A STIL.ETTO IN ITS STCCKI G.
Notwithlstanding the "State's'
vehement denial, w e still believe
that the "voluntary and unsolic
ited interviewed" referred to it
its issue of 14th inst., was
manufactured for the pur
pose of discrediting Senator Mc
Laurin with the people of thi:
State, and until the "State" dis
closes the name of the author o:
that interview, we will continuE
to believe it emanated from somE
one connected with the State,
regardless of epithets which the
"States' editor may choose tc
hurl. The idea of a newspape
striking a public servant such a
blow as was done in that avolun
tary and unsolicited interview'
without disclosing the name o1
the author is so unfair, that it.
foulness must be apparent tc
every lover of justice. Thc
State knows full well that there
is a deep-seated prejudice against
the name "Republican" in this
State, and when it, even in the
guise of a "voluntary and unso
licited interview" seeks tc
place Senator McLaurin as a
probable leader of the Republi
can party, it must know that the
effect intended, is to prejudice
the people against the man.
The "State" "wonders how THE
TDIES would manage to be re
conciled with itself should its
darling Mac's be rival candidates
in 1902." In case these two gen
tiemen referred too, should set
fit to opose~ each othe:-. condi
tions may be such that we will
be forced to make a strong fight
against one or the other, and
perhaps both, but were the elec
tion to come up today, or in two
years the conditions remain as
they now exist, we have no hes
itancy in saying that our choice
between these two personal
friends, would be in favor of
McLaurin. We honestly believe
that John L. McLaurin is better
qualified to~ be of service to his
State than any man who could
be sent' there, and to displace
him because he had the manhood
to do what he thought was best,
would only be taking a step
The "State" has not been at
all friendly towards Senator Mc
Laurin, and for some time it has
displayed its unfriendliness to
wards him, we know not why.
Surely, it cannot be because
Senator McLaurin was convinc
ed that under the conditions then
existing, it was for the country's
best interest to vote for the con
firmation of the Paris treaty?
No it cannot be this, because,
the "State" was a strong adv-o
cate for the re-nomination o:
William Jennings, Bryan, and h(
and Senator McLaurin held the
same views on this subject. The
"State's" antipathy to the Sena
tor, cannot be on account of his
not voting with a majority of the
Democratic Senators, because,
this would be inconsistant with
that paper's record. We well
remember how the "State" en
deavored to tear the Democratic
party asunder by supporting
anything a'nd everything in op
position to the nominees of that
party; we have not forgotten
how it villified and abused any.
thing and everything the Demo
crats did, and the devihment it
did when Pope and his gang
were attempting to uproot our
registration laws, yes, we well
remember the sudden popularity
of the State among the negro's
when Pope and George Murray
were pumping hot wind all ov-er
the country soliciting contribu
tions to pay the expenses for
breaking up our franchise laws.
that the Republican party might
again come into powe-: in this
State. We remember these
things, and for- that reason we
are satistied that The State's pre
judice dos not camel from Sena
tor McLau rin's ditYering on one or
two issues with the majority oi
his Democratic colleagues.
There must be something which

Minister Wu Ting Fang has
been severely criticised on ac

before the Ethical Culture So

was in Philadelphia later, and
referring to the criticisms of his
lecture. he said that the reports
that were published did not give
full facts and. were therefore
misleadinge. He had no inten
tion of attacking the Christian
religion. His theme was Confu*
canism, and to make the cardi
nal points as clear as possible he
chose the best form of religion,
Christianity. for a comparison.
"it was not my intention," he
said. "to condemn the teachings
of Christ. Taking His philoso
phy as a standard should be con
sidered as a compliment. I de
sired to explain how Confucian

said they were very noble and
very difficult for men to attain
to, some of them. When I blamed
Christia'r:, I certainly did not
condemn their religion. I have
