The Senatorial campaign has opened, and it is our judgment that neither of the candidates have the nomination "cinched." It will be a strenuous struggle from now untifthe vote is count ed. It is a healthy sign when the voters have so much good ma terial to select from, all :f the gentlemen now before the people are qualified for the high office of United States Senator. The candidates are Hon. E. D. Smith of Sumter, ex-Governor John Gary Evans of Spartanburg, Hon. George Johnstone, of New berry, Hon, R. Goodwyn Rhett of Charleston, Hon. 0. B. Martin of Pickens, Col. W. W. Lumpkin of Columbia, and Mr. John P. Grace of Charleston. In the recent past men were selected for these positions through fac tional influence, but happily for the State, no such condition ex ists now; ability and merit will guide the voters in their selec tion. It is as it should be. The candidates who are seek ing the suffrages of the people are well known. Mr. Smith has rendered the people a great ser vice with his untiring efforts in behalf of the farmers, in this State, and throughout the cotton growing States. He has been a faithful servant of the masses, and by his work the material in terests of the farmers have been g:aatly enhanced. Mr. Evans has been in public life for many years. He was Governor for one term, and ran for the United States Senate twice. He is an able debater. Mr. Johnstone has the reputation of being one of the best criminal lawyers in the State, and has served in Congress. He too, is an able debater and a man of high intellectual attainments. He has been a candidate for the Senate before. Mr. Rhett is now Mayor of Charleston, a lawyer and a banker. He is regarded an authority on banking and commercial law. He has never before sought the suffrages of the people of the State. He is a magnificient man, broad mind ed and, calculated if elected, to be an influential force. Just how his entrance into this campaign will effect things is, as yet problematic. Hon. D. C. Hey ward was forced to withdraw from the race on account of ill health, and it was only after he withdrew Mr. Rhett consented to go before the people. The en forced retirement of Hon. D. C. Heyward is deplored by those who were going to support him, and those who were not, and it is the sincere hope he .vill regain Shis health. Hon. 0. B. Martin1 is nofa stranger to politics, he; -has served several terms as State Superintendent of Educa tion and is a good campaigner, his speeches always catch the crowd, and he wins their ap olause. Col. Lumpkmn is a jolly speaker, and is the man who started to run against Tillman, but changed his mind. He is run ning on a kind of a catch-em gwine-and-a-comin' platform,far mer, drummer, railroad, labor, and PROHIBITION. If all of these elements support him, lhe is a sure winner. Mr. Grace is a Charleston lawyer, was at one time secretary to Congressman Elliot. His entrance came some what as a surprise, and lie be ing practically unknown in the State. it is thought by some he is in this fight in a spirit of retal iation against Rhett, both being from the same city, and both having figured in city politics. Rhett was twice elected mayor. and Grace was defeated 'for sheriff. Mr. Grace may develop on the hustings and surprise the natives. South Carolina will be well represented with any of the can didates, and it is to wait untilI the primary to find out who will carry off the prize. COLLETON KICKS ON LEGARE. The Press and Standard of Walterboro has recently been placed upon our exchange list. It is a good paper, and it con tains 53 candidates cards. Thus demonstrating that Colleton county is not indifferent about public affairs, that its citizens are ever ready to serve the pub lic-no office in Colleton goes by default. The Press and Stand ard complains of Hon. Geo. S. Legare doing very little for Col leton. and mentions about read ing of Congressman Patterson's district getting appropriations and rural routes, --but Colleton gets none of these things." Con gressman Patterson represents a seaport district which contains government property that must be maintained,hence the govern ment makes appropriations, and would be compelled to do so, even if Mr. Patterson was not there. Congressman Legare too. represents a sea coast district, :,roperties, and the governmen s compelled to make large ap propriations for these. The dii ference between Legare's distric .d Patterson's. is that Legar thas the work of looking afte the installing of a new propert; while Patterson has only to lool after a property that has bLe: installed many years, Legare' involving hundreds of thousand of dollars. while Patterson's onl: a few hundred. Then. too. Lc gare does a great deal of wor. for our inland waterways. S far as the rural routes are con cerned Legare has done a vas amount of work along this lime but conditions have much to d with securing rural routes whic a Congressmen cannot help: fo instance: The postal departmen has certain requirements for th establishing of rural routes,andi rests with the people to compl, with these requirements. If th puIlic roads and popalation i sufficient a rural route can b established wherever it is want ed. All that the Congressma can do in this matter is to file th necessary petition after it ha been forwarded to him by hi constituents. The Congressme have nothing whatever to d with establishing these routes It often happens the Congress man will accompany a route It spector over a route, but that i only for political effect, he ha no voice in it. We have watched Congress man Legare's course in Congres and have no hesitency in sayin he has been zealously raithful t his trust. He has done muc for the entire State. His ass< ciations in Washington ha brought about a kindlier feelin for South Carolina than ever es isted before, and while Legar does not make a whole lot c speeches upon the floor, he i regarded as one of the workin members, always at his post c duty. Legare and Lever hay done much substantial work fc South Carolina, and we hope hi health will permit him to remai in Congress for many years. The Press and Standard say '"It is likely possible that Doi chester, Clarendon, Berkele and Colleton can elect a Cot gressman, and we may be force to do so in self defense." Why Is there some other man aspirin to Congress from the first di: trict? If so, it is his privilege t come out, but if he does he mu show himself the better qual fled. It will not do to array th country counties against th city, the people are not going i vote for a man just because h lives in the country. It is ne< essary to have men of ability an experience in Congress, and tb longer a man is kept in Congres the better qualified he become: and the more influence he exert: We do not think, in standing b Legare, that we are, as the Pres and Standard puts it, "bein used as a cat's paw to pull poli ical chesnuts out of the fire fc Charleston politicians at electio times." The fact is; we believ our Congressman is doing whi he can for the entire district. El cannot build a navy yard, or a immigrant station in Manning or Walterboro, because thes things need a sea port. He cai not, nor can any one else. hav the government to build fin post office buildings in Walte: boro or Manning because th postal business done in thes places is not suflicient. He car not establish rural routes in con munities where the people d not ask for them, and then, ur less the population and roa conditions will permit W think our esteemed contempt rary has not considered the cor ditions existing in the first dih trict. IF REPUBLICAN, WHY NOT CAPERS? The Republicans are nowi Chicago making their standar bearers, and as was expected William H. Taft will carry o the nomination. He was fough bitterly by the Forakers, Car nons. and Hughes, but he wa too heavy a weight for th "allies." The Brownsville i dent estranged a great portio of the negro vote from Taft, an they were loud in their oppos tion to his nomination. Thi gave the Democratic press hop of the doubtful Slates where th negro vote is a factor, that th Democratic party w% be th gainer, and that Bryan, wh will be the party's nominee, wi] defeat Taft in November. The Republican party like well organized army, is discir lined, all this talk about th negro in the States of Ohic Illinois, Iowa, New York an Indiana going over to the Demc cratic party is bosh; their prc test against Taft's nominatio ends -with the convention, the will fall in line and march to th tune of the G. 0. P. as the have always done. The name of Hon. John G Capers of South Carolina ha been mentioned for second plac on the Republican ticket, an some of the papers in the Stat are disposed to oppose it. Whn have they to do with it anyway If Mr. Capers can get the nomr nation for vice-president from his party South Carolina shoul not object to it. What showin would a South Carolinian have t get a place on the national tickc from the Democratic party Captain Capers would make good running mate for Taft. H is a good campaigner, we. versed in national pol.itics. and man of exceedingly fine ability His elevation fo the xice-presi dency would be of value to Sout. Carolina. and we say if the lRe publicans are to contn i noowe we should like to see Ho. G. Capers prciding over ui t debted to Mr. Capers for much. his relations with the party in - power gave him an opportunity t to save his people considerable ' embarassment, and when we r look over the State and see the work of Mr. Capers, we think t the people should feel grateful i that they had a friend at court. A SQUARE DEAL WANTED. The people of South Carolina believe in a square deal, and wLen a candidate for an office is t not being treated fairly, it will winn sympathy for him. We t t notice when the candidacy of t Hon. Cole L. Blease is mention ed by certain newspapers they have a way of disparaging him: for instance, The State on Mon t day says "For governor Martin I F. Ansel will have some opposi- 1 t tin from C. L. Blease of New berry." The friends of Mr. Biease resent such treatment, 1 "will have some opposition from C. L. Blease." is in our opinion a very sneering way to speak of a candidate for the office of gov ernor, and unless it is discon tinued, Governor Ansel will have good cause to ask to be de 1 ivered from his friends. We do not make this protest as a Blease partisan, not at all, but in the interest of fair play. It is our judgment the people of s South Carolina are going to give s Governor Ansel a second term, but we also believe that Colonel Blease will poll a very large and 1 s complimentary vote, but if the masses get it into their heads 0 that he is the victim of unfair treatment, Governor Ansel's present majority will dwindle into a minority. The very purpose of the pri mary system is to give every e Democrat a fair show before the people. If The State has any s argument to bring to bear why the people should vote against Blease, make it in a straight for e ward and fearless manner, it r ought not through its local news s columns slur at the candidate, by n saying that-his opponent "will have some opposition," to create S the impression that the opposi tion is not taken seriously. Congressman J. E. Ellerbe " and one of his opponents Hon. W. Murchison met on the streets in Marion last Monday, and in dulged in a fisticuff. Things 0 must be warm in the 6th district, t glad we are civilized over here. e Visitors and citizens in Colum e bia have been subjected to much 0 annoyance from being "held up" e and robbed, but the police have at last nabbed three of the cul d prits. These turn out to be e negroes, but it is our belief most s of the depi-edations were comn mitted by white men. The pun Sishment should be very severe. s The Governor of Kentucky Shas put a stop to a further dis Sgrace of the American jury sys r tem by pardoning Caleb Powers, a ex-Secretary of State, charged e with being a party to the assas t sination of Senator William e Goebel. The next thing we ex a pect to hear~is the friends <>f the ~Goebelites going into the assas e sination business, and Powers will be their victim. e Mayor Rhett of Charieston -has announced himself a candi e dates for the Senate has given to e the press an outline of his views on some of the pending gues .tions. He writes like a student 0of public affairs, intelligently on the currency laws, tariff, rail roads. drainage, immigration e and other matters. There is none of the demagogue in what he says. Lack of space prevents our publishing his letter. It was reported in Manning yesterday that at the initial1 a meeting today in Sumter, an - effort will be made to chill the candidacy of Smith in his native i courity. We sincerely hope t there is no foundation for this .report. If any such a thing is a done. the people will know it is a a worked up trick of politicians - with an ulterior motive. Sum ter a has men who are nursing polit j ical ambitions, and these should .discourage anything that is cal. sculated to create false impres sions. Sumter is called the game 3 cock county, but if there is per mitted any howling down tactics of one of Sumter's sons, it will be a boomerang. It is a bad1 1 bird that befowls its own nest. r Elsewhere we print a commu - nication from Mr. J. E. Kelly, the same Mr. Kelly whose name 1 , has appeared to criticisms in the i newspapers before. Usually -our critics say somethirng which -need an answer but Mr. KelIly's I letter is the limit, and answers - itself. We sincerely hope that a this same Mr. Kelly who would t p have such a keen perception ofi the public service, and the duties .of officers, will offer to the peo s pe of Clarendon his services as e a member of the board -of com I missioners, and if lie is nomii e nated, we are sure the delega-' t tion would gladly have him ap ?pointed. It is our opinion, men -of the Kelly stamp will not offer ain the primary for the position. I f they do, we kvill be agreeibly disappointed. It is not necessary 1 for us to explain again the legis t 'lation enacted for Clarendon at 1 the last session of the legisla-r t ture; the p~eople understand, and e appove of it. We have always Ibeen opposed to high assess aients for candidates, and espec .ially are opposed to an inequita - ble assessment. We made no - protest the last time, because of - personal interest, being a candi r ate ourself we said nothing. A I .: maestion from us means bos a .. to Kelly. Ain't he a great: Manning lheeds a Sewerage System. iitr The Marning Times: There is a very important matter hat at an early day must necessarily ngage the attention of the people of his comiunity, hence this letter that hey might be thinking about it. This problem will confront the Court louse Commission, the Board of Trus ees of this school district. and the soard of Alderman of the town. I 'efer to some system of sewerage for the iew court house, the new school build ng, and the growing demand for some ystem on the part of the citizens of he town. The new court house and iew school building are to be fitted rith modern plumbing,an adequate sys em of sewerage will be essentihl. I ake it that all who have useddry wells r cess pools are agreed, that for these ublic buildings they are simply out of he gaestion. The architects tell us, ith our abundant water supply, the ifting of this water in order to get the ecessary supply and pressure in these )ublic buildings would be a simple natter. I am hoping great things from the oard of assessors and the equalization >oard of this town. and think what I Lm about to propose practicable, with ut the town going greatly into debt, nd even without the necessity of its ssuing any bonds. Let the Board of Alderman have the own surveyed just as if it was going o put in a complete sewerage system or the town. As the town lies about ,qually on both sides of Brooks or Main street. and as the court house and chool building demands are pressing. >ut down at the proper level for con iections in the future from other treets a line of large pipe, beginning it .loseph Sprout's residence and run iing down Main stree, to the Thames >lace, and then following the road to ,he first stream of Black river. Say to >ut in this line of piping would cost he town $7,000, as some estimate it, with the increased valuatiou of prop rty which is bound to follow, the ie mill levy now upon the taxpayers, would be a mere bagatelle compared vith the benefits to follow. The court aouse and school would be served and hose citizens of the town, desiring to l1 so could at their own expense, and .nder the supervision of the town tuthorities connect up with this main ine of sewer. If this idea be not ap proved. the Court House Commission. School Trustees, town authorities and those citizens desiring to connect up with some such line of piping, should i.t an early day get together and de ise some equitable plan of jointly meeting this expense, for in my jude ent some system of sewerage will be lemanded by the pending improve ments. I have no doubt the Court' House commission and the School Board of Irustees, with both of which I am con ected, would be glad to have the views of any one interested. Very truly yours, W. C.

One of the Committee Replies. ditor The Manning Times: In an editorial of the 10th you criti ~ise the acts of the executive commit ee, and express a wish that the county hairmnan will call a meeting, and have he matter reconsidered. Now Mr. Editor, we the committee ifter due deliberation, saw fit to act as e did, and we are not school boys, either are we subject to a boss, to tell s when and how we shall act. You at some length defend the pres nt practice of appointing commis iioners. Claiming that it is only an dvisory board, and that the only way o get good men, is for the delegation o appoint them. Up to the present the commlissioners 2ave been appointed by the delegation md you claim the best business men aave been appointed. Lets see the re ~ults. When our first Supervisor Felder) went into office the county was n debt, he by economy redreced it. When the second (Owens) went in, it vas reduced more. Until the county vas practically out of debt. ' Then the ffice of commissioners was made, and >ur best business men appointed by the llegation. What has been the result'a ['he county has been run in debt,' more md more,~until at the last session of he legislature provisions were made or' a $10.000 bond issue. And also a il passed advising the commissioners o use 86.000 of the school fund to pay ack indebtedness, and for other pnr oses of the county. Now 1 believe we he office of commissioners is not nee ssary. It is an expense to the county, vith no benefits. But as one of the ajoity of the executive committee I elieve the'people can select men that vil look after the supervisor and the ounty's interest, just as well or better han it has been. You claim that we vil not be able to get good mlen to 'un. Veryv well if we fail to o'et good nen the~ delegation can abo~ish the >ieie. We have too many anyway. Now as to assessments. You claim hey are too high, and without rhyme i'r eason. in propor'tion to length of erm and increase of salary. tbey are 0 higher than they were in ;he last 'ampaign. If there is any inequality n proportion to salary it shotfd h'mye >een adjusted before now. I am a uew nan on the committee. But I have ever heard any kick before. Possibly 'ou were afraid to kick before. Now you claim the assessment on epresentati ves is nothing more nor ess than a hold up. We claim that a eprecntative should pay as much as he senate. The salary is the same ad is just as responsible. There hould be no kick from our present enator or Representatives. They iave raised their salary from $4.00 to i.00 per day. Now you claim that -our protest is in the interest of the blic service. Now it is a fact that he assessments are the same, and less n poportion to term and salary than hey ere in the last campaign. Why idn't you kick then, you were at can lidate then. Possib'ly you are like one >f the Representatives (Woods) you vant a 25e assessment on candidates, .d each member of a club to be assess id 10e to pay the expenses of the cam aign. Then everybody could run, rovided they payedi THE' TIMES $3.00 o publish their announcment. Now Mr. Editor the assessments on :andidates in the last campaign failed o pay' the expecnses by over $100. You rer'e payed for printing though, all ut 85e'. I suppose you want the learn 'd getemen that want office to get in mithout any expense, and let the peo lie foot the bills, managers serve for Lothing etc. 'J. E. KEL~LY. W. I. Ward of D~yersburg.

We understand that he goesi to the school at Denmark at a larger| salary. Misses Collins. Scarborough and DuBose of the old corps will be I back. It was announced at the recent clos ing exercises that a new grade will be added next session and with the eighth and ninth grades of the present organ ization will form the high school de partment. Professor Hand when here empha-' sized the fact that in order to fully com ply with the high school law so as to become a beneficiary of that fund,there will have to be added courses in domes tic science, manual training, agricul ture and chemistry. He also hinted pretty strongly that the present coursse of study would have to be advanced considerably in order to get a school where its graduates can enter full freshman classes at the colleges. Our friend John S. Watt was in town expatiating on his watermelon patch some days ago. He said you could see them glistening all over the field. He generally gets them in first. We had talked him around until we had the patch pretty well located when he said he had planted peas in the batch: Now, who would want to search every pea patch he saw? That was a mean trick, and I hear George Ridgill has gone and done the same thing. Imported melons have been on our streets for a good many days, having been brought in by our hustling mer chant W.

It does seem that women have more than a fair share of the aches and pains that afflict humanity; they must "keep up," must attend to duties in spite of constantly aching backs, oi- headaches, dizzy spells, beafring-down pains; they must stoop over, when to stoop means torture. They must walk and bend and work with racking pains and many aches from kidney ills. Kidneys cause more suffering than any other organ of the body. Keep the kidneys well and health is easily maintained. Read of a remedy for kidneys only that helps and cures the kidneys and is endorsed by people you know. Mrs. M. E. Pipkin, living on Church street. Manning, S C., says: "'I suffered from 'dull, hagging backaches and had distressing pains through my kidney regions. I was very restless at night and in the morning felt tired and lan guid, having no strength or energy. I was also greatly annoyed by the kidney secretions, they being very frequent inI action and when allowed to stand con tained a dark sediment. I read about Doan's Kidney Pills, procured them and began their use in accord-mnce with the directions.
