Asylum Commission Makes Announce
ment as to Policy
Columbia, April 22.-That one pla
teau of the lands purchased for the
State Hospital for the Insane will be
devoted to the erection of new build-1
ings for the colored insane, and an
other plateau will be held in reserve
for the needs of the asylum later on,
was definitely anrnounced here today
by Dr. James W. Babcock, the chair
man of the asylum commission. The
lands for the colored insane are farth
er from the 'Columbia site than the
lands to be held in reserve, most pro
bably. for white pati-nlts. This an
nouncement settles any doubt that
may have existed as to the policy of
the commission with regard to the
separation of the races.
The white insane will rema.in at the
plant flow located in Columbia and:
recently improved by the erection of
three new buildings during the past:

NEWIRRY INS TWO.
Defeats Erskine Friday and Saturday.
Smeltzer and Boozer the
Last Friday and Saturday Newberry
won from Erskine at Due West. For
Newberry to win from Erskine on the
Due West diamond- has long been con
,eded one of the hardest jobs that the
.ewberry lads have to contend with
uring the baseball season. But this
Lirle it was found to be an easy one,
though not by any means a walkover.
Friday's game started out nicely.
rhe first nine of Erskine's batters that
ame up retired with three strike-outs
to Epting's credit and not a man to
reach first. In the first inning, with
two out for Newberry, Boozer got a
ingle over 'short, but was out trying
to steal second. The next time Wise
led off with a single, and Neal with
a neat sacrifice sent him to second,
but Hazel and Epting couldn't do any
thing with Fleming's curves, so the
side was retired with Wise still on
second. In the third, with two men
down Johnstone singled to left, then
was out :trying to steal second off
Betts, who was pegging in perfect
In the fourth, with two men down,
Floyd for Erskine hit to centre, but
Betts popped up to first.
Smeltzer got a base on balls in the
last half of the fourth, but was forced
out when Boozer grounded to short,
Wise followed with a single to right
and Boozer went to second. Neal
forced Wise out at second, and stole,
second when second and third basI
errored on Hazel's and Epting's
grounders Boozer and Neal sqore the
first two runs of the game.
In the fifth Wilson for Etskine
started out with a single, and Flem
ing rEached first on an error. Agnew
grounded to short, and Wilson scored
when a thrown ball hits his hand and
rolled out of third baseman's reach,
leaving a man on second and third.
Barron was out, pitcher to first, but
when Agnew played to.far off second
and forced Fleming out at the plate
with two more errors to aid Erskine
scored another run when Epting out
guesses Newton, and fans him.
In'the sixth Smeltzer, with two out,
hit to left, and scored on Boozer's two
bagger. Wise struck out, giving New
berry the lead, 3 to 2.
Erskine's men after this for the
ret four innings retired in 1., 2, 3
order. But in the sixth Epti'ng sin
gled safely and Floyd followed with
his hit. Wright, who is developing in
to a pinch hitter, drove them both
around on a clean one to right, and
Epting scored on an error, making t.he
scores 4 to 2 in Newberry's'fa.vor. Jr,
the next two innings Newberry failed
to do anything other than reach first
on an error. The box score folh>ws.

A Silence That Was Notable.
Tihe chief interest at the theatres
this week is in the sudden success of1
Miss Lincoln's first play, "The En:1 of~
The Bridge," at the Castle Square
theatre, which is daily crowded to see
this peculiar plot peculiarly acted. Its
scesss seems due to several causes
- ('e odd and vague mystery of the
plot, the excellent "glorious human
boy" presented by Miss Dannels, and1
the incongruity of the name with the
contents of the piece itself, which
shows no bridge, and for a time!
seems to have no possible end. The
acting is gacd, butt queer, and intro- 1
duces th-e practice of silence as a part1
of the acting, oftener than I recall in4
anyi other play'. I was reminded of4
the Irish judge who exclaimed, "Pris
onr at the bar! What we want of you 1
is silence--and precious littl1e of
that. The system seems to call for
almost as many silences as Emersoni
saved up, ac:cording to his poetical
calculation in "Merops:"
Thus far today your favors reach,
() fair appeasing presences!
IYe' taught my lips a single spee(ch.t
And a thousand silences. t
Tthere was so much of this silence,
and of 'the telephone (which is a
demisilence. since we only hear onei

TRADE WITH BRAZIL.
hips.Easy to Get If Cargoes Are Sup
ew Orleans Picayune.*
The Charleston (S. C.) News and
Jourier has become much aroused at
;he information that a commercial
ommissioner was recently dispatch
d from New Orleans to Brazil to con
er on the subject of direct trade with
he cities of Rio de Janeiro, Santos
nd Para, and that the commissioner
as returned to New Orleans bringing
he information that not only thbe mer'
hants, but the national officials, are
agerly desirous of such direct trade
'ith this city.
The esteemed Charleston contem
orary is particularly:impressed with
ie statement that a Brazilian nation
3l cmisioer is soon to be sent to
his country, with the idea of esta,b
ishing in New Orleans a bureau to
onduct such direct recip.rocal trade.
n view of these conditions, the News
.nd Courier, after setting forth the
pcial advantages of the South Caro
ma port for such a trade, declares
hat Charleston must get possessioni
) the 'Brazilian visitor as a matter
) the most vital importance. It says
n that connection:
"What is to be done? First of all
his special tenvoy from Brazil to the
Jnited States must be brought to
harleston. If possible, he should bs
arried West over one of our Western
onnections and brought back over
he other. There are, then, two plans
.vilable for securing the necessary
tamship connections. An effort
night properly be made first to per
ude one of the New York-Rio Jan
ir lines to make this a port of call
oth ways. The second plan is to
r.:anize a swamship company with a
w't al of about 85.000.000O, subscrip
ios to which could be secured all
brgh the Carolinas and the States
eynd. It would not be a begging af
air, for the line would earn handsom>l
ivienCfds on the investmenTt. A cap

of which would have to be not Less
than 12,000 tons and the speed not
less than sixteen knots in order to se
cure government mail contracts."
It is gratifying to se the fine old
Carolina city awake to such an im
portant enterprise, bat the Charleston
merchants doubtless airady under
stand that direct trade with foreign
ports is not a mere questioa of ships,
but of cargoes. There must be
freights, shiploads of freights, carried
both ways, %r-d if these are to beiad
there will be no dTcilty in get--.
shirs. Thvere are plenty of them :&
ways seeking busineZs and they will
g.! where it is to be had.
New Orleans is already ono of the
world's greatest coffee ports. A fleet of
s;hips come here in a year loaded witA
Brazilian coffee. in these receipts
New Orleans is only second to New
York, but we send no cargoes back
in return. We load these coffee ships
with cotton, staves, grain and other
products for British and Continental
ports and there they take cargoes for
Rio and Santos. It is triangular trade
and is direct only one way.
Charleston may be able-to get coffee
direct from Brazil, but can: it have
ready return cargoes? That is the
crux of the proposition. That Is what
the New Orleans merchants have got
to do, whether they use their own
ships, or hire others. The problem is
to fill every 12,000-ton ship that coMes
with coffee, with merchandise, which
the Brazilians want, and send it
straight to Brazil. That is diret
trade, an4 it is for those he
carry it on.
