As Election is NearJf-There Was Difference of Only 5,6C0 Votes Between Featherstone and governor Blease? Wow the First PriAary Went. Columbia.?With thl primary elec'tion leBS than a mon;?off and confident claims being madw>y the ardent supporters of the two mading candidates for governor, it isVf some interest to look back to thlkcampaign of 1910 and in the light of th^lection figures of two years ago forr^some Idea of the chances this year, g^dge j Jones is a new factor personall^NP A] the primary, but the strength of Gov. Blease and of the opposition to him ? Js pretty well known. Mr. Blease was elected in the second primary of 1910 by a majority of 6,645. A change of less than 2,900 votes would have defeated him. In i Charleston his majority was smaller than that, it was 2,745, and it was freely charged just after that election that at least 1,500 fraudulent votes were casf in Charleston county. In Richland the majority for Gov. i Blease was over 1,000, it was 1,026*. and a substantial change in these two , y counties would ordinarily be sufficient Ll to bring aljout the defeat of tM-pree- , w* /e^vveflfcrTTu^io Mr. BlJfloe had" Ja the second primary the support* of ' f practically all factions in Charleston ^ ;i? .as against a .prohibitionist, whereas this year the Grace faction, triumphant at the recent municipal election, \ Is opposed to him, and the anti-Grace faction is at least not for him, so far as any one knows. At any rate it Is certain he will never receive in Charleston the landslide vote he got two years ago. >In the second primary of 1910 Gov. Blease received a majority of the votes in 24 of the 43 counties, as follows: Abbeville, Aiken, Anderson. Bamberg, Barnwell, Berkeley, Calhoun, Charleston, Clarendon, Colleton, Dorchester, Georgetown, Hampton, Horry, Kershaw, Laurens, Lee, Lexington, Newberry, Orangeburg, Pickens, Richland. Saluda and Union. Of these eouDties which gave Blease a majority those giving him the largest majorities were the following: Aiken, 1,024: Charleston, 2,745; liorj rv, 441: Lexington, 024: Newberry, 629; Richland, 1,026; Saluda, GDI; Union, 490. In the other counties which lie carried his majorities were small. Gov. B1 ease's opponent, Mr. Featherstone, received a majority in the following counties: Beaufort, Cherokee. Chester, Chesterfield. Darlington, Dillon. Kdgeiieid. Fairfield, Florence, Greenville. Greenwood, Lancaster, Murioji, Marlboro, Oconee, Spartanburg, Sumter, Williamsburg, and York.
