The following is the preface of Col.
Brooks's new book, which will be read
with interest by those who wish to
know the true history of the war days:
"I am a Jeff Davis man and, there
fore a Confederate soldier who lived
and honored our president-the broad
minded people of the North hated him
no more than they did the humblest
private soldier of Lee's incomparable;
army. But he is hated by the narrow
minded Northerner just because he
was our president. Take the coward
ly and brutal Miles, who put him in
irons at Fortress Monroe, as an ex
ample of Northern hatred.
"It is true we lost our president and
cur flag, but whatever else we may
have lost in that struggle, we gave the
world Robert E. Lee, and he led an
army with a record of valor that will
preserve its memory as long as the
world counts courage and self-sacri
fice among the noblest traits of men
-which goes to prove that the princi
ples for which we fought will never
die. . --. .
"How can we forget the old bullet
torn flag whose blue cross had been
triumphantly borne aloft for years at
the cost of so much blood and valor
shall we Confederates who, by the
mercy of God, have been spared to
this day, not heroes make-those who
have fallen asleep, some on the bat

been turned into the ploughahare.

"Our women in the war would sing
songs to the soldiers while dressing
their wounds, and the four following
lines show exactly how they felt dur

'''Stand firmly by your cannon

But keep your powder dry.'
"Here is a picture of the Confederate

Of those who stood beside the sol

to receive sketches. He wishes to give
full credit to the noble part played by
the women in the war.

Washington, Aug. 25.-Two Ashe
ville revenue officers have succeeded es
In bringing to task the owners of a er
still that is being irregularly operat- th
ed almost within the shadow of the VC
dome of the United States capitol. The w
still is a registered one, but the offi
cers discovered an employe in the act
of transporting from the warehouse 1
connected with it a barrel of corn W
whiskey on which the internal revenue ti
tax had not been paid. The result was'DE
that the employe and the booze spent to
the night at the station house, and b
the next morning the owners of the
place were added to the quarry and er
taken before the United States com

Revenue Officers James A. Pierce.:
and L. F. Hansborough, who are well
known in Asheville as contraband D
booze chasers. were the men who did
the trick in Washington. The owners
of the still, who are implicated in the
affair, came to Washington some time
ago from Louisville, Ky., and for some
time they have been turning out 100
gallons of corn whiskey a day. They
have had a ready market for their pro- w
duct. Most of it has been handled in
accordance with fthe revenue laws, but
the office of the commissioner of in
ternal revenue became suspicious, and! A
the arrests caused by the agents of the
department were the rsult.
Th revenue officers stationed them
selvis near the distillery in question
and watched operations for some time. W
A negro driver in the employ of the
concern, which Is called the Capital
Supply company, drove up to the back T1
door of the warehouse. One of the
managers of the company rolled a bar
rel into his wagon, the driver pulled
the curtain of his wagon down, and N
drove off. Then the officers took a
hand, and discovered that the barrel
was filled with corn whiskey, and that T
it had no revenue stamps attached. The
negro claimed that he did not know
the contents of the barrel, but was
only obeying orders of his employers.
He wan locked up, however, and 'faiv
ed examination, being committed tQ

ed and will be arraigned tomorrow
before the commissioner.

During Speech of Attorney Gen

Laurens, Auust 26.-Today's meet

dent of the State campaign thus far,
when Attorney General Lyon was the
object of threats and an extremely =
hostile demonstration on the part of '

of W. TI. Cren? Whoni Lyon charged
with responsibility tdf an editorial in
the Laurensville Herald reflecting on
his, Lyon's, honesty. Lyoui begai his
speech by stating that his principal
object in coming to Laurens today was
to reply to the editorial agack which
he would prove maliciously false, and
calling the name of W. T. Crews in
connection with its authorship.
Spectators liount Stand.
A few minutes after beginning his
speech, and while on the subject of
the editorial, W. T. Crews, his broth
er, or some one near the stand, called
out "read those other letters." Lyon
replying with emphasis, "I'm going to
read all about you." J. T. Crews, a
brother of W. T. Crews, then mounted~
the stand, jumping over the side rail
and attempted to strike Lyon, but was
prevented from doing so by by-stand- te:
ers, Lyon having assumed a defensive a
attitude and awaiting the attack. Pu
Ienry Wright, leaning over the rail- of
ing in an effort to get on the stand, dt
cursed the attorney general, who Ico
struck at him, but missed; then Lyon N
kicked him in the side through the
space between the rail and floor. By C
this time those near the stand were in ta
a state bordering on frenzy, the en- d
tire audience being utterly confused. t
The stand was crowded with people, IE.
some continuing to make threats -
against Lyon and others assuring him
of their friendship. For nearly five
minutes pandemonium reigned, the ,
situation being so tense as to make -
the spectators shudder as to the pos
