Adjutant General Refuses to Pay Appropriation?Governor
f Criticises Gen. Jloore in Letht
t ter to Capatin of ComW
1 Columbia, July 17.?In a letter addressed
to Xorman S. Richards, commanding
the Liberty Hill military
company, Governor Blease today criticised
W. W. Moore, the adjutant general,
for , refusing to pay an appropriation
of $225 to the organization.
The chief executive says he does not
know of any redress until the primary
election of August, 1914.
Some time ago the adjutant general
refused to pay the Liberty Hill comtpany
an appropriation of $225, saying
that the organization had failed to
meet the requirements of the military
law. At a meeting of the military
board of the State, a majority resolution,
signed by the governor, Gen.
Wilie Jones and Col. Julius E. Cogs*

Moore to pay the money. This he refused
When asked for' a statement today,
Gen. Moore said that he was carrying
out the statutory law when he refused
.to pay the Liberty Hill company;
, that as a' sworn officer of the State
1 lie could not do otherwise.
I Got. Blease's Letter.
^ Governor Blease's letter follows:
"State of Soutai aCrolina,
1 "Executive Chamber,
"Columbia, S. C., July 17, 1913.
! "Capt. Norman S. Richards, Liberty
Hill, S. C.?Dear Captain: Your letter
of July 15 requesting that your company
be excused from encampment
"In reply I beg to say that your request,
under the circumstances, will
k be granted and your company is here-1
M hy excused from attending the en- j
^ campment at Anderson for this year.
"I hope, however, that you will get
i your boys together as often as you
fccan conveniently; have your drills
9 y?ur practices, so that when the 1
time comes for them to be inspected :
that everything will be found in first- j
class condition and that we will ex-!
_perience no further trouble.
"I regret that Gen. Moore does not
pay your company the money due
them. The board was unanimous in
X ,1 VlAtm if
declaring mat. yuu siiouiu. (
I with the exception of Gen. Moore. Of
" course, if he desires to set his judgment
up against all the balance, I do
not know of any redress until the
primary election of August, 1914.
k '.'Very respectfully,
W "Cols. L. Blease,
p "'Governor and Commander-in-Chief."
TILLMAN SAYS BLEASE IS TVROXG
Criticises Chief Executive of State For
Ordering Supervisors of Registration
to Register E?ery White
(Washington, July 16.?Referring to
[affairs in South Carolina, Senator
Tillman said today: "I notice that
Governor Blease has broken loose
again. He makes a misstatement to
speak mildly, and I feel compelled to
correct him. He went to Hendersonville
the other day and in a telegram
to the Columbia Record he is made
" t- 1 M
" 'Senator Tinman ruinea niznsen
with, the people of South Carolina in
Just tEe 'same~manner when he went
about lecturing instead of remaining
^ in Washington and attending to the
^ business in the senate.'
P "I have lectured very extensively
W throughout the country, but I ne^er
neglected any senatorial work to do
it, as the record will show. I do not
recall ever having left Washington
while the senate was in session ex?
J ~ n <-? n-7Qn Hmoo tr? /Iplivftl*
VCCUlUg ilflil Ct uuavu biutvw ?v v>v. ?
. lectures. Then I went to nearby
^ points which I could reach after the
I senate adjourned for the day, deliver
the lecture that night and return to
Washington the next morning. I have
received offers time and again to lecV
ture while congress was in session.
I But I always declined. I could have
l a*, tano r?f thnnsands nf dollars had
iliau^ va wmvuvm-?*~ _
I believed it right to do so.
Subtle and Canning*.
"Governor Blease has recently done
iwo Uings about which I want to say
l something. I have been amused at
ft the subtleness and cunning he has
shown in getting out of the militia
P mudclle. He double-somersaulted inl
stantly, and was so anxious to comr
ply with the requirements of the war
' department that he telegraphed his
f acquiescnce to the scretary's demands.
^.The mail was too slow for him.
"Another thing the governor has
done recently is the letter he wrote to
, the supervisors of registration order,
ing them premptorUy to register all
white men. His exact words are:
^'Let no white man be refused.'
B "I have examined the law carefully ,
to see just how far the supervisors
Bought to go, and I take the liberty of
advising tism to obey the law, the :
i strict letter of the law, and register
only men qualified under the law who
will take the oath required. That oath
is as follows:
" 'I do solemnly swear (or affirm)
that I am a male citizen of this State
and of the United State; that I am 21
years of age or more, that ! have re
i sided in this State for two years, and
I in this county for one year, and in
the polling precinct in which I apply
: to be registered and in which I will
j offer to vote if registered for four
j months, and that I have not been conj
victed of burglary, arson, obtaining
goods or money under false pretences,
! perjury, forgery, robbery, bribery,
adultery, bigamy, wife-beating, housebreaking,
receiving stolen goods,
; breach of trust with fraudulent in
; tent, fornication, sociomy, incest, assault
with intent to ravish, miscegena1
tion, larceny or crimes against the
Might Cause Illegal Toting.
"I am very anxious to have all
white men who can take the above
oath register, and thus be able to fulfill
their duties as citizenl But it
will be a fearful blunder and crime
for anybody in South Carolina to lay
the foundation or g've excuse for the
house of representatives or the seni
at of the United States to throw our
a senator or congressman elected from
South Carolina because of illegal registration.
The republicans are not
now in power and the danger is not
as great as it once was. But even a
Democratic senate and a Democratic
house cannot afford to tolerate anyi
thing smacking of illegality or iraua. |
"The law as it stands now requires
the people to elect senators by direct
vote, and I do not want to see South
Carolina jerked up for illegal voting.
Until we get our primary law amended
by the legislature so as to remove
all possibility of the charges of fraud
and bribery in the primary, we cannot
afford to take any chances.
An Opportunity For Blease.
"If Governor Blease will exert himself
to see that the legislature at its
next session passes a reasonable and
? A J
just law to insure nonesiy ana iairness
in our primary, all will be well.
I want to empnasize :his, and-1 say it
with all due solemnity.
"If money buys the next senatorship
in South Carolina, as it may do, and
as it is charged it has done in the
recent congressional race in the 1st
district, I will feel compelled to object
to the seating of.any man sent
here with a tainted title.
"I join with Governor Blease in urg- j
ing our people to register. While it
may be straining a construction of the
law in any other than a general election
year for supervisors to go to
places away from the court house in
each county, I can see no harm in
that. They are permitted and can go j
to any place they see fit for the meagre
salaries they receive. But every
good citizen ought to see to it that
no illegal reg-istracicn is permitted,
because as things are now in South
Carolina, illegality, dishonesty, or
fraud, either in the primary or in the
general election, will prove very dangerous.
Every fairminded man wants
honesty and fair play, and every patriot
will abide the result of an election
so conducted whether his side
loses or wins."
