The United States senatorial cam paign meeting in Bamberg Saturda; partook in some degree of the boister ous nature of the gubernatorial cam paign meeting 2 years ago. That wa the "rough" day of the entire cam paign that year. It was on the morn ing succeding the Spartanburg dicta phone episode, and the language o one of the candidates in referring t< the alleged revelations was so nau seating that ladies were compelled ti leave the grounds. At no other plao , visited this campaign have the line , of partisan cleavage been so definite ly drawn. Other voters have no been so emphatic in their preferenc , of candidates. At no other plao . were the candidates more liberall; , applauded. At no place have mor questions been fired at the sjpeaker nor the parrying and thrusting am the acid replies been more appreciat , ed or returned with more deadly ef . feet. i Tear<* Up Telegram. > When the governor was introduce* Saturday he was asked by H.

Th governor then said: "If that dirt coward who made the threat agains 1 me in the drug store is in the au ' dience, now is the time for him to d ' his work." There was no movemen 1 in the audience, nor any response The governor asserted that some on ! in a nearby drug store had said " t want to hear Gov.

"I'm noi worrying about that," Mr. Jennings replied, and then the crowd applaud:ed the speaker with a marked degree :of enthusiasm. At this juncture the question was asked.
