AN APPEAL TO CAESAR.
After all the Dispensary fuss cr
ated by Col. T. L Gantt, editor
the Piedmont "Headlight," he on
succeeded in giving certain polit
cians and newspapers a subject
quote from when they endeavor, I
insinuation, to besmear the charact
of Senator Tillman. Gantt, in h:
interviews and in his editorials, mad
broad hints at Tillman's dishonest
He almost said that '[illman receive
rebates through the Dispensary, bi
with his usual shrewdness he left
hole to crawl out at, whenever th
falsity of his charges were made a]
parent. Gantt has certainly endeas
ored to injure the Dispensary syster
and the question in our mind is, di
he dlo this with any mercen ary m<
tive? No one will ever accuse Gan
of being a fool, but on the contrar:
he is one of the "slickest ducks"i
the State. If McLaurin's estimat
of him is correct, who knows ho
much he received from the opponen1
of the Dispensary for all the rack<
he kicked up. His cry for an inves
tigation from "Hell to Holland" wit
the "opponents of the Dispensary" t
sit as judges, may sound to son:
people as an honest wish for a tho:
ough investigation, but to us it dot

Gantt may paw the earth and 1
may fill the air with his exclamation
of ~"my hands ai-e clean" and wit
his insinuations against others; bu
before he will be able to make muc
of an impression, he will have to gis
a better explanation of his own cor
duct than he has so far.
B. R. T., not "Beckroge's robbe
trunk," but B. R. Tillman, you stoo
up in the United States Senate chan
her and demanded an investigatic
of certain charges made by new;
paper correspondents against Sen
tors. You did right. We hope a
investigation will be made; but
home a newspaper editor and a ma
who has professed to be your frien<
within the last few days made seriot
charges against you. What will yo
do about it? 'Tis true, yot
former colleague said that "Larry ca
out-lie them all," but in the light<
recent events, we do not think yo
will be doing yourself nor your ad
mirers justice by disregarding tI:
charges made against you, even by
man with Giantt's reputation.
Senator Tillman, if you value th
confidence reposed in you by thoi
sands of honest men, [obtain a leas
of absence from Washington an

ple tbeir confidence in you has nc
been misdirected. Come home an

have been breathed against you.]
will not do to "consider the source.
Charges have been made, and yo
must refute them and then helpt
expose all of the rottenness, whethe
it is stealing, bribery or conspiracy.
Not a few people think that ther
are men not directly connected wit
the Dispensary, who are manipulat
ing this great big scandal for a pol
tical purpose. We well remembe
how one of our R5eform leaders in thc
last campaign was defeated and thc
same tactics are being again resorte
to for the crushing out of somebod
else. The people feel that they wer
buncoed in the last primary and the
do not want to make any more mis

THERE ARE RUMORS AND RUMOR:
nIn last MIonday's issue of the "Nev
iand Courier" M1r. August Kohn, ti
able Columbia correspondent il
tdulges in a lot of speculation wit
regard to the difficulty in runnir
down bribery in the Dispensar
etransactions. He illustiates by sul
posing very ingeniously,' transactic
between "The Make Mone'y Distillir:
~Company" and "M1r. B.oodle."
-member of the State Board of Contro
in this illustration he shows that
is almost impossible to catch a mc
who has made up his mind to be
-rascal; then he goes on to speak<
sthe various rumors afloat. We agr4
with this correspondent, if a memb<
-of the Board is bribed with cash,
ewill be hard to find it out, but if v
are to take rumors as a starting has
hit would be a good idea to find or
whether there is any truth in the r
port of an official, an ex-official an
-others being gengaged in a gaix
.of poker with a representative of
eliquor house, and in that game seve:
sal hundred dollars wvas won by tb
official, ex-official and others; tb
report says, the liquor ma
man was DaN for, to a considerab]
sum, but he was consoled with heav
-orders from the board. If this r<
port be true it strikes us as a shrew;
iway of receiving bribes. Then ai
other report is, a man once connecte
-with the Dispensary, and whot b<
nfore his connection with the institt
~.tion wats very poor, has since bee
able to go to at least one of the C<
lumbia banks and have a lot of 01
thundred dollar bills changed ft
smaller ones. Of course, if a ma
,has large bills he has a right to ha'
isthem changed for smaller ones, hi
uin these hard times when a man
irfinances aie about as well knowvn t
nthe public as to himself and it
known that before he held a certai
position he could not handle $10
- bills, but does now, it at lea.
emakes curious people suspicious an
athey wonder where, and how did 1
make the raise? Especially so, whe
ethe whole country has been stirre
~-up with all manner of charges<
corruption in connection with tl
Dispensary management. If

urred they should he, together wit

Dispensary is found out to be band

, The Greenville "News" has jumped
upon the lecture platform and with
- out leave, cause, or provocation as
), far as we are concerned, proceeds to
st read certain Reform newspapers a
r'lecture on journalistic good manners.
al THE TniEms is among the number that
- has fallen under the "New's" dis
it pleasure. Just when we gave cause
>t for such an outburst of scolding we
ecan not recall, and why we should be
ig classed among those that gave per
sonal offense we do not know. Cer
-tainly the "News" cannot complain
e1 of us on this score, as we make it a
s rule never to hit unless hit at first.
- There is no such thing as turning
e the other cheek and if striking back
is to leave us out of the category of
"Reform papers which are edited by
.* gentlemen," we can only say that we
agree with' the "News" when it says.
-"A jackass cannot edit a newspaper
eforcibly," and we congratulate the
t"News" on the discovery of the lack
h of force in its editorials.
vThe Charleston "Sun" spoke of
Captain D. J. Bradham as a Guber
n natorial possibility, and other news
gpapers are speaking of our dis
A. tinguished fellow-citizen for other
; high positions. As far as his being a
t Gubernatorial possibility is con
nceined, wve are sure he would not
a think of allowing his name used in
>that connection against Governor
eEllerbe, who is doing his duty wit
rout fear or favor, and we feel certain
tthat a second term will be given him
e without any material opposition.
sCaptain Bradham would fill any
tposition with credit, and we would
like very much to see him occupying
da place on the State ticket as Secre
e tarv of State.
Presid~ent E. H. Aull, of the State

of it and the more will be the merrier.
Senator Tillman has wiitten a let

ome Timely Remarks on an Oft-te
The city editor of a newspaper nearl:
very day is importuned to leave this piect
f news or that piece of news out of the pa
icr, and duty to the public, as well as tc
is paper, often requires him to refuse suela
equests, while personally he might like tc
omply with them.
The Augusta "Chronicle" has an editorial
n this subject which covers the whole
;round so well that it is here reproduced
"'he request to leave out news that con
es us or our friends is as natural, per
taps, as the desire to have all the news
rinted about other folks for our entertain

r ours, leave it out; if it is about the other
allow, print it, seems to be the natural im

eel : we are making an entirely reason
h request when we ask the suppression
f an item that concerns us, even though
tbe an entirely legitimate matter of news,
nd one which we would expect to see in
he papers if it concerned anybody else.
"But such requests are very embarrassing
o the newspaper man. There is not an
nforunate man or woman, who inot an

"This is humain nature. Bat should a

hat persons who requiest the suppression

thich is regarde-d as meritorious:
