A voice: ' We never will, either."
(Laughter and cheers.)
Ile showed that he had not only writ
ten a imost scathing article against
Judge (Goff, but had fought his usur

could he (say that I had bent the knee
to him ? If he is no better juige of

Turning to Mr. Duncan, he asked
w hy he was so interested in the dis
pensary law ? Ilis father-in-law was a
member of the board, Mr. .)ames Nor
ton was also, and they had no coin
plaints to make. le went on to say
that he was sure that the people felt
that the dispensary law should not be
in the hands of the State offlicers. Lie
read from his message what he recomn
mended. lie asked Mr. Dunean who
told him that he had given a bill to the
Attorney General making a board
which he could control : Mr. Harbor
positively denied having made such a
Mr. Duncan said he would reply in
time. Governor l'vans, turning to the
audience, said who ever mado such a
statement told a lie: it was positively
untrue. lie did recommend that a bill
be drawn up ilputting the aTairs -of the
dispensary in the hands of a commis
sion elected by the Legislature. MIAe.
Barber told him that Mr. Tompkins
didn't like that. He (Governor Nvans)
went to Mr. Tompkins and the latter
said that there had been a great deal
of talk In Columbia about the board Ie
ceiving rebates and if this bill was
carried out it would look like a rellec
tion oi them and a seeming contirma
tion of the rumors. Ile told Mr. Tomp
kins that he would do nothing to in
jure him and went on to show him
how the plan would be a good one.
Governor l'1vtns was hoarsoe, stiffer
ing from it soro throat, and he got. Mir.
Cooper to read that part Of his muls
sage in refe'cnce to the proposed now
board of control.
The (;ove'nor said he recommended
the board because he daily had to sign
checks for $20,000 or ior'e, which h1e
did not know whether it was to pur
chase liquoi' orl saw dust.
About that cir'eultar- tlItt insinut

Tle insinuation is made that I issie(d
that cir-cular to get my brother a little

Conway, the capital of the Indeoen

in consequence, there will be no cam

3pent by the party in getting from
Dlonway to Marion, where the last

Interesting. Senator Derham, who
represents that county in the uppor
house of the Genoral Assembly, says it
is called the Independent lopublic
because there was once a time when
South Carolina was not a part of
t iorry. h'lhat explanation may be very
gratifying to the pride and may tickie
the vanity of the citizens of the ite
public, but people who do not live
within its confines will persist in be
lieving that Ilorry acquired its proud
title because of the sturdy manliness

Citizens of other parts of the State,

little of t.o topography of the indo

It is unlikely that a campaign moot
ing lield in thi. State in 20 years has
been so sliimly attended as the one
hero today. It was intended to open
the meeting at II o'clock und thlLt
candidates should speak from the high
porch of the court house to the- antici
pated multitudes blow. But when 11
o'clock arrived there was no multitude,
neither at Crowd. There were a few
knots of townspeople. so at postpone
Iment was had till 12 o'clock. The
crowd failing to iaterialize, there was
a Calcus as to whether or not the can
didates should speak. It seems that
they arc fond of speaking, for they
spoke ; not from the balcony, for the
balcony could hold the audience. They
were all asked inside, where there
were front seats to spare. There were,
all told, candidates, correspondents,
whites and negroes, 122 people present
when the meeting was called to order.
Of theso 43 were negroes.
Captain Ward, county chairman,
called the mietin g to order, asking
for ar. attentive hearing for all. The
