another candidate John LJ McLaurin,
of Benuettsvllle, who had injected in
to the gubernatorial raod the iBsue
of "Hleaaiem". Mr. M?mling quoted
from an interview of Mr. McLaurin,

Marlboro candidate said Mr. Manning
had drawn the factional lines. Mr.
Manning said that he had taken the
position that he would not recognize
factional lines unless forced to do
On this point Mr. Manning made the
In an Interview published April 15,
Mr. John L. McLaurin misstated my
position and sought to .shift the re
BUonr'Mllty for the drawing of the
factional lines. In his statement, Mr.
McLaurin was quoted" as Baying that
'Mr. Manning has drawn the factional
lines in his platform.
Mr. McLaurin. has forgotten evi
dently his statement on announcing
his own platform on March 28, hr
which he Bald, BlcasiBin would be one,
if not the paramount, issue ot the cam.
In the) opening paragraph of his
platform, Mr. McLaurin enumerated
the issues as follows:
'I take it that the leading Issues in
thc campaign will be as follows, viz.
"1. Qualifying suffrage in the pri
- "2. Compulsory school laws."

"The warehouse bill."
AVtien I formally announced as a
candidate for governor last October,
I said in a statement given the press
at that time:
"Unless it is forced upon mc, I shall
not recognize the existence of two
factions in the democratic party in
this state. My own belief is that the
time has come when the interests of
ull our people will be advanced by get
ting together on a platform, of princi
ples, administering the government
along business; lines, looking to the
upbuilding of the agricultutal and'
-commercial developments of the state."
When I appeared the night of April
6. 1914, by invitation to address the
Young Men's Manning Club' of Sumter,
I again announced that I would not
recognize the existence of the two fac
tions unless forced on me, f~only re

I want to be frank with you, my

The State does not discuss the mer.
ita of tho case against thc editor of

The law is ample to protect the prl.
.vate citizen or the public officer
against malicious publications by a
newspaper. The law of libel favors
the citizen too much In South Caroli
na and restricts the freedom of the
press to the disadvantage of the peo
ple. It IB a good sign that resort is
had to the lawful course to obtain re
dress. Courts and juries in South Car
olina are not biased in favor of the
newspapers; the officer charged with
preserving tho peace compromises bis
dignity and efficiency when he Indul
ges in. abuse and vituperation and he
strengthens popular respect for hts of.
flee when he appeals to the law. The
public officer and candidate puts his
character In evidence. Often it is the
unescapable duty of the editor to crit
icise bim and his acts, boldy and with,

people are concorned-^of all things,
what we want In South Carolina is
the substitution of truth for abuse

only settlement of controversies that
may be recognized with our preten

James ML Moore, thc editor arrested
arrested yesterday, came to South
Carolina a quarter of a century ago
to earn his Uvlihood, we believe, as
a printer at the case. By dint of in
tellectual force, by diligence and right
living, he came to hold responsible ed
itorial posts in Charleston and else
where on influential newspaper staffs.
When we knew him first he stood for
the opposite of political opinions we
held; be was a "Reformer" or sup
porter of Governor Tillman and "TIU
manlsm," but he was no "man's" man
and.he compelled the respect of his
opponents. He needs from this news,

fae is an honest and manly journalist,
who bolds the obligations of his pre

has set for his guidance.

Dick Townsend was a Democratic
congressman from Illinois and a fol
lower of "Bill" Morrison, a sure
enough Democrat. Dick was what wc
call a bright fellow. Good looking
ready, fluent, he was a rather show]
man. He was chairman of thc commit
tee on revision of the laws and one
day he introduced a bill the title ol
which to amend certain sections o:
a certain law and the speaker prompt
ly referred the bill to Dock's commit

they ordered things dig?rent In 1880
lt was thc palay day of the filibus

ocrats rallied to Dick to oppose ref

Blackburn, as good a parliamentarian
as Randall himself, was In the middle
of -it. Hurd, Proctor, Knott, "Sunset"
Cox, Mills and others supported them.
I nm sure Morrison was with them,
and I believe Carlisle himself, the ab
lest parliamentarian any congress ev

When the Randal lites and Republi

send would move to adjourn. Then Joe
Blackburn In that commanding and so
norous voice would arise: "Mr. Speak,
er, I move you, afr, that when the
house adjourns today lt be to meet on

calls and it was dope a score of times.
