Encounter With New ,jersey -Congress
inn . Fout i District Congressmamn
Easily ]teats Opponent who Starts
iace Question Argument.
The Washington correspondent of
the 'Columbia State sends that news
paper the following story:
Washington, May 10. -News of
how a menber of the South Carolina
delegation in the house, Samuel J.
Nicholls of Spartanburg, severely
chastised a New Jersey member In a
Washington hotel dining room last
night for remarks which the latter
made concerning the white people of
the south and their treatment of the
negro, leaked out here today, al
though efforts were made to keep the
matter quiet. That the Spartanburg
er camne out best in the fistic encoun
ter is quite apparent.
. Last night Mr. Nicholls was sitting
in the dining room of a hotel when
the New Jersey congressman came in
andl(] sat by him. In a few minutes the
latter's secretary also came in and
joined the party. ''hie New .Jersey
man brought up the color questIon and
told Mr. Nicholls that the people of
the south did not understand the ne
gro and a good deal more along the
samve line, none of which was compli
mlentary to the white people. He also
said that his father was an abolition
ist and that he was one, too.
At this point the Fourth district
congressman protested that lie did
not care to discuss the negro <ques
tion, the matter of who was or who
was not an abolitionist or anything
about the subject. The New Jersey
man continued his insulting remarks.
Then quick as lightnlg out. went
r. Nicholls' left list, straight from
the shoulder, landing stitarlely oin Ile
New .Jersey man's jaw for a good
uliperelti. The New .lersey lIman ill
been told what the South ('aroliiian
thought of himiself andl his ancesors.
"If you repeat that I will consider
that I have beens insuilte d." said the
New .liersey inan. .\ir. Nicholls dill
not answer but sent another swinging
blow into New .lersevy's lysiogiomly
that knocked hime dowli good and
hard and there was no attempt to
retaliate, although (lie New .Jersey
man's secretary was standing by.
A clerk In the hotel, who at. first
thought he would interfere, changed
his mind when he saw the outl
Carolina blow landing on the New
.Jersey face and instead ran out of
the hotel door, making for home, so
those around said, and only returned
at the earnest request of the proprie
tor when assured that no harm would
come to him.
When the 'tory leaked out here to
day Mr. Nicholls was asked for a
statement concerning the matter and
was reluctant to make it. public.
Hlowever, he said that if all the facts
wore given lie had no objection to
their publication. lie stated that he
regretted the matter very much but
that when the New .Iersey nan had
cast. aspersions on the sol tl I here
was nothing to do but '"slap his lace'"

Mr. Blease arrived in Greenville
Tuesday afternoon to attend the an

the Odd Fellows. He will remain in

Governor Blease said lie thought
without doubt the main fight of the
campaign would be between him and
Governor Manning. "r. Manning
has the support of a well-defined fac

Carolina, and I have the support of
the other well-defined faction," he
said. "Mr. Cooper's ciardidacy wil not
hurt me in the least, and I rather feel
that it will help Inc."
