Mr. Allen refused to put this motion

WAGENER'S, S. C., April 2.-J. lien
drix LcLane arrived in town last Sat
urday, and after remaining a short
time left here. Ile returned this morn
ing and hold conversations with several
gentlemen. Knowing that McLane
represents the Reform Republican
party and that a meeting has been
called for the 7th of May at this place
by the Reformers, and assuming that
his visit bore relationship to this meet
ing and the propagation generally of
this so-called Reform party, i made in
quiries and received the following in.
formation direct from the gentlemen
whom McLane had approached.
The econd gentleman who McLane
spoke to describes the interview as fol
McLane said: "I want some one of
intelligence who can fairly represent to
the people of this country what we in
tend by our meeting on the 7th. Our
ultimate intentions will not be icade
public just yet, though our speaking
and our election of delegates to Min
neapolis will be public. The true ob
ject of this leauge now Is to rid the
people of the dregs of this old line party
of carpet baggers and to create a conli
dence between the North and South by
not maiing a question of race or color,
but ty selecting the best men for the
ollices. Where it would best influence
that race we would use the negro for
public oflice. We mean to rid the State
of all such villanous men as Webster,
Brayton and Tom Johnston, since they
are a disgrace to the party, and none
deplore it more than the knowing Re
form Republicans do."
ie also stated that these men, about
seven in number, claimed to represent
the entire white Republicans in South
Carolina at the last National Conven
tion. Harrison was in favor of the best
men until he was misled by false rep.
resentations and petitions. Ile would
not have removed any Government of
ficial or employee in South Corolina, but
Brayton, Webster and Jot.ibtoni repre
sented that the men the, recommended
were honorable, high-toned men, and
had done great and invaluable work
for their party and suffered much for
the cause. Ile stated that the most
proininent citizens of Coluintia had
given him great encouragement, and
not only there, but everywhere he had
been, and that a great many prominent
men had intimated that, inl the event
that Tillman got his foot on Sheppard's
neck, a majority of the Sheppard party
would join them in the event that they
put a ticket in the field; that matter
they would consider at the Minneapolis
Convention. And if the Tillman party
saw that. the Sheppard party would win
they would do likewise. lie said their
great aim was for national affairs
though if they saw at any time it was
probable to do effective work, they
would turn their attention to State af
To another gentleman McLane thus
delivered himself: "You are aware
that there will be a meeting here on the
7th, and I want to say that I or some
one else will speak on that day. We
want all the good people of the country
to attend, and we want a good qiiet
meeting. The object fur holding the
meeting here was on account of its be
ing a white section of the State. The
Northern people want this State to
send a delegation composed of Its best
men to Minneapolis, to give the party
a true statement of the affairs of this
State. The State has been misrepre
sented by such men as Jirayton and
\Vebster, who are low dirty men. John
ston,.of the Custom IIouse, is low and
nothing more than a libertine, and not
it to represent us as a people with for
eign (naval) people. Our Reform Re.
publican party wants to get rid of ne
groes, carpet-baggers andl scalawags,
and get the people of the North and
South together. We need the,ir influ
ence and their money. O'ur party wants
to lill all oflices with good men irre
spective of politics. At the meeting
on the 7th we want a meeting of white
people, not niggers."
McLane said that the national comi
mittee had made arrangements with
the Louisville and Nashville Railway
Company so far, and would complete
tnem with other roadls, to transport
the delegates for one-half fare, and
that it would not cost the delegates
anything and they would be paid
handsomely, iIe saidi 'I'he News an d

THE WAR IN VENEZUELA.
Tite 11arbiran Tacticti Itemortod to by
Niw Yoinc, April 29.-A special to
the Iferald froi Laguayra, Venezuela,
says that on April 18 a quantity of
arms from Trinidad, intended for (en.
Crespo, was seized at Ciudad Bolivar.
The Government also captured a son of
the revolutionists, leader, and the
young man, it declares, will be execute d
on the day his father comes within a
league of Caracas, President Palacio
also announced that he will subject
young Crespo to torture unless Mrs.
Crespo divulges her husband's plans.
The Government's losses at the battle
of Tompit de Colon were 330 men killed
and 500 wounded. Gen. Crespo is
marching on Caracas with 18,000 in
fantry and 2,000 cavalry. Tle revolu
tionists are well armed. Of the iuifan
try 8,000 are armed with small calibre
repeaters and 3,000 with rillum of the
lastast model. Most of t hese guns are
of Austrian manufacture and have
been sinuggled in from llamburg
steamships. The cavalry is well I
mounted, having had the pick of horses
in the country through which Crespo
marched. The army is said to be ac
companied by thousands of camp fol
lowers who have risen to join the revo
lutionists and are ready to light as soon
as arms can be found for them. Crespo
is welcomed in all the villages along
the line of march, and money and food I
nre supplied to him from all sides.
Many of the troops in Caracas are sus
pected of disloyalty. lhe garrison is
infested with informers, and upon t
their accusations soldiers are being ar
rested daily for conspiracy against the
l'he fall of Caracas is said to be eer
tain unless Palacio's army can be ur
ited and pushed in pursuit of the rovo
lationists with unprecedented speed.
The revolution has demioralized a large
part of the population. Bands of pluni
derers and highwaymen, calling them
selves revolutionists, infest all districts.
They make raids on the villages, bin-il
the houses and rob the shops. iozens
of wealthy men have been kidnapped I
and held for ransom. There is ab;o
lutely no trade in the region thus it
llicted. Business men are fleeing wit i
their moniey or btryimg it and hasten
ing to the seaport towns.
It was reported just befoi-e the sail
ing of the Amerique that a recuiting
company froal Palaclo's army wos sur
rounded and massacred by the people
of a countrytown in Tachira. Crespo
has captured Casanas, Palacio's ninis
ter of the I ntorior. Hie has warned
Palacio that should further cases of
cruelty toward suspected revolut lonists
in Caracas occur, Casanas will lie taken
out and shot.
Panic prevails in the capital. Guv
ernorneht troops are throwing up
earthworks before the city and citizens
have been compelled to work night and
(lay with pick and shovel. Cattle are
being driven into the city and the garri
son has been provisioned for six weeks.
Most of the shops are closed, and the
price of food is so exorbitant t,hat tia
poorer people are starving to death.
The attack of the revolutionists, it is
expected, will be madie withini two or I
It is believed that 1'alacio is p)rep)ar-I
Ing to ilee, as the main body of his army
is too far distant to succor him before
the attack, and the garrison is too weak
to offer prolonged resistance. The capi
tal is full of rumors as to plots against,

four men were ar-restedl. charged withI

nati Eclectic Medical College In 188%.
Speaking about his past, Dr. Jones
said that when he was a voung man he
led it very wild and dissipated jife, but
i earl.v manhood he had been converted.
He joined the Methodist Church, but
did not hold strictly to any particular
denominational bias. Ever since his
conversion lie had been prompted to
abandon the practice of medicine accord.
ing to the ac :epted theories and to be
in to heal the sick and suffering by
faith alone. For fiIteen years he had
resisted God's will, but six months ago
lie had determined to throw physic away
and rely upon fith in God alonc. Since
that time lie has been perfectly happy,
and has accomplished wonderful results
and made a number ol converts.
Dr. ,oneiS said that some ionthis ago
lie was instructed of God to write a book
organizi a secret society to be kn)wn
as Christ's Council, and it is With this
object in view that lie has come to Char
leston. The first Council will be organ
ized In Charleston, which city will here
atter contain the GirAnd Council When
the Order shall have spread throughouL
the world. Christ's Council is a sacret
organization with by-laws and sacret
signs and pass words, whiWh have been
composed and collected into two books
written by Dr. .Jones. The Doctor will
remain -in Char"eston until the Order
has been established here.

f'ectly helpless condidon. lie asked it
she believed lie was able to cure her.
She replied that she certainly did, and
lie Said then that inl God's name sh1e
ibould be cured. The .1)octor Said that,
Mrs. Riickels could then and there have
. isel and walked, but le had advised
her not to do so for twenty-f'0Ur hours.
She, however, moved her aris and
linmibs freely, a thinlg which she had not
donle for a year.
Yesterday mloring, Dr)i. Jones(1 said,
lie called upon Mrs. Itiekels, and that,
she had arisen and accompaniied1 hiim

T1hie reporter called upon Mrs. litekels
yesterday and found her seat,ed on a
sofar in tbe parlor behind the bakery at,
the corner of Linie and Meeting streets.
Mrs. Rickels is a large elderly lady and
her face showved t,he ravages of' many
months o1' suffering. When t,he object
of the Rleporter's visit hiad been explaini

that, she had rcceived much benefit, fi-om

two years. She had suffe,red much pain
formerly, hbut this was greatly lessened
under Dr. Jfones's tr'eatmnent. She was
still very weak, but, beli'eed that D)r.
.Jones would ultimately entirely dire hier.
WVith the assistance of her son, Mrs.
Rtickels ro.se to her leet and walked
slowly across the room, and then hav

1. W. Bailey and Dri Carter, of Somerset,
Dr. .Joner says that, lie claims !,hat
God has distinctly called him for this
work, and1( that lie works alone in God's
name, Hie no longer believe that, dIrugs
and1( medicmies are healing agencies;
God's power is the only and all sufliclent

gives medicine,, but, this is doiie merely
to st,rengthen the faith of the patient,,
