The Intelligent Voter
Let's see who is the inteligent
When Judge Jones spoke at
Hampton he used some langu
age that was unnecessary.
I voted for Gov. Blease last
election for I had no patience
with prohibition or a man who
advocated it in the State of S.
C. while the national constitu
tion alowed whiskey to be ship
ed in the State. When Judge
Jones was announced it struck
me very forcibly. But when
the legislative committee went to
Augusta to hear the testimony
of Felder, one with any reason
ble idea began to imagine why if
Gov. Blease is so easily bribed
why do not these individuals
who are spending so much mon
ey to get something against the
governor dont just buy him and
run the Government, one would
at once believe he was not so
easy bribed. One would be
lieve he was unjustly ridiculed,
I had but little idea as to the
pardons and after seeing so
much slush in the papers that
was unreasonable I was recon
cerned to look up the cause of
those pardons. The papers has
published things tY at had they
of been true should not of been
published and hurled to the out
side world unless they meant to
hurt the name of our proud
State. When Grace was elected
mayor of Charlston sopme of the
Greenville papers and several
others threw shame at the lit
tle city by the sea and pittied it.
But when Grace spoke in Green
ville the same papers said Grace
was not a stranger in Greenville
that he was among his friends
and relatives. The papers sound
to me like what I heard a 1iol
to woman say once that she
"had no credit never had had
any "nor I don't want "nun!"
I don't reckpn any of the Spar
tanburg people are low enough
to regret the rotten egg happen
ing its only what ought to of
been done. There are other char
acters that I would mention but
ink is too high priced besides I
feel like a bath now since pass
ing those I have.
M. W. IHester
[We would like to Inquire of
Mr. Hester what Judge Jones
ad to do with the investigating
ommittee's meeting in Augus,
tal or what the dictagraph said?
r what Grace said? If Govern
or Blease could have ha'd his
way, there would never have
been any investigation,. for he
vetoed the act creating the com
mittee after he had asked the
legislature to pass suich a law,
and the public would never have
known of the grafting from the
tigers of Charleston. Why do
you charge up to Judge Jones
the faults and mistakes of oth
ers, if they have been made?
He is in no way whatever re
sponsible for what t~e leggla
ture didl whep the inyestigating
committee was created, even
though that body acted on Gov.
Blease's invitation.-Editor. 1

the address of 'y@!?pme.
H an. J. J. Mc~wain, oftGreen
ville, was the orator of the day.
He made an excellent address,
dwelling upon the fraternal and
social side of the order, and lay
inephagig up)4 t4ge insur
ance feature. lie stated that
since the war about S100,000,000
had been sent north from South
Caoln in insurance and only
one third of it had returned.
For every three dollars sent up
north only one returns. It was
time, he said, for the South to
stop sending their money !to the
north, as it was for the South's
best interest to keep it at home
in their own companies. After
Mr. )McSwain's address, Rev.
Mr. Kirby made a short speech.
The ladies then began preparing
dinner. while the crowd had
some fun in engaging in a tug
of war and apple races. Many
joined in the sport.
After dinner the monument
to the late Sovereign F. E. Cox
was unveiled. the Misses Porter
withdrawing the veil.
The Pickens band furnished
most excellent music.
