The Gei-eral Assembly of 1899 lias
finished its work and although the
body was made up largelv of new
material, the work done was quite
satisfactory. There was a conspicu
ous absence of factional feeling
thoughout, and no radical legislation
succeeded worLing its way through.
Every branch of the General Assem
bly was exceedingly careful with its
work as will be seen; out of nearly
500 bills introduced, only 156 became
laws, 53 o! them origitated in the
Senate and 103 in the house, about
70 were of purely local import, 29
were of imporance to railroads and
other corporations, and 57 might be
termed "general acts" because they
either amended the statute law or ad
ded new laws. The cbst of this ses
sion is estimated at about $35,000
The institutions of higher learning
received about their usual appropri
ations and the State levy remains the
same as heretfore. The matter that
received more discussion than any
other was the attempts made to se
cure some modification to the dispen
sary law. The Prohibitionists did
not follow the lead of Mr. Feather
stone who undertook to lead them
away from their declared principles,
nor was their any alliance formed
between the Prohibitionists and anti
Dispensaryites. The dispensary forces
were strong enough to prevent any
legislationi which would effect the
law and the only change they did
permit was the doing away with the
"Palmetto tree" on the labels auf
bottles. In both the Senate and the
House there was a notable iacIt of
leaders, every member was a leader
unto himself, both bodies were inde
pendent, and in neither was there
any attempt to wield a party or fac
tional lash. There was no such thing
as an administration measure, unless
the Archer bill might so be termed,
because its provisions were the same
as was suggested by Governor Eller
be in his message, that is, to submit
the two questions Prohibition and
Dispensary to the people. This bill
after much discussion was adopted
by the Senate and sent to the house
where it was smothered to death
along with all other bills that tended
to touch the dispensary. The Barn
well amendment, requiring liquor
constables to give bond was another
measure that created much debate
and it passed the Senate to meet the
fate of other dead bills in the House.
In our local matters the Representa
tives have every reason to be satis
fied with their work. Major Richard
son was at his post all the way
through and made a reputation as a
first class'commitee worker, and by
the way the most important legisla
tion is done in the committee room.
Mr. Jones, in the early part of the
session was prevented from doing
much work on account -of sickness,
but when he got well enough to go
out he went back to his post and his
votes on the various measures, show
the carefulness observed by him.
Doctor Woods, having had legisla
tive experience, started off, by getting
down to work. He introduced sever
al measures one of which passed the
house, another failed to go through,
then the heavy hand of sickness was
laid upon him and he had to go home
and was never well enough to return
during the retnainder of the session.
In the Senate the writer succeeded
in getting through a measure by
which it will not be necessary to hold
a two weeks court in this county in
the fall, and which should be a save
to the people. He also introduced a
bill to repeal the seed cctton license
in this county; it was defeated, and he
re-introduced it and succeeded in
possing it, and having it sent over to
the house, but as it reached that body
late, it was continued along with all
of the other late third reading bills.
The Senator was on five different
committees and they kept himn well
engaged throughout the session. He
took part in a number of debates,
principally the liquor discussion, and
a measure to regulate the charges for
publishing legal notices. This bill
was introduced by a lawyer from
Orangeburg and after its passage in
the house, opposition to it sprung in
the Senate from a Senator laboring
under a mistaken inmpression, in this
tght, as it fell to his lot to explain
the bill. On the liquor debate, our
readers have already been fully in
formed as to the position taken in
The Clarendon delegation held con
sultations wheuever there was to be
any steps taken by any of its memn
bers and as a result they got along
very pleasantly; no dissension or dis
agreements. The appropriation for
the county was the work of the full
delegation after careful consideration
and all of the appointments are from
a unanimous recommendation.
AFFAIRS IN THE PHILIPPINES.
During the week some important
events happened: The Philippine in
surgents tried to burn the city of Ma
nila, and succeeded in destroying
much property before they were re
pulsed by the American troops un
der Gen. Otis, who finally drove them
back and restored order in the city;
Aguinaldo issued a manifesto in
which Le claimed that the corrupt
rule of Spaiii was preferable to that
of the United States; the natives of
the Island of Negros (one of the Phil
ippine group) declared their allegi
ance to the United States and placed
themselves unreservedly under the
care and protection of the American
commanders; Admiral Dewey cabled
to the navy department that the bat
teship Oregon should be sent to Ma
nila immediately for political rea
sons (from which fact there is much
apprehension in administration cir
cles of thteatened foreign complica
tions); the House passed a bill ap
propriating $20,000,000 with which
to pay the bonus to Spain under the
terms of the treaty of peace; it also
passed the naval appropriation bill
with a rider reviving the grade of
admiral for the purpose of having
Rear Admiral George Dewey ad
vanced to that grade (the Senate hav
ing previously passed a separate bill
providing for the same thing); the
Senate passed the river and harbor
bill with the Morgan Nicaragua bill
added as au amendment; Representa
tive Johnson (Rep.) of Indiana made
another sensational attack upon Pres
ident McKinley's policy in general,
paying especial attention to the Pres
ident's recent Boston speech; the
House cbommittee on the judiciary
reported that the representatives (in
cluding Gen. Joseph Wheeler of Ala
bama) who had accepted commissions
in the volunteer army, thereby for
feited their rights to sit as members
of the House of Representatives;
Representative De Armond (Demn.) of
Missouri submitted a minority report
in the House, holding that the same
principle applied to the Senators who
served as members of the Paris treaty
commission; the administration con
sented to a compromise upon the
army reorganization bill, and a bill
(drawn to meet the objections of the
opposition to the Hell bill) was in
troduced in the Senate and read in
the House. This compromise bill
provides for the increase of the army
to the limit of 100,,000 men for a pe
riod of two years-65,000 of such
toops to belong to the regular army
and 35,000 to be composed of a vol
unteer force. Rear Admiral Winfield
Scott Sculey sent to the Senate (in
obedience to a request from the naval
affairs committee thereof ) a masterly
and most conclusive defense against
certain ugly charges preferred by the
Secretary of the Navy as reasons why
his nomination to the grade of rear
admiral should not be confirmed by
the Senate-the Secretary having
charged the rear admiral with being
guilty of reprehensible conduct dur
ing the naval campaign in Cuban
waters; but Schley showed conclu
sively that he was, at the time of this
charge, simply obeying the orders
given him by Rear Admiral Sampson,
his superior officer-producing the
original order under which he was
operating at the time, that order hav
ing been purposely suppressed from
the navy department files (if Sampson
ever turned it in). Representative
Lentz, (Dem.) of Ohio introduced a
bill reviving the grades of Admiral
and Vice-Admiral for Dewey and
Schley, respectively, with the proviso
that these grades should lapse with
the retirement or death of these offi
cers unless Schley should outlive
Dewey-in which event Schley should
succeed to the Admiralty and that
office die with him. It was agreed
that both Sampson and Schley shall
The shooting in Columbia la:-t Sat
urday might no.t have happened if the
liquor constables were under bond
the same as other officials. The con
stable, instead of slapping Mr. Stuart
when he cursed him, should have
curbed his indignation and avoided
the terrible result of a loss of temper.
When Stuart cursed Crawford, had
that officer paid no attention to the
epithets, the man might have gotten
over his excitement in a little while
and consented to the officers perform
ing their duties, but when the con
stable lost his temper and slapped
Stuart's face there was no chance for
reason any more. We believe the
General Assembly made a grave mis
take when it refused to enact a law
placing the liquor constables under
bond. Were these officers bonded
they would be respected as other of
fieers and treated as such, whereas
without bond they are looked upon
as spies and so treated by those op
The Columbia State says the "dis
pensary must go," we differ with our
contemporary; there is no necessity
for the dispensary to go, as long as it
is doing good work. The deplorable
affair at Columbia must not be used
as an argument that the dispensary
system is at fault. The most ardent
supporter of the system cannot ap
prove of an official so far forgetting
himself as to lose his temper while
attempting to discharge his duty,
but the thing to do is to remedy the
defects, one of which is to put on the
force, men of better discretion. There
are Sheriff's who have "lost their
heads" under great provocation and
did things that were not proper for
them to do, yes they have shot down
men, when if they had acted discret
ly their purpose could have been ac
complished without the shedding of
blood. Would the State say, if a
sheriff acted outrageously, that the
sheriff system must gO? We think
not. We do not know constable
Crawford, but from what we have
read in the newspaper reports, we do
not hesitate to say that Crawford had
no right to lay his hand in violence
upon Stuart. It was his duty itas an
officer armed with a warraut, to rea
son with the man, and failing in this,
the most he should have doue, was to
use only such force as was necessary
to perwit him to make the search as
directed under the warrant. But
when he laid violent hands upon Stu
art for some word insult, he then and
there showed his unfitness for the pos
ition lie held, and under the circum
stances even if no one had been killed
we belive the goveruor would have
removed him. As it is, the killing of
Mrs. Stuart, which we believe was
accidental will go hard with the con
stable in any county where he might
This tragedy will strengthen the
belief that it is unsafe and highly im
proper to entrust men with the pow
er to arrest and seize property, with
out restraint. There must be a re
sponsibility placed upon them, and if
it is not done, others will also cry out
the "dispensary must go."
We have before us a leaflet sent to
us by Hon. Tomato-Juice Strait, re
cently defeated for re election to Con
gress from the Fifth District. The
leaflet sent out is intended to charge
Senator John L. McLaurin with using
parts of a sermon delivered in New
York by Rev. D. Van Dyke without
giving proper credit. The sermon of
the minister ani the -peech of the
Senator being on the same line of ar
gument, naturally contain a few sim
ilar expressions, but when the ser
mon and the speech are read there is
no similarity whatever. In order for
ex-Congressman Strait to make a
showing for his charge he has culled
from Senator McLaurin's speech six
paragraphs, some containing two
lines, others four, and by this he pro
poses to convict Senator McLaurin of
plagiarism. We have carefully read
the testimony offered by Mr. Strait
and have no hesitancy in saying that
his attempt to injure McLaurin has
failed, even grant that when McLau
rin prepared his speech he had in
mind the sermon of Rev. Van Dyke.
The language used by the minister
and that used by the Senator is not
the same, but points to the same
meaning of course, as they were both
discussing the same subject and no
doubt from the same sources of in
Dr. Strait has not been friendly to
the junior Senator for some time, as
will be remembered by his conduct
in the campaign in which McLaurnn
defeated Irby and Evans. At one of
the meetings Strait endeavored to
harass McLaurin and received such a
squelching rebuke until he was satis
fied to leave McLaurin alone for the
time being, and since that event,
Strait's constituents have selected
some one else to represent them in
We have no doubt but that McLau
rin is held responsible for Strait,'s de
feat, and now that he has been
downed, it would be a source of much
consola tion should Strait he able to
retaliate on McLaurin, failing, lie can
come out of politics and devote the
remainder of his days developing his
tomato-fig-syrup enterprise with some
profit to himself at least.

Senator Tillnim's Phun11 Talk it the
Montclair, N. J., Feb. 24.-United
States Senator Benjamin R. Tillman,
of South Carolina, and the Rev. Dr.
A. H. Bradford, of the first Congre
gational Church, of this place, talked
before the Outlook Club here this
evening on "The Race Question in
the South." Senator Tiliman, after
drawing a picture of the ruin and
desolation caused in his land by the
civil conflict, said:
"The white man is superior to the
colored man, and, God helping us, we
will maintain that superiority. Your
great soldier, Grant, sent to my coun
try in 1876 a regiment of ten compa
nies to maintain carpet-bag govern
merit. Those troops had orders to
compel a free vote and a fair count.
They did their duty as they saw it.
They maintained law and order, al
though there were 5,200 blacks to
3,500 whites. What do you reckon
our majority was? Three thousand
nine hundred. Can Tammany beat
that? Can Philadelphia beat it? We
beat these people by outvoting and
outcounting them, and we admit it.
We can't repeal the fourteenth and
fifteenth amendments except by
force and fraud. I told the Senators
this in Washingtou, and then I said:
'What are you going to do about it?
In the North it is a question of white
rascals against white rascals. In the
South it is a contest between Anglo
Saxon superiority and civilization
and degraded, corrupt and corrupti
"We called a Constitutional Con
vention and created a Constitution
under which every man must be able
to read or write or pay taxes on $300.
Under that Constitution 90 per cent
of the whites and 10 per cent of the
blacks vote. The colored people are
a happy-go-lucky, immoral, untruth
ful, unreliable race. There are ex
ceptions and bright ones, but I speak
of the great mass. They were unfit
for the ballot and are now, because
they are lacking in that moral fibre
which gives them sound judgment,
and they can be led away by any
shrewd and sharp rascal. I simply
recognize my superiority to the black
man and am willing to consent to his
life, liberty and happiness so long as
he does not step on my feet. (Laugh
ter.) Take a pilgrimage to the South.
Settle in any part you may please,
and if you don't come North con
vinced that my view is the right one,
why, then, I'll stand treat. I have a
negro on my plantation 72 years old.
I would trust him with my wife and
child and he would die protecting
them, but he ain't fit to vote. You
can't alter what God has made, and
though this or that negro may be a
decent man or an honest man, yet
the tiger is loosened in a white man's
bosom without regard to consequen
ces when the two races come in con
Speaking of the negro from the in
dustrial standpoint, Senator Tillman
said: "He is by nature and by every
instinct of his soul a loafer. His one
purpose in life is to get something to
eat for today, with no thought for
the future. In consequence, the
Southern States lag behind the North
because of the lack of thrift in its la
boring class. But dont think that
the negro does all the work. The
South produced 11,000,000 bales of
cotton last year and one half of it
was raised by white men. If any
commonwealth will give us one good
industrious white man for three nig
gers, we'll swap as long as they'll
keep up the exchange. V, e've got
the white man's burden down there."
In closing the speaker said: "We
are educating them, but even if they
can learn we don't propose to have
them govern us. We'll use the shot
gun if necessary."
Dr. Bradford prefaced his address
by remarking that he only wished
that he could speak his views before
a South Carolina audience and meet
with the same reception as a North
ern audience had given to the previ
"You'll get the same courtesy,"
rejoined Senator Tillman, though
not a single man will agree with your
Dr. Bradford asserted that it was
childish to say that we cannot alter
what God has made. 'That is just
what we are doing every day," he
said. "Are we to leave children just
as God made them or are we to edu
cate them? What is the colored man
anyway? In more than half the cases
he has more Angle-Saxon blood in
his veins than Ethiopian blood, and
the boasted superior morality of the
white man caused that."
Dr. Bradford read letters from prof
essors in Harvard, Yale, and other
universities tending to show that the
negro students were as apt as the
whites. He also enumerated the ne
groes who have made themselves
know in art and literature, and paid
a tribute to the negro soldiers in the
Senator Tillman, in his rejoinder,
waxed earnest and emphatic. "The
negroes of note just named," he said.
"are simply the exceptions that prove
the rule. I say the entire negro race
is lower in the scale than the white
man. God made them so, and they
always will be so.
"You people love the negro ac
cording to the square of the distance
you are from him. The further away
he is the more you pity him. We of
the South are unalterably determin
ed that mongrelism shall not obtain
there, and quick death is meted out
to the black wretches who violate
our women. I said as Governor of
South Carolina, and I say now, that
I would lead any lynching party to
lynch any man who robbed a woman
of her virtue. I have been in four
negro riots and I'm proud of it.
"As for education benefiting the
negro from my experience as hover
nor I know that with nine out of
every ten negroes in the South the
fist thing he does with his education
is to forge names to get money with
which to live without work.
"When you speak of the heroism
of the black regiments in Cuba, I re
ply that if the 13th calvairy had not
been disciplined and led by white
men they would have run like tur
keys. White officers simply made
machines out of them. Why, I can
pick out 100 white men in my county
and go against any 5,000 negroes, and
lick them, too.
"It is only a few years compara
tively since the Anglo-Saxons were
slaves. Yes, but they threw off their
oppressors and rose among the peo
ple of the earth until they dominate.
Don't tell me that the negro will ever
do that. It is not in him."
(Froina or.r Regular Correspondent.)
Washington, Feb. 24, 1899.-The
democrats in Congress stand behind
the plain words of Senator Cockrell
against the bill for a large standing
army, wvbich Mr. McKinley is trying
to jam throug the Senate, and they
believe that the ranik and file of the
paty stand behind them. Mr. Cock
rell said: "We will give you every
man and every officer that is necessa
ry, but we are not willing at this
short session to fasten upon the coun
try a standin'g army of 100,000 men
and to increase the expenses of the
people by millions of dollars. We
are offerit'g everything that is fair
and just and right. We have no dis
position 01 intention to force an extra
session of Congress, and we say to
you that every bill that legitimately
passed at this ression. If an extra
session is called, it will be solely for
the purpose of fastening upon the
people a standing army of 100,000
men." That is a fair and straight
forward statement of the attitude of
the democratic Senators, who are be
ing accused of holding up the govern
ment. They are not holdiog up the
government, except in lhe sense of
helping it to he true to the people.
The war taxes are likely to have to be
paid until a democratic Cougress and
administration it elected, and there
will either have to be more taxes or
wore bonds, unless the extravagnut
policy of the administration can be
headed off or curtailed.
Col. W. J. Bryan, is in Washington,
and the reception given him by the
five hundred democrats, most men of
prominence, who attended the ban
quet of theVirginia Democratic As
sociation, at which he was the guest
of honor, iiakes it certain that, tlhose
who suppose that he is losing his bold
upon the party are uistaken. just as
the tinging speech, bris'li--g wi:bI;
Jeffersonian deiocracy, he im:aole at
the banquer iuLle iz certtia that he
has lost none of the oratt rim power
tat enabled him to hold the Chicago
c tivention spellboul amid to thrill
the hearts of six and a half million
voters. Whether Col. Bryan will ever
be Presideti, only tie future can
show; but that he is one of t he most
wonderftl men of oi:r time and that
he possesses a won.!,rful julbt upon
the hearts of his fellow-country men
is as plain as that night follows flay.
Senator Proctor has ber-n credited
with getting wore ti:an his share of
arimy appointwents an:] prmotions
under the present adumiinistration.
'I berefore it was a h!le surprising
when he made a speech jumpi:-g all
over the methld h whicti army pro

on "pull," instead of merit. Hie

getting commissions (in "pull," he

tary of War. Army officers will kt:ow
how to appreciate his statement that
little consideration is given to appli

cause the demand of some Senator or
Representative for the place must be
complied with. There is no doubt
about the evil of the present system,
not only because it puts unfit men
into responsible military positions,
but because it has a general demor
alizing effect upon Congress. It is
well known that Secretary Alger muz
zled a number of Senators and Rep
resentatives with army patronage.
Senator Mitchell, of Wis., made a
decided bit in his speech against the
Hull Army bill, by declaring that he
wished to confine any increase in the
army to "The United States proper
and not extend it to the United States
improper." He objected most de
cidedly to having U. S. soldiers en

The Alger Cuban junket, planned
to start as soon as Congress adjourns,

public money. It is estimated that
the cost of the trip will not be less
than $200,000, but the amount may
be lessened if the trip has to be short

resentatives to attend an extra ses

Adminal Schley haveing in his
statement of his record during the
war with Spain made it plain that the
jumping of Sampson over his head
was the result of dirty woi-k, in which
Sampson was the ring-leader, there is
a strong sentiment in Congress to
compel the administration to do jus
tice to Schley. One result of that
sentiment is the introduction of a
bill by Representative Lentz, of Ohio
providing that Dewey shall be made
a full Admiral and Schley a Vice Ad
miral. There should be no doubt of
the passage of the bill, but, unfort~u

That our advertisement has been placed in an obscure
corner of this paper, sandwiched, too, between that of
a patent medicine and job printing advertisement so
that ours and the job printing look like one, people
find us when in want of
H ardware, Agricultural Implements, Steam Fit
tings, Galvanized and Black Pipe, Roof Paint,
Tobacco Barn Flues, etc.
There is no advertisement so good as giving full value
for the money and our widening circle of friends and in
creasing trade show it. We were never in better condi
tion to meet the demand for Hardware than now and
we only ask that people get our prices before sending
elsewhere for goods.
