Columbia, July 17.?Gov. Blease de
clared it as his opinion that Senator
Tillman broke down his health by his
lecturing tours and "ruined his usefulness
to the people of South Carolina
by running round over the country
delivering lectures and overwork\
ing himself," in a statement today, replying
to Senator Tillman's interview j
in the morning papers. He repeated
his criticism of Secretary of State
Bryan for lecturing while holding his

"The first part of it brought about
by a statement published in the newspapers
which is absolutely untrue, and
if the senator uad read the News and

would have seen the difference. I did

man, and as published in the Columbia
Record: "Senator Tillman ruined
himself with Che people of South
Carolina in just the same manner,
when he went about lecturing instead
of remaining in Washington and attending
to the business in the senate."
What I said, and now rqpeat,
was that Senator Tillman broke his
health down and ruined his usefulness
to the people of South Carolina by
running around over tne country delivering
lectures and overworking
himself. I repeat that now. 1
"I was also misquoted in the paper
as to what I said about Secretary of
State Bryan. I said nothing about him
drawing two salaries, because anybody
with good sense knows that a
matter *of holding a public office and
appearing on the platform are not in
conflict with each other, so far as
the salary is concerned: but what I
said was that I did not think that

his past conduct in his own elections
is working on his enfeebled mind, and
no doubt the loss of life in the Darlington
riot is also playing its part in
his reference to the militia situation
in this State, and that he is more to
be pitied than to be blamed."
TILLMAX CRITICISES BRYAN.
Says Secretary of State Should Quit
The Lecture Platform.
Washington, July 16.?Today's New
York Herald says:
"Senator Tillman, who confesses
that at one time he made $25,000 a
year on the lecture platform during
vacations of congress, said he never
had neglected his official duties to fill
lecture engagements. He regretted
Mr. Bryan's dvotion to tme piairorm.
"It is a perfectly legitimate way to
make money," he said, "but I regret
to hear of Mr. Bryan doing it. Just
at this time, when there is so much
important work before his department,
I would prefer to have hLm stay
in Wasington. He could better afford
to impoverish himself than to appear
to neglect his official duties.
"The impression prevails?though I
don't know how well'founded it is?
that Mr. Bryan has made a great deal
of 'money since 1896. He has published
two or three books, owns the
Commoner, which has a wide circulation,
and has lectured extensively.
I love the man so much I hate to
see him do anything that will belittle
him in the eyes of the people as this
certainly will do. Wihile his speaking
tours will serve a good purpose in
that he always preaches true democracy,
and patriotism and Christian
living, he can never again appear as
a Knight errant of democracy."

An Aged Man's Plea.
Gov. Blease has made an appeal to
the president of the United States
for clemency for Milton A. Carlisle of
Newberry. This is a most remarkable
appeal in many ways. It comes
from one who has himself beenmer
ciful and has for the first time sought
pity- he wishes mercy for his former
client. It comes from the governor
of the State who ihas had many
bitter things to say of the man froia
*hom he is now seeking leniency, aid

When the governor had issued his
, 500th pardon and parole, this paper
called attention to the fact that, so
far as we then knew, not one had
betrayed the kindness and generosity
of tne governor. We are of those
-who dplore releasing bo many prisoners,
especially murderers, but the
governor's treatment of the prisoner

been eitiher very wise or very lucky,
and is food for serious thought. He
