A woman up in New England is

"Why," asks the Lr.ke City News,
"move earth and get a man convicted
and a good sentence imposed and
then conclude he was innocent or
far too heavily sentenced? It is al
most an epidemic, of miscarriage of
justice against the defendants and
yet we have be?n beratin.7 juries for
not convicting." Our co-temporary
is not alcne in its failure to under
stand why judges recommend pardon
in so many cases.

The Ware Shoals Matter.
The Columbia Record says:
"The Anderson Da ly Mail denomi
nates as "fake journalism'' the story
I published in some of the South Caro
lina papers that the employes of the
Ware Shoals mill tad demanded a
holiday on the occas.'on of Governor
Blease's speech at that place, and the
Orangeburg Times and Democrat re
fers to the story as "'a lie out of the
?whole cloth." Other papers have had
similar comments. It will be well to
proceed a little more cautiously in
the matter of de mcing a story
: published, in a repu. ble newspaper,
written by a reputable newspaper
man, whose chief asset in his profes
sion is his reputation for truth and
"As for The Daily Record, this
newspaper has no interest in the
matter. The story was not published
in this paper. But we are free to
say that we have since read a letter
written by one of the most reliable
and most prominent business men of
Columbia, confirming- the "tip" which
he gave to the reporter who wrote
the stor>\ This gentleman was the
reporter's* authority for the story,
and the gentleman himself received
his information personally from an
official who was assuredly authorized
to speak for the Ware Shoals mill
company. The story did not ema
nate from the governor nor any of
We never intended a what we
said about the Ware Shoa's Manu
facturing Company's refusing to give
their employees an opportunity to
hear Gov. Blease speak at the picnic
on the 18th instant to intimate that
the reporter who wota the story or
the newspaper that first published it
"told a lie out of the whole cloth."
We were satisfied that the reporter
who first wrote the paragraph had
been told that what he wrote was
true, but we believed he had been
deceived by some one, and it still
has that appearance to us.
The Record say? it has "read a
letter written .by one of the most
reliable and most prominent business
men of Columbia, confirming the tip
which he gave to the reporter who
wrote the story." This gentleman
was the reporter'^ authority for the
story, and The Record says "the gen
tleman himself received his informa
tion personally from an official who
was assuredly authorized to speak for
the Ware Shoals Manufacturing
Company.'' This statement com
pletely exonerate:? the reporter, but
it does not agree with a statement
made by the assistant treasurer of
He says "the help did not apply
*to us for a day off; in fact, they did
not even mention the matter to our
superintendent. We decided to give
all our employees holiday on the 18th
and posted a notice to that effect on
May 1, 1911, and the act was of our
own free will and accord." Both of
these statements cannot be true.
Either the informant of the Colum
bia business man or the assistant
treasurer of the company has slipped
a cog in some way or other in their
statements. It ought to be an easy
matter to show whioh is correct.
The assistant treasurer says the
notice of a holiday on the day that
Governor Blease was to speak was
posted on May 1, seventeen days be
fore the Governor was to speak. If
this is not true it is easily proven
false, as the employees of the mill
must know whether such a notice
was posted or not. In the face of
the above statement, it seems to us
incumbent on the informant of the
merchant Who gave the "tip" to the
reporter to make good his statement
or confess that be had given out a
statement that he can't substantiate.
Want to Whitewash Him Again.
It is plain that the friends of Sen
ator Lorlmer in the United States
Senate are trying hard to get his
case in the hands of a whitewash
'?ommibtee should it bo reopened,
which now seems inevitable. In
the fact of the overwhelming* public
opinion it is hardly likely that any
considerable number of senators
would oppose the reopening of the
case. That feature of the matter
seems to be settled. Even Lorimer's
friends sees that he must be investi
gated by the Senate again.
His standpat supporters in both
parties want thi* investigation to be
conducted by his friends. They want
him committed again to the tender
mercies of the committee on priv
ileges and elections. The committee
is composed of Senators Dillingham,
Gamble, Heyburn, Clapp, Sutherland,
Bradley, Jones, Oliver and Kenyon,
republicans; Bailey, Paynter, John
ston, Fletcher, Hern and Lee, demo
crats. Of this i umber, Dillingham,
Gamble, Heyburn, Sutherland, Brad
ley, Jones Oliver, Bailey, Paynter,
Johnson and Fletcher are standpat
ters, friendly to Lorimer. Clapp.
Kenyon, Kern and Lea are progres
The LaFolIetto resolution which is
now up for consideration in the sen
ate, names a special commtitee,
Works of California, McLean of Con
necticut, Townsend of Michigan,
Kern of Indiana and Pomeren^ of
Ohio. One progressive Republican
and two standp-.tters, ar.d two Dem
ocrats. Mr. LaT,"o!lette urges the ne
cessity of a committe? of new mem
bers because the old members have
all voted on tae question and are
on record either as Lorimer partis
ans or in favor of ousting him.
If the resolution is sent to the
committee on -privileges and elections
?and it appears likely that it will
be because it will, receive the support
of reactionary democrats and republi
cans alike?Mr. Lorimer will be in
vestigated ,by a friendly committee.
That is the meaning of the contest
now before the senate. The Spar
tanburg Journal1 says in addition to
the case being tried by a committee
of Lorimer supjvorters, a vote to send
it to the committee on privileges and
elections will mean, in all probability
the delaying of action In the case un
til late into the regular session next
winter, while the progressives are
urging a speedy investigation and an
l early vote.
