MANNING. S. C., AUG. 12, 1914.
PUBLISH':) EVERY WEDNESDAY
The political situation in this
state has resolved itself into a
fight to "Down Bleaseism and to
defeat John G. Richards." It is
a pity we cannot have a cam
paign of education rather than
the kind we do have. In the
present circumstances those
who, before the campaign begun
were loudest in their expressions
to wipe out factionalism, are
now the most pronounced of
factionalists. It is wrong, and
as long as it continues we shall
not have peace in the state. The
-indiscretion of Mr. J. W. Nor
wood at Greenville has done a
-great deal towards opening up
the soreness of two years ago.
The idea of a man regarded as
sensible getting up on a rostrum
andasserting "that any educated
man who votes for Blease is a
dirty skunk." Do not all of us
know there are as good, men
who will vote for Povernor
Blease as there are who will
vote against him? Surely the
opponents of Governor Blease
will not take this foolish asser
tion of Mr. Norwood, for a cam
paign shibboleth?We are satisfied
they regret his having made use
of such language, but all the
same his foolish words have
been heralded all over the state,
ani it has had the effect of caus
ing many who were supporters
of the go(rnor two years ago,
and In. this election were in

foihim for a higher office, to
determine not only to vote for
him but to go among their
riends ud urge them to do

Sas follows, where Cooper is

2likely get into the second race,
but& if instructions are followed
there will be at jeast one anti
adminstration man in the second
Srace, and he will win. Mr.
Cooper is agood man, but he
as permitted himself to get in
amix-up that will, in our opin
ion, result against him.
The same can be said of Mr.

Sof course not to hurt Mr. Clink

everywhere largely on account
fhi compulsory education
views, and his side-stepping the
liquor question. It is clear to
our mind the elimination con
spirators do not want Mr. Clink
scales any more than they want
Mendel Smith or C. A. Smith;
the scheme is in our opinion, to
concentrate on Manning or
Cooper, convention tactics of
the long ago.
The effect of this undemo
craticscheme has been to force
into the second race the object
of their attack, Hon. John G.
Richards. who will make a formi
dable candidate It was our
opinion, and we so expressed
ourself privately, that under the
circumstances, we believed the
second race lay between Clink
scales and one of the Smiths,
and, we held to this opinion, un
til the elimination scheme was
proposed, but now we believe,
as a result of this unwise move
ment, Richards will get a plu
rahty on the first ballot, with a
probability that Charles A.
Smith of Timmonsville or Men
del Smith of Camden will get in
the second race with him. We
have grave doubts of any of the
three - Cooper, Manning or
Clinkscales coming under the
string for second place.
A PEACEFUL MEETING.
The Senatorial campaign meet
ing will take place in Manning
on the 19tb; which is today one
week, and we are taking the
liberty to urge our friends to
come with a determination of
having good order. Let it not
be said that Manning is no bet
ter tien some of the towns that
have had such disgraceful con
duct. Let us merit the news
papers i-eporting this town one
'of the best in the State. If every
citizen will come to the meeting
to demand a respectful hearing
ior the candidates, then a peace
ful meeting. is assured. The
County Chairman, the Sheriff,
and the Mayor will do all in
their power to maintain order,

ciiizens to sustain them in their
A word to the friends of Gov
ernor Biease. It will be more
becoming in you to receive the
attacks of his three opponents in
silence rather than to undertake
to heckle and interrupt the
speaker making the attack.
Those who do not care to hear
the two prosecuting attorneys
that are daily making attacks
upon the governor need not. re
main at the meeting, but if they
do remain they should .not un
dertake to interrupt or to inter
fere in any way.
A word to the opponents of
B'ease. Much of the good order
pleaded for here can be accom
plished )~y you curbing your
enthusiam, and by not forcing
your remarks of a distasteful
nature 'upon unwilling ears.
Remember, there are good men
voting for all of the candidates,
and no man has a right to mak
ing insulting remarks to another
because tiiey will not vote for
the same man. We have heard
men make severe remarks about
another, that if the person they
were spoken of heard them, it
would cause trouble. Therefore,
every man, Bleaseite. Smithite,
or the supporters of Pollock or
Jennings. listen to all of them,
then go home to turn out on
election day and vote for whom
you please. This is the way
intelligent people should do.
What is to be gained by having
a noisy rowdy meeting at Man
ning? There is much .to be
gained by making the meeting a
model one. Do not even pay
any attention to those who are
reporting changes, because i
frequently happens that a pro
fessed supporter of a candidate
makes it known that H' has
changed whenr he was agamnst
the man he pretended to change
from all the time..
Oh, HAD WE HEEDED.
ft will be recalled the efforts
made by Hon. John L. McLaur
in to have the general assembly
to commit itself, and the State
of South Carolina, to the policy
f providing a'State Warehouse
system for the purpose of taking'
care of the cotton, and, provid
ing a means to give the growers
of the stapie an opportunity to
get money at the lowest pos
sibe cost. The proposition was
defeated, not because it lacked
merit, but maixdy because, the
jealous~y of certain politicians
was too strong. There was an
element in the legislature who
could see no good in anything
that did not emanate from them.
they looked with suspicion on
anything coming from another
source. The Warehouse propo
sition was a stupendous scheme.
if it had been permitted to be

the word picture drawn of con- I
ditions should there be a war in
Europe, it must strike them to
be somewhat in line with proph
ecy; we are now right up against
the conditions described at that
time. There is a war in Europe,
and unless it is stopped very
soon, our export business is
gone so far as the early sellers
of cotton are concerned, and it I

whereas had we heeded the ad- I
vice of a statesman who urged
the Warehouse system we would
now be in an independent posi- 1
tion, because the cotton would
be taken care of at a minimum
cost, and saved from being forc
ed on the market.
Some twenty years ago when
the Farmers' Union was clamor
og for the operation of such
measures as have been put into
effect during the past week or
ten days, the people who had
control of the government de
nounced them as a lot of crazy
fools,. anarchists and the like.
But now we see these old reme
dies working like o charm, aud
saving the country from disas
ter and misery almost as great
as would be entailed by war it
self. For instance, suppose the
few holders of gold had done as
is always done under conditions
like this-hoarded it-and there
had been no tremendous cur
rency issue, what would have
been the result?* Panic, and at
the end of the panic all the prop
erty of the poorer people would
have been in the hands of the
richer people. - Great is a coun
try where the people are their
own rulers. and where the many
will not allowv themselves to be
oppressed by the few.
Now if the McLaurin ware
house bill had only been put in
operation two years ago, th'ere
would hava been absolutely 'no
trouble about warehousing 'the
entire cotton crop of South Car
olina in such a manner as to
give the State the use of its full1
value in money until things got

befallen him by the death of his

woman. one who realized the
greatness of her husband's re
sponsibilities to the American
people and to the world at large,
and she donated much of her
inividuality in her encourage

great task, and to have such an
affliction at this time, when he.
is burdened with the cares of a
nation, excites the deepest and
sincerest sympathy of all regard

race this year result in favor of

it would not surprise us for a

opinion that we would have to
"Adopt the principles of those
who put us on the defensive. or
others equivalent and better fit

The alarming feature of the
situation is that we of the South
may possibly have 8,000,000 or
10,000,000 bales of cotton 1. ither
to exported to foreign markets,
but now tied up at home. To
prevent an avalanche of disas
ter as wide as the nation some
immediate arrangements must
be made, whereby the farmer
can get ready money for his cot
ton, and whereby that cotton
may be held until it can be
marketed. To solve this prob
lem will require the highest or
order of business talent. The
question of transportation by
land and by sea is involved. The
question of storage and 'insur
ance is involved. The question
of raising and furnishing the
requisite cash is involved. When
we look at a single State in the
republic of Brazil and see that
the statesmanship and the busi
ness capacity of the people of
Sao Paulo met and mastered a
similar situation, it cannat be
doubted that America will be
able to furnish brains enough to
meet th'e conditions' which now
demand solution and to save
America and the world from dis

problem of production, distribu
