Toyars agohaen ppearned the

vice in the house of representatives,
and am now serving my fourteenth
year on the State Democratic execu
tive committee. In the race for gov
ernor two years ago I received a ma
jority of the votes in the town of New
berry and in the county of Newberry,
and in the surrounding counties of
Laurens, Saluda and Union, and in
that section of Lexington adjacent to
my home county. Where the people
know me best I received my largest
vote, and of that I am proud. As to
my success in my profession, the rec
ords in the office of the clerk of the
court at Newberry will show that my
name appears as attorney in nearly
all of the important criminal and civil
cases of the county. I have served the
State as speaker pro tem. of the house,
and as presidential elector twice, and
as a member of the State board of
canvassers for four years, and I beg
to refer you to those with whom I
have served as to the manner in which
I filled these positions and discharg
ed the duties thereof.
We are told today that conditions in
South Carolina demand a sound and
economical, but not penurious busi
ness administration, and it is true.
The financial questian is the greatest
issue which confronts our people. And
who was it that first called attention
to our, financial condition? Blease did
it on the floor of the senate, and
worked for a more economical govern
ment, and begged the senator4 to re
duce appropriatiois, iot to create u~9e'
less offices and to stop burdening the
people with taxation. In 1906 and
1908 I went on the stump all over this
State and begged the people to pay
more attention to their financial af
fairs, and did all in my power to make
the financial condition of our State the
principal issue in both those cam
paigns. But the politicians and cer
tain newspapers wanted to keep con
cealed the true conditions, so they
hollered "liquor, liquor," and hid the
facts, as far as possible, from the vot
ers. Now, since they can not keep
these conditions hid any longer, some
of them are yelling, "Let liquor alone,
and let's have a business campaign."
All right, that is wnat I have been
begging for, for years. and I am glad
Ito see that the people have at last
waked up to find that I was right, and
that they are now demanding what I

I fought the effort which was made
to keep thousands of our white peo

in the State convention I succeeded
in getting the committee to report un
favorably upon the resolution, and on
the floor of the convention I again
fought it, and the convention refused
to pass the resolution, and all white
men in South Carolina are yet free.
M: plntform zoriay is as follows:

3. Trial by jury for all persons ac
cused of crime, and enforcing the
judgment of courts founded upon the
verdicts of the juries.
4. Keeping forever separate the leg

however, doing its duty and endeav

"In my opinion, compulsory educa
tion at the hands of the State means
disrupting the home, for it dethrones
the authority of the parents and
places the paid agents of the State in
control of the children, and destroys
family government. Those agents
stand between the child and the par
ent. They represent the State. They
are not responsible to the parents.
They impress upon the minds of the
children the views of the State, and
virtually say, "We have taken you out
of bondage and made you free, we are
giving you what your unnatural par
ents would not give you-and no child
on earth can be subject to such In
fluences and teachings and escape Im

parental authority, and consequent
disrespect and ingratitude. Children
are too easily infected with the idea
that their parents owe them every
thing, while they owe them nothing in
return, and with the design and law of
God set at defiance, who can compass,
by the widest stretches of the most gi
gantic mind, the condition that will
follow? We desire to see the standard
of education raised In South Carolina;
we want every boy and girl In the
State to have every possible opportu
nity to gain for themselves the very
best and highest degree of equipment
for life, but we do not want it at the
cost of parental authority and the
peace of the home. Family govern
