relative to tc conversation with Mr.
Gai"iard and wvhat 'Mr. Wkindham said
he di not believe was when he asked
what Mr. Windham thought. I said:
Did he get mad?" He laughed and
sa:d: ''No. of course 1he (lidn't get

but I knew he would take it." He
didn't say, though, that he had taken
it. He said he would not have made
him the offer, but he knew he would
take it. Another party came up at
that time and the conversation was
changed. Before he told me anything
about it ,he said: "I am not telling
ve:- :his for publication." and I told
him would not publish it.
Mr. \\indham asked to be heard
and said: I wish to say in reference
to :he story Mr. Miller told in refer

Mr. Lyon: It is not a question of
what you believe. Mr. Windham.
You re here to state any facts you
ki.v in regard to this matter, but
not your opinion. If you have any
ac:s to contradict Mr. Miller it is
-?roper that you should do it.
Mr. \indham explained t:at Capt.

he .iai done wrong. and went on to

Could Not Enforce The Law.
Mr. W. M. Sanders was a member
-i the county board for six years.
He felt that he was defeated because
'e insisted on enforcing the law. He
thought that the desire was to get
men on the board who did not care
about enforcing the law. He brought
Mr. Miller's charges up and called
Mr. Windham's attention tc. the re
quest book feature. There seemed to
be no attention paid to the matter.
He made t1he motion twice. The sec
ond time he made the motion to have
the request books used he received
no second to his motion. and Mr. Mel
lett said (hat provision was tot car
r>d out eiscwhere and he would not
rat for it. He insisted on weekly
se: ements. as required by law. but
Hi was done about i:. The board
m-:- monthy :v o make set lements.
The :munty board met regularly to
c.rec:: ttp books and accounts. The
.connry~ hoard instructed the clerk to
-write' the state board about the en
~foicement of the law. but nothing
appears to have been done.
He asked Mr. Sanders if his broth
er was not offered a bribe to vote
for a certain party. Mr. Sanders was
riot a member of the board and it was
thm-'g<t that any' offer of Mr. Reardon
to his brother, if made, would be in
c mnetent. Mr. Lyon changed the
ouestion, and Mr. Sanders was then
as~ked: if his brother -!id no t com~ne to
6,:,, and te&i him there was a plan on
ft:o elect MIr. Rafiid di;spenser.
tn : is were (lone that Mr. Sanders
zould have a clerkship, and did riot
Mr. W. M. Sanders tell .his brother he
would never do this, and would re
sign if Mr. Raffield were elected over
hi:s protest. The committee decided
:his was incompetent and the question
was withdrawn by Mr. Lyon with
Talking about the bottle war 'he
tween Sumter and Mayesville, Mr.
Sanders said bottles were hauled there
by the wagon load. Wtnen Mr. Wind
ham and myself were appointed mem

Senator Manning's Reply.
Sta:e Senator Manning who came
in during Mir. Sander's evidence. rose
and asked to make a statement.
Mr. Fraser: Before Mr. Manning
begins his statement, as I am one ol
t-his delegation. I will step aside.
Ar. Manning: I am the state sen
ator from Sumter couny, and. of
c.urse. the elec-inn of members 'i
the board of control vests in the dele
gation. and as Mr Sanders has madc
this statement about the cause of hi
dcfeat. I feel it incumbent upon me
as one Of the delegation :o say that
I do not know what is the source tronm
which Mr. Sanders gets his informa
t,"n for the reason that the practice
among our delegation as long as I
have been in the legislature in the
mat:er of these elections, has been
that they are entirely secret Our rea
son was that we desired to be en
tirelv untrammelled and our position
has been that we desired always to
make the very best appointments
within our power. We thought it
best. therefore, not to give out the
reasons to the public, and so I con
tradict emphatically the statement
made that that was the cause of Mr.
Sanders' defeat. These elections by
the delegation are by ballot and
speaking for myself. I have always
felt a responsibility in these elections
in which my duty was to the county
I represented rather than to any in
dividual. I have felt that the best in
terests of the county required that
We should not consider only those
who applied for positions, but in some
cases we have gone outside and re
quested others to take the places.
As for the reason of Mr. Sander' de
feat. I will simply make the denial
that I was influenced in any way
x'iatso)ever by the reason stated by
:m. I knew nothing of his vote on
:he board. but t.here were other
things that I understood that made
me feel warranted in casting my vote
as I did. I don't think it is necessary
to go into those matters as they have
nothing to do with the investigation.
I wish to say most emphatically that
r Sanders' position on the board as
to request blanks, etc, did not actuate
me in casting my vote as I did.
Other Members of Delegation.
Col. Altamont Moses, of the house
elegation, was sworn and stated:

his, and was in this election of the
Mr. Joshn Clifton, of the house, was
worn and said: As Mr. Manning has
xplained, we adopted a rule of ex

others were applicants, the question

not care for the statement to go out

had called his attention to Mr. San

that he intended to rap the delega
