About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon fin
was discovered eating its way out of the rooJ
of Mr. C. R. HarviTA's residence. An alarzn
was sounded, and in a short time ready and
willing hands were there to fight the mons.
ters work of destruction. l'he roof was
in a blaze, and the prospect for saving thE
building seemed rather small, but ladders
were soon procured and, by means of a
false window in the loft, Messrs. J. H.
Lesesne and W. T. Wilder succeeded in
getting in under the roof and, by having
water handed to them, soon extinguished
the blaze. It was a close call ; so much so
that the furniture was moved out into the
street ard the inmates had given up all
hopes of having their home saved. The
colored people, especially Policeman Wash
ington and William DeLaine, who did
good work. While everybody worked hard
and did their best to save the property. it
was remarkable to see the energy displayed
by Lesesne and Wilder. They seemed to
teel that a responsibility rested upon them
similar to the captain of a sinking ship,
and they were determined to be thd last
to leave. After all the danger was over,
and the furniture was returned to the house,
these young gentlemen still lingered to
watch the building in case the fire would
break out again, and were it not that their
time belongs to their employers, it would
not surprise us to hear that these gentle
men are still watching that building.

The Latest Frog Story from the Fork.
If we were not afraid of getting licked we
would not hesitate to announce that Baron
Munchaussen has arrived in these parts.
Any way, we will risk telling some of the
things some people are perpetrating upon
an innocent public. Mr. Haynsworth D.
Plowden, a man who was raised by good
parents, and who received the benefits of a
first-class Sunday-school training, told us
that a few days ago while coming from his
father's place in the Fork, he noticed in a
field belonging to himself a place where
there bad been a shower of frogs. He dis
mounted from his horse and went intoi the
field to investigate. He found a place cov
ering an area of about two hundred yard%
literally covered with frogs about one-half
inch in length. There was no pond any
where in the vicinity, and if the frogs did
not rain down he cannot imagine where
they came from. Mr. Plo den. we think,
told us that he wadel through this sea of
frogs, but set in.: us smile U. stopped talk

Closing Exercises of the Academy.
The closing exercises of the Manning
cademy took place last evening, and, al
hough it was expected that they would
take placee in the Methodist church, as pre
vionsly announced, the change to the

Dr. Rice delivered an address that covered

the mind and the ear.
Mrs. Alsbrook deserves great credit for
the energy and devotion she displays for
her school and scholars, and in securing
Dr. Rice to entirtain the parents and friends
of her scholars she showed tine taste.
After the address Dr. Rice called up Mar

handsome gold medal. A beautiful gold
ewel was then presented as a conduct
medal to Virginia Galluchat by .\r. Joseph
Sprott, whose talk, although brief, was well
spoken and impressive. Major Abe Levi
then came forward, and in his usual happy
style presented Albertiune Loyns with a
charming gold pen with a pearl handle as

South Carolina's Governor Talks
of the Future.
CONCERNING THE DISPENSARY LAW.
He Says the Recent Decision Does Not In

tical Operation-Blind Tigera
the Only Competition.
CoLrMBxA, S. C., May 13.-There is
still much talk about the two decisions
of the United States court affecting the
two most important laws in the state.
Although nearly every one concedes
that the knocking out of the feature of
the dispensary law, preventing liquor
from being brought into the state, is
practically a death blow to the law,
Governor Evans is declaring that the
profits will not be affected. This is in
the face of the claim that better liquors
can be delivered here from points out
side the state at lower rates than the
The effeet of the registration decision
is of more vital concern in view of the
negro majority in the state and yester
day the state democratic executive com
mittee, controlled by the dominant ele
ment, was called by the state chair
man, Senator Irby, to meet here on
Wednesday night next. It is evidently
for the purpose of arranging to face
the new condition of affairs.
What Governor Evans Says.
Last evening, Governor Evans gave
to the representatives of the Southern
Associated Press the following inter
view, designed to express his belief as
to the future of the dispensary law and
the effect of the decision upon it. The
The practical operations of the dispensary
rare not interfered with in the slightest. The
great number of patrons of the dispensary are
people who are in sympathy with the law.
Those who have been forced to patronize it
belong to the class who cannot afford to import
for their own use. The source of revenue Is
from the sale of the cheaper grades. of whisky
in quantities of one-half pint. These people
cannot afford to import.
The only competition that could come would
be from blind tigers and old whisky dealers,
who under the guise of importing for their
own use, will endcavor to supply them. This
will be check-mated by a more strenuous ef
fort than heretofore to prosecute them under
section 22, of the dispensary law. This is the
section which provides for injunction, and the
entire vigilance of the dispensary force will
be centered upon the illio:t tranicker. One or
two convictions will soon put an en: to the
traffic and this will be done without recourse
Metropolitan Police Idea.
If we find that the police of the towns do not
co-operate with us in suppressing the illicit
sales of whiskey. I will immediately place
every town in the state under the operation of
the metropolitan police law. This will be of
greater advantage to the enforcement of the
law than the employment of the constables,
and will save to the state $4,500 a month which
we are now expending for the constables. The
row of the illicit trafficker will be a hard and
stumpy one, and the resources for making It so
are abundant. I shall not hesitate to use
them. So Instead of being a death blow to the
dispensary, if this decision is sustained by the
supreme court of the United States-and I can
hardly see how It can be-yet, we will make It
an advantage to the law, by reason of this
saving in expense of its execution.
There is no opposition to the law in any part
of the state except in the cities of Charleston
and Columbia and very little in the latter city.
The foreign element is the bone of contention
in the former city, and they will never become
reconciled to our Institutions.
In spite of the-fact that the great benenits of
the dispensary law are reaped by our entire
people, the law has recently been enacted in
the state of North Carolina and will be in the
state of Georgia at the next session of the
legislature, and this accounts for the fierce
battle waged upon it by the whisk'ey trust,
who succeed in buying up United States
Test Case Being Made.
Let not the friends of the law be discouraged:
[ts success is assured and they will live to see
[ts adoption by a majority of the states of the
american Union. The days of the bar-room
sre over, and the influence of the bar-keeper
:lestroyed in South Carolina. and I am satisfied
lt will be in the nation at no late day.
A test case is already being made in Charles
ion to carry the law to the supreme court of
the United States, and we expect a decision in
iwenty days. We will take the case up on
iabeas corpus proceedings. In the meantime,
the constables will watch the shipments of
iquor into the state and will not seize any
packages unless they have strong grounds to
yelieve that it is not for personal use.
As to the decision in the registration case
ad our position on that matter, Governor
E~vans said, "I will simply say there will be a
traight fight now between the white man and
~he nigger, ad God save the white man that
coos to the negro. Beyond this, I have noth
ng more to say than I have already said."
While giving the above interview,
.iovernor Evans received notice that a~
[7nited'States marshal had arrested one
>f his liquor constables who had made
t seizure in Beaufort in defiance of
Tudge Simonton's injunction. What
'sill be done about it is not known as
iet. Assistant Attorney General Town
iend is now in Charleston at work on
;he ease Governor Evans refers to.

Lawyer Graves Defends a SchooI Teacher
WINSs-oN, N. C.,Ma-y 14.-The partic
ilars of a big sensation, which occur

t appears that a serious report became
~urrent about Prof. Whitaker, princi
>al of the high school at that place,
oupling his name with that of his lady
ssistant, the name of whom is not
earned. Prof. Whitaker called for an
evestigation. A trial before the church
'ollowed. The professor was riepre
ented by Mr. Porter Graves, of Mt.
Liry, who made a three hours' speech
n favor of his client. While he was
pealiing he was guarded by friends
ith pistols. The result of the trial
annot be given. The report about the
>rncipal of the school was put out by
ome of the students. A fight between
he young men and the professor and
trial before a magistrate are features
i the sensation. The unfortunate af
air has broken up the school, for this
erm at least.

GAINESViL:, Fla., Maw 1.-Senator
Tillman of South Carolina, arrived in
this city yesterday from the Archer
neighborhood, where he has some
property. He met his old friend J. F.
Bunch at the depot and accepted the
profeered invitation to dine at his home
here. A correspondent met the sena

the dispatches from Columbia in refer
ence to the decisions against the re-gis
tration and dispensay laws of his state.
The senator renlied:
I h-.ve not seen the papers, and while I an
ticip-ited the result. I have no direct knowl

Judge Simonton has once declared that this

the injunction. I am almost ready to think that

dispensary system is so popular In the state

ONE SOLID MASS OF FLAMES.
The Woo _ward Lumber Co's. Plant at At
lanta, Ga., Consumed by Fire.
ATLAN-TA, May 13.-Saturday after
noon the Woodward Lumber Co's plant,
a great portion of the lumber in stock,
and eight frame houses disappeared
under the ravages of one of the most
destructive fires that the city has ever
had. It was an instantaneous fire,
spreading from one building to another.
Before the department could arrive,
the mills, the dry house and the stables
were almost solid masses of flames.
The plant-which includes the office,
the mills, the dryhouse and the stables
-is worth probably $30,000 to $85,000,
and the amount of lumber on hand is es
timated by various parties from S5,000
to 45,000. The frame houses are esti
mated over $5,000. They were small.

The Situation at Olneyville, B. L, Very
Unfavorable to the Strikers.
OLNEYVILLE, R. I., May 10.-The
strike situation here does not favor the
strikers. TL e mill operatives have been
expecting a collapse of the stand taken
by the mill owners. They counted
surely on the inability of the manufac
turers to keep their agreement to shut
down their mills on May 13th, for the
reason that orders must be filled. But
now comes the announcement that the
Riverside mills. will positively shut
down next Saturday afternoon. A por
tion of the help in that mill went out
on Monday, for the reason that the
weavers struck and as the mill owners
do not think it at all profitable to run
a mill if they cannot have all the de
partmnents in operation, the mills will
