etc. I certainly did, and I ask him
/ again to explain why no one in South
Carolina can get a pardon unless he
applies to some of Blease's lawyer
friends. Unless all information obtainable
by .me is false, no man in
South Carolina need present an application
for pardon, unless one of his
pardon mongers' nas rwcivcu a. i&; wa
Blease is too good a lawyer to think
or believe that Ferguson's affidavit
will fool anybody into believing that
he had ever seen my letter to Ferguson
While I know nothing about Ferguson,
and never saw him," I do not believe
he swears to tjie exact truth. A man
can lie by suppressing the truth as

swear to almost anything.
While I am discussing railroad lawyers
and their influence on the South
Carolina general assembly, it is just
as well that I should make public all
that I said on the subject. Governor
Blease has quoted only a part of it. In i
a letter I wrote to Mr. P. B. Bailey,
at Blaney, South Carolina, August 16th,
replying to a resolution adopted by the
Blease club at that place relative to
rov letter to Mr. Sims. I said: i
"That the railroads are getting a
hold in our State again I know. The
legislature ought to compel the railroads
to give us the right, on any j
system or roads anywhere in the State .

to on the same mileage as is done in '
the North. But Ben Abney and the;
railroad attorneys in the legislature
have been too venal and corrupt to
protect tho people against the railroads,
and as I have already pointed
out, Blease is in closer touch with'
them than Jones; and Blease is on re-1
cord as saying the Southern Railway
will have a friend in me if elected."
I think it well that the people of the
State and the general assembly should
know what I think about th influence
the railroads have exerted in the leg

Vice Presidency is an Honor.
Christian Screiioe Monthly. <
The vice presidency of the United
States is a post of high honor and distinction,
and yet among men in public
life there is a feeling that the widely
known man who consents to accept the
office is abandoning opportunities of ;
srr^pter perferment. He is said to be
making a sacrifice. He is often pitied
piViftnlAd for nermitting I
anu uiivuva ? xvawv. ? ^ ^ _
himself to be "laid on the shelf." He
is spoken of as a "dummy."
He is regarded as one who has lost j
his place in the world of affairs. All:
this1 is nonsensical. It may be true the j
office of vice president, if the viewpoint
be entirely political; but, standing
upon its owm base, the vice presidency
is no empty honor and no sinecure.
It is something to be presiding
officer of the United States, senate. The
Viictnrv nf the r.ountrv\moreover, has j
demonstrated it to be something of!
great importance to be next in line to
