Gambling is becoming an uncoinfort
able habit in the town in which The
Columbia State is published. The re

that is not timorous.

A Matter of Record.
Considerable adverse criticism has
been caused by a let;er of Senator Till
man on the negro question and, yet
strange to remark, the expressions of
tbo senator arc rather more temperate
than those in which ho usually in-1
Uulges The Sonator appears to have
been unfortunate in hie text, the
Statesboro horror, and if Iiis letfer had
been bottomed upon a less brutal
lynching affair it is likely that it would
have occasioned little sharp comment,
however untenable may be some of his
Meanwhile the question of the sena
tor's reputation for personal courage
has been discussed, introduced by the
Richmond Nows-Leader and ventilated
by tho News and Courier, the latter
paper holding that he is undoubtedly a
man of brabory. Tho Advertiser sug
gests thad a referonce to a published
correspondence which took place be
tweon Tillman and a now deceased
gentleman and Kx-Confederate soldier,
? f Union, printed in the nowspapera
in about 1800, possib'y 1892, settled this
question once for all. A man's courage,
like a woman's honor is not permitted
to lapso. Between tho gentleman re
ferred to snd Tillman an issuo was clean

The Station Ranger.
If the union station at Columbia
wore so placed that passengers would
ho oompolled to leave trains on the
n juth side, off from the city proper,
we think a howl would go up.
If in Greenville all carriages and
h?cks wero compelled to cross the
. .o.i'horn's tracks at the Washington
street station and then cross back,
wouldn't Chore be a howl?
If In Spartanburg passengers left
the trains on the side of the tracks
next to the Spartan mills instead of on
tho city sldo, how mighty would the
howl be?
So far as wo know, Laurens is the
one town in South Carolina where all
vehicles meeting trains must twice
n" SB a net-work of tracks, to the im
minent p.'rllof the public. Moreover at
ibis Laurens station, they must ap
proach this not-work of tracks from a
hillside. Tho space in which the vehi
cles must wait is such, that every day it
is crowded. There is scarcely room
enough for comfortable turning. We
ropoat that not in South Carolina is
thoro another town in which such a
disgraceful and dangerous condition is
allowed to exist. 'Ihero is nothing
similar to it In South Carolina. If the
railway commission has no power to
r bate a flagrant, self-evident and ever
present nuisance and source of peril to
' ?/o, limb and property, then the rail
wi.y commission is a ridiculous piece of
expenslvo dead wood itself. We can
see how the commission may have dif ?
limit;' in adjusting rates to suit the
public. We cannot soe how It oan fail
to protoct the people against actual
and certain danger to life.
The railway officials and the commis
sion are to meet the people here on the
?Wh. ot October. The p sltlon of the
people 1? (hit the nnDance and the
danger most be removed, regardless of
cost. It w re bot*er to insist that the
p<8?enger station be located at sc me
point half a mile from Its present bas?,
that it be re- orated, than that the ox
*i1 ting danger remain.
The argument that certain citizens,
whoso identity by the way Is soarce'y
established, consented to the present
location is no arg ment. Tho fact is
tlat if Ho town had in the most
mm miii wii seieo'ed this location, it
would none tho loss be ? public duty in
the f-eo of a grave danger to correct
Let it be understood that the people
of Laurens will ne\ er give up this fight,
no matter what action or non-act on

a s'ation at which they may leave the

Hark . jin the polls a doleful sound,

We've been defeated at the poll",
We do not know the reason why.

Our good friend John H. Copeland,
Ran all alone for county treasurer;
Ran into ofilce slick as soap and?
Still stands six feet eight, in measure.
\od in the second battle of ballots,
Brave men fell thick and fast;
We stood to ours while the battle raged,
We fell at the last bugle blast.
Tho political ship went out to sea,
Manned by a gallant crow;
Balled through the land of the bravo

The band playing Dixie and Yankee

The race run between Meesrs Nash

Was run- with many hooks and crooks;

Or shake at our defeat?

Why should we start and fear to die?
Only defeated candidates we are,
Victory was the gate of endless joy,
At.d yet we failed to enter there.
Then, weep not defeated ones,
Do not 6hed a single tear;
Return to your loved ones at home;

While you're sitting by the fire side,
Tears may spring up in your eye;
Take it easy my dear comrades,
You'll feel better bye and bye.
