In a decision handed down by thc
Supremo Court in Columbia last week
the decision given recently by Judgo
Gary which held that tho town of
Wi.msboro had the right to tax the
Western Union Telegraph Company
$35 for doing business in that town,
was sustained. The opinion is quite

The National Civil Service Commis
sion's report contradicts tho famous
saying that "few die and none resign"
in the Federal service. It shows that
out of every 1000 employees seventy
resigned voluntarily last year. That
is seven per cent, of the wholo num
ber. A similar rato of voluntary
withdrawals from the service of a
great railroad company would mean
from 1,000 to 2,000 or 3,000 changes
in a year.

The directors of the County Fair
Association are making efforts to in
crease the scope of the O aunty Fair
to be held this year and to make it a
representative index ^of Anderson's
agricultural and industrial growth.
It is the intention of those interested
in the movement to increase tho capi
tal stock of the Association and make
the Fair an annual event of impor
tance. The Fair held last fall w?s a
?necees, but owing to the limited time
the promoters had in whioh io mike
their preparations and also to the
"newness of the enterprise, the exhib
icB were veetrioted mainly to horses
nod cattle. This year the agricul
tural and industrial interests will be
y cpr cseu ted in addition to the dis
play of live stock, and with other
attractions for the pleasuro pf the
visitors the Fair will be all that one
? Duld wisb? It is well for the public
to keep, the Fair in mind, for their
hearty support is needed to make it a
?l?cese. The Chamber of Commerce
%* doing its part, the business men cf
:&ho city are ready'to extend aid, - and
i'the people of the county generally
y'ill give substantial support to the
enterer.to Anderson -will hive Oe

From advices received from every
State io the cotton belt, the organi
zation of the farmers, business men,
doctors, lawyers and others, under the
auspices of tho Southern Cotton As
sociation, ?8 very complete. There
are hut few counties now that are not
thoroughly organized. In thoHC coun
ties thc districts, heats and precincts
?.re also well organized. Thousands
and thousands of pledges have been
signed by tho farmers, white and
black alike. In many instances re
ports have been received at thc head
quarter : nf the association that promi
nent planters in the South have agreed
to plant no cotton at all this year.
Of course these aro not in large num
bers, but Huch a Hpirit on the part of
the people who have agreed to plant
no cotton at all shows thc interest
that is being taken ia thc movement.

St. Petersburg, March 25.-Tho in

The positiveness with which this is
affirmed would indicate that the Gov

formation ns to the Japanese terms,
which indicate a basis to which Uus

shrouded in mystery. Tho secret of
what bas been done and what is being

source close to the throne that pour

to admit that significance is attached

Farts, March 25.-It is Raid in quar
ters having excellent means of infor
mation that Russia's steps toward
peace have already taken a tentative
form at a private conference lield
within recent dnys atone of the small
capitals of Northern Europe. The
purpose of this appears to have been
to bring together pei son ages represent
ing: both sides, neither having creden
tials to discus formal terms of peace,
but to informally examine what each
sido expected and what tentative basis
seemed possible. The nature of this
exchauge does not warrant its Indue
considered a definite peace movement,
but it is understood to have given each
side an opportunity to judge tho views
ot! the other, and it has clearly shown
Russia's disposition towards peace.
St. Fertersburg, March 25.-Gen.
Li.ievitch continues the retirement of
the bulk of his army northward.
The general stall' declares it is cer

been compelled to relinquish the idea

A Russian correspondent warns the
St. Petersburg authorities of the dan
gers of Japanese activity in Mongolia,
Where ho says their emissaries are en

Paris, March 20.-It wnu stated in
diplomatic quarters here today that
among the conditions of peace which
Japan might usk would be that Rus
sia give a pledge to build no more war
ships for a term of years. A diplo
matic official said that such a condi
tion would be the most effective means
of assuring- Japan against Russia's car
rying out her cherished project of na -
val rearmament for tho renewal of
hostilities under better conditions than
th"?" at p?'vSi'iDv c-x??t?sg. '
It is well known that Kassia con
templates a huge plan of naval reha
bilitation. Admiral Doubasoff, the
head of the technical board of tim ad
miral ty, ('apt. Ciado, formerly chief
tactical officer under Vice Admiral
Rojestvensky, and other Russian naval
authorities recently have taken the
position that peace was desirable until
a naval reconstruct oi could bo com
?doted. This appears to have stimu
ated Japan's diplomats to consider
menus ot avoiding a peace that would
be e quivalent to no move than a truce,
dui bu; which Russia wou ld have time
to forge an effective weapon, and
therefore the intimation is now given
that limitation of Russian naval arma
ment may figure as a means of assur
ing a prolonged peace in tho Orient.
Concerning 4he veeeut preliminary
approaches towards peace, it is now
accepted in the highest diplomatic
quarters that these preliminary nego
tiations did hot occur here, although
Paris may have been the channel
through which the results were trans-*
mit ted to St. "Petersburg and to Tokio.
However, it is noticable that there has
not been the slightest reference in
French newspapers to the peace move

St. Petersburg, March 28.-The im
pression prevalent in some military*
circles that the Japanese, having re
moved tho post i bili ty of the main army
in Manchuria assuming the initiative,
will now turn their attention to the
next objective of the war, Vladivos
tok, is strengthened by the Associated
Press dispatch from Gunsbu pass an
nouncing tire withdrawal of the Japan
ese from the immediate front of the
Russian army for a distance ot 85 miles
south. It is realized, of course, that
this may be merely a blind to cover
Hanking operations; but it ia not im
pi ob a bio that the Japanese, having
cleared southern Manchuria of Rus
sian troops and secured a position
from whence expulsion would be a
long- and difficult process, may bo
satisfied to hold tho Tie Pass line

While tlie voice of the emperor's ad
visers is for peace if honorable tarais
are obtainable, the government, aa ia
the part of wisdom, is going forward
with all provisions for the continuance
ot' the war. Preparations are reported
to bo making for the mobilization of
five corps, lt has been understood
that the guards would be retained at
St. Petersburg, but some of the offi
cers of this crack organization be
lieve their services have been requisi
tioned and are making preparations
to that end. ,
There has been a recrudescence of
reports of a change in tho head of tho
war oilice. lt wus stated last night in
a usually well informed source that
Lieut. Gen. Sakharoft'will leave very
shortly and be succeeded by Gen. Ki

the war office. It is also reported that
Gen. Pojivonni)' will bo appointed chief
