THE PRESS AT THE SEASIDE.
To undertake to describe the
meeting of the State Press asso
ciation at the Isle of Palms las1
week, would be an impossiblE
task. It was the greatest, both
from a business and a social
standpoint, in the history of the
association. The attendance was
large-the largest for years, and
all seemed ready for the jolly
good time. Riddock & Byrns,
the hotel proprietors. spared no
time or expense to make their
guests feel at home and happy,
every comfort was looked after
by them, and every attention giv'
en regardless .of expense. These
hotel proprietors deserve more
than the thanks of the news
paper fraternity, every man and
woman of them should urge upon
their friends to .visit the sea
shore hotel at the Isle of Palms,
where health and pleasure is cer
tain to be the reward. Did wE

tions given the association b5

craft was all to the good: Maj.
J. C. Hemphill of the News and
Courier, Mr. Thomas P. Waring
of the Evening Post were untir
ing in their efforts. They neve
rested a moment, and we know
of no two men in South Carolina
who can make people happier.
Mr. "'Billie" Ball of the News and
Courier was chairman of the re
ception committee and, like a
good general,he gave the orders
but the committee did the rest.
Hon. P. H. Gadsden, president
of the consolidated railroad was
a host within himself, to him is
due the credit for many, many
kindnesses, that the craft will
. never forget. He was made at
honorary member of the associ
ation as a mark of appreciatior
for his generous courtesies.-s

lieve it was that said: "Every
body worked but the chairman,
and he drank beer all day.'
Ball was in evidence whenever a
fresh keg was tapped, but dur

chewed paper. Ball was alright.

ed the navy yard, an education
within itself, and then fell intc
the arms of the (German's at the
shutzenplatz, the greatest spot
on earth for a good time. Emij
Jahnz was the host,and his coun
trymen,women and children were
his aides. There never was a
more whole-souled reception giv
en to a people than the German
Rifle club gave to the South Car
olina State Press association. It
was frolic and fun,from the time
the gates were thrown open, and
when the hour to leave arrived,
the party only consented because
it had to. Next year at the Shutz
enplatz the Germans of Charles
- ton will entertain the National
Shutzen Bund,over 100 rifle clubs
from all over the nation. These
clubs are composed of men oi
means, and they will come tc
Charleston for a good time. It
is a bio- undertaking to entertain
so larse an organization, and if
our Charleston friends go at it
as was indexed by the en
tertainment given the Press as
sociation, it will be a huge af~
fair, and the people throughout
the State should join in the cele
bration and go to the great na
tional Shutzen feast. It will
teach them how to live and be
shappy. At the proper time we
propose to have more to say or
this subject, but for the present
we will wish for Emil Jahnz the
great success that his open.
hearted people deserve.
Charleston is noted the world
over for her kind treatment of
guests. but never in her history
has she excelled this occasion.
It was a love feast from begin
ning to the end, and when the
invitation was extended to"Come
* back next year" the association
was only too glad to. accept-it
knows a good thing.
There has been much said
about Charleston being~ a dead
city, and this has been so often
repeaied that some people are
disposed to believe it, but if those
who have been misled will only
go to Charleston and look into
existing conditions they will see
that Charleston not only has a
bright future, but she is advanc
ing now. How can a city with
a "Phil" Gadsden be deady No,
Charleston is not dead, but very
much alive., and we predict with.
in the next few years her sea
port will be tilled with ships
from all nations bringing to the
South the wares and peoples
from every clime. We looked
for Charleston to become the
greatest commercial sity in the
If any ocher public man besides
Senator B. R. Tillman was to
proclaim that he can walk into a
barroom with as much reverance
as he can a church, how long
could he command the respect of
the peopie? Is it not an evidence
of being drunk with power when
a man impudently uses such an
outrageous expression" Benja
min R. Tillman is a strong man,
? a man of fine ability. He has
o done excellent service in the
United States seni. The peo
ple, regardless of former faction
al divisions appreciate his worth,
and are going to -return him to
e the senate without opposition, and
vet notwithstanding this laying
aside of former opposition, and
e thereby mamnfesting a desire for
> unity and peace. Tillman, in the
pride of his opinion, while the
people are trying to get loose
from the grasp of the whiskey
octupus, instead of appreciating
what the people are doing for
him, not only goes over the
country trying to revive the bit
terness of former days, but act
ually insulting the people, by
saying to them that he has as
much reverance for a barroom as
he has for a church.
There is no necessity for Sen
ator Tillman to go about urging
the people to hold on to the
State dispensary, neither is there
any necessity for him to take the
stump in behalf of any particular
candidate. If those in control cr
the State dispensary cannot
maintain it, he above all men
should let it go, for he has pub
licly declared he "would help
bill it if it is corrupt." That it is
corrupt, Tillman has often de
clared. He has even gone so far
as to criticize the Governor for
not kicking the board -of Direct
ors out of office. He intimated
strongly that John Bell Towill
was the receiver of bribes. He
charged Boykin with swindling
the State in the label transaction,
yet instead of helping to kill it if
he found it corrupt, he is making
the effort of his life to fasten its
grasp more firmly.
No other man in South Caro
lina would be tolerated to do as
Tillman is doing, If any other
man without opposition was to
undertake to defy the executive
committee by refusing to comply
with its requirements, and under
took to hold independent meet
ings he would be hissed, and if
he were to make the declaration
that he "could walk into a bar
room with as much reverance, as
he could a church." he would be
taking chances of being roughly
handled. Tillman, however, is
a privileged character. He has
such a hold upon the masses that
he could take off his shoe and
command them to kiss his toe,
and many a partizan-blinded
creature would obey.
It is time, high time, that men
should have more respect for
themselves than to permit their
manhood to be insulted. We have
no quarrel with all of the admir
ers of Senator Tillman, but there
is a class of his admirers who
forget that Tillman is human and
can make mistakes as well as
others, and when he makes mis
takes, instead of acknowledging
his errors, they close their eyes
to them, proclaim them virtues,
and then condemn those who will
not think with them.
WANTS THE JOB.
If Senator Manning is correct
ly reported in the newspapers, he
recentiy declared he favored the
repeal of the Brice act, which
act permits the'people to vote out
the dispensary if they so choose.
Senator Manning must have
again changed his mind. He was
opposed to the dispensary, but
when the gubernatorial bee be
gan buzzing in his bonnet, he
went up to Clemson college, had
a conference with Tillman, and
came away a convert to the dis
pensary. He voted for the Brice
act, helped to put it on the stat
ute books to become a law.
Senator Tillman comes into the
campaign and among his declar
ations,is for.a repeal of the Brice
Act, Manning is now a ' convert
to the repeal of the Brice Act
idea also, and we are beginning
to think Manning is like the lit
tle boy who got the bicycle from
John Wannamaker. A pair of
street arabs were standing -in
front of Wannamaker's great de
partment store,admiring a hand
so'me-bicycle in the show win
dow. Mr. Wannamaker came out
and remarked to the boys that
the one who answered his ques
tions to suit him would get the
bicycle. He asked them their
names,one wasPatrick Muldoon,
the other was Jakie Einstein.
Patrick who do you love most?,
asked Mr. Wannamaker,the mer
chant prince and Sunday school
saperintendent. My mother,an
swered Patrick. Well Jakie,
who do you love miost? Jesus,
answered Jakie. Good, said Mr.
Wannamaker, it is your bicycle.
But Jakie, judging from your
name you are a Jew. how came
you to answer that you love Je
sus? Jakie threw up the palms
of his dirty hands and with a
merry twinkle in his eye replied,
"Mr. Wannamaker, I wanted
that bicycle." And so it ap
pears to be with Mr. Man
ning; opposed to the dispensary,
now favoring it, favors the .Brice
Act, now that Tillman declares
against it, he becomes opposed
to it. Why? Manning wants
to be governor. The only dis
pensary candidate in the bunch
who has consistently stood by
the State dispensary is Cole L.
Blease. Jakie Einstein wanting
the bicycle, professed to love Je
sus to get it. Manning, Sloan,
and McMahon are now profess
ing to love the dispensary,-hide,
hoofs and horns to get the gov
ernorship. There is no sincerity
Senator Tillman contends that
the State dispensary can be purl
fled of corruption, if honest men
ag: put in control. Where will
he find the honest men who will
risk their reputations by taking
hold of an institution that is in
herently foul? The Senator may
as well claim hell will freeze in
miid-summer, as to contend that
honest men will manipulate with
whiskey and remain pure.
If after these many years hon
esty has found no resting place
in the dispensary, e x c e p t of
course,when Tillman bought the
goods for the concern, how can
it be expected that honesty will
now ask for a speaking acquain
tance with it? Tillman is the
only honest man who ever had
anything to do with the State
dispensary. The rest were put
there by his enemies to steal.
The idea of a man having as
much reverance for a barroom,
where drunken ribaldry is
the rule, as he has for a church
where the thoughts of man are
led to the an gelic choruses
above. This fearful expression
could only have been made by a
man who boastfully exclaims "I
do not fear God, Man or the Dev
il," and such an man to be held
up as the leader of a religious
people. What a pity a man of
Tillman's usefulness, brilliant
riind and capability for good,can
in a moment of partizan braga
docia make use of such a fool
ish expression. He certainly can
not mean what he says. Why,
an outcast from society would
have more respect for his fellow
man than to boast of having
more reverance for a saloon
than for a church. We hope
that Senator Tillman was mis
quoted for his family sake, and
for the sake of the State's de
We note in the Columbia cor
respondence of yesterday's News
and Courier, the statement that
drafts for the dispensary are be
ing paid by the State Treasurer,
but the names of the parties in
whose favor the money was
drawn were not stated," and the
correspondent goes on to state,
such is not the case with any
other State institution. Why is
it that monies paid out for the
State dispensary should have
the names of the parties inter
ested kept secret? This is surely
a strange proceedeur, and some
body should have the authority
to investigate and ascertain the
meanin'g of doing business that
way. There has been too much
secrecy about this liquor busi
ness, and because of this sec
recy, our roads and bridges have
gotten in a dilapidated condition,
our school terms shortened, our
taxes increased and the State
held up to scorn and derision.
The newspapers of South Car
olina deserve all they are get
ting from his nerveship, the sen
ior senator. He is handing out
to them a hot roast seasoned
with tobasco sauce. if they had
quietly ignored him, instead of
devoting columns and pages of
free advertising, he would today
be as docile as a lamb, but they
have chronicled his every utter
ance, and his every movement,
in season and out of season; by
doing so they have made the
man an intolerant tyrant, and
being without opposition, he is
taking much delight in showing
his utter contempt for the press,
a thing he would not dare do if
he had an opponent.
Had it not been for the news
papers, the weeklies especially,
Tillman would have died "abpr
nin",they made his fight for him,
and it is to them he is due much,
but because some of them choose
to regard his interference in our 1
State politics wrong, and his
manifest disposition to dictate.
out of reason with his earlypro- I
fessions, he unloads his wrath 1
upon them, and if left to him he<
would either suppress these for
mer friends, or make them advo-<
cate such principles as would
make their honest manhood re
coil- with shame.
The great hue and cry, of the
day is whiskey, as though ther
very existence of the State de
pended upon it. To listen the
shrieks of some of these dema
gogues,one would think that our
salvation depended upon main
taning the dispensary and elect- a
ing its henchmen to office. These
misguided creatures imagine they
are statesmen, but it takes but_
little discernment to discover
them yelpers in the trail of the
lead dog. They know, or rath
er should know, that if whiskey r
flowed from every stream our
~spiritual or* material welfare
would not be enhanced. If our
county government does not get
'intelligent attention our roads
and bridges will become a waste -
