Secretary Garrison's Demand for a
"Proper Communication" not Met
Columbia, 8. C, July 10.?That the
encampment of the throe regiments
^'f the Natonal Guard will <b? hold on
Alme and that the federal government
will not withdraw Its appropriation
of approximately $70,000 for the main
tenance of tho ?t?te militia, now seems
probable by roason of a telegram from
Governor Blease addressed to L. M.
Garrison, secretary of war, Thursday
morning in answer to a lottor from
tho lattor received by the chief nx
ecutlvc tho same date, is the opinion
of the military authorities in Columbia.
In substanco, the governor assures
tho secrotary of war thut he can be as
sured of his "co-operation und assis
tance in bringing about a compliance
on tho part of tho National Guard of
this state with the provisions of the
military law as enacted by congress,"
which was one of the specifications as
set forth In the secretary's letter.
Tho governor's telegram asked the
secretary of war to wire orders for
on encampment to begin on July 17,
one week from Thursday.
Tho lottor of Secretary Garrison,
dated in Washington, JulyS, is in an
swer to a comunlcation from Gov
ernor Blease under date of July 5. Tho
commun cation says that federal as
sistance will immediately be resumed
when Govornor Wense resumes proper
relations with the department; that
what in meant by this is that the sec
retary can count upon the governor's
cooperation and assistance in bringing
about a compliance on the part of the
National Guard with the military law
as enacted by the congress.
The action of the governor Thurs
day morning may end what has been
a Bource of vexation and worry to the
military men of the state for the past
few weeks. The whole controversy,
which at times became acrimonious,
hinged on tho refusal of Governor
Blcaso to withdraw 11 companies of
the National Guard from the service
on the request of the war department,
because of the alleged neglect or these
companion to comply with the provi
sions of tho military code. Governor
Blease took the position that, if the
men of tho alleged improperly con
ducted companies were given another
chanco, they could "make good."
When nsked Thursday afternoon If,
in his opinon, tho war department
would resume federal assistance to
the state National Guard as the re
sult of Governor Blcase's telegram,
W. W. Moore, adjutant general of the
state, replied that ho thotnrht so: that,
in his opinion, the telegram had an
swered the specifications contained in
Secretary Garrison's letter.
Tho telegram of Governor Blease to
Secretary Garrison Thursday follows:
