The aetion of Major Mlieah .1enhins
in refusing to necept the 1w,vord which
was to have been presented to himil by
Pr1esidenlt lloosevelt, upon the luVita
tionl of Col. 'I'illma tn, will le commcrl(i
ed1 throughout, the State. As a soldier
and its a gentleman ho could not have
done otherwise. H-e was atcaptaill u"der
Col. 1Zaosevelt in the battle where
he displayed such conlspicuous cou rage
as to (!ill forth from his chief and
frietli the words engraved upon tbe
seahhard of the sword, which words
contributed iore than any other one
thing towards bringing his bravery be
fore the people ofth is ecun try, and that.
man, his former chief, is now 1'resident
of the United Stattesand Col tmamnder-in
chief of its armies. lie took the right
course and his actionl was what wias ex
pected of'him 1v the people of Soith
Carolina. Col. 'illmatn lls received at
just rebuke for an indignity oll'ered the
I'resiient, and Major Jenkins ailts vin
diented tLe State by lis action in re
fusing to necept t,hc" sword.
Th'ei sword pro-wntatitollnmatter ha'
been made ia great dal l( more of than it,
deserved. It was at private; m atter" be

sword and Mlaj. Jenkins. Cot. .Jas. ii.
Tillian had no ant,hority to act in thi
unat ter in the enpacity of Lielltenla nt
Go0ve'n or. If he desired to withdraw
the invitation extended to I'resident
IRoosevelt to present the sword to Malj.
.1enkinls that was a 1 matter bet ween himl
and the others who purchased it and
the Stiate had othing whaitever to d(1
with it. But by sending lie telegran

capacity 1as a state ollicer it brouglIt tie
State in lit least to those who do not iun
d'r tai the eirrunstainces. We hope
the incident is closed. Of course I'resi
