From Every Pnlplt—Senator Say*
He Expects to Make Enemies.
Columbia. S. C., Aug. 18 —South Caro
lina has become somewhat noted for the
uniqueness of her political campaigns.
The present one is different from all pre
decessors, and is being fought on new
Senator Tillman is the central figure,
standing, metaphorically speaking, with a
Bible in one hand and a whisky bottle
bearing the coat-of-arms of South Caro
lina and stamped “chemically pure” in
the other, he invites the populace to drink,
and quotes Scripture to prove that to use
liquor is not considered immoral In the
Bible, except in Habakkuk, which he de
< lares to be “obsolete;” around him the
same “wool hat boys” of 1890 and 1892
are applauding his sharp thrusts at the
ministers; others of hla more serious fol
lowers are silent, still others have open
ly turned, and are speaking against him,
while from a hundred pulpits pours a
stream of denunciation.
The gubernatorial contest is the issue,
the question being dispensary or pro
hibition. Tillman Is fighting for the for
mer as more moral than prohibition.
Among other things Senator Tillman
has declared in hi speeches, that “of all
things I hate is the hypocrite, and I would
not swap places to-day with any of the
preachers for my ovfn chances in the
He has done more, he declares, for the
morals of the people of South Carolina
than all the preachers put together.
“The preachers and the old barkeep
ers have formed 1 an imholy alliance to
break down the dispensary. The preach
ers may be honest, but they are weak In
the upper story, (topping hte head). They
<k> not know.”
He accused some preachers of distort
ing their texts in order to show that
liquor wns condemned by the Bible; he
then quotes Paul’s advice to Timothy to
take wine; Solomon, he declared, had
given the same advice.
People had threatened to scratch his
name from the ticket, he said, and he
invited them to do sj. declaring that al
though he laid no appeal ion for re-elec
tion to the SL-nate, he would not accept
the office if he did not receive a ma
jority of the vo’os cast. He expected, he
sad. to make 29.UUQ new enemies by h!s
But Senator Tillman has not held the
monopoly of the talking A hundred ser

might be quot'd from, but here are a few
Rev. G. W. Gardner, D. D., editor of
the St nth Carolina Rapt Is >, has been a
supporter and admirer of Senator Till
man. and has kept out of the fight until
this week, whm he attended n nvettng
and heard the Senator apeak.
He says: ‘‘lt was an outrage and we
areashanvd that South Carolina, has such
♦i man to represent her so destitute of
reverence; so blasphemous. He is a far
worse man than his most ardent enemies
have ever branded him.”
Dr. C. S. Gardner of Greenville, refer
ring to Tillman’s statement that Hahak
kuk is obsolete, eay#: “Habakkuk did not
live to see the time when a United States
Senator would go about the country
preaching that the liquor traffic is a be
nevo'.ent ami moral institution.
“He is either a religious ignoramus or
a religious imposter, who tries to bolster
up liquor traffic with the Bible.”
Rev. F. C. Hickson of Cherokee coun
ty, who attempted to interrogate Tillman
on the stand and was snubbed and “sawed
“Will the people follow Mr. Tillman or
the. preachers and the Bible? There was
a time when they would follow Tillman;
has that time passed? The Lord grant
that it has. But I want to say to my
IH-ople in Cherokee, if you think Mr. Till
man knows more of the Bible and of right,
of how to live and how to die, than I do,
let him be your pator; let him come to
pray for you when you come to die; let
him preach your funerals when you are

plying armor plate to the government will
be opened by the secretary of the navy
the first week of October. There will be
three bidders, as before, and it is almost
certain that the MHvaie Steel Company
will receive a portion of the work in cate
the secretary de ides to let the contract.
This will be due to an agreement with
the two other companies in order ihit the
Midvale concern may not again enter ihe
race as a formidable competitor of the
Carnegie and Bethlehem companies for the
heavy or Krupp armor plate. Tne Mid
vale Company is, in other words, to be
permitted to secure without opposition the
(ontract for making the lighter plates
known as class C- and a portion of class
B. This suggestion has teen informally
made by the other companies to their
competitor, and it Is likely the Midvale
( ompany may accept. ®
MILLS SHUT DOWN.
Their Operation* Will Be Resinned
on Sept. 4.
Riddeford. Me., Aug. 18.—All departments
of the Pepperill Manufacturing Company’s
cotton mill* in this city and the York
Cotton Mills in Saco shut down to-day
until Sept. 4. Five thousand operatives
are employed in these mills. The cause
of the shut-down is unde*r-consumption of
the product, due in part to the curtail
ment of the export trade on account of
the Chinese troubles.
