VOLUME LVIII, NUMBER 41. NEWBERRY, S. C., TUESDAY, MAY 23, 1922. TWICE A WEEK, $2.00 A YEAR
CAN TAKE CHOICE
OF TWO METHODS
JOHNSTONE ADVISED AS TO
^ If He Acccpts Placc Vacated by
Harvey Will Lose Seat?Not
If Neccssary to Qualify
The State, 19th.
Attorney General Wolfe yesterday
advised Senator Alan Johnstnoe of
Newberry, president pro tern of the
senate, that in case Senator Johnstone
acted as lieutenant governor
and as such assumed the duties of
president of the senate, he would vacate
hits seat as senator from New
At the same time Mr. Wolfe informed
Mr. Johnston 2 that in case he
does not accept and qualify as lieutenant
governor, he will retain his
seat in the senate as senator from
Newberry county, and the office of
lieutenant governor will remain vacant.
Senator Johnstone doe6 not wish to
become lieutenant governor if he
must vacate his seat in the senate and
last week he asked the attorney general
for an opinion in the matter.
1 Mr. Wolfe, in his letter, further declares
that construing Sections 7 and
6 of the constitution as necessarily
correlated, that in ease Senator Johnstone
takes the place of the lieutenant
governor, he must take the place
in fa^e "for he thereby forfeits and
vacates his seat in the senate."
Letter of Wolfe
Mr. Wolfe's letter is as follows:
"Replying to your inquiry relative
rto your preserving your status as
state senator.in the general assembly
from "Newberry county, in view of
the resignation of the governor and
the consequent vacancy in the ofllce
cf lieutenant governor, I advise that
by virtue of your holding the office
of president pro tempore of the senate,
under the organization of that
body, you would, pursuant to Secftion
8, Article 4 of the constitution
vacate your seat as senator in the
event you acted as lieutenant governor
and as such assumed his duties
as president of the senate.
"The senate is an* inseparable
branch of the general assembly, and
only functions when th3t body is in
"Section 5, Article 4 of the cousti4
^ tution provides that a lieutenant governor
shall be chosen at the same
Siss time, in the same manner, continue
in the office for the same period, and
be possessed of the same qualification!
as the governor, and shall exofficio
be president of the senate.
"Section 7 of the same article of
the constitution provides thht the
senate shall, as r,oon as practicable
I after the convening of the general
assembly, choose a president pro tempore
to act in the absence of the lieutenant
2rovernor, or when he shall fill
the office of governor.
"Section 8 of the same article of
the constitution provides that a member
of the senate, acting as governor
!>-= or lieutenant governor, shall thereupon
vacate h'r? seat and another perk
son be elected in his stead.
V "Your term of office as senator
doe-, not expire, as I understand it,
until two years hence, whereas, at
t the convening: of the next general assembly
there will be a new organization
of that body, involving on the
part of the senate the choosing of a
president pro tempore to act in the
absonce of the lieutenant governor,
who has assumed the duties and office
of governor of the state.
/ "Construing Section 7 and Section
8 as necessarily correlated, the con
elusion follows that where the president
pro tempore ta^es the place of
the lieutenant governor, he must take
the place of such office in fact, for
he thereby forfeits and vacates his
seat in the senate.
Must Be Acceptance
"Throop on Public Officers, 1892
edition. Section 164, at page 173, lays
do\Mi this principle in such cases: 'An
appointment or election to an office
is insufficient to \est the title v) the
office in the person chosen, without
proof of his acceptance thereof.'
This principle is enunciated in the
case of Mitchell vs. Jones, reported
in S.'C., 487.

DOUBLE TRAGEDY IN MULLINS !
ONE GUN SHOOTS TWO j
R. Miles SHooU Ben Snyder and Then
Mullins, May 18.?Bon Snyder's
condition seems to be improving. His
mother, from Baltimore, arrived thi*
morning to be at his bedside.
j Mullins, May 18.? R. Mites, who
i was the oldest clothing merchant of
Mullins, is dead, and Ben Snyder
probably fatally wounded as the result
of a clash yesterday. Miles shot
Snyder and then killed himself, and
the coroner's jury so declared after
an inquest. :
The tragedy occurred in Mr. Snyder's
store* After Mr. Snyder was
seen running from the store, blood on
his clothing, and followed by his
wife, who was panic stricken. Chief
of Police Williamson entered and
found Mr. Miles lying on his f;-ce
, with a pistol .32-caliber lying near
his right side. Examination by the
officer showed that there were two
i empty cartridges and it was supposed
that Mr. Miles shot Mr. Snyder and
then turned the gun on himself. The
bullet that killed Mr. Miles entered
the right temple and blew his brains
out. The bullet was later picked up
by Chief Williamson on the floor
, within three feet of where Mr. Miles
While examinations were being
made Snyder talked freely and stated
, that while they would not inform him
! that Miles was dead he felt sure he
was as he saw Miles put the pistol to
, his temple and saw -the shot fired.
! Miles falling on his face.
It-appears that Mrs. Snyder was
; the only person in the store besides
| the two principals to the tragedy and
! she was over on the dry goods side
j with a wall separating them. On
: hearing the shots she is said to have
; run to the scene, being met by Snyder
who was reported as saying to her
that "Miles has killed me." He staggered
on out to the door.
Mr. Snyder gave it as his opinion
thai Mr. Miles was momentarily ipsane.
He repeated this assertion ti: .e
and again and further said that Mr.
Miles entered the store in the early
morning and wanted settlement for
an iron safe whkh he had sold to
Snyder, and contended for a sum in
excess of the agreed price.
It is said that since Mr. Miles recently
sold his business he had been
very much di^atisfied and had frequently
remarked that a man without
a job w:.6 miserable. He was about
sixty years old and leaves a widow
and one son, Edgar, aged twelve, a
student in a school in Charleston.

Just who is college champions in

members of the University of

that they considered this would be

he faculty, representative to stulents,
players and fans from Newjerry
visited the sport writers and
pressed their claim.
Newberry first contends that the
[ndians have played more games than
,he Gamecocks and that as both teams
lave an average of 750 points in the
percentage column that they feel
dewberry has the best claim to the
;'tle. Another reason set up is that
Sfewberry and Erskine had agreed
prior to the game that the game at
Greenwood between these two teams
vould be an exhibition game and they
"urther hold that they have informa;ion
from Major Rhame of the Citadel
that the Citadel had considered
he Carolina Citadel game in Greenwood
as a regular scheduled game.
Another point at issue is that Carolina
did not play WofTord or Pres--11
oyrenan cuue^e. xue uan.tv.ji.iic
did not have a game scheduled with
Presbyterian. Both games with Wofford,
one at Columbia and another

The same is true between Newberry
and Presbyterian college, the two
:eams having met twice and each
having won a game.
Carolina claims that it has met
the important teams of the state and
fViom TVip Camecocks

the Bjrds having practically elimin3ted
the Tigers ffom the titular contest
in the game here last Saturday.
Another claim entered by the Game?ocks
is that they have not been defeated
by Newberry, the first game
n the Indians' camp having resulted
n a seven-all draw, and the game
here Wednesday being a decision in
Favor of the Garnet and Black.
The Carolina players do not think

Just what will be the outcome of

There is no method of awarding a

GOOD WILL COME OF GENOA
' Think That Achievements at Genoa
Will Live and Contribute to
i Genoa, May 19.?The dominant
thought in Genoa tor ght as the del'
egations to the economic conference
* ; i- J 4.
were leaving or preparing tu uepait,
seemingly was that, although the
conference was a thing of the past
as far as Genoa is concerned, its
achievements would live and contribute
much to the pacification and reconstruction
| The officials of some of the sraali:
er states undoubtedly will go home
disappointed, perhaps angry, because
their troubles have not been settled
at Genoa. Lithunia, for example, is
chagrined that Genoa has not chased

But as a whole the belief prevails
that the Genoa conference, despite
disputes which almost pushed Europe
to the edge of a precipice, has resulted
in the beginning of better understandings
between the nations of Europe.
including Russia. Even official
France admitted that tonight.
France, which came here reluctantly,
almost suspiciously, goes away
with more confidence. Louis Barthou,
vice premier in the French cabinet
and France's chief delegate to
the conference, in his final words to
the press tonig'hV declared if was his
conviction that the Genoa conference
which he called the "child ofCannes''
was today in good -health, ilfia ikat he
saw no reason why the infant could
not journey safely to the Haggle and
fhprp thrive arid Dresner.
The question whether the Russian
problem will so develop as to make
possible later participation by the
i United States in its solution was the
great subject of discussion tonight.
David Lloyd George, who has hurried
back to England, has not accom!
plished everything he hoped for, but
today found him in rare good humor
as the conference held its closing session.
The conference adjourned after
adopting a provisional non-aggression
pact, approving arrangements for the
Hague meeting and adopting the re
purl UI llie CCUIIUllllt- 1.1/lliMliooiuil niuii
its recommendations for the rebuilding
of disorganized Europe. ,
1 Admittedly, everything now depends
on tjhe Russian Communists.
If they continue a*> intransigent in
Holland as in Italy, there seems little
i prospect of an agrement with Russia.
Meanwhile the desperate straits of
the Russian people are in the minds
of all the delegates. As one of them
said tonight, "every possible effort
will be made to save the valiant Russian
people from suffering and death.
Even the Communists are Russians,
and perhaps they will understand.'*
