Mr. Mann's Exit.

the county chairmen in passing. It i
not our rhee to defend them, but w
think the point Mr. Mann has mad
is not well grounded. Provision ha
been made for the candidates fo
congress to speak at the campaig
meeting here next Monday, and ou
understanding is that the same thin
has been done in the other counties i:
the Third district. Mr. Mann had al
the opportunities for addressing th
voters that any rea~'sonable man could
have asked. The trouble was that no
body wanted to hear him.
But what's the use? The weathe
is too hot to talk politcs, anyway.
Rev. Coke Mann has withdrawn fron
the race for congress in the Third dis
trict because, he says, the distric
Democratic committee would not ar
range a series cf campaign meeting
speak. The committe% deserves a
medal. There is nothing to stop Mann
from arranging his onw campaign and A
making as many speeches as he can
get people to listen to.-Spartanburg

Rural Telephone Development.
Walter Harper, staff correspondent
of the Birmingham Age Herald, writ
ing from Cuba, Ala., says: t
"The building of 61 miles of rural I
telephone lines to every section of the
country has done more perhaps than
any other one thing to improve the y
general condition of the people andl,
make the growing of truck and farm I
r products profitable. The system is,(
f complete in every respect and the ser- t
vice all that could be desired. The y
bank officials tell me that the rural
telephone system has done more than
any other one thing to increase indi
e vidual bank deposits and increase the
permanent prosperity of the people."

This would be a great convenience

Urges Blease For Governor.
Editor Herald and News: We nott
yith pleasure what Mr. Klettner ha!
to say in reference to Hon. Cole. L
Blease. I can truly voice the senti:
ment. I have known Cole. from. his
childhood. He was a bright, friendl3
little boy, a smart school lad, and whc
can say that he is not today a brain3
man-yes, a very live man, quick to see
and to act, and as true to his friends
as his father before him, and he was
as true as the needle to the pole. Anc
why should not all the people be the
governor's friend? Yes, I endorsE
Cole. L. Blease for governor not sim
ply because he is my friend, but be
cause we need a live man, a man jusi
like Cole. Blease, who can see and acd
and agitate. The best of cream set tc
churn will never make butter withoul
agitation, but will become stale, just
as our government will be unless you
have a live man at the head. Why ]
was talking some time since to a man
who I tIhought was pretty 'well in
formed. When in conversation he
mentioned Gov. Anderson, Gov. Ander
son, severaI times. I said, my friend,
you mean Gov. Ansel. Oh, yes, hE
said. I had forgotten his name. You
people forget his name. Not so with
Blease. As governor he will be doing
something and saying something to
the point of your interest, that you will
not forget the name Cole. L. Blease,
governor of the State of South .Caro
Voters, remember this day of elec
tion. If you are a little sore because
Cole. has sometime won a case against
you, just ask yourself how you would
vote if you had been the other fellow.
You see now you only needed Cole. on
your side in that case and then you
can readily see how we need him on
all sides for governor.

chosen by the convention.
For governor there are three candi
