PALMETTO POLITICS RED HOT South Carolina's Governor Bcsponds in Kind to tho Senior Senator's Attack Upon Him. Great Excitement in tho Crowd, and Two or Three Bows Imminent. Citaklestov, S. C., Juno 2L Tbe campaign meeting at Lancaster to-day was not unaccom panied by porao excitement, although it was not as lively as had teen eapected in view of yes terday s occurrences at Cheater. The guberna torial and degression il candidates had tho opening and wero followed by Senator Butler aDd Governor Tillman. Uutlermade an excel lent bpeecn, defending his cause In the Senate and expressing regret that he had been com pelled to reply to Tillman's charges In tho eplrlt ho had employed at Chester Uo insisted that he -would not permit anyono to slander and misrepresent him, and that ho would discuss and dissect Tillman's public rec ord when and whero and how he pleased. Ho denied the charge that had been circulated In Lancaster county that ho was an infidel and said on this point: 4I can rnly say that I was raised by a Chrls tlau mother, and 1 hare been married to a noble Chribtian nomau lor thirty-four years, and that tho charges that 1 am au infidel Is as untrue as it is unwarranted. I recognize the supremacy of a great and good God and the saving power of a great Saviour." Whon Governor Tillman was called he was re ceived with much choiring. Ho said In begin ning that office had not been sweet to him; that the whceis of state bad dragged along a stumpy road, and that tho records would show ho had dune more work than all tho Goernors since tho war. At Chester ho had not opened his mouth In reply to the indignities heaped upon him by Gen. Butler, which were fouler and blacker than had been made against any man. Yaucy bhor ard, who was out in tho crowd, cried out: 'ou took them." TILLMAN PASSES SOME COMPLIMENTS. Several hundred men at onco sprang to their feet In expectation of a row, and Got. Tillman shouted back In reply: m Yei, I tell you, you cowardly hound, why I took them, and I'll meet you whenever you want to I took them becruse I, as Governor of tho btate, could not allbrd to create a row itt a public gathering and havo our people murder each other like dogs " Mien ard answered, but his reply could not be heard. Ihe men around tho stand woro all in a commotion and yelling for Tillman, while the women in the audience began to run away. 1 Ulinau, Butler the chairman, and others called to the ladles-tocomo bads as the trouble was over, and they did bo Governor 'llllman waved his ban Js to tho crowd to sit don n and then cried out: A few puppies around here can hae their tails and necks cut off if they want to, or both n Continuing, h said: 'Gen. Butler protends that I hud made an imputation on his character. I'Iih insult was at Kock IIUL I said that the 1,W men had been hauled thore by some one to h u rah for him, and I asked if they had been bent there by a corruption fund. I had ridi culed th-m as Coxeyltes, as tools of corpora tions, aud 1 did say that Borne one paid their way there. POMEBODT HAD A COItnCFTIOX FCXD. I wanted to know who it was and I indicated that somebody had a corruption fund and did not know who had the distributing of it, and I did not charge him or any one else with using it. If the general superintendent of the Richmond andUanvtlle railroad did not dolt, and if not Cleveland, and if not the whisky ring, and If uot Wail street, some ono had raided a corruption fund to pay thesn men's fares hlch were to buy up yourfceuatorbhip. If he felt aggrieved at the Insinuation ns au old neighbor of mine In Edge field, could not ho have come to mo and said: "Did jou meau to Bay that 1 am responsible lor this' "That Is tho way he should have done if ho had been a gentleman, but he did not do this. He seamed to bo glad for an excuse to play tho role of a bulldozer. If over in Kdgefleld wo in sult each other there is generally a fight or a funeral af tern ard. General Butler had declared in an interview that he gave to the Associated Tress after tho Darlington row that be wanted the campaign conducted on a high plane, yet he charged me with being a braggart and a bully In that interview. General Butler, who was sitting, remarked: And I stand by it yet. Yet when I opened at Bock Hill I tried to address myself sololy to the issues, and his speech was full of innuendoes and personal suggestions. At Yorkvllle he jpoke of Issues, and I then exposed his Coxey business, and, what is more, I expect to keep it to his back at every meeting as a mus tard plaster until I get some kind of an explan ation.' COIET EtJTLEB HENCEFORTH. Turning to Gen. Butler, ho said: "Henceforth I shall caB you Coxey Butler." Gen. Butler (laughing): "That's all right; I don't care. Then Tillman went on to say: "In Edgefield men hare too much pride to talk of bully ragging. I tnought yesterday when the General dlgraced himself by calling tho Governor a bully and a coward and a bracgart and a thief by indirection that he, too, had too much Btate pride for such. I was mistaken; for ho out-in-uendoes, if such a thing Is possible." It wonld take a column to report all that Gov. Tillman said and all that the crowd said for and against him.. Two or three times there was Imminent danger of a row, but fortunately the affair passed on wlthont actual violence or bloodshed. - - - His Life Work His ."Monument. Louisville, Ky.t June 21. Rev. B.

HIS PUPILS ARE RELENTLESS Prof. JTebster Edgerly the Subject of an Indignation Meeting. HARTYN COLLEGE COMMOTION Irregularities of Management Are Charged. He it Said to Havo a Part That is Not Above Suspicion Significant Letter to the Faoultr Aliases He Uied. Prof. Webster Edgerly, principal of tho Mar tyn College of Oratory, was tho cause of an In dignation meeting last night of students, grad uates, and faculty of his schooL Tho professor, happily for himsolf, U enjoying the scenes round Genoa, Italy. The faculty of the college was represented by Rov. Franklin J. Miller, Rev. Charles C Mor hart, and Dr. Charles T. Caldwell. Tho cause of the outburst of feeling was that President Edgerly would not allow tho senior class of 94 to graduate, although he had pub licly advertised in a circular that "tho present graduating class', both individually and colled lely, stands without a peer in the history of Martyn College." The committee In charge of tho meeting lost no time nor spared themselves iu their labor to get underneath the methods of managing the In stitution. W. M. Mourer presided and C A. Harbauch acted as secretary. No action of a definite character was taken. It was slated that tho real object of the meeting was simply to talk on the matter, so that tho public could be informed as to tho way that tho college was run. At his request Secretary Hor baugh read tho following commlcatiou, which bad boen sent to the members of the faculty and which was not replied to: LETTEH TO THE FACULTY. You are doubtless awaro of a feeling of dissat isfaction among the pupils wno have attended Martyn College during the term of schooljust closed, resulting. In part, from the refusal of its president to grant diplomas to those who stood the requisite examinations, although he himself has declared tuat "theptesent graduating class, both Individually and collectively, stands with out a peer In the history of Martyn College " We assure you, however, that the dissatisfac tion of the senior class, who were refused diplo mas. Is not the only sentiment afioat against the college, but merely au incident; that dissatisfac tion is shared by tho pupils and patrons who have known the institution since its organiza tion. W e feel sure that you cannot but regret that such an unfavorable sentiment should exist against any Institution of art or learning, but es pecially so against ono with which your name is connected. At a meeting held by the pupils a few even ings since, of which you are already cognizant, there were present those wuo havo been ac quainted with the workings of the college from its Infancy, and also something of the previous history oMts present head. It is unnecessary tor us to burden you with a request for the solu tion of all the questions advanced by those In at tendance, but we trust you will be able to ex plain the following, viz.: 1. Why has the college so many names' 2. Why was a Summer course In elocution ad vertised over the country and then nor hold? 3. Why are two catalogues published, one for circulation in Washington and one for out-of-town circulation? 4. W hy aro out-of-town catalogues different from city catalogues 5. Why are tho names of the faculty given In the out-of-town catalogue and not In the cata logue for W ashlngton? CL Why are the names of people placed In the catalogue as members of the faculty without the knoledgeorconsontof such persons; especially when such persons positively decline to be in any way connected with tho college 7. Why did the eighty entertainments, lecture, etc, promised as a part of the course for lbSCf-91 never take place hy did the prom ised banquets fall to materallzc? Why a great many other things promised in the course but not full! lied1 b. Is Webster Edgerly's standing In tho dra matic profession such as to enable him to assist meritorious pupils In j&ecuring positions In the profession? Has his influence ever been Instru mental in securing positions for any of his pupils either as teachers or on the stage? EDOEBLT, ALIAS EVERETT KALSTON. 9 Why does Webster Edgerly (Everett Rals ton), in hl3 circulars advertising his Health Club, 'positively guarantee" to permanently cure dis eases which the medical profession have pro nounced incurable? 10. Why were diplomas refused the senior class? 11. Why was no explanation offered for such refusal? 12. Why did the commencement notice in the Washington Post lead tha public to believe that all the pupils participating In the entertainment were graduates Who wrote the notice li W hy wre tho diplomas signed by Webster Edgerly and Edmund bhaftesbury when both are ono and the same person? 14. Why are there twelve In the faculty and only one to determine the standing of the clas? 15. Why are the petty prejudices of the presi dent given weight In determining the standing of pupil irrespective of merit? , 16. Why doe- a chartered Institution with a faculty of twelve (on paper) permit but one member of that faculty to pass Judgment on the merits of a pupil, and from whose Judgment there Is no appeal 17. Why does tho Institution obtain testimon ials in a questionable manner? IS. Why does Webster Edgerly puff bhaftes bury Everett Ralston, of Health Club fame, and King Wallace, the novolist? Why do they all pull one another? Who knows any of them but Edgerly?' 19 Whydoe4 Webster Edgerly buy "Frog-in-your-throat," sold by all druggists for 10 cents per box, paint them with a coat of carbolic acid, and dispose of them to the credulous public at 5U cents per box, as a cure for certain internal diseases? 20. Whv did Albert W. Edgerly discontinue practice of law in New England? 21. Why is it desirable to keep the irregulari ties of the Instltutiou from tho notice of the pub lic by endeavoring to influence the press? We are unanimous in declaring that tho man ner tn which Martyn College is conducted by W ebster Edgerly shall be brought tn the public. It Is only Justice to the future would-be patrons of the institution that such steps should be taken. We would be pleised to receive an early reply to this communication, as It Is not our desire to m!sepeent any one connected with tho Insti tution. W illiam E. Mowrer, IL Frank Alden, & McMIchaeL William Hurst, Francis C. Gideon, G. L Anderson, Charles Uarbaugh, Richard lappan, and M. W. Howard, very respectfully pupils of Martyn College. Rov. Franklin J. Miller, professor of voice culture, said he had known since November lost that there was dissatisfaction existing among the students.

GROSVENOR'S FIERY WORDS. lie Denounce, the Sugar Trust "Cor ner's" Purposes to Vote for the Antl-Option BUI.

Grosvenor, Berry, 'Wheeler, Stook dale and Fence in favor ot the the bill, and Messrs. Covert, Bartlett, and Boatner against it. Mr. Grosvenor'i speech was altogether the best effort. "The way to help the farmer," said he, "was to retain a law under which the produc tion ot sugar increased 50 per cent., and if you want to do something for agriculture, do not turn over the sugar question to the sugar trust, located in New York, which is the most villainous, the most oppressive, the most ras cally institution in the country. Republican applause. He proposed to vote for the bill because he thought that at least some effort should be mode to aid the agriculturists, and because it would relieve them ot the fear that they were being oppressed by unjust legislation, and moreover because he believed that cor ners did operate to injure the farmer. The question ot amendments having ob truded itself, the chairman decided that the best way to settle it finally would be by hav ing tho committee rise and the question de cided In the House. Accordingly the commit tee arose, and after some squabbling a com promise was effected, whereby the order of Wednesday was modified by closing general debate lost evening, and allowing two hours after tho morning hour to-day for debate under the flve-minute rule, and the offering of amendments, 'after which Mr. Hatch was allowed an hour additional to close debate Perfect Teast for Fakirs.

CHANDLER IS NO "BABOON" : He Unmercifully Scores Populist Allen for So Calling Him. IT MADE A SFICY EPISODE Outcome of Insinuations that Allen "Bar gained" Away His Vote on the Tariff. Both Charge Unparliamentary Conduct Hot Words Pass Between Them. The sensational feature of the day In the Senate yesterday was tbe personal attack made upon Mr. Allen, the Nebraska Populist, by Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire. The latter scored Mr. Allen unmercifully for applying the epithet "baboon" to him Wednesday; but in the Nebraska Populist he met a foeman worthy of his steel. At tho conclusion. of Senator Hill's speech Mr. Chandler roso to a question ot personal privilege in connection with the passage at arms between Senator Allen and himself. He had, he explained, heard what Mr. Allen had said in his reply to him only in a fragmentary fashion, and had missed entirely the oppro brious epithet, "baboon," applied by the Sen ator from Nebraska to himself. Mr. Allen, who was in the chamber, moved over near to Mr. Chandler when the latter began. "The Senator from Nebraska," Mr. Chand ler said, "on yesterday stated that when I charged that his vote had been bargained for I stated what was false and what he believed I know to be false when I made it. "I did not make any insinuation," said Mr. Chandler, "but what I stated I believed to be true. I charged in effect that ho moved to place lumber on the free list under tho threat that If it were not so placed he would vote agulnst the bill. The truth of that charge is contained is this Record. After the sugar vote had been taken yesterday, the Senator from Nebraska arose and again udertlsed to the Democratic managers tho fact that his vote on tho passage of tho bill was doubtfuL He then retired from the chamber and in a few moments came back nnd moved to place lumber, rough and planed, on the free list. "I bad understood that an agitation had been going on on tho other side of the cham ber to have certain kinds of dressed lumber placed on the dutiable list, when suddenly all opposition on that side goes down before tho Senator's motion to placo lumber on the free list. That motion was made immediately after he had publicly announced that his vote wa3 doubtful. It was in tbe bargain. I be lieved it then; I believe it now. I simply in quired of the .Senator whether the bargain bud been closed; whether it was complete. I made the inquiry and I do not think he was warranted in becoming indignant and using tbe unparliamentary language of which he was guilty. TOO SENSITIVE ABOUT BABOAIXS. "I do not see why Senators should be so sensitive on the subject of the bargains that are being made here. It was distinctly stated by the Senator from Maryland (Mr. Gorman) in a carefully prepared speech that neither the House bill nor the bill as it came from tbe Finance Committee could command a majority of votes on this floor, and that there fore concessions, arrangements, bargains, or anything vou choose to call tnem, had been made to secure such a majority and effect the passage of the bill. "The Senator from Texas (Mills), and the Senator from Missouri (Vest), repeatedly have bemoaned the hard conditions that made these bargains necessary. That such bar gains were made is not only an open secret, it is an open avowal. Yet, when 1 venture to allude to a epeclllc bargain and bring it home to the Senator from Nebraska, he resents it as an Intimation ot corruption, and replies to it with opporbrlous epithets in unparliament ary language. Why does the Senator feel resentful when I inquire whether tho bargain is closed so that we shall no longer expect to see him dodge in and out. The whole thing was open and patent to the whole country, and tho Senator Instead of becoming indig nant, ought to have calmly admitted that be bad been landed and secured In the Demo cratic camp. "I submit," said Mr. Chandler, turning to Mr. Allen, who sat within twenty feet of him across the aisle,"tbat under the circumstances the Senator was not justified in tho words be used. I havo never used opprobrious epi thets or unparliamentary language on this Boor, no matter how pointed my remarks may hae been. I never nave and I never will. "I regrot," said he deliberately in conclu sion, "I havo discoered that tbe early sur roundings of this Senator before he entered this body were such as not to allow him to observe tbe common courtesies which all gen tlemen regard even in the most heated parti san debate. Tho Senator from Nebraska is to be pitied rather than censured lor what he oould not helD." ALLEN PALE BUT CALM. A dead silence greeted this remarkable at tack. Mr. Allen was pale but calm when he rose to rcplv. "This is the fourth time," he began, in a low but steady voice, "that the Senator from New Hampshire has seen fit to speak ot 'bargains' tn connection with my vote. I do not know whether the lacguace is parliamentary. I am not skilled in par liamentary procedure. But I do know it is untruo and ungentiemanly. "I think be made the insinuation deliber ately, knowing it was false. He has tried to place me in tbe position of a trafficker of 'votes. Tbe insinuation or stigma that I have trafficked with my vote, that I have agreed to voto for this measure In consideration ot con cessions made or to be made, is untrue. "If I were wberol could mako it plainer," he added, looking Mr. Chandler in the eye, "I would make it plainer. I made a motion a fuw weeks ago to strike lumber from the dutiable list, as I had a right to do. I havo a right to get what I can for my people. I am not bound to the Democratic or Republican party, but am un bumble representative ot a new party. As such I am more or less a skirmisher between old party lines. "I repel tho low, dirty insinuation ot tho senior Senator from New Hampshire," he said In conclusion, raising his voice until it rang throughout the chamber, "and I reiter ate and reaffirm with all tho energy I possess what I said j esterduy." "What tho Senator has said," said Mr. Chandler, jumping to his feet as Mr. Allen sat down, "only emphasizes what I said a month ago, namely, that be does not comprehend the courtesy that characterizes debate in this body." The Senate sat breathless for fully a minute after Mr. Chandler resumed bis seat. This closed the episode. Across the Ocean. L. W. Howard, the American canoeist, was hopelessly beaten in the two races at Bowne End yesterday.
