d to some considerations at
e hands of their constituency,
and it might also be -well to re
view their officiil course there and
their political conduct as well
since they have been the accred
ited representatives of the State
of South Carolina.
Senator McLaurin was elected
to the United States senate to
succeed the late Joseph H. Earle I
as a Democrat and by the Demo
cratic party and under an implied
oath, at least, to faithfully adhere
to the platform, priucples and
creed of the party which had
honored him with the highest
office in its gift; but regardless of
his obligation to thie party that
had entrusted the great office, to

keeping, he barely reaches the!

tion of the State, and his only
hope is to fly false colors and it
possible deceive the illiterate
voter. Mr. McLaurin's record
shows that honor, principle and
loyalty to party play no part in;
his campaigns. It is the office
he wants and the cost is imma
terial. This is clearly shown by
his conduct at Gaffney and since,

almost immediately he began to

until McSweeney opened a crack

he did not kill himself in getting
out of Tillman's pen in such in
decent haste. However, after his
escape he managed to contain
himself long enough to thank the
Governor for his patriotism in
letting him out.
Such deception, hypocracy,
treachery and contemptible eforts
to deceive the people is absolute
ly without a parallel in the polit
i'al history of South Carolina.
Contrast the able and dignified
record of B. R. Tillman who has
faithfully represented his party
and State, whose power, influence
and accomplishments that will
more than equal that of all the
senators and representatives we
have sent to the national con
'gress since the war put together.
He has ably and with powerful
effect combatted Republican ex
penditures, thefts, outrages and
robberies. He has boldly ex
posed Republican corruption
without mercy, and put them to
flight by the force of his power
ful arraignment. He has driven
the armor plate thieves from their
base and thereby saved millions
to the American people. In order
to relieve the State of the dis
grace of McLaurinism and re
pubcanism, he offers to sacrifice
his office with its emoluments
aggregating $33,000 and entail
upon himself the burden of a
State canvass at an additional
cost of $500 more. What could
demonstrate more closely his de
votion and loyalty to the grand
old Democratic party with its
honored traditions than this sin
gle act alone? When the impar
tial history of South Carolina is
written Tiliman will adorn its
pages as one of the greatest men
the State has ever produced,

Ir. D. 11. Provence Writes an Inter

My a few this time and perhaps

The character of the soil, rocks,
ossil shells, etc., show plainly to
bhe observer. that this country
was at some period of the earth s
history covered by the sea, and
that at a subsequent* time it was
'pushed up" so to speak, by some
great upheaval of nature until
now it stands far above the rest
of the North American continent.
The altitude here at Santa Fe
is 7000 feet, just 300 feet above
the highest mountain peak east
of the Mississippi river, with
mountains all around which run
up, some of them to 14 thousand
feet. On account of this great
altitude as a living place one
who comes here from the east
experiences often a good deal of
difficulty at first with embarassed
heart and lung action.
This ity is the oldest in the
United States. It first existed
as an Indian pueblo previous to
the advent of the exploring Span
iards. It is situated on Santa
Fe Creek which supplies watei
to the people and to the ever dry
and thirsty soil.
The population is in th3 neigh

dice, you hear more Spanish tenr
English and one often finds him
self in an embarrasing position
unless he is familiar with the
language. The streets are gene
rally very narrow and crooked
without sidewalks. The houscs
are almost wholly of adobe, mate
into large bricks from the native
dirt and straw and dried in the
sun. This kind of building ma
terial must have forced itself on
the native mind through neces
sity, for timber is extremely rare
and only to be found in the moun
tains where there is plenty of
water. The "dobe" brick is not
so firm and strong as the common
burnt brick, and consequently
will not stand much pressure or
rain, so the houses are only one
story high and built flat on the
ground. The floors are of dirt,
which are often scoured with a
cloth and water, which gives them
a nice appearance when dry and
also makes them hard. The roof
is also of dirt a foot or more
thick, almost flat, just enough
depressed on one side to cause
the water to run off. On these
roofs grow grass, weeds, and
shrubs, and I have seen vegeta
hles planted safe out of the reach
of sheep and goats. The walls
are plastered without and within.
The inside is frequently white
washed with lime. On a whole
these houses are extremely com
fortable, warm in winter and
cool in summer. Most of these
houses are built around a small
square afier the old Spanish cus
tom, like an inner court, or in the
Spanish placita, which is diminu
tive of plaza.
The placita is a delightful place
with the doors of each room open

ground with head and shoulders

The monotony of the town is
broken by an open square in its
centre, called the plaza or park,
which is filled with trees, grass,
flowers, feuntains and benches,
where hundreds congregate every
day to converse and enjoy them.
