GIVE HIM A HEARING.
Tili? ADVKRTISKK is not n disci
|de of Mr Tillman; nt thc same
time, wo soo no reason why he
should he hin hoed for the disorder
ly conduct of the citizens of Raro- j
Well who preferred not to hear Sen- ;
ator Y cum ins spea'c. A Joint
discussion had hoon arranged. Till-!
man und Youmans were the speak
ers, and fair-play, to say nothing of!
politeness and a sense of justice,
should have restrained those who
attended the mooting from Inter- i
ti ring with the program. We are
fold that when the mob hogan to
tri ven a preference to the Edge
field speaker, and to show a de
cided desire to shut off the home
raised orator, and to down him hy
cries cf "Tillman." Mr Tillman
arose and tried to quiet the distur
bance. Ile did not succeed, but
we see no reason why the Senator
from Barnwell should become of-j
fended because of his effort to put :
down a demonstration which was j
?Uko an insult to Mr Youmans and
tho committee who had arranged!
the joint discussion. Senator Your- I
mans should have held bis temper'
?Md he should have been allowed,
to speak, if those present had a
desire to show a preference for!
Tillman, good and well, but they |
had no right to deny to You man
the right of free-speech. They could
have quietly withdrawn, or shown
hy other means, loyalty to their
lender; but reformers should not
beal down discussion by rowdy
ism.! Wo give Mr Tillman credit
for ?ill that he does, nod charge to
bim nothing for which ho ls not re
sponsible. Wo do not believe he
desired to interfere with the joint
discussion, but the Barnwell epi
sode only shows the danger of such
reckless talk. When a man comes
forward as a reformer and uses
such unguarded and flrey denunci
ations against existing Institutions,
and men in whom confidence ia re
posed; whan a people are this ar
roused, they are upi to become un
managable and often run over their
loader. What can those who throt
tled Mr Youmans hope to gain?
Po they for one moment imagine
that in this free democratic coun
try a citizen is not permitted to dis
pute? Can it bo possible that this
mighty reform must be accomplish
by .silencing opposition hy brute
force? Far from it. If the charges
of extravagance and Incompetency
in the administration of that gov
ernment which rod-shirt democra
cy of'7(1 organized-bo true, the
followers of Mr Tillman had noth
ing to fear from anything that Sen
ator Youmans or anyone else
might say. Convir.ee the people of
South Carolina that they have mis
placed canfidon 'e, and they are not
slow to acknowledge and rectify
the mistake. Convince them that
those who were put In office In '70
and who have remained since, are
either extravagant or in competent,
and we believe that no solicitation
or eloquence will prevent their
overthrow. But we do not believe
that the more conservativo fol
lowes of Mr Tillman would sanc
tion thc co ursa of those Barnwell
people, Rven In Laurens County,
where he has ns strong a following
perhaps ns In any part of tho Stat*?,
WO believe a decent hearing would

A TALKING MACHINE.
Edison** Phonograph nt Lust
Mr T. A. Edison is quoted ns fid
lows in regard to his phonograph:
"After eight months nf steady work
I have made a commercial inven
tion, tr'y pbonocrnph I expect to
see in every business office. The
first five hundred will, I hope, bi
ready for distribution about the
end of January. Their operation ls
simplicity itself mid it cannot full.
Tho merchant or clerk who wishes
to send a letter bas only to set the
machine in motion und to tulk in
bis natural voice and at the usual
rate of speech into thu receiver.
When be bas finished, the sheet or
"phonogram," ns I call it, ready for
putting into a little box made on
purpo.-o for the niall. Wo are milk
ing t ho sheets in th reo sixes, one
for letters of from eight hundred
to one thousand words, another
size for twenty-five words and an
other size for four hundred words.
I expect Hint an arrangement
can be made with the |mst office
authorities, enabling the phono*
gram cores tr? be sent at the some
rate as a letter? The receiver of a
phonogram will put it into bis ap
paratus, und the message will be
given out more clearly, moro dis?
tinctty, than the best telephone
message ever ?ont. Tho tones of
the voice on the two phonographs
which I have finished are so per
fectly rendered that one can dis
tinguish between twenty different
persons, each ono of whom bas
sold a few words. Ono tremen
dous advantage ls that the letter
may be repented II thousand times
if necessary. Tho phonogram does
not wear out by use. Moreover, it
limy ht; filed away for a hundred
years and lie ready the instnnt it
la needed. If a man dictates bis
will to the phonograph there will
be no disputing the authenticity of
tho document with those who
knew the tones of bis voice in lifo.
The cost of making the phonogram
will lie scarcely more than the cost
nf ordinary letter paper. Tho ma
chine will read out tho letter or
messngo at th? same speed with
ahlch lt wns dictated. I have ex
perimented willi a device for en nh?
lng printers to set type directly
'rom the dictation of the phono
graph, and think that lt will work
0 a charm. It ls so arranged that
he printer, by touching a lever
1 Ith his foot, ni lows five or ten
fords of the phonogram to be soun
led. If he la not satisfied with the
Irst hearing, beean make it repeat
he same word's over and over
