SOMETHING ABOUT ANSEL.
The charges brought against Mr.
Martin F. Ansel that he is a "strnd
dler" and all that sort of thing are un
warranted and unworthy. His position
on the living issues of tlu? campaign
are as sharply defined as possible. V. 0
object in purl to his platform because
it is not broad enough as to local option,
not beoause we do not know his atti
tude. His dispensary views were an
nounccd about a year before the cam
paign dpenetl?favoring local option as
between county dispensaries, inde
pendent, and prohibition; he being per
sonally a prohibitionist. This announce
ment was far ahead of those of most
of the other candidates and it is down
in black and white. He has circulated
it in posters over his signature all over
the State since the campaign opened.
Is that dodgin
The facts in the case are: in 1890
when most of us were pastisnns, either
for or against Tillman, Mr. Ansel was
not a ['partisan. He refused to array
himself sharply against cither faction.
He was not a factionalism But nobody
gays that he occupied two positions.
We arc free to say that we prefcra parti
san at times and wo liked the polities
of those who were in the fight with us
better than we liked the polities of
Mr. Ansel. At the same time, fairness
compels us to say that Mr. Ansel
showed no sign of weakness. On the
contrary it required more inflexible
firmness to be a non-partisan in those
days than it did to get out and "holler"
for ono side or another. Mr. Ansel
chose his place then and he stuck to it.
T". ire is no doubt about that ?nobody
< ou'.d move him to anger against either
group of D< mi erata in Smith Carolina.
Mr. Ansel is the son of a German im
migrant and was a poor boy in Wal
halla. He had brains and he worked
his way up. Ho became a lawyer and
succeeded. He made a capital solicitor.
He lacked two voles in the legislature
of being eleet* d judge. We lived in
Greenville and we never heard a man
breathe a syllable against his personal
record. He i.; not rich hut he is fairly
independent and his word is as good as
any man's bond. Ho pays his debts.
Ho drinks no whiskey. He is an elder
in his Church. Tie was the law partner
of such men a ; the late George G.
Wells, the late Judge James S. Cothran
the late James L. Orr, and no one of
those men would have been associated
' with any but a worthy man.
If the refusal of Mr. Ansel to get
excited about Tillmanism or Anti-T'ill
manism was a cvimo, he ought to be de
feated, but that is the sum and sub
stance of the charges against him.
There are other men in the race just as
good personally a:-. Ansel but there is
no other any less of a straddlcr. You
don't see tho State dispensary candi-1
didates going Into th ? Brice Law "dry"
counties and saying that they will ask
for the repeal of tho Brice law -except 1
perhaps Mr. Blcase. And we djn't be-.
Hove that even Mr. Blease will dare go
into Marlboro county where they have
had prohibition about sixty years and
tell those pcopla that if elected lie will:
Try to have oh ponsary liquor shops es
(ablished in th; f. county. Walch.
Senator Tillman was dolightod with;
hi; reception in Columbia. He should;
not have been '.rprised.
The dispensary has brought to Colum

ne.-jj of over three million dollars.

running into Columbia get thousands in

legitimate. If tho state dispensary j

Governor. If Mr. Manning wore not a
state dispensary advocate, we would'

But W? do not'seo how he can oppose
local optici and yet voto for the Brice
law. Moreover, wo think if wholly
natural and consistent for our contem
porary to support Mr. BIcaso, if it does
support him; wo raid a. year ago that
Tillman and Blcaso were tho proper
ticket from a disponsary fitand-point
for Senator and Governor.
But Senator Tillman, it sccmn, has

Th'o Sonntor ways as plain as words can
say without calling the name of Biet) ie

should he elected Governor?they were
"Antis." Senator Tillman says fac

j and unity, just as we were when Shep
pard ran for Governor l I years ago. If
we dill not this year set principles higher
than men, we would pull olV our caps
and yell for Manning. Wo fool a little
like yelling for Mannin?- anyhow.
TIMES HAVE CHANGED.
Tin: AdveutisRH has no objection to
Senator Tillman or any olher man hav
ing political meetings in 1.aureus. The
more the merrier. We favor political
meetings in abundance just as we favor
circuses and morry-go-rounds in abund
ance ami the man who has the time and
! thinks the meeting is worth the time
ought to go to it. Hut there are those
! who holi different opinions and their
views aio entitled to consideration. In
the spring Club Number Two of this
town met and unanimously passed the
"A special committee composed of
\V. T. Crews. .J. A. Austin and U. V.
Culbcrtson, prepared and offered the
following resolutions, which were unan
imously adopted after being discussed
by Messrs. Holl, Boyd, Irby and others:
"Resolved I. That it is the sense of
this meeting that it would be unjust to

unanimous wishes at that, had been
trampled on "as proposed and sug
gested by some newspapers and politi
cians." There is too much "govern
ment by newspaper" in this country
For our part, we disagree with Club
Number Two and we think it will be no
special inconvenience to \hc voters to
come and hear Senator Tillman?one of
the best speakers in ibis country, lie
says that the Yankees sometimes pay a
dollar a seat to hear him. Every man
that hears him here, in spite of the re
solutions, unanimously adopted, of Club
Number Two, will be in pocket a dol
lar. If a thousand people attend, it
will prove that had the program of
Club Number Two been carried out, the
people would have been out a thousand
dollars. However, the Club meant well.
The situation has changed.
SMALL COUNTIES AND POLITICS.
Greenville and Spartanburg are rap
idly growing towns. Including their
suburbs, each now has a population of
20,oi)o approximately. Greenville per
haps has more, - 25,000 in a radius of
three miles from the court house. In
ten years this number may be* swelled
j to 35,000.
The carving out of a new county from
territory of Greenville. Spartanburg
and Laurcns will hasten the time when
the towns will ho dominant in political
affairs. We do not know that this will
do any harm; in Charleston county
where the country people are very
few, the city gives them more than
their share of the offices; but it is just
as well to state the facts.
The growth of the town.; in the
Piedmont has been tremendous in re
cent years. If the territory shall \?
sliced into small counties, the political
power of the city voters as compared]
with that of the rural voters will be
multiplied. We trust that never again J
will demagogues cause ill fooling be
tween town and country, for it is ut
terly senseless, our interests are all
one; but there can be no harm in point
ing out the obvious political result:
from the making of small counties in
the Piedmont, whore the towns are
The primary plan for nominating
congressmen may not be in operation
in 1916. Who can tell? In that ease
and with growth of the towns of Laur
cns, Union, Spartanburg and Greenville
continuing at the same rate that it has
for tin? last ten years, the city would
control affairs possibly in each county.
The creation of a rural county, as
"Fairview" would be, would make lliis
all the easier. If any question such as
the division of liquor taxes should come
up between the towns and country |
population, the latter would be at the
mercy of the former.
If the rural people do not want to
lose political power, they will voto for
no small counties in this part of the

Air. I.yon's Personal Character.
Under tho caption, "Tillman Unjust
to I.yon" the Abbeville Press and Ban
ner, one of the strongest dispensary
papers in the stale expresses the gen
eral sentiment of tho state in regard to
the attack of Senator Tillman on Mr.
Frnacr Lyon. Wo reproduce the article
Mr. Tillman in his spcec-h in Colum
bia last Monday was bitterly personal
in his reference to Mr. J. Frazcr i.yon. i
The arrangement of Pact, and argu
ment on the same is fair and legitimate
as long as parliamentary usages are!
observed and as long*"as the civility'
which usually governs gentlemen is
present. Tho questions at issue should
,be settled by th< howing of facts and
not by the u <> of abusive terms. There
is no use for anybody to assail Mr. J
Lyon's character before an audience
which know a him.
Tho Prei i and !:; nncr knows his char
acter is ? and nobody behoves that'
he would knowingly make a statement]
which wa i not in accord with the facts. !
Mr. Tillman is perhaps the greatest
man that South Carolina has ever sent
to Washington. His hands are clean,
and nobody doubts his integrity. The
State of South Carolina love.; him and
Mr. I.yon is young man al tho very
threshold of a useful and honorable ca
reer. The people of l i; native county
honored him with a seat in tho House
of Representatives. The House of
ii( presentativea honored him by placing
him on the investigating committee. In
the discharge of unpleasant dutie s he
has no doubi incurred ill will in some !
in lances, and on the other hand, if he j
is not proud of tho words of praise and j
commendation that have been given to!
him he is more or less than a man. To |
be pleased al tho ovidonces of approval j
that have cine to him is natural.
Such plea aire furnishes no ground on I
tho pan of any man to Beck to destroy
him by efforts to ruin his reputation.
A:i impartial jury would hardly say
that the offensive expressions were ci
thOr deserving or becoming.
Mr. Tillman is a man old enough to
be tho father of Mr, i.yon. He occu-1
pi< .; as !;i,rh a position with tho people j
was ever hold by any man. As an |
old man, as a groat and well known
man, as ll.e distinguished Senator at j
Washington, if would hardly be a com-1
mendable act lo seek to ruin an honora
ble young man. This, too, in the ab
sence of tho victim of his wrath, when
ho could not defend himself. The dif
ferences in their physical powers and
their ages would preclude the possi
bility of bis resenting it.
Surely Mr. Tillman is able to take
care of himsolf without taking advan
tage of another.
In the cause of juatico and fair play
we protest against Mr. Tillmnn's un
parliamentary attack upon Mr. I.yon.
As tho renders <d' iho Press and Ban
ner know wo are ;? friend to Senator
Tillman, Wo an supporting him and
defending the dispensary against all
comers and ngninsl all attacks. Mr.
Lyon is our neighbor, and if Ills view:-;
"?ii tho dispensary coincided with tho
views of tills editor wo would vote for
him against the world. Ho proposes
to ii.i rfero with tho state dispensary,
for this reason aloho we are not sup
porting him. But In all conscience, we
must protest at the cruel and unbecom
ing attack which Mr. Tillman has made
upon him. Mr. Lyon doc.; not deserve'
the treatment which has been nCCQI'dod
'o him by Mr. Tillman. And Mr. Till
man In his better momenta will admit!
