Vhe members of the Soul h Car

Mr. Traxler Has Prospered.
Since Hixson claims that John
Gary Evans said that, the people
have been talking of D. H. Trax
ler getting rebates while he was
liquor commissioner, it might be
well to remark that it is reported
that Traxler has recently built a
brick store at Timmonsville and
made other investments there. It
is al sp said, that Traxlcr offered
?S.000 for a prce of properly in
Darlington some time ago and
agreed to pay cash. Ordinarily the
people of South Carolina would
have no right to enquire into a
man's private business, but, on ac
count of mutterings which have
been going on for several years,
and, especially in view of recent
dispensary scandals, they have a
perfect righi to ask where Mr.
Traxler got $8,000 in casi? these
Ex-Judge Thoa. J. Mackey of the
reconstruction period is in South
Carolina again after an abseuce ci
fourteen years. In an interview in
the Columbia Register, amongolh
things, ho says:
"After fourteen years absence,'
he began, "I ara again in the storm

blow from the North, the South,
the East and the West, but the
storm i? always in South. Carolina.
When I left here Conner was at Hu
head of the bar, but as I return 1
find Iiis Excellency, the Governor
at the hea 1 of the bar."
With this little joke he went or
lo Bay that hp was now of Neu
York, but that ho had lived ii
France, near Paris, where he farm
ed and did literary work when hf
had an opportunity. "But I qui!
farming," he said, "becauseI couk'
not associate *.vith such immora
people as farmers, who put all theil
best apples on top of the barre
and all their best potatoes on th(
top of theheap. But," ho?added
"I believe next to the members o

was that he could SAvear in only ow

"I can swear in three languages,'

In reference to Lee he said hi
would show that Lincoln had of
fered him the command of the Un
ion armies, believing that he wonk
stay in because he had condemnec
the firing on Fort Sumter, but thal
incident had not only fired the
Southern but the Northern hean
and Lee cast his lot with his na
tive State- and the Confederacy.
Speaking of Cleveland, he sait
sarcastically, that he was undoubt
edly a great man and from an ar
tist's standpoint he had cleared thc
landscape beautifully. When this
was darkened by tho smoke, and
dust of iron and steel foundries
and wool factories, it had all been
cleared away by his policy. Ile
had removed it. Cleveland sits at
i Buzzard's Bay fishing. He spends
tho time, impaling a squirming
worm on a hook, thinking and car
ing nothing for the squirming far
mer of the South and West. "J
don't, see," ho added, "what Cleve
land wants to stay there for any
way. No man associated with the
name buzzard can ever bepopulai

Charleston Compresses Object to
"W ire Ties for Cotton.
[Last week we published a card
from Durst tfe Co., of Greenwood
advocating the use of wire lies for
baling cotton. The following is on
tho other side :]
"The Charleston compresses are
disposed to help the farmers in
their fight against the flat iron t e
trust, and the fact that they took
the initiative in pressing the wire
bound bah.s proves this, but the
compresses now sa\* that tho wire
ties in use are too much for them
and they feel constrained to call a
It appears that the wire fust used
was too thin and that it cut the
bagging considerably. To obviate
this, the alliance recently adopted
a thicker wire but in doing away
with one objection they have
brought on another and a much
more serious difficulty. The wire
ties which are now coming to the
compresses are not pliable enough
and the compress men cannot man
The trouble took something of a
definite shape to-day when Mr. W.
E;.Huger, the receiver ol' the East
?hore Terminal Railroad compress,
addressed the following lotter lo
Messrs. Knoop, Prericks & Co.,
which speaks for itself:
Messrs. Knoop, Frenchs ifc Co.,
City. Gentlemen: Among Hie bales
received from the railroad yester
day for your house at the union
colton press there are some eigh
teen or twenty wire bands ii!:e the
one that accompanying this note, lt
is impossible for the press to tie
cotton with thi3 wire. It is only
necessary for you to examine the
twist or iock made by the country
man himself to see how useless it
would be to make this kind \,f a
hitch on a compressed bale.

what you want dune in regard to

r Aiken, September 25.-Senator
1 B. R. Tillman arrived in Aiken this
3 morning via ihe Atlantic Coast
? Lii.e.euroute to his homo at Tren?
f ton. As he had several hours to
t wait ho went to the' Busch Hous'1
? and took breakfast and rested. 'On
hearing that the Senator was at
3 the Busch House your correspon
. dent went down and called on him,
1 and had a pleasant chat of ab'-ut
3 ten or fifteen minutes. He did not
3 appear to be the least fatigued, and
1 was quite talka'iv\ lie has been
1 making speeches in Pennsylvania
- and other places North, and spoke
1 twice in North Carol?ia yester
1 In reply to my question as to
. how did he find politics in North
3 Carolina he answered: "The worst
- mixed, up you oversaw." The Pop
s' ulists had combined with the Dem
ocrats on the eh-ctoral ticket, and
with the Republicans on Congross
i men. Ue said he took occasion in
1 his two speeches yesterday to give
s the Populists h-. To do this ef
- fectivelyhe paved the way by first
pitching info the old line Demo
3 crats-the old oligarchy. Ile said
- he couldn't tell what would be the
- result of these combines, as they
I were made by the Populist leaders
1 and not by the masses.
t As to the chances of Bryan in
? Pennsylvania Mr. Tillman was not
I enthusiastic. His attention was
called to Col. McClure's estimate
of tho vote in Pennsylvania, pub
lished in to-day's Augusta Chroni
cle, in which Col. McClure said
McKinley would have 300,000 ma
jority. Mr. Tillman poohpoohed
this, and said the Democrats would
reduce the usual Republican ma
jority in that Stale and gain some
In reference to the general out
look for the success of the Bryan
ticket Mr. Tillman said it was good.
Prom the information he gathered
from travelling men and from com
mitteemen that he met in Wash
ington and elsewhere he has been
led to believe that Bryan will car
ry every State West of Ohio, and
the Democrats have a good fight
ing chance in Ohio. And, lie added,
"wo'vu got to elect Bryan."
Mr. Tillman was next asked
about the truthfulness of the tele
graphic report that "he had been
howled down at Reading, Pa."
Without denying or affirming the
report, he said the article taken
from tho Reading Eagle and pub
lished in Thursday's Columbia
Register was correct.
The conversation al this junc
ture turne.i on State politics,on th*1
Senator's own mot on. He began
by asking. "What's the news down
here?" To this your correspondent
answered, "Nothing much now;
plenty of dry weather, with polities
"1 s e joli have turned John down
since t left," the Senator continu
ed. "Well, !:" defeated himself.
Thai iel 1er of his on the eve of the
s cond primary was enough to de
feat hin). I advised linn against
sending out that letter. On my
wa) North'John' got on Hie train
at Columbia and rode with me be-j
tween the two depots, and showed
ni" :1M-letter, but I did not have,
ti.i.' lo read it all over. I told him
then if he published that letter it j
would defeat him. The next thing
I knew," said the Senator, "the let-1
ter was published."
?Senator Tillman said, John took
nobody's advice; the Senatorial
campaign was the worst, bungled
affair he ever saw. Ha advised
John to pay no attention tc Duncan
and ignore him altogether, but on
every stump John would refer to
Duncan, and would endeavor to
answer every charge except the ono
important charge he should have
answered-the charge that referred
to himself (Tillman) as having
lined his own pockets-this he ig
"Some time ngo 'John' told him
about what he had found out about
Mixeon and the rebates, and he
then advised 'John' to remove Mix
son, and warned him that if he did
not and it v as found out on him
that he knew of this rascality, and
ns Governor took no acion, he
would be defeated in his race for
The Senator thought 'John' drs
played very little kuowledge of hu
man nature, "but he is young yet,"
the Senator added, "and has plenty
of time to learn. I don't think the
people really think that John is
guilty of these charges that have
been made against lum-except
t ?ose whose minds are full of pre
judice. As to the bond matter
jJohn' did nothing more than any
other lawyer would have done
accept a fee for his services."
