to Clark, saying: "To look at Butler
you'd never suspect he wore a
wooden leg, would you?"
"No!" exclaimed Mr. Clark, surprised.
"Fact!" continued the other. "Butler
was an officer in the Confederate
army, as you know. It was not long
before he had a leg shot off. Before
leaving hospital he was supplied with
an artificial leg. Eventually he again
went to the front, and this time a bit
of shell blew his artificial member to
pieces. Just think, Clark," reflectively
added the senator. "If Butler had

Facts About Latest Entry In Senatorial
This interesting sketch of Mayor
Rhett. who last week entered the senatorial
race, is from the new volume.
Men of Mark:
Robert Goodwyn Rhett, lawyer,
banker, financier, was born in Columbia,
Richland county, South Carolina,
March 25, 1862, son of Albert Moore
and Martha (Goodwyn) Rhett. He is
descended from an old colonial family,
whose earliest American representatives
were Thomas Landgrave
Smith, who came to Charlestown,
| Mass., about 1670. These two Smiths
were the grandsons of Sir George
I Smith, of Exeter, who was also the
grandfather of George Monck, duke of
Albemarle. The grandson of George
Smith came to Carolina and married
his second cousin. Sabina Smith, the
granddaughter of Governor Thomas
Smith. In 1744 their son, also named j
Thomas, married Sarah Moore, the)
granddaughter of Col. William Rhett,
and his grandchildren, amongst whom
was Thomas Moore, the grandfather
of Robert Goodwyn, adopted the name
of Rhett. about to become extinct.
William Rhett attained to most
creditable distinction in the pioneer
days of the colony of South Carolina,
and in 1706 was speaker of the house
of commons of that colony. In the
(same year he received a commission
as vice-admiral of an English colonial
fleet fitted out against the French, and
in 1717 he commanded the expedition
which resulted in the capture of the

and Robert Barnwell.
The rise of Albert Moore Rhett in
his profession and in public life was
one of remarkable rapidity. In the
same year that he was admitted to
the bar he entered the state legislature,
wheie he took rank with the
abltst debaters in the state, and at
the end of his four years' service he
had risen almost if not tpiUe to the
head of his bar. In 1843 he removed to
Charleston, and in October of that
year was stricken with yellow fever,
and died at the early age of thirtyfour
In an article from the pen of an
early friend of Albert Moore Rhett,
high praise is given to his abilities as
a public speaker. "in his address,"
says this writer, "Mr. Rhett was selfpossessed,
grave and earnest; but
when he was warmed by debate his
logic and invective were overwhelming.
His fine voice and tall, handsome person
added not a little to the graces of
his elocution; while his choice and
pregnant English reminded one by
turns of the terseness of Tacitus and
the solid periods of Milton. He was as
severe in the selection of his phrases
as in the order of his logic, and when
he spoke on the spurt of the occasion,
or after much preparation, no link ever
dropped from the chain of his argument,
and his periods were filled up
and rounded with all the completeness
that rhetorical art can impart. If he
had lived to old age, he would have
been one of the first men and one of
the finest orators of South Carolina."
Robert Barnwell Rhett was also a
distinguished lawyer and advocate of
state's rights. He was in congress for
a number of years, and upon the death
of John C. Calhoun, he succeded the
latter in the United States senate. He
was a rival of Jefferson Davis for the
presidency of the Confederate states
of America after the ordinance of secession
had been passed.
Robert Goodwyn Rhett's father is a
native of South Carolina and was born
in 1834. He was one of the pioneer's

the phosphate rock discovered near
Charleston in the late sixties, and constructed
the largest of the factories
there. Upon the acquisition of nearly

charge of them all, which position he

The early life of Mr. Rhett was spent

where he grew up amid a cultured
environment. He fitted for college
at Porter academy, Charleston,
and at the Episcopal High school near
Alexandria, Va.. and entered the university
of Virginia in the fall of 1879.
In 1883 he was graduated from that
institution with a degree of M. A., and
in the following year took his degree
in law. Immediately thereafter he entered
the law offices of Brawley &
Barnwell of Charleston. In 1886 he
formed a partnership with George M.
Trenholm, under the firm name of
Trenholm & Rhett. In 1893 W. C.
Miller, and in 1899 R. S. Whaley, were
admitted to the firm, which was then

It was not long after his admission
to the bar before Mr. Rhett attained
a prominent position in the profession,
but his energies were not confined to
the practice of law. The business of
fertilizer manufacturing attracting his
attention as one of which could be
profitably extended, he became instrumental
in the establishment of two
large factories, and continued to take
an active and leading part in this
industry until it was concentrated in

American Municipalities. The most
important public enterprises under
consideration during Mr. Rhett's term
of office as alderman were the construction
of a navy yard by the United
States government, and the location
and building of a new system of waterworks
by the Charleston Light and
Water company. Mr. Rhett manifested
an absorbing interest in each of
these measures, and in the case of
the waterworks, its final accomplishment
was due in no small measure to
his untiring efforts.

HAVING FUN WITH JEFF DAVIS.
Arkansas Senator Butt of Mr. Johnston's
JefT Davis, junior senator from Arkansas.
says a Washington dispatch
to the New York Tribune, is being
quietly but effectually hazed by his
colleagues, and, being utterly devoid
of humor, has not yet realized the
fact. When the Arkansan returned
recently from his state he inquired of
Senator Johnston of Alabama, the status
of his measure providing for the
annihilation of trusts, combines, etc.
"Dead, under Rule 17," was Mr.
Johnston's laconic reply.
"What is Rule 17?" demanded Mr.
"Oh, it's a rule the old senators
have adopted to keep us young fellows
from attaining any prominence
in the senate," replied Mr. Johnston.
"It provides that whenever any measure
introduced by a senator ^vho has
served less than one full term, shall
lie on the table, or in committee, for
thirty days without action thereon, it
shall therehv hp regarded as dead
and may not be again considered at
"Why, that's a blank outrage!" exclaimed
Davis. "I have been down in
Arkansas attending to political business
and the thirty days have expired.
Now, if I don't get some action it will
go hard with me in my state."
"You might apply to Clark, chairman
of judiciary," said Mr, Johnston.
"He might get unanimous consent to
waive the rule. That's what they do
for their favorites."
, "I'm afraid I have no chance. I've
scored 'em, so I don't believe I'm a
favorite." replied the distressed Arkansan,
"but I'll try."
I Mr. Johnston," who is a statesman
of serious countenance and grave demeanor,
hastened to Senator Clark,
chairman of judiciary, and posted
him as to the purport of rule 17. At
the next meeting of the Judiciary
committee, Mr. Davis appeared and
inquired the fate of his bill.
"Dead, under Rule 17," replied Senator
"Rut I must feet it up!" excitedly
exclaimed the Arkansas wonder. "I
have just got to. get action on that
bill or they will never send me to the
senate again. Every Hill-billie has
set his heart on the passage of that
"You might move to discharge the
committee and get the senate to take
it up," gravely suggested the chairman
"But I don't want to make the
members of the committee mad and
get them all down on me," replied
"Don't worry about that," said Mr.
Clark. "No member of the committee
will resent It if you first explain
the exigencies of the situation and the
demands of the 'Hill-billies.'"
For several days Davis was busy
explaining to the members of the judiciary
committee the situation in Arkansas
and the necessity for his motion
to discharge them, which he appeared
to think would in some inscrutable
way affect the salaries of the
senators so discharged. Having made
his explanations and met with no opposition
Mr. Davis made the proposed
motio.n and supported it with his recent
explosion in the senate. Of course
no vote was reached on the motion,
but Davis is devoutly thankful that
his measure has at least escaped the
clutches of Rule 17.
Only yesterday Davis approached
"Johnston." he said, "do you know
they don't print that damnable Rule
17? I have searched the senate rules
and can't find a trace of it. In fact,
there are only sixteen rules printed in
"Precisely, precisely," replied Mr.
Johnston. "That's all done with a
purpose. It's a pernicious plan of
Aldrich's. They don't print Rule 17
so as to catch us young fellows unawares
and they catch most of us."
"Well, it's outrageous," replied the
Arkansan, "but you may count on it
I will never be caught again. I shall
make a speech on every measure I
introduce at least once in thirty days
so they can't say there has been no
action on my bills. Meantime, T want
you to write down that rule for me so
I can learn it by heart. If I don't
know all its provisions I may get
caught by it. anyway."
If Mr. Davis carries out his purpose
and speaks on every measure he lias
introduced, at least once in thirty
days the fate of the Alabama joker at
the hands of the "elder statesmen"
will be altogether too horrible for other
than Davis himself to describe.
Meanwhile he is still hunting for Rule
