He spoke to the full limit of hli time,
but repeated the main theme so fre?
quently that the crowd began to grou
restive, and along toward the last lu
was Interrupt? d < onslderably by sever?
al Jokers in the crowd,
Amoni some of the pointed re
marks that he made were, referring
t<> Blense, "II I am elected governor

out of ?ne hundred bills I will either
-'uti them or veto them like a man.-'
"I won't open the doors of the prison*

conventions and go to negro churches
and teil the negroes that l am their
best friend and just talk the wav I
do to fool the ignorant whites."
When Judge Jones was Introduced
hs w ?s greeted with liberal applause,
the cheers being general throughout
the croud, but there were counter
cheers for Ideas.-, glSO.
Judge Jones without preliminaries
stated thai hs would first read hli
platform of principles, so that all men
might know exactly where he stood on
issu.-s of moment to all the people of
The platform which Is printed here?
with was read, but the reading was in?
terspersed with comments on each
paragraph, so that the speech was
really explanatory of the platform.
Judge Jones made a strong and lucid
presentation of the the principles for
which he stands, despite frequent In?
terruptions by a few Blease men who
took a position directly in front of
the portico from which the speeches
were delivered, and kept up a run?
ning comment, punctuated by cheers
for B ease, There was no general dis?
order, however, and there was a dls
pOSttl >n on the part of nearly all of
the crowd to hear all that Judge Jones
had to say.
The strong points in the speech w* re
his reply t.. Governor Blease'i charge
that his candidacy was backed by the
coporatlons, In this connection he
said that if the corporations were
hacking him he did not know it. that
every dollar that hs had spent or
would spend In the campaign, were
his own hard earned dollar-. Hut In
any event that charge cams with poor
grace from Qov, Blease, whose most
active supporter was Mr. Andrews,
the head of the great Atlantic Coast
Lumber Corporation, which had ac?
quired vast ar.-as ot timber land in

only supporting Qov. Blease, but was

ond Jerm. saying that if a man had
been true lo his oath ?d office, had
been loyal to hi> duties and the whole
people of the Htate, had taken the lead
in constructive work for tin- smie. he
would be given a second term be?
cause in- deserved it. it tin present
executive had been true to his duty,
we would all say vote for him, but
he has not and the man who votes
for him stultifies himself and is untrue
to ais country. He deplored race pre?
judice and denounced as a demagogue
the man who endeavored to make
political capital by an appeal t<> tbis
I r< Judlce,
Tin- talk of money being used In
the primary is chaff to catch fools, he
had n?i money t.> use that way and
Would not use it if he had it. He ex?
pected and felt assured thai there
would be a ti.e vote ind a full and
honest count. He wanted every vote
cast to be counted and on the 27th of
August was confident that the verdict
ot the people. so expressed, would
make him tlovernoi of South Carolina,
If . |.. ted. as h. expei ted lo be, he
would be the governor of the who|. of

enforce the laws against lawlessness
and crime <>f ail descriptions. He
would labor for thi Welfare and pros
perlty of South Carolina, and the
height of his ambition was to give
the Htate m administration of which
tiny w.aiid not be nshnmed, and
which they would feel was ? govern
meni of .ill the people.
The conclusion of the speech was a
scathing criticism <>t tin- pardon rec?
ord of Qov. Itlease. He referred to
the pardon of the Guffney murderers,
the alleged grounilH for which pardon
had been r11?- fact thai the nu n who
were killed were Yankees and the
slayers Southern men, On the <?th
er hand there was the pardon of the
Springfield murderer, who was a
Yankee, and he hail been pardoned
because he was a Northerner. Tin'
I abuse of the pardoning power was
Idenounced, ami it is evident that Oov.
Blease will have to do n lot of ex?
plaining to i iear this record before
tiie campaign ends, ror Judge Jones
j is taking strong ground against the
Judge Jones' platform follows:
To the Voters of South Carolina:
.\s a candidate for nomination as
Governor I wish to state hrielly cer?
tain principles and measure! which I
advocate and -'hall mot,, fully discuss
from time to time a-- t*i? - campaign
progresses and th.'fusion demands.
1, While the liquor question is not
deemed an issue in this campaign
some wish in.- t" declare my position.
I stand for county local option with
proper enforcement ol the law in ac?
cordance w Ith tin- resi it.
2, I favor just appropriations for
the effective maintenance of our state
institutions of learning, hut the im?
provement and development of the
common schools, and especially the
rural schools ol the State are mat?
ter! of gravest eon- ein and shall
have my keen Interest and hearty
3, The systematic conatruction and
maintenance of good roads should he
encouraged, not only as an economic
and efficient mean- for the improve?
ment of market facilities and the
stimulation <>f industrial development,
hut for the favorable effect
upon the counts churches ami schools
in pi < moting attendance. upon the
enlargement of tree, rural delivery
l.nd in rendering home life upon the
farm more desirable.
I. 1 favor the appointment of a
commission to examine as to the de?
sirability -f adopting some tystem of
land title registration like that known
as thi Torrens System. Sonic move?
ment of this kind was begun some
time ago. but so far nothing has come
of it. This system takes its name
from Robert Richardson Torrens and
was first enacted in Australia in 1S58.
Tiie main principles of this system
have been adopted in many countries
?Australia, Canada, England, ire
land. Germany, in a number of states.
BUCh as Massachusetts, Illinois, Cali?
fornia. Montana. Minnesota, Oregon
and Colorado, and has been introduc?
ed in Hawaii and the Phillipinei by
the I'ntted States government. I'n
der this system the title is examined
opHia'iy ami confirmed by a court
and the certificate Is a guarantee of
the title against the world.
While tin- plan necessarily Involves
some initial expense, as reason?
able charge for the registration and
for the guarantee fund, it saxes mote
in avoiding the successive expenses of
examining title every time the land is
sold or mortgaged. Fnder the pres?
ent system many defect! of title may
exist which an examination of the
record would not disclose, such for
example, as a claim of dow er, ad?
verse possession. Incapacity to convey,
eie. The plan avoids the uncertainty,
delay and expense of transferring
titles. in selling the land or borrow?
ing money upon it the transaction
may be effected with almost the ease
and simplicity of a transfer of stoeks
or bonds. Because of the difficulty
and uncertainty with reference to
land transactions under the old sys?
tem, real estate is least available as
an asset upon which to raise money.
The simplicity, cheapness, celerity
and safety with which lands may be
sold or mortgaged under the Torrens
System ought t>> make real estate
practically as available as high class
personalty and vastly increase the
ability of the land owner t-? utilize
his land as a rend) basis of credit
the easiest term-.
I favor the enactment of an
employers' liability and workmen*!
compensation statute, along the prin?
ciple of the New .b rsey statute adopt*
ol April i. r.Mi, ..r the Massachu?
setts statute adopted July 28, 1 9 1 1.
This legislation involves the abolition
of the common law defenses usually
made in suits for personal injuries,
vi/.: (Ii that the injury wan en used
by th. negligence ol a fellow servant;
(2 i that the Injured part) contributed
to the Injury by his own negligence;
t:: i that th.- Injured party assumed
the risks ol the employment. Either
of these defenses, if sustained, would
defeat a recover) under the com?
mon law I'lo above statutes abol?
ished th.-. defenses, except where
the contributory negligence was wll
ful. .ind provides a system of elective
compensation In accordance with :l
schedule civ im: amount of compensa?
tion for each described Injury, gener?

concerned The employer could cal?
culate with some certainty the exten'
of the loss under . fixed schedule of
compensation and ib t himself by
?I. Liberal pensions should be
awarded the Confederate soldiers as
recognition oi their patriotic an* he
roic services to tin- state.
7. The rights <?f our people must
I be protected against unlawful com?
bination of capital and our anti-trust
laws enforced with vigor.
8, The right of every white Demo?
cratic citizen of South Carolina to
vote in the primary should he seal
ously protected. I am opposed to re?
quiring a registration certificate as s
qualification for voting In the pri?
mary. Poreigners should not be per?
mitted to participate in our primar?
ies until they become naturalized.
y. We live umb r a Democratic gov?
ernment, and under nur constitution
the functions Of the legislative, ju?
dicial and executive departments are
separate and distinct, and he who ex
erclses the functions of one depart?
ment should not invade <>r usurp the
powers of another.
10. The pardoning power should
be exercised with great 1 are and only
then after careful Investigation by the
Board of Pardons. The pardoning
power is a sa< red trust and its abuse
Is a menace to the peace, order and
safety of the people.
11. The veto power of the Gover?
nor should n<?t be exercised arbitrar?
ily, nor to obstruct legislation, hut to
correct errors and prevent abuses
ami thwart the enactment of laws
clearly against the welfare of the peo?
1The great office of Governor
should he exercised for all th" peo?
ple and not for a faction only.
13. The State's peace, progress and
prosperity are dependent upon the
enforcement of (aw and order.
14. The people of this State are
already burdened with tXatlon and I
favor the reduction of taxes to the
minimum consistent with the efficient
administration of state ami County
1."?. The great problem for the up
country is t<> conserve the moisture
in the soil and to prevent erosion of
the land; ami the gnat problem for
the low-COUntry is to drain the lands.
Both conditions requite scientific
thought and action. A thorough sys?
tem of drainage by individual co?
operation and Federal aid. would re?
claim thousands of acres of the best
lands in the state, and I am heartily
in favor of such a system.
Following tlm speeches of the can?
didates for governor, the candidates
for other State offices in races where
there was opposition made, short talks
to the pe,,pie who had collected to
hear them. After the tirst of these
speakers had made his remarks the
meeting was moved inside of the
Court House where each of the c an?
didates was heard. The onlj change
from the program was the Introduc?
tion of Hon. W. .1. Talbert, candidate
for the I'nited States Senate who told
a few jokes and made a few remarks
about what he would do later on.
