(From The Spartanburg Journal.)
Spartanburg's candidate for the
United States senate to succeed John
L. McLaurin is ex-Governor John Gary
iEvans. In a residenco of several years
he has establishOd himself in the es
teoni and good will of the people of this
county to suoh an extent that he Is ro- 1
gardod with no less affection and inter.
est that would be the case were he a
native born Spartan. His popularity
extends to all classes. Borne of his
closest political and personal friends
are to be found among those who wore
formerly his strongest opponents.
To know Governor ivans has been
to appreciate his flne qualities, his
sterling honesty and his eminent qua.
lileations as a statesman and citizen.

Ities for governor and senator, and he
will carry it this year by a much larg

alRimost be said that ho will receive the
unarnious democratic vote of the
county, so great is the local interest in
his eandidacy. -iis personal popular.
ity extcriding from Spartanburg County
as a bausls, is radiated all over the
l'ledmo1'nt section of the state and in

Gvuernor I)vans is lookod upon as a

aa.ae time Governor Evans has qevet
been regarded as hostile to captal
and corporations in any sense, and
has many friends and supporters
among those who have large invest.

Governor 1Dvans is nevortholoess t G

by reason of the vigorous and won.

ago. He then said McLaurin was a
republican, and that gentleman has

not the only prophet in that line, how.
ever, but he was the only man who
made a fight on McLaurin then who is
now a candidate before the people as
his successor. He evidently knows
a republican when he sees one, and
this is some assurance, If any were
needed, that his own democraoy Is
Has Been Faithful to Bvery Trust.
Governor JDvans' equipment and
qualinications for the senatorship are
undoubted, and his services to the peo.
plo of the state certainly give him a
claim upon their earnest consideration
of his candidacy. He has ever been
faithful to the trust reposed in him by
the democrats of South Carolina, and
retains to the utmost the respect and
condence of those who know himu.

ho is best known, and i. backed by
the support of the thickly populated
Piedmont counties and he is sure to
be a formIdable factor in the race.
Tillman Hands Off.
In view of numerous reports about
this man and that man being "Till
man's candidate" for the senate, a
statement made by Senator Tinmsan in
Washington recently may prove of in.
terest to those watching South Caro.
"There is really no reason why I
should mix up in this race." said Sen
ator Tillman, "nor do I intend to take
the slightest part in it one way or the
other. It is true that before IDyane
entered the race there was but one
candidate in the field, Representative
L.atimnor, who had not at on. tiune op.
