Senator is Blamed With the Insti?
tution's Troubles. ,
The correspondent of the Charlotte
V Observer at Ycrkviile gives the follow?
ing interview with a prominent South
Carolinian :
: "There are some good men on the
Clemson board of trustees, and they
have been able to do a little some
ithihg, but nothing like what they
fought to have done, considering the
'?- fact that they have behind .them all
the wealth and power there is in the
- . State of South Carolina. The main
X. trouble, however, has been due to
r Senator Tillman. While he has allow
t^ed his colleagues on the board to elect
jfv certain members of the faculty, he has
. ; xeserved to himself the right to name
-;" and control the executive power. The
r trustees in|making their selection had
; an eye single- to competency and efli- j
|?:Jc??ncy, but Tillman, as in all things
else, was looking to what he conceiv
?&e?- tb be the' best interests of Tillman;
He has chosen presidents not because
- he thought them the best fitted men :
. for the place, but because he knew
. that he could rely upon them to serve
?Mm faithfully as suppliant tools. This
was why praighead^got the job and it
^?-i?ccounts for the selection of Hartzog.
"Know Hartzog? Why certainly^
know all about him, not as a . l?atter
of hearsay, but from actual JzuSserva
tion and experience. He is.-'u bright
; '. young man, you knowp-2ot more than
35. He is a graduate of the South:
Sr C?aro??na Military Academy,, but got
through that institution at the foot of
-, his cilass and only by the skin of his
i||eeth. -The question of withholding
-p::Ms diploma for deficiency^ of mathe?
matics was 'seriously considered, but
. : - finally he was allowed to pass. At the
^^?^e* &e "was an energetic sort of a
fi .fellow. For one thing he imagined he
^^a?going to be a great lawyer,' and
. go into his room at almost anytime
. you would find the . table and floor cov?
ered with detached sheets of a treatise
sp&j?la^ intended to Improve on Black
p^stbne. After he left the Citadel, he
felt called upon to preach, but failing
^t&gpt a charge he. gave this up and
took charge of a private school in
$Eogefieid county. He could not have
K gotten a place in the average South
Carolina graded school because he
:^ would have been unable to pass the
^necessary examination. It was while
^ he? was teaching at this private school
v. that Tillman discovered him and made
%?m president of Clemson.
V*lOf course, if Hartzog has been
? found incompetent, it is not fair, to
^r iiim. He had absolutely nothing to do
^.w?th his own elevation-and tho high
Cf position he holds. Senator Tillman is
^entirely responsible. And how many
{ young men are there who would not
V ?eel ompetent to hold down such a job
, at sneh.a, salary when assured of their
; . iditness by such a great man as Sena?
tor. Ben Kilman?
c.-' ''Maybe the trustees will turn
Saxfczog down. If they do not, then
it will be a bad day for Clemson,
t?3?t still, there is no use in turning
. Hartzog down unless they turn Till
: >man down also. If they allow Till
l^nan to select another president
l^through the same motives as influ
-eneedr his selection of Craighead and'
t'\-'T[art!zog9'there ^"mJ?l^ no reform in the
:aiamedmte future. However, the peo
S "pie of South Carolina have already
learned that it takes something else
- ? besides unlimited money to make a
successful high grade college. ' '

The Truth of History.
The truth of history seems, at times,
very hard to determine. Recently,
Senator Ullman asserted, in the Sen?
ate, that Mr. Lincoln, at the Fortress
Monroe conference, offered any terms
the Confederates might, through their
authorities ask, if the Union were
restored and hostilities cease. Sena?
tor Vest denied this, on information,
as he recollected from the commission?
ers, Messrs., Stephens and Hunter,
themselves. This would appear to be
conclusive? but Henry Watterson, who
thinks he has the truth of history on
his side, says:
"Mr. Vest chatters like a very old
man. Mr. Stepehns told a dozen
living witnesses that Mr. Lincoln did j
say 'Let me write Union at the top
of this page, and you may write
beneath it whatever you please.' Mr.
Lincoln did intimate that payment
for the slaves was possible toan agree?
ment of peace and reunion, afterward
committing himself to this by the
i preparation of two documents which
stand in his own handwriting, which
may be seen by anybody who cares to
them. The Confederate Commis?
sioners were limited to treating only
on the basis of the recognition of the
independence of the Confederacy,
?and the conference came to an end
without accomplishing anything at
And there you are. As the Com?
missioners could only treat on the
basis of Confederate independence,
any offer of Mr. Lincoln's, if he made
any, as Mr. Watterson suggests,
must have been purely sentimental.
At the time of the conference, the
Confederacy was near to physical col
apse, and the Federal authorities
new it So under those circum?
stances, any offer from them short of
unconditional surrender, must have
n mere vaporing. Still, Mr. Vest
and Mr. Watterson will probably go to
their graves each insisting on his view
of the truth of history.-Augusta

Senator Tillman Expresses

Washington, May 15.-In The

he knew any accusations would
made, and I do not hesitate to s
now, that there never would have be?
any charges made against him, at ti
late meeting of the board, but for tl
encouragement and advice of some
those connected with the college. Tl
attempt to make a scape-goat of D
Hartzog, and hold him solely respo:
sable for the recent outbreak does th;
gentleman great injustice. The ev
dence before the board showed, that
was an afterthought on the part of tl
students, and. they weakened the
case'very much by listening to bi
advice. I believe the board of truste?
are as blameworthy as Dr. Hartzo?
for any lack of discipline that hs
existed since Capt. Fuller left tl
college. Dr.. Hartzog's unpopularil
with the student body is in my jud?
ment, attributable to some unfortui
ate Mannerisms, and to a pre jud i(
which\arose against him shortly aft?
he went to the collgee. He had ha
no experience in college work, an
made some blunders as might ha\
been expected, and the discontent the
produced has been fomented and kei
alive. -
"The State, with its usual malevc
lenee and unfairness has dragged Di
McBryde into the Clemson discussior
for the purpose of criticizing an
abusing me. As to the relative 'sue
cess'of the two men,-I will remar
that Clemson under Dr. Hartzog's ad
ministration bas shown a greater ad
vance in five years, than has Blacks
burg under Dr. McBryde in ten. Th
number of our students has doubled
and the high quality of the work don
is known of all men of intelligence,
have no criticism to make of Di
McBryde, but I denounce as a false
hood the gratuitous statement of Th
State "that Senator Tillman was no
large minded enongh to consent to.th
choice of a man he had wronged in th
'80s. ' I opposed his election as presi
dent of Clemson, but I never ' wrong
ed' him at any rime or in any way
If there is any wrong between Dr
McBryde and myself, I am the om
who was * wronged' and not he.
When asked as to what trouble h<
was referring, Senator Tillman said
"I do not care to go into particular*
in regard to that matter but there an
many people in South Carolina, whe
are familiar with all the facts, anc
the particular incident to which 1
allude. Perhaps the editor of Th?
State considers the establishment ol
Clemson a * wrong' to Dr. McBryde.
It is well known that they were both
bitterly opposed to it, and if Mr. Gon?
zales is now the friend of Celmson col?
lege, it is because he dare not longei
oppose either it or Winthrop. We
built the college and have run it suc?
cessfully in spite of bis opposition,
and without his advice or help, and
his attempt, to dictate in its affairs
now will not be permitted to succeed
if I can help it. His editorial of Tues?
day can only mislead the people and
incite the boys to continued efforts to
run off Dr. Hartzog, and every other
.man they do not like. No real friends
of the college will want the trustees
to yield to such clamor unless there
is a good and sufficient reason, and no
such reason has yet been shown. We
may arrive at the conclusion that Dr.
Hartzog's usefulness is destroyed,
but it is indecent to prejudge the case
and condemn him without a trial.
I will say further that the idea
which is soughtyto be given currency
that the board ofVrustees of Clemson
are puppets who op "Tillman's will'
can only excite a smile of pity, in any
one who really knows the members of
the board and are familiar with the
facts connected with the board's work.
My advice and wishes in regard to
college matters have been overridden
time and again. Dr. Hartzog was
selected by a committee of which I j
was not a member, and at the time of
his election was not a friend or even
a political supporter of mine. I urged
him for the presidency because I be
.lieved him the best man who was
As to whether the trustees intend
to accept President Hartzog's resigna?
tion, the senator said: "That I do not
know. The board will very carefully
sift the whole matt er to the bottom
at the June meeting and act for the
best interest of the college, I am sure.
There will probably be some changes
made in the faculty, but we will not
consent to dictation from any source.
Stonewall Jackson was a most unpopu?
lar professor at the V. M. L, and per?
sonal popularity is not the only criter?
ion by which to judge a man's fitness.
When those who have axes to grind or
other candidates to press rush to the
conclusion that Dr. Hartzog must go
because they want to put somebody
else in his place, I think fair minded
men everywhere will expect the board
to do what I am sure it intends to do,
exercise its own best judgment and
make ali busy-bodies understand that
we will punish those over whom we
have control, and pay no heed to oth?
Although the Southern Conference
for Education, recently held at
Athens, Ga., was largely attended,
and although the Northern men who
are engaged in this movement were
met most cordially by the Southern
people in attendance, and although
mainly Southern men are working
harmoniously with Mr. Ogden and his
associates, it is needless to deny that
this movement is hot as yet * popular
and is watched with more or less sus?
picion, not to say apprehension, ;by
tnhe Southen people at large.
In one sense it seems strange that
men of large means and of great gener?
osity who are honestly endeavoring to
confer a benefit upon the Southern
people, who are willing to give millions
pf dollars in aid of the public-school
system of the South, should not be
received with open arms, so to speak,
by the South at large.
But those who understand the South?
erner thoroughly there is no mystery.
We have a peculiar condition in the
South. We have the negro as a race I
to deal with and we know that our
views and the views of some of the
Northern people on this question are
utterly and irreconcilably at variance.
When the Northern man speaks to
the Southern man about negro equal?
ity and mixed schools there can be no
possible agreement, there can be no
discussion between these two on that
subject, for, as Hoke Smith, of Geor-'
gia, said in his speceh before the con?
ference, there are some questions
which we of the South will not even
discuss with our Northern brethren,
however sincere and honest they may
be. There is a suspicion among some
of the Southern people that these
Northern philanthropists are endeav?
oring to. elevate the negro and so bring
him into a closer social realtionship
with the Southern people. For our
part, we are convinced from our
knowledge of the movement that such
a thought is utterly foreign tor Mr.
Ogden and his friends, although there
may be some few fanatics indirectly
associated who entertain that view.
But we say that it is not surprising
that Southern men who have seen so
much of Northern fanaticism should
wish to be convinced on this point,
as The Times is convinced, before
they give the movement their hearty
approval and support.
Another thing: The Southern peo?
ple are very jealous of their tradi?
tions, of their manners and cutsoms
and morals. They like their own ways
and they do not like all the ways of
the folks at the north.
We want our boys and girls to be
educated by Southern teachers ac?
cording to Southern usages, accord?
ing to the Southern code of morals
and chivalry and politeness, and
when there is any talk of importing
teachers from the North to train our
children we are all up in arms. We
make no apologies for this.
But The Times is convinced that the
? Southern Education Board has no such
idea as this in mind. We do not be?
lieve that these men are thinking of
working a revolution in the South.
We do not believe that they have any j
intention or desire to give the children
of the South a different sort of train?
ing. If so, they have kept their secret I
well guarded. We believe that they
are desirous simply and solely of help?
ing the Southern people to educate
their children in their own way and
that the money which they propose to
give will be simply and solely a sup?
plemental fund.
We are not authorized to speak for
the Southern Education Board. We
have no sort of connection or indirect
association with it. What we say is
purely the view of an outsider and. is
said in the interest of truth.-Rich?

The Charleston Management Ex?
plains Why it is Called Off.
The firemen's tournament which was
to have been held at the exposition
on May 27 and 28 has been called off
by the exposition directors, as it was
found impossible to bring a sufficient
number of. teams to Charleston to make
the event a success. When the tourna?
ment was first spoken of, May 14 and
15 was fixed as the days for the cele?
bration, but it was found that the
time would be too short to work up in?
terest in the event, and the date was
postponed until later in the month,
? Chief Marjenhoff went to work and
sent out letters to fire teams in 600
cities, inviting the teams to visit the
exposition and take part in the tourna?
ment, but no reply was received. He
followed up the invitations with postal
cards, asking for, an early reply to the
invitations, so that the local commit?
tee colud make preparations for the
teams that expected to take part in the
contests. Letters were received from
seven teams, and this was not consid?
ered a sufficient number to make the
occasion a success, and the tourna?
ment was called off.
Steps Taken Against The Beef
3 Indianapolis, Ind., May 14.-A fed?

begins tomorrow, and he has arranged
that the delegates shall not be impeded
in reaching the rendezvous. Conse?
quently the assemblage is expected to

the peace terms will later b? submit?

Baltimore, May 16.-A syndicate of
which Ladenburg, Thalman & Co., of
New York are the managers, hfes
bought".the East and West railroad of
Alabama from the Kelly estate of New
York. The purchase is in the inter?
est of the Seaboard Air Line to take
that system to Birmingham, Ala.
The terminals at Birmingham are to
be secured by purchase of the Bir?
mingham* Belt railroad. H. M. At?
kinson of Atlanta bought the Bett line
last year for the Old Colony Trust
company of Boston, and as a part of
the Seaboard plans. Short connecting
lines to be built to unite the Seaboard
with the East and West railroad with
the reconstruction of the ' latter will
bring the total cost up to $4,000,000.
A peculiarly sad burial took place
on last Thursday in a neighboring
community. Mrs. Steen, widow of
the late Wilson Steen, and who was a
very old lady, fell out of the door last
Wednesday morning at her home near
Union Church, just over the line in
Chesterfield County. Her daughter
Bettie, seeing her mother's accident,
ran out and very excitedly called for
assistance, then fell across her moth?
er's . prostrate form and in a few
moments expired. The mother lived
about three hours, when she too, died.
This was a very extraordinary occur?
rence, and especially since, the young?
er of the two women was said to have
been about fifty years old. Both were
buried on Thursday in the same gave.

The Theological Seminary.
The loud talk of removing the Tneo
Iogical Seminary from Columbia has
been revived. It is said that the
Southwestern University, of Clarks
ville, Tenn., will be united with the
one here and both -will be given to the
town, making the .best offer. The
officers here would say little about the
matter, but it was certainly discussed
at the last meeting and will be laid
before the Synods of South Carolina,
Georgia, Florida and Alabama, who
control the institution. The Atlanta
Constitution says:
"A movement is on foot which may
result in merging the Southwestern
Presbyterian University, of Clarks
ville. Tenn, and Columbia Seminary,
of Columbia, S. C., into a great
Presbyterian university, to be located
in Atlanta.
"The combined endowments of the
Southwesten Presbyterian University
and the Columbia Seminary amount to
something over $600,000. It is thought
that the schools can be induced to com?
bine and come to Atlanta if as much
as $250,000 can be raised with which
to purchase a suitable site and erect
and equip the necessary college build?
**A committee from the Synod of
Georgia, which has the matter in
charge, will immediately take the mat?

I last year, and the British and Foreign
Bible Society 5,000,000. Many other
concerns publish Bibles and sell great
numbers of them. The Philippines
consumed 10,700*of the American Bi?

year there", and 5,000 during the sec?

are now being made into five Filipino
dialects, lt has already been publish?

ish Society, so that it will soon be
out in eight varieties of Fiilpino lan?
guage. Nearly half a million Bibles
went into China last year in spite of
tne effect of the Boxer outbreak,
which, for the time being, cut down
the demand about one-half. It seems
odd that the Mormon Bible is not
oftener met with. Few persons not
Mormons have ever read it and it rarely
is seen in private libraries or book
