matteitfcwas discussed for some time
but when it was put to a vote, the
resolution to allow bicycles to go

The matter of selecting | tt coord*
si nee then brought -p nod debated
for the greater part of a half hour,
letters were read fom M. L. R. Jen
Ings and Mr. Charles Piskney, apply?
ing for the position, but. as it was
shown that no regular office hours
had been required of the Recorder
previously, and It was doubtful that
i her of the applicants would hold
the position for anv length of time,
if elected, and If they would be Ofl
hand at any time to 111. out warrants
should they be needed. It was decid?
ed to defer the matter until the next
me ting of council. Mayor Jennings
xh* in favor of filling the position
at once as he refused to hold court
for the Recorder any longer. He
stated that he would resign his po?
sition as Mayor before he would take
up the duties of Ret order for any
ugth of time. Several motions
w .e made and afterwards rescinded.
At one time it was moved that the
? unt il go into election and several
had already cast their ballots when
it was decided to rescind the motion.
Mr. (Ilenn stated that he had tried to
get several persons to apply for the
position but that they had refused to
do SO, stating that the salary was not
sufficient. Some members of council
thought that either man was a good
man for the place but Stated that
ihev did not want to elect someone
to have them resign iti ? .short time,
and that they did DOt think that
e
? ither applicant knew how much of
his time was expected of him and
that Council end thS police did not
know whether they would always be
nearby when It was necessary to have
wnrmnti Ailed <?"t. Mr. Cuttlno
thought that they ought to go slow
and look around thm before select*
iuk anyone at all and at least find
out i! the persons applying could
aiv ? the proper amount of time to
lh< ??thee it was finally decided to
put off the election of ? Recorder un?
til the neal meeting of council, and
to iee In the meantime if other np
plleants could not be secured for the
position so that there would be a
larger number |o choose from.
A large number of bills, were then
!? id and referred to the various com?
mittees for approval The matter
of payment of a certain bill in which
the city, Mr. f \v MeKetvsr, Mr. H,
W. Hood nnd So, '?'> reel team war-*
Interested was sgaln brought up and
discussed lor considerable time, Mr,
McKelver stated that he wanted the
Uro boys protected, No sctlon was
l ik? n In the matter.
It w n< p elded to grant the petit?
ions of Dr. a. c, Meli and Dr. I, a
Mood, while it the same time I mo?
tion was carried to |he SffOCt that
the City Attorney be Instructed to
look Into the matter <>f whether or
not the ordinance was constitutional j
nnd could be enforced or not,
<?<> moll wanting to know the exact
ntatui of the ordinance.
The matter of the city's encroach?
ment upon the land of i>r. J. a.
Mood wi?s again brought up but it
O/ai decided t? let the matter drop
ttntil I >r. Mood took some further
action In the matter.
The request of Mr. Burkett that
h<> be refunded the fine money paid
to tii" Recorder was refused. it
was decided to refer the matter of
the pistol to the City Attorney to
see If the city had the right to con
JQsWfHsthe weapon.
The drY WSll which W. T. An?
drews had roqihjgi ?d permission to
build oams In for if> jjiii share of
discussion, some of whlchSNLS rather
heated. Mr. Cuttlno moved ihtt
the Request be not granted, but af?
ter the discussion Mr. Wright substi?
tuted a motion to the effect that
council refer the matter to the Hoard
<d* Health with the recommendation
that it be granted, until the city can
build tt sewerage main that far out.
In the discussion renders! by the re?
quest it was shown that there were
several dry wells now in use in the
city where there as a sewerage line
rrnning near by to which the sinks
OOUld be attached. Mr. Cuttlno said
that he thought that all of them
ought to be closed up at once and
that the ordinance passed in 1899 to
the effect that no dry wells be allow?
ed In the city be revived and en?
forced. He was opposed to them and
thought that they were very injurious
to the health of the community. Mr.
McKeiver and Mr. Wright thought
that, as the city could not afford to
furnish the sewerage line for those
living out on Manning avenue, it
ought to grant them the dry wells.
After the matter had been referred
to the Board of Health It was drop?
ped.
There being no further business
council adjourned to meet again at
the time for their regular session on
the fourth Tuesday in the month.
IN Till: POLICE COURT.
Muyor Jennings settles several Gases
to the Advantage of the City.
There wa re several cases up In the
Recorder's court Tuesday tor the first
time in more than a week. As there
is no llecorder at present, Mayor Jen
nnlgs acted as such an | gave out a
fen .loses that will not K forgotten
In a short timr by the often lers be?
t?rt him.
The. tust criminal uj v. the Itov.
M. M. Martin, who was charged
with cruelty to animals, the cruelty
having been shown by his driving a
horse which was not in condition for
such work. He pleaded not guilty
but upon his own testimony it was
shown that the horse was a very
sickly animal and was in no condi?
tion to be driven, so he paid a fine of
$10 Into the city treasury.
After the first case the crimi?
nals came up in pairs, whether from
timidity or because they could not
get along well together was not shown
by the seidenes. Abbls Brallsford and
Jerry Ford were up on the charge
of fighting, to which they both plead?
ed guilty. The evidence showed that
they had indulged in a little fracas In
which a bottle was broken on the
head of the one while a brick was
used against the head of the other.
Mayor Jennings fined each of the of?
fenders $5 or 20 days.
Warren Robertson and Tom Rich
ardson were charged with drunken?
ness and breach of peace. It was
shown that Richardson was not at
fault and that Warren Robertson,
who had knocked Richardson down,
but who had forgotten all about it.
was much at fault, so the one was
allowed to go "seott free," while the
other was asked to pay a fine of $10
or to serve :10 days on the gang.
Charley Brallsford did not like be?
ing guyed about his brother, so he
jumped on Richard Williams, threw
him down and showed him what he
could do for him If he just tried.
Richard was smaller than Charley
so could do very little except get a
police officer to help him out of bis
trouble which he straightway did.
Both of them were up before the Re?
corder as the consequence. Both
pleaded guilty to the (barge of fight?
ing, but as the evidence showed that
Williams had suffered and Hruilsford
had not, the Mayor made Charley
pay a fine of $1. or serve 4 days. The
sentence was made light because the
offenders were very young.
wom \\ m icm:i> to m: Mil,

There was a very small vote cast
in Sumter county Tuesday and the
only enthusiasm shown was in the
race for Auditor between the four
candidates for that position.
So far as is now known, with all
the boxes in the county except those
at Shlloh and Manchester, reported
Wilder has a majority of 28 votes
OUt of the 852 so far heard from. The
two boxes unheard from may make
a see >nd race necessary, but it is
probable that the vote will not be
changed, save to give Wilder a great?
er lead over his opponents.
As the State officers were already
elected in everything except name, no
interest was manifested in voting for
the party nominees. The amend?
ments did not arouse much interest
either save that for an adidtional Jus?
tice on the State Supreme court, which
was generally favored and voted
for.
No one considered the can.
of Richardson seriously so the
sral box was generally slighted
despite Congressman Lever's r?
that everybody vote, few too
trouble to east in their ballots.
Interest was manifested Ii
election Of Governors of Ohio,
Jersey and New York, where, t
delight of the many who wait
hear the returns, the Demo
nominees were elected.

of the wound, was captured near

CHRISTIAN CHURCH REVVAL.

Prom the Rally Item, Nov. 9.
Evangelist Stiles spoke last night
upon the subject: "The Herald of
Christ." He said in part:
"It is altogether a mistake to sup?
poses that the world is unweihing to
hear an intensely earnest and pos?
itive religious discussion. More peo?
ple gt? to hear that than any other
kinel of elise-ussion whatever.
The only one thing in which all
mankind is interested is the great
question of the salvation of the soul.
Some* people, like* the Pharisees of
del, have shrunk away from all
.jeKidness ami nobleness, and wither?
ed into the- nunnery of a soul. God
have mercy em the religious nun?
neries that are started up in our
?bundles. No skepticism, however
logical its philosophy may scorn, will
loothe the conscience or rock it to
rest with an everlasting lullaby. No
tgonsticlsm or worldliness can se>otbe

Washington, Kov. 7.?All over the
Cntted states the people will to
morrow choose the members ?>f the
I <'ongres< to represent the forty
i ur soverign States of the Cnlon.
Maine and Vermont held their elec?
tions in September.
The total membership of the House
is now lit; majority Ho;. Present \
Republican membership, 21 ?; pres?
ent Democratic membership) 172; va?
cancies, 4: Republican majority, 4 3.
In order to gain control of the
House it will he necessary for the
Democrats to elect _4 members,
while the Republicans may lose 12
and still hold control. Of the 24
necessary to secure control by the
Democrats, two members have been
elected frMm Maine.
The vacancies were caused by
resignations and death of members.
Samuel L. Gilmore, of Louisiana,
Democrat; Chas G Tirrell. of Massa?
chusetts, and Walter C. Brownlow\-ot\^
Tennessee, have died. and Gordon
Russell, of the 3d Texas district, has
o
resigned.
Legislatures will be elected la
twenty-seven States, by which Uni?
ted States Senators are to be chosen.
Of the 30 Senators whose terms ex- \
pire March 4 next. 24 are Republi- '
cans and 6 Democrats. Maryland,
Mississippi and Vermont already
have elected their Senators.
Reports that have reached Wash?
ington today are that both sides are
elaimi'.g victory everywhere and \
nothing but a close count will de?
termine the victors.
Never in the history of the coun?
try, perhaps, has so much interest
centered in an election that was not
for the purpose of electing a Presi?
dent. It is recognized that as New
York and Ohio go tomorrow, so, In
all probability, will go the whole
country two years hence in the nat?
ional election. In addition to this the
wonderful influence of Col. Roosevelt
has been felt keenly. Nothing but
on official count will tell what the re?
sult will be.
