The two-story te'rca room dwelling house
on the jPrinces pond plantation, owned by
Mr. M . Levi, and occapied by Mr. C. L.
Wilson and family, was destroyed by fire
last Friday morning about 2 o'clock. The
fire is supposed to have originated in the
upper story from a rat igniting a match.
Mr. Wilson and h family made a narrow
escape with their lives, and did not save all
of their thing. The kitchen and aa out
house was af.o le.stroved. The dw:iing
house was a fLne oae. and when built cost
at least $4,(.00; it was insured for $1,000 in
the South Carolina Howe.
Never before in our recollection has so
much sympathy been shown and express'-d
tor parties charged with and convicted of
crime as was in the atse of John W. Hodge
and his wife Ilester, who were convicted of
unlawful intermarrying in the last term of
our court. John Ilodge is a white man of
no educ-tion. and about two vears ago he
married iLester Gibbs, a very light colored,
in fact almost white, woman. The woman
claims that a white woman is her grand
mother. and that her mother is white and
her father mixed with Indian blood. She'
comes from a family of mixed b'ooded
people who pride themselves on always
having enjoyed freedom and of not
getting into social contact with
any but white people. The couple were
reported to the grand jury, and in the re
cent term convicted. The man was sent to
the penitentiary for a term of one year, anti
the wonan was fined five hundred dollars,
but on the showing made to the judge that
she could not pay the fine and that she had
an infant of very tend'er age and ill, the
judge mercifully ordered her release. John
went to the penitentiary on Monday morn
ing and immediately after his departure a
petition was circulated among the citizens
of the town and country asking Executive
clemency. The petition was very strong
and when it was presented to the Governor
last Thursday he issued a pardon for both
the man and woman. Judge Norton and
acting Solicitor Levi both recommended

A Row in the Vance Family.
Nzw YonE, June 11.-An Asheville, N. C.,
special says :
The widow of Senator Zebulon B. Vance
ame to Asheville Wednesday and had the
body of the senator moved from the Vance
family plot in the cemetery. where it was
riginally buried, to a plot she had bought
the day the senator was buried. Charles
. Vance, a son of the senator and his pri
vate secretary during his life, arrived in
Asheville on Saturday and had the body
again disinterred and reburied in the famn
Young Vance declares that it was his
father's dying request that his body sh~ould
be buried in this plot, which the senator
al bought and beautified during his life,
and that his first wife's body (Young
Vance's mother) should be placed beside
him. Vance says that he is determined
that his father's wishes shall be obeyed if
the law has to be invoked in order to carry
them out. The plot of ground to whicn
ars. Vance had the senator's body removed
is the Hill Top, the most beautiful and
ommanding spot in the cemetery, and her
bject in placing the senator's body there
was the fitness of the site for the erection of
a great monment to the senator's memory
by the people of the State..
Mrs. Vance is a Catholic, and when it
was found that the senator was dying a
priest was about to performi the last sacra
ent when Chas. N. Vasnc interferedl.
Senator Vance wvas a Protestant, atal, it is
said, had requested that none of the rites
of the Catholic church be atllowedl over him.
Young Vance said he wvouild permit his
f ather's body to be removed to) theu plot se
ured by Mrs. Vance pronudedl his first
wife's body be placed beside the senator's,
but this Mlrs. Vance declined to agree to.
It is niot known wvhat steps Mrs. Vance will
take when she learns what has been done.

TILLMAN WINS THE DAY. T1
Prohibitionists Vote for the Dispensary th
The Manning Times has received many in
requests to republish the New York Times' In
account of the way Gov. Tillman handled wl
the Temperance convention on Staten Is- to
land. The Times is the only New York na
paper which did the square thing by the tic
Governor. The following is the story of an
that paper: th,
"I came here to contend that prohibition
does not prohibit, cannot prohibit and th,
never wi!l prohib.t. and to tell you that we le,
in South Carolina havo found a plan that Ia:
utterly destroys tue saloons." erl
Gov. B. R. Tiliman uttered this sentence inl
upon the platform in the auditorium at br
National Prohibition Park last night in the aff
presence of 2,000 men and women, 5,0 of ev
whom were delegates to the International pa
Temperance Congress, and included many th
of the leading Prohibition party leaders lay
and temperance workers of this country. of
The declaration was greeted with cries of wc
"No! No !" applause and hisses. w1
Never before had there been sucb a scene is
in the Prohibiti6n Park auditorium. Gov. I i
Tillman, striking in his appearance and in fa,
his utterances, faced the great audience of foi
liquor abolitionists with a half pint bottle TI
of South Caiolina dispensary whiskey in of
his hand, and for an hour combatted the as
theories dearest to the hearts of the prohi- pe
bitionists. The electric lights had gone v,
out just before lie was introduced, and a gii
score of kerosene lamps and lanterns but th,
dimly revealed the audience. ini
Gov. Tillman's declarations wele con- na
stantly greeted with a storm of dissenting to
voices and applause. When ie closed his of
speech he asked all who wented prohibition N
or nothing to raise their handt, and then kn
he asked those to vote who would favor a cu
State dispensary law if they could not have tho
prohibition. It was three to one for a dis- m,
pensary law, and with a parting "Oh, I vi<
have g* you!" the Governor left the plat- sa
At the outset Gov. Tillman told the audi- .
ence that he had come a long way in the ert
interest of right and tru.b. It had been go
said that he had backbone and he intended or
to show his hearers that he had, for he in- er
tended to say what he believed, but it lax
would not suit them. He said: be:
"I venture to say that I am the only pol- th<
itician here to-night. If any of you are its
politicians, you do not look like it and do
must be politicians out of a job. I am
Governor of a State and a candidate for chi
United States Senator, and I tell you I am wil
going o be elected. But to-night I am th<
going to controvert some of your dearest up
theories and arguments." thl
lie then explained the provisions of the wi
South Carolina dispensary law. The law co,
went into operation July 1, 1893, and was pa
declared unconstitutional on April 1. 1891, as
by the State Supreme Court. The State. otl
bought whiskey, put it into sealed packages. fri
sold it to county commissioners and they ]
in turn sold it to the sixty-six retail dis- of
pensaries. These were open only in the of
daytime, and sold whiskey in quantities of the
not less than half a pint. acl
Some one in the audience asked if whis- val
key was sold on Sundays, and Gov. Till- th,
man replied that there were no side doors re,
to the dispensaries. pri
In nine months. he said, the State had on
expended $475,000 and had sold $567,000 fiv
worth of whiskey, and had $98,000 worth se(
on hand. The dispensaries had received in<
$597,000, and had whiskey valued at $104.- ta3
000 on hand. This gave a profit- of over tui
$100,000 to the State and SS4,u00 to the hil
counties and towns. Under the license la,
system the counties had received $1,000 or
and the towns and cities 134,000 from 813 m(
saloons. Thus, with 66 dispensaiies the eri
income was greater than with 813 saloons. wi
In a period of six months before the dis- of
pensary law went into efiect there were 577 my
arrests for drunkenness and disorder, and thl
in the corresponding period last year 287 ro
arrests. Most 'of the drunkenness, the ize
Governor said, 'was from blind tiger whis- ta
key that the people got out of holes in the It
ground and their boot legs. B,
"The liquor revenue of the United w]
States." the Governor continued, "is 130,- ha
000000 a year. Are you willing to have ilv
that tax removed?" - t
Cries of "Yes ! Yes !" greeted the Gov- hi,
ernor's question, and be said: w
'-You did not think when you said that," au
be replied. "You do not want the tax re- ur
moved for it will put whiskey down to 25 if
cents a quart. You cannot get a thousand p
votes in the United States to remove it." . h
Shouts of "Yes ! You can get them in this th
hall !" came back to the Governor. The en
shouts, applause and hisses grew so loud Iar
that some one declared it a shamne that wt
Prohibitionists could not give any one oPa th
posed to them a respectful hearing, at
Gov. Tillmnan laughingly said it did not it
interrupt him. "Down our waiy," he con- ru
tined, "a fellow gets used to that sort of o
thing, and I have had rocks fired at me so
much that I have got a hide like a rhinoc- pt.
He said he was a practical sort of a pro- eq
hibitionibt, and could safeiy say he had not so
drank five gallons of whiskey in his life. va:
He was opposed to high license, because it of
put the business in the control of a few set
rich men, while, with low license the saloon an
keeper had to sell "low down, mean stuff' ar<
to na' ea living. w
"I believe you can make the liquor traffic th
respectable." he said. This brought an- it
othef storm and cries of "Never ! You can't kit
do it." in<
Gov. Tillman paused a fall minute, and shi
"Well ! You are set in your ways. You
are like some of the prohibitionists down
our way, who are opposing us and are cheek
by jowl with the saloon keepers. .Some of jx
your eminent D. D.'s I have he-ard with by

"The sweetest result of the dispensary
law," Gov. Tillman said, --ws that the act

branch, and the influence of the bar keeper hol
in polhtics was com pletely destroyed." ial
"Gov. Tillman had several times, when
stopped by dissenting cries, declared that
