WHY NOT ABUSE TILLMAN?
In his speech on the Porto
Rican appropriation, Senator
Tillman, in refering to Pie sident
McKinley, said: "I'm willing to
trust William McKinley," con
tinuing he said, "He is a patri
otic and noble man." We call at
tention to these expressions sim
ply to ask if because Senator
Tillman found reason to thus ex
press himself, will some of our
State newspapers charge him
with having "Republican ten
dencies?" It seems that a cer
tain newspaper coterie has de
termined to destroy the influence
John L. McLaurin has with his
people, and they take every op
portunity to misrepresent him.
McLaurin is young and progres
sive. He believes in grasping
situations as they exist, and pre
sent thlmselves. He is not one
to hug a delusion because t
comes to him in the drapery of
ancestral robes, nor does he wor
ship at the shrine of antiquity.
McLaurin was opposed to this
country going to war, but war
came, and with it conditions
arose, which called for a map
ping out of policies to suit the
emergency. Dewey entered the
harbor of Manila and from the
mouths of his guns he delivered
an ultimatum which gave notice
to the world that as a result of
the war between the United
States and Spain, the Philip
pine Islands would become a
part of our possessions- ,A com
mission was appointed to treat
with Spain, which met in Paris,
and there between our represen
tatives and those of Spain, a sol
emn compact was signed, and
which has been recorded on the
pages of history as the "Paris
Treaty." There was opposition
to the ratitication of this docu
ment, and while the question was
pending, the leader of the De
mocratic party, William Jen
nings Bryan, went to Washing
ton and counselled his party to
vote for the ratification of the
treaty- Senator McLaurin was
among the number who first re
garded the policy of the adminis
tration as tending towards im
perialism and made a speech on
that line. Then all at once a
*nother condition arose. The f|ir
ing on the United States flag by
the forces of Aguinaldo: this
brought the question out of party
politics, and it commended itself
to the country's loyalty. Mc
Laurin is a Democrat and has al
ways stood loyally by the dec
larations of his party. The pirty
had not spoken, nor had it had
a chance to speak, and when the
country's flag was fired upon, he
threw aside all other considera
tions and heeded the advice of
W. J. Bryan by voting to ratify
the treaty. Because he did this,
a certain newspaper element has
been with malice aforethought,
withholding from the people
what McLaurin is doing in the
Senate, and reproducing one
from another,all of the disparag
=ing things said about him. Had
McLaurin used the language at-,
tributed to Tillman, "I am wil
ling to trust William McKinley,"
or "He is a patriot and noble
man," every one of these hide
bound anti-treaty newer. e~rs'
would have been full of special
attention to "Republican ten
dencies." Tillman and McLaurin
differ on the Philippine question.
Tillman is opposed to it solely on
political grounds, McLaurin fa
vors it, because he believes it'to
be an opening up of new markets
for Southern products. He be
lieves that an entry into a warm
climate, means the increasing of
the demands for what is raised
and manufactui-ed in the South,
and that the Southern farmier,
merchant and laborer will be
benefited. McLaurin views the
matter from a practical business
standpoint, and notwithstanding
the fact the Democratie party
has not declar-ed on this question,
some Democrats would have it
appeari that whoever has the
temerity to agree with the pres
ent administration, is a Pepubli
can and a traitor to his party. If,
the Democratic convention the
disciples of Thomas Jefferson will
remind them of the Louisiana
purchase. The acquisition of
Florida in 1819 by Monroe. The
annexation of Texas, of Califonia,
and of other States by Polk, and
that the precedent for expansion
has been set by Democratic ad
ministrations. At present we zre
satisfied the opposition to Me
Laurin has succeeded in becloud
ing the issue and the man, but
true greatness will not be hidden
long, and McLaurin will come
forth, and his record will rift
the cloud-it will come forth in
purity and brilliancy, and instead
of having the finger of suspicion
pointed at him, the populace will
turn upon his accusers and defa mn
ers with sneers of derision and

LET THEM ALONE.
There is a rumor floating about
the State that Senator Tillman
is the main influence which in
spires Hon. Frank B. Gary's
candidacy for gubernatorial hon
ors. Whether there is any
foundation for the rumor we (do
not know, and hope it is not true.
We do know that Senator Till
man is very friendly to the Gary
family and he has manifested
that friendship in many ways.
He made the mistake of his poli
tical life when he undertook to
save John Gary Evans from de
feat. That was not his judgment,
but he permitted his name to be
affixed to the circular, entirely
from a spirit of friendliness to
the Gary family. We doubt ex
ceedingly if there is a member
of that family who would have
been heard from at all, as far as
high political honors are con
cerned, had it not been for Till
ian. He is their political father.
and through him nearly th e en
tire connection, near and remote,
have been, and are now, filling
prominent positions, both of
honor and emoluments. We think
it high time and very proper, af
ter such a long and careful train
ing that Senator Tilhnan turn
his proteges loose, and let them
take their chances without his
aid. If Colonel Gary, a most ex
cellent gentlemen, wants to be
governor he should come forth
and present his claims to the
people. He should not wait to
be carried about in the arms of
his political father, for that fath
er is under obligations to many
men throughout the State, some
of whom may be aspirants for
gubernatorial honors. Senator
Tillman will be a candidate him
self and we hope he will not have
opposition, but opposition or no
opposition, he will be re-elected
to succeod himself to the United
States Senate, and this being so,
we think he ought not take a
hand in the gubernatorial race,
and that he should permit all of
the aspirants to paddle their
We have been asked why it is,
that having been mentioned as a
probable candidate for Congress,
we mention in our columns the
work which is being done by
Hon. James Norton. It is this,
we are running a newspaper and
propose as long as our connec
tion is with THE TIMEs, to give
redit where credit is due, and
when we see one of our repre
sentatives doing good work for
his constituents we feel it to be
but honest to let our readers
know it. To do otherwise would
be robbing our representative
f what is justly his, and in our
opinion, if withholding is rob
bing, we in fairness and honesty,
can not withhold. Congress
man Norton has accomplished
more work which will be of prac.
ical benefit to his constituents
in this session, than has been ac
omplished in several sessions.
This is not all, he has succeeded
in reaching the ear of the con
trolling influences in Washing
ton, and it would not surprise
us in the least, if in a year or so,
a United States cour-t house is
built at Florence, within easy
reach of the entir-e 6th District.
Norton is not a wind machine to
make a noise without results,
but he is a man of indomitable
energy, and tireless in any wor-k
he sets out to do, and we think
it but fair to say so.

The English-Boer War.
Editor The Manninc Times:
The war between the English and
the Boers goes merrily on. and to the
great disappointment and chagrin ( J
the English and their svmpa th1ers in
different parts of the world, the end of
the struggle is nor in sight. To the
surprise of the English the lIoers have
not. as yet, thrown up the sponge in
acknowledgeIment of defeat. neither
have ther laid down their arms and
submitted to the placing on their necks
by siuuh-nosed and triky Englishmen
tie galling yoke of -iglish biondagre.
To overthrow a lipublican govern
ment. and with its overthrow enslave
a gallant people. the Engl ish are now
waging ierce.ly an unjust and an unholy
war. The object of the war on the part
of the English beyond any doubt. is for
gain. and to gratify an inborn desire
for greedy avariciousness. a desire that
is as natural for an Englishman to
possess as it is for water to run down
hill. Regardless of the great oids
against them. and the unlimited re
sources of a proud and vindictive foe.
a foe on whose dominion true sun never
sets. these gallant Boers have in every
instance of bloody conflict met with un
flinching valor like men the ter
rible shock of battle. and on many flelds
of courage these weak but brave people
have met, and with undying praise for
themselves as a peolle. repelled the
unholy onslaughts of the unjust. greedy
and avaricious Englishmen.
Though from the latest accounts now
current. it now appears that these gal
lant people will have in the past made
all their noble sacrifices in vain. and
at last these game people will have to
vield to overwhelning numbers and
brute force on the part of their over
mnerous English foe.
The English army now number on
Boer territory according to English ac
counts. two hundred and thirteen thous
and men. with three thousand more
heading for the Transvaal. making in
all an enormous army of two hundred
and sixteen thousand men. To con
front this mighty host of greed. the
Boers has but forty-five thousand men.
Backed by such decided advantage.
every indication now shamefully point
to the triumph of the English arms.
The grand opportunity has now arrived
for some strong friendly pover to in
tervene in behalt of these gallant and
struggling patriots and help them save
their Republican government and their
by perpetuate their national existence.
Some friendly power should now step
in and tell these avaricious Englishmen
to take their thieving ingers from the
throats of those Boer patriots. and de
mand at once the immediat e withdrawal
of their hosts of tyranny from the soil
[of a people, who by their daring deeds
of valor in this confliet, and by the
noble sacrifice; they have made in life
and treasure in defence of their nat ional
existance. deserve eternally to he a free
peo pl e. We hbelieve that the sy mpat hy
of nine-tenths of the pe-ople of South
Carolina and the p~eop~le generally of
the United States are heart and soul
with these struggling and patriotic p~eo
ple, and we do in all sincerity of heart
bid them God speed in their most holy
resistance to wrong. and may He who
rules the universe and holds the destiny
of all people as it were, in the hollow
of Hand, give them a final and signal
victory, and may their numerous ene
mies now soon be ignominiously driven
from their shores, and may these gal
lant people still retain their position
among the Republican governments of
the world and remain forever free from
the paws of the greedy and avaricious

SGROFULII RND ITS RWFUL HORRORS
A M1OST WONDERFUL CURE.
A Grand Old Lady Gives Her Experience.
Mrs. Thankful Orilla Hurd lives in the beautiful village of Brighton,
Livingston Co., Mich. This venerable and highly respected lady was born in
the year 1812, the year of the great war, in Iebron. Washington Co., New
York. She came to 3Michigan in 1S40, the year of "Tippecanoe and Tyler
too." All her faculties are excellently preserved, and possessing a very re
tentive memory. her mind is full of interesting reminiscences of her early
life, of the early days of the State of Michigan and the interesting and re
markable people she has met, and the stirring events of which she was a wit
ness. But nothing in her varied and manifold recollections are 'more mar
velous and worthy of attention than are her experiences in the use of
JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA. Mrs. Hurd inherited a tendency and pre
disposition to scrofula, that terribly destructive blood taint which has cursed
and is cursing the lives or thousands and marking thousands more as vic
tims of the death angel. Transmitted from generation t) generatIon. It is
found in neary every family in one form or another. It may make its ap
pearance in dreadful running sores, in unsightly swellings in the neck or
goitre, or in eruptions of varied forms. Attacking the mucous membrane, it
may be known as catarrh in the head, or developing in the lungs it may be,
and often is, the prime cause or consumption.
Speaking of her case, Mrs. Iurd says: "I was troubled for many years
with a bad skin disease. 'My arms and limbs would break out In a mass of
sores. discharging yellow matter. M1y neck began to swell and became very
unsightly in appearance. My body was covered with scrofulous eruptions..
My eyes were alro greatly Inflamed and weakened, and they pained me very
much. My blood wrt% ;a a very bad condition and my head ached severely
at frequent intervals, nnd I had no appetite. I had sores also In my ears. I
was in a miserable condition, I had tried every remedy that had been recom
mended, and doctor after doctor had failed. One of the best physicians "n
the state told me I must die of scrofulous consumption, as internal abeesses
were beginning to form. I at length was told of Dr. Johnston, of Detroit, and
his famous Sarsaparilla. I tried a bottle, more as an experiment than any
thing else. as I had no faith in it, and greatly to my agreeable surprise, I
began to grow better. You can be sure I kept on taking it. I took a great
many bottles. But I steadily improved until I became entirely well. All the
sores healed up. all the bad symptcms disappeared. I gained perfect health.
and I have never been troubled with scrofula since. Of course an old lady
of 83 years is not a young woman, but I have had remarkably good health
since then, and I firmly believe that JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA Is the
greatest blood purifier and the best medicine in the wide world, both for
scrofula and as a spring medicine." This remarkably interesting old lady did
not lok to bhe more than sixty, and she repeated several times, "I believe my
life was saved by JOENSTON'S SARSAPARILLA."
