(My Dear Mr. Editor: In rummaginng
over some old letters and
papers which I had laid away I came
across the enclosed clippings from
the Post Intelligencer, a newspaper
of Seattle, Wash., edited by Scott C.
The clippings were sent to me by

'/ thought, I presume, as it concerned
a prominent citizen of my native
?tate I would be pleased to read it,
and so I was. 1 <
And now, though iW is somewhat
old, I bethought me that possibly it
might interest you to know of the
tribute paid to one of the distinguished
citizens of our dear old state
by a prominent editor of the great

Elected governor of South Caroli- j
na in 1890, at the zge of 43, and re-'
ejected in 1892, in each instance by 1
an overwhelming popular vote, and 1
since March 4, 1895, holding a seat in ; '
tjie^ IJnited States senate, Benjamin *
It. Tillman, known i.o earlier fame as 11
"Pitchfork Ben Tillman," who has 1
passed beyond at 71, was a rugged, '1
picturesque character who served his 1
commonwealth and country well. His ^
; vYV j,'"- 4' *v.
fourth ferm as senator was all but 1
completed. He was tired. Alter #
twenty-eight years of public life, he e
felt, that his work was done. He was t
*? retire and made announce- t
ment some time ago that he would '
not ask for reelection. South Caro- *
line dissented, however. It prefer- *
red he should, wear the senatorial 3
toga to the end. And so he did. j 1

coming at the polls. j 1

could not go on forever. Times ;
change; the world moves; new conditions
arise and man adjusts himself
tp.*t^em. If, perchance, the adjustment
be tardy, if it come reluctantly,
if it be resisted, then a force appears
to give it stimulus and hasten it.
"'jphis man Tillman, with his imagin&ry,
but dreaded pitchfork, became
. that force in 1886. He was an agitator,
agitating fdr industrial and tech?
niq?l education for the masses. He
disturbed South Carolina's serenity
anc( tranquility. He shocked the sensibilities
of the accepted classes?affronted
the dignity and hauteur of a
proud people. He went at his mission
bluntly, roughly. He had but one
eye (lost the other by illness just
when he had quit school to join the
Confederate army in 1864) and was
not pleasing to gaze upon. Aristocratic
South Carolina did not like his
looks. It resented his activities. But
of what moment this when he had
captured the imagination of the masses
and set them to thinking? It
counted for naught. He wielded that
imaginary pitchfork powerfully, successfully.
Soon the state., the higher
classes dazed by the whirlwind of the
crusade, saw an agricultural and mechanical
college established at Fort
Hill, Calhoun's old homeland other
"South Carolina, out of the rut,
proceeded to elect this one-eyed,
pitchfork-wielding man governor, and
two years later to re-elect him overwhelmingly.
Progress continued to
be his motto; enlightened usefulness
on the part of the people his aim. He
was instrumental in establishing another
institution?a normal and industrial
college for women at Rock
Hill, which promises to lead all similar
schools in the South?and he regulated
the liquor traffic, so demoralizing
in its influence and effects upon
high and low alike.
"Nothnisr succeeds like success, and
his rousing of the people and achievements
in the fir?: office he ever held
made a United States senator of him:
He .defeated M. C. Butler, the Co*nfederate
brigadier, erstwhile idolized
by his commonwealth, in a popuhr
contest in 1894, winning overwhelmigly,
and he has worn the toga all
these years intervening and kept it
unspotted and clean.

mildly and becomingly. In a little
time he was no misfit. He found

South Carolina, was in no urgent

nade up of statesmen and patriots as
jealously enlisted as he for the pubic

"Asserting that the states are being
threatened today by federal usurpation
of power, Governor Miller declared
himself on "state's right"?
;he paramount issue of the civil war."
The above is the opening para
seraph of a front page story in Saturday's
New York Times.
The Governor Miller referred to is
Governor Miller of the gteat state of
NTew York and he is a Republican, i

was a judge of high rank and his
legal knowledge has long been recognized
and admired in his native state.
There <are two things we wish to
commend, in the statement of Gov.
Miller: His advocacy of .-state's rights
and his statement that this was the
paramount issue of the War Between
the States. He, like many others in
the North and East, now has learned
that slavery was not the'paramount
issue nor anything more tnan an incidental
True Gov. Miller is not like some
John the Baptist, preaching a new
and strange doctrine in the wilderness
of New York. Other governors
and other leading men in the North
and East have recently had a say or
two on the subject, but no one of
them has made it the subject of a
long and elaborate speech as did Gov.
Miller at Glei\Cove last Friday.
All of us have been guilty of calling
on Washington for this and for
that. Every evil under the sun could
be cured by congressional legislation.
We wanted help for this and
for that; we wanted the congress to
buy cotton and to give a minimum
price on cotton; we wanted federal
prohibition and we got it?just look
at it, will you? we wanted woman
suffrage by federal amendment and
got it, and now there is talk of a federal
ban on tobacco, federal legislation
to regulate the length of. wornJ
en's skirts; talk of federal regulation
of firearms, and heaven only
knows what else reformers have in
mind for our disturbance.
Gov. Miller probably correctly says 1
there will never be any effort to dis- i
rupt the Union by secession again but
the Union is in danger from three <
sources?from revolution; from legal :
disruption by constitutional amend
rr.ent or by usurpation by the federal
govei nnment of the legitimate func- 1
tion-i of the states. And he cites
Gecrge Washington's warning that <
usurpaption of federal power was the j
It is time to wake up and assert "
the faith that our fathers fought and !
died for. This section is becoming as
bad as any other in its dependence J
on the federal goverment. Let's J
elect our best men to the state legislature
and turn our faces to Columbia
rather than to Washington. j ]

"Wonders of the Lleep
During the recent trans-oceanic
misunderstanding a young Bostonian ^
enlisted as a gob on one of the de- ^
strcyers. It was observed that in
every spare minute he was draped .
over the rail, anxiously studying the 4
surface of the water. To' all demands
as to what he was lookiiig for J
he had but one answer: "A whale."
"See -here," remonstrated a: com
