to what polity he voul pursui in the

Farmer' movement man for four years,
he was an Alliance man to the Vore,
and in symip-thy with all reasonable
demands of that organization. He was
also a Democrat to the core. The Far

ag-Irieved by unjust legislation, and

Gov. Tillman thought Col. Irby
would make a Senator of whom the
State Nwould be proid. Iis ability
I manliness and courage would wake up
old fogies. Gov. Tillman stated that
Irby will be the first simon pure far
mer elected to the United States Sen
ate since the war. His election was
the culmination (f -the reformi move
ment in South Carolina. It was the
signal to the farmers all over the
United States to wake up. "South
Carolina is again in the lead, and sets
her sisters of the North and South an
exanmple they will do well to follow, by
I sending a majority of farmers to the
Sen.ate as sool as possible.'"
When asked as to what would have
beii the result if Hampton had been
re-elected. Gov. Tillman said "To
have sent Hampton back to the Senate,
after his endorsiug Haskell and Has
kell's voting for Ensor, would have
ben a St ultilication of the reform
movement and a confession that its at
tack on the oligarchy was wrong."

Senator-elect Irby was in a commit

he received the information that. he
had been eleted Senator. le ex
pressed some surprise at the short time
which it took to decide the matter and
sent a telegram home, telling his famn

THOS. COLLEGE ISOYS
Set-4 SUn Arp to Thinkin;- About the
Modern Way of Teachina the
Youth of the Country-Other
I was rimina:tiii over those college
boy-, :30 Yale college by.S on a lark in
New York-painting the town red,
hooting, howling and yelling in the
hotels and saloons and in the streets
like a lot of escaped lunatics, running
over the police and the people, and
making everybody get out of their way.
It must have been an awful time,
according to the newspapers, and I
had'a letter from a friend who lives
there, and lie says that nothing like it
was ever seen in pandeioniuni. As a
)utehnan said to me, "It was a wiot,
a Wow, a wunipus."' And it was all
because they had beaten the Princeton
boys iat a gaie of football. Good gra
1::,,u-, what a g1orious victory, what a
grand success, what a niagnificent anid
hecoic deed ! They actually beat the
ither fellows kickin1g a bal, and it
t4iIk :) drul'Nks to cOIlplete the victory.
Last year there was a shameful riot at
I Iivard; and a hotel burned up. What
is the matter with the northern col
lege: We don't have aiy such carouse
ments dowin South. I know there are
none slich in Georgia. Our college boys
doii't have any time to run off 500
ni!es to kick a ball. Our Oxford boys
don't dare to go forty miles to Atlanta
unless it is with a special permit to
have their photographs taken as a class
sonie Saturday morning, and they
have to go back on the evening train.
I would like to peruse Dr. Bogg's
countenance if the Athens boys were
to ask for a week's recess to go sone
where and kick a ball. What kind of
education are these Yale boys getting
-maybe they have just joined the
gymnastic department and nothing
else. After they have gotten their
diplomas I would like to ask then a
few quest ions in mathematics. I would
like to know if forty boys can kick an
eight-inch ball 20o hundred yards in
forty unutes, on a basis of ten drinks
to the boy, how many drinks will it
take to enable fifty boys to kick a
seven-inch ball 300 yards in thirty
minutes. If ball kicki!jg is to be their
bus.ness they ought to know how to do
that sun. Heaven help us when these
boys are to take our places. The whole
North seems to be tainted with this
same liberty of education-this go as
you please, do as you please and SLtUdy
when you please sort of business. If
the old man is likely to die and leave a
5IU0,000 to the college his boys must
be under no restraint. Yale and Har
vard have got their millions of endow
ment from their rich alumni and they
want more. I saw it stated the other
(lay that Harvard had averaged $400,
000 a year in bequests for the last ten
years. Maybe sonie of the boys are
doing well and making good use of
their time, but I wvouldenit risk a boy
of mine there. I wouldent risk a boy
or girl at any institution North of Phila
delphia. They are too free and too
I believe in my heart that the South
will have to save this government
from a wreck; and that duty will be
upon her before the end of ihe century.
The morality and conservatism of the
Sou thern people are righ t now the safe
guards of the nation. The bad men,
the profligate and lawless will soon
outnumber the good, honest, law-abid
ing people of the North. I overheard a
go od-looking, 1in ely dressed New York
youth say to Mir. Hughes, on the ears:
"I (li't like .your town of Atlanta; a
muan has to walk :200 yards to get a
drink; it is awful tiresome. I live on
Third avenue in New York, and there
are over :na first-class saloons on that
avenue. When a gentleman wants a
drink there is a saloion within , y-feet
of hu n anywhere on the line."'
"Where have you been, .Jone."' a i
I to a fellowv-citizen. Said lhe: "I have
been down to the Technological insti
tute to have sonic work clone for my
mill, and I tell you what is a fact, I
got it (lone better and quicker and
cheaper than I counld have done any
where else. Mline was a peculiar and a
pariticular job, and required skilftul
ha,nds. T1hose boys did it, and they did
it so) well I had to praise themi and
thank them. And besides their skill
they are so gentlemanly and courteous
in their departmient, so ready to answer
questions and take heed to suggestions
that it has been a pleasure to ime to
visit the institution. I wish that I had
a boy to sendt there.'"
And then I thought about the girls'
ind ustrial school that we are bul'ding
at 31illedgeville, and how <quickly it
will be filled when it is finished, and
how, biefore mianyv yer thouse working
ir~ls will be mnating with those workinga
boys, and what un inldepenident team
it will make in lighlting thle battle of
li fe; what a cont rast to thle ball kickers
andi the dludes and buitterllies that infest
our ci:ties and do inothuiing bunt pay calls
and recei ve calls, anda read novels in
bed, andi get up. ti breakfast at 10 o'
clock, and changie their apparel t hree
or four tiimes a lay. I have but little
pienlce wih these college girls who
skimi thrtough and read a compoIsOitionf
thatt so:nebodyls wrote, and carry
home a paihntinig that the teacher
pain tedl, and theni begin to circulaLte and
vi-it their clasmates, and when they
arc not on the go, their classmates are
Onl thle c,ime, and here tiev tgo anld
there they comea, and it all costs moiney,
andl the old folks get no good3, and no
help, and no0 comfort from either the
comling or the going, and when it is
toio late they realize thiat sending the
daughter to a feshionale college was a
sad mistake. It has not nmade them
bad or strong minded, but they arejust
1 .0 acon,tis all. I say it deliber
ately, and from long observation, that
if a girl is sent away from home to col
lege, and stays there two or three years,
nine out of ten will be no account when
they conie home. They may be good
scholars, and even niart in cheniistry
and geometry and astronomy, but her
business in life is not to use the blow
pipe, nor measure the earth, nor the
stars. When the college is at home,
and the girl lives at lionie and helps
her mother, and does some housework
every day, a college Is a good thing for
her, but work must be mixed with
study, or the girl or the boy will be no
account. Of course, the girl will come
home accomplished, and will know
how to stand up and sit down, and
walk around gracefully, and how to
smile, and sing, and recline, and lan
guish, and all that, but she is not
going to cut and fit and make a dre: s
for little Sally nor help Bob with his
arithmetic. W'orse than all, s(.,me
sentini--ntal society editor of a news
paper will mention her as the charm
ing and lovely -Miss Euphronia, and
that will almost make a fool of her.
Iayhap she will visit Atlanta or Ma
con or Augusta and the society editor
will note her arrival and use adjectives
upon her-elegant, graceful, fawn-like,
sylph-like, brilliant, exquisite, beauti
ful and divine. Right then she is gone
up. I wish these society editors could
get up a new set of words just to vary
the monotony of their gushing flattery.
They ay though that it always secures
a subscriber to the paper; that two
adjectives, generally do the work, and
that three are sure.
When a poor man looks straight at
the results he need not envy the rich
for being able to send their children to
college. If he can give his own a good,
fair education at home he is surer of
their usefulness and success in life, and
he ought to be content.
Therefore, we want good schools at
home, within our reach. Good schools
in every town and village and hamlet,
and if the State can't provide all the
money the counties ought to supple
meat it with a county tax. The country
will never be able to cope with the
towns until her people have more and
better schools. Every year the country
loses some more of their best citizens.
Just as soon as a farmer is able to move
to town he moves. The wife and the
daughters bring a pressure for society
and schools and churches. Ten years
ago I lived in a good naborhood five
miles from town. One by one my na
bors left me, Mr. Dobbins and the Aub
reys, and Nabor Freeman and the Bu
fords, and Mr. Cotto,i and Keever, and
Montgomery and Geodson and Flem
mjing and Johnson, and last of all, Mr.
Munford and Mr. Renfro. Our twelve
families are all in town now, and we
came mainly for schools and churches.
White tenants and negroes have taken
our places and of course the farms will
be run down to some extent. There
will be no social gatherings and no far
mers' clubs, and no good schools with
trained teachers. They way things are
going on there will soon be nobody in
the country except poor folks and ne
groes. It is that way now all over South

A Clerk is Discharced on Account of His
"Political Conduct"-The Di,chargina
[From the News and Courier.]
COL11BIA, S. C., December .-The
news of a correspondence between At
torney General Pope and one of the
clerks of the engrossing department
produced a great stir in "official cir
cles," if they be so termed. Mr. T. B.
Butler, a clerk appointed by the solici
tor, was officially notified of his remov
al this morning. Attorney General
Pope wrote to him as follows:
D.AR SIR:--It is with great personal
regret that I feel it to be a duty that I
owe the State, whose servant I am, to
dispense with your services in the de
partinent above named.
Permit ie on parting with you to
bear tvsiinony to your personal worth
and 0f1iiency in the discharge of the
duties of the position now occupied by
Y. J. PoIIE.
The following answer was returned
to the Attorney General:
DEARt SIR:-Your notice dismissing
ie from the position of clerk, which
was kindly given me by Solicitor
Sebunipert, and held by me in the en
grossing department for the past two
years, has been received. I will obey
the mandate of the Attorney General,
but before retiring I would be glad for
you to indicate the reasons for my re
moval, as you say it is not on account
of inefficiency, but, on the contrary,
that you bear voluntary testimony to
Ty ")ersonal worth and efficiency" in
the discharge of my duties.
OFFICE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL,
COLU3MIA, S. C., December 9, 1890.
Mr. Thomas P. Butler, Colum&a, s. C.
DEAR SIR:-In answer t - your letter
of to-day, asking the grounds for my
removing you from the office of clerk
in the engrossing department, permit
n to state, that I remove you from
oftice from a sense of duty to the people
of this State. I believe it due to them
that no office shall be bestowed on one
who has so recently jeopardized, by his
political conduct, the best interests of
our whole people. While I am Attor
ney General no Independent need ap
ply for office, and no such an one will
be knowingly retained in office by me.
Very truly yours,
Y. J. POPE,
Attorney General of South Carolina.

Attorney General Pope is supposed to
refer to the fact of Mr. Butler having
opposed the Tillman candidates in
The policy laid down by Attorney
General Pope does not find in this case
its first expression. It was plainly out

COLUMBIA, December 10.-The big
gest sensation of the present political
season of grace is being developed here
to-day. In fine it was remarked that
Mr. T. B. Butler, who was dismissed
from office as a clerk in the engrossing
department of Attorney-General Pope,
will to-morrow, or as soon thereafter as
he shall obtain legal advice, institute
legal proceedings against the Attorney
General for such dismissal. Mr. Butler,
it will be remembered, inquired of the
Attorney General the reason for his
dismissal, to which he replied as fol
lows. [See letter above of December
A young lawyer of Charleston sent a
letter to a friend here to-day, directing
attention to the following, which will
be found on1 page 717 of the General
Sta tutes of Sou th Care>li na:
Section 2552. Whoever shall assault
or intimidate any citizen because of po
litical rights and privileges guaranteed
to every citize~n of the U~nited States by
the Constitution and laws of this State,
or for such reason shall discharge such
eitizen from em ploynment or occuplat ion
or eject such citizen from a rented
house or land or other property, such
person shall be deemed auilty of a mis
demneanor and on convict ion thereof be
fined not less than $50 or more than
$l,000 or im]prisonled not less than
three months or more than one year, or
both at the discretion of the Court.
The sect ion comes under the title con
cern ing elections. Some of the lawyvers
hold that the law applies only to em
p)loyees, such as field hands or tenants,
but there are strict constructionists
who hold that the law applies to Mrr.
Butler's case. In all probability there

"That statulte was meant to apply to
