THE MANNING TimEs has no warrant
for its intimation that the proposition
to complete the State -apitol pro
ceeds from Columbians and is de
signed merely to add an architectural
ornament to this city. The facts con
tradict it, and we have taken pains to
show that Columbia does not ask
anything in the matter. Secretary of
State Cooper of Colleton county made
the suggestion, and Governor Mc
Sweeney of Hampton county sec
onded it. It is based first on the in
jury being done to the interior of the
building by moisture which cannot
be excluded without a permanent
roof and, second, on a creditable sen- I
timent of State pride. Columbians
see more of the present hideous pile
than other people, but as we have
said, they are more accustomed to its
ugliness and do not suffer from it as
much as visitors do. We want the
building completed, but others will
have to do the asking-we are solicit
ing nothing.-Columbia State.
THE MANNING TiMEs takes a narrow
view of the completion of the State
House. Of course Columbians desire
it, but so should every patriotic citi
zen of South Carolina, regardless of
where be lives.-Columbia Record.
The above clipped comments on
our editorial remarks of last week
show to our mind an utter disregard
for existing conditions-a blinded
desire to accomplish a purpose with
out considering the ability of the
people to gratify the desire. If the
"State" supposes for a moment that
our opposition to the completion of
the State House at present emanates
from a spirit of enmity towards Co
lumbia it is entirely mistaken; it
matters not where the proposition to
create an additional tax burden came
from, we are opposed to it because
we think the people are taxed to the
full extent of their ability to pay.
Think of it. The State of South Car
olina is a~s yet dependent upon the
products of the soil, and when those
products are decreasing in value, the
ability to stand an increase of taxes
also decreases. We are heavily taxed
now, and as we have said before and
continue to say, the people are comn
pL.'ing of their tax burden; increase
the tax Ar any purpose, and their
complaints will become louder. Our
taxes now amount to about 2 per
cent, and when insurance is added, 5
per cent. is nearer the mark, a figure
to discourage business ventures. If
our law makers can find a way to
complete the State House without
piling on an increased levy, every cit
izen in the State will not only ac
quiesce, but will be proud of the
achievement. The Uapitol building
belongs to the people and it should
be a structure inviting in appearance
as well as safe for records and com
fortable for its occupants. As far as
we know there is no opposition from
any source to the completion of this
long neglected work, but there will
be opposition to raising the levy for
that purpose. The State's presum
ing the proposition being suggested
by Secretary of State Cooper and
seconded by Governor McSweeney
makes i2 more popular than if it
originated with itself, is a mistake,
nor do we think the State does itself
justice when it says, "we want the
building completed, but others will
have to do the asking-we are solicit
ing nothing." It has a right to so
licit anything which in its judgment
is for the benefit of Columbia and
the State of South Carolina generally;
the work it has been doing for Co
lumbia is admired by all who have
the good fortune to read its editorial
columns. A newspaper that has over
come so many obstacles and has van
quished so many enemies, merits the
right to "solicit," and assuming an
independent indifference should not
creep into its make-up.
Columbia is now on a wave of pros
perity, and the "State" did much to
bring about such a happy condition.
We all rejoice in her good fortune,
and we have often expressed our con
fidence in the "future commercial ard
manufacturing centre of the South,"
and when we said we "are perfectly
willing that the city of Columbia
have a modernly finished public buil
ding as one of the attractions to aid
her in the progressive move she is
making." We meant every word of it,
and as soon as our financial condition
permitted the outlay of about a quar
ter of a million dollars, we know of
no expenditure more to be desired
but as long as the taxpayers with ag
ricultural products as the only source
from which to raise money to pay
taxes are forced to sell their products
at present depressed prices, and buy
their manufactured needs at advanc
ing prices, they will not willingly
yield to an imposition of more taxes.
When we enter the arena and take a
hand iL the discussion of a question
which involves the expenditure of a
large sum of the people's money. We
do so not in a spirit of enmity to
wards Columbia as the State inti
mates, nor with a narrow and selfish
view, as the Record would have it,
but with a sincere realization of ex
isting conditions.
Those writers who are so anxious
to spend from a quarter to a half
million dollars of the people's money
in these days of 5-cent cotton are
blinded by the glitter of their pros
perous surroundings-factories and
railroads, which are controlled by
gigantic trusts and combinations,
capitalized with European and North
ern money. They feel rich and do
not realize the condition of their
farmer cousins who have no source
of income but what can be derived
from pulling a bell line over a mule.
The farmers, who pay the greater
portion of the taxes, cannot form
trusts to force prices up and they
cannot afford to go down into their
jeans to spend money %s freely as
their trust and combination-backed
brethren who have fortune in a sling
and can twirl it at their will. The
manufacturers, railroads and other
corporations may be wihing to go
their share of a quarter to a half mil
lion dollars to complete the State
House whether the same is an abso
lute necessity cr not, but the farmer
cannot afford anything beyond dire
necessities and prefers waiting until
fortune smiles a little his way.
We venture the opinion that not a
a man holding a State office will go
before the people advocating an in
creased tax to finish the State House,
nor will a candidate for the Legislat
ure advocating such a scheme be
elected outside of the manufacturing
districts. We approve of all pro
gressive movements, and will en
dorse any scheme wbich will bring
money into our State and give em
ployment to our people,even if money
has to be appropriated for the pur
pose. In doing so we expect a re
turn, but in voting to increase the
already heavy tax to improve a build
ing which answers the purpose for
which it is used, in our present con
dition we regard extravagance.
The Columbia State saying "others
will have to do the asking-we are
soliciting nothing" reminids us of a
little boy whose mother had forbid
den him to beg for fruit when he
went to the store. The boy went into
the store, and while casting wistful
glances at a bunch cf ripe bananas,
was thinking of the promised licking
if he begged; after looking at the
fruit awhile, his mouth watering, he
broke the silence by saying to the
store keeper "if you was to give me
one of those bananas, which I want
so bad, that wourd not be me asking
for it, would it? Surely the State is
not afraid of being licked for asking
for the modest little sum of a quarter
of a million dollars, in these hard
times to finish the State house, No
its independence forbids it soliciting
anything, since wealth is rolling over
the city of Columbia. The State has
no poor kin now.
In the death of ex-Governor John
Peter Richardson, which took place
in Columbia last Wednesday night.
South Carolina lost a devoted citizen,
and Clarendon a distinguished son.
Governor Richardson had many per
sonal friends which he was to them
by his pleasing manners.
John Peter Richardson was the
great-grandson of G.en. Richard Rich
ardson 'who moved to South Carolina
from Virginia in colonial times, and
settled upon lands in Clarendon
county on the Santee river. During
a life of remarkable enterprise and
industry he acquired an immense es
tate. He was a commander of the
forces in the "snow campaign" just
prior to the revolution and possessed
almost unbounded influence in the
State. Though over 80 years of age,
he was arrested, cruelly treated by
Tarleton, and was released from
prison ship just in time to reach
home to die.
General Richardson's eldest son,
James Burchell Richardson, 'was
elected Governor in 1840. The lat
ter's son was, while in Congress in
1840, elected Governor, and in 1886
the third name in direct descent was
elected to the gubernatorial chair.
This was John Peter Richardson.
Two other descendants of General
Richardson held the same high of
fice-Gov. Richard I. Manning and
his son, Gov. John L. Manning. Gov.
James B. Richardson, grandfather
of John Peter Richardson, was leader
in the organization of the South Car
olina college.
John Peter Richardson, the wor
thy son of a family of Governors,
spent his boyhood days in Clarendon
county. In so isolated a country
neighborhood there were no proper
educational facilities and received
his early tutelage under Leslie Mc
Candless, a renowned educator. He
entered the South Carolina college
when that institution was in the ze
nith of its reputation and usefulness
under the illustrious William Pres
ton, and in 1849 graduated third in
his class. Among his classmates
were Judge Charles H. Simonton,
Judge W. H. Wallace, Gen. James
Connor, Maj. Theodore G. Barker,
Maj. W. K. Leitner, Capt. George
Cuthbert, Col. Thomas Glover, the
Rev. T. E. Wannamaker and others
who in after life distinguished them

In 1862 he joined the army of the
West, acting on the staff of General
James Cantey. first as brigade and
afterward as division adjutant gen
eral. He served through the entire
campaign between Sherman and
Johnson from Tennessee to Atlanta,
enduring all the dangers, privations
and hardships of that campaign, and
continued in service until the sur
After the war, his ample fortune
gone, he devoted himself to the he
reditary occupation of agriculture.
One of his biographers states: "Few,
even among Governor Richardson's
intimate friends, knew of the labors
and privations which he for years
assumed and endured with steady
cheerfulness, living in a cabin and
working with a hoe in the fields."
In 1865 his public services were
again called into requisition, and he
was a member of the convention
called by President Johnson to frame
a provisional government for the
State. He was a member of the Leg
islature provided for in that consti
tutional convention, and continued
to represent his county until the
military rule was inaugurated by the
national government.
During the dark days he was act
ive as an unflinching and enthusias
tic Democrat in organizing, manag
ing and leading the apparently hope
less attempt to stem the flood of in
famy and misrule which followed the
In 1876 he was defeated by the Re
publican nominee for the House by a
small majority. When Clarendon
was re'laimed in 1878 he was elected
to the House and in 1880 was elected
State Treasurer without opposition.
In 1882 and 1884 he was unanimously
In the Democratic State conven
tion of 1886 he received the nomina
tion for Governor. He was elected
without opposition, and after an able
administration was re-elected in 1888.
Governor Richardson was in office
at the time the factional fight led
by Senator Tillman came on, and
Tillman succeeded him as Governor.
Since then the ex-Governor alter
nately passed his time on his farm in
Clarendon county and in Columbia.
He spent the greater portion of his
ime in Columbia, where he and his
wife could receive that medical at
tention required in their declining
years. They were a devoted couple.
Though Governor Richardson lived
in retirement for the last eight years
of his life he never lost interest in
the affairs of his State which he

The Greenville News has been out
of touch with the Demo cratic party
so long, that it has forgotten who
were the candidates nominated by
the last Democratic convention, and
in its last Sunday's issue it gives its
readers news unheard of before. Ac
cording to our Greenville contempo

democracy's candidate for vice presi

Williams is in New York where he

The tale of woe that comes from

Washington, July 7.-It seems that
Mr. McKinley is going into the busi
ness of Senator-making, notwith
standing the ill-fortune of other Pres
idents who have engaged therein.
Assistant Secretary of War Meikle
job is the ad ministration candidate
for ;enator Thurston's seat, he hav
ing stated his intention to retire
March 3rd, 1901, when his term will
expire. Of all branches of this ad
ministration the War Department is
the worst from which a candidate for
anything could be taken, and the
Demiocrats of Nebraska, who already
had excellent chances for electing a
:najority of the next Legislature, and
Thurston's successor, ought to, and
doubtless will, thank Mr. McKinley
for making their task easier by back
ing the Assistant Secretary of War
as the admiinistration candidate for
the Senate.
The latest gossip in Washington
has it that the Alger-Pingree mix-up
is the personal work of Mr. McKin
ley, and that the enti:e influence of
the administration is to be used to
hell) Alger defeat Senator McMillan,
provided, of course, that the Repub
licans can elect a inajority of the next
Michigan Legislature-a very im
portant proviso, by the way. In view
of what Alger has done to discredit
the administration, this seems to be
an astonishing sort of a deal, but
those who have closely followed the
Hannt-MlcKi1ney political deals from
the spring of '96 to the present time
find it difficult to be astonished at
anything. According to this story,
which nmay or may not be true, Al
ger has succeeded in convincing Mr.
McKinley that all -of the attacks on
Algerism have been in reality attacks
on the entire administration, and that
unless Alger can be vindicated by an
election to the Senate all these
charges will be placed against the
McKinley administration by history.
It is plain that the support of Alger
by the McKinley administration will
be an act of treachery to Senators
McMillan and Burrows, both of whom
have been steadfast administration
men, buit treachery to friends has
long been a Hannta specialty, and ad
ministration Senators will not be as
badly needed during the remainder
of Mr. McKinley's term as they were
when the Republicans were short of a
majority in the Senate.
Democrats are citing the case with
which ex-Governor Hogg of Texas
converted the Tam many Fourth of
July meeting, which it had been gen
erally understood was to ignore Col.
Bryan, if not directly autagonize him,
into a wildly enthusiastic Bryan gath
ering as an evidence of the wonderful
hold that Cal. Bryan has upon the
rank and file o'f the Democratic party
-the men who cast the votes, but do
not attempt to engage in candidate
making. That meeting may prove a
valuable object lesson to those who
now imagine the possibility of pre
venting the national convention regis
tering the wvill of the Democratic
party at large.
A New Mexican who attended the
recent Rough Riders' reunion in that
Territory has let a brand newv Roose
velt cat out of the bag. He says that
Governor "T'eddy" told his old comn
rades that a brigade of Rough Riders
would be enlisted for the Philippines
at once, and that he could command
it if he decided it advisable to resigni
the Governorship of New York to
take it. Nobody in Washington had
heard a word of all this until the ar
rival of the gentlemen from New
MIexico. It may be merely a product
of the "silly season," or it may he
true, but if Governor Roosevelt is
willing to resign his present exalted
position to go to tbe Philippines he
will surprise those who give him
credit for knowing how to hold on to
a good thing when he has it.
