In our last issue we disclaimed
knowing W. D. Smith, the gentleman
who volunteered a health certificate
for "Uncle" George Tillman in reply
to our opinion of that 2entleman's
physical condition. We really could
not recall Mr. Smith, because there
are so many Smiths, but when we
learned that this Smith is the very
Smith who is city editor of the Co
Inmbia State, and a right good Smith
he is, we regretted to have lost sight
of him eve for a time. Why, Smith
there is nothing the matter with him;'
he is alright, even if he will fool a
fellow oocasionally by discarding his
every-day profession, and assume the
owlish look of a medical doctor. Who
would have ever thought that Smith
of the Colurbia State carried around
with him a roll of health certificates?
Smith, old boy, we are glad to have
discovered you, because a newspaper
correspondent of your achievements
to be unknown would be a calamity
indeed, but when you grind out any
more health certiflates, label them,
that in the effort you may not so eas
ily lose y our identity.
The report of the court of inquiry
has been transmitted to congress by
the President. It is a massive docu
ment but when summed up it is the
opinion of the court that the Maine
was destroyed by a sub-marine mine,
that no one on board of the ship wvas
to blame, and that the responsibility
cannot be fixed, from the evidence
add uced before the court. In other
words the Maine was destroyed by a
sub- marine mine by persons unknown
to the court. The finding is very
similar to that of a coroner's jury
after a lynching bee.
In sending in to congress the find
ing of the court President McKinley
accompanied the same with a mes
slage which must commend itself to
the good sense of the people through
out the Union. He evidently real
izes the horrors of war and at the
same time he believes in maintain
ing the rights and the dignity of the
United States. The message is a
document from a statesman who is
seeking the best interests of his gov.
ernent without a thought of the
political consequences. At this time

What we had to say about his condi

but an opinion and it is so taken b)

nothing more nor less than that Mr
Tillman is too old a man to be Gov
ernor, and we believe when he goes
upon the stump, the people wil
see whether or not we are correct it

why it is that the friends of Col. Till

Will.there be war between this
country and Spain is the all absorb
ing question of the day. The report
of the court of inquiry says the
Maine was blown up from an exter
nal cause, but it does not fix the re
sponsibility upon the Spanish govern
ment. President 'McKinley is keeping
a cool head and is not allowing him
self to be "carried off his feet" by the
popular demand for war, at the same
time he is making good use of the
$50,000:000 placed into his hands by
Congress, by putting the army and
navy in a condition to meet any
emergency. Whether or not there
is a collision between the United
States and Spain the war scare has'
put into circulation millions of dol
lars that probably would have re
mained locked up in treasury vaults
President McKinley has a hard
task perform in keeping down a hot
headed congress, and his task is still
greater because the whole country
without regard to section or party
joins'in the cry for war. The "Maine
incident" has almost become obscur
ed by the reports from American
representatives of the sad ;condition
existing among the non-combatants
in Cuba. The condition reported is
a picture of horror; thousands upon
thousands of men women and chil
dren are huddled together into the
little towns and they are on the verge
of starvation. Humanity demands
some immediate action, and it is
thought that this government will
require Spain to stop her warfare
and give to Cuba her independence.
Spain may not heed the United Staes
and it will force this government to
become the aggressor.
Many think that war is inevitable,
while others believe if proper steps
are taken, war will be averted and
both countries will get over the trou
ble, each with honor to themselves.
Information was received in Colum
bia a few days ago, which, if true,

must be some foundation for the ru

package shops is now traveling in the
State winding up the concerns in
which he is interested. The report is
that Simonton's decision, recently

Columbia, 8. C., March 2G.-The
changes on the political horizon
might be well compared to kleido
scopic pictures. The ever changing
views presented grow more interest
ing as the lights and shadows come

the picture constantly rearrange
themselves in groups, now beautiful

Two weeks ago with a possible
coalescence of prohibition ansd local
option forces in prospect, it seemed
that the result of the summer's cam
paign was settled, now lo: a change.
Possibly in the pride of power, pos
sibly instigated by some other im
pulse known only to fanaticism the
prohibitionists have shown them
selves stiff-necked in this matter, and
their chances of success have dwin
dled to a shadow. In the unchaste
but forceful language of Hogan's
alley, "they have dropped their
Prohibitionists have always been
regarded by conservative politicians
as impractical dreamers, but few
politicians were prepared for such an
exhibition of a lack of insight into
practical politics as has been exhid
ited within the past two weeks. Not
only have they refused to augment
their strength by concessions to a
large faction of the Democratic party
but the unreserved opinion has been
expressed that the fight should not be
confined within the- limits of the
Democratic party. This is largely in
view of the fact brought to their no
tice that the constitution of the Dem
ocratic party provides that before
any candidate shall be entitled to
vote at the primary be shall have fill
ed his pledge "that he is not, nor will
he become, the candidate of any fac
tion either privately or publicly sug
gested, other than the regular Dem
This clause was adopt by the con
vention of the Democratic party in
1894, and was intended to forever
prevent factional grabs as opposed to
the institution of free vote aud a fair
In spite of all this and the opinions
of many ivise politicians, there are
not a few who believe that the prohi
bition vote will be a surprise.
As a matter of fact, a study of the
field shows that the people are desir
ous for a change. They are dissatis
fled, but their views are chaotic, and
they want a campaign. They want
to see and hear the candidates, and
they do not want any more political
hacks. If the election were to be
held without a canvass and just now,
in the absence of startling develop
ments, it is the confident belief of
this correspondent that the people
would give Governor Elierbe an
other term. They will give him
another term anyhow, unless there is
a wonderful change in the minds
of the people, and in that case a
strong and vigorous fighter on the
stump, a man with a clear record,
who has not been "defiled with poli
tics," nor eves idcntified, to any ex
tent, with old factional issues starads
a show. It is understood that Sena
tor Tillman has at last about settled
upon Ellerbe as the most likely stand
ardbearer of the faction of which he
is the Abrahami, the Isaac and the
Jacob. How this may be a week
from now nobody can say, but at
present there is every reason to be
lieve that what is said above is true.
The "understanding" between El
lerbe and James Norton, who was
long considered as opposed to Eller
be, and who is no small potatoes in
poltics, has greatly strengthened El
lerbe's position. If he can maintain
himself on the stump he may be con
sidered a winner, but the Governor
is not a strong man physically. He
has made some enemies and many
friends. His policy looks to a man
up a tree, a series of unforeseen prob
lems, but then for a politician to solve
tbese things himself and to make the
people see them through his glasses
is two different things.
Some time ago it was intimated,
and at that time seemed very likely,
that the Patriarch of Poliitcal Dis
sention wvould lend his strong right
arm to R. B. Watson. Now this
seems a remote possibibility. There
are two reasons against this, one, Col.
Watson's opposition to State aid for
higher education, in which MIr. Till
man's toes were stepped on in the
Clemson college matter; andi, second,
that Col. Watson has felt the sting of
that ingratitude, that is sharper than
the serpent's tooth, and which is one
of the Pitchfork's conspicuous charac

Ex-Solicitor Schumpert has devel
oped no strength, and our opinion is
that he has more confidence in his
own ability than anyboby has in him,
but if he should agreeably surprise
his friends in this particular, he
stands as good a chance as anybody
else; there has been such a thing as
a horse to drop dead on the track.
In fact, the people may be looking
for the advent of a well-knit and
cleanly groomed dark horse.

still on the decadence, but there is

It is stated on good authority and
vouched for that Senator Tillman will
Itake the stump this summer and try
to rally the broken battalions of his
erstwile faithful. The slogan will
be the dispensary, and incidentally
he will urge whatever candidate
seemeth to him most likely to do his
bidding and be a winner, but the
doughty statesman hates a losing
fight, and has no use for a fallen hero.
The people however showed clearly
'their resentment of his interference
in the late senatorial race and there

School Government Anong tho
School discipline among small chil
dren as arnong large ones should be
gentle but firm. The school is a gov
ernment with the teacher at its head.
To make this a government that op
erates in all of its departments suc
cessfully. depends largely upon the
teacher. There should be a love and
sympathy existing between teacher
and pupils in order to obtain the
best results. Pupils do *not think
any less of teacher for being strict.
In fact it is a good thing for them to
grumble sometimes. Being strict
always demands more respect from
the children and brings about better
studying. The first work of the
teacher is to learn as nearly as pos
sible the dispositions of her pupils
and when this is accomplished the
teacher can then use government to
suit each individual case. No two
can be dealt with alike. With some
dispositions it may take the atrictest
discipline, while with others kind 'and
gentle means we find to be the best:
always. It is always best in all cas
es to use the gentlest means, resort
ing to harsh ones only when absolute

and not burden them with rules.

this, good results cannot be obtained.
' he enforcement of all of its rules
must be strictly adhered to.
Our next issue will be devoted to
Reading-Seud your papers to Edi
tors at once.
The best governed school is the
one that has the smallest number of
rules, especially in the beginning of
the session and do not add one un
less it is absolutely necessary.
You formulate a long code of laws
and are continually trying to catch
some one violating these, thus mak
ing the pupil feel that he is an out
law and that you are a detective
watching his every action. There is
a point, even in a child's nature, at:
which we may expect rebellion, and a
just one, too. Oppressive school reg
ulations cause continual trouble; the
pupils begin to think that thoy are not
guilty of a violation of school law un
less they are caught in the act and
this degrades their characters, for
now they will do things when the
te.cher is not present that they would
not do in his company.
The teacher's duty is not merely a
teaching of books, but an instilling
into their pupils a love for truth,
honesty and all of the other elements
of true characters; in so far as a
teacher fails to do this, so far does he
miss his calling. So, in the begin
ning, throw every pupil old enougah
to realize the meaning of honor, o
his honor to behave as he ought;:
'stress by frequent talks the individual
responsibility, showing that not the
teacher but the pupil determines the
character of the conversation on the;
play ground, and to a large extent
'their habits at home and in after-life;
what the boy is we may expect the
man to be. Even though the teacherlI
way be good, yet the tendency is to
follow the evil instead of the good,
and the influence of fifty will coun
teract tae good one may do. Oppress
them and they wiH rebel; honor them
ind they will respect it.
If you have too many regulatlons,
repeal them at once and notice the
ahange in behavior.
Most of the troubles take place at
recess any way, and the teacher can
easily hinder this by going out of the
chool-room and joining with the
hildren in all of their games. Make
them feel that you sympathize with
them in all of their plans, suggest new
games and try to excel in them; this
often adds wonderfully to the influ
ence of the teacher. Try to make
them look upon you as a friend, work
ing for their good, not as a taskmas
ter, who regards them as mere ma
chines from which so much work
must be obtained in a given length

Aim at Self-Government.
The late Emerson W. Keyes was a
very successful teacher. Many years
ago be told of his experiments with a
large scbool- to introduce self-man
agement. He made a list ot the pu
pils, and put it up, and marked five
of them with a cross, and gave thern
liberty to leave the room at any time
they wished, stating that these five
would not abuse the liberty. Grad
ually others were added to the list,
until, finally, all but the youngest
class. These were also allowed to
move about in the school-room with
out getting permission first. If a

Love and Authority.
The establishment of authority is
the first great necessary step toward
success in school government. But
it is not snificient in itself. It must
be rooted in and kept strong by the
power of love, with kindly words,
sympathizing thoughtfulness, watch
fulness against wounding their pupils'
feelings; teachers will not find it very
difficult to maintain the discipline
necessary for educational progress.
