Colunbia. November 11.-The race
for the seat in the United States
Senate. now oceupied by the Hon.
Asbury C. Latimer. will ro.t be with
out interes.t. S: iat e s'uperinitendent of
Ediation Martin will be a candidate.
Mr. Martin made the announcement
to day in a characteristic statement.

"It is clear to me tbaLt I could be
. -of rvi-ce in the senate. Mv ex
-perience as a school officer can be
turned to good account. There are
-several bills pending in congress now
lookin<, to the aid and eneoura(V
ement of anriculfural. n ,ormal and in
.duial educatIion. Ihave a spea
ing aequaintCane with every state
-school sv--tem i:! the 1United SI ats.
I also' know~ se4ce e -arj:"na! leaders
and prmt-(tars in all p its o ou
couitry. This knowledgIe c(uld eaz
ilv -b)e extended to countries' abroad.
If would be a pleasure to' place my
* services at the disposal of school of
fieers to assist in the further develop
ment of our school-s. [ do not like to
make campaign pr-omises, but I he
.lieve that I could do so muc'h work
~in this line alone, that it certainly
-would not be diecessary for the people
--in our neighboring states to ask 'Who
is the other senator from South Car
;olina?' Furthermore I have been a
istudent of governments and govern
:mental affairs since I was old enough
-to read the county papers. I .am not
-unmindful of South Carolina's great
part in the history of our country.
"Nearly sixteen years ago, when I
had but recently passed my majority.
*I attended-a political pow-wow in my
home county of Pickens. and heard
our pr-esent junior senator mak-e some
p romnises in his first r-ace for congress.
H~ *.:as elec-ted. For- neairly half a
generatio I have been watching 1his
reed rd. I believe the P'-opl
a:e aat:-ti pepa red to wriite. at lea:st
under the Sena torial part thereof,
* 'ene. mene. tekel. uphars2n.' He
seen:s diAposed to. h ase his present
-eampa.ign upon futures. T'he people
-prefer spots. He annonees a plat
form opposed to injurious immigra
i'on. All po:ssible and probable can
didates have been, are now. and will
hereafter be opposed to the same
thing. It is not enough to have a
merely negative platform. I have
n1ought all along that if the frugal
a nd thirfty farmers and laborers of
Mfinnesota, Wisconsin,. Michigan and
the Dakotbas knew t-hat they could se
cure land as rich as the praiis for
-ons-fourth of what they could get for
their own l:w'd that they would comne
here instead of going to Canada.
Many of these people came fro-m
Norther-n Europe less than tell years
ag~o. They know our langzuage and
customs. If we had secured five hun
.dr-ed of thlese people they would make
a drawing nucleus for,the best Euro
:ea-n immfligration. They would also
make five h'ndr-ed first-class interpre
-ers. I do not see how immigrants
ea h handled without numerous mn
Twrpreteris. I believe the Honmewood
colony in Horr.y county an~d the Lake
Charles set tlement in Louisiana point
the way to the ultimate solution of
-the immigrationl pr-oblem. But the
-question to he settled in the senator
ial campaigtn is whether the present
junior senator will give up his bi
furcated residence in Mexico and
Washington and immigrate to his vast
estates in the grand old county of As

is still in the pron:issory state, is

Ano ther futuritv is 'drainage
but the ques..i-a naturahy ariseS
whether it is drainage of t. ; swam-ps
or dral-age of the treasury.
"Of oourse, I am aware that t'ae
present governor has manifested
synptoms of senlatorial aspirationa. I
do not know whetre lie will run or not,
but it then I shall have better oppor
tunity to pr( -. cogent reasoning,
face to face, than I had when he was
coIIsiderintg appointments vital to
the department of education. Having
injected politics into the educational
deiartlenit. 1he- ourirt not to be sur
LisIed to met the head of that de
i poliies. if he decides to
eiler tile race Iifr dhe Inited States
senaie I shall meet him at Phillipi.'
Mr. Martin is evidently prepared
0% consider t recor.d of Senator La
t.ia1er when they meet oin the stump.
Ile will take iie position that the
senator is fighting a man of straw in
Is in)migration pronouncements, and
he hint.s of sthin2 iteresting ill
regzard to c!pper and Mexico.
Mr. 1hartin's challenge to Gover
nor Ansel to meet him in the race for
the senate also shows his deter-mina
tion to force the fighting from the
Wh 'M 31r. M,arin annouMCed sev
cral weeks aNo that he would not b2
he it I'Io verlor A1n
-el for a seceond term. It appears,
however. that Mr. Martin expects
to oppose the governor as a candi
date for the senate.
Mr. Martin was elected superin
tendent of education in 1902, and has
pot since that time had opposition
for the office, being re-elected in 1904
and 1906. Previous to his election as
tate superintendent, he was engaged
in teaching having been principal of
one1 (f the Greenville Lraded schools.

the home cuntLies of Ansel. If these
three are in the senatorial race to
geth:er. it will be a fhtorthe heavy
Piedmont vote. Mr. Martin will not
allow the fiz'ht to be dull since he is
,n excellent stump speaker, has a
large aequaintance ana is a good or
Mr. Martin 's announcement is not
the first formal annou:ncemaent of a
candidacy for the seat occupied by
Senator Latimer. and curiously
enough the other previously announc
ed .eandidate is also an educator
Col. John J. Dargan, of iStateburg. It
should be a campaign of education
with thlese two geatlemen to enlight
en the voters as to the past glories
and the future prospects of South
Carolina. Besides Senator La timer,
Messrs. Dargan and Martin are the
on!v- formally announced candidate:.
irit i s understcodt.hilat the Hion. D.
S. Hlenderson. of Aiken, and Col.
0O Ir2e John1stoneQ. of Newberry, in
tend to ru.n. The name of Mr. C. C.
irs. of Barn~well, has also been put
fo,.yard as a po?ssible candidate and
there may be others.
.There are already tw~o oandidates
anonnKeed for the offiee of st-ate su
perintendent' of education. The first
ti annorfee was Mr. E. C. E!more,
county sup)erin tendent of education
of Spartanburg conmnty. Mr. Elmore
is .said to be an excellent official, is an
experienced campaigner and has a
large connection, not only in Spar
taiiburg. but in Richland and Char
'The other announced candid.ite is
Prof. S. R. Mellichamp, c.ounty super
intendent of education of Orangeburg
county. Prof. Mellichamp is one of
the best known edueators in the
state, and is a genutleman of tihe high
esi character and attainments. He is
a graduate of the College of Charles
ton and was a Confederate soldier.
THe taughlt in Orangeburg for several
e:s after the war, and was at one
timP principal of the preparatory de
part ment of Furmaa University,
were he made lasting friends of the
boys who ear::e under his instruction.
Retiring from that position after
eht years he returned to Orange
hurg. and was soon afterwards elect
ed county superintendent.
St rong pressure is being brought to
bear to induce Prof. W. H. Hand tM
enter the race~ for state superint?nd
et. Mr. Hand is now a membler of
the faculty of the Ujniverslty of
South Carolina and for him to be
conie superintendent of ediucatiou, ev
en without any campaign expenses,
would be a financial si Fhe, but
