Entered at the Post OfMlee at Manning as
BOYCOTT TILLM AN.
The News and Courier proposes to
boycott Tillman in the future pro.
viding it can get the other daily pa
pers in the State to join it. The oth
ers may enter the combine, but it
will not have the effect of keeping
Tillman from the public, as his light
cannot be hidden beneath the preju
dice of our morning contemporaries.
In the last campaign a combination
among the morning papers was ef
fected and it was allowed to go
through, but when an arrangement is
made to keep the people from hear
ing from their trusted leader, the peo
ple will play the game of boycott too.
We venture to say that if a combina
tion is made to keep Tillman's utter
ances from the people, the circulation
of the Georgia dailies will increase
wonderfully. The people want to
know what Tillman says, and they
will knev at any cost, so it is foolish
ness to talk about ignoring him. We
do not always agree with Mr. Till
man, and whenever we disagree with
him, we say so, but in the main his
utterances meet with our approval,
and the majority of white voters in
South Carolina have every confidence
in him. When such a newspaper as
the News and Courier makes a prop
osition to other papers to ignore Mr.
Tillman, when the fact is known that
the News and Courier did not stand
up to the Democratic party in the last
national contest, and that Tillman
worked night and day for the Demo
cratic cause, a suspicion creeps into
the minds of the people that there is
much method in the News and Cou
rier's madness. A newspaper repre
senting the financial views of the
News and Courier catnot and will
not be a great obstacle in the way of
a man whose mind and heart is with
and for the people. We imagine that
every newspaper in the United States
opposed to the silver cause would
gladly ignore Tillman and McLaurin,
and for that matter the greatest of
leaders, William Jennings Bryan; but
all of the daily newspapers do not see
the wisdom of making an arrangement
for that specifia purpose.
In this State, fortunately for the
people, the daily newspapers do not
agree on national politics, hence an
arrangement to ignore the represent
atives of Democracy could not be ef
fected, but on State politics the daily
papers are antagonistic to Mr. Till
man, and if they dared, his name
would never appear in their columns.
We think the News and Courier's
proposition so absurd that we repro
duce it for our readers to chuckle
over the effort of that paper, to make
itself and its colaborers a gnat on the
"There is one thing, however, wve
would like to say to 'all the morning
papers in South Carolina.' Would it
not be a patriotic thing if we should
- ong ourselves, and before
the people a. we serve, at the be
ginning of the Net, ' r, not to per
mit our newspapers to - for
the purpose of magnifying the politi
cal tramps who have acquired promi
nence and position partly at least, if
not largely, by our help.
"Senator Tillmnan is a newspaper
product. He was brought up out of
a modest obscurity by the News and
Courier. He did not turn out well.
He has done this State more injury
than any other man in its history. .He
desires to be kept before the people
-whether by inventing some new
scheme to keep the people apart or
by airing his personal and family
matters in public, he does not care.
What he wants is publicity. Brethi
ren, is it not possible to keep him2
within bounds? We would not re
strict his liberty of thought, his free
dlom of speech on all proper occasions
and for all public purposes, but he
says a great many things that are not
worthi publishing. The agreement
between the Columbia and Charles
:on newspapers during the last Sena
tolial campaign in this State would
ubake the basis for an excellent work
iug arrangement in the future politics
of this State. Doubtless all the daily
newspapers in the State will see the
wisdom of such an arrangement."
CONSUMPTION POSITIVELY CU-RED.
Mr. Rt. B. Greeve, m?:rchant, of Chil
howie, Va., certifies that he had consump

but got no relief; spent many nights sit
tinog in a choir; was induced to try Dr.
King's New Discovery, andl was cured by
use of two bottles. For past three years

Tr. King's New Discovery is the gran dest
remedy ever made, es it has done so much
for hiu4 anid also for othe rs in his comimu

Senator Mark Hanna does not
seem to have serene sailing through
the Ohio General Assembly for
election to the United States Sen
ate. He has strong enemies in the
Republican camp, and they may yet
defeat him. As far as the Democratic
party is concerned, it would as soon
have Hanna elected as any other Re
publican, unless the other man was a
free silver advocate. If a gold Re
publican must be elected from Ohio,
Hanna deserves the plum for his suc
cessful services to that party.
Elsewhere we publish what may be
termed "hot stuff " from Senator Till
man in reply to recent criticisms.
The Senator has not been out of his
sick bed long enough to look at
things with a smile on his face. Sen
ator Tillinan, in our judgment, made
a mistake in the tone of his reply and
his dragging in the name of Major
Hemphill of the News and Courier
was entirely unwarranted, as that
gentleman had not indulged in the crit
icism the Senator complains of. We
admire Senator Tillan because we
believe him to be an honest man, but
then our admiration of him does not
go to the extent of hiding his mis
takes. There are some things in the
letter that are well said, and there
are others that should have been left
unsaid. The friends of Senator Till
man knew his position in the race be
tween his brother and Ta~bert, and
they had no fault to find with him for
his neutral position, and his friends
(o not now blame him for resenting
an attempt to drag his family affairs
before the public, but be should do
so in a proper manner, and not go out
of his way to strike an unoffending
individual as he did Major Hemphill.
SENATOR TILLMAN TALKS.
He Replies to an Editorial in "the
State"-Explains His Course.
United States Senate,
Washington, D. C.,
December 31, 1897.
Editor THE TIMES:
The enclosed statement has been
forwarded to all the morning papers
South Carolina by this mail, and
you can print it if you desire.
B. R TiuAN.
I have nearly always ignored the
slanders and falsehoods which have
from time to time appeared in the
papers in South Carolina which have
opposed me since I have been in pub
lic life. I cannot correct all of the
statements or notice them, because it
is a waste of time, and most of my
friends know them to be false. As
for my ernemies, they believe them be
an'use tLey can see nothing good in
me, and l'ee to feed their hatred on
any food that keeps it alive. I de
parL from this rule in the present in
stance because it involves a personal
and familiar matter.
In the Columbia State of yester
day the following editorial appeared:
"SE.FISH, NOT FIEDISH.
"Senator Tillman is reported to be
a very sick man, but it is said that
when the possibility of his brother
George becoming a candidate for
Governor was suggested he managed
to say that he would take the field
against him if his health permitted.
The evident hatred B. R. Tillman
bears his elder brother, a hatred
which led him to oppose if not defeat
him for Congress, is something fiend
ish. A campaign with the two Till
mans as star actors would be a rec
ord-breaker for ferocity.- Spartan
"The Herald is unjust to Senator
Tillman. He does not hate his
brother George, and it ,vas not hat
red that influenced his course in the
congressional campaign of 1892. It
was merely selfishness. He was
afraid that Talbert would run against
him for Governor and cause his de
feat, so he turned him into George's
preserve-not to defeat George, but
to get him out of his own way.
"So now when he threatens to run
against his brother for the Gover
norship next year it does not imply
hatred. It means that he considers
the perpetuation of the dispensary
necessary~ to keep alive the factional
issue, on which he relies for re-elec
tion to the Senate in 1900. He would
not object to George's election if it
did not interfere with his own plans.
But as it surely would do this, he is
prepared to sacrifice Brother George
as he did before.
"Of course he has no notion of
runing for Governor himself, for he
will not let go the Senatorship on
any chance whatever. He only means
that he will put up a proxy for the
office if he cannot otherwise disturb
the peace. We are not at all sure
tat the success of Ellerbe on a
quasiprohibition and unity platform
would not be quite as offensive to
him as that of his brother on a
straight license platform.
Both of these editorials are the
double distilled essence of falsehood
and "fiendish" malignity.
I have not seen Mr. J. B. Bussey,
the correspondent for the State in
this city, during my illness or since
my recove ry, except to pass him on
the street and bow, and I have sail
nothing to him about South Caro
lina affairs, and I have not said to
him, or any other person, a word
about opposing George D. Tillman
for Governor. What I have said I
will repeat: that I will stump the
State, if need be, next summer in be
half of the dispensary law, and that
without regard to who may be in the
Irace as candidates. I propose to
stand by the lawv in the Senate and in
the State; not to "keep alive the fac
tional issue," but because I believe it
is the best solution of the liquor prob
lem. I don't "rely on factionalism"
to re-elect me, should I offer for re
election. I did not create factional
ism in South Carolina. N. G. Gon
zales and J. C. Hemuphill are its au
thors, and they fanned the embers of
the fight of 1890 into flames in 1892,
and their undying hatred for me
comes from their retirement as rulers
Now, in regard to my "hatred" of
my brother George, and my aiding
Mr. Talbert to beat him for Congress
Every leading Reformer in the Sec
ond Congressional District knows it
is nntrue. Not a scintilla of evidence,
oral or written, exists or ever existed
to show that I assisted Mr. Talbert. I
was absolutely "hands off," and that
at my brothers request. Mr. Talbert
ran for Congress, as he had a right to
do, and was elected. He received no
advice or help from me. Every well
posted man in the State knows wby
George Tillman was defeated, except
The treacherous Spaniard who
makes the charge of betrayal and un
brotherly conduct against me only
advertises his own depravity and
blackness of heart.
Talbert could no more have beaten
me for Governor than Sheppard did,
and no one knows it better than the
man who makes the assertion to
prove my "selfishness."
If these editorial "pacificators" real
ly want "peace" in Suth Carolina,
they had better leave me and ny
family relations alone and pursue the
policy of bamboozlement, which is
their last tack in State politics. If
my retirement is the only condition
of "peace," it cannot be brought
about by lying. B. R. TILM.A:.

A Short Sessin.
One of the most urgent needs of
the State, just at present, is a short
session of the Legislature. South
Carolina solons will gather in this
city next Monday to make new laws,
modify old ones and perform such
acts, in their line, as are suggested by
the situation in the State.
The dispensary will be the princi
pal subject of debate and legislation.
It is very generally understood that
this law will stand in principle, but
certain modification and changes will
be wrought to make its execution and
enforcement smoother. The profit
feature of State liquor selling will
probably be done away with in order
to remove competition by original
package and blind tiger establish
ments. Heretofore when the dispen
sary has been charging a profit, these
other two branches of trade have
been enabled to come into active
competition with the State. By do
ing away with the profit on State
whiskey all opposition will disappear,
for no individuals care to transact
business for the benefit of their
Now, if legislators are to make
these changes in the dispensary law,
discuss prohibition and general mat
ters, let them do so quickly, adjourn
and go home. There is no necessity
for putting the State back any fur.
ther financially by paying $4 a day to
legislators and footing a lot of other
expenses that are incident to a ses
sion of law-makers.
The agricultural and commercial
conditions of the State will not per.
mit of much loafing this year, and as
long as the Legislature is in session
there is going to be very little work
done throughout the country.
Let our legislators, then, win the
merited approval, "well done," fron
their constituency by transacting all
the necessary business and doing so
with neatness and dispatch.-Colum

A Delightful Picture.
A homelike picture of Mrs. Washing
ton and her favorite granddaughter is
given by Mrs. James Gibson, who fre
quently visited her when, as the pres
ident's wife, she resided ir Philadel
phia, then the capital of the United
States. Mrs. Gibson's language is quot

Mrs. Washington was in the habit
of retiring at an early hour to her own
room, unless detained by company, and
there, no matter what the hour, Nellie
(Miss Custis) attended her.
One evening my father's carriage be
ing late in coming for me, my dear
young friend invited me to accompany
her to grandmamma's room. There, aft
er some little chat, Mrs. Washington
apologized to me for pursuing her usual
preparations for the night, and Nellie
entered upon her accustomed duty by
reading a chapter and a psalm from the
old family Bible, after which all pres
ent knelt in evening prayer.
Mrs. Washington's faithful maid
then assisted her to disrobe and lay her
head upon the pillow. Nellie then sang
a verse of some sweetly soothing hymn,
and then leaning down received the
parting blessing for the night, with
some emphatic remarks on her duties,
improvements, etc. The effect of these
judicious habits and teachings appeared
in the granddaughter's character

Mrs. Brandt, wife of the Rev. J. L.

known to be 106 years old. It was
brought from Virginia to Indiana at an
early day. Altogether 40 sons of Indi

which is still doing service in the home
of the Rev. Mr. Brandt. The cradle was
