(Continued from 2nd Page.) proving, The representatives of the poople in the House and in the Senate no ionger fight the appropriations for educational purposes, and while the appropriations may at times appear larger than the revenues of the State would seem to warrant, there can be no doubt that these representatives are doing what they think will further the best interests of the State, and tbelr attitude towards the subject Is a cause of greatest gratification. For years, in the House and in tbe-Senate, be has been in close touoh with the at airs of the State, and while he does not wonder at the howl raised at n creased aproprlations, it must be re membered that conditions have great ly cnanged. The inequalities in tax assessment are glaring. He favors the carrying out of the recommendations made by the finance committee in or der to wipe our tbese inequalities. He wards the people against the in cipient tendency to corruption In elections, which has recently mani fested itself. It is to be regretted that the liquor question should have attained such prominence. There are other matters worthier of attention. He is not the ohamplon of whiskey, but be is deeply Interested in the moral welfare of the State. He is not a srraddler and he will not seek' to befog the public mir.d on any is sue He does not advooate the dis pensary as run in tl a past. Whether the allegations of corruption and Kraft In the dispensary are true or uot, the people of Sout? Carolina will not stand Tor even the suspicion of ?luoh things. Where there is so much ?moke there must be some lire, and ? he p. ople of tbi S&ate will not stand fr>r the dlnpFDsaiy as it has been con duct a If corruption and graft do zist in v e dlspensaryj then it must oe purgt d of the odium or else the ?hcle thing must go. Wipe the dls p nsar out ana w:;at will you have ? ft? Men will have whiskey. Pub lic sei liratnt does not warrant the belief that prordbicion can be en 'oiced. He has studied the question carefully, and h nelieves It can be purged. Read the Raysor-Mannlng ?ill bil l you will find that it goes to he root of the matter, the purchas i g of the liquor. He does not be ? leve in local option. His reason for ?An will be given later. But that fhce of Governor Is a purely exeou ive (tflce and should be be made Guver. ur he will enforce the law as it stands on ?he statute books. The Hon JOHN J. MCMAHAN, r C ilumbia, tue next candidate for G ivercor to address the audience, prefaced his remarks with the state ment that every man is his brother's Keeper, and that it follows, therefore, that every citizen should be alive to his olvio duties. The scope of gov ernment has been largely widened. It is no longer confined to mere police regulation. We are shocked as we glance about us at the evidences of corruption abroad in the land, both within and without our State. When we compare the conditions of today with the conditions which obtained in the past we must be ashamed and surprised. Dispensary corruption, is not the only corruption to be found in South Carolina today. Our duty is imperative to place only the best and highest men in office. The pri mary system 'is a great system, but under it there has unfortunately grown up the custom of magnifying tbe duties of the candidate and mini mizing the duties of tbe citizen. He favors the improvement of the schools and commends the establishment of the State reformatory. He stand* today for every educational reform which he has ever advocated. He urged the importance of the drainage of the coastal region and advocated the establishment of every county of a model farm. Time does not permit him to disouss the dispensary. Per sonally he is opposed to the use of liquor, but he doesn't believe prohibi tion practicable. He favors the Sta*e dispensary, but not the dispen sary as it now exists. He would first have it cleansed and the rascals in it placed bebind prison bars. The next candidate for Governor to address tbe Democrats of Dor abester was tbe Hon JOHN T. SLOAN, af Columbia. He was born in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, it old Pendleton. He went in the army at 16, and went through the bloody campaigns of 1864 and 1S65, In Virginia. He was captured at Ap pomattox, and after tbe war he re urned to Pendleton and went to tschool there. In 1866 he entered South Carolina College, from which Institution he wai. graduated with honors. He reviewed his services th the city of his adoption, where he has been engaged in the practice of law for more than a f core of years. He was a wearer of the red shirt in the days of 1876. He reviewed his record as Representative and Senator from Richland County. He was par ticularly proud of his services in founding Clemson and Winthrop Colleges and in the defence of the Citadel and South Carolina College. He was proud of his record as Lieu tenant Governor. He has spent the best days of his life In tbe service of his State, and he believes himself en titled to promotion to the Governor ship. He wants to see a school house on every hill and one In every valley of the State. He is not a mere talker for education. When the Methodist Female College was built in Columbia recently he gave them twenty acres of land, today worth 82,000. He is plainly and unequivocally for the dis pensary. He believes it is now, and that it always will be, the best solu tion of the whiskey question. But,if he is elected Governor he will purge it from any corruption which may now infest it. He doesn't believe prohibition can be enforced and in support of his belief he cited his per sonal experiences in search of lemon ade in Maine, and soda water in Kan sas. OTHER CANDIDATES. The Hon. T. 0. McLeod, the only candidate for Lieutenant-Governor, made a short speech outlining his pos ition on various matters. He favors a reformed dispensary. Messrs. R M. McCown, of Florence, J. B. Morrison, of Charleston, L. M. Ragln, of Clarendon, candidates for Secretary of State, were on hand and made short speeches. Mr. J. Fr?ser Lyon, of Abbeville, was the only candidate for Attorney* General present. He went for tbe d's pensary with gloves eff, and was fre quently applauded by the anti-dispen sary part of the audience. Mr. L. G. Walker, of Grpenville, candidate for Comptroller Ganeral, was next Introduced and gave his reasons why the people should vote for him. Comptroller General Jones, who Is a candidate for re-election, was unable to be present on account of of ficial business. Col. Boyd, of Greenville, and Col. Haskell, of Biohland, tbe two candi dates for Adjutant and Inspector General, next addressed the audience and solicited their votes. Hon. O. B. Martin, candidate for Superintendent of Education, has no opposition. He, therefore, contented himself with telling two or three capital stories and pledging anew his devotion to the best interests of pub lic education in tbe State. He favors, the dispensary system because if tbe 8200,000 a year obtained by the schools from this source are removed and nothing is provided to take its place the result will be little short of cal amitous. Messrs. Jas. Oansler, of Lancaster, Sellers, of Marion, J. M. Sullivan, of Anderson, J. A. Summersault, of Rlchland, and Col. J. H. Warton, the incumbent, all candidates for railroad commissioner, were introduced and made short speeches. Col. W barton was the last of the candidates for State office and Chair man Dennis announced as the last Speaker of the day Col. W. W. Lump kin, of Columbia, who is opposing Senator Tlllman for eleotion to the United States Senate. When Col. Lumpkin came forward two or three "wool bats" in different parts of the audience started to cheering for Tlll man. The crowd took up the call and for some little time so great was the noise that It was useless for the speak er to attempt to make himself heard. Col. Lumpkin bided bis time patient ly, however, and when Chairman Den nis bad finally succeeded in restoring order he started right in to pay back in his own coin the man who bad star ed the oheering for Senator Tlllman.
