Senator Hampton arrived here yes
terday. En route here he stopped at Bal
timore and aaid to a reporter regarding
theAUianoe: "I am out of politics, and
"Intend for the future to keep In the back-
abound. The Farmers' Alliance is rapid
ly disintegrating in the south, and with
in the next four years it vill completely
disappear, to live only in the memory "of
those who have benefited by the upheaval.
This will be the case not only in South
Carolina, but throughout the whole south.
The people there are rapidly awakening
to the absurdity of the demands that the
organisation has promulgated, and are
gradually dropping off and forswearing
nil allegiance to the Alliance.
Founded oa Itomagogaery.
"In my own state the governor, who
was elected by the sentiment that secured
ay defeat for re-election to the senate,
has already broken aay in a great
measure from the Alliance measures and
Is catering in his administration of the
affairs of the state to the conservative and
better thinking element. The uprising
, " was founded on demagoguery and fanatio
f Ism and therefore can not have a long ex-
istence. Moreover, the history of this
i country has shown that no secret politi-
cal organization can live long or retain
any lasting hold on the public We are
' too conservative a peonle and too fair
minded in our judgment of right and
wrong in popular governmeo t to permit
" any sway by secret societies.
; Not Worthy of Discussion.
"In my opinion it is folly for any one In
this coantry to enter into a controversy
with a Farmers' Alliance adherent on the
sub treasury plan. The measure is so pal
' " pably wrong on its face as to make it ab
surd to all who have the prosperity and
welfare of the country at heart. It can
sever become a law until passed by con
gress, and its absurdity will prevent this,
bo matter how much demagogues may
urge its enactment. This feature of the
Alliance has never been fully accepted in
the south, and I have too much confidence
in our people to think that it ever
The Kext Speakership.
Mr. Hampton had something to say of
the speakership of the next house. "If I
had the decision of this matter I would
not elect one of the three southern candi
dates, but would take some northern or
western representative for the place. I
think in the last general election we suf
fered as much from Mr. Carlisle appoint
ing so many southern men as chairmen of
leading cammittees as from any other
cause. They are as capable, as painstak
t Ing, and as efficient as any he could have
ahosen, but in the north political capital
was made of bis course in this direction."
He also said that the south and west were
for Cleveland, and that if the Democrats
win in New York nothing can prevent
him from being the nominee of the Dem
ocracy. Blaine's Position Once More Noted.
A gentleman who recently had a talk
with Mr. Maoley at Augusta, Me., quotes
that gentleman as saying the Maine dele
gation would not present the name of Mr.
Blaine as a candidate before the Repub
lican national convention, Mr. Blaine
having expressed a desire that the Maine
delegation should not make him a candi
date; and that if, however, his name were
presented by some other delegation find
he were nominated he would not decline.
MOVEMENT OF GEORGIA FARMERS.
One Body Issues a Declaration of Inde
pendence. ATtAKTA, Oa, Oct. 20 The Georgia
farmers are beginning to desert the Dem
ocratic party. The Alliance of Clayton,
the adjoining county to Fulton, in which
the capital city is located, has cut adrift
fiorn Democracy and pinned its faith to
the People's party. The members" have
declared that "sinco our leaders are try
ing to keep the Alliance in the Demo
cra lc party to onr ruin, we declare our
selves independent of old parlies, and
pledge our undivided support to the Peo
Are For Peek and Ocala.
This is regarded as an initial movement
that shows the determination of the
Georgia Alliance to follow the leadership
of Colonel Peek, who is in favor of the
Ocala platform and nothing else, rather
than to dally with the methods of Colonel
Livingston, who says be is a Democrat.
Captain Evan P. Howell, editor-in-chief
of The Constitution, is announced as a
candidate for governor at the next elec
tion. ' Governor Northern will also be a
candidate for re-election.

mittee, said yesterdsy that he favored

Give Bins Mick Trouble.
Ctncisnati, Oct. 80. John B. Rans--
ley, the confectioner reported missing in
New York, has been fonnd at his mother's
residence in this city. His mother saya
that he has been under hypnotic influence
ever since his marriage with Miss Edith
Speer. When called npon by a reporter
yesterday Ransley would say nothing to
the questions asked bim except "I am
tied np " When asked in what manner he
was "tied up," he did not respond. He
declined even to name his a torneys, ad
mining that he had not consulted with
them as yet.
History of the Case.
There are enrious . features about this
case. Some months ago when Speer's
mother and sisters discovered that he was
engaged to Miss S peers, they had him put
in a lunatic asylum. His nance came
here from New York and after a legal
fight obtained bis release. Then they
were married, but the opposition of the
mother and sisters did not cease, and he
turned over ta them an interest in his
business. This did not stop the trouble
and a few days ago Ransley disappeared
from his home in New York and his wife
has been searching for him ever since.

Contribute to the Assistance of the lei
tltute In Spain Kxciling Amusement
Which Raised 23,000 for Charity.
City of Mexico. Oct. 20 The revival
of bullfighting in the City of Mexico Sun
day was in the name of charity. A com
mittee of ladies of this capital, with Mr?.
Diaz, the wife of the president, at tbeir
head, organized it for the benefit of the
sufferers from the floods in Suiu. It
was one of the greatest spectacles of the
Mexican national sport ever witnessed on
the North American continent. The
time set was 2:30 in the afternoon. For
an hour previous San Francisco street,
the Avinida Jaarae and tbe Paseo de la
Reforms, presented a most auimated
scene. Carriages of every degree from
the landaus of ministers and senators,
with cockades and liveries, down to tbe
commonest hacks jostled together on
their way to the bullfight.
Witnessed by 12,000 Persons.
A stream of pedestrians bent on tbe
same errand filled the sidewalks, while
from balconies and hou-e tops tnousands
watched tbe passing throng. At the
Plaza de Toros the paople came in from
every direction, but so perfect were thi
police arrangements that no difficulty or
disorder was encountered, and the human
tide poured into tbe great amphitheatre
without delay or personal discomfort. It is
estimated that 12,000 people were within
the enclosure. Two military bnuds were
present and four companies of infantry
served to insure good order. A long row
of boxes intended for President Disz and
his party, the committee of ladies and
their friends and the members of tbe
Spanish casino were decorated elaborately
with bunting, the Spanish flag and palm
Arrival ef President Dlas.
Presently a roll from the drums, a flour
ish of trumpets, followed by the national
hymn by the band stationed outside the
amphitheatre, announced tbe arrival of
tbe president of the republic. His ap
pearance in his box was the signal for en
thusiastic cheers on the part of the spec
tators, salutes by the soldiers, and a repe
tition of the Natiou.il hymn by the band
inside tbe inc'osure. The popular ap
plause was genuine and universal. Hun
dreds of miniature Spanish and Mexican
flags were unfurled ud waved bv the
people present during the posting of the
Mexican ensign in front of the presiden
tial box. The president was evidently in
excelleut health and spirits, und ad.
vanuing to the front of the box acknowl
edged the cordial popular receptiou. Ac
companying the president were Mr. Diaz,
tbe committee of ladies and a brilliant
company consisting of the very cream of
The Greatest Bullfight for Yeans '
Nine bulls of celebrated breed were
killed amid the bravos of the spectators.
Tbe animals had been trained for the oc
casion, and msny of the matadors had
narrow escapes. President Diaz and
party left the ring during the killing of
the eighth bull. The banderillos that hud
been stuck into the bulls were sold after
the fight by peddlers at extravagant
prices. This was one of the greatest
fights that Mexico has seen for years, and
the amount received for admission fees is
supposed to reach :i5.0O0 The great
crowd was demonstrative, but gocd
natured and orderly.

with a reporter Mr. Small was not in
clined to enter into tbe details of tbe
transaction upon which his arrest was
based, but affirmed that he was not guilty
of any wrong-doing, and that there was
nothing on his heart that would not bear

Small is of a criminal character, whereas
it is a civil suit."
