The United States and Spain are
now looking fiercely at each other and
each are watching for an opportune
moment to strike a fatal blow. The
high seas are being patroled by our
fleet and every day comes the news of
the capture of some Spanish vessel
that left port before there was any
definite understanding as to what
would be the outcome of the diplo
matic correspondence between the
two countries; a number of these ves
sels left their havens fully expecting
that Spain and the United States
would settle. their differences with
the pen instead of the sword, and as
a consequence they were taken by
surprise. The American fleet has
taken several fine prizes and it has
also established a blockade of Ha
vana and other Cuban ports. From
the dispatches on Monday Morro
Castle fired several ineffectual shots
which were not even returned by our
vessels. The army is about ready
to invade Cuba, and besides the reg
ulars President McKinley has issued
a call for 125,000 men to do this
work. South Carolina's portion will
be about 2,000, which will be made
up principally, if not wholly, from
the organized militia.
The strange part of this war is
that Spain does not seem to have
any vessels around the Island to pro
tect her interests, and many think
she has a surprise in store for us;
just what it can be we have no idea.
Her fleet is about 2,000 miles away
from her Cuban possessions', from
which she has been ordered to va
cate, and so far there has been no
attempt made to prevent the United
States from doing as it pleased.
.The entire country is waking up
to the realization of the existence
of war and there is but one senti
ment, "This United Country's flag
must not be allowed to trail in dis
It will be some time yet bewforc re
liable news can be obtained as
the fighting for the prescnt will be
on the sea. The Associatedi Prcss
which accompanies the fleets will
have to be depended on for the best
information; at present all kinds oif
fake dispatches are being sent out,
and it is hard to tell what to believe;
for instauce, one report came that
the City of Paris was captured,
bound for Ainerica with 150 pass
engers and a cargo of munitions of
war; the next day the same vessel
w.s reported well on her way home
and out of danger, and also reported
to have put into a French port. But
when the war begins in earnest we
hope the dispatches will be more re
THAT TILLMAN LETTER.
We regard the letter from Senator
Tillmnan to General Anderson an in
excusable blunder, both upon the
part of the writer and the receiver.
The former displayed poor taste and
patriotism in advising a hypocritical
attitude for the State militia and the
latter showed poor judgment in giv
ing the letter to the press. None of
us have a hankering thirst for Span
ish blood nor for yellow fever, but
we have a pride to maintain and our
leaders who can vote their constitu
ents into a war should not afterwards
place those constituents in an unen
viable position in the sight of the
world. South Carolina has always
been found in the front line when the
country nee led her services, and as
it has been in the past, so will it be
now. The time has been put behind
us to question the wisdom of the
cause our government has pursued.
ur representatives in Congress dis
eussed that matter and they have de
creed wvar; these statesmen will not
have to share the privations and hard
ships of soldiers, but on the contrary
they will be enjoying their ease and
comfort in the luxuriously furnished
capitol, drinking A pollinaris lemonade
through a straw, while their constit
uents are brushing tadpoles out of the
way in order to quench their thirst
from a mud-puddle under a burning
tropical sun. We therefore think it
ill grace in our senior Senator advis
in the militia "to simply assume a
attitude of willingness and not be
outdon by other Stae." If weanre
as loyal to the nation as our senior
Senator would boast on the floor of
Congress, then for us "to simply as
sume an attitude of willingness"
would be hypocrisy and not the loy
alty that true men have to offer their
We were opposed to the war, as we
had a right to be, and if by reason of
our argument we could have done
something to have averted war we
would have felt proud of our efforts,
but war is here, the nation is involved
with a foreign foe and true Americans
must not "simply assume an attitude
of willingness," but they must ie
spond to the call of their country
with even more enthusiasm than the
Spaniards did when their ruler sound
ed the tocsin.
South Carolina has been horribly
misrepresented to the world by some
who ought not to have done so, and
when Governor Ellerbe calls for vol
unteers the editor of the News and
Courier who telegraphed to Wash
ington that "the South Carolina mi
litia refuse to fight in Cuba or out of
the State" will see that the militia of
this State are made up of men who
boast of being Carolinians and the
records of their ancestors. The mi
litia of South Caolina will, if neces
sary, go to Cuba or anywhere else
they are ordered to fight for their
country, "the land of the free and the
home of the brave."
We must think that Senator Till
man intended his letter to be kept
private, for we cannot conceive of
how a man with his usual good sense
and candor, could after his magnifi
cent speech in the Senate, advise a
course for the militia of his State
which would bring them into the
contempt of the world.
Congress has formally declared
war, and it is thought the first naval
battle will come off near Manilla, as
the fleet off Havana has been in
structed to delay the bombardment
of the Cuban capitol. South Caro
lina has been called upon for one
regiment of infantry, one battalion
and one heavy battery to rendezvous
at Charleston. Governor Ellerbe is
being beseiged with applications for
official positions and bomb proofs
generally. There will be a shaking
up of the President's cabinet by the
resignations of several of its present
members. Already Postmaster Gen
eral Gary and Secretary of State
Sherman have resigned, and it is
thought that the becretaries of the
army and navy Alger and Long will

"City of Paris," as it was feared she
would fall into the hands of the
enemy, but -yesterday's dispatches

Cape Cod to escort her fiom the
Grand Banks to New York.
The responses to the call for volun
teers are gratifiyingly great and
South Carolina will have her full
quota without any trouble.
The Monroe Doctrine.
Among the many reasons for war
withi Spain that have been advanced
by th.e eager belligerents of Congress
he Monroe doctrine has of course,
had a prominent place. When other
causes of war were disposed of in
arumxent, the Monroe doctrine was
the haven of retreat. This Monroe
doctrine, like charity, covers a multi.
tue of sins in the eyes of our states
men, and few of them seem to appre
ciate what the doctrine really is. It
is a pronouncement whicb cannot un
Ider any circumstances be brought to
lit the~Cuban question, unless the in
surgent government of the island is
recognized as the lawful administra
tion for Cuba. Some people seem to
Ithink that the Monroe doctrine places
us in the position o)f continental
guardian of all the territory of the
western hemisphere, whether that
territory be in possession of native
or foreign governments. They would
persuade us that under its declar a
tion wve have the right to direct the
governing of American colonies by
European suzerains. President Mon
roe did not advance such an extreme
doctrine, nor has any intelligent
statesmen ever interpreted his pro
nouncement to such a meaning. Pres
ident Monroe specifically declared
that "with the existing colonies and
dependencies of any European power
we have not interfered and shall not
interfere." The United States as
serted the right to prevent aggres
sions of Europe, not to disturbe ex
isting relations. Our government
will not permit Europe to acquire
another foot of American soil, nor
will wve assist in wrestinig from
Europe one foot of territory it now
holds. That is the Monroe doctrine.
Actually, the policy we have adopted
towards Spain in regard to Cuba is a
Iviolation oui our part of thle Monroe
doctrine. If any colony of Europe
in the western hemisphere shall gain
its independence from the mother
country, it comes at once within the
scope of the doctrine, and never
again with our consent, shall it pass
under the dominion of a foreign
power. But until this autonomy is
actually achieved and acknowledged,
we are pledged to respect the suzer
ainty of the foreign nation, and to
restrain interference with its author
In the Cuban affair, we may find
justification for interference, but cer
tainlv not under the Monroe doc
trine. If Cuba were free from Spain
with a government of her own, we
would be acting with full consistency
in resisting Spanish dominion of the
island, but wve, ourselves, have denied
the existence of a Cuban government,
and the island remains a possession
of Spain, technically at least.
However, we do not intend to dis
cuss the relation of the Monroe doc
trine to the Cuban question, but
wider sphere. The London Daily
Chroniele publishes a very interest
ing and significant letter from Sir
Frederick Pollock, professor of jur
isprudence in the University of Ox
ford, in which among other thinge,
appears the following:
"It would be a superfluous and
lefthanded compliment for England
to offer assistance to the United
States; but the time has arrived for
an Anglo-American entente or alli
ance which would do away with any
necessity for arbitration treaties. We
are the other great power of the
North American continent, and if we
consider our position we are equally
concerned with the United States to
forbid the interference of any Ameri
"The true keystone of an alliance
would be on the side of the United
States, a frank recognition of our co
equal standing beyond the Atlantic
in sight of Canada and our joint in
terest in cxcluding European compli
cations from America.
"On our side should be understood,
if not formally expressed, a readiness
to support the Monroe doctrine in
conjunction with the United States
by whatever means might be neces
sary or sufficient and against all com
"Such an alliance would make
wholly for peace, and, within its leg
itimate purposes, would be irresisti
ble; but if offense did come the first
shotted guns fired by the Anglo
American fleet might be the begin
ning of more ends than the objectors
There is remarkable force in this
declaration, which is a very intelli
gent interpretation of the American
policy to advantage of England. The
reasoning of Sir Frederick is entirely
sound. England has already acknowl
edged the Monroe doctrine and has
admitted it to a place in her interna
tional code. Yet if it applies for the
United States why should it not ap
ply for England? The claim that
Great Britain is the other great
power of the North American conti
nent is beyond dispute, and her in
terests in the western hemisphere are
second only to our own. Why then
should not England adopt and adapt
the Monroe doctrine to herself'? It is
not, perhaps, necessary that she
should, so long as the United States
observes it faithfully, but, equally so,
no more disadvantage can result to
England from its active application
than can come of its passive accept
ance by her. A literal and consistent
enforcement of the doctrine by the
United States will guarantee England
in her possessions in America, for
"with the existing colonies and de
pendencies of any European power
we have not interfered and shall not
interfere." Our obligations require
that we shall protect England in her
present possessions as well as that we
shall prevent aggression on her part
to new territory. The faithful en
forceient of the doctrine offers only
advantage to England. However, we
may depart, at some time from the
strict letter of the law. In the pres
ent complication with Spain some of
our statesmen are willing to make
the departure, and if the Monroe
doctrine were distorted to fit Cuba,
it might be made to apply to Eng
lish possessions at some brave mo
ment. The adoption of the Monroe
doctrine by England would safeguard
against this with a most tactful poli
ev. The Monroe doctrine would not
only be acknowledged by England
but also impressed. Our guardian
ship of the A merican continent's ex
ternal relations is acceptedl-and its
faithful administration is insisted
With Spain expelled from Cuba
and Porto Rico, England is the only
European power having possessions
in the western hemisphere, with the
excption,. of course, of Denmark's
West Indian islands and Greenland,
ano of some insignificant holdings of
France in the South Atlantic.
The United States' policy in the
North Americau continent suits E'ig
land admirably, and as a partner irn
its enforcement, only profit can come
to the island empire. If the United
States is sincere in it~s intent, it can
lose not hiug by such an arrangenent,
while England's acknowledgement
of the doctrine pledges her to its
observance and guarantees to her its
protection. But to England must
come the greater profit, for even
should we desire it, we could not
then change our naitionial policy to
extend our territory, without the
sanction of England, just as England
could not extend her dominion with
out our consent. The time is comn
ing when the United States will un
dertake the acquisition of other ter
ritory, the first indication of the new
policy being the Hawaiian annexa
tion scheme. With England an ac
tive partner in the observance of the
Monroe doctrine, we will not be able
t~o apply the new policy unless Eng
land consents, in other words the
situation will develop a necessity for
an alliance between the two powers
for control of the western hemisphere.
This is just what England wants, for
in making such an alliance she will
be in position almost to dictate its
terms, and assuredly she would not
neglect to impose conditions favor
able to her interests in the east as
well as in the west. The subject
opens up an interesting situation,and
it appears that England is to turn to
her advantage the enforced accept
auce of the Monroe doctrine, apply
ig it to a restriction of our future
desires, or evolving from it a partner
ship from which she will derive great
profit.- Charleston Post.
What the Cold Water Brigade is D~oing.
Their Mlovemaents Discussed.
Columbia, S. C., April 23.-Politi
ians are still busy trying to tigure
out the effect of the prohibition nom
inations. The country people as a
rule are disinclined to accept the pro
hibitionists' solution of the problem
and, like Ephraim of old, are wvedded
to their dispensary idol. The dis
pensary seems to fill an aching void
in the constitution of the rural citi
ze. There are several facts in co
netion with the dispensary which
the irural citizen has accounted to it as
righteousness, not the least of which
is that the scandals, and if scandalous
charges he true the evils of the sys
temn are so far removed from the
threshold of their own doors that the
stench offends not their nostrils.
weer, it isn annoo indicnation for
a clean election that the people are
actively discussing the real merits of
the questions which their ballots will
this summer decide.
A decision favorable to the dispen
sary from the United States supreme
court would forthwith stampede the
rural vote towards that camp. There
are some prohibitionists who claim
that the influence of Ben Tillman,
which by the way is still an unknown
quantity in politics, will in the event
of an adverse decision, be thrown to
wards prohibition, though it is not
claimed that he will support the
ticket put in the field by the recent
It is claimed by politicians gener
ally that the cause of the prohibition
ists has been weakened by putting
men on their ticket who were not in
favor of the platform. On the other
band, it is held by those responsible
for that ticket that in filling it out
they were at liberty to endorse any
candidate, even though opposed to
them. who could be relied on, in
their opinion, to use their official
power fairly and impartially as in ac
cordance with the expressed will of
The composition of the ticket has
been very much discussed, and really
has afforded a most interesting topic
because several of them were unknown
quantities in politics. The bead of
the ticket himself is Daniel come to
judgment in the political arena. He
certainly made a favorable impression
at the convention and his address
has been very higbly complimented,
but whether he can maintain his
equilibrum on the stump, is a ques
tion which the future only can set
The man who constitutes the
strength of the ticket is said to be
Geo. S. Mower, candidate for attor
ney general. He is a man of fine re
cord and one who possesses great
personal magnetism. If he makes an
active canvass he will change many
votes. Certain it is, that whether
successful or unsuccessful in this
campaign, be will soon occupy a
much more prominent position iu
state affairs than he does now.
It is a disappointment to many
that Mr. McCullough is not on the
ticket and his refusal to run is va
riously construed. It is generally
considered by his friends that be has
lost a fine opportunity to show what
there was in him. In fact, it is gen
erally conceded that this campaign
offers to a man of ability the richest
opportunity that politics has afforded
in South Carolina for many years,
or than will be afforded for many
year yet to come. Never before have
the people been so thoroughly educa
ted in political matters or so ready to
hear any man who bad something to
say that was worth saying and worth
hearing when said.
The long and expensive legal bat
tles that have been fought over our
laws and the adverse decisions of the
courts in so many of the questions
submitted have convinced the people
in a measure that the popular man
was not always the best man for pub
lic service, and that the political cate
chismn must contain some more ques
tion than "What facti'on do you be.
long to?" and "What do you thipk
of free silver at 16 to 1?" "In the
multitude of counsellors there is safe
ty" is an undisputed proposition, but
the general opinion is that if two or
three of those counsellors are without
reason and are deficient in intelligene
that the safety referred to is greatly
The composition of the next legis
lature will be very different from the
last, some familiar faces will be miss
ed because the heads behind them
have been weighed by the people and
found wanting. Others will be miss
ed because long service has entitled
the public servant to private rest.
Among theso will be Hon. G. L.
Bist, of Charleston, whose record in
the Senate would constitute a history
of our State during the most interest
ing period of latter years. His inten
ion of retirement has been announc
ed, and later this correspondent hopes
to give his indulgent readers some
interesting history in connection
with his services.
His announcement of the retire
ment of so familiar a figure in the
Sciate cannot fail to awaken a train
of recollection which, like tibose that
came to Lerooge on Christmas night
would fill a volume, and the veteran
legislature correspondents will always
associate 3Mr. Buist and the early dis
pensary legislation in our mninds.
Timie will not dim our recollectiou of
the night when this bill passed i~s
second reading in the Senate. The
red glare of the lights in the small
ours of the morning, the tired ofli
cers, the intensity of factional feel
ing, then at its height, the undaunt
eri minority in the Senate bravely,
though hopelessly, attempting to
stem the tidal wave of "t he move
ment" in legislation. It was under
the cireumstances that the gallant
major attempted the impossible task
of defeating the will of tue majority
by talking to death the dispensary
law, then on its passage. He started
out to speak six hours, and began by
offering an amendment to the general
statutes of the State, which he asked
to be read from the desk. This was,
of course, ruled out and as a substi
tute began to read Stevens' United
States history. This was also check
ed by the presiding officer, and va
rious members of the predominantI
faction began to guy the fillibusterer,
and the major in righteous indigna
tion forgot his task and dashed down
the book in his hand and launched
into such a phillipic as the Senate
has rarely heard. For forty minutes
he lashed the majority with fervor
and eloquence that the Senate burst
into round after round of spontan
eous applause when the major, bath
ed in perspiration and well nigh ex
hausted by his force, abruptly check
ed himself. Again he proceeded for
a while in a slow and deliberate man
ner to consider the bill clause, but
again when he came to taking away
the rights of citizens under the con
tempt proceedings, which he charac
terized as most monstrous, he forgot
himself again and burst into another
impassioned address wvhich so ex
hausted him that he was obliged to
give up the fight. He had spoken
four hours and at 5 o'clock in the
morning the bill passed its second

MISS CARRIE LEGG, Workman, S. C..
G. T. PuGH, Shiloh, S. C.,
By all means vary your regular
work, at least, once a week, and no
better time can be found &;r 11.i:;
than Friday afternoon; we fee-l that
the week's work is over and that a
relaxation is necessary. In the first
place, we would suggest that some
time be given to the current events;
no child should grow up ii. ignorance
of things that are now happening,
for to-day's accomplishments will be
history tomorrow. Newspapers might
be brought to the school house dur
ing the week for those who do not
have access to a daily papers and an
effort made to encourage keeping up
with the times. Devote some time to
the discussion of important affairs,
but do not bring up minor things,
unless for some special purpose.
Then,too,arouse an interest in Civil
Government by frequent talks on this
subject. Let two or three of the best
informed pupils prepare papers on
the different departments or kinds of
government and have those read,
then supplement the papers by short
talks. Learn all of the names of offi
cers and try to keep up with the
changes as they occur; this will add
interest to our study. Leave clear
impressions, for a confusion of ideas
is not much better than ignorance.
Another thing that should be insisted
upon as much as reading and spelling
is declamation. Never forget that
your pupils may be called upon to do
public speaking at some time in the
future, and in order to do this well
the training should begin early. Ap
point several scholars to speak every
Friday afternoon and devote as much
time as you can to training these; it
is far better not to do this at all than
to half do it. Correct position, voice
and gestures, and omit the last un
less they come spontaneously; ma
chinery movements are ludicrous.
Cultivate a desire for good literature
by frequent readings of selected pas
sages from standard authors; call at
teution to the manners, customs and
habits of different nations; show the
pictures of prominent men to the pu
pils; they should, at least, recognize
the pictures of most standard English
and American authors at first sight;
this time might be profitably devoted
to composing, reading, and criticis
ing compositions and letters; and in
sect and plant life would furnish ma
terial for several delightful afternoons.
Interest the children in your plans,
this is key note of success in this
WhIch Is1 Yours?
Friday afternoons can be made the
cream of the week or they may be re
garded as the weekly terror.
It is not best to devote the whole
afternoon to entertainment of any
kind,for fear it wijl lose its flavor and
cease to be a novelty. Try not to
have the same things two successive
Friday afternoons. Sometimes it is
well to give the management of the
occasion to the children themselves,
subject to the approval of the teacher.
What child does not like the cld fash
ioned "Spelling Match" or the "Mul
tiplication Match?" When can a
teacher find a more seasonable hour
for teaching a new song than on Fri
day aftenoon? Begin by allowing
the children to sing some of their
old ones, letting some of the best

means of helping along the real work
of the occasion. Any thing out of
the regular order of humdrum school
life, by a slight variation of the exer
cises often makes a child good and
studious for a whole~ week.

A Quo? ntion Club.
To a man who is not up a tree, the
following plan of spending Friday
afternoon has presented itself-not
every Friday afternoon, but. two out
of the month say, should be spent in
this way. But to the plan itself, it is
this, to have all your pupils of the
higher grades to provide themselves
with nice note books in which to take
down quotations from our best poets,
essayists, and critics. Let these quo
tations be gathered boy pupils,as much
so as possible, the teacher, of course,
taking a general supervision of the
work and making such suggestions
for advancement as may seem neces
sary. Quotations should be gleaned
from the general reading of the pupil
and not from books of cut and dried
quotations; for most pupils will tak6
more interest in quotations gathered
by themselves and their fellow stu
dents from their daily reading than
in any procured from books of quo
tatious, although the latter may be
Let the teacher, too, from time to
time contribute his share, no more,
to the common stock, taking care
that his quotations fill ouit lines that
may be neglectek by his pupils. If
his pupils are inclined to contribute
an over-supply, along lines of humn
or worldly wisdom, let him bring in
som -hing more serious. If, howeverI
pupils become too fond of furnishing
serious matter, the teacher should
bring in a few quotations of a lighter
vein. One of the chief aims is to
have a variety of these best sayings
of our best writers. Then on Friday
afternoon, let each pupil give his fel
low pupils the benefit of his week's
gleaning; let there be a general dis -
cussion of quotations given; let the
teacher select some of the best of
them and have them memorized by
himself and pupils.
This, it seems to us, w )uhi be a
pleasant and prolitable ~ay to spend
two Friday afternoons out of the
month; for all wvouldl doubtless take
delight in such work, and the, work
would stimulate a longing for go od
literature; finally, the storing away
in the memory of these good princi
pes of right living is of untold bene
