-ALDED COLUMBIA EAGLES.
A Test Case Will Be Made of It.
Unlawful Storing Charged.
Columbia State, 11th.
The police yesterday afternoon made
a raid on the club of t'e Eagles' aerie
at 1516 Main street. Quite a lot of
excitement was ereated as the lodga
has a membership of 350. and among
the members are a number of promi
nent citizens and public officials, in
cluding the congressman from this
district, the State senator from this
county, the police recorder and a
number of police officeis.
The raid was made upon infornia
tion that liquor was being stored in
violation of the law. Chief Catheart
stated that he 'had made no case as to
the illegal sale of whiskey, but would
insist before the magistrate that the
section of the law forbidding storage
was being violated. The officials of
the club declared last night that they
welcome the investigation, for they
contend that they 'have complied with
the letter of the law strictly and, as
there has been so much talk about
what cloubs have been doing, they
wish to get the matter settled with
reference to their own conditions.
Chief Cathcart took charge of 1,000
bottles of beer and 100 quarts of li
quor. As notice was given that the
club's attorney, Senator F. H. Wes
ton, would bring claim and delivery
proceeedings to seeare the return of
the stuff seized, Chief Catheart did
not ha-al the seized beer and whiskey
to the police station, but -locked it in
a room and sealed it, pending the de
eision by the magistrate. A careful
inventory of the seizure was made.
Chief Catheart stated that the officers
of the club who were summoned were
Harry S. Fox, president, and George
In t1he same raid the police visited
a club in the postoffice block, which
a short time ago secured a charter
under the name of the "Ravens" At
this place were found 96 bottles of
beer and seven pints of whiskey.-The
manager of this club' was L. B.
EDUCATORS AT SALUDA.
Eight Hundred Persons Present at
Rally.-Addresses on the Needs
of the Schools of the State.
Saluda, August 10.--The education
al rally for Saluda County was held
here to-day. Fully eight hundred
people were present, the largest gath
ering by far to greet the educational
party now going through the State.
Superintendent Sample presided,
having literally left a bed of illness
to be present. The Rev. Z. De Loach
opened the exercises with prayer. IThe
best of order prevailed, and never
were speakers given closer attention.
Scores of trusteees and dozens of
teachers were in the audience and a
new spirit and interest in matters ed
ucational will undoubtedly result.
Mrs. W. L. Daniel urged the import
ane of better country schools as a
matter of life and death in this
State. In a most earnest manner she
pleaded for better buildings, better
equipment, better surroundings for
the children in the homes and in the
schools, longer terms, interior decora
tions, libraries, asserting that the
best was none too good for tVhe coun
try boys and girls. She pointed with
pride to the fact that Providence, one
of the schools in this county, won a
thundred dollar prize in the contest
for greatest improvement last year.
Prof. W. K. Tate was glad to talk
to country people, for he was born
and raised way out in the country and
knew all about the advantages and
disadvantages of country schools. He
emphasized 'the necessity for super
vision of the se'hools, pointing out that
<>ften a turn in politics placed men un
fit morally and educationally at the
heads of the county schools. Public
spiritedness in the community was
urged and petty quarrels and differ
ences depreciated. Co-operation was
the key to success.
Prof. Ira Williams gave a most sen
sible talk along the line of the kind
of education needed in the rural dis

of Education Swearingen was pre

PRESIDENT DRAWS APPLAUSE.
Taft's Good Golf Play Moves Aid to
Cheer-Milwaukee Not For
Beverly, Mass., Aug.10.-President
Taft has declared that his idea of an
ideal vacation is to do the same thing
over and over again every day. Con
sequently he played golf this morning,
attended to a little officJal business
after luncheon and late this afternoon
had a long motor ride with Mrs. Taft.
T e is a stiekler for sys
tem and 'le is applying it to his vaca
tion. The only change is that some
days he plays good golf and on other
days he does not. Today was one of
the good days and he went the round
of the 18 holes at Myopia in 101, de
feating John Hays Hammond, his op
ponent, and "topside" man in the
summer golf classic, by 2 up. The
Myopia course is the most difficult the
president ever had tackled and he was
delighted all this afternoon at the ex
cellent showing he had made. The.
president made one of the most diffi
cult holes of the links in two. Capt.
Butt, his aide saw and applauded the
president's long drive and accurate
putt. He did not remember the num
ber of the hole, being on thie links for
the first time himself, and having his
hands full in defeating his opponent,
Capt. D. Chamberun.
The president today added Milwau
kee to the itinerary of his Western
trip. In order 4o include the city made
famous by a beverage that prohibi
tion Beverly does not know, it was
necessary to cut out the brief stops
that 1had been scheduled at Madison,
the home of Senator LaFollette, one
of the tariff insurgents, and at Por
tage. Mr. Taft has stopped at Madi
son twice during the last two years,
and as the pressure for a visit to Mil
waukee was very strong, he decided
in favor of that city. After stopping
at LaCrosse. the president will pro
ceed to Winona, the home of Chair
man James Tawney of the house ap
propriations committee, where he will
spend all of the evening of the 17th.
. The president also included in the
itinerary of. his trip down the Missis
sippi river, which begins at St. Louis,
October 25, a stop at Bafon Rouge,
Don. Caesar A. Barranco, chancel
lor of the Cuban legation, which is es
tablished at Manchester for the sum
mer, caused no end of excitement this
afternoon by a visit to the executive
offices. Outside the mailman and a
few correspondents there are few call
ers at tihe offices these days, and the
appearanace of the distinguished
looking Cub,an diplomat immediately
started reports that trouble in his
home island had caused Mr. Barranco
to seek an early appointment with the
president for the Cuban minister,
Carlos Garcia Velez. The minister is
leaving Manchester next week for a
trip to the Pacific coast and the pres
ident may have a chat with him be
fore his departure.
Mrs. Taft continues daily to im
Trove in health.
