If these horrible accidents do not
soon cease the next census will show a
decided falling oh! in population in
this country. The reports from day
ta day are horrible indeed.
The Savannah Press suggests that
if all the Southern Governors follow
thc example of the Governor of Ar
kansas any pardon criminals, provided
they will go to Massachusetts that
State may have more intimate know
ledge of the negro question.
The strike in the Augusta Cotton
Mills and;'if mills on Horse Creek on
thc South Carolina side is ended.
Every mill in the district opened up
yesterday. There is some little show
of fight by a few of the operators of
thc King mill, but even in this mill
thc strike may be considered practi

The government report sent out
last week says the cotton erop is in
promising condition generally through
out the cotton belt. Good stands of
early cotton and satisfactory germina
tion of thc late planted are indicated
except in portions of the Carolinas
aud Louisiana, with clean fields aud
healthy growth in practically all sec
tions. In Southern Texas thc crop
has made rapid advancement and
squares arc forming.
Congress has passed the naval ap
propriation bill. Chairman Foss of
the Committe on Naval Affairs in his
desire to impress upon thc members
of tho House the necessity for pass
ing the bill somewhat rudely dispell
ed a few popular delusions regarding
the American position at sea. It
would havo been, he declared, to our
everlasting shame if our fleets at
Manila and Santiago had not defeated
the Spanish squadrons, as the Ameri
can forces were the superior in ton
nage and efficiency. Because we had
whipped a little nation with a little
navy was no reason for assuming that
we could defeat all comers. This
criticism was no doubt needed in order
that too much confidence should not
be placed upon the ability of the
existing navy. Of the 138 ships
under the Stars and Stripes a ma
jority would be of little effective ser
vice in war. The increase provided
in the present bill, two battleships,
two armored cruisers and two gun
boats, is no more than might properly
he added. Without entering the
burdensome competition of European
Powers in the construction of fleets
and the maintenance of unnecessary
armaments the United States will do
well to continue the evolution of its
navy until its power and efficiency
will be equal to any probable emer
gency. This preparedness for war,
as has BO often been said, is tho best
assurance of peace. Where, in case
of emergency, volunteers can be re
lied on to create an army of whatever
size may be required warships cannot
be built in a day or a month. And,
as the war with Spain proved, the
American navy is the nation's first
line of defense and its efficiency may
avert closer hostilities.
Union Swept by a Tornado.
Union, S. C., May 35.-This place
was visited this afternoon by a terrible
tornado. The storm came from the
north and it seems there was also one
from the southwest, meeting in this
vicinity- It played havoc, four deaths
and considerable loss of property ns
thu results. The storm from the north
was preceded by n heavy rain and
what appeared to bo a dark mass about
ono hundred yards wide. It traveled
with prent speed and people barely
had time to "get in doors before the
storm was upon the town. The wing1
ot tho storm passed along Main street
and Mew several store doors open,
doing more or less damage.
Knitting Mill Hill, south of thc (own,
caught tlie lull force ot the tornado,
which blew down the school house and
two residences, converting them liter
ally into kindling wood. The occu
pants flew from one ot* the houses be
fore it went to pieces and took refuge
in another near by, but this house was
also crushed to splinters. In this
house Misses Sallie Hart and Annie
Lawson were instantly killed, Mrs.
Maxey Sims died in nn hour and her
little daughter Weva died about 0
o'clock. Maxey Sims escaped with a
broken finger. Mr. Leo Sims received
two bad cuts on tho head from falling
timbers and was internally injured.
Mr. Mabry sustained a fractured shoul
der and had his leg badly burned by n
stove falling on him, and he was inter
nally injured. His case may prove
fatal. Mrs. Lee Sims received a bad
but not fatal cut on the head. Mrs.
Mabry and her two children escaped
with slight injuries.
It took sometime to get the victims
from the debris. Every physician in
town was soon npon the scene, also
President Nicholson and Manager
Gault of Excelsior Knitting mills- and
willing hands assisted in relieving the
sufferers as much ns possible.
The news ?prend rapidly and the
hill was soon full of people from town,
anxious to render every assistance pos
sible. Everything that tho families
had was destroyed.
Jonesville reports in a telegram to
Miss Rawson, the lady who was killed,
that tho storm was fearful nt that
Since and one of her family had been
died there. Miss Lawson was dead
when the telegram an ?ved.

One of our best friends and neigh

this wide world without any Butlering
nBany one over kuew. Ho died on his
way home from Anderson with his son
in-law, .Junien Buchanan. Mr. Greene
was apparently in good health, and his
death was a great shock to his many
friends and neighbors. He never look
ed crosB, never looked like he wns in
trouble or had tho least thing to bother
him. Ile had a smile for every one,
young and old, black and white. Iola
feels she has lost a good man. His son,
John, was in Greenville, but n tele
phone told him of his devoted father's
death. Mr. Greene leaves a kind,
broken-hearted wife and one sou and
one daughter, and a host of friends and
loved ones who deeply sympathize with
the grief stricken family. Noone ever
came to Mr. Greene but what they re
ceived kind welcome; no matter who
it was nor what they wanted. They
laid Mr. Greene to rest in the Sandy
Springs Churchyard by the side of his
loved ones gone before him. Tho be

their many friends and kindred.
