MEETING WITH SUCCESS
Dr. Knotts Reports Many Taking the
The fact that 450 people came ou1
last week to get the typhoid treat
ment is very encouraging and is indicative
of the fact that the preliminary
pHnr>fltinnal camDaisrn was entireh
worth while. It is strange the difference
in the response in different com
munities. It happens that in the
larger communities that very fev,
take advantage of this splendid preventative,
Whitmire, Prosperity anc
Newberry accounting for only a'boul
40 of the total number while at Longshore
store 84 are taking the treatment,
Little Mountain about GO, and
the Brick House, 68. The fact that

dreadlul disease in the county is responsible
for some of the responses
to the treatment.
Jalapa, Kinards, Helena and Maybinton
have tbeen dropped from the
schedule as there was little or no response
in these communities. Others
have been added, however: At Mr.
H. L. Boozer's house every Wednesday
at 3 o'clock; Longshore store every
Wednesday at 4 to 5 o'clock; Red

I BY GOV. HARVEY
; Handled a Delicate Situation in a !
Skillful Manner j
t j Columbia, June 2G.?The story of
. j how Governor Harvey averted what
. f would in all probability have been a
r J lynching came to light here today,'
t i and when asked about the matter ihe
. ' governor corroborated the facts. The
. I story is all told, two weeks ago, a
> sequel to the recent killing at Ponr
tiac, in Richland county, of Clarence
. King by his wife, Aileen King,
[ and the story is full of interest.
A negro woman, who, Mrs. King
. hats stated, had consumed the in'j*-;
. est and attention of her husband, to
[ her own embarrassment, for which ;
. she shot him, left Richland county
. and went to her father's home in a
little Darlington county town. Two
, weeks ago a delegation of respected
white citizens from the little town
called on Governor Harvey and told
> him they wanted the woman to leave
their community. The men told the
governor they had told the woman to
leave their town and her father had
resented the order. The negro parent
had secured arms and prepared his
: home for a fight and was prepared to
. barricade himself in the house, mak.
ing it known to the white men of the
town that he resented their ordering
. his daughter away and he proposed to
fight for his rights. Feeling in the
community was intense, and the governor
was told that the situation bor-.
?dered on an eruption.
The delegation told Governor Harvey
that,they did not want trouble,
but that they proposed to see their,
original order enforced; chat the wo-'
1 man must leave, but that they feared
} trouble would result, and that while
' they wanted to prevent bloodshed, (
^ ' > l - -1 1 J- -a. _f?_ iL .:
i tney woui^i not detract irom tneir orj
der. The governor told the men he
1 would prevent trouble, if it meant :
calling the troops. , I
1 Governor Harvey says he saw that
; , there would be serious trouble, and
; | he set about to work out a plan. He
1 , told the men to go back home and
' let the matter stand, unaltered, for
' j forty-eight hours.
' j In the meanwhile Governor Karve^
' | called in a state constable, one w't>
! whom he is closely conversant. He
laid the matter before him, and the
matter was discussed thoroughly. The '
constable went to Darlington and ini
vcastigated the situation. The father
j | of the negro woman repeated to him
j the threat that he wrould fight to pro!
tect his daughter from the white citik!
zens. The constable then consulted
[' the woman. He told her the governor
i would call out troops, if necessary,
; to protect her, but that in any event
'! there might bp blood shed, possibly
11 the loss of her life. He told her that
; he might bring her to the penitentiary
. ! for safe-keeping, but that she would
_ j not want to be lodged in prison, there
. j being no charge against her. He ofj
fered to give her safe conduct to the
j border of the state and finally she
agreed to leave. The officer took her
