WHAT BLEASE FACTION PROPOSES
IE FIRST PRIMARY IS THROWN OUT
Full Ticket Will be Put out for All State Offices In the
General Election and (Nominations of First Primary

ded, According to- Blease "Prophet."
Columbia, Sept. 18.?"In cnse
tre action of tills executive committee
J makes it necessary for Governor
Blease, as the nominee of the demo
cratic primary, to contest in the gen
eral election against Ira 13. Jones or
some other independent candidate for
governor, we have from various men
of more or less prominence in poli
tics the following state ticket sug
gested to US for the Bleaseites of
regular democrats to put out:
For governor. Cole L. Blease, of
Newberry; for lieutenant governor,
Thos. F. Brantley, of Orangeburg;
secretary of state. J. V. Wallace, of
Charleston; Comptroller General, .las.
H. Craig. of Anderson; state treas
urer, Newton L. Bennett, of Spartan
burg; adjutant general. Oscar W.
Habb of Laurens; commissioner of
agriculture. Jas. Norton, of Mullins;
attorney general, Thos. H. Peoples,
of Blackville; railroad commissioner,
John G. Richards, of Kcrshaw; su
perintendent of education. J. B.
Swearingen, of Edgeflold, is the bold j
statement in a letter dealing with the
general political situation in South
Carolina, written by one of the "inner
circle" of the Blease camp and be
lieved to be agreeable to the gover
nor himself, if appeal must be made
to the general election to decide
the state officers for the next two
The naming of a ticket headed by
Cole L. Blease makes it certain that
no matter what the action of the |
state committee, provided they find
Blease not the nominee or order a
second election, that the governor will
refuse to recognize the action of the
committee and will go into the gen
eral election claiming to be the regu
lar nominee of the democratic party.
In fact it is believed on all sides
that the governor would refuse to go
I Into a second primary if ordered now
and that he will claim that the
I state committee nas usurped power
} In ordering another primary. That
j they have no legal right to do so.
j Another significant part of this
I letter which is recognized here as at
I least "semi-official," is this: "An
} other thing which will adtl strength
j to the regular ticket is the matter <>f
j election commissioners and managers.
I The governor appoints the connnis
| sioners, both state and national, and

j will, of course, gee to it that none but
j regular, straight-out democrats are
I appointed to fill those positions, and
[ they, in turn, will select none but

I election managers, in that way the
white men of the state will retain
control of the election machinery, and
it may he that In case there are inde
pendent candidates in the field the
regular democrats will still be able
to hold the 'black peril' down to the
usual mimimum, thus giving these
misguided people (in ease they go

The letter, which is taken as a
statement of the Blease side of the
present wrangle in South Carolina
and outlines the course which that
faction will follow, attacks the state
executive committee as a partisan
body, over-riding the will of the peo
ple, taking unto themselves powers
which they haven't, and procrasti
nating as much as possible. Particu
lar attention is paid lo .lohn Gary
Rvnns, state chairman, and W. F.
Stevenson, chairman of the sub
committee probing into the alleged
frauds. Reference Is made to the
dilatory tactics of the committee, and
bitterly attacks Ihe action they have
taken. The semi-official statement
declares that the committee has no
power to order another primary now
and intimates that an ordering of an
other primary would be illegal and
that if the election for governor is
thrown out on account of fraud it
\ will invalidate the nomination for
general assembly and all country offl
' cers and throw them into the general
The War Talk.
Disavowment is made for responsi
bility of the "war talk" which has
been indulged in by some of the
Bleaseites in these words: "We are
In no wiso responsible for the 'wild
fulminatlon' that followed the pro
crastinating course of the partisan
committee and the unjust, unreason
able and outrageous untruthful, atti
tude of a major portion of the press,
pulpit and various organisations of
this state are solely responsible for it.
They kindled tho fires of resentment
I and fanned the flames of hatred by
continually referring to Governor
Bl ease's political adherents as "an
archists, hoodlums, lower element,
Ignorant, vicious and prejudiced,' and
now they wonder at the dangerous
aspect of the storm. 'He that sow
eth the wind shall reap the whirl
wind' is a quotation that should have
?been heeded in tho convention last
May," and then goes on to hold out
the olive branch to the opposing fac
tion If they "will i omo into the fold"
and present a solid front to the com
The state committee is given a
veiled threat in this matter. An
other point to be considered in this
settlement of family affairs, as it
were is this: The constitution of
South Carolina imposes upon the
governor the duty of appointing the
county treasurers, auditors, masters
in equity, judges of probate and
magistrates. Ueleaes him from the
primary obligation to respect the
nomination, and he can, and we think
would, appoint to those offices whom
he pleases. That would afford an
ideal opportunity to put into more ex
tensive operation tin famous declara
tion: 'I stand by my friends.'"
As To Tillman.
That Senator Tillman, in the eyes
of the BleaseitOS, has made amends,
in a large degree, for what they con
sidered his "desertion" by advocating
the election of Jones in the first pri
mary, by his letter to John Gary
j Evans demanding Instant action on
the part of the executive committee
and favoring the declaring of Blease
the nominee, Is evidenced by this
statement: "It should not be forgot
ten that Senator Tillman also re
ceived the nomination, on the face of
the returns, and should, and undoubt
edly will he, considered the actual
nominee by the regular democracy
and supported accordingly in the
next general assembly When they go
into the matter of election for a
United States senator." Senator Till
man seems to he sol hi once more
with the Blease faction.
One Is struck by the fact that the
semi-official "defi" has gone forth in
this announcement that, if necessary,
I the Blcaseitos will make an onslaught
on the whole of the statehouse offi
cials the next time they get a shot
and In the general election if it goes
that far. Only two of the accredited
nominees. John (I. Richards, for rail
road commissioner, and .1. B, Swear
Ingen, superintendent of education,
escaped and are acceptable to the
Bleaseites. The fact that Mr. Swear
ingen. a nephew of Senator Tillman.
is acceptable is significant. The state
house officials running without, oppo
sition in the primary were R. M.
McCown, secretary of state; A. \v.
Jones, comptroller general; 13. J.
Watson, commissioner of agriculture;
W. W. Moore, adjutant general; ('has.
A. Smith, lieutenant governor. None
of these are acceptable to the Blease
ites for they are all considered as
unfriendly to the governor and will
bo marked for slaughter if an appeal
Is made to the general election.
The Bleaseites. from this suggested
ticket, would take Oscar W. Bahh. at
present assistant adjutant general,
and make him adjutant general over
W. W. Moore, incumbent, and run
