"Boy evangelists" will have to

the field of converting sinners
there is feminine competition, and
already one "girl evangelist" is

Edwards is a young person in her

shoulders in an unconfined way
that accentuates her girlshncss.
She has just returned to her home
from an eight months' tour

which she did not lose ten days

ROCK HILL, June 18.-The great
Senatorial contest has begun,

TILLMAN TROTTED IN THE RING.
President White, after caution
ing the crowd not to interrupt the
speakers, introduced Gov. Till

the front of the platform, paused
half minute, and, after the
cheering subsided, began by say
ing that he occupied a peculiar po

"I tyant to get down to the level

addressed a great peace and unity
public meeting just beyond the
railroad when the Winthrop
school corner-stone was laid.

--He said that he had b?en accus
ed of having a bitter tongue ; per

sponsible for all the dissensions in
South Carolina. "Look at the
manner in which I have been
abused by the newspapers, and in

r.boutthe State before I began

The people had been in a fever,
he said, for five years. While
some good had come of it, the time
had come for it to cease. The in

the same, and when the man who

wield a bitter tongue, but it re
quires courage to speak to an intel

have a separate ballot box at each
voting precinct in which the peo
ple, in the primary in September
may register their choice for Sena

rings and caucuses, I shall agree
to iibide by it. Will he do that?"
Voicos-"No, no, no."
"Oh, I think he will," said the

DIDN'T ASK FOR IT.
"Thc Governor says that the Sen

the privilege of accepting the vol

about finance. One of his friends

of his career, has stabbed the party by

That should teach you what to expect
of the Governor. I am as far from

other, and no one is better aware of it
than he, bnt I take no stock in tm's

demonetization, the Senator said :
"If the Governor will lend me the
dollar he has, I'll show you;
(smiling) he's better off than I
am." (The crowd laughed up
roariously.) I'll give it back to
him, or else play crack-loo for it."
The Governor came forward
with a grin and handed him the
The Governor says greenbacks
whipped UP. I was thar. It was
muskets and bayonets which
whipped us, or rather we got tired
out whipping the Yankees.
The Senator explained the
pension infamy and said that the
reason why it was not checked was
because we hadn't the votes. He
incidentally paid a tribute to the
Confederates, saying that there
never were such soldiers as the
soldiers of Lee and Jackson.
The Senator held up a large yel
low envelope. "I have plenty of]
ammunition hore. I want the Gov
ernor to understand that when I
tackle the State administration I
shall do it frankly, though in per
fect good humor. When I warm
his back he must take it like a
little man. He must take his pun
ishment. I shall take mine. I am
used to it.
A WORD ABOUT RECORDS,
I know the farmers are poor. I un
derstood that the Governor promired
when elected that he would help the
farmers. Are they better off? On the
other hand taxes have been increased.
I shall stand side by side with my peo
ple in their struggle. I challenge Gov
ernor Tillman to point to an instance
where I have not done my duty. It is
wrong to turn a man out of the Senate
only because he has done his duty. I
would lay down public life forever if
I could thereby see my people united
and living as brothers as they we're
four years ago. I utter a wari 'ng and
a prediction, that when the w" te peo
ple divide and appeal to the ir o vote
we shall have a period of degradation
worse than reconstruction, There is
nothing for me in the Senate. 1 am a
poorer man than when I went there. I
have not learned Lo steal or accept
bribes. I cin't be captured by ?old or

little vain, but 1 believe I am the man
to bring the people together.
Senator Butler was continually
cheered, and often had to stop and
quiet his friends before proceeding.

that a young, high stepping mule was
