Roanoke World.
Two or three months ago Mr.
W. G. Baldwin, head of the
Baldwin-Felts detective agency,
was on a train travelling south.
The train was running between
Baltimore and Washington and
--ill was proceeding peacefully
until a tall passenger of fine ap
pearance began to squabble
with the cond:uctor about a
drawing room. The car con
tained three drawing rooms,
two of which, the conductor as
serted, had been sold and were
occupied, and the third was on
sale in Washington and could
not be assigned until after
Washington was reached. He
gave the passenger every assur
ance that after the train arrived
at the capital the drawing room
would be turned over to him
and that he could make use of it
during the remainder of his jour
ney.
The passenger was far from
satisfied. With oaths and ex
cited gestures he walked up and
down the aisle, raving and curs
ing at the cpnludtor, calling
him f liar and abusing him in a
most indecent manner,
Among other utterances of
this passenger, shoutipg so that
he could be heard in every cor
ner of the car, was the theatri
cal declaration that he was the
governor of South Carolina, and
that the conductor, should he
not deliver one of the drawing
rooms immediately, would not
be allowed in South Carolina;
that through the governor's in
fluence (?) he should lose his po
sition. He spoke in most vio
lent manner. Every person on
the c.ir, man and woman, was
indignant, and in discussing the
incident, did not hesitate to ex
press an opinion decidedly em
phatic. The names of a num
ber of them were given the con
ductor in order that he might
use them in setting forth his po
sition and explaining his con
duct.
Detective Baldwin, indignant
as the rest of the persons in the
ca~r, asked if the disorderly per
son were really South Carolina's
governor. "That's Coleman L.
Blease," he was assured.
On his return to Roanoke De
tective Baldwin wrote a letter
to the Pullman company, set
ting forth the facts in the case,
and the reply received by him
gave assurance that the conduc
tor was in no danger of losing
his position. So far as we know
that conductor is still on the job
and the convictions of the pas
sengers remain the same-that
ilease is a very absurd and dis
graceful speciman of humanity.
What Georgia Would Do.
Augusta Herald.
Whatever may be one' s indi
vidual opinion as to the truth or
falsity of the multitudinous
charges of misconduct and
malfeasance. in office-which
come from man sources
against the governor of South
Carolina, there is, perhaps, no
one who can escape the very
definite and painful impression
that the good old State of South
Carolina presents a most humnil
ating spectacle in having as
her governor a man against
whom so many and such seri
ous charges can be brought.
To say that the chief execu
tive of a great State should be
like Caesar's wife, above sus
picion, is merely to say that
everyone knows and feels-and
certainly, Cole L. Blease has
not so conducted himself as to
be above suspicion.
For instance, the charge has
been made, not merely by
Thomas B. Felder and the
Burns' detectiyes, but by the
Mayor of Charleston-a man in
very closest touch with the situ
ation, and a former friend and
supporter of Blease-that the
governor of S3outh Carolina ap
pointed one Stothart as "chief
constable" of Charleston, and
that Stothart ~has svstemati
cally collected "graft" from
the liquor dealers of that city,
agreeing to give them "protec
tion" in return for their month
ly payments. And Charlestor
liquor dealers have confessed t<
buying this protection frort
Stothart-tie' governor's an
pointee. Ohers confided t<
Deeciv1 W iwlson"_the inform
ation that Stothart openly pro
claimed that he was represent
ing the governor in the. matte:
and that the bulk of the "graft'
money went directly to th(
governor.
Now, this may or may not bE
true, and most men will doubi
the credulity of any and all of
the witnesses directly involved
in these alleged transactions.
But it is a' serious charge; one
that seems to be pretty well es
tablished, at least so far as
Stothart is concerned-and yet
the governor of South Carolina
permits Stothart to remain as
"chief constable" at Charleston.
The guestion naturally follows
-why?
At least one thing is certain;
if Stothart really had authority
from the governor to levy "toll"
on the Charleston liquor dealers,
as charged, then the governor
dare not discharge him. For
the obvious reason that he
knows too much-and would
tell. But if the governor is in
no way involved in this Char
leston scandal, he owes it to
himself and to the dignity and
honor of his State to dismiss
Stothart sumnarly.
Will he do it? It remains to
be seen. But by action, or non
action, he may be fairly judged
in this particular matter,
In this connection, it may
not be out of place to refer to
the fact'that the governor of
South Carolina, In his usual
chaste and dignified manner
and for the evident purpose of
making votes by arousing a
feeling of rivalry or enemity be
tween South Carolina and
Georgians-saw fit to refer. to
the governor of Georgia as a
"Sap-seeded watermelon-head
ed governor," and to Georgians
in general as "pimps and
cowards," all.
Having thus forced a com
promise- if, indeed, insult from
such a source may be consider
ed such-we can scarcely escape
the observation that if the
State of Georgia had a
governor who was compelled to
deny
That he sold pardons for
cash
That he was hand-in-glove
with-known "grafters" -
That he had accepted pay for
defeating legislation -
That "blind tigers" contri.
buted large sums to his cam
paign fund
That he was a beneficiary of
"graft" collected from liquor
dealers
Or if Georgia had a governor
who could so far forget himself
and the dignity attaching to
his high office, as well as the
respect due his people, as to use
the language that Cole L.
Blease has repeatedly used on
the stump in South Carolina.
There would be found enough
good men and true in Georgia
to drive such a man from the
gubernatorial chfir without
ceremony- if not through the
ballot box, by means more
drastic.
And that, we confidently be.
lieve. is what the good people of
South Carolina will do with
Blease-provided the good peo
ple are not woefully in the
minority in that State.
Fraternal Orders,
As we see it, an injustice has
been done the great order of
'Red Men of South Carolina by
the recent declaration of a mem
ber that he would have two
men fired out of the member
ship because he disliked them.
To which they replied that the
threat was a jest as they are too
well known to their fellow mem
bers for the charges to be be
lieved.
Does this great fraternal and
social order belong to any one
man or set of men, to'be order
ed around like a flock of sheer
-or are they men, independent
in mind, in thought. in speech!
This reminds us of the claims
of some politicians that they~
carry the vote of the factory
people in their vest pockets.
What an insult to the factory
people! The intimation is thai
they are a class of no personality
who will be lead by the nos<
because of ignorance, or will b<
induced to false ideals, througi
prejudice.
We have kno-in secret ordei
to be ridden,' like their owi
mythical gcrts, by candidate:

the election. The said bonds
shall be executed by the County
Supervisor and under his seal
and countersigned by the
County Treasurer, who shall
join every order in sight that
they might get votes thereby.
We~ have known others to aspire
to high rank in fraternal orders
who were elected delegates to
this, that or the other conven
tion.
That is very fine. Long trips
with expenses paid by the poor
"brethren" at home whose
noses are so close to the ritual
that they cannot appreciate
that they themselves are being
made goats and their order
with its high purposes is being
degraded byv selfish .men. We
would not assert that such is
the case in these wide awake
days. but has it not been done?
Reflect upon this. In fact
fraternal orders have been used
to mock the very purposes for
which t hey were intended-un
selfishness. brotherhood, the
sinking of self to serve others,
n atriotism.
