to a Letter from Mr. AlrkIll They
Stand 1by TIteir Actlon.
[Tho State, 21st.]
The State Democratic executive
committee has boon polled on the
matter of the rosolutions adopted re
questing Sonator McLaurin's resig
nation, and it is very clear that none
of the members were "misled' in the
matter or have regrets at the way
they voted. The following circular
just sent out by M r. D. 11. Eagill tells
the story of the poll of the committee.
On the 9th of August 1 issued and
sent to each member of the State
Democratic executive committee, who
voted for the resolution condemning
Senator McLaurin, the following cir
cular letter referring to an interview
with W. ). Mayfield, published in
"It is charged in the public prints
that 12 of the executive committee
who voted for the resolutions con
(oinming Senator McLaurin, 'had
boon heard to express regret for their
part in the performance, the day after
the meeting, and claimed as an ex
cuse for their conduct that they had
"Will you be pleased to inform me,
by return mail, if you have express.
ed any such regret?
"Have you over stated that you
wore misled in the matter?
To this letter I have received the
following answers from the members
of the committee:
JOHN (I. RICIA1I)S OF KJIiSJHAW.
"I have your conmmunication of
August the 9th in which you call my
attention to the charge in the public
prints, that 12 of the StateDamocratic
executive committee, who voted for
the resolution condemning McLaurin,
"had been heard to express regret
for their part in the performance the
(lay after the meeting, and claimed as
an excuse for thoir conduct that they
had boon misled." And in which
you also ask me the questions: 'Will
you be pleased to inform me by re
turn mail if you have expressed any
such regret.' 'have you over stated
that you were misled in the matter?'
In reply I will say that I have
never regretted my 'part in the per
formance, and was not 'misled,' nor
have I over made such a statement
to any one.
I introduced the resolution after
mature deliberation and went to Co
lumbia to attend the meeting of the
cemmittee with the firm determination
to take such action. 'There wvas no at
tempt on the part of any one to mis
lead. 1 submitted the resolution to
several members of the committee
and to ether prominent Democrats
who were not members before the
meeting and it was with the practi
cally unanimous-endorsement of these
South Carolina Demoorats that the
resolution was adopted.
It was not thought for a moment
that Senator McLjaurin would resign
for wve know that the same lack of
of self respect has caused him to re

In reply would say I have never
had nor expressed any regret for tho
way I voted on the "McLaurin reso
lutions" and under the same circum
stances would vote the sante way now.
I have never stated that 1 was mis
ld in the matter because I was not.
Furthermore, 1 was not "coerced or
tricked" in the matter. I voted do
liberatoly and with my eyes opon.
I said then that I did not think it
was the right time to take action in
the matter, hut if brought squarely

Your circular letter of August 9th
From my personal knowledge of
the personnel of the State commit
tee, I am surprised that such reports
should attract attention, neverthe
less, I will answer your inquiries in
inverted order. As I am and have
boon for a long time thoroughly con
vinced of McLaurin's disloyalty to
the democratic party, I simply did
my duty as I saw it; the only regret
I have is that lhe did not see lit to
accept the advice of the committee
Thanking you for your activity in
behalf of the committee.
W. W. Williams.
W. ). EVANS OF MARLBORO.
In replying to your circular letter
of 9th inst., say that I was not mis
led in voting for the resolution of
censure of Senator McLaurin, and
feel and have expressed no regret at
any "part in the performance."
W. D. Evans.
W. 0. TATUI, OF ORANOEIIUURO.
Yours of 9th to hand, in wvhich
you ask If 1 had been heard to ex
press regret at my part of the perfor
mance at the State executive commit
tee meeting on the 25th of July in re
spect to the resolution condemning
Hon. John L. McLaurin. I certain
ly made no such statement, to the
contrary I have always held that we
were simply doing our duty to the
party that had placed us on the
watch tower to look out for dan~ger.
Respectfully, WN. 0. Tatum.

Yours of August 9th, stating it
was charged in the public prints that
12 of the members of the State Dem
ocratic executive committee had ex
pressed regret at casting their vote
on the McLaurin resolution. I will
also state I was not misled and don't
see how any member of the commit
tee could have boon misled, as the
resolution was road twice.

[St. Louis Globe-Democrat.]
Columbus, Mo, August 15.-The
question of tube)rculosis among cat
tle hos dleveloped into a matter of
very lively discussion, judging from
the inquiries received here at tihe
Missouri experiment station. D). F.
Lucky, State veterinarian, gives his
views on tile sub1jelct as follows:
"The examinati on of bre-ed1ing and
dairy herds in difforent parts of this
State during the p)ast year has re
vealed the prosoOnce of t uberculonis
to seome extent. It bas beeon tho
roughly demnonat irted that the is
ease is contagious from one animald
to another, and evid-enco points to
the fact that many cawes of tubieren
losis in the human famnily are due
to the use of tuberculosis milk and
meat. The (hanger of the monetaryI
loss by the infection of valuable
hords of cattle and1 the pr-obability of
the transmission to the human famn
ily makes this disease one of piarai
mount import-anco to tihe peol of
Missouri at the p)r-ernt time. aIn
the sprimg of 11900, v.ith a view to
stopping the further inltroduiction of
tuberculois among our berds, the
Missouri State board of egr-icultureo
adopted certain guaarntine regulat
Lions restricting the shipment. of cat
tie from I ih E1'atern States into
Missouri. More fr-omn the lack of a
proper understanding of the (dreaded
disease than anything 0180, a number 1
