CONGRESSMAN A. F. LEVip.
Talk About Growth and Devvlobment
of Piedmont but Not About Sen
Anderson is a fine town," re
marked Congressman A. F. Lever of
Lexington, to the Dily Mail, as he
sat in the Chipuola barber shop this
morning waiting to have his whiskers
trimmed. Mr. Lever s in the city to
attend the marriage of his frieni, Sol
ieitor G. B. Timmerman, and Miss
Sullivan this afternoon.
"Anderson is the finest town in the
state," keplied an Anderson man who
heard thte remark.
"I do believe that is a fact," re
plied Mr. Lever. Then he asked many
questions about. the 'size of the city,
the population, ote., and marvelled
greatly at the things the Anderson
man told him.
And you have comparatively no
railroad facilities," exclaimed Mr.
Levier. "What wouldn't you do if you
had the same railroad facilities that
other towns have?''
Mr. Lever has served two terms in
congress, and has just been elected to
a third term without opposition,
which shows his great popularity in
his district. When he was first elect
ed he Nxas the youngest member of
the national house of representatives,
and was facetiously termed the ''baby
congressman." His mental powers
were acute, however, and 'he soon
made himself felt in whatever things
he wanted to deal with. He is now one
of the most active as well as one of
the most useful of the South Carolina
There have been some rumors that
Congressman Lever may be a candi
date for the United States senate two
years from now. He did not discuss
that subject today, however.
Congressnan Lever is well known
to many Anderson people and has
many friends here. le delivered an
address at the big Farmers Union pic
nic at the Fair (rounds two years ago,
and his address was one of the best

addresses were plentiful.

HAS ROOSEVELT FLUNCKED?
Rumors That Those Negroes Who Ca:
Prove an Alibi May Reenlist
Causes Mudh Comment.
The State Bureau,
1417 G. Street, N. W.,
Washington, Nov. 24.
Opinion here is divided as to wheth
or the president has flunked in the ne
gro troops disbanding order when Ii
announces now that all of those whi
can prove that they had no knowledg4
of the affair may reenlist. It is saii
that the president knows nothing nov
that lie did not know when the ordei
was issued except that the ngroe,
and several potent Republican clubE
are raising the very dickens about it
It is, therefore, being asked why haf
there been any modification of the or.
der. The 112 page document giving
the reasons, as shown by the reportE
of Gen. Garlington, and the other in
spectors who looked into the matter
makes ''mighty interesting reading,'
and it is clear from these reports thal
the president had good grounds foi
his action. Possibly had lie issuice
this document along with his first or
der to disband, some of this hullabal
too might have been saved. But that
is aside now. The hullaballoo haF
colie, is even now here, and the pres
ident seems inclined to pacify the neg
_rrocs aid the Rel)ublican"clubs. Thisi
is the view being expressed by somc
n1 Washington. Others there are Who
leclare thie president stands pat.
But whatever difference of opinion
lhere be upon this question there is no
liffernee of opinion so far heard that
he dismissal order was carefully tim
d. And the political wiseascres, the
'figgerers'' and analysists are show
ng that numbers of Republicans re
