GEN. B. H. TEAGUE
Explains .Method of Distributing I
Fund of si,mi Appropriated by the
Gen. B. IL Teague, of Alken, in
whose hands was left the disposition
of the fund -of $1,000 provided by the
state legislature for the purpose of
paying the railroad fare of veterans
to the Gettysburg Reunion, has been
severely criticised by the old soldiers
and others for the manner In which
the fund was distributed. It appears
as if Gen. Teague distributed the
money to properly accredited old
soldiers in order of their application,
late applicants getting nothing. The
following letter adresscd to Gen.
Teague and published in The State,
shows the tenor of 'tha, criticisms
heaped upon him:
"Your post card of the 1 Ith list.,
stating that you had given checks to
Gl applicants and had exhausted the
appropriation by the State, etc., etc.,
"I do not understand by what au
thority you did this. For you know at
tho State reunion, the matter was tak
en up and there was motion, which
prevailed, giving each soldior who par
ticipated in the' battle of Gettysburg,
and desired to go to the reunion
there $10. Afterwards this action on
the part of our State reunion was re
considered, because at $10 each the
appropriation might be exhausted be
fore It went around, and some good
and worthy soldiers would be cut out;
anil that one soldier who fought in
the battle of Gettysburg was just as
much entitled to his proportionate
share of the State appropriation or
another, which he was. Therefore,
the understanding, as I understand
it. was for you to get In the names of
all who Intended to go to the Get
tysburg reunion and apportion said
appropriation to them.
"I sent in some names to you who
fought in the battle of Gettysburg and
made affidavit to this effect, certified to
by ii comrade. They were justly en
titled to their share of the State ap
propriation because they are citizens
of South Carolina.
"It would have been better for the
first resolution adopted by the State
reunion, giving each soldier $10 as
long as it lasted to have .remained,
rather than the way In wlhoh you di
When it became known that enough
funds had not been provided for all
the veterans who were unable 10 pay
their expenses, The Columbia State
came forward and proceeded to ise a
fund by public subscription aiiu gen
erously started the list by a contribu
tion of $100. About $S00 had been
raised in this way when Gov. Blease
made an offer to den. Teague to go
on a note with him to supply enough
money to pay the railroad fare of all
soldiers not provided for out of the
$1.(100. trusting that the legislature
will make return of the money when
it meets. Tho latest reports stated
that den. Teague had agreed to the
suggestion of dov. Blease and that
the money would be provided
The following letter from \V. A.
Clarke, of Columbia, is expressive of
the other side of the controversy:
To the editor of The Stae:
'Enclosed you will find check for
$5, my contribution toward the fund
you are raising to aid in transporting
the needy Confederate veterans visit
ing C.ettysburg. Your suggestion is
a happy one, and the liberality of
your subscription should meet with
a quick response from others inter
ested in this reunion.
I regret to see that the ai a of
Gen. Teague In the distribution of
the fund apropriatcd by this State
has called forth some criticism, I
am of the opinion that Gen. Teague
has carried out the sentiment there
expressed. For him to have made a
longer division of the fund at his dls
I>osal would have given to each so
small an amount as would have de
feated the purpose for which the fund
was intended. His application of the
fund will prove to the best advantage
and I trust that your liberal and
timely effort will supply the defici
ency. W. A. (.'lurk.
Columbia, June 19.
Qon. Teague, besides Issuelng a
complete list of the old soldiers who
were provided with railroad fare out
of the fund of $1,000, has issued the
"The act of the legislature appro
priating the $1,000 reads: 'Expenses
to Gettysburg, reunion of Confeder
ate soldiers who participated in bat
tle foueht at that place. Money to be
expended under the direction of 13.
11. Teague, major general command
ing S. C. Division, United Confeder
ate veterans.' I voluntarily brought
the subject up before tho convention
of veteran;; at the Aiken reunion,
that 1 might be guided by the opinions
of comrades as to the disbursement
of this-fund. It was suggested by a
comrade that $15 be given to each ap
plicant, then by another $10 was sug
gested, then another thought that
it should be prorated by the amount
required for each applicant's rail
road fare. Finally, as no definite
amount was agreed upon, by resolu
tion, the whole matter was left in the
hands of the commander. This resolu
tion Is recorded in the minutes of
the convention 'to do as he thought
best with if now in possession of the
"For two weeks after the reunion
the applicants camo in slowly. In
this time I issued a circular letter to
my comrades, saying they must send
In their names by June 15. This was
done simply to hurry them up; noth
ing was said, or intended, that any
one would be debarred after that ]
"After much thought, 1 concluded
that it would be best to adopt the
last suggestion offered at the reunion,
especially since it looked as if there
would not be many applicants. I
did not know any more than the leg
islate re, how many there would be
and there was no means for finding
it out, 'so I began to send out checks,
In rotation, tho amount of each ap
plicant's railroad fare, as each appli
cation came in and continued this,
until the $1,000 was paid out.
"The number of checks was 64.
Since then, the number of applicants
lias run up to 200 or more in all.
Now, had I waited until the last day
possible, and dcK'ided thin 'money
equally among the over 200 who ap
plied, there would not have been $5
apiece?not enough to take one hardly
100 miles and back. Then suppose on
the other hand, that having been done,
an applicant had said that was not
the intent of the act?that it was In
tended that each one's way should
have been paid In full.' You see I
could not satisfy all. The trouble
has not been with your commander?
it has been with the legislature?it
did not instruct me definitely and did
not appropriate enough money to go
around. I have done my best for you,
comrades, giving my time, labor and
expenses in this unsolicited and both

pointed ones. I wish I had it within
my gift to pay the way to Gettysburg

would all be there. I have called on
tho people of the State to help you
and have listed your names and if
any money comes into my hands, I
will send a check to you as I have
