HARMONY IS NOT ALL THAT
- IS NEEDED.
It is with great satisfaction that
we can note the harmony in the Gen
eral Assembly. Two weeks have al
ready glided by and not a single ap
peal to factions was made. All ques
tions were discusssd upon merit, and
party affiliations was an unknown
quantity. Notwithstandig this happy
state of affairs, if our law-makers
have as yet done anything but draw
breath and salary, which effects the
public good, we have been unable to
bee it. We certainly have not seen
~~.wethe slightest attempt has been
male to-ighten the taxes, nor
where any attempt has been
made to exchange our present
farcical school system for a system
which will give the taxpayers a de
>cent return for the taxes they have to
The corporations have received at
tention at the hands of our law-mak
ers, and so has the dispensary and
county officials, and a number of oth
er matters which can be put aside for
future consideration without doing
any harm to the public, but the
things which affect all of us directly
have not been touched.
, Itis all very nice tobe able to in
form the people that factionalism is
dead; it sounds well; but if the kill
ing of factionalism means a birth of
do-notbingism, it would be far better
for the "dogs of war" to be turned
loose again that the agitation might
bring about a spirit of activity and
We hope there is at least one man
in the whole legislative body who has
brain enough to formulate a school
system for South Carolina which will
give the children of the ordinary tax
payer an opportunity of getting as
good schooling free as other States
have. We believe the system needs
a thorough overhauling; that the ex
isting condition is not for a lack of
money we are convinced. There is
an obstacle somewhere, but what it
is and where it is, we cannot point
out, but we do believe that with the
enormous amount of money paid in
the shape of taxes~ for school pur
poses, if the same was managed as a
financier manages his bank or other
private interest, we would have a free
school system with first-class teach
ers nine months in the year, and a
surplus fund to build and keep in re
pair school houses.
There is a bill before the legisla
ture to regulate the sale of cigarettes,
the purpose being, we presume to
put a stop to the sale of the obnox
ious things. The law may be alright
and the motive prompting its intro
duction good, but how is such a law
to be enforced? We do not believe
that putting a privilege tax on the
manufacture of cigarettes will have
any other tendency than to cripple
an industry in this State, compar
atively in its infancy; and the injured
ones will be our tobacco growing
farmers. We admit the evil of the
cigarette habit and would like to see
the evil stopped, but the boys will
smoke them and law or no law they
will continue gratifying their tastes;
then why should we, because some
people will smoke cigarettes go de
liberately to workandstrikeja murder
ous blow at an industry which is giv
ing employment to thousands of men,
women and children and lifting the
mortgage yoke from the necks of our
!armers. It is a matter beyond dis
pute-, that the culture of tobacco in
this State has saved many a farmer
from ruin; it has caused the building
up of places made waste, because the
production of cotton would not afford
the necessary means to build. Debts
have been paid, lands have been im
proved, and where an open log house
stood to shelter from sunshine
and rain, there now stands a neat,
comfortable dwelling with such cheer
ful surroundings that pride mantles
the cheek of the owner when he re
fers to his home. This happy con
dition was brought about by our
farmers finding come other crop be
sides cotton, and if the bill to put .a
privilege tax on cigarettes becomes a
law, the manufacturers will not suffer,
the consumer will not be harmed, but
the man who tills the soil and pays
the taxes to run this government, and
upon whom every branch of our com
mercial and industral existance must
depend, will be the injured one.
We believe in abating nuisances,
and cigarette smoking is a nuisance
on a small scale compared with other
things which have a free reign in
South Carolina. The sale of impure
food-meats, flour sugar, etc., is a
nuisance and we believe it is against
the law; but there is no enforcement
and impure articles of food are sold
in every town in South Carolina. The
Shylock practices of cotton factors, to
require commissions upon cotton
they do not handle, is not only a
nuisance, but a robbery, yetdj-o
not see wL.ere any of our humanitar
ians in the legislature have given the
matter a thought. Let cigarettes
The newspapers are making a big
to-do over the fact that Governor El
lerbe is recognizing the recommend
ations of the delegations irrespective
of factions. Governors Tillman and
Evans did the very same tning except
in such counties as gave a majority
against the Democratic party nomi
nees. Governor Tillman would not
respect the recommendations of Rich
land because that county cast its vote
for Haskell. -Governor Evans re
fused the w'sl-es of Charleston and
Richland, because those counties cast
their vote for Pope, and we dare say
that if Ellerbe had an independent
opponent and an. county in the State
had acted like ChL. iston, he would
have felt under no o 'igations to re
sptct their wishes in the matter of
appointments and would have acted
as his predecessors. Fortunately,
such a contingency did not arise in
our last election and Governor Eller
be can do nothing but abide the re
sult of the primary. We favor doing
away with factional lines because
there are no issues but what the
Democratic party can agree upon,
and we feel that Governor Ellerbe
was brought upon the seene at a
time when all of the people will lend
him a helping hand to bring back
some, who through passion and dis
appointment, allowed themselves to
drift away. The people of South
Carolina are almost a unit on nation
al issues, in fact one of the strongest
exponents of South Carolina's nation
al politics is Editor Gonzales, of the
Columbia State, and every newspa
per reader knows he hated Tillman
and Evans and the Reform party
with a holy hatred, but in national
affairs Tillman and Gonzales were
like Siamese twins, aud both made a
hard fight for the people's cause.
They were together in national poli
tics and we see no reason for any ir
ritating contentions in onr State pol
COUNTY GOVERNMENT TOP
The county government law is un
dergoing considerable discussion
among some of our leading men and
newspapers. Is the present law any
improvement over the old law ? As
far as this county is concerned, we
do not believe our county affairs are
being administered as cheap as under
the old system and we doubt the wis-.
dom of having so large a board to
manage affairs. The law as operated
for the past two years convinces us
the machinery is entirely too cumber
some to do good work, and instead
of it saving the taxpayers ~it will be
an additional cost. We feel certain
an amendment to the county govern
ment law which will make the con
cern less cumbersome would be ac
ceptable to both the people and the
commissioners who have its manage
Bank circles in Charleston received
quite a shock recently by the cashier

We understand that the bank lost

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SY STEM.
That there are defects in our
school system no one will question,
yet what concerns us most is not the
defects so much as the remedies to
be used to correct these defects. The
crying need of the hour is more mon
ey and better teachers. Every
thoughtful mind will at once see how
the one is dependent upon the other.
In order to bring out the above ideas
a little clearer, let us take a glance at
the system as it now is. The
amount of money now raised by tax
ation for school purposes is sufficient
to run the schools only from two and
a half to four months during the
year at salaries-well not salaries ex
actly-but pay at from $15 to $25 per
month. Unfortunately, to the minds
of a great many who earn much less,
these amounts appear quite large and
sufficiently ample, but are they
really ? Well, for some teachers it is
big pay for the return given, but for
teaching, real teaching it is not. We
find dotted over our country numer
ous little schoA houses that during
the greater part of the year there is
no signs of use whatever, but just be
fore the public term opens, the house
is put to rights and the teacher, fre
quently his or her first term, takes
charge wvith many misgivings as to
the duties- to be performed. Time
flies by as usual and the children
flock in from the surrounding com
munity many of whom are ill sup
plied with the necessary text books.
By and by winter sets in and bal
weather and sickness together cuts
down the average wonderfully, and
by the time the teacher is getting in
to the work and the pupils beginning
to accomplish something, the district
trustees announce that the money is
out and the schools must be closed.
Thus ends the chapter of many
schools over the -State until tL.3 fol
lowing year rolls around. Duing
the interval the boys and girls are
made to help on the farm and in a
few short fleeting years every oppor
tunity for obtaining anything like a
common school education is lost and
they pass out and become citizens, ill
prepared to battle life's problems or
to be properly enthused with the val
ue of an education so as to do more
for their children than was done for
them. To revert to the teachers it is
but natural that where the standard
of education is low that those will as
pire to teach who feel themselves su
perior in knowledge to those whom
they propose to teach, although the?
feel and know their own weakness.
Unfortunate is the lot of people so
situated. Again others well qualified
to teach accept positions in the com
mon schools to gain experience to
serve them in gaining better posi
tions or they teach to make their ex
penses while they study a profession.
Poor pay makes poor teachers and
until we wake up to that fact we can
not expect to overcome these difficul
Various methods have been used
to raise money to run schools nine or
ten months during the year, and
wherever a school is kept running all
the time (regular term) you will find
there a community in a better condi
tion, socially, intellectually and finan
cially. If the public cannot raise the
requisite amount to carry on the
school the full term, the patrons of
such a school should go down into
their pockets and raise the balance.
If the money is there they can de
mand the proper talent and will get
it and it will thus be the means of
raising the standard and producing
more professional teachers. But
where the people are content to send
to a little school during the time it
is fostered by the public, and when
the public term expires just stop and
let what little good there was done
die out they can never hope to build
up n first-class school and get tirst
Teaching is the worst paid profes
sion there is,and yet the most impor
tant. Just investigate and ascertain
how many teachers have been teach
ing five, ten or twenty years in the
common public schools. Few in
deed Why?- Bea there is no
inducement to a professional teacher,
and those who do continue to teach
under such conditions do so because
circumstances force them and not be
cause their heart is in the work. It
must be a profession in which all the
time and talents are employed and
what man or woman can do it or will
do it, if he has to engage in other oc
cupations to make enough to sup
port himself on ?
All these are vital living questions
and must be solved in the near fu
ture if we are to raise ourselves into
that position that our natures de
mand. Our legislative bodies are to
be thanked for the interest they have
taken in education and for the finan
cial support they have provided for.
The most has been done for higher
institutions, and we now have colle
giate privileges second to none in the
country. It is considerably encour
ageing to watch the tendency of the
times, and it is to be hoped that in
the near future steps will be taken to
raise sufficient funds by taxation to
support the schools of the State in a
decent style, so that the institutions
of higher grade can stand upon them
as their foundation. If better school
facilities were furnished it would
stimulate educational work and
would produce more who would de
sire a collegiate education and thus
there would be less need of so much
financial aid to these higher institu
tions by the State. In other words,
if the masses were to be educated
there woultd be more material for
the colleges, hence income enough to
make them self-supporting. As it is
thousands can never hope to obtain
a collegiate education because they
never get enough to enable them to
take hold of the offers. 'ided by
appropriation an in favor of
sory education; but before we
can have it we must first provide the
means. E. J. BRowNE,

UNCLE GEORGE TILLMAN.
The Crime of His Early Career and
the Way He Expiated It in Jail.
Rome Ga., Capt. B. F. Clark, a re
sident of this city, was in his young
er days a neighbor of the noted Till
man family, and knew both Benjamin
R. Tillman and his brother, George
Tillman, until recently a member of
congress from South Carolina.
George was by far the most promis
ing and in several years older than
"When he was a young man in 18
58, I think," said Capt. Clark, "he
was a candidate for the state senate.
He had served for several years in the
lower house, and when he offered
himself for the senate there was nd
man who stood a better chance of
winning than George Tillman. He
was eloquent and active,and had in
spired in the minds of the people of
the district the highest idea of his
ability and integrity, so that no one
doubted that he would be elected.
He was stumping the district, and
during his tour he stopped one nig ht
in the town where I lived, and after
supper started out for a little amuse
"In that day and time, L am sorry
to say, gambling was considered one
or the ordinary vices of a gentleman,
and very little attention was paid-to
the saloons where porker, roulette,
faro and other games were hidd'ige
in by the young bloods Of tize coud2
try as a fashionable sport. George
Tillman entered a saloon and took a
seat at a table and was soon absorb
ed in the game. The play proceeded
quietly enough for a while, and then
a dispute arose and hot words follow
ed. The dealer was directly opposite
Tillman,and held in his hand an ivory
knife used in putting up the- coun
"Tillman was veiy nearsighted, and
as the lie passed between him and
the dealer hie sawv the latter raise the
paper knife, and mistaking it for a
bowie knife, drew his pistol and shot
the man dead. In the confusion that
followed he quietly slipped out of the
room, and mounting his horse, rode
away at full speed. The man whom
he had killed was not thought much
of in the community, being regarded
as rather a sorry citizen, and not
much effort was made to apprehend
Tilhnan, who soon found means to
get out the country.
"He went to Nicaragua and served
with the ill-starred Walker in his ro
mantic career in that country until
after his downfall, when he went fur
ther south, visiting various South
American countries. Finally he went
to Cuba and fought with the Cuban
patriots, but wvhen their efforts for
freedom ended in disaster, he decid
ed to return to the United States. He
had gone through so many hair
breadth escapes and thrilling adven
tures that hie grewv weary of the wild
life, and came back to stand his trial
and to trust his fate to a jury,
"His promising public career had
been suddenly cut short by that un
fortunate affair in the gambling sa
loon, but he still had many friends in
Edgefield who were willing to parti
ally condone his youthful offence.
He was tried and confessed to the
killing, but disclaimed any malice in
the matter. I heard his statement in
open court, and he said that he
thought that Christian, the man
whom he shot, was advancing on him
with an open bowie knife, and be
lieving that his owvn life was in dan
er, he fired in self defence.
"The jury was disposed to be len
ient with him and he was found guil
ty of manslaughter. The judge im-~
posed the lightest penalty under the
law for the crime, two years in the
common jail of the county. A cousin
of mine was jailer. and he knew Till
man well, and had a great deal of re
spect for him. They were both Free
Masons, and when T'illman was sent
to jail to serve out his sentence he
made a proposition to my cousin, the
jailer. He told him that if lie would
permit him to occupy a certain room
on the grotind floor of the jail he
would fit it up comfortably and re
main in there during the two years
of his sentence. He gave the jailer
his wvord as a Mason and a gentleman
that lie would never set foot on the
ground during his term of imprison
ment. The jailer took him at his
word, and he proceeded to furnish
the apartment in comfortable style.
He had a lot of books carried to the
jail, and in his room for two years be
lived, receiving occasional callers and
tanctinga goodn deal of business
as a legal adviser to those who chose
to avai! of his skill and knowledge as
"But never did lie cross the
threshold of that room. The door
stood open when the weather was
fine, and the outer gate of the prison
was freqnently left unclosed, so that
he might have walked out at almost
any time without molestation while
the jailer was occupied with his du
ties about the prison, but George
Tillman had given his word that he
would not set his foot on the ground
until his term expired, and he valued
his promise too highly to violate it in
the slightest. I have seen him sit
ting on the porch with his feet dang
ling over the edge, but he never let
them get any nearer the ground. He
was a hard student and during the
two years of his incarceration he
read a great deal, and acquired a vast
fund of information. He had trav
eled so extensively that with the
large fund of book learning he was
one of the best informed men in the
State when he came out of prison.
"When the two vears were out he
packed up his things and left the
place where he had resided more like
an honored guest than like a State
convict, and resumed his law prac
tice. People seemed to have lost
sight of the fact that he had served a
term in jail, and he soon established
himself in the estimatior. of the com
munity, and it was not long before
be was nominated for Congress and
elected with, very little opposition.
For sixteen years he represented his
district, and only recently lie suffered
his first defeat. His has been one of
the most remarkable careers in the
history of this country. He has sur
mounted every obstacle that fate has
thrown in his way, and has overcome
some difficulties that must have de
barred other men of less determina
tion and streugth of character, but
that experience in jail, of which I had
personal knowledge, before the war,
was, I think, without parallel in the
prison history of the country."-New
