LOSE FEDERAL AID
Wax Department Recommends Thej be
Mustered Out. Blease to Sate Them*
Columbia. November 22.?All Feder
al aid has been withdrawn from tho
military companies at Chesterfield,
Bennettsville, Barnwell, Conway and
Bamberg, and the war department r?>c
oinmends thai they be mustered oul of
tho National Guard of South Carolina
a:.d disbanded, according to o letter re
ceived by Governor Blease from Secre
tary of War Lindley M. Garrison. This
reoommoudatlou and withdrawal of all
Federal aid follows the rciuspection o;'
the thirteen companies found deficient
at the spring examinations.
Governor Blease will not muster out
ih* companies, but will put the whole
matter up to the coming session of tho
General Assembly, so ho stated this
?ting. The governor will call a con
ference of the ranking officers of the
Nationul Guard to lay tho matter he
fore them, and tili? conference will bo
participated In by Brig. Gen. Wilie
Jones, Col, W. W. Lewis, of the 1st reg
iment; Col. C. T. Lipscomb, of the 2nd
regiment; Col. Julius K. Cogswell, of
the 3d regiment: Assistant Adjt. Gen.
O. "W. Babb and the captains or officers
in charge of tho five companies recom
mended to ht? dismissed.
Improved Since Spring.
The companies at Liberty, two in Co
lumbia, Darlington. Llloree, Walter
boTO and Lancaster companies, are
found to have Improved since the
spring examination and will bo retain
ed, some changes and improvements
being suggested by Secretary Garri
The governor states that ho hopes
to get the five companies from which
Federal aid has been withdrawn to re
organize, and come up to the standard
required so that they can retain their
membership In the National Guard of
It was known some days ago that
Secretary Garrison had written a let
ter to Governor Blease on the South
Carolina militia, and on his return
from Jacksonville this morning, on be
ing asked about such a letter, said:
Yes: I found the letter here upon
my return from Jacksonville. The let
ter bears date November 10, but It
reached this office only on November
I am very much pleased with the
?outcome of the rciuspection. As a mat
ter of course, 1 would have been very
much. V ittor pleased If all the com
panies had been able to make good.
However, when I was requested loj
muster out thirteen companies it is
?voll remembered that I absolutely re
fused to do so and requested that ro
i;,.-pection. which now has been held
and completed, and as a result eight
Companies are saved. Five. I regret to
say. it seems will have to he mustered
out. But 1 presume I will be given a
? little credit for saving the remainder
of the companies. It Is much better
to lose only five than it would have
boon to lose thirteen, and had 1 done
as l was requested to d<> at flrsl these
thirteen companies would have been
mustered out and we would not have
been able to have saved those which
tho war department now recognizes as
Feels Well Repaid.
'1 regret very much that the com
panies at ?Chesterfield, Henncttsville,
Barnwell, Conway and Bamberg failed
to present themselves In such condi
tion as that they could.be retained.
However. I fool thoroughly well paid
Kir my light In having saved the com
panies at Liberty Hill, tho two Colum
bia companies and the Darlington. 131
>rco, Wnltorboro and Lancaster com
panies. It will be noticed, too, that
among the companies which I have
saved are the two very important com
panies of l311oree ami Wnltorboro. Of
course, the Others arc not less impor
tant fro 'mono standpoint, but condi
tions may arise which would make
these two very necessary to the pro
tection of the white people of their
"I do not care to give the letter out
In full as I th ik it would bo a mis
take just at this time. I shall, how
ever address a letter to the captain
ol each of these companies, stating
to him the conditions as reported by
tho war department, and asking him to
make one more attempt to get him
self and his company in shape, f shall
then make final report of the entire
matter to the legislature, after con
sultation with some military oftlcers,
and ask the Legislature to take what
? vor action is necessary and I hope, at
?he latest, by the first of March or
\prll; to have all these companies back
.n position to remain members of the
National Guard of South Carolina."
