W. A. COURTENAY, LL. D.
A Prominent South Carolinian Made a Doctor ol
Laws hy thc University ol Nashville.
Tho University of Nashville, at its re
cent commencement, conferred tho hon
orary dogl'00 of Doctor of Laws upon
tho Hon. Wm. Ashmcad Courtenay, of
South Carolina. The terms in which
thia distinction was announced by the
chancellor added to its value. Ile said
that tho institution honored itself in re
cognizing tho long service of Mr. Courte
nay as "philanthropist, patriot and pa
tron of letters."
Tho professor of the I'niveisity who
Comm un lent CR the action of the board of
trustees lo Mr. Courtenay suggests the
unanimity and enthusiasm which at
tended and still attends the conferring of
this honor when he writes: ' Thc col
lege, individually and collectively, scuds
greetings, along with wishes that many
years, abounding in life's best prosperity,
shall be your portion."
Capt. Courtenay is to be congratulated
Oil Ilia election among tho "immortals."
Many who admire Ililli have been in
straits whether to call him "Captain" or
"Mayor" in familiar salutation. Now
their trouble will have an easy relict.
Thoy may greet him now as Doctor
Courtenay.-Charleston News ami Cou
l ier, J une 11.
Doctor Courtenay is called "President"
throughout thc Piedmont, for he is
widely known as thu enterprising Presi
dent of Tho Courtenay .Manufacturing
Company, of Newry, OcoilCO county.
South Carolina, one of thc most success
ful colton mills in the State. By thc
way, where is there nnol her mill president
who is a "LL. I),?" College presidents
frequently have such honors to sit lightly
upon their shoulders because they move
in a charmed circle, where thc bestowal
proceeds upon the principle of "tickle
mc and I tickle you"-but mill presi
dents never. Their thoughts necessarily
run so much upon figuring out the ditter
OUtial in cotton quotations, that few thorn
are who heed the gentle voices (if the
muses, who foster a high standard of
literal y excellence as w eil ns ul linancc
and statecraft. This is another evidence
of the many-sided attainments ol' OcO*
nco's pioneer mill president. "Captain"
on the tented held, "Mayor" ol' Carolina's
metropolis, "President." ot'a great manu
facturing plant, and crowning all as
"Doctor" in thc world ol' letters. Where
is his home ? At Innisfallen, fanned
by tho gentle mountain breezes of thu
nee, and Ocoiico is honored thereby.

Tho Suygcbiion Touches? a Responsivo
Editor? Cour.iKit: I BOO Itt your last
?BSUO a proposition to build a homo for
thu Coufodorato soldiers In Oconco
County, ?is well at Itt all tho counties. I
think this is tho most feasible and hu
mano plan that bas yot baou put for
ward to aid our noble and well deserv
ing old soldiers in their last days, lt
would he far bettor than a homo by tho
State, as it would enable tho soldiors of
each county to spend their last days
among their relatives, friends and ac
quaintances. It would bo a comfort to
au old soldier, oven in ono of theso
county homos to know that his last days
were being spent whore ho was born and
raised; among thoso whom ho holds
j nearest and dearest. And in caso of a
contagious or malignant disoaso break
ing out lu tho State it would bo oasior to
This plan to take caro of thoso old
citizen soldiors should moot with tho ap
proval of all. lt would OOSt no ono any
thing hardly, and at tho same timo it
would insure our deserving old soldiers
a homo of their own during their ro
main ing years.
Now, as one who had no hand In tho
war, which cost those old soldiors tho
best days of their lives, and in many
cases the loss of hoalth and bodily
limbs, I am constrained to say if wo
ever intomi to do anything for thom, let
us do il while they live. So I, out of roy
li tintt.'d lo of this world's goods, ant
willing to , vo live or ten dollars to as
sist in building a home in Oconco after
thc plan outlined.
Now, to make all tho sacrifices and in
cur all the suffering incident to war as
did thc Confederate soldier, ought to
give him a place in t ho momory and affec
tions of his contd ry mon, so that in his last
days he would be provided with at least
a home and the common necessaries of
lifo. Hut, alas! for tho obi soldier. Wo
meet him every day bowed down with
care and want and seo his brow over
shadowed with the sil very frost? of many
winters, plodding his way wearily along,
hoping that the into will come when
there will he something better in store
for hint. So, to tho people of Oconco,
lol us get together and do as has boen
suggested: lluy a good farm somewhere
in tho county and dot it with comforta
ble cottages and give it to all tho old
soldiers and their widows, who have no
land, as a home free of rent tho balance
of their lives, and winni the last one has
passed away let Hie property revert to
the donors or their heirs. Hy this plan
no one will lose anything and those old
fellows who went through tho liery or
deal from IS01 to ISOTi will have tho con
solation of knowing that their devotion
to country has been appreciated, and
that their hopes anil expectations for
better things have not ticen in vain.
Again, you gentlemen who are asking
the old soldiers to help elect you to
ellice, will you not holy in carrying to
success this enterprise, so that history
may never record the sa?! and disgrace
ful fact that ( harnee county let her sol
diers die in want, or in thc poor house.
May the soldier's name
Koro vor bo a part of our country's fame,
And over bis grave lie planted

Of sweet and endearing momorio.

WASHINGTON, .lune 7.-Representative
Livingston, of Georgia, the ranking mi
nority of the House Conimittoo on Ap- 1
proprintions, made tho following state- '
mont to-day as to tho appropriations '
mado by the first session of tho 50th '
Congress, from the standpoint of the
"Notwithstanding the enormous ap
propriations for limn on account of tho
Spanish-Cuban war tho army and navy 1
appropriations for this session aro $r>0,- '
000,000 in excess of those for the last 1
session, riic statement I submit shows !
also that in every department of tho '
Qo vor mn ont, beginning with tho agri- '
cultural and ending with tho permanent '
appropriations, wo havo increased at
this session tho amounts authorized at
tho last session. And when to tho ag- '
gregate we add tho amounts that should 1
have been appropriated at this session, 1
but which have been deferred, for no '
good reason, or at least for reasons that '
need no explanation on tho part of those
in control-amounts whioh must be ap
propriated at tho second session of this
Congress, such ns that necessary lo com
plote tho Nicaragua Canal, (the bill hav
ing passed the House, carrying authori
zation of an expenditure of $111,000,*
nun,) ?md also that usually appropriated
for rivers and harbors, $10,000,000; and
for public buildings and grounds, $.'),000,*
OOO, and four outstanding claims, esti
mated at $10,000,000-if, I say, we add
snti.uikl.tiiio to tho sum stated in the
tallie, $700,720,170, wo would have a
grand total of $870,720,470 for this ses
sion alone. And thus the total shown in
the exhibit is not quito complote or fair,
considering that such large amounts
that must IK; met are withhold for the
next session. I submit that lo bo fair
we should let cindi fiscal year lake can;
Of all necessary appropriations, and not
unload Ibis year oil thc fiscal year 1002
that should bo provided for and included
in the fiscal year 1001. I call attention
also to thc constant and general increase
in the appropriations for pensions ami
likewise lo tho legislativo, executive and
judicial appropriations. 'these items
could not have been all'ectcd to any
great extent by tho .Spanish-Cuban war.
lt shows, indeed, an increase, as Indore
slated, all along the line, despite tho fact
thal the committee on public buildings
and grounds have hold back all matters
before thom and the committee Oil rivers
and harbors all mailers before I hem,
with two or three exceptions, and nil ac
counts and claims have been practically
barred from consideration al thin ses
Mr. Livingston then gives a large table
showing the appropriations for the years
1807 to 1001, inclusive, and continues:
"lt should he borne in mind that in tho
case of (he above noted appropriations
for the navy, the authorization of (be
eight new battleships involves an ulti
mate expenditure for construction, ar
mor and armament of something like
$50,000,000, not one dollar of w hich is
now appropriated for and does not figure
in the navy item, bill must be met in
ful ure years. Tho dominant party at
tempted to commit this Congress at this
session, and doubtless will renew their
efforts at tho coming session to commit
tho Covcriinioill te what is known as tho
ship subsidy scheme, WIdell involves tho
sum of $120,000,000 to he expended
throughout a period of years."

lhere, whether ho must supplement it
with steam powoi."
Senator ('lay strongly advocated tho ? ]<
incl ease in the appropriation as some
thing justly duo the South. Ho stated
that tho appropriation had gradually in
creased from $?,(XX) for this purpose to
? 10,000, lo $40,000 and then to $50,000,
iud now $100,000 was recommended hy
tho Senate Appropriations Committee
lt was hero proposed to increase this
imount to $2.r>0,000. He did not know,
lie said, of any appropriation that had
boon of moro relativo benefit to tho peo
ple of tboStatoof Georgia. Ho cited a
BOBO where capitalists refused to estab
lish their plant bocauso tho Govornmont
could not furnish data showing tho ca
pacity of a stream whoso power they
intended to utilizo. Since then appro
priations had boon applied, the desired
data furnished by thc Geological Survey,
Lhc power of tho stream developed, and
over a million dollars invested by these
"In my opinion," concluded Senator
Clay, "this appropriation is of vast im
portance. So far as my Stato is con
cerned, wc realize that when wc develop
our water powor and utilizo our raw
material, we give employment lo our
idle labor and build up tho South."
After considerable debato along these
lines Senator Dlltlor's amendment pre
vailed and $260,000 was inserted. In tho
House, the friends of the mcasuro wcro
not so well organized and tho amount
was cut down to tho$100,000. Congress
men who favored tho measure, however,
took occasion to speak strongly in bo
half of moro liberal appropriations in
tho near future, and stated distinctly
that they would ho demanded. Kopro
son tali ve Livingston, of Goorgia, do
dared the i m port SHOO to thc whole pee
pie of tho work of tho Geological Sur
vey, and emphasized its groat value to
mining interests, as well as in mailers
nf stream measurements, prevention of
stream polution, irrigation, drainage,
and general waler supply, and stated
thal thc South wa*; only in the begin
ning of her dovolopmont.
"In my section of tho country," lu
said, "wo are Hooded with lett ?rs from
every quarter of the Inion inquiring
?ibout water powor, and many relate to
the question of the supply for mining in
the mineral regions."
Mr. Livingston hoped, he said, that in
tho futuro Congress would deal more
liberally with this important question
that $100,000 was a mm e pit tania; when
it had to ho spread over tho whoh
United Stales, ami thal los Siaie nloilC
dionhl have $800,000 or $000,000 to prop
arly oom plo to tho work. Ho proposod,
lie said, from this timo oe lo work for
better recognition for tho South ?it thc
bands of Congress along this important
line, and bc served notice upon his col
leagues that larger appropriations for
Lids work must bo forthcoming, and
.bat tho sooner they were made the hol
er for the pcoplo of the country.
Tho work of the stream measure
ments hy tho United States Geological
Survey is an important clement in build
ing np tho manufacturing industries of
Ibo South, more especially since it has
been found practicable hy electrical
transmission to concentrate tho power
furnished by small streams, at a central
point suitable for a factory site. Capi
tal, however, is slow to venturo until it
knows from indisputable nut liol i ly what
lie capacities of strenms are, ?iud that
they are not liable to run dry or low at the
tri tics! lime when power may bo mosl
ii-eded. In this way the stream meas
iromonts of the Govornmont, covering
i period of years, ?ire extremely vaina
ile, furnishing an accurate basis upon
ivhloh to estimate power. An appro
.nation of $20,0(10 was secured early in
he session for tho carrying on of this
ivork up to .Inly 1st, and just prior to
lu- adjournment of Congross nu addi
ional appropriation of $100,000 was ob
tained, very largely through tho vigor
