ORANGEBURG MAN USES KNIFE
One Gets Badly Cut and Receives
Leg Wound?Officer Also
Orangeburg, April 6.?Stewart F.
Coy of Pittsburgh'ana John A. Robinsin
of Blackstone, N. D., 'are in the
Orangeburg jail, having i>een arrested
on a charge of attempted highway
robbery. These young white men
came to the home of E. L. Bull, a
prominent farmer of the Parler section
of rangeburg county last night,
and told Mr. Bull that they were tow- j
ists, their car had broken down and j
to please drive them to Parler that
they might catch the night train. ;
Bull consented and while driving h;s
car toward Parler and when Vance
mill dam was reached, the road being
quite secluded at that spot, the young
men assailed Mr. Bull with their
fists. Mr. Bull was being choked by
one of the men, but he managed to
get his knife and he cut that man's
throat from ear to ear, cut the other
man on the hand and about the mouth
and shot one of the men in the leg. |
Although Mr. Bull was bruised con-1
siderablv. he was not badly hurt. The I
robbers were pairifullv' injured and
could not even attempt an escape.
Mr. Bull soon got help, got the car
straightened out and delivered the injured
men to Magistrate J. R. Bardin,
who in turn brought them to Orangeburg.
Dr. W. R. Lowman, the county physician,
attended the injured men at
the Orangeburg jail and dressed the

ly wounded, but are suffering from a
severely cut throat, another with his
cut face and hands and one has a pistol
shot wound in the leg. Mr. Bull
was confined to his room today.
Yesterday afternoon, near Eloree^
H. Van Ohsen, Jr., and W. Clem Griffith
made an attempt to stop and arrest
these young men, taking them
for automobile thieves. They asked
for the warrant and when none could
be produced, refused to be arrested
and one of them shot Mr. Van Ohsen
in the shoe, tje ball going between
his toes, inflicting very slight injury.
One of the men \vas armed when the
a-ttack was made upon Mr. Bull.
Eloree, April 6.?As a result of a
most daring holdup and attempt upon
his life, E. L. Bull, a prosperous farmer
of the Antioch church section of
Orangeburg county, five miles west of
Parlers, is seriously wounded'and two
young white men, strangers in the
community, are themselves badly cut
and bruised and one has a pistol ball
through his left leg:.
Last night about 8 o'clock two
young white men called at the home
of E. L. Bull and prevailed on him to
take them to Parlers to catch the
train. Mrs. Bull offered to give them
supper but they declined, saying they
were in a hurry. On their way to;

church and near Evans' mill pond, the
stronger of the two men seized Mr.
Bull, holding him while his partner
proceeded to belabor Mr. Bull over
the head with a large bludgeon. Although
Mr. Bull's arms were tightly
pinioned he managed to disengage
his right hand and reach his knife
with which he slashed right and left
and cut the left wrist of one of his antagonists
clear across the arm to the
bone, and the face of the other from
ear to ear. These wounds forced his
assailants to let go their grip when
Mr. Bull seized his pistol and shot one
of the men in the fleshy part of the
left leg just below the knee, the ball
going clear through the leg. Had norf
Mr. Bull been a man of powerful
strength physically he would have
been at the mercy of the two high
The alarm was given and soon Pet
Way, a deputy from Calhoun county,
and Henry Ballard, constable for
Magistrate Jesse Bardin of Elloree,
were on the scene and arrested the
two men and brought them to Elloree
where th&ir wounds were attended to
by Dr. Pelham L. Felder.
They hesitated to give their names
at first, but finally said they were

SEASON TICKETS CAUSE I
GREAT INCREASE ON GAMES I
Have you noticed the big increase
in attendance at our ball games this
i year over previous years? There is ^
! no doubt but that the season tickets
are largely responsible for this. You
j may rest assured that your patronage ^
j is greatly appreciated by the friends
of the college. We have no hesitancy
in saving that those who have in:
vested in season tickets will get their
; money's worth in return. The game e<
last Thursday with the Citadel is fair
indication of what the baseball fans s?
in Newberry have in store for them ri
; this season. There will be ajout ten ;u
more games on the local diamond, jrt
with the football and basketball sea- j*1
son yet to come. If you have not al- ;tc
ready bought your ticket it is not too J ^
late to do so now. You will still get ' ^
your monev!s worth. Fall in line and
help us get that new gymnasium. The j e(
, r.sw athletic 'field has already been ;
'laid off, and we are only waiting for j ^
the beard of trustees to say the word, 1 *r
' when we will begin work on it. Let's ! *s

I Every one who has grown cotton tl

I found out that this pest seems to w
jthrive during" wet spells. We call our
J readers' attention to an article in our
i field department by Prof. Paul Tabor, y(
I in which he shows that only one year
, in six do we have a dry July or Au- 01
I ornsr? So we have only one chance
in six years to make a July or August el
crop of cotton. Prof. Tabor has w
looked up the records for over 40
years and hence his conclusions can ^
be safely relied upon. Every section P(
has consoled itself with the belief a
that some peculiar climate conditions w
were going to render the boll weevil 1
! less destructive for them. But alas! ai
' As far as the eastern portion of the 1
; cotton belt is concerned the facts are P?
against us, and we had as well realize ?*
that cotton is to be given up only on
| a small area, where the most stub- st

COAL STRIKERS AND
MINER'S BLOC MAKES APPEARANCE
Representative Ricketts Force* Open
Consideration of Strike Against
Opposition of Leader
By John Goldstram
Washington, April 7.?Striking
coal miners and their families in the
Hocking valley are starving, Conjgress
was told on ithe floor of the
house today by Representative Edwin
D. Ricketts, Republican, Ohio,
himself a former miner.
Ricketts forced open consideration
of the strike against the opposition
of Republican Floor Leader Mondell
and signalized the first appearance in
congress of a miner's bloc. Into action
with him went Chairman Nolan
of the house labor committee which
has been hearing testimony from iboth.
sides; Edward E. Denison, Illinois,
both Republicans and Ben Johnson,
Democrat, Kentucky and Meyer London,
New York city.
First B&ttle Lo?t
They lost their first battle 77 to 69,
on an amendment to the appropriations
bill by Denison prohibiting the
department of justice from using
funds to prosecute combinations of
labor organizations in the interest of
higher wages and better working conditions.
MnrtHell. detendinicr the administra
tion led the opposition to the amendment.
"This amendment would show Jack
01 faith in the officers of our govern- .
ment and would accuse th?m of a motive
to persecute instead of prosecute."
An amendment by JoMoii to Include
farmers with organiifei fafeor
was voted, 75 to ()C. After a substitute
amendment by London to couple
the two amendments had 'been lost
60 to 48. Denison'fc original amendment
Most of the afternoon was given to
- * : * ?i!:^u
discussion ot tne amendments, wniuu
Mondell said because he wanted the
house to get through with the appropriation
Ricketts contended that the coal
strike crisis constituted the most important
condition before the country
"In my district/' he said "there are
126 mines and more than 6,000 miners.
In the last year ^hey have work- ^
ed less than 100 days at an average
scale of $7.50 a day, earning less
than $750 in the last twelve months,
$14.40 a week.
"The propaganda spread throughout
the country to the effect that high
wages are to blame for the coal prices
is absolutely false. Many of the strik-.
ers, their wives and children in the
Hocking valley district are starving
today, I know of 127 families which
arp rpreivinsr charity.
"It is highly .important, the most
important thing before the country
today that an agreement be reached
between the miners and the operators
and the strike ended."
Nolan, himself a former leader of
organized labor in California voted
j with the labor and farmer arrendments.

of the bill to have the president appoint

One Witness Heard
The only witness before the house
labor committee today was John
Brophy, president of the United Mine
