Bisbopville. Aug. 15.?Unexpected
twists and turns in campaign issues
broke .thick land fast in Bis-iojville
today, which meeting beg?.n the
final ten day lap of the county to
county -four. Cole L. Blease, the first
of the five candidates for governor to
speak, switched much of his attach J
relative to the State Hbspital for the
Insane from Gov. Manning directly to
C: Fred Williams; superintendent of
that Institution. One letter'alleged to
have been written by Dr. Williams
was read, in which funds were asked

Duncan interrupted the speaker long
enough to ask if the original letter
was in the possession of the ex-govemor.
Mr. Blease said he could pro-1
di ce it. In his speech Mr. Duncan
charged that it was a fabrication to
f( ol the people and that it was the
sa,me gag tried upon Dr. Babcock,
superintendent of that institution,
di ring the heated campaign of fo t
ytars ago. A telegram, said to have
been sent by Dr. Williams, also was
read by ftfr. Blease. in which instructions
were asked as to the dis
position of the body of a dead patient,
and the request made for sufficient
deposit t? cover cost of transfer of the
corpse. Mr. Blease also read a letter
said to have been issued from
Manning headquarters in Columbia in

:o the letter, he was in concord with

. Tlie only reference made to this by
Gov. Manning was that it had bee i
sent out by a friend of his and that
he had not seen the letter. !
Another high light fn today's meetinz
was furnished by Albert S. Fant,,
candidate for railroad commissioner,
who came back to the stand long
alter he had spoken to disclaim the
charges that he was a Bleasite. 'Mr.
Blfase read from an up country paper
the alignment of the candidates. For
the office of railroad commissioner
Mr. Fant's name led all the rest of
alleged Bleasites. "I desire to set myself
right with the democracy of my
" Mr. Fant said, "and I state
here and now that my name is in the
wrong category. I am an anti-Blease
man." The statement by Mr. Pant
drew prolonged applause and many
came forward to commend him fo. |
this statement asjie left the stand.
The meeting today was largely at-]
tended, the crowd being estimated by J
many to be 1,400 or 1,500. Several
hundred of these were said to have
been from adjoining counties, which
wos amply confirmed by the number
of machines from Sumter, Darlington !
and Florence counties.

emphasized publicly on different occasions
by Mr. Blease 'and: "I stated
