OF THE HOUSE OF REPRE
SENTATIVES AT AP
IS OPTIMIST ?C
Has Received Assurances of Sup
port From Many Parts of
W. B. King, ex-Bheriff of Anderson
county and former police chief of the
city, la a candidate for sargeant-at
arms of the House of Representatives,
a position which will be filled by the
lower branch of the Legislature upon
the convening of the General Assem
bly -on Tuesday.
Mr. King stated yesterday that he
entered the race at the solclUtatlon
of friends and that he had received
assurances of support from friends
and acquaintances and many who are
not acquaintances, and that he feels
he has a good chance of being elected
to the position he seeks.
In his campaign for the position of
sergeant-nt-arms of the hduse, Mr.
King has not traveled over the State
for the purpose of consulting various
persons of influence as the remuner
ation of the office does not warrant
such. Mr. Iv'ing has. however, address
ed letters to membors of the House
and others throughout the State In
forming them that he' is a candidate
for this particular office. He has not
asked any of those to pledge him their
support, but merely requested them
to withhold pledging themselves to the
support of any one man until he could
have an interview with them. Mr. King
stated yesterday that he would go
down to Columbia today or tomorrow
In the interest of hla campaign.
That Anderson's welt known and
popular ex-sheriff is out for this po
sition will be of interest to his many
friends throughout the county. He was
Mm and reared in this*county and has
always lived here. For years he figur
ed conspicuously In public life of the
city and county, and no man who ever
held public, office here 1b more popu
lar with the rank and file of the peo
ple. Big hearted, practical and affable,
but stern and exacting In the dis
charge of duty, when the occasion re
quires, he would make an Ideal ser
jeant-at-arms. And many are there
who would be delighted to see him se
cure the appointment.
' Mr.'King stated that he is opposed
tv some three or four others for the
same position. The position is to be
filled immediately upon ihe conv?niak
of the Legislature, which will be on
"Gentlemen: Am glad you like my
article on 'Debtors Holding Cotton.'
The man whom my father said I most
resembled in looks and disposition
was my uncle, WIU? oui Rives, a gamb
ler and duelist, dying under a gamb.
ler's table but taking his opponent
along with him to heaven's bar. From
him I got, my views of the situation,
though he died tweuty years before
my.birth. His motte was, 'Pay your
debts at whatever sacrifice required;
rour-adversary is not responsible
for your lack of Judgment.'
"Now, the' farmers' gambled on the
crop of cotton being thirteen million
bales and the price 14 cents. Th?
crop Is nearer sixteen miiiton naicB
and. the price seven cents. ' They
should pay .their gambling debt?
'their creditors are not responsible
for their lack of Judgment.' Every
lock of cotton I make shall be. di
vided with my creditors. If it does
not pay, each will have to wait for
his share of the balance, but they
everyone shall-be paid as soon as
possible. To that end I.am cutting
off every luxury that has to be bought,
using'my money from railroad wageB
for paying of gathering of my crop
and making last year's clothes do for
this, both for myself and family. Oth
ers should do likewise. Excuse the
length -of the letter. I Just wan tod
you to know my position, and reason
for the aame."
