"Whit* Cotton Suits lor Men for Street
* Spartanburg, Feb. 27.?J. W. Alex|
ander, real -estate broker, has bought
for a total of $21,000, six adjoining
lots on Brawley and Cannon streets
next to the Southern Railway. There
are seventeen houseE on the tract
whicn. has an area of between three
and tour acres.
Mr. Alexander declined today to disclose
the purpose for which he bought
the land, but it is supposed to be inmt
tended as a site for a manufacturing
establishment?possibly the factory in
which the King Cotton Clothing Manuf
' facturing company proposes to make
) men's wearing apparel.
Mr. Alexanded advocates the wearing
of cool suits of white cotton goods
in summer instead of the heavy fabrics,
which convention now demands,
that men shall wear. He himself set
the example late last summer by appearing
on the streets in a white suit

His suit was so comfortable and at^
tractive that in a short time he had
been given orders by other m-en for
more than 100 similar suits. He proposes
to organize the King Cotton
Company to manufacture such clothing.
It is also rumored that the land
V.O iiae hrtn?ht mav be used by
silk mill which has been seeking a
location in Spartanburg. Mr. Alexan}
d-er said an announcement in regard

YORK HAS AX HO\EST TAXPAYER
TIfctf is, One who Literally InterN
prets Laws on Returns.
Yorkville, Feb. 27.?Yorkville has ;
xme- citizen who is very likely in a'
class almost by himself. He is one
of the few who really believe that the
law relative to tax returns actually
means what it says, and that the individual
who signs the affidavit to the
effect that he has listed all his beat
i??orinorr. ot fhpir atrial market value,
rIUU5iugg u. v ~
and has not done so, is just an or- j
dinary liar. He holds the note of one ;
f of the largest and strongest corporations
in the county for $2,000, bear
ing 7 per cent interest, and while he
knew that there is no authority in the i
law for assessing the stock of corpora- j
tions at its full market value and then i
requiring it to pay taxes on 60 per !
cent of that valuation, still he vol- j
> untered to pay taxes on 60 per cent j
of the face value of his note, but the,
auditor stated that 50 per cent, would
be proper. The taxes will amount to j
about $40, reducing the net income to;
5 per cent.

This is a specially agreeable piece j
of news for Rock Hill, as Mr. Blakeyj
' is rated as a most successful expert j
in this work, and other and larger cit-;

is at present completing work began!
in Chattanooga, Tenn, and after in-:

CIGARETTE "STUMP" IN LOAF.
? - - ? ?< - <~U _ !
City Bread inspector treea ior nwrv
The action of city council in a) - j
propriating $1,200 for the salary of a!
veterinary surgeon will no doubt meet:
with general approbation. That tiiej
services of such an officer ari ind:s-:
> pensable is argued by statem ms uade j
to a reporter for The News and Cou !
rier yesterday by Dr. J. ttereeir Green, j
the city health offioer. Dr. Gr^ii wnen!
asked what importance he attached to
the office of veterinary, cited two instances,
which are sut5?? v.it to show
the need of the most expert man in
this line tbe city is ab; ? to procure
in order that citizens be guarded
against meats that wouli prove an absolute
menace to the pibiic health.
Dr. Green stated tnat noi long ago a
number of hogs aff^tei w'th cholera
were slaughtered and would have been
"butchered and the bo'f hold to an unsuspecting
public hid not the- veter
inary discovered che defeat in the cattle
and prohibited their use as beef.
It is the office of the inspector to
see that every animal slaughtered for
meat to be cold in Charleston is J
healthy and in every respect meets
j the requirements of the law. Dr. I).
Kater Mclnnes is the veterinary surgeon
whose service^ are employed by
i Now that the meat and n sold in
the city undergo inspection, ... would
se^m, according to freely-expressed
opini' n, that bread would be next in
order. Those who believe that an inpector
of bread is necessary should
see the loaf of bread which the city
health officer has in his office. This
.loaf of graham bread, baked in a
Charleston bakery, has in the> centre of
.it the stump of a cigarette. It appears
that some one engaged in mixing the
lough dropped the cigarette from his
mouth, and either could not or did not
make an effort to find it and take it
out. The cigarette was thoroughly
cooked into the bread. Dr. Green will
no doubt gladly show this loaf to r.ny
one desiring to see it, or *ven give him
a "quid" of the tobacco as a souvenir.
Such things make a bad impression
on strangers it is argued. This loaf
of bread was bought by a man from
Atlanta who recently came to Charles*

SULZER ORDERS RUSSELL FIRED.
i tfatteawan Head Forestalls Action
i Albany, N. Y., February 27.?Without
waiting for a report from his committee
of inquiry, which has been investigating
the latest Thaw scandal, GovI
ernor Sulzer today sent a letter to Col.
! Joseph P. Soott, superintendent of
' State prisons, directing the removal of
I Dr. John W. Russell, superintendent of
! the Matteawan State Hospital, where
| Harry K. Thaw is confined. Col. Scott
tonight said he had not yet received
Action by Col. Scott was made unnecessary,
however, by the resignation
\ of Dr. Russell, which was telephoned
this afternoon from Matteawan. The
resignation was accepted at once and;
Col. Scott designated Dr. Roy L. Leak, j
first assistant physician at the hospital,
to take charge of the institution
The governor sent another letter torCharles
S. Whitman, district attorney \
of New York, together with a copy of j
the testimony taken by the committee!
concerning the offer of $20,000, which;
Dr. Russe-11 says was made to him by 1
John N. Anhut, a X-ew York lawyer;
if he would aid in releasing Thaw. J
The testimony also included Anhut's j
denial and his counter-charge that Dr.
Russell wanted to know "where he
came in" on the $25,000, which Anhut!
admits he received from an agent of j
Thaw as a "contingent retainer" to
free Stanford White's slayer.
This information, the governor says,'
he expects the district attorney to lay j

; A third letter, with a copy of the
'testimony "relating to the acts and j
proceedings of John X. Anhut, coun-;
sellor-at-law, in relation to one Harry

committee of the bar association
of New York county "for such action
in the premises, under the circum- j

"I am sorry for that," exclaimed the
governor when he learned that Dr.
Russell's resignation had forestalled
action by Col. Scott.
"I wanted Russell thrown out of of- j
fice. I want it understood that while j
I am governor I am going to rua down
-every grafter in the State. 141 don't
care who he is or wnere ne comes
from or who is behind him, and we
have got a lot of them."
The committee will end its investigation
of the Thaw scandal tomorrow.
Governor Sulzer said Scott kad
offered his resignation, but he had,
asked him not to leave.
Qf ANTIAT, T\ *PARTAXB11U.. !
Effort Made to Corrupt City's Selective*?Investigation
Spartanburg, Feb. 26.?A sensatn 1
was sprung in the recorder's co.:rt.
here today during the trial of two ne-!
gro employes of local social c uls, j
charged with the sale of liquor wh^n j
H. B. Barnes, the city's special detective,
testified that he had been offered
$250 by persons identified with
the illicit sale of liquor in the city
to leave the city and not appear a3
a witness against them.
When Barnes took the stand, the
little court room was crowded with
interfsted snectators, but when he
touched on the all-eged attempted j
bribery there was a general exodus. |
Recorder Pasley took a serious view
of the disclosure and announced that
the whole matter would be investigated,
and every man im* licated in
the alleged'attempt to bribe the city's
detective would be prosecuted.

The Golden South.
It used to be the "Sunny South."
Now it is the "Golden South."
The development of the wonderful
natural resources of what are known |
commonly as our "Southern States" J
has been the marvei 01 our muusmai j
history. We are only at the opening
pages. The wealth in cotton, in lumber,
iron, coal, oil, and even the pre- ,
cious metals, which the South pos- (
sesses has been only in part disclosed.
Its wide expanse of arable lands
still untouched invites the immigrant
southward. Its fertile soil, its genial j
clime and hospitable people make the j
invitation particularly attractive. The j
tide of emigration, turning southward j
now more than ever, has only begun
to flow. It means a tide of wealth and

Th-e local society for the Prevention ,
of Cruelty to animals is in need of j,
more members in order that the funds
for the prosecution of its work may .
be augmented. This is an organization !
which is in every way worthy the j.
support of the community, for its aim
is to protect the dumb but sensitive
animals which cannot protect themselves.
Few things are more obnoxious
to a person with feeling than
cruel treatment 01 ammais, yet suuu
treatment will be accorded them unless
there is an organization to pre- .
vent. Not only is the protection of,
animals a kindness, but it is a posi- j ]
tive duty. Dumb brutes are an im- ^
portant factor in our civilization, bo j
laying aside all sympathetic consid- ]
erations, they are deserving or pro- j (
tection for this reason. Maltreatment! (
of animals is un-Christian, and utter- ly
unworthy of any community, there- ]
fore support the organization which ^
seeks to restrain those men who are <
so heartless as to abuse helpless crea- tures.
