SHERMAN SATES "SHIP SUBSIDY."
Tice President Breaks Three Ties in
The Senate For First Time in
Wasington, Feb. 2.-For the first
time in the history of the government,
the vice president of the United States
today exercised his prerogative of
a-14ng a vote to break ties in con
w-et-on with three successive roll
calls in the senate. By the two first
of these votes he saved from impend
ing ecat the ocean mail, or ship
subsid ybill, and by the third forced
an adjournment of the senate on a
Tote having direct bearing on the res
olution looking to the election of sen
ators by direct vote of the people.
The vote on the ship subsidy bill's
passage, both in committee of the
whole and in the senate proper, stood
39 yeas -and 39 noes, and on adjourn
ment 37 yeas to 37 noes. On all three
occasions the vice president voted in
New Senator Abse'nt.
Another notable occurrence in con
nection with the vote on the ship sub
sidy billI wa, the absence of the new
Democratic senator from West Vir
ginia, laCrence W. Watson, who had
taken lids seat early in the day as the
successor to Senator Elkins. Mr. Wat
son was in the senate chamber for
only a few minutes during the session
and voted on only one roll call. This
'rote was cast on an amendment offer
ed by Mr. Shively, of Indiana, regulat
ing the expenditures which may be
3made under the terms of the bill. The
new West Virginia senator cast his
vote in the affirmative, thus indicating
is opposition to the bill.
The report on this roll call was not
so close as to render material the
presence or absence of any senator
and no notice was taken of the fact
that Mr. Watson was not present.
Would HaTe Defeated B.1.
After the final result became
known, the opponents of the bill, in
cluding all the Democrats, realized
that Mr. Watson's absence had pre
vented the defeat of the bill. He was
the only Democrat present during any;
of the roll calls, whose vote was not
cast against the measure.

We went down l-ast week to Newber
ry in the interest of the Presbyterian.
Brother Carson and Mrs. Carson took
care of use while in the city. Brother
Carson thinks thvt the lines have fal
len to him in a pleasant place. He~
likes the place and the people, and we
heard most pleasant things said about
him and Mrs. Carson by the people of
the town. Dr. Halfacre was Quite kinid
to us. which we appreciated. Dr. Half
* ~ acre itroduced us to President K~in
ard of the .Commercial bank. We
found him possessing a.n interestng'
personnel and withal a most affable
gen,tleman. The Kinards were famil
ar names to me in boyhood days, as I
so often heard them spoken of by'
parents who knew the large family
connection when living in Newberry.
It was a pleasure 'to drop in and see
Mr. and Mrs. M. A. Carlisle and to:
find them in good spirits. We have
always enjoyed visiting this home. We
were pleased 'to find Mrs. McClintock
more vigorous than we had expected
and interested in all the work of the
church. It was a pleasure likewise to
meet again Mr. and Mrs. Parr. The
fa~mily connection here again carries
us back to our parents. Mr. Parr is:
now 'president of one of the Newberry
banks. At the National bank we met
Mr. Henry Cannon, assistant cashier,
and a r.ising young business man. We
found Mr. Foster Mar4iin busy as see-.
retary and treasurer helping to or-:
ganize and get started off the new fac
tory at Newberry.
Drs. Harms and C.romer inquired:
ahent tY~ Due Wcst ~w'c'ns. N'::
berry college held the contest the
night before to select a representative
for the Oratorical contest at Green
wood. Dr. Harms hopes that they will
win this year. He thinks that they
have some good speakers. Dr. Crom
er is an elegant gentleman .and we
would like to see him governor of
South Carolina. He is the Woodrow
Wilson kind of a statesman. We heard
his addriess delivered before the bal
association at Columbia on last Fri
day night very highly spoken of. HE
is one of the cleanest and mcst able
men in South Carolina.
On Friday afternoon we ran down to
Prosperity to .do some work for the
paper. Mr. Geo. Brown took us in
his nice turnout over the town and
ar6und to see his school buildng, of
which he is very proud. It cost $6,
000. Mr. Brown is quite an aggressive
and progressive teacher. The enroll
ment of the school is 150. There are
seven teachers. A number of board
ing pupils, some coming a distance of
25 miles. There are play grounds for
the boys who engage in tennis, base
ball, and football, and for the girls
where they play tennis and basket
ball. Mr. Brown is starting a library
and a museum. He will approciate
gifts for each *of these departments.
During the year the following prom
inent men will address the pupils of
the school and the citizens of the
town: Dr. Mitchell, of South Carolina
university; Drs. Harms and Cromer,
of Newberry college; Superi.ntendent
E. J. Watson, Dr. Snyder, Dr. J. I. Mc
Cain, Dr. Mayer, (on tuberculosis),
Prof. Hand, Superintendent H. L.
Dean, of Newberry, and others. Each
year the pupils engage in a contest in
April. The K. of P. give a medal to
the girls for recitation work and Col.
I. H. Hunt, of Newberry, gives a medal
for the best oration on the part of
the boys. Newberry college gives a
scholarship yearly to this school.

Friday night. We esteemed it a priv
ilege to be present on that occasion.
Notwithstanding the fact that a carni
val was holding forth in the town just
across the street from fhe town hall,
with a brass band and a merry-go
round and a "wild west show," a fine
audience came out-to hear the doctor.
It was at once a tribute to Dr. Mc
Cain, to the town of Prosperity, to the
school -and to Prof. Brown. Dr. Mc
Cain held the undivided dttention of
his audience for about one hour. It
proved to be a popular lecture in the
highest sense of the word, and one
well suited to parents, children and
teachers. The doctor adapted his lec
ture to the time and the occasion. It
was full of fine illustrations, eloquont
quotatons and with soul moving pas
sages. The doctor received many con
gratulations at the close.
We stopped with Rev. and Mrs. I. S.
Oaldwell while in Prosperity. They
occupy one of the best 'and most im
posing parsonages in the synod. It is
a two story building of eleven rooms,
not far from the . church. Brother
Caldwell's 'hands are full of work. He
is ministering to four ohurches and is
