TI 'OS. ). ADAMS, EDITOR
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22.
' Gen Fitzhugh Lee has asked
that the South Carolina Regiment
be assigned to his command.
The concentration of Lee's
seeventh corps is to begin
immediately with six regiments
to be sent from Tampa.
Miles states that Garcia has fif
teen thousand Insurgents ready at
Santiago to cooperate in an attack
on the city and ass?st in landing
the American troops.
Col. William Jennings Bryan
announces to the world his pleasure
at the christening of his Nebraska
regiment as tho "Silver Batallion,"
and is even anxious to see it go
down in history under that title.
One of the first el&rpmen to
volunteer in the present war was
the Rev. Th ornas Ewing Sherman,
granson of the late Gen. W. Ewing
Sherman, son of the late Gen.
William T. Sherman and nephew
of the Ex-Secratary of the State.
The State campaign is not de
veloping much enthusiasm as yet.
At one place one of the guberna
torial aspirants had the small
crowd, at the next place another
one, and so it goes. At Charleston
"Unelo George" seemed to have
the majority.
From the daily papers we gather
that the authorities have decided
to adopt Gen. Miles's p!an of ope
rating against Cuba au i Porto
Rico. Those plans are, in a nut
shell, to do one thing at a time ; for
instance, capture Santiago first
with regular troops. After the cap
ture is ompMed, the captured
country to be put in the charge of
the volunteer army, the regulars to
be carried on to Porto Rico. After
the capture and occupation of Porto
Rico the regulars to be brought
back to Cuba and a long, strong
pull by all hands will be made for
Havana and the end of the whole I
Cuban business.
The Navy Department has sent
or ders t J Admiral Sampson to
notify Admiral Cervera that, if the
latter destroys his iour armored
cruiser end two torpedo boat des
troyers to prevent their falling
into our hands, Spain at the end
-Ojt.the war "will be made to pay an
additional indemnity at least
equivalent to the value of those
ves?els. It has been realized all
along that the Spanish Admira;
rathjer tL iu permit his fine squad
ron to bo added to the United
States Navy, might at the last
moment when he saw that further
reistance was useless, prefer to
blow them np, perhaps going so
far as to carry himself and hie
.""men along with them. It was
somewhat hastily assumed at first |
that if Cervera cared to do this
nothing on earth could be done io
prevent it. Even now* he m ?y
prefer to send his ships to the
bottom and let this county exact
such reparation as it may see fit.
The Navy Department hopes, how
ever, to convince him by the
above argument of the folly of
doing anything so rash.
EDUCATION AND ITS NEEDS
Another Candidate for State
Superintendent.
Mr. Job IA J. McMahan is to be
a candidate for Superintendent of
Education, and be makes the
announcement of the fact in a card
which is published below :
To tho Democrats of South Caro
ilna :
After careful deliberation for
mi:uy months 1 announce myself
a candidate for the office of State
Superintendent of Education.
Candidates ari; necessary that the
machinery of Democracy may
move. Every election should af
ford an expression of the best
judgment of the people. Yet the
voter,can do nothing but choose
between candidates and unless
there bc anumber of these
with diverse views his right of
suffrage is practically denied.
Whatever, therefore, may be
the result to mo personally, I
render a service to the cause of
popular government in my native
State when I undertake to discuss
be fore the people in their counties,
during the hot summer months,
the subject of public education,
and to offer myself, tog'-ther with
ray views and my purposes, for
endorsement or rejection.
The State that" aspires to be
second to none in all that makes
for human greatness must seek
tobo second to none in the intelli
gence and character of its citizens.
South Carolina has assumed the
duty of educating her people,
and if the quality of that educa
tion is not of the best, she cannot
hold her own in the world over the
economic and social problems that

Jamaica, Sunday, June 19, 4 p. m.
-Several attempts to find landing
? places for the United States troops,
within a distauce of two miles
west of Santiago, have demonstra
ted, along with previous inquiries
to the westward, that the shore for
15 miles is lined with Spaniards.
While this will not prevent land
ing close to Santiago, it may en
tail considerable delay, as the sur
rounding country must be thor
oughly shelled and cleared before
the troops can laud in safety.
When rear Admiral Sampson
yesterday received advices that up
ward of 30 transports would bo
here to-day (Saturday), he sent
word that they should stund to the
south 10 miles imd lie there until
?a landing place had been secured.
Yesterday at daylight the laun
ches of the New York and the
Massachusetts reconnoitered the
snore between Cabanas, two miles
west of the entrance to Santiago
barbar, and Guayagnnaco, two
miles further west, both ot which
points lie east of the range of
mountains surrounding Santiago
bay.
The paunches puehed their nose
into a hornet's nest. The brush
was fairly alive with Spanish
troops, infantry and cavalry, and
the fire opened up on the launches
was so fierce that their retreat had
to bo covered by the Vixen aud rho
Texas. When the TexaB asked
permission of Commodore Schley
to take a hand, the commander
seized the megaphone and shouted
to Captain Philip, "Yes, go in and
give 'em-, Jack."
The Texas landed several 4-iuch
shells on the battery at Cabanas,
completely demolishiug it. Lieu
tenant Sharpe, of the Vixen, aud
Lieutenant Harlow, in command
of the launches, were both compli
mented by Admiral Sampson for ,
gallantry.
It is believed that ihe insurgents .
who are in force, and under com
mand of General Garcia about ^5
miles west, will render effective
aid in driving the Spanish skir
mishers off the shore.
The-following is the abstract of
Lieutenant Harlow's report to the
commander of the Vixen, dated
June IS:
uThe expedition consisted of a
now overshadow the destinies of
thc nations.
What are our common schools
accomplishing? What shall we
make of them? What standard of
education shall we aim at for our
people? What is the value of
education? Is it indispensable?
What is education? Does it bear
upon the practical problems of life
and happiness? Why does the
State educate?
If the State Superintendent of
Public Education will perform a .
work worthy of his office, he muFt
go among the people, direct their
thoughts to these questions, and
arouse them to a faith and a zeal
in the cause of popular education.
Public education is the cheapest in
the world ; let it not throughnoglect
be the poorest and thus dear at any
price. In its conception it is tho
realization of the motto of the
ideal republic-''Equality, Fra
terity. Liberty." It is based upon
the spirit of Christ-held one
another, and is the expression of
the life-giving principle ol'
modern Democracy. Let us made
it a reality; let us build up the
echools. The State will awake to
new life in overv department, moral
social and industrial. The benefits
will be felt by us and by our
posterity.

steam launch from the Massachu
setts in charge of Cadet Hart and
a launch from the New York in
charge of Cadet Powell. I took
passage on the Massachusetts'
launch, leading-the vay. Sound
ings were taken on entering the
bay, close uuder the old forts, and
we were preparing to circumnavi
gate the bay at full speed, when
fire was opened from the fort
and rocks on shore. The Massa
chusetts' launch wan 6ome distance
ahead and about 40 yards off the
fort.
There was no room to turu and
our 1-pounder could not be brought
to bear, so we backed and turned
uuder a heavy fire.
"Cadet Hart operated the gun as
soon as it could be brought to bear,
sitting exposed in the bow and
working the gun as cooly and care
fully as at target practice. Cadet
Powell had been firing since the
Spaniards opened. He also was
perfectly cool. Both launches ran
out from a heavy fire from six to
eight minutes.
"The launches, as soon as was
practicable, sheered to give the
Vixen the range of the fort.. The
Vixen and tho Texas silenced the
shore fire promptly.
"I strongly commend Cadet
Hart and Cadet Powell for their
cool management of the launches.
One launch was struck seven times.
Nobody in cither was hurt. A bul
let struck a shell at Cadet Hart's
feet between the projectile and the
powder, but failed to explode the
latter.
"Coxswain O'Donnell and Sea
man Bloom are commended, as is
also the coolness with which the
marines and sailors worked under
the Spanish fire.
"Nothing was learned of Caban
as baj\ but at Guayagauaco, it is
evident a landing is practicable
for ship's boats. The same is true
of Rancho Cruz, a small bay to the
eastward. Both would be valuable
with Cabanas, but useless without
it. I am informed that, to ?he north
and westward of Cabanas bay,
there is a large clearing, with plenty
of grass and water. I think a si
multaneous lauding at the three
placer? named would be practica
ble, if the ships would shell the
adjacent wood. A junction would
naturally follow at the clearing.'

Likewise Present Their Claims
for Gubernatorial Honors.
Orangeburg, June 16.-To ono
who has had the fortune to portray
three successive so-called Tillman
campaigns, with all their epitheti
cal hurly-burly, the initial meet
ing of the campaign of 1898 comes
as a mild tonic, without the brac
ing and exciting featuies of its
predecessors. A small and rather
unresponsive audience of between
one and two huudred persons sat
for four hours beneath the fusilade
of more than a score of candidates.
All rumors to the effect that the
Hon. Geo. D. Tillman would not
make the race were effectually
silensed when he appeared on the
scene, cocked and primed for the
conflict. The
MEETING WAS CALLL'D TO ORDER
by Dr. Lowman, county chairman,
who stated that the gubernatorial
candidates would be limited in
their speeches to fifteen minutes
and the others to five minutes. He
then introduced
GOVERNOR ELLERBE.
There was not a 6ound as the
Governor advanced, and from the
tomb-like silence that prevailed in
the crowd for the next fifteen miu
ules a Quaker meeting without the
arnens predicted.
Governor EUerbe said he had
been in office only seventeen
months, but during that time he
bad been abused and misrepre
sented by politicians who canvass
ed the Stat? while he was in bis
office at the State House with his
hands tied'and his lips sealed, but
now. said he, I thank God I am
here to invite one and all to come
and put up or shut up. I have
been charged with being a politi
cal trickster. I deny that I have
ever made a political deal, and I
invite any on'.- to show the prcof.
Governor Ellerbe asked for re
election on his merits. He would
not accept it simply because of the
honored custom of giving the Gov
ernor a second term. Comment
ing on the State institutions, he
said the penitentiary had been
well managed, having paid into
the State $10,000; The manage
ment of the asylum was all that
.could be desired. The . colleges
were in a flourishing condition,
with the exception of the Citadel.,
The rebellion there had been un
fortunate, but it should not hurt
this grand institution.
He had tried to give the people
a plain business-like, honest and
economical administration. He
had had obstacles greater in man}r
respects than his predecessors.
During his term the State had been
dominated by the original pack
age people. He, however, had had
more liquor seized than any of his
predecessors and at less expense.
The dispensary was the best solu
tion of the liquor question. In
1892 he had voted for prohibition
because he considered it more
preferable than open barrooms, but
the dispensary system had de
creased drunkenness in the State
and would be far more potent in
that respect than prohibition, and
hall a loaf was better than no
bread.
Governor Ellerbe advocated bien
nial sessions of the general assem
bly. Each session cost South Caro
lina about $50,000, and, as far as
the general good was concerned,
some of them were not worth $2.50
to the State. The Governor took
his seat amid applause.
"YOUR UNCLE GEORGE."
Col. George Tillman was intro
duced to the tune of "hurrah for
Tillman," "if he is any kin to Ben
ho's all right," together with con
siderable general applause, After
an eloquent reference to Orange
burg's dead heroes, he put the
crowd in a good humor by declar
ing that the time allotted him for
making a speech was not even
sufficient to allow him to pay them
a few compliments. He could only
hop.' skip, and jump over a few
leading questions. His remarks
were spicy and pungent and seem
ed to interest the crowd im
mensely.
I am, said he, for trying to keep
your money in your pocket and not
taking it all for taxes. Taxes are
too high. I object to having three
colleges where the courses are re
duplicated and where free tuition
is given in competition with pri
vate and denominational institu
tions.
He dealt vigorously with the
dispensary question, riddling it
mercilessly. This moral institu
tion had been in operation for
five years, and he challenged the
authorities to show where it had
paid the State. Why has no other
State adopted it? We are alone in
our glory-a bloody record of
oppression, crime and peculation.
Et never started in Sweden, but
svas invented by some South
Carolina in order to organize a
politieal ring, which was in full
blast with 400 or 500 drones.
Men and women, too, will drink
whiskey in spite of men or devil
and all regulations, but from the
Jeremiad of the prohibitionist,
one would think that this old
world was go mg to the dovi? at a
2:40 gait.
All philosophers say that we
should tax that which the people
will pay for most readily. A
majority of the nations of the
earth collect more than on-half of
their revenue from taxes on
stimulants, and should we be fools
enough to let go this great source
for the benefit of politicians and
drones?
Col. Tillman touched up Gov
ernor Ellerbe for his t:lack of
judgment and backbone" in -not
fighting the abuses of the dispen
sary and the State colleges. We
used to pay $45,000 for the sup
port of State'colleges and now we
are paying $177,000 therefor, and
that is the cause of the $100,000
deficit in the State treasury last
year and the reas iu for increasing
taxes one-half mill. He was for
taking away the privilege tax from
Clemson College and dividing the
Federal fund of $30,000 between
Clemson and Winthrop, giving
them the same strength as tho
South Carolina College. This tax
was the greatest disgrace upon
the administration that has ever
stained the reputation cf South
Carolina-as disgraceful as the
despot of Persia wheu he assigns
some reveuue of a certin city to
some favorite courtier or mistress.
The college collects this tax when
it-suits in deference to pets and
favorites. Some men get all the
guano they waut without paying
anything.
? He wanted to b.: Governor on
account of the honor attached to it
It is honor that makes statesmen
and makes men deserve the confi
dence of the people. He finished
amid applause and offers to extend
bis timp.
COL. ii. t?. WATSON.
was the next speaker and guberna
torial candidate. He was greeted
with slight hand clapping. He
was 56 years of age before he ever
asked for an office. He went to
dp;, something for the- public
schools. He had never left the bat
tlefield or been furloughed except
when pierced by a Yankee bullet.
He jiad always been a Democrat
and ?;ad never: retained a Radical
negro in his service.
He declard th rt Gov. Ellerbe
had attempted to ride two horses
and fallen in the mud. He scored
him for having been weak-kneed
pu the dispensary question in
times past.
. Col. Watson said he was a
temperance man, but did not
believe in coercion. The wa}- to
defeat the whiskey monster was to
stop drinking whiskey. Take care
of the home and the nation will
take care of itself. Put the Bible
on every table aud whiskey will
have small chance.
. He said he favored higher
education, but complained that
students were taken away from the
schools too soon, and that much of
the work being done by th? colleges
should be done by the public
pchools.
"GWALT" TO THE FRONT.
The introduction of the Rev.
G. Walt Whitman as a candidate
for Governor was greeted by a
round of laughter and good
humored applause. As usual he
made a vigorous, talk-rightout-in
meetiug speech which had the
amused attentiou of the crowd
from start to finish.
Mr. Whitman said he had an

utter contempt for the opinions of
the politicians, and that he relied
on the masses to elect him. He
declared that of the educational
institutions of the State the
Citadel did more than aU the oth
ers. He was in favor of throwing
open all the State colleges to all
its citizens. He favored the
dispensary, but not the administra
tion thereof. We have absolutely
no administration, he declard.
"We have had an administration
administered by the politicians
and by the United State govermert,
However, I am not going to kick
the corpse."
He vigorously combatted the
"animalcnlal politicians" who
termed him a crank, saying that
where he was best known he was
given the most credit for having
common sense- Unlike some-of
his competitors he could not ride
two horses at once, but he did ride
a bicycle, and on it he was riding
right into the hearts and homes of
the people along the campaign
route. The women encouraged
him, "and yet these miseraole" he

at the aforesaid politicians, "try

made a vigorous speech denying
that he had changed front on the
educational question. He favored
higher education for all, but
the manner in which it was
administered made it class legisla
tion. He m ado an elaborate
review of the history of education
in South Carolina and distributed
circulars anent it. He was for
economy in public affairs. He
believed in temperance, but if the
churches, with their laws against
drinking whiskey, could not
be expected to compromise his
common sense by advocating s
prohibition law when the best
people do not keep such a law.

EDWARD W. S0OTT.
PRESIDENT.
Issues all Forms of Policies
at Lowest Possible Pates
Consistent with Safety.
AND without making special medtion of each of its many popu
lar plans of insurance, we desire to invito the careful examina
tion of all concerned in Life Insurance to THE PROVIDENTES
TWENTY-YEAR RENEWABLE TERM POLICY-A SPECIAL
POLICY FOR BUSINESS MEN.
Twenty years is a long time. This is true in life insurance, as
well as in other business transactions. Nearly all life insurance poli
cies are contracts for a period of twenty years. They are made so by
insurance companies to supply the the needs of the insuriug publia.
When a man takes a whole-life, twenty payment life or twenty-} ear
bond, he considers its cost to him during twenty years, and the settle
ment which he can make at t/te end of twenty years. Experience and
statistics prove that only a small percentage of policies are continued
longer than the twenty-year period.
Men take on large lines of insurance from age 30 to 40. The en
suing twenty years cover the period when their families are growing
up and beiug.educated ; it also covers the period of their greatest busi
ness activity. It covers the time when their families and business in
terests require .the gre^st amount of protection.
A man's requirements are not the same at 60 years that they are
at 40 years. His fanrly has grown up, his business conditions have
changed, or the necessity for insurance has disappeared.
In view of these facts, The Provident Savings issues a policy at a
fixed rate for twenty years, which includes only the cost of protection
for that time. The premiums on this policy are less than one-half the
premiums charged for a twenty-payment life. If a man wants insur
ance/or proteciion only, this policy will snpply his wants admirably.
He is not obliged to make a deposit with an insurance company for a
future which hex may never reach ; especially when he has need for
this deposit, and more, too, in his business.
To illustrate this Policy, we will give the figures. A man at 30
takes one of these Policies for $1,000 at the regular term.rates of $14-3! ;
per annum for twenty years. This policy can be continued, after
twenty years, without medical re-examination, at rates for the age
then attained.
