Many changes are noticeable, it is
true, during the few years since we
lived and wrought and wandered over
these places, but the familiar faces,
the pleasant homes, the kind hospitali
ty, call up memories of former experi
ences which almost inspire a wish to
live again one's pas! life. In the homes
of .lohn Culbertson, s. M. Cooper, II.
Y. Fuller. Prof. .1. B. Watkius. Robert
Coleinan, and others on the Journey
we were made to feel that life is not
simply a bundle of cores and worries,
but eminently worth the living. The
more we learn the "netter do we know
that the character of life is not the
product of fate but Of purpose any
way. We stopped a while at Turkey
Creek church among fwhoso people
we used to mingle and worship. The
old church house has been replaced
by a new and better one. but the shady
oaks and other familiar situations still
remind us of Revs. Hurts and Martin,
and of the Agnews, Barmores, McGees,
Rasors, and others whose voices min
gled in song, prayer, and sermon.

should be mentioned our own ,T. B.

UNCLE JOE GIBSON
ON SENATOR TILLMAN
Old Xegro Who Can Command the
Senator to "Shot Up Cussla"
and He Stops.
Richard Carrol!. the well known
negro educator and preacher contri
butes the following story to the Co
1 attended tho Sunday school con
vention of the Mt. Canaan association
at Bland Baptist church, between
Trenton and Johnston. Soon after I
had finished my speech 1 met Joe Oib
Bon, a colored man. who has lived
with Senator Tillman 36 years. Uncle
Joe is <><? years old and possesses con
siderable intelligence and refinement.
Me was neatly dressed and the side
heard which he wore was in keeping
with a style peculiarly his own. He
drove one of Senat >r Tillman's mules
to a neat buggy. But he said that he
could have driven one of the horses
if he had so desired. He said also that
what belongs to Senator Tillman be
longs to him. When 1 came upon Un
cle Joe he was lecturing the crowd
about, him on the excellent qualities
of Senator Tillman. I asked Uncle
Joe if he did not think It was time he
was leaving Senator Tillman. He an
swered. "For what, to go where, There
Is no place on earth better than Mr.
Tillman's home. None better for me
than hebben." "Does Senator Tillman
curse much?" was asked the old man.
"Yes. but he don't cuss me: and when
he .nils to cussin' around me l ken
stop him. He hears me. All 1 have
lo say to him is 'Von shet up dat cus
sin' now.Well," said 1. "what is
your occupation oil the senator's
place?" "[ tens to seator's business,
an' I tells you right now. Senator Till
man can't get no white man to ten to
his business like 1 do; an' you nor no
other man. white or black, can't come
thar an' git nothin' from Senator Till
man 'less he come in an' through by
me. He sens everybody to me."
"Did Senator Tillman ever knock
you?" "No. lawd." said Uncle Joe.
"Ho never knock me hIsself, and thar
ain't no nigger nor white man dat dare
put his hand on me while de senator
lives; an' Mr. Tillman's wife is de lies'
woman in do United States." "How
does his son treat you? Did he ever
knock you?" "He never put his ban'
on me senc.e he was born. I raised
him, and knocked him many times he
'served It; but he never knocked me.
Don't yer know dat Senator Tillman is
as much a gentleman as any white man
you know?" "How does lie treat other
colored people on his place?Preat
em like he treat me. He cuss at 'em
sometime, but his cussin' ain't nothin';
he ain't nothin' but mout'." ? Don't
you think you had better go some
where else and live now?" "Does you
think 1 is a fool? Mine you. Rev.
Carroll, Senator Tillman gives you a
cow one time, an' he wouldn't er done
so if I hadn't-ter agreed. All' you got
a good brekfus at our home de furst
morilln'. Now yer wants me to lOVO
him. I'se gwine to tell him dat you
ain't as good a lien as you make out.
How could I do thout him and he do
thout me? I will die today lor him,
an' he wud die for me."
About this lime Rev. (Jeorge Mor
gan, who belonged to ex-Gov. Pickcns,
and who is about 70 years old. another
dignified, high-toned and aristocratic
colored man with intelligence, came in
the ring to tell something about C.ov.
IMckens and his family. He told how
he was one of the pallbearers for C.ov.
Pickcns and his wife, and how kind
he was to "his niggers." As Rev. Mor
gan told of Mr. IMckens be wen*. He
said "Richard Carroll, you live in Co
lumbia, and if you want a picture of
my boss you see Dr. Butler, who prac
tices medicine in Columbia."
Uncle Joe at this point got angry
and walked away, and said. "I don't
keer who yer boss was. he didn't treat
you no better then 1 was treated."
This was a very interesting conversa
tion to me. 1 have made live or si\
visits to Senator Tillman's home in the
last 20 years, and have always found
Undo Joe al his post of duty. One
would think from Senator Tillman's
abuse of negroes on the stump and
elsewhere thai lie is mean to negroes.
But Uncle Joe pul it right when he
said. "Rev. Carroll. Senator Tillman
makes dein speeches jes' for fun. He
talks dat way jes' 'cause some people
likes to hear him."

Measured by the hard and fast ruh?
of absolute consistency on the liquor
issue, or any other issue, there Is no
candidate for governor that could
show an unvaried record.
Mr. Featherstpne, when a candi
date for governor in 1898, advocated
Statt? prohibition ami opposed the
state dispensary. He opposed the
State dispensary as long as it exist
ed which is something to bis credit,
at least -but witli thousands of other
prohibitionists he supported the local
option idea and the local option can
didate in l'JUO and 1!>()7 as the means
of destroying the State dispensary. |
Mr. Richards was an ardent and
; persistent advocate of the State dis
pensary, against both prohibition and j
local option, but in the dying days of j
the State dispensary supported pro- j
hibition in order to defeat local op.
; tlon. After the death of the dispensary
he became an advocate of prohibit ion ;
and has been at least consistent in
never supporting local option, ex
cept that he voted for the BrlCS bill.
In so doing he was inconsistent with
his present attitude, favoring State
prohibition, and opposing local op
Mr. McLeod, both as a member of
', the house and the senate, supported |
the state dispensary. In 1906 as a
member of the senate, he voted for
cation bill, which wa substituted in
that body for the Morgan local op
tion bill, to which it was antagonistic,
avowedly and logically. During the
campaign of 1906, Mr. McLeod, an
unopposed candidate for lieutenant
governor, was understood to he in
favor of preserving the State dispen
sary, ami opposed to local option. Yet
in announcing his candidacy for gov
ernor this year Mr. McLeod came out
strongly for local option.
Mr. Illease was a thick and-thin
supporter of the State dispensary all
its life and made the most resource
ful and effective light in Die senate
against the Carey-Cothran bill, which
was lo seal the doom of the dispen
sary by the institution of local option.
Now Mr. 131 ease is a local optionist,
going even further in his advocacy oi
options than the Carey-Cothran law
Mr. Hyatt, though he says he was
born a prohibitionist, in 1900 support
ed the State dispensary and its candi
date for governor.
What difference does it make
; Times change, conditions change,
and men who think must change with
them. John C. Calhoun supported
protection and opposed protection at
different times under different condi
tions. Even so steadfast a statesman
as Martin F. Ansel ran for governor
as an ardent advocate of the State
dispensary in 1902 and then turned
around and ran as a local optionist
in 1906. His position in 1902 did not
deter local optlonists from supporting
him four years later.
As a matter of fact, having vainly
tried to destroy the state dispensary
by a straight light for State p ohibi
tlon, the prohibit ionists of South
Carolina, with few exceptions, voted
for local option candidates in 1906.
The abolition of the state dispensary
was secured in 1907. The prohibi
tionists were th .. free to light again
for State prohibition. In his really
masterful speech during the debate
on the Carey-Cothran bill in 1907, Mr.
Carey plainly declared that he was a
prohibitionist, that he was support
ing local option as a means to an
end and that when that end was ac
complished he expected to tight for
State prohibition. lie represented the
views of the majority of prohibition
ists in the State.
on the other hand, Mr. Richards,
at the same time as plainly defined
Iiis attitude. After the abolition of
the Stati' dispensary and its elimina
tion from the politics of the State as
an issue, the former supporters of
that system were compelled to take
either prohibition or local option
stands, or remain mute observers of
public affairs. Mr. Richards took pro
hibition: Mr. Illease took local op
tion. No one thinks the less of either
of t hem for so doing.
All of which has little or nothing
to do with the selection of the gov
! emor in DUO. Vet if one candidate
