L M'CULLOUGH FOR SENATE.
Announces His Candidacy Together
With His Platform-Various
Greenville. Jaii. 20.-Joseph A.
MIcCuilough is a candidate for Unit
ed Gt,ates senate. He issued the
follow-inga this even-ing:
"To tha D)elocratie Voters of
Sutt h ('arolina:
"I have decided to enter the race
for the United States senate. subject
to the action of the Democratic pri
mary. I realize .how unsatisfactory
it is. :e'th to the candidate and to the
- vuer. for me to attmept. to oatline
pnythring in the nature of a plat
rform. for the reason that there are
so many (uestions with which a sen
ator of the United (States will have
o deal. that the voter will be r ire
largely governed by his opinion as to
the qualifica.t.ions of t(he candidate
than by any platform lhe' may an
"I believe that. Henry Watterson
tersely stated what should be the
ke.ynote in the coming Democratic
campaign, 'Back to the constitu'tion.'
"Given a man "s conception of
that document, and the respective
rights of the State and federal gov
ernments thereunder, and if 'he be
eonsisten,t. his position with refer
ence to almost all the other questions
coming before the national congress
for solution, can be predicted with
almost as absolute precision and ac
curacy as the position of a planet
1,000 years from now.
"As to t,he-construction of the con
stit:tion. I belong to the school of
calhoun and Jefferson. I believe
that an applicaition of that instru
ment. thus interpreted, would thave
permanently and in a satisfactory
manner adjust all the great questions
th;aat occupy the attention of the
American people. sueh as the tariff.
trusts. finances. taxation and the
rights of the States.
"I believe in immediate tariff re
ision and reciproeity. I believe in
opening American products to the
markets of the world and wolld
ather rely upon the natural law of
supply and demand to maintain
prices than the artificial expedients
of a p;rotective tariff.
"I believe in protecting the Amer
ie:mn laborer against a lower standard
of wvages and livri'ng through the in
flr'x of undesirable i.mmigration, and
--on the other hand I favor stimiulat
ing immigration of a desirable class.
Thiat is to say, men and women of
~sound body, of sound mind and of
soundi morals and who can become
*asily assimilated to Ame9 n eivihi
zation and who can help. asi in our

This I deemi to be essential to the

not intend to spend 'barrels of mon

it has been suggested that a eandi
date for the United States senatc
mu: do to be elected. I will not dc
this for two reasons. In ithe first
place I haven't it to spend, and i:i
the second place I think it more im
portant to the State that the indivi
dual -hould exercise his honest, con
scientious judgment without a,ny
sort. of interference or andue per
sua'sion. after investigating as thor
oughly as he. can the capacity and
clualificati(Ms of the various candi
dates than that I or anybody else
should occupy a seat in tdie United
States senate. If it has come to thi4
in South Carolina that it requires
the expenditure of a. large sum of
money for one to be elected to thE
United States senate. the sooner the
is demonstrated to the satisfac
tion of the people the Ibetter.
''I will not flood the voters of t:h2
State with leitters and literature of
all sorts. Of course, I want yom
support. if. after invest:igiation, you

"I have great confidence in the al
thimate judgement of the people as tc
all mi:ters submitt-ed to them, an3
although. as a circuit judge once said
in reference to our jury system. they
sometimes shot with a 'wabbling
g0un' nine cases out of ten they hi
the bull's eye.
"In conclusion. I believe that yor
will extend to each -and every one of
us who may enter the co:dtest, tha1
courtesy which Benjamin Fra.nklir
once suggested in a let ter- introducinu
an unknown: 'Do ;him all the good of
fies and show him a,1l the favor that
on further acquaintance you will fini
him to deserve.'
