THE DEMOCRACY WINS.
THE TILLMAN TICKET ELECTED BY
AT LEAST 35.000 3AJORITY-1
Six Democratic Congressmen Certainly
Elected-Some Doubt as to Effiott.
Democrat-A Quiet Election
and Light Vote.
The election is over. The regular
Democratic ticket is successful. The
majority we trust is large enough to
teach those who would bolt their party
nominations that no such action will
be iudorsed by the white men and
Democrats of this State. And on the
other hand we trust it is small enough
to impress upon the minds of those
who are successful, that the minority
should be treated with proper regard
and that it has rights that should be
respected. The Democratic party in
South Carolina has been given a severe
test and put through a terrible ordeal
this year. It will not stand many
more such strains. But the regular
ticket is successful and for this we are
truely thankful. We voted the party
ticket and did all in our power after
its nomination for its success. From
our point of view we concieved this to
be our duty, and we feel that we have
only discharged our simple duty.
Others saw diferently and did other
wise. We have no quarrel with them.
We want now to see a reunited party,
all working harmoniously together for
the common good. Let 'il good men
apply themselves diligently to accom
push this result.
We give as full returns as we could
obtain yesterday of the result in this
State. The officiai count will not be
reached until next week.
The election was quiet and orderly
throuahout the State ind for this we
shouia also be thankful.
The vote was light and it would
seem not many negroes voted.
In Newberry County the vote was
light. At Newberry only 10 negroes
voted at the State box and about the
same number at the Federal box. Very
little interest was manifested. Most of
those voting at the State box only voted
for governor and Lieutenant Governor.
We give below the vote forGovernor and
for Congressman for this County in de
tail with the exception of Glymphville,
from which box we had received no
return yesterday. The vote there will
not exceed 60 almost solid for the regu
lar nominess. Geo. Johnstone is elect
ed to Congress from this District by a
large majority. Shell, Tillman Hemp
bill, Brawley and Stackhouse are also
elected and possibiy Elliott giving us
six Demecratic Congressmen and possi
Good news for the Democrats has
also been received from other States.
The next Congress will be Democratic.
We trust now that everything will
settle down to its normal condition
and we can get down to business
A QUIET ELECTION.
COLUMIBIA, S. C., November 4.-2 P.
M.-Reports in from very few counties
indicate a small vote, and a nmajoritv
up to 12 in. favors Tillmian for Gov
ernor and Democratic nominees for
Congress. At several precincts through
out the State already heard from ballot
boxes were stolen and no election held.
These polls were conspicuous as be
ing in favor of Haskell, who opposes
Tillmnan for Governor. The negroes
are voting very slimly. It seems that
they are afraid to vote, but those voting
favor Haskell for Governor and the
regular Republican nominees for Con
4 p. m.-Comnparatively few counties
have been heard from, indications so
far give Tillman, his entire State ticket
and the Democratic Congressmen a
majority throughout the State. The
vote has been remarkably small outside
of Tillmnan's immediate supporters.
Few others have shown much interest
and the quiet vote has been mostly for
his opponent, Judge Haskell. The
negro has not shown the interest that
- a expected, and the impression is
that the vote will prove the smallest
ever cast in the State.
5.20 -p. m.-Telegrams which are
coming in rapidly from diff'erent points
throughout the ~State do not change
the result as indicated in previous tele
grams. Tillmnan and his entire State
ticket appear to have carried the State.
All of the Democratic Congressmen,
with possible uncertainty of one in the
Seventh District, are elected: There has
been no disturbance so far as heard,
THE NEGRO D)IDN'T voTE.
9 p. m.-Scattering returns from
every section of the State indicate the
election of Tillmnan and his entire State
ticket by a large majority except in the
coast counties, which have ver.y large
negro majorities, and in a fewv of the.
cities. The negroes have failed to vote,al
though they have where voting favored
*the Haskell ticket. It does not look as'
if 20,000 of.the negroes in the State have
voted and the white vote isexceedingly
light. This is attributable largely to
the registration law and general apathy
on account of the split in the Demo
cratic party. Fragmentary returns
from the various Congressional districts
indicate that the regular Democratic
candidates have had a wvalk over except
in the Seventh district where the con
test between Elliott (Denm.) and Miller
(Rep.) is thought to be uncomfortably
close. Impossible to give figures to
12 Midnight.-Up to this hour only
125 precincts out of 507 in the State
have reported officially giving figures
for governor, Tillman 13,77S; H askell
5,913~. These precincts usually poll
about one-third of the vote of the State,
so it is likely that the total vote will
not exceed 70,000' Haskell's vote may
reach 25,("00. As the returns come in~
is demonstrated the absolute failure of
the negroes to support the Haskell
ticket, and in various sections they
voted for Tillmian. It is not likely the
further returns wvill alter this estimate.
The returns for congressmen show
that six out of seven districts are cer
tainly Democratic by large majorities.
The 7th district is in possible doubt,
with chances favoring Elliott (Demi.)
against Miller and Brayton, both Re-'

line. Twenty-three miles of road from
Johnson City south are in operation,
and twelve miles northward have
been completed. Much of the grading
between Johnson City and Marion has
been done and track-laying might be

Col. P. P. Dickinson, chief engin"er
of the Construction Company of the

in regard to the progress of the work
on the Augusta division of the ro,ad
from Blacksburg to New berry. He said
that the grading was being carried on
along practically the entire line bet ween
New berry and the Broad river crossing,
about fif~ty-five miles. About Nov. 1
the quarrying of stone for the masonry
required on the route would be begun,
and it wvas expected that by February
the shaping of the stone will be sutii
cietly completed to permit the work
on the bridge abutments to begin.
The superstructures for bridges over
the Broad, Thicketty, Pacolet, Tyger
and Enoree rivers will be of iran, and
have been orderedl from the Phcenix
Bridge Co. of Phrenixville, Pa. The

Bethlehem Iron Co., of Bethlehem, Pa.
It is expected that the line from
Blacksburg to Newberry, il miles, will
be ready for the rails next spring or
early in the summer. The const ruction
of the line will be p)ushed forward as

by the p)retty fifteen-year-old girl,
eight miiles from this city, last even

groundl all (lay, and the Sheriti has
taken charge of the case, but there is
not evidence so far that will throw any
light on it. TIo-nighit "Dute"' Hagood,
a negro 15 years old, was arrested. He
was the ruan who first gave the alarm,
and who (discovered the (lead body of
the girl. Several attempts were made
to lynch the negro, butt he was brought
safly to Columibia and lodged inl jail.

it seems that Miss Hornsby had walked

HURLED TO THEIR DEATH.
Two khulilren Thrown from a High Bridge
by a Young Woman of Akron, N. Y.
BUFFALO, N. Y., November 1.-One
of the most terrible murders ever
known in the history of Erie County
was committed at Akron, twenty-four
miles east of this city last night. A
young woman named Sarah McMullen,
aged 19, formerly living in Bufftlo, but
lately residing with Mrs.Patrick Brown,
in Akron, enticed Delia Bron, aged 6
years, and Nellie May Connors, aged
110 on to the Akron cement works' nar
row-guage railroad bridge, a height of
sixty-five feet, over Murier Creek. All
of a sudden she pushed Delia Brown
over the side of the bridge, and then
grabbed Nellie May Connors and
hurled her into the precipice below.
Nellie was instantly killed, but, for
tunately little Delia Brown lives to tell
the tale. Her arms and legs ore broken,
and although terribly bruised, it is
thought she will recover. Last night
the citizens of Akron searched for the
ruissing girls and found them at about
2 o'clock this morning. For several
hours little Delia had laid on thestones
at the side of the creek unable to move.
She said to Constable Burns that Sarah
had hard work in p)ushing Nellie Con
nors over the bridge and came very
near falling over herself.
After committing the act Sarah Mc
Mullen returned to Mrs. Brown's house
and said to Mrs. Brown, "I am going
away; perhaps you will not see me
again." At the same time she extended
her hand. Mrs. Brown thought she
was fooling: when Sarah again spoke
up, "well, if you won't shake hands
with me, all right," and then she went
out. Her actions excited the curiosity
of the family.
Sarah started for the bridge over the
mill dam at Akron, about ten feet
high, and arriving at the place stepped
between the iron braces and jumped
into the water, which is several feet
deep. Simon Brown saw her and ran
to the spot and rescued her fron drown
ing. No reason is assigned for her ter
rible deed. It is believed to be a crazy
act. She is in custody, but will not
