A GRAND VICTORY.
NOT ONLY IN SOUTH CAROLINA BUT
ALL OVER THE UNION.
The Democrats Have Captured the House
of Representatives by a Maijority of
Over One Hundred and Made Large
Gains in the Senate.
The election last week was a regular
Waterloo to Independents and Repub
icans all over the country.
Tillman's majority in this State is
between fifty and sixty thousand. Has
kell only carried-three counties, Sumter,
Beaufort and Berkeley, all the others
went by handsome majorities for the
regiilar Democratic ticket.
All the Democratic nominees for Con
gress in this State have been elected.
There was some doubt about Col. El
liott's election, but the fact that a great
many of the Miller ticket will be thrown
dut on account of their size and color,
will give Elliott a handsome majority.
In the Congressional elections all
over the North, East and West the Re
publican party has met with a most
signal defeat. Besides, the Democrats
have-the State officers in a number of
heretofore strong Republican States,
suolhas Pennsylvania, New Hampshire,
Misachusetts, Wisconsin and several
The Democrats have also captured
the1Legislatures in New York, New
Hampshire, Illinois and Wisconsin and
the Alliance has captured the Legisla

ment of that great enemy of the South,
Ingalls, whichin addition to the four
new Senators to be elected by the Dem
ocrats in New York, New Hampshire,
Illinois and Wisconsin will leave the
Republicans a majority of only four in
Among the Republicans who failed
of a re-election to Congress are Mc
Kinley, Cannon, Rowell, and many
other South haters, which is a source of
great joy to every Southerner.
Taken altogether, it is one of the
grandest victories ever gained by the
people over corruption, venality and
sectionalism, and will do more to
strengthen the Union between the States
'than any event that has happened since
the close of- the war, and, unless the
-Democrats use their victory unwisely,

A Horrible Accident.
CHICAGO, Nov. 0.--A platform up- 1
on which was standmng a number of em-c
ployes of the Lyon & Hlealy musical
instrument factory, collapsed yesterday
and instantly killed Win. Tishendorfa
and seriously injured Dora Gifford. Wmn.
Mcflaniels, Henry Rooline, John Steele
and John Kohler. Some time ago, em-t
ployes of the factory, about 300 in all,
arranged to have their pothographs
taken and employed a carpenter to con-t
struct a temporary stage for them to
occupy while sitting for the negatives.
When the emnployes had taken their
positions on the platform, it gave
way under the weight. Hundreds oft
men and women were thrown in a mass,
and th'ose who escaped with ont broken
Jbones suffered painful bruises and

Deputy Juan A. Mateos in the:
Mexican~Chamber of Deputies has pre- 1
sented a bill which, if made a law, will]
cause three-fourth of the cler~gy to leave
Mexico. Nearly all the existing Catho-f
lic churches in Mexico belong to the i
aovermnent, and the bill proposes that
only native priests be allowed to occupy
the pulpits. Nearly three-fourths of
the priests are Spaniards. A mlost ex

SEVENTEEN BROTHERS IN THE WAR. I
They Came of a Remarkable Family of
Thirty-five Children. All Sons.

ille, W. V., 'the census enumerator I
for Moundsville, near where I live, must
have found about as wonderful a dom- f
estic - history as any enumerator ran r
against elsewhere in this country. I re- a
fer to a family by the name ot Brandon. t
The father of that family. Charles Bran- d
don, (lied when he was 66 years old but t
his youngest child was then less than a
year old. Ile died just as the civil war 1
broke out, from a broken heart, his wife i
having refused to live with him any lon- E
-er. Ile had at that time thirty-five I
living children, and had been married I
"Ihis first wiie bore him two children. C
Ilis secoid wife died after beariu him 1
eighteen. At the age of 75 he maried 1
Sarah Barker. she being 16, and the t
Youngest of sixteen children. She lived S
with him twenty-one years, bearing him b
fifteen children, and then left him, taking c
her year old baby with her. Brandon d
was still hale and hearty, but the deser- f
tion of his wife broke him down, and he c
died within a month after she left him. a
"When his third wife married him the u
oldest of his twenty children by his two t
previous wives was 39, and the entire f
twenty lived under the paternal roof. c
The young wife reared all of the twenty 0
that were young enough to need rear- U
ing, besides caring for the fifteen of her %
own, the oldest of whom was but 20 a
when she left their father. The family I
of thirty-five kept together for many I
vears after their father's death, and if the c
patriaichal Brandon had lived a few c
months longer he would have seen I
seventeen of his sons enlist in the Union '
rmy. It is a question f A1u Jius or any t
ther country a.- instance can be found a
where one family ever before contributed N
seventeen sons to their country's ser
"These boys all came of good fighting
stock, for their father was a famous. In- e
dian tighter himself, a veteran of the f
war of 1812 and the Mexican war. c
When western Pennsylvania was the b
rontier, and the Indian fighter was the M
most important and indispensable per- f
son in the settlements, Charles Brandon, n
occording to all traditions, was one of f
the best and most daring of all the ac- a
tive foes of the red men. His father
was killed by Indians when Charles was M
only 3 years old. He himself was made d
? prisoner, and lived with the Indians a
twelve years, hating them more the h
Longer he was with them. At the age a
of 15 he escaped, and after learning his u
mother tongue, spent all his time, until j
they were driven away to more remote r
settlements, in hunting and killing In

fighter is living in Moundsville hale and t
hearty at the age of 67. She is over six i:

Credit for Cleveland. t
CorUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 9.-Allen W. i:
Thurman, son of Judge Thurman, in 1,
whose honor a banquet is to be given t
November 13, addressed a jollification t
meeting at Hamilton, Butler County, a
the home of Governor Campbell, this e
evening and gave the credit of the re- r
cent victory to ex-President Cleveland, ij
and at the same time paid him the fol
lowing hioidsome tribute:
"Yet this was the issue' plain and
simple, brought about by the McKinley ~
bil, and to the man Grover Cleveland,
who three years ago boldly and fear
ressly attacked this whole system, more
than to any other we owe this victory.
Never for one moment, amid all the t
abuse thai. was heaped upon him, did n
Le falter or his courage fail. Believing
in the truth and justice of his position,y
believing that the government had no
right to take money from the pockets of
the people solely for the benefit of a
Darticular class, he continued year after a
year, when others hesitated to battle forn
he riaht, and now, when all are eager h
Lojoiniin the fray, certainly this fact, a
that he dared to lead when scarcely any ~
lared to follow, shows the metal he is
nade of, and I believe that the whole ti
people will see to it that he, and only ,.
e, shall be again chosen as their leader
n 1892. If ever man spoke the truth' a
surely he did when he said. a few days
ago, 'No one has a greater right to re
ioice than I have.'a

EMPERANCE WOMEN IN SESSION
Iresentation of a IHanncr to the State
Convention of the W. C. T. U.
:NEWlERlR Y. Nov. G.-The State Con
ention of the Women's ChrIstian Tem
erance Union met here last night with
fair attendance of ladies from all
arts of the State. The feature of to
ilt's mcetlngr was the presentation of
beautiful and paimted silk banner to
be convention by its eloquent presi
ent, xMrs. Sallie F. Chapin. of Charles
:n. In niakingz the presentation Mrs.
hapin said: --Great curiosity was ex
ressed as to what cinblem I would use
s the exponent of temperance work in
outh Carolina. 'A target' was pro
osed. and that suggested the emblemi
have chosen. 'the palmetto.' Wom
ns's work in the temperance cause has
ften been made a target, against which
eak witticisms and stale impertinences
ave been hurled by those who do not
ike the trouble to inquire into the
cope and magnitude of the great work
eing accomplished by the thousands of
onsecrated woman who are battling in
efenice of there homes with the power
.d foe, whose batteries are erected at
Yeay street croner and whose victims
re in all our homes. But a target had
npleasant associations and would be
ie rena. ider of a fact we desired to
)rget-that there were those even of
ur own households of faith who not
nly gave us no encouragement In our
npopular work, but those sharp
reapons had pierced our hearts again
nd again. We (lid not want to remem
er all this, so we chose 'the palmetto,'
r though bullets be shot into the heart
f the palmetto the wound will be con
ealed and covered by a new growth;
ack it with a sobre, it will still show
a ziwn. green and flourishing. And
en the motto exactly suits the temper
nee work in South Carolina. 'While
re breathe we will hope.'
"Massachusetts has her Mayflower;
leorgia had selected cotton. But the
layilower would not have suited us
ven if it had not been appropriated,
)r our Huguenot ancestors landed on
ur own Carolina coast fifty-eight years
efore the Mayflower came over. So it
-as the most natural thing in the world
)r me to adopt our own State tIag,
iotto and all, and I was surprised to
nd how appropriate it is to our temper
"In the first place, palm trees love
ater, their roots always go below the
rought line. The palmetto can endure
ny amount of pressure; you can pile
eavy weights on it, but as soon as they
re removed the elastc fibers assumes its
pright position. So defeat, abuse. un
ast criticism, only make us more deter
iined. Like the palmetto, the W. C.
'. U. breasts the storm of adverse fate.
"The heart of most trees is hard, the
eart of the palmetto is soft. The pal
ietto grows every year more syna
lettrical. It sheds off all the under
rowth, the trunk becomes smoother
d firmer and furnishes no hiding
lace for parasites. So it has been with
ae W. C. T. U. Another way in which
ie palmetto resembles the W. C. T. U.
that there are a great variety of
alms, Each having its own especial
se and place. Some are so strong they
my be used as masts, strong enongh to
ithstand the tempest, others furnish
il, and others, again, can only be made
y delicate hands into fans.
"So in the W. C. T. U. our women
ave 'diversities of gifts.' Some of
Lem are able by their eloquence to thrill
umense audiences and to speak before
gislative and Congressional commit
es. But % the large majority belongs
me duty (as they .visit peniteneiaries
d almshouses) of pouring in the oil of
onsolation to wounded hearts or fan

ivaha in the hospital wards.
