HURRAH FOR THE RECORD!
The Columbia Record has come out
stout and strong against a race meet
in Columbia. Hurrah for The Rec
ord. Such a meet as is contemplated
at Columbia would pr< .e Immense
ly harmful to Columbia and the en
tire state. Races, as carired on by
those who are promoting this meet,
a>\ not such as were held in this
state in years gone by at the old
I Washington Race Course In Charles
ton and elsewhere, bring nothing
but gambling schemes, pure and
simple, and intended to reap the ben
efits of weak and misguided "plung
ers." If these races are held in Co
lumbia, as it seems that they will,
they will prove an abomination to the
people of this state.
Will The State come out now against
this Columbia enterprise? Although
it lias been known for several days
thai the race track gamblers were
contemplating a meet In Columbia,
thai paper has not yet seen fit to come
out against it, in spite of its criticisms
of The News and Courier's weak stand
on the Charleston race track propo
Tho first gun of The Record cam
paign was fired Friday afternoon and
was as follow.;:
Will We Stand for it?
"All that has been said as to the
undesirabllity of the establishment of
a permanent race meet at Charleston
applies with equal force to the estab
lishment of a temporary meet at Co
lumbia. Racing, as at present con
ducted, and as conducted by the in
terests back of the Charleston and the
Columbia propositions, has been driv
en from oii'> State to another, and has
now selected South Carolina as the
last asylum in this country. It is
not creditable to our State that this
is true; It is evidence that an inves
tigation has revealed not only lax
laws but also a laxity of public senti
ment, when the men back of this bus
iness of Ill-repute have concluded
their business is safe in South Caroli
"The municipal authorities of both
Charleston and Columbia are help
less; the proposed track at Charles
ton Is outside the city limits, and the
State fair grounds track here at Co
lumbia is likewise outside the city.
The officials of the South Carolina Ag
ricultural and Mechanical society have
taken the responsibility for leasing
the State fair track for this purpose,
and that fact should be remembered.
"Is it true that a sport which is
outlawed In almost every other state
in the union Is legalized and tolerated
In South Carolina? C.n nothing be
done about it?
What does the attorney general of
^South Carolina say about It". What can
he, and what will he, do about It?"
