A Dtfaaatory Letter Charging Rv*ns With

pessary was Ground of Altercation.
Greenville, July 7.-A per sonal
altercation took place tonight in
front of the Daily Nc ws office be
tween I. H. Evans of Newberry
and J. K. Blackman, editor of the
Greenville News. Mr. Evans came
here this afternoon to make a pass
ing demand upon the editor of the
News for the authorship of an article
4ed"A Looker on in Vienna,'"
which appeared in Saturday's issue,
and alleged that a member of the
State dispensary board living in
Newberry had. profited largely by
l s ~eonneotion therewith-buying
lvains, wearing diamonds, etc.
Evand tplegraphed the editor of
the News Saturday night asking for
the name of the writer, to which the
-- -bIowing response was made: "We

name of the author of the ar
cle to which we presume you refer,

Evans was at once arrested by the
police, and friends went with him to
hbeeidence of Mayor Jono who
leased him upon $10 for his ap
-paance to answer for disorderly
conduct. Evans preferred no charge
agaiist Blackman, who was carried
nato.the News offie.
Evans dis:-laims any purpose of
engaging in a fight with Blacknaan,
and says he only asked in a civil way

article to which he took exception,
as he was det.ermined to make. some

MR. BLAeNMAN' 8SIDE.
Greenville, July 8.-The following
has been handed to the correspond
ent of the State this afternoon, and
is intended to correct some port ionE
of the account given in today's State
of the alterc'ation between Messrs.
H. H. Evans and J. K. Blackman,
-the facte being given to your corre.
spondent last night by Mr. Evans1
-who was the only..one of the partieE
accessible at the tim", and the hour
was too late for inavestigation. MA
Evans can make his own comments
upon the discrepancies as to whal
took place wheni they met in front ol
the News office, which is the only
material difference in their state
ments. J- A. H.

In regard to the affair between
-Mr. H. H. Evans, of Newberry, and
Mr. J. K. Blackman, editor of thE
Greenville News, an account ol
which was published in the State to.
day, it is only fair that the othei
side of the story should be told
- This morning's account was given t<
the correspondent of the State b3
Mr. Evans himself and his friends.
Mr. J F. R ichardson, manager ol
the News, says: "Mr. Evans met
me on Main street yesterday about
3 30 p. m. in the presence of sevoral
witnesses, Col. J. A. Hoyt, Ex-Gov
ernor Mauldin and others. He was
cordial and affable; greeted me with
'Hello, Jeff, old man, how are you?'
He asked me very pleasantly who
was the author of the article signed
'A Looker on in VLenna' that ap
peared in the Greenville News of
Saturday. I told him I had not the
slightest idea who the party was, but
that he could doubtless find out from
Mr. Blackman all he wanted to
"He said he didn't know Mr.
Blackman, but presumed he was a
gentleman. I replied that Mr. Black
man was eminently a gentleman, and
that Mr. Evans would find him so.
I then suggested that we go over to
the News office and see Blackman.
When we got there the local reporter
told us that Blackman had gone
home-sick shortly before. Evans said
he was very anxious to see the editor
in time to get of on the afternoon
train, so I suggested telephoning to
Blackman at his residence I did
"I asked to speak to Blackman
over the 'phone, and was told in re
ply that that gentieman was ill with
an attack of cholera morbus and ly
ing down. I then sent him the mes
sage that Mr. Evans, of Newberry,
was in town, in our office, and wished
to see him. Mr. Blackman sent word
in reply that he would be down be
tween 7 and 8 o'clock. This seemed
to satisfy Mr. Evans, who said he
would wait. He was pleasant and
affable the whole time, and the idea
of any impending trouble never ,oc
curred to me for a moment. It is
needless to add that had I once sus
pected trouble I should have re
mained in the office and not have
gone to my summer home on Paris
Mountain for the night.
"I can only add that I was sur.
prised and shocked to learn of the
affair upon raching the city this
Blackman's story, corroborated by
several witnesses, is as follows:
"After getting Mr. Richardson's
message that Mr.Evans was in the city
and wanted to see me, I got up from
a sick bed and went down to the
News office between 7 and 8 o'clock,
as I had said I would do. I was met
near tbs bottom of tbe steps, leading
from the ground up to our offices,
by Mr. Evans-as I learned after
ward. He approached me and asked
if I was Mr. Blackman, and, upon
being answered afgrmat,ively, held
ont a copy of the telegram I had
sent him Saturday migh', asking if
that was my wessage. I looked at
it and replied that it was. I was
standing partly sidewise to him read
ing the telegram, and before I could
raise my head be muttered: 'Then
I'll kill you,' and struck me a ter
rific blow from behind, landing
about the base of the brain at the
back of the bead. I fell forward
semi conscious. He continued to
beat me after I was down. I was
helpless, the blow on the back of the
head having tempor arily paralyzed
me I was entirely unarmed, but
had I had an arsenal I would have
been powerless to use it, from the
fact that the attack came so unex
pectedly, and from the rear. I had
had no idea of impending trouble,
and had Mr. Evans asked for the
name of the author of the article, as
srtiLg its incorrectness, I should
certainly have endeavored to obtain
the author's consent to give it to
sTILL PARTIALLY PARALYZED.
Mr. Blackman's pby sician stated
today that for two days past Mr.
Blakman had been suffe.ring from
an' aeute attack of cholera morbus,
for which he was under treatment at
the time of the assault. He sa" Mr.
Blackman about a half hour after
Monday evening's occurrence, and
again Tuesday morning and after
noon. He told a reporter that Mr.
Blackman was suffering from con
cssion of the brain caused by a
blow on the back of the head at the
base of the brain, similar to what
might obtain a person who had been
sand-bagged, and that the resultant
partial paralysis in the limbs still
persists at this writing. He hopes
to have Mr. Blackman out in a day

BAILEY AND BhVERIDGE.
The Qaarrel of the Two Senators seems to
Hlave Blown Over.
W ashington, July 1.-When the
Senate convebed today there were no
indications of the exciting scenes of
yesterday. Senator Bailey, of Texas,
entered the chamber from the Demo.
ratic cloak room soon after the in
vocation had been pronounced and
took his seat on the Democratic side.
He was joined by Senator Spooner
and they chatted together for a few
minutes. Representative Burlebon,
of Texas, then joined Senator Bailey
and had an extended talk with him.
Senator Beveridge did not appear
in the senate during the early part
of the session. After his chat with
Senator Burleson Senator Bailey left
Senator Beveridge, who had been
engaged in his committee room, en
tered the chamber about half an
hour after the Senate convened. As
he went to his seat on the extreme
Democratic side other Senators join
ed him and shook him cordially by
the hand Later he went over on
the Republican side.

The State appealed.
It being admitted that the affidavit

for a change of venue complied with
the requirements of the statute
(supra) it was mandatory upon the
magistrate to change the venue and
it was reversible error for him to pro

that on trials before magistrates the

While this is undoubtedly the
proper practice and its enforcement
would be satisfactory, yet this court
is not prepared to say now that every
