FOK U. S. SENATOR.
Senator Latiiner Has Announced His
Candidacy for Kc-dcctiom-His Po?
sition Stated on Immigration.
Mr. Jas. A Hoyt in his correspon
dence to the News and Courier from
Columbia, says of the forthcoming
As forecasted in this correspondence
last week Senator Latimer, on his re
turn from Europe, has announced his
candidacy for re-election next summer
and has stated his position on the issue
of immigration. This position will be
construed as not favoring the present
means used in this State to induce im
migration and the Senator distinctly
states that be is not in favor of the
proposed line of immigrant steamers
between Triest and Charleston.
The Senator apprehends that the im
migration question will play an impor
tant part in the campaign next year
and in this he is undoubtedly correct.
The Farmers' Union, which is strong
. in the Senator,8 home county of Ander
son and that portion of the State, is
on record as opposing immigration and
this element represents considerable
sentiment of that nature. However,
there is on the other hand a distinct
sentiment favorable to the plan now in
operation to induse immigration and
there is not much doubt that this sen
timcnt will have a representative in
the campaign for the seat ocuupicd by
Senator Latimer. Of course the most
prominently identified man in the State
with the immigration issue is former
Governor Heyward, on whose recom
mendation to the Legislature the bu
reau of immigration was established and
who has even since he left the Govern
or's office, taken an active part in the
elforts to secui'e the steamship line to
Charleston. That he should be called
on to enter the race on this platform is
quite natural, but it is not likely that
the former Governor can be induced to
There has recently been such a large
crop of candidates that it is not possible
to place all of them with respect to the
immigration issue. No one yet knows
what are the views on this subject of
Col. J. J. Dargan, of the Gen. Thomas
Sumter Memorial Academy at State
burg, in Sumter County, S. C. nor has
Prof. John G. Clinkscalcs, of Wofford
college, or Hon. C. C. Simms, of Barn
well, defined their respective views on
this vital topic. Even the position
of Hon, D. S. Henderson, understood
to be a candidate, i3 not announced, for
the simple reason that Mr. Henderson,
has not had the opportunity to express
himself. But among the other Senato
rial possibilities the position of Col.
George Johnson is known, for at a
meeting held last winter at the Coionial
Hotel, in this city, Col. Johnson ex
pressed hinself as favoring immigra
lion in a speech which was the soul not
only of logic and eloquence, hut of
brevity. The reason for immigration
have not been better stated than by
Col. Johnstone that night. It would
be a peculiar coincidence if Col. John
stone and Senator Latimcr should de
bate this issue over the Stale. Mr.
Latimcr first came into the public eye
by defeating Col. Johnstone for re-elec
tion to Congress from the 3rd district

That Comical Rascal, Silly Hilly.
Laughter promotes health and vitality
by stimulating our entire system. One
full dose of "The Funny Fellows of
New York" as presented by the inli
mitable comedian John Thompsom,
will do a person more good than 100
bottles of the best known tonic.
If there is such a thing as one of the
funny fellows being the funniest, the
prize, as has often been remarked,
should go to "Silly Hilly."
Everything that Billy does is comical,
his look, his dress, his manner of speak
ing, his actions, all are comical.
Silly Hilly is a very fine musician;
his solo on the Lilinutiun Violin, on
which he plays the "Carnival of of
Vonice," with variations, is so well
rendered that only a person with a
musical education can fully appreciate
the skillful manner in which he handles

Another surprise for the audience is
whon he introduces a plicated piece of
paper which lie calls a "Pro-to-fo-to-in
