'Columboia, June 19.--A bunper
crop of candidates for state olicers
makes a rich 'harvet this year for the
tre*asury of the State Democratic Exe
outive committee. As one hat after
another .was flung into the ring-and
these fell thick and fast up to 12
o'clock today-accompanying the som
breros of male candidates Were checks
of $100 and $200 dimensions. "A pret
ty good day's :business," remarked Ed
gar A. Brown, the state chairman who,
halling froin Barnwell, w'here he is a
candidate for the legislature, Is inci
dentally boss of the works.
Complaint was heard not many
days ago .that this year there appeared
to -be little intel-est in state politics
outside of the gubernatorial race. But
the last days' gleaning-and it c as on
ly half a day at that-brought the bi
ennial crop of candidates up to seome
thing a little more than par. Pledges
were filed thick and fast this moi-ning,
so thick and so fast that the entire
landscape was completely changed.
Those political wiseacres who have
heretofore predicted their prognosti
cations upon the line-up as previously
existing now face the necessity of re
vising the same because of new en
Eleventh hour candidates have ra-th
er convpiicated the situation for those
who, until this morning, had no oppo
sition. Political aspirants came today
from various parts of the state, the
capital swarming with them like bees
at hiving time. One shudders to thinli
what might have happened -to the as
pirations and ambitions of some t)
,these had their trains been late or had
they suffered more than one or Fiw(
blowouts on the way. In point of fact
Sain T. Carter, for past years stat<
treasurer, is the one state oflicer wh<
did not draw an opponecnt, a worthi
tribute to a worthy and a faithful of
licial of the state government.
There was also one withdrawal

for state stuverintendent of education

candidates, including bwo women, th4
first of the female sex to offer forath
state ollices, They are Mrs. djesult
