THE BATTLE CONTINUED.
The county campaigners were
at the thriving town of Pine
wood when we went to press last
week, and therefore we could
not give an account of the meet
ing. Mr. J. R. Griffin presided,
and he held things down like a
veteran. We have heretofore
given our readers what the can
didates stand for, and most of
them made the same speeches
as at the former meetings. with
the exception of Mr. Weeks,who
threw more vim into his delivery,
and really made a very telling
speech. Major Richardson re
plied to the charges Mr. Gallu
chat made against him. Mr.Ap
pelt relied upon his long ac
quaintance with the people who
should have known him,and did
not bother to make any reply to
the absurd charges Mr. Gallu
chat made. He had more re
spect for the people's intelli
gence than to believe theywould
give any consideration to Mr.
Galgchat's spleen and buncome.
The speaking took place in the
church grove, and all the speak
ers received a most respectful
hearing. Mr. Appelt had been
told that he would be questioned
considerably by those who were
at Manning at the State cam
paign meeting, but instead, Mr.
Appelt was treated with the ut
most courtesy and during his en
tire speech seemed to-have a lis
tening audience. The next day
the candidates reached Summer
ton, a town the entire county can
feel proud of. There is every
evidence of thrift and energy,
and best of all, a practical dem
onstration of what pulling to
gether can do. No town in the
State, in the same length of time
has developed faster and it is
still developing. Summerton is
not booming but it has a strong
steady growth. Hon. C. M. Da
vis circulated among the visitors
with invitations to all of the can
didates to dine at the HotelSum
mnerton, and by the way, Mr.
Hunter, the proprietor of the
Hotel Summerton makes an ideal
host. He has cool and comfort
able rooms, and sets an excel
lent table. It was avery thought
ful courtesy extended to the vis
itors by the citizens of Summer
ton, and we can voice the senti
ments of the party when we say
it was sincerely appreciated by
all. It was unexpected kindness,
and only showed the public spir
it of Sumimerton's citizens.
The meeting was held in~ the
academy with Judge A. J. Rich
bourg presiding. Major Rich
bourg is an old-timer and knows
exactly how to keep a crowd to
gether. The 'attendance was.
good, and whenever a speaker
made a good point, the audience
recognized it with their applause.
They gave the speakers a con
siderate hearing, and after the
meeting many expressed them
selves favorably upon the way
most of the candidates were con
ducting the campaign. It was
iadeeded an enjoyable meeting.
Friday at Manning concluded
the speaking toni-, and as it was
the largest meeting and of suf
ficient importance to have a rep
resentative of the Columbia
State yresent, we reproduce his
account of that meeting.
Manning, Aug. 25.-The campaign
closed here yesterday -with about 400
voters present. The daywas ideal and
the meeting was called promptly at 11
o'clock by the chairman, Mr. D. M.
Bradham. The meeting was opened
by prayer offered by Rev. J. P. Inab
The first speaker was Mr. Louis Ap
pelt, candidate for the senate. He paid
tribute to the people of Clarendon, say
ing that whatever he was, he was in
debted to the people of Clarendon for
it. Mr. Appelt favored local option and
made quite an eloquent plea for it. He
said the dispensary had been a failure
financially as otherwise.
Next introduced was M. C. Gallu
chat, candidate for the senate. He
* opened up amid applause and told quite
an interesting joke. Mr. Galluchat
charged Mr. Appelt with being a Re
publican and with allying himself with
commercial Democracy. He favored
the State dispensary.
J. W. Kennedy was next introduced
and paid a tribute to the citizenship of
South Carolina, and said he wanted-no
ideas from Georgia or elsewhere to
manage the affairs of the State. He
spoke feelingly of the work he did as a
member of the convention and the leg
islature. All the candidates favor good
*roads, good schools and an equitable
adjustment of the taxes. Mr. Kennedy
~favored the State dispensary.
Henry B. Richardson was introduced
as the last candidate for the senate.
Major Richardson in the outset denied
the charges that were preferred or
made against nim to the effect that he
was brought out by any party or par
ties, stating that the report was abso
lutely false. Major Richardson favors
the State dispensary and thinks that
the dispensary can be restored to its
original form or possibly the system
can be made better. He thinks the
-dispensary has met all of its obligations
and it has decreased drunkenness.
Mr. 0. C. Scarborough said he was
sick and couldn't talk. He severely
criticised the delegations that have
represented the county in the past. He
is opposed to s e n di n me n
to the le gi sla t u re who owni
Lnd spoke very confidently of his elec
,ion on the 28th. He said that if he
as sent to the legislature he would do
Dr. I. M.Woods was next introduced.
le is iu favor of the State dispensary
.nd believes it has lessened drunken
tess in the State. He spoke for some
ength as to the whiskey question and
avored better roads, better schools
Lnd higher education, but unalterably
)pposed to compulsory education.
Geo. R.Jones for the legislature crit
cised the local option plan, saying it
,as the trick of political demagogues
Lad instituted as a blow at the State
lispensary. He cited instances where
he dispensary was voted out in some
>f the counties by negroes being allow
3d to vote and a number of white men
D. L. Green opened by thanking the
people of Manning and of Clarendon
for the vote given him two years ago.
He made no great promises on his cam
paign two years ago and did every
thing he could to aid the county
and State and did not take up time in
speaking on all questions that he was
not interested in at a cost of $1.00 per
hour; favors good roads, better schools,
opposed a measure to cut down the ap
propriation for Clemson college. He
favors the dispensary.
Mr. S. E. Ingram said all things had
gone on well all around the circuit
with a few exceptions. He seemed to
dislike Dr. Woods' endeavoring to
show up by comparison his local option
platform. Mr. Ingram quoted from
the Kingstree Record. "I condemn
everything that is imperialistic," If
elected he said that he would not allow
the lobbyists to influence him. He
dwelt upon the local option plan from
start to finish. HP spoke of his record
when only a boy of 16, during the
stormy days of '65.
Mr. W. W. Weeks favored the State
dispensary and believed in the Raysor
Manning bill. Mr. Weeks paid a trib
ate to Mr. W. 0. Tatum and Col.Wilie
Jones and said if they said that the dis
pensary was not bankrupt he believed
it, as he knew them personally.
Mr. Jno. ; R. Dingle was the last
speaker for the house of representa
tives, and opened up by saying that he
was not running on the demerits of any
other candidates but upon his own mer
its. He favored good roads but thought
that a direct tax upon the people
would be the only remedy; favored bet
ter schools and an equal- adjustment of
taxation. He is opposed to compul
sory educat'on and would vote against
it. Would vote to repeal the Brice
law if elected.
Mr. S. P. Holloday and Mr. F. Earl
Bradham, candidates for superinten
dent of education, both made eloquent
speeches and indulged in some very
witty jokes that created vociferous ap
Messrs Andrew Burgess and E. B.
Brown, candidates for auditor both
made good speeches. Messrs C. L.
James, R. E. McFaddin, Jr., PeterMel
let, T. C. Owens, Allen C. McFaddin
and Junius M. Strange all made good
speeches. They differed as to the way
roads are to be worked in the county.
The hour was growing late and the
audience threw bouquets at the candi
dates and jollied them along good-na
Messrs L. L. Wells and J. M. Wind
ham thanked the people for their sup
port. appreciating the fact that they
are having no opposition for treasurer
and judge of probate.
For magistrate at Manning Messrs
S. M. Youmans, E. C. Thames, J. M.
Bagnall and Thos. M. Ridgeway all
made their pleas and the campaign
closed at 3 o'clock.
The reports of the State show
Ansel to'have a long lead, with
Manning next and Blease thii'd.
Lyon for Attorney General also
has a long leae over his oppo
nents. These reports -may be
materially changed by tomor
The county vote shows Appelt
leading Richardson for the sen
ate, and these two will have to
make a second race. For the
legislature Dirngle is elected on
first ballot, Green, Woods, Scar
borough and Jones will have to
make a second race. R. E. Mc
Faddin, Jr., and 0. Allen Mc
Faddin for supervisor will have
to run over. Holladay for Su
perintendent of Education is
elected, and so is Burgess elect
ed auditor. We regret that we
have not a full and complete re
port of both State and county,
but it is the best we could do.
The cotton crop condition of
Clarendon is not as encouraging
as we should like, but the corn
crop is better than for a number
of years. The oats and pea vine
hay with the corn insures plenty
of food for- man and beast, and
it will be 'a great helper next
The editor of the News and
Courier seems to be enjoying
himself at the expense of the
Manning base ball team, but to
our way of thinking there was
once upon a time an aggregation
of men styling themselves the
"Charleston base ball team"
which seemed to be trying hard
to rob Manning of the world's
recorsd for defeats.
The county campaign wound
up in Manning last Friday, and
with but ohne single exception,
the candidates appeared to be
running upon their individual
merits, and not depending upon
winning votes by trying to be
smirch the political standing of
other men. This is an improve
ment on the past, and we hope it
will continue to improve until
the , people will scorn unfair
methods, especially misrepre
sentations and hypocrisy.
The conduct of A. C. Jones at
Greenville last week, in slap
ing Joel E.Brunson,was a shock
ing surprise to a host of Mr.
Jones' acquaintances throughout
the State, and they feel, if Mr.
Jones was sane, his conduct was
dastardly. cowardly and con
temptible. The newspaper ac
countAf the trouble shows that
the language used by Mr. Brun
son did not warrant Jones in us
ing violence, and the lact of his
acting as he did makes it clear
he is not a proper man _to be
placed in a trusted position by
the people, and he should never
in the future come before the
people again for anything, It is
also our opinion that Mr. Jones
destroyed himself in a business
way as well as politically. He
is a traveling salesman, and he
will find a cold reception wher
ever he goes hereafter. People
do not want anything to do with
any man who can be capable of
sch contemptible owwace

Editor The Manning Times:
I notice in your last issue a commu
nication from Little Girl. You would
be surprised to see how small she is, in
her own estimation. She is small, but
I notice she has a very fascinating way
and attractive person. that causes the
little boys from the age of 18 to 30
years to gravitate in her direction.
Possibly she thinks this is on account
of her being such a small girl. But
lots of us think it is caused by size, age
and good looks.
Now Little Girl we want you to use
your influence in getting some of your
sparks from 18 to 30 out to help us on
the school building. You mentioned
one as helping that hasn't done as
much as Willie and John Emanuel, in
fact he hasn't worked on the building
but one day. There are others that
we think should be there. Don't you
think so little girl? If you do try and
get them to come out. Possibly they
are waiting for a few of us to build the
house and then they expect to come in
and possess it. If that is their inten
tion we want you to inform them, little
girl, that the house will be built, and
that it will be theirs; but we would
like to have the pleasure of their com
pany before as well as after its comple
tion. Come out gentlemen and help us.
If circumstances make it so you -can't
come, give us your influence by speak
ing a good word for the school. Help
us every way you possibly can. Some
of us are making sacrifices in time and
means that is hurting. We are doing
this for what we think will be for the
best interest of the neighborhood. And
all we ask is for all of you to do what
the little girl tells you to do.

The rapid influx of immigrants
who are largely illiterate and
without spiritual life present an
urgent call for home mission
effort wherever they may segre
gate from our church.
This work among foreigners
to be successful requires a dif

mode of action from that used
among native Americans.

have some knowledge of their

The wealth of the South and
West, hidden away in its mines
and corn fields, has been until
ecently largely a latent power
but as it is developed it not only
gives money to Christian people
but the opportunity to right

of those who produce it. Our
great cotton mills, rapidly in
creasing in size and number of
operatives, our mining towns
and lumber camps, with their
masses of humanity-all call
loudly for evangelizing effort
from those who employ and un
derstand their several situations
and needs and from the church
at large. It is a work that, left
undone, will make wealth a curse
