The Campaign Closed.
It hos boon polities o vor and nu on for
tho last nix months. It has boon talkod,
discussed and written until o >rybody
has bocomo tired. Tho contest is hap
pily onded nt last, and tho election on
Tuesday determined our rulers for tho
next two years.
Tho pooplo of South Carolina havo boon
as true to the Domooraey as tho noodle to
tho pole, and consequently Benjamin
Ryan Tillman was oleotod Govornor by
tho handsomo majority of botweon 40,
OOO and 60,000.
This is just what was oxpocted, and
proves that tho people of this proud old
Stato still havo their fi.vOs sot like steol
against Radicalism or Indopondontism,
in whatovor guiso or shapo it may array
.Itsol! 1er tho ovorthrow of tho Demo
cracy .md good government,
Tho Domooraey being thus at tho holm
ami guiding safely tho ship of State, tho
pooplo can now glvo themselves wholly
up to the pursuits of poaoo, with a fool
ing of security and cortainty as to our
political statue.
Tho Legislativo Loaves'and Fishes.
A prominent politicien and a prospec
tivo mombor of tho Genoral Assembly of
1800, was in Charloston last week, rtnd
while there was intorviowed by a repre
sentativo of tho Ncwa and Courier as to
tho probable elections at tho noxt ses
sion. Tho biggest light, ho thought,
would bo had ovor tho ofllco of Superin
tendent of tho Stato Penitentiary. Ho
said that at present tho following mon
woro considered candidates for this posi
tion:
J, R. Karlo, of Oconeo; W. Jasper Tal
hort, of Edgolleld; G. Gaston, Probato
Judge of Aiken; IL R. Thomas, of Sum
ter; P. Brooker, of Ridgo Springs.
Tho mombor said that at this timo W.
J. Talbert, chairman of tho March Con
vention, lends in tho race, but what de
velopments would happon in tho political
world in the noxt month it would be im
possible to foretell. Tho success of tho
Thomas . factio:> in Sumter might, ho
thought, help his (Thomas's) candidacy.
Ho thought that tho probablo succes
sors of Railroad Commissioners Jervoy
and Duncan would bo T. W. Stanland, of
Berkeley, and the Rev. J. A. Sligh, of
Nowborry.
There is some talk, tho gentleman said,
about changea in tho JudgOB of tho Su
premo Court, but. nothing seems to have
yet dovojnpod. No changes aro, how
ever, contemplated by tho leaders of tho
faction which expects to control tho dis
tribution of tho oflleoB. Judge Norton
will bo ro-olectod without opposition, ho
thought.
Among tho candidates for clerkships
in tho Legislature, Dr. Sampson Popo, of
Newberry, was mentioned as a candidato
for tho Clerk of tho Sonnte, and ox-Re
presentative I). B. Purlfoy, of Kdgoflold,
as a candidate for tho position of Head
ing Clerk of tho House. Col. Sloan, tho
votoran Clerk of tho Houso, and Sor
goant-nt-Arms Brown, ho thought would
bo retained.
It was generally conceded, ho remarked,
that as a roward for his activo work,
Col. J. L. M. Irby was to bo awarded tho
Speakership of tho Houso if his faction
gained control.
There have not been any candi.hites an
nounced for tho position of '.'resident
pro tem of tho Senate.

Du A lt Cou Ul Kit : This is election
day and we expect to swallow Till
man this time for the sake of the
party, but two years from now if
tho so-called Democracy expects oui
support of the State tickot they

Tillman at the head of such a party

IN this a White State!
WASHINGTON, D. C., October 29.
In 1880, according to tho United
States census, tho population of
South Carolina was 995,077, of which
391,105 wore whites, and 004,472,
including Indians, Chineso and
negroes, were colored. The popula
tion of South Carolina to-day is
1,047,101, consisting of 512,309 white
and 034,788 colored, including Indi
ans, Chinese and negroes. In the
last ten years, on account of the
continuous movement of colored
colonists to Mississippi and Arkansas,
the increase of tho colored popula
tion has only boon 30,310, while tho
white population bas in the same
time, been increased by an addition
of 121,264. For every 20,000 of
increase in white population there,
has been but 5,000 increase in black
population.- Charleston World.
Railroad Wreck.
A terrible wreck occurred about
noon, Wednesday October 29, on tho
Richmond & Danville Railroad, four
miles Fast of Seneca. It was the
North bound passenger train. A
largo piece of one of the wheels of

the baggage and express cars and
two Pullman cars to jump the track.
Fight persona wore injured, two be
ing badly burt, but nono fatally,
Tile porter of ono of the cars was
seriously hurt, but hejexhibited com
mendable courage and succeeded in
putting out the lires in the cars and
assisted in rescuing those who re
mained inside. Ko continued his
work until ho fell exhausted. Phy
sicians from Central and Seneca
were immediately summoned and
the injured were given all the atten
tion possible.
(Joei? ?or Democrats.
WASHINGTON, D. C., November 1.
-Thc Republican managers here
practically concede, tho election of a
Democratic Douse next Tuesday and
are paving tho way to an easy down
fall by throwing tho responsibility of
defeat on tho Senators who opposed
tho force bill and delayed the pas
sage of thc McKinley measure as
long as possible. These Senators,
they claim, have lost the party at
least twenty Congressmen. Chair
man neiden saw the landslide two
weeks ago and was shrewd enough
togo home, leaving J. S. Clarkson to
bear tho burden of tho battle and
the defeat. Neither bc nor Con
gressman Carter, of Montana, has
been herc for a fortnight. Clarkson,
however, bas remained nt his post,
pushing all tho department employ
ees for contributions for uso in thc
doubtful districts and endeavoring
to Baye as many as bc can.
Experiment Station nt Furt Hill.
[From tho Cotton Plant.]
PHNDI.KTON, S. C., October 20, '90.
Will you permit mo to give notice
to tho farmers of South Carolina
through your columns that on No
vember 1st, under thc act making
the change, thc Experiment Station
of South Carolina begins its work at
Fort Hill. It is tho desire of those
in charge of this work to bring the
Station as closely as possible into
sympathetic relations with thc agri
cultural people of tho State. We
write them to feel that the Station
is theirs and ready at all times to
take up tho special lines of work
most promising of productive results
which they can appreciate as advan
tageous to their interests. Wo wish
suggestions to bo sent to us freely
that we may learn the special needs
of the various sections of tho State.
While it may bo possible that more
experiments may bo suggested than
can bo carried out, yet thoro will
usually bc selected which will most
concern tho greater number, Our
prime object now is to interest
deeply thc people of the State in the
work of tile Station. Whilst the
College to which tin; Station is at
tached will not bo ready to open its
doors before next fall, tho Station
itself will begin at once very active
work. Respectfully,
fl, A. STRODK,
Director.
Around the World.
Tho passage of tho McKinley ta
riff bill by ino American Congres?
bes caused.great exoitomout in most
foreign eountrios. Our neighbors on
the North, the Canadians, aro espe
cially aggrieved booause no provi
sion was made xor reciprocity, and !
fuvt "uer boc aviso Canadian gooda must
lu tho futuro pay largor instead of
small duties. Already the people
arc talking of looking up other mar
kets. Tho Liberals are strongly in
favor of reciprocity. In England
there is a general dissatisfaetion with
tho provisions of tho bill, and it is
reported that manufacturer? aro
closing thur establishments in all
pnrts of England, throwing thou
sands of workmen out of employ
ment. Tho probability is that wo
shall have as ono of tho fruits of the
tariff polioy of tho Republicans a
largo increase of immigration. Tho
Austrian Primo Ministor is roportcd
lo favor retaliatory measures, but
tho Austrians do not import many
American goods, and it will bo difll- !
oult for them to carry out such a j
policy. Sn Franco tho wildest cx
3itcment prevails, owing to tho faot
that tho McKinley bill increases the
duty on French wines. Tho French
havo for a number of years prohibi
ted American pork absolutely on the
around that it is unhealthy. Thoi
Americans retaliated by raising duty
on French winos, and now thoro is I
great confusion among French wino
merchants and the French peoplo
generally. Fronch silks are alBo
heavily taxed, and thoro is oven talk
of a European Zollverein against
America. Franco will certainly re
taliate in somo effcotivc way. Tho
same derangement is felt in Germany
where thousands of laborers ?u?vo
already been discharged. Thoro is
talk that Germany and Austria will I
modify their protective polioy so SB
to meet thc exigencies created by
tho American law that has just gono
into effect.
Tho following paragraph from tho
Memphis Avalanche will bo read j
with interest by cotton men and far

A bale of cotton picked by machi

That is what was exhibited at tho |
Cotton Exchange yestorday.
It was the first bale picked by
other than human hands ever shipped
Lo this or any other city in tho world,
and if the machine does what its
inventor claims for it he has revolu
tionized the cotton industry and at
tho same time Bottled, to a largo
extent, the negro question. It has
been held ns a valid objection to any
scheme of colonizing the negro out]
of 'the South that be was essential to'
the cotton planter in gathering his
crop. The inventor of tho cotton
picker claims that his machino will
do the work of fifty men. If it will,
then the negro question is solved,
and he will have to seek other
employment elsewhere.
