PLEASURE ENDS IN TRAGEDY.
ight Students Drown When Boat
Goes Under-Four of Them
Wilkesbarre, Pa., May 12.-Eight
high school students, six girl and two
boys, lost their lives today while boat
ing on what is known as the Old Pa
PV Mill dam, at Huntington mills,
about 20 miles below this city. The I
dead are: Maud Sutliffee, aged 171
years; Carolyn Koonz, aged 16; Ruth
Bonham, aged 18; Iris Davenport,
aged 16; Rachel Thompson, aged 16;
Madeline Good, aged 17; Ray Dodson,
Twelve students of the Huntington
high school obtained two boats at the
noon hour and started for a row about
the dam. The dam is nearly half a
mile in width, aFd when the two craft
had reached thf centre of the body of
water it was noticed that one of them
bad sprung a leak. The two boats
were then pulled together by the
young men in the party and an effort
was being made to transfer the girls
from the leaky boat to the safe craft.
The last one of the party had success
fully set foot in the boat when it be
gan to sink under the weight of the
Hero's Vain Efforts.
The girls were helpless to save
themselves and the boys of the party,
with the exception of Dodson, beiug
expert swimmers, struck out for the
shore, which all reached in safety.
Minich, in the excitement, it is pre
sumed, thought that all the young wo
men had succeeded in reaching land.
He had no sooner gained the bank
than he notiecd the girls hanging to
the rapidly sinking boat. He dash
ed into the water and swam swiftly
to the water-filled craft. Only two
of the girls were clinging to the boat
the others having gone down for the
last time. Seizing Miss Davenport,
Minich again started for the shore,
but the exertion was too much for
the gallant lad and the two went
down together, when they were with
in a stone's throw of the bank. All
the bodies were recovered.

Question Decided by Methodist Con
That Name be Changed.
Asheville, N. C., May 13.-The gen
eral conference of the Methodist Epis
copal Church, South, at its session to
day transacted considerable business,
the reports of the committee on Epis
copacy and the committee on revisals
being received and acted upon.
Report No. 1, as submitted by the
committee on Episcopacy, contained
memorial tributes to the following
J. C. Granberry, W. W. Duncan, C.
B. Galloway, A. Coke Smith, . .
Tigert and Seth Ward. By vote of the
conference the report was put upon
its immediate passage.
Report No. 2, of the committee on
Episcopacy, recommending that sev
en Bishops be elected, was carried by
a large majority.

The committee on revisal recom
mended that the name of the church
be changed to the Methodist church.
and the report was passed to the cal
endar. A minority report was sub
mitted, requesting that the name be

few days for debate, and the general
impression is that the report of the
minority recommending that the

cdnference, three-fourths of whose
members must endorse it before it can,

Would Check Divorce Evil.
A resolution was referred to the
committee on temperance and other
moral and social questions, asking
that the bishops .be requested to ap
point a commission of five to act in
conjunction with the national com
mission on uniform divorce laws to
check the growing divorce evil. The
reports of the committee on temper
ance and other soial and moral
questions, on the subject of the use of
tobacco, brought about considerable
discussion. The minority report,
which compels young men entering
the ministry to abstain from tobacco,
was lost by three votes. The major
ity report, which recommended that
young men entering the 'ministry be
advised not to use tobacco, but which
recommended no legislation against
it, prevailed by a small majority.
Many were present at- today's ses
sion to hear further reports'Nrom the
committee of Episcopacy, especially
that part of the report which will rec
ommend the superannuating of Bish
op H. C. Morrison. tI is flatly stated
that the bishop does not desrie this'
relationship and will plead his cause
from the floor.
The laymen held a mepting tonight
at the auditorium, at which promi

WANT ACTION ANNULLED.
E.dgefield's Magisterial Candidates
Dislike New Plans.
Edgefield, M,Y 1.--The action .of
the recent county beflnediatic conven
tion in eliminating the iidiflinition of
magistrates from the -priniaty is
thought by many to have been a nii&.
take and is causing such dissatisfac
tion 'that petitions are being gotten
up to be presented to the executive
committee, asking that the conven
tion's action be annulled.
Apart from any other consideration,
it has been a custom iII this coumty,
that has ripened into law, that can
didates announce early and before the
convention meets and guided by this
rule many candidates for magistrates'
office had announced and paid in their
money, with the full expectation that
they would run to the'finish,' and to
summarily cut them off, they say, is
not treating them with due considera
APPEA L IN "BLACK LIST" CASE.
~iton Result of Alleged "Black list"
Sent Out by Granby Mills Affect
ing Discharged Employees.
Columbia, May 13.--What will
prove, perhaps, the most important
case that has been before the supreme
court in the last ten years, was argu
ed today, the Granby Cotton mills, of
this city, appealing from the verdict
of the lower court in the Rhodes
black list suit. Olin M. Rhodes, as
explained in today's News and Cour
ier, was granted damages to the
amount of $7,000, two thousand 'dol
lars of which were actual damages
and $5.@( punitive damages, because
of alegedi iF jury to himi by a list sent
out by th'.e Gra.nby mijis, in which it
was staed that hie was one of the
Judge Memminger from $10,000.
There were five sets of written at
guments presented to the Court to
day in addition to oral arguments by
counsel. William Henry Parker, of
Charleston, is of counsel for the mills,
as are also Shand & Shand, and Lyles
& Lyles, of this city. Messrs. Logan
& Edmunds represent the plaintiff.
Rhodes, also Clark & Clark, of this,
LARGE AMOUNT INVOLVED.
Difference in. Coften Tare Figures
Columbia, May 12.-That $1,800,000
Is the amount involved in the test
case that will be brought before the
supreme court Monday on habeas cor
pus proceedings, in connection with
the alleged violation at the Cotton
Tare act, makes this case assume tre
mendous proportions in South Caro
Heretofore the amount of tare al
lowed on cotton was 20 pounds to the
bale. But under the enactment of
1910 the 6 per cent that would be,
allowed, if the act is declared con
stitutional, would mean 30 pounds to
each 500-pound bale, a difference of
10 pounds to the bale.
Who will pay this difference? is the
question that is now agitating both
farmers and buyers of cotton. There
was a 1,200,000-bale crop in South
Carolina last year. By adding 10
pounds of tare to each bale the
amount involved is 12,000,000 pounds,
the money involved on a basis of 15
cents .per pound is $1,800,000.
Other States do not have statutes
providing for the amount of tare, but'
20 pounds is the trade custom, it is
stated. The declaring of the 1910 Cot
ton Tare act constitutional would put
South Carolina out of line with other
Southern States, acording to cotton
The result of this would be that
some one, either the farmer or the
cotton buyer, would have to pay for
this additional 10 pounds of cotton
tare. That the farmer would finally
pay for it is a reasonable deduction,
because the possibility is that thei
price of cotton in this State would!
be about one-quarter cent lower per
pound than in other States in order
to make up for the difference in the
It is figured that instead of six
yards of tare there would be required
about twelve yards to make'up the ad
ditional 10 pounds weight, this being
based on the assumption that a far
mer selling his cotton is going to put
on the additional tare. This would
mean, it is stated, that the men sell
ing bagging would get the benefit of
the additional tare used. It would
not necessarily increase the amount
of ties used, only the bagging. The
more than $1,000,000 involved under
this act would very probably go to
the bagging manufacturers, and the
farmer and cotton buyers, and more
than likely the farmer, would stand
the additional expense.
It is understood that the test case
is brought by a large local firm of
cotton dealers, M. C. Heath & Co., and
Mr. W. G. Mullins has been ai-ested
on a warrant sworn out charging him
with violating the Tare act, as ex
plained in today's News and Courier.'
The case will come up Monday in the
