Hon. J. E. Tindall, of Clarendon
County, who was Secretary of Slate
from 189U to 1804, fell from a tiolley
car in Columbia last Wednesday night
and died frcm the effects of thc fall
on Thursday morning about daylight.
Mr. Tindall was an excellent, Chris
tian gentleman and most highly es
teemed by a wide cirolo of friends
throughout tho State, who deeply re
gret hie death. _
The Dispensary Investigating Com
mittee resumed its work in Columbia
lact week, and it ia probable it will
eontinne for a mouth. It is the objeot
of the Committee lo completo tho in
vestigation in time for the coining
campaign, and the resuH made known
to thc people that they ean see for
themselves. They have found some
new revelations, and probably others
will be revealed before they make
their final report.
The report of the Southern Cotton
Association, whioh was issued a few
dayB ego, placeo the cotton acreage at
27,735,880 acres for 190G. The acre
age for 1905 was 26,999,042, being
2.7C per cent ICBS than for 1906.
South Carolina's aoroago was2,212,807
last year, and is estimated to be
2,162,851 for 1906. While the entire
aorcage may be greater, it does not
necessarily follow that tho yield will
be proportionately larger, for cotton is
Boveral weeks later than last year, and
the conditions even now are unfavor
Nothing could be more evident or
-more gratifying than the remarkable
ohange of sentiment which tho North
ern presa has of late years undergone
in regard to the South and Southern
questions, blares the Bichmond
Times-.Dispatoh. Time WBB, in no
very reduct: past, ^?hsn our Northern
oontempo:arits found little that was(
pleasant to say about us. Our atti
tude to the negroes, our commeroial
^progressiveness, our conservatisme,
and our aristocratic notions, our al
leged laziness and shiftlessness-on
all these; j oin ts they'?iarely wearied of
haranguing and upbraiding us.D But
the parsing yearsj havo^'Very happily
smoothed that tendency away, and
nowadays the leading papers in other
parts of the country.?are} becoming
. more acd more ready to ?give this sec
tion its due.
Terrible predictions concerning what
will happen to this peor old earth du
ring the next twenty-five years were
made at a prophetic and Second Ad
vent, conference in London last Fri
day, and while they differed somewhat
in details, they all agreed that the
end of the world is at '?baud. They
were not quite ame whether the final
eataatrophe will *eome on May 2, or
April 9, 1931, but>*they were quite
sure that one of these dates will prove
to be the right one.d There can be no
doubt that the world has nearly out
lived its usefulness, the prophets de
clared. The wars and earthquakes
whioh have tfflicted it recently are
proof positive, they jay, and all that
is required to fulfill the prophecies is
the coming of' anti Christ, who is
somewhat ^unkindly identified with

Threatened to Shoot Him.
Columbia, S. C., May 25.- There
waH a sensation herc to day when if.
was announced that Moj. John Black,
dispensary'ldircctor, had"'curscd out
Mr. J. Frazier Lyon on the street be
fore breakfast-^. Maj. Black ?a'a very
cxoitahlc mari and dangcious when in
a passion. Nothing but Mr. Lyon'?
coolness prevented bloodshed. Maj.
Black accused the Investigating Com
mitine of going too deep into his pri
vate aiiaiiri. Ile applied vile epithets
to M r. Lyon's associate, Senator Chris
tensen, aud said lie felt like blowing
Mr. Lyon up on the spot. Ho told
Mr. Lyon to ann himself. Mr. Lyon
was on his way from his flats to the
hotel for breakfast at Wright's, aud
the meeting occurred in frout of thc
Columbia. Mr. Lyon walked back io
bia room a moment and wheu he re
turned Major Black was not around.
Before thc Investigating Committee
Mr. Lyon calmly placed the informa
tion, and Senator Christensen added
that last winter Mr. Hub Evans
threatened to shoot Mr. T. W. Klin
genberg, special attorney, if the wit
nesses should go on the stand to tes
tify against Mr. Evans. The Com
mittee, after taking the matter under
advisement, decided to refer tho mat
ter to tho Governor, with the sugges
tion that Maj. Black should be re
moved from office. Gov. Heyward is
out of the city to-day.
Lit was somewhat amusing to-day to
watch tho course of tho proceedings
of the Investigating Committee. La
boriously the Committee had arrived
at the point where a witness should
say whether or not he had been paid
rebate?. It had been sworn to by a
manager cf th? Augusta Brewery that
he had paid the money to this party,
Adolph Shaver, of Laurens, with the
suspicion that Shayer would turn it
over to Mr. H. H. Evans, in accord
ance with some significant, though not
conclusive testimony on that point.
Shayer had given Mr. Lyon an affida
vit in Laurens. To-day he contra
dicted that affidavit in fifty particu
lars and made a great spectacle of
himself on tho witness stand. His
many contradictions weakened the
force of bis denial that be paid any
rebates to any dispensary officials, and
as a result the testimony of thc man
ager of the Augusta Brewery and oth
er circumstantial evidence is strong.
The price of beer was raisedt $125 a
car to the State of South Carolina in
order to allow Sbayer this profit,
therefore if any of it did find lodge
ment in an improper place the State of
South Carolina paid the tune. Shsyer
at Laurens denied representing a li
quor house ; he denied that he re
ceived.$125 a o?r ; be denied that he
had contributed any but newspaper
information as to the order of the new
board in March of this year. All of
these things were eoDirauicf.ed to-day,
and he offered laughable. ezous?B. Ii
was proved that instead of one car bi?
oonoern got orders for five cars, and
he knew it, for he had received the
news from one Goodman,^representing
the samo liquor house that Maj. Black
had represented. Mr. Lyon made it
olear that the announcement of one
oar was made when/really five oars

Mobi.e, Ala., May 27.-About three
miles from the oity this afternoon, du

There's a reason, and there's a reason why you should trade
with us, too. First of all, wo bave never paraded ourselves aa

reputation for selling High Class Goode of first quality rather
than a sower of ?heap, shoddy stofji that makes trouble from
the tinto it leavea the manufacturer's ha*ds.' Quality, not quan
tity, has been our first consideration since we first started buei
sen twelve years ago, and to prove that this policy bas paid us
we point with pride to tho splendid reputation und trade we

far oat-classesother half?; iW H it has btcom? a household
word throughout the whole length a .id breadth of the County.
Sc much for being a aiiokler for quality. / ?Ki'J:
Another reason the gang trades with us is, that we pay espe
cial attention to each individual's bill, xegardYes3 of how email
it is, and by. LO doing every enatomer feels that his burineas is
appreciated because his orders are given the attention they de
terve. There are other reasons jast as convincing which you ?
