Calls Thurnond's Letter a "Tirade"
and Says He is in Absolute 1h'rror.
Sorry Thurmond Told of Dining
Washington, Aug. 11.-Senator Dial
of South Carolina today made public
the following reply to a newspaper
statement given the South Carolina
newspapers a day or two ago by for
mor District Attorney 'J. William
Thurmond, of Edgefield, which is self
"I have just read In yesterdays
press a tirade of Mr. J. William Thur
mond against me. In many of Mr.
Thurniond's statements 1he is abso
lutely. in error. I do not suppose the
public Is very much Interested in this
subject, but I will reitqrate its history
briefly, as he has mentioned it.
"In 1912 and 1918 several of us were
candidates for the Senate. Mr. Thur
mond was manager of Senator Till
.man's campaign both times and or
ganized the State against me. When
the W9stern District of 1outli Caro
lina was established, lie ,was appoint
ed district attorney by Senator Till
man, whi'h was perfectly natural.
After Senator Tillman's death in 19418
I was told that Mr.' Thurmond was
speaking good words in my behalf.'
"I am sorry Mr. Thurmitond sPeaks
of my dining with himi11, for it forces
ie to mention the subject. While at
the campaign meeting 'in Aiken, Mt.
ThIul rmond phoned me to come to
Edgefileld ani spend the night with
him. For this I thanked him, but
Politely declined. After speai.ng at
Edgefield, 'Mr. Thu'miiioid invited
oenaltor Pollock and me to dine with
him, w.;hich we accepted. Tile public

finally declined. Mr. Cochran was con
firmed, aq I knew him to be a gentle
man of !high character and ability. The
correspondence on the subject is too
long to print, but these letters are
dated respectively, July 18 and 20.
"It seems that Mr. Thurmond Is
very much outraged because I pre
ferred to appoint one of the ablest
lawyers in th southern state in
preference to one who had organized
the state twice against me. So -far as
his statement Is concerned t-hat my
objection. to him was because he
%oted for Senator Tiliman, this is sim
ply silly. As a .matter of fact, the
!ist appointment I made after I was
elected was a young man who told
me he had been a follower of Senator
Tillman. Since .I have been in the
senate, I have never asked or 'inquired
how anyone voted, but, of course,
I have always endeavored to aid my
personal friends and su piporters first."
