South Carolina Is very much stirred ovor a controversy that Is koIiuj on between N tl flonrnlos, editor of the Columbia .sfnfe. and Oov. William II. Kllerbc. Tho Ho has boon passed, and as both men are hot-tempered nml Plucky, a personal encounter Is feared. Jinny in em bo rs of tho Lioulslaturo seem deter mined on Introducing n moasure to Imponch tho Governor. Tho cause of the controversy dutos back to last summer's canioalKn, when even candidates for tho oflloo spoke In overy county of tho, "State, each telllmr the peoplo why ho should bo oloctod Governor. Threo ot those. Kllerbo. Watson nnd Arolier, ran on n dlsponsnry platform: ono. I'ontherstono, ran as a prohibitionist, and two, Schumport and Oeorito I) Tillman, nn ax-Cotiurossmnnnnd n brothor of I'ltchfork Ken, announced them selves In favoi of local uptlou. lutm in, who has run tor ovory olllce from County Coroner to United States Senator, also canvassed tho Htuto on his merits nnd n t t model bloclc. The election was so closelr contested that for several days It was not known who would bis In tho socond primary, hut the fullrotiiiiis placed Kllerbe and FeatlieiHlono in the lead Thu vote iras vorr lutoiostint: in that the local ', option "to held tho balance of power. Neither Lllorbo nor l'cnthorstoua could win without It. Hut tho probabilities wore that It would ko for prohibition as imiiust the dispensary, and the dispensary advocates wore flllod witli dismay. Their defeat nioant the brenklni: up of the machine, with n 1 Its patronnuo, freo liquor samples for tho clan and rebates for some one In Utopia. Mr. Oonwiles had spent the summer In Cuba fltchtiai: with tho insurcents nnd did not reach Columoia until a few days before the second primary. Ho announced that, havlne no com prehensive Idea of the situation, ho would bo "hands off" in rttrnrd to the eUctlou. Then the next day he declared foi Kllerbe. Such a quick chauao aroused comment. Many sus pected a deal of soma kind. baoausoUonzales had always boomed local option, and hllerbe waa committed to'the dlsiwnssry. Although it was well known that Ullorbo eould not afford to lose the bupport of the machine, tho Wnfe's chnnue of attitude convinced tho majority of local option me i that Kllerbe was nt hoart one of them. To this ho owed his election. JNothluu was said about liquor problems un til tho Governor'.snununl mesi-aBocnnie reeom mendinc tlio coutitiuauco of tho Dispensary law in its essential features. Then the Mate published an editorial article over the signa ture of Mr Gonzales, showing that a political trade had been mado and brokon.

An Krnlntlnn from n RnllEtnus Dnnce How It liecnmo rnthlnnnbln In Germany, from thi rarltlan. The opinion most generally conceded Is that France received tho waltz from Gormany toward tho closoof tho eighteenth century, and among many bollefs this contains tin most troth: but the iustlco of attributing to Oor manlo Influenco tho rsnalssnnce of tho waltz In Franco doos not of necessity verify tho statement thnt It had Its origin In Germany. Like everything else thnt touches humanity, whero nothlugisborti spontanoonslybutevery thlng is tho product of n sories of successive evolutions, '. lie waltz did not cmnnnto In Its present form from tho ornln of n dnncing mas ter. Long before 1780, tho tlmewheu wo find It llrst mentioned under this name, its graceful curves nnd euden-ns woro displayed on the village greens ns well ns In thn golden salons ot palaces: It hill Itsnllori.iitlvosof vogue and neglect.

It serves to trace tho union between ancient clvlllrntlon nnd that of the mhldln ages The sacred dnnce uf tho pa gans Is preserved ton coitnln isiltit In I hrls tlnn rites: it is transformer! to a series of rev olutions made to the sound of thn tambourine. St Isldoio, Archbishop of .Seville, born about A. D WO. was Intrusted hv the Council of To ledo with the revision of the liturgy as It was then practiced In thn Unman Church. In whkh there was a mm pontine dance The Cjuticll decided to ndopt (ho Isldorian llturgv In nil tspaln. and it dil1crd but little from thnt used In other countries nt Hint tlmo. '1 bin I lito. celebrated before the eighth century, 1 when the Moors llrst invaded Spain, was still ! colcbruted by the Christians in tho seven chiirehis of Toledo, wlii"h tho Moors aban doned after their enpturo of tie city, and wnrt after that tlmo called the Moorish rite. Uiilsvvas known nnd employed In 1'rovence ami Italy '1 ho tambourine In uso in this re ligious dance was called I ) St. Isidore "molt Io do svmphonle, ' and evidently corresponded to tlio instrument which. In tho ancient sacred dances, accompanied tho flute, a sort of bag pile invented two centurios 11. C. And thus, ns the religious dance of tho middle nges Is allied to the unclent sacred dance, so the w1t7. is an evolution of this religious dance, having pissed through mnny changes bclore arriving nt its picsenl form in Hie eleventh century, when tho Gregor ian rite supplanted tbo Moorish rite, the dance dlsnppennd Irom Hie Church. It appeared vety quickl) In society under the nnmo of curole, a word derived Irom the Latin imnler: nlterwtird undor thnt of hasse-danco. In which the grand prelates, kings and dignitaries did not disdain to join, comnosoil of three pnrts, tivo very slow and one moro lively. The people and nt this tlmo. all who were not of the clergv or royalty were the people used the hitter part, called tho tonrdion, nlik h. lighter nnd moro lively, appealed to them, and, llttlo liy little, it became changed. In Italv it was first separated from the rest under the name of romanesca. and from thore It passed to Provence and southern Germany, but In each uf these countries It vvns diversi fied and developed according to the cnarac terof the people. In 1'io.euce It soon became the galllard. and this name Indicates the character of the transfoi inatlon llvo hundred vears later they danced the volte, whleli vvns. in turn.n transformation of tlio gablard. The measure was tornars like the hitler, and might be designated technically thus- two steps, a skip, feet together, nauso The man first faced tnu opposite couple, then skli ped on the left foot, turning tho left shoul der toward them: repeating this fourtlmep. he agiin faced the othor dancers: as for tno Indv. her movements wero reduced to em brniing as tightly as possible the neck of hot cavalier. As tun be t-ecn at once, this dance resembled tho waltE in threo wa)s. It was danced In three time, It vvas tlio Mist dance In which n tuin wnsmade.'and the llrst In whleli thoduneor embraced his partner. Tho Intter. in fact, did not touch Hie ground: tlio cavalier held her suspended with his left arm us he executed tho four movements described above. t the court of Nalols the volte was n favor ite dunce, especially with Catherine do Medici, whlln Henry II was i harmed with the i'snlm whli h Clement Mnrot set to an air of thn volte, thinking, perhaps.

Though It grentl) resembled tlio waltz, the latter did not descend fiom It directly, but was rather the vuiinger sister of it In Inet, the romnnescn. transported, as we have said, to I'roveneo and southern Germnnv. was developed In those countries very differ ently; in Provence into tho gnlllardand volto. while tho Germans, more drenmv nnd slow, changed tho romanesca into tho german and wait.;.
