?OY. Kl,MASK REPLIES
TO FELDER CHARGES
(Continued fronvPage Three.)
general reference to tho testimony of
8am J. Nichols, as substantiating his
statement, aro given.
He gives.the Bently parole as being
the one referred to by Felder in the
letters which were published as writ
ten to the governor from Ohio, and
he exhibits a receipt for a draft of
$25 which was sent the governor by
friends of Bently and which wag turn
ed over to the latter, he signing a re
ceipt for same. An affidavit from W.
F. Blackburn, the governor's steno
grapher, setting out the above state
ment Is submitted.
A denial that he received $2.000 for
the pardon of Rudolph Habens is made
and an affidavit from Rabens himself
settli.ft this forth is submitted, also
an affidavit from the Rev. W. A. C.
Mueller, bearing this out.
Mr. Mueller says in bis affidavit
that he personally requested the par
don; that Rabens had only twenty
eight days more to^erve and that it
Is foolish to think he paid $2.000 to
keep from serving twenty-eight days.
He also says that Rabens* people tell
him that they did not offer.'or pay one
The governor says he never heard
of F. H. Kraus? ? until the Augusta
hearing and he reiterates that .he has
genuine "T. B." letters. He repeats hi?
well-known statements about a
"frame-up" and being alble to convict
"The governor calls his "brief" "The
Proof Positive" and says: "You should
rejoice with me that once more honor
and virtue have been able to with
stand the black band assaults of In
famy and shame. He refers to "the
Burns gang" and applies to them such
epithets as "hirelings" and "cattle."
Says Tuft Renounced Burns.
He \SAys that "since _ it became
known that the Burns crowd was
hounding me down, letters and tele
grams have come to me from various
sections of the continent giving me in
formation of the dirty methods of this
detective agency. I wish to call your
attentlo? to the fact that they have
been denounced by two of the most
prominent men In the United States.
President William H. Taft, and At
torney General Wickersham." The
governor asaslls the detective In sting
ing and bitter terms.
The governor, under his sub-headfng
of "Other Future Charges and Proof,"
says that the "Felder committee' may
go into some other avenue of pollu
tion and bring forth some poor, mis
erable being in the shape of a human
being who is willing, for the Bake of
a few paltry dollars, to further steep
1b or her soul in misery, and they may,
in their, desperate efforts to get rid
of me, assail and attack those kindred
and friends dear to me. Such other
foul falsehoods as they shall send
forth shall be answered by me, If an
swer be deemed necesssry, whenever
they are made."
He then charges that the reason for
this investigation is to cloud the issue!
and keep him off the record of Judge
I Ira D. Jones, saying that "I cannot
say that they did not receive compen
Referring to the prominence given
by the newspapers to the Felder testi
mony, the governor "demands" that
the papers publish his reply in full,
and to quote the reply, "If they charge
a penny for this, then I shall have the
undoubted proof that they are cocon
spirator8 with Felder and Burns to get
from honest people their money." He
dares the newspapers to refuse to pub
lish his reply in full.
The governor classes himself with
Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson*
John C. Calhoun and Abraham Lin
coln, and styles himself as fighting the
battle of the people against the fierce
and bitter opposition of the privileged
Concluding, his statement says:
"But naught that can be said or done,
as long as I shall live, will prevent
me from going on Jn the fight I have
been making for your rigb'ts and I be
lieve that in this battle I have the
hopes, the assistance and the prayers
of a great majority of the white men
and women of South Carolina."
