from Harry Stillwell Edwards, of
Macon, with reference to Feo loral ap

Senato. Tillnan Gives Out a Statement
Severely Criticizing i':esident
Roesevelt's Southern Policy.
Taking exception to President
Roosevelt's letter to Clark Howell,
editor of The Constitution, Senator
'Tillman gave out a statement severely
criticizing the president's southern
policy and contrasting it with that of
President McKinley.
In this statement he says: "There
are some facts concerning the atti
tudo of the present administration in
this matter of southern appointments
as compared with the McKinley ad
ministration which are not brought
out by that letter. Mr. Hoosovolt
has departed absolutely and entirely
from the lato policy of the martyred
McKinley. President McKinley at
the beginning of his first term fol
lowed the customary rule of his lHe
publioan predecessors in regard to
southern patronage. This was large
ly controlled by the chairman of the
national comilltten and the party
workers who had rounded u) the
clolOgat,ions in the iational conven
tion were given the customary nut
her of pllces. 'ThesO places woro
often given to colored men. lut
after the Spanish war had demonstrat
ed that the southern people wore as
loyal and patriotic aH any other citi
zona of the repbllic, and after Presi
dont McKinley had visited the south
atli captured the hearts of our po
pie by his broad, liberal, generous
uttoratnces, tlhero was a change in his
policy. I think that an examina
tion will show that during the bal.
anioc of his term few if any colored
tunm were appointed to ollico in the
south. As I recall it, l'resident Mc
Kinley went, to Tuskegee and in his
speech there at Booker Washington's
school he advised the negroes to leave
politics alone, to cultivate friendly
relations between theinselve and the
white peole and to look after their
material interests as the only road to
worthy citizenship. All the good
work which had boon don by Mc.
Kinley toward the cultivation of a
mutual friendly sent-iment and to
wards the elinminatlon1 of the pestifor
ons negro politician as a factor has
booni undone by the present execu
tive. Itco feoling is today, there
fore, running higher than at any
time ini the past 10 years. 'iThe re
stilt 01an only3 be intjurious to both
races, hut the negrooa will inovita
hi3' suffer most.''

The Sotth Carolina Senator Numbers
Among Former Relatives D1i-'
tinguished Men.
The News and Courier prints the
following from Edgefleld:
Some time ago the papers of the
country published a telegram from
St. Paul, Minnesota, announcing the
death of a grand uncle of Senator
Tillman, an aged miser of that place.
A few days ago your correspondent
chanced to meet Mrs. Anna Swear
ingen, the widowed and accomplish
ed sister of Senator Tillman, and in.
quired if the Mr. Tillman in question
was a relative.
She replied, "No;" expressing her.
self as being glad of an opportunity
to correct the error, and then she
gave the following short, but inter
eating and comprehensive history of
the family: "My father, B. It.
Tillman, had only three uncles; their
names were littleberry, Steven and
"L,ittleberry moved to Alabama,
where his great grandson, Senator
Pugh, and other descendants now
"Steven lived and died in Edge
field. The lHughes, Clisby and other
families kindred to them, descended
from him.
"Lewis moved to Tennessee, where
he lived and died in Edgefield, a
town ho nund in honor of his native
county in South Carolina. His
grandson, Lewis, represented that
Statn in the Federal Congress for
several years. This Congressman
left sotis, six in number. Some of
them are prominent lawyers. living
in Nashville andl Knoxvillo, Tenn.
One, J. Fonut Tilhman, was rogister
of the United States treasury ano
his nanio is oftei seen c,n paper
"Another of his sons, Col. Samuel
Tillman, is professor of chemistry in
West Point Military Academy, where
he has labored for many years. His
works on chemistry are used as text
books in the leading universities of
the world.
"My father if living, would be 100
years old on the 5th March coming,
as he was born in 1803
"His twin brother, John lM. Till
man, died of yellow fever in Ponsa
cola, Fla., when quite a young man,
eighty odd years ago.
"You will pardon the infliction of
these genealogical facts, which are
called forth by the seemingly tin
scrupulous efforts of some to bos.
mnirch our name. A history of the

written by a member of the North
Carolina branch of the name-and I
am sure its pages will niot or.roll the
name of the miser."
A Progressive Famer Eixpresses 111mself'
on the Road Question.
{Union Progress.]
MIr. Ashmuore Vtanderford, a wvell
known farmor lhving near Mt. Tabor,
was in. thle city Friday, and in con.
versation with the edlitor of Progress
"'I notico in your paper that you
are advocating goodl roadls. I for
one am in favor of them, and if we
could have them in the next ',ear,
though I work but a three borse
farm, would he willing to pay $30.
You haivo no idea how bad roads are
ont in the counitry.''
"Howv much do you think bad
roads cost the farmers?" was asked.
"1 think it takes off at least one or
two years from the life of a horse or
mnle," said said Mr. Vandrford,
"and besides it is brutal and sinful
to attempt to carry a loadl to or from
town in the condition the roads are
nowv and I bielieve if people wvould
do it they' would have to buy newv
stock to work their crops with.
"I1 was reading in a paper from
Texas the other (liy how they have
bad roads out there too, and one of
the farmers opened up and built a
good road through his place, charg
otg soll to persons who passed over
it. It was not only appreciated by
the pecople, but made a great deal of
money for thle mn. Why I would
have gladly have paid $ I to have a
good road today fromu he re to - my
home, about nine miles, for thbough I

''As I camue along, I not iced a
farmer wvho lives about three miles
from here, coming to towni with a
dollar load of wood. IHI had four
horses hitchedl to his wagon, and at
the rate be was coming, could not
make but one trip a day. When the
roads are goon, lihal haaul., th
same amount of wood with two horses

shows you what a benefit good roads
would be and how they would more
than pay for themselves in a very
short while.
"Am I in favor of good roads?
Why, certainly, and I hope that we
will have better ones very soon."
Deplorable Tragedy at Branchville Tues
day-A Clear Case of Self Defense.
(The State.)
Branohville. March 8.--Mr. N. G.
Heape was shot and instantly killed
here this morning by his step Son,
F. W. Fairey. It seems that Mr.
Heape has been on a spree for seve
oral days and had become delirious;
he had threatened several times to
shoot his wife, Young Fairey's moth
er, and had run the whole family off
the place. Mr. Hoape and young
Fairey had always been specially
good friends and he started to go
and try to quiet Mr. Heape, who had
already been shooting at Mrs. Heapo
and at any one that passed the place.
As soon as Mr. Fairey entered the
yard, Mr. Hleape drew his gun, and
Fairey had to shoot to save his own
life. The verdiet of the coroner's
jury was that "I-loupe came to his
death by gun shot wounds in the
hands of F. W. Fairey, J r., and we
believe the same to be justifiable

affairs that hts ever occurred in this

with snother yawn. His head nod

An irreproachable clerk seemed to
enter the room.
"Mr. Mortimler," he said, "I have
just made out the year's balance
sheet. It showed a little over $800,
000 profit, last year."
A real estate agent was ushered in.
"I've just completed arrangements
for buying that Fifth avenue house,"
he announced. "The papers will be
ready tomorrow. Will you please
have a certitied check for $200,000
And he silently withdrew.
A horsey-looking miian rapped at
the door and entered.
"Your horse, Jig Steps, won the
New Year Handicap," he said to Mor

$100,000 on the race."
Mortimer nodded carelessly.

A Word to
It is a well known clinical fact
tha babies wvho depend wholly on
mother's milk never have cholera,
and are exempt from two-thirds
the ailments wvhich afflict infants.
Some inkling to this has checked
the resort to artificial foods and
begun to make it " good form " for
every mother to nurse her own
baby - when she can.
Some try it, and grow weak and
sick under the strain. With
others the milk flow is insufficient,
and the poor baby is at last given
over to the tender mercies of the
milkman with his corn fodder, and
stale slops, and wvo:se.
If any mother within ter, miles
of our store reads this, we want to
give them a hint. Try Vinol.
There are many mothers who have
found that it enabled them to take
more nourishment, restored their
strength, and made baby healthy,
hearty, and happy.
Vinol not only supports the
mother's strength but transmits
to the babe the foundation for a
healthy childhood.
Vinol contains no dangerous
drugs. We are willing to tell you
just what is in it and give you the
money back if it don't help you.
Don't doubt, try it.
