REAL CLEIY1SON MAN
l)r. J, W.Vvpaulel Says He is Respon?
Bible for ( ?liege. Suggestion to
Walterboro, Jan. s.?"1 am respon
sible for Clotnson college, and I am
I proud of it." was said by Dr. J. W.
Daniel, presiding elder of the Charles
ton tiiBtrict, at a meeting of the board
cf btcward* at ir>^ hrct quarterly
conference heid Sunday night at
Bethel Methodist church.
To a newspaper man present, this
was rather a startling statement. Sen
ator 13. R. Tillinan has been receiv
ing credit for the achievement In^this
neck of the woods, and doubtless in
every other "neck" where the state
ment of Dr. Dnnlel has been heard.
So the newspaper man present sat
up and took notice.
The discussion of the efforts being
made to raise funds for the purchase
of the new district parsonage in
Charleston caused the remark. Dr.
Daniel is very much Interested in this
recent purchase by the Methodists
of the Charleston district, and was
asked by a member of the board to
tell those present about it. This oc
curred in one of those delightful in
formal periods punctuating all of Di.
Daniel's meetings with the stewards
of his district, when ho becomes rem
He said that when he was quite a
young man having just entered the
ministry he was sent to the old l'en
dletcm charge. At that time Thomas
G. Clcmson was an old and eccentric
man, a skeptic, lie had never been
known to go to church, but after sev
eral visits by Dr. Daniel he came at
once to his church. Dr Daniel said
there seemed to spring up a liking for
him by the old man, who was quite
About this time a meeting of the
local agricultural fair association was
held, and Qov. Terry was present as
a speaker. Attention was thus direct
ed to the subject of agricultural de
velopment. Shortly after th's Col.
Simpson came to see Dr. Danl.'l, and
In conversation informed him that Mr.
Clemson was thinking of leaving his
possessions to found a mining oollego.
Col. Simpson being an alumnus of
Wofford colleger was anxious to get
this property for his alma mater. Dr,
Daniel said to Col. Simpson: "It
would be foolish for Mr. Clemson to
leave this money to found a college
on mines as there is nothing to mine
In this State but n few llsh bones
down on the coast, and if he wants to
found a college, why doesn't he found
an agricultural college?" Col. Simp
son, Dr. Daniel said, was very im
pressed with the suggestion and
stated that ho was going right over
and sugnest it to Mr. Clemson, which
he did. Mr. Clemson at once becom
ing quite enthusiastic. This," said
Dr. Daniel, ''was the birth of Clem
son college which has become such
a splendid school. Mr. Tillman and
others may not like me to say this
but these are facts."
After the meeting adjourned. Dr.
Daniel was asked by the reporter if]
he had any objection to the use of
his remarks relative to the foundation
of Clemson college. "None what
ever," was the reply. "They are
facts, so why should I mind?"
It requires no Btrctch of the Imag
ination to believe that this was the
real birth of the college, to one who
knows Dr. Daniel. A close student
of the conditions and affairs, and with
an intensely practical mind, such a
suggestion wpt but a logical sequence.
A book, which is now In the hands
of the publishers, written by him
shows how very practical he can be.
This book, "The Hottom Rail," will
create a sensation, it Is predicted,
when it comes from the press, and
perhaps will have as far reaching ef
fects as the suggestion to Mr. Clemson
that he leave his money to found an
agricultural college.?The State.

JOSEPH T. JOHNSON
Representative from This District has
Kecord for Achievement in Getting
Through Dig Supply Bill.
Washington, Jan. i. Momberg of
congress returning from their Christ
mas vacation, and those who did not
come to Washington before the re
cess, are still talking about the some
what remarkable achievement of
Representatlce Johnson in passing
through the house one of the big sup
ply bills within four days after Its
introduction, and within one week
roin the convening of congress. Jt
is rather unusual for the house to
pass any of the big appropriation
billB before Christinas, but Mr. John
son, almost without assistance, pre
pared his $:ir>,000,000 bill and got it
passed in record time.
Day after day be conducted com
mittee hearings when . he was the
only member of his committee pres
ent. He had called the committee to
take up the bill on November 20.
and the bill was taken up on that
date, though the subcommittee mem
bers, other than Mr. Johnson, did not
appear. In this way the bill was
practically ready for report and in
troduction on the Hist day of the ses
sion and on the third day of the ses
sion it was reported, on the fourth
day it was introduced, and on the
eighth day it was passed.
Practically without Amendment.
Remarkable as this achievement
was, from the standpoint of time,
there was another feature still more
remarkable. ?o carefully had the
bill been prepared, and so logically
did Mr. Johnson explain Its provis
ions when it was up for discussion,
that although it carried 135,000,000,
composed of thousands of items, ti e
bill as passed carried only $2,058
more than the bill as introduced. On
ly four amendments were added to
the bill which Mr. Johnson did not
himself offer, and one of these he
prepared for another member, who
offered it on the floor.
Hy adopting the "pop-gun" meth
od, the long standing effort to abol
ish the useless assay olllccS in tin
United States was successful in the
Johnson bill this session. For a long
time it has been conceded by almost
everyone thai the assay ofllcos In
Doadwood, Helena, Charlotte, and
other places were a useless expense,
but pressure has prevented their
abolish tliom was strongly prosecut
ed, but was unsuccessful, because the
representatives of the various states
Involved stood together and wen
able to defeat H O provision. This year
the bill provided for the abolishment
of some of the ofllCOS, leaving the
others, and the community of inter
est between the various states was
thus removed, and several of the
OfllCOS, including the one at Char
lotte, were abolished by the bill. Next
year it is proposed to complete the
work of closing up these uselessly
expensive offices, and representatives
from the states in which the olllces
l ave this year been closed will not
be Interested in the matter. In this
way It will probably be possible to
close them all. saving hundreds of
thousands of dollars a year.
