LOWINDES J. BROWNING
OUT FOR GOVERNOR
Union Mum Makes Definite Statement
to That Effect and GJveB bli Plat
Columbia, Oct. 30.?Lowndes J.
Drowning, of Sedalla, in Union coun
ty, announced yesterday that he would
Im a candidate for governor of South
Carolina in the iDefcnocratlc primary
Mr. Browning has been in public
life in South Carolina Tor a number of
years, having served three terms in
tho house of representatives. Ho was
chairman of the ways and moans com
mittee during tho session of I0ll-'12.
He was not a candidate for reelection
to the house in l!U2. Mr. Drowning
lias been a farmer all Iiis life ami is
tit present president of tho Union
County Farmors' union. He was pres
ident of the Union County Pair asso
ciation for two years, declining ro
Mr. Drowning issued yesterday tho
folio wing outline of his platform:
"I will bo a candidate for governor
in IfJl'l in tin Democratic primary.
Summarized briefly, my platform is as
"First. Kvory white Democrat
HllOUld be allowed to vote, provided he
win qualify himself to maintain the
action of the Democratic primary in
tho general election. No man should
be allowed to participate In tho nam
ing of a State and county ticket as a
I Democrat and then support some
other party In tho general election for
president and vice president, as was
done in 1012 by certain alleged mem
bers of the Progressive party.
"Second. I believe in the thorough
reform of our financial system. If
properly regulated, tho personal prop
erty tax can and should bo eliminated.
Utldor our present systi'.n, a citizen
eatl not hide his household mid
kitchen furniture, his live stock if a
farmer, his stock of goods if a mer
chant, but he can and very frequently
does hide his personal property if it
Is principally invested in mortgages,
stocks, bonds and tho like. This tax
should I .' a lax on income and thus
you will reach those most able to pay
am) tho.e who receive the greatest
protection from government.
"Third. I shall advocate a thor
ough reform of our school system. The
constitutional school tax should be
made a State fund Instead of a county
ru!!'.'.. Thus the richer count !e?? would
aid the poorer counties, ami all the
children of our State would receive
equal benefit. Knob school (list rie;
should, as at present, be allowed to
supplement this state fund by local
levies for their Individual benefit. The
State, however, should guarantee thai
each school should run a certain pe
riod and if the present constitutional
school tax does not raise sulTlolonl
rovonuc for this purpose, the state
levy should be increased.
"Fourth. I believe in a thorough
reform and simplification of our judi
cial procedure, Whereby justice may
!>e obtained in a reasonable length of
time. I am sure that the present con
gestion of OUr dockets COUld be re
lieved were there a commission of
three, whose decisions would he final
as regards all damage suits. This
would bo hard on a few lawyers, but
't would benefit greatly the poor em
ployes who bring such suits against
corporations, provided tho decisions of
this commission be final.
Knforce All I,ans.
??Fifth. I shall advocate the en
forcement of all laws on the statute
books. If they are good, the State will
reap the benefit. If they are had, the
necessity for their repeal will be more
"Sixth. Some candidates profess to
ignore the fact that two political fac
tions do exist within the Democratic
party of this State. With equal jus
tice they could deny that the sun is
'he luminary of the day. I belong to
that wing of the Democratic party of
this State which believes in a ropre
Rontatlvo form of government found
ed on the principles of our State and
national constitutions, and fltm op
posed to boss rule' as exemplified by
lluerta In Mexico and various 'bosses'
in this and other states. I am the
candidate of no 'boss' nor any news
papor, but am asking for the office of I
governor on my record, 1 believe that
tho executive, legislative and judicial
departments of our government are
supreme in their respective spheres.
The authority of one should not he
encroached upon by that of another.
"There are numerous minor reforms
that I might mont'on, but this In brief
outlines the principles upon which I
shall ask the support of my parly as
? caniddntu for governor In the Demo
cratic primary in 1014.
