ABiBEVILLE, S. C,, August 4.-Sen
ator Tillman spoke hero to-day before
an audience of a thousand people.
His speech- lasted one hour and
twelvo minutes. He was in line trim
and made an excellent impression.
The crowd was generally with him.
He discussed the dispensary, the
tariff, Clemson College and his per.
sonal record, He thought that the
dispensary was the best solutior. of
the liquor question and he favored
State control. He admitted that the
dispensary law had been badly man,
agod but blamed the mariage0tit
and not law. He said the.v,W'board
of control had done,jadroharm to the
.*!Ci-n^e Sitmonton had. He
said that the board should not bo
elected by the legislature.
He defended the Latimer bill and
said he introduced it in the sonate
boforo Latimer introduced it in the
house. He said he was glad of one
thing, that Gonzales lost a whole
night's sleep from fear of the bill
passing the house. He said that
Simonton was more tyrannical than
Judge Bond was at his worst.
Ho indorsed putting Charleston
under control of the metropolitan po.
lice. Ho disclaimed taking any sides
in the senatorial race and said that
all the candidates were his political
In answer to a question he dis
cussed the tariff and defended Mc.
Launrin's position on the same. He
said that lie voted for everything that
MLaurin did in that bill.
Ho said that he was opposed to
protection but that if there was to be
a steal he wanted to get the share
duA to his constituency.
He said that lie was the only farmer
in the United States Senate and that
he represented thirty million of farm
ors in the country. He said that his
speechu in the senato were as popu
lar as tney are at home; that when
ho rose to speak the cloak rooms
were cleared and the galleries filled
and that he "threw rocks" there just
as he did at home.

WValbalIa, Aug. 2.-The campaign

rosontativo citizens. Messrs. Irby,
Evans and McLaurint spoke in the
crder named. Both Irby and Evans
were severe in arraigning and rid
iculing McLaurin's' record in con
gross, especially his votes and
speeches on the Dingley tariff bill.
Thleir usual charges of Republican
and protection tendencies against
McLaurini were answered ini detail
by the latter durimg his speech of

the various charges of sinister pur

This afternoon the expressions of
citizens from different setions of the
county show McLaurin to be far

said Ellerbe, did right in not re

Evans said he'had to ap)ply the po

To the Peoplo of the State and
Wo -gain bring before you our
grievances and hope that in the
namo of justice and humanity you
will turn a listening car to our ap
peal and sympathize with us in our
deplorable condition. We have long
looked forth with a prayerful hope
to the final end of mob violence, but
to our sad dismay we are compelled
to note an increase for the worse, not.
We -thought that the late consti
tutional convention, by the lynch
law clause, would greatly relieve our
State of such occurrences, but just
last week Gray was brutally put to
death in Laurens county. Chris
Harris, if he has not been over
taken and murdered, is now being
hunted by a raging mob, and dis
order and confusion are rampant.
We appehl to the Cbi3tlan-hearted
and law abiding citizens everywhere
to exercise all their power in pro
venting the reign of mob violence,
for at the hands of mobs the inno
cent perish as well as the guilty.
In the struggle we hope the assist

The Lynching Problem.
(Dalton, Georgia, Argus.]
Mrs. l3eulah S. Mosely, editress
of the Rome Georgian, the state or
gan of the Georgia Woman's Fed
oration, jumps into the discussion of
lynching for r-ape with one of the
best editorials we have yet seen on
the subject. The article is so full of
sense and vigor, that the Argus hero
repio.kees it in full:
"It is not our policy to touch u pon
things sensational andl vicious, but
when the daily papers teem with ac
counts of brutal assaults upon help-.
less women and innocent children,
the very rooks should cry ailond
The constant agitation of what moa
sures shall he taken to prevent
lynching should be changed to what
punishment will prove the no'st ef
fectual terrorizer of the fiends in
carnate who need only opportunity
to inflict upon defonicolcss purity
outrage and shame, to be far imore
dreaded than death, and infinitely
more horrible than any torturos
that could bo invented for tho por.
"It has beCOmO the custom of
northern papers to doprecato wholo.

England in this matter has meddled.
If it bo a stigioa to protect women
and cl ildron, w ho areo poweorless to
protect themilselves, then all wo havo
to say is, tiat the south may bo
proud of her reproach. Of her climes
and nationa may not seo the neces

"This is just as potent a condition
as that firo burns, and as you iiust
koop yourselves from 1ho flame if
you wish to go unscratched, so the
negro must keep himsolf humanized
or Olso expet to be dealt with as wild
"So, instead of so much discussion
upon lynching, the pros and cons of
which have the tendency to imbuo
those brutes with tho idea that some
tim, somo how, the cant of 'law and
order' will servo to savo them from
immedinto justice, it. would btter
servo tho onds of just ice for the crim.
inal, and humanity for the victim, if
thero could :e a littlo moro talk

Mrs. Moseley is eminently correct
-specially in the advocacy of a
quick undt si-ecly pulishilent for
the rapist. He ought to bo lynelbd

would exterminato dangerous wild

such lyncbngs occur in Georgia, and
hopes it ma.y never see ti.e day when
they will not occur-until the crime
of rape is noi longer known. And
the Ar-gus wvould not object to see
ing public sentiment so amendl thme

sympathize wit.h thle br1utal rapist, or
who try to kocop him fromt the just

The effTor;s of our Governor, our
