in appealing to the voters of Lau
retta county to support their fellow
citizen in the primary next Tuesday,,
it should he necessary to discuss only ,
one thing -the solid, honest, sincere
character of C. C. Featherstone and
the untarnished record which he pos
sesses ami which the leading business
men and the clorgy of Lau tens have
endorsed in pronounced terms. Hut
qVOU to review his record, a record
that "the breath of scandal can annoy
but not besmirch" would b" super
litmus in talking to the people of his
home county. We all know him and
knowing him, coming in daily con
tact with this man. a tower or moral
strength, a synonym of sincerity, we
have become better citizens and as
a whole a better community*! If he
is elected governor, and Cod forbid
otherwise, the town will miss him.
the county will miss him but our
sacrifice will be to the everlasting
gain of the entire State and to the
cause of good government.
Throwing aside the invincible ar.
tfinneut of superiority and there is still
every reason thinkable why Lnurens
county should vote solidly for Mr.
First as to the whiskey question,
That has been settled. Local Option
has won an 1 decisively. It is no
longer the prohibitionist against the'
local optionist. The election of Mr.
Feat In rstone or the election of Cole
L. Blense can have no more effect up
on local option or no local option In I
this State than it would have In China.
Platforms have been swept away. It
is man to man. Thus narrowed down
yon have no reason for voting other- '
wise than for Featherstone. You can
not consider yourself morally bound
to support the principle of local op
tion, which you might have supported
with sincerity the first primary, be
cause that principle has been elimi
Another reason for supporting Mr.
Featherstone and one that no business
man can overlook is this: The reputa
tion of l.aurens county is at stake. Do
you realize that the rest of the State
is criticising us for our vote of last
Tuesday? Witness this cutting criti
cism from one of our leading dailies:
"Laurens county did not reflect any
credit upon itself when it gave a ma
jority against Mr. Featherstone. Let
it be honed that that county will right
the wrong at the second primary."
That little paragraph should sting
the pride of every loyal citizen. it
Insinuates a lack of pride in our town
and In our county. It voices the senti
ment of ridicule that pervades the
State. From a business standpoint
note the result of this sentiment?
What outsider would care to consider
Laurens as a future home If it has
no pride in Itself, no loyalty to Its
own sons, especially when that son is
a recognized leader among men. The
answer Is this: Few. if any. Ask your
self the question: would I cast my lot
among people who have no pride of
home, no reasonable loyalty to those
struggling to upbuild it? Ami the an
swer will he. No.
Her leaders, undeniably worthy of
respect, yet unrespec.ted at home, \
means unpopularity for the town'
abroad. This unpopularity will pre-'
vent many a good citizen from making
this his homo. Then how Is the town j
to grow and how is our business to
increase? Think over It. This is an ,
important side to the question.
Now this, and be sure you remem
ber it?we must not be satisfied with
convincing ourselves. There are oth
ers who may not realize the Import
ance of supporting Mr. Featherstone.
Seek them out. Convince them and
thereby benefit yourself, your county
and your State. Do not he too sure
of victory. Overconftdence can do
Remember then that when you work
for Featherstone you are working for
your homo, for your children, for your
town, county and State and for truth,
honesty, Justice and Rood government.

j e. C. FEATHERSTONE, THE LAURENS MAN POR GOVERNOR ||
As Viewed in Anderson.
With the whiskey question out of
the way, the former opponents of Mr.
Featherstone argue, tho issue is now
one of men instead of measures. And
know ins-, both Featherstone and Bloase,
they argue that Featherstone is the
better and safer man to bo elected
it is blleved by many who under
stand State politics that Hlease will
get few If any more votes in the
secdnd primary than he got In the
first primary. They believe that
Mr. Blease's record in political mat
ters in the State Is so well known
that the great majority of the peo
ple will not support him for govern
We believe that Mr. Featherstone
lost many vote In the first primary
because of the ovorconlldence of his
friends. This was true here In An
derson county, where he was born
and raised. No particular work was
done for him, while Blense and Mc
Leod and the others had workers all
over the county. If the same work'
Had been done for Featherstone that j
was done for the other candidates he j
would have led easily. This was no
doubt true in other counties.
But we think it will be very dif
ferent in the second primary, The j
friends of Mr. Featherstone, and
those who are not particularly his
friends but who do not want to see j
Mr. Hlease elected governor, realize
now that they must bestir them
selves, and they, will do so. They ,
will go to work, and Mr. Feather
stone will be elected governor by a
safe and convincing majority.
As (lie other papers have said, the
Issue now is men and not measures.

We have seen it coming for years.
Thai is why we believed so firmly
thai the second race for governor
would be between Messrs. Feather

progress the last decisive battle be
tween those who wore opposed to the
State dispnsary and those who would
reestablish the conditions for which
i he dispensary stood. Those who
were in sympathy with the state dis
pensary and who endorsed the con
duel of its management are for Mr.
Hlease. Those who are opposed are
for Mr. Fenthersti mo. The dispen

Now that the first primary is over
and C. C. Featherstone and Cole L.
Hlease must go to the ballot box in a
second primary, we will say here that
our people have two very different
kind of men to vote for?different In
character, different in principle and
different in political record.
Mr. Featherstone stands for prohi
bition and Mr. Hlease stands for whis
key "local option" he calls It.
Mr. Featherstone has fought for1
prohibition all his life?ever since he
was old enough to know the evil of
whiskey. True, he refused to run
against Governor Ansel two years ago,
but that does not say thai Mr. Feath
erstone had deserted the prohibition
Since Mr. Hlease has been in poli
tics, according to the record, he has
stood for whiskey?more whiskey and
more whiskey, and now lie has been
selected by the whiskey interests to
take the place of Governor Ansel.
It is needless for us to ask the peo
ple of Chesterfield county to compare
the records, both public and private
Featherstone and Hlease.
Mr. Featherstone deserves the fa
vorable consideration of every true
citizen?of every man who has self
pride?Of every man who has the fu
ture of dear old South Carolina at
heart and wants to see her prosper??
who has the welfare of the coining
generation at heart.
We have prohibition in Chesterfield
county and therefore it Is not neces
sary for us to point out the advan
tages derived therefrom.
Who will you vote for on Tuesday.
September 13th?Featherstone or
I'.base Cheraw Chronicle.
So many people have asked us about
it that we have decided to give It out
although we bad not intended hand
ing out any dope on this subject. The
vote for governor In the second pri
mary election on Sept. 13, will stand
about as follows:
Ciprlan C. Featherstone 58.000
Coleman L. Blease 48.000
It Is not often that The Times feels
that Its duty to Us constituency de
mands that It take a stand In the pri
mary election' between men. but we
do think that it is our duty to say as
emphatically as possibly that every
citizen, regardless of his views on the
liquor question or on any other ques
tion, should get out at once and work
as hard as he can and as effectively
as he can for C. C. Featherstone for
governor. The returns were in the
nature of a surprise to many people
who thought that they had their fin
ger on the pulse of the public. Waive
everything to work for the election of
Featherstone. We do not deny Mr.
Blease's ability or his strength with
the people; he is a most fascinating
man, but In our cool, deliberate judg
ment, backed by our varied experi
ence, we feel that It would he a seri
ous mistake to make Mr. Blease gov
ernor of the State, and that the voters
would not, and could not. he aware of
the mistake until after he had made
it; so that the safest thing to do is
to take the advice of those In whose
sincerity and disinterestedness you
can have no doubt and vote for the
election of Featherstone. Don't run
tho risk of a mistake.?Florence Times
Featherstone the Winner.
The governor's ruce has narrowed
down to Blease and Featherstone for
the second primary. The race be
tween these will he close. Mc.Leod's
vote will he divided between them
about half and half. Most of Hyatt's
vote will probably go to Featherstone.
More than half of Richard's vote will

McLeod'8 vote It is our opinion that
he will do neither; that he will con
siderably increase his own vote in the
second primary, but will not be able
to get near all of McLeod's vote, nor
much of Hyatt's and Richards'. The
result, therefore, is likely to be a
close race between him ami Feather

friends of both will have to hustle.
Blease was a supporter to the last
ditch of the old State dispensary and
denied up to the closing of It and
probably still denies that there was
any corruption In it. The State dis

Featherstone in Laurens.
Mr. Hlease with characteristic po
litical shrewdness, is quick to direct
attention to the facl that in the first
primary he received more votes in
Mr. Featherstone's own county than
Mr. Featherstone did. It is a legiti
mate political maneuver.
Tho circumstances is not difficult to
understand. Mr. Hlease lias made
several campaigns for State oilier.
He has built Up throughout the State
af ollowlng that is remarkably loyal,
a tribute to the strength of his per
sonality. Nowhere is this Hlease fol
lowing more loyal than in the county
of Laurens. As a candidate for gov
ernor Mr. Hlease could probably poll
a plurality in Laurens against any
opponent. His ability to do so would
be no reflection on h/s opponent. The
Hlease vote in Laurens is a Hlease
vote. It is not antl-Featherstone. Out
of :;,200 votes cast In that county
all but 220 went to rtlrase and Feath
erstone and while Hlease received 120
votes more than Featherstone, Hlease
did not get a majority, according to
the returns at this writing.
In Newberry, tho home of Mr.
Blease, be bring mayor of the city of
that name, Hr. Blease received barely
100 votrs in excess of a majority, and
Featherstone was the second candi
date in that county.
The vote a man reorivrs in tii? own
county in a race such as that of last
Tuesday does not necessarily indicate
tho respect in whi<-\ he is held by his
neighbors: it may indicate Ids popu
larity but under conditions prevailing
in this campaign it mov? probnbly in
dicates the popularity ol the issue he
represents. There are few btiisness
