Vr.halla, August 29 -Today, in
one of the quaintest and Iost an
cient old Court Houses in the State,
the three remaining members of the
faculty of the Sate political summer
school conducted the last session but
one of the school. Their voices,
raised against "coin nercialism,"
lhaped 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 made 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
aided over by Senator Alexander,
who called on the Rev. Mr. Mc
(uire, who offered an earnest prayor.
Senator Alexander introduced
COL. (IEoiE JOlINS'oNEF.
as the ir-4t spl ak r. Col. J.nlstone
opened with a fooling r,+ference to
the past, telling e.f the pleasnre he
had exaeriened often in coming be
fore themw. lie then drifted into the
discussion of the issues in a strong
and forvible manner, presenting the
views expressed elsewhere. Not so
long ag) t he 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 oropositions are as old as
monarchy itself; as the rule of the
privileged clises. Our policies are
only as old as this splendid republic.
Whence did these propositions come?
He impugned no man, but the truth
[miust 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 doI. He went over
the mnanner in which he had ariied
at his own concelusionus, as biereutofore
presenitedl, andu declared t hat the new
ideas were t hose of Alexander 1Ham
alton and tihe party of cent ralization.
Hie proceeded to go over his usual
argument as to expansion, exp)lain-.
ing the expansion of thme demnocratic
party under Jefferson's doctrines,
and showing that the other party
had dune nothing to add to legiti
mate victory. Then he pointed out
at length the vast differences be.
tween democratic expansion andi re
publican imperialism, reciting the
conditions existing in Cuba and the
Philippines. The expansion the re
publican party is talking about is the
imperialism that exists in the mnon
archies of t.he present (day. He asked
his hearers to burn this through into
their heads. He made his usual il
lustration of the Saiviour 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
shrouds? Shrouds are all you can
sell them now. Peace is the only
true basis of trade. We have spent
$300,000) already to establish trade
withI the Phlilippines and it will cost
us from $40,000 to $60,0)00 a year,
and our trade with them so far is
only $70,000 a year. He devoted
the last ten minutes of his time to
his usual argumentss on the ship
subsidy problem and concluded his
speech with the stories usRed yester
day s-u successfully in Greenville.
opened with a little local matter he
w ...nvunn utnuCI, U110 rurctc ziiai
delivory system. lio did not claim
to originate the plan, but he had
pushed the idea in congress, and now
the government was paying three
million dollars. He had boon asked
to withdraw his proposition to pro
vide an appropriation. Io told how
ho had gotten it. The postmaster
general had wanted his (Latimner's)
son to lay out and take charge of the
work in this district. le had tried
to got 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 State selling out for post
oflices, are delaying the people in
getting their rights and the rural
delivery in the district. It would,
come in October. This man Mo.
Laurin was standing in the way, try
ing to get his heolers to whoop and
howl for him and help him to got
back to the senate, men to help him
who are paid by Mark 1-anna's
money. This man tells you to go
back on all your country ever stood
for. This man stood by Wn. Mc
Kinley and he stands by the repub
lican party, and that party turns
over to him the patronage here. le
then repeated the history of the
jumping-jack political record of Mc
Laurin. This is not the first time
he has proved traitor. He put his
little battery on Paris Mountain and
h,d been firing through that little
r-'pu)licnn sheet, the Greenville
Ne-ve. Whien they had started in
after him be ran away to the exposi
tion, instead of staying here and
facing the music. He was like the
fellow who said: "John, this hotel is
leaking, let's find another." (Laugh
ter.) "He's hunting another now.
There are three classes of people
supporting MoLaurin, the pap suck
ers pure and simple, a few cotton
mill presidents who voted for Win.
McKinley, and the disappointed fel
lows who were in the reform muve
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 relublican 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. Ho was opposed
to special privileges to any class of
le dealt at some length with the
favored nation clause in connection
with the Ph iipnpinies arnd referred t.o
onr enormous lepouse mn holding thme
Philppina's bmy mid itary power. Mc
Launrin i-aid, wvith Larry Gantt re
peitting it, that if you add one inch
to the shirt tails of the Chines~e they
will nse all the cotton goods we can
make. The only way to get into
China is under treaty and we can
get no adlvantage there because of
the favored nation clause. The only
way to get the trade of China is to
make the kind of goods they want
and send agents there. Why is not
McLauirin here to tell you of any
other way ' HIe had found out that
they could (10 without the alliance
dlemandls and yet prosper, because
this country is too big. There was
nothing in the New Testament teach
ing that Americans should go to the
Philippines and Christianize the
people. If it's right, why not he
called to Christianizo China? Ex
pansion should be peaceable and
He dlevoted the last twenty min
utes of his speech to the views on
the sbip subsidy. Hm 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 was a Republican
measure of the rottenness kind and
John L. McLaurin hiad voted for it.
The author of the commercial do
mocracy knows there's nothing in it.
He is posted well, but he lacks com
mon sense. He can write good ar;
ticles to the executive committee and
be don't mind telling falsehoods
either. (Applause.) He had the
the opportunity to face us now and
he has not done it.
Mr. Latimer closed with annlan8e.
ION. J. J. IIEMI'IIIJL
said the people here had always been
solidly democratic, but there were
now issues 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
iiropsy. TI'he unnatural expansion
would sap valuable life--so it was
with the "expansion" of which you
now hear. The Philippines woro so
hot that you have to lap your lions
on cracked ice to keep them from
laying boiled eggs. Mr. Hemphill
then entored into a plain, clear .nd
forcible argument against the gov
orunment's policy of imperialism. if
this is followed we must shoot Fili
pinos eternally. Let the Filipinos
live im their homes with their fami.
lies and with their liberty. If we
are to keep these islands we have to
shoot the people or koep a great
army there indefinitely. You must
pay for this army in an over flowing
stroam of ;money. He told, too, of
the pensions, explaining the system.
le 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 ever concocted in the
world, he said. \Vhen a iman begins
to shako off principles and take on
Others it is pretty safe to say that he
has no principle himself. It is doubt
ful if any nation ever made a dollar
by colonization. He quoted striking
figures us 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 she 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 he knew was riot 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, lbut 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.
MCr. Hemphmill's "Brot,ber Ben" story
made a great hit. T1he attack of
Mr. Laitimner on McLaurin took wvell.
The1~ meeting ;was a calm discussion
of the issues and the people absorbed
the thoughts presented to them.
The Blue Ridge road officials held
the train a short time for the faculty

Mr. Inmnphill made a strong
