One fellow in Spartanburg
county has enough confiden:e
in Judge Jones to bet $100 that
he will carry that county.
It is noticeable that the Blease
Organs had very little comment
on the Jones landslide at the
county conventions all over the
State last week.
Straws show the way the wind
blows. The 247 delegates for
Jones to 51 for Blease in the
State convention show that the
Judge has a fghting chance.
Judge Jones' county conven
tion (Lancaster) endorsed Sen.
Tillman for reelection, but Gov.
Blease's convention (Newberry)
did not mention his name.

It is often difficult to make the

In this country we iknow noth

paratively speaking,of the teach
ings, practices and corruption
of the Roman Catholic church;
and it is for this reason that
men cannot realize or feel .the
approaching danger. If Mr.
Hester, and others thinking as
he does, will devote some time
and means to inform themselves
as to what the Catholic church~
is, what it will do for the people
and the inroads it is making in~
America, they would not be

lifare making desperate
efforts to have their way. They
have unlimited wealth and are
using this to fasten their deadly
fangs in the hearts of the people
by offering them free schools.
They say to people, why pay
taxes to send your boy to school
when you can send them to our
schools free of charge, and un
suspecting parents are frequent
ly caught with the bait. The
Catholics also make it a point to
plant their schools just as near

schools in the South known as

the Catholics have already be

ness and influence of these in

close by. Near the Fruitland
school, in North Carolina, they
have opened a school and offer
ed free tuition. What is their
object? To tear down Christian
--schools. If they succeed with
this one, they will try another,
and by degrees, and leech like,
will sap the vitality of religious
* liberty. Who dares not become
alarmed when they now have
representatives in congress, in
legislatures, the governor's
chair, on the supreme court
bench, and in almost every po

be alarmed when a Cardinal, a
creature of the Pope, is looked
upon by so-called Christians and
liberty loving men as the great

The fol'owing is that portion
of the interview with the gov- (
ernor appearing in The Herald I
yesterday morning to which ex
Gov. Evans refers:
The zovernor referred to thi; I
item in the Charleston News I
and Courier's Columbia corre- t
A gentleman here yesterday
who attended the Spartanburg t
convention and is a strong friend
of Judge Jones', said of the re- I
suits of their convention: 'We
had everything our own way
and we made the Bleasites hang
their heads. Judge Jones will I
carry Spartanburg county by at
least 2,000 majority.'"
Gov. Blease commented on
this item thus:
"I asked Mr. Caldwell, the
News and Courier's correspon
dent, who the gentleman from
Spartanburg was, and he an
sweied that it was John Gary
Evans, as I had supposed."
What the Reporters Say
Columbia, May 11.-W. F.
of the Charleston News and
Courier, tonight gave out the
following statement denying the
statement mads by Gov. Blease:
"On Thursday lat Governor
Blease, in his outer office, in the
presence of W. A. Taylor, of
The Record; R. H. Rowe, of the
Atlanta Journal, and myself,
his. stenographer and private
secretary also being present,
asked me if John Gary Evans

which was printed in the News
and Courier relative to the pre
many of the largest and most
influential newspapers in the
United Sta-es are controlled by

largely under their domination,
and every paper which opposes
the policy of Rome or endeavors
to enlighten the people upon
their nefarious practices and
principles is shut out from news
stands and its circulation crip
pled in every way possible.
We ask Mr. Hester and others
who are not alarmed to consider
the following, attributed to1
the Catholic World, a Catholic~

is the Catholic to use his vote
for? First, to secure Catholic

to control legislation, which is

Some of the thoughts brought

He defined the indifferent citi

the Christian, the cultured man
and those who can not be bribed.
"Civic apathy is most prevalent
among that very element of
citizens who is most essential
to the maiLntenance of public
purity and a high standard of
citizenship." It is not~ the ig
norant, selfish and corrupt, but
the good, respectable, well
meaning men who neglect their
civic duties. "Indifference to
civic responsibility can not be
justified. The real reason for it
is that men are too deeply en
grossed in private pumsui-s to
discharge their civic duties. It
is high time for some Southern
States to raise less cotton and
raise better men to public of
"Others refrain from partici

corruption therein. But the ob
