Would Increase Country's Stock of Aesthetic Wealth-Hit Million aires Otherwise. Washington correspondence Colum bia State. Senator Tillman's remarks in the senate on the subject of art were lis tened to with a good deal of interest. For the first time, he said, he was in accord with Messrs Lodge of Massa chusetts and Root of New York both of whom wanted to put works of art on the free list. Senator Tillman is fond of pictures and he says that these millionaires who collect fine paintings in Europe and bring them over here for their great mansions generally wind up by giving the pic tures to the public. He said: "Mr. President, in this debate it Aas not been my good fortune to be very often found indorsing the views expressed by the senators from New York and Massachusetts. But on this question I feel bound to say, in an humble and modest way, making no pretense whatever of being an art connoisseur, that if that poet who tald us that 'a thing of beauty is a joy forever' told the truth, this is not the place where the American senate should display a niggardliness, a nar rowness, and a penny4wise-and-pound foolish policy. "The contemplation of beautiful paintings and statnary by even the most ignorant person must exert an elevating and refined influence. Many a boy has become inspired to do like wise, has had his soul enthused and his mind fired with the ambition to become a paintei or a sculptor. by seeing great works of art. Not a Connoisseur. "I had the misfortune last year to become very 'll, and I was ordered to Europe as a uleans of relaxation and rest. I had the opportunity to visit the great art galleries of Florence. Paris and L-n-don, to say nothing of the smaller ones in other cities where I soiourned briefly. While I did not get as enthusiastic over some of those things as other people seemed -to be, I saw enough to convince me that the American people can afford to encour age the importation of some of those masterpieces, something that we can get as a means .of .elevating the thought and inspiring the artistic genius of our people. ''Therefore, I for one in this de bate as I said feel anxious to see the gates thrown wide open and every opportunity offered for wealthy Am ericans, who have been made rich as they are going to be made rich by this very bill, to bring in works of art. If you want to whack these multimillionaires, cut out some of the special privileges you acre givmng them elsewhere in the getiting of money; but if they want to bring anything from abroad here which is worth while, let us let 4them do it. They will in time die out and an art gallery will beome, in all probability the legatee of their collections. Gifts to Public. "I noted in London that a half dozen of the finest collections were donated to the public by private in dividuals who had spent a lifetime and a fortune, or two or three for tunes, in collections such as are no more to be gathered together on the globe, because they have scoured the four corners of t.he earth almqst to get these curious and artistic gems w hich :-e t een gi :en a. those pee pie; and they are theC 7:-etest tream ures in London today. "When v:e cons.e; tha a paint ing is imper>hible if .:t y cared for that is, for several een aries at least, and no .me hardly kne>vs how long a well carec for painting will las' -we ce: .:jerstandi how it is impos sible that thees multimillionaires will n'ot :dOd to the sto of artis+e .wealth w tl's count -:,, and in time ther ali I. crease the aietic genius of ou.r people by ,merely having their galleries accessible. Many of these rich people are liberal enough to al low their art galleries to be visited by the public on given days, and oth ers have loaned their masterpieces to this or that public gallery. "As I have said, if you want to be hard on these rich people and want to make them do this. that; and the other, let us cut out some of the methods by which they get this mon ey, but let us allow them to spend it to bring as many great and glorious works of art to America as possible.'' PHYSICIAN SHOOTS. Dr. H. A. Bdwards and Jobn Kirby Of Dillon Tight-Doctor Claims Self-Defense. Dillon, June 15.-In a personal dif ficulty today between Dr. H. A. Ed wards of Latta and John Kirby of Dillon, Dr. Edwards was painfully hurt and Kirby dangerously shot. Kirby was at Dr. Edward's office: in Tatta this niorning, 'where sharp words passed between them, growin I out of some previous misunderstand ing. Dr. Edwards and Kirby met again a few hours after at the home of Jule Kirby, brother of John. it Dothan, four miles from Dillon, where Dr. Edwards was attending one of the family. The difficulty was at once renewed, Kirby closing in and throwing Dr. Edwards to the floor. Kirby is physically much the stronger man. Dr. Edwards. it is said felt that his life was in danger and draw ing his pistol, placed the muzzle against his antagonist, firing four times in rapid succession, all the shots taking effect, three of them in the left side and front, about the short ribs. Three of them passed entirely through Kirby's body just to the left of the spinal column. The fourth struck just below the left arm-pit and lodged in the chest cavity. The phys, icians regard his condition as ex eeedingly grave. Dr. Edwards is painfully but is not considered seri ously hurt. HOMICIDE IN AIKEN. Three Men Slaughtered in Thirty-Six Hours-Another was Mortally Wounded. Aiken, June 14.-Aiken county has established a new record for homi cides.

At Saller yesterday morning a lit tle negro boy, named Isaiah Hair. shot and insthntly killed a negro named Will Attaberry, cwho is said to have been in bed, and Hair shot him with a shotgun before he got up, literally shooting his face off.

Lampton, bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal church. The girl is Bishop Lampton 's daughter. She has vainly insisted that the title be used by saleswomen in stores and by telephone operators. On Saturday. after some sharp words add:ressed to one of the tele phone operators, she said that her - father would see that she was s>poken s to in a respectful manner. e Bishop Lampton called on -the tele- no phone manager and demanded that all the young women at the exchange be af ordered to address his daughter as Miss Lampton. The manager dechin- bo ed and made the interview known. n An indignation meeting was held by citizens and Bishop Lampton was th tiven five h/urs to take his family from the city. i WARRANTS SWORN OUT sa AGAINST T.
