SNIFF TREASON_IN THE AIR.
Talbsrt's Speech to bo Made an Excuse for
Unseating all the Tlllmanlte Mambers Whoso
Seats are Contested,
tipecial to the News and Courier.
Washington, Fobruary 18.?There
was a rumor circulated among tbo
. members of the South Carolina delega
tion to-day to the effect that the re
cent speech of Jasper Talbert. which
was denounced as "treasonable" by
Representative Harrett of Massaohu
sott?, would probably cost several
South Carolina Congressmen to lose
their seats. There are four contested
election cases pending before the House
and they are about to bo decided, lu
fact the very day that Representative
Talbert created the scone in the House,
when he was accused of advocating se
cession, it was understood that the
committee on elections having the
.South Carolina cases in hand were
about to report, it was generally un
derstood tbat at len t three, if not all,
of the sitting members from South
* Carolina would be given clear titlos
to their seats. Then came tho Talbert
episode, and almost instantly thcro ap
peared to be a change of sentiment
among certain members of the elections
committee regarding the South Caro
lina oases. The reports said to bo
ready for promulgation were held back
aud discouraging indications were
thrown out to the interested gentle
men from South Carolina. All in
quiries of the committee were met,
with the statement that the committee
was having great troublo In re iching
a docision In these cases. It was also
said that tho Republican national com
mittee were urging the Republicans of
the eleotiona committee not to lose
sight of tho political possibilities in
volved in tbo South Carolina caaos.
Ex-Representative Smalls, one of the
representative colored Republicans of
South Carolina, has been upon the
floor of tho House for several days past
using his political Influence among
Republican members lu behalf of the
Republican contestants In every 1 a -<?
Although he is personally opposod to
G. Washington Murray, who Is con
testing the Charleston district with
Representative Elliott, Smalls is play
ing politics strictly. To the friends
of Governor Morton ho says he has " a
kind feeling for Mr. Morton." To tho
frlondb of Speaker Reed he says It will
be a difficult matter for him to voce
ugalnst tho " Big Man from Maine "
at the St. Louis Convention, and to tho
supporters of tho Allison boom ho says
that the Senator from Iowa la his
personal friend of inany years stand
ing. These incidents, together with
8enntor Tillman's threat to leave tho
Democratic party are surely having a
lamuglng effect upon those South
?Jam'ina members who follow the Tin
In this connection a rather discour
aging fact came to light to-day. Before
the Ttlbort incident one of the South
Carolina members against whom a eon
test Is being made, was discusslDg his
case with a Republican member of the
eleetiens commlttoe. Tho South Cato
llrlan was eager to obtain somo infor
mt tlop bearing upon tho contest, aud
tht Republican member in a friendly
epi 'it was disposed to go as far as pos
sible Id that diroetion without viola
ting tb.9 obligations of secrecy imposed
upon all members of the committee.
The South Carolinian suggested that
he felt quite confident that his ease
would be decided in his fuvor, and to
that oud he was about to securo a
houso in Washington for the remainder
il of the session and send for his family
to join him "hero. This was a very
deep so ander, and the member of the
committee, appreciating that fact, re
plied in the same friendly spirit that
there should be no hesitation about
securing the house, and congratulated
the South Carolinian upon the prospect
of having his family with him shortly.
A few days ago tho same two membcrc
met again and proceeded to discuss the
same uubject. To tho dismay of the
South Carolinian his Republican fr'end
said a change had come over the situa
tion, and advised him not bo In ahurr.t
about engaging a house and bringing
his family to Washington.
JOHN WESLEY'S LOVE AFFAIRS.
All of Them Wore Unfortunate and On?
Filled Him With Lasting Regret.
frThd^Story of tho great Wesley's lovt
affairs, given by Luke Tycrman in hit
" Life and Times of John Wesley,'
forms a strange and most remarkable
series of episodes in his life. Tho tirsl
occurrence was during his mission tc
Georgia, where ho formed a deep at
tachment to a Miss Sophia Hopkey, a
niece of the chief magistrate of the
colony. The earlier biographies ol
Wesley represent the affairs as involv
ing a eonspiraoy on tho part of the
I yonng lady and her frionds against the
reputation of the youthful ascetic.
But so unlikely an account is now dis
credited, and is totally disclaimed by
Mr. Tyerman. Certain it is that
Wesley Was deeply in love; certain,
too, that he reforred tho ease to his
Moravian friends and advisers, who
decided accordingly that he should
Eroceed no furthor in the matter, aud
e is said to havo acquiseced, saying :
"The will of tho Lord be done." How
ever this may have been (and it seems
doubtful whether ho voluntarily gave
up his attachment), the sequel is
equally strange. For we rind him a
few months after publioly refusing the
sacrament to this same lady (then
married to a Mr. Williams) when she
presented herself at the Lord's table.
The grounds of his refusal havo nover
been oleared up ; but it was largely in
consequence of his behavior that ho
drow on himself the odium and per
secution which drovo him out of
For Bomo years after this ho persist
ed in his resolution of celibacy?a
resolution which cortainly was most
advleablo-for one who had embraeed
a life of self denial, labor and home
lessness. In 1742, too, he published
his "Thoughts on a Singio Life," ex
tolling tbat state as tho privilege if
not the duty of all wbo were eapahle
of receiving it; and three years after,
in a published hymn, which is clearly
autobiographical, exprossod himself as
" I have no sharer in my heart,
To rob my ?avior of a part
Anddtfiseorate the whole;
^J?fthTDotrothed to Christ am I,
And wait his coming from the sky
To wed my happy soul."
It was, therefore, with great sur
Srlse, and not without some seandal,
hat in 1749 his friends heard that he
was engaged to a Mrs. Grace Murray,
? young widow, who had' nursed him
in a short illness, and who was actually
accompanying him at that time in his
ministerial travels through tho coun
try. This young woman had been
brought up a- a maid servant, and was
a person of small education, though of
great attractions, and a fervant con
vert to Methodism. She whs a person
of singularly impulsive temperament,
and with an utter disregard of delloaoy
and honor in tho midst of her engage
ment to Wesley allowed herself to co
Jnet also with one of his lay preaohers,
obn Bonnett, and for some months
the most extraordinary alternations
went on, her ohoioo resting sometimes
on one, ooraotiraes on the other of ber
lovers with passionate assertions of
her entire devotedness to each, and
this with int irvals occasionally of a
few hours only.
Charles Wesley, distuned and In
dignant, strove to put hn ocd to the
Bcaiului. ills Oi other yielded and tuet'
the-iudy to suy farewell, lie kissed
her and nuld 'Grace Murray, you have n
broken my bear*." A week or two
after ?bo was married to the Inferior
suitor. She uud Wesley did not moot
utfuiu for thirty-nine yearn. She long .
outlived her husband, and when in 1
London ahecatno to hear her son preach
in Moorflelus, she met ber venerable <
lover?lover still apparently, for tho in- >
terviqw is described as very affecting. ?
Henceforth they saw each other no '
more, and Wesley nover again men- i
tioncd her name. Through long yearo <
Gre.ee contiuuod a course of Christian <
usefulness, and lived and died eminent
ly respected. She lies inChiuly Church 1
yurd in Derbyshire. I
Undeterred by hhi former export- 1
enoes, in 1751 Wesley again ventured ?
upon au engagement which actually 1
resulted in marriage. Now, too, the j
lady wa? a widow, a Mm. Vazillo, her >
flr*t husband having been a merchant, '
who had left her a small iudependonoo. >
There was littlo in -her toodesorvo the
uttauhmuut of suoh a man, either in *
character or iutollout. She, too. lilto I
Graoo Murray, was of humblo birth, I
and, like hor, had b;en a maid servant >
Having durlug her widowhood joined ]
herself to the Mothodhite, she was I
naturally pleased and flattered with i
the attentions'of their renowned head. I
Chas. Wesley again interposed, but <
this timo in vaiu. It soon appeared 1
how ill-advised a union had beeu con- <
tracted, and after a ' few years of I
wretched married life, marked on hor
part by outrageous ill-temper, jealousy, <
violence, and evou troachery, which <
her husband on his sido bore with tho I
patienoo of a Socrates, the lady one
day took herself off and lived in a state ?
of soparation from him till her death.
"Non oam rollqui, non dlmlsi, non
revocabo?I did not forsako her, I did
not dismiss her, I will not recall her."
was tho husband's apt and pardonablo
exclamation when ho found her gone.
[ She takes her place in the foromost
rank of tho bad wives of eminent men,
worthy to bo classed with tho wedded
companions of Socrates, of Albert
?Duror, of George Herbort, of Riohard
Hoodor, she was the most vicious vixon
of thorn all.
It may bo imaginod, without doing
any injustice to him, that when hin
letters wore stolen, interpolated, and
forged by his wife, for the purpose of
injuring his oharactor, the grieving
spirit of the old prophet may some
times have said, "Grace Murray would
not have done this." At tho samo
timo wo must, in justice, say that
Wesley cannot bo wholly exonerated
from blame; for, sotting aside tho
question whether, after electing to
marry, ho was not bound to do more
for the comfortof his wife, ho certainly
gave ocoasion to her jealous temper by
his unwary conduct, and, most of all,
by his unaccountable fondness for a
certain Sarah Ryan, a quondam maid
servant like the others, who, although
sho was the wife of three living hus
bands, so won tho good opinion and
eonfldenco of Wesley by hor ostenta
tious devoutness that no actually ap
pointed hor matron of Kingswood
School, where he nocessarily paid fre
quent visits. No suspioion can really
attach, of course, to the fair fame of
one pure and unblemished as Wesley,
but it was difficult for a jealous wife to
think so. And assure Uy wo must say
of him, adopting a well-known phrase
of Mr. Freude'*, that " in bis relations
with women ho seemed to bo under a
fatal necessity of mistake."
ADDRESS TO COTTON GROWERS.
Strong Reasons Are diven tor Reduction of
Acreago TVs Year. .
To the Cotton Growers of America :
The Cotton Growers' Protective As
sociation of Amorica, in convention
assomblc'l at Memphis, Tonn., on this
' the 21st day of January, 18U?, again
come to you with an urgent appeal for
. co-operative action In plantiug tho
crop for 1890. It is a matter of extreme
congratulation that tho appeal made
to you last year was so generally re
' sponded to and that tho crop of 1895,
made upon tho diminished acreage,
bus had tho effect of greatly increasing
'" the price and bringing prosperity to
the country. The crop of 18l)o, though
' estimated to be 3,400,000 bales short of
the crop of 1894, was in the markets
' of the world worth more by nearly
; ,000,000. In the face of this result,
? to abandon the idea of diminished
aoreage would bo to sound tho retreat
in the face of victory. It is tho con
' census of opinion among tho best
' thinkers that of by any means tho cot
ton crop of America could be held
within tho limits of 7,000,000 bales per
annum for ten years, the people of
these Southern States would be the
, richest and most prosperous agricul
tural people in tho world. How :un
this bo brought about '/ The answer
'? is with you. Wo appeal to your solf
; interest and to your patriotism to do
' all In your power to keep down the
' production of tho staple. Do not
' abandon tho ground you have. won.
1 Fight on upon the lines laid down,
make the Cotton States self-support
> ing, put more, laud in clover and
! grasses for your hogs to run on,
diverosify your crops, and when you
have done all this the area devoted to
> cotton will yield more profitablo re
1 turns than if you sought to increase
the number of your bales.
It is felt by tn&inost thoughtful men
thatjWe -are ontcrlng upon a yoar of
1 gc<ntr uncertainties, and that even a
small cotton crop may fail to give
adequate returns for its production.
1 Tno muttcrings of a storm aro disturb*
ing the country and unsettling all busi
ness calculations. The prudont man
will trim his sails to meet it. With
tho commerce, of the country inter
rupted by war?anJ war may come?
cotton would bo unsalable except at
nominal prices. Every consideration,
then, of patriotism, of self-interest and
of rudenco dictates that you adhere
strictly to tho rulo of diminished
acreage Earnest men are earnostly
working to load you ami guido you
into prosperity. Do not let them
labor in vain, but cheerfully and hope
fully respond to thoir appeal.
In conclusion, we desire to say to
evory cotton grower, whether his crop
is 10 hales or 1000 bales, soo to it first
that your place is self-sustaining?and
we mean by this to bo sure you grow
on the farm an abundance of corn,
moat, hay, oats, peas, potatoes, etc.,
for ull tho peoplo on tho placo, both
white and colored. If the tenant will
not produoo theso artloles, soil them
to him, and you koop the monoy in
your own poekot, in plaeo of sending it
out of tho country. When you havo
donothis, or provided for it, grow what
cotton you can.
If evory farmer or planter in the
cotton-growing district will make this
hiB rulo of action, and livo up to it, it
will accomplish the results we ho much
desire, of making us all prosperous
and happy, whether our cotton, which
will bo a surplus crop, to make suro
first of a ohoap, home grown living for
all tho people, and all tho animals,
on the place, and then make what cot
ton you can.
Press this idoa on your neighbors
and friends; talk it in season and oat
of season, at home and abroad; In
fluence your papers to writo it up, and
keep it before the public?at least,
until after this year's cotton crop is
Remember, this is purely a labor of
love for the benoflt of all, and if orery
farmer will participate, and lend a
helping hand, by co-oporating in a
united and vigorous effort to redueo
tho si/ii of the cotton crop, and in
crease the homo-supply crop, immonse
benefit to all is obliged to be tho result.

REPLIES TO HIS CRITICS.
'lllman Detenus Hl? Speech in the Senate?
W II Apologize Wi?n His Facta Ar/> Dis
Washington, Fob. 14, 18U6
Pb tbo Editor ol Tbo World :
My uniform rulo hat? boon to troa
li'ltfelama with blleuce. I break that
ulo now for a purpose, nod that lb to
ihallonge those who nave found so
nuch to oundeuiu lu my recent speech
n the Senate to a trial bjforo the jury
if their readers, in which I can havo
it leant a show of justice. The New
Kork Times editorially terms mo " a
lltby baboon," tho Now York Evening
'ent "a pol itieal anarchist," The World
tsolf has used the word " blather
kite," the Philadelphia Record calls '
ue " the chieftain of anarchists " and
he Globe of St. Paul says: "This
el lew brings to the Sonate the unsavory
coord he made in his State, a ebar
icter tattooed with dishouesty."
These aro a few of the parliamentary
mil elegant phrases employed by tho
M>Uto and refined editors of some of
the leading uewspapers as applied to
nyself. Tuey havo not road my speech,
ihey dare not publlah It in full, and,
)asing their orltioistns upon a few
garbled extracts in which I used strong
auguage to express indignation and
souteiupt, they asked the people of the
:ountry to render a verdict against mo
is a coarse, brutal, ignorant blaok
All tho words and phrases whiob
>cour in the speech to whioh they take
ixcoptlon do not exceed a dozen. They
leltber add noi? take from the argu
ments and facts as presented. Not a
jingle one of them Is unparliamentary,
ind frequently, In tho same Senate,
languago as violent, as coarso and as
brutal has been uttered In the past by
a dozen men whoso names aro written
high in our country's history.
I f my lauguago was unparliamentary
and indecent, why did no Senator call
me to ordor V If the charges woro
untrue, why has no Senator answered
them, and why do my newspaper erltles
not even attempt to auswor them ? Is
It unparliamentary and indeceut to
toll the truth V Are wo sunk to that
low estate that falsehood and treachery
and official dishonesty cannot be men
tioned without calling down anavalau
cbo of abuse and slandor? What other
Senntors havo whispered among them
selves I havo spokon aloud and in plaiu
words. What a majority of tho people
of the country havo thought and felt
1 have uttered.
This is tho sum of mv offending, and
tho hirollng editors and reporters who
now dograae tho so-called freedom of
tho press to 60 despicable a lovel may
Hatter themselves that they creato and
control public opinion, but the thou
sands of lettors that havo poured In or.
mo from overy quartor of the Union,
mostly from tho North, and from men
engaged In overy pursuit in life, havo
given me assurances that tho scales
aro falling from the eyes of tho people
and that tho truth, bravely told, has,a
swoot and wholesomo sound. Tho
American people as a whole, tho
"groat common people," love the
truth, and tbey lovo their country.
They despiso traitors and thieves and
cowards. It is a large mass to move,
but tho leaven iB at work and tho
Ibsuo is joined, and tho result will bo
known on the day of election.
So far as I am individually concern
ed, and so far as my speech in concern
ed, I care nothing for the abuse heaped
on mo, and thank my critics for direct
ing attention to my utterances. When
my facts aud arguments have been dis
proved I will apologize. Until then
tloceDcy demands that men who abuse
me for speaking the-trutb should let
their readers see it aud judge for
themselves, or reserve the epithets for
men of their own kind who dread the
truth and love cowardice.
If there is no need of reform, reform
will not come. If I represent nothing
but ignorance and anarchy, why was!
oleoted Govornor of South Carolina
twice by such overwhelming majori
ties ? For four years, as executive,
fought and abused by corporations and
banks and their hireling newspapers,
why did my State send mo to the Son
ato by a vote of 131 out of a total of KiO
in tho General Assembly? During
these four years tho State advaucod iu
material growth and increase of tax
able values more rapidly than in any
previous period in its history. I spent
9500,000 in tho erection and equipment
of two of tho largest colleger for tho
industrial, technical nnd normal train
ing in tho South?ono for each sex.
And tho constitutional convention,
with which I hud a great deal to do,
fixed constitutional taxes so as to double
the free school fund ; tho saloons havo
boon banished from the State, while
three-fourths of tho people, if not
more, aro firm supporters of tho now
mothod of handling tho liquor traflic.
These facts, which aro history, cannot
be sneezed at nor obliterated. Anur
chists don't writo sueh history.
I havo nover Bhrunk from the lash
lng-i of newspaper scribbers in tho
areanaof State politics and will not
In- (in to do so iu the broader Bold to
which my commission from tho pcoplo
has transfeerred me. If it Is to be tho
fato of this great republic to sink to
tho level of Rome when tho Piuulorian
guards wero wont to put the emperor
ship up to tho highest bidder; if Con
gress is to become or remain the Cow
ardly tool and purchasable agent, of the
wealthy ; ii tho Federal judiciary aro
to undermine aud deutroy the constitu
tion, ?s forotold by Jefferson; if our
liberties aro to bo lost through suplno
ignorancoaed venality, I, as asjntinel
on tho watoh tower, holding a sacred
trust, cannot bo oharged with having
assisted my country to Its degradation
by giving a note of warning.
