It fitted he to perfection when
he was married in it, but years had
passed since then, and he had taken on
several or more degrees of what our
French neighbors would term embon
point. Nevertheless, he managed to
get into it, and also managed, after
divers efforts, to y/aXk without swear
ing aloud at eaoh step.
Mrs. Bungle went into the spirit of
the ball very muoh after the fashion
of an experienced Bwimmer who goes
in for the first dive of the season. She
lost Mr. Bungle almost at the first quar
ter. He didn't mind that. In faot,
he was rather glad. That tight even
ing suit, etc., eto. He was soon com
fortably upright agaiust the wall
where he had no occasion to move
about, and he was content to stand
there and watch the rhythmic whirl
of the dancers as they glided by him.
Occasionally he caught glimpses of
Mrs. Bungle as she floated gaily in
the mazes of the dance. She would
toss him a reassuring nod or wave her
hand at him when she saw him fol
lowing her wistfully with his eyes as
if he wanted to go home, but gener
ously refrained from saying so. He
was pleased when he saw her un
mistakable enjoyment rf the occa
sion, and he bore his martyrdom with
as brave an air as he oould muster.
"Gome, have a smoke on the veran
da, Bungle," a friend suggested after
an interval of promenading by the
dancers. "Awfully hot in here, you
know. Let's get out."
"Sure I will," seid Mr. Bungle,
readily. "I should say it is hot in
here. I'm perspiring now, and I
haven't moved three steps since I

his handkerohief. It fell to the floor
as he attempted to draw it forth. His
friend made as.if to piok it up. So
did Bungle. He got in a great hurry
when he saw his friend abtut to reach
the handkerohief, andhemr.de a quiok
dive for it. He was sorry an instant
There was a ri-i-i-p-p-p as he stoop
ed and he knew the worst had happen
ed. Pale and trembling he straight
ened up against the wall again, forget
ting in his agitation to mob the per
spiration from his face.
"I?-I believe I won't go on the ver
andah, after all, old man," he explain
ed to his startled friend. "I see my
wife motioning for me and I must find
out what she wanto."
In truth Mrs. Bungle was making
frantic efforts at the other side of the
ball-room to attract Mr. Bungle's
attention. Evidently she had an ac
quaintance she wished to introduce.
But Mr. Bungle didn't care to meet
anyone just then. His reply to her
signals was a series of distress signals
of bis own. Finally she came over to
him. He leaned over in order that
his words should reaoh no ears but
"It's happened," he whispered.
And she knew the rest from the look
on his face.
A minute later he was sidestepping
along the wall towards a door, Mrs.
Bungle having already preceded him
into an angular room leading off from
"What if it is the ladies' dressing
room," Mrs. Bungle protested. "Tbey
are all danoing now and none will

er door over there. It opens into a
oloset, I presume, and if we hear any
one ooming you oan just hide in there.
Slip them off now, dear, and I'll have
them mended in a minute."
Mr. Bungle slipped them off. Mrs.
Bungle set to work with needle and
thread she had procured. She had
taken hardly ten stitches when the
music out in the ball-room stopped.
The dance was ended.
"I hear somo one coming !" gasped
Mr. Bungle. They're at the door!
"-here, there, in the oloset, quick!
And to assist him in his haste Mrs.
Boogie dropped the trousers she was
mending and shoved Mr. Bungle vio

She stood against the door as she
glanoed towards the entrance through
whioh several ladies oame in from the

in the look. She did not notioe that
the door she guarded was resounding
with blows from the other side and
she didn't appear to hoar the loud
voioe oalling her. She was only too
glad to get Mr. Bungle safely in that
oloset before the ladies came in.
Further than that she didn't care.
"Open ibis door!" Mr. Bungle's
voioe cried out above the anima

"Echoldinc! Open the door, Isa;!"
"I can't open the door, my dear,"
she finally expiai ted through the key

panels hard enough to break through.
