THE CUSSING OF THE PRESIDENT.
A Great Storm Raised Because He Said He
Would Rather See a Senator
"In Hell."
[Charleston Post.]
A great storm has boon raised by
the report that President Roosevelt
had told a Tennessee delegation the
other day that he would see one of
the Tennessee delegation in Congress,
l presumed to be Senator Carmack, in
hell before he would do anything to
please the member. The story of
the President's strong language was
reported by very reliabLe newspapers
and with considerable circnmstan.
tiality. The remark quoted was
made to a party of prominent Ton
nesseeans, chiefly Congressmen from
the Qtate, who called at the White
Hou?e.to ask some favor of the Pres
ident. After the report had been
p60ed in tbe New York Times, in
Wl(ii dit appeared first, President
Rogsevelt had the correspondent of
tha>aper summoned to the White
Hound and given a complete denial
of the report, which the correspond
:ent sent to his paper.
Senator Carmack does not accept
*the denial. After it had appeared1
he was interviewed by a correspond.
.ent of the Memphis Morning News,
to whom he stated that the story of
the President's cussing had come to
him from Representatives Richard
son and Gaines and he said: "Of
course I knew that these gent.lemen
told the truth and no man's denial
can make me believe otherwise."
*That is a very straight issue with
the sincerity and veracity of Mr.
Roosevelt.
The Memphis Morning News
makes the.following excited editorial
comment on the whole matter:
"The Whiite House has been turned
i<oa fish market,-and the Pre&sident
of the United States imitates the
foul mouthed blasphemy of a fish
wife. For the first time in the his
tory of the republic the chief e'xecu
tive, supposed to be the personifica
tion of.the national dignity, falls to
cursing like a drabl when addressed
inhis official capacity on an all'air
of 'state. Moreover, the exhibitio.n
of billinugsgate was purely gratuitous,
agd the man at whom it was aimed
was absent. The country has come
to a pretty pass when a United States

duty, shall be called to task at all by

shall be abused in such brutal and
blasphemous fashion. And this is

There is no use for anybody to fly
into a fit because the Presiden' has
done a little cussing. The une of
strong language does not'utterly con
demn a man. It depends on how
the language was employed. And
certainly it was remarkable that a
Tennessee newspaper, which should
have the name of "Old Hickory"
ever fresh in its sanctum, should hold
President Roosevelt to be the first
President to swear about at his ene
mies. But for all that it was unbe
coming that the President should
reaeh out of his way to speak in vio- E
lent language of a Senator, though
that Roosevelt should do this is not a <
surprise.
HB EOUND HER BOY.
One of the Experiences Which Dr. Von
Roth Had In Charleston.]
[News and Courier.]j
Dr. Von Roth, the palmist, who
has 1)e0n givinrg exhibitions during
the week at the Charleston Hotel,
had a novel experience yeterdlay.
Many' persons who have consulted
him have marvelled at his ease in
answering questions and in solving
mysteries. An elderly won an, who
had evidently been weeping, aisked
for an audience yeeterday morning.
"I am anxious to find my son,''
she saidJ. "He has been aiway from
home for months, has not written a
line and I fear.that some great mis
fortune has over taken him."
The woman wanted to know how
much it wvould cost to get a line on
the absent boy. Dr. R{othi gave his
figure and informed the woman bhat
lie would1 charge nothing if lie did
not r.ucceed in locating the soni.
It may sound1( like a wild dreami,
thnt thie palmist. wvhispered to the
woman that her boy was in Savani
nab, and he gave suchi mninuto in
struct ions that she was able to comn
munticate withI hun by telegraph.
Late yestorday afternloon D)r. ltoth '
was readinig t he palhn of another
caller, when the door suddeniy op,en.
ed( antd an envoelope, contiin g I
mioney, was hurriedly thrown in.
TIhe niext mioment there were souinds
of hurrit'.l feet in t he hall. It was
thie muot her of t he wvanderintg boy.
Shie had reeived ani answer to her
wanited1 to maske goodl.
"Oh, I didn't want you to see im,"
she saidl. ''You know too muich. i f
y'ou could( find( my boy you1 must be
the devil, and I'm not. taking any
chances."

B1YAN;DISCUSSES POLITICS.
Ic Makes General Statement as to the
Situation- Fidelity to The
People's Cause.
Coj. W. J. Br:'an while in Toledo,
Dhio, this week was prevailed upon
:o discus's politics. He told of his
recent visit to New York and added
hat the people in thaL State knew
ess_about politics than they do in
le west.
"They. asked me about Judge Par
cer," he said, "and I told them I
3ould say nothing until I knew his
ittitude on public questions. They
Inswered that he was a judge and it
vould not be proper for him to dis
ius political topics."
"What do you think Mr. Hill in
ends to do?"
"Well, I think Mr. Hill is tossing
penny to see whether he or Judge
?arker will run. The trouble with
he plan is that Hill has an old pen
iy that he has tossed so often that
ie doesn't know which Bide is head
md which side is tail."
"What have you to say regarding
he record of congress?"
"What congress has (lone is easily
Iscertai[ned. Find out how miuch
here was ini the treasury before the
ession began and find out how much
here is now. The wonder is that
hey did not take it all."
Mr. Bryan declined to discusB the
>robable issue and candidates in the
iext nat.ional campaign, but when
isked to make a general statement
ws to the situation lie said:
"Political success depends on two

NEGRO'S HEAD CUT OFF
First Fatality on the Skyscraper Now Go
ing Up in the City of Columbia.
(State, 11th)
The first victim in the work of con
structing the great steel Robertson
building was WVilliam Dixon, a color
ed laborer, who wars instantly killed
yesterday morning by a falling eleva
tor.
For m?omths theecrowds in the streets
have watched the 'house wvorkers,"
as5 the expert steel men are called,
hanging high in the air bolting to
gether the massive girders, or ascend
ing into the almost-skies on the der
rick loads, but as yet no casulty had
occurred among thre hundreds of
workers until yesterday morning.
The accident occurred without any
previous warning or spectacular feat
ures. Swift and terribie Lihough~ it
wvas the deatih was nevertheless comn
monplace whon compared with a falU
from the topmost story, or a man
crushed by a p)onderous picco of
steel.
Dixon, a laborer, stopped for a
moment and paused in his wvork to
look down in the collar to speak to
some one there. Heo half lay on thre
sixth door, his head just projecting
over the shaft. Suddenly, without
warning, the elevator descending al
most noiselessly anid with t he terrific
force of unimipodod gravity, struck
the back of his head, crushing it
horribly arnd breaking his nock. The
elevators are used for 'onivenienee ini
carryinog b)uildi[ng material to the
various floors, andic when unloaded
are dropped to the ground floor to be
again ladeui.
The men 'rear at hand wore st ruck
aghast with horror at the awful sight
as thle negro met. his doom11. Almnost
instantly, however, orngineecr raised
the elevator anid the liinp, nerveles
form, its head hanging loose anid its
features crushed into a pul py mass,
was lifted out. D)eath had been in
