The republicans polled enough
votes in each congressional district to
base contests upon, perhaps, but little
more, as by large majorities all seven
democratic nominees were elected to
congress in this state. The republit
cans had out a nominee in every dis
trict, as follows:
First district, J. A. Noland, white
of Charleston against Congressman
Lever; second, Isaac Meyers, negro,
of Blackville against J. 0. Patterson
of Barnwell, the democratic nominee;
third, John W. Scott, white, of New

Aiken; fourth, J. D. Adams, white, of
Laurens against Congressman J. T.

Dispensary Constables in Richland
land Shoot Each Other-One Man
Originally From Newberry.
Colunbia, November io.-News
was reteived here last night of a
double killing at Eastover, in the
lower part of this county, the partici
pants being Dispensary Constables
R.L. Irby and S. Al Phillips. Accord
ing to the report received here the
two men quarreled over an overcoat
and both produced pistols, firing to
gether. Phillips was instantly killed
and Irby lived for about an hour.
Both were believed to be under the
influence of whiskey.
' As soon as Chief Constable Ham
met heard of the killing he notified
Coroner Green, who directed that the
bodies be taken charge of by Magis
trate Wertz, who lives in the neigh
borhood. The men had gone down
to Eastover on their regular round
of inspection of the district, and their
quarrel was purely a personal one, in
which the dispensary played no part.
The tragic part of the whole matter
is that S. A. Phillips came from East
over and was killed within a few rods
of the home where he was born, and
dies leaving a wife and two children.
He had been on the force about
eighteen months and was appointed
by the governor after being highly
recomm1ended by leading citizens of
R. L. Irby was from Laurens coun

ator Irby. He had been on the con,

stables in the state, and the best in
this district. He was married and
leaves a wife and one child. Chief
Hammet regrets the tragedy very
much, and said last night that if the
men were drinking it was in direct
violation -of the- ordej-s . iued the
foice. No arrangements have yet
been made as to the removal of the
Irby was originally from Newberry
county, having removed from New
berry to Laurens about 15 yea1rs ago.
MR. BRYAN EXPLAINS.
Democratic Party Sounded Partial
Retreat When It Should Have Or
dered a Charge.
Lincoln, Neb., November Io.-WiI
liam Jennings Bryan on Tuesday
night gave out an extended state
ment concerning Tuesday's election,
which is inteded to serve as his com
ment on the result, and as an answer
to reports connecting him with a
movement looking to the formation
of a new party. Mr. Bryan said he
would not attempt to deny all the
reports circulated as to his future
political action, but would let his
statement serve to explain his posi
tion. He says:
"The defeat of Judge Parker should
not be considered a personal one. He
did as well as he could under the cir
cumstances; he was the victim of un
favorable conditions and of a mistak
en party policy. He grew in populari
ty as the campaign progressed and
expressed himself more and more
strongly upon the trust question, but
could not overcome the heavy odds
against him. The so-called conserva
tive democrats charged the defeats of
18g6 and gono to the party's positionn
on the money question and insisted I
that a victory could be won by drop
ping the coinage question entirely.
"The reorganizers are in complete
control of the party, they planned the
campaign and carried it on according
to their own views, and the verdict
against their plan is a unanimous
one. Surely silver cannot be blamed
for this. defeat, for the campaign was
run on a gold basis. Ncither can the
defeat - be charged to emphatic con
demnation of the trusts, for the trusts
were not assailed as vigorously this ]
year as they were four years ago. It
is evident that the campaign did not
turn upon the question of imperial
ism, and it is not fair to consider the
result as a personal victory for the
president, although his administra
tion was the subject of criticism.
"The result was due to the fact that
the democratic party attempted to be
conservative in the presence of condi
tions which demand radical remedies.
It sounded a partial retreat when it
should have ordered a charge all
along the line. The democratic party
has nothing to gain by catering to
organized and predatory wealth. It
must not only do without such sup
port but it can strengthen itself by
inviting the open and emphatic op
position of these elements. The cam
paign just closed shows that it is as
inexpedient from the standpoint of
policy as it is wrong from the stand
point of principle to attempt any
conciliation oi the industrial and :f
nancial despots who are gradulally
getting control of all the avenues of
wealth. The democratic party, if it
hopes to win success, must take the
sides of the plain, common people."
The Mollohon mill shut down on
Wednesday afternoon to give the
operatives a chance to enjoy the show
and the carnival.
