THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
More Interesting Developments In
House and Senate.
The general assembly is now winding
up tne third week of the present
session without having completed any
business of especial, general interest
beyond the election of Associate Justice
Jones to succeed Chief Justice
Pope and the election of Mr. E. D.
?">imiii iu [lie uimeu CMHies aeimic.
The balloting for an associate Juslice
to till the vacancy caused by the
elevation of Mr. Associate Justice
Jones was commenced on Wednesday,
and has been proceeding since with
every indication of a prolonged deadlock.
Upon the convening of the two
houses in joint assembly, the calling
for nominations by Lieutenant Governor
McLeod, the fight was commenced
Senator Carlisle of Spartanburg,
placed in nomination the Hon. D. E.
Hydrick, a son of Orangeburg county,
but now of Spartanburg. This nomination
was seconded by Senator Lide
of Orangeburg, and Representative
Wycne of Newberry.
Senator Rainsford of Edgefield, placed
in nomination the Hon. J. C. Sheppard.
Seconded by the Richland delegation
through the Hon. J. C. AlcMalian
of the house, and by Representative
Garrison of Bamberg.
Senator Mauldin of Greenville, placed
in nomination the Hon. Thomas
P. Cothran. whose nomination was
seconded by Representative Gary of
Senator Hardin of Chester, placed
In nomination the Hon. George W.
Gage, and this nomination was seconded
by Representative Hines of Lancaster,
and by Senator Stewart of York.
Senator Laney placed the Hon. R.
C. Watts's name before the joint assembly,
the same being seconded b>
Senator Wharton of Laurens, and Senator
ilelly of Lee.
The first ballot resulted: Cothran
3s; Hvdrick, 33: Gage 22: Sheppard
36;: Watts. 35.
The second ballot resulted: Cothran
27: Hydrick 35; Shepoard 37:; Watts
33: Gage 21.
The third ballot resulted: Cothran
38; Gage 18; Hydrick 28; Sheppard
37: Watts 32.
The Joint assembly was then adjourned
until yesterday, and six ballots
were taken during the day with
results a3 follows:
First Ballot?WTatts 32;: Cothran 37;
Khpnnnrrt 38;: Gage 20:: Hydrick 37.
Second?Cothran 37; Hydriek 37:
Gage 21; Sheppard 37; Watts 31.
Third?Cothran 39; Hydriek 37; Gage
19: Sheppard 38; Watts 31.
Fourth?Cothran 40; Hydriek 38;
Gage 18; Sheppard 37; Watts 24.
Fifth?Cothran 40; Hydriek 40;
Gage 20; Sheppard 38; Watts 23.
Sixth ?Cothran 37; Hydriek 38;
Gage 18; Sheppard 39; Watts 24.
The York delegation voted solidly for
Gage on the first few ballots. On the
third ballot Mr. Glasscock voted for
Hvdrick: but afterward went back to
Gage. On the 6th ballot Mr. Sanders
changed from Gage to Hydriek.
After t'no second ballot yesterday
there was a flutter over a proposition
to run in Governor Ansel as a dark
horse In the hope of drawing from the
lead of Cothran, his fellow townsman.
Governor Ansel was circulating
through the lobbies today and during
the voting occupied a seat in the gallery.
The friends of Mr. Cothran were
much incensed over this turn and got
busy, stiffening their friends to stick.
The movement to run in Governor
Ansel was not only unauthorized by
him, but most deciderly against his
wishes. He sent Mr. Cothran a message
to this effect this afternoon. He
is Mr. Cothran's former law partner
and regards this move as mean politics,
which is unfair to both him and Mr.
L>ast night efforts to break the deadlock
failed, the final ballot showing
practically no change in the situation
from the beginning. Balloting will be
resumed again tomorrow at noon. An
attempt on the last ballot was made
to rush in Speaker R. S. Whale.v as a
dark horse, but he had it scotched bv
H| the announcement through one of his
^ friends that this was emohaticallv
against his wishes. This was before
the vote was tabulated.
A REFORMED STATESMAN.
As He Grows Older Senator Tillman
Sees Things By New Lignis.
The sounding of a "clarion note" by
Senator M iuman tor the freedom of tne
American press is another incident
snowing his steady improvement in
understanding of political principles.
The senator's public career has been
one of notable progress from habits
of uncoutn speech and violent action
towards that sweetness and piacidity
of behavior that marks the statesman.
If the senator is still given to occasional
utterances which shock the
sensitive people of the north and east,
they are hopeful in contrast with the
explosions of his salad days. Moreover,
the senator has without doubt
acquired some knowledge of the real
doctrines of Democracy and his defense
of the freedom of the press illustrates
his advance in education.
These sentiments are creditable to
* 1 J ?? oon n t r\r 4' A
I rn* rillliu clUU Ileal I ui Uic ov;itawi?
free press can alone preserve free institutions.
Our great danger now lies
in the control of the press and its sub^
sequent subserviency to those who use
it to deceive the people and to perpetuate
their grasp upon power. The
newspapers now under fire for their
efforts to expose corruption in high
places should have the active support
of every true American for their cause
is the cause of us all."
A little less than fifteen years ago
the author of the exalted periods quoted
was governor of South Carolina
and commander-in-chief of its militia
forces. From the executive mansion
iti Columbia he proclaimed the counties
of Darlington and Florence in a
state of "insurrection." and some five
hundred or more armed troops were
summoned to Columbia. One of the
governor's first acts in dealing with the
emergency was to establish a military
press censorship and correspondents of
newspapers were compelled to submit
their dispatches to soldiers in uniform
stationed in the Western Union and
1'ostal Telegraph offices in Columbia.
That the freedom of the press," which
Senator Tillman so eloquently defends,
might be preserved these correspondents
were forced to send messengers
with their telegraphic stories to Augusta
in Georgia and to Charlotte in
North Carolina where they could be
filed for transmission in the telegraph
office without being subjected to the
blue pencil of the militia sergeants and
corporals who had come to Columbia
from remote rural districts. At the
same time the governor and commander-in-chief
was openly discussing the
propriety of preventing the publication
of "The State." a newspaper of
Columbia, by armed force. Not only
? Charlotte, N. C.. January 27: The
Southern and Bessemer City cotton
nllls were sold under the hammer at
Bessemer City today by Caesar Cone,
receiver. The Southern mill was
bought in by George Stephens of
Charlotte, representing a syndicate of
?i editors, for $110,500. The Bessemer
City mill was sold to Gen. John Gill
)f Baltimore, for $40,000. The mills
were placed in the hands of Receiver
Cone about a year ago, and the order
for the sale was made in Greensboro
ast December. The Southern mill runs
lo.UOU spindles ana 4uu moms, uuu mc
Bessemer City mill is equipped with
15,216 spindles and 401 looms. The
receivership was the result of a proceeding
in equity brought by the Cone
Export and Commission company of
Greensboro, and the indebtedness was
estimated at $330,000, so that by the
sale today the creditors will receive
approximately 30 cents on the dollar.
? Columbia, January 2S: Senator
Weston has a bill which was introduced
in the senate yesterday giving
to city councils and boards of a'dermen
the right to regulate the lates
to be charged by public utility companies
doing business in the cities. The
bill provides that the charges shall be
fixed by the councils or boards of aldermen
and pertains to electric lights,
street railway and telephone utilities.

Every business man, and every lady
should have a. FIRST-CLASS FOUNTAIN
PEN. There is no use in throwing
your money away on a Fountain
Pen that is not recognized as a standard
of quality?one that has stood the
tests of time and use?Buy a good one
and you will probably buy only one
during your life. I am showing the
handsomest lines of WATERMAN
IDEAL and PARKER LUCKY
CURVE PEN'S ever shown in Yorkville.
These lines include Pens of
every style that you could possibly
desire. If you want a very handsome
Gold or Silver Mounted Pen to present
to a friend, I have It. If you
want a Pen for every day service and
personal use, I have it. If you want
a pen to use for bookkeeping, I have
it. I have the Pen that will Just tit
your hand?come and try them. It
will give me pleasure to show you?it
will please you to see.
T. W. SPECK, The Jeweler.
Some Wives Object
To their husbands insuring
their lives. Their objections are,
no doubt, based on sentiment, and
some husbands are evidently pleased
with the position that the wife takes,
as it gives them what they consider a
plausible excuse to fail to do what
their conscience and better Judgment
tells them is a solemn duty, and one
that millions of men equally as intelligent
as they, have performed, and
thousands are doing every day. These
men are content to allow their wives,
cnildren and creditors to CAKKY 'iHii
RLSK, instead of paying a comparatively
small sum, say from 10 cents
to $1.00 per day, according to age and
amount of protection carried, to the
MUTUAL BENEFIT to relieve them
of the burden. It is not my purpose
to try to convince the wives who may
read this, and who object to their
nusbanus insuring tneir uvea, mat
their best interests not only demand
that they withdraw all objections?
because they cannot be sustained by
ligical reasoning?but that they should
insist on their husbands insuring in the
MUTUAL BENEFIT LIFE INSURANCE
CO.?the Rest Policy Holder's
Company in the World?without delay,
if they can pass the required medical
examination; but will say that of
the untold millions of dollars that the
life insurance companies have paid on
the lives of deceased policy holders
no WIDOW has yet refused to accept
the check of a company' made payable
to her order.

PULL?It Is the power that pulls the
most when you buy. It Is so at this
