BISHOP & WOLFF
Laurens, S. C.
SENATOR TILLMAN WRITES
OPEN LETTER TO 80V. BLEASE.
(Continued From Page Two.)
Returning to the blessing? which
have been showered PUOQ me. I have
before I die the satlsfact.on of know
ing, ua I now do know, that I have
won the admiration, love and con
fidence of the antl-Tillmanltes of old,
and of the Haskellltes even. I owe
my re-election to the Senate to these
men that came to me when some of
my old friends, the "wool-hat, one
gallus boys," rtnd my fellow citizens
who work in the cotton mills, were
shouting "crucify him," "retire him ,
to private life, etc." "we can no longer
trust him," etc. My re-election to the
Senate is assured and 1 "shall die in
harness." when the Lord's time comes
for me to go.
I am conscious that all of the good
people of the State now appreciate
lue and realize at least what manner
of man I am.
It Is a sweet thought to feel that
many of the Haskellitles voted for
me, and right here I wan to say that
that "Haskelllte" ought not to be an
eplthot of opprobrium in South Caro
lina any longer. Judge llaskell and
1 made friends before he died and I
always felt that he was a bill)'! fa
natic who had been led off into the
frozny of indepententisni by the same
emotions which your election has
produced. He was a knightly gen
tleman and a brave soldier, fence to
his ashes, llaskellism and Hlonseisin
ought to be burled in the same grave
and the world hear no more of either.
It is time for South Carolina to
quit wounding each other's feelings
and fighting like cats and dogs. No
good can come of it and much harm
has already come of ti. and more will
follow if we do not realize that a
"house divided ncainst itself cannot
stand." As good men voted for
Blease as voted for Jones. They felt
it to be their right as citizens, and
many of the religiously believed
that their liberties were in danger, for
you, Governor are reported as saying
thut if Jones was elected they would
never vote again.
Jefferson said once that as between
government without newspapers and
newspapers without govenment ho
would take the latter for tho news
papers would keep the people inform
ed and they would nave intelligence
enough to give themselves good gov
ernment in some way. The newspa
papcrs in South Carolina have lost
sight of the necessity for fair and
square dealing with theirreaders, so
much so that they have not the in
fluence with the people that they
ought to have. There is room for a
great many reforms in this particu
lar and 1 sincerely hope that the ed
itors of the South Carolina papers
will seriously consider how they can
regain tho confidence of the people
again. So great lias been the dis
trust caused by the dishonesty and
partisnship that hundreds nay thu
sands of my friends could not be made
to believe that I had written the let
ter to Ferguson or given out the
statement accompanying it. 1 receiv
ed many, many telegrams and let
ters asking whether it was authen
tic. This condition of the public
mind has been brought about by
seeing that the newspapers in their
hcadiness and in the body of the ar
ticles themselves distort and color un
righteously the tacts. When tiie peo
ple are taught they can always be
trusted, but When the people distrust
the newspapers and believe them cor
rupt and dishonest and given to all
manner of lying they lose that respeef
for them tlint is nccssary to pr
serv free government.
If I ever get able to speak again
I want to go to three counties in
South Carolina and talk to my old
friends face to lace, Anderson. Lau
rens and York. You nave stolen the
love and confidence of these people?
1 did not lose it; you stole it. Who
would ever have believed it possible
that the men who 22 years ago were
so frenzied in their Tlllmanlsm and
worship of Tillmna as to unhitch the
horses from his carriage and hitch
themselves to drag him in triumph
through the street would come to dis
trust, hate and abuse him without
Madame Roland before she was
guillotined exclaimed: "Oh, liberty,
what crimes are committed in thy
name." Noting tho progress which
has been made toward the demorali
zation among the Democrats in South
Carolina one can shout "Oh, Democ
racy, will the people never learn to
know their true friends from their
false leaders, never distinguish be
tween a statesman and a damagogue,
always listening to flattery and sweet
words without looking below the sur
face and the true inwardness of
things and man." To think that the
very men fOi whom I have done most,
the poor farmers and factory peo
ple should turn and rend me their
way! I gave them Clemson College
and Winthrop. At least I had more
to do with it than any other one
man. I gave them the primary, for
I wrote the Democratic State consti
tution witli my hands in conjunction
with my brother, G. D. Tlllman, and
made the rules governing the primary
and safe-guarded in every possible way
their rights so that now every cit
izen can protect himself if he has
sense enough .
All pleasure and satisfaction in my
re-election to the Senate is gone be
cause of the desertion of those old
friends and followers of mine. It
makes me doubt seriously whether I
have not erred grievously in giving
the power of self-government to those
people and teaching them their rights.
They show such a woeful lack of
gratitude. I feel that when I am
dead and In the. grave tha they will
realize and understand the criminal
folly of their betraval of their best
friend. I know if I could have spok
en to them In the summer this trage
dy could net have occured. When
these old friends have had time to
cool off and think it all over they
will curse themselves for such base
Inagratitude and for their idiocy in
being misled by the demagogue. To
think that they had been such fools
as not to understand and grant the
old man's last plea to "die in harness"
serving them and serving the State
and nation! Oh, its painful.
If you can clear yourself of the
foul accusations made against you in
Governor's oftlce and will pursue
a wholly different policy hereafter.
there's some future for you in tho|i
State yet. if you do uoi, >oui name
will go down In history as the very I \
worst native of South Carolina who |.
was ever Governor. Moses not except 1
ed. 1 repeat you are "eminently J
qualified to he governor as far as n
brains go," and If you reform and ?
make good In the two years you have J
yet to serve in that otllce. the people <
may forgive you. But you must be 1
Governor of the whole people and ',
not of your friends alone, and they I <
always supposing that you clear your- '
self of the Infamous charges that I ,
have been brought against you. For <
unless you do that you can never hope '
lo asgire to higher position for | \
the people of South Carolina will ?
never send to Washington a man not '
above suspicion. Your destiny Is J
leargely In your own hands, Governor. ?
For the honor of the State 1 hopo '
you can and will clear yourself. May J
God forgive you for the sins you have <
committed against yourself and the '
people of the State. J
Governor Please, you are given an- <
other opportunity. "Will you make J
use of It and show that you are a ?
man and not a demon? Put the <
devil behind you and be the Gov- <
ernor of all the people instead of your <
friends alone. Conquer yourself and ?
lusted of being the Governor of 72. ,
000 become the Governor of the 140,
000 men in South Carolina. If you I
do this the "heathen will quit raging." '
while "the righteous will rejoice." \
You have the brains. Make us ? of <
them instead of giving way to your '
evil passion. I do assure you that ?
you will die a happier man if you will <
follow this advice. Conquer your \
enemies by kindness and justice. You ?
cannot conquer them in any other <
