HOW MEMBERS VOTED
On (ho Question, Which was Adopt
Jt ?Ml by a Largo Majority.-Tho
Molnbers Decido That Usc of Hall
of Repr?sentatives Should bo Glv
611 Only When Thoro Will bo No
Removal of the Carpet.
The house ol' representatives de
cided Thursday that tho now furni
ture should not bo removed, espec
ially tho new carpet, which means
that the South Carolina club must
hereafter seek now quarters for
their annual ball hold during tho
Stale fair. The action of tho houso
wan not taken until thoro had been
considerable debate, but from tho
vote ol' tlie members it could bo seen
from tho start that all parliamentary
?moves to defeat tho exclusion of tho
?-Club would be of no avail.
Mr. Lane's resolution refusing tho
use of the hall of the houso for any
purpose that would necessitate tho
removal of tho carpet was taken up.
Mr. Hanks by the ways and means
committee thought that tho resolu
tion should bo killed. lt would af
fect, the South Carolina club and
their annum ball held in Hie State
houso for years and while lu? did not.
dance himself he thought thal il
would be very small ami narrow on
the part of the members of lue house
lo object to tho use of thc hall by
others. Mr. Hacker spoke along tho
same lines. On motion lo strike out.
the enacting words by Mr. Hanks,
the house refused by a vote of 60 to
GI. f.
Mr. Howell Morrell then spoko in
favor ol' Hie resolution, following
the explanation by Mr. Lane. Tho
latter did not think tho house should
turn over the use of the hall to any
body for any purpose. Mr. Morrell
thought that it was wrong to use tho
hall for balls, oven though they were
attended by some of the leading cit
izens of tho State, including the gov
ernor.
t ?j Mr. Porter Mc.Mastor spoko in fav
Vor of Mr. Banks' motion to kill ile.
resolution as did so voa ri others. Af
ter it was soon that the hill would
pass an effort, was made to exempt
the South Carolina club from
the provisions of Hie var
ious paragraphs. The house, how
ever, killed this by a vote of 64 to
-15. It was decided, however, to al
low the desks to be removed in case
of a convention. Motions to leave
the entire matter With the secretary
of state were killed willi little dis
cussion and finally tho clincher on
tho resolution was put on by Mr.
Sharpe.

known men. Tho amount taken
from Mr. Dont was $19.50, tho money

Mr. Dont was going to his work as
usual and was on Dumber street
within ono und a half blocks of
Malu street. As ho was walking with
his hands In his overcoat pockets
ho was suddenly approached from
behind and before he could realize
what, was happening ho found him
self on the ground wit li two men up
on him. As tho wind was very high.
Mr. Dont did not hear the approach
of tho mon.
When he did realizo what had
happened he felt one of the men
sitting on his head und the other
holding him down by the feet with
ono hand and going through his pock
ets with Jho other. As Mr. Dent's
head was hurled on one slJo in tho
mud that had accumulated on the
street from the recent rains, he could
not see either of the men.
As his pockets were being rifled
tho coat was torn off of Mr. Dent's
buck and th?' shirt he wore was torn
in several places by tho men lu their
haste. When the men had taken the
money and a hunch of keys from the
pockets of Mr. Dent they picked np

WANTS BIGGER NAVY.
The United States Should Have
Two Great Navies
Says Justice Harlan, Who Predicts a
Groat Conflict Soon Hctwcen tho
Yellow and tho White Races,
A great conflict between tho yel
low and tho white races was tho
prediction made by Justice John M.
Harlan, of tho United States su
preme court, In an address at tho
third annual dinner of tho Navy
League of tho United Stales at the
Now Willard in Washington recent
ly.
Justice Harlan said, In part.
"if I had the opportunity I would
vote for an appropriation of $50,
000,000 Q year for a period of ten
years for a larger navy. Tho groat
importance of a navy is shown In
tho constitution, which restricts tho
appropriation for the army, but sets
no limit for thoso for the navy. There
is no such thing as friendship be
tween nations as between men. Na
tions make no sacrifices to preserve
friendships, and don't forbear to do
certain things because it does not
meet with tho approval of another
nation.
"I don't care how large a navy wo
have, but I want to soc a navy largo
enough to take caro of the Pnclllc
and Atlantic oceans and our ports
on those oceans.
"Tho trend of Immigration of tho
white people in the past have been
from East to West. There has been
none from tho West. Just across tho
water there ls a country with an im
mense population, whose commerce '
we are socking. Wo refer to the
people of Asia as tho yellow race. 1
There are 4 00.000,000 Chinese, as 1
good physically and mentally as ?
we are. There is over there another '.
nation whose people aro progressive ?
und ambitious. Wo may some day 1
see a skilled anliy of Japan of 5,00 0,
000 to 10,000,000. They will say: 1
'You claim Europe as your country.
This is ours. Get out!' I don't think 1
they hilve any such Idea now, and wo 1
have no hostility, toward them. Put 1
1 acre will bo U conflict butweou tho :
yellow race and tho white race that 1
will shako the earth. When it conies '
1 want to seo this country with a '
navy on both oceans that will bo 1
strong enough. '

A VILE PLOT.
Brazilian Police Discover Sehe rn?
to Destroy American Fleet
AT RIO DE JANERIO.
Foreign Anarchists Aro Deeply In
volved.-All tho Conspirators Fled
to tlie Interior.-Every Precaution
Will Ile Taken to Provent Injury
to tlie Ships of the! Fleet, and tho
Police Say AH D?nger Is Over.
A dispatch from Rio do Jnnoiro,
?razll, says that the polico have dis
covered an anarchist plot having aa
its object tho destruction of part of
tho American fleet now lying In tho
harbor. The conspiracy, while cen
tering in Rio de Janorlo and Petropl
lis, has ramifications in Son Paulo
and Minas Geraes.
An individual named Joan Fedher,
who resides in Petropolis, was tho
chief conspirator at Rio do Janorlo,
although lt is understood that for
eign anarcnists are deeply involved
In th o plot. Fedher has fled to,
Sao Paulo, and tho polfco who know
him have boen sent to that place for
tho purpose of apprehending him.
One of the detectives, who was
woll acquainted with Fedhor, hav
ing served on the polico forco at Pe
tropolis for some time, returned
from that place Sunday, after hav
ing made investigations there and
had a long conference with tho
chief of police at Rio do Janorlo.
Tho latter let it be understood
later that tho Sao Paulo police aro
JU tho track of tho arch conspirator
[ind expected to arrest him soon. In
in official note which the chief of
police sent to the correspondent of
Lhe Associated Press he says:
"Some time before tho arrival <x
Lhe American fleet at Rto do Janeno.
the Brazilian government received
from Washington and Paris advices
that anarchists of .different nation
alities intended to damage ono or
io /oral of tho sh ipa el' thc American
loot. The names and addresses of
tho conspirators were indicated by
Information which tho polico had re
ceived previously from France and
germany. Tho police of this district
ire working with the polico of Sao
Paulo and Minas Geraes and I am
sure every precaution will be exer
cised and the most rigorous vigilance
(bsorvod both on land and at soa to
prevent any injury being done."
The chief of police, after having
made this ollleial statement said that,
ho did not feel he should go into any
further details with regard to tho
conspiracy, but he authorized tho
statement that the plot was organ
ized by Fedhor and he added that;
tho people of tho United Statos could
rest easy, as all of the conspirator?
had taken refuge in tho intorior.
The people of tho interior aro ig
norant of the details of the p?ot to
io injury to the visiting vessels, al
though there has boen some slight
Inkling Of the matter. Tho impres
sion which the exposure of this plot
will make will bo profound, because
lt is tho first anarchist conspiracy
that lins ever been known in Brazil.
The police of Sao Paulo have sent
word that they aro on tho track of
tho malefactors, who, they declare,
will not bo able to come to Rio do
Janorlo.
