HIS NOTEWORTHY UTTERANCES
Distinguished Jurist, ia an Address
in, the Southern Manufacturers'
. Club, at Charlotte, N. C., Declares
That ?he Time Has Come When
Southern Democrats Should he Rec
ognized, and They Themselves
Should no Longer Hesitate to Ac
cept the Honors for the Work Well
Charlotte, N. C., Special.-One of
th? niostsigiii/icanl ul. te va noes that
has been m.. '.e in thc South in many
a day was delivered herc Friday night
by Judge Alton B. Parker, thc nat
ional leader of the Democratic party,
when he declared that thc next Dem
ocratic nominee for th? presidency of
the United States should come from
the South.. He argued that the sec
tion of the. country that furnished
the votes'should also furnish the head
In* thc course of his well prepared
speech...Jiidge Parker used thc follow
ing interesting language :.'
While this conscientious devotion
to''an idea has. commended itself to
thc D?modais of the whole country
and basilius made and kept the party
rational, during recent years tlie* peo
ple of the South, without variable
ness or shadow of turning) have been
its mainstay. Shirking uh. responsibi
lity, seeking llb; Autionel rewards-, pro
moting no special interest* tt? move
ments, they have thither been trucu
lent in victory nor discouraged in de
feat. Going on in their way, regulat
ing their own affairs, without hope of
commanding subsidy, paying cheer
fully tb ?ftrry out policies in which
they could huveno part, they have so
impressed themselves upon their time
that thc one special problem coming
to them from the past has been solv
ed in such-a way I hat thc whole coun
try has not only been forced to ap
prove and applaud but to imitate as
Ihc only way to deal with it.
But thc lime has conic when new
duties and responsibilities must be
undertaken, by thc Democrats ?if the
South, ll is moro than two score
rears since- thc war closed .and your
people lind, themselves upon the
threshold:ot what promises to be the
nost remarkable business develop
ment-the world has ever known within
he same time aud HptWe;. Some of^
^our men havLVgone forth to command

:our iifi?>pl?i fts a Wh'c'ib, have so rcnin
aih'cu ?ii'd increased'their "own .posi
ion and the dominance, of the coun
ty in one of the greatest products of
he soilas?.to make them thc wonder
md the admiration of thc world.
"Ju spite of youl* devotion .tu prin
iplc'iUid Consistency, iii the face of a
lumerical importance that was pre
londerant, in polities only have you
tepped aside. From the earliest days
ince self-government was restored
ou have sent your best men into pub
ic life. They have heed' at oilce mod

d its hospitable doors to admit youi

The occasion was also graced by the
resencc of Governor Glenn of North

outh Carolina, each of whom made
ilks that were highly interesting to

Tillman Reports Bate Bill.
The Sonnte continued consideration
of the railroad question by listening
to the reading of a report on the
House bill by Mr. Tillman and to a
speech on that measure by Mr. Nel
Mr. Tillman's report was read at
rhe request of Mr. Aldrich, who said
that he was curious to hear thc opin
ion of the South Carolina-Senator.
Brief attention was given to thc
message of the President transmitting
the letter to the Secretary of War
relative t9 the recent Moro battle.
Mr. Bacon spoke of the killing of the
Moros as "slaughter" and Mr. Lodge
deprecated criticism until the fads

The report of Mr. Tillman embodied
the first clear and concise statement
of the diff?rences concerning court re
view feature* aod other proposed
vmendmenls that Ji?d filad? ? ??an?
nous report from the committee" im
Without hesitancy, thc Senator de
dared it to be his belief that the bill
should bc amended, but ihat amend
ments should not be of a character to
nipair or prevent thc accomplishment
if the objects of thc leg??lflllou, which
ire set forth best, he says, in the
President's message to Congress. He
uuphasized the need of regarding thc
measure as non-partisian, hut predict
ed that the issue created will be para
mount in the next presidential elec
Mr. Tillman prefaced his report by
speaking of the peculiar circumstan
ces ruling the camin?ttce's actions on
thc House bill, which made it an em
barrassing task to submit views that
would be concurred in by the com
mittee as a whole.
AN UNPRECEDENTED, SITUA
ty of its membei^heur??^va'sTjron
into the Senate in a form "not entirely
satisfactory to more than two mern*.
"This lack of harmony among tire
supporters ?? the bill-it would be
.peaking with more accuracy' to say
he supporters of thc policy involved
n thc bill-brings about the anonial
>us situation in which a member of
bc minority party in Congress is put
n charge In the Senate of proposed
egislation Which is generally regarded
hroughout the country as thc cherish
ed scheme of the President; with
vhose general policy and principles
hat member is not; in accord. Al the
ame time thc bill is designated lo
any into effect his own long
herished convictions and the thrice*
eiterated demands of the party to
rliicli he belongs.'
Emphasizing the elaitn that this
ondition ii without precedent in leg
?lative history, Mr. Tillman says it
rings into prominence thc fact that
be legislation ie non-partisan and is
0 reeognizezd as a result of the un
nimous support given it by the mi
ority in the House and the few op
osing-only seven-in that entire
'UBLIC DEMAND PASSIONATE.
There would follow a "cyclone of
assionnto resentment," said Mr. Till
lau, in predicting what would be the
?suit of failure on the part of Ccn
ress to meet thc widespread demand
>r railroad rate legislation. He de
bared that "woe will be the bat
ist" of any member of the Senate
House whose work in formulating
bill to regulate railroads lacks eara
?tness or honesty of purpose and who
mil seek lo belittle the question or
ill the bill by subterfuge and dficep
ou. The constitution gives to Con
fess the power to regulate the rail
?ads, he contended and there are
any wrongs to right.
The bill as it comes from thc House,
x. Tillman characterized as loosely
orded and capable of different in
"Massacre of Mt. Dajo."
