FOR GOVERNOR IN 1910
Comments by Various Newspapers on the
Tho Newberry Observer and the Lau
rons Advertiser have already named
Mr. C. C. Featherstone, of Laurens, as
the logical candidate in 1910, as Mr.
Featherstone withdrew from the race
this year upon an assurance from Gov
ernor Ansel that he would advocate on
the stump and recommend to the legis
laturu Mr. Fcatherstone's plan for han
dling the liquor question a state pro
hibition law with option to counties to
vote in dispensaries instead of voting
them out, as at present. The govern
or's advocacy of this plan on the stump
was lost sight of in his defence of his
administration from the attacks of Mr.
It is also suggested by some of the
county papers that Mr. Richard I. Man
ning, who was Governor Ansel's oppo
nent in 1906, will again be a candidate
in 1910. Only Mr. Manning's advocacy
of the state dispensary system kept
him out of the way.
Lieutenant Governor McLcodhas had
the second place all to himself without
a light, being first elected and then re
elected without opposition, and what
would be more natural than that he
should try for first place in Did? by
the way, it is sometimes forgotten that
Mr. McLeod is a first cousin of lion. K.
1>. Smith, near senator from South
.1. Fr?ser Lyon was given one of the
handsomest endorsements that the state
has ever given a young man in his se
lection to the office of attorney general
in 1906; he has been re-nominated with
out opposition and given more time to
fulfill his promise to "put stripes on the
grafters." If he docs fulfill that prom
ise can any one beat, him for governor
or for anything else.'
Col. VV. W. Lumpkin, of Columbia,
who made the race for tin; United
Slates senate as a prohibitionist, is
looked upon as likely gubernatorial tim
ber since be has got acquainted with the !
folk and invited t hem all to come to see
Capt. .lohn G. Richards, Jr., the leg
islative leader from Kcrshaw, who
wants the lien law repealed, and who
also favors state prohibition without
any option:;, may be among those to
aspire to the governorship in 1910.
There are many others tied out in the
hushes, and the events of the next two
years may bring out some horses that
are now dark and eliminate others that
are now in the running. Hut you can't
keep folk from talking politics, espe
cially after the election.- Hoy tin News
It is too early to talk about the next
governor after Ansel, but the logical
candidate is C. C. Featherstone, of
Laurens. Newberry Observer. Looks
that way here. Anderson Mail.
