Only Thirty-five Voters Heard Can
didates in Newberry Yesterday
-The Saluda Meeting.
nly abat thirt--five vtcr at
e'd(ld the c CamIpaini meeting, held
n the curt housc here yesterday
IIIMrning, to give the candidate. for
1iit' -A :ie newS th circui: an
opp)rtunity to present their views.
Cmunty Chairman S. S. Cunningham
There arc only tw candidates in
he race. Col. 0. L. Schumpert. oi the
\ewhe:rry- bar. and Alr. R. A. Cooper.
f the Laurens bar.
Ihe first speaker was Col. Scilum
pert. He said therc were no issUC
a candidate for solicitor coll dis
clus. The candidate for solicitor
e, thve pele to vote for him as a
e:te .f'i. :r. as thei reprcsen
:L:e attrney general ;n his
CIrcit. %t-was a qtesticn almost en
tirely (o personal preference. Col.
Schumpert spoke of the importance
of the office and its high duties. say
ing the people must see to it that
they elect one learned in the law, one
of character, and one able to cope
with the members of the bar of the
different counties. In the conduct of
a case the sympathy of the members
of a bar was almost always with the
lawyer for the defense. and hence the
solicitor must be able not only to
take care of the state when opposed
by an individual lawyer, but he must
be able to cope with the combined
bar nf a county if need be. Col.
Schumpert referred to his experience
as solicitor of the old 7th circuit.
Mr. R. A. Cooper said the prosecut
ing officer of a circuit was one of the
most important officers of the state.
He had a great deal of power, and in
electing such an officer not only ex
perience at the bar should be taken
into consideration, but a man should
be chosen who would do his duty un
der any and all circumstances. Mr.
Cooper said he had for many years,
since he was a child. had the ambition
to be solicitor of his circuit. Col.
Schumpert had had the honor al
ready. He was sorry he was forcea
to make the race against. a Newberry
man, because the bar of Newberry
and the bar of Lauren:: had always
been close together.
The Remaining Meetings.
The candidates for solicitor will
speak in Laurens on March 15. From
Laurens they will go to Abbeville,
where a meeting is to be held on
March 17, and from Abbeville to
Greenwood on March 18. The first
primary occurs on March 21 and the
second prima-y, if a second primary
be necessary. on April 4. The gen
eral election t:akes place on April 1t.
It is hardly possible a second primary
wil! be necessary in this circuit, as
there are only two candidates.
The Saluda Meeting.
The canmpa:gn opened at Salnda on
Saturday. No thwithstanding the
threatening weather the meeting was
Nee by a. crowd( which numbered
probably be:'ween 250 and 300 peole.

A Delightful Occasion.
One of the most delightful and en
joyable entertainments of the season
was the luncheon given in honor of
Mrs. S. E. Turnipseed's 77th birth
day, on March io, by Col. and Mrs.
George Johnstone. There were twelve
invited gtuests. The oldest of the
guests was 77 years of age and none
was f'ounger than sixty. They were
the lifelong friends of Mrs. Turnip
The ti::'e was pas: ed ii: cheerful
cocnversationi and remninscenses of
the pbast :ntil Io'clock. when the
doors we're dIrawn and the guests
were invited into the dining room.
Th ahle was beautiful withi its ele
gant linen bro ught from Parjs and
with its exquisite flowers-carna
tions, hyacinths and violets-sent in
by loving friends.
After the refreshments were par
taken of and the presents were open
ed, each lady. beginning with the
hostess, made a wish for Mrs. Turnip
seed's happiness. Some of these
would be well worth recording, such
as. "May this be one of many redj
letter days set for you in the high
tides of the calendar," "May you re
ceive as much pleasure as you give
to others," e tc.
The sweetest feature of the occa
sion was the -arrival of little Troxelle,
the 3-months-old datughter of Mr. and
Mrs. R. D. Wright, brought in by
her parents, bearing.in her tiny hands
a bouquet of tiny flowers, which were
presented by p)ro~xy.
Just as the ladies wvere assembled in
the hall preparatory to leaving. the'
Rev. George A. Wright. Mrs. Tur
nip)seed's pastor, came in. and the day
was fittingly closed with prayer.
