The mental and physical machinery is

Acting Postmaster-General Neilson has
modified the recent order of the Post
master-General prohibiting railroads
from carrying without payment of pos
tage mail relating to railroad business to
meet the views of Attorney General
Harmon, to whom the matter had been
referred. The Attorney General held
that a railroad company has a right to
carry letters without the payment of pos
tage that are written and sent by the of
ficers and agents of the railroad company
which carries and delivers them, about
its business, and these only. They may
be letters to others of its officers and
agents, to those of connecting lines, or to

To enumerate the world's population is
a task which is simply appalling iu its
magnitude and yet before the present
century has completed its course that
task, as difficult as it may seem, will be
inaugurated. In round numbers the
population of the globe is estimated at
1,700,000,000. These figures, however,
are based upon the calculations which
each country has made for itself, and
while the grregate may be within a close
approximation of the real number, this
method of enumeration is too complica
ted to be reliable. At the last biennial
meeting of the International Statistical
Institute, recently held in Switzerland, it
was decided to institute a census which
should havo for its scope the entire pop
ulation of the globe. Tho advantage of
uch a census is that it will be thorough
ly supervised by competent statisticians
appointed for the special purpose. It
will take several years, perhaps, to com
plete a census of this kind, but it will
put at rest all doubt as to the number of
beings who inhabit this planet.
- Greenwood Journal, Aug. 13: Prof.
Wm. Hood was in Greenwood a few days
last week visiting his son and daughter,
Dr. Hood and Mrs. R. P. Blake. Prof.
Hood's presence here recalled tho time
just after the war when he was State
Treasurer under Gov. Jas. L. Orr and
holdover forborne time under Gov. R.
K. Scott until his successor could give
bond. It is said when he was about to
retire from office, Gov. Scott asked him
what he expected to do, and Prof. Hood
told him that he had accepted a profes
sorship at Erskine college. Gov. Scott
expressed a desire to educate some South
ern boy whom Prof. Hood should select.
The boy was chosen by Prof. Hood, edu
cated by Gov. Scott, and is now president

To the Editor of the State: In your is
sue of the 7th inst, you published'a latter
from Commissioner Mixson. Every
word he says in that letter about my of
fering him a rebate directly or indirectly
of any amount or any shape, or at any
time, is absolutelv false from beginning
He further states that "when Mr. Trax
ler waa commissioner he discovered that
the Mill Creek Company was being paid
interest after 30 days, and each 30 days
calling for more or bigger intetest." This
statement is also false.
All the goous we sold Commissiouor

months' time, and interest was charged

a sane man can make such a statement
over his own signature, when he knows
the evidence to prove him a falsifior is
on file in the office of tho State Dispensary.
! The reason this man Mixson is so bit
! tor against me is because I would not
i employ his agent and pay him a com
mission. Shortly after he was appointed
commissioner, but before the business of
the .dispensary was transferred to him,
he gave his agent a lettter of introduction
to me. This'agent said he could get me

MIXSON ON HUBBELL.
To thc Editor of the State: Mr. Hubbell
says in reference to me in your issue of
yesterday: "Every word ho says about
my offering him a rebate, directly or in
directly, of any amount, or in any shape,
or at auy time, is absolutely fdse from
beginning to end." Yet ho doos not de
ny the interview in the sample room nor
my statement of what occurred there.
Should he do so and when he does, then
he is tho liar that I haye already branded
him in such event.
I now go further and say when the of
fer of the 10 per cent, discount wa3 made
in the privacy in the sample room, (he
having previously soperemtorily refused
to give mo tho 5 "per cent, off) I looked
upon it with suspicion and hence the
question, "Will you let it appear regu
larly on the invoice*?" Upon his declin
ing to do so and throwing himself behind
the "trust'r I was fully satisfied what
his meaning was and consequently de
clined to deal with him and have never

should have read, interest being paid af
ter 60 days in place of SO days as stated.
I now say that his invoices for all goods
bear upon their face "interest after GO
days at 6 per cent, per annum, except on
the XXX ryes which he bills at 2.25 per
gallon, four months.
You must understand that the quanti
ty of XXX ryes is very small indeed in
comparison with the quantity of the
other, which was billed on the GO days
After assuming the duties of commis
sioner a draft come in from Mr. Hub
bell's company claiming a balance of in
terest due tbem. A3 Mr. Traxler had
not returned any amount due them as
such, I refused to pay for some time and
did not do so until I had Mr. Hubbell to
como out and bad Mr. Traxler to go ovor
the account with my bookkeeper, Mr. S.
W. Scruggs, who was soon convinced
that there was an accumulated interest
from partial payments of accounts due
them amounting to 1,255.34. for which
amount I issued a warrant on the State
treasurer, Mr. Traxler agreeing to the
same, which I now have iu my office in
Even if Mr. Mr. Hubbell did uot intend
my putting the return "cash" from the
10 per cent, offered, in my own pocket as
is so religiously claimed, he certainly of
fered to act, must I say, in bad faith in
trying to beat and deceive the "trust," of
which he is an honored member, and I
am informed an officer, and in doing so
he laid himself open to be adjudged capa
ble of making any kind of a propositron.
As to the part ol his letter which states
"an agent of his called on me with a letter
of introduction," the only party to whom
I gave a lotter of introduction was to Mr.
Robt. M. Mixson under the following
About thc time I assumed tho duties of
the office Mr. Robt. M. Mixson, a nephew
of mine, who is aud has been for the last
10 or 12 years, the soliciting freight agent
of the southern department of the Louis
ville and Nashville railroad with head
quarters in Atlanta, Ga., asked me for let
ters,of introduction to several parties, in
the interest of his road. I readily and
giadly complied with his request and
gave him polite and gentlemanly letters to
the following parties: George Hubbell,
Cincinnati; Messrs. Block, Acme Brew
ing company, Macon; Penn Ulass com
pany, Anderson, Ind., and perhaps to an
other one or two, I do not recollect. What
look place between Mr. Hubbell the sec
retary of the Mill Creek Distillery com
pany" and Mr. Robt. M. Mixson* agent
of the Louisville and Nashville railroad,
I do not know, but this I do know, Mr.
Mixon never intimated to me that his
lotter was to be used for other than the
purpose it was written, nor was he au
thorized to make any proposition coming
from me, and if any such proposition was
made, it was without my knowledge.
Immediately on reading Mr, IIubbell'8
latter I wired Mr. Robt M. Mixson, ask
ing him for a statement of what occurred
between himself and Mr. Hubbell that in
any manner related to me, and herewith
I give you his reply.
Mr. Hubboll's statement in reference
to my sending au agent to negotiate bears
badly on his sida, for after refusing to
give tho agent, as he states, 1 per barrel
for X, 2 per barrel for XX and 3 per
-barrel for XXX, be himself offers me
11.25 per barrel for XXX and would not
consent to put it it on the invoices. Be
sides had I any intention of such a deal I
would have been more discreet and not
allowed a third party the knowledge nor
a part of the deal.
I dislike very much to be forced to in
flict this upon the people, but it would be
suicidal iu my remaining quiet when
struck, and however agreeable it may be
for me to make these. appearances in
print, the poople may rest assured that I
will strike back when struck.
F. M. MIXSON.
The following is tho letter of Mr. Mix
son's nephew t him:
F. M. Mixson, State Commissioner, Co
lumbia, S. C.
Dear Sir:-Replying to your request to
state to you what occurred relative to a
letter of introduction to George Hubbell,
secretary of tho Mill Creek Distilling
company, Cincinnati, given me by you
sometime the first of the year, 1S95. I
beg to say that when I called upon you
about the time you took charge of the
State Dispensary, and asked you lor let
ters of introduction lor several western
firms, from whom tho dispensary bougbt
goods, you kindly gave them to me,
among them one to Mr. Hubbell. As
well asl can remember, the letter read:
"This will be handed you by my nephew,
Mr. R M. Mixson, who represents tho
Louisville and Nashville railroad. Any
thing you can do for him will be appre
ciated "by yours respectfully, F. M. Mix
I secured this letter for the reason that
I was anxious to haul all of the shipments
for the Mill Creek Distilling company,
having been hauling only a portion ol'
Bame under Mr. Traxler. I mailed this
letter to Mr. Hubbell, stating that I would
like to meet him on his next visit to this
territory. Mr. Hubbell replied that ho
would notify me when ho next came to
Georgia or South Carolina. Finding that
I was losing his Macon shipments al60, I
wired him that I was anxious to seo bim,
and to please wire me dead-head answer
when he would be down.
I finally met Mr. Hubbell on one of my
regular visits to Macon, and had a nice
talk with him, relativo to freights aud
other things. During this conversation
Mr. Hubbell made mo a proposition to
represent the Mill Creek Distilling com
pany in South Carolina, and offered to pay
me 50 cents per barrel on whiskey I
would sell to the South Carolina State
This went on for some months, when I
met him at tho Planter's hotel, Augusta,
on his way to Columbia, S. C. He then
increased his offer to 1 for ono X, 2.u0
for two XX and 3.00 for XXX. He vent
onto Columbia, and on Saturday after
noon of same week be wired me to meet
him Sunday afternoon following at the
Planters hotel Augusta. I was in Au
gusta, and met him. Ile informed me
that he had had a settlement in full with
the dispensary and had concluded to
abandon theirbusiness; that it was too
risky, and therefore had asked mo to meet
him so that he could withdraw his propo
The foregoing propositions were made
to me individually, and not as agant for
anybody else. Yours truly,
R. M. MIXSON.
Bear Girls of the Bicycle :
Another word with yon, please. I no
tice that ladies in Paris rido bicycles with
big pants, with small caps, and with cig
arettes in tho lips. I imagine thia is not
confined to regions beyond the Atlantic,
and: that the "wheel" and cigarette fasci
nation may come to girls of the South.
Do you notice how it has Blowly made its
way over your sensibilities? "Why was
tho wheel slowly accepted ? It was be
cause your modesty protested, but finally
yielded. Why was it that you did not
take to the wheel as soon as the boys ?
It was because your inward sense of pro
priety protested. If there had not been
an evident impropriety in girls mounting
a wheel they "would have sprung to the
amusement as soon as it appeared. Dut
good mothers and thoughtful gentlemen
shook their heads at the thought. That
delicate fear slowly subsided, and father
and mother determined that you should
have a wheel. There is something no
ticeable in this slow movomeut that final
ly wins your consent. It was your innate
modesty that declined the invitation.
You repelled it as unbecoming. But the
first repulse was the strongest, and it
grew weaker and weaker, and you" have
gone somewhere from your original con
victions. Is it up or down ? May I call
it acclivity or declivity ? Inquire of your
hearts and you will have an answer from
woman's internal monitor that will lead
you to suspect the latter. Ask again :
What was it that led me to look with
some sort of admiration upon a gracoful
lady mounted on a wheel, sailing softly
and rapidly and noiselessly by ? Was it
her beautiful modesty ? or "was it her
skill in poising her vehicle ? Did I think
at first that her fixed, solemn gazs and
her new walking motion detracted some
what from the ease, the elegance and the
gracefulness with which she usually
walks the streets ? Was there any rebate
of woman's modesty in the feat? WaR
not the old-fashioned side-saddle a tribute
to the native modesty of the sex ? That
was mounted becomingly from a pedes
tal. But the wheel is straddled outright,
and the retrogradation is from the mode
of mounting the oue to the mode of
mounting the other. It is retrograde and
down-grade modesty from the side-saddle
to the wheel.
I am not afraid, dear girls, that you will
dispute the point with me. I am resting
my plea on that Btrange thing in woman
that is not shocked by an impiety or hor
rified by a murder, that lies perfectly
dormant when a flagrant ingratitude pass
es before it, but the moment that asexual
indelicacy passes before it, it leaps into
hostile posture. It has a special and in
nate antipathy to the unchaste in thought,
word or manner. It is a spentaneity and
is not argued. It needs no logic. It
protests, which means to witness before
there is time to convince.
I want you to consult your natures, the
finest constitutions in the world. There
is nothing so beautiful. God's own handi
work and man's admiration. Made after
man was, the last of the creations, the
crowning piece, the citadel of the virtues.
All civilization, all manners, all homes,
all happiness, are dependent upon the
safe-keeping of that citadel of virtue.

semi-anarchists held recently at the

' Wire Will Be Used.
Col. D. P. Duncan, mannger of the
Farmers' Alliance exchange, roturned
from New York yesterday, where he had
gone to arrange for the wire cotton ties.
He was asked by a representative of the
State what success he had met with.
"I found the manufacturers willing
and even anxious to help the farmers
out in their fight against the tie trust,"
he replied. "I have arranged with a
manufacturer to make us wire ties. They

"Now, as to tho comparative cost of the

Fight lu a Georgia Church.
MACON, GA , Aug. 23.--A sensation was
created in the leading Methodist Church
in this city to-night, caused by a difficulty
between the Rev. Alonzo Monk, pastor
of the Church, and Tilden Adamson, a
reporter of the Daily Telegraph.
Mr. Adamson reported the reverend
gentleman's sermon last Sunday, which
was pronounced by the pastor to be
correct. But at to-night's services, Mr.
Monk in his sermon was particularly
severe on the reporter, and reflected on
him in such a manner as to cause Mr.
Adamson to resent it near the end of the
Going io the pulpit the young gentle
man demanded an explanation of the
Doctors romarke. An exchange of words
angered both gentlemen, whereupon they
grabbled each other.
Deacons of the Church rushed forward,
and an exchange of blows betwoen them
and tho reporter followed. The news
paper man stood firm and defended him
self as best he could against odds. Police
were sent for. The congregation was
greatly excited, more than a thousand
people being present.
Women and men stood on tip-toe to
watch the outcome of tho scuflle. Finally
order was restored, but the services were
somewhat shortened by the scene.
Mr. Monk has been particularly severe
on the bar rooms and lewd houses of the
city, and his language has been the topic
of discussion for a week. The trouble to
night is really an outcome of his sermon
on the barrooms of Macon. Mr. Monk
is one of the ablest ministers in the Meth
odist Church, and while many people ap
prove his severe attack on the lower ele
ments of society, there are others who
contemn it as" ill-advised and intemp
Speaks to thc Farmers.
MOUNT GRETNA, PA., Aug. 21.-Senator
Ben Tillman of South Carolina made an
address to-day for free silver to the farm
ers gathered to attend the Mount Gretna
agricultural fair. About 700 people, most
of them farmers, made up Senator Till
man's audience. Tho speaker was given
respectful atteution and was frequently
His concluding paragraph was this:
"Will you submit to Euglish domina
tion ? We whipped England in 177(3, we
whipped her in 1812 and wo can whip her
to day with one hand tied Think whether
you will again have Pierpont Morgan
and his gang of ghouls in Wall Street to
govern and have dominion over our
President and congress, or whether you
will free us and restore our majesty as
American freemen. Tell your party to
go to the devil unless lt is going todo
what is right."
With this blunt ending the Senator sat
down. Immediately a mun rose in tho
audience and proposed a vote of thanks
to Mr. Tillman, but there were a score of
shouts of "no." The Beuator sat entirely
unmindful of the turmoil that WBB created
for the instant, until the chairman could
call the meeting to order and introduce

York, who also made a silver speech.

Well, Here we are Again !
Gold Bug and Free Silver men meet
for a common Cause-Come weal or
woe, we are here for your good. . . .
The burden of our argument shaU b e
BROOMS, BROOMS ! BROOMS ! !
WE are not fighting anybody-we do hot want to fight anybody. We are not try
ing to mn anybody out ot business, but we are here to lead, the prices, and lead the
prices wa will. We name prices on Brooms-new prices on Brooms-prices on Brooms
that attracts the attention of everybody who sweeps or lives In a house that is swept
by a Broom. We haye a full Staff Broom, made of Western corn, two utrings, good
length, wa pries you at Sc. No other man can do it, but we can and we do. We have
a very large Broom, a good Broom, a Broom that you feel the weight of when you
huvo it In your hand, a Broom that makes a wide path whoo you drat; it across the
floor, we call lt our ''trash mover." It's a Broom that attracts attention, it's a Broom
that you like, it's a Broom that hocsekeepera take a liking to, it's a Broom that's been
sold at from 20c. to 2dc, but we name a price that the poorest man can pay. we name
a price that you formerly paid for a Toy Broom-the price ii IOCJ. See this Broom be
fore you buy Broom?. We have a very large Broom that we will sall for 15s.-a broom
made in this 8tate, that is a home industry-it is a home-made Broom-it's a Broom
that shoald elicit your kind hympithy. We will sell you a finer Broom still for 20c
8nd 25c. And you knov? our Royal No 9 and our B:g No. fi 60;. and 50 . Broom?.
We propose now to put you thens at 35c and 30j.
Now, there be those who'will send up a howl as long as from here to Jerusalem,
and say that we are losing money on Brooms, but they are deceived. If we paid what
they paid for their Broom.s we would be losing money ; but remember that we do not
buy unless we buy cheap, therefore we eau afford to say that we need not sell unless
we sell cheap. Parties buying Brooms from us now will get the lowest prices that have
eyer been made on Brooms.
Another thing we want to mention in our Broom ad. is TOBACCO. We have got
a standard grade of Tobacco-goes all over the country at five plugs to the pound, has
never been retailed at less than 25o per pound-that we propose to sell a small lot of
at 4c. per plug, jast to se9 tobacco chewers smile and competition scringe. Yes, you
will see them scringe, you will see them squint. They will say there is something the
matter ; and we say there is something the matter, ton, but it is with the other fellow.
We are in the swim and we propose to stay there. We have got a Tobacco that people
are selling all over this Stats at 35;. per pound, by the box at 33c, we propose to make
you at present at 25c. It is strictly first-class Tobacco-a good chew, a good keeper,
and put up in good shape, 10 lbs. to the box. Everybody'should have at l ist one
box, and some people should have five.
Don't forget that we are still making cut prices on TINWARE, GLASSWARE,
and CROCKERY. Our Lamps are marvels of cheapness, and going just for fun. Our
SOAPS are superb, and the prices we are making on some nf the highest quality, be3t
known brands, are taking the lead all over the country. We sell eight oars of first
class Soap for 25;. We sell nine pounds of first-class^Baking Sjda for 25o.
Well, gentlemen, I am sorry that our talk most come to a closo, but you must re
member that all things are human and must come to an enc, the good and the bad ;
hence this talk must come to an end. So good-bye.
