He Talks About Politics and His Lec
tures.-He Discusses Carey
News and Courier.
+olumbia, September 2.-Senator
B. R. Tillman spent today in the
city, this being his first visit to Co
lumbia in several months. He came
over from his home at Trenton to at
tend a meeting of a committee of the
Clemson college trustees, but as only
one other member of the committee
was present at the appointed hour,
the senator spent most of the day at
the hotel, conversing with friends.
Few kiie. that he was in town, as he
arrived home, accompanied by Mrs.
Tillman, only last Friday night from
his lecturing tour in the west.
The senator talked interestingly
he always talks interestingly-and on
a variety of subjects to this corres
pondent today at Wright's Hotel.
"How do you find things in South
Carolina, Senator," was asked by the
"Well, I've just got home and
have 4een only a few friends here and
there, and don't know what's been
Speaking of prohibition he said:
"You can say I'm for prohibition
against any form of license, young
man," declared Senator Tillman very
emphatically. "I don't know how this
Carey-Cothran law is working, but I
have told the people of the state
that if you can't watch one big dis
pensary and keep out stealing you
can't watch thirty of them.
"By the way," said the Senator,
turning interrogator, "what's become
of those stripes they were going to
put on the grafters last year? Has
anybody been arrested yet? Any war
rants sworn out at all? You remem
ber that I said those pre-eleetion. pro
mises last year were all humbug.
There was bound to be something rot
ten where there was so much smell,
out th8y .1n't seem te be doin:r any
fhing 9L--ut it."
It was stated to the senator that the
r"ispe-i Ey windirg up commission
had held up the claims of a number
of whiskey houses to the state dis
pensary, and that there might be
something doing when this commis
sion got the information.
"They might as well look for evi
dence in the Atlantie Ocean,'' was
the senator's comment.
When asked if he thought there
would likely be an effort made to
pass a state prohibition law next year
he replied that the time might not be
ripe then for such a law. "It de
pends a great deal,'' said the senator,
"on whatt the governor, Mr. Ansel,
does; if he does not do anything to
make himself ,unpopular he will get
a second term, you know.''
Senator Tillman said that he had
been working hard on 'his lepture
tour, but, said he, "I enjoy preach
ing the gospel of white supremacy to
those miserable ignoramuses up north.
Yes, I get enough out of it to com
pensate me for the work.
"I find about four-fifths of the
crowds with me on the race question
everywhere I go. The politicians are
the ones who oppose my views. I have
taken a number of hand primaries
and most of them are more unaimous
than any I have taken in South Car
"No, I am not permitted to talk
politics in my lectures, I am confined
to the race question by my contracts,
but That is really the only question
that divides this country, it has divid
ed the north and south for the last
fifty years,. and if it wasn't for the
negro they could get together.
"Of course, the fight between Taft
and Foraker is the one matter of in
terest in the west, especially in Ohio.
I haven't got anything to say about
that, however, for when I say any
thing about Foraker it will be where
I have him face to face. I challenged
him twice to joint debate, but he

a deadlock in the Republican conven
tion which will result in them turning
to Theodore Roosevelt as the one hon
est man left in the world; then they
will ask him to save the country. The
nomination will be presented to him
on a silver platter.
"Well. you know I have for a long
time been in favor of putting a South
ern man on the ticket for Vice-Presi
dent instead of nominating these
broken-down millionaires who don't
add anything to the ticket but bad

"Well. Mr. Bryan is a very popu
lar man an id can command thie votes
of a number of Republicans,'' said
dhat Scnator Tillman still thinks

uation within the Democratic party.
Senator Tillman will spend this
week at his home at Trenton and will
then start out on another lecture
tour o.f fifty lectures, carrying him
through Colorado and other western
states and the Facifie coast. He is
looking hale and hearty, and the work
apparently agrees with him as well as

LITTLE GIRL OUTRAGED.
Young Daughter of Abbeville Farm
er a Negro Boy's Victim.
News and Courier.
Abbeville, September 2.-Tillman
Beack, a negro boy of 13 years of
age was committed to jail this morn
ing, charged with rape. His victim is
the six-year-old daughter of Dewitt
Hall, a respectable farmer, living
near Level Land, in the upper section
of the county.
Mr. Hall yesterday took his older
children to ehureh, leaving his wife
at home with the little girl Und a boy
of four years of age. The negro boy'
lived on Mr. Hall's plantation and
often played with the Hall children,
and yesterday he was playing with
them in a cotton house near the yard.
The crime was here committed.
Afterwards the negro carried the
child to a nearby stream and tried to
wash away all traces of his crime.
The little girl came back to the yard
crying, but would not tell her motbei
of the offense until last night when
she was being dressed for retirement.
when the mother discovered the

lynching, but the youth of the defend.
ant and the prompt action of the mag
istrate and his constable, Mr. John
Wilson, prevented this.
The negro will be tried at this term
of the court, which is now in session,
with Judge Gary presiding.

The Story of a Church Twice Struck
The congregation in a hilly dis
trict in Ohio, says the Youth's !Com
panion, brought a small tract of land
and erected a church upon it. Then
the question of insurance came up.
Mr. Sipes, the wealthiest member,
who had contributed more than half
the money needed for the new strme
ture, declared that he did not believe
in insurance. "This is the Lord's
building. He'll take care of it,'" he
His view prevailed and there was
no insurance. In a few weeks the
building was struck by lightning and
almost totally consumed by fire. An
other one was erected, Mr. Sipes con
tributing the greater portion of the
fund as before. This time the demand
was almost unanimous that it be in
sured, but Mr. Sipes again objected
on the same ground.
"If it burns down again, breth
ren,' he said, "Ill agree to rebuild
Again he carried his point. In less
than a month the new church was
strck by lig'htning again, and al
though strenuous efforts were made
to save it, the loss was almost total.
" There must be some reason for
this, brethren,'' said Brother Sipes.
"I am going out to find out what it
Thereupon he employed a fore of
men to sink a shaft on the side of
the twice destroyed church. Within
a few days a rich vein of ore was
found, and the church property was
sold for many times the amount need
ed to buy land in another locality and
"I tell you brethren,'' said Broth
