Washington, April ?C. Senator
Smith's sobriquet of "Gailling Gun"
has been slightly modified Ii*')?1. I
think this is largely due to the fact
thai the Hon. Tom Pence, of North
Carolina, does not know the differ
ence between a galtling gun and a
cyclone. I in t except for the name
the Hon. Tom. or "Governor Pence,"
as he used to be known, is not re
sponsible for the following story in
the Washington Times this afternoon:
"Senator Smith, of South Caroli
na, hiis gained a Sobriquet. He is
called "Cyclone Smith.' This is he
cause of Ills cyclonic delivery in de.
hale. He can speak faster than any
man in the senate.
"His lirst real debate came yester
day when he attacked the attorney
general because of Hie "cotton trust"
probe instituted by the department
of justice. The South Carolinian is
a cotton expert. lie knows the bus

the frabric on the store shelf, lie or

"This fund of cotton knowledge was
used to overwhelm the senate yester
day. For nearly two hours the senator
spoke and 10 relays of stenographers
were necessary to catch his remarks.
Not a not did lie use. All the torrent
of talk seomed to rise spontaneously
and the deluge was complete.
"Withal, Senator Smith spoke to
good effect for a HOW senator. He
held the attention of more Republican
senators during his addres: 1'iUlll many
of Iiis Democratic associates do when
they rise to address the senate. He
did more. He baited Senator Aldrich
until that leader rose to defend the
tariff from the South Carolinian's on
slaught. That was how vigorously the
attack was made.
"Senator Smith is not exactly of
the tire eating type, but lie borders
closely on it. It is suggested that a
little more senate training will tem
per him somewhat and thai lie is
therefore destined to become a force
