BERKELEY BRAVES PARADED
WITH A BRASS
A GOOD MEETING
Pollock and Jeiuiings Were Ab
sent and There Was No
Special to The Intelligencer.
Moncka Corner, Aug 18?Tlic sena
torlal campaign meeting here toduy
stands out In striking contrast tt
that of yesterday. L. D. Jennings an
W. P. Pollock were absent, and both
Governor Bleasc aud Senator Smith
received attention and thoughtful
hearings. Only a few times wen
these speakers interrupted by wrang
lers in the audience. There were ap- |
proxtmately 4b0 persons present, am"
was the smallest crowd which the]
candidates have faced during the en- j
tiro campaign, with the exception of
the Beaufort meeting.
The mcet-ng today was featured by,
the governor's attack on the advcrtls- j
ing policy of Richard I. Manning i
the Charleston papers. The point o
criticism in this was the wording,
"Vote for Blchard 1. Manning for gov
eruor, ihe auti-Bleasu candidate."
"If that advertisement was by on>
of Blcasc's friends it would be stb
ring up factionalism. If by Bleas
himself it wouJd be an appeal to pre-i
Judice," the governor charged.
Another Interesting phase as added,
when Senator Smith called a halt up
on tho governor while the chief exc
utive was^cbarglng that Scnato
Smith voted to pay $2,000 to the fam
ily of a lynched negro.
% Abruptly interrupting the govcrno'
Senator Smith asked, "didn't Bcnj;
min Ryan Tiliman and the reformer
write that into the constitution back
in 1895 when the constitution was r<
written?" The governor replied in th
affirmative, but added, "tb^t was th
biggest mistake that Tiliman eve
A demonstration was made for Scr
ator Smith, a pageaut of footmen, wr.
gone, buggies, carriages'and nutome
jhilcs, being led to the courthouse yard
by Metz's band from Charleston.
When-the govornor' wo b speaking,
the charge Was made 1 that D. Frank
McLeod had paid tho band. Mr. Mc
Leod ' denounced this as untrue and
his claim was substantiated when the
Berkley citizens came forward and
certified by signed petitions, which
the chairman read, that they had
subscribed the fund themselves am'
that Mr. McLeod bad disbursed it a
their request. "
Senator Smith spoke first and was
warmly received.. After he had dis
j cussed t?he new currency aud banking
[law and clarified its application it
giving relief in tho present flnancia'
crisis, Incident to the European war,
one of tho . audience volunteered,
"you only did your duty," "and that's
aty I want to do," tho Senator retorted.
That man who works for his own ben
efit was likened to ."a stagnant pool,
which breeds snakes, mosquitoes,
frogs and malaria, and Isn't worth a
Senator Smith asked that his record
be searched to find If he hadn't kept
hiB faith. "If you find that I've work,
ed for you, then I expect you to ex
press your approval at tho ballot
box. You put mo whero I am, and
I've kept tho faith in Bpcnding five
and ! one half years' working for tho
farmers of the Stato."
The governor who spoke last an
nounced that a meeting had been held
In the governor's offlco yesterday,

"Vowside bhs a majority, the
-owest estimate of which is 6,000 or
