HEW TREATY WITH ENBLAMD.
Substitute for Clayton-Buiwer
Treaty Will Contain Mutual
Concessions and be Neutral.
Washington, Oct. 8.-There has been
no , surrender by England to t?e
United States in" the matter of the
new isthmian canal treaty according
to the best authority here." It is said
to be equally true that the United
States has sacrificed no principle in
these negotiations and the effect of
contrary statements is deprecated as
likely seriously to jeopardize the
chances of tho consummation of the
convention which shall finally and
peacefully settle an issue thai; has been
a source of danger for the past fiftv
It is said that what actually has
happened is that each side has pre?
served the underlying principle of the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty and" the new
convention will provide for a new
waterway, neutral at all times and
. open to the commerce of the world.
The Ciayton-Bulwer treaty, however,
drawn half a century ago, has proved
to be defective in mechanism for giv?
ing effect to this purpose. The new
treaty simply provides this mechanism.
England is relieved from the guarantee,
which,, in her case was only trouble?
some, and which, being assumed by
the United States in toto, is quite as
effective. As viewed from the Ameri?
can point of view, there was no sur?
render on England's part in seeking
this relief, inasmuch as the above
mentioned principle is reiterated and
affirmed as binding upon the United
States. As for the form of the treatv,
it may be stated that it embodies in
substance, the amendments to the
Eay-Pauncefote treay which were
adopted by the senate and beyond that,
the changes are believed to be textual
rather than substantial.
GALVESTON UNDER WATER.
Galveston, Tex., Oct. 8.-Galveston
was visited by the heaviest rainfall in
its history today. It began raining
last night, but the storm which form?
ed off Galveston did not break until
early this morning and from 3 a. m.,
until lp. m., the precipitation was
tremendous. For the 14 hours ending
at 12.30 p. m. H. 08 inches of water
felL From 8 a. m. to 1 p .p m. three
inches felL The rain was accompanied
by wind which blew 42 miles an hour
at IL30 a. m., from the east. The
streets were inundated and street car
traffic was stopped, ail business being
practically suspended. The actual
financial damage cannot be estimated
at this time, but it is not belived to
be heavy. Some of the buildings on
the Strand were partially flooded by
water backing over the streets. The
tide was only two feet above normal
and there was no salt water in the
streets. The rain was local, extending
only along a poration of the Texas
coast and inland for 50 or 30 miles
v with less intensity.
lata Will Not Withdraw.
Wasbintgon, Octobers.- Kepresenta
~:tive Latimer, who is an avowed candi
date for the Senate to succeed Senator
McLaurin, refuses to consider seriously
"the magnanimous proposition of State
'Chairman "Wilie Jones, who is also an
?aspirant for Senatorial honors, that
all of the candidates withdraw in favor
of the "Grand Old Man," Gen. Wade
Hampton. There is not a man in South
Carolimi, said Mr. Latimer today,
"who has greater respect for Gen.
Wade Hampton than I have, and I
would go as far as any other man to
make his declining years comfortable
and happy, but I cannot agree with
CoL Jones's suggestion to drag Gen.
Hampton back into the excitement and
turmoil of political life. It's all very
'well for Col. Jones to invoke senti?
mental and patriotic motives in behalf
of Gen. Hampton. It has a magnani?
mous flavor, which may appeal to the
sentiment of a number of people who are
entirely unacquainted with the actual
conditions entering into the Senatorial
fight in South Carolina. Col. Jones
has an assured position, which pays
something over $5.000 a year, and he
doubtless realizes that he can hardly
make the Senatorship in the pending
contest, so in a "burst of sympathy and
zeal for Gen. Hampton he proposes
that all of the other candidates who
have already stripped for the fray, and
have commenced their canvass, shall
step aside so that Gen. Hampton may
be induced to come out of retirement
and again take up the trials and re?
sponsibilities of politics. I am frank
to say that I will net give my con?
sent to that proposition ; and I do not
believe Gen. Hampton and his best
friends sanction the move made by

Mr. Hemphill Will Probably Not
Columbia, Oct. 10.-Mr. John J.
Hemphill of Chester was in the city
yesterday. Mr. Hemphill has been
considered a prominent candidate for
the ofice of United States senator now
held by Mr. McLaurin, and some
curiosity has been manifested as to
what would be Mr. Hemphill's atti?
tude toward the proposition of Col.
Wilie Jones to make Gen. Wade
Mr. Hemphill expressed the highest
admiration for Gen. Hampton, but said
he had not-fully determined upon his
course, particularly as Mr. Latimer
declines to withdraw in favor of Gen.
Hampton. Mr. Hemphill stated that
his candidacy was not altogether of
his own motion, and before giving up
the fight he would have to confer with
his friends. He had just come from
Spartanburg and declares that he has
met with encouragement wherever he
has been. He seemed to think that
whatever he might or might not have
done, the action of Mr. Latimer would
prevent any further action among the
candidates to withdraw in favor of
Gen. Hampton.-The State.
VALUE OF COTTON SEED.
Marion, Oct. 7.-At a meeting of
the farmers of Marion county today
the follow ing resolutions were adopted :
Whereas from reliable reports the
cotton crop is unprecedentedly short,
and there being an increased demand
for cotton seed, and
Whereas the price and terms of ex?
change fixed by the cotton seed oil
trust are below the real value of cot?
ton seed, therefore be it
Resolved, That it is the judgment
of the farmers of Marion county in
mass meeting that the seed are worth
for manuring to the farmers 25 cents
per bushel, or should be exchanged
for meal on a basis of 100 bushels of
seed for one ton of meal, and we urge
the farmers of this county not to sell
or exchange at less than the above
prices, and we ask the earnest coopera?
tion of every cotton grower in the
State to this end.
A committee consisting of W. A.
Brown, B. F. Davis and L. M. Hasel
den was appointed to acquaint the
farmers of the State through the pub?
lic press of the foregoing action and
to urge their cooperation.

Martial Law in Africa.
Cape Town, Oct. 9.-The Gazette
today proclaims martial law in the
districts of Cape Town, Wynberg,
Simontown, Port Elizabeth and East
The proclamation is the outcome of
the recent visit of the premier of Cape
Colony, Sir John Gordon Sprigg, and
the under secretary of native affairs in
South Africa, J. Rose Innes, to the
British high commissioner, Lord
Milner. It places under military con?
trol the few points in Cape Colony
hitherto exempted and the constitution
therefore, is now suspended over the
entire colony. The action taken prob?
ably foreshadows the commencement of
vigorous measures which those on the
spot are understood to believe neces?
sary to end the war.
Martial law will be modified in it?
application to the ports, by leaving the
docks, railroads and harbors under the
control of the civil .authorities. Mili?
tary rule will be mitigated in some
Miss Stone's Captors.
Constantinople, Oct 9.-A trust?
worthy report locates Miss Stone's
ibductors on the summit of a motm
ain at Gultepe, on the Turko-Bulga- \<
.ian frontier, near Dubnitza. It is sa?c?
;hat the kidnapping band numbera*
?ighteen. Arrangements have been
nade to surround the mountain with
turkish and Bulgarian troops. It ha?
>een suggested that the abductors ?sf
Kliss Stone are members of the old
dacedonian committee, actuated by
notives of jealousy, and that they are
ndeavoring to accomplish the down
all of the present committee. The
bulgarian government bas promised
o act vigorously.

Mr. Efird, president of the Alliance,
s generally credited with having some ?
ispirations to succeed Secretary of jj
State Cooper, but he recently denied /
;hat his activity in Alliance reorgan
zation was prompted by any desire to
:urther his own political eaids.
Mr. Elder is from York and is. a

healthy sign that the rank and file of
the Alliance want the order to be a |

Suing for Rich Oil Reids.
Montgomery, Ala., Oct. 9.-W. A.
Humphreys of Waco, Tex., Marcus
and T. M. Humphreys of Anniston
and their relatives, have begun suit
for the possession of oil fields at Beau?
mont, Tex., upon which are situated
In the suit that has been brought
against the capitalists now controlling
the property, it is claimed by the
prosecution that when the oil fever
struck Texas Capt. C. M. Lucas, J.
M. McFadden and twenty-three others
took posesssion of 5,750 acres of oil
land south of Beaumont. The value
of the land is said to $25,000,000.
This property according to the heirs,
rightfully belongs to the Humphreys
estate and suit is entered against the
capitalists for $25,000 per year from
each defendant for trespass upon the
land besides 85 cents per barrel on
5,000,000 barrels of oil shipped out of
Bogus Oil Companies.
Dallas, Tex., Oct. 9.-The State of
Texas is starting prosecutions against
fraudulent oil companies. More than
100 companies of that class sold mil?
lions of dollars of worthless stock dur?
ing the early stages of the Beaumont
boom. The suits will bo tried at Aus?
tin, where the Travis county grand
jury is now investigating.
