Control of the Russian famine until
the next harvest, Governor Goodrich
asserted, was purely a question
of railway transportation, the ''degenerated
administration and equipment

as to the conctinued movement

enough supplies on the way to Russia

was every indication that the seed

in Russia, mnrp narticularlv in the

NEWBERRY AND CAROLINA
PLAY TO TIE
Gamecocks and Indians Play Twelve
Innings? Score Seven to
Newberry and Carolina battled to
a 12 inning draw at Newberry Thursday
afternoon, it being necessary to
call the* game on account of darkness.
Luther pitched a great game, allowing
the Gamecocks only five scattered hits
but he received erratic support. Two
of the hits off his delivery were home
runs by Snipes and Balk. Peters for
the visitors was wild and was hit
hard, he being driven from the mound
in the sixth. Wallace, who relieved
him, pitched better ball but he was
wild also. Luther d:d not walk a
man. It seems that each team tried
to see which could put up the most
erratic exhibition in the field, al-(
though during: the last several innings
the fieldirg of both nines was clean
and snappy, not a run being- scored
after the seventh. D. Shealy and
Gilliam played senrational ball in
the field for Newberry anu their work
was about the only br _ht feature of
the game. Gressette of the visitors j
made a spectacular catch in the centerfield.

'numerous names mentioned |
in race for governor
Columbia, April 21.?The announcement
that Former Congress!
man A. Frank Lever is to be head of
' the new joint land bank in Columbia
has revived talk throughout the state
1 as to who will be the next governor.
i Mr. Lever had been considered by
many as a possible candidate for the
governorship, but his definite announcement
of other plans is thought
by many to leave the way open for
announcement by some other good
man. It is said that several good
men in the state are in a receptive
mood, and will probably put their
hats in the ring, now that the atmosphere,
has cleared up, so far as Mr.
Lever's position is concerned. It is expected
that the next few weeks will
brinir develooments in the political
To many the recent discussion of
the possibility of Hon. John Gary
Evans, of Spartanburg:, as candidate
xor governor, is taken to mean that
he will be in the race. Mr. Evans has
been in Columbia several times lately
and during- the recent legislative
session he was seen several times on
the floors of the assembly. This is
taken as a pretty good sign that a political
bee is buzzing in his bonnet.
Numerous names are mentioned in
connection, with the race for governor
including those of Mr. Evans, Hen
ry Tillman of Greenwood; Co1. J.
Mon Johnson of Marion; Dr. D. W.
Daniels of Clemson college. Col.
Holmes Springs of Greenville; Dr. 01in
Sawyer of Georgetown; D. R. Coker
of-Hartsville; Dr. Geoige B. Cromer
of Newberry; Senator Proctor
Bonhain of Greenville; K. M. Cooper
Jr., of Waysacki; Christie Benet of
Columbia; and State Superintendent
of Education John E Swearingen of
Columbia. Former Governor El ease
and A. J. Bethea have announced
It is said that the anti-Blease forces
will have a candidate in the race,
one who has not yet announced himself.
Who this man will be is not
known, but with the time approaching
for the meetings of the Demo

THE JNO. M. KINARD CAMP
SONS CONFEDERATE VETERANS
The Jno. M. Kinard camp, Sons of
Confederate Veterans, held its regular
annual meeting on last Wednesday.
Charles A. Bowman was elected
commander and Mr. L. A. Boozer adjutant.
Commander Bowman was authorized
to appoint three delegates to the
state reunion at Darlington and three
to the general reunion at Richmond.
Messrs. J. B. Hunter, I. H. Hunt
and J. X. McCaughrin were appointed
a committee to provide for quarterly
meetings at homes of members, and
a program, on the adoption of a resolution
to that effect.
If any Confederate veteran is unable
financially to go to Richmond his
expenses will be defrayed, if he will
let it be known. This action is highly
commendable and shows a true
spirit of brotherly love.
Memorial exercises and the dinner
which is given annually to the veterans
and their wives by the Sons of
Veterans and the Daugnters. of the
Confederacy will be held this year on
May 3rd, instead of May 10th, as is

Russo-German Incident Not Settled

Genoa, April 20 (By the Associated

was tonight without a definite settle- ;
ment of the Russo-German incident
after a day given over to private con- j
versations, conferences between the
Germans and Russians and all sorts ,
of entente and a great assembly of '
the world's press, called 'jy Premier
Lloyd George, who addressed the
newspaper representatives of 40 na-.

posed by the allies and that the Rus- j

report would be such that _

After Lloyd Geige had made !
his statement, the Germans announc-;

their reply to the note of the big and,
little entente, denying them admis-1
sion to the conference unless the Rus- '
so-German treaty was rescinded or at j
least amended and approved by the :
conference. The Germans are said to
be divided in their relations. This is;
the reason for their delay in coming'
to e decision for submission to the
allies. The Russians also have with-'
held official publication of their reply
to the London experts' report which j
had been promised for today.
In short the day closed with no def
inite advance over the position of the 1
previous day but with a general feeling
that the Germans will take an !

satisfied with the text of the protest;
decided not to present the resolution. ;
This spokesman added that the'

not willing to pay a price without limit
merely to bring a^out a successful

statement regarding the Prosperity

formed: "The Prospedity
Guernsey Bull association in Newberry
county holds much hope for that
section as a dairy development unit.
Besides the distinct progressive step
toward breeding of better dairy stock
or more refined type and productive
capacity it serves as a distinct community
unit through which much constructive
development work may be
I carried out. This implies that proper
feeding of a balanced mixture of
home grown feeds, care and feeding
of young growing- stock, planning of
new and reconstruction of old farm
buildings suitable to dairying and
proper care anu niuncigeiiidii> ui uau^
products to the end that they might
be marketed to the best advantage
and for the best price. Any community
well adapted to dairying and
which becomes strongly founded on a
dairying basis through the sale of
sour cream becomes involved in a di\
versified system of farming which
makes for a prosperous community
and one which is always more stable
through years of depression. The
Prosperity community has a distinct
advantage through its new association
and has the above goal easily within
