with about a norn:al amount of sun

ditions of cloudiness prevailed in dif
The average temperature wag
about normal in the northern and cen
tral portions of the State and was
nearly three degrees above normal in
the southern par:. The heat was ex
cessive on the 8th and on the 9th,
when the maximum temperatures
ranged from slightly above 90 to
slightly above 100 degrees, the high
est maximum for the week having
been 102 degrees at Florence on the
Sth. The night temperatures were
generally about normal and ranged
between 65 and 75 degrees. with an
extreme minimum' of 57 degrees at
Heath Sprngs on the 5th.
The average precipitation for the
week was about half the normal
amount for the same period although
widely separated localities had exces
sive rains owing to the occurrence of
thunderstorms. A few stations re
ported no rain for the week. Rain
was falling in the coast sections when
the week ended while at the same
time the interior of the State had
clear to partly cloudy weather.

A Story of Horror.
Union. Special.-The story of the
murder of Mose Hughes, the negro
who late Thursday afternoon was
found in Tyger river, his hands and
feet bound together with ropes and
body weighted down with roeks, grows
in ghasdiness as the details become
better known. That well-known
white nil-i are concerned in the crime
there seems little reason to doubt.
Indeed. it is understood that one ne
gro. John Sartor. Jr.. s:ivs that he
sawI W. R. Gilliam. whose barn was
burned on April 27. presumably by
an incendiary, shoot Mose. which
confirms the story that reached here
from Carlisle that Mose was seen be
ing carried wounded and bleeding to
the river, where bound, he was thrown
in. Whether he was dead or alive
then. even the physician, who testified
at the coroner's inquest, was unable
to state positively, owing to the body
being so decomposed when discoveredl.
It is learned that last Saturday Mose
came to visit his s >n, C lorence Hughes
who is in jail charged with two other
negroes, Berry Tucker and John
Shumpert. with b~urning Gilliam's
barn. When he reached the river
Sanday returning it was so high he
could not cross, so left his mule at
Doe Stewart's, colored, and then
erossedl by way of the Seaboard Air
Line bridge. It is said that he was
then and there met by W. R. Gilliam
and Douglass English. who sought to
extract from him some information
as to the fire. It is understood that
that day or the preceding one. Gil
liam had gotten some liquor from
Chester. and that h~e had been drink
ing heavily before meeting Mose.
Miller Has Resigned.
Orangeburg. Special.-Tom Miller.
president of the State college for ne

Miller's resignation was reported here
and 21i11er when seen stated that he
had forwarded the letter of resigna
tion to Governor Heyward and he did
not care to make public its contenis
until the governor should do so. It
is a matter of common knowledge
that there have been differences in the
faculty du'ring the last session. Miller
recommended to the board the dis
cbarge of two of the teachers, Lillian
Mack and Louise B. Fordham, but at
the recent meeting of the board in Co
lumbia the two teachers were reeleet

For a time the entire harbor front

the north side. the flames being with
diliculty kept within the contines of
the wharf of the Merchants' & Min
rs' Transportation Company, and
)in the south side a stubborn battle
being fought to prevent. a wholesale
destruction of property by tire
preading from the steamship Essex

Five other men were resened with

the National House and Senate.
. he Hoaze.
ita vr\ lar,.!ie proportion of
the memnbr !p. Sen.C due to thte ac
tiviry of the Lepublican and Demo
cratic whips. the House passed a rule
sending the railroad rate bill back to
conference as asked for by the Sen
ate, without ei en an expression of
its wishes as t. any of the amend
ments to the bitL. The rule was de
bated for forty minutes. The leaders
participated in the dieussion. the
Democrats taki.i- the position that
the time was o:)ortune to concur in
the sleep)iig cat amendment and in
struct the conferees as to the anti
pass ifmendment. Although the Dem
ocrats were aided by eight Republi
cans, they eculd nlot command votes
enough to defeat the rule, which was
adopted 134 to 9).
Mr. Dalzell Presents Rule.
When the Hot:se met. Mr. Dalzell.
of Pennsylvania, presented a rul e
from the commi tee on rules taking
the railroad rate bill from the Speak
er's table and s-ndin, it to confer
ence as requested by the Senate.
Mr. Williams. of Mississippi. tke
minority leader. desired to offer an
amendment. but ivith a shake of his
head Mr. Dalzell refused permision.
Mr. Dalzell then moved the previ
ous question. wihereupon Mr. Wil
liams demanded the yeas and nays,
and the roll was called.
By a vote of 136 to 92. the previ
ous question was ordered.
Mr. Dalzell explained the parlia
mentary status of the rate bill. stat
ing that the Senaie had amended the
bill and that on the request of the
House a conferenve between the two
houses had been agreed to. Now the
Senate has re-committed the bill to
the conferees. Tl e rule proposes to
grant the request of the Senate for
a further conference.
Mr. Williams' Amendment.
Mr. Williams, tie minority leader,
said that the Hoise was pretty fa
miliar with the riles by this time.
If they wanted to be eagged. all they
had to do was to vote for the rule.
If they da ted to *xpress themselves
.)n tihe great questionus involved in the
rate bill, they would vote no. He
said the gentlemat from Pennsylva
nia, Mr. Dalzell. 1:ad promised the
House that it 'woild have a chance
to vote on the ame.ndments. and now
brings in a rule poiihitinC an hon

Statehood Report in Senate.
The conference reoort on the state
hood bill was withdrawn from, and
again presented to the Senate, the
new report containing the compro
mise provision agreed upon by the
conferees of the two houses. There,
was some discussion of the power of
the conferees to withdraw the re

permitted by a vote. The new re
port was not consideired.

.Teasus andl Thi-r L- ee tetrre
Lessonx 1. Tiop: C ma -
son1 is .1 partz of Chris:'s SrIou ol the
Mount. Men are known by their fruits;
good trees bring forth god fruit: cor
rurst trees bring forth corrupt fruit: a
profession of godliness is not sufficient.
II. Topic: The Lord's day. Place:
In and near Capernauni. While Jesus
and His disciples were walking through
a field of grain on the Sabbath day the
discipl-s plucked the grain and ate it
to satisfy their hunger: the Pharisees
found fault: Jesus justified their course
by referring to David's act in eating
the shew-bread. and to the priests who
were obliged to work on the Sabbath;
He healed a man with a withered
hand; they would lift a sheep out of a
pit on the Sabbath day. and a man is
better than a sheep.
III. Topic: A great faith and a great
Helper. Places: Capernaum: Nain.
This miracle was performed soon after
the Sermon on the Mount. A sick
slave; the elders sent; the centurion's
good deeds urged; Jesus went with
them; friends are sent, and the centur
ion goes himself, to meet Jesus; he
says. I am not worthy, trouble not
yourself. speak the word only: Jesus
says this is great faith, not found in
Israel: the cure wrought at"once. At
Nain He met a funeral proegssion: a
young man raised from the dead; fear
fell on the people.
IV. Topic: Jesu- the sinner's friend.
Place: In sone town of Galilee. per
haps in Capernaum. Simon. a Phari
see. invited Jesus to dine; a woman-a
sinner, came in and washed, wiped,
kissed and anointed His feet. Simon
had failed to perform the commoi
acts of hospitality. and Jesus now calls
his attention to his coldness and lack
of icve; reproves him lor being dis
pleased with the woman; a parable; a
question; & woman forgiven.
V. Topic: How to hear the word.
Place: ar Capernaum. on the shore
of the ta of Galilee. Jesus left Pe
ter's house and the multitudes followed
Him; spoke many things in parables:
this was H:1s first one; four kinds of
ground represent four classes of peo
ple; many things caused unfruitful
ness. We can, by God's help, cause
the soil of our hearts to be changed.
VI. Topic: Problems of good aud
evil in the world. Place: Near Caper
naum, on the shore of the Sea of Gali
lee. Jesus speaks another parable.
Good seed is sown, but an enemy
sowed zares. Both must grow togeth
er until the harvest. Jesus explai".s
the parable in vs. 37-33. At the end of
the world those who "do iniquity" r.l1
be cast into a furnace of fire, but the
righteous will "shine forth as the sun
in the kingdom of their Father."
"VII. Topic: Great facts respecting
salvation. Place: On the eastern shore
of the Sea of Galilee. After Jesus had
concluded "the parables by the seta."
He crossed over the Sea of Galilee toi
the eastern shore. Here a fierce denzo,
niac met Him. When he saw Jesus :ae
ran and worshiped Him; Jesus com
manded the unclean spirit to come out
of the man: the demons entered into a
herd of swine; the swine perished in
the sea; the people besought Jesus to
depart out of their coasts.
VIII. Topic: Lessons from the death
of John the Baptist. Place: The for
tress Macherus. The death of John oc
curred about the time the twelve re
turned. Herod Antipas was ruler of
Galilee and Perea. When he heard of
the mighty works of Christ he said
John is risen. John had rebuked sin in
IX. Topic: The great gospel feast.
Place: Near Bethsaida. God can sup
ply bread where it is least likely to be
found. Five thousand are fed, besides
women and children; twelve baskets
of fragments gathered. After perform
ing this wonderful miracle the people
were about to make Jesus a king, but
He would not permit it. That night
He prayed nearly all night on the
nmounlain alone, and between 3 and 6
o'clock went to His disciples, walking
on the waves.
X. Topic: Bringing the unsaved to
Christ. Place: On the borders of Phoe
nicia. Sermons on the bread of life
and pollution, just delivered; the peo
ple plot against Him; Jesus and His
disciples go to the borders of Phoeni
cia: a Gentile woman beseeches Him to
cast the devil out of her daughtert
Jesus replies that it is not proper to
give the children's bread to dogs: she
asks for the crumbs; severe tests do
not discourage her: Jesus commends
her faith; her request is granted and
her daughter is healed.
XL. Topic: Confessing Christ. Place:
Near Caesarea Philippi. Jesus asked
His disciples who imen said He was:
some said John the Baptist. and others
Elijah. Jeremiah orone of the prophets.
Who do you say I am?~ Peter says, the
Christ. Jesus blessed Peter; man had.
not revealed it, but the Father had:
Christ is the foundation rock: gates of
hades shall not prevail against His
church; the keys of .the kingdom of
heaven given: Christ tells of Ils death;
Peter rebukes Him: get thee behind
Me. Satan: saving and losing the life;
no profit to gain the whole world and
lose the soul.

uration. Place: Mount Herm'ion. Pe
ter'. Jamnes and JIohn go with JTesus
into the mnounit to pray. As Jesus prays
