A frank interviow with a Now York ro -
porLter-Tho causes of his failuro--A
tributo to the S'ato of Soith Carolina.
Ex-Governor Chamberlain having
beeni sworn in as a memlber of the
Ncw York blar, and having opened a
lat oflice ini that city, h~as beenl in
ter\ iewed by a r(.ior(teI of tlhe New
York iv.raidd. ''he reporter draws
the iollowing pen-picture of i he ex
"Given a small but compactly
built figure, say five feot nine inches
in height, wiy, elastic 'a al well
po'ised ; a face full of (Juik' intelli
gence: a pair of blue eyes that never
speak so elojguently as when they
111ae the telltales c'f some intellectual
thought; a heal prematuirely bahl.
but with all of its phrenlojogical
knolls symnathetically developed ; a
method 'of speech at. onco clean cut..
corree 1a11(1 pronouncd, as if every
word was m1ahLsureI in it scale. and
the reader has a skeleton pen picture
of ex-Governor Chamberlain, of
South Carolina, who has recently
occupied sulch1 it conSpicuous place
n the political gallery of the nation,
Ind who now proposes to settle in
Ne v Tork for the practice of law."
Plmi ging at once i n inl((dvi'a res
the reporter asked Mr. Chamberlain
his views upon the present coidition
of South Carolina. The' reply was
that the Democrats are practically in
full control, 11o ei'eetive opposition
in any way being made by the Re
i)mlhicans. Mr. Chamberlain added :
ihe contest for the control of the
State was bitter and violeni. I
have heretofore publicly stated my
views of the methods employed by
the Democratic party and sullicient
ly emphasized my condemnation of
many of them. It is afact, however,
that now there is peace and good
order throughout l1: State,
altho h 1 I do not think that this
shioubd h to any (xtent re' arded as
t just.itieation of the illeg''"I or
vnoCIt mneasures that were resorted
to for the purpose of obtaining con
trol. Still, it may be recognized as
t fact that so far in the Stato at
large there have been no outrages of
power or abuse of the colored p~eo
ple or Repnblicans generally."
In answer to the question what in
his opinion would have been the
result if he had been sustained by
Iis own party at home and by the
Fedieral administration, he said
"The) contest is now over and I (1o
not care to parcel out the blame for
present results or to appear to
reflect upon particular individuals
:)r dlepaIrtmen'ts of governmient.
Tihis, however, I can say with coni
lidence, that if I had been enabled
to carriy out f-lhe plans11 and purp~losos
I. N exrcssed inl miy inaugural imos
mnge of Decemlfber 1, 1874, I should
have achieved all that Genoral
EIamp~ton has dlone. Pr'obably his~
full term of oflie~ Will be required to]
develop his p)lan.s. Had I had thei
samne time I should have offectod1
the samo11 results. My plrimoe object
was Ithe restoraLtion of government]
umd an honest administration, and I
think it is generally admiutted thati
what I proposed to this end was
sylmpathectic with the wishes of the
intellig'ent commun 1li ty. I bedlievo
th'mt I p~ursue1d those plans consist
ontly and with some degree of Arm-.
laess and courage. It is trute that I]
w;as not suWccssful, but those who1
have \vateced tihe courso of events
in fh'o State are ~1perhafps better
rinalified than I am to see wvho is ro
sponsible for the failure ; I certainly
do not feel that I atm. I am still of
the opinion that a better Condition
of affairs wvould havo boon reachedl
under-my adminitration than under1
that of General Hampton, becanso
no man's civil or p)olitical rights1
wvould have boon abridged or denied.I
As I have already intimated, I regard
the present supremacy of the D)emo
cratic party as due to methods:
which disregarded the political
i'ights of aL groat numnber of the citi
zons of a State. There was a large
majority of the peCoplO of South
Carolina entitled to vote who desired
ai continuance of the Republican ad
ministration, and( I (10 not think that
General Hampton represents this
element. Still I believe ho Will
endeavor to make a good and horsest
goveornmonlt so far as' its financial
and practical (departnents are on
lie continued, "I regardel the
ignoranco and inoxperienee of~ the
masses of the Republican party in
South Carolina as one of the in
hereIt and. great difficulties in the
political problom. I wais inder the
poltical necessity of making politi
Call applointmenlts to ofiees from at
party which, as t rule, was not able
to furnish competent oflic'ors to rep
resent tle government.
"1 re was tho greatest of my
difliculties. T[hie majority of the
1Republicalns iii the Legislature woro
never heartily in synpa thy with me
during any portion of my ilrst term
of olico. Nearly all the public
mieasurer in which I took a de1)
imterest were passed by minorities
of Republicans and Doinocrats.
The reduntion of taxes and a more
econo)mhical eignditure of publioc
funds wcro 'n iturally tho leading
objects which Ih11ad in view; and hero
it is but justice to say that I met with
abrost entire opposition within the
ranks of the Republican pal'ty. ' Of
course my idea of the way in which
ia refor'nation must bo brought
about was through the lRepublican
parl y, heimise I knew that a miajori.
tv of the peoiple of the State were
attached to that party, and that
I here wis no hopo h: inducing them
to join any other organization, oven
for local State purposes. But th6
habits of legilsation which had
grown up11 betw e i 18.8 'and 1874
were too strong for me, and the re
sult was that I Was overeeno and ily
policy only partiailly carriCl out. A
great dea1l of evil wias prevented and
some positive good Was done, but
only a small fraction of the results
which were within the power of tho'
liepub iclan party, had it co-operat
ed with me, was made evident. I
feel bound to say that if I had beon
heartily supported from 1874 td
18;,' the state of feelhig' which pro.'
ceded the nomination- ('f Geniral'
ILtupton would not have existed.
In brief, if my administiation had
beer. supported by the -whole Re
publican party. it would have de
prived the )onocrats of their griev
anco's and made thom ac'quiesco in
the supremacy of the 'Ropublican
party for a long series of years."
In reply to the question whether
he received symnpathy or support
from his former political - opponents
in the State, Mr. Chamberlain
said: "I am glad you have asked the
question. I answer, mnOst assured
ly I did, and no change of circun
stances in political fortunes will
over lead me to deny or depreciate
the generous and hearty support
which the best men of South Caro
lina and cf the 1)oniocratic party
pledged me from 1874 down to the
Lime of tiao nominfttion o( Hampton
in the fall of 1876 It was generous
becaase they recognized 'that my
policy meant the wolfaro of the
Stato, and that so far as this was
eoncerne(d mere political considora,
tions had no weight. I'd ubtif any
public man was ever moi-o heartily
inr unselfishly supported by p)olitiCal
opploneiuts thtan I was by the DomoM
arats of South Carolina during the
period hd which I refoe-. Our sub-.
iCequent1 d iffrences occurrod from
>thor causes than thme want of symna
p)athy between their viowvs and mine
ipon gne'stions of practical adminis
iration within the State0."
The reporter thon requested to
muow the ex -governor's opimion as
o "the ability of the colored pooplo
~o take possession ol; a government
md logislate in their own wvay." The
mnswer was as follows:
"I think the colathed peoplo are
rust as competent to legislat6 and
.nuta government as ady other
p~eoplb who hamve had' as little educa4
bion andl exp~eriene'o. They odily
want brains. It is idle to expect
Linder. any circumstances a good
govo'nmont Iwithout a large pro
pondleranco of intelligence. Thie
strength of every community in the
Union is mean'sred by this fact.
WVhile, therefore, I do not reflect on
Lhe colored race'in saying thatt they
were badly prepared for the task
Ihey assumned, I htill contodd that
meccessful self-government, under
the law of universal suffrage, re
cluires education, intellectual train,
ing and a large amount of' accumu
ited political experiel-in short,
ur understanding of the' duties of
oitizonship. Concerning the inten.
Lions of the masses of the colored
people of South Carolina, I think
they are honest. 'Their mnisfortune
has been that they were not able'td
anticipate or follow the effeeta'b
measu'es that were enacted by th'eh' .
repro'sentativos intil these measugef'
had taken root and wrought thehK V
evil results. And' then 'they were
