THE CAMPAIGN AS BEGUN.
The State campaign opens to
day, and from now on the canoi
dates for the various State offices
which have opposition will be
galivaiting over the country tell
ing the "dear people" why they
should select them. The princi
pal in- - vest will be in the race for
governtr. There are a number
of good men seeking this high
position and of course each one
would like to be the favored one.
Col. Featherstone is an old timer
in the campaigning line, and
knows how to say things that will
make his hearers laugh, he has
always on hand some good anec
dotes which he gets off with good
is alsb a man who can catch the
ear of the crowd with his pleas
entries. He is a good speaker and
in our opinion will acquit himself
well on the stump. Col. Blease
is without doubt one :,f the best
speakers for these occasions in
the State, having had experience
and being equipped with a
thorough knowledge of the tiscal
conditionsof the government, and
being a close student of the affairs
of the State. will till his speeches
wth vigorous comments and crit
icism. Col. Blease made a splen
did run for governor two years
ago, and we do not doubt but that
his friends will stand by him in
the oresent race.
Mr. F. H. Hyatt is a new man
in the political arena, heretofore
he has aligned himself with the
good roads, and husiness devel
opment campaigns. He is a high
ly reputed busmness man, one of
the business leaders in the State
and recognized as a splendid
fmiancier, and a good speaker.
Maj. J. G. Richards while never
before a candidate for a State of-n
fice, is well known by reputation
for his work in the legislature,
-where he has served ma.ny years.
Maj. Richards made a reputation
by his persistent efforts to have
2the lien law repealed, his leader
ship in the 'tights for the State
dispensary when that institution
was being assailed, and when the
dispensary ship was sinking he
reained true and loyal until its
hulk had disappeared, and then
h. e leaped from it on tothe Pro
hibition raft, upon which he has
~assumed a leadership. This can
be truly said of Richards, it mat
ters not which cause he espouses,
'he is ardent in his support.
The next of special interest is
the race for railroad commission
er. Hon. 0. C. Scarborough of
Clarendon will in our opinion be
the leading candidate. He has
served two terms in tbe legisla
~ ture, and while in that body dem
Sonstrated his ability to grasp
Squestions which affect the traffic
conditions. He was the chairman
of theariculturalcommittee, and
through this committee he was
- enable to secure legislation which
gave great protection to the farmn
ers. Mr. Scarborough has made
a study of freight rates, railroad
schedules, and we believe the
people at larg recognize his
thorough flttness and will give
him their support. He has oppo
sition from Colleton-and Green
ville, also from Columbia, but
while all of his opponents are
good men they are not so well
qud*ified for this particular place
as is Scarborough, in our opinion.
The adjutant general's office is
another one of the places where
there is somewhat of a scramble
for, but since the incumbent has
demonstrated his utter untitness,
and his assistant has acted so
silly, we will take for ours one of
the other aspirants, which we
have not as yet decided upon.
Now what will be the issues? Are
these candidates going to try to
pussy-toot their way into dnice
by making as little sound as pos
sible? The tendency in some
quarters is to steal bases, as they~
say in base ball, that is, to say as1
little and be as indefinite as pos
sible relying upon the prehimi
nary work that has been done in
advance by the aadresses at pic
nics, Sunday school celebrations,
and similar occasions. H owever
this will not satisfy all.
It is our oninion. the masses
will not consent for any candidate1
to go into office straddling any is-i
sue, or with a hush policy, they
will demand that he speak out
loud and clear his attitude upon!
those matters which are in their
minds. No. it needs no Solomion'
to discern the tendency to xlay
the hush game on the liquor ques
tion, but arc glad to see Col.
Featherstone who poses as the
Prohibition leader havethe frank
ness in his Sum meriand speech
to make the question of Prohibi
tion and Local Option the theme
of his address, not so. however.
with some of the others. Richards
-w.e think it was who deprecated
the question being iniected into
the discussion. Featherstone wvas
right. the liquor issue is not set
tled in South Carolina, nor will it
be until it is settled right, but
unt then, there s no us for as
pirants fr office to try to mislead.
either the Prohibitionists or the
W.thin the past few days we
learn that a certain candidate who
has been regarded the product of
a portion of the prohibition ele
ment. hascontided tosome friends
that .e is aL local optionist, but if
elected he wil! ote for state-wide
nrobibition. The friends does not
quite understand how en- can be
a Local Optionist, at the same
time a state wide Prohibitionist,
nor can we understand. The two
questions are like oil and water,
they will not mix. and no man
can be for both.
Therefore our friend Richards
should not deprecate the injec
tion of the liquor question by Col.
Featherstone, for it is upon that
very issue Featherstone brought
himself into prominence in th
State. and it is with that question
he has been entertaining thous
ands at schools, Sunday schools,
and churches. until he has made
the subject a part of the thought
of the people of the State: take
it out of their minds, and sure
enough it would leave the people
to select their governor with
nothing but his looks to decide
by, and our friend Richards can
not afford to take such a chance
with McLeod, Blease, Feather
stone and Hyatt. for each andl
every one of them have it on him
The same situation remains in
the cou:.ties: there are no divid
ing issues so far as we have been I
able to ascertain, if the liquor
question is eliminated: therefore
the question naturally arises,
why should there be any conten
tion, and why should not the peo
ple be let alone and make their
selection without certain men be
ing so active in behalf of their
choice, and in their activity in
dulge in all manner of disparag
ing hints against the man they
are trying to defeat. If these men
who are so much interested in
bringing about the defeat of an
announced candidate, they should
have the honesty and candor to
let those they are talking to,
know whether their opposition is
based upon some cowardly per
sonal spleen, personal agrandize
ment, (an axe to grind) or is it
because they have knowledge that
makes the candidate they are op
posing ntit: if they are in po
ssession of such knowledge, it is
their duty to make the same
known in an open manly way. It
is due the people that they should,
in thE- proper way, be informed
whether or not a candidate offer
ing himself has been guilty of
any condue: which would make
his election an imposition.
It has frequently happened in
he past, and we have bad some
hints of it in the present cam
paign. that scurvey tactics are
being used by men who are en
deavoring to accomplish the d
feat of a certain candidate; these
mten do their work by presummng
upon the ignorance of those
whose minds they are trying to
poison. they tell them some cock
and bull "hory which they conjure
up in theiri own imagination, just
enough to create a suspicion, and
by this means poison the minds of
those who may listen to them. We
know of one of these gadflies who
ad better take warning and de
sist, lest he wake up some morn
ing fighting to save that which
be has accumulated so rapidly.
Tore was a time when men re
sorted to violence to punish his

There has reached us from Mr.
. H. Hyatt, of Comumbia. an
anoneement of his candidacy
for governor, and enclosed with
this announcement is his photo
raph. We can stand M r.
Hatt's announcement and can
ear with the photograph,
ut when it came to th e
ther enclosures,-letters from
Eev. E. 0. Watson. pastor of
the Washington Street Methodist
hurch, and another from Rev.
. H. Thacker. we regarded it the
imit. Mr. Hyatt is no doubt a
very liberal contributor to the
ethodist church, and his pastor,
Rev. E. 0. Watson, no doubt is
his friend. We will go farther and
say, that Mr. Hyatt is a good
hurchman, as well as a good
usiness man. iut when ha in
okes the aid of his religious deC
nmination for his campaign to
political office. he and his
friends make a mistake: if there
is anything that tends to bring.
church into trouble it is for its
pastor to use the influence of his
lerical robes to uruge his co-de
iominationalists into a seeming
ompact for the support of one
of them politically. or to, in any
way call upon a free people to
vote for any man because of be
ing a member of his church.
We know Mr. Hyatt and have
also met the pastor of the Wash
ington Street Methodist church,
both are good men. but both are
aking a fatal error in invoking
h in!!uence of the Methodist
hurch for votes. In some coun
tries in the dlays tha t ha ve passed.

iairs spiritual, they endeavored
to control affairs temiooraL anid
to dominate the politica! affairs:
they succeeded for a time. but
only for a time. When they had
the temporal affairs in their
hands, governments became des
potic. corrupt. and unbearable,
with the result. that the priests
were hurled from power, and
ever since, it has been-i the warn

Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., was
married last Monday, in Nexv

Greenville boy, is to wed Miss
Ethel Roosevelt. Williams was
quite a favorite at the White

Well, here's luck to you "Jim."
At the last momentI Barney B.
Evans has entered the race for
Attorney General against Hon.
J. Fraser Lyon. We sincerely
hope Mr. Lyon will remain in
his office. and attend to the
duties thereof. The people
throughout the State will take
care of him. in fact, they will
think more of him if he refuses
to get into a controversy.
Ex-President Roosevelt is now
an editor, and his writings will
be watched with more interest
than that of any other who at
tempts editorial work. It would
be great if the hunter could be
induced to give up magazine
work for that of the newspaper.
Editor Roosevelt at the newspa

a moving with his pen. As edi

The cost of the Boyd-Brock
controversy was indeed an ex
pensive, and a disgusting hum
bug. If there is any way to
make these rival principals pay
the expense it ought to be done,
for we cannot see why the tax
payers of the State should have
the burden put upon them. The
taxpapers have enough to pay
without aiding in the whims of
an -incapitated old man or the
aspirations of a youngster whose
fondness for playing soldier has
led him to forget to make a
proper accounting when hand
ling the pe'ople's money.
The death of Judge C. G. Dantz
er, of Orangeburg. is a great
loss to the State of South Caro
lina, not only to the bench and
bar, but to the masses as well.
We regarded him one of the
fnest characters that has loomed
up in public life in man~y years,
a man with a clear understand
ing of the law, a thorough
knowledge of those things which
are needed to make a State. and
with that bigness of heart that
made him easy, but of respectful
approach. Judge Dantzler's death
is a sad blow to the country. A
just judge, a scholar. a gentle
man and a patriot has gone to

this Union two additional states.,
New Mexico and Arizona, here

that Arizc-na will be a Demo

been a long drawn battle: those

put the blame on the R"epu bhcans

and for prohibition to the advo
