TILLMAN TALKS OF
Senator Has Choice of Three Important
Charleston, Nov. 22.?Genuine optimism
and an utter absence of
bragadocio or undue confidence characterized
the utterances of Senator
Benjamin Ryan Tillman last night in
k an interview regarding the future of
the country under Democratic administration
of governmental affairs and
of South Carolina's snare in uie gooa
things accruing therefrom. Senator
Tillman, while in the city, is the guest
of Henry P. Williams, No. 31 East Bat- '
tery. Last night he attended the ban- j
quet at the Charleston hotel in honor I
of Admiral Osterhaus and yesterday
afternooi^he paid a formal call upon
Admiral Osterhaus aboard the battle- |
ship Utah. On his vi6it to Charleston
he is accompanied by Mrs. Tillman, to
whom he affectionately refers as the
senior member of the Tillman firm.
"I am not bragging about what I
am going to do," said Senator Tillman.
"'I have the choice of the chairmanship
of three committees of the senate?
three important ones, the appropriations,
the naval affairs and the inter- j
state commerce committees."
Asked which he would accept, the
senator declared that he would "wait
4 until he reached Washington upon the
convening of congress,
"'But as you see it now, senator, to
t which committee are you most inclined?"
f ~ r ''I
do not want to burden myself,"
I was the reply; "I do not want to un-i
F dertake what I can not do justice to,
and for some reasons I am inclined to j
the naval affairs committee, but the
appropriations committee carries with,
it so much more of influence and prestige
that just now I am rather inclined
to it. But, of course, remember !
that I retain membership on all three
* of the committees no matter whicb I
am chairman of. It, alter 1 investigate
the situation, I believe that I
can do the work, I will take the appropriations
committee; otherwise, I
will take the naval affairs committee."
to the development of Charles- j
ton yard," said Senator Tillman,
"and for its enlargement, that all de.
pends upon the attitude -of the new secr?f
tha t*?w and the general doI- i
# . w _ ,
icy adopted by the Wilson administra- |
-? tion. Meyer, you know, was rather j
inimical toward this yard. I have com- j
bated that attitude and I think success^ |
fully. If the Wilson administration
s favors a policy of development the
navy yard and the naval Equipment I
will want the Charleston yard to be
developed in proportion to all others,'
as it is the only Southern yard left, and
as it is the nearest to Panama."
Wilson's Silence Wise.
In regard to the cabinet appointments
to be made by Woodrow WilLson,
who will soon assume the reins
of the national government, Senatorj
J." . ' Tillman thinks that the presidentelect
has been eminently wise in refraining
from any statements pertain*
"Wilson is wise in not making the.
newspapers his spokesmen in the matter
of cabinet appointments," said he.
"He would be running way ahead of
his hound in* shooting off his mouth
prematurely. All the time now between
the convening of congress until
his inauguration Wilson will have op?

Democrats of the country and to make |
"How about the appointment of
Southern men?" was a question propounded.
"Wilson ought not to appoint an undue
number of Southern men," said the
senator, "but the Soutn lias been out in
- the cold so long, I hope the return of a j
* Southern man to the presidency after j
sixty years will be signalized by a re
turn to the antebellum policy inaugurated
by the Democrats coming, j and |
W unless Southern men have lost that;
characteristic of honor and honesty,
wm Wilson can not make a mistake if he >
picks Southern men for any office in !
W his gift, for the South has, as under j
Jefferson, an opportunity of having aj
* government run as economically as i
possible, but not so as to impair its efficiency.
The South is entitled to its
share of appointments and other good
? things and has as good men as there
are in the nation." 1
Replying to a question as *to his es- i
timate of President-elect Wilson, j
Senator Tillman said that he re- [
garded him as a man of judicial mind I
and a thoughtful man; that as to the
future, with Wilson as president, he
had a great deal of hope and confi
dence, although possibly a little more \
of the former.
As to State Politics.

the night before. What additional evidence
had been secured against Thorn
as, or how strongly the circumstances
pointed to him as the guilty party, is
not known definitely. One of the rumors
is that Thomas was heard to say
on the morning of the day that Johnson
was killed that he intended to kill
Johnson that night and then go home
and kill his own wife.
Will Goggans, a negro living near,
the house in which Johnson was killed,

Tlie Evidence Agmasi muiuu^ |
Magistrate William Dorroh and Constable
Cary G. Johnson, who were in
Newberry on Monday said that strong
evidence had been secured against Will
Thomas, the negro who was lynched.
The case was proceeding along the
theory that both Thomas and Will GogI
sans, the negro held in jail here, were j
participants in the crime. What evidence
may be adduced against Goggans
(remains to be seen. It seems, from
[ what can be gatnered in connection
! with the affair, that Thomas' wife was j
j being depended upon as one of the j
! strongest witnesses against Thomas, |
| and the impression that she had
| "gone back" on her evidence against
' her husband, or would do so, may nave
had sometnmg to do with inspiring the
lynching. It was stated by Constabl-e
Johnson that it had been learned that
