GLISS CONTR AICTS
WILL BE IODIFIED
THEY WILL NOT BE CANCELED

Existing Contracts Will be

There was an unexpected fight
Saturday on the matter of the state
ment of the Carolina Glass company
published in the State Saturday
morning. Several attorneys of the
glass company were present during
the proceedings of the house and ex
pressed a desire to have the state
ment printed on the journals of the'
house. Mr. LaFitte made a motion
to thit .effect and after some rather
b6inted discussion. the motion was
'tabled by an almost unanimous vote.
Mr. LaFitte in making the motion
glated that it was done in the inter
est of fairness. He wanted to see the
gettlemen who are directors of the
glass company put in the proper light
ob the records. It was due them in
view of the fact that the house had
takn official notice of the matter.
Oaptain Sellers was the first to
raise objection. and Mr. Beamguard
moved to table the motion of Mr. La
The house was about to vote down I
Mr. LaFitte's 'motion when Mr. Por
ter A. McMaster made an appeal to
the house for fair treatment for these
honorable citizens of Columbia.
Mr. - Beamguard's objection was
that the statement shoild be incor
porated in the report of the inves

statement was an argument against
Mr. LaFitte said his motidn had
been made in good faith.' It had been
for the purpose of treating the officers
and directors of the glass company
with proper courtesy, and let them go
down on the rec6rds giving their side
of the case.
Captain Doar wanted to know if
the committee would not print this
statement in its report.
'Mr. LaFitte replied that there was
no guarantee ,that this committee
would ever meet again. Furthermore
this house .will never meet again, and
the next general assembly might not
print the reply of the glass company.
Mfr. MeFaddin stated that these
gentlemen would lose their contracts
and to that they offer no objeetions.
Their reputations are dear to them
and they,want the opportunity to go
into the records in ' explanation of
their course. Mr. McFaddin stated
that ~the statement reflects upon no

from the committee.
Mr. Spivey, Mr. Fraser and Mr.
Lyon were in the house but took no
part in the discussion. Their silence
indicated what they thought. The
house voted down Mr. LaFitte 's mo
'Mr. Lyon then presented a concur
ent resolution relative to the transac
tions with the glass company. This
resolution takes the place of the one
passed Friday night which was tabled
by the senate for the one presented
by Mr. Lyon.
Capt. Sellers, in order to get the
matter before the house, moved to
strike out the resolving words.
Mr. Lyon made a statement that
this resolution was in a little more
friendly manner than the other res
olution. It was but just and fair to
the' glass company to meet them on
such terms as this as it has agreed to
.~give up its contracts. The committee
Khad an agreement with the officers
f the glass factory and recommend
ed the adoption of the resolution. It
would save to the State $30,000 to
0000 on outstanding contracts.
(apt. Sellers withdlrew his motion,
for he heartily favored the resolution
Sand the resolution was agreed to and
was sent to the senate. It provides'

"Not Like Other. Girls"
This popular star heads the east in
the above production in our eity on
the 26th of March. supported by :.'ne
of the strongest companies ever seen
in melodrama. This great sensational
playi "Not Like Other Girls'' is dra
matized from a pamphlet written by
Count Leo Tolstoi, the Russian novel
ist, in which he denounces the settle
ment of international difficulties by
the arbitrament of sword and gun and
publicly charges all Emperors, Kings
and Presidents who resort to war for
this p)urpose, wvith murder. Tolstoi
believes it is a violation of God 's
commandment " Thou Shalt Not
Kill." Based on this. together with
a personal conference witll Tolstoi,
Mr. Schwartz the noted Philadelphia
playwright, has woven his great
drama which is now one of the sea
son's greatest sugeesses, and already
New York has followed Philadelphia
and has set the stamp of approval and
seal of success on it. The play as
conceived by the author. brings to
the surface the strongest heart story
and intensely interesting play before
the public. Illustrating histrionic
ability of the highest order, a charm
ing story of love is interwoven
throughout the entire, while a vein
of strange, weirdlike sensation runs
throughout the play. The plot in.
volves those familiar and very inter
esting passions, "Love, Jealousy and
Revenge" cleverly woven around
strange dramatic situations. The

JEWELED SUSPENDER BUCKLE.
Gold-Mounted "Galluses" for Which
One May Pay $120.
For men who, in the way of braces,
like something rather more elaborate
than galluses of homespun. such as
lately were presented to Speaker Can
non, there are provided gold moun
ed suspenders, and these can be had
in a variety of styles and mountings.
The web of the gold mounted sus
penders is, of course, of silk and for
the most part of white silk, but they
can be had in any color desired.
Some of the gold mountings are ex
tremely simple. The gold buckles and
end piece on some of the smooth, nar
row, hard finish 'webs, for instance,
are as plain as the white metal fit
tings on a pair of suspenders that
would cost 50 cents.
Others have buckles that are some
what larger and more ornamental in
shape and either embossed or engrav
ed with a pattern. Some of these are
set with small sapphires. some dia
These gold suspender buckles are
made of 14 karat gold so that they
will withstand wear, for it is not the
custom of men who wear suspenders
of this sort, when the webs wear out,
to toss them into the scrap basket.
When the webs wear out the wearer
takes the suspenders back to the jew
eler and has the gold buckles niounted
on new silk webs.
Gold mounted suspenders can be
found in stock at prices from $30 to
.$120 a pair. These perfectly plain,
simple suspenders with the simple
gold buckles, cost $38. A pair with
sapphires set in the buckles cost $55,
and another pair with eight small dia
monds in the buckles cost $120.
He's a Cuckoo.
Detroit Free Press.
This story was told recently at a
smoker given by the alumni of the
UTniversity of Michigan at Chicago.
"A young man and his wife not
long married,'' said the relator of the
incident, 'lived down on the South
Side where they had a pretty little
two story brick. One of their wedding
resents was a large clock which told
the hours and half by means of the
cuickoo 's ery instead of by the usual
chimes of the sounding of a bell. One
night the college fraternity of which
the man was a member, gave a ban
quet, and it was accordingly late
when lie arrived at the front door of
his home. He thought that discre
tion was the better part of valor,. so
that when li' got inside he began to
remove his shoes before going up the
stairs. Unfortunately he was not
very happy in- the execution of this
act, for ons of his shoes slipped and
made a noise that could be heaid all
over the house. A moment lat.er his
wife 's voice came from the head of
"'Is that you Charles '
" esh~ dear.'
"'What time is it, Charles'?'
'" 'Bout 12.'
"' 'And then,' said Charles, in tell
ing the incident afterwards, ' that
blamed clock began to cry out. But
it Cuckooed only three times, and I
had to stand there, like a fool and euc
koo the other nine.'

Kansas City Star.
During the trial of a breach of
promise case in the circuit court at
Kirkville, Mo., the defence undertook
to show that the prosecuting witness's
affections had not been altogether
cornered by the defendant. There
was evidence that one Roy Mailverne
had, once upon a time kissed her with
out a serious reprimand resulting.
Roy, a smart looking fellow of the
yoeman type, was called in rebuttal
and vigorously denied the imputation.
M. D). Campbell, on cross examination
drosily asked the witness:
"Roy, you didn't steal into the
kitchen, where Miss M. was mixmng
dough, slip up* behind her and- kiss
'No, sir! '' exclaimed the witness
" 'Roy, you didn 't steal into the

"No, sir; I didn't.''

audience began to titter.

observation, the witness failed to
reach the significance of the question.
