The 3IcDow Verdict Denounced from the
the Pulpit by Tito Prominent Ministers.
Ciiaulestox, S. C, July 21. Tho McDow
verdict was the subject of discourses in
most of tho pulpits here to-day. Dr. Ved
der, at the old Huguenot Protestant Church,
alluding to tho verdict, said: Our city, so
long and so worthily the pride of thoso
whose birth place it is, or who havo learned
to love and call it home; never more dear
than amid the calamities with which
it was visited; no more worthy of
honor than from the spirit with which
they were born and tho strength
with which their desolations were repaired.
had already passed into popular literature
as tho 'City of Disaster,' when its crowning
catastrophe came from its hall of justice.
Whether or not the judgment there ren
dered was technically warranted and it
was reached by 6ome, at least, of unim
peachable integrity,- some, at least, who
might have heen mistaken I think they
were but who would not knowinirlv be
unjust or untrue yet there cannot oe a
doubt that a very large ana lnllucntial
proportion of our community and well
nich our whole land lioia it to
have been there demonstrated that Charles
ton holds nothing more cheap than human
life; that truth uas been stricken down in
what should havo been its very citadel:
that ouo whose loss should havo been a
public calamity has been stealthily done to
death, under encumstauces that sicken tho
heart wnicn hears tue recital ot them.
whilst the wanton and worse than worth
less 'slayer goes forth not only unscathed
of penalty, but applauded by somo as a
well-doer. This is the verdict of a very ex-
tended and outspoken public sentiment."
At Grace Episcopal Church, the fashion
able church of the city, the Kev. Dr. Chas.
Colesworth Pinckuev said: "Life is far too
cheap iu our land. It is sacritied with a
recklessness which would not be tolerated
in Enizland or anv other civilized land
where God's law is known. The result of
the recent trial iu this city seems to fall
very far short of any censure of homicide.
It has failed to condemu crime, to vindi
cate God's law, to protect human life
ncainst the murderous pistol. That human
life has been taken by violence is an ac
knowledged fact, and tho tribunals of
justice have no word of censure for the
ded. Tho slayer is restored to his place
without condemnation of any sort, without
line or any legal disapproval of tho wronir.
The murderer pollutes the land beyond all
other evil deeds, and leaves an iudeliblo
stain in God's sight. Nor can this blond
stain be obliterated until it is washed out
with tho blood of him that sheddeth ir.
Mercj' to the murderer is cruelty to tho
community. Every deed of violence,
whether murder, manslaughter or mob law,
becomes the seed of future crime unless re
pressed by the majesty of the law."

such conduct. The reply only served to
anger him more. The visitor 6imply came
to inspect the new motor. He was from
some engineering school np the country.
and had come to tho city expressly to
see tho much-talked-of invention. Of
course he was disappointed.
'I am much troubled with this sort of
visitors," Mr. Keely said to a reporter;
"they have an idea that we can allow them
access to our shop, when in realitv I am
positively forbidden to talk concerning
the motor." When asked how soon the
motor would be put into practical opera
tion, Mr. Keely said he could not state, but
ventured to say that he is working day
and night, and. would announce something

"Will Try to Punish the Alton.
Chicago, July 21. The Interstate-com
merce Kailroad Association will make an
other struggle for its perpetuation, on
Wednesday next, and will endeavor to
adopt such a course as to meet tho
competition of tho Alton, and at the
same time punish this road for
withdrawing from the association.
In regard to this matter a local paper says:
"The discovery that the Alton has made
live-year contracts with the leading West
ern shippers, and thus anticipated the pro
posed boycott, has caused great dismay
among the association roads, and many of
them now advocate a temporary abandon
ment of the association, and that each
road independently take such action
acrainst tho Alton as'it mav deem necessary.
The idea now is to put the rates down to
unprofitable figures, and then let the Alton
have the business at those rates. Such ac
tion would necessarily lead to an abandon
ment of tho houthwestern Kailway Asso
ciation, as the Alton would at once
withdraw from tho latter, and the other
roads would bo compelled to do likewise
to get free of the restriction
which the agreement places upon them.
will take sid s with the Alton, ana with
draw from the Interstate-commence Kail-
way Association, and also from the Trans-
micsoun Association.

of Virginia. I lived near Mouticello, and.
to tell the truth, didn't think much more of
Tom Jefferson than of any other Virginia'
gentleman, teo one day when a companion
and mysislf found a big bee-tree in thoMon-
ticello woods, we determined to ask Mr.
Jefferson for the honey. Tho next morning.
bright and early, we went up to Mouticello
and sent in our request to the father of tho
Declaration of Independence. He Rent us
word back to come in and eat breakfast
with bun and we could havo tho tree. This
was two propositions that wo could not bo
backed out on, and in we went. We got a
good breakfast lint I couldn't eat much
and then Mr. Jefferson wrote an order to
his overseer to let us have that l--tree.
We nearly sweated ourselves to death cut
ting it down, and got about n. nnnrt nr bulf
gallon of honey. I have seen Tom Jelleron
a thousand times, but that was tho extent
of my acquaintanco with him. He died
