* MAYER MEMORIAL PASTORATE.*
The season of joy has been prevalent
in this pastorate.
The cotton mills suspended work
for three days in order that their
operatives might participate in the
joys of the season. And we have rea
son to believe that many enjoyed the
true Christmas joy.
There were services at each of the
churches, which set forth the Biblical
story of the birth of Christ and its
present day applications. Santa Claus
and such mythical allusions were set
aside in the recitations.
The exercises at Mayer Memorial
were on Friday night before Christ
mas. On this occasion through the
generosity and considerateness of the
Newberry cotton mill company, a
bountiful treat of fruits and candies
was given to the Sunday school.
The Summer - Memorial Sunday
school, through its own efforts and the
assistance of its friends, gave its of
Acers and te'achers and pupils a sim
lae treat at the time of its exercises
on Christmas night At this place and
-time there was also a nicely decorated
Christmas tree, which was well filled
with individual gifts-there being only
two gft' with which the Sunday
school, or congregation, had any thing
to do. One of these was a fine Water
man fountain pen, costing $4.50, and
given by the Sunday school. In ap
preciation of his efficient and self sac
Tificing services as superintendent of
the Sunday school, it was given to Mr.
John C. Goggans. The other came
through the church council. It is a
beautiful watch fob with safety at-,
tachment and said to cost $14.50. It
was most happily received by Pastor
J. B. Harman.
In the Mayer Memorial Sunday
school many gifts were given by the
teachers to the pupils, and by the pu
pils to the teachers, but all were given
privately, except one. This was pre
sented on Sunday morning just after
Sunday school, to Mr. John 0. Kin
ard, the superintendent. It was a
pair of cuff buttons given by the class
that he teaches. In the exercises held
the behavior was excellent and the
attention good. Several valuable and
useful gifts were~given to the pastor's
family by the Mayor Memorial congre
gation, which are highly appreciated.
At the exercises of the Mayer Memor
ial Sunday school an offering of $2.05
was received for our orphan's home in
J. B. Harman.
ALMOST. EXACTLY LIKE
MURDER OF WILL EUFF
Anderson Merchant Murdered in Store.
Bobbery Apparent Cause-Just
Outside City Limits.
Anderson, D~ec. 29.-David Hutto an
old Confederate v"teran about 60
years of age, who kept a small store
on the extension of Greenville street
just t,eyo'nd the city limits was found
dead in his store room today with the
left side of his face andi head smashed
to a pulp. The last time he was seen
was on Monday afternoon and judging
from the decomposition of the. body the
murder must have been coinmitted
Mr. Hutto was eccentric, and the
fact that he failed to show himself
since Monday among his friends and
r'elatives was no occasion for alarm
so no search had been made by his
family to locate him. A negro woman
who went to the store this morning to
purchase some groceries noticed that
blood had trickled through the floor
of the little building, and a sign read
ing "This man dead on inside" was
tacked on the front door. She notified
Sheriff King and he with 'Deputy Mar
tin forced the door open which had
been locked from the outside, and in
a crouching position partly on the cot
in the rear of the store and partly on
the floor was found Mr. Hutto's body.
The lick over the man's head was a
terrific one as his brains and blood
were spattered all over the cot, the
floors and the walls nearby. There
were evidenc as of other licks, also pos
sibly after Mr. Hutto had fallen on the
cot. A blunt instrument, possibly an
axe, was used by the murderer, but
no instrument has yet been found by
the officers. Evidently robbery was
the motive for no money 'was found by
'officers in the man's clothing or in the
cigar box in which he was accustomed
always to keep some change. Mr. Hut
to was probably called from his cot
after he had retir'ed Monday night, for
when found today he was in his bed
The man who committed the deed
very probably called for sardines and
-crackers for on the counter were found
two 'boxes of sardines which had been
opened and in the armzs ofMr. Hutto
cracker box was sitting near the cot
and the first blow must have been
dealt from his rear as he was leaning
over the box in the act of placing the
crackers in the bag.
Mr. Hutto's body was removed to
Tolly's morgue where Coroner Beasley
began an inqunest this afternoon. The
inquest was adjourned tonight until
Monday when the taking of testimony
will be resumed. The officers expect
to gather something tangible by that
time. 'At the inquest this afternoon
two negro children testified .hat they
saw two young white men go up to the
'store door about four o'clock yesterday
afternoon and write the sign which
was found tacked on the door today.
It is believed by the officers that the
young men intended this as a joke,
I having no idea that information given
in the notice was correct This clew
is being followed, however, but devel
cpments incriminating other parties
are expected to oc- I so.
Mr. Hutto is survived by his widow
and several children.
CAPERS FACTION IN CONTROL.
Seems to Have Been Recognized by
Powers-Tolbert's Course Is
Washington, Dec. 28.-John G. Ca
pers, the South Carolina member of
the national Republican committee,
has received the official call for the
next national convention at Chicago,
June 18. The receipt of this call by
Mr. Capers, is interesting in South
Carolina because of the existence
there of two factions of the Republi
can party each claiming to be the
regular organization. L. W. C. Bla
lock is chairman of the Capers fac
tion, composed almost entirely of
white men, and Joseph W. Tolbert is
chairman of the other faction, com
posed, with few exceptions, of ne
It has developed that while,the na
tional Republican committee was in
session here on December 12, Tolbert
and a number of negroes came to
Washington, hoping to challenge Mr.
Capers' right to sit on the national
committee. Finding that impossible
of accomplishment, they made every
effort to obtain from the secretary of
the natio>nal committee, the official
call for thle convention hoping in that
way to get the advantage of that rec
ognition of "regularity." While they
were working to that end, Mr. Cap
ers, who was one of the five members
of the na.tional committee appointed
to draft the call for the convention,
was busy on that work, and when the
call was drafted and adopted, after
the rejection of the minority report
presented 'by Senator Borah, it was
found that the last paragrph of the
call contained the following direction
to the secretary of the national coin
Call to Committeemen.
"In promulgating this call the sec
retary of the Republican national
committee is directed to send a copy
of it to the member of the national
committee of' each State, and encolse
therewith a copy of the call for the
chairman and secretary of the State
executive committee to be forwarded
to said chairman and secretary by the
member of the national committee."
In accordince with those instruc
tions, Mr. Capers received by regis
tered letter today the official call from
the secretary of the national commit
tee in which is contained the foll'ow
"Pursuant to instructions contain
ed in the call, I am enclosing you
herewith three copies of the same,
one for yourself and one each for
the chairman and secretary of your
State committee, to be transmitted to
them by you.
"Will you be kind enough to advise
me the corre-ct name and postoffice
address of the present chairman and
secretary of your State committee for
our records in this office, and, at the
same time, acknowledging receipt of
the enclosed copies of the call."
The "Real Thing."
Mr. Capers acknowledged receipt of
the call and stated that M.aj. Blalock
was chairman and Dan H. Wallace
was secretary of the "only real" Re
publican organization in South Caro
Just what the Tolbert faction will
do in view of this situation is prob
lematical. This matter was brought
up after Mr. Capers had left the
White House yesterday, where he was
in conference more than an hor
with Mr. Hilles, secretary to the pres
When seen in his office here today,
Capt. Capers stated that he thought
it best to have nothing particular tc
say about the matter, especially, as
the record as above recited seemed
sufficient to explain the whole situa
