JUDGE JONES' CODNTY
HEARS THE CANDIDATES
BLEASE SENTIMENT WAS STRONG

Lancaster, Aug. 6.?A gala day is
this in Lancaster, Judge Jones' home
town, all the stores being closed and
(hundreds of people from nearby sectinnc
"havi ?r ncstc.mhlp/1 tn hpar the
candidates. Several hundred ]>eople
met the early morning train from
Camden, expecting to escort the governor
from the train to the speakers'
stand. They wore Blease badges and
followed a red banner beaming a
sketch of Governor Blease and slogans
in his favor.
- On top of freight cars sat many men
and all windows and doors along the
street from the depo? were crowded to
see the governor. But the governor
did not come on the morning train.
He arrived after the meeting began.
Judge Jones arrived last night and
he was met at the depot by a cheering
crowd. One banner in the crowd at
the campaign meeting bore the words,
"For Good Government, Ira B. Jones,"

Jones." Both candidates have boasted
they will carry Lancaster county and
there is political intensity in the
Repeating the statement, made from
the Sta?e house steps on the night of
July 19, when referring to. the KingWatson
incident, and saying that his
statement was within the bounds of
law and that Judge Jones knew it,
Governor Blease today said;
"1 was strictly within the law when
I made that statement from the State
house steps and Judge Jones knows
it's true. - I said those men came into
the mansion and used indecent language.
and I ordered them out. X
have no apologies to make. If another
imac comes in there and does the
Bame thing I'll give him and Judge
Jones something to -tfrite about"
He then explained that the law allowed
a man to ordf;r another frorh
liis house for cause and to use force
in doing it, and if necessary to "kill
Ihim." He further said that if a man
would come Into the home of one in
the crowd and use such language "you
knock him down, and throw him out
and if a jury in South Carolina are
fool enough to convict you, I'll wire
you a pardon."
He -added that he meant what he
said and had no apologies to make for
He called attention to the fact that
Judge Jones had failed to accept his
challenge and *mako an affidavit that
no corporation money was being used
in his campaign. Governor Blease read
part of a letter he said was written
by Mr. Thurmond, Judge Jones' manager,
in which some person asking
for money was referred to Col. Leroy
Springs, the governor remarking that
such action seemed strange.
At this point Coi. Springs, from the
audience, asked if he could interrupt
the governor, who replied that he
would not be interrupted during his
speech, but when he finished would answer
questions from any lady or gentleman.
"This is one of Jones' gags to interrupt
me," said the governor, "and
T T\Armif if AT ill

Springs or anybody else."
Governor Blease took a hand primary
and it appeared from this that
the Blease sentiment-might be in the
ascendancy in the crowd. However,
there were many who did not hold up
their hands and Jones followers were
many. Governor Blease was escorted
to the stage before his speech and
+V>/-> oftoi- it hv a 'hrtwlino

throng, headed by the bearer of the
red Blease banner. The crowd was
demonstrative but good order prevailed.
Judge Jones was introduced first to
the 2,.500 people who heard him and
Governor Blease speak. There were
many ladies present and these were
enthusiastic in clapping for him. Long
applause greeted Judge Jones and he
was heard attentively.
"I honor the office of governor of
South Carolina," said Judge Jones. "I
don't say I honor the occupant of the
governor's office. I do not admire the
man who fills the governor's office.
But I have not attacked him personally.
I have only attacked his public
Judge Jones made local application
of his denial of the "social equality"
charge when he named several other
fif the* hniJdp wifh him who
UlUil UViJi VI IUV
vored as he did. He named Dr. T. J.
Str&it, now a member of the senate,
and he s -id that at the time of the
defeat of the separate coach bill Dr.
Strait made no recorded protests
against such legislative action. Dr.
Strait was the most persistent supporter
of the governor in the 1912
"Lancaster county will have the
next governor even though you don't
vote for me," said Judge Jones, affirming
that the people of his county
would stand by him. When he completed
his speech he was presented
with a dozen floral creations, which
he received with fitting remarks.
When Governor Blease was an
v,^ TT700 crr'o.otoH wifh lr?nr? and
IIUUUV^U 1ic WW to* V ^ v*
"How in the dickens does he count
it out that Lancaster is going to get
the governor?" asked Governor Blease,
explaining that Blease, Jones and
Duncan had all been born and reared ,
ia N'ewberry county. Some one in
th-i crowd raised a vcico as though to
address a question to the governor.
"No, you wait till I get through and
then I'll talk to you," said the governor.
And he asked that any who
wanted to ask him questions wait till
after he finished.
Governor Blease Said Jones had
worked to have himself put on the
supreme bench over the then senior
associate justice, a thing which he j
said was beyond precedent. Gover- i
nor Blease's only reference to the !
"separate coach" charge was the state- j
;ment that he believed that Judge Jones'
vote on this measure in the nineties
was not not vote of Lancaster county.
This was received with some applause.
Governor Blease was handed several
bouquets of flowers. It was said here
today 300 operatives of the Lancaster
cotton mills walked out to attend the
-m^etiner and that the mill
was forced to close down.
Earle Hurls Ugly Word at Lyon.
The race for attorney general developed
a new sensation here today
when J. R. Earle hurled at Lyon the |
"Wilful and malicious liar" and j
when Attorney General Lyon drew j
back his fist to strike Earle, the chair- I
man, Mr. R. S. Stewart, interfered and i
trouble was avoided.
Attorney General Lyon in his speech
I said that certain statements made by
Earle yesterday carried false insinuations.
He was referring to Earle's
statement read at Camden yesterday
showing Lyon's expenditures while on
a trip in connection with his office to
Cincinnati. Earle later denied that he
had insinuated against Lyon's character
and he asked Lyon:
"Do you mean to say . that I made
insinuations against your character?"
Lyon replied that Earle's remarks did
not reflect on him and Earle replied:
"If you say I reflected on your character,
you are wilful and malicious
jliar.' At this point Lyon started to

a personal encounter he would
j meet him at the hotel later. No trouible
was later reported.
| The crowd quickly thinned when the
j governor concluded, only a remanant
remaining to hear Mr. B. B. Evans,
who arrived late at the meeting and
spoke out of his regular time. Mr.
Evans repeated the charges he has
made time and time again against AtI
torney General Lyon, who returned to
the stand, prepared to reply to his op
In his reply Mr. Lyon went into details
concerning the alleged payment
;of a sum of money by ex-Governor
I John Gary Evans to prevent criminal
^prosecution of his brother, B. B. Evans.
The attorney general read the
| letter of the former chief executive and
I referred to it as "hair splitting." In
!the letter ex-Governor Evans stated
! that no threat ofl criminal prosecution
of his brother had been made to him.
Mr. Lyon remarked that John Gary
Evans gave the facts so far as he knew
them at the time.
Following is the letter of ex-Go v'ernor
Evans to Attorney General Lyon:
; "Spartanburg, S. C., Aug. 2, 1912.
j "The Hon. J. Fraser Lyon, Columbia,
S. C.?Dear Sir: T notice in your
speech at Aiken, that you stated that
|l had paid money for B. B. Evans, to
jkeep him from being prosecuted, and
that I had never denied the same.
"I am sorry to be brought into your
j campaign, but I desire to deny the
statement and feel compelled to do so.
I i ue lticto ciic IUMUH o.
I "Mr. George Rembert, of Columbia,
wrote me that he had a claim for collection
against B. B. Evans and that
it ought to be paid. I wrote to Mr.
j Rembert that I would write to my
| brother, and i?> the claim was a j'i.st
' one I would see chat his client should
j not lose anything. I wrote to B. B.
; Evans and told him that if he did not
pay the claim on a specified date, I
! Vnt liroritior fm-m o n r? rp

ccivina: a letter from Mr. Rembert starling
that the claim had not been paid.
! I sent him my check. This is, all there
| is to it. Xo threat of prosecution was
ever made to me. I have written Mr.
Rembert asking him if he remembered
making any such threat; he writes me
that he does not. I have tiis entire
' record should you desire it.
Very truly yours,
"John Gary Evans."
Mr. Lyon stated that he had the
complete record of this matter in his
possession and in reply to the letter of
the former governor, said he would
have the record at Spartanburg Friday
and would be glad to have Mr.
Evans look it over, believing that the
latter would be convinced that bis
brother, B. B. Evans, was threatened
with criminal prosecution when the
money in question was paid. Mr. Lyon
also Dromised to correct any misstate
ment on his part that might be called
to his attention.
