It may not be amiss to here
mention the hanging of Shadrach
Jacobs. In the year 1809 or 1810
Ezekiel Wooley, a constable, had
a state warrant to arrest Shad
rach Jacobs, and while riding
with Capt. Andrew Feaster to
wards and near Jacobs' residence
Capt. Feaster was killed by a
rifle ball fired by Jacobs. The
aecount given and proved in court
:n 1890 or 1830, twet yarm
afterwards, when Jacobs was ea
tried and convicted of the mur- ti,
der, was that Jacobs shot Feas- di
ter thinking he was Wooley. It tr
seems that Wooley asked Feaster ri
to change horses not long before
the latter was shot, and it being d<
near dusk in the evening, Jacobs ti
could not discriminate between ft
them, Feaster riding Wooley's m
horse. Jacobs absconded to the s<
wilds of Georgia soon after the c
act was committed, and his where- o
abouts was discovered twenty ai
years after and he was arrested p
and brought to Winnsboro, con- z
victed of murder and hanged in o
1829 by Sheriff Moore. In this
instance was verified the truth of

COTTON TRADE WITH CUBA 1M NOT
Washington, -April 29.-In a
recent -statement given to the
press by the division of insular
affairs of the war department a
considerable loss -was indicated
in the trade of Cuba with the
United States for the first 8
months of 1900 as compared with
the same period of 1899. It is
now explamed by the division of
insular affairs .that in the state
of g~od and silver coin and bullion
was included in the total value of
commerce between Cuba and the
United States. Eliminating the
coin shipments it is ascertained
that instead of there being ade
crease in the value of the imports
into Cuba from the United States,
there is an increase of -$1,222,205
for the first eight months of 1900,
over the same priod of 1899.
It is pointe out that American
manufacturers cannot expect to
dominate the Cuban trade unless
they cater to Cuban tastes. This
is true of cotton goods. It costs
no more to bring a cargo fromi
Barcelona than from New York
and the Cubans, like the Mexi
cans, have come to prefei- the
goods of European markets and'
the European manufacturers, true
to application, have come tolnow

make the gosexpressly for that
The cotton statistics of the
United States present one pecu
liar fact, namely, the large impor
tation into Cuba drg'n the fis
eight months of 1899 n the sub
sequent falling off during the same
period of 1900. There were im
ported from the United States in
1899, cotton goods to the value of
$990,310 and in 1900 to the value
of $279,867. The division of in
sular affairs explains this on the
theory that importers expected to
secure under valuation if they
bought in the United States, but
have discovered that under our
regime all goods are valued on
An analysis of the statistics o
the cotton trade of the United
States and the United Kingdom
with Spanish American countries
and Cuba reveals the following
First, the United States is sell
ing more than its proportionate
share of cottons to Cuba. Second,
that the United States is a very
modest competitor of the United
Kingdom in cottons, and last that
the United Kingdom made extra
ordinary importations of cotton
into Cuba during the first eight
months of 1900. Cuba imported
$3,500,000 worth of cotton goods.

The following announcement as
o the coming State summer

endent of education:
"The State summer school for
ihe negro teachers in this State
wil be held at Benedict college
l'nning June 20 and closing
Fuly 17. The object of this school,
is ast year, is to better train the
principals and leading teachers
imong the negro race for posi
tios of leadership in education;
md selections have been made
rom among the ablest school
superintentents in the State to
teach in this school. The faculty
will consist of Mr. S. H. Ed
munds of Sumter, as principal;
Superintendents E. C. Coker of
Marion, L. T. Baker of Lancaster,
and Prof. D. D. Wallace of Wof
ford college. In addition to these,

be $9 for the four wieks, and
everything will be made as pleas
ant and as comfortable as possi
ble for those who attend."
Superintendent McMahan has
been planning this 4selool for
some time, and has given much
thoght to it. Apart from the
question of imparting sch'olarship
and teaching ability to the teach
er, he states his main object
thus: "To give to the negroes the
encouraging assurance that the
controling educational forces in
the State are not indifferent to
his welfare and are not content
to leave him to his own unaided
eforts; to prevent the .widening
of the chasm between the white
people and the negroes; to remove
prejudices and misunderstand
igs; to extend to the weaker race
the encouraging aid of the stron
In announcing' the second term
of this school Superintendent
McMahan desires to state three
specific reason~s why ambitious
n o teachers should attend:
'irt. To increase their scholar
ship and skill as teachers and to
learn how they measure up to the
standard of the best educators
among the white people.
"Second. To make known their
ability and merits to tho~ leading
school superitne m~i the
State, whose knowl sand
recommendations wbud prove
most helpful to the negro teach
ers seeking to be employed in the
graded schools of the towns.
Third. To get the white man's
