Hr In your issue of today you publish
W Gov. i.leuse's tirade o:' fault finding

notice of on'y twj points.
# Without the least solicitation or tiesire
on my part I was elected county
chairman 1 appreciate the honor and
will endeavor to give full and impartial
service. 1 regard the statement
that the county convention was "packed,"
if 1 understand the meaning of
the word, as utterly silly. The contention
was overwhelmingly anti-1
Please irom tie county ciuus, ana
Gov. Blease himself is responsible for
f raising the issue. Under the circum- t
stance, if the people of Newberry
I should prefer a populists or republiP
can to Blease they should not be cen-'
sured, the blame should attach to him.
The assertion that years ago I left
the Democratic party, and became he
leader of the populists in this State j
j'.nd was a candidate for office on the
populist ticket is an error. I have never
been a member of any political party
except the dem c-ratic party. 1 have
voted m every primary election 01 me
democratic party that has been held
in the State, and have almost continuously
represented my club on the!
Years ago when the low price of
cotton was driving our farmers almost jj
to despair I took an active part in the jj
farmers alliance?I did my utmost to
contribute to our relief?I was a member
of the State convention that sent;
'jeiegaies uit: i;uu?cui:uu j
The State convention adopted the
following resolutions: |
"We see with displeasure and apprehension
t'.iat the money changers
of wall street have invaded the sacred
temple of democracy/' * * "We assert
that Grover Cleveland does not represent
the principles of democracy ;
- i e ..-U A ^ o. i
as xauglll uy our lOi tJiauitri s, anu as
we understand them. We shall look
upon the nomination of Ex-President
Cleveland if forced upon our party by
the Chicago convention as a prostitu- j
tion of the principles of democracy, i
as a repudiation of the demands of the
farmers alliance and a surrender of j
the rights o: tlie people to the finan- j
cial kings of the country." When
Cleveland received the nomination I
refused to support him and with oth
ers organized an electoral ticket for
Weaver and Field who truly repre- '
seated the farmers alliance and the
democracy of South Carolina.
My narfie was on the ticket.
The executive committee o? New-i
berry cotnuy considered the status of
those wao opposed Cleveland with re- j
spect to t'-.e primary anJ tv.is resolu-1
tion was adopted by a vote of 15 to 5:
Resolved, T.:at any white man :
who subscribes to the constitution o:
the democratic party and signs a club
roll be entitled t; vote in the primary:
to be held on tne uytn June, ?
Gov Blease wa.s one of the fiftee'.?
A short time afterwards I was elected
\ in the democratic primary convention i
as a member of the constitutional convention.
And now it appears remarkable
that Mr. Blease sh'uld then .".lave
submitted to such a heinous offense ;
wit-out saying a word against it.
