ANGRY AT McMASTER.
Southern Life Men Say State Insur
ance Commissioner Will be Held
News and Courier.
Columbia, March 30.-The revoca
tion of the license of the Southern
Life Insurance Company to do busi
ness in this State, which action was
taken by Commissioner MoMaster a
few days ago, has resulted in C. J.
Cooper, of Fayetteville, saying that
''at the proper time and in the pro
per manner, Commissioner McMaster
will be held responsible for his cow
ardly attack upon me.'"
Mr. McMaster was yesterday shown
this telegram, and said that he had no
comment to make. He thought from
the evidence submitted in the transfer
of the stock of the Southern Life In
surance Company to the Seminole Se
curities Company, tat his. remarks
were justified and that it was "high
finance'" and ''stock jobbing'"
throughout. The matter was left en
tirely to the judgment of the public.

some pictures of silver services which
have been presented to various battle
ships of the United States navy. The
pictures were brought here by Mr.

The South Carolina, one of Uncle
Sam's best battle -ships, will be pres
ented with silver service when she is
commissioned next December. The
launching of this boat took place at
Philadelphia 'last July, when Gover
nor Ansel was present with an official
party and the boat was christened by
Miss Ansel. At the session of the
legislature just ended Senator Sink
ler, of Charleston, introduced and
there was passed a joint resolution
carrying an apprepriation of $5,000
for a silver service for the South Car
olina. The commission has not yet
been appointed; the governor is ex
officio chairman; one member will be
the chairman of the finance commit

There will be a mcetin, of the

will be asked to be present and pres

will be commissioned in December and
it has -been suggested that it would
be a good idea for the presentation
of the silver service to take place in
South Caroli-na waters.
Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The attorney for the defense had
just completed the reading of his
hypothetical question. He looked at
the clock. It had taken him one hour
and 26- minutes. He looked at the
"Have you heard the question?'"
The witness nodded.
''And what is your answer'"
The witness wriggled uneasily.
"I guess I didn't just catch the
drift of it," he apologetically remark
ed, ''won't you please read it again."
And the presiding judge fell back
with a hollow groan.
