BANKER DENOUNCES BLEASE.
Addresses Crowd After Regular Senatorial Meeting. Greenville, July 18.?The tension which has held the senatorial party ! all the way in the tour through the i Piedmont broke today and for a few i , moments at least converted the po- 1 litical camp into a surging,. struggling, howling mob. One innocent enough looking question was the i cause of the explosion, which has 1 been threatening several days. < When the governor was speaking, J. W. Norwood, president of the Nor- ] wood National bank, said to be the ! second wealthiest bank in the State, asked the chief executive: j "How about Dr. Mcintosh?" ( The governor's answer was: "When' ' I get to Columbia I expect to request i Dr. Mcintosh to take a seat on the < stand. Ill answer that question then and not behind his back as a coward ' like you." < f Calling the chief executive a i "damned liar," Mr. Norwood swept j aside the policemen standing beside < < the little swinging gates to the in- 1 closed stand and rushed toward the ] governor, fighting his way against other policemen and State detectives who sprang between them. It was j with difficulty that the infuriated < man was forced backward down the ten-foot steps, it requiring the com< bined efforts of half a dozen stalwart men to keep him from breaking through and getting to the governor, who remained standing in the far corner of the stand, where he was when he made the statement. K From all sides the audience closed in and Mr. Norwood was pressed back in a struggling mass equally determined to get into the melee. Nobody was badlyJjurt, though many of those in the mix up were struck with fists about the face and breast. Mr. Norwood had blows directed at him from all sides, but he was so active that none was effectively delivered. The question at issue today was: At the Abbeville meeting the governor devoted practically his entire time to , an explanation of his parole of R. A. Richey, who was convicted of assaulting his 13-year-old adopted daughter. When the convicted man had supposedly developed paralysis the governor appointed a medical commission, composed of the late Dr. A. B. Knowlton and Dr. James H. JVlClDtOSn, OI luiumuia, iu uiant examination. It was on the basis of , these medical reports, along with i 4 others, the governor said at Abbe- , ville, that he granted the parole. , Tlie governor there praised in un- . equivocal terms the professional and , manly characters of these physicians. ( Since last Tuesday Dr. Mcintosh has 1 been quoted in a signed statement saying that he believed that Richey , bad deigned paralysis and that he had ( so said to the governor in his report. , ? It was this that led to the disorder . today. , The governor spoke to a large crowd of mill operatives-at the Wood- , side cotton mills last night, and then . told his hearers that the meeting ; would be over today when he (the governor) had spoken. "The meeting will begin at 1 , o'clock," he said. "Senator Smith is the first speaker and will talk 45 min- ( utes. I will then speak for the same ( x length of time. After that the meet- 1 - ing will be over unless you care to ] stay and hear a lot of trash." The major-part of the governor's ; followers took the governor at his 1 word today and treked away when the governor had finished, the speak- < er having but little to say after Mr. Norwood had been taken from the stand, but the meeting was not over. Not only did Messrs. Jennings and ( Pollock speak and get enthusiastic j welcome too, but Mr. Norwood took the stand after these two had their say and flayed the governor without ( mincing words adding that ne was not talking in "confidence." "If what Dr. Mcintosh says is true" Mr. Norwood began, "then Blease is what we all know him to be ?a dirty, infamous liar." The speaKer explained that the Mcintosh family, when living in New - j berry, "wouldn't" enter the home of j the Blease family and that the Biease* family "couldn't" go into the home of the Mclntoshes. Mr. Norwood also recounted to the audience the governor's companions at the campaign meeting of two years ago. Then, the speaker said, the governor rode to the grounds with "the most notorious gambler in Greenville" on one side in the automobile and on the ( other a man who has been convicted half a dozen times for selling liquor, though the latter, the speaker said, was the superior of the governor. Th^f Greenville banker also asked the audience if thev knew of a gambler wh^) was not "tearing his shirt" for the' governor and Sheriff Rector, of - Greenville county; if they knew of a blind tiger who was not doing likewise for the two, or any turned out convicts who were not sweating blood for them. The speaker took a stab at John G. Richards, candidate for governor, whom he designated as "a prince of hypocrites." "I know i * BRYAN FOR WOMAN SUFFRAGF Makes Statement in Behalf of Vote for Women. Washington, July 16.?Secretar Bryan in a formal statement to-da came out for women suffrage. H declared he would ask no politics right for himself he was not willin to grant his wife, and announced h would support the proposed Stat constitutional amendment extendin the franchise to women to be vote Dn in Nebraska next November. Woman, Mr. Bryan said, ha proved herself equal to every re sponsibility imposed on her an would not fail society in this emei gency. Above all other argument for giving her the ballot he place 'the right of the mother to a voic in the moulding of the environmen pf her children." "The mother," the Secretary saic 'can justly claim the right to emplo every effective weapon for the pre tection of those whose interests sh guarantees, but the ballot will pu within her reach all the instrumental: Lies of government, including the pc lice power." Equal Rights Argument. ''As man and woman are co-ter mts of th'; earth," the Secretary saic 'and must work out their destin together, the presumption i^ on th side of equality for treatment in a: that pertains to their joint life an its opportunities. The burden c proof is on those who claim for on in advantage over the other in detei mining conditions under which hot shall live. Objections raised to wc man suffrage appear to me to b invalid, while the arguments advan< 2d in support of the proposition, i my judgment, are convincing. "The first objection I remember t have heard was that as waman car aot bear arms she should not hav i voice in deciding questions tha might lead to war, or in er acting lavs that might require a army to enforce. This argument i seldom offered now, for as civiliza tion advances laws are -obeyed be cause they are an ^expression of th public opinion. As we look bac over the past we may well wonde whether the peace movement woul aot have grown more rapidly had wc man been consulted before nostil ties began. Home Win Xot Suffer. "Second, some urge that woma suffrage life is already full of car and that admission of suffrage eithe would overburden her to turn her a1 tention away from home duties. Th answer made is that the exercises c the franchise might result in change of th aght and occupatio that would relieve the monotony c woman's work. Surely the horn will not suffer if the mother, 'th child's first teacher,' is able to ir telligently discuss with her famil art of successfully administering it. the science of government and th "Third, many well-meaning me and women affirm that suffrag would work a harm to woman b lessening the respect in which she i held. This argument would hav more weight had it not been emplo> ed against every proposition ac vanced in favor of the enlargemen of woman's sphere. The obj. "o once was raised to the higher t^ca tion of woman, but it no longer i heard. "These objections, however honesi ly advanced, have proven impoter to retard woman's progress. "And are not the second and thir objections refuted, to some extent a least, by the fact that in the State vvhich have adopted woman suffragi (and in the other nations that hav adopted it) there is no agitation fc a return to the system under whic man has a monopoly of a right t vote? Is it not fair to assume a effort would be made to correct th mistake if woman's suffrage reall had failed to give satisfaction to th people where it has been tried?" .The Haskell Convention. Governor Blease has accused Sen? tor Smith of having been a delegat to the Haskell Convention. The Sent tor emphatically denied the charge stating that he was passing throug Columbia the day the Conventio met on his way to see the lady wh afterwards became his wife. In lool ing over thee old files of the Peopl we found the following paragraph i the issue of October 16. 1S90, whic OfinntAr'c pnntor nuuiu ucai jui lug ucuawi o tion: "The roll (meaning the roll of deh gates) seems to have been arbitraril made up apd the names of all vis tors to Columbia placed upon it. Sei eral have repudiated any sympath with the movement, among thei .Messrs. R. C. .Moody and W. L. Mi Fail, credited to this county." Senator's Smith's word is as goo as the Governor's. The former ha denied the charge and the latter ha failed to prove it.?Barnwell Peoph him," he added. There were man urgent calls for the speaker to coi tinue when he sat down with a dea enmg roar of applause about him. 2. | ARGUMENTS IN FRANK CASE. s i Probably Several Weeks Before the Court Decides. v Atlanta, Ga., July 20.?Aiguments y in support of Leo M.
