Committee Met Tuesday--Con
vention Will Be Held Next
Year to Change Our
Primary System
Cole L. Blease was at a meet
ing in Columbia Tuesday after
noon declared the nominee for
governor by the Democratic
state committee and B. R.. Till
man declared the nominee for
United States senator. A second
primary to decide between Lyon
and Peeples for attorney general
was ordered for October 15.
Senator Tillman attended the
session of the committee.
The sub-committee investigat
ing the alleged frauds and irreg
ularities of the primary made
their report this afternoon to
to the full state committee, rec
ommending that the state con
vention of the party be called in
August of next year to make a
new constitution and rules for
primary elections and safe
guard the primary. The com
mittee also recommended legis
lative action along the same
line and seyere punishment for
any one violating the election
laws of the primary. They also
recommended vigorous prosecu
tion for violators of the election
The report showed that not
enough votes had been brought
into question to effect the result
and recommended that the in
vestigation be dropped. There
port goes into detail and presents
many charges of irregularities,
10 such as repeating, voting of
minors, non-residents, aliens
and in some cases negroes.
The matter of calling a state
convention next year to amend
the rules of the party was dis
pusse.d 4t length, but was not
pdopted. A motion to request
the general assembly t~o pass
laws restricting the right to vote
nn. the primary to qualified elect
ors was voted down. A sub
committee to suggest t h e
changes in the constitution and
rules and to report to full state
committep before January 1,
1914. was appointed and perfect
harmony prevailed today.

he Pickens County Messen
of last week says:
'J. S. Barker, of Calhoun, Is
e first man in this state to
ter the general election as a
andidate against a successful
canidate in the prim arv elec
tions. He is trying to get the
v-oters to send him to Congress
instead of Hon. Wyatt Aiken.
"Mr. Barker has had his an
nouncement placed in several
papers in the 3rd district and is
now canvassing the territory
from which he expects to draw
votes. Mr. Barker was former
ly postmaster at Calhoun and is
well known in Pickens county.
His anuouncement. made in
Seneca last Thursday, caused
munch surprise''.

Ite reply to the telling, unanswerable
arguments of Gor. Wilson is that the'

Anent the S. T. P.
The readers of The Sentinel
should read carefully the article
published in last week's issue
on The School Tax Problem, by
"Fair Play," and the one this
week by "Fair Play No. 2."
The school question is one of
general interest and concerns us
all. We are in favor of comn
pulsors education. We believe
it is the only way to lead us out
of the wilderness of illiteracy
into the tields of intelligence, or
The old argument against
compulsory education, that then
the negro would get the advant
age of the white people is with
out foundation, for the negroes
go now all they can, without
being compelled by law.
There is no sense nor justice
in giving to our State schools
large appropriations and letting
our public schools be stinted.
Let our readers discuss the
question fairly and kindly and
see if we can't have bettet
equiped schools in the country
