WILL WELCO3E WILSON.
Local Alumni of the University of Vir
ginia-To Cooperate With
In view of the approaching visit to
Columbia by Woodrow Wilson, says
the Columbia State, the local alumni
of the University of Virginia will ex
tend a warm welcome to the distin
guished vi-itor. In fact, il1 thc.
alumni of the-State may be invited to
join the local organization. Gov. Wil
son has in Columbia a nuaber of
friends who attended school with him
at Mr. Barnwell's academy and later
at the University of Virginia, and they
wish to extend to him a hearty wel
come to the old home town. Christie
Benet is the active president of the
Columbia club of the Virginia alumni
and will be glad to hear from other
alumni in the city and in the State.
Gov. Wilson comes to Columbia on
the 2nd of June by invitation of the
South Carolina Press association, and
the pleasure of having him here will
be shared with the people of the
State. The address will be delivered
in the Columbia theatre, which is the
largest hall in the city. The women's
colleges in Columbia will have closed,
but the university community will re
lish this address from one who has
been among the foremost educators
of the day. (
Columbia being so easily accessible
to all parts of the State, it is hoped
that every newspaper proprietor and
editor in the State will attend the
weeting here. The entire Colonia ho
tel will be at the disposal of the asso
ciation and there will be comfortable
rooms for all. An interesting pro
gram has been arranged and a spe
eial invitation has been extended to a
number of the veteran editors who
have been in harness something like
40 years. Among these are John W.
Holmes, of Barnwell and Charles
Petty, of Spartanburg, members of the
famous Wallace house in 1876, and
Col. R. A. Thompson, of Walhalla; sole
survivor of the Secession convention
of 1860. Rev. Dr. W. P. Jacobs, of
Clinton, at present and for years the
chbaplain of the association, is ex
Lpected to attend, although he is a very
busy man wit the care of the Thorn
well college for orphans. Dr. Jacobs
contributed to The State on December
20 his reminiscences of the signing of
the Ordinance of Secession, which oc
casion he reported for the Charleston

Attorney General May Postpone Dis-1
pensary Trials-Nothing of Offi
cial Nature Given out.
While nothing of an official nature
bas yet been announced, it is general
ly believed that J.~Fraser Lyon, attor
mey general, will rehise to go to trial
with (he remaining alleged dilspen
g4 ry cases, during the administration
This course- will be taken, it is said,
because Gov. Blease granted a full
pardon to John Black, wno was con
victed in C,hester -county and sentenc-1
d~ to five ye/rs in the penitentiary.
- Mr. Lyon was asked yesterday if he
-would try others under indictment
during the administration of Gov.
"I have no statement to make at
ibis time," said the attorney general.
Cases on the charge of graft in corn
xection with the State dispensary are
lending against L. W. B.oykin, W. 0.
Tatum, H. H. Evans, John Bell Towill,
and-the Blocks of Macon, Ga.
Several days ago Mr. Lyon sent a(
letter to Gov. Blease answering sever-!1
al questions as to the work of the i
~1egal department in the graft prosecu- 1
li.ons. In this letter the attorney gen- i
eral enumerated those to 'whom im
munity had been granted for giving I
*vidence at the trials.
When the governor read the letter:
ke immediately granted John Black a
full pardon, whi'ch relieved him of t
paying to the State the sumif of $2,000. r
Gov. Blease did not say j.st what
statement in the letter caused him to
pa.rdon Black, but said the letter causI
-ed him to take this action.
HARRISON WINS IN CHIICAG~O.d
For Fifth Time Will Serve as Chica- e

Chicago, April 4.-Carter- H. IHr r- 1
rison, mayor of Chicago. from 18S97t
tntil 1905, and son of Carter H. Har- o
rison, Sr., who occupied the mayor's' $
office from 1879 to l8f~7, and was as- t
sissinated during the World's Fair, p
was elected mayor for the fifth time t
today. He defeated Charles E. MIer- e
riam, his Republican opponent. by i
17,08S2 votes, gaining a total of 177,3~>S
In spite of the oppositon of a ma- c
jority of the local press, the election e
-was almost a complete T'mo:crat:c n
victory. The election of Fred Con
nery, for city clerk, and Henry Stuck
art, for city treasurer, early was con
ceded, although a count of their tota
vote has not been completed. Thi

Prof. Charles E. Merriam, his Re
publican opponent, conceded the elec
tion to Mr. Harrison at 6.30, two an
a half-hours after the polls closed, bu
declared that results were such a.
would give him hope for another cam
paign. He said:
"I am satisfied with the fight wE
have made. We have presented the is
sues of decent, honest, economica
government squarely to the voters it
a way that cannot fail to help con
ditions. The battle must be fought noi
once, but many times, and in the long
run it will prove successful. I con
gratulate Mr. Harrison on his victory
and wish him well in his administra
Big Democratic Gain.
Returns by wards show that Prof
Merriam was given nearly 7 per cent,
less votes than Busse (Republican)
was accorded four years ago, while
Harrison ran over 17 per cent. ahead
of the figures attained by Dunne
(Democrat) at that time. The vote
reached above 340,000, which is abont
25,000 more than the record at the
same time in the last mayoralty con
test. In spite of this both sides agreed
that Merriam lost through failure of
the "silk stocking" wards to show the
Even in the twenty-fifth ward, where
Merriam's candidacy was conceived,
failure of Merriam supporters to vote
caused the professor's total to. drop
far below what had been expected.
Harrison announced as soon as this
ward had been reported that he had
won and prepared a statement. After
this ward had reported-the result
never was in doubt.
"Seventy Cents Gas" Helped.
While the first ward gave up its
usual Democratic plurality, it was not
alone from this, and the river wards
of similar character, tn' Harrison
drew his support. His eignt years'
service in the mayor's chair drew out
many from the ranks his opponent
b.ad not counted on, and his promise
of 70-cent gas was said by his man
a.gers to have had a great influence
with the West Side wards, where he
showed unexpected strength.
One of the features of the campaign
was th_e vote polled by the Socialist
party. Five-sixths of the total pre
aincts in the first inidicated that the
rote would reach 24,000, a gain of 1.1,
)00 .over the vote of four years ago.
)n the other hand the prohibition vote
Iropped to 3,000 this year, as against
[1,000 last year.

Soesialists Losing Ground!
Milwaukee, April 4.-The Solialist
