THOS. J. ADAMS, - - - - - .- EDITOR
Jost now there seems to be a lull
in politics; but only for a time. The"
racket will begin again in a few
weeks, and . a, series of campaign
meetings will be held commenc
ing in the low country about the
middle of June. The State Demo
cratic Executive Committee met
in Columbia Tuesday night of
this week, and decided when and
where th?se campaign meetings
ahall.be held. We -will publish
the programme next-week.
The Coosaw victory would have
assured Tillman's re-election if he
had never done anything else in
the interest of the people of
: The Newa and Courier opposes a
.* . prohibition caupaign in this State,
s. although it says such an issue
brought into State politics now
. would aliniate more of Tillman's
followers than Sheppard's. A.h,

Upon the position taken by Gov.
Tillman in t;he direct tax cases,
. the anti'newspapers are absolutely
dumb. Why thus deprived of
speeeh. contempories? Why don't
you go for him? Isn't he a tyrant,
and a dictator, in thus depriving
those Charleston lawyers of their
hard earned pittance? Ah, bless
your little souls, you know a good
thing when you see it--but you are
just now inmates of the asylum
for the dumb.
We suppose that when the News
and Courier, assumes that a prohi
bition contest in this State would
take more votes from Tiilman than
Sheppard, it is for the same reason
that if yon fish in a trout.pond you
will catch more trout than suckers.
South Carolina is, one vast politi
cal fishpond full of Tillman fish,
jay suckers, hojnv-.heads,
and^Toaches, and if you .fish in
this pond and use the right kind
of bait you -will be apt to catch
more Tillman fish than any other
Thje Newberry Observer says in
. substance^that the Supreme Being
. is on. the'side of Ben Tillman.
The Observer 6aid nothing of
the kind. And it did not say the
Supreme Being is against Tillman
either. We nave more reverence
for the Supreme Being than to
represent Him as taking sides in
a political squabble.-Newberry
The ADVERTIRER doesn't wish
to misrepresent the Observer. We
. diagnosed his position from the
following editorial which appeared
in his paper about two weeks ago,
in explaining why the people
' follow Tillman the editor wrote,
"It is because Tillman, however
blindly * and inappreciably,
_ represents an undying principle
in the hearts of free men. It is
because the instinct of the masses
-and instinct is stronger and
truer with the human, as with the
? lower animals, than the reasoning
faculty-it is because this instinct
would tell them, if reasoning did
not, that Tillman is one of them
and is their champion. We are
"not defending, excusing or
eulogizing this instinct. We are
. simply stating . -it as actual
phenomena in human, nature and
as applying to the present case.
Its' existence through the will of a
Supreme Being must be its ample
In. the above paragraph our
contemporary states that instinct
has taught the masses that Till
man is their champion ; he also
states that instinct is given by the
Supreme Being. Now, if instinct
has taught the masses of the
- people in South Carolina that Till
man is their champion, and if the
Supreme Being has implanted
that instinct in their breasts,
then the Supreme Being is on the
side of Tillman. This is" your
' owa" logier-the syllogistic, con
. elusion of your own major and
minor propositions, and you can
neither evade nor avoid it.
Victor Hugo accourits for the
defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo by
saying: "The shadow of a mighty
right hand was cast over Waterloo ;
- it was the day of destiny, and the
force which is above iaan
produced that day." Your logic
has brought the conclusion that
the shadow of a mighty right hand
is against Ha skell i em and Orr
Sheppardism in South Carolina
and favors Tillman, and yet you
keen'up the fight against Tillman,
against the instinct of the masses,
The" May Convention, State
Democratic Convention, meets in
Columbia to-niglit, Wednesday.
The "duty of this convention is to
nom?nate delegates to the National
Democratic convention at Chicago,
and "to nominate . an executive
committeeman for South Carolina.
If this body should follow the
precedent established when John
ston Hagood was nominated for
Governor, it could nominate Till
man for Governor, but no such
thing will be done ; neither Till
man nor his lieutenants could be
induced to follow any such bad
example. The conventiou. may
endorse Tillman, but it would be
wise to uot even do this.- Not to
ask for an endorsement when the
power to get it was absolutely and
overwhelmingly his; would'show
such a confidence on the part. of
Governor Tillman in himself and
the people, that it would paralyze

would blast the credit of and

doing they could bring reproach

Tillman defeated. But, Brother,
.let's steer our frail barks between
the Scylla and Charybdis of these
party factions-Newberry^ Obsevei
One of our correspondents writet
us that "the conventipn which meeti
in Columbia Wednesday, the 18th
will nominate Tillman as one oj
the delegates to Chicago, and that
when he gets to Chicago they'll
nominate him for President. The
consequence will be that we'lj
never see him no more-that he'l.1
never come back no more but he
hopes Ben will make a lau
requiring all the candidates foi
Prepident to go around and speak
at all the cross roads in the
United States, and then we'll see
him some more."

" I never felt any but good efl

Dr H. S. Tanner, whose fast o
forty days some years ago madi

convinced that if a man shoult

he should not live to be a hundrec

Dr Tanner is now engaged ii

novel plan for making futun

bought, a 1,500-acre ranch nea

this plan, "and built a bonn

remain in and of the world if
they wish but if they prefer our
colony life they can return to us,
but with the understanding that
they can marry only among them

pose that in time their descendants,
free from any hereditary taint,
will be as near perfect men and

GOVERNOR TILLMAN FIRM.
Claim Will Not be Honored.
Some time ago there appeared in
the News and Courier an
advertisement-concerning the pay
ment of the direct tax refund.
Several lawyers, who claim that
they are entitled to a large slice of
refund for rendering services
which have never been proven,
made an advertisement that called
forth a prompt warning from
Governor Tillman to -the direct
tax claimants.- In yesterday's
News and Courier appeared a
lengthy, leaded defense by^, the
lawyers in question, asserting that
their claims were just and giving
no. proof of the same. They
claimed that Governor Tillman
had >no right to denominate their
' I demand as an "outrageous claim
for unearned money."
In refernce to this lengthy
defense, Governor Tillman spoke
as follows yesterday :
I "adhere to the opinion that it is
an unjust and outrageous claim/
aud under the law I have the
power to protect the taxpayers and
intemd to do it. There is no
evidence whatever that the
attorneys got Congress to pass the
bill refunding the direct tax. The
attorneys were employed to prose
cute the claims in court and not
to act as lobbyists to Congress.
They never did prosecute the
claims In court. The money was
refunded ex gratia. Congre?e
imposed the provision that all
such claims by lawyers should be
barred. Never would any moue)1
have ' been-refunded but for .thc
fact, that Northern States were tc
receive $10 for every dollar thal
11 came South."
In reference to a number ol
complaints that have come up
from Charleston as to the conducl
of Mr. C. Richardson ?Miles, the
Master for the county who is tc
prove the claims of the appellants
for refund, Governor Tillman said :
i ^?^plaiiftr'H?ve been made.lc
f me" that Master Miles is withhold
ing refund certificates at thc
nstance of Magrath and' .othei
lawyers. I have written to Mr.
Miles on this subiect."
Mr. Mil?B's conduct in reference
to the proving of claims hai
? I caused considerable dissatisfactior
Until written to by Governor Till
on the subject he collected fron
each claimant $1 for which ther(
was no warrant of law.

Cheap Editions and reprints have been frequently offered by
>eriodicals as premiums to subscribers, but never before has an origi
?al subscription edition on best paper, and in cloth, binding (sold ar.
etail at $7.00), been reduced to fifty cents-probably less than the
ost of the binding alon?-and presented to the readers of a magazine
ipon receipt of fifty cents.
Such an offer will never be made again. Xo publisher could afr
ord to make it unless he wished to present a magazine which' he felt
iure had only to bo introduced to retain its permanent place on the
amily book table-a magazine just as interesting to the young boy or ?
fi ri as to the oldest grey head.
THE COSMOPOLITAN gives in a year, 1536 pages of reading by
lie ablest authors in the world, with over 1300 illustrations by clever
irtists. a magazine whose field is the world, and as the best test of
neril is success, its growth from 16,000 to 100,000 copies within the
mst I bree years, best attests its worth.
