This year's cotton crop will be sold
for 14 cents during September and
October and 15 cents thereafter. This
was the agreement of the cotton grow
ers -of the South attending the Na
tional Farmers' union made at Shaw
nee, Okla. Little of the proceedings
of the union was made public, al
though aside from the price the farm
ers ask for their cotton, good roads,
parcels post and dabbling in cotton
futures will be discussed by the con
vention. The report of the live stock
commission urges diversified farming
and stock raising. The congressional
immigration committee recommends
increasing the tax head, excluding il
literate adults from America, and the
fining of foreign steamers for bring
ing to this countiy undesirables that
could be rejected on the other side.
"No American cotton crop ever
grown has sold for as much as the
one just marketed, the total value,
including the seed, having been $1,

Nails driven into pine trees "boxed"
for turpentine is said to be the cause
of the bloody feud between the Coo
leys and the Gays in Santa Rosa coun
ty, Florida, which has so far resulted
in the death of three of the Cooleys.
One of the members of the Cooley
family leased turpentine timber to the
Gays, and when the first nails were
found one accused the other of doing
the work. It is understood t>^e nails
were driven by children at play.

THE CENSUS IS GIVEN BY RACES
-ONLY 44.S PER CENT ARE
GAIN IN WHITES IS GREATER
Preliminary Comparative Statistics of
Population Issued by Census Direc
tor Rand Under Supervision of Wm.
C. Hunt, Chief Statistician.
Columbia.-A special from Wash
ington states that the preliminary
comparative statistics of the popula
tion of South Carolina were issued
by Census Director Durand. The
tabulations were made under the su
pervision of Wm. C. Hunt, chief sta
tistician of the division of population
and are the result of the first count,
in detail of the returns of the 13th
census. The figures are, therefore,
subject to possible revision, but it is
believed that the changes, if any,
will not be material. The figures re
late to the state, the city of Charles
ton, the other cities of 10,000 and
over, and the counties. The total
population of the state and of Char
leston is distributed into white, ne
gro and all other, and the percentage
proportion of each is given for thc
censuses of 1910, 1900 and 1890. The
decennial percentage of increase or
decrease for the same classification
for the decade, 1900, 1910, also ls
stated. The figures for the counties
are divided into white and negro, the
later including Chinese, Japanese and
Indians, but the number of such are
so small that they do not materially
affect the figures given for negroes.
Similar statements for the other
Southern states are being prepared and
will probably be issued in the near
The figures show that of South
Carolina's total population of 1,515,-,
400, only 679,162, or 44.8 per cent.,
are white. The negro population,
835,843, forms 55.2 per cent, of the
whole. -The percentage of increase,
as figured by the census department,
indicates that the state has gained
more whites than negroes, the per
centage being 21.8 for the whites, and
6.8 for the negroes. The total growth
in population was 13.1.
The figures for the cities of Char
leston, Columbia, Greenville and
Spartanburg are interesting as show
ing the additions to the white popu
lation of those towns.

Are Resolved to Hold Cotton.
At a meeting of the Barnwell
County Farmers' union, held at
Barnwell, a resolution was adopted
to the effect that the members of
the union hold 50 per cent, of their
cotton until the price reaches 13
cents per pound. As many farmers
in this county are not members of
the union, they were requested and
urged to cooperate with the mem
bers in their efforts to get better
prices for the staple. Owing to the
inclement weather the meeting was
not as largely attended as it was
hoped, but the interest manifested
by those present made up for the
scarcity in numbers.
Court At Orangeburg Convenes.
The September term of court of
general sessions for Orangeburg

IN READINESS FOR UrtuiNG
Eight Hundred Applicants Accepted
For the 1911-1912 Session of Clem
son College-Opening Near.
Clemson College.-Dr. W. M. Riggs,
president of Clemson college, in an
interview stated that everything
would be in readiness for the open
ing ,0t the college. The work on
the barracks is nearing completion.
The additional story to barracks No.
1, giving 50 new rooms, has added
greatly to the attractiveness of the
building. The porch with its big col
umn? will increase the beauty and
comfort of barracks No. 2. The porch
will not be completed by the time for
the opening, but will be finished at
an early date.
The additional rooms will give ac
commodations to about 100 more stu
dents and all available space will be
occupied. There are over 800 ac
cented applicants. At least 800 will
be pr?t mt at the opening, but this
number will likely be scaled down to
about 730, as that is the running
capacity bf the institution. More have
been accepted than can be per
manently accommodated, because ex
perience, has shown that a consider
able number fail to make the classes
they are trying for and return to
their homes or go to other schools.
Every indication points to the largest
and mest promising opening the col
lege has ever had.
Practically all members of the fac
ulty and officers of the college re
turned to Clemson on September 1,
and they have been busy In their re
spective departments getting all de
tails in readiness for the opening of
the session. Various members of thc
faculty spent the summer at work
teaching in summer schools in thi3
state and in other lections of tr
country. Members of the agricultu
ral faculty have spent an unusually
bMsy summer in holding farmers'
institutes throughout the state and
in making addresses at meetings of
various kinds. The farm demonstra
tion train traversed the entire stare
and did excellent work that will tell
on the prosperity of the common
wealth in years to come.
Examination For Postal Service.
An examination will be held at
Columbia on November 1 for the po
sition of clerk and carrier in the post
office service. Regarding the salaries
paid those holding these positions
and the chance for promotion, the
circular issued by the civil service
commission says: "Clerks in offices
of the first and second classes and
carriers in the city delivery service
are divided into six grades, as fol
lows: First grade, salary $600;
second grade, salary $800; third
grade, salary $900; fourth grade,
salary, 1,000; fifth gade, salary, $1,
100; sixth grade, salary $1.200.
Clerks and carriers at first-class of
fices will be promoted successively
to the fifth grade, and clerks and
carriers at second-class .offices will
be promoted successively to the
fourth grade. All promotion of both
clerks an4~-J3Brriers will be made at
the beginning of the quarter follow
ing the expiration of a year's ser
vice in the next lower grade. No pro
motion will be made except upon evi
dence satisfactory to the postoffice
department of the efficiency and
faithfulness of the employee during
the preceding year. When a clerk
or carrier fails of promotion be
cause of unsatisfactory service he
may be promoted at the beginning
ol the vsecond quarter thereafter, or
of any subsequent quarter, on evi
dence that his record has been sat
isfactory during that period.
Pomise Fight Over Bridge.
What bids fair to become a warm
contest was begun before the coun
ty board of commissioners of Lex
ington when Attorney E. L. Asbill
of Leesville, representing D. L. Ep
ting and others, asked for a hearing
as to. the location of the new steel
bridge to be erected by the county
commissioners near Amick's ferr>
It seems that a majority of thc peo
ple have agreed that the bridge
should be erected a few miles fur
ther down the river, claiming, it
would be of more benefit to the peo
ple of Lexington county than it
would be to erect a bridge at Arnlck's
where, it is said, It would benefit
other counties more than Lexington.
Clemson Mandamus Not Up.
The .mandamus proceedings Insti
tut nd by. W. B. Tayloh and Guy B.
Tailor of Lexington county against
Col) L. Blease, governor, chairman
of the state board of education, J. E.
Swearingen, secretary of the board,
W. M. Riggs, president of Clemson
.college; the faculty of Clemson col
lege, and Jefferson D. Sharp, did not
come up before Judge J. S. Wilson
as was expected. The proceedings
involve the right of a preparatory
student at Clemson to a scholarship
in the coilege.
Has Been Acquitted of Murder Charge
In the..court ?f general sessions M.
H. Kelly, a well-known citizen of
Greenville and a man of some promi
nence, was acquitted of a charge of
murdering James Boyle, also white
and rather well known. A few wit
nesses were introduced to show that
Kelly fired the shots in self-defense,
after which the solicitor stated that he
would not ask for a verdict. Judge
Memminger thereupon directed a ver
dict of not guilty. James Boyle was
shot down on the sidewalk in front
of the United States postoffice.
Cotton Crop is Decidedly Off.
The continued rains and the low
prices have decidedly hurt the market
in cotton at Lynchburg. Some farm
ers complain that their cotton is
sprouting in the boll and all report a
considerable quantity on Lue ground,
lt is estimated by good judges that
tho crop is off at least 25 per cent
and some estimate it at even more
than that. Prices have ranged from
1.1.15 to 11.46, with very few sales.
The farmers seem disposed to hold for
l?gl?er prices. Senator E. D. Smith ad
iaas the farmers to hold their cotton
?OUTH CAROLINA TEAM FINISHED
NEAR BOTTOM AT CAMP
WILL HIRE COACH FOR TEAM
Adjutant General Moore is Much Dis
appointed Over Poor Showing Made
by State Team-Says That Over
Anxiety Was Cause of Bad Shots.
?d at the poor showing made by the
South Carolina rifle team, Adjt. Gen.
vV. W. Moore returned to his office
from the recent rifle meet at Camp
Perry, Ohio. South Carolina's team
stood No. 36. in the list of forty-two
teams. This mark, however low, is
one point higher than the team stood
last year, coming out of that contest
Gen. Moore says that he is now
fully decided to employ an expert
rifle coach for the team next year,
'if such an expert can be had at a
price within the funds at the dis
posal of the department. This coach
ls to take charge of the rifle work
of the team, picked from the South
Carolina regiments, during the two
or three months devoted to practice
before going to Camp Perry.
Not entirely, or even In a large
part, to poor r arkmanshlp, does
Gen. Moore attribute the score made
by the South Carolina team. In look
ing over the Individual records made
by the members of the team from
this state, many good shots were
found who had made only a poor
showing in the national shoot. "I
attribute the defeat of the South
Carolina boys more to over anxiety
than to anything else," said Gen.
Moore. "None of them shot as well
as they have done at home. If they
had repeated the records made by
them during practice they would
probably have taken off the Class C
Gen. Moore says he ! ; fully con
vinced that there is need for an ex
pert coach for the rifle ?.earn during
the months of practice preceding
the national shoot,, and he repeated
his determination to secure one '
