URGES MR. M'LAURIN
TO TAKE THE STUMP
tiL TILLMAN CALLS OX DIM TO FIGHT
W Senator Says That Malboro Man Has
Fallen But Has Chance to Re
Washington, Nov. 2.?Discussing
the announcement made a day or two
f ago by Former Senator John L. McLaurin
that he would not become a
candidate for governor of South Carolina
in the primary of next year, and
denominating this statement as the
"swan song" of a very brilliant man
who failed to be a very great man,
and declaring further that he disowns
being the father of Bleaseism, Sena- j
L tor B. R. Tillman today gave the
press an interesting story concerning
P "I read in the South Carolina papers
this morning," said Senator Tillman,
"McLaurin's farewell address or statement
withdrawing from the governor's
race and bidding adieu to politics forever.
It is a pathetic utterance?pathetic
because it is the swan-song of
a very brilliant man, who failed to be j
a very great man because he lacked
the moral fibre to always be jtrue to i
himself and his conviction of right
rather than allow ambition and selfish- !
ness to warp him. His life, in a way, :
is a sermon which young men every- j
where ought to take to heart. Noth-1
ing in the State's history is more la- !
mentable. If he had only been true j
to the Tillmanism to which he says !
lie was converted in isyu, ne wouia
be in the United States senate now 1
and would be an ornament to it.
Two Things He Denies.
"McLaurin says, 'it is the irony of
t fate that I who suffered most injustice
from Tillman personally should now
be the sole defender of Tillmanism.'
"There are two things about this j
statement upon which I desire to comment.
I never did have any personal j
ill will towards John L. McLaurin, j
and have none now. I denounced him !
in the senate because I believed he
was a traitor to the people of the
State who had sent him there. The
people were convinced that my charge
was true and have sustained it whenever
they had an opportunity.
""When he says lie is 'the sole de- j
lender of Tillmanism,' he means i
among those Bleaseites to whom he !
was speaking. He, of course, knows
there are tens of thousands of Till-i
manites, some of whom voted for and 1
some against Gov. Blease last year,
"who have never wavered in their ad
herence to Tillmanism, as they under- I
stand it, and as he now understands it. j
"Mr. Charles Cafroll Simms out- !
Steroded Herod in this Bleaseism, pro-;
claiming that it is higher than Tillmaaism.
He illustrates Byron's
"'He stood the foe with all the zeal
TV men young ana nery convene iwi,
"He is no doubt as sincere in his
Ble&seism now as he was in his Has-;
kellism in 1890. He never under- i
gtood Tillmanism at all. Inheriting

aristocrat and has ended by becoming
an anarchist and wants to run i
into the governor's office on dema- i
gogy. Truly, 'politics does make
strange bedfellows/ and if the Tillmaaites
who deserted me last year on .
account of Blease vote for Simms for i
governor it will be a remarkable transformation.
It will only show Low little
wisdom or reason governs their actions.
Something to Admire.
"There are. some things about McLaurin's
statement that are very admirable,
and I say now that I for the
trst time since I denounced him on
the floor of the senate, believe he has
at last become a patriot and wants to
do the State all the service he can
during the balance of his life. Of
course he has played politics so long
and used diplomacy so much that
?ven now he can not drop the role all

ke "was trying to 'come back' into politics.
I have been hoping that Got.
Blease would indorse him as a successor
in the governor's office, feeling
that that would be enough to damn
fc?th of them in the eyes of the people.
But Blease had too much political
sense to make such a blunder ag that,
and McLaurin is wise in withdrawing
once for all into private life."
Senator Tillman here goes into some
detail in denying that Bleasism is
tie honest child of Tillmanism and
joes on to say that the governor has
?tolen much of the old time Tillman

sonably have expected any other outcome.
Personally, I presume, I am
about the least concerned man in the
entire matter. I have been fighting I
for years for a two cent rate on the
railroads, as my speeches in the
* ? ?ill ^ i
House 01 representatives wiu suuw, ;
and as the. bill I introduced and my !
speeches and arguments in the State
senate will show, and as my bessages j
to the legislature and reconimenda- j
tions will also show. I have been :
pleading for years for a two cent rate.
I have not been content with righting
it in the house and senate, but have
fought for it on the stump, and then
when I was elected governor, i put
it as strong as it was possible to put ;
it in my regular messages, and sent i
two special messages to the legisla- j
ture, pleading with them to do away j
with the abomimable mileage book sys- j
tem and give us a flat two cent rate.
The thanks I received were that many
members, including the officials of the '
drummers and traveling men's asso-.
ciation, went around last summer and
fought me bitterly,?some of the members
of the associations going so far
as rn i^i] dirtv lies in reference to me.
notwithstanding the fight I had made
for them in this matter; and, for my
making the fight I did, the railroad
officials made heavy contributions to a

They do not suit me, so I will be a
man hereafter and my' "own master?
not a slave to ambition. That is bet

"McLAurtn has such great ability
that it is a pity his brains can be of '

career now that he has come to his !

"It is clearly withili the power of
the railroad commission of South Carolina
to establish a two cent rate, and
as Chairman Richards has been talking
so much about this matter,7 I hope
now that he will draft a resolution,
drawn by legal authority, in tht proper
form, and introduce it before his
railroad commission, and lets see what
Messrs. Hampton and Caughinan will
do. I believe, if he does it, that one
of them will vote for it. I may, howev r,
be mistaken. The other one I
have no hopes of against the railroads.
"I shall continue my fight before the
legislature for a flat two cent rate,
nr>t hena.use of this action; for I think
it was ill-advised and nonsensical, as
I have already stated, nor particularly
because some of my enemies, being
drummers, are demanding it. I presume
that they have such an able and
strong organization that they "will take
care of themselves, without the assis
tance of the legislature; and, of course,
I do not expect them to ask the legislature
for anything-, as they can take
care of themselves, it seems, or at
lpopr it seems that they thought so until
this decision was rendered. However,
the laboring people of South Carolna,
the people who travel on the railroads,
who are not able to buy mileage
books, are just as much entitled
to be transported from place to place
for twr? rents a mile, as is that man
v/ho is able to pay nis twenty dollars
for a mileage book, and it is for them
that I propose to continue the fight,
and I hope that the next legislature
will gve us a flat two cent rate,'proTided
the passage of It will not cause
