SOUTH CAROLINA IMDEPENDEMTS.
A Democratic Ticket to Be Put Ojt Against
the Tillmamtes and Butler Candidates
to Be Run in Every County.
CoLriiBiA, S. C. At a meeting of
General Butler's friends, held in this
city, it was determined to run an inde
pendent Democratic ticket against the
regular Democracy which is known an
the Tillmanites. Legislative tickets fa
vorable to Butler will be nominated in
every county, and it is probable that a
convention will In? held to nominute a
full State ticket from Governor down.
This action is arousing much bitter
ness, and the Democratic executive
committee, of which Senator Irby is
chairman, has been called to meet on
Tuesday next to consider the political
situation. When the Independent con

A WINSTON TRAGEDY.
A Negro Kills a White Man. The Homicide
Winston, N. C Edward C. Brynn,
one of the mnuagers of Grillith At Bo
hannou's tobacco factory, met his death
The verdict of the coronor's jury
Saturday was that the deceased came to
his death by a gun shot, fired by the
hr.nd of Adam Morris, in defense of his
person and home. Morris was given
his gun and set free. The gist of tho
evidence by all witnesses was that
Bryan had been drinking and was rather
"wild." He went to old man Morris'
house and demanded admittance, which
was repeatedly refused. The demands
were made in a very insolent and abu
sive manner. He declared that he
would burst open the door and kill
Morris with a yard paling which he cur
ried in his hand. Bryan did break
open the door, rushed into the room and
received the fatal shot.

A Norfolk Vs., man recently planted
500 black walnut trees on twenty-two
acres of land which were not capable of
producing any crops. In planting the
trees he made this calculation: The
field cost S8.00, interest and taxes
8280; total $360. In thirteen years the
treea begin to bear nuft.in twenty yeais
the treea ought to War 8200 worth of
nuts, while at the end of fifty years,for
which time the interest and taxes are
estimated, the trees Ehould be large
enough to cut 500 feet of lumber each,
or 250,000 feet, -which, at $150 per
1000, would amount to $37,500. Here
is something for lumbermen and sterile
land owners to think about.
NORTH CAROLINA REPUBLICANS.
They Hold a State Convention and Nominate
Raleioh, N. C. The Republican
State convention met herewith ninety
three of the ninety-six counties repre
sented. On the lstday of August the
Populh t State convention met her and
nominated W. H. Worth Ur State
treasurer, W. T. Faircloth for chief
justice of the supreme court and G.
Connor, D. M. Furches, and Walter
Clark for associate justices. The con
test was over the nomination of an en
tire ticket for the purpose of fusion of
the Republican and Populist patties
during this campaign. By a vote of
154 to 30 the convention Dominated
this ticket. The intention is to fuse on
every office and only have one candi
date for each office to be voted for.
The resolution on t-ilver is as follows:
"We favor a financial policy not in
favorof mono metallism, cither of g l I
or silver, as the basis of a financial sys
tem, but international bimetallism to
be secured by ttreuuous efforts of the
national power to be directed against
such foreign nations as adhere to the
single gold standard. Under existing
conditions, with international agree
ment, we favor the free coinage of the
entire product of American mines at
the ratio of 16 to 1. Now, and in th ;
future, all dollars eheuld be of eqwd
purchasing power, to the end that a
suitable currency, abundant for oil
wants, shall secure to all the people the
full results of their labor."
A. E. Holton was elected chairman
of the State committee.

Worcester, Mass., Spy.
Many Northwestern farmers have
become thoroughly tired of enduring
the trials to which their imceitiin cli
mate subjects them, and are turning
their eyes toward the South as the lmd
of promise. A large number of Neva
da stock farmers and dairymen are pre
paring to move to North Carolina an I
purchase farm3 in localities su.te.l to
their avocations. Within a few years
the immigration of farnierp, dairymen,
poultry-raisers, orchard, smull fruit
and vegetable cultivators from the
Northwest and from our New England
States will assume considerable pro
portions, and Tiedmont and Western
North Carolina will receive more of
them than all other sections of tho
South combined, for the people of that
State are more like those of the North
than any other, and their laws and cus
toms are more like those to which
Northern people are wonted. There is
less gush and sentiment and more com
mon sense to the square yard in North
Carolina than in any State of "Dixie
land." It is a better State for New
England men to go to who are tired
of life in their old home and long to
get amid new surroundings than any
of the newer States of the West, Wash
ington only excepted, and for men of
energy, brains and money enough to
ttart w ith it offers great opportunties.
4 Murder in the Breckinridge Campaign.
Cincinnati. The Times-Star's
Lexington, Ky., special says: A fight
to death with knives occured in Clark
County, near Boonesboro, over the
scandal feature of the Ashland Con
gressional contest. John King, a
Breckinridge man, living in Fayette
County, met on the highway his old
friend, George Cook, w ho lives inClrrk
County. Cook said any woman who
went to hear Breckinridge speak was
do better than a courtesan. Kiug dis
mounted from his horse, saying his
wife ami daughters had heard Breck
inridge. Cook insisted it wasa shame.
He also dismounted. Both drew
knives and blood flowed freely until
Cook dropped, having three stabs in
the breast. King has escaped.

Columbia, S. C. A bloody tragedy
was enacted in Blackville, S. 0., where

old feud between Gribbon and the in

store at the time, fired the shot that
killed young Brown. The coroner pro
ceeded to hold an inquest, however,
but the sheriff arrived in the midst of
it and arrested him on a charge of hav
ing been an accessory. Trial Justice

took the testimony in relation to
Giibbou's death. The verdict was that
he was killed by Herman Brown and
thut Simon and Isndore Brown were
ace s soi ies before and after the fact.

Diamonds and Dlamoiid.Cuitlng.
In the rough that ip, just as the
fctoue has been washed out of the clay,
and broken loose from the ore a dia
mond presents the appearance of a
crystal pebble, somewhat pointed at
each end. it usually appears to be of
a brownish hue. but now and again a
ray of light will seem to leap from the
very heart of the stone. From this
rough form of the gem the diamond
cutter decides what the shape of the
finished jewel is to be. The crystal
line shape of the diamond is that of an
octahedron, although the stone is
found sometimes as a rhombic dode
cahedron, triakisoctahedron, or
hexakisoctahedron, but it is al
ways in accordance with the fubio
sys'em. It should be the aim
of the diamond cutter to pre
serve this octahedral character of the
gem. To accomplish this, the rough
stone is first split, or chipped. The
operation is a most difficult one, re
quiring an insight into the character
of each individual stone. There are
hardly two gems that can be treated
in a precisely similar manner. Every
diamond has a thorough individuality,
ond must be treated accordingly, in
order to obtain the best results. The
"splitting" is accomplished by fixing
the gem in a block of cement, after
which the angles must be split off in
accordance with the direction of the
crystallization. Flaws are aLso taken
out in this operation, ani the diamond
given its future shape.
The majority of diamonds are found
in the East Indies, on the plateau of
Dekhan, in Brzil, on the islands of
Borneo and Sumatra ; also in the Ural,
and Australia. Within recent yean
very productive diamond-mines have
been put into operation in southeast
ern Africa, the Transvaal.
The diamonds most highly prized are
the Indian and Brazilian stones; they
are generally of the purest white, the
most complete transparency "water,"
and the most brilliant "fire." Home
