fact that today is Washington's birth

sembly will meet. The house will re
convene at 10 o'clock this morning

The present session of the general

Governor Approves Warehouse Act.
Gov. Blease sent to the house and
senate Wednesday night a special mes
sage containing some information and
advice about the act to establish a
State system of cotton warehouses
which he has approved.
Th special message follows:
"To the Honaorable, the Members of
the General Asembly of the State of'
6U t h 2,ai411hia
"Gtentlemn2: I beg to inform your
honorable bodi s that I have approved
the act entitled 'An act to create and
operate a State warehouse system for 1
storing cotton and other commodities.'
"After a careful and as thoughtful
consideration as I can give this act,
I have serious and grave doubt of its
constitutionality, or that it will prove
as effective as it is thought; but, in
view of the decided opinion, as ex
pressed by the large number of your
bodies voting for it, I deem it proper
to waive my views as to its doubtful
constitutionality and effectiveness to
give the relief to and promote the good
of our cotton industry, and hope that
it may be the Means of saving the far
mers of this State from the evils and
wrongs which the speculators in our
largest staple crop have done, as well
as the injury which menaces them
from the cotton mill mergers in our
State, which have been formed within
the last year and which are still going
on. It may, I trust, also be the in-f
strument in the hands of the farmers
to relieve them from the oppression
which they have endured from the al
lowance of the existence of certain
monopolies, trusts -and combinations y

to suppress or prevent these opera

our people, it will be welcomed by f

and condition of the State, it is but It

from the postoffice department and
not from the White House.
A prominent member of the faction
with which Mr. Capers is at odds, said
yesterday that the efforts of the latter
were being wasted, and that they
would have no effect. Mr. Capers, he
said, was desirous of retaining his
place as national committeeman, and
knowing that he had lost out with the
leaders of the party, is now trying
desperately to bring about a split in
the ranks. Capers, he said, had run
his- political course, was ignored by
the Republican leaders in Washington
and would undoubtedly be dropped as
national committeeman after the Chi
cago conviention, United States Mar
shal Adams, who is a candidate for the
place, being elected in his stead.
Mr. Caper's letter, which was mailed
in Washington, is as follows:
"The letter of Major Blalock, as
State chairman, issued on the 25th of
January, urged the Republicans of the
State to pay no attention to the call
issued by what is claimed to be an
executive committee, of which J. W.
Tolbert is recorded as chairman, and
which seems to be moved in its actions
by the three officeholders, Postmaster
"ris, Uni.ted States Marshal Adams
and District Attorney Cochran, who
operate no doubt by orders directly
from the postoffice department in
Washington, not from the White
"The question as to who is to be
nominated for president can only be
decided by the congressional district
conventions and by the State conven
tion of the regular organization, which
will probably be held some time in the
onth of April.
"Therefore, it is the duty of all Re
publicans to use every proper means
to upset the proposed Tolbert meeting
an the 29th of this month, and to up
set. it by absolutely ignoring it. The
Ralock faction is called "Lilly White"
