The Herald and News is forced to
print a ten page paper again with
this issue. We appreciate very much
the advertising patronage we are now
receiving, but we desire that our subscribers
shall understand that we ao j
not intend that the increased advertising
shall interfere with the reading
matter, to which they are entitled. We i
have been forced to be a little late in
mailing a few times, but we hope that
this will not occur in the future.
Fresh live advertising is good news,
and such news as the people desire,
and our experience is that a great
many more people read advertising
in their county papers than some people
are inclined to believe. We are adding
new ndmes to our mailing list with
eacli issue, and we expect, before the
first of January, to add at least 1,000
new subscribers. The moral of this
i". if you have wares to sell, adverse
them in The Herald and News.
The Herald and News prints today
Senator Tillman's statement from
Washington, commenting upon Mr.
T J* 11 _ J J
MC-uaunns iarewen auuress, or siaiement,
withdrawing from the governor's
race, and urging Mr. McLaurin
to take the stump next summer as a
candidate for the United States senate.
We are also printing Mr. McLaurin's
comments upon Senator Tillman's j
It seems that Senator Tillman does
not expect Mr. McLaurin to he elected,
but simply and frankly admits that he
"wants him to make the race in an effort
to defeat Governor Blease. Sen
ator Tillman seems to have forgotten
the history of politics in South Carolina;
he seems to have overlooked the
criticisms which he made of Senator
Hampton some twenty years ago, be- I
cause Senator Hampton underttook to
advise and counsel with the people of :
his State. As a result, Senator Till- j
mman should recall what was the fate
of Senator Hampton, once the idol of
the people of South Carolina.
Senator Tillman has been in Wash- '
; ington so long that we are afraid lie is !
not in touch or in sympathy with the
people ol' his State. He has been;
honored by the people of South Caro- j
! lina, but these people are peculiar, j
I The time was when Senator Tillman 1
I could have elected almost any man
who had his approval, but that time
has passed, and the people are not going
to be dictated to by Senator Till-1
man or anyone else. As a matter of j
fact, we believe if Senator Tillman had
done what he says he would have
done last year if his strength had per'
mitted, viz, t^ken the stump against
Governor Blease for re-election he
would today be a private citizen or a
statesman without a job.
Mr. McLaurin's letter is one of the
, Hoof ortinloa that ho hac writipn and

' fallen into the trap, which Senator
j was undertaking to lay for
Senator Tillman seems to have forgotten
that there were people in South
Carolina who, twenty years ago, took
delight in saying as bitter things about
him as some people are saying today
about Governor Blease, and he is doi
ing now just what he criticised other
people for doing as wrong twenty
years ago. The people of South Carolina
are competent and able to take
care of themselves, and they do not
need a nurse, though it be so great
a man as Senator Tillman, and he will
find it out if he lives long enough.
me interstate commerce commission
has decided with the railroads in
the matter of the mileage book controversy.
The thing for the legislature
to do is to pass a two cents flat
rate, and then there can be no longer
any kick. It seems that it is neces- j
sary for legislation in order to get
just and reasonable mileage rates on

at two cents per mile, or a thousand,
nobody would have just cause of complaint.
We notice from an interview com- i
ing from Washington with Congress- j
man Lever that he is still flirting with
the senatorial toga. We understood
that he was not going to enter the
race for the senate this year, but would
remain in congress, where, by virtue
of the prominent position that he occupies
as chairman of the committee
on agriculture, he may be of a
(great deal more service to his people
than fte could De 11 ne snouia De sac- |
cessful in his senatorial aspirations, j
We are inclined to think that he would '
be running a very great risk to his '
political future if he should enter the ,
senatorial fight. i
As a friend of Mr. Lever, regardless
of any other considerations or candi- i
i t - ? U i- ? ~ ~ ?
; aaies, we wouiu suggest l<j mm max
he had better bring his senatorial
courtship to an end, and decide for
the present to remain in the house, j
This is not said in the interest of any ]
other candidate, but purely in the in- i
terest of Mr. Lever's political future, i
The Herald and News is very fond I
of Congressman Lever, and he has now j
reached that position in congress ,
where he can be of service to his peo- '
' pie, but there are other gentlemen in
his congressional district, who would i
like to go to congress, and if he remains
too long in the hands of his
friends, they may decide to enter the
fight, and then if he should finally de- |
cide not to enter the senatorial race, |
they might give him considerable anr
There is an old maxim that, "He
who hesitates is lost," and it is almost
a maxim that he who places himself
in the hands of his friends is lost, at
We notice in the interview given out
from Washington that Mr. Lever says
tnat His final determination in the
matter of running for the senate would
be fixed by the judgment and wishes
of his friends, and then he adds also by
