SET AT REST
Senator THIman In the Race
TO AUGUSTA PAPER
Declares in Kmphutic Language Unit
He will be In (he Kuce and that He
will be Heady In Meet AII-Comers.
Hands oil' in Jones-Blouse Knee for
(By J. L. McWortor In Augusta Chron
"I will be a candidate for reelection
to the United States Senate if 1 am
alive and not In artleulo mortis. Yes,
by Ood, I believe if 1 am dead I'll let
'em vote for me a little anyhow."
In this emphatic language Senator
Ilenjnmin Ryan Till man sets forever
nt rest the cherished hopes of some,
and the doubts of others, as to whether
lie will be in the United States Sen
atorial race next year.
Actlro on the Farm.
At his fnrni near Trenton yesterday.
Senator Tlllman "talked the matter
over," with a stulff representative of
The Chronicle, and In language more
or less, Tlllmanessue, as the various
phases demanded, stated that he be
lieved he would be elected again with
"It has been said often, that I could
sit on my back porch and be re-elect
ed," said he. "I don't know why they
always mention my back porch for
the front porch is much more cheerful
and I use it the more, but I suppose
they mean to imply that I need not
oven show myself in the campaign and
that my friends in South Carolina
will see that I go back, If I want to."
Senator Tlllman was busy on his
farm but he took time to say that
To those who are familiar with the
oft repeated statements as to his fail
ing health it may come as a surprise |
to know that he sleeps well, oats heart
lly, gives the whole farm his personal
supervision by walking and riding ov
er It every day, in fact many times
a day, dictates his private and otllclal
letters to his secretary, and that his
mind Is as clear as a bei, and his old
time fire of speech and manner blazes
out at opportune times. The only real
reminder of his past affliction Is the
cane he carries?and he sometimes
forgets that and gets along seemingly
as well as with It.
Heath the Only Bar.
Barring death, he will be in the
race, and he will make speeches too.
and he says he doesn't care who or
how many enter the Held. Any one
has a right to offer who wishes to.
Entirely Hands Off.
"Senntor it has been more than
hinted by some that you are encour
aging, and will hack Governor Bleaso
for re-election as governor, next sum
mer. The Chronicle wants to know
directly from you. If you will give It,
bow much truth there is in these bints
and rumors?" was the direct question
asked Senator Tlllman by the repre
sentative of The Chronicle.
"I am not going to help a damn soul
in that race I am going to be strict
ly hands-off and neutral, and further
more I have not given any one any
authority to say that I was for or
against either of the candidates who
have announced, I am not going to
mix In it or have anything to do with
The Senator's attention was called
to the story in yesterday morning's
Chronicle, written by Col. Leon
Qreen, a former newspaper man In
South Carolina, in which it was stat
ed that Senator Tlllman would be a
factor in the race ami he said that he
did not see much in the story, but that
it was "probably written to draw inc
out." lie said that he did not know
who Inspired the story, but so far as
the references to his being a factor
was concerned ho could only repeat
what he had just said: That he was
"not going to bo mixed up in it."
Senator Tlllman, from his talk, is
evidently of tho opinion that neither
Governor Bleaso nor .Mr. Justice Jones
will win in a walk over tho other.
To an observer of tho post record,
and the current trend of happenings,
so far the situation appears to be thus
as to tho relative chances of the two
announced candidates for tho gov
Governor Bloase, from reports has
evidently made fi lends by some of bis
recent speeches, notably the ones" at
Ware Shoals and Orangeburg. There
was a largo number who voted for him
In tho second race. This administra
tion, so far, to say the least, has been
veryorrntlc, and ho has certainly lost
^ thereby many of his original support
ers. -Now, has be gained more now
vkli'iul'- (ban he has lost old one... and
^04be course he is pursuing as chief
l^j^ytue losing him the support of
, t. re counted by him as j
Blease men? Mr. Justice Jones, on |
the other hand, should rightfully lay
claim at the start to at least as much
of the old Tlllman vote as his oppo
nent, for he was elected by a Tlllman
legislature) at a time when Tlllman
ism was all powerful In the State. He
represents the opposite to all that
the present governor represents, ex
cept as to his pronounced views on the
liquor question. Ho lnys down the
most dignified end honored position
in the slate to uphold what the state
formerly stood for through its chief
executive. As a campaigner ho is al
most an unknown equation. But he
has entered the race with the deter
mination of winning. The elimination
of Senator Tlllman by his emphatic
utterances yesterday, has cleared the
decks for action. Tlllman will doubt
less succeed himself. Blouse cannot
escape the race for re-election, and
he and Jones must light it out. This
now becomes plain.

Schools may not make men and
women, but they will always help.
Certainly the lack of educational ad
vantages will not make men and wom
en. Because the little log schoolbouse
with the slab benches and two-by-four
blackboard has turned out strong
men and no ble women, it does not
follow that they would not have been
oven stlonger and nobler and have
had greater Influence for good if they
had had better advantages In their
youth. Because your hero, perhaps,
learned his letters for himself by a
lllckering lire of ligbtwood knots and
got most of his learning in the "School
of Hard Knocks," it does not follow
that there is no better way of train
ing men. All the evidence agrees
that the more of opportunity, the
more of culture, there can bo put In
to the life of boy or girl, the better
will bo his or her chances of devel
oping into the worthiest and most
useful type of manhood or woman
hood. AVe believe, with Elbert Hub
bard, that It is a good thing for a boy
to have had the privilege of warming
his feet cold mornings on the ground
where the cows lay the night before;
but we also believe that It Is good
for him to have had the privilege of
going to a schoolbouse made neat
and bright and cheerful without and
within, and of advancing from that
schoolbouse to higher institutions of
learning where he can breathe the
air of academic inspiration, absorb
the traditions and ideals of his col
lege, and acquire all that it can give
