[Special to Nons and Courier.]
Washington, July 2. - Senator
McLauric continues to have a pull
on the administration. At his in
stance Jefferson F. Richardson has
boon appointed by the president to
be postmastor of Oreenville, South
Outside of Charleston and Colum
bia, Greenville is one o the largest
cities in the State and the postmas.
ter at that place is a very desirable
position. There had boon a lively
contest over the appointment-con
seq^ently Senator McLaurin's friends
are looking for favors to come his
way. Before the appointment of
Mr. Richardson was announced at
the White House postoflico officials
freely predicted that Senator Mc
Laurin's man would be selected,
thus giving color to the report fre
quently heard hero to the effect that
Senator McLaurin is to have a voice
in the distribution of federal patron
age in South Carolina.
LOADING A FOURTH OF JULY OUN.
Senator McLaurin is here, prepar
ing the Fourth of July oration which
he is to deliver at Spartanburg on
Thursday. The junior senator from
South Carolina is still in an aggres
sive mood and he will probably give
utterance to certain expressions
which will call f~rth further com
ments from Senator Tillnan. Sona
McLaurin's Spartanburg speech will
be his first utterance since his sensa
ti,nal tilt with Gov. McSweeney's
refusal to accept the double-barrelled
resignation of the two South Caro
THE SENATOR's HOPES.
Senator McLaurin says he has
given a great deal of care to his
Fourth of July speech and he will
endeavor to show that there is an
other side to expansion than mere
cpmmeroialism. "It is not merely a
question of dollars and cents," said
he. "If that were all I would not
endorse, and certainly I would not
endure all that I have endured and
sacrifice all that I have sacrificed.
I can show that there is a moral and
religious side to the question which
ought to c 'mmend it to all right
thinking and high-minded people."
When asked if he expected to make
many converts he replied, "I do. I
believe the day has passed when the
Democratic party will be dominated
by Populist theories and Populist
leaders. I think it is not, only possi
blo, but [extremely probable, that in
the Democratic convontion the same
thoughtful, conservative element will
prevail, and thus the way will be
paved to victory.
. DELIEVEs IN 5UBsI1DIEs.
"I read with a great deal of inter
) est," continued Senator McLaurin,
"the recent interview with Senator
Clay, of Georgia, in which he said
that the time had come for the Dem
ocratic party to drop Populism and
win thne confidence and support of
the business element of the contry.
The trouble with Senator Clay, how
ever, is that he does not go far
enough. He does not carry his posi
tion to a logical concelusion. He be
lieves, aIs I do, that there are great
possibilities for the South in the
markets of the Orient anid there he
stops. I go further and say that if
we are to have commerce we want
the ships to carry it. Therefore I
am for the subsidy bill, which Sena
tor Clay opposes."
idn. I'LAUIN USES AN UoLY woRD.
Referring to the story that he had
.. opposed the appropriation for the
Charleston Exposition, on the
grounds that the passage of the
bill would have added too largely
to the prestige of Senator Tillmen,
y enator McLaurin denounced the ro
port as an.infamous lie. He said: "I
never heard of the story before, but
anyone who makes that statement
utters an inifamous lie." It was re
Ported that he consulted Speaker
Henderson and Senator Hanna,
with a view of defeating the appro
priation. "I never spoke a word
about the matter to Speaker ionder
sOn in my life," said Senator Mo
Laurin with emphasis. "And I never
mentioned it to Senator Hanna, ox
copt to ask him to help it through.
It is true I was not prominently
identified with the original effort to
have the appropriation passod. Sena
tor Tillman, is a member of the com
inittee on appropriations, introduced
the bill the first. day of the session
and took charge of it in the Senate.
Mr. Latimer was its recognized Po)011
80r in the House, and Congressman
Elliott, in whose district Charleston
is, was allowed to have but little to
do with the measure in the House.
But the statement that I opposed
the appropriation or wanted to se it
fail, or endeavored to secure its fail
ure, is untrue in every sense of the
TILLMAN CAUGIT ON THE FLY.
Sonator Tilliman, by a strange co
incidence, happened to be in the city
at the samo time with senator Mc
Laurin, although the two Senators
did not happen to come together.
Senator 'I'illrnan passed through the
city on his way to Nebraska, where
he is to lecture. As to the future of
the Democratic party Senator Till
man has his own views on that sub
ject. He says all this talk about get
ting rid of Populism is mere t'mddle.
Populism has kept the Republican
party from being a great deal worse
than it is and the Democrats have
acted wisely in adopting all the prin
ciples of the Populists which could
be properly and prudently incorpora
ted in our platform. It is stupid to
talk of the Democratic party being
an enemy to business interests. We
did endorse the free coinage of silver,
but events have proven that our con
tention as to the nQed of more money
is correct, for the prosperity which
the country has experienced is simply
due to the large increase in the sup
ply of gold through the discoveries
in Alaska and South Africa.
'ILLMAN SEES TROUBLE AHEAD.
Senator Tillman went on to say
that he does not believe prosperity
will continue. - "We are riding now
on the crest of the wave," said he,
"but it will not be long before we
get into the trough. Hard times
will come and then what are the Re
publicans to do? They have enacted
a high tariff, and given us a gold
standard, and when they find that
neither of these will avert disaster
they will seek to Iind some other
remedy, the result of wvhich will be
to help the rich without regard to
the poor." The Senator said he
could not see a presidential candidate
in sight, but lhe added that he is in
favor of some one who has been H'en
titfied with the party during the past
A soLDIER REwARDED.
Wade Heiskell Westmoreland, of
Adlanta, was notified today by the
Secretary of War of his appointment
to a lieutenancy in the regular army.
(Ca~pt. Westmoreland served in the
Spanish war as captain in Col. Ray's
3d immunes, with a record of eight
months' active duty in Cuba. His
appointment today was due to the
personal efforts of Representative
Livingston, supported by many of
the moat influential men in Georgia
and South Carolina. He will be or
dered before an examining board
within the next two weeks to qualify
for his commission.
Capt. Westmoreland is a member
of one of the distinguished families
of Greenville, South Carolina, and
received his military education at
the Citadel in Charleston. During
the~ past nine years he has resided
in Atlanta -and has been actively
identified with local military organi
zations. He was among the early
volunteers at the outbreak of the
Spanish war, and in recruiting his
company half of his command was
composed of the Naval Reserves
from Savannah, who, failing to get
into the naval service, volunteered
for military duty. One of Capt.
Westmoreland's strongest endorsers
was Col. T. S. Wylly, well-known in
Georgia military circles.
