A REMARKABLY LIGHT VOTE
Partial Returns From the Primaries
Held Yesterday Indicate the Suc
cess of Senator McLnuriu The
Legislature Will lie Called "Upon
to Ratify This Choice in January.
Chaileston, S. C, Aug. 31. The returns
recclvnd here by your correspondent to
night indicate that John L. McLaurin is
elected to the United States Senata, de
feating John Gary Evans and ex-Senator
The voting throughout the State has
been remarkably light. There are still a
number of backwoods precincts to hear
from, and the total vote is estimated to
be not more than 30.000. In Charleston
1,300 votes were cabt, only one-fifth of
tile possible vote. Of theseMcLaurin polled
Although all of the returns will not be
In tonight McLaurin's election Is conceded
by the Evans-lrby combination.
When Senator Earlc died tome months
ago it became ucceE-sary for Gov. Ellerbe
to ajipoint a successor to serve until an
election could take place. The governor
himself wanted the position, but his
friends advised him to wait a few years
and try for Tillman's seat. The strong
est man in the reform party was Con
gressman McLaurln, and after a brief
delaj he wab appointed. The State Demo
cratic executive committee was called to
gether and an election was ordered for
Senator. A campaign was mapped out
which required the candidates to travel
over the State and make speeches In
every county for two months, and a
bitter warfare -was waged among the
followers of Ben Tillman, who wanted
the scat. Personal encounters in n.any
instances were narrowly averted.
it soon became U12 field against McLaurln,
the other camlldates b2ing ex-tlov. Evans,
former United Slates Senator Irby, S. C.
Mayneld. and J. T. Duncan. The last
named two dropped out after a brief
spell of speech-making, and this had the
eltoccof making the fight all the hotter.
Gov. Evans barely escaped biingcowliided
on the stun.p in Greenville because he
said something against the dead Senator
Earlc. As the campaign was rounding
the home stretch, McLaurln and Evans
were getting ho personal that it looked
like a duel.
While McLaurln has won the primary,
-that does not put him through. The pre
liminary election was to get the choice
or tie people of the State, and the legis
lature is to ratify that election. But here
is a hitch. The members of the general
assembly took oath that they would sup
port the nominee of the primary in the
election last year, when Farle was chosen.
Now many of them who are against Mc
Laurin contend that they are not obliged
to support the nominee in tills race. Evans
may form an independent movement to
defeat McLaurln in the legislature next
McLaurln was the candidate of Gov.
Ellf-rbe. He has served Feveral terms In
Congress. It Is alleged by the opposition
that McLaurin's attitude on the tariff i
undemocratic, and that he has endeavored
to get a duty on cotton and other Southern
products He is an avowed Free Silver
Ac 11 o'clock nearly half the precincts
L have been heard from. In a total re
ported vote of 27,000 McLaurln had over
S.000 plurality, with Evans easily doubling
Irby. McLaurin's majority will probably
be 12,000. He Is sUIl ill at his home in
One of the under-current issues in the
election was the strength of Senator Till
man. In the last primary Tinman under
took to espouse the cause of John Gary
Evans, and Evans was defeated, thus giv
ing Tillman a black eye, in the opinion of
the conservative or old-line Democracy of
Taking counsel from this and possibly
a desire to retain all his power and priv
ilege, Tillman declared hini.seir as neutral
in tlic present fight. It was, nevertheless,
everywhere understood that he favored
McLaurin, and it was for that reason that
the result was watched with peculiar in
terest. All of the candidates except Mc
Laurln pooled their Interest against not
onlj the incumbent, but Tillman, and there
was always a veiled attack on Tillman,
because the criticisms or McLaurin's tarirr
views were equally applicable to Tillman,
whose friend and protege McLaurln is.
In the only public references to the cam
paign Tillman spoke favorably of Mc
Laurm'b turif f views, and that sec at rest
the attack made on McLaurin's tariff posi
tion. McLaurin had against him In the field
both Evans, who was badly beaten on his
record n 1S9G, and Irby, who failed to
stand for re-election because, it is said,
of his failure to make a record while in
the United States Senate.
Apart from the fact that McLaurln Is per
Konallj popular his sympathy with Tillman
went fat toward giving him the victory as
It is not likely if the primary be declared
In bis favor that there will be an y difficnitv
in his election by the legislature next Jan
uary. One of the latest utterances of
Senator Tillman InNew York was that the
man who received the majority In the
primary would be indorsed by the legisla
ture. McLaurin is a free silver enthusiast.
Ills tariff views are the same as those of
Bacon of Georgia. Tillman, Rawlinsof Utah
and the new tariff cult as It was developed
at the last session of Congress.

THEIR BOAT CAPSIZED.
Young Son of Mr. Hurlingame Is
Drowned ut Sandy Point.
Frederick H. Burlingamo, jr., aged eight
years, son of the well-known Bureau of
Printing and Engraving employe, was
drowned off Sandy Point on Monday
while on a trip upon his father's boat.
The party, compohed of Mr. Burhnganu,

vacation. The boat -vas caught In a

hngatne and liis son were thrown into the
water Kiine distance from the craft, while
the two friends succeeded in climbing up
on th hull.
Mr. Burlingame swam to his son's assist
ance and carried the boy to the boat. He
called to his friends to take hold of the
lad, and thinking that they heard him,
swam aroundthe stern to cut loose the
yawlboat. He had some difficulty lu doing
this in the darkness, but finally succeeded,
after having thrown off his slioes and
lie then swam around to where he had
left nis friends and asked what had become
or the lad. They replied that they did not
know as they had not seen him. It was
then found out that the two men had not
heard Mr. Burlingame when he called out
to them to take hold of the boy.
The party went ashore in the yawl
boat, and Mr. Burlingame reached the city
late last night. He will make arrange
ments with Harbormaster Sutton to have
the body dragged for.

IN CHARGE OF A MARSHAL.
iV United States Deputy on Duty
nt Willard's Hotel.
Willard's Hotel was In chargeon Monday
and last night or deputy United States
marshals, at the instance of Mr. O. G
Staples, who holds the Ieas2 on the property
from Mr. Joseph Willard. A sublease
was made to the Messrs. Lewis, who spent
large sums of money, it is said about
$05,000, in handsome furniture and other
appointments, payments for a part being
secured by notes.
The season at all the hotels has been not
so flourishing as It might have been and
several of them.it is said, have not even
made their expenses. Mr. Staples, It Is
understood, is forcing payment of rent by
legal process in the United States district
court. Deputy John F. Cuslck, of the
marshal's of fice, was in charge of the build
ing last night.
An effort was made to see Mr. Staples
and Mr. Lewis last night. At the Riggs
House it was stated that Mr. Staples had
left the city, and the clerk at Willard's
declined to send a message to Mr. Lewis,
who was in the hotel.
It Is not likely, however, that a hotel
like this will be closed for long, if at all.

Paris, Aug. 31. On June 22 London
celebrated the fete for which she had been
preparing for months. Today Paris gave
vent to a spontaneous, impromptu outburst
of joy. It is impossible not to caraptfre
the two occasions witnessed in such close
succession. It is equally Impossible to find
points ot resemblance. London's colossal,
busines,s-like demonstration of deep .smoul
dering emotion had little likeness to Parts
gay spint and passionate abandon. Lon
don's decoration, lavish and frequently
ta.-teless, was slowly but solidly erected.
Paris commenced her toilette Saturday
uud finished it at noon today, producing
as beautiful and graceful effect as does
the cunniug touch of delt woman's flngera.
There wai a striking difference between
the London crowd, which waited for tSe
Queen's procession mostly in silence, and
the crowd which assembled today to wel
come the president ot the republic Hera
the air was filled with cheerful sound
and outbursts of merry laughter.
The !ur. shone throughout the day and
a cool breeze tempered its rays. It was a
perfect evening when at 6 o'clock punc
tually the Presidential train entered tie

and his voice choked with emotion, merely
said in response:
"Gentlemen: I thank you."
He then re-entered his landau, while a
liand played the Russian national hymn.
Instead of me usual "Mar-clllalse."
Here one saw the heart of Paris laid
bare with palpitating emotion. The
thought crossed the mind, what must bo

they find that they have been deceived?
The ceremonies lasted only six minutes,
but they were crowded with emotdns suoH
