WA iil\mov , Jan. 7 [ Special Tel-
rcnm to the Hrr.j Congressman Snnlls
lias Illcd his notice of conttst ol the election
of Colonel Klllott , who has been given the
scat Smalls has held In confess so loiiif.
Thedlsti let was made foi the purpose ot con-
solldatinc the colored votu of South Carolina
and Iscomposcd. like the notorious shoi ti Ing
dlsti ict ol Mississippi , of the counties of tlm
state In which the blacks outnumber the
whites. Until the hst election no donioriat
ever thoujrht of innnlnt ; against Smalls In a
district vvheie tlieie were over . ' 50,000 black
votes , and onlv 2,030 or n.OTO whiles , and his
has ttsmllv been about 2VDO. This
time however , it was determined to make
tlie * delegation Irom South Carolina solhllj
democratic , and from the evidence which
Smalls presented tltoj went about It In a
mastcily manner. The election commis
sioner of tlie state designated onlj about one-
thlid ot thu usual ntnnbci of voting places
and ariangcd them so irregularly through
the dlstict | that some people had to go over
thltty miles to vote. Instead of having -
ing a ballot box In uveiy town
theio would bo two In ono placp and
none In the next. In this amusement ,
also , theru was a dellbciato attempt topic-
vent tlie negroes voting bv appointing the
polling places In some out of the waj coinei
wlilch was not sufficiently de-scribed In the
pioclamalion and which the negiocs could
not find. In almost evciv instance a clilfei-
cnt location was selected from that vv hero
they were accustomed to go to vote , and
hiindicds of negroes who had scon no notice
ot tlio change gatlieicd at the old places and
waited all clay lor the polls to open , many ol
them thinking that they must have made a
mlslakoand come to vote on the wrong daj- .
The notices had been published in pipers of
limited ciiculatlon and those which Hie blacks
were not accustomed to load. It Is claimed
that not onu in tin of the legular voting pop
ulation weru polled for tills reason and in
precincts vvheie such deception could not ba
practiced even woiso methods were adopted.
The election 'commissioner appointed
two white and onu coloied judge
in some of the pieeinets , but in otheis
Iho judges were all white clemociats.
Wheio It was seen that the demociatic vote
was In excess of that of the lopubllcans the
jndces would staj at the polls and count the
ballots. Wheio the black ? came out in foico
and voted I or Smalls the trick was for tlm two
democratic judges to beco'iio suddenly ill or
lo bu sent lor liom tlieit homos in cieat haste
01 totiseanyolhci uxcnsc lo leave tlio polls
in ch ugu ot the one u-publlcan judge , vvliich
would ol coiitsc invalidate1 the election , and
tliu whole vote would bo tin own out. In this
vvav tlio democrats managed to' count the
vote for Snnlls from 25,000 , as It usually is , to
between 3,000 and -1,000 , and to letm n Colonel
nillott , the democratic candidate , by sevcial
hundred majoiity. Manyot tlie demociatic
novvspipois in South Carolina , as well as
leading democrats , liavo denounced thu
fiaucls and demanded that the certllieito
should be given toStmlls , but Colonel L'lllott
comes liom tliu tip top of tlie aristoci.icv and
wauled a seat in congress. It is not thought
that thu dcmociats in the house will allow
him to retain U , hovvuvci , bc-causeof tlie ellect
it would have on tin ; next picsidentiil elec
