Heyburn'* Great Service.
The New York Sun Is right in say?
ing that. Senato:* Heyburn, of Idaho,
"did the country great service In the
Senate on Monc*ay when he opposed
the Joint resolution authorising the
Secretary of War to lend tents to
Confederate veterans on the occasion
of their annual reunion at Mobile In
April. "He was obsessed," says The
Sun with the idea that he wai doing
a greet public service by his demon?
stration igalnst the loan of tents to
the vetersns In gray?and he was, an
Inestimable service. For he evoked
the silent protest of Senators, some
of whom had fought on the Union
side, that wee unseemly, ungener?
ous end Insensate to revive the pain?
ful memories of the civil war In a
eeetlonel end bitter spirit and the re?
buke waa so severe that such a.t ex?
hibition Is not Ukly to be seen and
herd sgMn In that chamber."
The Sun thinks that "that thanks
of a united country are due to Mr.
Heyburn, of Idaho, in spite of him?
self." So do we, and we would sug?
gest that the Confederate veterans*
who will dwell In the tents during
the period of the Mobile reunion,
should make fitting acknowledgment
of the Idaho Senator's service to their
country by passing resolutions Of
tbenks to him for railing forth such
an expression by the Senate of the
United State*. ? Charleston Post.

bi M. Sessler, the pastor of the con?
gregation, delivered in his usual earn?
est and eloquent way, the memorial
sermon upon the subject: "How to
Remember the Dead." Reading from
Samuel 2nd. verse 23: "The beloved
and the dear In life, are even In their
death not devlded." The doctor said.
"I shall simply dwell upon the ques?
tion. What Marion Moise was to Tem?
ple Slnal Congregation, and what a
great loss the Congregation sustained
in him who ao conatantly guarded the
lntereat and welfare of the congrega?
tion. In order to honor the memory
of the departed Marlon Moise it la in?
cumbent upon this congregation for
some one to raise his voice saying, I
shall henceforth lead, and seek to
emulate hla great example?his
nobleneaa of character, hla purity of
thought, hla lofty aspirations, his hon?
esty of purpose, his love of God and

out these examples, the very one will

Moise to Temple Slnal everlastingly."
In conclusion the doctor prayed for
hla future bliss and happiness, and
reminded the mourners and all pres?
ent to atrlctly Identify themselves

BUILDING UP THE SOUTH.
Tho Excellent Work That The South
ern Hallway is Doing.
Washington, D. (;? Feb. 16.?That
the railroads are giving much atten?
tion to the upbuilding of the South
is evident to all who have given the
subject consideration. Necessarily,
the work of a railroad company who
does not possess a land grant must
be general in its* scope in order to
serve all the districts its lines repre?
sents. The recent campaign of Dr.
S. A. Knapp, of the Federal Govern?
ment, which was made under the aus?
pices of the Southern Ralway Com?
pany, is but one of the many moves
by that company looking to the bet?
terment of farm conditions In the
South. The lecture tour referred to
comprehends more than Is generally
supposed. Every Southern State
reached by the Southern Railway was
visited, and the several masterly,
practical talks made by Dr. Knapp,
will be far-reaching in their effect.
Many thousand farmers and others
In the States visited were reached
either directly or Indirectly, through
the press, and thereby stimulated to
practice better methods of farming, j
Mr. M. V. Richards, the Land and
Industrial Agent of the Southern
Railway, who suggested and organ?
ized the tour, in discussing the pur?
poses and effects of the trip, said:
"The Southern Railway Company
has for years endeavered to do its
part in promoting the further de?
velopment of the country along Its
lines. Its policy Is to treat all sec?
tions alike, co-operate with the people
In every country in their effort to
build up the country. The farming
sections have not been overlooked.
The Railway Company realizes the
value of a full development of ihe
rural districts In order to Potain the
best deveioument of the towns and
eitles wh'ch serve the country"
Mr. Rljhnrdson rightly advocates
the importance of the town people j
and the country people standing close
together if the best results for all are
to be obtained, and this recent trip
tends to bring closer harmony be?
tween all classes. The merchant,
manufacturer, and farmer alike,
were interested in the talks made
during th trip. Mr. Richardson says
that while the towns have a power- j
ful attraction for the people on the
farms he believes that feeling Is at a I
minimum In the South, and that his
company, especially, has in view pro
moting a sentiment among the peo
pie to "stick to the farm." He argues I
that the South will again be the great
farm home section of the United I
States. "The South Is the ideal large
and small farm home region; the I
standard of comfort and happiness I
la found to be higher and mor?? gen- I
eial In the South than elsewiiere on
account of the attractive features of
the rural home surroundings, In the
country. Only those who have had I
to do with th practical side of pro
moting development of the South
appreciate the obstacles which have
stood in the way of advancing the I
best interests of those already estab?
lished in the South and drawing I
others to that section. We desire to
Inculcate in the minds of every young
farmer in the South the idea that he
should buy a piece of land and in?
telligently and industriously work
his own holdings; that he should
also be Impressed with the Impor?
tance of cultivating well a small area

boro.?Warm Colloquy Last Night.
The State. Feb. 17.
The discussion of the asylum bi'l
offered by the minority of the com?
mittee appointed by the general as?
sembly to Investigate conditions at
the State Hospital for the Insane, was
continued in the senate yesterday
morning. When the senate adjourned
last night the resolution asking for
the resignation of the superintendent
and the boarJ of regents of the insti?
tution was yet the topic under dis?
cussion, and very little else had been
Five speeches were made yesterday,
and the arguments not yet concluded.
Senator Bates opposing the passage
of the bill, told of what he saw as a
member of the investigating commit?
tee. The senator from Barnwell spoke
for an hour In discussing the testi?
mony and the personal observations
of the committee at the Insan? asy?
lum and denounced the management.
Senator Weston defended Dr. Bab
cock, the superintendent and the ad?
ministration. Commencing his argu?
ment before the recess for noon, the
senator from Rlchland resumed last
night and urged the senate to exon?
erate Dr. Babcock and the board ol
regents of the charges brought
against trem. Before Senator Weston
finished his speech the question had '
been changed from that of passing
the minority bill to that of passing
the resolution from the Judiciary com?
Senator Hardin, one of the com?
mittee to Investigate the asylum and
one who signed the minority report
and Introduced the bill In the senate
that was until last night the subject
under discussion opposed action dero
gatoray to the gentlemen in charge
of the asylum. The senator from
Chester said that Dr. Babcock is one
of the great men of South Carolina
and time will see a monument erected
commemorating his goodness.
Senator Sinkler urged the passage
of the resolution requesting the resig?
nations. Mr. Sinkler said that with
reluctance he was forced to crltlclslze
the actions of those In charge of the
asylum for the insane of South Caro?
lina. Senator Graydon concluded the
argument for the night, with another
speech denouncing the conduct of the
Insane asylum. Mr. Graydon read
from the report of the board of health
and said that this in itself exposed the
When the bills from the house were
disposed of last night, Senator Wes?
ton who was speaking when the sen?
ate adjourned in the afternoon, called
for the bill he was discussing this bill
being a special order. Senator Rogers
moved to take up the resolution from
the Judiciary committee. After oppo?
sition this was done, and Senator Rog?
ers then moved to lay the resolution
on the table. This caused a heated
discussion to arise. Senator Graydon
demurred, saying that resolution had
not been discussed at all. Senator
Christensen said that he must protest,
and that this was unprecedented, and
he never saw debate cut off by a sen?
ator making a motion to table in this
Senator Williams in a vigorous, al?
though brief speech, urged the senate
to vote down the motion to table. "Do
you wish to gag us?" said the senator
from Lancaster, addressing the sena?
tor from Marlboro. Mr. Williams In?
sisted that the other senator would
have to withdraw the motion so that
the resolution could be discussed. Sen?
ator Williams continued that he
would appeal to the senate not to al?
low a "gag law" in the senate of
South Carolina. The speaker said
while he was not physically able to
make a speech on the resolution al?
though he had intended doing so,
other senators intended to speak. Sen?
ator Williams was interrupted by the
?enator from Marlboro who said he
wished to make an explanation of
why he made the motion to table.
Senator Williams said he would yield
to the senator if he intended to with?
draw the motion, accompanied by an
explanation. Just here the two sen?
ators Indulged in a few remarks that
injected life Into proceedings that
have been exciting all the way
through. The senator from Lancas?
ter Insisted that the motion be with?
drawn, and the senator from Marl?
boro stated that he would withdraw
it. but not at the dictation of Senator
Williams. Finally Senator Williams
yielded) and Senator Rogers eald he
had made the motion t ) table be?
cause he had beard many senators
?ay the matter had been discussed
enough. The motion was withdrawn:
and Senator Weston resumed his
argumenta, speaking on the resolu?
tion now instead of the minority bill
as was the case before dinner,
j The senate proceedings are exciting
! more interest than any legislation of
the term, not excepting the bill regu?
lating the law in regard to the cue
tody of children which excited mote
than State-wide interest. The gal?
leries and bails of the senate chanv
ber were crowded with an interested
audience throughout the day, the
crowd at the night session blocking

opening argument in the case, was
the last speaker last night. Senator
Graydon said he would reply to Sen?
ator Weston, and in making his reply

ammunition?the report of the State
board of health and the State Hospi?
tal for the Insane.
The senator read from this report
In many places and a running fire of
questions was kept ip by other sen?
ators, who were also provided with
such reports. Saying that the insane
asylum had been awarded thousands
of dollars more than they asked for
during the last 10 years, the senator
from Abbeville again sternly critici?
zed the management of the insane
Debate will probably be concluded
and a vote taken on the matter to?
day. It is probable that only two
more discussion may arise this morn?
A SEVERE ARRAIGNMENT.
Senator Huger Slnkler's Speech on
Columbia, Feb. 17.?Senator Huger
Sinkler, of Charleston, for 14 years a
member of the general assembly, last
night replied to Senator Hardin and
declared that there is wrong at the
State hospital. He said:
"Mr. President, many measures of
vital importance to commercial and
political history have vexed the
minds of this senate, but none so su?
preme, so solemn as the question pre?
sented to us by this resolution. In
this hall we have fought for and
against those who could battle for
their rights, those whom we could
strike and those who could strike
against us. The mailed hand of pub?
lic power has defied us, the strength
of political unity and organization
may have persuaded us.
"Even the child, the brother or
sister of any legislator can come to
him and pour out his legislative
wants but, sir, the gibbering of the
idiot, the cries of the maniac, the pit?
iful protest, can and only can be
heard and echoed and reechoed vainly
in their cells and corridors.
"Centuries and centuries ago a sore
wounded wayfarer was on the way?
side stricken. A proud priest passed
by. A Levite passed him by but a
Samaritan stopped, and the question
then and there 'who is my brother'
was answered and its echo Is with us
today'. I feel, Mr. President, the re?
sponsibility I assume. I feel that some
one has done a wrong, and my belief
is based upon the Immutable records
that will be empaneled forever In the
archives of this State.
"Eanish all prejudice, forget all
friendships, however, loyal it is and
commendable, put aside all political
feeling and let the record condemn
or condone. Sir, I wish I could rise to
my feet and urge and vote for a med?
al to the superintendent and board of
regents for a noble life work. That
would give me pleasure. But I can
not do It.
"There It stands in that record that
men bereft of reason covered with
vermin, cruelly treated, aye and to go
down almost to the degradation of
human nature, the records show that
for amusement these poor helpless
beings were teased and badgered by
the inhuman attendants. What after
all Is the defense, one word?econ?
"BIr. President, we all will shortly
leave these halls. This body in a few
dayi will never meet together with its
same personnel. Whenever the per?
sonal equation is involved, whether It
be individually or as a mass, always
conies bitterness and dissension.
"Mr. President, I disclaim absolute?
ly e.ny feeling of malice, but I am
firm, sir, in my convictions that from
all I have heard, if I did I would do
more gross injustice to that institu?
tion and to the people of South Caro?
lina to vote against this resolution
than for it."
