jje Jbkcs a Statement Cowctrr.in^ the
^portcu "Alliance" iietween Governor

To The Editor of the Greenville

B. 11. Till u: an had a conference of any
kind, by correspondence or otherwise..
and have they made an agreement 01 j
understanding as to their respective I
courses in any matter allecting the |
public interests or politics in the State?
"If there has been or is an agreement
or understanding between them,
what is it?"
As I know no reason "why thev
should not be answered*', I will cheer/
fully give you the light you seek. This
/ can best be done by a short statement
When I commenced the agitation of
the issues which form the core ot the
formers' movement, viz: The establishment
of a real Agricultural College
and the reorganization of the department
of Agriculture, the JSews and
Courier was emphatic In it? approval
of the college idea, and did not oppose
the other. I started out as an agricultural
reformer?without any design or
desire to make the movement a political
one, except to the extent oi securIiKT

almost before I knew it, I found my sclf
swept oil'my feet, as it v/ere, by a
grand uprising for political reform;
reduction of taxes, purification of the
Government and correction of abuses
being the leading ideas. Ten years of Republican
misrule, followed by ten years
of Democratic imbecility, and a growing
disregard of the rights and wishes of
the masses, had laid the mine. I struck
a match for another purpose and the
explosion known as the "Farmers'
Convention" followed. Its reverberations
have not yet died away, and its
effects pa>t and to come, upon the
future of this State, are plainly to be
Capt. Dawson left for Europe in
Januarv, the SS'ctrs and Courier up to
that time having' been my friend. During
Iiis absence the paper somersaulted
and began to attack the movement by
a series ot insidious editorials aimed at
the "call" for the Convention and intended
to bamboozle the fanners or
divide them. And these changed to
strongly antagonistic editorials immediately
after the Convention adjourned.
Some days after tne adjournment Capt.
Dawson returned home and I wrote to
ask him whether he dictated the course
of the paper while away, and to learn
whether i could still use his columns,
lie replied he had not, and that the
paper was open to me for any legitimate
purpose, lie said lie was stiil an
advocate ot a farmer's college, but
could not swallow some things which
the Convention had recommended. 1
suggested that if we could have a conference
an agreement might be rescued.
Jle agreed to this and we metm Augusta
nt ?!io .Tunc '2. and we
discussed the whole of the work of the
Farmers* Convention, or what I
deemed its important work. Xo one
word was said about any man's candidacy,
not one word about any combination
or alliance. The conversation
related solely to existing abuses, many
of which had not been broached by the
Farmers' Convention, and the whole
of it might have appeared the next day
in Tint without exciting any surprise
or con mc-nt. We made"no agreement
of any kind, bat parted with the tacit
understanding that the Sews and
Courier would advocate and urge the
w establishment of an Agricultural Culsw^ppy?.
as it had done from the start,

the whole of it. not undertake
to keep others from advocating the
abolition of the Citadel, and there was
110 subsequent agreement between us
to any man's candidacy. It can be
now seen upon what small foundation
rests the lie, started the l.ight before
the State Convention mec, about the
' Dawson-Tillman-Sheppard combination."
The Columbia ring", which had
started that lie and then packed the
galleries of the Opera House in the
interest of the candidate ot their choice
are welcome to their victory. It remains
to be seen whether Col. Eichardson
will prove the pliaut tool they hope
for or whether lie will redeem the
pledge he has made. The farmers of
South Carolina are awake at last,
thank God! and will know how to
reward or punish him and others according
to their deserts. As I am on
the witness stand, and mention has
been made of the "parallel courses of
Mr. Tillman and of Copt. Dawson in
the Convention," I will simply state
why I voted lor [Messrs. Sheppard anci
Hutson? we did not ran together 011
attorney general and all votes were
purely accidental, certainly not the
result of any "understanding." Edgefield
voted solidly for -Mr. Iiutson lor
two reasons: First, because of resentment
against Greenville, which had
found votes for everybody but Governor
Secondly, Edgefield and Hampton
are in tiie same Congressional district
and arc on very friendly terms.
As regards my support of Governor
Sheppard. Long before Governor
Thompson's resignation and, therefore,
before there was the least probability
of his being a candidate, Governor
Sheppard and I had discussed the
issnos r.rpsonlnrl hv thft Farmers' Con
vention, and I found him in full accord
with us in everything except the calling
of a constitutional convention and
the abolition of the Military Academy.
Therefore, when he became Governor
and was naturally considered in the
race as his own successor 1 had to decide
belween him and others. We
made strenuous efforts to find a strong
candidate of cur own. "We had tried
to convert some men whom we thought
available, but failed. They couldn't
*:sce it," and when the Convention
mot we were virtually ;it sea. We
lacked forty votes of being able to
control the nomination, and therefore
were forced to a choice among the
avowed candidates. ZS'ow, why did I
urge Governor Sheppard as our candidate?
First. Because he came nearest being
on our piattorm. \v ltnoiu any seinsn
or ulterior design, so far as I could see,
lie liad so expressed himseir long
before Governor Thompson's resignation,
and reduced his ideas t;> writing
at my request, after i had decided to

has tilled every \ ositiou he has occupied

cents 011 the dollar, and there is no

heard of, and he had fallen heir to the
office, so to speak. 1 have been accused

after making such a blow about

oppose him, lie was in accord with j
our views, we had been playmates at
school and friends ever since. lie
lived in Edgefield and was lier son.
"What reason did I have to antagonize
him ? I had never clamored lor a "New
Peal," and 1 had asserted that the farmers'
movement only aimed to secure
oar rights?not to ostracise or impose
on other classc*.
I am damned by the editors and reporters
because they say this is my
purpose, and when I disprove it by
voting for a man who i> not a tanner,
I am "damned because 1 do so. 1 am
in the interesting situation described
in the doggerel:
"He can and lie can't.
He will and won't:
He'll !- damned if lie does,
And he'll be damned if he don't"
The farmers of South Carolina rnii*t
decide the question as to whether I
have betrayed them, misled them or
deceived. I do not claim to be infalli-:
blc, but I do claim to be honest and
unselfish. I defy any man to prove
the contrary. Ii' the people send the
right men to the Legislature we will
secure our rights as farmers and al!
needed reform politically. If we do
not, [ will then, if alive, try to find i
out why and to tell them who. is to
blame B. Ii. Tillman.

THE LATE DR. IIAYA'E.
A South Carolinian Who Lived <in His Wife's
Earnings as Long as He Could.
[Froni the Philadelphia Times ]
Years ago Julia Dean, a very pretty and
engaging actress, was a great favorite in all
American cities and bad a host of admirers
in her train. Having mind and character
likewise, all who knew her esteemed
and honored her. In an evil hour she listened
to tiie impassioned suit of Dr.
Ilayne, son of Robert Y. Hayne. of South
Carolina; was fluttered by his preference.
bne was somewnat amuiuous socially acu
accepted him, having no idea that a gentleman
of his antecedents and exalted profession
would think for a moment of allowing
her to remain cn the stage. Dr. H'ayr.e
was, it is said, always talking of the superiority
of his native State, of his father,
the eloquent Senator, of his illustrious ancestors
and imaginary illustrious self. No
one who had heard his vaporings'would
have believed him other than the embodiment
of the most sensitive honor and most
majestic chivalry. "When he pressed her
to hasten the wedding day she gave as a
reason for deferring it that she had certain
theatrical engagements to fill, and that shewas
anxious to complete these before
changing her name. But he was so persistent
that she yielded at last, and was delighted
that his love was stronger than his much
vaunted pride. She regarded it as an extraordinary
concession that he should be
willing to permit his wife, known to be
such before the world, to act even for a
few months. When her engagements had
expired he showed, to her surprise, no objection
to her entering into new ones. Her
surprise deepened into painful amazement
and mortification when she saw, as time
went on. that he made no opposition to her
supporting him. lie had no income of his
own; he did not try to practice his profession:
he merely traveled with her and
shared her earnings, or rather took by far
the larger half. She loved the man. She
would have been onlv too happv to work
for him night and day liad lie been ill or
disabled. But to see him, robust, in comparative
youth, lounging around hotels,
smoking, drinking, playing billiards, and
talking about being a gentleman, wholly at
her expense and without lite least regret,
tortured her pride and rendered her
wretched, as it would have rendered any
womanly woman. 2\o amount of love
could endure such an experience. It turned
to contempt anil he was aware of it. But
lie did not care so long as his bills were
paid. She kept her own secret locked in
! her heart, for she respected herself and outwardly
rcspectcd him. But the time came
when she could no longer bear it. She left
him, obtained a divorce and he became the
late Dr. Haync. How he managed afterward
nobody knows or cares.

T!ie \ew Silver Certificates.
The Bureau of Engraving and Printing
has began to print :he new ten dollar silver
certificates. They :trc printed on the new
distinctive paper, which was manufactured
expressly for them. Each sheet contains
four notes, and 5,000 impressions were
taken in the first day's printing. Thirty
days will be required to finish them, as
they have to go through several processes.
It is not expected, however, that they will
be put in circulation much before the middle
of November, when the new one and
two dollar silver certificates will be ready. :

being transferred to steel. The plates will
be ready for the printer about the middle
of next month. The design for the ten
dollar plate was commenced some time be- !
fore Congress ordered the new notes. This !
is the reason why the larger denominations i
are so much nearer completion than the j
new small notes. As soon as the plates for
the new one and two dollar silver certificates
are ready, the full force of printers
will be employed to finish the notes as
rapidly as possible. But it cannot be exi
pected that they will be put into circulation
! much before the middle of November, if,
i in fact, they are ready quite as soon as that.
The Railways of the World.
The lines of railways in the five divisions
of the earth cost, in round numbers, slG,000.000.000;
and would, according to
Baron Kolb, reach ei?ht times round the
" lobe, although it is but little over have a
century since the first railway worked by
steam was opened between Darlington and
Stockton. Sept. 27. 1825. and between
Manchester and Liverpool. Sept. 15.1830.
It is shown that in France, previous to the
existence of railways, there was one passenger
in every 335,000 killed, and one out
of every 30.000 wounded: whereas between
1*35 and 1*75. there was but one in 5.178,800
killed, and one in 580,450 wounded; so
that we may infer that the tendtnoy to accidents
is yearly diminishing. Railway
traveling in England is attended with
greater "risk than any other country in
Europe. A French statistician observes
that if a person were to live continually in
a railway carriage, and spend all his time
in railway traveling, the chances of his
dying from a railway accident would not
occur till he was 9G0 years old.

Mine. Modjoska's Pug I>og.
Actresses and their managers, in
these clays of red-hot competition, devise
ingenious plans to keep the name
of the "star" prominently before the
public. An innocent-looking paragraph
goes the rounds stating that Miss Soand-so
carries a crocodile's tooth in her
pocket as an amulet; or that she travels
with two servants, four birds, and six
cats, with a monkey thrown in by way
of a comic tooth; or that she has lost
diamonds worth $10,000. But the following
is a true story of Mme. Modjeska:
A little while ago, while performing
out West, she purchased a pug dog.
Her manager saw in this trilling occurrence
matter for a pleasant puff. He
waited on one of the "leading citizens"
of Louisville and induced him to make
a formal presentation of the dog to the
actrcss. An elaborate red and gold
collar was purchased., and when the dog
was invested with this ornate equipment
the* "leading citizen" came upon the
stage at the end of the play, and in a
flowing speech presented the black- j
muzzled canine to Mmc. Modjeska, who
expressed deep thanks in a few choice
phrases of prettily fractured English
and then gracefully withdrew, clasping
puggv to her breast and kissing him
effusively. Reporters were present, of
course, to chronicle these touching incidents,
and for a week ingenious little
paragraphs floated up and down the
stream of Western journalism, in which
- ' >" ?i.: * *
the liberality 01 tne "leaning cuizcw), |
the handsome pug, and Madame Modjeska's
shining talents were curiously
mixed up. The dog had paid for himself
ten times over.
The pug, however, was not to be a
source of perpetual joy to his fair mistress.
He usually accompanied her to
the theater, a servant holding him well
in leash. One night in Philadelphia,
when the actress v,*as playing "Adrienne
Lecouvreur," during* the last act,
when she was writhing under the baleful
inlluence of the poisoned bouquet,
by some mischance pugg}* slipped his
noose and walked gravely on the stage,
and recognizing his mistress, reared
/tnmiftoIIv mirrn liis hmmf-hflS
iillliOVXX wimvis4?j ?*
and watched t)ic thrilling scene. In
vain the people at the wings endeavored
to coax him off. He seemed to be interested
in Adrienne's emotional and
startling attitudes. In vain the actress
scowled at him. Not comprehending
the nature of licr gestures, he rushed
about the stage in the maddest manner,
whining and howling alternately. To
say that the audience shrieked with
laughter is hardly to convey an idea of
the amusement afforded by the unexpected
intruder. Of course the great
scene of the play came to an abrupt
end. Modjcska fled in dismay; her
maid, terror-stricken at the roar of the
audience, rushed upon tbe stage, and.
in endeavoring to seize his pugship,
caught her foot in the carpet and fell
sprawling, with her head in the flowers
that the actress, a few moments before,
had flung to the ground. The curtain
descended in double-quick time; the
void's, with violent
objurgations fiercely intermixed, was
heard behind the scenes; and the spectators
ncarlv '"laughed their heads off"
as they made their way to the street.?
