REAL OR, STAGE VILLIAN?
The Governor and the Spartan
burtf Journal Exchange
Governor Coleman Livings!01
Blease and Editor Charles II lien
ry. ot' tho Spartanburg Journal,
have exchanged seine greetings
Ou ring inc past week which, ir,an
their tone, appear anything but
friendly. In inet, the governor
seems to dare tho editor tc como
to his face and say some of the
mean things he is charged with
having pi intcd. And the trouble
seems to have started over the
word "villain," hoard sometimes
00 the stage and sometimes in real
The Journal of same days ago
contained tho following editorial
"There is line material in South
Carolina polities just now for u
comic ojicra with Colo Blease as
the vi I lian."
Whereupon Governor Blease
wrote Editor Henry thc following
"State of South Carolina,
"Columbia, October 10, 1911.
**To thc Editor of tho Journal:

dull-wilted enough to think a sug

There aro, perhaps, people who
think Mr Blease a villian, or worse,
but we have seen no newspaper
that has ?tated its opinion of him
to this effect. Certainly thc Jour
nal has not done so.
"We shall have to ask his ex
cellent Excellency to accept our
regrets to his invitation to mcec
him at the Argyle hotel, in this
city or elsewhere. Wc would not
intrude our unappreciative pres
ence or attempt to interrupt for a
moment the continuous perfor
mance he gives whether he goes ol
his favorite burlesque, which
might bo entitled, "Governing a
(?rent State,' but which he renders
with a seriousness and an impor
tance that produces an unconscious
sal li e.
"Wo are little concerned about
Mr Blease or his acts or his talk,
but when a mau as ridiculous, a>
comic:-.!, us grolcsipic, as comical,
as grotesque, as droll, as absurdly
vain as he is, gets into thc limo
light, he is sure to furnish bet lei
material for newspaper pai agraphs
than for serious denunciation,
mindi as lio would prefer tho hit
ter st,\ le of treatment.."
Ann tho Journal docs not lot up
with this aloin ; it asked the gov
ernor why he pardoned two men
w ho were convicted i i Spartan
burg"'comity for false representa
lions in tho peddling of eyeglasses.
