We find the following quotation
from a statement made by Senator
Hall, of Cherokee county, in regard to
the appointment made by the governor
of supervisors of registration for
/iAnnlr T f fi AATVIC tVlQf nAVPfTl Af 1
lua l tuuiil/j. 11 WWI
Blease did not appoint the men recommended
by the senator, though he
says the appointees are good men.
Then Senator Hall undertakes to say
what the law requires, as follows:
"The law requires the governor to appoint
the supervisors by and with the
consent of the senate, if in session,
and if not in session, then the apportment
to be made subject to the j
consent of the senate, if in session.,
Although I sent in the names of Mit-:
chell, Harris and Jones long before i
the senate adjourned, so that the gov-j
ernor could make a legal appointment |
? - . - :
that would be confirmed by the senate, |
yet the governor deliberately waited j
until the senate adjourned so that he i
could make a recess appointment, and
get in men not recommended.
"Under the law, the old members j
hold over until their successors are;
duly appointed and qualified. The'
new members are not duly appointed j
and can not be until the senate con- i
firms their appointment."
We have been under the impression
that Senator Hall was a good lawyer, |
and sufficiently prominent as a law-!
yer to oe mentioned in connection
with the judgship in his circuit, and j
we quote this, wondering if he really :
believes that his statement is a prop-,
er interpretation of the law. The
statute does say that these appoint-1
ments must be made "with the consent
of the senate, if in session," but it
does not say that "and if not in session,
then the appointments must be made j
subject to the consent of the senate, |
if in session," but on the contrary the;
law says, "If not in session subject
to its approval at its next session."'
The law would be absurd if it said, as
Mr. Hall states it. "and if not in ses-,
sion, then the appointment to be made I
subject to the consent of the senate,;
if in session."
Therefore, it seems very clear to us'
that as the governor had the right un-l
der the law to make the appointments :
by the 15th of March, and did not
make them until the senate adjourned,
that the appointments are legal
and that the appointees are duly appointed.
subject, of course, to the ap- j
proval of the senate at its next ses- j
It is passing strange how partisan
politics can warp the judgment of
good lawyers and cause them to make
statements that are almost absurd.
We do not mean by this to say that
we endorse or condemn the action of
Governor Blease in the matter of;
these appointments, but certainly if
we can understand the English language,
he is acting within the statute
as it is written.

There has been a good deal of com- j
ment about Governor Blease's pay- j
ments to Leon M. Green from his con-j
tingenr fund and to th-e Rev. Mr. I
Creighton from his law and order
fund. Most of the comment has been
in the nature of criticism and some
of this criticism came before there was
any information as to what the payments
had be>?u made for. It is a fact
that Mr. Gr^en used in his report
quite a lot of matter that had been
prepared by Mr. Watson, and to this
extent Mr. Green was being paid for
work that had already b-een done. As
to what original initiatory work Mr.
~ "U ~ ^ TIT* r? r? rvt !

know; but somehow we have never
been very much impressed with all
this talk that has been going on about
Given. He used to be regarded as a j
bright, able, high-principled young j
man and we are not inclined to think
that he has undergone any change of
character. As to what the nature of j
Mr. Creighton's work might be we j
have no definite information. If there j
was no way to find out anything on
the subject, we might feel like quarreling
a few; but since the governor
onnnnnpps that anvbodv can see the'
reports on file in his office, it occurs
to us that we might withhold criticism
until somebody has taken a look. We
are not unmindful of the fact that
other governors have found it desirable
to have recourse to confidential
agents, and whether we like Mr.
Blease or not we can not see why he
is not entitled to the same rights as j
other governors.?Yorkville Enquirer.
The above from the Yorkville En
quirer is a vex~y seusiuic auu ,
servative view to take. So far as our j
information goes, Mr. Green was looked
upon as a very capable newspaper
man until h? was appointed a colonel:
on Governor Blease's staff. In fact, j
we think the Columbia State and the
News and Courier both considered him!
in all respects a first-class newspaper j
man. It is unfortunate that partisan'
politics would lead metropolitan daily
newspapers to such extremes as they j
have gone in this matter.
We do not know of the work which
Hoon anri hem? done by Mr.
AJLCiO WVV1A Wiiu -w 0
Green and Mr. Credghton, but as Gov- j
ernor Blease states, the reports are
on file in his office and are open for j
inspection to any citizen of the State, j
And the Legislature for a number of
years has placed at the disposal of j
the governor $5,000, to be used in his
discretion, in the enforcement of the
law. This same sum has been used
for the same purpose and by other j
governors, and frequently to accom-j
plish results the names of those who
are employed are withheld from the
public. In other words, the. fund has '
been used in many cases in the me- i
ployment of private detectives. We i
do not recall any question being rais-'
ed before as to the expenditure of this
fund by other governors, and it is I
raised now for partisan political pur- j
poses. We do not know who were ap- j
pointed to do this work for other gov- j
ernors, but it is pretty certain that j
they employed their own friends, at1
least, friends to their administration,
to do the work.
A Birthday Dinner.
On March 21, 1912, (putting in the
year because somebody might thank j
the writer in ye^rs to come) about 30;
or 40 relatives and friends met at
Mrs. Laviiiia Kibler's and helped herj
enjoy her 85th birthday.
The guests did not want "Aunt,
Vin-e" io be in the kitchen all day,.
cooking tor her compar.v, so they took;
xv xl i
dinner, a 'ot :t, a.'oi.g wun mem,.
and had "Aunt Yiuifi" er.t with them, i
at her own house.
She is the only surviving child, as 1
we say in tracing kinship, of John I
Riser. Her grandfather was Martin !
Riser, who was not quite old enoughj
tn hp a Revolutionary soldier; but |
his father and brother Adam were in :
the great and successful struggle for j
freedom. That Revolutionary soldier, j
it is thought was from Germany, and j
no one seems to know his name. He !
settled, it seems, near Pomaria, 011 j
land now owned, some of it, by Mr. I
Will Bedenbaugh. His grave is said j
to be there, and the place is known
as "The Old Riser place." Mr. Jno.
D. Shealey now owns a part of the
"Aunt Vinie" is the ninth of ten i
children. Her mother was Barbara;
Anne Zeigler. The names of "Aunt
Vinie's" father's children, and whom
they married are as follows: William,
married Betsy Berley, Betsy married i
Adam Berley, John married Lizzie
Rikard, Hartweli married Happie Kinard,
Anne married Alph. Bundrick, I
George married Minerva Piester,
Adam married twice, but don't know

Kibler, .las. A. married Cornelia Bus-!
by. All these are dead except Lavinia,
Cornelia and the second wife of
Adam, living in Washington city. "Wal
tor, not mentioned above, died when
"Aunt Vinie" has lived the life of
noble widow-hood since her gallant
husband fell in battle, the battle of
the Crater, at Petersburg, Va. She j
was left with several children, and j
had to struggle to keep the wolf fromj
the door; but she succeeded. She!
never got rich, but brought up her i
children, and lived a beautiful Chris-:
Her children's names are as fol-;

ard, who sold it to Geo. Hipp, father
of Ed. Hipp, deceased. Mr. Hipp sold
it to "Aunt Vinie," together with a \
good deal of land, just after the Civil j
war, for 60 or 70 dollars in gold. It is |
adjoining her father's old place, where;
she was raised, and where the late;
Jas. A. Riser was born, brought up,,
and after spending his life there, buried
In addition to neighbors, the following
guests were on hand to bring congratulations:
Mrs. Martha Bickley and
son of Hilton; Mrs. Jane Hill, of Hil
ton, who was onoe Mrs. John KiDier; i
Dr. Cal Kibler was there from Atlan-;
ta. Several others could not get i
there because the Southern railway j
was disabled because of high water.
"Aunt Viriie" remembers some in- j
teresting things about the old times.1
She says she was a. little girl at the
time of, and attended, the sale of old
Rev. Wallern. At that sale her sister
Betsy had a beau who took Betsy and
herself to a table and set them up to ;
persimmon beer and cake. The old
negro that served was "Old Aunt Millie,"
a free negro. That sale must
have been after Mrs. Wallern died,
and not just after Rev. Wallern's
death; as he died before 1S20. The!
writer wanted to know who bought i
the books, so that he could find valu- j
able history, and other information i
he would like so well to have, in order
to preach a historic sermon at
St. Paul's; but she does not know
anything about Mr. Wallern's books. 11
Let it be said here, if any reader |
can put the writer on the track of
historic information about St. Paul's, j
which he does not have, he wou ld be j
glad to receive a card or letter oil the ;
subject. He wants to know how the |
church came by the land it owns,
when the congregation was organized,
where did Wallern come from, when j
did he begin his work as pastor here, j
what other churches did he serve, did
he serve as pastor till death, did he
leave any children or other relatives,
who followed him as pastor,.and who
next, and next?
