of Mr. Legare's friends accom

It is to be deplored that a cam
paign meeting should not be con
ducted in an orderly manner.
Every candidate has a right to be
treated courteously. true. it is
hard for the chairman of a politi
cal meeting to have the same or
der as they ought to have at a
church meeting,. but at the same
time the people attending these
meetings should not foiget they,
are not compelled to sit and listen
to a speaker, but when they do
remain they should listen with re
spectful attention. Regardless of
Mr. Legare's popularity at Coi
leton, we desire to remind those
people at Walterboro. and
throughout the district. that Mr..
Lesesne is a gentleman. and is
within his rights when he seeks
Mr. Lesesne came home from
his campaign tour Sunday morn
ing, and in reply to an inquiry
from us he said, that the account
of the Walterboro meeting as
written in the 'News and
Courier was considerably bi
ased, evidently the reporter
was a partisan. He said there'
was a number of Charleston
men in the audience, and among
them was J. Elr'ore Martin, Char
leston's political chief. That the
chairman of the meeting was in ~
-dignant at the conduct of some
men who were making a lot ,
of noise, and he demanded that
they should cease and give th
speaker a resnectful hearing, he
also stated that all of the
noise was not being made
by Colleton people. Mr. Les-t
esne further said that at Char. t
leston Saturday night he was giv
en generous applause. and a most
courteous hearingr. Mr-. Lesesne.
is of th? opinion, based on what ,
he was told by men at Walterboro,
the result of the meeting was
in his favor.
The meeting yesterday at St.
George. the county seat of Dor
chester. according to the dispatch ~
this morning was a fairly well at
tended one, and that Mr. Lesesne
was giveni an attentive and re
spectful hearing. and at the con
clusion of his speech he was7
heartily applauded. The News
and Courier's correspondent. Le

LET THE VOTERS ALONE.
Why pretend to trust the peo
Se iIf thtV are goVng to b1 pester
ed ml ht and day with heelers?
This is a ques4tion which should
appeal to thinking people. The
Democratic party requires candi
(ates to go before the voters. and
designates the place. and the
ti me to meet these voters. This
being the case where is the jus
tice in making this requirement,
and then have candidates. going
about to get pledges for votes be
fore the time for the meetings tix
ed by the Democratic party. If the
voters are to be pledged in ad
vance. the meetings are a waste
of time. But what is more out of
reason. is the method of sending
out emissaries urging people to
vote for the man the emissaries
represent, and, if they cannot get
the promise of a vote. they beg
th.e man they mlectioneer, not to
work for his choice. Of all the
cheeky things we have heard was
the fellow who went to a friend
of a certain candidate, knowing
the man to be as staunch as steel,
proposed to him that he refrain
from helping his friend. while he,
probably for private gain or
spleen, be Permitted to go among
the people of that section urging
the cause of the candidate in
whose interests lie has left his
business, to teach people with
more judgment and principle than
he has, how to vote. The people
he was canvassing however.
would not sell their manhood, nor
would they go back on a friend
who has proven himself such.
When this election is over it is
our judgment the people will by
their votes, demonstrate fully
that the day for the heeler and
striker is no longer, and when men
want public oftice. they must rely
upon the confidence they have
geritd from the people who re
gadtheir vote a sacred right to
handle not at the dictate of polit
ical tramp. but a right handed
down to them from those who
bought the privilege with their
blood: a heritage atrue man must
regard too sacred to be used as a
pawn oy some unscrupulous fel-'

few paltry dollars is his idol, and
