burg August 25. The first primiary will

Considerable interest attached to
the meeting here today. Utterances
of John T. Duncan are bitterly resented
in Clarendon. Several partisan vot
ers directly in front of the stage or
dered -1r. Duncan to sit down and to
hush as he was introduced. Mr. Dun
can followed Cole L. Blease, who got
a noisy reception. Between 200 and
:100 persons left with the formei- gov
ernor, who was the second of .the gu
berhatorial candidates heard.,
OppVosing Ring Rule
Candidates for congyress in the
First district also spoke here today.
W. Turner Logan, incumbent, is be-1
Ing opposed by L. S. Hutto of Dor
chester and J. B. Morrison of Me
Clellanville, and the contest is spirit-1
ed. Lines of cleavage are apparently
being closely drawn between the ru-'
ral vote and close adherents of the
Grace-Log ;in faction in- Charleston.
Mr. Ilutto today b'anded 'Mr. Logan
as a dis!cyalist. Hile pointed -to the
Charleston American as "a seditious
sheet". Mr. Logan was a director and
stockholder. Excited partisans whoolp
ed themselves -hoarse in urging that
ho continue to "pour it in."
Mr. 'Logan said the enrollment in
Charleston was about 12,000 and .that!
the avalanche. of votes would bury
Mr. Hutto so deep that -grass would
be growing in the Dorchester county
candidate's woodyard before Mr. Hut
to could dig out.
Mr. Morrison said that he and Mr.
Hutto were driving the incumbent so
hard that John 7. Grace had beenl
making the district itinerary with the
candidates and speaking for Mr. Logan
after the candidates had been heard.
Teplying to Mir.. Logan's statement
that his two opponents were not
qualified for the office the 'McClellan
ville candidate said Mr. Logan was
not fit for the place.
Warning by Morrison
'-o warned people to be on their
guard. There were large .bond issues
being floate in 'Charleston. "Some
body's handling the .money and there
may be an attempt made to buy the
election." (Mr. Morrison said he
thought the enfranchisement of the
women would prove a godsend to the
state in that their votes 'would guar'
antee honest elections.
J. J. Cantey of Summterton, Claren
don county, spoke with the guberna
torial candidates today. - Mr. Cantey
said the visiting candidates were ,en
titled to everything the Ciarendon
(people could give except the office of.
gsyvernor. Clarendon had been the'
mother of a number of guyernors. H-e

determination to -be gevarn.r. The

without these,-and that politiciali *ho
so tried to betray the people was a
dangerous man and "ought to be elec
trocuted--without de process of law."
Taxes Xot Net Paid
There -was much shout!ng when Cole
L. Blease was introduced. The former
governor said there. were more tax
executions pending in the state today
than - ever , before. This Nias not
brought about by Blease but by thobe
who had been in control of the goy
ermient the last seven and one-half
years. He had 'warned the people

the state would become bankrult.
Not only were the people nearly
bankrupt, but there was more lawless
ness than ever before; more murder,
more theft and general violation of
the prohibition law. An appropriation
had 'been made to enforce the prohibi
tion law. This was expended "on ir
responsible fellows called constables."
but who were active in politics. When
raids were made, if the liquor seized
was of good quality, nothing was said
about it and the liquor disappeared.
Ie could prove, be said, that some of
the constables seized liquor and took
it to Columbia and sold it.
John T, Duncan followed and met
some pointed opposition froin -a few
voters -when he began to speak. This
soon subsided, however, and the usual
shafts were thrown with accurate aim,
which brought much applause. Mr.
Duncan said he did not believe self
respecting Bleaseltes would march
"oheek and jowl with negroes" ..and
hell) put down white supremacy in
South 'Carolina and 'land themselves
in the 'Republican party. The speaker
each day challenges the former gov
ernor to deny that he had received Re
publican money to split the Democratic
party in South Carolina. If he twill
deny this, Mr. Duncan says he will
face Mr. Blease with former Bleaseites
George K. Laney gave much of his
time today to the items in the general
alppropriation bill. The charge bad
been made that the amount had been
doubled since 1914. Back then only
$75,000 was appropriated for the .conr
mon schools, while last year the fig
ure was a million and a quarter. Tie
State hospital had to be largely re
built, ;because tubercular patients and
all had to be put in the same quarteis,
No man would say economize by tak
ing either of these items out. Fur
ther, the amount for Confederate vet
erans had -been made $600,000 last year,
while back in 1914 only a small fig
ure was provided. That was another
item iwhich no one would cut. Mr.
'Laney also reminded that the general
appropriation -bill this year -had -been
reduced half a million, while taxes
from new sources .would further cut
the appropriation bill to around $2,
000,000, making the state levy about
seven m~ls, while in 1914 it was
Thomas G. McLeod also gave much
consideration to the tax question,
