"No Sane, Mai
Jones favors a
Columbia, Aug 7.-"-No sane
man in the State believes that
Judge Jones is in favor of social
equality. He would make a
good governor, for he is emi
nently qualified."
These statements are contain
ed in a letter by Sen. B. R. Till
man to Jas. L. Sims, editor of
the Orangeburz Times and Dem
ocrat, which was announced
here tcnight.
"As you were he-d of the re
frorm movement and were gov
ernor when Judge Jones voted
against the separate car act, we
would like for you to say wheth
er you consider Judge Jones an
advocat of social equality be
cause he voted against the act,
and whether in your judgment
he would make a good governoi
of the State."
The folloving is Senator Till
man's letter:

(Parody on "Casey Jones ")
Come all you fellows that want
to laugh,
For here is a story by a dicto
graph,
Sam J. Nichols was a lawyer's
name,
In the Finch hotel he won his
fame.
Mr. Porter called Nicholls up
over the phone,
Said, "Cone to the Finch.
and to my room;
I want a pardon for that John
son man,
Who cracked a safe and wa
put in the Penn."
Oh, Sam J, Nicholls mounted
up the stairway,
Sam J. Nicholls, a petition in
his 4andl
Oh, Sam J. Nicholls mounted
up the stairway,
Thirty thousand dollars was
his demand,
Then he took a drink, tho't he'd
have some fun,
But the old dictograph began
to run;
Mr. S. N. Porter began to kick
at the price,
But Mr. Nicholls thought it
very nice,
Oh, Mr. Porter you need not
stare,
For Blease andI Sims must
hagtheir share;
We pr all together and in the
same boat,

ing it float,
Oh, Sami J. Nicholls tho't he
was aschemning,,
V Sam J. Nicholls, Porter's
friend indeed;
Sam J. Nicholls was only
dreaming'
lie was talking to Detective
E. S. Reed.
Said Porter to Nicholls, "That's
entirely too much,
Thirty thousand dollars, I'll
do no such:
Altho said party to a fortune is
an heir,
I'm not as eisy as that to
scare."
Said Nicholls to Porter, "Just
give me a chance,
For I'm the man that makes
Blease dance,
Mr. Sims ten thousand, and
Blease the same,
Now can't you see I'm play
ing a great game?"
Oh, Sam J, Nichols said Blease
would be elected,
Sam J. Nicholls, for the next
two years:
0,h, Sam J. Nicholls, said
Bleaseid go to the senate,
And that he'd be governor-,
he had no fears.
At last he came down to fifteen

agreed,
Mr. Nicholls not knowIng

Mr. Porter was not the man he

P Believes That
Pocial Equality"
Benjamin Ryan Tillman
Dear Mr. Sims:
I have your letter of J aly 29,
for which please accept thanks.
I have been surprised that
Judge Jones has allowed Blease
to put him on the defensive and
made him explain sonething
that needed no explanation, for
no sensible man in the State be
lieves that Judge Jones is in fa
vor of social equality, and Gov.
Blease has laughed in his sleeve
t) see how shrewdly he has
muddied the water.- In other
words, he has played politics
more adroitly than the judge.
In reply to your questions, I
answer:
",I do not consider Judge Jones
an advocate of social eguality
because he voted against the act
and I believe he would make a
good governor, for he is eminent
ly qualified. * * * *
Very sincerely yours,
B. R. Tillman."
ness stand;
Oh. Sam J. Nicholls made this
grave statement:
"I was drunk on liquor of a
nice Scotch brand."
Mr. T. B. Felder, an Atlanta at
torney,
Was the man that gave Reed
the pardon money:
For he knew Blease and
Nichols could not laugh
When they heard this story
thru' the dictograph.
Now Mr. Nicholls, as he's in a
hole,
Goes around speaking for his
old friend Cole:
When he comes to our town
with his wvails and moans
He'll find most of us here for
Ira B. Jones.
Oh, Sam J. Nicholls keeps run
ning around,
Sam J. Nicholls. of his time

Oh, Sam J. Nicholls has run

For he has been recorded by
the dictograph.

SUPREME COURT
WAS IMPARTIAL
Mr. W. H. Townsend Defends
Judge Jones' Record
To the Editor of The State:
In view of the criticism of
the attitude of the supreme
court toward the Southern Rail
way conpany while Ira B.
Jones was a member of the
court, I have examined all the
reported decisions filed during
that period, in wvhich Mr. Jus
tice Jones participated, both
while associate and chief justice
and find that as a justice of the
court, Judge Jones participated
in deciding 3,299 cases on ap
peal from the circuit courts. In
these 3,299 cases there were 2,
68 affirmances, 952 reversals
and 179 modifications. From
this it appears that a little over
one-third of all cases appealed
were either reyersed or modi
fied. This does not indicate, as
one not a lawyer might errone
ouslv conclude, that the circuit
courts were wrong In a third of
the cases tried, as appeals are
taken only in cases in which.
the attorneys. who are experts
in looking for error, think error
can be successfully assigned.
The supreme court has sustain
ed such conclusion of the law
yers in only one-third of the
cases wh~ich the lawyers thought
erreneously decided. In 238
cases decided on circuit against
the Southern Railway company
or companies allied with or con
trolled bv it, the supreme court
afirmed the action of the ir
cuit court in 170 cases and re
versed it in 65 cases andl modi
fid it in three cas's. Thus it
appears that the number of re
versals and modificat ions in
favor of the Southern R ailwayj
company and its controlled rail
roads was not as high as the
average number of reversl
and modifications on all appeals
This demonstrates the fact, as
far as figures can do so, that
there has been no bias or lean
jnu to or against the Southern
LIFE IRA B. JONES
EXPOSED TO PUBLIC
From Boyhood Days, as Lawyer
Legislator, Associate Justice
and Chief Justice, His
Record is Given
It is right that the Deople of
South Carolina should know the
facts about the candidates in
the race for governor before the
27th of August, because no one
can vote properly who does not
vote intelligently. Therefore.
to cast a vote intelligently. one
must know the records of the
candidates. This article is writ
ten with the purpose of letting
the people know more about Ira
B. Jones.
Few people know that Judge
is a MAN OF THE PEOPLE. He is
proud of the fact that in New- I
berry county he was born, and
that there are still people living
who remember that his father
was a highly respected carpen
ter, and his mother assisted his I
father in the support of the famn
ily by sewing for the neighbors.
As Student and Young Lawyer
Almost from childhood Ira B.
Jones looked at life seriously.
His schoolmates remember that
often in the afternoon when
they were at play he would go
in early to study for his classes
of. the next day, and they testi
fy to the fact that he gave early
promise of becoming an upright
honest and useful citizen.
By careful study and taking
advantage of such meagre op
portunities as were offered, he
obtained a fair education. The
schools then were not what they
are now, which is probably the
reason why Judge Jones, re
mem bering his own difficulties
and wishing to smooth the road
for other poor boys, declaied
that as governor the improve
ment and development of the
common schools shall have my
keen interest and hearty sup
port.
It would be easy and perhaps
interesting to tell how young
Jones, having gotten an educa
tion, moved to Lancaster coun- J
y and b)egan the practice of c
law. How his clients came slow- j
ly at first, but soon gained con- ]
fidence in hign, so that he had a t
large and paying practice. We~
are chiefly interested, however,
in his political career.
As Legisla rC
In 1890 Ira B. Sones was elect ~
d to the legislature from Lan
aster county, and it is evident
hat he was widely knmwn and1
hat his ability had been recog
ized, for he was at once made ~
hairman of the ways and ~
means committee of the house '
nd was later elected speaker.
I'hese were stirring times, for ~
the great reform movement had ~
ust swept over South Carolina
C
nd party spirit ran hi~th. Sen
tor Tillman, then governor,
as instituting many needed re
forms, and Judge Jones, speak- ~
r of the house, was doing effi
ient service. Be it stated to his 3
redit, however, that thou~gh ~
he whole State was aroused by I
political animosity, Judge Jones i
o conducted himself as to re- ~
eive The hearty applause of his a
friends and at the same time, by I
bs fairness, he won the respect
and confidence of those who ~
ad been his political opponents. I
As Judge
It came, therefore, as a natu
al reward for service that, inc
896 he was elected associate p
ustice of the highest court in' e
he State. It may be mentioned ~
n passing that his present oppo
ent for in the race for govern- t
r seconded his nomination and
voted for him for associate just
tice. Having served 12 years as
associate justice, in 1909. upon
the retirement of Justice Pope.
Judge Jones was elevated to the
position of chief justice, which
is the highest judicial position
in the gif c of the State.
It may truthfully be said that
no jadge mn South Carolina i
many years has enjoyed greater
reputation byth for ability and
honsty than Ira S. Jones. The
sane industry and conscientious
perfomance of duty which was
noticeable in him as a young
man have characterized him as
a judge.
He has been the recipient of
ny hnor from his fellow.
IMPROVEMENT
FARM WORK
Southern Railway to Organize
Farm Improvement Branch
For Aiding the Men
on the Farm
Washington, July. 31.-Pres.
Finley, of the Southern railway
announced today that the man
agement of that company. real
izing the great opportunity for
increasin- the prosperity of the
territory traversed by - its lines
through building up soil produc
tivity and increasing the aver
age crop yield per acre, had de
cided to organize a department
f farm improvement work, to
begin operations on September 1
This department will work on
the cooperative demonstration
plan, first adopted by Dr. S. A.
Knapp. of the U. S. agricultur
il department. This plan has
been followed with marvelous
mccess by the cotton culture de
partment of the Southern rail
way in the territory along the
ine of the advance of the Mexi
an boll weevil. It is now pro
)osed to extend the work over
;he system generally, adapting
t to the peculiar condition of
ach locality.
The cotton culture department
s to be merged into the depart
nent of farm iMprovement
work, and Mr. T. G. Plunket,
who has been general agent of I
he cotton culture department,
s to be at ti e head of the work t
with the title of nianager of 4
arm improvement work. His
>ffice will be in Atfanta, and t
bree assistant maiaers of the I
vork will be appoi! ted to be lo- I
ated at advanta-eous points.
k force of field agents will be E
ppointed to visit the faimers
n their respective localitics and C
ooperate with them for the de
nen and the emoluments o -f f
ice, but the satisfaction of a
ard day's work well done lia,
over been his best reward.
Charges Unjust
Among the charges hurled at.
udge Jones by his political op
ponents, it is alleged that he
as leaned toward corporations.
In the case of Rhodes against
he Granby cotton mills of Co
umbia, he upheld a verdict of '
10,000 in favor of Rhodes (ex
ression fromn Rhodes on this
ase found elsewhere on this t
age) on the ground that there
vas evidence that he had been
mjustly discharged and black
isted by the cotton mills. The
erdicts which he sustained
GAINST THE RAILROADS would
unup into hundreds of thous
~nds of dollars there being one
erdict against the Southern
alroad for $25,000, and many
thers for large amounts.
He has never leaned toward
r against corporat'ons, but his
ecisions and rulings have been
ihat those of every judge ought'
o bc-just and fair to all.
As citizen, lawyer, legislator,t
udge and chief justice, Ira B.
ones has "'made good." He
tas lived an upright, moral life; ~
s a conscientious member of the
tssociate Reformed Presbyteri- t
,n church, is temperate in his I3
Labits, and has measured up to s
.11 the requirements of a true
nd useful inan. It should be
emembered that this plan who
s before the peple foy the gov
rnor hiad neyer inu his life been ~
harged with~ anytig xinbe-t
oming the highest and best cit
~en until his opponent brought
harges against him. The ab
urdity of these charges is best
hown by Senator Tillm an's ut
erance on the que~stion (appears t
n another column) and also by
he fact that Cole L. Blease vot
d for Judge Jones for United
tates sena'e in 1909, with such
nen as Frank B. Gary, LeG. I
Walker, J. L. Coker and other
igh men. To try to make the
ntelligent citizens of South Car
lina believe that this maan who
1as been their highest judge be- 1
ieves in social equality between
~he races is evidently such a
~rck to catch votes as needs no
posure,1
Ira B. Jones is not a political
experiment, and as a governor,
he may be counted on to give]
the people the same honest. in
telligent and faithful service
which has always characterized
his work in their behail-.

Press dispatches last week cax

as follows:

Lancaster,, Aug. 6.-Warn
and deep doubtless was the in
ward glow of satisfaction fel
by Ira B. Jones over the testi
monials of esteem and confi
dence given him today, whei
he appeared on the platform a
a candidate for governor befori
the people of this communiti
among whom he has made hi.
home for 37 years and to whon
he has done credit in official lif(
as legislator, speaker of th
house of representatives, associ.
ate justice of the supreme couri
and chief justice of that trib.
unal.
One evidence of his standing
with his home folk, which hE
expressed himself as appreciat
ing particnlarly was the pres
ence in force of the women of
Lancaster. Their attendance
on the meeting and their pre
sentation to him of floral trib
utes in profussion pleased him
especial'y as indicating their
trust in his morals, cleanliness
and integrity and in the purity
and dignity of his ideals of life.
This demonstration of cordial
interests and sympathy from
the people of his county gave
Judge Jones the text for his
opening, remarks.
Such phases of the campaign
against him as he should here
discuss would be mentioned
only in response to special re
quests. "Blease is nothing,
Jones Is nothing, South Caro
lina is everything."
He said he was greatly stirred
at what he regarded as indigni

honored its occupant. He had
made no charges which the pub
lic records did not warrant.
The fust attack was made by
the goyernor in his message l'7
printed at the States expense.
Hie himself kept silent until he
left the bench.
BLEASE'S SPEECH.
Gov. Blease began~ his address
with an argument intended to
divert from Judge Jones such
Lancaster votes as might be
given him out of county pride.
He said Judge Jones like him
came from Newber-ry and was
not even a son-in-law of Lan
caster because his wife came
from S duda.
The speaker said it had been
reported that -Judge Jones was
brought out for governor as the
re~ult of a dinner held at the
Liberty Hill home of John G.
Richards, Jr., and attended by
Senator Tillman, Dr. Strait and
others. He sa~id that Col. Rich
ards, sg Mr as he knew, was
not taking sides in the race for
'governor, that Senator Tillman
had recently proclaimed him
self neutral and that, in fact,
nobody brought out Judge Jones
but that candidate brought
himself out because of his disa
greemnent as chief justice with
the governor in regard to the
appointment of special judges.
The governor said Judge Jones
had violated precedent in having
himself electe#i chief justice over
the head of the senior associate
justice, Eugene B. Gary.
"I was strictly within the
law," said Blease, "'when I
made that statement about
King and Watson fi om the
State house steps, and Ira B,
Jones knows I was. Here is
'the law; if you invite a man
out of your house and he re
fuses to go, you have a right t(
lead him out; if he won't go,
you have a right to use what
ever force may be ilecessary ir
order to expel him even if you
have to kill him. I said in Co
lumbia, and I repeat it, that if
a man ever comes to yom
house and uses the language

Supreme Court Decisionl
of Independence for
Sfate," DecIares
The following statement from
- 0. M. Rhodes, the man who ob
t tained the large verdict against
- the Granby cotton mills of Co
- lumbia, is interesting and ini
1 portant in that it shows .Judge
3 Jones' attitude toward the
3 working man:
r In view of certain campaign
a charges against the supreme
1 court of South Carolina, and
3 especially its former Chief
Justice, Hon. Ira B. Jones, to
the effect that they were partial
to corporations and hostile or in
different to the interests of
plain laboring men, I feel it my
duty* to make this statement
to the public.
In the year 1907 I was in the
employ of the Granby cotton
mills of Columbia, S. C., as a
trucker, and in consequence of
a strike by the loom fixers in
the same mill I was discharged
by the company and my name
was placed on a blacklist which
the company sent to other cot
ton mills in the State with the
view to preventing me from get
ting aii employment again in
any cotton mill. I tried to get
enplovment in other ihills but
was turned down, and I had to
leave my native State of South
Carolina and go to Virginia to
get a chance to work.
I applied to lawyers and they
brought suii for me in Richland
county against the Granby cot
ton mills to recover damages for
the wrong done me.
Upon the trial of this cause
Judge Memminger laid down
the law that a man had a right
to get employment without the
interference of anybody that
had a grudge against him, and
that such interference, as by a
blacklist, was a violation of a

[Here, as at Camden, visitors
Ifrom other counties were present
in force. The train from Co

with passengers from the capi-1
tal and way stations. Three
coach loads w"ere brought by
rail from points between Ches

numbers came by rail from
Rock Hill and other York coun
ty points and many automobiles
bearing the names of other
counties arrived during the
forenoon. Many North Caro

The estimated attendance
ranged b etween 1,800 and 2,000.
The correct figure is probably
close around 'L000.4
AT YORKVILLE.
Yorkville, Aug. 7.- A crowd
estimated at nearly two thous
and heard the State candidates
here today.
Gov. Blease had fewer dem
onstrative supporters in the
crowd than he has had at some
meetings. The order of the day
was exceptionally good.
Judge Jones never mentioned
Governor Blease's name but
once in his speech and this onc
was when nine and half min
utes before his time expired he
said: "Duncan is nothing,
Blease is nothing,,Jones is noth
ing. South Carolina is all."
Judge Jones stopped eight min
utes before his time expired.
His only references to the Gov
ernor's record were inferential
when he repeated his usual ap
peals for good government and
law and order and said he
would, if elected, not be the

advocated the Tor rens system.
