Washington, August 30.-"I an

of steamships from Triest to Charles.
ton, and I see no reason why such 4
movement should not be an entir(
success. Sitxy per cent of the cottor
crop of the country is needed ever3
year for export trade, regardless ol
how many cotton mills the countr3
may b:ild. Charleston is awake to the
situation and I see no reason why, if
the present plans are carried out, she
should not regain her enormous ex
port business formerly carried on."
This was part of the optimistic
statement made to The News and
Oourier's correspondent today by Ma
jor John M. Carson, chief of the bu
reau of manufactures, department of
commerce and labor, when told of
the visit of Baron von Pilis to Char
leston, -nd of the latter's assurance
to the business men of that city that
a permanent line of ships would be
inaugurated to ply between Charles
ton and Mediterranean ports by the
first of the coming year.
"That is what I have been trying
to get the business men of the South
to do for a "ong time," continued Mr.
Carson. "Not long ago I wrote to the
business organizations of practically
all of the South Atlantic cities asking
why they did not do something to es
tablish permanent steamship lines to
their ports. I only received one re
ply to my letters.
"I know that steamship lines will
take immigrants to Charleston-just
as many as tbe people want-because
it is their business to transport those
able to pay passage, but it is unrea
sonable to expect them to run ships
unless freight cargoes can be assured
"The Cunard people run a ship to
Savannah, and I have been trying to
interest business organizations in the
movement to have that line extend its
"There is no reason in the world
why the cotton crop of the south
should be shipped to New York, when
it can go just as well from Charleston.
This new Mediterranean line will, I
believe, tap the -Cunard Line at Nap
les for New York, going to Charles
"In a word there is not the least
reason why the plans of Baron von
Pilis to run ships regularly from
Triest to Charleston, carrying imni
grants to the latter port, should not
be an entire suecess, provided the peo
pie will arouse themselves to the nee
essity of securing the necessary re
turn cargoes. That would give Char
leston some of her former export
business and will probably result in
That city becoming one of the chief
ports of the South Atlantic 6tates."

Farm Labor Laws.
Editor Daily Mail:-So many o

D Great Sport That Used to Obtain in
According to a man who has lived
in Arkansas for thirty-five years, the
- most exciting hunts ever experienced
- were in the days when hogs ran wild
I in the -voodlands of the state, says
t the A'abama Gazette. Even a domes

7 they will retrograde to wild animals
if ailo-r-ed freedom of the woods, but
the ZArocity of the domestic swine is
mild compared to the ferocity of their
ances.crs of the wood.
T'i main things necessary to the
hunt of the wild hogs was a pack of
trained dogs, a fleet-footed horse that
could clear logs and stumps with a'
graceful leap and a rifle or a shot
gun. Fox hunting in England has
formed the basis for artistic pictures
and stories of both fact and fiction,
but hog hunting in Arkansas was a
faster and more dangerous game, it
is declared by those who know both.
Owing to the density of the forests
the hogs were hunted in broad day
light. The animals roamed the woods
at night, but during the day they
slept in the boggy places. The dogs
which were trained for the hunt chas
ed a head of the horsemen. The pe
culiar yelps of the dogs notified the
hunters when the animals had been
sizhted, and the trained horses at
once dashed *into a gallop.
In those days the woods were filled
with fallen trees. Sometimes the
canebrakes completely hid the ob
stru!t;on and horse and rider were
dashed without warning to the
ground. In order to run faster the
hogs would break for open plots in
the timber and then horses and dogs
would begin the final dash for the
The dogs were trained for the sole
purpose of hunting and they knew
the traits of their game. The dogs
never attacked singly, but in pairs.
When they caught up with a hog they
would run along by his side and both
dogs at the same moment would
grasp an ear. Sometimes one dog
would lose hold and this meant in
stant death to the other dog. With one
powerful jerk of the head the hog
would toss the dog in the air and then
rend him to pieces as he fell to earth.
During a hunt when a herd of hogs
were being pursued some of. the less
skillful dogs always lost their lives.
The hogs when finally driven to
bay made one final stand. They hud
dled into a circle, all tails together.
In every direction there was a hog's1
snout peinting. At this critical stage
of the hunt the dogs would circle
round and round and the hunters
without dismounting would fire on the
animals. =Large parties of hunters
were known to kill as many as .a
hundred hogs ifl a day.
Thee wild hogs, it appears, were
wild fromn instinct. Efforts to tame
the pigs, which were sometimes cap
tured alive, proved about as futile as
the absolute domesticating of a Bei
gal tiger. These young hogs could
be penned up, fed and more or lessJ
petted, but it was only a question off
time until some morning the farmer.
would awake to find t'ne pen broken
and the hogs escaped to the wilder
ness of the woods,
In the forminvhvlere the oaks were
abundant there would in some years
be bumper crops of acorns. The wild
hog preferred the aeorn to any other
food. The animals that fattened on
these nuts possessed a flavor of meat
which is foreign to the .corn and slop
fed hogs of the domestic variety to-*
day. These hogs, it is elaimed, were
not killed~ wantonly, but were used
for food. In those parts of Arkansas
where the wild animals were plenti
ful the smokehouses of the fartners
bulgedl with juiey hams.
A inan who lives in Little Rock 'and
who is the owner of a ihrge cotton
Splantation, was a hog hnnter thirty
years ago. He alniost lost his life
once. by jumping from his horse and
attempting to kill a large hog by cut
tting its throat while the dogs held
on to the ears.
BAs he jmped from his horse, the
Scharger frightened at something and
instead of 'standing by as susal, ran
toff through the woods. The hunter
slashed fhe neek of the hog, but did
not drive deep enough to cut the jug
BThe wound only maddened the al
ready infuriated animal, which turn

to the ears of the hog. Although this
