Aitheufi Johnson, of this city, hAS Just returned from a visit to South Carolina, where he attended the Due West commencements. Speaking of Dr. Talmage's address In Ersklne College, the echoes of which are still beard In the press of the State, be says: "Dr. Talmage was at bis best and delighted the people beyond measure. No speaker ever appeared before a South Carolina audience and captivated It more thoroughly. Every man, woman, and child was In high spirits, and went away feeling good and praising Dr. Talmage. It was one of the triumphs of bl8 life. "The original name of the place was 'Due West Corner,'believed to be a corruption of 'a PnrnoK ? aru/>nl loH frnm DflWitt. an early trader, wbo had a place of business at the crossing of the roads near where the college campus is now. 'Due West Corner' remained the official designation of the postofflce until the severance of postal relations between the North und South In 1861, and some of the old people In the country round about still refer to 'the Corner,' though the word corner,' In common speech, bad begun to be dropped from the name as far back as the forties. A few days ago, however, a Judge, who had been listening t6 a discussion of the tenstrike made by Dr. Talmage, and who is distinguished for bis wit as well as his good sense, said : 'It is very evident, since DeWItt Tnlmnpfi came here the other day. that this Is 'DeWitt's Corner.'"

ROOSEVELT'S UTTERANCES. Those Who Blocked the Treaty hnve on Their Sonls.the Blood of Oar Soldiers and the Natlret-Thone Wonld-Be Traitors Who Have Since Eneonraflred Agalnaldo, Share the Onllt?the Governor of New York Called Into Conference By Major MeKlnley. [By Associated Press.] Washington, July 8.?Gov. Theodore Roosevelt of New York lslonlght the guest of the President at the \?'hite House. He arrived here tnls afternoon*from Oyster Bay, In response to a telegraphic request from PrAairtnnt MeKlniev to come to Washington for a consultation. Gov. Rooavelt was met at tbe depot by the President's secretary, Mr. Cortelyou, and driven direct to tbe Wbite House, wbere be was reoelved by the President. There was a short conference between tbe distinguished gentlemen before dinner. Afterwards, together with Secretary Hay, Secretary Long, Attorney Generals Griggs and General Corbln, they sat upon the western verandah of tbe executive mansion for a longer consultation. His visit set afloat various rumors, among them that be bad been called here to be tendered tbe office ol secretary of war, to be given command of a brigade In the Philippines and to designate an entire regiment for service tbere. He declined to dlscusss these, protesting tbe President's purpose was merely to oonsult blm regarding the organization of the new volunteer army, especially, the personei or the officers. He was asked In so many words, whether the President bad tendered him the secretaryship. He replied to this question only with a laugh. The governor's best friends In Washington say that regardless of the facts as to the Presldents's tender, or fallare to make one, tbegovernor would mnoh prefer his present position as ohlef executive of the empire state to a fractional term in the war department, and his treatment of the question tonight readers this theory ae to his attitude most plausible. Gov. Roosvelt dictated the following Interview to the Associated Press : "Tbe President Mas 101a me mat ne wisueu only recommendations based upon the efficiency of tbe men recommended and tbat be will pay no heed to others. The President's attitude in the matter In the face of tbe terrlflo political pressure to which be .s and will be subject! d Is such as to entitle blm to tbe support of all men who feel that politics have no place In the army, who feel that it Is In a peculiar sense the property of the whole country and that In tbe giving of commissions aDd promotions alike absolutely no consideration should enter outside of the merit of tbe men as soldiers. "My own recommendations will be limited to tbe men I bad under me. or saw in action, and to tbe members of tbe New York volunteer regiments of whose merits I have, as gov*, ernor, not merely official knowledge, but also tbe knowledge gained from personal Inquiry among their superiors." Referring to tbe general situation In tbe Philippines and tbe policy of tbe administration with references to those stands Gov. Roosevelt said : AMERICANS WORTHY OF THE NAME. "Of course anv American worthy of the name must stand behind tbe President In bis absolute purpose to bring the Insurrection In tbe Philippines to an end. "I bave no question tbat by tbe beginning of tbe dry season, General Otis will be in shape to stamp out all resistance. Tben tbe President will see that tbe reign of absolute law and Justice follows. WHERE THE WHOLE TROUBLE LIES. "It cannot be too clearly kept In mind tbat | tbewbole trouble Is due to tbe men wbo, for two montbs, prevented tbe ratification of tbe treaty of peace and to them wbo declined to give tbe President the troopa.he needed upon the terms be asked, THE GUILT OF BLOODSHED. "Those wbo took part In the first movement < .

THE ENEMIES OF THEIR COUNTRY AND ? THEIR FLAG. 8 "Those who opposed giving ns tbe forces we , needed there showed themselves tbe enemies I of tbelr country and of the flag. Every man J who so voted in the senate may have the satisfaction of knowing that he hns done all he-oould to bring discredit on the flag and disgrace upon our arms. THE PATH OF NATIONAL HONOR. ? "It is all the more to the credit of tbe administration that It has steadfastly pursued t r uv L JIk pring Buj fiends an 3upport. \ )arnpa an that trade Lt it. New * getting 11 Lin< is, although nearly all SUMMER TRADE, a [ the path of national honor and steadfastly np held the Interests and the good name or the nation as a whole, In spite of the way It hac been "hampered by those wno sougntto net ray the nation. We bare a rlgbt to demand the support of every true American for the administration's policy In the Philippines, and every Amerioan who Is ter-slgbtm patriotic should join in denouncing alike the men wbo strive to give aid and comfort to the foes not only of America bnt of civilization In tbe Philippines, and also those other men wbo would prevent onr army's being made equal to tbe national neea." Qov. Roosevelt returns to New York tomorrow. Messrs. Hay, Long and Griggs and General Corbfn, remained with tbe President and Gov. Roosevelt nDtll 12 o'clock. It was stated tbat tbey had gone over the sltoatlon In the Phllpplnes In all Its aspects, not only taking up the question from a military point of view, but also considering its diplomatic and legal bearings. Tbe President evinced a determination to adhere to bis plan of sending only experienced and oapable offloers to tbe Pacific lelandB without regard to polltloal Influences or personal favor and made it plain that he meant to give tbe subtect bis own personal attention until tbe end should be reaobed.
