LARGEST CROWD YET
(Continued from Pago Two.)
anything more to do with it?'
"You certainly did." replied the
Tennessee attorney. Harry Stokes, of
Nashville, who stood near the stand.
Then the governor took up the did
tagraph incident, now listed among
the classics of South Carolina po
litical history. "You had a great
machine here not long ago," he said.
"They tried to drag down one of
your best young men by a infernal
lying dictagraph In order to hurt
Colo Dclase. What did they get?
Nothing but the damdest beating you
ever beard of on August 27. You had
another happening. 1 don't like to
mention it. Hut somebody asked me,
'Why didn't they serve brains with
the eggs?' and l t id them, 'Because
the Jones men didn't have enough
brains.' " (This was in reference to
the throwing of rotten eggs from the
gallery at John I'. Grace, mayor of
Charleston, when Mr, Grace spoke re
cently in the theatre here.)
"It was a great crime," the speaker
went on. "when in Spartanburg some
people howled down a speaker, but at
Manning, when the mayor stood in
the crowd and let Jones wh? 'ps howl
me down, he was a great man."
Puts 0. b. on Johnson.
Governor Blease in passing put his
o. k. on Ollll Ii- Johnson, mayor of
Spartanburg, who has been severely
criticised because of his attitude In
regard to the disorder at the Grace
meeting. "You'll never have a more
honorable man." said the governor,
"nor greater friend of the poor man
than Spartanburg has In the mayor's
Chair right now. You're going to
send him up higher, too."
Jones, Blease said, was one of those
who voted to retire Wade Hampton,
let some of the same crowd who
swor they would never vote for a
man who voted against General Hamil
ton were now lined up behind Jones.
"He says the Daughters of the Con
federacy are praying for him. Yes.
and the Sons of the Confederacy and
those who fought in the war are not
praying so much but they are voting
for Cole Dlease. I suspect that some
of those same Daughters of the Con
federacy had better be praying for
their husbands, who lie around the
clubs in Columbia and play poker and
Kopcnts Old Cbanre.
Repeating bis familiar declaration
that Judge Jones wronged General
Hampton by crediting Irby instead of
Hampton with "stamping out Inde
pcndcntlsm," the speaker said, "Lot's
see what Irby said of your fellow
townsman. John Gary Evans." and
read from a memorandum a string of
epithets Including "traitor," "liar,"
and several other terms of like sever
ity. He did not say when or In what
circumstances this language was used
by the late Senator Irby.
('lies News ami Courier.
Governor Blease read an editorial
printed in the Charleston News and
Courier of April 17. last, in which the
method emp".< > < d by the Atlanta de
tectives engaged In tie Bench case at
Aiken by Solicitor Gunter and Mayor
Gyles was clrticlseri. "Yet after that,"
said the governor, "they published on
me a dirty, filthy story that was not
fit to rea din the humblest negro
hovel in the state. In one case, it
was to convict a millionaire, in the
other to hint nie for political pur
poses. Then it was 'Anything, Lord,
to beat Dlease!" " The speaker de
clared Jenes would never be elected
governor, because th people would
not make "that man" governor in
name only and let "Gonzales'' be gov
ernor in reality.
"They quoted," he said, "from Till
man today. They've been doing ev
erything they COUld to get him to

that gang that runs The State and
The Spart a n hurt' Herald. Jones says
that if you take the ?nigger" out of
my speech, there's nothing but froth
i left, but I found out today that if you
take the corkscrew out of his pocket,
he has no brains left." Judge Jones,
the governor said, had not told him.
because he was afraid "Gonzales"
would take him out and spank him,
whether or not be would order out
militia to defend a negro who laid his
hands on a white woman."
Sarcastic on Grace.
Sarcastically referring to the sup
port of Judge Jones' candidacy bj
Mayor Grace, of Charleston, Governor
Dlease lapsed into a parody:
"Amaslng Grace, how sweet Die sound
'Tis music around on Jones' ground.''
Replying to Judge Jones' declara
tion that specified porsons, formerly
legislators from this county, had vot
ed with Judge Jones on the separate
coach bill, the speaker said that all
of these were dead bill one. Stanyarne
Wilson. "And he." said the governor,
"is quietly sleeping in political pri
vate life. I'm satisfied if he were
here he would say he was sorry he
voted that way."
The governor declared that the men
who earned their bread by the sweat
of their brows would re-elect him,
because he was the one governor
whom the newnpapers could not con
Long continued npplauso broke out
as the governor retired. His speech
was the last of the day.
Lyon Gives Sensation.
Fr?ser Lyon, attorney general, pro
vided the sensation of the day this
afternon when he anonuneed. In the
course of the stn4e campaign meeting,
that helntended to swear out a war
rant shortly for the arrest of his op
ponent, Harnard B. Evans, under the
criminal statute regarding slander and
libel which was enacted at the last
session of the general assembly.
This declaration followed the rep
etition In Evans' nddress from the
stand of highly scandalous charges
against. Mr. L-yon and various other
persons, which Evans has been mak
ing at other meetings during the
campaign. Mr. Lyon said he would
not trouble himself today to make
more than a general denial of Evans1
mlsstatements. but he had asked
friends on the stnnd to note Evans'
utterances for future use, and pur
posed to ascertain, by a test of bis
case, whether such language could
lawfully be used on the stump, or
elsewhere. Mr. Lyon did not say when
prosecution would be commenced.
The case will be brought at Spartan*
Among the portions of E vans'
speech here which may figure in the
promised prosectuion are the follow
**lf Lyon Can I'roto.'1
"If he (Lyon) can prove, by afnda
vit, original record, word of mouth or
any other means, that a dollar has
been put into the pocket of George L.
Salter by others than Frank & Son,
of Augusta, Qa., US. IL Rombert, .1.
Frank Lyon or anybody else to the
contrary, notwithstanding) 1 will
withdraw from this race. 1 had a
transaction with a man In Saluda who
tried to cheat me out of my fee, and
1 Blglicd that Chech as agent and at
torney in fact." This was in answer
to allegations by Mr. Lyon, supported
by certain documentary evidence, that
Kvans retained the proceeds of it Check
which had been sent by Frank & Soil,
money lenders of Augusta, to George
L. Salter. of Saluda, through Kvans,
and which Evans endorsed and cash
ed without authority; the amount be
ing made good by 13. it. Evans' broth
er, .loin) Gary Evans, of Spartanburg,
after B. it. Kvans had been threaten
ed With criminal prosecution. Kvans
today displayed an application made
by one George L. Snltur to Prank
Son for a loan oT $150 O ncet'taln land
in Saluda county. The application
designated Evans as "agent and at
torney in fact for Sailer." The check
In question was endorsed, it is said.
"It. it. Kvans. attorney in fact."
Other Sensational Statements.
Other statements made by Itaruard
' Kvans today were such as this: I
went to the town of Saluda and
branded a thieving sheriff as an in
famous thief, a liar and a tlcbttticher
of women, and I branded hint lie
cause he stole my own receipt from
my olllce. Yet your attorney gotlCinl
lias the temerity to present a certifi
cate from Saluda that It. It. Kvans is
not an honest man, and those men
who signed it are composed of blind
tigers, thieves, incendiaries and de
bauchees of women; especially two
of them, I-:. \V. Abies and It. W.
Crouch, wlio lias the temerity to run
for the sente today. II the Aetna \
Hartford lire insurance companies did
their duty, they would be behind the
bars as incendiaries. One was cilllgllt
in the act and compromised. The
other destroyed the libraries of all
the attorneys of Saluda. Ellgene \V.
Abies is lower than that." Here
followed an unprintable charge against
Itefcrs to Rev. ItutrtrotL
Evans said, regarding Iiis most se
rious charge against Mr. Aide, that
the facts were known to Rov. W. Bltg
gott, of Ionian. "If he doesn't prove
it." he said, "bring him to Kvans. and
though lie lie a preacher, I will de
nounce him as a falsifier."
"What is the record of your attor
ney general?" he asked, and proceed
ed to say hat out of the more than
$1,365,000 assets of the state dispen
sary less than $250,000 was realized,
though every dollar misspent in wind
ing up the dispensary was taken from
the school children, "and the man
who would rob a. child is the lowest
creature that walks the earth."
Heaping Cliurfcs Cpon Lyon.
"What else has lie done as regards
your sinking fund?" said Kvans. The
speaker referred to a recent resolu
tion passed by the sinking fund com*
mission, authorizing employment of
counsel in New York, Chicago or Bal
timore to aid in refunding $5,500,000
of slate bonds next year, and said:
"Did you ever hoar of a more out
rageous scheme to dobnuclt the people
in your life?"
Again, still referring to Mr. Lyon
Kvans said: "He paid B. I. Abltoy
$50,000 for signing a receipt for $100.
oon of your Common school money."
Tribute to .Limes II. Carlisle.
Mr. Lyon paid mnaglilflccnl tribute
to tho late .lames II. Carlisle, presi
dent of Wofford college, who was ins
preceptor for four years and to whom
lie ascribed much in his nature that
favored law-loving, law-abiding and
decency. Otherwise Mr. Lyon's ad
dress yesterday was very much like
some of his campaign speeches in
other eounties. though he did not
mention his opponents and spoke
mostly of his own record. It was in
the course of a categorical reply to
the speeeii of Barnard Evans that he
announced his intention of prosecut
ing Kvans for slander.
T. II. Pooples and .1. It. Harle, also
candidates for attorney general, made
substantially their usual speeches.
There was considerable applause for
The statute under which Mr. Lyon's
case against Evans will he brought
is as follows:
"Acte N. 142, Section I. Be it on
aetod by the general assembly of the
state of South Carolina: Any person
