Walhalla, August 29 ---Today, in
one of the quaintest and notst an
cient old Court Houses in the State,
the three remaining miemlers of the
faculty of the Sate political summer
school conducted the last sossion but
one of the school. Their voices,
raised against "commercial ism,"
leaped across the cemetery nearby,
struck the stone wall of the Blue
Ridge about a mile away, to be sent
rolling from mountain to seashore
through the medium of the press.
Honest, sturdy mountaineers of in
telligence were the pupils today.
The excessive rains had wade the
roads leading to Walhalla diflicult
of passage, but the farmers were
here in force. The speakers had
driven over from Seneca and their
clothing indicated mud-slinging, de
spite the understanding that there
was to be none. The crowd was a
good one, but not so large as at other
places. It was orderly and atten
tive throughout. The people were
expecting McLaurin to be here, as it.
had not been stated that he would
not be here. The meeting was pre
sided over by Senator Alexander,
who called on the Rev. lr. Me
Guire, who offered an earne-o:t pratyer.
senator Alexander introduced

opened with a fooling reference to
the past, telling ,,f the plessnre he
had exp erie:nteed1 often in coming be
fore them. lie then drifted into the
discussion of the issues in a strong
and fori+ihle manner, presenting the
views expressed elsewhere. Not so
long ag,, the State had only the ag
ricultural industry to rely upon. It
was important, therefore, to develop
industrial enterprises. He depicted
the conditions thirty years ago and
said that now South Carolina is the
foremost industrial State. The so
called new i)ropositions are as old as
monarchy itself; as the rule of the
privileged classes. Our policies are
only aq old as this splendid republic.
W hence did these propositions come'?
He impugned no man, but the truth
must always be. told. Many were
honestly entertaining these new ideas.
Honest error could only be combated
by exposing. And that was what
he was here to do. e went over
the manuer- in which he hadit arri ved
at his own. conelaions, as heareutufore
presentedi, anti dlelaredi t hat the ne.'w
idleas were t hose of Alexander H1am
alton and 1-le party of centralization.
Hie proceedled to go over his umsual
argument as to expansion, explaiua
ing the expansion of the demoeratic
party under Jefferson's dloctrines,
and showing that the other party
had done nothing to add to legiti
mate victory. Then he pointed out
at length the vast differences be
tween democratic expansion anid re
publican imperialism, reciting the
conditions existing in Cuba anid the
Philippines. The expansion the re
publican party is talking about is the
imperiaism that exists in the mnon
archies of the present day. He asked
his hearers to burn this through into
their heads. He made his usual il
-lustration of the Saviour leading an
invading army, addressing himself
to the minister present. In case of
trouble with Russia about an open
market the Filipinos would use our
tariff against us. Who ever heard
of establishing trade by making
shronds? Shroudis are all you can
sell them now. Peace ms t,be only
true basis of trade. We have spent
$300,000 already to establish trade
with the Philippines and it will cost
us from $40,000 to $60,000) a year,
and our trade with them so far is
only $70,000 a year. lie devoted

his usual arguments on the ship
subsidy problem and concluded his
speech with the stories used( yester
day so successfully in Greenville.
opened with a little local matter he
delivery system. He did not claim
to originate the plan, but lie had
pushed the idea in congress, and now
the government was paying three
million dollars. Ho had bon asked
to withdraw his proposition to pro
vido an appropriation. Ito told how
he had gotten it. The postmaster
general had wanted his (lat iner's)
son to lay out and take charge of the
work in this district. He had tried
to get old soldiers provided with
this job, but they were ruled out on
account of ago. John L. McLaurin
and his backers, who were running
over the Stato selling out for post
offices, are delaying the people in
getting their rights and the rural
delivery in the di4trict. It would
come in October. This man Mc.
Laurin was standing in the way, try.
Ing to get. his hoolors to whoop and
howl for him and help him to got
back to the senate, men to help him
who are paid by Mark Hanna's
money. This man tells you to go
back on all your country ever stood
for. This man stood by Wi. Mc
Kinley and he stands by the repub.
lican party, and that party turns
over to him the patronage here. He
then repeated the history of the
jumping-jack political rocord of Mc
Laurin. This is not the first time
he has proved traitor. lie put bis
little battery on Paris Moinutain and
ho+d been firing through that little
roliiblicen sheet, the Greenville
Now,-. Wheni they had started in
after him he ran away to the exposi
tion, in-itead of staying here and
facing the music. He was like the
follow who said: "John, this hotel is
leaking, let's find another." (Laugh
ter.) "Ho's hunting another now.
There are three classes of people
supporting McLaurin, the pap suck
era pure and simple, a few cotton
mill presidents who voted for Wm.
McKinley, and the disappointed fel
lows who were in the reform mnve
ment and are soreheads." Congress
man Latimer then went over his
speech elsewhere as to the New Eng
land plan of robbery and said it was
strange that any man could t hink he
could lead the people of the South
into it. McLaurin is not big enough
to organize a republican party in a
single township. He then proceeded
to discuss "this foreign policy busi
ness." He repeated what he said at
Spartanburg and Greenville, about
the cotton mills. He was opposed
to special privileges to any class of

China is under treaty and wve can
get no advantage thlere because of

way to got the trade of China is to

McLjaurin here to tell you of any

He devoted the last t wenty mlinl
utes of his speech to thle views on
the ship subsidy. lie held that the
subsidy would build up the Eastern
ports to the destruction of the South
ern ports. A grand monopoly would
be formed. T1his wats a Republican
measure of the rottenness kind and

said the peoplo here had always ben
solidly democratic, but there wore
now issuos now to worry them until
explained. He told of the natural
expansion of a child and contrasted
it with that of a man suffering from
dropsy. The unnatural oxpatisiou
would sap valuable life--so it was
With1 the "expansion" of which you
now hear. The Philippines were so
hot that yqu have to lap your hns
on cracked ice to keep them from
laying boiled eggs. Mr. iomphill
then ontored into a plain, clear and
forcible argument against the gov
ertnment's policy of imperialism. if
this is followed we must shoot Fili
pinos eternally. Lot the Filipinos
live n their homes with their fami.
lies and with their liberty. If we
are to koop these islands we h'tvo to
shoot the people or keep a great
army there indolinitely. You must
pay for this army in an over flowing
stroam of ,money. H1e told, too, of
the pensions, explaining the system.
He dealt for a while with the trade
side of the Philippine question. His
arguments were the same as at
Union, several good stories being
given by way of illustration. No
greater humbug than this imperial.
ism idea was over concocted in the
world, he said. \Vl-u a man begins
to shaki+ off principles and take on
others it is pretty safe to say that lie
has no principle himself. It is doubt
ful if any nation over made a dollar
by colonization. He quot6d striking
figures as to England and said that.
moreover the old countries are so
densely populated that their people
have to seek homes in other countries,
while we have only twenty-five peo.
ple to the square mile. We need
population. The proposition of the
republicans was a very different
thing-we will have additional race
troubles. Great Britain had had the
Philippines once, but shj sold out
for less than we paid and sailed away.
He then devoted his attention to the
ship subsidy, using the arguments
previously published. In the course
of his remarks he said faith was the
faculty which made a man believe
what lie knew was not so. He con
cluded with some jokes, and anec
The audience today was one of the
most patient and undemonstrative
of this preliminary campaign. Those
present listened most attentively to
the arguments, i'ut it was only once
or twice that there was any attempt
at real campaign applause. Each
speaker was well received, particu
larly when he told a pointed joke.
Mr. Hemnphill's "Brother Ban" story
made a great hit. The attack of
Mr. Latimner on McLaurin took well.
Tlhe meeting ;was a calm discussion
of the issues and the people absorbed
the thoughts p)resented to them.

ing today was the discussion bet woon
Senator MeLaurin and former Con
grossman Johnstone. It was reaily
a superb debate.
Senator McLaurin caml3 into the
hall with the moi~st boartty of wol
conmes. His friends cheered himi
time and1 again andl he must have
felt well over it, because 1he mJadel a
capital speech anid he who believes
McfLaurin cannot, tako care of him

a foe of remarkable ability in Col.
Mr. McLaurin opened up the sec
ond section of todafy's meeting ini a
speech of oiver anl hlour, and dluring
that timo 1)0 was heartily applauded
at frequent intervals. He (lid unot
mention Tillman throughout his
speech in any way arnd he miade rno
reference to Latimer, who had
punched him good anid hard dlurmng
hi - speech, but it wvas more espe
cially in his second or- reply speech
that he made his best effort. It was
then that he took off hiis collar ad
got dIown to bulsiness5, and it wvas
then that he threw real feeling into
his speech, replying to biting sar
casm of Col. ,Johnstouno relative to
his holding the purseo drings to pub
lic patronage and other things that
he urgedl showed the dIrift toward

Senator M,cLaurin had( the voice
of John Ashley anid all know what
that means; he made so miany inter
rupt ions thiat someone wanted him
purified. But there were others for
McLaurin if cheers count for votes
and tihe whooping was steady and
long. Some say it camio largely from
citizens of other count iis who came
with McLiaurin, whlo held office or
wanted them. There were outsiders
