Governor Blease was asked tonight
about the refusal of Governor Brown
to honor the requisition for Felderr.
Governor Blease gave out the follow

"I am not surprised. In fact, it is
what I expected, a political and per
sonal prejudiced decision. You re
member my criticism of 'Little Joe'
and his secretary about the Langdon
Cheves lie, and the fact that the peo

Joe' by defeating him. This is the]
Erst chance that he has had to attempt1
to even up.
"As for the papers not being right,

his one, and made, as this one, strict-]

was stronger than the others, because

Merited the Prize.
Without detracting one iota from
ie bauty in decoration and occu
pancy of the automobiles winning
honorable mention and of others in
the parade Thursday afternoon, as
there was glory enough to go around,.
it is. but simple justice and simply
right to say that Mr. Forrest Summer
was fully entitled to the prize he rre
ceived. That was one time at least
that decision by judges met with uni
versal approbation. The car was most
beautifully festooned to begin with,
and, in addition to the artistic design,
'the young man had complimented his
own sisters by having them occupy
the seats, which of itself was a beau
tiful act and won admiration and com
mendation. This was all the more no
ticeable when it was remembered that
one of the announced features to be
taken into consideration was the oc
cupancy of the various cars by the
young ladies who whuld grace thiean
by their presence. Most young men
would have selected some other fel
low's sisters whom he though.t to be
the prettiest girls, but here was one
young man who thought that his sis
ters were good enough for him. That
his judgment was sound was attested
by the fact that he won the prize, as
the beauty in, occupancy of the car
had to corespond with the beauty in
d'esign of the machine for the special
occasion end in this Instance every
thing blended in perfect harmony. As
words' fitly spoken it was "like apples
of 'gold in pictures of silver."
The Y. W. C. A. of the First Baptist
