Marion. Aug. 13.-?The four candidates
or the United States senate
spoke to a crowd of about 2.000 Marion
county voters nere today at the 3Su
of the 44 campaign meetings..
There was little new in any of the
speeches, which were listened to attentively
by an audience marked by
its good order and good humor. Marion
gave a majority against Governor
Blease two years ago and the sentiment
at today's meeting indicated i
that the county is no: likely to leave
the anti-BIease colivmn. County
10-airman J. W. Johnson presided.
L. D. Jennings spoke1 first. He said

ing unfolded by both the senator and
the governor, therefore, he would dis- j
cuss only that of the governor, who,!
although boasting of his record, "the
dirtiest ever made by a white man in i
South Carolina,'' had not given it to
the people. He said he knew of only
three men who voted against the governor
in 1912 that will vote for him
this year, Eugene McSweeney, editor
of Hampton; John P. Grace, of Char- i
leston; "who said a1.! kinds of things
against the governor," and John G. j
Richards, "who is trying to fool the
* Bleaseites into voting for him for
governor." He said thousands had
turned from the governor. Reviewing
the Richey and Emmerson cases, Mr.
Jennings said he would himself have
signed a petition Tor Emmerson's parole
under the condition' that Emmerson
"leave fche State and take Cole. L. j
Blease with him." Mr. Jennings closed
W. P. Pollock was greeted with
cheers by his "friends from the other
side of the Great Pee Dee." Discussing

paid a tribute to the late Judge Haskell,
saying, "I would rat'-er be Alex- j

staff appointments, read the

aeted in an individual as in the prosjwxity
of the State; that he had no
apology for keeping his pledge to
:work for the farmer. The senator took
a /ew shots at lawyers, then launch?d
fnto his ''cotton'* speech, reciting
record cfc* activity in behalf of the
farmer, in and out,oif the senate.
He discussed the proposition to
hare the Federal government "come
to the rescue" in the present cotton
crisis. The senator said a circular
lad been distributed asking the mem
bers of a certain order not to vote
? for tini because he was in favor of
unrestricted immigration, that he demanded
of the head of thii order that
he he given justice, adding that he had
in his possession a letter of apology
from the man who wrote the circular.
The senator reiterated his immigration

GoTernor Blease Beads Letter.
Governor Blease was greeted with
djjplasse. He began by reading the
Hollowing letter he said he received
here today by special delivery from
the county chairman of Newiberry:
"County Democratic Committee

The governor quoted from his St.
Matthews speech in which he de
nounced Chairman Keitt as a "desertt
er" from the Democratic party years
ago and as "the leader of the Poputtsts
in this State."
He declared that this was a scheme
to keep him from Kingstree meeting
and that instead of hurting it would
help him in this campaign.

The governor was i . e last sp( aker.
He directed most oi his remarks at i*.e

accustomed attack on Senator Smith's
leccrd andurgvd his supporters to be
on the a!er.t the day of the primary to
prevent another '"steal."
The governor said that two years
ago he had ad.ised some of his fol
lowers to take monev offered bv the
other side and '"go in and vote for

here to make the white "Deasites"
sick, and was satisfied if he had done

replied, "Well, my friend, you

In Japan there is followed the pretty

To meet the demand for fireflies thus

Handling Shells and Powder at a

i SAFETY FIRST IS THE RULE.;

Iona island, the Cuited States naval
j ammunition base in the Hudson river,
' covers llti acres. Witbin its limits are
j stored about 3.UOO.IMX) pounds of
i smokeless powder and over l.OUO.OOO
' pounds of black powder, besides many j
i thousands of shells. This war maj
terial is kept in large brick and stone
powder magazines and shell houses.
The powder magazines all have four
j separate fireproof walls and are divid- j
ed up into compartments in order to
prevent a fire or an explosion from
reaching or destroying tbe entire contents.
The loaded shells are kept separately
from the empty projectiles and
are stored in two fixed ammunition
i magazines. Each shell is weighed and
numbered before being put away. The
weight is recorded in chalk on the
Magazine attendants inspect the shell
houses and powder magazines many
times during tt.e day and night At
night each visit is recorded on the disk
of tbe magnetic clock in the administration
building. The temperature in
the shell houses and powder magazines
is Kept Deiween so ana ?v> degrees.
Just bow many sbeils for the big
battleships are stored away at Iona
island is a secret, but there are lots of
them. They are expensive. Thus the
fourteen inch shells, weighing 1.G00
pounds and requiring a charge of nearly
400 pounds of powder, cost about
One of the principal activities at
Iona island is the manipulation of
smokeless powder for charges for the
large and small cruns of the navy and
of black powder for bursting charges
for the shells. The powder filling
bouses are situated at widely separated
points. They are small one story
I wooden structures, lsoiaxea owing to j
the possibility of s.n explosion. The
men working in them are required to
wear white serge suits and moccasins;
no metal or other articles are allowed
in their pockets which might in any
way cause a spark.
All the tools, funnels, measuring
cups, scales and other appliances used
are made ot copper. Here the delicate
and somewhat dangerous business of
weighing out the various smokeless
powder charges is carried on. The
weighing !aas to be done very carefully.
At thif ladian Head proving grounds

adapted for the varuma guns, and at
annual target practice the results

change* in the composition of the powder
lead to changes tn the weight of
Each morning the day's supply of
powder is brought from the magazine
to the filling houses in lead colored
wooden boxes. (These are zinc lined
and air tight. The boxes of powder
are emptied into a long wooden trough
and with a copper scoop the powder Is
I dipped out, accurately weighed and
i tied up in quarter, half and full charges
Id bags of white muslin.
These bags have several wide streamers
for fastening them, and each is
tagged with the date of filling and the
amount of powder it contains. A small
ignition cbnrge of quick burning black
powder, to set off the smokeless, is
J stowed in the bottom of each bag. The
j bags are then placed in large copper
cans and returned to the magazines,
where they are held in readines3 to go
aboard the ships.
The big charges of 400 pounds for the
i fourteen inch guns are arranged In
.J four charges of 100 pounds ea?h. The
J b gs when piled on top of one another
reach to the top of a man's head and
present a formidable sight of bottled

in the magazine houses Is loading
the projectiles with their bursting
charge. For ::he fourteen Inch shells

ered a foot or so into a stout wooden
' frame with an opening a trifle larger
| than the shell. 'Then a long narrow
bag Is inserted in the shell cavity
| and the measured amount of black
powder is poured through a funnel into
the shell. Some fifty of these huge
I projectiles can be loaded in a day.
