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. Onjho
day of his ' t rn Irom Cuba .Mr. CionnlesJiad
been nppio. li U by W. A Neal and l" II
Weston, whu waro personal friends of L'llerbo
nnd nlso loeal optiomsts Thev naked Gon
zales to supiiort Kllerbe GoiiAiles refused to
do so unless Kllerbo would commit himself in
writlnu to local option, which ufter some few
hitches was done in the following letter wi it
ten to Weston:
"Dkab Ki.ank: In reply to lour Inquiry will
aar I full conour In your view as to tho best
solution of the liquor question, Aur inine
llnc with tho peoplo for three mouths, and
thorough consideration, I have crme to Hie
conclusion that the Dispenury act should bo
so amended as to allow each count) to settle
tho liquor question for itself, nnd havo deter
mined to make such recommendation to the
ne.xt Genoral Assembly, iour frleud,

With such a promise In bis pocket and hav

7ides was sure he had the Governor In his

the Lrovernor refused to lie held. To be tricked

the omuix ov rut: waltz.
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. Its supporters and dotractors.
Tho waltz, like many otlier sooular tilings,
wo Und n.-stln tlio thureh. whero, in tho midst
of barbaric dlsordor. 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

In 1'io.euce It soon became the galllard.
