DUEL ON KING STREET.
Well Known Cliarlestonians Exchange
shot* at Early Hour?No Casultles
1 twul i,
Charleston, Aug. 26.?Two well
known men had a pistol duel at an
early hour this morning on King
street, near Wentworth, but neither of
the participants was hurt, and fortu?
nately the stray bullets did not strike
anybody or do other damage, as far
as could be learned today. It is un?
derstood that bad blood has been ex?
isting between the men for some tim.
Once before they had a shooting
scrape and this morning the trouble
broke out again, with the result that
they exchanged several shots. The
quiet of the streets at the early hours
of morning alone prevented probably
the death or injury of innocent par?
ties. No arrests were made, the par?
ticipants of the affair getting out of
the way of the police officers on the

The Spanish casualties amount to 350.
A Spanish column has destroyed three

A Moorish deserter, who has come

Spanish prisoners, after being horri?

Estimates place the number of Span?

The water being doled out to the!

The officers buy mineral waters, but i
this the men cannot afford to do, and i
