through one week pleasantly and with
no bitterness in any of the speeches.
That is proper and it should 50
through the entire ^>pointments in
the same way. There if; no use for
any one to lose his temper or tear,
iiis shirt over any man or any candidate.
For real intellectuality Mendel *L.
Smith stands out like a tower among
the other candidates for governor.
And yet according to the Columbia
Record he is eliminated. He also says
in his speeches as reported by the
newspapers that be stands for the enforcement
of law. Why eliminate
The reports from the various counties
on the enrolment would indicate
that there will be at least 150,000
votes CL?st in the approaching primary.
There was cry of Ifraud two
years ago when the vote reached 140,000.
'What will be said this year? Let us
have a fair election and let every
white man cast his vote Tor the man j
of lis choice. Let the people rule.

In speaking of the candidates for
congress and their speeches at Abbeville
the Abbeville Medium says: "Mr.
Fred Dominick made a very favorable
impression. He is a' fluent speaker.
Judging by tfie applause it was a
Dominick, cr at least, an anti-Aiken
crowd." How aDout that, Mr. Press
and Banner man? It sounds like a
pleasant noise down this way.
Several letters which we have received
from good substantial men in
the Pee Dee section of Souto Carolina
state that Blease is much stronger
for the senate in that section of the
State than he was for governor two
years ago. Ef this be true he will ;have
a good safe majority on the first primary
and there will be no second primary
The Abbeville [Medium says the Ab
beville meeting was an anti-Aiken
meeting. What does the Press and
Banner say about it? We believe that
our prediction that Dominick would
carry all the counties in the district
save possibly Abbeville needs slight
modification. We. Should add Abbeville
to the list. Why say you, Mr,

According to the Columbia Record j f
\V. P. Pollock attended the elimination j t
meeting in Columbia and made a j 1
speech in which he stated t'iat Blease j t
on/3 thot frrwm Viic I \
ucicaicu auu 11 viu aaa *s/.vw j
to the counties through which the j l
senatorial candidates had passed that J t
Blease would not carry a county in j t
the State. The eliminators gave Mr. i t
Pollock great applause and passed j >
resolutions by a rising vote thanking J *
him for fae patriotic service which | a
he had rendered the State.- s
And then Mr. Pollock is quoted inj<
another Dlace as savins that if he fell i c
* "* I
sure that his withdrawal from the race |(
:or tlie senate would defeat Blease and *
Bleaseism that, he would withdraw x
right now. But the Record fails to '
tell w^at was done at the elimina- *
tion conifere:ice and what candidates s
for governor were' present and upon (
whom the patriots centered for the ^
people to vote ?for governor. We
thought that was what it was called (
for. We understood tnat tney were '
already satisfied as to the senatorial race,
but that they were just a little i
afraid t'hat one of the candidates who j1
might vote for Blease would be elect- 1
ed governor. We suspect the eHmina- 1
tor got broke about t-e time the conference
met and therefore they would !1
take up their time hearing Mr. Pol- J
lock speak. We repeat our motto: 1
Let the people rule.
From the Columbia Record's account
of the elimination conference all we
could find that was dene was to hear
the speech of Mr. Pollock and to pass
resolutions commending the patriotism
of Mr. Pollock. It seems from the
morning dailies that the eliminators
marched up the 'hill and down again
and decided that Blease and Bleaseism
was already buried so deep that it was
unnecessary to eliminate. That, at
least, is what is given out. The Rec
crd, however, comes out in one of
those black type editorials and says
that in its judgment the chances of
the candidates is in the order of Cooper,
first; Manning, second, and Clinkscales,
t'.iird. Is that really the consensus
of opinion of those who were
present, or does that express only the
opini n of the Record? What will
Sm|th and Smith and Browning and
Duncan have to say about that? According
to the Record and, at least
by the Record, these gentlemen are
eliminated and it is necessary to elim
inate them to bury Blease and Bleaseism,
although it is already buried beyond
recognition. It is all a very
funny proceeding. We repeat our
motto and slogan: Let the people
rule. Whoever the people say t&ey
want for governor will suit us. We
are not going to try to dictat-i to them.
The white man's primary was adopted
to get tv.e will of the white people.
Let the people rule. And the people
will rule. Please don't forget that.
The day when a few men could get
together and say who must be governor
or who must till any other office
has passed. Don't "orget that. -Richards
is a good man. Simms is a good
man. And Irby is all right. Please
don't forget that. If these men are
dead and buried because they say
they are going to vote for Blease what
was the need of the conference. Mr.
PollocK no doubt knows. Let the peo- j
j pie rule j
j What is the matter with the officers
i" :he law in Souih Carolina, i
poHcmen in the cities and towns, the
sli -rlI'tV and constables? They arp
sworn to maintain peace and good or
tr in the several towns, cities and f
ountn.-s of the State; and it is t.eir j
nty to maintain order ;?t public m^etngs.
as well as on the streets or els* raere.
Vet this rough house stuff,
heckling" it is ea:k <\. is pulled off at
iall" campaign meetings in the 44
ounties. If the officers o: *\ie law did
heir duty there would be no interuption
of speakers at thest eunpaign
meetings. T.e fact that suen cond"?t
s permitted shows vow far snort 01
ischargirig their duty the officers of
lie law are falling. What is the exilanation.
Is it possible that the
ough element is in the majority in
ome of the counties and that officers
;ected by the people are'afraid of that
dement??Rock Hill Herald.
suppose you gei rigiu au\w: 10 xiaiu
acks and i.iv your prejudice aside 1
nd look at the situation squarely and
oberly, and tfiien answer yourself if
onditions are really any worse so
or as lawlessness is concerned, than
hey were some 20 years ago. In
.890 and 1892 there was mere bit-:
er partisanship than there is today, |
ve mean among the masses of the peo)le.
There was less disposition then
o listen to discussions than there is
oday. in Charleston and Columbia
he liquor laws have 'been openly [
violated e/.er since the dispensary j
. . 1
vas placed upen those communities, j
ind the conditions are just about Che
;ame as they nave been. At one time
Jov. Tillman placed Charleston un- |
ler metropolitan police. In another!
jommunities 'n the State the laws are '
jetter observed than they were in '
hose days. .We are quite sure that'
:ere in the town o: Newberry the laws
igainst selling liquor are better ob- j
serve than they were, and really we ^
lo net see that there is suc-Ma state of
awlessness in the State.
One great trouble is that the candi 1

ind order, and the newspapers are
leralding it to the world until after j
iwhile the people come to believe that
xe are really a set of outlaws. The i
[acts do not sustain the charge or
:he statement, and we cannot see
p.-nere it is doing tne state any g.oa ;
:o be constantly talking about law- j
iessness and trying to make it appear
that a majority off t'.;e people of this
State are outlaws, or endorse an administration
that stands for lawlessi
uess. And if those who are doing it!
aad any political judgment they would i
realize thc'.t they are not helping the
fortunes ofth:se they are pretending1
. . ..... , , i
to heiip. it is all done, or was started,
for political purposes. In this Demo-,
cratic country of ours we build on I
the principle that the people are the !
sovereigns, and you can't change or j
control or direct them by saying they j
are outlaws and anarchists. Again
we repeat our motto and our slogan: !
Let the people rule.
