As repor te d for tho News und Courier
hy I'Mitor of Lturens Advertiser.
Luureus, s ptoniber 12. ? Special :
The udvertUod political "summor
mooting; was called to order in
i t House by County Chairman
(i. I*. Smith at 11 a.m. Tho Court
room was full, about three hundred
people being present, one-third from
the city and two-thirds substantial
farmers. Messrs. J. T. Johnson, A. C.
Latluier, J. J. Homphlll and George
Johnstone arrived last evening and ad
.i the meeting. Senators Mc
I.nurin and Tlllmatl and others wore
!. but did not attend. Mr. lion,
dcrson, of Aiken, wroto, explaining
that u previous call to Hampton Coun
ty prevented his being here.
The -peeches, of forty minutes each,
were necessarily on the same lines as
horetoforo?oxpanslon alias Imperial
ism, subsidy and protection and were
celved with enthusiasm. Congress
man Johnson, an old Laurons man, met
;i cordial round of applause when he
bowed to an old home audienoe. Ho
said that thcro were three questions
raised by tho occasion which brings
i audience together, expansion, sub
sidy, protection. He differentiated ex
pansion of JolTersonlan times and the
? way of tho commnnder-ln-chief of tho
army and the navy. Jeffersonlan prin
u'p'rs aro sound today and lit all times
?I~ 11 ? ten eonnnandmonts. The Ham
['Ionian Idea is adverse to the rule of
the people. Protection is Republican
ism. We are all expansionists in one
sonso, but Industries and commerce
must not bo expanded at tho exponso
of rieht. The proposed subsidy is a
gjjt pure and simple OUt Of tho public
trcasurey. His speech was mostly on
this subject and was well received.
Congressman Latimer was greeted
heartily. He hud his audience by the
car with an anecdote and the pith of
hi- speech was caught when no an
nouueed that the extraordinary course
of the junior S< uator had brought the
audience together. He referred to tho
Anderson meeting, when McLaurln
slipped in at the back door at tho elev
enth hour, with a yelling crowd at his
hi k Th i same crowd would have
v i ed for him if he had been the black
e-t Republican' Hut Anderson will bo
fottud all right when tho votes aro
counted. He then made a specialty of
the unlor Senator's record. MoLaurin
was blacklisted with himself, but he
soon had his patronage when he tound
him to have bacKslided and pandering
to tho powers. Ho would bo horo to
day if he were assured Tlllman would
not. Not a Democratic. Senator has
any respect for him. Ho touched ex
|>anslon, subsidy and protection, and
captured the crowd with his climax
that the new movement is old Republi
The crowd was getting a little tired
whon Mr. Homphlll was introduced,
hut an anecdote, a pleasant aside, and
i.t was soon in full accord with tho au
dience, His speech was devoted to the
practical failure as well as theoretic
wrong of Kopubliean expansion. Ho
put strongly the enormous burden,
present and prospective, of supporting
this policy. It is a false pretence and
a cheat that prosperity must follow
from trade with the people of tho cast
w ho live on pauper wages, and he com
pared our Kastern trado with Canada
and Western nations. lie was particu
larly clear and strong upon tho matter.
His speech had close attention, punot
uatod wI'll applause, and his anecdote
of the bad fellow, who confessed to all
the sins to his parson, but thanked God
he still had his religion, applied to Re
publicans calling themselves Demo
crats, captured the crowd.
Col. George Johnstone Is well known
hero. II?* is an crater and an earnest
spoakor. He spoke lust, but there was
no impatience when it was known he
was to come. Ho was greeted warmly.
His speech was an eloquent arraign
ment of the arbitrary rule of tho Phil
ippines by tho autocratic will of the
President. The theme just suited his
genius. He was forced largely to go
over the ground of the other speakers,
but he did it with original and charac
teristic force. lie said that the post
otliccs were tho small change compen
sal Ions for transforming Democrats in
to Republicans. Tho subsidy scheme
la entonded to divort the country from
the Isthmian Canal, of such vast con
cern to the , eople. He was greatly ap
plauded. Ho told his coon story and
the meeting dissolved. The meeting
will have a good effect.
