Says his Health will not Permit him
to --ake a Campaign, but Keiles up
on the Sympathy of the oVters.
Senator 13. R. Tlllrnan, senior sena
tor from South Carolina has sent an
address to the people of South Caro
lina in which Mr. Tlllrnan announces
his determination to stick in the sen
atorial race but not to make any
speeches. 13y advice of his doctors, he
says, he will ?ot take the stump.
The senator's address to tht peo
To the people of South Carolina:
Twenty-two years ago I asked you
to elect me to the office of governor.
You did it, after a very hot campaign
in which I spoke In every county of
the State. Two years later I asked
for reelection. You gave me the of
fice the second time by an overwhelm
ing vote. After four years of service
in the governor's ofllce, I asked you
to send me to the senate, and again,
after a heated canvasB, you plac?d
me In the office I now hold.
I have held this office for nearly 18
years, and I am asking you to reelect
me to It, although my health is brok
en and I am no longer the strong and
vigorous man I once was. I have a
ripe experience and thorough knowl
edge of the working of the govern
ment, and have many warm personal
friends in the dpartments and in
both branches of congress.
I came to the senate in a cloud of
obloquy on account of newspaper
abuse at home. 1 have fought my
way in spite of it and have lived to'
see most of the newspaper men In the
press gallery my friends.
Dy long service and hard work, T
Take notice that on the 6th day of

trator of the setate of Matilda Rice,
deceased, in the office of the Judge of
Probate of Laurens county, at 11 o'
clock, a. m., and on the same day will
apply for a final discharge from my
trust as Administrator.
Any persons indebted to said estate

I have flattered no man and feared
no man In debate, and 1 have a
strong desire to "die in harness," for
sentimental reasons only.
I have no words that can express
my appreciation and gratitude for
the confidence and love you have giv
en me In all these years. If I did not
feel that my experience and Intimate
acquaintance with public affairs will
enable me to give acceptable service
In the future. I would not ask reelec
tion at your hands, but content my
self with the full measure of the
honors you have given me already.
When I first came Into public life,
I met a storm of opposition, which
was very bitter and intense. It re
quired intense and aggressive action
to overcome It; and being combative
by nature. I fought with all my might
for those things I thought were
right, -und won because you ap
proved my policies, my utterances and
Amid this exciting contest, many
things were said and done on both
sides that, perhaps, had better been
left unsaid and undone. Men are but
human, and when fired by strong con
viction, they speak and do things
which they afterward Tegret, As
God is my Judge, I never said any
thing but truth, or did anything as
governor or as senator. I did not be
lieve to be for the public welfare.
As I look back over my career, I can
see mistakes and blunders, plenty of
them, but they were honest blunders,
and I have never permitted selfish
ambition or petty revenge to control
my actions. I have tried to be sena
tor of all the people, as I was gov
ernor of the whole State and my am- j
bitlon has been, in the senate, to give
the people the best service of which
I was capable.
Owing to my poor health and in
accordance with the advico of my
physician, I shall not make any i
speeches during the canvass this sum
mer. All of the old men in the State
! have already beard me speak, and If
there are any young ones who have
not and desire It, I shall take pleas
ure in mailing such pamphlet copies
of some of my best speeches which
I have yet on hand. Nothing would
delight me more than to be able once
again to see my old friends face to
face, and it saddens me to think that
I shall never have this pleasure again.
I phall hope that the people of
' South Carolina will not displace me
[ by voting me out, but that in somo
way you will indicate a wish for me
to retire from this position because
I of your belief that I am no longer
physically capable of performing the
duties of the office. The senatorship
i has always been regarded by me as
? a sacred trust, and if I knew you
wanted me to surrender It, I would
gladly lay it down, conscious that I
have don ^ my duty always to the best
i of my ability. 11. R. Tlllrnan.

COLLEGE GIRLS COMING.
Chiron? College Glee Club to Giro
Performance Jn the Graded School
Auditorium Friday ETenlng.
A wave of Interest and enthusiasm
has spread over the city since the an
nouncement that the Chlcora College
Glee Club would be at the graded
school auditorium Friday evening. The
young ladles Will certainly be here and
from all reports they will be greet
ed by a large audience of music lov
ers. The young ladles will sing and
play classical and humorous pieces
that will be enjoyed by every one who
will come out. This will be unlike
the usual musical concert, in that it
will be a sprightly and lively affair,
where genuine musicians can find
equal enjoyment with those who are
not so critically Inclined. It Is cer
tain to be a treat.
It was stated In The Advertiser last
week that the proceeds are to go to
the County Hospital. While It is cer
tain that the young ladles would have
been glad to come to help out the
hospital, still the fact is that they
were invited by Supt. B. L. Jones, of
the city schools, and it is under the
school's auspices that they are to be
here. The proceeds are to go to
ward buying books and other things
for the school library. While here
the young ladles will be entertained
in the homes of Presbyterian families.
The following very complimentary
notice was made of their appearance
at Clemson College:
The Chlcora Glee Club.
The greatest event of Clemson life
this year was the entertainment given
by the Chlcora Glee Club on Friday ?
evening In the Memorial Hall under
the auspices of the Greater-Clemson !
Association. This Glee Club Is com
posed of eighteen pretty Chlcora Col
lege girls. This entertainment was
a rare treat and was enjoyed to the
fullest extent by all present. The
audience gave very appreciative atten
tion to the many good numbers sung
by this company of girls, and the im
mensity of the applause spoke only for
a part of this appreciation. The Glee
Club was accompanied to the college
by J)r. Byrd, President of the College
and Mrs. Bellemann, Director of the
Vocal department. The young ladles
who compose this Glee Club which so
delightfully entertained their audience
are: Misses Miller. Edmunds, Thomp
son, Morrison, Langford, Owens Mc
Queen, Engles, Simpson, James, Jones,
Murrah, Ashe, Johnson, Taber, Par
sons, Pureell, and Hlgginbotham.
We cannot speak too highly of the
splendid program The exercises
were by far more beautiful than any
we have had dorlng this college year.
Mrs. Bellamann, Director of Voice at
Chlcora, deserves special praise for
the smoothness with which every fea
ture of the program was rendered.
The concert will begin at S:30
o'clock. The prices for admission will
I be 25 and 50 cents.
