King Alfonso hastened back lo Madrid from San Sebastian today and at once issued a decree proclaiming martial law and the suspension of constitutional guarantees throughout Spain.

Today marks a black chapter In Spain's history, for there was traged both at home and abroad.

The City Council held a regular meeting at 8 p. m. Tuesday, with Mayor W. B. Royle. Aldermen P. P. Finn. R. F. Haynsworth. J. R. Ligon and w. G. Stubbf present. A card was read from Alderman Wright, Chairman of the Committee on Auditor's report, asking for furth? er continuance for his committee, which was granted. Mr. Wright re? ported also that arrangements were about comypleted whereby the city would obtain a lower rate of interest on loans. Mr. Finn for the Committee of Public Works submitted report of work on streets for past four weeks, showing a total expenditure of $560. 50. The items of holiday time and al? lowance of half time to sick laborers was discussed. Mr. Ligon questioned the propriety of such expenditures, but acticm was postponed. Mr. Ligen reported for the Police Committee as follows: To the Honorable, the Mayor and A Mermen of the City of Sumter. S. C: Gentlemen?We beg to report that, as directed by your resolution at your last nxeetinp, we, on July 2'5, inst held a meeting and made Inquiry in? to the automobile accident on Wash? ington street the night of July 3, inst., the purpose, as directd, being to ascertain and fix the responsibility of said accident. As you are already aware, said accident was caused by the failure of liirhts being displayed on an exposed sewer trench, the auto? mobile running into same. Both the City Engineer and the Superintendent of Streets were pres? ent and from the frank statemnt of the City Engineer, alone, we find that the plumber who had done this work, had turned same over to him (the City Engineer) and been received by him, the-eby eronerntlmr the plum? ber of any carele-sness in the matter. The City Engineer advises that wh;fi he was actually in charge of the trench at the time of the accident, he ha,d requested the Superintendents of Streets to display lights at this piece for h'm and \\<i - under the Impression that he had done so. The Superin :? ndent Of Streets states that he did not understand that he was to dis? play these lights, and that through an Unfortunate misunderstanding be? tween these two gentlemen the lights were not dispaysd, hence the accident resulting. Therefore, we find that the re? sponsibility of said accident rests with the City Engineer, who had re? ceived and was in charge of the work, and that the matter of displaying the proper lights was simply a private matter, accommodation or courtesy between the City Engineer and tn< Superintendent of Streets and has no place in this Inquiry. Respectfully submitted by order of the committee. JAS. R. LI COX. chairman Police and Sanitary Com. Mr. Llgon asked what Offers had been received for purchase of Hos* Company No. 2 b>t and p so posed thai it be advertised again, with minimum price stated, reserving right to re? ject all bids. On Mr. Stubbs motion the minimum price was fixed at 1,2,000 and tin Fire Department Com? mittee was authorized to advertise ac? cording to Mr. Ligon'l suggestion. Mr. Finn for the Opera House Com? mittee stated that a contract had been made with Mr. Thomas Bradley for installation of calcium lights), Mr. s. H. Edmunds, Superintendent of Schools, appeared before Council and stated that Hon. r. I. Maiming desired to tender his resignation as a member of the City Board of Edu? cation, for the reason that when Mr. Manning had been elected to that position, It was assumed that be would not/become ;i trustee of Clem son College. But thai Mr. Manning had subsequently accepted the Trus? teeship of Clemaon ami thought the Council should have the opportunity of reconsidering his appointment as a local Trustee. Mr. Edmunds furth? er stated that he had been advised by the Attorney General of the state that no legal objection existed to Mr, Manning tilling both placet BJ a lite Trustee of the College under Mr. Clemson's will is not an officer as contemplated by tht?; Constitution f South Carolina. Mr. Ligon thought it would be a distinct loss to the city if Mr. Manning's resignation were ac? cepted; and on his motion the former appointment was confirmed by un snlmous vote. Mr. Finn reported that the Cit> Engineer had prepared a plat of the City's land at the rear of the Opera House. Which shows that there is suf? ficient space at that place for con? vict quarters. The committee in charge of the mfetter was authorized to have plans for a building prepared by an architect. On Mr. Ligon's motion, the City Engineer was directed to report to the Chief of Police, at 6 o'clock p. m., every day the number and location of all open Fewer trenches, so that the police may look alter them during the night and guard against accidents. Mr. Ligon suggested that an ordin? ance should be ad >pted by which the penalty for stealing a lantern from any ditch or excavation, where it may be placed as a danger signal, shall be one hundred dollars or thirty days la? bor. Mr. Finn said that complaints had come from citizens that the Superin? tendent of .Streets had stopped up the / I drain on Hurhy Avenue, and asked by what authority it had been done. City Engineer Lee stated that the drain in question had been discon? tinued, because it had been found necessary to lay the sewer pipe across it, on the same level. And that drainage at that point can be car? ried in other directions. Mr. Finn reportei that the drain , at the Electric Light building on Manning Avenue is not large enough to carry off the water, and suggested that 24 inch pipe ;>e laid at that point. The matter was referred to the Committee of Public Works with power to act. Mr. Ligon asked a^out the im? provement on South Main Street. In the absence of the Chairman of the Committee of Public Works no infor? mation was obtainable. Mr. Finn suggested that the author? ity of the City Engineer and Superin? tendent of Streets should be defined so as to avoid any conflict of orders or questions^ of responsibility. Mr. Lee, City Engineer, asked this be done as a guard against arccidents, but action was postponed to the next meeting. A petition was received from citi? zens asking that the arc light ordered for Oakland Avenue ai;d Purdy Street be placed at that corner and not re? moved further west, at has been sug? gested. Referred to the Cimmittee on Lights. It was ordered that a light be placed at the corner of Washing-*, ton Street and Oakland Avenue. v" Permission was granted to Mr. Per? ry Moses to repair a tenant house at j the rear of the Picwick Hotel. Re1 quest of Mr. W. M. Graham for per j mission to build a partition and stalls I to his stables on Hampton -\venue I was referred to the Fire Department Committee. Three ordinances were read, adopt? ed and ordered published, as follows: "An ordinance providing Ru?es for Driving Horses, HulCI and Cows through the streeU," "An ordinance to Pi event Accidents from Open ^ Trenches." "An ordinance to prevent the use of Profane or Obscene Lan- . guage Through Telephones." "An ordinance granting a Fran? chise to the Sumter Ice, Ljght and Power Company." was read and re? turned to the Committee for the pur? pose of making it more definite in certain provisions. The following resolutions of respect to the memory of Maj. H. F. Wilson, were unanimously adopted: "Whereas the members of thi* Council, in common with all citizens of Sumter, were shocked and grived by the tragic death of Mayor H. F. Wilson, on May 19th 1909. And whereas, he had served his State. County and city in positions of trust and Confidence, with faithfulness and ability, it is eminently appropriate that we express our sense of loss, and our appreciation of his distinguished services. Therefore he it Rt solved that in the death of Major Wilson, the State of South Carolina has lost a talented, true and patriotic son, who served her well in the halls of legislation and as a leader of her citizen-sol? diery, with the earnestness and loy? alty of Ids devote! nature. The Coun? ty and City of Sunder have lost a faithful officer and public spirited cit? izen, who had their highest welfare at heart, and who on many public occasions represented them as an ora? tor of rare power and eloquence. Resolved, That the sincere sym? pathy of this body be extended to Major Wilsons kinsmen. And that a page of our minute book be Inscribed to his memory. Marion Hotse, Bsq., on behalf of the Sumter Iron Works requested the privilege of using a traction engine for hauling heavy freight from the depots to their place of bttSlneSS and stated that it was absolutely neons sary to their business. The privilege was granted for the USS Of the engine on Dingle and Washington streets as far as the company's premises, on condition that they repair any injury to streets at their expense and assume responsibility Cor any and all dam? age which may result lrom use of the engine. Mr. Haynaworth moved that Conn* eil adjourn further meetings until the second Tuesday In September, subject to the call of the Mayor for attention to such matters as may arise, which cannot be postponed. The motion was adopted, Council then adjourned. Masons Meet. Manning. July It.?St. Peter's l?dge. No. f>4 A. F. M., conferred the K. A. degree upon Messrs H. H.
