Otherwise there tnlsht be no need for a

Chairman, nf that we are proud
My friends, von do not understand those
people Vou condemn iih of thn South
and yet Ohio follow a I he c-ample. In Spring
field the) followed it N'ew .lersev follows
II retinsylvanui will follow it All other
Stales of the tmcrhnn I'nlon will follow
it. because no mailer where It be, north
or south, east ur west, whenever 5 ou
touch the Caucasian blood It Is Ihe same,
and it will prove Itselt to he the superior
and the lilstorv of 'he world has proved it
i both liihleanil profane historyi that when
ever Ihe inrerinr race iccts in the way of
the superior the superior will rule and
control, even ilioitch it be necessary to
w ip e the inferior nice from the face of the
earth. Some men condemn this and that
is their privilege, but In the Southern States
we love n woman, we hold her higher than
all things else, and whenever anything
steps between a Southern man and the
derence of the virtue of the womanhood of
his nation and his State he will tear It, down
and walk over It In her defence, regardless
of whatever may ho the consequence or
whatever may be his punishment or the
result to hlms-lf
Now, Mr. Chairman, we have a .fudge In
our State whom I consider the ablest man
who hai ever been on the bench there.
On one occasion several Indictments were
handed out by the Solicitor to the firand
.Jury, and he aat there and heard the Solid
tor hand out Indictment atter Indictment.
After ii while he turned around and said.
"Mr. Solicitor, are these white people or
darklea you are handing out these In
dictments against?" The .Solicitor said:
"May It please your Honor, they are against
colored people." Tho Judge looked ovar
to the (Irand Jury and said: "Oentle
men, you can And no trim bill ugatnit these
negroes for tho crime for which the Solicitor
la handing out these Indictments. Do
you want any cotton raised this year,
ao you wan. your neiaa cultivated? If so
It will not do to bring In truebllls on these
Indictments against these negroes."
The result was no true hills were found.
So It will be seen that we can't treat them
an we do oursehos, We treat them in
serrants, We pay them honestly for the
day's work and I am pioiul to stand hen
and timki" this statement, and when I spciU
lieie Icmm p,.( to tho American na
tion, liecnuse It has been hernliloil all over
the country and nil over the world what
my opinions are on these subject.
I nm proud that I have paroled or par
doned tuoro negroes than all the Cuivet
nors of South Carolina put together since
li"(l, when we redeemed ourselves and
went back lo white supieinncy in the old
State of South Carolina, therefore I say
that I am tint his enemy' but his friend,
and I know him better than you know him.

The. Hampton Shops and
Christmas Gift Suggestions
THE Christmas Gift of Furniture, if it is to
carry out the loving intent of its offer,
must be so chosen as to suggest the personality
of its giver.
We have gathered together in one of our
Galleries a collection of productions of our
Hampton Shops which will be found especially
suitable for Christmas giving.
The Hampton Shops have gained their
reputation by their Reproductions of carefully
chosen examples of the master works of the
old-world Craftsmen. Each one of these pos
sesses an individuality of design and is fashioned
with an integrity which imparts to it a compell
ing air of distinction and refinement.
This it is that renders them so ideal as
We have selected, as indicative of the entire
gathering, a few pieces for cursory mention:
The Blenheim TcafTagott- The Commonwealth
A reproduction of a Crom
wellian Chair unequalled in its
ease giving comfort.
The Chatsworth Secretaire'
Decoratively effective yet
commodiously useful is this re
production of a Georgian com
bination of Book Case and Desk.
The Rushton Lamp Stand
A daintily conceived reminder
of Georgian days. A Repro
duction of one of Chippendale's
most characteristic pieces, j
Smoker s Cabinet-
An ingenious adaptation to
modern needs of the decorative
methods of the XVII Century
