Tillman Says He iMcans to Keep It to
His Hack Right Along.
South Carolina's Governor Bcsponds in Kind
to tho Senior Senator's Attack Upon Him.
Great Excitement in tho Crowd, and Two
or Three Bows Imminent.
Citaklestov, S. C., Juno 2L Tbe campaign
meeting at Lancaster to-day was not unaccom
panied by porao excitement, although it was not
as lively as had teen eapected in view of yes
terday s occurrences at Cheater. The guberna
torial and degression il candidates had tho
opening and wero followed by Senator Butler
aDd Governor Tillman. Uutlermade an excel
lent bpeecn, defending his cause In the Senate
and expressing regret that he had been com
pelled to reply to Tillman's charges In tho eplrlt
ho had employed at Chester
Uo insisted that he -would not permit anyono
to slander and misrepresent him, and that ho
would discuss and dissect Tillman's public rec
ord when and whero and how he pleased. Ho
denied the charge that had been circulated In
Lancaster county that ho was an infidel and
said on this point:
4I can rnly say that I was raised by a Chrls
tlau mother, and 1 hare been married to a noble
Chribtian nomau lor thirty-four years, and that
tho charges that 1 am au infidel Is as untrue as
it is unwarranted. I recognize the supremacy
of a great and good God and the saving power of
a great Saviour."
Whon Governor Tillman was called he was re
ceived with much choiring. Ho said In begin
ning that office had not been sweet to him; that
the whceis of state bad dragged along a stumpy
road, and that tho records would show ho had
dune more work than all tho Goernors since
tho war. At Chester ho had not opened his
mouth In reply to the indignities heaped upon
him by Gen. Butler, which were fouler and
blacker than had been made against any man.
Yaucy bhor ard, who was out in tho crowd,
cried out:
'ou took them."
Several hundred men at onco sprang to their
feet In expectation of a row, and Got. Tillman
shouted back In reply: m
Yei, I tell you, you cowardly hound, why I
took them, and I'll meet you whenever you want
to I took them becruse I, as Governor of tho
btate, could not allbrd to create a row itt a public
gathering and havo our people murder each
other like dogs "
Mien ard answered, but his reply could not be
heard. Ihe men around tho stand woro all in a
commotion and yelling for Tillman, while the
women in the audience began to run away.
1 Ulinau, Butler the chairman, and others called
to the ladles-tocomo bads as the trouble was
over, and they did bo Governor 'llllman waved
his ban Js to tho crowd to sit don n and then
cried out: A few puppies around here can
hae their tails and necks cut off if they want to,
or both n
Continuing, h said: 'Gen. Butler protends
that I hud made an imputation on his character.
I'Iih insult was at Kock IIUL I said that the
1,W men had been hauled thore by some one to
h u rah for him, and I asked if they had been
bent there by a corruption fund. I had ridi
culed th-m as Coxeyltes, as tools of corpora
tions, aud 1 did say that Borne one paid their
way there.
I wanted to know who it was and I indicated
that somebody had a corruption fund and did not
know who had the distributing of it, and I did
not charge him or any one else with using it. If
the general superintendent of the Richmond
andUanvtlle railroad did not dolt, and if not
Cleveland, and if not the whisky ring, and If uot
Wail street, some ono had raided a corruption
fund to pay thesn men's fares hlch were to buy
up yourfceuatorbhip. If he felt aggrieved at the
Insinuation ns au old neighbor of mine In Edge
field, could not ho have come to mo and said:
"Did jou meau to Bay that 1 am responsible lor
"That Is tho way he should have done if ho
had been a gentleman, but he did not do this.
He seamed to bo glad for an excuse to play tho
role of a bulldozer. If over in Kdgefleld wo in
sult each other there is generally a fight or a
funeral af tern ard. General Butler had declared
in an interview that he gave to the Associated
Tress after tho Darlington row that be wanted
the campaign conducted on a high plane, yet he
charged me with being a braggart and a bully
In that interview. General Butler, who was
sitting, remarked: And I stand by it yet. Yet
when I opened at Bock Hill I tried to address
myself sololy to the issues, and his speech was
full of innuendoes and personal suggestions. At
Yorkvllle he jpoke of Issues, and I then exposed
his Coxey business, and, what is more, I expect
to keep it to his back at every meeting as a mus
tard plaster until I get some kind of an explan
Turning to Gen. Butler, ho said: "Henceforth
I shall caB you Coxey Butler."
Gen. Butler (laughing): "That's all right; I
don't care.
Then Tillman went on to say: "In Edgefield
men hare too much pride to talk of bully
ragging. I tnought yesterday when the General
dlgraced himself by calling tho Governor a
bully and a coward and a bracgart and a thief
by indirection that he, too, had too much Btate
pride for such. I was mistaken; for ho out-in-uendoes,
if such a thing Is possible."
It wonld take a column to report all that Gov.
Tillman said and all that the crowd said for and
against him.. Two or three times there was
Imminent danger of a row, but fortunately the
affair passed on wlthont actual violence or

Prof. JTebster Edgerly the Subject of
an Indignation Meeting.
Irregularities of Management Are Charged.
He it Said to Havo a Part That is Not
Above Suspicion Significant Letter to the
Faoultr Aliases He Uied.
Prof. Webster Edgerly, principal of tho Mar
tyn College of Oratory, was tho cause of an In
dignation meeting last night of students, grad
uates, and faculty of his schooL Tho professor,
happily for himsolf, U enjoying the scenes
round Genoa, Italy.
The faculty of the college was represented by
Rov. Franklin J. Miller, Rev. Charles C Mor
hart, and Dr. Charles T. Caldwell.
Tho cause of the outburst of feeling was that
President Edgerly would not allow tho senior
class of 94 to graduate, although he had pub
licly advertised in a circular that "tho present
graduating class', both individually and colled
lely, stands without a peer in the history of
Martyn College."
The committee In charge of tho meeting lost
no time nor spared themselves iu their labor to
get underneath the methods of managing the In
stitution. W. M. Mourer presided and C A.
Harbauch acted as secretary.
No action of a definite character was taken.
It was slated that tho real object of the meeting
was simply to talk on the matter, so that tho
public could be informed as to tho way that tho
college was run. At his request Secretary Hor
baugh read tho following commlcatiou, which
bad boen sent to the members of the faculty
and which was not replied to:
You are doubtless awaro of a feeling of dissat
isfaction among the pupils wno have attended
Martyn College during the term of schooljust
closed, resulting. In part, from the refusal of its
president to grant diplomas to those who stood
the requisite examinations, although he himself
has declared tuat "theptesent graduating class,
both Individually and collectively, stands with
out a peer In the history of Martyn College "
We assure you, however, that the dissatisfac
tion of the senior class, who were refused diplo
mas. Is not the only sentiment afioat against the
college, but merely au incident; that dissatisfac
tion is shared by tho pupils and patrons who
have known the institution since its organiza
tion. W e feel sure that you cannot but regret that
such an unfavorable sentiment should exist
against any Institution of art or learning, but es
pecially so against ono with which your name is
At a meeting held by the pupils a few even
ings since, of which you are already cognizant,
there were present those wuo havo been ac
quainted with the workings of the college from
its Infancy, and also something of the previous
history oMts present head. It is unnecessary
tor us to burden you with a request for the solu
tion of all the questions advanced by those In at
tendance, but we trust you will be able to ex
plain the following, viz.:
1. Why has the college so many names'
2. Why was a Summer course In elocution ad
vertised over the country and then nor hold?
3. Why are two catalogues published, one for
circulation in Washington and one for out-of-town
4. W hy aro out-of-town catalogues different
from city catalogues
5. Why are tho names of the faculty given In
the out-of-town catalogue and not In the cata
logue for W ashlngton?
CL Why are the names of people placed In the
catalogue as members of the faculty without the
knoledgeorconsontof such persons; especially
when such persons positively decline to be in
any way connected with tho college
7. Why did the eighty entertainments,
lecture, etc, promised as a part of the course
for lbSCf-91 never take place hy did the prom
ised banquets fall to materallzc? Why a great
many other things promised in the course but
not full! lied1
b. Is Webster Edgerly's standing In tho dra
matic profession such as to enable him to assist
meritorious pupils In j&ecuring positions In the
profession? Has his influence ever been Instru
mental in securing positions for any of his pupils
either as teachers or on the stage?
9 Why does Webster Edgerly (Everett Rals
ton), in hl3 circulars advertising his Health Club,
'positively guarantee" to permanently cure dis
eases which the medical profession have pro
nounced incurable?
10. Why were diplomas refused the senior
11. Why was no explanation offered for such
12. Why did the commencement notice in the
Washington Post lead tha public to believe that
all the pupils participating In the entertainment
were graduates Who wrote the notice
li W hy wre tho diplomas signed by Webster
Edgerly and Edmund bhaftesbury when both are
ono and the same person?
14. Why are there twelve In the faculty and
only one to determine the standing of the clas?
15. Why are the petty prejudices of the presi
dent given weight In determining the standing
of pupil irrespective of merit? ,
16. Why doe- a chartered Institution with a
faculty of twelve (on paper) permit but one
member of that faculty to pass Judgment on the
merits of a pupil, and from whose Judgment
there Is no appeal
17. Why does tho Institution obtain testimon
ials in a questionable manner?
IS. Why does Webster Edgerly puff bhaftes
bury Everett Ralston, of Health Club fame, and
King Wallace, the novolist? Why do they all
pull one another? Who knows any of them but
19 Whydoe4 Webster Edgerly buy "Frog-in-your-throat,"

and dispose of them to the credulous public at
5U cents per box, as a cure for certain internal
20. Whv did Albert W. Edgerly discontinue
practice of law in New England?
21. Why is it desirable to keep the irregulari
ties of the Instltutiou from tho notice of the pub
lic by endeavoring to influence the press?
We are unanimous in declaring that tho man
ner tn which Martyn College is conducted by
W ebster Edgerly shall be brought tn the public.
It Is only Justice to the future would-be patrons
of the institution that such steps should be
We would be pleised to receive an early reply
to this communication, as It Is not our desire to

tie Will Both Speak and Vote Against the
Passaco of tho Income Tax
There was considerable talk last sight aa to
the position Senator Daris will take with refer
ence to the income tax. It was stated by some
in the most positive terms that the Senator had
Intimated tobls Immediate rieuds that he will
vote tor the measure
It is not believed that there Is any foundation
In this statement. The Hues has it from reli
able sources that Senator Davis will both speak,
and vote against the adoption of the provision.
Only two votes were takeu yesterday In the
Senate, one on Mr. Aldrlcb's motion to limit the
operation of the tax to January 1, lifts, and the
other by Mr. l'cffer, to establish a graduated
Income tax Both wero defeated. The remainder
of the afternoon was spent in a running debate
on the tax. In wnich Messrs. Uoar, Feller, Voor
hees, and Ilill participated.
lie Denounce, the Sugar Trust "Cor
ner's" Purposes to Vote for the
Antl-Option BUI.
The House consumed all ot yesterday In a
discussion of the anti-option bill and will
take a vote to-day. The speakers were
Messrs. Grosvenor, Berry, 'Wheeler, Stook
dale and Fence in favor ot the the bill, and
Messrs. Covert, Bartlett, and Boatner against
Mr. Grosvenor'i speech was altogether the
best effort.
"The way to help the farmer," said he,
"was to retain a law under which the produc
tion ot sugar increased 50 per cent., and if
you want to do something for agriculture, do
not turn over the sugar question to the sugar
trust, located in New York, which is the most
villainous, the most oppressive, the most ras
cally institution in the country. Republican
He proposed to vote for the bill because he
thought that at least some effort should be
mode to aid the agriculturists, and because
it would relieve them ot the fear that they
were being oppressed by unjust legislation,
and moreover because he believed that cor
ners did operate to injure the farmer.
The question ot amendments having ob
truded itself, the chairman decided that the
best way to settle it finally would be by hav
ing tho committee rise and the question de
cided In the House. Accordingly the commit
tee arose, and after some squabbling a com
promise was effected, whereby the order of

He Unmercifully Scores Populist Allen
for So Calling Him.
Outcome of Insinuations that Allen "Bar
gained" Away His Vote on the Tariff.
Both Charge Unparliamentary Conduct
Hot Words Pass Between Them.
The sensational feature of the day In the
Senate yesterday was tbe personal attack
made upon Mr. Allen, the Nebraska Populist,
by Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire.
The latter scored Mr. Allen unmercifully for
applying the epithet "baboon" to him
Wednesday; but in the Nebraska Populist he
met a foeman worthy of his steel.
At tho conclusion. of Senator Hill's speech
Mr. Chandler roso to a question ot personal
privilege in connection with the passage at
arms between Senator Allen and himself. He
had, he explained, heard what Mr. Allen had
said in his reply to him only in a fragmentary
fashion, and had missed entirely the oppro
brious epithet, "baboon," applied by the Sen
ator from Nebraska to himself. Mr. Allen,
who was in the chamber, moved over near to
Mr. Chandler when the latter began.
"The Senator from Nebraska," Mr. Chand
ler said, "on yesterday stated that when I
charged that his vote had been bargained for
I stated what was false and what he believed
I know to be false when I made it.
"I did not make any insinuation," said Mr.
Chandler, "but what I stated I believed to be
true. I charged in effect that ho moved to
place lumber on the free list under tho threat
that If it were not so placed he would vote
agulnst the bill. The truth of that charge is
contained is this Record. After the sugar
vote had been taken yesterday, the Senator
from Nebraska arose and again udertlsed to
the Democratic managers tho fact that his
vote on tho passage of tho bill was doubtfuL
He then retired from the chamber and in a
few moments came back nnd moved to place
lumber, rough and planed, on the free list.
"I bad understood that an agitation had
been going on on tho other side of the cham
ber to have certain kinds of dressed lumber
placed on the dutiable list, when suddenly
all opposition on that side goes down before
tho Senator's motion to placo lumber on the
free list. That motion was made immediately
after he had publicly announced that his vote
wa3 doubtful. It was in tbe bargain. I be
lieved it then; I believe it now. I simply in
quired of the .Senator whether the bargain
bud been closed; whether it was complete. I
made the inquiry and I do not think he was
warranted in becoming indignant and using
tbe unparliamentary language of which he
was guilty.
"I do not see why Senators should be so
sensitive on the subject of the bargains that
are being made here. It was distinctly stated
by the Senator from Maryland (Mr. Gorman)
in a carefully prepared speech that neither
the House bill nor the bill as it came from
tbe Finance Committee could command a
majority of votes on this floor, and that there
fore concessions, arrangements, bargains, or
anything vou choose to call tnem, had been
made to secure such a majority and effect the
passage of the bill.
"The Senator from Texas (Mills), and the
Senator from Missouri (Vest), repeatedly have
bemoaned the hard conditions that made
these bargains necessary. That such bar
gains were made is not only an open secret,
it is an open avowal. Yet, when 1 venture to
allude to a epeclllc bargain and bring it home
to the Senator from Nebraska, he resents it
as an Intimation ot corruption, and replies to
it with opporbrlous epithets in unparliament
ary language. Why does the Senator feel
resentful when I inquire whether tho bargain
is closed so that we shall no longer expect to
see him dodge in and out. The whole thing
was open and patent to the whole country,
and tho Senator Instead of becoming indig
nant, ought to have calmly admitted that be
bad been landed and secured In the Demo
cratic camp.
"I submit," said Mr. Chandler, turning to
Mr. Allen, who sat within twenty feet of him
across the aisle,"tbat under the circumstances
the Senator was not justified in tho words be
used. I havo never used opprobrious epi
thets or unparliamentary language on this
Boor, no matter how pointed my remarks may
hae been. I never nave and I never will.
"I regrot," said he deliberately in conclu
sion, "I havo discoered that tbe early sur
roundings of this Senator before he entered
this body were such as not to allow him to
observe tbe common courtesies which all gen
tlemen regard even in the most heated parti
san debate. Tho Senator from Nebraska is to
be pitied rather than censured lor what he
oould not helD."
A dead silence greeted this remarkable at
tack. Mr. Allen was pale but calm when he
rose to rcplv. "This is the fourth time," he
began, in a low but steady voice, "that the
Senator from New Hampshire has seen fit to
speak ot 'bargains' tn connection with my
vote. I do not know whether the lacguace
is parliamentary. I am not skilled in par
liamentary procedure. But I do know it is
untruo and ungentiemanly.
"I think be made the insinuation deliber
ately, knowing it was false. He has tried to
place me in tbe position of a trafficker of
'votes. Tbe insinuation or stigma that I have
trafficked with my vote, that I have agreed to
voto for this measure In consideration ot con
cessions made or to be made, is untrue.
"If I were wberol could mako it plainer,"
he added, looking Mr. Chandler in the eye,
"I would make it plainer. I made a motion
a fuw weeks ago to strike lumber from the
dutiable list, as I had a right to do. I havo a
right to get what I can for my people. I am
not bound to the Democratic or Republican
party, but am un bumble representative ot a
new party. As such I am more or less a
skirmisher between old party lines.
"I repel tho low, dirty insinuation ot tho
senior Senator from New Hampshire," he
said In conclusion, raising his voice until it
rang throughout the chamber, "and I reiter
ate and reaffirm with all tho energy I possess
what I said j esterduy."
"What tho Senator has said," said Mr.
Chandler, jumping to his feet as Mr. Allen sat
down, "only emphasizes what I said a month
ago, namely, that be does not comprehend
the courtesy that characterizes debate in this
The Senate sat breathless for fully a minute
after Mr. Chandler resumed bis seat. This
closed the episode.
