S'partanbmurg, S. C..
August 6. 1914.
lEditor Laitrains Advertiser:
Lautretns, S. C.
I wish to pirotest against the unreca
sonable action of the county chairman,
in bxing the. itinerary for Congtress.
I utnderstand that Sam Lancaster,
Mills Mooney and Mr. Sarratt of Uni
Ion, met in the ofilee of Sam Lanham
for the puirpose of fixing our congt'es
sional campaign. I had addressed
these gentlemen in a letter, asking
that we have at least thtree meetings
in each county and I understand that
i. Batrrait insisted upon this, but
was overruled by the other two, who
are both supp~orters of Congressman
I hiave been tunable to get Congress
man .Johnson to agree on campaign
meetings, where we could all three
he present and address the voters of
the distriict andi it is of course, to htis
advantage to huave ns, jew carfmiaign
meetings as possible. I wish to ask
the general public, if it is fair to
Cetonel Duncan and myself, to re
cjuirwe us to pay two hundred andi fifty
dollars to enter this campaign and
then limit its to four meetings, when
candidates for the Legislidture and
other ofleors are given a greater nium
ber of meetings in each county and
pay a great deal loss for entering the
race. I do not believe that the people
will sanction the action of the couTi
ty chairmen, for I believe that the vot
era wish to hear all three candidates
discuss the issues in the campaign.
