From 1:30 to 3-Will Erd
Each Evening at 6 O'clock.
Th? spring terni of the court of
general sessions fur Anderson Coun
ty ??is convened yesterday morning
at lo o'clck. with Judge Krank li.
(iary of Abbeville, presiding;, lt was
nearly ll o'clock bet?re the court had
been organized, the delay being taus- ?
ed by the tardiness of one of the grand j
Jurors. When this man arrived Mr. i
James lt. Anderson was appointed
foreman cf thc tribunal and the
wheels of thc court machinery were
set In motion.
The court's charge to the grand
Jury was a particularly strong one. As
this was the tirst tinte some of thc
members had been c alled as grand Ju
ofsr, the court took occasion to re
mind them of the responsibility that
rests upon them. Ile stated that the
grand jury was in charge of the list al
affairs of Anderson County and di
rectors of the county for the year
1915. Ile pointed out to them that
nint h of the responsibility for observ
ante of the law rested upon their
shoulders, and that it was their duty
to present for prosecution hot only
those defendants named in warrants
handed them by thc solicitor but any
violator of the law against whom they
Judge Gary admonished the grand
Jurors that the affairs of the county
were In their keeping and that If any
employee of the county was not doing
his duty it is their business to see
that he does. He advised the grand
jury to make frequent and thorough
examination of the books of the coun
ty officials, to give prope:* attention to
the roads of tho county and to the
poor, win? have no other source to
look to but the gr?hd Jury. Ile re
minded them that the public schools
of the county were in their cure and
cautioned them to see that tho affairs
of these institutions arc always prop
Tile court suggested to the grand
jury that they ask the county delega
tion to havo enacated the necessary
legislation providing for the drawing
of a panel of 20 or more talismen for
grand jury duty and the selection of
the first 18 of these who reported for
duty when court convened. This sug
gestion was prompted by the delay
due to the tardiness of one of the
--.Judge <3mry stressed the vital im
portance of enforcement of the law
against the sale of blind tiger whis
key and tho carrying of pistols, as
these two sins are responsible for
more lawlessness than any other
agents that could he found.
Upon the convening of court the fol
lowing talismen were excused: J., VV
Sanders, J. X. Owens, John B. Adger.
J. C. Busby. W. C. King and S. C.
Bean. To take the place of these and
proviue other Ju.ors, an extra veuli'e
wag ordered drawn. '
Judge Gary announced that the
hours of court would be from 9:30 a.

BRYAN REPLIES TO
DOES NOT CONSIDER HY
SELS OF WAR
CAN ONLY BE

Germany Says They Must Be Re
garded as War Vessels and De
livery Should Be Stopped.
(Hy Awwint?) Prras.)
WASHINGTON, Feb. I. -In reply to
Germany's protest against the buihl
Ing of hydro-aeroplam ;a by American
manufacturers for England and Rus
sia, Secretary Hryan has informed (he
German ambassador that the State de
partment does not concur in the con
tention the*, such erafi are vessels of
war "who~e delivery ,to belligerent
States hy neutrals si:.mid be stopped.
The correspondence on thc subject
was made public today hy Mr. Hryan.
On January 19, Count von Berns
torff wrote the secretary of State, say
ing hydro-aeroplanes were being sold
to the allies, detailing the companies'
by which tho parts were built and ad
'There ls no doubt that hydro
aeroplanes must be regnrdeil a? wai
vessels whose- delivery to belligerent
States by neutrals should be stopped
under article,8 of the -3th conven
tion of the second Hague conference
of October 18,1907. Hydro-aeroplanes
are not mentioned hy name in the con
vention simply because there waB none
in 1?07, at the time of the conference.
"On tho supposition that hydro
aeroplanes are delivered to belli
gerents against the wishes of the gov
ernment of tho United Stales, I have
thc honor to bring? thc foregoing to
your excellency's kind knowledge."
Secretary Bryan replied under date
of January 29 as follows:
"Excellency: I have the honor to
acknowledge the receipt of your ex
cellency's note of the 19th instant, and
in reply have to inform you that the
statements contained in your excel
lency's note have received my careful
consideration in view of the earnest
purpose of this government to perform
every duty which Is Imposed upon it
as a neutral hy treaty stipulation and
"Thc essential statement in your
note, which implies an obligation dn
the part of this government to Inter
fere In the sale and delivery of hydro
aeroplanes to belligerent powers is:
" 'There is no doubt that hydro
aeroplanes must be regarded as war
vessels whose delivery to belligerent
States by neutrals should be stopped
under article 8 of the 13th convention
of tho second Hague conference Of
October 18. 1907.'
"As to this assertion of the char
acter of hydro-aeroplancd, I submit
the following comments: Tho fact
that a hyrdoaeropl&ne is fitted i with
apparatus to risc ?rom and alight up
on the sea does not in my opinion give
it the character of a vessel any more
that the sheels attached to an
aeroplane fitting it to rise from and
alight r.pon land give the latter the
.diaracter of a land vehicle. Both the
hvdro-aeroplane and the aero-aero
plane are essentially aircraft;, as an
aid in military operations they can
only be used in the air; the. fact that
one starts its flight from the surface
of the sea and the other from the land
is a mere incident which in no ' way
affects their aerial character.
"In view of these facts I must dis-,
sent from your excellency's assertion
that 'there is no doubt that hydro
aeroplanes must be regarded is war
vessels,' and consequently I do not re
gard the obligations imposed by treaty
or by thc accepted ralea- of inter
national law applicable to aircraft of
. ''In this connection I further call
your excellency's attention that, ac
cording to the latest advices received
by this department, the German Im
perial government include 'balloons
and flying machines and their compo
nent, parts in the list of conditional
contraband, and that in the Imperial
Prize ordinance, drafted September 30,
1909. and Issued In the Reich s
Gestzblatt on August 3, 1915, appear
as conditional contraband 'airships
and flying machines, (article 23,; sec
tion 8). It thus appears that the Im
perial government have n?aced and re
tain aircrafts of all descriptions in
the class of conditional contraband,
for which no spec???! treatment Involv?
lng neutral duty, is so far a3 I am ad
vised, provided by any 'treaty to
which tile United States' is a, signatory
or adhering power.
'?As In thc views of this department
the provisions of convention XIII of
the second Hague conference do no*
apply to hydro-aeroplanes I do no4(
consider lt necessary to discuss, the
questions as to whether those provis
ions are in force during the present
