The very atmosphere at Gaffney
seems to breed belligerency. There it
was that Tillman and McLaurin shook
fists in each other's faces, and resigned
the highest office within the gift of
their people. There it was that Editor
DeCamp called Jim Tillman a liar and
offered to prove it over Tillman's own
signature. There it. was within the
past few days that two candidates for
the United States Senate engaged in a
fisticuff. All these things happened at
political meetings in this place. We
await with interest further develop
ments from Gaffney.
Wm. J. Bryan is no longer consid
ered a possibility for the presidential
nomination, and it is hardly probable
that he will ever again be called from
his retirement to private life. It may
be well for the Democratic party that
it is so. While we have always been
a strong admirer of the man. There is
a strong prejudice against him held by
some in the ranks of the party, and if
again nominated he would go into the
race as one who had been twice de
feated for the position. There is at
present only one chance of success.
Harmony in the ranks must be secured;
a new and strong man, one having the
confidence of the entire people, must
be chosen as leader; and rallied around
one standard, the whole party must go
into the next race with a determination
to win. Then there will be a chance
In Rewrd to the T. it Kooks.
Hon. John J. McMahan, State Superin
tendent of Education, Columbia, S. C.
Dear Sir:-In view of the unjust at
tack made upon you with reference to
the adoption of text-books, it is but
justice that we, as members of the
State~ Board of Education responsible
for the changes in text-books, come
forward and make the following state
1. You are in no sense responsible
for the appointment of the men who
* ereised his prerogative under the con
stitution, and appointed the seven
members without regard to your pre
*2. You are not responsible for the
changes made in. the books. You
* stronly opposed the adoption of some.
A board of nine men selected the books
by a majority vote in each case; and no
one man could control the result, or can
have the blame or praise for what was
dond. All acquiesced loyally in the
result, and to you, as State Superin
tendent of Education, is due the credit
that the uniformity of text-books-so
much to be desired-has become a fact,
and is not a dead letter.
3. The country schools were in con
fusion from the great diversity of books
that had been permitted. The best
teaching could not be done when the
teacher had to use any and every book
that each pupil brought. Therefore
any serious effort to improve the coun
try schools necessarily involved great
changes in text-books.
After such changes have been made
and the people have acquiesced in the
enforcement of the law, it is unfortu
nate for a candidate for the high office
of State Superintendenrt of Education
to come before the people and try to
make them dissatisfied with a change
that has already been made, that can
not be undone, and that all intelligent
school men must know is for the .bet
terment of the work in the country
4. It is false to say there have been
"frequent changes." The changes were
ordered in 1900, to take place Novem
ber 15, 1901. The contract forbids any
more changes before July 1, 1906, and
there will probably be little reason for
many changes then.
5. Although you were opposed to
some of the adoptions, you accepted
the result in good faith; and, in the
enforcement of the use of the adopted
books, you have done your full duty.
Regardless of the opposition you would
incur, you applied yourself with determ
ination to having the law and the con
tract carried out. It is, therefore, due
chiefly to your efforts that South Caro
lina enjoys the lowest prices and ex

A Word for R F. Sznt for Congres-. I
Now that the interest in politics is at
its height and therefore sufficient to
cause the thoughtful voter to undertake
to measure the different candidates by
what he has seen and heard of them, it
is well enough to reflect further to the
extent of considering the motives that
have actuated each in the choice of his
platform and its advocacy before the
people. I refer in this connection more
especially to the candidates aspiring to
represent the Third South Carolina Dis
trict in Congress. It goes without say
ing that all of these gentlemen are
clean honorable men, but there are es
sential differences in them when it
comes to considering any one of them
as a probable representative of this pro
gressive district, and these differences
must be taken into account in the meas
urement we are called upon to make on
the 26th of August and to be concluded
on the day of the second election, for
such is to be expected.
A review of the platforms of the
different candidates for this office is
pertinent in this connection. Messrs.
Prince, Rucker, Graydon and McCalla
have served as representatives of their
counties in the State legislature and
while their records. are no doubt con
sistent, and their efforts have also been
directed towards the promotion of the
best interest of their people, their
service as State legislators as re
counted by them as refrains to
their political arguments on the stump
show that in the school of legislation
they are yet novices when it comes to
handling questions and problems of na
Mr. Aiken has never had legislative
experience of any kind, yet he shows a
familiarity with the leading questions
of the day quite equal to any of his op
ponents who boast of years of service
in the South Carolina House of Repre
sentatives. Mr. Stribbling has had lim
ited legislative experience.
Dr. Smith has had some experience
as a law maker, having served as a
member of the Constitutional Conven
tion in 1895 where his sound judgment
was exercis :d, along with his active
energetic support, in framing a funda
mental law for South Carolina that was
thought to meet the changed conditions
brought about by the change of times
and public necessities.
But it is by their stump speeches and
arguments on public questions pressing
for study and solution that we must
judge their capacity to represent us in
this live age. Which of them does
really advance any ideas for the settle
ment, to our interest, of the stubborn
problems affecting us in a national way,
beyond urging the following of a course
of action laid out by the recognized
leaders of the Democratic party? Which
of them presents any definite plan by
which Southern people may hope to
effect a betterment of their condition
through federal laws? I ask only that
they be weighed by their speeches as
the best and only safe measurement.
I admit that they are agreed on the
salient features of true Democracy, and
all of thnm endorse the Democratic
platform and urge allegiance to the
Democratic party as the medium of our
political advancement, but fpr progress
veness within party lines and the sug
gestion of measures that embody active
energy which will continue to draw life
and support from the recognized needs
of our people as they are shaped into
demands, we need something more than
mere pat subservience. We need
active mind that will formulate system
our claims, however advanced they may
be, yet always within Democratic
bounds, to the end that something defi
nite may be accomplished for the peo
ple who are certainl'y ready for all the
assistance that may be had from well
framed laws that look towards effecting
the very reforms and advantages that
Proper laws can bring.
In order to see the movement of
progress in which all the South is vi
tally interested we must be represented
by men who are alive to what the busi
ness interests of the country need. It
is time to lay aside sentimental politics
and develop the practical, business side
in a practical, business way, and the
attention of every v(oter is called to the
fact that by the utterances of Dr. R. F.
Smith in stating his platform and giv
ing an expoition of his views, there is
presente an embodiment of sour)d poli
tis and the only practical and sensible
plan of administration to be pursued by
the representatives of any Southern
district. As for the other candidates
for this office, they offer few sugges
tions. Some of them seem to be ham
pered by the weight of their past politi
cal records but have been gradually, as
the campaign progressed, falling into
Smith's platform in an undecided way
since they began to see that Smith's
presentation of the vital issues of this
campaign is drawing the attention of
the people and helping them to a reali
zation of the possibilities in store for
them if they only assert their claims.
For good Democratic doctrine, and
sound political methods to be advocated
by a member of Congress, Dr. Smith
has taken the lead throughout the cam
paign. Others are running on personal
~pularity and relying greatly on stump
g ability. Smith has advantages in
al these lines and has proven himself
the eual of any of them in forensic
abilit besides, because he comes to the
people with something to say to make
them think. He has studied the domi- I
nant questions in an intelligent way and<
is well posted on them. He has studied
them from the standpoint of the pro-(
ducer and1 the manufacturer as well and
offers suggestions which, if carried out
in legislation, will redound to the ad
vantage of both. He is 'interested in
every phase of business carried on in ~
this section and knows the needs of the
:ountry and who could better under
ake to represent us than the man
whose interests are identified with the C~
interests of the great mass of the pee- 0
le? And when these conditions are L
oupled with the rare ability that is
apable of ferreting out and grasping
he evils that contend against the suc- 2
essful enjoyment of the natural ad
antaes of this section which could be
;urnd to so much better account under C
aw that, instead of discriminating,
rould actually contribute to the pros
)erity of our country and the welfare u
f our own people, the thoughtful voter b
vill conclude that the man in this race
vho p resents a platform that means
omething is the man that deserves this
upport, and the really thoughtful man
