AT AIKEIN MEETIING
?Mj'olton Mill Km ploy e" Scores Mease's
?Urse hi Asking Tin.? Questioner
Po tho Editor of The State:
I notice by today's papers that yes
terday's campaign meeting at Alken
was reported as being a Blease meet
ing. Prom the standpoint of noise it
was, but from the standpoint of votes
it was not. Tho Jones men antici
pated their move by scattering men
through the crowd to find out where
the Blease supporters came from. Wo
know that Saludo furnished 60, Edge
field 40. Barnwoll 7r., Columbia i<>.
and AugUStO 200, making a total of
450 Hlease phonographs that can not
vote In Alken county. These men
were instructed how to vote in the
hand primaries, viz.: by putting both
hands up. Then there were lots of
women and children who voted the
same way. so you can readily see that
when you eliminate these socalled
votes, he had a very slim showing in
Hut the most important happening
at the meeting was In some way over
looked by the correspondent. You
mentioned that some one who inter
rupted Oov. Hlease was arrested ami
hustled away from the crowd. The
man that was arrested was P, It.
Beaufort, a prominent merchant of
this town and a nephew by marriage
of Judge Jones. Mr. Beaufort was
sitting with his wife ami some of the
most prominent ladies in Alken, and
when Blenso mad" his remarks about
.lodge Jones being in favor of social
equality, he wanted to know why
Hlease had vtotcd for Judge Jones
after he had voted against the "Jim
Crow" car bill. Blease did not reply
to this question, and Mr. Heaufort re
peated the question, then Hlease turn
ed to the chairman and demanded
that the man Interrupting him he
stopped, then faced the audience and
pointing and looking at Mr. Heaufort
said: "Arrest that man." Me con
tinued looking and pointing until two
special policemen, both ardent Hlease
men, rushed up. grabbed Mr. Heau
fort and dragged him through the
crowd as though he had committed
a most heinous crime. When he got
clear of the crowd Mr. Heaufort gave
bond and was released, but another
Citizen of our town came near being
?arrested by the same officers, merely
because he came up to offer financial
assistance to Mr. Heaufort in ease he
This was nothing short of a high
handed outrage, as Mr. Heaufort or
any other voter has a right to ask
Blenso, Jones of any other candidate
questions; and they should not ap ear
in public and ask to he elected to of- j i
lice and receive the people's money as
a salary unless they expect to bo 11
asked questions, and to answer thorn
as well, which Hlease failed to do in
this case This is a free country and
we have a right to free speech, yet
here WO see the governor of the State
having a man arrested for asking him
a question, that lie i Hlease) did not
care to answer. Isn't that a nice ex
ample for him to set?
We can not biomo the city officials,
as they apologized to Mr. Heaufort
ami returned the money that he had
put up as bond. In fact, they were
not responsible for his arrest. This
action, entirely uncalled for, as it
was on the part of the governor, has
made the citizens of this town, as well
as in other places, very Indignant

VICTIM OK STEAM ROLLER,
I.aureus Hoy Or er-ridden in the Halls
of the Georgia Legislature.
The following account of high-hand
ed steam roller methods was taken
from the Augusta Chronicle Saturday,
the victim of steam roller tactics this
time being an old Laurens boy, the
son of Mr. and Mrs. Cresswell Garl
Ington, of this city:
Atlanta, da., July 2t>.?Representa
tive Sam Garltngton of Richmond was
directly in the path of the house steam
roller this morning, but he stood with
out flinching until he ?ot the flatten
ing out he knew had been scheduled
His disaster came In an effort to
Itnve the session of the house extended
for thirty minutes to pass three meas
ures recommended by his committee,
:ho motion to that effect losing 81 to
Ml". Garlington, however, availed
timself of the opportunity to voice
iis protest against the wall interposed
0 certain legislation by the rules
"I think the cry here that certain
ucnsiiros could not be passed in an
txtcndod session of thirty minutes, on
he complaint that there wasn't siifli
?ient time for proper consideration, is
iheer buncombe," said tlx' Richmond
lu mber with considerable heat. "I sit
tore and see the time of this house
aken up with long-winded discussion
)t' such measures as the 'Pippins bill
>r the dog tax, while measures of
vital Interest and concern to the con
stituency of some of us Is choked to
death in the rules committee or by
the tact that our bills are so far down
on the calendar there is no hope of
reaching them, What chance does the
member, whoso county is way down
in the alphabet ?R, S, T, etc.?stand
to get his bills thiough unless the
rules committee sees fit to let him
have a show? If this sort of tiling
is to continue I think we had as well
close down right now and go home."
Mr. Newsomc of Olnscock also added
Iiis protest, While Mr. I Inrdetnan, vlco
chaiiman of the rules committee, de
fended Iiis committee, saying that Uli
less some check was brought to bear
there would be a riot of wild legisla

The signal was given the steam
