AT im Intense Political Excitement in South Carolina. WAU ON THB MAFIA. Ittllan tu Dowa by thn Citlx-ii4 ft X-w Blood-hed Feared in the Fierce Fight of the Contending Factions. Negro Tote Will the Deciding Factor In Struf elc, WThlch H-ts Not Equaled In Virulence for CHARLESTON-, S, C., Oct situ-1 ation in South Carolina, from a political Standpoint, isdecidedly peculiar. Every- body Is talking politics and tho people are wrought up to a high pitch of ex-' citomenu The excitement is confined to no nor to any particular section of the State. It is general throughout tbe whole State and affects both races. The few days now remaining before the general election in November bid fair j to be days well filled with bitterness' and even bloodshed. The leaders of j the opposition factions aro hard at work j and neither side will leave a single stone j unturned to insure victory. There are many who regret that such a stats of i things has corno. but on the other hand there are others who welcome tho break- ing of old party lines. All recognize the fact that- the negro vote will bo used, and many admit that the nogro will be the deciding factor in tbe 6ght between the whites. A great many bewail this recognition of the ne- gro's right to vote and declare tho re- sult will be that in the next four years the blacks will have control of the State. The other side retort that it is the part of wisdom to recognize the fact that the negro vote can not bo suppressed much longer, and say they will take charge of it now and getcontrolof it They say that recognition of the negro vote is but a question of time, and that, too, of a very short time, and that if they do not use it their opponents will use it two years hence to keep themselves in office.
