Entered at the Postoffice at V^wlerry,
S. C., as 2nd class matter.
E. H. AULL, ED1TUK.
Tuesday, August 6, 1912.
Only three more weeks and most of
the political tale will have been told.
One week from today the State campaign
meeting will be held in the best
county in- South Carolina.
If this strenuous campaign keeps up
much longer, we wouldn't be surprised
to see Colonel Roosevelt come down
and demand to enter.
The supervisor has given notice that
the roads must 1 e put in shape by the
time stated in the notice. Don't forget
the splitlog drag.
We can't see any objection in the
State executive committee's furnishing
anybody as many tickets as he wants,
if he is welling to pay for them.
Some of the Newberry streets afford
some mighty good grazing for stock.
.This would be a fine time to trot out
tbrw great hnVaiie. What has become of
The Idler, anyway?
If the State candidates could get as
fine barbecue dinners every campaign
day as the Newberry cou.ity candidates
get at every meeting, maybe they
"VNOuld all be in better humor.
The State campaign opened up again
at Camden yesterday, and there is a
meeting scheduled for every day this
week. Judge Jones' home will be visit
ed by the candidates today.

Grace is quoted as saying. If he refers

Both in Georgia and South Carolina.
Those ancient eggs pitched at Grace
in Spartanburg on Saturday night
could not have been as nauseating as
the filth which Grace, with the aid of
the newspapers, turned loose upon the
people of South C?rolina.
We note that over in Gaffney they
met John P. Grace with a brass band, j
Probably had the band on hand to
drown out portions of tlie Grace speech

doesn't go to suit the Times.

Governor Woodrow Wilson has determined
that he will not resign the
office of governor of New Jersey on account
of his nomination for the presi
dencv. Xo good Democrat ever resigns
anything. It is against the fundamental
principles of the party.
Still more politics. Col. Roosevelt's
new party meets in Chicago this week
to ratify the Colonel's nomination of
himself for president, to choose a running
mate for the Colonel, and to take
euch other action as may seem wise
and just and proper to the Colonel.
It is reported that the dispensary
committee may meet in Augusta or
Charlotte this week. It strikes us it
would suit Felders convenience better
if the committee should go to Atlanta.
Why cause Felder tli" inconvenience
of a trip from Atlanta to Augusta
or from Atlanta to Charlotte?
The committee ought to have a more
tender regard for Felder's feelings
than it seems to b,v showing.
The Herald and News has been asked

Every now and then we see published
in a newspaper a prayer, written
for publication, dealing with political
conditions in South Carolina. To these
fellows who are doing so much praying
in the newspapers, we earnestly
commend the words of the Master:
"And when thou prayest, thou shalt
not be as the hypocrites are: tor tney
love to pray standing in the synagogues
and in the corners of the streets,
that they may be seen of men. Verily
I say unto you, They have their reward.
But thou, when thou prayest,
enter into thy closet, and when thou
hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father
which is in secret; and thy Father
which seeth in secret shall reward thee
openly. But when ye pray, use not
vain repetitions; as the heathen do:
for they think that they shall be heard
for their much speaking. Be ye not
j therefore like unto them: for your
! Father knoweth what things ye have
i need of, before ye ask him."
SEEIXi "THROUGH A GLASS
In a style characteristic of the opponents
of the governor, the Greenville
Xews takes to task the Rev. Dr.
J. A. Sligh upon his remarks at Pomaria
introducing Governor Blease.
Says the Greenville News:
"And again Rev. Mr. Sligh says, "If
I were a candidate for the legislature
and should be elected and find that I
'o;;ld not work with the governor on
account of prejudice against him, or
enmity to him, I would resign and
come home and say to the people "elect
somebody else." In other words he
thinks the legislature should be a tool
of the governor, that those "members
who oppose the chief executive ^tep
down and out and clear the way for
the absolute rule of the chief executive.
It strikes us that a legislature
of this kind, without a mind of its own,
would be little better than no legislature
By reading Dr. Sligh's remarks,
quoted by the News in the above paragraph,
it will be seen that Dr. Sligh
said no such thine as the News mits
into his mouth. What Dr. Sligh said,
as quoted by the News, was that if he
could not work with the governor on
account of prejudice against him, or
enmity to him, he would resign and
come home. By no process of legitimate
construction or analysis could
Dr. Sligh's remarks be twisted into the
language which the Greenville News
says "in other words he thinks." What
Dr. Sligh said speaks for itself. What
the News puts into his mouth was
probably as far. from Dr. Sligh's
thoughts as what he said was from the
misconstruction which the News places
The News concludes its belabored
criticism of Dr. Sligh as follows:
"The mission of a minister is tc
teach, uplift and lead the people anc
surely Mr. Sligh, who was for 47 years
flip nastnr of the> St PauTc rhnrrth
! near Pomaria, has not thought ade!
quately of the road upon which he is
endeavoring to lead others. Public
opinion as expressed by the representative,
professional, educated, business
and journalistic world, not only
of this State, but of the entire country,
does not in concert condemn a
man without cause."
Dr. Sligh's life of service to his fel:1aw
man no defence at our
! hands. The trouble with the News is
j that in this paragraph it has followed
the lead of others who are fighting
Governor Blease, and has arrogated to
itself and the other opponents of the
! governor all education, all purity of
thought and word ana aeea, an uprightness
of life, all morality, all
righteousness and all truth. Based
upon these premises, the News' conclusion
falls because its premises are
erroneous. I)r. Sligh himself has some
I of the qualities which the Xews seems
| to think it and its friends in the fight
have secured a monopoly of. We have
no doubt that a great many others
I could be found out of the majority of
I the voters of South Carolina who are
supporting Governor Blease.
Dr. Sligh's life, his character, his
services, and the love and respect in
which he is held by the many he has
served, are a complete defence against
any attacks which may be directed at
him. If the mental vision or tne ;\ewe
were as unclouded as is that of Dr.
Sligh it could penetrate the cloak of
self-righteousness which the opponents
of Bl^ase have wrapped around
them, and it would be in great deal
better position to pass judgment upon
the thoughts and motives of the people
of South Carolina.
The Herald and News also has some j
campaign poetry, which it will spring '
i upon an unsuspecting publiq at the j
i phvchological moment.

| THE CHARLOTTE OBSERVER
IN DEFENCE OF BLEASE
I Charlotte Observer.
There is a political campaign go!
ing on down in South Carolina which
is more or less characteristic of that
State. The candidates before the pri- ;
mary for Governor are Hon. Ira B. I
Jones and Hon. Cole L. Blease. Mr. j
Jones represents the conservative ele- ;
ment, while fMr. Blease is not only1
I j * i j u! .i* i ml. -

campaign is being conducted upon a :
plane of vituperation and recrimiua- |
'tion-. Fire is added to this guber!
natorial contest by the winding up ;
| of the dispensary and liquor business. .
i One Tom B. Felder of Atlanta seems i
jto have been in^the past an attorney;
!and agent for the liquor interests,
land, in retaliation for some things
I that Blease has done, he seems determined
to ruin Blease if possible. He j
seems now to be himself at outs with
the liquor men, as well as in a tangle
with Governor Blease. Because of
Governor Blease's claim that he will
put him in jail if he comes into South
Carolina, Felder does not or cannot
| go into that State. The dispensary
j winding-up board lately held a meet
jing in Augusta, so that Felder could
be present to give his testimony. He
promised great exposures and had
one or more detectives, but no important
results ensued. His backing j
is a mighty poor backing, being a !
combination of the liquor interests |
land professional detectives.
I On the other hand, Mr. Blease is i
j charged with pardoning too many j
! criminals, and this seems to be true, j
i From time to time whispers are heard '
| that Blease has or may have received j
j money for some of his pardons. We
have no idea that this latter is true,
and whenever this subject is pushed
to the wall there is no foundation
found for it as yet. We have no
doubt that lawyers have prepared
papers in pardon cases and received
fees for same, and perhaps in some
'cases claimed a connection with
Blease, but this is a very different
thing from the Governor's taking a
bribe. It is understood that Mr. B. L.
Abney, who is a cousin of Mr. Blease,
has been his private and legal adviser
throughout his administration. Mr.
Abney is knoyn as one of the best
lawyers in the State and is a man of
integrity. It was always charged that
Tillman's majorities were largely due
1 to persistent prejudices expressed by
the conservative element of the State.
; The same thing is said of the present
campaign, and it may be true. Mr.
Jones, who is Blease's opponent for
Governor, seems to be a good conservative,
but the abuse Blease is receiv1
i ing from the conservatives will pro^'
bably drive many a vote to him on
