POLITiCS AND POLITIOIANS,
Intel eAting GoSSIp and Specul ation About
dandidatz.s and Omce ra.
Mr. August Kohn, the Columbia
correspondent of the News and
Courier, has the following interest
ing chat about State politics and
There io already a great deal 0f
talk in various states about can,
didatea for state offices, and for
monVhs the presidential poslbh.
ties have been seriously consmeiued.
In South Carolina, under te pri
mary systom, the election i irtu
ally hold in August every scond
year. The result of the system is
that there is an everlasting cam
paign going oi. Since the primary
system has been in vogue candi
dates have been grooming as soon
as one campaign closes. The last
contest in this State closed a full
year ago, and the wonder has been
that candidates did not begin their
work for the next contest a week
after the second primary of 1902.
Fortunately, there has been no
campaign this year, and politics
have been allowed to slumber for
a while. .County newspapers have,
however, been writing about candi
dates and issues, and people who
interosted have been talking about
the future of certain mei now
more or less in the public mind.
At the primary last year a prac
tically new set of State o flicials
w1as selected. With the exception
of Treasurer Jennings all the
State house officials were selected
for their first terms last summuer,
and there seums to be an unwrit
ten law that where office holders
attend to their duties they ie given
a second term without opposition.
Tnis custom seemn to apply to
practically all elective offices, and,
therefore, the chances are favora
ble to at least another year of po,
ltical rest. Last year Governor
Heyward had a strong string of
opponents. He will be a candi
date for renomination, and just
now the outlook is that lie will
have no opposition. There was
some talk immediately after the
first primary of last year that Mr.
Martin F. Ansel would be pressed
for governor at the next prunary in
view of the surprising and extra
ordinary race that he made with
the strong field in the race. He
has stated that he will not oppose
Governor Heyward for re-election,
but he has his eye on the govern
or's chair after that.
Nothing has been heard politi
cally from former Congressman
Talbert since the last primary.
The impression now is that if Gov
ernior Heyward's adiinistratLion
continues to run as smoothly and
satisfactorily as at present, he will
have no opposition in 19)04. Then
the doors will open. Mr. Ansel is
already in the field, Mr. Tralbert is
almost certain to be, but the older
men will have to look to their
laurels, as it is rumored that Speak
er Mendel L.. Smith, of Camden,
and Representative T. YTancy WVil
liams, of Lancaster, would make
excelleont gubhernatorial timber, and
the friends of Lieutenant Governor
John T. Sloan naturally expect
himi to be promoted.
WVith this prospect the likeli
hood is there will not be much of
a campaign next year unless some-.
thing happens and that is always
possible. Capt. Jennings may
stand for re-election foir State
treasurer, but lie has before him
the defeat of D)r. Timmerman, who
stood for a third term, and the
cuistom of finding now mni. If
there were any other office for
which Treasurer Jennings might
shift he would stand a better
chanice for a third term. If he
runs there will be opposition.
There is some talk that; Col. Bloyd
will run against Adjutant and In.
spector General Frost. Col. Boyd

Aside from the expenses of living
in Columbia there is the expense
of the primary system. in some
states the legitimate expenses of a
campaign are paid by the state.
In this Stato every candidate has
to ray his own transportation--un

with the hotels, pay for advertis

papers, have supplementary tick
