Charges "Riings" Supporting Other
MANY SPEAKERS ABSENT
Candidates for State Offices Will Ad
dress Voters at Charleston
Mocka Corner, July 3...-Rivalling
interest the attacks that have been
qtdged during tha State campaign
party was the expression of Mrs. E.
Barton Wallace, candidate for super
intendent of education at the meeting
here today against what she termed
the "political rings and clubs" that
are actively supporting the candidacy
of another candidate of the feminine
:sex for the same' office.
After telling in detail of her ex
perience in the schools and col
leges of the State, her work among
the American soldiers in France
during the war, and the establish
ment of the children's clinic at Co
lumbia, Mrs. Wallace stated to the
audience which filled the cQurt
room of the Berkeley County court
house that sbo ; was a tenderfoot
in politics, that she had found no
time to devote to women's clubs on
account of the fact that the major
portion of her life had been devoted
to the instilling of ideals and
knowledge in the lives of children
in the- communities where she has
labored, and that her afternoons,
instead of being spent among club
women, had been spent among the
unfortunate children who daily
visit the Columbia clinic for treat
meht, recreation, and the funda
mentals of primary education.
' Mrs. Wallace stated if she had
'desired, she could have become af
filiated with the most select clubs
in the city of Columbia by invita
tion, and that the only circle or
"ring" with which she was aligned
was that circle whose members de
sired to render the greatest serv
ice possible to humanity, and that
the ofilce of State superintendent
would qpen up new avenues for ex
pansion of the work in which she
has spent more than fifteen years.
George K. Laney, candidate for
-Governor, also came into the lime
light in a bitter denunciation of
John T. Duncan, following state
ments made repeatedly from the
platform by Duncan that Laney had
shown a willingness to : dispose of
the Columbia Canal for the paltry
sum of $18,000 to E. W. Robertson,
of Columbia, instead of showing a
--determination to develop the prop
erty for the financial.benefit of the
State. "Any man who intimates any
crookedness on my part in con
nection with the canal is a liar," de
clared Mr. Laney, who has served
for a number of years as a member
of the canal commission of the Gen
"My whole life has been lived
with the purpose ever in mind of
building a character for myself, and
it shall not be besmirched," wvas
the emphatic conclusion of the Sena
tor from Chesterfield county.

tendent of education, that the State
board of education had oaused the
useless expenditure on the part of
pati'Qim of South, Carolina schools
by duplicate adoption of text books
of approximately a quarter of i mil
lion dollars. John E. Swearingen de
clared that the only answer he
would make was that it would be
unwise to put a text book agent
into office at this time.
Discuss,ions of the issues that
now face the people and the State
by Thomas G. McLeod brought
forth frequent applause from the
audience, especially his emphatic
statements regarding law enforce
ment, which he said is the greatest
question that confronts the world
today, the limited use of the par
doning power, and expansion of the
school system economically and ef
Telegrams from several members
of the party were read by the coun

sons for their non attendance at
the meeting today.

peals for the suffrage of the Ber
keley county citizens. Mr. Logan

that Charleston county has always
been in power in Congress, and that
a Broad street lawyer invariably
fills thi-,important office from this
district, representing approximately
215,000 citizens. Thestime has come
for a change, said Mr. Hutto, who
claims that a large number of citi
zens of Charleston county and city
are endorsing his candidacy. lie
charged that John P. Grace is no
torious, both in the State and na
tion, and that the p~resent mayor
used h1is infhie nce to disfranchise
the farmers of Charleston county
at the county convention in May.
Mr. Hutto told of the organiza
tion of the federal reserve banking
system, and said that during the
wvar, these institutions were of un
told value, but had nowv become in
struments or torture for the farm
cers of the South. lie prorniised to
fight for a relief from the present
condition of aff'airs in connection
with these banking institutions.

IN LOVING REMEMHRtANCE
In loving remembrance of our dear
friend, Mr's. William Meyer. She wvas
the loving wife of Rev. William Meyer,
died June 6th, 1922. She leaves to
mourn her sad loss a husband,~ moth
er, two sisters and one brother and a
host of relatives and friends.
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we love Is stilled;
A place is vacant In our heart,
Which never can be filled.
Heaven retaineth now our treasure,
Earth the lonely casket keeps;
Andc the sunbeams hover to linger,
Where our darling one sleeps.
When we leave this world of changes,
When we leave this world of care,
We shall find our missing loved one,
In our' Father's .Mansion fali'.
A precious one has left us,
Yes forever, more b~ut wec hope to meet
our clear fr'iencd
On that beautiful shor'e.

BIG TIME AT PANOLA
The people from Manning. Sum..
merton, Paxville, Pinewood and really
all over the Western half of Claren
don County met at Panola yesterday
and had one of the best times in the
history of that grand neighborhood.
The county candidates were there with
their little, say boys vote for me--I
never saw more good things to eat in
my life, and the people of that sec
tion really know how to give people
a good time. The writer will look
forward to another trip like this.

CANTEY RELIES ON
Summerton, S. C., July 1, 1922.
Editor of The Manning Times:
Quite a number of my friends have
expressed to me some surprise on ac
count of the fact that I have not as
yet taken an active part in the State
campaign. DON'T STAMPEDE.
James M. Cox toured the entire Unit
ed States, from Maine to California,
and made a hundred speeches, while
Warren Gamaliel Harding sat on his
front porch and smoked. Harding
defeated Cox by a plurality of seven
million votes. DON'T STAMPEDE.
Carefully arranged statistics here
show that I will get a handsome vote
and before the campaign has ended,
some of the most intelligent citizens
in the State will openly endorse me.
If there is another man in South
Carolina who can submit to the peo
ple a better platform than I have
submitted, I will voluntarily retire
from the race. DON'T STAMPEDE.
Don't vote for some old, stale, hack
neyed politician, simply to keep some
other ol, stale. hackneyed politician
out of office. It has always been a
strange thing to me -that a gentle
man will decline to swallow stale
meat or stale cheese, but will gladly
swallow some stale politician. VOTE
