HON. COLE L. BLEASE INTERVIEWED
He Has Made no Deal or Promise to Sup
port Any Candidate, But Is Still True
to the Reform Movement.
) By request of a number of Reformers
a committee consisting of Messrs John
T. Duncan and John W. Earheardt,
i called upon Representative Cole L.
Blease, and asked him the following
r questions, based upon certain reports
, in circulation throughout this county,
, which he answered willingly as shown
Q. Did you go to Greenville to ask
Perry to see Butler for you?
A. No, I went on legal business to I
see Solicitor Ansel, did not see Perry.
Q. Did Butler's secretary while in
Newberry see and converse with you?
A. He did, but not in reference to
the postoffice. He came here to see
School Commissioner Keitt on book
Q. Did you promise your support
Q. Did Butler promise you his sup
port for the position of postmaster?
f A. No.
Q. Did you write Butler a letter,
y and upon mailing the same say, "this
will make no postmaster in six
r A. Did not.
Q. Have you said you believed
. Mower would be elected?
Q. Are you working for Mower?
A. No, not working for either for
reasons which I need not make public.
It seems that certain persons are cir
culating reports over the county that
Mr. Blease has deseAted the Reform
party and it was to get a statement
direct from him that this interview
was had. It seems to us that a proper
j way to have done would have been to
find out whether or not the report was
true before circulating It. But people
who desire to use rumors to do imjury
with cae very little whether they be
true or not. It is none of our fight,
however, and we only publish the inter
view as a matter of news, and as justice
- to Mr. Blease. It speaks for itself. He
- is still a true blue Reformer and says
b he is standing by the reform move
