asembl)eu and it seeiec] to me thatI
!kearyiv un-half of the crowd were
adie- and they were alright. in the
firs:. place the majority of them were
for Wilson and didn't. mind letting it
be known. and then they were very
-leasant to look at diring the long
lours when roli-call fohlowed rolil-call
with very little result.
Bt thi tnoression of great size dia
nt end with the phystcuica characteris
ics: there was an imprl)ession also of a
reat battle between great inen. The
onvention would take the measure of
_ man in the first half doren sentences
nd if he did no muea-ure up they
wonia have none of him There were
I nmbereof men in the convention eu
tttled to be called great. There were
a number to whom the convention
would listen-men wiho Iy sheer force
,f intelk-ct and persouaiity commanded
mad secureat respect. But there w'as
me ma~n in the conventionl who towerea
above all1 o:hers, a dominant, powerful,
ompel:ng personality: who never
ilacatedl. asked ro favors. fought tooth
nd nal against the bitterest opposition
ad won after defeat. I refer, of course,
o William Jenuings Bryan.
The prevailing desire when the con
ention o;-ened was ic peace and har'
ony. Bryan mad-si the tight for the
ecntlorar'y chairmanship1 and lost, and
he mees of the convention looked
t each other and wondered at what
hey had done There was a very gen
ral fear that Mr. B:-yan would bolt.
here was also a very general fear that
awould seek the rnomination for him
elf. Andi I think a mfajor'ity of the
cnvention thoulght tnat either course
ould be fatal to the parts s success.
And so Mr. Bryan was given a promi
at nositton on the Platform Commit
ee, 'harmony was restored and we
:oved rneacefully along. Clark got a
majotriz . of thie votes and his election
wemed'assured and Mr. Bryan threw
nother hi nb-shell in the shape of his

that by his course he couvtrted inany

ieve that he put strength in the back

S po-iticians. Wilson's support
w te support of individual men, the
cornmou citizen. the non-politial mem
bel of thle delegations who saw in him
theIr opporttunit,y to vote for an ideal.
The ouitook for. Wilson was desperate
on mori titn one occasion. I will give
yIou soiue gossi that I have not seen
in the papers. A Wilson man who was
al opeLrator was preparing to leave
about, eleven o'e!ock Saturday night i
for\ Washigton. He steppred into.a
telgrah olice and heard a niessage I
comIng o':er' the wires to the effeCt
tha. Clark had left Washington for
bdTth.te. This information he car
id to '11'r. Bvau. and at the lirst
poi1 W moment. Congressman Palmer
of l'Lnylvania, iioor manuger of the
Wi't foces, nioved to adjourn and
tis a ried. It was claimed that I
Lhe obj.et of Speaker Clark in coming U
to Daitimore was to make a ringing i
speeC'n hefore tne convention denoune
in;.,r Bryan and defending himself
from Grxan's attack in the hope of
stmpi-, 1n the convention fur him. 1
Butt \Ir. Clark got to Baltimore a few I
mfl' t':s after the convent-ion adjourned,
;o cou:d Jn.,. .ve out an interview to
.he ).rs which appeared along with H
:.e ftrom M:. Buya the next day and l
w.t stampede Monday. As
S thsw simpiy gossip, but It
*un:d like it might be true, and Ii
fo:- oneO anm glid that the convention t
adjourmed before Clark arrived. t
It was a Lreat convention and there f
as a confident feeling throuliout the
convention tbat, its nominee would be
president. and I do believe that this
feeling was more pronounced after the 1
nomination of Wilson than before. e
I nteeve we have an ideal candidate.
I do not, vet believe that Mr. Roose

not .e result will be the same-a Dem- E

THE COMMITTEE'S JUNKET.
South Carolina's dispensary I
investigating committee was to
have held its investigating ses- I
sion in the city of Augusta, Geor
ia, last Monday to receive the j
statement of Col. Thomas B. Fel- j
der, the man who has been fill
ing up the newspapers for the
past two years with all manner e
of threats of exposure of Gover- c
nor Blease, but who, up to date s
has exhibited himself to be little t
removed from a howlhng bluffer; t
if Felder knows anything he has i
kept in from the public, notwith s
standing the fact Governor p
Blease has constantly maintain- t
ed that he has evidence which
should conviet Felder of beimgt
guilty of crime. The committee
:ould not get Felder to come to i
South Carolina with his story, so i
it agreed to go to Felder's home
State, they are anxious to hear
from this man now-the cam- 1
paignl is on. CBut it did not suit
the convenience of somebody to I
have this muich advertised hear
ing last Monday, and therefore
some other day will have to bei
arranged. We cannot see by whati
authority the committee under-j
takes to junket beyond tihe bor
dr's of the State to take testi-i
mony, and especially so, at the
expense of the State, and we are
ertain its trip to Charleston to
look into the washing of the dirty 1
linern in that city. merely at th 1
suggestion of a person whose 1
disappointment has made him
desperate to rule or ruin, was
without legal right, and a misap
popriation of the public funds.
SUPPOSE STUBBS WAS PAID?
The Sumter Item of yesterday 1
editorially says that the father I
of Eugene Hogan claims that he 1
paid Col. W. G. Stubbs of Sum
ter' S100 for his services in secur- 1
iug a parole for his son. If Col. i
Stubbs r-equred pay for his ser- 1
vices it is no0 more than lawyers
will require for a similar ser-vice.
We do not k-now what there is mn
the story, but assuming it to be
true, we can see no high crime1
or' misdemeanor in Stubbs re
quiring pay for his services in
behalf of the young man under
sentence. Stubbs is a member of 1
the Governor's staff, and n o)
(oubt the representations h1 e<
made for the parole of the young
man was listened to by the Gov
ernor but, if we rcmember- the
case, the controlling intluence to
scure the release of young Ho
gan was the prosecutor's attempt
to extort money .tromi the elder
Hogan. Our recollection is that
Zeigler the prosecutor, made a I
written demand upon the father
of Eugene Hogan for money, as
a condition of his joining in an
anneal to the Governor for a
padon: this wiritten demand fr-om
the'executiv~e oflice. Therefore
the chtarge that Walter Stubbs
received'pay fur hits service in
the matter' amounts to nothing~
one way or another. Thler'e is no
cha'ge that Stubbs div'ided this,
money with the Governor, 0r
that thte Glovernor had any know
ledge of .Stubbs' financial interes~t
i the transaction.

THE STATE CAMPAIGN MEETING
There was a tremendous crowd
biere last Wednesday, many com
ng from long distances, some
from the nearoy counties. It was
in over enthusastic crowd but
ts conduct is deplored sincerely.
It would be unjust to place the
blame upon either faction, for
moth sides were wrought up to a
igh pitch, and both sides acted
>adly. The speakers for t h e
ninor offices received a fair hear
ng from their audience, b u t
shiie they were addressing the
people many were walking about
.vaiting for t h e gubernatorial
;iants-the greatest interest was
ii candidates Blease and Jones.
Long before the meeting open
m both of these gentlemen were
urrounded by their admirers.
nd each received flattering en
:ouragement. County Chairman
\. J. Richbourg presided, but he
ost control of the crowd as soon
s Judge Jones was introduced.
'here was cheering and counter
heering,. and it was some time
efore J udge Jones could begin
is remarks; his f r ie n d s in at
empting to drown t h e voices
aised for Blease, only added to
he tumult. Had the chairman
aken a firm hold upon the loud
anged element, and given it to
,nderstand that lie proposed to
ave an orderly meeting or none
.t all, perhaps conditions would
ave been different. The noisy
nes which was composed largely
f boys, who were having "a big
ime." would have subsided had
he chairman gotten a tirm grip
rom the beginning, but when he
id not, the tumult grew from
ad to worse until it was next to
opossible for him or any one
Ise to stop it.
Judge Jones endeavored to
uiet the crowd and, in this Gov
rnor Blease endeavored to aid
Lim by coming forward to ask
or a respectfull hearing for his
pponent, but neither could do
nytbing, the Judge made his
peech however, under the great
st of difficulties, and while he
vas speaking hurrahs for Jones,
vould bring forth hurrabs for
lease, until it became such a
ivalry between the two, that
b was almost impossible for
udge Jones to be. heard many
eet away from the stand. The
udge finished his speech and
vas applauded lustily.
Governor Blease tried for sev
ral minutes to address t h e
rowd, every time he undertook to
ay something there was a per
ect bedlam of noises. He stood
here awaiting for the subsid
og of the terrific sounds until he
aw that it would be almost mir
,culous for him to speak, so he
ook a hand primarily of his sup
)orters made his bow, and left
he stage. In this we think he
cted discreetly, for had he re
aained standing much longer it
s our opinion, he might have
>recipitated trouble. His friends
>revailed upon him to address
e voters in the afternoon, and,
,fter dinner he went to the court
iouse to be greeted by several
tundred, but instead of making
,speech he merely announced
hat he was informed the Mayor
iad issued an order, and that he
eared if he attempted to speak
t might cause trouble, and be
ng the Chief Executive of the
tate he would not like to cause
>r precipitate unpleasantness and
nvolve his friends, he then re
urned to the. hotel, and some
ime later he accepted an invita
ion to join some friends in an
~utomobile ride to Sumter.
With regard to the Mayor's or
[er Governor Blease had been
isinformed. Mayor Bradham
leplored the happenings of the
lay, and had the Governor at
empted to speak in the afternoon
ie would have done his utmost
o see that he had a respectful
udience. We can understand
iow the governor could have
>een misinformed about this mat
er, there were a number of
~reatly excited and wrought up
eople, many of them making in
liscreet remarks on the streets,
Lud some in their anxiety, be.
ieving the Mayor is not a sup
orter of Governor Blease, jump
id to the conciusion that lhe was
n sympathy with the disturbers,
>ut in this they were unjust to
iin. Mayor Bradbam regardless
>f his personal political 'prefer
mncc would have esercised his
>fice in an impartial manner.
ome may ask why he did not
;top the disturbance in the morn
ng"? We answer, that the coun
v chairman of the meeting had
&le charge, and did not call for
;he aid of the town authorities,
1ad he done so they would have
issisted him, notwithstanding
,his, the Mayor and somec of the
:ouncilmien were on the grounds,
tnd together with the police did
shat they could to~urge the peo
>e to give speakers a respectful
Thre~ is nio imau in Ciareiidon

nembers o f the counci K We make
;his statement because it is due
bese gentleomen. and we feel sat
stied that had the unfortunate
t i a i r beea pr-operly h andled
'romi the beginning, Clarendon
would not be forced t > suffer the
lumiliation of having been dis

Southu Carolina. and the other
zentlemen of the camnpaign party.
We have beeni living ini Man
iig many years, in fact, the best

~itch this people, it is the very
irst time we have ever known'

thank the correspondent of the
News and Courier, Mr. S. E.
Boney, who realized the condi
tions, and who appreciated the
feeling of the vast majority of
Clarendon's fair minded people
for his very fair and impartial
account as it appeared in Thurs
day's issue of his newspaper. We
shall also state that had we been
present when the Governor told
the crowd of the information he
received with regard to Mayor
Bradham we would have been
only too glad to disabuse. his
mind of it, because we know of
our own knowledge that his
sense of fair play would have re
volted at conniving at such an
outrage, and too, his conduct
upon the grounds contradicted
such information. The first inti.
mation of what the Governor
said with regard to the Mayor
reached us tLrough the columns
of the News and Courier.
Under excitement people will
do and say things they would not
do, and say ordinarily: the Gov
ernor regarded himself harshly
treated, he no doubt was not in
an amiable frame of. mind, be

friends become apprehensive,
and under the excitement ran to
him and told him much which
bad its foundation in imagina
tion, but he knew some of these
men, they are his friends, and
he had reason to believe what
they told him, hence there is to
be consideration for an indiscreet
remark, or a sharp answer from
a man in these circumstances. He

The supporters of either of the

aften are indiscreet in their re
marks to one another, there is no
need, it is absolutely senseless
for neighbors to fall out about

vice is for every man to make up

to be dragged into an argument.
GONZALES DESERVES RECOGNITION.
If any single individual is en
itled credit for the Wilson nom
ination it should be given to
Captain W. E. Gonzales, editor
f the Columbia State. In and out
of season he kept the fires of
Wilson enthusiasm at a glow,
when the cause seemedgone Gon
6ales fougbt the harder, and al
bhough he was not chosen a del
egate to the convention he went
to Baltimore, counselled with the
leaders, and was one of Gover
nor Wilson's most trusted friends.
[f South Carolina is to be recog
nized at all, and President Wilson
aoes not invite Gonzales to a
place in his cabinet we shall al
ways think he should.
Roosevelt's convention h a s
been called to meet in Chic'ago
August 5th. The call is signed
by a number of Republicans, and
three Democrats, among whom
are Julian Harris, of Atlanta, a
son of Joel Chandler Harris.
There are also among the sign
ers a number of prominent news
paper editors and owrners.
Roosevelt's new party ought
to be welcomed by the managers
of the Democratic party, it can
only draw from the Republican
ranks, which should make the
success of Wilson and Marshall
the more certain.
Your attention is hereby directed to
fact that there is a vacant Teacher's
Scholarship in the South Carolina Un
iversity. Examination will be held at
the court house on July 12th, to deter
mine the winner. The total money
value of the scholarship is $158 a year.

young man who desires aid in obtaining
an educatson. The winner of the
scholarship will he expected to teach a
certain length of time after graduation.
The time is now short and every young
who has any am'bition in this direction
should make the effort. Every reader
of this article should see that some
young man of your acquaintance has
his attention called to it.
