It is a good plan to disbelieve all
new reports you hear about candidates
from now until the primary.
There would be no time now to run
down the meanest kind of a report
about a candidate, and therefore they
should not be believed.?Orangeburg
Times and Democrat.
There is good advice contained in
thig paragraph. We believe, however,
the time has passed in ssoum Carolina
when eleventh-hour reports
agaitfst candidates hurt those
against whom they are circulated.
Let's watch and see against whom the
"new reports'' from now on are directed.
Two years agao they were directed.
Two years ago they were direct?f

We are publishing today by request
o 11 nidation from a
i)l tIIC clUUiv/J. a
veteran commenting upon matters at
the Soldiers' Home in Columbia. The
Herald and News has published none
of these reports because we have taken
no stock in the charges that there
has been any effort to coerce the old
soldiers, or that the old soldiers could
foe coerced. This communication appeared
in the last issue of the Observer
and the author requests The Her24
aid and .News to puunsu it auu ocuu
bill to him. Were ft a matter which
had had any publicty in The Herald
and News it would be a communication,
to be published without charge.
But inasmuch as it deals with charges
none of which have been published in
The Herald and News, for the reason
stated, it is legitimately an advertisement,
and is published and marked as
We have received from a "gentleman |
in another county a letter which is
deeply appreciated, not only because
of the kindly sentiments it expresses,
;but because they come from the heart
of a gentleman whose integrity of
character and whose upright and I

(have won for him the confidence and
the highest esteem of all those who
He says, in part in his letter: "The
manly way in which you gentlemen
have stood up.in your paper for Gov.
Blease against such heavy newspaper
odds commands my most profound re
spect and admiration; and also the
Tv-ant of such bitterness in your articles
as has done the other side harm."
In the kind of campaign which has
been forced upon us this year, such
expressions as these, coming from the
gentleman who gives utterance to
them, bring a great deal of cheer, and
The Herald and News shall continue
to strive to be worthy of them.
THE STATE CAMPAIGN.
* ' * At
The regular itinerary 01 uie ouue
campaign party was concluded yesterday
in Greenville, and the campaign is
row near to its close. We trust that
in this campaign we will be free from j
the eleventh-hour reports which have
characterized some South Carolina
campaigns in the past. We do not believe
the people of South Caroling can
be influenced by such campaign meth1
cds, knowing the history of past campaigns
a"s they do; but it is well to
caution against them.
We believe Newberry county is going
to give a big majority for Governor
Blease, whose home is in Newberry,
and we believe that he is going to be
re-elected by a big majority.
No matter who is elected in any
race, we trust that the primary of next
Tuesday \Vill end the bitterness which
the cam pa 10'n nas engendered; max
the' people who have drawn apart during
the campaign \\Iil get together i
again, each giving the other credit for
purity of motive, and that political
peace may once again abide with the
ISSli: \0 MOKE "BLEVSEISM" '
i < I
The Yorkville Enquirer, which has
been taking a middle-of-the-road
course during this campaign, but
which has exhibited an admirable fairness,
which, by the way, has never
been foreign to the Enquirer, has an
editorial in its last issue on "The Issue,"
in the course of which it says:
"As to what the real issue is, most
people understand better than we can
tell them, and we do not care to try
because it will give too much ground
for profitless dispute. But we do not
agree that the issue is any more
Bleaseism than it is Jonesism, and we
do not believe that the personal char^
| acters of the two men figure in the
j slightest. We believe that if something
should happen right now to
make Blease the leader of the Jones
following and Jones the leader of the
Blease following, the strength of Jones
would become the strength of Blease
and the strength of Blease would become
the strength of Jones Of course
such a happening is impossible; but
the illustration is apt enough.
"We have said before and we do not
hesitate tn snv it asrain that on the
BJease side are men who are as ?bod
and true as any on the Jones side, and
there 'are men on the Jones side who
are as good and true as any on the
Blease side. And all the wealth and
intelligence or righteousness is not on
one side. The principal difference between
the two sides is political rather
than moral and the great issue at
stake is power and authority?the control
of the government."
The course of the Yorkville Enquirer
has called forth broadsides from the
Columbia State and some of the coun
ty papers, which seem to think that a
man or a newspaper has gone absolutely
and irrevocably to the bad if
he or it does not line up against Governor
Blease and what they are pleased
to term "Bleaseism." The Enquirer,
however, has been taking care of
itself, and in the editorial we have referred
to and quoted from it states
forcibly some truths which some of
the opponents of Governor Blease, in
arrogating to themselves all morality
and all righeousftess, have completely
overlooked, but which will count heavily
when the ballots fall on next Tues1
Who is responsible for the bitterness
of this campaign? It is those who
have directed and sanctioned all kinds
of vile attacks upon Governor Blease,
without a scintilla of proof, and have j
called his supporters all kinds of,
i names, or is it those who have sought j
to defend the man of their choice, at
the same time admitting that those
who do not agree with them on politics
are entitled to their opinions and
to the freedom of ballot guaranteed
by the fundamental law of the land?
There are many good men supporting
Judge Jones, and there are many
good men supporting Governor Blease,
and the sooner all the people realize
that all virtue and all principle is noti
011 one side, the better for South Carolina.
We believe Governor Blease is going
to be re-elected next Tuesday by a big!
majority, and we believe the size of the I
majority will . be a sufficient
rebuke to some of the attacks which
have been made upon Governor Blease
and those who are supporting him, as
they have a right to do.
We do not want to be understood as
charging that aH the supporters of
and done in this campaign, and we are
donp in thic oamnaien. and \vp are
making no charges against Judge'
Jones. We are simply pleading for
fairness and justice and for that political
tolerance which must prevail beI

VERY QUIET MEETING
AT PICKENS WEDNESDAY
ALL CANDIDATES MAKE 3I1LD
Blease Reads Portion of Letter From
Tillman to Show Latter is
Pickens, Aug. 21.?"Governor Blease
knows himself that he is beaten; he
sees the hand writing on the wall and
knows he is gone," was one of the
declarations made by Judge Ira B.
Jones in the course of a clear-cut and
vigorous presentation of his candidacy
at the State campaign meeting here
today. Judge Jones declared that Governor
Blease is "scared and I can
prove it." He then cited the governor's
talk about assassination at Gaffney,
where, said Judge Jones, "I had
to pull out and show him a little cork- j
i sr>rp\v I had in my pocket just to keep j
j him from trembling to death."
In contrast to most of his speeches
(during the campaign Governor Blease.
; made no special attack on Judge .Jones '
[today. Very seldom did he mention j
Judge Jones's na*me, and onili.Kd en-J
itirelv the "social equality" and some'
I of the other charges that have hereto-j
j fore consumed much of the governor's j
! rimo in nrpsentilie.
The governor today read a portion j
of a letter from Senator Tillman bear- j
ing on the gubernatorial race, defend- i
ed his pardon record, and outlined oth- j
er planks of his platform.
With a view to showing that Sena- j
tor Tillman is "hands off" in the gub- j
ernatorial fight, Governor Blease read i
from an article recently sent out from j
Washington by Mr. P. H. McGowan, i
which, said the governor, stated that j
i he had promised his influence to Co-. |
| W. Jasper Talbert in the senatorial;
race. Gov. Blease declared he nad nev- i
j er mentioned the senatorial or guber- !
natorial race to Col. Talbert. Thp gov-'
ernor said Mr. McGowan ought to bo
named -4P. H. Liar."
In reference to his charge that the |
Jones people intend to count him out,!
if possible, Governor Blease said he j
had received a letter from ? Manly
Smith, ex-sheriff of Lee county, saying
that State Chairman John Gary Evans
had sent the.Lee county chairman two
I thousand tickets for use in the primj
ary, whereas there are three thousand j
names on the club rolls of Lee county.
The governor said also that the
Pickens county chairman had ' been
furnished two thousand tickets less!
than asked for. Lee and Pickens are |
both Blease counties, said the gover- j
nor, who declared the State chairman a I
alleged action in regard to the ticket's j
showed "they are trying to count me i

On August 6, 1912, the death angel
came to the home of Mrs. Dora Thrift,
in West End, and carried away the
spirit of their mother, Mrs. Mary A.
Mrs. Force was born in Newberry
county February 16, 1S41, and was
married to Mr. G. W. Rankin in her
young days. He was killed in the War
Between the States, and was buried a:
Point Look Out. Two children survives
this union, Mr. T. B. Rankin, of
Saluda, and Mrs. Dora Thrift, of West
End. In later years she married Mr.
Charley Force, who died in 1901, and
one child survives this union, Mr. J.
A. Force, of Saluda.
Mrs. Force was 71 years old at her
death, but notwithstanding her advanced
age, she was very active up until
a few months before her death. Her
sight failed her some time ago, but
she made it her duty to look for the
bright side of everything.-"Every dark
cloud has a silver lining" was her motto.
Mrs. Force is survived by three
children, twenty-four grandchildren
and seventeen great grandchildren.
Her body was laid to rest in Bethany
burying ground in Saluda, there to
wait for the sound of the trumpet
when "The dead in Christ shall rise."
Go spirit, take thy flight,
To him, thy great Creator;
Why do we weep and mourn
For man. The mortal thing?
A life 10 thee is given here
To blossom lor Him in Glory.
