Oh, the Fain of Rheumatism of ten causes the most intense suffering. Many have for yearsT, vainly sought relief from this disabling disease, and are to-day worse off than ever. Rheumatism is a blood disease; -and Swift's Specific is the only cure, cause it is the only remedy which can reach such deep-seated diseases. A few years ago I was taken with lnflamma lory which became so intense that I was weeks unable to walk.

Troubles in Wilming-i ton, End in Riot Bloodshed. Mob Wrecks Offics of a Newspaper Which Had Attacked White Women. Battle, Follows in Which Nine Ndgroes Are Killed Three Whites Are Wounded. The Entire Municipal Government signs and Successors Are Elected at Once. Re- Arrangements Are Made for Preventing Farther Trouble and the City Is Quiet. Wilmington, N. Nov. 11. After a day of bloodshed and turbulence Wilmington has subsided into compa-rative peacefulness. Nine negroes were killed and three white men -wounded during the day, one of them, William seriously. The city is inithe i-liands-of: a new municipal government i.ti- i 3 cum taw in in uiuci i uciug csiauiiisiicu. Thursday afternoon the board of aldermen resigned one by one. As each alderman vacated the remainder elected a successor, named by the citizens' committee, until the entire board was changed legally. They resigned in response to public sentiment. The new board is composed of conserv ative democratic citizens. The mayor and chief of police then resigned and the new board elected their successors, according to law. Ex-Representative Waddell was elected mayor and' IS. G. Parmelec chief of police. The first act of the new government was to swear in 250 special policemen, chosen from the ranks of reputable vrhite citizens. They are vested with the authority of the land and will take charge of the city. 'The citizens' committee will remain on guard, how-j ever, throughojrtt the town to prevenl possible attempts at The new government will devote its atten- tion to restraining recklessness among the whites as well as keeping down law- i lessness among the negroes. Further I trouble of a general or a serious nature Is not expected. Canse of the Trouble. The trouole in Wilmington commenced at 8:.30 Thursday morning, when an; armed body of citizens, numbering about 400 and led by ex-Kepre- eentative Waddell, chairman of a com mittee of 25 appointed for the purpose, i proceeded, to the publishing house of a negro newspaper, the Record, to wreck it. The editor of this paper had published an article defamatory of white women, and a mass meeting of citizens on Wednesday ordered his expulsion from the city; within 24 hours and the removal of his press. Fifteen leading negroes were, tailed in by the committee of 25 Wednesday night and directed to notify the. chairman by 7:30 Thursday morning-wbether they would agree to the removal of the press. They were informed that if no answer was returned the press would be demolished. Kb answer received by the chairman Thursday morning, and after waiting an hour the citizens proceeded in a body and demolished the fixtures of the printing office. The building was 'also fired and gutted. The leaders say that this action was the work of irresponsible persons, and as soon as the fire was discovered the fire department were called to extinguish it. Panic Among Neeroes. The burning of the printing office created a great commotion among-the negroes of the town. The rumor spread that the whites were going to burn and murder in the negro quarter. This rumor reached the negro employes of a cotton compress numbering 300 or 400. who quit work and hung about the streets in manifest terror. Other par-; ties congregated in the negro section and it was in one of these that the: first tragedy was enacted. The men were standing on a corner and were ordered to disperse. They declined, and, it is claimed, fired into the whites. The Battle Begins. A fusillade was immediately opened upon them by the whites and-three negroes were killed. Two whites were wounded slightly. One negro ran down the street and passing a residence fired a rifle at William Mayo (white) stand- ing on the veranda, shooting him, through the left lung. This negro was recognized, pursued and captured while hiding under a bed. It is said he con- hailed by a guard, refused to halt, and, continuing to advance, 'was shot by the guard." NeJjffhborlnar Towns Offer Aid. As the news of the riot spread through the neighboring state cities they offered to send help, and all such offers were declined, except in the case of Fay et te, rom which town came about 150 As nightfall came the town completely patrolled and guarded. Very ew negroes were on the streets and they were not allowed to congregate anywhere. The action of the citizens in organizing a new municipal government is expected to bring peace no more rioting is expected to-night. It developed later in the day that the negro committee summoned night had agreed to use their good offices to have the press removed, aK though the editor had disappeared and they had no authority on the premises. This instead of being delivered to the chairman of the committee of 25 in person, was put in the mail and did not reach him till three hours after. the expiration of the time limit which had been fixed for the reception of th answer. A crowd was formed at night to take from the jail and lynch two negroes, Thomas Miller and Ira Bryant, who. were arrested Thursday, charged with making threats and were regarded as dangerous cases. The mayor. Col. Waddell, promptly; prohibited the assembling of the crowd at the jail, and he, himself headed a guard of 25 men with Winchesters to guard the prisoners. BLOODSHED AT PHOENIX. Six Negroes and One White Known to i Be Dead a Result of Election Row. Washington, Nov. 11. A special to the Post from Greenwood, N. says: Five negroes lay dead at Rehobeth all day along the roadside, another was killed Thursday and likely four others arc dead and lost in the woods. One white man was buried, three others lie at the point of death and six more have been wounded. Four heads of families have left the country and armed troops of countrymen are scouring the country, hunting other victims. All of this is the outcome of an el ection row at Phenix. The trouble was precipitated on election day, when 200 1 negroes al the polls opened a fusillade at the store in which the voting was going on. In this J. L. Etheridge (white) was killed and Tolbert was wounded, The second provocation was that 9 party hunting the slayers of Etheridge was fired into and one, Miller, fatally wounded and Fleming badly hurt. The arming of the negroes at the polls, the killing of Etheridge, the firing from ambush, all conspired to kindle a flame of passion and when that will die down is difficult to tell. Jesse Williams and two others are said to have confessed taking part iri the ambuscade. Riddled with Bullets. -The incident Of the day was the kill ing of Essex Harrison. Down the road came a squad of mounted cavalrymen with Harrison marching ahead with guns and rifles drawn on him. Fifteen men lined up on the roadside. The negro was put out in the road and told to go towards the pile of four dead negroes. He started, there was a ring of rifles, and Harrison, pitched forward dead. Harrison, it is alleged, was a member of the crowd that killed Etheridge. Parties were out searching all day for negroes who, it was said, are ringleaders in the rioting. Fletl to. Escape The whites are particularly incensed against all the Tolberts and hold them responsible for the trouble. A party went to kill Tom Tolbert, but some one prevailed on' the hot heads not to kill a wounded and dying man. John R. Tolbert, collector of the port at Charleston, and Joe Tolbert left the county and went to Charleston. Reed Tolbert has gotten to Greenville. Ezra Tolbert is quartered with friends. His son was shot and this, with the plea that he ia a has nine children and a wife, alone has sa veer him from: death. A committee waited on J. W. Tolbert, assistant postmaster at McCormicks. and asked him to get out of that town. He. Several in the mob wanted to burn Tolbert's property, but better advice prevailed. Searching for the Blacks. Fully 300 men scoured the country Thursday around; Phoenix where the first trouble occurred, hoping to find the bauds of negroes said to be congregated in the neighborhood. The Tol berts are of good family, made fine r.outhern soldiers and have been republicans since the war. The atmosphere seems to have cleared np considerably and no further trouble is expected. The whites are heavily armed and are prepared for trouble at any moment. Guards and regular sentinels are posted at night. The two negroes who are known to have shot Etheridge have not yet been captured. Eight negroes have been lynched within two weeks time in neighboring counties.

Boon ra my Fan3 waved slowly, and there was a rustling of skirts 6kirts emart and up to date in cut. An usher, dressed neatly and in a style suited to his office, showed me to a seat, and I followed his light and springy footsteps over the carpeted aisle, for I was in church 8 a city church, the "most stylish" one of its kind, I had been told, to be found in St. Louis, or in parts roundabout, for the matter of that. 8 The building, I noticed, was a good one. The walls were and behind the pulpit there were two large and not inartistic stained glass windows. The big pipe organ and the choir were at the left of the pulpit in a small room that opened into the church proper with quite imposing arches. My gaze wandered from the parson's correct suit of black, spotless shirt front and white lawn tie to a row of modish headgear that bobbed in front of me, and then back to the preacher's face, which was nearly as black as the clothes he wore. This was a negro church, yes, surely, but oh, shade of progressiveness! where were the old-time characteristics that But hush! The minister is giving out a hymn. It is not unfamiliar; I had heard it before. It sounded now like a thing heard in a dream "I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there. When the general roll is called I'll be there." The choir stood up to sing, the organ pealed forth, and the soft melody of negro voices blended with it. The gayly turbaned head down in the far corner was bent in reverent attitude, and I watched it, the while I saw in memory's eye-7-a humble little church all whitewashed inside and It stood among the trees, this little church tall, straight pine trees that strewed their brown needles so thickly in the fall that the spring violets were hidden each year until the feet often shoeless ambling slowly to the whitewashed church pushed them aside, or the tiny, hands of the little children from the "big house" scattered the glossy spear-points about in quest of the damp purple blossoms. Up toward the front, in the "mourners corner," sat Uncle Jake Sloan (one of the and Aunt Rachel Whitcomb, with others. Mammy 'Liza was a little removed from the rest, with Flora in tow. Flora's propensity for "shouting" was well known, and her inability to rise, betimes the next morning to get breakfast for the "white folks" after an afternoon and evening of "shouting" gave mammy much. concern. 'Liza looked at the big dancing red cotton roses and yellow ribbons I on Flora's hat and shook her head. There Was hat, especially a hat with gay roses and ribbons. Since Flora had spent a whole month's wages on that hat Mammy 'ijiza concluded she'd bear watching. 'Vanity, all is says de preacher," she had quoted to Flora. Away floated the; sound of voices on the murmuring breezes that slipped through the tops of the tall pines. Flora's big, chinalike eyes rolled. "Amen!" came from the corner where Uncle Jake Sloan sat. "I'll be ther', brother, Yes, Lord, I'll be Mammy 'Liza has ceased to watch Flora now, and her portly body sways from side topside. "De spirit am movin' all de sinners mighty ily," shouted the preacher. "Come down tiro de roof, Lord.

Probably he would lie there all night in a "trance." were not uncommon in the little "piny woods" church. "An' de Lord, came down tro de roof an' took 'Liger up in a chariot of fire. But 'Liger ivernt no sinner. De Lord'U send fire dat'il burn de sinner up," continued the preacher. '4 1 And therTanQther burst of song: Army, army, army crossin ovah. We'll cross de ribber ob Jordan Army crossin' ovah. "When de fire ob de Lord comes de sinners '11 burn. Lord, save de sinners! heah what ain't no sinner had better, be happy." This was the signal. Flora was happy. She'd 'sperienced 'ligion" long ago. Away went the hat with its big red roses. Flora's arms were moving wildly above her head. Her body swayed with a weird, lithesome grace. One woman joined her "in the holy dance' and then another. A tall, slim, ebony man who had fervently clapped his hands at the preacher's exclamations got up and caught the now wavering Flora by the wrists. The girl's kinky hair had come unbound and was nymg wild ly about her face as she shook off the man'a restraining grasp, chanting breathlessly "I don't! want: Brer John to hoi' me, I wants Brer Pete to hoi' me; I'll in sich a way derrectly It'll take two tree to hoi' me." "Oh, you mus' be a lubber of de Lo-ord Or you can't go to Hebben when you die. somebody sung out. The ine was caught up andover "and over again sounded tne re- 1 "Oh, you mus be a luhber of de Lo-ord Or you can't go to Hebben when you die." Slowly tne tantastic, gracetul swaying stopped. Some, exhausted, sank down upon the rough benches. The preacher in his long black coat that was fast turning green beamed from hia shock of grizzled hair and shaggy brows upon his fervent con gregation. At the door of the little church he paused to say to Mammy 'Liza that "de spirit of de Lord had shore been wid dat getherinV I The sun was getting lower and the shadows that the pines cast across the hard-' beaten path to the church door were grow ing longer. The breathing of the "trance" man on the sawdust floor could be heard -plainly. Uncle Jake. Sloan stood in pious with other of the "elders." He would presently walk slowly to his home and after -saying "grace" eat his Sunday evening -meal of chicken there was always chicken at Uncle Jake Sloan's on Sunday and again return to the little church, this himself "exhort" and "lead de meetinV 'I. started. The benediction had been pronounced. The organist 'was playing a proper selection' while the congregation walked down the aisle to the door. 1 What 'had become of the old turbaned there it was, near the church entrance now. 1 The row of modish millinery moved properly and quietly before At the vestibule it stopped and I heard talk- of a ''ladies'. sewing society and a "mothers meeting." "How different," I thought, "it all is from the little whitewashed church ha the piny woods. How different the ways of these dusky-skinned women from the ways of Mammy lazarwho always did hate a hat." Modeste H. Jordan, in St; Louis Re i GIVES HIS YERSM OF THE AFFAIR. Tne Cabinet Discusses tne Troablea In tbe Carolina New Mnnicipal Government Restores at Washington, Nov. R. Tolbert, whose father and brother were shot in the recent race war at Phoenix, S. was at the department of justice to secure an investigation of the Jriot by the federal authorities. He was accompanied by some of the. republican politicians of the state. The elder Tolbert is now in the state penitentiary for safety from popular violence. Mr. Tolbert says that the true facts of the rioting have not been given. The facts are, he said, as follWws: Tolbert's Version. J13: republicans of my district. For the pur pose of making a contest before the house, my brother, T. P. Tolbert, agreed ta be "present at the polling place at Phoenix for the purpose of witnessing the affidavits of colored men who were rejected as voters because of their Inability to with the requirements of the constitution. My brother took no part in the management of the polling place, which was in the hands of democrats. He simply sat on the piazza of Mr. Lake's house, and witnessed the affidavits given him, depositing these affidavits in a box prepared foithe purpose. Mr. Etheridge, the, white man who was killed, was an election manager at a precinct two miles away. He left his own precinct and, with a party of men, went to Phoenix. He walked up with his party to where my brother was sitting at a table, and deliberately kicked over the table and box in which were put the certificates. Then he assaulted my brother. In a short while the democratic voters who were in the same house rushed out and commenced shooting into the crowd. The negroes fled. My brother, who is probabliy dead by now, told me that Etheridge iwas killed by shots from his own friends. My brother did not have a weapon on his person." j. Mr. Tolbert said that he was at Abbeville, five miles away from the shooting1. His father, J. R. Tolbert, was at Verdry, another precinct. When the. elder Tolbert learned of. theTriofelhHeJvstarted to tlie scene in his buggy, accompanied by a little ten-year-old nephew. Before he reached the scene he was 3 net by a riiob, which riddled the buggy with bullets, and wounded him and th littlet boy a number of times. It is said the boy was killed by the P. Tol-bcrt, who was first shot by the mob, was aided to his home some distance from the scene, and was pursued by the mob While lying in bed in a dying condition the mob attempted to make him give the name of the person who had killed Etheridge. He said he cpuldj. not because Etheridge had been killed by the democrats On finding his father so badly wqundeM. bert procured' to the wounds Of the se-Mor Tolbert. After placing his family in a safe placed Mr. Tolbert came on to this ciiy. Mr. Tolbert states that his brother said that so far as he could see no shots were fired by the negroes at Phoenix. They fl ed as soon as the shooting commenced, leaving T. P. Tolbert as the target for the mob to shoot at. Talks witb tbe President. At a late hour Mr. Tolbert, accompanied by Solicitor-General Richards, of the department of justice, called at the White house and had- an extended interview with President McKinley. He related to the president the story of his experiences in South Carolina," substantially as given above; entering into: minute details of the trouble on (election day. The president listened attentively to the recital, but gave no indication of what action, if any, might be taken. However, he requested AIrt Tolbert to see the attorney-general and make to him: a full statement of the situation as he viewed it. Returning to the depart- ment of justice, Mr. Tolbert had an in terview with Attorney-General Griggs, who had just returned to the city from New Jersey. At the conclusion of the interview the attorney-general said he would have a conference with the president upon the matter as soon as possible and it would then be determined what, if would be done. At night Attorney-General Griggs spent some time with the president, but so far as could be ascertained no decision of the question presented by Mr.jTolbert was reached. The department of jus- tice has taken steps to obtain official information bearing upon the trouble in South Carolina and it is said to be entirely unlikely that, in the absence of such information, the president would take any action in the matter. i Discuss Race Troubles, 'f. Washington, Nov. 12. The cabinet meeting Friday lasted over two hours. While a large amount of routine busi- ness was transacted considerable at- tention was devoted to the race trou bles in the Carolinas. The; president expressed much concern over the situation, but it was decided that the developments up to this time did not warrant federal interference The conditions in those two states will, however, be kept under close surveillance, with a view to action, should it become necessary.
