THE PBERLESS CALHOUN
Tribute to Carolina's Philosopher and
Statesman on the 121st Anniversary
of His Birth by Col. Thomas.
The following is a si LJpsis of Col.
J. F. Thoma' eloquent and impres
sive-address delivered on the occasion
of the celebration of Calhoun's birth
day by the Calhoun Light infantr)
of this city, and read by him at the
educational meeting in Darlington.
Col. Thomas said that in view of
the lateness of the hour, be would be
brief and go immediately to the point.
The occasion was a high one to
commemorate the birthday of South
Carolina's grand statesman. "Dear
son of memory, great heir of fame,"
Calhoun stands today the strongest
character, the most imposing figure
in the brilliant history of our State.
The speakers preceding me have ac
ourately and forcibly sketched Cal
houn's life and character and public
services. I shall restrict myself to
his works and his intense personality,
his striking individuality. The works
of Calhoun are embodied in six vol
umes. Five give a full record of his
speeches, his reports and his public
papers. One, the most important of
all, contains his disquisition on gov
ernment and his discourse on the gov
ernment and constitution of the
United States. By these posterity
will judge him. They compose a mon.
ument to his memory. They reveal a
wealth of deep thought, a force of
logic, a mastery of govornnental
principles, and i sagacity of prophecy
that make Calhoun in statesmuanship
the foremost thinker of his age, rising
far above his compeers, the massive
Webster and the persuasive Clay. I
do not say that Calhoun's scheme of
government, involving the concurrent
principle, was practicable, for I
believe it was not. Based as it was
upon an intelligence and virtue wan
ting as yet in our people-it was
fitted only for a community of Cal
houns. Nevertheless, Calhoun's plan
of government, presenting to the gen
eration a grand ideal, is full of ger
minal truths in the science of politics
that will live forever for the instruc
tion and guidance of the nation and
the constitution makers of the cen
tury. Calhoun was America's Aristo
tIe. Above all, Calhoun was the groat
champion of State rights, the master
ful advocacy of which makes his coro
nal of glory, and the principle of
which was the thing for which Lee
fought, Jackson died an--d our con fed
erate soldiery nobly dared and grani
(dly endured or died --a principle by
no means dead today but which lives
in the frequont decisions of our
su premeo United States court and is a
living factor in an indestructible
union of indest r-uetihin St at es. True,
Calhoun is misunderstood todlay and1
grievously wou nde~d in t ho house eveni
of his political friends. In the north,
he is even called a Cataline, bit, the
truth is that South Carolina's p)eerless
son wvas a grander hero t han any of
Plut arch's men--- Ii rmer t han Cato,
higher thani Cicero, as just as Aria
tides, anid as hard to turn fromt the
path of honor and duty as was the
honest Tlabrici us. T'o compaire Cal
houn to modernu ment, who acquainted
with the life of the muan of iron
miouldls does not know that he rea
sonied like Burke and, to crown it. all ,
died like Chatham ? He was no traitor
but a patriot to the core, loyal to the
union of States, hbut holding a para
mount allegiance to the sovereignty
of the States that created the union.
Consider now, 11he personality of
Calhoun. It. was a happy inspiration
that bade you, young muent of the Cal -
honn Light infant ry, thus to name
Behind the soldier in all history

life, it was his gravily of demeanor,
his wisdom of talk to t he . oung that
lent such a charmi to his blameless
career. TFhe splhendlor of Cal houn's
public life was in beautiful accord
with the purity of htis domsttic life.

ntfyson's legends, well miay young men
nceat him as a mod e of .a e,.11(
lofty wan devoted to duty-deemed
by him and Lee "the sublimest word
in the English language."
I remember, as if it occurred yester
day, Calhoun's last appearance in
Charleston, and I believe in South
Carolina. It was about a year before
his death in Washington. The old
Charleston theatre on Meeting street
was crowded by an audience of ladies
and-gentlemen, representing the city's
beauty and chivalry, and her -reotion
to Calhoun and the principles for
which he stood. The sp9akers on the
occasion were Armistead Burt, repre
sentative in congress, and Senator
Butler and Calhoun.
First, Bust, a strikingly handsome
man, came forward and made a fiery
speech, closing by saying, "Your only
resource now, fellow citizens, is in
your gleaming swords and bright
Judge Butler came next, and while
shaking his ample looks like an angry
buffalo, delivered a forcible argument
in impressive tones.
Finally Calhoun arose and forth
with there ensued a deafening noise in
the theatre. Every one rose. Ladies
waved their handkerchiefs and smiled
their smiles while the men applauded
to the echo. This lasted for some
time. Then all resumed seats and
absolute silence followed. In the
meantime Calhoun had stood erect
and met the Aeuonstration with a
smile illumining his rugged face. He
then began one of his forcible, logi.
cal, able speeches, using the gesture
peculiar to his oratory, a kind of
cleaving the air, as if he were en
gaged in waking that analysis of his
subject peculiar to his genius. Fi
nally after commanding the undivi
ded, earnest attention of the entire
meeting, Calhoun closed in these
words, "Fellow citizens, I see a great
struggle before me in the halls of
congress between the contending
parties to the issue pending, but old
as I am I intend to bear my part in
the coming battle." You know how
the next year he fought the good
fight of his political faith in the
spirit of Saul of Tarsus, and how he
continued the conflict until death
paralyzed his brain, and his strong,
heroic soul passed away.

"Never passed such a night in my
life," said Mr Nathan Beeswax yes
terday as he slipped a cigar into his
face and sank wearily into a chair.
"Fought mosquitoes from the time

their 'r--a-a-bs, cr-a-a-bs, cr-a-a-bs,'

3reation. Before she appeared man
lived in the Garden of Eden. Life
was a lilt. Nothing to do but loll.
Everything was free. Oh b, the
Eiraft that Adam had! Then woman
sppeared. The scene changes. And
mankind has been up against it ever
3ince. Think of it, you lobsterinas

go instead of tempting Adam, Abel
might never have been murdered, t b"
forbidden fruit would not have been
tampered with, and you and I would

"And yet," continued Mr Bees
wax, bitterly, "a Woman's Suffrage

the illiterate man would ask. I might
reply cat fur if I were given to ai y
persiflage. But this is supposed to
be a serious question, although very
few rational men take it seriously.
Woman wants to vote. Perish the
idea. Suppose man should sidestep
and allow woman to run the affairs
of government. Imagine the United
States populated by women ! Fancy,

South Carolina if her hat was on

from Texas to loan her a hair pin,
while the Senatress from Virginia
introduces a bill to regulate the style

Kansas discusses at considerable
length the decline and fall of the
bustle, after which the Senate goes
into executive session to consider the
influence of Lydia Pinkham on the
oomplexion. Doesn't it make your
sars turn pale to contemplate the
possibility of such a contingency ?
"And suppose they were merely
sonceded the right to vote," wvent on
Mr Beeswv'x. "And suppose I were
a canididate for office, with a gay
Lothario with brown wavy hair as my
opponent. WVhat chance wvould I
have, so far as the female vote was
concerned? I may be incorruptible,
impeccable, with a head packed with

NOT A MAN OF BLOOD.
Preston S. Brooks Defended by His Brother.
-Writes at Length Regarding
the Burlingame Affair.
J. H. Brooks, a member of the
South Carolina legislature, has writ
ten for The Star a letter regarding
an interview appearing in The Star
a day or two ago with "an old rae
contour" as to the Preston S. Brooks
Burlingame incident. Mr. Brooks,
whose home is at Cambridge, S. C.,
"It is quite true that Brooks 'was
not at Niagara Falls, chosen as the
meeting place,' and it is equally true
that Burlingame was not fool enough
to expect to meet him there. It is
also true that my brother did think
the 'distance too far,' and that he
proposed to settle the matter at
Bladensburg or some other point
near the city (Washington), which
proposition was declined. With
party feeling so high and bitter
everybody knew that it would be
folly and madness for my brother to
venture through the northern states
upon such a mission. Assassination
was probable in any event, but cer
tain should Burlingame be killed.
"I can't say how true it may have
been; but our southern friends very
generally believed that it was purely
bluff on Burlingame's part, and that,
knowing its safety, ho proposed an
im possible place for the sake of home
ct'pital. Be this as it may, my
