? New York, June 22: Twenty-four
companies manufacturing manila
wrapping paper were lined $1,000
each by Judge Hough in the United
States circuit court today. They plead
guilty Friday to maintaining an illegal
combination in restraint of trade.
They were members of the Manila
and Fibre association. In imposing
the fines the judge said the combination
of paper manufacturers was a
clear violation of the Sherman antitrust
law, but because of extenuating
circumstances he would impose a tine
only. The case against the companies
was instituted through the instrumentality

? New York, June 20: Although
the steamship Mauretania, which arrived
yesterday from Liverpool
brought with her $40,000,000 in
bonds and securities, one of the largest
single shipments that ever crossed
the Atlantic, the attendant proceedings
were so secret that the fact
did not become known until today.
Whether these valuable documents
have been sent to America for investment,
or whether they have been
withdrawn by Americans from English
investments, could not be learned.
The precious shipment was carefully
guarded on its trip across the Atlantic
and was moved after reaching New
York under the supervision of twelve
armed detectives. It came from the
banking house of Speyer Brothers, of
London, and was consigned to Ladenburg,
Thalman & Co., of Xo. 25
Broad street, although the real consignee
is said to be Henry Heymann.
? Charlotte, X. C., June 21: The
jury in the Rockingham county superior
court, which has been sitting
in the case of C. M. Hillings, a preacher,
against the Charlotte Observer, today
rendered a verdict to the effect
that the charges of immorality preferred
against the preacher by the
newspaper while the former was a
resident of Biackville, S. C., were
true and the suit for damages would
not lie. The reference in the newspaper's
article to similar conduct at
Waynesville, X. C., was deemed untrue
and the jury awarded the plaintiff
damages in the sum of $5,000.
Judge Ward promptly set that part of
the verdict aside, granting a new trial.
The verdict' means that The Observer
has won a great victory, for it is quite
certain that the matter will never
come to trial again. The action for
libel was based on a story printed by
The Observer under a Biackville date
line, in which it was set forth that the
preacher had written endearing epistles
to a mulatto servant girl, formerly
employed in his household, the
matter causing a sensational scandal
in Biackville. The original letters
were produced at the trial and proved
upon the plaintiff, the evidence all
through being sensational in the extreme.

? Hammondsport. N. Y.. June 21:
Three successful tlights, one of which
is said to be the longest ever made in
public by a flying machine in America.
were accomplished today by the
new aerodrome No. 3. known as the
Curtiss "June Bug." which made its
maiden ascent under the auspices of
the Aerial Experiment association. The
aerodrome, in its last flight of the day.
rose smartly from the ground and
flew a distance of 1,266 feet, at the
rate of 36J miles an hour. The flight
was regarded as a particularly sueftil
feat of aviation. The initial performance
of the latest flying machine.
designed by G. H. Curtiss. was witnessed
by Dr. Graham Rell and either
members of the association. Weather
conditions were propitious for a flight
today and with the new machine
carefully tested and groomed for its
first flight there was much expectancy
among the spectators when Designer
Curtiss, who acted as navigator, made
ready for the ascent. There was a
rousing cheer as the aerodrome rose
into the ail- and covered 4."6 feet before
descending. tt was calculated
that the flying machine covered the
distance at the rate of 28 miles an
hour. A superficial examination of
the aerodrome disclosed that the trial
had not developed any structural weakness
and Mr. Curtiss prepared for a
second ascent. 'In the second flight
the aerodrome covered 417 feet at the
rate of 32J miles an hour. The final
trial of the day showed the aerodrome
to its best advantage, the machine
covering 1.226 feet before descending.
? Houston. Texas. June 22: Nine
negroes met death last night at the
hands of a mob in the vicinity of
Hemphill, in Sabine county. Today
both races secured arms and the tension
is such tonight that a race clash
appears imminent. The dead are:
Jerry Evans, aged 22: Will Johnson,
aged 24: Mose Spellman. aged 24:
Cleveland Williams, aged 27: William
Manuel, aged 2r.; Frank Williams.
aged 22; Two unknown men,
William M'Coy. The lynching followed
the killing of two white men by
negroes. Two weeks ago Hugh Dean
and several other white men visited a
negro church and school house, where
a dance was in progress, presumably
in uuest of li?|iior. During the evening
Dean was killed and the six negroes
were held for the killing. At
the preliminary examination the evidence
tended to show that the plot
was formed at the dance to kill Dean.
Saturday night last. Aaron M. Johnson.
a prominent farmer, was assassinated
while seated at the dining table
with his wife and child, the bullet

arrested and. it is stated, confessed,
implicating Robert Wright, a relative
of one of the negroes held for Dean's
murder. Price declared he was offered

the forming of the mob last night,
the overpowering of the jailer at
Hemphill and the lynching of the six
negroes held for murder of Dean. Five
were hanged to the same tree while
another attempted to escape and was
shot to death. Later in the night
William McCoy, another negro, was
shot and killed while standing in the
gate of the Johnson home and this
morning the bodies of two more negroes
were found in the creek bottom.
Wright, the negro who confessed to
the killing of Johnson, and the man

YORKVILLE. S. C.:
TUESDAY, JUNE 23, 1908.
The Democratic national convention
meets at Denver, Colorado on JUiy i,
for the purpose of confirming the nomination
of Hon. Win. J. Bryan for the
It is just as well not to forget that
Hon. Win. J. Bryan is an abler, broader
and more experienced man than when
he was first nominated in 1896. He is
not nearly so radical now as he was
The effort of Mr. Martin to make
capital against Mr. Evans because the
latter's wife is a native of New England
does not appeal to us. On the
contrary it strikes us as extremely absurd.
There may be voters who would
be intluenced by such a consideration;
but one of the solemn duties of any
candidate is to try to lift such voters
| to a higher plane.
At the Charleston meeting last Saturday,
Mr. Blease did not fail to advise
j the Charleston tigers that he is more
friendly to them than is Governor Ansel.
He made capital of the governor's
injunction proceedings. He made
quite a hit with the liquor people and
there is reason to expect that he will
get the backing of this element
throughout the state.
TllEKE has been some doubt about
Mr. Bryan dn the negro question; but
the New York World has quoted from
a recent speech that makes the matter
clear. The speech was delivered in
Cooper Union, New York and the quotation
is as follows:
"But that is only calling your attention
to the fact that the man who
asked the question?if he is a black
man voting the Republican ticket or
a white Republican, he can not in justice
ask it. But I will answer it franklir
on/1 toll foil thr, UfhitO TYlfin in
the south puts on that qualification as
a matter of self-protection and that
there is not a Republican community
in the north that would not put it on
when necessary. The man who says
that the people of the north have any
different idea of this subject from the
people of the south is lacking in frankness
with himself or he assumes what
would not be true. The white race in
the north and in the south will not
permit a few men to take the solid
black vote and use it as personal property
for the making of money regardless
of the welfare of the community,
and that was done in the south. The
south is giving the black man better
law than the black man would give the
white man in the south if the black
man made the law."
Jt'ST what the facts are we do not
know; but the indications are that
Governor Ansel intends to stay away
from most of the campaign meetings
and leave the canvass to Mr. Blease.
We hope this is not the governor's
purpose. Mr. Blease is a smooth and
plausible speaker. His liquor platform
is one that appeals to a great many people,
and his stand for biennial sessions
will also get votes going and coming,
notwithstanding the fact that the people
have been cheated out of the
amendment that they voted to the constitution
along this line. The old dispensary
party is not without very
great influence in the state, and its
power is not to be ignored. We think
Governor Ansel is entitled to a second
term, not merely because he has had
a first term; but because he is an able
and efficient executive. But Mr. Blease
is a much more dangerous opponent
than lie gets general credit for being,
and we hope that Governor Ansel will
try to meet him on as many stumps
as possible. It may be that the people
can be depended upon to look after the
right; but indifference on the part of
those who are naturally to be looked
to as leaders, is always dangerous.
I.N his charge to the itancaster grand
jury recently, Judge Gage made a
strong plea for the enforcement of the
law against murder. Such pleas are
timely and proper. With all earnestness,
we state as a fact that there is
as little respect for the law against
murder as for any other law on the
statute book not even excepting the
law against liquor selling. It is generally
felt that there is no penalty on
murder except conscience ajid lawyers'
fees. Where a man has plenty of
money and no conscience he is subject
to very little restraint. People talk
as if the laws against murder should
be enforced; but their good intentions
generally end there. The rule in a
murder ease h> to pick the softest and
most chicken-hearted jurors to be
found on a venire and then go in for
an appeal to maudlin sentiment. The
idea of justice as between the murderer
aud his victim is lost sight of, and
it seldom happens that there is a man
on the jury who has the courage to do
his plain duty. The adequate punishment
of a few murderers would change
all this aJmost instantly; but really it
looks as if the ease is almost hopeless.
Maybe the country would have been
willing to have nominated Mr. Roosevelt
if he had really sought a second
nomination. We are not willing to
concede this. We must not forget that
tlie president may be justly accused
of having used gum shoe tactics in connr'ctHin
with th?- ivhnlp matter. When
he declared on the eve of hist first
election that he would not again be a
candidate, he disarmed opposition to a
very considerable degree. Those of
his own party who would have tried to
move the earth to defeat him had but
little, incentive to such effort. There
was an element of uncertainty all
along; but it was not sutlicient to warrant
a great deal of effort. There was
a tremendous amount of made to order
enthusiasm in the convention it is
true; but the idea that those hardened
politicians could have been stampeded
into doing anything other than what
they were sent there to do is absurd
enough to force a smile from a wooden
Indian. That Mr. Taft is an able and
good man we shall not try to deny In
the absence of a great deal more proof
than we now have on the subject; but
he stands for a great deal that Mr.
Roosevelt stood for and will Inherit
most of Mr. Roosevelt's enemies; but
that is not all there is to it. Just as
hundreds of thousands of good Republican
Americans would have balked at
giving Mr. Roosevelt what would have
looked so much like a third term, they
will probably balk no less at the idea
of allowing him to name his successor.
And they should do so.
Use Your Judgment.
The biennial campaign for the various
political offices Is on, and we desire
to take occasion at this time, before
the clouds have begun to gather,
to offer a few words of counsel that
can be considered better now than later.
The essence of popular government
is the will of the majority. Every citizen
is supposed to vote for the men
or principles which come nearest to
meeting his judgment of what is right,
and after all have expressed themselves
the result is supposed to be their com
It is a fact that in our citizenship
there are thousands of men who have
the right to vote; but who would be
utterly unfit to hold any kind of an office.
either administrative or judicial.
Most of this unfitness comes from ignorance,
viciousness and inexperience;
but not a little of it comes from the
other extreme, over education and ultra
refinement, coupled with a lack of
common sense and ability to properly
appreciate the composite capacity and
needs of people to be served.
The casting of an intelligent vote,
therefore, is an act that calls for the
most careful consideration and the utmost
good sense. And the people who
arrogate to themselves the right to tell
other people how to vote are as often
as otherwise, as badly in need of assistance
as are the people they would
The safest thing is for every man to
follow his own best judgment. Let
him be honest with himself in his decision
and he will not likely be very
unjust to his fellowman.
But the one thing to be guarded
against most is the self-seeking,
sneaking fellow who seeks to influence
votes by telling "in confidence" all
manner of Inventions that they would
not dare give public express' 1 to. This
is a factor inseparable from every election,
and it results in the deception
and deflection of many an honest vote
from honest men standing for honest
The safest guide to him who would
do the right thing in casting a vote is
to seek not merely professed honesty
and decency; but real honesty and decency.
As to what is the best guide
along this line, it is hardly worth
while to explain?not in this country

THE LANCASTER CASE.
Interesting Observations on Recent
There seems to have * been some
monumental swearing done in the
Welsh trial in Lancaster. Several witnesses.
including some ladles, swore
that when Mobley started out of the
coach Welsh jumped up from his seat
and ran down the aisle with a pistol
in his hand. Some of them made an
effort to stop him and one of the ladies
called Mobley in an effort to give
him warning. In reporting the case
further the correspondent of The State
"The defense resumed its testimony
this morning in the case of the State
vs. Grover C. Welsh by putting up the
defendant, who denied having his pis-]
tol in his hand when he followed the
deceased down the aisle of the car or
that he went out of a natural walk.
He said he left his seat not knowing
that Mobley was ahead of him; that
when he got within two or three steps
of Mobley, Mobley turned around and
presented his pistol at him, which he
knocked up with his left hand, at the
same time grabbing Mobley by the
lapel of his coat. He jerked Mobley
around and fired three shots in quick
succession in the back of his head, and
that he did this to save his life,
"The State replied by putting up Mr.
L. E. Cauthen and Mrs. L. E. Cauthen,
Mr. Jeffreys and Frank W. Hunter,
who testified that they heard the
Misses Hell, two of defendant's witnesses,
say shortly after the homicide
that they did not know why Welsh
ran down the car with his pistol,
these young ladies having stated in
their testimony for defendant that
Welsh had no pistol when he ran
down the car. John S. Riddle, in reply.
testified for the defense that he
was on the train with the Misses Bell
at the time Hunter and Jeffreys referred
to and did not hear the young ladies
make the statement."
There is nothing in the testimony of
the other witnesses to indicate who of
them were swearing falsehoods; some
of them must have been doing so
knowingly. As to the reasonableness
of Welsh's testimony, however, the intelligent
reader can form some opinion.
According to his statement, he
had no pistol in his hand, Mobley had
his pistol leveled on him while he was
two or three steps away, yet Mobley
did not shoot but allowed him to approach.
knock up his pistol, catch his
coat, turn him around, get out his
pistol and shoot him three times in
the back of the head. One can almost
see Mobley standing through all
this proceeding as if he were in a
clothing store being fitted with a coat.
And yet Welsh shot to save his own
life? Some of the witnesses, we believe.
testified that Mobley's pistol
showed that one cartridge had been
recently fired and the mark of a bullet
was found in the top of the car.
which indicated that he fired after he
fell. Perhaps the theory is that the
shot was fired when the pistol was
knocked up, but it does not explain
why Mobley did not shoot sooner and
why he did not shoot again while
Welsh was arranging him in position
to he shot in the back. If Welsh had
just thought to fire away without taking
trouble to turn him around, his
defense would have made a better
story. Hut he is not the first man who

One day last week he bought the

country that unless they pay the premiums

battleground, Gastonia, Lincolnton
and Newton. It was his first trip
back after an absence of fifty-three

to include this place in his itinerary.
There is quite a bunch of candidates
out for supervisor, and it gives us
pleasure to say that they are all good,
clean, competent men. There is very
little danger that the voters will make
a serious mistake. The office of county
commissioner is now fully as important
as that of supervisor. It is
one of the best paid offices in the county
in proportion to the amount of work
required and the two commissioners
together have more power and author
ity than the supervisor himself. The
supervisor and one commissioner or
the two commissioners can dominate
the board. It Is just as essential,
therefore to have able and efficient
commissioners as it Is to have.an able
and efficient supervisor. It Is to be
hoped that the voters will have as
good a bunch of candidates for commissioner
to select from as they have

The cotton market was easier today
and while the close was steady in
j tone, last prices showed a net loss of
16 to 28 points. Sales were estimated
at 150,000 bales.
The market opened barely steady at
a net decline of 3 to 9 points in re-J
sponse to lower cables, favorable
weather over the week end, bearish
crop accounts, and unfavorable trade
advices from the continent. There
was some little irregularity during the
early session but the general tendency |
of the market was downward and the
lowest points were reached in the late
trading with the close only a shade up
from the lowest on the new crop
months and at bottom figures on near
positions which ruled relatively weak
all day. Next Friday will be the first
of July notice day in the local market,
and part of the selling of that position
today was supposed to reflect liouidation
by trailing longs to avoid
deliveries. Crop advices from points
east of the Mississippi were generally
favorable and the scattering showers
reported over Sunday were thought
to be oeneficial particularly in southern
Texas. Southern spot markets reported
early were steady to firm at
unchanged prices. Local traders are

AT THE MONUMENT.
Mr. E. W. Pursley, of the firm of
.CUrSIuy OC .TfcUls, Uic won rwuvs ?> 11 oa?i
mill located near King's Mountain battleground
was in Yorkville yesterday,
and gave The Enquirer some additional
information about the work on the
proposed new monument and the surroundings
The contractor, as stated, Is the
Southern Marble and Granite company
of Spartanburg, and the work is to be
in charge of Mr. R. W. Dogen.
Most of last week was devoted to
the erection of shacks for the laborers,
and there was some excavation work
for the foundation of the monument.
The excavation is to be twenty-four
feet square and four feet three inches
deep. It is mostly in slate and will
probably be completed during the
In addition to the shacks for laborers
the contractors have let a contract for
a small temporary hotel building, about
sixteen by forty feet, to accommodate
the professional employes and skilled
laborers as well as such visitors as may
desire over night accommodations.
This building is to be cheap and rough
but substantial enough to answer the
purpose. There will also be a commissary
at which the public may find refreshments.
The shell of the monument is to be
constructed of dressed granite, and the
core is to be brick and lime mortar
or cement. The granite is to be quarried
at Granite Falls, N. C., dressed in
Spartanburg, and delivered by rail to
Grover, N. C., from which place it will
be hauled to the grounds in wagons,
pulled by a traction engine. Mr. J. B.
Martin has the contract to do the hauling.
The battleground was last given a
thorough clearing up in 1881. At that
time practically all of the underbrush
was cleaned away with the exception of
a few original forest trees that stood
near the spot where Ferguson fell,
and which were probably there when
the battle was fought. The late T. G.
Culp cleaned out anew a small space
immediately around the monument
while he was supervisor of York county.
But since the original clearing and
and cleaning given by Mr. Culp, the
timber has come again, and almost the
entire mountain is covered with a
scrubby undergrowth from 2 to 6 inches
in diameter. The contractors who are
building the new monument will only
do as much clearing as may be necessary
to facilitate their work.
Mr. Pursley who is thoroughly familiar
with the entire surroundings as
well as the history of the battle, is
more or less disturbed on account of
the vandalism of souvenir fiends. He
says that it is a common thing for
these people to bring hammers and
chisels for the purpose of chipping off
pieces of the monument. The old soapstone
monument has been beaten and
disfigured until it is almost impossible
to read any part of any inscription on
it, and the new monument erected in
1880 has been badly disfigured.
Now that the work of erecting the
new monument is in progress, interest
in the battleground and surroundings
will be renewed, and the number of
visitors to this historic spot will increase

Molly Brown, Messrs. T. J. Thomasson,
Jesse Parrott, Walter McClain, A. J.

two last named did not suffer so severely
as the others, being located on
the outskirts of the heaviest portion
of the storm. The hall fell on a much
larger territory, of course; but it was
lighter outside of the area designated.
Over the spot where the storm was

as hickorynuts. Cotton was topped and
stripped and corn blades were literally

? Hot Springs. Va.. June 19: At
today's session of the Virginia Bankers'
association. Martin W. Littleton,
of New York, the principal speaker,
addressed the convention for nearly
two hours, his remarks being greeted
with enthusiastic approval. He said
the state and Federal governments
for a great many years did everything
they could to encourage men who had
money and nerve in the development
of the country, including mining, railroading
and banking. The Federal
government gave those who built factories
a tag. so they might be able to
sell their goods higher and keep them
up. Both Federal and state governments
gave part of their public domain
to railroads. Altogether this patron
government of ours said Mr. Littleton.
was a very indulgent and friendly
parent to all of us. Of course people
grew very wealthy, and people began
to ask where and how they got
it. Suddenly the government, both
state and national, swept down on
them and began a crusade in which
every man who had been a captain of
industry, was suddenly a crook, and
every man who had been regarded as
an adventurer anxious to develop the
country was put under suspicion.
Neither the national or state government
should ever undertake to hurt
or help any particular industry.
The government ought to keep its
hands off. being neither friendly nor
unfriendly, and allow the Individual
and his enterprise to work out the
industrial destiny of this country.
Friendly paternalism, as long as it
remains friendly, seems a great blessing.
but when it becomes hostile it
seems to be a great curse. This government
ought to be held so high
above class interest that it could not
hear the cry of the lawless mob nor
the appeal of those already fat with
IN FULL RETREAT.
Democratic Leader Shows What Republicans
Under the caption "In Full Retreat."
the Hon. William J. Bryan
discusses the recent Republican convention
in this week's Commoner as
The Republicans who attended the
national convention as spectators and
joined in the demonstration in favor
of President Roosevelt and Senator
I.a Follette, must have felt indignant
as they watched the panic-stricken
delegates running over each other in
their effort to get away from the La
Follette reforms, some of which had
been endorsed by the president himself.
Congressman Cooper, of Wisconsin,
representing the La Follette
men, brought in a minority report
signed by himself alone. Fifty-two
members of the committee signed the
majority report and one signed the
IIIIIIWi I ijr < pui v.
The Republican party will find the
ratio of 52 to 1 a very embarrassing
one to deal with in the coming campaign.
Mr. Cooper's report contained
a declaration in favor of publicity as
to campaign funds. It was lost by a
vote of 880 to 94. more than 9 to 1,
and yet the president had been advocating
legislation in favor of publicity
as to campaign contributions and
Secretary Taft wrote a letter to Mr.
Burrows advocating the passage of a
publicity bill. How fortunate it was
that Secretary Taft's letter was finally
discovered and published, Senator
Burrows, the man to whom Taft's letter
was addressed, was the temporary
chairman of the convention and the
convention over which he presided
turned down the publicity plank by a
vote of nine to one; who will deny that,
on this subject, the Republican party
Another plank of the La Follette
platform authorized the ascertaining
of the value of the railroads. This
plank was lost by a vote of 917 to 66,
nearly lf? to 1, and yet President
Roosevelt had advocated this very
proposition. Here is a retreat on the
In another column reference is
made to the injunction plank. The
injunction plank adopted by the Republican
convention is a retreat from
the position taken by the president
and from the position taken by Secretary
Taft in his speeches, although
neither of them went as far as they
ought to have gone in their effort to
prevent what is known as "government
by injunction." Here Is the
The president has advocated the Income
tax as a means of preventing
swollen fortunes and of equalizing the
burdens of government. The Republican
platform is silent on the subject.
Was the president right in the position
he took? If so then the convention
was wrong in not endorsing him.
Will the Republican voters follow the
president in this just demand or will
they follow the KepuDiican organization
in retreating from it?
The president advocated an Inheritance
tax but the Republican convention
Is silent on that subject. Was the
president ahead of the Republican
party in advocating this reform or has
the Republican party receded from
the president's position? Did the president
give a false alarm on this question
or has the party sounded a retreat?
In the president's message to congress
last spring he presented an indictment
against the conspiracy formed
among the great lawbreakers to
prevent the enforcement of the laws
and to evade the punishment provided
by law. The platform adopted by
the Republican convention contains
no intimation of danger. If there
are any conspiracies, the convention
did not see them; if there are any
combinations it had not heard of
them; if there are any dangers, they
are unconscious of them. Was the
president mistaken when he issued
his defiance, or are the Republican
managers deceived when they think
than an aroused public will calmly
contemplate the encroachments of
predatory wealth? This is retreat
The convention by vote of 866 to
114?more than seven to one?voted
down the plank in favor of the popular
election of United States senator.
It is true that the president and Secretary
Taft have never advocated the
popular election of senators. They
seem to take the Hamiltonian rather
than tlje Jeffersonlan view, but the most
popular reform in the United States
today is the reform that has for its
object the election of United States
senators by direct vote. It has five
times been endorsed by the national
house of representatives?three times
when the house of representatives was
Republican. It has been endorsed by
nearlv two-thirds of the states of the
Union and there Is probably not a
state in the Union In which it would
not be endorsed as a popular election
and yet in spite of the record made in
the houses and by the various states,
this reform is rejected by a-7 to 1
vote in a Republican convention.
Here are seven propositions upon
which the Republican party. In national
convention assembled, has retreated
from the position taken by
that party in congress or from the position
taken by the president. What
have Roosevelt Republicans to say?
The president has awakened a spirit
of reform within his party, he has at
least revealed to the world that there
are reformers in the Republican party.
Can that spirit now be quelled by
a stand-pat convention? Millions of
Republicans have enlisted at the president's
call to arms and are ready to
march forward; will they furl their
banners and turn back merely because
the president acquiesces in the
sounding of a retreat.
