parsonage or a cliurc'h. That blood
money helped to build the Methodist 1
church and parsonage at Newberry
and it was known to be blood money.
Rev. C. M. Boyd, who was stand
ing in the crowd cried out: "Tell us
about the Spartan'burg investigation, 1
when you said on the stand that you i
would like to have a drink now. Just
now you told a woman how to raise I
her child so as not to be a drunkard: 1
Tell -us about the investigation." Mr.
Blease admitted that he said is and,
went on to say that the (Mr. Boyd)
looked like a man who would take a i
drink of beer when he got a chance,
and if he wanted to they would take
one together if he wanted to. On
learning that Mr. Boyd was a minis
ter, Mr. Blease apoligized.
Mr. Blease resumed speaking, but
did not say much more before he sat
down when he had not been speaking
The audience commenced calling
for Mr. Boyd to speak, who responded
in a forcible manner. He said he had
not intended to say anything at the
meeting but when the Church had
been slandered and Christian minis
try insulted he was compelled 'to say
In the course of his speech he said
he was not fighting Tillmanism, he
had only been in this state a few
years and knew little of 1him. He re
called the fact that when he came to.
Prosperity,a few years ago, there was
no dispensary, no policeman patroll
ed the streets and there was no guard
house. Now the town has all three,
and the people know t'he state. of af
Rev. Mr. Boyd held tihe undivided
attention of the audience who, at the
close of his speech showed their ap
preciation of his words by congratu
When Mr. Blease left the stand, he
was halted by Rev. P. H. E. Derrick,
who dhallenged on same statements
Mr. Blease made in his speech, flatly
contradicting him. Mr. Blease ap
parently tried to avoid difficulty and
he turned and walked off, leaving
Mr. Derrick still talking, who, be
fore Mr. Blease had not gone fifteen
feet, said: "And if you deny it. you
are a liar." Mr. Blease walked on
off as if he had not heard the :emark.
SThe sentiment manifested at the
Smeeting was a little against the dis
rpenlsa and t!here is little dioubt in
the mind s of the anti-dispensary
forces that the dispensary will be
voted out by a overwhelmmng ma
jorty. But, likewise the upholders of
the dispensary side were connident of
winning out on the 2gth. Anyway,
the campaign from now on is go
fing to be a hot one.

POSSIBILITIES OF COTTON.
The Staple is now Being Used in
Manufacturing Artificial Silk
Product Sells for $3 Pound.
The cotton crop of the south is
a-c present bringing into the states
that produce it something like $6oo,
ooo,ooo annually. What will be the
stupendous income that it will rep
resent when newer practical uses have
been discovered for the staple, can
of course, be only speculated upon.
We know this much, however, name
ly, that scientists -are daily s'triving
to dscover some hdi.herto unemployed
method of rendering the principal
product of our broad acres of this
section more valuable than it has 'been
in the past.
And a recent issue of the Nashville
American directs at-tention to the fact
that the fiber is being maniufactured
into artificial silks, the Italans es
pecally being adept in ihus converting
the cellulose of cotton into fabrics
that closely resemble the more ex
pensive ma-terial of genuine silk.
For i while this., practice has
proved a very gold inine to those
who were shrewd enough to first car
ry it out, the product selling at aboMt
$3 per pound, and a factory paying a
dividend of 35 per cen't for 1904, but
other wide-awake capitalists have
"caught on" and though t'he profit
is bound to -fall off to a great degree
in the near future, it will still remain
sufficiently alluring to tempt enter
prising manufacturers 'to invest tiheir
-The Nashville American also states
that the whole of silk raising France
is up in arms -over the matter; that a
petition has been presented- to the
government asking that it be render
ed a crime to label any such false
goods as "soie" or "s'ilk," while in
Lombardy it is determined to beg
that a distirnguishing mark be requir
ed to be placed on all packages of
such false, or cotton silk..
The phase of the dispute in regard
to this matter is not a subjec-t to
concern us. of course, unless, indeed,
they should so legislate in France as
to pohibit the use of cotton in con
nection with silk altogether. As
there is no indication of that. .how
ever, at present, we may conten-t
ourselves with uniting with the Nash
ville American in the hope that this
development of a new use for cotton,
taken in connection wth what does
not seem to be unreasonable expec
tation of eadh. year producing anoth
er something like it, may serve to
keep the product in chief of our plan
ters at the present high price, even if
it does not lead to still higher quota
tions in the future.
Science is making rapid advance
then, should it not do the same with
respect to its discovery of new and
valuable and advan:ageous uses to
which the cotton crop may be put?
We will hope so. at any rate, even
-hough it be devoted to a debasing
GREAT CHURCH BURNED.
St. Thomas', New York, Badly Rav
ished, Damage Being $250,000.
New York, Aug. is-St. Thomas'
Episcopal dhurch on Fift1h, avenue
and Fifty-t'hird street, one of the most
richly furnished religious edifices in
America, was wrecked today by fire.
Within a block of the ruined church
are the horces of half a score of the
country's wealth'iest men, including
those of John D. Rockefeller, William
Rockefeller and the late Daniel S.
Lamont. The hotel St. Regis is
scarcely a block -away and scores of
the finest city homes in America are
in the section of which St. Thomas'
church was practically tihe centre.
'Dhe fire was confined to the church.
Defective electric wiring is sup
posed to have started the fire. The
loss is estimated at least $2,500,000.
Only a mere shell of stone wall is
left standing, %nd many valuable
paintings and bas-reliefs are ruined.
One bronze bas-relief called "The
Adoration of the Cross," valued at
$50,ooo was totally destroyed. Two
large paintings, "The Resurrection,"
and "0hrist Iliealing the Sick," were
also burned. Sumptuous altar and
chancel furnishings, including a $20,
ooo organ, were destroyed.
We are showing our new style fall
and winter hats on our counters to
day. Best styles and best values in
the city. A. C. JONES.
