SENATE CHAMBER. t
Columbia. S. C., Feb. 10. 1902. (
The management of the South
Carolina Inter State and West
Indian Exposition had as their
guests on last Friday and Satur
day the members of the General
Assembly and the State ofticers.
The weather was superb, and
from start to finish the occasion
was hugely enjoyed. The party
left Columbia over the Southern
in a special train and returned in
a special on Saturday night over
the Atlantic Coast Line. The
arrangements were perfect, and
immediately on the arrival the
committee that met them led the
way to the administration build
ing were speeches of welcome
were delivered and responded to
after which the guests were in
vited to lunch. which was very
much enjoyed after being on the
road five hours, some without
breakfast, and those who arose
soon enough to get a bite at
home were equally as anxious
for something to eat. Then
came the sight seeing. Those
who have been holding back to
visit the exposition need do so
no longer, and visitors will find
a plenty to keep them steadily
engaged for several days. The
exhibits are wonderful, and
while it is a fact that the coun
ties of our own State are not all
represented, yet, Superintendent
Love has filled the building to
such an extent that one is amaz
ed to see the productions of this
State. It would take a whole
day to properly inspect the ex
hibits of the State building. Of
course one can start at one end
of the Court of Palaces and take
a cursory glance at things, and
get through to the other end in
a few hours, but to make an in
spection for the purpose of learn
ing it will take a whole week.
The United States government
exhibit is not only immense, but
it is beautiful. The various
States have their exhibits in
stalled and we want every body
to see this show. In this article
we can not undertake a descrip
tion of the exposition because
* we are Iacking in space, but we
want to say, because it is due the
management that this exposition
is not only the greatest one ever
held in the South, but aside
from the electric display it is
said to be in many respects great
er and more beautiful than Buf
falo. The crowds are now be
ginning to go in and every day
from now on the show will get
better, because the greater the
crowd the more attractions will
come. Every school in South
Carolina, whether it is a college
or a graded school, should take
at least two days on the exposi
tion grounds, because we know
of nothing that would be of more
practical value to school children
than the sights to be seen on
the exposition grounds. There
should be "Public School" days
and arrangements should be
made with the railroad compa
nies for cheap rates, and every
school whether in town or coun
try should arrange to be there.
The people of the State should
lend every effort to make this in
stitution a grand financial suc
cess. They can have county
days and every county in the
State can go to the exposition
in one big excursion, in this way
crowds will be on the grounds
every day and it will attract peo
ple from abroad.
There are many great exhibits
at the South Carolina Interstate
and West Indian Exposition,
there are, many marvelous
things. Thare are sights, sounds
and sensations to suit every
shade of human taste: profound
things for the profound, artis
tic, sentimental things for the
sentimental and morals a plenty
for the moralists. But if one is
looking simply for a good time,
for pure unadulterated fun, it
can be had in the beautiful Or
ient on the Midway and in big
At a step one finds one's self
in the midst of a maze of narrow
winding streets flanked with
quaint looking market stalls,
stately mosques, solemn temples
and graceful minarets, all cloth
ed in the gorgeous colors so
dear to the Eastern heart.
Oas every hand arises a babel
of strange sounds: the din of
drums, the falsetto squeak of
queer reed instruments, the
droning chant of Moslem pray
ers. the hoarse shouts of camel
drivers, the shrill cries of haw
kers vending their wares, the
grunting of camels, the braving
of diminutive donkeys, the
trumpeting of elephants: a mned
ley of wild, weird music and the
jargon on many tongues.
For here is a motley and poly
glot throng of many peoples and
of myliad languages. The tur
baned - ur-k strides abreast of
the skirted Greek: the white
shrouded Alger-ian rubs elbows
with the swarthy sheik fr-pm the
plains of Arabia: the natty be
the ebony skinned belle of Ethi
opia, while the stranger is jostled
by a motley crew of Americans,
Albanians, Kurds, Roumanians,
Servians, Bulgarians, Nubians
Cingalese, Arabians. Soudanese,
Abyssinians and a host of others.
all dressed in their national cos
tumes and pursuing their accus
tomed occupatioas with all the
noise and confusion of the land
of Allah. Mahomet and Buddah.
A hustiing, bustling, jostling
throng: arrayed in all the pictur
esque splendor of the far East.
Mluleteers and musicians.
camel drivers zand contortionists,
swordsmen and singing girls,
dancers and dervishes, tumblers
and tradesmen, jugglers and
jenizaries houris and hawkers,
acrobats and artisa'ns, a shout
ing. singing, rollicking and good
natured crowd as one may wish
to see. And how the sight-see
ing and fun lovings American
crowds enjoy it.
Yonder goes a blushing bride
and a dashing groom spending a
brief moment of theirlhoneymoon
on the swaying, lurching back
of a camel: there a staid and
steady old banker is being jolted
along the streets of Cairo on an
equally segacious doindey: here a
motherly looking matron is seen
clambering to the broad back of
a kneeling elephant: old and
young of both sexes and all sta
tionscatch the intlection of the
moment and join in the jollity of
the occasion. Busy politicians
forget the plots and plans of
party and faction to jounce up
and down on the vertebrae of an
Algerian ass: overworked busi
ness men forget their cares in a
camel ride and laugh themselves
red and reckless as they roll and
pitch on the hurricane deck of
this ambling -ship of the des
est:" thoughtless students for
sake their books and revel in the
delights of the Oriental theatre,
and grizzled veterans share with
roystering youths their adinira
tion of the grace and beauty of
the dancing girls or the grues
ome thrills evoked by the grot
esque torture dance.
Every member of the legisla
tive party comes away with a
feeling that he or she must go
back, and when the legislature
adjourns many of the solons will
carry their families down. The
living expenses are cheap, one
can get board and lodging as low
as a 1.00 per day and possibly
cheaper by the week. In urg
ing the people to go to tothe ex
position we wish to assure them
that we do so sincerely, and be
cause we feel that they will be
greatly benefitted thereby.
Since my last letter it is with
sncere pleasure that I can an
nounce that Governor McSween
ey has pardoned Frank M. Play
er, the Kingstree dispenser who
was found short and convicted.
Senator Williams and myself
carried the pardon over to the
penitentiary and when we broke
the news to Player, he stood al
most petrified and for several
minutes in silent prayer of
thanks to God for his deliverance
from bondage. I have witnessed
many pathetic scenes, but this
one was enough to melt a heart
of stone. I knew Player and
within his breast there beats no
dishonest heart, but his down
fall came through his inability
to say no, to a clss of blood-suck
ers who, to gratify their own
desires would send a fellow crea
ture to hell, and then laugh in
their sleeves at his tortures. So
it is with Frank Player. He
was always an honest open neart
ed man, his home was always
open to his friends and his pock
et was never closed to their
wants: when he took the posi
tion of dispenser, pretended
friends soon began patting him
on the back and to learn his
weaknesses; they found them
after a while and their wor-k of
destruction set in, and continued
until they carried him on to the
~brink of the precipice and when
they got all they could out of
hinm they hurled him down into
the abyss of disgrace, and gloat
ingly turned to seek another
victim. Frank Player is now a
free man and although a man on
the shady side of life we believe
if his health and life is spared
he will make every effort to live
ahoetan upright life, and it
isth dtyof every manly man
to take the poor fellow by the
hand and whisper words of en
couragement into his ear: the
man who would throw his mis
fortunes up to him is a miserable
The work of the legislature is
dragging its way along. The big
gest question was the fight on
what is known as the "child
labor" bill. The "Kings daugh
'ters" a benevolent organization
was the prime mover in pressing
the bill, and they had a number
of able men to advocate, sonme of
the strongest arguments were
made on this issue, and the ques
tion has a gr-eat deal of food for
thought in it. The 1)ill passed
the senate at the last session by
a very close vote, I being among
the number that opposed it, and
nmv reason for voting against~
making it unlawful for- a child
to work in a cotton mill.
was that I felt that par-ents
were responsible for their chil
dren and they should be left the
freedom of managing their own,
'and that the legislature should
not interfer-e. Then I opp1osed
the bill, because there was no
provisiont for the chiildlren for
bidden to labor in the mills, to
make them go to school, and if
they were not compelled to go to
school, and not allowed to work.
in my opinion the adage about
an idle brain being the devil's
wokshop would be verified. I
cn see the ill effects of chlildren
having to toil in mills, but to let
them grow up in vagabondage
would be worse. There are wid
prop, take the children out of
the mills and to the poor house
they would have to go. Tl
theorists and sentimentalists
who are pressing this class of

hesitancy in saving that if anv

ground, that it is not a -eneral

made, not until then will the big

sensible license which can be
collected. In Sumter they have
a ".(0 license, and the result is
they (10 not collect one cent, the
same in Orangeburg. while Wil
liamsburg and Florence have no
license at all. These big plan
ters do not want a poor man to
have the privilege of selling his
cotton in the seed, because they
believe it might keep them from
getting everything he makes,
and uniless they are prevented
by a court decision they will
make things more and more op
pressive, so that a poor man will
not be able to buy, barter or ex
change anything without first
obtaining the consent of the
owner of the land -upon which
he lives. I regard the license
system nothing more or less than
oppression for the benefit of the

The bill to increase the salary
of the magistrate at St Paul has
passed the senate and is now
over-in the House, where, I am
informed, it may meet with the
opposition of one member of the
delegation; a majority of the
delegation agreed to an increase
of salary on the ground that the
amount of work done by that
magistrate warrants the increase.
The St Paul magistrate's office
turned into the treasury already
since January 1st about A70. I
introduced the bill for the in
crease because I thought it was
just and without any.care as to
the political effect. I am not
here to play politics, I am here,
sworn to do my duty, and every
measure introduced andl voted
for by me, is with a conscienti
ous desire to act for the best in
terests ef tire whole people. ]
do not bring to the senate any
personal batred. nor do I bring
any personal favors, and while]I
am opposed to increased salaries
as a rule, I am equally opposed
to starving to death a good offi
cer, and thus cripple the service.
My incorporation bill has not
yet been reported from the com
mittee on account of the absence
of the chairman, and as it is get
ting late in tire session I am
afraid it will not get through.
The bill that was to be framed
for the Summerton charter has
not reached me yet. I gave the
petition to solicitor Wilson but
up to now no bill has been drawn.
I mention this in order to let the
people of Summerton know that
I am not responsible for the de
lay. All bills are framed in the
Solicitor's department and I
have been doing my best tc
urge the drawing of this bill.
Solicitor Wilson said that Mr
Purdy was to draw the bill, and

iditor The Man iinig Tinies:
After an alsence from your columns
of several m.)nths I will scratch you a
line or two, whether it finds its way to
the waste-basket or not.
Well, another year has slipped by
and still another fairly on its way. I
haven't beer in this world as long as
some other people I know, but I don't
think I can remember a year when the
farmer, as a class, had to start in for
nother crop under as gloomy circum
stances. That is a broad assertion to
make, but just think how many farmers
on the first day of March next will not
have a grain of home-made corn. And
how many haven't got a grain now, and
how many have been buying corn ever
.,acte the first of .Tanuary. We may
!and do have to buy a lot of things every
Cr. but great frogs and tarapins, to
have to buy corn, bread. the statff of
life, and not only to have to be buying
it now. but to have been buying it ever
.sice before 't was made. If that ain't
somethin' elsEe then I'd like for some
bidy to tell me what it is. And corn
already a dollar a bushel and just a
trottin' right on, like it didn't care
whether we got any or not. But we
ain't so bad off as we might be; and
there is one thing among many other
things that we have always got to be
thankful for. and that is the fact that
Nwe are curiously. fearfully, wonderfully
and amazingly made. You just think
about it a little and you see what I say
about man is so. Here he is. ain't got
no corn, ain't got but mighty little
meat, and over half of 'em ain't got
none; ain't got no taters, ain't got no
rice, ain't got no peas, ain't got no
syrup, in fact ain't got no nothin' but
a debt hangin' over him from last year,
and a awful curious feelin' somewhere
about him, that maybe, perhaps, there
ain't any use to ask his good old friend
the merchant for any more credit until
that last year debt is paid. Of course
we ain't all in that bad a fix, but a heap
of us is, every inch of it. Right here
is where that amazing fact comes in.
In spite of all these facts a starin' us in
the face, we wool hatters are just goin'
ahead with big, willin', hopeful hearts,
getting ready for another crop, just
like we had plenty, and I do say, when
vou can see that we ain't all discour
aged all to pieces and down in the
mouth about our prospects, then you'l
have to admit that man is curiously and
And. Mr. Editor, this chat about hard
times brings another thought to my
mind. When a merchant fails, when
he makes a lot of bad sales to untrust
worthy people that won't pay their
debts. that's one cause of failure, but I
believe a more general cause for failure
on the merchant's part is bad manage
ment on his part, but let the cause be
what it may, when he fails all his bosses
come to see him and he patches up
things to the :une of about 25 or 50
cents on the dollar, and he starts out a
new'man, healed and elected.
Now, when a farmer fails, in place of
settling up for 25 or 50 cents on the dol
ler, that same old debt sticks to him
like grim death to a cooter's back, and
right there it sticks right on as long as
he's able to plant a little patch of cot
I ton and promise to pay. This is a
mighty carious old world. but for all
that it's just the best old world to live
in that I ever seen.
I see from the. papers that one of
them big warehouses is for sale. Now
you town fellows what's got money do
the right thing. fall in line and buy it
and run it according to the editor of

you'l buy tobacco next fall will be a
