Savoyarc" says no man in all the
history of the United States Senate
has so rap dly come to the front as
a leader ol that body as John Sharp
W?liiaims. In one week after he
took his si at ihe squelched Heyburn
and showe'i Bailey that he, after all,
was only s mortal. The best of all,
there is n > crookedness about Wil
liams brard of Democracy.
Senator Gore believes in voting
that favor; reform. Being taunted
with following the leadership of Pen
rose, of P' nnslyvanla, the blind sen
ator from Oklahoma, rejoined that,
in order t( reduce the price of bread,
it was nc-?essary to cooperate with
with Pennsylvania and Massachu
setts w.hib to accomplish a like result
with clothing the alliance was neces
ary with Ijwa and Wisconsin.
The R.tehmond Virginian thinks
that not (nly is there no occasion for
worry over' "nesrro domination" in
the Soutt but that there never was.
The Charlotte Observer agrees that
there net d never have been any oc
casion fcr worry over the ultimate
outcome. Bmt there was bound to be
ti good d sal of worry while the con
test, wit i the federal government
^vnd the war-horn constitutional
amendments as the real opponent,
was actu illy on.
Senator Tillman's Position.
Senator Tillman and Senator Bai
ley, who have frequently voted the
same way on important questions,
when it came to the Canadian Rec
iprocity Bill. Senator Tillman vot
ed fox it while Senator Bailey voted
against it. Senator Tillman during
his absence from the special session
has a general pair on all party ques
tions with. Senator Dillingham, Re
publican, of Vermont, and his vote
therefore counts as if he were pres
Under the rule of the Senate in
reference to pairs upon any question
upon which Senators Dillingham
and Tillmiam are agreed, Senator Dil
lingham would have the privilege of
voting, thus disregarding the pair,
in order that his vote may count, and
this was the case with regard to
amendments to the reciprocity bill,
as ds disclosed by an extract from the
Cau^resslonal Record of July 22nd,
the vote being upon the amendment
offered by Senator McCumber to the
Canadian Reciprocity Bill.
When the name of Senator Dill
rngham was called he said: I have a
general pair with the senior Senator
from South Carolina (Mr. Tillman).
I am informed that in respect of all
amendments to this bill he would
vote 'nay.' I am therefore at
liberty to do the same. I make this
announcement for the day as relat
ing to all amendments to the bill."
This was evidently a surprise to
Senator Bailey, who said "if the sen
ator from! Vermont does not object,
I should like to have him incorporate
in the Record upon whose authority
It is that he makes the statement ias
the attitude of the Senator from
South Carolina. "
Senator Dfllingham replied that
he made the statement on the au
thority of Senator Bacon, of Georgia,
to whom he said he was referred by
Senator Tillman in a letter.
Senator Bailey, was evidently sur
prised as he seems to have been un
der the Impression that Senator Till
man would vote as hedid on this
Important measure, but it seems that
Senator Tillman had given his views
to Senator Bacon and was recorded
for the bill. When It came to a fi
nal passage of the bill Senator Dil
lingham, who opposed the bill, re
spected the general pair with Sena
tor Tillman by declining to vote.
Result of Straw Ballot.
Desirous of testing the sentiment
of the country respecting the choice
of a president next year, The World's
Work asked 2,415 of its subscribers
to mark a ballot haing the names
of possible candidates. The 2,415
names were divided among the sev
eral States in exact proportion to the
electoral vote of each State?five
times as many ballots being sent to
each State as it possesses electoral
votes. The names were drawn, a
State at a time, at random, by clerks
Ignorant of the purpose, from the
subscription files of the magazine.
And here is the result:
William H. Taft. . .402
Judson A. Harmon... 96
Robt. M. LaFollette. . .. . . .. 91
Champ Clark.. .. .. 1.45
Willdam J. Bryan.34
The Columbia Record says at
least one feature of "The World's
Work's census is strikingly Impor
tant. Of the total number of votes,
519, received by Governor Wilson in
this ballot, 145 were caBt by Republi
cans and 22 by Independents. Which
is to say that of the Democratic pcs- j
sibilities, Governor Wilson makes the
strongest appeal to the Independent
ly inclined Republicans and the
"This coticlueion drawn from the
ballot taken 'by the World's Work is
confirmed by every other observa
tion. A Columbia visitor to Atlan
tic City, recently returned, reported
that several Republican voters, from
as many different States, who were
met up with there, declared their in
tention of supporting Governor W'il
son should he be nominated. Oth
erwise they will vote the Republi
"Governor Wilsou himself has said
that in his travels to different parts
of the country the most impressive
fact noted is the breakirg away from
party ties and the dlspo ition to sup
port progressive meas ires, regard
less of what party label they do or
do not bear. It is because Governor
Wilson stands so consplculously be
fore the people as a (progressive
staesman that the trend of sentiment
is in his direction." ?
South Getting Whiter.
The Progressive Farmer rejoices
to find from an analysis of census
returns that the rural South is rap
idly growing whiter and that the
white population of the whole South
is increasing almost exactly twice
as fast as that of the negro popula
tion. "Even from a selfish stand
point," it comments, "we realize that
?be best interests of the whole South
demand that the negro be made moio
intelligent, efficient and prosperous.
But at the best this process will be
slow; and the proportion of negroes
to whites in the South has been too
large even for the ne:rro's own good."
As the Charlotte Observer says, in
some parts of the South especially.
Too large a proportion of negroes
anywhere tends to make race rela
tions tense, to deprive the white man
of free action and the negro of that
full measure of inspiration and ex
ample which contact with the white
man should afford. Under such cir
cumstances lawlessness thrives and
all the standards of civic life are
more or less debased.
Senator Tillman's Reception.
The Columbia State says: "The re
election of Senator Tillman next
year without opposition is easily
within the range of possibility, but
if the event should take place, no
false significance should he attached
to it. Tt would not mean that the
Senator has come to be a general
favorite, that sometime opponents
have changed to admirers and that
he has won his way into the affec
tions of all the people. Rather it
would mean a reluctance to antago
nize an aged man, whose passionate
craving to hold on to bis conspicuous
position in public life is far stronger
than anybody's disposition to put
him out." We think the Stato is
mistaken in what it says above. At
least, that is our idea, based on what
we have seen and heard in he last
few years. There are many people
in this community who were once
bitter opponents of Senator Tillman,
who are now Ms friends and- would
regret to see him leave the Senate.
On his recent visit to Orangeburg:
Senator Tillman was called on by
about as many old time anti-Till
manites as Tillmanites, which shows
hows he stands now with those who
used to oppose :him. With few ex
ceptions everyone wants Senator
