TILLMAIN MAY BE PRESIDENT.
Greatest Talked Of Man In The
United States Today.
Washington, March 7.-A man who
lives in Barnwell county and who has
been spending the last week in New
York, arrived in Washington today.
and said that during the time he was
In New York there was little else talk
ed about in hotel lobbies and other
public places but Tillman. 'I neveri
saw anVthing like it in my life.'' he
said. "no matter where I went it
seemid that Tillman was the only
thing and only man talked about. New
York is a large city. and there are
many men of prominence there. but
during the time I spent in that place
I am sure I heard more of Tillman
than anything else-so much in fact.
I that sometimes I thought I must be
in some South Carolina town.
His recent actions in the senate
have set the public eye on him as
nothino else could have done, and I
believe-he is more talked about today
than any other man of the United
States-the present occupant of the
White House not excepted.
"In one of the largest hotels of
New York I came up to a group of
men gathered from all sections of the
United States, and the concensus of
opinion seemed to be that if Tillman
hailed from any.-other section than
the- south there would be the strong
est possibility of his receiving the
next democratic nomination for pres
ident. There were none in the crowd
who disputed that he had shown him
self .to be one of the brainiest men
in the senate and that he now occupi6s
a high place in the public eye. It
was agreed also by the crowd in the
lobby that if Tillman could remove
his citizenship to New York, or per
haps some western state, he would
stand as good a chance as any other
democrat to be the next occupant of
the White House."

All overseers are hereby notified to
