IN THE PIEDMONT
Humor-, tliut John M. Cannon, Esq.,
will Run for Congress. Col. Babb
Often Mentioned in tdjiitnnl's Ituee.
A Bpeclal to The Columbia Record
written by W. P. Hoard, a one-time
"Bull .Moose" from Reldvlllo, Spartan
burg county, might be Interesting as
bearing on polities In this section:
"Roidsyille, S. C.. Nov. 14.?Up here
in the Fourth Congressional district,
politics is warming up and the air is
full of rumors ami counter rumors.
"it is often heard In this district
that Mr. Cannon, a prominent attorney
of LaurenBi Will very probably bo a
candidate for congress to represent
the Fourth district. Many of his
friends speak highly of Mr. Cannon
and say that "there is no doubt but
what he can he elected if he will
make the race."
"it is pointed out that Mr. Cannon
is a very brainy and substantial law
yer and a man of good character, and
was one of Governor Bleaao's chosen
friends to represent him last year
during the election contest when
staunch and true friends as well as
able lawyers wore needed. Mr. Can
non, so it is said, is also a member of
tho Govornor's staff.
"I have not been able to Interview
Mr. Cannon on this yet, and cannot
confirm these roports, so taking it on
the theory that "where there is so
much smoke there must be some ?
fire" send It in for what it is worth. 1
However, from what could he gath
ered thero is no doubt but what if
Mr. Cannon decides to run his many
friends in both factions (for he seems
to he well liked in both) will make
him a very formidable opponent.
"One often hears mention of Col.
O. W. Btlbb also in connection with
tiie adjutant's office, and up this way
it seems to lie taken for granted that
Col. Rabb will he in the race with
out doubt to succeed Adjutant and In
spector General Moore.
At present. Col. Babb Is t;ie only
man, known to he a Hlease man, that
is being considered by the people, but
there is yet plenty of time for others,
and we don't know what a day may
bring forth. There is also some talk
here and there of a man entering the
lists against Attorney Genoral I'ee
ples. Hut all that can be learned
about this rumor Is that a strong up
country lawyer. who is a staunch
Blenso man. is seriously considering
entering the race next year.
Another elusive rumor, not vet ri .1
down, is to the effect that a "dark
horse is tied out in the woods" to en
ter the senatorial race next year. It
is claimed by some that It is going
lo be easy to beat Hlease next year.
These knowing ones point out that
"?lie extreme and inconsiderate ele
ment in both the Hlease" and McLau
rin camps in tholr haste to 'get next'
if not stopped soon will cause a se
rious rupture between these two men.
and they they will eat each other up.
While Tillmnn'8 attack on both Hlease
and McLaurln will utterly destroy
Elmith, leaving the road open to a
good strong, conservative man." They
claim that such a man is in view and
is only waiting to see bow the pres
ent controversies will turn out. There
is a persistent rumor up this way also
that several of the various candidates
for governor have what Is termed in
Europe an "entente cordlalo." With
sonic prominent Blcasolte candidates
promising mutual support on the
grapevine route order. In fact, it is
stated that a prominent Bloaso man
in Spnrtiinblirg, presumably a candi
date, though this is not definite, re
cently, upon his return from Colum
bia, expressed a desire to see the
Vpcoplo get together" and said he
would help "heal the breach." That
looks like the "lion and lamb will lie
down In peace."
The friends of Congressman John
son lire also very active and appear
to he very sanguine that he will win
next year. It seems that they also
have reason to expect assistance
from the various gubernatorial can
didates sub rosa, and likewise will
render aid to them.
There is talk also of a prominent
Greonvlllo politician coming out at
the last moment as a compromise
candidate, not having mixed In the
campaign at nil last year, though it
is believed that he voted for Hlease.
"Till * such a man. not opposi?g the
govenor'a candidacy for the senate,
and otherwise popular among the
working people and equally accept
able lo the antl's. will be a dangerous
Opponent there is no manner of doubt.
Things arc beginning to move up In
this Piedmont section and when they
do start they are likely to make the
"wheels go round."
"The political procession Is so ka
leidoscopic in Its vai >UB aspects just
now . the. rumor of today Is quite like
ly to be the fact of tomorrow. And
the fact of today Is likely to be the
Iridescent dream of yesterday and a
week back or beyond Is either an
cient history or the "dim and distant
future." However, the friends of
nearly all the candidates for governor
are taking much comfort from Sena
tor Tlllman's letter. They say that
last year Governor Hlease so Im
pressed his followers with the sin of
"ilaskclltsm and so many old-line
'Reformers' are in his faction that a
l man who did not support the TUlman
ticket at the general election In 1890
can never get very much of the
"Hlease Vote" now. While on the
other hand a 'Haskellito' who has
gone over to the TUlman and Hlease
factions Blnce, Is looked upon as a
traitor and can expect no help from
the old-line ^conservatives. I? looks
at present as though the whole po
litical proposition next vear will he
i gviic-i'a! Imixup '??iu tree for a" flwht
That every candidate for whatever of
fice is to be an Ishmaelite with his
'hand against every man and every
man's hand against him.' A great
many people are enquiring for the
whereabouts of Professor .lohn ('Ink
scales and R. A. Cooper, erstwhile
candidates for governor. When last
heard of politically they were headed
for the executive chair and their
friends are fearful lest they collide
with Richard I. Manning somewhere
and got lost in the shuttle
"Wo hope for the best, for they are
both good men in their separate lines
Of work. It looks as though there
will soon be more to write about.
"Another well defined rumor is that
Judge Ira II. Jones Will be a candi
date to succeed Associate Justice!
Woods on the supreme court bench."
I don't believe in all work and no
play, and like decent amusement, but
it is to be hoped that the protest of a
great number of good citizens that has
been interposed against the coining
of the carnival has been affective to
slim it out.
If however, it should get here, then
let all good people discountenance
and discourage by refusing to patron
What does the average carnival
bring U l anyway? Is it not a carnival
of vice and Immorality, with its low
gambling, lewdness and dissipation?
The demoralization of tylbor for a
week or ton days, and the carrying
away of several thousand dollars from
those classes that need it most, is no
small matter. But is this all? No, its
debasing and poisonous influence up
on the young, outweigh the matter.-,
of dollars and cents.
Does the city want revenue? Then
add a little more to the high taxes,
it will be cheaper in til-;- end for no
taxes are so heavy as those that come
indirectly from the license issued by
towns to the saloon, low vaudeville or
shows, that prey lipon virtue and
morality, upon the very lit'e blood of
society. Rather than have the aver
age carnival, It were a thousand times
cheaper and better for the good citi
zens to assemble in mass meeting and
subscribe a sum to take the place of
any license fee had In contemplation.
I will freely give something, while at
the same time believing that a town
that can't live without the license
from a saloon, or other low vicious
Institutions has little title to life The
most prosperous communities in the
world will not license such things.
