Fourth of Jiii> Celebration?Praia*

The foil >wing is taken from the
Spartanburg Herald, July ;">:
Qov. Cole. L. Blease yesterday ad
dressed two Immense and enthusias
tic audiences of cotton mill workers
in Spartanburg county?at Cowpens
in the morning and at Drayton
mills in the afternoon. Both ad
dresses were said by those familiar
with the Governor to be character
istic of the man.
At Drayton he denounced negroes,
whom he called "apes and baboons"
and for whom he said the most ef
fective remedy was "a little gun
powder and a few buckshot;" openly
gave his approval to lynching;
sneered at prohibition; condoned
manslaughter committed in the heat
of passion; defended his pardoning
of convicts and justified his other of
ficial acts which have evoked criti
cism; slurred Northerners; denounc
ed newspapers, especially The Co
lumbia State and The Spartanburg
Herald; spoke contemptuously of the
University of South Carolina and Dr.
S. C. Mitchell, president of the uni
versity, denied that he had sold par
dons, and declared that if he should
bo impeached be would go to the
United States Semite as the succes
sor to Senator B. K. Tillman.
As to Prohibition.
Governor Blease began his address
in a formal manner and then said that
he would talk about anything his au
dience wanted and suggested that
somebody give him a text. Someone
"If you can show me where there
is any prohibition in South Caroli
na," said Governor Blease, "i ll talk
He referred to prohibition again
later in his address, lie said he had
received requests from the authori
ties of various counties to send State
Constables into those counties to en
force the liquor laws. Put, said
Blease, he told them that since they
had voted to he dry they could en
force the liquor laws as best they
The Governor then switched from
one topic to another rather abrupt
ly. He told a story of a little boy
whom he had taken into the Gover
nor's Office in tlie State house and had
told him that it was his of?ce as well
as that of Cole Blease, and followed
up the story by saying that the State
house ???.ml the Governor's ofllce were
the property of all citizens.
"Hut by citizens." he said. "I mean
white men - not apes and baboons."
Caucasians Musi Huh-,
lie then launched into a tirade
against negroes. The Caucasian race
must dominate, lie said, and if en in
ferior race got in the way it must
be gotten out of the way In the most
"And a little gunpowder and a few
buckshot," he said, "are often the
most effective remedy."
Later he said that on a previous oc
casion he had made a statement
which had been taken to mean that
he favored lynching. He said he
siiw no reason why he should not be
perfectly frank about It?that he did
approve of lynching. And the reason,
he said, why there had been no lynch
lllgs in South Carolina during tin- six
months in which lie had been Govern
or was because the egroes knew that
he would not call out the military to
protect them from lynching if they
Insulted white women.
Negroes, he said, were so fond of
notoriety that often they were willing
to make a sacrifice and take a chance
of losing their lives in order to get
their names emblazoned in the news
papers. Hut they knew, he said, that
while he was Governor there was no
possible chance of their being saved
from an infuriated mob. Governor
Hlease said that if any woman of his
family was insulted by a negro all he
would ask was that the negro be
caught; be would do the rest himself.
Regarding his veto of appropria
tion bills he said Unit by so doing be
saved the state $67,000. lie declare
that the government of South Caro
lina was the most extravagant of any
State of the Union. He denounced
the extravagance of the State educa
tional Institutions cspeclrtjly. Gov
ernor Hlease declared that there were
men traveling In Kurope and enjoying
themselves and at the same time
drawing salaries from the State as
members of the faculty of some of
the State edhcatlonal institutions. He
said the excuse for permitting them
to travel In Europe was that they
were being trained to teach.
"But why the devil," he asked,
"were they employed to tench if they
didn't know how already."
Ho said he had respect for the ed
ucational institutions conducted by
the State and yet they had given no
men to publice office, whereas other
colleges in South Carolina, notably
Wofford college, had produced Illus
trious men. He mentioned that Wof
ford had produced Senator E. I).
Smith, with Whom he had ridden to
Spartanburg from Florence.
Snvder and Dr. Mitchell.
"And Henry Snyder," he said, re
ferrlng to the president of Wofford
college, "lias more sense and educa
tion than Dr. Mitchell has brains
enough to learn."
Speaking of his tilt with the Su
preme Court over the appointment
of special judges. Governor Hlease
said that he did not intend to ap
point special judges when regular
circuit judges were pitting around
in club rooms, drinking cocktails
and playing pinochle. And he added
vehemently that he could prove that
this had been the case. ,
Concerning bis liberal use of the
pardoning power be said that men
OUghl not to be punished too se
verely for crimes committed in the
heat of passion. There was no ex
cuse, ho said, for premeditated rob
beries, but when a man got Into
a quarrel and drew u pistol and
killed his antagonist he ought not
to be judged too severely.
With regard to the charges of
bribery made against him by Col.
Thomas H. Felder of Atlanta. Gov
ernor Hlease said that if Tow Fel
der would produce a letter asking
a bribe or acknowledging the re
ceipt, of a bribe, and any three men
familiar with Hleases handwrit'yig
would say the writing of the letter
was his, he would resign the govern
orship in 15 minutes.
On the other hand, he said, if he
could not prove that Felder had of
fer red a bribe to a State official, be
would not consent to resign the gov
ernorship, but woujld move to the
Governor Hlease said be was not
averse to Folder's being given a
change of venue if there was any
doubt as to his being able to obtain
justice in Newberry county.
Governor Hlease spoke at length
about standing by his friends. He
said lie loved his friends so much
that he wanted to he with them af
ter death, no matter where they
were. He declared that his enemies
need expect nothing from him.
He had been told, he said, that this
was not the proper spirit, and that
he should consider tin- example of
the Savior, who said of those who per
secuted Hint) "Father, forgive them,
for they know not what they do."
Governor Hlease said In? had no
forgivenness for his enemies because
they know very well what they were

lie mentioned among his enemies
the newspapers. He said the engi
t.r of a train could not stop his
train to pay attention to the curs
that ran out and barked at the
train. And neither, he said, could he
stop for the snarling curs, the news
papers. He said he would like to call i
them by another term, but it would

marks about Northerners several
times. He said that of 100 voters in
