Comptroller General JoneB has pre
pared an interesting table showing
the taxable property under the license

The farmers of the South have had
full argument laid before them of the
advantage to themselves to be wrought
by curtailment of their cotton produc
tion this year. None of them can
plead ignorance o? the situation.
Whether or not they have acted accord
ing to the lights before them will be
known within a few months, with
some degree of deiiniteness.
The indications are that the coming
session of the State Summer School at
Clemson will be the most successful
ever held. The applications arc pour

We extend our congratulations to
Major J. C. Hemphill, editor of The
News and Courier. A few days ago
he celebrated the twenty-fifth anni
versary of his connection with that
excellent journal and was the reoipient
of hearty felioitations on part of Citi
zens of Charleston and a substantial
recognition of his worth on part of
the directors of the paper, who pre
sented him with a trip to Europe.
Thus some editors' lines do fall in
pleasant places, and in this case de
Although it is stated that there is
a practical cessation or deadlock in
the negotiations for a treaty between
the United States and China covering
the question of the admission of
Chinese to this country, the existing
laws on the subjeot are sufficient to
prevent any serious embarrassment
over the matter. It is olaimed that
these lawB will not stand the test of
our Federal courts, but this is denied.
If they should be found defective i
Would be easy to amend them. The
fear that beoause of the lack of
treaty with China some contingency
might arise whioh would permit
large number of coolies to enter this
oountry is not well founded. The
executive department of the Govern
ment would doubtless be eqjial to
keeping out any such influx until
Congress oonld take the necessary
action to keep the bars up.
Sapulpa, I. T., May 11.?At 11:40
o'clock last night the dispatcher for
the Frisco in this city, received a re
port from Enid, O. T., advising that a
tornado had struck Snyder, Oklahoma,
wrecking the town and killing 500 peo

of the Frisco at that town. The re
quest came also for assistance. On
t ie sti ength of the report the dispatch

easterly direction and after proceeding
a mile went northeast. The path or
the tornado was half a mile wide and
the country for three miles was cleared
of everv residence, barn and fence.

Our people liad the fond pleasure of
attending u grund old timo picnic lust

union picnic of the three schools of
this district, namely: McAdams, Long
