& Co.. met at the Carrigan Bros.'s store.
near St. Paul. on last Thu-sday, and
had an altercation, in which Levy wxas'
shot by Oppenheimer. The catuse of
the trouble. s wxe hear it. was about
the sale of certain goods to Carrigan
Bros. by the one. and the ctttting in the
price after the order was given by the:
other. This caused hot words to come
from Oppenheimer. which was resented
by Levy. The wottnded man went to
Charleston that night, and while he
is painfully wounded, no serious results
are looked for. We see from the News
and Courier that on a warrant sworn
out by MIrs. Levy, the wvife of the
wounded tman. Oppenheimer wasar
rested in Charleston.placed uder bond
for 8L.000. and a ptrelitminary examina
tion was to be held on MIonday before
Magistrate Moore. We do not see howx
a Charleston M1agistrate could hav e
anything to do with the case. as the
rime was committed beyond his juris
diction. It seems to us that Oppenhei
mer would have to be broutght to thisI
cotnty to be tried and bound over for
the court of General Sessions. on the
charge of assualt and battery within
tent to kill, and carrying a concealed
weapon. The wotunded man is regard
ded by his acqttaintances as a genteel:
man. one who attends str-ictly to his,
business, and is very courteous to those
with wxhom he comes in contact. He ts:
a man of exceedingly temperate habits.
and his getting into a personal combat
was not expected. It is the general
hope. that he will soon be tip and able
to be on the road again soon.
The followxing was taken from yester
dav's News and Courier:
Mr. Sam Oppenheimer wxas given a.
preliminary hearing yesterday before
Magistrate Mloore. The only evidence
brought out was atfidavit sworn out by:
a hack driver named MIeLeod before~
M1agistrate Dickson. of the county
where the shooting took place.
The man says that he drove M1r. Levy
to the store of Carrigan Bros.. just omut
side of Summerton. MIr. Oppenheimer'
was in the store. but came out and got
in his buggy when M1r. Levy got out of'
his. M1r. Levy wvent into the store and
when he camne out told Mr. Oppenheim

and tight him. as he (Levy) wxas titred of
being talked about. Witness wxas not

Tbe men wecre soon separated and i.

M1agistrate Mloore held that it was

Major Richardson Explains.
Editor The Manning Times:
I notice in the last i-tsue of THE
TIMES that certain individuals complain
of my withdrawing my tobacco bill in
troduced during the last session of the
Legislature. and wish some explanation
about the matter. This convinces me
that these are some who did not read
my card on this very subject. just after
I determined to withdraw the bill.
I hold that the people have a right
at all times to criticise the work of their
delegation. and although the reasons I
presented through the columns of THE
TIMES. I cant remember the issue,were
more complete than I can produce now.
till I take pleasure in again giving my
motives for the step I took.
The hill was introduced in deference
to the interests of the tobacco growers
of this county and State. and was in
tended to bring about a proper adjust
ment of the schedule of prices charged
by tobacco warehousemen in handling
leaf tobacco. If these were too high.
they should be lowered. and if the said
charges were irregular. a system should
be adopted to meet all requirements.
This was an important measure. and I
was sure it would be thoroughly sifted
when brought up in the House and pos
sibly from the amount of discussion pro
dued it would. as is often the ease. it
conditions like this. be lost without be
ing properly understood. or mutilated
to such an extent as to impair its useful
ness. I. therefore, requested the bill
be referred to a special committee. com
posed of two members from each of the
delegations representing those counties
where tobacco is grown. It can easily
be seen that those members would get
all the information they could on the
subject. and that their united verdict
would be of more value, than that of
four-fifths of the members who know
nothing of tobacco. and care little. as
the interests of their counties were not
involved. There were eight or nine
cotnties represented on this committee.
and every man. I am sure. had the good
of the peolie at heart.
I was chairman of the committee,
and Dr. Woods was the other commit
teeman from this county: but unfortun
ately the Doctor was prevented from
beinig present. as he was away at home
at the time. The subject was carefully
considered from every point of view.
and it must be borne in mind, that this
was done by a committee. all of whom
were specially interested in the matter
under discussion. whecre all friction
from heated arguments wvas avoided.
and a calm conclusion was arrived at.
Of course this committee had to rend
er in a report on this bill, and the re
pot must be favorable or unfavorable.
I knew the verdict would be an un
favotable report. and that it would be
useless for me to attempt to put a bill
through the House. opposed by every
single delegation in that body interested
in tobacco growing.I
To avoid any expense which would
have been useless to have incurred onI
the State, and other obvious reasons. I
requested the committee to withhold
an actior.. and that I would withdraw
the bill as I was satisfied it would have
no chance of passing. the overwhelm
ing majority of tobacco growers being
of one mind: that the present schedule
was the safest to keep in effect, for the
present at least.
I will only add that as I think it my
duty now. I thought it my duty then to
explain to the people of the county why
I withdrew the hill and did not wait at
day to forward a card for that putrpose.
