Detained by Illness
William Coleman of Union, the
fifih of Lhe gubernatorial candidates
(to speak, said that he had been unable
to make the entire campaign because
of sciatica, which is "toothache
in ihe lower limbs." M*\ Cole(
man thought that the trouble with
I' , South Carolina was that there had
f beer too much factionalism and ring
control in political affairs and that
the present was the time for a housecleaning.
He had his platform print
p ed in pamphlet form and any voter
might secure a copv by sending him
a postal card request to his heme in
Union. He said that it would make
geed reading for the Lord's day and
that it was a platform "full of prospects,
prosperity and hope."
f Laney Was Last

teriuld was the last of the speakers
seeking the gubernatorial chair. He
made a clear-cut speech and was
heard with close attention, receiving
quire a bit of applause and a backet
cf flowers when he concluded. He
paid a tribute to the memory of the
late Congressman D. E. Finley wh5m
he said was unbeatable while he lived.
He stood for economy and readjustment
cf the tax burden and he
wanted ."the State paper. to know
that I am giving half of my time to
.He stood for a fair deal "between
capital and labor. He reviewed his
I political experience as a member of
k the house of representatives four
B ' years and a member of the senate
p "I am here to shoulder my part of
the responsibility for the appropriation
bill of the last general assemi
biv," said Senator Lanev, "and I am
here to tell you that it makes no difference
who you elect your governor,
the appropriation bill a year from
now will be about where it stands
now. The big items in that bill are
for the maintenance of the asylum,
common schools and Confederate
| soldiers and no' candidate has said
' that he would take a single dollar
from any of them."
Candidate Laney said that he ha '
achieved much in a uusmess and political
way by his own efforts. Not a
dollar was appropriated for the common
schools .when he first went to
the legislature, but now the common
school system of the state will favorably
compare with that of any other
state and he thought that at least a
part of the credit for school progress
W was his, since "Laney has fought the
r battle of the masses of school children
for twenty years,
t "The deflation period has about
bankrupted you and r.ot the legislature,"
said Mr. Laney. "Look at
ycur good roads / and .good schools
and yet you pay only about 7 mills
for state purposes. I stand for good
schools an (J for progress and 1*11 go
^ dcwn into defeat standing for them.
I'll not agree to a reduction of taxes
fc-r the common schools under any

I amount to the puff of a cigarette in
an equatorial hail storm.

I understand every department

I am elected your governor I will be

class of industry?the friend of
the Southern Power company las well

Thanks for Rest
The band played a selection after
the candidates for governor had collie
eluded and everybody was thankful
for the diversion. E.rrh gubernatorial
candidate ?poke twenty minutes, or
two hours, in all and there was an
|i interval of about ten minutes before
the candidates for lieutenantgovernor
presented their claims for

and declared if he was lieuten*

Wc.s a farmer and banker of Aiken
Jennin^.- K. Owens of Marlboro, a
car.aiaate ior lieutenant governor
was born in York county, where his
^ father and mother had lived an<

high school and two years as a teacher.
He served the Yorkville gradec
oo! two y::irs a* hhitor while at-j
tending the Banks school, he said, j
I . i
He was familiar with parliamentary
law and he had if elected, "^ood,

Dr. ('. E. L. Adams of Columbia,
presented his claims for lieutenant

b. fore and was pleased to be back
again. He had no puo'iic record to
defend, having been an unsucces.5ful
candidate for office on one other
Adjournment was taken for dinner
after the candidates for lieutenant
governor had spoken and when
the meeting was resumed, the six
candidates for superintendent of education
were heard. There was a
large crowd of citizens gathered!
; close fo the stand for the afternoon:
meeting, most of them curious to!
hear the two women candidates. The
afternoon crowd, however, was not'
so large as that wich hearfl the can-!
; dilutes at the morning meeting. .J. H. j
Hope of Union was the first up!
air or. ? those seeking the office of su-l
perinten'ient of education. Mr. Hopej
'said th-:t he had been connected with j
the schools of Union county for 27 j
years and believed he was the beet j
: equipped man in the race. He said]
that thei" was something wrong with
| the educational system now since it
was evident that the state department
of education and the legislature
were not working in harmony.
u., l-nmv who was to blame.
He spoke his opposition to the re-!
cent adoption of new text books for j
the schools of the state, saying, that!
'it was costly and unnecessary and)
that there were many duplications.!
I There were now two sets of alge-j
; bras, geometries and other books. If J
:a child should have to move to an-!
other school it would be necessary to
buy a new set of bcoksif these at the
j second school were different from
'the first. Superintendent Swearin-j
gen had voted for the new adoption,:
Mr. Hope wanted to take high
' schools to the boys and girls in the
country since 85 per cent of the boysj
never saw the inside of a college. Hej
was not opposed to colleges, but he;
i did think that more high schools i
should be provided.
; O. D. Seay of Richland county
tcok occasion to say that the gathering
was the largest the campaign
party had addressed since the caniipaign
opened. Mr. Seay recited his
'educational experience and told of
;h'i3 fitness for the office. He was
; formerly superintendent of education
for Richland county.
Seigier Says He's Competent
C. H. Scigler of Aiken wanted the
'folks to know that he was as competent
as any of the other candidates
for state superintendent. He threw
ja few pleasantries at the two women j
j candidates whom he said were "rosesi
among thorns," and who should be j
'left in the home garden. He was a|
graduate of Clemson and he was formerly
a farmer, who fri 1920 had in:
vested all he had in boll weevils with-;
. out return.
I John E. Swearingen, superintend-j
!ent of education, who is seeking re-i
election, plea.ded with his hearers not]
to slip back despite the boll weevil]
end the ignorance of jonie folk- with!
figures. He wanted the people to |
know that the children of the state j
had gotten all the benefits of eduea-i
i tion the law allows. There was no
f-r'ctior. between his department and
the legislature and any intimation:
ha: there was friction was nothing j
but "an attempt to bamboozle ycu."
He asked the question if the schools
were not much better now than they
used*to be. There had been no attempt
to conceal from the public the
adoption of new text books and. the
State and the Xews and Courier had
ouD'iSneu mo i;si some time
.Mi*. Swearin<rcn r>lead< .1 for a seven
months schoc! term for every white
child in the state.
Women Get Attention
When Mrs. E. B. Wallace, the fir:t
of the two women candidates for su\
' pcrintendent of education, was introduced,
attention appeared to become
more concentrated and numbers
of necks, especially those of
women vcleis, were craned to <ret a
Letter view of her. Mrs. Wallace
told of he'- interest in education and
of her w jrk in army camps in the
states a::.' abroad. She was at present
sr.peiv'-jr cf mill schools at
G: at Fal; > and she wanted to be
elected superintendent of education
in or-Ifr that she rr.isrht be of greater
. .service. Replying co Mr. Seigler, rcl.
ative to roses among thorns, she
. paid it was a common custom to
, pluck the roses ; n i leave the thorns.
[ Rain Interru^.s. Mr". Drake
; Big drops of rain were falling
l about the time Mrs. Bessie Rogers
. Drake of Marlboro county began her
; speech, and she did not take her
! whole' time. She told of her assoeia
tion with York county by reason of
5 the fact that she was a graduate of
- Wir.'hrop college, and said that many
I organizations of women had endorsi
led her candidacy. She wanted the.
| voters to know that a woman was!
I perfectly capable of managing the 1

education of the state of Texas, who
