TILLMAN CURLS HIS LIP.
UNITED STATES SENATE,
Washington. D. C., Jan. 11. 1902.
Louis Appelt Esq., Manning, S. C.
I have just received THE MANNING
TIMEs of 8, January. Your purpose is
evident. But I do not propose to dig
nify you or your charges by any fur
ther notice in print. I denounce your
four columns of insinuations, misrep
. resentations and falsehoods as slanders,
and when you decline to face me before
eople. you fall too low to be
ny notice at ify hands. I

>r actions from respectable
all times and in any place

Senator, I will gladly do o.
B. R. TILLMAN.
Uusually when a. individual
declines to "dignify" us, we
leave him alone to enjoy his
grand estimate of himself, but
when a man writes a letter for
publication in this newspaper,
it-is our privilege to reply to it,
and when we have done so, he
cannot with good grace come
back at us with "I do not pro
pose to dignify you or your
charges by any further notice in
print," and get off with it. Oh
no, we have observed such tricks
before and cannot now at this
stage of the game be . fooled by
Senator Tillman says he will
not "dignify" us "by any furth
er notice in pnnt" and further
says "I denounce your four col
umns of insinuations, misrepre
sentations and falsehoods as
slanders." The Senator pro
claims that on account of what
we have written about him no
more notice will be taken of us
in the newspapers. leaving the
public to infer that it would be
advisable for us to see that he
does not notice us too much, out
of print. Tillman had the op
*portunity on Tuesday of last]
week in the City of Columbia.]
*We stood within arms length of<
him for over a quarter of an
hour in the lobby of Wright's
hotel and he looked at us but]
showed no disposition to "notice"]
us out of print, so we do not1
think that we are in much dan
The letter which we print
above was sent to Manning and
forwarded to us in Columbia, not]
in time however- to be returned1
for publication last week: it1
doesn't matter about the delay
- of a few days. We said we will
publish* anything Senator Till-]
man wishes published in reply1
to anything we might say about 1
him, and we would do the same
for the humblest citizen. The
above letter is not a reply, but
we produce it as an advertise
ment for Mr. Tillman without
charging him a cent for it: The1
price for publishing that letter
would be about $4.00 and were
we to charge him, it might hand
icap his payment- of the $4,000
note now lying in the Carolina i
National Bang~, to which Till
man has frequently referred,
whenever anybody hinted at his
showing signs of wealth, and
-then the bank officials might
have a grievance against us and
not accommodate us with the
~rivilege of leaving a note with
-t ~-.that we might refer to1
-when yeople get curious to
know where we got our money.
It is always considered good,
business to cultivate the friend
ship of the man who .holds the t
combination to a bank vault. 1
B. R. .Tillman does not attempt
to sustain his assertion that we
slandered him by one solitary
piece of progf. He simply says
it and that is all. We did not -
expect to say that our surmises
and our reasoning relating to
the robbery of the .whiskev re
bates forced him to come for
ward and confess the theft; our
exposure of his penitentiary
peculations was based upon
written evidence which we offer
ed to produce if the Senator de
sired it. but he does not ask for -t
it, and hopes to mislead by a
contemptuous curl of the lip, and
I-do-not-notice-you, -wave of the
hand. Tillman knows why it is
we will not be tricked into ac-]
cepting his challenge to debate<
with him, for he knows the dif- t
ference between appearing be
fore the public in cold type,
where people can read and
think, and the excitement at-i
tending a joint debate where (
the speakers have partisans to1
whoop them up. Tillman dares
not, for he has not the moralc
courage to calmly discuss his
betrayal of the people. We
dare him to write for publication I
over his signature a reply to
our editorial of the 8th inst. He 1
knows that were he to attempt
it we could take his own defensei
and convict him: we would showc
him up in his true light, and the
public would be in position toc
say whether or not we have a
merit on our side. A man whose t
record is as vulnerable as that t
of B. R. Tillman cannot face the
effect of reason, he must depende
on passion and prejudice to ac- 1
complish his ends. Who ever
heard of the accused confessing 1
,vas 1no hope of escape.- Those
vho expect Tillman to acknow- '
edge that he stole $70.000 in re
ates from whiskey, will not be
rratitied. Proof alone can bring
he confession, and we have al
eady indicated why proof is not
orth coming just at this time,
Dut be patient it may come.
Tillman has confessed receiv
ng things that he knew he had
1o right to. from the peniten
tiary, but he puts it e vege
tables" when wt. have proof.
that the vegetables from that
institutiou consisted of cabbage,
turnips. coal. wood, commercial
fertilizers, cotton seed, cotton
-eed meal, brick and other vege
tables. which he instructed the
book keeper of the institution
not to charge on the books.
rillmian virtually .confessed
having betrayed his people into
the hands of one of those des
pised corporations, by saying
that his name appeared as a di
rector because he was a United
States Senator. He says we
slandered him, but lie does not try
to show that we made false
charges-he simply denies. Does
he think his simple denial will
outweigh written e r t i fi c a t e s
which are the basis of all charges
made by us? The men furnish
ing these documents are men of
character and they do not ask
us to hide their identity, and for
that reason we asked the Sena
tor if he would like to see this
proof. If Tillman has been
slandered, why does he not act
like an honest man should, and
ot play the bluff game of a
braggart and a bully. He un
lertakes to make capital out of
our declining to accept his chal
lenge for a debate. Does he not
know that we have a right to
select our mode of fighting him,
ven if we accepted his challenge
we would not let him dictate his
:>wn terms, but he throws out a
strong hint to be invited to come
ere and we suppose he will get
the invitation: when he comes
he no* doubt will make us the
bject of his coming. We ex
pect to be present, and if he at
tempts to fool the people about
his connection with the whiskey
rebate steal and his becoming a
personal beneficiary of the pro
iucts from the State institutions,
we will have something to say,
ind we will say it in our own
The day Tillman comes here
to vindicate himself he will be
given to understand that sneer
ing denials and contemplible but
hrewd insinuations against ab
sent people will not be accepted.
Ee knows what we said about
him and the people will want
him to show it is false, which he
3an do as well in the public
prints. Ben Tillman dares not
ome out in the newspapers over
hs name and tell the truth about
his connection with the whiskey
bran sactions. nor does he dare
ive his earnest aid to force an
examination of the books of the
Mil Creek Distilling Company
ind other companies which be
Longed to that trust. If he will,
the people would soon learn of
:he whereabouts of their missing
90,00. Tillman prefers the

There are times when in the
heat of debate, all of us say
things by way of retort that
should not be uttered, and we
tind ourself in this condition.
Several months ago we had a
wordy altercation with the edi
tor of The State and we permit
ted ourself to say things which
reflected upon his personal char
acter. In this we did him an
injustice and we herewith make
retraction of the same. We have
no personal ill feeling against
the said editor, and anything
that might have been said by us
which could be so construed, or
which reflected upon his char
acter we cheerfully withdraw
and apoligize for.
Columbia, S. C., Jan. 20. 1902.
The past week has been de
void of much interest, for the
reason, it takes the first week to
et things in readiness. Sena
tor Tillman was in Columbia at
the opening of, the legislature.
iLd his presence gave rise to
the rumor that he had left his
seat in Washington where im
portant matters to the country
were being discussed, to come to
Columbia to hit John McLaurin
another lick, by getting the gen
ral assembly to take some step
looking to discrediting McLaurin
with the people-the adopting of
resolutions repudiating McLau
rin, and declaring. that inas
much as the two Senators had
signed resignations a vacancy
exis, ', and an election be held
for both seats. Of course Till
man expected. if this course was
adopted, he would himself be re
elected vithout opposition, and
successor to McLaurin would be
:hosen: possibly, some one who
be himself might suggest, but
whether Tillman had anything
to do with it or not, such was
the current rumor a ~out the city
and I believe there was founda
ion for it. Many members of
the general Assembly expressed
themselves openly to the effect
that if a new election was order
ed, they would vote for neither
'illman or .McLaurin, and two
aew men wou'ld receive their
support; this sentiment was
~rowing stronger and stronger,
then all at once I heard that
'illman said there was no va
sancy, and if the general assem
>1y had the election, it would
>e ignored by the United States
enate. Wonder if the senior
senator was itnfiunced in his de
ision by the growing sentiment
:o drop both, he and McLaurin?
I have, at two sessions suc
~eeded in having a bill passed
brough the Senate to repeal the
aw requiring a license to buy
;eed cotton, only to get it killed
n the House. Now, inasmach
ts I cannot get it repealed I have
ntroduced a bill, which has been
favorably reported from the
~ommittee, to make the license
n every county in the State,
hus doing away with the ad
vantage a non-license county has
>er a county requiring license.
larendon requires a license of
25.00 a year to buy seed cotton,
nd the adjoining county of Wil
iamsburg allows the purchase
f seed cotton without a license.

iving near the line are annoyed

ussion, and one of our own

Lgainst the bill, because he

To the Hons. Louis Appelt. Senator
and H. B. Richardson. I. M. Woods.

We. the Board of County Commis
sioners. would respectfully recommend
to your honorable delegation the fol
lowing matters which we think should
receive legislation at your hands, and
which we think will be for the better
ment of oir' count%:
We recommend that a general law
be passed, allowing County Commis
sioners to hire road overseers in each
township of their respective counties.
and the roads to be worked by the
regular road hands. under hired over
seers. each overseer to have one or
inore townships under his control. at
the discretion of the Board of County
Commissioners: or then that roads be
let out by contract, to be paid for out
of regular commutation tax of respec
Our idea for this is to secure better
labor on the roads by road hands, as
road -workmng is now almost a farce.
and road overseers as now appointed
have very little power to compel hands
to do a full day's work.
2. We recommend that all persons
liable to do road duty who would pre
far paying - commutation tax in lieu of
working roids be allowed to pay a
commutatioa tax of $1.00, which shall
be payable any time from the 15th day
or October to the first day of March
following. In case a road hand is
warned and after being warned he
would prefer paying a commutation
tax aftcr the first day of March, that
the overseer in the township be allo)w
ed to collect $2.00 from said road hand
and turn same over to the County
Treasurer, at the same time reporting
to the County Supervisor or County
Commissioners the amount he has so
paid in to the Treasury, and from
whom same was collected, and this
amount of $2.00 shall exempt said road
hand from performing road duty dur
ing that year, provided that the said
$2.00 be paid at the time when said
hand is warned or his services are
needed; and that County Commission
ers be allowed to furnish tools to said
overseer for the use of road hands, and
that road hands be required to work
anywhere they may be required, in
their respective townships, not exceed
ing four miles from their home.
3i. As the law now stands, the ages
for requiring hands to work roads run
from 18 to 55. We find that road over
seers encounter great trouble in mak
ing minors do public road duty, and we
would recommend that the law be
changed so that the ages for requiring
public road duty shall run from 21 to
At present the County Treasurer
has to pay $100 annually for his bond,
and cler'k hire which is absolutely
necessary for him to have for at least
three months during the tax collecting
time also costs him another $100.
We would recommend that the Coun
tv Treasurer of Clarendon County
either be 'paid a salary of $1000 so that
the premium on his bond will not so1
materially reduce his compensation,
and that hie may himself hire his clerk
out of said amount, or then that he be
paid a salary of $800 and you provide
100 each for his clerk hire and bond,
so that he will then receive a salary of
$800 for his services, in lieu of all com
missions, and fees for issuing execu
tions, thus making his salary the same
as that now~ paid to the Cotlnty Audi
tor'. We further rezommend that if
practicable the said salary be paid in
the same manner that the Auditor's
salary is now paid, so much by the
Countv and so much by the State, pro
rated according to respective State and
county funds collected by hium-say
500 by State and $300 by county, in
case the salary is placed at $800, and
bond and clerk hire provided for in the
same manner, or say $1,000 for every
thing and of this amnount the county
$400 and the State $600.
CLERK OF COURT.
WVe think the office of Clerk of Court
should be put on a salaried basis and
all fees which that officer collects be
paid into the county treasury. We
therefore recommend that the Clerk of
Court be paid a salary of twelve hun
dred dollars in lieu of all fees, and that
all fees collected by him be paid in
monthly to the county treasury.
In regard to the office of Probate
Judge, we do not see where we -can
make 'any recommendations which
would be a saving to the county, and
therefore recommend that the fees of
that otticer remain as they now stand.
Under the present system the Sheriff
does the work of the Magistrate at
Manning at the same salary the Sheriff
used to receive. We recommend that
the Sheriff either be paid a salary of
eight hundred dollars and let him do
the Magistrate's work, or then pay the
Sheriff $600 and give the Magistrate a
constable at $200.
We recommend that the Supervisor
be paid a salary of $800, or then that he
he paid a commission on all licenses
collected, so as to make his salary equal
to $800. The licenses collected the
past year amounted to $1200, and their
enforcement and collection, which has
been put on the county Supervisor,. en
tails a great deal of e. tra work. We,
think that if the salary of the office is
not raised to $800. that said officer
should receive a commission of at least
ten per' cent on all licenses collected by
OFFICE OF SUPT. ED.
We find that the sum of $~>00 which
was allowed the Supt. Education out of
the school fund, as a capital with which
to keep a stock of school books on hand.
is iadequate, in order that he may
kep a sufficient stock of books on hand
to meet the demands of the school-book
purchasing public. The Supt. Educa
tioa has to pay cash for books pur'
chased fromi publishing concerns, in
most instances a check accompanying
the order. With the five hundred dol
lars allowed as a captical the office has
handled something over $2000 worth of
books this season. and the demand will
scarcely become less another season, a

to buy a book, does so from the office

missioners to fix the licenses for buying
and dealinm in seed cotton, as in the
case now with Hawkers and peddlers.
and that in no case the license for pur
chasing seed cotton be less than $25.(0.
The Magistrate at St. Paul does
more, or as much work as all the other
Magistrates in the county together.
with the exception of the one at Man
ning. We recommend that his salary
be raised to $200. No recommendation
as to salary of Magistrate at Manning.
The office of Magistrate at Foreston
is an expense to the county. It
pays practically nothing into the Treas
ury, last year the income being about
S15.00 against $175 paid out by the
coanty for salaries of Magistrate and
his constable. We recommend that
this office be abolished.
About the same condition of affairs
prevails with the office of Magistrate at
Pinewood as with the one at Foreston.
We also recommed that the office of
Magistrate at Pinewood be abolished
and that the work of that section be
done by other Magistrates.
We recommend that the office of Mag
is':rate at Paxville and salary 'of same
remain as at present.
No recommendation as to .office of
Magistrate in Salem.
No recommendations as to Coroner.
The question of fradulent school
chart claims is too well known for us to
discuss with you. We would not know
how to go into details as to what legis
lation is necessary, but we recommend
that you take such action, or whatever
action, you see proper that will stop the
payment of fraudulent school chart
claims against the county. in the light
of the legislation that was enacted by
you at the last session of the General
Assembly providing that these matters
go before and be paid upon the recom
mendation of the Grand Jury.
In regard to the county's finances
you will see from the statements which
'we will send you. tha t the appropriations
in two or.three instancesand especially
in the cases of appropriations for "The
Poor" and for "roads, brides and chain
gang" have been insufficient, and that
the expenditures have far exceeded the
appropriations. These expenditures
could not be helped, and have been
made strictly in accord with an econ
omic regard for the county's interest.
We hope, however, to be able, with the
finds which will be at our disposal
from dispensary sales and seed cot
ton licenses, in addition to the regular
county taxes, to pay 100 cents on tne
dollar for all indebtedness contracted
during the fiscal year 1901. We think
that the levy and appropriations, as ap
rear upon page 768, acts of 1891 should
be allowed to remain the same for the
present year, except as to the charges
which we have recommended.
We want the authority to borrow
435,00 from the State Sinking Fund
Commission this year, as we have done
for the past several years, to defriy the
expenses of jurors, withnesses,etc., and
special matters which we have to pay
cash for, as for instance supplies for
"Poor" "Chaingang" and "Bi-idge
supplies," and so for'th.
One of the greatest evils that County
Commissioners and road officials have
to deal with is the cutting up of the
public roads by timber carts. We think
that if timber carts cannot be ruled off
the public roads, they should be taxed
an extra tax of at least ten dollars for
iach cart, for constantly cutting up the
