WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15, 1905.
Anderson real estate is v.nhancing
in value every day; and Anderson ia
growing more rapidly than any other
city in the Slate in proportion to size.
Lots of hard things have been said
about the Democratic party recently,
but this thing of accusing President
Roosevelt of being a Democrat is just
about the limit.
The people of South Carolina are
greatly pleased with President Roose
velt's action in giving thc name of
their beloved State to one of the great
battleships now being built at a cost
It is claimed that many Japanese
women disguised as meu are in thc
ranks of the Japanese army. That
accounts for the fierco fighting of the
Japs. The Russians ?houldd send a
regiment of mice against them.

The South is not inclined to inter
pose any objection to the appointment
hy President Roosevelt of a negro to
the office of internal revenue colloot?r
of the district of New York. It is
time for a little geographical rotation.
The Supreme Court of tho United
States has settled the vexed question
whether a town or city has the right
to enforce compulsory vaccination,
the decision being that it has.
The case went up from Massachu
The question ?B not, will tho far
mers continue to hold their cotton,
hut will they plant 25 per cent, less
cotton this spring? Let this neces

friend of Southern prosperity.
The capitation tax on dogs will
yield to the State this year a revenue
of about $35,0(10, and under the law
this sum will be expended for sohool
purposes in the several counties in
which it is collected. The number

of $1,427.50. The proverbial yellow

creature after all. He is now doing

Dudley Hoghes, president of the
Qeorgia Agricultural Society, sets a
good cotton reducing example. Ho
owns several thousand acres ox land
and his tenants run nearly two hun
dred plows. LaBt year they planted
twenty-five aores ta tho plow. Re
cently he offered tba?, if they would
out down their ootton crops to fifteen
acres to tho plow and reduce one-half
the quantity of fertilizers used he
would take corn, pea's, fodder, oats,
cane or any other farm produot in
, payment of rent at market pri?es.
And every one of his renters gladly
acoepted his proposition.
The sales of fertilizers appear to be
increasing. In the first eipht days of
March the State Treasurer in Colum
ns, bia received over $17,000 from tag tax
\ against $7,(500 last year. This shows
j an increase of nearly $1,000 a day.
For the months of January and Febru
I ary there had been a marked falling
off, and now it is probablo that the
[ month of March will nearly offset tho
j difference of $33,000 between the
months of January and February of
j last year and the same months of this
year. Indeed it is quite \ r jbable that
Clemson College will receive royal
ties nearly as heavy this as last year,
when the total reached $118,000.

Two white men in Darlington Coun
ty have been convicted of murder'
under circumstances whioh will give
encouragement to all citizens of the
State who want to see the law strict
ly and justly administered. These
white men were found guilty of the
wilful and unprovoked murder of an
unoffending negro. The death sen
tence has been passed upon one; the
other will serve a life sentence in the
penitentiary. It is a significant vic
tory for thc law when twelve men can
calmly view the facts and waiviog
aside all prejudice reach a verdiot that
meets the ends of justice and that
will do much to inspire a greater re*
spect for thc law. Thc , uign of oriroe,
? while not mora alarming than in other
States, means that there is something
wrong in the commonwealth. The
. fault lies not in a worse condition of
public morale than formerly obtained,
but in the failure of men to pass upon
the crimes o? their fellow men and
mete out to them the justice that is

While Gen. Kuropatkin lias appar
ently succeeded in Having more ot Iiis
artillery than seemed possible, li ia
lOBoes in men, ammunition and com
missaiiat supplies in tho battle of
Mukden nro far greater than earlier
reports indicated, and even that por
tion ot* his army wu ir li he succeeded in
extricating from tm^pohitions around
.Mukden ir, : in serious danger.
Tho Japanese generals, realizing
that with a little moro speed they
could have inflicted a crushing def eat
on the Russian army utter the hattie of
Liao Vang, determined not to again
allow an opportunity to pass and aro
following at ter the defeated und sorely
tried Kunian army. While u small
portion ot K uinput kin'H army lias
reached Tie Pass, tho greater part of
thone wiio escaped from tho battle of
Mukden aro ?till struggling north
ward, being at last accounts between
twelve and sixteen reileB from their
goal, with tho Japanese, iluBhed with
victory ami leinforced by fresh men,
harassing them from all sides. Even
should the remnant of tho army reach
Tie Pass, it is hardly possible for it to
make a stand there against tho over
whelming forco opposing it, especially
as tho Russians must bo worn out and
weakened by the loss of men, gima
and ammunition. It is moro likely
that Kuropatkin will fall right back
to Harbin with what he can uave, and
wnit there for the reinforcements that
St. Petersburg already bas promised
him. A possible obstacle to the plan
is Gen. Kawamura's aruiy, which has
not yet been located and which may
also bo heading for the northern capi
Gen. Kuropatkin admita that 1,100
officers and 4(5,1)31 mon ar.i not respond
ing to roll calls. This is rather vague.
lt mayor may not include the thou
sands of wounded who have been
sont north, and again it may not in
clude the losses suffered by tho third
army, with which the commandur-in
cbief was not in communication for
sometime. The figurts g.Won by tie
Japanese war office appeal more rea
sonable, namely 40,000 prisoners, 2(1,600
dead left on the field and 00.000 killed
or wounded, the latter figure, of
course, including the dead found by
tho Japanese. The Russian losses,
therefore, total over 100,000 men, or
moro than one-third of tho whole ar
my. The fact that the Japanese report
the capture of only sixty guns indi
cates that Kuropatkin ut the mat mo
ment sneceeded.in sending a consider
able portion of his artillery northward
ou the railway.
The Japanese losses up to this morn
ing were reported as 41,222, not includ
ing the army which pushed north be
tween Mukden and Fushun.
Official Russia is determined to carry
on the war. and St, Peterr burg reporta
that orders have been ha ned for the
mobilization of more troops. This
may prove a difficult tm;k with the
temper of tho Russian people in its
present condition. There is still hope
io St. Petersburg that Russia can ex
haust Japan financially, and for
months there bas been talk of the
mobilization of an army on the Sibe
rian border, which would compel Ja

St. Petersburg, March 10.-The an

Government in tbe face of the over
whelming disaster Hollered bv Gen.
Kuropatkin that n fresh army would
be raised aud the war proceed, and the
buugtity attitude assumed by Japan
may ?tier all be simply a sparring for
positiuii, which is thu prelude of peace.
So lar as tue public here is concerned
peace is the only thing talked of, the
sentiment being that if diplomacy cnn
now bring the wurring powers into
negotiation peace will follow, ai any
dipluuiutiats believe that terms accept
able to both are possible on the basis
not of ordinary peace, but more in the
nature of an alliance, which would dis
tinctly define und guarantee the posi
tion of tue respective powera in tbe
lareust iu tho future, lt is certain,
however, that Russia i s yet has made
The elementa which are trying to
force the Emperor's bund declare the
Government is now in a corner from
which there is no escape without the
support of the people. There ia reason
to believe that some of the Emperor's
advisers share thia opinion and are
again advocating the bold atroke of
summoning a veritable constituent as
sembly, appealing to the patriotism of
the people and allowing them to de
cide the question of peace or war. It
is realized that this would inevitably
mean a change in the form of govern
ment; to a constitutional monarchy.
The newspapers, except the Novoe
Vremya and a few Others whose voice
is al wayo for war, speak out straight
for peace at almost any price, declar
ing that all hopes -of victory. are now
buried at Mukden.

they went to seo their sisters Miss

S. M. Littlejohn in Gu Huey, end in

ut once decided to send for th o?r father,
and in tho shortest possible time Mr.
J. J. Lipscomb was on his way to
Texas, and in eight days returned to

they landed in Gaffney, Mr. Crocker's
three daughters were at the depot, and

Darlington, March 10.-Bob Small
and John Noll, two white men who
killed a negro man uamed Frank Scott
several weeks ago, were triod to-day
in tho Griminal Court.
The case was handed to the jury at
6 o'clock nod at 7.30 P. M. to-day the
jury rendered a verdiot of guilty as to
both, with a recommendation to
morey as to Noll.
The oaso was a bad one against the
men. It will bc remembered that
these two white men met this negro
on thc highway and brutally murdered
him without provocation. The verdict
of thc jury ia considered a righteous
one and meets with general approval.
Thc prisoners wcro ably defended.
