T1?OS. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 15. Charleston expects lo have her Gala Week this fall. ?' President and Mrs. McKinley are still enjoying their summer outing. The strikes among the miners io the coal region of Pennsylvania continue. j The outbreak of yellow fever in Mississippi has created a panic in the Gulf States. Twelve hundred and eighty-nine bales of cotton were burned in New York on the 5th inst. The bakers say that dollar wheat will make loaves of bread higher in price or smaller in size. Precautions are being taken to prevent the spread of yellow fever to the seaports of our State and Georgia. Gen. James Longstreet and Miss Dortch were married at the Gov ernors mansion in Atlanta on Sept. 8th. The French people are so infat uated with Faure that they are thinking of making him president for life. Experience has proven that in nine years out of ten a farmer loses money by failing to sell his cotton as soon as ginned. If the rise in wheat shall bring about the greater consumption of corn meal, the health of the people will be much benefitted thereby. A railway collision near Em poria, Kansas, on the 9th instant resulted in a terrible loss of life and total destruction of the mail on both trains. Mrs. Varina Jefferson Davis and Miss Winnie Davis have promised soon to visit tho Nashville Exposi tion as honored and distinguished guests of the city. The government of Guatamala is said to be in a bad way, politi cally and financially. President Sarrios has declared himself Dic II W^iii?flFi??ffi iff?^fif?fiiiiMiiiii iminm Georgia is going ?o ask Congress for a million dollars to deepen the Savannah river and so make it i navigable for larger vessels than those that now ply its yellow waves. Oren. M. C.Butler has been in- j inviied to address the Confederate veterans at Dallas, Texas, on the 26th of October prox. There will be a large assemblage of the old war horses of Texas and adjoining states, including Oklahoma and the Indian territory. Charleston admits the existence j in the city of the gold fever, and of so violent a type that nothing but a trip to the Klond}7ke mines will relieve it. There seems little doubt that many of her citizens will avail themselves of the ex pensive remedy, thereby putting much money in the pockets of the men who are getting up the ex pedition to Alaska. The trustees of Furman Baptist University, at Greenville, have elected Prof. Andrew Montague, of the Columbian University, presi dent, to succeed Dr. Manley, who resigned because the trustees did not want him to fill a pulpit and the office of president at the same time. Prof. Montague is professor of Latin at the Columbian Uni versity, and is dean of the faculty. He is a University of Virginia graduate, and a Ph.D. Johns Hop kins University. He is 43 years old, and has a fine reputation as a Latin scholar. Secretary Hester, of the New Orleans Cotton Exchange, recog nized aB the best authority on the cotton business in the South, tells us that the number of mills and the number of spindles in this sec tion have increased, that the visi ble supply of the staple is less this year than last and that the borne consumption i s likely to be greas er. This, coupled with the drought in India cutting off the crop there, and the prosperity of the Western wheat producers enlarging the de mand here, ought to give our pro ducers a good price for their crop. A Popular Divine and Educator. Rev. John R. Riley, D. D., of Pickens, S. C., says : "I cheerfully add my testimony as to the merits of Norman's Neutralizing Cordial. Having used it in my family with great satisfaction, I unhesita tingly recommend it to my friends. Norman's Indian Worm Pellet? never fail. 10 and 25c. Sold by all druggists.

HIS VIEWS OBTAINED On Every Thing from Senator Irby to Reforming Criminals -Carroll and a Water loo Coon. Rochester, N. Y" Sept. 6.-I arrived at Rochester from East Kendal, N. Y., neat Lake Ontario, a jout 8 o'clock this morning and sveut direct to a restaurant foi breakfast. As I walked in I saw a colored man sitting at the table alone waiting to be served. I had not seen a colored man or a black face for several days and I was glad to talk with a brother in the flesh once more. He said to me, as I walked in, "Hello, neighbor, what country is you from?" I told him South Carolina. He laughed and said, "I am from de same country, only I wa'i bred and born in Walterboro and has been here trabling wid a show man three years, but I nobber spect to put des feet on no more southern soil." About this time a white man said to me that Senator B. R. Tillman of South Carolina was in the city and would speak to the workingmen atCharlotto, six miles out on the lake, at 4 p. m. I found out that the senator was stopping at the Powers Hotel, and I said to the white man that I intended to call on him immediately after breakfast. The colored man turned to me and said : "My frieud, let me gib you some go jd advice. You stay way from Tillman, for if you dare to talk wid him de white people will tink you is er domocrack and we dont recognize domocracks in dis city, You stay erway from dat hotel and Tillman. It is all right for you to go to de hotel if you don't talk wid Tillman. De rich white people iu South Carolina don't take up time wid Tillman-nobody but de poor white democracks knows him Now what do you waut wid um?" I told him that I simply wauted to see him, and that I liked some things about Senator Tillman. 'Oh, I see, now. You is er democrack, but de publican party will put you and Tillman out of de United States yet. You want to see Tillman, when he franchised all de niggers and dey can't vote in South Carolin?, *i*A zo % AH?LH j gangs di ober de State I I is done iwid you.*' ; As I walked out of the restaurant in the direction of the hotel, the colored man came to the door and said : "Go on, go on, dem rich white people in that hotel will drive you and Tillman out. I hear dat he is got one eye, I nobber did see him, but I wish to God de oder eye was out." I walked into the hotel and sent my card to Senator Tillman's room No. 123. He sent for me to come up. I met him as he came out of his room to take the elevator. He said, "What are you doing here, Carroll?" I told him that I had been to Lake Ontario and was on my way east and then I would return to South Carolina. He did not look as mean as he did when I called on him at his home, June 1895. He treated me as good ae could be expeoted. I told him that I wanted to talk with him about some matters. He said he was ou his w^ay to the barbershop, but if I wanted to talk with him, we could go down into the pitting room. He took his Beat on the bofa and I sat by him, but I expected him to move further, as he would not like to get near a "nigger," but he was as gentle as a lamb and for one time the lion and the "lamb eat down together. I asked him if he did not think m South Carolina should have a reformatory or house of correction for all juvenile criminals. He said, "Yes, by all means; it made me feel bad to see so many young negro criminals, boys and girls under 20 yeais of age, put in the penitentiary with old^r criminals to be hardened and made worse, and the State should provide for such." He told me how such an institute should be managed, etc., and then said he was ready and willing to do anything in his power to establish it. I showed him a letter writen to me from a promi nent merchant of Greenwood, S. C., offering $100 as a donation foi such an asylum. He said, "That ie good, but you want to go and Bee the governor and tell him, and I believe he will endorse it." I then asked him about the sena torial right in South Carolina, and I if he had seen ex-Senator Irby'e threats in tho northern papers He said, "Yes, but be did not notice that. Irby is simply mad and irritated. I don't want tc fight, for fighting doge and cats do not live loug." "But it is believed in South Carolina that you favored Sehatoi McLauriu in (belate primary." "tfone of tbem know who I favor sd. I did not openly favor au^ ihem. Some of those fellows there in Union tried to pick me that and thus draw me out, bu kept my mouth shut. Some them thought I favored McLan because we voted together, agr on the tariff question, but that1 no sign that I wanted him electe About the time he finished above statement, he said, "L< here, Carroll, you some tir report for papers. I am not talk for papers. You came to my ho at Trenton once and I talked w you freely and a few days aft wards it was published in Gre< ville News. I must confess tl you reported me correctly, and seemed to mo that you put it ji aa I said it, and I have oft thought what a remarkal memory you had, but to und stand that I am not talking : newspapers. He got up a started out the room, but I follow him aud asked questions as walked. "Where is the', barber shop," asked a colored porter. "This way, sir,'' said the porte] He turned and I managed stop him again. "I see that you and the editor The State are together in politic "Well, no ; Gonzales has simj come to me. I have always h< the views on the silver questi that I now have." "Well, sir, one more questit When you came out in 1890 : governor, did you intend then hold a constitutional conventi for the purpose of disfranchisi the colored people, or did y become alarmed afterwards a decided to do it?" "I intended to do it from t jump, because I wanted to sa the State and the white peoplo. knew that the time would coi when the white people would ba different political views and divii and D9groes would just be jura pi from side to sid?, selling thi votes to the highest bidder. Lo at North Carohua now, and Georf will yet come to grief on accou of the negro vote, because me and designing white men will VJ them.*' "But there aro 14,000 wh: men in South Carolina that cai read, but I notice that thev wa to." The senator walked off at th but turned arond and said, *'. Judge Simontou will let tl dispensary alone and not contini to kill it, it will help to educa the negrees as well as the whit in South Carolina, I must go ar shave now." - "IBut ona more wordenen, wi you go nome : " " " "I don't know. I may go on t the St. " Lawrence river so as see that* beautiful country, but will be home this week." With this we parted. Senati Tillman bas been ohanged < converted, as it ie the first time ever talked with him and did ni hear him curse or swear. He seemed to be pleased an happy. One of the colored portei in the hotel, who went t3 carry m card to Tillman, asked, "Who ws that man any how?" I told him it was Senator Til man of South Carolina. "Great God ; if that had of bee a senator for New York State, would have made $2 out of h ii extra by this time. That man ha not given me one cent for auawei ing his calls," R. Carrol Johnson's Chill and Fever a Tonic Cures Fever In One Day. ONE OFJTWO WAYS. The bladder was created for one pur poee, namely, a receptacle for th urine, andas such it is not liable t any form of disease except by one c two ways. The first way is from im perfect action of the kidneys. Th second way is from careless local treat ment of other diseases. CHIEF CAUSE. Unhealthy urine from unhealth; kidneys is the chief cause of bladde troubles. So the womb, like the blad der, was oreated for one purpose, an if not doctored too much is not liabl to weakness or disease, except in rar cases. It is situated back of and ver, close to the bladder, therefore an; ' pain, disease or inconvenience mani rested in the kidneys, back, bladder o usinary passage is often, by mistake . attributed to female weakness o womb trouble of some sort.
