A Distinction With a Difference
YOU may not always get what you pay for.
It takes a good judge of values to do that,
but if there is one sure rule in business it
is?you pay for all you get. You may not be
able to see the difference between engines of
similar appearance at different prices, but if
you buy from a reputable firm you may be sure
the difference in quality is there.
IH C Oil and Gasoline Engines
cost more than some others because they are
more carefully made, and more thoroughly
tested. Skillful designing, better material,
better workmanship, more careful assembling,
and more thorough testing, tell in the long
run. Given equal care an I H C engine costs
less per year of service than any other engine
you can buy. If an I H C engine is given all
the work it will do, pumping, sawing wood,
running the grindstone, feed grinder, hay press,
silage cutter, repair shop machines, cream
separator, churn, washing machine, etc., etc.,
it will pay for itself in a very short time in
money and labor saved.

HOW THE STATE PRESS VIEWS
THE ATTACK OE TILLMAN UPON DIAL
Senator TUlman denies that Till
manlsm and Bleaseisni are synon
oinous. We said a day or two ago that
Tlllnianism was Dleaseism idealized
by a lapse of years and by softened
viows. But the letter of Tlllman to
Dial is a typical example of Blease
ism or Tillmanlsm, without the ideal
ized aspect. The expose of his op
ponent's son was absolutely uncalled
for and useless, having no connection
with the matter under consideration.
It was Tillmanlsm, Bleaeelsm or any
other name one may choose to call It.
The Spartanburg Journal thinks that
Senator Till man's letter to Mr. Dial is
uncalled for, unnecessary and useless
because it has no connection with the
matter under consideration. We are
inclined to agree with this view. Ac
cording to our way of looking at It,
Mr. Dial shows rather questionable
tact in contesting the senator's elec
tion on a pure technicality; but still
that does not justify Senator Tlllman
In what he said. And somehow too
we are unable to get rid of the idea
that if Senator Tlllman is correct in
what he states about young Dial, and
he used his power and Influence for
that young man in saving him from
consequences that he had rightfully
Incurred, then maybe the senator has
nothing to brag about In connection
with the matter either. But of course,
according to present day standards,
there is room for difference of opin
ion on that point.?Yorkville En
We notice that Senator Tlllman says
some very hard things about Mr. N.
B. Dial, of Laurens. and states that he
would not have said them if Mr. Dial
had not joined in the contest of Tin
man's election. Mr. Tlllman claims to
have appointed Mr. Dial's son to Anna
polis, but at the same time says that
in a competitive examination, Mr.
Dial's son won the appointment. I)
the appointment was to be decided on
a competitive examination, and young
Dial stood the best examination, and
won the appointment, we do not see
where Mr. Tlllman showed Mr. Dial
any special favor in appointing his
son, or where Mr. Dial Is under
any special obligations to Mr. Till
man for such appointment. There
should have been no need of a compe-,
titive examination If the young man
who won in such examination was to
get the appointment by special favor of
As to the other matters contained in
Mr. Tlllman's statement, to the effect
that he protected the young man, It
seems to us If it had been done in tlie
proper spirit by Mr. Tlllman, it should
have been a matter which he would
have refrained, even under the present
circumstances, from giving to the pub-1
V B. Dial Replies.
One who reads the statement Of
Senator Tlllman concerning Mr. N.
B. Dial was constrained to believe
that the latter was under obligation
to the senator. Such a conclusion
as this, however, will no longer hold
water unless the senator brings forth
proof of his statement. Mr. Dial
in a letter to the News and Courier
gives his version of the affair which
Is very different from that stated and
Implied by the senator.
In the beginning Mr. Dial says that
his son won a competitive examina
tion to Annapolis opened to the state
at large by Senator Tlllman. He
further states that if his son got Into
any trouble at the nnval academy no
word of it ever reached his ears. ;
The only trouble came after the
younger Dial had stood a competitive
examination open to the country at
large and had secured a position in
the pny department of the navy.
This position tho boy held for some
time and finally it developed that he
had overdrawn his accounts, perhaps
not with malicious intent, but In an
effort to entertain lavishly as the old
er officers did.
Mr. Dial went to Washington and
calling upon the secretary of the
navy Mr. Meyer found that he was
absent. He then called upon the as
sistant secretary and was informed
that Senator Tlllman's influence with
tho naval department was "nil," the
senator and the secretary not being
on speaking terms. Accordingly Mr.
Dial secured tho aid of an old friend
In the Senate and arranged for the
matter to be settled in secret. He
paid the deficit of his son and de
manded ad investigation. In the
meantime his son came home and re
signed. The resignation was ac
cepted and the boy suffering from
tuberculosis was sent to a sani
Senator Tlllman, according to Mr.
Dial, was Informed confidentially of
the matter and promised not to make
it public. A|so according to Mr.
Dial the senator admitted that he had
little Influence in the navy depart
ment. So far as Mr. Dial is con
cerned Jiis is the whole matter. The I
finances of the ship upon which the
younger Dial was working were con
ducted very loosely.
.\lr. Dial concludes that Senator
Tlllman stooped to very low politics
in dragging this family affair in the
limelight. We agree with Mr. Dial,|
for there was no reason for bring
ing the matter to light as the race
had already been run. And even
if the election had not been held there
was still no justification for any such
tactics which lower political stan
dards. The senator has not hurt Mr,
Dial, but we are afraid that he has
hurt the Btandard Of ethics which the
good people of South Carolina have
endeavored to erect. For a United
States senator to adopt methods which
would reflect discredit on a two-by
four politician is decidedly malodorus.
Doth sides have now stated their po
sitions and the people should not
form an opinion without due regard
for each. It Is the word of Senator
Tlllman against that of Mr. Dial
and since the former brought the
allegation we await the proof before
discarding the hitter's version.
