KINO MAKES A STATEMENT.
Denies He was Drunk when They
Applied ut Governor's Mansion Last
Greenville, July 20.?The Piedmont
today publishes the following Belf
Please alf\>w me space In your pa
per to reply' to the false statements
made by Cole L. Blease In his speech
at Columbia last night concerning Mr.
Watson and myself.
The simple facts will be sufficient
I for my friends and the public gen
erally to understand the situation.
Mr. Olln M. Watson and I went to
Columbia to ask for a respite of 60
days for a negro, Stake MorrlB. con
demned to be electrocuted on July 26,
so that a largely signed petition for
commutation ^ro like imprlronment
could be presented later. We went
to the mansion Sunday afternoon af
ter dinner atier making an engage
ment by telephone with him and tola
Blease our mission. We were in his
bedroom and the door shut.
He said they had the sleuths and
dictagraphs after him and he would
not do anything.
We showed him the petition signed
by many citizens and the majority of
Greenville county officials. He refused
to look at it. 1 called his attention to
tl?e fact that if anything were done
it must be done at once. I was so
surprised at his decision that I said,
"After all I have done for you, if you
won't grant this little request 1 am
done with you."
Hlease said angrily, "Get out of my
mansion," I replied, as 1 pulled on my
hat, "Damn you and your man
This \<ns in ordinary conversation
and was heard by no one except
those in the room. Mis. Blease met
Mr. Watson and me as we went down
stairs to the front door and talked
to us and told us goodbye in a friend
ly manner. She did not know what
Mr. Watson was so surprised that
he said to me. Hlease certainly could
not have understood us. or must be
drunk or crazy, and after we got to
the street, went back against my ad
vice. He did not stay long, as Blease
ordered him out in the same man
I have been a supporter of Hlease
for several years and a personal
friend. 1 remember one incident sev
eral years ago at Union, where he got
so drunk he could not get on the
train. 1 bought a ticket, put him in
a seat and told the conductor In
which pocket he would find his ticket.
It looks like if he had been drunk
Sunday and be the friend he claimed
to be. be would have taken care of
me in his house as I have done for
him, but the difference was that 1 was
not drunk Sunday. but absolutely
lie claims he sticks to bis friends.
Watson and I are both poor working
men and we were interested in Stakes
Morris because we were sorry for
him. Perhaps if there had been a
few hundred dollars in i; we might
have been rcer' cd cordially.
Blease said om the statehouse
steps last nigh, nat if Watson and I
wore gentlemen, "God pity die ho
it' be felt this way about me, why
did he write the following letter last
Columbia. June 'L'ti, 1012.
"I forward you by express prepaid,
on yesterday a supply of my books
in regard to pardons, paroles, etc.
"Please distribute them to the best
advantage possible and Should there
be any expense connected with the
distribution thereof, please send me
bill and I will reimburse you for the
"With kindest personal regards and
best wishes, very respectfully.
(Signed) "CODE L. BLEASE,
"Mr. James N. King, Greenville."
I have no favors to ask of Hlease,
but have supported him without re
ward or hope of reward because I be
lieved that he was sincere and true.
I know now that he Is neither, and a
liar besides. When he gets ready to
have me uirned out of the Bed Men
I will be glad to have him come up
and try it. I am also a Woodman
and a Mason and think that my rec
ord will compare with his any day
he wants to make the test.
I hope I won't have to make any
further statement to the papers. If
Blease will stick to the truth one time
I won't have to.
Yours very truly,
J. N. KING.
