After being at the Tillman Volun
teer's picnic all day Friday, Senator
Tillman went down the street Friday
night and listened to the music at
the band concert. This shows that
the Senator has considerable reserve

very much assured since Gen. Wood
has assured them that the big guns

Ser ator Piaynter, who has just quit
the rt.ce for re-election in Kentucky,
is a follower of Senator Bailey; he
voted for Lorimer; he was a candi
date ior re-election. He retired from
the rice before the primary. It is
thoucht Bailey will meet a similar
fate ia Texas.
Th'> statement of the State Board
of Education in reference to the book
adoption, which we publish on the
?first page, gives a different view to
the natter. In fact, it looks to us
like t knocks State Superintendent,
of Education Swearingeh out of
the box. Read the statement. *
The concensus of opinion among
the people is that eighteen hundred
dollars for nine months work is a
fine salary for the superinteudent of
the schools of this city. When we
take into consideration that the par
ents of two-thirds of the children who
attend the schools do not receive one
half that amount for a whole year's
work we fully agree with the people.*
W? believe it is the desire of a
large* majority of the people of South
Carolina that Senator Tillman re
main in the United States Senate un
' til he sees fit to retire. That being
the case, those gentlemen who have a
long ng eye on Ms seat may as well
curb their ambition, because the Sen
ator is going to be re-elected whether
he actively enters the campaign next
year or not !
A proposition to elect the trustees
of the graded school by ballot In
stead of the present plan, has been
commended on all sides. One man
said he was tired of having those
personally interested in the matter
picking out the trustees thev wanted
elected and then ramming them down
the throats of the people in a cut and
dried meeting, and that the change
could not come too soon for the ben
efit of the schools. *
As compared with the other book
contracts, we consider the one recent
ly adopted by the State Board of Ed
ucation as most advantageous to the
people in the long run. The fact
tha: some of the books adopted cost
a little more than the ones they dis
place is no proof that the people
wili loose money by the change. Some
of the old books displaced were very
poorly bound, and* should never have
been adopted. The people who had
to buy them know this, and they will
welcome a better book, even if the
first cost is a few cents more, as
the higher priced book will be the
cheapest in the long run.
While all this fuss is being made
ovtr the school book adoption, we
would advise the people to keep their
eyes on a bill that was introduced in
the Legislature last winter, which
has the endorsement of State Super
intendent of Education Swearingen.
Should that bill become a law the
people would have no more to say
about tteir schools than the man In
the moon. It lodges all authority In
the State Superintendent's hands,
who would appoint all school officials
frcm the highest to the lowest. This
is one of the most centralizing meas
ures ever proposed in South Carolina,
and we would advise the people to
se>> that it does not become a law.
State Superintendent of Education
Svearingon poses as an economist in
ths adoption of school books, yet he
wiirmly advocates the adoption of a
sciool law for South Carolina that
would entail thousands of dollars of
additional expense each year on the
people, and at the same time take
all voice in the management of the
schools out of their hands. The pro
posed lav,- jreates several new offi
cers at high salaries, and raises the
salaries of all existing officers. Un
der it the people would have to pay
a hundred thousand dollars or more
etch year in addition to what they
now pay to the supervlsary schooi
oficials. Besides all this, the law vir
tually makes the State Superinten
dent of Education a dictator so far
as; all school matters are concerned.
All school officials, from the highest
to the lowest, are appointed by him
<??? those he appoints, and are there
fore under his control. i
A Republican on Bryanism.
"When Bryan began running for
president he was an impossible can
date, although none of us thought so
during the first half of that memora
ble 1896 campaign," 3ays the Sioux
City Journal, a strong Republican
paper. "The country had been in the
habit of looking to a third party for
such radicalism as Bryan then induc
ed the democratic party to stand for.
Business was thoroughly freighton
ed when it found one of the two
great parties taking up the theories
of populism. It administered to the
Bryan leadership an emphatic and
comprehensive rebuke. The defeat
did not, however,* kill Bryan or his
influence with the democratic party.
"He was back at the front again,
in 1900 and again the fear of bis rad
icalism worked his undoing. The pass
ing of Bryan was duly recorded, and
it was cheerfully assv.med thaf'Bry
anism," as it was then called, was
dead for all time. Bui. Bryan was not
dead. He slept through the cam
paign of 1904, when his party again
took th e conservative side of the
street, but that year the country went
radical by a large majority, to the
profit of Roosevelt By that time the
seeds of radicalism planted by Bryan
were beginning to put forth blossoms.
Roosevelt saw it, and Bryan saw it.
"Looking back one is inclined to
marvel that Bryan was not elected in
1908. Evidently he was defeated
partly through force of habit and
partly because of confusion in the
minds of the voters. The public got
Taft and Roosevelt mixed. Roose
velt had stirred up A great wave of
enthusiasm for the Bryan policies.
Taft was offered as the Roosevelt
candidate. Taft was a natural con
servative, or at most a moderate. The
republican platform in the main was
conservative. In spite- of the fact that
Bryan, the original radical, was bid
ding for votes on a really radical
democratic platform, a good share of
the radical vote went trailing after
the Roosevelt .band. 'Bryan had been
sure of election. He was dazed over
the outcome, and in the light of af
ter events it really was amusing.
"No sooner had Taft assumed the
Presidency than .the country began
clamoring that he f.ct just as Bryan
would have been expected to act. The
country demanded, not the tar
iff revision promised in the republi
can platform, but the kind promised
by Bryan. Taft tried to get through
a national railroad regulation meab
ure, ,but the radioals would have
none of it. They wanted such a
measure as Bryan would have ap
proved. Presently all the progres
sive magazine and newspapers were
criticising Taft. jJven his sponsor,
Roosevelt turned his back against
him. Why? Because Taft was not
radical enough?because, in other
words, he was not like Bryan. The
radicals in the republican party split
away from the Taft leadership and
voted with Bryan's party in Congress.
The republican party in many states
fell into a state of disorganization
that made democratic victory last
fall. There was every indication
that the criticism of Taft had popular
sympathy. What did this mean ex
cept that this country had made a
mistake in electing Taft instead of
Bryan, the real radical?
"Since the ferment Taft has been
trying to make himself more radical.
Hie has succeeded only indifferently.
He will be renoninated next year,
and will be supported hy the conser
vative element. With this as near to
a political certainty as anything can
well be in politic* a year in advance
of its occurrence, the democratic par
ty is looking for & sure enough radi
cal to oppose Taf.. If it can get the
right man It confidently believes he
can ,be elected over Taft by as large
a majority as Taft had over Bryan in
the confused campaign of 1908. The
talk now is that Wood row Wilson is
the right man it he can secure the
endorsement of Bryan. Wilson Is a
former conservative who turned
radical after radicalism had been
made fashionablo through the inia
tive of Boryan.
"Here again ws are up against the
proposition that Bryan has been
thrice nominated and thrice defeated.
But his first two defeats were due to
the fact that he was running at the
wrong time. His radicalism was far
ahead of the public temper. His
last defeat was a mistake on the part
of the public ra.'.her than a mistake
in nominating Tryan. In 1908 the
public did not realize how radi
cal it was. But now the times have
caught up with Bryan. The atmos
phere has cleared. The seed Bryan
sowed is bearing fruit. Folks eat it
eagerly when offered by Roosevelt or
La Follette or Wilson or Champ
Clark. They berate Taft .because he
doesn't give them more of it. They
Insist that nothing shall prevent them
from having a real radical for Presi
dent after 1912."
Habit of Saving.
The advice given to its employes
by one of the leading railroads to cul
tivate the habit of saving by setting
apart a small sum of money each day
Is commendable. While the condi
tions of life in this country may not
call for such minute economy as Is
necessary In European countries,
there Is. after all, a great need of
thrift. Americans are a spendthrift
people and oftentimes the results are
disastrous. Much poverty and distress
and many a domestic tragedy would
b."> prevented ii' families were more
economical. The pendulum swings in
business just a:> in other things, and
I the extreme of prosperity is Invari
I nbly followed sooner or later by a
reaction. Ther., when it is too late,
many people lament and suffer be
cause they did not save when it was
within their power.
Coming Democratic Leader.
The Washington correspondent oi
the Springfield Republican, a most
discriminating observer of national
politics, declare; that in the impromp
tus debate recently, on the Gore mo
tion to instrucr. the finance commit
tee to repoit promptly the wool and
free list bills, Senator John Sharjj
Williams easily carried off the hon
cts and gave promise of becoming
the real, if not the nominal, Demo
cratic leader in the senate. The Co
lumbia Record says "a careful read
ing of the debate as reported in the
Congressional Record will convince
one that this estimate of the Mis
sissippi senator's effort and ability
is not over enthusiastic. The usual
ly dry pages of the official record have
not in recent years contained many,
if any, as delightfully satirical and
yet logical dissections of a subject as
Senator Williams' analysis of pro*
tection. His is a master mind; he
possesses a remarkable faculty of
analysis and his wide familiarity with
the best literature is drawn upon for
the embellishment of whatever he
bus to say. In the senate he shoula
fad an arena much more suited than
the house to his Btyle of debate."

The Times and Democrat has sev

all other white papers in Orangeburg
Mrs. Elizabeth Ann Ulmer was
born October 12th 1850 and departed
this life April 10th 1911. She leaves
behind to revere her sacred niemory
a devoted and affectionate husbanu,
two dutiful sons, two faithful daugh
ters, and a host of relatives and
friends. Mrs. Ulmer was a faithful
member of the Four Holes Baptist
Church, a member of the Woman's
Missionary society. She was ever
ready for every good word and work.
Her church she loved, and for its wel
fare she prayed and labored. Indeed
she was loyal and true in all the re
lationships of life. Her home life
was a life of beautiful service and de
votion to the comfort, happiness and
welfare of her husband and children.
Like her Lord her consuming desire
was to serve, and not to be served.
Like Mary of Bethany she did what
she could as a devoted and loving
wife and as a fond and affectionate
mother, for "days and weeks she sat
by the bedside of her sick and suffer
ing daughter Mrs. Minnie Burke, who
preceeded her only a few days to the
beautiful city of God. She refused to
leave her sick and suffering child by
day or night, staying by her to ad
minister such comfort and cheer as
only a devoted and fond, mother
could, and from the sick room of her
sainted daughter she went to nurse
the sick in the home of her sister,
and returning home just before day
one damp chilly night this unselfish
child of God contracted a cold which
soon developed into pneumonia. Al
ready she was exhausted from days
and weeks of constant service and
anxiety and loss of sleep the end soon
came, and the angels that were hov
ering around bore her pure Spirit to
the Paradise of God. Mrs. Ulmer's
life was sacrificed in loving service
to others. She fought the good fight.
She was faithful unto death and now
she has gone to hear from ner Mas
ter's lips the welcome plaudit "Well
done good and faithful servant." The
funeral services were conducted by
her pastor, Rev. B. M. Foreman; the
church was filled to overflowing with
her relatives and friends who had
gathered to pay their respects to the
memory of one who had made her
life beautiful and sublime by the sin
cerity of her heart, the sweetness of
her disposition, and by unselfish con
secration to her home, community
and church. Her remains were ten
derly laid away in the Four Holes
Cemetery near the church she so de
votedly loved. Blessed are the dead
that die in the Lord. Let me die
the death of the righteous and let
my last end be like His. Not dead, not
dead but only gone before to the lane,
where the sun forever shines and the
flowers forever bloom.
Dearest loved-one thou hast left us
And oiir loss we deeply feel,
But 'tis God that hath bereft us;
He can all our sorrow heal.
Yet again we hope to meet thee
When the day of life is fled,
Then in Heaven with joy to greet thee
Where no farewell tear is shed.
One Who Knew Her.
Mrs. Minnie F. Boirke, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Frank L. Ulmer, was
born March 29th, 1877 and :fell
asleep in Jesus March 17th, 1911.
She leaves behind a husband, Mr. C.
L. Burke and four sweet little chil
dren to revere her memory. While
quite young she joined the Four
Holes Baptist 'Church and to the day
of her death she was one of its m ost
faithful members. A devoted moth
er, a loving wife, an affectionate
daughter, and a consistent ChristSan.
As a faithful Christian she let her
light shine In the home, in the com
munity, and in the church until the
death angel came to take her to her
Father's home on high. Mrs. Burke
suffered a great deal during her last
sickness which brought to a close
her precious earthly life, but during
it all she was sustained by the daily
presence of her Lord. The very
peace of God that passeth all under
standing was in her heart. Yea her
very soul was filled from day to day
with the light of heaven. She realiz
ed that death was but the voice of
Jesus to call her to his arms. Before
6he breathed her last she called all
the members of her family to her
bedside and bade them all an "affec
tionate "Good-bye," and tenderly
and earnestly exhorted them all to
meet her in Heaven, and while she
thus talked, one who stood by
said her face did actually shine as
the face of an angel. To such a ons
there is no such thing as death, but
simply a change of conditions, a
change of homes. The earthly for
the heavenly. For we know if this
earthly house of our tabernacle were
dissolved, we have a building of God
a house not made with hands, eter
nal in the heavens. Servant of God
well done rest from thy blest em
Minnie thou was mild and lovely,
Gentle as the summer breeze,
Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it floats among the trees.
Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in the grave so low;
Thou no more wilt join our numoer,
Thou no more our earthly songs shall
know. A friend.
