after midnight your correspondent
met Col. Harry Skinner, justas the
tbe latter, in company with Mr.
Marion Batlor and Majfor W A
Guthrie, came out of the Populits
caucus. Col. Skinner gave me the
notes of his speech there whic'i he
said had preveted the chinge of the
charter ot Wilmington,
Yet this bill came up in.the House
today and the Populists in many
cases voted for it. Why the change ?
Mr. French laughed and raid it was
cot 'he first time that Skinner had
been run over, Capt, Kitchin said
today that in the caucus when a vote
was taken on tbe matter there wa
no real count; that jast as tbe vote
was taken there was a motion to ad
jonrn and the crowd swept out. Now
this is a queer proceeding.
Your correppondent this afternoon
interviewed Harry Skinner, who
gave out the news last night that
there was a defeat in the caucus of
the Wilmington charter. Col. Skin
ner said :
"L'he only thing in which I was
deceived by tbe caucus was this
charter matter. I know that a ma
jority ot the Populists in tat cau
cus were opposed to a change of the
charter, and I am surprised and can
not understand the influences which
caused the passage of the bill, un
less it may be that French and Rus
sell hive convinced the Populists
that the real financial control of tbe
city remains in Democratic hands-
French called on me 'oday and said
he was satisfied my opposition to the
charter bill was entirely upon the
wrong oasia; that I did noc under
stand the bill, which was conserva
tive and met the approval of at
least one wing of the Democratic
party in Wilmington ; that if I
would get the bill and muke it a
thought my opposition would end ;
that he igreed with me generally,
that it would be unwise politically
to turn any cities over to incompe
tent management, but that his bill
has been carefully prepared with an
eye single to the material interests
of Wilmington, and that no . harm
would result from its passage. Sena

Nearly everybody in South Caro

this is an age of reform perhaps a
new way will be acceptable. The
Christian Quiver says: "We. have
haJ - many directions for cooking
rice in 'the proper way. The latest
comes from Syria,where they wash it
in four, five or six waters, or until
the last water is clear. A table-
spoonful of butter is then heated in
a vessel until it bubbles, and the
rice in added and mixed. Then
salted water i3 added 'generously,'
and the rice is cooked withou
stirring until it is tender and 'the
water is all absorbed." Charleston
