EXPLAINS THE DELIVERY
OF THE SUNDAY MAILS i
Postmaster General Clears l'p Misapprehension
Washington, Aug. 28.?Postmaster
General Hitchock tonJgtt issued the
"There appears to be some misapprehension
ae regards the provision
in the postal bill relating to the delivery
of mail on Sunday's. This provision
does not require the closing of
postoffices on Sundays, which would
be quite impossible owing to the fact
that the transit mail has to be sorted
and also the mail collected in cities
for dispatch to other destinations.
To stop the movement of this mail
would mean a serious clogging of the
whole system of mail transportation
and consequent inconvenience to the

law will not affect this mail. It will j
be delivered as promptly as hitherto. 1
Mail received up to midnight on Saturday
for lock boxes will be distributed
to the boxes and will be available
to box holders on Sunday as
"There is at present no street delivery
of mail by letter carriers on
Sundav and therefore the law makes
no change in this regard. In short
the only mail that will be accepted
under a reasonable construction of
the new law is that received at the
postoffices on Sunday and hitherto
sorted on that day for distribution to j
"As the purpose of the law, whicii j
was clearly enacted in the interest of j
employes, is to reduce as far as practicable
the amount of Sunday labor,
the work of distributing Sunday mail
to lock boxes will be limited to certain
classes of mail that can not be held
until Monday morning without serious
inconveniences to the addressee. This
mail will include that for newspapers
and hotel guests. The latter is peculiarly
transient in character and
should not be delayed. This mail like
"the special delivery mail, will be sorted
out at the offices of dispatch and on
the railway mail trains in order to
simplify the work of distributing it
in the postoffices on Sunday.
"As practically all business houses j
are now closed on Sunday they do i
not object to the plan, which has j
been in force for a year, of holding j
their mail until Monday morning,j
realizing the benefit thus conferred!

CHARLESTON LIVELY '
DAY OF ELECTION
MILITIA WAS READY, KIT WAS
Many Fiprhts Occurred, But Sobody
Was Seriously Hurt?Story of Exciting
The News and Courier carries the
following in regard to election day in
The most remarkable feature of the
day was the fact that at the request
of the leaders on the Martin-LegareDunkin-Mansfield
side the militia of j
the city were quietly mobilized at!
their armories towards dark prepared
to extend to the executive committee
such protection as the committee
might need in order to count the votes
cast during the primary. Arrangements
were made to get in touch with
the governor so that at a moment's 1
notice the militia could be ordered out I
under arms. These ste-ps were deemed
necessary by the Martin-Legare :
leaders on the ground that the events !
of the day had shown that the police
could not be relied upon to protect
the executive committee and enable it
to make a fair count.
The day was marked by intense ex- :
citement at some of the polls and by
many fights, although no one was seriously
hurt. Ward 3, with its polling;
precincts sjde by side on Meeting j
street below Market, was the storm
centre throughout the day.
AVnrH 2 th#> Sforni fVntrp
It was at Ward 3 that most of the
incidents that seemed to threaten serious
trouble occurred. Of these the
one that caused greatest comment was j
a clash between Mayor Grace and Mr. i
Albert Orth, the proprietor of the
Deutsche Zeitung, in which, according
to the testimony of those who said
they were eye-witnesses, the mayor
struck Mr. Orth, whose paper has
been opposing very actively the candidacy
of Mr. Perry. A threatening
crowd followed Mr. Orth down the :
street and he took refuge in a nearby
store. Later he requested that he be
extended protection in . order that he
might cast his ballot, and Chairman j
Conner, of the executive committee,'
offered to escort him to the polling
place and see that violence was not
done him. Mr. Orth, however, at the
earnest entreaty of a friend who begged
him for his wife's sake not to expose
himself to great danger, later de- i
cided not to go to the polls and to
forfeit his vote. The supporters of j
Mr. Perry were greatly in the ^majority !
at the Ward 3 polling place. Much :
cursing was indulged in, several
fights occurred and several arrests
Police E.ieVt Committeeman.
It was at Ward 3, Club 2, in the afternoon
that Mr. William H. Grimball,
a member of the county executive
committee, who had been stationed at!
this precinct by Chairman Conner, of j
the committee, was forcibly ejected ;
from the polling place by three police- i
men. Mr. Grimball was stationed at j
the poll at a time when word had been !
received by the .executive committee j
that unfair methods were being prac- !
ticed and that the police were not
making any move to prevent it. His
ejection from the poll Caused the !
greatest excitement at the time. He j
protested with vehemence against !
such treatment and hot words passed, j
The policemen, however, refused to '
let him re-enter the polling place.
State Committeeman Arrested.
It was at Ward 3 that earlier in the i
aay uapt. u-eorge swan, member of ;
the State executive committee from j
Charleston county, was arrested by a j
policeman and sent to the station
house on the charge of intimidating
a voter. This affair also caused considerable
excitement and Capt. Swan i
later expressed the greatest indigna- j
fion nt thp \vnV in T\"hir>h hp Koan I
treated and stated that he would car- j
ry the matter into the court in order i
to obtain redress for the indignity. |
Capt. Swan gave the following state- '
raent to the News and Courier regarding

place. A-fisherman whom I
knew, John Olsen, captain of the
smack Peerless, was standing nearby.
I said, 'John, how's the fishing?' He
replied, 'Cap'n, we're not doing much.'
I said to him, 'John, have you voted?'
He said 'no, that he had plenty of
time.' I said, 'How are you on the
coroner's race? He said, 'I'm for
Johnny Mansfield.' I then walked over
to Mansfield and said, 'Johnny, there's

He'll vote for you.' With that Policeman

walked across the street with him,
laughing. Then I saw he was in
earnest. When 1 foun<| 1 was arrested,
I askeil him to let me go up
in the car or in r hack instead of in
the patrol wagon. He said no. that
he was going to make an example of
me, that he had me 011 the list and
that he was going to give Cole Blease
a chance to put up that $500 for the

street and Mr. Grace came along in an
automobile and I called him out and
he came and said: 'Cap'n, what's the
matter? I said, 'Let the officer state
the charge,' and he said he had arrested
me for intimidating a voter.
Grace says, 'Capn', what have you got
to say?' and I stated the case exactly
and he said, 'I'm very sorry, I can't
do anything for you,' and rode off. I
was then walked up Meeting to Pinckney
street to wait for the patrol wag
on, and was taken to the station
house. The same charges were preferred
against me by the officer in the
wagon. Lieut. Dunn asked for my
side of the question and I stated what
I have already stated. Lieut. Dunn
asked the officer if there had been j
any disturbance or fight and then
said to me: 'All right, Cap'n, you can
go out.' or words to that effect.
"I wish to say that if there is any
law which can give me redress for
this indignity I propose to use it to
Capt. Swan is a member of the State
executive committee from "Charleston
county. He was manager of the Pilot's
association for twenty-one years and
is now a director. He also holds several
commissions from the government.
A dozen or so arrests were made by
the police during the day. In many
cases the persons arrested were not
held because no Drosecutor aDoeared
While there was considerable excite.ment
in many parts of the town
the ugliest spirit was shown in Ward
3, though there were also times in
Ward 5, when things looked threatening.
So far as is known no one was seriously
hurt in any of the fights which
occurred aunng tnc -ay. ao damage
to property last 'night was reported,
nor did a great crowd gather in front
of the Hibernian hall, where the executive
committee was engaged in
counting the votes, as was the case
in the mayoralty race last year, and
as had been feared would be the case
on this occasion also. Some damage,
however, was done to the residences
of Proprietor Orth and Editor Wierse,
of the Deutsche Zeitung, by a crowd
of Perry supporters on Monday night.
In the late afternoon the' report
spread about and was soon found to be
a fact that the militia were being
quietly mobilized at their several armories.

the occasion arise. In the meantime
word was passed by the officers of the
different commands to their men to
assemble quietly at their armories. By
nightfall a large number of militia
men were gathered in the different
armories. Had there been signs of
serious disorder at the Hibernian hall
last night, the citizens soldiery of the
city was in readiness to turn out and
afford the executive committee such
protection as it needed.
A Strenuous Day.
The day was a strenuous one for
the members of the executive committee.
They were for the most part stationed
at various polling pipces in the
city, though one member was alwavs

passing here and there about town
in an automobile wherever his presence
seemed to be required. It was
a busy day also for the candidates

throughout has takon a very prominent
part in Mr. Perry s campaign.
