TALK ON SENATOR
IS NOW COMING UP
Ansel, Parker and Lever Are Now
Mentioned-Tillman May Not
The State, 1st.
That B. R. Tillman will not seek
reelection to the United States senate
is practically assured. Close friends!
o the United States senator say that
bis health will not permit his return
to active politics. Those who have
visited Senator Tillman recently give
the opinion that he is preparing to
retire on his Trenton farm. It can al
most be positively stated that he is
through with politics in this State, ac
cording to intimate friends. Senator
Tillman's health, however, is very
Naturally the question follows:
"Who will go to the United States
senate to succeed B. R. Tillman?"
There have been many names sug
gested for the place and many changes
in South Carolina politics are liable
to take place in the space of two years.
There is an effort to build up several
political possibilities along this line.
Will Ansel Run .
Among those who have been men
tion as likely to declare themselves
for the position are Gov. M. F. Ansel,
A. F. Lever, congressman from this
district, and Lewis W. Parker of
Greenville. These named have not
said positively that they would con
test for senatorial honors yet.
Gov. Ansel has stated that he in
tends to go back to Greenville when
he leaves the office of governor and
resume the practice of law. He was
for many years solicitor in the Pied
mont section and has a broad ac
Gov. Ansel is not a man to talk poli
tics and has never intimated that he
rwould follow the game after leaving
the office of the chief executive of the
State. Yet he is one of those men
Lewis W. Parker is the best known
and one of the most capable mill of
ficers in the country. He has been a
remarkable success in everything that
he has undertaken. His name has
been mentioned many times for the
senatorship because it is believed that
eventually the political fever will.'
A. F. Lever, congressman from this
district, is also mentioned as possible
candidate for the position. He has
never made a stLtemner.t but two years
ago was mentioned and was consid
ered a dangerous opponent.
There are others who might be
mentioned, R. Goodwyn Rhett, mayor
of Charleston, being among them.
The contest is two years away and
others may rise up and claim the
right for the position.
New Site Selected by Commission FrL
day-Location Not Tet An
.\ws and Courier.
Columbia, September 30.--The new
ayslum to be erected for negroes, giv
ing in South Carolina for the first time
the segregation of the races, will be
built in Richland county. Tonight Dr
James W. Babcock, chairman of the:
asylum commission, announced that
the commission, at a lengthy session:
today, had unanimously decided to
4make the purchase of the new site in:
this county. Fifteen hundred acres, or
thereabouts, will be secured, the land
lying a few miles from the present site
of the old asylum. The location has
not yet been made public. The pre
liminary arrangements looking to the
purchase of the land have been made
and at a meeting of the commission,
to be held next Friday afternoon at
2 o'clock, the commission will com
plete arrangements and will announce
the exact location of the land.
Unanimous on Richland Site.
Out of more than 60 sites that were,
offered, the Richland land was select
ed unanimously by the members of
Sthe commission. Dr. Babcock remark
ed tonight that the action of the corn
mnittee throughout has been unani
mous. Sites were offered from manyI
counties in the State and a number
wre included in the list of those of
frdin this county. No Charleston
sites were offered, but Charleston men
weeinterested in some of the sites
The commission has been at work'
several months in the matter and have
5 given careful thought to the work of
selecting a site. When the commis
sion met today there was a trip out
into the county and more land was
looked over. In addition to this new
sites were offered from other parts of
the State. The list had been cut down.
to a few sites at the last meeting.
Commiissionl Not Limited.
The commission was not limited to
any particular number of acres, as
has been erroneously represan~
fronm time to time.
The -esolution passed at the last
session of the general assembly says.
the onision shall purchase lands,
but does not say how much. The se
lection of a site in this county will eli
niinate the necessity of an absoluie
division of the State Hospital for the
Insane. There will be two asylums,
it is true, the old one for the white and
the new asylum for the negroes, but
both will be in this county. At a for
mer meeting the commission decided
it would be impracticable to move the
present asylum and the buildings
thereon are being improved and two
new ones erected. This relieves for
the time being the overcrowded con
dition of the asylum.
Segregation at Last.
At another meeting also the com
mission decided that the new site
should be ultilized for the negroes, so
that there would be a segregation of
the races. This has been one of Dr.
Babcock's efforts for many years. The
segregation of the whites and negroes
has been aimed at for a long time. Ic
will now be accomplished. The com
mission has $100,000 av4lable un
der the resolution. The land, although
no purchase price has yet been given
out for publication, will probably
cost in the neighborhood of $15,000.
That would leave about $85,000 for the
erection of buildings. The purchase
price mentioned here is only specula
tion, to show the amount available for
the new buildings to be erected on the
When the commission meets next
week more definite details with regard
to the purchase will be given out. All
members of commission were present
today, as follows: Dr. James W. Bab
ock, chairman; Dr. Robert Wilson.
Jr., of Charleston; Col. Leroy Springs,
f Lancaster; Judge R. 0. Purdy, of
Sumter, and Dr. George B. Cromer, of
RAILROAD MAN KILLED
BY CIRCUS EMPLOYES
Horrible Murder of Paul Williams of
Columbia on Special Train.
olumbia State, 3d.
Paul A. Williams, 19 years of age,
f the Southern railway in Columbia,
was murdered and robbed about 2.30
'clock Sunday morning while riding
with his friend, J. C. Weekly, also of
olumbia, on the first section of the
rain which carried the Hagenbeck
Wallace circus to Augusta. The body
was discovered lying beside the track,
3etween Gilbert and Summit, 26 miles
from Columbia, by Conductor Thrift
En charge of Southern freight train No.
176 yesterday morning about 10.30
>'clock. There was a bullet wound in
:he right eye.
B. D. Clarke, coroner of Lexington
ounty, held an inquest later in the day
at Gilbert. The verdict of the jury
was that Paul A. Williams came to*
his death by a gunshot wound at the'
hands of parties unknown.
J. C. Weekly was the only material
witness and he told a dramatic story
of the shooting of his friend by three
white men, and how he escaped by hid
ing under a piece of canvas.
Pockets Searched. .
The pockets of young Williams were
ound turned wrong side out. In them
a blood-stained one dollar bill
which his murderers failed to find.
His watch and about $5, which Weekly
says Williams had when he left Co
lumbia, were missing. One of his
shoes had been taken off.
The body of the murdered man was
brought to Columbia last night at 7.30
o'clock on Southern train No. 130 from'
Augusta. His parents, Mr. and Mrs.
F. J. Williams, who formerly lived in
Columbia, where Mr. Williams had a
jewelry store, but moved to Athens,
Ga., a few months ago, are expected*
to arrive this morning at 10.30 o'clock.
Advices from Augusta say that 33
of the employees of the Hagenbeck
Wallace circus were arrested when the
first section of the train arrived. The
circuis authorities are quoted as saying
that the train was held up and robbed
by eight negroes Sunday morning be
tween Gilbert and Batesburg. They
deny that they knew that either yor
Williams or Weekly were on the train.
There was a great deal of rioting on
the train and three others who were
employes of the circus are said to be
