Since the conference this forenoon,, when the company declined to rein? state the four men discharged for "disloyalty to the company," which it has definitely developed grew out of an effort to organise a union?the striking motormen and conductors have remained pretty much at their] homes or walking about the streets. There is a conspicuous absence of bolsterousness or drink, and quite a little comment on the fact that the conductors gave residents along the bell lines notice before the strike was ordered, and that they carefully de? posited all cars In the barns in good condition before deserting them. 9 A meeting of the men on the Au? gusta-Alken Interurban line Will be held at 1 o'clock tonight, when a letter will be formulated and for? warded to the company, notifying the corporation that the cars on that line will continue in uninterrupted operation unless the company makes sn effort to operate cars on ths city division with Its office force, or with? out making some effort to settle or arbitrate the city division strike. In that event the interurban men will give residents along that line ample notice md then run all cars into the Saras snd leave them. roRTY-SEVE* DOLLARS IN FINES Recorder Had Busy Time Thursday With Sinners.

BATTLES IN INTERIOR OF CHINA CONTINUE. Communication With Hankow Not Restored?Americans Prepare lor Trouble in Peking. Peking. Oct 31.?Fighting between the rebel forces and the imperialism continues. It is believed that the rebels are making a determined re? sistance. Late advices received here Indicate that Hankow city was not retaken by the imperialists, although Gen Yin Tchang captured the rail? way station immediately to the north. Contrary to promisee, howevei, the railway service has not yet been re? sumed, nor has telegraphic commu? nication been re-established. The fact that the Associated Press cor? respondent with Yin Tchang has sent no word from the field in two days may indicate that the censor will not permit him to report unfavorable news. In the meantime there ere serious dangers along the railway lino be? tween the war minister's position and Peking. Disaffection among the troops and the people has prevented communication between the various sections of the loyal army. Yuan Shi Kai started for the front yesterday, and now is at 61 n Yuan Chau. The policy which he will adopt is eagerly awaited. Negotiations looking to a settlement between Yuan Shi Kal and the revolutionary leaders have been under way. The Americans will hold a meeting at the legation tomorrow to decide upon definite measures for the!.* own protection. Foreign troops are guarding the mission houses In Peking. It Is believed that serious trouble In the capital will be averted, but the Americans, like other foreign? ers, are preparing for emergencies Detachments of British, French and other guards have already been dis? tributed to their respective missions, which He outside the legation quar? ter. Many Americans are among the foreigners who are seeking refuge here from the Interior. There is only one American family at Tai Yuan Fu. which is in the hands of the revolu? tionaries, but there are many through? out the province of Shan Si. The native press has received the reform edicts favorably. The reform? ers In Peking are divided Into two parties, the extremes, mainly South? erners, who Insist upon the expulsion of the Manchus, and the moderates, who are numerous throughout the empire. The latter are indifferent as to whether the dynasty Is Manchu or Chinese, but they want great adminis? trative changes and believe that dras tic measures are necessary to give the reforms a fair start The vital question is whether the two wings will be able to unite.

Smith, Johnson. President Banks made his annual report. A .motion to lay before the executive committee the matter of al? lowing the university and Clemson to play their annual football game at the fair, without being taxed for $200 for the use of the grounds, met with such a storm of opposition that it was withdrawn. The case of Clemson and the uni? versity was stated by W. A. Metts and P. H. Nelson, who told the society that the students of the two institu? tions contributed toward the support of the football teams and needed :11 the receipts from the fair week game to pay the training expenses incurred. The annual game, they said, drew thousands of people to the fair who would otherwise stay away. They also told the society that it were possible that in future the game might be played on the university's athletic field, If the payment of the $200 for the gridiron at the fair grounds was Insisted upon. The suggestion that the executive commltteo look into the advisability of relieving the university and Clemson of this expense met with stich over? whelming opposition that it was withdrawn. On the motion of J. B. Wingard of Lexington, section 41 of the rules of the societv was stricken out. It reads: "The secretary Is obliged to put the name and address of each exhibitor on the entry card." Mr. Wlngard's substitute for this rule, which was adopted, reads SS follows: "All en? tries of exhibits shall be made by du? plicate numbers ami in duplicate en try books, the number of the exhibit shall be put in the original hook, end its corresponding number, together With the name of the exhibitor, in the duplicate entry hook." The amendment of this section of the rules, it was said, would relieve the judges of the embarrassment of making awards when the name ?.f the exhibitor of the article was in plain view on the entry card W, A. ciark of Columbia, chairman of the historical committee, the other two members of which are W. O. THE CHINA WAR. AN ROW RETAKEN BY IMPER? IAL FORCES, Rejx>rted That Hostilities will Be Kns]>endcd For a Time Pending Negotiation* Between leader of Rebels and New lni|>< r.m Premier. Peking, Nov. I.??The war offke as received a report that the Olperteltsts forces have recovered Hankow and massacred the popu? lation. Peking, China, Nov. 1.?The ap? pointment of Yuan Shi Kai today as premier of China will be followed by a cessation of hostilities of Imperial? ists and the opening of negotiations with Gen. Li Yuen Heng, leader of evolutionists at Hankow. An Imperial edict providing for im? portant administrative changes also accepts the resignations of the mln* Isters, but until Yuan 8hl Kal returns Prince Shlng will continue to perform the duties of premier and the present cabinet will remain in office. All the ministers attended a secret session of the national assembly today which it is understood practically agreed to the demands of the disaf? fected Manchu troops. A member of the war board was appointed to con? fer with the troops and express the assembly's views.. The assembly also discussed the recent loan for which arrangements had been made by a Belgian and French syndicate. The ministers explained that the loan was needed for the purpose of carrying on field operations. It wa? flnaly decided to refer the matter by telegraph to Yuan Shi Kai. The parle among the people of Peking which ensued after the issu? ance of the first Imperial edict has been largely dispelled. Reports re? ceived here that Tun Nan Kl and Fu King have gone over to (he revo? lutionists. Soldiers In north China are avow? edly awaiting the action of Yuan Shi Kal. The government troops and the Yan Shi rebels are encamped not far apart. Apparently they do not Intend to fight for the present at least. TAFT BACK FROM TRIP.

Y., where he attended the annual ft, A. R. encampment. in the time he has been away, the president has traveled, counting side trips, about 15,000 miles and has vis? ited 26 States.

Va., for a four-day rest, and then be will "take the road" again for a trip to Cincinnati and several cities in Kentucky and Tennessee. As now planned this trip will end at Wash? ington November 12. Complaint has been made of chil? dren going on the roof of the Y. M. C. A. building and throwing from there at passersby. While this may be fine sport for the children, it is not enjoyable to thoso who pass b>, and the boys who h .ve heretofore engag? ed In the sport may get lnt"> trouble if they do not desist. All persons in? terested are invited to go through tho building at any time to make an in? spection of It, but those who do got visit the place for an orderly purpose are not wanted.

Duncan of Columbia. reported that his committee was ready to publish the history of the society as soon as the IInances of the organisation were in shape to advam & th< m the nscsa sary funds 11 p??y for printing the book. Mr. Clark Said that his ommit tee bad gathered much interesting data about the South Carolina Agri? cultural and Mechanical society from Its inception In ante bellum days to tho present time, it is hoped thai the history will be largely subscribed for by members of the society.
