^Clevelan^is unalterably^ opposed

in a nut-shell, is that the dem on i

"An industrial crisis appears to be

Your reporter after a most de

arrived safe and dusty in the city
of canal fame, i. e. Columbia.
A short ride on the electric street

Richardson street, near which is
situated the great State Dispen

ular and energetic Governor waB
in his usually vigorous manner,
pushing the repairs to completion,
but took time to race your reporter
over the building at 40 miles per
hour. His Excellency was not
very busy this day. He had only
about twenty-five different things
requiring his immediate personal
attention. Several bills of lading
to examine and check off ; ten or
a dozen men standing about wait
ing to be told something or other ;
two or three festive drummers who,
on account of a change in the rail
road schedule, couldn't be put off
under any 'circumstances. Then
came a woe-begone looking manj

The telephone bell was constant

clinking of stone drillB, the ring
ing of trowels, the rapid stroke of
numerous nail hammers, and the
loudly issued orders of the differ
ent "boshes" made a pandemonium
of- noises that are simply inde
scribable. Still this was a sort of
an off day with the Governor. I
rejoiced exceedingly that I missed
one of his busy daysv
Tired trying to keep pace with
tho omnipresent Governor, your
reporter strolled off to take in the
sights more leasurely. I met a
young smart-looking man who had
a perfectly reckless air about him
as if he knew every bolt screw
and nail in the entire Dispensary,
and could tell their uses. In fact,
he looked as if he was filled full of
Dispensary knowledge, and could
roll it off by the yard if he only
chose to do so. I stood beside him
a moment and saw him successful
ly spear the third fly with the
toothpick of his pocket knife, af
ter which skillful feat he looked
up in answer to my salutation.
Something rural in the style of my
clothes, or the accumulated dust of
Darlington, Florence, Sumter and
Richland counties, which had set
tled ^heavily upon our last years
spring^uit, caused him to suspect
that we were fresh from the rural
districts. However, he willingly
consented to show us around. He
commenced /enlightening us by
saying that this tank was calcula
ted to hold just one million gal
lons of whiskey and that the rea
son why they were lined with met-'
al was to prevent the possibility
of future Governors, employees,
or visitors sucking the whiskey
through straws, thereby reducing
the revenue that would otherwise
accrue to the State. He showed
me a large place in the ceiling that
was, he said, where the great elec
tric light would be placed ; that it
was to be the largest and most
powerful light in the world with a
power of a million or two candles
and would eost, he thought, five
hundred thousand dollars. That
the light was so powerful that a
blind man could see to read the
smallest print on the other side of
the brick partition which was two
feet thick, that all the County
Dispensaries would be supplied ,
kvith light from this source; that
:hey had peculiar bottles made for

my attention was amachine which
looked like a minature trip-ham
mer which was nsed he said for
condensing the whisky into the
bottles, that after a bottle was as
full as it could hold, the machine
forced more into it ; that this pro
cess strengthened the bottles and
also the whiskey; that the ma
chine would also mash the hands
of any one who attempted to
monkey with it. In reply to the
question, how many hands he sup
posed would be required to run
the establishment, he answered in
a confidential whisper, that when
the business was running at its
full capacity, it would take near
four thousand hands, but to not
give that piece of information away
as he had the hiring of all the
bands, and his mail now amount
ed to nearly a carload of letters
every day asking jobs. Women,
he said, would be mostly employed
as label lickers, as they had the
glibbest, quickest, and slickest
tongues ; that he had seen girls in
large pateut medicine houses by
long practice, who could wind
their tpngues clear around a quart
bottle and stick the label on be
fore you could wink, but of course
they were old hands at it. But,
he added, where ono attained that
degree of excellence their were
five others who filled early graves
with what is known as the dry
tongue. They had no moisture
whatever in the mouth, and could
not talk at all and it is needless
for me to add that when women are
so situated that they cannot talk,
then it is that life to them ap
pears dreadful, and uot worth the
living, and they pine away.

ILLINOIS LYNCHING BEE.
Negro Rapist Hung to a Tele
DECATUR, HJ., June 3.--Early
this morning a mob attacked the
county jail and lynched S'imuel J.
Bush, a negro who made a crim
inal assault upon Mrs. William H.
Vest, in Mount Zion township, last
The details of the lynching were
sensational from the start to finish.
Bush was in jail awaiting trial.
A guard of twelve men had been
put in the jail and an extra force
of men were put on duly outside.
About 300 curious people stood
around the jail all night, though
most of them thought no serious
attempt would be made to tak? the
prisoner out. At just 2 o'clock
twenty-five men came on a rush up
Wood street. They were quiet,
without masks and moved in a
solid body. They forced their way
through the crowd and knocked on
the jail door.
Deputy Sheriff Midkiff and
Special Officer Foster sat just in
side and refused them admission.
One blow from the sledge hammer
crashed in the door and the officers
were surrounded by twenty-five
armed men. The keys of the jail
were demanded but both officers
declared they did not have them.
The men then went to work with
sledge hammers and chisels and
worked foi ty minutes at the. two
doors, one of solid iron an inch
thick, and the other of steel bars,
forcing them both.
Meanwhile the crowd of Decatur
people stood quietly outside. No
one seemed to care much.- There
was no talk of resistance and the
officers w1?re not upbraided for
makinguomore objection. Mar
shal Mason forced his way through
the spectators and into the jail
and started to address * the men. at
work. They seized him and crowd
ed him out of the door. There was
only an occisi?n al yell and alto
gether it was a quiet attack on the
A frightened negro inside the
jail pointed out Bush's cell. Three
men rushed in and found it appar
ently empty. They jerked over
the mattress and lifted it up and
out tumbled the negro. He had
crawled inside. He was dragged
into the street, where 1,500 town
people had assembled, and taken
to a telegraph pole, on one of the
most prominent corners in the city
directly in front of the court house.
An arc light made the street in
tersection as light as day., *
A rope made of halter straps had
been put around the negro's n??k.
When the crowd stopped, at the
foot of the pole he asked, for .time
to pray. The men^id^/i??ie
^rraa'SirEEe-time ne want?"~".':jaS
knelt dowp on the/ bricks and be
gan to pray in a sing-son?way. He
would call on Jesus to come and
take his soul and forgive the men
who were murdering him and then
dec1 are that he was innocent. He
prayed disconnectedly fully ten
minutes while thousands of people
crowded around close together as
they could, many jesting, and no
one seeming impressed with the
awfulness of the scene.
Finally the spectators began to
get impatient. A.man had climbed
half way up the pole and stood in
the glare of the light all the time.
"Cut that short," he said. "He
gave those women no time." Others
took up the cry. "Hang him.
He's prayed enough," they yelled.
The rope was handed to the luau
on the pole. He put it over the
wire andthe crowd pulkd.
The negro's body, now naked,
swung up into sight four feet from
the ground and fell back. The
negro uttered no sound. He was
put on top of a cab. The cab was
driven under the pole, the rope
fastened to a cross arm, the cab
driven away and the man was
hanged till dead.
The coroner cut him down.
Among the lynchers was William
Vest, husband of the second woman
outraged, and Rolla Dill, brother
of first woman assaulted. ,
Bush was born at Mason, Miss.,
in 1860. He said his father and
brother 1 ive there. He came North
three or four months ago and has
been doing odd jobs around De
catur about six weeks..
Monday, it is charged, he went
into the house of Mrs. B. Dill and
committed an assault on her.
About ll o'clock Tuesday morning,
Bush, it is alleged, went to the
house of William Vest, eight miles
from Decatur in Mount Zion town
ship, and finding the woman alone
outraged her in the presence of her
small children. She only succeed
ed in escaping further outrage by
promising him money.
The news of the crime spread
over the township and farmers
dropped their work and turned out
to hunt the negro, who, however,
kept in the brush until he got
about twenty-five miles away.
Then he came out and was captur
He admitted being at Vest's and
seizing Mrs. Vest by the arm just
to scare her. He denied outraging
her. A neighbor identified h'm as
naving been near Vest's house. It
was the first lynching that ever oc
curred in this county. Hundreds
of citizens were around the scene,
to-day and took it coolly though
they condemned the dead. It is
thought there will not be any prose

Union Mutual life Insurance Company,
Its Policies are the Most Liberal Now Offered
to the Public.
Is the"only existing Company whose policies are, or can be subject to the
MAINE NON-FORFEITURE LAW.
WHAT IT IS.
The Maine Non-Forfeiture law protects policies from forfeiture
by reason of default of payment of premiums. It provides that, after
three years' premiums have been paid, failure to pay any subsequent
premiums shall not forfeit a policy, but it shall continue in force for
its full amount until the reserve (less a small surrender charge) upon
the policv is exhausted.
The reserve is a sum made up of portions of each and every pre
mium paid upon a policy in anticipation of its maturity. Beginning
with a small portion of the first premium, it is increased each year by
the addition of each subsequent premium, and grows larger year by
year, until, at maturity, it exactly equals the face of the policv. When
a policy is discontinued therefore, there is in the hands of th? Com
pany a reservo, greater or less, according to the character and age of
the policy. Instead of permitting the Company, upon non-payment
of premium, to confiscate this reserve, the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law
requires the Company to continue the policy in force until the policy
holder receives an equivalent for it in extended insurance.
How IT WORKS.
If a person, aged 35, pays three years' premiums upon a twenty
payment Life policy.and then discontinues payment, the policy wil
be continued 4 years and 257 da3'8 longer; if he paya five premiums,
an<^ then discontinues, the insurance will continue 7 years and 357
If'the policy is a twenty year endowment, same age, three years'
payments will give an extension of 8 years and 150days; five years'
payment 13 years, 300 days. If the policy is a 15 Year Endowment,
($1,000) same age, three years' payments will secure insurance to the
end of the endowment period and $13.68 in cash if insured lives till
that time, and in like manner ten years' payments secures insurance
for the full ?5 vears and $592.17 in cash.
These extensions vary with the age of the insured, the class of
policy, and the number of payments made; they are stated in each
ppjicy. in_vears and days, for each number of payments, so that the
?olicy^-?~oiaerT?Tix>W8'?tt?~ glance exactly what ne is entitled tb If'li
discontinues his payments at any time.
What it Has Done.
The Company Has Paid over Two Hundred Death Claims, in con
sequence of this law, aggregating in sums insured more than Four
Hundred Thousand Dollars.
In every case there had been a default in the payment of pre
mium, and, except for this law, the policies would have been of little
or no value. Instead of this, the insurance in each case was extended
to the time of death, and the Company was required to pay to the
beneficiaries under the policies the sum of $418 335.77.
He Vie o? \m Law Extensions as Cowed
WITH ZPATD-TTIP VAiLUES.
It is the custom of many companies to provide in their policies
that, upon discontinuance of payment of Premium, paid-up policies
will be given, without the option of extension. This was the practice
of the Union Mutual before the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law was en
acted, but it now substitutes for paid-up values the more advantage
ous plan of extended insurance. The objection to the paid-up system
is that the amount of paid-up insurance which is given upon the dis
continuance of payments upon a policy, unless it has been in force a
great many years, is insignificant, and of little or no value as protec
tion ; and it leaves the insured who ceases payment without adequate
insurance at the very time he needs it the most.
The great advantage of the extended insurance afforded by the
Maine Law over the most liberal paid-up system is strikingly shown by
the following comparison, and it will be observed that the paid-up
value is insignificant in comparison with the amount actually paid by
the Union Mutual. The result of two hundred and twelve policies
If the insured had received paid-up policies instead of ex
tended insurance, the Company would have had to
pay in settlement of the claims only. $98,197.50
Whereas, in fact, it did pay under the Maine Law, $418,344.77
Making a difference in favor of the beneficiaries under Two
Hundred and Twelve pol iciei of $320,147.28
The policies are free from all restrictions, and incontestible after
A grace of one month is given in the payment of premiums.
