Better Than Potatoes.
We are to have, it seems, a
substitute for potato in the Chinese
artichoke recently introduced from
Japan. Accordiug to the Philadel
phia Record, it is "fully equal to
the potato as food and yields twice
as many bushels per acre. It grows
to the height of about twelve in
ches, the tubers buing formed like
four or five round radishes grow
ing together. The tubers are
I more nitrogenous than the potato ;
they require no peeting, as the
skin is very thin and they also
keep well in winter. It is said that
a single plant has been known to
produce 200 tubera and the crop
yields 500 bushels per acre." Add
to this that the tubers can be
cooked in as many ways as the

A South Carolinian Analyzes His
Editor Augusta Chronicle : Now,
since the somks of battle has

bitterness has ceased to exist
between the warring political
factions in this State, and since
both reformers and conservatives
seem to have met on the common
ground of "peace and unity," and
are now striving together for the
betterment of the Commonwealth,
it seems meet to recount the deeds
of our great leader, B. R. Tillman,
and to give to him a just tribute
of praise. "Honer to whom honor
is due," and justice even to au
enemy, cannot be objected to by
any honest, fair-mined, intelligent

Catiline had arisen." Tillman had
told the truth, and had
not been too seleet in the use of
his words. He called as pade a
spade a thief a thief, anda traitor
traitar., Bnt in so doing he mortal
ly offended the dignity of the Sen
ate, and no epithet was too opprobri
ous to be applied to the now fam
ous Carolinian. His enemies de
clared that it was one of his old
campaign speeches, which he had
delivered on the hustings in South
Carolina, and which was rehashed
for the occasion, Wasnot that the
very thing that he should have
done? It too often happens that
the men whom the people have
elected to Congress say one thing to
?heir constituents and quite a dif
ferent thing when they get to
Washington. But Tillman was
too honest to deceive his people.
What he told them, he told the
country and the world, and ou ac
count of his honesty, his sincerity
and his integrity, his memory will
live forever in their grateful
We are told that Senator Till
man made the mistake of his life
at Chicago, and not one voice has
been lifted in his defense. Nearly
every newspaper declared that he
had missed the chance of a life
time, and that he did not measure
up to the occasion." It will be
remembered that a majority of
ihe notional Democratic executive
committee were gold standard men.
lt will be remembered that
Whitney and Hill, gold standard
men from New York, were mem
bers of that committee. It was
left to them to say who should be
admitted to the galleries, and it
is a well known fact that the j[gal
leries were packed with gold
standard sympathizers. Hill, a
gold mau from New York, was
applauded: Tillman, a silver man
from South Carol iana was
hissed. Allow me to say, with
all possible emphasis, that if Till
man had ''measured up" to any
such occasion as that, he would
not have represented South Oaro
lina. We did not send him to
Chicago to placate a gold standard
audience ; we sent him there to re
present a free silver constituency.
Tillman was regarded as the
great tribune of the common peo
pie, as the "new Catiline" that
had arisen to shake the founda
tions of the republic. When he
he failed to get the nomination
for President, the New York World
sent up a shout of joy, and de
clared that, if the republic was to
be detroyed, it was certain that
Tillman would'notlead the hosts
of disintegration. This shows that
the moneyed aristocracy of the
country regarded Tillman as th^e
man they had to destroy. If he
should be elected President, they
know that their cause would be
lost, and they preferred to to take
the chances with some other man.
it was but natural that the money
power should attempt to destroy
the great leader thit South Caro
lina sent to the front in the hour
or the nation's need, and in the
hour of the natiou'e peril.
Senator Tillman has been
severely criticised for saying in
the Chicago convention taat he
was from "the home of secession."
I have read that speech, and I am
prepared to say. that, if he had
been permitted to finish the sen
tence, and had not been inteiupted
by hisses, he would have made a
declaration that even his enemies
would have applauded. I am sat
isfied that he intended to say
that secession is a thing of thu
past, and that South Carolina is
in the Union to stay. Orit might
have beon his purpose to declare
that the fact that his State
seceded shoud not destroy her pre
stige or militaie against him. But
the galleries which were packed
by Whitney and Hill, did not al
low him to express himself as he
desired, and the country has been
misled as to what he intended to
But suppose that Senator Till
man did declare that he was from
"the home of seccession?"
Waa it a crime to secede?
Are South Carolinians ashamed
of the part they took in the m^pt
gigantic struggle the world ever
saw? I for one will never blush
because our fathers fought for
their liberties, for their altars and
their fires, and won fame and re
nown on a thousand fields of glory
under the red battle flag of the
Some of Senator Tillman's
critics are fond of saying',that he
should not have referred to the is
! sue as a sectional one. It will no
I doubt gratify them to be told that
he did not say that the issue was
sectional in a geographical sense.
What he did say was that it was
an issue between different sections
of the people-between the rich
and the poor. But when we re
member that nearly all the rich
live in one section, and nearly alii
the poor in another section, il;
looks very much as if geography
had something to do with it after
all ; and if Senator Tillman had
the issue to be sectional, he would
have told nearly the exact truth.
Instead of South Carolina having
a big load to carry in Senator Till

When the South Carolinian
stepped on the platform at Chi
cago, his enemies say that he
"looked like the incarnation of
ihe mob." That is the highest
compliment that could possibly
be paid any man who is born of
woman. It might have been said
of Tillman when he stood facing
his enemies ot Chicago, like the
spirit of battle, immovable and
defiant, thet he was "the likeness
of one stepped from the tragic
stage;" but knowing the man as

liDEATH OF JUDGE BACON.
i Long and Distinguished Life
J at an End.
Munabia Register, Feb. 20.
After an illness of some dura
tion, Judge Juhn E. Baoon died at
the Columbia Hospital yesterday
morning at 7 o'clock. Dr. Talley,
who attended Judge Bacon, said
tho judge had for some time been
sufiering from kidney trouble and
was removed from his home to the
hospital for treatment. The re
mains will probably be taken to
Edgefield to-day for in terme nt, but
ai what hour the funeral
traiuwill leave, could not be as
certained lagt night.
Judge John E.. Bacon was 70
years of age. He was the son of
John Bacon, Esq., who married a
Miss Bacon, daughter of Mr. Ed
mund Bacon, a distinguished ora
tor and lawyer of his day.
After the death of Judge Bacon's
father, hie mother married the late
Rev. Mr. Wigfall, an Episcopal
clergyman of Edgefield. She still
survives him, at a very advanced
age, and now resides with her son,
Mr. James T. Bacon, editor of the
Edgefield Chronicle, the only jiv

Judge Bacon was married twice.
His first wife was Miss Pawnee
Butler, elde8C daughter of the late
Gov. P. M. Butler, who was killed
at the head of his regiment at
Cherebusco, in Mexico. His sec
ond wife, who survives him, was
M?BS Rebecca Pickens, daughter
of the late Governor Pickens, the
first war governor of South Caro
Governor Pickens was appoint
ed by President Buchanan minis
ter to Bussia in 1857, and Judge
Bacon was secretary of legation at
St. Petersburg under Minister
Pickens. It was at the Russian
capital that he married his second
In 1866 Judge Bacon was elect
ed to the bench of Edgefield Coun
ty. This offico he held until it
was abolished during the Radical
regime in 1868. After this he was
for many years the law partner of
the late ex-Chancellor Carroll.
Their office was at Edgefield Court
House, where they enjoyed a large
and lucrative practice.
Just prior to the war, Mr. Carroll
removed to Columbia, and the
partnership was disaolved. After
the war Judge Bacon formed a
partnership with Gen. M. C. But
ler under the firm name of Butler
& Bacon. Later on Judge Bacon
removed from Edgefield to Colum
bia, and became associated in the
practice of his profession with
Col. William Wallace, the present
postmaster, and the late Mr. A. C.
Moore, the firm name reading
Wallace, Bacon & Moore.

During the severe storm in De

and received a severe injury, and
from that time on he gradually

He leaves two sons, the eldest
now living in Edgefield and the
other in New York.

men and a diplomatist of a fa
