.Smith and 31. L. Smith Among
Filbert, August 1.?The annual Filbert
picnic today, which was attended
by fully 7,500 people, was a big success.
The meeting was featured by
the declaration of Governor Blease
that he is "hands on' in we guoer-1
natorial race; an attack on the State
senate by Representative Geo. R.
Rembert and his charge that Tillman
"deserted" when he made his famous
address to the people last summer, in
which he repudiated Governor Blease;
a slap at the State senate by Railroad
Commissioner Richards for failure to
pass the flat two-cent mileage bill,

The crowd present wa^ representative
not only of York, but of adjoining
counties and some came from North
In spite of the intense heat the]
great company of men and women J
listened patiently while the candi- !
dates for governor held their preliminary
skirmish. The absence of
United States Senator E. D. Smith
was regretted, n? sent a letter tu
the chairman stating that important
measures, the tariff and currency legislation,
held him in Washington.
Letters of regret were also read from
R. I. Manning, of Sumter, and John
G. Clikscales, of Spartamburg, both of
whom are candidates for governor and
who were among those invited. Each
of the speakers was given the best
of attention and accorded a complimPTitflrv
Blease is "Hands Off."
Governor Blease appeared to be
the favorite. His speech came last
in the afternoon, a threatening rain
storm cuiting it short. He told the
crowd that he was "hands off" in the
race for governor. He stated that
he did not think John L. McLaurin
had been treated right in politics in
the State, that George R. Rembert al..
s ways had been and still is his friend;
that John G. Richards had been absolutely
so in last summer's cam?
- - , I
paign; that C. A. Smith was, too, ana
the people ought to treat him right;
that the record of XL L. Smith was
shown in the legislature journals;
complimented Charles Carroll Sims,
of Barnwell, and declared he was
hands off in the gubernatorial race.
The governor told the people that if
"his successor was not one who wjuld
osrrv on* thp nnlio.ies of the Deonle
that from the time of the primary until
he gave up office to take his seat
in the United States senate, "he would
turn them loose so fast that there
would be devilish few left," referring
to the matter of granting pardons.
All of these statements brought yells
from the crowd.
Congressman Flnley Speaks.
The meeting was held in the grove
at Filibert and was under the auspices
of the local camp, Woodmen of
tie World. County Supervisor John
E. Carroll, presiding. The band from
Tirzah furnished music. It was 11
o'clock when Chairman Carroll called
the meeting to order and introduced
State Senator J. E. Beamguard,
> w&o made the address of welcome.
He was followed by Congressman D.
E. Finley, who made a short talk on
national issues, predicting great good
to the people from the passage of the
tariff bill. Mr. Finley said he be
lieved currency igisianon woiuu gu
N through. He lauded the democratic
party and rapped republican senators
for trying to call down Postmaster
General Burleson in carrying out the
extension in the parcel post.
McLaurin Leads Off.
Senator John L. McLaurin led off
the gubernatorial speakers, talking
for the greater part on his cotton
warehouse scheme. He rapped what
he said is the present method of referring
to any public office-holder or
seeker as a politician in a sneerinr
manner and defined the true meaning
of the term, saying that from the
present use of this term "there are
no statesman except dead politicians."
Ke referred to political policies of 20
years a4go and of the leaders as
fc men with great vision and claimed
r that politics of the present democratic
administration were but embodying
many of those ideas which he lauded.
The senators gave a full exposition
of his views of State-owned and
operated warehouses for agricultural
products. In the course of his remarks
he referred with approval to an
edition in the News and Courier on
the subject of the proposed tax on
contracts for future delivery, saving,
if it was paid, it would come out of
the cotton grower, as every expense,
from gin house to the factory, was
deducted from the price paid the
planter. The way to do, he said, was

Rembert Appears Confident.
Representative George R. Rembert
announced that he was going to succeed
Cole. L. Blease as governor of
South Carolina. He attacked the newspapers
bitterly; denounced the corporations,
especially the Southern
Power company; charged the State
senate witia killing his water-power
tax bill by listening to corporation
lawyers; retiterated 'his intention of

being great tax dodgers: sad the senate
was not serving the people. He
declare! auf w his fp ri-1 ii for Governor
Blease, but said he did not ask
for his endorsement in his race for
governor for two reasons. First, hecause
the governor had his own
fight to make for the senate, and se
cond, because he wanted the office on
his own merits. He denounced the
attempt which he said is being made
to bring about a break between him
and the governor; ridiculed any
"peace and unity" candidates, and,
said he, gloried in being a factional j

Southern, Power Company had tried
to threaten Senator Hough, of Kershaw,
by saying if the bill was passed
they would not develop a certain !
water-power site near his county. He
said he was going to introduce a resolution
in the next legislature, giving
them one year to develop this
site or revoke all their charters and
rights to every site in the State.
He rapped -the investigation into
the primary last summer and declared
his intentions of introducing a bill

Richards on Mileage Fisrht.
After an intermission of one hour
for dinner, Railroad Commissioner
John G. Richards, Jr., announced his
candidacy for governor. He discussed
the mileage fight; told of his efforts
for a flat 2-cent passenger rate,
the work of the railroad commission
in giving lower freight and exnress
rates than ever before and of his indignation
when he discovered a negro
man on a Pullman car at Rock Hill,
and of his efforts to get the federal
authorities to put a stop to this. He
mentioned that he introduced a bill
calling for separate Pullman coaches
for the races when in the legislature
some ten years ago but said the rail
road lawyers convinced the committee
this was a matter of interstate
regu!atinn and it was killed.

The general prevalence of good feeling
and entire absence of any bitterness
from last summer's campaign,
coupled with an increasing interest
in politics, was noticeable from mingling
with the people.

FIGHTS THE DEPUTIES
BUT LOSES HER CHILD
MRS. ZACHRY DEFIES ORDER OF
Georgia Decree fjilield?Zacliry Departs
With Daughter Wrested
From Mother's Hands.
The State, 2nd.
Because Mary W. Zachrv defied an |
order of Judge Ernest Gary, awarding
her daughter, Frances Zachrv, a
little girl 3 years of age, to her husband,
Julian J. Zachry. said :* hfc a
well known attorney and business
man of Augusta, four Richland county
deputies working under the direction
of Sheriff McCain were yesterday
forced to tear the child from her
arms in the court room. Mrs. Zachry
j fought the deputies, saying that she
| would die before she would give up
' the Tittle girl. She was finally over!
powered by the officers and a stranger
| standing nearby grabbed the child and
| hurrying across the court room handed
her to Julian J. Zachry. He rushed
i v .
down the back stairway and jumping
i into an automobile sped down SumI
ter street, accompanied by one of his
attorneys. It was said that he proceeded
to Augusta by automobile. The !
mother, weeping, left the court room
with her mother, Mrs. Ella J. HalliI
.lan, and went to her boarding house
on Gervais street.
Augusta Decree Upheld.
Following a hearing, the following
order was signed by Judge Ernest!
"This ciatter comes before me upon
a writ of habeas corpus, nereioiore
issued by me upon the petition of
Julian J. Zachry, claiming that he is
entitled to the possession and custody
of his two children, Frances Zachry
and Mildred Zachry, and asking that
the court restore to him at this time
the custody ar.d control of the child
"In responce to the writ, Mary W.
Zachry appeared and produced the
bodies of the children and made return
to the writ.
"Afur hearing counsel for both petitioner
and respondent, I am of the
opinion that the petitioner is entitled
to the possession of the chldren asv
prayed for in his petirion.
"It is therefore ordered, decreed
and adjudged tint the custody of the
chil'J, Frances Zachry, be, and hereby
J is, committed to the petitioner, Julian
J. Zacbry. Let all the papers usea at j
this hearing be filed with the elerk of
Bond Not Allowed.
When the order had been signed, attorneys
for Mrs. Zachry nr.ade a motion
to allow her to give bond and
appeal the case to the South Carolina
s.ipreme co?irt. This motion was re-!
fused by Judge Gary, who held that]
the intent of habeas corpus would be
thereby destroyed. Ruling on this
poi ;t, Judge Gary said that he knew
of no authority by which Mrs. Zachry
could be allowed to keep the children
in custody pending a final setttlement
o> the suit in the supreme court.
Several day<? ago the two children
were awarded to Julian J. Zachry by
the Richmond county court at Augusta.
Following the decision of that
court. Mi^. Zachry fled to South Carolina,
decla^ng that she would never

return to tne ueorgia cny, juu-au u.
Zacb:y came to Columbia and retained
counsel. Last Wednesday he brought
habeas corpus proceedings. Attorneys
for Mis. Zachry asked that time be
given in which to make reply. The
hearing was set for yesterday morning
at 10 o'clock.

supreme court from the decision of
the superior court, awarding the children
to the father, and that the circuit
court of South Carolina had 110
right to decide the case until a final
decision schould be given in Georgia
Attorneys for Mr. Zachry held that
the appeal in the Georgia courts did I
not supersede the case pending in this
State. "The appeal does not act as |
a supersedeas," said Hamilton Phinizy |
of Augusta, attorney for Mr. Zachry.
He further stated that it was "absurd
to think that the filing of an appeal
acted as a supersedeas."
"I don'* know vhai course we will
take," said Frank G. Tompkins, one
01 the attorneys for Mrs. Zachry.

WITH OLD.THTF WARMTH
t'liarels Hart, Esq., Charges Senior
Senator With Making Statements
Without Foundation About

Washington, Aug. 3?'Senator Tillman
was very much aroused yesterday
by the receipt of a letter from a
New Yorker charging him with making
statements without foundation in
1 iaci aoout tne Dangers 01 me meiroI
polis. The senator answered with old]
time warmth, and then gave the correspondence
to the press. The letters
are as follows:
"Brooklyn, N. Y., Aug. 1, 1913.
"The Hon. B. R. Tillman?Dear Sir:
If you would only get some information,
as to the condition of the money
markets of the world, which almost
any office boy in any banking house
in Washington can give you, you
wmilri malrp fhp rmiarks von ?
are credited as having made against,
the banks of New York city. It only
hurts the Democratic party and makes
the average voter ashamed to see
those in the senate so little informed.
Xew York city can stand almost all
the stuff uttered in the senate by
those that do not seem to know what
they are talking about. I suppose j
Xew York city is responsible for crop
failures, floods, etc. If Secretary McAaoo
cannot prove the charges he has
made, he should be tarred and feathered
and driven out of Washington.
I fenr he is indulging too freshly in
lirape juice to do this country much
good. I am a Democrat and ashamed
of Henry and others who introduce
resolutions for political effect, beingtie
means of making trouble, but I1
never expect my party to be in power
again for the next twenty years to
i come. It was our Republican oppo
nents that elected Wilson, ana tney,
like all conservative Democrats, have

I have your letter of August 1, and I
am really surprised that you should

the crass ignoramus you think me to
be. You New Yorkers are the most
egotistical asses I have ever seen or
heard of. You think the sun, moon
! and stars revolve around New York
and you alone are entitled to any
(consideration. You forget thst the
farmers of the United States grow the
great crops which have produced the
commerce which makes New York the
imperial city it is. You also know,
you can find out if you do no know,
that the Republican par:y, ever since
the war, has systematically robbed
the people to enrich the favored classes;
and that New York city itself
through Wall street manipulations
and favoritism to national banks has
grown fat and wealthy at the expense

Ready to Take Advantage.
"You flippantly say: 'I suppose New
oYrk city is responsible for crop failures,

York city is not responsible for crop
failures or floods; but New York city
is on the watch to take advantage 01
everything that occurs to depress the
pries of farm products when it is to
her advantage to buy them; and ma- 1
uipulates the cotton market by selling
hundreds of millions of bales o?
futures at prices below the cost of
production in order that her scoundrelly
brokers shall wax fat. New
York, under the Republicans, has beer,
the favored seat of the money power.
Her bankers have manipulated and
managed the United States treasury <
in Washington. Millions and millions
of dollars of government f'inds :

mule which was killed, too, had its
head on the negro's leg, showing that
neither of them moved after falling

the place where they were found and
was struck during the same storm.

HELD ON FOUR CHARGES
WILL ISSUE REQUISITION FOR
Zacliry Came to Columbia and Took
Child From Mrs. Zachry Under
Special to The Herald and News.
Columbia, .August 4.?The readers
of The Herald and News are doubtless
familiar with the story of the flight
of Mrs. Julian J. Zachry from Augusta,
Ga., into this State, with her
twc children, the oldest of which is
three years of age, in order to keep
from surrendering her children to her
husband, a lawyer, of Augusta, under
a decision of a Georgia court. The*
judge who rendered the decision
characterized the law under which
he acted as "bartybarous."
Zachry came to Columbia on Friday,
and in habeas corpus proceeding before
Judge Ernest Gary, in C y
Dia, was awaraea me eider cnnu.
Zachrv refused to surrender
child, and it was taken from her
j the court room by Sheriff McCain*
i with the assistance of deputies. The -?
chlM was rushed by the father into a
waiting automobile and taken to
Georgia?to the home of Zachry's
mother, at Harlem, in Columbia countv,
it is reported.
Governor Blease had told Mrs.
Via nrvf Virvnrvt* ?a rofinici.
j u*. ?? v/uiu uv/w uunv: a *
tion for her return to Georgia without
giving her a full and complete
hearing. The governor was out of
the city at Filbert, in York county,
on the day of the ha.beas corpus hearing
before Judge Gary.
After his return io the city, Governor
Blease on Saturday night wired
Governor Slaton, of Georgia, asking
him to hold Zachry as a. fugitive from.
it. A a /N C + Vk ? ? O + y- A P ATTAy
Iue justice ui tins oiaic, auu uuvcinor
Slaton replied that he had directed
the Georgia sheriffs to hold
Zachry, pending requisition from
Statement by Blease.
Governor Blease this mornfng made
i the following statement in regard to
I the matter:
"On yesterday, when I returned to
the city, application was made to me
for requisition for Julian Zachry
charged with violatng Section 167, oi
the criminal code, of this State, which
prescribes a punishment not exceeding
imprisonment for thirty days or
a fine not exceeding $100; also with
violating section 166. of said code,
whic\2 prescribes a punishment of not
j less than $200 nor more than $!,000,
j or imprisonment not exceeding two
i years, or both, at the discretion of the
j court; also with violating Section
! 697 of said code, which prescribes a
I punishment for a term not exceeding
one year or a fine not exceeding $200;
also with the crime of kidnapping, under
the common law, for which there
is provided a very severe punishment.
"After investigating the matter I
became thoroughly convinced that Ju
I lian Zacliry was guilty of each of the
offences i-barged, as sworn to by his
wife, Mary W. Zachry> and I am satisfied
that if he is brought back to
South Carolina and carried before a
fair and impartial judge, whose mind
has not been clouded from whiskey
drinking, and an impartial jury of
?his State, that he will spend many of
his days to come where he ought to
| be?in the South Carodlina State pen
"After receiving the affidavits and
making the investigation, I wired
Governor Slaton, of Georgia, as follows:
" 'Please have sheriff of Richmond
