The governor's reply to the Tillman
attack is one of the neatest things
Governor Blease has done since he
has been in office. Clear, temperate
and to the' point, it struck directly

himself hopelessly entangled in the
condemnation which Tillman's course
lias received from Tillman's own
Our candid judgment is that the. attempted
dictation of Tillman, coming
at the time and in the manner it did,
and coming condemned out of Tillman's
own mouth, has acted as a
boomerang which will make the antiBlease
forces wish it had never seen
the light of day. *
Senator Tillman said a few days ago
that he did not think he ought to dictate
to the people of South Carolina
for whom they should vote for governor.
He has evidently changed his

the people needed a dictator last Saturday
morning, when only a few days
prior he did not think it proper for
him to set himself up as a dictator?
THE END IS SIGHT. j
Tonight will bring to a close one j
Of tne Dllteresi guueiucituxmi tam- j
paigns since Tillman was running foV
re-election in 1892. There is, of
course, with Mr. Jno. T. Duncan in
the race, a bare possibility 'that a
second race may be necessary, but unless
ally political signs toil, this is a
factor which is hardly to be taken
Whatever the result of the election
today, we hope that the bitterness
which it has engendered will be a
thing of the past with the announce
ment of the result.
Tillman had no business in the gubernatorial
race in South Carolina this
year. His appeal for re-election was
largely based on the sentimental reason
that he desired to die in harness.
His service to the State would have
entitled him to that, though he did not
show Hampton the same consideration
which he asked at the hands of the
people of South Carolina. Now he has
done the same thing which he so
vigorously charged Hampton with
having done in the nineties, and for
which he so bitterly condemned Hampton.
And he has done that which several
times this month he has told the
people of South Carolina he ought not
to do and would not do.
GONZALES AND TILLMAN.
The Herald and News publishes today
a statement from Governor
' Blease in which he gives, upon reliable
information, three telegrams from
the editor of the State to the State's
Washington correspondent begging
for the Tillman letter to Ferguson and
saying that Blease's forces were going
to strike Tillmaji on Tuesday.
The Tillman letter has been forthcoming.
In the Columbia State of Monday
morning Mr. Gonzales does not deny
these telegrams, but refuses them
publication because he claims they
were private messages stolen during
We do not know how Governor
Llease secured his information in regard
to the telegrams, but everybody
knows that there is always some danger
of some one learning the contents
of a telegram.
Any insinuation that the governor
had anything to do with "stealing"
them is, of course, absurd.
The Blease supporters in Xewberry,
at least, have been supporters of Till,
man here, and had intended to support

who fought him most bitterly.
TILLMAN HAS PLAYED INTO THE
HANDS OF HIS ENEMIES OF OLD,
AND BY SO DOING HAS HURT HIMSELF
AND HIMSELF ALONE.
The following is the card in the
Columbia State of Monday morning
refusing Governor Blease's request
for the publication of his statement
and admitting the correctness of the
"The State received last night from
Cole. L. Blease for publication an article
containing more or less accurate
copies of three private telegrams, two
sent bv the editor of the State on Fri
day evening and one on Saturday, cov
the Washington correspondent of the
State. The correspondent in Wash- j
ington was informed of the situation
in Spartanburg as reported to Columbia,
and as many reports had come
that Tillman was considering publish-j
ing the Ferguson letter, the Washing
ton correspondent was urged to get
the letter for publication. A great
news story of great political significance
"The State has nothing to conceal,
but it refuses the brazen request that
it make itself the vehfcle for publish
ing private telegrams stolen during
transmission from the' telegraph
This matter gives an insight into the
methods which have been pursued in
the fight on Blease.
TILLtfAX A>D BLEASE.
In the face of Tillman's stab, directled
at Governor Blease on the eve of
ithe primary, after the campaign for
governor had closed at Greenville, it
is interesting'to go back some twenty
years and look at Tillman's attitude
when he was a candidate for re-election
to the office of governor; when he
was making bitter attacks upon his
"enemies," and when the newspapers
were making bitter attacks upon him.
Tillman says if Blease' is. re-elected
the State will be disgraced, and that
is exactly what was being heralded
all over the State and all over the
world in regard to Tillman in 1892.
They tell us now that practically all
the preachers are against Blease, and
a vigorous attack is being made upon
the Rev. Dr. J. A. Sligh because he
has had some kind things to say of
the present governor. If Tillman will
recall, the preachers were also against
him in 1892, and the Rev. Dr. Sligh
was then supporting Tillman, as he is
now supporting Blease.
Befcause Tillman has seen fit to
make an eleventh-hour attack upon
Blease, however, some of Blease's opponents
who have always fought Tillman,
and who would now be delighted
at nothing more than to have both
his political scalp ana me political
scalp of Blease dangling a? their
belts, will make a great hero of Tillman
until.after the primary.
The reporter fcrr the News and
Courier thus spoke of the Florence j
campaign, meeting of June 30, 1892:
"The Florence meeting deserves the
palm for confusion and disorder. The
previous meetings hardly compare,
and the most radical lovers of the
sensational had cause for delight. Of j
profane words and harsh assertions j
there was free and unlimited coinage
and the place of meeting was for a
wnnllTT nAnvartfld intn <-> cfOTlO nf I
l ccti i"tv/ a, v/-*- |
battle. As for the governor, he distinguished
himself. It is understood
that his temperature was too high for
the thermometer to register."
It was at this Florence meeting that
Tillman was "called down" by a
preacher on the stand, ine Carre's*
spondent of the News and Courier
"The Rev. S. M. Richardson advanced
toward the governor, and, pausing,
said: Gov. Tillman, do you believe in
a God? Governor Tillman: 1 do and
truct 1 n u ?rv> "VTv rHcfin T'hon
you should apologize for your expression."
Then, as now. the newspapers were
charging that the applause was from
"foreigners" imported to do the hollering,
and the charge was that the
imported "foreigners'' were Tillmanites.
They charged that at the Helena
meeting, where The stand broke down
and prevented probably serious trou- I
ble, "two hundred Tillmanites from
Edgefield had come to see the governor
through, and much of the disorder |
of the day was due to their pestiferous !
presence"?this statement being car- j
ried in the News and Courier report j
of that meeting, the report being written
by a staff correspondent of the
News and Courier.
Tillman then was attacking the legislature
as vigorously as Blease has
attacked the legislature in this campaign.
A daily paper, in its
report of the Winnsboro meeting of
[August 2, 1892, thus reported a por-'
jtion of Tillman's speech:
"Speaking of the driftwood legislature,
he said lots of them were honest
but they were ignorant. He said that
before this agitation the people in
Fairfield had the dry rot. They were
a set of ignorant jackasses and were j
lied by the nose by-town cliques and |
i would-be bosses. He told them how j
t to vote."
It hardly lies in the mouth of Till!
man to direct the attack upon Gover!
nor Blease which he made upon him I

THE GASOLINE ENGINE.

The following instructive artie'e on j
the diseases of the gasoline engine j
and the remedies therefor, has be;.in ;
sent out from Clemson College:

in the form of gasoline, good j

j water on the carburetor will help to
get the engi je started in case there :

gasoline after the engine warms up. ' j
j Care should b6 exercised in apply- \
jing hot water, not to get water in

If gasoline contains water it may j
be removed by straining through a j
piece of very fine wire cloth or j
through a piece of chamois skin.
Regarding cylinder oil, on account.!
of the very high temperature of the j

j ing point should be used in the cylin-;

deposit of carbon that soon prevents j

The writer hp- observed the case
of one gasoline engine which was in
excellent condition being discarded by
the nnerator. nn the eround. that it
| could not be dep^ided upon, when the
only trouble was that the operator,
despite repeated advice to the contrary,
insisted on filling the lubricator
with any oil that looked black and
thick. Use a good grade of gasoline
cylinder oil and not more of it than
the manufacturer's directions call for.!
In running a gasoline engine
one secret of successful operation is i
to know your battery. Every gasoline 1
engine operator should have a battery i
ammeter which may be bought for a |
small sum, and with this the battery j
should be tested frequently. A good
quality of dry cell suitable for ignition
should read from twenty-five to thirty
amperes when new, and a cell should
be thrown away when it will read j

One dead cell in a battery greatly
reduces its power and should be replaced
as soon as discovered.
Battery connections should be examined
frequently, as they are very disposed
to work loose, especially if the
