Charleston, July 5.? "1 want to put
a proposition to you, and you an
ewer it it the August primaries.
Whatever you do, 1 will be governor
anyway for September, October, No*
vember and December ftnd 21 days In
January, if you want government
by Injunction and a metropolitan po?
les force, you vote for Ira B, Jones,
and I'll give it to you " With this
audavious threat Gov. Bleaae closed
his huig- awaited address at the State
campaign meeting held hare tonight,
an address in Which he Intim tted that
the recent break between him and
Jno. P Grace, mayor of Charleston,
began when he refused to commission 1
as notary public a negro, S W. Ben- 1
nett, whom the mayor had recom
mended. He said further, with ref?
erence to charges voiced hy the may?
or that graft collected in Charleston
had been traced to the office of the
g vernor. "No gentleman would ln
ISinuate that i had ever received any
I ift and any man who says 1 did
1.- a malicious character thief and a
c vardly liar." The governor also
di dared his intention of standing by
1 njam'n 11. Stothart. chief of the
c nitabulary In Charleston, against
whom graft charges were recently
brought before u legislative investiga?
Mo;e than 1,200 persons, no wo?
men being Included, ware assembled
in Hibernian hall when the candi?
dates for governor were introduced.
These .-poke as usual. The meeting
opened at 5 o'clock In the afternoon
and continued until all of the candi?
dates in the party had been heard.
It was an attentive audience, but one
quick to express approval or dis?
approval. Quick also to laugh as
some of the speakers learned to their
discomfiture, when a point put for?
ward in ail seriousness tickled, for
some reason the risibilities of the
Tremendous demonstrations were
given In hoinu of both the leading
Icandidates for governor, hut it ^i>
peared that applause for Judge Jonei
came more generally from over the
house and men long acquainted with
Char!".-'on a?ulien<os <aid the ma?
jority opinion among those present
was in favor of Joneg as against
uiea.-e. Undeniably, however, the
j volume 'i sound was greater in the
Ipro-Blease outbreaks, as it usually i<.
I Hissing w,s more freely resorted to
here than elsewhere on the campaign,
[as an expression of disapproval and
! Gov. Bleage was the target of a good
'deal of It. Excellent order prevailed.
An extraordinary number of police
j men in uniform was distributed about
I the hall and these were prompt In
suppressing demonstrations which
they doomed improper. An admoni
Itory wave of the hand proved all
? ii .t was necessary In every case.
Judge- Joneg devoted some portion
of his time to a reply tu detail to
the speech delivered at Blshopvllle
by Gov. Bleaae.
The governor made his usual de?
claration regarding negro* i, lynching
and other matters, but g>?\' his atten?
tion principally to points of local in?
terest in Charleaton. Some of his
Imost Interesting statements were
I made In response to q*,?*stions from
"What about beer?" asked a voice
I in the audience.
"You bring mo glass of it up here
and i uan i;'ik ?haut it better," s.iui
? what about racing;?" was another
"Do as you did this year," retorted
Gov. Bleaae. "Act like men and do
a> you pleas, '' This question and its
answer related to the passuge by the
ast legislature of an act outlawing
metropolitan racing In South Caro
II, i from July I, 1912.
