GOVER-NOR ELLERBE DEAD.
The hand of death was laid upon
South Carolina's chief executive last
Friday night at his home in Marion
Governor Ellerbe had been sick a
long time and his friends throughout
the State were prepared for the end.
It was the writer's privilege to have
had an intimate acquaintance with
him, and those who enjoyed a simi
lar privilege knew him and loved him.
Governor Ellerbe had the interests
of the State at heart and his whole
soul was thrown into his duties- He
never took a position without conn
enation, and once his mind was made
up he was as immovable as a rock.
During his entire public career he
displayed independence and, having
the courage of his convictions, he
acted according to the dictates of his
conscience and judgment; by doing
so he was often misunderstood but
more often misconstrued. Not since
South Carolina became a State was
there an Executive who occupied
such an embarrassing position.
The State had gone through a
heated political revolution, followed
by a sensational and exciting admin
istration, during which there were
riots and bloodshed, and which made
the sore cut by the revolution of 1890
gape open wider and cause the irrita
tion to become more intense. The
people were divided, households were~
torn asunder and brothers were ene
mies. This state of affairs existed
until the people realized that some
thing must be done to allay the feel
ing and bring about peace. William
H. Ellerbe of Marion was called for
ward and commissioned for the task.
No sooner had he commenced his
work of pacification than up went the
howl from the politicians of both fac
tions; the extreme Conservatives felt
that the branch of peace had upon it
an offce for each one of their faction,
and the extreme Reformers felt that
the Governor was too liberal towards
those who were classed as political
enemies; the Reformers claimed, "to
the victors belong the spoils," and
the Conservatives claimed that the
minority had a right to recognition
and a division of the offces. Gover
nor Ellerbe paid no heed to either
side, and made his appointments in
accordance with his oath of offie-to
be Governor of the whole people.
His first term was a success as far as
it went, but it did not finish the work
laid out by his policy, and notwith
standing the opposition of the bulk
of the politicians, and a faction that
had sprung into existence which pur
ported to have for its motive a moral
principle, and this faction receiving
the aid of another element opposed
to the "moral principle" movement
and to Governor Ellerbe, he was re
elected. The saying, "uneasy is the
head that wears a crown" was true in
Governor Ellerbe's case; to add to
his burden, came along the visitations
of Providence and removed by death
quite a number of offee-holders; this
necessitated the use of his appointing
power and wherever a vacancy oc
curred, applications were many and
each applicant was warmly endorsed.
The appointment would be made,
and where he made one man happy
the one receiving the commission
the disappointed applicants enlisted
in the ranks of the enemy. It was
the same way when the Spanish
American war broke out; the aspi
rants for shoulder straps were to be
counted by the score, and as they
would lose the coveted prize, over the
line they stepped to ally themselves
with the other clamoring discontents.
We say his entire gubernatorial career
was beset with embarrassing obsta
cles, but he bravely faced themi all and
acted without regard to consequences,
other than The approval of his
Maker, for whom he had a devout
regard and whose approbation he
Governor Ellerbe was an honest
man, and if at any time during his
career he made a mistake it was an
error of judgment and not made pur
posely or with crafty intent. He was
misrepresented by his political oppo
nents, for political effect, but those
who knew him were not shaken in
their confidence in him, and when
litical disappointment are brushed
aside, as they are bound to be, even
his enemies will accord to his mem
ory that which is due. The historian
will say, that William Hazelden El
lerbe was a fearless and honest ruler,
and in his death South Carolina lost
a son for whom she does not blush
for having honoied. Peace to his
South Carolina has now for its
chief executive Miles Benjamin Mc
Sweeney of Hampton county, origi
nally of Charleston, where he was
born and learned the printers' trade.
Governor McSweeney is no acci
dent, although he fills the unexpired
term of the lamented Ellerbe. He
was twice elected by the people of
South Carolina to the second highest
office in the State, and his second
election was without opposition, so
well and faithfully had he carried out
the trust reposed in him. The peo
ple of the State, when they re-elected
Governor Ellerbe knew that his
health was bad, and there was a
strong probability he would not live
out his term; knowing this con
dition,it is fair for us to presume that
endorsing McSweeney's administra
tion and placing him second in com
mand, under the circumstances was
virtually an expression of choice for
Governor by the people, and the
honor is as great as if he had been
elected to the position directly.
It is hardly necessary for us to go
into McSweeney's life to acquaint the
people of him, because we have only
recently given a sketch of the man,
and the fact that he has so often been
honored by his profession, the peo
ple of his home and, the people of the
State, is sufficient evidence that in
1him the people have a man compe
tent and with the other requisites to
make a good Governor.
We know Governor McSweeney;
no one can come in contact with
him without discovering in the man
an individuality which attracts to ad
miration. He is open and sincere,
frank and determined, kind-hearted
and sensible. He is scrupulously
careful in business matters, and will
not mix sentiment with his business
affairs; socially he is of lovable dis
position and of free hearted generos
ity. McSweeney is a fine judge of
human nature and is able to distin
guish the genuine from the pretended
friendships. Experience is his alma
mater and from it he has gained a
knowledge of human kind which
makes him peculiarly fitted to grasp
the helm of the ship of State, and
guide her safely on.
Governor McSweeney has been the
architect of his own fortune, and as
he did not permit his. ear to become
soothed by the tempter in his private
affairs, so will he not be allured from
the paths of rectitude and duty, now
that he has assumed the grave respon
sibility of governor of the State.
There is no man who is cognizant of
his position and realizes its gravity
more than the present Chief Execu
tive, at the same time the State of
South Carolina, never had a governor
who entered upon the discharge of
his duties with a stronger determina
tion to prove by his works, a life of
honest toil with an ambition to win
an honorable mention on the pages
of the State's history can be attained,
even if the ambitious one, can not
produce a long line of distinguished
ancestry, yea, even if his career be
gan as a newsboy, at the printers' case
or in the plow field.
We want the youth of the State to
study the career of Governor Mc
Sweeney and profit by the possibili
ties he has hewn out for them, and
we want the people to keep an eye on
his administration, and it is our opin
ion, based upon a full knowledge of
his past, together with an intimate
personal acquantance, and friendship
of many years that his admininistra
tion will meet the approval of those
who have the interests of the State
at heart, and when this term shall
have ended ho will not have to bend
the knee to scheming politicians, to
ask them for re-election, but there will
come from the people such a demand
for his endorsement, that the voice
will sound from one end of the State
to the other, and no politician will
have the termerity to oppose him
with any hope of success.
We have every confideiice in the
success of Governor McSweeney's ad
ministration, because if ability, hon
esty, and determination can bring
about such a result, then success is
an assured fact.
Anna Gould, a daughter of Jay
Gould, whose father was a mouse-trap
peddler, bought a titled French Bum
a few years ago, and she is now play
ing the role of a French aristocrat in
Paris. Last Sunday at the races she
led a mob of profligate men and wom
en to insult Loubet the president, be
cause of his part in the Dreyfus affair.
Her conduct was a disgrace to her
sex and we have no doubt her riot
ious living in the French capital is a
stench in the nostrils of decent Amer
ican women, at any rate the washer
women in America, display a better
grade of morals and dignity than
does the countess whose gold only
made her a French aristocrat. Creat
ures like Anna Gould would not be
permitted to associate with decent
American factory women, but in

The address of Governor Mc
Sweeney given to the press as his
first official utterance, is short and
sound, and bears the stamp of a man
who does not intend to indulge in
glittering promises, but that he pro
poses to make his works build the
record. The people may expect a
solid business administration.
Uncle Sam still finds need of Amer
ion troops to civilize the conquered
savages in the Philippines. A des
patch of 5th, inst says that two bat
talions were landed covered by a well
directed fire from two gun boats. Of
course when these battalions landed
the savages fled to the hills, at the
same time they fired upon the Ameri
can forces with effect at a range of
3,500 yards. We presume that Uncle
Sam's blue coats came out of the fight
with much glory although the dis
patch does not so say.
Governor McSweeney has selected
Major E. H. Aull of Newberry as his
private secretary, and while we would
have been glad to have seen Col. W.
B. Evans continued, yet we recog
nize in the selectiln of a private sec
retary the Governor had to have a
close personal friend, one in whom
he must confide many things that he
would not care to confide with a man
who is but an acquaintance. Majoi
Aull is an excellent gentleman, a man
of letters and specially suited for the
place, and those who will have busi
ness in the executive office can feel
assured of the most careful, accurate
and polite attention. "Major Aull is
a lawyer by profession, a journalist
from choice, and a first class and suc
cessful business man; his accept
ance of the position was influenced
largely by his personal devotion to his
friend, the Governor. A better choice
could not have been made, and we
congratulate both the Governor and
Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian tubc.
When this tube gets inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing. and
when it is entirely closed deafness is the
result, and unless the inflarmation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its nor
mal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed
condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for any
case of deafuess (caused by catarrh) that
cannot be cured by Hall's Cattarrh Cure.

Washington, June 2.-More men
more blood, and more money for the
Philippines. That is the cheerful
outlook. Mr. McKinley has become
convinced that Aguinaldo successfully
played the role of brier fox in his
dealings with the blue-coated and
red-trousered A merican civilian Com
missioners, by staving off active mili
tary operations against him until the
rainy season, while he was preparing
for another campaign in the fall. He
has also become convinced that any
further delay of the volunteers in the
Philippines who wish to come home
will be dangerous. Convinced of
these two things there was nothing
left for him to do except to decide to
issue a call for volunteers to go to
the Philippines, under authority of
the army act of the last Congress.
He has made that decision, but, in
keeping with his usual custom of giv
ing the public an excuse for his every
important act, will defer issuing the
call for volunteers until he gets a ca
blegram from Gen. Otis saying that
more men are imperatively needed
over there. It has been found im
possible to get any considerable num
ber of the volunteers now in the
Philippines to re-enlist, although each
man who does so is given travel pay
amounting to about $600.
The Spanish flag is for the first
time in more than a year flying in

wife, are guests. The new Minister

ed his credentials and later was pre
sented by Mr. Hay to Mr. McKinley,
and diplomatic relations are again
established with Spain. The Minis
ter has many personal friends in
Washington, which was the home of
his wife when he first met her and for
many years afterwards.

the Henderson wing of the combine

that they are claiming that Hender
