Columbia, June 18. Coincident
with the testimony cd Muyor Grace, o?
Charlestoni .1 colonel on the Gover
nor's staff, about the charge! of graft
having bei n traced tt, ihe Governor's
office, came tin announcement of the*
resignation of Col. V. It. Cheshire, of
Anderson, nnother colonel <??) the
Governor's staff, the announcement
of the resignation having been sent
out from Anderson by Col, I.n M,
Green, stHl another colonel on the
Governor's staff. The light which
the Anti-Bleaseltes have been making
on the Governor seems secondary
with the onslaught now being made
"ii the Chief Executive by the mem?
bers of his official family, formerly
his warmest political supporters ami
idmirers, The resignation of Col,
Cheshire Is accounted the most *iur
nllieent development of the day, and
seems t" foreshadow n stampede h
Judge Jones, and n further strength?
ening of the assertion that Blease
will go down to defeat under an
avalanche of Jones votes, and
"Rleaseism" be consigned to ob?
livion, "It's the case of desertions
from a sinking ship," was the terse
comment of a strong political ob?
server this morning.
The following announcement, au?
thorized by Col. V. R. Cheshire, "re?
tired," was prepared last night by
Col, L. M. Green, of Anderson, and
soot oui to several papers ?>f the
"On the evt of Ihe opening of the
State campaign, and close upon the
recent break between Col, John P,
Grace, Mayor of Charleston, and
Governor Cole L, ill ease, is the an?
nouncement mad.- tonight that Col.
Victor 11. Cheshire, publisher of the
Anderson intelligencer, has resigned
from the stiff of Governor Blease.
This \a a political break of extreme
importance, for Col, Cheshire holds
the balance of power in Anderson
county, which polls 5,000 votes, and
which Governor lllease carried in the
last election by about S,M?. Political
observers say this break means ,1 loss
of Anderson county lo tin Governor,
and seriously affects his chances for
l e-elect ion.
"Col. Cheshire was attacked In his
office by a local magistrate and
another citizen, Whil ? a constable of
Governor Blease stood guard on R
near-by railway bridge. Col, Cheshire
asked for the removal of the two
men. and the Governor refused.
Thereupon Col, Cheshire resigned,
and will noi support the Governor In
his race for re-election.
?"The Mayor of Charleston begins
testimony to-morrow morning in Co?
lumbia -'is to his charge that he can
trace graft practically to the Govern?
or. This, with the break tonight be?
tween Blease and Cheshire. may
?hange the entire political situation
in the State.
