Blease not Elected (Natio
nal Convention Delegate.
OF WOODROW WILSON
The Grace and Blease Delegation*,
from Charleston and Georgetown
Respectively, Unseated In Conven
tion, Credentials Committee Voting
Almost Unanimously Against Them.
(From The State Thursday.)
The South Carolina Democratic con
vention, after a long and Interrupted
session, late last night adopted a reso
lution Indorsing the candidacy of Gov.
Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey for
president, elected vice presidents and
then turned to the election of dele
gates. The principal light on the
floor of the convention was on the
question of instructing delegates. Tho
sentiment of the convention was very
largely In favor of Gov. Wilson, as
evidenced In the vote on the resolution
of Indorsement, but the Wilson forces
were unable to muster a majority
when It came to a question of in
structing the delegates. Long end
warmly the contest was waged, with
speeches and points of order the am
munition, and with frequent bursts
of applause puncturing the delibera
Meeting at noon yesterday the con
vention organized by the appoint
ment of the credentials, with Mendel
L. Smith of Kershaw in the chair. The
credentials committee appointed, the
convention took a recess to allow the
committee to proceed with its work,
the most important feature of which
was the decision of the contests from
Charleston and Georgetown. In the
former case the Harnwell delegation,
proponents of J. El more Martin for
sheriff of Charleston county was
seated by a vote of :1G to 0. In the
Georgetown case the "court house
club" representing the forces of "old
Georgetown," was seated by a vote of
3G to 4.
The convention reconvened at S
o'clock and Thos. 01. McLeod, former
lieutenant governor, was elected per
manent president. M. M. Mann and
.lames A. Hoyt. temporary secretaries,
were made permanent officers.
The First ( lash.
Then, with tho convening of the
regular session of the convention
came the opening fight. The first
clash on instruction came on the floor,
it having been decided that the presl
dential light should be made in open
convention, without reference to com
mittees. John P. Thomas, acting for
the Rlchland delegation, precipitated
the light, offering a resolution In
structing for Woodrow Wilson. I). S.
Henderson for the Alken delegation
offered a resolution against instruc
tion for any candidate. This resolu
tion was finally adopted.
At 8:09 p. m.. M. L. Smith, tempo
rary president, called the convention
to order. J. E. McDonald, chairman
of the committee on credentials, re
ported that the committee almost
unanimously recommended that the
Harnwell delegation from Charleston
and the Hazard delegation 'from
Georgetown be seated. The report
was adopted by a vivo voce vote.
The election of a permanent pres

After a stormy session of six hours
the credentials committee recommend
ed that the Charleston delegation,
headed by Joseph \V. Harn well, be
seated. The vote was vfi to 0, four
members not voting and two vot
ing "neither". The Georgetown del
egation, represented by J, Walter
Hazard, was recommended as being
the legal delegation by a vote of 36
to 4. The report of the committee
was adopted last night by tho State
convention. lly the action of the
committee the contesting delegation
from Georgetown headed by Dr. Olln
Sawyer, and that from Charleston,
represented by Mayor John 1*. Grace,
were kept out of the convention. The
meeting of the credentials commit
tee was characterized by bitter per
sonalities. J. E. McDonald of Wlnns
boro, chairman of tho credentials com
mittee, conducted the examination of
The Georgetown Winners.
The following delegation was rec
ognized from Georgetown county: G.
A. Doyle, J. B. Steele, 1). J. Wilson, J.
A. Brulngton, E. O. Boatwright, M.
O. H. Swan of Charleston and O.
M. Mitchell of Georgetown were rec
ognized by the credentials committee
as members of the ?xccutlve commit
tee from the two counties. They will
be seated by the State executive com
mittee. The contesting committee
men were Dan L. Slnklcr of Charles
ton and J. Walter Doar of George
Mayor Grace was the spokesman
for the delegation trom Charleston
as opposed to the Harnwell delega
tion. He went to the accustomed
place for the attorneys, and began to
speak in commendation of his admin
istration. He sought to prove his
claims. He bagan with a talk about
the rule of the people, and then
branched off Into a bitter denuncia
tion of the press. Finally he Injected
the name of Senator B. R. Tltlman
Into his harague and tried to im
press the committee that the senior
senator was supporting his delegation.
Tho denunciation by Mayor Grace of
the Barnwell delegation and tho claim
to the support of Senator Tlllman
were brought to an abrupt end when
Rutledge Rivers, attorney represent
lng the Barnwell delegation, read a
letter from Senator Tlllman to J. El
more Martin, sheriff of Charleston
county. Indorsing the course of the
The letter, Bald Mr. Rivers, was
read only because of the use of the
name of Senator Tlllman.
Mr. Martin was adverse to the use
of the letter and declined to give it for
publication even In part except when
urged that It was part of the commit
tee's record. The letter follows:
"U. S. Senate.
"May 9, 1912.
"Mr. .1. Elmore Martin, Sheriff, Char
leston. S. C.
"My Dear Sheriff: I have your let
ter of May 7. I had one from George
Legare yesterday. Have read the ac
counts in the papers and from what
1 can gather It seems that your fac
tion is entirely in the right and the
other crowd is up to their old tricks
of 'rule or ruin.' The State conven
tion ought to make an example of all
such Democrats and I hope It will. I
would glory In being well enough to
come to the convention myself and
cnlling attention to some things In
Charleston's past history along these
lines, but I do not feel able to do this.
I will write some letters though and
help you all I can. Because I believe

In Charleston and turn down the

"I had rather he defeated in the
primary than prostitute myself l.y
lending assistance and countenancing
any such disgraceful doings.
"I think I will write out an inter
view on tho political situation in
South Carolina and give it to the
"B, R. Tlllman."
The next contest considered was
that from Georgetown county where
two conventions were held. J. Wal
ter Hazard represented the regular
convention and the Sawyer wing was
represented by C. E. Sawyer of Alken.
Mr. Sawyer in making his argument
reviewed the meetings of the two
clubs In the city of Georgetown and
tried to show that the Hazard men
did not att nd the meeting. The two
contesting delegations before the
committee were designated as the
"fire hall" and the "court house"
the hearing there was a sharp passage
of words between Mr. Sawyer and O.
M. Mitchell, the executive committee
man with reference to the hearing
before the credentials committee In
Georgetown. Mr. Sawyer in his argu
ment charged misrepresentation on
?he part of the press. Testimony was
1 presented to show that there wer.' Tu
delegates in the county convention'
'and the Hazard forces had 30 of the
delegates. The forces of Dr. Sawyer
I held a separate meeting because thoy
j did not believe that the vote was fair.;
The man contest was over the work
of .los. R. Johnson as a teller. The
coinmltte nskc l . any questions con
cerning the sheet which was pre
sented. It was contended that there
had been a mistake in counting the
ballots, yet the sheet of Mr. John
son showed that the Hazard forces
were in a majority in the. convention.

?yHE FORD factory is conceded by the most famous mechanical engineers to
be the most compact, concise and efficient automobile factory in the
world, being equipped with labor and time-saving machinery, designed by Mr.
Henry Ford specifically for the manufacture of Ford Model T Cars.
The Ford Motor Company devote all efforts to the building of ono model,

employees with their work) not possible where several models are being con

The Ford factory is running continuously twelvemonths a year. The
workmen are never bothered with the troublesome thought of being "laid
off" for a while. They know that their employment is secure as they are
efficient and industrious.
Still another fact lies in the symplicity of the design of Ford Model T. It
is a quicker car to build because there are few parts and nothing intricate. So
simple, that any ordinary individual understands it readily.
