The platform of Senator McLaurii
' as published lu thts paper Sunday ii
a very tactful paper, but we contest

this We saw in his manifesto noth
lng of several important matters tha

if a certain bill with reference V

be tho issue, why not lot the autho
i of that bill enter thc race for govern
Senator McLaprin admits thc nee
efsity io/ *ompattory school laws, bu
doubts thc expediency. Tho bill be
fore thc legislature was a local optlo
measure, to permit school districts t
voto on that for themselves.
In thc matter of protecting the pr
mario?, he has about the same view
ls everybody else. No decent man' 1
tho state wishes anything but an hoi
est election and an honest count. Th
tlons is the only argument on thi
matter of form in holding the . cle<

The plainer the requirements th
stronger the system. No man shoul
bc denied the right to vote if he is
citizen. No allens should bc allowe
to vote. Vote buyers should be pt
on the cbalngang.
Senator McLsuris has the tie!
alone on tho warehouse proposition
He is tho originator and champio
of his bill, onco made a law over tl
governor's voto and the governor
objection was later sustained by it
courts. Tile n'?V* bill ls framed t

It IK possible for candidates to get

ing so much 111 feeling, and we trust
that in the campaign thia summer
there will he Buch a splendid feeling
among the people that the state of
South Carolina Will be proud of thc
men seeking ofllcc.
But if the people of South Carolina
are to be treated to fussing and strife,
it were better to cut out the meetings.
Let the people study the meir, their
merit*, their Halms, their records,
their possibilities. Do not accept
them or reject them upon one thing,
hut learn all that you can about their
lives their characters, their manhood.
Accept no one hastily, but decide
calmly which of the candidates for]
many offices are the men who will do
the most good and thc men. WJKT have
the most good in them..
We seo no harm in having campaign
meetings if they can be so arranged
as to give the people information and
an insight into tho true personality of
thc men seeking to represent them.
But if lt comes to campaign meetings
where candidates are "howled down"
and not permitted to speak, we believe
that the party would be justified in
calling off all further engagements of
the campaign speakers. Let's have
