News and Courier, 12th.
"I propose to deal with the City
Charleston for the next two years ju
as I have done for the past ninete<
or twenty months, and to let Charle
ton do as Charleston pleases."
These words were spoken by Go
ternor Cole. L. Blease last night fro
an open-air platform at the Schuetze:
platz to a crowd of about 1,000 peop
who cheered the statement lustily,
few minutes later, the governor sait
"I \>,? w w<j you and to all <
South Carolina that there will be r
change so far as the State governmei
is concerned in the officials inxChars
of Charleston, and there will be notl
ing done than can make any man fee
that his home will not be inviolate an
safe from forced entrance."
The friends of Governor Blease i
this city took advantage of the occ<
sion last night to present to the goy
ernor a handsome diamond ring as
token of their regard, and there wei
several speeches in addition to the
of the governor. Mr. J. V. Wallac<
president of the Charleston Count
Blease club, presided. There wei
many prominent Charlestonians o
The first speaker was Mr. Georg
Lunz, who introduced Governc
Blease. Mr. Lunz spoke briefly, tel
ing the people how glad he was to ir
troduce Governor Blease as the go-*
iernor-elect, as lie had done on thi
date two years before. He said h
knew* all the people would obey an
respect Cole. L. Blease as governor c
the State, "as good a governor as an;
in" South Carolina for many years.
Mr. Lunz spoke of the difficulties un
der which Governor Blease made hi
campaign. He said that Governo:

loud cheering. After expressing his
pleasure at being in Charleston, h

"I have always felt that you should
have the right and the privilege of
caring for yourselves as you thought
fcest. While I was in the legislature,
I always voted for and stood for the
interests of Charleston. Now there
are some people in Charleston who
' think that they are particularly IT.' I
propose to show them during the next
two years that as far as the governor's
office is concerned they are particularly
He added that there were some people
in Charleston who thought- that
any one who came from above TenMile
Hill was a countryman. He said
that this element was not fit to appreciate
the advantages of home rule
properly. He then made the fctate
ment that he proposed to let Charleston
do as Charleston pleased, and added
that he did not say this because he
wanted the people here to do anything
lawless or not to obey the laws
of the State, but because he felt that
this city was peculiarly situated and
laws which might be just and good
for other sections of the State might he
hardships for Charleston.
Charleston has' great opportunities
ahead of her, said Governor Blease. In
a short time the city would have the
greatest military display that had ever
been seen in this section of th2* nation.
Council had invited the State
militia to take part and, as commander-in-chief
of the National Guard of
the State, he proposed to do everything
in his power to have all the men
of the militia come here and enjoy
themselves and help in entertaining
the men of the United States fleet.
When the Panama Canal is opened,
he said, the people of Charleston
should lay aside a]l personal feeling
and ambition and unite in an effort to
bring prosperity to Charleston. There
were great things in store for the city
if the people would do this. Governor
Blease spoke oi the big increase in
the city's real estate during the last
two years and said that Charleston
was ?nore prosperous now than two
years ago. He said that one of the
things which had aided to bring this
about was the feeling of security of
the people coming into the city that
they would be allowed real home government.
All conditions were favorable
for the city's prosperity. He said

and added that some people had remarked
that he had threatened Charleston
and that because Charleston
had not given him a majority he
would do various things to the city.
"I thank God that I am too much of i
a man to allow such petty feelings to

l fripn^c hpMnse of the ingratitude of
some people for whom I have done !
more than for many of those who sup- j
ported me in this campaign."
Governor Blease then dealt with the !
1 general election and urged every man j
j'to get out and vote for George S. Le-j
| gare, saying that they had a congress- '
i man who deserved every vote in the
j district. He warned them that in the
' peculiar political situation in the
j country there might be a contest for |
I Mr. Legare's seat, and that it, by'

He also urged every man to get out
and vote for Wilson, although, be said,
he believed that In nominating Wilson
'bv? Democrats had chosen their weakest
man, and that Harmon would have
hid an overwhelming victory. He said
tr.at as a Democrat he was earnest in

j ;In answer to a question from some-;
| one in the crowd Governor Blea-se said:
"I take- it for granted that every one
'in Charleston is going to vote for Tom
Peeples, so that I haven't said
anything about it. If you want injunctions
vote for the man who has been
landing them out."
"I want every man in Charleston to [
tnnu- ho said "that- he ran rest easv I
and rest assured of the fact that his
"home is his castle- and that as long as
I am governor no man can invade it."
A little later he said:
"When there are any offices to he
given out down here, they are going
'strictly to Blease Tien. And if any
:'one is recommended to me and he is
i not a Blease man, he will never carry |
! a commission with my name on it."
But, he said, he wanted it understood
that when it was a question of j

He then spoke of the things he had;
to overcome in his campaign and said
that though much money had been furnished
to debauch the voters and that
even some of the preachers fought
against him, J2,000 people had desig
nated mm as tneir choice.
He said he wanted every man to feel
that he was protected by the law and
that, as a citizen of South Carolina
the governor's office -was wide open to
him. If any one had any complaint
to make or favor to ask, he should j

After the applause had subsided, Mr.
Joseph Fromberg presented Governor
Blease with a very handsome diamond
ring, speaking in part as follows:
"You governor, started your campaign
for re-election almost alone, as
Xapoleon was when he first landed on ;
that memorable occasion, but no soon- j
er was your voice heard on the hust- j
nigs; no souner uiu you start yum- ag- j
gressive campaign, beginning with the)
famous Bishopville speech; no sooner i
did the people of South Carolina have j
the opportunity of listening to your \
golden-tongued oratory and of beholding
your captivating personality then ]
they flocked to your standard of victory
and swept all obstacles from their
path. We agree with you that yours j
was the greatest political victory tnatj
South Carolina or the world ever wit-;
nessed, and while Charleston county j
is not fortunate enough to count it- j
self among the many counties who j
contributed majorities to your election, i
