Washington Cor. The State.
Washington. Sept. 24.-She South

in convention assembled, has unani
mously endor?ed Maj. Jas. Calvin
Hemphill for the United States sen

Press is divided into the Eastern, the
Western and the Southern divisions.
The Southern division was presided
over at the New York meeting by
Col. Stahlman of the Nashville Ban
"I take great pleasure in announc

Associated Press," began Col. Stahl
man soon after the meeting opened,
"that we have in our midst a man
who is worthy to occupy the seat of
Calhoun, of McDuffie and Preston.
What is the will of the assembly?"
"I move, sir," spoke up the one

recognition, gained the floor, "that

of the Charleston News and Courier,

said and that it be the great pleasure
of all newspapers belonging to the
Associated Press to promote the

and aringing cheer from every throat

said, are entitled to have their tick

New York Sun.
There was a curious mixup in a
royal telegram announcing the recent
engagement of Prince George of
Greece to the Princess Marie Bona

of Denmark is staying at Aarhus.
Prince George of Greece sent him a
telegram about the engagement. The
telegram was addressed to "Prince

Mr. Prins was natarally astonish

so hard piressed that he climbed a
tiee at the side of the Lake Erie rail
road tracks. The officers tried to in
duce him to come down, but he re
fused. The officers got an axe and
were starting to cut down the tree
when a freight train came along.
Froek dropped from the tree and
landed squarely on his feet on top of,
a box ear. He was stunned, but
managed to hold to the running board
and saved himself from falling off.
The train was running twenty
miles an hour.
Advices to Tipton officers to ar
rest him met with no response and
it is supposed he left the train before
it reached there.
