V Young Man for Burerlar.
V -Laurens, Oct. 29.?A specialist in
surgery was brought to Laurens to
^ day from Columbia by special train
to perform an operation in an effort
to save the life ol~ John Watts,
only son of Richard C. Watts, associate
justice of the supreme court of
South Carolina. Young Watts was
shot and dangerously wounded at 4

W. by 'Mr. Wil<kes, was discovered in the
yard of the Wilikes residence.
1 The bullet, a 35 calibre, entered the
left side in line "with the nip bone
and ranged upward, perforating the
I intestines in four places. This was
1 revealed by the operation but the
V bullet was not located. The wounded
p mail is in a serious condition tonight,
^ but it is stated that he has an even
^Lchance of recovery. He is at a saniHtaruim.

L Some time before 4 o'clock Mr.
jilkes and his wife were aroused by
t e barking o the dog. Later they
heard a noise in the back yard which
sounded like some one scrambling
over V. e fence. Thinking it was a
coal thief, Mr. and Mrs. Wilkes proceeded
to the back door and Mr.
\Y,'i"kes stepped out into the yard. Seeing
a figure of a man in the darkness,
Mr. Wilkes haileU him. Receiving
no response, he fired, aiming at the
lower nart of his body. The
.uan ell, then arose and ran
across t-e street and fell in the front
porch of B. L. Clard-v's residence.
Mr. Watts was calling for a doctor
and Mr. Clardy went out and
discovered who it was. The alarm
was given and the young man
was rushed to the hospital. It is
seated that he appeared to be under
the influence of liq-imr wjien iouna
and this probably .explains his cond;ct,
as re did not know where he
was going or w"hai h:e was doing.
iMr. Watts is a University or Sout'i-Carolina
graduate in law and is about
22 years of age.
GRAIN BILL KILLED
No Seed GGra/n Fiirn/slied by State.
Senate Orders Tickets I^mted
For Bond Electron.
News and Courier.
Columbia, Oct. 30.?By a vote of 20
to 7 the senate has pasised a resolution
ordering the secretary of State
to order ballots printed and distributed
1 or a vote on the bond issue' proposition
at the. g:enHral election next
Tuesday, desipite the . act that the act
is srtill in fcbe banc's of the chief executive.
Just wrat disposition he will
make of this was a matter 01 conjecture
tonight. It is to meet any possible
emergency that the senate resorted
to this action, the argument being
that the chief executive might retain
the act through three-day constitutional
limit. It "would then become
law automatically if the general assembly
was still sitting, but the time
would be too brief in w ich to print
and distribute ballots. The governor
can retain the bill through next Monday..
The senate concurred with the
house in overriding the governor's
veto o? 12 items in the appropriation
bill by an overwhelming vote, in no
case not more than seven votes being
registered in accord with the governor's
Senators Weary. *
Wearied by the long wait last night
while the house filibustered., the senate
.gathered this morning at 11
o'clock for another day's session. A,
great many of them had gotten very'
little sleep, for it was afiter 2 o'clock
when the house filbuster collapsed
end the 24,000,00G cotton bo d bill was

Senator Williams on tie senate sideand

house side, fought to the last. Tee

There was a time when many people
were ready to declare that the
motion nicture show was a menace to
the morals of children, who constitute
a large percentage of their patrons.
Certain classes of pictures presented
in some of t^ese theatres, it must he
admitted, are not particularly elavating,
morally or otherwise. But it is
not to be douhted that the "movies"
have to a large extent outlived these
early prejudies. Lkie the newspapers,
they cater to the public taste, and if
the wrong type o>" pictures are shown
sometimes, it is largely because the
public^ by t-eir patronage, have indicated
their perference Ifor that type
?if show. The motion picture people
study closely the kind of pictures that
attract most pattronage, and conduct
their business cn it at principle. If
the public more freely patronizes undesirable
pictures, that is the kind of
pictures fc.at will predominate.
But it is almost conclusively shown
ihat certain other advantages must be
set down to the credit of the motion
picture show, it has been frequently
iraid that saloon keepers complain
that many of the nickles and dimes
that formerly ^vent into their colters
. ave been diverted to the ticket windows
of the mo ang picture shows
since their extensive operation as
b.ecome established. Now comes The
New York ft'orld, and points out that
wi;hin the pasc year in Brooklyn 53
salrcns have gene out of business,
while for the past two years some
two hnislred new motion picture places
have been opened in that city. The
World states that while tJ.:is is not
j crnc.'usive evidence that the pictures
are o-peraiting to tr e detriment of
. -ie s a Icon business, it is nevertheless
, quite convincing evidence.
Of course the patronizing of a motion
picture shew is a very different
form O'' entertainment rom that indulged
in when a sa'oon is patronized,
but the essential point is that eacb is
merely entertainment. Seeing a picture
does not satisfy the craving or

of the fellowship and social contact

in almost as satisfactory a degree by

seemed full oL- 'harmony. Tihe waves
of music vibrated to and fro, loudly
beating against the walls swelling in- I
to full chords like the roll of a great!
organ, and then dying away into soft J
long-drawn, far-reaching echoes, melt- j

only the guide, who lingering behind
a moment, had softly murmairmed a

dome elvery sound resolves into har'
money. Xo discord can reac: the summit
