CALLS FOR FUNDS
John Gary Brans Asks All Patriotic
Men and Women of South Carolina
to Come to the Aid of the Committee
Columbia, 8. 0., Sept. 5.?Pointing
out that the Democratic party in South
Carolina is si *oly distressed. John
Gary Evans, tht chairman of the otato
executive committee, today, Issued a
call to the Democrats of the state ask
ing that they contribute to the fund
to investigate the charges of fraud In
connection with the recent primary.
The following is the call to the
Democrats of South Carolina!
"The Democratic party in this state
is sorely distressed. For the first time
in our history white men are charged
with cheating and defrauding white
men in our primary election. The
elections In every county In the state
are contested und your executive com
mittee is in possession of sufficient
evidence and charges to warrnnt It In
making a thorough and complete in
vestigation of these charges In so far
as In Its power lies. The committee
has no machinery for getting at the
proof of and must rely upon the good
and true mon of the Btate who be
lieve in honest elections to assist It
in its efforts. If you know of fraud
and irregularities tell It; If you hear
of such tell It and the committee will
sift It. We an? determined that right
shall prevail nod we care not for the
personal Interest of any candidate or
candidates but tor the honor and life
of the party anil the salvation of the
primary system. Help us preserve It.
"Your executive committee is with
out funds, the only source of its rev
enue being from assessments of candi
dates in the primary election. Those
were made without any knowledge or
expectation of the present situation.
We must havo funds with which to
defray the expenses of our committee
and employ such assistance as may
be necessary to secure the evidence.
Will South Carolinians allow this In
vestigation to fail for lack of a few
dollars? I am sure that you will not
if you follow the lead of a noble South
Carolina sir! who earns 'her living by
her own endeavors, but who loves the
fair name of South Carolina. She has
voluntarily enclosed her check for $.">
to be applied in this investigation.
Dot every patriotic citizen help In this
cause by send inn to Wille Jones, treas
urer of the party at Columbia, what he
or she can give for the preservation
of the purity of the ballot box.
"This is not a call to arms but an
appeal to the virtuous men and women
of South Carolina to wipe out the stain
if any be found upon the fair exscutch
eon of the state.
"Act promptly and make true your
motto, 'animus opibusque paratl."
"JOHN GARY EVANS,
"Chairman of bite Executive Com
Children and Horses.
The following testimonial is con
densed from a bulletin issuel by the
Illinois Ranker'? Assoeiaion:
"in a certain district the farmers
decided to Improve the breed of their
horses. Thoy formed a company and
paid three hundred dollars for evory
fine imported animal. Realizing that
so valuable horse ought to have In
telligent care, they employed a good
man at seventy-five dollars a month
to look after him. Three members
of the horso company comprised the
school hoard for the district. Their
most Important duty in connection
with the school consisted of selecting
n teacher. The one they hired was
a slip of a girl who hardly knew
enough to boil water without burn
ing it; but she had one qualification
that proved to be Irrestlble to those
directors?8h0 was wllllny to work
for thirty dollars a month."
The only way to abolish athirty
riallar-a-inonth teacher?the bulletin
adds?is to abolish the thlrty-dollar
n-month school. Of late years much
effort has been expended to raise the
quality of the public-school instruc
tion by raising the qualilcations for
a teacher's certllcate. In some states
the examinations for a certificate of
the lowest grade would make many
a college professor perspire: hut all
that goes less than half way. Salaries
should be raised also. There la not n
rural school district In the United
States that connot pay fifty dollars
a month for a teacher. There Is not
one that ought not to be ashamed to
