ATTACK ON HOPE BY SWEAR1NGEN
Ail Candidates Save Coleman, Cantey
and Carter Heard at Meeting in i
Bamberg, July C.?Candid for!
stare offices spoke in Bamben. u y
xo an audience of between 2 ^nd
300 voters. All candidates were prcs- j
ent except William Coleman of Union;
and J. J. Cantey of Summerton, who j
are offering for governor, and S. T.!
Carter, who is unopposed for the of-,
Ice of state treasurer. It was nearly'
4 o'clock when the speaking by the j
two dozen speakers was concluded,:
although there was some delay in thej
program incident to the shifting of a:
locomotive which caused numerous!
interruptions ior xne speaiveta, wiiu
had to stop until the engine and
cars had made one of the periodic'
The most interesting development)
of the day was the attack on J. H.j
Hope of Union by John E. Swearin,gen,
state superintendent of education,
who said Mr. Hope had leaped
on his "back like an assassin'' about ;
the text book adoption by the state j
'board of education, and true to the;
teachings of his father he would:
shake him off. The Union candidate,!
Mr. Swearingen said, had become of-1
fended because he had referred toj
the fact that Mr. Hope had not men-]
tioned that he served as ?. ^ok agent:
last year when he was r?v c iting his}
record. Mr. Hope, the .- i~erin-j
tendent said, had also b'trn ff ndedj
because the state board, of which Mr.'
Swearnigen was only one <i nine'
members, had not adopted tht> books j
offered at a price of 100 per centj
above the contract price of five years j
ago. Now, he said, Mr. Hope was
lamenting the fact that text books.
would prove expensive this year to!
school patrons. If Mr. Hope wanted i
to save expenses by offering books at
100 per cent advance, he was sorry
for him. Mr. Swearingen sa'i. He;
did not think the office was a proper
one for a man who represented pub-|
lishing houses, he added, but if the
people wanted to vote for his opponent
they should do so. j,
Hope Makes Reply
Replying to the state superintend- j
ent of education, Mr. Hope said he!
always pitied the man who lost his:
temper, "for whe na man loses "
temper he loses his judgment." II
6aia :vir. bwearingen was saying ne
was unfit for the office because he
had been a book agent. "Politics J
make strange bedfellows," he contin-i
tied. "It's a game, I tell you." He
did not think the time had come in ]
South Carolina when a man could not
work for an honest living.
Referring to the list of text books
adopted, Mr. Hope said it appeared
. i j
that somebody was needed m the office.
He characterized the adoption '
as the wrorst deal ever put over the
people. The state law calls for uni- .
form lists, he said, and the state '
board had adopted duplicate 1' ts. He
thought the members had (>.<:. . led.
their powers in this. If he \h.-j.i '
in the office, before he wouI<i hav'e
allowed this to have been put over he
would have resigned, Mr. Hope stated.
The school affairs of the state, he
said, werp in thf? worst rnnrHtinn
they had been in for 27 years to his
own personal knowledge, and while
women made good teachers, he knew
a business man was needed in the office
to meet the exactions of the present
financial embarrassments. )
The race for comptroller general'
also added a slant of interest again
today as did that for attorney general.
Walter E. Duncan, comptroller
AVnl r* V\ aAT AMI VI.-. ^ A%1 + ? Am
anu iui I CClCt uun<\
told the voters that his opponent, T.
Hagood Gooding, former auditor of
Hampton count}, had yesterday at
St. George attempted to explain away ,
the muddle in Hampton county by.
saying that it was tfie fruit of partisan
politics. "But it's one of those;
things which will not explain away,".
Mr. Duncan said, reading excerpts
from the copy of the order by the '
state supreme court to vacate the of-'
fice within 24 hours and turn over I
to the present auditor bo">ks and,
records of the office. Mi said I
he didn't wish to refer i . ...atterj
No Irregularities, Says Gooding j
Mr. Gooding reiterated the state- j
ment that there had been no irregu-;
iarities in his office in Hampton coun-j
ty and that any one who said as much
was "a character stealing: liar." The
incumbent in the office of the comptroller
general was "comptroller general
by accident." he said, because
he h ^ no opposition two years rgo.
He a said that Mr. Dunca: was not
"a pi ;cal tax man but just a news-j
Sam M. Wolfe, attorney general,'
returned to the campaign today ami i
gave an account of his stewardship. |
The alfairs of the office were 100
pressing for him to be running over
the state with two youngsters "who
ire making statements which are so
ridiculous that a sensible man can not.
beiieve them." If either of the in *
^ l ill..
experienced young: men snouiu ue
elected. Mr. Wolfe said, it would be
necessary for every state department
to employ counsel and v '> the important
litigations per.i'ii. wished
to be returned to thr- ... clean
the slate. He pointeu ihe fact
that the state had won every case
thus far brought citing the canal
case which ha> reached the last stage
in the United States supreme court,
the Georgia boundary suit?and not
by "the Souih Carolina attorney gen
eral for his own glorification" as one
of his opponent? contended?and also
referred to the Sandel cases for
damages, in one of which the attorney
general's office had yesterday
scored another victory.
D. M. Winter, opponent, referred
to the fact that Mr. Wolfe had once
recommended that capital punishment
be abolished. If the people
elected him to the office, Mr. Winter
said, he would be "attorney general
and not merely on agent to employ
Harold Eubanks, also offering for!
the office, reviewed the record of Mr.
Wolfe and minted out that the cost
of maintaining the office had increased
by large sums within the last few
years. Much of this, he said, had
been paid to assistant counsel. :<If I
did not think I would make a bv" - r
attorney general than you now hr^ej,
I would not run for the office,*' h< i
Taxes Reduced Last Year
George K. Laney of Chesterfield'
was the first candidate for governor <
to be heard. Mr. Laney laid stress on
the efforts of the last general assembly
to reduce the state levy by placing
the burden on those not taxed
heretofore. Through the state
come tax, the inheritance tax, !u .
gasoline tax and +he increase'1 i:.-;
corporation lice. . r-s. he pointed out,
many of these people had been reached
and the state levy cut nearly half
in two. He illustrated by pointing
out that the man wh > put $200,000
in land heretofore paid heavily, while ,

in stocks and bonds escaped altogeth
Thomas G. McLeod of Bishopville '
emphasized again toda> that the tax
burdens were largely local in character.
He did no, charge that the
county administrations were extrav- 1
ajant, but he pointed out that 75 ,
per cent of the taxes paid in Bamberg: ]
is expended in Bamberg county while
only 25 per cent is used for state
purposes. The counties could reduce (

Mr. McLeod enlarged on the efforts 1
of the general assembly to tap new
sources, and, by continuing this procr-.m
and prae;ic:rg such economy a? <
to maintain ot^c;9r.c\, the peop.e, he ]
thought, would a.iju?: their ta>: problems
