I have hung my head when I have

cause of South Carolina being so de

'If you could have gone to the
various states that I have visited and
where I have -had to say ''I am fron
South Carolina and am investigating
the dispensary, you would have heard
them reply, 'Ugh! That rotter
thing I' We should hang our heads in
shame until we are rid of this rotten
thing. I tell you the state dispensary
is like a monster serpent that ha
wound it coils about the state of
South Cjirolina and is crushing out'it'
''Our friends that you have-heard
speak here today say we should tam<
this serpent. 'Let us draw its fangs,
they say. 'Let us loosen its coils.
They may draw its fangs and they
may loosen its coils, but the nature of
the serpent will remain there still ani

fellow citizens, to the head of this ser

They ask you what will we havi
instead. I could point you to a num

The snext speaker was Hon. 0. B
Martin. who has no opposition-for re
I eleetion as state superintendent o
- education. He said it was a seriou
iimomeift when he' heard that he' ha(
been elected state superintendent o
education. He would rather give a]
of the people some of the educatioi

the educatiOn. Mr. Martin 'said h4

he did not stand soon enough. Bui
this year Mr. Wharton will we role

Capt. J. C. Sellers, of Marion, th4
next speaker, stated that the positioi
had been Inuch sought after the be
lief appearing to be that this was f
job in which there was nothing to d<
and.the secretary does all of the work
But there is work to do and he is will

his friend, Wharton, would offer fo
re-election when the precedent ha
been established in the 10 years o
this office that no commissioner shoul
succeed himself. H. R.. Thomas, De
Witt Evans, Wilborn and Garris ha<
all been defeated and they wer
strong men, too.
Mr. J. M. Sullivan of Andersoi
stated that this connection with pol
ities commenced in 1895, when lie wa,
sent to the constitutional convention
Since then lie had been a member o
the legislature and has just declince
re-elee!tion to the ome of mayor of th
e*tv of Anderson. The railroad com.
missioiner'.s office should be filled by r
business man for there is no, othe
part of the state goverinment which s<
(losely applies to the merchants a
this cfilee. He related a numbner o
matters in -which there arc discrimi
nation in rates. He would not attac1
the railroads, but they are able ti

need represntation. He charged tha

The next speaker was Mr. J. A

that thme railroad comnussmon is n<

elected on that commission who know

not one who knows anything abou

roads. His platform is ' 'safe roadls.'

should rather have safe roadls. Hei

Mr. Lumpkin Speaks.
The last speakem' of the (lay was
Mir. W. W. Lumpkin, canididate fo:
thme United States senate. He conh(
not mako his r'egular' speech, as hi
wants' Senator Tillman present t<
hear it, but lie had a hard time tb
make any sort of spech at all. Whei
lie was first introduced by Senatoi

making friends with the crowd. He
I deeired that he stands for the toilers.
I He jjad worked on the railroad, he
had worked on the farm, and lie feels
a great sympathy for the laboring man.
His platform is:

made an eloquent reference to the
Confederate soldier and told how he
and his interruptor had fought under

caught the fancy of the crowd and
many of them cheered him. Mr.
Lumpkin then concluded and walking
down from the stand accosted the old
soldier who had been teasifg him so.
Mr. Lumpkin gives positive assurance
that this old sckldier has now pledged
his vote to Lumpkin.
