His Speech at Bishopville Ca
day, In Which He
of His C
At the State campaign meeting at
* Bishopville on Wednesday, Governor
I Blease delivered an address which
created a sensation throughout the
n. - State. He said:
For six months before the opening
thi? ramnaien. Mr. Jones, who is
a candidate for governor, has been
going around throughout the State,
calling me an anarchist, and those
"who support me, anarchists, and denouncing
what he termed "Bleaseism"
as anarchy. ?
* I have also made many speeches
throughout the State* but have never, |
on any occasion, c?41ed his name or
^ made any reference whatever to his
* personal or political records, because
I did not consider it gentlemanly or
honorable to abuse a man, or to criticise
him harshly, where he had no
opportunity to make reply; but, on the
contrary, have conducted my campaign
upon a high, and honrable plane.
In my opening speech at Sumter, I
did not make any reference to any
special candidate in this race, nor
f did I make any attack upon the record
of any of them. The attacks which
f*- were made upon me are fresh in the
minds of tne peopiew i\one can *<ty
> that I have brought about the personal
feeling which is in this campaign,
nor can anyone say truthfully that I j
have condescended to the plane of a |
blackguard or a blatherskite, but have ;
conducted my campaign strictly as a
gentleman should do, and whatever
may be the future results of this campaign,
or whatever low plane it may
be thrown upon, personally or politically,
none can say that it was brought
about by me or my friends. God Almighty
has never planted in the breast
of man a higher or holier spirit
than that by which he is prompted to
resist oppression, and when one is attacked,
none would be so cowardly as
to deprive him of the right to strike
back in his own defense; hence, what
I am going to say now is in the defense
of myself. The term, "Bleas
ism," was not originated by me; there- \
fore, I am not responsible for its use. j
I now propose to give you some of j
the public record of Ira B. Jones, as J
made by him when a member of the
hpuse of representatives, when speakA**

when associate justice and chief jus-!
tice of the supreme court, and to show I
you that however bad "Bleasism" may j
be, it is not as bad as "Jonesism," and 1
that Blease, when acting in any pub- j
lie capacity, or in private life, has
never endeavored to force social!

children of this country, with the negro
men, and that Jones has done so,
and that Blease has always worked ;
for the interest of the people of the j
State, and that Jones has worked for j
the interest of the money powers and j
Mr. Thurmond, who boasts that he j
is Jones campaign manager, auu iux
which I presume he is being paid by
some one, in a letter which he sent
out on the 25th of March, 1012. either
deliberately and maliciously (or being
ignorant of his candidate's record)
endeavored to mislead the people, to
whom he sent that letter, by stating
something in it which was absolutely
untrue and not borne out by the records
of the legislature.
He stays, (writing of Jones and him-1
self), "We were both in the house as j
Tillmanites;" which I think is true, \
judging by the votes which Jones al- ;
, ways voted, and particularly his nomi-!
nation speech in seconding Col. Irby j
for the United States senate against
General Wade Har^pton, for which 1
have no criticism tc mke 01 mm, dui 1
only mention it in order that the rec- i
ords may be kept straight, he having !
been elected speaker, to succeed Col. j
Irby,. which was part of his reward
lor his speech, and for his support of '
Col. Irby against General Hampton, j
I think he further proved that when j
he voted against Judge William H.
-- - A ,? 4.1, ?
Wallace ror associate juoutc ui uie i
* supreme court (see house journal, I
1891, page 171), and again when he j
voted to turn Judge Wallace, who had |
done as much or more to redeem South, i
Carolina from negro rule and republi- ,
canism as any man in the State, and :
vx-hon most assuredly. if he was not I
entitled to a promotion, was entitled i
to be left on the bench as a circuit i
judge for his entire lifetime, for the !
services which he had rendered, and
I. because of the fact that his record as j
' * judge was pure, clean and absolutely j
one of good judgment and strong abil- |
ity; yet, Jones voted to retire him to

private life, that lie might die as a
private citizen, heart-broken, conscious
of the fact that his services had
been so little appreciated that a legislature
of his own State could humiliate
him without excuse, with defeat.
Mr. Thurmond further stated, "ne
(speaking of Jones) was a strong advocate
of the dispensary and is now a
local optionist" Let's see: Jones voted
for prohibition, see house journal, 1891
page 203, and again, same house journal
naps 227. Jones voted for county
r?o ~ prohibition,
see house journal, 1891,
page 578; voted for the Roper and j
Childs bill, which provided for State- j
wide prohibition, see house journal,!
1892, pages 225, 312, 314 and 324. Jones j
voted against the dispensary law when
it was first and originally passed. The
house had passed what was known as j
flio PAnan on/1 Hhil/la hill Sf?tf>-Wide
AVV^/Vl umi. w*?y ?>w.w ^
prohibition, for which Jones had vot-j
ed all the way through, and it was sent J
to the senate. It was amended in the I
senate and the dispensary law was j
sent back to the house as the amend- 1
ment to the Roper and Childs bill. |
Jones voted against the amendment, i
wThich was the dispensary law, see j
house journal, 1892, page 573. When |
did Jones turn from being a prohibi- j
tionist, as proven by every one of his;
votes, and as proven by his vote
against the original dispensary law,
to a dispensary man? Was it when he
wanted to be promoted to associate
justice of the supreme court, and
when the dispensary people had abso- |
lute control of the government and;
legislature, which was to elect the as-i
sociate justice? Go a step further: |
When the fight was being made in the,
legislature to keep a dispensary from :
bein# forced into Marlboro county,:
Jones voted to force the dispensary in |
Marlboro, without allowing the people j
to vote as to whether they wanted it!
or not, thus depriving them of local I
self-government, see house journal, j
1893, page 465. He also voted against j
local option and to force the dispen-,
sary in dry counties, see house journal \
1883, pages 467 and 468. The impor-!
tance of this vote is so great, in viev\* j
of hisv recent political somersaults,'
that I beg leave to quote it here in full, j
see house journal, 1893, page 467: Mr.1

following section 41: (the house then j
having under consideration the dis-;
pensary law): "No part of this act j
shall apply to any town in this State,
that prohibits the sale of liquor under
charter. Also, all counties in which j
the sale of liquor is prohibited by i
statutory law; Provided, that at a gen- j
eral election, two-thirds of the regis-1
tered voters of said counties express
by ballot a desire for the establish- i
ment of a dispensary therein, then, in

lijshed within, the limits of some;
town or city within that county." Mr. j
Nettles moved to lay the amendment
on the table. The yeas and nays were j
rpniipstprf and the first man recorded
as voting in the affirmative and:
against this amendment, which pro-:
hibited the putting of dispensaries in j
dry towns and dry counties, and which !
gave to the people of those towns and j
counties the privilege of local option,
is Ira B. Jones, speaker. When did he j
become a local optionist, after he |
could not force liquor on ary couuues. j
Having voted for State-wide prohibi- j
tion all the way through, he then j
flopped over to the dispensary, and j
then voted every crack to force the i
dispensary into prohibition territory, \
which had always been so called, "dry
counties," When he flopped from pro- j
hibition, he double somersaulted and
out dispeusaried the dispensary's daddy,
as is shown here by his record, j
Now, did Mr. Thurmond, when he
wrote this letter, know Jones' record, (
or did he. attempt to deceive?, for
Jones certainly was not "a strong ad- j
vnfflte of thp disnensarv." and he cer- !
tainly was not a local optionist when i
he had a right to vote and give local
option to the people; but he voted to
deprive them of it.
When did his conversion to local op- i
tion take place? since he entered the |
rafp fnr ffovemor. Jones mav have!
been converted about the time that th<- j
house took out of his hands the ap-j
pointment of a certain committee, j
which had always been appointed by j
J ... V ~ r. I
the speaker, ana ai uie uiue wucu uc;
got very angry and resigned from the
speaker's thair, see house journal,
1894, page 552, showing a complete
loss of control of himself, just as he
did when he got mad because he could
not be governor and chief justice both,
| and resigned the high and honorable
j position of chief justice (which is for,
| a term of two years, at a salary of
|three thousand dollars per annum), i
run for governor, (which is only for J
a term of two years, at a salay of!
thee thousand dollars per annum).
But, he says he is a great moralist; j
yet, he voted to have a divorce law in
South Carolina, see house journal,
1892, page 235, thus endeavoring to
break down the great moral bulwark |
which South Carolina boasts so much
of. I cuppose he has climbed back on:
the moral pinnacle, since he could i
not make the divorce law, while he;
was practicing at Lancaster, in order
that he might make some handsome
fees in the divorce business.
"When we were struggling to relieve
ourselves from the exorbitant rate of
interest which was being charged in
this State, and when the money-lenders
were robbing the people with
usury, Jones was in the speaker's
chair, as speaker of the house of rep- j
resentatives, and when Mr. Magill, of
Greenwood, moved to reconsider the
vote whereby the house had indefinitely
postponed the bill to reduce the legal
rate of interest and to prevent
usury, a motion was made to lay the
motion of Mr. Magjll on the table; Ira
B. Jones voted to lay Air. Magill's motion
on the table, and thus kill the i
bill which would have reduced the le- j
gal rate of interest and would have j
prevented usury in this State, seej
house journal, 1894, page 214. Was j
Jones representing the moneyed interests
and the corporations then, as he j
is doing today, or was he trving to i
help the poor man, by voting to allow j

when we were fighting so hard in the
legislature to get a labor law to pro-;
tect the poor laboring people of this j
country, Jones voted against the j
amendment and in the interest of the \
cotton mill owners and bosses and
against the laboring man, see house
journal, 1892, page 358. Jones voted

by working the operatives' one hun-1
dred and ten hours extra. When did !
he get converted into such a friend
of the laboring man? His votes do
not show it.
There are many other things in con-!
nection with his record as a member ;
of the house of representatives that j

time, will not suffice; however,\there j
is one thing that I know he is partic-,
ularly proud of, and know that his j
friends would be very much disap-!
pointed if I did not' give his record on :
it; hence, under no consideration
would I overlook it.
When they were fighting so hard to ;
fcppn members of the legislature from i
using free passes, Jones voted for free
passes, see house journal, 1891, page;
354. The newspapers stated that
when he was asked about it, his reply j
was: "Yes, they offered it to me and I!
took it, and I will take part of the;
if tho-ir will crivp if tn mp " That
X V?U 4 4. VMV J ?f *** O* ? V V VV ? ^
was all very well and good; but, let's;
see: Did he have that free pas in hispocket
when he made the record which j
I am now going to cite? In 1890, see j
house journal, 1890, pages 76, 90 and<
376, when I introduced a bill to proviso
fnr wnaratd pnafhpc fnr white
and colored people in this State, Jones i
voted to kill the bill and have no sep- \
arate coaches. It was said to have j
been the first separate coach bill ever j
introduced in the South. As to that, j
I do not know; but I know that it was
the first, or among the first, ever in- j
troduced in South Carolina.

a hard fight, endeavoring to relieve j
the white ladies, your wives, your j
mothers, your daughters and your!

coach, in a seat right next to and
sometimes jammed up against a big'
black negro wench, or a stinking negro \
buck, Representative Wigg, a negro I
member of the legislature from Beau- j
fort count}*, moved to indefinitely:
nostDone the bill, which, of course,
meant to kill the bill and have no sep- j
arate coaches. Jones voU.-d :or the j
motion and against separate coaches,,
see house journal, 1891, page 262, and
with the negro, Wigg, co make your
mothers, wives, daughters and sweethearts
rirte in t.hp same cjache.? With

motion, and for the bill. T^u:. he was
not even satisfied with that; on page
276, house journal of IS'Ji, lie again
voted against the bill, when V7igg
moved to kill it; and, even after -he j
went home and slept and dreamed ov- |
pr thp mflttpr }ip bacit to the I
legislature, and in 1893, see house j
journal, 1893, page 186, he again voted ;
against separate coaches. But, home;
he goes again and comes back, and in j
1894 we find him again work nj an.lj

and 312. Did be still haze big free j
pass in his pocket; was he au attor- |
ney for a railroad? 1 60 not know.,
and do not accuse him of it, but the j
records show that on every vote, when
the opportunity was afforded Mm 10 j
prevent social equality in South Caro- j
lina, he voted to force wmte ladies j
and white children to associate wi*h
free negroes, by traveling in the same
coaches with them; by forcing them
to drink out of the same water glasses:
bv forcing them, in some instances,
to use the same toilets; by forcing
them to sit so close to them as to
smell the filthy odor which they throw
off. Every time he had the opportunity
to prevent that he voted against it j
and in favor of the railroad corpora-1
tions who were fighting it. That is j
some of his record gentlemen.
Has Candidate Jones stood by the
negro? His recent convention refused
to pass a resolution favoring the repeal
of the fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments to the constitution of the
United States, which places the negro
on equal footing of citizenship with
the white man and deprives the State
.r?f thp nVht tn riisfrprinhise him. This
resolution was introduced by Mr. J
Wannamaker, of Orangeburg. All of
the other Southern States favor it
The Jones . corporation convention
committee reported it unfavorably and
tLus putting themselves on record as
opposing the repeal of these clauses,
while all the other white 'people and
all the Southern States do. This is the
cap-stone corporation Jones, fighting |
against separate coaches and in favor
of negro equality, places upon his disgraceful
corporation, record as legislator,
judge and delegate.
Now, you have heard some painting
of "Bleaseism." Which do you
Drefer. negro equality and association,;
such as he attempted to place upon j
you, or freedom and independence!
such as I have given you? Which do
you want? "Jonesism" or "Bleaseis:n,"
as he sees tit to call it?
Now, he passed on to the supreme j
court. What do we find there? I
will tell you one thing you will find, I
that while he was on the supreme
bench, and while he was chief justice, j
his son, who was looking after a bank, >
and a grocery business and a stock
business over here at Lancaster, was
riding around on railroad passes as a
railroad attorney. Just as soon as

What about some of his decisions in j
favor of corporations, when he was
on the supreme court bench:
Take the case of Taylor vs. A. C. L. j
R. R. Co., 78 South Carolina. This is!
a case in which a white lady of good :
standing was put off of a train at!
Green Pond, in the midst of a crowd j
of drunken negroes, who violently
pushed and jostled her, abused her
* V, nnaanliM noinff Q n c>

and obscene language, etc. The agent
of the company* ran off, telling her
that he was going to get his pistol,
but he never returned, leaving this1
lady there among that throng drunk- j
? " V. mai? f + on-ftmof I
611 116grO&a. One Uiuugui sun, agauioi |
tte Atlantic Coast Line railroad and i
the jury gave her a verdict of ten j
thousand dollars. A motion for new i
trial was made and Judge Dantzler re- |
fused it. But, lo and behold, when
they got into the supreme court, the
distinguished corporation lawyer,
Jones, wrote the opinion of the court
and said, among other things: "It
is not th^e duty of a common carrier
to provide escorts tor unattended ladies,"
and winds up his opinion by
saying that the judgment of the circuit
court is reversed, thus depriving this
lady, who had been so outrageously
and indecently treated by a corporation,
of all the money which a jury of
her county had given her and which
that inet and flhristian iudse. Dantz
V J _ ? - !
ler, had sustained. We find Justice i
(now chief justice) Gary dissenting!
from Jones. Again, Corporation Jones
saved the corporations ten thousand
dollars, and the poor white lady, insulted
by a crowd of drunken negroes,
deprived of her rights and the money

county which, he claims was his father's
home county) had given her. He
must have great respect for the juries
of his father's home county.
See also the case of Oxner vs. Western
Union Telegraph company, 82
South Carolina reports, page 510; 63
Southeastern reports, page 545.
This was where a white lady, a
widow, paid twenty-five cents for a
telegram to be delivered in Newberry,
asking after her two children, at the
towihla firo tt'Vl i/>h A
tllllC Ul ui ^ ?? mavu
stroyed a large portion of the town of
Newberry. The telegram was never
delivered. The jury gave her a ver- !
diet, which Judge Ernest Gary upheld.
But, lo and behold, when it got to
the supreme court, Corporation Jones
wrote an opinion in which he set aside 1
the verdict, making the poor widow I
i? + tVio !
pay me cus>is, uuinHUfliuu?m6 ?^,
fact that the Western Union Telegraph
company kept her twenty-five
cents for something they had never
done. However. w? are not surprised,
for John Gary Evans was the Western
Union Telegraph company's counsel in
the case. Chief Justice Pope dissented
and said that the widow was entitled
to recover. Corporation Jones
not only took her verdict away from
her, but stole her quarter and gave
that to the Western Union and made
the poor woman pay the costs.
Again, in the case of King vs. Atlantic
Coast Line railroad, 86 South
Carolina reports, page 510: This was
a case in which the plaintiff shipped
some goods over the Coast Line which
were lost in transit, xne magistrate
in. Darlington gave the plaintiff judgment
for his lost goods and $50 penalty.
Judge Sease sustained the magistrate's
decision. The corporation, of
course, appealed to Corporation
Jones; Corporation Jones wrote the
decision, in which he reversed the
magistrate and the circuit court as to
the $50. Mr. Justice Gary dissented,
standing by the side of the magistrate
and the circuit court, but Corporation
Jones controlled and the citizen was
deprived of his rights, as usual.
. Again, see the case of Kirven vs.
Virginia-Carolina Chemical company,
58 Southeastern reports, page 424.
Here is one of the greatest corporations
in this State, and one which
South Carolina herself has had much
trouble with. After this plaintifE had
recovered his verdict against this corporation
and combine, before that
honest and Christian judge, Klugh,
we find Judge Gary and Judge Watts
saying that the judgment should be
affirmed; but, along comes Corporation
Jones saying that the judgment
should be reversed. Again, we find
Jones favoring the. corporations and
the mighty of the mightiest, and that
to the detriment of one of our own
citizens; one who had helped, in his
humble way, as a member of the legislature,
and otherwise, to promote
the welfare of his State. I have heard
the question asked, "What did that decision
cost the V. C. C. Co.?"
There are many others, but I only
mention these as a sample of the
justice meted out. Examine carefully
and see if it is not a fact that Jones
was always in favor of corporations,
particularly the Southern railway, of
which his son was the attorney, and
see if you do not find that only when
he was against them was when the
court was unanimous, but whenever j
there was an opinion for the railroads
cr a divided court on a railroad case,
that you found Jo'nes siding with the
corporations, the railroads. Why did
the Southern railway have son Charles,
with his pass, in Columbia in the
Merger case? Did he question any
witnesses? Did he speak? Or, was
he there, getting paid, in case an ap"i
Vior? f^ Kn moHo tr> nst 9 TTnTO Hirl

pa and Charles get so immensely rich
practicing at little Lancaster?
I regret to go into these matters.
Two years ago we had a clean campaign,
a crowd of gentlemen running
for governor, and on so high a plane
was the campaign that when one
would go back to the hotel, out on
the street with his friends or somewhere
in a shady nook for rest, because
he knew that his opponents were
not going to say one word about him
or make any criticisms of his public or
private record. It was a pleasant
rax;e; it was free from abuse and
vituperation, and if I had the privilege
of choosing, would choose such a race
for this campaign; but, nine months
ago, I was put on notice of.what was
coming, and in the last few months,*
it has been repeated time and again
by abuse of me, in my absence, and
while I regret the course things have
taken, I have conducted myself upon
a plane of dignity, such as :s becoming
of the chief magistrate of your State;
but, the right of self-defense is
prompted by God in his creation of
man; it is guaranteed in the constitu
tion of our republic and of our State,
and I presume none would be so mean
as to deprive me of it; therefore, I
strike back, and in no uncertain way.
Let the consequences be what they
may, the responsibility will rest upon
my traducers and those who have
seen lit to ;vilify and abuse me, and
not upon me and my friends.
