timo I am in tho borders of the Stato
to find myself surrounded by a dozen
Winchesters. Those peoplo never
como at a man single handed. Still
South Carolina is my homo and I
shall continue to resido there. I
havo just spent two months within
my congressional district, preparing
evidence for my contest against Rep
resentative Latimor, and I met with
no physical violence. Shortly after
I went to my h ?mo near Abbeville
court house thero was a meeting of
citizens held and resolutions passed
calling upon mo to leave tho State.
A eommittco waited upon mo and
presented them, but I paid no atten
tion to tho resolutions. I continued to
remain thero for two weeks after
ward, in fact until I had secured
practically all the testimony for my
contest, and I shall certainly push
tho matter beforo tho house commit
tee. None of our family have yet
returned to Phoenix or McCormick,
but will do so shortly and face all tho
opposition and Winchesters which
may be brought before them. They
will not attempt' to cause trouble,
but will seek to avoid it. My father,
brother, wife and children, aro now
in Charleston. My brother, who was
shot four times, is an invalid for life,
but ho proposes to live out the rest
of his life in South Carolina. I
would not bo surprised to seo tho
disturbances taking place, from time
to time, until Congress, ns I believe
it will do, cuts down tho representa
tion of South Carolina to its actual
voting population. Then she will
have three instead of seven congress
men. That will open the eyes of
the people. However, so far as I ara
concerned, I would prefer to have
the present representation continuo
with suffrage for all. I shall return
to South Carolina after the present
session of Congress closes."

WASHINGTON, March Ii.-"I am not
saying this in a fit of bad temper or
in pique, or for tho reason that I
think my opponents could defeat me,
but after duo deliberation J have
made up my mind not to bo a candi
date ngain for the leadership of my
party in Congress, either when it is
in the minority or majority."
This was tho calm and dispassion
ate statement mudo to me shortly
after noon to-day by Representative
?loo Hailey, of Texas.
Continuing, ho said :
"I presume you got III?H news first
from Bankhead, of Alabama."
"1 did," I said.
"I thought so. There was no rea
son why ho BhO'ilJ not give it out. I
called on him this morning and
pledged him my support for the mi
nority nomination of tho next Con
gress, I would not have this empty
position I hold again, or accept;, the
leadership of my party when* forty
odd of its members declino to uphold
tho constitution after they have
sworn so to do. It is the first time
tho Democrats have voted in such a
way. I know that it will be said
that my refusal to again aspiro to
load my party in the lower house of
Congress will be attributed to a fit of
temper. I havo had twenty-four
hours to think over it, and my mind
is made up-irrevocably made up."
I saw Mr. Bankhead later. Ho
corroborated what Mr. Hailey had
said and continued :
"When Mr. Hailey told mo he
would not stand for the leadership of
his party in Congress ngain and of
fered mo his support, I could not
fully grasp his meaning. I told him
that he should not make up bia mind
so suddenly. He told me he had <le
tormed that if the Democrats would
not follow him in this matter he
would not try to lend them ngain,
but to fight to uphold thc constitu
tion aa an individual. I announced
my candidacy for tho speakers!)!]
nomination some titno ago, and will
now make my candidacy active"

Secretary Wilson on the South.
Hon. James Wilson, tho Scorotary
of Agrioulturo, in disoussing quito
recently tho produotivo possibilities
of tho South, and tho problem of
nogro labor, made tho following ob?
"Tho pressing question is, what is
the laborer down South who has been
growing cotton and lins not been get
ting enough for his product, to do in
tho futuro to onablo him to live com
fortably, not to speak of tho improve
ment in his condition, cduoation and
"Tho great cotton growing indus
try of tho South is not up-to-date
Its nitrogen contonts is greater than
that of any grain ; it is richor in ni
trogencous matter than peas or boans,
richer than gluten, meal or oil cake
"Thc Northern feeders and Euro
pean feeders havo been using tho bi
products of tho cotton liolds with
great advantago to them, while the
loss of its fertilizing qualities to tho
South has been very groat.
"The South has moro marked ad
vantages over tho North with rogard
to productions. It has moro heat
and moisture-two groat factors of
production ; and if thc- cotton grower
is to diversify his crops, ho must uso
those natural advantages.
"The dairy cow and tho mutton
sheep would succeed admirably in
the South, but something for them
to eat must bo provided first.
"Thc winters in tho South are
mild ; grasses and grains can bo
sown in thc fall, and will grow abun
dantly through tho winter, upon
which tho dairy cow and mutton
sheep may thrivo and produce.
"Tho South can prepare spring
lambs much earlier than tho North
can. Tho Southern landownei
understands horne raising. Thero it
always a greater demand for saddle
horses than is supplied. The world
wants carriage and draft horses aw:

"There ?B a diversity of opinion ii

you meet will say they have tho bes

Tho Dem?crata gained cvory im
portant point for which thoy con
tended in thc framing of tho army
bill, and the mensuro an amended by
them is for m ire satisfactory than it
was in its original form. The best
of all tho at? endments of tho mea
suro is that offered by Senator Gor
man, which was adopted after a
sharp debate It provides for a re
duction of thc army on July 1, 1901,
to tho number allowed by law on
March 31, 1898.
This removes thc apprehension
that the country would bc committed
to a largo standing army.
Tho bill as it passed tho Senate
provides for a regular army of 38,
000 officers and mon, which may be
increased in the discretion of tho
Presidont to not exceeding 05,000
enlisted men, and an additional vol
unteer force of 35,000 "to moot tho
present exigencies of thc military
Ber vice." Tho th. co-battalion and
squadron organization is providod
for in tho infantry and cavalry regi
ments, and tho artillery regiments
are to consist of fourteen battorics
eaoh, two of which may bc organ
ized as field artillery. Tho maximum
strength in onlistcd men of a com
pany of infantry will bo sixty-five;
of a troop of cavalry, sixty-five ; of a
battery of artillery, eighty. The
number of regimental organizations
will remain as at present-twenty
five regiments of infantry, ten of
oavalry and seven of artillery. With
this organization tho theoretical
maximum of enlisted mon would be
35,140, with nearly 3,000 ofllcors in
tho lino and staff departments.
Thero is now sol ving under tho
Federal flag a regular army nearly
equal in numerical strength to tbo
force of 05,000 men which tho Presi
dent may recruit under tho torms of
thin army reorganization bill, and in
nci'iition there aro about 50,000 vol
unteer troops-tho lattor being 10,
500 strong in tho Philippines. In
Cuba thero aro at thc present timo
33,000 volunteers, tho regular army
on that island being represented by
about 12,500 troops. Thero aro
12,700 regulars in tho Philippines,
and 8,000 moro aro now on tho way
to Manilla in five transport ships.
It is bolioved that 5,000 troops
will bo suflioicnt for Porto Rico and
Hawaii, as thero are no signs of trou
ble in either of those now posses
Tho army bill makes no matorial
alteration in tho fighting strength or
territorial disposition of tho forces
already in tho field.
