CAMPAIGN AT CONWAY.

THE DAY WAS VEEY QUIET.
Tillman Denounces Cleveland
Very Bitterly-"The Most
Damnable Traitor. That
Ever Filed That Office."
CONWAY, S. C., July 4.-The
South Carolina campaigners spoke
here to-day, spending the glorious
Foui th in the most out of the way
county in the State -the "Inde
pendent Republic of Horry." There
were about one thousand persons
at the speaking, including excur
sionists who came from all over
the county. A noteworthy feature
of the day was that Governor Till
man and Gen. Butler occupied the
same carriage and the same seat
in riding to the place of meeting.
Gubernatorial candidates Evans
and Pope were not present. The
crowd showed no enthusiasm, and
sat like sphynxes throughout most
of the speaking. Gen. Butler got
some applause when he finished,
and Governor Tillman waked up
tin crowd with his Tillmanesque
sayings and harsh denunciations
County Chairman J. P. Derham
announced himself a candidate for
Comptroller General. Representa
tive G. Walt Whitman was intro
duced as tho "man who wants to
dismantle the South Carolina Col
lege." He declared thatit wa* throw
^Jn^w^vj^gjj^J support this inj
S(6tution,aud thai over half the stu
dents came from Richland county.
He had nothing to say against the
Citadel yet, as ?lemson College's
facilities were restricted. He knew
of only one graduate from the
South Carolina College who was a
Reformer, and that man was on
the bench. He thought even he
would not be a Reformer had it
not been that the old ring had mal
treated somp of his relatives. The
reference is supposed to mean
Judge Eugene Gary. The college
had been established to educate a
ruling class, and build up a politi
Superintendent of Education
Mayfield spoke next. He said it
might be good policy to change the
other State officers every two years,
hut in the case of the Superin
tendent of Education, the experi
ence of the other States showed
that this officer has a system to
develop. Massachunetts, with the
best school system in the United
States, has had the same superin
tendent for thirty-six years. His
opponent proposed to better the
school system by using for the
public schools an appropriation
made for the South Carolina Col
lege, but if he would make a cal
culation he would find thia would
give only If per cent, per pupil.
He declared that Whitman's im
putation upon a graduate of the
college that he was not a Reformer
from principle was an unfortunate
one. He defended Gary and as
serted he was and is a Reformer
from conviction, and was not in
fluenced by family.
Short speeches w*re made by
Comptroller General Ellerbe, Sec
retary of State Tindal, and Judge
Hill, after which Gen. Butler was
introduced. Gen. Butler put in a
word for the common school sys
tem. He did not concur in the
declaration that it was a humbug.
There was no fault to find with
the system. The trouble arose
from a lack of money to carry on
the schools long enough. He de
clared it was a duty the people
owed themselves and their children
and their State to sustain every
educational institution in the
State. He did not think that it
was wise to provide taxation in the
fundamental law of the State.
That ought to be left to the rcpre
sentatives of the people who c<
increpe or decrease it as occa
required. Wheu occasion requi
When he spoke of the money

in the crowd remarked, "You 1

OLD "BEAUFOKT TOWN."
Our Brilliant Correspondent
Sends Us a Most Entertaining
Letter from the Islands
and the Sea.
MR. EDITOR: This beautiful old
place, "Beaufort Town," was once
the summer home of the wealthy
sea-island planters. In the dis
tance, across the waters of Lie bay,
can be seen Paris Island and the
Coosaw and Baldwin fertilizer
works. On Paris Island are the
United States naval station, and
the huge dTy-dock for repairing
and making vessels for the govern
Port Royal is only five miles dis
tant from Beaufort. It can be
reached from here either by rail
or a splendid shell road. Port
Royal is now attracting attention
on account of its magnificent har
bor. The "Berman Hall," one of
the large steamers from Liverpool
is now daily expected.
Many of the handsome homes of
Beaufort have passed from the
original owners and are now occu
pied by Northern people who came
to this goodly land "after the cruel
war was over." Others of the grand
old homes are tenantless, the "ban
quet hall deserted." The large
brick stables and kitchens tell the
tale of other days, although now
"Ichabod thy glory is departed," is
written over all. ^
The old Episcopal Church built
away back in the seventeens, and
which has sent nut so many godly
sleepers who rest around its conse
crated walls, regardless of the
"changes and chances" that have
befallen the loved ones who are
left. The Baptist Church also is
another old landmark whose
strength and breadth and liberal
proportions tell of the liberal souls
which devised liberal things for
the honor of God and His wor
For rest, recreation, and pleas
ure there is no place like the sea
shore. Recently a pleasant party
went out from here seaward. After
stopping at the United States naval
station and Port Royal we kept on
until the sky and water seemed to
meet, and the ocean greeted us,
and the surf roared and thundered
on "Bay Point." Then the sturdy
steamer turns homeward, back to
Beaufort, and notwithstanding the
lunch served aboard ship, we hur
ried home for dinner with sharp
As I write, the "flowing tide
sweepB in," the breeze comes with
it. It is near sunset and the beauty
and chivalry of the town are out
walking and driving. Ladies in
pretty evening toilettes, some with
hats, some without, bicyclists fly
past on their favorite "bikes."
Some of the young gents are
clothed in spotless suits of white
duck, with shoes and caps also of
white duck. On the broad piazzas
family groups sit and shat with
passing friends, pleasure boats
dance on the glistening waters.
Some hundred yards out stands
the bath-house, a pretty pagoda
looking building. When the tide
suits, groups are seen going for a
1 dip in the salt," and shouts of
laughter greet our ears as the more
venturesome swim out away and
beyond the bath bouse.
The Sea leland Hotel, once the
Heyward mansion, presents a most
attractive appearance and is well
kept. Here we met Miss Maud
O'Dell, a Southern girl who is
carving out fame and a name
for herself in dramatic art. She
is at homo with her parents on a
visit, but told me she would soon
leave on a two years trip to Cali
fornia and elsewhere as a leading
lady in a prominent theatrical
company. Luck to her, and a
plenty of it!
In Beaufort as in every Southern
picture, there ie the black back
ground. Negroes abound. They
pass by all hours of the night and
day. The young ones seem to roam
the streets idly and aimlessly,
besiege your doors with vegetables,
fip.h, chickens, crabs, shrimps, etc.,
and it is the first time in my life
I ever saw negroes begging "Please
mam give me a piece of bread." I
do not know that they are hungry,
or just like the looks of the house
and ask from idleness. Sometimes
when bread is proffered they want
molasses on the bread. I hear of
none starving. I have never seen
so many vegetables and fish. The
i negroes have a large and commo
dious school house iu town and
two industrial schools near by con
ducted by Northern people. In
spite of the educational features,
however, the old sea-island lingo
is often heard. The negroes all
seem very civil and there seems to
be un friction or ill-feeling between
the races. So much for the negro
problem that will "down at our

us in pleasant places," on a visit
to an old friend and school-mate.
I find myself domiciled in a grand
old house, said to be more than
150 years old, and thu largest and
coolest of rooms. The entire
length of the house upstairs was a
ballroom, which has since been
separated into vast rooms, where
two sets of furniture seem quite at
home, and room for more. Lafay
ette, they say, was once entertain
ed in this house. The curiously
carved wooden mantelpieces are
scarcely to be reached by people of
moderate height, and are no broad
er than your hand. The house is
built of Tabby, a material com
posed of oyster shells, brick, and
cement. The daughters of the
house are as "polished corners of
the temple," and cared for their
guest as if she had been their own,
man. Quoting, "we meet them on I
their winding way," he kindly held
the light, and with the grace of a
Chesterfield, bowed us to our cham
ber door. "There is life in the old
land yet," and oh! that the youths
who stare and jostle ladies in a
crowd would imitate the elegant
polite manuere of the race of gen
tlemen so fast passing away.

gentle-mannered, cultured people
I have met, I must say "Goodbye,"

The Mechanism of Thought. .
The Fortnightly Review.
A person shuts his eyes of his
own free will. We take his hand,
we cross the . orefinger and the
middle finger one over the other,
and between them we slip a little
ivory ball. A singular illusion
immediately arises. The person
believes he feels two distinct halls.
And why? No doubt because un
der ordinary conditions, when the
fingers are not crossed, one ball
would not simultaneously touch
the right edge of the forefinger and
the left edge of the middle finger
-two balls being necessary to pro
duce the sensation. Such is tue
experimental fact which we all
possess in our memory without be
ing conscious of it.
By au artificial arrangement of
the fingers, one ball may produce
these two impressions, and the
mind, not taking into account this
artificial disposition of the fingers
and interpreting the impression by
the ordinary rules, arrives at the
illusion of touch which has just
been described. Nothing is sim
pler to bring about than this illu
sion, because the sensory impres
sion from which it is derived may
be modified at will, without any
necessity of speaking to the sub
jeci Under experiment. Is it the
same with an idea? Evidently
not. For in order tc communicate
au idea one must speak to a per
son, and make one's self under
stood ; so that as he becomes in
formed about the object of one's
inquiry, illusion is impossible.

Wliat Dr. Wayland Thinks of
' Gov, Tillman-How He
Won His Hearers.
Dr. Heman Lincoln Wayland,
the.Philadelphia editor of the Ex
aminer, the leading Baptist paper
in America, heard Gov. Tillman at
the Neal Dow Temperance Memo
rial in that city and writes of him
as follows :
"The main attraction of the
evening was Gov. Tillman, of South
Carolina, who, though not, I be
lieve, the author, was the executor
of the dispensary liquor law of the
State. I h^.d read a good bit about
him, and had formed an idea of
him as being au agitator, a dema
gogue, a man of rather the stamp
of Gov. Waite, of Colorado, and
Gov. Llewellyn, of Kansas. But
my views (I can hardly call them
opinions) were largely changed.
He is about as far from being a
fool as possible. He is a man of
forty-seven years, with apparently
a good deal of bodily vigor. He has
lost his left eye, but whether this
is one of the triumphs of war or
one of the incidents of peace I do
not know. He has an unusual
power of popular speech, and com
manded the attention of the peo
ple perfectly during his hour; and
I think they would have listened
to him for another hour, with eager
fixedness. He certainly showed a
great deal of courage by coming
all thc way from South Carolina to
address a Prohibition audience,
and by stating to fh?m distinctly
that he was not a Prohibitionist,

removes the elements of personal
profit, since the person who acts
as agent in sailing for the State
makes no ^ain, however much he
may sell. He claimed that It re
duces the amount of liquor used
and increases the purity of the
liquor and the honesty of the
quart, and that it diminishes dis
order and crime. I am sure that
he impressed eye ry one as a brave,
capable man, able to hold his own

DEATH BY LIGHTNING.'
An Incident of a Terrific Thun
der Storm in Orange
Nows and Courier.
ORANGEBURG, July 5.-A terrific
thunder storm passed over this city
this afternoon. The lightning was
very frequent and more than one
person was badly scared. A n&gro
named Leslie Galson, an excellent
carpenter, was killed by lightning.
He was working on one of the sec
tion houses of the Atlantic Coast
Line, and when the storm came up
work was stopped and the carpen
ters all sought shelter in the build
ing. Galson remarked to the head
workman that he was going to try
to get in a safe place, and he had
hardly said this when a flash of
lightning came, and Galson, who
was standing at that moment near
the front door in a draft, fell dead.
Henry Dickson, colored, who
was standing near Galson, had his
right arm badly burned. A small
colored boy, in the* same house,
had his hair singed, and Tom
Swan's left arm was paralyzed for
a time. Several bruises were found
on Galson's back. His standing in
the draft was evidently what
brought the lightning to him.
Several old citizens observed this
afternoon that there have been
more lightning killings this year
than they could recall in several
years. The storm did considerable
damage to crops.

As a curative agent the snake,
dead or alive, is thought highly of.
lu Suffolk they hold that goitre
may be cured in the following man
ner : Let a second person hojd the
common snake by its head and
tail, aud draw it slowly nine times
across the diseased neck ; but after
every third time the creature must
be allowed to crawl about awhile.
It must afterward be put alive into
a bottle, which should be tightly
corked and buried-the swelling
will waste with the snake. Some
say the snake should be killed and
its skin worn around the neck.
In other parts of Suffolk a snake's
avel (skin) is worn inside the hat
for headache. Mr. Black, in his
"Folk Medicine." states that an
old man used to sit on the steps of
King's College Chapel, at Cam
bridge, selling snake sloughs (self
cast skins) for tho same complaint.
