ANOTHER CHAPTER IX
MATTER OF NEGRO
Mr. A. J. Bethen, .secretary to Gov.
Ansel, yesterday received a letter from
a friend in Beaufort telling some inter
esting facts in connection with the mat
ter of appointing negroes to the office
of notary public. There have been 25
appointments of negroes in Beaufort in
the last 2?) years at the hands of the
following governors, respectively:
Richardson, 4; Tillman, 11; Evans, 3;
Ellerbe, 5; McSwoeney, 1; Hey ward, i;
Mr. Bethea was amused at the man
ner in which an unfriendly paper had
dodged the issue, since the refutation
of the malicious charges against Gov.
Ansel. "This paper, the first to start
the insinuation that Gov. Ansel was the
only governor to appoint a negro as
notary," said Mr. Bethea, "has not had
the moral courage to come out and ad
mit that it has wronged the governor?
and it has wronged him more than once
?but has made a lame excuse for its
fall down by saying that the governor's
friends are trying to hide behind Gov.
"Of course that is untrue. All that
my statement sought to do was to .-.how
that Gov. Ansel's conduct was in keep
ing with that of other governors and
Senator Tillman's name was used to re
fute the direct and untrue charge that
Gov. Ansel was the first governor to
appoint a negro as notary after Mr.
Tillman had revoked commissions of all
"I have shown conclusively that Gov.
Ansel in two years appointed but two
negroes as notaries and in one county
Gov. Tillman appointed 11, it seems.
This is published not to discredit any
other governor, not to take any advan
tage of precedent, but to give a fiat
denial to the charge published in the
Here is the verbatim charge they
made: "'When Gov. Tillman went into
bffico, it is said, ho found many negroes
holding the office of notary public, and
to get rid of them he had the legisla
ture to revoke the law under which they
were appointed and a new law enacted.
After that there were no more ap
pointed, so far as we kn >w, until it be
came reported that Gov. Ansel had ap
pointed a negro of Greenville a notary
public' "--The State, July 31.
