WADF. HAMPTON IS DEAD!
The above simple announcement,
flashed over the wires in the early
hours of thc morning of Friday, April
11th, carried sorrow to the hearts of
the people cf South Carolina, of thc
people of tho South at large and of
many others who knew and admired
and loved the dead chieftain.
Wade Hampton was born in Char
leston, o. C., on March 28, 1818. His
father was Col. Wade Hampton, who
served on the staff of Gen. Jackson
in thc war of 1812, and he in turn
was thc son of Gen. Wade Hampton,
a Colonel in the war of 'tho Involu
tion and a General in the war of 1812.
Gen. Hampton's motlier wa^. a Miss
Fitzsiinrnon.s. Ile was twice married;
his first wife was a sister of thc fam
ous orator, Wm. Preston, and his
last wife was a daughter of Governor
McDuffic, To each of these marriages
were born three children: a" those of
the first marriage being dead, and all
those of thc second marriage hoing
alive. His gallant young son, Pres
ton, was killed in battle in the civil
Gen. Hampton graduated at the
South Carolina College, and, after
pursuing a course of stutiy in law,
took up the businesst of planting, he
being the owner of largo landed estates
and slaves in South Carolina and in
Mississippi. Ile served while a young
man in thc Legislature, but sought
no other political office. Whilst he
was a firm believci in tho Democratic
doctrine of State sovereignty, he was
opposed to that of secession. Never
theless, as soon aa tho State had
taken that. step ho promptly sot about
rnising that body of troops known :is
tho Hampton Legion, which, under
his command and that of other lead
ers, achieved undying fame in tho
war that followed. Ile rapidly roso
to bo Brigader-'Goncral and Mujor
'Gencral, and after the death of Gen. i
J. B. E. Stuart was mado Lieutenant
General and put in command of all
tho cavalry of Lee's army. But his
deeds of prowess and his farno as a
soldier are writ large in the book of
history, and aro known of all men.
When tho war ended he returned to
his planting, but tho results of tho
war had impoverished him and he did
There is scarcely a child who has
not heard from the lips of those who
participated in it under his matchless
leadership tho story of Gen. Hamp
ton's redemption of South Carolina
from the degradation of Radical rulo
in 1876. No such bloodless revolu
tion was ever wrought before-so
momentous in the events of the time,
so stupendous in the results which
flowed from its successful consum
mation. To tho abiding confidence
of the people in Hampton, to his own
clear judgment, cool head and wiso
foresight must bo ascribed the honor
of this victory of peaceful methods
over force, power and corruption.
.Gen. Hampton was elooted to the
United States Senate in 1879 and ser
ved for twelve years. His services in
this body was marked by that same
calm equipoise of temperament and
judgment which have ever been char
acteristic of the man. Without os
tentation or display, with no effort to
dazzle, he yet, by the force of his
rounded and symmetrical character,
his great good sense, and judgment
acquired great influence in that body.
In 1890 tho Tillman movement swept
over this Stato with the power and
march of the destructivo force of a
prairie fire. In the lutft and greed of
office born of this movement, it was
determined that every man in office
must go, even Hampton, the soldier,
the patriot, thc tribuuo of tho people,
the saviour of the State, and there
were found euough men in the Gen
eral Assembly of Routh Carolina to
perpetuate the deed. He was defeat
ed in 1SU1 by John L. M. Irby. In
1893 he was appointed on the United
States Railroad Commission by Presi
dent Cleveland, and was succeeded in
1898 by Gen. Longstreet.
Gen. Hampton's defeat for the Sen
ate wounded him to the heart, not be
cause he sought office (ho never nad
done that), but because it seemed to
shuw that his people, for whom ho
had shed his blood in war, for whom
ho had sacrificed his enormous for
tune, for whom he had endangered
his life and liberty to redeem them
from alien rule, had repudiated him
and lost confidence in him, and this
thought embittered for a time his
life. But beforo he died he came to
know that the great heart of the peo
ple, freed from the domination of
politioal schemers and freed from
the blinding passion of partisan fury,
beat true in its loyalty and allegiance
to him. And BO peace came to him;
\ and he forgave them all; and the great
epulj at peace with God and man
wont forth i-;t-? t';? . other life with
i tho culm IUI i simple ; i !i of an i ? ? i o -

THE PRESIDENT IN CHARLESTON.
Tho visit of President Roosevelt to
the Exposition at Charleston on thc
'.?th inst, was a notable occasion in thc
history of the State, and it requires
very little political sagacity or depth
of observation to sec that beneficent
results, far-reaching in their eilect,
will follow thc cordial meeting, face
to face, of the President and thc
thousands of representativo .Southern
people who assembled to greet him.
To correctly determine the principles
which actuate men, wc must come in
touch with them, hear them, sec them.
For many years such on opportunity
in this State has been neglected by
thc Pr?sidents ol' the United States,
and influences which must have
brought about a greater and speedier
prosperity, better understanding and
better feelings, have been allowed to
go uncultivated. Rut President
Roosevelt has honored South Carolina
by his presence and by expressions
which undoubtedly arose fron? a good
ness of heart and thc strongest desire
possible for the general welfare; and
in turn he was honored by South
Carolina and representativo men from
neighboring States in a manner in
keeping with the high position ho oc
cupies. His May in Charleston Wai
one continuous ovation, !>iiToreucc
of political creed were forgotten foi
the time, aud thc chief delight of al
was found in doing him honor and ac
cording him a wann, hearty welcome
lt wa? an occasion that will alway;
be remembered by those present am
will bo talked of for years to come
Tho President'.: speech was appro
priate, fi ce from sectional feeling
broad and appreciative, and those win
heard it were inspired with new hop*
for the material advancement an<
prosperity of the South.
The presentation of the elegant
jeweled sword to Maj. Micah Jeukin
by President Roosevelt, who was hi
colonel in thc war with Spain, was ai
interesting and pleasant incident o
the onoasion. The remarks made b;
tho President could not have beei
moro delightfully expressed. The;
clearly indicated the high esteem ii
whioh ho holds tho gallant young sol
dicr South Carolina is delighted t
j honor by the gift of this handsom
sword, and the pleasant feelit-gs en
I tcrtaiued for tho President were mad
i stronger by his felicitous remarks.
Tho visit of President Roosevelt t
tho Exposition was encouraging au
helpful to those in charge of tin
great enterprise. They havo b?en ur
tiring in their efforts to make the Es
position a success, and, so far at: th
exhibits arc concerned, it is a gran
success. Those who have undertake
tho responsibility of this move.nen
aro steadfast in their faith in the rt
suits sought-rapid and permanen
prosperity. The visit of the Pres
dent stamps the efforts made wit
highest approval. It has had th
effect to greatly encourage the hop
that sectional Hoes arc no longer t
militate against the progress of tb
South, and that wo have at the bea
of the nation a man who, though di:
feriog in political creed, is broa
enough, honest enough and has til
courage to work for the prosperity <
every section-the South as well t
