JOHN P. GRACE
? DESERTS GOVERNOR
Weekly Paper, Owned by iiim, Comes
out with un Authorized Statement
to the Effect that Grace Is no Long
er a "Mease Man."
"Common Sense", a weekly paper
published In Charleston and owned by
Mayor John P. Grace, came out with
a lengthy statement in Its Saturday's
Issue criticising severely the action of
the state convention in unseating his
delegation from Charleston. Toward
the latter part of the article, the fol
"Up to this time, although Mr.
Grace's Intimate friends have known
that he has had no Intention whatever
of supporting Governor Bleaso In the
coming election, he has for good and
sufficient reasons not seen fit to make
any public virtue of that fact. He has
been sincere In this attitude, not be
cause he has ever had, or ever could
have any honest admiration for Gover
nor Blease; but because as bad as
Blease Is, ho haB nevertheless granted
to Charleston, a degree of local
freedom which she has not enjoyed for
many years. The only thing which has
made Grace utterly shrink from a
proper appreciation of this great boon
to his constituency Is his knowledge
that It Is a freedom purchased for
money and his sincere conviction that
at least a portion of such miserable
money goes to Columbia. The man
who takes It there was a delegate of
the Barn well delegation. What do the
good people of Charleston think of
that anomaly? There are situations
in Which a public man is sometimes
placed where his conscience weighs
very heavily against expediency for his
constituency; in other words, when he
suffers things to exist and men to
prosper, not for his own sake, but for
the sake of those whose destinies he
[ feels he Is called upon to direct. We
know that this has been Mr. Grace's
I feeliii!; towards the political and im
moral moss which has existed in
' Charleston for a long time. He lias
I hoped that he would get assurances
I from the Jones people that they would
I tolerate certain local freedom in Char
I leston, without being paid for such
I toleration lacking which he has alone
refrained from throwing whatever ln
' fluence he might have in favor of
I Judge Jones. Such assurances have not
I been forthcoming. If he were little
I enough to be governed in any nu'ter
I by mere personal resentment, th< ac
. tlon of the Jones steam-roller would
be enough to make him wait no long
' er; but, however bitter and dlstaste
' ful It might be, he would turn again
I to Blease. Such however Is impossl
| ble. He still hopes that Judge Jones,
i and his leaders, in thai broad spirit
of toleration which he well knows has
once again taken possession of South
Carolina with reference to Charleston,
Will see fit to regard the peculiar con
ditions in Charleston and promise re
lief therefrom. The long and short
of It is, that we arc authorized by Mr.
Grace now and for the llrst time pub
licly to declare that he is not a Blease
man. But whether or not he can
take any part for Judge Jones still
remains to bo seen. Mr. Grace has
earnestly hoped to bring to Charles
ton honest, legal relief, from a n.ost
deplorably lawless situation, and he
has been frank enough to avow such
sentiments openly In Columbia, In the
halls of legislation. He does not wish
to profit through the political jugglery
of a moral question, as have for so
many years those who now hold polit
ical power through a widespread pros
titution of law. Have the people of
Charleston forgotten through whom it
was that all our troubles began? O
temporal O mores!"
