Columbia, 'larch 6.-rhe attentioi
of Governor Manning was called to at
editorial in a recent issue of the Ab

curred: "Some week 'ago a negr(

that Solicitor hinter will have the
matter thoroughly looked Into.
A complaint reached the Governor
from Damberg-county that one Jeff .1.
Hughes, <who was convicted in 1906 o!
wife beating, aind seitenced to the
peinientiary, and who was paroled by
Governor Ansel on tile con(litiOl that
if lie ever be.Convicted of beating his

the remainder of his sentence, was

proplll)tly looked into the matter and
fouind that the onIly condition of file

It might be wb'll to note that the comn
plant against Hughes was not made
by his wife.
IEvery conmplaint of illicit 'whiskey
selling is given instaiit attention by
the governor and lie has wreitten a
special letter to every sheriff to stamp
out the "blind tigers". One complaint

Sheriff Ackerman, of Colleton county,
in which the 'sheiIff reported his ac
tivity in suppressing "blind tigers" the
governor said: "I hope that you will
soon have this traffic broken Ii)."
Several sh'eriffs have made reports
every few days as to the results of
their efforts to suppress 'illicit whiskey
dealing. In a letter to Shtielif Thomas
of Cherokee couity, the governor said
"Keep up your work; the very fact
that th-. sheriff is alive and active will
help scare out the illibit dealers."
Now that tlie matter at Fair Play, in
Oconeo county, has been ended it can
be stated that that situabion gave tle
governor hours of serious considera
tion and lie did all lie could in the
matter, and his efforts resulted in se
curing a great deal of the evlidence
that was presented at the trial. Of
course the' governor has nothing to do
with- the verdigt of the jury nor is le
criticising that verdict, but he did his
duty by using all the machinery at his
command to gc't at the facts and the
evidence, and to bring the guilty par
ties to justice.
Replying to a letter from Mayor 1H
L. Spears, of TAndrum, regarding the
blind tiger situiationi in h141s town, -the
governor said: "I aim of course, very
desirouis of helping you wipe this
illegal traflic out, but at the same time
I am very much opposed to hiring
detectives for t'his work unless it is
proven beyond the shadow of a doubt
that the local oflicers cannot or will
not. enforce the law.'
Proper efforts on the part of the lo
cal authorities to e)force the laws is
Insisted on by Governor Manning, and
lie will assist, them in every way pos
sible, and with every agency at his
hands. Ile would'rather, much rather,
that the local ofilcers enforce the laws
and lie is dqing everything lie can tc
get them to do so, but it Is his inten'
tion if thle local ofllicers will not do
their duty- to take such steps as lie
may deem proper to see that the laws
ar properly enforced.
TPhe governor is devoting much at
teintion to the sittiation in .Columh
and Charleston. As to the latter city
the illness of Mayor Grace necessi
tated a delay in the governor's further
plans, for -he is waiting until .the mayor
can recover from an operation for ap
