tions in various counties, as called for
ki a resolution yesterday. lie disregarded
the matter entirely and this
angered the senate to such an extent
that they refused to adjourn.
Senator Waller opened the fight by
roundly denouncing the position of th<?
go-> *ernor in the matter of appointments
~ 1 ^ ^ ~
and told ot tne ngni in ureeuwuuu,
when the governor disregarded the
recommendation of the delegation and
appointed his own friends to office.
'The situation arose after a committee,
consisting of Senators Appelt, Vi'hartr.ii
a;id Housjh. had waited on tl:-? gov
ernor and be had informed them that
he had nothing more for them. "The
governor says that'he has until March
15 to make the appointments and he
proposes to assert his constitutional
rights," said Senator Wharton, on-? of
the committee. He then informed the
senate that the governor had nothing
more for them.
Waller Scores Ulease.
This opened the fireworks. Senator
Waller arraigned and denounced the
governor for the position he had taken
in this matter, called attention to the
disregarding of the recommendations
which had been made to him by the
Greenwood delegation. He called attention
to that provision in the con
stitution which says that the governor
shall appoint "By and with the advice
and consent of the senate," and to that
part of the cod>e which calls on the
governor to make the appointments
which axe recommended to liim by the
senate while that body is in session.
The Greenwood senator called on
the senate to advise tne governor xo
appoint those to office recommended by
the delegation and put the matter right
square up to him. He said he wanted
the senate to stand up for its rights
and said they would if they had any
cninp art A hjuVkhnnft.
Questioned by Senator Appelt what
would be the remedy in case the governor
refused to appoint those recommended
and confirmed by the senate,
"If the house has spine enough they
will bring the governor up he-re for
impeachment," fairly shouted the
Greenwood senator. f[e asserted the
governor was trampling cn the rights
of the senate and defying the law when
be refused to send the list of appointees
to various county positions to the
senate, as required by the constitu\
tion. Governor Blease was raked fore
and aft and bitterly arraigned in the
speech of Senator Waller.
Beady to Fight Again.
Senator Waller, who was a Confederate
soldier, stacej that he had fought
once and lived on cowpeas and he
could do the same again. He said this
was a crisis and called on everyone
to stand up for the welfare of the
State and assert the rights of the senate.
He denounced a man who attempted
to rise to greatness at the
cost of his country's ruin, plainly referring
to the governor. The vener
aDie senator <nspiayea mucu ieeuug
and spoke plainly and to the point.
At one point in the speech Senator
Strait interrupted Senator Waller and
asked, "If an irresistible body comes in
contact with an immovable body what
would be the result?" to which the
Greenwood senator responded, quick as
a flash: "No one but a fool would
bring two such bodies together," and
Senator Strait took his seat amid
laughter, while th? Greenwood senator
finished his speech.
1 Senator Clifton said if the governor
refused to send his appointees to the
senate for confirmation or rejection by
them lie was disobeying the plain mandates
of the law, and Senator Sullivan
asserted that the terms of the constitution
carrying this,out were mandatory.
Senator Waller closed by calling or
the senate to assert its prerogative
and "put ourselves on record and lei
future history know where we stand.'

On motion of Senator Appelt th
senate then went into executive session
and confirmed the appointment
of L. M. C. Oliveros as master of Aiken.
Right on the heels of this a message
from the governor conveying an
appointment for Union county was received
and confirmed in executive session.
Senator Laney wanted to notify the
house that the senate was ready to adjourn.
"I hope the senate won't adjourn
and let'6 remain and face the
music/' said Senator Waller. Senatoi
Weston made the point that as the
constitution required the governor tc
]av his list of appointments before th(
senate they ought to stay and see thai
the la-w was carried out. On motioi
of Senators Clifton and Christensei
the following resolution was offered:

in the chamber during the roll-c?tt,

and sent it to the governor. If he apj
points any others but these they cam
! not hold office. Th 3 senate by this acj
tion put its stamp of approval on the
' nominations made by the delegati?*?
j and clinched the matter by confirming
(them. Formerly the governor nomi;

by this action the senate confirmed

This resolution was agreed to by the

waited on the governor for inform*

the senate that he had nothing further
for them, and thus disregarded the
resolution reqpesting the infcrmatioa
I as to appointments.

Clifton was trying to got through a
motion to recede from business until
May 28, but President Smith ruled it
out of order on the ground that the
refusal of the house to concur in the
rescinding of the sine die adjournment
resolution made it of non-effect on account
of wording of the resolution.
Promptly Senator Appelt moved that
the clerk of the senate notify the house i
that the senate was ready to adjourn.
Senator Clifton moved to table the motion,
which was done, 13 to 10.

the May recess would be terribly dis- i
appointed, charged unfair treatment,
warmly defended the governor, although
stating that he had never voted
for him, and drew pictures of the results
which were going to befall those
moving for the May recess.
Senator Clifton then offered a resolution
that the senate rescind its part
of the agreement to adjourn sine die
today, which Senator Appelt moved to'

By the same vote the senate agreed
to the Clifton resolution to take a re- j
cess until March 19, having changed
the oiiginal which was May 28. After
more wrangling, rol call, speecnes, eic,
the senate took a recess until 4.30 p.

Columbia, Feb. 29.?"God be with us
till we meet again" was the refrain
during most of the day, and while the
senate may have felt soreness over its
rumpus with, the governor, relative to
his refusing to give it information or
an answer to its note relative to his
appointments tnat naa Deen recommended,
the members of the house left
here with the best of feelings. The
house has really been waiting for several
days to adjourn.
