outlook than I. Tlil ine what is going
on today, anyhow."
He was liiformed of the stbstance
of the press ditpatches. "Well, they
had, as you know, not gotten into the
legislative attempt at handling the
matter up to the tine that I left Wash

th outcome any more than can you
newspaper men. President Wilson has
worked faithfully on the coli)lcx prob

hard one to handle. All that I can
say Is that, like you young men, I hope

in your state?"
"Manning, I hope."

betting man, as you know."
"No doubt about Mr. Wilson's elec

But," he i'dded with a chuckle, "that
cotton price has gotten to be fine,
hasn't it? The cotton price will make
up where the cotton crop falls short."
Senator Tillman was informed by re
porters that the eastern papers were
still commenting favorably on his
"farwell" speech in the senate, when
lie announced the burial of the "pitch
fork," and rebuked Mr. Hughes for his
"South in the saddle' utterances.
lie said that lie, also ,had heard
many coimmenits from the East on the
address, and lie was pleased that it
had been accepted in the spirit that it
This address, by the by, made in the
