A LIQUOR MAN TALKS TREASON.
This morning I had a talk with

way he expressed himself: "Had
known what I now do I would ha
voted for prohibition. I think it won
have been best to have given the pi
hibitioists their own way. Let the
give the State two years' experiet*
and then I think everyone will be s

BOWDEN TALKS STRAIGHT.
Preparations Being Made to Put Out a
Third Party Electoral Ticket.
The often-predicted and long-ex
pected Third party electoral ticket in
South Carolina will soon become a
reality. The man who will lead the
movement, or at least its inception, is
J. W. Bowden, the managing editor
of the Cotton Plant, and the author of
the famous anti-Cleveland editorial in,
that paper, published after the nomi
nation of the standard-bearer of the
National Democrasy. Mr. Bowden for
many months has been the leader of
the "movement" in the State, but it
was hoped that he would not antag
onize the Democracy, as untold com
plications will arise thereby.
"Yes," said Mr. Bowden in reply to
a question from a reporter yesterday
afternoon, "we have gone actively to
work, and by the first of October a
Weaver and Field electoral ticket will
be duly in the field-probably before."
"How will they be nominated?" he
"I have received several letters ad
vising the convention system, but do
not favor it, as it entails too much ex
pense. But they will certainly be in
the field by that time; you can be as
sured of that fact." -
"Will you run a State ticket?"
"No; we will take no hand whatever
in the State and . Congressional
contests, and iindividually we will
favor the election of Governor Till
man and the Reform Congressional
candidates, and will vote for them.
We are consistent in this, too. Gov
ernor Tillman stands on our platform
in State affairs, as does the Reform Con
gressmen, and we are perfectly con
sistent in voting for them. We pro
pose supporting men on the national
ticket who likewise support our prin
ciples-that is all there is In it."
"In the race you certainly do not
expect your ticket to be successful?"
"That is not the question. We are
fighting for principles. Nevertheless,
the Third party is much stronger than
many imagine; and it will surprise the
politicians, judging from the temper
of the resolutions of the March conven
tions. Even Third party men do not
realize its full strength. I believe
there are 30,000 Third party supporters
in the State to-day. We are going to
work organizing at once, and you will
see that the country people will flock
to our support when the battle cry is
"What kind of campaign will you
"This is not decided. Weaver is
coming to South Carolina soon and
will stump the State in our interest.
When he will come and where he will
speak we do not know yet." - We do
not expect Watson over, but feel as
sured he could do some excellent work.
The general plan of our campaign is
What stand the Cotton Plant will
occupy is a matter of much interest.
Bowden, an announced Third partyite,
cannot write Democratic editorials, and
tokes, a staunch Democrat, cannot
endorse the utterances of his subordi
nate. From the present outlook, some
body must step down and out. Which
will it be? An interesting fact con
nected with the case is that the Cotton
Plant is the only Alliance~official organ
in the United States that is supporting
Mr. Bowden seemed very much in
earnest as to his utterances and was
very careful in his statements. It is a
well-known fact that he has lately or
ganized Third party clubs in various
places, and ther are several in full
bloomi throughout the State. There
are politicians in different sections who
have been waiting for the call to join
the movement, and this announce
ment that a ticket for electors will be
put in the field seems the battle cry.
In further conversation he said that1
the Third party agitation was started
for the sake of unity in the ranks, and
not primarily with a hope of success.
He says that he expects nothing but
warfare from the present Reform lead
ers and believes that Governor Till
man will lead the fight upon them.
They look for help from nobody who
took a prominent part in nominating
candidates in the late primaries.
Death of George Winlam Curtis.
NEw YoBX, August 31.-H:on. Geo.
W. Curtis died at his home at Living -
ton, Staten Island, to-day.
He was conscious to the end and
suffered no pain. Dr. Frank G. Curtis,
his son, was in attendance, and Mrs.
and Miss Curtis were present.
The nature of his disease has never
been determined. It was announced
some time ago that he was suffering
from a cancer in the stomach, but the
physicians who attended him could
not agree that the disease was cancer
ous in its nature and it was the opin
ion of a number of them that he suf
fered from some abnormal growth on
the abdomen which became very
large. It is understood that there will
be an autopsy.
A SKETCh OF BIS LIFE.
George William Curtis was born in
Prvidence, B. I., February 24, 1824.
After attending school at Jamaica
Plain, Mass., he removed to New
York with his father in 1839, and for a
year was a clerk in a store in that city.
In 1842, with his elder brother, he
joined the community of Brook Farm,
where he worked as a farm laborer for
eighteen months. Then he tried farm
lie for the same length of time near~
In 1846 Mr. urtis went abroad, liv
ing for some time in Italy and Ger
many, traveling in Egypt and Syria.
In 1850 he returned home and took a
position on the editorial staff of the
New York Tribune. He was also one
of the editors of the first series of "Put
nam's Monthly" from 1852 till it died.
In 1853 Mr. Curtis began in "Har
per's Monthly" the series of papers en
titled, "The Editor's Easy Chair," and
in the same year entered the lecture
field, where he won immediate suc
He also speedily gained great repu
tation as a popular orator, and -in the
presidential canvass-of 1856 spoke in
behalf of the Republican candidates.
Soon after the establishment of
"Harper's Weekly," in 1857, he became
its chief editorial writer, a position he
held until his death.
Mr. Curtis was several times a dele
gate to National Republican conven
tions, and was a member of the con
stitutional convention of New York,
and was chairman of the committee
on education. He declined the Consul
generalship to Egypt, tendered by
Mr. Curtis was a strong advocs.te of
civil service reform, and in this field
was easily champion. He declined the
mission to Germany, offered by Presi
ident Hayes, and also declined to name
any foreign mission he might like to
fill. In 1884 Mr. Curtis was chairman
of an Independent Republican conven
tion held in New York to protest
against the nomination of Mr. Blaine
for President, and since then he has
never been a stalwart Republican. He
supported Mr. Cleveland in 1884 and
has been a Democrat in national poli
ties ever since. -

- Proposes to Capture a Live Whale.
LNew Bedford (Mass) Mercury.]
Capt. Amos Chapman, of Boston,
but formerly of Provincetown, has ar
rived on the cape and is shaping a crew
of old experienced whalemen for a new
and novel voyage-to capture a live
sperm whale, to be taken to the world's
fair at Chicago.
In an interview with the captain he
states: "I do not intend to make
known my mode of procedure, but I
know I'shall succeed if I can find my
whale. My crew are all picked men,
and every one of them has been en
gaged in the business and can be de
pended on. Whales are reported
plentyin latitude 38- degs. 30 min.,
longitude 71 degs., by Captain Durham,
who has just returned with a full cargo
of oil, and for that place I shall shape
"I do not propose to take one of the
largest. A fifty or sixty foot whale
will answer my purpose. I have the
plans all drawn for a large tank, in
which the whale will be placed and
towed by steamer up the St. Lawrence
and through'the lakes to Chicago. I
have everything prepared to take the
whale and bring him into port all
"All I want now is to get a suitable
vessel. When that is obtained a few
days will see me off .for the -grounds,
and if I find the whale, I expect to be
back by the last 6f September. I .can
keep my whale in the harbor here
while my tank Is building, and in thse
spring start for Chicago. Yes, I know
it is quite an undertaking, but I also
know that I have a dead sure thing."
'What awakens these ecstatic pangs?'
sighed young Mr. Snippy, as he leaned
over the veranda balustrade and turned
his face with its fair young mustache
towards the moon.
"I do not know," replied Miss Yorker,
briskly, "but I believe that insufficient

lunching on pie, is very frequently

The period of incubation of the dis.

The mere presence of an Infected -per

endanger those in the vicinity. If the =
disease germ does not somehow or,
other find its way to the stomach they .f
run no risk. The trouble is that there
are so many ways in which the germ
may be taken into the stomach It
may find its way there by meansof
polluted water or food. A person may
touch his -hand to some infected ob- ..
ject and unwittingly convey the germ -
to his stomach whej eating. There
are various other ways of producing
infection, and only the greatest care
and thoughtfulness on the part of
those exposed can place them beyond
the reach of danger.
