TILLMAN ON RACE PROBLEM.
Says He Would Lead Mob to Lynch
Any Man Who Had Assaulted
Birmingham, Ala., Dec. 29.
"Roosevelt does not kn*ow anything
about the negro and every time he
touches him he makes a mess of it.
He had no business discharging the
negro troops at Browns-ville before
making a careful investigation. I
doubt very much whether or not he
is vested with the authority to take
such matters in his own hands any
Thus spoke Senator Benjamin R.
Tillman today, after his arrival from
Dothan, Ala., where he spoke last
Senator Tillman addressed a large
audience here tonight, which cheered
the vigorous sentiments he expressed.
Th senator talked on the negro ques
tion largely and said that the white
men owe all their good qualities to
the women of their race.
''The negroes have not the women
possessing qualities which will make
them high minded and this has been
their greatest drawback."
Speaking of lynching, which he said
would continue as long as the crime
of rape continued, the senator ex
claimed: "With the oath on my lips
to uphold the law, I would lead a mob
any time to lynch a man, black or
white, who had ravished a woman."

Teddy Talks Big, But Foraker, Who
Wants to be President, Has Set
Out to Down Roos'evelt in
the Brownsville Affair.
Washingotn Cor. Columbia State.
) Senator Foraker is go.ing to raise
Cain when congress reconvenes about
this Brownsville busness. And let no
one think that the Ohio senator is not
able to do it. No matter what jus
~tice, what facts, or what public senti
ment the president may liave with 'him
in the fight, : Foraker, ''Fire-alarm
Foraker,'' is eminently adapted for
just such a performance as raising
Cain on the other side. He has been
raising 'Cain, in one way or another,
pretty miuch all these 23 years since
he was first candidate for governor of
Ohio. He' rp,ised Cain as governor and
he has raised Cain in the senate And
withal, strange as it may seem to
those who do not know him and have
never heard him,' he is one of the
mildest mannered, most unexcitable,
and altogether perhaps the calmest
man in the senate. He is the ablest
man in the senate. The ingenious
'special pleader'' Spooner, the pon
derous Bailey and the fiery Carmack,
to say nothing of~ the picturesque Till
man, are ai, ,times interesting.
(And in a parenthesis I am reminded
of dear old Paul Youmans, who once
resented some one's calling him ''in
teresting.'' ''Why, a monkey's inter
esting,'' he exclaimed.) Well, these
others are interesting, and I would
not 'deny them ability, but when it
comes to good all-round horse sense,
combined with an excellent cultiva
tion of mind and manner, a magni
fient gift of speech, especially as to
clearness and directions, and perhaps
above all, a delicate balance-''sense
of humor''some call this; it is in~
fact rather a sense of proportion
why, these others are easily outclassed
by this very same Mr. ''Fire-alarm''
Foraker, who is creating such a stir
all over the country, or rather who is
manipulating the spoon.
Foraker is Fascinating.
Onie can't help getting in a way a
little enthusiastic about Foraker. how
ever nmuh one mnay differ with him.
firLst time~ I met i:m was early last
spring. With a n.ewspper friend I
was strolling one Snday afternoon
around DuPont Circle-that's the
hihat eigborhood. We met Sen
ator Foraker about half way around
the circle. and as my friend knew him
well, I got the honor of an introdue
tion to the man who had been, to me,
the most faseinatinir man in the sen
ate, and to whom I had listened in
tently on every possible occasion, al
though, so far as a. newspaper corres
pondent can take sides or is supposed
to, nearly everything he said was di
rectly opposed to my view of things.
Senator Foraker turned and walked
back with us, and after a. most de
liglitful walk we escorted him to his
home-which is also in the hi,h hat
neighborhood. I told him that be had
been delightful to me and that I en
joyed him particularly because he had
such a magnificent and fascinating
way of saying what isn't so. At this
he laughed and I thought it was all
very fine. Since that time I have felt
it a high honor to have a speaking
acquaintance with him. And yet I
know that this very name is probably
obnoxious to many of my friends in
South Carolina, because he is "taking
up for the nigger." That's because
they don't know him.
Pleasant to Newspaper Men.
Senator Foraker is very pleasant to
newspaper men. He is altogether an
exceedingly pleasant man. -But he will
not talk to us about this Brownsville
matter now. Yesterday when some of
the boys went to see him he said that
he would do his talking in the senate
when that meets again. The presi
dent said to four newspaper men he
invited to visit him the other day that
he would veto any measure that con
gress might pass restoring the negro
troops who were dismissed for
''shooting up" Brownsville. He fur
thermore made the very remarkable
statement to the effect that if con
gress should pass a bill over his veto
he would refuse to execute it, and that
if congress shoul& then want to im
peach, him he would ,gladly welcome
the impeachment proceedings. This is
pretty big talk even for a president.
All that Senator Foraker will say
about this is the following:
''I think that the story about what
the president intends to do is too silly
to talk about, and you must excuse
me from discussing it.'"
An Interesting Fight.
There are sevearl little supplemen
tary circumstances which make this
an exceedingly interesting fight be
tween the president and Senator For
aker. In the first place Foraker has
not liked Roosevelt in a long time.
Mighty few people who know Mr.
Roosevelt well, in these parts at least,
do like him; or if th'ey ao like him to
day they don't tomorrow. The prin
ipal reason for this-and there are
a number of reasons- is that the
president has a way of promig one
thing and doing another, and another
little way of saying one thing and
when he is criticised for saying it
issuing a statement of denial, always
elaborating this statement so as to
include the more or less emphatic de
laration that the man who says he
did say so is a liar. But that isn't the
reason Foraker has it in for him just
at present. At least that isn't all of
the reason. Foraker wants to be
president, as everybody else does,
or most of us anyway. But Mr.
Roosevelt doesn 't want Mr. Foraker
to be, president. It- is said, a,nd some
people are easily enough duped to be
lieve it, that Roosevelt wants Taft to
president. Those who are on to the
game have a pretty strong conviction
that the astute manipulator and cal
ulator in the W,hite House already
knows that there is not a ghost of a
chance for Taft, for the reason that
he cannot carry Ohio, his own State.
Taft is a big man, but he is bigger
abroad than he is in his own state.
Forakei- is the big man in Ohio, as
was clearly shown last summer, when
some of his enemies tried to get the
state convention to snub him because
he dared to oppose the president on
the rate bill. Foraker got a tremen
dous endorsement, and the president's
adherents were made to look like 30
cents. But the president is for Taft
-nominally. He wanf.s the nomina
tion himself, and when it is clearly
shown at the last minute that Taft- is
impossible because he can 't carry his
own State, then there is nobody else
to turn to but Roosevelt. He may de
line it and go down in history as an
other Caesar who pushed aside the
etfown. He 's a pretty shrewd fellow,
is this man in the White House who
sits up there today eating turkey and
cranberry sauce between lectures on
the Ten Commandments.
Forak.er knows it. Foraker has a
sotit of an idea thhat Mr. T. R. is
something of a hypoorite. And he is
not afraid to sa~y so. Put that down.
Foi'ker isn 't afraid to'say anything.
He's wrong about this thinz of
uns. utho isn'"t heet,adh
s _' 7i . thordze. And he is go
nle Lo make t,he Brownsville affair an
exeedingly important little incident
before he gets through with it.
