the stage and made an earnest appeal
for a respectful hearing for Mr. Grace.

a number of others called on the police i

BLEASE MAKES A TALK

Brookland, Aug. 3.?"I will beat Ira
B. Jones by 18,000 or 20,000 votes as
certain as God Almighty lets the 27th
of August come," declared Cole. L.
Blease, addressing an audience of possibly
800 people at the Lexington
county campaign meeting here today.
The meeting was composed largely of
mill people, many of whom were ladies.
The governor was escorted to
the stand by his admirers, and a bevy j
of girls carried a large bouquet of;
roses bearing the inscription, "Wei

Gov. Blease said at the outset that
it was a pleasure to get an opportunity
to speak to the people when he
could have an opportunity to discuss
the issues; that not a single issue had
been discussed during the State campaign;
that it had been a campaign
of "vituperation, abuse and slander;"
and that the people had not had the
opportunity to judge who was the \
best man for governor. He said that;
those "tfho had come to the meeting !
for the purpose of hearing him assail !
bis opponents would be disappointed; I
that he never spoke of his adversaries
behind their backs.
The governor declared that if "it j
had not been for the cotton mill boys
at Newberry that he would never have I
been elected to the legislature; that j
if it had not been for the cotton mill
Doys of Newberry hs would have never
been sent to the State senate; that if
it had not been for the^mill boys of
dewberry he would never have been j
elected mayor, and that if it had not j
)een for the mill boys he would nevp i
lave been elected governor of South j
He urged the mill people to turn j
-n election day and see that he j
eceived a fair count. He said that j
nstead of "counting him out," it was
i scheme of the opposition to send
in insufficient number of tickets to
;he strong Blease boxes so that the
Deople would be deprived of the right'

The governor received an ovation
when he sat down, and was carried
from the stand to his automobile on
the shoulders of his admirers.
It was a Blease crowd, it being esti- ;

JONES IS CHEERED
AT HEATH SPRING
Candidate for Governor Given Ovation.
Business Was Suspended.
Lancaster, Aug. &.?in response tu
an invitation from Heath Spring to
address a mass meeting of citizens of
that place today, Judge Ira B. JOnes,
though seriously handicapped by reason
of a bad throat, spoke enthusiastically
and with telling effect there this
afternoon to a great crowd of voters
besides several hundred cheering WOrn
on onrl r-hildrori
This was a gala day in Heath Spring, j
Business of every kind was temporarily
suspended in honor of South Caro- j
lina's distinguished candidate for gov- j
ernor and probably no public servant!
in Lancaster county has ever been ac- :
corded so great an ovation or been re- i
ceived with greater wormth of hospi- J
tality and feeling than was Judge
Jones today by the good and law abiding
citizens of Heath Sprins.
Banners were in evidence all over
town bearing the slogans: "Heath
Sprins: for Jones," "God save our
State," "Jones is the right man and we
will stand by him."
At the conclusion of Judge Jones'
address the stand upon which he
spoke was literally covered with floral
tributes to him of unusual beauty and
design, while the school girls and
women, with great gusto, sang several
Jones songs of their own composition,
and the men and boys gave many hurrahs
This was primarily a great Jones
day and be it said the crowd of 700
i people was easily a Jones crowd. If
j Blease's name was mentioned here today,
except by Judge Jones, who stated
to the audience that in the absence
of his adversary he would not criticise
his administration, this correspondent
did not hear it.

The ceremony itself was short and!

nomination, spoke from a platform j
raised a few feet above the floor of j
the East Room with the treasury and
the east terrace or tne wnne nouse ;
with its blooming scarlet geraniums j

of the assistant secretary of the navy,'
and Mrs. G. A. McClintock, the only i
women present, sat just below the 1
platform, while around tnem in a nair;
circle were grouped the members of
the committee, senators and congressmen
and other invited guests.
The affair was informal. Most of
the committee and congressmen appeared
in conventional dress, but former

yesterday he could attend in his "shirt

of the few to wear a frock coat.
Taft as a Waiter.
The president apparently enjoyed
the occasion immensely. After his
speech he disappeared in his private
apartments for a few minutes, returning
wearing a silk house coat instead
of his formal dress and acted as waiter
for Mrs. Taft and the other women
and mingled among the guests asked
to luncheon in the State dining room.
After the last visitor had departed,
he motored to Chevy Chase to play golf
