BEN TILLMAN'S GOOD WORK,
LAROE SUMS TO BE Rft0OVERED
FROM FEDER AL IGOVENMENT.
Chief Clerk Gantt Claims that as a Result
of Senator Tilimaan's EffSrts South Caro-'
lina wil Reeive Between 050.000
and 875 000, and Over $100,000
of the Valid Debt of the State
will he Wiped Out.
(Columbia Cor. News and Courier.)
Chief Clerk Gantt has made the
following clear explanation of the
situation as to the claim of the State
against the national government,
about which some correspondence has
already been had:
The successful result of Senator
Tillman's first effort towards the
collection of the old claims of South
Carolina against the United States
is very gratifying to State officers.
The promise of an early settlement
of at lest a portion of these claims
is due to Senator Tillman, who.has
been hard at work upon them several
years, and who would have suc
ceeded in his effort without the
"Black" papers, as those documents
gave but little light upon the alaim,
which has been allowed. It is a
claim for unpaid interest upon funds
advanced by South Carolina in 1812,
and consequently no vouchers other
than the records of tb-war depart
ament are neessary to-sustain our
tention. It is simply a question 4f
computing interest. The Act which
Senator Tillman succeeded in having
passed declares that these olJ pay
mente shall first be applied to the
settl6ment of ten or fifteen years'
interest, which had accrued at that
timi, -while 'any amount remaining
unpaid at that time shall be deemed
a new principal upon which interest
must now be paid.
WHAT TE STATE WILL GET.
It is impossible to determine what
this will amount to without access to
the date of these payments and the
original account. Senator Tiliman's
computation fixed the amount at
abot: $300,000, which should give
South Carolina_between $60,000 and
* 5$000 after settling in full the
* .South Carolina bonds held by. the
kudian trust fund 6f the federal gov
ernent. These bonds aggregate
$125,00)0 at their full value, and un
der the bond redemption laws of
Sout Carolina were refundable at
50Ooents on the dollar inito4he new
'4gper cents. The United States
refused 'this settlement and de
manded full face value, repeatedly
* threatening suits upon them. Thus,
after paying full face value and
acerued interest, there is a promise
~not only of wiping out over $100,
000 of the valid debt of 1lhe State,
but of securing quite a nice som to
the State treasury besides.
No commissionwlllbepad toany
one in settlement of the claim, and
the State will get every dollar s
c ured. Senator TillgfTan made this
a condition of his work for the meas
ure' and the results vindicate his
MORE TO FOLLow.
There are other valid claims
against Uncle Sam, which would run
up his debt to this State to nearly
two million dollars if interest should
be allowed to the present time, and
it is hoped that Senator Tillman and
the tespresentatives will contmnue
their efforts for the settlement of
these claims in full.
A Good Manager.
It was admitted that the woman
was truly a remarkable one. She
succeeded in-living far better than
-woulir seem to be possible on her
"But how does she do it ?" asked
the ignorance one.
"She's such a good manager," an
swered the knowing one.
"Knows how to make a little go a
long way, I suppose.''
"Well, not exactly that, but she
knows how to make him provide
properly for the family. You see,
she bpends the money he gives her
for luxuries, so he just has to pro
- vide the necessities in addition.
* There's always something needed,
and she's always broke, so that forces
him to scrape up some more cash.
In that way they manage to live
reaHy well. Oh, she's a wonderful
manager! Not one in a thousand
could do as well on his income as she
"And the result?"
"Oh, I believe something has been
said about his being forced into
bankruptcy next week, but she has
managed splendidly, don't you

It is an old and honored custom d
by which the Chief Magistrate of theI a
State sets apart one day as a day of cl
thanksgiving and praise to the Source e:
of all Life for His manifold bless- e:
ings and fostering care. When in a
the enjoyment of health and happi- o
ness and prosperity we are prone to d
forget the sustaining hand through n
which these blessings come. t]
,As a people we hasw had our trials t]
and hardships, our days of adversity a
and of bitter strife, and through a
them all we have triumphed because a
of our trust in and reliance on an t
During the past year we have en
joyed peace and prosperity. The.
labor of the husbandman has been a
rewarded by abundant harvests and 0
all business has prospered. We r
have been spared pestilence and I
plague, drought and flood. In this t]
day of prosperity we should not for- a
get the source whence it comes. We o
should, as a people render thanks to v
God for the blessings which we en- fil
joy and in the midst of material 1
prosperity strive for moral and spiri- d
tual uplifting; for it is not in ma
terial progress and prosperity that a a
people can claim to be truly great,
or hope to obtain lasting happiness. 0
The gr4atness of a people rests in tj
the character of the individual citi- C
zen, and this character is built upon c
deeds done-deeds which glorify c
God and help lift up and bless our h
fellow men. In no way can we bet
ter show our appreciation of the -g
kinduess and the forbearance of our 2
Heavenly Father than by doing our t
duty to Him, to ourselves and to
our fellow man.
Now, therefore, 1, M. B Me
Sweeney, Governor of the State of
South Carolins, in conformity to the
proclamation of the President of the
United States, do set apart Thurs
day, the 27th day of the present
month, as a day of general%haoks

public offices be closed, and that the
people cease from their ordinary vo

Intereting Incidents of the Civil War Re
lated by "I Uon. Fed," A Member of
Thtird 8. C. Regiment. -
On pages 455 and 456 of the An
Duals of Newberry Captain F. N.T
Walker tells something of his ex- N
perience as an enrolling officer at8
Newberry and of Gen. Cheatam and .
Stewart being at Newberry. A right
funny incident occurred to Captain
Walker while the above named Gen
erals were with him; Captain Wal
ker had called out the 16 year old
boys and these with a few crippled4
Confederate soldiers were organizld
into a company known as The Sup
porting Force, who were mounted. ~
On Monday morning when every one
was expecting Newberry to be at
tacked and while the troops were in
line of battle at Hunt's (now Crot
well's) cross roads, and while Cap- Pi
tai Walker was holding a coneil of
war with Gens. Cheatam an'd Stew- N
ard one of the members of the sup- to
porting force (a boy just past I6)
walked to the door of the offic a hold.
ing his horse by the bridle and caled
Captain Walker. Captain Walker
thinking it was a courier with dis
patches hurried to the door, whenA
the young man asked him to hold L
his horse for him as he wanted to A
knock around town awhile Of -
course Captain Walker dt-elined but
the joke was on him The youog
man said Capt Walk'er was all the
man that he knewaHnd he tbought be
ought to bave held his horse.
"Y on. Ford."
An Amusing indent.
A funny little incident, not down
i the program occurred at the Mary
,ad Industrial Exposition grounds,
altimore, recently, which created
ie wildest merriment among the
nployees and show people. A half
ozen big monkeys of the Blake dog
ad pony ciircus were let out in
aarge of an attendant for a little
iercise. They chanced to pass the
atrance of the Crystal Maze, and
pparently seeing- a dozen or more
f their kind reflected through the
oorway, in its myriads of mirrors,
ade a break for and rushed inside,
ke attendants in hot pursuit, then
ae fnn began. On every side they
pparently saw hundreds of grinning
imians of their own kind, and the
ay they chattered and yelled, amid
Le wildest antics, threw the entire
opulation of the midway in parox
sms of merriment. They tried to
limb the mirrors, butted their heads
gainst the glass, climbed over and
ver one another, and behaved gene
ally like star inmates of an Insane
tsylum. To add to the confusim
beir attendants went in after them
nd got lost in the mystic windings
f the maze, and monkeys and men
rere alike in a grand mixup. Noth
ig half so fanny had ever occurred
n the midway before, and the inci
ent rudely shattered the Sabbath
niet that was prevailing. Finally
rith great difficulty, the monkeys
rere rounded up and taken one by
ne to their respective cages. All
ie afternoon they continued to
hatter to one another, evidently dis
assing in monkey language their
irious experience in the Crystal
Visit the Elks' Carnival, at Au.
