STATE ELECTION NEWS.
The press dispatches are bela- C
ted on account of rain and floods, d
but enough has been reported to
show Rhett and Smith leading in
the senatorial race with Evans a
close third. We do not think
there is doubt of Smith being in
the second race, with a strong
probability of Evans getting in
with him. Should the fight be
between Smith and Evans, then
it will be up to the agricultural b
interests to chose between a man 0
who represents farming interests.
and one who represents that
great corporation, The Western
Union Telegraph Company. and, t<
should-the race be between Smith t:
and Rhett, then it will be for the v
people to chose betw-en farming b
interests and banking interests. S
Governor Ansel has a lead of b
10,000 over Blease, which will in t)
crease to at least 25,000 and per- b
haps more, unless the floods ,
cut the vote in the upper-tier of b
Counties. Let us be thankful
that the heel of disapproval has
been put on misrepresentation I
and demagogy. Boyd is leading r
Thompson for adjutant and in- f:
spector~ general. Jones has wal- -3

Swearingen leads for Superin

champ second. The indications o
are that Senator Neils Christen- a
sen has been re-elected senator, s
in Beaurfort. This showing may ~
look different tomorrow. It is
hard to get the news. -3
Let everybody get ready for e
the second primary and fight for s
that which is right.r

race. The secon~d primary comes ~
off on September 8th, and in this
election the same managers will
act. Now let us all go to the
polls and exercise a wise discre- g
tion- Let no man cast a vote to
gratify malice, or be guided in 1
his choice by sympathy. Merit ~
should be the guide entirely. In
the first primary we took no part, r
editorially or individually for or t
against any of the county ,
candidates, except to cast
a vote for the men of
our choice, and in the second
primary we shall adopt the same
course, but we would urge our
readers to turn out in the second a
primary and vote for the men,
who, in their judgment are the 1
best suited for the positions they a
The first battle of ballots en
ded yesterday, and many were s
-laid away in the "also ran" t
class. The successful ones feel S
proud of their triumph, while j
the defeated should not mourn, ,
but -rather console themselves a
with the thought that "there i
may come a time some day," e
and it is better to have fought t
and lost than not to have fought I
at all. The man who ran this v~
time and was defeated, may at |r
another time run and win. there- a
fore we see nothing discourag-i
ing in their defeat, and besides,
we would !advise those entitled I
to a seat on the mourner's bench
to have hope, even should, fate e
decree them to die in despair. C
Because, should they give up
alP hope, two years from now
we might lose their precious five
dollars, which will be as disap- a
pointing to us, as the loss of a
political job is now to them.

Lincoln and Negro Suffrage.
Recently the New York Evening Post
eclared that negro suffage was "the
reatest achieve'ment of Abraham Lin
oln and the Republican party parriy."
n answer to the protest of a correspon
ent, who described the grant of negro
uffrage as "a stupendous error, excus
,ble on no other grounds but war time
assions," the Evening Post declared
hat "the enfranchisemedt of the negro
ras not the result of passion but a
tatesanlike action, certain of 'some
ad results, but justified in that it alone
ved the negro from re-enslavment

'ost further asserted its belief in uni
ersal manhood suffrage "without re

Sto Governor Hahn of conquered

"I barely suggest, for your private

eclared that he was "no in favor of

ates he said: ""There is a physical
ifference between the two (races)
7hich, in my judgment, will probably
rever forbid them living together
:pon the footing of perfect equality."
)oubtless it was for this reason that al
ost to the last he favored the deporta
ion and colonization of the slaves as
oon as they were set free. To a depu
ation of free blacks on August 14, 186i2,

Later, yielding to the dominating
sentiment in the North, Lincoln weak
ened and seemed to surrender his ob- <
jections to the free blacks remaining in i
this country, even going so far, in a
message to congress as to describe that
objection as "largely imaginary, if not 2
sometimes malicious." If he had lived,
it may be that he would have modified s
some of his other positions, carried <
along with the current of radicalism f
and "war time passion." It may be l
that he would have been persuaded to t
countenance immediate and universal t
manbood suffrage for the blacks. But
it is nevertheless a fact that while he
lived he went no further than to sug- i
gest an experiment of negro suffrage
limited to a select few.-'Macon Tele
Big Campaign Meeting.
The county campaign meeting in
Manning had the largest attendance of
any of the political gatherings we have <
had this year. The correspondent of
the News & Courier sent the following 4
Manning, August 21.-Special: The
county campaign closed with a rousing
meeting at the Court House grounds
here today, the attendance of voters be
ing larger than at either the State or
Senatorial campaign meetings. The l
Hon. D. M. Bradham presided over the
meeting and introduced the several
candidates, beginning with the candi
dates for the office of magistrate at
Manning, followed in order by the can
didates for coroner, auditor, treasurer,
supervisor, superintendent of education,
sheriff, clerk of court, House of Reore
sentatives and solicitor. The crowd was
in a good humor and seemed disposed
to jolly the candidates for magistrate I
The cardidates for auditor and treas
urer. A. P. Burgess and L. L. Wells,
having no opposition, only made brief
announcements of their candidacy and
expressed their appreciation of the con
fidence of the people. These two men
are rec-ognized as model officers and are
certainiy a credit to Clarendon County.
There was some spice thrown into
the dissussion between the insumbent 1
supervisor. Mr. R. E McFaddin, and
former Supervisor T. C. Owens, and
there was a real shaking up of things 1
between the incumbent clerk of court, 1
Mr. A. I. Barron, and the former clerk
of court, Mr. J. H. Timmons, who is
again a candidate for the office. After
explaining his regret at being forced*:
to do so, Mr. Barron produced docu
mentary evidence to show dereliction
on the part of Mr. Timmons when he
held the office prior to the election four
years ago, and in reply Mr. Timmons 4
made an explanation that appeared to 4
be entirely satisfactorily to his sup
porters in the crowd.
Following these the five candidates
for the House of Representatives were
introduced in 'the following order: John
R. Dingle, Dr. I. M. Woods, D. Luther
Green, H. B. Richardson and O. C.
Scarborough. There was no material
difference in the views of these several
legislative candidates, all favoring lib
eral support of the higher institutions
of learning and of the schools in the ru
ral communities, and all favoring the
department of agriculture and com
merce, but opposing efforts to introduce
alien immigration. Dr. Woods and Mr.
Green were.both outspoken in favor of
repealing the lien law, while Mr. Scar
borough grew eloquent in protesting
his loyalty to agriculture and all that
pertains' to its welfare. The meeting
was interrupted by rain in the midst of
Dr. Woods's speec'h at 3 o'clock, though
light rain was still falling.
After the candidates fobr the Legisla
ture finished the candidates for solici
tor were given a hearing, and Messrs.
McLaughlin, Stuckey and Stoll each.
spoke for about fifteen minutes. This
was probably the only meeting during
the campaign where the people stood
for over and hour in the rain to hear
the candidates speak.
Before the meeting adjourned Capt.
W. C. Davis, president of the newly or
ganized board of trade, made a spirited
address in explanation of the object and
purpose of the organization, that being
not on~y to build up and extend the bus
iness of Manning. not only as a market
.for tobacco and cotton, but also to make
it to the interest of the people of Clar
