TIUMAN AND ROOSEVELT.
The Herald and News has givex
a great 'deal of space to P'esiden
Roosevelt's charges against Senato
Tillman, and to Senator Tillman's re
ply. lIt seems to be evident that th4
,president harbors malice against Mr
Tillman, and it will take more thai
The charges which he has brought 44
destroy a reputation for sturdy hon
estly which 'has during' his term ii
the senate been accorded Mr. Tillmam
even by his bitterest political enemies
It is, however, very much to be re
gretted that Mr. Tillman, at his stagi
in life, has had even this suspipior
east upon him. While we in Soutl
Carolina do not believe that Mr. Till
man has done anything dishonest, ye
a great many regard it as unfortanat(
that he should have had any connee
tion at all with the transaction it
question, under the cireumstanoes.
The Herald and News h# sought t<
present both sides as fully as pos
sible, the matter having created 2
geat amount of interest throughou
-he -whole country.
Mhere ought #to be a full attend
ance at the good roads meeting it
Newberry tomorrow. This is one o:
the most important questions beforv
the people of Newberry county, vi
tally affecting directly the interest4
of every citizen of the county.
The general assembly has got dowr
to work. No date has yet been fixe6
tor the election of a successor t<
Chief Justice Pope. It seems to b
the gen4ral impression now that thi
legislature will promote one of the as
soeiate justices, and that an electior
will be neessary to fill the vacanq
caused by this promotion.
