circuit, composed of the counties of
Newberry. Saluda, Abbeville, Green
wood and Laurens. having defeated

out the circuit was light.
In Newberry county only 32 boxes
out of 44 have ben heard from, and
the figures from the other counties
in the circuit are as yet incomplete.
On account of the very light vote
which was polled, however, the vote
yet to be heard from is not large, and
the figures will not be materially,
The Herald and News figures late
yesterday afternoon, which were the
latest that could be,obtained from the
various county seats throughout the

The Ninth Circuit.
The indications yesterday were that
there would have to be another pri
mary ior the nomination of a solici
tor for the ninth circuit. In the sec
ond primary it was thought that
Messrs. XV. St. Julien Jervey and W.
Turner Logan, of Charleston. would
probably be the entries in the race,
though it was thought possible that a
heavy battlot from points not heard
from might swell Mr. J. G. Padgett's
total. The latest returns gave Logan
1.529. Jervey i.io6 and Padgett 902.
House of Representatives.
In the race for the house of repre
sentatives from Charleston county, to
fill the vacancy ca ;ed by the resig
nation of Representative Baker, Mr.
A. Vander Horst was elected on the
first ballot, defeating his two oppo
ments, James Larisey and Vincent
Chicco, by a decisive majority.
ACROSS THE SALUDA.
Saluda County's Greatest Need a
Railroa. -Nice Churches and
Country School Houses.
Ruff, Saluda County, S. C. March
23.-Sometimes, when the waters of
Saluda river are within their banks,
and we can cross at any time in the
boat. we feel very near the beautiful
city of Newberry. but when the -shin
ing big sea waters' cover the low
lands and we must go seven miles
out of the way to the steel bridge, we
feel that we are far off. No matter
how great the obstacles all go to
Newberry. Saluda has as fair skies
and as green grass, as beautiful birds
and flowers. her men as brave and
her maidens as fair, as her sister coun
ties, but she has no railroad, and that
is the excuse for leaving our county
seat and going to another for sup
plies. Nine men in every ten go to
Newberry for what they eat and wear.
Part of what they drink they get at
ome, as we have a dispensary. No
railroad or bridge, however, is need
ed to go there.
Saluda county is noted for its nice
churches and neat country school
houses. Several schools have libra
ries and several others are raising
money for that purpose. We have
wo good county papers, which are
iberally patronized. Saluda has no
club rooms, but has a "bone yard."
The farmers are busy hauling ferti
izers and now is one time they wish
for some other means of transporta
tion than mules and wagons.
Mr. WVilliam B3rooks, a progressive
armer and who runs a fine ginnery,
grist and saw mill, visited Newberry
this week. Messrs. Ruff and Riley
ave nice country stores near and
ake weely trips over to Newberry
Saluda county 'has had a siege of
neumonia and grip, which has kept
our doctors busy. Several cases of
easles are reported.
Saluda county must be a very quiet
place, as it can not start a chain gang
Hired convicts from the penitentiary
o the road work.
Mr. Davis and a prominent Phila
delphia physician went to New Eng
land one autumn to shoot over the
preserves of a very rich Bostonian.
The editor had good luck with the
birds, but the doctor was unable to
make a decent shot.
The keeper was a Scot and the poor
marksmanship of the physician an
gered him. At every miss he would
nort and grunt.
"Ye're doin' puirly," he would say,
~Man, ye're doin' puirly."
"Indeed, I am doing poorly," cried
the physician, after an inexcusable
miss. "What's the matter with the
birds? I can't kill one of them."

THE APPROACH OF PEACE.
The Peace Party in Russia Greatly
Encouraged in the Last
St. Petersburg, March 23.-The
party within the government which
is urging the emperor to indicate to
Japan Russia's willingness to end the
war if a reasonable basis can be
reached, as related in these dispatch
es on March 20, has been greatly en
couraged the last few days, and an
actual pacific proposal may be just
ahead. The subject has occupied
much of the attention of the confer
ences at Tsarskoe-Selo. Certain grand
dukes, supported by Gen. Sakharoff,
the minister of war, Admiral Avellan,
the head of the admiralty, and what
is known as the war party, are still
bitterly opposed to the idea of peace
under present circumstances; but
with the exception of the ministers
of war and marine the emperor's
ministers, backed by M. Witte, favor
this course, and the convincing argu
ments they offer are telling. French
Iinfluences in the same direction are
now being supported by German op
inion. The rumor noted by the As
sociated Press last week that Emper
or William had tendered his good
offices now seems to be confirmed.
The Associated Press is now in a po
sition to assert, however, that if Em
peror Nicholas decides to approach
Japan, it wvill be through France, and
tha negotiations will be conducted
either between M. Delcasse, the
French foreign minister, and Dr.
Montono, the Japanese minister at
Paris, or M. H-armand, the French
minister to Japan, and Count Katsur
ra, the Japanese premier at Tokio.
In the conferences concerning the
question whether Russia should now
indicate her willingness for peace all
agreed, firstly, that preparations .to
continue the wvar shall not be relaxed,
and secondly, to reject humiliating
terms. There would probably be two
Ipoints on which Russia would be
found implacable, namely, cession of
territory, and indemnity, to neither of
which, it is said, would Emperor
Nicholas ever agiee. It is pointed
out, however, that if Japan seriously
desires enduring peace on collateral
questions, Russia might be ready to
offer liberal compensatory considera
