It is easy enougzh to be pleasant
While life Ilows by likft a song,
But the man worth vlile is the one who
When everything goes dead wrong.
For the test of the heart is trouleh,
And it always comes with the years,
And the smile'that is worth the praises of
Is the smile that shines through tears.
It is easy enough to be prudent
When nothing tempts you to stray,
When without or within no voice of sin
Is luring your soul away.
But it's only a negative virtue
Until it is tried by fire,
And the life that is worth the honor of
Is the one that resists desire.

The world's highway is cumbered to-day;
They make up the items of life.
But the virtue that conquers passion,
And the sorrow that hides in a smile.
It is these that are worth the homage of
For we find them but once in a while.

It was several years ago that Jens
Anderson deserted his wife and ceildren,
leaving them penniless in the worst
'quarter of Milton Avenue. The day
soon came when there was no food in
the house and starvation stared the in
mates in the face. Death was hovering
near when a knock came at the door
and Miss Gary entered. With the aid
of her associates she soon saw that there
was plenty to eat and to wear for the in
mates of the little home. The two girls
Mathilde and Mary were secured posi
tion in a tailor shop, and work was also
provided for the mother. Miss Gary
never lost sight of her charges, and three
weeks ago she noticed that the hard
work and long hours. were telling on
Mary Anderson. So she offered to
send her to a prety resort on Lake Wis
"I can't go," sobbed the girl, who
is only fifteen years of age, when she
called at Miss Gary's home a few days
later. The boss tailor will not allow
me to leave unless I find some one to
take my place , and I can't find anybody.'
Miss Gary thought a moment, then
said:"You go and enjoy voursell, and I
will see that your place is taken."
Mary left, and the next nw: rning as
the train was speeding the litt'e worker
westward, Miss Gary. clad '.i a plain
black gown, entered the tailr shop and
announced 'that she had couc in take
Mary Anderson's lace. All that div
she stitched way at the coarse cloth.,.nd
on every morning for twc . -eeks she was
at her self-appointed task. Leaving her
father's home at 6 in the morning she
did not return until 7, and it was not
until Mary Anderson returned that it
was learned that Judge Gary's daughter
had worked for two weeks in a tailor

1'istol and Stick.
GREENWooD, S. C.. Aug. 13.-The
county campaign still rages hotly.
Although the August convention is in
session. the interest imaifiiested ill it is not
so Ireat as in the county's alairs. The
people are certain as to the result ofthe
convention. but still have a spark of hope
for the county. There was a campaign
meeting at Ninety-Six Monday. at which
the majority of county candidates ad
dressed the people. The speeches were
said to be the same as elsewhere, and the
only deviation from the routine was au
unfortunate personal altercation, in
which the principals were Ilon. C. A. C.
Waller, candidate for the Senate, and. a
son of Hon. James N. King, candidate
for re-election to the Legislature. As
near as the cause of the altercation can
be learned, it is this: In a speech in the
county, Captain King spoke of Mr.
Waller as being bribed. To this Ir.
Waller gave Captain King the lie. Cap"
tain King explained that he had not
meant bribed but influenced. 'Mr. Wal
ter told him thatl he was uufortunate
in his use of words and it seemed as if
the affair should have ended there. but
young Kin-- took exception to Mr. Wal
laer's remark to his father. and sought
personal satisfaction. It is said that
young King drew a pistol and attempted
to shoot 'Mr. Waller, but the piece failed
to go oil 'Mr. Waller, it is said, used a
stick, but be''bre any damage was done
the parties were separted and the affair
ended. The affair was extremely unfor
unate. Mr.Waller. of course. expresses
himselfas regretting it greatlv Captain
King has not been seen by this correspon
dent. but he is a thoughtful man, and is
doubtless grieved himself at the occur
rence. There was a large crowd at the
meeing. Ninety-Six is an anti-Tillman

COLuMBIA. S. C., Aug. 15.--Tlhe
Augusta Chronicle of to-day, has the
following from its special correspondent
who caime over to rep~ort the conventio n.
I had a brief interveiw with Capt.
D. R. Tillman before lie left for home
at 6 o'clock this morning, and he did not
seem at all disturbed by thle turn things
had taken. When I asked him if he had
attended the all-night session, lie saui:
"No: sir; I was Iii my bed at tile hotel,
but when they told me about the wran
gle of the constitution. I did go up) there
and try to get thlem to let the matter go
over till the September convention, andl
compromise on a new executive com
mittee. There was no cause in the
world for the withidrawval of those dele
ations, but they wanted an excuse to
"What wvil be the result?"

vention stronger than ever, and in the
new elections will be certain to carry

delegates. It is all right, and they can't
beat me to save their lives.''
Rotten Borough States.
The wrong perpetrated upon the older
States by the admission of six new States
for party reasons is made clearer by the
result of the new census. Dakota was
credited with a population of 586,000
in 1888. when its admission was urged,
but now the two States made of it have
together but 518,542 inhabitants. Mon
tana, which before admission was credi
tedl with 175,000 inhbaitants, is now
found to have but 128,1633. The reason
why a reapportionment is not to be ex
peted from Congress at the present
session can be gatherer from the result
in New York. The State is found to
have 5,998.993 inhabitants. On the basis
of 64,('00.000 for the Union and 181,000
for a Congressional disariet, New York
would lose one memiber of Congress.
This loss would cause the entire delega
tion from that State to be elected on one
ticket. if the reapportionment were madie
before the next Coiigressional elections.
Thins elected they woule probably, all
be Democrats. IHence no reapportion

A SPLIT IN DE PARTY.
Bsoth Miller and Urayton Claim to have
The Democracy in the 7th Congres
siontl district will have a complete
walk-over in the coming Congressional
election if there is no change in the Re
publican programme before that time.
Both Miller and Bravton are candidates,
each of the'm claiming to be the regu
lar nominee of the Convention at Lin
Altogether the Lincolnville Conven
tion was a very complicated affair, and
it would take a dozen Philadelphia
lawyers to unravel the tangle. There
were gross irregularities in both nomi
nations. Miller secured his nomina
tion under a temporary organization,
and Brayton was nominated by a self
appointed Convention. Of one thing
there can be no doubt and that is that
the Convention was one of the most
disorderly ever held in the State.
The first business yesterday, third
day of the Lincoinville Convention,
was to knock down and drag out sever
al of the delegates. The fight was re
opened by the Berkeley delegation to
replace Ostendorff and Middleton by
Chairman Green, after listening to
the boisterous arguments for some
time, ruled the discussion out of order,
as the Convention had no jurisdiction
over the actions of delegates. He then,
upon motion, placed the Johnston dele
gates of Sumter on the roll. Then he
announced the name of Miller as candi
date for nomination and proceeded to
an election. The roll-call was dispensed
with and the result was announced as
being-Miller 21, Brayton 11, Murray 7.
This vote is accounted for as follows
Miller-Georgetown 4, Beaufort 6,
Colleton 3, Orangeburg 3, Williams
burg 3, and Ostendorff and Middleton,
of the Berkely delegation, making 21.
Brayton-Berkeley 9, Richland 2, to
Murray-Sumter 7, total 7.
After the chairman had announced
this vote he declared the Convention
adjourned, and the Miller men, having
accomplished their purpose, retired.
Then the Brayton men took charge.
They perfected a regular organization,
seated the Tuomey delegation from
Sumter. substituted two delegates on
the Berkeley ticket to replace Osten
dorff and Middleton and seated the
Brayton delegates *rom Colleton. R.
11. Jenkins was electeb chairman and
Brayton was declared the nominee of
this second convention, with a vote of
23. This total is accounted for as fol
lows: Richland 2. Sumter 7, Berkeley
10, Colleton 3, Charleston 1.
A committee on resolutions, consist
ing of E. D. Bennett, A. G. Spears and
R. K. Washington, was appointed, and
R. K. Washington, of the committee,
gave the Reporter the following resolu
tions as adopted by the Brayton Con
Resolved, That we denounce and con
demn the action of John H. Ostendorff
and Daniel T. Middleton. delegates from
Berkeley County, in voting contrary to
the explicit instructions of the conven
tion of said county, and unqualifiedly
endorse and approve the compliance of
the delegation with their instructions,
in excluding said Ostendorff and Mid
dleton therefrom and replacing them
by two others loyal to the trust reposed
by the people.
Resolved, That the action of Mr. Mil
ler's friends, influenced by him, in bolt
ing the regular convention of Colleton
County indicated the course to be pur
sued in this, and we call upon the
voters of the 7th Congressional district
to place the seal of their condemnation
upon said action by giving their undi
vided and hearty support to the regular
nominee of this convention.
Resolved, That the arbitrary, unjust
and unscrupulous course pursued by
the delegates who left this convention
call forth our unsparing condemnation
and denunciation; that by said course
they have proven themselves unworthy
the sacred trust and confidence reposed;
that they can find no justification for
their action, and must thereby forfeit
their clai ms as true representatives of
the interests of the people.
There can be no doubt of the fact
that the two opposing candidates will
fight each other to the bitter end. Eith

A Tragic Death.
ATLANTA. GA., August 1.-From
Highlands, N. C., coimes a horrible story
of Ihc tragic death of one of South Caroli
na's leading citizensVYanderhorst Lewis,
Lewis, his young wife and child have
been spending the summer at Highlands.
one of the most popular of the Carolina
resorts, they having a cottage there.
. Yesterday these three, with a Miss
Vanderhiorst, a neice of Mr. Lewis, were
walking near the edge of the precipice,
at Glenn Falls. about two miles from
Highland. Suddenly Lewis slipped
and, before the horrified relatives could
(d0 anything to prevent, fell over the
precipice, a distance of a hundred feet. to
the rocks belowv.
There was no way to get at him and
no help nearer than two miles. A
hundred feet below lay the husband and
father apparently lifeless.
Miss Vanderhorst ran at the top of
her speed to Highlands for assistance,
while the almost crazed wife stood by
the edge of the precipice watching over
the body of her dear one below.
For three hours she was compelled to
endure this suspense. Then help ar
rived and the men succeeded in getting
to Lewis. ie was not dead, and by hard
work, wvilling hands got him to the top
and then to his cottage home, two miles
off. There was little hope and withi
the day Lewis died. His body '.s
taken to his home in Charleston today.
No newvs of his terrible death was
received until today, as no telegraph
olice could beC reached at Highlands.
A Coffin Trust.
And now there is to be i coilin trust.
A vast combination called the National
Casket Company has been formed b~y
the three gr-eatest manufa urers of cas
kets in the country. Just what the ecm~
buc p~ortend~s to the nmanufactur-ers and
jobbers of tile great cities is not certain.
It is believed in sonme quarter-s that a
complete nmonopolv will be the final
result of the movement. The big firms
in tile combination already have sales
men stepping over the local jobbers'
heads, and they may establish offices in
every city when thle proper time arrives.
Even the grave, it seems, provides no
refuge from trusts. They preside over
the inaugzural howl of tile infant Amern

and ride with the remains of the centen

uay Proposes to GoriLan to Let the Force
Bill Drop for this session if the TarllY,
River and H arbor and Public Buildings
1ins1 are Passed.
WASINixTON, August 12.-The force
bill is about dead, so far as the present
session is concerned, and Congress may
adjourn early in Septenber if not
This result is said to have been reach
ed after a poll of the Republican mem
bers of the Senate under the lead and
direction of "Boss" Quay. .
The first intimation that a comprom
ise was contemplated occurred in the
Senate chamber this morning, when
Quay was seen to leave his seat on the
Republican side and go over to Senator
Gorman and engage the latter in con
versation. It is the first time since
these two men have been in the Senate
that they have been seen talking to
gether about the Capitol. It was ob
served that Quay did the talking while
Gorman listened attentively to what
was being said. Republicans and Dem
ocrats, as well as the spectators in the
galleries, watched the two political gel
erals as they sat with their heads close
ly together, evidently talking most
Later in the day, just before the Sen
ate adjourned, Senator Quay offered a
resolution to postpone the consideration
of the force bill until the next session.
His resolution also provides that the
river and harbor, public building and
tariff bills shall be disposed of during
the present session, the debate on the
tariff bill to terminate on or before the
The Republicans sat in their seats
andendeavored to look unconcerned,
while the Democrats could not disguise
their approval of the proposition. Sena
tor Cameron walked up to the clerk's
desk and read over the resolution his
colleague had offered, and then went
back to his seat. Senators Sherman,
Edmunds, Allison and the other Re
publican leaders did not relish the dose
apparently, but they made io objection.
Senator Hoar looked vexed and ex
claimed, with an insinuating snarl,
"Who offered that resolution?" "Quay,'
replied several Republicans in chorus.
It is said that this result was reached
yesterday when it was ascertained that
at least < ight or tei Republican Sena
tors declared that they would not re
main here after the tariff bill is out of
the way for the purpose of assisting in
the passage.of the force bill. Their con
stituents are not interested in that
measure, and they are anxious that an
adjournment shall be reached as soon as
Senator Quay, it is said, was authoriz
ed to make a bargain with Senator Gor
man that the tariff bill shall pass with
out unnecessary obstruction, provided
the force bill is abandoned for the pres
ent session. The understanding is that
the majority must by resolution in open
Senate declare that the force bill will
not be called up for consideration during
the present session.
Senator Quay has carried out his part
of the programme, and when the resolu
tion comes up for consideration to
morrow morning it remains to be seen
whether the majority will sanction -his
It must not be forgotten that Senators
Edmunds and Hoar have resolutions
pending to limit debate, and Senator
Blair has an amendment to the rules pro
viding for the previous question alsc
pending. The Democrats will not con
sent to the consideration of either of
these resolutions, but they will permit
the Quay proposition to be voted upon.
The minority are fully aware that their
opponents may be setting a political trap
for them to step into, hence they are or
the lookout for snags.
There is blood upon the face of the Re
publican moon to-night and Matthew
Stanley Quay is being rou.ndly denoun
ced for his action. Senators Hoar, Sher
man, Spooner, and other friends of the
force bill declare that the Quay resolu
tion does not retlect the views of~ the ma
jority of the Republican party in the Sen
ate, and deny that Quay was authorized
to make any deal with the Democrats
on the subj'ect. They also claim that
those Senators who are supposed to favor
the Quay resolution will not dare vote
for it if the party caucus decide against
it. It is further charged that Quay, be
cause of his hostility to the Administra
tioni, is seeking to get control of the sit
uationl with the aid of six or eight Re
publicans and the Democrats. The ad
vocates of the bill declare that it wil]
not do for Senator Quay and those Re
publicans who are inclined to follow his
leadership in this connectionl to talk
about postponing action until the next
sessioni of Congress, for a postponement
means the defeat of the measure, and
the Republican party throughout the
land will so understand it. They alsc
censure Quay for not attending the party
caucuses recently held to consider this
matter, and declare that he would be
the last member of the Senate selected
to take charge of such an important
On tile other hand Quay claims to have
the support of many of the ablest and
best men on his side of the chamber, and
while they might not vote against the
bill if it was before the Senate, they are
satisfied that no good can come of trying
to force its consideration at this lata
hour in the session. Among those who
are said to entertain this opinion are
Senators Wolcott and Teller, of Colo
rado; Paddock, of Nebraska; Plumb, of
Kansas; Mitchlell, of Oregon; Came-on,
of Pennsylvania; Washburn, of Mfinne
sota; and 31c3ilan and Stockbridge, ol
There is an Eastern Republican whc
talked quite freely with the representa
tive of thle News anid Courier on this
subject to night, and he said he could not
see any good reason for delaying all the
other public business in order to push
through the force bill. There is suffici
ent authority in the statute books now~
to control elections, besides the Farmer's
Alliance is doing tile Rep~ublican party
more service than will result from the
pssage of the proposed election law
ie wvill tote for the bill should it come
up for consideration, but lie believes it
will hurt the party in some of the North
ern States. ie prefers that the tarifi
bill, tile river and tihe harbor bill and
two or three other measures in which
his constituents are directly interested
shouldl be passed and Congress adjourn.
'The D)emocratic Senators are keeping
qiet, for they appreciate the advantage
of silence at this particular point. They
say it is a family quarrel within the Re
publican party and it would niot be court
eous for them to intrude. The Quay
resolutionl will p)robably cause a lively
discussion in the Senate to-morrow.

HOW THE LAST FIRE MAY COME.
A Terrible State of Affairs in the Vicin .ty
INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 14.-A Sentinel
special from Shelbyville says that much
excitement prevale over the recent gas
explosion. It is now discovered that
the whole neighborhood in the vicinity
of the young volcano Is sattuated with
natural gas. and the soil is full ofit. One
can run a crow bar into the ground at
any place and then light the gas, which
proceeds from the soil in various quan
tities. This would indicate that gas froim
-rgas well has found its way up, and in
many places fractures in the stones permit
it to escape. This bear out the theory
*that -as for some time has bech escaping
from the sides of gas wells and diffusing
itself in the sand and gravel below the
limestone. In Vanburen township,
twenty four miles north of the late erup
tion. where water wells have been sunk
tweLty to thirty feet, a few feet below
the superetructure of stone, gas from
wells three miles awa, has broken into
them, and people have abandoned the
use of the water, have cased the wells
and are now using the gas for fuel. The
whole township seems to be filled with
the combustible, and the inhabitants are
threatened with disaster. There is no
telling but the lighting of a match may
blow two or three township into smith
ereens. It is altogether probable that
the diffusion of gas into the soil more or
less affects tha growing crops.
A great question may yet be raised as
to the advisbility of sinking gas wells, or,
if they are sunk at all, whether other
methods should not be used to case and
confine the explosive material. Pockets
of gas are no doubt forming beneath the
limestone all over the region ot the gas
belt, and it is only a question of time
when it will break forth in terrific force.
It is - reported to-day -that boys were
roasting corn by gas jets produced by
sticking canes down in the soil a few
feet in the vicinity of the volcano. Such
being the case, the citizens will soon have
to abandon their homes and firesides.
The fissures of the ground blown to
atoms on Monday are now filling with
water, throug which gas occasionally
forces its way.

The Cotton Crop in August.
WASHINGTON,D.C.. August 9.-The
August cotton returns of the department
of agriculture show a slight advance in
the condition in the Carolinas. Tennes
see, Mississippi and Louisiana; a fall of 1
point in Georgia and Florida; of 2 in
Alabama. 4 in Arkansas and 7 in Texas.
The geneecl average is 89.5. It was 9I.
4 last month. The condition is, there
fore, still relatively high. The improve
ment in the Mississippi River bottom is
from the rapid growth of the late plant
ings of the submerged areas, Fair
stands, vigorous growth and abundant
fertilizing are generally reported. There
are fr'equent reference to droughts in
some instances of severol weeke' dura
tion followed by a sufficlentrainfall, and,
in some cases, by excessive rains, yet
there has been no general drought and
local estimates indicate small reductions.
One section of the countryis reported dry,
while another is too wet. Storms appear
to have been quIte local over a portion of
the cotton belt. Sandy soils have been
benefited by the ramns, which have dam
aged the bottoms and clay uplands.

man, who is to be the next. Governmr
of the Palmetto State, has written an t
alliance letter, which will create a
sensation. Ile is brief and pointed,
and in answer to the sub-treasnury
question firmly replies "no." The let
ter is written to an alliance committee
of Barnwell, composed of Messrs. W.
B. Rice, W. G. Simms and J. R. Smith. a
I have received your official letter, as
the organ of the Barnwell County
Farmers Alliance, requesting my views
as a candidate for Congress in the I
Second South Corolina District on cer
tain measures of proposed legislation
indicated in live interrogatories. .
Understanding from your conniuni
cation transmitting the interrogatories
that you do not want a long letter. but
only categorical replies, I shall be as
brief as possible to define my position
without equivocating, by merely quot- c
ing each interrogatory separately and
making absolute answers thereto.
Will you, uninfluenced by party
caucus or otherwise, support the fol
lowing propositions in the National
First-The abolition of the national
banks.and the substitution of legal ten
der treasury notes in lieu of national
bank notes issued in sufficient volume
to do the business of the country on a
Second-A freer, unlimited coinage
Third-That Congress issue fractional
paper currency in sufficient quantity
to facilitate exchange through the
Fourth-Do you approve, and will
you support the financial system known
as the "sub-Treasury plan" adopted by1
the National Alliance and Industrial
Union at St. Louis. December 7, 1889?)
Fifth-The enactment of such laws
as will prohibit the ownership of lands
Yes, but this has already been done
by an Act of March 3, 1887.
Permit me to add that for thirty
years I have had no industrial occupa
tion but cotton planting, which ought
to identify me vealously with the wel
fare of cotton planters, who not only
constitute the bulk of my constituents,
but have repeatedly honored me with
high commissions, and that if re-elected
to Congress I shall continue in the
future as I have done in the past to
support whatever I believe to be the
best for the interest of my class and
section. I myself am a member of the
Farmers' Alliance, and deeply sympa
thize with the purposes and efforts of
the organization to relieve the wide
spread and long continued agricultural
depression, but the South alone cannot
correct the fiscal and financial abuses
of the Federal government, which is
now and has been dominated by the
Eastern States ever since the war.
The West must co-operate with the
South before success can be achieved;1
let me take the liberty of advising the
Southern wing of the Alliance to move
a little more cautiously till it shall haye
been demonstrated that the Western
wing are in earnest about taking the
proposed new departure of abondoning
sectionalism and uniting with the
Soutn for a redress of mutual griev
ances. Very respecfully,

"They are readIy to be unprincipled

so much easier for some men to stoop,
to bow and to flatter than to be manly,
resolute and magnanimous. It requires 1
strength and courage to swim against the i
stream, while any dead fish can float I
with it." Does this apply to anybody
nowadays? Which man would you admire
most, one who agreed with the masses in
order to be popular or the one who always
stood by his conscientious convictions
of right, even at the sacrifice of popular
ityy Which man do you admire most,
the one whio agrees with you in order to
gain or retain your flavor, or that onet
who sticks firmly to wvhnt lie believes tot
be right even though lhe ditf'ers with you?t
Never ask nor encourge any one to de- i
viate from his real covictions in order to
gain your favor, Rather let him under
stand that you respect him for an honest
difference o1 opinion much more than
you would for a servile pandering to pop-I

on the latter. Try to convince men
that you are in the right, but falhng to do
