SCORES COL. FELDER
Apparently Greatly Pleased at flic
Tarn of Events in Atlanta where
Felder Js in Hot Water.
Columbia, May 24.?Thos. Ii. Folder,
the Atlanta attorney, now charged
with alleged bribery in Atlanta, <!a.,
waa excoriated this morning by Gov
ernor Cole L. Dlease. The Govornor
also refers to W. F. Stevenson, rep
resentative from Chcstertleld, and
former Attorney General J. Fr?ser Ly
on, as well as H. B. Carlisle, Senator
from Spartan burg county, who was
chairman of the dispensary Investi
gating committee, that took the Burns
Felder detectives to Augusta last sum
Governor Mease's dictated inter
"I do not see that It Is necessary for
me to give out any interview or to
have anything to say. it is not in
side my State and I do not suppose
anybody that knows Tom Felder
would be surprised if he is guilty or
if this is a scheme worked up by him
:o get a little cheap notoriety and ad
vertisement. However, I presume that
tho members of the Atlanta Bar will
irnmeditely furnish certificates of
Character for their darling Tommy,
and show that he Is above suspicion
and a- gentleman of the highest char
acter, with an unbelunlshed reputation
as a man and attorney, and If a Court
of Georgia should order his arrest that
Gen. Anderson will forthwith call out
the militia and have him released, as
Gen. Anderson, his former partner
and life-long friend, knows of his
character and reputation and will not
for a moment allow his Tommy to be
itcrfered with, and I nin satisfied
'hat poor little misled Joe Brown has
had his pardon clerk already fixing
up a release for bis innocent darling
In case of any conviction. And as a
matter of course, the gUttCI'-Snlpca
who went over to Augusta from
South Carolina will hurry to offer
their services to go sweet Tommy's
bond, and a'so to appear in tho
Courts, along with Seaboard Bill and
Iiis friend. .1. Fr?ser Lyon, who have
heretofore been bis bosom friends in

Felder Well Known.
Thos. B. Folder is well know
throughout South Carolina. As attor
ney for the Ansel dispensary winding
up com in; iflion hO secured the cvldcnc
which resulted In over $600,000 being
recovered to the State from liquor
houses which had overcharged the old
Stiitc dispensary. After Qovemor
Bloase came Into oiiice and the Ansel
commission wore fired a warrant
charging Felder with having attempt
ed to make a "frame-up" with H. H.
Kvans, of Newborry, to sell liquor to
tho State dispensary while IS vans was
on the board was taken out In New
berry and a reward was offered for
the arrest of Col. Felder. Requisition
papers drawn on Governor Brown, of
Georgia, by Governor Blease for Col.
Felder were refused. The N'ewberry
grand jurj returned a "no bill' in this
case later on.
Col. Folder's charges against Gov.
Blease and his sensational letters to
the press of South Carolina promis
ing to write a book on the Governor,
and finally his employing of Detec
tive William .1. Burns In attempting
to prove oiUcial corruption in South
Carolina, the testimony at Augusta,
the reply by Governor Blease and the
1 at tor's re-election, all are recalled by
the latest news from Atlanta.
