TWO RBPUB.ICAN LEADE1RS.
It is interesting at this time to com pare the recent utterances of President Roosevelt and Senator Iloar on the negro question as it affects the South. Both are of the North and the Republi can party. one the President of the United States and the other represent ing Massachussetts in the UInited States Senate, and one of the recognized lead ers of that. body. President Roosevelt, in a letter to llon. (lark Howell, editor of the At lanta Constitution. discussing the mat ter of his appointment of negroes to otlice in the South says: In making appointments 1 have sought to con ider the feelinjr of the peonle of each locality so 1ar as 1 conud consistently do so' without sacri ticing princitmle. 'T'he nrime tests I have applied have been t ,Ise of char :l;ter, titness. ;andt ability. 1 certaily e:ma not t reat 'mere color a pet manent bar to holding oflice :ny more than 1 could so treat creed or birthplace - always pros idted that in other respects the applicant or incumb ent is a wt ihv and well behavel Al,ler ican citi..en. .1 t : little will I treat it as conferring a right to hoki othe'e. Senator olar in the coul:se of a spee:h recently delivered Lefore the U'nion I agze Club of ('1icago. said I kne' how senlsiti 'e t ir Soulthter'n friends arte o!1 hi-.s ', . thlik i 'd syfa.i and Ipel :m had t hp \1 no to, levSe- -0 from followt. afte - thou gote'st I wi] g, pIe shall be myi leople, aind th Go.

Senator liIoar reco'4gniizes theit fact, long since recog nized'( by those who have a fair' knowl tedge andi an adequate unde'rst anding of ctnidit ion.. pretvailing ini the Sou thi, that in this stetion a r'ae prejutdice does ex. ist and that this pre'judlice is too strong li e lightly regarded. IPre'sidecnt lioose velIt sh.ouldl hav.e ltearnedl by t his t ime, anti we bielieve he' has learned1. Senator lloart is a statetsmani. If it bad not al.. reatdy beenm saidi so many timies, we would 'ay that lloosevelt is simply a politician, andl a very poor politician. TILLMAN'S BAIL,. It is saidl Ihaii' the'~ refusal of bail to TIilnian will create sympal)thy for him. lie is, we believe, th1e onily nman who hats been r'eftusetd hail, antd t'he jurors andl t'e.puhhe may take the vijew that the tdemal w.~as ju<tlic'ial per'secution. It is said that noi fur'ther elfort will lit miatde for bail. Nt) man1 hats tvter bteen boundedt tdown as James' 11.

It seems that whlen a man is b'hintd prison lbars that honorable jouirnalism should let him alone. rt seems, too, t hat the JudI(ge outghit s'o treat him as they treat oither' prison ers. - A bhieville P'ress and Banner. Cob. Tfillmnan has bteen refused bail, we believe right and justly. Ibis attor.. nieys have stated to the plublic that no~ further att'mpt to secure bail will be made. Th'le ease will n'ow go betore a jury, who will investigate the facts antI rentder a detcisioni. Why rot let the mat t.er dIrop)? With all the talk going the rounds to the effect that Tfillman should not be shown more cons5idlerationi than any other man, there is danllger of carrying the matteir too far. TPrue, he should not be shown more consitder ation; nor shotld he be given less. D)eath of an Iufant. Little Ida, infant tdaughter of 11ev. andl Mrs. ,J. HI.

"Suffer the little children to come unto me." P. BACHMAN CHAPEL. T. J. W. Writes Interestingly on Union Academy Subjects. Last Sunday was a tine chureh day, and a good congregation turned out at.

Long, from Daniel 5:27. lie gave sin an overhand ed lick with a sledge, putting it right where it belongs. 'There's are many call ed but few chosen.' sayet.h the word of God. We believe that RIev. Mr. LAng Is one among the few whom God has 1:alled to spread his gospel, and we are proud to say that he has commenced a good work among us. We hope and t rust that Color.; congregation will have a little more than Sunday preach ing only twice a month at least this year. if you think that we are as good as we ought to be, dear brother, just let us alone. If not, stir us about. Rev. ir. 1.ong was with us a night at our home not long since, and we were glad to have him with us. lie is a goc I pas torlai worker, and no doubt will accom plish much goodk in this respect.

My thoughts turn back to days that are no more and voices call to me that I knew of old. "0, sad No Morel 0, sweet No More! 0, strange No More!" I hunger for Newberry and long for the sound of her vanished voices, for I have a mellow feeling for the land and the people. At midnight I heard a loud voice calling for Pierce Lake. I took no no tice. Next morning I found it wag .lack l-nlow, who had fallen into a cat. tie guard, near my house. Jack was a kindly. good natured fellow. 'Tis said that "Auld Nick enters into a fellow when he opens his soul with whiskey"; but Jack was not of that sort. But, ''le was lively, he was" mellow, And a bibulous old fellow.' He was an ardent admirer of his neighbor, that excellent citizen, Col. .lno. P. Neel, and when in his cups, after many laudatoiy speeches, would wind up with (speaking of Governor's review of :3th Reg nent) the remark, ''The governor reined his beost around and said ('ol. Neel was the finest officer on the field." According to Jack's idea, to attempt a higher compliment, would be like trying to add a new color to the rainbow. In the days of ' No More" the young sters crowded around the brick hotel to see the stage coach arrive. The Co luilbia coach is due; one Jones, a stout, red compl'cted man, is driver: as he reac hes the hill at E. Y. McMorr;s' he :Io: rishes his whip, gives a blast on his :gie. in grand style dashes down the stree:. wi,h a rattle and roar of wheels ani c ht e ks .p at the hotel. The boya think him a grand man, and each one .i:xios to be a stage driver. Ask -.ce the if he :s going to be a law :"tr or do::or like his fat her.

II. Pope, each possessed of high intellectual gifts, returning from church, Mm's. Pope commended Grimes' sermon. Mr. Pope said lie wvould readl it to her when they reached home. It was one of Blurder's village see'mons. Granville was wise, andl many others would do well by follow ing his examp)le. Diagonally across the street was the residence of that pure man, Chancellor Caidwell, and his excellent wife and family. I lovingly remember their talented son, H1. H1. Caldwell, who was making a fie reputation as a poe. Amiable, intellectual, refined, he has crossed to the other shore, and with his warm friend and comianion, Col. Geo. S. Jameg, is enjoying the bright niess of the Redeemer. )own the red hill we go, passing by a beautiful grove oi the left where Mrs. Vashti McCracken and her sons, Tom and Jaek, lived. At the edge of town (a virg'n forest, as I first remember) was a dwelling built and occupied by John Hlolman. lie was a useful and energetic man. Here also lived Maj. J. B. F. McMor ris and his lovely wife, Amelia (Pratt). A fterwards that adl-round, good and righteous man, )r. W. W. McMorris and his excellent family, lived there. Mrs. MeMorris was a remarkably in telligent. lady, and was the sister of those energetic and progressive men, Jim P. Joseph and Wilson Caldwell and the mothcr of my good friend, J. C. S. Brown. I never knew a man of more intelligence, sound judgment, and real worth, than Jos. Caldwell. Crossing the creek and ascending the hill we see on the left liolman's overshot mill. The water at. first unkindly refused to run up hill, but, liolman afterwards controlled it. Once. -1 little chap. I was going up that hill. At the top on the left, was a stump. I imagined it was a lion or a bear. I could see its head wagging and its tail lashing. Like Pat. I thought it "better to be a coward five minutes than dead all the time. " I didn't "whis tle to keep my courage up." but like the little darkey, "1)en I pick up my foot and nebber stop run 'till I be at the creek." On the hit her side of the Black Jack was a beautiful grove, and here I)aniel Blaker, in 1S:1, held a protracted meet ing. lie was the grandest of all Evan gelists. "le stood the messenger of truth.' "Hlis theme divine salvation alone through the Son of God." What a beautiful thing is this religion. With burning love, tiaming zeal, tender con pa'sionl and a ut"elting heat t, he urged all to accept Christ as their personal friend and Sauiour, and many accepted. On Sanaav. full of ire and pathos, he preached in the Baptist church and hed the vast congregation in silent awe ami prayerful attention. S+nce writing the foregoin. I have obtaii ed a copy of his '.:e and labirs. He visited New be.r.te sec : i :me in 1S54. In a .ater te his wife ho says. passing ::.: Newberry he preached two em .a n leavg he received a \ .t:e". ,:. ::cnrom fort, threeyoung .....: : er..:ir..:e. He preached a week. He as -i a. :'. voung converts and "-,1,.:a-: s t eree: him in the lecture rcom, and fifty or more went in. As Chancelor Jonnson wi an elder, he wa= vireid in. When he beheld the seerhs heat t melted; he attempted cr.cte to) speak. and did say someC touch ing things. but his feelings overcame him and he wept aloud. One of his sous Silasm was present. The Chancellor are him one hundred dollars for Aus in College, (Tcxas). An incident: While with eloquence and zeal he was ~xhorting, the pe'nt up em-otions of the iudience burst forth audibly. lie raised iis hand and said: '"The Lord is in his loly Temple: Let all the earth keep silence before him." 'Tis naid 20,000 .vere converted under his preaching. [n Brownwood, Texas, there is a Pres >yterian college named Daniel Baker n two blocks of my youngest daught 3r (Mrs. Carrie McCartney's) home. This time i'll pass the Black Jack and on to the gum spring wvher'e Win. Welch built, an(d which was afterwards occtpied by his brother Williams. They were from North Carolina, and full of energy, pluck andl excellent judlgment. William was a restless, good man, whose memory is dear to me, for he was wondirously kind to me. Williams was a kindly, manly man, of a gene rotus, imp)ulsive nature, They must have Lakent for their gulide the motto Phil Schopert hadl over his carpenter's sho0p, "'By indulstry we thrive."' I dlon't know that Phil followed it closely, for there wvas a golden thread of great fun andl practical joking running through him. The appleartance of Williams is dlistinctly phot.ogral.1 t' on my mindl; he always appIroachedl me with his head a little awry, and( a1 kindly smile on his face. Ilis wvife was a Glaisgowv, t.he sister of ,Irs. Isaac Kellar', and was a lovely ladly. The Glasgows were a large, intelligent, influential, religious family. They were Scotch Irish.
