State of South Carolina,
Message Yo. ~.
To the Honorable, the Members of
the SEate of the State of South Caro
lina-G-.ntlemen: I herewith return to
you. withoat my signature, an act en
titled "An Act to provide for an in
vestigation of the acts and doings of
the State dispe.sary commission and
the acts and doings of the attorney
general in connection therewith, and
of the acts and doings of the commit
tee oC the general assembly appointed
under a concurrent resolution of the
general assembly, dated January 31,
1905, and of the acts and doings of any
other person or persons in any way
connected with the affairs of the State
dispensary and the investigation and
winding up thereof."
I return to you this Act, without my
signature, for the reason that, in my
opinion, under the provisions of the
Act any investigation which would
.have been held would have been en
tirely one-sided and a useless and
unnecessary expense to the State of
South Carolina, and for the further
reason that I decided to remove the
members of the then dispensary wind
ing-up commission and appoint an
entirely new commission, which I did,
and who had the power, under the
then existing law, to do all that was
provided for in this Act to be done
by the committee to be appointed un
der the provisions of this Act.
I have absolutely no objection to the
freest and fullest investigation of all
matters and of all parties connected
with the State dispensary system, and
I will render to you, or to the dispen- (
sary commission, all of the personal,'
qolitical and official information, in
fuence and power, at my command, to
bring absolutely before the public any
and all transactions in regard to the
said State dispensary, or any person
or persons whio have ever been con
nected therewith. Very respectfully,
Cole. L. Blease,

To the Honorable, the Meinbers of!
the Senate of the State of South Caro
lina-Gentlemen: I herewith, return
to you, without my signature, an Act
entitled "An Act relating to Newber
Iry county," for the following reasons:
First. Because the Act is not pro
perly titled. i nerrswt
Second. Because i nefrswt
thealuties of the county commission
ers as now constituted in said county.
Third. pecause it is in violation of
the constitution, Section XVII, Article
III, Constitution of 1895, which pro
"Section 17. Every Act or resolu-.
'tion having the force of law shall re
1ate to but one subject, and that shall
Sbe expressed in the title."
lIn that it is proposed to be an Act
~to provide for bond inspectors in the
county of Newberry, while Section 4
thereof provides that, immediately af
ter the approval of the Act, the sheriff
of Newberry county shall appoint spe
cial deputy sheriffs for the term ofI
'to years, and provides their salaries
and duties, among which are the pa
:frolling and policing of the county,
and to prevent or detect and prosecute
for the violation of the criminal laws,I
etc., this being in clear violation of
the constitution, which provides that
no Act relate to but one subject. And
further, because the said deputies
sbhaH be subject to removal by the!
sheriff, for cause, and, -in my opinion,
air officers commissioned by the gov-,
ernor, who are not elected by the'
people, should be under the direct
control of the governor and should be
subject to remova.l by him only. Very I

Commission Inspects Women's Mfonu
ment-Gen. Walker's State
Columbia, Jan. 5.-The commission
or the women's monument met this
aorning and visited and inspected the
monument. It gives eminent satisfac-I
ion and was received from the dis
~inguished artist, Mr. Ruckstuhl. The
late of the unveiling was fixed for1
'hursday, April 11, as it was thought
best not to attempt an open air func
ion during the winter months.I
Gen. C. Irvine Walker, chairman of
Lhe commission, in reply to a question,
aid; "You. ask about the invitations
Lo the unveiling ceremonies. Well~
the commission considered this mat
er m'ost carefully at two meetings
mnd decided that the occasion should
be, so far as they were able to make
it, absolutely free of any political
bearings. They desired that it should~
be ne where all the people and the
-eterans, their sons and daughters'
should unite in the most perfect har
rony and without a tittle of political
Siscord to mar its peace and sacred-!
ness. .So, in sending out the invita
ions, they carefully av'oided sending
any to merabers .of the legislature,
State officials, the judiciary or even to
any of the distinguished citizens of
our State. Such would practically all
be included, individually, either in the
class of donors to the fund, of veter
ans or sons of veterans. The only
special invitations issued in the State
were to the members of the p-ress.
Special invitations were sent to every
camp of veterans and every chapter
of Sons and Daughters, to colleges,
schools and to the National Guard,
and also to some distinguished people
outside the State. A general invita
tion was extended to all donors to the
fund and to the people at large.
"Furthermore, in any distribution
of invitations, it., is very difficult to
decide to whom to send them. Where
to draw the line without giving offence
was too hard a proposition for the
commission. So actual conditions tal
lied exactly with the determination to
avoid politics and made more proper
general invitation to all our people
and specific invitations only to the
veterans and their sons and daugh
ters, who were to give and to receive
the monument, and who were the of
ficial representatives of the cause, to
which our heroic women gave their
devoted love, and to the youths of till
schools and colleges and the young
men of the National Guard, whom the
commission thought should imbibe the
sacred truths of the right ousniess of
that cause and the heroism of the
Women of the Coufederacy."
RICHESON E1ARS SENTENCE.
Preacher-Murderer Pleads as Desert
ed of Hope-To Appeal for
Boston, Jan. 9.-With the appear
ance of a man who had abandoned allI
hope of life, the Rev. Clarence V. T.
Richeson stood today at the bar of
justice, declared his guilt of the pre
meditated murder of his former sweet
heart, Avis Linnell, and without a
tremor heard Judge Sanderson sen
tence him to death in the electric chair
during the week beginning May 19.
While displaying remarkable stoicism
the young Virginian appeared to those
who crowded the little room, as if he
were conducting his own funeral.
To the half dozen questions which
Judge Sanderson put to Richeson he
answered without the slightest emo
tion, always in the affirmative.
Richeson's counsel declared after
the proceedings that an appeal for
executive clemency would follow soon
and that every effort would be made
to obtain life imprisonment as the
As Richeson was called to the bar
Clerk Manning said: "Clarence V. T.
Richesop, this indictment charges you
with murder an first degree. On No
vember 13 you pleaded not guilty. Doi
you desire to retract that pleading?"
"Yes, sir," replied Richeson.
"What say you to the indictment?"
asked the clerk.
"Guilty," was the reply, without a
change in tone.
"The only penalty provided by law,"
said Judge Sanderson, "for murder in
the *first degree is death. Have you
peaded guilty of murder in the first
degree, after consideration and with
the full knowledge and understanding1
of the nature and effect of such a
"Is the plea made by you free and
voluntary?" continued the judge.
"Did you consult counsel with ref
arence to the nature of the off ense
and the plea?"
Again came the simple, "Yes, sir."
After the district attorney had read
Richeson's confession, which wast
made a part of the record, Judge San
derson asked:- i
"Clarence V. T. Richeson, have you I
anything to say why sentence of
death should not be passed upon you?"
The young man apparently swallow- I
ed a hard lump in his ,throat, but with
:t even a shadow across his face,[
"No, sir; nothing further than I
Rising in his seat, Judge Sanderson
pronounced the death penalty, ending'
with the impressive words "and may
God in his inflinite goodness have
mercy upon your soul."
