Statement By Thomas H.Peeples,
Candidate for the Short Term
for United States Senate.
I wish to say to the ne; ple of tiuth
Carolina and my conttituen ts that I :iinI
grateful for their confidence. cVi
dlenced hv their libe'ral suippor~t wh
has placed Ie as a caroilidc:itt in he

fIruish to, c:ll to tiwe :itte ntioin of
every person iifierest"d th:t the record
will bear in' out inl eveir ltivinig stood
four-square on every issue' and princi
ple that has beeii advaneed by our gov
ernment in this time of strife, having
been most profoundly in sympathy
with the tllies from the incipiency o)f
hostilities. I have been deeply con
cerned since the cloud of war has hov
ored over our great nation, and the rec
ord will show that immediately upon
a declaration of war I tenderedl my ser
vices to the president land our nation
and from him I received this acknowl
edgement: "The president thanks you
cordially for the good will which
prompted your k intl message which has
helped to reassure' hin and to keep him
in heart, " and since have reassured my
position and sincere interest in every
way possible, as ie further evidenced by
the following letter of .1une 17, 1918,
uddressed to I r. .1ohin I.owell, chair
town of the special connittee for war
gervici, W ashingtin, ). '.:
"I am in receipt of your letter of the
I5th inst. enclosing inforimation card
which is herewith returned.
"1 wish to say that I at in the cam
ftaign for governgor of this state, but
nevertheless I stand realy to answer
the call of my governtent at any time
I may be needed. I will serve in any
capacity and will do so for only my ac
tual expenses. I would be glad to do
so for nothing if I were financially able
to support myself while in the service,"
I wired lion. Woodrow Wilson, presi
dent of the United States, on April t;,
1917, as follows: "Since a state of witi
has been declared between the linited
States of America and Imperial Ger
man government, I extend to you my
services in any capacity." This tele
gram expresses imly position now as
well as then.
This record is not shown as a niatter
of defense, for my position needs no
defense, and any insinuation or state
ment to thle contrary by any man or
set of men is wilful, deliberate and un
true, and I further wish to) add that I
am not running for an ol0iee that will
detain ime long from theo service. T1he
term of the oflice I now hold as at
horney-general of South Carolina, to
which I have been three times elected,
will expire in January next, andl that
of the short termi in the senate will ex
pire on March 3rd next, and whether
e'lected or defeated it will only be a
short time before I will answer the call
of rmy government under- the recent
draft act, and will be with the boys
who have gone forth in this great
gause, and will do my part. then and
there for my opponents and those
against me in this election as freely as
I will for those who are with me and
have been with mae in this political am
bi tion; and I am prouid to say the time
has come, or will soon he at hand, when
I can don the khaki in defense of our
government~ and this~ great cause for
humanity, liberty and justice.
In the discharge of the duties by the
one who is electeid to the Uinited States
senate it is incumbient. upon lim i to co
operate and exercise his every power to
mid the president anid nation in every
effort to carry forth to) a successful
concluseion the great undertaking be fore
the nation and the alliedl world. I am
beartily in favor of sending every avail
able man in America as went forth the
ancient hosts of the Lord to bring vic
tory and glory unto the cause of hu
mani ty, and I reassure the people of
South Caroliuia that my every effort
will be set forth with this sole purpose
in view, returning from the seat of the
senate to the army to do my bit as ai
soldier in actual service, wvhich I feel
vill be a greater honor and for a nobler
eense than any other in the sight of
God and man.
A.a to the other issues, the shor t term
in the-senate would doubtless give no
opportumity to bring them to a success
ful conelusion. They can be properly
presented and concluded in due course
of time. As to this, I wish to reiterate
that I believe in supporting labor in its
legal efforts and protecting capital in
its lawful investments, for they go
hand in hand and their intercourses
should bo- compatible. Also, that some
enactments should be made to adjust
the conditions of labor cnfningn th
and withheld from those who refuse t<
work on account of having this dona.
tion from the government. The farm.
era and homes in South Carolina arc
feeling the effects of the independence
of those who are sharing in this bounty.
I do not believe in deprivations or in
justice, but I do believe that the "work
or light" system should apply to every
able bodied man and woman in America
