WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13,1894.
The wheat crop of Dallas county,
Texas, now being harvested, will
foot up 600,000 bushels, or 150,000
more than lasf year.
Dr. Middleton Michel, one of
the oldest physicians of Charles

second year of his age.

We believe the gubernatorial
fight will be between John Gary
Evans and Jas. E. Tindal the
present Secretary of State.
True bills have been fouud in
the Dallington court this week
against McClendon, Cain, and
fourteen other State constables for
the killings during the riot in that
town some time since. The triais
will not be held until the October
terra of court.
The Columbia State has told
Grover Cleveland "good-bye," it
says that his attitude towards the
10 per cent, tax on banks was the
' last feather. We congratulate our
contemporary on the destruction of
one of its idols. There are some
others, however, yet to be broken.
Smash 'em a'l, and come over to
the side of Gideon.
Secretary of State Tindal will
positively be a candidate for gov
ernor. He will be at the pre
liminary meeting at Rock Hill
on the 18th and at Yorkville on
the 19th and will go through the
campaign. This is from undoubted
uithority. Mr. Tindal will in a
few days make an official an
nouncement of his candidacy.

per cent, tax on State banks, Rep
resentatives Strait, Latimer, Mc
Laurin, Shell, and Talbert alli
voted for the repeal, thus taking
all taint or stain of populism from
their garments, for this was not
one of the demands of the Ocala
platform. Talbert expressed the
sentiment, worthy of all commen
dation, that the demands for the
repeal of the 10 per cent, tax was
one of the planks in the Chicago
Democratic platform, and if that
platform was good enough for him
to get in on it was good enough to
vote on and to fight on.
The Columbia State speaking of
the senatorial fight, says :
"The Sanatoria] fight is going to
be the feature of the campaign.
Both Butler and Tillman are going
to take the stump. They will start
the ball rolling at Rock Hill and
at every meeting thereafter they
both will appear. Their joint de
bates promise to be intensely in
teresting in every sense of the
word, and from all that can be
heard there will be some lively
passages at arms. What shape the
fight is going to take no one
knows. The Rock Hill meeting '
will probably tell the story. It
might be said here, too, that if
there is any hot blood stirred up
in the campaign it is going to be
from these joint debates and not
from anything that may be said
in the State campaign deb ites.
Never before on the eve of a bier
political battle have things been
so quiet as they are now."
Last year the General Assembly
of Massachusetts appointed a com
mission of three members, one a
learned professor of Cambridge,
the other two of equal eminence
and without political bias to in
vestigate the system of controllirg
the sale of liquors in Norway and
Sweden. This commission after
making a patient and thorough ex
amination of the law and its opei
ation in these countries made a
favorable report on the system,
and last week a bill passed the
House of Represi ntatives of that
State by a large majority. This
bill is about the same as our South
Carolina dispensary law, and South
Carolinians will watch its fate
with deep interest. There is one
thing the discussion of South Caro
lina's dispensary law has done
which will certainly ultimate in
good and that is the stimulation of
nquiry as to the best methods of
closing saloons and destroying the
power of liquor in these United
It appears now that thc As
sociated Press account of Gov
ernor Tillman's speech and re
ception at the Staten island pro
hibiton meeting was biased and
unfair ;and that the governor in
reality captured the audience and
had most of them with him at the
conclusion. So say the reports of
the occasion in the New York Re
corder. The Recorder, which had
no interest in misrepresenting the
affair, puts the headlines over its

We must conclude then that Irby
is a tadpole in the opinion of our
contemporary. Well, he may be a
tadpole, bi2t we have always main
tained that Irby was no bugeater,
and not to be a bugeater is pretty
high up in ramracker phrase
GOOD-BYE VAIN WORLD.
The Columbia State takes a final
adieu of the Democratic party in
this State in the following words :
"The State cannot recognize the
primaries to be held in August, or
the committee which invites Popu
lists and Republicans to them, as
Democratic. We abjure all alle
giance to either. Whether there
will be a Democratic party organ
ized in South Carolina this year
depends upon the temper of the
real Democrats. They may prefer
todo nothing, convinced that the
majority is against Democracy
But if there should be one organ
ized, The State will support it."
For Mr. Cleveland's efforts in
defeating the repeal of the 10 per
cent State bank tax it also bids
him farewell :
"We have no reason to doubt the
statement in the Washington Star
-an independent paper-that
President Cleveland used his in
fluence against the repeal of the
Oi.~L. 1-1, fnv \VD Imnw fW Kilt
for his attitude of hostility or in
difference the. vote would have
been very different. We have been
hoping against hope that Mr,
Cleveland would at leest rise to a
broad and national view of the
currency question, but we now
realize that he is obstinate in his
purpose to force upon the country
a narrow and sectional policy,
hostile to Southern interests. It
is hardly necessary to say that if
we could have anticipated this
three years ago, The State would
never have supported him for the
Democratic nomination. His first
term gave no indication of a course
so radical. Weean excuse minor
policies which are the product of
his Eastern environments, but we
cannot forgive his desertion of the
platform upon which he gained
the Presidency. At this spot we
take our leave of President Cleve^

Anotlier Version of the Interview
-Or, Perhaps, It's Another
WASHINGTON, June 7.-The
Evening News says; "Represen
tative Oates, who will soon be
Governor of Alabama, lately had
a notable interview with the pr?
sidant. A short time after the rep
r?sentative had reached the presi
dent's office and had engaged in
conversation with him, Mr. Cleve
land asked Oates what he thought
of the best way to bring the coun
try out of its financial difficulties.
They had been speaking of silver
and of the ideas of the ''plenty-of
Colonel Oates replied that the
subject was a most intricate one,
and while in a general way out
lining his views, he confessed to
the president that he did not know
what should be done. Mr. Cleve
land watched him closely as he
talked, and when this confessson
came out, the president brought I
his fist down on the table with a |
bang that shook it from one end
to the other and said :
"Well, I'll be d-d if I know
what to do!"
The Somersault of the Demo
Reviews of Reviews.
When one considers the loss to
every business interest that results
from the suspense and disturbance
of new tariff legislation, it is
evident to any - unprejudiced
mind that the retention for some
years to come of the McKinley
acts precisely as it stands would
be greatly preferable to the adop
tion of a measure like the one
now pending in the Senate,'which
Bettles nothing either as to princi
ple or as to practice. The Demo
cratic party has shamelessly and
scandalously ignored the promise
upon which it came into power to
give the country a tariff on revenue
lines. The Wilson bi 1 as originally
drafted by the Ways and Means
Committee of the House was a
faltering and lame attempt to take
one infinitesimal step in the direc
tion of a revenue tariff. But the
amended and revised bill now un
der consideration in the Senate
has retraced that little step, and
the Chicago platform is without a
defender in the halls of Congress.
Even Mr. Mills, of Texas, while
opposing the compromise, announ- j
any tariff bill which make a re
duction of duties by the very
smallest degree. His position ?6
an absurd one, for it meaus in
plain English that Mr. Mills
would justify a disturbance of)
business interests that costs the
country hundreds of million of |
dollars for the sake of a slight
nominal reduction of tariff rates,
when the altered rates would be
just as effectively protective as
they were before. So long as the
principle remains unaltered,
nothing whatever is accomplished
by a casual reduction, here and
there, of tariff rates ; and such
work would be the most trifling I
child's play but for the mischief it |
accomplishes. Curiously enough,
the income tax holds its pla/ie
practically unaltered in the Demo
cratic scheme. The one great
plank of the Democratic platform
pronounced protection unconsti
tutional and demanded a revenue
tariff. This has been repudiated
without cause and without apology.
But the Domocratic platform did
not mention in any way the laying j
of a tax upon incomes, while this |
was one of the principal features
of the Populist programe. The
Democrats in Congress have now
made the income tax their one dis
tinctive tenet. The country will
hardly again in twenty years ac
cept any pretense from the Demo
cratic party that it is opposed to
protection, and that party will ap
parently be compelled to stand or
fall upon a totally new doctrine
which has never had a place in
its platform except by way of j
cocnemnation of the Republican
income tax of the war period. The
situation is a highly absurd one,
and the Democratic party will have
no light task in adjusting itself to
its novel position.
A New Railroad.
A new railroad between Augusta
and Charleston will be a thing of
the near future. Surveys have
already begun. The Louisville
aud Nashville system is behind
this project. That corporation has
some large interests in Charleston
property, and failing to get control
of the South Carolina and Georgia
road, they are going to build their
own outlet to the sea. This new
road will pass through Aiksn
county nearly parallel to the
South Carolina and Georgia road.
It is announced that MrR.
Mary Lease will be nominated by
Lhe "Prohibitionists for congress
man at largo from Kansas. It is
ilso reported that the nomination j
prill be endorsed by the Populists.
IN A LION S JAWS.
Mlle. Beatrice Mangled By Her
CoRxVEY Island, N. Y.. June 10.
Mlle. Beatrice, the lion tamer at
the London Zoo, who is giving
a wild animal show on the old
pier at West Brighton had a nar
row escape from being mangled to
death to-night by lion. It was just
about 10 o'clock and the enclosure
on the pier where the animals are
on exhibition was crowded with
people. The last performance of
the day was being given and
Beatrice appeared in the hall,
climbed up the ladder leading to
the wild lions' cage and entered.
There are two big Asiatic lions in
the cage, a male and a female. The
male is a great pet of the tamer
and she plays with him for fifteen
minutes at every performance: Her
act with the wild beast is closed
by opening his mouth and kissing
him. She always succeeded in
kissing the brute until tongiht.
While she was making her bold
attempt to smack the lips of
Brutus tonight, the man who feeds
the lions made his appearance
near the cage with a box of raw
beef. Brutus caught sight of the
beef and in a moment he unfasten
ed Beatrice's hold upon him and
sprang upon her. Both had a lively
tussle which finally resulted in the
lion tamer falling to the floor and
the lion grabbing the left side of
her face in his mouth. The wo
men and children in the audience
screamed and looking for clubs
and 6ticks with which to beat the
lion away from the woman. In a
few moments Manager Farrare
and Trainers Bronce and Ordawy
rushed with pitchforks. After
pinnging the forks several times
in the head and body of the lion
they managed to make him lessen
his hold and got the girl out of
the cage. She was unconscious
and blood was pouring from her
face as she was carried into the
office. Dr. Hill was summoned
and the woman was put to bed.
When the doctor arrived the wo
mau; was delirious aud opiates
had to be given to quiet her. Upon
examination, Dr, Hill found that
the lion had succeeded in sticking
three of his big teeth through the
woman's left jaw. Other parts of
her face were also chewed. It took
some time for the Burgeon to stop
the flow of blood. Dr. Hill said
tonight that it was the worst -case
of animal bite that he ever saw.

A Pretty Tough Snake Story.
Here is a pretty tough snake
story. It comes to us second
handed. Our informant vouches
for the truth of it; understood
that we are not responsible. One
day last week Mr. Sara Lauth
ridge. who lives near Philadelphia
church, sent a little negro under
his house to get the eggs from a
hen's nest. Shortly after his dis
appearance under the house the
little negro gave a yell, and with
all possible speed crawled back
ward. Hanging to his head was a
writhing and twisting snake about
two and a half feet in length. Just
as he got from under the house,
the boy seized the snake with a
frantic snatch and threw it vio
lently to the ground, where it was
quickly dispatched by Mr.
Lauthridge. A careful examination
showed that the boy had not been
bitten at all ; but entangled in the
thick wool, was one of the fangs of
the snake which had evidently
been pulled out as the boy snatched
the reptile from his head. The
snake is said to have been a
