The Legislature's Work.
A contemporary calls atten
tion to the fact that "the South
CarolinA legislature is now sit
tin." If it is sitting on Gov
ernor Blease it will do good
work for South Carolina.
If Go-r rior Cole L. Hiease
hadn't been a "dead one" al-11
ready, his message to the South a
Carolina Legislature this week 1<
vetoing the libel law passed up s
to him would have killed him. t

lcnown to issue from the govern- n
or of the state.-Albany Herald. '
If Blease Has a Grouch.
If Governor l'lease has a
grouch against the Columbia
State, there is no reason why
he should lambast the entire
press in order to vent his spleen.
Some of the papers have treated
