his round the world journey, has so

through the press today "Tho Royal

Solomou's Song V, I "I am come lito

Shenstone, the poet. Ils writings have

but his garden, "The Leasowes," will
be immortal, To the natural advantage
of that place was brought the perfection
of art. Arbor and terrace and slope and
rustic temple and reservoir anm urn and

and yew and hazel put forth their richest
foliage. There was no life more diligent,
no soul more ingenious than that of Shen
stone, and all that diligence and genius
were brought to tile adornment of that
one treasured spot. He gavo 1300 for
it. He sold it for A17,000.
And yet I am to tell you of a richer
garden than any I have mentioned It

"Oh," ssys somebody, "I dlon't see
what your garden ol the church has

come from, and your hospitals, and your
institutions of merc3? Christ pla'itod
every one of them, lHe plantedi thorm

to Bartimcus, lhe laid the cornerstone of
every blin~d asylum that has ever been
built. When Christ soothed the demo
niac ol Galilee, he laid the cornerstone
of' every lunatic asylum that has ever
been estaiblished. When Christ said to
the sick man, ''Take up thy bad and
walk,'' he Jaid the cornerstone of every
hospital the world has ever seen. When
Christ, said, "'I was in prison, and ye
visited me,"' lie laid the cornerstone of
every prison reform aussociation that has

is a glorious garden and it is lull of ruit.

to fill all the baskets of earth and heaven.
.I have not told you of the better tree
in this garden and of the better fruit. It
was planted just outside Jerusalem a
good while ago. When that tree was
plantedlt wa so split and bruised and
bredmen said nothing would ever
grow upon it, but no sooner had that
tree been planted than it
budded and blossomed and fruited, and
the soldiers' spears were Only the clubs
that strtuck down that fruit, and it fell
into the lap of the nations, and men be
~an to pick it up and eat It, and they
found it an antidote to all thirst, to all
poison, to all sin, to all death--the
smallest clusterlarger than the famous
one of Eschol, which two men carrIed
on a staff between them, if the one
apple in Eden kIlled iLhe race, this one
cluster of mercy shall restore It.
Aain, the chnrch In my iert Is ap
propriately called a garden because It Is
thoroughly irrfgated. No garden could
prosper long without plenty of water. I
have seen a garden in the midst of a
desot, yet blooming and luxuriant. All
around was dearth and barrenness, but
there were pipes, aqueducts reaching
from this garden up to the mountains,
and through these aqueducts the water
came streaming down and tossing up
into bonutiful fountaius until every root
and leaf and flower was saturated. That
is like (he church. The church is a gar
den in Iho tnidst 01'a great desert of sin
and suifferite. It is well Irrigated, for
"our eyes are onto thn hiullp, f-om
whence c ometh our e From1Lhe
mountains ol God's strength there flow
down rivers of gladness. There is a
river the stream wheroof shall make glad
the city ol'our God. Preaching the gos
pel is one of these aqueducts, The il
blo is aother. Baptism and the Lord's
supper are aqueducts. Water to slake
the thirat, water to restore the faint,
water to wash the unclean, water tossed
high up in the light of the sun of right
eousnees showing us the rainbow around
the throno. Oh, was there ever a garden
so thoroughly irrigated? You know the
beauty of Versailles and ( hatsworth
depends very much on the great E upply
DI' water. I camo to the latter place
(Chatsworth) one day when strangers
ire not to be admitted, but by an in
ducement, which always seemed as ap
plicable to an Englishman as an Amer
ican, I got in, and then the gardener
went far up above the stairs of stone and
turned on the water. I daw it gleaming
on the dry pavement coming down
from step to step; until it came so near
I could'hear the musical rush, and all
over the high, broad .tairs it came
foaming, flashing, roaring down until
sunlight and wave in gleesome wrestle
tumbled at my feet. So it is with the
church of God. Everything comes from
above-pardon from above, joy from
above, adoption from above, sanctilca
tion from above. Oh, that now God
would turn on the waters of salvation
that they might flow down through his
heritage and that this day we might
each find ;our places to be "Elims,"
with 12 wells of water and threescore
and ten palm trees.
Hark, I hear the latch at the garden
gate, and I look to see who is comingi
1 hear the voice of Christ, "I am come
into my gardem." I say: "Come in, 0
Jesus; we have been waiting for thee
Walk all through these paths. Look at
the flowers; look at the fruit. Pluck
that which thou will for thyself."
Jesus comes into the garden and ip to
that old man and touches him and
says: "Almost home, father. Not many
more aches for thee. I will never leave
thee. I will never forsake thee. Take
courage a little longer, and I will
stand thy tottering steps, and I will
soothe thy troubles and give thee rest.
Courage, old man." Then Christ goes
up another garden path, and lie
comes to a soul in trouble and says:
"Peace; all is well! 1 have seen thy
tears-, I have heerd thy prayer. The
sun shall not smite the by day, nor the
moon l night. The Lord shall
preserve thee from all evil. ie
will preserve thy soul. Courage, ()
troubled spirit!" Then I see Jesus
going ip another garden path, and I
see great excitement among the leaves,
and I hasten tip that garden path to see
what Jesus is doing there, and, lo, he is
breaking off flowers, sharp and clean,
from the steam, and I say, "Stop, don't
kill those beautiful flowers." ie turns
to me anl says: "I have come into my
garden to gather lilies, and 1 mean to
take these up to a higher terrace and
for the gardhon around my palace, and
there I will la~nt them imd~ in better
altr. They shall put forth brighter
lealves and~ sweeter redolence, and no
frost shall touch them forever." And
I looked up into his face and said:
"Well, it is his garden, andl lhe has a
right to (10 what lhe wvill with it. Thy
will be dlone"-thie hardest prayer a
mnan ever made.
I notice that the fine gardlens some
times have high fences around them,
and .I cannot get, in. It is so wvith the
king's garden. The only glimpses you
over get of such a garden is when the
king rides out in his splendid carriage.
It is not so with this garden the kIng's
garden. I1 throw wide open the gate
andI tell you aill to comei in. No mon
opoly in religion. Whosoever will, may
choose now between a dlesert andi a
garden. Many of yen have triedl the
garden of this world's dlelight. You
have found It has been a chagrin. So it
was with Theodore Hook, H~e made
all the world laugh. lie makes us
laugh nlOW when we read his poems,
but lie could not make his own heart
laugh. While in the midet of his fest
ivItIes, lhe confronted a looking glass,
and lie saw himself and saidi: "There,
that is true. I look just as I tam, done
up In body, mind and purse." So it was
with Sh~nstone, of whose garden I told
you at the beginning of my sermon.
H e sat down amid~those bowers and
saidI: "I have lost my road to happiness
I am angry and envious andi frantic ana
despise everything around me, just as
it becomes a madman to do." Oh, ye
weary souls, come into Christ's garden
today and pluck a little heartseasel
Christ is the only rest and the
pardon for a perturbed spirit.
Do you not think your chance
has almost come? You men and we
men wno have been waiting year and
after year for some good opportunity
in which to accept Christ, but have
postponed it 5, 10, 20,80 years, do you
not feel as if now your hour of deliver
anice and salvation had come ? Oh, man,
what grudge hiast thou against thy
poor soul that thou wvilt not let it be
saved ? I feel as if salvation must come
now to some of your hearts,
Some years ago a vessel struck on the
rocks. They had only one lifeboat. In
that lifeboat the passengers and crew
were getting ashore. The vessel had
foundered and was sinking deeper, and
deeper, and that one boat could not
take the passengers very swiftly. A
little girl stood on the deck, waiting
for her turn to get into the boat, The
boat came and went-came and wont
but her turn did not seem to come.
After awhile she could wait no longer,
and she leaped on the taifrail and then
sprang into the sea, crying to the boat
mnan: "Save me nexti Save me next!"
Oh, how many have gone ashore into
God's mercy, and yet you are clinging
to the wreck of sin!Others have accept
edl the pardon of Christ, but you are in
peril. Why not this morning make a
rush for your immortal rescue, crying
until Jesus shall hear you and heaven
and earth ring with the cry: "Save me
nextl" "Save me next!"

Votes itgiht at Last.
WASAINOTON, July 3.-The Senate
met at 10 a. in., in continuation of yes.
terday's logislativr session by virtue of
a recess taken last night. That obvia.
bed all delays Incident to the formali
ies of the regular opening of a new
lay. The tariff bill was taken up at
once and action on amendments of the
committee of the whole occupied the
entire day's session.
First came the motion made by Mills
on Monday evening to place burlaps
and grain bags made therefrom on the
free list. It was carried by a vote of
28 to 7. Next came the famous collars
and cuffs amendment, fixing the duty
on these articles at 30 cents per dozen
and 30 per cent. advalorem, and on
shirts at 50 per cent., equivalent, ac
cording to a statement made by Chand
ler, to an advalorem rate of from 80 to
125 per cent. That amendment was
agreed to (after a couple of satirical
speeches directed against the junior
Senator from New York, Murphy) by
a vote of 43 to 5.
Then the great wool schedule came
up for action, Sherman offering an
amendment to place wool on the dutia
ble list at 80 per cent. advalorem. The
longest discussion of the day took
place on this proposition-appeals be
ing made by Republican Senators to
Democratic Senators from wool pro
ducing States to supply even two votes
for the amendment which would be
enough, with the Populists' votes to
carry it. But these appeals fell on
deaf ears. There was not a single de.
sertion from the Democratic ranks on
the question of wool. The two Popu
list Senators who usually act with the
Democrats, Allen and Kyle, did not
vote; and the amendment was defeated
-yeas 32, nays 37. Wool therefore re
mains on the free list. The committee
amendmet, placing bituminous coal
on the dutiable list at 40 cents a ton
and coal slack at 15 cents was agreed
to by a vote of 57 to 0. The six were
Allen, Hill, Irby, Kyle,Mills and Peffer.
The committee amendment which
had been originally offered by Hil), ex
empting the salaries of the President
of the United Sta'es and of the judges
of the United States from the Income
tax, was rejected after a brief struggle,
by a vote of yeas 34, nays 36-ten De
mocrats having voted for it and six
Republicans and thre Populists
against it. The date when the bill is
to go into effect, was, on motion of
Jones, fixed at August 1st, 1894--with
the understanding if necessary a later
day can be fixed hereafter.
Barbed wire was a subject of some
dispute. An amendment had been
agreed to in the committee of thu
whole that barbed wire for fencing,
should be admitted free of duty. This
amendment was rejected; and one of
I erred by Allen (Pop.) of Nebraska to
place wire for fencing on the free list
was aiso rejected-yeas 32; nays 38.
And so wire remains on the dutiable
list, at rates according to gauge. Mica
was taken off of the free list and put
on the dutiable list at 20 per cent, ad
valorem upon motion of Ransom. .
Ransom's amendment prevailed by a
vote of 40 yeas and 28 nays. Some
amusement was had on the floor by the
personal appeal of Ransom to Senators
to support his amendment. H is three
minute speech in favor of his proposi
tion was the only one he has made on
the tariff question and after ho had
concluded the Senators gathered about
him and promised support. After the
vote, Ransom interrupted Morgan for
the purpose of', he said, "completing
his amendment," which he proceeded
to do by moving to strike mica from
the free list, where it had been placed
by the committee. This was agreed to
amid much laughter, which was only
increased when Chandler crossed the
aIsle, invaded the ranks of political
enemies and graspedl Ransom by the
hand and congratulated him upon his
victory for the mica industry of North
Carolina and New Hampshire.
Morgan offered an amnendment to
come in as live additional sections at
the end of the bill, aimed at trusts and
conspiracies in restraint of tradie andI
commerce or to increase the market
price of imported articles, 11e made a
sp~eech in explanation and defense of
the amendlment, which would have the
affect, lie said, of repressing "those
trusts in all their multiplied hideous.
ness." The amendment was agreed
to without divjision. The first section
of it is as follows:
"Section 75. That every combinat ion
conspiracy, trust, agreement or con
tract is hereby declared to be contrary
to public policy, illegal and void, when
the same is ma-Jo by or between two
or more persons or corporations, either
of whom is engaged in importing any
article from any foreign country into
the United States and when such comn
bination, conspiracy,'trust, agreement
or contract Is Intended to operate in
restraint of lawvful trade or free com
petition in lawful trade or commerce or
to increase the market price in any
port of the United States of any article
or articles imported or intended to be
imported into the United States, or of
any manufacture, into which such im.
ported article enters or is intended to
enter. Any person who is or shall
hereafter be engaged in the importa
tion of goods or any commodity from
any foreign country in violation of this
section of this act, or who shall com
bine or conspire with another to violate
the same is guilty of a misdemeanor
andi on conviction thereof in any court
of the United States such persons shall
be fined in a sum not less than $100 and
not exceeding $5,000 and shall be fur
ther punished by imprisonment in the
discretion of the court for a term not
less than three months nor exceeding
twelve months.
Allen then offered the amendment to
the sugar schedule of which Jones gave
notice yesterday, but which ho (lid not
at any time today offer in the Senate.
Jones auked Allen to withdraw It, but
he declined. It was then laid on the
table on motion of Iharris-yeis 50;
nays 22.
At 8:45 p. mn., a suggestion was made
by D~olph that the Senate should either
dispose of the bill quickly or let it go
over till TIhnrsday. le should hate to
see the national day desecrated by the
passage of such a bill. "Nothing
could be so painful to me," Iharris re
marked satirically, "as to give the
slightest pain to the Senator from Or
egon. Bunt I think that the bill1 should
be disposed of before the Senate ad
journs-and I hope that every Senator
will stay here until it is disposed of."
These amendments were agreed to:
Increasing the duty on files (paragraph
141) from 80 cents per dozen to 35 cents;
making lie duty on type metal (para
graphhl7l) % cent per pouud on the
leadcontained therein, and 15 per cent.
on new type; reducing the duty on
cleaned rice (paragraph 193) from 1
cent per p ound to 8.10 of a cent. Pet
tigrew offered an amendment providl
ing for a tariff commission. Reected
-yeas 80- .nays 88. An amendment
was adhn~ to nen of the income tax
sections, on motion of Hill, approved
by Vest,.providing that all State, conn
ty, municipal and town taxes paid by
incorporations shall be included in
their operating and business expenses.
At 10 p. m., there Nas an immenee
concourse of spectators in the galler
les, most of them ladies, and all wav
ing fans industriously, for the atmos
phere of the chamber was hot and
sweltering. Senators - evinced great
impatience at the unnecessary delay oc.
casioned by the offering of amendments
which had no show of being adopted,
but which occupied time in taking
the yeas and nays. There was much
excitement as to the result of the final
vote and a rumor prevailed that the.
bill would be beaten. Thechairman of
the IIonse committee on ways and
means-Mr. Wilson-and Representa
tive McMillin and Springer were Inter
ested spectators of the proceedings and
eager watchers of the last struggle.
At 10 p. in. the bill was read the
third time, and then Mr. Smith (Derm.)
of New Jersey rose and addressed
the Senate in a set speech against the
"socialistic income tax," as he charact
erizel it; but he should vote for the
pending bill, because he is a Democrat.
11111 declared his continued antago
nism to the bill as a rag-bar produc
tion. a crazy quilt combination, a
splendid nothing. The close of his
speech was applauded. The calling of
the roll on the final passage of the
tariff bill began at 10:25 and the vote
resulted; Yeas 39; nays 34. Caffery
voted no, and after the vote had
been completed, made a brief ex
planation as to why he had done so,
and then changed his vote to one in
favor of the bifl.
Irby voted foir the bill, and Blanchard,
who was denied the privilege of ex
plaining his votLe, un an objection,
contented himself with a simple "yea."
11111 was the only Democrat to vote
agninst the bill. The 1opulists, Allen
and Kyle, voted for it, and Pedfer
against it. Following is the vote in
Yeas-Allen, Bate, Berry, Blackburn,
Blanchard, Caffery, Call, Cockrell,
Coke, Daniel, Faulkner, George, Gib
son, Gorman, Gray, Harris, Hiunton,
Irby, Jarvis, Jones of Arkansas, Kyle,

The Vice president appointed the
following managers on the part of the
Senate as conferees: Voohees, Harris,
Vest, Jones, Sherman, Alltson and
It was no secret among those who
had the confidence of the leaders on the
Republican side that they expected to
defeat the tariff bill and that they
igured on a majority of one against it.
The first break on the 1)emocratic side
came who the name of Caffery was
called and lie responded with an em
phatic "no." Ills colleague, Blanchard,
did, not respond to llls naie at all
when it was called.
Irby, it was claimed, had promised
to vote against the bil1, but when his
name was called, he responded In the
affirmative, and all hope of defoating
the bill vanished.
Caffery, then after a "rief explana
tion and a protest against the way his
people had been treated, changed his
vote to one in favor of the bill, and
Iilancnard voted in the same way.
Had Irby stood by the combination, tihe
two laouisana Senators would hove re
mnainedl firm and the vote would~ have
been 317 to 34 against the bill.

COL .UMHi A, S. C., July 5.--The judi
ciar-y committee of tihe State Parmers'
Alliance, consisting of Norman Elder
of York, 0o1. D). K. N orris of Anderson,
thle Rev. J1. A.Siight or Newberry
and .John Gadson of Alken, met in this
city yesterday for the purpose of in
vesigating the management of the
State Alliance Exchange by Col. D. P.
D~uncan. Tile investigation was asked
for by Col. D~uncan.
The committee, after a session of
several hours, during wvhich it went
through all of the books of the ex
change, made up its report, andI will
for ward it to the president of the Alli
anice, Senator WV. D. Evans. The re
port will sho0w that Col. lDtmean's man -
agement of tihe exchange has been en
tirely satisfactory and that none of thle
charges brought against him are true.
Fgor some time the Piedmont Ilead
light, the organ of Stanyarne Wilson,
who 1s opposing CoilDuncan for Con
gress in the Fourth dIstrict, has been
making all kinds of charges against
the manager of the State Alliance E~x
change. In the issue of ,June 2 several
columns were dlevoted to these changes,
and some of them were particularly
Blecause the Alliance Exchange ad
vcrtises its 'price list in the Cotton
Plant at a cost of $480 a year, Gantt
charged that this money had been used
b~y Col. Duncan to b~uy out the Cotton
Plant as his organ to be used for his
political purposes. Gantt also charged
that Col. D~uncan tried to extort from
the Alliancemen a profit of $1.85. per
ton more for guano than private par
ties bought tile same goods for. Gantt
also charged that Col D)uncan had been
selling sewing machines at $19.75 which
had been bought by outside parties
elsewhere for less than $16. and which
Duncan had confessed had cost only
$17. IHe charged that Duncan had been
making $2.75 clear profit on each
machine, and that not a nickel of the
profit had gone -into tihe treasury
of the exchange. lHe charged
also that Duncan had been
lending out money from the Alliance
treasury and1 pocketing the interest.
Gantt then made tile charge that Dun
can used his railroad passes, in vibla
tion of the State law, to travel on busi
ness, lie scored him, too, far allowing
the railroads in this State to charge
higher rates than are allowed in Geor
gia. The rest of the charges were (1e
voted to Col. D~uncan's record1 as a
I nx )anger.

The Qrop Repor
COLUMItA, 1. 0., June 4.--The fol
lowing Is the crop ioport for the past
The weather and crop conditions
have changed materially and for the
better during the past week. The tem
peraturo ranged nearly notmal, being
slightly below on the immediate coast,
and slightly in the excess in the inte
rior. Friday, June 29th, was very hot
with temperature between 90 and 100
over the entire State, except on the
immediate coast. The excessive heat
was general over the entire cotton re
gion of the United States, the average
maximum of 132 stations being 97 de
grees on that date. The sunshine was
below the usual amount, averaging be
tween 60 and 70 for the whole State,the
deficiency having a tendency to injure
cotton. The rainfall was wide
spread, quite general, and in places ex
cessiye. Drought conditions have been
narrowed down to portions of Claren
don, Fairfield, Orangeburg, Florence
and Williamsburg counties.
Overflows of creeks and washing
rains destructive to crops occurred in
Edgefield, Anderson, Abbeville, and
Oconee counties. Destructive wind
storms occurred in Barnwell, Laurens,
Newberry, Lancaster and Fairfield
counties. Destructive hallstorms oc
curred in Barnwell, Laurens, Newber
ry, Lancaster and Fairfield counties.
Destructive windstorms in Pickens,
Greenville, Edgeleid, Laurens, Union,
and Anderson counties; the storm of
the 23th being especially severe in
Greenville and Pickens.
Giving due consideration to the areas
of damage by wind, hail, and overflows
of creeks and to areas of insufficient
rain,the crops are vastly improved and
are in excellent condition.
Early corn much improved, but was
too far advanced toward maturity to
receive much benefit from the changed
conditions and it is estimated will
not make much more than half a crop.
Late planting very good on bottom
lands, beginning to be grassy where
not too wet to work.
Cotton growing rapidly and fruiting
well, except in a few localities where
it is going to weed; needs more sun
shine, beginning to get grassy where
to- wet to work. Rice improved Our
ing the week and doing fairly well, but
there is still danger from salt water in
Georgetown county, owing to the low
stage of the river. A larger acreage
of peas being planted than ever before
in many sections, but seed is reported
scarce. Planting of sweet potato slips
continues. Melons ripening fast but
individual melons as well as the total
crop will be smaller than usual. Pastu
rage growing very fast.
The crop prospects summed up are
more encouraging now than they have
been at any time this year, but would
be still further improved by a rainless
week with a high percentage of sun
The following placas reported rain
falls above the weekly normals:
Columbia, 1.84; iHardeville, 1.86; St.

(1. (apers was asked today b~y a .Journ
al reporter as to what further replies
he had received from county chairmen
ila reference to General intler's request
for separate boxes andl whether. Cnatr
man Nettle's renly was a fair sam pie
of the replies, Ile said the reply receiv
ed from him was by no means a fair
indication of the tenor of' thme replies.
On the contary, they were in marked
contrast, lie hal received r;eples from
many counties and from many men ren
presenting the Reform faction and they
were courteous and1 conciliatory.
For instance a chairman of a l.'iedl
mont County who ia an ardent Tilinan
ito and oflice holder under the present
administration writes:
Your communication of the 20th to
hatndl. I will take great pleasure in pre
senting your request to our exercutive
commit tee when it meets on '.he 21st
instant. 1 think your request perfectly
fair and will use my in fluence to h ave
In grantedl.
ThIs comes very much nearer b~eing a
sample of replies fromn Reform chair
men. There seems to lbe a spirit of con
servatism without regard to party fac
tion wvhich Is not only encouraging for
Senator Jhatler, hut for the peace a~nd
order of the State.
An Accident at Oakley
TY', .July 4.-Recently amt the (down
train from Columbia wats rapid
ly approaching this place two negroes,
Ned Wehiman and an unknown colored
man, were run over and killed at what
is known as the "JBroughton bwamp
Trestle," about a half mile above the
depot. Weh man, it appears, had clear
e:1 the trestle, and upon looking back
saw that the unknown man was in
danger of being inj uredl. Hie sprang to
his assistance, and it was in the at
tempt to save the man's life that both
were killed. As soon as the men were
discovered upon the track every effort
on the part of the engineer and those
in charge of the train was made to
avert the accident, but without avail.
They were so close upon the men that
it was impossible to stop in time. A
jury was empanelled and an inquest
held by Trial Justice Rt. W. Hains,
acting as coroner, and a verdict was
rendered in accordance with the above
faots,no blame attaching to the railroad
company. The wonder is that like acci
(louts have not happened before and
more frequently, for the negroes, make
a public course of the railroad track
and trust to luck to get out of the way
of passing trains in time to avoid in
ji ury.

I see it reported in the papers today
that Senator John Gary Evans said at

him wIth poor mouth as to my salary.
Mr. Evans is entirely mistaken if he
made sueh statement. What I (did do
wvas to call his and other members of
the general assep-ibly's attention to the
unjustt and apparently spiteful discrim
inations in the Senate salary bill of
1892. I mentioned the special discrim

as $1,900 and current expenses at $1,
