ME. KENAN DEMANDS THAT IT BE
The Examination Made by the Legisla
tive Board of Visitors Characterized
as a Mere Sham Reconsideration of
the Vote on the Insurance Bill De
feated—The New Bills of the Day.
Atlanta, Ga.. Aug. 4. In the Senate
to-day the opponents of the insurance bill
tried to have tiie voto of yesterday recon
Biderod, hut failed.
The following new bills were introduced:
By Mr. Brantley of the Third—To regulate
the inspection and sale of naval stores.
By Mr. Daniel, of the Thirteenth—To pre
vent the spread of hydrophobia.
The bill introduced by Mr. Powell to de
fine and regulate fidelity insurance passed.
The now Senator, Mr. Smith, of the
Twenty-first district, was assigned to the
Committees on Internal Improvements,
Agriculture, Lunatic Asylum, Academy for
the Blind, Petitions and Engrossing.
The balance of the day was spent in first
reading of House bills and, second, reading
of all bills.
In the House.
lu the House to day Mr. Preston, of Jas
per county, offered a resolution to adjourn
to Monday on account of the great damage
by the storm, so that the members could go
home and look after their affairs. The reso
lution was tabled.
Mr. tttewart, of Rockdale, moved to re
consider the action of the House yesterday
in adopting the resolution of Air. Kenan for
the uppointiuent of a special committee to
visit the lunatic asylum and report upon its
Mr. Stewart suid that the regular com
mittoe on the lunatic asylum had under
consideration at the time of the adoption of
the resolution the appointment of a sub
committee to visit the asylum and maketbo
investigation sought. He thought it dis
courteous to the cor.miitti** to tuko this
matter out of tlieir hands. It was a reflec
tion upon the committee to assume that
they would cover up anything.
Mr. Kenan, of Baldwin, said that he hud
had sixteen years experience its the manage
ment of the asylum, and he thought ho knew
tile necessity for the investigation. He had
been for twenty days urging the Asylum
Committee to make it. He had uot found
one of the committee sent to the asylum
last winter who would say that he had made
a satisfactory examination into the matters
complained of. He denied that he was op
posed to the asylum. The House had waited
patiently for a full report upon its condition
A MEKE SHAM.
The last examination was a mere sham.
He did not think the House ought to gratify
a few gentlemen of the Asylum Committee.
He declared emphatically that there were
wrongsat the Asylum that ought to he right
cd.He read from the reports of the institution
to show a grand increase of the sums paid
for wages and for stationery, etc., until they
amouat to over $50,00(1. He asked where
were the results of the scientific treatment
of the patients. The rejiorts falleel to show
them. He asked whether the House would
go into the child's play of reconsidering its
action with these facts before it. He said that
a white woman had been buried among ne
groes, and when her relatives sought to
have her remains exhumed the fii-st body
dug up was that of a negro woman, show
ing gross carelessness in murking the resting
places of the dead. The asylum had never
had a thorough examination since Gov.
(Smith had sent Dr. Bozeman there. He
called ui>on uny member to rise and affirm
that there had been such an investigation,
and no one reported. He moved to table
the motion, which prevailed.
THE REFORMATORY BILL.
The special order was Dr. Felton's re
formatory bill. In committee of the whole
Mr. Arnbeim resumed his speech inoiiim
sition. He objected to the original bill be
cause it iucluiled all convicts. This had
been amende I in the sulutitute. He ob
jected second because it created three tms
tec; with power to create, any number of
office*. That still remains in the substitute.
He objected third because it vests the trus
tess with power to fix the salaries
of the oflicere created bv them. This was
an extraordinary delegation of p< >wer —one
not given to the governor, lie objected
fourth because upon the commission of the
must trival offenses their perpetrators must
lie sent to the house of eorr'ctlon chained
with hardened female convicts. This pro
vision had been cork-screwed Into
the bill. He objected fifth because
by its provisions the most liardemsl female
convicts and youthful offenders were to lie
confin’d and worked together. That had
not been eliminated by the substitute.
These youths were to be worked with,
females who have forgotten their re
spect for both God and man. He
objected, sixth, because the record of
penitentiaries shows that most convicts un
dor lt> years of ago are sentoneed forliienous
crime*. He objected seventh, liecause no
provision is made for furnishing discharged
convict* with clothes, etc., as the law now
requires. He objected eighth, because the
co-t of this reform prison would bo u ter
rifle and continued drain upon tho treasury
of the State. He contended that the ap
propriation made bv the bill would be only
a small portion of uie expense of the sys
mr. ahxhkim'h srßSTiTrm
Mr. Amheini hail the Clerk read as a part
of his argument a substitute for the bill
which be intended to offer, viz.: “A bill to
acquire the present lessee., to establish dis
tinct and setiamto camps for all female <swi
victs and all male convicts under lb years
of age. these camp* to be kept distinct and
aeparate from those of male convicts over
16.” His substitute contains elaborate de
tails for carrying out this main provision.
K also requires the separation of the white
and black convicts aiuhproscrilioK the hours
of lalxir, and makes other requirements for
the humane treatment of the convicts.
Mr. Arnlieun. resuming, said that the bill
just mad embodied nis kh<a. on the subject
of convict earn ami punishment He was
aware that the gentleman from Bartow had
cut off his substitute by offering a p: ior
substitute, and that be was left no altenm
Live but to oppose lioth the bill and the sub
stitute. Ho agree 1 with the gentleiqpn from
Bartow that Christianity was a great civil
i usr. Standing here as a Jew, lie gave this
testimony of its glorious effects, but the dec
alogue also contained grand truths and ob
ligations which should l>e enforced, and
when it is iiropot* and to tax the honest citizen
tlrat tho criminal muy l*> support’d in idle
ncsi, be ojpxd it, and hud the approval
of his own o. nacionce, and he doubted not
of the divinity.
Mr. Simmons, of (Sumter, opposed the
bill. He said lie was prepurid to hoar such
sentiment* as tlione attend* by (lie gentle
man from Bartow from Harriet Beecher
SStowe. but he was surprised to hear them on
this floor. He relat’d a poetic dream which
lie had of the olysiumof the gentleman from
Bartow, hu‘ hi’ dream was dispelled by u
view of tht real system proposed. Ho
deprecated the raking up of questions calcu
lated to create divisions between the races.
AN OKI) FIGURE.
Tho gentleman from Bartow, with the
banner of Prohibition in one band, appeal
ing to the white voters and the banner of the
rcfoimatory school iu the other, appealing
f> the colored voters, might be n strong
figure in IHWt- He did not bolieve that lie
cured whether the bill pass’d or not. He
would accomplish his end in either

parison of hf> bill with the labors of John
Howard, and run ns a suggestive parallel
I’Ctvv’sni them, ending in the crazi e s* of
Howard and the commission by Lis own
son of a crime which sent him
to the prison. He alluded to the readiness
of the doctor to accept ail the proposed
amendments to his bill, and his finally
bringing in a substitute as a reason why it
should not now be passed, but should be re
ported upon by a committee, and presented
in proper shajie. The committee reported
progress, and the house adjourned.

THK SPEECHES OF THE DAY.
The lirst address at the morning session
was delivered by State Chemist Philip E.
Cbazal on the subject generally of tho
official inspection of fertilizers—the princi
pies which underlie it and the practical difli
culti-'i which stand in the wav of a recog
nition of its value by the fanner
Tho second address was delivered by Col.
\. P Butler, State Commissioner of Agri
culture, who prefaced his remarks l>y con
gratulating the grange upon the success of
’’this great, meeting." He said that it hud
probnlily surpassed in numbers and in work
of practical value to planters any similar
gathering that has ever lioon held in
South Carolina. He considered the pres
ent success of the encampment the
most convincing proof of its perinauence as
an institution. Col. Butler’s address was de
voted to tho discussion of the liars to tho
progress of the farmer. He denied that the
farmers of the State are (icing impoverished
by uiiVthmgemanating from the executive,
Legislative or judicial branches of the
State Government, and that if there wore
anything that it could lx- pr<miptly re
moved. Humming up. Col. Butler sugges
ted as remedies for the present difficulties
the diversity of crops, the practice of rigid
economy, the improvement of the tenant
system, more indejieiidence of factors and
merchants, intelligent use of commercial
fertilizers, improved methods of agriculture,
and the use of improved implements.
The next address was that of the Hon. D.
I*. Duncan, who regretted the absence of
Col. Lipscomb, who was, as he said, the
originator of mid tiriine mover in the onto r
prise. Preshieiif Duncan’s speech was and •
voted princiisilly to a discussion of tho best
methods of ixlucating farmers and farmers
children. It was n carefully )>i'e|m-,s 1 esvi v,
of which it would be impossililc to give in
a paragraph or two an intelligent idea.

FLORIDA’S RAILROAD COMMISSION
Short Sketches of Judge McWhorter
and Mr. Hines.
The News published yesterday a sketch
of Judge Vann, of the Florida Railroad
Commission. Following are brief sketches
of the two other nu mbers of the commis
sion: Judge George G. McWhorter was born
at Coosawda, Autauga county, Ala., on
Feb. 27, 183d. lie was educated at the Uni
versity of Alabama and the University of
Georgia, and. having lieen admitted to the
practice of law, removed to Florida in 1857,
stttling in Milton, Santa Rosa county, which
has : inc been his home. He soon estab
lished a reputation as a learned counsellor
and an eloquent advocate, aml secured a )k>-
sition in the front rank of his profession in
his adopted State. Of tine presence, with
happy readiness of sjieech. with great fertility
of resources in iiis quick perception and
knowledge of law and human nature, he had
strength before a jury that was almost ir
resistible. In the management of-intricate
causes in civil practice his power of conceu
(ratl analytical thought enable him to
cut directly through irrelevant matter to
the heart of the suhj>ct. He is a leaned
lawyer, one familiar with the law ns
a science, and well versed with the com
mon and statute law of the land. His lit
erarv tastes and domestic habits inclined
to private rather than public life, while his
ability fitted him for any official position.
Judge McWhorter was Speaker of the
Florida Assembly in the legislative session
of 1877; was u fresidential elector on the
Democratic ticket in 1884, and was ap
pointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court
of Florida in January, 1885. The ability,
dignity and impartiality with which he pre
sided over this important tribunal justified
the high opinion of him expressed by all
who know him.
Hon. William Hines lives near Webster,
Humtar county. He is a farmer and fruit
grower and is between 45 and 50 years old.
Ho was a member of the Legislature of 18-85,
and proved a useful and influential member
of that body. Although anew member he
made quite a reputation. Ho came from
Louisinna and was engaged in the com
mission business in New Orleans before
moving to Florida. Physically he is a
strong, healthy gentleman of commanding
presence and mentally is broad ami libera!
in his views.
Chattanooga s Census.
Chattanooga, Tenn., Aug. 4.—-A care
ful and reliable census of the population of

This is an increase of 34 per cent, in the

RAISINS IN THE PUDDING.
Charleston Finds Birmingham a Very
Charleston, S. C., Aug. 4.—The Bir
mingham pudding; promised at one time
during the game to-day to be a very indiges
tible dish to Charh'-.ton. Hunglor and Hines
were put up by the locals, and Webber and
Snyder by the visitors. In the third inning
Hines had his hand split open by a foul bai!
tip, and v.as disabled, whereupon Childs
was put in to catch. Smith, who had been
umpiring very unsatisfactorily,was sent into
right field, and Grady, with his broken col
lar bone. was put up to umpire. Tho acci
dent to limes, which will disabio him for
several weeks, leaves Charleston with but
one catcher. For seven innings the game
was splendidly played, ami belonged to any
body. Both pitchers (lid excellent work,
as (lid the outfields, and the hits
were kept down. In the eighth
inning, however, the game developed into a
comedy of errors. A wild throw of Man
ning's from second to first, when ho had an
excellent chance to make a double play,
scored two runs for Charleston, and after
that the visitors lost their heads and the
locals added five runs to their score. Sny
der, the Birmingham catcher, won the ad
miration of everybody by has splendid work
is:hind the bat. Following is the score:

A GREAT GAME OF BALL.
New Orleans Beats Memphis in a Hard-
New Orleans, Aug. 4. —The umpire
question is still troubling this city. Because
New Orleans, with Mannion’s umpiring
fresh in memory, refused to allow Memphis
to alternate in selecting umpires, Andrews
would not allow his men to play. After
the irate crowd of 3,(KM jeered Wally for a
quarter of an hour the visitors took
the field. Canipau umpired, and gave
Memphis the lx-st of everything. The game
was magnificent, and lsith batteries did
great tv. rk, and received fine supjsirt. There
was little hitting done, but three actual
hits being made off Ewing and seven off
Smith. Stealing second wus difficult, and
runners had to hug the bastes.
Vaughn made a double play olf a foul tip.
Powell made a run in the first on a base on
balls, a steal and Cartwright’s single. In
the fourth Fuller’s two-bagger and Klus
tnan’s single yielded another. These
were all the runs made in the
game. Memphis rame near tying
the score in the sixth. Smith reached first
on Cartwright’s error, and Andrews hit
what looked like a home run to right field,
but I’owell jumped into the air after a hard
run anti pulled the ball down with one hand.
The other phenomenal play of the game
was a one-handed catch by MoKoough at
short on which he made a double play by a
lightning throw to first. The following is
