From every section of the

Senator Tillman said that
Gov. Blease has "muddied the
water." Does he mean that the
filth of politics has been stirred
up by him?
With Woodrow Wilson as
presideni and Ira B. Jones as
governor, the Democrats of this
State would be on. shouting
ground next 3 ear.
Citizen Josh Ashley, of An
derson county, one of Governor
Blease's warmest supporters, in
1896, while a member of the leg
islature, voted against ihe sepa
rate coach bill, but. strange to
say, the governor has not charg

How Will Tiliman Vote?
We would be willing to wag -r
a ginger cake against a last
summer's straw hat that Sena

He has said Jones is eminently
qualified for governor, ;but not

6 All for Blease Men
Speaking to a crowd in the
baseball park at Gaffney on the
nigh,t of August 7th, Governor
Blease is reported in the press
dispatches as saying:
"In considering friend or foe so
far as justice went, it made no
difference with him, he would
disp justice to either, but
~n itce to filling appoint
~1t, he would give them all
to Blease men and would not ap
point a Jones man to nothing if
he knew it."1
This is what many have said
he would do if elected again
appoint no one to any office ex
cept those who vote for him.We
take this to mean that should a
man be nominated in the pri
mary on the 27th who is oppos
ed to him, he will disregard the
vote of the people and appoint
some one else. The offices of
- treasurer, auditoi and magis
trate are left entirely with the
Sgovernor as to whom he will ap
point, and if any one now a
candidate for one of these offices
should be nominated in the pri
mary, Gov. Blease will disre

This is being quietly agitated. (
Nothing definite has taken place i
but we look for active steps to I

is over. The one man in Pick- I
ens upon whom all eyes are cen- 1

ly reason why things are not t
now on the move.a He may be t
"going slow" for apurpose, for ~
many times it is best. He is a E

with a number of people, he is nl
the one to lead and the people| a

Will Make Them Sweat Blood.
The fo'lowing is from the
:ampaign speech delivered )v
lov. Blease at Camden:
"Suppose they ar" lucky
enough to beat me. I will have

he will go to brow beat and in

for him. Surely the brave and
free South Carolinians, the
liberty lo ing people of this
grand old commonwealth, will
not be coerced by any sucb
threat. It sounds like the talk
of a tyrant. To such as will
not bow down and worship thE
king, they shall be cast into the
fi: rv furnace and for a littl
more than three months will b'
made to sweat blood. We
thank God that our fathers

they paid for liberty- that with
their lives they kicked off the

Edgefield County has held the
Senatorship for thirty years.
Senator Tillman has been an
exceedingly able man, and has
attracted a great deal of at
tention. He has had all the
honor we can possibly bestow
upon a Southern man, having
been in office twenty-two years.
Therefore, I think he is making
a mistake to ask the people to
re-elect him to a six-year term.
I am not asking him to resign,
or running against his term of
office, but am asking the people
to elect me to succeed him. He
says his health is too feeble to
allow him to make any speeches;
he has not been to a single
meeting. If he is too feeble to
make some speeches, his health
must be too weak to discharge
the duties of the office. In the
nature of things there cannot
be a substitute in a legislative
body. If the Senator is ill, his
seat is vacant. You can ap
point an agent in nearly any
other business in the world. It
would not do to say that he can
pair; we do not send men to the
Senate to pair. Besides, this is
only a temporary device. We
expect to elect a Democratic
President, in which event the
work devolving upon the Sena
tors will be very great, such as
having appointed new post
masters, revenue officers, con
suls, etc. Besides, we want
constructive legislation It is
more important to have two
Senators now than it has been
since 1860. No doubt, Senator
Tillmian has great influence
with the departments, but the
heads of these departments will
be changed if Wilson is elected,
and younger men appointed.
The Senator taught us for
twenty-odd years that a man
should be strong, otherwise he
should not ask for public office.
Suppose the best man you can
think of, whose health is in the
condition of Senator Tillman's,
desired election to any office.
how many votes do you sup
pose he would receive?
I do not claim to be the best
man in the State for this office,
but have made a success in a
modest way, and I do know the
requirements of all of our peo
ple. I believe and know that
I can be of service to them, and
