Between two and three hundred dis

delegates to the convent ion come from
every town and section of the state.
As guests of the city they will he hand
somely entertained. In preparing for
their reception, however, The Adver

not too early to begin a campaign of
cleaning up all public and private
premises, repairing and painting fenc

ed; in short putting everything in or

Democratic; nomination for vice pres

ful Democrat" which we print today,
in character, ability and attainments
Mr. Waring is better equipped for the

If Southern Democrats are to have

If South Carolina Is at any time to

vould fill the bill.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch,

"SPOILING A GOOD RECORD."

or complicity in the murder of her

If there has hern in recent years a
governor with a softer heart than D.
II >yward possessed, that governor
ivns M. B, McSwoi ney. When a peti
tion for pardon was refused by both
McSweeney cud Heyward, it Is safe
o say that few valid reasons for

Gov, Ansel has been by kindly news

me of his first pardons was granted

?ras represented that Dr. Leo had.
luring his imprisonment, been cured
>f the liquor habit and we believe it
.vas on this account chiefly tho pardon
ivas granted. Within a few months
ifter his release from prison, Lee died
from the effects of dissipation.
Now Gov. Ansel grants a pardon to
Mrs. Fannie Carson, who wns a party
o the assassination of her own hus

by the blow of the ax, this woman

man whom she had sworn to love and
When the pardon record of Gov.
Ansel Is critically examined, his ac

minor cases with which he Is cred

political influence, such as was exor

"Faithful Democrat" I'rwes Claims of

To the Editor of The Advertiser: I
have noticed the mention of the
name of Mr. Thomas R. Waring of
Charleston in connection with the
democratic nomination lor the vice
presidency. I have not been able to
determine whether the writers were in
earnest or not. However that may be
I desire to second the nomination of
Mr. Waring for that ?reat ofnee in all
I have known all of the governors,
senators and other public men in
South Carolina since 1876 more or less

I am saying, none of them lias been
Mr. Waring'a superior in broad states
manship, wide information, general
sympathies and complete and well
rounded capabilities. I believe that no
South Carolinian could be selected
who would IUI the office of vice presi
dent of the United States more grace
fully, more efficiently, and witli more
credit to his state and his party.
1 believe Mr. Waring would be a
worthy and comparable successor to

Such recognition is South Carolina's

Know, my dear reader, that every
body talks about you when you are
not present In quite a different way
from what they would talk were you
face to face with them. It Is human
nature. We are all critics of one an
other. Even your dearest friend
knows that you have little faults. And
when tho occasion comes he speaks
to others of these little faults. He does
this even though he Is your best and
most reliable friend. And you do the
same by him. We all speak of one
another's faults. We can't help It. We
were born that way. We don't really
mean anything by It. Hut we do It.
