AT FILBERT IN YORK
I>LEASE SAYS HE IS HANDS OFF
IN GOYEltfOK'S K.Ufc.
3IcLaurin, Kemfoert, Richard, C. A.
Smith and 31. L. Smith Among
Filbert, August 1.?The annual Fil~
bert picnic today, which was attended
by fully 7,500 people, was a big success.
The meeting was featured by
rno Ho^iaratinn nf fi-overnor Blease
that he is ''hands off" in the gubernatorial
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,
and an ovation given the governor.
The crowd .present was, 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
listened patiently while the candi- ;
dates for governor held their preliminary
skirmish. The absence of
United States Senator E. D. Smith
was regretted. Hp sent a letter to
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 Spartanburg, both of
whom are candidates for governor and
who were among those invited. Each j
of the speakers was given the best
of attention and accorded a complimentary
Blease is *Hands Off."
Governor Blease appeared to be
the favorite. His speech came last
in the afternoon, a threatening rain
storm cutting 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
- ? - ^ . I
. ways naa Deen ana sun is ms uieuu,
that John G. Richards had been absolutely
so in last summer's campaign;
that C. A. Smith was, too, and
the people ought to treat him right;
that the record of M. L. Smith was
shown in tie 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 would
carry out the policies of the people
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.
rnnoTMsmAn FfnlAV Sneaks.
The meeting was held In the grove
at Filihert 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,
fw&o made tne aaaress 01 w^tuuic.
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 believed
currency lgislation would go
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
f for the greater part on his cotton
warehouse scheme. He rapped what
lie 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."
He referred to political policies of 20
years a4go and of the leaders as
ft men with great vision and claimed
F 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, ne saia, was
to give cotton a stable price like the
coffee growers of Brazil get, then
there would be no bulls and bears,
and the exchanges would serve their
legitimate purpose as the coffee exchanges
were now doing all over the
world. If you get a doctor, he said,
who can't diagnose the case, he is apt
to give you the wrong medicine and

Representative ueorge rv. xvemue.n
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
lawvers; retiterated 'his intention of
reintroducing it and his newspaper
bill; charged the corporations with
being great tax dodgers: sad the senate
was not serving the people. He
declare! anfw his fr t for Governor
Blease, but said he did not ask
for his endorsement in,his race for
governor for two reasons. First, because
the governor had his own
fight to make for the senate, and second,
because he wanted the office on
his own merits. He denounced tne
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
.Mr. Rembert declared that the
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 recnlntinn
in the next lezislature. ffiv
ing 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
to make it a penalty of one year imprisonment
and a fine of $500 to try
and buy a voter, half of the fine to
go to the informer, declaring this
would get the rich man, whom he
charged with being guilty of most of
Richards on Mileage Fierlit.
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 Piving lower freight and exnress
rates than ever before and of his indignation
when he discovered a negro
man on a rnuman car ai nous mu,
and of his efforts to get the federal
authorities to put a stop to this. Hr
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 railroad
lawyers convinced the committee
this was a matter of interstate
regu!ation and it was killed.

From Mother's Hands.
The State, 2nd.
Because Mary W. Zachry defied an
order of Judge Ernest Gary, awarding
her daughter, Frances Zachry, a
little girl 3 years of age, i:o her husband,
Julian J. Zachry. ss.id f bl/ a
well known attorney and business
raan of Augusta, four Richland county
deputies working under the direction
of Sheriff McCain were yesterday
i forced to tear the child from her
zirms in the court room. Mrs. Zachry
lought the deputies, saying that she
would dfe before she would give up
! i.he Tittle girl. She was finally overI
powered by the officers and a stranger
| standing nearby grabbed the child and
| hurrying across the court room hand!
ed her to Julian J. Zachry. He rushed
! down the back stairway and jumping
I into an automobile sped down Sum!
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. Hallihan,
and went to her boarding house
on Gervais street.
Augusta Decree Upheld.
Following a hearing, the following
order was signed by Judge Ernest
"This natter comes before me upon
o T*.'rit nf v,?ihpa>: nornns. heretofore
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 and control of the child
"In responce to the writ, Mary W.
Zachry appeared and produced the
bodies of the children and made recurri
to the writ.
"Af'fci- hearing counsel for both pe
titioner and respondent, I am of the
opinion that the petitioner is entitled
to the possession of the chldren as'
prayed for in his petlrion.
"Jt is therefore ordered, decreed
and adjudged tint the custody of the
chil-j. f ranees Zachry, be, and hereby
is, commuted to the petitioner, Julian

torneys for Mrs. Zachry made a motion
to allow her to give bond and
appeal the case to the South Carolina
supreme coiirt. This motion was refused
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 settlement
of the suit in the supreme court.
Several day* ago the two children
were awarded to Julian J. zacnry Dy
:he Richmond county court at Augusta.
Following the decision of that
cour*. Mi?. Zachry fled to South Carolina,
declar*ng that she would never
return to the Georgia city, Julian J.
Zachiy 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 *ras set for yesterday morning
at 10 o'clock.
The general defense of the attorneys
for Mrs. Zachry was that an appeal
had been filed with the Georgia
supreme court from the decision of
the superior court, awarding the children
to the father, and that the circuit
court of South Carolina had no
I right to decide the case until a final

Attorneys for Mr. Zachry held that
the appeal in the Georgia courts did
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."

WITH AT.n.TIlTF W A RUTH.
Charels Hart, Esq., Charares Senior
Senator With Making Statements
Without Foundation About
New York Bankers.
Washington, Aug. 3.?'Senator Tillman
was very much aroused yesterday
by the receipt of a letter from a
New Yorker charging him with mak
nig statements wunout iounuation 111
fact about the bankers of the metropolis.
The senator answered with oldj
time warmth, and then gave the correspondence
to the press. The letters
are as follows:
"Brooklyn, X. Y., Aug. 1, 1913.
"The Hon. B. R. Tillinan?De?r Sir:
If you would only get some information,
as to t'ae condition of the money
markets of the world, which almost
iiiiv nffipo hrtv in ??nv hankircr hnnsP
in Washington can give you, you
vvould never make the remarks you
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.
New York city can stand almost all
' :he stuff uttered in the senate by
those that do not seem to know what
they are talking about. I suppose
Xew York city is responsible for crop
failures, floods, etc. If Secretary Mc
Aaoo cannot prove tne cnarges ne nas
made, he should be tarred and feathered
and driven out of Washington.
I fenr he is indulging too freshly in
"grape juice to do this country much
good. I am a Democrat and ashamed
of Henry and others who introduce
resolutions for political effect, being
tie means of making trouble, but I
never expect my party to be in power
again for the next twenty years to

nents that elected Wilson, and they,
like all conservative Democrats, have
got their full.

Place, Brooklyn, X. Y.?My Dear Sir:
I have your letter of August 1, and I
am really surprised that you should
he so insolent to a stranger. I am not
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 that 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 nna out 11 you uo liu ivultw,
that the Republican party, 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
of the South and West.
Ready to Take Advantage.

Child From Mrs. Zachry l"uder
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 olJest 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
VUctXilCLtl'lieU LUC law UUUC1 v?uivu
he acted as "barb<barous."
Zachry came to Columbia on Friday,
and in habeas corpus proceedings bet
fore Judge Ernest Gary, in Columbia,
was awarded the elder child. Mrs.
Zachry refused to surrender the
child, and it was taken from her in
the court room by Sheriff McCain,
with the assistance of deputies. The
chiM was rushed by the father into a
waiting automobile and taken to
Georgia?to the home of Zachvy's
mother, at Harlem, in Columbia countv,
it is reported.
| Governor Blease had told Mrs.
Zachry he would not honor a requisii
tion for her return to Georgia without
giving her a full and complete
t hearing. The governor was out of
the city at Filbert, in York county,
on the day of the habeas corpus hear
ing oerore judge liary.
After his return to the city, Governor
Blease on Saturday night wired
Governor Slaton, of Georgia, .asking
him to hold Zachry as a fugitive from
the justice of this State, and Governor
Slaton replied that he had directed
the Georgia sheriffs to hold
Zachry, pending requisition from
Statement by Blease.
Governor Blease this mornihg made
the following statement in regard to
"On yesterday, when I returned to
I the city, application was made to me
for requisition for Julian Zachry
charged with violatng Section 167, 01
the criminal code, of this State, which
prescribes a punishment not exceedj
ing imprisonment for thirty days or
o fino nM ?100! also with
a liXiv UVt VAVVVU1M0 Y"v v I _____
; violating section 166. of said code,
which prescribes a punishment of not
loss than $200 nor more thai. $1,000,
or imprisonment not exceeding two
years, or both, at the discretion of the
court; also with violating Section
697 of said code, which prescribes a
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 Julian
Zacliry was guilty of each of the
offences charged, 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 penitentiary.
"After receiving the affidavits and
making the investigation, 1 W u cu
Governor Slaton, of Georgia, as follows:
" 'Please have sheriff of Richmond
or Columbia county, in one of whicn
party may be located, arrest and hold
Julian Zachry, who is charged with
several violations of the criminal
code of this State, and has fled from

are honored by the governor of Georgia,
