COLUMBIA, September 1.-Columbia
is and has been for the last fourteen
hours in a state of great excitement.
Last night was the night on whluh the
candidates were to appear before the
people of this city to address them
upon political topics. A large crowd
assembled in the Court House to hear
the speakers which began about 8:80
i. m. Three of candidates had finish
ed their addresses, and a fourth was
just beginning to warm to his subject
when suddenly there was. heard an
ominous roar and rumbling, which
blanched the faces of the boldest, and
the crowd arose as one man and made
a 'mad, wild rush for the doors and
windows. Your correspondent was
sitting near the speaker's desk and
soon saw that there was no chance of
exist for him, and that he would have
to take his chances in the house. After
the first sensation of startled fear had
passed, he realized the cause of the
trouble, and was able to enjoy the
ludicrous side of the picture, and he
watched with linterest the wonderful
dipplayof selfishness which we all
display in hours of danger. He came
to the conclusion that when -an earth
quake strikes a crowd it is a . bad
place to look for those cool, calm indi
viduals front which heroes are made.
Men who had, to let them tell it, faced
death on a hundred fields -withuout the
quiver of an eyelid, were now trans
formed into lethders in the wildest
panie of fear.
The streets of the city were thronged
with fear-stricken women and men,
'who had left their houses in whatever
costume they may have been in at the
time of the shock, and few of them
possessed the hardihood to go to itheir
beds during the night. T1he rooms
and corridors of the hotels were .de
serted, and everyone seemed perfectly
willing to keep watch and. ward over
our littlq city dur,ing ' the hours of
The first shock, 'which occurred
Sabout 9.45, was-the most severe. An
other followed in about ten minutes,,a
little less severely, *a third followed a
little after one a. m., another. 'at 6,
a. in., and the last at 8.80,.a. m. The
streets present an unutually lively
r earance, and every one is discuss
Sthe great earthquakce of 1886.
Much anixiety is felt on behalf of
Charleston, and the wildest rumors
Sare afloat. It is reported that sixty
people were killed last night in that
city. Nothing definite is . known, as
the wires are down and this ruztnor is
based on a report from Sa'vannah. All
the Charleston trains are delayed, and
no mail will be received frOm Charles
f ton until late this afternoon.
