The proposed amendment to the
Constitution in which the general

A committee of Charleston's citi
zens went to Washington last week,
and President Roosevelt assured them
that he had no idea of abandoning his
trip to the Exposition. This com
mittee went for the purpose of insist
ing on his coming, as it was rumored
that he would not visit South Caro
lina just now on aooount of Jim Till
man's telegram to him. The exact
date of the President's visit will be
announced in a few days.
Charlea Broadway Rouss, the mil
lionaire merchant of New York, died
at his home in that city on Monday
3rd inst. He was born in Maryland,
but was doing business in Virginia
at the outbreak of the war. He enter
ed the Confederate army, and made a
fine reoord as a soldier. He went to
New York in 1865 with not a cent in
his pocket, and by industry and perse
verance built up one of the largest
wholesale houses in this country. He
was a liberal contributor to all public
oharities and especially to the Confed
erate veterans. Ile built a monument
in New York at his own expense to
Confederate soldiers, gave $100,000
for a Confederate monument at Rich
mond, Va., and will give $100,000 for
a memorial hall to the old soldiers as
soon as a like amount is raised. His
death will not effect this last gift, and
it will bo given as soon as the condi
ditions have been complied with.
During the past quarter of a cen
tury vast sums ot money have been
expended for the advancement of edu
caron in the United States. Some of
that money has done good and some
of it has been worse than wasted.
There has been a woful lack of sys
tem and method, and a great deal of
the money has been expended in a
way that oould not possibly yield sat
isfactory returns. Tho wealthy phil
anthropists of the north have at last
turned their attention to systematic
work in the educational field. John
D. Rockefeller and others are behind
the movement to organize, the educa
tional work of the United States, es
pecially in thc south, on a larger
scale than ever yet attempted. Back
of this movement is the southern edu
cational conference, of which Mr.
Robert C. Ogden is the the leading
member. Several miJlion dollars will
bo put into tho general, fund and it
willVbeyOarefully and judiciously ex
ponded by those who understand the
bera way? ?ti which to use it. Tho
educational donatations of the future
are not to be squandered nor arc they
to bc directed aimlessly. Every dol
lar given for the advancement of cdu
oatioa will have a definite ohanncl
into which it will go, and will bc
directed and handled by men of
thorough experience in all thc diff?r
ent lines of educational wurk.

Editor Intelligencer: All the theories
advanced in favor of and upholding
the .Senior Senator from South Caro
lina, will crumble and vanish when
pined under the X liny.
Tho assertion ol* the editor of the
Daily Mail in a recent article, that
"Senator Tillman did not make such a
charge against him, (meaning Senator
McLaurin) though he expressed a bc
lief founded upon circumstantial evi
dence, but that belief is shared in and
has beni expressed hy thousands of
Democrats in this State because they
have seen him at tho Republican pie
counter and acting as tho almoner of
Republican bounty, and they see no
other Democratic Senator from the
South doing that,''isas unfounded ns
all other flimsy arguments used in
shielding the Senior Senator. Here is
the language used, as furnished by the
Associated Tress, where Senator Till
man said in reply to Senator Spooner.
"You know,*' he shouted, shaking his
finger at the Republican side, "how
the votes necessary were secured."
"How were they secured?'' demand
ed Mr. Spooner.
"1 know, if tho Senator doesnot,"rc
plied Mr. Tillman.
"I have received information in con
fidence from that side of the chamber.
I know from that that improper influ
ences were used in getting those votes."
"Name tho man," insisted Mr. Spoon
er, "upon whom these influences were
brought to hear. It is duo the Senator
and duo the country that ho name him.
A man who impeaches another in con
fidence is a coward. If the Senator
knovnoT nny man who has been im
properly influenced he should name
him." ls this not plain enough to any
one who can road and understands tho
Mark these words. Mr. Editor, of the
Senior Senntor "I know," &c.-. Hy
what right does the editor of the Daily
Mail assert that Senator Tillman did
not make any such charge."
If n man makes a charge in such
positive terms as "I know." then ho
should prove what he knows, or olso
admit that ho did not know. If he
knew, why did ho not prove it when it
wns demanded of him? It is therefore
very evident that ho did not know
then, does not know at present; and
that anger, malice, jealousy and tho
?lispoBition to "rule or ruin" predomi
nates in his ambition to announce him
self "Czar of Tillmnnia."
If a physician is called to the bedside
of a person in a dying condition, and
the physician believes that a few more
hours or days of hope may help tho pa
tient, although at heart the physician
knows that there is no hope whatever,
he is justified in telling such a patient
and tho?? around him that his case is
not a ?er iou s one; this could not justly
be called a lie; but when the physician
arrives at the bedside of a person
dead, and he knowingly or wilfully
tells that the dead person is alive, that
would be called a lie. Why raise such
a howl about the Junior Senator when
the Senior Senator has been affiliating
with Populists, free silver Republicans,
middle-of-the-road and all other fac
tions for the sake of manipulating
South Carolina's vote on lb to 1 in his
vest pocket? Does the editor of the
Daily Mail remember the Senior Sena*
tor's first trip to St. Louis sometime in
1803 to find out where he was "At,"
and how three years later he boasted
openly that he carried South Carolina's
vote in his vest pocket? Does he re
member how in the last campaign in
this State the Senior Senator openly
insulted all the ministers of the Gospel
for the sake of defeating the anti-dis
pensary sentiment? Yet this Ben Gall
Tiger is to be worshipped and praised
for all these slanders, abuses, and most
unfounded charges he sees fit to inflict
on all who cut themselves loose from
his coat-tail. Honor to whom honov
may be due is a beautiful as well as a
just maxim, but it would bo unjust to
bestow it on one who in a representa
tive capacity misrepresents tho well
thinking, fair-minded, conservative
element of this State. One might un
dertake to defend his nephew "Jim"
with some grace on account of it being
his first offense, but his uncle "Ben"
hns a world-wide reputation as a slan
derer, better known ns the associate of
Mary E. Lease, Pitchfork, Miscarry
Nation & Co., and cannot be excused.
Now, ns to the other sentence of the
same article in tho Daily Mail wherein
the editor states : "He is perfectly safe
(speaking of McLaurin) in demanding
an investigation, for no direct proof of
bribery cnn be brought. If ho made a
deal the man with whom he made it is
dead, hut he hns Republican 'rocks' in
his possession all the same."
This is also one of the many vile in
sinuations, slanders and unjust charges
freely made use of by the Apostles of
Tillman when his and their infamy is
exposed, or rather when they have not
the manhood to admit, that ho or they
are wrong. Shame upon our civiliza
tion, that a citizen can with impunity
slander the dead when he knows that
the dead cannot defend himself.
It is not because Wm. McKinley was
President of the United States that the
offense of unscrupulous slander is
grnver than if it had been the humblest
citizen of this country, but because the
editor of tho Daily Mail knows that
Wm. McKinley cannot answor his
charges, even if they were true, that
he is making them all for the sake of
shielding his "Master." It is not only
unbecoming for any man to shift the
blame or responsibility to the. grave,
but irreligious, immoral and cowardly.
