, n Thursday, 14th i nstant, about 7.:;0
s a. m., a terrible boiler explosioni
eurred it the saw mill of E. P. Mat hews.
about twelve miles froin Newberrv, Oi
Dr. W. M. Dorroli's place Four iijen
were instantly killed and two rmen
terribly mutilated and scalded, and a
colored boy slightly scalded.
Pickens '. Mathews, a young jan
about :21 years old, and the son of the
owner of the saw inill, imet with a nio-st
t awful fate. His linibs were blown
from his body, and his hands and feet t
- from his linibs, and scattered around
- in dil'erent directions at distances
I rangii from fifty to seventy-fiveyards.
The force of the explosion carried his
body twenty-five feet in theair, lodg
ing some portions of it in the trees. All
portions of his body were fouiid.
Tuip Ellison. colored, acting as
engineer, was killed instantly, being.
terribly inutilated and blown a dis
tance of fifty vards. Two other colored
nen, hilliary Chalmers and Carey
Davis, were killed outright, the skull
of one of theni beiig erushed and t he
Milton Abb, colored, was badly mu
tilated. When he recovered somewhat
from the shock, he got his leg froni
arouLn a tree where it was wrapped by
the terrible force, and crawled a few
feet. A piece of iron had been driven
through his thigh. He could not stand
amputation of his leg and died Thurs
Martin Davis, colored, was severely
scalded on his arms and chest. Ie is
reported as iniprovin1g.
Young Butler, the fifteen-year-old
negro boy, is the only person out of
seven who were running the saw mill
that can tell anything about the explo
sion. He was thrown into a brush
heap and badly shaken up. The negro
boy says the pump had gotten out of
fix, and the engine had been stopped
in order to get the pulpI) in order. Elli
son, the colored engineer, with two of
the colored ien, were around the fur
nace and Pickens Matlhews was kneel
- ing down at work on the pump, with
another of the colored men near him.
The pump was in front of the engine,
and near the saw, being supplied with
water from a siall stream alongside of
which the engine was placed.
t It is supposed that at this iomelit
the water had gotten very low in the
boiler and the crown-sheet. was very
hot, and that when the punps begai
to work and cold water to flow into the
boiler the explosion occurred.
Both shoes of Pickens Mathews were
found where he was kueeling, beside
the stream, blown from ::iis feet and a
sole ripped off one of tWe shoes by the
terrible force of the explosion.
The engine was fifteen horse power
and in first-.elass condition. The front
part of the boiler with the flues were
thrown a distance of ninety yards, and
the heater 20 yards, cutting the tops
of pine trees in their path. The bal
ance of the engine and boiler was scat
tered to the four winds. The ground
was swept as clean as a floor, and the
skids upon which the engine was
mounted carried away.
The explosion was distinctly heard
in Newberry by several persons. In
the neighborhood of the explosion
houses were shaken as if by an earth
Mr. E. P. Mathews and Mr. J. H.
Dorroh were on their way to the saw
mill and within three-quarters of a
mile of it when the boiler exploded.
They would have been perhaps in a
dangerous nearness but they were walk

buried in Rosemiont Cemetery, in New-V

No accident so terrible has ever hap- e~
pened in Newberry County. it hasa
cast a gloom of sadness over the comn
munity in which it occurred, andt everyF
heart deeply sympathizes with the

Four of the party went to Asheville,
found it a pleasant trip) indeed. Our -
train, (although one only had live cars
and two engines) "stalled" before get
ting to Saluda and we had to divide
the train and take part at a time. We h
found Saluda crowvded with pretty
women, passed Henderson ville after o
dark and reached Asheville about 1(0 p. It]
in. Asheville is a daisy, and is truly
on a big boonm. We attended sonie p
land sales and found that lots one mile i
from town sold at from $1~> to 640J
per front foot. The lots were generally b
530 feet front by 150 deep. I saw one
vacant lot on Patton Avenue that was

sally endiorsed by the CoUnty and Sub
Alliances o Lthe wIole coUntry, in the
COIiing Congressional election: aid we
wish to especially and strongly emipha
size the declaration in the platform,
"that we will only support such men
for Congre,s as will bind themselves to
sUppIrt those measures, uninfluenced
by party caiis." When a majority
ot, tile v(t erS have decided 441n a Ieasuire
at the polls,as a ia.1tter ol'si Inplej list ice
their wishes should not he defe-ated by
the arbitrary deCisionl ofa paKry caucus,
which relieves the iildividual (ongresis
man of personal responsibility to his
colstituents, and shields himi inl sup
portinlg lninIaIures that are detrimental
to the interess thtile 11e0pleC anld in not

we sUbimit that it interests of the
masse!s of our CitiZOenS a-Cre ab4)Ve those
of any paI ty; and we most earnestly
urge you to see to) it that the man you
vote for Conigres bIs hiiself to carry
out your wishvs.
Our Order spreads over the United
States, and is ,troi heeause it is non
partisan in polities. Tle Alliance of a
iepub)lie:. ate is as much bound as
we are to provide against the danger to
our demands arising from the influence
of a party cauous. Our national pre
sidem, Bro L. L. Polk, has conveyed
to us the -rd;al greetingof our Repub
lican brethren of the great Northwest,
with the assurance !!iat they are now
tralingi uv'er fOot the blooy shirt

desire that we join hl:,mds with them,
not Is paris:tis but as brothers, and
endeavor by initedl action Lnder the
grand priicinles of the Alliance to lift
the burden fritm oppressed agriculture.
We coimnend to our b,rethrei:thc wis
(lOm1 of our natio;ial leaders in calling
uponI us to comiit candidates for Coin
gress to suhipport Alliance deniands,
uninflunced by party cauctus.
The State Alliance and the Aliances
of the :;i district have endorsed the
National Alliance platform and the
sUb-treasury plati as their plattforli, and
the executive committee of your Dis
trict Alliance was directed to present
the samie to the candidates for Congress
from this district, and the candidates
wer.e reqtiested to give their views in
writing t) the chlairmian of the execu
hive coniinuittee of the District Alliance.
M1r. D). K. Norris is the only candidate
who has complied with the request and
pledged himself to stipport the de
mnands, and the District Alliance has
unlaimiously endorsed him as the Alhi
anice candidate for Congress, and every
true Allianc~e man is urged to give him
their hearty su pport, thereby carrying
out the ptrinies for which we have
bound ourselves together to fight for,
and it caninot be donie in any other
way. Before enidorising MIr. 1). K.
Norris tile Distriet Alliance conisidered

Serious objection is niade to the rosi
tiont of the oither candidates:
First. In their failure to pledge them
selves to stupport Alliance demands
uinilunenced bjy p)arty caucus.
Secondu. WXe desire to call attention of
the breth ren to the fact that candidates
have not been asked to sup)port either
of the sub-treasury bills nowv before
C:ongress. The Alliance demand is the
"sub-treasury plan" announced by the
Supr.eme Couneil at St. Louis.
Candidates who fail to give a positive
pledge to support this plan without
muodification cainnot be considered as
endorsing the Alliance demand.
Congressmen have been invited to
make any imphrovement up)on the bills
before Congresseconsistent withl the sue
treasury plan, but candidates for Con-I
gress have not beeni invited to consider
thiem. And tll propositions made by
thiem to miodify the bills are useless so
far as t he A llian ce denimnl is coniened.
We earnestly urge all menmbers of
