LAURENS, S. C, Aug. 23. 1905.
THE OLD WAY BEST.
Senator Tillman has been trying to
play politics decently. He has been
speaking without indulgence in a great
deal of demigogic appeal. He has only
now and then resorted to false state
ments '.in the past few weeks. The
lapses were perhaps from force of habit
rather than intention. Consequently
his speeches have aroused no enthusiasm.
Moreover, the Senator has been writing
for the newspapers. He has confined
himself to the employment in his com
munications, also of respectful and
fair words. He has been in a discus
sion with Dr. George B. Cromer of
Newberry. The latter has completely
outclassed him. The Senator has not
been able to hold his own.
As long as the Senator arouses preju
dice, as long as he stops at nothing,
charges good men with "incipient cor
ruption" and slightly regards limita
tions that usually govern sincere and
honorable men in public discussions he
has no equal in South Carolina on the
stump. It seems unfair to expect Sen
ator Tillman to refrain from ruffian lan
guage when he speaks and writes. He
makes such a poor, pitiful show of him
self when he is trying to be good. The
Senator should round out his career by
blackguarding and denouncing honest
men and whining that he is "lied upon"
by the newspapers.
He has nothing to gain from the
friends of Wade Hampton, whom he
caused to be howled down in Aiken, his
name will forever be remembered with
bitterness by them and he can't win
his way into the affections of those in
Laurens whose fathers he caused to be
insulted by their own friends.
No, Senator Tillman fails, miserably
fails, in the role of a high-minded and
dignified statesman. Let him issue an
other manifesto. Let him sow seeds
of hate. Let him teach one part of the
people to turn with fury on the other.
Oh, he is a master of that black art.
It made him governor. It made him
governor again. Then it elected him
Senator over a gallant old soldier of the
Confederacy who is still stumping
arounding on one leg. He is in high
place. lie eats of the fat of the land.
Let him stand to his old ways and
engage in his old tricks and not try to
feebly imitate. First thihg he knows,
some one of his former apt pupils will
step in and kick him out of the Senate
while he is practicing the manners of
But, for Heaven's sake, won't he re
frain from all this canting talk about the
behavior of his Spartanburg followers?
It is too much to sec this man, who ac
cepted whiskey samples and carried
them home and used them and then
boasted of it, holding up his hands in
counterfeit disgust because poor old
Disperser Ferguson, a humble common
man, not smart and shrewd and clever
as is the Senator, but wearing on his
breast the cross that tells of service
more honorable than Tillman ever did
for South Carolina, did the same thing
accepted samples. It is too much. If
the father of the Dispensary, the gov
ernor of the State, a great and good
man, could accept samples without
shame, is it any wouder that, the poor,
humble, ignorant cusses and hangers on
around these "moral" saloons in Spar
tanburg should have trangresscd a lit
tle farther and sold the samples and
committed other little sins? There's
Blease?he's probably a pretty hard
citizen ?but he has stood by his gang.
He hasn't gone back on his friends.
His friends are Tillman's friends ?
1 ?'though of course Tillman has thousands
of others who are as good men as the
State has and who have been fooled.
But those Spartanburg creatures that
loafed in the beer pens and whom
Blease, it is said, was trying to "put
next," why they are the kind that
"howled down" the Antis?that made
Ben Tillman! As for Blease, he is at
least not setting up that this foul Dis
pensary is a holy thing, an improver of
public morals; if he is, he is doing it in
a mighty lame way. Tillman would ap
pear better if he followed Blease or
locked arms with him and stuck to the
Senator Tillman never discovered
that anything was wrong in the Dis
pensary until the whole world knew it.
Even in 1900 when Tillman spoke
throughout the State ?long after Dan
Miles had left the Board of Control be
cause it smelled so of rottenness?the
Dispensary received only praise from
its fond papa.
If Ben Tillman will continue to abuse
the Antis" he will stay in the Senate
perhaps. Otherwise he may he beaten
some time. He will need those Spar
tanburg Dispensary toughs.
Mr. Wess Donnon of Tylersville was
in the city on Thursday and following
hit. nuggy were three fine mule colts.
The colts were the subject of much
favorable comment and a bystander re
marked to Tub Advertiser reporter
that that was an industry that his pa
per should advocate. The Advertiser
has always advocated raising every
thing that is used on the farm and some
thing to sell too where practicable, and
and among the things enunerated are
We advocate raising horse colts like
wise, but our preference is mule colts;
mules are ready for service a year be
fore horses are, a large number of
horse colts turnout to be only ordinary
horses, while practically all home raised
mules are good, and where you have
three or four in a bunch it does not
cost much more to raise them than it
costs to raise so many sheep.
LYON AND CHRISTENSEN.
Messrs. Lyon and Christensen did
not after all prove in Spartanburg tbat
any large sum of money had been
stolen or misappropriated by persons
connected with the Dispensary. The
investigation had to do with petty graft
and grafters. The sum of money in
volved in the now notorious newspaper
transaction was picayune. The testi
mony of bribes given and recleved for
appointments of dispensers was small
and mean bribery. No evidence of a
theft respectable in proportions or of
robbery worthy of other than a grovel
ing and slow-witted villian was brought
to light. True, if appointments habit
ually have been purchased in Spartan
burg, that the purchasers would not
hesitate to recoup themselves by abus
ing the regulations as to sales. A man
who is taxed $400 before he is elected
dispenser may be expected to conduct a
blind tiger under the protection of his
dispensary. At the same time, the in
dividual offenses, we say, which have
brought shame to the Dispensary sys
tem in Spartanburg were small.
But they were numerous. They were
enough to disclose the existence of a
"system." Messrs. Lyon and Christen
sen proved the large and important fact
of an atmosphere of corruption and
venality in Spartanburg, which the Dis
pensary has created. The reports of
the investigation have discovered to the
public a considerable group of persons
uncommonly depraved, without self-re
spect and with their sense of discrim
ination between honesty and dishonesty
seared. It included drunkards, bribers,
bribe-takers, bullies, loud and profane
swearers and others given to vice, the
mention of which is never edifying, j
Seldom arc so many persons of the un
clean and repulsive sort forced upon
the disgusted attention of South Caro
linians at the same time as it was the
task of Messrs. Lyon and Christensen
to drag from the Dispensary slums.
What these two young gentlemen have
done ought to be fully understood. The
work cut out for them was both nasty
and dangerous. It was such that any
healthy-minded man would gladly have
avoided. Mingling even in an official
way with the vile creatures of the
Spartanburg Dispensary crew must
have been sickening, but more than
that, it invited a peril. Among the
subjects for investigation were more
than one of the kind that carry pistols
and brass "knucks," who have no re
gard for peace or for the principles of
fair fighting, which gentlemen accept.
It is a lame and impotent conclusion
for a man of decency and education
and character to be shot in the back by
a degraded and brutish criminal, yet it
was just such a fate as these gentle
men in the performance of their duty
dared. It was their good fortune to es
caj>e any serious misadventure.
The duty was well worth the doing,
worth the expentiture of time and en
ergy, and worth the illustration of high
courage. It has demonstrated to the
people of South Carolina that this Dis
pensary system is the breeder of all
foul moral diseases. It has exhibited it
as attracting to and enmeshing a num
ber of individuals in a criminal circle
where vice is absolute and no law save
that of the "gang" is recognized. It
entrenched Tn one of the most enlight
ened cities of the State, in a county
which has always led in moral and civic
progress, and in which the white peo
ple have been in so large majority that
politics have at no time suffered the
taint frequently due to the presence of
the negro. How the Dispensary system
may implant a cancerous germ in the
healthiest parts of the commonwealth,
and how it may provide the stimulus to
its noxious growth has been made plain
to the people of the State. It is left
for them to cut away the evil thing or
leave it to its further deadly increase.
Messrs. Lyon and Christensen have ful
filled their contract.

Isaacson and Moses were rivil cloth
iers, who kept shops situated in the
same street and opposite each other. It
was their frequent practice to stand at
their shop doors and solicit the custom
of passers-by and occasionally irritate
each other by personal remarks.
One morning Moses shouted to Isaac
son: "Go in, you great booby, and take
that ugly face wid you. You might as
well stick a donkey at the door."
Isaacson replied: "I did that one day

Hyomei a trial, and I am happyto say
that it entirely cured me, and I have

Although many of tho cleverest ac
tressei the world has known have es
sayed tlie part, they have, with few
exceptions, fulied In It.
liven Sarah Slddons, probably tho
greatest tragic actress of all time, was
o failure as Hamlet, largely owing to
the nondescript nature of her garments,
which were neither masculine nor femi
nine and Willen made It almost Impos
sible to forget that her Handel was a
woman and not a man, nays London
Charlotte Cushmau wns perhaps tho
most brilliant player of male parts of
her or, Indeed, of any other generation.
She was equally brilliant and convinc
ing as Homeo, Cardinal Wolsey or
Claude Melnotte, but when she made
the crucial experiment of playing the
melancholy Dane even she prov*ed
unequal to the task. In fact, her Ham
let was so badly received In Dublin
thst she there and then mndc up her
mind never to play It again.
And yet her Homeo was such a tri
umph of acting that .Tames Sheridan
Kuowlea, the great dramatist and crit
ic, was completely carried nway by It.
Of her acting of the passage where Ho
meo flings himself upon the ground,
"taking the measure of nn unmado
grave," be says: "It was a scene of top
most passion, not ?1 undated passion;
no SUch thing-real, palpably renl. The
genuine heart storm was on In Its wild
est fullness of fury, and I listened ami
gar.ed and held my breath, while my
blood ran hot and cold. I am sure It
must have been the case with every
one In the house, but I was all ab
sorbed In Homeo till a thunder of ap
plause recalled me to myself."
And of her assumption of the difficult
part of Claude Melnotto In "The Lady
of Lyons" Justin McCarthy says: "I
have seen Claude Melnotte played by
many great actors, from Macready to
Irving, but Miss Coshman cellpsed
them all. Hhe created for me the ouly
human, the only possible and the only
endurable Claude Melnotte I have ever
Miss Julia Seaman, a once popular
actress, was so severely criticised when
she played Hamlet some years ago that
she turned round on her critics and an
nailed them In a very vigorous manner.
The late Miss Marriott, who had one of
the most beautiful voices ever heard on
any stage, wo? more fortunate, al
though It was one of her least success
ful assumptions, and In the fifties an
American actress, Miss Percy Knowles,
made such an unfortunate exhibition
of herself as the melancholy one that a
country manager actually Issued a no
tice warning his patrons against going
to see her.
Ellen 'Free (Mrs. Charles Kean) was
the Qrst to put on Hamlet's doublet
and hose; Mrs. Glover won Edmund
Kean's approval by her playing of the
pnrt, and Mine. Sarah Bernhardt gave
a picturesque nnd clever rendering of
Hamlet, although It was not to be com
pared with many of her brilliant as
Charlotto Crampton was noted for
her clever acting of masculine parts,
which woidd have been even more con
vincing If she had not l>een such a tiny
woman. "There Is a woman," Mac
ready once said, referring to her, "who
two Inches taller." She wns such a
magnificent swordswoman that few
men cared to try their skill against her
on the stage, and she was undoubtedly
a genius In her way, with a courage
commensurate with her skill.
Hhe wos one of the finest personators
of Richard HI. ever seen on the stage,
her Bhyloek was among the most bril
liant pieces of acting In her day, and
she was almost equally clever as Ingo.
Homeo and Don Caesar de Hazan, and
yet when Charlotte Crampton chal
lenged criticism with Hamlet she fail
ed ns signally as her rival, Charlotte
Cushmon, had done.
Probably tho most successful of all
lady Hamlets was Anna Dickinson,
who made considerable reputation ns
Macbeth and Clnudo Melnotto. "A
number of women have tried Hamlet,"
she snld. "None, I believe, with any
success. Yet. In my opinion, tbo char
acter of Hamlet Is eminently suited for
a woman's copnbllltles. Hnmlet was
very young -a mere college boy, In
fact. Resides, a flno actress Is more
likely to bring out the wonderful wo
manlike delicacy of Hamlet's charac
