As to Senator Tillman.
The News and Courier quotes Mr.
Charles H. Henry, -the vcry capabie
editor of the Spartanburg Journal.:'
who was a delegate to the democratic
state convention in Columbia last;
week, as Zaying that "the same local
and courthouse politicians who fawned
at the feet of the mighty Tillman and
responded to his slightest suggestion,
and acted only with his permission
and acquiescence., and loaded l-im with
honors and distinctions, are the same
men who ten years ago. and four
years ago. and even two years ago.
could not say enough of abuse con
cerning him, and could not sufficient
ly impugn his motives and malign
his purposes," and the News anu;
Courier remarks: "Mr. Henry missed
the opportunity of his life. He was a
member of the convention. and his
voice alone would have prevented
Mr. Tillman's election by acclama
tion as a delegate at large to St.
Louis, and if he- had only protested
against the slavish subservience or
the body to the will of Senator Till
man he would have saved the party
from the humiliaton of surrendering
itself completely and absolutely to
the unexpressed will of this domi
nant figure in the political life of the
All of which is very interesting.
There is no doubt in the world, ab
a matter of fact, that Senator Till
man had a very large influence in the
convention. That was plainly appar
ent to even the most casual observer.
But whatever opinion some may hold
of Senator Tillman, and however
much they have condemned him
in the past and maligned h:s
purposes and impugned his mo
tives, we believe it was due
him, as a recognition of some.
at least. of his services to South
Carolina. that he be sent as a delegate
at large to the St. Louis convcntion.
We do not believe it is ever the wis

The Newberry Herald and News
says that -the Hearst boom is dying
and will be buried by the St. Louis
convention. We shall nc+ object to
that if the coffin be built for two.
We have since changed our opinion.
We believe now the result will be ac
complished before the mieeting of i e
St. Louis convention.
The Japanese have now begun to
suffer reverses in their conflict with
Russia. The present indications seem
to be that the war will be in progress
for a good while yet.
