In Columbia, the stronghold of
the "antis" there are said to be
already six candidates for Mayor,

office holding, is not confined to
the "Tillmanite" or'.Reform" party.
Three thousand five hundred
men and one woman witnessed the
Corbett and Mitchell fight. The

She was dressed in male attire,

The Augusta Chronicle states
upon the authority of, the Commis
sioner of Agriculture of Georgia
that hogs raised in that State are

recently bought 6,000 in the south
western part of the State.
Many years ago, when the now
venerable Captain Basse, of the
Senate, was a youth, he was direct
ed to place a snuff-box in each of
the small recesses of the rear wall
of the chamber, to right and left
of the Vice President and to keep
them filled for the Clays, Websters,
and other Senators of the old
school who were habitual snuff
takers. The snuff-boxes remain
as a reminder of the time and
habits of Senators whojmade tos
tory. But they are seldom filled,
as Mr. George, of Mississippi is the
only Senator who uses snuff.
The Prosperity Reporter says:
We are not at liberty just now to
make known his name, but learn
from good authority that a promis
neut Anti has been appointed and
has accepted the position of Chief
Constable for this county. He is
from the county, and has an ele
gant home and many acres of
land. He is a man noted for his
courage, and well equipped for the
position. And yet there are per
sons who say Go7. Tillman will
not appoint an Anti to offics.
Though an Anti, he beiieves in the
Dispensary Law, and will be ener
getic in enforcing it.
Capt. James H. Tillman, of
Clark's Hill, and Col. George W.
Croft, of Aiken, have formed a
co-partnership for the practice of
law at Edgefield Court House.
Col. George W. Croft is one of the
ablest lawyers in the State and has
made a reputation in both civil
and criminal Cases. Capt. Till
man is a bright, intelligent young
man, a son of Hon. George D.
Tillman, and inherits many of the
strong intellectual traits of his
distinguished father. The Hamp
ton friends of both gentlemen feel
satisfied that they will receive a
liberal part of the legal buisness.
The Atlanta Constitution well
says: "There should be no cotton
mills in New England. The fact
that a cotton factory can be ope
rated profitably a thousand miies
away from the fields that produce
the raw material makes the world
wonder what the Southern people
are doing and what they are think
ing abont. We should manufac
ture our cotton here at home and
oui distributing centres, railways
and ports will send it to the rao3t
distant markets. We can manu
facture cotton cheaper here than it
can be done in New England and
save the freight on the raw mate
rial and the manufactured product
that comes back to us. None of the
cotton mills of the future should
be started in the Northeast. The
South is their natural home and
they will pay largen dividends here
than anywhere else."
The Southern Cultivator for
February says : "Where not previ
ously sown, this is the best month
foi sowing oats. Later sowing
is not advisable, except on
bottom or rich land. In the
more northern sections of the
South oats sown in February are
not so liable to disaster from frosts
as January sowings. But the crop
has a shorter time for developing
and maturing, therefore the land
should be thoroughly prepared and
highly fertilized, in order that the
yoong plants may at once being to
take up their food supply.
Ii ARMERS' FIRE IX. ASSO.'X
A meeiii-g of the Farmers' Mu
tual Fire Insurance Association of
Edgefield was held in the court
house on Monday, President Tim
merman in the chair.
Steps were taken to merge the
Association from the Chester char
ter to the charter for Edgefield re
cently granted by the Legislature.
A call for voluntary contributions
was authorized for the benefit of
Messrs. D. P. and J. H. Lagrone
who lost their gin houses by fire
while in operation. They were in
sured in the Farmers' Mutual, the
terns of the contract beiug 6uch
that the insurance was not of force
while steam was applied, hence
the call for contributions is not a
legal assessment, but only volun-;
The following is an abstract, from
the report of the agent, of the busi
ness done the past year :
No. of assessments, 1
Net amount collected, $572.72
No. losses sustained, 13
Average loss, . 56.54
Total losses sustained, $735.00]
Losses paid, $385.00
M reported and unp'd, $340.00
Bal. i J treasury, $187.42
Deficit to be provided for $162.58
Am't In. now in force, $357,095
An assessment of ? of 1 per
cent, was ordered levied, which
will pay up outstanding losses and
provide a surplus for the ensuing
Tariff reform bas triumphed in
the Hou*e of Representatives, and
in a manner so inspiring that the
record made b}- the democratic
party will be -one of the proudest
in its annals.
The tariff bill, with the income
tax appended as an amendment,
after a three weeks1 discussion
passed the lower house of Congress
on Wednesday last by avery hand
some majority. Protection and
protective theories received a very
black eye by the passage of this
'measure, and the shades of Cal
houn may rejoice at the consum
mation, or rather an approxima
tion to a consummation, for which
and worked. This bill, should it
pass the Senate, and of this there
is little doubt though its provi
sions may be slightly modified by
that body, will afford greater relief
to the country, to the toiling, strug
gling masses, and they constitute
nine-tenths of the people, than
any measure passed by Congress
since the war. By it the necessi
ties of life become practically
free; and the markets of the world
will be open to our citizens for
trade, to sell their products as high
as they can and to buy as cheaply.
Democracy may well plume itself
!on the passage of a law so full of
premise not only to the party, but
the whole country; one that was
but an aspiration to democratic
statesmen past and a vision of
bliss merely to many still living.
In this law there is new hope
for the country ; and that demo
crat is captious indeed whe would
think a third party necessary now,
after such a victory.
The scenes enacted on the last
day of the debate, the day upon
which the vote was taken, are said
to have been beyond description.
The House of Representatives, the
galleries and the floor, was a wild
scene of jubilant demonstration
and rejoicing on the part of demo
crats. The last speeches were made
by ex-Speaker Reid against, and
Speaker Crisp and Chairman Wil
son for the bill.
At the conclusion of Mr. Wil
son's speech there was enacted a
scene of wild enthusiasm such as
has never before been witnessed
in the House within the memory
of the oldest member. The ap
plause which broke out at frequent
intervals during the speech over
leaped all bouuds when Mr. Wil
son tried to tak? his seat. Cheer
after cheer rang out again and
again, men threw their hats and
papers in the air, and women their
handkerchiefs. Breckiuridge, o?
Arkansas, embraced the speaker,
and a crowd of demonstrative ad
mirers, headed by Mr. Bryan, o?

ginia, raised Mr. Wilson upon
their shoulders and carried him in

THRILLING STREBT D?fiL!
FIRST BLOOD HERE OVER
THE LIQUOR LAW,
W. H. MEETZE PROBABLY
Fatally Wounded by Davis Miller.
A Perfect Fusilarte ol'
The Columbia State.
For the first time since the dis
pensary law became a law, blood
vvas shed on its account in the cap
ital of the State yesterday after
noon. Mr. W. H. Meet zo, the man
who shot and killed Clark a few
years ago, and the; man who defied
Governor Tillman and his consta
bles at the fair grounds last No
vember, got into a street affray
near Columbia's famous street
fighting ground, the corner of Main
and Washington streets, where
every serious affair of any im
portance thal has happened in re
cent years in Columbia has taken
place, with Davis Miller, a stock
dealer hailing from North Caro
lina, and the former fell with a
a bullet in his side within one
hundred yards from the sp->t where
Clark fell and expired when he
shot him. Tbe extent of his in
juries cannot yet be ascertained.
Never before has a pistol fight
occurred here in which so many
shots were fired without injuring
any one except "tbe participants.
The street was filled with people
at the 'time, and Miller, knowing
he had a cool sure shot to deal
with, emptied two pistols, save one
bullet, in less time than it takes
to tell it. It was a perfect fusilade,
and created the wildest excite
ment, especially when Mr. Meetze
was seen to reel and fall to tbe
ground. All day long serious
trouble of some kind had been an
ticipated, but no one knew from
.what quarter_it wpuld come, or at
Miller had been a witness in the
first bliud tig^r case and his testi
mony goaded some of the liquor
men and their friends to despera
tion. Long before he had con
cluded the giving of his testimony,
it could be seen that he would have
to answer in one way or another to
somebody for some of his state
ments. Some of the men looked
ver}r angry. Miller evidently knew
too that he was to be "talked to,"
for he had come to the courthouse
ARMED WITH TWO PISTOLS,
both self-acting, which he carried
in his outside overcoat pockets.
At any rate, just as the recess was
taken things looked pretty squally.
Miller went back into one of the
jury rooms and serious trouble
came very near resulting in there,
two men tackling him and cursing
him pretty severely. Justice Clark
son went in there, however, and
pulled Miller out, taking him
down stairs. Mr. Meetze and others
who were very much incensed came
on around on Main street, and
they talked very bitterly about
Miller. Several parties urged them
to go on home, Lut somehow they
got around on Law Range again.
They went to a point in front of
McMaster's law office and stood
there talking. Among them were
Messrs, William Sheppard, Meetze,
Fry, and Herriot. Miller was
standing up in front of Shand's
law office at this time talking to
some young men. Fry evidently
wanted to tackle Miller, for some
one heard Mr. Herriolt say to him :
"?No you ought not to do it." Just
about this time Mr. Charles Hen
drix, the defendant in another
case, pulled out a pistol near the
corner and appeared to be very an
gry. Police Sergeant Morehead
and Bell Towcrnian Dunning saw
him, grappled with him and took
the pistol from him. sending him
away to the station house. Just
about this time Mr. Miller came
on down towards Main Street.
EYE WITNESSES ALL AGREE
on th<> rest of the story. They say
Miller Ci me on down the sidewalk,
and tried to pass around the crowd
standing there.'A s he did sn Fryjetep
ped up to him and paid : "Did you
say I swore lo a damned lie today?"
.Miller replied: "Xo. I did no!/'
Fry said: "Well, these fellows tell
me so." Miller said : "Well who-,
ever said so told a G-d d-d lie.''
Mr. Meetze, who was standing be
hind Fry, ran around and come up

said, and hit him once on the i
of the head.

At this time Meetze was si

THE WOUNDED MAN.
As soon as the firing cease
many of the bystanders rushed t
Mr. Meetze's side. When asked :
he was hurt mu }h he said : "I thin
my leg is broke." A hasty exam
Dation revealed a bullet hole i
Mr. Meetze's right side it bein
located just about the center c
his vest pocket. The blood poure
from the wound. Several gentle
men lifted tho wounded man an
dispatched messengers for aphysi
cian. They were about to tak
him into Dr. Ray's office, but h
said: "No, take nie around home.
He was perfect^' cool and collected
but was powerless to move a mus

The people all along Main 'stree
heard the fusilade and came run

In a few moments the
EXCITEMENT WAS INTENSE,
the streets were filled for|two houri
with excited men. Drs. Talley
Folk, and Taylor were soou at Mr
Meetze's side. They examinee
the wound looked for the bullet
but failed to find it. It ranged
backward. Thc physicians say it
may have entered the abdominal
cavity, but they cannot yet tell,
In this case the wound is a very

around towards the buck, and in

Singing Hymns to a Dead Horse.
After encouraging disobedience
to law and resistance to 1'igal au
thority in ?ls every issue, there is
just about as much virtue in the
News and Courier's editorial of
last Friday counselling submission
on the part of the citizens of Char
leston, as there is in singing hymns
over the body of a dead horse.
After encouraging lawlessness on
the part of the whiskey element in
that city, both by captions to all
articles relative to the present
Administration and by subheads
and editorials, the evil results of
its teachings have begun to show
themselves in a manner which
seems alarming to the News and
Courier, and it now sets about try- !
ing to correct or repair the evil
which it has brought about. Last
Friday's issue of that paper con
tained an editorial strong!}' urging
obedience to law. But while the
News and Courier writes a seem
ingly fair editorial for the eye of
the public, it "winks the other eye"
at the mob. It says :
It is all wrong. The spies and
constables have the law behind
them, and law abiding citizens
should regard their conduct ac
cordingly, and treat them accord
ingly when they are engaged in
their business. To "mob" them,
or offer them violence in any way
will only have the effect of making
martys of them, of putting this
whole community in the position
of defying the law, and of making
the situation still worse than it is.
A few man, or many men, in Char
leston cannot undertake by force
to prevent the con forcement of
the law in the city. The experi
ment should not be tried further,
and than those who are disposed
to try it should listen to calmer
counsel and be guided by it.
The has been some loose and
dangerous talk on this subject
within the past two or three days.
It ?should stop-Those who indulg
ed in it to incite unthinking men
to acts of violence are enemies to
the peace and welfare of the cit}'.
There is no estimating the amount
of trouble they would make for
for those who snould be
misled by them. We should have
no display of disorder and lawless
ness in Charleston on any account.
Every one who cares for the good
name and the welfare of the city
will discountenance all such
assemblis in the streets as those
of Wednesday and all such threats
of mob law as were made on that
day and night."

NOTICE TO INVENTORS.
There was never a time in the his
tory of our country when the demand
for inventions and improvements in
the arts and sciences generally was so J
great as now. The conveniences of |
mankind in the factory and work
shop, the household, on the farm, am
in official life, require continual ac
cessions to the appurtenances and
implements of each in order to save
labor, time, and expense. The political
change in the administration of the
government does not affect the progress
of the American inventor, wi o being
on the alert' and ready to perceive the
existing deficiencies, does not permit
the affairs of government to deter him
from quickly conceiving the remedy to
overcome existingdiscrepencies. Too
great care cannot be exercised in choos
nga competent and skillfully attor
ney to prepare and prosecute an ap
plication for patent. Valuable intersts
have been lost and destroyed in in
numerable instances by the employ
ment of incompetent counsel, and
especially is this advice applicable to
those who adopt the "No patent, no
pay" system. Inventors who entrust
their business to this class of attorneys
do so at imminent risk, as the breadth
and strength of the patent is never
I considered in view of a quick endeavor \
to get an allowance and obtain thc
fee then due. THK PKKSS CLAIMS
