TELLS il?EER STORY
) ? _
NEGRO CLA] MS HE SAW MEN IN
A BOA T WITH BODY.
A Sensationa Statement Was Made
i In this City About the Death of
Young Shi er.
The mysteiy -which surrounds the
death of Rob .. C. Shirer, the South
ern railway I agigagemaster, who -was
found dead n the Savannah river,
below the ra lway trestle at Augusta
Wednensday morning, takes on ad
ditional coloi from a statement made
In this city 1 y a negro wtho came to
this city fro; 1 Augusta on Thursday
the same cay Mr. Shirer's bod^
reached here for interment. The ne
gro's statement revives tihe original
theory that t le young man was mur
dered and h 3 body thrown into the
river, thouf h the manner of his
death varies widely from what was at
first suppose d.
The negn's story, if true, gives a
?tartllng clu -9 in the clearing of the
mystery whi fh surrounds the manner
or Shirer's ? eath. The negro stated
that he saw two men In a boat row
ing down tl e Savannah river Tues
day night w th the body of a man in
the .boat "he men pulled up below
the trestle * nd dumped the body of a
man overbo ird. The police here have
been lookiig for the negro who
told the st iry, but could not find
bim. iNo d iubt the negro fears that
"he may be mixed up with the mat
ter and is k jeping himself very close.
It is pos tible that this negro can
throw a gieat deal of ligfot on the
eubject. It Is not only possible, but
It Is plausl'de that murder was com
mitted. Ti e fact that Shirer left all
valuables i n his bureau before he
?went out n tber indicates1 that he ex
pected troible and however the
trouble car e, it sems to have termi
nated mu <h as the young man
* thought, or T Drayton Shirer, the
dead man'? brother Is firm in the be
lief that et leide was not probable. It
Is not imp >8&ible that Shirer did go
towards tl e Southern railway treB
tle. It is j lossible that he was going
there for i. purpose. The banks of
the river nay have been the scene
of a violer t altercation which result
ed in the . xewsome find of Wednes
The Au; usta Herald says for sev
eral days after Shirer's death diffi
culty was -,'xperienced in locating the
man's mczoments after he left his
friends in their rooms, at 310 Wash
ington str et. After diligent search
Chief Ellli t brought to light tne fact
that a fri. nd had seen Shirer on the
corner of .* Mils street and Washington
walking r ipidly toward broad street
befoe dayi reak Tuesday morning. He
called to Shirer, but no response to
Ills calls. After watching him walk
out Wash ngton as far as Reynolds,
the friend walked on. The concluson
was that Shirer bad walked out on
the bridg i and lost his footing.
If the ttory of the negro is to' be
believed i stranger mystery than was
first thou ?ht of, surrounds the death
of the ba jgagemaster. C. V. Kiisel
'and J.' H Cunningham are mystified
at the enl ire lack of details surround
ing the w iereabouts of Shirer all day
Tuesday. Shirer saw his two room
mates at 12:20 Tuesday morning and
for some time they were the only two
persons t ho could be found who saw
bim fron that time until Wednesday
? morning when be was found floating
face dow iward in the water.
There a just tone detail of Shirer's
appearai] je, when he was found that
lends stl 1 more weight to the mur
der theo y. A drowning man Invar
iably flats face downward, his arms
swinging downward. If Shirer had
fallen fr.>m the bridge it seems only
reasonatle that his arms dould have
ibeen exl anded or even swinging, but
for the .'act that the water was not
Bufflcien y deep to permit of it. The
arms, hi wever, were folded beneath
him, ahiost as carefully as if his
body ha I been prepared for burial.
That wo ild have seemed as if he had
been dead some time before being
placed ii the water. The fact that
there w .s no water in his lungs adds
more w< Ight to it
If th i local police are successful
in locat ng the negro who claims to
have se.jn the boatmen and their
load, he may be the means of unrav
eling w lat seems to be one of the
foulest murders ever committed in
August, . He will be diligently
sought, ind then found will be taken
to Augi.sta. It may be the story of
an irre ;ponsible negro, but on the
other hand it may not be. The ne
gro's d sappearance may have been
caused .hrough a fear of being impli
cated ii the case. .
The Times and and Democrat.
The rimes and Democrat is over
forty-tv o years old, and is proud of
the litJral patronage bestowed* on
it both in the way of advertising and
subscri 'tions. The paper has long
since p tssed the experimental stage,
and is iow one of the fixtures of Or
angebu-g. It is Democratic at all
times s ad tries to uphold pure Dem
ocratic doctrine, regardless of the
sneers ind jeers of time-servers and
apolog; ?ts. It has implicit and abid
ing fai h in the people, and believes
that tt ?y can and should be trusted
with 1 he fullest political power.
There 5 no part of Orangeburg coun
ty wht re dt does not circulate, hav
ng over double the crculaton of any
other newspaper published in this
sectaor On this Booster Trip The
Times and Democrat greets you.
Wh n a gentleman In Kentucky
sets ort his decanter and a glass and
then ' urns his back on his visitor
while ie samples the contents of the
decani =r, it is admitted that a gen
erous hospitality has been extended.
That ; 3 all right, but the hospitality
that C rangeburg offers has that beat
all to pieces. It offers nothing to
drink, but plenty of good things to
drink but plenty of good things to
eat a! d a hearty welcome.
VALUE OP COTTON CROP.
Will be Great This Year if Put on
the Market Slowly.
According to the governnrcnt's of
ficial report the condition of the cot
ton crop on July 25, averaged 89.1
per cent of normal. From this, and
basing it on the estimate increased
acreage, experts figure that the grow
ing crop*will total 14,741,631 bales,
the largest ever produced.
But as the Augusta Herald says,
"there's many a slip 'twixt the cup
and the lip," Assuming that the de
ductions of the experts are entirely
correct, based on the condition of the
crop at this time, there is uo assur
ance that this condition will hold
good to the end. Na crop is more
susceptible to unfavorable weather
condition than cotton just in its pres
ent stage. The ttrghtest prospect
may be blighted in a few days and
the promised yield enormously re
Should weather conditions remain
favorable throughout the remainder
of the season and a bumper crop be
produced, it does not follow that the
price must be materially lower. The
cotton consumption of the world is
continually Increasing. To meet its
requirements now calls for more than
17,000,000 bales a year. Even a bum
per crop in our country would not ex
ceed this amount, and so there is no
reason why a fourteen million bale
crop of Amerclan cotton should de
press the price ,by exceeding in sup
ply the demand.
For the past two years the world
has been in an almost >.:ontinuous
state of semi-famine in regard to cot
ton. It will require a large crop to
ease this condition, without depress
ing a normal demand. Besides there
has been a great improvement in
marketing cotton hy the farmers, ow
ing' to their generally improved fi
nancial conditions and "their more
methodic selling. Hence- no great
syiimp in pricp should be appre
A crop as now esti
mated and sold at preeent prices
would bring over one thousand mil
Ion dollars, exclusive of the cot
ton seed. There will be something
doing in the cotton belt wben the
present growing cotton crop shall be
picked and sold.

A Plan by Which AH Boys Can Go
to Clemson College.
In order to enable some young
men who could not otherwise go
through college and obtain a scien
tific knowledge of agriculture, the
trustees of Clemson College have de
cided to begin what will be called
the work-boy course. Beginning
next term twenty boys will be taken,
and divided into two squads. One
will work every othe. week while
the other is at classes. The mem
bers of the squad will be paid from
75 cents to $1.00 per day.
In this way skillful farm labor
will be secured for the college and
at the same time some worthy boys
will be enabled to prepaid themselves
for farming. Only boys who have
had experience on the farm and in
tend to become farmers will be al
lowed this privilege. A knowledge
of reading, writing! and arithmetic
is the only scholastic requirement
necessary. Any boy interested in
this plan write to President Riggs,
Clemson College, S. C.
Germany has been generally cred
ited wnth blocking the movement for
international disarmament and arbi
tration Color nas been given to
this view by Germany's interference
in various international matters,
prominent among which lias?been her
support of Turkey, her aggressive
attitude towards Russia at the time
Austria annexed Herzegovna and
Bosnia, and her present action as to
Morocco. It is therefore all the more
welcome to learn that she regards
favorably the pronosi on of the Unit
ed States as to arbitration treaties.

THE BOOSTER EDITION.
8,500 Copies of Today's Paper Will
Today the Booster Edition of The
Times and Democrat comes out.
From the expressions of a few who
have gotten a preliminary glimpse
at parts of it, we feel sure that it
wdll be interesting reading to every
person who gets a copy of it. The
demand for them has been heavy.
Originaly intending to guarantee a
circulation of ii.OOO, we have now
published an edition of 8,500.
The advertising space was taken
up promptly. To the merchants
whose patronage has enabled us to
publish this edition, we thank them.
To the various people who have aid
ed in any way to make the edition
succesful, we thank them. To the
people who read it through and then
conclude to visit Orangeburg, we
thank them. We believe we could
have easily gotten out a larger pa
per, but we did not attempt to go be
yond eight pages.
How to Kill Them On.
"Knockers" do good some times as
much as we decry them. For an en
thusiastic crowd to burn a gigantic
hammer in order to show their dis
favor of "knockers" may be nothing
more than a curious and spectacular
affair. While it is true that the
"knocker" Is, as a rule, a nuisance
and a detiment to the place, yet
sometimes the conditions make him
unavoidable. If. for instance, bad
social, moral and other conditions
are allowed to flourish then the
"knocker" becomes a very necessary
and useful personage. Anyway,
while nothing will ever do away with
the chronic fault finder, the best way
to decrease his tribe is for any and
every town to be clean, materially
and moraly progressive, and alert for
opportunities of advancement. This
is the way to kil off "knockers" and
chonic fault finders In this and ail
Two Barns Burned.
The barn and stable of Mr. W.
J. Dantzler, of the Providence sec
tion was burned about five o'clock
on last |Saturday afternoon. Ail
the horses and mules were saved,
but Mr. Dantzler lost all of his
rough food. Mr. Dantzler does not
know how the fire occurred, but
thinks it may have occurred from
rats and matches. He was in the
lot when he first noticed the fire,
which spread very rapidly and soon
got beyond control.

LIEUT. DOYLE TAKES CHARGE.
Assigned to Comand Torpedo Boat
The Washington correspondent of
The State says Lieut. Stafford'H.
R. Doyle, N. S. N., of Orangeburg,
is to be detached from duty as as
sistant inspector of engineering ma
terial with headquarters at Philadel
phia, and assigned to the command
of the torpedo boat destroyer Pauld
ing, flagship of the eighth division of
the Atlantic torpedo flotilla noy op
erating with the battleship fleet.
The fact that the lieutenant suc
ceeds In this important command
Lieut. Commander Yates Stirling, U.
S. N., an officer of many years his
senior in rank, shows what unusual
confidence the navy department re
poses in the South Carolinian.
Lieutenant Doyle recently completed
the .advanced course in steam engi
nering at th graduate school in An
napolis, Mo., having finished the
regular four years naval academy
course in 1900.
It is more than noteworthy that
this officer put put In seven years
straight away on the battleshp Ken
tucky, joining her as a midshipman
cn probation and leaving her a full
fledged lieutenant and chief engi
neer. Subsequently he was for two
years chief engineer of the scout
cruiser Birmingham and it is a mat
ter of common knowledge at the de
partment and a source of distinct
pleasure to his many friends that the
'Birmingham's excellent steaming
records are largely due to Lieut.
Doyle's ability and indefatigable

The annual picnic of the Elloree
Woodmen Crcle will be held at Je

Thursday, the seventeenth. This af
fair is always largely attended and
if is safe to say that a large crowd
will be present on that day. The

As usual with all picnics there
must be some speaking to engage
the attention of the crowd. Several

Will Protect the Birds.
There went into effect August 1
in New Jersey one of the severest
laws ever enacted for the protection
of birds. Any person weang a sin sie
feather of a bird protected by the
statute is liable to arrest and to a
fine of $20 for each offense. The
law applies to the plumage of birds
coming from other states as well
as to those native to New Jersey. The
New York Herald says a law confin
ed to a single state cannot be thor
oughly effective, but it can and
doubtless will serve as a model for
other states. Game laws become
geuinely beneficial as soon as the
possesion of game out of season was
made punishable. So it will be for
the protection of birds of beautiful
plummage. A long campaign of ed
ucation has been maintained. Now
we ae seing the law that can do. It
is to be hoped New Jersey will en
force It vigorously, *
