' LS LATEST DEVELOPMENT
*olumbia, March 20.-The "Lever
questionaire" is the latest develop
ment in the Tillman-Lever fiasco,
which appears to have begun as a
"frame-up," but is winding up in a
ltilenyr. cat: fight. Under the guise
of seeking to learn from the peoI e of
ate etate what they think his "duty"
i tli matter is, as a result of the
wefl-defined opinion among all politi
a0 fetitli5: and creeds in South Caro
Ujna that former Governor Blease will
dreat Senator Tillman hands (own.
,i1r.. Lever is making a bid for the Till
fmalr vote in a series of questions
which it is learned that he has sent to
geople in various sections of the state.
Mr. Lever is quoted as saying that
it is his "desire not to antagonize the
desires of Senator Tillman," but
wants to know "in view of Senator
Tillman's statement in his announce
-ii n: that he will make no campaign
speeches, is it possible for him to be
re-elected ?" etc.
And most miportant, "do you re
gard it as my duty in these circum
:tances * * *to enter the race?" Mr.
Lever wants to know.
With the anti-Reforma bidders for
the Tillman toga undermining each
ot'her's trenches, there is, of course,
rad ito be an explosion, which, how
+aver, wil' hardly do any great damage,
) e the anti-Reform forces are
now so badly stampeded that it is not
expected that the trenches will be so
xery full when the explosion comes.
The whole truth of the situation, as

Rear of H. D. DuBrow' S
shown by the Lever questionnaire, Is
that the anti-Reform faction knows
that it cannot win with Senator Till
man; that Mr. Lever is seeking to su
percede Senator Tillman in command,
but is afraid to give up his commis
sion in congress and doesn't know
what to do, being pretty well 'con
vinced against his will that Blease is
going to beat the field, whoever may
be the anti-Reform candidates, and
that the anti-Reform faction having
failed in its efforts to discard Tillman,
for the reason that Tillman refused to
be discarded, is now forced to recog
nize him as its leader, although Mr.
Lever is pathetically asking: "Is it
possible for him to be re-elected ?"
The following are the three ques
tions which your correspondent learns
Mr. Lever is asking in the letters
which he is sending out:
"First. In view of Senator Tillman's
statement in his announcement that
he will make no campaign speeches, is
it possible for him to be re-elected, or
is his re-election doubtful?
"Second. Do you regard it as my
duty in these circnmstanices and with
my strong desire not to antagonize
the desires of Senator Tillman, to en
ter this race?
"Third. If it is your belief that
Senator Tillman would not be re
elected, or that his re-election is
doubtful, then I would be glad for
your opinion as to whether there is
any other in South Carolina represent
ing President Wilson's views who
would more likely bring this race tto
a successful conclusion than I?"
