[Nows & Courier, Oth]
The appointing of white Demo
crats to offices hitherto hold by Ro
publicais is considored by fsomo to
be a method adopted by Sonator Mc
Laurin to spread Ropublican bacilli
in this Stato. It remains to bo seen
whethor or not thoso germs will
provo of a contagions naturo. So
many motives aro aseri)Ld to Sena
ter McLaurin for the part ho is now
playing that it is of great interest to
hear tho viows of somono on tho
outside, and especially is this the
caso where the speaker is the Hon.
James 1amilton Lowis, of Seattle,
Washington, a ifan peculiarly fitted
to criticise such a movement. The
Hon. Mr. Lowi spent. yestord.y in
this city, and doring tho Inorning he
wats interviewod as to his estimate of
Senator McLaurin's alleged move
ment. Ito i -besitatingly intimated
that lie considorod thi Senator a
'bogy' and considered that the intro
duction of R1epblicanism into this
8tato would oventually mean the as
condancy of the negro. Elevating
the Philippines to tile dignity of a
province of the United States, which
is the struggle the Republican party
was making, lie said, would be the
means of introducing cheaper labor
into the South, of tho erection of cot.
ton mills on foreign islands, so that
cotton goods could be manufactured
cheaper than hero, and the final
crippling of the Southern mills. The
-Ion. Mr. Lewis has very decided
views as to tho treatment of the
Philippines, and in the course of his
talk he declared that the very thing
Senator McLaurin is after would
menan the loss of much trado to the
State of South Carolina.
111 OPINION OF M'LAUIN.
"In criticising Senator MeLaurin
I do so as an onlooker from Venice,"
he said. "While in Congress I was
thrown considerably with Sonator
Tillman, but I know comparatively
nothing of Senator McLaurin as a
man. But in the movement he is
now carrying on I do not waste any
time in calling him a bogy. The
people of this Stato should realize
that the Rtepubhcans are after noth
ing more than the vote of a republi
can party. The negro is being ig
nored because the lRopublicans rea
lize that the white people of this
State will not consider him as a fac
tor in politics. But Senator McLau
rin makes a mistake in trying to be
gin a white Republican par-ty 'in
South Carolina, for- as aure as he
succeeds it will mean the ascendancy
of the negroes. something that the
people have been trying to light
down ever since 1876. Were it not
for the negro votes in Ohio and Illi
nois there would not be such a large
Republican majority. The negro
votes in those States are nourished,
and if the negro is not taken into
consideration in South Carolina ii
building up the now party so much
sentiment will be brought to hear up
on the movement by the negro voters
in the border States and some of the
Northern States that the South Car
olina negroes will find themselves in
the ascendancy. And I will go fur
ther and say that if that time does
come we will see the organization of a
negro party. Presidont Cleveland
and Senator Hlanna did not strike a
bad plan when it was suggested to
place white men in such positions in
the South as postoflces and put the
negroes in charge of the internal
revenue departments. In that way
white men would come in contact
wvith offcers more frequently than
they would with the negro office.
"There is one thing I would like
to hear Senator McLaur-in answer on
the stump: 'How is the negroes going
to be got rid of ?' They are in politics
for two reasons. First, for some griev
ance againt the white people and,
socondly, for appointments. You
cannot keep them in any kind of a
party unless they receivo appoint
"The question of territorial expan
Sion is not one of economics. I con
sider, too, that it is not how it will
effect the Constitution but our insti
tuticns. The Constitution is an ex.
pansive instrument; it should be al
lowed to grow. On this point I am
at varianco with the Democratic
party. While tho question of expan
sion is one of great importance I do
not think Democrats should split on
it and form an altogether difforent
party. Senator McLaurin would
teach the peoplo of this Stat that
acquisotion of the Philippines would
be the means of a woiderful increase
of trade for the South. That is an
egregious error. On the other hand,
it would moan the removal of the
negro as a laborer, because cheaper
labor would be imported, and it
would mean the introduction of cot
ton goods from Japan and the Philip
pines, which could be tiold here cheap
or than they could be manufactured.
TH111E HoUrH WOULD SUFFER.
"That would conio about in this
way. If the islands are attached
American ingenuity and money will
flock to the island.. Machinery will
follow, becauso labor over there is
dreadfully choap. The natives, seek
ing new fields, will flood out this field
and, I might add, white labor in
some instances. Growers of cotton
in the South will naturally expect to
ship the raw material to the new is
land(, and the cotton cannot be ship
pod, but you must bear in mind that
conditions will then be such that cot
ton will be grown on the islands and
the neighboring countries and im
ported froim India, so that by compo
tition American will be too expansive.
The samo will be the case with manu
factured product. Transportation
charges will be heavy and, labor here
being not as cheap as in the islands,
there will be no sale for American
cotton goods. In fact they can be
manufactured so cheap over there
that they can be imported to this
country and tiold cLieapor than goods
manufactured at home. Thet, truly,
would be a dreadful state of affairs.
"If the islanda are acquired there
will be no way to levy duty and there
can be no exclusion law. The out
come will be that thousands of Orien
tals will rush to country this and in
time supplant much of the labor we
now have. Take the negro labor in
the South, for example. The negro
has three virtues--to raise cotton,
tobacco and rico. Many of them
migrate to the North, but it is only
-a question of time before they'drift
hack South. They are, as a rule, a
worthless set and indolent. Now at
present Northern capital, seeing the
advantages of Southern labor in cot
ton mills, is moving South with the
mills; coming to the cotton fields.
With the introduction of the cheap
foreign labor new and larger mills
will rise like magic in the North and
the Southern industry will be crip
pled. Then this labor will take the
p)lace of the negro in the field. There
is no doubt about the capability of
the foreigners to work in this coun
try. The recent silk strike up North,
whore 400 operatives wore thrown
out and as many Japanese brought
to the country and put in their places
illustrates the point. The labor
unions cried that the alien labor
laws were b)eing violated. The Ja
panese ministers reminded us5 of the
$76,000,000 of contracts placed in
this country that could be broken if
the imported labor wvas kicked out.
They stayed an1d have since proven
that they are hard and intelligent
MR. LEwIs' soLUTION.
"My solution of the Philippine
question is that we should lift the
tariff on exports from this country,
ask for a coaling station and a free
trade treaty, and bid the foreigners

expense of maintaining a govern
A WORD ON LABOR UNIoNS.
.The Hon. Mr. Lewis during his
conversation showed familiarity with
tho labor question, and when asked
what h thought tho outcome of the
labor unions vould bo ho snid: "To
somlio extent I sympathizo with the
labor inions. Thoy tend to educato
the workingmein and placo thom in
better circumsttiuces, but the fault
that the uidwis make is that they

That will not work. But frequently

wnY IIE WENT TO sEATTLE.
It has been nearly fifteen years
now since the Hon. Mr. Lewis lived
in this part of the country. lIo was
born in Augusta and beforo ho
reached his majority he was practic
ing law in Savannah. The way he
caie to drift to Seattle was very po
culiar. He had decided to leave tbo
South, but several days bofero he
made the start Ie was cent here on
business. While in the office of Col.
U. S. Gadsdon, of the Charleston
and Savannah Railroad, some one
asked him where he wan going. As
yet he had not docided, but he re
plied "Donver." Col. Gadsdon then
said, pointing with a stick to a largo
map hanging on the wall: "This is
going to be a great country,(with the
point of the stick at Seattle.) Why
don't you go thora?" The young
lawyer thought seriously of the
suggestion and finally announced
that he would settle in the distant
"On my way out there," he said
yesterday, "I stopped in Kansas
City and one night I was introduced
to President O'day, of one of the
large Western railroads. I was very
young and ambitious, and possessed
a treble voice. The president asked
me why I did not go to Springfield,
as that was going to be the coming
town. 'Well, sir,' I said in my
changing voice. 'I might go there,
become president of some railroad
and make a half million, but .i would
always think that if I had gone to
Seattle I would have been worth a
million.' "Well,' ho replied, 'you've
got gall enought to make it. You'd
better go there."'
sTaIUoLES OF A YOUNo LAwYEu1.
The Georgia boy kept moving un
til he reachod Seattle, the city that
Col. Gadsden had pointed out on the
map. HI-s ambition was still with
him, but his purse was depleted.
For a time he worked as a longshoro
man, defending an occasional cuil
prit in Police Court. While work
ing on the docks he formed his first
opinion of labor unions. There had
been a strike on the wharves and ho
was asked to come into a local union.
"I cannot," he said, "because ILam a
lawyer, an there is a clanse in your
constittition that debars lawyorP,
gamblers and saloon keepers."
A few years after that lie was able
to get into the regular practice of his
profession, and was soon rewarded
and recognized by being elected to
the Legislature. Then in 1882 he ran
for Governor of the State of WVash
ington, but withdrew from the race
on account of a plank in the pl,atform.
Later, in 1896, lie was elected a
member of Congress, and in 1898, at
the outbreak of the Spanish-Ameri
can war, lie surprised his friends by
asking for an appointment in the
volunteer army. He was commnis
