THURSDAY, 31AY 14, 1S91.
COLUMBIA, S. C., May 13.-The C-tpi
tal city is dressed in holiday attire.
Main street is one continuous stream of
garland flags and all man ner of beauti
ful decorations. The celebration of the
Centennial begins this morning. The
city is well filled with visitors and still
they come. The weather this morning
is not auspicious, but as there is so
much need of rain no one complans.
About twenty of the counties have
erected arches ou Main street of beauti
ful design and decorated with bunting
,ags and mottoes.
Yesterday morning I had the pleas
ura to witness the exercises of the Win
throp Training School in its anniversa
ry celebration. The young ladies acquit
ted themselves very cre-ditably and give
evidence of thorough training. The
school is doing an excellent work, and
Oeserves well of the city of Columbia
and tue State.
Gen. Wade Hampton delivered his
address this morning and many people
_-arehere from all parts of the State to
listen once again to the hero and states
To-morrow will be the grand miltary
parade, and several companies are al
ready here and many m6re are ex
The Centennial will close on Friday
night with the grandest pyrotechniC
display ever witnessed in Columbia.
Newberry is well represented here
already and many more are expected
to-day and to-morrow. The city ex
tends to all a very hearty welcomepa

Q -bspible will be done
wia-e t eir stay pleasant.
The Columbia Register is now giving
its attention to the condition of the
condition of the country roads. This
is a very important matter. No ques
tion a better system of country roads
would be a great saving to the farmer.
- This is a good sulbject for the alliance
to take up.
We publish elsewhere how the rep
resentation will stand in the next
Legislature if the reapportionment is
based upon the last United States cen
sus. It will not affect the representa
tion from Newberry. Charleston will
lose five representatives. It is quite
probable that the last census will be
adopted by the Legislature.
Hon. Horace Chilton, the new sena
tor in Congress from Texas, recently
appointed by Gov. Hogg, has expressed
himself very forcibly and eloquently on
the sub-treasury scheme in a speech at
Tyler,. his home town. He possesses
what hie calls in his speech "cornfield
common sense." The Senator said:
;"Concerning this scheme my owvn
duty is plain. The Constitution of my
country~is against it. Economy, busi
nessju~dgnment, good old cornfield com
mon sense, the experience of the past,
the hopes of the future, the unanimous
warnings of our great statemnen, all
stand in its way. If all these barriers.
should ever be~ broken down, if folly
should ever rule the head and despera
tion fold the ballot of his country,
and a trial should be given to that
scheme, our farmers wi:1 find that be
yond the depths of their present hard
ship there is a still deeper depth in the
misfortunes of the condition prod uced
by the collapse of the sub-treasury.
"It comes now to p)erplex the coun
sels of the people, to divide the organ
ized and exultant ft rees wvhicn mn a few
..ars at most will bring the country
back to the measure and equity
of the plan of the fathers, where
agriculture led all other interests in
profit, importance, and indepeadente.
"And it is said that the managers of
this scheme will force the Democratic
party to lend to it the endorsement of
its great name. In other words, that
they will capture the Democratic party
and pervert it. This seems to be the
settled policy of the sub-Treasury
leaders in Texas. Lei. them try. The
Democratic party in Texas has already
spoken. I believe it will speak again
in the sam2 steady tones of vigor and
resolution. The best men in Texas,
the best farmers, the best mechanics.
the b st mecan the best rep)resen
tatives of every profession, make up the
Democratie party, and wvhen its voice
rises from the schoolhouses and village
meetings in the campaign of 189'2, it
will have in it no tremor of uncertain
ty or retreat, but it wvill swvell and con
solidate into a'determined negative as
grand and as broad as Texas herself."

How the Legislature Would be Affected
if the Porter Census Should be Adopted
as the Basis of Representation.
To the Editor of The News and Cou
rier: Taking the figures published in
your paper of last Friday, we find the
wiole population of the State to be 1,
159,901. If the legislature shall adopt
the United States census as a correct t
enumeration of the population and
basis of apportionment of members of
the house of representatives, the ratio
of representation would be one to every
9,2S2 inhabitants, approximately, Di
vide this number into the population of
the several counties, and it would give
one hundred and six representat ives
divided as follows: Abbevile 5, Aiken

Union 2, Williamsburg 2, York 4, leav
ing eighteen to be assigned to the coun

The counties having fractions of over

HAMBURG IN ASHES.
A. Diastrous Fire in Augusta's Carolina C
LSpecial to News and Courier.] c
AUGUSTA, Ga., May 9.-Hamburg, i
Augusta's Carolina suburb, was swept a
y a $10,000 fire this morning. The
f1'r started in MIr. Dave Lipfield's e
stables, in the rear of his house, on the
:orner of Centre and Mercer streets.
Before the tire was discovered it had g
gained considerable headway, and a
aided by a strong wind blowing fromi
the east. ..rept along the fences and r
>uthouses until the brick residence was
reached and in quick order the entire
place was enveloped in flames. The
store under MIr. Lipfield's residence ,
was ruin by Mtr. Isadore Rubenstemn,
nd the fire ate out the entire building
nd spread to the adjoining store and
residence, owned and occupied by Mr.
Louis Schiller, the mayor of Hamburg.
Uncle Sam's postoffice was in Mr. I
Schiller'sstore and it went up in flames. i<
n the rear of M1r. Lipfield's residence, d
in the back yard, vlas the Richmond
nd Danville Railhoad trestle, and d
about one hundred feet of the trestle i
ias burned away. Mr. Rubenstein had I
his horse- and buggy in Mr. Lipfield's e
stable antd the horse was roasted to t!
:leath in the fire.
r. Lipfield estimates ais loss at o
.5,000 and has no insurance. His pohi- o
ies expired a wveek ago and he refused L
to renewv them.t
r. Rubenstd n puts the loss of his d
t k of goods at $2,000, wit3 $1,000 in- I
3r. Schiller went over to Langley u~
yesterday with a fishing party' and it e
is at kniown whether he was insured
r not, but Mrs. Schiller is under they
m .pression the property is insured.
EHis loss, however, will amount to $20,
It will tale $1,000 to replace the rail
The Richmond and Danville trains
are using the South Carolina Railway
tracks between nere and GlraniteviPle (
until the trestle is rebuilt. d
The fire is supposed to have origin- s
ated from a spark from one of the rail- I
road locomotives falling on the dry t
shingle roof of Mr. Liptield's stable. A 1
train passed over the trestle only r. fc'w v~
minutes before the fire.t
The sufierers by the fire are complain- t
ing to-day of having lost a large quan- t
tity of goods, which were stolen by t
piiagers. The fire has about swept (
Eamburg away, all the business centre ']
now being gone. Trhe buil:iings des- y
troyei. were two-story brick structures. t

and was royally entertained the short C
time I was there. Newvberry and New

tan ever before. The college has a
good reputation, and promises rnuch
fr the future. They have several fine
professor's houses on tile camipus, and
are erecting another that will add very
ruch to the appearance of the whole
property. They have a plain but very
good and serviceable college building,
with high stories, roomy halls, con

Buchanan on Account of a Negro
USpecial to Sunday News.]
CHARLOTTE, May 9.-Wild rumors
,ere afloat here to-day that a riot was
a progress in Chester; that two men
nd three women had been killed, and
hat the military companies had been
alled out to presesve the peace.. No
efinite information could be obtained
ere, consequently I went by the first
rain to Chester and found the rumor
o be false.
There was considerable excitement
bout the killing of Policeman W. R.
Vilson by Fred Buchanan, a barkeeper.
he shooting occurred last night, and
have gathered the particulars from
ninterested people, and they are as
)llows: It seems that Buchanan, who
.eeps a bar room in Chester, has Leen
ntimate with a colored woman of ill
epute, and that this woman has been
oatiing around the passenger depot
reatly to the annoyance ofpassengers
nd officials. She had been warned to
eep away from the depot, and the
t1icials threatened to enforce the usual
aw about licenses, but she persisted in
Linoying them. Yesterday Policeman
ilson arrested her under the law, but
Ler promising to keep away from the
tatiou, the railroad agelm. sucured her
-elease. She went to her paramour,
3uchanan, it'is said and told him that
Wilson had arrested her. Later on Wil
;on passed by Buchanan's bar room,
md Buchanan hailed him with the
itatement that he wanted to see him.
Wilson stopp-d a short distance from
:he bar room. Juchanan came out and
aid to him: "You are no gentleman,"
tud went on to say that Wilson had no
right to arrest the woman. Wilson re
plied that, as a policeman, he had done
bis duty, and he would continue to do
It is said that Wilson here shook his
tinger in Buchanan's face, whereupon
Buchanan shot him through the breast
uarrowly missing his heart. Wilsou
then hit Buchanan with his club. Wil

that he could hay.trd Buchanan,
butWe'ot desire to kill him.

district can be gained from the fact
that almost any of the counties now
filled with tire is as large as the whole

Ties in many places were so badly
burned that the rails spread when the
train went over. When near Moore's
siding one of the cars in the centre of
the train was derailed, and the train
crew were obliged to abandon the rear
part of the train after working until
the cars began to smoke. Before they
reached Farewell there was another de
railment, and all but three of the train
of eighteen cars were left to their fate.
The wind shifted and drove the fire
to the southeast and into Newaygo,
Mecosta and Aceaug counties. Cook's
Station and Barton, both in the line of
the fire, have not been heard from and
are supposed to be destroyed. W\est
Troy, a few miles north of Otia, has
been attacked by the fire since early
yesterday morning and is supposed to
be in ashes.
Reports from Cadillac, Wexford
County, state that the inhabitants of
all the villages in the county have been
out fighting fire for the past three days
and many of the smaller places are
wiped of! the face of the earth. Whbere
Nivarna and Fremnount, on the Faint

nothing now but piles of ashes.

heard from since its last appeal for help.
