[Special to The State,]
Clemson College, March 9.-Whei
Senator Tillman, who is here attend
ing a meeting of the Clemson boar
of trustees, was asked this mornin
for an interview regarding hi
attitude the Senate in reference t
the Cubon, Philippine and Charlestoi
exposition matters, ho was dispose<
to be contemptuous and indifferent
saying he was -tiredo answering thi
jokes and attacks of those dail:
papers which had always oppose<
him and whose stuff the people o
the State seldom regarded seriously
PorhaDs the fact that the man of h<
pitchfork had not then breakfaste<
had same influence on his naturallj
However, after refivcting that thi
people of the State might want somi
information the senator consented t<
talk though briefly.
"The question of why the Demo
cratic minority did not resist th4
Cuban and Philippines amendmeni
has been set forth very'clearly in th<
congrestional record. It is not to b
wondered at that these newspapel
editors have taken the wrong view
as they depand on the Associatec
Press synopsis which is very mongr(
necessarily, and often colored to suii
"In a consulation among the Dem,
ocratic senators there was a differenc(
of opinion as to the advisability oJ
filibustering.. The Philippine amend
mont was altered to our satisfactior
-as far as any such scheme coul
be made satisfactory-by prohibiting
the sale of land, lumber, mines, etc.
and fordidding any. permanent fran.
chises, so that carpet-baggers wh<
may be sent thers to administer a so
called civil government will be ver3
much hampered in their purposes to
loot the islands.
"So far as the Cuban amendmeni
was concerneo, the minority waF
hampered by the fact that our mem
bers of that committee, Messrs. Mo
ney and Teller, and the latter wai
the author of our Cuban war pledge
had acquiesced in a large measur(
with the proposed legislation. The)
had secured a much more moderate
and satisfactory programme than had
*originally been proposed by the Re.
*publicans, and while no entirely
*satisfactory they assured us that the
Republicans in an extra sessiora
where they would have a free hand
would be still mere exacting in thoiu
"The Democrats and their alliei
among the Populists and Silver Res
publicans were, therefore, confronted
with this situation: The next con.
gross, being overwhelmingly Repub
lican, with larger majorities in boti
branches, could be relied on to dt
Mr. McKinley's bidding, and in ad
dition to carrying out the origina
* programme in regard to the Philip
pines and Cuba, there was almost
certainty that it would have passoc
the ship subsidy bill. For in addi,
*tion to this a protracted filibustei
causing an extra session would havi
given them an excuse to change th<
roles and provide for cloture. As i
is, Senator Platt has introduced
resolution looking~ to snch a change
I think it won't he carried now, but
it certainly wouldl have succeeded ii
we had acted as my critics desired.
"So we as a minority had to con
aider whether we could ultim'itel~
resist the proposed betrayal of Cubi
and exploitation of the Philippinei
successfully in the extra session, ani
it appeared wiser to fully expose the
infamies of the two amendments ani
then allow a vote.
"I did what I could," Bald the sen
ator concluding as the breakfast bel
rang, "in a legitimate, decent way
to get the oppropriation for Charles
ton, and there was practically n<
opposition in the senate. The op
was in the house."
. "I grave no ledges and receive
none," continued Mr. Tillman, warm
ing up a bit and putting on that
fierce look of his "All of the 'hon.
orable' and 'reliable' correspondents
who have been quoted to prove the
contrary are Republicans who are
quick to flyblow Democratic senators.
Their lies would not be paraded in
our papers except that it is done by
those who have always hated and
lied on me."
"Shall I say that y .u are pleased
with the turn of affairs in Anderson ?"
"Oh, yes. I am glad for the im
pression it will make outside the
4 State, to see the brave, firm, sensible
3 attitude taken by the court and the
) jury. For a still better effect along
this line I would like to have seen
indictments at once handed out. We
want the outside world to see and
know that we are able atd wi 'ing to
deal with the matter. Outside in
I terference from the United States
r government is ready to come in, if
we fail to do our full duty in stamp
ing out the infamy and punishing
the wrongdoers." W. H. McCaw.

MUCH PLEASED WITH
WHAT TIE RV5V. MIt OiNE 1AYS OF
Careful I niPp,e Ins Made of Vlo"ritable and
Vorr.cinal issa,ti,alotut-W..rk in
Behalf of 1Is1mtgee41t ai4 Ill.
[The State, March (6]
Rev. and Mrs. A. S. Orne, who are
traveling through the country, in
specting charitable and corrvectiontl
institutions, in the interest of indi
gent and ill-treated children, have
prosecuted their "mission of mere%"
faithfully during their stay in Colm
bia. Upon being Hsked yesterday as
to how the institutions here compared
with others visited, he expressed
himself emphstically: "They all
rank very high, and I have fewer
suggestions to make thim in most
cities and counties. Of course," con
tinued Mr. Orne, waxing warm over
the subject so dear to his heart,
"your most promising institutions tire
the Epworth orphanage and Indus
trial Home school.
"Yes, I do believe prevention is
more Christian and much cheaper
than poor houses or prisons. I have
been a student of sociology for 25
years, and I find that heredity and
environments breed criminals-poor
houses and prisons confirm them.
The offspring of one abandoned girl,
trac,ed through six generations, num
bxred 600, and all were either crooks
or criminals, insane or idiotic.
"A young man married a pauper
wife in 1840. In 1880 thirty of
their offspring had been continual
county charges, and when out of
poor house or prison lived by beg
ging or stealing.
"A father, mother and five chil
dren spent the winter of 1880 m the
poor house. All are now serving
sentences in penal institutions.
"From 95 to 99 per cent. of our
criminals (and they have increasod
75 per cent. during the past ten
years, our population increasing only
21 per cent.) come from this class of
"One hundred thousand children
have fathers in prison; 2,000 person
killed by mobs; 20 have been burned
during the last ten years. Fourteen
thousand murdered in 1899, against
1,000 in 1887, and 0,000 snicides
A majority of both classes came
from neglected children. Lincoln's
and Garfield's assassins, and nine.
tenths of 1,000,000 tramps are of
this class also.
"Not 5 per cent, of the 1.000 poor
houses and 1,800 jails have regular
religious services, more than half
none at all. In places cursed with
drink and contagious diseases we have
found 500,000 homeless children
(80,000 abandoned last year). Born
by no volition of their own will, no
control whatever over the first tena
years of t heir existence in thbis wicked
world, no choice whether they shall
be trained as Christians or taught as
criminals, beaten and banged about
in an atmosphere of drunkenness and
dishonesty, creatures of circumstances
-how can their course be other than
"It is because of these things that
God has sent us out to speak in thun
der tones to the people that the per.
petuity of our civil and Cbistian in.
stitutions plead for prevention.
"Children who are born and
brought up in the slums are self.
raised, and being self-raised, they
tend to evil. We want settlements
in the by-ways, and by that I mean
we want to go down into the slums
and teach those of the tenement
houses cleanliness and godliness.
W'e want to teach the children to use
their hands as well as their heads.
We want to place them in a position
to be able to help themselves. We
want to give them an opportunity to
bend their inclinations to their
wishes, and make of them useful citi
zen. and industrious artizans. There.
in lies all hope for the reformation
of the street Arab and alley waif."
Mr. Orne and his wife travel, and
have traveled all over t he count ry, for
25 years, working as they are working
in this city. While he (lees a great
amount of work in all nanner. of
prison reform, he and his good wife
devote most of their time to elorts
to inaugurate movements looking to
the institution of "juvenilo courts,"
aLd the entire separation of juvenile
prisoners from the more mature
offonders. Tho juvenilo courts are
courts where nothing but children
are tried, and instead of being con
lined in prisons with the older of.
fenders are confined in soparato es
tablbishmonts, tried seprately and
thus onhancing the possibility of re
forming them and having them
brought up in the right path.

u ;on at Mmphis from this State,
for the vptertins an ' d others going to
the unveiling of the South Carolina
monument t Chickamauga park,
and for the movement, of troops ex

The official choico of the route
was made by Gen. C. I. Walker of

organization of Confederato vetorans,
and a member of the monument

military departoont of the State by
request. His (lecision in the matter
has been announced in the shapo of
the following letter to Division Pas
senger Agent R. W. Hunt, a copy of
which has been sent. The State by
Gen. Walker for publication:
Charleston, S C., March 9, 1901.
Mr. R. W. Hunt, Division Passenger
Agent, Southern Railway Co.,
Charleston, S. C.
Dear Sir: From my position as
commander of the South Carolina
division of the United Confederato
veterans it is my duty to select the4
route for the transportation of the
veterans to the Memphis reunion.
The South Carolina Chickamauga
commission, of which I am secretary
also directed me to make the same
arrangements for transportation v4eto
rans and visitors to the unveiliig
ceremonies; and Adjt. Gen. J. W.
Flo d also requested me to arrange
ithe route for movement of the State
volunteer troops to the unveiling of
the Chickamanga monument.
I have duly considered the advant
ages of the varions routes offering
their services, and I am sure that
the greater facilities to aill co[ncerneed
going and coming, for both events,
are offered by your route (Southern
railway), and I beg to advise that it
has been selected as the official route
to carry the veterans to the Mem.
phis reunion, May 26, 1901, and
veterans, State volunteer troops and
visitors to the unveiling ceremonies
of the South Carolina monument at
Chickamnanga May 27, 1901.
1. will confer with b ou further as to
the time of the leaving of trains, so
that you can announce the same.
Yours very truly,
C. I. Walker,
Commander S. 0. Div. U. C. V.
Coin. S. C. Chickamauga Mon. Corn.
The Southern proposed to arrange
every detail for the comfort of the
veterans on this trip. The best
c>aches in the service of the system
will be furncished, and representa
tives of the company will accompany
the veterans and troops on the ont
ward trip. Arrangements will be
made for a stop i f at Chickamauga
park. so that th)e largest number
possible may attend the unveiling
ceremonies there. A schedule wi.l
be arranged keeping the veterans
and all others who go on the road
the shortest possible length of time.
The Southern runs all the way
through to Memphis, Tenn., where
the reunion will be held, and the
trains can thus be handled with
greater dispatch than if they had to
move over several different roads.
The Southern officials promise to do
all in their power to mako' the trip as
pleasant as p)ossible for t be veterans,
thn soldiers and the civiliansanike.
