For weeks the decorators, float
builders, social organizations and
business interests of the Capital
City have been preparing for the cel
ebration which, it is said, will eclipse
anything of its kind ever held in the
Sou tn, not. excepting (ho famous
New Orleans Mardi Gras. More than
$35,000 ls being spent in various
amusement features planned for the
week; $10.000 has been spent, in Ut

Stale Fair Grounds, where the Auto

and the crowning of the Palmafesta
Queen will be held.
With tho "primary elections" for
Queen candidates closed, and the

interest now centers on the selection
of the Queen of all the State beauties
-the most attractive and popular
young woman in the State. This se
lection will be made in Columbia
during Palmafesta, each admission
ticket to the fair grounds entitling
tho holder to ono vote for Queen.
The 45 candidates will be Introduced
to the audience dally from the stage
of the Fashion Review Auditorium,
so that a personal selection may be
made. Voting for tho Queen will

CORRECTION OF STATEMENT.
E. I<. Hcrndon, Esq., Points Out
Wherein Wo Were in Error.
Walhalla, S. C., Mar. 19, 1921.
Editor Keowee Courier:
My attention has been called to a
local in last week's Issue of The Keo
wee Courier, as follows:
"Last Saturday afternoon, after
the inquest before the coroner was
completed, Mrs. Della Cantrell, who
was before the Jury on an invstlga
tion in regard to the Anding of the
body of a dead child, which Mrs.
! Cantrell wa? alleged to have dis
posed of by throwing into a swampy
place a short distance from the high
way while on an automobile drive,
and which was admitted by her, she
was released from custody, the Jury
being unable to find any evidence
tending to show that the child was
alive when born. The case attracted
considerable interest locally."
Tho facts stated in this local are
grossly erroneous, unjust ^to Mrs.
Cantrell, and dangerous.
1. Mrs. Cantrell never nt any timo
appeared before the coroner.
2. Mrs. Cantrell never at any
time made any admission as stated
in this local.
3. No witness who testified bofore
the coroner's Jury testified that Mrs.
Cantrell made any such admission.
I represented Mrs. Cantrell as at
torney from the beginning to tho end
of this matter, and I ask that you
mako this correction in justice to
her." Yours very truly,
E. L. Ilorndon.

"My Dear Sir: lt ls noted the de
partment has ignored my recent re
quest for rolnstaten.nt to my work,
on the Bolton and Walhalla R. P. O.
This matter of ignoring important,
matters is tho cause of my disagree
ment with the postal officials. I
struggled along under all manner or
difficulties during tho war and have
been publicly insulted by the de
partment, salary was kept so low
that I scarcely met living expenses,,
car was operated over tho most un
safe road In the country, between,
steel passenger coaches and the en
gine. After this had been done over
six months I stated the department
had ignored my reports, as the mat
ter had the special attention of the
chief clerk on the second day of Ita
operation, and I had made the sit
uation a matter of special attention.
For this statement I was charged?
f>00 minus points for making a false
statement. Your records will show*
the statement was correct. This 1?
only a few of the false and unfound
ed charges placed against me. Your
department has ignored all my just;
grievances and removed me under*
false charges. This has been dene
for political reasons, because I was
not a jolly-fish and failed to bow
down to unjust and false newspaper
criticism. Tho penalty was removal,,
but I am now so situated that I have*
tho opportunity of cornering the?

Americanism and a Republican ma
