Columbia, S. C.. February 4th,
The Legislature is now turned
towards the home stretch, and
the sooner it reaches it, in my
opinion the better off will the
State be. It may be unbecoming
in me to say so, but the truth is
what - the people want, I have
never before attended a session
where so much work has been
cut out and so little done. The
Calendars are full and they are
continually being added to, when
it is known that it will be impos
sible to consider a large portion
of them at this session. The
measures acted upon are of but
little general consequence, and
most of them are local in their
operation. Of course, these local
measures are important for their
immediate localities and must
come from the Legislature.
-The prohibition bill introduced
in the Sena'te was killed without
debate and happily so, because
ha the bars been let down for
debate it would have resulted in
crimination and recrimination
with the result the same. The
defeat of prohibition in the Sen
ate does not indicate a majority
opposed, not at all, in my opinion
the majority of the Senators
would have voted for prohibition
did they not feel a moral obliga
ion to stand by the compromise
made last year. I judge others
by myself, while I am no Prohi
bitionist yet I recognize that the
dispensary was voted out of Clar
endon and, ordiLarily, this would
indicate that a majority of my
constituents want prohibition,
repr-senting them and not my
self alone, I shoultd vote in ac
cordance with their expressed
wish.-s, out under the circum
stances, -I r'egarded the corn
*prom-se binding until a new leg
islature is elected, this was also
the view of a number of Prohi
Rev. J. L. Harley, the bead of
the anti-saloon league, came to
me alter the prohibition bill was
killeo and asked if I would vote
to refer the question to the peo
ple, I told him no, if the refer
ence was to be made in a general
election, and if it was to be in the
Democratic primary the legisla
ture wa's not the place to have it
done. I told him that I was per
fectly wille for the State Exe
entive Committee to submit the
question in the primary, and if a
member of the state convention I
woulti vote to require the commit
tee. to submit the question to the
Tpeople in the primary, and have
aspecial pledge for all car-zlidates
>to sign before they are entitled
torun in the primary. I am op
Dosed to the legislature ordering
a general election in which to
submit such a question, because
it can only result in bringing
about the dragging of the negro
into our politics. Both sides be
come worked up to -an intense
bieat and both will resort to al
most anything to win. Mr. Har
ley atfmitted to me that in scale
places where the vote was taken
-procured for negroes, so if it has
been done in the elections that
were of localsignificance, it needs
no sage to see the danger ahead
for white man's supremacy when
the question becomes a State one.
Then too, in our primary none
but white men can vote, and these
can do so without the formalhty
of presenting their tax receipts
and registration tickets, a thing
repugnant to the white man be
cause he feels these requirements
were not intended for him. I am
not certain but heel satistied that
I convinced Mr. Harley there was
merit in my position, and when
h'e presents my views to his co
workers I think they will reach
the conclusion that the primary
is the place to get an honest ex
pression of tbe white masses.
My readers will remember my
allusions to some ladi'os who were
button-holing the members and
pleading with them to vote for
prohibition, and some of them
were so persistent that it was an
noying, since then 1 have receiv
ed aletter fromn a prominent mem
ber of the Woman's Christi:.n
Temperance Ujnion, and she vir
taally repudiates the methods em
ployed by the little band of
strangers from other States, and
with regard to the leader she has
no right to represent herself as
speaking for the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Union, that she
made an effort to secure employ
ment from them, but her servic
es were declined. The letter re
ceived by me is not for publica
tion but in stating as much as I
haye I am sure the writer of it
will not object. I have a high re
gard for the Woman's Christian
-Temperance Union. they are do
ing a grand work and should re
ceive all the encouragement pos
sible consistent with conditions.
My observations have been this
organization will listen to reason
and reoni-eromnditions a they
exist. they are not made of a 0c6
of sniveling women who come
crying around., but they approach
men in a dignified manner, tell
them their wants and leave the
matter for consideration, in this
way they have accomplished
much, and a gentleian when a)
proached by them does not look
over his shoulder to see who is
watching his embarassment but
isalways pleased to converse with
and introduce them to his fellows
but that other set, when seen ap
proaching, it is who can succeed
in dodging them the fastest. The
Senator rrom Spartanburg may
not know it but his coteagues who
had hearts felL sorrow for him and
the others with tiendish glee. en
joyed the constancy with which
he was being tagged after by
14"the bride.- It was suggested
that the newly married husband
had a grudge against the Spar
tanburg Senator and was getting
even, if it is so that groom must
have a heart of stone, for I would
not punish my worst enemy in
such a manner. The mournful
faced tar-heel would at least wait
until she could get a fellow in a
committee room where they miglit
be private from the gaze of the
wicked herd. and then she would
turn loose her tear-spigot and get
busy with her word pictures of
the horrors of drink and giving
instances of aood men and women
who had gone to the bow-wows
because they were not restrained
from the drink evil, in nearly
every case she told of the victims
who went to perdition, some few
I were rescued by her and are now
safely in heaven. Her story was
well recited had it not been for
the frequent resort to the hand
kerchief to wipe away the tears,
but these interruptions detracted
from the effect, then to reinforce
her appeal she would put herself
in an attitude of silent prayer, all
the while forcing her listener out
of respect. to stay with her until
it snitxd her to let him go. We
heard of one man who slipped
out of the room while the lady
was praying for him and when
she raised her bead and found
that he had vanished she was not
so meek and lowly, but rather
manifested a temper and said
some things about the man. These
women mean well perhaps but
their sisters should %age them
during the session of the legisla
ture at least.
One of the most important
bills up for discussion, compul
sory education, met its death in
the House, it never reached the
Senate at all, whether the House
made a mistake in defeating this
measure is a question, there is
much illiteracy among the whites
in the State and the negroes ar
fast becoming educated, the effect
upon the future will be of great
consequence. 1 favor ai moditie~d
compulsory education law, what
I tuean by a modified law is. that
if the legislature will enact a law
;that the execution of it is put en
tirely in the hands of the trustees.
just as is the school tund, then.I
will be glad to vote for a compul
soty education law, something
must be done to get the white
children of the State in the
schools, the number of school age
not attending is appalling, and it
must effect the future citizenship
It is the duty of the legislature to
provide the necessary means to
have the children given an ele
mentary education at least, and
it cannot be done unless compul
sory means are resorted to, be
cause there are parents who are
in~iffrent. preferring to make a
slave of their children and profit
by the labor of their hands, rat -
,erthan go to work themselves to
give their offspring the support
they are entitled to from the au
thor of their condition. This is
no orer drawn theory, fortunate
1 in the iowns the children at
tend the schools, but in the coun
try and about the mills it is
shameful to see the number of
children of school age who are
back horses of parents that only
appreciate their children from a
mercenary standpoint. -W hy
and John to school when he can
make his three dollars a week in
the mill. or Mary either when she
can cook and wash. whlile the
-old oman' is following the ox at
the plow?" There is never a
thought of John or Mary's future
welfare, but the negro in the ad
oining field is working from early
morn until late in the night to
keep his John and Mary at school
so that they ca-n enter upon tMe
world's requirements with the
ability to hold their own. The
only reason why compulsory ed
ucation is unpopular is because
the demagogue has preached a
false doctrine and has caused
Imany to believe that it would
force the negroes to go to school
and monopolize the school fund.
1Such a doctriine is foolish, and
made only for selfish purposes
a desire to appeal to prejudice
because ii will find no place im
reason. However, so far as this
sess~ion is concerned there will be
nothing further done along this
think I mentioned the gun li
Icense of the Audubon Society.
The bill had my opposition be
cause it is based en a wrong prin
ciple. and should it become a
law, mark my prediction. that it
will amount to only providing a
good snug berth for Mr-. James
Henry Rice and some Wardens
Iunder him. The chief warden is
1to receive a salary larger- than
any of our State odicers, and his
subordinates are to get $1,90 a
year. It is the introduction of the
e spionage or spy system which
the people of this State resent,
and why is it wanted? Have the
people demanded it? It is a de
mand of the Audubon Society. 1
looked over the report of thbe Au
dubon Society that is waking tis
demand and I find that Clar-endon
~as a membership in it of eight
persons and not one of the eight
them live r. incorporated towns.
the same condition exists all over
the State, scarcely any of the
members live outside of the
towns. I find in this report the
names of some millionaires who
live in New York. but who are
interested in gane preserves.
either owned or leased by them
for their winter outings, Vet to
make better shooting for the fewj
town sportsmen and the northern
touret everyxxly must give up a
privilege that was handed down
from the beginning of this coun
try, or pay out money to create
positions wito big pay for men
i vho have been failures ait of I
their lives. The amount of the
license is small under the propos
ed bill. fifty cents a year licens
to have a gun. In my judguent
this small amount is only a feeler.
It it is submitted to the demand
will be a prohibitive license to all
exceot the rich and the tourists:.
as an evidence of this the advo
cates of the license although
claiming they wanted to protect
the birds., refused to vote to pro- I
hibit the shooting of birds for a
period of three years. and then it
was sought to get them1 to con
sent to stop the shooing of hirdls
for ono year, this they also dt
clined. saying it would break off
the coming into the State crowds
of people who come for Lunting
purposes principally. They are
not after bird protection half so
much as they are after the loaves
and tishes of big salaried offices
which this legislation seeks to
provide. I succeeded in getting
Clarendon exempted from the
I provisions of the Act, but the ad
vocates of the bill finally got the
Senate to reverse itself and put
Clarendon back into the clutches
of the Audubon Society with its
membership of eight persons
here, but the tight is not over yet.
the bill has to have another read
ing and I shall renew the fight on
At the request of Rev. S. 0.
Cantey I have had passed and sent
to the House a joint resolution to
release him from the obligation
Ito teach school as was required
of him when he graduated at the
Citadel. Mr. Cantey began teach
ing and his health gave awv
which forced him to stop. when
he got better he went into the
ministry and is now a member of
the conference, preaching at
Batesburg. The joint resolution
will pass the House without ob
jection just as it did the Senate.
The more I try to find means
to keep from raising the county
levy the more am I convinced it
cannot be done without making
the deficit greater. The income
I taxes isS12,980: tines and licenses
$2,000: commutation tax $5.000;
total $19,980. Tne demands for
1909 were $2,50 showing a d
icit of $3,520. There must be
means providnd to wipe out this
deicit, and it cannot be done un
less the lev v is raised to meet it.
I have, as best I could, looked
over the .expenditures of the
county and I do not see a single
item 'they could have avoided
paying the money of the people
out for, yet the expense has in
creased to the extent that claims
have been approved for more
than the income admitted.
Up to the time I left Columbia
the celebrated Tillman case had
not been decided by the supreme
court. The people bare made
up their minds as to who should
get those children, but the de
cision to have effect must come
from the court. This case has
opened the eyes of the legis
lature to wipe out this relic of
barbarism and they will wipe
the statute which the Tillmans
claim the children under from
the books and enact a law
that will give a mother her
rights. There is much feeling
against Senator Tillman, so
much so, that the Senate ief used
to consider a resolution to invite
him to address the General As
IThe full budget for the year
~1910. has not been fully made up
et, so far, however, it shows
that the amount necessary will
be about $150,000 more than last
year. and if the appropriations
continue there will hav-e to be a
lift in the State levy as well as
the county. Well may the tax
~paers say they are heavily bur
dened and unless clamor for
money ceases, approp: iations for

and I realize that as the State

working for prohibition when in
fact it is for politics. A.
Senator Tillman said that his
son's wife. Mrs. Lucy Dugas
Tillman. thought herself better
than the Tillmans. Judging from
the facts that have come to light
in connection with the recent lit

Lucy Dugas Tillman was correct
in her judgment.
Ail Probable Future Events Arranged
For In Advance.
On the appointed evening I arrived
at the given time, and after an ex
cellent dinner. at whbi.a all members
of both families were present. we re
paired to the great drawing room,
where the chairs had been arranged in
a semicircle about two small. round
tables. Presently two grave old gen
tiemen. the family notaries, who had
not been seen to smile during the
whole dinner, took their seats in front
f the tables, and when we were all
assembled the eider commenced to
read a long memolr, which he an
nounced he had compiled with the help
of his colleague. Then, to my utter
amazement, he began to name all the
possessions of the future bride and
bridegroom-so many bonds and mnort
gages, so many houses, farms, wood
lands. prairies, articles of personal
adornment. furniture and jewels: the
ways In which they might be used or
disposed of. what would happen in

The Crew, the Work and the Kind of
Life the Men Lead.
Life aboard a submarine is not so
unpleasant or dangerous as one might
Imagine, but it is entirely ditferent
from that led on other types of ships.
The crew. usually consisting of two
officers and fourteen men. is selected
from vv"unteers after a most rigid
medical xamination. Service rarely
extends beyond a period of two years.
and real work on a submarine is limit

Pageantry Appeals to the Negro's

and he wanted to know, says Harris
Dickson in Success Magazine. With
his southern friend he was hurrying to

horseback. on foot: negroes with
swords and axes. stumpy negroes with
Masonic banners. lean negroes with
