Sumter, August 4.-The picnic at
which Tillman spoke today began
as t pace and uutiy love feast, but
at the end there was lots of ginger,
and the Senator, who bad declared
in his morning speech that the peo
ple were getting along pretty well,
and he would say nothing to raise
old issues or revive old animosities,
and protested against the heavy
coats of "butter" that had been laid
on him by Dr. H. 'T. Abbott, the Re
form Senator from this county in
1890, in his introductory speech
boldly asserted in the afternoon, in
reply to a speech of Ropresentativo
E. D. Smith, that he was no goody
good peace and unity man, and that
there had already been too much of
that sort of thing.
Apart from his introdcotory re
marks in reference to the "bolaud
ing and bopraising and buttering,"
he had received at Mr. Abbott's
hands, and these were the most
amusing of his speech, there was
nothing very strong or bizarre in his
speech, which was only forty min
utes long. le descril-ed the condi
tions prevailing in the trust-cursed
and boss-ridden North, where wealth
inconceivable is concentrated in the
hands of a few and whore the people
are fooled and suffor more than any
where else. He ascribed this con
dition to the decay of Americanism
in the North, and the conquest of that
section by the foreign element that
is corrupt and servile, and that, soll
ing its votes, lends itself readly to
the uses of the money power and
bosses who seek to establish an in
dustrial slavery. The pe'plo there
are not free, and the men sent to
Congress are the puppots and tools
of the bosses. Under Republican
rule not even the representatives
from the South are froe, for with
Reed Speaker they had not oven the
poor privilege of declaring their
viows in Congress.
It is only since the war with Spain
that the Southern men have had a
Hho)w, aind tho war was wvorth all it
cost if nothing else was accomplhish ed,
but the South is only twenty against
lifty million, and 1 am asked what
we are to do. I tell them, "We will
and up in the middle of the read
- ight them, so help us God, uin
d'tv redeem tihe country and

and liberty.'% ydtde up of a home
The South i f0t%scendants of Rev
geneous people, Mae they are the
olutionary sires, .asintr
only true Amoricagr mth country.
I cell the people 06the North that
the South has the seed corn of lib
erty in its people, and that threy will
have to come to us whlen they wvant
it, for they have let theirs rot.
What do they say? They admit
that I speak tire truth, and that they
T1he pension frauds that flood tire
North with money and help the peo
ple to endure tire harpships of ten
cent, corn were treated to a dose of
caustic. NcKinley's Atlanta speech
offering to have tIre Government
take care of the graves of Confed
erate soldiers wvas referred to. "I
told them we wanrt nro hrelp to take
care of our graves until you (do
something for our 01(1 soldiers wire
are living in poverty." It is all a
big steal with those pefople, and I
have told throm that I know it is a
steal, but I wanrt my share, and I
If thie Democrats woro in power
there would be no stealing, but as
long as tire Republicans control
there will b) no change, and tire
South should have a share.
Trusts. thre pnmgnny ofre Re
publican party, were handled with
gloves off, along the usual lines.
The Philippine war was discussed
at some length. His opposition to
the acquisition of the islands was
based primarily on the fact that the
natives are of the colored race, and we
have more negroes now than we care
to he troubled with, but also on the
ground that to annex them would be
a breach of faith after Dewey's com
pact with Aguinaldo, and again be
cause the islands produce sugar, rice
and cotton, which would come in
competition with the products or the
McKinley's policy wa9 severely
criticised and the unauthorized pros
ecution of the war was denounced in
The da'Igers to be feared from a
largo standing army were depicted
in a strong light. The army now is
nothing but. a brooding ground for
jobs for political henchmen, tho
whole Philippine business is a fraud
and a sham, and McKinleys talk
about duty and "matnifesit destiny"
is stuff, and some others who talk
the sane way are hypocrites who
turn my stomach.
As for the preachers who patted
McKinley on the back, God help
such preachers. Bibles on the point
of the bayonet., religion at the mouth
of the rifle. Christianity that, is in
culcated by shooting the convoits.
The solution of the Philippine ques
tion was not given by Senator Till
He likened the administration to a
man who caught a wild hog by the
tail and wanted some one to help
him turn it loose. The only way out
of the difficulty ho could see was to
turn out the Republicans and put
William J. Bryan at the helm, and
he would turn the hog loose imme
diately and leave the Philippines to
run their own affairs under the
American protectorate, they to refund
the $20,000,000 and set off coaling
stations for the United States.
FIREWORKS IN THE AFTERNOON.
In the afternoon Congressman
Stokes made a speech and then Rep
resentative E. D. Smith was called
to the stand. Ho proceeded to rub
off the "butter.-'
Senator Tillman replied in a
speech nearly an hour long that had
all the earmarks of an 1800 cam
paign meeting. He repudiated the
demand that he discharged his du
ties in Washington and run State af
fair: also. He said he would be a
candidate for re-election and would
take a haind ini the next campaign,
stump)ing every county in the State
in support of the dispensary if nieces
sary. He would lick the opponents
of the system out of their boots or go
down with its ruins. He asserted
that the dispensary was not intended
to be a moral institution, but a place
where people who wanted to drink
could get all they wanted of good
quality and the State recein the
It was forced on him, anyway.
He found the devil loose when he
wvent into office and lie did not at
tempt to chain him. The State had
to choose between prohibition and
the dispensary, anid as the Prohibi
tionmsts were a set of hypocrites and
cowards, the choice fell on the dis
ponisary. lie also wvent back to the
time the dlispensary constables made
a raid1 in Sumter. IIe said lhe elect.
ed honest, sober, Christian men as
cons5tablles, and when lhe sent them
to Sumter to r-aid Morris's blind tiger
they wvoro mobbed and rotten-egged.
Thben lie saw lhe had to fight the
devil with fire, and ap)pointedl mon
wvho were honest and had sand in
their craws to stand up and( fight.
Among mm ny other things lie said
that ho was no peace and unity man
and the lines were still here and
would be drawvn. The men who had
formed the old rings and rode intc
office over the people's backs wore
still trying to ride into office arid
would do it if not watched.

(Special to News and Courier.)
Greenville, August 3.-The Peni.
tont 'ary investigation has boon cl.>sed.
The committee is nov itt work pre.
paring its report. It will be sut)mit
ted to Gov. McSwooney, and he will
take such action as lie sees proper.
The sequel will be one of more cases
in court civil, and likely criminal.
The testimony has devoloped two
striking things: Almost absoluto
indifference and carelessness in the
handhlng of the State's aflairs and
business by those charged with such
responsibility, and second, the do
volopoont of the tendency to got
something for nothing out of the
Stato, that is, "alny old thing" at the
State's oxpese. The conl,ittee has
not yet summed up the amount due
the State for "any old thing," con
vict hire and the like, developed in
the testimony. The record thus far
makes up the summary : Admitted
by Col. Neal to be duo by him and
which he expects to pay $3,584.41.
This includes '387.17 for the Fret
well oats, not included yesterday.
Convict hire on J. B. Watson's con
tract, settled by unpaid Ragsdale's
note, $2,000. Interest since Decem
ber 24, 1898, $70. J. B. Watson's
draft, unpaid, held by bank settle
ment for convict hire $2,000. Inter
est on Vatson's draft since February,
18909, $50. Open account of J. B.
Watson for convict hire $2,800.
Total admitted due $11,103.41. This
does not include the $72 for the Till
man carload of bricks, or the laun
dry account, or fertilizers for the
Gubernatorial farms, etc., commis
sary stores and the likow.
The committee hold over today for
the express purpose of hearing the
testimony of Col. Wilio Jones and
Mr. W. W. Russell. Mr. Russell
was sick and could not come, and
Col. Wilie Jones arrived, but his ex
amination did not last three minutes.
He said that the W. W. Russell note
for $600 was a now note, the proceeds
being all placed to the penitantiary
account. This note was not a re
newal, nor did it take placo of any
other as far ats he could recollect.
Mr. Stevensent said that the' comn
mittee would enter upon the record
that it wvould agree if Mr. Russell
were present Ito wvould testify that
the note given by him July 8, 1898,
was an accommodation not.e, signed
by Mr. Russell at the request of Col.
Neal, and that the proceeds of the
note wvent to the penitentiary ac
count, and that the note wvas a now
one, and not given to take the place
C-f any previous note for convicts or
otherwise. This onet(,d the testi
