1Nothing of It
In his campaign speech in Newberry
Mr. W. F. Stevenson, candidate for
Attorney General, made the assertion
that Mr. Bateman, chief constable at
Columbia, had organized his district in
the interest of Mr. Gunter, Mr. Steven
son's opponent, and called upon Gover
nor McSweeney to say whether or not
he was hands off in this campaign. In
reply, the following from the Governor
appeared in yesterday's News and Cou
Governor McSweeney says that if Mr.
Bateman or any other State constable is
taki=g any active partin this campaign
it i lutely against his wishes and
orders. The constables, of course, have
a right to vote, but he wants it distinct
ly-understood that they cannot take an
active part in politics, because to do so
- means a lect of the work which they
are paidto o. If any State constable is
officious or active in politics and is there
by, as must necessarily foll'w, neglect
ig.his work and the fact is reported to
Governor McSweeney by any responsi
ble citizen it will be but a short matter
to end the incident by promptly remov
-g the constable.
ernor McSweeney declared on the
- stump in his last campaign that he had
-sedpositive instructions against any
coastables taking part in the campaign,
andthat he had issued an order that
'hey were not to attend the meetings,
becanse they could not do their work
there, and the same rule holds good now.
Governor McSweeney says it is impos
sile for him to -keep up with each and
every officer of the State, but that he
consider it a favor if constables
-who are neglecting their work to dabble
in politics are formally reported to him.
- He knows nothing further about this
particular case than is reported in the
proceedings of the meeting.
Governor McSweeney says that he
'has something more to do than to m
- into the personal views of the
constables, but he has a perfect

CANDIDATES FOR STATE OFFICES
HERE ON TUESDAY.
An Orderly Meeting Unsatisfaetory
to Candidates-Crowd Numbered
About 600 -Close Attention and
and Gunter Wax a Little
Warm. to the Advan
tage of Gunter.
A representative audience of about
600 persons, including a number of la
dies, heard the candidates for State
nffices on Tuesday. To the candidates
it was an unsatisfactory meeting. The
people had not decided on any man, and
went out to hear the speeches, and to
decide on the men best fitted for the
various positions, and not to whoop up
any favorite. All the speakers were
heard with close attention.
Among the candidates for governor,
Heyward was probably the favorite of
the crowd, with Tillman a close second.
Both received applause, as, in fact,
lid all the other candidates for this po
The meeting was orderly throughout,
and there was very little display of fire
works by the speakers. Several de
bates among those seeking the office of
railroad commissioner waxed a little
warm, Mr. Prince making the charge
against Mr. Wilborn that he knew of
riolations of the law and had not col
[ected a penny of penalty, and Mr. Wil
born replying with spirit.
Messrs. Stevenson and Gunter also
;ot a little heated in their arguments.
Mr. Stevenson made the charge that
the chief constable of the constabulary
rorce in Columbia had organized his
listrict for Mr. Gunter, and wanted to
nform the governor that it was time
ze was looking after his chief consta
>le, Mr. Bateman. Mr. Gunter re
zewed his charges as to the Newberry
Bar incident and that Mr. Stevenson
zad worked in the interest of the rail
oads while Speaker of the House, and
lenying the fact that the governor or
my one else had instructed the constab
ilary to work for his election. He had
he best of argument, and the crowd
as with him.
At night the candidates held forth in
ront of Senn's store, in West End, in
~rder to give the operatives of the mill
n opportunity to hear the speeches.
he crowd present numbered a couple
undred voters, and it was a hard mat
er to tell whom they favored. All the
~andidates for governor r4ceived ap
)lause, Tillman, Heyward and Talbert
ading. The speeches varied little
~rom those in the morning meeting,
Lnd some of the candidates were absent.
he crowd, however, was a little more
eonstrative, and a fight between a
eyward man and a Tillmanite got
el under way. The belligerents,
owever, were not residents of West
Following is the story of the morning
eeting in detail:
The exercises were opened with prayer
y the Rev. Geo. A. Wright. The
rowd, being a little slow in gathering,
Ir. John D. Frost was asked to use his
tentorian voice, which he did with ef
eet, and the speaking began about
Chairman Goggans, after bespeaking
or all the candidates the earnest atten
ion of the audience, introduced the
Mr. A. W. Jones came first. The
)ffice he sought was the most important
r the State government, and he de
;cribed its duties. Before he was con
ected with the office in the insurance
lepartment the insurance laws had not
een enforced but now they were.
rhe crying evil of the day is the ine
~uality in the vatuation of property for
~axation. He had traveled over the
state and knew whereof he spoke, -giv
Lng instances. He had just gone into
the record of his endeavors to secure
this equality in.. valuation when time
Mr. W. H. Sharp was a new hand at
State campaigning, but if all the prom
ises of his opponents would come to
pass South Carolina would be a perfect
Elysium. But when they are all re
tired you will pay your taxes as you
used to do', for taxation is the price of
government. They talked of their inti
macy with the duties of the office, but
they were not so intricate that any
body couldn't perform them. And by
the God of nations he would enforce
the law as it was given him. He had
worked out his own education and went
on to tell of his struggles with poverty.
The only objection to his opponents
was he wanted the job himself.
Mr. G. L. Walker described the du
ties o1 the office and gave his experi
ence in the tax department. Had been
treasurer of his county for eight years
and three years chief clerk in the office
he sought. He hoped to see the time
come when property would be assessed
upon a more equitable plan, and should
he be elected would strive in this direc
Mr. N. W. Brooker gave his record.
Was thoroughly equipped for the duties
of the office, with a knowledge of the
tax laws, and determined to improve
them. He had asked Mr. Jones a ques
tion at Orange.burg which he had not
answered. He found upon leaving Co
lumbia that insurance license fees had
not been paid into the treasury, but
held over during the summer and not
paid until fall. He meant no charge
against insurance companies, but want
,i to call attention to it and to demanc
on behalf of the people that this money
Mr. Jones said Mr. Derham was
bonded officer of this State and had
charge of these funds, and he had noth
ing to (10 with them.
Mr. Brooker meant no charge: against
Matters had warmed up a little, and
both gentlemen were called to order by
Chairman Goggans and took their seats.
The candidate for
who has no opposition, came next. Mr.
Jennings did not want to make a speech,
but only to thank the people of New
berry for their support two years ago.
and especially the ladies, to whom more
than any others he owed his election.
Chairman Goggans then introduced
those aspiring to the office of
ADJUTANT AND INSPECTOR GENERAL.
Mr. J. M. Patrick found himself un
equally pitted against his competitors.
Both were colonels and veterans. He
could not discuss issues, for there were
none. He favored education, good
roads, low taxes. His competitors
wanted the office and that was what he
wanted. He had been connected for
eighteen years with the Patrick Mili
tary Institute, and was in charge of the
Col. J. C. Boyd did not have the
pleasure of being born in Newberry,
but thought the next best thing to do t
was to marry here, and he did. so, and
was satisfied. He did not have diplo- I
mas from military colleges, as his com
petitors had, but he had a diploma
gained in the service of the State from
'61 to '65. But that was not all. In
the dark days of '75 he had given his
best service to the State, and had con
tinually done so since that time, and
today commanded its First regiment.
He wanted to wind up his career in the
service of his State in the office to
which he aspired. He did not enlist in
the Spanish war because he didn't have
the political pull to get a commission.
He closed with applause from the crowd.
Col. J. D. Frost said there were ties
in Newberry County that he could
never forget. His mother was born
here and it was with a peculiar pleas
ure that he was here asking the suf- f
frage of Newberry people. He entered r
the Citadel at 16, and graduated senior d
captain in 1891. At the outbreak of I
the Spanish war he had no political pull a
but the governor sent for him and gave e
him the first position as adjutant of the i
First regiment. General Floyd had ap
pointed him assistant adjutant and in- E
spector general in 1898 over 47 competi- I
tors, and he challenged comparison of 1,
the militia of today with militia of the 3
past. He stood on his e record alone. 1:
He received much applause. 1
A letter was read from Mr. Geo. D. e
Rouse excusing himself on account of t
a physical disability.s
Mr. P. E. Ayer was not present. -t
The ten candidates fora
were next introduced.
Mr. A. C. Jepson had had forty years
experience as a practical engineer,
where his salary was aL large as it
would be in office, but he was getting
too old to run an engine. He felt his
experience had made him an expert, a
and thought it best for the people that
they have a practical railroad man on
the Board. i
Mr. H. J. Kinard claimed connection
mon e side of his family or the other
with nearly every family in Newberry
County. He asked for support upon ~
his 28 years experience as a practical
business man, in shipping and receiv
ing freight, and the record of his six
years in the legislature representingt
Greenwood County. Would protect the
people against the oppression of the
great corporations if given the oppor
Mr. John G. Mobley thought railroad
government the most important ques
tion of the times. Railroads are potent
factors in the advancement of a com
munity, but they can also mar its pros
perity. There should be strict super
vision to see they have all coming to a
them, but no more. For this purpose
Board of Commissioners was estab
lished. There are many remedies now N
:dmanded, proper accommodations,
equality of freight rates, runnmng on
shedule time, which he would strive to,
Mr. J. C. Wilborn did not think him
self a stranger here. He came t.o give
an account of his stewardship and to ask
for re-election. He knew the railroad
laws had been violated.
Mr. Prince wanted to know if he had
ever collected a penny for these viola
Mr. Wilborn did not know of any
volations but was only asking the peo
pIe for information. He was ready to
quit the campaign any time to hear any
complaint of violations.
Mr. Prince here produced a letter
written him by T. F. Wilson at Lamar,
in which it was said about 30 letters of:
cooplaint had been written the Com
mission and claims sent in, but no re
ply received. Hie demanded that Wil
born read the letter, which lie did.
Mr. Wilborn said the trodble with
Mr. Prince was, he didn't know the
difference between Railroad Commis
sion and department of claims.
Icidlent closed with cheers for WVil
born, who then wvent on to show how since
he ad been in office he had saved the
people his weight in gold thirteen tinies.
Mr. J. G. Wolling saidl duties of the
ofe were important, because in their
peformance lies your' safety of life
and limb. He came with seven year's
exepiience as machinist andl engineer,
and called attention to regulating of
rats, building dlepots, etc. The p)eople
hae enough promises and were tired
of them. He would enforce the laws.
