THE CLEMSON TRUSTEESHIP.
-ere is the view of THE :MANNING
TIMES regarding Senator Tillman's
Clemson college trusteeship:
The Kingstree Record is after Sena
tor Tillman for violating the State con
stitution by holding more than one office,
but notwithstanding the argument the
Columbia State makes on the question
in its issue Monday. we do not believe
Tiliman's trusteeship of Clemson college
is in violation of the law. Mr. Clemson,
before the constitution of 1895, named
Tillman as a life trustee, his acceptance
of the trust completed the transaction,
and no law the State can make -vill
break the trust reposed by the will.
Tillman is a lawful trustee of Clemson,
. but in our opinion be is violating the
law as trustee of Winthrop.
The inevitable logic of that position
as to Clemson college is that the funda
mental law of South Carolina is subor
dinate to the personal wishes of Mr.
Clemson at the time of his bequest; it is,
in practical effect, admission that be
cause Mr. Clemson spoke first, his voice
must prevail against the letter and spir
it of the law of the land.
Let us further illustrate, by an analo
gous case, where the reasoning of Mr.
Tillman and THE TIMES will carry
them. Suppose that "before the consti
tution of 1895" was adopted, it had been
proposed to organize at Pendleton a
bank with a half million dollars capital,
and that Mr. Clemson had agreed to
subscribe fifty thousand dollars to the
capital stock on condition that Mr. Till
man be chosen president for life; sup
pose the condition was accepted, Mr.
Tillman elected and, previous to the
adoption of the constitution of 1895, had
accepted the trust? Has the constitu
tion, which declares that no one shal
hold two offices of honor or profit sim
ultaneously, no power to make Mr. Till
man decide between his trust bank-pres
idency or his senatorship?
It is preposterous to conceive of such
impotency upon the part of the State.
It is not assumed that the common
wealth can enact a law compelling any
citizen to abanden an office of trust be
stowed by some power other than the
commonwealth, but to such an office
holder the State can and does say: "You
hold an office not given you by the
State; here is one given you by the
State; you are forbidden by the consti
tution to hold but one office at a time.
So choose between them? I you accept
this one, the other is, by that act, va
But, as we have before suggested, it
is the Supreme Court's decree upon this
question which is of real importance.
The State's logic and illustra
tions are no doubt well put, and
of course nothing but a decree of
the Supreme Court will settle the
issue, nevertheless from a lay
man's view as we see it, the nam
ing of Tilimnan as a life trustee in
Clemson's will, was not an ap
pointment to an office, ,nor is
Tillman as life trustee an officer
of Clemson college, and hence he
is not violating that portion, so
far as Clemson and the' Senate
concerned, of the constitution
which forbids holding more than
Mr. Clemson in his life time
had no power to create a public
office and no power to commission
a, man to hold a pnublic office. He
was the owner of property which
he bequathqd to South Carolina
undercertain conditions, Captain
Tillman was named in this will
to see that the conditions con
tained in the will were carried
out, this did not make him an of
ficer of the State, nor does he
hold a commission from the State
as such trustee. The will alone
is his authority for acting. It
surely will not be contended by
The'State. that the bequest made
by Mr. Clemson before the con
stitution of 1895 can be upset
without decreeing the will in
valid. Then if the will is good,
the bequests made therein must
stand, and if Mr. Tillman is not
holding a commission from the
State he is not an office holder,
and his authority under the will
comes in the nature of a private
confidence that the State has no
right to question, either by its
subsequently adopted constitu
tion or by any statute it might
The bank illustration is not al
together analogous. It would in-:
deed be preposterous if the laws
of South Carolina prevented a
president or a director if a state
bank from holding a public office.
There is no power to make a man
decide between a bank-presidency
and a senatorship. Why? Be
cause banks and other corpora
tions, while they are limited by
statute, they are not public offi
cers, if they are,, why is it that
the Governor is not required to
issue a commission to every cor
poration official, whether it be a
bank, railroad. newspaper or oth
er chartered institution? In our
opi~ion the question to be ans
vered, is, does Tillman as a life
trustee of Clemson college hold
a public office?
HOI4OR OF CONGRESSMEN.
Whi~e things are hot in Wash
mngton, congress should convert
itself into a mutual protection as
sociation. It is a fine opportuni
ty for the two great political par
ties to get together. The rebuke
given to the President by the
House of Representatives was al
most unanimous but when these
solons again go before the people
for re-election, many of them wil.

objected to secret service men
looking into their acts.

ident's message which deals with

The President is an impulsive
man, but at the same time he
keeps thoroughly posted on what

when he finds a wrong he expos

they continue to regard his atti

Congress may violate the law,
rob the government, or be par
ties to deals in which the goveru
ment is interested, but according
to their recent action, any inti

sented, and tabled as disrespect
ful. This may work for a time,
but a day of reckoning will come,
and these same men will have to
account for not being willing to
have light turned on to their own
conduct as well as the conduct of
some individual not honored with

esty of a congressman.
ONLY INCIPIENT ROTTENNESS.
In his exposure of Senator
Tillman's little Oregon land-grab
scheme, President Roosevelt un
questionably made out a prima
faciae case. The force of the
charge was weakened at the out
set, though, by the assumed
tude of the President, who has
lately busied himself very much
in efforts to uncover some evil
doers, while shutting his eyes
vigorously in directions from
which the smell of smoke was
coming in almost stifling vol
To the charges preferred by the
President, Senator Tillman er
ters a sort of plea of confession
and avoidance, admitting the
documentary evidence set forth,
but protesting that he did not
violate any law, that he simply
sought to buy some public land
as any citizen had a right to do,
and that he proved his good faith
by exposing the matter when he
discovered that there was a swin
dle on foot. As further substan
tiating this position he sets up
his record fur integrity and good
faith. He courts and demands a
searching investigation and says
he awaits cheerfully ,and wlli
gladly abide by the verdict. To
this extent Senator Tillman's de
fense is wortby of full considera
tion, while his personal thrusts
at Mr. Roosevelt, charges of mal
ice, etc., are in the main mere
plays to the gallery. The main
trouble about the whole matter is
that Mr. Tillman has not been
content to serve as a Senator of
the United States, to which posi
tion he was elected by South Car
olina, but, he has allowed himself
to become infected by the money
bug, and he has sought by one
means or another to accumulate
wealth while nominally serving
The fact that others, and pos
sible fellow Senators, have done
similarly is neither here nor
there. He has probably been
guilty of nothing more than "in
cipient rottenness," his favorite
charge against others a few years
ago, but he did not keep constant
ly before him the truth as assert
ed by Paul the Apostle that "the
love of money is the root of all
evil." If he had never laid aside
his public duties to engage in
money making he would in all
propability never have coveted a
few "quarter sections of well-tim
beredland" away out in the State
As to the merits of the case as
it stands, that is probably subor
dinated in the general public es
timation to the present dramatic
combat between the Big Stick~
and the Pitchfork, and as there
is a promise of more to come in
that line the public will be on the
alert to applaud each home thrust
from whichever side it may come.
We hope and believe that Sena
tor Tillman will so act that his
enemy will be aware of him, but
we are sorry that he ever wanted
some of that Oregon land.

EIectricity and Magnetism.
As to what electricity anld magnetism
are "in themselves"-that is to say, as
to their real nature-nothing is known.
They are absolute mysteries, baffling
the acutest research into their Inner
most secrets. But about their modes
of action it is possible to say some
thing definite. For example, electricity
appears to depend for its action upon
a medium, while magnetism, like grav
Ity, acts at a distance and by means of
no visible go-between. Place two mag
nets In vacuo or even place a solid
tween the magnets and we still find
that their mutual action depends sole
ly on their relative position and is not
perceptibly modified by placing any
substance between them unless that
substance happens to be one of the
magnetic metals.--New York American.
