CoLU MB lIA, 6. C., sept. 12.-The d<

Farmer's Alliance, by Senator .Butle
at Batesbirg, has so far gone itncha
lenged. btit yesterday the Foriner passe
through Columbia on his way h1or
from Ilorry aild Georgetown, and h
gave to the papers a written statemet
of his position in the matter, and it a
pears in the shape of ai interview, at
is as follows:
When asked about the violetit laI
gttite of Setator litler at IBttesbur
oil the t9th, hte said lie hali not had tir
to read the proceehings carefully, but I
would do so and act as the circulmstat
ces seemed to justify.
With presmit lights, however, it a
peartd to him that Senator lItitler,
correctlv reported, was dealing in tI
cheapest sort of cheap gasconade wh(
lie denounced as liars all who said I
had charged -40,0 farmers with beil
thieves and scoundrels.
"Nobody, so far as I know," said 1)
Stokes, "lhas nver said any such thing.
will he sueti by reading the whole matt
in the Cotton lant of A ugnst 8, ar
following. It was merely a deductic
by logical process fro'n his language i

several papers, as a premise.
"lie now denies that premise, after:
long aI time, though lie has written so

"The publi. will searcely be swayi

Sit peri tetiient Talbert, of' the Sta

r. sations with each other.
Is A gentleman who noticed all these
,r little things put them together and
d drew somo conclusions and he unbur
c daned hinself to a W orld correspondent.
H lie thought these continual private con
y tabi looked a little suspicious, because
the Butlers and 'Tillmans have not al
10 ways been so friendly. They have
never been enemies, but Congressman
'n Tillman and Senator Butler were never
seen aticking together like brothers be
r- "After all this hobnobbing," the
9, gentleman with one eye to politics con
tinued, "did you notice tlat every time
' General Capers referred to the heroic
,r valor of Lieutenant James Tillman in
s- the late war, how Senaior lutler would
,r applat-d and pound the floor with his
ic caue like he meant to punch a hole
1- through it?"
"Now what do you thinik," the gentle
man went on, "utf Governor Tilman
r- caIling Senator Blutler away from the
b- pavilhon, going to a caurriage and re
I- maining there in close and conf.dential
- conversatlon for soue time? Their man
le ner of talking andl tihe expression of
their faces 1did not lead one to believe
.d that they w-re talking vit her about the
i- rain or the tcrop conditions, or what
cott on would bring fall.
te "ISeveral years age Senator 11ith-r, in
l- at speech in the upper part of the State
r asked very derisively: 'Who Is this man
Ien 'T"illmian ?' Last year at the Lees
V ville Colnilielceieit., too, he had a
10 great deal to say about the Shell nani
'e festo and t.ht debauching anI bambooz
1s ling business. Taking these things in
lr to consideration, does it not also seem
i curious that these two Should be hob
nobbiiig in that carriage ?"
Ig "1eing asked what it all meant, the
4 gentleman replied that in his opinlion
kd the governor and the Senator were mak
ing a kind of combination whereby the
e governor will not contest for the sena
t torsh ip, and 1he senator on his mart will
strive to get the former antl-'illinan
ites, now I1a,kellites, to support 'Til
)Y man, and with this combination they
0 think they cmn. heat the sub-treastiry
"I expect that Governor 'Tillnan hai
- found that Talbert and Stokes were
abotit to down him on the stib-treasury,
re and that lie was forced to patch up a
1. treaty of peace with the ring lie
e- smashed, and it di(n't look as if Senator
Butler would be averse to being in on
the 'ground floor' wlhen the pipe of peace
"1k-sides all this," the gentleman re
sci markedl further, "a relat ive of Congress
man Tillmatn and the governor told ine
'the TJillmans and Ih utler are now all
mn "Ilave you nmot nioticed that The State,
h in ('oltmbiai, has kinder let up on Tlill
s- mnan, atnd in fact has not said anything
eatbout himii for somneti me, andc that it has
been giving Tialfuert and Stokes more
attention than Tillman ? Who knows
but what the administration will yet se
cutre an organ. Think of T1he State,
founded to tigh t the administration, be
comning the organ of the 'D)ominant
"But don't you think, it such a conm
2 bination was made or talked about, that
-it would practically shut Governor Till
.inan out of the lit-ed States senate if
ihle should wvant to go there, as has been
clai med by some1 newspapers ?" wasit
d "Not necessarily so," said the gentle
men. "Tillmnan is an ungrateful man
andl after his re-election would not, I
~think, hesitate to become a candidate
for the United States senate against
iSenator Buttler. Whleni the tinme camne,
~if lhe thought lie could be elected, lhe
4; woutld enter thie race. Should the gov
dI ernor be elected he would simply pay
~the senator back for his treatment of
ts Gen. M. WV. Gary, whose confidence Son
a ator Ilutler enjoyed. iIe knew that
I, General Gary would be a candid(ate for
,* that p)osition in 1874i. That it would be
y poetical justice for General Gary's irat
e lieutenant in 1874; to avenge the wrongs
(1<lone to his chief."
".ls there any more in this 'all roundl
0 detat' than Governor Tillman, Congress
Sman Tillmnan andI Senator Biutler ?"
" asked the correspondent.
"I don't know,'remarked the speaker.
e 'l saw Solicitor Nelson communing
u- with the Tilmans and Senator Butler,
n bitt whether he is 'in It' or not, 1 :lo not
e know. Bitt it is strange to see himn over
e here when he should] have been at home
a preparinig for court, which wilt convene
there Mondaty September 7. 1 suippose
ethe combine willI include all of the pres
enct state oflicors, andI all the former op
position wvho have aniy Influence, for
k t hey wtill needi all the hellp they can get."
Tfhis is what an observant gentletian
thought, and it Is giveni as nearly in his
Y own wordls as possible. Whether his
e suppositions are true or itot only time
I- cani tell.--Charleston World.

COIXMiiA, S. C., Sept. Il.-A few
days ago Gov. Tilnian received the fol
lowing from Chairman Neal of Ithe State
Democratic Executive Committee, of
the State of Ohio:
Cml.lm aUs, Ohio, Sept. 3, 1891.
Governor It. It. Tillman, Coluiibia, S. C.:
Aly DEAIL Slit-The Democratic par
ty of the State of Ohio i just entering
upon the greatest struggle in its his
tory. Ily the nominw ion of lion. Vil
liatm McKiilev, ,Jr., the litepublicais
have squarely endorsed the tariff law,
of which lie is author, and thus they
have made the great issie before the
people-that of tariff reform. We glad
ly take in the gage of war. Wit,h the
chief apostle of protectton as the stand
ard-bearer of their party, Ohio becomes
this year the great national battle
ground upon which is to be fought the
fiercest preliminary struggle of 1892.
With such viti interests at stake, with
so much that is dear to the people de
pending upon the result, we expect, the
sympathy and encouragement of the
Democrats of every State in the Union.
It is our desire, and the wish of Govern
or Campbell and the other candidates
on th- State ticket, to hold the great
rally of the campaign on Tuesday, Oc
tober (tth, to be known as "The Govern
ors' Aleeting," and addressed by the
Denocratic governors of every State.
It will be held in the capitol building,
and will be the greatest political meet
1ng ever gathered on the soil of Ohio.
We earnestly and cordially invite you
to give greeting to our people and to
tell theim how their cause is being l)
held throughout our common country.
We shall expect you and welcome you
with open arms. Will you c-me?
Every attention will be given your
comfort and convenience. You'will
not be (Iuartered at a hotel. but eut 'r
taned at the homes of the hospitaIe
citizens of Columbus.

most sincerely, .1 A Ei:". N 1.:.k.,

MY J).AR Sin-Your letter of Sep.
tmber 3d, inviting me to attend a
"grand )emocratic rally" on the 6th of
October, at the capital of Ohio is re
ceived. I realize fully the importance
of the contest being waged between
")emocracy" and Iepublicanism in
your State this year, and would gladly
lend any aid in my power to secure the
re-election of Governor Campbell. If
he is victorious-and God grant lie may
be--he will be the next President of the
I'nited States. The Soutih In general,
and South Carolina in p articilar, has
grown disgusted with the "ways that
are dark and tricks that are vain" of
New York's greedy politicians, by
which the national "Democrney" ha-i
more than once been betrayed, because
of cor-rupt bargains in the struggle for
supremacy in New York city's umunici
pa! election. We long for a candidate
who breathes a pure political atmos
phere, and will rejoice it' Ohio shall fur
nish the man. I regret, my olicial dit
ties will not permit me to be with you
on the (by mentioned, in person, but 1
wvill be there in spirit, and bid you Goth
speed in your glorious light.
T1hanking you for your courtesy, I am
very respect,rully, ii. IL. TILLMAN,
