The inclement weather kept the

brought them out from far and near
and the town had a busy air about it.

of Representatives, J. H. Burgess, D.1
Sam Corbett. Congress, Edward W.1
Hughes, J. G. Padgett, J. H. Peurifoy,
G. F. von Kolnitz, R. H. Whaley.
It is all right for men to have their
choice of candidates for office, but it is
not right to carry their eagerness to the
extent of making all manner of offen
sive remarks about those who do not
think as they do. The candidates are
with us sometimes, but the local citi
zens are with us always.
Tast Friday night there was a politi
cal rally at the old court house in Man
ning at which Rev. D. Sam Corbett
was the spee.ker. A consioerable
crowd was present and from the lusty
cheers that rent the air, the speaker
must have said something which ap
pealed to or amused his hearers.

The candidates are abroad in the land
seeking the votes of the people. but, if
the weather continueb to Lie fair so the
soiled can be tilled, we think the voters
will feel more interested in getting in
their corn than they will in the success
ful candidate for office. The corn must
be planted, but. the office seekers never
fail. We hope, however, that Claren
don will turn out well next Tuesday to
express its choice at the balot box as
to who should represent this district in
Congress, and who should represent the
county in the lower House of Represen
tatives at Columbia.
Quite a sensation was created by the
finding of an infant on a ditch. bank on
the outer edge of town in the neiehbor
hood of the old brick yard near the Gus
Collins place. The Coroner summoned
a jury and held an iuquest, which by
the way has not yet concluded its la
bors. An autopsy was made by Dr. W.
S. Harvin and he decided the child to
be a mullato. its left arm had been torn
from its body and it was otherwise
mangled. everv effort will be made to
find the mothe- of the child. The baby
ived after it reached the world, and if
this is so then it was murdered.
A handsome banner has been select
ed to be presented to the county school
winning the greatest number of prizes
in the various contests in the Field Day
exercises, April 18th. Let every teach
er get busy. This banner will be dis
played in a conspicuous place in Man
ning for a few days to advertise the
winning school after which it will be
held by that school for a year, or until
some other school in like exercises wins
it. Let every country school and its
patrons wake up to the good that this
bit of rivalry will bring about. A full
program of Field Day exercises will
ippear again in The Times next week.
There was a most horrible murder
:ommitted last Sunday night on the
plantation of Mr. Clarence Mathis,
ibout 2 miles west of Manning. Bright
Mack, a negro, who was regarded harm
Less, became jealous of attentions of
ther men to his wife, Neather, and
proceeded to butcher her in a most
>rutal manner. Those who saw the
lead woman say she was slashed about
Ze face and neek almost severing the
ead. Coroner Gray held an inquest
Lnd while the jury was making its in
vestigation Bright Mack confessed the
rime, and said his wife asked him to
kill her because he accused her of infi
lelity. Mack was lodged in jail to await
;be sessions court. We are told the ne
ro is not of a strong mind which may
probably have something to do with his
tearful crime. This is the third inquest
;he Coroner has held in this commun
ty within the past. week.
On last Thursday an aftermath of a I

pistol shot wound of one darkey, and c

Taking all things into consideration.
he vote I received in the two primaries
ast year was very good, and after the
apse of nearly a year I trust that a
arger number of our people will see

My principal effort would be in the

The Campaign Meeting.
There was a largo crowd in Manning
yesterday to hear the candidates, and
it was indeed a representative gather
ing from all over the county.

caflld thc metting to order by intro
duci!: Rv. J. T. ft. Major of Summer
ton to begiu the services with prayer.
The first sp-aker was Hon. George
F. Von Kolnitz. He had a number of
frieuds in the audience who greeted
him applause, and after maging his
acknowledgements for this reception.
and the presence of the ladies he enter
ed into the discussion: He said there
are ro issues between the candidates,
that all of them stand upon the same
platform-the Democratic platform as
adopted at Baltimore. He said all of
the candidates are men of high char
acter, and that nothing has been said
to reflect upon the political or personal
character of any. The speaker said
when he first came into this county he
was met with the report that he was a
Republican, the report was not true,
he had uever voted a Republican
ticket in his life. In 1890 be op
posed the free silver plank in the Dem
ocratic platform, and opposed Bryan
for ,hit reasou, he did not do so as a
[tt, ub-hlitan,. but as a gold Democrat.
Ft. h:-; heard it said that he would have
no iulu.'uce at Washington because of
his position against Bryan, and he read
a letter from Senator Tillman. which
aid that lie was % rong and should have
stood by the Demecratic party, but that
le believe he acted conscientiously. He
also made the point that notwithstand
utz his position against Bryan the peo
ple of Charlestoa endorsed him by
electing him to the legislature. He laid
much stress upon Tillman's letter,
which said that he had no interest in
this campaign, but that he should not
have advocated the election of McKin
ley against W. J. Bryan, and should
have stood steadfast by the Democratic
party. The most of Mr. Von Kolnitz's
ime was taken up with his explanation
>f his acts in 1896. but he did manage to
et in enough to let his bearers know
that he favored all the planks of the
party platform, was interested in farm
ing, was for a tariff for revenue only,
and if elected would be unswerving in
his duty to the people of this State. and
especially the First District. Mr. D. M.
Bradham sought to have Mr. Von Kol
itz's time extended and was joined in
this by Col. Padgett, but Mr. Von Kol
itz respectfully declined and returned
The next speaker was Solicitor J. H.
eurifoy, who began by cracking some
very good jokes, and said that wher,
e first offered for the office of Solici
or of his circuit he was adyised against
t because of the fear he would stand 1
o chance on account of the large vote
n Charleston county, but he proved
hat he did have friends in that county,
Ls he beat the former solicitor over
1,000 votes in the city and over 2500 in
he circuit. Mr. Peurifoy read two
rticles from The Times which re
erred to Mr. Hughes, the one signed
;'Clarendon"l he thought was 'unfair
>ecause it was in the interest of one of
ais opponents. Mr. Peurifoy could have t
iad a similar article published in "his
nterests in The Times.had his friends
one as the friendof Mr. Hughes did and
;o could have every other candidate in
he race. The communication is laud
tory of'Mr. Hughes and published as
. communication from another and not 1
is an expression of The Times editor,
,vhich every intelligent reader knows. i
dr. Peurifoy either does not under
tand the work of a newspaper, or he I
bought that he would create a pre
udice against one of his opponents by t
rving to claim unfair treatment, but
dfr. Peurifoy could have had his friends
write articles for The Times in his t
~avor too. He said that he did not in- 1
~end to drag von Kolnitz's record be
rore the voters, as he thought that it
vas well known to every reading Tiem
crat in this country, but as hebrought I
t forward himself, together with a
ardon or parole from Senator
illman, he would refer to it,
:hat Von Kolnitz has not been faith
ul to the democratic cause because he.
~enfesses that he opposed the party
~latform in 1896, and stumped the
~ountry for McKinley against Willian
ennings Bryan. did all in his power 1
o prevent the election of the Demo
~ratic party leader, and Tillman's let
:er he banks on reiterates the fact
hat has been charged against Von.
EColnitz party record, Tillman does
owever tell him that while he did
vrong he believes that he acted con
;cientiously. Then Mr. Peurifoy
aunched off into a discussion of the
~everal planks in the party platform,
Lnd argued that he favoreai all of them,
which includes drainage, good roads
nd everything which will benefit the
ountry, the farmer especially. He
;aid that Hughes has been running for I
)fice since he left college, was a can
idate for Mavor and withdrew, was
,candidate for Judge and did not
ucceed, he was also a member of
e legislature. He said H u gh e s
as a nice man, but he was going to ~
)eat him for congress. He referred to I
man by the name of Beard who he 1
aid was creating the impression that
overnor Biease was in favor of
lughes, and he read a telegram sent to
he candidate's brother who is living at
Valterboro, which in effect said that
io one was authorized to speak for theT
3overnor, that if he lived in this dis- 1
rict he would vote for his cousin's hus
,and. He then took a turn at the othr
~andidates. He said that Whaley thinks
-ou ought to send him to Congress be
ause he was a member of the legisla- 1
:ure, and he presided over that body,
ut he asked what had Mr. Whaiey
ver done in his service in the legisla
:ure, why, said the speaker, anybody
an preside over the sessions of the leg
slature. He said that Whaley thinks
Lie is deserving because he went to the
Baltimore convention, and toted a ban- I
ler and hurrahed for Wilson, and that 1
Wilson shook hands with him when he
served on the notification committee.
haley claims he has influence with
he leaders, but said the speaker, when 1
Wilson was elected Whaley's friends
boosted him for the District Attorney
ship, but WVhaley with his influence
ould not get the place. M1r. Peurifoy
said he worked on his father's farm,
then went to Wolford college and made
himself what he is by his own efforts.
e spoke -confidently of his chances,
nd urgea his hearers to go out to vote 1
Then followed Col J3. G. Badgett. He
too, paid a nice tribute to the ladies
present and urged them to use their in-c
fuence for him, but not like his friend 1
Von Kolnitz, he would prefer the votes
f the men at this time to the good
wishes of the ladies. Col. Padgett tooka
p r. Von Kolnitz's defense of himself
for his attitude toevards the Democratic
party in 18%i, andl criticised it in a
masterful manner. He said that Von I
Kolnitz confesses to having gone out int
the West and at the North to makeI
speeches against the nominee of the
Demor. .Ic party when it first placed
William JTennings Bryan in the lead,
nd now he comes here with excuses.
ol. Padgett paia William Jennings
Iryan a high tribute, and laid much I
stress on the falacy of Von Kolnitz's po
ition in coming now to claim the votes
of the Democratic party to send hirm to
Ccngress. The speaker said he had 1
'ver fooled anybody, for a man who t
will fool you is unworthy of trust. He
turned upon Peuritoy and said that this t
was the first time lhe had heard of thei
Hlase telegram, and he asked the oth- i
er candidates if they had, all of them 4
responded No. Then he told the audi- 1
ence that Peurifoy, notwithstanding I
that he had married a cousin of Gover
nor Blease, did not vote for Blease, and
is now trying to get out the impression t
tat Blease is supporting him, but it I'
will fool no one. The speaker argued
the necessity to senid a :nan to Congress
who was in sympathy with the masses,
and that he was the man. He said he
would devote his attention to getting
the govenment to cean out the rivers
and streams. the swamp lands could be
drained with government aid and make
this country what it should be. He said
that since the country has been defor
ested the health is impaired and the
remedy is drainage, which can be done
by getting the machinery now being
used by the government to be put into
operation in our low lands. Col. Pad
gett like the others stands upon the
party platform and pledges to work for
an income tax and a inheritence tax.
which if it is made into law will add
much to the treasury and relieve the
poor man from a considerable amount
of his present burders. He also favors
an increase on the tobacco tax which
would raise the revenue to a large ex
tent and not be felt by the people, just
as was done during the Spanish-Ameri
can war. He asked that city and coun
ty lines be wiped out and the people
elect their Congressman from the view
point of fitness that now was the oppor
tune time to elect a man from the coun
try to Congress if there was one in the
race qualified. He then gave an account
of his career, his early struggles for an
education, and his success as a lawyer
%nd a citizen.
Hon. Edward W. Hughes was intro
duced, and he answered his opponents
who made capital of hi3 having been a
:andidate for Mayor and withdrew, and
he circumstances connected with his
:andilacy for district Judge. He said
bis name had been presented to the
President when it became known the
President was disregarding party ties
n selecting Judges for the South, that
1e was endorsed by the Bar and by a
arge number of the business interests,
ncluding the bankers, as a suitable man
D> be placed upon the bench, that when
ie found his friend H. A. M. Smith
vas also being urged he saw it would
ye useless for both of them to try and
2e therefore with his friends, helped
o push the claims of Judge Smith who
s regarded one of the ablest Judges in
he State, and ranks very high as a
ederal Judge. Judge Smith is a true
d tried Democrat. An insinuation
ias been made by some that he has
een trying to win votes on account of
is friendly relations to Governor
31ease, why, there is nothing to this,
t is true that he is seeking the votes
>f all men and of whatever factions, he
s not in the race tied to any man, what
ie wants is votes from those who be
ieve he is a proper man to vote for,
Lod as to the Peurifoy telegram this
s the first time he had heard of it,
vhich does not amount to anything one
vay or another. He told his hearers
hat if they had kept up with the
-eports of the meetings they would see
,he other candidates from day to day,
ried to absorb the ideas he had ad
ranced at the beginning of this cam
>aign. He solicits votes because he is
amiliar with the needs of the people,
nd will work for them earnestly. It
vas he who began the agitation for .
rainage and government aid for good
oads, and it was he who has advancod -
he idea of interesting the government
o establish a system of rural credit as
s the custom in other conntries where
t works successfully and the farmers
ibtain money at a very law rate of in- I
erest. This could be done through
he national banks being authorized to
nake these loans, or through the pos
al savings banks, and it would reach
he very people needing such aid. Mr. |
lughes said the tariff is a paramount
ssue with the Democratic party, it is
edged to reduce the present iniquit
us tariff, so that those who have to
my will not be enriching the already
ich by making poorer the already
ioor. If elected he will give his busi
ess mind to laboring for this reduc
ion and the upbuilding of the country,
specially the bection of the State
rhere the low lands abound and need
he water taken from them. He said
he farmers' free list bill which was
~etoed by the President cost the farm- l
rs $390,000,000, and by figures and
acts he presented the tariff question
n an able manner. At the conclusion
f his speech he was liberally applaud-1
d. Several gave applause who had be
ore they heard him, spoke of favoring
ome other canaidate.
The last of the congressional canii-.
lates was Hon. R. S. Whaley. He
tarted of by saying that "things had.
roken loose today, somebody has
hrown an apple into the cage," but
aid he, "I did not do it," then turned
o Mr. von Kolnitz, and in a manner
inderstood by his hearers, s a i di
'I am delighted with the consistent
emocracy of Mr. von Kolnitz, and that
eurifoy is such a big Blease man, that
ughes was a farmer, that Padgett was
was a great man. He heard today that .
-on Kolnitz was a farmer and that he
was sent to the legislature, but he
tid not tell the people there
as a Senate and a Lower House, and 1
hat is known as the Third House
he lobby. He did not tell of his con
ection witb the defeat of certain
easures in the interest of the farmers
when the fertilizer companies he rep- I
esented were to be affected. Mr.
haley argued that Mr. Von Kolnitz]
as made a record which makes him
orry for him. Bryan read out of the
arty Ryan, Belmont and Tammany
ecause of their treacbery to the Dem
cratic party in 1896, these men refused 4
o support the democracy because of
he money question, they s o 1d.
t the party by giving t he ir
upport to aid the election of the Re-,
ublican Presiaent, and Bryan, when
e saw these men in the Baltimore con-,
ention, had the bravery to denounce
nd he tried to have them expelled
rom the convention characterizing
heir acts as the treachery of 1896. You,
Le said, should send a man to Congress
those democracy is above suspicion,
otwithstanding the commutation Sen
tor Timan has given to Mr. Von Kol
iitz. He has an admiration for the man 2
ho can toot his own horn. Peurifoy
ells you what a great record he has2
aade as Solicitor, but I tell you that I
ardly knew he was the Solicitor, had 2
t not been for one or two cases in which
was employed I could not have told 2
here was a Solicitor. The record does
Lt show so much for Mr. Peurifoy as
e claims for himself, and where there
ras a decent defense his record is nil. 1
Vhy, says the sneaker, Mr. Peurifoy
racked a fe w jo~kes and that was all I
here is in his speech. He then referred
o the telegram which was sent to Peu- I
'ifoy's brother, but it did not say he
ould vote for this candidate if he liv- 3
d in the district because he was the
est fitted man for the place, but he 3
oud vote for his cousin's husband who
id not support Blease. He then creat
d considerable laughter at the expense
f Cl. Padgett, and Hughes raisingJ
,uckwheat at his mountain home in
orth Carolina. He says to hear HughesJ
ne would think he has been traveling
nd no doubt he has traveled from J
yrtle Beach to North Carolina and
rm hell to breakfast, He criticised 3
ughe's position on the tariff, by tell
ng his hearers that Hughes failed to J
elI them that he was at the head of the
aily-Lebby Company the largest hard-J
rare, and The David Outfittipg Comp
ny, the largest clothing concern in
~harleston. Hughes was appointed As
itant District Attorney by his friend,
udge Brawley, and later Referee in
ankruptcy, snould Judge Brawley die1
there was Hughes to get the brain
orm to run the Congress
Mr. Whaley said there is a situation
n the district which needs, a clear
hiner. The Democrats are in power
nd you need a man to take up the du
ie of legislation at once, and that man
s Whaley because he has more exper
enee than any other in the race, is in
lose touch with the leaders of the par
y and of the administration. He refer
-ed to his efforts in the Baltimore con
ention which nominated Woodrow '
vilson. He said for the past fifty years
he South has nothing from the govern
net but the privilege of paying taxes,
iow, the opportunity is at hand for the
south to come to its own by demanding
ier rights, this she must do by having
apable men to represent her in the
longress, In reply to a suggestion from
is hen amdtah-hdml
filed an application for the office of diS
trict attorney, and then he read a let
ter from Walter W. Vick, one of the
officials of the inauguration committee,
thanking him for his services. At the
close of the meeting the candidates for
the legislature spoke, but as we did not
remain we are unable to give a synopsis
of what they said. We heard some
cheering from the court house while
one of the candidates was speaking.
The meeting yesterday was a credit
to the county, all of the candidates re
ceived good attention and applause.
The county is very much divided in
opinion as to who is the winner, not
withstavding the boasts of those who
pretend to.know, we do not believe there
fs anybody who can foresee the result.

Card From Candidate Penrifoy.
March 26th, 1913.
Editor of The Manning Times:
On yesterday at the campaign meet
ing, I read the following telegram:
"Col. D. B. Peurifoy, Walterboro, S.
C. Your wire. W. P. Beard has no
authority to speak for me at any time
or place and Goes not represent me in
any capacity. If I lived in that Con
gressional district I would vote for my
cousin's husband. John H. Peurifoy."
"Cole L. Blease."
March 22nd, 1913. -
The candidates who followed me,
Messrs. Padeett.. Hughes and Whaley,
made an attack upon me on account of
this telegram, stating that I had not
read same at the other campaign meet
ings, and had withheld it until I reach
ed here, because Clarendon was con
sidered strong for Governor Blease.
These insinuations are absolutely un
true, for as a matter of fact I did not
receive the telegram until a few min
utes before the meeting opened. The
telegram was sent to my brother at
Walterboro, and forwarded to me here
Governor Blease knows the position
I took in the campaign of last summer,
when I was a candidate for re-election
to the office of Solicitor. The telegram
was read for the purpose of showing
that W. P. Beard had no authority to
speak for the Governor in this race. I
desire further to state that I am not
running for congress upon the coat-tail
of Governor Blease, or anybody else,
