Covernor Blease to hold the ap

Richland county, the appoinitment of
Major Caldwell followed the recom
mendation of Ex-Attorney General

and dispasmonate statement. pour

between the executive and the ju

Governor Blease called me by tel
cphone about noon on Wednesday.
the lst instant. and, on my answer
ing. inquired if I would consent to
hold the term of the Court of Con
mon Pleas for Richland county, to
begin on Monday. the 6th instant.
I replied that I was willing to hold
that court. but adied that I would
not do so unless the appointment was
vcceptabl' to the local bar. To this
he replied trhat it was all right
cr to that effect: and after saving
some words by way o' kindly thought
of me. he ceased to speak. His man
ner indicated to my mind that he
wished only to ask if It would suit
me to hold the court. I was left
to conjecture. whether the bar of
Richland desired me. or whether they
desired some other person. I had
no means of knowing whether the
I-ar had taken any action. or wheth
tr the Justices of Supreme Court
had made a recommendntion to ap
point some one to hold the Court or
whether if that Court had applied
to. him to make an appointment, it
l'ad recommended any particular
person fer the appointment.
I wrote Governor Blease. very
soon, a letter. saying that I was
willing to hold the Court. provided.
either that the Bar of Richland de
sired m. or that they had :nade no
other choice. I was surprised to see
In the p:pers that I had been ar
pointed to hold that term of Coirt.
And I have been more surpr!sed to
read, in the papers that I have been
commissioned to preside in that
Court. Governor Blease is inaccu
rate in saying that I have been com
r--lssioned. The Secretary of State
sent me, by mail received yesterday
morning, the 2nd. a communication
to. the effect that I had been appoint
cd. and that on my sending to him
(the Secretary of State) the oath on
the back of his communication, made
ssecording to law and in proper
form, I should receive my commis

A few minutes after hearing Gov
Lirnor Blease over the telephone. I
wrotje a letter to R. W. Shand. Esq..
and a letter to P H. Nelson. Es-1..
both of the Columbia bar, in each of
wvhich letters I stated the terms on
which I woutd accept the appoint

Shand last night. I have not heard
from Mr. Nelson.
I wrote Chief Justice Jones a per
sonal lttter yesterday. He is at lib

may see fit.

that Mr. Ray had been selected by
the Bar of Richland to preside over
