I BIoa.se? Thiubs Democrats Have
J Golden Opportunity in 1912 if They
Act Wisely and Conservntively.
I Senator Tillman was in Columbia
> yesterday to attend the meeting of
< the Winthrop college board of trustees
He talked about national politics.
Uio prospects of the Democratic and
Republican party, said Joe Bailey was
;ho smartest man in Washington,
gave his views on the tariff and tho
i chances of reciprocity parsing tho
Senate, talked about his health and
tho election of 101 'J, commented upon
the Democratic presidential possibil
ities and gave his definite opinion of
"What do you think of Joe Bailey?"
"Oh. Bailey got Into a pit and wont
off hall-cocked. In my opinion, ho
is the ablest man in Washington and
one of the smartest I evor knew in
national politics," be replied.
He added that Bailey had split open
His own head and with his own hatchet
-and that "ho did come back."
"What do you think of Qov. Blease?"
s tie was asked.
Opinion of Governor.
"I expressed my opinion of him a
long time ago. He has disappointed
me somewhat. He has not managed
to keep his poise with all the nagging
he has received at the bands of the
press," was the answer of the sena
Senator Tillman flefended Oov.

it was a case of an accumulation of
meritorious cases that had congested
during tho two terms of Gov. \nsel.
He then switched off of the chief 0X
e'OUtive and was willing to talk on any

er term In the senate
"That depends on my health." he
replied. He said that he looked strong
but that he was a very weak man.
"I look into the glass and say Ye.;,
that Is Ben Tillman,' but when I try
rny old pranks I find I ran not do a
thing." he remarked in characteristic
Senator Tillman said that he did
not know whether h ? would return
to Washington for the extra session ol
congress. "I have my VOtO paired in
the senate." he said.
The senator does not know whether
reciprocity will get throueh the sen
ate. He thought it would very prob
ably strike a BUag there. "I don't
know the attitude of the senate on
tho question." he said.
Predicts a Split.
Senator Tillman predicted a split
In both parties and said that a new
party was sure to be formed. The
Democratic party, he said, must stand
by retrenchment. "If the Democratic
party has the statesmanship it will
seize the opportunity and hold the
reins as long as it pleases." Ho de
clared that the party must cut down
expenditures and do away with th 4
useless offices given ;>y the Republl
-can administration. He characterized
the new ollice building for the mem
bers Of the senate as a useless expense
?nd cited a magazine attack on the
"if the Democratic party fails to
clean up the house," ho said, "an

Asked as to the chances of the
Democratic parly to secure the presi

character and are able Wilson. Har

evidently a very bright and strong
man. with will power. He does things
which the people wish to see done"
"The Democratic parly." be de
clared, "has a golden opportunity to
win the next presidency If they are

In the game merely for the offices.
Senator \Tlllmnn considers Champ
'Clark an able man. as he is a droll
and witty' speaker. "1 would like to
see him president." he said, "but I
don't thiijk Hud his Mino has come."
Senator lElllinnii is of the opinion that
if Mr. Cl^rk. as speaker, handles the
house widely and conservatively that
he will .jonie day be the president of
the I'niied Slates.
