Reminiscences of Gen. (Jordon,
tn August, 1895. thc writer heard
the late Gen. Gordon lecture upon
"The Last Days of the Confederacy"
at Ocean Grove, ??. J. There were
10,000 people present in the vast au
ditorium, many of whom hardly knew
whether to bo friendly or hostile to
tho great leader.
I shall never forget the opening re
marks. After tlu> usual preliminaries
of addresing an audience, he said, in
an intensely attractive and thrilling
way: "My countrymen!" With those
words he captured his audience and
held it spell-bound for two hours. I
may say that of all the impressions
tho lecturer made, that of intense de
votion to the cause for which he
stood, plus his love for the whole
united country, were lasting and deep.
In the vast audience were many of
the Blue and Grey, whose cheers and
yells were abundant. The closing
part of the speech I will never forget.
Some ono evidently had questioned
the loyalty of tho South to the flag.
It was an incident that fired the gal
lant soldier-lecturer. Then, too, there
might have been a little home-sickness
upon his part; for the tribute of un
dying devotion to his nativo South
land, what she wm fd do in case our
country was attacked, satisfied the
most skeptic. It wits an occasion of a
life time for many of us. Long before
this incident the speaker had caught
the. Inspiration of his vast audience;
and, it will always soem to me unpre
meditated, seizing a large American
flag, amid tumultuous cheering, inter
spersed with the old tiger yell of many
a hard fought battlefield, he said:
"We lift aloft this proud banner of
freedom and bid universal humanity
to catch it?inspiration."
The.next time I heard Gen. Gordon
was Brookville, Penn., during a coun
ty teachers' Institute. The subject
of bis lecture tho same, nill ing this
evening (Jordon spoke of one batttle
In which men were slain until the
dead were several feet high. He said
ho believed more men were slain in
this battle than any other battle dur
ing the war, according to the number
of men engaged. He then said: "I
suppose there is no one here who was
in this battle." Up arose a tall gen
tleman, Major MacMurray, and said:
"General. I commanded the men you
refer to." Roth were oblivious to tho
hundreds present, as they talked as
men can who fought one another
fiercely, lt was graphic in the ex
treme. The Major's comment after
wards was: '"He (Gordon) was not
only a line fellow, but a brave man."
Let me close this narrative with an
amusing incident of a Deacon of the
church I was pastor of in Brookville.
Deacon L. drew a large pension
from the government. It was gener
ally conceded that the deacon's feel
ings were hurt moro during the war
t han his body was injured. This good
man approached his pastor and said:
"I understand you have heard that
rebel Gordon." Now, the deacon was
always In thc front seat in church,
until 1 called upon him to pray. Ever
after be was near the door, when he
was at church. So my reply was:
'Deacon, I have heard Gen. Gordon.
You go and hear him, and if you are
not satisfied let mo know and I will
refund your money.' He went, and
as usual occupied ttic frontseat. Gen.
Gordon spoko of some battles that
were won by tho Federals. Each in
cident increased tho deacon's enthusi
asm until the audience was amused at
his act ions. The lecturer then men
tioned battles which were won by the
Confederates. It was a case of quiet,
more quiet, then graveyard stillness
upon tho part of the deacon, when
(Jordon turned and slapping him fran
tically upon tlie shoulder said:
"Shout, comrade: Why don't you
In both of these cases the gallant
soldier made hosts of friends. Ills
dovotion to his comrades of the 'OO's
and his country were uplifting to
many. All eagerly listened, laughed,
cried and cheered during his thrilling
lecture-Thc Last Days of tho Con

Their Third Reading |n
At the morning session of the sew
ate Wednesday two" bills of much 1 im
portance were disposed of. The si ot
machine bill provides with certain
amendments that no machines shall
be either operated or kept on any ont >'s
premises. The exemptions made aire
aa to machines in which the coin p ut
ia gota a certain and uniform return
and in which there is no element Vjf
chance. The other bill ls that to thx
the franchises of corporations, thatls,
on a basis of the amount of business
done. Both of these bills were se
to the house.
As said, the slot machine"blll-vi
amended so as to exenpt welghl?g,
measuring, musical and vending ma
chines and'all machines which give for
the coln a certain fair and uniform
return and to which there Js no ele
ment of chance. Thus it is ?een tllat
slot gas and electric meters, telephone
booths, shoe lace, chewing gum uha
chlnes, weighing machines and th<>se
of a like kind will not bo shut ont.
The exemptions were made through
amendments by Senators Hydriek s'and
Sheppard. The bill also provides that
none of the machines not exempt ed
shall bo kept on anyone's premises.
There was a very lengthy debate on
tho bill, some senators wishing to
exempt the slot machines indicated,
others wishing to kill the uso of (all

Senator Peurlfoy oppos:-1 the one
half mill tax on the property value's of
corporations as he was convinced t?iat
lt would keep out of the State for?lgn
corporations and force some domestic
ones to suspend business.
Senator Walker made an expected
move when he proposed to kill the bill.
He did not think that tho State should
enforce double taxation and that was
what the bill amounted to. Jphn
Smith, the morchant, cannot be taxed
but If his ihm is the Jenn Smith com
pany-he is subject to taxatlou unless
protected by ''limited liability" which
Senator Walker thought was really
meant by the constitutional convent ion
as a help to corporate interests. [He
could understand tho taxation of (tho
intangible property of the express,
telegraph and telephone companies,
but the railroads own tangible proper
ty which could be taxed.
Senator G. W. Hagsdale said he did
not think this was tho right way to
raise money and that he agrj@Bd__y}!vh
Senator Walker. He did not think lt
would bo just to exempt merchantile
institutions. It is not right to make
one pay a tax which his competitor
does not and thus lt ls not right to ex
empt any. If money had not been ex

years there would be no need for" the
Senator Hood thought there were
some corporations which enjoyed such
privileges that they should be taxed.
Others, however, enjoyed no more
privileges than individuals and they
should bo exempted. He wanted to
strike out tho section providing that
all State corporations other than those
of a quasi public nature bc charged the
one-half mill tax.
Senator Baysor spoke against any
distinction of this kind. He thought
any corporation of any kind should be
willing to pay the fee for the privilege
of being Incorporated.
Senator McLeod announced that he
was personally interested in mercan
tile concerns and that ho thought it
perfectly fair for them to be required
to pay this fee. They are not now re
quired under the present laws to bear
their proper share of taxation.
As a member of the committee
which framed the bill, Senator Mower
explained it purposes clearly and in
telligently. Ho said that it was
merely a tax on the franchise of the
corporations. The line was drawn
between quasi public corporations and
others. The committee had made the
most equitable disposition that it
could; nothing was taxed in the bill
which ls untaxed under the laws of
the State for the reason tnat this one
half mill tax ls placed on the right of
the corporations to do business and
the only tax now existing isa proper
ty tax such as on Pullman com
Senator Walker's motion to kill the
bill was relected. Senator Hood's mo
tion to strike out section four of the
act did not meet with favor. He then
moved to reduce tho tax on certain
companies, but this was also killed.
Another amendment tabled was that
or Senator J. W. Bagsdalo to includo
In tho bill only corporations enjoying
condemnation and universal domain.
Senator Hood sent in an amendment
to hang up the application of the bill
until Jan. 1, 1905. The bill was then

STORY OF A BATTLE.
Th? Whol* Truth About the Firot
Fight at Fort Arthur.
JAP3 LOST THREE WAR VESSELS.
What an English Correspondent Haya
About tho Losses of the Rus
sians and the Jnpanso
There has been a great deal written
about the first battle between the
Japanese and Russians at Port Arthur.
It was claimed that the Russians lost
three vessels, while the-Japanese loss
was nothing. These dispatches came
from Japanese sources, as was censor
ed to suit them. It now appears that
the Japanese lost more than the Rus
sians. The correspondent of the Lon
don Morning Post, which paper is op
posed to the Russians and in favor of
the Japanese, cabling from Manchuria
to his paper on Wednesday says:
''I have just reached here by special
train from Port Arthur, and, to save
time, have written my account while
traveling on a locomotive. About
midnight on Monday, Feb. 8th, the
town was roused by the firing of big
guns. I hastened to a hill battery
and saw that six Japanese torpedo
boats had approached within half a
mlle of the Russian fleet and were
showing lights, funnels and signals
just like those of the Russians. The
Japanese torpedo boats crept quite
close to the Russian ships before they
Each of the Japanese boats dis

Notwithstanding the continuous fire
from the ships and forts, four o? the
Japanese torpedo boats escaped. One,
however, was sunk, and another,
which was in a sinking condition, was
deserted by her crew and was after
wards captured by the Russians.
The action ceased at 3 a.m. The
loss on the Russian ships waa eight
killed and twenty wounded. Apart
from the disablement of three Russian
ships, the damage done to the fleet
and forts was not very great. There
were many Russian torpedo boat de
stroyers in the harbor, but they were
not ready to resist the attack. The
Japanese, In fact, created a great deal
of surprise, not only by their unex

On Tuesday morning, Feb. 9, news
arrived from Dalny that the Japanese
fleet was steering westward, In attack
formation. It came in sight about ll
a. m. There were in all fifteen ships,
two lines of battle-six battleships,
six first-class cruisers and three sec
ond class cruisers. The Russians had
outside thirteen largo vessels, under
Admiral Stark, on the flagship Petro
pavlovak, and Rear Admiral Prince
Moktomnsky. nn the flagship Peres
vleti, excluding the Pallada and the
Tsarevitch, the latter the flagship of
Rear Admiral Mollas, and the Retvi
san, which was lying aground across
tlie inner harbor entrance. It was
The action was commenced by the
big guns of the land battery. The
morning was dull, with a light wind,
and the heavy smoke rendered it diffi
cult to observe the details of the ac
tion, but I witnessed all that was pos
sible from Beacon Hill, opposite the
entrance to the harbor, In line of the
Ure. Two shells fell near us and
about twenty others fell in the old
town and the western harhor where
many steamers flying neutral flags
were anchored. After the commence
ment of the action all of the peoplo
fled toward a hill outside the town,
A little while after the first shell
was fired a big 12-inch one exploded,
smashing the office fronts of the Suen
berg's Yalu Concessions Company,
and the Russo-Chlnese bank. The
streets wore then entirely deserted
but the local police kept splendid
order. There was no looting; women
and children were very brave. On
both sides I encountered over 300
shells, few of which reached tho mark.
Others did not explode. During the
act ion several merchant steamers out
side the roads moved their position,
but none was allowed to leave its an
chorage in the harbor.
Regiments from the adjoining bar
racks and camps came pouring through
the town to take up defensive posi
tions in the event of the Japanese
landing. The Japanese warships
steamed slowly past, in line of battle,
to the westward and about four miles
olY, each vessel beginning to fire when
opposite the Russian ships, which were
two miles oil shore. The action be
came general. There was no maneu
vering, simply heavy and fast tiring.
The firing ceased at noon, the Ja
panese ships withdrawing to the
southward, having lost one battleship
and one large cruiser put out of acLion.
One small boat was chased and
sunk by the Novlk (Russian), which
afterward received a shell at the wa
ter line, but reached port all right,

while all the rest of the fleet cheered
Even the three. Russian ships
aground fired during the action.
Afterward the Tsarevitch got off at
high water and was towed Into a
largo basin, where she is now being
repaired- The Pallada effected her
own repairs and rejoined the fleet.
The Bet visan was still aground when
I left. Tho casualties on the Russians
side were twenty-two killed and sixty
four wounded. Nearly half of tho
casualties occurred on the Pallada and
The Japanese fleet sailed southward
at 1 p. m. and all was quiet. The
wounded woro brought ashore and re
moved to hospitals. After Monday
night's action many Japanese torpe
does were found floating outside the
harbor. They were securod and their
mechanism was oxtracted. During
the afternoon Viceroy Alexleff ordered
all the women, children and non-com
batants to leave. The slow special
trains were crowded and ran as often
as possible from Dalyn. The women
and children wore Immediately remov

Gov. Hey ward has v?toed the act
relating to "'exclusive jurisdiction"
of the fedotfep government over cer
tain .property- io has acquired and
might hereafter acquire in this State.
Tile bill was- hard fought" In both
houses, on the ground that it would
be delegating to the United States
too much authority over .property'In
this State at the sacriliceof thc rights
of the State. It was argued In reply
that unless this exclusive jurisdiction
?ould bs acquired the secretary of'tue
treasury would decline to continue
work on the federal buildings at Spar
tanburg, Rock Hill, Georgetown and
After several consultations with the
senators from the respective counties,
Gov. Heyward put his veto on tho
measure and Friday sent a message to
the senate, in which body the bill
originated. The message says:
"I herewith return without my ap
proval an act entitled 'an act ceding
to the United States exclusive Juris-1
diction over certain lands acquired for
public purposes within the State, and
authorizing the acquisition thereof.'
My reasons for not approving lt areas
"Section 8, clause L7. art. 1 of the
constitution or the United States con
templates that tile consent of the leg
islature be freely given to the acqui
sition by purchase of avparticular
place or particular places within the
State for one of the purposes enume
rated in the constitution.
"The act goes beyond the intention
of the constitution in consenting to
the acquisition not only by purchase,
but also by condemnation or other
wise- not of a particular place or par
ticular places-butof any place, with
in the State without limitation or
reference to its situation, locality and
present use, or to the size or quality
of the lands Lo be acquired, or to the
purpose for which lt may be acquired
by thc United States government.
"In order to protect the State and
Its citizens, the legislature, in every
cession of lund a ?id-renonciation of its
sovereignly over the same, should first
consider the .situation, location and
present use of the particular place to
be ceded, thc amount of land em
braced in the cession, and tho purposes
for which it is to be ceded In order to
determine whether such cession ls to
