FROM THE RATION'S CAPITAL.
From Our Oicn Correspondent,
Washington, D. G.. Dec. 33,1001.
That Mr. Roosevelt makes a distinc
tion in machine politicians between
is he considers for him ab the next
Presidential candidate of his party dud
those who will not commit themselveB
has made certain by tbe ovents of the
week; also that ho is playing the game
under the guidance of a political ma
nipulator who has few if any superiors
in the turning of political tricks?II.
C. Payne, of Wie., vice-chairman of 1
the Republican National Committee,
who has been chosen to succeed Charles
Emory Smith as Postmaster General \
and who was Hnnna's second in the
bossing of the Republican side of the
last national campaign. The meaning
of PayneTs entry into the Cabinet is ob
! vious, as well as his being put at the
I head of the Post Office Department.
He.is to be the head of a Roosevelt ma
chine, which is to embrace all tbe pos
tal employees, and if Roosevelt secures
the nomination he will boss his cam
paign. The Republican machine poli
ticians who have been turned down by
Mr. Roosevelt are those who have not
pledged themselves to him. Although
there ia a disposition in some quarters
to credit Mr. Roosevelt with devotion
to pure politics, it cannot last long
after Mr. Payne gets to work on the
I Roosevelt political machine.
Mr. Charles Emory Smith says hi?
retirement from the cabinet was en
tirely voluntary and in accordance
with plans made long ago to return to
his newspaper duties? and there is a
general disposition to let it go at that,
although it is known that Mr. Smith's
talk as recently as a month ago indi
cated an expectation of remaining iu
the Cabinet nt least six months.
Now that the Cabinet ico is broken,
speculation is rife as to who will bo
the next to go. Many beliovo that it
will bo impossible for Secretary Long
to remain, no matter how ho handlos
tho mixed report of the Schley Court
of Inquiry and Rear Admiral Schley'a
strong and manly protest against that
portion of the report signed by Ad
miral Benimm and Ramsay, which he
declares to be at variance with all the
facts established by the evidence,
which has just been submitted, unless
Mr. Roosevelt commits himself in favor
of the fight against Sch??y> ,uuud>nobody
believes that he w?l commit - snob an
act of political folly as that would be.
In fact, it has been whispered around
for .ometime that Mr. Roosevelt would
be pleased if Secretary Long would
insist on retiring. Neither Hay, Wil
son, nor Hitchcock are thought to be
very securely anchored.
Gen. Pearson, late of the Boer army,
who is in Washington in the interest of
tho Boer republic, delivered a publie
address this week, in which he said:
"The argument used by the British for
gathering women and children in these
reconcentrado camps i3 absolutely ridi
culous. I"or tho -sake of argument, I
will admit that it war.a military neces
sity to concentrate and hold tho women
and children in captivity. Why did
not the British pat them in Johannes
burg, which could easily hold 200,000
people and is in a good sanitary condi
tion and practically. deserted? There
are thirteen towns which are practi
cally deserted and could have been
made available as concentration camps
or cities. The death rate at present is
258 per 1,000, occurring, not among In
dians or a wild race, but among the
most robust people on earth. The
facta regarding our army now in the
field havo been greatly distorted. We
have as a matter of fact about 80,000
burghers in the field. It is a far better
army now than over before."
Owing to tbe illness of Representa
tive Richardson, of Tenn., tho House
Democratic leader, the fight against
the Philippine tariff bill was led by
Reprerv itative S wan eon, of Va.," who
made wie most of thesmail opportunity
allowed by the Republican programme
of jamming the bill through in two
flays. Among tho hits made by Demo
crats in short speeches against thn bill,
that of Representative DoArmond, of
Mo., was striking. He said of tho
Philippines and the Repnblican policy:
'We acquired them in folly, let us dis
pose of them in wisdom. Almost every
nan in tho islands long for indopen
lenco and liberty. How long will it
1)0 before another insurrection brenko
Hit? Who can tell how many of our
pputh it will lay away in country
diurchyards, how many dollars of
Httra levy it will cost the people? How
nuch better would it bo for us to rc
;urn to the principles of any American
larty and make an end of our troubles,
Why not dispose of thorn to some
:ountry that wants colonies? Any dis
position of them is better than their
etention."
Boss Platt is growing thin-skinned
>ad ever-sensitive in his old age. He
s whining like a baby about a charac
or sketch of himself, written by Wil
iam Allen White, of Kansas, who is a
Republican, and published in-one of
he ten-cent magasiner, and threaten
ntr libel nuits against both writer and
)ublisher. The incident is regarded
is rather comical by the average Sena
or and Representative, who are dis
used to regard such things as all in
,ho day's work..
Mr. Andrew Carnegie was a gnest of
klr. Roosevelt this week, and they dis
eased his offer to givo tho United
HStes 810,000.000 in steel trust bonds
'or a national university, a gift that
\\r. Roosevelt was afraid to accept.
Good Roads Convention.
Greenville, S. 0., Deo. 11).?Notwith
standing wind and weather conspired
to defeat the good intentions of tho
good roads people, the meeting here
has proved not only a success, but a
success exceeding expectations. Dele
gates have been coming in from all
parts of tho State during the week.
These men are earnest in seeking- to
solvo tho problem of how to mako bet
ter roads, and they came hero to learn.
Tho Convention met this morning in
tho Opera House, two hundred or nioro
delegates being present. Ex-Lieut.
Gov. M an Id in called tho Convention to
order and introduced Senator A. H.
Dean, who welcomed the delegates to
Greenville in a neat and tasteful ad
dress. W. H. Moore, president of the
National Good llonds Association, re
sponded in a capital speech, accepting
the hospitality of Gteenville and sug
gesting excellent results from the meet
ing. Committees on organisation and
business were appointed, and then Mr.
D. C. Heyward, of Walterboro, was in
troduced, and delivered a ringing
speeoh on the subject of good roads
improvement.
After dinner the Convention met in
the County Oourt House. The com
mittees appointed at the morning ses
sion reported. It was decided to form
a permanent organization, adopting
the name, "South Carolina Good Roads
Association." The following were elec
ted permanent officers : President, F.
H. Hyatt, of Columbia; Vice Presi
dents, tho Supervisors of each County;
Secretary, Earle Sloan, of Charleston ;
Treasurer, G. F. Tolly, of Anderson.
After tho permanent organization Con
gressman A. C. Latimor and Col. J. II,
Whnrton ' addressed tho Association.
A resolution was adopted asking the
Legislature to establish a good roads
bureau, and to authorize Counties to
levy special taxes for road improve
ment. An invitation was received
from Mayor Smyth, of Charleston, to
attend a meeting oil the Southern Good
Roads Association in Charleston from
February 8 to 10.
To-night M. O. El bridge, of tho Uni
ted States H arena of Road Inquiries,
delivered a lecture, illustrated by ste

Piedmont teller.
'-'At Home!" These are the hospitable
words the'., like a welcoming angel,
stand upon the smooth platform of bris
tol board in society's social announce
ments. To these inviting words many
ilook to grasp the band of the_hostess, re
osant bits of interest, hear pleasures and
altogether be duly and who?y ente: tain
ed with some of the choicest brief ?v -
monts of their lives.
Will the readers of the "Porlman Let
ters" who can enduro, who oan at all
bear transportation from Portman to
Piedmont, pardon the writer for this
trouble to their nervos and Christian
pationce, Inviting them to ooeaiiocally
drop in upon us even on paper in the
borne or columns of tho Auderson Intel
P $en Ter?
Personalities?though not admittedly
so?are among thu swoetest tidbits of
tete-a-tete converse in these little social
functions ; again will these dear readers
pardon us if we take thorn into onr con
fidence and tell them that should they,
between this and New Year's, or, in fact,
within the whole year of onr natural life,
be passing by the correspondent's home,
4 miles from Piedmont, in the Hurri
cane Creek seotlon, they., will find our
"At Homo" ' annou ncomont written on
brooms, dust-pans, gingham aprons, fire
shovels and tongs. More especially will
this form of announcement be unchanged
within the next few weeks, but this out
landish form must not deter those refined
adepts of the "bristol board." They shall
certainly find ns awaiting them, even if
we muRt stop to remove our apron and
dust a chair in pretence of their approach.
While putting up pegs, hanging raoks,
diving into cornera and groping ont with
rubbish, straightening this, smoothing
that, we could not help thinking would a
man do this way? Would he nail up his
fences, replace shingles, mend {broken
windows, replace glass, paint worn places,
gather up the brambies, rake the leaves,
make bU place preaentablo, clean and
liveable, as a woman trios to do with
bur house?
Thorn where lies the nficrot of ?i wo
[nan's short and patched-up Hie, doing
little things that don't eount as an aver
age bulk! When tho wholo Is done day
iftorday, the littleness of it grieves her,
when any of it ia left undone, tho large
.f.sn of its amount grieves her more.
iho must be doing, doing irom morning
o night, and at tho ond s jy. what have I
lone? What a wasted day ! These con
inual repetitions of what sbecalls wasted
lays ho pross upon her more delicate na
uro that beforo half way to the end of
lfe, she is dragged down and old.
Not so with a man, ho lives in the
calm of optimism, ho is not looking at
Ittle things like pin points ; he is look
ng at tho large circumference of tn'oir
adlationB; what he does not do to-day he
rill do to- morrow, and if he does not do
t to morrow the next day will answer,
ind if he docs not do It at all?well?tbe
vorld will not oome to an end for that,

A patient housekeeper, who theo
;rieved day after day, and arguing the

I was speaking ot appearanc. iu
reality Bhe was not doing more tha'^Qr
husband, bnt in appearance?the
looted work of heir's was more demora..
log at the end of the day than the ne,
looted work of her husband. She hai
nothing to complain of, be was making a
living for the family outaldo, abe was
preserving Lfo in tbe family Inside. He,
with one greet tnonght, looking forward
to harvest was whistling after bis plow,
she, with as many thoughts as there are
threads in a loom, was washing and
cleansing, cooking and baking, mending
and making, instructing and pray
ing ; the labors of both converging to one
point at tho end of the day?the welfare
and comfort of tbe little united family.
Men do tho large things of life, women
the small, men uro like the hour hand on
tho o?ook ?md woxnbu tho minute, and
Home women like the second hand, in
rapidity, more constant activity, nervous
revolution run, run almost to death at
tho end of nu hour, having gone no fur
ther than the minute hand nor tbebonr
hand; nil having arrived at the post at
tho same exact moment, none haying
outrun the othor ucr boon behind tho
other lu usefulness.
Again, men might bo likenod to the
trees and women to the leaves. The
leaves might say; "Well, I am just here
as an appendage, the trees supporting
mo," but wero the leaves to be cutoff
the trees tho trees would soon die; for
through the leaves they receive their in
spirations of Ufa from the atmosphere*
Then look at the trees in winter, when
their leaves are dead! What a barren,
j lonely, sblveriug apectaoie they make! .
Enough perhaps has been said about
the housekeeper. Since we area house*
maker ourselves, we have great respect
for the housemakera, and trust we bave
given no offence when we say their
wives' work Is as important to thefamily
as their own. All good and just men
acknowledge this and say that without
their wives they would be poor, wretch
ed, miserable oreatnre?. Were the editor
not so opposed to poetry I would like to
copy a whole poom here for the solace of
the housekeeper and of her husband,
who is not one, but the editor thinks if
people write poetry they are apt to forget
the realities of life and seek to live on
dreams, and dreamH without money?
which seldom attends poetry?will not
pay a subscription to our paper; this
alone would make any editor sigh while
saying grace at meals. A few stanzas

O, life Isa toll and love Is a trouble,
And beauty will fade and rlohes will

And pleasures they dwindle and prices
they double,
And nothing is what I could wish It to

There's too much of worrlment goes to a

There's too much of ironing goes to a

There's nothing that pays for the time
you waste on it;
There's nothing that lasts but trouble

It's sweeping at six and dusting at seven;
It's victuals at eight and dishes at nine;
It's potting and panning from ten to

Wo scarce break our fast ere we plan
how to dine.
With grease and with grime from eorneif"

Forever at war and ' . ever alert,
No rest for a day lest the onomy onter**^

with dirt.
Last night in my dreams I wtts .stationed
forever
On a baro little isle in the midst of the
sea;
My one chance of lifd was a ooaseless en*

To sweep off tho waves ere they swept
over me.
Alas, 'twas no dreim, again I behold it! -
I yield, I am hopeless my fate to avert!"
Sho rolled down her sleeves, her apron
she folded,
Then laid down and died and was
buried in ditt.
