COlIUty COluiiuiiee was iciiveu up auu ? ,
decision was reached that as the sub-j
committee must report to the State
committee Tuesday, next, such a pro+
cedure would not be possible. It was
decided to have letters sent out by
the Spartanburg committee in an effort
to find out if duplications of |
names are bona fide or indicate fraud i
' _ J 1
in that county. A motion was auuptcu,
calling on the managers of election in j
the county to submit any affidavits
9 they might be able to give pertaining
to alleged fraud.
The call of counties was completed.
* In Berkeley ten persons were said to
have voted when their names were
not on the club rolls. The use of
liquor is charged. Nothing irregular
is reported from Calhoun. The club
rolls and poll lists from Charleston
are on hand but the work of checking

the two is only one-cmra nmsueu.
Nothing irregular has been thus far
detected. No report was received)
from Chester county, but it was said j
that no poll list was kept at Lando i
and Great Falls. There was only one |
protest in Chesterfield county and that
was withdrawn. A letter from the
chairman in Clarendon county says no
protest has been made in that county
and there was no' investigation. In
Darlington a number of irregularities

from Dorchester is a letter saying

A letter from J. E. McDonald tells

primary was conducted fairly in Fairfield
county. No reports were made
to the committee from Florence,

or irregularities were noted. No reports
were received from Lancaster
and Marlboro. In Lee a resoltuion of
the executive committee declared no
fraud. Minor irregularities are reported
from Marion. Robert Lide,
county chairman in Orangeburg, believed
the primary was fairly conducted.
Some of'the poll lists have
disappeared and a part of these have

chairman of the committee in Richland,
advised that the cost of copying

At the close of the call of counties
F. H. Dominick renewed his insistz
ence that the attorneys for Judge
Jones make certain definite charges.
R. W. Shand exulained the position
of Judge Jones. He explained that it
is not necessary to file a bill of par>

be necessary with a court of common
^ pleas. If the seeming irregularities
number enough to change the result,
attorneys for Judge Jones will ask!
that the State committee take sufficient
votes from the highest candi
date and order another primary.
If the result can not be changed the :
protest will be withdrawn.
3Jr. Stevenson announced that the j
witdrawel of a contest could not af- i
feet this committee, for it has been j
directed to investigate the primary
* and must do so.
Just before 12 o'clock Col. Butler j
moved that the committee pay a visit i
to Greenville and the trip was made
m the early afternoon. '
The committee met in the court i
house as soon as it reached Greenville.
Avery Patton, chairman of the j
subcommittee in Greenville, was call- j
ed to the witness stand and sworn. He j
? was examined by Leo Patterson. Mr. j
'' Patton testified as to the report of the
committee received in Spartanburg, j
He was asked in particular as to the j

repeated that the committee found 347

To give more substantial premiums
so as to attract higher class and
more live stock for the Georgia-Carolina
Fair each year is the purpose
of the management. Secretary- Frank
E. Beane is now at work on the
proposition to have a much higher
class exhibit in this department than
has ever been attempted in this section
of the South before. Go out
West to a fair, and live stock will
be the predominant feature, for the
people take a particular pride in
their fine horses, fine cows and their
sheep, hogs, goats and other kinds
of live stock.
One reason why the live stock.exhibit
has not been as popular as it
should in the past is because the
pens and stalls have always been
located on one side of the fair j
grounds in a place somewhat remote
from the main fair building and the ,

J. T. Duncan filed an affidavit charg- :

On Inside Information
The night before Woodrow Wilson
was nominated for president at Baltimore,
when the Democratic 'convention
had been in session for many
hours and there was a nervous expectation
that the cat would start jumping
one way or other almost any minute,
Jack Hammond, the New York press
agent, who had charge of the publicity
end of the Harmon campaign, got
hungrier and hungrier as time dragged
on. Finally, when he was nearly
famished, he had an idea.
He hunted up die busily confabbing ,
floor managers of the Clark boom. Approaching
them with that air of importance
so essential to political conventions,
he said in a mysterious tone:
"Gentlemen, as you know, I'm representing
Governor Harmon here, ;
Take a tip from me and move for an
adjournment of two hours."
Then, leaving them startled, he mo\ed
gravely off, until he found the cap- 1
tains of the Wilson forces, whom he :

White Pigeon Brought Good Luck.
It is one of the pet beliefs of the
flshingj fleet folk that when a white
bird flies aboard a ship at sea good
luck is bound to follow. And if a white
bird happens to fly aboard a brand
new craft it insures the vessel with all
kinds of joy forever. Out on Georges,
two week* aero, a little pigeon fluttered
down on the deck of the good ship
Mary, perching on the wheel-box. Result?good
luck. Although Captain
Whalen's boat struck mighty hard
weather, it ca.ne through without a
scratch and landed 130,000 pounds of
mixed ground fish, mostly hake and
cusk, which is pretty nearly the record
catch for a maiden trip.
The pigeon looked as though it had
had some pretty hard luck itself before
it feel on with the Mary, however
One of its wings was badly torn as
though a gull or a hawk had taken a
piece out of it. The men on aboard
took gcod care of the pigeon, giving it
plenty of food, although they made no
attempt to confine it, to any part of
the vessel. The bird made friends
with every one, especially the cook,
fused to eat except out of the men's
hands. As the Mary came up the harber
the bird was adeck. Abreast of
Governor's island he suddenly took
wing and flew away. The men said it
looked to them as though the bird had
reconized his surroundings in thv inner
harbor a::d had flown for hoin?.?
World's Oldest Museum.
Dr. Otto Kummel, head of the East,
Asiatic department of the Berlin
Museum of Ethenology, tells of the oldest
museum in the worl din the bul
letin of the Societe France-.Iaponaise.
This museum may be found in the city i
of Xara, the former capital of Japan. J
Since its foundation, in 756, it has,
?one through all the changes of the
Japanese empire without one single:
addition to its collection. Dr. Otto
Kummel is one of # the few Europeans;
who were permitted to visit this j
museum. It opens its doors but o ice;
a year, on a day in spring, when a
special committe inspects the collection,
and a new list is made out. The
museum contains about 3,000 articles j
which are said^ to be the most beauti- j
ful specimens cf decorative work j
which have ever been produced by'
human hand, such as lacquer ware, j
cambriclike fabric.etc. The origin of;
the articles is uncertain, some came j
Fn-?Tn C*"'na ?r>d others from Corea,'
but most of the-n an Dear to b<> of a
more exotic orisin. All..however, came
