0 The primary election ou last Friday
brought out the largest vote that has
ever been polled in a primary election
in this County. This has been the sub?
ject' of some surprise to many of our
people, but it only shows that there are
quite a number of Democrats who have
not been voting in our previous elections.
It is not a larger number of votes than
the census of the County calls for. The
primary jest passed was a very interest?
ing one, for there were a large number
of candidates and several close contests
between strong, men. This brought as
near, every voter to the primaries as pos?
sible^ and Ihe result shows that there are
over 8ix hundred Democrats who have
not heretofore, been voting. Some of
these,, of course, are young men who
have become twenty-one in the past two
years, and also men who have moved
into the County during that time; but it
is safe to say that the result shows at
least: three hundred men who have not
been taking any part in previous elec?
tions. We have them started now, and
we hope they will continue to take their
part in the elections which are to follow.
Every man who voted on last Friday
ought to vote in the general election,
and every one who has not yet registered,
but is entitled to register, should do so
immediately. All those who have lost
their tickets should at once have them
renewed and fix to give a larger majority
in this County in November than we
have ever done.
an ebboneocs impression.
The' Editor of the Intelligences
has received a communication as County
Chairman from a gentleman living in
the lower portion of the County, which
contends that the County Executive
Committee made a mistake in declaring
the . result of the recent election for
County Commissioners, aud should have
declared Col. Joshua Jameson elected,
as he thinks Col. Jameson received a
majority of the votes cast for County
Commissioners. He reaches this con?
clusion by adding up all the votes receiv?
ed far County Commissioners, which
makes 10,885. This he divides by the
number of Commissioners to be elected,
which gi ves the vote cast as 3,628. Then
1815 would be a majority of this vote,
and as Col. Jameson received 1876 he
had a majority. The mistake our friend
makes is in failing to allow for the men
who voted for only one or two Commiss?
ioners. Under his plan a little over
one-sixth of the vote cast could nominate
the Commissioners. For example, sup?
pose in an election there are three thou?
sand voters and six candidates for
Commissioners?A, B, C, D, E and F.
Then suppose that the whole 8,000 voters
were to determine that they would only
vote for a single man, and 501 of them
voted for A , 501 for B, 501 for C, 499 for
D, 499 for E a A 499 for F. According
to our friend's method these votes would
give a total of 3,000. Divide this by the
?umber to be elected, which is three,
and you have one thousand as the vote
cast, and 501 as a majority of this
number, so that a little over one-sixth of |
the men voting would nominate a par?
ticular candidate. The report given by
the managers of election was that there
were 3,795 votes cast. They did not
report any failures to vote for County
Commissioners; therefore the number
necessary for a majority was 1898. Col.
Jameson received 1876, or twenty-two
votes less than a majority, and hence
under the rule has to run it over.
The same question arose with Capt.
Vandiver for the House of Represeata
tives two years ago, and the principle
was then settled by the Committee, and
no Convention has seen fit to change the
rule. Capt. Vandiver ran over, and was
elected. The same is likely to be the re?
sult in the case of Col. Jameson, but we
have thought it right to say this much
in order that his friends might not be
deceived into failing to vote for him next
time. He has not yet been nominated.
He lacked twenty-two votes of it.
RESULT OF THE PBIMABtf ELECTION.
The result of the primary election on
last Friday shows that the people of
Anderson County either are in favor of
the State University, the Citadel and the
Columbia Canal, or that they care so
little about them that they are willing to
leave them entirely in the bands of the
men they elect to the Legislature. Of
the men nominated in the primaries, only
one was elected who is opposed to the
University and the Citadel, and he was
not elected on this issue, but because of
bis personal popularity, growing out of
the fact that he is an agriculturalist and
lives on one side of the County?the sen?
timent being to have at least two Repre?
sentative* in the next Legislature practi?
cally identified with the agricultural in?
terest and representing different sections
of the County, without reference to tbeir
views on these matters. There were
only two candidates from the country
running in the primary, and both of them
were elected by tbe highest votes in the
primary. One faTored and the other
opposed these institutions, and tbe one
who favored them ran 138 votes ahead
of the one who opposed them. Of tbe
five candidates from the City four favored
and one opposed them, The four who
favored them ran considerably ahead of
the one who opposed them, and we be?
lieve their position upon this question
contributed in a very large measure to
tbe result. As the delegation now stands,
three will vote for appropriations to these
institutions and one against them. The
Canal seems to have been swallowed up
in the interest on tbe University, two of
the men elected being in favor of com?
pleting it, if upon examination they
think the State will be benefited, and
two opposed to iL One of the two who
favor it is Col. Rucker, who voted for it
when in the Legislature before. Tbe
two old members re-elected, Messrs.
Scudday and Clinkscales, both voted
against it. These were the only former
members running, and the result indi?
cates that this question played very little,
if any, part at all in the result. There is
one thing, however, that may be put
down as certain, and that is that tbe
next canvass in Anderson County will be
conducted on live issues and not upon
settled ones. The University and tbe
Canal will not disturb the visions of the
politicians again in this County. They
are settled questions, and the people of
Anderson County cannot be induced to
undertake the impossible task of abolish?
A Xewberry Man Curses bis Wife and
Then Kills Her
Newbecby, August 19.?A most dia?
bolical murder was committed at this
place between 1 and 2 o'clock to day.
Mr. John P. Sloan shot and tilled his
wife. It seems some family unpleasant?
ness has existed between them for some
months. In November last Mrs. Sloan
had her husband indicted for assault and
battery. He was tried and found guilty
and fined and placed under a bond to
keep the peace. The case was carried to
tbe Circuit Court, and upon petition to
the presiding judge the fine was remitted
and the peace bond was cancelled. Mrs.
Sloan would leave her husband frequent?
ly. About a week ago she left him and
came to town and rented rooms. Her
children, seven in number, came with
her. Her home is about four miles from
town. It is reported that last night
Sloan came and stole two of the children.
To-day he entered the house where his
wife was staying by the rear entrance,
found her sitting in tbe back piazza,
cursed her, fired two shots at her ana
fled. Both shots took effect, the first
entering the shoulder and the second
passing through Mrs. Sloan's let lung
and piercing tbe heart. From the direc?
tion of this shot it is evident that it was
Sred after the unfortunate woman had
fallen. No one was present except an
old negro man who lives on Mrs. Sloan's
plantation and had come to see her on
An inquest was held this afternoon
and a verdict in accordance with the
above facts was rendered. A sheriff's
posse was sent in search of Sloan imme?
diately, but at this writing he is still at
large. The community is greatly excited
over the terrible affair, and if Sloan
should be apprehended to-night there is
strong probability of his being lynched.

MAHOSE AND BUTLER.
Two Political Tramps Seeing Trouble.
Special to the Baltimore Sun.
New York, Aug., 21.?Gen. Butler
end Secretary Chandler held a private
interview thia morning. It is stated tbat
the Republican managers have to day
expressed alarm at Butler's program for
a fusion electoral ticket and its effect
upon Blaine's prospects*in States like
Michigan, Iowa and Massachusetts. It
is also said tbat Secretary Chandler's in
terview with him was for the purpose of
inducing him to reconsider ibis plan,
and to run a straight electoral ticket of
his own. A friend of Gen. Butler's said
to-night that he had positively refused
to listen to this advice, aud had Btated
that should he follow that course every
one would believe the assertion recently
made to the effect that he was running
in the interest of Blaine. This was not
his purpose. He was running solely in
his own interest and that of the work
iugmen whom he represented, and be
did not intend the people of this country
to believe for one moment that he was a
dummy for any man or any candidate.
He intended to make the best of the re?
sources at his command and to do every?
thing to build up his party. Should his
Srogram of fusion in electoral tickets in
oubtful States be carried out, there
could probably be only one result, name?
ly, the throwing of the election into* the
House of Representatives. Should that
occur, the people of thin country would
no longer look down upon the party
which he represented, but would hereaf?
ter regard it as a factor of great impor?
tance, aud one to be conciliated. In his
opinion it would also have another result
in giving to it an impetus which would
make it one of the great parties in 1888.
Senator Mahone is in this city for the
purpose of securing the aid of the Re?
publican managers to put down the re?
bellion against his authority of Gov.
Cameron and others in Virginia. He
described the situation iu tbat State as
desperate, and says that if the trouble is
not immediately settled there will be no
Sossible show for the Republicans in
fovember. He called upon Chairman
Jones to-day, but nothing definite was
done pending the return of Steve Elkins,
who has been absent from the city for
several days. Mahone complains very
bitterly of the support which he is now
receiving from the national administra?
tion. He Bays that he got all he desired
prior to the first of June, but nuw be is
not supported as he ought to be, and that
if he had sufficient backing in this
quarter be could settle bis home troubles
without aid from the Blaine managers.
But he adds tbat cold water is thrown on
his plans, and the Republican party in
his State is enfeebled and rapidly going
to pieces. His interview with Secretary
Chandler to day was for the purpose of
securing the assistance which he required.
It is said that Mr. Chandler promised to
do what he could, but tacitly admitted
that at the present time bis hands were
General Butler on the Stump.
Providence, R. L, August 20.?Gen?
eral Butler spoke again last night in the
Coliseum at Rocky Point to a small au?
dience. He said he had followed the
banner of the Democracy unwillingly
because it was the bauuer of slavery.
He kept his bargain with that party,
which in those days was the nearest
straight. Jefferson Davis was constitu?
tionally right. He fought for his party
until he found his country was in danger
and then left the party. He stood by
greenbacks because nothing else was
paid to the soldiers during the war, and
what was good enough for the soldiers
was good enough for the bankers. He
stood by the Republican party until it
Eut forward for President a man whom
e could not support; then, without
altering a single sentiment, he left and
supported a gallant soldier. He brought
the labor issue before the Democratic
party, and the principle was spurned.
He left them and appealed to the people.
He had not changed one hair, and what
he had done was not done in a corner.
A Water-Spout at Fort Mill.
Columbia, August 22.?Passengers
on the up train on the Charlotte Rail?
road yesterday afternoon state that at
Fort Mill tbey passed through one of
the most terrific downpours of rain that
'bey had ever known. For one mile on
either side of Fort Mill the tainfall was
tremendous. At fort Mill the water
covered the railroad track in the cuts to
a depth of eight inches. The streams
were far out of their banks and all the
low lands were submerged. Crossties
tbat bad been lying in the ditches were
lifted up by the water and lodged across
the rails, causing tbe train lo be stopped
until tbey could be removed. A peculiar
fact was tbat on either side of the two
mile stretch tbe amount of rainfall was
scarcely sufficient to lay the dust. There
was considerable wind and thunder and
lightning, but the damage was confined
to the crops in certain localities. There
were seasonable rains all along the line
of the Columbia and Greenville Road

?Gentlemen : I have the honor to ac?
knowledge the receipt of your communi?
cation notifying me of my nomination
by the Democratic Convention at Chica?
go as a candidate for the office of Vice
President of the United States. May I
repeat what I Baid on another occasion,
that it is a nomination which I had
neither expected nor desired, and yet I
recognize and appreciate the high honor
done me by tbe Convention. Tbe choice
of such a body, pronounced with such
unusual unanimity, and accompanied
with so generous an expression of esteem
and confidence, ought to outweigh all
merely personal desires and preferences
of my own. It is with this feeling, and
I trust also from a deep sense of public
duty, that I now accept the nomination,
and shall abide the judgment of my
courjtry men. I have examined with care
the declaration of principles adopted by
tbe Convention, a copy of which you
submitted to me, and in their sum and
Bubstance I heartily endorse and approve
the same. I am, gentlemen, your obedi?

Killed by a Thunderbolt.
Brunson, August 22.?On the after?
noon of August 20 three boys, (Youmans
by name,) went out to shoot an alligator.
On returning from tbe hunt a cloud came
up well charged with electricity, and be?
fore they could reach their homes tbe
rain began to fall. The parents of two
of them seeing that they would be caught
in the rain sent another of their sons
with an umbrella to meet them. Two of
the boys, (brothers,) took shelter under
a tree while tbe other, a cousin, ran on.
Tbe brother who had gone to meet them
had not reached the tree when tbe light?
ning Btruck the tree mangling the tree
considerably and prostrating the boys to
the ground, where they laid as if they
?were dead. They were carried home im?
mediately and a physician was called in,
who did all that medical skill could do
to revive the unfortunate lads. The
younger of the twain, who is about ten
years of age, soon revived, while the re?
covery of the older, aged fifteen, was
slow and doubtful. During the follow?
ing night he was at times rational, and
then he would relapse into a state of un?
consciousness. Each of them was burnt
aud scarred dreadfully. In many places
the skin was pealed off and little hol?. .
or dents left in the flesh. The older boy
died from tbe effects of tbe shock on tbe
afternoon of the 21st. Tbe other boy is
still suffering great pain, but hopes are
entertained of his recovery. The dead
boy had a gun in his hand when he was
struck. A piece of wood split from the
stock was tbe only damage done to tbe
gun. It was not even discharged by tbe
stroke. Mr. J. A. Youmans, the father
of the boys, is our town marshal.
Maud S. Sold to Robert Bonner for
New York, August 19.?The Turf,
Field and Farm to-morrow will publish
the following: Probably no prominent
man ever paid another prominent man so
marked a compliment aa W. H. Vander?
bilt has just paid Robert Bonner.
"Maud S., as all intelligent horsemen
know, has made the fastest record of any
trotting horse in the world. She is the
only animal that has trotted a mile in
less than 2:10. Her record is 2.09$.
This figure a few years ago was deemed
beyond the reach of a trotting horse.
Vanderbilt was lately offered $100,000
for the great chestnut, but he declined it,
preferring to sell her for less than half
of that sum to Mr. Bonner, who he
knew would not trot her io public races.
Last Friday Mr. Vanderbilt sent a friend
expressly from Saratoga to inform Mr.
Bonner of these facts, and on Saturday
Mr. Bonner sent his brother David up to
Saratoga to confer with Mr. Vanderbilt.
The result was that Mr. Bonner pur?
chased the mare on Monday evening,
paying $40,000 for her. Of seven great
trotters which in succession have beaten
the record?Flora Temple, Dexter, Gold?
smith Maid, Rams, St. Julien, Jay-Eye

three of them?Dexter, Rarus and Maud
S. What a trio! Mr. Bonner was asked :
"Suppose Jay-Eye-See should beat the
record of Maud S., what would you do
then ?" His answer was characteristic :
"Buy him, too, if I could, or put Maud
S. into training at some good track#like
Charter Oak, at Hartford, and give the
public a free exhibition of speed.

A Governor's Danger.
Galveston, August 22.?Tbe report?
ed arrest of Governor Ireland at Houston
is false. Governor Ireland, accompanied
by Hon. Barnett Gibbs, candidate for
lieutenant governor; Congressmen Wei
1 born and Miller, together with about one
hundred delegates to the late convention,
arrived at Gaiveston last evening. Mar?
shall Tracy informed a representative of
the associated press that he bad no in?
tention of arresting the governor during
bis attendance upon the State convention
at Houston. The marshal has no fears
that the governor will seek to avoid the
service of tbe warrant, and hence he has
selected another time and place for the
arrest of the governor under the Fran?
cois affidavits. The famous miscegena?
tion case of Emil Francois originated
here in 1879. He was tried under the
State law of 1858, which makes it a
penitentiary offense for a white person to
marry a negro?the negro not being
amenable. The case was appealed to the
supreme court of Texas, aud was there
affirmed. It was then carried before
United States District Judge Duval, and
the ground urged that the law under
which conviction was had was in conflict
with the fourteenth amendment. Judge
Duval concurred in the decision of the
circuit court. Ex-United States District
attorney 0. C. Garland, who was then,
as now, connected with the case, appeal?
ed to Circuit Judge Woods. That official
thought the writ of habeas corpus should
issue, and instructed Garland to lay the
matter before Duval, but Duval died and
Judge Turner was appointed to the va?
cancy. Turner declined to take action,
inasmuch as Francois had then been in
the penitentiary long enough for the
questiou of jurisdiction to arise. Garland
then sent the papers to United States
Judge Morrill, of the eastern district at
Gaiveston, but they were returned to him
without action. Upon tbe appointment
of Sabin the application was again made
but refused. Subsequently the matter
was brought up by Judge Sabin, who
called Garland home from Connecticut
for the purpose of prosecuting the case.
The question involved is tbe validity of
ante-bellum statutes since the adoption
of the fourteenth amendment, and all
decisions so far of both State and federal
courts have been that tbe State law does
not conflict with the federal constitution.
The questiou has never gone to the
supreme court of the United States. It
is held tbat the fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments were to prevent discrimina?
tion agaiust the negro, while this law
discriminates against whites. As to the
suit brought by Garland in behalf of
Francois, charging Governor Ireland with
conspiracy to defraud Francois of his
citizenship, it is regarded by Governor
Ireland as of trivial importance, and by
tbe federal authorities here as mere folly.
Let us see what distances have been
gained by this 16} seconds of faster trot?
ting speed. In 1844 Lady Suffolk made
a mile or 5280 feet in 2 minuteu 27} sec?
onds. This was at the rate of 36 feet and
2 inch every second. The whole distance
gained therefore in the 16} seconds by
Maud S. in 1884 was 585 feet 8fr inches,
or a little over 1-9 of a mile. This is a
tremendous gain in speed and would seem
to practically examplify Dr. Woodrow's
theory of progressive evolution. Horses
by training have been graded up in
swifter trotting. To do this many good
things have been needed ; in the horse,
greater muscular power, hardier endu?
rance, more zealous spirit, higher train?
ing, more practiced skill in the trotting
paces, the fullest capacity for sustained
exercise at the very limit of strength,
and absolute physical health and perfec?
tion of frame; in tbe man every scien?
tific appliance for developing and aiding
the animal, breeding with a correct
knowledge of the laws of heredity, as?
sisting nature, repressing the bad and
the weak, developing tbe good and the
strong, skillfully using every advantage
oflmproved track and judicious driving.
The result is wonderful. It is the
vindication of the divine laws of nature
and progress. It is the triumph of sci?
ence. It is tbe superb lest of the great
principles of improvement.

cans, yesterday, to consider the position
of the Irish vote in the present canvass
to be quite incorrect.

pressions," she says, "which it is essen?
tial to correct. First of all, there was
no conference with Catkolic Bishops.
Indeed, there was no conference at the
Parker House at all, so far as I am con?
cerned, nor did I speak in the name of
my son, as stated, at the so-called confer?
ence. In the interview I had with mem?
bers of the press it was furthest from my
intention to represent, and I certainly
did not represent, any of my suggestions
as coming from, or being authorized by,
Mr. Parnell. I am quite pained to find
that the few things 1 said in the interest
of two nations?of the Americans as
well as the Irish, for, if I am an Irish?
woman, I am also a Yankee?should
have been twisted into so wrong and in?
accurate a shape. This threefold dart,
in touching me, touches also the interest
of my son of Ireland, and it hurts me
all the more because I am a woman.
What I said to the press representatives
who called upon me was substantially
"Certain things have been running
through my brain, and among others is
the question of the great surplus of the
United States revenue from importduties.
A good way to reduce the annual surplus
would be to admit certain goods free of
duty, viz: to allow goods of Irish man?
ufacture, which do not conflict with
American manufacture, to be admitted
free. This would encourage Irish manu?
factures and be the means of sending
money to Ireland, and, in the end keep
Irish people contented and happy at
home and furnish them with the means
of support. Certain goods are exclusive?
ly of Irish manufacture. Among the
list are fringes, coarse woollens, linens,
corduroys, moleskin cloths, balbriggan
goods, laces, Bellelk pottery, &c. A move?
ment is already on foot in New York to
encourage the importation and sale of
Irish goods, and the movement is likely
to become general. That is about all
that I said, *The story of a proposition
either from my son or from me to the
Eepublican and Democratic parties re?
garding the Irish vote and the further
narrative of the explicit terms of that
proposition are altogether without the
Washington, August 22.?Secretary
Post, of the Democratic Congressional
campaign committee, discovered to-day
that that committee was inadvertently
helping along the Republican campaign
by distributing Republican documents.
The Democratic committee has been
sending out as one of its - principal
campaign documents, the speeches de?
livered by Senator Voorhees on the im?
prisonment of McSweeney. *he IriBh sus?
pect, by the British offic.a;. during the
(iarneld administration, and copies of
these speeches are obtained by the com?
mittee by requisition upon the Senate
folding-room. They are delivered to the
committee in large quantities, several
thousand at a time already folded, and in
wrappers, addressed by the committees'
employees and placed in the mails. It
appears to have been the custom of the
committee to rely altogether upon the
integrity and care of the Senate folding
room officials, and to mail the documents
received by them without examination.
To-day, however, an employee of the
committee discovered, by accidentally
opening one of the documents he was
about to mail, that instead of Voorhees'
speech, the committee was distributing,
"Where they would do the most good," a
Republican campaign document entitled
"The History and Beneficence of Protec?
tion," made up of speeches on the pro?
tectionist side of the tariff question de?
livered in the House of Representatives
last winter. An examination followed,
and disclosed the fact all the supposed
Voorhees speeches in possession of the
committee were copies of this document.
Secretary Post went at. once to the super?
intendent of the folding room, and took
him to task about the matter, and was
informed that the substitution of the one
document for the other was an honest
mistake. It is not known how many
Republican documents were sent out by
the Democratic committee. They them?
selves have no means of establishing the

A PRESERVE THE %\W
,JSOLD ONLY BY -
J. A. DANIELS.
"Y"oU cannot afford to use common Spec?
tacle?, made with iron frames, and set with
cheap pressed lenses, with irregular, un?
polished surfaces, and cone out of centre,
when for a little more you can get a nice
steel, elastic, blue frame, with patent silver
nose-piece, (to adjust the cone in front of
the sight,) and will not rnst. King's
frames are set with pure white ground,
regular, polished surface lenses, with cone
in centre. These Spectacles will preserve
the eye from decay, by supplying it with
the exact, perfect magnifying power that
nature has lost, thus preventing the invol?
untary strain that adds damage to weak?
ness of the most sensitive and valuable
member of the human body.
Fitting the Spectacles is QUITE IMPOR?
TANT. After trying on a number of Spec?
tacles, the customer's vision is so confused
he cannot judge right. I have a Patent
Optoraiter, (or eye measurer) that will get
the exact focus at once. Dr. Holland writes
"My wife suffered a long time with bead
ache, by the involuntaryatrain on the optic
nerve, and King's Spectacles promptly re?
lieved it. (Signed) S. N. Holland."
Spectacles should be used as soon as their
aid will prevent straining the eye, just as a
crutch is used to prevent strain on a sprain?
ed ankle. Economy says get the ''Best of
Everything," especially of Spectacles. If
light hurts the eye, or you are inclined to
squint the eye, or if the eye is sore, get

and are not satisfied with them, will please
