The Monea Path Citizen Advises Sonator Till
man to Resign or Shut Up.
I Groonvillo Nows. J
Please allow mo spaoo in tho columns
of your paper to express somo of my
viows on tho recout Sonatorial resigna
tions. Sonators Tillman aud McLauriu
vory foolishly rosignod at Gaffnoy, S. C.
Tho Govoruor wisoly docliuod to accopt
thoir resignal ?olin. t
Sonator Tillman, in order to play tho
rolo of boss and dictator, intruded his
prosonco ou tho mooting nt Gaffnoy.
Tho boys, liko myself, aro tired of boss
ism.
Tillman, hoing invitod, offered tho
bluff of resigning; McLauriu in tho
midst of debato and excited ns ho redly
wa?, called Tillman's bluff.
Now, Mr. Editor, if Tillman is roally
in earnest and thinks McLauriu has sold
out to tho Ropublioau party and wants
to provont tho doar pooplo from becom
ing contaminated by Mel .aurie's Repub
lican doctrines, lot him resign immedi
ately and ask tho Govoruor to appoint
his successor. Thou bo will bo in posi
tion to rightfully ontor tho campaign,
not as a meddler or dictator, butas a real
patriot, willing to Baori?oe dollars and
couts to savo tho pcoplo.
If McLauriu should insist on resigning
thoro would bo nothing gained; bo will
vory soon bo compelled to answer boforo
tho pooplo for bis actions ns their ser
vant, as ho is now doing, and which Till
man objects to him doing.
Lot Ti'.man resign and havo bis suc
cessor ? ppoiutod immediately, enter the
raco ns au honorable, fair-minded lighter,
or stop his bushwhacking in tho cam
paign.
Tho pooplo aro intelligent, patriotic
and capable of divining for themselves as
to what they want without Tillman's in
terfering or meddling as between the
candidates for McLanrin's place. Lei
overy man in the raco toto his own skil
let. If Tillman wants to dabble in the
raco let bim resign and enter or stay at
homo and shut his mouth. Tho people
of .South ('arolina aro capable of decid
ing who they want for United States

ACCIDENTALLY KILLED IN JACKSONVILLE.
Mr. James McAlis> r Meets Death Attempting
to Prc.ont a Suicide.
Tho remains of Mr. James McAlister,
w ho was accidentally killed at Jackson
ville, Fla., last Wednesday ? hilo attempt
ing to prevent Mrs. T. II. West from
committing suicide, were taken to
Charleston and interred at SI Lawrence
cometery. The pall-hearers were: Capt
James F. Redding, Col. J. E, llagood.
Col. James Armstrong, Messrs. William
K. Rrolwn, Albeit II. Mowry, Sr., Ed
ward Connor, J. 1). Cnppolman, Simon
Fogarty and H. F. White.
TIIK COHONlilt's VKUpIOT,
The inquest over tho remains of Mr.
McAlister was held Thursday afternoon,
and a verdict was rendel ed t hat the de
ceased came to his death through the
accidental dischargo of a pistol, which
bo bad pulled out of the hands of Mrs.
T. II. West, who was attempting to lull
herself. Mrs. West was arrested on the
afternoon of the killing, but was liber
ated when tho tragedy was known to
have been an accident. It appears that
Mrs. West was Buffering with melancholia.
She was in bad health, and thc recent
taking of an adopted child from her
aggravated her condition. She attempted
suicide on the morning of the tragedy,
but her attempt was frustrated. In the
afternoon she entered Mr. McAlistor's
o thee, making a sudden rush for a pistol
which lay on his desk. Mr. McAlister
was writing at the time to his children.
Mrs. West seized tho pistol with tho re
mark that she would at last succeed in
suiciding. She is a frail, delicate little
woman, one of whose hands is paralyzed,
and Mr. McAlister had no trouble in
wrenching the pistol from her hands.
As ho pulled the pistol from ber it
struck the ledge of his desk at his side
and exploded, causing almost instant
death.

TILLMAN AND MCSWEENEY.
The Senator and the Governor Excliango
Warm Compliments.
Senator Tillman, on Tuesday, tele
graphed to Qovernor MoSweeuey to
know "pffloially" whether Sonator Mo
tannin bad withdrawn his resignation.
Governor MoSweonoy telegraphed that
ito understood Sonator MoLouriu's letter
to bo a withdrawal. Sonator Tillman
then wrote another abusive lotter about
Sonator MoLaurin. lu tho meantime
tho Qo vor nor had already repliod to the
warm lottor ho had previously rocolvod
from Tillman. Tho two lotter? passod
iu tho mails. Thoy aro as follows:
TILLMAN TO M'SWKKNKY.
Dear Sir: 1 am in receipt of your tolo- i
gram in which you say, "I understand
Senator McLaurin's lottor to bo a with
drawal of his resignation," and I havo
that worthy's communication in which
bo graciously consents at your roquost,
"to hold on to his commission ns United
States Sonator and continuo to sorvo tho i
Stato ns ho bas dono in tho past, to tho
best of his ability."
This loaves mo ono of three alterna
tives. To appeal to tho D?mocratie
Kxecut i ve Committee to take tho matter '
up aud determino what tho boat interest,
of tho party requires to be dono, to
appeal to tho Senate itself to determino ?
tho question na to whether a resignation ?
from that body, to take off cot at some
futuro timo, is biuding, or withdraw my
own resignation. Thoro aro no proco- ,
dents on this subject, because in tho 125
years of our national lifo, with moro
than 200 resignations from tho Sonato,
no' Senator lias hitherto boon willing to
occupy tho despicablo attitude uow
assumed by Sonator McLaurin and forcod
on mo. 1 am certain of ono thing: that ]
tho Kxooutivo of a Stato has no authority 1
to declino a resignation that has boon <
tendered, mid I am equally certain that 1
had your excellency confined your action j
within legal bounds that your appointees .
would bo seated in tho Sonato whon that I
body meets in Dccombor, and hold their (
seats until tho Legislature should act in ?
January. My chief regret is that I am 1
forced by your action to engage iu what I
the outside world wdll consider a gamo 1
of opora bouffe, by withdrawing my own i
resignation after Senator McLaurin's t
undignified and puerile action ; but the 1
purpose for which it was tendered baa
boon thwarted by Sonator McLaurin's
precipitous accoptauco of oxecutivo
advice. Hob Acres lias boon outdone
for once. As 1 havo already said I had
no motivo or purpose in resigning oxcopi
to force McLaurin's, and there is nothing
for mo to do but accept tho situation aud
withdraw my own resignation, if it bo
lawful to do so. Yours respectfully,
13. lt. Tillman.
M'SWBKNBY TO TILLMAN.
Sir: *Your letter of Juno lat baa boon
received. I have carofully noted its
contents, and tho most charitable viow 1
can take of it is that it was written in
tho heat of passion and without duo
consideration.
1 noto that you say that I have "trans
cended" my authority and that tho
Governor "cannot compol a member of
tho United States Sonato to hold II?B
commission and exercise tho functions
of that office if ho chooses to surrender
it," and that you "declino for tho
present to withdraw" your resignation.
Had you read carofully my lotter
addresssod to you and to Senator Mc
Laurin, you must havo seen that I did
did not express any dosiro to "compol a
member of thu United States to hold his
commission and exercise tho functions
of that oflico," if ho chooses to surrondor
it. My solo purposo in returning tho
resignations was to ask your gentlemen
to consider calmly and thoughtfully tho
consequences to tho pooplo of what I
judged to bo a hasty net, and I must
confess that 1 am somewhat surprised at
tho tone of your answer to my request.
1 consider tho course which I took in
this matter to bo for tho best interests
of the pcoplo of South Carolina, and I
am responsible to thom alono for my
action. And, furthermore, I Btill boliovo
that my course has mot tho approval of
a majority of tho citizens of tho Stato,
nor do I consider them "unthinking
citizen?," but mon who know and recog
nize as fully as any pooplo on earth tho
rights and duties and responsibilities of
citizenship, and do not need tho services
of any ono to toll them thoir duty.
You insinuated that I have been
"importuned" to "await tho conven
ience" of any pr?sent or would-bo aspi
rants who "aro not just ready for various
reasons to outer tho contest brought on
so unexpectedly," and that for this rea
son my action has taken tho direction
it ha?, is unworthy of a man holding tho
high commission which has hoon given
you hy tho pooplo of South Carolina,
and deserves notico in this connection.
However, 1 may say for your bonofit that
1 alono am responsible for my roply and
will givo account for tho courso I havo
taken to tho pcoplo who honored mo
and not to any ono individual.
In this matter I havo dono what I
thought best calculated to promote the
present prosperity and contentment of
the pcoplo of my Stato, and shall con
tinuo to do so regardless of what any
one man may say or think of my courso.
f did not think that a political campaign
this BUmmor could do any good. How
ever, had tho resignations been uncon
ditional and unrestricted, my action
might have boon otherwise.
With duo respect for your opinion, I
think I have as high "conception of tho
office of Senator and its powors" a? you
or any other citizen of this State, and
you must havo known that tho hriof
interview to which you refer meant that
1 would simply moot tho responsibility
and perform my duty under tho condi
tions,
If you still wish to 'osign your com
mission and will send to this offico an
unconditional resignation, 1 will exercise
the authority ..nil powor vosted in mo by
the people. Respectfully,
M. H. McSwoonoy.

>f pooplo in tho South that a man is not
i Democrat unless ho will go to Wash
ngton and quarrel with tho Republican
najority in Congress and act tho fool
?Onorally; but this isa mistaken idea.
V man is not obliged to bo a fo il to bo a

It has boon about 85 yoars since tho

tali of an averago lifo timo. Wo think
t's timo for'.us to stop calling each other

.hon Republicanism is not so very bad
ts wo board it was after all. Wo think
,ho country needs a littlo moro of it.
Tho Democratic party of tho Tillman
itripo was lu power a few yoars ago.
they had thoir Prosidont and a majority

If MoLaurin will start out with a pitch

MCLAURIN DENOUNCES TILLMAN.
Declares That Democracy of Bryan and Till
man lt Nothing but Socialism.
Bennettavllle, S. 0., June 8.-"The
trouble with Tillman is, to use a slang
expression, he has ?ot 'too big for his
trousers.' In adversity, and while he
! was striving toward the goal of his ambi
I tiona, he was a magnificent oharaoter
and a fighter of ahn oat irresistible foroe.
"There aro still many things about him
that are admirable, but prosperity has
spoiled him.
"What he now needs is for the people
of this State to take him across their
knoo, paddlo him good and hard and
thou toll him go about his own business.
If this were dono, it would teach Tillman
that ho does not own this Stato and
carry it about in his vost pookot.
"Once ho has learned that lesson ho
may become again tho mau ho was in
former years, and bofore I got through
with him I'll soo to it that ho gets tho
paddle whacking ho so much nooda to
sot him straight."
The forogoiug expresses, in tl o terms
applied, tho strenuous nature of South
Carolina politics, ono phase of Senator
John Lowndes Mci,aluin's estimate of
tho prosont situation-bis opinion of tho
personality of his foromost opponent,
Senator Bonjamin Byan Tillman.
Tire fight between these two mon, on
whom tho oyoB of tho nation have boon
centered for tho past fow wooks, is still
on. Senator MoLauriu declares that lt
will go on to the finish.
Senator McLaurin got up from his
chair and walked across tho room to tho
mantlopioco, above which huug a group
of tho photos, on tho mat of whioh woro
tho words, "Stato officers of South Caro
lina." Immediately beneath tho pieturo
I of McLaurin, who was, nt twenty-nine,
Attornoy General of tho Stato, was a
pieturo of Tillman.
Pointing to this group, Senator Mc
Laurin continued: '
"lloro ho is. Look at him. Wo all
started togothor. I don't boliovo thoro
was ono among UB who was animated by
any other than honest motivos, and a
sincero desire to sorvo tho Stato to tho
bost of our ability. But of that group,
Tillman has wandered away alter falso
gods.
"Ho has gouo from ono extreme to tho
other, until to-day ho stands for the
socialism aud anarchism which mas
.pleiades under tho name of 'Democ
racy. '
"Ho hos docoivod and deluded tho
people of his Stato; tho things ho repre
sents aro a curso and a blight, upon, not
only South Carolina, but tho wholo
South, and tho timo has como when ho
must bo taught tho hardest lesson ho
over learned.
"Before I got through with this mis
?rable outfit, I will toar tho cover off it.
Those peoplo want mo to fight. I'll
fight them to a finish. This is a contest
between ignorance on ono sido and
intelligence on tho other. Tho negro
question no longer figures. Boforo
November, if Tillman forces tho fight
now, or by next y oar, if it doos not then,
tho pooplo will bo told tho truth, and
tho storm of ignorance gathering will
swoop tho tribo of Tillmnu from tho
State.
"Tho Domcracy of Bryan and Tillman
is nothing oxcopt socialism, populism
and anarchism. It thrives upon and
ndvocatos tho basest class and sectional
prejudices and appoals to thoso passions
w h io h no. honest man will, as an indi
vidual, acknowledge iulluonoos him.
"It is tho Domocracy of ignorance,
intolerance, bato, radicalism, depres
sion, disaster, ana tho only consolation
thoro is in it, is knowing that ho will
hover win anothor victory in South
Carolina."

Many Livos Lost in Oklahoma Tornado.
Perry, O. T., Juno 8.-Tho storm which
passed over Eastern Oklahoma last, night
was ono of tho most severe si nco tho
opening of tho Strip. A feature of tho
storm was tho extent, of tho territory
covorod, swooping down from tho Kansas
Stato lino and covering about fifty milos
in width, tho rain, wind and hail swept,
ovor tho country as far South as old
Oklahoma. Tho rain simply foll in tor
rents from early in tho evening until
midnight.
Tho fury of tho storm conterod in a
tornado at about ?0.80 p. m., which
formed at a point nonr tho Kansas Stato
lino and just on tho county lino of Ken
tucky and Grant, Oklahoma. Tho
twistor took a southeasterly course and
was most disastrous on a bolt of ton
milos sqitare in Eastern Kay county, and
tho littlo town of Eddy was struck and
of tho twolvo or fiftoon buildings in tho
placo all woro lovolod to tho ground
oxcopt tho railroad station and olovator.
Flying In m her was scattered for milos.
At Eddy th roo persons wore killed.
Fivo farm IIOUSCB with barns and out
buildings woro blown away, but tho
occupants all escaped without injury.
Fino Holds of whoat in tho midst, of
harvest woro laid waste. Tho tail end
of tho tornado foll with torriblo forco
upon Tonkawa. Thirty dwollings and
business houses woro scattorod liko so
much looso lumhor. Tho citi/.ons of tho
town had been watching tho advance of
tho tornado and bad sought shelter
in caves and cellars. No fatalities aro
reported at this point.
Strango to say, only a fow porsons
rocoivod oven a scratch. A few miles
from this point tho tornado sootned to
go up in tho air and tho country bolow
did not suffer much from thc storm
oxcopt hy washouts, a stiff wind and
hail which damaged whoat and fruit.
Tho financial loss by tho storm is
about $100,000.
At Hillings, Noblo county, much
damago was dono. Soven pooplo woro
killed and ninny severely injured. A
cloudburst occurred near Hennessey,
King Fisher county, and King Fishor
city suffered snvoroly.

Port Royal, Pa., June 10.-The Pitts
burg Coal and Coke Company'? plant,
No. 2, at this place, is again on firs after
steady running for sevon years, and over
thirty mon are lu the mines, many of
whom, it is feared, will never be heard
from again. About 0 o'clock smoko was

wbioh is on tho line of the Pittsburg and
Lako Erle railroad, lt is thought tho
Aro started from an explosion aud that
six mon woro in the mino at tho timo of

John Daly, Lawronoo Sotlor and John
Stakes. Stakes and Settlor woro not near

All sorts of plans havo boon suggested
for tho rescue of tho mon. Some talk of
turning tho rivor into tho minos, but
many aro opposed to this idea for foar of
drowning tho minors. All that would
bo necessary to lot tho dolugo of water
looso in tho mines would bo to pull
plug, which was placod in the minos
aftor tho explosion of seven years ago
and tho water would rush in tho minos
nt a rapid rato. Dalco, ono of tho mon

mation gi ven by a woman who inquired
for them this morning it is supposed that

with death as tho result of despondency
ovor the obduracy of an unforgiving

WHOLESALE PLOT TO POISON.
Two Soldiers Dead and Another Dying-Re
venge by Nogroes Alleged.
Beaufort, Juuo 8.-Sensational dovol
>pmouts bnvo transpired in eonnootlon
?villi tho dcntliB of Wright and Eastor
ling, which ocourrod respectively last
Tuesday aud Wodnosday at Fort Fro
nont, near hero.
Both mon woro onlisted sold ?ors be
onghig to tho artillery garrison at tho
'ort, and tho former was taken violontly
md suddonly ill last Monday after drink
ug sonic kind of bittora proourod from a
icgro, who conducted a blind tigor on
St. ITolona Island, in tho vioiuity of tho
port, and died a fow hours subsequently
u awful agony, which oxport medical
lid was absolutely powerless to aile vial e.
Kasterling was ono of the squad com
posing tho military escort which accom
panied tho remains of Wright hero last
Tuesday for interment in tho national
military cemetery, and ho ls quoted as
having remarked on that sad occasion
bat, ho did not credit tho theory that his
comrade had died from tho offoots of tho
bitters, aud upon his subsequent return
to tile fort ho proceeded to demonstrate
:he correct ness of his idea by imbibing
freely of tho very poison that had termi
nated the career of his friond on tho pro
viens day.
Fosterling was attacked with frightful
convulsions soon aftor drinking tho
alleged bitters, and tho port surgeon,
who lias grown gray in tho sorvico, is
roported to havo said that in nil his long
iorvioo in the army ho novor witnessed
mob intense suffering as this unfortunate
midier underwent. Death mercifully
anded tho man's agony in a fow hours
md his romains wore brought boro lor
ntormont in tho national cemetery on
tho day following tho funeral of Wright.
To-day it ia said that another member
)f tho garrison at Fort Fremont is ill,
with no hope of rocovory.
It is thought that a deliberate plot to
kill certain of tho soldiers by poisoning
hem lins boon formed by somo of tho
negroes who live in tho vicinity of tho
fort, some of whom allego that tho mili
tary mon havo boon committing dopreda
tious upon thom. Tho question as to
whet her tho coroner of Beaufort county
ihould or should not investigate tho cir
cumstances surrounding tho deaths of
Wright and Eastorling is hoing widoly
lisenssed, and it is gonorally conceded
that an inquest is imperativo if tho guilty
parties aro to bo brought to justice
