The candidates for Iunited Stat
1ienator met in forensic display at ti
theatre i Columbia on the 17th insl
and not more than five hundred pa,
ple out of 2.5,000 population wei
present during the meeting, which ii
eluded a large number of la" ies, mari
of them the lea lers of social life i
the capital, who were occupying ti:
boxes, the parquette, (ress circle an
balcony. The theatrical scenery ret
resented a beautiful grove, in front c
the grounds of a picturesque ICuropea
palace, the terracet grounds covere
with roses and statuary.
E'ach speaker was given the closef
attention and was generously al:
plauded. Mr. lenderson's referenc
to the Booker Washington inciden
produced an outburst of applause
The speakers touched on the great no
tional issues, shipl) subsidy, isthmian ca
nal, so-called " expansion," the Phil
ippines, and so on.
There were no striking features o
the speech'es, most of them being ver:
like those delivered in the preliminarl
campaign last summer, save for tih
speech of 'Ex-Uovernor .John Garq
Evans, who told plainly why he wa

ladies for their attendance. lie then
warned all present that no disorder
would be allowed and said, in introduc.
ing the candidates, he would simply
announce the speaker.s
Mr. L,atimer was the first speaker,
and at the outset he threw some bu
qluets at Columbia, speaking of hem
great progress and the activity in
buildings, and predicted a greatet
pr.gress In the future. He said that
last summer there was an issue, but
thatt does not now exist and all the
aspirants are agreed to what they be
lieve to be the best policy for the gov
ernlent. There are no iasues in
volved between them and it will be
purely a matter of personal choice
among voters, and said that lie had a
ten years' record in Congress upon
which he would stand or fall. lie de
clared the war in the Philippine is
lands had ,been conducted in cruelty
and inhumanity. Our trade with the
islands only amounts to $30,000,00(1
per year, and every other civilhzed pow.
er has the same trailing privileges. We
have already spent nearly $500,000,O0U
on the islands, and are spending near
ly $(i0,000,000 yea'"' on them yet, and
still there are people who believe that
we should stay there and murder the
Filipinos, who ought to be inde
pendent. It is said that we ought tc
Christianize the people, but nowlhler
in the Bible can be foundt a sentence
requiring that religion should b(
spread by the sword. If we hold thi(
islands, next we will t,ant to conquel
amnd finally annex all Asia. Becausi
we are taking t.he same steps the Rb
mans took and eventually he p)redicte(

IIn closing, he congratulated Colh
N bia on its grand advance within the pa
live or six years. lie spoke of his f
,l miliarity with Columbia and her tria
and tribulations and referred to It
presence in Columbia in 1870 whc
the great 1lampton redeemed lt
" State. IIe declared the people of Ck
lunbia had a sacred trust committe
es to; them--the remains of the grandel
e man of the country, Wade IIamlptorl
(Cheers and applause.)
Col. George Jlohnstone made a pa
'- thetic reference in the opening to
'e Confederate soldier boy who caimo int
I- Columbia soon after Sherman's van
y dals left, and had been a witness o
t that terrible dlevastat,ion which hai
e been visitedl upon the cit,y. From tha
d (lay lhe had determined to aid th,
- stricken inhabitants in regaining thei
f homes and property. As time wen
11 on and he had larger opportunities h
Ii knew of nothing that he had domc
which was not to the interest of Colun
t bia. 11e had voted for the college,
- for the canal and in other matters for
D the advancement, of this city, and h
rejoiced with her people at the marvel
Ois development. Mr. Johnstone was
quite liberally applauded. lie then
- proceeded to discuss the isthnrian
- eanal, which he favored, arguing that
it would build up the South Atilantic
ports. The completion of that canal
would give the control of the Asiatic
trade, for every railroad line from the
interior would be compelled by coin
petition to do business throuclh South
Atlantic ports. Build that canal and we
will not have to ask for the investment
of Northern capital, for it must come.
Where is Columbia in this ma'ter ?
If the canal is built the Congaree will
become a necessity and we will have
capital coining here to invest and ask
to be allowed to participate in our
prosperity. The improvement in
river navigation will be hound to fol
low. As to the ship subsidy, he op.
posed it, on the ground that the sub
sidized ships would still run to the
ports noith of us in order to keep the
trade in that section, and would thus
still keep us in financial subserviency.
Our mission in the P'hilippines
should be one of peace and liberty and
not of despotism. In concluding he
said that inl our ,rosperity now it is
easily seen that in the near future this
city will contain 100,000 inhabitants,
with her business increased a hundred
fold. In this increased prosperity he
would rejoice with her people.
Col. William E'lliott made a vigor
ois speech, touching his own record,
and declaring against the ship subsidy.
Ile had signed the pledge and would
heartily support the platform of the
party. lie complimented the people
of Columbia greatly on the material
progress nade in the city. IIe re
ferred to the fact that he had once in
a while taken a trip down the Congaree
and he was struck with the adaptability
of the river for navigation. He went
somewhat into the history of the at
tempts to inaugurate a boat line on tl
river and the physical and other ob
structions to successfully carry out the
the idea. IIe next took up the splen
did advantages of the South and of
this State especially. le also spoke
of his great interest in the river and
harbor bill and showed what great
benefit it brought to people living in
coatt ports and cities on the rivers.
Water transportation in many instances
is the only one available. Ile declared
that since boyhood he had always done
iis dut,y to his State, mn war and in
peace, and he had succeeded in ridding
t,he coast of negro dlominiation. Look
at the condition of the coast, now in
comparison to what it was t,wenty
years ago.
Mr. Hlemphill was the next, speaker,
and humorously referred in the outset
t.o the bouquet,s thrown at, the ladies,
saying that lie thought it was conceded
that the Columbia ladies were the pich
.of the flock of the country, andl that
I Columbia was prosperous, and that, the
I only drawback to New York was its
I dlistance from Columbia. lie treated
-the sUbjects of expansion, retentioi
t of the Philippines, tariff and trusts in
I a most entertamning manner, saying
.that following t,he theory underlying
e these questions if adlopted1 wouldl lea<
g us away from the timne-hionoredl pri n
0 ciples of the D)emocracy.

lo Chairman J1. M. Enight called til
ad meeting to ordeor and introduced tL:
hie speakers, who addressed about 30
iw people.
Lb Mr. M. F. Ansel was first intr
ic- duced, andl expressed his leasuire
hre meeting friends in Sumter. It, wi
not the first time, he said, that Smr
lo- ter had fired the first gun. There w
an something prophetic, he hoped, in 11
lie making the first speech, HIe hoped ti:
,as meant first votes hero and first in ti
ost race for Governor. Mr. Ansel said .

mm- many interesting isnnes befre. the p
st ple. le lati always been in favor o
,. the primary system.
Is Mr. Ansel stated that he would a!.
is ways favor appropriation.3 for the gal
n laut old Confederate soldiers. lie re.
,o ferred to the true dignity of labor, and
. was in favor of the best andi highest
(I educational advantages to be given to
it the citizens of our State. lie is an ad
vocate of education, which makes bet
ter citizens of us all; the burn ug, imi
- portant question of the day, a living
a question. lie would not d1o a single
a thing to any institution that would pre
vent any boy or girl from getting an
f education. This is a duty we owe to
the coiing generation, to ourselves
t and to our country.
AMr. Ansel then showed our duty in
r caring for the brave old soldiers of
L the Confederacy at length. lie spoke
heartily in favor of good roads, show.
ing the real meaning of this all im
portant question. lie cited instances
showing how this work could easily be
done on the instalment plan. (Good
schools, where children can be taught;
good roads, where we can trot up and
down hill, means very much,
lie was in favor of the dispensary
law, and in favor of enforcing this law.
So with the law regarding trusts --let
laws he just to all and let them be en
forced. He does not believe all the
great men lived in the past. This is
the great, age, because It is the reading
age. If elected, he would discharge
his duty in the fear of no mai.
Capt. I ). C. lleyward was next in
troduced and was greeted with ap
plause. lie camo here to make friends
and was glad to see ,hat he had them.
lie was born near Sumter. lie de.
sired to say to the people of South
Carolina that he was iunning for this
ot!ice on his merits. 1le witted it in
no other way. Ide has the kindest
feelng for each oppouet. The peo
ple demanded a clean, straight can
paign. Ile was glad that he saw a
united people. ''he conunon develop
ment of our great and growing inter.
ests was the task to continue to com
pletion. From time to time the pec+
plc of South Carolina have expresse<i
themselves upon the (dispensary law.
lie regarded this as a settled fact and
properly coducted as the best solution
of the liquor question. lie compre
hensively and brielly reviewed the past
industrial problems of the South, and
these should now be discussed. We
of this party should discuss State is
sues. I am a D)emocrat; indorse State
and national platforms.
Mr. IIeyward then discussed the
child labor in factories. lie is opposed
to children working in factories. Next
session of Legislature should enact
such a law, gradual in its operation, as
to age. The speaker gave thoughtful
reasons for this and was not, by any
means, unmindful of the rights and
interests of the factory owner or the
Tile most important question before
the people of South Carohina was the
subject of education, lie was in fa
vor of maintaining the higher educa
tional interests, but the great question
was common and public schools.
Mr. leyward showed he had been
one of the earliest movers in the sub
ject of good roads and was still decid
edly in favor of this great need. It
was, in every one of its numerous be
neticent aspects.--- educationally, so
cially, industrially, religiously- --t was
of sp)ecml importance. Goodl roads
should1( also bring the plel of the
town and count,ry together. A vital
question is drainage of swamp andl
lowlands. lIe referred to the hill pr'e
sented to the last Legislature on this
subject, and showed that t.his quest,ion

Congressman W. ,J asper Tal bert,
followed in a speech t,hat was largely
dlevoted to a vigoi'ous (denunlciation of
the trusts, lIe also paid his~ respects
to " C.omumercial I )eimocracy,"' and
vigorously dleniounced any man or men
who would come among us in the dis
guise of a l)emocrat and preach lte
publih)icanismi and t,hie (doctrines fost,ered
by trusts and( mnopjolies. IIe would
have nothmng to say about our junior
I Senator for lie is dlead p)olitically. iIe
favored liberal suipport of t,he colleges
1 andl the upbmiding of common schools.
- The tax which white men pay should
go to support, white schools and taxes
.Paid by ne~groes should go to support
schools for negroes. The dlispenisary
.law was the best poss5ible solut,ion of
the liquor question, le believed it
should be enforced in Charlest,on,
Columbia and Sumter and14 all ot,her
Lieuteuant Governor Tillman is out,
to tauke the scalp of Col. Talbert.
Speaking .iiedliately alt.er himi, li
81a1( that Col. TPalbei't was evidlently a
- candiidatte for Unit.ed Stat,es Seiiator,
e judging from the way he went on
about the trust,s. lIut, he would like
to know, and so would the peopile, why
Col. Tlalbert left the halls of Congress,
a where he might, do some good, and of
1,. his own volition came dIown here
e seeking the otice lie exp)ects to get.
e The greater part of his speech was
S(levoted t,o explanations of his ruling
in the Senat,e on the Kibler bill and
~. his subsequent exposure by The State
t newspaper. le charged 10111,01

If anyone else was concerned I

No, it wasn't the stomuach. it was I
higher up where the left ventricle of
the heart had got walled in and the
trouble was what the doetor culls the
angmna let;toria, and mily left arm was
helpless. For two days and nights I
suffordc more of real agony tlhatn I ever
suffered in all my ife. Our docto boy
was here from Florida, and knew ex
actly what was the matt,r, and I took
all his medicine, but, got, little relief,
and I was willing to die to get out of
pain. Finally he gave me torphine
in both arms and I weut off to sleep
and rest. Those morphine dreams and
visions are always a miracle to me. I
thought that in his talk about, my
trouble he called it angelina pectoris,
for I don'I. hear well 1ow, and I got the
refrain ou my min<d, that pretty verse
from Goldsmith's "c Ilermtit:"
"Turn, Angelina-ever dear -
My charmer turn to see,
Thine own, thine long-lost William here,
Restored to heaven and thee."
Ever and anon I could hear it, raiii
ing on the tin roof, but it didn't rain a
drop. All night long I wts murmur
ing " Turn, Angelina, ever dear." I
couldn't stop it nor think of anything
else to say, but I wasn't restored-next
day I got so:ue better and as I hadn't
taken any nourishment for three or four
days I craved something acid, and like a
foohli boy eat, ft 81ma1l1 piece of huckle
berry pie foi supper, which they tol
me not to do. That set the dogs to
barking about mdnight and set me
back just where I had been, and the

There is comfort in the knowledge so

wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the

necessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
