FRESH WATER MEETING x
IX JASPER COU>TY
Candidates Speak In Steady Downpour
V of Rain.?>*o Sensations to State
Ridgeland, Juiy iu.?tsauy uas a new
tooth. And there was considerable
stir, much noise and copious weeping
in the process. Which is to say that
the infant county, Jasper, had her first
State campaign meeting today; that
'feere was a due amount of yelling
and that the heavens wept throughout
the proceedings. Cutting teeth is a
painful process, but Jasper has cut a
"<k few already so that the ordeal today
was passed with reasonable fortitude
and satisfactory results. There was !
no feature to the meeting, except pos- i
sibly the fact that it was unquestionably
a Blease crowd. An unpleasant
feature was the thorough soaring that
almost everybody got; for the meeting

and the rain; it did rain until the last
speaker was concluding. Thee, it very
-considerately stopped. Gov. Blease
said be was glad it rained; his remark
did not meet universal approval. He
thought it was a good baptism for the
infant county, especially as it was be,

of the day was to have the dam
on a man's hat brim overflow and a

precipitated inside on'e collar. It was
a glorious day.
There were possibly two hundred
patriotic souls who braved the day's

Jasper is young yet and has no court
house; not even a jail. Verily a jail
would have been a comfort today ?
anywhere to hold the meeting. They
talked about gathering in the school

much talk was there, and such a flur

ry, that almost everybody was befuddled
about the place of meeting. One
pitiful sight today was that of four
newspaper reporters and two candidates,
rain-bedraggled and in unholy
mood, searching the town of Ridge
land and scouring the woods thereabouts
for a political meeting th-ay
heard was* about to be perpetrated.
After a time success crowned their
mighty efforts, and after a still greater
time the fresh water meeting opened,

The candidates were in lovely humor
leaving Beaufort early this morning,
but that was all spoiled by a
three-hours' wait at Yemassee, the
train for Ridgeland being two hours
and a half late, arriving here at 11.15.

agree on shortening their speeches a ,

rain, wet clothes, <mud and political
heat are not conducive to a good disposition.
Jones and Blease.
As suggested, Jasper rurnea out a
Blease audience today. However,
Judge Jones was listened to with
marked attention, and his arguments
were put forward with force. Goveinor
Blease got the yells; his "nigger"
platforms were crowded with rooters.

loudest cheering. But even in this the
applause was not so sontaneous. ThSvl
most ardent partisan can't really turn
himself loose on a day like this.
It was noticeable that Governor
Blease devoted more time today to his
accustomed tirade against the newspapers
than he has given in any place
thus far visited. It is a fact, that there
are fewer South Carolina papers read
in this county than in any other county
of the State, and it was evident that
the audience were not acquainted with
most of the subjects touched upon. The
governor was particularly severe upon
the editor of the Columbia State, apnlvine
to him names and epithets that
he has many times employe!, and hinting
at other charges that have not
been given direct utterauce on the
stump this year. At one point the governor
said: "Now, let's see if the news

Only indirectly did Governor Blease
refer .to his Charleston speoeh, about
which there has been such widespread
comment and which created such a
stir in that city. It was in the course
of his ebulitions about *he newspapers
in general that he said t'ae News anC
Courier had done him wrong in saying
he had threatened to place metro
politan police in Charleston if that
city voted for Jones; that he stood by
his statement as he had written it, but
that there was no threat in it, and he
did not intend one. He said today
that he meant if Charleston wanted'
metropolitan police he would try to
give it to her, and "in not uncertain

Governor Blease said someone had
said here today that he got $1,000 for j
helping make Jasper county. To that
person the governor applied a great,
ibig, unqualified "black-hearted, malicious
Judge Jones made his usual vigorous
speech, covering all the points
heretofore brought out. In the course
of his criticism of Governor Blease's
use of the pardoning power he warned
the people that, whether or not they
realized it now, it would take South
Carolina a quarter of a century to recover
from the baleful effects of the
loose idea as to crime, engendered during
the present administration. He
pleaded for a stricter regard for law as
against the doctrines preached by Gov- J
A Novel Speech.
The speech of Mr. Barnard B. Evans,
for attorney general, was a novelty.
Mr. Evans talked about the life of
Sergt. Jasper, scientific farming, good
water, the rearing of beautiful women,
law and the Bible, the proper methods
of forming new counties and what the
duties of the attorney general's office
are. He made incidental reference to j
the work of the two winding-up commissions,
but did not refer directly to
Attorney General Lyon. Mr. Lyon had
a jolly time for a few minutes, in
which sport the audience heartily
joined, making fun of Mr. Evans'
knowledge of the subjects he had discussed.
Passing rapidly to serious
matters, as he stated it, Mr. Lyon discussed
his record as attorney general.
He was loudly applauded; in fact, the

Mr. C. W. Bishop, who has been appointed
rural policeman at State
Park, Columbia, having accepted the
position and entered upon ms uuuco
July 1, writes to Mr. B. E. Julien, at
Helena, telling him a few things about
it. The park contains 2,220 acres,
with vegetables in abundance?cabbage,
onions, etc., and the finest corn
lie ever saw. There are 20 acres in
watermelons and cantaloupes. They
have also fine cows, hogs, etc.. and
are putting up some fine buildings.

There can be no reason why any
reader of this who suffers the tortures
of an aching back, ihe annoyance ot
urinary disorders, the pains and daggers
of kidney ills will fail to heed tie word
of a resident of this locality who.--has
found relief. The following is-*convincing
proof. , 3 tmm
Mrs. J. M. Wheeler, Prosperity, S.
Car., says: "My kidneys were disordered
for a long time, causing terrible
pains through my loins and limbs.
There was also a constant ache in my
back and on some occasions I could
scarcely get about The kidney secretions
were unnatural and annoyed me
greatly. I consulted several physi
cians and tried a number of kidney*
remedies, but did not improve in the*
least. I had about given up the feppeof
ever being cured when my aonrip-law
procured a supply of Doan's Kid*- s
ney Pills for me at W. E. Pelham &
Son's drug store. He had read that
they were good for kidney trouble and
induced me to try them. I did so and
after I had taken the contents of two
boxes my backache had disappeared
and my kidneys had been restored to
their normal condition. I have recommended
Doan's Kidney Pills to many
of my friends and shall continue to
