R JOHN BLACK WRITES. I c
fident He Can Prove His In- T
nee-If Attorney General is t
t Going to Have Him Tri- ti
ed, H9 Aski Ifair In- a
Ia Record. .
The Record: I notice in the b
d Courier of the 18th that o:
rrespondent continues to use si
e. I would not say anything n
time if it were not for the fact b
t -is very small in this corres- p
lnt to do .this after I have ask- t1
at justice be done me, that I be p
outed, 'and offered to take the t]
les of proof to a court of justice sl
I acted in good faith in every
saction I had anything to do with
e a ineilber of the state board of
etors. I still ask, why don't they
at me? Why don't they do as the
slature directed them to do? Why a
It the committee and the legisla- r
demand that. the governor and '
ruey general do as they directed it
I Idon't believe the general as- i
bly intended to satisfy some cow- ti
.that is low enough to put me un- C
a heavy peace bond and sneak e
d and try to have a case made C
y the cli'ef of police to nake me n
it $1,000. This man tried to have tl
ondsmen coie off my bond. The o
lature said prosecute me. h
ow this correspondent must un- it
tand one thing: I have nothing k
inst him npersonally or politically, it
if lie has against me, say so. c;
i't use what he knows to be a lie tl
ainst ie. Prove it or be brave t]
ough to come to me or hush. s1
0 The cool, sober thinking people all C
ver the state know this, that if there n
,as anything under the sun against T
0, a suit would have been brought G
ng ago. They know there is noth- sa
g .against me, and the day will a
e when the people of South Car- s1
na will see that I have done noth- t<
g wrong. They must know, too,
at the committee only took such li
stimony as was needed to kill the il
ponsary, one-sided, behind closed c
rs. MrD. Tatum was never asked C
but the Peoria purchase. Why? Be- a
se lie would have told them what ii
ld not have done Tot the legisla- p
'e to hear. They would have I
d to hunt . something else. i
. Hull, of the firm of t1
arke Bros. & Co., was in Columbia e
fore the legislature adjourned. He, b
r. Ray and others said that the a
lender was either a fool or liar. Ev- li
ody knows that Mr. Hull said in g
s affidavit, and knows he offered t
o","buy everything, dollar for dollar. r
Aanybody wanted to disprove this, k
N did they not investigate it? Send n
d get disinterested blenders and see b)
at it was. If spirits were worth ii
.33 to $1.35, why did the committee li
t make inquiry wlhere the spirits I
as and what was the cost of the r
*freight and other costs? This was o
Eplities. They succeeded in killing e
the dispensary and should 'be sat- e
isfied. Senator Tillman is sore over t
defeat and says that it was because ii
;'the legislature elected bad men. Who ni
made Lyon attorney general? Senator r
Tillman told the people not to. Who
Telected Ansel? Senator Tillman told 1'
the people not to. Who killed thme dis
~pensary? Senator Tillman and a few f
~othecrs that I am goinig to have some
A.thing to say about some (day when I
~am no longer under ine Lyon peace
Senator TillmnI, before you have I
ny thing further to say about me,
ook up my record at the state dis
1ensary. I defy you to point out one
*ingle thing wrong. You p)urchased
goods when you wvere in Cincinnati,
Ohio, while governor. Still because
I consummate a deal in Peoria you
condemn me for it. Remember I have C
'been made the seape goat for others.
They have no proof against me in atny
way whatever. I have done no reah
wrong, hut I was (in my absence)
ised to spank you and your dispen- I
,Senator, t hatI same lemgislatunrc was
posed to electing you to serve them
~ger. No opposition in the p)rimary
t fall saved you. Before you run
ir followvman downt ag'ain, take the
uble to look up the record..
n,' conclusion, let me orfer' this : If
ywill not g'ive mte a chance in al
et; o,juist ice, I will put up a
isan.d dollarts ando a hond to pay
