neutrality of his attitude.
The campaign meetings for governor
and for the United States senate
have closed?one at Greenville on
Tuesday, the other at Aiken on yesterday.
Senator Tillman has waited for

"whether I can make any speeches

the people; have no daily newspapers
to express my views and tiie few papers
which are for me are weeklies
and will not be published again until
after the election. Let every man
read the letters which Senator Tillman
has given out, and which have
[been made public at the campaign
meetings and in the public press during
the campaign, and then let them
read this letter which j he withholds
until the campaign has closed. I
leave it to the people of this State
to judge Senator Tillman's conduct.
I leave it to the plain common
people of this State who have voted
for and elevated him into office, who
have voted for and elevated me into
* office?to ray whether he has treated
them and has treated me with fairness
and candor. |k|^
\ * Thinks It Kelps.
From the telegrams and long distance
phone messages I have received
this morning (which I wish I had
room to insert every one of them in
this article) I have been strengthened
and not hurt in my fight for popular
government, and against the newspapers,
the cotton mill mergers and oth
er corporations. From these, it is evident
that in the minds of a justice<
loving public an eleventh-hour attack
will find no justification. It has
been condemned by Tillman himself;
it will be condemned by the people of
South Carolina on Tuesday next, who
4 must remember that 'Junius Brutus
gave the eleventh stab to Caesar who
had been his friend. Such stabs have
been condemned by all men who were
men, for 20 centuries, and I fear no
1 evil from Senator Tillman's letter, ex
cept that possibly his mind has become
more diseased of late than it
was when I had my last talk with his
Cole L. Blease.
B. R. TILLMAN REPLIES
TO GOVERNOR'S REPLY
Trenton, Aug: 25.?Senator Tillman,
after reading Gov. Blease's statement
appearing in yesterday morning's papers,
gave out the following statement
"Gov. Blease would have the people
I % of the State believe that' I have acted
^ -unfairly and deceived him. I want to
say this: At the meeting in Orange.
.. burg the subject of the governor's
race was not mentioned because there
was then no opposition to him so far
as any candidate's name being announced.
The picnic in Orangeburg
was in July and Judge Jones did not
announce himself until in August. I
did ask, the governor some questions
at Oraneeburs: about his D^rdon rec
ord, and I confess,I wanted to give
^ him an opportunity to explain things
|^for which he was being criticized. At
that time my attitude was that of a
"When Gov. Blease came to Washington
I invited him "to my hotel, because,
as governor of the State, 1
wanted to show him courtesy, and
having always been on friendly terms,
-u , ~ ? 4-"U ^
i iuougM[ it*xiui.uiu5 UIUIC tiiau m?
BL due. But if anything was said about
the governor's race or about his running
against or opposing me for the
senate, I do not remember it. Mrs.
* * Tillman, who was present all the time
'during the call, has the same recollection
as mine as to what occurred.
"I have waited patiently while this
campaign has progressed, hoping that
the governor would clear up some
\ things which are very suspicious, but
;.sT , _ _ ^
jr. He has not said anyming aoout stotnr'
art or Nicholls selling pardons and
i ' dividing with Blease. I made up my
mind that I could not stand for "any
^nan who was so careless about the
State's good name and the justifiable
^ suspicions be had aroused,
ji "I have no reason to love Judge
Jones because he changed the law by
,V the decision for the custody of mv
! grandchildren, which had stood for
150 years. My son has written me
-from Oregon, hoping that he might
^some time be able to tell Judge Jones
what he thought about him and his
k decision. My wife, who everyone
knows Has more influence over me
t* than any on? else in the worM. has
been a strong Blease sympathizer and
L protested to the last against my glv
jing out anything more.
I "So the people can understand .what
! real foundation there is in Governor
Blease's accusations about my holding
the statement back until it was :oo
late for him to answer. I have never
! fought anybody secretly and always
have been open and above board. 1
never wrote to any one until they first
wrote to me and demanded that I
should say as much for Blease as I
had said for Jones. The people can
see from this statement how much
justification there is for Gov. Blease's
implied cftarge tnat I nave ireaieu
TILLMAN LEAYES FOR HOME.

Washington, August 24. ?Special:
Senator Tillman left Washington this

his departure he said:

fully what I have done they
will stand by me and for the best

"The telegram that has given me
most satisfaction was from my son
Henry C. Tillman, of Greenwood,
which is as follows: 'Don't know what

'today from aLmost every county in
jthe State indicate that John M. Slaton
was nominated fcr Governor in yester;
day's Democratic State primary by the
largest majority in the history of

Contrary to early reports, late returns
this afternoon showed that Representative

Owing to the length of the ballot,
it is probable that complete unofficial
returns will not be available until tomorrow.
Official returns received tonight
show that Col. Randall aWlker has

Chester ship canal was inaugurated,
few people beyond the radius of
Lancashire realize the importance of
this great inland waterway, that carries
ocean-going ships into the heart
of one of our'largest cities.
The ship canal is a trifle more than
thirty-five miles in length, and has a
depth of twenty-six feet, whilst it is
300 feet in width, or as wide as the
Suez. In places the canal is,sixty feet
above sea level, and it cost considerably
more than $75,000,000 to build.
