THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.
We present to our readers this week
the full text of Governor Tillman's last
annual message. It was a big under
taking to set up the whole thing in our
office in addition to the regular work
on the paper but we felt that our readers
would like to have it in full and it
was the only remedy.
There are several things in it to
which we desired to refer but we are
crowded for space. We ask every reader
of this paper to read the message care
We are free to confess that it is a
disappointment to us. It is written
in good style and strong English, as
all of Gov. Tillman's articles are, but as
a State paper it has none of the ele
ments you would expect to find in
the message of a statesman. It is a
vk:'tisan document and reads more
like the deliverance of a politician who
was pleading his cause before the pop
ulace than the message of a governor
of a proud State dealing with the af
fairs of state which look to the welfare
a weal of all the people, regardless
of factio6l lines or bias. Only that he
could have risen above his prejudices
and remembered for once that he was
Governor of South Carolina, and not
of the reformers, whose duty it was to
abuse and fight all those who do not
follow the movement blindly.
But read the message for yourself,
and then form your own conclusions.
Dr. Pope says be will have a sena
torial committee to be brought down
from Washington to look into the al
leged frauds in the recent election.
There is no good to be accomplished by
any such purpose or plan. It is too
late now for our own people to be talk
ing about breaking up our own election
and registration laws. Of course if
there was actual fraud that is another
We cannot endorse the treatment of
-Dr. Pope by the Legislature. We be
lieve he was defeated even by an honest
count and we further believe he de
served defeat, but he received a very
respectable vote and claimed that he
had evidence tosubstantiate his charge
of fraud and petitioned tfe Legislature,
the -proper tribunal, to hear his com
plaint. He was not given polite atten
tion. The right of petition, which is
guaranteed by the constitution, was
denied him. In the House of Represen
tatives no one could be found to present
his petition and while it was presented
in the Senate, it was thrown out with
out consideration. It seems to us that
the proper thing to have done would
have been to give him a hearing and
then if he could not have sustained his
charges why he would have been
silenced. It was too a serious a matter
to have been treated as it was.
If all the expense were figured out in
the enforcement of the dispensary law
we do not believe the showing would
be made of any actual profit to the
State from monopolizing the sale of
whiskey.Count the cost of litigation and
other expenses incurred in the enforce
men.t of the law and we believe the
State will appear as the loser. Nor has
it decreased drunkenness or the ccn
sumption of liquor, but it has caused
lots of bad feeling.
The whiskey quesgion is a big pro
blem and is not yet solved by any
The information from Columbia is
-that there will be nothing revolutionary
in the Legislature and that the mem
bers who are there this year give evi
dences of having at heart the best in
terests of the State and will do nothing
rash. This is encouraging and we hope
and believe is true. This is no time for
extreme men. We need all to pull to

Swell as our editorial in reference to it,
but owing to a rush of matter that

week. If he imagines for one moment
that we would not publish an adverse
criticism of any thing we may have
said he is terribly mistaken. We are
perfectly willing to have our positions
attacked and will always give space to
such articles. All we ask is that it be
done c.ecently and in order. If his rea
son for bidding The Herald and News
adiew "now and always" is because
his criticism did not appear he does us
an injustice and we know he will have
the manliness to admit it. We made
no reference to him or his article in
our last issue because his article did not
appear. If he imagines that anything
we said last week was in any sense
meant as an evasiv-e answer of what
he had written he is again terribly mis

when the evidence is in. We have
never refused any one a full hearing
so long as he clothed in courteous and
polite language what he had to say.
Josh Trump should not jump at con
clusions until he bas all the facts before
him. There are two sides to every
question, and all the virtue and all the
justice and all the right is not likely to
be exclusively on either side. Now,
Josh, on the square, in view of all the
circumstances, do you not thin k that
you have been too hasty, and that you
have done us an injustice ?

Gov. Tiliman's message in full this
week and it is about all we can well
handle. The last officiial act of Gov.
Tillnian was granting to Constable
Bladon, who was convicted of murder
at Spartan Lurg a full and free nardon.
Our St. Philips correspondent is un
duly alarmed.' There must be more
truth in the little quotation we made
from the Greenville News than we at
first realized. The Herald and News
wants peace among the white people of
South Carolina and has been conserva
tive in its course and in its criticisms,
but if any one of our reformer friends
thinks that peace is to be restored by a
servile submission without even the
right or privilege of criticizing the acts
of our public officials such a one is
mistaken and sadly so. The minority is
not such a very small one either. The
Herald and News for the past four
years has gone in the primaries and has
always supported the nominees as sug
gested by the primary even though the
nomination was by snap judgment and
ring methods. Is doing this we did
not surrender our right to criticize.
We have asked time and again what
benefit the reform movement had been
to the masses of the people and so far
no one has undertaken the task of
telling us. How much has your taxes
been reduced? In what way have the
people at large been benefited? We
mean the masses. These are practical

Gov. Tillman when he *arted said he
wanted no office. He has twice been

United States Senator. The former pays
a salary of43,500 a year and the latter
$5,000. Office seekers, why the woods
is full of office seekers. But that is
alright. We are making no complaints
about that. But let us not talk so
much about the beauties of the reform
movement unless we can show practi
cal results. And when we remember
the promises that were made let us not
go into hysterics if some cruel anti
should now and then compare promise
with performance. It is legitimate to
do so, and no one should complain of
legitimate criticism, especially when
we considr the many beautiful prom

Col. Ellison S. Keitt has an excellent
article in this issue on the financial
question. He establishes the fact that
the silver dollar is the unit of money.
There are two or three errors. The
sentence beginning, "The selling bonds
for gold," should read: "The selling
bonds for gold in a time of profound
peace and the increase of the interest
bearing debt on the plea of increasing
the gold reserve is a fraud on the people
and a God send to the moneyers."

throwing taunts and jeers into the

excitement by holding and critisizing,
magnifying and condemning the pub

[Special to Herald and News.]
COLuMBIA, S. C., December 4.-The
first week's session of the General As
semibly is always uneventful, and this
year less even than usual has occurred
to lend it interest. This is not with
out a certain significance. It probably
indicates that, unlike the sessions of
the last four years, it will not be char
acterized by radical or novel legisla
The fact is that little is left for Re
formers to do. Scarcely one of the
multitudinous measures which they
set out to accomplish has been left un
done, and the feelling appears to pre
vail that once more the whole State,
politically speaking, is about to return
to a humdrum existence.
In the Senate the familiar form of
Lieutenant-Governor Timmerman, of
Edgefield, once more casts its Uncle
Sam-like shadow from the rostrum.
ROTATED INTO BETTER JORS.
Ths membership of the House is
very much the same in character that
it was last year. From BeaufortCoun
ty the Conservative of last session is
replaced by a Tillmanite. Otherwise
the relative strength of the two fac
tions remains the same. It is noticea
ble, though, that the Tillmanites have
lost a number of their strongest and
most influential leaders, not by defeat.
but because they have been promoted
to higher stations with better salaries
attached. Jordan, of Aiken, Kirkland,
of Kershaw, and others are now in the
Senate. Watts is a Judge and Frank,
the youngest, is the only remaining
scion of the Gary clan on the floor. It
is evident already that while the Re
formers are not without men of brains,
they lack leaders of trained ability and
PROSPECTIVE REFORM LEADERS.
J. Belton Watson, of Anderson, ap
p -ars to be developing as a leader. J. E.
Breazeale, of Anderson, is again chair
man of the judiciary committee, but
there is a strong likelihood that he will
inherit Judge Norton's shoes, though
his opponent, Gen. Earle, of Green
ville, is said to have 76 votes already
Among the new members certain to
have weight in the body are Judge
C. P. Townsend, of Marlboro; Col. Mc
Sweeney, of Hampton; J. Ed. Ellerbe,
of Marion, a brother of the Comptrol
ler; and Dr. C. T. Wyche, of Newber
ry. Frank B. Gary succeeds Yeldell
as chairman of the committee on ways
In the Senate appears the same ab
sence of leadership. Senator Stan
yarne Wilson, to be sure, is still in his
seat, but it is scarcely to be expected
that since his election to Congress he
will go out of his way to exert himself;
Senator Finly, of York, is concededly
a strong man of indomitable energy
and will, but he has shown too much
conscientious independence and disre
gard of partisan affiliation to be re
ceived as a leader by the administra
tion. His personal strength in the
Senate is great as he is known to be
reliable and straightforward.
Col. D. K. Norris, of Anderson, a
new Senator, is a man who is already
an acknowledged leader. Nearer than
any other he will fill the shoes of W.
D. Evans, who was while a Senator
looked upon as the Senator to whom
the Alliance Senators always lent a
TiHE CONSERVATIVE LEADERS.
Among the Conservatives, Sloan of
Richland and Buist of Charleston are
returned, and they will hold the pres
tige which long experience and splendid
ability have given. "Joe".Barn well
has taken the seat of the brillIant
Smythe, of Charleston, who resigned
from ill health, and Barn well is one of
the most gifted and talented lawyers in
the South. He is a man of remarkably
striking presence, classic features, and
is an extremely effective and powerful
speaker. It is predicted that he will be
ome a conspicuous figure in public
NOT TO BE CONTROLLED BY THE GOV
This will not be a good year for ex
treme legislation. Neither house will
be controlled absolutely by the Gover
nor. Governer .Evans, without any
disparagement of his ability, cannot be
said to have the strong personality of
overnor Tillman who "made every
body keep out of the road." Heretofore
the reformers have all been Tillmanites,
but it does not by any means follow
that now they will all be Evansites.
It is a matter of common report that
there are numerous Reformers who
while disposed to resent any attack on
the Reform Movement, will be slow to
join in any projects which have dis
incty an Evans flavor. Wounds suf
fered in the last campaign, skillfully
bandaged and dressed as they were,
have not been healed and it is not as
sured that they ever will be.
TH E SQUELCHING OF POPE.
So far the one event of the session has
been the squelehing of Dr. Pope. In
the House the Doctor could find no
member to present his petition asking
a official investigation of the election
frauds, and wben the Speaker stated on
Thursday that he bad the petition, but
was without authority to read it, Mr.
Earle's mnotion that it. he beard was
voted down. In the Senate the com
mittee on privileges and election, to
which it had been referred, reported
that the petition had no merit and
without a dissenting voice the report
was adopted. Dr. Pope still insists that
he will be heard from and declares that
congress will send a committee to
South Carolina to examine into the
gross election abuses.
IMPORTANT LEGISLATION PRlOPOSED.
A number new bills have been intro
duced. Mr. Patton, a brilliant young
member from Richland, has intro
duced a bill to permit the licensing of
retail liquor establishments. This
bill includes many of the provisions of
the dispensary law with tbe State con
trol feature eliminated. Mr. WV. A.
Shrock, of Camden, recently published
several letters outlining the plan.
Mr. Burns, of Oconee, has intro
duced a bill to make it a misdemeanor,
punisbatble with fine and imprison
ment, to get drunk. This bill has ex
cited a good deal of merriment. but ti
question is frequently asked, "Wherein
is it more criinal to sell whiskey than
to drink it."
Mr. Watson, of Anderson, has intro
duced a bill which provides that a
person charging over '7 per cent., on
any loan shall forfeit the amount of the
loan and double the amount if action is
Mr. Ott, of Union, has introduced a
bill requiring railroad companies to
settle losses of freight within tbirty
days, under penalty of paying iouble
the amount of the loss. This bill is ex
pected to throw railroad mein into a
state of alarm.
The divorce bill has been introduced
as usual and gets on the calendar (it is
not likely to get off) several days ahead
of time. For some unaccountable rea
son the (dopr tax bill has failed to show
up, but it will doubtless come out of
its hiding place before another week
has passed. "Citizen" Josh Ashley
will probably see it through.
Senator Harrison has presented a
bill to levy and collect a tax on dis
tilleries. The tax proposed is $50) a
quarter. It has been unfavorably re
Representative Hlammet is the author
of a bill to change the day of sales by
the Master and Sheriff of Greenville
County from the first Monday in each
month to the first Tuesday. Mr. Ham
met also has a bill to amend the pen
Mr. Ott also has a bill to make two-_
degrees of murder, giving tt.e Judge
power to sentcute a man to lite im
prisonwent when the jury bands in a
recommendatiou to nerey.
The great fiht of the session will
be pitched doubtless oi amendments to
the displnsary a(t of 1893, or other
legislation relating to that act's enforce
ment. The friends of the dispensary
will endeavor to enact a metropolitan
police bill for a number of towns and
cities or else to empower the Governor
when be deems advisable to assume
control of a town's police and to ap
point policemen with the speciel object
of suppressing blind tigers. The
chances are that neither oft hese propo
sitions will have votes enough to get
through the Senate, but the debates
over them will be interesting, to ex
press it mildly.
The Greenwood County bill has
agaid been introduced. Numbers of
lobbyists are here working persistently
for it. It is understood that the dele
gations from Laure,ts, Abbeviile and
Edgefield, from vhich counties it is
proposed to carve Greenwood, are
united against it, and the Greenwood
people will have a heavy task to over
come the unfavorable sentiment which
this will arouse.
Representative Ashley has intro
duced a bill to organize Honea Path
A bill has also been introduced to
form Saluda County out of portions
of Edgefield and Lexington.

Resolved, That we see with regret the reso
lution of the State Board of Wxaminers re
questing the Legislature to repeal all laws
exemptngg graded schools and special school
districts from the control of the State Board
of Examiners. We regret this becau-e we
know that if such request b9 granted it will
result in the disintegcration or the very best
mana.ged and most progressive schools of
the State; that It will entaIl great expense
upon the patrons of said schools; that it will
necessitate a complete change or currtulum,
which curriculum now correlates with those
of the colleges; that the statement that these
schools are supported by the State cannot be
substantiated as far as Newberry County is
concerned, since not more than 30 per cent. of
the funds of these schools comes fron, the
public funds. For the above reasons we re
quest our Senator and Legislators to op
pose any steps which will tend to a change of
the present status.
