Columbia, Oct. 10?Everybody knows
that Gov. Blease has been and is a
Democrat, but there have been persistent
rumors given circulation around
the State that the governor looked
with favor upon the "Bull Moose," and
a Columbia dispatch publishe-d in a
? Spartanburg paper quoted a supporter
of the governor in the recent primarj',

the effect that the governor, if he had j
not been declared the nominee for a j
second term by the State executive
committe, would have gone into the
general election on the Roosevelt tick
et. This, of course, is absurd on its
* face, because the govecnor all along
was contending that he was the nominee
of the Democratic party. But re- i
ports of various kinds will gain pub- i
licity, and Gov. Blease was asked by a i

there was, as matter of fact, no foundation
for them, and, if he considered
it necessary, he would probably in the
next few days issue a statement reiterating
his well-known Democracy.

by national party organizations to the
race question in the South. In discussing
the matter, Gov. Blease said
nothing of the race question. He simply
stated there was no truth in any
of the reports insinuating sympathy
4 on his part with the "Bull Moose"
movement in South Carolina.

glowing with confidence in The Colonel's
chances. The Herald and News !
would like to print Mr. Dunn's state- j
ment in full, but I learn that lack of |
space will forbid. In regard to the '
situation in South Carolina, Mr. Dunn j
stated that every mail since the organization
of the party in this State
last Friday has brought assurances j
from every part of South Carolina of
enthusiastic support, "and the fair and
V tolerant attiude of the entire State
- press towards this new party moveIW
ment indicates that it is net only welcomed
in the State, but that as soon
as the pledges and commitments that
have been made at the primary in the
present election have been fulfilled,
there will be a general turning
of prominent leaders throughout the j
. State to this new party. There is no !
doubt in the mind of any one attached :
to or associated with headquarters in '

the story started was that he said that
if it was necessary to go into a general
election, Gov. Blease would not
only have the support of Democrats,
* A x "Ll Afrvrvrin" nannlo
Dili mat tut; duu i\iuuot ^^would
support him in preference to
other candidates. However, the story
started, Beard says there isn't any
truth in it, and that he has written a
denial to the Spartanburg Journal, the
newspaper which published the Columbia
dispatch in question.
Mr. Beard said: '.'As my friends all
over the State are asking why I accepted
the position of State secretary
for the Progressive, or as it is popularly
called, the "Bull Moose" party, I
take this opportunity to state my position
on same. I could not afford to,
nor would I accept a like position
with the Republican party, because of
their affiliation, past and present, with
the negro, on equal terms. It is different
with this new white party, which
proposes to adapt itself to Southern
conditions, and I can see 110 reason
whatever why a white Southern Democrat,
if he approves of the platform
and principles of this new party
which has sprung into being in response
to the' crying needs- of the
times, should not join it in perfect
good faith and will. All who know
me and the strenuous fight I have
waged against radicalism and negroism,
as editor of the Ne-ws-Scimiter
and otherwise, and in the interest of
organized labor, will take this state
ment as a guarantee that there is absolutely
no affiliation whatever with
the. Republican party." j
The advent of the party into South
'Carolina is feared not at all by the
Democrats. The only noticeable defections
in this State of which the new
party has the benefit are from the Republican
or Taft ranks. South Carolina
is as solidly Democratic as she has
been since 1876, and as she will be as
long as present party organizations
'continue and bear the same relation
to the negro question as now.
The "Bull Moose" headquarters are
in Room 23 at the Columbia hotel. The
number of the room has called forth
a number of facetious remarks.
But che object of this story was to
say that Gov. Blease has no "Bull
Moose" leanings, and that the state- j
"ments and insinuations which are going
the rounds are in the nature of
pipe-dreams. The governor not only
has no "Bull Moose" leanings now, but
has had none. He has been and is,
as everybody knows, a Democrat.

A Dramatic Finish.
Rarely, if ever, has any world's <
series game provided such a dramatic
finish. Two runs behind in the ninth, |

hope. Hundreds were leaving the j
stands when Merkle sent a single |
whistling to the outfield, after one
man was out. Even then the chance
'of tying the score seemed remote, but
a Texas league;- by Herzog, followed
quickly by a hit by Myers which sent
Merkle home, put the stands in a
flamq of excitement.
With Giants on second and third,
"thousands stood in their seats and
yelled. Fletcher swung his bat nervously
at the plate, while Joe Wood,
white of face, seemed anxious. Tne
Red Sox twirler patted the grass,
hitched his belt, rubbed the ball, and
adjusted his cap. This delay seemed
"to unsettle Fletcher and he swung

Second Game Ends in Tie.
Boston, Oct. 9.?The second contest
of the world's series between the Boston
Americans and the New York Nationals
today went eleven innings to
a tie score of 6 to 6. when darkness
put an end to the battle that kept 30(
> 1 n t tci's cii the r(ise hi" !: w?:i -s'
The contest will be plaved over to- i
morrow at Fenway Park here. <
With one victory registered for the 1
Red Sox, Manager McGraw sent out
his star twirler, Mathewson, to cap- 1
ture the second game for the Giants.
Mathewson had been rested for about \
two weeks to win the first game he 1
; twirled, but tonight the Red Sox still j <
were happy because of their one vie-! <
tory and no game lost with the dread- j 1
ed Mathewson worn out with a hard-1 I
pitched eleven-inning tie game. j J
Tris Speaker, the Red Sox centrefielder,
furnished the dramatic climax
in the contest, where fortune played
tickle favor with first one and then ^
the other team. i
[ The ninth inning found the Red Sox \
| anu the Giants locked in a tie score :
I of 5 to 5. The Red Sox left-hander.'
Collins, had been driven from the box 1
in the eighth inning by a shower of 1
hits and Hall had been sent to relieve !
j him. Merkle smashed out a three-bag
i ger in the tenth inning and the home
club post was in gloom when he scored '
i . i
on a sacrifice hit.
! In the fading light it was difficult | 1
for th? Red Sox to follow.the course of 1
Mathewson's big drop and Xew York '
felt confident. Yerkes had been turned (
back and the big crowd looked to j >
Speaker. The trio of Giant outer-gar-1
deners moved far afield. Mathewson j <
wound up and turned loose a faiit in- j 1
shcot. Speaker gave a wicked swing;*
and the ball was sailing far over j 1
Becker's head in centre. Speaker 1
rounded first, then second, and raced <
to third. The ball caromed to Shafer,
who momentarily juggled it. Speaker <
hesitated .at third, then sped for the
plate and slid under Catcher Wilson, <
who fumbled Shafer's relay k throw, j <
That tied the score and the crowd went j <
wild. To make sure that he had touch-1
ed the plate Speaker returned and j j
touched the plate a second time before j j
Wilson recovered the ball. j i
Hit JTathewson Hard. j <t
i The Bostons took the lead in the' <
first inning and scored three runs by i <
| hitting Mathewson hard, but the j i
Giants, by peppering away at Collins's 11
delivery, picked up a run in the second i 1
and another in the fourth inning. Bos- i
I ton tallied another score in the fifth :
inning, but when Duffy Lewis dropped 1
Snodgrass's fly opening the eighth in- 1
ning New York started a batting rally 1
that caused Manager Stahl to hurry ;
Hall to Collins's relief. Three runs al- 1
ready were over the plate on an error, i
a single and two doubles. This gave j 1
New York a lead of one run. ! 1
The Giants held their lead but a '
moment, however, for the Red Sox at-. '
tacked Mathewson's drop curves sav- ^
agely, and aided by an error by j
Fletcher, the tieing run was sent over j 1
the plate. Then came the exciting, *
tenth with Merkle's hit and Speaker's 1
Fletcher was broken-heartened to-1 *
night over his poor game at short stop I
for New York. Two of his three glar-! J
.ing errors aided materially in making *
'runs by the Red Sox. (
Wagner starred at short stop for 11

throw that Stahl also took with one j
hand, nailed Fletcher at first base. ! ^
There was an unusual lot of base j 6
stealing in the game for a world's se-! ?
ries contest, five bases being pilfered. I
Of these Hooper stole two and Stahl (
one for the Red Sox, while Snodgrass i s
and Herzog each beat Carrigan's j
Hooper for the Red Sox knocked out ^
three hits, stole two bases, scored once
and gathered in three flies in the out- F
field. Murray and Herzog were the 1
heaw hitters for the Giants. Murray n
hammered out a single, a double and J F
a triple. Herzog also got a single, a v
two-baggfr, and a three-bagger, and
sent up a sacrifice fly opportunely, c
Mathewson did not issue a base on
