but still the cat stuck. The chairman
of the public works committee and
some of his subordinates were called
to the scene, but they were also un?
successful In devising means of mov?
ing the carcass. It was decided not
to tear up the sidewalk and the
health officer poured a quantity of
disinfectants and deodorizers in the
hole to remedy present evils, but still
the cat stayed there. It was suggest?

Mr. Wilder had his books posted up

levy week before last and after wait?
ing several days for the Comptroller
to* notify him of what the levy would
be and not hearing anything, he went
to Columbia to find out at first hands.
He is now engaged in putting the
taxes on the property already down

Should Hang Our Heads in Shame.
We were very forcibly Impressed
with almost the same remarks that
two of our good intelligent friends
from the country said to us since the
campaign day here. The sum and
substance of both their remarks was.
that they had made up their minds
before coming out to hear the speak?
ers that they would vote for Jones,
but after hearing the charges made
by Blease against Jones, they decided
that Blease was the better of the two,
and inasmuch as they had voted for
Blease two years ago, they would
stick to their tirst love and vote for
him again. They both acknowledged
that Blease's administration was a
disappointment to them and a fail?
Both of these men have boys and
It will be but a few years, when these
boys will be men and will have taken
their fathers' places. How will it
strike those boys when they read the
history of South Carolina and the
records of her public men and call
to mind that their fathers upheld
and voted to keep In the high office
once held by the peerless Hampton.
Hagood and others, a man accused of
taking graft, or being taken to his
very door and yet made no effort to
bring his accusers to justice, but
simply sneered at his accusers. Yes,
this very pertinent question will be
asked by them as it is being asked
today?If Blease is not guilty of re?
ceiving graft, why does he not de
| mand of his accusers to bring the
I proof? And since Mayor Grace has
j proven what he has charged, why
j does not Governor Blease force Stot
, hart to tell what he has done with
I that graft money, a part of which he
I has acknowledged receiving, before
the dispensary investigating commit

ing that he had received a part of
this graft money, it has been proven
by several blind tigers that they did
pay this money to Stothart and oth?
ers as protection from raids by the
It is truly a sad state of affairs that
the Executive of the proud State of
South Carolina is under the ban of
suspicion, that he has appointed men
to office whose sworn duty is to sup?
press the liquor tratic, but whose sole
aim and purpose is to extract money
from the illicit liquor dealers, divide
j with the Governor and appropriate
the balance to themselves. Yet this
is the man, Blease, that so many of
our good, honest, tolling men are up?
holding for governor.
We asked three ardent Bleasits to
I tell us candidly one good reason for
supporting Blease. The answer given
, separately was, "he is smart and
sticks to his friends." We also asked
j if they had any confidence in us, they
' all answered yes, Well then, we said,
