The Hampton memorial committee
met in . this city on Friday night.
There were present A. C. Haskell,

The following plan was sgreed upon ;
Every member of this committee will
appoint a county chairman for every
county in his congressional district.
Each county chairman will call to his
aid an advisory committee of his own
selection, and they will appoint some
person or committee in every precinct
or locality, which they deem advis?
able, who will solicit and receive sub?
scriptions to a State monument to
Wade Hamp?n, soldier and statesman.
Of course the county committee will
severally adopt such other methods
and plans as will in their judgment
contribute to a successful result of the
undertaking. The names of the seve?
ral county chairmen will be publish?
ed so soon as reported by the com?
The progress of the work will be
given to the public from time to time,
as reported by the collectors and for?
warded through the county chairmen
to the general committee.
These reports are to be made month?
ly by the collectors to the county
committee who will at once tabulate
and forward to the congressional dis?
trict committeeman who will in turn
forward to Col. Haskell, chairman.
All parties, as soon as appointed,
are earnestly urged to proceed at once
and diligently in carrying out the
object of their appointment, and to
make their monthly reports punctual- i
ly and regularly.- The State, May ll. I
The Bell Telephone Franchise.
The Southern Bell Telephone and
Telegraph Co., will, at the next meet?
ing of the City Council, renew its ap?
plication for a franchise to establish
in this city a local telephone exchange.
Since the original application was re?
fused by Council the Bell people have
undergone change of heart and have
modified the application so that it
now conforms in most particulars to
the requirements insisted upon by a
majority of the people of Sumter.
When the application was first made
the representative of the Bell people
stated emphatically that his company
would never under any circumstances
accept a franchise if to it was attach?
ed conditions reserving to the City
Council the right and power to control
and prescribe the maximum and mini?
mum rates to charged patrons of the
exchange to be established. On this
point the Bell people have arrived at a
different conclusion and in the
application to be presented at the
next Council meeting they stip?
ulate that the maximum and
minimum rates shall be fixed
for a period of five years, and that the
Bell company will not reduce rates
below the rates charged for similar
exchange service by any competing
The questions for Council to decide
when the application is brought up is,
does the city of ST?niter need another
telephone exchange and does Council
desire to grant a franchise limiting
its power to control rates to a period
of five years ?
The proposition the Bell people
now make is much fairer than they
previously made, but it will bear close
scrutiny and no one doubts but that
the members of Council will consider
it well before granting the franchise,
for the Council has the interests of
the community in its care and will
see that no contract is made that may
hereafter be detrimental to Sumter.
Thrown From Her Horse.
Miss MOCK!, the accomplished vocal
instructor at the Institute, had a
disagreeable experience Saturday af?
ternoon last by being thrown from her
horse, near the H. W. Merriam Shoe
Company building. She was riding
at an ordinary pace when a small dog
frightened her horse which sprang sud
; denly breaking the girth, which, of
course, loosened the saddle. Being
j an expert horsewoman, Miss Mood
sprang lightly to the ground, but the
earth was so moist and slippery that
she sank in the mud, but happily un
! injured. She was quickly taken to
I the factory building where after a
wholesale bath there were no evi?
dences of her unpleasant experience,
likewise no evidence of the small dog,
otherwise there would have been
use for a shotgun.-Newton,. X. J.,

A commission for a charter has been
issued to the Sumter Planing Mills,
of Sumter, Corporators: John E.
Whilden and D. W. Cuttino.
From Mr. Whilden we learn that
the Sumter Planing Mills is an off?
shoot of the Witherspoon Bros. & Co.,
manufacturing interests. The mill,
the buildings and machinery for which
are being ejected and put in place,
will be adjoining the coffin factory,
and the members of the other branch?

Chance for a Cadet.
Representative Elliott together with
i other members of the South Carolina
delegation has been notified that a
civil service examination will be held
at Columbia, Charleston and Green
ivlle, on the 17th, 18th and 19th of
June for the position of cadet in the
revenue cutter service, the salary of
which is $500 per annum and one ra?
tion per day. Cadets may be commis?
sioned by che president as lieutenants
after two years sarisfacotry service.
Applicants for the position must be
between the ages of 18 and 25, of vig?
orous constitution, physically sound
and well formed, not less than 5 feet
3 inches in height, of good moral char?
acter and unmarried. They should ap?
ply at once to the United States civil
service commission, Washington, D.
C., or to the secretary of the local
board of examiners for application
form 304, to be executed promptly and
filed with she commission at Washing?
ton. It is expected that as the result
of these examinations about eight or
nine appointments to the position of
cadet will be made from all parts of the
United States during the coming sum?
mer. The recent action of congress in
placing the revenue cutter service on
the same rink with the navy makes
the cadetship especially desirable.
Vote Half Million for Stricken
Washington, May 13.-An addition?

by the senate to the stricken people of
the French West Indies. The added
appropriation tfas in accordance with
the recommendation of the president
who had asked that the amount of re?
lief be $500,000. The joint resolution
carrying the appropriation was adopt?
ed without debate.
The Issue in National Politics.
The 'orces are gathering for a polit?
ical batttle in this country which will
be waged with much vigor and earn?
estness during the coming summer and
fall The Congressional^ elections in
the North and West will be the main
contest and.the isssue will be the
conduct of the war in the Philippine
islands, but in this issue is involved
the radical and essential difference
between the Republican and Demo?
cratic parties on the subject of terri?
torial commercial, and political ex?
pansion. Upon these lines will be
sharply defined the contentions of the
two parties, and for the time being
all other issnes will be forgotten, be?
cause upon this settlement will de?
pend the complexion of the next
House of Representatives, which will
foreshadow at least to . some etxent
the result of the Presidential contest
two years hence. The Democrats of
the South will remain solid as hereto?
fore in opposition to the colonial pol?
icy of the Republican administrations,
with only here and there an exception
among those who are seeking office, or
who are profiting from the occupancy
of favors already distributed.
The Democratic position on the
Philippine question was defined in the
platform of 1900, which favored an im?
mediate declaration of the nation's
purpose : First, to establish a stable
government : second, to give independ?
ence to the Filipinos : third, to pro?
tect them from outside interference.
The Republican practice has been *to
fasten a government of its own upon
the Filipinos : to prevent their inde?
pendence now and hereafter, and to
inflict cruelty and oppression upon
them at the pleasure of civil and mili?
tary officials. It has been claimed
that the militan* was subordinate to
the civil'administration, but recent
revelations have shown that the mili?
tary was a law unto itself in dealing
with the Filipinos, and that the cruel?
ties practiced were in excess of the
On the 9th of September, 1901, Col.
Gardener reported to Gov. Taft, the
civil ruler of the Philippines, to the
effects of military brutality, which
report Taft kept for five months before
transmitting it to the Secretary of
War. Ten days afterwards Gen. Miles
wrote to the Secretary that war in the
Philippines was being conducted with
xoarked severity . With the Gardener j
ipeort in his possession, the Secre- j
tory replies to Miles,?denying that the !
war is being conducted with marked
severity and asserting on the contrary j
that it is being conducted on humane
lines, ridiculing Miles' suggestions j
and disputing his assertions, and
seeking to discredit Gardener's report
in advance of any investigation.
On the 8th of April, 1902, in giving
testimony before a court martial in
Manila, Maj. Waller, Capt Porter and 1
Lieut. Halford said that Gen. Jacob |
H. Smith had ordered Waller to make
Samar province a howling wilderness
and to kill all natives over 10 years
old. On the first day of the trial by i
court martial of Gen. Jacob H. Smith, !
charged him with conduct prejudi?
cial to good order and disicpline, Col. j
Charles A. Woodruff, counsel for the
defense, said he desired to simplify
the proceedings, and was willing to
admit that Gen. Smif h gave instruc?
tions to Maj. Waller to "kill and
bum," and make the island of Samar
?"a howling wilderness;" that he
wanted everyone killed who was cap?
able of bearing arms, and that he
specified all over ten years of age, as
j the Samar boys of that age were
equally as dangerous as their elders.
! The revelations have brought out a
chorus of indignation from every part
of the country, and even the Republi?
can voters are made to comprehend
the "benevolent assimilation" policy
of the administration. The Democrats
in Congress are making good use of
. the damning testimony and admissions j
at the court martial, and their Repub?
lican antagonists have been paralyzed
by the truth and force of the assault
upon their position, but they cannot
defend Gen. Smith and his infamous
order, although it is said he will at?
tempt to justify his instructions by
reference to the course of Gen. Sher?
man in Georgia and South Caroilna,
and the acts of Gen. Sheridan in the
Shenandoah Valley, which were based
upon "Gen. Order No. 100," issued
first in 1863, for "the government of
armies in the field," relating to "mil?
itary necessity, martial law and retal?
iation." Only one person of any
prominence has made a defense of
Gen. Smith's orders in a public ad?
dress, and that person is "Corporal"
Tanner, formerly commissioner of pen?
sions, who said at a Grant birthday
banquet: "When Gen. Smith gave his
order, 'kill every one over ten,' he
knew what he was doing, for out
there in the Philippines boys of ten
years are oftentimes more dangerous
than grown men. I say, ' Clean them
out. ' The thing to do with them is to
make^them respect our glorious flag.'4*
Corporal Tanner was received by the
Confederate veterans at the Richmond
reunion with niarked courtesy and
kindness,|but after this utterance he
will fail to have their respect.
This state of affairs compels recog?
nition on the part of the Republicans
that there are political dangers just
ahead, and their leaders in Congress
are preparing to resist the attacks
made by the Democrats. Senators
Aldrich, Lodge, Spooner and Foraker
will defend the administration and un?
dertake to justify the methods of retal?
iation upon the Filipinos, but this
course will be pursued from dire neces?
sity, not that the Senators wish to
place themselves on record as approv?
ing the cruelties and brutalities in
their "colonial possessions," which
were "thrown into our lap by Provi?
dence." The Republicans will yet rue
the day that the junior Senator from
South Carolina changed his mind
when he heard that the old flag had
been fired upon by the Filipinos.
