DECEMBER 5, 1894- ANARCHY IN ALABAMA. "Governor" Kolb Publishes a Message. An Exceedingly Revolutionary Document. He Advises tbe People to Refuse to Pay Taxes. A Chaos;* of Administration la Sonth Carolina—lnangnratloa of Governor Tillman's Soooessor. By tbe Associated Press. Birmingham, Ala,, Dec. 4.— R. F. Kolb, who claims io be governor o: Alabama, today completed a message to the legialature which be signs as gover nor and which will be transmitted to tbat body tomorrow. The message ia also addressed to the people of Alabama and is a long, end in many respects, revolutionary document, as it recom mends that bis followors do not pay their taxes for a while. He further aays: "I further advise those collectors who value the cause I represent and which wilt assuredly prevail, to delay all pay ments of Btate taxes into the state treasury, until an impartial hearing haa been had of our oomplaint under a fair and honest contest law." When it is rerdembered that tbe tax collectors in 38 out of 66 counties in tbe state are Kolbite?. it will be eeen that if they take his advice tbe Kolb govern ment will find strong support and Ala bama will be threatened with aneroby. In his message Kolb says: "Tbe revolntionary conditions of our state government must become tbe sub ject of your continued and most anxious contemplation. The plans of the usurpers, ao alarming to yon, are abat ing in nothing to reduce you to an ab j .'ct and final submission to their un bridled will and passions. You have eeen your juat demands for the full exeoution of tbe system for the election, of a governor and other state officers eecured tc you by sacred constitutional guaran tees, deliberately set aside by tbe legis lators, itself only a creature of the con stitution. I declare to yon without fear nf contradiction, tbat if the present party in conttol of your govornment be not arrested in its mad career, no elections can be held in Alabama under the law and constitution." He then reviews the provisions of the constitution and says: "Because the legislature of 1892-93 did expressly revoke the sections of tha civil ende, however onperfected, which seemed to allow a content, of tbe election of tbe governor and other state officers, by refusing on demand to restore them or to substitute others of a reasonable and practical nnture, you are perfectly justified in declaring there can be no elrction of a governor or other state officers undor the constitution of Ala bnma, binding on you, which is tainted with fraud at the ballot box." He then urged the legislature to on ce! contest lawe, and advises bis frienda to organize clubs to assist in the general object of his appeal. The message con cludes : "If Colonel Gates and his faction fear not the troth, if they court equity and are ready to abide by justice, they will hesitate at nothing to remove tbe color of dishonor from his title to the office he bas seized by nrmu." EXIT TILLMAN. A « hang* of Adminiatration In Sonth Ciirollna. Columbia, 8. C, Dec. 4. —Benjamin Ryan Tillman is no longer governor of South Carolina. At 1:30 p. in. today tie was succeeded by his chief lientenant, John Gary Evans. Several people as sembled in tbe hall of the house of rep resentatives, despite a raw and chilly i day with intermittent rains, to witness | tbe ceremonies of inauguration. As tbe inaugural procession entered, tbe baud played Hail to tbe Chief. Prominent among those on the stage were United States Senator Irby, ex- Governor Tillman anil tbe justices of tbe supreme court. After prayer by the Rev. John A. Rice the oath of office was administered to Mr. Evans by Chief Justice McCnor. He spoke dis tinctly and vrlthout tremor. His ad dress consumed about an hour in de livery. He said: "Gentlemen of the General As sembly:—Aiter obtaining tbe will of the people in three separate elections, I am nere todey to assume the governorship of the proudest people on the globe. Thirty years ago tho election of a man ' f my age to the highest gift in the honor of tbe people would have been oalled unconstitutional. A young man in Sooth Carolina would not have dared aspire to this honor for fear of gain ing the odium of tbe class who, by reason of age or inheritance, con sidered the ofllce no tbeir particular property without regard to tbe populai will. Tbere are some who still regard tha political conteet of 1892, which gave to us an aristocracy of brains instead of lands and money, as au hallucination. Thia gentle slumber will result in good and the Rip Van Winkles of the state will awake to rind themselves models of an tiquity, surrounded by youngsters of modern progress and development Who have nothing but reverence for tbem. It ia a matter ot congratulation to the people that this effort to etay the course of reform by an appeal to an ignorant and purchaseable vote bas been rebuked the second time in a manner unmistakable in terms, and let us hope that in the future there will be found in the etate none co igooble as to dare to threaten ne with a return of the dark days from 1808 to 187(5. "It is .unfortunate, indeed, that the foundation of our social and political institutions is the unity of tbe white people. Thia condition was thrust upon us by tbe emancipation and enfranchise ment with one stroke of the uufortu nata, ignorant Blaves, unfit to govern even themselves, placed in power by the bayonet and forced to govern tbeir former masters, We thus witness a spectacle seldom recorded in history. A government of ignorance, vice and cor ruption over wirxlom, virtue and hon esty. I say on the threshold of my ad ministration that it is for our people to oome together and be a nnited people and let tbe responsibility fall on those of the opposition wbo insist on a 'rule or rnin policy.' "We are fast coming to the plight whioh Ireland ii in. uir great planta tions are becoming merely tbe hunting preserves of the wealthy, and tbe labor er year by year is being ground to pov erty and servitude. The party that was true to us is tba past we must look to in the future or suffer defeat from one extreme of tbe land to the other, and today not a Democratic state is left north of Mason and Dixon's line. The northeast seemed to be deaf to our ap peals and tbe ray of light which we bad hoped for in the west ima proved as fickle as an aurora borealis. South Car -1 ..u„.. v.-- i,,., ;„ — » .. 1 — A vi„,„ uvoijr g.uMy uiuini political reform, and it remains for us to set the pace for the nation, which will ultimately bring reliof to the entire people." Governor Evans begins bis specific recommendations witb suggestions that tbe state agricultural society be given a small appropriation. He congratulates the people upon the calling of tbe con stitutional convention, and tho South Carolina oollege, he says, should be opened to women in all of its classes. Tho constitutional convention should provide special courts for the trial of criminals usually victims of lynch law. These courts should protect the victim and tbe ravisher from public and vulgar cross examination and tbe notoriety of newspapers exploitation. Of the dis pensary law he cays: "I am thoroughly satisfied, after an active canvass of tbe etate, that the dispensary law is now written in tbe hearts of the people and is favored by fully 85 per cent of the population. It shall be a duty and pleasure that the remainder respect and obey it." He ebarply arraigned towns hostile to the law. The remedy was v/ith tbe leg islature. Oovornor Evans' remedy is supposed to be a metropolitan police iorce for Charleston and other towns where tbe administration of the law is obstrncted. Tbe governor condemns the practice of leasing convicts to pri vate parties. In closing, Governor Evans says: "If, wben I return tbia commission, I can cay, 'Behold a happy people, iv peace, love and unity,' my reward will Ibe great and sufficient. I aak the sup port of my friends, the charity of my enemies and the help of God. I now dedicate my head, hand and heart to the service cf my statu." IflL ROADS. Slims Talk of Kalelnr Passenger Kates to the Coast. Chicago, Dec. 4. —The general meet ing of all the western lines again ad i journed this morning to permit tbe i transcontinental lines to take up the day with an effort to settle tbeii differences. ! The latter roads were in session all day j and finally adjourned until tomorrow. | Most of tbe timo waa, taken up with a disouaaion over tbe regular trip rates from the Missouri river to the coast, tbe proposition at the close of the meet ing being to advance the rates $25. No action was taken on the propoaition. The transcontinental linea expect to get together tomorrow, and the general meeting will be called as soon as they ate through. The transcontinental lines are meet ing with trouble in their efforts to get together, and to make ths matter worse there seems to be a disposition on tbe part of some of the lines to ignore tbe agreement into which the lines entered last week to abolish the payment of commissions. It is declared tbat com missions are being paid on tbe streets of San Francisco just as thoy were before the agreements were made. It is also said the agents of tbe Missouri Pacific at Omaha have men paying commissions, and when called to account have said they wero ignorant that an agreement had beeu formed. It this sort of thing continues for any length of time there will be no association formed at all and the con dition of passenger ratea in all the west ern territory will be in a state of chaos. The meetine of tho depart ment of the Central Traffic association which wae to have been held in New York has been postponed until Decem ber Bth and will be bold in Chicago. Fighting In Africa.

THE WAR IN THE ORIENT. A flitch in the Negotiations for Peace. .Detring's Mission Suddenly Terminated. Prospects for an Armistice Seem to Be Vanishing*. Field Marshal Yamagata Too 111 for Military Her vine —Slaughter of Tonghaks In Southern Corea. By the Associated Press. Washington, Deo. 4. —A dispatch from official Japanese sources, giving an ac count of Commissioner Detring's peace mission, was received here today by a gentleman in the diplomatio service. It is as follows: Mr. Oetring, commissioner in the Chinese cuatom aervice at Tien Tein, arrived at Kobe on the 26th of Novem ber and expressed a wish to personally deliver to Count Ito a letter from Li Hung Chang. Under the circumstances the proceeding was considered anoma lous and contrary to usage. Count Ito refused to meet Mr. Detring. At the same time Mr. Detring received tele graph orders from Prince Kung, presi dent of tbe Tsi Lung Yamsn, calling ing bim to China. Accordingly he left Kobe on tbe 20th of November; but be fore going he aent tbe viceroy'a letter to Count Ito by post. The object of tbe letter was to ascertain the conditions upon which peace might be restored. It waa aiao atated that Li Hung Chang had obtained the sanction of the emperor of China to the mission of Mr. Detring, which had for its obj3ct tbe purposeol confidentially ascertaining the views uf the Japanese government, but Mr. Detring's sudden return to Chios under orders of the president of the Tsi Lung Yamen, appears to throw some doubt upon the accuracy of this state ment. NEGOTIATIONS languishing. London, Dec. 4.—According to advices received from an excellent authority, upon the subject of negotiations for peace between China and Japan, the negotiations are net making progress as supposed. It seems that Japan in lands to insist upon stronger and more tangible proofs of China'submission be fore talking of peace. ' Tbe limes correspondent at Chee Foo, says: Foreigners here are prepar ing for defense. The Cbiness have lit tle confidence in tbe reports tbat an armistice is about to be concluded. MARSHAL YAMAGATA ILL. A dispute!! to the Central News from Tokio says a report, to which much credence is given, is current there to the effect, that Field Marshal Yamagata, commander of the Japanese army, is bo aeriously indisposed that it haa been decided necessary far him to be invali ded, and one of the court chamber lains baa started for the frontier witb a message from the emperor. Lieuten ant-General Nczu has been promoted to be a general, and will at once assume command of the first Jansneae army. Captain Miura has been appointed to command of tbe cruiser Yamasbire and the late harbor master at Ss Se Bo has been made governor of Port Arthur. TONGHAKS SLAUGHTERED.

Democratic Sentiment in Favor of Changing Them. A DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS. Three Honrs' Discussion of tlio Situation in the Senate. THE CLOTURE ADVOCATED. Senators Danlal, Teat nnd Others Are In Favor of 11-HoDia and Senate Proceeding.—Washing ton Notes. <V; the Associated Press. Washington, Dec. 4. —The Democrats of the senate spent about three hours in caucus today and then adjourned with out action, to meet again Thursday next. The entire time was devoted to a discussion of the situation and to the wisest course of action for tbe Demo cratic party during the present session. The entire discussion was based on a series of resolutions presented by Sen ator Daniel of Virginia declaring for a cloture, committing the party to an abandonment of all efforts to amend the tariff law and to an effort to reform tho currency in accordance with the sugges tion in the president's message. Tbe resolution opened a wide range ol debate in which many senators partici pated. Senator Voorheesopened tbe talk with a suggestion to the effect that the wisest course lay in the abandonment of an effort to pass tbe free raw material bills (so-called) because of tbe evident deter mination of the Republicans to prevent any action. Senator Vest showed an inclination toward cloture, contending if tbe Dem ocrats did hot adopt it, the Republicans would when they should come into power. Senator Morgan presented a plea for • liberal allowance of time for the consid eration of the Nicaragua canal bill. While no action on any question was taken by tbe caucus, the prevailing sentiment at the close of the caucus seemed to be tbat its ultimate decision would be adverse to the entire series of propositions presented by Senator Daniel. The sentiment favorable to cloture seemed quite evenly divided. There was also a strong sentiment favor able to the passage of tbe sugar bill, as reported by the finance committee, striking out all differentials on sugar and leaving a straight revenue duty of 40 per cent ad valorem, but it was pointed out tbat should an attempt be made in this direction it would open up the entire tariff question.

The attendance wai small and there was no clash of any kind. A bill providing far the dedication oi the Chiokamauga and Chattanooga park: in September, 1895, and one for tha establishment of a national military park on the site of the battle of Shiloh were passed. The remaiader of the day was devoted to a fruitless discussion of tbe printing bills. There were exactly 100 members on the floor when the bouse met at noon. The Democratic leaders decided just be fore the house wob called to order to plunge immediately into routine buai i ness. j Oatbwaite from the committee on i military affairs called up tbe bill for tbs dedication of the Cbickamauga and Chat tanooga national park. Tbe bill appro priates $20,000. The date of dedication was fixed for September 19 and 20,1895. Tbe bill wae passed.
