At the last meeting of the campaign
held Saturday night the 27th ult., Mr.
Blease, my opponent for the senate,
who had the last speech of the cam
paign. declared in very emphatic lan
guage that I had supported a bill to
provide for a process of garnishment
introduced by Mr. D. Lewis Dorroh
of Greenville. I had no opportunity
in the closing hours of the meeting
to explain what motion I had voted
for as the audience was very impa
tient, and I did not think anxious to
listen to any full explanations as to
the effect of different motions which
can be made in the house of repre
I did not think, however, that Mr.
Blease treated me, his opponent, al
together justly in bringing up new
matters at the last meeting of the
campaign, and in the last speech,
when -I did not have a good oppor
tunity to explain the matter intelli

of the election was changed by Sat

Mr. Dorroh's Letter.
Greenville, S. C.. Aug. 31. 1904
Mr. Arthur Kibler, Newberry, S. C.
Dear Kibler: - Yours of the
:9th just received. I take pleasure
in giving you the statement you ask
for, as I clearly remember the trans
action. I solicited your support for
my bill to pro-vide a process of garn
ishment and explained to you the pur
pose of the bill-to provide a quicker
and surer way to get at fraudulently
concealed property and money than
the supplementary procedings already
provided in the code. You would not
agree to support the bill, but readily
promised to hear me further on it
later. I did not get to see you again
While the bill was under considera
tion in the house, R. S. Whaley, of
* Charleston, moved to continue it-a
motion, which, if carried, disposes of
a bill without debate. I was greatly
surprised at Mr. Whaley's mo,tion,
as every member of the house is usy
ually willing to give every bill a fair
showing, and, as the speaker was put
ting the question I called out, "Vote
it down boys and give us a hearing."
You were one of those who voted
against the motion, and, though your
desk was too far from mine for mue
to hear what you said. I distinctly re
member seeing you wave your hand
at Whaley as though remonstrating
with him. Several of those who were
opposed to the bill, like you, voted
against disposing of it without dis
cussion. Mr. Whaley afterwards as
sured me that his motion was not
made out of any desire to be unfair to
me, but to shut off Mr. Holman, who
was loaded with a speech against the
All of this was during the session
You have my full permission to
publish this letter or any part of it.
With best wishes, I am, as ever,
D. Lewis Dorrob.
