We regret very much that we
cannot publish the communica
tion of "Truth," because we have
already burnt the bridges be
hind us, and do not propose now
to turn back and repair them for
our enemies to cross. The com
plimentary expressions with re
gard to the editor of THE TiMES,
coming as they do from such a
high and sincere source, is indeed
gratifying although merited, for
we have done everything in o.r
power to hold a high place in
our profession and as a citizen.
Were it not that we have already
promised the public we would be
glad to give to our readers the
scathing exposures of hypocrisy
depicted by "Truth."
We heartily agree with those
newspapers who are condemning
mud-slinging among the candi
dates for State offices, and wher
ever a candidate steps aside
from the public questions to in
dulge in abuse and vituperation,
or throwing out slanderous hints
he should be promptly called
down and prohibited from con
tinuing his speech. The candi
date who undertakes to ride into
office by manufacturing suspi
cions, is unworthy the confidence
of the people and should be made
to feel his littleness- Before the
people became educated politi
cally there was some prospect of
fooling them, but now the can

The attempts to cripple the
influence Governor McSweeney
has merited with the people are
dismal failures. No Governor
since the enactment of the dis
pensary law has a clearer rec
ord than has the present Chief
Executive. It is utter folly for
his opponents to try to make the
people believe that Governor
McSweeney has been indifferent
towards the enforcement of the
dispensary law. Wherever it
was possible he has caused of
fenders of the law to be prose
cuted and raided: that there ex
ists blind tigers in Charleston is
no fault of his. It is the fault of
the people of that city, who are
almost unanimously opposed to
the dispensary law. Governors
Tillman, Evans and Ellerbe did
not prevent the existence of
blind tigers in that city even
- with the aid of a metropolitan
police. Why? It was an impos
sibility, and it is impossible to
enforce a prohibition law in the
same city because the population
favor the use and sale of stimu
lants. The records show that
Governor McSweenev has en
forced the law in a business-like
manner and with so little fric
tion that not one drop of blood
has been shed in the exec-utio-n

THE STATE CAMPAIGN
In South Carolina does not seem to
be conducted on that "high plane"
which was expected, especially on
the part of one of the candidates for
gubernatorial honors. Mr. A. How
ard Patterson of Baruwell, candidate
for Governor, at the opening meet ing
at Orangeburg precipitated a bit of
mud-slinging by accusing Governor
McSweeney of patronizing blind ti
gers. failing to enforce the dispensary
law and paving: for newspapers out
of the contingent fund. As to the
first charge Governor McSweeney
promptly branded that contemptible
allegation as absolutely false, on
every occasion where it has been re
peated by Patterson, who attempted
to prove the charge by producing an
article which originally appeared in
the (eonee News sometime since, in
which the names of certain gentle
men were used to prove the allega
tion, the names of the gentlemen al
luded to as having given the infor
mation being Mr T C. Duncan of
Union, Mr. William Barnwell of Co
lumbia, and a certain man named
Green, formerly of Greenwood, now
of Alabama, as alleged by the editor
of said newspaper. The initials of
the mythical Mr. Green are not
given. Mr. Duncan and Mr. Barn
well each denies that he made any
such charge against Governor Me
Sweeney. So Mr. Patterson's ridic
ulous charge as to the blind tiger
business falls flat. His other charge
as to failure to enforce the dispen
sary law is equally untenable, as it
is a fact that cannot be successfully
refuted that the dispensary law
(without making invidious compari
son against former administrations)
has been more satisfactorily en
forced, and with less friction, under
Governor McSweeney's administra
tion than ever before.
Mr. Patterson's charge that the
Governor is paying for newspapers
out of the contingent fund is the
smallest sort of clap-trap and unwor
thy any aspirant to the high and
honorable position of Governor of
South Carolina, and is not only dem
agogic, but a covert insinuation that
it is an attempt upon the part of
Governor McSweeney to subsidize
the newspaper press of the State,
and that in the Governor's opinion
their editors are purchasable at a
very cheap price.
The sending of newspapers to t he
executive department and being paid
forout of the contingent fund was not
inaugurated by Governor McSwee

number of years, and has never be

Mr. Patterson will have to take
some other tack, if his prolific brain
can find one, in order to injure the

of the oath in question, says:

Col. Hoyt is strangely in error in say
in that the clause of the Constitution
regarding the oath to be taken by can

the general election and not the pri

error in such construction, because the

A SECOND-HAND STORY.
In one of his first speeches in this
campaign A Howard Patterson, Esq.,
charged that Gov. MeSweeney patro
nized blind tigers and drank liquor at
the Merchants and Manufacturers club
in Cohnmbia. He gave as his authority
Mr. Verner of the Oconee News. Gov.
MSweeney (denied the charges emi
phatically. Now conies Mr. Vernoi'
and says that lie tiid not know of his
own knowledg~e about the charge but
he had heard several men say so. M r.
William Barnwvell of Columbia was one.
T. C. Duncan was another and a man
named Jones who once lived in Green
wood but is now in Alabama. Mir. Dun
can writes that once in conver'sation he
remarked that he had seen a copy of
Gov. McSweeney's Message to the last
General Assembly befor'e it was read.
It was exhibited by a gentleman to
whom McSweeney gave it in one of
the clubs. He had never met Govei'
nor McSweeney and could say nothing
about the blind tiger patironage of his
own knowledge. Mi'. Bai'nwell was
just as indefinite in an interview pub
