THE GONZALES INCIDENT.
The State's Attack Upon President
Evans lecceives Attention--Talk
Atbout Expelling Its Reporter.
The session of the constitutional con
vention on Wednesday bid fali- to p~ass
otT qjuietly, but just before ad journmenat
a storm appear-ed to be brewing, when
M r. A. Howard Patterson, of Barnwell,
took the floor. The trouble was brought
about by an editorial in The State
which reflected on Gov. IEvans' course
in the memorIable debate between the
Tillmans, in which he was accueed of
falsifying the report of the tellers.
Mr. Patterson rose and said : " Mr.
President, I have a resolution which I
dc-tire to offer, aud as it is a personal
matter concerning the presIdent, I
would ask that one of the vice presi
dents be called to the chair."
Every one in the hail knew what the
resolution related to.
President Evans called Mr. Talbert
to the chair and withdrew.
Mr. Patterson: Mr. President I of
fer the following resolutlon, and ask
for its immediate consideration :
Whereas, " The State," a newspaper
published in the city of Columbia, did
on the 17th inst., in its editor-ial col
umns contain the following statement
in reference to the action of the pr-esi
dent of this convention in announcing
the vote uipen a motion to take a r
cess, when the question as to whether
the name of Saluda should be Inserted

before this convention on the 16ith inst.,
to wit: " On a division vote intended
to defer final action on the mnatter
until Irby's forces could be rallied,
the presi den topenly and defiantly mnis
stated the returns of the tellers, sub
tractin g. two announced votes from
Ir by'ss side in order that he migh t show
a majority of one against postpone

Resolved, That as said editoral state

tor Irby having announced upon the
floor of tile convention that the an

and as said statement was a reflection
upon the honesty and integrity of the
president of this convention and an
I isult to this body :be it
Reosolved, That this convention do
hereby pronounce said editorial state
ment as being a malicious falsehood.
Mr. Patterson stated that this we.s a
matter that this convention she'ld
pass upon in a few seconds and not~a

protect our presiding officer from insult

BUTLER HlrS BACK.
He Uses Very Strong Language With
Reference to Senator Tillimnan.
Gen. M. C. Butler arrived in Colum
bia on Wednesday morning direct from
Now York, and his coming so soon
after the excoriation given to him by
Senator Tillman very naturally gav'e
rise to all manner of sensational ru
- mors, among others that he intended
making a personal assault upon Till
man. When he was asked if he wished
to say anything for publication with
refei ence to Tililman's attack upon him
r in the convention, he replied :
r " No, sir; I believe not. My consider
r ation for his brother, George D. Till
man, who is a manly man. a gentle
ir an and always strikes right out from
the shoulder, never hitting below the
belt, restrains me from saying a great
many things that I could say. I have
derounced Ben Tillman to his face as
a coward, a liar and a thief and he did
not resent it. If I should kick him
naw he would howl like a spaniel and
doubtless in lict me for assault and
battery. You know, you can't keep up
with a constitutional liar like he is, and
I shall leave him to enjoy all the glory
b e can gain by attacking a man behind
his back, when he has no Opl)( rtunity
to reply. His statement, so far as it
el tos to me, is a tisue of fahehoods.

their wIndinug sheet, in the shape of a

little things, aboet as large as a pecan

pure white, seine green, some pink,

soon hatched out into little silk worms

But we didn't wait for many to cut
their way out of the cocoons. We put
them in a p~ot of hot water and they

reel olose by we would tuca the reel th<
Just like our grandmothers used to th<
turn it in winding spun truck-turn it ow
until it clioked and then take the out N<
off and begin again. Just so we reeled is
the raw silk and kept putting more co- th
coons in the hot water. In this way In4
we reeled off every bit of the winding til
sheet and loft the ugly dead ohrysalis out
lioating on the water. When they ac- lan
cumulated so as to be in the way we Tli
skimmed them out and threw them cot
Tnis is only an outline of the busi- tu
ness, and I want the young folks to soo lai
how the thing is done from the tiny wa
little egg to the raw silk upon the reel mc
and from there to the loom. My fa- of:
ther was a pioneer in the inorus multi- lit
caulus craze, as it was called, and I Wl
think the only man in Georgia who cla
made silk and sold it. I remember till
that one year he sold $600 worth at du(
one shipment and he sold some other to
smaller lots. He would have co1- fac
tinued the business, but his trees took the
the "die back" or something and he wit
had to give it up. It was said that the .
continued stripping of the leaves will 1l,
kill them in about three years, for the T
leaves are the lungs of plants and they So
can't keep on making new lungs just ing
to please the silk worms. These trees tbi
were grown from cuttings and we be- )e
gan to strip them the second year, tl
when they were about as large as a
broom-handle. They had no branches -
and were about as far apart as young
apple trees in a nursery. We stripped
them like pulling fodder, coming
down with both nands and leaving R
only a few leaves at the top. It would vc
have been good fun if it had not been in
so monotonous and required so much
of Bon lFranklin's advice about "early
to bed and early to rise," etc. I havn't [
gotten over that habit yet, but it
hasn't made me wealthy or wise. I
never found out how one worm can get
red silk out of a mulberry leaf and an
other one will get white or yellow.
I heard Capt. E0van Howell make a
speech once and he got eloquent and
humble as he said: "My friends, we
are helpless and ignorant creatures.
We know noth ing hardlyabout the mys
tories of nature that are all around us.
The good book says: 'Great is the mys
tery of god liness.' We can't tell why
it is that when a goose cats grass the
grass turns to feathers and when a
horse eats grass it turns to hr'-r and
when a sheep eats grass it turnm into
wool." And he might have added and -
when a worm eats mulberry leaves it
burns to silk.
Tile exposition has been a great
strain upon Atlanta, but that town is
smart and gamey and will make it a
grand success. When the scheme was
first proposed we outsiders never said
anything to discourage it, but we
smiled and whispered was there ever
such cheek. Right after the great W
Chicago fair and right in the middle W
of a financial panic for a little city of Wn
only 100,000 people to propose such an In
absurd scheme Is perfectly ridiculous. a'
And to think of the impudence of u:
asking for the patronage of the nation- I
al government and an appropriation. w
But the managers kept right on and ft
have never faltered for a moment. w
And they got the Smithsonian institu- It
tion and the Liberty bell, and they so- of
riously discussed the practically of di
borrowing the Bartholdi statue of lib
erty from New York harbor and put- a
ting it up in Clara Mcer.
I see that the hotel departmernt is
all right and that the visitors will be D
sheltered and fed decently. There has
been a little Ilirtation going on about
the street car lines charging 10 cents,
but that is all buncomib, I reckon. It
Is a right big rumpus about a very lit -
tle matter and I reckon will die outf
after a few more have had their say.
It1 i very amusing idea for a South
Carolina uain and a Brunswick preach
cir to write up and say they wvill not
come to the fair nary step if the street
car fure is raised to 10 cents. Why,14
this is a free country and those gentle- 0
men can stay at home or' they can
conmc and prtronize the Southern rail
road that will charge 10 cents, too. Itm
does not seem to be the price, but it is
the raise that arouses their indigna
tion. But this little episode will allI
settle down. It reminds mc, however,
of the time when we proposed to build
a public academy in Rome and it was N
to cost $1,800. The boys had put me
forward to run for mayor and the issue
was " academy " or' "no academy."
Of course I was foi' progross and the
noisiest and bitterest enemy I had to
contend with took the streets and do- pr
clared that I would tax the people to sil
death, and lhe for one was not going to TI
stand it. Looking ovei' the taxbooks at th
his sworn retur'i of his proper'ty I found '"
that his part of the academy would be0 -E
47 cents. So I pleasantly showed him J.
the figures and told him I would pay1
lisa part If lhe would hush--and he
hushed. Now let every body bush tit
about this car fare business, for the of
people are tiredl of .it and in these "I
par'ts arc not making any fuss about It. av
it will cost our people fmrom *2 to $3
each to go to the fair and enjoy the day
andl come back home and talk about it
for aL month and we arc not going to
miss It for 5 cents : we arc not buIlt
that way. I should think it w"ouldl re
mind a newvspaper' man of those amus
ing fellows who evymr and anon get mnad
with the editor and wvrite to hiim to
stop) thoir pap)er. But I don't reckon
the fair will Ihust imp on account of the
absence of an~y amn who swears he
wont comoI if he has to pay 10 cents to
the street care. I hope not.

connect with another room, and must
have but one doorway for entrance _
