PALMETTO STATE ELECTION. CHARLESTON SAVES THE PACE OF 11eIt OLD ENEMY, TILLMAN. Hr l* Working for the Removal of i lie Naval Station From Tort Roy. 01. Therefore the City He Tried Formally to Throttle Save* Him n Hunt Throw-Down—Some Surprise* nf the linllot — Itesmlt Yet In Doubt. Columbia. S. C., Aug. 30.—With her big counties and magnificent distances, it is oa o ' flow work getting election re runs in South Carolina, but this year the usual troubles have been aggravated by Ponderous tickets, and in some instances the managers were working on the count I r twelve hours. The state ticket, with thirty candidates, was bad enough, but when in addition the managers had to handle county tickets having from 70 to SO names, the task was exhausting. To-morrow, probably, all the boxes will be reported and the official count may be made. There is some trouble in Charles ton about the loss of one important box, t r rather of the poll list, and it is being held up for investigation. There is a poss ibility that this box may change the re sult in the sheriff's fight about which there is much bad blood. Martin now has the advantage over Jervey. MoSwofiiy Lend* Hoyt. Mi Sweeny, on the returns from about <OO votes, and with but four or five 11msand more to hear from, leads Col. Hoyt, the prohibition Candidate, by near ly 3,000. One of the surprises is the poor riu mpde by Frank B. Gary, who was u •nittedly the choice of Senator Tillman for governor, his vote barely one-third of II \ t's. He will take third place, with l iMerson of Barnwell fourth, Whitman bringing up the rear of this, his fourth r.i e for Governor, with less than 500 votes to his credit. State Treasurer Timmerman and J. H. Jennings, a one-armed Confederate, are running a neck-and-neck race. Jennings got majorities in most of the counties, but Charleston gave Timmerman a lead of 3.* The result will probably not be k >wn till the official count. Col. “Jim” Tillman, a nephew of the S. t .itor. doubles the next highest man for lieutenant governor. There were live running and the vote was very much split up. Tillman and Col. John T. Sloan cf Columbia will run over, with the chances in favor of Tillman. He became noted in the Spanish War for encouraging hi- men to j>elition for muster out. W. D. Evans and J. L. Wharton Will run over for Railroad Commissioner. Defeat of NYllson. Joseph Johnson defeats Stanyarne Wil son for re-election to Congress by more than 2,000. Wilson has served two terms In Congress, and each time Johnson has run against him. Wilson, in the days when factional strife was bitter was in the State Senate. He was Gov. Tillman's right-hand man; a leader who conceded nothing to an opponent. He led the major ities that for so many sessions of the leg islature hod everything their own way. Johnson was on the other side. He got few votes the first time he ran for Con gress. hut has gained them each time till success is won. In the Sixth district anew man also has a chance. Lieut. Gov. Scarborough, a young lawyer, is a few votes ahead of Congressman James Norton. As there is i third man in the field. J. E. Elliott, who has drawn more than 3.000 votes, none can hr e a majority, and so the two highest \vi,l contest again next Tuesday week. ■ itor Tillman will have his majority— and so will go back to the Senate, but he has been badly scratched. He will run i ';bly 26,000 behind the ticket. He was mii ' - j d both in the towns and cities. Hi- ' s would have been greater had he i In on particular good terms with Charleston just at present. He is assist i..g that city In the tight for the naval sta tion and in other local matters of interest Hi- vote there was quite large, while in Columbia it was not 40 per cent. PROTESTS AND CONTESTS. I hnrleston Candidates Not Satisfied? Witli Re*ult*. hnrleston, S. C., Aug. 30.—When the C.' inty Democratic Executive Committee met here to-day to tabulate the returns of the recent primary, it was flooded with ! rotests and contests. Mr. James H. Moore, who wag defeated for magistrate, will contest all votes cast for candidates indorsed by the advisory board of the Charleston Democracy on the grounds that they were candidates of a faction back of n faction and under the rules of the party nre not entitled to participate in a Demo cratic primary. Mr. Jarvey will protest against the votes in the box, from Club 2, Ward 4, being counted, #n<] he will ask for an official <ount of all the ballots cast. The whole poll list of the hox named was not turned in to the Executive Committee, and cannot !"■ found. The representative of Capt. Martin stated that he reserved his right to make a protest till liter, and so the matter went. The committee finally ap pointed a sub-committee to tabulate the returns officially and then agreed to hear all the protests on Sept. 3. WILL GO TO W EST VIRGINIA. Mr. Ilrjnn May Make a Few Speeches in That State. Deer Park. Md., Aug. 30.—Hon. John T. McGraw has received a telegram from Mr. Hrynn saying he would come to West Viiginia next Tuesday, and spend a few days a McGraw’s place at Deer Park. While in the state he might make a few appointments for political meetings, not to exceed two speeches a day. He will proceei direct from Chicago to Deer Park, and will return to Chicago Friday c veiling. WILL DECLARE HIMSELF. Senator Wellington to Follow Ilryan nt Cumberland. Cumberland, Md..

B,r Negro'* < iir*injt anti Thrent* Cost Him Hi* Lift*. Tifton, Ga., Aug. 30. Dick Grooms, a i colored porter on Plant System passen ger train, No. S9. west bound, was shot ■hid instantly killed at 2 o’clock this morning by Baggageman A. C. Goldwire. ( rooms was a coal-black giant, weigh ing o\er .00 pounds, and Is sa'd to have : been v* ry impudent. He and Goldwire had i a ois Pute on leaving Albany the previous day, and he cursed Goldwire, who warn ed him not to do so again, as he would get hurt. On the arrival of the train at Tifton this morning, Goldwire called Crooms to help him off wi h a barrel of fish. Grooms was evidently angry already, and replied that if he wanted the fish taken off to take them off himself. Crooms cursed Goldwire, at the same time putting his hand to his hip pocket. Quick „s a flash. Gold wire’s pistol came to the front, and nve shots rang out as fast as he could pull the trigger. Every shot took effect, and Crooms staggered to a seat in the colored car, and was dead before any one could reach him. His pistol, a bull dog, was found in his pocket, from which he had not had time to draw It. Under instructions from headquarters, the. body was carried on to Albany, Gold wire having charge of it in the baggage car - The conductor offered to relieve him until Albany was reached, but Goldwire declined, saying he would remain at his post. No arrests have been made, as it appears that Goldwire was clearly justi fiable. Jhe Grooms family bear a reputation as bad negroes in this section; one of them, John Crooms, having killed Bailiff Jim Hamlin about ten years ago and wounded Capt. \V. T. Hargrett. who was in the party trying to arrest him. Jack Edenfleld, who was shot through the head by Tom Brogden, at Alapha, on the night of Aug. IS, died Monday. At a committal trial yesterday Brogden was released, the evidenve being that he acted in self-defense. John Clements, who was shot by John Ellis, near Kissimmee, on Aug. 17, is said to be getting well. SAILORS AVERE PAID OFF. Made Charge* of Cruelty AgHiiiHt Their Captain. Norfolk, Va., Aug. 30.—Acting British Consul R. F. Baldwin to-day investigat ed charges of cruelty against Capt. A. Hammond of the British government’s chartered collier Channing, preferred by sixteen members of the ship’s crew, who desired their discharge. The Channing is now nt Lambert’s Point loading for the British government upward of 4,C00 tons of coal for South Africa. John O’Rourke, the ship’s quartermas ter, claimed that Capt. Hammond threw’ him overboard while the Channing was in South American waters recently, and then prevented him from reporting the matter to the South American authori ties. William Yapp, a coal passer, claim ed that he was compelled to work while suffering with a blood-poisoned leg. Thomas Ford, another coal passer, claim ed that he was compelled to work while suffering with a very sore hand. None of the churges of cruelty against Capt. Hammond were sustained. Attor ney P. J. Morris, representing the sixteen men who desired their discharge from the Channing, throaiened to libel the ves sel if Cap*. Hammond would not come to terms, and the sixteen men were paid off and discharged. WAGES MAY BE REDUCED. Reductions Contemplated for Cotton Mill Operative*. Boston, Aug. 30.—A statement was sent out from Clinton to-day that a general wage reduction in New England cotton mills is contemplated. The report could not be verified here. A reduction in wages is under consider ation in Fall River, but as yet no decision has been positively announced, though treasurers representing 1,000.000 spindles have agreed to a reduction plan? Should wages he reduced in that city it is thought many manufacturers elsewhere may take up the wage question, but as far as can be learned here no action has yet been decided upon. Considerable secrecy is maintained at Fall River concerning the proposed re duction because of feared objections from some stockholders opposed to a reduc tion at this time, and f r fear of the effect on trade. Opponents of the plan fear that at the time when there is no demand for goods, a redui ton cannot solve the market problem w’hieh con fronts mill men to-day. Curtailment of product* n is the only means of relieving the market, thur creating a demand. TO CONTINUE THE OLD PLAN. Pythian* Decide to Keep I'p tlie Ro tation of Officer*. Detroit. Mich.. Aug. 30.—The Supreme Lodge Knights of Pythias to-day settled the question of whether rotation in office should be continued or the supreme offi cers re-elected for u second term. The lest was the vote on election of Supreme Chancellor. There were two candidates, Thomas G. Sample of Pennsylvania, the present supreme chancellor, and Ogden 11. Fethers of Janesville, Wls. Supreme Vice Chancellor. There were seventeen seconding speeches made for Fethers; the Sample contingent were content to rest with the nominating address. The first ballot resulted in the election of Fethers. 88 to 59. Contrary to the usual custom, the election was not made unanimous, no motion being madt; to that effect. San Francisco was selected for the next biennial gathering by acclamation. ENDEAVORERS Ol T OF FI NDS. Arrived From Europe Without Even ii Change off Linen. New York. Aug. 30.—Many of the 420 Christian Endeavorers who reached this port from Europe yesterday on the North German Lloyd steamer Aller ore unable to proceed to their homes by reason of lack of funds. Neither had any of the 420 any baggage when they arrived, lack ing even a change of linen. They tell harrowing stories of their ex periences abroid. They report the conti nent of Europe to be dotted with ill-used Christian Endeavor tourists. PKKETING IN ILLEGAL. Btrlker* Enjoined From* Interfering With Non-l nlon Men. London.

IMPORTANT ADDRESS AT B AR ASSO CIATION MEETING. Hon. George R. Peek of Chicago Say* the C’onatitution off the United State* Ha* the Marching Quality. History of Sonic of the Most Im portant Step* In It* Progress. Court Deeiniou* That Nece**ifated Amend m cut*. Saratoga, N. Y., Aug. 3(V. —At to-day’s session of the twenty-third annual meet ing of the American Bar Association, the annual address was delivered by George R. Peck of Chicago, 111., who spoke on “The March of the Constitution.” lie said in part: I The ftderal constitution was a great ! creative work, anew departure. | In a general way, It may be said that i a constitution is the system or body of | fundamental principles, written or un written. under which a nation, state or body politic is formed or governed. Well did Tennyson describe the process by which the Biitish constitution was evolved, when he w’rote; “A land of old and just renown Where freedom broadens 6lcwly down From precedent to precedent.” But the British constitution, could not suffice when the American people pro posed to embark upon a career of sepa rate nationality. Never did men face a graver responsi bility than did those who undertook to bring order out of the chaos which then enveloped them. The lefty enumeration of their purposes in the preamble to the Constitution, was ireclf a solemn judgment upon the arti cles of confederation, which, indeed, all men knew were altogether inadequate for holding the fruits of their struggle for independence. What order of rmn they were who framed our Constitution is shown in the light of a historical contrast which is full of dramatic interest. France was in trouble—a trouble more serious than any which ever before confronted an existing order of things. On the very day that George Washing ton was elected President of the conven tion. the great assembly of the notables adjourned. They had sat tw’o months and utterly failed to do anything which could save Fiance. Then came another meet ing of the notables and of the states gen eral, the national assembly, the constit uent assembly, and that fruitless and ut terly abortive effort to make a constitu tion which should save the king’s crown and the people’s rights. This attempt at constitution-making failed, for it could not rally to its sup port any faith in its inherent strength. It simply collapsed when put to the pitiless test of those pitiless times. Great hoi*es had been centered in it. hopes of deliver ance. hopes of happiness and hopes of peace; hut Carlyle sums up the result in a single sentence, which he makes the heading for one of his grandly picturesque chapters; “Constitution will not march.” Had the Marching Quality. 'But, gentlemen, the constitution our fathers made had the marching quality in it; and our history records how it has marched in good and evil days, some dmes through perils and difficulties, some timse seeming almost ready to halt, but always moving forward. Franklin urged the members of the con vention to sink their personal objections for the sake of the great Issue at stake. “Thus I consent, sir. to this constitution.” he said, “because I expect no better and liecauee I am not sure that it Is not the best. The opinions 1 have had of Us cr lors I sacrifice to the public good.” It was the result of a large number of compromises. There was little business for the Su preme Court in the eleven years which preceded the appointment of Marshall; only six constitutional cases were decid ed. Thus far the constitution had marched; hut it must be admitted its pathway had not been a smooth one. The people soon learned that the Supreme Court was a body claiming enormous powers—powers that thousands of good men viewed with sincere alarm. When Chisholm vs. the State of Geor gia was brought before them, the country was aflame with excitement. Mingled feelings of astonishment and indignation filled men’s minds at the thought of bring ing a sovereign state into court like an ordinary debtor. “This is a case of uncommon magni tude,” said Justice Wilson. “One of the parties to it is a state; certainly respec table. Claiming to be sovereign. The question to be determined is whether this state, so respectable, and whose claim soars so high, is amenable to the Jurisdic tion of the Supreme Court of the United States? This question, important in It self. will depend on others more impor tant still, and may. perhaps, be ultimate ly resolved into one no less radical than this: ‘Do the people of the United States form a nation?’ “ A Georgia Ca*e. When the court held the state of Geor gia to be amenable to a private citizen, an overwhelming demand went up for an amendment to the constitution, and so the eleventh amendment was straightway adopted. When Marshall took his seat it was plain that he would have many uncomfortable experiences and much rancorous criti cism. He believed in a strong govern ment; and so also did his adversaries. But they believed the strength should be In the separate parts, while he believed it should be in the sum of all the parts— the Nation. He had, indeed, the great conception of John Milton: “not • * * many sovereignties united in one common wealth, but many commonwealths under one united and intrusted sovereignty.” The first case in which Marshall was called upon to go deeply into the theory of our government is Marby v. Madison. The great value of the decision lies in the luminous and convincing discussion of the question: “What is the duty of the Judiciary when a statute not authorized by the constitution is asserted as the basis of a legal right?” “To what purpose nre powers limited,” he asked, “and to w’hat purpose is that limitation committed to writing, if these limits may, at any time, be passed by those intended to bo restrained?” And he answered: “Certainly all those who have frame*] written constitutions contemplate them as forming the fundamental and paramount law of the nation, and. conse quently. the theory of every such govern ment must be that an act of the luro repugnant to the constitution is void.” Mark the word “void* -not doubt ful or questionable, but void. It was in thin great ease that we find the maxim which has come down through our Judicial history, “the government of the United Htates is a government of laws and not of men.” WKhln the last twelve months the Supreme Court of the United giatfM. Mistaking by JuMice Brew* r, again announced it In Railway Company v. Tompkins. Power* a* to IlnnL*. The n**xt gi'-ot forward step of the con stitution %v.i* MeCuliorb v. Maryland, fa mous ii# our Judicial annals, it involved a question absolutely vital in the relation* of tre national government to the government* of the state*. You know the two questions involved pint, Has Congress power o incorpor ate a bank* gacond If It baa. car a atate t.x It?

At the same term the celebrated Dart mouth College case was decided. ***•*• Gibbons vs. Ogden, decided in 1824. is the great source to which all must go who would understand the scope and im port of the commerce clause of the con stitution. Again, the great Chief Justice had to face the pretensions of a sover eign state, and to strike down one of its statutes. The court there upheld the exclusive power of Congress to regulate commerce among the states, wherever it has legis lated upon the subject. The argument in the case dealt largely with the ques tion whether navigation is commerce, but Marshall, answering that question in the affirmative, added in that conclusive way which no other judge ever equaled or approached: “Commerce undoubtedly is traffic, but it is something more; it is In tercourse.” It would almost seem that he was a prophet as w’ell as judge, for in that sentence he unconsciously foretold the railroad, the telegraph, the telephone and all the wonderful appliances by which science compels nature to be the servant and minister of man. • •••••* Roger B. Taney, who succeeded Mar shall, was a man eminently titled for that exalted position. Learned, able, patient, honest, he filled the ideal of a great judge. But, like Marshall, he had a tem perament; like Marshall, he belonged to a school. Strict construction was as dear to him as It was odious to his predecessor. After referring with regret to the Dred Scott case, the speaker said: “Let us be Just.” Judge Taney was sustained by the entire court, save two, McLean and Cur tis. It matters little now who was right arid who was wrong: for the issue wont to a higher court and was settled forever. ••****• Throughout our constitutional history we have carried on the most complex system of government known to man—and to-day ! venture to assert that, notwithstand ing its complexity, it has been so admin istered as to combine more of liberty to the citizen with more of power in the na tion than any other constitutional gov errment. The states, unimpaired in their just powers, carry or> the due operations of local administration unfettered—and the union—which is a union both of people and states—has long since passed the time when any court or any stoteamani may re new Justice Wilson’s inquiry: “I)o ih' people of the United States form a na tion?” Report* Adopted. At the afternoon station the report of the committees were presented. The one on jurisprudence and law reform and on commercial law was adopted. The upon on commercial law says in part: The present “acts of bankruptcy” give the creditor no remedy whatever unless the debtor deliberately seeks to defraud Ids creditors or to prefer one creditor over another, or suffers or pernvts such a pref erence, or commit* an overt act in the "ay of making an assignment for the benefit of his creditors, or admits in writ ing his inability to pay his debts and is willing to be adjudged a bankrupt on that ground. There is nothing in the present law or in the law as emended by the Ray bill that gives a creditor any remedy what ever against a reckless or improvident df btor. The debtor, instead of u*dng his money to pay his debts, may gamble with it. may speculate with it, may use it is wastefully or improvidently as he chooses, and the creditor has no remedy except that when his debt becomes due he may sue upon it and collect it if he can. A man may have a thousand dollars in cash and owe debts of a thousand dollars which he ought to pay with that cash; instead, he may go into a gambling house and bet it on the turn of a wheel, and the creditor has no remedy. He may go into a worse than gambling house on Wall street, or State street, or Chestnut street, and bet it upon the turn of something more uncertain than a wheel, and the reditor has no remedy. He may indulge in wild recklessness in the business ven tures, or wild extravagance in his per sonal outlays, and the creditor has no remedy. It is the object of our proposed amend ments to furnish the creditor with a rem edy under such circumstances. When a man is in debt he has no moral—and we believe he should have no legal—right to use the money or the property with which alone he can pay that debt, in such a wav that the creditor takes all the chances in case of failure, and the debtor reaps all the profit in case of success. We are not at all unmindful of the diffi culties in the way of enforcing such u provision in the statute as we seek to have enacted. It may be that in many cases, perhaps most cases, the creditor would not discover the wrong that was being done him until it is too late to apply the remedy. The stable door might be locked only after the horse was stolen. But the difficulty of enforcing a right is no reason why it should be withheld. The least that the Legislature can do is to put it in the power of the creditor to protect himself and leave it to his dili gence to apply the remedy. Let the Leg islature do its part, and the creditor can not then complain if by any want of dili gence or alertness he fails to do this. FIRE INSUR ANCE.

The work of both men was wonderfully clever and fully bore out all that has been said of them for some years iest. Any one. no matter how big or strong, would have gone down before those last three blows that Corbett landed, as they were full of strength and planted in the proper spot.” Neither man. when he returned to his dtessing room, showed any marks on the face or body. Corbett, of course, was in the best of humor. “Now, hold oil a moment." he said as bis friends surged about, “I want to ask you something. Was it a good fight?” When a chorus of voices answered ”Y r es,“ Jim said: “I am gad of it. and I think I have proved that I am the clever est boxer in the world, and showed that I can punch a bit, didn’t I? Soy, he’s a clever fellow, ain't he? He can pinch too.” Corbett continued: “He can hi. I teli you, but I dropped to something very quickly. He can only hit with one hand at a time. He can’t wallop with both hands. When I saw that, I made up my mind that the hcs< thing for me to do was to go in and mix it up with him. Now I am ready and willing ro meet any heavyweight fighter in the world. Jef fries preferred. I will rest up n bit first, and after that will take on the best of them.” McCoy's face wore a gloomy expression as he sat in his room dressing. When spoken to he said, curtly: “Oh, I don’t want to talk. What’s the use? I was whipped. I thought he was so easy in The first two rounds that I grew careless, and he got home the punch.” The men battled for 60 per cent, of the gross receipts which was to be divided. 75 per cent, to the winner and 25 per cent, to the loser. It is estimated that there was about $40,000 in the house, so that Corbett will receive in the neighborhood of and McCoy about $6,000. The betting Just before the men entered the ring wah 2 to 1 on Corbett, When they entered McCoy refused to shake hands with Corbett. The Fig lit l>> Round*. Round One—Just before the men began. Referee White cautioned the seeonds that if any of them emered the ring, they would be arrested. Corbett started feint ing. with McCoy breaking. McCoy tried with the left, but missed. Corbett feint ed with the left, but stepped back. Mc- Coy tried a right swing, but fell short Corbett tried with Ms left for the head, but McCoy threw It off. Corbett, after a spell, tried another left, but was stopped. Roth feinted cleverly and Cor bett tried another left. McCoy rushed with both hands, but Corbett stepped back, breaking ground Three times. Cor bett tried left swing, but was cleverly blocked, and McCoy made him break ground in trying left for the head. Neither landed a blow during the &pund. The bell found them sparring in the middle of the ring. Round Two—The cleverness displayed by the men was beautiful. As they came to the center in this round McCoy was the aggressor, but both he and Corbett failed to land. McCoy sent two left Jabs to Corbett’s mouth. Jim attempAed a right hook for the head, hut McCoy block ed nicely. McCoy rushed, but Jim side stepped. McCoy landed a left on ihe ear. and at close quarters put his left to <he body and Jim put his right to the ear and face. They clinched and In the breakaway Corbett missed twice. Cor bett sent his left to the neck and crossed his right to the mouth. the boll found them sparring in the rif.g. Round Three—Roth feinted for a few seconds and then Corbett sent his left for the body, but was blocked. McCoy tried a left swing for the body, but Corbett •blocked. Corbett rushed in, but McCoy clinched safely and ihe referee separated them. Jim tried a right for the jaw but McCoy ducked. They come together In an other clinch, McCoy’® elbow going to Cor bett’s che-t, and McCoy was cautioned by the referee. McCoy was now on the defen sive, and blocked a left uppercut. McCoy led left to the face and Jim countered. Roth left to the face and Jim countered. Roth landed left swings on the mouth. Corbett dropped his science for a moment and commenced walloping without landing, as the Kid’s blocking was perfect. Round Four. Both came up quickly at the sound of th** bell. Corbett being the ag gressor. McCoy broke ground frequent ly, going backwards. Ci rbett landed : left on the face, but the Kid broke away when Jim tried left and right swings. Jim k>pt following, trying left swings, and they came to a clinch twice. Corbett rushed, and the Kid landed left on the ear. Corbett rushed again, driving the Kid across the ring, swinging his right and uppercutting with his left. McCoy kept ducking, but Corbett got to him with both hands. Corbett Jabbed two lefts in the face, and kept after hi-- man, bat tering down McCoy’s and feose. McCoy clinched frequently and both showed signs of weariness wh<n they went to thfir corners.
