Meeting* Wore Friendly?Senator
Tlllman Not Present ? Other
Speakers Talk About Their Rec?
Columbia, June 26.?The cam?
paign for the position of United
states senator from South Carolina
opened in a good-humored, happy
go-lucky fashion yesterday morning
in the Richland county court house,
where two of the candidates. N. 1'..
Dial of Laureni ami \v. Jasper Tal
bert of Parksville, had an audience
of about 100 voters to hear their
speeches. B. R. Tlllman, the third
candidate for the senate, was n:-t
present. A. F, Lever who is unop- J
posed for reelection to congress from
the Seventh district, did not attend
the meeting. W. Hampton Cobb, al?
so unopposed for reelection, an
nounced briefly his candidacy for
the position of solicitor of the Fifth
circuit, which he has held for the
past four years.
Both the candidates for the sen ?c
who spoke to the Richland voters
e.\pressed the wish that their cam?
paign might be conducted on high
plane, and if the meeting yesterday
were a fair sample their wish will be
fulfilled. They indulged in friendly
jibes at each other, but their speech?
es were without a trace of bitterness
or animosity. Each of them declared
that in their opinion Senator Tillman
ought not to hang on to the office
he had held for IS years for senti?
mental reasons, if he were physically
and Mentally unfit to serve the Stale.
Mr. Talbert intimated that Sen itor
