. Former Governor Declares He is In
Race to iServe State?Attacks
tlie Administration*
Lexington, May 21.?Cole. L. lUease,
ex-go. en. or and candidate for gov^
ernor in the coming campaign, addressed
a large gathering at R:kard'?:
new flour mill, e.t miles from the
county seat, yesieruay. me iuhuci
governor was applauded frequently.
Mr. Blease declared that lie wa?
not running for governor now because
he wanted the job, but he was
running because he was representing
the great band of "reformers" which
was organized in 1890, a-id because,
at a conference of the followers of
this movement held in Columbia, at
which there were 262 represnetative
South Carolinians present, he was
called upon again to lead the fight for
the people. He said t^iat he had endeavored
then, as he had endeavored
before, to get another to take up the !
cause; hut to this fhey would not j
accede and he was now running because
be felt that he could be of
service to his people not to himself.
Mr. Blease declared that no living
man knew the reasons which moved
him to resign as governor four days
, before his term expired, but one of
them was to give the Baptists of
South Carolina an opportunity to have
it said that one of their best and
greatest men, the late C. A. Smith of
Timmonsville, had been governor,
law and Order.
Mr. Bleace charged that more white
women had been assaulted by ne-!
groes since he left the governor's
office than in ten years before; 14
more white men have been killed by
negroes in South Carolina since- he
gave up the governorship than before,
and yet, he said, people talk about
law enforcement and accuse the
Blease administration of lawlessness.
All this crime is not being perpetrated
by "Bleaseite convicts" either; for,
-f he said, only two out of the enormous
number of 1,575 that received pardons
? or paroles from him had since gone
wrong, according to the best infor
motion obtainable. * The speaker

I ago he was asked by a man. if he
j ,'ouid turn out the convicts as he
! did before if iia were again elected,
he replied that he would not, because
they were not in the penitentiary and j
on the -chaingangs to turn cut?he ;
Lad cleaned things out during his j
four years in the governor's office,
he said.
Six convicts had received pardons
or paroles from the present governor j
on Friday, he said, and, according to j
the reports tney were paraonea a: j
the suggestion of the pardon board, j
to whom strong petitions had been j
i made; but during his administration)
he had no need for a pardon board, j
he went down to the penitentiary and
opened the gates. The law then, as
now, provided for a pardon board and
"he gave these positions to his friends,
j but acted purely on his own initiative,
j he declared, saying further that he
j was governor, "and even my bitterest
I enemies won't deny that fact.''
Mr. Blease said that the present,
governor is not the governor of the
people, but the "acting governor conj
troled by corporate interests and born i
i with a silver spoon in their mouths.'' j
Plea for Education.
I The speaker made a strong appeal i
for education, asserting that the hope j
of the country depends upon the edu- j
! cation of the bovs and girls. He
; scored the legislature for what he
termed extravagance in its appropriations
to Clemson, Winthrop, and
other higher institutions, and for alleged
inequality in the distribution of
public funds to the rural schools. Nobody
on earth knows and .nobody will
ever know, he said, how much money
Clemson college gets. He said that
the average country boy and girl
could never reach. the point where
they can enter these colleges and that
the free scholarships are handed out
to the rich?to those who are amply
able to pay for their children's schooling.
Mr. Blease said that when he turned
Dr. Babcock out of the asylum his
opponents declared that no other man
could fill his place; that the insane
had been treated unfairly and the
asylum itself ruined, but as soon as

; He said that the present superintend,
ent of the asylum lives in a house in
; the city of Columbia and practices
| medicine every day "and they told you
: that Dr. Babcock was the only qualified
mia for the place." Tiie speaker
said tint there was no stronger
Bleaseite in South Carolina today
than- 'Dr. J. W. Babcock.
Attacks tlic Legislature.
The legislature was scored, for
creating new offices, among them the
State board of charities and corrections.
"If a::y man can show me
where this office lias done a dollar's
worth of good 111 vote for that man
for governor," he said. He charged
that the secretary of the board receives
more than the governor of the
State, adding the amount for expenses.
The former governor charged that
there are -two men in the State ho'ld
ing commissions undec the present
governor as constables who have
never made a raid in their lives. One
of these, he said, works in- a cotton
mill and receives S3 a day for being
constable?all to build up a political
He declared that lie would not at-'
tack any man's personal character j
during the campaign, but he would
take care of himself in the event his
own was attacked.
The head of the State convention, j
Mr. Blease said, was one of the lead- j
ing corporation lawyers in the upcountry,
being attorney for the Western
Union Telegraph company. The
Blease people offered the convention j
a farmer instead, but he was "turned j
down" for a corporation man. He
said that the reason he suggested
Gov. Manning as a member of the
"big four" to the national Democratic
convention w?s because he respected
the governor's ofiice, not because he
has one grain of respect for [Richard
I. Manning.
He hooted at the idea of saying
that factionalism was dead, charging
that the present administration car-'
ried everything its own way by the

Mr. Blease, said that he was glad

In conclusion, the former governor
said that it was a disgrace to the !
State to hear people going around
talking about "Bleaseism" ar.d "Manningism;"
that there is no such thing
in existence, and it has no place i i
South Carolina. "I'll- ask no man for
a vote, I am honest' about that," he
said. "My only desire is to show the
people of my State what is going on;
T care nothing about your votes. The ,
whole matter hinges itself on one
question: Are you for the people or
are you for the corporations?the
moneyed interests?"
At the conclusion of he former
governor's speech, Claude X. Sa;ip, assistant
"attorney general, delivered a
strong address. He came as a representative
of the attorney general's office,
in the absence of Mr. Peeples.
who' was detained at his office on account
of important business matters,
it was announced.
The meeting was presided over by
George Bell Timmerman, who was introduced
to the audience by Senator
Sharpe, who said that he was not I
strong enough to sta:i;d the strain. Solicitor
Timmerman introduced the
other speakers, but before doing so,
made a brief address, announcing his
owa candidacy for reelection to the
office of solicitor of the Eleventh circuit.

years. He renewed the promise be'

Col. E. J. Watson, commissioner of
agriculture, who had accepted an invitation
to make an address, could
not be present. Col. tWfatson sent a
note of regrets by T. P. Huffman, in
which he said that his throat was in j
such condition that he could not
speak above a whisper.
