CANDIDATES ADDRESS FAIR
CROWD OF VOTERS.
Personalities, Most of Them Pleasant,
Brighten Up Political Talk-Au
J. S. Reynolds in The State.
Yorkville, July 1.-The campaign
meeting here today was rather more
lively than the previous ones have
proved-personalities, most of them
not acrimonious but amusing, did
something to relieve the monotony of
continued repetition. The audience to
day, while fairly good, was rather un
demonstrative, the efforts of the can
didates eliciting little applause.
Among the contestants for adjutant
general, railroad commissioner and
governor little tilts developed to add
to the general gaiety.
B. B. Evans continued his attacks.
Among his statements w1as an allega
tion that Judge Prince had told Evans
that James Farnum's punishment had
been heavier had the judge known the
defendant was so wealthy a man.
The candidates speak at Winnsboro
The-meeting was opened with pray
er by the Rev. I. G. Murray, pastor of
the First Baptist church. W. B. Wil
son, Jr., county chairman, -- 'led.
Big Guns Last.
Again the candidates for governor
were put last, but the others were
shifted, the aspirants for adjutant
The first of these was Capt. J. M.
Richardson, who outlined his business
platform. .He would eliminate the of
fce from politics, he said. He criticiz
- ed. the s-election 6f!.the time for the
encampment of the Aiken company.
Lieut. Col. Chas. Newnham, the next
speapker, promised that,, if elected ad
Jutant general, he would see to it that
there was more economical adminis
tration than has been the ease. hereto
Col. W. W. Moore, next speaker, re
plied to Capt. Richardson, who made
a depreciatory remark about staff ap
pointments. Col. Moore also answered
Capt. Richardson's hint that Col.
Moore, if elected, would select a Cita
del cadet as his assistant. Col. Moore
said he would not select any man ex
cept a member of the militia.. He then
tokup the question of pay and time
of enlistment. He prQemised a careful
accounting of militia property.
For Railroad Commissioner.
* . Jas. Cansler, of Tirzah, opened for
railroad commissioner, with a good
natural speech, teeming with person
alities, especially about Cansler, and a
less degree, about his "undergrowth,"
those who oppose .him. He - did not
take up all his time turning the rem
nant over to his "undergrowth.'
1.McDuffie HIampton then urged
* ~ his claim 'to the office. He told of his
-boyhood training u1nder Col, Asbury
Coward. He promised faithful s- rvice
.of elected. He argued that there
should be a technical. expert on the
commissian. He made & plain stat e
ment of his qualifications for the office.
G. Heyward Mahon, the next speak
* er, asked for an ~impartial measure
ment of the candidates, regardless of
locality. He claimed to have been the
* chairman cotton picker of Abbeville
*when he was but a boy. He spoke bit
terly of freight rate diiscrinfination
against South Carolina.
He claimed the railroad committee
* and the legislature had failed to .do
their duty. He denounced th:e killing
of the five-mile break bill. He also
criticised the mileage book system
now used. Mr. Mahon became very
vigorous in word and gesture as his
Col. 0. C. Scarborough said he had
fought hard for a reduction in' fertiliz
er rates. That fight had ended, he
* said, in securing a 5 per cent. reduc
.tion. He took up some references to
the Pee Dee snatching up the gage of
-battle he replied, saying that his op
ponents were shooting at the flagship
-the leader-when they spoke of him.
He, too, criticised'~ the railroad com
mission, which, he said, had been con
* sidered a joke.
* E. W. Duvall opened for lieutenant
governor. He spoke for ecnonmical
administration. On the liquor ques
tion he spoke for local option.
* ~ C. A. Smith, who followed, also fa
vored economy. He cited his record as
teacher and business man. He has re
cently been approached, he said, on
the question of becoming president of
one of the coll-eges.
B. B. Evans, candidate for attorney
general, resumed his attack on J.
Fraser Lyon, alleging that Mr. Lyon
has proved incompetent and has been
derelict in his duty by making compro
mises with liquor dealers. He said that
the Chester cases were continued "by
consent" of the attorney general.
Mr. Lyon was not present.
Opens for Governor.
C. C. Featherstone, opening for gov
ernor, claimed to beg~ farmer like the
other "farmer" candidates. by proxy.
stroingly. Ht said Ille siX 'Vt Colli
ties could not dictate to the 3 dry
counties. Local option on liquor, he
said, is an unsound proposition. He
denounced the sale of liquor.
On financial matters Mr. Feather
stone next touched. He wants econ
omy. A raise in the assessments with
biennial sessions of the legislature
would prevent a deficit.
F. H. Hyatt, the next speaker, while
he said he was the thoroughbred pro
'-hibitionist, wished liquor kept out of
the campaign. He would have other
issues stressed. He told of his work
for the farmers-how he fought for
good roads, assisted in forming tha
Southern Cotton association, and en
couraging diversification farms.
"The sand-mud tax," te said, refer
ring to poor roads, "is the heaviest
in South Carolina." He urged good
Mr. Hyatt said better business
methods were needed in State offices.
While it would be a business sacrifice,
Mr. Hyatt said, neverthe'Fss he wished
to serve if the people want him.
Thos. G. McLeod, the next speaker,
opened with a plea for education
both higher and intermediate. His vote
on a tie in the senate, he said, passed
the high school bill, giving aid to
Agricultural education, ha said,
should be given in rural schools.
Taxation, he said, is a difficult prob
lem. Equalization of taxes aidd taxing
of tax-dodgers are the best means- of
remedy, he said.
Though no advocate of whiskey
drinking or of whickey selling, said
Mr. McLeod, he favors local option.
Mr. McLeod said he would grant few
or many pardons, just as his consci
John G. Richards, the next man
beard, announced that he was in fav
or of State-wide prohibition, although
liquor is -not the most important issue
of the campaign. He criticised one of
Mr. Featherstotne's jokes as accusingi
"our mothers" of being topers.
He said he has been -elected to every
office he ever asked for.
He alone, he said, was a real far
mer. Mr. Hyatt, he declared, did his
farming on the fifth floor - of the sky
Mr.~ Richards claimedl' credit for
much.work iri the initerest of schools.
He also said much of his services
to the farmers.
Equalization of taxation was anoth
er of his planks. He urges liberal
pensions for Confederate veterans.
Cole L. Blease spoke next. He said
b.e had waited two years .to deny a
report that he was a liquor house can
idate. This report he laid at the
dor of Rev. J. L. Harley.
More and better common schools is
r. Blease's educational slogan. He
pposes State-wide prohibition. He
laims that he will go into the second
John T, Duncan closed the meeting

ork the automobilist's well-knwn
"A friend of mine," he said, "visit
ed recently the automobile ward of ta
lunatic asylum. They have, you
know, automobile wards now.
"It was a large, airy room, and
along the wall were ranged some two
dozen cots; but of the inmates [not a~
trace was to be seen.
"'But where are thae inmates?" my
friend asked the physician.
''The inmates?' was the reply. 'Oh,
they're all here. They're under the
beds tiniring with the sprins."
