Beaufort, July 9th.-Not un
interesting perhaps to the peo
ple who heard them were the
speeches delivered tonight in the
palmetto decorated court room
of Beaufort county by-, candi
dates for State offices. But the
meeting certainly wa "fiat,
stale and unprofitable" from the
news writer's viewpoint. Go -
Blease and J. R. Earle were ab
sent. B. B. Evans did not
speak and the attorney general
J Fraser -Lyon, did not mention
Mr. Evans except by indireetin,
when he said that two of his
opponents, Mr. Earle and Mr.
Peeples, were honorable men.
Other candidates spoke substan
tially as at previous meetings.
It was nearly midnight when
Ira B. Jones, candidate for
Governor. was introduced. It
was not expected that .Judge
Jones, in the absenee of Gov.
Blease. would say anythina
greatly different from what he
has before said.
A tvlegrat from Gov. Blease
said: "In Columbia attending
to official business."
Several of- the 0audidates
spoke brief'y today at noon at
an unofficial meeting held for
the'benefit of citizens from the
southwest secton of Beaufort
county. The special- trip ar
ranged for the Bluffton boat,
So steady became the down
pour when the candidates for
governor were reachEd on the
program that both Judge Jones
aud Governor Blease spoke with
umbrellas held over them, in
addition. Govetnor Blease wore
a rubber coat.
Neither of them varied much
from their usiual arguments.
Governor Blease digressed
enough to say that Washington
Clark, of Colutnbia, had placed
9 a bet with a f iend of the
governor's that Jones would
beat Blease.
-"If Mr. Clark," added the
* governor, "showed no* better
judgement in the Seminole
matter than that, no wonder
-Duncan is after him so.
The governor denounced as a
"Blackhearted -lie" 'the state

applause. The applause that
