"I DID IT."
According to Mayor Grace
Charleston Blease will not be!;
elected, but if he is eited e
says there will be an anti-leuse
legislature elected w,ic11 wi:
imneach him. and if the legISa
ture does not impeach Blese.

With Charleston's Mzayor it is a
case of IF. The amusin par t

that be "permitted things to be i
done to save the race track at,;
the last session which had thiey
not been done, unquestionably (
would have meant defea of that
project." Betsy and I kiled the I
bear: Mayor Grace. accoramfllZ to
our recollection, had very little
to do with the race trackl legis
lation, if anything at all. He ib
came quite intimate with a Rep
resentative from Chestertield by i
the name of Stevenson and in
duced that gentleman to pro:ent
the Commission government Act
from being brought up to be
passed over the Governor's veto.
in this, he was tighting to save
himself from being legislated
out of the Mayor's oftice, and,
it is believed by many that he
made a compact with Mr. Stei2
venson to deliver the vote of
Charleston to Jones as payment
for saving his political hide.
But so far as Grace doing
anything for the race track is
concerned, it surely is news to
those who d-d do a great deal to
prevent the Senate from repud
iating a solemn agreement it
had made when it granted to the
racing association a charter for
its establishment. Grace had
nothing to do with this legisla
tion, nor did he exert one parti
cle of influence upon those who
stood by Charleston in-this fight.
The House where Mr. Grace's
friend was a floor leader, and
successfully led the majority
against any and everything
Biease favored. passed the ann
racing bill with all of its drastic
features practically unanimously 4
but when it got to the Seuate,
those who made a stub!orn tight
against it, did not reur gniz- Mr.
Grace as being activelv interi
ested. He had his own fish to
fry-the race track or ainything
else was a secondary cons idera
tion with him. Therefore, so
far as permitting things to '>e
done to save the race track at
the last session is concernied. Mr.
Grace should go off and tell this
yarn to the marines, common
sailors will not believe it. Maj.
Dan Sinkler. exerted more in
fluence in the race track propo
sition than any half dozen other
individuals, but the real influence
which had more weight upon the
senators was the fact that the
general assembly had granted a
charter to the racing association
to do a racing business. and be
fore the business was gotten
under tay. and after many
thousands of dollars had been
spent upon the plant, it was at
tempted to practically confiscate
the property of the investors
who bad the State's permission
to establish the business: it was
this which caused a number of I
senators to stand to the charter
granted by the legislature, and
absolutely nothing the senators4
had knowledge of that Grace
permitted.I
Grace says he has the informa
tion straight that Blease will be
defeated, if he has this "inform
ation straight" something no
man can possibly know. why
does he say Blease will not be
elected with a But attached to
it, and there will be an .anti
Blease legislature which will
impeach him, attaching a But to
this too. If he is so sure, why
does he not make a positive as
sertion, so those who are sport
ingly inclined, and we hear Char
lestod has a few such citizens.
can make a proposition to him to
put up or shut up. It is reported
that there is a lot of money in
several cities mn the State await
ing these gentlemen who are wil
ling to back their judgment that
Blease will be defeated.
Grace is not the only one who
gets information relating to the
gubernatorial contest, we have
inte.rested ourself somewhat and
our information is that Blease
will win this contest by a larger
majority than he rei-eived two
years ago, this information
comes from sources that ard
competent to judge. and are not
actuated by personal feeling.
some of .the information givent
us comes from men w-ho a~re not
supporters of the Gover nor, out
they are close observers and
try to give an honest estimate,~.
of course, their- estima'tes are
largely guess work after tra vel
ing in the various sections of the~
State. The estimate lin hr
leston is that on account of the
Grace defection the vote in that
city will be close, not because
Grace permits it to be so. 'out
because Gr-ace will not be able
to help himself with the machini
ery out of his hands, which no
doubt he will realize later on.

c rrviig out the compact which
the .ollimunitv Club got it where
tie squaw got the beads.
Girace is no better man now
than .be Was before he becaeii a
caIndidate for Mayvor, ini fact. if
there is any change it is for the
worse, because. he has gone back
upon tie very element which
pulled ihm up to where he is, and
is caftusig thlm more uneasiness
than those they opposed all put
together. Grace could not have
been elected without the support
1 tie Sotilles, the Chiceos. the
Carrolls, the Hasseievers. and
the others said to be in the illicit
lquor tralii, and yet. because he
has a falling out with the Gover
nor and is an implacable enemy
of Sherill Martin, to gratify his
hlitred he endeavors to throw
confusion into his own ranks
without regard to the cost to
those he owes his political exis
tence to. He does not come
square out and charge Sheriff
Marhtin with getting graft., but
;le does say that Martin in not
rel oving a rnd poleman by
&icalid I he s1m thing Blas has~
dotn in t Stth.r" s. There\:
fore according t Graet the 11
iielit an appont-eeisa:cus9d of
er m1u. tIr the man. That being
all whtiebI is~ neessary to) socure
a discharge it is easily seen how
Mr. Girace's personal mnalice
would easily be gratitied: all that
he w\old have to do to have an
ofic remfoved is to make an ae
casaio. and the man that 01)
nosed him wn~ould lose his job:
such scheme might do well for
the interests of a certain class of
pol itcians. but in this American
prmsn the protection of theO
law to its l.umblest citizen, it
willi not do at all: under such
a. sste no man. however hon
est and faithful inl the discharge
of his duie is, would be safe from
the maichine polijtician. were such
a doctrine as Mr. Grace advane
es to become the rule. viz: that
whien"ever an otlicer is accnsed
he mnust be removed, the vwhole
atnointive systera would be in
jeopardr.
Grace accuses a rural police
man of wrong-doing and because
Sheriif Martin does not remove
tile mran thlen Martin is equally
guilty of the al1eged grafting. If
the charg Mr. Grace make1~s
against this policeman appointed
bu Sheriff M\artin hlas a sem
'blance of foundation, why does
not Girace have the man arrest
ed? Is lhe afraid that he cannot
satisfy a Charleston jury of the
trt h of the charges? Is Mr.
(Grace aftraid to unldertake to es
tablish his accusation of wrong
d coing by witnesses that a Charles
ton jury would believe on oath?
However, lhe is making a great
effort to conymnce a certain ele
mnent that lie will Carry-Nation ize
Charlestont, even though in this
show of elfort he exposes the
frends who nlaeed their trust in
him. and are now being handed

NONE SO BLIND AS WILL NOT SEE
Editor Ayer of the Florence
Times. is so steeped in prejudice
that he is incapable of being just
to those who do not view things
as lie does. In the last issue of
The Manning Timesz we took oc
c:a0ion to say that Ayer evinced
impatiefnce because the Gover
nor did not reply at Columbia to
the charges a:inst him at the'
A ugusta conclave, as had been
announced by lim. Aver claiis
that he advised his readers "to
su tight ana wait, that the gov
ernor's long_ suit was in answer
inc." Our recollection is that at
s:Y'ne meetinc Governor Blease
a'ImOup nced th!at he would speak
froml the Stata lons- steps on
.b ,1a- nIigh!t. : d at that meet
inhe wo d ans:er the charies
r-ouht out at August:i ti ans
wer was not made that night as
was exnected, and the next day
the Florence Times made capital
of it, hen':e we said our friend
was impatient, but at Chester,
which was the day'following the
C o l u:n b i a meetin. Governor
Blease made good his promise
by answering- fully the charges
d(iamned from the Burns scaven
zer cart into Augusta. But there
has been no attempt on the part
of Editor Aver to refute the an
swer made at Chester. The Gov
ernor did not make the promised
answer at Columbia, but we sup
pose he had to have a little time
to prepare it, and notsithstand
ing what frieud Aver mefy think
of Evans, Farnun and Dominick
there were other affidavits to.
disprove the allegations made
by the Burns detective agency;
editor Ayer lost sight of the
Childs affidavit, the Wright st att>
ment, and he also lost sight of
the fact that the affidavits of
Evans, Farnum and Dominick,
together with the Childs and
otlier affidavits, were made long
before Blease was Governor, and
in answer to the charges made
when he was a ca'hdidate against
Anse!, they are not of recent
gatiering but a refutation of tire
same charges which were used
for political purpose before. Edi
tor Ayer asks: "Who is to bene
fit or lies on Blease?" We an
swer, the same crew that fought
him throughout his administra
tion is to benetit. The people are
on to the animous, they know
full well that the action of the
Governor in reference to the
great mill - mierger brought upon
hia n enmit fromn tI e le:ids of
the "B:s: Int-'eets." -His agita
h ot made the railroad
'inrests feel kindly tmvard him.
d too, the element that were
agitating the matter of impeaich
1 in E Blease is sore because when
th'e time came for action they be
came afflicted with cold feet; if
we remember correctly Editor
Aver was onie of these agitators.
Men do not conspire without a
nurapose" says Fr-iend Ayer, this
is true. Thie purpose of the op
postion is s0 palpableC that it
wou'ld be pre-sumpt:On on our
part to go into dletails. as the
u.s uniformed voter knows
the. purpsa . Yes Brother Ayer,
it is Blease's long suit to answer.
n d lie has answered Burns
Felder and Company to a stand
silI. If Brother Ayer will readi
Ithe- Federalist on pages 537 8 and
Isee what Attorney General Wick
ersham in an official report to the
preidenit of the Uniited States
ad about this same Burns we
think, even though hie is preju
di~edaist the Gov-ernor, he
wil a lesthave a poor opinion
0f Burns and his methods, unless
he comes to the conclusion that
Wickersbami and President Taft
are in league with Blease.
No Friend Ayer, as long as we
believe that an unscrupulous
enemy is persecuting a man who
is a thorn in their flesh, we will
be found on the side of the op
pressed. If the enemy has proof.
why in the name of justicc doe-s
it not bring it forward. and not
keep promising to do so merely
to shake contidence. In our hum
ble opinion the methods e~ml~oy
ed has shaken confidence more
agast the enemy than Blease.
Congress is about to be a joy
to the housekeepers by taking
some of the tariff off of sugar.
and the bill to give to the States
the right to regulate liquoi
shipped from other States has
had a favorable report in the
Senate, therefore with cheaper

shipment there will be good
cause for rejoicing among those
who take sugar in theirn.

WICKERSH~AM EXPOSES BURNS. s
We have received a copy of ~
Trhbe Federalist published i n hi
Washington which contains a ie
port of Attorney General Wick C
ershamn to President Traft in the :
Jones pardonease. Jones was con
Iicted in one of the fraudulent t
land cases, and the report of the ~
Attorney General shows a horri
ble state of affairs mi the way of
the Burns detective agency in col
lusion with otlicers r-ailroaded'
Jones to a conviction by a espees
ially packecd jury. Trhis reportI
shows that Burns himself was a
party to the jury tix up, that he
interviewed those who were to
be drawn on the jury and r-eport
ed to the officers who should an~dJ
who should not be put tu the jury
box. Upon this report the~ Pres,
idedt of the United States in
mediately granted the pardon,
and the magazine edJitoraiy says
the Pr-esident in his rearsons uses 1
very scathing language towards0
Detective Burns. We would re
pouce tis report but there i
language in it as copied from thle
record that we cannot atford to

it is very lengthy. A reading of
