Gainesville, Y<v., July U.?Hon. .1. R.
Parcel! has formally withdrawn from tho
race for the "Democratic gubernatorial
nomination. He will'under no circum?
stances allow the use of ;his name at the
Roauoke convention in August. Mr.
Puree.1, in an interview, said jto-night:
"The action of tho Richmond commit?
tee, determining that dollars should com
trol the primary instead of sense, wus
sufficient to Instantly debar my candi?
dacy from the August convention, bo it
Popocratic or Populisitic.
"Thus the $400 candidates for gover?
nor by political bartcr.niuy control thrice
their strength, thereby misrepresenting
tho primary participants as to lieutenant
governor and attorney general. Maj.
Lee should be commended for proposing;
sugar coating the 1G to 1 before adminis?
tering the pill to the Democrats.
"I congratulate him upon his manly
stand as to the $K)U and the Richmond
primary. It" Is un-Demccratic to dis?
franchise a voter simply because ho is
poor. Is it not equally so to debar one
from the support of his friends!"
"Deeply grateful for the assurances of
sympathy and support in Richmond and
elsewhere I am impelled to say that, as
ever before, I still stand for true b'ue
Democracy?a Democracy bullded upon

and a fair count. Of course no one with
these convictions could receive auy nomi?
nation from the Roanoke convention. A
gold dollar should of course have in it a
dollar's worth of gold, then .why not a
dollar's worth of metal in any_other
metal dollar?
"It is wrong to attempt to legislate
money into the pockets of the few troin
the labors of the ivany. Should (he Hi
to 1 idea prevail nationally, it would
work a grievous injury to all "farmers
and all wage workers. The business of
law would have a boom not absolutely
necessary to the general welfare. Hap?
pily the sound sense of a majority of the

JAPAN TO FIGHT THE TARIFF.
The Mikado's ? rime Minister AVarns the

Victoria, B. C, July 3?Count Okuma,
the prime minister and minister of for?
eign affairs of Japan, delivered himself
as follows at Shizuoka recently, with
regard to the new tariff now being re?
vised by American legislators:
"On account of the heavy duty to be
imposed on tea, an equivalent duty will
be put our chief articles of export, such
as silks, sugars and carpets. This is an
unpleasant fact to face, but there is no
help for it. The proposed new tariff will
effect Japan more than it will England.
France and [Belgium. It appears that
the oi.ly course open is to warn America
that Japan and other powers will reci'?- j
rocate by imposing heavy duties upon j
her goods."

THE SENATE?INCREASED TAXES
ON CIGARETTES WILL ALSO AID
IN SOLVING THE PROBLEM.
Washington, July 3.?An unsuccessful
effort was made in the Senate yesterday
afternocn by Mr. Allison to secure an
agreement for a.vote upon thu tariff bill.
Senator Teller interposing Ins objection
to snch nn agreement until all the
amendments to be proposed by the Re?
publican managers had been submitted.
As Mr. Allison could not comply with
his suggestion, the matter went over
without agreement. There was still some
hope that a vote could bo reached to-day,
butthe outlook showed that this hope was
be doomed to disappointment It is not
likely that tho consideration of the meas?
ure can be concluded before Tuesday or
Wednesday of next week, in which event
the Seuate will be in ?ossiounn next Mon?
day, the 5th of July.
The most important matter yet to be
considered is the adoption of an amend
mend men t placing a tax upon all trans?
actions in stocks and bonds. This prop?
osition originated in the 'caucus at tho
suggestion of Senator Lodge, of Massa?
chusetts who has given the 'matter con?
siderable thought, aud whoso prcscnta
\ tion of the case secured a caucus agree?
ment to incorporate the tax'n the bill.
As the matter at present stands, the tax
will be two cents.a share on all purchases
of stock of th" par value of if 100 or lcs
and an equal "sum on all bonds. The
amendment will also provide for a stamp
tax on a'l issues of stock, whether when
a company is orginally formed, or
whether it subsequently enlarges) its
issue. Tho rate suggested Is.llvu cents
per $100 of stock. Carefully estimates
made yesterday indicate that the revenue
from tax on transfers of stock will aggre?
gate about $13,000,000, of which $8,000,
000 will he contributed by the New York
Stock Exchange alone. It is "said that
this tax is open to the least criticism of
any suggested, inasmuch as it is p.iid by
tho wealthiest classes, anil it is but a
fraction, ;being *2-10D of a cent on every
dollar. The tax is now in operation in
Germany.France and Russia, netting the
latter government $10,000,000 a year and
France $13.000,000 a year. No estimate
can be made for Germauy, as the stamp
tax there is not differentiated as to stocks
alone. There seems to 'be no question of
the adoption of the amendment, although
it is said that a large delegation from tho
Now York Stock Exchange will be here
to protest against it.
If, as is estimated, the receipts from
this source will be $13,0(10,000 a year,
and if $2,500,000 be added *for the in?
creased tax of $9 a "pound ]on cigarettes,
which has been jdeoided)upon, and $2,?00,
OOU more by reason of the discontinuance
01 the discount heretofore allowed to
hrewei s, then the'total of $18,000,OCO will
offset tin; loss by abandoning the in?
creased txaes on liter and tobacco and the
duty on tea, mil will satisfactorily solvj
the question of whether the bill will pro
ridc sufficient revenue.

cincts, all of which Ellyson carried, coat
the local candidate four delegates.
Mr Ellyson said to-night that he was
not at all discouraged by Maj. Taylor's
big lead. ''He has not carried a county,"
said the State chairman, "that I did not
concede to him from tiie start. Of course
that lead is to his advantage, but the
counties that I count on to carry will
now begin to elect."

The Aggressive Attitude of the
Natives is Very Marked.
Bombay, July 3.?The assassins of
Lieutenant Ayerst, of the commissariat
corps, who was .shot and killed by the
concealed natives, while leaving the gov?
ernor's reception at Ganeshkind on the
evening of June 22, jubilee day, Plague
Commissioner Rand being dangerously
wounded at the same time, are still at
large. The aggressive attitude of the
natives prior to the shootings was re?
marked. There were whisperings of im?
pending disnster to Europeans, and it is
thought that the whole native commu?
nity, including the police, had foreknowl?
edge that something(was|going to happen.
Ou jubilee night a delayed anonymous
letter arrived at Commissioner Band's
bumzalow, saying:
"You will die to-day and the queen

Threatening letters have been received
by other Europeans. During the ptogress
of the planne promineut Hindoos made
violent accusations against the British
scldiers, charging them with ravishing
the women and robbing and ill treating
all who came in contact with them. The
allegations that the Brahmins are re?
sponsible for the murders which have re?
cently occurred are repudiated vigor?
ously. There is tho gravest disquiet in
official circles.
Calcutta,.!uly IS.?In the fighting w hich
took place yesterday In the suburb of
Chltpore between the police aud the tint?
ers many policemen were injured. A
party of twenty-four members of the na?
tive police was surrounded by a mob and
so roughly handled that all of them are
expected to die of the injuries they re?
ceived. The rioters suffered heavily, but
they carried off their dead and wounded.
The rioting arose out of the growing
practice of the Mohammedans of seizing
and refusing to pay rent torjeertain so
called mosques, bui'it contrary to the ten?
ets of the Mohammedan religion, on
ground belonging to infidels.
Tho demolition of a mud hut, ns so
called mosque, led tuthe outbreak. The
rioters were continually reinforced in re?
sponse to telegrams sunt up tne country,
in which they appealed to n'l true Mo?
hammedans to come to the aid of their
co-teligionists.
For forty-eight hours the police and
military were repeatedly obliged to clear
the streets. Detached parties o* Moham?
medans stoned Europeans wherever they
found them, in some cases dragging them
from their glarrles.
All telegraphic lines were cut and the
buildings containing Europeaus were be?
sieged. There were many narrow escapes.
The rioters shouted wai cries and vile
epithets, nudjgrossly insulted the Euro?
pean women.
In several parts of Caluuttita is still
dangerous for Europeans to go anout,
aud it is likely to remain so, owing to
the nature of the compromise by which
the riot was brought to an end.
The trouble i? greatly Increased by the
absence <>f the ^higher ^officials, most of
whom are now in the hills. Those who
remained behind hesitated to undertake
the responsibility of extreme measures.
The result was that the troops were not
allowed to fire or to take the offensive
even when exposed toeveiy kind of in
Dignity and insult. Their behavior an d
self-restraint under the circumstances
were admirable.
A compromise on the plague measures
having been arranged between the author?
ities and the rioters, the disturbances
[ have ceased. The compromise is based
I upon the unconditional surrender of the
land: but it is believed that this conces?
sion will prove a standing menace to the
safety of Koropcnns, as the rioters will
celebrate the victory throughcut all In?
dia.
In spite of tho cessation of the riot- the
situation is regarded as extremely grave
and it is felt that, unless some official is
Invested with plenary powers during the
absence of the goreming authorities
European citizens will *be compelled to
act on their own responsibility.

Evangelist Clarence. Strouse
Awakens the City.
THE UNION TENT MEETING HAS
".CLOSED, WITH THE GRAND RE?
SULT OF OVER SEVEN HUNDRED
CONVERSIONS AND ^RECLAM?
ATIONS?THE EVANGELIST HAS
DONE A WORLD OF GOOD IN
THE WEST VIRGINIA CITY.
Never in the history of West Virginia's
Capital has such a powerful religious
awakening been felt. When Evangelist
Strouse opened up three weeks ago in* the
First Piosbj terian Church no one had
any idea that within a week the interest
would demand larger quarters, and when
the mammoth tent was raised with a
capacity ol 2,500 no one ever imagined
that nearly every night hundreds would
have to stand, hut such has been the
case for the past ten days.
The power of Cud has been greatly
manifested front the very beginning, and
?a deep seriousness seems to have co"?e
upon the whole city.
There has been nothing of au exciting
character about the meeting. It has been
rather quiet and calm, but powerfully
heart searching. All classes of society
have been reaached; many of the leading
society people were in constant attend?
ance and quite a number were converted.
Evangelist Strouse preaches a clean
gospel: he tells the whole truth without
fear or favor; he preaches .lesus Christ
as a complete Saviour, just what the
world is dying to hear.
O, how strong men wept and the faith?
ful smiled with joy as they listened to
the Gospel preached with old time power
sent down from Heaven.
Mr. Strouse's preaching has been heart?
ily endorsed by nearly every preacher and
Christian in attendance. His sermons
are free from anything like fanaticism
and his arguments are clear and sound.
He believes in old fashioned regeneration
with a divine witness and a subsequent
baptism of the Holy Spirit which puri?
fies the heart anil empowers for a holy
life and faithful service.
We know ",of no evangelist who bus
converted as many souls as he. He has
been fearless in his exposition of the
wickedness of the city and has criticised
all classes and creeds. He has awakened
a religious fervor never before felt in the
city and has been instrumental in doing
much good for every church.
Mr. Strouse has been censured by some
for his frankness "of expression, yet no
one can say that he has uttered anything
but the truth. Sucti men as Strousein
the pulpits of our churches would elimi?
nate the hack sliding fraternity and
would lessen luke-wartnness and "hypoc?
risy in tho pews. Awav with the man
who stands iu the pulpit Sunday after
Sunday and dwells upon theological
tenets and dogmas, and omits to teach
his audience how to live, ('reeds are of
little value in the eveiy day walks of life;
the essential doctrine of the Christian re?
ligion is "holy living.''
It is estimated that over 3,000 people
heard the closing sermon Sunday night.
All the churches are receiving mauy ac?
cessions. Charleston is truly t-orry to
see Mr. and Mrs. Strouse leave and will
gladly welcome them again.?Charles?

his failure to closo the saloons. The fol?
