SUPERVISOR M'FADDIN PUTS IT UP TO
The publication in the Southern
Christian Advocate November
12th, relating to the election held
in Cl:irendon on the liquor ques
tion, and in which it is stated that
Supez-visor McFaddin "admitted
that a high official influenced him
not to publish the notice," has
aroused the indignation of Mr.
McFaddin, and he feels that a
grave injury has been done him.
Immediately upon having his
attention called to the editorial in
The Southern Christian Advo
cate, he addressed a letter to its
editor demanding the authority
for the assertion that he "admit
ed that a high official influenced
him not to publish the notice," to
his letter Rev. S. A. Nettles, edi
tor of The Southern Christian
Advocate replied as follows:
Spartanburg, S. C. Nov. 20, 1908.
Mr. Rt. E. McFaddin. Manning, S. C
My dear Sir:
Replying to yours of the 16th. I re
spectfully refer you to Rev. D. A. Phi
lhps and Mr. Joseph Sorott. They will
substantiate what appeared in the Advo
:ate. I copied the figures from some
paper. Naturally I thought them cor
rect. It seems the majority was about
correc c, but the vote was given too large
in both cases.
S. A. NE TT LES. .
Upon receipt of the above let
ter, Mr. McFaddin communicated
with Rev. D. A. Phillips and Mr.
Joseph Sprott, and both deny
telling Mr. Nettles, Mr. McFad
din " admitted that a high official
influenced him not to publish the
notice." The denials are herewith
Manning, S. C., Nov. 23. 1908.
Mr. R. E. MecFaddin. Supervisor, Man
ning, S 'C.
In answer to yours of the 21st inst.. as
to reference to me by the editor of The
Southern Christian Advocate concern
ing certain alleged admissions by you.
I beg to say that the Editor of The Ad
v-ocate, Rev S. A Ne',tles, is certainly
mistaken if he claims that I gave him
any such inform::tion. As to substanti
ating the article referred to, I knew
nothing about it until I saw it copied in
The Manning Times having overlooked
it in the Agvocate.
-D. A. PHILLIPS.
Manning, S. C., Nov. 21, 1908.
Mr. R. E. NecFaddin, Supervisor, Man
ningz, S. C.
I have just received your letter of
even d-u~e berewvith which states, "In
copy "i Southern Christian Advocate of
'the 12Cz inst., under the heading "Pro
hibitica Success." it was charged that1
"the Super visor of Clarendon County
admitted that through the influence of
a pronminent ofice holder he did not or
der special election, etc.. etc." "I de
mandecl the name of the person or per
sons v:'o informed the Editor of The
Advocatre that I made such admissions<
and he gave your name as one of his in
formarn ts and said further that e n
would substantiate the article referred ]
to." To this I reply, I did not inform(
and could not inform "the Editor" that
you m:-.de the admission above named
and, therefore, cannot substantiate that 1
portion of the article for you made no
such admission to me or any one in my
Yours Very Truly,
It will thas be seen that some
body has gravely blundered, and]
*the statement that Supervisor 1
Mc~addin "ad mitted that a high
official influenced him not to pub
lish th'e notice" did not emanate t
from the source the editor of the
SouthernChristianAdvocate gave j1
as the reference who would sub
stantiate the charge made by him. 1
-That Mr. Mc~addin should feel
aggrieved by such a damaging
statement being made in the offi
cial organ:>f the Methodist churcht
- is quite natural, especially when f
there is absolutely no foundation 1
for the charge: any man of pridec
would feel keenly the stigma. ic
THEY NEED AID.
It will be a great help to the
Claren:don delegation for the
count y board of commissioners to
furnisa a full and complete state
ment of the county's financial
condition for publicat .n. so the
public may know exactly how
things a-re, and just how much
more the taxes, if any, will
have to be raised to meet
the d. mands upon the county.
It is suggested by some to doI
away .with the chain gang as ai
means of r-educing expenses, buit
the sne'i people who make this
sugge.tion also say that the peo
ple be :.e become so accustomed
to pay the commutation tax. thatf
;o work the roads. Never
since the days of recon
struction has there been such
1 problem to solve and with
so little encouragement to solve
We take it there is not a mem
ber of the delegation -ho wants
to raise the tax levy. at the same
time.none of them would be will
lug to have a chaotic condition.
It is impossible to have roads and
bridges in travelling condition
without money, and if the present
levy will not raise enough to,
meet the demands, why.a higher
levy must be imposed. The do
ing away with the chaingang
would we believe save some mon
ey, that is, if the people will keep
the roads and bridges up, but. if
they are going to content them
selves with the commutation tax.
then it will not be long before oui
roads and bridges will be in a
seriously bad condition. and when
pubiic affairs get in a ramnshack
led condition it will cost the more
to get in good condition.
There are a number of men
who are good at criticising those
who try to do something for the
public good, who may render the
public a betterservice if they will
devise a way and means which
will aid the delegation in solving
the bad problem which confronts
it. Now is the time to suggest,
do not wait until action is taken
KEEP CHURCH AND STATE SEPARATE.
The northern Methodist chuirch
as such, went into politics good
and strong in the recent election
for the purpose of defeating
"Uncle Joe Cannon," but the old
political war horse was too much
for the clergy-politicians, and the
old fellow was re-elected by an
increased - majority. The tight
however, is still on, the Metho
dist church could not beat Can
non at the polls, they will carry
the warfare to congress and bring
every influence to bear to defeat
him for re-election as speaker.
Will they succeed? The Repub
licans have a good, safe working
majority, but if the Cannon op
position can form an alliance with
the Democrats there is a possi
bility of defeating the man
the Northern Methodist preach
ers are after. What good
will it do the Democratic
minority to defeat Cannon,
some other Republican must be
selected to wield the gavel?
In our judgment, unless the
Democrats can gain something of
advantage to the party, the best
thing they can do, is to sit down
good and hard upon a church
embarking into politics.
There is a strong tendency to
wards using church influence in
politics these days, and unless it
is checked there is no telling how
far-reaching it will become. There
must be in this free American
country a separation of church
and State, and unless they are
kept separate there will be dan
er to free institutions.
The rebuke the Northern Meth
)dist Church received in the re
:ent campaign should serve as an
:ject lesson to prove that Amer
icans will not submit to church
:omination in political affairs.

lotrine, but it strikes us as
ather queer coming as it does
rom a newspaper which was
ounded upon opposition to the
egula~r Democratic party in this

iot always been so straight

Judge Klugh's sentence of W.
1. Thompson was-so severe that
ve are inclined to believe His
lonor permitted his prejudices
o override his sense of justice.
'he idea of imposing a fine of
1500 or 18 months in the peni
entiary for violating the dispen
ary law. Why not impose a
ife sentense? Is the selling of
hiskey a hinous offense? We
hink not. There was a time
vhen it was lawful to sell
thiskey without a license, but
io the sale is prohibited and
he law makes it a misdemeanor
or individuals to deal in liquor,
>ut it is not of that class of
ies which demand such a
Lrastic sentence. We ventue to
*ay that Judge Klugh has given
man convicted of assault and
attery with intent to kill, a
auch lighter sentence.
There is such a tihing as play -
ng for popular plaudits, and~
~oing too far. This man Thomp
on was conv icted in Spartan
urg co~unty of vilolatLe; the dis
>ensary law. It is said he is a
aan of means, the judge inmpo
es a record-br eaking sentence,
hich in our opnion, displayed
rejudice, and if prejudice actn

John Nelson killed Daisy Clark on.
last Thursday night near what is known
as Manning Pineland Section. Nelson
started into the house where the Clark
woman was, with a gun on his shoulder.
As be entered the door he rttempted to
take the gun from oil his shoulder and i
for some unknown reason the gun was
discharged and the whole lond entered
the woman's right side, death being al
most instant. Nelson came to Magistrate
Henry F. Stack about 2 o'clock at night
and gave himself up. The Coroner's
jury's verdict was that Daisy Clark
came to her death from a gun shot
wound intlicted by John Nelson. It

well sifted will be found true.
