He Discusses the Winds and the
Rains and Touches on Politics.
The elements are unsettled. The
wind seems to be veering southward.
Roosevelt keeps on saying kind words
about us and the Re-publicans are in a
state of appiehension. The G. A. R.'s
made the first ossault on him because
he dared to exait the bravery and
patriotism of our people; but he an
swored them back nobly. And now
they are in consternation because he

The City of Shushan is perplexed. It
looks like there is a power of good
political fun ahead ot us, and we can't
be worsted. McKinley wanted to be
kind, and tliey wouldent let him, btt
my opinion is that, Roosevelt is going
to run the machine according to his
emotions. le is a man of emotions
good, generous emotions-and our emo
tional nature i-% the best part of our
nature. That is the reason that wo
men are better than men; they are
more emotional. A selflsh man, a
greedy man or a politician " per so "
have no emotions. They plot and
scheme for personal advantage. Ham
let said that a politician is a man who
would circumvent God. They bribe
and deceive to gain their end. .But
Roosevelt is outspoken, candid and
fearless. The politician's utterances
are cautious and come from his head;
Roosevelt talks from his heart, and if
he feels like inviting Clark Howell to
dine he is going to do it without con
sulting Mark Hanna or the G. A. R.'s
or for a moment considering what the
party will say about it.
I like Roosevelt because lie has a
wife and children; in fact, he has been
married twice and has two sets of
children. That's all right if the child
ren harmonize and the last wife is as
good to the children of the first wife as
she is to her own. Our nearest neigh
bor for long years had three sets of
children. Colonel Bayard, a widower,
with two children, married Mrs. Hand,
a widow, with three children. Two
more children were born to the last
marriage, and all was peace and har
mony in that household. This reminds
me of another family, where there
were three sets, and they dident har
monize, and one day when they were
quarreling in the back yard the wife
came running in and said to her hus
band: " John, you'd better go out
yonder with a switch; your children
and my children are lighting our child
I am pleased to learn that our Presi
dent is coining to Georgia next fall
and will visit his mother's old home at
Reswell. Think I will meet him there
and show him around, for almost
everybody else is dead but me that was
there when his mother was a girl. I
will show him where we boys played
bullpen and town ball, and whore his
uncle half Dan or half of his Uncle
Dan and I played sweepstakes and Dan
always won my white alleys. Yes, I
will show him around. But that
colony of fine Savannah people, all
blooded stock, are not there now.
There were the Kings and Dunwoodys,
who were in college with me. Not all
the King boys, of.course, for there were
nine of them, and only one sister for
the whole crowd-a beautiful girl. I
have a very dear cousin in Blirming
-ham who has nine girls and one son.
What a p)ity that those twvo families
were not neighbors andl cotemp)oraries
so that the children could have mated
and intermarried. I like families with
numerous offspring. If I had the
making of the constitution, whether
Federal or State, I wouldent let a
bacbe'or hold a public oflice; lie
shouldent be eligible to go to Congress
or the Legislature. It is not possible
for hi.ni to feel deeply concernedl about
the perpetuity of government. It is
the children and the grandchildren we
fathers are living for. An unnmarriedl
man lives for himself. He may be
smart and mioral and well educated,
but, as .Kipling says, he can't under
stand the paternal anxiety.

Columbia 8tnte, Oct. 7.
A statement was given the press
Saturday by Col. Wilic Jones, t
chairman of the Democratic party
this State, who has been an avow
candidate for Senatorial honors, whi

of the State to thinking and talkin

most noted figure today in Sou

It is a proposition that will star
many at the first, but its approprial
ness and merits will be certain to coi
tmand much consideration from tl
people of the State.
Here is what Col. Jones sayo of t]
matter in his statement:

would have been fully as good as th
of any candidate whose name is nc

atorship. I would have no politic
fear to run against any man in tl
State except two, namely, Sonat
Tillman and Gen Hampton, becouse
believe either of them could beat ii
or any other mau in the State.

solution of the Senatorial contest wou
be for all of the young men who a

cept the position and let the old ge

"Without any rellection upon ai
candidate now in the field I belie,
that Gen. Ilampton's views on n
tional polities meet with the approv
of practically all the )emocrat~ in V
State. Such a happy and gracio
event as the selection of Gen Hlampt
at this particular time would make t

so much else for our people to do.
