With the exception of two or threo casual

The news ot the oonfllot spread quickly to
neighboring cities, and large bodies ot men ar
rived during tho afternoon from Fnyettevllla

Columbia. 8, 0., Nor. 10. The total number
of negroes lynched and killed on Tuesday's
race riot, at Fhcenlx. Is eight. Two ot tlioso
were killed In the woods, the others wero all
lynohod, and the bodies nro all In one spot near
the Itehobath church. The Coroner Intends to
have them all burled to-morrow.
Late reports to-night Indloate that there Is
likely to bo more and serious trouble It the
negroes attempt to assert themselves In any
way whatever. There may ba a slaughter.
The Sheriff ot tho county to-night tele
graphed tho Qorernor that he has control ot
the situation, but could not control a fresh out
break. The white men aro aroused and many
parties are still scouring the country.
The members ot the Tolbert family against
which the feeling is so Intense have all pretty
well gotten out ot reach by this time. Tom
Tolbert has been moved to Abbeyvllle. It Is
said to-night that his wounds aro likely to
prove fatal.
State Chairman Tolbert has reached Green
ville, and It Is rumored that he Is on his way to
Washington. Jim Tolbert, whose wife Is Post
mistress at McCormtcks. has been made to
leave. '
This afternoon John It. Tolbert, the father of
the Tolbert boys, tho Collector ot the Port at
Charleston and the man who was shot on Tues
day, arrived In Columbia. , He was -accompanied
by his son, Joe. The father
and his son by careful engineering had
managed to shift from one railroad
to another until thoy caught a train going In
the opposite direction from any suspected
and came In tiere by war of Chester.
They did not register at the hotel, but got
a room. Somehow the news was noised about
that ,thcy were here, and Lieut. Watt
Aiken, a Greenwood man, did the verr thing
that perhaps saved their lives, for the city was
full of up-counary people, and they were de
termined to tale summary action. Uent
Aiken, awore out a warrant for their arrest.
Quick action on the part of the police found
the men. The father wished to resist, but was
persuaded not to do so.' Both were heavily
armed. The men'wera hustled to the court
room s their attorney waived a preliminary ex
amination for them and cot an order to send
them to tho State Prison here for safe keeping.
The collector, who was a mass ot wounds
from head to thighs and exceedingly weak,
displayed wonderful nerve and will power and
said he did not wish to go to prison. He was
afraid ot nobody, had done nothing and could
see no reason for It
He gave a graphic story ot the manner in
which he was shot He. said the entire top of
his buggy was shot off. He had not had his
wounds dressed since Tuesday. He declined
assistance when he walked. To-night all Is
quiet here.
The Blot In Wilmington (X. C.) Discussed by
the President and Secretary Alger.
Wabhikoton, Not, lO.r-The presence of Beo
retary Alger at the white House to-day in
close conference with the President for more
than two hours gave rise to a report that Got.
Bnasell ot North Carolina had asked for Fed
eral assistance in suppressing the riot between
the whites and the negroes in Wilmington. It
was learned afterward, however, thst no com
munication whatever had been received from
Gov. Russell, although Secretary Alger did
visit the President for the purpose of discuss
ing the situation in North Carolina. The Sec
retary said to-night that the North Carolina
troop which have not been mustered out can
not be called Into ther service ot the Stato by
Got. Bufjsoll, although these troops were trio
State mllltla before the war with Spam, If the
Governor desires to use these troops It will be
necessary for him to ask the President for
authority to do so. In wbleh case. If the Presl
ent wished to comply, the troops would be
used strictly as a pari ot the Federal army.
There was talk to-day among Republicans of
promptly unseating John D. Bellamy, Con-
Sreasman-eleet from the Wilmington, N, 0.,
Istrlot. This Is due to the outraged feelings
of Republicans over the conduct of Mr. Bellamy
In connection with tha race riot In Wilmington,
lie was an active participant at the meeting
held In that city yesterday, at which resolu
tions were passed declaring for white su
premacy and Indorsing various proposed out
rages, among them the banishment of tha
editor of the colored newspaper. Bellamy
made a violent speech at that meeting,
and to-day the notion proposed, was
taken, accompanied by force and bloodshed.
This has so aroused the sentiment ot Republi
cans that It Is mora than probable that Bella
my's connection, with the Houso will be of ex
ceedingly short duration. If the advtoe of oer
tain prominent department officials, freely
siren to-day ,ls taken, this case will be reported
upon by the Elections Committee Immediately

Too, and Chipped Into the Democratic
Campaign Fund Who Were th " Ftx
rs"T tost Play for a Benatorshlp.
The politicians who frequent tho Fifth Ave
nue Hotel and the Hoffman House and whose
allegiance Is divided between tho two great
parties discussed yesterday the features ot the
campaign for Governor which has just ended.
On the night that Col. Roosevelt was nominated
at Saratoga certain Democrats In that charming:
vlllago mado up a pool In the barroom of the
United States Hotel amounting to $3,000. and
It Is now no breach of confidence to say that,
Edward Kearney and other friends ot Tam
many Hell were Interested In that pool
and that tho odds bet on that evening
wero $5,000 to $3,000 on Eoosovolt.
The folks In the pool were Democrats who
wero trlendty to Kearney and who wero the as
sociates ot ex-Senator John Foley, All hands.
Democrats and Renubltoans, anticipated at that
time that Roosevelt would win by anything
from 100,000 to 200.000 plurality. When the
political experts got to Syracuse and Supremo
Court Justloe Van Wyck had been nomi
nated for Governor. In spite of the
protest ot David B. Hilt, Richard Croker, Son
ator Edward Murphy, Jr., Senator Patrick
Henrr McCarren. Harry'Wnlkor. tho personal
friend and confidant ot Mr. Croker and ot Jus
tice Van Wyck. declared that Mr. Van Wyok
would certainly bo elected over Roosevelt ,
In personal talks with all of these Democrats
thoy did not give any roason for their confi
dence In the elootlon of Mr. Van Wyck except
to say, with mysterious nods and whisper,
that It was "all fixed." These gentlemen did
not say what was fixed or who was fixed : they
simply said that "It was fixed."
All during tho campaign Domocratlo Cam
paign Chairman MoCarren lat the Hoffman
House said. "This Is a cinch." Richard Crokor
repeatedly said at the Hoffman House and at
tho Democratlo Club. "This matter was
flxed two months ago." Senator Edward
Murphy, Jr.. told his personal friends that
" Van Wyok Is to bo oleoted Governor by 75.-
000 plurality: but even It ho gets 175.000
plurality I don't know that Van Wyok's plurality
will help me very much." Senator Murphy's
remarks meant that while he believed Van
Wyck would bo elected by a big plurality, ho
did not bellovothat that plurality would carry
with It the Legislature whloh Is to elect his
successor as a United States Senator.
1 Ono night Col. Archie E. Baxter of Elmlrs,
one ot the Republicans who did some ot the
finest spellbinding work for Eoosovolt, went
Into tho Hoffman Houso to get a bottlo ot
kumyss and there met the Hon. Sylvester S.
Taylor of Elmira. who was very busy with a
bottle of apolllnarls. -
" Toll mo. Bylvester." said Archie to his old
friend Taylor, " what do youthlnk will ba th
result ot this fight?"
"Archie." said Mr. Taylor, as he quaffed an
other flagon of apolllnarls, "Go baok to El
mira, stop your speeches for Boosovelt Quit
making an Idiot of yourself. I jrell you the
thing is fixed: tho Job was put -up more than
two months ago." The Hon. Archie E. Bax
ter, who at this moment Is ths pride
and glory of Chemung county because he Is Its
greatest orator and most sturdy fighter, left
his old friend, Taylor, and told his friends that
ho wondered at Taylor's confidence.
" The issues are all with Roosevelt," said
Baxter at th'e time. "He is an honest man.
He stands on an honest national platform. He
Is a fighter, and yet Taylor tells me this thing
Is flxod against him. I wonder what It lis that
Is fixed. I wondor if ho'lMell me what It Is It I
go back and seo him again.. I Ilko Taylor,
ana he likes me, and I do not believe
that he would say a word to mo that he does
not firmly believe to be the truth." Col. Bax
ter and Mr. Taylor had another conversation,
and again did Mr. Taylor wag his head and
quaff his apolllnarls and repeat his Injunction
to Archie Baxter: " Archie, go book home ; stop
jthe wind-jamming. You fellow are beaten
the matter was all flxed two months ago."
Col. Baxter did not stop his wind-jamming.
He kept right on making conservative and elo
quent speeches for Roosevelt Meantime Mr.
McCarren, Mr. Croker, Mr. Murphy, Charles B,
De Freest clerk of the Democratlo Btato Com
mittee and the personal lieutenant of Senator
Murphy, continued to tell all of tbelr friends,
personal, political and social, that Roosevelt
was doomed because) " this thing has been
fixed against him."
Later on a number of corporations In New
York city seemed to have the Idea that "the
thing had bean fixed against Roosevelt." and
chipped In to tho Democratlo-campaign fund
for Van Wyok. Col. Roosevelt knew all about
this at the time. He knows that certain well
known corporations In Now York el ty which pre
tend to be for sound money, but believed that
"the thing had been fixed against Roosevelt"
ohlpped In their contributions to Van Wyok.
the Demooratlo candidate for Governor, who
voted for Bryan and tree silver In 1800.
Every effort was made during the campaign
to get at the real root of tha confidence ot the
Demooratlo manager in Van Wyok's election
and every endeavor to ascertain the facts con
cerning their oft-repeated statement that "tha
thing has been fixed against Roosevelt"
It Is not yet time. It wis said last night by
Important people, to give the full details of the
conduct ot those who attempted to carry oat
the job against Roosevelt All that mar ba
said now Is that the Demooratlo testimony
during the campaign to the representative of
Tub Bum was: ,
"If Roosevelt gets elected, certain Republi
cans believe that he will send them to jail.
Theee Republican believe that self-preservation
is the first law ot nature, and they believe
that the Legislature is to be Bepublloan and
that Van Wyck as a Demooratlo Governor,
would work In full harmony with the folks who
have asserted all along that 'tha thing has
been fixed against Roosevelt' " a
People Interested In Roosevelt's fight, the
sturdiest fight that haa been made for Gov
ernor Dy any candidate in a great many years,
said last night that Col, Roosevelt Is aware of
the efforts of oertaln people to defeat him
for Governor. Governor-eleat Roosevelt tbey
said. Is (not a vindictive man. but as the
Chief Exeoutlve of the Btat. he will make It
his business to see that tho folks who said dur
ing the campaign that "this thing has! been
fixed against Roosevelt" reoelve just If not
sever treatment CoL Roosevelt It was
added, will not do anything in a hurry.
Most politicians have bean taught to
regard him as an erratla and Impulsive states
man. In his campaign through the State and
In the hundreds of speeches he made he has
demonstrated that certain politicians have
bad an erroneous estimate of his char
acter. His career as a Civil Service
Commissioner, his life as a Police
Commissioner and his great work as Assistant
Secretary of the Navy hare ealmed to a great
extent a naturally strong and determined
spirit In other words, and to use a homely ex
pression of the day, Roosevelt has " broadened,"
Roosevelt Is to broaden still more, but Roosevelt
Is the same old Roosevelt who will not tolerate
dishonesty or even tha shadow ot dishon
esty. And then, finally, thepeople who at
tempted to "fix tilings against Roosevelt"
whether they be Republicans or Democrats,
will find long before he Is Inaugurated In tha
Execotlvo Chamber at Albany that he ha bean
fully Informed about the whol gam. ..
CoL Roosevelt 1 aware of th dost aasela
tlon of certain Republican leader with Richard
Croker. no is aware ot the olose oommunlon
of Interests between certain corporation and
the Democratlo campaigners. Everything Is
to be straightened out Justly and fairly, but at
all times In the Interest ot th people of the
State ot New York.
Just the same, it was the testimony ot all task
ntght that the folks who had "fixed thing
against Roosevelt" were not able to " deliver"
on election day, and furthermore that any
machination going on now In th Interest ot
a oertaln up-State candidate for United States
Senator are thoroughly well understood and
will fall.

WAsnnfOTOS. Not. 10. "The greatest re
sult achloved in this election Is the restoration
of the United States Senate to the Republican
party," said Chairman Babcock this evening.
"Whatever may now happen, that body Is
firmly Intrenched, and Republicanism will
stand like a bulwark between the people and
any effort at Ill-timed or vicious legislation.
Ot oourso, we wanted a Republican House, and
expected It but ot the two the Senate was ot
vastly more consequence. An analysis of ths
Senate shows that after the 4th of March next
there will be a majority for sound money, and '
all that the Republican party stand for. that
cannot be assailed until eight and possibly
tan. year have elapsed.
"If even suoh an unforeseen catastrophe
should happen as tha elootlon ota Populist
House and a Populist President In 1000. the
country would still have the Senate to protect
It from the Idiosyncrasies of that party. The
Senate will be composed after Maroa next of
men who will guarantee th country agalnao
any kind of political upheaval thai might hap
pen. The fallacy of free silver Is wepTaway,
and free stiver legislation will no longer oe
ground out of the 8enatelegislatlvemlll. JThere
can be no tinkering with the tariff by Demo
oratlo tariff, reformers. Legislation will be
along Republican lines. andanalBwJU be oalled
upon all unwise legislation If anyOongres In
the next few rear should attempt such legis
lation. "That suoh a Senate ha been secured la
cause for congratulation, and It position can
not be assailed fa any manner until two year
after the expiration ot the Admlnletratfon stto
ceedlng the present one. The expiration of
Senatorial terms In succeeding sessions will
not, materially interfere with the Republican
majority, so that there 1 every reason to be
lieve the ten years I have named Is an exceed
ingly conservative estimate."

from Populist strongholds In th western part
ot the Btato dealt a deathblow to Republican;
hopes of victory on Governor. Hayward Is
beaten by probably 1.000, but the-Bepublloan
insist that the official count will have to be
mode before they concede th eleotlon of
Pornter, At Populist headquarters a claim
of 5.000 majority tor Poynter was made.
The Republicans win the Legislature by a
narrow margin, probably four on joint ballot
The official oount will have to decide botween
Ieveral olalmants. In tour district the Repub
leans have less than ten majority, and the op
portunities presented for fraud have caused
Watchers to be placed at every eanvass, and
large rewards are offered by tha Republican
to detect frauds, as they fear the Popu
list officials may attempt to seat a ma
jority of tbelr candidates. Much bitter feel
lng Is being engendered, and there may ba
some clasbas. Tna Populists olalm one major

Loatxw. Not. 10. A Central News despatch
from Parts say that Lord Salisbury's speech at
th Mansion House in London last evening ha
bad a calming afteot unon the Frenoh press,
which has adopted a more moderate attitude,
though some paper complain ot finding in the
speech the tones of the vlotor. .
The declaration that England' position for
tho present will remain unaltered In Egypt is
particularly satisfactory.
Roporta of military preparations continue to
be received. Th Matin eays that n meeting of
the Admirals of the French Navy was held yes
terday, at which It was resolved to fit out all ot
the available ships as qutokly as possible. The
meeting was unexpected and was hastily sum
moned. The StandarSi Vienna correspondent tele
graphs an Interview with apromlncnt official,
who says that Lord Salisbury want the assist
ancs ot the United States to drive Russia out ot
China. With such an object thera will certainly
bo war shortly, and the Spanish question would
be a decidedly better pretext than the Bahr-el-Ghazal

folly ot fighting to keep America out ot the
The Aandarrfrays: "For the purposes ot the
States which, like Great Britain, are bent on
preventing the vast domains ot China from be
coming the prosorve ot a single European
State, nothing could be mora welcome than

change the situation in Egypt Newfoundland
was a more dangerous question than the Egyp
tian matter.
He thought the Chinese question was less
critical in view ot th growing sense of the
Identity of the interests ot the United States,
Oermnny, Japan, and England.
Tha Paris correspondent of tho Times
quotos prominently a despatch to the Libert
by Its London correspondent In which,
the latter says that a foreign diploma)
. drew his attention to Lord Salisbury's refer
ence to th United States and declared
that It was " Blmply a question ot an agreement
between the English and American Govern
ments as regards th Philippines."
He added that this agreement was directed
against Germany, and that Emperor William,
whohadbeen warned ot the dagger, had de
cided to atop at Cadlx in order to testify his
good will toward Spain. v
It Is thought that tho Continental news
papers place undue stress upon Lord Salis
bury's reference to the United States. They
certainly exaggerate Its Immediate signifi
cance. Tho writers jn Berlin and Vlenna"eem to
hare seized tbo'dceaslon to push tha old scheme'
of an antl-Amerioan -European coalition.
The olosest inquiries In London do not estab
lish any connection between England's prepara
tions tor war and the Philippines question, yet
Viscount Cranborne's visit to the American
Embassy to-day was assuredly of a pollrJoal
nature. He himself said that the matter was
"of sotpo Importance."
There Is nothing In the present ordinary
Anglo-American relations to warrant the unu
sual visit following ths Cabinet council unless
It was the Philippines.
It It Is the Intention of Europe to Interfere
with the American policy there Great Britain Is
certainly as willing to offset Its opposition with
her support as she was at the beginning of the
war. On th other hand the Chinese situation'

aware that the ' acquisition by them ot
the Philippines would be very dis
pleasing to all the European powers, with
tne probable exception of Great Briataln.
But Lord Salisbury said that the ap
pearanoo of America in European and Asl
atlo polities could not but conduce to
the Interests ot this country, meaning obvi
ously that the United States and Great Britain
will stand together in a friendship based on a
community of alms. Interests and sentiment
Bxnmr, Nov. 10. The National Zeitunj
commenting on Lord SallaburyM speech at the
banquet given by the Lord Mayor of London
last night, says it regards his hint as to the
future relation between Great Britain and
the United States' as the most significant
feature of his remarks.
There Is an Inclination liars to eonneot Great
Britain's war preparations with th Philippine
question. The German Government It Is be
lieved, will maintain Germany's Interests In tha
Islands, these Interests betngohiefly ot a com
mercial and polltloal nature, but so long; as
these are not prejudiced Germany will have no
reason to Issue from her reserve. Neverthe

There was a rumor in Wall street yesterday
ithat Mr. Plant had had a stroke at apoplexy,

stand thoroughly every move made by th W
Spaniards. It Is not denied hero that matter j1
In Pari have assumed a serious aspect. Wash- Mi
tngton officials say they have seen nothing yet ydft
to change their opinion that the Spaniards will W
eventually aoqulesoa In tho Amorioan position '
without going to the extreme of bre'axlng oft Jh
the negotiations. That is not an unalterable 'ffl
oplnton. however, for the officers ot the Ad- L
ministration realize that the Spanish authorl- M
ties aro capable ot making some foolish move W
without regarding tho oonsequenoes. The -?S
view of the Administration was very well ex-
pressed to-day by one ot Its high officials in ths - Sk
remark: rK
"Tne Spanish Government will not break oft .
the negotiations if they are men of sense, which !
I sometimes vert much doubt" M
with the knowledge thatoameto-day that the j
Republicans would bavo a sate working ma- :Jfi
jorlty In tho next House, tho President and his JR
Cablnot have a more comfortable feeling con- Jg

aware of the store which tha Spaniards placed Ire
on the result ot the elections in this country. sf
and It the Demoorats had been successful a
more defiant attitude would undoubtedly have ?:.
been assumed by the Bnanlsh Peaoe Oommls- 'M
sioners,who had let it be known that they ii-
would construe Demooratlo success as a re- '?
pudlatlon of the Administration' expan- f
Ion policy. The election ot CoL Boose- M
velt Is particularly pleasing, to the Ad- m
ministration, on account of the marked p
Jffeotltwlll nave on Spain's representatives. '
t appears that the Spanish Commissioners re- 53
(rawed the election In New York as the test of $:
the expansion Idea. CoL Roosevelt had mods M
that a prom lnent feature ot his campaign, and, ,m
besides, the Spaniards regarded him as the ,
typical representative ot the Administration's .ffi
war and post-bellum policies. His election Is K,
therefore regarded as a triumph for the ex- .ft
panslonlsts. and is particularly marked onap- ju
count of the previous understanding In Ad- k
