South Carolinians Giveu Much
Honor iu the Great Dewey
Greeted All Along the Line With Cheers?
What Schley and Depew Said to Kohn.
New York, September 30.?Nothing
like the Dewey celebration here
to-day has ever been seen in this
land, and never before has a private
citizen received such an ovation as
Dewey received to-day. It was a
wondrous and marvelous demonstration.
For hours, a whole day, hun*
dreds of thousands stood patiently
watching the troops going by. It
'was a far greater ovation than was
ever dreamed of. They say here that
'there were several millions jammed
-along the line to see the parade, and
it is not hard to helieve. For seven
* long miles, from the Battery to the
Seven-mile Junction, and beyond,
there stood a wall of humanity cheering
itself hoarse. It is hard to describe
such a great demonstration
and useless to undertake it in a brief
dispatch, especially as my special
attention is due the Palmetto contingent.
It was my -good fortune to ride in
the carriage with Governor McSweeney,
by virtue of being one of his
aides, over the miles of the line of
parade, a block or two behind Dewey,
and to catch the focus of the wonderful
demonstration shown a man.as
plain and simple as the Admiral.
Thinking the carriage would come
to t.h? Hoffman House. Governor
McSweeney waited rather late, and
when he and Gen. Floyd and Miles
McSweeney got to the City Hall Mr.
George F. Spinney said we "got
damned near getting left." There
Mr. Downes and Mr. Kenney, who
were to ride with us to the "Sandy
Hook," which was to take the party
to the starting point, so as to avoid
^ the crowds. f
While on the "Sandy Hook" Governor
McSweeney, Gen. Floyd and
I had the privilege of meeting many
of the distinguished visitors aboard.
.All who rode in the carriages were
aboard. First of all came Mr. Croker;
he asked about politics. Later
on Senator Depew asked me to say
to the editor of The News and Courier
that' he had gotten a new hat,
and he emphasized the new. Admiral
Schley asked me to thank The
JNiews ana uouner ior us kuiu ncm- mentof
him. . J
Later on, witnessing the group of s
Governors from North Carolina, 1
South Carolina, New Jersey and fc
Tennessee break the old saying abont
tka long time between drinks," I told f
it to some newspaper men aboard, c
and, by way of reward, was intro- 1
duced to Admiral Dewey and Mayor t
Van Wyek. a
Admiral Dewey asked particularly c
about his friend, Judge Brawley, and c
spoke of their friendship. Later in e
the day Judge Brawley met Admiral d
Dewey on the reviewing stand. The f
ovation began at the beginning of a
the march and ended when all was F
over and not before. 0
SThe South Carolina troops started e
x ? from their quarters shortly after 8
o'clock, reached their station at 11,
* and remained'there until 2 o'clock,
" and passed the reviewing stand at C
5.05. They had a day of it, but go
v home proud of their State and that
thev were in the memorable parade.
It was one continuous ovation for 0
the Carolinians. They had the fin-' j
est representation in line and made v
a fine show. As soon as the crowds r
along the line knew our boys they
would whoop and yell for them, and s
say all kinds of pleasant things. ^
Whenever the parade was blocked j
and the regiment bad to halt the e
' men of South Carolina were greeted x
f with all kinds of delicacies. People j
threw eatables at the men, and fruit r
and flowers got tiresome. " Boxes of (
lunch wejce frequent. At 71st street a
an enthusiastic admirer brought out j
a pail of champagne punch. On 72d f
street there was a regular South Carolina
banner, and Col. Frost l\ad the j
men port arms, while the Artillery j j
Band played "Dixie," and all went I c
- wild with enthusiasm. J t
People along the line would cry j '<
out: "You're all right!" "'Rah for 1
. Carolina!" and "Look at the Recon'*
* structed Rebels!"
The Artillery Band played fine *
music, and whenever it struck up
"Dixie" Jthere was the greatest ap- j
* ? plause. At rest, the Greenville cornpany
gave its yell, much to the \
^^^^amusement of all.

The information that the postoffice
department has not entirely abandoned
the project of delivering mail
in boxes along star routes without
expense to patrons will, no doubt, be
received with a great deal of pleasare
by a great many people. Further
than the statement published elsewhere,
we are not prepared to say
my thing definite on the subject just
it this time. The readers of the Enjuirer
remember very well the splenlid
fight that Dr. Stokes and others
nade for the necessary appropria;ion
during the last congress. In our
)pinion, it was the best and most inelligent
fight that southern representatives
haye been able to put up
n recent years. It was not, it will
>e remembered, a pretended fight
'for buncombe;" but a real fight,
vhich all but overwhelmed the cold)looded
senate committee, which
vould have agreed to the appropriaion
had it not been for the enforced
ibsence of one favorable member.
Jut it seems that Dr. Stokes was not
atisfied with that. He has managed
o persuade Postmaster General
Smith to take an unusual step on his

or the necessary service, even without
express authority-.from congress.

his free delivery system is yet to be

1 All Bidders for Mall Contracts In South
j Carolina Next Month Shall Include In
their Bids the Delivery of Mail Free
Along iheir Routes Whenever a Suitable
Box is Provided-What Congressman
Orangeburg, September 26.?The
postal regulations recently issued by <
the department relative to star route
j mail carriers contain a new para|
graph that is of great interest to a
large number of South Carolina people.
As will be remembered, all the i
! Star route contracts are to be given j
out afresh for four years this fall to j
j the lowest bidder; and all bids must 1
j be filed by November 30 next. The I
j new regulation requires that bidders (
for mail contracts in this State shall i
include in their bids the delivery of g
mail tree along their routes whenever
a suitable box is provided and t
certain formalities are complied g
with. c
This is a substantial adoption, as l
far as South Carolina is concern- t
|ed, of Congressman Stokes's Star s
j route mail delivery, which attracted ?
i so much attention all over the coun- 1
try last winter, and which The News c
and Courier very aoiy auvocaieu. \
Curiously enough, the proposition i
failed as a "rider" to the annual appropriation
hill only by the enforced t:
absence of Senator Quay from a con- u
ference committee during his re- li
markable trial for the wrecking of a a
bank. i
Representative Stokes was not t
daunted by this, however. He urged t
the department to undertake in an
experimental way what had failed
only through an accidental combina- |(
tion of circumstances.
This recent order of the postal c
authorities, in line with his sugges- ^
tion, secures for South Carolina i
substantially the benefits he proposed
for the entire country. j
When seen by your correspondent ,
today, Mr. Stokes expressed himself ^
as highly gratified with the result. ^
"The proposition," he said, "is too j
important, its benefits too patent, its
fairness too manifest, to admit of a
doubt that the feature will become j
permanent, not only in the postal ^
system of South Carolina, but of the
United States. It is here to stay." j.
Mr. Stokes attributes much of the
credit for this result to the intelli- ^
gent and vigorous fight made for the ^
measure by the daily and weekly
press of the country. Almost without
exception the press of South
Carolina warmly commended the tl
4 - ? ? ? -c K
proposition, ana tne rurai press ui
the United States took up the fight n
for it. . d

applying specially to South Caroli- n;
na: cl
''In addition to proposals for car- te
rying the mails on the routes and w
subject to the conditions herein- d
before set forth, proposals will also

requirements, as follows: h

The Fame of Dreyfus.
If the constant repetition of one's
name in the papers is to be famous, cl
then Captain Dreyfus is the most fa- F

since journalism began has any sin- ^

and so continuously in the newspapers
of the world as this artillery P
officer of thirty-nine. Fame has SJ

even his sufferings which have fas- c
cinated the attention of mankind. ^

the newspapers of Europe and P
America to expend hundreds of thou- tl
sands of pounds iu reporting the pro- jj

Dreyfus had merely been racked on t

As stated, they paid their proportionate

In round numbers the State will '
:>se about $2,600, the Carolina Bank 1
bout $5,500. These two items, in
onnection with the amount the '
ond8men have paid, do not make j
p the full amount, but other small|
r items, which either the Stale or
lie bank will lose, will be fully (
hown when an official statement is
lade of all transactions as learned i
'oui the very voluminous report of j
he investigating committee.
If Col. Neal comes here and pays
p what he is due and the rest of
le amount lost by reason of his bad
usiness judgment, it willbe acapted.
But Attorney General Bel- t
nger will not accept any amount (
ith which to reimburse bondsmen. I
ol. Neal will have to pay that to 1
lem personally. 1
One of the interesting features of ^
le whole matter is a check received
y Mr. Bellinger from Senator Tillian
in settlement of the amount
ue by him. The check was for ^
109.06 and was drawn on the Cafolia
National Bank" of this city. The
heck was turned over to Superin- J
mdent Griffith, of the Penitentiary,
ho receipted in full for the amount
Before the check was sent Senator t
illman had some correspondence g
ith Attorney General Bellinger. v
[e said that the charge of $ 12 against c
im as made by the committee was |
>r convict work done around the t
inces and grounds of the Executive [
[ausion. This he did not believe he t
ught to pay and Mr. Bellinger |
,>reed with him on this point. ^
As to the hrick he got from Col. f
eal, the Senator said he wascharg- (j
1 $5 per thousand, while the mark-. v
; price on the day he received them, j
i Augusta, was $4 per thousand. s
[r. Bellinger found this to he a fact i
id charged him $4 per thousand, t
lus the freight, which amounted to
2. >
Senator Tillman also paid for oats s
fceiyed from Col. Neal, which did
nt appear on the books, and which ^
b acknowledged that he had gotten,
ut that Neal had never sent him a v
ill, though asked to do so. At the
larket price at the time the oats ,
ere worth $16. a
The committee found that Senator r
illman owed $117 and a few cents. v
aking off the $24 for the two items
lentioned, that would leave him
wing $93. But at the Senator's sug- ?
DStion Mr. Bellinger added $16 to j
mt, making the amount $109.06. j
Nobody else of all those who got c
esks, hat racks, etc., have sent in j
hecks for what they owe and the
otidsmen are going to call on them j
> pay up. They do not like the idea
f paying for furniture just for the fun i
f the thing and allow otlmr people t
) use it.
is also likely that Mr. J. J. Fret- I
ell, of Anderson, will be asked to 11
ay up $387.17. He got some oats (
om Col. Neal, as superintendent, y
lit at the instance of Col. Neal <
harged it to his account with Mr. I
retwell. Of course Mr. Fret well is j I
1 no way a party to the fraud, but I
aving confidence in Col. Neal, 1
lOUght it would be settled with the > t
'enitentiary. As it was not, it is i
Slid that be can be held legally
ssponsible for the amount. j.
In the statement of Col. Jones ji
ppears the amount of $(>38.29 for j i
ommissary supplies obtained by j i
!ol. Neal during six years. The! i
resent bondsmen have only been, on j '
he bond for four years, and they he- i1
ieved that a rebate should be al-j<
3wed them for what was taken dur- j <
ng the two years they were not on j <
he bond. Col. Jones called on the j
attorney General about this matter I <
his morning, but the Attorney Gen- I <
ral held that, while "six years'' J i
rere mentioned, that period cover- ;
ug the period of the investigation,!
he books really showed that ail of I
his omciai misconuuet oa-iim-u
vithin tlie four years for which
jondsmen are responsible. Taking
t at an average it would he only
ibout $100 a yeuriior about $85 for
?ach of the bondsmen, and they will
aot kick at that.

low enough to keep the crowd on the
The first ceremony to-day was the
presentation at the City Hall of a
gold loving cup to the Admiral by
Mayor Van Wyck, on behalf of the

hoarded the Patrol, which steamed
to the Battery, where the city's i
^uest was met by a committee. Then
Admirai Dewey accompanied by the '
reception committee, and escorted by
Squadron A and a detail of mounted i
police, proceeded up Broadway to '
the City Hall. All along: the street ,
were cheering: crowds and City Hall x
Park was filled to its limit with people,
who shouted a noisy, enthusias- i
tic welcome as Dewey came in sight.
The mayor had just reached the ^
platform in front of the building
when Admiral Dewey came up- A
stairs. Capt. Lamberton, Lieut. .
Brumby, with Chauncey M. Depew, ?
Levi P. Morton and Richard Croker
followed, and then came the other 1
jfficers of the Olynipia and the re- f
maining members of the committee. r
By this time hie military and naval
officers in the mayor's office and the c
prominent citizens realized that f
Dewey had qoine, and they made a

who arrived a minute late. t<
Rear Admiral Schley climbed over

>rher naval officers, but Governor ^
Roosevelt remained behind. One of 0
lis staff rushed up to Capt. Cope- h
and, of the police squad, and whislered
'The Governor feels slighted." c
The gate was opened again and Col. g
Roosevelt took his place within the b

Admiral Dewey evinced a desire
o shake hands with all the naval oficers
ai'id introduce them to the y
nayor. He almost hugged Rear Ad- r'
niral Schley and patted Capt. ^
Joghlan on the back. 0
As Dewey greeted Schley the crowd e
ient up cheer after cheer for "Dewey b
md Schley." _
As soon as the greetings were over p
he mayor began his speech, presenting
the city's loving cup. He a

Ulmiral Dewey began to reply by "

"It will be quite impossible for me,

Women as Farmers. g
Women who own and run their j(
irms, without any male assistance,
onstitute thirty per cent, of the P
inning population of Kansas and
Oklahoma. Women and girls who c
re now engaged in farm work in <5
[ansae constitute fifty per cent, of ^
lie farming population. This large *
ercentage is partly caused by the S
bsence of the Twentieth Kansas p
rolunteers in the Philippines, all
xcepting a very few of whom are
irmers, and who, upon going to war,
3ft their farm work in the hauds of
leir wives, sisters and sweethearts,
o say that these women-have fail- d
d to do their duty in cultivating the p
rops, would meet with as much q
lerited contradiction as to charge
le Twentieth Kansas with having e
een afraid to charge the enemy. *
In fact, Kansas will produce larger p
rops thisyear than any preceding t|
jason in the State's history. The
rheat crop will be a little short, but
lat was caused by a very cold win- f<
?r. Of every other cereal and farm
roduct there will be a suparabun- g(
ance. To the KansaR woman, with
er usual daring grit and obstinate 1
3solve, is due these excellent crops. A
he labor they have peformed merits o
11 the honor and wealth these crops 0
ring forth.
During times of peace thirty per a
ent. of the farmers in Kansas are il
romen, while Oklahoma comes for- tl
^ard with about the same percentge.
At present the Oklahoma wo- ^
len are slightly behind their Kan- P
as sisters in numbers, but not in the a
mount of work. Oklahoma women, ^
lthough they have not been as long ^
ngaged on farms, a?e more active
nd can do more work and get better
ssults. That their crops yield a o
irger acreage is due, somewhat, to
tie fertile soil, which is also new :
nd more productive than Kansas
itid. But between the women of the c
tate and Territory there is no jeal- C
usy. Each go about their own a
rork, bent upon making a large crop
r'ith the same earnest zeal as the
lost steadfast German farmer. The
umber of women who work on farms a
n Kansas will reach over5,000, while
lie entire number of farmers in the
tate aggregates 17,000, exclusive of
iiniilies. In Oklahoma the popula- P
ion is smaller, but the percentage is

Washington, Sept. 30.?President

the findings of the Court-martial in
the case of Cupt. O. M. Carter, and

decison of the President was actually
reached at the Cabinet meeting
yesterday, but the official announcement
was not made until to-day.
In the meantime a special officer had
been quietly ordered to New York,
where Capt Carter was placed under
arrest while enjoying luxurious
apartments at the New York Athletic
Popular sentiment undoubtedly
forced the President to take action
it this time, for Attorney General
3riggs has not submitted his formal >
*eport reviewing the findings of the
Jourt-martial. The verdict of the
2ourt-martial is sustained by the <
President in full, so that all the
political, social, and financial influ- '
?nces assembled under Carter's banler
failed to shake the decision of ]
;he Court-martial. At the White i
House it is said the President has <
lever doubted the guilt of Capt. 1
Jarter since the verdict of the Court- (
nartial was rendered, but he promsed
the late Frank Thompson, who
vas interested in Carter, that the
atter should be given every reason- '
ible opportunity to prove his inno- <
;ence before final action was taken. |
It now develops that former Senaor
Edmunds, who reviewed the '
;ase, was employed and paid by |
barter, and not by the Government, i
is generally supposed. It is well)
cnown that;|Mr. Edmunds's report h
vas not satisfactory to Carter. 1
It also turns out that the President <
vas deceived as to the actual status i
>f Wayne MacVeagh. The latter n
ias, more than any other man, been
nfluential in holding back the final ]
lecision, because in the early stages |
?f the case it was. thought that he j
vas simply acting as a iriend of g
barter. It now develops that he has

it this time caused some surprise in c
nilitary and political circles, but ?
he result is what was to be expect- .
d. The friends of Carter put up a 1
tubborn fight, and they expected at
east to secure a mitigation of a
ortion of the sentence. C

osed by Court-martial on Capt.

ras to-day issued from the war deartment
directing the execution of
lie sentence.
The verdict of the Court was as 0

''And the Court does therefore 1
entence the accused, Capt. Oberlin

Following is the formal approval

Appended to the .orders as given
.bove is the following:
"By direction of the Secretary of '
Var Capt. Oberlin M. Carter, corps
works at Savannah, Ga., and other
points in that district, which had
been under the supervision of Capt.
Carter. The charges mainly consisted
of a declaration that Carter
had entered into a conspiracy with
other persons, intending to defraud
the United States. It was alleged
in the charges that Carter and certain
parties had defrauded the

x/ aalVX/M - & V/* I I VIM T * ^VAA/,VW It* '
The charges resulted in a Courtmartial
which lasted several months,
and which was presided over by
Gen. Otis, now commanding in the
Philippines. The Judge Advocate
of the Court was Col. Thomas F.
Barr, and the Court consisted of
officers in nearly every branch of the
service and of high rank. The trial
resulted in the verdict and sentence
which was approved to-day.
The case has attained widespread,
notoriety on account of the financial
and social connections of Capt Car- ter.
No such consideration and no
such amount of time has ever been
given previously in a Court-martial
case. 'Hie reference to the Attorney
General is also something unusual,
but this action was taken, it is said,
to give the officer every possible
opportunity to prove his innocence.
The charges which are disapproved
are of minor importance and relate
to smaller items of river and
harbor works, in which it was alleged
Carter had defrauded the Government.
The main contentions of the
prosecution are sustained. The only
matter pending in the war department
in the Carter case is the proposition
to annul the contracts which
Carter made for river and harbor

New York. Sept. 30.?Capt. Oberiin
M. Carter was arrested early toJay
in this city by Assistant Adjt.
Glen. Simpson, who came on specialty
from Washington for the purpose.
Capt. Carter was taken to Governor's
island and handed over to Capt JB.
K. Roberts, the commanding officer,
with orders to keep strict guard an^ r
put Capt. Carter in close confinement.
Capt. Carter is now in g>ne of the
ipper casemate cells in Castle William.
L. L. Kellogg, of the law firm
)f Kellogg, Rose & Smith, called
jpon Capt. Roberts and asked permission
to see Capt. Carter.
After his visit to Capt. Carter Mr.
Kellogg said the prisoner was terribly
dejected, and seemed to realize
,hat there was no appeal from the
jentence. .
Capt. Roberts, in speaking of the
irrest, said; "It was the hardest
luty ever allotted to me as an officer
n the army to place Capt. Carter
inder arrest and have him placed
n close confinement. He was a
dassmate of my brother's, and as
iuch became friendly withjthe memjers
of my family. Of course, duty
s duty, and we have to obey orders."
Capt.-Robertssaid to-night: "Capt.
barter is securely locked up in a
ell alone under guard. Every preaution
will be taken that he doesx
lot escape, but he will be treated
nth all respect as a prisoner. He
iras nervous and very much affected
rhen he arrived here, and said that \
lis arrest had been a great surprise
o him. He will remain in Castle
Villiam until further orders from
Vashington are received, and then
>e taken to Fort Leavenworth, Kanas,
where he will serve his senence."
Capt. Roberts believes that Oarer
will be taken West about next
Vednesday. In the meantime the
nly visitors that will be permittfd
0 see him will be members of his
amily and counsel, and then only
n the presence of the commandant
f the post or his lieutenant, who is
fficer of the prison.
