murder of icberc C. Shirer .Thomas
I*. Howard, private detective, was ar
rested iu Augusta on Monday on
a warrant f worn out by Chief of Po
lice George P. Elliot. The charge in
the warrar t was subordination of
perjury. T xe Chronicle says this un
erpected tu *n of affairs was a result
of the pre iminary hearing into the
charges a ;ainst Cunningham and
Kiisel befo e Judge Hammond Satur
day norme j. Howard testified there
that a neg o, Bill Glover, had come
Zo him an?, told him that on the
night whe) young Shirer disappear
ed he was hidden on the river bank
trying to Veep off the effects of too
much "whh cey. He had been asleep
and was a rakened during the night
by voices o ' two men leaving the riv
er side, fee did not know the hour
but from I s testimony it must have
been far i ist the time when grave
yards yawi. The dead body of Shi
rer was f ?und 30 hours later, al
most unde ? the temporary trestle
work on w lich foe said the men were
standing v hen he first saw them.
Suspectl ig nothing at the time, he
thought n thing of the presence of
the men. He left the place of his
coneealme t and walked southward
along Was lington street on his way
home.. In front of him walked the
two men. Howard testified further
that Glover had told him they went
into a horse which the sleuth after
ward fourd to be 310 Washington
street. C ?nningham and Kiisel liv
Aecordi g to Howard, the negro
described one of the men as being
much talk r thr n the other and dress
ed in a si it of dark clothes and the
shorter oj e as being clad in a dark
coat and prey trousers of a light
shade, a c ascription wMch In general
fitted Cur niagham and Kiisel except
In one v tal feature. Cunningham
had no gr y trousers at that time and
wore a fu 1 suit of dark blue.
It is nc w revealed by a statement
of Glovei to the chief of police,
which wi"! be produced at the hear
ing that he was not on the river
bank that nighty that the whole story
?was man factured according to the
negro's itaement, in the cunning
brain of 1 om Howard, and none of it
ever real y ibappened.
The ne rxo says Howard took him
to the ri er, explained the situation
and told lim what to say -when call
ed upon ' o testify and promised him
a j reward for his duplicity, a small
pa'rt of w lieh has been paid.
Anothf r witness who appeared at
the preli ainary Saturday was Char
He W. D* penport. He swore that he
was in I ladford's near beer saloon
one nlgW and a young man wearing a
light coh red suit of clothes came in
and offe ed to pawn a watch. This
evidence was "intended to show that
Cunningl am had the watch of Shirer
In his po jses?ioa after ahlrcr's death
and was drying to dispose of It.
Daven port failed to identify Shi
rer's wat :h which wa?i shown him as
?the one < ffered by the young man in
the sal04 n. Cunningham stood be
fore him wd Davenport could not say
that he 1 /as the same man who tried
to pawn the time piece. When ques
tioned a to the time he did not re
call the 'ate or specify the night.
In a s atement made since, Daven
port ad: lits that Cunningham was
not the man who offered him the
watch a id that he was induced by
Howard to testify at the preliminary.
As a t< suit of these startling dis
closures it ds expected that Cunning
ham wi 1 he released from confine
ment w thout bond, and if this is
done, i> almost necessarily follows
that th? bond of $1,000 under which
Kiisel r dw holds his liberty, will be
cancelk I and the young man reliev
ed of it obligations.
Howsrd was formerly a detectipe
on the police force of Augusta and

grounds Cope won from Denmark this
afternoon by the score of seven to
four. This makes fifteen straight
games Cope has won since the first

seventeen games won and three lost.
A factor in the winning of the games
is the heavy batting of the home team

on Monday afternoon in about twen
ty or more automobiles filled with

pleasant time, an came back well
pleased with the trip. The people of
St. Matthews were out in large num

ADVICE TO THE FARMER
^MARKETING COTTON SLOWLY
MEANS MUCH TO THEM.
The Pressure Downward in the Mar
ket by the Buyers the Coming
Season Will be Desperate.
Mr. C. J. Hadden, writing to the
Atlanta Constitution from Liverpool,
If a campaign of agitation be vig
orously pressed throughout the
South for demanding good prices for
cotton, it would be worth not less
than fifty million dollars to the cot
ton growers during the season 1911
"The newspaper reports and the
feeling here indicate a large crop. It
is a thing devoutly prayed for by the
European spinners. The pressure
downward in the market by the buy
ers during the coming season will be
"The English spinners have uni
formedly lost money for three or
more years, excepting where, by rea
son of peculiarly favorable condi
tions, a manufacturer 'has been able
to hold his own. A sentiment flav
ored with British national patriotism
may make tine coming struggle a
Waterloo. The manufacturers are
"It is notoriously true that Liver
pool (Liverpool in cotton means
England) lost its dominant place in
the control of cotton prices ten years
ago. New Orleans is now the control
ling factor. New York is little more
than a gambling shop. The change
came about when organizations of
southern farmers began to teach
them that cotton selling was a trans
action with two sides to it?that the
seller might demand as well as the
buyer might offer. The growth of
this knowledge has done more to
regulate prices of the past decade
than has the varying volumes of the
"If fifty per cent of the Southern
cotton producers would resolve as
solemnly as the "Three Swiss" that
they would not part with their sta
ple for less than 15 cents a pound and
stick to it till the 1st of January,
voiced by a hundred great mass
meetings. I am confident cotton would
go to seventeen cents.
"This requires a wide-spread pa
triotic thrill, such as swept over the
south, when in 1861 the old men
put their savings into confederate
bonds and the young men took up the
hardships of common sold'lers. Such
a campaign would be worth more to
us of the South than would have a
dozen victories at Gettysburg. We.
are people of sentiment and there
has never been a time in our history
when that fine quality of our coun
try could have been appealed to with
a greater certainty of results.
"A leading British statistical paper,
in a recent number reviewing the
cotton market, said:
"At the present time the cotton
trade is passing through a. period of
tra\all. It is experiencing almost
tc the full the effects of shortness in
"In a conversation last week with
one of the foremost bankers of Lon
don (the representative of the Asso
ciated European Bankers, wno at one
time insisted upon the insurance of
cotton bills of lading) he frankly ad
mitted that the European bankers
backed down :iom their demands for
?the avowed reason that a majority of
them feared such a step would lose
"If the cotton producers could
know their strength?could see face
to face the vantage ground on which
they are camped?a triumph is
theirs?a triumph which means mil
lions now and eventually a power
and prestige not hither enjoyed by

Stolen Typewriter Found.
Chief of Police Fischer made a
lucky foaul yesterday when he recov
ed an Oliver typewriter, which is al
leged to have been stolen from the
Atlantic Coast line yards by a negro,
John Wesley Summers, alias "Long
Boy." For the past several months
cars have been broken into and goods
stolen, but the guilty party could not
be apprehended. However, suffi
cient evidence has been gathered to
cause the arrest of John Wesley Sum
mers and Robert Wallace. U is alleg
ed that these two negroes sold the
typewriter to Blythewood and Bal
lard, a negro undertaking firm in this
place, for $4. Shortly after the sale
the typewriter was turned over to the
police department and will be kept
at poehecilatupdasrre'xoofa io.dToB

Cotton Picking Has Commenced?
Other News of Interest.
'Bowman, S. C. Aug. 14th, 1911,
Special?Cotton picking has com
menced hy some of the farmers here
about, fields here and there show up
quite a number of bolls. It is likely
that some will be ginned and put on
the mraket from this section this
week. There is some complaint of
considerable shedding of fruit which
almost invariably accurs at this sea
son of the year, but taken as a whole
the yield will be in excess of any pre
vious year in Bowman's history. Re
cent rains have not been general in
this section and crops are still in
need of more moisture. Heavy lo
cal rains have visited some neighbor
hoods, while oters are badly in peed
of sufficient rains to supply, stock
v/Ith warter as well as to re
lieve the parched crops. Wells are

Fodder pulling is nearly completed
the bulk of this food having .been
saved in good condition.
Unless showers come up more fre
quent the hay crop will he shorter
than usual, less stubble land being
planted in this crop than for some
years past. Some farmers have been
aomewhat "greedy" on the cotton
questions and supplimented the main
crop of this staple with late cotton*
on stubble land.
'Unless pickers get more of a
"hustle" on them than in recent
years, it is quite doubtful if this crop
will be harvested by that date There
is a decided tendency to much slug
gishness along the line compared with
former years. Champion pickers
have either lost their art or are get
ting the hook worm disease of some
thing of that kind.
Mr. J. J. Hutto, a leading mer
chant, of Bowman and LeRoy Smith

FIRST BALE SOLD.
J A Colored Farmer From Near Cope
Gets 11:30 Per Pound.
Yesterday saw the first bale of
new cotton sold in Orangeburg. A
colored farmer,, James Cleckley, has
the honor of marketing the first .bale
of this year's crop. It was picked
last week and finished Tuesday. It
was ginned early yesterday morning
and brought on to Orangeburg imme
diately. He brought it in, and sold
it to Mr. John F. Newbourne for 11:-1
3 0 cents per pound. The cotton was'
raised by James Cleckly on Mr. J.
D. Cleckley's place near Cope. The
bale weighed 494.
This bale was sold to a regular
cotton buyer, and not any merchant
to be put on account. This reason
doubtless explains why some other
towns pay a little more than Orange- i
burg for t'heir first bale.
