THE PROMISED PROOE ON BLE?SE
Spartanburg, S. C, Aug 17?John
P. Grace, mayor of Charleston, who
came to Kpartanburg to attend the
Panama canal conference, yesterday
gave out for publication a lotter from
Governor Cole L. Blease, proving that
Blease told an untruth when he said
ho believed that Mr. Grace had never
Mr. Grace left for Charleston last
night. He said there was no doubt
that Judge Jones would carry Char
leston and that a conservative esti
mate was that his majority would bo
Following is a statement made by
Mayor Grace, together with the lotter
"I believe I have shot so many
holes in Blease's veracity that there
la hardly a place left in it where 1
might strike. But It Is necessary for
me to do so In order to keep a prom
ise which I made In my first reply
to BleaBe In the controversy \fhlch a
few weeks ago waged between us.
"It will be recalled that Blease
made this statement: 'I desire to
state that I have never made a con
fidant of John P. Grace In any man
ner, shape or form. 1 knew that hej
opposed me In the first primary two
years ago. und I have never believed
that he supported me, or even voted
for me In the second primary?'
"Replying to this, I said: 'This, of j
course, he knows Is a lie and fortv
nately for me the proof of it Is
I writing. Not only did I support him
before and In the first primary, but
I wrote the strongest kind of edito
rials which were sent to him and
copied in some of the few otate pa
pers that were supporting him. If 1
mistake not. In the Newberry Herald
and News for one.
"'I nm at Glenn Springs and 1
have not access to my lotter files,
but remember distinctly receiving a
very appreciative letter from him,
hanking me most cordially for this
"In Iiis reply to this Interview and
with the full opportunity on his part
to consult his letter files, he still
sticks to his original lie, reiterating
it in the following words: 'As to
Grnce"s statement that he supported
me, he told me himself that he did
not support me In the first primary
and I was Informed by those who had
charge of affairs for me In Charleston
that he was against me and for Me
Lcod, but that ho claimed to be for
me In the second place?'
"To which I again replied, as fol
"'1 expressed great surprise In my
recent Interview that Rlease would go
so far as to Intimate at this time that
he ever had any doubt that I sup
ported him in both the first and sec
ond primaries, and he repeats these
doubhts In bis recent Interview, going
even so far as to say he (meaning
me) told me himself that he did not
support me In the first primary.'
"I would like to know where and
when I ever told him this. This Is
the most mendacious lie that Rlease
has ever uttered, because It carries
with it a monstrous and manifest ab
surdity. 1 would be in a very diffi
cult position but that fortunately the
proof is clean not only that I did sup
port him In the first primary, but
that he and everybody else knew it.
Moreover, as I said in my Interview,
'it is all In writing but unfortunately
I have not a copy of my newspaper
llles with me at Glenn Springs. I
will take this phase up later.'
"1 find that my memory was good,
because upon my return to Charles
ton, at great pains, I went through
my old letter flies and amongst many
other letters from Blease, all mani
festing most cordial and appreciative
friendship, I find the following let

* TILLMAN FLOUNDERS. ?
Maybe we aro mistaken about It,
and it is all so big and broad and
great as to bo beyond our complehen
slon; but even recognizing such a pos
sibility, we have the temerity to re
mark that the position of Senator Tin
man, as outlined In his open letter,
would be amusing if it were not more
or less pitiable.
While Senator Tillman has said and
done things in this present campaign,
especially back before the canvass
opened, that seemed to involve him
in a partisan manner, if all that
should be wiped out, he could not
avoid being mixed up with it in a way
that would swing votes to Blease or
Jones even though he were dead.
So far as the two candidates are
concerned, their status is about like
tills: Judge Jones is a former Tillman
lte with an anti-Tillman following,
and Governor lllease is a former an
ti-Tillmanite with a Tlllmanite follow-j
ing. This may not be strictly true as
to Governor Blease; but our recollec
tion is that during his early political
days lie was not especially enthusias
tic for Tillman. But nevertheless. It
is a fact beyond dispute that original
Tillmanism is now the strongest ele
ment behind Governor Blease, just as
original anti-TUlmanlsm Is the ele
ment upon which the strength of
Judge Jones is based. There are ex
ceptions in both cases; but the excep
tions are only sufficiently numerous
to prove the rule.
So far as the primary campaign of
today being any nastier than was the
campaigns of the eurly nineties Is con
cerned, that Is all buncombe. Those
who are unable to remember have
only to look back Into the newspapers
of the day for corroboratlon of the
statement. Neither Judge Jones nor
Governor Blease has indulged in any
hotter language than was used by
Senator Tillman in the old days, and
both have talked a? much high plane
talk as he ever talked. We do not
want to be understood as justifying
the exhibition now going on. We are
merely stating the truth. And also it
is a fact that in the old days Tillman
made as many unfounded and unwar
ranted charges against the crowd he
was fighting, as are now being made
by either Judge Jones or Governor
Blease. In those days Senator Till
man's motto was, "I make the chargesi
and it is up to you to disprove them."
He made charges against the other
side that it was never able to disprove,
and they made charges against him
that remain disproved until this
day. The fact remains, also, that
Governor Blesae has done more dl3
proving than Senator Tillman ev r
The senator tells us that he disap
proves the idea of a United States sen
ator interfering in state politics. It
will be remembered that that was the
pretext on which Wade Hampon was
defeated; yet It was common talk at
the time that Tillman helped John
Gary Evans all he could in that gen
tleman's first race for the United
State senate and in subsequent races.
Alleged Tillman letter in behalf of
Hon. John G. Richards figured in the
gubernatorial primary of two years
ago. and now the senator tells us
frankly that if he could have had his
way John G. Richards would have
been governor now. Vet he does not
try to Interfere, he says, tl Is a fact
that ills attempted Interference did
not amount to much then; but if the
senator really thinks he Is going to
get off lightly this time, he is badly
The Jones crowd, the senator's for
mer enemies, want him to come out
for Jones. Their real reason, of
course, is political; but they are put
ting it on "personal" grounds only.
They don't see how the senator can
remain neutral as between such a line
man as is Judge Jones and such a
"buccaneer" as Gov. Blease. and they
Insist that this is reason enough for
anybody. As a matter of fact we are
Inclined to think that for various rea
sons, mainly through envy of Gover
nor Blease for out-Tillmaning Till
man, the senator would like to see
Jones elected, and if It was an off-year
with him he would be for Jones; but
ns It Is. he is going to keep close to
the shore. He still has sense enough
to know that with such a strong prolv
ability of the election being settled in
the first primary, he cannot feel any
security thnt the Jones |>eople will
vote for him anyway, and knows full
well that if lie undertakes to stick his
knife into Governor Blease, the
Bleaseltes will certainly scratch, him
to the tune of 35.000 or 40,00 votes.
In the general assertion of the sen
ator that there are "hundreds of Till
'manttes in the state who /ire better
exponents of Tillmanlsm than either
Jones, Belase or Duncan, we agree
most heartily; but that seems to be
begging the (|uestion a little. There
are no doubt better exponents of Tlll
manlam in the state than even Till
man Is, or Tillman ever was; but they
are not In this race and are not to be
considered In connection with tho
present coutrovoruy. Tho question
now Is mainly between Hlease and
Jones and the respective parties be
No, we do not believe that Judge
Jones believes in social equality, nor
do wo believe that the Ibsuo involves
the personality of either Bleuse or
Jones, nor do we believe that the otato
will be lost or ruined whichever way
this thing goes. All wo see in it Is a
struggle for power, the event of which
struggle is to be the domination of
Tillmanlsm or antl-Tillmanlsm, which
ever side may win. and with which
terms Hleaselsm and Joneslsm have
now become Identical.?The Yorkvllle
