J bat President Wilson and
Cabinet Are Opposed to Embargo
ProposaL
Washington. Nov. 22.?Representative
Fitzgera.'l, Democrat, chairman
di tin; house appropriation committee,
announce.'! today that lie favored an:
enl:-:igo on foodstuffs and that.it was'
his { urnose to prepare a bill and to!
press the subject early in the coming j
session of congress.
"Two reasons chiefly impel me to;
favor embargo legislation on foovi-!
I stuffs," said Mr. Fitzgerald. "It is'
j the most effective weapon in our eon-.
traversy with Great Britain over her
unwarranted, outrageous and indefensible
blacklist of American merchants.;
As our foodstuffs are needed abroad,
an embargo will be more effective than
weary months of diplomatic negotiations
which end in the continuance of ;
the indefensible practices against our
rights.
"The embargo also should be imposed
for purely domestic reasons.'
nnVps nf foodstuffs have reached)
1 liv w
levels that are bringing "widespread'
distress to the country. Many hun-j
dreds of thousands of our people are!
suffering from the lack of the neces- i
sities of life. Wholesale prices in i
many commodities are less abroad f
than they were a year ago; here the!
retail prices have advanced alarm-!
ingly. ' |
1 *4 !
"The argument that notmng suoum i
be done to interfere with/ the expan-j
sion of our foreign trade aoes not impress
me. Of what profit it is if our|
foreign trade is to grow with leaps
and bounds whil oure own people are
brought tjb the verge of starvation as
a result of it.
"The time is ripe for tiie embargo
and I hope to see legislation speedily
enacted to impose it. Let America
^5?.i. ?> |'
be for Americans iu&l. ,
It seems to be generally agreed here!
that the coming session of congress!
will see a fight ovvr the embargo proposal,
which is backed by monster petitions
signed by thousands of persons
and organizations.

NEGROES MURDER

t
Crowd Goes to Scene Determined toi
Take Action if Perpetrators
Are Captured*
The State.
Dillon, Nov. 21.?Hugh Harrelsoa, a
prominent planter of this county, was j
killed late this evening whTfe serving i
a number of negroes at his commls-j
sary. Mrs. Harrelson, wno was mi
tlie home at the time of the killing;
was severely beaten by a negro who
was sent to the house to prevent her
from giving the alarm. She will reco/er.
A considerable number of Dii-.'
Ion people, as well as some from.otherj
sections oi' the county, have gone to:
the SLcne. If the pursuers capture any j

be proof a lynching is feared.
Yesterday Mr Harrison had trouble i
wLli a drunken negro, who stood iai
the road as JVIr. Harrelson was returning
from Dillon and dared him to
pass. Mr. Harrelson threatened him
with the law. Today; however, the
negro came to Mr. Harrelson and
apologized, the matter apparently
being cleared up.
Late this evening while Mr. Harrelson
was waiting on several negroes
who had come to his commissary near
Pleasant Hill church, seven miles
- .1
from Dillon, he was attached ana.
beaten to death with some blunt Instrument.
The motive was apparntly
robbery. The slayers went througa
his clothes and took ail the money
he had with him. Mrs. Herrelson explained
that her husband was known
to carry from $30 to $40 in his pocket
all the time, and it was probabb
l'or this that the negroes killed him.
Mrs. Harrelson, who was in the
house alone, was beset by a n?gro,
whom she recognized.; Hfe^V mission
evidently wsu} to present lier from
giving an alarm. He struck her over
the head with a club and she fled,
taking refug^ under a table. Shortly
afterwards the negro left, and she
then crept out and rang the farm
ball, thus summoning the neighbors.
She did not know of her husbands
death until later.
They organized for pursuit and secured
bloodhounds for the cfcaee.
Thus far none of the negroes have
been captured.
Mr. Harrelson, who was about 60
years of age, was a highly respected
and well known planter. <Ai brother,
B. A. Harrelson. lives in Dillon.
"The Hidden Scar.**
No one ever passes through life
scarless, and usually when the twilight
of life dawns upon us we look j
upon our scars as meaais, wvu m;
the battle of life.
Sometimes as we journey on, conditions
for which we are not always
responsible, mark us, so to speak, wilh
scars that we would hide from our
friends. Some call it Fate, others call
thp hie. broadshoulct
IO fCJlUl J , ,
ered man or the level-headed little
woman, call it Imagination. Again,
there are a few who look upon these
scars with, a feeling of horror. These
few may be in the minority, hut the
power of their opinions often makes
a mountain of a mole-hill. There Is
a scorching path in life, and thers
. are many who travel it in search of j
happiness. As a result there comes j
I a time when they seek to hide the!
ear. All things considered, "The
Hidden Scar" is one of the most interesting
pictures produced In a Ions
time. It has "that touch of nature
that makes the whole world ki*.
