ANOTHER INTERESTING LETTER FROM
AN ANTE ELLUM LAWYER.
This Letter Was Received by Dr. s. G.
Welch rroma Judge Jas U. CrooD,
with Privilege to Publish It

Houston, Texas May 12, 1902.
"Clearly the blue river chimes in its

My dear Spence, this my 78th
birthday I dedicate to you.
Passing down street yesterday, I
saw a handsome young lady, (the
great grand danghter of Newberry,
and of kin to the Gorees) in a lawn
swing, wifh a horse shoe suspended
over her. She was reading and I
laughingly said to her that she was
well protected from goblins and
witches. Association of ideas carried
me back 56 years to another horse
Carwile, in his reminiscences, pays
a fine tribute to G1eo. Guisman, the
teacher of s bai.' in Newberry in
1846. It was a jolly crowd that
formed that band. Alas! Where are
they ? Am I alone left?
"It is almost startling to hear the
warning of departing time sounding
among the tombs, and telling the
lapse of the hour, which, like a billow,
is rolling us onward towards the
grave. Thus we pass away; our
names pass from record and recollec
tion; our history is a tale t hat is told."
But. the band!
"The soul of music slumoers in it s shell

Gn"nman was a master; be was a
learned musician; he did not grind
on in the unemotional, coldly correct
manner some are pleased to term
"the classical," but his was the music
so lovingly called "the sweetest spirit
of all that serve God," "soft as an
angel's rustling pinion, tender as tbe
sigh of thy lady love," sounds of
delicste and entrancing tenderness.
This band was composed of the youog
meii, and was a s.ource of pleasure tc

and made music at the commence

Geo. Gusmani played the violin,
Martin Harris beat the drum,
Priest Pratt played the second fiddle,
His brother Bill went tumn tumn-tumn,

And a very good time had we.
Returning in an improvised band
wagon, they gave a lively concert at
Cokesbury-had a good time there.
Wending their way home, they crossed
Saluda at Island Ford, and stopping
for dinner at the house of a fine,
hospitable old gentleman some 15 or
20 miles from town. (his name I
have forgotten) His house was a two
story one, painted white. While
stretched out on the floor, Oscar
Black observed a picture cut out of
a paper over the door, prodding it he
discovered a horse shoe nailed to the
wall. We hope the old gent was
never afterwards troubled with gob
lins or witches: The band arrived
in town,at night, and learning that
Miss Elizabeth Wilson (usually called
Pass) was lying a corpse, as they
passed down the street they played
a mournful dirge; to this day I often
think of it. She was a most lovely,
sprightly and intelligent girl and
was a great favorite.
On our way to visit wife's nieces
(the Misses Websters) and attend
Ithe reunion U. C. Vs., we stopped off
at Sherman, for three days, with
Hugh 0. Harrington, whom we had
not seen since he was seven years
old; now he is a grand fatber. Mis
fortunes have crowded him, in hav
ing his home twice destroyed, once
by a fire, once by a cyclone; but be
has recuperated, and is prospering;
has a beautiful two story house on
tbe spot the otbers were dest roy ed.
Hugh is a fine specimen of the good
man; his wife cheerful, loving an:d
intellectual. He has five daughters
and one son; the daughters are
s3. Aiy, polisbed and intelligent;
his son we failed to see. He is said to
be an excellent busi,;ess man. W 'e gave
them one of the splendid photograpbs
of Judge O'Neall which you so kindly
sent us, with which they were well
pleased, as they had no good one.
Here we found a sweet home feeling

We marked the days of our visit

I have written much of this good
family, but we were so delighted with
them that 1 could not help it.
At the reunion I found many from
South Carolina, but none from New
berry. I donned a Palmetto badge,
for I love the old land yet.
On our way from the reunion, I
having on a Palmetto, J. V. Daven
port, formerly of Laurens, now of
Dallas, approached me. He inter
ested my wife very much, as he knew
and admired her brother Col. Geo.
Strother; James was with him at
Charleston when he fired the signal
gun at Fort Sumter and at Boonsboro
where he fell mortally wounded.
As Davenport spoke of him his eyes
welled over with tears and his voice
choked. Said be was one of the
best, bravest, most generous and
smartest men he ever saw. For 200
miles he continued to talk of him and
Last Sunday attended the Presby
terian church, Rev. Hayne Leavell,
D. D., pastor. Saw a fine church, a
fine looking preacher, a large atten
tive congregation, heard a fine ser
mon, text Matt. 20th chapter 28th
verse, a fine choir, two male and two
female voices. A volume of music
riled through thbe arches as the large
congregation joined in the singing.
I thought of the difference between
that singing and the sioging in the
old Head Spring church, led by
Thos. Chalmners, i.be precentor, and
Dr. Leavell's grandfather, that noble
good man, Dr. A. W. Chalmers, sit
ting in the corner to the left of the
pulpit and joining in tbe singing as
a matter of duty, but who as to the
matter of tune did not knew the dif
ference between "Old Hundred" and
"Billy in the Low Grounds,'
his deep sonorous voice sounding
like that of a big bullfrog amidst

In 1835 or '6 went to school to

of the boys had killed a big red

Good, kind friend: Many faces of
dear little children look up unto you
today from tbis your home for the care
of tbe fatherless.
You are their helper, their benefac
tor, their earthly all.
Without your help what would be
come of two hundred little brothers
You can give but little, perhaps, but
think of it: Five dollars will provide
for a child, its board for a month, or its
schooling for a yearl Even a dime will
give the child its three meals a day.
Just now we need you. The time
has come when summer wants are mul
tiplying, and even biread is scarce and
ard to get.
A little just now from each of a
thousand friends, would mean a great
deal to these children.
It is a joy to know that you will not
forget us. You never do.
God's blessing is your only reward.
And is not that enough? God's bless
ing and the grateful prayers of all this
multitude of orphans.

SENATOR TILLMAN'S HOi SPEECH ON
A Verbatim Report of the se-nator's speech.
It Is in the Nature of a Justifieation
of His Recent Speech in Congress,
Which Met With so Much Un
favorable Comment fro:m
[Special to News and Courier.]
Clumbia, May 22. --Every one has
gone home delighted with the work
of the State convention. There has
never been such a harmonionis gath
ering. Of course those who are look
ing for office, those who have settled
convictions, but mostly those ho
want to keep in the public eye had
something to say, but there was
precious little talking, absolutely no
feeling, and it was an ideal peace and
unity gathering. Every one seemed
to be in a pretty good humor, and if
what was done was not pretty gener
ally satisfactory no one t.ook the
trouble to say so.
There had been.mutterings all dur
ing the week of opposition to the
proposed change in the pledge. The
committee, however, restricted it to
candidates for congress and the
United States Senate, and in that
way removed some possible objection
to the measure, but all of the talk
about opposition faded away like a
dream. It was so sudden as to be
almost a shock. Senator Tillman
read the reports of the committees.
First, he read the proposed change
in the party pledge. It was adopted
without any one even asking what it
meant or how it changed the present
pledge. Then he read the proposed
plan of changing the number of cam
paign meetings. He looked around
and some one suggested that a
change might be made in the ver
biage. He readily corjsented and
took occasion to say that it was not
his report at all, but the report of thbe
committee, to whom the entire mat
ter had been referred, and upon all
occasions he made it a point to insist
that the reports were those of the
committee, and that he was merely a
member of the committee.
This morning Senator Tillmnan, if
talking said that he was mueh grati
fed with the work done, and, with a
laugh, suggested that everything baw
gone through on schedule time. Pa
renthetically, it may be remarked that
Senator Tillman did not personally
favor the resolutions condemning the
couse of Senator McLaurin. H<

thought it would have been best to
have avoided the issue, but the reso
lution was not referred to the com
mittee of which he was chairman,
and d did not care to have anything
to say upon the question when the
report of the committee was filed
favoring the adoption of the resaln
tions of condemnation.
The only set speech and the one
which stirred the boys up most was
that of Senator Tillman at the close
of the convention. It was done in
Tillman's own way and stirred up
things, as he usually does. Here is
an excellent stenographic report of
the after convention speech:
Mr. President, Gentlemen of the
Convention: It is very late and I am
not like a good many of you who
have had little to do since we took a
recess today, because I was engaged
from the time you adjourned as soon
as we could get together from din
ner continuously until the conven
tion reassembled. There was no
opportunity to get any supper, so I
am tired and really I have no desire
whatever to make any speech. I re
cognize the fact that I am under
obligations to you as one of your
public servants to make reports when
occasion offers as to what is going
on in the national field. I will, there
fore, trespass for a brief wbile on
your patience and present in the very
briefest way possiole such ideas as
may occur to me on matters about
which you might like to hear.
We have passed through two cam
paigns, that of 1896 and that of
1900, in both of which we were sing
ularly defeated as a national party.
The campaign of 1896, following
the betrayal of the Democracy by
the man whom we had elected Presi
dent, found us in a condition of de
moralization and of impending dis
solution almost until that famous
convention at Chicago, which has
been considered by many as a new
Declaration of Independence, or,
rather, its platform of principles and
its work was looked upon by the
Democratic masses as involving a re
turn to the fundamental doctrines of
the party. 1 bis convention declared
its purpose to stand by the common
people and the principles of the fa.
thers. We were defeated by efforts
on the part of our opponents, the
REpublicans, such as had never been
witnessed ini the political history of
this country. It was my fortune
that year to be called upon to work
n the Northen States, and I made
more Dry Goods,
,t completed the

speeches in Pennsylvania, in Oregon,
in Iowa, in Illinois and in Chicago.
I know whereof I speak when. I tell
you that the feeling of dread and
fear among the capitalists, the bank
'ers, the corporations who constitute
the backbone of the Republican co
horts has never been surpassed in
the history of the organization. But
we were defeated. Something like
$17,000,000 subscribed by these un
lawfal trusts went to defeat Mr.
In the last campaign we went into
the fight under conditions that were
well-nigh hopeless. We had just
endied a successful war brougbt on 4
by the Democracy against the pro
test and wishes of the Rebublicans,
and the large amount of money
which was set afloat, $200,000,000
of bonds, andthe tax levy increasing
the Government income to a fabu
lous amount, the victories at Santi
ago and other places in Cuba and of
Dewey at Manilla, left the Democ
racy with practically no chance to
win in the last fight, no matter what
candidate we had or what platform
we might have gotten. But we
fought bravely and, handicapped
though we were by the conditions I
have mentioned polled 6,000,000
votes-our opponents beating us
only by about a million.
We are now brought face to face,
as I understand it, with this condi
tion of affairs: The Republicans are
drunken with power. They are mov
ing forward remorselessly with their
program of imperialism, by which it
is intended that we Americans, we
former colonies of Great Britain,
who threw off the British yoke be
bause we did not believe colonists
ought to be governed from abroad
these Republicans, I say, are ignor
ing the principles of the Declaration
of Independence and the Constitu
tion, and have set in motion machin
ery to subject the Filipinos by force,
after having bought them like chat
tels in the market. They stand
arrayed today in solid phalanx in
tending to perpetuate the American
sway in the Philippine Islands with
the Stars and Stripes waving over
subjects, not citizens; over people
who have been treated with cruelty
such as there is no record of in the
history of bumanity--all in the name
of Christianity and humanity and
liberty! They have organized there
a local government, consistingof five
