OPEMIG IEETING OF
the attention of - legislator is to get
taxes as low as possible. Taxes are
high now, but he didn't see any pros
pect in the near future of reducing
them. The question is sometimes asked,
why are taxes so much higher now than
formerly? The simple reason is that
there are now more places where money
is demanded. A few years ago we
didn't have any pension roll. Now that
has been increased until it amounts to
As to State institutions, he had failed
to agree with a majority of the Legis
lature. When Winthrop College was
established it was understood that that
appropriation should not be increased.
But later they were asked for more,
there was a gradual going up every
year, showing that the more you help a
man the more you will have to help
him. He believed Winthrop was doing
more good for our people than any oth
er State institution, but there should
be a limit to everything. As with
Winthrop. so with the others. Appro
priations for State institutions are as
high as they ought to be, and on every
increase he was with the minority. He
favored the institutions, but he wanted
them run on an economical basis. There
is extravagance at Clemson, and the
-Legislature can't help it. They have
tried and failed.
Taxation can't be reduced without
reduction of appropriations.
His position on the child labor bill
was on record in Columbia. He stood
against it. On the ground of sympathy
he would'have been for it, but some of
our people are so situated that their
childen must work before they are 12
or 14 years old. Besides, he believed
in leaving it to the fathers and mothers
of this country what they should do
with their children. A law making ed
ucation of mill children . compulsory
wouldn't stand the test of the courts.
He was in the midst of the discussion
of this question when time was called.
MR. WM. H. SANDERS,
although defeated two years ago, want
ed to thank the people for their sup
port at that time.
The child-labor question was a deli
cate question, but he didn't think any
man should say what should be done
with another man's child.
.As to good roads, he did not want
additional taxation to make them, un
less they couldn't be got in any other
He favored education, and believed
that only by education can material
prosperity be obtained.
His speech was short, but it was to
the point and gave his position.
MR. JNO. M. TAYLOR,
as a great many knew, was frpm the
cotton mill, and it was the proudest
moment of his life tp stand in defense
of that people, who are denominated
the wealth producers of South Carolina.
The ignorance of his opponents on
such questions as affected these people
almost made him laugh in his -sleeves.
There is a dissatisfaction among these
people because they are not enjoying
their share of the profits produced by
their labors. The child labor bill simply
means sending the mill children to
school. Pass it, and it gives these the
opportunity to become foremen and
overseers, manufacturing all classes of
goods. These people ask that their
children be kept out of the mill until
they are twelve years of age.
Mr. Banks here suggested that in
stead, a law be passed allowing any
child to refuse to work who did not
sir. Taylor explained that without
the law the children would either have
to work when called upon by the mill
authorities or the parents lose their
Now and all the time he was in favor
of education, and especially a common
school education for the mill people.
Favored paying more attention to
common schools instead of State insti
:tutions, and favored building good
roads. In order to do this, cut off part1
of' the appropriations from State col
leges.*and put it on education and good
roads and increase the commutation
tax to $2.00.
The maii plank in his platform was
the child labor bill.t
Following the candidates for the1
Legislature came those seeking the of
SUPERINTENDENT OF EDUCATION.
Mr. Eugene S. Werts told a joke
which enlivened the tired crowd. On!
this stand two years ago he made his!
maiden speech. He went through the1
campaign, was elected, and had tried i
to serve the people faithfully and wvell. g
He had made mistakes, he knew, but S
he tried to do his duty, and believed a
now that after his experience of one i
term he could serve them better than
ever before. He was proud of the sup- b
port he received two years ago.v
, Mr. J. S. Wheeler said two years ago
he also made his maiden speech here. r
Mr. Werts won and he didn't. But like p
him, he also went to work to build up
the county schools. Mr. Werts repre- l\
sented all the county schools, and he p
only represented one, but he had done
his duty as he saw it.
He was a full graduate of Newberry F.
College, and had taught in the common tl
schools 17 years, and felt fully compe- h
tent to discharge the duties of the of- a
fice he saught. The county schools are t<
the ones that need our attention at
present, and they should be so arranged
as to prepare pupils for the Sophomore t
class in college. The county superin- I
tendent should visit the schools, and lie
would do so. if elected. Every county
superintendent should also attend the
State summer school that is held each
year, where new methods and new
ideas may be learned.
Mr. Thos. E. Wicker made his maiden
speech here today, and hoped that two
years hence when he asked for re-elec
tion he would see the same happy faces.
Not more than two miles from here
nearly 28 years ago he awoke for the
first time and cried for breakfast. He
had cried for a great many things since
that time, among them, a collegiate ed
ucation, and by perseverance and un
tiring zeal and a desperate effort he
obtained it. He was now crying for
the office of County Superintendent of
Education. He was willing to leave his
reputation and character in the hands
of those who know him. He had taught
school, and knew how schools should be
A county that has good roads and
good schools is a county that is pro
gressive and advancing in refinement,
culture, and civilization. For good
schools there must be a good superin
tendent and there must be good teach
ers. One can not do much without the
other. He stated his position as to the I
curriculum. To read well is the first I

FOR COUNTY TREASURER.
Rev. W. W. McMorris was a p:each
er of the gospel, but he was a citizen,
paid his taxes like other men do, and
asked for votes like other men do. He
gave an account of his life and his
struggles, and asked to be put on the
same footing with his opponent, al
though he has held the office only one
term. The position he sought was a
responsible one, and he would discharge t
its duties the best he could.
Mr. Jno. L. Epps was present, but
declined making a speech.
HON. GEO. E. PRINCE, 1
of Anderson, candidate for Congress, t
was present and spoke. He was not I
running for Congress because he want-c
ed a living. He had that now. He was
running because he believed he had the
training necessary to represent his peo- I
pIe there. He did not pretend he wast
going to turn this world upside down. i
The first few years he would not "cut I
a shine.'' He was going to Congress, C
but he was here today to say that he a
wanted to stay there -until he could r
represent his people creditably and I
make a name for himself. He was a j
member of the House the past four I
years and a member of the Constitu- i
tional Convention, and the people knew I
something of his record. He was hear
tily in favor of good common school ed- ~
ucation, and his record, which he gave,
proved it. But education alone will not I

As to the Philippine question, the t

Hon. Jno. F. Banks emphatically op

Lnd on general principles. Opposed ,
omp6sory education, on account of -

Hon. Fred H. Dominick wanted to
tand or fall by his past record. Ad
rocated, as two years ago, biennial ses- ]

ion of labor contracts, and putting ten t

rangs for building good roads. Again r
eferred to the senatorial burying s
;round, where so many good bills lie p
lead. Discussed taxation and special
,erms of court, stating same position t
Ls yesterday. Unequivocally opposed
hild labor bill. The children were not 1
-orced to go into the mill.
Mr. F. W. Higgins opposed the child o
abor bill, but believed in leaving it to

acking appropriations to state colleges, a
omparing these with amount required p
)y Newberry college. Favored putting ]

Hon. Arthur Kibler discussed taxes,

Mr. E. H. Aull discussed taxation, C'

Ltions, but didn't want to pull them ,J
