After the rendition of the "Dedication
Hymn," President Collier .advanced to
the front and gave a ahort sketch of the
orgaaixatinn of the Piedmont Exposition;
how 104 days ago. the enterprise was un
known tven In Atlanta, how it had or
iginated among a few gentlemen who had
aaembled in the ofllce of IhoAtlanta Con
$t it utioh, how it had grown beyond the
limits that its projectors had set for it,
until now, the moment of its opening, it
stood without a rival in everything that
it tHairaed, an extosltion of the wealth,
t inducts, resources, and industry of the
'iedmont region. , . ; ,
Governor Gordon wal grectr a with en
thusiastic cheers, and, aa ne advanced to
tho front, and aavhia tall, martial form
wai seen by the groat crowd, tho cheer
ing was renewed until it became an ova
lion. With a voice that reached every
man in tha audience. Governor Gordon
delivered speech, that was interrupted

plause. . - .-1 .

don's epeech, the chorus end band gave,
with excellent effect, another anthem,
which waa highly appreciated and en
joyed ly, b' largo crowd. President
Collier then Introduced Hon. Samuel J.
Randall, of Pennsylvania. Sir. Randall,
or as President Collier alluded to him,
the "friend of the South," was greeted
with cheer after cheer. Aa ho .topped
forward, the cnecrg were repeated, again
and again, and for some moments the
speaker stood silently before the thou
sands,, while the applause was great and
enthusiastic. The oration lasted thiity
minutes, and , w,aa liateued to with the
greatest respect. . : . - i '
Something then took place that waa
uot don upon the programme, that the
audience was responsible for. Alter Sir,
Randall had concludod, the audience be-'
gan to call loudly and enthusiastically for
'Grady," "Grady," meaning Henry WV
Graiy, the vice-president of 'ike ExpoaU
tion. The call was too pronounced and
emphatic to be overlooked and "resisted,
and Mr. Grady, after solicitation by baa
follow; directors, advanced to the front.
As his familiar figure came before tha
view ef -ike audksrJoe,- the applause grevr
deafening once' more, whereupon Sir,
Grady mode tt brief address: - v
' Mr. Itandall touched an electric button,
likh started the machinery, the artil
lery fired a salute and the Exposition was
"'(fficfally opened. . - - "": v .. 1 1
; After tea Mr. and Mrs, Randall, Sir.
and - Sirs. Gcrker and Sir. Grata. -wera

.lublje reception hod been arranged for.
A large number of Atlanta's moBt promi
nent citizens caiied duriug tho evening to
pay their respects . to tho distinguished
visitors.? Slouy of AtlanCn's moat beau-:
tiful and accomplished ladies were there,
and the scene was indeed a brilliant one.
Frank -" Gordon . made the v pre
teutation '. in. an exceedingly hap
py manner. The secial feature
of the reception was' the serenade of the
young Democrats. At half ; past seven
o'clock, probably 500 young men gath
ered at tho custom house. Tha famous
artillery band had been secured for the
occasion, and headed by this band, a
line was formed and marched to the ar
tesian wclL' Here there was a halt, to
tiring about more perfect organisation.
Several of the prominent members of the
i,igue marched with the band carrying
wine of the new porches which have befia
purchased for the Cleveland demonstra-.
tion. After a ahort halt the . march out
Pcochtree toward the mansion was re--umeL
. the greatest enthusiasm ! pre
vailed, and at every step new recruits
were added to the ranks until there were
fully a thous md in line. Reaching the
mansion the prooes-ion, or as much of it
as could do, so, filed into,' tho spacious
grounds until,' every ao,uare foot of
ground was - taken up. The band
played a selection, after .which Sir.
Itandall, stepped from the .hall to tho

Waltcrboro, Coljcton county, 8. C, is
intensely agitated over a recent aeries of
cowbidings and threatened duel, all
growing out of the fascinating and pop
ular game of poker. All the parties con
cerned belong to the first families of .the
place. It appears that the eldest son of
Alaj. Edwards, the principal' lawyer of
the town, has been leading a gay life
since he marrie 1 the beautiful daughter
of the lute Col. Jamea II. Ition, who, it
will be remembered, was alleged to be a
son of the dauphin of France. Young
Edwards' frequent and . protracted ab
sence from home at nijjht aroused his
wife's ire, and on a recent night, guided
by a young lad named Izlar, she uncere
moniously entered the room in which liir
husband and several of his male friends
were engaged in a game of draw -poker.
Among those present, was a Sir. Bellin
ger, who bears the reputation of being a
"bad man" in a fight. Sirs. Edwards
seems to have thought him in some way
responsible for her husband's habits, and
drawing a cowhide from beneath her
shawl, he set upon him and boat him un
mercifully before she could be secured.
Her acx aaved her from retaliation ou the
part of Bellinger, who, however, ex
pressed his intention of holding her hus
band responsible, and forthwith ' drew a
(liitol, kill btra. Sirs. Edwards' nerve
orsook her, and sinking upon her knees
before Bellinger, she begged forgiveness
for the cowniding, and cntreited
him to spare her Lusband'a life, t Be lin
ger then left the room, threatening to
kill any one who should divulge the oc
currence. Next day, when the story got
out, Bellinger sought Edwards and wore
out a cowhide upon ' Ida person. It is
further stated .that Bellinger compelled
Edwards, at the point of a pistol,- to : go
to the house of young Ldar to cowhide
him for ahowing Sirs. Edwards the poker
room, but the appearance of the toy's
father prevented it being done. , M my of
the best citizens of Walterboro hnvc taken
eppoaite aides ia the matter, and were go
lag about armed to tho teeth.
