PICKENS, S. C.:
- THURSDAY. MAY , 1912.
Col. Green, The Detective.
EFor several weeks there has
been a small clash between
Gov. Blease and Comptroller
General Jones over the pay
ments of the accounts of Gov.
Blease's special detectives Col.
Green and Rev. Crieghton.
They filed their accounts with
the Comptroller General foi
salary and expenses and pay
ment wa3 refused for the reasor
they were not itemized. ThE
Comptroller General took the
position that the claims should
show each item of expense and
the day on which it was incurr
ed. He furthur stated as his
reason that the people had a
right to know for what purpose
and how the public funds were
being expended. The Governor
took the opposite view and held
that it was none of Mr. Jones'
business to question the accur
acy of the claims inasmuch as
he had approved them. But the
Comptroller General stuck to
his position and Col. Green
itemized his account.
The twc. accounts as filed with
the Comptroller General by Col.
Green were published in full
in the Columbia Record of the
17th and we here give them tc
our readers for their inspection.
The first claim filed by Col
Green and of which payment
was refused is as follows.

Total.................. $360.00
This account was also sworn
to as being correct.
Now, both of them cannot be
correct. There are glaring dis
crepancies in the two. Take1
the first item in the two ac
counts, "the Olar lynching," the
charge in the first claim is $30.
and in the second claim is $60.1
Investigating the killing of
Bryson in the first claim is
charged at $20. and in the se -
ond claim $30. And the other i
items all show increased charges<
in the second claim to those in<
the first claim, and some. itemst
appear in the second claim
which are not shown in the<
first, but these were incurred t
after the first claim was filed.
What we wish to call atten
tion to is that the first five items
in the first account am~ounts toC
$105.50 and the same items in I
the second account amounts to t
$180. a difference of $74.50. s

t:
of the two accounts is $154.50. C
As we understand the terms
under which Col. Green and
Rev. Crieghton are at' work as s
special detectives of the Gov
rnor they are to receive a sal
ary of $100 per month and ex- 1
penses. It cannot, as Is claim
ed, be reasm)ably contended a,
hat the second claim covers e
alary and expenses for two si
nonths The difference in the ~
unount of the t wo accounts for E
;he first month show a discrep- ra
ecy of $7.50 and the salary is
dded on the first account.

The things the people are in
