TUMBU DOES THE VOTING
SCHMONSEES CETS THE PROFIT
The State knows nothing of Mr.'
Tumblin from Sullivan's township,
Laurens county, who was at the
Laurens meeting the spokesman for
?the Blease part of the crowd, but we
make bold to guess that be is not a
bad not. Me is probably poor, pos
sibly he is working another man's
land and back of his enthusiasm for
Blease Is perhaps a sincere belief that
Blease is the "poor man's friend." He
knows nothing about the alliance of
Blease with the Southern Hallway
Company and does not believe a word
of It when told of It. It's "Coley" and
"Jim" or "Sam" when Tumblin and
the governor meet; therefore Tumb
lin Is for Blease first, last and all the
time, though the heavens fall and that
some prosperous farmer who used to
be a Tillmanito is for Jones is only
another argument for Tumblin, the
poor farmer, to vote against Jones.
Tumblin expects to net nothing out
oi the election of Blease. Here and1
there Is a noisy man like Tumblin who:
will be appointed constable or will
have a "nigger" pardoned, bul the I
great mass of Tumbllns who vote for
Blease are as honest and sincere in j
their position as Banker This or

election of Blease would be a public
calamity. Tumblin of Sullivan's town
ship Is mistaken, but he is honestly
mistaken: he thinks that Blease's veto
of the medical inspection of schools
bill was in the poor man's interest,
when, In truth, it was a direct blow at
the poor man. and it is a waste of
time to argue the question with him.
Tumblin is for "Coley", he is having
a world of fun out of it, and if
"Coley" should be elected Tumblin
would plough on until another elec
The thousands of Tumbllns in South
Carolina really think that Blease Is
their champion and they do not ex
peel to net offices or other rewards
Now the case of Schmonsees of
Charleston Is quite different, although
Schmonsees and TuHinlin are equally
enthusiastic for "Coley". The election
I of Blease means something- a great
deal to Schmonsees. To him it means
What Kunz, the treasurer of the
Blease Club of Charleston, calls "a
measure of self-government." it
means that Schmonsees, on payment
of live dollars a week to t'.ie constable
appointed by Blease, or to a whole
sale blind tiger, who will "fix it" with
the Blease constable, may continue to
sell whiskey and beer in his corner
grocery without having his grocery
raided or without being enjoined. It
means, in other words, $1,000 a year
Now Schmonsees is not the only
Charleston man who will vote for

GOV. BICHS? Got Hot Coder the Col.
lnr at Gaffnej when a Dapper Drum
mer "Called" Him.
Gaffney, August 7.?Appearing be
fore an enormous crowd, Governor
Blease delivered one of hi:; usual
speeches at the base ball park in tills
city tonight. The address was possi
bly a little more highly spiced than
some. He began by abusing the news
papers, saying that one would judge
from the Gaffney newspapers that he
was not wanted here, but that the peo
ple had shown that they did want him
regardless of what Ed DeCamp, Both
Butler or .Mm Bell said. Said the
speaker: "As for little Jimmie Bell
we will let him ring his bell, and go
to ?-." He declined to talk about
Judge Jones, owing to the fact that the
Judge was absent. Speaking further
of the newspapers, the Governor said
that tomorrow he would have some
thing to say about why the newspaper
men who are accompanying the cam
paign sent out the story that they did
as to the Lancaster meeting, lie said
that he preferred putting off until the
reporters were present, but that he
would say that the explanation lay In
a quart bottle sent up by "Son Char
lie." He said that much had been
said about his pardons, but that he
had not yet started on the pardons;
merely started to running.
At the conclusion of his speech the
ladies In the audience sent up a bou
quet of flowers by a little girl. The
governor gathered the child in his
arms and said: "A little child shall
lend them. I had rather have this lit
tle girl's trust and confidence and find
her arms around my neck than the
vote of the entire world.' A man In
the audience spoke up and said: "Be
cause she doesn't know any better," at
which the governor said: "If you will
come up-town, you dirty liar, I will
give you the worst beating a coward
ever got." The man referred to an
swered that n trip to town wasn't ne
cessary and invited the governor to
come back where he was and try it
then. Trouble was avoided by police
Blease. Biuderlelch, who Is a rich
man, is a wholesale blind tiger, who
sells to Schmonsees and 25 other re
tailers. A "measure of solf-govern
ment." watch Is to sny, a holding off
of constables, means $10,000 a year
to Bruderleieh. Also, it menus to the
owner of the house In whleh Schmon
sees sells beer and whiskey a ten
ant who pays his rent regularly, so
here and there we have even an "aris
tocrat" who is in favor of "a measure
of self-government" which, in plain
English, is assurance that as a land
lord lie will not be prevented by In
junction from permitting the sale of
beer in the house that he owns.
Formerly, when Tumblin was a
mere Ttllmanlte he was bitterly op
posed to Schmonseos, Bruderleieh and
the "Aristocrat." Tumblln has no re
spect or regard tor them now, and
he doesn't know that he is pulling In
double harness with them and doing
most of the pulling at that. Tumbllll
probably would not believe that Char-j
lcstOD two years ago gave Hlease 2.
700 majority over Pealherstone. al
though the figures speak for them
selves, anil that was one-half of
Itlease's majority in the whole State.
If he does hellove it, he explains it
to himself by supposing that the peo
ple who vote for Hb'ase in Charleston
are just "poor men" like himself.
Were Tumblin to go to Charleston
tomorrow he would get no beer from
Schmonsees that he didn't pay his
Were Tu 111 bill) a "blind tiger" or a
gambler he would get something out
of Blensoism besides the thrill and
joy oT yelling for "Coley". Schmonsees
is turning his Hleaseisin into cold
cash every hour, and so is Bruderleieh,
who is worth a quarter of a million
dollars. If yon. Mr. College Grad
uate, were a law-breaker and whole
sale blind tiger, you would vote for
Hlease and contribute money to bis
campaign, wouldn't you?
Tumblin is fairly representative
perhaps of 10,000 or 15,000 men who
are shouting for Blease. They are
honest, they are sincere, they are
proud of their state, their fathers
were gallant soldiers and they are
convinced that "Coley" Is the only
friend of the "poor man" that Is left.

no one is angry with him.
