Eloquent Tribute to Late Charleston
Editor-High Ideals And
The death of Mr. Carlyle McKin
ley, associate editor of the Charles
ton News and Courier, which occur
red in that city recently, is a loss to
American jou'rnalism. Mr. McKinley
had not made a wide popular reputa
tion, but he was a highminded; intel
ligent and capable editor. His rep
utation among the men who knew
him in his own profession was of a
kind which at:y man would prize:
for his ideals were high and his work
on a level with his ideals. Beginning
life as a Presbyterian mirister, he
formed a connection with the Char
leston News and Courier as an edi
torial writer twenty years ago. He
is best known to the public by "An
Appeal to P araoh," published in
1889, a plea Wr transporting the ne
groes of the United States to Africa,
which attracted a good deal of atten
tion at the time, but which was of
importance only as a serious argu
nient for an impossible solution. The
cyclone of 1885 and the earthquake
of the following year were treated by
him with intelligence and skill, but
he was best known by his poems and
miscellaneous essays. He was a man
of somewhat shy disposition, and the
world's acpuaintance with him was a
good deal limited by that shyness.
One of his poems, greatly enlarged
the circle of those who were ready
to appreaciate him. He was a skilled
workman, who put his heart into
what he did, and he leaves behind
him a highly honorable record.
A Friendship of Thirty Years.
Ex-Governor Chamberlain's tribute
to Mr. McKinley, coming to the of
fice of The News and -Courier, of
course, by wire, was not caught cor
rectly, and it is due the author to re
print the whole correctly:
To the Editor of The News and
Courier: Your personal telegram
tells me that Carlyle McKinley is
at rest. After incrediblt suffering,
long protracted, the worn.out body
finds peace; the brave, uncomplain
ing, brilliant spirit was always at rest
in the peace of God. Who that knew
him can find words, yet who that
knew. him can forbear words, to
speak their sorrow and love of this
great and gentle soul? I confess for
myself I cannot come near to utter
ing the "thoughts that arise in me."
When Thomas Carlyle wrote his
great prose monody over Edward Ir
ving, he exclaimed: "Edward Ir
ving's wvarfare is closed: if not in
victory, yet in invincibility and faith
ful endurance to the end." Of Carl
McKinley we can say that his war
~fare is closed with victory; victory

Our acquaintance was more than
thirty years old; never broken, never
;seriously or for long distrubed or in
termitted. It was his lot, as well
as mine, to bear part in the sto-m2
and stress period of politics in South
Carolina. Where the fight was hard
est, his white plume rode fearless.
But howv often after the roar of bat.
tIe did I hear his clear voice telling
me of his love and respect. Loyal,
utterly loyal to his cause, in which
he profoundly believcd, and for which
he was ready to risk or lose his life,
he was loyal, too, to his friends of
another faith whom he trusted.
Faded and fading memorials of his
loyalty lie before me as I now write.
but to me they are fadeless and im
McKinley was in the full sense of
the term a man of genius: he has left
us the wvritten proofs of his gemius.
but none equal to what are unwritten
in the hearts and memories of his
inimate friends. The open.g lines
of his great tribute to Henry Timrod
come to me now, as true of him as
"Harp of the South! no more, no
Thy silvery strings shall quiver:
The one strong hand might win thy
Is chilled and stilled forever."
This quick, unstudied tribute to
the memory of one so lovely, so
strong, is all I can pay now. To his
family, his kin after the flesh, what
can we say to soothe their grief or
assuoa their sorrow? Again, poetry,
which he loved and illustrated, comes
to my mind, and I give to those
loved ones the lofty and sweet words
of Keats, changing but one word.
"He cannot fade, though thou hast
not thy bliss:
Forever wilt thou love, and he be

The Looting of Restaurants.
New York Press.
This is the time of the year
when hotels and restaurants, as well
as department stores, are taking ac
count of stock. One of the heaviest
charges on the page devoted to profit
and loss in the restaurants can be
traced directly to the mania of the
average New Yorker for collecting
souvenirs. The loss from breakage
of dishes in a fashionable restaurant
or cafe is small compared with the
loss from this peculiar form of klep
A restaurant which is particularly
popular with residents of Central
Park West has suffered extensively
in this way. and when the annual ac
count of stock was taken the pro
prietors determined to select for the
new furnishings of the table as many
unmarked articles as possible. At
one time they had their monogram on
all the silverware, the glasses, many
of the dishes and the matchsafes, all
of which disappeared. As an ex
perirnent they brought plain white
corrugated matchsafes, such as can
be bought by the dozen in the 5 and
io cent stores, and immediately pa
trons of the cafe seemed to lose in
terest in matchsafes which lacked in
dividuality. Their coffee service in
cluded small pitchers about two
inches high in a good quality of
quadruple plate, bearing the firm's
monogram, and these were replaced
by plain composition ware which re
sembled both aluminum and nickle.
Here, too, there was less difficulty in
retaining their property.
Several weeks ago at this same res
taurant a firm which was putting out
a new brand of tobacco distributed
sample bottles set in small individ
ual casters of silver plate. Eighteen
of these were presented to the cafe
and placed on as many tables for
trial 6ne Saturday night. After
rush hours over, about I a. in., the
proprietor made the rounds of these
tables with a view of leaning how
much of the tabasco sauce had been
used and what comments the waiters
had heard about it. The most im
portant fact impressed upon his mind
during his tour was that out of 18
little silver casters exactly 3 remain
ed. In four instances the pretty
holder and the tobasco bottle had dis

and restaurants try to stop this po
lite pillage, but unfortunately they
lack the co:operation of their waiters.

livious to the fact that guests are slip
ping bits of silver and table furnidI

Dear Sir: What is lumber worth?
"Depends on the lumber." you say

That's how some people talk about

best paint put on as it ought to be."
That's Devoe: but the usual answer
is: "I want a good job: but I want it
