of an alleged denunciation of Governor
Wooqrow Wilson by James R. Nugent,
chedrman of the Democratic State
o6mmittee, at a private dinner of poli

members of the committee drafted to

"Re's an ingrate and he's a liar. I mean

That was the toast offered laht night

The insult, according to thes%e off

give it dramatic value. Nugent's .ho3

and he has been outspoken in his se a

when, notified that Nugent was per
jiiusly active on the fioor of the as

NATIONAL CORN SHOW
FOR SOUTH CAROLINA
A . cP. Hamby Explains How Great
Exhibition Will Benefit the Whole
The National Coin Show will be
-held in Columbia in 1913. The bring
Ing of the corn show South Means:
much to the agricultural development'
of this State. Every county will be
asked to cooperate in the movement
omake the,expositionT a success. A.
P. Hamby, secretary of the Colum-,
cb-mbe f commee, will in-1
augurate a campaign within the next
several days to raise $40,000 as a
guarantee for the exposition.
Secretary Hamby on Thursday made
the following statement, embodying
the importance to the whole State of
having the exposition in the capital:
The editorial comments of the pa
pers all over the State on the pros.
pects of having the National Corn
show in Columbia in 1913 are most
gratifying, and especially so in that
they have considered it a State-wide
movement of State-wide importance,
and not a movement to "boost" Colum
bia. My conception of my duties, from
the first, was not confine" i the ad
vancement of Columbia alone, but to
bring about cooperation of all the
commercial organizations in the State,
to the end that all the cities and
towns within -its borders might bene
fit from the general advancement, at
the same time vying with each other
in a spirit of friendly rivalry.
The appended extracts from speech
es made by,me at different places in
the State will bear out the foregoing
and will serve to show the spirit in
which the Columbia cbamber of com
merce undertook to secure and finance
the National Corn show for 1913.
The indorsement of the Farmers
union of the National Corn show, and
Its appeal to the farmers of thie State
to aid in carrying it to a successful
conclusion, are- especially gratifying
to those in charge of tee movement,
who realize that the farmers are the
mainstay of Cie country and without
whom citiese and towns could not be
built or maintained.
With the assurance that the Nation
al Corn show will be iheld in South
Carolina in 1913, we must not be un
mindful of the necessity of Liaving the
roads of our State in the best possible
shape by January of that year, and
here it may not be amiss to call at
tention to the active work which is
being done, all of which has been or
ganized an,d vigorously pursued in
contemplation of the big event of 1913.
For one instance, the Charleston to
Asheville 300-mile road, which is to be
completed by August 17, giving not
-nly a model road the entire length of
te State, but serving as an incentive
to other sections of the State to fol
low the example, that, in the course
of time, thos~e prospective, desirable
settlers who attend-the National Corn
Show may be impressed with the fact
lnies for getting the farm products to
market at the least cost; for trans
poation affects evgrything we buy
or sell, everything we eat or wear; In
fact, everything we use in anly .Way,
except air, sunshiine and4, generally,
EQCjg been a close etudent of the
conldition2s of our State for the past
year I am positive that opportunity is
knockiget our door, and while every
pase of buisiness In the State will 111
tmtely benedt by .the holding1 of the
a?lonal Corn sh~ow here in 1913; and
while every agricultural 'section will
receive its full share of the advan
tages that will accrue thereby, it
seems a foregone conclusion that those
sections of the State that are blessed
with "the transportaion trinity"
road, rail and river, or highway, rail
way and waterway-will be more es
pecially benefited first; the other sec
tions none the less, but later.
I leave my station tomorrow for
Boston to attend the Asedciation of Ad
Clbs of America, where I shall seek~
ani opportunity to proclaim to the big
gest aggregation of the biigges) adver
tising men of -the world the a.gricultur
al and industrial possibilities of South
Caroina and the assurance of the Na
tional Corn show for January, ,1913.
since it has fallen to my lot to canvass
the State for the purpose of raising the
necessary guarantee for this show;
and as I shall not be back before Au
gust 7 I appeal to the papers of the
State to assist me in my work. by
bringing this matter befone their read
es, showing clearly the benefit that
this -exposition will be to them, as
well as the magnitude of the under
taking, that I may accomplish my task
the easier and more quickly.
