UGLY WORDS AT CON WAY.
Bitase Denounces Travelling Newspaper
Conway, June 28.?There were more
, mean, ugly little words used in the
course of today's meeting of the State :
campaign than in any of the year, possibly
in many years. "Dirty, cowardly
lisr " "infernal snonndreL" "dirty
dog." "infamous rascal" and such like
came in quick succession, and for a

* * of brimstone. Everybody most was in
a scrappy humor, hut there were no
^ The two incidents that called forth
* these permissible forms of public pro
fanity were the attempt to interrupt
an<? disturb Attorney General Lyon by
one man in the audience, and the attack
of Governor Blease upon Mr. T.
H. Hunt, travelling solicitor for the

said to have been given currency
by Mr. Hunt, that Governor Blease wa?
paid $15,000 by a lady in Chicago for
the parole of J. Stobo Young. The
> s governor was strong in his denunciation
of this matter. No less strong
was the manner in which Attorney
General Lyon handled Mr. J. A. Schwerin,
who harassed him^ while he i

Earle and the Newspapers.
In addition to these two matters, a
little side issue'.was the attitude to^
wards the newspaper men displayed by
( ^Senator J. R. Barle, a candidate for
attorney general, who today employed
first nffpnsivo lanenme-p in TAfpr- I
Rence to the men with the campaign
Quitting the possibly far fetched fig-;
iurt.-, the next speaker was Senator J.
JR. Earle, for attorney general, who
' voiced his grudge against the newspav
pel men who are with the campaign
(! party. He said it was quite evident
that "the horde of newspaper men"
following the camnaien were certainly
not friendly to him. He read a someT.*liat
incoherent' statement in reference
to the honesty of Senator Tillman.
Evans Makes Good Speech.
Mr. Barnard B. Evans made an unusually
strong speech, today, temperate
in charges, but veil delivered.
Attorney General Lyon received
9 hearty applause. Hurriedly denouncing
the veiled charges made by Mr.
E"van6 as a "vile attempt to traduce
gcoo and honest men, wholly false and
malicious," the speaker devoted a little
more time in showing just wherein
f Senator Earle had voted against meas- j
I ures to assist the work of his office, j
> Mr. Lyon had not proceeded far i
"when lie was twice interrupted by Mr. j
J. A. Schwerin, a Sumter man, who is i

question: "Why didn't you prosecute

any evidence against Thos. B. Felder
they had kept it strictly away from

"You lie," retorted Mr. Schwerin, "if

Mr. Lyon said did not voucii for
p|?e character of Thos. B. Felder or iiis j
fjflKpast life, but that he had rendered
valuable assistance in prosecuting ir.e'
thieves in South Carolina.
Again Mr. Schwerin made his pres-!
ence known by some remark. The at- i
torney general turned to him again j
and said: "Look here, I'll be dow;i off !

you are not satisfied you may see :ne
i Mr. Lyon said he hoped the people
"would not allow any one man to disturb
a public meeting of this liind. In
rocTWMicp to this there were few!
I shouts of "He's no Horry man; he's j
from Sumter;" "Look him up," etc. It!
is not known what was done, but Mr.
Sehwerin left the audience during the
T^mflindpr of Mr. Lvon's speech. All
r during the rumpus there were ringing
cheers for the attorney general, and
the incident unquestionably raised him
in the people's esteem.
Mr. Thos. H. Peeples made his usual
Applause for Jones.
Judge Jones, received with generous
applause, at once took up in detail
the various charges previously made
by Governor Blease, regarding his vote
for Senator Irby and Judge Pope, and
His votes on tne divorce law, tne interest
rate regulation and the separate
coach law. The speaker denounced in
strong terms the effort to create the
impression that he thereby favored
social equality, "as the cheapest, lowest
clap-trap politics he had ever heard
in Qrmth Pa rnlin^ "
"Fale as H Itself."
"The intimation that I would lower
the white race to the level of the negro
is as false as hell itself." Among
those who voted the same way he did
on the separate coach law Judge Jones
named Messrs. C. J. Price and Jere
iniah Micheaux, of Horry. "Do you
people think these good men favored
social equality?" asked Judge Jones,
driving home his argument in most effective
"Governor Blease was a trustee of
a negro college," said the speaker, and
the people loudly cheered. More and
louder applause was evoked when
Judge Jones said: "Governor Blease on
the stump talks to you about niggers
being babboons. Listen to what he
says about the educational work for
np?rA?? in a nesxo ^olleere: "Thp. in
dustrial department is scoring a big
success. No better work of the kind
is being done anywhere." That is
what your governor says about these
babboons, and he says they would be
self-sustaining when they leave the
"And look at the negroes Blease has
pardoned," said Judge Jones. "He
turns loose a negro who burned the
barn of Senator Crosson, of Lexington,
who was a political enemy of the governor,
and he pardoned some negroes
ucaL up a yvhil^ man auu ic:t nim
tied to a tree."
Defends Judge Moore.
In defending Judge Ernest Moore,
whom Governor Blease has severely
criticised, Judge J[ones said that Judge
Moore was an honest, upright, honorable
and incorruptible judge, who had
"forgotten more law than Governor
Blease ever knew or ever will know."
As to the governor's claim to economy,
Judge Jones again pointed out
instances which he cited to show that
there had been a crippling of the government
and evidences of willingness
for "wildest e*travfl.erfl'nr?P
Judge Jones made effective use of
the fact that Governor Blease had refused
to commission Mr. C. P. Quattlebaum
to hold the Horry court. He declared
that the governor had piled
upon the people of this county the
burden of an unnecessary expense in

plause. He was again today presented
Vith *a bouquet of flowers.
Cheers for Blease,
There was loud cheering when Governor
Blease was introduced. He again

but the laughter of the crowd ^as soon
turned into serious attention to a situation
produced by the charge of "cowHo~>>

ciiui^ ii<xi dgcuiit)l x. xt. n.uhi, as soliciting
agent for the Columbia State.
Governor Blease said he had been
told that this man Hnnt was going
about the State telling that he had
been paid $15,000 for the parole of J.
Stobo Youfcig, of Lain ens, convicted in
the Seminole deals. T?ie governor called
on Mr. Hunt to siv whether or not
he had made such i statement.
"I said that I am relia!?!/ informed
there is a letter in existence from a
lrdy in Chicago ?o u laSv in South
Carolina, in which .'lie writer says she
paid $15,000 for ritYoung's release,"
spoke up Mr. l-unt from tLe
"You or any other nnn wt.o says 1

u WJV X V/UU<^ Q 10
a cowardly, dirty liar," flared Governor
Blease. The governor devoted
much time to denouncing Hunt and
other "paid hirelings" of the Columbia
State, who, he says, are following him
around on this campaign telling lies
on him. He also paid his respects to
the Rev. Alan MacFarlan, a Methodist
minister, who, he claimed, had been
?Oing about here in Horry telling that
Elease did not pay his debts.
Says Pays His Debts.
The governor defied anyone to show
that he owed a si^le account over
thirty days old, and produced what he
said was an unpaid note given by the
Rev Mr. MacFarlan to Mr. C. Harrelson,
of Mullins, for $98 for groceries.
One new matter touched upon by
the governor was that the separate
rnarh law hill nf thp parlv
not. unconstitutional, because on that
subject there was absolutely no difference
between the constitutions of 1S6S
and 1S95. He> also said the reason
T,3 ? T 1 ~
..nugt uoiits ittvurcu a ujvjxct; law was
to give him and th* other lawyers more
work to do getting divorces.
The governor came back at Judge
lores good and strong on the negro
question and kept the crowd yelling
j with his well-known Expressions on
! this subject. Some one in the audience
| interrupted him in this with a hurrah
' Yes, I expect you favor social
eouality and that is the reason you are
hollering for Jones," retorted the governor.
Another time he told a man in
the audience: "If I had a voice like
j yours I'd hire myself to a grave digi
eer." To the same man he again said:
"Gc off and get another drink of blind
tiger liquor and you can holler better."
The governor said that Jones's corporation
convention had refused to
adopt a resolution intoduced by Mr.
i . ....
Wannamaker, of Orangeburg, urging
the.repeal of the Fourteenth and Fif
teenth Amendments and recalled that I
one State convention had adopted such
a measure and sent its delegation to
the national convention instructed to
vdte for Ben Tillman for president
Governor Blease said if he had his
way and had a legislature to back him
he would like to abolish the negro
| college at Orangeburg, give back the
financial aid from tne isorin, ior ne
did not believe in negro education.
The governor was loudly cheered as
he closed, giving way to John T. Duncan,
the last speaker.
