2 MILLUDGEVILLK ASYLI’M. ME. KENAN DEMANDS THAT IT BE FULLY INVESTIGATED. 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 condition. 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 and management. 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 tem. 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. SIMMONS' OPPOSITION, 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 cveut. 11” would not ullow tho bill to go bock to a committee for it* report U|sn it, lioeauo lie wanted it to bo “my bill.'' lie vindicated the doctor’s com 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. STATE CAPITAL CRAYONS. The Naval Stores Bill Introduced-Bar Association Proceedings. Atlanta, Aug. 4.— The naval stores bill was introduced in the Senate to-day by Mr. Brantley, the same as sent to the News except section 5, which is stricken out, and to go into effect in December instead of January. Mr. Brantley thinks the bill will he generally satisfactory to all parties. The Judiciary (tommitteeof the Senate this afternoon decided on an adverse report on the Brody lull by a vote of 5 to 4. A large delegation is in the city to-night of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers mid Fireman, in opposition to the bill to re quire engineers to take out a license ami the bill in regard to color blindness applying to engineers and firemen. The former Vail will Is- withdrawn to-morrow, and the prospect of the passage of the color blindness bill is considered extremely poor. THE HAH ASSOCIATION. The Bar Association adjourned this after noon. Judge Erwin read the report of the Committee on Jurisprudence and Law Re form The committee recommended the enactment of the two statutes proposed by the American Bur Association, one to pre vent fraudulent divorces and one relating to acknowledgments of instruments affecting real estate. The oommitt -e endorsed Judge Clurkc’s paper on the Apis-Bate Courts, and an act to tie drafted therefrom, They also recommended a law to make deeds, inert gages and liens of all kinds operative against third parties from the t ime they are filed in the Clerk's office. On the subject of -'Punishment <>f Fraud,” and reaching the projs-rty of a debtor concealed from creditors. The com mittee recommended two acts. One “to pro vide for the more complete examination of witnesses" and one “to provide for supple mentary proceedings against judgment debtors and others. " R. H. Lanier, of Macon, read an able pa per oil “Usury Laws a-s Affecting Bocurities lor Debt.” PUBLIC SENTIMENT. He showed how public sentiment on the subject of usury had piogrtwsod from the time when the taking of any sum of money whatever for the use of money until the present time. Usury, as now defined, is the collection of more than the legal rate of in terest. He attacked vigorously the princi ple of the law (cat would work Hie forfeiture ol the whole debt. The remission of excessive interest he held to be sufficient. He attacked the decision in the case of Broach vs. Kelly, where it was held that a mortgage could not bo foreclosed, because it was u usurious contract. He held that m cases where a mortgage was soeurity for debt if usurious rates were charged and the debtor sought to sot aside the contract on that ground, he should bo required nt least to bring to Court the money for which the mortgage was secu rity, which was the property of the mort gage, before he asked that the contract 1* declared void. DISCUSSED AT LENGTH. This point ho discussed at some length, and maintained that in this case there was tho same equity for the creditors that there was in the Byrd ease, which had been pre viously decided by tho court in favor of the creditors. E. \V. Palmer read a paper on “Restric tions of Evidence.” Judge Hammond n the report of the Committee on D-gol Proceedings. F. G. dußignon. P. L. Myiiatt and r. W. Mel driin were appointed us delegates to tho American Bar Association. The visiting members were tendered a complimentary breakfast at the Kimball House this morn ing by Hoko Smith. THE PENITENTIARY COMMITTEE. The Penitentiary Investigating Commit tee met this afternoon. Capt. W D. Grunt, in responding to the resolution of the com mittee, produced all the original papers per taining to tlu- sale of his interest in the Usee and tho indemnifying bond. Messrs. Towers and Lowe gave the opinion that un der the bill (lending four wardens would ho required, e.t an estimate,! exsst to the Htate of $5.0(X1 annually. The committee expect to finish Saturday. The Governor issue- 1 un order to -lay dis charging Simon and Minervu Block, in tho iienitentiary from Decatur county for burglary, anew trial having been granted and they were allowed to pit ad guilty to Inrceuv from tho house and sentenced to two months and ten days. A stranger named W. D. Ferguson tried to board n construction train at Braswell, on the East Tennessee, Virginia and Geor gia railroad, to-day, when he fell under the curs, the wheels crushing both legs so liadlv that they were amputated by Dr. E. if. Adair, of Kockmart, the man dying under tho knlfo. SUNSHINE AT GR T FKIN. Some of the Damage Done by the Downpour and Fiood. Griffin, Aug. 4.— After an almost un ceasing ruin of six days i lie sun enme forth Wednesday morning and ventured to show himself through the rifts in the clouds with some small promise of fair weather. The rains of tho past week have been luiprepe deutod in the history of this section, mid considerable damage to crops and properly is rc|>ortod on all sides. Cellars have over flow'd, mill dams have been washed away, chimneys have Is--n undermined and cotton mid corn has been blown down mid washed away.

The extent of the damage is not yet known, nor can it lie estimated. A few days of fair weather will bring things out wonderfully, and when the farmers get over the hint's mused by the long wet sis-ll they nmv find that crops are not so badly injured as they at first supposed STRUCK BY LIGHTNING.

THE SPARTANBURG ENCAMPMENT. The Farmers are Having an Enjoyable Time. The second duy of the Farmers' Encamp ment at Spartanburg, S.

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.

As was cx|noted, and as was quite natural, Spartanburg is more fully represented in the way of a display than any other city in this or the other States interested. 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 Chatlauooga shows 30,003 inhabitants.

RAISINS IN THE PUDDING. Charleston Finds Birmingham a Very Palatable Dish. 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.

New Orleans Beats Memphis in a Hard- Fought Battle. 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 the score: New Orleans. 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 o—2 Memphis 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 o—o Batteries Smith and Crotty, Ewing and Vaughn. Base hits -New Orleans 8, Memphis 6.
