SOMETHING ABOUT IRA B. JONES
It in right that the people of South
Carolina should know the fact about
the candidates In the race for gover
nor before the 27th. of August becauso
no one cun vote properly unless he
votes Intelligently and to vote Intelli
gently one must know the record of
the candidates. This article Is writ
tun to let the people know more about
Ira B. Jones.
Few people know tbut Judge Jones
Is u man of the people. He is proud
of the fact that In Newbery County,
where he was born, there are still
people living who remember that his
faihei ?vut> & respected carpenter and
his mother assisted her husband in
the support of the fumlly by sewing
for the neighbors.
As Student and Young Luwyer.
Almost from childhood Ira B. [
Jones looked at lifo seriously. His
schoolmates remember that often in
the afternoon when they were at play
be would go in early to study for bis
classes the next day, and they testify |
to the fact that he gave early prom
ise of becoming an upright man and
a useful citizen.
By careful study and by taking ad
vantage of such meager opportuni
ties as were offered, he obtained a
fair education. Schools were not
then what they are now and that la
probably the reason why Judge Jones
remembering his own difficulties and
wishing to smooth the road for other
poor boys, declared that as governor
"The Improvement and development
of the common schools shall have my
keen interest and hearty support."
It would he easy to tell and might
be interesting to hear how young
Jones having gotten an education
moved to Lancaster county and began
the practice of law. How clients came
slowly at first and how later having
inspired the confidence of the people
In his home town he acquired a large
ami paying practice. What we are
chiefly interested in, howevr, is his
In 1890 Ira B. Jones was elected to
the legislature from Lancastercounty
and it is evident that he was widely
known and that his ability had been
recognized, for he was at once made
chairman of the ways and means com
mittee of the bouse and was later
elected Its speaker. Those were stir
ring times, for the great reform move
ment had just swept over South Caro
lina and party spirit ran high. Sen
ator Tlllman, then governor, was In
stituting inatty needed reforms and
Judge Jones, as speaker of the house,
did efficient service. Be it said to his
credit, however, that although the
whole state was aroused by political
animosities, Judge Jones so conduct
ed himself as to receive the hearty
applause of frleilds and at the same
time, by his fairness, be won the re
spect and confidence of those who had
been his political opponents.
It came, therefore, as a natural re
ward for service that in 180G be was
elected associate justice of the high
est court in the state. It may be men
tioned in passing that bis present op
ponent lu the race for governor sec
onded his nomination and voted for
htm for associate justice. Having
served twelve years as associate Jus
tice, in 1909, upon the retirement of
Chief Justice Pope, Judge Jones was
elevated to the position of chief jus
tice, which is the highest judicial po
sition In the gift of the state.
It may be truthfully said that no
Judge In South Carolina In many years
has enjoyed greater reputation both
[for ability and honesty than Ira B.
Jones. The same industry and con
scientious performance of duty which
wa? DOtlce&ble in him as a younK man
have characterized his work as a
He has been the recipient of honors
from his fellow men .and the emolu
ments of office, but the satisfaction of
a hard day's work well done has ever
been his best reward.
Amont; the charges hurled at Judge
Jones by bis political opponent Is that
he has leaned toward corporations.
Sufllce It to say that as attorney he
never represented a corporation and
as a Judge he repeatedly upheld largo
verdicts against the corporations. In
the case of Rhodes against the Gran
by Cotton Mills of Columbia, he up
held a verdict for $8,000.00 In favor
of Rhodes on the ground that there
was evidence that he had been unjustly
discharged and blacklisted by the cot
ton mills. The verdict which he sus
tained against the railroads would run
up into the hundreds of thousands of
dollars, there being one verdict
against the Southern Rail ray Company
for $25,000 and many others for large
He has never leaned either toward
or against corporations, but his de
cisions and rulings have been those of
what every judge sould be?just and
fair to all.
As Citizen, Lawyer, Legislator,
Judge and Chief of Justice, Ira. B.
Jones has "Made Good." He has llvod
an upright moral life; is a consclen
clous member of the Associate Re
formed Presbyterian Church, Is tem
perate in his habits, and has measur
ed up to all the requirements of a true
and useful man. It should be remem
bered that this man who is now be
fore the people in the race for Gov
ernor has never in his life been charg
ed with anything unbecoming the
highest and best citizen until his op
ponent brought charges against him.
The absurdity of these charges can
best be shown by the fact that Cole
L. Blcase himself voted for Judge
Jones for United States Senator in
1909 with such men as Frank B, Gary,
LeGrand Walker, J. L. Coker and oth
er high men. To try to make South
Carolinians believe that this man who
has been their judge believes In so
ciel equality between the races Is so
evidently a trick to catch votes as
to need no exposure.
Ira B. Jones is no political experi
ment, and as a governor, he may be
counted on to give the people the same
honest, faithful and Intelligent ser
vice which has always characterized
his work in their behalf.
