Senator Tillman says that he was
misquoted in his remarks as to com
pulsory education and the education
of the negro, saying now that he is
"not opposed to negro education,
provided it is of the right kind.'" The
senator, however, goes on to say:
"We have disfranchised every nep
ro we could under the 15th amend
ment, and the only instrumentality
available now to require an educa
tional qualification. There is now an
agitation in South Carolina for com
pulsory education. That would mean a
heavy burden to provide more schools,
whieh the white tax payers would
have to bear if there was no discrim
ination against the negro on account
of race or color. Henee we would
present the spectacle of educating the
negro at a very heavy expense to hur
ry forward the contest for supre
macy between the two races as soon
as we should have given them the nee
essary qualifications to vote.'"
The trouble with Senator Tillman's
argument is that it entirely overlooks
. the fact that the negroes are today se
curing all the education they can ob
tain, while many white children awre
being kept from school. In Newber
ry county, for instance, there are
twice as -many negro children at
school as whites. South Carolina
needs a compulsory education law,

Mr. John Hawkins, whose sad death

a man of sensitive tenperment, high

ently he was a botauist-a. South
Carolina. and particularly a Newberry
county Agassiz. It was our god for
tune once to leaf through a volume of
several thousand pages containing ink
sketehes-natural size--wit1 the bo'a
nical and every-day names'and ae
curae descriptions, ->f every flower,
herb, plant and weed native to this
county's soil. This is in manuseript,
and neatly bound by hand. Mr. Haw
kins loved children an flov:ers. and
the fact that his grave was complete
ly hidden by his favorite flower, the
violet, was very comforting to those
who knew him best.' His body was
brought from Columbia on the even
ing train Monday, ed taken to the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Hunter,
with whom he has lived for the last
five years.- By request of these life
long friends his body reposed there
until Tuesday morning. The inter
ment was in the St. Luke's cemetery,
where he had expressed a desire to be
buried-and a very natural wish it
was as the greater and happier por
tion of !his life had been spent in that
community. To his comrade, Mr.
Thompson Hunter, he left his invalu
able botany. Mr. Hawkins is surviv

THE SEABOARD AIR LINE.
Rumored That Harriman Came Sout]
With View of betting Control
A Washington dispatch to the Cc
lumbia State under date of Monda;
It is being breathed about here tc
day that the trip of Mr. E. H. Harri
man, America's Napoleon of tram
portation, to the South at this tim
has to do with his efforts to get poc
session of the Seaboard Air Line.
Mr. Harriman was in Washingto:
yesterday, spending several minute
to hours here, closeted in his rooT
at the hotel. Then as mysteriousl
he departed and report comes fror
Augusta. this afternoon that he is es
pected there. Mr. Harriman is a mys
terious man at tim-es.
The last time he was in Washing
ton he told me he came to show hi
10-year-old boy, Rolaid, the city, an
that Roland was especially interestei
in the animal heads on the walls o
the president's private apartment a
the White House. That was jus
prior ,o Roland's father's dramati
initiation into the Anania; club, an<
this time Roland did not take a lool
at the fascinating animal heads. Mi
Harriman now owns in hes own nam
a little over $154,000.000 worth o
stock in the big railroads of thi
country, nearly 10 t.imes as much a
any other man and this does not in
elude holdings in numerous subsidiar;
railroads. He does not come t
Washington for nothing, and he doe
noe go South for his health. He con~
trols the Illinois Central railroad i,
the Middle West.
The Illinois Central's chief com
petitor is the Louisville & Nashvilk
which is ma.gged by the same grou1
as t.he Atlantic Coast Line. It wonh
be an advantage for the Illinois Cen
tral to hav'e in the Southeast the Sea
board Air Line. which is the chie
competitor of the Atlantic Coas
Line. The Seaboard is now in th
hands of receivers, but the recen
statement of its earnings give the im
pression that it is not in such poo
condition as has been reported. It!
stock has recently had a slight rise ii
