WITH THE STATE CAMPAIGNERS
IN THEIR COUNTY-TO-COUNTY TOUR
Columbia. August 6.?Sweltering
through! a hot summer morning, some
thirty candidates for State oflicers ad
dressed the voters of Itiehland county
today. The meeting was almost fea
tureless. It was expected that "under
the dome of the State Capitol" there
might be poured into the campaign a
little to enliven it a bit. but such was
not the case. They were very few in
cidents that raised the meeting above
that of a debating society in actual en
thusiasm. There was marked atten
tion, it is true, on the part of the au
dience and when a particular candi
date advanced something out of the
ordinary run he was applauded, and
even cheered once in a while, but there
were no hair-raising incidents.
The most dramatic incident, perhaps,
was when Candidate Cole L. Hlease
in that highly theatrical manner of
his, paused when he inquired if the
author of an article reflecting upon his
candidacy was in the audiene?. No one
responded and Mr. Blease went on
amid cheers. .Mr. Hlease had invited
the author to meet him on the sta?e
All the candidates were listened to

inal laws. He lamented the fact that
the laws are so lax. that this country
has more homicides than any other
country. Mr. Lyon read from an ad
dress before the attorneys General at
Mr. Lyon said it was hard to point
out remedies. He referred to the de
fence of forgery of notes in civil cases,
and the fact that no criminal prose
cutions are instituted. Mr. Lyon called
attention to the recent bank alleged
misappropriation of funds in Charles
ton. He said that there is no machin
ery now. but the legislature should
pass a law to the effect that in civil
cases, wherever forgery is shown, the
clerk of court or someone else should
report it to the grand jury and crim
inal prosecution should follow.
Mr. Lyon was presented with three
"I am here today to probe the office
of my opponent." said Barnard B.
Evans in opening his address. He said
the taxes of the people are an import

mission had $.1,300,000 of the people's
taxes. He again referred to the Ander

He charged that $1M,D00 In common

Mr. Duncan. "These men say less about i

have to drop it to let it cool." Some one )
endeavored to ask the speaker a <pies- i

nor's mansion was good enough to live
in. The chairman would not permit
tho interruption. Duncan made a
smart reply, and the incident closed.
"Those five other men in the race

all after me. Duncan is in the lead."

newspapers, especially one. in his U8U- ?
