oarrying out of tho reoommendatlous
made by the llnanoo committee in or

He warns the people agalust tbe in

that the liquor question should have
attained suoli prom?neuoo. Tncro are
other matters wortnter of attention.
He is not tho onampion of whiski v,
but he ls deeply interested In the
moral welfare of ibo State. He ls
not a straddler and tie will not seek
to befog the public mind on any ls
au?. He does not advooate thc dis
penaary as run In the past. Whether
tbe allegations of corruption and
graft in tba dispensary are true or
not, the people ol Soutu Carolina will
not stand for even tho suspicion of
suoh things. Wnttc thero ls so mud
smoke there must, be some tire, and
tho people of ibe State will not staud
for tbe dispensary as lt has been con
ducted. If corruption and graft do
exist In tbe diapei.Bary, tben lt must
be purgtd of tire odium or else ti t
whole tnlug must g i. Wipe thc dis
pensary out and woat will you I av

JOHN J. MCMAHAN,
of Columbia, tue UcXt candidate for
Governor to address the audleiioe,
prefaced bis remarks with the state
ment tbat every man ls IIIB brother's
keeper, and that it follo ws, therefore,
that every citizen should bj alive to
his olvlo dulles. The scope of gov
ernment haa neon Uigely widened li
is no longer con lined to mere police
regulation. We aro shocked as we
glanoe aoout us at tho evidences ol
corruption abroad In the land, b >Mi
within and without cur Stute. When
we oompare the conditions cf today
with tho conditions which obtained
in the past we must be ashamed ano
Burprihbd. Dispensary corruption is
not the only corruption to be found
in South Carolina lociay. Ojr outj
la imperative to plaoe only the best
and highest men in ellice. Tbe prl
mary system is a great system, but
under it there liss unfortunately
grown up the custom of magnifying
the duties of the candidate and mini
mlzlng tbe duties of the cli.zjn. He
favors the improvement of thc sohoo.s
and oommcnas thc establishment of
the Slate reformatory. Ho stands
today for every educational rciorra
which he has ever advocated. Ile
urged thc importance of thc dr duane
of the coastal region and advocated
the establishment of every couuty of
a model farm. Time dees not permit
him to dlsouss the dibpeusary. Per
sonally he is opioied to the use of
liquor, but he uoeau't believe prohibi
tion practicable. He favors the
State dispensary, tut not the dispen
sary as lt now cxiais. He would tlrst
have lt cleansed and tho rabe?is in it
placed behind prison bars.
