ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE.
Fellow Citizens: On next Tues
day between the hours of S
o'clock in the morning and 4
o'clock in the afternoon you. as
free white men, will be called
upon to say by your vote., who
shall represent you in the State
Senate. I call upon .Vou to lay
aside personal prjudice. obliga
tions, and everything else, save
the single determination to
let auaiitication and merit gov
ern you in selecting between
Charles M. Davis and Louis Ap
I realize that Mr. Davis, by
reason of his extensive mercan
tile interests in which he does a
large lien business, might think
that those to whom he makes ad
vances should feel themselves
under obligations to him and
cast their votes for him, in fact,
quite a number of men have told
me this is their sole reason for vot
ing for him: the vote he received
in the section where the greater
oortion of his advances have
been made, is an indication that
many so voted because they se
cured credit from him. When a
man is called upon to vote, it is
not a proper exercise of the vot
ing right to allow such things to
influence him. A man who has
the proper appreciation of his
duty to his country, should be
broad enough to exercise his
right to vote, without fear or
favor, and solely for the best in
terests of his country.
The same principle applies to
the lawyer whose client is a can
didate, or the lawyer who is
seeking the candidate's business,
and the broker, insurance agent,
doctor, merchant or employee,
lienor or what not, who votes for
a man simply for the reason that
he has been given financial sup
port by the candidate, is
not the way a true and
loyal citizen should exercise the
right of suffrage. My idea of
of voting is, that it is the high
est privilege a citizen has, and
he should exercise it conscien
tiously without regard to his
personal feelings. I have on
several occasions voted for men
whom I disliked, but did so
because I believed they were
better qualified for the positions
they were seeking. I have even
voted for a man who I have rea
son to believe is my personal
enemy and who has used every
effort in his power to injure me
financially and politically, yet I
voted for the man because I be
lieved he would till the position
to the interest of the people
all voters should try and divest
themselves of personal preju
dices, and petty spites, and keep
in mind that in giving away to
prejudice,passion. spite or favor,
you might bring about harmful
I want the Democratic voters
of Clarendon county to think
well before casting their votes
on next Tuesday, because it is
their interest as well as my own,
which is at stake. Four years
ago, you sent me to the State
Senate and in that body I en
deavored to represent you with a
sole ambition to make a reputa
tion which I could hand down to
my children as a proud heritage.
I was no figure-head in that
body as you know: my record is
like an open. book to you, and
every one of you were kept post
ed each week, as to what was
being done during the four ses
sions I had the honor- to repre
sent you. I have never heard
where a single complaint from
the people has been made against
me as Senator, but on the con
trary, the people have been ex
pressing themselves in the most
complimentary manner. At the
campaign meetings, not a single
charge was mnade against my
integrity, notwithstanding I had
three opponents, and the oppo
sition was concentrated against
me; if my opponents were not
able to show,that I was a failure
as your Senator, is not that fact

ful to the trust reposed in meY Are
the brave people of Clarendon
going to repudiate a man who
has been tried and found to be
true and loyal:' Are the farmers
of Clarendon going to turn their
backs upon a man who has stood
by them with unswerving fidel
ity? Let my olponents show
one single instance where I have
committed a questionable arct,

Friends! there never would
have been any opposition, had I

politician: if I had said "atmen"

friend of the farmer"hle was when
he was supporting some men
who are now out, and others who
will get out just as soon as the
people can get a whack at them:
rather than be a tool for any
man or set of men. I would pre

would leave their business if it
was only a case of personal pref
erance? Oh no, I have opened
the eyes of the people through 1
these columns to the danger 1
ahead of them. and because of
this, every scheme that human
ingenuity can devise, together
with foul methods. is being
brought into play to defeat me.
I could have kept off this oppo
sition, and gone back to the
Senate unopposed, if I had been
unfaithful to the people: if I had 1

against Appelt, and I appeal to
the farmers of Clarendon whose1
friend I have always been,to sayx
by their votes next Tuesday, that
they will not lend themselves to
strike down a friend to gratifyx
personal and business spleen.
My opponents are hard pressed1
wen they seek to fool voters by
trying to put in circulation a
dirty story that negroes are elc
tioneering for me. I hav-e ito 1
doubt some few negroes about]
this town whom I have donte - 1
-ors for, have expressedl thtem
selves as "'wishting Mr. Appelt
sccess in his race." I hav-e not
the slighest doubt that sonte one
or two who work around my.

what isthere in that? I wvill

haxe expressed their wishtesi
for -"Cap'n Charlie to be elec-1

ith breath stinking with wh is

when it is repeated the man :
should be gix-en to under-stand 1
that it is beliex-ed he is lying and
paid to lie: for what white man 1
in Clarendont County is so pre- t
judiced to believe me to be so
lacking in sense as to hax-e a ne-~ 1
gro to electioneer for me. and I
will saxy further if there are a ny 1
neroes who are actually elec

Hou. Louis Appet. Manning. S. C.:
Replying to yours of this date I will
briefly state what I know of the Bill,
introduced by you at the last session of
the General Assembly, to ami-url An
Act entitled "An Act relating to the
I powers of certain corporations."
I prepared the measure proposed.
as a careful reading of the same will
clearly show, that it was simply inten
ded as one of PROTECTION to the citi
zens of all cities and towns effected by
it; Its chief purpose, as appears on its
face, was to prevent the city or town
councils of any such city or town, from
imposing taxes in excess of the ordinary
rate authorized by its charter. except
such special taxation should be endors
ed by a majority of the QUALIFIED
electors thereof. at an election for that
purpose. to be held under the CONSTI
TUTIONAL SAFE GUARDS PROVIDED BY
Personally, I approve in all respects
the proposed measure., as I considered
it if enacted into a law, a wise and sa!
utary one: under its provisions; only
such persons as should be duly qualiied
voters, under the constitution and laws
of this State would have been permit
ted to vote on the question of increased
taxation. The Bill had nothing what
ever to do with the suffrage question.

The above letter is self explanatory,
and should put to shame the men who
have been circulating a falsehood to
deceive the voters. The Bill was
unanimously reported "favorable" by
the judiciary committe of the senate,
composed of some of the best legal
minds in the State, and it passed the
cenat without a disenting voice. A
Bill to allow negroes to vote would not
have received such an endorsment.
