MR. BROWNING AND THE
Messrs. W. W. Scott, II. Kelley, Asa
Hall, Jr., and H. Clinton Summers, of
the Anderson legislative delegation:
I see in the press of February 3 a
letter from you to Senator John L.
lcLaurin, withdrawing your endorse
ment of him as a candidate for gov
ernor, you alleging as your reason
that he has deserted the principles of
the Reform party of this state. This
letter of yours is evidently intended
as a reply to his open letter of some
. ;s before.
Yru accuse him of being a traitor
to the principles of the Reform party
of this state, yet in his letter he de
clares he is anxious to perfect the
warehouse system, whereby the mid
die man would be eliminated and the
Cotton producer and the cotton con
sumer would deal directly with each
other, at a minimum of cost. Do you
not believe that this system would an
nually saev to the cotton planters
millions of dollars ? If you (1o not be
lieve this, why have you advocated
it? McLaurin evidently is sincere in
his advocacy. Were you simply play
ing politics and hoping by advocating
the warehouse system, to tie to your
chariot wheel one of the profoundest
thinkers and most eloquent debaters
not only of this state, but of the na
Do you think our insurance laws
are perfect? Do you not realize that
the insurance rates in this statte are
excessive? And if you have the wel
far of the people at heart, why do
you repudiate a man who has evolved
a plan whereby our people would be
saved enormous sums for fire protec
tion ? This money leaves our state,
never to return, but goes to enrich
other sections. Why not keep it at
home ? It can be done with McLaurin
as governor, yet you say he deserted
the Reform party.
Do you not wish a reform 'of our
primary election system, so that every
man can vote according to his honest
convictions, without fear of intimida
tion ? Then do you not wvant these
ballots honestly counteu ? I am un*
decr the impression that this is one of
the tenets of the Reform party, as
well as of all other honest men in
the state. If you favor them, wvhy
(d0 you now repudiate MlcLaurin ? For
so does he.
D~o you not very frequently, in the
house .of representatives, raise your
voice in protest against extravagant
applropriations and high taxes? This
can bec largely remedied by a budge;
system. Mc Laurin stands for this, as
dloes the Reform party. D~o you not
wvant a just system of taxation,
whereby each citizen will bear his pro
rata share of the buraen of govern
ment ? All honest citizens do, wvhether
reformiers or not, McLaurin among the
ncumber-. Only tax dodgers and their
dIupes olppose a just and eqluitable re
form of our tax system. I might cite
you numerous other matte*rs ini which
he standls for the best interests of our
state and for which -all patriotic Re
formers stand. Yet you repudiate him;
you brand him as a traitor to the
Ref ormn parity of South Carvol in, and
for what? Blecause, not wishing to oh-.
tam support under false prletense, he
boldliy declares his position ini regaird
to Governor Blease's candidacy for the
United States senate.
Befor-e our country was at war~
every one had the right to their per
s~onal choice among the warring na
tion:, and to make converts to their
views, when they could. But when
the toesin of war was sounded, when
our country had taken sides, when our
young men were being rapidly called
to the colors and trained for war, so
that upon the bloody field of battle
they might uphloldl the honor and go
ry and honor of our country, it was
the (duty of every citizen to support
the government by both word and
(eed. McLaurin (lid, and thousands
andl thousands of patriotic reformers
in this state did lhkewise, andl in (10
ing so (lid nothing but their duty.
Hadl Governor Blease laid asidie his
personal hostility for President Wil
son and at Pomaria, Filbert and
Chapin declaredl we were fighting a
righteous war; we were fighting to
safeguard the lives of our men, wom
en andl children from ruthless, brutal
murder; we were fighting that civil
ization and Christianity might not
perish from the earth, he would have
been elected to the senate by a ma
jority so great, that the most un

scrupulous election thief would not
have dared to question his triumph.
I and thousands of others hoped that
he would so declare himself; had he
done so, our state would have been
swept with a wave of patriotic en
thusiasm and Blease would have tow
ered head and shoulders above any
man in the state. His patriotism
would have been unassailable and fac
tionalism would have been buried be
yond hope of resurrection.
He did not so speak, but he allowed
his personal venom to override his
judgment; his course was dictated by
hatred of individuals and not by love
of country. His speeches, I have no
doubt, were reported in Germany, his
power here was greatly overrated
there, and the German nation was ani
mated to greater resistance because
they thought one of our great leaders
was their firm friend and supporter.
If Governor Blease should be elected
to the senate, it would inspire the sol
diers and people of Germany to great
er effort; for they would naturally be
lieve that America was about to drop
out of the war. Thousands of Amer
ican soldiers, many of them Carolin
ians, would (lie upon the battle field
on account of this delusion. I honest
ly believe that his election would so
strengthen the morale of the German
people and army that it would be
equivalent to a reinforcement of a
quarter of a million soldiers.
Gentlemen, the poet well says:
"There is a tide in the affairs of men,
which taken at the flood, leads on to
fortune," Blease did not take it, and
apparently, you are following in his
wake. Unless you change your course,
we may safely predict that the re
maining voyages of your lives will be
"bound in shallows and in miseries."
In the past you have admitted Mc
Laurin's ability and patriotism, now
you repudiate him because he stands
for pure and lofty American patriot
ism; because he upholds the purity of
womanhood and the liberty of the hu
man race. Let me beg of you before
it is too late to stop, look and listen!
