News and Courier.
Columbia, September 22.-Commis
sioner Watson officially denied this
afternoon that there was any. friction
between Clemson college and his de
partment with reference to the remov
al of the feedstuffs laboratory from
Clemson to this city. An announce-.
ment was made this morning at the
office of the commissioner of agricul
ture, commerce and industries that the
feedstuffs laboratory would be moved
Following recent efforts to secure
quarters in this city for the chemical
work of the feedstuffsi department,
there arose rumors to the effect that
Clemson college and the department of
agriculture had had some misunder
standing with reference to the work
that was being done at the Agricultur
al college. These rumors were set at
rest when the correspondence bear-1
ing on the matter was given out to
The chemical laboratory will be lo
cated on the upper floor of the old
State dispensary building in this city.
This will make the whole work cen
tralized in this city. The clerical work
has been taken up with tle analysis

office and the headquarters of the
whole department will be located in

To Prof. W. M. Riggs, acting presi
dent of Clemson, Prof. Harper wrote:
"I am forwarding to your office a
letter just received from Commissioner
E. J. Watson. Commissioner Watson
states that he wishes to move the of
fice and laboratory of the State feed
stuff chemist from where it is located
at this college to Columbia. He
states to the effect that the relation
which has existed between this station
and his department has been most
cordial, and that he is simply. making
this change to. facilitate the work of
his department. I can fully under
stand Mr. Watson's attitude and can
see good reasons for his wishing to
tnake this change, and therefore rec
ommend that this part of our co-opera-.
tive work with his department be dis
continued. The time of the chemist
has been sotaekn up with the analysis
of feedstuffs that the station has got
ten practically no assistance from
him; therefore, the transfer of this
laboratory to Columbia will not hin
der in the least the work of the sta
tion. Our relation with Commission
er Watson and his chemist has been
mnost satisfactory and cordial."

"Acting under the provisions of Sec
tion 9, of the Commercial Feedstuffs
act, and because of my earnest desire
to have the feedstuffs analytical work
identified with the station, you will re
call that when the law became effec
tive I named as State chemist a gra
duate of Clemson college, largely up
on your recommendation, as State
feedstuff chemist, and in accordance
with the option given me requested
you to permit the location of the labo
ratory work at the station. In this
request you promptly and heartily ac
quiesced, and the feedstuff chemist has
been accorded every aid and courtesy
both by yourself - and the college au
thorities. This I assure you has been
most sincerely appreciated, and both
the chemist and myself are deply sen
sible of the aid and assistance render-;
ed by you, the college board, the
president and those in? charge of the

deeply regret to find it absolutely nec
essary to withdo ' this warLK from the
station, but the exigencies of the
State's business in the matter of the
proper enforcement of the commercial.
feedstuff law are such that this is un'
avoidable. The work has developed to
such~ an extent that it is an abfolute
necessity to have the State chemist
and the laboratory in close daily touch
with the inspection work and the com
missioner. I havn thoroughly explain
ed the situatior to members of the,
board and to the president of the col
lege and this letter is written in ac
"The laboratory will henceforward
be located in the office building of the
former State dispensary, and I have
directed the State chemist to report
to me at Columbia.
"Again thanking you and the col

always most freely given. expressing
the hope that there may never be the
suggestion of a rupture of the most
cordial relations existing at all times.
and assuring you, that, contrary to my
earnest desire, only the best inter
ests of the State and the exigencies
take this step believe me,
"Very sincerely yours,
"E. J. Watson, Commissioner."
From Clemson's Acting President.
Prof. Riggs to Col. Watson:
"Prof. Harper has forwarded to me
your letter of Spetember 14, in which
you explain the necessity of remov

"The law creating the inspection
provides that 'upon request of the
commissioner' the analysis shall be
carried out under the supervision of
the South Carolina experiment station,

"Of course we could not, if we
would, interpose any objection to the
removal of the work, and it is gratify
ing to know that in complying with the
law we have done our part to your
entire satisfaction. Certain it is that
we have spared no effort to help
make the work the success it has been.
"It shall always be our desire to
make this college useful to your valu
ed department, and I trust that when
ever we can be of assistance you will
not hesitate to make your wishes
"Assuring you that your action in
this particular matter will not in any
way disturb the cordial relations that
have existed, and now exist between
this college and your department, and
with assurances of official and per
sonal esteem, believe me,

"W. M. Riggs, Acting President."
Harper Regrets Change.
Another letter to Col. Watson from
"I am in receipt of your letter of
September 14, and note that you are
going to transfer the labortory of your
feedstuff chemist from this place to
Columbia. I note your statement that
the proper enforcement of the com
mercial feedstuff law is such as to
make this change necessary. I can
fully realize your reasons for making
this change and while I regret to see
Mr. Summers leave our community, I
know that it will be more satisfactory
for you to have him near your office.
I have forwarded your letter to Act

statement has revived interest in the
attack upon Col. Moore, nominaed to
succeed Gen. Boyd, at the Laurens
meeting this summer by an opposing
candidate for adjutant general, Capt.
J. M. Richardson, of Aiken.
Capt. Richardson said he was in
formed that Col. Moore -had promised,
if elected, to appoint Capt. Babb his
Col. Moore contented himself with
the reply that he hoped his choice for
the position would meet with the ap
proval of the National Guard of South

Babb actively furthered Co!. Moore's
interests in the campaign.
Capt. Babb was among the visitors
to the adjutant general's office Thurs
