agreed to be present at the pollinc place
at Phoenix for the purpose of witness
ins the affidavits of colored men who
were rejected as voters because of theit
inability to comply witli the require
nieitts of the constitution.
_."My hrothet look no part in the man?
agement or the polling place, which was
in the ban.Is of the Den.rals. He
simply sat on the piazza of Mr. Lake's
house and witnessed the affidavits give,,
him, depositing these affidavits in a box
prepared for the purpose.
HIS VISION OT IT.
"Mr. Etherldge. the white man who
was killed, was an election manager at
a precinct two miles away. He left his
own precinct and with a party of men
went to Phoenix. He walked up with
his party to where my brother was sit?
ting at a table and deliberately kicked
over the table and box in which the eer.
tilicates -were. Then he assaulted my
"In a short while the Democratic vot
ers who were in the same hotrse rushed
out ami commenced shooting into the
croud. The negroes lied. Mj brother
who is probably dead by now told me
that Etherldge was killed by shots from
"My hrothet did not have a weapon
on his person."
Mr. Tolbert said that he was ai Al.

shooting. His father. .1. K. Tolbert, wa?

eider Tolbert learned of the riot he
started for the scene in his buggy, ac?
companied by a ten-year-old nephew
Before he reached the scene he was met
by a mob, which riddled the buggy will
bullets and wounded him and the Iii He
boy a number of times.
It is said that the boy was killed by

panicd by Solicitor General Itiohanls.
the Department of Justice, called at tin
White House and bad an extended in?
terview with President McKinley. He
related to the President the stoi\\ ol hi
experiences in South Carolina substan?
tially as given above, entering into min?
ute details of the troubli.'ection
day. The President listened attentively
to the recital, but gave no Indication of
what a.-lion, if any. might be lakeii
However, he requested Mr. Tolbert t.
see tlie Attorney General and make to
him a full statement of the situation as
he viewed it.
Returning to the Department of -Ins
tice. Mr. Tolbert had an interview with
Attorney Griggs. who had just returned
from New Jersey. Al th. conclusion of
the interview, the Attorney General said
he would have a conference with He
President on the matter as soon as pos?
sible and it would then be determined
what, if anything, would be done.
Attorney General Griggs spent soon
time with the President, bin as far as
could be ascertained no decision uf lie
question presented by -Mr. Tolben was
PROTECTION FOR TOLUEltT.
Tin- Department of Justice ha- taken
steps to obtain information bearing
upon the trouble in South Carolina ami
it is said to be entirely unlikely, in th
absence of such information, the Pies
idem would take any action in the mat?
ter. In addition, however, to the elT.ni
of the department to secure definite and
official information concerning Tues?
day's rioting, steps have been taken to
afford ample protection to the elder Tol
Eert, who is .-..lle.-tor of customs at He
port of Charleston. It is said that, as a
government officer in the exercise of
his individual tights and in the per?
formance uf his otli. ial duties, the fed

.to be interfered with. A prumir.-r.: ..f

HEAVY COAL SHIPMENTS.
The past week lias shown unusually
heavy coal shipments from Newport
N. ws. loaded ami light, has been un
? isually heavy.
i Hi Wednesday perhaps there wore
more vessels anchored in the stream
than in any one day for some time,
iiver twenty coal barges and four
i, l.i.rs were counted from the old
11..minion pier. Yesterday liiere were
seventeen barges and one coal schooner
uiclioi-eil directly off Hie city.
The presence of this unusually large
amount of tonnage is due to the opera?
tions of the Atlantic Transportation
Company. whose movements have
caused such a sensation in the coal
world during the past two months.

ORGANIZATION OF WOMEN.
Successful trade unions of working
women, says the Chicago Record, arc
few. Wage-earning women do not take
to organization along trade lines with
nearly so much readiness as men. For
the ums! pan il appears that the rea?
sons which operate against the growth
of union among- female workers are the
same as those which tend to place wo?
men al a disadvantage with men in the
For one Uiing. very many wage-earn?
ing women do not regard their present
occupations as permanent, hut look for?
ward with more or less hope to the
lime when they shall quit Hie wage
earning fi. ld. Men join unions because
they expect lo follow their callings for
life, and therefore mice a deep interest
in helping to shape conditions, through
organization or otherwise, so that their
occupations shall continue to be attrac?
tive and remunerative. The young wo?
men who intends to abandon her trade
,ir occupation within a few years for
something entirely different does not
take nearly tin- same interest in main?
taining a union.
The needs of the working woman or?
dinarily are not as. great as those of
the working man. Tile latter has. or
expects to have a family to support,
and if unions w ill keep wages from fall?
ing, he Is vitally interested in main?
taining them. In the majority of cases
the working w oman has no one but her?
self to support.

DIRTY CORN SHIPPED To DEN?
In a circular letter Mr. Hoyer. the
Danish inspector. wains American
I shippers and farmer* that cargoes of
??..in from Philadelphia. Baltimore and
I other American ports have contained
broken grains, cob and dirt to a greater
extent than ever before experienced. In
consequence says the Philadelphia In?
quirer, there have been loud complaints
from foreign consumers. and large
quantities of American corn have been
rejected because of Us exceedingly dirty
condition. The importers have produced
the certificates of the American grain
inspectors, hut in the face of the facts
i as hud before the arbitration committee
I of the Copenhagen Hoard of Trade these
cerlilicates have proved to be of no
value, since in every case the decision
has been against the importer and in
I favor of the consumer.
i .Mr. Hoyer warns ihe American public
that similar carelessness caused Den
I mark to abandon the use of Black sea
barley and to substitute American corn.
I Tile shipment of uncleaned and dirty
corn is an evil that ought to be cor?
rected at once. To continue the care?
less practice is to imperil a rapidly-in?
creasing market. Wherever the fault
it should be promptly located, and there
should be a rigid .holding to responsi?
bility. The charges that the certifi?
cates ,,r the American grain inspectors
ai Baltimore. Philadelphia and New
York are absolutely without value and
contrary to the condition of the cargoes
is a most serious matter, calling for an
Immediate Investigation. since Ihese
charges are an attack upon out mer?
