TlLLMAN HANDS OFF
IN GOVERNOR'S RACE
YINATOR SAYS TE WONT HELP "A
'Tells Augusta Chronitle Reporter He
Will Run for Senator Even ii
In an interriel wh Ir. John L.
McWhorzer of tLe Augusta Chronicle,
at his home in Trton, S-nator Till
mar on Thursday said he was hands
off in the co:est for governor. The
Chroniele publishes the following:
' will be a candidate for reelection
to the Unizd States senate.if I am
alive and not nt ariculo-mort:s. Yes,
by God, I believe if I am dead I'll let
em vote for me a little anyhow.'
"In this emphatic language Senator
Benjamin Ryan Tillman sets forever
at rest the cherished hopes of some,
and the doubts of others, as to whether
he will be in the L%nlted States sena
torial race next year.
Active on the Farm.
"At his farm near TrentoK yester
day, Senator Tillman 'talked the mat
ter over' with a staff representative of
the Chronicle, .and in language more
or less Tillmane-sque, as the various
phases demanded, stated that he be
lieved he would be elected again with
"'It has been said often that I colild
,sit on my back porch and be reelected,'
said he. '1 don't know why they al
ways mention my back porch for the
front porch is-much more cheerful and
I use it the more, but I suppose they
.mean to imply that I need not even
show myself in the campaign and that
my friends in South Caro'ina will see
that I go back, if I want tr.' .
"Senator Tillman was buy on isis
farm, but he took ti4ne "o i.y this
"To those who are fami*Ca., with the
oft repeated statements as to his fa'
ing health it may come as a surpri..,
to knov that he sleeps well, eats hear
tily, gives the whole farm his personal
supepvision by walking and ' riding
over it every day, in fact many times
a day, dictates, his private and official
letters to his secretary, and that his'
mnind is as clear as a bell, and his old
time fire of speech and manner blazes
out at opportune times. The only
'real reminder of his past affliction is
the cane he carries-and he sometimes'
forgets that and gets along seemingly
as well as with it.
' Death the Only Bar.I
"Barring death, he will be in the race
mi~cd he will make speeches too, and he
-says he doesn't care who or how many?
enter the- field. Any one has a right
to offer who wishes to.
Entirely Hands Off.
'Senator, it has been more than
minted by some that you are encourag
ing, and will back Governor- Blease
* for l'e-election as governor, next sum
mner.' The Chronicle wants to know
directly from you, if you will give it,
how ,much truth ther is in these hints
and rumors?' was the direct question,
asked Senator Tillman by the, repre
sentative of the Chronicle.
'I am not going to help a damn'
soul ini that race. I am going to be
strictly hands off and neutral, and
furthermore I have not give any oned
any authority to say that I was r
or against either of the candidates who
h?ave anncsn}ep~d. *[ am not going
to mix in it or have anything to do
"The senator's attention was called
to the story in yesterday morninig's
br'ionicle, written by Col. Leon Green,
a former newspaper man in South
Carolina, in which it was stated that
*Senator Tillman woard be a factor in
the race, and he said that he did not
see much in the story, but that 'was
* probably written to draw me out.' He
said that he did notJ know who in-!
spired the story, but so far as the ref
erences to his being a factor was con
cerned he could only repeat what he
had just said: That he was 'not going
to be mixed up in it.'
"Senator Tillmap, from his talk, is
evidently of the opinion that neither
Gbvernor Blease nor Mr. Justice Jones
will win in a walk over the other."
W BLEASE ON WATSON.
4overnor 'Says He hras Done Good1
Work for State-Nothing in Hiar
"There will certainly be no change1
in the office until the expiration of
'Mr. Watson's term, and I doubt very
much if there will be any then," said1
Governor Blease Friday, when asked:
about the rumor that has been afloat<
in official circles in the last few days :
that Mr. James Norton, of Mullins,
would be appointed commissioner of
agriculture, commerce and industries,
to succeed Co!. E. J. Watson, who has
Teld the offce since March, 1904.
"I do not eve.n know Ithat Mr. Norton It
is an applicant for the position," said i i
Governor Blease. "He was in my of
fice a few days ago, but merely shook
hands with me, and the office was not
mentioned at !hat time. I really know
nothing whatever of the newspaper ac
counts which have been sent out about
the appointment of Mr. Norton to the
office. Mr. Watson has been doing
very good work in his present position,
and I do not know that there will be
any change at all so far as I can tell
at present, when Mr. WatsCn's term
Governor BEase eaid also that he
had thought of offering this position
to Mr. John G. Richards, Jr., but that
the latter had been appointed railroad
coinissioner, and he had n- Aone so.
Mr. Norton has been in Columbia for
the past few days, and his presence
appears to have awaked rumors which I
were afloat some months ago that he <
would be appointed -uy Governor Blease t
to succeed Col. Watson when the lat
ter's term expires in the early part of f
next year. Mr. Norton is a former t
member of congress, and was for sev- t
en years comptroller general of South I1
Carolina. He is at present editor rof
the Messenger, published at Mullins.
When asked concerning the rumors,
Mr. Norton said he thought it best for
him not to say anything for publica
tion at this time, and that the rumors d
which were in circulation did not ori- t
ginate from him.
Didn't "Promise the State." t
Referring to a paragraph whicb has 1
been going the rounds of the Northern
press, and which has been copied in V
this State, that he had bad a confer- N
ence with a party of supportera of f
Governor Harmon "or the presidency, N
while attending the Red MeCS co'IU
cil in Cleveland, and that he "was t
ready to promise that'South Caro3ina
will support the Ohio goverro-," Gov
ernor Blease said characteristically I
that this was ."one of the biggest li'es -
he had ever seen in a newspaper." He
wished it to be stated, he said, that ihe
had no conference whatever with sup
porters of Harmon, in Cincinnati, and
of course, that he did not promise
Souith Carolina for narmon.
"I am supporting Harmon for the
gresidency, however," said Governor
Blease, "and -will do all in my power
to 3arry the State for him, even if it
should hurt me in my race here."
TILLNAN AND HIS PITCHFORKS.
Purchases Implements in Columbia,
Remov'ing W*rappers When Start-.
ing on Homeward Trip.
Columbia, Sept. 21.-Senator Till-,
an spent today in Columbia on per
sonal business, passing most of the
tihe with his friend, Dr. Babcock. He:
returned to his home at Trenton on the -
fternoon train and carried with him:
wo real pitchforks.
The senator bought the pitchforks
p-town and had them sent down to
the un.ion station for him ?t train time. a
hey were wrapped up in paper until o
hey were unrecognizable, and when s
e told Dr. Babcock what was in the a
undle the doctor insisted they ought1 o
o be unwrapped and carried openly byT
the senator, so the paper was taen
off and Pitchfork Ben toted the two 9
pitchorks home on the train without -
ny concealment. Two of the sena
tor's friends, Congressman Lever and
Ir. R. I. Manning, happened to be t
resent and assisted in the opening up ci
f the characteristic package. It was s
seen that the tines were tipped with s
gold and the senator was twitted about B
hoisting the gold standard, against: 0
cvhich he used to proclaim eloquently
in the days of "16 to 1 or bust."
Will be in Race. 9.
But the senator is very much more
interested these days in pitchforks,
agricultural than pitchforks political.
h news that there will be at least
ne candidate to oppose him for re- of
election, .Col. W. J. Talbert, does not tc
seem to have disturbed him at all. E
senator Tillman expects to stand fort1
re-election. He also expects to make: 1]
at least a few speeches. The senator 0]
enjoys meeting the people, and only I(i
the strict orders of his physicians and in
f Mrs. Tillman, who has always been w
s chief adviser, have prevented him U
irom going around more this summer.! S.
[t is his determination to offer for a a
~ourth term in the senate. That may b
e set down as certain.
His Fourth Term. di
If Senator Tillman is re-elected, or; te
re-nominated in the 1912 primary, he
vill on the 4th of March, 1913, begIn -
is fourth term as senator from South
Darolina. Having served as governor
from 1891 to 1895,'he was first el'ected
:o .the senate in 1894 to succeed Gen. fi<
I. C. Butler and took his seat on 4th cc
f March, 1895. He was re-elected in iF:
[900 and again in 1906, both timeg ti<
~vithout opposition. Col. W. Jasper a.
ralbert, formerly congressman, has
nnounced he will be a candidate for
