PIEDMONT REGION'S NAME.
What Doos it Mean?-An Alleged Curious
Fact in History.
Mrs. T. Mi Green, ot Washington,
Ga., gives tho following explanation
of tho terni Piedmont in a recent
issue of the Atlanta Journal :
Wo all have a vague sort of idea
that wo live in the great "Piedmont
Region," but exactly what that
means, what its boundaries are, or
why so called, not one of us can tell.
There is no Piedmont river nor
mountain nor Indian tradition upon
which to found the namo. In fact,
it is not an Indian name, but French.
Wo hear people in Virginia and
North Carolina say they live in thc
"Piedmont Region." We hear South ,
Carolinians and Alabamians say thc
same thing, and as for Georgians,
you would think tho whole State
ought to bo called Piedmont, since
people from every comer claim to
inhabit that mysterious region whoso
center is nowhere and whose boun
daries everywhere.
It puzzled mo a long time. I <
used to ask common mortals, like
myself, about it, but they could not
Loll. Then I asked those who were
authority on nomenclature, with tho
*amo result. Then I watched for
u>me mention of it in all the South- i
Brn histories that I read, and only
once did I lind anything like a clew.
That was in Logan's History of
South Carolina, a book, by the way
is rare and as valuable as Gov- i
urnor Oilman's Georgians. Here
I saw it stated that upper
South Carolina-around Abbeville
was settled in part by Piedmontese.
This seemed a clue, but was not
satisfactory, for the region nailed
Piedmont extends from the Chesa
peake Ray to central Alabama.
In the life of Alexander Stephens,
by Richard Malcom Johnston, men
tion is made that Mr. Stephens, on
ono occasion away back in the
forties, went over to Washington,
3a., to take the "Piedmont stage
inc," and this sentence, coupled
with local traditions, explains the
whole thing. The Piedmont region
8 simply thc region traversed by a
ino of stage coaches run by a
frenchman of thc name of Piedmont.
Thc line originally ran from Rioh
nond, Va., to Columbus, Ga., but
ater waa extended to Montgomery,
vin. Possibly it changed horses ?it
Marthasville, and for thia reason
Atlanta claims to bo thc bead center
A the Piedmont region.
Whether tho Frenchman's name
was Piedmont or whether he was a
refugee from thc province of that
lame in Italy, I cannot say, but he
md his stage coaches gave tho name
,o tiie region through which they
oasscd. The line followed tho
Iridian trails and the Indian trails
followed the natural wealth ot tho
country. The Indians selected those
daces for building their villiagCS
nost favored by nature. They
?ought pure water to di ink, good
itreams to fish in and good forests
,o hunt in. The best hunting ground
was always where vegetation was
nost luxuriant, for wild animals fed
on nuts, fruits, cane and grass.
It is curious to look back a hun
Ired years and see how civilization
ms marched in thc footprints of
?a vago ry. First came tho Indians,
jingle lile, silently marching one
behind the other. Then came the
railers, with their pack horses, fol
owing thc paths of thc; Indians and
telling them rum and pclfry for
ileitis and furs. Thou came the
white settlers, with their families.
When tho sottlors carno tho paths or
,rails Wore widened to admit wheels.
Then came thc BtagO coach. Then
,ho steam engine, plunging, plowing
md bursting wide open tho biddon
censures of stream and forest. It is
i fact that thc railroads are built,
'or tho most, part, along the linea of
,ho old stage routes, so that in look
ng backward wo sec that thc Indians
inrveyed many of the lines now cov
)rcd by steel rails, telegraph and
.elophone wires.

THE POUTICAL PROSPECT."
MoLaurin Tolls of His Purpose to Fight
Bryanarchy and Tillnianla.
Tho following Is nu intorviow with
Sonntor John L. McLouriu priutod in
tho Bnltimoro Amorioan of Saturday:
"I havo lived a Dornocrat aud oxpoot
to dio one," Souator MoLauriu ropliod,
"but my Domooracy is not that of Bryan
and Tillman. My Domooracy is that of
intelligence and enlightened public inter
est; progressive, non-sectional and de
voted to tho iutorosts of tho co?utry. It
is tho Domooracy that m nd o our country
groat and graud in all matoiial things
during its onjoymont of powor from 1800
to 1800. It is tho Dotnocrney that looks
to tho futuro aud moans to nerve tho
natiou by aiding and assisting tho indi
vidual. It is tho Domocraoy that will
ultimately freo tho South from tho thral
dom of blindness aud ignorance which
now negatives its ovory olTort. It is tho
Domooracy that will swoop away preju
dice as tiro basis of political standardiza
tion and enthrone reason. So long ns
tire South continuos as it is to day it can
not bo a factor in tito party conventions
or in tho government. Tho Democracy
I believe in would chango nil this and
make Southern Representatives some
thing moro than puppota. Whon it tri
umphs-and that will bo in Novombor if
Tillman wants tho fight this year-tho
South will havo a voico in formulating
principles, and wo will thon givo to our
country somo of our mon, liko John W.
Daniel, of Virginia, candidatos for the
Presidency. On tho other hand tho
Domooracy of Bryan and Tillman is noth
ing oxcopt socialism, populism and an
ii ch ism. It thrives upon and advocates
tho basest of class and sectional preju
dices and appeals to those passions
winch no honest man will, as an indi
vidual, acknowledge as inlluoucing him.
lt is tho Domocracy of ignoranco, intol
erance, bato, radicalism, depression, dis
aster, mid tho only consolation thcro is
in it is in knowing that it will nevor win
mother victory in South Carolina.
Senator MoLaurin spoke with convinc
ing oarnostnoss, and was so emphatic
that I thought it a good timo to ask him
iomething moro about Tillman, as tho
conditions woro all propitious for an in
teresting reply, so 1 said:
"What havo you to say about Tillman's
itatomont that when the crucial moment
?irrivos you will bo afraid to meet on tho
itu mp and discuss these things before
tho pooplo of South Carolina?"
Senator MoLaurin roso from Iiis seat,
walked to tho window at my hack, drew
I ho curtain aside, and, with all tho signs
;>f a gathoring storm about his counte
nance, said in a tense voico:
"See that dome off yonder?"
I looked ami saw thc dome of tho
Marlboro County Court House, half a
milo away, just discernible over tho
brees, and signified to tho Senator that I
?aw.
"It was in that building that lien Till
man bogan his political career in 1880,
ind it was thcro that I launched him
Into politics. Up to tho timo of this
li florence Tillman nevor carno to lion
act tsvillo without referring to that cir
cumstance It was this way: There was
\ Stato Agricultural Convention in sos
lion herc and Tillman was a dolegato.
He stopped at my house, and togother
ivo talked over Stato affairs. Tho brigs
lier generals woro in powor, and tho
Stato sn M cred under tlioir rulo. Tillman
io tor mi ned to make aspeeoh, Wo wrote
it jointly, and whon it was completed 1
lid what you would call 'edited it.'
Thal speech was tho beginning of Till
man as a politician, and from that day
until tho scales foll from my oyes wo
Woro togother, and ho knows that I am
lot afraid to meet him. When Tillman
.an for (Jovornor tho first timo I was his
friend, I supported him, I was on tho
dump with him. I know him through,
backward and frontward. I know him
to bc a bluffer and a bully-an intellec
tual bully. Ho shouts and fumes and
raves on tho stump, calls names and dis
tributes epithets, but his noiso does not
icaro mo. I told him at QnfTnoy that I
was tho ono man in thc Stato who could
.ow him, and I can."
Crowing moro intensely earnest Sena
tor Me Lam in continued:
"Last, year Tillman and his gang wont
ip and down tho Stato villifying mo,
md saying that 1 would nevor dare como
lack and faco tho pooplo of South Caro

ng in responso to invitations, Tillman,
iko tho bully and millan that bo is,
mmes in ns a common disturber of tho
?oaco and ti ios to break np my meetings.
I .nut. yoar ho said I was al raid to speak;

dump that 'tho Hilde is obsolete, ally?

There was wrath writ hugo all over
ienator MeLaurin's faco as ho finished,
asked hut ono moro question, and that:
"Von aro determined to koop up tho

"Thc light will most certainly bo kept

WASHINGTON lM.KASKl) HY ACTION.
Washington, June 12.-The news
of the adoption of thc Platt amend
ment by the Cuban constitutional
convention was received with genu
ine gratification here.
Now lhat the Cubans have demon
strated their good faith in the
United States, it is expected that a
fairly speedy evacuation of the
island will follow, contingent only
upon the establishment of a slable
government hi the islands.
An effective police force and other
measures necessary to the preserva
tion of good order and sanitation
are deemed as essential prerequisites
in the formation of the new govern
ment. One cabinet officer, speaking
of the matter, expressed the opinion
that if tho other requirements are
mot our withdrawal might be accom
plished during Ino summer and that
Cuban independence might be
reality by next autumn.
Gen. Wood to-night communicated
to tho war department officially tho
fact that the amendment had been
adopted.

The President Safely Guarded.
Tho 15,000 milo journey which
President McKinley and his Cabinet
recently completed calls up anow tho
oft heard query : Is tho President
attonded by a bodyguard ?
It ?B not commonly known, but a
fact, uotwithstnudiug, that more pre
cautions for tho safoty of tho Presi
dent aro taken than havo ever been
thought necessary with any of his
predecessors.
There is not a Bingle moment dur
ing tho President's appearance in
[)ublio boforo crowds that ho is not
within a half dozen foot of his big,
powerful protector.
Georgo Foster, a skilled secret ser
vico officer, acts as tho President's
bodyguard on all his trips through
tho country. Foster is a tall, ath
letic chap, strong as an ox and nervy
is a Welshman. When tho Presi
dent Bteps out on thc rear platform
A his car to address tho crowds at
railway stations, Foster is invariably
within a half dozen feet of him.
When tho presidential carriage
hives through thc streets Foster
follows in a vehicle scarcely a dozen
?mees behind.
When tho Exccutivo visits some
iity tho chief of police always details
four or live of his best men to "pro
ject" him. If tho chiefs of police
who detail detectives to "protect"
,he President only knew that this
lort of thing is objectionable to that
dlioial they would probably refrain
'rom detailing men. Of course it is.
ill right to assign one or two local
letcctives to look out for local
.crooks," and there would be no
abjection to this if the sleuths would
july attend to their own business,
lint tho point that displeases the
['resident most is tho fact that tho
ocal sleuths are always hovering
?round him like bees around a clover
>atch. Foster, however, has the
cnack of being around and on hand ?
without being seen.
An amusing incident occurred last
nimmer during the President's trip
nto New England. The party
stopped at Mount Holyoke, where I
?is niece waB attending school. A
jig platform had been erected in i
rout of the seminary to be used as a ?
ipeaking stand. When thc Prcsi- I
lent alighted from his carriage a tall,
jaunt, hungry looking citizen pushed :
tis way up to the carriage and at
,empted to open tho door. Foster,
yho was riding on tho box, grabbed l
.he tall man by the arm and brushed i
lim aside. i
"Hold on here, what thc-,"
mid the local sleuth. "What are you
loing? I'm chief herc."
"Chief nothing," said Foster, as he
grabbed the tall man by tho seat of
,he trousers and literally threw him
-brough the crowd. Thc President
iould not help smiling as ho saw his
)ig, faithful bodyguard hurling the
ocal oflicial iii rough the air.
In Washington the President dis
cuses with the formality of a pro
motor. Frequently he goes out walk
ng alone, and it is not uncommon to
?oe him in the parks and on the ave
nios on a pleasant afternoon stifli
ng alone, or with one of his oflicial
amity. During the pleasant morn
ngs ho drives through thc parks
villi Mrs. McKinley. While the
'resident is in Washington Foster
vorks in the Treasury building under
Jhiof Wilkie, of the Secret Service
department. Ile has figured in the
inp thro of some of tho most notori
uis and dangerous criminals in thc
Jnitod States, his most recent work

Sonator McLaurin's Course.
Should Senator MoLaurin fail in
his campaign for ro-oloctiou his fail
ure will bo ono of tho incomprehen
sible features of modern .politics.
South Carolina is a Stato in which
the white man dominates. Tho in
telligent white sentiment decides
elections chore, and Senator MoLau
riu's appeals aro addrosscd to that
class only. His arguments aro un
answerable, and unless tho political
vision of South Carolina's Avhito
population is hopelessly perverted
ids courso must bo heartily approved.
Two classes of questions are to
come beforo the United States Son-v
ate. One is political, the othor non- '
political. At tho outsot a question
may belong to tho former class, ouly
to pass by regular processes into tho
latter. Such a ono was tho curronoy
question, political at first, non-politi
cal when it was demonstrated that
the gold standard was moBt promo
tive of our national interests. Tho
tariff question has for years boon
undergoing a somewhat similar tran
sition. Tiie expediency of a war
with Spain was originally a politioal
question ; the grant of tho emergency
war fund, the appropriations for tho
increased anny and navy expenses,
tho ratification of tho Paris treaty
have developed into non-politicr'..
Groat hurt has been inilicted upon
the country because these non-politi
cal matters wore opposed on partisan
grounds by tho minority in Congress,
and the Stato which has a man in
tho Senato with tho courage to
rcfuso to disguise duty in tho
mask of partisanship should honor
him.
This is what Senator MoLaurin
did. Ile saw his duty as an Ameri
can and ho did it fearlessly. Con
trasted with his record, that of his
foremost antagonist, Senator Tillman,
is tho record of unparalleled dema
goguery. While Senator MoLaurin
was voting to promote the develop
ment of the South, Senator Tillman
was voting against everything which
thc Southerners should hold dear,
simply because it was advocated by
Republicans. There is no compari
son between these men. MoLaurin
is thc friend of South Carolina; Till
man is her enemy. If tho State
understands its interests, it will turn
a deaf ear to Tillman's anti-MoLau
rin jdeas and return MoLaurin to
the Senate. By so doing it will
start the now era of Southern devel
opment aright, and it is no disgrace
Lo honor a man who has tho courage
Lo do right, even if occasionally ho
has to vote with thc opposition party
Lo do it.-Baltimore American.

Dr. Carlisle Talks to Wofford Students.
The commencement exercises of
Wofford College passed off in a most
satisfactory manner last week. Dr.
James II. Carlisle's talk to tho stu
dents and several hundred other peo
ple Sunday night received very closo
attention. His subject was"Ilcavoly
Visions," suggested hy Paul's saying :
"Whereupon, King Agrippa, I was
not disobedient to tho. Heavenly
vision." With fine force and effect
ho followed up this line of thought.
Ile opened it with a few questions
such as these : Can a man disobey
Lhe heavenly vision? Can the or?a
lo ro disobey the Creator? If God
says thou shalt, can you say I will?
Can the finite struggle with tho in
imit? and hope to come off victori
ous? If Paul had disobeyod that
heavenly vision how much would ho
liavo lost ? What would tho world
have lost through his disobedience?
Young people see visions and tho
*\or)' of their lives depends on the
following of tho ways pointed out.
[jllliding lights and stunning sounds
ire not necessary to visions. Any
thing that breaks in on the dull,
commonplace lifo and brings it up to
i higher plane is a vision, livery
protest against the low, the grovel
ling, the dobnscd, is a vision from
ibovo. Visions Hash out from every
ionic where lhere is a good mother
anxiously caring for her children,
lt is said of the mother of Phillips
Drooka that she never left homo to
itlond a social function until her
youngest child had no need of her
