A few days abo in commenting upon
.the candidacy of Richard I. Manning
this p-.per Haid editorially:
"We have long known him to be a
riiun o.f character, of vision, of sym
pathy, of honesty and of reliability.
And'we believe that If ho is elected
governor there wiii be in that onice
a man whom every South Carolinian
will In t.'mo come to love. H* !s a
man of gentle manners but of un
doubted courage; be is a man who is
proud of his mtzt*t proud of the men
whose blood flows in bis veins and bo
fore te would be guilty of one ignoble
act as governor of the Btate, he would
lay down his life.
"There are other splendid men In
the race for governor and we will not
discount their ability, their capability
or their character, but we believe in
truth that the man who would most
honor South Carolina1 is Richard I.
Manning bf Sumter, who should be
permitted to come Into his own, for
he would have been governor long
It is with peculiar pleasure, there
fore that wo can now all the mpre
unreservedly commend him to the peo
ple who read this paper. Mr. Man
ning did not receive bin natural
atrsagth In the ?rs? primary for ma
ny of his supporters, not realising his
general strength, were induced to
vote for others for whom there was
a sentimental wave.
We, therefore, feel quito sure that
Mr. Manning will bo the next govern
or. Of his opponent, we have no
criticism except that we think Mr.
Manning is the bigger, the broader,
the more suitable man, that he can
handle problems and propositions of
any magnitude and that he can yet
appreciate the needs of the people.
We are for Manning, because?
is a practical and successful
1er and knows what the farmer
needs. He is working for better fer
tilisers, and for better country con
He is a practlcui and successful
business man and can administer the
affaire of the State in the best man
He is a level headed man, of sound
judgment, with flat administrative
ability; he Is the kind of man that
gets thipgs done?
He Is la a courageous man and
he Is an honest man ; ho does not form
his views just to phase a crowd, nor
does h(? pretend to be one thing to
one man and another thing to an
' He will enforce tho law on the sta
tute-books without favoring one man
over another, or one town or county
And becauqe, with Mr. Manning as
governor South Carolina will prosper,
will be law Abiding, will be well gov
erned and you will never be sorry that
yon voted for him.

MR, FANTS VOTE
In tabulating the vote for members
of 4he general assembly, one of the
.figures made by the adding machine
waa indistinct and Ruf us Fant, Jr.,
was recorded as having something
over 2,800 votes when it should have
been 2,800. The "8" and tho "8" are
very much alike. The final and official
cotint gives Mr. Fant 2,960 votes and

boldness of Ideas, determination to
put them through, and success in ex

valuable for the state at large, for he
is a leader, a man of character, of
success and of vision.
Give uu three more such as these.
The forco of "hello girls" who were
on duty on the night of the election
have the thanks of the newspaper
men of Anderson, for it was only by
their untiring efforts and accomoda
tlons that the returns of the election
in tho city of Anderson were secured
so readily. At The Iatelllgencer of
flco there were two 'plumes that were
constantly in operation from 5 p. m.,
Tuesday until 3 a. in. on Wednesday.
The work of getting the returns in
to Anderson on the night of the elec
tion iS'CollosBal In itself,, but without
the telephone, company it would have
been impossible, and there would hove
been v?A.-y few of the Andersdn coun
ty returns given to the public.
Tho central, operators were as oblig
ing and accomodatiug as they could
possibly ha)e been, and especially In
securing the returns from obscure
points- The motto of the tele
phone company which proclaims the J
company as being the "Finder of .Men
is certainly one which is well word
ed and which bus a meaning. They
live up to their motto.
MuuuKcr Eeuiy, Mr. Swiizer and
Mr. Thompson of the Bell, company,
also gave their time and services, all
of which waa greatly appreciated.
We have heard mon say that the
State of S"Uth Carolina should do
something for, Messrs Pollock and
Jennings. In Greenwood a purse is
being mnde up to send them a loving
cup each. A prominent farmer of
this county 'phoned this paper Thurs
day afternoon and offered to start a
subscription list to raise $1,000 to
net some filling testimonial to show
t'uesi' gentlemen the appreciation of
Anderson county for the work done
In the recent campaign.
Without eonitultatlon with these
gentlemen, we would say that while
they' might appreciate some simple
testimonial of 'cem, yet they
would prefer fa e people to endow
scholarships for Anderson college or
it Frazer Academy and let these
scholarships bear the names of the
