Replies Characteristically to Uncom
plimentary Enquirer in Reno?.Mat
ter Ringes on the Divorce Law.
Columbia, April 1.?Governor Blease
received Saturday a letter from Neva
da which aroused his Indignation nnd
brought forth a characteristically pic
turesque reply. His correspondent,
writing from Reno, said ho and others
were trying to "clean up things" at
Ueno, in respect to the divorce indus
try and in consequence this State bad
been openly attacked in the legislative
debates, a leader in tbe Nevada as
sembly going so far as to say that
"the State of South Carolina, on ac
count of its public immorality, occa
sioned by the absence of divorce, bad
been cor.meiled to cect a large asy
lum for the maintenance of illegiti
South Carolina's standard of mo
rally Governor Blease replied "Is
hlvher than that of any other State
in the union." Tbe governor de
nounces as absolutely false, mean and
malicious the statement quoted In re
spect to a State asylum for illegiti
mate children. "South Carolina,"
says Governor niease. "has no divorce
law and her people are very proud
of the fact."
The very interesting correspondence
on the subject follows:

My Dear Sir:
We are in a hot fight out here In
this Western country concerning easy
divorce. We are li ving to clean* up i
things out here organize a course of>
lectures and 1 enclose card descrip- \
tive thereof. Also send you under
separate cover copy of my lecture
and the attack upon me by one of
the newspapers here, all of which
will bring good results.
An attack has been made by the
legislature here upon South Carolina,
as I understand, your state grants no
divorces. I have timber interests in
the South and know the high grade
of citizenship and morality that ob
tains in your State. One of the lead
ers in the legislature told me yester-1
day that the State o; South Carolina
Jon accoi nt of Its public Immorality
occasioned bv the absence of dhorce,
had been compelled to erect a large
asylum fur the malntenanie of illegiti
mate children, and I write this let
ter to Inquire If that is a truthful
Would it be too great a favor to
! ask you to write me briefly it the

Thanking you for the courtesy of
an answer, I beg to remain,
Very sincerely yours.

Your letter of .March :.'."> received.
South Carolina lias no divorce law.
and her people arc very proud of the
fact. The betrayal of the virtue of
one of her women means (h ath. The
standard of her morality is higher
than that Of any other State in the
American union, and the statement
that she has an orphan home for ille
gitimate Children is absolutely false.
There may be some institutions of the
kind in the State, but the State her
self lias no such institutions, and the
assertions sot out in your letter as to
such statements being made in your
State are mean and maliciously false.
