From Joel H. Miller
Mr. Editor: If you will indulge th
i writer I shall endeavor to place a few
facts before the readers of your paper,
n a condensed form; facts that the pub
lic hasn't learned, as the pressbias beer
very limited in making known to th<
people. I am writing concerning th(
action of the State Democratic execu
tive committee that met after the Iasi
primary to hear the complaints fron
the different counties and to declare the
election of the primary. We learnet
that there were complaints of fraud, in,
timidation, coercion, etc. Now, Mr,
Editor, I have investigated the questior
along with many others from the vari
ous counties of the state. What did w(
learn to our surprise? That there weri
about fifteen hundred sworn complainti
that came before the state committec
to la investigated. What did they dol
This state executive committee waE
thought to be white democrats, dealing
with white democrats, so we as demo.
crats Could settle our differences among
ourselves, and keep ths negro outas fai
as the primary was concerned. Now,
we know the anti-Blease faction waE
greatly in the majority. I am fearfu
that a majority of this committce whicl
refused to hear these hundreds of sworr
complaints of various kinds will licai
the condemnation of all true and trie<
democrats of this state heaped upor
them for this inconsistency, treating
justice and right with contempt. Oh,
yes, in 1912 when Blease was countet
in over Jones, the complaint was "ther<
is fraud in the primary." Complaint:
came in and what did they do? Thi:
committee was anti-Blease then. Di<
Blease object to having the primary in
vestigrted? No, Blease told them t
investigate as much as they pleased
that he didn't want the nomination ii
it was tainted with fraud. That, Mr.
Editor, "spells" a true, honest, whit(
democrat. Now, Mr. Editor, as I have
seen many of these sworn statementE
of where men were threatened witi
foreclosure of mortgages of their homes
if they voted for Blease, many threats
of closing papers on their household
goods, turning them out into the street
or big road without anything except
their wearing apparel, others threaten
ed with suspension of their jobs, many
of their sworn statements had various
bills of money pinned to them that had
been given them to vote for R. I. Man
ning. Now, Mr. Editor, in conclusion I
want to say to every white voting citi
zen to obliterate all malice and hatred
that might have been caused by a one
sided press and see what we are coming
to, with the corporations and moneyed
interests swaying the masses of the
people, intimididatig, coercing, threat
enmng them with their money and infiu
ence, to do their bidding, not allowing
a hearing on the violating of the pri
mary election lawvs. They have bought
you like cattle and scared you like sheeP.
Now, like the slaves of old, we wvill pay
no attention to your grievances. That
has been the slogan of capitalists since
Abraham. (Gen. 14 clh.)
Now let us as true Americans, an
white South Carolina (democrats, place
the seal of our disfavor upon this state
committee ruling and its nominee at the
ballot box on November 7, and make
caution to future committees and nom.
