GIVES HIS PLAN
Gtfernoi Wilson Ts?b th Way to Reg
?late Lawlessness of Frosts is to
PUT ONE DUMMY IN JAIL
Thereafter, He Says, There Will
Be No More Irresponsible Dam
my Directors to Hire Out to the
Large Corporations and Trusts
That Prey Upon the People.
George E. filler, special cor
respondent of the Detriot News, in
a letter to his paper from Sea Girt,
N. J., the summer capital of ; that
state, says if Gov. Woodrow "Wil
son becomes President of the Unit
3d States,' his message on the sub
ject of trust busting will go to con
gress with the decisive emphasis of
f: the rifle shots which echo through
his library from the range as you
sit in conversation with him in the
State Executive's summer home
here. They will if the Governor
retains the opinions he now holds
on the illegal things done by the
people characterized by Mr. Roose
velt as malefactors of great wealth.
Gov. Wilson is no hopeless despond
ent. He disagrees utterly with those
who believe the law cannot be made
to reach such as seek to adjust the
business machinery of this country
so that all the wealth will fall into
a few hoppers. His ideas are sharp
ly defined and his plans simplicity
He would send violators of the
law to jail. That is the whole of. the
antidote he prescribes. Fines, he
says, place too much burden of the
punishment upon the innocent. And
he scoffs at the idea that the guilty
cannot be detected and convicted. It
will be seen that Gov. Wilson's plan,
quoted below, for trust busting dif
fers very radically from the blus
ter and do nothing plan of Taft and
Republicans 'generally, but agrees
with Bryan's plans. Here is Gov.
Wilson's plan as outlined to the
"The managers of corporations
themselves always know the men
who originated the acts changed
against them as done in contraven
tion of the law; is there no means
by which their names may be dis
closed to the officers of justice?
Every' act, every policy, hit the con
duct of the affairs of a corporation,
originates with some particular of
ficer, committee or board. The of
ficer, the committee, the board, or
dering an act, or originating a pol
icy, contrary to the law, or intended
to neutralize or contravene it, is
a serious offender against society
and muse be punished if our insti
tutions are to Etand.
It is neither sensible or affecv
the to attempt to punish the vcr
poration. We do not indict the gun,
tut the man behind the gun. * Jt is
a fatuous and unnecessary fiction to
treat a corporation as in all respects
a legal person. To control such of
its acts as are against public policy,
we must cease to deal with it by
means of the law as if it were only
a single individual, a responsible
individual, and must bandle it for
what it is?an artificial agency.
You cannot punish a corporation.
Fines fall upon the wrong persons.
Fines fall opon the wrong persons,
and more hea vily upon the Innocent
than the guilty. Those who know
nothing whatever of the offense for
which the fine is inflicted must pay
as well as those who originated and
carried through the illegal act. So
the real punishment falls upon Tie
stockholders and the customers.
"If you will but put one or two
conspicuous dummies into the peni
tentiary, there will be no more dum
mies for hire. You can stop the traf
fic in dummies, and then, when the
idea has taken root In the corporate
mind that dummies will be confis
cated, the custom of the business
will change. Modern business enter
prise make (the corporations indis
pensable. None of us, I take it, has
any quarrel with business success,
but all of us ought to have an irre
cincilable quarrel with business law
lessness. As I told the lawyers of
the American Bar Association in an
address last year, corporations do
not do wrong. Individuals do
wrong. When we stop thai wrong
doing we have taken from the
corporation all the power of evil of
which the people so justly corn-!

THOUSANDS DIE OF STARVATION
China Sorely Beset by Famine as
Well as Disease.
I News was brought by the steamer
Empress of Japan that thousands
are dying of starvation in Kiang Su,
along the Yang Tse, following the
floods, and the situation was expecb
ed to augment gre?:.tly the spread
of the rebellion in China.
The whole of the country was un

Corpses were floating everywhere
and famine stricken refugees were
dying daily from diseases.
In places the Yan.. Tse was thirs
ty-five miles broad and floating bod

feeding, were seen in numbers.
A captain of one of the rivet

Between 60,000 and 70,000 refu

gathered at Nankiang. Cholera was
raging among them and typhus was
said to be equally bad, .beside other
forms of pestilence. The death rate
was reported to be between 200 and
300 a day. Food has been sent to
them, but it was almost impossible
for medical aid to effect any relief.

SHOT FINALLY BY RUSE
A Member of the Tenth Cavalry, Col

Girl, Then Mortally Wounds an
other Negress. He Runs on Ram
Tre people of Burlington, Ver
mont, near which place is located
Fort Ethan Allen, have about got
their full of negro soldiers. Recently
Thos. Carlisle, a trooper of the Tenth
Cavalry, which is composed of color
ed men, except the officers, came out
of his quarters of the fore, where
the regiment is stationed, with a
rifle and his .belt filled with amir
nition, and proceeded to shoo' up
several people, all of whom were
like himself* negroes. He was a big,
vicious, bad looking fellow.
Before he himself was brought
down by a bullet from a rifle in the
hands of Lieut. Blaine, a white of
ficer of the Tenth, Carlisle in his
homicidal fury had killed Andrew C.
Fox, a comrade in the regiment; had
murdered a young negress named
Clara Washington, coming upon her
as she lay ill in bed and sending
three bullets tearing into her body
while she was in the act of scream
ing for mercy, and had mortally
wounded another colored girl named
Against Fox he had a grievance,
but against the woman none at all;
he merely came upon them in his
flight after the slaying of his fellow
soldiers. He had run into a negro re
sort, known as Bluefort's restaurant,
and rushed through the rooms seek
ing to shoot to death all whom he
had found there. Other women In the
house ran screaming out into the
roads and sought the shelter of near
by woods. He had left Beatrice Stew
art for dead.
Mortally wounded, as the girl was
she staggered and floundered and
crawled after the other women un
til one or two, more courageous than
the rest made a dash for her and
drew her with them in the shelter of
the underbrush and trees. Then
Carlisle found himself facing a
fight with a corps of thirty armed
soldiers. Standing in a second-story
window of the Bluefort resort he
fought them furiously. Bullets
smashed the pane ot glass over his
head and tore away the sashinig. He
returned he fire as fast as he could
pull the trigger of his riffe.
In the end he fell victim to a ruse
devised and executed by Capt. God
son and Lieut. Blaine. He was shot
in the hip by Blaine and sank help
lessly to the floor of the room.
Brought to his senses by the shock
of the wound, he signalled his will
ingness to surrender. Fox, the mur
dered soldier, is understood to have
caused Carlisle's arrest for a slight
infraction of discipline. The man had
simply been remanded to quarters
for the day. His rifle and ammuni
tion had not ueen taken from him.
Fox had no chance for his life. The
top of theman's skull was complete
ly carried away by the high-powered
bullet. A group of soldiers rushed
toward Carlisle .But they, like Fox,
were unarmed. And he turned on
them, his rifle on his shoulder. The
maniacal expression of his eye halt
ed every man of them. Without a
word he turned suddenly and ran
down the road, off the military
reservation and into the restaurant
The dining room and bar were
empty at the time. So he tramped up
stairs. He put his shoulder to the
door of the first room he came to and
sent it flying backward. There he
confronted the sick woman, Clara
Washington. She screamed and ask
ed him wha he meant to do. His ans
wer was to shoot her in the breast
and head and thigh, killing her. He
heard after that the voice of women
who had just come in downstairs.
He leaped down the stairway, swept
in on the women, shot Beatrice Stew
art and grinned when he saw her
As he stood watching the woman
writhing on the floor he heard the
sound of approaching horses and
the tramp of men. He ran upstairs
and took his place at a corner win
dow, and as the company of soldiers,
under command of Capt. Godson and
Lieut. Blaine, approached he met
them with every bullett that remain
ed in tho magazine of his rifle. A
i volley came back at him, but, al
though it splintered the glass and
woodwork of the window he was
Then strategy was used against
him. Capt. Godson drew his men off
at a distance in front of the house,
taking so open a position as to in
vite Carlisle's fire. It nearly proved
a fatal ruse for the Captain, for one
of the negroe's bullets sent the offi
cer's horse to its knees, and Godson
had just time to leap free of the an
imal as it kicked and writhed in its
Then while Carlisle's attention
was attracted to the men in front of
him Lieut. Blaine, armed with a riffe,
had made a detour into the woods
and approached the house on the
right side and shot as he looked out

It is supposed that Mr. Daniels

ELECTS A NEW MAYOR.
Blackville Has An Exciting' Election
A special dispatch from Blackville
to "The State says the municipal
election there Monday, which result
ed in the selection of A. B. Hair as
mayor, afforded enough excitement
to last for a long time.
The whiskey question played an
important part, and the town was
worked up. The prohjbitionists put
out" a ticket headed by Charles Wil
son, but another ticket was later
brought out which was also headed
by Mr. Wilsora. Then the prohibition
ists demanded that he repudiate the
use of his name in connection with
the last ticket, and a misunderstand
ing arose which resulted in the pro
hibitionists taking Mr. Wilson's name
off their ticket, and substituting that
of A. B. Hair.
Interest was at fever heat, and
personal difficulties were narrowly
averted. However, the election pass
ed off without trouble, and the pro
hibition ticket won. The women of
the to.vm held prayer meetings on
election day, praying for the success
of the "dry" ticket. This was said
to be a crucial test for Blackville In
the matter\f enforcing the law
against the illegal sale of whiskey,
and the mayor aind council elected
are determined on this course.

THE WICKED TAX
That Is What M?ckle Calls the fligh
Tariff Duty on Sogars.
BE TURNS THE LIGHT ON
The Big Sugar Refiner and Coffee
Dealer Says the Government is
Robbing the Public, So Tliat the
Sugar Men May Pile Up Millions
Just before sailing for Europe
from New York the other day John
Arbuckle, the sugar refiner and cof
fee manufacturer, Issued a state
ment strongly attacking the tariff
on raw sugar, declaring it to be a
"wicked tax," for the benefit of the
beet sugar interests. In his state
ment Mr. Arbuckle said:
"I have not been well, and am
going abroad to rest and recuperate
in preparation for the fight to be
made in congress at its next session
for free sugar. I propose to devote
all my time and all my ability and
all my strength to the abolition of
all import duties'on raw sugar, a
most wicked tax on a food necessity
Ot all our people. It taxes the man
who works for a wage of a dollar a
day as much as it taxes an Astor or
or Mr. Morgan or Mr. Reckefeiler.
Each eats, or at least, needs, the
same amount of sugar, and they pay;
not according to their ability, but
according to their needs, reversing
an elemental rule of taxation.
"Just look at these figures show
ing how the prices of refined sugar
to the consumer is made up. I dis
charged the abnormal price lately,
prevailing for the raw product and
take a normal price.
"Price paid by Nsw York refiners
for raw sugar, 2.4 cents.
"Duty per pound, 1.685 cents.
"With the raw sugar costing the
refiner 4,085 cents, his price to
wholesale grocers for granulated
sugar is about 4.90 cents per pound,
and the wholesale grocers net price
to New York retail grocers per pound
is about 4.95 cents, and this retail
grocers' prices to consumers was be
tween 5.15 and 2.25 cents per pound
So that for every pound of sugar
going into a household in New York
City at 5.25 cents per pound the gov
ernment of the United States has ex
acted 1.685 cents or almost the
third of a total price. It means
that every household that row buys
three and a half pounds of sugar
could for the same money buy five
and one-quarter pounds il! this tax
"If as someone has said, sugar is
the comfort of old age ani the de
light of youth, your Uncle Sam is en
gaged in taking candies from chil
dren, the height of meanness. The
duty on raw sugar is 78 per cent of
"You will be surprised to compare
this import duty with others:
I Sugar, per cent. 7S.S7
I Campagne, per cent .70.00
j Automobiles, per cent.40.00
Furs, per cent.i.50.00
: Diamonds, per cent.10.00
Pearls, per cent . 20.00!
"The duty which the Unied
States exacts on the importation of
raw sugar holds up the price of the
beet sugar, as well as the cane sugar
for the gentlemen who are manufact
uring beet sugar exact from the puly
lic every penny they can get.
"The beet companies have stated,
as I am informed, that they can pro
duce bet sugar at from 2 1-2 to 3
cens per pound. They sell at from
5 to 7 cents. The beet sugar peo
ple use the tariff to exact the utter
most penny for their product.
"Everywhere the beet sugar man
ufacturer takes full advantage of the
tariff tax and it results that the peo
ple of the United States pay the tax
to the government on the cane su
gar and the beet sugar barons on the
beet sugar. The saving to the
American people on the sugar con
sumed lasty ear if the tax were re
moved would amount to almost $150

WAS KILLED BY TRAIN.
Body of Unknown Man Found On
A dispatch from Greenwood says
the body of an unknown man who
had been ground to death by a train
on the Seaboard Air Line was found
Friday near iSalak, three miles west
of town by a gang of railroad labor
ers. The body had rolled down an
embankment after being run over by
the train and was hidden from view
by vines and bushes. From all indi
cations the' man had been dead at
least ten days.
The body was horribly multilated
arid the examining physician, Dr. J.
B. Owens, could n^jt be positive as to
color. From the haTr he judged it to
be a white man. A piece of paper, a
bill for coods sold, had the name "W.
E. Hosty" on it, and this so far is the
only clue upon which to go upon to
establish the unfortunate's identity.
Coroner rihadrack empannelled a
jury of inquest this afternoon but
the jury could do very little other
then find a verdict that the unknown
man came to his death by being run
over by a train. Who the man Is
or when the fatal accident happened
will likely remain a mystery. The
clothing was of an ordinary qual
ity, rather cheap, and appeared to
have seen considerable wear.
