BENNETTS YILLE, S. O.
Wo agrco with tho JNcws and
Courior that tho South Carolina
delegation to tho democratic con
vention at Denver should go unin
structed. In tliis attitude wc be
lieve that the News and Courier
voices thc sentiment ol' thc vast
majority of thc democratic voters
of the state.
As to who is the most available
candidato for nomination at this
time it is hard to say. True Bryan
seems to have a long lead but what
of that? There is a good deal of
time between now and the meeting
of the convention and we. submit
that it would bc foolish for South
Carolina to send their delegates
instructed for Bryan. Suppose
when they arrive on the scene that
they sci* that Bryan is not thc best
man to nominate? They would
have to vote fer him anyway.
We would prefer to see them go
uninstructed and let the state con
vention pass a resolution slating
that it is for the delegates to usc
their best judgement and vole for
the best man whether he lie Bry
an, Johnson, (?ray, or Hailey.
Don't send them hampered and
tied down with instructions.
Bryan has defeat written across
his face and he has small chances
of ever being successful al at thc
polls. Johnson has twice been
elected Governor ol' a Republican
state and has no defeat staring
him in the lace. True he is un
known but then lhere is such a
thing as being known too well and
wc believe thal this is the trouble
with Bryan. We admire him as a
man but are doubtful of bis being
thc one for Democratic leader.
This country has long enough suf
fered defeat because thc southern
democrats followed blindly some
leader who has no cham e for suc
Southerner for wc furnish thc
votes and should furnish thc can
didates. Let the western and
northern democrats follow our
bidding a while. Wc have fol

LEAVE MUD SLINGING OUT
Thc candidates who commence
the mud slinging this summer and
who are continually knocking and
jawing one another should and will
be left at home by the voters
when the election conies oil'. For

campaign is disgraceful. Thus
we have tlie spectacle ot' a South
ern state with two candidates each
claiming to lie democrats bringing
in the negro and the dirty liquor,
It is simply disgraceful and should
not be, tolerated.
For several years South Caro
lina was torn by dissensions and
bitter strife within thc democratic
party. (Ult happily this has pass
