CONDITION AT 31ANILA.
The condition around Manila and
throughout the Philippines remains
about the same as during the past
ten days, so far :as whipping the
natives is concerned. Gen. Otis'
troops have had serveral sinall en
gagements and have taken some lit le
new territory, but as yet the natives,
which are commonly termed by our
authorities insurgents, show no dis
position whatever towards throwing
up and surrendering to the American
troops. The United States now has
practically the same condition upon
her hands that Spain did when she
was trying to subdue the Cubaus.
The exact conditions and principles
involved may not be the same, but
in many respects the Filipinos are
very similar to the Cubans. In fight
ing tenacity they are identical, and
with those same guerrilla methods
with which the Cubans fought the
Spaniards by running out of jungles
and 'pouncing upon them, then to re
tire into the brush where the Ameri
cans can hardly penetrate, the Filip
inos are now giving the U nited States
troops trouble around Manila and
floilo. The weather is now becom
ing so hot about Manila that many
of our soldiers cannot stand the sun,
while the Filipinos are undaunted,
and when troops of the natives come
out and fight with primitive bows
and arrows, while in another instance
one of the native commanders is
unable to wield his sword, yet with
one of his arms in a sling, he com
mands his followers while in battle;
it shows that these poor, half civil
ized people are fighting for freedom
and principle, and if the United
States wants to show them her hu
manitarian dealings, she must go
about it in some other way than
shooting them down in battle.
The treaty has now been ratified,
and Spaiii and all Spainish. control
has been entirely eliminated from
the situation. This is proper, that
the treaty should be ratified, for had
it not been, then the United States
would yet be technically at war with
Spain; hostilities being only ceased
by the terms of a protocol, and had
the treaty not been ratified when
hostilities were opened and continued
as they are now, the terms of the
protocol would have been violated,
and our government would yet he
fighting Spanish citizens. But the
treaty is now settled. Spain now has
nothing to do with the Philippines;
she has no more control over them
than England, France or Germany.
Technically the citizens of those
islands are citizens of the United
States, but the United States cannol
afford to go to war and shoot dowr
people upon such a technicality.There
is an underlying moral question
which we as a great moral and civil.
ized nation are bound to respect.
The United States did not begin war
for conquest, but for humanitariar
principles, and when we simply by
our superior strength, wrench from
Spain her possessions and set ui
over her citizens a government of
military authority and rule them al
the point of the bayonet and by
shooting them into submission, we
are precious little better, if any, that
were the Spaniards. The Filipinos
cannot understand our humanitariar
methods, and it is not surprising that
they do not. If the United States
wants to do the graceful thing let hei
offer some concessions to the Fili
pinos. We can afford to do it. We
do not need to annex them. We dc
not need any such citizens in out
body politic. But offer to allow thenr
the privilege of organizing some
sort of a government of their own
and assit them to do it, and whet
they are organized exercise a protec
torate over them and use our power
in preventing their being grasped by
some other greedy power. If we de
something of that sort, we will do the
act graceful, but there is nothing
gaceful in shooting down the citizenm
of a poor little sickly, half civilized
people and then gloating over om:
victories. If is like a good, big brag
ging boy flogging a little one and

The Republic of France is unfor
tunate. Only about a year and a
half ago Mr. Carnot, President, that
able and good man, who held the
love and esteem of most of the citi
zens of the republic, was assassinated
and fell the victim of an Italian's
stilletto. le was succeeded by M.
Cassimer Perier. Perier was a good
man, but was not in harmony with
the powers that were, and was out of
sympathy with the popular senti
ments that prevailed in many parts
of the republic, and so great was the
opposition to his administration that
he was soon forced to resign
rather than change the policies
which be clung to, or see
such disturbances as might in
evitably result in the destructi3n of
the republic itself. When he re
signed he was succeeded by my M.
Felix Fame, who possessed the
esteem and good will of the people
at large. Publiz matters had scarcely
settled down and the government
had scarcely begun to run smoothly
under the wise head and guiding
hand of Felix Fame when the whole
world was grieved to learn that he
was stricken with apoplexy while at
tending to his office duties last Fri
day and died in a few hours. Mat
ters had become peaceable and har
monious under his -government, and
his death is a great affliction to
Fr ice. The Chamber of Deputies
met Saturday and elected M. Loubet
as his successor. Loubet is a very
highly educated man, but as was the
case with Cassimer Perier, seems not
to be in harmony with the people,
and immediately after the annouce
ment of his election there were loud
demonstrations of disapproval, am
ounting almost to riots, and resulting
in the arrest of many who made de
monstrations at Versailles.
France is unfortunate, and not
until all of the older of the Bona
partist and Bourbon elements are
dead and the country becomes steep
ed for decades in the refining and
stable influences of liberal republi
can government, -will the populace
become satisfied and willing to sub
mit to the methods of government
that she has.
The session of 1899 has lasted
longer than many of us expected it
would, but the length of the session
is largely due to the fact that this is
the last one which is unlimited. Here
after no session can last longer than
forty days. The bill to submit the
matter of biennial sessions was smoth
ered in the House, so it will be
another year before any action will
be taken to bring about this much
desired piece of legislation. In my
opinion, there is absolutely no neces
sity for the convening of the General
Assembly every year, once in every
two years is a plenty.
The readers of THE TIES will re
member that I have always protested
against these long sessions and was
one of the few who tried to call up. a
resolution to adjourn on the 10th.
I am yet to learn wvhere we have done
any legislating that will be generally
felt by the people; of course, we en
acted a great many laws which are of
great importance to the interests to
be effected, but the best work done
was the slaughtering of bills which,if
passed, could only have had the ef
fet of adding more leaves to the
Statute books, and created confusion.
A bill was put through authoriz
ing the county commissioners to
bond the past indebtedness of the
county, which will prevent parties
holding claims of long standing, p~ut
ting into judgment. This bill author
izes the commissioners to issue four
year bonds at 5 per cent. interest.
Dr. Woods has not been able to
get back and he is greatly missed by
his colleagues who have formed a
liking for his earnestness.
Representatives Richardson and
Jones have stuck to their posts, al

Governor Ellerbe continues a very
ill man; on last Thursday he granted
a pardon to Dublin Williams, upon
the recommendation of the Judge,
Solicitor, foreman of the convicting
jury, the Senator and others.
I was greatly disappointed in nr
being able to take my usual SattLr
day night visit home, but committee
work, together with a night session,
prevented. I feel that a State Sena
tor,if he believes himself, ought to be
as good as a nigger, and a nigger is
permitted to go to his "wife's house'
every Saturday night, but then it was
the last week of the session and I
quely submitted to my disappoint

*contact with thinking men, and
especially with those who are earn
estly endeavoring to be of benefit to
the people. I have been treated with
Ithe most kindly consideration by my
-fellow Senators, and I believe that
my relations with them has been at
benefit to me and to my constituents.
When I return next year I will be in
a better position, and with the friends
I have made I feel sure that if there
is any measure which will benefit
Clarendon that I can introduce I will
not be lacking for aid.
Before the next session I will ask~
for a meeting at the court house to
with regard to needed legislation and
thereby equip myself, so that all of
my measures may be introduced
early. e find that i is the "early
bird that catches the worm."
My second at:tempt on the seed
cotton bill succeeded in passing the
Senate, but it was so late that it
could not be acted upon by the
liouse; however it is now on the
caledlr and will be taken up among
the first things next session.
The auditor's salary has been ~ re
duced $100; the sheriff, dieting fees,
have been reduced from 30 cents to
25 cents; the clerk of court will now
get a salary for work in criminal
cases instead of fees, which will be
a saving of about $150 a year. Last
year the clerk drew nearly $300 from
the county and the more cases tried
by the courts the more his fees
amount to. Now, ir uatters not how
many crininal cases there are, he can
only get $150. The reductions in the
sheriff's dieting fees will amount to a
considerable save also.
The commissioners who are to as
sist the supervisor were down in the
supply bill at $3. per day, but I had
it reduced to $2. and not to exceed
twenty-five days. I believe there
will be more money saved to the tax
payers this year by careful manage
ment than ever before, and it will be
my pleasure as well as duty to aid
the commissioners to bring about
this result. "A."

Washington, February 17, 1899.
Quite ss sneaky as its attacks upon
Gen. Miles is the attempt of the ad
ministration to make it appear that
democratic Senators are trying to
force an extra session of Congress by
opposing legislation for a large
standing army. It is the duty of
democratic Senators to act in accord
with the wishes of their constituents
and in resisting by every constitu
tional and parliamentary method
koown to them such vicious legisla
tion they will be doing exactly that.
They have nothing to do with calling
an extra session of Congress; that is
strictly a Presidential prerogative.
A feature of the red hot debate in
the House on the offering of the
Hepburn Nicaragua Canal bill as an
amendment to the Sundry Civil bill
was a short but strong speech in fa
vor of the bill by Representative
Bailey, of Texas, who said he sup
ported the amendment because it
provided for direct ownership of t> e
Canal by the government, instead of
a partnership with a private corpora
tion. Some bitter personalities were
thrown around during the debate.
Czar Reed and his henchmen in the
House oppuaed the amendment, and
most ')f the demorrrats favored it. It
was ruled out on a point of order,
and the House~ under the lash of
Czar Reed sustained the ruling by a
vote of 127 to 109.
The disposition of the McEnery
joint resolution, which was this week
adopted by the Senate, by a vote of
26 to 22, by the house committee on
foreign affairs, will speedily show
whether the resolution was adopted
as a part of the game by which a
sufficient number of votes were ob
tained to ratify the treaty, or not.
The vote in the Senate indicates that
it was. The Bacon substitute, which
was defeated by the vote of the Vice
President, the Senate beirng a tie,
really has a meaning; it pledged the
United States to treat the Philippines
just as it is already pledged to treat
Cuba. The Philippines could be
held forever and a day, as the saying
is, under the McEnery resolution, if
it were a law.
Representative Lewis, of Washing
ton, in the course of a short running
debate on the item in the sundry
civil bill which appropriates $22,000,
000, to pay Spain for the Philip
pies, pointed out the important and
interesting historical fact that Spain
is the only country on earth that has
ever repudiated its treaty obligations.
In 1762, after the English had taken
the Pilippines, Spain made a treaty
in which it agreed. to pay England an
amount equivalent to $10,000,000 to
regain possession of the islands. Eng
land gave up the islands under that
treaty; but Spain has never paid a
cent of the money promised.
Representative Grosvenor, of Ohio,
chairman of the republican caucus,
this week named the committee of
members of the next house, who are,
in obedience to caucus direction, to
prepare a financial bill to be pre
sented to a caucus of the republicans
of the house, in the next Congress.
The make up of the committee leaves
no doubt that the bill it will prepare
will be whatever sort of bill Mr. Mc
Kinley may wish to have jammed
through. One of the shrewdest men
in political life said of the probable
work of this committee: "My pre
diction is that the financial bill that
is likely to become a law at the first
session of the next Congress, wvhether
that be an extra session closely fol
lowing the close of the present ses
sion or the regular session next win
ter, will not meet the wishes of Sec
retatry Gage and other extreme single
old standard advocates. Next year
will be Presidential year and Mr. Mc
Kiney is a very wily politician. In
my opinion, he will try to make that
tinancial bill a dodger, and he will
have plenty of assistance from the
members of the house who have a
strong silver element in their dis
The average democrat in Congress
wold much prefer that Secretary
Gage's ideas b , . .
cial bill, because that would leave no
room for dodging the issue in the
next campaign. But it is always the
policy of the politicians to prevent a
square stand-up fight on a plain issue,
if there is any possible way in which
it. can be prevented.
Ex-SecretarV John Sherman didn't
mice words when he spoke about
the attetupt (f the war commission's
report to whitewash Alger and his
gatng and to blacken Gen. Miles. Mr.
Sherman said: "If McKinley were up
for election today be would get in
Ohio but ani inconsiderable number
of votes. From all that. I can learn
there is little enthusiasm for him
there, and but very few newspapers
are supporting him. There is no
doubt that such a condition has been
brought about by just such attacks
as Ire being made upon Gev. Miles.
What has Gen. Miles done to the
Presideut and Secretary of War that
he should be treated so? He has no"

ousy is at the bottom of it all" Mr.
Sherman may be very sore-headed

does not prevent his being able to

After several visits in Scotland dur
ing the summer of 1838, Carlyle went
home again to Scotsbrig, writes Charles
T. Copeland in The Atlantic. On his
return thence he spent a few days in
Manchester with Mrs. Hanning. "He
had been put to sleep in an old bed,
which he remembered in his father's
house." "I was juEt closing my senses
in sweet oblivion," wrote he, "when
the watchman, with a voice like the
deepest groan of the highland bagpipe
or what an ostrich corneraik might ut
ter, groaned out 'Groo-o-o-o!' close under
me and set me all in a gallop again.
'Groo-o-o-o!' for there was no articulate
announcement at all in it, that I could
gather. 'Groo-o-o-o!' repeated again and
again at various distances, dying out
and then growing loud again for an
hour or more.
"I grew impatient, bolted out of bed,
flung up the window. 'Groo-o-o-o!'
There he was, advancing, lantern in
hand, a few yards off me. 'Can't you give
up that noise?' I bastily addressed him.
'You are keeping a person awake. What
good is it to go howling and groaning
all night and deprive people of their
sleep? He ceased from that time-at
least I heard no more of him. No
watchman, I think, has been more as
tonished for sone time back."

"A negro is a slave we read of them in
'Uncle Tom's Cabin.' " "A gentleman
who lives in a foreign country."
The country children are even more
