FIGHTING TAXES WITH FIRE.
Terrtble tbreak of the workinsg Cles
in Sicily.
RoM, January 2 -Dispatches re.
Geived from Sicily today show that the
auti-tax movement has made great pro
gress in the province of Trapani. Sev
eral days ago the discontent in Campo.
bello, a town of 6,000 inhabitants, near
Trapani city, had become so threaten
ing that the town council passed a ros
olution abolishing the wheat octroi.
As protests against this action the
millers refused to reduce the price of
fiour and the bakers announced an in
crease in the price of bread.
When these measures became known
yesterday morning about a thousand
men and fifty or more women of the
working class gathered from the town
and the surrounding country and be
gan marching through the streets. The
police who tried to disperse them were
put to fight. The rioters set fire to
all the public buildings except the
town hall. From these buildings the
fire spread to private houseb. While a
lar district was in flameg the mtob
le; the owners and officials alone to
fight the fire, marched to the prison
and took it by storm. All the persoi:s
were liberated.
The soldiers who had been continev
in their barracks were driven out b
fire and then turned their attention t t
saving the rest of the town. The-)
were very forbearing and did not 1ii
or use their bayonets upon the ioib.
Nearly a third of the town is now iii
ruins. Many families that were buri
ed out walked the streets all last night .
The whole towi looks as if it had sut
fered from a bombardment. Amoi.g
the buildings destroyed were every
mill and miller's house in the place.
At Salemi, a town of 15,00o ilhalbi

rioters shortly before dark vest erday.

grand bail in celebration of the hooh

Pamerce, in Pecos county, near the
Rio Girande border, Thursday night,
It was attended by the Mexican cow
boys for many miles around. There
was a great scarcity of y oung women.
and there were a number of rows dur
ing the evening among the surplus of
young men, as to whose turn It was to
claim the girls for the dances. Li

up in a general fight between the

W As111INOTON, Jan. 2.--Mr. Wilso
the leader of the Democratic forces I
the House of Representatives has ima
one New Year's resolution, whicti 11
proposes to live up to in spite of tt
calamity howlers in the House an
Senate. IIe has resolved to pass tl
.,riff bill prepared by the ways at
means committee through the Ilou
during the present month. In that e
fort he will have the support of eve
true I)emocrat in Congress. lIe sa:
the bill in its present shape may I
quire certam amendments, but lie I
not the slightest doubt of the final pu
sage of the bill substantially as it w
reported from the committee.
It is expected that the Republical
and some of the Democratic ProtA
tionists will vigorously oppose ai
change in the present tariff that mig
be suggested, but Mr. Wilson and the
who stand ready to help him carry o
the policy of the Democratic party,
not intend to be frightened by t
threats of the opposition. There w(
inany Republicans in the House a
Senate who voted for the passage
the McKinley bill when they knew a
openly declared that it was not wha
majority of the people of the coun
wanted. It was made a party meast
by the Republican leaders, the pa
whip was applied and every Repul
can stopped up to the rack and cast
vote in accordance with the dlctate8
the Republican bosses.
There are a nuier of good I)ei
crats who do not favor all the pros
ions of the Wilson bill, but they do i
propose to repudiate their party
gratily their political opponents. 'I
Iepublicans have contiaded from I
very day that Mr. Clevehud was
lcted that the )emocrats did I
possess the required amoit of nei
to revise -the tartiI. If they have
vested their money in support of th
judgement in that direction they v
probably have occasion to regret ti
they had so little faith in the decla
tions of the Democrats.
During the present week, it is urnd
stood, the Domocratic mneimbers of I
louse will hold a cauci.s and( indit
in a general family talk. Some of I
lepublicins who profess to have I
gift o anticipating what Will happ
in caictis predict that the minj;)rity
the )imocrats will eithor decide to <
feat the Wilson bill outright or vote
recommit the bill to the ways a
mieans committe for fur lier revisiot
I hlive discussed the subject w
many of the aolust Democrats in t
Hiouse during the past two or thi
days and they pronounce such st.a
ments too silly for serious conside
tion. One of the men, who exerci:
more i-iluence with Democratic me
burs than anyone else in the louse, 4
cept Sp-aker Crisp told ine that the
tion of the coming caucus will not
binding upon thos., who participate
it. It is thought to be desirable
come together and talk over the po
icA sit.uation in the louse and mi
such suggestions as will result ii
tettex unier.tanding of the ditty i
volvlng upon the I)emocratic majori
I f the Republicans fancy for one i
ment that Speaker Crisp, Messrs. I
son. Catchings, Turner of Georg
Culberon, Breckinbridge of Arkans
McMlillin, flatch and the other Deu
cratic members are going to let t
minority rule in the present Congre
they might as well resolve early in t
new year to change their plans.
A distinguishe Democratic Senat
who is generally supposed to be host
to sonme of the views entertained
the President on certain questio
voices the sentiment of all of the D)e
ocratic Congressmen who are willii
to bie (quotedi whern he says: " This i:
I hmocratic Administration, back

Senate ar.d House of Ilepresentativi
andl we propose to go right ahead ai
c(oni:luct the goverm nent in accordan
with D)emocratic principles as we u
derstand them." Some of the llepr.
licans are endeavoring to Dromnote d
cord iln the D)emocratic ranks by co
fusling the issues involved. P'reside
Cleveland is not on trial, as some
them wvould have it appear. lHe is t

Admission to Clemson.
The Greenville News says that on
account of the very large number of
applications for admission into Clemson
college at the next session many more
, than the college can possibly receive, a
n great many persons interested, both
e parents and students. are constantly
e making inquiries as to what methods
e will be adopted to determine which
d ones will be admitted. The board of
ke trustees have adopted several rules
.d regulating the governing the admission
se of students. All young men will be
C. required to stand examinations as at
ry colleges. They will also be required to
s stand physical examinations, and such
0. as have contagious diseases and who
as are physically unable to fultill the du
, ties required of them will not be ad
as mitted. Applicants who are qualiiled
to enter the college proper will have
Is precedence over those applying for ad
c. mission into the preparatory depart
ly ment. According to tho best informa
It tion obtainable about three hundred of
se the old students will return. They, of
ut course, betag already in the college,
do will not be disturbed. The board has
he not yet decided how many students
ire will be admitted at the next term, but
nd there v:ill be room for two or three
of hundred new ones in addition to those
n1d already there. It is their purpose to
t a distribute admission to the college in
Sry the counties in proportion to their
ire representation in the lower branch of
rty the legislature. Therefore any county
)li. which has its quota in the students al
his ready in the college will not be entitled
of to any additional students until the ap
plicants of those counties which have
ao. not their quota has been fully supplied
1,- Then again it would be impossible tc
lot accommodate the applicants even foi
to one night at the college when they
,he have gone there to be examined. Th(
,he board has therefore decided to havE
re- examinations conducted in the coun
lot ties of the State which will be presidec
ve over by one of the professors of Clem
in. son assisted by competent residents of
eir each place and the successful appli
rill cants will be f Urnished with evidencE
,at entitling them to admission. ThesE
ra. examinations will begin about the
middle of January and ample notice ol
er- the time and place will be given s
he that all interested may attend them
All applicants, whether they be pay
he students or not will be required t<
lie stana these examinations. The nexi
en session will begin Thorsday, Feuruar3
of 15th.

se. People do nOt understand what became
v- of the salary reduction bill which
adl passed the Ilouse and Senate at the last
ir- session of the Legislature. The facts
are these: The bill passed both houses.
It was approved by Governor Tillman
on the 22d of December. It was to go
an into effect on the 1st of January, 1894.
13. The next day the Legislature passed
10 the appropriation bill. Those interest.
93 ed in salaries remaining as they are
3e. succeeded in getting section 13 added
iy, to this bill. It provides that the saia
ir- ries as at present fixed shall remain as
id they are for the year 1894. This bill
et was signed on the 23rd of December.
Is.. Tn'is will virtually kill the sahlry re

MUST BE ENFORCED.
That is Wh4t Governor Tillman Says
About the Dispensary Law.
COLUMBIA, S. C., January 2.-Trial
Justices of South Carolina begin to
shake. If they do not comply exactly
with what they are told to do they
will soon be discharged. It cannot,'be
very pleasant to stand in imminent
danger of losing one's place on ac
count of some body's notion that or.,
is not doing all he can to crush out
"blind tigers."
The mandate has gone forth and to
day Governor Tillman, who in this
case has a right to be a prophet, said
that some of the worthy justices would
be dismissed within the next sixty
days. Governor Tillman said he would
remove the first trial justice in whom
he found the slightest inclination to de
viate from the law. If he heard of any
of thei patronizing "bhna tigers" that
would be cause for immediate and un
ceremonious removal.
Yesterday Governor Tillman devoted
most of his time to the municipalities
and providing for the pay of the State
constables. Today was "trial justice
day." They were provided with full
and exact instructions. First of all
they got copies of the new law, and as
a kind of New Year's supplement the
following instructions:
Under the Act approved Depenber 2,
a copy which is herewith sent you, the
duty will largely devolve on trial jus
tices of enforcing the law. The stat
utes, as construed by the Supreme
Court, require that cri minal cases com
ing within the jurisdiction of trial jus
tices shall be tried by a jury on the
demand of the defendant, otherwise by
the trial justice himself. Jurors are to
be summon(d by the constables after
six names have been drawn from a hat
in which eighteen names have been
placed by the constable. It will be the
duty of trial justices to see that no
names are put in the hat except those
of men who will find a verdict accord
ing to the evidence and not perjure
themselves through prejudice against
the law. Trial Justices who do not act
with promptness and vigor and en
deavor to enforce the law may as well
send in their res1gnations, as no negli
gence or favoritism will be tolerated.
Enclosed will be found a search war
rant, as well as a form for beginning
nuisance proceedings tinder Section 22
of the Act.
As it is impossible for State consta
bles to cover the entire territory, trial
justices are expected to see that their
constables seize all contraband liquor
and make arrests of parties breaking
the law as provided by the Act. Every
seizure thus made must be reported to
the State commissioner, who will send
a certificate for the shipment to him of
the contraband liquor. For such work
constables will be paid a reasonaule
fee upon reporting the facts to the
Governor.
Special attention is directed to See
tion 20, giving the right to examine
suspicious packages.
Trial justices will in every case ar
rest and proceed against express agents
and railroad agents or other railro d
employees, who lay themselves liable
under the provisions of the law. The
right to search without a warrant ap
plies only to places of business or pub
lic places. In all cases where liquor is
believed to be in a private residence
and is being sold search warrants must
be issued. Peisons are not allowed to
buy in other States and bring into this
State any quantity greater than one
gallon.
The searches must be conflued to de
pots, and nO car will be entered to
make search, unless by express ordlers
of the Governor.
Attorney General Iluchanan has pre
pared the warrant. 'There is likely to
be trouble behind this dlocument. it
reads as follows:

JACK SONYILL E, Fla, Jan. 3.-Th(
sensation of the day in sporting circiet
was the action of Solicitor Christie
representing the State, in refusing t
proceed this morning in the case.
against Corbett and Mitchell. It i
well uncerstood that Christie wai
forced t,hIs action by Governor Mit
chell, at whose will lie holds oflice
The Governor charged "collusion" on
the part of Duval County auttorities
when the cases were brought and it if
said that Christie had received an inti
mation from the executive that if thE
cases were not dropped, he (Christie)
would lose his oflicial- head. Christie
did not have enough of sporting bloo
to stand the gubernatorial gaff, and s(
he dropped the case.
Christie's announcement in courl
that no information had been filet
against Corbett and Mitchell meanl
practically that the case had been no
prossed. It knocked the pins from un
der the club so far as testing the law ir
relation to prize fights is concerned.
The club had depended upon thit
test case to put the lighters beyond ar
rest. As it is now the fighters can b
arrested at the last moment and o:
course everybody knows that an ar
rest at that time means that the figh
shall not taKe place unless the club tie:
the hands of the sherifT so that lie can
not touch them.
The members of the club, however
in spite of the falling through of th
test case, are showing no signs o
weakening and say that if the English
man coin be induced to sign the amend
ed articles they will yet pull off th
contest in Floritla. Just whit th
course of the club will be no one seem.
