proving, The representatives of the
poople in the House and in the Senate
no ionger fight the appropriations for
educational purposes, and while the
appropriations may at times appear
larger than the revenues of the State
would seem to warrant, there can be
no doubt that these representatives
are doing what they think will further
the best interests of the State, and
tbelr attitude towards the subject Is
a cause of greatest gratification. For
years, in the House and in tbe-Senate,
be has been in close touoh with the
at airs of the State, and while he does
not wonder at the howl raised at n
creased aproprlations, it must be re
membered that conditions have great
ly cnanged. The inequalities in tax
assessment are glaring. He favors the
carrying out of the recommendations
made by the finance committee in or
der to wipe our tbese inequalities.
He wards the people against the in
cipient tendency to corruption In
elections, which has recently mani
fested itself. It is to be regretted
that the liquor question should have
attained such prominence. There are
other matters worthier of attention.
He is not the ohamplon of whiskey,
but be is deeply Interested in the
moral welfare of the State. He is
not a srraddler and he will not seek'
to befog the public mir.d on any is
sue He does not advooate the dis
pensary as run in tl a past. Whether
the allegations of corruption and
Kraft In the dispensary are true or
uot, the people of Sout? Carolina will
not stand Tor even the suspicion of
?luoh things. Where there is so much
?moke there must be some lire, and
? he p. ople of tbi S&ate will not stand
fr>r the dlnpFDsaiy as it has been con
duct a If corruption and graft do
zist in v e dlspensaryj then it must
oe purgt d of the odium or else the
?hcle thing must go. Wipe the dls
p nsar out ana w:;at will you have
? ft? Men will have whiskey. Pub
lic sei liratnt does not warrant the
belief that prordbicion can be en
'oiced. He has studied the question
carefully, and h nelieves It can be
purged. Read the Raysor-Mannlng
?ill bil l you will find that it goes to
he root of the matter, the purchas
i g of the liquor. He does not be
? leve in local option. His reason for
?An will be given later. But that
fhce of Governor Is a purely exeou
ive (tflce and should be be made
Guver. ur he will enforce the law as it
stands on ?he statute books.
JOHN J. MCMAHAN,
r C ilumbia, tue next candidate for
G ivercor to address the audience,
prefaced his remarks with the state
ment that every man is his brother's
Keeper, and that it follows, therefore,
that every citizen should be alive to
his olvio duties. The scope of gov
ernment has been largely widened. It
is no longer confined to mere police
regulation. We are shocked as we
glance about us at the evidences of
corruption abroad in the land, both
within and without our State. When
we compare the conditions of today
with the conditions which obtained
in the past we must be ashamed and
surprised. Dispensary corruption, is
not the only corruption to be found
in South Carolina today. Our duty
is imperative to place only the best
and highest men in office. The pri
mary system 'is a great system, but
under it there has unfortunately
grown up the custom of magnifying
tbe duties of the candidate and mini
mizing the duties of tbe citizen. He
favors the improvement of the schools
and commends the establishment of
the State reformatory. He stand*
today for every educational reform
which he has ever advocated. He
urged the importance of the drainage
of the coastal region and advocated
the establishment of every county of
a model farm. Time does not permit
him to disouss the dispensary. Per
sonally he is opposed to the use of
liquor, but he doesn't believe prohibi
tion practicable. He favors the
Sta*e dispensary, but not the dispen
sary as it now exists. He would first
have it cleansed and the rascals in it
placed bebind prison bars.
The next candidate for Governor
to address tbe Democrats of Dor
abester was tbe Hon
JOHN T. SLOAN,
af Columbia. He was born in the
shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains,
it old Pendleton. He went in the
army at 16, and went through the
bloody campaigns of 1864 and 1S65,
In Virginia. He was captured at Ap
pomattox, and after tbe war he re
urned to Pendleton and went to
tschool there. In 1866 he entered
South Carolina College, from which
Institution he wai. graduated with
honors. He reviewed his services th
the city of his adoption, where he
has been engaged in the practice of
law for more than a f core of years.
He was a wearer of the red shirt in
the days of 1876. He reviewed his
record as Representative and Senator
from Richland County. He was par
ticularly proud of his services in
founding Clemson and Winthrop
Colleges and in the defence of the
Citadel and South Carolina College.
He was proud of his record as Lieu
tenant Governor. He has spent the
best days of his life In tbe service of
his State, and he believes himself en
titled to promotion to the Governor
ship. He wants to see a school house
on every hill and one In every valley
of the State. He is not a mere talker
for education. When the Methodist
Female College was built in Columbia
recently he gave them twenty acres
of land, today worth 82,000. He is
plainly and unequivocally for the dis
pensary. He believes it is now, and
that it always will be, the best solu
tion of the whiskey question. But,if
he is elected Governor he will purge
it from any corruption which may
now infest it. He doesn't believe
prohibition can be enforced and in
support of his belief he cited his per
sonal experiences in search of lemon
ade in Maine, and soda water in Kan
The Hon. T. 0. McLeod, the only
candidate for Lieutenant-Governor,
made a short speech outlining his pos
ition on various matters. He favors a
Messrs. R M. McCown, of Florence,
J. B. Morrison, of Charleston, L. M.
Ragln, of Clarendon, candidates for
Secretary of State, were on hand and
made short speeches.
Mr. J. Fr?ser Lyon, of Abbeville,
was the only candidate for Attorney*
General present. He went for tbe d's
pensary with gloves eff, and was fre
quently applauded by the anti-dispen
sary part of the audience.
Mr. L. G. Walker, of Grpenville,
candidate for Comptroller Ganeral,
was next Introduced and gave his
reasons why the people should vote
for him. Comptroller General Jones,
who Is a candidate for re-election, was
unable to be present on account of of
Col. Boyd, of Greenville, and Col.
Haskell, of Biohland, tbe two candi
dates for Adjutant and Inspector
General, next addressed the audience
and solicited their votes.
Hon. O. B. Martin, candidate for
Superintendent of Education, has no
opposition. He, therefore, contented
himself with telling two or three
capital stories and pledging anew his
devotion to the best interests of pub
lic education in tbe State. He favors,
the dispensary system because if tbe
8200,000 a year obtained by the schools
from this source are removed and
nothing is provided to take its place
the result will be little short of cal
Messrs. Jas. Oansler, of Lancaster,
Sellers, of Marion, J. M. Sullivan, of
Anderson, J. A. Summersault, of
Rlchland, and Col. J. H. Warton, the
incumbent, all candidates for railroad
commissioner, were introduced and
made short speeches.
Col. W barton was the last of the
candidates for State office and Chair
man Dennis announced as the last
Speaker of the day Col. W. W. Lump
kin, of Columbia, who is opposing
Senator Tlllman for eleotion to the
United States Senate. When Col.
Lumpkin came forward two or three
"wool bats" in different parts of the
audience started to cheering for Tlll
man. The crowd took up the call and
for some little time so great was the
noise that It was useless for the speak
er to attempt to make himself heard.
Col. Lumpkin bided bis time patient
ly, however, and when Chairman Den
nis bad finally succeeded in restoring
order he started right in to pay back
in his own coin the man who bad star
ed the oheering for Senator Tlllman.
