than 60,000 votes, and the steady increase
in his strength leaves iittlt,
doubt in my mind that he will make>
U(P the five or six thousand votes!
necessary to go in on the first ballot," \
said Senator Jno. L. McLaurin, upon |
his return to Columbia after ,a siay {
of several days in the Pee Dee section
of the state. The senator paid his
respects to the Manning circular which
has been issued, quoting an editorial
'in which Mr. McLaurin is referred to
as a "political demagogue.'' "So far
as being a 'demagogue' is concerned/'
he says, "the class of people wno are
supporting Manning call any one a
demagogue who disagrees with them.*'
^Vthile viewing the circular with
amusement, ne again canea auenuou
to Manning's record as a "creature of
the corporations," and the injury
which he felt would be done the state
by his re-election, which, however, he
did not now consider possible.
"The daily newspapers," he said,
"started out to prevent information
frcm getting to the public as to the
compaign, and might have succeeded
had The Charleston American not been
started ; nd broke this up. We often j
hear of 'the subsidized press,' but!
most certainly in South. Carolina it nj
wonderful with v.hat unanimity the!
c'aily papers have backed Manning." j
When asked what he thought of
political conditions generally, Senator
McLaurin said:
"Well, there has been some change
in the relative positions of (Manning
end Cooper since I gave out a public
statement on August 5th. I said
'ihen that Cooper would not receive
- i
more han vf',000 votes. There nas
been a steady drift during that time
from Manning to Cooper, and I now
believe that Cooper will receive aiDout
as many votes as Manning. I notice
today a statement from the Cooper
headquarters, in which Mr. Cooper's
xranager gives Blease 48,000 votes,
Cooper 45,000, land Manning 38,000. I
fcave gone over with some care the
various counties iu the state, ana i
dc not see how any one can figure
Blease less than 60,000 votes. Of the
other 70,000, I should figure that
Manning and Cooper have idbout an
equal number, witfi. Manning on the
lose and Cooper on the gain. The
steady increase in Blease's strength,
however, which is coming from both j
Manning and COoper, leaves little,

make up the five or six thousand |
votes necessary to go in on the firs:
"The campaign meetings through
the Pee-Dee were a distinct frost for
Manning and Blease showed far more
) strength than I had anticipated,
i "A very amusing thing occurred a
day or two ago. A circular is beinj
got out in answer to the letter which
I wrote from Richmond. This cam>
paign circular attacks me as ta 'po
j litical demagogue,' and announces
Manning's support of the state warehouse
system. The manner in which
I got hold of one of these documents
is laughable, though probably prophetic.
The printer in Columbia, who
is doing the work gave one of them
(probably the first off the press,) to
his carrier boy and told him to take
| it to the governor's office. Instead
' of going up to the capitol, the T>oy
carried it round to Blease's office, aiid
it was sent down to me. When asl:ed
about it, the carrier said: "Why, they
tol, me to take it to de Ouv'nor's of

Sir. Blease." As I say, this is prophetic.

of South Carolina and I do net believe
that, merely because it as been
the custom to elect a man a second
time, they will fail to repudiate the
crowd who are backing Manning, 'n
fact; they have already done so. Ths
very entrance of Cooper into the fiela

Because Adler-i-ka acts on BOTH
lower and upper bowel, ONE SPOONFUL

removes such surprising foul matter
that a few doses often relieve or prevent

District, August 22.?Oscar B. Carlton,
of Allendale, South Carolina, was
working in Virginia and joined their
National Guard, the 1st regiment of
infantry from that State. He was
with "his regiment when they were ordered
to the border and at "Whitmire,
where his ssctlcn stepped for a sliort
time in South. Carolina, Private Carlj
ton got off the train to get a cooa cola
and .before he could get back on the
train pulled out and left him. He
' * * A1 nn/i
j Wired JQ13 major Ol UltJ anu<tuuu ana
| the latter telegraphed him back to
join the regiment in Atlanta and to
use the telegram for transportation.
He went to Atlanta as per instructions
from the major's telegram, but
j found tTie Virginians had gone.
| Private Carlton remained in Atlanta
two days without funds and without
anything to eat and then made his
way back to his home at Allendale
| intending to join the Virginia troops
: from there. In Allendale he wa .
arrested by the chief of police as \
deserter and taken to the South Caro
lina mobilization grounds at Camp
Styx and turned over to the soldier^
"All's Well," Etc.
The /Virginian wus brought on out
to the border by the South Carolina
troops and he /got very "chummy"
with the men, those being detailed to
guard him becoming his best friends
He is of gentlemanly demeanor and
his attitude was that of making the
best of the unfortunate situation. The
matter was reported to the army of
ficials and tne Virginia comimuuci
and Private Carlton had copies of the
telegrams he had sent to his company
cfter getting left in South Carolina
to "back up his statements. The explanations
were finally made through
the proi>er channels and Private Carlton
has been instructed to rejoin hib
command at Brownsville without tri*l
He is now all right and will probably
leave for Brownsville in a few days.
Meanwhile he has the privilege of th-camp
and is not confined in the guard
tent, where he was kept until it w.is
I established t'vr.t his account of how he
come to leave his regiment was correct.
i Mr. Carlton was born and reared at
Allendale and his wife is living there
I now. I
i Col. Allison Holds School,
j Lieut. Col. .T. B. Allison, of the 2d,
j instructs the non-commissioned offij
cers of the regiment twice a week
and makes talts to the commiccioned
officers every day. His talks have
been so far largely ulong the lines o?
camp preparation. He is untiring in
his efforts and Col. Springs said this
{morning that the regiment was for
tunate in getting such a -. plendid omcer
,-and he spoke of the invaruabU.
! assistance he had already been to both
| the officers and men of the 2d. Col.
; Allison is thoroughly familiar with
j the National Guard and he is in a
i position to bo of a great value to the
! regiment. He is a most efficient officer
and is ready day or night to render
such assistance or give such information
as is wanted. The good
results of his instructions are already
appearing and the regiment, it Is believed,
will accomplish so much more
in a shorter space of time as a result
o* the experience and training which
<"V>1 Allison has enjoyed and the in
structions which he is giving daUv
to the commissioned and non-comn
issioned officers.
Gnarding Horses and Mules.
The Palmetto regiments have been
riven the duty of guarding the b^;
ctrral of the Government near Fort
Fiiss, where over S.OOO horses are
J collected for the use of the troops
! An officer of th' g uard and twentyj
frur privates are necessary to guard
j the corral. The South Carolinians
j relieved the Michigan militiamen who
| had been performing this duty.
It is a sight to see the tremendous
I number of horses and mules which
i are being collected here by the Gov
! ernment. Yesterday a trainload
i horses came in from St. Louis anil
they were good animnls. too. They
were taken to the corral, guarded by
the Palmetto men.
The 2d is expecting Major J. S!hapter
Caldwell, formerly assistant
.Adjutant General, to arrive in a few
days and assume his duties as first
lieutenant of Company G, the Columbia

company street the other night
and gave some boxing exhibition.3.
Some of the Camden boys took on th-3
Keystone State men, but were not
able to do very mucb. with them.
The officers of the 3d h-.ittalion of
the 1st were entertained at supper the
other night by the officers of Company
C of the 8th. Pennsylvania.
There are eight short men in the i
i Camden company, which form what
| is known as the "runt" squad ana |
j they all occupy the S!;.me tent. This!
I was the onlv ^auad which had started!
flower garden around their tent and
had built a rook protection raised to
some feet around the side of the tent.
When the big rain swept over the
crmp on Thursday night the "runt
s uad found their tent flooded, tfci

washed away and they had to bale the

Taken by Snrprise,
Just after Capt. McLeod, of the Oamj
dm company, reacted camp here last
w eek with his company, and while tha
iren had just begun to grub the cactu?
he was called by name and on turning
around was greeted by his brotherir-law,
J. F. Arthur, whom he hadn'i
: seen in nine years. Mr. Arthur is a
member of the 6th Pennsylvania and
holds a sergeancy. in that regiment.
He brought Capt. McLeod some ice
water and it is needless to say tha*.
the meeting was a pleasant one for
both of the gallant soldiers. Ser^t.
Arthur served seven years in the regular
army and was working in Penns:
lvania when the President calls J
for the National Guard. He could noi
! resist the impulse, but joined the com!
pany in the town in which he was and
i came on to the border.

Lepnblioan Candidate's Waring
Bloody Shirt Will Get Him
The State.
Washington, Aug. 19.?Senator B.
R Tillman, in ia speech in the senate
today, severely rebuked 'Charles Evans
Hughes, candidate for the presidency
on the Republican ticket, for waving
"the bloody shirt" of sectionalism
throughout the country in his efforts
to get hira:elf into the White House.
(After expressing the sentiment thi*
he had believed, "with the T7ar Between
the States gone these 50 years,
there had comd a broa i peace between
r.he people, it had remained for
Mr. Hughes again to stir the fires of
the '60s. -Senator Tillman said: "I
read in one of our newspapers yesterday
of a 'one man pamde' up Pen*
sylvanii ave-ue?a lone Union veteran,
-uiheralded and alone, marching
in celebration of his own enlistment
in the Civil war. While I accord
full credit to him for the patriotism
thrtt prompted him to respond to tha
colors then, and can understand anv
excuse the vanity even of such an expression
of it today, I could not hut
be reminded of that other lone figure
that has gone parading and shouting
about the country, a veteran of neither
side in any flay, waving the banner of
'sectionalism' before the people who
are trying to forget; if, indeed, they
have not already forgotten.
