The County Record, published
at Kingstree. the present home of
Mr. .Joel E. Brunson, candidate for
Governor. recently nominated or
suggested by the prohibition fac
tion in a convention in Co
lumbia, has felt called upon to
read us a lecture for making pub
lie the political career of the Pro
hibition candidate. This it did
without doing us the fairness to
reproduce the whole of the edito
rial complained of. The editor
of the Record is young, and per
haps when he has been at the tri
pod longer he will be more fair,
and let his readers see the cause
of his complaint against another
editor. Now, that our readers
may judge between us, we here
with reproduce the Record's com
THE MANNING TIMES usually bases
its editorials upon facts, but when it
said in last week's issue that Mr. Joel
E. Brunson -'has been a persistent
seeker for office until the hope of
gratifying his ambitions was so for
lorn that he was forced to give it up,"
it left its usual path, The editor of
the Times must to have been misin
formed as to who Mr, Brunson is,
for never but once has he been a can
didate for any office, and was then
elected in the primary, but was left
out by the convention which made
up the ticket.
The occasion referred to is the
same one that THE TIMES mentions,
when Mr. Brunson opposed Dr.
Woods for the legislature from the Sa
lem section in Clarendon county,
and Mr. Brunson was then the suc
cessful competitor, and not Dr.
WVoods, as THE TIMEs asserts. But
perhaps fifteen or eighteen years
affect the memory of the pugnacious
editor of THE TIMEs.
The Record is correct when it
says "THE- MANNING TIES usu
ally bases its editorials upon
facts," and in the case the Record
complains of. THE TIEs' editorial
wvas based upon facts wvhich wve
are prepared to provc if Mir.

had a little to do with the politics
of~ tlfis county when he. although
a straniger to the people, was a

is entirely gratuitous and will go
by this time without special no
tice, but we place the Record on
notice that Tus TIMES will base
its editorials upon facts, and be
fore the campaign is half over
some of these facts will prove of-'
fective with people who are not
carried "off their feet"I by a senti
iment. We further give notice to
the Record that we will charge it
with unfairness whenever it con

IE GIVE CEASAR HIS DESEtTS.
It is not our purpose to misrepre
sent any man, and we will not do so
knowingly, at the same time we pro
pose to discuss a candidate's political
career with perfect freedom, and in
our support or opposition,we will en
deavor to steer clear of a milk and
water policy, so frequent among edit
ors in this day. We have decided
opinions upon all questions and do
not hesitate to express them when
ever we deem it necessary.
In conversation with Mr. Joel E.
Brunson, the candidate for Governor
on the Prohibition-Dispensary ticket,
a question of memory arose, the Pro
hibitiou-Dispensary candidate thiuks
we were mistaken when we said in
our issue of the 20th inst., "The very
head of the ticket, while a consistent
advocate of prohibition has also been
a persistent seeker of ofice until the
hope of gratifying his ambition was
so forlorn that he was forced to give
it up." fr. Brunson claims that he
never asked for a vote of this
people and was never a can
didate, except in the sense that
he allowed his name used once in
what may be termed a preliminary
primary in Salem. He further says,
in that primary he defeuted Dr.
Woods and it was the only time he
was ever voted for, and that it was
unjust for us to say "the hope of grat
ifving his ambition was so forlorn
that he was forced to give it up."
We stated that, while a resident of
this county Mr. Brunson was a per
sistent seeker for office and as the
gentleman denied this, we requested
him to make said denial over his sig
nature that we may publish it; this
proposition was declined with
the request, that we correct the erro
neous impression we might have
made regarding him. We have lived
in Clarendon for a quarter of a cen
tury and since attaining a -voting
height ,we have taken an active inter
est in the political affairs of this coun
ty; we knew Mr. Brunson during his
residence in Salem. Our recollection
is that Mr. Brunson also took consid
erable interest in politics in those
days and was quite active in our Con
ventions and at the county executive
Ho wvas regarded at that time
as a candidate for ":ny old thing"
and his not having asked for a vote,
and was not voted for, is no sign that
he did not have his rods out for the
political lightning to strike. Very
few men who are ambitious for office
make a direct personal request for a
vote, but they have friends who can
plead most persuasively. This gentle
man admits that he ran in a prelimi
nary primary in Salem, but declares
he defeated Dr. Woods and was de
cared the choice of Salem and that
on account of the action of the execu
tive comnittee he failed to get the
noination. Our recollection is that
Salem was coinstantly claiming
a representative on the ticket
and we were among those who be
lieved, on account of her large p)or
tion of the Democratic vote her claim
was just; this view held by the lead
ing men on this side hut the diflicui
ty wvas thalt Salem had two aspiranuts,
both claiming to be the choice of
those people. Th~ese gentlemen were
Mr. Joel E. Brunson and Doctor I.
1. Woods, anid each had backers, the
result was a suggestion for that sec
tion to hold a preliminary primary
and choose a candidate with the un
derstanding that whoever they seleet
ed would be supp~orted on this side,
and which meant certriiu election;
this proposition was agreed to, and
Joel E. Brunson this same man
whose head is now stuck ou] to a dis
pensary body, with a free lipuor tail
to wag, and Doctor L. M. W~oods en
tered the race for G-Xem's choice
pledged to abide the result, Mr.
Blrunson claims now that he came out
vitorious and our memory tells us
that Doctor Woods was declared the
one chosen; our memory also tells us
that Mr. Brunson contended that he
was chosen and Dr. Woods disputed
his claim and the whole upshot of the
dispute resulted in both of them
staying at home and Salem bei.:g left
without a representative. T1his par
ticular p~rimary was the only one in
which Mr. Brunson's name wvas voted,
but our readers will remember that
before o'ur present primary system
we had conventionsh aud there were a
number of men who stood around
gaping with the hope that a plum
would drop in their mout hs; they did
not ask any body to vot for them
either, hut those who could not see
by t heir mfanwar-vering theyv were
seeking office were blind indeed, and
Mr. Brnnson then of Clarendon form
erlv of Sumter and now of Williams
burg, was conspeuous among that
ls. We aserrt most positively that
Joel E. Brunson was regarded an
office-seeker while he resided in this
county and the people thought it
presumptions in him; conpartively
a stranger, and in order that his
friends may not say he was even in
those days battling for prohibition
we will say, as a matter of fa-t, the
question was not an issue at all, nor
did Mr. Brunson attempt to make it
Sinee the glorious victory of Dew
ey at Manila, a partial acconut is on
our first page, there has been noth
ing but news confirming the crush
ing defeat of the enemy with the de
tails lacking. There is no doubt that
the Spaniards feel keenly the blow
struck them in the Phillippines, and
although Dewey's fleet was wade up
of unarmored vessels he proved be
yond a doubt the superiority of
American seamanship and valor. The
Spaniards have cut the cable at Ma
nilN and it will be several days be
fore we will be able to get any news
from that quarter. The next to come
will be that the stars and strips will
be proudly floating over the city of
Manila if such is not the case to-day.
The United States won a magnificient
victory, and another such will be the
"blow that killed father" and hostili
ties will cease; the demands of Uncle
Sam will be vielded to and Cuba will
be free. The army is about ready to
undertake the invasion of Cuba, and
our State has already gotten up her
quota and the troops are now going
into camp at Columbia. The Man
ning Guards are not quite ready but
the fault is not with the Captain, who
is anxious to carry his company to
the front, and to that end Captain
Davis has been working night and
day to secure the necessary 84 men.
He now has 65 and has until to-night
to get the remainder; should be fail
to get the required number the Man
ning Guards will not have a place in
the picture. Fii zhargh Lee has been
appointed a Major General. Senator

Ber h The Kind You Have Always BaugM
When every other county in South
Carolina agreed to put aside factional
differences here comes Charleston
with a discordant note and refuses.
The politicians of that city have done
considerably towards alieniating the
reSt of the State and they do not seem
to realize the fact that their narrow
minded policy is not being approved
of elsewhere. At their convention
last MIonday to elect delegates to the
State convention, at a time when the
Democracy is endeavoring to put
away factional differences Charleston
boasts of her factional spirit, and
they refused to allow the Reformers
representation oni the delegation.
Mr. Dinkin who seems to be one
of the high muck-a-mucks of that
city ,objected to giving the Reformers
representation for fear that it will
create the impression that the Con
servatives of Charleston"are weaken
ing," and he wanted "to see Charles
ton send a solid anti-Tillman delega
tion." This sentiment was received
with applause. it is fortunate for
tihe rest of the State that Charleston
is all alone in her foolish bigotry and
instead of, by her course winning
the approval of the .Conservatives
outside of that city the effect is quite
to the contrary which will be seen
when these wise (?) politicians un
dertake to wield any influence in the
State Democratic Councils.
In strong reform counties the fac
tional question was not mooted, dele
gates were elected from a reunited
Democracy and whether they were
Conservativeb or Reformers in the
past will not be taken into cousider
ation. Bat Charleston persists in re
fusing to recognize a reunited party,
and as a result of her blindness and
folly,she placed herself out of any in
fluential reach in party politics. Does
this help Charlesto>? We think not,
and if her people continue to permit
the present gang of politicians to
manage her affairs, just so long will
they find the rest of the State antag
onistic to her interest, politically and
We think the Ileformers acted silly
in refusing to vote in the convention;
they should have gone right ahead,
nominated men without regard to
factional affiliations and allowed the
extremists to defeat them. However,
Charleston is Charlhston, and there is
no place this side of Madrid that can
equal her record for foolish conduct
and it is not confined to any one fac
tion. Both Reformers and Conserva
tives in that county ought to be
wiped out of political existence to
matke room for a Bet of men to man
age her political affairs with some
degree of good judgment.
