A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION.
Recount of the Entire Vote May be j 15 the Result of Committee's Action. Columbia, Sept. 5.?The State Democratic executive committee has si resolved to make a thorough investi- C; gation of the recent primary, against m which charges of irregularity and el fraud in many sections of the State ve have been alleged. To that end the 01 committee has appointed a sub-corn- cl mittee of seven members, who are St charged with the duty of inquiring into all cases of alleged irregularity w and to report back to the State com- tt mittee. Pending the result of the h? investigation no tabulation of the it vote in the primary of August 27 cc will be made and no results declared, pi Consequently there will be no second tt primary next Tuesday for State offl- m cers, as would have been the case tt ' normally, and no date for a second primary has been or can be fixed. m The sub-committee appointed to w conduct the investigation is composed of the following members of the State ai committee: W. F. Stevenson, chair- tb man; T. B. Butler, J. B. Park, W. B. in Wilson, Jr., R. M. Jefferies, J. D. Biv- cc ens and J. M. Greer. Four of these tb are Jones men and three of them di Blease men. he All the Evidence Wanted. vc to The committee will meet next . 01 Wednesday at noon in the library or ^ the State house. All parties inter- , j st ested and their attorneys are invited to be present at the meetings and all persons having evidence to offer of . frauds or irregularity in the primary are urged to lay it before the committee. The committee is determine\ ed to go into the whole matter thorot oughly and to make a full report to the executive committee for its guid\v ance. The State committee passed a resolution requesting county committees to hold the second primary for c&unty offices next Tuesday irrespective ^ of the postponement of the State primary. This was not an instruction but merely a request and the county committees have freedom of action ec in the matter. Judge Jones's contest of the election has been widened to include every box in the State. This may make necessary a recount of the en- C< tire vote. . M Local Contests Decided. *e It is purposed by the sub-commit- 1D tee to make a most searching investigation of all the circumstances attending the conduct of the primary. Tt ia desired that the investigation be concluded as promptly as circum- Uc stances will permit that the results ^ IT of the primary may be declared or whatever other course may be deem- ^ ed desirable may be followed. At the afternoon session of the committee action was taken on sevUJ eral local contests. By a vote of 19 . to 17 the action of the Dorchester , o I county committee in declaring J. H. Whetsell the nominee for county 3.1 treasurer was reversed and C. B. Dukes, the contestant, was declared .. . er the nominee. Dial's and Talbert's Protests. cc It having been brought to the attu tention of the committee that T. J. ^ Moore, of Spartanburg, and D. D. McColl, of Bennettsville, were ineli- ai gible to serve as presidential electors, D. W. Willis was chosen an elector from the Third and J. C. Mace an elector from the Sixth district. cc The protests of W. J. Talbert and Ci N. B. Dial against the nomination of to Senator Tillman were received and bi action deferred until a later meeting d< of the committee. The ground of protest is that Senator Tillman did not er participate in the campaign and that m he failed to file a statement of his st expenses as required by law. a in Decree Enjoins Major Richardson. "( Columbia, Sept. 3.?Judge Geo. W. 0f Gage, this morning temporarily en- tt joined the comptroller general from 0i paying money on warrants issued by cl H. W. Richardson, chairman and sc treasurer of the commissioners of in the Old Soldiers Infirmary. The pe- ec tition for injunction was filed by tl Attorney J. J. McMahan, alleging p] that Commissioner Richardson had fc been receiving a salary of $100 a s< month and that $50 per month had d< been paid to Dr. F. P. W. Butler. tr It is alleged that this is contrary to d< the law as commissioners are not to receive any reimbursement for ser- z: vices other than their actual expenses n incident to attending meetings of the ts board. The order is made returnable on September 9th. Major Richardson is a strong sup- C porter of Gov. Blease and a fight has T been waged on him by some of the Is old soldiers at the Confederate heme, alleging that he was attempting to r dictate to them as to how they should vote' G Robinson Given 18 Years. "W hi Orangeburg, Sept. 7.?Arthur R Robinson, a young white man, con- lv victed yesterday of manslaughter for r< the killing of his brother, Mike, was R this afternoon sentenced to 18 years si in the penitentiary by Judge Rice, tc who refused to grant a new trial. w ELECTION" RUMORS. lease and Jones May Run in Gei eral Election. Columbia, Sept. 6.?That the wid< )read debauchery of the late Sout arolina primary will lead to settl* ent of all differences at the genen ection the second Tuesday in N< imber now seems the predominar )inion among those who are i osest touch with members of th :ate executive committee. ( While the sub-committee whic ill probe charges of, crookedness a le polls beginning next Wednesda is given out no intimation of wha intends recommending to the fu unmittee if fraud charges ar oven, it is generally conceded tha le risk of fraud in a second pr ary would be almost as great as i ie first primary, and it is this dar ir of illegal practices that the con ittee, with all good Democrat! ish to avoid. Ordering the names of Judge Jone id Gov. Blease before the voters a ie general election is entirely witl the legal rights of the executiv mmittee. If affairs take this tur e election will undoubtedly be cor icted with fairness as only thos ^a.rinE' registration certificates ca )te. The registration books close -day. This precludes the over zea! is and illegal voters from gettin lsy at a late date. There'll be n uffing the boxes if the committe akes this disposition of the case. That the State is a veritable seett g caldron of discontent over th anner in which the primary wa inducted cannot be disputed. Froi 'ery quarter the rumbling of publi )inion can be heard. The primary system is on tria rill the committee vindicate it? The committee declares it wi low no man nor set of men in th scharge of its duty. Lookin raight ahead with no object in vie1 it to determine the truth, the con ittee will probe to the very heai : the crookedness, turning on th ?ht and applying the remedy neec I.

The juices of the iv ;s stomach had kept the silver in a \7 LC highly polished condition. Some of c 3* the knife blades were rusty. t! ie . r< it Sorriest Since Reconstruction Days. s. .
