Dr. J. L. Mann, formerly of Abbe
ville, son of Rev. Coke D. Munu, and
recently superintendent of the city
schoolB of Florence for years and
with great succoss, is undergoing Im
peachment proceedings at Greens
boro, X. C., where he is superinten

politics found its way into the Mann
impeachment proceedings this after
noon when counsel for the petitioners
tor removal sought to discredit or
disconcert witnesses from Florence
by forcing the declaration that they
supported Blease for governor. The
incident came at the beginning of the
cross-examination of Dr. F. P. Cov
ington, a former member of the Flor
ence school board and a prominent cit
izen of that place. Dr. Covington
came here with F. A. Barringer, a
banker and merchant of Florence, to
testify to the high standing of Dr.
Mann in Florence and South Carolina
as a teacher, scholar, honest and
upright Christian gentleman.

When he was turned over to the
counsel of the prosecution. Attorney
David Stern said: "Doctor, we would
like to know whether you are a
Bleasite or Jonesite."
"I'll answer in the same spirit,"
shot back the doctor, his eyes flash
ing and his arm going up in an em
phatic gesture. "If you knew me I
would consider an assertion or in
sinuation that I was a Bleasite an
insult. No man dares make such an
accusation on South Carolina soil."
At other stages laughs were brought
out by the doctor's reference to the
governor of South Carolina. Mr. Bar
ringer, too, declared that he was a
Jonesite. He said ho was a merchant
in Florence and that his competitor
was for Blease. The result is that
the competitor gets his trade from
people who support Blease while he
gets the Jones supporters. Both, he

The two South Carolina witnesses
inserted their evidence in the records
with the direct examination of Dr.
Mann being called that they might
leave the city on an afternoon train.
After they had testified Dr. Mann
came back to the stand and when ad
journment was taken at 5 his coun
sel stated that they had concluded
the direct examination. His cross
examination will begin at 9:30 tomor

that athletic stunts, which were fea

were prejudical to the interests of
the schools, while healthful athletics
were of advantage.
He said when he came to Greens

spirit, while the intellectual standard
was low. He found the Greensboro
