BOAl) ELECTS F. 31. 3I1SO.
Confederate Home Has New Superinl
tendent-Dr. Weston Physician.
Columbia, Jan. 27.-The Confederate
infirmary commission, meeting today
in the'supreme court room, elected F.
M. Mixson, of this city, as superin
tendent of the Confed'erato Home,
which is located he--e, to take the place
of Capt. W. D. Sta:1:ng, who has held
the positio-n most acceptably since the
home was erected. Dr. William Wes
ton, of this city, was elected as phy
sician of the home.
This was the first meeting of new
commission appointed several days
ago. The organizatica n.eeting was
d with Col. R. A. Thomps in. of Wai
harla, acting as chairman. H. W. Rich
rdson was elected permanent chair
man of the board. The board will to
morrow inspect the Confederate home

As to Clemson College.
News and Courier.
It was unfortunate for Clemson col
ege that it came into existence as a
. Plass institution. Born in the heat of
factionalism, it has had a career need
lessly fretful, and' substantial as have
been its achievements its usefulness
has -not been as etensive as it ought
zp have been.
The changes which the legislative
0ommittee recommendi for Clemson
college are not -novel. They were urg
. ed, the more important of them, prior
to Clemson' establishment. Since that
time they have been discussed repeat
edly. The legislative committee states
strongly the arguments 'supporting
them, but of -larger importance still is
the fact that there is reason to be
liev'e that that part of our citizenship
ost directly interested in Clemson
Come to recognize the fact that the
best interests of the college and of the
State demand that they be made.
The argument that an institution
pported by the State should be con
lled by the State can not be over
rown. Nor will sensible men dis
agree with the proposition that in the
cpnduct of a public institution .such
as Clemson col.lege the money for its
maintenance should be appropriatedI
from the State treasury to meet its
needs as definitely established instead
of regulating its expen.ditures to ac
cord with a large and indeterminate
sincome. It is not a question of wheth
-er the.$200,000 whict Clemson now re
eleives ann.ually from~ the State is ex
pended wisely ar d economically.
There may be no 'vasto or extrava
gance whatever in the employment of
this large fund. T'he point of import
ance is as to whether a considerable
(part 'of this money cou-ld not be util
ized to- far greater public advantage
The report of the legislative investi
gating committee is an interesting doc
ument.. Its essential readableness will
insure a wide hearing for the import
ant ,recommendations which it makes.
SWe hope that it will have the 'effect of
moving the legislature to action.
BLEASE ON THE CAPITOL.

Gov. Blease sent to the general as

Mrs. Annie Schmitt Dead.
Augusta Chronicle, 26th.
Mrs. Annie Schmitt died at her resi
dence in this ci'ty last night.
The funeral services will be held
from the ChurCh of the Sacred Heart
this afternoon at 3.30 o'clock, and the
interment will be in the city cemetery.
Mrs. Schmitt was one of the old and
best known of the citizens of Augus
ta. Some 50 years ago she left her
native home in Loraine, Germany, to
become an Augustan.
Bedng a woman of charming person
ality, and of sablimity of character,
he soon became th' center of a cir
cle of friends, which steadily increased
as her days in the city were length
ened, until at the time of her death,
there are few wVho have not known
and loved this saint-ly woma'n.
She was a woman of rare Christian
virtues, and in her church life she
was ever a potent factor for good;
while sin ~her private life, her virtues
shone al-l the oriighter because of the
unassuming modesty of her profession,
and the quietness with which she did
her gootl works, not letting her ,1'eft
hand know what her right 'hand was
doing. Both St. Patrick's and the Sac
red Heart churches will miss her for
she was most active and earnest in the
extension work of both congregations.
Mrs. Schmitt is survived by but two
children, both daughters, who live in
Augusta, Mrs. Oscar J. Dorr, and Miss
Julia R. Schmitt.
Two Faithful Servants.
Albert Nance, who served Gov. An
sel so faithfully for the 'past four
years as porter, has had a long politi
cal career. He is from Newberry and
was recommended to Gov. Ansel by
well known Democrats of that county.
Nance, for that is the name that he
was always called, says that be is a
76 Democrat. When Gov. Blease was
elected Nance refused to apply for re
appointment, saying that 'he would
rather retire with Gov. Ansel. He has
secured a job as po'rter in the senate..
Gov. Ansel -liked Nancie, who was al
ways faithful in his duties about the
office. Gov. Ansel gave him a most
Another faithful servant of Gov. An
eel was George White, the coachman.
White is growing old and has been a
coachman for 50 years. He .returned
to Greenville with G-ov. Ansel. He has

CLAIS BILL HE~LD UP'.
"Can Not" lie Passed Thtic Sessian
Ariects the South.I
Washington, Jan. 23.-Thousands of
dollars, which would otherwise be
distriuted in many sections of the
South. will be held up until the next
session of congress, because of the
fact that a decision has been reached
here that the omnibus claims bill,
wvhich amounts to about $3,000,000,
can not be passed at this time. There
is no Statn in the South that wouldt
fail to be benefited by the passage of
this bill and the churches, lodges, so
ieties and individual persons to be
hel'>d by it will be disappointed at
th-e decision reached.
Lack of tire. it is said. is the reason
asignedi; but it is probably due to the
fact that there has always meen doubt
if a Republican cor.gress would pass
it or any si.milar measurie that wouldf
