McYaurin's Position as it Appears
to an Outsider.
Mr. W. E. Curtis, corresponient of
the Chicago Record-Herald, who wajs
recently in Charleston and othr parts
of South Carolina studying the politi
cal situation developed by Senator Mc
Laurin, writes to his paper from Co
lubniia his impressions of the case.
le says:
" The politics of South Carohina are
in what may be called an interesting
situation, but to appreciate the signi
ficance one must take into considera
tion a few events in history. Before
the war South Carolina was ruled by
what is familiarly known as the "plan
tation aristocracy," a close and exclu
sive clan which was aulocratic and in
dependent. After the war came what
is known as tile "carpet-bag'l period,
when former soldiers and camp fol
lowerp of the Union army organized
the newly enfranchisedi negroes into a
Republican party and controlled the
oiles and the finances of the Stae.
These were overthrown by force-a
political revolution. Senator Tillman
says, " We bhot 'Um, we scared 'ei,
we cheated 'ei, and we drove 'eiii
away from the polls." Then the ex
soldier came into power, the "Confed
crate brigadier." Nobody could get
an oice or exercise any influence un
less lie had served in the Southern
army, and if lie had left a leg or an
arm upon the battlefield or carlried the
marks of the conflict on his person his
influence and position was advanced.
During the rule of the "Confederate
brigadier'' the Farmers' Alliance was
-organized and Senator Tillman emerg
ed from obscurity to become the politi
cal dictator of the State. lie has been
an absolute monarch. His will has
been law, and the great voung mass
of the Democrats have stood by him
and obeyed his orders in a most re
iatkable manner. Neither Bryan in
Nebraska, nor Croker in New York,
) t
nor Gorman in Maryland, nor Ilanna
in Ohio has ever had so complete and
unquestioned authority as Tillman.
The old aristocracy, the commercial
clement, tile manufacturers and other
people of means have been opposed to
Tillman and his Populistic ;o'ey, but
he has preferred their opposition to
their support because it has strenigth
aned him with the "woolly hat" ele
ment in the country, as lie rural vo
ters are termed. But this opposition 1
has never organized. It has realired t
that it was in a hopelass minority and i
that resistaIc3 to Tillman was useless.
The Republican party is practically t
extinct. The negroes no longer vote i
and the whute Republicans. are so few I
in numbers that they are only able to C
fill the Federal oflices. They have V
maintained a nominal organization for I'
the sake of sectiing recognition at 8
Presidential conventions and in the dis- a
tribution of patronage, and have not 1
encouraged anyone to join their party
because of fear the new comers mght r
seek oflice. I
This was the situation in South Car- I
olina last winter when Senator Mc. 8
Laurin, a young nan of good family,
excellent character, unq lestioned in
tegrity, but limited ability, took an
independent stand in national legisla- C
tion and gave his hearty support to the I
policy of the Republican administra- 1
tion. It was not a new thing for Mc- r
Laurin. EHe was in the habit of voting ~
with the Republicans now and then c
and against his own party on the tariff ~
and~ currency qjuestions, bo0th ini the 11
house of Represeiitatives and ini the (
Senate, but had never gone so far be- t
fore, and had sup~ported1 Bryani both in
1896 and 1900. McLaurin comes from I
the southeastern part, of the Slate,
where his family are planters, well-to- 1
do people of Scotch-Irish ancestry. It,
is saidt that he was originally intended
-for the ministry, but dIriftedi into the a
law, was electedi to the L:egislattiure, apl- I
pointedl Attornecy General of the State, I
was sent to Congrsss to fill an tin
exp~ired ternm and formally elected at<
the next campjaignl. lie pleasedl the
people and gainedl Tillman's confidlence<
so that when -there was a vacancy mn
the United States Senate McLaurin
was appointed to fill it and b~ecame a: i
candidate when the election occurred.
Tillman prieferred ,Johin Gary Evans
for his colleague in the Senate, but as
the fight was between two of 'his fol
lowers lhe kept his hands off. The more
respectable element of the State, the
business community, the professional
men and oti'ers who were interested
in the result supplortedi Mchaurin be
cause they conisidlered him the better
man of the two, in character, ability
and in all other respects. McLaurin
- had been on both sid1es, however, more
or less. H~e had failed to sustain Till
man several times, and although no
pledges were exactedl from or offered
him dutring the campulaigln of 1897 lhe
knew, and T'iliman knew, and the anti
Tiliman element in the State kniew,
that lie desired or exp~ected to lead or
at least to become a figurehead for the
latter faction. In other words, he was
taken up by the anti-Tillmani clement
to break Tillman, and Tillmnan's sup-)
porters called im i contecmptuously,
" Curly..Headed Johnny."
.When Mcbauirin got iinto the Seiiate
lie and Tillman had very little to (10
with each other. They were merely
friendly, and each watched the other
with suispicion. McLaurin was in fre
qiuent consul tation with representatives
of the Manufacturers' Association and1(
other organizations that ignored Till
mani, and was looked uipon as their
representative. Whenever legislation
vital to the Republican Intecrests or
strongly desired by the administration
was punidinig McLaurini habitually votedl
with the President's party, which catis
ed some comment. It was understood
by the Republican leaders that his
vote could be deponded upon when
ever it was needed, and as a matter
of reciprocity the President and the
members of the Cabinet accepted his
recommendations in appointments to
oflice and other olicial matters in South
Last spring Mr. McLaurin notified
Senator Jones, of Arkansas, that he
should not attend the Denocratic can
cus any longer, because he was not in
sympathy with his party upon soliC of
the primcipal issues pending, and to
avoid embarrassment to himself as
well as them preferred to remain away.
When the commotion occasioned by
this announcement was at its height he
made a speech at Charlotte, N. C., be
fore the Manufacturers' Association,
in which lie defined his position.
Mr. McLaurin's announcements and
the circumstances attending them cre
ited a great sensation in South Caro
lina, although they were not unex
pected. Taken with the fact that sev
-ral young and active men who had
fornierly been Diemocrats were ap
?ointed to Federal olices upon his re
.omiiendation, it was properly assumi
3d that lie intended to revive or at
east re-establish the Republican party
ii the State. This lie denies, although
nany of his lieutenants have ineau
iously admitted it. It would be in
ossible, h)wevcr, for Mr. McLaurin
ust now to burn his bridges behind
im an(id declare himself a Republican,
>ccause he could not then be a candi
late for re-election to the United States
It is the custom here, where there is
mnly one party, to hold Dcmocratic
oriniaries and vote for all the candi
lates to ollice. This is a sort of pre
iminary election. Any man w%'huo
vants to be Governor or Senator or
,onvressmian or hold any other gift of
lie Democratic party has his name
laced upon the ticket, and in August
It Democrats are allowed to vote f-jr
heir choice. The Diemocratic ticket
t the ensuing election is made up of
lie candidates receiving tihe highest,
umber of votes at the primaries, and
lie State Legislature unaniinously
atifics the choice of the party for a
Jnited States Senator so expressed.
L'herefore, if Mr. McLaurin should
ormnally withdraw from the Demo
ratio party he could, not be a candi
ate for re-election to the United
tates Senate at the primaries, and no
no would vote for him in the Legis
iture. Hence lie will be compelled
L remain nominally a member of that
arty until the election is over.
The Tillmanites or regulars propose
o read him out, of the party andi make
impossible for hini to be a candidate
y adopting a resolution at the State
onventioi providing that every man
rho goes before the people at the pri
aries shall pledge his faith to the
upport of the platform, and then make
platform denouncing expansion aud
dvocating free trade, free coinage at
ixteen to one and other Populistic
rinciples, which it is notorious that
[cLaurn does not believe ini. This
iould be a good thing for several ra
ons, although it imuight be rather pain
ul for McLaurin. It would bring the
3sue squarely before the people and
make a light on the principles and not
ni the main. It is believed, too, that
[cLaurin would be much stronger if
e forces this issue than if lie tries to
eturn to the Senate by the back door.
Ic admits that lie favors p)rotectioni,

ion along the Hie is building l') otlier t

rial revolution that is sweeping over s
Ie South will make these States the C
hree great manufacturing States of t<
lie South. Alabama will iurnish the tl
oal and iroi. I wish to imake this 1H
irediction: that in less thani twenty- n
ve years the bulk of the cotton crop o
:rowl inl the South will be grown west W
if Alabama, aid tihnt the three South
tlantic States caul aiid will become w

Before closing this article, I wish to i
ay a few words about Southern Piies id

Watll Street, last week.
The WVestern Seinator mentioned is
iot, considered a speculator by any
imeanls. IIe is regarded ii the United
States Senate as a "Ilohman"' of that
body. It will be recalled that lRe
plresentative Ilcolmani, of liudiana, wats

Treasury. This Western Senator is a
mnemiber of the approprlutions comi
imittecc of the upper Ilouise. ie never
loses sight of irbc fact that the country
andh the treasury should be prIotected

this Senator, who is so anxious to keep

who, as is well known, onmly draws
$5,000 a year, madhe for him at one
time the most extratvagant, deal ini his

Mr. Curtis, after quoting from the
attack made by Tillman, and McLau

west from ialeighi, on the Seaboard

principally on account of the line 1
Climate and soil, both most favorable A
for experiments. The soil has proved I
to be well adapted to the growth of t
graIpes, peacles and other fruits, and I
within a few years the region around I
Southern Pites has become quite an t
important fruit growing district. The I
land is level and uniform, and tius t
well suited for the cxtensive scheme of (
lield experiments conducted by the I
society. The area of -the farm is sixty- I
live acres, with the addition of the V
vegetable department, consisting of
lifteen acres. All the work from the 1
tlearing of the lantl, down to the pre- t
sent time, has been very exact and
