COOPER TELLS WIHY
[E ENTERED RACE
Also Outlines His Differences with
(governor Manning. Says Ho Would
Not Will on the governor's Mistakes.
Solicitor II. A. Cooper, candidate,
recently gave out the following state
ment to the press:
it has been stated in some of the
newspapers published in the State
that I said at Ilamberg that in case
1" had beln governor I would have
acted as the present governor has
with reference to the iuestions
which he propounded to me. The
papers do not undertake to publish
Just what I said. In order that the
public may have an opportunity of
Judging for themselves as to the
proper construction to put upon my
remarks, the following is substantial
ly what 1 said at the llamberg meet
"It has been my purpose to make
this race without criticising the pub
lie or private record of any competit
or of mine, because if I amt elected
to the otilee I want to be able to say
that I did not try to win votes on ac
count of the mistakes or shortcomings
of others. lBut Governor .Manning
has seen fit to ask me1 certain specill
ic questions and insists that I shall
Reason for Entering Itace.
111 first question is "Vhy is Mr.
Cooper in this race trying to defeat
Ie, when he made the race two
years ago on practically the same
platform that I did?" Now, say fel
low-citizens, this is a free country,
and any person who is qualified, ac
cording to the rules of the democratic
party, has the right to offer his
services for any office. I might ask
tile same <Iuestion of any candidate
in this campaign. For instance, why
is Mr. )ove running for secretary of
State? Why is Mr, Fant in tle race
for railroad comminissioner? Why
does )r. .11. Ilack offer for the state
senate from llamberg couinty? Who
gave .th1enu il lnissiont to run1 for
these ofilces? The question answers
Itseift. When any man holding pub -
lie ollice dares to -tuestion the right
of another to offer against hifliv and
ithereby asserts title to the ollier, It
is liine for some one to oppose hitn.
The offlie belongs to tho people, and
it. is for 11e1n to say who shall servc
The governorl asks again, what I
wVold hatve done wVith reference to
the (n11foreelneInt of law iln Charleston.
Two years ago I .Mated ont (Very
sitlml)p ill. Soutihg ('aroltia. a11d4 have
'epealedl again this year, that if nie-..
led governor I will enforce the Iaw
in every secion of South C(arolina,
frot the mountains: to the sea. If
a jury, after a fair and lilirlial
trial, finds that one of your citizelns
has Violated the law, 1 will never
disturb that finding unless 1 am1 con
Vineed tihat the verdict. is wrong. The
pardoning power was not given to
the governor to enable himl to reward
his friends or punish his enemies,
but for the purpose of orrectling
i'iusitlon 1n Chaiieillhs.

lu mia-i uce Act, Unwise.
The governor asks again, if I would
have signed the insurance bill. I have
already stated lily position in refer
ence to this matter. I think the in
surance legislation was unwise. I have
no doubt the members of the general
assembly were honestly endeavoring
to give us better insurance protection
at a lower rate. Th fact is, we have
poorer protectlon, at a higierc rate.
If I had been governor 1 should have
lendeavored before the passage of the
bill to show the legislature that. some
of its provisions were uinwise. 1 (10 not
think, however, that. the veto power
was given the governor to be used in
an arbitrary manner, and if the gen
eral assembly, after a full and fair
consideration, should pass a bill, I do
not think the governor should veto it
unless he is convinced that it will work
irreparable injury or that it violates
I am asked again If I favor the
tax cotnlission. If the governor had
examined the records of the legisla
ture during the past II years, he
would have found that, when a nem

assembly, I supported the proposition
