to believe that my recommendation
would have great weight with him.
I could not recomminond a man unless
Ie was lit for the offico and willing
to accept it. T knew Gen. Hampton
was well qualified to discharge the
duties of postmaster of Columbia,
but I did not know whether he would
accept the plIce or not. From what
was said at the time a home was
givel Gon. llamptol. I suppose
such a salary as that of postmaster
of Columbia would be peculiarly ac
coptablo to him as placing him in a
p)osition of independence. But I
know lhe was 01(d and cherished bit
torness toward all wvho were in any
wvay responsible for his retirement
from the United States Senate, and
[ did not intenid to have my friend
tendoer an oilice to GJon. Hampton
anid have it rejected. So I told Sen
ator McLaurin I would make my
"I then talked the matter over
with three Columbians and 1 asked
one of theom to ascertain if Gheneral
11amptAon wvould accept appointment
as postmaster of Columbia, and to
make it perfectly plain that abso
lutely no conditions wvould be at
tached to tihe appointment, but that
if ho accepted it lie would not he
trammelled in any way and would
be consideored absolutely free to sup.
port or cppose whom lhe pleased.
It was an honorable offer, couched
in courtons terms. It was meant as
a recognition of Hampton's worth
and past services to the State, ser
Vices whlich, hlowovor, did not entitle
him to election to at representa
tive oflice, if is views were at
.variance with those of the people
whom hoe would have to represent.
The gentleman saw Ghen. Hampton
andl the reply was as courteous as
thle otTer, being that Ghen. Hampton
would not accept the appointment.
There had been no suggestion of
"buying" Ghen. Hampton in the
offer and there was scorn in its re
jection. So his words as reported in
todlay's State are a surprise, to say
the least of them. Neither McLau
rin nor McKinley offered an ofice to
"In conclusion I desire to state
t 'he information of my offer wvas
nc.a given the public by me. I told
McLaurin of what I had done and
he said it would have given him
pleasure to have used his influence
in behalf of Ghen. Hampton to secure
him Ia office without pledge or con
dition. I said nothing about the
matter to anybody else and am at a
loss to understand bow it became
public. "George B. Koester.

The Little Child.
A simple-hearted child was lie,
And lie was nothing more;
In suninier (lays, like you and mne,
IIe played about the door,
Or gathered where the father toiled,
The shavings from the floor.
Soneti.nes lie lay upon the grass,
The same as you aid I,
And saw the hawks above him pass
Like specks against the sky;
Or, clinging to the gate, lie watched
The stranger passiug by.
A simiple child and yet, I thinik,
The bird-folk must have known,
The sparrow and the bob)olink,
And claimed him for their own,
And gathered round him fearlessly
Wh'len lie was all alone.
The lark, the linnet, and thle dove,
The chaffinch and the wren,
They muust have known his wvatchiful love
And given their wvorship then;
They must have known and glorified
The child who died for men.
And whenm the sun at break of (lay
Crept in upon his hair,
I think it must have left a ray
Of unseen glory there,
A kiss of love on that little brow
For the thorns that lie mutst wear.
