Manning | thia paper said editorially: "We have long known him to bo a | noan of character, of vision, of sym pathy, of honesty and of reliability. And we believe that if he ls elected governor there will bo in that office ?, man whom every South Carolinian will In time come to love. He ls a man of gentle manners but of un doubted courage; he is a man who ls proud of hie state, proud of the men whoaa olood flows In his veins and be fore he would $s guilty of one Ignoble act aa governor of the state, ho would ley down his life. "There are other splendid men in the race for governor and we will not I discount their ability,'their capability j or their character, but we believe in truth that the man who would most I honor South Carolina is Richard I. Manning of Sumter, who cbould be permitted to come Into his-own^ for he would have been governor long sjg?> It ia with peculiar pleasure, there for?'that we can now all the more unreservedly commend him to the peo ple who read this paper. Mr. Man ning did not receive hla natural strength in the first primary for ma ny of his supporters, not realising his I general strength, were induced to vote for others for whom there was ! a ann timen tal ?ave. We, therefore, feel quite BU re that | Mr. Manning will be the next govern or. Of his opponent, we have no | criticism except that we think Mr. Manning la the bigger, the broader,! the more aultable man. that he can handle problems and propositions of j any magnitude and that he can yeti appreciate the needs of the people. We are for Manning, becauBe He ia a practical and successful I farmer and knows what the farmer | needs. He ts working for better fer tilisera, and for better country con- j dltlone. He is a practical and successful i bualness man and can administer the 1 affairs of the State In the best man ner Ho ia a leroi headed man, of sound Judgment, with, fine administrative ability: he is'the kind of man that geta things done He is is a courageous man and he la an honest man; he does not form Ma views lust to please a crowd, nor doea ha pretend to be one thing to cse maa and another thing to? an other He will enforce the law on the sta ts*- becks without favoring one man j over another, or one town or county j over another An? becauajc, with Mr. Manning as governor South Carolina will proaper, will be law abiding, will be well gov erned and you will never be sorry that you voted for him. MR. FAKTS VOTE l? tabulating the vote for combers of tho general assembly, one of the figure? made by the adding machine waa indistinct and Rufus Fant, Jr., waa recorded aa having something over 3,800 votes when it should have boen 2.800. The "8" and the "3 * are very much alike. .Thc final and official count gtvee Mr. Fant 2,366 votes and he enters the second race. This prom inence ia given to the matter aa the former announcements might have c?s? iii, r?niB I ric aub. m day's. W??k in getting started for the second pri mary. Aaa Hall, Jr., comes into the second primary in place of J. Belton Watson, their voies having been Close. Mr. Hail le a aucoeesful young farmer and baa made a good run for bia fl rat Hm* in politics. OI K LKGIHLATOKN Anderdon munt y han started well upon aelectlng a legislative delega tion. If the three remaining members measure up UH well UR the three that have been cl ?sen, thin county wl!l be among the foremost In the halls of legislation. John T. West of Helton, who headn DM- delegation, I? a graduate of the Citadel academy, has had years of ex perience in teaching behool, in con ducting a hank, and !s now a prosper ous funner. In un all around citi zenship, including integrity, capabil ity ami knowledge of the yorld and its necessities. South Carolina will have no truer son in the general assem bly. A close second In the size of his jvote, la George M. Held of Piedmont. Mr. Reid is n farmer who lives a', noni" and makes his living by hurd labor. He is a sterling, staunch cit izen, a man close to thc great mass of people, and hy his own life of hon est toll, he can Interpret their ideas, theil aspirations, their longings, and he can give them forceful expression, beean e of his own integrity, which will bear waight with his views. S. A. Hu rn s is from the far corner of the county from Mr. Reid-Hock Mills township. He ls the type of mun known as the progressive farm er a u la gradually getting indepen dent of cotton us he is a very success ful ??tock raier. ' He ls s. mau whose boldness of Ideas, determination to put them through, and success ID ex ecution ls Buch that he will be a val [ uable man In the general assembly, valuable for the state at lurge, for ho is a leader, a man of character, of success and of vision. Give us three more such as these. IN APPRECIATION The force of "hello girls" who were on duty on thc night of the election have the thanks of the newspaper men of Anderson, for it was only by their untiring efforts and accomoda tion:! that the returns of the election in tho city of Anderson were secured so readily. At The Intelligencer of fice there were two 'phones that were constantly in operation from 5 p. m., Tuesday until 3 a. m. on Wednesday. Tho work ?of getting the returns in to Anderson pu the night of the elec tion ls colloBsal In Itself, but without the telephone company lt would have been impossible, and there would have been v<V*y few of the Anderson coun ty returns given to the public. The central operators were as oblig ing and accomodatlng as ti.ey could possibly hu je been, and especially In ???iiring the returns from obscure pointa. The motto of the tele phone company which proclaims the company as being the "Finder of Men'f is certainly one which is well word ed and which bas a meaning. They live up to their motto. Manager Beaty, Mr. Switzer and ?Mr. Thompson of the Bell company, alao gavo their time and services, all of which wa? greatly appreciated. EXPRESSING GRATITUDE We have heard men Bay that the State of South Carolina should do something for Messrs Pollock and Jonnlngs. In Greenwood a purse ia being made up to send them a loving cup each. A prominent farmer ot this county 'phoned this paper Thurs day afternoon and offered to start a subscription Hat to raise $1.000 to get some fitting testimonial to show these geutlcmen the appreciation of Anderson county for the work done in the recent campaign. Without consultation ?Ith these gentlemen, we would say that while they might appreciate ' some airaple testimonial of esteem, yet they would prefer for the people to endow scholarships for Anderson college or at Fragar Academy and let these scholarships bear the names of the candidates for senate who stumped the state for the cause which they championed. There is another who should be re membered by the people of UK- state -and that ls Dr. John G. CUnksca'oB. In acknowledging that he had failed to get Into the second race. Dr. Cllnkscales says: "I go down In defeat, but the princi ples for which they and I fought can never die. I find no sting in this de feat. At the bar of my own conscience I find myself acquitted of any unmanly word or deed during tho whole cam paign; and today I feel stronger for the further prosecution of the fight for the children of ray beloved state. In the language of Paul Jones: "We have Just begun the fight" Whatever powens I have I reconsecrate and re dedicate today to the neglected boya and girls of South Carolina. With me lt'a not a question of polit ical office, but the question of a alnara deal to the thousands of Innocent children vrhose cry for light shall yet be heard. To the thousands of friends who believe in me and who believe in the righteousness of the cause for which I fought, but allowed them selvea to ba stampeded at the critical moment, I wish to say that I have ii?iixiug but tut kindest ?eenn??. we disagreed Sn Judgment, but I give them fun credit for being Just as patriotic aa I claim to ba. I have for many of them tlie deepest affection and Khali I endeavor to prove myself worthy of I the confidence many of them assured I me tiny had in me and tin* cause 1 ? represented. "Tlie people of my city and county could not bo shaken from me. They who know-mo bent followed me to thc 1? M dil ch and went in with mo. God bli -' them. Here language falls to ey pren* niy thoughts and feelings. I .shall show them. "I'm not a ?Hiker or a quitter, I am ready to put my shoulder to the wheel and help roll up a big majority for Coaper or Manuln?:. They ure both my friends. At this writing it ia not known whether Cooper or Man ning will be in the second race with Richards. "After a rest of two days I shall be ready to talk compulsory education wherever ami whenever the oppor tunity offers. With full confidence in the integrity of the people of my na tive state and unshaken faith in the ultimate triumph of the cause for which I fight and to which ! have re dedicated all my powers." There is the ring of manliness. Dr. Clinkscales fn in the fight to the finish-not for office, but for a cause. Surely the people of South Carolina will remember tills. oooooooooooooooooooi IO Ol IO ON THE 2.VTII DAY. o O 0 o o o o o o o o o O O O O O O O 0 ') o A few days ago a bard signing Him self W, J. Pricks, sent a little piece of verse tensing the Smithttes. We do not believe in the "I told you so" fel low, or in the unonymous correspond ent, but our mail has brought u repi to Mr. Frick which we think is good natured and apropos1: Say! Brother Fricks, have you heard tho news? (I'll own it's enough to give a fellow tho blues.) And ? know the piety all fled from your soul When you learned the defeat of "Old King Cole." I For this is no guying, we merely hero say, 'Ed Smith was elected on the 25th Day." ELECTION NOTE?. R. H. Alexander, brother of Frank Alexander of thia city, was elected treasurer of Oconee. F H. Shirley,' formerly of Anderson, heads ticket for the legislature in Oconee but will have to rub over. -o Josh Kirven, who figured promi nently in Mr. Pollock's campaign, waa overwhelmingly defeated for the leg islature in Darlington county.

Rogers, Jr., a Bleaseite and a mill operative, is in the second race for the legislature In Spartanburg! county The Spartanburg Herald, | which has been the most bitter anti Biease naper in tlie state, urges bis election. Surely, this is a sign th fact<o:iallsm ts dead. Jesse W. Boyd, of Laurens, ha? the un*>iue distinction of again heading tho legislative ticket. He was elected o-? tho first primary. Two years ago in the second primary there were live j places to be filled and he received all of tho anti and most of the Bleasv* vote because the Blease ticket was short and they all "plumped" their j votes. Boyd received nearly thc total vote of the county, then. Out of over I,soo votes in Laurens county, W. R. Richey. Sr., received ? ? 771?. He ls a brother of R. A. Richey and managed the latter's application for a pardon. o In Cherokee county, N. W. Hardin was left out for the state senate and there is a second race between Rich I mond Stacy and W. L.
