TILLMAN, BLEASE AND MANNING.
Why is it that Senator Tillman, when
ever he is asked about his attitude to
wards Mr. Blcase, lauches into a senti
mental discussion about voting for men
whose lives are upright and clean?
In the absence of allegation to the
contrary, it is taken for granted that
every man's private life is what it
should be. In this pending campaign
for Governor, no charges have been
made against any man's private life.
So far as the public is informed, each
of the eight candidates is a saint. If
Senator Tillman knows aught against
any, why doesn't he say it? Why does
he insinuate? Why lecture on this sub
ject whenever Blease's name is called?
as he did at Lexington and at Laurens?
He also lectures against voting for a
"straddler" Who is his "straridler?"
Does he mean Mr. Blease? It is at the
mention of Mr. Blease's name by some
man in the crowd that the Senator does
this stunt. But Mr. Blease is no "strad
Meanwhile, nothing is clearei than
that the Senator is trying to defeat Mr.
Blcase. He says that opponents of the
Raysor-Manning bill should be left at
home. Mr. Blease is one of these oppo
nents. Therefore- Well, finish the
sentence, you who follow Tollman's ad
Openly and everywhere it is said that
Senator Tillman wishes Mr. Manning
elected. The Senator doe.s not dispute
it?though he has not admitted it in so
many words. So long as the prevailing
impression remains, the Senator's influ
ence will go for Manning. This the
Senator knows, and to this the Sena
Why is Senator Tillman a Manning
man? Simply because the only thing
that the Senator lacks is the friendship
of the people of whom Mr. Maiming is
a representative. Mr. Manning is an
excellent type of all that has since 1885
antagonized B. It. Tillman. Tillman
goes back to the Senate without oppo
sition. There is nothing more for him
to get out of his former followers.
But what would not Senator Tillman
give to be received into full fellowship
with the people of whom Manning was
one in the days of factionalism? If the
Senator could gain the respect now of
the "old Antis" by electing one of their
most respectable young men Governor,
he would be the leader of all the peo
ple?he would be loved by everybody in
the State, and what man does not crave
the affection of his people?
We do not know whether or not the
"old Antis" are going to forgive Till
man because be hugs Manning to his
bosom, so to speak, but of this we are
sure: the former Tillmanitcs are for
the most part going to follow Tillman,
even if be shall deliver them into the
hand of the Amalekites ?which is to
say, the anti-Tilbnanites. All of which
is a pleasant reflection.
TROLLEY LINES COMING.
Very soon all the important towns in
Upper South Carolina will be connected
by trolley lines. By "very soon," we
mean ten or twenty years. Anderson's
line is prosperous and it is to be ex
tended to Belton and Spartanburg's
line already extends eight or ten miles
into the country, and to mill villages.
After a few years, the franchises
will be secured by Northern capitalists
and, if we don't look sharp, the trolley
business will be owned by outsiders.
The Greenville and Spartanburg lines
are now owned by outsiders. Local
people own the Anderson line.
We would like to see Laur.ens have a
trolley lific and we would like to sec it
owned and operated by home people.
UNITE THE TOWNS.
The automobilists of Laurens should
form themselves into a good roads assor
ciation and take measures to have a
road built from Clinton to Laurens.
The two towns, Clinton and Laurens,
should each contribute the money to
build a mile or two of a macadamized
road, and the people along the road
might perhaps contribute a little. In
the course of a few years, two or three,
the road would be completed and the
expense would hardly be felt.

When the roadside weeds are wilting
And the skies sunburned and brassy,
Then I know the birds are lilting,
Then I know a country lassie
Sings along a country highway
Where the maple trees arch over,
Trips along a woodland byway
Sweet with breath of purple clover.
And buds come out of their hiding,
And birds sing out of the shadow,
And the cricket where 'tis hiding
Sends its call across the meadow,
And her lips are like a cherry,
And her throat is like the thrushes
In the morning making merry
By the stream's side in the rushes.
And her foot, so softly pressing
On the tender roadside grasses,
Is as soft as the caressing
Of the south wind as it passes,
And her locks are star-dust drifting
In a halo and a glory,
And her eyes down-drooped or lifting
Are as sweet as love's own story.
Do you wonder that the wilting
Of the weeds along the byway
Sets me longing for the lilting
Of a song adown a highway
Where a country maid is going,
And where maple trees are over,
And where gentle breezes blowing
Bring the breath of purple clover?

Reminiscences of the Oldest Editor in the
State as Told at the Isle of Palms.
Mr. President and Members of the South
Carolina Press Association:.
As a sort of modern Methuselah, or if
not such a prototype, at least one of
the older, if not the oldest member of
your body, I have been requested to
give some personal reminiscences of the
I newspaper press of South Carolina since
my connection with it. This will cover
a period of nearly fifty-seven years,
though my first connection with the
press of the State was in a very hum
ble capacity, that of pvintor's "devil"
and boy of all work; and the printing
office was my alma mater.
I am not unmindful of the fact that
such a theme as 1 have undertaken to
detail is not in keeping with the pro
gressive spirit of the age, which points
forward, not backward; yet, some of us
at least who have already reached the
shades of life, feel a just, and I trust a
commendable pride in the dear old days
of the past, with ibi joys and its sor
rows, its successes and reverses. Nor
do 1 feel altogether lonesome in my
"gray temples" at seventy-four, as I
think I discern before me, without mi
croscopic aid, some silver threads among
the once darker or perhaps redder hues.
(No insinuations as to lady membei's
Hut as to my recollections regarding
the press of the Slate, Mr. President, I
scarcely know where, when, or how to
begin. If I may be pardoned for an il
lusion personal to myself, will say that
my connection with the newspaper press
of South Carolina, in a proprietary and
editorial relation, began mere than
forty-three years ago, though connected
in other capacities for several years
prior to that time. Of the forty-three
years alluded to, however, four years
should bo deduced, during which time I
served my State and country as a Con
In the year 1815), which is as far back
as my recollection runs in this connec
tion, if memory serves me correctly
there was a weekly newspaper publish
ed in every county (then District.) north
and west of Columbia. In some of the
counties, south and east of that city, I
think there were none. In none of these
was there a machine or power press?
the old Washington hand press being
the sole reliance, two hundred and
forty or fifty sheets (called a "token")
per hour being its full average capacity,
and that number was regarded rather
swift press work. It is quite different
now, in this age of steam and electric
power, when a Webb perfecting press
and others have a capacity of from
thirty to forty thousand sheets per
Even the daily papers of Charleston
and Columbia were printed by hand
power until some time in 1850, or '61,
when steam was first applied to a print
ing press in the former city, I think by
the Courier, then one of the leading
daily papers of the State, and perhaps
The electric telegraph preceded the
application of steam to the printing
press in this State about three years, its
first introduction and use as a means of
transmitting intelligence to the press
was adopted by the Charleston dailies
some time in the latter part of 1847 or
early in 1848. This, of course, was be
fore my connection with the Slate press,
but I have seen or heard the fact
Hut, even before the introduction of
the telegraph in Charleston and Colum
bia, and its adoption by the press, there
was much industry and enterprise in
news gathering manifested, when the
method adopted to obtain it was more
expensive Hum at present, according to
space, as the following single instance
At the breaking out of the Mexican
war, early in 1817, it required seven
days for the transmission of the regular
mail between New Orleans and Now
York, and the telegraph line extended
then only as far South as Richmond,
Va. To obtain the earliest news from
the seat of war in advance of the regu
lar mail facilities, the management of
the Charleston Courier, in conjunction
with some New York journal, a "pony
express" was established, and went at
once into operation between Montgom
ery, Ala., a distance of one hundred
and fifty miles. It was between these
points that the regular mail was out
stripped, it requiring the mail coach
thirty-six hours to travel the distance.
The pony express covered the distance
in twelve hours, overtaking the previ
ous day's mail.
So by this enterprise the first intelli
gence from the land of the Montezumas
was received and published in the City
of Charleston exclusively, presumably
in the Courier, twenty-four hours in
advance of the United States mail,
about the last of March, 1847.
The pony mail was limited in weight
to not less than three nor more than
five pounds of matter; and for each suc
cessful trip the contractor was paid
seven hundred and fifty dollars, and a
failure, if is said, rarely occurred. Sev
eral horses were killed, and one rider
lost his life.
(I am indebted to a neat little volume
entitled, "The Newspaper Press of
Charleston,"by William L. King, pub
lished in 1872, for the fact'i therein
given of this bold piece of jo ji naliftic
enterprise; though I had heard It de
tailed some years before the date of the
publication referred to.)
At time of my earliest recollection as
to the means of getting news for the
press, the old stage coach, with an av
erage of four miles per hour, was the
chief reliance, especially of the country
weekly. There was then but one rail
road in the State the South Carolina,
between Charleston and Hamburg, with
a branch road from Branchvlllo to Co
lumbia, Prom the latter city, stage
lines penolrated the country in different
directions, and were the only mode of
public conveyance, and transmissions of
the mails, supplemented of course in
the latter service by the horso mail, or
the star route. Some lime in the mid
dle fifties and early sixties the Colum
bia and Charlotte, (he Creenvillo and
Columbia, the Laurens and Spartanburg
and Union railroads were all completed.
This gave the upper tier of counties
better mail and travelling facilities.
At this time, however, as compared
with the speed of railroads of (he pres
ent day, these roads might have boon
correctly designated as "slowcoaches,"
as twenty miles per hour whb regarded
fast time. Now, unless a speed of
forty-five or fifty miles per hour is
made, the average passenger>of swift
ideas becomes somewhat impatient, and
almost ready to say, "I'd just as well
get out and walk," while the enterpris
ing business community is by no means
contented unless the mails arrive twice
or thrice daily, to say nothing of R. F.
I), routes that drop in at all hours.
And unless the reader of dailies, print
ed hundred of miles away, gets his pa
per at the early breakfast table ho is
ready to bless out the whole newspaper
fraternity, the entire postal service and
all railroads between New York and
San Francisco, not to mention points
near home. Had such impationt reader
lived in the days when leading city dai
lies displayed at the heads of their for
eign news column, in conspicuous capi
tals, "Arrival of Steamship America,
Fourteen Days Later from Europe,"
perhaps he would be willing to cultivate
more tolerance. Newspapers of the
present day get news across the water,
or rather under it, in fourteen minutes.
When the Charleston papers could be
read thirty-six or forty-eight hours af
ter publication, two hundred miles dis
tant, most people were satisfied with
the lateness and freshness of its news.
Now they receive it within six or eight
hours after uublication at even a
greater distance, and many are yet not

Barnwell Rhett, Jr., W. R. Taber, edi
tors, and the Evening News, Col. John
Cuningham, editor. These were strong,
ably conducted and influential journals.
In Columbia the Daily South Carolinian
was published by Johnson & Cavis, W.
B. Johnson, editor; the Palmetto State
Banner, by I. C. Morgan, and the illus
trated Family Friend, by Stuart Adair
Godman. The last two journals were
weeklies, but excellent papers. Dr.
R. W. Gibbes subsequently bought the
Carolinian from Johnson & Cavis and
became its editor. All these papers,
both of Charleston and Columbia, were
first-class, both as to editorial ability
and typographical execution.
The same may be said of the country

Time and circumstances permitting, I
perhaps could have gone more into de
tail regarding my recollection of the
press of the State during the decade
from 1850 to 1861; but what I have
