of the Tillman days in South

J. Hemphill, a lawyer of this
,to be one of the District com
sioners to succeed Henry L. West.
names are under consideration
r this place, that of Hemphill and
former Governor Merriman of Min
Discussing the question of wheth
er Senator Tillman would fight
Hemphill's nomination if 'the latter
is appointed, the Washington Even
ing Star says: "There was talk on
the streets to-day that the nomina
tions of Merriman and Hemphill, if
i de, will be fought in the Senate,
probably by influential Sensators. The
old Tillman and 'Anti-Tillman feud
in South Carolina may be revived by
a possible fight on Mr. Hemphill by
the Senator. The South Carolina
Senator who is a member of the
Senate committ'ee on appropriations,
and of the sub-committee of that
committee handling District 'appro
priations, is reported to have de
clared that Mr. Hemphill is a poll
tax paying registered voter and citi
zeu. of his State. Mr. Hemphill comes
from an influential- family in South
Carolina, and the majority of its
members have b'een bitterly hostile
to SenYator Tiliman for many years.
In the absence of Senator Tillman it
would probably be u4air to -say
whether or not he would hold up the
,nomination of Mr. Hemphill if the
President sends it to the Senati, b'ut
it.is not unlikely that considerable
delay would be occasioned on other
grounds. The Senate invariably up
holds such matters for the purpose
of making necessary investigations.
The indications -at this time are that
Mr. Hemphill will receive' the ap
The Taft Reform Tariff-UPwards.
For The Herald and News.
"Taft is all right, is he not Mr.
--" The writer was greeted thas
on approaching a few gentlemen en
gaged in earnest conversation.
-Whence this delusion? It must
be aborn of the ,alternate perversion
of facts and silence as to the other
facts on the part of the press de
pendent/ for the general news on the
great Trust styled the Asesociated
- Press, which works in the interests
of its masters, that are also the pres
ident 's masters-"The People?"
Not on -your life-The Big Interests.
The conversation alluded to seemed
to turn on the high taciff. That gen
tlemen of a high order of intelligence
euld entertain the idea of Taft be-.
ig "all right " on it~ can only be~
~acounted for as abovef We might
qualify by saying Disciples of De
Mr. Taft went before the people
for election under the solemn pledge
*to reform the tariff downward. This
he could do because the Party plat
form on which he stood declared the
same. Yet both went bacek on their
pledges to the people. The party
in Congress revised the Dingiey
shedule upward and the presidernt
approved. He went ito office on,
if not in fact by a fraud-and it is
logical to conclude that he ,will con
*tinue to uphold frauds at the be
hest of'party leader~s in the interest
of the Trusts. x.
Henry Clay in frami::g his great
compromise bill (ihimself an advo
ate of protection) .yielded to the de
mads of South Carolina in nuliifi
e ation, an~d provided for a reduction
'of duties to go into immediate effeet,
and further annual reductions, so
that in ten years the United States
was brought to a solid basis of a tar
if for revenue only. Mr. Clay was
strongly advised by his friends not
to present that bill, which would/losej
for him the friendship of New Eng-'
land and kill his chances for the
presidency. The reply of that grand
.patriot was: "I would rather be
right than to be president.'' Mr.
Taft has demonstrated thiat he is no
En passant it behooves us to re
mark that when Daniel Webster
mnade his great speech against the
constitutional right of secessica
which gave him at the North the
sobriquet, "Defender of the Union"
and was squelched by Calhoun's re
jinder, so demolishing every attempt
at argument that the Senate sus
t.ained the right of,secession by over
a two-thirds majority. The minority,
not voting for the constitution, but
for the coffers of their constituency.
It is especially worth observing
that when the Union was in the
throes of dissolution in those tro'u
blous times (1832) that the acknowl
edgement of a State's righit of se
-ession prve the stronge's bond of
unin bringing -oncessions of ins
Let the sons of Carolina cherish
the memory of their great alma ma
ter in her victory, the greatest in
the history of states in our coun
try, the equal of any in the world.
Henry Clay nobly sacrificed him
self for the preservation of theunion;
South Carolina -was willing, if need be,
to sacrifice herself on thesacred altar
of States' rights, and indirectly for
the liberties of the whole people
against the tyranny of corporations.
To the credit of our forefathers'
judgment in opposition to the hal
lucinations of "protection," let it be
known that under the system of'
"Tariff for revenue only," the coun
try prospered as never before or
sine. If the incredulous doubt it,
consult Alexander Stevens' "His
tory of the War Between the States"
(under the head of Nullification).
"But ah,' says the advocate of
spoiliation, "look at the great pros
perity under the exceeding high
McKinley and Dingley tariffs!" Yes,
bat look also at the statistics of the
millions of men seeking employment
not able to find it; and ten millions
of people on an average yearly under
that regime not able to supply all
the necessary wants of life. Pros
perity indeed! Yes, for the great
capitalists, whose money-power was
much enhanced by high tariff duties,
the more easily to filch from theI
masses the fruit of their labor. No,
gentlemen, that is no true prosperity
whioh amasses wealth for the com
paratively few, bat dire poverty a:n.d
actual want to the great body of
workers, embracing even the most
skilled. labor, all which constitutes
/the "bone and sinew" of the land;
yea, brains also, for brain workers
also have been among the, sufferers.
Yellow Journalism? Send for 18th U.
S. Labor Report.
It was far otherwise with the
prosperity that followed the victory
of South Carolina in Nullification,
which abolished the protective pol
icy-not again reviv/ed until the tri
umph of the Republican party, which
substituted in place of the previous
workers' prosperity, the fabulous
wealth of corporations.
Must the latter continue riding in
power, trampling in the dust the
former? What shall the answer be
