"Blackguardism of Blease."
As a Southern gentleman is one
who has too much respect for the
other sex to insult its members Lo
offend their sense of propriety by
language that belongs to the lower
order of humanity and by the em
ployment of references that in their
very nature are gross. Therefore
the outbursts :>f Governor Blease,
of South Carolina, are to be repro
bated as wholly opposed to any
true feeling of consideration for
womankind and as actuated by a
lack of sense of responsibility to
law. This follows from the South
ern Governor's own consignment of
the Constitution to Hades.
Views lik those of Bleaso ad
vance no reform, they promote no
interest, they affect no good. They
are views of men who above al},
other things set their pride of opin
ion and in so doing would accom
plish very much harm were it not
for the fact that the violence of
their language causes a reaction
against their opinions among
As long as Blease's blatherskite
utterances are tolerated, occasions
for lynching will continue and the
record of lynching will blur the
fame of Southern centre?, for such
utterances are destructive of law
and order, and such destruction in
evitably works out wide circles of
