Mr. E. 13. ]look, of the Augusta Chroi
lion of the memorable encounter betwel
which led to their resignations and the r(
:his State. This article is worthy of peI
scrver of the extraordinary sceino in (alf
I had the pleasure of being present .
-it the debate in (affiey, S. C., be-<
- ween United States Senators Tillma'i
And McLaurin of South Carolina, and
..f witnessing the senisationlal episode i
which resulted in their' joint resiglia
.ion. It wias a perforilalice without, aH
'recedent so far as I know, and one I
- hat could hardly liave occurred anay- I
.vhere else but im South Carolina. It, t
nieans the bringing oin of a bitter an ld
- ensational campaign tIhis summer, andr
*ne that will be very t ryinig oi Senator
\IcLaurin's physical ability, if niot (nm
his Bellsibilities. Ie is evi(iently not
a Well man, though he hats ureat i
nierve force. A three-hours' debate A
hat leaves Senator Tillman perspiring, I
jut ruddy andl eager for more, leavex r
.-enator NeLauirin nervous, ulstrung, f
temporarily collapsed. Tilniman ights i
because he loves it, I ie reoices in
lie storm of battle, inl the biu iisl g of 1
his victim. J) ust as a prize lighter likes t
to see the blood spurt from the face of t
his antagonist, so Ben Tillman likes to C
- cc a sensitive opponent, grow pale or e
1ush, and figuratively writhe under v
his bitter iniiuCido and iji almse. Mc- 11
fLaurin is of finci fibre. lie (oes n1ot1 t
,ove to light, buit he does niot shnia ii.. h
1[0 does n1ot fear to strike a stinging in
Ilow, but lie does it of necessity, ral hi- I
-r than because lie takes pleasi e inl it. \
lrought face to face with diuty he h
Would )ack his position witih his life, s
:.nd never quail for an instanat, but lie ti
would do it under tremendous nervons r
lension, aidi when the strife waUs over
lie would suffer temporary coll:apse
iiot actual prostratioi, but lassitude t.
:Ind exhaustion. The eud of a semsa- w
- ional canvass, full of personilities aid n1
-xcitement, would 1imd MC Latrin n
.,reatly exhausted, depleted inl weighi. t<
'nd strength, if not actually sick; while e
Tillman would be strong as atn OX, and
lit for another moith iof the sae soil.. h
Bloth men are absolutely fearless, but. I
hey differ greatly in fibre anl iemperi- tt
menict. 1
McLaurin is a hanidsome lian (If finie 5
stature, and an easy and at times, ef ti
lective speaker. Ile makes no effort it
at flights of cioquence, butl, is eariest ir
tUd occasionally fervid in speech. li
Chere seems to be something lacking iW
ia the strength of his face, and so in
his speaking ie sieems just to fall short
-of the power that moves men, andil h
carries conviction. Ilie talks well, and P
miounts to a certaiin height of vigor and v
earnestness, but lacks that ringing o
, one or personal magnetism that. makes i
the bliood tingle in the veiis and a veeps I
-in au.hence off its feet. lie is more ti
'rnate than Tillmai, but less forceful. 1)
Ile is more gracious, but less winin g.u
Ile is more arguileltative, 1but1 less 11
conviligiV. Ile is more courteous, r
but doies not get as strong hold on e
ensual acquiain tances or partisan f'
friends, ie is manly and~ fearless, but
lacks that, personal quality that, at- h
taches men to his cause, and proclaims v
the leadler.t
There is a stronig belief prievatlenlt,
that the whole thing is bluff and play
for position, and that the resignations
tyll be declined by the Governor, or
through some other means will not b~e
come effective. 1 do0 not. think there e
is any groundi~ for this. Ihowever uni- e
piremeditatedly or flippantly the gamne
may have been entered upon, it, he- I
came serious enough before the~ finish ,
and Senator Tillnan was delterminedl 1
to force Henator McI aurin to resigni or<
to squarely back down after liaving''
agreed to (10 su before the audlienlce. I
In the matter of the resignlation Till-t
muan was the aggressor all the way
through, lHe began by dleclaring that(
''in the game of politics a man coulO I
come mighty near being a rascal ; and:
when a represenitative refused to standit I
b~y the policies of the party that, electedi
him lie might he calledl a traitor.''
Then lie (declared that, the manly course
for McLaurin to pursue woul be to
resignl and go before the plel for re
election, thus giving t hem an oppior
tuniity to end~orse his courise by re
electing himi, or' to repudiatec him if.
they believed hais coIurse was undemio
eratic. Theni tu rlng to the atudienice;
''I will understand that, you don't, wanmt
tme if you re-elect Mel Laurin , for if' he
is a Democrat I animnot."
The purpoh1se of TPill man was cealIy
to draw the slihrpet, possible contrast
between his own position and that oif
McLaurinl-by assertioni, if not by
argument. Confident in his own
piopuilarity and~ strength wi t the peo
1)10, he soughit to throw it in1 the scale
against Mcaumrini. If he had niot,
shown by argument, that, Alc1aurln's
p)osition was undemiocratic, lie wvanited
them to undl~erst1~ an ihat, he so conisider
ed1 it,, andl further that, any . endorse-.
ment, of Mcfautrin would b~e a repuldia-l
tion of Tillman. '' If' CAlciirini is
right, Tillman is wron.'' You must
choose between us. South Carolina
ought to have either two Democr'ats
like Tillma'a, or two Rtepubhacans like
Mchaurin, If you want either oiie of
us you dlon't want the other. Me
Laurin ought to resign, andl give you
