THE AVA DD STREET DISASTER.
No Real Clue as Yet to Identity of
Fiend Responsible for Explosion.
Elsewhere in this issue will bo
found an account of the fearful ex
plosion thal occurred last week in
Wall street, New York city. Later
information from New York gives
the death Hst as 35 instead of 12 or
14 as at llrst reported. Hundreds of
people were more or less seriously
Edwin P. Fischer, a lawyer and a
former employee of the French High
Commission, waa arrested, but
after eight hours of continuous ques
tioning, was released from custody.
Fischer ls of a cranky tendency and
had sent wai nings to certain parties
indicating that an explosion would
take place In Wall street at almost
the identical moment that tho fatal
Alexander Brailovsky, a Russian
Journalist, was also arrested In con
nection with the explosion, but has
given sufficient account of himself
to warrant his release also.
The authorities seem certain that
tho explosion is the result of a plot,
but have been unable so far to con
nect anybody directly with it.

to capacity, 45 per cent of the load is on the front wheels. No other
truck is so evenly balanced.

OCONEE COTTON DAV LARGELY
Attended, and Proved to bo an Occa
sion of Interest and Knthulasm.
"Cotton Day" was enthusiastically |
observed in Walhalla last Monday.
A large crowd of farmers and busi
ness men of allp arts of thc county
assembled In the Court Mouse at 11
o'clock a. m. The meeting was called
to order by J. P. Stribling, chairman
of the Oconee Cotton Association. The
following topics were taken up in
their order and ably discussed:
1. Plans for holding the cotton of
the county until fair and Just prices
can be obtained, together with plans
for co-operative marketing.
2. Plans for fully utilizing ware
houses and warehouse facilities of
the county, and for erecting addi
tional warehouses, with special em
phasis on practical plans for financ
ing the crop.
3. Plans for immediately increas
ing the acreage in fall-sown small '
grain and winter cover crops.
It was decided unanimously, by a
rising vote, that the colton growers
present would store their cotton in
warehouses if same could bo provi
ded for them, until suitable prices
should bo obtained.
A largo number of those present
also pledged themselves by vote to
contribute to the building of ware
houses in their communities If called
The county chairman and secre
tary were, on motion, authorized and
directed to appoint committees of
titree In each section of the county

This wns by far tho best mooting
of the Oconee Cotton Association
ever held. Tho Court IIouso was
filled with a representative crowd of
earnest men, and the meeting was
characterized by less "hot air" and
more action than at any time previ
It ls a matter of no small signifi
cance when, at such a busy season,
the farmers turn out in such num
bers to a meeting of this sort, and it
ls but another proof of the associa
tion slogan *hat
"ORGANIZATION WILL WIN."

TH M COUNTY POLITICAL l ICD).
Olllcial Declaration of Hes ult s l.s De
layed by Cont est? ami Protests,
On tho Hixth page tins week we
print tho tabulation of tho results in
the second primnry of Sept. 14th.
This table contains the correct, fig
ures showing the votes cast in tho
second primary, but it does not carry
with the official declaration, nor ls
lt the official tabulation. It ls simply
a correct statement of the votes cast
at the various precincts in Oconeo
for the sevoral candidates.
Protost? Have Hoon Filed.
A protest has been flied by certain
citizens of Westminster against the
counting of any of tho votes cast at
that club, for tho roason that tho
number was written on oach ballot
cast that corresponded with tho num
ber printed upon tho stub of tho
ticket. Hence tho number on tho poll
list, the stub and ticket was identi
cal. This, it is contended, ls illegal,
as it tends to dostroy the secrecy of
There aro other citizens who con
tend that tito voting at tho Westmin
ster box was conducted in strict ob
servance of all rules and tho law,
and that all the other precincts in
the county where the Australian bal
lot systom was used were irrogular
In the conduct of the olectlon In that
tho ballots wore not officially marked
by the managers, and that all stich
ballots should not be counted.
Tho question has largely arisen
out o' what ls contemplated by tho
words "stamping tho ballots." It Is
understood that all protests that havo
been flied are neither in the interest
of nor against any candidate, but In
tho interest solely of a strict observ
ance o? the rules and the law govern
ing tho conduct of tho election.
County Committee to Hear Matter.
The County Executive Committee
will meet Thursday of this week (to
morrow) at 10 o'clock a. m. and will
thresh out 3 entire matter so far
as it is con erned. It is presumed
that tho ruling of tho Executive Com
mittee will bo accepted ar final In
tho promises, but still, should olthor
party to tho controversy not bo sat
isfied, tho right will bo accorded to
appeal to tho State Exccutivo Com
mittee for a final ruling and con
struction of tho rules and tho law in
volved by tho questions raised.
