said he would not undertake a defense
in detail of his judicial record. He
was content that this be judged by
whatever the lawyers of Charleston or
any other county would say about it.
His assertion that ho was free, un
pledged, unbought and unhuyabie
brought forth hearty and general
che/srs. He had understood, he said,
that VV. H. Andrews, the "big boss'*
and the "logroller" of the Atlantic
Coast Lumber corporation, had prom-1
lsed Oov. Bleaso to deliver to him the
vote of Georgetown county, but L. S.
Ehrlch, called by enemies "the un
scrupulous Jew," was teaching Mr.
Andrews a lesson and he would find it
not so easy to deliver Georgetown's
vote to anybody. Gov. Blease had
excused his possession of a free rail
road pass while serving In the State
senate by saying he paid for it by
services as a railroad attorney, but
the point was that he could not carry
such a pasB In those circumstances
without violating the Taw. I
"In the last State convention," said
Judge Jones, "when tho Democrats of
South Carolina wanted that splendid
man, Gov. Wilson of New Jersey, to
be nominated as a man not subser
vient to the money power, and while
the friends of Jones were doing all
they could to bring about this result,
Gov. Blease and his friends to a man
voted against Wilson, who was the
standard bearer of the Democrats of
The speaker was discussing the
governor's revocation of all commis
sions of notaries public when a voice
on the boor Interjected tho remark:
"Well, he got rid of niggers."
"Yes," said Judge Jones, "there Is
a nigger In the woodpile In nearly
everything that Gov. Blease does.
Why could he not have dismissed the
negroes and let the white notaries
Judge Jones redtculed the constant
references by the governor to "news
"Oh," he said, "how these crooks
and criminals do hate newspapers.
What honest man fears the press?"
Judge Jones concluded by saying he
wanted the support of the people of
Charleston. He believed he would
have their help, their good will and
their friendship. He held out his hand
to every man who loved his State,
whether he were ligh or low. and who
was willing to Join him In his fight
for good government. He stood, he
said, for county local option on the
liquor question with due enforcement
of the law.
"Help me," he said, "to a decent
administration of the law which 1 will
have sworn te enforce, and you will
get from me tho highest mo,tsi.re of
local self government.
Paid for Favor.
Gov. Blease started out by making
a statement, regarding the graft
charges against his chief constable In
Charleston, Ben. H. Stothart. The
governor said ho had sought the votes
of Charlestonians for a State olllcc
in the campaign of 1900, 1902, 1906.
1908 and 1910, and in all these he
owed much of what support be got
in Charleston to the Influence and
labors of one man?Stothart. So in
1910 when he was elected governor
he bestowed on Stothart the best posi
tion it was In his power to give him.
He had stood by Stothart because
Stothart had stood by hime. He was
standing by him yet and proposed to
continue In that course. Those who
; did not like it couldn't help it. Ho
was governor of South Carolina and
intended to bo governor the rest ol
this year, and the next two ye;.rs.
Gov. Blease said that as a legislator
' ho had opposed an effort In which
Judge Jones joined to put Charleston
Into "a black belt." He had made a
1 speech for the Citadel at the age of
122, wohn it was feared Ben Tlllman
would ruin the "dude factory." This
speech, he said, saved the institution
at its most perilous moment, acced
ing to members of board of visitors.
He bad also allowed an Appropria
tion to enlarge the Citadel, though
he had vetoed appropriations for oth
er State colleges. He credited Rep
resentative F, M. Bryan and A. \V.
Todd of Charleston with doing good
work for the Citadel in this matter.
Judge Jones, the governor declared,
had forgotten to tell of some votes
by him??which were Important to
He said he believed in local self
government, yot he had voted to Im
pose on Charleston the metropolitan
police system; he had opposed an
amendment offered by Mr. Patton of
Rlchland 'when they wanted to search
private homes, strike out the In
junction feature and guarantee trial
by Jury In tho criminal courts.'
"Since he had been on the supreme
court," said tho governor, "Injunction
after Injunction had been put on you.
Is that local self government? But
I have given Charleston liberty of
thought and freedom of action. Since
I have been governor how many In
junctions have been issued, how many !
women's trunks have been broken \
"What about high license?'" some
Favors IIluIt License.
"That's what you ought to have,"
said Gov. Hlease. He explained that
he had told the legislature in a mes
sage that the dispensary law ought
not to be forced on Charleston for
conditions here were peculiar. .Judge
Jones, ho said, had been reading a
telegram from Judge Memlmnger
which he had hoped would be read at
this meeting. It said Judge Mein*
minger was sick at the time of th*>
Horry court Incident. "I hope," said
the governor, "that Judge Memmlng
er read that telegram before bo sign
ed It. He signed one paper that he
did not read and It kept him off the
supreme court bench."
? The governor said that at the time
j of the Horry court Incident Judge
Memmlngcr In person talked with
him over tho telephone and said he
I had no court to hold that week or tho
next, but said not a word about be
ing sick. It was, however, mighty
easy for him to get a sick certificate
and fall back on the pet excuse of
the trickster lawyer.
"Judge Jones," exclaimed the gov
ernor, "says he never represented a
railroad. What then was he doing
with a free pass when he was speaker
of the house?"
The familiar charge by Gov. Hlease
was made that Judge Jones by his
votes on the Jim Crow car bills bad
shown himself to be in favor of social
equality between whites and blacks.
"What about the races?" Inquired
"Why I used to ride in horse races
when I was a boy and if 1 hadn't been
governor I would have come down
here and helped you run some. 1 did
come down and look at your race
track and 1 found It the best man
aged track I ever saw."
"Hut how about the races next
"Why, do like you did last year. He
men enough to do as your please."
The Grace Mutter.
Gov. Hlease took up then the Grace
matter. When elected governor, he
said, he came to Charleston and of
fered a position on Iiis staff to ills
friend. I.. C. A. Koessler of this city.
Mr. Roessler said: "No, I don't want
the position." Hut the governor in
sisted he must take it. Mr. Koessler
'urged him to give the place to John
P. Grace. The governor said: "I
can't do It. because Grace has never
been my friend:" Mr. Koessler said
Mr. (Since had supported the gov
ernor In bis second race. Mr. Koess
ler said he himself had a particular
reason for asking thai Mr. Grace lie
appointed. Later Mr. Grace and Mr.
Koosslei' had a conversation with the
governor at the St. John hotel, (he
upshot of which was that Mr. Grace
was made a lieutenant colonel on
the governor's staff. Afterwards, Mr.
I Grace showed the governor several,
social attentions. Introducing him at
banquets and other affairs, and this, ,
the governor said, he appreciated. In
February 1911, however, the gov-,
Crnor received a letter from Mr.
('?race urging him to make an excep- ?
tlon on his request and commission a
negro, S. W. Bennett, as notary pub
lic. This was after the general diu*
missal of notaries public, The gov
ernor replied that it was his policy
not to appoint negroes and ho ex
pected to stand by this policy. Me
said tonight that perhaps the break
between Mr. Grace and himself be
gan with this exchange of letters.
GOV. Hlease said "the i.'iit t ei snipe
commlsion that have been crawling
on their bellies in tho filth," were >^o
ln go vor to Georgia "to take the tes
timony of a man who lias attempted
to buy South Carolina olliclals, for
whom a reward of $300 is outstanding
and who is afraid to come into this
Slate. If T. H. Folder is brought be
fore an honest jury in any county In
South Carolina and I don't furnish
the evidence to convict him of con
spiring to bribe state officials, l will
resign as governor.''
